I was informed by sources that the
Defense Intelligence Agency
or DIA has an entire Top Secret/Codeword file on this "Chinese
Roswell" case with autopsy results: And, the ancient dates of
the "Chinese Roswell" et case fit what's written in the
Yellow Book. In 1938, Chinese archaeologists discover strange
stone disks in a remote mountain cave.
What the Stones Reveal?
The Dropa disks tell the story of a space probe from a distant planet
that crash-landed in the Baian-Kara-Ula mountains of the Himalayas
12,000 years ago. The occupants of the spacecraft - the Dropa -
found refuge in the caves of the mountains. Despite their peaceful
intentions, the Dropa were misunderstood by members of the Ham tribe
who were occupying neighboring caves and who hunted down the aliens
and even killed some of them. A translation of one of the passages
"The Dropa came
down from the clouds in their aircraft. Our men, women, and children
hid in the caves ten times before sunrise. When at last they
understood the sign language of the Dropa, they realized that the
newcomers had peaceful intentions...."
The stones go on to say how
the Dropa were unable to repair their
disabled spacecraft and could not return to their home planet, and
so were stranded on Earth. If that's true, have their descendents
Hartwig Hausdorf writes....:
"for 35 years, a story has
circulated about an alleged UFO crash that happened some 12,000
years ago in a remote mountain area in China. When I first heard of
this, I took it to be science fiction. But new developments in this
story have made it worth another look".
It begins at the turn of the years 1937 and 1938, when an expedition
led by archeologist Chi Pu-Tei came across the pathless Bayan-Kara-Ula mountains in the modern-day Chinese
Qinghai. The group discovered some caves in which numerous
strange-looking skeletons were entombed. All of the skeletons had
abnormally big heads and small, thin, fragile bodies.
There were no epitaphs at the graves, but the explorers did find
716 stone discs with bizarre hieroglyphs on them. From a
hole in the center of each disc, a groove spiraled out to the rim.
The archeologists had no idea what kind of information was encoded
in the hieroglyphs.
Not until the early 1960s did Beijing Academy of Sciences
professor Tsum Um Nui succeed in translating a few passages of
the inscriptions on the stone discs. But upon completing his report,
the scientist ran into a problem: The Academy banned the
publication of his work. This is not surprising when one
considers the unusual conclusions that Tsum Um Nui and four assistants
drew. They were certain that the hieroglyphs on the stone discs told
of the crash of an alien spacecraft in the mountains 12,000 years
After an extended quarrel, the professor obtained permission to
publish his report. He introduced amazed readers to the story of
alien beings called the Dropa, who had crashed in the
Mountains after a long space flight. A great number of these beings
died, and the survivors could not repair their ship, said Tsum Um
Nui. Of course, the scientific establishment considered the
story to be nonsense, and Tsum Um Nui was derided as a fool.
What skeptics ignored was that in the Qinghai province, ancient
traditions told of small, skinny, ugly beings, with big, clumsy
heads and weak extremities, who came down from the sky long ago.
Locals have always been afraid of the strange-looking invaders from
Shortly after publishing his report, Tsum Um Nui
emigrated to Japan.
Embittered by the reactions of other scientists, he died shortly
after he completed a final manuscript about the stone-disc mystery.
My book "Satelliten der Goetter" (Satellites of the Gods)
was published in Japan in 1996, and I hope the book's Japanese
readers may be able to provide new information on Tsum Um Nui and
his fate. Where was he buried?. What library contains his report on
the translation of the hieroglyphs on the stone plates?
Nobody knows what became of the 716 discs. Their existence was last
documented in 1974, when Austrian engineer Ernest Wegerer
came across two of the discs in Banpo Museum in Xi'an. The
discs matched the descriptions from Tsum Um Nui's 1962
report. Wegerer could even recognize hieroglyphs in the
disc's spiral grooves, but by this time they were partly crumbled
away. Knowing the artifacts' background, Wegerer asked the former manager of the
Banpo Museum for
more details on the objects. Surprisingly, the woman could tell
stories about all the other clay artifacts there, but all she could
say of the stone discs was that they were unimportant "cult
objects." This is also how they were labeled in the museum showcase.
Nevertheless, the Austrian was allowed to hold one of the discs and
take the only known photographs of both of them. Wegerer
estimated them to weigh two pounds each and to measure a foot in
diameter. They both featured the strange hieroglyphs and a hole in
the center. Regrettably, the spiral grooves cannot be seen in the
photographs, partly because they had crumbled away and also because
Wegerer used a Polaroid camera with an integrated flash.
This was more or less the status of the research when "Satellites
of the Gods" co-author Peter Krassa and I tried to pick
up the trail of this mystery of the century. It would not be easy.
China had suffered through its Proletarian Cultural Revolution from
1966 to 1976. Many people lost their lives, and innumerable precious
objects fell victim to the unrest. During this time, many artifacts
were taken from Beijing into the provinces.
In March 1994, Prof.
Wang Zhijun, director of the Banpo
Museum, welcomed Krassa and me for a discussion of the
stone discs. At first, he seemed unwilling to give details, but soon
he revealed that the manager of the museum had been called away from
her job just a few days after Wegerer had visited the museum
in 1974. Both the woman and the discs had disappeared without a
I had the distinct feeling that Wang Zhijun was uncomfortable
during our inquiry. When asked for the artifacts' present location,
he told us:
"The stone discs you have mentioned do not exist, but
being extraneous elements in this museum for pottery ware, they have
Isn't it fascinating to witness such a U-turn in one sentence?
