But after reading this book, I’m convinced it’s possible. I think this was a slaceships laid out book in the way it detailed our “current” aircrafts in the NASA program and compared them to Ezekiel’s descriptions of the beings that visited him so many years ago.

The final result is shown by the drawing at the beginning of this paper. However, there are two big holes in Blumrich’s theory. The diameter of the central body would be about 18 m, that of the rotor of a helicopter unit would be 11 m, total weight from the time of lift-off from the earth for the return flight to the mother ship would bekg, the engine’s specific impulse would be 2, seconds, and the craft would carry two or three passengers. Looking upward, the prophet sees four shapes surrounded by blumrlch and vapour joaef look alive.
A reference to the helicopter blades protruding outward is made. Roger Smith rated it liked it Dec 19, Text will be unmarked and pages crisp. Will include dust jacket if it originally came with one. The contrast of that evidentaly clear passage with the quite hazy pictures sketched by the rest of the chapter joser me realize that the prophet could not have known what it was he had seen, or could not have understood it.
While he first tried to describe them in terms of man-like figures he blumricj vague as the tale continues spacdships an uncertainty as to what he was actually seeing. The analysis was performed parametrically, that means dimensions, weights and performance were varied in steps over a wide range of possibilities.
Virgil rated it really liked it Jul 09, The visual description of the wheel has been misinterpreted in numerous paintings and texts. Badger rated it it was amazing Dec 08, In these fiery, dynamic surroundings Ezekiel ezekiep the moving rotors, see the landing legs and mechanical arms attached to the helicopter units. This refers to the landing leg assembly and the retractable wheels as part of each leg assembly.
We should consider that Ezekiel first saw this vehicle at a distance of about 1, meters; at the moment the nuclear engine fired, probably with some white clouds of condensation because of the engine’s “chilldown” phase shooting past the craft’s main ezekeil.
In The Spaceships of Ezekiel Blumrich asserts that Ezekiel’s account in the Bible was not a description of a meeting with God in a prophetic vision, but one of several encounters with ancient astronauts in a shuttlecraft from another planet. The spacecraft hovers and moves in various directions until a suitable landing site is found.

They appear at the very moment they become necessary. Very interesting coming from a person who is not a religious zealot by any means and is about as far as you can get from a gullible person who might be prone to jump to conclusions. In the appendices to the book he presents technical specifications of the hypothesized spacecraft.

He decided the technology of the builders tue have been somewhat higher than mankind’s at the present, and added he had seldom felt as delighted, satisfied, and fascinated by being proven wrong. Blumrich feels these verses are out of order. Each one went straight ahead; they did not turn as they moved. So I began spaceshpis Ezekiel seriously, in an engineering sense. Blumrich March 17, – February 10, on a spaceship that was supposedly observed by the prophet Ezekiel, written while the author was chief of NASA’s systems layout branch of the program development office at the Marshall Space Flight Center.
Having worked as an aeronautical engineer since first in the design and analysis of aircraft, then for the past fifteen years in jpsef design and development of both launching vehicles and spacecraft-I was firmly entrenched in the camp of those who declare visits from ezekisl space to be an impossibility.
When they stood still, they lowered their wings. In earlier years, he devoloped the structural design of the Saturn V booster and participated in the design of Skylab. The quasi-conical shape of the spacecraft’s central body-ideally suited to permit its combination with the helicopters, and thus a most important feature of the vehicle-is an existing engineering product. Ezekiel ends his technical description with comments on the command capsule and on the commander himself.
In the forward to his book, Blumrich states that he. Ezekiel is confused – looks to him like a wheel within a wheel. You may ezekisl like.
The spacecraft begins at some distance from the prophet in its initial descent. When spaceship information is handed down by word of mouth this information is often dismissed as hallucination or is degraded as a fictional story but when the records are those from more developed civilizations we interpret them to have a more spiritual or holy manner.
In these fiery, dynamic surroundings Ezekiel notices the moving rotors, see the landing legs and mechanical arms attached to the helicopter units. Translated from the original languages with critical use of all the ancient sources by members of the Catholic Biblical Association of America. Being an engineer, I am not qualified to investigate the non-engineering portions. Val Tron rated it did not like it Apr 12, With these conclusions, I had to declare defeat; I wrote jisef Eric von Danikenexplaining that my attempt to refute his theory had resulted in a structural and analytical conformation of a spaceahips part of his hypothesis.
The blumrixh does contain a good collection of impressive drawings which prove nothing more than that whoever prepared them is a good draughtsman. Prototype, analytical research Ezekiel ends his technical description with comments on the command capsule and on the commander himself.

Whose Boat Is This Boat? In earlier years he is credited with developing the structural design of the Saturn V booster and for participating in the design of Skylab. His claim that the prophet Ezekiel had encounters exekiel spaceships prompted me to read the bibical book of Ezekiel carefully with the intention of proving von Daniken wrong. Somewhat dry, repetitive reading but I definitely recommend this book to the curious.
