Mysterious Plate

In May 1992, we shot a documentary about UFO studies in Estonia. At the end, we had almost the whole day free, so my friend, who is a well-known ufologist in Estonia, proposed to visit an interesting place, as he called it. While we were driving through Tallinn, then along a country highway, my friend told me a real crime story… It started in the middle 60s. A dweller of a settlement which is not far from Tallinn, car mechanic Virgo Mitt, decided to dig a well in his yard. Everything was going OK. Though suddenly his spade knocked against some metal thing. Virgo tried to dig the thing out, though to no effect: this was a big, literally endless plate. Virgo found a paving breaker and tried to make a hole.

The first level, which was very hard and thick. After it, there was another stuff, more structured (like nails). Virgo worked hard. In several dais, in the 1-1.5-inch plate, there was a good hole, which was enough for a well. Water started to swell too fast, so Virgo decided to refuse from his idea of the well and to fill the hole up. He threw almost all grit to the hole, though he kept a couple of the plate splinters, about 10 cm in diameter. One of them was later lost, while the other had an unusual fate.

Virgo Mitt told about his find to his friend, who was a chemist. Therefore, this piece of metal was handed over to Tallinn Polytechnic Institute, while in 1969 it got to the table of Herbert Wijding, future deputy director of Estonian Geology Institute. This could have been the end of the story, though once an engineer touched the splinter. The hit was as big a powerful electric discharge: the engineer lost consciousness. Herbert Wijding was shocked: he held this splinter so many times! Of course, he could not neglect his mysterious fact. And he started his own investigation.

Before sending the splinter to experts, he cut it in several thin plates. The scientists were surprised: in a very small example, they found 38 elements of the periodic system, most of which cannot coexist in nature. The example was not radioactive, though very magnetic. According to the conclusion of academician Obraztsov and professor Yelkin, this was a composite stuff armored with calcium-iron-silicon fibres, while its matrix was of metal glass. According to academician Kishkin, alloys like that are not known in aviation. Such alloy must be firm against heat and acids of any concentration. Specialists suppose this stuff was most likely created through powder metallurgy method under a very high pressure, which is impossible with today’s level of science.
