Two scientists affiliated to the Fundación Instituto Biofísico de Investigaciones (FICI) headquartered in La Matanza and directed by Pedro Romaniuk, one of the most well-known analysts of the UFO phenomenon and an author of 20 books on the subject, claimed having picked up radioactive signatures, microwaves, levels of electricity and oscillations originating from the depths of the earth.
Omar Hesse and Jorge Millstein surveyed the mountains surrounding Cachi last week -- 157 km from the capital and 2,280 meters above sea level. After applying a Russian tester in the vicinity of the Nevado de Cachi, they concluded that the signals are not natural in origin, and rather originate by machinery operated by intelligent beings (sic).
"The oscillations clearly indicate that kilometers beneath the surface there is activity: alternating electrical waves, which means a power source," said Hesse. "This could mean engines," he added.
The area was not chosen at random: it was based on 4 film recordings made by local mountaineer Antonio Zuleta between June 2000 and November 2002. All of them show analogous images--strange, swiftly moving lights which appear to "plunge" into the ground at the same point. The researchers calculated the site's location and accompanied by Zuleta himself, reported to the area some 8 km to the southwest.
"We will have to return with equipment of higher sensitivity and equipped with depth rods (sic) to achieve greater precision in the data," observed Millstein. However, despite the magnitude of their discovery, members of the FICI were not impressed. "It's just that this is one of the hottest areas of the planet regarding extraterrestrial activity. It's a band that stretches from La Poma to Cayafate and which has roused interest all over the world, as we have attested through our worldwide investigation network, where consultations regarding the area are recurrently made." The two researchers estimate that Zuleta's recordings and the signals recorded from the depths of the earth correspond to a technology not native to our world.
"To those of us in this field, the possibility that vessels may penetrate the earth is nothing new in the Andes, as depicted by numerous stone records from Ecuador to Mendoza," they concluded.
