エリア51の敷地内から不吉な雲が発生していた。

0_e7


 ネバダ州ラスベガスの北西に位置する「エリア51」は長い間政府機密事項とされており、その存在は「公然の秘密」とされていた。2015年3月15日、米中央情報局(CIA)は、「エリア51」の存在を認める文書を公開し、ようやくその存在が明らかとなったのである。発表された内容によると、冷戦時代に米政府が開発したU2型偵察機の試験場というのがエリア51の存在理由であるが、それでも陰謀論を唱える人々は懐疑的な目で見ている。

 そしてこの映像なのだが、撮影されたのは2012年8月、エリア51が公式に認められていない時のものだ。なんと敷地内からキノコ雲とも思える煙がもうもうと立ち上がっているのである。

 アメリカ人カップルが車内から撮影したこの映像は最近になって公開された。

Digital panel of Hong Kong

This amazing stacked architecture of Hong Kong shows the housing of its rather dense population. It’s visually striking to understand that your whole horizon is built from people’s lit windows. It shocks you that each life so big and important to the person himself and his close circle looks just like a tiny star in a huge sky next to millions of the same stars. Location: Hong Kong (Photo and caption by Julia Wimmerlin / National Geographic Travel Photographer of the Year Contest)

Ballet dancer

God Shiva’s Temple festival in Jejuri

Devotees carrying the palki, sedan chair, of Shiva. The Shiva’s Temple, known as Khandoba locally, is a very famous temple situated in the town of Jejuri, in Maharashtra, India. Every year on the day of Somvati Amavasya – a no moon day – thousands of devotees arrives at the temple. The festival’s main ritual is offering of turmeric powder by the devotees. Such large quantities of turmeric powder are used that all the devotees and the temple ground are covered in yellow colour of the turmeric. Location: Jejūri, Maharashtra, India (Photo and caption by Aashit Desai / National Geographic Travel Photographer of the Year Contest)

Pak Tai Festival

Performances of Chinese opera are usually held in a mat-shed at the Pak Tai Temple in Taipa village. In this small temporary make-up room built solely with bamboo and iconic red-blue-white plastic bags, over 10 performers are preparing for the show.

Face to Face

Wherever you go, I will follow you!!

Romance is in the air. It was the time of day immediately following sunset. I heard a voice. “Wherever you go, I will follow you” the voice says. Location: Biei, Hokkaido, Japan (Photo and caption by Hiroki Inoue /National Geographic Travel Photographer of the Year Contest)

Timeless Lunch

l was invited into the home of my guide and I stayed for lunch. This picture for me captures the comfortable relationship between the husband and wife and a thoughtful moment.

Early morning on Skye

An hours walk on a cold Winter’s morning was needed to get to this location. Looking back over the Trotternish Ridge from the Quirrang on the Isle of Skye is one of my favourite locations. Location: Flodigarry, Scotland, United Kingdom (Photo and caption by Andy Dines / National Geographic Travel Photographer of the Year Contest)

Jonas Blizzard and the Flatiron Building

While walking through the Jonas Winter Storm that swept across the East Coast last week, I captured this shot of the Flatiron Building against a backdrop of swirling snow. With the exception of a few minor details like logos and a food cart, the image looks like an impressionist right out of another another century. The cloudy atmosphere and gusty winds creates patterns that appear uncannily like brush strokes. Location: New York City, New York, United States (Photo and caption by Michele Palazzo / National Geographic Travel Photographer of the Year Contest)

Bond Between Friends

Shot in Sakrebailu Elephant Camp, Shimoga, India. This camp works towards rehabilitating rescued elephants from circuses and human animal conflict zones. The elephants are trained here by experienced Mahouts and forms a lasting bond between the two. Every morning these Mahouts get their elephants for a bath in the nearby river. This is also when people are allowed to interact with the elephants. Location: Shimoga, Karnataka, India (Photo and caption by Aditya D. / National Geographic Travel Photographer of the Year Contest)

Muscle Beach Gym

Peaks & Penguins in Antarctic Sunrise

Stunning peaks & thousands of King Penguins on South Georgia in soft early sunrise. The photography challenge was to resist shooting only Penguin close-ups (very tempting for sure) & step back occasionally to be equally amazed by the landscape in which they live. Special Bonus: It was 100 years to the month that Shackelton’s boat (Endurance) finally went under the Antarctic pack ice (Nov 1915), precipitating his epic traverse of South Georgia, before finding help at nearby Stromness (1916). Location: South Georgia (Photo and caption by Shivesh R. / National Geographic Travel Photographer of the Year Contest)

The Snow Tree

During a snow storm I decided to head over to Bryce Canyon NP and enjoy the freshly fallen snow. Visibility was down to almost zero, but then I found this single tree right next to a snow drift and knew this would be my shot. Location: Bryce Canyon, Utah, United States (Photo and caption by Yvonne Baur / National Geographic Travel Photographer of the Year Contest)

On the top

New York, Rio, Tokyo? We are on a rooftop bar in Ho-Chi-Minh, Vietnam. The day leaves, the night comes. But this coming city never sleeps. Location: Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam (Photo and caption by Caroline Micaela Hauger / National Geographic Travel Photographer of the Year Contest)

The dictator’s dream

The “Palazzo della Civiltà Italiana”, was imagined and built as a great symbol of fascism for the world. Like many of Rome’s iconic buildings, this relic of dark hours that came and passed is now part of the Eternal’s city ‘stone memory. Today, growing inequality, lack of economic growth, unemployment, war and terrorism foster populism and may threaten our democratic ideals. Is memory enough? Location: Roma, Latium, Italy (Photo and caption by Maria Holzinger / National Geographic Travel Photographer of the Year Contest )

本当に存在するの?SF作品の定番、パラレルワールドに関する10の事実

0_e10


 今目の前に広がる世界は現実なのだろうか? それはそれほど確かなことではないだろう。私たちが今生きている宇宙が唯一無二の現象であるのかどうか考えてみてほしい。ひょっとしたら第二次世界大戦でドイツが勝利し、ローマは455年にバンダル人に占領されておらず、日本が戦勝国になっている。そんな別の現実が存在するのではないだろうか?

  パラレルワールドはSF作家や映画監督の空想だと思うかもしれない。だが、この仮説の支持者には非常に有名な物理学者も名を連ねる。数学的にはその存在が示唆されているからだ。ここではパラレルワールドについてSFと絡めながら、様々な事実を見ていくことにしよう。
