The Missing Link: Scientists Discover Fish With 'Feet'
The Missing Link: Scientists Discover Fish With 'Feet'
The oceans are so vast that many parts have yet to be explored. Deep down there are creaturesand fish that have not yet been discovered or which are rarely captured on film. This applies to the Mona Canyon located just off the coast of Puerto Rico when the NOAA Okeanos exploration came across a fish with legs that was walking on the ocean floor.
Species of Angler Fish
The researchers found a deep sea fish with the name of the Pink Frogmouth, which is rarely seen, also given the name of the Sea Toad. This is an anglerfish using fins that have been modified and turned into fins allowing the fish to walk around the seafloor. Scientists believe that the fish has been living on the bottom of the sea for so long that the front along with the back fins have adapted into feet so that the fish could get around on the bottom of the sea floor more easily.
The Pink Frogmouth Can Also Swim in the Ocean
A video was captured showing the Pink Frogmouth fish walking along the bottom of the ocean floor and it one of the strangest things to witness. As fish generally swim about in the ocean this fish with its downturned mouth looks almost alien as it shuffles along on the ocean floor. The fish walks using two smallish fins at the back and front. However, it does enjoy the best of both worlds as it also has larger fins situated in the middle of its body allowing it to swim just as any other fish swims around the ocean.
The Pink Frogmouth fish usually lives in a depth range of between 200 and 978 meters. The fish has been spotted living in the Atlantic along with the Mediterranean Oceans where it dines on shrimp. The Pink Frogmouth fish looks like something straight out of a horror movie. It now only needs to develop further to allow it to breathe on land and it could walk right up out of the ocean.
The United States Space Force is a newly proposed military branch that President Donald Trump announced during a meeting of the National Space Council on June 18, 2018. If the proposal is enacted, it will become the sixth armed forces branch, joining the Navy, Army, Marine Corps, Air Force and Coast Guard.
Trump's announcement took many by surprise, especially in the Pentagon. Some saw the sudden proposal as a strategy to compel Congress and the Department of Defense into supporting a military branch focused solely on space. Others saw it as answering the need to address the growing rivalry and presence of China and Russia in space.
"It is not merely enough that we have American presence in space," Trump said during his public proposal. "We must have American dominance in space."
As much as it sounds like the Space Force will be astronaut soldiers wielding blaster rifles, the reality is much more mundane. Rather than deploying soldiers in space, the Space Force will focus on national security and preserving the satellites and vehicles that are dedicated to international communications and observation.
Immediately following Pence's announcement in August, the Pentagon released a report that detailed some of the Department of Defense's immediate actions for creating the Space Force:
Establish a Space Development Agency – This is an agency tasked with developing and testing new and improved national-security capabilities and technology in space.
Establish a Space Operations Force – This force will be a collection of space experts from throughout the military who will provide needed expertise to combat commanders and anyone else throughout the Space Force.
These three components would later be united to become the final Space Force.
Why is a Space Force needed?
Russia and China are the U.S.'s two greatest space competitors and also potential military threats. And both have demonstrated formidable space capabilities.
In 2007, for example, China launched a missile that climbed skyward for 500 miles until it impacted one of the country's own defunct weather satellites, which rained down in thousands of pieces. In a similar unnerving event in 2014, a piece of supposed Russian space junk called Object 2014-E28 turned out to be an autonomous robot of sorts that was capable of docking onto satellites.
During his August 2018 address, Pence said that China was investing in hypersonic missiles capable of evading U.S. detection. And both Russia and China had integrated anti-satellite attacks as part of their wartime protocols.
Given that the U.S. government and military rely heavily on satellites for forecasting weather, collecting high-resolution images for intelligence and directing missiles with GPS satellites, the threat became obvious.
Does something like this already exist?
China, Russia and the United States have military sectors already dedicated to space. Russia revived the Russian Space Forces in 2015 as a branch of the Russian Aerospace Forces. In the same year, China established the People's Liberation Army Strategic Support Force as the space and cyberwarfare branch of the People's Liberation Army.
The U.S. has the Air Force Space Command, which is integrated into the U.S. Air Force. But many have argued that an independent branch should be established to focus exclusively on space. "Whether it's a Space Force or something else, it is absolutely critical to have someone who thinks about this day and night," Terry Virts, a retired NASA astronaut and former Air Force fighter pilot, told SpaceNews.
Representative Mike Rogers, R-Ala., first made such a proposal. He called it the U.S. Space Corps during the 2016 Space Symposium in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
The proposal was eventually included as an amendment to the House of Representatives 2018 National Defense Authorization Act, which spelled out the Department of Defense's budget and policies for the 2018 fiscal year. The House passed the bill with the amendment, but members of the Senate viewed the amendment with skepticism and ultimately vetoed it.
Trump then commandeered the debate in June 2018 and announced the administration would form the U.S. Space Force.
Many details remain uncertain, such as how much a new military branch would cost and whether Congress would ever fund it.
"It's hard to see a scenario where the Space Force doesn't need a bunch of additional money to not only fund the reorganization but also all the new programs and capabilities," Brian Weeden, a space policy expert at Secure World Foundation in Washington, D.C., told Politico.
The White House pushed for Congress to invest an initial $8 billion in national security space systems over the next five years. But creating an entirely new branch of the military is expected to cost much more. A leaked memo from the Air Force in mid-September shows estimates of it requiring as much as $13 billion in its first five years.
Because the program would also draw resources and a necessary 13,000 personnel away from other military branches, some fear it would weaken the U.S. military overall.
The Pentagon, nevertheless, immediately got to work on laying out the proposal. Less than two months later, in early August 2018, Pence announcedthat the new branch would be established as soon as 2020.
Planet Earth: Facts About Its Orbit, Atmosphere & Size
Planet Earth: Facts About Its Orbit, Atmosphere & Size
By Charles Q. Choi, Space.com Contributor
Earth, our home, is the third planet from the sun. It's the only planet known to have an atmosphere containing free oxygen, oceans of water on its surface and, of course, life.
Earth is the fifth largest of the planets in the solar system. It's smaller than the four gas giants —Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune — but larger than the three other rocky planets, Mercury, Mars and Venus.
Earth has a diameter of roughly 8,000 miles (13,000 kilometers) and is round because gravity pulls matter into a ball. But, it's not perfectly round. Earth is really an "oblate spheroid," because its spin causes it to be squashed at its poles and swollen at the equator.
Water covers roughly 71 percent of Earth's surface, and most of that is in the oceans. About a fifth of Earth's atmosphere consists of oxygen, produced by plants. While scientists have been studying our planet for centuries, much has been learned in recent decades by studying pictures of Earth from space.
While Earth orbits the sun, the planet is simultaneously spinning on an imaginary line called an axis that runs from the North Pole to the South Pole. It takes Earth 23.934 hours to complete a rotation on its axis and 365.26 days to complete an orbit around the sun.
Earth's axis of rotation is tilted in relation to the ecliptic plane, an imaginary surface through the planet's orbit around the sun. This means the Northern and Southern hemispheres will sometimes point toward or away from the sun depending on the time of year, and this changes the amount of light the hemispheres receive, resulting in the seasons.
Earth's orbit is not a perfect circle, but rather an oval-shaped ellipse, similar to the orbits of all the other planets. Our planet is a bit closer to the sun in early January and farther away in July, although this variation has a much smaller effect than the heating and cooling caused by the tilt of Earth's axis. Earth happens to lie within the so-called "Goldilocks zone" around the sun, where temperatures are just right to maintain liquid water on our planet's surface.
Statistics about Earth's orbit, according to NASA:
Average distance from the sun: 92,956,050 miles (149,598,262 km)
Perihelion (closest approach to the sun): 91,402,640 miles (147,098,291 km)
Aphelion (farthest distance from the sun): 94,509,460 miles (152,098,233 km)
Length of solar day (single rotation on its axis): 23.934 hours
Length of year (single revolution around the sun): 365.26 days
Equatorial inclination to orbit: 23.4393 degrees
Earth's formation and evolution
Scientists think Earth was formed at roughly the same time as the sun and other planets some 4.6 billion years ago, when the solar system coalesced from a giant, rotating cloud of gas and dust known as the solar nebula. As the nebula collapsed because of its gravity, it spun faster and flattened into a disk. Most of the material was pulled toward the center to form the sun.
"It was thought that because of these asteroids and comets flying around colliding with Earth, conditions on early Earth may have been hellish," Simone Marchi, a planetary scientist at the Southwest Research Institute in Boulder, Colorado, previously told Space.com. But in recent years, new analyses of minerals trapped within ancient microscopic crystals suggests that there was liquid water already present on Earth during its first 500 million years, Marchi said.
Radioactive materials in the rock and increasing pressure deep within the Earth generated enough heat to melt the planet's interior, causing some chemicals to rise to the surface and form water, while others became the gases of the atmosphere. Recent evidence suggests that Earth's crust and oceans may have formed within about 200 million years after the planet took shape.
Earth's core is about 4,400 miles (7,100 km) wide, slightly larger than half the Earth's diameter and about the same size as Mars' diameter. The outermost 1,400 miles (2,250 km) of the core are liquid, while the inner core is solid; it's about four-fifths as big as Earth's moon, at some 1,600 miles (2,600 km) in diameter. The core is responsible for the planet's magnetic field, which helps to deflect harmful charged particles shot from the sun.
Above the core is Earth's mantle, which is about 1,800 miles (2,900 km) thick. The mantle is not completely stiff but can flow slowly. Earth's crust floats on the mantle much as a piece of wood floats on water. The slow motion of rock in the mantle shuffles continents around and causes earthquakes, volcanoes and the formation of mountain ranges.
Above the mantle, Earth has two kinds of crust. The dry land of the continents consists mostly of granite and other light silicate minerals, while the ocean floors are made up mostly of a dark, dense volcanic rock called basalt. Continental crust averages some 25 miles (40 km) thick, although it can be thinner or thicker in some areas. Oceanic crust is usually only about 5 miles (8 km) thick. Water fills in low areas of the basalt crust to form the world's oceans.
Earth gets warmer toward its core. At the bottom of the continental crust, temperatures reach about 1,800 degrees Fahrenheit (1,000 degrees Celsius), increasing about 3 degrees F per mile (1 degree C per km) below the crust. Geologists think the temperature of Earth's outer core is about 6,700 to 7,800 degrees F (3,700 to 4,300 degrees C) and that the inner core may reach 12,600 degrees F (7,000 degrees C) — hotter than the surface of the sun.
Earth's magnetic field is generated by currents flowing in Earth's outer core. The magnetic poles are always on the move, with the magnetic North Poleaccelerating its northward motion to 24 miles (40 km) annually since tracking began in the 1830s. It will likely exit North America and reach Siberia in a matter of decades.
Earth's magnetic field is changing in other ways, too. Globally, the magnetic field has weakened 10 percent since the 19th century, according to NASA. These changes are mild compared to what Earth's magnetic field has done in the past. A few times every million years or so, the field completely flips, with the North and the South poles swapping places. The magnetic field can take anywhere from 100 to 3,000 years to complete the flip.
The strength of Earth's magnetic field decreased by about 90 percent when a field reversal occurred in ancient past, according to Andrew Roberts, a professor at the Australian National University. The drop makes the planet more vulnerable to solar storms and radiation, which can could significantly damage satellites and communication and electrical infrastructure.
"Hopefully, such an event is a long way in the future and we can develop future technologies to avoid huge damage," Roberts said in a statement.
When charged particles from the sun get trapped in Earth's magnetic field, they smash into air molecules above the magnetic poles, causing them to glow. This phenomenon is known as the aurorae, the northern and southern lights.
Earth's atmosphere is roughly 78 percent nitrogen and 21 percent oxygen, with trace amounts of water, argon, carbon dioxide and other gases. Nowhere else in the solar system is there an atmosphere loaded with free oxygen, which is vital to one of the other unique features of Earth: life.
Air surrounds Earth and becomes thinner farther from the surface. Roughly 100 miles (160 km) above Earth, the air is so thin that satellites can zip through the atmosphere with little resistance. Still, traces of atmosphere can be found as high as 370 miles (600 km) above the planet's surface.
The lowest layer of the atmosphere is known as the troposphere, which is constantly in motion and why we have weather. Sunlight heats the planet's surface, causing warm air to rise into the troposphere. This air expands and cools as air pressure decreases, and because this cool air is denser than its surroundings, it then sinks and gets warmed by the Earth again.
Above the troposphere, some 30 miles (48 km) above the Earth's surface, is the stratosphere. The still air of the stratosphere contains the ozone layer, which was created when ultraviolet light caused trios of oxygen atoms to bind together into ozone molecules. Ozone prevents most of the sun's harmful ultraviolet radiation from reaching Earth's surface, where it can damage and mutate life.
Water vapor, carbon dioxide and other gases in the atmosphere trap heat from the sun, warming Earth. Without this so-called "greenhouse effect," Earth would probably be too cold for life to exist, although a runaway greenhouse effect led to the hellish conditions now seen on Venus.
Earth-orbiting satellites have shown that the upper atmosphere actually expands during the day and contracts at night due to heating and cooling.
Oxygen is the most abundant element in rocks in Earth's crust, composing roughly 47 percent of the weight of all rock. The second most abundant element is silicon, at 27 percent, followed by aluminum, at 8 percent; iron, at 5 percent; calcium, at 4 percent; and sodium, potassium and magnesium, at about 2 percent each.
Earth's core consists mostly of iron and nickel and potentially smaller amounts of lighter elements, such as sulfur and oxygen. The mantle is made of iron and magnesium-rich silicate rocks. (The combination of silicon and oxygen is known as silica, and minerals that contain silica are known as silicate minerals.)
Earth's moon is 2,159 miles (3,474 km) wide, about one-fourth of Earth's diameter. Our planet has one moon, while Mercury and Venus have none and all the other planets in our solar system have two or more.
The leading explanation for how Earth's moon formed is that a giant impact knocked the raw ingredients for the moon off the primitive, molten Earth and into orbit. Scientists have suggested that the object that hit the planet had roughly 10 percent the mass of Earth, about the size of Mars.
Life on Earth
Earth is the only planet in the universe known to possess life. The planet boasts several million species of life, living in habitats ranging from the bottom of the deepest ocean to a few miles into the atmosphere. And scientists think far more species remain to be discovered.
Researchers suspect that other candidates for hosting life in our solar system — such as Saturn's moon Titan or Jupiter's moon Europa — could house primitive living creatures. Scientists have yet to precisely nail down exactly how our primitive ancestors first showed up on Earth. One solution suggests that life first evolved on the nearby planet Mars, once a habitable planet, then traveled to Earth on meteorites hurled from the Red Planet by impacts from other space rocks.
"It's lucky that we ended up here, nevertheless, as certainly Earth has been the better of the two planets for sustaining life," biochemist Steven Benner, of the Westheimer Institute for Science and Technology in Florida, told Space.com. "If our hypothetical Martian ancestors had remained on Mars, there might not have been a story to tell."
Mysterious moon swirls have finally been explained
Mysterious moon swirls have finally been explained
"This was the final piece in the puzzle of understanding the magnetism that underlies these lunar swirls."
by Chelsea Gohd, Space.com
Light and dark markings swirl over the moon, looking like cream swirled into coffee or clouds against a slate gray sky. These lunar swirls may result from ancient, magnetic lava just below the moon's surface, according to one new study.
A joint study between researchers at Rutgers University and the University of California, Berkeley, pointed to the moon'sinternally generated magnetic fieldand past volcanic activity to explain the lunar swirls.
Researchers have known for some time that lunar swirls share space with localized magnetic fields and that when those fields deflect particles from solar wind, parts of the moon's surface weather more slowly than other parts. "But the cause of those magnetic fields, and thus of the swirls themselves, had long been a mystery," Sonia Tikoo, co-author of the study and a researcher at Rutgers University-New Brunswick's Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences, said in a statement. "To solve it, we had to find out what kind of geological feature could produce these magnetic fields — and why their magnetism is so powerful."
The researchers developed mathematical models for these localized fields, or "geological magnets" as they're described in the statement. These models showed that each lunar swirl must exist above a narrow, magnetic object located just below the lunar surface.
Even stranger, researchers think that these subsurface magnetic objects are ancient, long, narrow lava tubes formed by flowing lava or lava dikes, which are vertical sheets of magma in the crust of a moon or planet. Past experiments have shown that, when heated above 1,112 degrees Fahrenheit (600 degrees Celsius) in a zero-oxygen environment, certain minerals in moon rocks break down and release metallic iron, making the rocks extremely magnetic.
So, when the moon was erupting lava over 3 billion years ago, these magnetic lava tubes or lava dikes were likely created and became highly magnetic as they cooled down, according to the statement.
"No one had thought about this reaction in terms of explaining these unusually strong magnetic features on the moon," Tikoo said in the statement, referring to the lava becoming magnetic moon rock under the surface and causing lunar swirls. "This was the final piece in the puzzle of understanding the magnetism that underlies these lunar swirls."
'Definitely Not Aliens': These Photos of SpaceX's Night Rocket Launch and Landing Are Amazing!
'Definitely Not Aliens': These Photos of SpaceX's Night Rocket Launch and Landing Are Amazing!
By Mike Wall, Space.com Senior Writer
All rocket launches are spectacular, but SpaceX took things to another level over the weekend.
On Sunday night (Oct. 7), a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket successfully launched the SAOCOM 1A Earth-observation satellite from Vandenberg Air Force Base on California's Central Coast. And the two-stage booster's first stage landed back at Vandenberg less than 8 minutes after liftoff, pulling off SpaceX's first-ever terra-firma touchdown on California soil.
"Nope, definitely not aliens. What you're looking at is the first launch and landing of the @SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket on the West Coast. The rocket took off from Vandenberg Air Force Base at 7:21 p.m. and landed safely back on Earth," Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti tweeted Sunday night, along with an amazing photo of the Falcon 9 cloud hanging over the city.
Another photo posted by Garcetti captured the pulses of the first stage's small reaction-control thrusters, which etched a big Wi-Fi symbol in the sky. Those thrusters were firing to keep the booster on course for its historic touchdown. (SpaceX has now pulled off 30 first-stage landings, but all the previous ones had occurred at Florida's Cape Canaveral Air Force Station or on robotic "drone ships" stationed in the Atlantic or Pacific oceans.)
Astrophotographer Sean Parker viewed the launch from Joshua Tree National Park in southeastern California and was suitably excited by the sky show.
"That was pretty FN awesome, @elonmusk @SpaceX #falcon9," Parker tweeted yesterday (Oct. 8), along with a photo of himself exulting in the desert beneath the glowing cloud.
And then there are the close-up views of the launch and landing, which SpaceX snapped. These photos are spectacular in a different way, highlighting power and precision rather than abstract and ephemeral beauty. But they are spectacular nonetheless.
SAOCOM 1A, by the way, was developed by Argentina's national space agency. The satellite will observe Earth in radar light from its perch about 385 miles (620 kilometers) above the planet, primarily to measure soil-moisture levels. This information will aid predictions of crop yields and also help planners and emergency-management officials monitor disasters such as floods and fires.
SAOCOM 1A has a twin, SAOCOM 1B, which will make similar observations. SAOCOM 1B will also launch aboard a Falcon 9, perhaps as early as next year.
Mike Wall's book about the search for alien life, "Out There," will be published on Nov. 13. Follow him on Twitter @michaeldwall.
Why Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Are A National Security Risk And Also An Opportunity For Progress
Why Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Are A National Security Risk And Also An Opportunity For Progress
A career’s worth of intelligence work for the U.S. Government has taught me one key lesson: national security is a lot like playing a game of chess. You have to anticipate your opponent’s every move in order to remain one step ahead.
Disclosing your strategy will be used against you. But if you recognize certain opportunities, you can win the match.
When I headed the government’s highly sensitive Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP), I worked with a team to assess whether a particular chess piece — in this case in the form of an unfamiliar aerial technology — was a threat to our side of the chess board.
If it was, we had to know how to counter it.
Since the Government views Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP) as a potential national security issue, they’re secretive by necessity. They don’t want to reveal any information to a potential enemy.
But there are risks to keeping that information classified.
Say the person who first learned how to harness fire never shared it with the next generation, or the person who invented the telescope threw it away when he was done using it. What if the creator of the wheel decided it was too labor intensive for others to build and decided, “Forget it”?
As a species, we’re meant to evolve. And we needed those advancements to get to where we are today. Reports of strange crafts with seemingly inexplicable properties have been circulating within the U.S. Government for at least 70 years, which suggests it isn’t going away. There is “something out there.”
Declassifying certain information about UAP and sharing it with the public could lead to new technological discoveries, new forms of medical research, and a broader view of how humanity understands reality.
A government must assume anything is a threat until it has been proven otherwise.
When determining whether an unknown entity is friend or foe, the U.S. Government looks at factors including capabilities, intentions, vulnerabilities, and exploitability. A close look at these factors reveals just how little UAPs are understood.
Advancements in our understanding of physics at the quantum level have helped shed faint light on the potential science behind UAPs. But these advancements have also shown us that UAPs have superior technical knowledge as well. If these capabilities fell into the hands of a foreign adversary, it would be a decisive game-changer.
Likewise, the intentions of UAPs haven’t been made clear to us at this point. There could be a number of reasons for their presence, ranging from peaceful curiosity to a probe for battlespace preparation. The possibilities are numerous.
UAP vulnerabilities, however, remain a complete mystery. Some have hypothesized that there’s a correlation between UAPs and our nuclear capabilities, while others have suggested that nuclear-generated electromagnetic pulses are a potential weakness.
Regardless, we still don’t really know what vulnerabilities UAPs might have short of speculation. Right now, it’s anyone’s guess.
From a national security perspective, exploitation is the holy grail of endeavors. It’s critical to determine whether UAP technology could be reverse-engineered and used to our benefit, but we can’t exploit such technology unless we first understand it.
When it comes to UAPs, the U.S. knows less than it should, and perhaps much less than our adversaries.
The potential rewards outweigh the risks.
There is always a risk involved when it comes to communicating national security issues to the public. But it’s subjective. The significance of that risk depends on who you ask.
If you ask a military leader, for example, they would say government secrecy about advanced aerospace phenomena is crucial because you want to avoid broadcasting your capabilities and intentions to your potential enemy.
A politician would view UAPs completely differently. They may ask, “Is this something potential voters need to know, or will concealing it cause my constituents to lose faith in me? How does this discussion affect the voters and my ability to represent them?”
A religious figure, on the other hand, would likely be more concerned with the religious and philosophical implications UAPs might have on his or her faith.
There are countless examples throughout history of individuals challenging the prevailing systems of power with radical scientific ideas.
When Galileo told the church hundreds of years ago that Earth was not the center of the solar system, for example, they nearly killed him for it.
As someone without a political or religious agenda, I’m free to say the rewards outweigh the risks in this situation. For example, in December 2017 our team at To The Stars Academy of Arts & Science helped release U.S. military footage of UAPs. No government imploded, no religion dissolved.
Like Galileo, our mission is simple. Collect and disseminate the truth about the unknown. As long as the risks don’t compromise national security, the rewards can benefit all.
Scientific truths help push society forward.
At this point, there’s no question about whether UAPs are out there — they are. People can choose to either continue to live with their heads buried in the sand, or they can take a proactive approach to the phenomenon.
Centuries ago, when mankind first stood on the shores of a beach and contemplated sailing across the horizon, the chorus shouted, “You’re crazy! You’re going to fall off the Earth! There are sea monsters!”
But now, in the 21st century, people travel across oceans every day. What our ancestors thought were sea monsters are great white sharks, blue whales, and giant squid. It turns out that they’re just another part of our natural environment.
Once people committed to discovering the truth for themselves, it was no longer mystical, it was just nature.
But because government processes demand secrecy when it comes to classified information, false knowledge about UAPs spreads rapidly. Secrecy empowers people selling their snake oil and YouTubers profit from peddling their ill-informed narratives about UFOs. Soon people start believing Elvis lives on the mothership — just as they once believed you could fall off the edge of the Earth.
The more knowledge people have, the better they will be able to master their own destinies, and not be held hostage to the monsters of their imaginations.
What if we actually do inhabit a Universe where life, at least complex life is unbelievably rare. So rare that in the immense dark fathoms of deep time, with near infinite real estate, intelligent life arose exactly once. Us. There is no pantheon of intergalactic minds. “We’re first” is one of the three classes of answers to the Fermi Paradox, the other two being “we’re rare” and “we’re fucked.”
Few scientists I’ve spoken to take “we’re first” answers seriously. It seems statistically unlikely; the Galaxy is filled with planets very much like ours orbiting stars very much like ours, and this planet is actually about two billion years younger than average in our galaxy, giving plenty of other places a considerable head start on developing life.
I tend to agree with that understanding but what if? What if it is not true.
What if we are the first? The first (and so oldest) aliens, the first in the time stream who will time travel or the first in the universe who will discover interstellar travel. This would explain why there have not been visitors from the future because we are the very first to invent the time machine and do that. I love author Larry Niven’s thoughts on this: If time travel is possible, the universe will keep being changed (by time-travellers) until a state is reached where time travel is never invented. That universe will not change. And we’re living in it.
It would also explain why we haven’t seen aliens, maybe it’s because WE are the first “aliens” to travel interstellar and colonize the galaxy, only to discover other species who are just a couple million or a couple of thousand years behind us.
I think people (scientists are just people who know science) tend to dismiss the “we’re first” position too easily because it seems born out of hubris, wishful thinking, dreams of exceptionalism, or religious nonsense.
I can see a more plausible scenario, goes like this:
Resources needed to sustain a growing population are always limited to the planet the species is on. Space exploration is great, but it will not produce the additional water, air, carbon dioxide or space needed to grow.
Technology consumes resources, as does population growth.
Societies like ours that are dedicated to growth and consumption eventually deplete their resources and vanish. That kind of conscious, then, might well be deemed an aberration, cosmically speaking.
That tendency is clearly due to a particular kind of “consciousness” that humans have evolved. But rather than being an unequivocally good thing, that kind of consciousness may ultimately be self-defeating.
Societies that thrive are those that learn to live in a mildly-adjusted “harmony” with nature–or homeostasis, really–where they are not taking more from the environment than they are giving back.
A population that is living in that manner (whether consciously, as we know of consciousness), or in a more automatic way, like other species on this planet) do not (or unable to) do much in the way of space exploration or technology development–and in any case they are liable to be limited to a relatively small area, given the size of the universe.
So there are likely to be a relatively large number of planets containing life that have never ventured out looking for others.
Of those that have ventured out, their “visitation possibilities” are extremely limited.
Any such visitation would probably be limited to say, a probe containing automated-interaction systems of some kind. The best design would probably limit the probe’s life to 1,000 years, at most. (Even were it totally self-sustaining, jungle overgrowth, earthquakes, and other natural disasters would inevitably overtake it, in time.) Or it might touch down, stay a few years, and then move on. Either way, any such contact would be fleeting and ephemeral, recorded only in myth and legend.
Any records of such contact would be irretrievably lost by a species such as ours, with the kind of consciousness that goes around burning each other’s libraries on the theory that if what they say is in our religious texts, they’re redundant, and if not, they’re heretical.
But let’s consider the alternatives. If intelligence is common in the Universe, we would have seen signs. Even with interstellar distances what they are, some narcissistic and evangelical civilization would have sent, at the very least, unmanned probes to other stars to bring knowledge of their existence and/or spread their knowledge and principles. There’s no reasonable counter-argument; even if most civilizations destroy themselves before they reach that stage, it is hugely unlikely that all would. Even if most civilizations prefer navel-gazing, it is hugely unlikely that all would.
So intelligence is not common (the only other possibility is that we are under some sort of pointless quarantine). It is really not hard to believe this rarity. It took more than a billion years since life evolved for intelligence to arise. Our Galaxy has roughly 100,000,000,000 stars. If only 1 in 1,000 has planets with conditions to make life possible, and life only starts in 1 out of 1,000 potential incubators, and intelligence only arises in 1 out of 1,000 cases where life starts, well, that makes 100 intelligent civilizations arising in the Galaxy at some point. Say the propensity to self-destruct or navel-gaze accounts for 95% of them (not that unlikely)–now it’s not that hard to begin that of the remaining handful we may be either the first or far enough away for expanding probes of the others to not have reached us.
What about the other 100,000,000,000 galaxies? Here, distances are so immense that almost certainly nobody would attempt to travel or communicate. We can’t know if we’re first. We know we’re rare. So if we self-destruct, it will be a real pity…
Bottom line: The probability that is life out there is enormous. That probability that it evolved technology (and still exists) is very much smaller. The probability that they are within hailing distance is smaller yet. The probability that any such “hailing” would be recognized, and then remembered, is smaller still.
How many times a day do you see a man walking his dog or a friend posting pictures of their cat? why would this be any different for extraterrestrials? There are other types of alien creature that may have been brought to or accompanied aliens on their visits to our planet.
In the 1600s, western astronomers were just emerging from centuries of medieval thought, when the heavens were thought to be unchanging. You can imagine their astonishment when – in July of 1670, in what had been a blank, dark sky – some observers witnessed a bright pinprick of light that appeared, faded, reappeared, and then disappeared entirely from view. At that time, astronomers called such an event a nova or new star. This one was located in front of the constellation Cygnus the Swan and so received the name Nova sub Capite Cygni (a New Star below the Head of the Swan). Modern astronomers have learned it wasn’t a new star. It wasn’t even a spectacular collision of two main-sequence stars, as announced in 2015. Instead, using data from the ALMA telescope in Chile, astronomers now believe the event was a collision between an aging white dwarf star and a brown dwarf (star with too little mass to ignite thermonuclear fusion and thereby shine as most stars do).
The new work is based on observations with the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) in northern Chile. The astronomers studied the debris from this explosion, which takes the form of dual rings of dust and gas resembling an hourglass with a compact central object (see image at top). Sumner Starrfield of Arizona State University is a co-author on a paper published in the peer-reviewed journal Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society. He said in a statement:
It now seems what was observed centuries ago was not what we would today describe as a classic ‘nova.’ Instead, it was the merger of two stellar objects, a white dwarf and a brown dwarf. When these two objects collided, they spilled out a cocktail of molecules and unusual isotopes, which gave us new insights into the nature of this object.
How did they conclude that the collision was between a white dwarf and a brown dwarf, and not two main-sequence stars, as had been reported earlier? They did it by studying the light from two more-distant stars, shining behind the the dusty remains of the merger. These studies let the astronomers detect the telltale signature of the element lithium, which is easily destroyed in the interior of a main sequence star, but not inside a brown dwarf. Astronomer Stewart Eyres of the University of South Wales (@astrostewey on Twitter) and lead author on the paper explained:
The presence of lithium, together with unusual isotopic ratios of the elements carbon, nitrogen and oxygen point to material from a brown dwarf star being dumped on the surface of a white dwarf. The thermonuclear ‘burning’ and an eruption of this material resulted in the hourglass we see today.
According to the researchers, the white dwarf would have been about 10 times more massive than the brown dwarf, though much smaller in size. As the brown dwarf spiraled inward, intense tidal forces exerted by the white dwarf would have ripped it apart. Starrfield remarked:
This is the first time such an event has been conclusively identified.
The constellation Cygnus the Swan, with Vulpecula.
Bottom line: In 1670, skywatchers saw a nova, a star that appeared where none had been before. Today’s astronomers have learned it was a collision between an aging white dwarf star, and less massive brown dwarf.
Alien Human Hybrids are Amongst Us (Richard Dolan Live)
Alien Human Hybrids are Amongst Us (Richard Dolan Live)
Ok this is Richard Dolan speaking live on his youtube channel - he is a well respected UFO researcher
My thoughts - he is right, aliens hybrids are now living amongst us, he speaks at one point about a train carriage filled with mind reading alien human hybrids, the freaky bit for me is this took place just a few miles from where I live.
As I scour the virtual world for new information on UFOlogy I usually find much of the same. Same stories retold in ever increasing lunacy. So many people claim to know so many things in which they can not know. I see that more often than not people’s imagination gets the better of them. “Gets the better of them” is a polite way to say that their imagination beats them like they owe it money. So many people, in so many places, believe some strongly delusional stuff. Yes… I am looking at you, Stephen Bassett. I fart in your general direction Dr Steven Greer.
If even only 1/10th of one percent of accounts in UFOlogy have some merit beyond delusion and self-interest, there would still be a myriad of alleged craft with varying occupants zipping around our atmosphere. I am a UFO experiencer myself (see my previous writings). I know that something very real and quantifiable is happening to a vast many people. But I do not have the foggiest clue as to who, where, why, and what I and my family saw that fateful afternoon. I would really like to know, as would a billion people would I am sure.
But the big dirty truth is that no one knows who they are. I can say that with a reasonably high sense of certainty.
Spend any amount of time in the waters of mainstream UFOlogy and you will contract the digital equivalent of Malaria. You will have been infected with parasites, heavy nausea, cold chills, and explosive disrupted bowel movements. At least your mind will feel like that. So much nonsense, so many clicks, so little thought. I have seen claims of dozens of different aliens visiting our pale blue dot. Grays, Nordics, Reptilians, and Blue avians for an example short list. There are hundreds of other less popular ones as well. All English language understanding bipedal humanoid aliens. One alien that looks like us is beating insurmountable odds. Parallel evolution is so unlikely to ever occur. It may in a cosmic blue moon occur but for it to happen dozens of times in our little corner of infinity is impossible. Not improbable but outright impossible. Not everything is possible, the Universe has laws that itself follows most of the time.
How can all these aliens be coming to Earth on such a regular timetable and that we do not have any credible evidence to support it? The easy answer is that they are not. All these volumes of alleged aliens mingling on Earth are just fantasy. Not even a good fantasy. This could change in the light of credible verifiable evidence. Anything, a single cell or material scraping from extraterrestrial materials biological or otherwise would be nice. No real evidence has ever come forward that could withstand even the most tertiary scientific examination. There have been many hoaxes in bygone days, and even more ongoing today. Without any evidence, there is no reason to believe any of it.
Several governments have opened up their versions of Area 51 and have released their UFO files. Thousands and thousands of reports of sightings have been released to a fevered UFOlogy community. Many very good descriptions of encounters but not a single word on the origins of these silent thieves in the night. Not one word! There is only one way to interpret that. They do not know. If they knew they would tell us. Why wouldn’t they? It would mean absolutely nothing to most people. Knowing that they come from a star system 89658 light years away, tells us nothing useful. Not even something like that has ever been uttered.
The only time you hear of any explanation of sourcing is from the lunatic fringe. Nothing has ever been uttered by a reputable source… Ever! Not surprising when you really think about it. No one that could possibly know anything has ever uttered one syllable of useful data to help us suss out the source of the UFO enigma.
I am fascinated by the quality of good reports that the gifted UFO researchers such as Paul Dean have deduced and compiled. Some very interesting government documents exist that shed light on the cover-up of information they have waged on us for nearly 60 years.
All those documents are great but they do not hold my interest very long. I already know they are real and exist in our skies. No need to convince me of that. I have the luxury of knowing. None of the big questions is being answered. I believe they can not possibly be answered. At least not yet in our intellectual evolution.
There would be no way for the extraterrestrials to tell us anything of any substance. When two different life forms meet and have no common genetic heritage don’t expect much informative information exchange. A true alien is not going to understand us and we certainly will not understand them. We would have zero things in common. We could sit across a table from them for a year and never get past “My name is Trevor… what is yours?”. A real-life encounter with aliens will be stranger and more baffling than we can imagine. Humans can not even have a meaning conversation with any other creatures besides fellow homo sapiens. We can’t have a good conversation with anything on earth except with ourselves. All those life forms have a common genetic evolutionary heritage with us. We evolved on the same planet, with the same sun, and same moon. We have a lot of things in common with all life forms on Earth and that provides zero help. We would never understand a truly alien intelligence. End of story. Without a galactic “Rosetta Stone” we are hopelessly lost in translation.
Even if we squeezed into a parallel Universe where we could understand each other. How can they reference infinity in a form we can fathom. When we sent Voyager 1 probe out of Earth orbit and shot it into deep space we attached a gold plaque. It contained a graphic representation of pulsars in our vicinity. They provided a pulsar map that has directions to find Earth in the vast blackness. A pulsar map is nice but won’t work if you are too far away. This kind of map is only at best good within our own galaxy. Only works in our backyard.
How could an alien tell us or give us coordinates we could understand without any common language or mutual understanding on how distances and time work. If they are any substantial distance from Earth we will not see anything in common. We may not be able to gather the data due to it being further away then we can usably use in any definition. It possibly is going to be impossible to get any meaningful location information ever. The Universe is a big place and our map is woefully incomplete.
I propose that the source of these visitors does not ultimately matter. It is more important to try to assess intention and purpose. Those two are also more than likely beyond our understanding for the same reasons.
I would not worry about them too much. They are not blasting aeroplanes out of the sky or melting the Presidents face like in Mars Attacks (Unless they are waiting for Trump to win…then I say go for it). I would hypothesize that they are here just for observation and fact gathering. We could be one hell of a strange sociological experiment for some intelligence somewhere. They have been here a long time and we are still here. To our Earthbound brains, we will see gross indifference with the same eyes as we see hostility. Is grave indifference what we are experiencing in UFOlogy? Almost like a scientific detachment… Hmmm.
Edward Leedskalnin uit Litouwen zou in de jaren twintig op 26-jarige leeftijd naar Florida zijn verkast. Het enige probleem was dat hij geen huis, geen geld en geen hulp had.
Door de jaren heen bouwde hij in zijn eentje een gigantisch landgoed, zonder gereedschap. Sommige stenen waar Coral Castle (foto) uit bestaat wegen tot wel 27 ton.
De stenen passen perfect in elkaar en bevatten geen cement. Hoe heeft Edward dit voor elkaar gespeeld?
5. Medicijnwiel Bighorn, Wyoming
In Lovell in Wyoming hebben indianen een steencirkel gemaakt die werd gebruikt om astronomische gebeurtenissen te voorspellen, schrijft Atlas Obscura.
De 24 meter grote steencirkel lijkt op een wiel en bevindt zich bovenop Medicine Mountain, die het grootste deel van het jaar bedekt is met sneeuw.
Het bouwwerk wordt tot op de dag van vandaag gebruikt door de indianen en anderen om de zomerzonnewende te voorspellen.
6. Oregon Vortex, Oregon
De Oregon Vortex trekt veel toeristen omdat het daar lijkt alsof je in enkele seconden tijd groter en kleiner kunt worden.
Wetenschappers denken dat deze hotspot een soort draaikolk is bestaande uit magnetische energie, die ervoor zorgt dat het lijkt alsof je groter wordt als je richting het noorden loopt en kleiner als je naar het zuiden loopt, aldus Oregon Live.
7. Georgia Guidestones, Georgia
In Elberton County in Georgia staan de enorme Georgia Guidestones, die ook doen denken aan Stonehenge.
Het zijn enorme granieten zuilen die fungeren als een astronomische kalender.
Het mysterieuze stenen monument, dat gebouwd is in 1979, bevat 10 richtlijnen om de aarde en samenleving opnieuw in te richten in het geval van een apocalyps.
8. Roswell, New Mexico
In juli 1947 zou bij het plaatsje Roswell in New Mexico een UFO zijn gecrasht. Die zomer schreef de Roswell Daily Record dat er een vliegende schotel was geborgen en werd bewaard op een ranch.
Ook de Roswell Army Air Field sprak in een persverklaring van een ‘vliegende schijf’, schreef The Week.
Later werd het verhaal aangepast en beweerde men dat er een weerballon was gecrasht. Volgens complottheoretici is dit één van de voorbeelden dat de Amerikaanse overheid buitenaardse activiteit in de doofpot stopt.
9. Mystery Hill, New Hampshire
Er is een plek in Amerika die ook wel ‘Amerika’s Stonehenge’ wordt genoemd. Op Mystery Hill in New Hampshire staan stenen muren die 4000 jaar oud zouden zijn.
Sommigen claimen dat ze gebouwd zijn door de indianen, terwijl anderen zeggen dat ze zijn achtergelaten door een groep Ierse monniken.
Niemand weet hoe de stenen daar zijn gekomen.
10. Sedona-vortexen, Arizona
In Sedona zouden zich plekken bevinden waar de elektromagnetische energieën van de aarde elkaar kruisen. Deze plekken worden ook wel vortexen of leylijnen genoemd.
Er zijn verschillende plekken aangewezen als hotspots, waarvan Airport Mesa, Cathedral Rock, Bell Rock en Boynton Canyon de populairste zijn.
Gedacht wordt dat het plekken zijn waar intense energie de aarde binnenkomt en verlaat, bericht Visit Sedona.
Over the last few years there have been a spate of reports of unexplained balls of ice falling from cloudless skies, several of which have impacted dangerously close to homes and unsuspecting individuals on the ground. While the prevailing theory seems to be that these mysterious icy meteorites form on the exterior of aircraft overhead, cases have been reported in areas well outside of flight paths – not to mention the fact that reports of these icy deathtraps pre-date the advent of aviation.
A Spanish megacryometeor from 2007.
In the meteorological world, these unexplained balls of ice are known as megacryometeors and have been documented by only a few scientific studies. However, due their rarity, unpredictability, and ephemeral nature, evidence is scant. This week, another incident of a falling megacryometeor adds to the mystery surrounding this icy apparitions and nearly killed an Illinois man. What is causing these fearsome frozen phenomena to fall?
The latest incident occurred in Liberty Township, a small town in rural western Illinois. Dennis Nover was walking his dogs around 6:00 p.m. under clear skies when he heard a “whooshing” sound disturb the air nearby. Immediately after, Nover heard and felt a thud so powerful it reportedly shook his neighbor’s house. “It sounded like a whoosh. I just thought it was the wind in the trees. If that thing had hit me, it would have taken my head off,” Nover told the Chesterton Tribune, adding that his dogs started barking at the object after impact.
Dogs know high strangeness when they see it.
Nover inspected the debris and found a basketball-sized chunk of clear ice lodged in a two-feet-deep crater in his yard. Nover took a sample of the meteor to the Department of Meteorology at nearby Valparaiso University, but researchers there have yet to find any conclusive indicators of where the ice came from. Had it been from an aircraft’s wastewater system, it would have been polluted and or blue from disinfectant; this sample is perfectly clear.
This case adds to the growing body of evidence surrounding these mysterious megacryometeors. While some sort of unknown meteorological phenomenon might be to blame, there aren’t any currently known processes by which atmospheric ice could accumulate in such large masses. The best guess is that these icy projectiles are falling from the exterior of aircraft, but that doesn’t account for the incidents recorded before commercial aviation nor can it explain the recent spike in these mysterious occurrences.
A similar close call was caught on CCTV in London earlier this year.
That is, unless there are more planes flying at high altitude overhead that we don’t know about. With so much unexplained activity going on in the skies or in space lately, there’s no telling what could be causing these megacryometeors.
What’s going on? NASA’s Chandra and Hubble Space Telescopes went into Safe Mode
What’s going on? NASA’s Chandra and Hubble Space Telescopes went into Safe Mode
Remember: At first Sunspot Solar Observatory went down, followed up with the temporarily shut down of the live cams of 6 more observatories.
The Soyuz mission launch failure this week, next the Hubble Telescope goes offline and now the Candra x-ray telescope goes offline.
Besides NASA already has lost contact with the Opportunity Mars Rover and they have a big issue with a data transmission with the Curiosity Mars Rover mainly due to a massive sandstorm on the planet Mars.
According to a news report NASA said that the Hubble Space Telescope has entered safe mode after a gyroscope failure, the agency's Chandra X-ray Observatory has now gone into a similar protective state.
NASA announced the issue Friday, though it happened on Wednesday. When Chandra enters safe mode, it swaps over to hardware backup units, orients its solar panels to gather maximum sunlight and points its mirrors away from the sun.
Instruments go into safe mode to protect themselves during hardware or software failures or glitches, leaving only essential survival systems operating. The space agency is now investigating the cause of the safe-mode transition.
Chandra is designed to make X-ray observations of distant space features, including quasars, supernovas and black holes. It's part of NASA's Great Observatories program, which includes Hubble and the Spitzer Space Telescope.
It is highly unusual that both NASA’s craft are going into safe mode within days and with so many incidents happened the past month it can no longer be a coincidence.
There is something serious going on in space and it seems they do not want us to see.
One year ago this month, To The Stars Academy of Arts & Science launched. The public benefit corporation was founded by Tom DeLonge, the former co-lead vocalist of blink-182 and the current lead guitarist and vocalist of Angels & Airwaves. The corporation is divided into three divisions: aerospace, entertainment, and science. Delonge originally became interested in all things otherworldly while doing research for a series of graphic novels. During a four-hour discussion with several former government officials at the launch of the corporation, he confirmed that UFOs are real.
No, that does not mean that aliens will suddenly invade our ears and switch bodies. An “unidentified flying object” is a vague term; it could mean any number of things, not all of them alien. Given the technology we have, from heat-sensing to enhanced images to metal detection, it’s amazing that anything is unidentifiable anymore.
It Doesn’t Get Much More Official Than This Guy
Luis Elizondo worked for the Department of Defense. He is the former director of programs to investigate unidentified aerial threats and headed the Advanced Aerospace Threats Program. The AATP formed in 2007 with a $22 million budget. The budget may sound big, but in context, it was small enough to go unnoticed by the public and unacknowledged by the government.
The AATP only lasted for five years when funding ran out. Elements of the program remain classified and many speculate that the program may still exist in some capacity. This is basically the plot to Men in Black and we’re obsessed.
“We may not be alone,” Elizondo said publicly this time last year.

Who Killed UFO Sightings?
The number of UFO sightings drastically rose, then declined, over the past 28 years. The National UFO Reporting Center reported only 315 UFO sightings in 1990, but by 1998, the number spiked to 2,000 UFO sightings. The number went up to 4,000 for 2006 and peaked at 8,670 in 2014. It has since gone down drastically, to only 1,329 at the end of June 2018.
There’s a lot to unpack here. What made the UFO sightings go up in the ’90s? Popular films like E.T. and the Alienfranchise? Aging Baby Boomers? (Those who report UFOs are more likely to be elderly.) What’s behind the decline? Millennials killing everything?
Perhaps the advent of cell phones can explain the decline in UFO sightings. According to the Pew Research Center, 90 percent of American adults owned cell phones in 2014. Only 55 percent owned smartphones. Compare that to 2018, when 95 percent of Americans own cellphones and over 75 percent own smartphones. Are we too engrossed with our screens to look up at the sky? Or are UFOs impossible to see due to poor air quality?

Now that Tom DeLonge is helping legitimize UFOs, perhaps more research will follow. To The Stars Academy has already released some videos of UFOs. They claim it’s only the beginning. Who knows how much is already known, or how much out there will be forever unknown. These efforts will continue to seek out the truth, whatever it is, but also to discover new technologies, materials, and energy sources.
The universe is huge. This is comforting and also terrifying. Even if no further information is found, the fact that UFOs have been documented is major news. Up until now, the U.S. government has denied all accounts. Going forward, we’re prepared for a number of scenarios: Independence Day, To Serve Man, Mars Attacks!, or even Star Trek. Whatever happens, keep looking up. You don’t want to miss it because your nose is buried in your phone.

Location of sighting:Mongolia Source: MUFON This UFO made a remarkable appearance over Mongolia this week. The governments of the region will probably claim its a rocket or fireworks or swamp gas, but we its a UFO. Watch the video and see how this amazing craft deliberately makes a trail that glows so that the humans below will see it. This is how alien are doing disclosure, little by little till we are no longer surprised or scared. Scott C. Waring Eyewitness states:
At around 19:00 on October 11th, UFOs appeared in the sky of Hohhot, Inner Mongolia. Many onlookers took out their mobile phones and called them "ufo." It is reported that the object appeared in the sky in Beijing, Tianjin, Hebei, Shanxi and other places during the same period, and it has appeared for the second time.

This is no joke. Unidentified flying objects (UFOs) – objetos voladores no identificados (ovnis) in Spanish – apparently have a flight route established in Costa Rica and use it often, this according to Alejandro Sáenz, an amateur ufologist who has often seen objects in the sky and his wife, Cindy Picado, who regularly observe and photograph the flying objects from their home located in San Isidro de Heredia
Alejandro Sáenz and his wife, Cindy Picado, say they have taken photos and videos of many UFOs in Costa Rica
Sáenz, an architect by profession, says he records his sightings in photos and videos of the peaks of some mountains used by the aliens ships as orientation guides, routes, which according to him, intensify in the month of September, the month with more sightings of the usual.
“They emerge from the Barva volcano, from there they head to the Zurquí, then to the Turrialba volcano and Irazú. Then they pass through La Carpintera and descend on Pico Blanco in Escazú and the wind turbines of Santa Ana,” Sáenz said.
The architect commented that he has pictures of UFOs in each of those places, taken with a Nikon Coolpix 900 camera with a 125x digital zoom. He explained that in his house he has a room with a balcony facing east, to be able to take the opportunity to be aware of the movements of the flying objects.
“From there we look towards the Turrialba and the Irazú volcanoes. We always get up at dawn to take pictures,” he said.
Another room in the house has a view to the south, so from there he locates the other sites he mentioned. He, along with his wife, Cindy Picado, have taken many pictures of UFOs and have a website where they usually share those images.
“In pure observation, we have been able to determine that they use the peaks of the mountains as highways, they pass over the mountain ranges, these points serving as guides. We have already seen them several times bordering the entire perimeter to reach a certain altitude, very close to the mountain, we calculate at about eighty meters,” he explained.
UFO phenomenon investigator, Max Cordero, said that there is a high probability that what Saenz says is true.
“We do not know it with certainty because it is only a theory, but there are many possibilities that these flying objects follow previously traced routes and recharge energy on the road. The mountains, the volcanoes and the hills are known as energetic places, where it is assumed that their ships can be supplied with energy,” he said.
The architect points out that September is characterized by the large number of flying objects that are observed. In fact, he pointed out that between September 14 and 15 “it was very moving”.
Sáenz said that they saw one on September 7 and that it caught his attention because it was very striking, so much so that it registered very well in two fixed shots where the object’s advancement can be seen between the Turrialba and Irazú volcanoes.
“It is very outstanding because the image is in high resolution and perhaps stands out for the landscape and reflection that the unit (UFO) has,” he said.
In summary, the couple (Sáenz who is more into videos and Cindy, who is an expert in photography) saw UFOs on September 7, 13, 14 and on the 15th they grabbed it again with a spectacular video, which according to him, is one of the best he has seen in Costa Rica.
The architect said that on those days they saw multiple objects.
Saenz explained how on the day his “chiquitín” (little kid) was in the (September 14) parades and then dropped him off at school, he took the opportunity to take some shots fo the San Isidro church.
“I took a picture of Cindy and at that moment I did not see anything, but when I saw the pictures later, I noticed that there was an object behind, where the church clock can be seen,” said Saenz.
Cordero, for his part, commented that the months of most sightings are those of summer, because there are fewer obstacles in the sky, but he does not contradict what Saenz and his wife have seen, especially in September.
“I think when we see more UFOs (which are not necessarily spaceships) when the sky is clearer and in September it does not get that much. Maybe it’s luck they have,” he said.
There’s something undeniably appealing about a good conspiracy theory. I mean, what if there is a secret cabal that’s ruling the world? What if there really is an Illuminati controlling the actions of millions? What if there really are aliens? And they’re among us?!
Self-avowed “world’s leading expert on UFOs, the unexplained and conspiracy theories” Nick Pope acts as writer and on-screen host for the documentary “Aliens At The Pentagon” and it’s an entertaining 66 minutes of paranoia, daft video sequences, and an occasional nugget of information that will make you actually wonder whether there is a seed of truth here after all.
While the film ostensibly revolves around the now infamous New York Times article from 2017 that revealed the various US Military projects investigating unknown aerial phenomena, almost the entire film is actually a tour of the history of UFOs. It all starts back in 1947 at, yes, you guessed it, Roswell, New Mexico. June 24, 1947: Pilot Kenneth Arnold reports seeing 9 unidentified flying objects zipping over the Cascade Mountains in Washington State. For the next few weeks, UFO reports come in from all over the USA. July 7, 1947, something crashed into the desert near Roswell, New Mexico, initially reported as a UFO, but then explained away as debris from a weather balloon.
Pope asks “Could the personnel from this elite military unit really have misidentified debris from a weather balloon as a flying saucer?” Apparently, the military wasn’t so sure and created a series of research projects to accumulate and investigate unidentified sightings: Project Sign, Project Grudge and, most famously, Project Blue Book. Project Blue Book investigated over 12,000 sighting reports and ended with over 700 left unexplained. In 1966, researchers at the University of Colorado, Boulder were contracted to analyze the Blue Book data, producing “A Scientific Study of Unidentified Flying Objects” in 1968. Their final report: nothing sufficient to justify further funding. And Project Blue Book was shut down.
But what if (cue dramatic music and dopey stock footage) that was just a coverup because they really had found credible evidence of alien life here on Earth? Pope makes sure you get the point: “Are we to believe that from 1970 forward, the United States has ignored all unidentified reports in US airspace? This is ridiculous! UFO’s didn’t go away!”
The entire documentary has this sort of sensibility, with National Enquirer-style breathless, click-bait writing and precious little time allocated to explanations that don’t further the conspiracy theory of UFOs actually existing. Even if you’re a fan or believer (as ‘The X-Files’ would phrase it), the film is hopelessly saddled with video footage that is only a tiny step up from clip-art, sequences of a half-dozen young people “sitting at a press conference, asking questions”, or animations that are the equivalent of what a high school video club could produce. These sequences appear again and again too, so while I appreciate the desire to tell the story visually, it weakens the entire argument as viewers mentally trip up on the amateur editing and video sequences.
Oh, and did I mention the typos and other mistakes in the film? Earlier I cited pilot Kenneth Arnold seeing 9 unidentified objects over Washington State? The animated sequence to illustrate this has 8, not 9, UFOs zipping along. Apparently, accurate counting is not a requirement for UFO conspiracists. Then there’s AATIP, the project created by the military to track unidentified objects through the ’70s, ’80s and onward. It might have been an acronym for Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Project, but it also is explained as the Advanced Aerial Threat Identification Project, which is illustrated in the video throughout as the “Advanced Arial Threat Identification Project.
Apparently ,the graphics person had typefaces on the mind: Arial is, of course, a typeface you have included with your PC or Mac system. Having this show up once is disappointing, but this graphic is used again and again in the latter portion of the film, an egregious error that further undermines the legitimacy of the film.
Pope goes on to talk about billionaire and UFO conspiracy believer Robert Bigelow, whose aerospace company builds modules for the space station. He also funds the Mutual UFO Network MUFON; he believes. He wants others to believe too. Bigelow Aerospace was also awarded the AATIP contract 2007-2012 from the Pentagon, which makes this all quite relevant. Running AATIP at Bigelow Aerospace was Luis Elizondo, quoted extensively in the movie after having resigned from AATIP and Bigelow Aerospace. He subsequently revealed that AATIP was all about investigating UFOs. Got it?
Tom DeLonge of rock group Blink 182 is also a believer, and he created the To The Stars Academy of Arts and Science where they seem to work in conjunction with the AATIP team to accumulate reports of UFO sightings, interview people involved, and collect all the data before the government arrives and silences everyone. Paranoia? Oh, yeah, a little bit. It’s about at this point that Pope starts to go on about “secret UFO technology that will let humanity travel to the stars” and posits that these secrets are all held by the deep state.
Yes, by this point you’ve either gone deep, deep down the rabbit hole and start to really wonder about all the “coincidences” in your life, or laughed as you bail on the movie. Which is too bad, because Pope brings up some really interesting questions. While the film might not actually mention the NY Times article until almost 50min into a 66min movie, there are some curious incidents that are hard to explain.
But then again, perhaps there really is a level of random chaos in the universe and while it’s appealing to think of great conspiracies (and yes, Pope also mentions the Illuminati), it’s also possible that people say and do dumb things.
Then again, perhaps this very review is part of a great “false flag alien invasion” where I’m part of the group deliberately creating a belief in aliens and manufacturing a threat that doesn’t exist. Heck, there’s a name for it: Project Bluebeam. Purpose: to “literally” bring about a new world order with no nation-states. Pope talks about this possibility too, kind of blowing the lid off our great and nefarious plot.
But…. now ya know.
Turns out I’m a alien too. Thanks for reading this, puny human. My friends from Planet Znigthar will be showing up any day now…
