Secrets of “Alien Sites” in Qaidam Basin

  ”Alien Architecture” discovered that
  Bai Yu, the author of “Into Qaidam” by Tuosu Lake , is the honorary chairman of Qinghai Writers Association and has worked in geology. In June 1996, he stepped into the Tosu Lake on the northeastern edge of the Qaidam Basin, and was shocked by the sight in front of him: the open lake was without any creatures, and the surrounding sharp cone-shaped hills seemed to be smelted by the fire, and there was no trace of life. breath.
  Just at the foot of Bayinova Mountain to the east of Tuosu Lake, Bai Yu discovered a strange cave. The opening of the cave is triangular, like a manual excavation, all sandstone, almost no impurities can be seen. In the depths of the cave, an iron tube pierced out of the rock wall, which fits seamlessly with the rock, without head and tail, surprised him inexplicably!
  On the beach between Bayinova Mountain and Tuosu Lake, Bai Yu found more mysterious pipes. The shapes of these tubes are strange and supernatural. Bai Yu took a sample from the tube and sent it to the Xitieshan smelter directly under the Ministry of Metallurgy for testing. In addition to the common metal elements, there are 8% of the elements that cannot be detected in the sample.
  Unidentified elements made Bai Yu suddenly realize, and a bold idea began to influence him: these sudden tubular objects on the deserted Gobi can only have two origins, either from earthlings or aliens. The element that cannot be ascertained may be the material composition of the universe brought by aliens.
  After investigation, Bai Yu learned that the earliest history of human activities in Qaidam is about 30,000 years old. The cultural relics unearthed in the local area are mostly animal bones, stoneware, pottery and bronze, etc. Ironware has never been found. After the founding of the People’s Republic of China, Qaidam was developed several times, but it was never constructed in the area of ​​Tuosu Lake. Therefore, Bai Yu concluded that these pipes were not left by ancient ancestors, nor could they be materials of modern engineering. They were most likely a group of pipes constructed by aliens.
  In order to confirm his inference, Bai Yu rushed to the observation station set up at Delingha by the Nanjing Purple Mountain Observatory tens of kilometers away from Tuosu Lake. In Asia, this is an excellent astronomical observation point. Over the past few years, nearly 100 galaxies have been discovered here. The altitude is high, the air is thin, the transparency is excellent, and the millimeter wave is very easy to accept… These have convinced Bai Yu that the messengers of the universe may have visited the Qaidam Basin, and the eye-catching Tosu Lake may be the coordinates of the aliens’ navigation.
  Behind the Bayinova Mountain, an unusually flat open area appeared on the undulating Gobi Desert, such as a carefully consolidated airport. In Bai Yu’s eyes, this is undoubtedly the landing point of the alien aircraft.
  Experts effort to interpret “the alien ruins” mystery
  lake is discovered after the alien ruins was disclosed media, attracted the attention of domestic geology.
  In May 2001, a temporary scientific expedition team led by Professor Zheng Jiandong from the Institute of Geology of China Earthquake Administration, including researchers from China University of Geosciences, Beijing Institute of Nuclear Industry and Beijing Geological Research Institute, went to Tosu Lake to try to solve the mystery The mystery of the origin of the tube.
  The expedition team first locked the research area on the analysis and comparison of the tube of Bayinova Mountain with the meteorite and the moon. After inspection, they found that the two were completely different. It can be concluded that the tube cannot be brought by aliens. The test finally determined that the sample was a cement of carbon and pyrite, which was not artificial. Compared with Bai Yu’s laboratory results, 8% of the unknown elements were also identified before, which turned out to be common metal elements such as potassium, aluminum, and sodium.
  Once the mysterious tube of the alien cave entered the expert’s laboratory, his identity was so ordinary. The common name “pyrite” eventually led to the consensus among experts: the research direction of Tuosu Lake Tubular should be changed from “in the sky” to “into the earth”. Because they are neither from earth people, nor from aliens. They are just a geological mystery that has just been discovered but has gone through a long time journey.
  Experts have different opinions mystery after another
  expedition found that the tube is only distributed in hard sandstone inside, which makes the initial environmental expedition to iron tube formed with understanding. According to the theoretical analysis of lithofacies in geology, these harder sandstone layers are formed by flood impact. In geology, this lithofacies is called flood facies. Zhou De’an, Zheng Jiandong and others believe that these iron elements were washed by flood torrents to the area of ​​Tuosu Lake millions of years ago, and then deposited in sandstone.
  Regarding why these tubes are only distributed in the harder sandstone, Zheng Jiandong believes that this deposit belongs to a terrestrial sedimentary environment. When the flood is inundated, the water flow is very turbulent, carries more materials, and brings more iron. Most of the tubulars are quickly buried with iron elements and sediments, and then formed through chemical reactions.
  Regarding the source of iron elements and the reasons for the formation of pyrite, the experts on the expedition team agreed on the same view. However, Zhou De’an and others put forward a completely different view on the sedimentary theory that this can form a tube. The reason is that it is sedimentary. It is impossible to concentrate the iron elements so abundantly, and it is even impossible to form a geometric tube.
  The dispute is a dispute. Experts seek common ground while reserving differences and agree that the formation of the tube is inseparable from the paleogeological and paleo-climatic conditions of the Qaidam Basin millions of years ago. To uncover the mystery of this strange phenomenon, we must go back to Qaidam, millions of years ago or even more distant. Experts set their sights on the Fossil Mountain, which is less than 40 kilometers northwest of Lake Tuosu, where countless sea shrimps are completely embedded in the rocks of the Fossil Mountain. Today it seems to be lifelike. It shows that Qaidam was still a vast ocean 40 million years ago. Later orogenic movements produced the world’s highest plateau, the Tibetan Plateau and the Himalayas, the roof of the world. The continuous improvement of the Tibetan Plateau and the Himalayas has led to changes in the surrounding environment and climate. Experts believe that this change is actually the external cause of the formation of the mysterious tube in Lake Tosu.
  Millions of years ago, due to the inclination of the Qaidam Basin and the climate conditions at that time, the ancient Tuosu Lake was formed, with an area much larger than today’s Tuosu Lake. Bayinova Mountain was originally a flat piece of land at the bottom of the ancient Tuosu Lake, but later due to geological compression, it was lifted out of the lake like a bent bow, and the uplifted mountain had a crack. Through investigation, experts discovered that Bayinova Mountain’s “alien cave” is just under the fissure of this mountain. Obviously, it is an “alien cave” formed by the crevice being washed by water. Regarding the tubular objects found in the “Alien Cave”, Zheng Jiandong believes that during the process of crustal movement, lava rushes under the stratum and sprays out when it encounters a fissure, so that the magma hidden in the fissure formed a mysterious tube later. Things.
  However, Zhou De’an and Gao Junping raised negative opinions on Zheng Jiandong’s view. They believe that after sampling and analysis, no strong evidence of the formation of magma was found in the tube, and the rocks around the tube were not corroded by high temperature. Finally, a turning point in accurately solving the mystery appeared: Gao Junping discovered through fieldwork that there are residues of plants after carbonization in the iron tube. Based on this, Zhou Dean and Gao Junping believed that the tube was a plant fossil formed by a chemical reaction after the plant was buried. This is a very important discovery.
  Gao Junping removed two samples from the inner and outer walls of the “Alien Cave” tube, and sent them to the Analysis and Testing Center of Lanzhou University for testing. Through a highly accurate plasma emission spectrum test, he found out the composition of the tube. There are dozens of common metal elements and trace elements, which are consistent with the test results of Zheng Jiandong and others in Beijing. The organic content is similar, but the gradual law of potassium and iron content in the sample is conducive to the view that the tube is formed by plant fossils .
  From the inner wall of the tube to the outer wall, the iron content increases, the potassium content decreases, and the organic content is almost the same. Through observation, experts have found no evidence of plant structures such as tree trunks and bark under the microscope, but macroscopically they have found tree-like concentric circular structures, which resemble tree rings, and some tubes are viewed from the outside. , Showing a tree structure.
  Mystery stripped of layers of tubular grew out of the real capacity
  if these trees is the tube once, then today is the Qaidam desert, many old trees is from?
  Nuomuhong Township, less than 300 kilometers away from Tuosu Lake, has a peculiar landscape: on the Gobi Desert, a dike made of shells and sand that stretches for several kilometers and is more than 5 meters high is called a shell by the locals. Beam. These shells tell people today about the ancient geology and climate of Qaidam.
  Several million years ago, Qaidam was in a subtropical environment. At that time, the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau was still uplifting but surrounded by high mountains. The warm and humid air currents from the Indian Peninsula entered the basin, making Qaidam abundant in rainfall, lush vegetation, and continuous flooding and heavy rains. . The rapids carried mud and sand to cover the trees, and the big trees have since entered a long process of evolution. Later, the Himalayas rose sharply, and the rain brought by the Indian Ocean monsoon was blocked on the southern slopes of the Himalayas. The climate in the Qaidam Basin became dry and colder, and the water surface was shrinking year by year, while the Nuomuhong area was the low-lying part of the basin. Later, the lake dried up, and the only place for these shells to survive became their death place.
  The uplift of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau caused desertification and drought in the Qaidam Basin. After that, the strata in the Tuosu Lake area began to undergo violent sedimentation, causing big trees to be buried hundreds of meters or even thousands of meters deep under the ground surface by soil and gravel. This process takes hundreds of thousands of years. After the trees under the ground are dehydrated, free oxygen is gradually consumed, and the environment changes from oxidation to reduction. This is a critical period for the formation of iron tubes. After the transformation and reduction, the tube inside is originally a woody thing, which is relatively loose compared with the surrounding sediments. The surrounding iron and trivalent iron become divalent iron and gradually flow into the loose and porous wood structure.
  According to geological theory, the temperature will increase by 33℃ for every 1000 meters of depth under the stratum. Under such temperature and chemical conditions, the trees have undergone an interesting change: the loose xylem gradually rots, and the iron element undergoes a chemical reaction. Adsorbed to the non-perishable phloem of the tree, this is the original shape of the iron tube.
  The mystery of the alien site of Qaidam Tosu Lake has experienced ups and downs in the sky, the world, and the underground, and finally evolved from an alien planet that is difficult for humans to reach into the long history of Qaidam.
