‘The universe is full of mysteries that challenge our current knowledge. In “Beyond Science” Epoch Times collects stories about these strange phenomena to stimulate the imagination and open up previously undreamed of possibilities. Are they true? You decide.
Some of the strange moments in our lives may make us question “Are we living in ‘The Matrix’? Was that a glitch?”

‘AirAsia flight number QZ8501, bound from the Indonesian city of Surabaya to Singapore, has lost contact with air traffic control, the airline has confirmed. The missing flight is an Airbus A320-200 with up to 161 people on board.
Indonesia air transport authorities have provided details of the plane’s last position.
“We are coordinating with the rescue team and looking for its position. We believe it is somewhere between Tanjung Pandan, a town on Belitung island, and Kalimantan,” Indonesia’s air transportation director-general Djoko Murjatmodjo stated, as cited by AFP.’
‘A film crew from Russia spent eight days in the republic of Kazakhstan, in the village of Kalachi, located some 445 kilometers from the capital of Astana. The village became known for a strange sickness that was sowing panic among local residents. Thus, nearly every resident of the village can fall asleep at any time, whatever they may do. RT journalists made a special documentary about the bizarre phenomenon. ‘
‘The power of intentional thought and deliberate action is much greater than most people realize, and a Stanford University scientist claims to have accidentally come up with a way to bottle and store this intent for future use, even when the people who originally experienced it are not physically present.

‘The quest for a true invisibility cloak, seen in films such as Harry Potter, is the holy grail for physicists.
But while many have been able to briefly conceal objects from view, and even shield sounds, one team has developed a way to cloak entire events.
By concealing these events behind strands of laser light, the researchers could make it appear as if a moment – such as an object moving from one position to another – had spontaneously occurred of travelled inside a ‘bubble of time.’
‘Astronomers have revealed hypnotic images of swirls, loops and arches that trace the remarkable structure of our Milky Way’s magnetic field.
In what could rival works by Van Gogh, Esa claims that these remarkable images are some of the first to reveal the shape of the our galaxy magnetic barrier.
Scientists hope its patterns could someday help them gaze back in time to get a clearer picture of what the universe looked like just after the Big Bang.’
