Years after his hanging, Saddam Hussein mystery lives on

AL-AWJAH, IRAQ: In his native village of Al-Awjah, the mausoleum of Iraq’s executed dictator Saddam Hussein has been reduced to broken concrete and tangled barbed wire, showing no trace of his remains. The man who ruled Iraq with an iron fist for a quarter of a century was hanged at dawn on December 30, 2006, symbolizing the humiliation of Saddam’s followers.

Mystery space object may be first confirmed interstellar visitor

LOS ANGELES: A small asteroid or comet that has been spotted racing through our solar system may have come from elsewhere in the galaxy, US space scientists say, possibly marking the first such interstellar visitor observed from Earth. The mystery object, so far known only as A/2017 U1, was discovered earlier this month by a researcher using a sophisticated telescope system at the University of Hawaii that continually scans the universe for such phenomenon. “We have been waiting for this day for decades,” said Paul…

Google Earth discovers mystery ancient stone structures in Saudi desert

SYDNEY: Nearly 400 mysterious ancient stone structures have been identified in the Saudi Arabian desert by an Australian researcher using Google Earth. David Kennedy, whose team has spent decades recording thousands of archaeological sites in the Middle East, said the man-made edifices, known as "gates", are thought to have been constructed between 2,000 to 9,000 years ago. But their purpose and function are a mystery. "You can't see them in any intelligible way at the ground level but once you get up a few hundred…

Mystery Qatari sheikh pushed into Gulf crisis spotlight

DUBAI: Two months into a bitter Gulf crisis, Saudi Arabia's use of a previously unknown Qatari royal family member has opened a new -- and bizarre -- front in the conflict. On August 17, it was announced that Saudi Arabia's King Salman had ordered the reopening of the Qatar border to allow pilgrims from the emirate to join the annual hajj pilgrimage to Mecca.

Study finds our Sun is like other stars, resolving mystery

WASHINGTON: Our Sun is much like other stars, and not an anomaly because of its magnetic poles that flip every 11 years, scientists say. The report in the journal Science aims to lay to rest the controversy over whether our solar system's star is cyclic, like other nearby, solar-type stars. "We have shed light on a fundamental mechanism which determines the length of these cycles, which helps us understand the cycle itself over the long-term," lead author Antoine Strugarek, a researcher at the University of Montreal,…

WATCH: UFO hunters spot six giant towers on moon

A group of six gigantic 'towers' have been discovered on the moon by conspiracy theorists who believe they could have been built by aliens. The footage taken from Google Moon is collected by NASA satellites orbiting the moon and taking images of the lunar surface. The images appears to show several rocks standing high above ground level, while the data alongside shows some towers as high as five kilometers. Tyler Glockner, founder of alien hunting website Secure Team 10 , said that he believes the formations are not…
