    How Often Do Ice Ages Happen?

    How Often Do Ice Ages Happen?
    About 700 million years ago, during the Cryogenian glaciation, runaway glaciers made Earth look like a snowball.

    The last ice age led to the rise of the woolly mammoth and the vast expansion of glaciers. But it's just one of many that has chilled Earth throughout the planet's 4.5-billion-year history.

    So, how often do ice ages happen, and when is the next freeze expected to begin?

    The answer to the first question depends on whether you're talking about big ice ages or the little ice ages that happen within those larger periods. Earth has undergone five big ice ages, some of which lasted for hundreds of millions of years. In fact, Earth is in a big ice age now, which explains why the planet has polar ice caps. [Photo Gallery: Antarctica's Pine Island Glacier Cracks]

    Big ice ages account for about 25 percent of Earth's past billion years, said Michael Sandstrom, a doctoral student in paleoclimate at Columbia University in New York City.

    The five major ice ages in the paleo record include the Huronian glaciation (2.4 billion to 2.1 billion years ago), the Cryogenian glaciation (720 million to 635 million years ago), the Andean-Saharan glaciation (450 million to 420 million years ago), the Late Paleozoic ice age (335 million to 260 million years ago) and the Quaternary glaciation (2.7 million years ago to present).

    These large ice ages can have smaller ice ages (called glacials) and warmer periods (called interglacials) within them. During the beginning of the Quaternary glaciation, from about 2.7 million to 1 million years ago, these cold glacial periods occurred every 41,000 years. However, during the last 800,000 years, huge glacial sheets have appeared less frequently — about every 100,000 years, Sandstrom said.

    This is how the 100,000-year cycle works: Ice sheets grow for about 90,000 years and then take about 10,000 years to collapse during warmer periods. Then, the process repeats itself.

    Given that the last ice age ended about 11,700 years ago, isn't it time for Earth to get icy again?

    "We should be heading into another ice age right now," Sandstrom told Live Science. But two factors related to Earth's orbit that influence the formation of glacials and interglacials are off. "That, coupled with the fact that we pump so much carbon dioxide into the atmosphere [means] we're probably not going to enter a glacial for at least 100,000 years," he said.

    A hypothesis put forth by the Serbian astronomer Milutin Milankovitch (also spelled Milanković) explains why Earth cycles in and out of glacials and interglacials.

    As the planet circles the sun, three factors affect how much sunlight it gets: its tilt (which ranges from 24.5 degrees to 22.1 degrees on a 41,000-year cycle); its eccentricity (the changing shape of its orbit around the sun, which ranges from a near-circle to an oval-like shape); and its wobble (one full wobble, which looks like a slowly spinning top, happens every 19,000 to 23,000 years), according to Milankovitch.

    In 1976, a landmark paper in the journal Science provided evidence that these three orbital parameters explained the planet's glacial cycles, Sandstrom said.

    "Milankovitch's theory is that the orbital cycles have been predictable and very consistent throughout time," Sandstrom said. "If you are in an ice age, then you'll have more or less ice depending on these orbital cycles. But if the Earth is too warm, they basically won't do anything, at least in terms of growing ice." [Doomsday: 9 Real Ways Earth Could End]

    One thing that can warm Earth is a gas such as carbon dioxide. Over the past 800,000 years, carbon dioxide levels have fluctuated between about 170 parts per million and 280 ppm (meaning that out of 1 million air molecules, 280 of them are carbon dioxide molecules). That's a difference of only about 100 ppm between glacials and interglacials, Sandstrom said.

    But carbon dioxide levels are much higher today when compared with these past fluctuations. In May 2016, Antarctica carbon dioxide levels hit the high level of 400 ppm, according to Climate Central.

    Earth has been warm before. For instance, it was much warmer during the dinosaur age. "[But] the scary thing is how much carbon dioxide we've put in [the atmosphere] in such a short period of time," Sandstrom said.

    The warming effects of that carbon dioxide will have big consequences, he said, because even a small increase in Earth's average temperature can lead to drastic changes, he said. For instance, Earth was only about 9 degrees Fahrenheit (5 degrees Celsius) colder, on average, during the last ice age than it is today, Sandstrom said.

    If global warming causes both Greenland's and Antarctica's ice sheets to melt, the oceans will rise about 196 feet (60 meters) higher than they are now, Sandstrom said.

    The factors that caused the long ice ages, such as the Quaternary glaciation, are less well-understood than those that led to glacials, Sandstrom noted. But one idea is that a massive drop in carbon dioxide levels can lead to lower temperatures, he said.

    For instance, according to the uplift-weathering hypothesis, as plate tectonics pushed up mountain ranges, new rock became exposed. This unprotected rock was easily weathered and broken apart, and would fall into the oceans, taking carbon dioxide with it.

    These rocks provided critical components that marine organisms used to build their calcium-carbonate shells. Over time, both the rocks and the shells took carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere, which, along with other forces, helped lower carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere, Sandstrom said.

    The Most Interesting Science News Articles of the Week

    Each week we uncover the most interesting and informative articles from around the world, here are 10 of the coolest stories in science this week.

    A shrine built over a cave that is revered as the tomb of Jesus is in danger of "catastrophic" collapse, according to a report by National Geographic.

    Repair and restoration work at the Edicule has been going on for the past year, during which the limestone bed that Jesus' body was supposedly buried on was revealed. Today (March 22), National Geographic reported that the Edicule is in danger of "catastrophic" collapse if further repairs are not undertaken soon. [Read more about the dangers at the shrine.]

    Female cockroaches don't need a mate to lay eggs, but they do like company. New research finds that virgin female cockroaches housed together are quicker to produce offspring than virgin females living alone.

    To test the effect of social milieu, the researchers put female cockroaches in different situations. In the control group, a male and a female were housed together and were allowed to mate. In other cases, females were kept with one, two, three or four other females. Other female roaches were kept with castrated males. The researchers also tested the effects of adding pheromones, chemicals that insects use for communication, to all-female cockroach groups. [Read more about the strange habit.]

    Hundreds of World War I-era liquor bottles have been uncovered at a buried British barracks in Israel.

    The excavators unearthed the foundations of an agricultural building from the Ottoman Empire — which ruled Israel from 1517 until the end of World War I — that had apparently been repurposed as housing for British soldiers during the war. [Read more about the British bottles.]

    Cancer is caused by mistakes in DNA, and a new study finds that in most cancer cases, these mistakes are completely random; they're not due to heredity or environmental factors, but rather the result of random errors.

    Scientists had thought these mutations resulted mainly from two things: Either the mutation was inherited, or it was caused by outside factors that can damage DNA, such as cigarette smoke or ultraviolet radiation, the researchers wrote. But a third cause — random mistakes — actually accounts for two-thirds of these mutations, said the new study, published today (March 23) in the journal Science.

    The face of a British man who died about 700 years ago has been brought to life using reconstructive technology.

    The medieval man was buried along with hundreds of others in a graveyard underneath what is now the Old Divinity School building of St. John's College at the University of Cambridge, in the United Kingdom. [Read more about the reconstruction.]

So, when herpetologists discovered a new species of snake outside the petrochemical plant's gates, their minds went immediately to the underworld. And thus, Atractus cerberus was born. The brown-and-yellow ground snake — named after Cerberus, the mythological three-headed hound who guards Hades, the god of the underworld in ancient Greek mythology — is one of three new serpents discovered in Ecuador. All three newfound species are members of the genus Atractus, a secretive bunch that tends to evade scientific scrutiny, said Alejandro Arteaga, the scientific director of the conservation organization Tropical Herping who co-discovered and helped describe the new snakes.

    Stephen Hawking does not feel welcome in Donald Trump's America. The renowned physicist made this unhappy claim in a recent interview, and he expressed particular concern about how the Trump administration is treating the issue of climate change.

    Hawking, who once called Trump a "demagogue," said the new U.S. president was elected by "people who felt disenfranchised by the governing elite in a revolt against globalization." [Read more about the his fears.]

    The dinosaur family tree, used by paleontologists and dinosaur buffs for the past 130 years, has just been transformed.

    The new study completely reorganizes this setup. According to new analyses, theropods and ornithischians are more closely related than scientists previously thought, and both fit into a previously unknown group called Ornithoscelida, the researchers said. [Read more about the family tree.]

    Greek archaeologists have found the ancient military harbor of the island of Salamis — the very physical space from which the largest and most decisive naval battle ever fought in antiquity was launched.

    The survey identified remains of port structures, fortifications and other buildings dating from the Classical period (from the fifth to fourth centuries B.C.) and Hellenistic period, on all three sides — north, west and south — of the bay. (The beginning of the Hel lenistic period is usually marked by the death of Alexander the Great in 323 B.C.) [Read more about the ancient base.]

    'Life' Brings Alien Terror to the International Space Station

    No science-fiction movie that takes place at the International Space Station has been quite as terrifying as "Life," a new space thriller that comes out in theaters today (March 24).

    In the film, a Mars sample-return mission delivers the first proof of alien life to a group of astronauts at the International Space Station (ISS). What is at first a harmless, single-celled organism sealed inside a box in the lab grows bigger, stronger, smarter and bloodthirsty. When it breaks out of its container and comes after the astronauts, all hell breaks loose. ['Life' Movie Brings Terrifying Space Thrills (Photo Gallery)]

    The all-star cast who play the astronauts in "Life" do not disappoint. Jake Gyllenhaal stars as a doctor who has spent more than 473 days aboard the ISS. Rebecca Ferguson plays a microbiologist whose job it is to protect everyone at the station and on Earth from possible contamination by the alien. Ryan Reynolds plays the role of a spacewalk specialist and provides some necessary comedic relief to this gruesome story.

    The plot of "Life" is a bit of a mashup between the movies "Gravity" and "Alien." Just like in the "Alien" saga, the extraterrestrial in "Life" (which is nicknamed Calvin after school children on Earth won a naming contest) is out to kill every living thing aboard the spacecraft — in this case, the ISS. As the astronauts fight for their lives, they demolish the ISS. Though Calvin is the reason for their panic, the astronauts create more problems trying to kill it. 

    At times, the astronauts do things that would be considered foolish in real life, such as using fire to try to kill Calvin. (Starting fires is strictly forbidden at the ISS.) However, watching Ryan Reynolds blast flames at an octopus-like monster while chasing it around the ISS was worth the slight technical inaccuracy.

    Astronauts find the first proof of life on Mars in a sample brought to the space station. The creature, which they named Calvin, seems harmless at first before growing into a bloodthirsty monster.

    While the film is more of a horror flick than a science-driven narrative about extraterrestrial life and the International Space Station, there's plenty of real space science throughout the story to keep even hard-core space geeks entertained. The ISS is accurately and brilliantly rendered, and space-savvy viewers may recognize some of its features, such as the Canadarm robotic arm, the Cupola window and the docked Soyuz crew capsules.

    Despite the superb acting and production that went into the making of this film, the story left me feeling a bit unsettled and unsatisfied near the end. For a group of highly intelligent astronauts at the space station, the astronauts made a lot of bad decisions that only make matters worse. I would have expected better from a group of trained professionals with "the right stuff." Then again, it's hard to guess how astronauts in the real world would deal with a situation as crazy as this. After all, they are still humans.

    Overall, the film is worth a watch for anyone who's into space, horror, or both. But if you're expecting a heroic story of six brave astronauts who save the day, you might be disappointed with the ending.

    "Life" is rated R (for violence, gore, terror and profanity) and opens in theaters nationwide today (March 24).

    A dramatically turbulent cloud formation called asperitas and the bizarrely cylindrical roll cloud are among the newest additions to the international handbook for cloud identification.

    The World Meteorological Organization has released a new, digitized version of its "International Cloud Atlas," the global reference book for meteorologists and skywatchers alike. It's the first update for the atlas since 1987 and the first version to be fully web-based. The release also marks a red-letter day for amateur enthusiasts in the Cloud Appreciation Society, who get the satisfaction of seeing the asperitas cloud that they discovered become an official scientific category.

    "It is a new classification of cloud, with a chaotic, turbulent appearance, that was proposed by the Cloud Appreciation Society back in 2008, based on photographs sent to us from members all around the world," the organization posted on its blog. "It is a classic example of citizen science, in which observations by the general public, enabled by the technology of smartphones and the Internet, have influenced the development of this most official of classification systems." [Gallery: The Craziest Clouds Ever]

    The cloud atlas' classification system is not for the faint of heart. There are 10 basic "genera" of clouds, most of the names of which would be familiar to schoolchildren: cirrus, cirrocumulus, cirrostratus, altocumulus, altostratus, nimbostratus, stratocumulus, stratus, cumulus and cumulonimbus.

    Within each genera are species, which describe the internal structure of the shape of clouds. A lenticularis cloud, for example, is a flattened pancake shape that looks a bit like a giant UFO. Each type of cloud can only have one species, but the same species types are present in multiple different genera of clouds.

    Next, the classification system includes varieties of clouds, which describe the clouds' transparency and arrangement. A single cloud can have multiple varieties, except in the case of opacus (opaque) clouds varieties and translucidus (translucent) varieties, which are mutually exclusive: One doesn't let any sun through, and the other does. [See Photos of a Various Cloud Types]

    Thus, a standard cloud identification might look something like "altocumulus stratiformis translucidus perlucidus undulates" — an altocumulus cloud arranged in a thin sheet (stratiformis) that is translucent to sunlight, has small gaps allowing blue sky to show through (perlucidus) and which has wavy features (undulates).     

    The cloud atlas update doesn't alter any of the basic classifications for clouds, but it does add several new twists. The roll cloud, known as the volutus, is defined as a new species of cloud. These horizontal, cylindrical clouds form where descending cold air pushes warm, moist air upward. Under the right wind conditions, the atmospheric turbulence condenses into a tubular cloud that seems to roll across the sky.

    The atlas also adds five new "supplementary features" to its classification system. Supplementary features are unusual parts of, or attachments to, clouds. The wave-like undulations of the undersides of clouds, dubbed "asperitas," are among these new features. Another is "cavum," known colloquially as a hole-punch cloud because the cloud has a large circular gap through which the sky can be seen. A "cauda" is a horizontal feature that extends like a tail from a cloud. "Fluctus" features are wave formations that look like something a cartoon surfer would ride; they're commonly known as Kelvin-Helmholtz waves and are caused by wind shear. Finally, "murus" features, or wall clouds, are familiar to any storm chaser for their role in the formation of tornadoes.

    The other main changes to the atlas are the addition of a new accessory cloud, or a cloud that accompanies another, larger cloud, and the establishment of five new special clouds, which describe unusual cloud formation circumstances. The new accessory cloud type is called "flumen" and describes a low cloud associated with severe supercell storms.

    The five new special clouds are: cataractagenitus, describing clouds that develop from the spray of large waterfalls; flammagenitus, describing clouds formed under the influence of wildfires; homogenitus, describing clouds formed by human activities, such as airplane contrails; silvagenitus, describing clouds formed under the influence of moisture from respiring trees; and homomutatus, describing clouds originally made by humans that gradually transform into more natural-looking forms, like a contrail that eventually spreads in the wind.

    The cloud atlas is available online and will be official unveiled today (March 23) for World Meteorological Day.

    The U.S. military is developing a fairy-tale-inspired "Gremlin" program that aims to launch and retrieve drones in midair.

    "Gremlins" are a swarm of drones that can be deployed from a manned aircraft, according to the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), the branch of the U.S. military charged with developing new and innovative technologies for the nation's war fighters. The Gremlin program will allow aircraft pilots to launch the drones as needed, and call them back to the transport plane while both are still in flight.

    DARPA announced the Gremlin concept in 2015, when the agency called for proof-of-concept designs for the first phase of the project.

    Now, DARPA is moving on to the second phase, which will see the continued development of two ideas, according to Scott Wierzbanowski, DARPA program manager. [Humanoid Robots to Flying Cars: 10 Coolest DARPA Projects]

    "The Phase 1 program showed the feasibility of airborne [drone] launch and recovery systems that would require minimal modification to the host aircraft," Wierzbanowski said in a statement. "We’re aiming in Phase 2 to mature two system concepts to enable ‘aircraft carriers in the sky’ using air-recoverable [drones] that could carry various payloads — advances that would greatly extend the range, flexibility, and affordability of [drone] operations for the U.S. military."

    Phase 2 research will focus on completing designs for full-scale Gremlin drone demonstrations. The program will eventually move to Phase 3, which will result in one full-scale system demonstration that includes the airborne launch and recovery of multiple Gremlins.

    DARPA is currently scheduled to conduct flight tests for the program in 2019.

    Pareidolia: Cloud gazing at Megalo Print Gallery shows imagination and technique

    Pareidolia: Cloud gazing. Various artists. Megalo Print Gallery, 21 Wentworth Avenue, Kingston. Until April 1.

    In the famous exchange between Hamlet and Polonius, the Prince of Denmark claims that "yonder cloud" is almost "in shape of a camel" or a weasel or "like a whale", and on all occasions the courtier agrees as the obedient cloud takes on its various disguises.

    The technical term for seeing animals, faces or objects within cloud formations is pareidolia – from the Greek – "instead of" plus "image". This equally applies to seeing rabbits in the moon or a face in bunches of grapes in the wallpaper patterns, while the Rorschach inkblot test employs pareidolia as a strategy through which to gain an insight into a person's mental state.

    The new exhibition at Megalo is titled Pareidolia: Cloud gazing, where 10 printmakers have been invited to look at clouds, from both sides, and to discover for themselves hidden images. The 10 artists involved are Surya Bajracharya, Georgia Black, Waratah Lahy, Barbara McConchie, Peter McLean, Al Munro, Sandra Pitkin, Erica Seccombe, Ulrike Sturm and Jason Wing. Predictably, the result is as diverse as the participating artists with a few standout performers.

    The flexible Peter McLean has opted for the painstaking technique of mezzotint, where the artist works from dark to light and mysterious faces peer out at us from the clouds. Although the scale is small and the medium intimate, the effect is that of a vast and challenging skyscape from which whimsical images emerge. One must remember that Hamlet was only feigning madness when he claimed to see his camel and there is this sense of playful inventiveness in McLean's prints. It is a perfect combination of medium and the desired impact.

    Erica Seccombe's Fission is a clever screenprinted dot grid where our eye is invited to inhabit this sizeable print and discover our own camels and weasels. Its crispness and almost op-art like quality gives it a pulsating intensity. At the opposite end of the emotional scale are the romantic daydreams by Surya Bajracharya. They are his version of the Rorschach inkblots where he declares in his titles that he is In the mood for love and the watery monochromatic monoprint technique permits the veil of free association.

    Waratah Lahy exhibits a couple of small colour monotypes, where light mysterious forms emerge like hovering UFOs. It is possibly my imagination, rather than her prints, but I found something slightly menacing and disturbing in her image of a transfigured suburbia. Barbara McConchie exhibits a couple of ghostly images that are arresting in their subtlety. In a technique that she describes as a combination of pencil plus lino frottage, she creates fine melting forms that invite ambiguity in their interpretation. It is the sort of work that you examine and digest with your eyes and then invent your own narrative that may be quite independent of that of the artist.

    Pareidolia is a lovely exhibition in which the imagination, plus an excellence of technique, triumphs over any physical reality.

    Yamal crater siberia pingo permafrost methane

    7,000 Underground Gas Bubbles in Siberia Are About to Burst

    Though the phenomena is a mystery, scientists are fairly certain of the culprit: climate change.

    Jacqueline Ronson

    In Siberia, Russian scientists have mapped out 7,000 dirt-covered mounds, which have mysteriously taken shape in the otherwise flat tundra landscape. Some of them are slowly filling up with pressurized carbon dioxide and methane, and some of them are on the verge of exploding.

    The finding was reported last week by TASS, a Russian news service, and comes after several giant craters suddenly surfaced on the Yamal Peninsula in the Kara Sea in 2014. Size estimates vary, although one of the craters is believed to be at least 300 feet across and maybe twice as deep.

    The origin story behind the craters is shrouded in mystery, and the theories being floated are questionable at best. Initial reports stated that villagers heard an explosion from 60 miles away, and at least one person saw the sky light up (these accounts are unverified). Early speculation pointed to meteorites, secret military testing, and of course aliens.

    The most credible hypothesis is less sinister. Carolyn Ruppel of the U.S. Geological Survey posited to National Geographic that a geological formation called a pingo collapsed suddenly, releasing a mass of natural gas that had been trapped under pressure below. It didn’t explode or burn up in flames; the gas bubbled to the surface as if it was in a pot of very thick simmering stew.

    This version of events is supported by satellite imagery that shows pingos at the sites where the craters are now found. A pingo is a round hill that forms over a mound of icy soil, occurring in places where shallow permafrost lakes have drained away. The soil directly under a permafrost lake is not frozen, kept warm instead by the liquid water above. But when the lake drains, this pocket of soil freezes, and since ice takes up more space than water it bulges into a mound.

    When the permafrost that makes up a pingo melts, it can collapse away into a crater, although before these examples in Siberia they were not known to form in such a dramatic way. But climate change could make this phenomenon a lot more common.

    Permafrost is soil that is frozen year-round, and typically, it’s been that way for thousands of years. The frozen ground traps methane, preventing it from being released into the atmosphere. As the Arctic warms in response to climate change, though, permafrost is melting. It creates a feedback loop, since the melting permafrost releases greenhouse gases which contribute to more global warming.

    Normally, the gases unlocked from the permafrost simply seep out of the ground and into the atmosphere. But in this part of Siberia, this isn’t always happening seamlessly, and deposits are accumulating underground.

    Take these air pockets found recently in the same region underneath a field. These, too, are the result of methane released from permafrost below, and it seems that a thick mat of roots and grasses is slowing the gases so that they accumulate under the soil faster than they seep out. This is creating cushiony pockets that look very fun to jump on.

    If the ice that makes the structure of a pingo melts and drains away, this could become a perfect reservoir for trapped gases beneath the soil to gather. As pressure builds up below and soil destabilizes from above, conditions ripen for the whole system to collapse in a very large belch.

    What exactly happened when these craters formed is still a bit of a mystery, and scientists continue to investigate. And yet, the Russian government would rather be prepared the next time a giant chunk of earth suddenly falls away, releasing a large volume of flammable and potentially explosive gas.

    That’s why they’re mapping the pingos across the landscape, although it’s yet unclear which are still frozen solid and which may be accumulating a store of pressurized methane. Once it’s known which mounds are dangerous, it will be possible to drill into them and release the gas before it blows. Which is too bad, really — in the name of science it would be a lot more interesting to wait and witness the cratering event first hand.

    10 weird little aliens you can find right here on Earth

    The strangest creatures already live among us

    Sure, we'd all love to traipse over to Europa and go hunting for alien lifeforms. But in the meantime, we can enjoy the weirdos that already live right here on Earth. Here are 10 of our favorite Earth-dwelling aliens—organisms so strange they seem otherworldly.

    immortal jellyfish

    Wikimedia Commons

    The ocean is full of immortal beings

    Well, biologically immortal at least. Turritopsis dohrnii starts out as a little larvae but eventually settles down and forms a colony of identical polyps. Eventually, the polyps break up and form a horde of independent, sexually mature jellyfish that like to snack on other medusae. When those jellyfish get old or sick, they're able to revert back into child-like polyps and breed entirely new colonies. This growth and regression can theoretically continue forever, making the species essentially immortal. Tell me that isn’t extraterrestrial.

    You're already doing their work, dummy

    You're already doing their work, dummy

    “Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary," the genus Corvus totally took advantage of me. Ok, so that’s not exactly how Edgar Allan Poe’s "The Raven" actually goes, but it could be, because crows, ravens, rooks, and jackdaws are totally playing you. Considered some of the smartest animals of Earth— on par with many non-human primates—these black birds make tools like wire hooks and even set nuts in front of our tires so they can later retrieve the meat when our cars crack them. Admire all you want, but they never promised they came in peace.

    You wish you were

    Wikimedia Commons

    You wish you were "blind" like this bat

    Even the coolest vampire myths have got nothing on real bats. Let’s just list out the basic facts: they’re the only mammal capable of flight; a brown bat can eat 1,000 mosquitoes in a single hour, and they don’t even need to be thanked for it; they can live in communities up to a million in number; the largest bats have wingspans of 6 feet, which is taller than the average American man; and, with lifespans up to 30 years, they live way longer than most mammals their size. And that doesn’t even cover their coolest feature—echolocation. By sending out sonar into the darkness they can effectively “see” through the night, because solid objects in their path send back echoes. Small echoes might be a bug, ready to eat, while larger echoes might indicate a tree these guys need to avoid. I’m just saying, that would be a great tool on another planet, maybe one that never sees sunlight

    Avoid eye contact and back away slowly

    Avoid eye contact and back away slowly

    These deep sea creepers get a bad rap—and I’m not here to absolve them. Anglerfish live in near total darkness, they have big heads and truly incredible underbites, and the females glow thanks to bioluminescent bacteria on the end of a tiny probe growing out of their foreheads. But the anglerfish’s strangest feature is its parasitic mating strategy. The male sinks his teeth into the female and in return, she slowly absorbs him. His eyes disappear into her abdominal wall, and then the rest of him follows, until all that is left are his testes, which the female wears like a statement necklace. Oh, and she wears as many as six of these testicular trophies at a time. Stay safe, my friends.

    You... BEE!

    Wikimedia Commons

    What's the buzz

    Bee’s knees are actually cooler than we originally thought, as new research suggests they really can bend it like Beckham. Scientists trained bees to play soccer, and the bees who showed the most prowess were those that watched other bees play before trying it themselves, implying a capacity for social learning. And that’s not all, folks. They recognize human faces. They also somehow know how to determine the shortest flight path between flowers. And each bee is specially suited to its role in the hive community, while still sporting an individual identity. Of all the animals on this list, bees would likely make the most benevolent overlords. But there's still the matter of those stingers...

    a tardigrade

    Wikimedia Commons

    The strangest thing

    These deceptively cute “water bears” are actually super strong. Enamored of their resilience, scientists have been pushing them to their limit for centuries—and though they are not limitless, they’re still pretty impressive. Tardigrades can survive a few minutes at over 300 degrees Fahrenheit and a few days at negative 300 degrees. They can survive the vacuum of open space for a week and a half as well as the pressure cooker of the Mariana Trench. Once, a tardigrade even bounced back to life after 30 years spent frozen. It promptly gave birth and lived to see many generations of its family prosper.

    Platypus

    Wikimedia Commons

    Platypus phone home

    What even is a platypus? It’s like a collage made by a child asked to design an alien using Earthly animal body parts. Take a beaver’s tail, duck’s bill and feet, and an otter’s fur, mix it all together and you get a platypus. Oh, and give the males a poisonous spur in their little webbed foot. And then make the females lay eggs, but also nurse her young after they hatch. They’re definitely a great candidate for the most alien-y animals on Earth, but based solely on their scattered physiology, it seems doubtful they'll get organized enough to stage a coup. See also: the pangolin.

    army ants

    Wikimedia Commons

    Do not take me to your leader

    Army ants get stuff done. The colony is divided between blind—but terribly efficient—workers; big-jawed workers that move goods and protect the nest; a breeding class of males; and the queen around which they all revolve. These clear “careers” allow the unit to build a nest out of only their bodies, work together to kill and consume hundreds of thousands of individual prey (other ants, wasps, larvae) each day, and protect millions of the queen’s eggs. Imagine what humans could do with this kind of hive mind—for better or worse (but probably worse).

    mantis shrimp

    Wikimedia Commons

    I ain't afraid of no shrimp

    When humans look at a mantis shrimp, they see the tiny creature's beautiful rainbow shell. What a mantis shrimp sees when it looks in the mirror is hard to determine, because where we have only three receiving cones in our eyes, the mantis shrimp has sixteen. They're seeing colors we can't even imagine. But for all their beauty, they're total monsters, and boy, are they good at being bad. The shrimp can move so fast the water around their prey actually boils—so hot, when the bubbles collapse, they emit a blast of light—making it easy to pick apart the prey and feast. Hopefully, they won't turn on us before we've learned to use their own skills against them, as researchers are currently working to translate their understanding of the mantis shrimp into the development of military technology.

    The original desalination plant

    Wikimedia Commons

    The original desalination plant

    Penguins are cute, sure, but they're not typically lauded as innovators. But these flightless birds have a special supraorbital gland on their foreheads that gives them a power humans have been lusting over for decades: they can remove sodium chloride from the seawater they ingest. Penguins, it turns out, need freshwater, but they're not likely to get it, as they tend to live in salty waters. So they've developed a super-kidney that takes the salt out of a penguin's bloodstream and secretes it back into the ocean through its bill. It doesn't turn saltwater into freshwater directly, as some urban legends have suggested, but it's an impressive tool nonetheless.

    8 Cave Paintings depicting Aliens

    All over the world there are unexplained cave paintings that archeologists struggle to explain. Here are 8 cave paintings depicting aliens / UFOs. It is believed that prehistoric caveman used to draw whatever he used to see, hence the existences of the images of UFOs and aliens in the various cave drawings certainly prove that aliens and UFOs are not the yield of creative minds only.

    Sego Canyon, Utah, USA

    Sego Canyon alien pictographs ?

    Large eyes and missing limbs of the creatures would certainly remind you of visitors from the outer space. These paintings are found to be 7,500 years old.

    Val Camonica, Italy

    8 Cave Paintings depicting Aliens

    Dating back to 10,000 B.C., there are several strange depictions in this Italian caves. It appears to depict two beings in protective suits holding strange implements. Notice the halo looking objects over their heads, which is very similar to other early cave drawings and paintings.

    Niaux caves, France

    What looks exactly an outline diagram of a spaceship as seen in sci-fi movies is actually a cave drawing that is found in the Niaux caves of France. This Paleolithic cave painting was drawn some time between 13,000 B.C. and 10,000 B.C.

    Prehistoric Cave Art of Niaux France

    Tassili, Sahara desert, Algeria

    8 Cave Paintings depicting Aliens

    This figure also does not look human. Notice the same halo-looking object around the head that we see in some of the other paintings from other parts of the world. This cave painting is from Tassili, Sahara Desert in North Africa. It dates back to 6000 B.C. The figures do not look human. Notice the flying disk in the sky.

    Itolo, Tanzania

    8 Cave Paintings depicting Aliens

    Several disc shaped objects are seen in the cave drawings of Itolo, in Tanzania that dates back to 27,000 B.C.

    Cave of Pech Merle, France

    8 Cave Paintings depicting Aliens

    The drawings in the cave of Pech Merle near Le Cabrerets in France depict a field of different wild animals, amidst which there is a strange looking humanoid structure that has limbs and a tail as well. There is no reason to believe that this figure was imaginative as all the other animals seen in the drawing can be recognized. Three flying objects are also seen in this drawing that was drawn about 17000 to 19000 years ago.

    Kimberly, Australia

    These cave paintings date back to approximately 3,000 B.C and are from Kimberley, Australia. These are more ancient paintings of what the local Aborigines call the Wandjina.

    Notice how these also possess the same dominate characteristics: the eyes and the halo-type object around the heads. Most of these also possess the bulbous head which the famous “greys” are said to possess.

    Chhattisgarh, India

    10,000-year-old rock paintings depicting aliens and UFOs found in Chhattisgarh 1

    10,000-year-old rock paintings depicting aliens and UFOs found in Chhattisgarh

    We already write about this one here. These paintings which are about 10,000 years old depict humanoid figures that do not have nose or lips and are characterized by large bulging eyes only.

    Alien: Covenant unleashes intense new international trailer

    Fox has unleashed an intense new international trailer for Ridley Scott’s Alien: Covenant.

    The new two-minute trailer doesn’t show an awful lot of new footage, but does give us a bit more Xenomorph attack action as one stalks the unfortunate crew of the titular colony ship Covenant.

    Basically, they’re probably all screwed.

    The new trailer uses the same tagline of “the path to paradise begins in hell” that was in the trailer unveiled earlier this month.

    That clip gave us a bit more of an idea how the crew of the Covenant find themselves in danger as they come across what they think is an unexplored nirvana, only to discover it’s actually a Xenomorph-filled nightmare.

    Whoops.

    Alien: Covenant unleashes intense new international trailer

    At least we now know where the Xenomorphs came from as a preview this week answered a long-standing question about the origin of the aliens.

    It seems that it was all android David’s (Michael Fassbender) fault. After his meddling in Prometheus, it looks like in the intervening years, he has perfected the creatures seen at the end of that movie into the familiar facehuggers we know.

    Back in January, we were lucky enough to get a glimpse of the carnage in store with three scenes from Alien: Covenant and it looks like it’ll be very violent, very scary and very Alien.

    Alien: Covenant bursts into UK cinemas on May 12 and US cinemas on May 19.

    Film Arrival – reviewed by a UFO expert

    Nick Pope by Nick Pope

    A scene from the sci-fi thriller Arrival

    A scene from the sci-fi thriller Arrival

    What does Arrival have to say about our readiness to deal with aliens? Nick Pope, who was responsible for investigating UFO sightings during his time with the Ministry of Defence in the 1990s, watched the new sci-fi blockbuster

    Extraterrestrials arrive on Earth in giant spaceships, and the world holds its breath as we wait to see if they’ll be friendly, or whether this is the beginning of an alien invasion. So far, so Hollywood.

    But what if we can’t figure out what they want – how would we communicate with them? This intriguing question forms the central premise of Arrival, and to help figure things out the military call in a linguist, Dr. Louise Banks, superbly played by Amy Adams. Her backstory involves the death of her daughter, but while this is a plotline that has the potential to take us into clichéd territory, it’s deftly handled and turns out to be relevant.

    “I’ve often been asked if there’s a government contingency plan for dealing with extraterrestrial visitation. There isn’t.”

    This is a movie that resonates with me personally. I worked for the Ministry of Defence for 21 years and for much of the early Nineties I was posted to a section where my duties included researching and investigating the UFO phenomenon.

    I’ve often been asked if there’s a government contingency plan for dealing with extraterrestrial visitation. There isn’t, but director Denis Villeneuve’s film may have you thinking it might not be such a bad idea to draw one up.

    Communication and the potential for miscommunication are central themes, as illustrated by a clever discussion about the potential confusion between a tool and a weapon. There’s enough technical material about the theory and structure of language to make us appreciate the problem, but not so much that the movie gets bogged down in over-technicality.

    This is definitely a movie with a message. In parallel with the struggle to establish meaningful communication with the extraterrestrials, it’s clear that with alien craft hovering over a variety of different terrestrial powers and superpowers, perhaps the biggest danger comes from our failure to properly communicate with each other: astrophysicists with linguists, military with scientists, East with West. Amy

    Arrival

    Adams as Dr Louise Banks in Arrival

    Cleverly, the military are neither eulogised nor demonised in this film, and this entire aspect of the movie is focused on the character of the senior officer in charge of the US response, Colonel Weber.

    Weber’s character is played with considerable sensitivity by Forest Whitaker – the steel is clearly there, but there’s a counter-intuitive quietness about him, that helps us steer clear of sci-fi clichés and get to the deeper and more thoughtful core.

    • Arrival review: a refreshingly intelligent slice of sci-fi

    In a similar vein, the spaceships and the aliens are well-designed, but never threaten to take over the movie.

    Arrival is sci-fi at its best: visually stunning for sure, but with such a good story at its heart that it never needs to rely on special effects to bail it out.

    It seems that hardly a week goes by now without some new exoplanet being discovered, coupled with speculation that it’s only a matter of time before we discover alien life.

    Arrival made me look back fondly at my old MoD job, and did make me wonder whether it wouldn’t be prudent to draw up a plan for what to do if any of this ever happened for real.

    Arrival is in cinemas now

    Could We Really Be Living in the Matrix? Here’s What Science Has to Say

     
    IN BRIEF
    • A Matrix prequel is in the works, but the science on which the dystopian future rests has some scratching their heads.
    • A video breaks down the feasibility of utilizing an enslaved humanity to power their robotic overlords.

    In the 1999 movie “The Matrix,” the dystopian future is ruled by robots that have harnessed the energy generated by human bodies. Today, rumors that a prequel is in the works are swirling, and the ideas for how a society like this might come to be has us asking, “could humanity really be a sufficient power source for malevolent machines?”

    According to the estimates of the Matrix character, Morpheus, the net output per human in energy is 315 W of power, and if the entire world’s population is under control, that would mean 2 TW of power, equivalent to five times the output of all nuclear reactors on the planet! But in reality, the potential for total human output is actually around 0.6 TW, and if we account for efficiency it is actually about 0.18 TW.

    Assuming that matrix is at least power-dependent as the internet, and internet ranges around 30 GW of power, the calculations may possibly bring light to a matrix. But it wouldn’t make sense, as the energy outputted by humans is contingent on energy inputted (food). So while we doubt the synthetic robots would be feeding a source of energy that they depend on, obfuscating the whole human battery concept — some are still concocting theories to make the Matrix work.

    Regardless of its scientific plausibility, we are looking forward to seeing the digital dystopia light up our screens once again.

    That Ain't No Little Green Man

    Are These Strange Creatures From Above or Below?

    That Ain't No Little Green Man

    Decades of entertainment and pop culture have invaded our eyes and ears with tales of little green men coming from destinations unknown and plaguing our skies and our homes. These little green critters often changed throughout the decades as stories spread and culture shifted. So when we hear the stories of close encounters with what we often consider aliens, it's no wonder that some of these more radical reports get brushed to the side. They just seem to be too damn strange. They don't fit the prototypical alien mythology we've been conditioned to believe (or not believe) is true. They bend the rules and they challenge the norm. So what are these outsiders amongst outsiders? Let's take a look at a few cases of possible monsters from above... or possibly below.

    The Flatwoods Monster

    It was September 12th, 1952. In the town of Flatwoods, West Virginia, three young boys were wrapping up an evening of football when they noticed something unusual in the night sky. As they watched above, a rather bright object seemed to be making a rapid descent towards a nearby farm. Scared and excited, the boys immediately rushed to the first home they could find. This was the home of one Kathleen May. May, fearing an aircraft crash of some sort, called the local police. But they didn't want to wait, fearing that someone may be hurt and need immediate attention. Soon, May, the children, and her dog, all headed out to the proposed site where the object had either landed or crashed.

    As the group made their way towards the top of a nearby hill, the dog excitedly ran ahead, sensing something of interest. Moments later, the dog returned, looking completely scared and whimpering. It wouldn't be long before the group saw just exactly what the dog had encountered. About one hundred yards or so in the distance, a glowing object burned bright, a hissing sound emanating in all directions. A thick mist covered the area. As the group timidly moved forward, they noticed that the light was actually two circles, giving off the effect of headlights of some sort. As one of the boys cast his flashlight forward, it soon became clear that the object wasn't an object at all. It was alive.

    As they all stood in terror, they looked on at a creature that was about ten feet tall and four feet wide. It appeared to be wearing some sort of metallic suit, green in color, pipes, and valves wrapping around it. A cowl, shaped like an ace of spades, covered its blood-red head. The eyes of the creature seemed to be portholes of some sort, a mixture of green and orange light piercing through them. Varying accounts also describe the creature as having small, stick-like arms, while others claim it had no appendages. Either way, as the group began to become more vocal, the creature seemed to take notice. It hissed furiously and began to ominously float towards them.

    Petrified, the group ran back over the hill and fled the area. It was at this point that the local sheriff finally showed up. May began to explain what they'd seen, and soon a local news reporter, A. Lee Stewart of the Braxton Democrat, was on site, interviewing the witnesses. Meanwhile, the sheriff and several officers searched the area for the creature but could find nothing. Many other reports of flying objects had been reported in the area prior to this event, and even of the same creature. Civilian Saucer Investigation (CSI) had compiled many reports which included that of a mother and her daughter who claimed to have encountered the same metallic, hissing creature. The encounter had emotionally and mentally affected the daughter so severely that she remained in a hospital for weeks trying to recover from the entire ordeal. Another interesting report came from the mother of the farmer who the original event had stricken. She claimed that at around the same time of the incident, the radio in her home cut out completely and some sort of explosion seemed to occur, shaking the entire foundation of the home.

    While reports continued to trickle in prior to and after this main event, it was clear that something from above had come down in Braxton County in the small town of Flatwoods, West Virginia. But just like many tales of this kind, the town embraces it with open arms and open pockets. It has become a destination for many monster hunters and folklore enthusiasts, small tourist attractions littered with images of the monster welcoming visitors from all over the world. So was this smelly, metallic, hissing creature something from outer space? Or was it all just a desperate ploy to bring attention to the town? Either way, the Flatwoods Monster remains a staple of both UFO and monster lore, blending the two in enigmatic intrigue.

    The Hopkinsville Goblins

    It was August 21st, 1955 when the Sutton family were settling down for a night with friends in their farmhouse, located on Old Madisonville Road, about eight miles north of Hopkinsville, Kentucky. Indoor plumbing was a luxury they just couldn't afford, and as the summer night progressed, it was usually warm. One of the friends, Billy Ray Taylor, went outside to fetch some water for the group. But as he made his way to the well, he noticed something unusual above him.

    There, in the night sky, a multi-colored object hovered and seemed to be spitting flames in every direction. Suddenly, the object began to make a rapid descent into a gully about three-hundred yards away. Struck by the event, Taylor rushed inside to tell everyone what he'd seen. As he excitedly described the object, the Suttons, and even Taylor's wife, believed him to be making the entire story up. They brushed it off and went on with their night.

    It was around 8 pm when the Sutton family dog began to bark at something at the window. Curious, the oldest son of the family, Elmer, noticed something glowing outside. As he peered out the window, he reeled back in surprise. There, behind the glass, was what appeared to be a small figure. It was about three feet tall with a large head and bat-like ears. It had large eyes, no nose, and a mouth that stretched from one side of its face to another. It was very thin, with long arms that included talon-like claws. A silver-colored suit covered its body. As the Suttons and friends began to react inside, the creature noticed that it had been spotted. It then began to float towards the house, a few feet off the ground. At this point, Elmer and Taylor grabbed a pair of rifles and headed outside.

    Upon seeing the creature floating in mid-air, they panicked and both began to open fire. But the creature was unfazed. It turned and disappeared into the darkness. They returned inside to calm the rest of the group, explaining they'd at least scared the creature away. To assure them of this, they went outside again. But just as Taylor walked out, a claw grabbed him by the hair from the roof above. Elmer once again opened fire on the creature, hitting it directly. It fell from the roof and onto the ground below. Suddenly, a bright light illuminated from the nearby woods. Another creature soon appeared. And another. It was clear that the Sutton farm was being invaded my these goblin-like creatures.

    A one-sided firefight ensued for the next few hours, as Taylor and Elmer continued firing at the creatures every time they tried to approach. And each time, they would retreat into the darkness of the woods. Around 11 pm, terrified and exhausted, the activity seemed to wind down, and soon, the creatures were nowhere to be found. The Taylors and Suttons hopped into their vehicles and immediately headed for the Hopkinsville police station.

    After explaining in great detail what had just occurred, several officers accompanied the group back at the farm. After a long investigation lasting well into the early morning, they could find nothing and left the scene. Apparently, around 2:30 am, the Taylor and Sutton family were terrorized yet again by the creatures as they played their mind games yet again, appearing and disappearing into the dark. Gunfire ensued yet again until the sun rose and the families finally fell asleep, hoping this was all just a very vivid nightmare. But it wasn't.

    The following morning, a report of the event was published in the Kentucky New Era newspaper, the police having seemingly released information to the media. As news spread, reporters from all over the country descended on the small farm. UFO enthusiasts camped out on the family's lawn, hoping for a return by these possibly extraterrestrial goblins. Completely disturbed by the media circus and the exposure, the Sutton family eventually sold the farm and moved into the nearby town of Kelly, hoping to blend in and forget about that terrifying night.

    But the towns of Kelly and Hopkinsville never forgot. The story made it into many publications on UFOs and encounters with alien beings. And the town of Kelly even holds the annual Little Green Men Festival, highlighting the events that took place on the Sutton farm. And while the current owner of the land dissuades any from visiting, that doesn't stop a community who sees peaks in tourism every August when the event originally occurred.

    The Dover Demon

    It was in April of 1977 when the small town of Dover, Massachusetts suffered a string of strange sightings involving a small creature roaming the streets. First reported by a group of teenage boys, Bill Bartlett, 17, noticed a small figure huddled next to a stone wall as they passed by it in their vehicle. The figure soon came into sight from the car’s headlights, turning and staring straight at Bartlett. Its eyes were, according to Bartlett, “glowing brightly like orange marbles. It was about four feet tall and stood upright. It had a pale, gray tone to its hairless body. It had no nose or mouth. Its head was very large like a watermelon,” he would go on to describe. While the other friends in the car didn’t see anything, they all admitted that Bartlett was extremely distraught after telling them what he had seen. Bartlett would return home that night, visibly shaken, according to his father, and sketched the creature.

    It was a few hours later that the second sighting of this creature took place. John Baxter, 15, was walking home from his girlfriend’s house. Thinking it was a friend of his, he approached, stunned when he finally saw the silhouette of something rather odd. This small creature stared at him, standing upright, with bright orange/red eyes. It had very long toes and fingers which clung tight to rocks on the ground.

    The following night would include what most considered the final sighting of the Dover Demon. Abby Brabham was being driven home by a friend when she noticed a small creature on the side of the road. She would describe it quite similarly to that of Bartlett and Baxter, however, she stated that it was crawling on all fours. Her description of the eyes differed as well, proclaiming a bright green color.

    Despite the variances in witness testimony, it seems that something truly strange was wandering the streets of Dover over the span of two nights. Could the fact that as the sightings grew, the creature was becoming more and more desperate to not be seen? Or perhaps, it was somehow ill or injured, starting on two legs, and slowly digressing in strength, having to eventually crawl. Though completely speculative, it seemed that this creature did not want to be seen. But in the eyes and memory of the three witnesses above, the small gray creature dubbed the Dover Demon has all but faded into cryptozoological obscurity, its bright orange (or green) eyes haunting the back roads of Dover up until today.

    Conclusions

    It is quite apparent that the stories above don't fit the typical close encounter narratives we are used to when dealing with UFO cases. In fact, these stories may have absolutely nothing to do with aliens. But the appearance of objects in the sky preceding some of the events does beg the question; if not alien, then what? And while these cases may go down in cryptid lore for decades to come, one thing is for certain. The Flatwoods Monster, The Hopkinsville Goblins, and the Dover Demon will continue to haunt the pages of many books, many films, and many tourist traps. But more importantly, they will continue to haunt our minds as we peer into the darkness time and time again, hoping we will never come face-to-face with any or all of these creatures from parts unknown.

    They’re real and contain hidden messages, scientist says

    Crop circles have been appearing around the world for centuries.

    IT all started with a UFO sighting.

    Dr Horace Drew, 61, was just 10 years old when he allegedly saw an unidentified, silver, windowless craft hovering in the sky near his suburban home, in Jacksonville, Florida. The encounter lasted only moments but led to a lifelong fascination with the extraterrestrial.

    “I saw a UFO, so I knew they were real from an early age,” Dr Drew told news.com.au.

    The scientist, who holds a PhD in Chemistry from Caltech, the California Institute of Technology, and worked for CSIRO as a molecular biologist, has been researching crop circles and aliens for 20 years. Dr Drew relocated to Australia in the 1980s but most of his work has taken him overseas, predominantly to Europe.

    “They’re quite rare in Australia,” he said.

    He, along with many conspiracy theorists, believe crop circles are the work of aliens or human time travellers. Sceptics say most are probably man-made.

    A crop circle is typically defined by standing wheat stems that have been flattened in the shape of a circle or more complex pattern. They tend to appear mainly in developed Western or secularised countries — including Japan.

    The cause of many of the circles is unknown despite various natural and unorthodox explanations having been put forward. Some crop circles have been proven to be hoaxes.

    But according to Dr Drew, a number are legitimate and contain puzzles that can be decoded and linked to time travel and alien life.

    He told news.com.au he had visited about “two dozen crop circles” around the globe in his career. Typically, they were between 50-500m in length, he said.

    “For the past 20 years I have been studying UFOs or crop circles. Just as other mainstream scientists study conventional subjects,” Dr Drew told guests at the March UFO & Paranormal Research Society of Australia (UFO-PRSA) seminar in Sydney on Wednesday night.

    “This has led to at least one major breakthrough the discovery of a more advanced binary code than our computers currently use.”

    Dr Drew claimed that aliens or human time travellers have been leaving the crop circles on Earth as messages to “us or themselves”.

    WHY ARE THERE CROP CIRCLES?

    Dr Drew said he was one of a handful of scientists around the world who had worked to successfully decode some of the messages in crop circles.

    According to him, some crop circles provide general descriptions of the future.

    “Other crop (circles) show schematic images of the future for astronomical or human events,” he said.

    He said some of the decoded messages read: ‘Much pain but still time. Believe. There is good out there’; ‘Beware the bearers of false gifts and their broken promises’; ‘We oppose deception. Conduit closing’.

    Dr Drew has developed at least two theories as to the purpose of the circles by reading their “advanced (version of) binary codes”.

    “One theory is that they are trying to introduce themselves to us peacefully, like we do using bubbles with dolphins,” he said.

    “When (humans) want to talk with dolphins we put little bubble circles under the ocean with a generator. We watch the dolphins come up and play and investigate, and we study them.

    “This is called the ‘dolphin communication project’.”

    He said the dynamic between the way humans interact with dolphins and whales was likely comparable to how extraterrestrials communicate with us.

    “Barack or Trump have never said to a dolphin: ‘take me to your leader I want to sign a treaty with you’,” he said.

    “And (the extraterrestrials are) not interested in making a treaty with us.

    “They are ahead of us like we are ahead of the dolphins and the whales.”

    His second theory was that the messages “are not even for us”.

    Dr Drew said human time travellers from the distant future could be creating the circles as directional markers, to help them navigate “in their distant past, which is our present”.

    “There are definitely humans living there in about 5000 years with time travel capability,” he said.

    “They’re coming back and flying all over Earth.

    “They seem to just say ‘this is a certain day’ and mark it.

    “So the trouble is we don’t know space time physics enough to understand what’s happening. It’s beyond our knowledge.

    “Maybe they don’t want us to know about it. It might be just for them.”

    It’s a theory shared by many in his field of work.

    A crop circle once appeared in field of wheat at Clay Hill, Warminster, Wiltshire. The site, made famous by UFO sightings in the 60s and 70s, had crop circle experts baffled over the 200 foot design.

    HOW ARE THEY MADE?

    Dr Drew said the circles appeared to be created by an “unknown energy that heats the crops up”.

    “It’s like microwave energy but is something beyond earth’s science,” he said.

    “It can pattern the wheat.

    “No one sees or hears anything and that's why its so hard to prove. If there’s a craft, it’s silent, noiseless.”

    But there’s nothing to fear, according to him.

    “Don’t be afraid,” he said.

    REAL OR A HOAX?

    Telling the difference between a real crop circle and a hoax is like differentiating between an original painting and a fake, according to Dr Drew.

    “There are some things to look for,” he said.

    Crops that are bent “halfway up” their stems, rather than on the ground ,is one telltale sign “cereologists”, or someone that advocates paranormal explanations of crop circles, look for to determine that it’s not a hoax.

    “You can’t absolutely prove a crop circle wasn’t a hoax but you can give a high probability and judgment,” he said.

    “If there’s a hoax the word of it gets around very fast, people are aware, people are not that easily fooled.”

    Scientist Dr Horace Drew said he took this photos in a “newly found crop” circle at Etchilhampton near Decizes, England in July, 2012. “About 25 per cent of fallen wheat stems inside the picture were bent by unknown energies,” he told a conference on Wednesday.

    In 1991, English pranksters Doug Bower and Dave Chorley took credit for most of the crop circles across southern England made since 1978. They were inspired by the Tully “saucer nest” case in Australia, where a farmer found a flattened circle of swamp reeds after observing a UFO.

    Using basic tools including a plank of wood, rope, and a baseball cap fitted with a loop of wire to help them walk in a straight line, they said they made complex crop circles in England — which others then copied all over the world into the 1980s.

    They made a circle for journalists, which was later declared authentic by a cereologist. They then revealed their hoax to the world, spurring on even more copycats.

    Dr Drew said there was a lot of scientific evidence to show that some crop circles were made by human time travellers or extraterrestrial beings. “Laboratory results on plant or soil samples taken from a crop circle in Brazil in October of 2016 show that it was formed by unknown sterilising images,” he said.

    The earliest mention of a crop circle dates back to the 1500s. A woodcut from the time showed a “mowing devil” making the pattern.

    GOVERNMENT SECRETS?

    Earlier this month, US TV host Jimmy Kimmel asked former US President George Bush if he went through “secret files, the UFO documents” when he was in office.

    But instead of laughing off the question, the former commander in chief replied: “Maybe.”

    Mr Kimmel then asked him if there were “any great secrets you know that you can’t share with people?”

    “Yeah, there are,” Mr Bush said. “But I’m not telling you.”

    Many conspiracy theorists and some scientists, including Dr Drew, argued that Mr Bush’s comments indicated the US government knows much more about extraterrestrial life than it has publicly revealed.

    “The politicians are scared they'll lose votes if they talk about it,” Dr Drew said.

    He said international media had also played a part in causing the public to doubt the legitimacy of crop circles and aliens.

    But according to him, its important for humans to keep seeking answers.

    “The ET visitors have technologies which would benefit us greatly, for example, how to make safe, clean energy without burning oil, coal or gas,” Dr Drew said.

    “Ultra-fast propulsion systems, based on gravity and inertia, could carry us safely to distant planets or stars.

    “We may also need to upgrade our planetary defences soon, to protect against ET’s who may not be friendly.”

    There’s still a lot more to be understood but Dr Drew’s hope is that he one day gets a closer look at what was inside the UFO he believes he saw as a child.

    “I’d like to meet (the extraterrestrials or human time travellers) in person,” he said.

    “But I don’t think they're going to do that.

    “Whichever scientific team is doing this I don’t think we’re supposed to have full knowledge of it because it will interrupt their program, whatever they're doing.”

    Is Footage From The International Space Station Proof Aliens Exist?

    I am fairly certain aliens exist at this point. I don't think they're little green men, or small and wrinkly like ET, or even red and angry like Martians, but I'm pretty sure they're out there. Humans can't be the only intelligent life in the universe. We're not even that intelligent; people die putting on their trousers every year. They genuinely fall over and hit their head or accidentally strangle themselves with their own jeans.

    Like I said, I'm pretty sure aliens exist and they're laughing at us.

    It's getting the proof that's the hard bit.

    But UFO obsessives are pretty sure that they've found hard, concrete evidence.

    A lot of people think that aliens have been watching the International Space Station for years. NASA doesn't think so - but is the space agency lying to us? They certainly know a lot more than they let on.

    The conspiracy theorists say there are lots of unmanned flying objects around the ISS. Can you see an alien in this photo? I can see stars...

    Either I need to get some specs, or there isn't anything there. Samantha Cristoforetti, an Italian European Space Agency astronaut, is just showing how to operate window shutters in a very snazzy top that I now want.

    If she weren't in space, it wouldn't really be that exciting. Some aliens would make a day in space a bit more fun.

    Surely if there were UFO whizzing around the space station someone would have noticed before now? And perhaps done something?

    Are these a host of alien space ships or just...debris? It looks like the milkyway has dandruff to me.

    Tyler Glockner is convinced. On his YouTube channel he says: "I do believe that we have some undeniable footage that will prove that there are unknown manned objects flying out there in space.

    "I'm not talking about space debris or any of the usual go-to excuses used by NASA.

    "I've had a tonne of people saying there is a point in this video when, moment after [Samantha] opens up this window hatch, there are multiple UFOs that can be seen speeding by."

    Not too sure about that Tyler. Aliens...or bits of space rubble.

    But it's not just space. Aliens have also been seen in Lancashire. Apparently it's now part of the remit of the police to check out UFO sightings! Well, as long as it's not getting cats out of trees, I guess. Checking out a potential suspect alien is a pretty fun way to spend Monday afternoon.

    In a Freedom of Information request, the police were forced to admit they had to check out Lytham St Annes, near Blackpool, and Buckshaw Village, near Chorley for alien spacecrafts two years ago. That's probably the most exciting thing to happen in either of those places!

    And there's more. A UFO apparently landed in Pendle Hill two years ago and even last year the Lancashire police had several occasions where they had to check for red and white UFOs.

    But the police are denying that they actually think any aliens are lingering in the Lancashire area. Apparently if someone says they think they saw an alien, the police treat is as suspicious and think it could be something else.

    Personally I would be more inclined to believe that the caller was high. But that's just yet another reason why I'm not in any position of authority.

    Montana Album: Police spot UFO; Feed situation ‘very alarming’

    50 Years Ago

    From the Tribune week of March 19, 1967

    Construction is scheduled to begin by April 1 on a million-dollar discount center on the south side of Tenth Avenue South east of Forty-Seventh Street. The Great Falls Valu-Mart Department store will be the 18th built by Weisfield’s Inc of Seattle. With 100,000 square feet of floor space, the center will handle groceries, jewelry, drugs, hardware, ladies’ apparel, men’s clothing, shoes, appliances, toys, linens, records and cameras. The center will have parking for 1,000 cars.

    MONTGOMERY, Ala. – A federal court on Wednesday ordered the desegregation of all Alabama schools not already under court order and, in an unprecedented move, laid the burden of enforcement on the state itself. The three-judge court in its unanimous ruling ordered the state to require affected school systems to submit desegregation plans for the 1967-68 school term. Gov. Lurleen Wallace declined comment pending official notification of the ruling. Her husband, George C. Wallace, whom she succeeded, has long fought against integration.

    new unidentified flying object sighting was made by three sheriff’s deputies and several others Thursday night, according to a report filed Friday. Undersheriff Frank Takala said the object hovered north and west of Gore Hill. The report said the UFO was yellow in color and seemed to emit a red glow from top and bottom. After remaining motionless in an overcast and starless night, it traveled west and disappeared. The undersheriff said it appeared to be about six times as large as the largest star that can be seen on a clear night. UFOs were also reported near Vaughn, Fort Benton and Choteau on Tuesday night.

    VAIL, Colo. –  French skier Jean-Claude Killy made it four in a row Sunday as he sped through a blinding snowstorm to win the men’s giant slalom at the Vail Trophy race. Killy made the mile-long, 47-gate course in 1:42.83, seemingly unbothered by the poor visibility and rutted, icy trace. “Other people have five senses, but Killy has six,” French coach Honore Bonnet explained.

    Firemen had to watch their equipment with one eye and the work at hand with the other Friday afternoon while fighting a fire at the resident of Joe Slemberger, 3209 6th Ave. S. Children in the area made off with a hydrant wrench while firemen were busy and almost got a hand radio valued at about $500 before a fireman saw a child running across a lawn with it. A fire official had left it near the home before going into the smoky basement to inspect damage.

    100 Years Ago

    From the Tribune week of March 19, 1917

    That interest in naval and military matters are not confined to the males was evidenced a day or two ago when a young woman appeared at the navy recruiting office in the Simpson building and inquired as to the possibilities of her admission to the service. She said she had been told that the Navy Department was taking on women as stenographers and other work. Chief Petty Officer A. Foltz, who is in charge of the station, was compelled to decline to accept the proffered enlistment. So far during the present month five enlisted men only have been sent out from this station.

    NEW YORK – James W. Gerard, former American ambassador to Germany, in an address before the New York chamber of commerce today, urged his hearers to go forth as missionaries of preparedness. Mr. Gerard predicted that if war should come, the U.S. would be faced with a great problem in dealing with “our alien enemy population.” “The question is,” he said, “’Shall we intern them as was done in Germany, or shall we allow them to roam at large, destroying bridges or anything else they can?’”

    CHINOOK W.M. – Wooldridge came up from his ranch at Hinsdale yesterday for a brief stay. Mr. Wooldridge says the feed situation is very alarming all over northern Montana. Not since the country was first settled has there been such a long and hard winter for cattlemen and sheep men. Until this winter, Mr. Wooldridge has never been able to make a price for hay that could compete with prices in Lewistown and Butte, but now the dealers will pay almost any old price that is asked.

    FORT WORTH, Texas –  Military training for professional baseball players has proved that it possesses a triple value at least. It varies the monotony of spring training; it improves the morale of a team; and it is a start toward providing Uncle Sam with a considerable number of good soldiers if he needs them. The results of the innovation, as far as the White Sox are concerned, has been very surprising. The players, almost without exception, took hold with determination and seriousness.

    WASHINGTON – The principal American copper producers have agreed to furnish the government the copper needed for the army and navy during the coming year at 16 and a fraction cents a pound, about one-half of the current market price. Forty-five million pounds is the amount to be delivered. It is the first big concession in response to the appeals to the patriotism of the country’s industries since the Navy’s agreements with the shipbuilders and steel makers for profit cutting.

    THE SECRET OF THE MYSTERIOUS HANDBAG IN ANCIENT TIMES - HIDDEN TECHNOLOGY?

    Mankind is a species with amnesia. The veil of time has obscured a lot of ancient knowledge and technology. Luckily some ancient stone carvings, statues and art works offer us the of understanding some of these forgotten tools.

    In Mesopotamia, the cradle of modern civilization, the symbol of the mysterious handbag is shown in countless stone carvings and statues, dating back as far as 10.000 bc. The handbag motif is featured prominently in their sacred artwork.

    The Sumerians depicted the so called Annunaki carrying what seems to be a handbag. These Annunaki were called the Nephilim in the Bible. The object is linked to the archetype of "The Tree of life" which connects to heaven and the underworld. It was said it connected all forms of creation.

    In ancient Egypt, we can see the Ankh symbol being carried in a very similar way. The Ankh was the symbol of life. Could it be that the Ankh symbol and the symbol of the handbag are one and the same?

    In Mexico, the handbag symbol can be found on many historical sites and is depicted in their most sacred works of art.

    In Indonesia, we find the same handbag featured in multiple stone carvings. How did this handbag symbol become a world wide phenomenon? And more importantly, what did it represent? Did it contain secret knowledge offered by the gods as some myths claim? Was it some form of secret technology that we have forgotten?
