Mysterious explosions of the sea min. USA are explained


Scientists of the University of Colorado Boulder and the National center of atmospheric researches of the USA have proved that during the war in Vietnam the geomagnetic storm was the cause of spontaneous explosions of sea mines. The Gizmodo edition reports about it. In 1972 US Navies have performed the operation "Pocket Money" within which several strategic North Vietnamese ports have been mined. On August 4 crew members of the plane as a part of Task force 77 have noticed explosions to the south from Haiphong. In only 30 seconds 20-30 explosions have been recorded, 25-30 sites of muddy water were also observed that indicates what was more than explosions. As the declassified documents of Naval Forces testify, officials of the USA almost have at once begun to consider the version about influence of extreme solar activity. However it was unknown whether this factor could influence mines really. According to conclusions of scientists, one of the reasons of a sudden detonation was the fact that mines were magnetic, that is they reacted to magnetic fields of the purpose. During the period from August 2nd to August 4th in the field of MR 11976 where the group of solar spots has been located, there was a series of flashes and coronal emissions of weight which have reached Earth in 14,6 hours. Failures not only in mines, but in power supply and cable lines have resulted. It is more than important news in Film of Day Telegram-channel. Subscribe!
