Mystery Of Color Rain in Kerala

Posted: June 7, 2010 in Uncategorized

No one understood what was happening, at which time, July 25, 2001, torrential rain showered with red colored water in the Indian state of Kerala. The rain lasted until September2001.

More than 500,000 cubic meters of rainwater pouring into the earth is red. At first scientists thought that the red rain was caused by desert sand, but the scientists discovered something startling, red elements in the water are living cells, cells that did not come from the earth!

The first rain fell in Kottayam and Idukki districts in the southern region of India. Not only red rain, the first 10 days of rain were reported yellow, green and even black. After 10 days, rainfall intensity subsided until September.

The rain fell only on a limited region and usually only lasts about 20 minutes per rain. The local residents find the clothes dried in the sun turns red like blood. Local residents also reported the sound of explosions and bright lights that preceded the rain that is trusted as a meteor explosion.

Rain water samples are taken soon to be investigated by the Indian government and scientists. One of the independent scientists who examined them was Godfrey Louis and Santosh Kumara from the University of Mahatma Gandhi.

They collected more than 120 reports from local residents and collect water samples from the red rain along the 100 km region. The first time they thought that the red particles are particles in the water-borne sand of the desert Arabs.

This never happened in July 1968 where the sand from the Sahara carried by the wind to cause red rain in England. But they found that the red elements in the water is not a grain of sand, but the living cells.

The composition of these cells consisted of 50% Carbon, 45% oxygen and 5% of other elements like iron and sodium, consistent with the other component of biological cells, and cells were also dividing. The cell was between 30-10 micrometers in diameter with a thick cell wall and has a variation in membrane nanostructure.

But there is no identifiable nucleus. Each cubic meter of samples taken, there are 100 grams of red elements. So when summed, then from July to September there were 50 tons of spilled red particles to Earth.

At the University of Sheffield, UK, an expert named Milton Wainwright microbiologically confirmed that that the red elements are living cells. This was stated because Wainwright had found the DNA of the cell elements, although he has not managed to extract it.

Because of the red particles are living cells, the scientists theorized that particles that are blood red. According to them, possibly meteorite exploded in the air had been massacred a group of bats in the air. But this theory was rejected because of lack of evidence that supports such as bat wings who fell to earth.

By linking between the sound of explosions and light rain that preceded it, Louis put forward the theory that the red cells are extra-terrestrial beings.Louis concluded that the red material came from a comet entering the earth’s atmosphere and exploded over the skies of India.

A study conducted by a doctoral student of Queen’s University, Ireland is named Patrick McCafferty find the records of history that connects with colored rain meteor explosion.

McCafferty analyzed 80 reports of colored rains, 20 reports of water turned into blood, and 68 examples of similar phenomena like black rain, milk or honey rain that falls from the sky.

36 percent of those samples was connected with the activity of a meteor or comet. Such incidents occurred from ancient Rome, medieval Ireland and England and even California-19th century.

McCafferty said, “it seems there is a strong relationship between reports of rain in color with meteor activity, the red rain of Kerala match these patterns and can not be ignored.”

So, whether the red rain in Kerala are from outside the earth? Some scientists are skeptical necessarily rejected this theory. But some other scientists have not found the answer quickly glanced back to an obsolete theory proposed by the physicist Sir Fred Hoyle and Dr. Chandra Wickramasinghe, a theory known as Panspermia, a theory which states that life on earth came from outer space.

According to both scientists in outer space in the beginning there was a cloud of interstellar gas that contains bacteria. As the cloud shrinks due to gravity to form a star system, the bacteria is in it still survive in the comet.

When the comet was exposed to sunlight, heat of the sun melt the ice on comet’s surface, these bacteria escaped and was swept into the nearest planets. This theory is also based on Charles Darwin’s argument that the actual bacteria have karakteristis “outside the earth.”

Could they be right?
