Th Mars500 simulated mission went into orbit around Mars last month, and now, two of the crew have descended to the Martian surface to begin further tests… when I say Martian surface, I really mean a sandpit at a Moscow institute!

In the late 80s I started investigating UFOs and crop circles and joined the CCCS (Centre for Crop Circle Studies) and a local group researching strange sightings and reports along the south coast of Dorset (UK). In the early ’90s I started my own research group called SPS (Strange Phenomena Studies), this was renamed in 2004 to Cryptoworld.
