Deciphering the Symbol Of Krypton
As the work proceeded on the examination of the stone tablets excavated near the South Pole in 1947 by the top secret committee of scientists headed by Dr. Margaret Mead, the similarities between the civilization of Krypton described by Siegel and Shuster in their invention, were proving to be strikingly similar to the planet collectively called Krypton. It was becoming clear that this discovery could have enormous implications on all scientific fields. Dr. Mead, recognizing the ramifications, wrote in a letter to President Truman dated May 4th, 1948, “the expertise of a theoretical physicist is needed to fill in large gaps of uncertainty that now existed in the interpretation of facts. Albert is the only person qualified to assist us.” It is believed that she was referring to Professor Albert Einstein.
The renowned physicist was contacted and offered to join the scientists. However, due to illness, he was unable to attend. He sent his protege, Dr. Bengt Edlen, a Swedish professor of physics and astronomer, specialized in spectroscopy, who analyzed the spectra of Wolf-Rayet Stars and participated in solving the Corona Mystery for which he received a Gold Medal from The Royal Astronomical Society in 1945.
His expertise was crucial in deciphering the symbols found on each of the numerous stones (see image above). His opinion was that “it represented the bipolar nature of the star system. The two outer points on the parallelogram, or in this case the diamond, symbolize each sun; the other points contained within the image were the planet’s 8 moons revolving around Krypton, the center circle, within a cube distribution.”
Einstein, who had been working on a mathematical construct for an emerging star system, was kept appraised of the group’s progress. According to declassified documents, he sent word on February 22nd, 1949, “the bipolar nature of the planet’s twin star system suggested that their physical laws would have been affected by whichever sun they were closest to at any giving moment in their rotation, while the equidistant nature of Krypton’s position within the symbol would categorically have created a third set of physics canceling the inverse effects of each star.” The only problem with his theory was its assumption that each star was of equal mass. Nevertheless, Einstein’s hypothesis led the way to more profound theories that would uncover Krypton’s geology as crystalline.
Dr. Edlen suggested that a spectral analysis of the stones could identify solar particles of each star. Using these findings, and with Einstein’s help, theoretical formulas were developed for each set of conditions that would define Krypton’s laws of gravity and electro -magnetism. No mathematical model could be found in any of the documents and it has been suggested they were either lost or destroyed in the plane crash that claimed the life of governmental specialists who were carrying Einstein’s papers to the scientific committee in early June 1949. No copies have been located in the collection of Einstein’s archives, currently at the Smithsonian Institute that are still classified Top Secret.
Microscopic crystals found embedded within the stones provided the first tangible evidence that could be used for experimentation. Understanding the chemical structure of the remnants could explain their ability to contain an inexhaustible amount of solar energy, which, according to documents, was a source of dissent among the group of scientists, some of whom were later found to also have ties to the fossil fuel industry that had a stake in suppressing the potential rewards that this discovery would impact on the oil industry.
The amount of data being generated increased daily as the story of Krypton’s existence, its science and fate began to unfold. According to other documents, the hieroglyphics found on the stones were now being compared to all known Earth languages for clues, perhaps patterns that would break the code and shed more knowledge onto the mystery of krypton; the same approach was used when the Rosetta Stone, an ancient Egyptian Artifact used to decipher hieroglyphics, was uncovered in 1799 in Rosetta, a harbor on the Mediterranean Coast.
