Even with my imagination, this I’m not buying.
If you want on or off the Electric Universe Ping List, Freepmail me.
Woops, you beat me to it. My guess for this phenomenon:
"There was an article written on Hart's life by Margarethe Casson that appeared in the magazine Rocks and Minerals (no. 396, 1972), that mentions this occasion. In the article she writes: "At the time he was puzzled and quite unable to explain a large expanse of greenish glass which covered the sands as far as he could see. Later on, during his life he passed by the White Sands area after the first atomic explosion there, and he recognized the same type of silica fusion which he had seen fifty years earlier in the African desert.""
That would make him at least a spry 75.
It's possible that the omission of the type of engineer coupled with the assumption that all of MIT's engineering disciplines were offered the day MIT opened it's doors leads to incorrect conclusions.
Suppose he was among the first Chemical Engineering graduates?
From MIT's web site:
The first chemical engineering curriculum at MIT was offered in 1888 and helped to establish chemical engineering as a discipline.
A little math...
First chemical engineer graduate 1893. 1893+50 years=1943, pretty consistent with Casson's biography.
He could well have been among the first graduates in:
Chemical Engineering (Department established 1888)
Naval and Oceanic engineering (Department established 1893)
Aeronautical engineering (Department established 1896)
Geology and Mining engineering (first engineering class offered 1871)
The math on the other disciplines is left to the reader as an exercise...
They must’ve been nearby the Ancient Saturn V Launch site.
Perhaps not. See #45
Might the glass have been a result of plasma discharges or “planetary lightning”?
Large meteors with low metal content explode before reaching the ground. The energy released in such events can exceed that of the most powerful nuclear weapons; this is the leading theory for the Tunguska explosion.

Some of the world's most unusual geography can be found across North Africa. Could it have been created by massive electric discharges in the recent past? The Libyan Desert is an empty wasteland and can support no human habitation. The central portion is exceptionally arid, where it rains less than once in thirty years. It is so dry and barren that NASA chose it as an experimental base of operations for the Viking lander project, since they considered it to most closely resemble the conditions on Mars. There are no roads or tracks, just the great open void.
Previous Thunderbolts Picture of the Day articles have described the strange landscapes across the African continent, as well as their anomalous attributes. Giant craters, deep cracks in the Earth, and lightning-like Lichtenberg figures etched into the terrain all point to events that do not lend themselves to uniformitarian explanations.
In 1932, British surveyor Patrick Clayton was the first European to explore the area where the borders of Egypt, Libya, and Sudan meet. As he crossed the Great Sand Sea, he ran over something that made crunching noises under his wheels. It turned out to be silica glass...
Like Siberia it blows up in the atmosphere!!!
Leonardo Vintiñi had a little too much chianti.
That’s what I think too. And it looks like Swordmaker does as well. The book he referenced in post #42 talks about the planetary lighting plasma discharge phenomenon. It refers to it as cosmic thunderbolts. That book is part of a series. Another book in the series called “The Electric Universe” has all the science and math behind this idea.
It is more evidence that there were wars going on by ABs as written in ancient writings. The question remains as to why the ancient writings (all ancient writings about space craft or what the ancients called other names) are believed to be SIFI and not real.
I would like to propose a WAG concerning the cause of desert glass. Instead of atomic detonations they we caused by exhaust blast from interstellar space ships landing and taking off. That fits in better with the old Indian sagas.
Obviously, there was a large interstellar trading civilization in Neolithic times. One wonders which star they came from?
