300 Million-year-old piece of ancient vehicle found in Russia


Researchers in Russia have com across another artifact that they have dated back millions of years. There has been a lot of chatter regarding this discovery as national media have reported that a curious artifact has been discovered in Vladivostok, Russia. We are talking about a 300 million-year-old piece that could have belonged, in the distant past, to a complex aluminum machine. Experts who have had the opportunity to analyze the artifact have concluded that the piece resembles a gear and is not, in any case, the result of natural forces.

Where the 300 million-year-old gear gets interesting (If the age itself isn’t incredible) is in its chemical composition.

According to tests, the object is composed of extremely pure aluminum ranging from 96 to 98 percent of aluminum and has an addition of 2% to 4% of magnesium.

This composition is even more surprising according to scholars, as highly pure aluminum is something very hard to find, most alloys contain manganese, silicon, copper, titanium, or Zirconium Beryllium but in a percentage of about 10%.

This actually means that the object we are discussing has a chemical composition that is not common in our time and even less in the past and is something incredibly hard to be found by itself in nature.

Scientists state that pure aluminum is increasingly prone to oxidation which adds to the creation of a special layer that actually protects it from corrosion, this makes it possible to endure extremely high pressures and heat and other severe natural conditions making it a unique item.


The discovery points toward the resemblance this 300 million-year-old items with similarly shaped toothed metal bars, artificially created today, but it also looks similar to parts that are often used in microscopes, various technical and electronic devices, according to writer Natalia Ostrowski.

According to the website “Another question that interests Russian scientists is whether the aluminum alloy is of Earthly origin. It is known from the study of meteorites that there exist extra-terrestrial aluminum-26 which subsequently breaks down to magnesium-26. The presence of 2 percent of magnesium in the alloy might well point to the alien origin of the aluminum detail. Nonetheless, further testing is needed to confirm this hypothesis”.

It was also found that the object contains from 28% to 75% of carbon; This helped to reaffirm the age of the object placing it 300 million years ago. Does the finding of this artifact have something to do with the numerous artifacts found elsewhere on the planet?

And the greater question ufologists are asking is if this “device”  provide any kind of evidence of that humanity is far older than we have been thought of our history books? Is there a possibility that man existed in times when we thought it wasn’t possible?

These are just some of the several questions asked by ancient alien theorists and ufologists who have claimed for years that the history books and science have got a major part of our past wrong.

Scientists state that it was difficult to believe that such an artifact could take the regular shape of a tooth-wheel composed out of six identical ‘teeth’ naturally, making the natural formation theory improbable.

It is not that improbable to believe that the Earth was inhabited millions of years before we came into existence. There is a possibility that advanced civilizations populated the earth in a very remote past, as there are many pieces of evidence pointing towards this assumption. But the most important question is who inhabited the earth at that time? Advanced human beings? Extraterrestrials races? Time travelers?

Today, finding a strange artifact embedded in coal is a relatively common occurrence.

The first of such discoveries was made way back, in 1851, when workers in one of the mines in Massachusetts extracted a zinc-silver alloy embedded in a kind of vase inside a block of undeveloped coal, dating from the Cambrian era, about 500 million years ago. Sixty-one years later, American scientists in Oklahoma discovered an iron pot that was pressed into a lump of coal which was dated back 312 million years ago.

Later, in 1974, part of an aluminum structure of unknown origin was found in a sandstone quarry in Romania. So as we can see, there have been numerous artifacts discovered in the distant past that are not being talked about in mainstream media.

People are becoming less interested in our past and amazing discoveries that have no place next to articles that talk about fashion, technology, and cars. This 300 million-year-old artifact is something that is worth looking into, and there are numerous possibilities what the object might be, who or what created it.

Further tests need to be performed to understand and explain the origin of the 300 million-year-old artifact.

  • I’m still trying to figure out why there are groups hell bend on trying to destroy our history. I know we are not the first advance civilization and we won’t be the last.

    • The idea that we are the only intelligent life forms out there is driven simply put, ignorance.

      • pcf11x

        While there may be other intelligent forms of life the odds of any of them visiting this planet are still extremely remote.

        • Jahan917

          Why is it extremely remote? The earth has been here millions of years, life other civilizations may be millions of years more advanced than us, using means of transportation and communication.

          • pcf11x

            This planet has been here for billions of years. But this planet is still less prominent than a proverbial needle in a haystack in the cosmic scheme of things.

          • Cameron

            We wouldn’t be very advanced in comparison to a species with the technology to visit, yet we have already found hundreds of planets that have a high chance to support life (as we know it) – the odds are small I admit, but the Universe is very old, god only knows what happened before us.

          • pcf11x

            Perhaps. Then again technological societies might just be evolutionary dead ends too? That may explain the Fermi Paradox. When species achieve a certain level of technology they might just go extinct because of it too.

            Now as far as peering into the past goes, we do that every time we look up at the stars in the sky. Besides our Sun, the closest star to us is 4 light years away. So we see it as it was 4 years ago. Other stars are even further away.

            If we look far enough away we can see almost back to the beginning of the Universe. Right now we can see about 95% of the way back to the beginning.

            One thing to think about is the Universe has changed, just like this planet has changed, over time. In the early life of the Universe it might not have been as hospitable for life as it is now too. The Universe was certainly more volatile when it was younger.

            If your star blows up you’re pretty much having a bad day then.

          • Jahan917

            That’s all human based reasoning and logic, why are you presenting your viewpoints as if it’s the center of the Universe, you may as well go back to thinking evertrying revolves around the Earth.

          • pcf11x

            Considering the size of the Universe wherever you happen to be is the center of it.

          • Jahan917

            Why is that so? Because you’re told this from a human point of view?

          • pcf11x

            Because I keep up with scientific discoveries. If you want to call that a human point of view feel free.

          • Jahan917

            These aren’t discoveries, they are things humans have been made aware of through their small perspective, they didn’t just suddenly pop up into being, you have to wonder about the intelligence of a society when such a thing is considered a scientific discovery…

    • Jahan917

      How is revealing that there’s proof of human or otherwise life on Earth from million of years ago destroying history? It’s already a mess with the bias viewpoints, exclusion and general manipulation to appeal to a majority.

    • Anna

      You acknowledge that we are not the first advanced civilization, yet you seem to think that revealing this is destroying our history. So what you’re basically saying is that our history is a lie, but you’re fine with that.

    • Mike Dunn

      this comment confused me.

    • GG

      Because of religious organisations and banks,other rich organisations and people,
      nut jobs that think they will live forever and think they rule the world!


    • Mia Person

      Because they don`t hide the evidence that is found elsewhere.

  • Keith

    Seems plausible to me.

  • How many times have we lost a nut.screw or bold whilst doing running repairs in a lay-by?…..there are a few more nuts and bolts to loose on a spaceship…..

  • Sid Brown.

    It is agreed homo sapiens has been around 200000 or so years, do we honestly think that suddenly 5000 years ago he sat up & said hey lets build a city! I dont think so!

  • Exasperated

    I’m not an engineer, but would you use aluminium for a gear? Surely there are many, many more appropriate metals & alloys that you would consider first? Small point in the grand scheme of things, but I’m curious.
