The scientific debunking of the Paranormal

From spooky ghosts to UFOs to mysterious floating lights there are all kinds of weird stories out there that seem impossible to explain unless there's something paranormal going on but even the creepiest campfire stories can be debunked with the right questions and some careful observations so here are three times scientists looked into something strange and found a perfectly rational although in some cases still very unsettling scientific explanation for it like in one supposedly haunted lab in the UK in the late 1990s. People who worked there could often feel the waves of fear or shivers and one engineer saw a terrifying gray apparition from the corner of his eye but he figured there had to be some reason for it this engineer also happened to be a fencer and one day he brought in his foil a thin fencing sword to the lab to adjust it for an upcoming competition when he set 


the foil in a clamp the blade started vibrating almost like a ghost was shaking it except it wasn't a ghost by moving the foil around the lab and observing it he figured out that the room contained a low-frequency sound wave which eventually he traced back to the labs new fan that explained pretty much all of the spooky stuff that had been going on the foil shook because the sound wave was at


its resonant frequency a frequency that easily made it start vibrating all objects have one it's also why if you run your finger around the glass it'll sing a nice little song this wave had a frequency of around 19 Hertz or 19 vibrations per second which is right below the range for human hearing it's called infrasound and studies have shown that strong infrasound waves can cause uneasiness and dizziness which can seem a lot like haunting because infrasound vibrates through your body's tissues it can affect your sense of balance your breathing rate and your blood pressure it can even cause apparitions since the resonant frequency of your eyeballs is also about 19 Hertz so the ghosts the engineers saw was caused by his eyeballs vibrating which is super freaky actually kind of gross to think about but it was not an actual ghost in some stories something that's said to be paranormal is caught oncamera to the internet is full of photos of long rod-like insects with multiple sets of wings and they've been passed off as things like UFOs aliens and interdimensional creatures it turns out that they're their bugs usually moths the creation of these ghostly images has to do with how


something like a moth will flap several times while a camera is recording one frame and as it's capturing that image the insect is also moving across its field of view the result is that the moth looks like a blurry elongated rod with multiple sets of wings if you've ever tried to take a long exposure photograph of anything you have probably seen something like this the length of the rod is relative to how fast the insect is moving and how far it is from the camera the faster and closer it flies the longer your mysterious interdimensional visitor cryptozoologists call these rods or sky fish I'd like both of those names a lot but as cool as they sound and as cool as it would be to have alien interdimensional sky fish flying around us these are just mostly moths flying to a different beat. cameras work insects usually beat their wings a lot faster than a camera can capture an image so Finally, if you've ever been to the tiny city of Marfa Texas you might have driven down US Highway 67 and spotted what looked like a UFO in the distance on some nights these so-called Marfa lights appear above the horizon hovering and blinking like spaceships there is even a viewing area for them along the road but surprise they are also not aliens local university students thought they might be caused by car headlights so in 2004 they did some experiments to shed some light on the situation they set up cameras to monitor the lights and a box to measure the traffic on Highway 67 they also tracked a car driving down the road to see if the highway was directly visible from the Marfa lights viewing area the results a word that spooky or surprising they found that the Marfa lights were probably caused by the atmosphere reflecting headlights from the highway there was a direct relationship between


the number of Marfa lights and the amount of traffic and the group at the viewing area could even tell which lights correspondent to the car they were tracking in 2008 these findings were supported by another team who found that the lights could also come from street lights or campfires. You'd think it'd be pretty easy to tell whether what you're looking at is a pair of headlights or an alien spaceship, but the Marfa lights are tricky because they don't really look like headlights, they're often magnified and kind of shimmer that comes from a mirage where light rays Bend and displace an image specifically, it's caused by what's known as a superior Mirage, where an image appears above where it should be it, happens when a layer of warmer air 


sits on top of cooler air, which is the opposite of normal usually, the lower layers of the atmosphere are warmer because they're heated by the Earth's surface air at different temperatures has different densities, so it bends light at different angles when light rays pass through a temperature inversion they can bend in a way that creates an image above where the object actually is and to be clear, when it comes to the Marfa lights, that object is just car headlights on a lonely road, not an alien spaceship there are plenty of other stories of the paranormal that is still unexplained whether because they can't be replicated or there isn't enough data about them to come to any conclusions but sometimes all you need are the right questions and the healthy dose of skepticism.
