Most Mysterious And Dangerous Zone Of Silence | ఆధునిక పరికరాలను మింగేస్తున్న ఎడారి | With Subtitles

The Mapimi Silent Zone is the popular name for a desert patch near the Bolson de Mapimi in Durango, Mexico, overlapping the Mapimi Biosphere Reserve. It is the subject of an urban myth that claims it is an area where radio signals and any type of communications cannot be received.

However, communications equipment tends to work properly in the zone. Guides assert that the zone moves around; as a result locals are highly skeptical of the zone’s existence.

On the day of 11th July, 1970 an Athena rocket being used in a training exercise by the US Air Force lost control, accidentally invaded Mexican air space, and landed in the desert region of Durango hundreds of miles from the planned destination. The rocket was carrying two small containers of Cobalt 57, a radioactive element. Immediately, a team of covert specialists arrived to find the fallen rocket. The aerial search extended over three weeks. Finally, when the rocket was found, a road was made to transport the wreckage, as well as a small amount of contaminated top soil. All these operations were made under a fair amount of security, spurring rumors and myths, among the locals about what was happening.

A local named Jaime was hired as ‘Capitan’ to guard the rocket while the US prepared to take it back, which after a couple of weeks of preparation, they did. However, Jaime had rather liked the attention and money that the missile had brought, and began playing up the rumors that the strange incident had generated.

The landowners, and potential hotel builders, all agreed that this was indeed very ‘special’ land. A handful of scientists were then said to have confirmed these strange phenomena – though these studies are, unsurprisingly, very difficult to find – and the legend was formed.

Among the legends, radios didn’t work there, inside a silent zone you cannot hear the conversations of other people, very tall people in ‘tight silver suits’ are often seen, it is a pole where ‘Earth energy’ is concentrated, ‘light’ spheres could be seen flying over the zone, UFO’s land here, and so on.

The phenomena is now claimed to have been first reported in the 1930s by Francisco Sarabia, a Mexican pilot, who claimed that his radio had mysteriously failed to function while flying over the zone. Similar claims have been made by other persons who have visited the zone, that radio signals didn’t work and compasses were unusable. Other claims are that the area attracts meteorites and causes various mental problems.

People now come from all over to experience the area, look for the ever illusive ‘silent zones’, and sometimes attempt communication with otherworldly beings. Though visitors may be surprised to find their compasses and radios working just fine, an experienced guide will remind them that since the zones move, it can be hard to locate them.

Unfortunately these new age and paranormal enthusiasts, known locally as zoneros or silenciosos, are now having an adverse effect on the desert area that contains the silent zone. By collecting and keeping both natural and historical artifacts they find in the dessert, they are depleting the area of finite natural and historical resources. They have also caused some irritation to the Mapimí Biosphere Reserve an ecological research station, which is concerned about being associated with either the silent zone or the ‘zoneros’.
