Astronaut Edgar Mitchell to Explore Billy Meier UFO Case - UFO Contactee Billy Meier visited moon years before other astronauts

Playa Del Rey, CA, November 29, 2010 (Washington Bangla Radio / PRWEB Press Release) Sixth astronaut on the moon, well known for his interest in UFOs and consciousness, claimed government covering up extraterrestrial UFO information; already acknowledged Meier's scientific information is better form of proof than UFO photos; fascinated by proof of extraterrestrial's accurate scientific information about 5,100 year-old Iceman.

Discussions are under way for a first of its kind public forum featuring Dr. Edgar Mitchell, the sixth man to walk on the moon, and Michael Horn, the U.S. media representative for Swiss UFO contactee, Billy Meier.

According to Horn, "Dr. Mitchell sent me an email acknowledging that Meier's voluminous amount of published, scientifically accurate information was even better proof than the physical evidence, such as UFO photos, films, etc. Of course there were also prominent scientists who focused only on Meier's physical evidence and found it to be authentic. However, anyone who can think logically, scientifically and objectively, as Dr. Mitchell certainly does, can easily see how the best 'proof' may be right under our noses, in the documentation. Considering the huge, possibly historical implications, I think it's important to explore this matter in a broad and open public forum.


Bhopal Shatabdi Express Leads The Fastest Five Trains In India

CALCUTTA, October 28, 2010 (Washington Bangla Radio / Free-Press-Release.com) The Indian Railway is a remarkable introduction by the British East India Company. The company introduced the system for their own benefits of business expansion through commercial trading but eventually it proved to be a blessing for Indians for which even today the citizens of the country give an acknowledgement.

The first train was operational on December 22, 1851 mainly used for the hauling of construction material in Roorkee. Following this, the first passenger train was introduced between Bori Bunder-Bombay-Thana on April 16, 1853. Thereafter, many trains came into existence and the railway system continued to progress.

At present, the Indian Railway system is believed to be one of the largest and the busiest rail networks in the world. It does not have the world’s fastest train but it has a massive number running between varied stations. Among this long list of trains, there are few fast trains that are the pride of India.

Here is the list of top 5 fastest trains of India:
