We start this episode off with a few interesting news items that lead to another short discussion about the Elastic Universe Hypothesis and how it might be tested via an interesting anomaly that happens only beneath a full solar eclipse. And also how archaeologists are dumb because for like a hundred years they've been trying to study ancient astronomical observatories during the daytime.
We then move on to the subject of the Black Knight Satellite at the request of a listener(thanks J), which means we get into Long Delay Echoes, ancient space probes, Phillip K. Dick and V.A.L.I.S.
After that, we talk about a strange correlation between gigantic pyramids in Mexico, China, and Indonesia, then finish up with a brief discussion of a very mysterious place in China known as the Longyou Grottoes.

|Gravitic Lensing (theoretically) caused by the gravity of a galaxy cluster in the foreground, warping the light of galaxies behind it into circular arcs(btw the very bright object on the upper right is a star in our own galaxy)|
|Graph of LDEs|
|Epsilon Bootes constellation|
|Some believe this photo taken from the space shuttle captured the elusive Black Knight|
|NASA map of PHAs(Potentially Hazardous Asteroids)|
This map does not include comets. We're all gonna die.
|It's pretty big.....I guess|
|Why was this place encased in Mica??|
|Volcanic mountain near Teotihuacan|
|Pyramids in China|
|They refer to them as "mausoleums"|
|They're totally not pyramids. See the trees? Hills. Just hills.|
|Pyramid of the first Chinese emperor. The Terracotta warriors are nearby.|
|The top of Gunung Padang in Indonesia|
|The top level was made using basalt columns that form naturally when lava hits seawater|
|The top level is about 2500 years old. The lowest levels are 30,000 years old.|
|The Terracotta Warriors|
|This is just a few of them....there are over 6,000 in total, plus horses|
|That's a lotta clay mmkay|
|Note each has very unique individual features|
|One of the Longyou Grottoes. The light is coming through an opening that was the original pool on the surface|
|Who did this? Where did all the rock go? Where are the fish?|
|That would seem like a "bottomless" pool|
|Note the extremely uniform marks on the walls|
|Each grotto is many levels deep|
|The rooms are cavernous and huge|
|A close-up of the marks on the walls. Toothpicks and dedication? Or advanced machinery?|
