Most Shocking Facts On Denver International Airport

Published

on

Airport

Ever since DIA opened to the public on February 28 of 1995 the airport has been in the limelight. It is a hub of shocking rumors and conspiracy theories. From the demonic horse greeting visitors, the apocalyptic murals the airport has many other odd characters. The massive new airport didn’t just take up lots of time and money—it also takes up a lot of space.  two decades later, it’s still the largest airport in the United States by area (53 square miles) with the longest public use runway available in the country.

That said let’s jump right into the shocking facts that are hard to believe-

1. The Airport Runways Look Like Swastika

DIA does have something to be suspicious about. A shape that many people have noticed looks curiously like a swastika, at least from the air. Taken on its own, such a shape could be brushed off as being just a really terrible piece of planning, but combined with everything else, it all looks very odd indeed.  If you didn’t know, the Nazis happen to use the swastika symbol. It was the official symbol of the party.

2. The Markings On Floor

Much theorizing has occurred over the floor designs and phrases embedded in the marble floor throughout DIA’s main terminal known as the Great Hall. The airport bears a series of “strange” markings on its floors that some people believe symbolize a new strain of hepatitis that could be used in biological warfare. In reality, most of the symbols are taken from Navajo language or are pulled from the periodic table of elements.

3. Secret Societies

Elite readers

It is a conspiracy theory that he Freemasons, a centuries-old secret society, has controlled the airport ever since it opened. With ties to the New World Order, a group of global elites who wield power over international affairs. A dedication plaque at the airport’s south entrance dated March 19, 1994, contains a time capsule and bears the symbol of the Freemasons, as well as a reference to the New World Airport Commission. Strange markings have also been noted around the airport, supposedly indicating secret or alien languages.

4. Artistic clues to the apocalypse

Like most DIA conspiracy theories, this one roughly parallels the rise of the internet at the time of the airport’s opening and has been given fuel over the years by radio hosts like George Noory.  The airport’s 40-piece public art collection, most notably its colorful, 28-foot-wide murals by artist Leo Tanguma, its “Notre Denver” gargoyle sculptures and the Mustang sculpture ( big blue horse) near are clues to influence at the airport, alternately credited as Illuminati, Freemasons, New World Order or Nazis.

 

5. Time Capsule At Airport

There is a time capsule scribed with a Freemason symbol and the words New World Airport Commission at Denver International Airport on October 20, 2016. The time capsule, which will be opened in 2094, contains nothing more than a few items of Denver historical significance. And as for that secret language? It’s Navajo. Most of us won’t be able to know what is actually inside. but it sounds interesting.

 

6. The Horse Statue At The Entrance Of Airport

Conspiracy theories aside, it’s hard to deny the weirdness of DIA’s unofficial mascot, a massive horse statue called Blue Mustang. It has already killed at least one man. At 32 feet tall and 9000 pounds, it’s made out of fibreglass, Blue Mustang is huge and imposing, and its glowing red eyes don’t help matters. This thing is giant and really scary and it killed the man who made it. Really! Artist Luis Jimenez died in 2006 when a piece of the sculpture’s head broke off and severed an artery in his leg. 

 

7. The Tunnels and the Underground Bunker

The airport is home to a number of tunnels. That sounds normal enough, but there is definitely something weird about. But where do the tunnels go? Perhaps to some kind of underground bunker? Most of the people who believe in the various conspiracy theories regarding DIA seem to think that the airport is actually the headquarters for something far nastier than just an airport like the New World Order after a zombie apocalypse.

Is It Safe To Visit Nuclear Disaster Sites?

Nuclear Disaster Sites

Theguardian.com

“Mankind invented the atomic bomb, but no mouse would ever construct a mousetrap.” 

-Albert Einstein

There was a time when countries and nation-states were in the rat race to acquire the monopoly over nuclear weapons. That was the time when the nuclear proliferation of these weapons was growing at an increasing rate. The weapon states and non-weapon states were at loggerheads with each other. Sooner and later, every country embarked on their individual capacity to build nuclear reactors and now if we look back, no good was achieved. The hunger games to redistribute the balance of power has led to the loss of lives and abandonment of places where once life perpetrated in the underbelly of once-safe nuclear disaster sites. Nuclear disasters occurred and left a legacy no one wanted. We earned but at what cost? Now that we are tackling with an invisible enemy ourselves, here’s a look at what these nuclear disaster sites look like today and whether it is safe to pay a visitation or not.

 

CHERNOBYL, 26 April 1986

More than 33 years ago, Chernobyl became the world’s worst nuclear disaster site. The plant crew intentionally switched off the safety systems to test the turbine.

Chernobyl has been opened to tourists and public since 2011 when the government authorities deemed it safe to visit. Given that you follow the orders of the tourist guide, you can prevent the radioactive from perpetrating your body.

The main danger is not radiation anymore, but the unsafe structures which have been deserted for 30 years, and lots of metal has been stripped away. So go around in groups, and obey the guide’s instructions.

 

FUKUSHIMA, 11 March 2011

The Dai-ichi nuclear power plant spewed radiation across dozens of towns, triggering a 10 mile evacuation zone. Following a major earthquake, a 15-metre tsunami disabled the power supply and cooling of three Fukushima Daiichi reactors, causing a nuclear accident on 11 March 2011. All three cores largely melted in the first three days.

9 years after the nuclear accident, Fukushima is expectantly opening up for Tokyo Olympic games 2020. The Japan government declares that Fukushima is under control.

 

TRINITY SITE, NEW MEXICO, 16 July 1945

One week after the establishment of White Sands Missile Range (WSMR), the world’s first atomic bomb was detonated in the north-central portion of the missile range, approximately 60 miles north of White Sands National Monument.

This site is now open to the public twice a year. It is located on the White Sands Missile Range which is an active military installation in New Mexico. The atmosphere is quite a circus with people bringing screaming kids, strollers, beer coolers, bicycles, dogs, and everything else you could think of.
