The Dropa Stones Mystery: Do These Strange Artifacts Prove We're Not Alone In The Universe?

In 1938, a Chinese archeologist made an odd discovery that has baffled people for years. He discovered caves with a series of graves in it of an ancient humanoid race. The beings in the graves were only about 3 feet in height, with unusually large heads.

He also found 716 discs, known as the Dropa Stones, with spiral grooves carved into them. Since then, many have been trying to crack the mystery of who this race of people might be, and the purpose of the stones.

Unfortunately, the Chinese government was unwilling to share the stones for a proper investigation, and now the stones, and the remains of the humanoid race, seem to have vanished. Some people speculate that the evidence may point to something otherworldly.

It's quite possible the Dropa people might have been a pygmy race, but even pygmies aren't usually that short-- they're more likely to be around 4 or 5 feet tall, on average. The Dropa people, at three feet, are exceptionally small for known humanoids.

Their unusually large heads and eye sockets have sparked rumors that what the archeologist actually discovered were the bodies of a crew of aliens that crash-landed in the Himalayan mountains.

In the 1960's, the stones were put in the hands of Professor Tsum Um Nui of the Beijing Academy for Ancient Studies. The professor took a closer look at the strange grooves in the stone only to discover that the grooves were actually a series of hieroglyphics.

Tsum claimed he was able to translate the writing. He said the discs told the story of an alien space craft that crashed on earth, and of the tiny alien beings who survived and attempted to colonize. The nearby human tribes found the aliens to be too short and ugly, and feared them, but eventually the two groups made peace and merged, and eventually, they began to mate with each other.

The alien-human hybrid result is the Dropa tribe, a primitive tribe in the area that is supposed to still live in the mountains.

After Tsum's discovery, China sent some of the stones to Russia for examination. Russian scientists scraped and tested them, discovering they contained a large amount of cobalt and other metals. When placed on turntables, they vibrated and hummed, giving off an unusual electric charge. In attempting to date the stones, they found them to be some 12,000 years old.

An Austrian engineer by the name of Ernst Wegerer visited the museum in 1974 to have a view of some of the stones. He photographed them, but said the hieroglyphs were too small to show up in images. They would require a microscope to view them.

After that, the stones, and the remains of the tiny humanoids, disappeared. Some believe the Chinese government has put them in a secret place to cover up that ancient humans came into contact with aliens.

How much evidence is there that the story is true? Well, not much, unfortunately, for UFO enthusiasts. The origins of the story seem to be the internet, with one website quoting another as a source.

The people named in the story don’t seem to exist, and there has never been any ‘Academy for Ancient Studies’ in China. All that remains are a few poor-quality photos that could have easily been faked.

If there is any truth to the story of the stones, or the little skeletons that might have been buried with them, we’ll never know until the evidence can be found and examined.
