    What Did the Ancients See? Unidentified Flying Objects that Made an Impact on Early History
    ...
    The number of reported UFO sightings has hit an all time high in 2017. In the 112(*) years since the National UFO Reporting Center began keeping track, there have been 104,947 reported events (Monfort, 2017). The majority of sightings occur in the United States, though Canada, Australia, and the Nordic countries also have significant numbers of unidentified flying object sightings. Most of these incidents can be explained – airplanes, satellites, comets, fireworks (there is a spike in reported sightings in the US each year around the Fourth of July) – and many people write off UFO-spotters as fanatics.

    Yet, the phenomenon of unidentified flying objects stretches further back in history than the 1950s ‘flying saucer’ reports. In fact, the oldest recorded sighting of an unidentified flying object took place in 1440 BC. The incident was documented by the royal scribe of an Egyptian Pharaoh. Before the modern-era, UFOs were also recorded by ancient Greeks, Romans, Indians, Chinese, Japanese, Mexicans, and more. These sightings cannot be as readily explained as airplanes or fireworks.

    With nova/supernova a main premise here, this article is of interest and related;
    Ancient supernova is oldest and most distant found
    https://www.newscientist.com/article...distant-found/

    The photo suggests that these type explosions are not uniformly spherical and symmetrical;

    A massive star that exploded when the universe was just 3 billion years old has been found. It is classified as a type IIn supernova, which is caused by a star that belches out large quantities of gas before its final explosion. The fitful Milky Way star Eta Carinae (above) jettisoned the twin Homunculus clouds in 1843 and is expected to meet its end as a type IIn supernova(Image: Jon Morse/University of Colorado/NASA)

    Oldest Human DNA from Africa Reveals Clues About a Mysterious Ancient Culture
    ...
    Burials from a cave in Morocco have yielded the oldest human DNA evidence yet from Africa, offering new insight into Stone Age migrations.

    The DNA samples come from one of the most ancient cemeteries in the world, the Grotte des Pigeons, near the village of Taforalt in northeast Morocco.

    Beginning around 15,000 years ago, a culture of hunter-gatherers buried their dead with animal horns and other adornments inside this cave. Though burials were found as recently as 2006, archaeologists have been excavating the cave since the 1940s. [Image Gallery: Our Closest Human Ancestor]
    ...
    But the new DNA evidence tells a different story about the origins of the Iberomaurusians. During recent excavations led by the University of Oxford at the Grotte des Pigeons, archaeologists saved the inner-ear petrous bones, a good source for ancient DNA. Researchers at the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Human History, in Jena, Germany, extracted ancient mitochondrial DNA, which is passed on only from mothers to their children, from seven individuals, as well as nuclear DNA, which is inherited from both parents, from five of the skeletons.

    "Due to challenging conditions for DNA preservation, relatively few ancient genomes have been recovered from Africa, and none of them so far predate the introduction of agriculture in North Africa," Marieke van de Loosdrecht, an archaeogeneticist at the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Human History, said in a statement.

    Contrary to the theory that Europeans from Sicily or the Iberian Peninsula were buried at Grotte des Pigeons, the analysis revealed no genetic link to southern Europe. Instead, the results, which were reported March 15 in the journal Science, showed that about two-thirds of the Iberomaurusian DNA matched closely with that of ancient Natufians, a later culture that existed in the Middle East, which suggests the Grotte des Pigeons people and the Natufians shared common ancestors from North Africa or the Middle East.

    Actually, I think we got much of that once we were created with half our nucleic DNA coming from the Anunnaki. Part of the number eleven below, over 4,000 genetic disorders.

    12 ways in which humans are NOT Primates
    1) BONES - much thinner and lighter
    2) MUSCLES - 5 to 10 times weaker
    3) SKIN - not well adapted to direct sunlight
    4) ADIPOSE TISSUE - 10 times as much
    5) BODY HAIR - Missing, pattern reversed
    6) HEAD HAIR AND NAILS - Must be trimmed
    7) SKULLS & BRAINS - Not in same ball park
    8) LOCOMOTION - Most obvious difference
    9) SPEECH - Throats completely redesigned
    10) SEX - No sign of typical oestrus cycles
    11) GENETIC DISORDERS - Over 4,000 !!!
    12) CHROMOSOMES - Reduced from 48 to 46

    Numbers 3,4,5,6,&8 above could be "Aquatic Ape" traits that were part of the Anunnaki evolutionary past, passed onto us in the 'splice'.

    Human Eggs Grown In The Lab In World First
    ....
    Scientists have created mature human eggs in the lab for the first time.
    The breakthrough could eventually help women preserve their fertility after cancer treatment, or help those with naturally occurring infertility.

    To create the eggs, a team led by Marie McLaughlin at the University of Edinburgh first took ovarian biopsies from women undergoing elective cesareans. This tissue was then dissected into thin strips, each containing many follicles.

    Women are born with millions of follicles, but the number decreases to about 400,000 by puberty. Each month after puberty, several follicles begin to develop with one eventually releasing a mature egg capable of being fertilized.

    The follicles in the experiment were cultured in a dish for eight days. At the end of this period, follicles that had developed correctly were dissected from the strips and put in another culture where they were left to grow in the presence of growth factors. Eight days later, early stage eggs were retrieved from the follicles and grown in the presence of further growth factors and a hormone called FSH. This process led to the development of several mature eggs.

    New DNA Test Results on Peru’s Elongated Skulls
    ...
    “The DNA results actually were incredibly complicated… It’s gonna take me some time to actually figure out what the results mean. What it does show for sure is that the Paracas elongated skull people were not 100% Native American. They were a mix or even you could say, in some ways, a hybrid of different people.”
    ...
    So, Forester believes the long skulls are a genetic abnormality, not the result of binding, and those with them were regarded as leaders and superiors. The key word is “believes,” not proves. This certainly reinforces the idea that the genetic makeup of Native South Americans is truly a varied mix. It also continues to disappoint those who want to believe the elongated skull beings are aliens. However, it doesn’t prove how the Paracas could be a separate sub-species while all other elongated skull cultures are not.

    The first Britons were black, Natural History Museum DNA study reveals
    ...
    The earliest Britons were black-skinned, with dark curly hair and possibly blue eyes, new analysis of a 10,000-year-old Somerset skeleton has revealed.

    Scientists at the Natural History Museum have used pioneering genetic sequencing and facial reconstruction techniques to prove that the first hunter-gatherers successfully to inhabit Britain were far darker in complexion than previously thought.

    The groundbreaking discovery was made in a “stroke of luck” after archeologists found scraps of DNA in the ear of the Mesolithic “Cheddar Man”, the oldest complete skeleton ever found in the UK and one of the museum’s most treasured specimens.

    BRAIN BUG Ancient virus could be responsible for human ability to think
    New studies suggest that a gene believed to be responsible for human thought could have been created thanks to an ancient viral infection
    ...
    Two papers published in the Cell journal discuss the origins of the Arc gene, which packages up genetic information and sends it around nerve cells in little virus-style capsules.

    These packages of information are believed to be critical to how our nerves communicate, and could be responsible for our thoughts.

    Elissa D. Pastuzyn, who authored one of the studies, said: "Evolutionary analysis indicates that Arc is derived from a vertebrate lineage of Ty3/gypsy retrotransposons, which are also ancestors to retroviruses."

    It's believed that between 40 per cent and 80 per cent of the human genome was developed thanks to ancient viruses.

    EXCERPTS:
    ... On average, a typical human protein-coding gene differs from its chimpanzee ortholog by only two amino acid substitutions; nearly one third of human genes have exactly the same protein translation as their chimpanzee orthologs. A major difference between the two genomes is human chromosome 2, which is equivalent to a fusion product of chimpanzee chromosomes 12 and 13.[79] (later renamed to chromosomes 2A and 2B, respectively). Humans have undergone an extraordinary loss of olfactory receptor genes during our recent evolution, which explains our relatively crude sense of smell compared to most other mammals. Evolutionary evidence suggests that the emergence of color vision in humans and several other primate species has diminished the need for the sense of smell.[80]
    In September 2016, scientists reported that, based on human DNA genetic studies, all non-Africans in the world today can be traced to a single population that exited Africa between 50,000 and 80,000 years ago.[81]
    ...
    The human mitochondrial DNA is of tremendous interest to geneticists, since it undoubtedly plays a role in mitochondrial disease. It also sheds light on human evolution; for example, analysis of variation in the human mitochondrial genome has led to the postulation of a recent common ancestor for all humans on the maternal line of descent (see Mitochondrial Eve).
    Due to the lack of a system for checking for copying errors, mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) has a more rapid rate of variation than nuclear DNA. This 20-fold higher mutation rate allows mtDNA to be used for more accurate tracing of maternal ancestry. Studies of mtDNA in populations have allowed ancient migration paths to be traced, such as the migration of Native Americans from Siberia or Polynesians from southeastern Asia. It has also been used to show that there is no trace of Neanderthal DNA in the European gene mixture inherited through purely maternal lineage.[82] Due to the restrictive all or none manner of mtDNA inheritance, this result (no trace of Neanderthal mtDNA) would be likely unless there were a large percentage of Neanderthal ancestry, or there was strong positive selection for that mtDNA (for example, going back 5 generations, only 1 of your 32 ancestors contributed to your mtDNA, so if one of these 32 was pure Neanderthal you would expect that ~3% of your autosomal DNA would be of Neanderthal origin, yet you would have a ~97% chance to have no trace of Neanderthal mtDNA).
