    Calling all aliens: What's the best way to contact our galactic neighbors? - PART II

    This is followed by a solar location map; mathematical and physical unit definitions; a tutorial in human biochemistry, anatomy, and reproduction; information about the planet Earth and its structure; images of terrestrial geology, climatic regions, animal life, and plant life. There's also a large compendium on human life, activities, architecture, eating, technology, and music, as well as printed messages from US President James Carter and UN Secretary General Kurt Waldheim.

    It will be a good 40,000 years before any of these probes comes within two light years of any other star systems and odds are that none will be found for millions or even billions of years.

    AI ambassadors

    But what does this slowpoke approach for sending messages have over light-speed radio signals? Not much at the moment, but while we're at the physical limits of what radio can do, interstellar travel still has a long way to go. At the moment, we're limited to using primitive chemical rockets or ion drives that aren't really suited to the task of jumping between the stars, but that could well change one day, if we're patient enough.

    In 1964, Soviet astronomer Nikolai Kardashev came up with a way of classifying civilizations based on how much energy they are able to harness. A Type I civilization is limited to the power available on a single planet – about 4 X 1012 joules. A Type II would be able to use the output of an entire star, which comes out to 4 X 1026 joules. Meanwhile, a Type III civilization would have the output of a galaxy at 4 X 1037 joules.

    The more power a civilization has at its disposal, the more efficient it becomes. One interesting point that SETI scientists have found is that when a culture reaches the point beyond a Type I civilization, the difference in efficiency between sending radio messages and sending unmanned probes becomes negligible.

    In 1960, Ronald N Bracewell of Stanford University put forward a proposal for using robotic probes rather than sending radio messages as our way of opening contact with other beings. Let's look an updated version of his idea.

    Imagine it's a few centuries from now when the energy problems of today seem as quaint as a flint or deer antler shortage in Neolithic Britain. Humanity now has so much surplus energy at its command that sending an interstellar probe seems no more farfetched than sending a probe to Pluto does in our day.

    But these are far more advanced spacecraft than any we have today. They are larger and more powerful. They are self-refueling, self-repairing, and can even duplicate themselves as required using advanced 3D printing techniques. They are also fully autonomous with computers that have an almost organic level of artificial intelligence.

    These probes aren't very fast, reaching only 10 percent of the speed of light, but they don't have to be. With no passengers or crew, they can afford to spend a few decades or even centuries getting to their destination. As they approach the candidate star selected by mission control, each probe has the ability to study the system in detail, identify the planets most likely to possess intelligent life, and make an assessment of whether to proceed or carry on to a more promising system.

    If a planet does turn out to have a civilization advanced enough to make contact with, the probe would be programmed to discretely stand off and listen to radio, television, and data transmissions. Unlike trying to pick up signals from light years away, the probe could do so from only millions of miles or might even send in scouts to orbit the planet for a closer look and listen.

    The Golden Record (Credit: NASA)

    Already the advantages of sending out such a system become obvious. The Bracewell probe would be intelligent enough and programmed with enough precautionary algorithms to determine if the civilization in question is safe to contact or whether it could be more in Earth's interests to stay silent. It could even remain on station for decades or even centuries as it sends back reports to Earth.

    The same watching brief might even apply if it finds a civilization that hasn't reached a high enough level of technology to communicate with. It could patiently wait and watch as it evolves, then decide whether to communicate as soon as it starts receiving radio transmissions. Or it could leave behind an artifact, as in 2001: a Space Odyssey, that would inform Earth if it was ever disturbed, while the probe itself moves on to more productive targets. Or it might duplicate itself and send the new one on.

    If the probe did decide to make contact, it would be in a far better position than someone trying to start a conversation across 100 light years of space. For one thing, the probe would have no trouble making its presence known by blasting a powerful signal at the planet, perhaps re-broadcasting television programs with a six hour delay on the same frequency as the original broadcasts to make clear that this isn't some kind of an echo.

    When contact is established, communications would be clear with a minimum of interference and responses would be received in real time. In addition, a probe orbiting the planet would have huge bandwidth at its disposal to send and receive a very large amount of data – much of it in the form of video.

    It would also be a simple task for the probe to instruct the natives on how to build compatible transceivers for the most efficient exchanges or to speak directly to Earth. On the other hand, the probe could act as a gatekeeper by relaying messages to Earth and censoring information, like our location, if the indigenes prove untrustworthy.

    Because the probe has artificial intelligence, it can adapt its communications to suit the recipient. It could indulge in true conversations with the natives, asking questions and being asked questions in turn as an exercise in both teaching and learning. It could even provide language lessons with suitable feedback. It might even be able to connect directly to the planet's version of the internet and use deep learning to better understand the culture or even to communicate directly with individuals.

    Indeed, these exchanges could make such a probe, in the broad sense, profitable. Instead of blasting energy into space from Earth with no known return on the investment, the probe could send its findings to Earth much more economically. In fact, unlike radio signals, an autonomous probe program would continue operate long after it had been abandoned back on Earth.

    It might even act as an insurance policy for our civilization. If Earth is destroyed, then at least our culture might live on – if only as a record, albeit an intelligent record. Or the probe could be programmed with a wide sampling of the human genome and supplied with information on how to construct a biological printer that would allow it to build human cells and clone them. Scientists are already doing this with simple viruses, so it may one day be possible with Homo sapiens. It may even be possible to bioengineer the ova at code level to adapt the colonists to their new environment.

    Taking things a step further, there's no reason why the probe must be mechanical. Today, scientists are able to encode images and even videos on bacterial DNA. Perhaps, in time, some sort of microorganism could be developed with complex messages encoded on it as a form of self-replicating courier placed in small probes or turned into spores and carried on the solar winds into the galaxy. Maybe one day our first message won't be heard over the radio, but seen through a microscope.

    Today, we have a lot more experience beaming messages into deep space as our unmanned missions probe the edges of the Solar System and beyond. We know more about how to send and receive data with a minimum of wattage, how to use tight-beam radio, and how to carry out precise tracking of space objects. We're even experimenting with laser communications in deep space and looking at new ways to send spacecraft to the nearest stars.

    But whatever methods we may adopt in the future, our first messages are already on their way and we're waiting for the reply. The odds are long, however, and we won't hear much for about 50,000 years, so there's time to put the kettle on.

    Since their launches nearly 40 years ago, the Voyager missions have changed how we look at our solar system.

    In August and September 1977, Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 were launched into space, on a trajectory that would take them to Jupiter, Saturn and beyond.

    They discovered Jupiter's ring, the dark spot on Neptune and the volcanoes on Io. In 2012, Voyager 1 became the first human-made craft to enter interstellar space.

    Along for the rides on Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 are the famous Golden Records: phonographs with music, greetings and photographs meant to give aliens an introduction to Earth and its inhabitants.

    The missions are the subject of a new documentary "The Farthest -- Voyager in Space," which will air on PBS stations at 9 p.m. on Aug. 23.

    There was an advance screening of the film at the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia on Aug. 10, complete with a panel featuring Voyager mission scientists Fran Bagenal (Co-Investigator Plasma Science) and Rich Terrile (Imaging Science), as well as Nick Sagan, the son of scientist Carl Sagan. Nick Sagan gave one of the greetings on the Golden Record when he was six years old.

    We spoke with Bagenal and Terrile before the screening on Facebook Live. You can watch the full interview in the video below, or just scroll past the video to read highlights.

    What is the most interesting thing we've learned from Voyager?

    Terrile: "I think the most interesting thing was that the solar system is far more surprising than our imaginations had led us to believe. The eye-opening thing about Voyager is we discovered that the real solar system was more like science fiction than science fact up until that point."

    Bagenal: "The moons of the giant planets were all so different. We thought it'd be like our moon, very boring, kind of dull. But no... each one has a character, a special geology, a whole special formation, all sorts of different things we learnt. Everytime we went to a new place it was totally different."

    When did you feel like Voyager had been successful?

    Terrile: "The very first encounter with Jupiter. We knew the most about Jupiter than any other objects we've been to. We've been there before with other spacecrafts. It's closer so telescopes can see it more clearly. But at Jupiter there were just so many surprises. And as Fran said, the moons were just this incredible variety of places with erupting volcanoes, moons that the geology changes at the same timeframe the weather changes on our planet. That was just  so mind blowing. That just set the stage for one incredible encounter after another."

    Bagenal: "One of the most exciting images I remember seeing was in the New York Times and it was above the fold and it was a picture of Jupiter with a great red spot with the moons in front. Famous picture and I'll always have it in my  mind. Going into the news agents, as they had back then, and looking in and seeing this picture was fantastic."

    Pennsylvania guide to the Great American Solar Eclipse August 21

    The Great American Solar Eclipse will move across the U.S., from northwest to southeast, on Monday, August 21.

    What do you hope is the future of space exploration?

    Terrile: "The future was always supposed to be something more exciting than the reality that has happened. I grew up in the '60s at the start of the space program, Apollo. If you extrapolated from what the beginnings of our space program were in 1961... by '69 we got to the moon. We had cars on the moon. We developed rendezvous docking, ability to get into orbit, space suits, all the technology we use today. It's hard to believe we're in 2017 and we don't even have the capability to go into Earth orbit with humans."

    Bagenal: "I'm going to disagree with you...there's nothing that humans can do in space that robots can't do better, faster, cheaper and more effectively except tourism. I would argue that the answer is robots and the future is robots. We're going to send a whole batch of robots out there to go to all sorts of places. The next place is Europa where we're going to go look at the ice and we're going to find out whether or not there could possibly be organisms underneath, potentially life-related organisms, and whether or not there's any communication between the ocean that's underneath and the surface. That will be very exciting and we'll send robots to go do it."

    Research that could change the world from Philadelphia universities

    Research that could change the world from Philadelphia universities

    Researchers at Temple University, Drexel University and University of Pennsylvania are working hard to change the world for the better. Here's how they plan to do it.

    It's interesting that you mentioned tourism. I feel like that's a lot of what we hear about today when it comes to new innovations is people wanting to go and tour space and go on luxury trips. Do you feel like that's part of the future then?

    Terrile: "One of the things, I worked for Jim Cameron for awhile. And we talk about what makes something dramatic. Clearly a human in space is a dramatic thing. And he put it a little differently, he said what makes it dramatic is when the protagonist is in the picture. What technology allows us to do today is to take those images and the data we get from planetary encounters and not just make that available to one person who is walking on a planetary surface, but make that available to everybody through virtual reality and the kinds of things we're going to see in the next few years.

    "We're going to have that absolute visceral experience. Today, at JPL, we can put on these glasses and walk on the surface of Mars, bend down, look at the rocks and even cast shadows and leave footprints. It's an astonishing technology... that's really the future of exploring. Not just one person exploring, but all of us exploring."

    Bagenal: "The example I like to give is the Juno mission I'm involved in right now, which is a spacecraft that's in orbit around Jupiter. We have a camera on that spacecraft which is a citizen's science camera. We just took a bunch of pictures of the great red spot a couple weeks ago... all of those pictures are immediately made available to the public and the public takes those pictures, they explore, play with them and then they put them back up and share them... I think this is a new world. It isn't just those of us who are lucky to be professional scientists involved in this, it's everybody."

    What is one thing that you hope people learn from "The Farthest -- Voyager in Space?"

    Terrile: "For one thing, the breadth and depth and impact that mission had on science, technology and everything else. It's really astonishing. It's been 40 years since we launched Voyager and it's still going and it gave us our first view of the solar system. It changed our perspective. We learned not only how to explore planets but how to explore our own ability to command spacecraft.

    "Voyager was made with technology that was basically -- it was 1972 technology that was flown. I don't know if anybody remembers what it was like in 1972, but the magic that we carry around in our pockets -- cell phones -- would have been magic in those days. And computers and everything else have increased in capability in factors of several billions of time. Yet the technology that was frozen in 1972 has provided us with this incredible look."

    Bagenal: "The other thing is there was a strong team of people who worked very hard and did a lot of work and were creative and came up with ways to solve problems along the way. There was a lot more human activity needed with the technology, so the teams were quite large and they worked hard together to make this all work."

    The Voyager is famous for having the Golden Record. If you could put anything on it, what would you put on it today?

    Terrile: "A lot more data. To think about how little data there is on a phonograph record in those days. Very clearly it's hard to condense everything about ourselves and our planet and our society to what could fit on the phonograph."

    Pluto, will it ever be a planet again?

    Bagenal: "It is a planet! Hey! Dwarf people are people, dwarf planets are planets... actually what was very interesting was it got everybody debating, discussing and thinking what is a planet? Everybody got discussing stuff. Actually, despite the fact I've had big arguments with Mike Brown (the professor whose discovery of Eris led to the demotion of Pluto to dwarf planet status), we're still good friends, it was all good actually because it got people discussing, debating and talking and so on and so forth."

    Will we ever find evidence of life or the possibility of living organisms on other planets?

    Terrile: "I think we will. If we don't find it in our solar system, which I think it is a very very good probability that it exists in our solar system, if we don't, we'll find evidence on other planets. We've found thousands of other planets and we're going to get to the point where we can look for signatures of life."

    Bagenal: "It's tough. Looking for life isn't easy. It's not going to be the first mission to Europa (one of Jupiter's moons) that will find it, probably. It may be two or three later down the road. But it's a good chance. Enceladus (the sixth moon of Saturn) is another place, perhaps Titan (another one of Saturn's moons). I think Mars is overrated, personally."

    Terrile: "Mars may have had life... and certainly, if Mars had a viable environment. And we know Mars and Earth exchanged material."

    Bagenal: "Right. It's probably just slime, nothing very exciting."

    Terrile: "A habitable environment early on could have had at least Earth life on it."

    Bagenal: "Yeah, but it probably didn't wiggle."

    Terrile: "And if life started on Mars, then maybe that life showed up on our planet. Maybe we're Martians. These are the kind of questions that are actually valid in astrobiology."

    Bagenal: "It is true. The exchange of material between the planets, we're just beginning to explore the possibilities and ideas."

    The exoplanet system TRAPPIST-1 is about 40 light years (235 trillion miles) from Earth

    Do you feel the fact we've haven't gone to space in a while is a challenge for the next generation?

    Bagenal: "We have via robots. I see people excited by seeing what's happening on all the many robots we have on many planets around our solar system and what we're seeing with telescopes out further and beyond. I think what's exciting about the next generation is to go look at all these other places we've not been to yet and to use these robotic explorers to develop and find out more about these places.

    "It's a challenge, because the technology is difficult and you have to make it work -- but it's a good challenge."

    Terrile: "I also think we're seeing an erosion of science where people try to politicize it for their own needs, with things like climate change. They'll say 'oh those scientists, they have their own agenda. They're like the pharmaceutical industry or these other groups' but we're not. We're out to find the truth. We're out to explore. And whatever answer comes out, that's the answer. That's the truth. We're very careful about that. When the truth hurts, when the truth is not something that is politically viable, I'm afraid that people cash out on us for that."

    What is a question you always wish people ask you about your work, but never do?

    Bagenal: "I think some of the motivation, our own insight and drive. We sort-of talked a little bit about how we got into the science, but now what motivates me is seeing the excitement in the public arena. They're excited by what they see and what they learn... That gives me a lot of pleasure now, in seeing  that people are excited by science, thinking about how to communicate science and how to show people the excitement of working in science and not having them frightened about science and that they can be involved in science and do these things too."

    5 UFO Reports by Pilots and Astronauts That Will Have You Convinced

    UFO encounters are often dismissed by skeptics as the product of attention-seekers, hoaxes, or simply overactive imaginations. But what happens when the UFO is seen by some of the most trained and trustworthy professionals around? Compared to encounters by ground-dwelling civilians, cases of UFOs seen by pilots and astronauts are some of the most credible UFO stories around.
    These UFO sightings are, perhaps, the most convincing because these witnesses are highly respected professionals whom we trust with our lives. These individuals have nothing to gain by putting their careers and reputations on the line reporting bizarre happenings in the skies.
    More shocking is the sheer volume of these reported incidents that happen every year. Here’s a list of some of the more notable sightings of alien spacecraft by pilots and astronauts.

    1. Astronaut Leroy Chiao Reported a UFO While on a Space Walk with the ISS


    In 2005, astronaut Leroy Chiao, commander of the International Space Station, reported a UFO encounter during a space walk. He and a colleague were installing navigation antennas when something unusual caught Chiao’s eye. Below him in the Earth’s atmosphere he saw a line of lights that looked like “an upside-down question mark.”
    One non-UFO explanation for Chiao’s sighting offered by skeptics is that Chiao simply saw the bright lights of a fishing boat hundreds of miles below him. Of course, those would have to be some pretty insanely powerful fishing lights to be seen all the way in outer space – and why Chiao didn’t see the lights of other boats all over the ocean has never been explained.

    2. Turkish Pilots Saw a Mysterious Object – And So Did Citizens Below

    Pilots from Turkish Airlines were flying from the Turkish resort town of Bodrum to the country’s largest city, Istanbul. Suddenly, a mysterious green light appeared over the plane. As the pilot later testified,“An unidentified object with green lights passed 2- to 3,000 feet above us. Then it disappeared all of a sudden. We are guessing that it was a UFO.”
    The UFO was also reported to be seen around Istanbul’s Silivri district.
    The General Directorate of State Airports Authority denied spotting any image that fitted the description of the pilot. Doubters claim that the pilots saw a green laser pointer that was reflecting off a cloud. However, it seems pretty hard to believe pilots would never have seen a laser pointer before – plus, that would have had to be a pretty huge laser pointer to create an effect such as they described.
    For the record, pilots do not generally report fleeting flashes of light as UFOs.

    3. Reports Claim UFOs Met Astronauts During the Moon Landing

    According to unconfirmed reports, both Neil Armstrong and Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin saw UFOs shortly after that historic landing on the moon in Apollo 11 on July 21, 1969. Viewers listening to the broadcast heard Armstrong refer to lights above a crater before his audio feed went dead for a few minutes.
    According to former NASA employee Otto Binder, unnamed radio hams with their own VHF-receiving equipment (that bypassed NASA’s broadcasting) picked up the following exchange:
    NASA: What’s there?
    Apollo 11: These babies are huge, sir! Enormous!
    OH MY GOD! You wouldn’t believe it!
    I’m telling you there are other spacecraft out there,
    Lined up on the far side of the crater edge!
    They’re on the moon watching us!
    Armstrong and Aldrin have denied the exchange took place, but other have insisted that off the record, the astronauts have admitted to many scientists that they did indeed see something.

    4. Mercury Astronaut Slayton Tracked a Flying Saucer


    Gordon Cooper wasn’t the only Mercury astronaut to report strange encounters. Deke Slayton revealed in an interview he had seen UFOs in 1951:
    I was testing a P-51 fighter in Minneapolis when I spotted this object. I was at about 10,000 feet on a nice, bright, sunny afternoon. I thought the object was a kite, then I realized that no kite is gonna fly that high. As I got closer, it looked like a weather balloon, grey and about three feet in diameter. But as soon as I got behind the darn thing, it didn’t look like a balloon anymore. It looked like a saucer, a disk. About the same time, I realized that it was suddenly going away from me – and there I was, running at about 300 miles per hour. I tracked it for a little way, and then all of a sudden the damn thing just took off. It pulled about a 45-degree climbing turn and accelerated and just flat disappeared.

    5. Pilots Reported a Flying Saucer Over Bariloche Airport During a Mysterious Blackout

    In 1995, an Aerolineas Argentinas flight landing at Bariloche airport in Argentina reported that it was “buzzed” by a luminous disk moving in a way that defied the laws of physics. According to reports, the pilot was forced to take evasive maneuvers to avoid a collision. Strangely, at the same time, there was also a mysterious power shortage in Bariloche.
    There was also a power outage at the airport. One Argentine newspaper reported the air traffic control personnel as saying, “The control instruments went crazy.”
    The UFO was also seen by personnel on the ground, as well as the crew of a police plane flying 600 meters (2,000 ft) above.

    Paralyzed Monkeys Able to Walk Again With Brain Implant. Human Trials Are Next

    Jemere Ruby
    IN BRIEF
    • Using a system of electrodes, transmitters, receivers, scientists were able to restore leg function in a primate, completely bypassing damaged nerves.
    • While this remarkable feat may be decades away from human use, it is a promising development for the hundreds of thousands of people in the U.S. with spinal cord injuries

    INSTANT FUNCTION

    Electrodes implanted in the brain and spine have helped paralyzed monkeys walk. The neurologists behind the study reported that the implants restored function in the primates’ legs almost instantaneously. The findings are detailed in Nature

    The spinal cord of the subject monkey was partially cut, so the legs had no way of communicating with the brain. To mend the brain-spine interface, electrodes were placed on key parts of the monkey’s body. Implants were placed inside the monkey’s brain at the part that controls leg movement, together with a wireless transmitter sitting outside the skull. Electrodes were also placed along the spinal cord, below the injury.

    A computer program decoded brain signals indicative of leg movement and transmitted the signals to the electrodes in the spine. Within just a few seconds, the monkey was moving its leg. In a few days, it was walking on a treadmill.

    Alain Herzog/Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL)

    “The primate was able to walk immediately once the brain-spine interface was activated. No physiotherapy or training was necessary,” said Erwan Bezard, one of the authors of the study.

    PRIMATE-TO-PRIMATE

    This study is a massive breakthrough—it’s the first time implants have helped a primate walk. There has been much research to develop tech for paralyzed patients, but most lab trials were done on rodents. “It seems the principles learned in rats are now translating into primates,” said Jen Collinger, a University of Pittsburgh bioengineer.

    The results were astoundingly positive, but the researchers say that it will take at least a decade to fine-tune the technology for use in humans. Still, our bodies are greatly similar to that of monkeys, and the researchers believe transition could be quick.

    Exciting news about the study is that the components that the researchers used are legal for human use in Switzerland. The Swiss group of the study have started clinical trial with eight people with partial leg paralysis.

    We’re all eager for further development in the study—an innovation that could greatly change the lives of approximately 282,000 people in the U.S. with spinal cord injuries.

    Alien 'lava lamp' with dying magnetic field orbited Earth a billion years ago – science

    Ancient Moon rocks vital clue in space dynamo study

    The Moon's liquid core spun acting like dynamo to produce a magnetic field ...
    Illustration by Hernán Cañellas

    Scientists studying prehistoric lunar rocks have found evidence of a lava-lamp-like dynamo at the heart of our Moon’s metallic core that generated a long-lasting magnetic field.

    The Moon samples were collected in 1971 by astronauts, David Scott and James Irwin, during NASA’s Apollo 15 space mission.

    Now, a paper published in Science Advances this Friday reveals that one particular sample was formed one to 2.5 billion years ago in a relatively weak magnetic field of about five microteslas. Older rocks, said to be about four billion years old, showed signs that they were formed when the Moon’s magnetic field was 100 microteslas.

    In other words, the Moon's magnetic field weakened from 100 microteslas roughly four billion years ago to five microteslas around two billion years ago. That's a billion years longer than previously thought – it was generally thought the Moon's field strength sharply nosedived about three billion years ago.

    The paper's authors believe the Moon may once have had a molten metallic core. The slow churn of the liquid acted as a dynamo that powered the magnetic field around Earth's natural satellite. Benjamin Weiss, coauthor of the study and professor of planetary sciences at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in the US, said this week the concept of a planetary magnetic field being produced by a moving liquid core “is only a few decades old.”

    "What powers this motion on Earth and other bodies, particularly on the Moon, is not well-understood," he said.

    The researchers have proposed the dynamo is a result of the gravitational pull between the Earth and the Moon. At one point, the Moon was much closer to the Earth, and the gravitational forces present may have been strong enough to rotate the Moon’s exterior, dragging its liquid metallic center into a swirling motion, thus creating a powerful magnetic field.

    But as the Moon moved further away, the gravitational pull weakened and the Moon’s magnetic field started to drop. "As the Moon cools, its core acts like a lava lamp – low-density stuff rises because it's hot or because its composition is different from that of the surrounding fluid," Weiss said. "That's how we think the Earth's dynamo works, and that's what we suggest the late lunar dynamo was doing as well."

    Sonia Tikoo, lead author of the paper and an assistant professor at Rutgers University in the US, told The Register on Thursday she hopes more lunar samples will be collected in future to help pinpoint when the Moon’s dynamo faded away.

    “It would be great to obtain more lunar rocks, particularly from locations that were not sampled during the Apollo missions," she said. "There are several missions under development around the world – most in the proposal stage, but some beyond – that could involve a robotic sample return from the Moon in the next decade or so.

    “It would be even more awesome if NASA could send more humans to the Moon but that doesn't seem to be in the cards for the near future. China is aiming to send a crewed mission to the Moon by the mid-2030s. In the meantime, scientists will continue working with the Apollo samples we already have as well as with lunar meteorites that have landed on Earth.”

    The rocks have, essentially, helped scientists narrow down the timeline of the Moon’s dynamo. "Today the moon's field is essentially zero," Weiss said. "And we now know it turned off somewhere between the formation of this rock and today." ®

    SETI WANTS YOU TO DETECT ALIEN LASER SIGNALS

    Contributed by

    SETI doesn’t just believe in aliens. They believe aliens are broadcasting via radio signals and lasers everywhere—and that you could possibly find them.

    The SETI (Searth for ExtraTerrestrial Intelligence) Institute’s newest crowdfunding campaign knows they’re out there, and that so many must be out there that if everyone has E.T.’s on their radar 24/7, they could finally find something that isn’t a false alarm from a telemetry signal that ran into their radio telescope at 3 in the morning. Called “Laser SETI: First-Ever All-Sky All-the-Time-Search,” the project is getting a boost from an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign that is blasting off towards $100,000.

    The things you see on Indiegogo never cease to amaze me.

    While Laser SETI will still need hi-res cameras and optics designed for astronomy if this thing is going to take off, it’s still exponentially more cost effective than sending satellites to every known corner of the universe. We are just microbes in a universe so vast that just about anything could be hiding in places so far away that they haven’t even been reached by satellites or seen by even the most powerful telescopic eyes from Earth or space. It’s also hard to believe that there isn’t anything else crawling around when our universe is 14 billion years old, which is more than enough time for just about anything, intelligent or otherwise, to evolve.

    It's very difficult to imagine that we are alone,” said SETI CEO Bill Diamond for these reasons. “Yet extraterrestrial life still eludes our efforts to find it. Now you have a chance to be a part of the technology that can change that forever."

    SETI assumes that aliens are always on air. Whether they are trying to reach us with superpowered lasers, monster radio transmitters or anything else our Earthling brains might have not even dreamed up yet remains to be seen. There have been previous doubts about extraterrestrial beings anywhere from hundreds to billions of light-years away trying to target a planet they don’t even know exists. The idea may strike you as a kind of reverse X-Files.

    Laser SETI is the first endeavor to defy this thinking "because it's designed to find a very short ping that doesn't stay on all the time — it can detect a laser flash as short as a microsecond, and one that might not repeat for days, weeks, or even longer," as Diamond explained.

    Now watch the video, then take off to the campaign and donate. For science.

    New Study Explains How Some Planets May Never Become Habitable

     
    IN BRIEF
    A new study explains how alien planets might skip straight from being too cold to support life to being too hot, without ever becoming habitable. That could trim the number of planets we should investigate for life.

    This chart shows, on the top row, artist concepts of the seven planets of TRAPPIST-1 with their orbital periods, distances from their star, radii and masses as compared to those of Earth. On the bottom row, the same numbers are displayed for the bodies of our inner solar system: Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars. The TRAPPIST-1 planets orbit their star extremely closely, with periods ranging from 1.5 to only about 20 days. This is much shorter than the period of Mercury, which orbits our sun in about 88 days.

    Jupiter and Major Moons

    TRAPPIST-1 Comparison to Solar System and Jovian Moons

    IN THE ZONE

    Earth’s location in space is perfect: not too close to but not too far from the Sun, it gives our planet the balmy temperature that helps supports life. However, a new study suggests that it might be even more difficult than previously expected to find a celestial body that falls within this ‘Goldilocks zone.’

    The habitable zone of any given star is the area where planets can maintain a temperature that allows liquid water to be found on its surface. Too close to the star, and that water will turn to vapor — too far away, and it’ll turn to ice.

    However, stars like our sun gradually get more luminous over time, which changes the parameters of their habitable zone. This means that icy planets can feasibly reach a point where their conditions are warm enough to support life — but according to a recent study in Nature Geoscience, that’s not always the way the situation will pan out.

    TOO HOT TO HANDLE

    A planet’s ability to support life-sustaining temperatures hinges on at least two factors: the amount of ice on the surface, and the amount of greenhouse gases being released into its atmosphere. Yet many icy planets don’t have the volcanic activity needed to contain any greenhouse gases besides water vapor.

    So this study’s team, led by Jun Yang of Peking University, developed a model that could simulate how the climate of an ice-covered planet with only water vapor in the atmosphere would change over time. The results suggested it would take 10 to 40 percent more energy than the Earth receives from the sun before they began to melt.

    Without ice to reflect incoming heat, this heat-intensive process was often followed by a speedy uptick in temperature that caused the planet’s oceans to boil off. And without water, these worlds wouldn’t be able to support life after all.

    This isn’t necessarily bad news. Thanks to increasingly sharp-eyed instruments, the number of known exoplanets has skyrocketed in the past two decades, from a mere handful in the mid-90s to nearly 2000 today. In February 2014 alone, NASA announced a “planet bonanza” discovery of 715 new planets, found by the Kepler satellite. But identifying which of these distant worlds might be friendly to life is still tricky.

    Scientists are able to infer the atmospheric content of a planet based on the way light passes through it, a process that’s already been used to detect water on a distant Earth-sized planet. However, this method doesn’t tell scientists what else is happening on the planet — such as whether it’s in the runaway, ocean-boiling cycle Yang’s team identified.

    If we’re on the search for a planet that humans can live on, having this information at hand gives us more insight into which worlds are in contention.

    IF YOU THINK INVENTION SECRECY IS A “CONSPIRACY THEORY” YOU’VE JUST BEEN PROVEN WRONG…

    Government secrecy is running rampant in an age where more and more people are demanding transparency. Did you know that the U.S. Government classifies over 500 million pages of documents each year? Justification for the mass classification of information is (apparently) done for the sake of “national security,” but as we know:

    The dangers of excessive and unwarranted concealment of pertinent facts, far outweigh the dangers that are cited to justify them. There is a very grave danger that an announced need for an increased level of security will be seized upon by those anxious to expand its meaning to the very limits of censorship and concealment. That I do not tend to permit, so long as it’s in my control.” – JFK (source)

    If a scholar wanted to research political, historical, scientific, or any other type of archival work, it would prove difficult and limiting seeing that most of their government’s activities are kept a secret. It is truly impossible to access the factual history of their country. The declassification of classified documents (a small portion) does not occur until decades after that information has been concealed, one great example of that is the UFO phenomenon, once believed to be a “conspiracy theory” by the masses before the substantial release of government documents showing otherwise. You can read more about that and access some of those documents here. Evidence is now pointing to the fact that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office is no different.

    The office is supposed to legally protect the inventions of entrepreneurs and companies, some of whom have developed ground breaking technology. Unfortunately, that’s not the case as new documents obtained via the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) reveal how the Patent Office has been using a secret system to withhold the approval of some applications.

    This 50-page document was obtained by Kilpatrick Towsend & Stockton, LLP, who commonly represent major tech companies that include Apple, Google and Twitter (to name a few). You can view that entire document HERE. (1)

    The program delaying patent applications is called the Sensitive Application Warning System (SWAS). Usually, when an application is submitted for a patent approval it requires a couple of examiners who work with the Patent office to go through their process of approval. This process usually takes approximately 1 to 2 years, but  applications that are filed in SAWS must be approved from several people, and can be delayed for a number of years.

    There is no official channel to notify an applicant once their patent is placed in the system, and the Patent Office has denied requests to divulge what applications are on the SAWS list.” (source)

    The documents also indicate areas of technology that might have a patent application placed in the SAWS program – these include smartphones, internet-enabling systems and more. This information is set to be published in an online journal called “Law360” to inform the public. Tech Columnist Alyssa Bereznak at Yahoo News states that most companies are fully aware of this.

    I first came across this recent information in her article, which you can view here, but I felt compelled to add more information.

    As you will see below, there is more information that has surfaced prior to these documents that suggest this type of “invention secrecy” goes far beyond these technologies.

    One great example (out of many) of delayed patent applications comes from Dr. Gerald F. Ross. He filed a patent application for a new invention he had devised to defeat the jamming of electromagnetic transmissions at specified frequencies. It was not until June 17, 2014 (almost 37 years later) that this patent was granted. (2)

    Invention Secrecy Is Still Going Strong

    As great as it is to see new information pertaining to invention secrecy come to light, it’s also important to note (as reported by the Federation of American Scientists; see annotated bibliography) that there were over 5000 inventions that were under secrecy orders at the end of Fiscal Year 2014, which marked the highest number of  secrecy orders in effect since 1994.(3)

    This is all thanks to an act many people are unaware of. It’s called the “Invention Secrecy Act” and it was written up in 1951. Under this act, patent applications on new inventions can be subject to secrecy orders. These orders can restrict their publication if government agencies believe that their disclosure would be harmful to national security.(4)(5)

    As mentioned earlier, “national security” has become an excuse and justification for the classification of a large amount of information on a variety of topics that the public is deliberately kept in the dark about. Apparently, many of these projects and inventions go far above and beyond presidential knowledge.

    It is ironic that the U.S. should be fighting monstrously expensive wars allegedly to bring democracy to those countries, when it itself can no longer claim to be called a democracy when trillions, and I mean thousands of billions of dollars, have been spent on projects which both congress and the commander in chief know nothing about.”  (source) – Paul Hellyer, Former Canadian Defense Minister.

    So what type of technology is under restriction under the Invention Secrecy Act? We don’t really know, but a previous list from 1971 was obtained by researcher Michael Ravnitzky. Most of the technology listed seems to be related to various military applications. You can view that list HERE. (6)

    As Steven Aftergood from the Federation of American Scientists reports:

    The 1971 list indicates that patents for solar photovoltaic generators were subject to review and possible restriction if the photovoltaics were more than 20% efficient. Energy conversion systems were likewise subject to review and possible restriction if they offered conversion efficiencies in “excess of 70-80%.” (source)

    Secrecy is No Secret 

    A couple of years before the Invention Secrecy Act of 1951, the National Security Act was created. As a result, a number of intelligence groups and executive bodies followed. None of these groups had any active congressional oversight. The United States has a history of government agencies existing in secret for years. The National Security Agency (NSA) was founded in 1952, its existence was hidden until the mid 1960’s. Even more secretive is the National Reconnaissance Office, which was founded in 1960 but remained completely secret for 30 years. Along with this secrecy is the information these agencies obtained, and continue to obtain until this day.

    Special Access Programs are another great example of secrecy. From these we have unacknowledged and waived SAPs. These programs do not exist publicly, but they do indeed exist. They are better known as ‘deep black programs.’ A 1997 US Senate report described them as “so sensitive that they are exempt from standard reporting requirements to the Congress.” (7)(8)

    We don’t really hear about black budget programs, or about people who have actually looked into them. However, the topic was discussed in 2010 by Washington Post journalists Dana Priest and William Arkin. Their investigation lasted approximately two years and concluded that America’s classified world has:

    Become so large, so unwieldy and so secretive that no one knows how much money it costs, how many people it employs, how many programs exist within it or exactly how many agencies do the same work.” (9)

    You can read more about the Black Budget in detail HERE.

    Today, it seems to be evidently clear that secrecy has lead to what Dwight Eisenhower warned us about:

    In the council of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence whether sought or unsought, by the military industrial complex. The potential disaster of the rise of misplaced power exists, and will persist. We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes.” (source)

    What Has All This Secrecy Led To?

    The fact that so much information is concealed from the public domain has led to a kind of “breakaway civilization.” A term coined by Richard Dolan.

    Someone, or some groups are “in the know.” This or these groups who have had access to information over many decades that the public hasn’t is no doubt living and perceiving the world in a different way from what the masses do. This has led to a world within worlds, a separate civilization apart of our own who have access to knowledge that we don’t. Who are they? What are they doing? Why are they doing it? What do they know?

    You can read what Richard has to say about it here.

    NASA staat voor Never A Straight Answer. Sergeant-majoor is woest dat de overheid dit voor ons achterhoudt

    In 1964 wisten we al dat er tenminste vier verschillende groepen waren die naar de aarde kwamen, ons in de gaten hielden en die ons bestudeerden.

    Men concludeerde dat ze geen bedreiging vormden omdat ze meerdere keren hadden laten zien dat ze over ongelooflijk geavanceerde technologieën beschikten.

    Als ze vijandig of kwaadaardig waren, zouden we weerloos zijn geweest. Als ze kwade bedoelingen hadden, zou het al lang over zijn geweest voor ons.

    Hoogste niveau

    Dit zijn de woorden van de Amerikaan Robert (Bob) Dean, die 28 jaar in het leger diende en zich opwerkte tot sergeant-majoor eerste klas.

    Tijdens een interview met zender RT sprak de Canadese oud-minister van Defensie Paul Hellyer ook over vier buitenaardse soorten die de aarde al duizenden jaren bezoeken.

    In andere landen wordt eveneens op het hoogste niveau onderzoek gedaan naar dit fenomeen.

    Serieus

    Op de website van de CIA staat een document dat laat zien hoe de spionagedienst informatie verzamelde over een samenwerkingsverband tussen de Sovjet-Unie en China.

    Bijna 20 jaar geleden besloten wetenschappers uit beide landen gezamenlijk onderzoek te doen naar UFO’s.

    Het gaat hier opnieuw om een document waaruit blijkt hoe serieus overheden in het verleden onderzoek hebben gedaan naar dit fenomeen.

    Ufologen uit de twee landen kwamen bijeen in de stad Dalnegorsk. De specialisten wisselden videomateriaal en foto’s uit en werkten aan een programma om incidenten te onderzoeken.

    Never A Straight Answer

    “Dames en heren, mijn overheid, de NASA, wat volgens veel Amerikanen staat voor Never A Straight Answer (nooit een eerlijk antwoord), vernietigde 40 filmrolletjes van het Apolloprogramma – de vlucht naar de maan, de vlucht rond de maan, de maanlandingen en de maanwandelingen,” zei Dean.

    “Ze vernietigden 40 filmrolletjes,” benadrukte hij. “Het gaat hier om duizenden frames waarvan de zogenaamde autoriteiten niet willen dat je ze ziet. Ik ben woest.”

    Who carved the symbols and what were they trying to say?

    Martha HenriquesBy 

    Montoro stela
    The stela of Montoro is carved with dozens of peculiar symbols.Leonardo García Sanjuán and Marta Díaz-Guardamino / Antiquity 2017

    At 1.5m high and 85cm wide, the stela of Montoro is an imposing artefact. It is a stone slab covered in engravings thought to date from the Iron Age. The symbols themselves are all more or less recognisable as letters from extinct languages. But no one can read what the symbols say.

    Archaeologist Leonardo García Sanjuán of the University of Seville began studying the stela after reading a short notice on the discovery published in the Montoro Archaeological Museum newsletter. He could see that there was something unusual about it, and went out to see it with his colleague Marta Díaz-Guardamino at Southampton University in the UK.

    The slab had first been unearthed by a farmer ploughing his field in Montoro in southern Spain in 2002. He dumped it in a heap of other stones at the side of the field and thought nothing more about it. Two years later, a couple of rangers from the regional government's environmental department discovered it and noticed a series of strange markings covering one of its sides.

    The rangers took it to the local museum, where it stayed more or less undisturbed for eight years until García Sanjuán and Díaz-Guardamino came to visit in 2012. They were puzzled to find that the letters – or graphemes – just didn't make any sense.

    "It's rare to find something like this – the inscriptions on this stela cannot be read. There isn't a single script that makes sense of them," García Sanjuán told IBTimes UK.

    The majority of the symbols were easily identifiable, as they had been taken from a range of different languages. On top of this, some were arranged in a circular or spiral pattern while others were carved in no discernible order.

    "They seem to be an assorted collection of graphemes taken from different scripts and put together on this stone," García Sanjuán said.

    Deciphering the indecipherable

    So what does this strange collection of graphemes mean? To answer this, one of the key problems was first finding out how old they were. This could give the archaeologists some clue about the cultural context in which they were written.

    Straight away, the team came up against difficulties. The farmer whose field the stone came from wasn't keen to let the archaeologists start digging up parts of his land to find other contemporary artefacts they could use to estimate the stela's age.

    Montoro stela
    The stone slab stands at 1.5 metres high.Leonardo García Sanjuán and Marta Díaz-Guardamino / Antiquity 2017

    "He had only given us permission to excavate one small pit. We were not very lucky, and did not find any dating material there. So now we have to go by indirect evidence," García Sanjuán said.

    The writing includes elements of a north-eastern palaeo-Hispanic script, Graeco-Iberian script, Proto-Sinaitic and Proto-Canaanite inscriptions, epigraphic South Arabian and Phoenician scripts. People from these cultures were all more or less active in the Iberian Peninsula during the Iron Age. The engravings are estimated to have been made between the 9th and the end of the 3rd century BCE.

    The stone is remarkable for these peculiar inscriptions, said John Koch, a Celtic language and literature researcher at the University of Wales who was not involved in the research.

    "There are a lot of stelae but none of them are like this. You've got these Bronze Age ones that don't have writing on them, and that have pictures of warriors and weapons instead. Then centuries later you've got ones with writing on them - strings of signs in order, sometimes with a line below and above them as well," Koch said.

    "But this is completely different. In terms of arrangement it looks like the old warrior stelae. But it has letters and some look like the later ones that have real writing on them."

    This stone could fill an important gap in the cultural shift from the earlier pictoral carvings to the later written inscriptions. But even so, it's still not clear how the stela came to be made. Thinking about what was going on in Spain in this period led García Sanjuán and Díaz-Guardamino to two potential hypotheses about the its origin.

    Montoro stela
    The stela was found in a field by the Torre de Villaverde.Leonardo García Sanjuán and Marta Díaz-Guardamino / Antiquity 2017

    Illiterate locals or armies on the move?

    The first hypothesis was that the stela was engraved in the early Iron Age, between the 9th and 5th centuries BCE.

    "What we have here perhaps would be local people – who were very probably illiterate people – replicating on a stone the signs that they have seen of or been told about, which they probably did not understand," García Sanjuán said. "This would reflect very early contact between local people and people from outside Iberia – most likely Phoenicians coming from the eastern Mediterranean."

    The other option is that the markings were made a few hundred years after this in the late Iron Age, between the 5th and 3rd centuries BCE. This was a time when the Roman Empire was expanding. The Romans defeated the Carthaginians in the second Punic war, and imperialism began to spread across Iberia.

    "If you think for a moment – in the 3rd century BCE, southern Spain was a very busy part of Europe. The Carthaginians had a very powerful kingdom," García Sanjuán said.

    The family of the well-known Carthaginian general Hannibal – the Barcas – became established in Iberia around this time with grand expansionist strategies. They wanted to control Iberia and to exploit the iron, gold and silver they expected to find there. But in doing so they upset allies of Rome, and Rome declared war on the Carthaginians in retaliation.

    Montoro stela
    The archaeologists excavated a small part of the field where the stela was found - but discovered no helpful artefacts to date the stela.Leonardo García Sanjuán and Marta Díaz-Guardamino / Antiquity 2017

    "At that time there were very big armies with thousands of people marching across Iberia. The Romans and the Carthaginians had many foreigners in their armies who were paid to fight for them."

    These people had very different ethnic backgrounds. The stone could in some sense be a mark of the diversity of some long-forgotten military unit, or it celebrates the diversity of people fighting together in an army.

    The former hypothesis – that of the illiterate locals who were imitating writing – would be the much more exciting one if it is true, said Koch.

    "These people could be trying to write something, but I don't think they succeeded. It looks more like they're getting the idea that these stelae should have letters on them. That's part of the status that writing brings," Koch said. "So this could be a way of competing culturally with literate people. They haven't quite found the way to adapt the writing to their languages yet, but they seem to be trying."

    But at this stage, with no additional evidence to put the stela in context, these hypotheses remain somewhat speculative. Until more artefacts are found, its true origin can only be imagined. But one thing remains certain – the stela is an exceptional find, and it was made in exceptional circumstances.

    "It's a very special stone. Somebody took the trouble of carving it with all these motifs and placing it somewhere. It must have been very important to the people who made it," García Sanjuán said.

    The research is published in the journal Antiquity.
