    World First: Nanobot Micromotors Deliver Medical Payload Inside Living Creature

    via internetmedicine.com

    via internetmedicine.com

    Researchers working at the University of California, San Diego have claimed a world first in proving that artificial, microscopic machines can travel inside a living creature and deliver their medicinal load without any detrimental effects. Using micro-motor powered nanobots propelled by gas bubbles made from a reaction with the contents of the stomach in which they were deposited, these miniature machines have been successfully deployed in the body of a live mouse.

    The picayune robots used in the research were tubular, about 20 micrometers long, 5 micrometers in diameter, and coated in zinc. Once the mouse ingested these tiny tubes and they reached the stomach, the zinc reacted with the hydrochloric acid in the digestive juices to produce bubbles of hydrogen which then propelled the nanobots along like miniature rockets.

    Reaching speeds of up to 60 micrometers per second, the nanobots headed outwards toward the stomach lining where they then embedded themselves, dissolved, and delivered a nanoparticle compound directly into the gut tissue.

    According to the researchers, of all the nanobots deployed in the stomach of the mouse, those that reached the stomach walls remained attached to the lining for a full 12 hours after ingestion, thereby proving their effectiveness and robust nature.

    IN BRIEF

    In a world first, researchers from the University of California have reportedly delivered medicine directly to the stomach of a living organism using nanobots.

    NANOBOTS

    Scientists from the University of California are claiming that they have managed to deliver a medical payload directly into the gut tissue of a live organism using micro-motored nanobots.

    Notably, the team behind the work notes that these little, microscopic machines can travel inside of the living creature and deliver the medical treatment without causing any harmful side effects related to the small bots.

    Using micro-motor powered nanobots propelled by gas bubbles made from a reaction with the contents of the stomach in which they were deposited, these miniature machines have been successfully deployed in the body of a live mouse.

    The tubular nanobots, which are about 20 micrometers long, 5 micrometers in diameter, and coated in zinc, are propelled by gas bubbles that are produced once the zinc reacts with the hydrochloric acid in the digestive system.

    The nanobots travel at speeds of up to 60 micrometers per second and embed themselves in the stomach walls…where they remain after a full 12 hours.

    MICROMACHINES

    These nanobots have been previously used on organic tissue, but this marks the first time that it was tested on a living organism. The success of this test leads researchers behind the study to further explore the technology as a way to deliver targeted drugs in humans.

    However, as is always the case with medical breakthroughs, treatments must undergo rigorous testing and get approval from the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) before they can be used. possible application and testing on humans will need to be studied carefully before regulatory organizations give the go-ahead.

    So there is no guarantee that this will be implemented, but it is exciting research.

    The study, published in the journal ACS Nano, has yet to make announcements regarding the possibility of human-based trials or when such trials may begin.

    Extensive System of Caves Discovered Under the Pyramids

    Something extremely strange is happening in Giza, both under the pyramids and in the office of Dr. Hawass. Even skeptics of the "Hall of Records" from Atlantis are now forced to admit that something big is being hidden.

    In August of 2008 a system of caves was discovered under the pyramids. Certainly this is very big news. But look at the reaction of Dr. Hawass on his website:

    Surely Hawass is intimately aware of such a discovery. 

    So Why deny it? What is he trying to hide? Dies this have anything to do with the wall that is being built to surround the Giza complex? What secrets don't they want us to know?


    Inside Giza's cave underworld

    In December 2009, after denying that they existed, Egypt's leading Egyptologist, Dr Zahi Hawass, has had to admit that an excavation team under his charge is investigating an ancient tomb at the centre of claims regarding the alleged discovery of a cave underworld beneath the Pyramids of Giza.


    This is a surprising announcement for several reasons, not the least being that the "alleged" cave system has already been explored and photographed by British writer and explorer Andrew Collins. In August 2008, Collins announced that he had rediscovered the entrance to a previously unexplored cave system, entered via a mysterious tomb several hundred meters west of the Great Pyramid.

    Collins also found clues left in the 200-year-old memoirs of British diplomat and explorer Henry Salt. Salt wrote how, in 1817, he and Italian explorer Giovanni Caviglia had investigated cave "catacombs" at Giza for a distance of "several hundred yards" before coming across a "spacious" chamber. This chamber linked to three others of equal size, from which went various labyrinthine passages, one of which the Italian later explored for a distance of "300 feet further".

    Collins decided to look for these caves in the area where the unmarked star of Cygnus would align in relation to the three pyramids. He discovered a series of catacombs, as Henry Salt had described, but no sign of any caves. Then, as he was about to leave the site he noticed a break in the catacomb wall which eventually revealed the entrance to this huge complex network of caves.

    Excited by this monumental discovery, Collins immediately went to inform the Egyptian authorities and expected them to be as excited as he was. Wrong!


    Egyptian Authorities Try to Hide the Cave's Discovery

    According to Collins,

        "Dr Hawass [Secretary General for Egypt's Supreme Council of Antiquities] actually denied the existence of the caves. He has done this publicly. Why he has done this is a matter of debate.The most easiest explanation is that the preliminary investigations that he did following our visit to inform him of the discovery of this cave, in April 2008, meant that his people went in the tomb overlooked the entrance, as we did initially."

    Fifteen months later, bowing to the inquiries made by the press and Egyptian scholars, Dr Hawass confirmed that he has ordered an all-Egyptian team to explore the tomb at the center of the "controversy". Controversy? How could a discovery on such a scale be controversial?

       "We are clearing this system now, and it is a Late Period catacomb, like many others around Egypt," he stated this week. "There is no mystery about it, and there is no connection with esoteric topics. We will publish our results as part of our normal process."

    While applauding Dr Hawass's new interest in the site, Collins remains sceptical of his motives. 
       "We knew in August that he had started clearing the tomb," he said. "The excavations began almost immediately after knowledge of the cave discovery hit the internet."

    Collins is also unconvinced by Hawass's explanation of what he calls the "catacomb". "Does his use of the term 'system' now suggest that he has found and entered the caves, which he previously denied even existed? he asks.
    "My colleagues and I have examined photographic evidence of dynastic catacombs throughout Egypt, and these all appear to be carved by human hands." -Hawass

    But photographs don't lie.


    Collins says, "Those at Giza are natural, and penetrate the bedrock for many hundreds of metres, perhaps following the course of local geological faulting."
    Although Dr Hawass suggests there is no mystery surrounding the "catacomb", Collins suspects that the caves extend beneath the Second Pyramid, where ancient tradition puts the legendary Tomb of Hermes, Egypt's legendary founder. This is significant because Hermes is known as the Great Wisdom Bringer and Collins suspects that the chambers could possibly reveal something left behind by Hermes - something like the legendary Hall of Records.



    The Hall of Records - as Prophesied by Edgar Cayce

    According to the legendary psychic, Edgar Cayce, the pyramids were constructed by an ancient civilization that had its origins in Atlantis. This great civilization existed somewhere around 10,000 to 11,000 BC and was responsible for building the Great Pyramid, and for burying the lost history of mankind in a chamber called "The Hall of Records."
    "The records are one... (contain)... a record of Atlantis from the beginnings of those periods when the spirit took form or began the encasements in that land." - Cayce

    The records extend through the first destructions of that ancient civilization, the exodus of Atlanteans to other lands, and the final destruction of Atlantis. 

    They contain a description of the building of the Great Pyramid, as well as a prophecy of "who, what, where, would come [to make] the opening of the records."
    Collins says,

    "This has never been found. So perhaps it is still there, awaiting discovery, somewhere close to where Salt and Caviglia reached nearly 200 years ago.

    "I do believe that the caves that we have entered are part of a much larger complex that stretches right beneath the entire Giza plateau."

    Collins explains that the network of caves are natural and resemble Swiss Cheese. He believes they were formed long before the pyramids were built and suggests that they could be the reason the pyramids were built on this site. The early civilizations believed that part of the dying process involved traversing the so-called "underworld" and these caves might have been viewed as the entrance to this underworld. There is evidence of human activity in the deepest parts of the caves.


    Satellite images help verify the caves

    According to Collins, "Satellite images would tend to suggest that the caves... go all the way to the Second Pyramid." A little west of here archaeologists have found a collection of bird mummies. Since the constellation of Cygnus is historically depicted as a bird, specifically a swan, it is theorized that worshippers left mummified birds as an offering associated with this star configuration or perhaps to Socar, the bird-like figure that was the ruler of the underworld.

    From the entrance of the caves it appears that you can travel towards the Second Pyramid and directly under the spot where the Cygnus star, Deneb, would be aligned with the three pyramids and the wings of Cygnus. Is this where we will find the famed "Hall of Records"? Will the Egyptian government allow the world to know about what's really there? Why are they being so secretive?


    What's in the caves

    As of February 2010, Dr Zahi Hawass revealed that the system of caves was being probed by a host of experts.


    "We have experts in all fields working with us," he revealed this week. "Archaeologists, geologists, engineers, and architects, to name a few... I will be posting information about our excavation at Giza on my web site and will be publishing the results of our work in due course."
    Work at the cave-tomb, designated "NC2" by American Egyptologist George A. Reisner, has discovered two new rock-cut shafts and stairways leading into a maze of underground chambers and galleries never seen before in recorded history. Dr Hawass has suggested that they may date to the Old kingdom period. It appears that the caves were originally used as catacombs but leter were used for a bird necropolis, where mummified birds and other small animals were offered as sacrifices.

    A British man named Richard Gabriel and his partner Judith was able to gain access to the tomb and cave system and take a sequence of breathtaking pictures. The top 5 photos are from the actual tomb.

    Notice the many electrical cables (above, left) indicating the level of activity currently being undertaken in the caves (Are they taking out anything of interest? Are they covering up the signs of past civilizations? Are they hiding the entrances to the underground tunnels?). 

    Do you remember the YouTube videos about the night time excavations from under the Sphinx? They took out from the tunnels massive covered boxes and sent them to Cairo's airport. The boxes had been loaded into C-17's cargo airplanes belonging to the US Air Force. 

    The boxes had been transported ONLY during the night time! The officials denied it, of course!

    One photo displays rock simulacrum in the form of a snake's head, making sense of local folk stories which claim that the caves are haunted by a giant snake called el-Nahash (Not again! Every time we dig deep enough, there is always a reptilian figure lurking in the underground!). 

    Reference: Viewzone.com;
    What if the cave system leads somewhere deeper? Maybe to an underground city. The history of Atlantis is filled with stories of underground cities. A huge underground city has been discovered in Romania (it has 200 square kilometers).

    Inner-Earth Civilizations May Soon Reveal Themselves!

    Author and researcher David Wilcock told C2C that an alliance of ancient civilizations currently residing inside the Earth may be soon reveal themselves to the world.
     
    During the formation of all watery planets in the universe, he explained, hollow cavities form below the surface of the crust and have their own biome that features bacteria which gives off natural light.
     
    "What this means is that you can actually live inside caverns in the Earth that have visible light," he marveled.
    Based on his research, Wilcock said, "it appears that these cavities are used so that more advanced civilizations have a place they can live while they're managing what takes place on the surface."
     
    Over the span of the planet's history, he said, various advanced societies, such as the Atlanteans, took refuge underground in order to survive tumultuous times and ultimately settled in their new subterranean location.
     
    While the presence of these civilizations has been a part of UFO lore for decades, he contended that the government has direct knowledge of their presence due to accidentally discovering them via clandestine projects aimed at building secret underground bases.
     
     
    "They'll have these tunnel boring machines and sometimes they break through into someplace they're not supposed to go," Wilcock claimed, "and there's already people there."
     
    Citing the testimony of contactee Corey Goode, Wilcock revealed that the tenuous relationship between the Inner Earth people and those with knowledge of their existence has recently become fractured.
    "This military industrial complex had formerly worked with these people and had treaties with them and is now trying to kill them."
     
    As such, these Inner Earth societies have come together in response to the emerging threat and have turned to interstellar entities in the hopes of gaining help in the fight against the forces trying to destroy them.
     
    According to Wilcock, a long sought after meeting between the two groups was finally held and Goode was allowed to observe the exchange. The strange summit resulted in a stunning request from the interstellar entities.
     
    "The Inner Earth people came out of it quite shell-shocked," Wilcock said, "they have been asked to reveal themselves to us as part of disclosure."
     Should the subterranean societies comply with the request, he mused, "I think we are going to find out that underground bases are much more extensive than we thought and much more ancient."

    La planète rouge est-elle bleue ?

    Publié par Le Nouveau Paradigme

    Depuis près de 40 ans, une polémique fait rage concernant les véritables couleurs de la planète Mars. Notre voisine est-elle vraiment rouge, comme l'assurent la tradition et la NASA ? Ou son aspect est-il bien plus proche des paysages terriens ainsi que le laissent supposer certaines photos ?

    La NASA s’efforce-t-elle de nous cacher que la planète rouge est en réalité aussi bleue que la terre ? Cette nouvelle polémique aux relents complotistes est partie de photos prises par le Rover Mars Spirit où l’on découvre un ciel d’azur et un sol rocailleux à la teinte bleu pâle.

    © NASA/JPL-Caltech/MSSS La planète rouge est-elle bleue ?

    Le site Ufosighting Daily, qui a recensé d’innombrables « anomalies » martiennes, souvent délirantes mais quelquefois troublantes, a ouvert les hostilités :

       « 99 fois sur cent, la NASA publie des photos avec des fausses couleurs ou en noir et blanc. Mais, cette fois, voici une vue non modifiée du paysage martien. La couleur des rochers varie du blanc au bleu et le ciel sans nuage ressemble au ciel terrien. Je voulais juste vous révéler ce petit secret que la NASA ne veut pas que vous connaissiez. »

    Comme d’habitude, Ufosighting Daily n’y va pas avec le dos de la petite cuillère quand il s’agit d’accuser la NASA de cachotteries. Il n’en soulève pas moins un véritable problème : quelles sont les vraies couleurs de la planète Mars, sachant que les photos diffusées par l’agence spatiale américaine sont effectivement retouchées.

    En août 1976, Paris Match faisait sa Une sur la première photo du paysage martien envoyée par la sonde Viking. © DR

    La controverse ne date pas d’hier. Sur Futura Sciences, Olivier de Goursac, responsable de Mars Society France, rappelle qu’une image prise par la sonde Viking en 1976 avait suscité bien des commentaires : les scientifiques ont fourni à la presse une photo retouchée pour compenser les défauts des capteurs de la sonde. Beaucoup trop retouchée : sur le clichés parus dans les journaux et magazines, le ciel apparaît pratiquement bleu… La NASA a voulu rectifier le tir en publiant un second tirage censé présenter les véritables couleurs martiennes, plus conformes à la tradition. Mais le mal était fait : beaucoup de personnes restent convaincues que c’est la première photo qui est authentique.

           "Pourquoi le ciel de Mars serait-il rouge alors que l’atmosphère est beaucoup moins dense ?"

    Pour clore le débat, Olivier de Goursac présente « la preuve des vraies couleurs de Mars ! »sous la forme d’un comparatif entre la mire de couleurs avant l’embarquement sur Mars et la même mire visible sur la planète rouge au début de la mission : « le carré bleu vire au violet sur Mars car la caméra n'a pas de réponse spectrale régulière et laisse passer du rouge et de l'infrarouge: bleu + rouge = violet Il faut donc que le carré bleu tire vers le violet pour que les couleurs de Mars soient bonnes ! »

    Ce à quoi le conspirationniste aguerri aura beau jeu de rétorquer : « Qu’est-ce qui empêcherait la NASA de truquer après coup les couleurs de la mire ? » 

    Car la question fondamentale demeure : pourquoi le ciel de Mars serait-il rouge alors que l’atmosphère est beaucoup moins dense ?

    Pour le spécialiste de l’optique et astronome amateur, Serge Bertorello, « le ciel devrait apparaître sur Mars avec des teintes appartenant à une palette de bleus plus ou moins pâles et peut-être avec une teinte rose aux moments du lever et du coucher du Soleil » explique-t-il dans un article très détaillé publié sur son site.

    La raison généralement avancée pour expliquer sur la teinte ocre du ciel martien est la présence d'une grande quantité de poussière rouge en suspension dans l’atmosphère. Mais, poursuit Serge Bertorello, « pour que des poussières colorent sensiblement le ciel, il faudrait qu'elles soient constituées avec des grains de grosse taille (au moins une centaine de micromètres). Or l'atmosphère de Mars est si peu dense qu'il est invraisemblable qu'elle transporte des poussières aussi grosses en grande quantité. »

    A l’origine, les photos de Mars présentant un ciel bleu étaient accompagnées de la mention « false colors » (fausses couleurs) signifiant que les images n’avaient pas été rectifiées pour mieux correspondre à la réalité martienne. Un peu comme si un magazine prévenait ses lecteurs de ne pas faire confiance à la photo d’une star trop belle pour être honnête et que les seuls clichés dignes de foi sont ceux où des rides et un peu d’embonpoint ont été rajoutés sur Photoshop…

Sutter is also host of the podcasts "Ask a Spaceman" and "RealSpace," and the YouTube series "Space in Your Face." Sutter contributed this article to Space.com's Expert Voices: Op-Ed & Insights.

    Take a deep breath. 

    That air filling up your lungs, that oxygen pulled into your bloodstream, stoking your metabolic fire, making you possible, is old. Older than you, older than the Earth itself. That oxygen once lived in the heart of a star that is now long dead. That calcium in your bones? That iron in your blood? The same.

    Billions of years ago, there was no Earth, no sun, nor even a solar system. There was just a relatively featureless cloud of gas and dust, hundreds of light-years across. Pretty much in stable equilibrium, that cloud could persist for hundreds of thousands, or even millions of years. But given just a little nudge — perhaps by a nearby supernova going off, sending its blast wave echoing through the nascent cloud — it quickly fragmented, folding in on itself in a complicated tangle of knots and streams. 

    Pockets of gas pinch off and catastrophically collapse, in some cases reaching such incredible densities and pressures that nuclear fusion begins deep in the heart of a young system: This is the birth of a star . 

    The shattered remains of the cloud organize themselves into a disk. The disk spawns planets that cannibalize more material as they grow and compete for space around the new sun. In fits and starts and collisions, and in migrations and bursts of intense radiation, the leftover debris is cleared from the system, leaving a family: a star (maybe two), a few rocky planets, gas giants, asteroids and frozen leftovers in the outskirts. 

    A solar system is born.

    A few new elements breeze into the solar system over the millennia, but by and large, what the solar system was born with is all it has. 

    The elemental mixture of that primordial gas cloud determines the fate of the system. Not enough silicon? No rocky planets. Just a hint of oxygen? No liquid water on those planets. A bare handful of carbon? Nothing to use to build little critters to swim around in that water. 

    But how did this solar system's particular mixture of elements get in that gas cloud oh so many billions of years ago in the first place? To tell the truth, I already gave the answer: fusion. 

    In that newborn sun, and in its heart today, a nuclear fire rages. The crushing weight of the sun's own gravity — layer after endless layer of gas trying to squeeze itself into the center — encourages atomic nuclei to overcome their natural repulsion for each other and fuse, like every bad rom-com you've ever seen.

    The fusion process leaves a little bit of energy left over , and the countless fusion reactions are enough to power the sun's radiation for billions of years — and give Earth the warmth and light needed to make life possible. 

    The process just needs to start with hydrogen, a simple proton. And there is plenty of that in the earliest moments of the universe. All else follows. Every star in the sky, including Earth's own sun, is a massive, sleepless factory for creating new elements. Hydrogen to helium. Onward to carbon, nitrogen and oxygen. In more massive stars, the chain pushes even further, to include calcium, magnesium, neon and argon. All the way to iron and nickel.

    But there, the party stops. After iron and nickel, fusion doesn't produce energy anymore — it takes it. Fusion still happens, but there's nothing to stop the relentless gravitational collapse, no energy production to re-flate the star and balance the contraction. The infalling material tries to jam onto the core, is stopped by the solid iron ball at the center, and quickly retreats. In other words: boom!

    A supernova is one of the most fantastic displays of reckless energy seen across the universe . Billions of stars' worth of energy, wasted in a single flash lasting a few weeks. In that energetic inferno, anything is possible. Want to waste energy fusing some new heavy elements? Who cares — there's plenty to spare! Have some more! It's party time!

    It's in that furious explosion that the rest of the periodic table is filled out. What wasn't fused in the heart of a star is birthed in the star's death throes, in complicated dances of nuclei and stray neutrons. 

    This isn't just a cute bedtime story — this is science, after all, and it requires some evidence. The theory was sweated out in a landmark paper led by physicist William Fowler, who went on to receive a Nobel Prize for his efforts. 

    Today, scientists can identify what elements stars are made of, as each element leaves a distinct thumbprint in the starlight. Physicists can observe the fusion happening in the core of Earth's sun by capturing stray neutrinos, a byproduct of the fusion reaction, in detectors here on Earth. Researchers can examine supernova remnants to identify trace elements drifting through the broken clouds. Scientists can explain why some elements are more abundant in the universe than are others: If a particular chain reaction is more common in stars, then the element produced by that reaction will make its mark on the cosmos.

    And human beings can see how they really are made of stars — the ashes of long-dead stars, but stars nonetheless. 

    Those points of light in the night sky are connected to people in a deep and meaningful way. Human blood and bones are a part of the natural cycle of formation, birth, life and death of humanity's heavenly cousins. People come from stars and will return to the stars; every star dies, and in some fashion spreads its material back from where it came. And when the light from Earth's sun finally snuffs out, it will carry humanity's ashes back into the darkness, to be reshaped again into new worlds, and possibly new life.

    "X-Files" sur la Fox : cette série fait parfois écho aux fantasmes des ultra-conservateur

    Avatar de Kevin Alleno

    Par 
    Doctorant en science politique

    LE PLUS. 14 ans après la fin de la série, "X-Files" revient sur la Fox. Et le retour de Mulder et Scully était visiblement attendu : le premier épisode a réuni 16 millions de téléspectateurs. Pour Kevin Alleno, doctorant en science politique, la reprise de cette série en pleine la campagne électorale américaine a un sens : "X-Files" lui rappelle les fantasmes de certains conservateurs.

    Édité par Anaïs Chabalier 

    David Duchovny et Gillian Anderson dans "X-Files" (Fox Broadcasting Co.).

    "X-Files", série culte des années 90, revient à la télévision après 14 années d'absence. Ce programme diffusé par la Fox, réputée pour être conservatrice, apparaît politiquement quelque peu orienté.

    À bien y regarder, la série semble effectivement correspondre au "style paranoïaque" caractérisant la manière de faire de la politique des ultra-conservateurs.

    "Style paranoïaque" et ultra-conservatisme

    Avec le complot extra-terrestre placé au cœur de la série transparaît l'idée, chère aux ultra-conservateurs, que l’État est le problème. L'idée du complot, si elle est universelle, a toujours eu un grand succès dans l'histoire des États-Unis, surtout dans les franges extrêmes du conservatisme.

    Ainsi, la conjuration visant à anéantir les humains et à les remplacer par des extra-terrestres n'est pas sans rappeler le fantasme de certains mouvements conservateurs concernant une extermination programmée des protestants par les catholiques vers la fin du XIXe et le début du XXe siècle.

    Richard Hofstadter, historien du XXe siècle, assimila la droite radicale américaine à un "pseudo conservatisme" s'exprimant essentiellement par "le style paranoïaque". "X-Files", notamment à travers son personnage principal, l'illustre parfaitement. Le trait fondamental du "style paranoïaque" est ainsi de supposer :

    "L'existence d'un complot organisé autour d'un vaste réseau international, procédant de façon insidieuse, doté d'une efficacité surnaturelle et visant à perpétrer les actes les plus diaboliques qui soient." [1]

    Remplacer "communistes" par "extra-terrestres"

    L'efficacité surnaturelle est claire dans la série puisque la cabale est menée par des extra-terrestres bénéficiant de surcroît du concours du gouvernement américain. Hofstadter décrit également dans son ouvrage les postulats de base de l'ultra droite américaine :

    "D'abord, l'idée d'une conspiration permanente à l'œuvre depuis plus d'une génération […]. Deuxième affirmation : les hautes sphères de la bureaucratie gouvernementale ont été infiltrées par les communistes […]. Troisième et dernière assertion : un réseau d'agents communistes s'est introduit dans le pays [...], si bien que l'ensemble de l'appareil éducatif et religieux, la presse et les médias de masse s'emploient de concert à étouffer toute forme de résistance de la part des bons et loyaux américains" [2].

    Remplacez "communistes" par "extra-terrestres" et vous obtenez l'intrigue de '"X-Files".

    Mulder, Washington parano

    Toute la série est imprégnée de cette méfiance pour ne pas dire hostilité envers l’État, caractéristique de l'ultra-droite américaine.

    Autre élément amplifiant l'appartenance au "style paranoïaque" : l'appréhension de ce complot "en termes apocalyptiques" car "il en va de la naissance et de l'extinction de mondes, d'ordres politiques et de systèmes de valeurs tout entiers", en l'occurrence rien de moins que l'existence de l'humanité.

    Et Mulder est ce "membre de l'avant-garde […] capable en tant que tel de percevoir l'existence de la conspiration avant qu'elle ne s'impose comme une totale évidence auprès d'un public encore ignorant". "Le paranoïaque est un leader prêt au combat" nous dit Hofstadter [3].

    L'affaire se résume ainsi pour Mulder "à un affrontement entre le bien et le mal appréhendés comme deux absolus", interdisant de ce fait tout compromis. Le méchant de la série correspond aussi parfaitement à ce modèle. L'homme à la cigarette incarnant la conspiration est le "parfait modèle de méchanceté", "sorte de surhomme amoral : maléfique, omniprésent, puissant, cruel [...]" [4].

    Un autre détail symptomatique du "style paranoïaque" est "l'importance particulière attachée à la figure du renégat" illustrée dans la série par les informateurs de Mulder [5].

    Des clins d'œil qui font relativiser

    Enfin, le dernier élément rapprochant le personnage principal du "style paranoïaque" est sa "pédanterie", à savoir le "soin minutieux apporté" à sa démonstration.

    "Par leur nature même, ces conclusions invraisemblables exigent une quête héroïque de 'preuves' attestant que l'incroyable est la seule chose à laquelle on puisse croire" [6]. Dit autrement par Mulder : 

    "La vérité est ailleurs."

    Heureusement, certaines répliques ironiques et de nombreux clins d'œil historiques viennent relativiser cette matrice conservatrice. Ce qui nous évite, au passage, d'imaginer Mulder en électeur potentiel du Tea Party !

    The truth really IS out there: CIA releases thousands of declassified 'X-files' on aliens, flying saucers and other unexplained phenomena

    • The documents coincided with the return of The X-Files after 10 years
    • The organization said the top-secret documents would be interesting to both 'believers like Agent Mulder and skeptics like Agent Scully'
    • All of the documents are dated from the late 1940s to the 1960s
    • Some of the documents do not find an explanation for the UFO sightings
    • The CIA has always denied having any proper intelligence about aliens

    The CIA has released thousands of declassified documents on flying saucers, aliens and other unexplained phenomena. 

    'We've decided to highlight a few documents both skeptics and believers will find interesting,' the agency said on its website.

    The post continued: 'Below you will find five documents we think X-Files character Agent Fox Mulder would love to use to try and persuade others of the existence of extraterrestrial activity.'

    All of the documents are dated from the late 1940s to the 1960s, but were top-secret until now.

    One of the files attached to the post is a document from East Germany in 1952, where agents were called to investigate what witnesses described as a 'huge flying pan'.

    The object was said to have a diameter of about 15 meters, according to the document.

    Similar flying saucers were also spotted in North Africa and Spain, the report said.  

    'The picture [of the object] shows a diagonal stripe of diminishing width and lighter in shade than the sky over the dark bulk of a building cornice,' it was noted.

    Included with some of the documents were three pictures of the alleged extraterrestrials.  

    One of the photos - taken by British student Alex Birch in 1962 - claimed to show a group of flying saucers flying over the city of Sheffield in the UK.

    However the photo was proven to be a hoax. 

    The files also detail a case of flying saucers that were spotted over what was formerly Belgian Congo.

    The document reveals that two 'fiery discs' were seen over a uranium mine, and that the discs had 'glided curves and changed position many times'.

    It then adds: 'Suddenly, both discs hovered in one spot and then took off in a unique zigzag flight to the north east.

    'A penetrating hissing and buzzing sound was audible to onlooker below. The whole performance lasted 10 to 12 minutes.'

    An aircraft was then set to investigate the object, and got with meters of the saucer and according to the pilot, the inner core of it remained totally still while the a knob opening could be seen from the outside.

    The pilot then gave up his pursuit when the 'disc' appeared to disappear.

    Also contained in the files is the case in Socorro, New Mexico in 1964, when police officer Lonnie Zamoraspotted a large flame rise from the ground and pierce the sky above a remote patch of desert.

    He went to investigate and found a shiny object the size of a sedan perched on the hilltop, which was oval in shape and aluminium in color.

    The object then began to rise into the air and then sped away from him over the mountains and disappeared.

    One of CIA documents even gave a 10-point list on what to do if someone were to spot a purported UFO, which was posted to Twitter.

    'Take several pictures of the object; as many as you can. If you can, include some ground in the picture of the UFO,' the agency advised.

    However the CIA seemed to side more with Agent Dana Scully, the character played by Gillian Anderson, who for the entire succession of the cult Sci Fi series denounced her belief in the supernatural.

    In releasing the documents, the CIA said they were proving that 'there is a scientific explanation for UFO sightings'.    

    The CIA even tweeted a list of what to do in the event of sighting a possible UFO. It tagged The X-Files, Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny in the post

    The CIA has always denied having any proper intelligence about aliens.

    But it has often organized scientific panels to discuss the nature of these allegedly alien objects.

    The scientists typically concluded that 'the subject UFO is not of direct intelligence interest', the website RT reported.

    The release of the documents coincide with the long-awaited return of The X-Files on Sunday.

    The beloved show was rebooted by the Fox Network after 10 years, with its two original stars reprising their roles. 

    Stephen Bassett, executive director of the Paradigm Research Group, who is campaigning for the US government to admit aliens are visiting Earth, told The Mirror that the CIA appears to have used the return of The X-Files to their benefit. 

    'It appears the CIA used the revival of the X-Files franchise as a convenient time to remind the public the agency has, in fact, engaged the extraterrestrial presence issue in the past,' Bassett told the newspaper.

    'Post-disclosure the CIA will have substantial public relations issues as it has played a significant role in maintaining the truth embargo over six decades.

    'These recent postings could have an inoculative effect in service to the agency's future PR strategy.'

    Strange Cloud Formation Appears Over Portugal, People Call it “ The Hand of God ”

    The hand of God? This stunning yet somewhat terrifying cloud formation that appeared in the skies above Portugal looks like a fist from Heaven, which is why many have dubbed it the “hand of God.”
     
    The cloud took this unusual form of a fist from Heaven with a hand holding a fireball as it dominated the skyline across the island of Madeira earlier this week.
     
    The cloud was spotted by a very fortunate weather blogger, Rogerio Pacheco, who said that he “could not believe his luck when he looked up at the clouds while commuters made their way to work in the morning rush hour”.
     
    He posted some photos on his blog and it wasn’t long before his images were noticed and spread like wildlife across the Internet.
     
    Amazed onlookers began comparing the brilliant orange cloud to everything from a flaming fist of fury to the iconic comet featured in the classic video game Final Fantasy VII, notes the Daily Mail.
     
    As soon as I saw the sky, I was immediately intrigued and I just had to grab my camera to take photo,” said Pacheco. “For me, the cloud looks like an outstretched hand with a fireball“.

    Although its job is to search for powerful energies emanated by distant cosmic objects, ESA's INTEGRAL space observatory recently turned its eye toward Earth and saw our home planet's aurora glowing brightly with powerful X-rays.

    PHOTOS: Epic Auroras Throughout the Solar System

    The animation below is made from data acquired by INTEGRAL's IBIS/ISGRI instrument on Nov. 10, 2015. Although Earth isn't itself visible its position and northern rotational pole is noted by the light blue lines as the data were captured across 8-minute intervals. The X-ray emissions from auroras dancing above Russia, Canada, and Greenland are visible as bright red, yellow, and white flashes.

    Coincidentally these same auroral displays were also captured from low-Earth orbit by NASA astronaut Scott Kelly. The photo below was shared on Twitter by Kelly to mark one of the 15 sunrises ISS astronauts experience every day, as well as the completion of day 228 of his year-long mission aboard Station.

    Auroras are the result of charged particles streaming out from the sun getting caught up in Earth's magnetic field and "funneled" back down toward the poles, from where the magnetic field lines originate. When these particles collide with atoms in the atmosphere radiation is emitted across a wide range of the electromagnetic spectrum, including visible light.

    ANALYSIS: Getting Intimate with a Black Hole Behemoth

    Launched Oct. 17, 2002, ESA's International Gamma-Ray Astrophysics Laboratory (INTEGRAL) is a 4-ton, 16-foot (5-meter) -tall spacecraft designed to observe the universe in high-energy wavelengths, specifically gamma rays from supermassive black holes but also in X-ray and select optical wavelengths. It orbits Earth at distances ranging from 6,200 miles (10,000 km) to 87,000 (140,000 km), outside the most harmful and interfering energy of the radiation belts.

    On rare occasions INTEGRAL is aimed toward Earth to block out the background field and allow scientists to calibrate the instruments. It just so happened that this time Earth put on an X-ray performance of its own.

    ANALYSIS: Black Hole Wakes Up, Torments and Eats a Planet

    "Auroras are transient, and cannot be predicted on the timeframe that satellite observations are planned, so it was certainly an unexpected observation," said INTEGRAL Project Scientist Erik Kuulkers. "Although the original background X-ray measurements didn't go quite to plan this time, it was exciting to capture such intense auroral activity by chance."

    INTEGRAL is the result of an international collaboration between ESA and the U.S., Russia, the Czech Republic, and Poland, and includes instruments from research teams in Italy, France, Germany, Denmark, and Spain. Learn more about the INTEGRAL mission here.

    CERN dangers revealed – Paperclip Nazi’s and the Cosmology Cartel

    Dark Journalist and Dr. Joseph P. Farrell explores the deep political roots and global dangers of the controversial particle physics experiment by CERN called The Hadron Collider, which was set up in Geneva, Switzerland with a massive military style budget of over six billion dollars!

    Dr. Farrell's research exposes CERN's official story of the so-called "Atom Smasher" Hadron Collider Project, as being ostensibly created for peaceful scientific experiments in particle physics, and reveals that it is actually a dangerous advanced technology project set up for secret military purposes and is seeking the ability to manipulate matter on a galactic scale and possibly even open dimensional doorways.


    Strangelets Danger 

    He cites the massive disturbances in the magnetosphere of the earth when the Hadron Collider is turned on and outlines that it may have serious consequences for physical life on earth and a major impact on the rotation of the planet itself.

    We also will discover that voices in the scientific community have raised objections that CERN is unsafe due to the potential development of "Strangelets" a distorted potential byproduct of the matter smashing experiments that have been compared to mini black holes that suck in all dense matter and energy.

    He also shows the undeniable similarity between the CERN Hadron Collider and a Nazi Physics project called The Bell" that was an underground Torsion Physics project built by slave labor and overseen by the top Nazi Scientists to give them a master weapon to rule the world!

    Deep State Nazi Connections 

    Dark Journalist and Dr. Farrell investigate the history of CERN and demonstrate clear links of a post-war Nazi International through the figure of John J. McCloy , lawyer for notorious German corporate conglomerate IG Farben. McCloy was also the Chairman of the Council on Foreign Relations and became the American High Commissioner for post World War II Germany.

    In a controversial action, McCloy helped clear and vet over 70,000 Nazis (yes, 70,000!) helping to utilize their intelligence networks to set up the CIA.

    One of the major figures that he cleared was top Nazi legal theorist and prisoner of war Dr. Walter Hallstein who was eventually responsible for helping to set up CERN and who was also a key architect for developing the the Nazi plan for a European Federation that was eventually adopted as the blueprint for the European Union. McCloy, in a strange twist, also served on the Warren Commission to whitewash any Deep State connections to the JFK Assassination.

    JFK was famously committed to "Smashing the CIA into a thousand pieces" as a way to root out the Nazi infiltration of the agency and regain control over the government from suspected Nazi collaborators like CIA director Allen Dulles.

    Revealing, groundbreaking, shocking, unnerving, and rife with controversial, staggering implications of a massive covert military project hiding in plain sight.

    Monsterlijke gaswolk met kracht van twee miljoen zonnen ligt op ramkoers met aarde

    Monsterlijke gaswolk met kracht van twee miljoen zonnen ligt op ramkoers met aarde

    Een onzichtbare gaswolk van spectaculaire omvang ligt op ramkoers met de Melkweg. De gaswolk, die zich met meer dan 1,1 miljoen kilometer per uur voortbeweegt, bevat genoeg energie om twee miljoen nieuwe sterren te vormen.

    Mensen die nu leven hebben niets te vrezen, aangezien de botsing waarschijnlijk pas over 30 miljoen jaar gaat plaatsvinden, zo blijkt uit onderzoek dat is gepubliceerd in The Astrophysical Journal.

    De wolk is in 1963 ontdekt door de Amerikaanse astronoom Gail P. Smith, en later naar hem vernoemd. De Smith-wolk is door verschillende astronomen nauwkeurig onderzocht met behulp van de Green Bank Telescope en de Hubble-telescoop.

    Gehele avondhemel beslaan

    Er zijn aanwijzingen dat de Smith-wolk al eens dwars door de schijf van de Melkweg heen is gevlogen. Met behulp van de Hubble-telescoop hebben sterrenkundigen bepaald dat de wolk rijk is aan zwavel, wat erop wijst dat het gevaarte in de Melkweg is gevormd.

    Volgens astronomen is de gaswolk ongeveer 11.000 lichtjaar lang en 2500 lichtjaar breed. Als de wolk vanaf de aarde met het blote oog was te zien, zou hij de gehele avondhemel beslaan en 30 keer zo groot zijn als de volle maan.

    Spectaculaire explosie

    “Onze Melkweg bevat zo’n 100 miljard zonnen,” zei Andrew Fox van het Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore. “Als de wolk ermee in aanraking komt, zal er een spectaculaire explosie volgen, waarbij genoeg energie vrijkomt om twee miljoen nieuwe sterren te kunnen vormen.”

    Rond onze Melkweg zwermen honderden hogesnelheidswolken als de Smith-wolk. Het zijn waarschijnlijk overgebleven bouwstenen uit de tijd dat ons zonnestelsel nog in aanbouw was of de restanten van kleine sterrenstelsels die miljarden jaren geleden zo dicht langs de Melkweg zijn gescheerd, dat ze aan flarden werden getrokken.

    Astronomen proberen nog altijd te verklaren waarom de Smith-wolk de Melkweg ooit heeft verlaten.

    Nu ook Amerika in ban van vreemde geluiden ( VIDEO )

    Een paar weken geleden werd in Nederland over bijna niets anders gesproken dan de vreemde geluiden in de lucht. 

    Nu is het vooral de beurt aan de Amerikaanse oostkust waar vreemde geluiden worden gehoord en “sonic booms” waarbij alles schudt en trilt als bij een aardbeving. 


    Enkele dagen geleden ontvingen wij het volgende bericht van iemand die zich aan de oostkust van Amerika bevindt. 

    “Just wanted to let you know there are a series of loud sonic booms that are going on all across the east coast of the US, they are shaking the earth and everything”. 

    Een combinatie van vreemde geluiden en het gevoel alsof je midden in een aardbeving terecht bent gekomen, terwijl dat niet het geval is. 

    Enige weken geleden hoorde je ook in Nederland niets anders dan mensen die vreemde geluiden in de lucht hadden gehoord. Nu is het hier weer wat afgezwakt, maar in andere delen van de wereld duikt het nu dus weer op, zoals in Amerika. 

    Er lopen eigenlijk een aantal fenomenen door elkaar heen. We hebben de vreemde geluiden zoals we die in Nederland hoorden, maar wat men in Amerika ook hoorde waren zogenaamde “sonic booms” en het gevoel alsof men in een aardbeving terecht was gekomen omdat alles trilde. 

    Het standaard antwoord van de autoriteiten is altijd dat er ergens een vliegtuig door de geluidsbarrière is gebroken. 

    Wanneer er ergens een vliegtuig door de geluidsbarrière gaat dan zal dat echt niet langs de gehele Amerikaanse oostkust te horen zijn. 

    Een voorbeeld van wat er in Amerika waar te nemen was, is te zien in de volgende video: 

    Een paar mensen die in een auto zitten, een heel merkwaardig geluid horen in de lucht en een auto die heen en weer gaat waardoor zij ervan overtuigd zijn dat ze in een aardbeving terecht zijn gekomen. 

    Deze video is gemaakt in New Jersey en het bericht dat wij ontvingen is afkomstig uit South Carolina. 

     

    Enkele dagen daarvoor werden bewoners van El Salvador opgeschrikt door dezelfde “sonic booms” en vreemde geluiden. 

    Al met al duurde dit ongeveer drie uur en een voorbeeld van hoe het daar klonk, is te horen in de volgende video. 

     

    Het verschijnsel van “sonic booms” zoals zich dat enkele dagen geleden in Amerika voordeed, hadden we ook in 2013 in ons land en wel in Friesland. 

    Ook toen stond overal de telefoon roodgloeiend van mensen die meldingen maakten van aardbevingen terwijl er geen aardbeving was. 

    "Daar zat ik dan vanmiddag. Thuis in Friesland, rustig een beetje aan het werk achter mijn laptop. Totdat gerommel aan de tussendeur mij liet schrikken. De honden sloegen direct aan. Het gegrom en geblaf, maakte mij nog angstiger. Het leek net of er iemand aan de andere kant aan de deur aan het schudden was. Er flitste van alles door mijn hoofd.“Staat de achterdeur nog open? Is er iemand via de achterkant bij ons naar binnen gedrongen? Hellup!!” 

    Verschrikt bel ik mijn partner om te vragen wat het kon zijn. Ik, angsthaas als ik ben, durfde niet zomaar te gaan kijken. Hij zei dat het misschien tocht zou kunnen zijn die door de brievenbus kwam. Nee dus, want die zit potdicht. Nou ja, het zal wel niks zijn, want als er daadwerkelijk iemand in huis bleek te zijn, dan had hij of zij de tussendeur wel opengedaan, lijkt me. 

    Ineens werd alles duidelijk toen dit bericht mij onder ogen kwam. Een soort aardbeving in Friesland. Trillingen van lucht, maar niemand weet waarvan of waardoor het komt. Bizar, maar waar. Het moet niet gekker worden. Ik was niet de enige die zich lam is geschrokken, want ook op Twitter brak de hel los, zo het schijnt. Wel bijzonder om nu te kunnen zeggen dat ik een “aardbeving” heb overleefd. Hallelujah!" 

    Wat we toen in Friesland zagen, was klaarblijkelijk een voorproefje voor wat er verder nog ging komen. Datzelfde fenomeen, gekoppeld aan de steeds verder toenemende vreemde zoem- of bromgeluiden, doet zich nu overal ter wereld voor. 

    In de volgende video wat voorbeelden van vreemde geluiden zoals die overal ter wereld in de maand januari te horen waren. Voorbeelden uit Amerika, Canada, Engeland, Schotland, Dubai, Singapore, Noorwegen en Polen.



    Misschien ook weer niet zo vreemd allemaal als je bedenkt dat er een mini zonnestelsel onze kant op komt.

    CIA Releases Some Of The Best UFO Sightings In The World

    George Stock UFO

    George Stock of Passaic, New Jersey has apparently snapped a series of pictures of a mysterious disc on July 29, 1952.

    With the CIA highlighting the top secret investigations it implemented in the 1940s and 1950s, a series of historical UFO sightings has been released, including one of Mr Stock’s pictures.

    For some reason, the US intelligence agency uploaded some of its formerly secret UFO case files to its website. UFO conspiracy theorists have been accused the CIA has been accused of a major cover up involvement to hide the evidence of ET life from the public.

    George Stock UFO

    Mr Stock stayed in his yard with a friend when they reportedly noticed the object in the sky at around 4:30 pm. He ran inside to his house to get his camera, before shooting five photos of the strange flying object.

    Flying at approximately 200 feet before it flew away at a very high speed, the witnesses described the object as solid and metallic with a transparent domed top.

    The two friends said it had a blue to grey color and around 10 meters across. It made no noise, the pair further claimed.

    No substantial evidence to give absolute conclusion over the pictures. One of the speculations was that the apparent UFO could have been an elaborate hoax with the help of a saucer and an upturned teacup.

    The CIA may not be just interested in UFO sightings above the American sky. The CIA also posted another image online involving a fleet of dark-looking flying saucers taken over Sheffield, in northern England, in 1962. Investigators and the media remained baffled of the saucers’ identity for ten years until the perpetrator of the hoax confessed everything.

    Then 24-year-old salesperson, Alex Birch, admitted in October 1972 that he and two friends were responsible for the deception. Birch was a 14-year-old schoolboy then. He revealed that they painted five flying saucers on the  glass and photographed them to give an impression of UFOs in the air.

    The CIA also published an image of a massive, bright, strange-looking object that allegedly snapped on October 20, 1960, over Minneapolis in Minnesota. It is difficult to determine the object in the image, but it is believed to show a cloaked UFO – a term that applies to a flying saucer when it hides through the clouds to conceal itself.

    Colorado is known for its glowing orbs that come and go above the mountain ranges. Colorado Police have recorded them, mayors have reported seeing them and thousands of eyewitnesses have seen them at the same time, and yet, the US government has continued to deny that they exist. Aliens are real. Don't believe it...know it.

    News states:

    HOOPER, Colo. -- As part of the new series "Colorado’s Unexplained Stories," we’re taking a trip four hours south of Denver to the San Luis Valley. The area is nicknamed "The UFO Hot Spot of America." Apparently, there are more UFO sightings there than anywhere else in America. Locals refer to Highway 17, which cuts through the valley, as "The Cosmic Highway." If you take the highway into Hooper, you’ll eventually pass by an oddly shaped dome-like structure known as "The UFO Watch Tower." It was created by Judy Messoline 15 years ago. “What I find is we get people here because they need a place to talk about it and especially ones that have had experiences. Especially abductees,” Messoline said. Ask anyone who lives in the Hooper area if they’ve ever seen anything weird in the sky and chances are each one of them will tell you "Yes." Their experiences inspired Messoline to create the tower. It features plenty of things, including a log book where people can write their run-ins with the unknown. “I had an air traffic controller from DIA come in who said they get six to eight UFO reports from pilots every month. Now figure that one out,” Messoline said with a chuckle.

    News states:
    Are we alone in the universe? Everyone has a theory - but for Sue Sill, there’s only one answer. Sue, 57, of Outlane, claims she’s had many encounters with UFOS - and believes she was abducted in 2010. She says Huddersfield is a hotbed of activity and has filmed UFOs in the sky all around the town. Her latest experience was just last month, when she filmed a light in the sky above her home. She said: “I was in my kitchen with my sister-in-law Colleen, who has seen quite a lot of things with me. She said, ‘there’s something over the top of your house again - a bright light in the sky.’” Sue has been an avid UFO spotter for most of her life and in 2010 had an experience she describes as an abduction, around the same time crop circles were found at Castle Hill.She said: “I was sorting my things out for the morning and running a bath. I walked back into the bedroom and it was like I had gone into a trance.


     “I sat down on the bed and the next thing, some figures appeared. They were really small and they had black skin or were wearing black suits. “They had long, thin arms and their faces were obscured, like a liquid. I was thinking, ‘oh God, what’s happening here?’ “They came to the side of the bed and something like a veil came over me. The next thing I knew I was in a space on a craft looking at Earth.“The craft was iridescent like a bubble, I could see everything around me. I was thinking, ‘how can I be looking at the Earth?’ “The creatures spoke with telepathy and were showing me the Earth. At once there was a massive explosion on Earth, like a mushroom, and my heart sunk. “When the creature put its hand on my shoulder it was like ET with a long middle finger. It was like it was feeding off my emotions. I remember the creature saying, ‘don’t worry, you will be all right’. “I didn’t feel they wanted to harm me or the people on Earth, I think they were concerned about what’s happening on Earth. We are destroying the planet.” Sue said all of a sudden she woke up fully dressed lying on the bed. Hours had passed since her last memories from her bedroom. She said: “I tried to get up and I couldn’t stand up. I felt sick. I tried to do my normal routine, getting ready for work, but it was like I was jetlagged. “I saw my neighbour and he asked me what was wrong. I said, ‘I think I’ve been abducted’. He just laughed. “I thought I was going crazy so I went to the doctor. He just looked at me and sent me straight to a psychiatrist, who said I was okay. I knew I was fine. More at source.

    MUFON’s Conclusion of a UFO Sighting in P.E.I. Disputed

    UFO over Canada

    Many theories have emerged to explain the UFO sighting, but national UFO group not rocked. The subject matter is a UFO sighting in June 2014 off P.E.I.’s North Shore.

    John Sheppard recorded an eight-minute video that showed bright lights in the sky over the Gulf of St. Lawrence. He was camping in the late spring of that year at Twin Shores campground when he shot the video.

    He submitted the footage to Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) of Canada, which investigated the sighting and concluded it was an unknown aerial vehicle.

    But many people are looking to debunk that conclusion. Canada’s Halifax president of the Royal Astronomical Society, Paul Gray, who has been taking photographs for 27 years, believes the thing in the Sheppard’s video is likely the 11:42 p.m. Air Canada flight approaching the Îles-de-la-Madeleine Airport. He explains the main runway of the airport is directly in line with the area of the North Shore where the filming is done.

    He further says that the aircraft’s landing lights are turned on ten to fifteen minutes prior arrival and visible up to 160 km away, making it possible for anybody on the P.E.I shore to see them.

    As for the light’s erratic behaviour, Gray says that if someone 10 to 20 miles from an airport uses a cell phone and holds it for 5 minutes or more while taking a video of the plane on approach, will also give a result that looks almost the same, which is a bright light bouncing around the screen.

    However, assistant director of MUFON Canada, Stu Bundy isn’t convinced with Gray’s explanation. He says that the director of MUFON B.C. is an astronomer and ex-pilot, and he doesn’t think it is an aircraft on approach.

    Bundy states their investigator looks into flight schedules out of the Charlottetown and Halifax airports that time of the night.

    Bundy also says that they can be wrong, but he stands by MUFON’s conclusion.

    A former worker at the P.E.I. National Park, Hugh McCormack, believes the video shows two parachute flares dropped from Canadian military aircraft, which he has witnessed during search-and-rescue training or regular exercises.

    Bundy says MUFON is glad to sift through all theories but adds “this is a very polarizing subject with many on both sides who believe they know the truth.”

    Ross Thompson, a Thunder Cove cottage owner, offers a third theory. He reveals that he once thought he saw a UFO in the summer of 2014 between his cottage and the water late one evening. But after some investigations, he found out that it was a large drone with multi-coloured lights operated by a cottage renter in the area.

    Thompson says he sees red, blue and white lights, plus another one bright light. It flies very similar to the man’s video- moves up and down fast and at approximately the same altitude to the one in the video, says Thompson.

    Bundy says they consider the possibility of a drone, but one of MUFON’s field investigator, who owns a drone company, states that it doesn’t have any characteristics or not many of a drone.

    Air Force Jet Shoots Down A UFO?

    Rajistan-ufo-metal

    A UFO was shot down after it was picked up on the radar; Air Force officials have announced. A Su-30 MKI fighter jet of an Indian Air Force in Barmer, Rajistan has reportedly intercepted an unidentified flying object on January 26, 2016.

    The object on radar was a balloon-shaped object and triggered an alert. According to the IAF, the Indian Air Force (IAF) radar picked up an unidentified balloon-shaped object between 10:30 and 11 am. Then an IAF fighter was ordered to intercept the object and bring it down. Debris from the object has been recovered and subjected to further investigation.

    Some locals speculated that the object was a meteorological weather balloon from Pakistan or India. But the IAF has yet to confirm the object’s identity.

    Located less than 300 miles from Jaipur, the Bamer village was first in the headline this month when locals reported seeing mysterious balls falling from the sky.

    ufo-crash

    The police investigators who checked the area for debris reportedly retrieved five triangle-shaped pieces of a metal object, which were turnover to the IAF.

    Many villagers had claimed that they heard a loud blast over a three-mile radius when the incident took place. Eyewitness Manoj Singh said he heard the explosion sound five times, and something went down after an aircraft flew by.

    Last year, nearby Sinleejageer villagers heard similar blasts also in January, and the incident was still under investigation.

    Some believe that the mysterious object was a spy equipment because it was above the border with Pakistan.

    Requiem for a Weeping, Doomed Galaxy

     

    Astronomy can be bittersweet. We’ve recently caught a glimpse of a tiny galaxy, some 54 million light-years away that is in the process of dying. As its life draws to a close, it’s weeping with tears of stars and ultraviolet light, which stream out for hundreds of thousands of light-years into the bleak emptiness of intergalactic space…

    Well OK, so maybe that’s all a bit melodramatic and melancholy, but the interesting fact remains that this is possibly the first time we’ve actually witnessed the death of a galaxy in detail. It’s known as IC 3418, part of the Virgo galaxy cluster, and its death knell is important news for astronomers.

    PHOTOS: Hubble’s Latest Mind Blowing Cosmic Pictures

    You see, extragalactic astronomy is a difficult art; looking at objects so distant and faint that it’s difficult to see them clearly can make it difficult to immediately recognize what we’re seeing out there. Couple that with the fact that we’re literally gazing out into the unknown. It’s a big universe out there, and we still understand only a very little of it. So when Jeffrey Kenney, ofYale University, recognized what he might be looking at it was an understandably exciting realization.

    “We think we’re witnessing a critical stage in the transformation of a gas-rich dwarf irregular galaxy into a gas-poor dwarf elliptical galaxy — the depletion of its lifeblood,” Kenney explained. Galaxies need all of their gas to form stars. Without that gas, their star formation ceases, leaving them with a population of steadily aging stars that will eventually all die off.

    Astronomers categorize galaxies by the colors of light they emit. When undergoing a healthy amount of star formation, galaxies appear blue; young, hot stars shine brightly in blue to ultraviolet wavelengths of light. Older galaxies whose star formation days are over, however, appear much more red, leading some to refer to them as “red and dead.”

    But the actual transition, where a galaxy loses its gas and star formation stops (technically referred to as ‘quenching’) has been elusive to spot. “Until now, there has been no clear example of this transformation happening,” said Kenney, highlighting the importance of this discovery.

    Ultraviolet Tears

    Those ‘tears’ you can see in the image above actually show the way in which the galaxy is dying (incidentally, the scientists involved in this study are no less melodramatic, referring to them as fireballs). It’s undergoing a process known as ram pressure stripping.

    Intergalactic space is by no means empty. Instead, it’s full of a thin plasma made up mostly of hydrogen ions, known as the intergalactic medium, buffeted about by the gravitational pull of nearby galaxies. While it may be at pressures that are unfathomably low compared to what we’re used to on Earth, it’s enough that any galaxy feels some pressure as it drifts through intergalactic space — it’s perhaps easiest to think of it as an intergalactic wind.

    In the midst of galaxy clusters (containing numerous large galaxies and even more numerous dwarfs), that intergalactic plasma becomes denser — usually being referred to, technically, as ‘intracluster medium’. Heated to extreme temperatures by pure gravitational energy, this hot plasma shines brightly in x-rays. As gravity accelerates entire galaxies towards the center of these clusters, they feel this intergalactic wind more strongly.

    Eventually, it becomes too much, and as a galaxy falls towards the center of a cluster, its gas and dust are literally blown away. Only the heavier objects, like stars, are unaffected by this process, leaving a galaxy which has undergone ram pressure stripping in this way with no gas from which to form new stars.

    In the case of IC 3418, those tears aren’t actually tears at all, they’re huge globules of gas that have been blown out of the galaxy. And all of that gas is still forming stars! Newly formed, orphaned stars born in intergalactic space illuminate the globules in ultraviolet. Kenney and his colleagues note this as a sign of active ram pressure stripping occurring.

    However, since its collision with the Virgo cluster, this is almost certainly the last star formation that this ill fated galaxy is ever going to see. No new stars have formed in the core of IC 3418 for over 200 million years.

    While poor little IC 3418 is not a new discovery by any means, the paper entitled “Transformation of a Virgo Cluster Dwarf Irregular Galaxy by Ram Pressure Stripping: IC3418 and its Fireballs” (due to be submitted to the Astrophysical Journal) is the first to argue the case that it is, in fact,doomed.

    “It’s gratifying to find a clear example of an important process in galaxy evolution,” continued Kenney, true to the spirit of any good scientist. “I enjoy digging through evidence to assemble a story about what happens to galaxies. I’ve come to think of myself as an intergalactic forensic pathologist — someone who studies the bodies of galaxies seeking evidence of traumatic events responsible for the present state of the galaxy.”

    Galaxies come in all shapes and sizes, but can generally be grouped into easily identifiable regular shapes, such as the elegant spirals or run-of-the-mill ellipticals. And then there are the irregular galaxies, which account for roughly a quarter of known galaxies, that are just kinda messy.

    ANALYSIS: Galaxy Grows Monstrous X-Ray Tail

    In this recent Hubble Space Telescope observation, one such irregular galaxy, located around 16 million light-years from Earth, has been observed. It looks like a loose collection of stars that have been thrown together and shuffled, like my end-of-semester university dorm room. But this galaxy, called NGC 5408, isn't just a scattering of stars, it's a whole galaxy and it's a galaxy with some interesting astronomical history.

    Originally discovered by British astronomer and mathematician John Herschel in June 1834, NGC 5408 was presumed to be a planetary nebula -- a gaseous cloud of gas generated by a dying star. But as astronomical optics improved, its true nature was revealed; NGC 5408 is an entire galaxy living by its own rules, refusing to conform to a regular shape.

    ANALYSIS: Requiem for a Weeping, Doomed Galaxy

    According to a NASA news release, NGC 5408 is notable for its ultraluminous X-ray source, known as NGC 5408 X-1. This class of object could be the signature of an intermediate-mass black hole, one of the most sought-after astrophysical objects in the cosmos.

    Intermediate-mass black holes (or IMBHs) are the "middleweight" black holes that are thought to be the missing evolutionary link between puny stellar mass black holes and the gargantuan supermassive black holes. They are, however, very hard to find and astronomers are currently keeping tabs on ultraluminous X-ray sources in the hope that they may signal the presence of these mid-sized black holes.

    THIS BIZARRE IMAGE OF A 'HUMANOID' WAS TAKEN DURING AN ALIEN ABDUCTION, CLAIMS WOMEN

    An unnamed woman claims 40 mysterious pictures, including one which appears to show a humanoid being, appeared on her mobile phone after she "lost time" to what she thinks was an alien abduction in her home. 
     
    Her claims have been reported to the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON), a recognised global alien and paranormal investigation organisation, which also keeps a database of sightings and incidents.
     
     In a report to MUFON she said asked the organisation to look at pictures she says were taken by beings and appeared on her phone. 
     
     
    She said she woke in the bathroom in foetal position
     
     
    The woman claims to have no idea how thee images got on her phone.
     
     She said: "I believe I was abducted that night."
     
     The woman said she was at home in a condominium in Plymouth, Hancock County, Illinois, USA, when she had a row with her boyfriend who chose to sleep in his van on the driveway. 
     
    She said: "I was lighting a cigarette on the stove and had a scratch off ticket in my hand. 
     
    "The next thing I know I'm waking up on the floor of my bathroom in foetal position. 
     
    "The cigarette I had and ticket were on the floor in the kitchen apparently I'd dropped them.
     
     
    Sceptics say that people who claim to be abducted have no evidence but missing time.
     
     
    MUFON•IG 
     
    She says they could only have come from "another world"
     
    When you truly look at the detail you see they are other worldly and cannot be faked. 
     
    Woman who claims she was abducted 
     
    She said a few days later she looked at her phone and found the 40 pictures "that neither she nor her boyfriend had taken." 
     
    She said: "When you truly look at the detail you see they are other worldly and cannot be faked." 
     
    The woman posted just ten of the pictures with her report to Mufon. 
     
    Nine of them appear to be blurred lights or colour, but one includes a humanoid which appears to be laying down with an alien-like face, although the picture is of poor quality. 
     
    The rest of the images could be simply blurred images of a light source taken in the dark. 
     
     
     
    She did not comment on who or what she thought the human like figure was or if it could have been her boyfriend snapped by someone unknown. 
     
    It has already been picked up by some uFO websites which have described the images as extremely creepy. 
     
    Sceptics argue that most claims of alien abduction include no real evidence of anything actually happening, other than the "abductee" losing time and then deducing they must have been taken by something

    De aarde bestaat eigenlijk uit twee planeten

    De aarde is ooit frontaal op een andere planeet gebotst. Die planeet, Theia geheten, overleefde de botsing niet en barstte uit elkaar.

    Uit een deel van de brokstukken van Theia is de maan ontstaan, zo zeggen Amerikaanse wetenschappers. Een ander deel is opgenomen door de aarde, waardoor onze planeet eigenlijk uit twee planeten bestaat.

    Vingerafdruk

    Wetenschappers dachten altijd dat de aarde en Theia elkaar hadden geschampt, maar concluderen nu dat het om een frontale botsing ging. Ze schrijven over hun bevindingen in het blad Science.

    Onderzoekers van de Universiteit van Californië in Los Angeles vergeleken de chemische ‘vingerafdruk’ van zeven maanstenen met die van vulkanisch gesteente uit het binnenste van de aarde. De stenen bleken zuurstofatomen te bevatten die precies hetzelfde zijn samengesteld. Volgens de wetenschappers moeten ze daarom dezelfde oorsprong hebben.

    Enorme kracht

    Om dat mogelijk te maken moet er bij de botsing een enorme kracht zijn vrijgekomen. Daaruit leiden de onderzoekers af dat de botsing tussen de aarde en Theia frontaal moet zijn geweest.

    Een andere theorie is dat Theia destijds langs de aarde is gescheerd en daarbij in stukken uit elkaar is gevallen. Maar in dat geval zouden de stenen op de maan moeten verschillen van het gesteente op aarde, omdat ze een andere afkomst hebben.

    Pluto's Surface Has a Surprising Amount of Water Ice (Photo)
    These maps of water ice on Pluto's surface were created using data captured by NASA's New Horizons spacecraft during its flyby of the dwarf planet on July 14, 2015. The map at left is an early effort; the one at right used modeling techniques to achieve greater sensitivity.

    Water ice is surprisingly abundant on Pluto's surface, a new map of the dwarf planet reveals.

    Scientists created the map using data collected by NASA's New Horizons spacecraft during its epic flyby of Pluto last July.

    The new map is more sensitive than an earlier version also produced using flyby observations, and thus shows more water ice — the dwarf planet's bedrock material — cropping up across Pluto's surface than had been seen previously, NASA officials said.

    "But despite its much greater sensitivity, the map still shows little or no water ice in the informally named places called Sputnik Planum (the left or western region of Pluto’s 'heart') and Lowell Regio (far north on the encounter hemisphere)," NASA officials wrote in a statement Thursday (Jan. 28). "This indicates that at least in these regions, Pluto's icy bedrock is well hidden beneath a thick blanket of other ices such as methane, nitrogen and carbon monoxide."

    New Horizons zoomed within just 7,800 miles (12,550 kilometers) of Pluto on July 14, 2015, returning history's first up-close looks at the dwarf planet and its five moons.

    The new and old water-ice maps were both made using infrared-light observations captured by New Horizons' Ralph/Linear Etalon Imaging Spectral Array (LEISA) instrument, at a distance of about 67,000 miles (108,000 km) from Pluto, NASA officials said.

    New Horizons is currently zooming toward a small object about 1 billion miles (1.6 billion km) beyond Pluto called 2014 MU69. If NASA approves and funds a proposed extended mission, the spacecraft will study 2014 MU69 up close on Jan. 1, 2019. 

    Pluto Quiz: How Well Do You Know the Dwarf Planet?
    Pluto, the most famous dwarf planet in our solar system, underwent a well-publicized (and somewhat controversial) reclassification that took away its title as the ninth and most distant planet from the sun. So, how well do you know this fascinating world?
    New Horizons is also still beaming home the many photos and measurements it captured during the July 14 flyby. All of the close-encounter data should be on the ground by this coming fall, mission team members have said.

    Alien Species to replace humans by 2100 says SETI Researcher

    According to statements from a senior SETI astronomer, due to the vast advancements in different science and technology, humans could cease to be the dominant species on Earth as life could someday take a toll on humans with Alien beings replacing us on Earth, and all of this by 2100.

    Seth Shostak of the SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) Institute in Mountain View, California believes that our technology is advancing at such pace that soon we will have designer babies and AI (Artificial Intelligence) on Earth, leading to the creation of a new DOMINANT species on planet Earth. According to Shostak, the advanced in these two fields could soon lead towards the emergence of an ‘alien species’ in the next century.
     
    Shostak wrote in January 2016 a different kind of article titled “Could This Be Humanity’s Last Century?” which takes a totally different approach on things. His writings are basically a possible ‘crash-course’ as to what life will look like in the next century or so, given the pace technology and science are advancing.
     
    “But what about the 21st century? What will your kids and grandkids do that will still be important a thousand years from now?” he argued.
     
     
    Shostak argues that he didn’t mention the numerous threats present on Earth today, such as terrorism or climate change, he rather focused on the future making mention to a possible outcome that not only he but other scientist have openly spoken about.
     
    Not long ago, speaking at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) AeroAstro Centennial Symposium in October, Musk described artificial intelligence as ‘biggest existential threat’ to our species.
     
    He said: ‘I think we should be very careful about artificial intelligence. If I had to guess at what our biggest existential threat is, it’s probably that. So we need to be very careful with artificial intelligence.’
     
    ‘I’m increasingly inclined to think that there should be some regulatory oversight, maybe at the national and international level, just to make sure that we don’t do something very foolish.’
     
    ‘With artificial intelligence, we’re summoning the demon. You know those stories where there’s the guy with the pentagram, and the holy water, and … Is he sure he can control the demon? Doesn’t work out.’
     
    “The third thing you can expect before the year 2100 is the development of generalized artificial intelligence,” Shostak said.
     
    Shostak seems to share the views bright minds such as Musk and Hawking have on the future of mankind. The SETI astronomer mentioned three things that according to him, can happen in the next 100 years on Earth. Shostak talked about how mankind will understand the DNA sequences and the molecular level of biology. He also believes that with advancements in technology, medicine, and several sciences, mankind will be able to cure numerous diseases that are deemed as incurable today.
     
    “But our efforts won’t be limited to merely fixing ourselves; we’ll also opt for improvement. You may hesitate to endorse designer babies, but hot-rodding our children are as much on the horizon as the morning sun,” Shostak said referring to biotechnology and gene editing.
     
    Shostak believes that re-engineering our children will create something humanity has never seen, creating drastic changes in the ‘evolutionary path’ of our species.
     
    Shostak also mentioned space and how humans are set to explore the vast frontiers of the cosmos searching for intelligent life and valuable resources that are scarce here on Earth but abundant on other planets and celestial bodies through the universe.
     
    With scientific advancements like these, the Homo sapiens that walked the Earth for 50,000 years might be unrecognizable in the next 100 years. He added that these changes may not happen in this century but it may happen in the next 1,000 years.

    UFO Barely Misses US Army Helicopter [Video]

    In 1973, the crew of an Army Helicopter encountered a UFO and subsequently won $5,000 for “the most scientifically valuable report of the year.”
     
    Such a large number of sightings took place in October 1973 that the period is often referred to as the Great UFO Wave. It’s fortunate that one of them was witnessed by a crew of credible witnesses.
     
    On October 18, at approximately 10:30 p.m., an Army Reserve Bell UH-1 (Huey) helicopter took off from Port Columbus, Ohio. It was headed for Cleveland Hopkins Airport, about 100 miles to the north. Its crew consisted of four men: Captain Lawrence J. Coyne, First Lieutenant Arrigo Jezzi, Sergeant John Healey and Sergeant Robert Yanacsek.
     
     
    The helicopter climbed to an altitude of 2,500 feet and was cruising at a speed of 90 knots. Atmospheric conditions were ideal and a clear sky allowed for optimum visibility.
     
    As they got closer to their destination, Sgt. Healey noticed a red light to their west, flying the opposite way. Two minutes later, he saw a similar light, this time far in the south-east horizon. He got the chance to observe it for a while but, like the other crew members, Healey thought it was nothing more than distant air traffic.
     
    About half a minute later, Yanacsek spotted the mysterious light had changed course and was now heading towards the helicopter. Captain Coyne took over the Huey’s controls and began a rapid descent. He also contacted the nearby Mansfield control tower, as he was unable to establish radio communications with the unknown aircraft. Unfortunately, radio contact with the tower soon failed and could not be established again.
     
    In the meantime, the red light had increased in intensity and was still heading on a collision course. Coyne therefore increased the helicopter’s rate of descent and airspeed.
     
    At 1,700 feet I braced myself for the impact with the other craft, Coyne told United Press International reporters. It was coming from our right side. I was scared. There had been so little time to respond.
     
    The thing was terrifically fast.
     
    The crash seemed imminent when the object simply stopped and assumed a hovering position above and in front of the Huey. It was close enough for the airmen to distinguish some of its features.
      
    The object was a metallic gray cigar-shaped craft, with “a suggestion of windows ” on the top and red light emanating from its bow. Another white light appeared on its rear side and a green “pyramid shaped” followed it. The airmen said the green beam behaved like a directional spotlight.
     
    We looked up and saw it stopped right over us, Coyne said. It had a big, gray metallic-looking hull about 60 feet long. It was shaped like an airfoil or a streamlined fat cigar. There was a red light on the front. The leading edge glowed red a short distance back from the nose. There was a center dome. A green light at the rear reflected on the hull.
     
    The green beam of light passed over the helicopter canopy, bathing the cockpit in an eerie green light. The airmen were bewildered as their helicopter began climbing by itself. The tractor beam was in control.
     
    I had made no attempt to pull up. All controls were set for a 20-degree dive. Yet we had climbed from 1,700 to 3,500 feet with no power in a couple of seconds with no g-forces or other noticeable strains.
     
    After about ten seconds, the UFO suddenly switched off the green beam and began accelerating to the west. In a few minutes, it had disappeared over the horizon. Lieutenant Jezzi approximated its speed at more than 500 knots (570 mph).
     
    Despite traveling that fast, it made no sound at all, and produced no air turbulence. These aspects suggest it was equipped with something other than conventional propulsion systems. Its ability to pull the Huey into a rapid ascension demonstrates the effective use of antigravity.
     
     
    After the unidentified object lost interest, Captain Coyne and his crew became aware of their altitude and managed to safely descend to 2,500 feet. Radio contact with Akron-Canton Airport and the rest of their flight was uneventful.
     
    Their UFO encounter would become one of the most well-documented cases and one of the most reliable sightings. When questioned, the four men gave similar descriptions of the event and provided similar sketches. As further confirmation of the incident, ground witnesses reported seeing a mysterious light in the sky.
     
    More than forty years later, this UFO encounter is still fascinating and still unexplained.

    Furnished with the sworn testimony of an eyewitness, Oscar Linke, a 48-year-old German and former mayor of Gleimershausen, West Berlin intelligence officers have begun investigating a most unusual “flying saucer” story. According to this story, an object “resembling a huge flying pan” and having a diameter of about 15 meters landed in a forest clearing in the Soviet Zone of Germany.
     
    Oscar Linke along with his wife and six children witnessed an extraordinary UFO sighting in East Germany in 1952.
     
    Linke and his 11-year-old daughter, Gabriella, made the following sworn statement before a judge:
     
    “While I was returning to my home with Gabriella, a tire of my motorcycle blew out near the town of Hasselbach. While we were walking along toward Hasselbach, Gabriella pointed out something which lay at a distance of about 140 meters away from us. Since it was twilight, I thought that she was pointing at a young deer.
     
    “I left my motorcycle near a tree and walked toward the spot which Gabriella had pointed out. When, however, I reached a spot about 55 meters from the object, I realized that my first impression had been wrong. What I had seen were two men who were now about 40 meters away from me. They seemed to be dressed in some shiny metallic clothing. They were stooped over and were looking at something lying on the ground.
     
    “I approached until I was only about 10 meters from them. I looked over a small fence and then I noticed a large object whose diameter I estimated to be between 13 and 15 meters. It looked like a huge frying pan.
     
    “There were two rows of holes on its periphery, about 30 centimeters in circumference. The space between the two rows was about 0.45 meters. On the top of this metal object was a black conical tower about three meters high.
     
    “At that moment, my daughter, who had remained a short distance behind me, called me. The two men must have heard my daughter’s voice because they immediately jumped on the conical tower and disappeared inside.
     
    “I had previously noted that one of the men had a lamp on the front part of his body which lit up at regular intervals.
     
    “Now, the side of the object on which the holes had been opened began to glitter. Its color seemed green but later turned to red. At the same time I began to hear a slight hum. While the brightness and hum increased, the conical tower began to slide down into the center of the object. The whole object then began to rise slowly from the ground and rotate like a top.
     
    “It seemed to me as if it were supported by the cylindrical plant which had gone down from the top of the object, through the center, and had now appeared from its bottom on the ground.
     
    “The object, surrounded by a ring of flames, was now a certain number of feet above the ground.
     
    “I then noted that the whole object had risen slowly from the ground. The cylinder on which it was supported had now disappeared within its center and had reappeared on the top of the object.
     
    “The rate of climb had now become greater. At the same time my daughter and I heard a whistling sound similar to that heard when a bomb falls.
     
    “The object rose to a horizontal position, turned toward a neighboring town, and then, gaining altitude, it disappeared over the heights and forests in the direction of Stockheim.”
     
    What makes the testimony so tangible, is other people who live in the same area later said they saw the same object which they thought to be a comet.
     
    After submitting his testimony to the judge, Linke made the following statement: “I would have thought that both my daughter and I were dreaming if it were not for the following element involved: When the object had disappeared, I went to the place where it had been. I found a circular opening in the ground and it was quite evident that it was freshly dug. It was exactly the same shape as the conical tower. I was then convinced that I was not dreaming.”
     
    Linke continued, “I had never heard of the term ‘flying saucer’ before I escaped from the Soviet Zone into West Berlin. When I saw this object, I immediately thought that it was a new Soviet military machine.
     
    “I confess that I was seized with fright because the Soviets do not want anyone to know about their work. Many persons have been restricted to their movements for many years in East Germany because they know too much.”

    BROOKLYN, N.Y. — This weekend, a new opera about space exploration, the universe's creation and one astronaut's journey will play at the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) — and audience members will be able to talk to performers and astronomers after several of the shows.

    The 75-minute opera, "The Astronaut's Tale," opens tonight (Jan. 28) at 8 p.m. EST, followed by a special reception honoring retired NASA astronaut Michael Massimino, who launched on two space shuttle missions to repair the Hubble Space Telescope. This is the opera's first full production; Encompass New Opera Theatre put on a partially staged reading in 2012 and is producing this premiere at BAM Fisher's 250-seat theater, complete with a set built around vivid projections of space and the universe's mysteries.

    The opera was composed and written by Charles Fussell and Jack Larson, and is directed by Nancy Rhodes. The production's website sells tickets and includes a schedule of the postshow talks.

    Over the course of the narrative, a young man grapples with religious and scientific views of the universe, and is inspired to become an astronaut and blast into space. To tell the story, the opera uses song — four singers accompanied by a chamber orchestra — as well as spoken narration. The show is a multimedia experience: Three projectors display images onto the floor, a wall, and a round, hanging set piece, so the actors are surrounded by views of the cosmos.

    Encompass New Opera Theatre focuses on bringing 20th- and 21st-century American operas to the theater, and has tackled scientific topics before: Its opera "The Theory of Everything" explored scientific and spiritual ideas about alternate dimensions.

    Antarctic fungi survive Martian conditions on the International Space Station
    by Staff Writers
    Madrid, Spain (SPX) Jan 29, 2016

    European scientists have gathered tiny fungi that take shelter in Antarctic rocks and sent them to the International Space Station. After 18 months on board in conditions similar to those on Mars, more than 60% of their cells remained intact, with stable DNA. The results provide new information for the search for life on the red planet. Lichens from the Sierra de Gredos (Spain) and the Alps (Austria) also travelled into space for the same experiment.

    The McMurdo Dry Valleys, located in the Antarctic Victoria Land, are considered to be the most similar earthly equivalent to Mars. They make up one of the driest and most hostile environments on our planet, where strong winds scour away even snow and ice. Only so-called cryptoendolithic microorganisms, capable of surviving in cracks in rocks, and certain lichens can withstand such harsh climatological conditions.

    A few years ago a team of European researchers travelled to these remote valleys to collect samples of two species of cryptoendolithic fungi: Cryomyces antarcticus and Cryomyces minteri. The aim was to send them to the International Space Station (ISS) for them to be subjected to Martian conditions and space to observe their responses.

    The tiny fungi were placed in cells (1.4 centimetres in diameter) on a platform for experiments known as EXPOSE-E, developed by the European Space Agency to withstand extreme environments. The platform was sent in the Space Shuttle Atlantis to the ISS and placed outside the Columbus module with the help of an astronaut from the team led by Belgian Frank de Winne.

    For 18 months half of the Antarctic fungi were exposed to Mars-like conditions. More specifically, this is an atmosphere with 95% CO2, 1.6% argon, 0.15% oxygen, 2.7% nitrogen and 370 parts per million of H2O; and a pressure of 1,000 pascals. Through optical filters, samples were subjected to ultra-violet radiation as if on Mars (higher than 200 nanometres) and others to lower radiation, including separate control samples.

    "The most relevant outcome was that more than 60% of the cells of the endolithic communities studied remained intact after 'exposure to Mars', or rather, the stability of their cellular DNA was still high," highlights Rosa de la Torre Noetzel from Spain's National Institute of Aerospace Technology (INTA), co-researcher on the project.

    The scientist explains that this work, published in the journal Astrobiology, forms part of an experiment known as the Lichens and Fungi Experiment (LIFE), "with which we have studied the fate or destiny of various communities of lithic organisms during a long-term voyage into space on the EXPOSE-E platform."

    "The results help to assess the survival ability and long-term stability of microorganisms and bioindicators on the surface of Mars, information which becomes fundamental and relevant for future experiments centred around the search for life on the red planet," states De la Torre.

    Also lichens from Gredos and the Alps
    Researchers from the LIFE experiment, coordinated from Italy by Professor Silvano Onofri from the University of Tuscany, have also studied two species of lichens (Rhizocarpon geographicum and Xanthoria elegans) which can withstand extreme high-mountain environments. These have been gathered from the Sierra de Gredos (Avila, Spain) and the Alps (Austria), with half of the specimens also being exposed to Martian conditions.

    Another range of samples (both lichens and fungi) was subjected to an extreme space environment (with temperature fluctuations of between -21.5 and +59.6 + C, galactic-cosmic radiation of up to 190 megagrays, and a vacuum of between 10-7 to 10-4 pascals). The effect of the impact of ultra-violet extraterrestrial radiation on half of the samples was also examined.

    After the year-and-a-half-long voyage, and the beginning of the experiment on Earth, the two species of lichens 'exposed to Mars' showed double the metabolic activity of those that had been subjected to space conditions, even reaching 80% more in the case of the species Xanthoria elegans.

    The results showed subdued photosynthetic activity or viability in the lichens exposed to the harsh conditions of space (2.5% of samples), similar to that presented by the fungal cells (4.11%). In this space environment, 35% of fungal cells were also seen to have kept their membranes intact, a further sign of the resistance of Antarctic fungi.

    Earth is actually two planets, scientists conclude

    The early Earth was mixed with a baby planet called Theia following a head on collision 4.5 billion years ago, scientists have 

    Today's Earth is made up of early Earth and the embryonic planet Theia

    Earth is actually made up from two planets which came together in a head-on collision that was so violent it formed the Moon, scientists have concluded.

    Initially it was believed that the Moon was created when a smaller planet called Theia grazed the Earth and broke up, sending a smaller chunk into space where it was caught in Earth’s gravity.

    But if that was the case the Moon would have a different chemical composition to the Earth, because it would be made up, predominantly, of Theia.

    "Theia probably would have become a planet if the crash had not occurred"
    Prof Edward Young, University of California

    However, after studying Moon rocks brought back by astronauts on the Apollo missions, scientists at theUniversity of California have found that their oxygen isotopes are the same as on Earth.

    It means that the collision between Their and the early Earth was so violent that the two planets effectively melded together to form a new planet, a chunk of which was knocked off to form the Moon.

    We don’t see any difference between the Earth’s and the Moon’s oxygen isotopes; they’re indistinguishable,” said Edward Young, lead author of thenew study and a UCLA professor of geochemistry and cosmochemistry.

    Theia was thoroughly mixed into both the Earth and the Moon, and evenly dispersed between them.

    “This explains why we don’t see a different signature of Theia in the Moon versus the Earth.

    Professor Edward Young

    The crash with Theia happened approximately 100 million years after the Earth formed, almost 4.5 billion years ago.

    It was thought Theia had collided with Earth at an angle of 45 degrees or more, described by the report authors as a ‘powerful side-swipe’

    The researchers analysed seven rocks brought to the Earth from the Moonby the Apollo 12, 15 and 17 missions, as well as six volcanic rocks from the Earth’s mantle -- five from Hawaii and one from Arizona.

    The key to reconstructing the giant impact was a chemical signature revealed in the rocks’ oxygen atoms. More than 99.9 percent of Earth’s oxygen is O-16, so called because each atom contains eight protons and eight neutrons.

    But there also are small quantities of heavier oxygen isotopes: O-17, which have one extra neutron, and O-18, which have two extra neutrons.

    In 2014, a team of German scientists reported in Science that the Moon also has its own unique ratio of oxygen isotopes, different from Earth’s. The new research finds that is not the case.

    Prof Young’s research team used state-of-the-art technology and techniques to make extraordinarily precise and careful measurements, and verified them with UCLA’s new mass spectrometer.

    Theia, which did not survive the collision - except that it now makes up large parts of Earth and the Moon - was growing and probably would have become a planet if the crash had not occurred, added Prof Young.

    Prof Young and some other scientists believe the planet was approximately the same size as the Earth; although believe it was smaller, perhaps more similar in size to Mars.

    A head-on collision was initially proposed in 2012 by Matija Cuk, now a research scientist with the SETI Institute, and Sarah Stewart, now a professor at UC Davis; and, separately during the same year by Robin Canup of the Southwest Research Institute.

    The new research was published in the journal Science.

    Editor's note: this is another case submitted by Karel Rasin, and described in his book.

    This is a story of a possible UFO abduction released by Project Alfa UFO files. Project Alfa is a Prague-based, non-profit group of researchers in the Czech Republic. Most of project Alfa members are also members of Exopolitics Czech Republic.

    Case facts: witness: a woman, named Petra Lachova, age 29, living in Prague, married, not addicted to drugs or alcohol, one child (5 year old daughter). 
    Case explorers: Karel Rasin, Dana Rasinova. Date: 2012

    It happened about 2 years ago (2010) in her Prague flat. During the night, she woke up and saw something strange coming from the wall just next to the door. It had a grey cloud-like shape and was crawling along the bedroom towards her bed. Then it appeared over her body and was making the same crawling movements. These events repeated several times during the year. With every new visit, the entity became more and more like a figure, like a being. There was a paradox though, physically it wasn't possible to see the door whilst lying in the bed because the furniture blocks the view. Yet she saw the door while lying in the bed! When the being appeared, she would be paralyzed and she found herself in very strange "altered" state of mind and all her senses had been very sharp. The being had the power to move her body, and wherever the being looked, she moved. The man from the wall turned her in the bed to the right, to the left, on her back, on her stomach just by his eyes, and she couldn't do anything about it. When the being appeared, it just stared at her eyes for a long time without doing anything. When the being came next to her bed, it started to talk in a very fast way. His mouth moved rapidly and his mouth looked like it was made from plastic because the rapid talking sort of deformed his mouth. She never understood what he had been talking about, but it reminded her of some codes. This happened many times.

    Daughter shocked

    Once, her daughter woke up during the night in a stark terror and burst out crying. She was lying in bed next to her mother, and it was a hysterical crying. The mother switched on the light and went over to her. "What´s happening to you?" And little girl answered: "Mum, mum, there was something watching me just right by the door". Mother: "Who was watching you?" And the girl said: "Next to the door, something was standing there! It looked like a gray cloud or gray big beetle, I am scared to death!!"
    She took her daughter to her bed, hugged and comforted her until she fell asleep again.

    Detailed "Man from the wall"

    Sexual harassment

    Sometimes, when the man from the wall appeared again, there were changes to the events. After the normal long staring sessions, the being may suddenly appear face to face. She described his facial details, his weird suit (like fur with silver sparks coming out of it and the three big button-like things on his clothes). Face: very narrow mouth (rapid talking like an animation), two big, absolutely dark eyes like black holes, something that resembled a short haircut, an undistinguished nose, humanoid appearance, tall (2-2,5 meters), and very broad shoulders (like soccer defender). She didn't see his feet. She noticed his thumbs being very long (protruding).

    She found herself again in an altered state of mind. Suddenly she became aware of being on her knees, kneeling on the bed, facing against the wall. She started to feel sexual satisfaction by an oral method from behind. (Her husband wasn't home at that time). When it finished, she talked to herself, asking for him to leave, which he did, then she fell asleep.

    One of the last encounters happened around the end of April 2012. She woke up during the night with a strong feeling that the man from the wall was there again. When she saw him, she become paralyzed and found herself in a changed state of mind again. The man from the wall stood very close to her – face to face. She was lying on the bed with her daughter, and her husband wasn't there. (As far as her husband was concerned, he’s never felt anything strange even if he had been present on many occasions during her encounters).

    Suddenly, she felt the man from the wall is on her bed and interested in her daughter. She was very afraid and started to say to herself for him to leave her daughter alone. She described his face in detail and added that his neck had been very strange as if it had been assembled with small circles. The being was kneeling on her bed and all of a sudden, a strange (30cm) long silver stick appeared in his hand. It reminded her of a "railroad dispatcher with a signal disk allowing the train to move". Being afraid of the silver stick, she realized it may have been a sort of scalpel. She held onto her daughter very tightly.

    Then the whole scene began to change. Behind the being, the wall changed into some sort of big hologram, like a film screen. She saw a room and she began to see some details. There was a very strange yellow-white light shining from the ceiling in an unusual way which she couldn't describe easily. It wasn't the kind of light you switch on when entering a room, like a normal light, this light was "directed" and only lit up the space below. She saw something like a bed in the scene and the back wall of the room was made with a type of strange material, like some kind of tiles. It was a glass like, bluish material, glowing with a cold colour. From the ceiling, there was something resembling a heavy stove pipe with folds in a brick like colour. The man from the wall was standing inside this scene.

    Suddenly she was horrified, because she realized that she’d been there before! It was an operation theatre, definitely the surgery room, and then everything just stopped.

    Sexual harassment number two

    Then, she noticed the man from the wall coming again, but this time he wasn't alone! A younger being appeared by his side, smaller, but exactly the same as the man from the wall. Both figures stared at her for a long time without any motion. She couldn't move and stayed in her changed state of mind again. Suddenly she began to turn on her bed with her bottom facing them, in a position ready for sex. She was feeling sexually aroused as if someone was satisfying her by hand. After a while everything stopped and she fell asleep.

    This is a scene from on-board their ship. She had been brought into a strange room with many beings, all looking the same as the man from the wall. On a table she saw a being which resembled with other beings standing around. This one was ill or without a soul or perhaps somehow dried. The tubes shown in the picture were in both of her arms with a black liquid being taken from her. She felt the being was going to die and she didn't know why they brought her there. The beings just watched to see what she would do.

    This is a summary of Petra’s story, and the case investigation is still ongoing.

    Wikileaks Cable Reveals Flying “Machines” That “Obscure” Their Shape Spotted Near Military Installations

    wiki

    It is more common that you might think for Unidentified Flying Objects to be seen at military installations around the world. Two well-known examples out of many such encounters include  the incident at Minot Air Force base and another at RAF Bentwaters military base. Documents that have been released into the public domain indicate multiple instances of UFO sightings have occurred, and they have been both seen and tracked on radar. Significantly, their appearance at military sites also coincides with interference of critical weapons systems, like nuclear warheads.

    There is a serious possibility that we are being visited and have been visited for many years by people from outer space, from other civilizations. [And] it behooves us, in case some of these people in the future or now should turn hostile, to find out who they are, where they come from, and what they want. This should be the subject of rigorous scientific investigation and not the subject of ‘rubishing’ by tabloid newspapers.” (source) – Lord Admiral Hill-Norton, Former Chief of Defence Staff, 5 Star Admiral of the Royal Navy, Chairman of the NATO Military Committee

    This is why defence intelligence agencies have demonstrated such a high level of interest in UFOs; there are literally thousands of now unclassified documents detailing incredible encounters. Here is a great example of a declassified document detailing what happens when the military has an encounter with a UFO.

    As the F-4 approached a range of 25 nautical miles it lost all instrumentation and communications. When the F-4 turned away from the object and apparently was no longer a threat to it, the aircraft regained all instrumentation and communications. Another brightly lighted object came out of the original object. The second object headed straight toward the F4.” (source)

    Another great example comes from Canada, when pilots were flying in a formation of four F86 Sabre jet aircraft. One of the pilots described the phenomenon as a “bright light which was sharply defined as disk-shaped,” that looked like “a shiny silver dollar sitting horizontal.” Another pilot managed to photograph the object. Dr. Jacques Vallee, notable for co-developing the first computerized mapping of Mars for NASA, and for his work at SRI International on the network information center for ARPANET, a precursor to the modern Internet, also published a paper in the Journal of Scientific Exploration titled “Estimates of Optical Power Output in Six Cases Of Unexplained Ariel Objects With Defined Luminosity Characteristics.” (source)(source) In the paper, you can see the picture of the object as well as read his description of similar strange anomalies.

    Thousands of these encounters have occurred over previous decades. For more details and documents, you can read an article we published a couple of years ago titled, “This Is What Happens When The Military Tracks A UFO On Radar.

    Wikileaks Document

    I just want to make it clear that there are better examples of such incidents than the few mentioned in Wikileaks cables, though there are indeed multiple Wikileaks documents which reference UFOs and show a level of interest from defence agency personnel. One of them is titled, “Unidentified Flying Objects Over Algeria,” and it provides details regarding the Secretary General of  The Ministry of Defense, Colonel Abdelhamid Latrech, and his interest in strange machines which had been maneuvering over Alergian airspace in recent weeks.

    The document outlines how these strange objects had been seen near military installations by responsible people.” The “responsible people” list is blocked out and states “Limited Official Use,” because the people in question are military personnel. Hundreds of these people have come forward publicly, however, and here is one example.

    The cable goes on to explain that the object was both seen and tracked on radar, and reveals that the Colonel said the object had been seen five times” and “on one occasion it had remained visible for over two hours.”

    It further outlines how the object “had been seen twice near Oran, once in center of country, once near Bechar and, most recently, off the coast last night.” The interesting thing to note here is that this object had multiple visual confirmations. It is described as having a “very bright light which obscures its shape.” It was also noted that it  maneuvers and has been seen to land and take offand changes altitude continually.

    You can read the whole report here.

    Again, this is one of multiple incidents, and there are more telling documents out there detailing other verified encounters that are just as, or even more, astonishing.

    Behind the scenes, high ranking Air Force officers are soberly concerned about UFOs. But through official secrecy and ridicule, many citizens are led to believe the unknown flying objects are nonsense.” Former head of the CIA, Roscoe Hillenkoetter, 1960 (source, NY Times)

    Dead for 48 minutes, Catholic Priest claims God is female

    A Catholic priest from Massachussetts was officially dead for more than 48 minutes before medics were able to miraculously re-start his heart has revealed a shocking revelation that will change everything you once believed.
     
    The 71-year-old cleric Father John Micheal O’neal claims he went to heaven and met God, which he describes as a warm and comforting motherly figure.
     
    Father John Micheal O’neal was rushed to the hospital on January 29 after a major heart attack, but was declared clinically dead soon after his arrival.
     
    With the aid of a high-tech machine called LUCAS 2, that kept the blood flowing to his brain, doctors at Massachusetts General Hospital managed to unblock vital arteries and return his heart to a normal rhythm.
     
    The doctors were afraid he would have suffered some brain damage from the incident, but he woke up less than 48 minutes later and seems to have perfectly recovered.
     
    The elderly man claims that he has clear and vivid memories of what happened to him while he was dead. He describes a strange out-of-body experience, experiencing an intense feeling of unconditional love and acceptance, as well as being surrounded by an overwhelming light.
     
    He claims that at that point in his experience, he went to heaven and encountered God, which he describes as a feminine, mother-like “Being of Light”.
     
    “Her presence was both overwhelming and comforting” states the Catholic priest. “She had a soft and soothing voice and her presence was as reassuring as a mother’s embrace. The fact that God is a Holy Mother instead of a Holy Father doesn’t disturb me, she is everything I hoped she would be and even more!
     
    The declarations of the cleric caused quite a stir in the catholic clergy of the archdiocese over the last few days, causing the Archbishop to summon a press conference to try and calm the rumors.
     
    Despite the disapproval of his superiors, Father O’neal says that he will continue dedicating his life to God and spread the word of the “Holy Mother”.
     
    “I wish to continue preaching” says the elderly cleric. “I would like to share my new knowledge of the Mother, the Son and the Holy Ghost with all catholics and even all Christians. God is great and almighty despite being a woman…”
     
    The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston has not confirmed however, if they will allow Father O’neal to resume his preaching in his former parish in South Boston.

    People Are Saying The New ‘ Planet 9 ’ Is Going To Kill Us All - Here’s Why

    A chill swept over the internet last week when scientists announced that there was a huge, unseen planet at the far edge of our solar system - Planet 9.
     
    For decades, conspiracy theorists have predicted that an unseen planet beyond Neptune -  called Nibiru or Planet X - is going to destroy Earth.
     
    The announcement from Caltech scientists seemed to confirm there WAS a planet there - and the wilder reaches of the internet have already begun predicting apocalypse.
     
    A message appeared on the website of Zecharia Sitchin - a writer who claimed aliens from Nibiru created the human race - despite the fact Sitchin has been dead since 2010
     
     
    Pastor Paul Begley - an American preacher fond of predicting apocalypse, thundered, ‘Something is causing the heavens to shake - and it’s in your Bible! If you go into the gospel of Saint Luke, Luke 21, verse 10, “Nation shall rise against nation.Kingdom against kingdom. Great earthquakes shall be in diverse places - and famines and pestilences, and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.”’
     
    Begley admits he’s not certain Planet 9 IS Nibiru - but cheerfully predicts an asteroid strike wiping out a third of Earth’s population, followed by an impact with the planet itself.
     
    But in case you’re worried, you should note that Nibiru (or Planet X) was widely predicted to hit our planet in December last year, and before that in September.
     
     
    Prior to that, it was predicted to smash into our planet to coincide with the Mayan apocalypse in 2012 - and before that, Nancy Lieder, an American website writer who claimed to have an alien implant in her brain, predicted it would destroy the world in 2003.
     
    NASA has thoroughly debunked the Nibiru myth via its Beyond 2012 page, saying, ‘Nibiru and other stories about wayward planets are an Internet hoax. There is no factual basis for these claims. If Nibiru or Planet X were real and headed for an encounter with the Earth, astronomers would have been tracking it for at least the past decade, and it would be visible by now to the naked eye.
     
    Soviet-born American writer Zecharia Sitchin first wrote about Nibiru in his hit 1976 book ‘The 12th Planet’ where he claimed it was inhabited by a race of ‘ancient aliens’ - the Annunaki - who had created the human race.

    A new NASA organization dedicated to protecting Earth from dangerous asteroids has hit the ground running.

    In early January, NASA announced the establishment of a Planetary Defense Coordination Office (PDCO), which will synchronize U.S. efforts to deal with threatening near-Earth objects (NEOs) and will supervise all NASA-funded projects to find and characterize asteroids and comets that visit Earth's neighborhood.

    "There is no identified threat that we know of right now," said Lindley Johnson, NASA's new planetary defense officer. [Photos: Potentially Dangerous Asteroids in Space]

    "Our job is to look for that and identify a NEO as far in advance as we can," Johnson told Space.com in an exclusive interview. "Doing so means we have the maximum amount of time to appropriately deal with the object, be it a small impactor or something that's larger, calling for a kinetic impactor mission, or whatever needs to be done."

    The PDCO is getting right to work. Next month, for example, the organization will conduct an open forum in Vienna, Austria, during a meeting of the United Nation's Scientific and Technical Subcommittee of the Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space (COPUOS).

    That UN subcommittee has formalized the International Asteroid Warning Network (IAWN) and a Space Mission Planning Advisory Group (SMPAG) of U.N. member states that have space agencies.

    "Our intent is to work within the international forums," Johnson said, "and encourage more involvement by other countries."

    Johnson said that he'll also be working closely with his European Space Agency (ESA) counterparts on NEOs.

    "We congratulate NASA for the establishment of their planetary defense office," said Detlef Koschny, head of the NEO Segment within the Space Situational Awareness Program Office at ESA's European Space Research and Technology Center in Noordwijk, Netherlands.

    ESA is active in the field of NEOs, Koschny said, citing the NEO Coordination Centre at ESA's European Space Research Institute in Italy.

    "We are fully supporting the work on defending our planet from potential asteroid impacts," Koschny told Space.com. [Photos: Asteroids in Deep Space]

    NASA's European colleagues are eager to coordinate on the planetary-defense effort, Koschny's NEO Segment colleague Gerhard Drolshagen told Space.com.

    "We look forward to working with the new Planetary Defense Coordination Office, building on long-standing international and inter-agency cooperation in the domain of NEO detection, risk assessment and mitigation," Drolshagen said.

    NASA also recently signed a charter with the U.S. Federal Emergency Management Agency to create a Planetary Impact Emergency Response Working Group, Johnson said.

    The working group will meet regularly — initially, twice a year, Johnson said — with the goal of bringing more people up to speed on the NEO hazard, and discussing how best to handle a potential impact.

    The Panoramic Survey Telescope & Rapid Response System (Pan-STARRS) 1 telescope on Mount Haleakala in Maui, Hawaii, made the greatest number of near-Earth object discoveries in the NASA-funded NEO surveys from 2015.

    By the end of 2016, Johnson said, it should be clear whether ESA will go ahead with the proposed Asteroid Impact & Deflection Assessment mission (AIDA), and whether NASA will be a part of the project.

    As it's currently envisioned, AIDA would launch two different spacecraft to the binary asteroid system Didymos: Europe's AIM probe and the Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART) craft, which would be built by the John Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory in Laurel, Maryland. DART would slam into the smaller of the two asteroids in the Didymos system, and AIM would observe the results, as a way of gauging the effectiveness of this asteroid-deflection strategy.

    Another decision expected this year is a go/no-go call on the Near-Earth Object Camera (NEOCam) mission, which NASA selected in September 2015 as a finalist for its next Discovery-class mission.

    NEOCam would survey the regions of space closest to Earth's orbit, where potentially hazardous asteroids are most likely to be found. Among other duties, the space telescope would assess the present-day risk of NEO impacts.

    NEOCam is competing with four other mission concepts for a Discovery slot (though it's also possible NASA could pick two of these ideas, officials have said). A decision will likely be announced in September 2016.

    The Asteroid Impact & Deflection Assessment (AIDA) mission concept study is an international collaboration among ESA, NASA, the German Aerospace Center, France's Observatoire de la Côte d´Azur and the John Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory in Maryland.

    Also this year, the second Asteroid Terrestrial-Impact Last Alert System (ATLAS) telescope is expected to be up and operating. The ATLAS project — developed by the Institute for Astronomy at the University of Hawaii — is designed to spot dangerous asteroids shortly before their final plunge to Earth. 

    The first ATLAS instrument is at work on the Haleakala volcano, on the Hawaiian island of Maui. The second telescope should be operational on the Big Island's Mauna Loa this year, Johnson said.

    "ATLAS is funded by NASA's NEO Observations Program, which is now integral to the Planetary Defense Coordination Office," he said. "It makes sure nothing on the small end gets through without us knowing about it … at least days to weeks before the impact."

    Johnson said that he is looking forward to a good year, "finding another 1,500 to 2,000 of these objects with the current capability … and getting a higher percentage of the NEO population in our catalog."

    Currently, astronomers have identified and tracked nearly 14,000 NEOs, out of a population thought to number in the millions.

    Violent Impact That Created Moon Mixed Lunar and Earth Rocks

    Violent Impact That Created Moon Mixed Lunar and Earth Rocks
    Earth's moon was born from a violent collision between the early Earth and a Mars-size object that scientists call Theia. New research suggests that the lunar rock debris from that crash mixed in with Earth's rocks.

    The colossal impact that created the moon may have spawned the cosmic mashup between the rocks that ultimately became Earth and its lunar neighbor, researchers say.

    Previous research suggested that about 100 million years after the solar system formed 4.6 billion years ago, the newborn Earth was hit by a Mars-size rock named Theia, named after the mother of the moon in Greek myth. Debris from the collision later coalesced into the moon.

    Much remains uncertain about the precise nature of this giant impact. For instance, scientists have long debated how much debris, including water, was exchanged between the nascent Earth and moon, and whether the collision was a glancing blow or a high-energy impact. [Watch: How the Moon Was Made, and What It Did for Life]

    Now scientists find evidence that the rocks that went on to become Earth and the moon were thoroughly mixed together before they separated. This suggests that "the collision that formed the moon was a high-energy impact," said study lead author Edward Young, a cosmochemist and geochemist at the University of California, Los Angeles

    The moon is Earth's nearest neighbor, but its origins date back to a violent birth billions of years ago. <a href=

    The researchers analyzed seven moon rock samples collected during the Apollo 12, 15 and 17 lunar missions. They also examined one lunar meteorite — a rock that a cosmic impact knocked off the moon, which later crashed on Earth.

    The researchers focused on ratios between different isotopes of oxygen in the rocks. Isotopes of an element have differing numbers of neutrons from one another — for instance, oxygen-16 has eight neutrons in its nucleus, while oxygen-17 has nine. [Violent Birth of the Moon Explained (Infographic)]

    The ratio of oxygen-17 to other oxygen isotopes typically gets smaller the bigger planets and moons get. This means that different planets and moons usually have distinct isotope signatures.

    However, the researchers found that Earth and the moon have indistinguishable oxygen isotope ratios, within 5 parts per million when it comes to oxygen-17.

    "As we continue to improve our ability to make measurements, the moon and Earth continue to be more and more alike isotopically," Young told Space.com.

    Previous research from another group in Germany found subtle differences in oxygen isotope ratios between Earth and the moon, differing by about 12 parts per million when it came to oxygen-17. This prior work suggested that less mixing occurred between Earth and the moon than now proposed.

    Young and his colleagues said their analysis was more precise than previous studies because they were able to identify and overcome potentially major causes of error, such as contamination by water.

    "It should be remembered that the new level of precision that we are working with is challenging, and so it is not surprising that there will be some disagreement in the beginning," Young said.

    Isotope geochemist Andreas Pack at the University of Göttingen in Germany, whose group previously found oxygen-isotope ratio differences between Earth and the moon, said this new research presents "high-quality data along with a sound explanation for the surprising similarity of Earth and the moon. There is nothing for me to criticize."

    These findings suggest that the newborn Earth and Theia contained substantial amounts of water bearing oxygen-17, the researchers said. This water may have come in the form of ice- or water-laden minerals, they added.

    In the future, "we will be measuring many more lunar samples to get a feel for what sort of variability there might be from terrain to terrain on the moon," Young said. "For example, we see evidence for oxygen isotope differences between basalts on the moon and the highlands of the moon. These differences mimic similar variability seen here on Earth."

    The scientists detailed their findings in the Jan. 29 issue of the journal Science.

    Alien Drone Takes Low Flyby Over UFO Researcher In Arizona On Jan 2016, Video, UFO Sighting News.

    Date of sighting: January 27, 2016
    Location of sighting: Queen Creek, Arizona, USA

    This video was recently posted by jmhz71 of Youtube. These are done UFOs. They record anything and everything around them for scientific purposes. They have a high curiosity that changes as fast as their speed. Here a person and this drone both notice the white floating object in the sky, but the drone UFO decides to take a close flyby of the person looking at the white object. Thats happened a few times to me before. These drones...they can read thoughts (telepathy from as far as 1/2km away! They record everything from thoughts of the people below to their tastes, touches, feelings. I got all that from a sighting long ago in South America when a guy had one on one contact. Alien tech guys.

    The digital eye is more perfect than our eyes and can capture the true picture for the moment in time, where we usually miss the things that move fast. Here French journalist Daniel Ubertini caught a metal disk over Waikato, NZ. The disk is viewed from its side. I can use the focus of the UFO, clouds and buildings in the photo to determine its size. Its as big or bigger than a Boeing 727. Thats one big UFO guys!
    Scott C. Waring
    www.ufosightingsdaily.com

    News states:

    Retired French photojournalist Daniel Ubertini, 67, had a slightly other-worldly experience in the Waikato 10 days ago. As he uploaded shots taken at a Rotorua marae, he noticed something unusual. There appeared to be three elongated objects in the sky – a larger one at the right side of the image, and two smaller ones on the left. Ubertini has asked himself that question around several photographs he has taken over time – six to be exact. 

    Most were taken before the day of the drone, where misidentification might be more plausible. His first UFO shot was in Reunion Island in the Indian Ocean. A subsequent photograph featuring a questionable image was taken in Tonga in 2009 … then there were two in France during 2014, another in Tonga in 2015, and now the one in Rotorua in January. The fact-driven photojournalist and aviation enthusiast is quick to deny anything akin to obsession around UFOs. But his tally is an unusual one. "I took my first photo of a UFO in 1977," said the internationally-published Ubertini. "At that time I was not completely thinking of UFOs." That incident was in Reunion Island, when he was photographing an Air France B747 taking off. When developing the shots, he noticed an object roughly the size of the engine flying above the wing, with an apparent 'tail' at the back. In 2009, he discovered "a shape resembling a DVD with a hole in the middle" appearing above and behind a plane on the tarmac in Tonga. He sent the shots to Arizona and to the French Space Agency investigations unit, Geipan - neither could identify the objects, and filed the images away. Ubertini stayed with friends in Cambridge in late January en route to his home in the south of France. While here, he visited the Rotorua marae and took his most recent UFO shots. "I never try to take those kinds of photographs – but I do photograph a lot of aircraft, and I do believe there are things happening that we cannot explain."

    The bright star Sirius presides over an ancient burial mound in a dazzling new photo by project nightflight, taken at the Grossmugl Star Walk in Austria.

    Project nightflight is an initiative that promotes interest in and conservation of the night sky, led by astrophotographers Karoline Mrazek and Erwin Matys. The group captured this view of Sirius, the brightest star in Earth's night sky, about a half hour's drive from Vienna. The project's work is online at www.project-nightflight.net.

    "This image, shot on January 22, 2016, shows Sirius rising above the Leeberg tumulus, a 2500 years old ancient burial mound at the endpoint of the Grossmugl Star Walk," project nightflight wrote in an email to Space.com. [Gallery: Amazing Skywatcher Photos from Around the World]

    The Grossmugl Star Walk, set up by project nightflight, is self-guided tour that's nearly 1 mile long (1.5 kilometers). Visitors learn how to spot different astronomical features over the course of a 90-minute walk. The burial mound acts as the tour's finale, and is featured in this new image, called "Frozen Farmland."

    "The image was shot one day before full moon on a very cold and crisp winter's night," the photographers wrote. "The near full moon illuminated the frozen farmland surrounding the tumulus and gave the sky a distinct bluish hue."

    The secret shugborough inscription, the key to finding the Holy Grail?

    According to legend throughout history, the Holy Grail has special powers, including the secret to immortality
     
    The Shugborough Inscription is a sequence of letters [O U O S V A V V] between the letters D M – carved on the 18th century Shepherd’s Monument in Staffordshire, England. The monument itself is estimated to of been built sometime between 1748 and 1763, which was commissioned by Thomas Anson, and his brother Admiral George Anson, from the powerful Anson family and fashioned by the Flemish sculptor Peter Scheemakers. It has never been explained with clarity, only in theory, and is largely considered to be one of the world’s greatest cipher codes and secrets.
     
     
    One of the most popular theories is that the strange sequence of letters – OUOSVAVV, framed at either end by DM – was left as a clue to the whereabouts of the legendary Holy Grail which allegedly hold the secret to esoteric knowledge including immortality. According to the legend, the code was created by the Knights Templars, the fanatical military unit that led the slaughter of the crusades.
     
    Countless individuals have tried to crack the code, including famous historical giants, Charles Dickens and Charles Darwin, but every single one has failed to provide a tangible and agreeable interpretation.
     
    The Anson brothers are reputedly associated with Freemasonry and the Priory of Sion. The priory also claimed links to the Knights Templar and they believed that Jesus was not a divine figure but rather just an enlightened one. Researchers believe that Jesus had esoteric knowledge that could be discovered if this code is cracked.
     
    Other theories, according to historicmysteries.com can be summed up as follows;
     
    -Admiral George Anson, famous for his circumnavigation of the globe, possibly encrypted an acrostic of a brief poem in Latin to the memory of his late wife. This verse translates into English as: “Best of wives, best of sisters, a most devoted widower dedicates to your virtues.”
     
    -Another attempt to solve the riddle posits that the letters are acrostics in Latin for particular biblical verses.
     
    -Others have suggested that the letters represent initials of noteworthy residents of Shugborough Hall and its environs.
     
    -A standard of many mysteries, it has been suggested that the letters, once decoded, will tell the location of the Holy Grail.
     
    -Someone has speculated that the code is actually in the Norwegian language, and that attempts to use Latin or English to crack the code are futile.
     
    -And there have been many that believe that the inscription does not represent letters at all, but is actually a string of numbers.
     
    -Below you can view one of the newest and credible theories to date, by a former NSA code breaker, Dr. Keith Massey;
     
     
    And here you can watch a documentary on the mysterious and legendary Holy Grail;

    Building DNA Computers

    Humans are now being described as DNA computers. Although humans still don’t know exactly how DNA works, they are moving forward with research and gaining fresh insights on a daily basis. Call it DNA artwork, genetic 3D printing, DNA printing and graphics, or DNA Canvas art; by whatever name, it is a cutting-edge tool already making waves in science, clinical research, and society. It is also redefining what it means to be human.

    IndustryTap has written about human attempts to alter nature’s DNA computers, like the glowing plants in which the Deoxyribonucleic Acid (DNA) of plants is modified using a genetic compiler so they glow, acting as bedside nightlights. This technique presages the day, not too far off, when anyone, anywhere, will be able to design and create new living organisms. No wonder Stephen Hawking is worried about our future.

    3D Printing a Person’s Face Using a DNA Swab

    One new technique 3D prints the face of a person using information derived from DNA sequencing. This week, for example, scientists released two life-sized models of Chelsea Manning’s face using a 3D printer and her DNA information. If Manning hasn’t attained immortality yet, she has now.

    Chelsea Manning 3D Printed Face from DNA

    Chelsea Manning 3D Printed Face from DNA

    In a related development, police departments are now using this technique to create composites of suspects from microscopic DNA left at crime scenes. It’s expected this new technology will put a significant dent in the huge backlog of “cold cases,” get violent criminals off the street, and bring closure to families who’ve lost loved ones.

    3D Printed DNA as Scaffolds for Nanoparticles

    Researchers are also using 3D printed synthetic DNA to create scaffolding structures for assembling nanoparticles and nanodevices. This involves new techniques of DNA nanotechnology that enable the design and fabrication of static and dynamic DNA nanostructures.

    Cambrian Genomics, headed by Austin Heinz and part of Singularity University’s growing Startup Lab portfolio, is leading the development of DNA technology that will allow DNA mapping and the custom-design of living creatures.

    The following YouTube playlist includes 3 videos about Cambrian Genomics and 3D Printing DNA.

    SpaceX Reveals Footage of Parachutes That Can Safely Bring Astronauts Home


    Dragon_parachute_test

    Four red-and-white parachutes unfurled high above the desert near Coolidge, Arizona, recently during a test of the system that initially will be used to safely land SpaceX’s Crew Dragon spacecraft carrying astronauts back from the International Space Station. The test used a mass simulator as the weight of the spacecraft connected to the parachute system. The mass simulator and parachutes were released thousands of feet above the ground from a C-130 cargo aircraft. This test evaluated the four main parachutes, but did not include the drogue chutes that a full landing system would utilize.

    As part of its final development and certification work with NASA’s Commercial Crew Program, SpaceX continues to perform tests of flight-like hardware that allows engineers to assess the reliability. Later tests will grow progressively more realistic to simulate as much of the actual conditions and processes the system will see during an operational mission.

    Initially, the spacecraft will splash down safely in the ocean under parachutes, but ultimately the company wants to land the vehicle on land propulsively using eight SuperDraco engines.SpaceX tested its propulsive land landing ability in Texas in November.

    IN BRIEF

    A new release showcases successful footage of SpaceX testing new methods of bringing astronauts back to Earth after missions.

    SPACEX PARACHUTES

    New footage shows SpaceX performing tests involving parachutes designed to bring astronauts back down to Earth. The entire process involves four large parachutes used to lower the Dragon spacecraft as it drifts back to Earth post mission.

    SpaceX is a company known for making cargo runs for NASA to the International Space Station, and has been doing so since 2012. The longstanding partnership is set to extend, as NASA is (apparently) going to renew the contract long term.

    In fact, NASAhas also contracted SpaceX to bring astronauts to the International Space Station, and has built a crew-rated version of the Dragon spacecraft specific to this initiative.

    For this project to come to fruition, numerous tests have to be conducted; the most recent one being the parachutes, where the company placed a giant weight in place of the actual spacecraft and dropped the test chutes over Coolidge Arizona using a C-130. The tests proved to be successful and deployed as they were intended to.

    SAFE LANDING

    Despite the test rig landing in the desert, they intend for the spacecraft to land in the ocean—this will mark the first time that astronauts will land in water since the 70s. These SpaceX missions are set to take place sometime in late 2017 or early 2018.

    Simultaneously, as SpaceX is testing water landings, the company is also studying the use of jet propulsion as a way to land on solid ground or on drone ships at sea. The whole point of this focused research is to find the right technology that will allow astronauts to safely come back to Earth.

    Check out SpaceX’s video of their parachute tests below.

    Mysterious Sonic Boom Reported Over New Jersey

    Sonic booms were reported over southern New Jersey and along the East Coast to Long Island, New York, on Jan. 28, 2016.

    At least 10 sonic booms have been reported this afternoon (Jan. 28) from southern New Jersey along the East Coast to Long Island, New York, say scientists with the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS).

    The first sonic boom was recorded at 1:24 p.m. EST (18:24:05 UTC), about 2 miles (3 kilometers) north-northeast of Hammonton, New Jersey, and 37 miles (60 km) south of Trenton, New Jersey. In the following hour and a half, seismometers picked up at least nine other sonic booms along the Eastern Seaboard all the way to Long Island, according to the USGS.

    A spokesperson for the USGS said agency scientists there have no other information except that these were sonic booms and not earthquakes that were detected today.  

    A sonic boom occurs when an object (or an explosion) travels faster than the speed of sound (761.2 mph, or 1,225 km/h, at sea-level), sending out a shockwave that also travels faster than sound, according to John Bellini, a geophysicist with the USGS National Earthquake Information Center in Golden, Colorado.

    The cause of today's sonic booms remains mysterious. Bellini noted, however, that if an explosion had caused these booms, someone likely would have seen it.

    Officials have also ruled out NASA's Wallops Flight Facility on Wallops Island in Virginia, which routinely launches small rockets and jet test flights from its Eastern Shore site. But today, no rocket launches or jet flights occurred at the NASA center, spokesman Keith Kohler said in an email.

    Scientists knew these were seismic waves from sonic booms and not earthquakes because of their speed. "An earthquake moves through the ground and it moves 10,000 feet per second [3,048 meters per second]," Bellini told Live Science. In today's instance, the waves were moving away from the seismometers in New Jersey at speeds that would suggest they were moving faster than sound in the air. A seismometer that tracks waves moving through the ground can pick up a sonic boom, whose waves move through the air, Bellini said. But the seismometers usually have to be pretty close to where the boom occurs, because sound doesn't transfer well into the ground.

    ABC News reported that the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration and the North American Aerospace Defense Command had both confirmed they didn't have any planes operating nearby that could have generated the sonic booms.

    No aircraft capable of sonic booms were operating at nearby naval air bases either, according to officials.

    "We have reports of ground shaking in S. Jersey — currently our training ranges are clear and no MDL aircraft are capable of sonic booms," officials at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst in Trenton, New Jersey, wrote on Twitter. "We're working with local authorities to determine the cause and will have an update ASAP."

    ABOUT THIS IMAGE

    What appear to be tiny oases nurturing a variety of trees in a vast pink desert are not, actually. The Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter captured this image in April of 2008 near Mars' North Pole. Experts believe the dark spots are wet patches of Martian sand that grew from melting carbon dioxide ice due to the spring Sun. In close up views of the image sand slides are evident from swirling clouds of dust. [See more photos from the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. ]

    Alien abductee Sue Sill of Outlane, Huddersfield, wants to prove the truth is out there

    Alien abductee Sue Sill of Outlane, Huddersfield, wants to prove the truth is out there

    Sue Sill, of Outlane, has been filming UFOs over Huddersfield for years

    Are we alone in the universe?

    Everyone has a theory – but for Sue Sill, there’s only one answer.

    Sue, 57, of Outlane, claims she’s had many encounters with UFOS – and believes she was abducted in 2010.

    She says Huddersfield is a hotbed of activity and has filmed UFOs in the sky all around the town.

    Her latest experience was just last month, when she filmed a light in the sky above her home – watch the video below.


    She said: “I was in my kitchen with my sister-in-law Colleen, who has seen quite a lot of things with me. She said, ‘there’s something over the top of your house again – a bright light in the sky.’”

    Sue has been an avid UFO spotter for most of her life and in 2010 had an experience she describes as an abduction, around the same time crop circles were found at Castle Hill.

    A CROP CIRCLE WHICH APPEARED AT CASTLE HILL IN JULY 2010.

    She said: “I was sorting my things out for the morning and running a bath. I walked back into the bedroom and it was like I had gone into a trance.

    “I sat down on the bed and the next thing, some figures appeared. They were really small and they had black skin or were wearing black suits.

    “They had long, thin arms and their faces were obscured, like a liquid. I was thinking, ‘oh God, what’s happening here?’

    “They came to the side of the bed and something like a veil came over me. The next thing I knew I was in a space on a craft looking at Earth.

    The Fermi Paradox Is Not Fermi's, and It Is Not a Paradox

    Despite what you'll often read, the Nobel prizewinning nuclear physicist never suggested that aliens don't exist

    Two big ideas often come up in discussions about the search for extraterrestrial intelligence, or SETI. One is the Drake Equation, which estimates the number of civilizations in our Galaxy whose signals we might be able to detect—potentially thousands, according to plausible estimates. The other is the so-called Fermi paradox, which claims that we should see intelligent aliens here if they exist anywhere, because they would inevitably colonize the Galaxy by star travel—and since we don’t see any obvious signs of aliens here, searching for their signals is pointless.

    The Drake Equation is perfectly genuine: it was created by astronomer and SETI pioneer Frank Drake. The Fermi paradox, however, is a myth. It is named for the physicist Enrico Fermi—but Fermi never made such a claim.

    I’d like to explain why the so-called Fermi paradox is mistaken, based on my deep-dive research on the topic, because this mistake had inhibited the search for E.T., which I think is worthwhile. It was cited by Sen. William Proxmire (D-WI) as a reason for killing NASA’s SETI program in 1981; the program was restarted at the urging of Carl Sagan, but was killed dead in 1993 by Senator Richard Bryan (D-NV). Since then, no searches in the U.S. have received government funds, even though thousands of new planets have been discovered orbiting stars other than our sun.

    Enrico Fermi, a Nobel prizewinner who built the first nuclear reactor, never published a word on the subject of extraterrestrials. We know something about his views because physicist Eric Jones collected written accounts from the three surviving people present at a 1950 lunch in Los Alamos where the so-called Fermi paradox had its roots: Emil Konopinski, Edward Teller, and Herbert York (Fermi died in 1954).

    According to these eyewitnesses, they were chatting about a cartoon inThe New Yorker showing cheerful aliens emerging from a flying saucer carrying trash cans stolen from the streets of New York City, and Fermi asked “Where is everybody?” Everyone realized he was referring to the fact that we haven’t seen any alien spaceships, and the conversation turned to the feasibility of interstellar travel. York seemed to have had the clearest memory, recalling of Fermi:

    “... he went on to conclude that the reason that we hadn’t been visited might be that interstellar flight is impossible, or, if it is possible, always judged to be not worth the effort, or technological civilization doesn’t last long enough for it to happen.”

    Both York and Teller seemed to think Fermi was questioning the feasibility of interstellar travel—nobody thought he was questioning the possible existence of extraterrestrial civilizations. So the so-called Fermi paradox—which does question the existence of E.T.—misrepresents Fermi’s views. Fermi’s skepticism about interstellar travel is not surprising, because in 1950 rockets had not yet reached orbit, much less another planet or star.

    If Fermi wasn’t the source of this pessimistic idea, where did it come from?

    The notion “... they are not here; therefore they do not exist” first appeared in print in 1975, when astronomer Michael Hart claimed that if smart aliens existed, they would inevitably colonize the Milky Way. If they existed anywhere, they would be here. Since they aren’t, Hart concluded that humans are probably the only intelligent life in our galaxy, so that looking for intelligent life elsewhere is “probably a waste of time and money.” His argument has been challenged on many grounds—maybe star travel is not feasible, or maybe nobody chooses to colonize the galaxy, or maybe  we were visited long ago and the evidence is buried with the dinosaurs—but the idea has become entrenched in thinking about alien civilizations.

    In 1980, the physicist Frank Tipler elaborated on Hart’s arguments by addressing one obvious question: where would anybody get the resources needed to colonize billions of stars? He suggested “a self-replicating universal constructor with intelligence comparable to the human level.” Just send one of these babies out to a neighboring star, tell it to build copies of itself using local materials, and send the copies on to other stars until the Galaxy is crawling with them. Tipler argued that absence of such gizmos on Earth proved that ours is the only intelligence anywhere in the entire Universe—not just the Milky Way galaxy—which seems like an awfully long leap from the absence of aliens on our one planet.

    Hart and Tipler clearly deserve credit for the idea at the heart of the so-called Fermi paradox. Over the years, however, their idea has been confused with Fermi’s original question. The confusion evidently started in 1977 when the physicist David G. Stephenson used the phrase ‘Fermi paradox’ in a paper citing Hart’s idea as one possible answer to Fermi’s question. The Fermi paradox might be more accurately called the ‘Hart-Tipler argument against the existence of technological extraterrestrials’, which does not sound quite as authoritative as the old name, but seems fairer to everybody.

    As for the paradox, there is none, even in Hart’s and Tipler’s arguments. There is no logical contradiction between the statement “E.T. might exist elsewhere” and the statement “E.T. is not here” because nobody knows that travel between the stars is possible in the first place.

    The Hart-Tipler argument, cloaked in the authority of Fermi’s name, has made some people pessimistic about the chances for success in SETI. But the suggestion that we should not look for intelligent life elsewhere because we don’t see aliens here is simply silly. There are some signs that the pessimism is lifting, most notably Yuri Milner’s privately fundedBreakthrough Listen project, which promises to contribute $100 million in funding over ten years. But searching millions of stars for signals at unknown frequencies might take more resources. Our searches typically ’see’ a spot on the sky no bigger than the Moon at any moment, which is only a tiny fraction of the sky. If we want to find something interesting in our era, we might need to look harder.

    Alien abduction or mind manipulation?

    YouTube
    What really happened to Charles Hickson and Calvin Parker in Pascagoula, Miss. in October 1973?

    What if one of Ufology’s most cherished cases turned out to be something very different? Something far more down to earth, but of a distinctly conspiratorial nature. Yep, I can see the daggers being drawn already. Too bad for the belief-driven. There’s nothing worse than a mind made up. And there’s nothing better than shaking things up and addressing alternative theories when it comes to the matter of UFOs. After all, none of us really know what the truth is, when it comes to the UFO phenomenon. So, thinking outside of the box is vital. All of which brings us to a certain, famous UFO event of late 1973.

    On the night of October 10, 1973, two men – Charles Hickson and Calvin Parker – were fishing on the banks of Mississippi’s Pascagoula River. All was going fine. That is, until approximately 9:00 p.m. rolled around. That’s when all hell broke loose. Yet, it all began relatively calmly. It didn’t stay that way, however. As they fished, Parker and Hickson suddenly noticed a light in the distance. Not only that, it was following the river and appeared to be coming in their direction. Which was not necessarily a good thing.

    As the light got closer, they could see it in its full glory: the light was actually a brightly lit, somewhat egg-shaped craft, from which came a deep, throbbing hum. Such was the intensity of the hum, it provoked intense nausea in both men. Confusion, and a sense of distinct unreality, quickly followed. The pair watched in horror and amazement as what was described as a “hatch” opened and a trio of very strange-looking creatures exited the hovering object. Even stranger, and much more unnerving, the three things floated from the craft, across the waters of the river, and towards Hickson and Parker.

    The aliens were not of the famous large-headed, black-eyed, and dwarfish kind, however. They weren’t even of the benevolent-looking, so-called “Space Brothers” variety of the 1950s. Nope, this particular breed of E.T. was described later by the shocked and undeniably traumatized men as being humanoid, and with faces that appeared to be almost masked, and heads from which three carrot-style points protruded. On top of that, they had large crab-like or lobster-like claws.

    Then matters got even worse: when the things from another world were practically on top of terrified Parker and Hickson, both men were rendered into a state of paralysis. Whether due to some technology of the aliens, or provoked by overwhelming fear, remains unknown. Maybe it was a combination of both. Suddenly, the entities seized the pair, who were manhandled onto the UFO. Like most abductees, Hickson and Parker were quickly reduced to the equivalents of lab rats. When the trauma-filled encounter was over, the pair was dumped back on the edge of the river.

    Daniel Ubertini's shot taken in late January at a marae in Rotorua – with the largest of the three unexplained objects circled. Two smaller, similarly-shaped objects were at the far left of the image.

    He's An Oracle Of Business Success Read What He's Eying Up To Now

    Retired French photojournalist Daniel Ubertini, 67, had a slightly other-worldly experience in the Waikato 10 days ago.

    As he uploaded shots taken at a Rotorua marae, he noticed something unusual. 

    There  appeared to be three elongated objects in the sky – a larger one at the right side of the image, and two smaller ones on the left.

    Daniel Ubertini with his 2009 UFO shot taken in Tonga (left), and his 1977 shot taken in Reunion Island.

    "They are the shape of nothing I know," he said. "They were not aircraft, not birds … what were they?"

    Ubertini has asked himself that question around several photographs he has taken over time – six to be exact.  Most were taken before the day of the drone, where misidentification might be more plausible.

    His first UFO shot was in Reunion Island in the Indian Ocean.

    A subsequent photograph featuring a questionable image was taken in Tonga in 2009 … then there were two in France during 2014, another in Tonga in 2015, and now the one in Rotorua in January.

    The fact-driven photojournalist and aviation enthusiast is quick to deny anything akin to obsession around UFOs. But his tally is an unusual one.

    "I took my first photo of a UFO in 1977," said the internationally-published Ubertini. "At that time I was not completely thinking of UFOs."

    That incident was in Reunion Island, when he was photographing an Air France B747 taking off. When developing the shots, he noticed an object roughly the size of the engine flying above the wing, with an apparent 'tail' at the back.

    In 2009, he discovered "a shape resembling a DVD with a hole in the middle" appearing above and behind a plane on the tarmac in Tonga.

    He sent the shots to Arizona and to the French Space Agency investigations unit, Geipan - neither could identify the objects, and filed the images away.

    Ubertini stayed with friends in Cambridge in late January en route to his home in the south of France. While here, he visited the Rotorua marae and took his most recent UFO shots.

    "I never try to take those kinds of photographs – but I do photograph a lot of aircraft, and I do believe there are things happening that we cannot explain."

    Scientists Catch a Planet in the Making for the First Time Ever

    Scientists from Australia and the United States have observed a gas-giant planet – a giant planet composed mainly of hydrogen and helium – being formed for the first time.

    They also captured photographs of an exoplanet or extrasolar planet – a planet that orbits a star other than the sun – forming around a young star called LkCa 15. LkCa 15 is located 450 light years from Earth and is surrounded by a vast disc of dust and gas, making a perfect environment for planets to grow.

    Catching a planet in the making is an exciting first for astronomers. Although nearly 1,900 planets have been discovered and confirmed outside our solar system, none of them are in the process of formation.

    Kate Follett, a researcher at Stanford University, said that “no one has successfully and unambiguously detected a forming planet before. There have always been alternative explanations, but in this case, we’ve taken a direct picture, and it’s hard to dispute that.”

    This remarkable feat was achieved by scientists with the help of specialized instruments. These instruments include the Large Binocular Telescope or LBT, the world’s largest telescope, located on Arizona’s Mount Graham, and the University of Arizona’s Magellan Telescope and its Adaptive Optics System, MagAO, located in Chile.

    2015 Marked the Worst Year for Drone Crashes the Air Force Has Ever Had

    By:  

    Wiki

    Wiki

    The Air Force would like to forget about last year because a lot its drones crashed, most notably its Reaper drone which seemed to continuously drop out of the sky.

    In fact, 2015 represents the worst year for drone crashes the USAF has ever experienced.

    As a result, The Washington Post recently looked into the drone issues and concluded that Reaper crashes were a result of electrical failures.

    Investigators, on the other hand, believe there are problems with the Reaper’s “starter-generator.”

    All in all, 10 Reaper drones crashed in 2015, and 20 total, leading to approximately $2 million in damage.

    Keep in mind, this all comes in the wake of the Air Force recently announcing plans to hire thousands more people for its drone program.

    Aarde bestaat eigenijk uit twéé planeten - HLN.be

    Bron: ANP

    De versmelting van de Aarde met de planeet Theia gebeurde 4.5 miljard jaar geleden. © afp.

    De aarde bestaat eigenlijk uit twee in elkaar versmolten planeten. Die versmelting gebeurde 4.5 miljard jaar geleden. De aarde is toen frontaal op een andere planeet geknald. Die planeet, Theia, spatte daardoor uit elkaar. Uit de brokstukken ontstond de maan, maar de resten zijn ook opgezogen door de aarde en ermee versmolten.

    Een groep wetenschappers concludeert dat in het belangrijke wetenschapsblad Science. Het was al langer bekend dat er een botsing tussen de aarde en Theia moet zijn geweest. Dat zou ongeveer 4,5 miljard jaar geleden moeten zijn gebeurd, toen de aarde 100 miljoen jaar oud was. Maar het was nog niet duidelijk hoe de botsing ging en wat daarvan terug te vinden is.

    Chemische vingerafdruk van maanstenen
    Om het verleden te achterhalen, keken de onderzoekers naar de chemische 'vingerafdruk' van zeven stenen die astronauten hadden meegenomen van de maan. Die vergeleken ze met zes vulkanische stenen uit het binnenste van de aarde. De stenen waren helemaal gelijk aan elkaar, wat betekent dat ze dezelfde afkomst moeten hebben.

    Lees ook

    Frontale botsing
    Om dat mogelijk te maken, moet er bij de botsing een enorme kracht zijn vrijgekomen. Daaruit leiden de onderzoekers af dat de knal tussen de aarde en Theia frontaal moet zijn geweest. 

    "Theia is grondig door de aarde en de maan gemengd en gelijkmatig verdeeld. Dat verklaart waarom we geen verschillende vingerafdruk zien", zeggen de wetenschappers.

    Een andere theorie is dat Theia destijds langs de aarde is gescheerd. Daarbij zou de planeet in stukken zijn gescheurd. De resten zouden in een baan rond de aarde zijn gekomen, wat wij nu zien als de maan. Maar in dat geval zouden de stenen op de maan moeten verschillen van de stenen op aarde, omdat ze een andere afkomst hadden.

    Kleitablet toont onverwacht knap meetkundig denken: Babyloniërs berekenden snelheid van Jupiter al

    Kleitablet toont onverwacht knap meetkundig denken: Babyloniërs berekenden snelheid van Jupiter al

    Een pas ontdekt kleitablet toont onverwacht knap meetkundig denken door Babylonische astronomen. Op het kleitablet, dat dateert van ongeveer 350 voor Christus, wordt een grafiek van de schijnbare snelheid van de planeet Jupiter aan de hemel beschreven.

    Volgens de Nederlandse astronoom Mathieu Ossendrijver van de Humboldt-Universität in Berlijn, hadden de oude Babyloniërs zich een geometrische manier van denken eigengemaakt. Op het tablet legt een anonieme schrijver in spijkerschrift uit hoe je de planeet Jupiter moet volgen.

    Daarbij beschrijft hij een techniek waarvan men dacht dat die pas in het Europa van de 14e eeuw werd ontdekt. De techniek raakte in de vergetelheid, maar werd eeuwen later herontdekt.

    Soemeriërs

    De Babyloniërs, die leefden in wat nu Irak is, zetten de astronomische traditie voort die de Soemeriërs al rond 3000 voor Christus begonnen. Babylonische astronomen beschreven rond 700 voor Christus al de bewegingen van hemellichamen. Er zijn in de loop der jaren vele honderdduizenden kleitabletten opgegraven.

    De Grieken en later ook de Arabische en westerse gemeenschap namen de astronomische kennis en gegevens over. “Die Babylonische cultuur is echt een deel van ons erfgoed, niet één of andere doodlopende cultuur,” vertelt Ossendrijver aan Science. De verdeling van onze klok in zestigtallen en de gradenboog in 360 graden herinneren bijvoorbeeld nog altijd aan de Babyloniërs.

    Astrologie

    In 2014 kreeg hij een foto onder ogen van een nog niet beschreven kleitablet uit het British Museum. Ossendrijver kwam al snel tot de ontdekking dat het kleitablet betrekking had op de afstand die Jupiter heeft afgelegd aan de hemel.

    De Babyloniërs geloofden sterk in astrologie. Van de ontwikkeling van de graanprijs tot het weer, alles was volgens hen gecorreleerd aan de beweging van de hemellichamen.

    Hoogleraar sterrenkunde Teije de Jong van de UvA vermoedt dat de Babyloniërs dezelfde technieken ook op andere planeten toepasten. “Wat enorm zou helpen, is als we de schep in de grond konden zetten in Irak, waar naar alle waarschijnlijk nog veel meer kleitabletten liggen.”

    Weer een grote UFO die energie tankt bij de zon ( VIDEO )

    In maart 2012 ging een foto de wereld rond van een grote UFO die energie leek te tanken bij de zon. 

    Terwijl wetenschappers ruimtedeeltjes hebben ontdekt in een Egyptische piramide, tankt er opnieuw een grote UFO energie bij de zon. 



    Gisteren schreven wij over de bijzonder gebeurtenis bij de Colima vulkaan in Mexico, waar een grote UFO een vulkaanuitbarsting leek te veroorzaken. 

    Naar aanleiding van dat artikel, schrijft een lezer het volgende (dank!): 

    Hierbij wilde ik toch melden of jullie de link ook zien met UFO's die bij de zon gezien zijn en de ufo die bij vulkanen rond vliegen. 

    Het bewijs is nu geheel daar... als de UFO's energie nodig hebben laden ze op bij de zon. Mogelijk dat de vreemde waarnemingen bij de zon die vele malen groter zijn als op aarde de moeder schepen zijn. 

    Het lijkt mij duidelijk dat de ufo op jullie filmpje zich oplaadt door vulkanische warmte net als ze bij de zon doen. 

    Er lijkt mij geen andere reden te zijn waardoor de explosie ontstaat en de ufo er doorheen vliegt. 

    Heel gaaf dit dank 


    Bovenstaande is natuurlijk goed opgemerkt want ook bij de zon worden UFO’s gesignaleerd. 

    Op 11 maart 2012 ging de volgende afbeelding van een grote UFO die energie schijnt te tanken bij de zon de wereld rond.

    ufo tankt bij de zon

    Top op de dag van vandaag is daar nog nooit een “logische verklaring” voor gevonden. 

    Daarvoor en daarna zijn er nog meer waarnemingen geweest van UFO’s bij de zon die energie lijken te tanken. 

    En omdat toeval niet bestaat, hebben we ook deze week weer een voorval van een grote UFO bij de zon die net als die in 2012 energie schijnt te tanken.

    ufo tankt bij de zon 1


    ufo tankt bij de zon 2

    De opname lijkt in eerste instantie op een soort donkere planeet, gedeeltelijk verborgen achter de zon. Maar, even later is net zoals bij de vreemde grote UFO uit 2012 een soort slang te zien. 

    Iets dat lijkt op de verbinding tussen de UFO en de zon waarmee het mogelijk de nodige energie tankt. 

     
    We leven in bijzondere tijden waar zich verschijnselen voor doen die we een aantal jaren geleden niet kenden. 

    Zo schijnen de piramides weer tot leven te komen en signalen af te geven naar een verre planeet. 

    In dat kader stond er onlangs een interessant artikel op RT News waarin melding werd gemaakt van het feit dat een aantal wetenschappers deeltjes (muons) uit de ruimte hadden aangetroffen in een piramide en dat daar wel eens het antwoord kon liggen op het ontstaan van deze monumenten. 

    Veel wijzer dan dat zijn ze op dit moment nog niet, maar ze zijn in ieder geval zoekende in de juiste richting. 

    Mogelijk zal het antwoord op de vraag hoe de piramides zijn ontstaan wel veel eerder worden beantwoord door de bewoners van een “onbekende planeet” die onderweg is richting aarde. 

    Iemand die eigenhandig onderzoek heeft gedaan naar de piramides in Egypte is een Duitse toerist die enkele dagen geleden aan de blikken van de bewakers aldaar wist te ontsnappen en helemaal naar de top van de piramide klom. 

    Hoe dat in zijn werk ging en het uitzicht daarna, is te zien in de volgende video.

    Filer’s Files #5 -2016 Secret Space Program - PART I

    ff5

    In special reports, this week’s files cover: Air Chief Marshal Lord Dowding UFOs Do Exist, Secret Science and the Secret Space Program, Spain: Military Aviator Recalls UFO Sighting Over Menorca, World-Changing Events Poised Ready To Break, Stonehenge and Menhirs Energy, Many underground entrances found on Mars, New Jersey Lakehurst Naval Base Sighting, and December Sighting Reports.

    Unidentified Aerial Phenomena sightings were reported over California, Colorado, Florida, Maine, Missouri, New Jersey, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, Texas, and Washington.

    Unidentified Aerial Phenomena sightings were reported over Australia, Canada, Iceland, Italy, Kenya, New Zealand, Qatar, and England in the United Kingdom.

    The Filer Research Institute feels the scientific study of UFOs is for the benefit of humankind and is an important endeavor. The weekly intelligence report provides you with information on the latest sightings and UFO news that you need to understand the world situation. The purpose of these files is to report the UFO eyewitness and photo/video evidence that occurs on a daily basis around the world and in space. These Files assume that extraterrestrial intelligent life not only exists, but my hypothesis is that the over a thousand UFOs reported each month represent technologically advanced spacecraft conducting surveillance of Earth. I personally became interested in UFOs when London Control ordered me to intercept one over England while flying for the US Air Force and Prince Phillip told me of his personal interest in UFOs. The US Air Force investigated UFOs for more than twenty years under Project Blue Book; and I continue this advanced research. I believe the God of the universe has spread life throughout the cosmos and UFO’s are visiting us in ever-increasing numbers.

    Air Chief Marshal Lord Dowding UFOs Do Exist

    LordDowding

    Air Chief Marshall Lord Dowding states, “More than 10,000 sightings have been reported, the majority of which cannot be accounted for by any “scientific” explanation… I am convinced that these objects do exist and that they are not manufactured by any nation on Earth. I can therefore see no alternative to accepting the theory that they come from some extraterrestrial source.”

    .   Air Chief Marshal Lord Dowding, Commander-in-Chief of the Royal Air Force Fighter Command during the Battle of Britain. He is considered the mastermind of the successful defense of England from Nazi air power.

    Soldier, pilot, wireless pioneer, squadron commander, spiritualist, champion skier, Dowding is perhaps best known as the creator of the first radar-based air defense system the “Dowding System.” and his no less remarkable management of such throughout the Battle of Britain. He conceived and oversaw the development of an integrated air defense system which included (i) radar (who Dowding was among the first to appreciate), (ii) human observers (including the Royal Observer Corps), who filled crucial gaps in the radar such as the altitude of incoming German aircraft), (iii) raid plotting, and (iv) radio control of aircraft. The whole network was tied together and known as Ground-controlled interception (GCI). He oversaw the creation of Britain’s first eight-gun monoplanes, the Hurricane and Spitfire. Printed in Sunday Dispatch, London, July 11, 1954.

    Secret Science and the Secret Space Program

    SecretScienceSpaceProgram

    There are areas of science that are off limits to the public and are not taught in our universities. Scientists and experimenters like John Worrell Keely, Nicola Tesla, and Thomas Townsend Brown developed the science and technology of anti-gravity and extracting energy from space itself in the late 19th and early 20th century. However, today, this science is purposely overlooked and regulated to the world of “Black Projects.” The publicly acknowledged space program is but a “smoke screen” to hide a secret space program, overseen by NSA, the CIA and a secret branch of the U.N., which is so secret that even some U.S. Presidents and Congressional oversight committees are not even aware of it.

    Secret Science and the Secret Space Program will document and provide an in depth look at this secret science and technology and the secret space program that has already colonized Mars, built bases on our Moon and other planet’s moons and given us the ability to travel to the stars. “Black” science is so far ahead of acknowledged science that this book will seem like science fiction to many who read it.

    Herbert G. Dorsey III received a degree in Electrical Engineering from University of California at Santa Barbara in 1982. In 1985, he became acquainted with the ideas of Thomas Bearden and John Bedini, which allowed for free energy generation but ran counter to his formal schooling. Herbert Dorsey realized that there were holes in the formal science that he was taught and resolved to become a free energy researcher. Along the way, he also discovered the science of anti-gravity. In the 1990s, he attended many UFO conferences and met many interesting people that worked on secret government projects and was amazed at what he learned from them. Now, he wishes to share that knowledge with you.

    Spain: Military Aviator Recalls UFO Sighting over Menorca

    MirrageFighter

    A flier says he pursued the object involved in the Manises Incident right to the island. The retired air force officer described in detail his pursuit of unidentified objects while aboard a Mirage fighter – a chase that led him to Menorca.

    The unknown flying object incident that occurred on 11 November 1979 and popularly known as the Manises Incident is probably Spain’s most famous UFO case. The mystery even reached the halls of congress, where Deputy Enrique Múgica requested an explanation of what had taken place. There have been ample discussions about the incident, particularly following the declassification of the Ejército del Aire (Spanish Air Force) files in 1994. But, two decades later, the story is once again in the news, and in this case, with a connection that involves Menorca.

    All of this arose from an interview on Radio Valencia (Cadena SER) of one of the main witnesses, retired Air Force Captain Fernando Cámara. The military man complied with the order to takeoff from the Los Llanos Air Force Base in Albacete in a Mirage fighter with the goal of intercepting some red lights that were stalking a commercial flight of the now-defunct TAE airline, which had just taken off from Mallorca on its way to Tenerife, and was forced to make an emergency landing in Valencia with 109 passengers aboard.
    I saw the light, although my radar didn’t pick up anything. I was flying some 1000 kilometers an hour, and when I caught up to it, the light went from being static to flying in front of me at the same speed. I was aware that the object had detected me, because my fighter’s alarm systems were triggered. But I was only able to see it with my own eyes,” said Cámara on the radio broadcast.

    SpainPilot

    The military jet requested permission to go supersonic, but when the pilot managed to approach the object, it matched his speed. He decided to pursue it to Zaragoza, but he decided to break off pursuit. Returning to Valencia, he was asked to fly over the vicinity of Sagunto, where strange lights had also been seen. “When I got there, I found myself facing a white disk. It was very different from the other light, but the interference it caused on my plane was the same. I chased it to the Menorca area, but faced with the impossibility of reaching it, and given the lack of fuel, I decided to turn back,” he said.

    World-Changing Events Poised Ready To Break?

    Jonathan Gray writes, “If you didn’t know, events have started to happen in Europe, USA and Australia right now that are set to change the world overnight.Big upheavals are coming to your life and that of your family members. And, I am still in shock after 5 months of checking and re-checking some ancient prophecies that foretell what is happening. In addition, after that, what is going to come. The Invasion of America, Europe, and Australia with terrorists swarming into position among millions of refugees.  The most amazing prophecy: how global Islam will come to its end and another prophecy has revealed in startling detail the Vatican’s rise and its sudden coming dramatic end. Dire predictions of war with China, North Korea, and possibly Russia.

    Whenever predictions claimed disaster, I found it was helpful to pray:

    If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. . 2 Chronicles 7:14

    Stonehenge and Menhirs Energy

    Knowth,Ireland

    Cosmic Energy Research reports they have been studying ancient stone structures and their related places of power and energy. First, there were separate stones of various sizes, called menhirs, later followed by groupings of stones, then more sophisticated big circle structures like Knowth shown here up to pyramids. Archeologists assume that menhirs were built for cult-related, agricultural, calendar, and astronomic purposes. From our research, it was discovered that most of the menhirs were structures that created energy or were chosen because of their inherent power. Earth bulwarks can also be called menhirs such as Knowth in Ireland (shown).

    Menhirs focus or accumulate energy. In order for a menhir to function as an energy accumulator, it must be insulated from the bedrock with suitable natural materials. Expert literature states how the ground under earth bulwarks were adjusted. In his work “Stones of Time,” on Page 91 Martin Brennan describes how the structure in Knowth has been insulated”. Layers of grass and clay are sandwiched with layers of slate and pebble-stone. Hundreds of menhirs are located on the American continent, the United Kingdom, and China. Quartz for example is thought to induce clairvoyance and is ideal for crystal gazing. The association with crystals and spiritual communication is worldwide. Granite often have innate radioactivity, electrical and vibratory characteristics.

    Stonehhenge

    When I visited Stonehenge, my family and I could feel the energy from the stones and thought we could hear sound from the stones. This may be a type of healing energy or a method for communication, or even an anti gravity system. The boulders at Stonehenge weigh 25 tons and more and the Blue Stones were brought from a hundred miles away from Wales or Ireland. Firey balls of light and and frequent crop circles are reported in the area.

    MariaWhitley

    Maria Wheatley a curator of archeology at a top British Museum may agree with my concept of aliens on Earth. For the first time in the history of Stonehenge, Maria Wheatley reveals that a mysterious people constructed numerous sacred sites that surround Stonehenge. They displayed distinctive facial features, their skulls were elongated, and they ruled the locality.

    In Maria’s new book “Stonehenge’s Elongated Skulls”, the people with the long skulls built long structures and later Stonehenge, Avebury and numerous archeological sites. People with elongated skulls were rulers in Egypt, Sumer, and Peru and associated with royalty. The mummified remains of Pharaohs often have elongated skulls. Pharaoh Akhenaton and Queen Nefertiti in Egypt who believed in one God had elongated skulls.

    StonehegngeElongated Skulls

    Maria has evaluated the remains of the elongated skulls and determined they were all murdered and their long lost history lost. Apparently, a group of invaders decided to eradicate the people of the elongated skulls after they settled the area for hundreds of years. She has also discovered a Neolithic High Queen that was laid to rest in the largest and longest barrow ever constructed in prehistoric Britain. Her book explains the untold history of the elongated skulls and how it was hidden from the Western world.  Website.

    It is thought the elongated skulls found in the Stonehenge area may not be human. They could come from an entirely new species that fits outside of the known evolutionary tree with the capability of advanced technology.

    Cosmic Energy Research reports the people of the elongated skull apparently were able to utilize the energy in the stones to create heat or to formulate them in some way. In Western Europe, sixty fortresses were built using technology that indicates they could melt or form stone.  Arthur C. Clarke has experimentally proved that using the firewood available at that time they could not reach the necessary temperatures to melt the stone. Thus, we can speculate that transforming or accumulating some type of cosmic energy gained the necessary temperature to melt the stone. Cosmic Energy Research also claims it can be derived that by connecting energy sources in a suitable manner, the energy components could also be used for defense purposes. The frequent sightings of UFOs in the area suggest the craft may have also used this energy.

    SkullMars

    The skull shown with teeth was found at West Kennet Long Barrow not far from Stonehenge. The other picture is from NASA showing the skull or a sculptured rock from Mars that suggests Martians or other aliens had elongated skulls. Some areas of Mars have pyramids and Pharaoh like statues. The entire Stonehenge area has exceptional people with elongated skulls that may have come from Mars or some other planet attempting to reproduce similar structures on Mars. They built Silbury Hill the largest prehistoric man-made mound in Europe called the “Hill of the Shining Beings, We know that Mars atmosphere and water diminished with some type of catastrophe and that gravity there is much less than on Earth. Mars gravity is only one sixth of Earths and to launch a spaceship from Mars would be relatively easy compared to a craft leaving Earth.

    WestKennetBarrowCropCircle

    Some of the persons with elongated skulls were buried in the West Kennet Long Barrow a Neolithic tomb , situated on a prominent chalk ridge, near Silbury Hill, one-and-a-half miles south of Avebury in Wiltshire, England. The construction of the West Kennet Long Barrow commenced about 3600 BC, which is some 400 years before the first stage Stonehenge, and it was in use until around 2500 BC. Indiscriminate digging has damaged the mound, but archaeological excavations in 1859 and 1955-56 found at least 46 burials, ranging from babies to elderly persons many with elongated skulls. Hundreds of elongated skulls have now been found of unarmed men killed at ages of 3 to 25 years old indicating genocide.

    Wiltshire is where many crop circles are located with one above the Long Barrow. UFOs and strange phenomena are frequently reported in the area. Some people claim Wiltshire is a portal where craft from other planets arrive.

    Why has the circle always been considered sacred by all peoples throughout time? Whether made of stone, or simply drawn upon a piece of paper, the circular shape continually generates concentric rings of polarized energy, which can be sensed and dowsed.

    Maria Wheatley states, We have studied and understand the archaeology of Avebury; however archaeology alone can never fully answer why such magnificent sites as Avebury, Silbury Hill and Stonehenge, barrows and Cursus were skillfully crafted by our ancient ancestors.

    StoenhengePink

    The prehistoric architects of ancient sites were acutely aware of the Earth’s magnetic energies, which they carefully integrated into the foundation plans of their monuments using a long-lost technology. At Stonehenge, for example, certain megaliths, such as the Altar Stone, were positioned above a geometric earth energy pattern, known as geospiral, to harness the earth force, which perpetually charged the stone with magnetic energy. We can locate these enigmatic patterns in the ritual landscape and begin to sense their energetic power.”

     “Looking through the viewfinder of digital cameras – vertical columns of rose colored light rising up from the ground. Yet, our eyes alone could not see the Earth’s whispering light. This is a reoccurring phenomenon associated with contained earth energy. To understand the wider picture we need to recognize the intimate relationship between the Earth Force and the stones.

    There is quite a lot of evidence pointing to the fact that extraterrestrial civilizations choose to enter our world at specific planetary locations. These are either on ley-lines or on fault lines where the earth’s electromagnetic field is stronger or weaker than in the surrounding area.”

    Note: There is strong evidence that ancient humans worshiped disc shaped and cylinder shaped flying objects. American Indians in Ohio were buried in their mounds with small flat flint circular stones. Although, writing has not been found, it is possible to infer that disc objects observed in the sky became objects of worship. In his scholarly book, “Egyptian Ideas of the Afterlife,” British Egyptologist E.A. Wallis Budge said that the ancient Egyptians were preoccupied with life beyond the grave and that over thousands of years ancient Egyptians had a wealth beliefs concerning immortality and the afterlife.  Ancient Egyptian records described a fleet of UFOs moving across the clear blue sky over ancient Egypt.

    Many underground entrances found on Mars

    MarsEntrances

    By Mary Joyce, website editor reports, Entrance into Mars interior discovered,” more satellite images of Mars entrances have been revealed in a video posted December 5, 2015. At first glance, they may seem to be the same entrance, but a closer look reveals different dimensions as well as different details around the edges of the entryways.

    According to estimates by Stephen Hannard who discovered the first entrance that it is a huge 3700 feet high and 528 feet wide. CLICK HERE to view a nine minute YouTube video about Mars entrances. It shows how the entryways were found and includes commentary. Hidden objects YouTube

    Light from Black Hole

    BlackHole

    Anything falling into black holes cannot escape, not even light, earning black holes their name. However, as disks of gas and dust fall or accrete onto black holes — say, as black holes rip apart nearby stars — friction within these accretion disks can superheat them to 18 million degrees Fahrenheit (10 million degrees Celsius) or more, making them glow extraordinarily brightly. [The Strangest Black Holes in the Universe]Scientists discovered accreting black holes in the Milky Way more than 40 years ago. Previous research suggested that the accretion disks of black holes can have dramatic effects on galaxies. For instance, streams of plasma known as relativistic jets that spew out from accreting black holes at near the speed of light can travel across an entire galaxy, potentially shaping its evolution. However, much remains unknown about how accretion works, since matter can behave in very complex ways as it spirals into black holes, said study  lead author Mariko Kimura, an astronomer at Kyoto University in Japan, and her colleagues.

    To learn more  about the mysterious process of accretion, researchers in the new study analyzed V404 Cygni, a binary system composed of a black hole about nine times the mass of the sun and a companion star slightly less massive than the sun. Located about 7,800 light-years away from Earth in the constellation Cygnus, the swan, V404 Cygni possesses one of the black holes closest to Earth.

    After 26 years during which the system  was dormant, astronomers detected an outburst of X-rays from V404 Cygni in 2015 that lasted for about two weeks. This activity from the accretion disk of V404 Cygni’s black hole briefly made it one of the brightest sources of X-rays seen in the universe.

    Following this outburst, the researchers detected flickering visible light from V404 Cygni, whose fluctuations varied over timescales of 100 seconds to 150 minutes. Normally, astronomers monitor black holes by looking for X-rays or gamma-rays.

    “We find that activity in the vicinity of a black hole can be observed in optical light at low luminosity for the first time,” Kimura told Space.com. “These findings suggest that we can study physical phenomena that occur in thevicinity of the black hole using moderate optical telescopes without high-spec X-ray or gamma-ray telescopes.” Thanks to space.com

     New Jersey Lakehurst Naval Base Sighting

    NJlakehurst

    Near Lakewood Naval Base –I was about 12 or 13 years old in June 1963, when I heard a loud humming and fluctuating sound from my front yard I looked up but trees obstructed my view until the craft slowly moved into view right above the tree tops. It then stopped over me. I felt paralyzed and knew to pay attention to everything I saw. The craft was shaped like a disc, but it tapered in the back to a point. It was a little more round at the top and flatter (but not flat) underneath, like a disc. It had three elongated lights around the front, but were spaced. It was about 30-40 feet in diameter. After a few moments, it moved slowly over me and that is when I saw the back of it. I was very scared, thinking- “What is going to happen to me?

    I felt like those inside knew I was there and they were observing me and had called me outside. The reason I say this is because I can’t understand why no one else in the house came out. It was so loud! After the craft had moved very slowly over me a very short distance, it took off extremely fast. I became completely hysterical, screaming as I ran into the house. I yelled at my parents to call the police the government but nobody believed me. It wasn’t shaped like a plane and didn’t sound like a plane. My dad went out to look around and said he saw a transport plane out there in the distance. NOTE: The above image is a rendering.

    This case is under investigation by Chief Investigator Ken Pfeifer of MUFON New Jersey.

    Sightings in the United States

    California Lights

    CalifBeach20Sep15

    Beach — I didn’t really notice the UFO until I looked closer at the picture.  I was on the beach taking pictures on September 20. 2015.

    An Unidentified Flying Object was captured in the background that moved in the photos. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    CalifFork1Jan16

    North Fork — At 4:18 PM, on January 1 2016, I was taking photographs of the sunset. I did not notice anything in the sky but later I enlarged the photographs, and noticed an object. It appeared to be moving from south to north. I used a Samsung Galaxy 5 phone to take the pictures. The lights on it changed from the pictures and it kept the same shape although a turn was a blur in one of the pictures. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    Colorado Disc

    CO21Ja16Stockton

    Bogota – I did not witness the event but saw the news on Facebook, an hour after it happened on January 24, 2016. I found a video on YouTube, and Twitter. There are five balls emitting intense blue light between 8 and 9 pm, moving in the sky.

    They changed their pattern of flight, sometimes in a V pattern, then in an M pattern. I do not know what happened at the end of the event, if they landed or disappeared behind the trees.

    There are many witnesses. Thanks to MUFON CMS

     Florida Orb

    FL23Apr12

    I saw the airplane and saw something flying beside the plane. I had my camera with me so I shot the photo of the craft.

     I saw how the object was six times faster than the plane flying in the direction of the sea (Is Veschunden.)

    It was so fast. It was a great experience during my vacation on April 23, 2012 and it looks like a planet. Thanks to MUFON CMS

     Maine Object

    ME25Dec15

    Turner –I did not know about this craft until I got home and reviewed the footage a few days later after I shot it on December 25, 2015.

    I also had a night time sighting on January 5, 2016. I was standing by my car on Pearl Street facing Upper Street on cross road. (MUFON Sighting Report 73673). .I would like to thank my two friends in the UK for their help with photo. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    Missouri Orbs

    MOreisterstown21fJan16

    Reisterstown – I was at my house shoveling out my truck with my neighbors on January 21, 2016. I noticed a beautiful cloud formation and started taking photos one after another. Later when admiring the strange looking clouds, I started to see hundreds of orbs and black cone shaped pyramids in the clouds. Please evaluate photos has there is another explanation for these strange clouds and objects. Thanks to MUFON CMS

     New Jersey Triangle

    Bound Brook — I looked out my window at our middle school with tee highway parallel to my apartment building and runs east to west. To the east of my apartment is the Newark airport. Therefore, it is not uncommon to see planes flying low to land at airport. When I went to the window, I saw above the tree line and the school flying west to east 60+ unidentifiable objects on November 8, 2015. Some in formation holding altitude and some not but all moving silently east… I went to get my phone, when I returned I saw at least 60 lights. When I put the phone down, I grabbed binoculars and got a look at the last one. I saw a red triangle glowing with an orange under glow to it. The last one then sped up, moved in a diagonal direction, and disappeared.  However, I know what planes, drones and lanterns look like and they did not fit any of those disruptions. Also my phone wi fi was going in and out, normally this doesn’t happen. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    North Carolina Light

    NCDelco19Jan16

    Delco – On January 19, 2016, I was in the bathroom talking to wife and had this energy come over me and my inner voice said, “Go outside” twice, and then I heard “West”.

    I immediately grabbed my wife and went outside, and took pictures of a Bright Star. It then glided up, turned and seemed to wink at me as it floated away!

    It was amazing for me, but scared my wife! Thanks to MUFON CMS

    Ohio Object

    Ohio Saylor Park16an16

    Saylor Park – On January 19, 2016, the first two pictures show the object behind the jet by about an inch. I first saw the object because of flashes of light that I thought was the sun’s reflection. I watched it move from left of the plane to almost over it, and to in front of the plane. These movements were instantaneous.

    It would disappear and then reappear in the new location. The plane was heading southwest around 8 AM. After a few minutes, I pulled over to take some pictures. In the third picture, it had disappeared from the field of view, but reappeared three more times. I saw two more flashes directly overhead and it bolted to the northern horizon leaving a visible wake in front of it. This object cleared 140 degrees of the sky in less than three seconds.

    Note: If I were looking at the photos alone and did not use the sighting information provided by the witness, I would say that the object is a portion of “un-evaporated” contrail. However, the witness saw the object disappear, reappear and move erratically so this explanation is doubtful. Thanks to William Puckett, Director Http://www.UFOsnw.com

    Oregon Light

    OregonPortland6Jan16

    Portland – On January 16, 2016, the witness was driving southbound on I-205 at 9 PM and noticed a bright slow moving fiery object. He pulled off Highway 14 and took a video.

    He said, “Several vehicles had pulled off the road looking at the object that moved slowly and then disappeared into the clouds.”

    The object was oval shaped and left no smoke trail. The object was visible for three to five minutes. Thanks to William Puckett, Director Website

    Texas Orbs

    TexasColleyville21Jan16

     Colleyville — Two separate craft were both zigzagging then taking off in opposite directions on January 22, 2016.

    I observed them up to up to six different times. Thanks to MUFON CMS

     

    Washington Orb

    WAEverett16 Ja16.

    Everett – On January 16, 2016, I saw seven unidentified flying objects travel over Everett, WA, from south to north. They were not planes, helicopters, drones or anything else I could determine. They were glowing orange, in a round bubble shape and were flying erratically. They were more like hovering with no sound, one after another, about ten seconds apart. They seemed too big and moving too fast to be any kind of Chinese candle. One of them flew in front of the moon just as I was taking the picture.

     Note: The witness has made a good argument that the orbs were not Chinese Lanterns or other flotation devices. The winds aloft were from the south which means that orbs were moving with the wind. This “suggests” that they could have been flotation devices or lanterns. Thanks to William Puckett, DirectorWebsite

    Sightings All Over the World

    Australia Blonde Woman

    Australia9Sep16Sydney

    Sydney — When I was young I had sleep paralysis, and would wake up, but could not move, and had to wiggle a finger until I could break free. Often when I was falling asleep, an electronic sound would fill my ears. I was drawn to light; I often would stare at the bulbs. Once I was staring at the bulb and a fly flew into my eyeball on September 9, 2015. It crawled into my eye, and bopped myself on the back of the head to get it out. When I was 10 years, old a buzz sound came and I saw a beautiful irresistible blonde woman like creature before me. She positioned herself so that I couldn’t see her hands or feet. She was irresistible, I felt intense sexual feelings for her, but she disappeared when I approached. The next time she came to me she allowed me to approach, this but the world burst into a blue flame, exploded into light, then I blacked out.

    This was my sexual awakening. After my experience, women have always been drawn to me, throwing themselves at me since 1981. When I was in the Navy, I had an unexplained object removed from my foot. The doctors said from the x-rays it looked like a sewing needle pieces deep in my left heel. The doctors were being strange about it, but they did say they couldn’t get the last piece. I had no memory of stepping on a sewing needle and why was it now in pieces? Thanks to MUFON CMS
    Kings Langley — I am a police officer for a violent station and I’ve seen and dealt with things no ordinary person would wish upon anyone. But, this actually made me freeze. Because it is extra terrestrial and wasn’t human. I wasn’t scared just frozen. When it knew I was following, it zipped up horizontally into the low grey clouds. I told my close friends and they said NASA sighted a UFO in space hanging over earth on 2 July 2015 so who knows. About 6 am on the 12th of July 2015, I was travelling east along Joseph Banks Drive cross of Whitby Rd Kings Langley. Thanks to Natalie.

    Iceland Light

    Icelandrekavik2Dec15

     Reykjavik — We had a diner reservation at The Pearl Restaurant on December 2, 2015, and decided to take a short cut through some woods. We walked a little before coming to a clearing and saw The Pearl all lit up in front of us. We took some pictures on my IPhone then went inside to eat.
    Afterwards, when looking through the photos, we noticed a rectangular white light to the right of the building. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    Italy Object

    ItalyJan16

    On January 18, 2016, I was at the back of my house and noticed an object along with another long object next to it. The other long object seemed to be emitting black smoke. I then ran inside for my camera. When I returned there was only one object left that I quickly started recording. I had no clue what the object was and was very shocked and startled. It appeared almost round and dark. I went inside, later went out to see the object was still there for only a minute, and then disappeared. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    Kenya Light

    KenyaNarobi21Jan16

    Nairobi –. I was just looking at the sky at school and saw a light flicker quickly in the sky on January 21, 2016.

    I thought it was a shooting star or a light moving in a circular path. It was a light patch, like an orbit in the sky.  It was obvious I was scared when it suddenly just disappeared. Thanks to MUFON CMS

     

    New Zealand Light

    Auckland — I was outside on the balcony of my two-storey home having a cigarette at exactly 9:35 pm on January 21, 2016, when I saw a large yellowish ball of bright light that was bigger than the moon flying through the sky. At first sight, it was just above the treetops. It flew through the sky at a steady pace much faster than a plane or satellite. I called for my mother who was also witness to it. It was completely silent and began ascending towards the moon. It flew further away and became smaller until it was slightly bigger than a star and completely vanished in a blink. I heard neighbors commenting on it and believe they were witness to it as well. The moment it disappeared, I heard numerous car alarms go off from around the neighborhood. I was in complete shock yet excited about the encounter. I have never seen anything like it before and I am 100% certain on what I saw. Thanks to MUFON Thanks to MUFON CMS

    Qatar Lights

     Doha, Katara — the sky was cloudy, I was going to my car after the festival, and I see these two weird looking spherical or diamond shaped objects on January 26, 2015.

    It was around 7 pm, one flying behind and slightly above the other by around 20-40 meters moving in the same speed. The objects had a very dim light on the bottom and then suddenly after they passed us the light increased in intensity like turning a candle on. A very bright white light kept increasing in altitude into cloud cover.  I have witnessed this with a friend and a bunch of people who were also surprised. There was an airplane just seconds before seeing the UFOs. My IPhone 4 was around 70% and after hours, I found my phone totally dead black and not response. I sudden battery failure?? I used my charger and it was fine. It was moving quietly smoothly and disappeared. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    UK/England Flying Objects

    UKhalifax21Jan16

    Halifax — On early evening Friday I was walking my dog in the local park when I noticed that the moon looked good on January 22, 2016,. Using my Samsung Galaxy S4 I took two photos with a gap of about 20 seconds between the pictures of the moon.

    Then I put my phone away and forgot about it until I checked my photos today and spotted something strange. There seemed to be a saucer shaped quickly passing silently in front of the moon. I do not know the objects size. I never noticed anything whilst taking the photos. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    Secret Premonitions of NASA Challenger Flight Director and Crew Revealed

    By Jon Kelly

    NewsInsideOut.com

    Vancouver, BC – An exclusive new video published to YouTube on January 28, 2016, purports to reveal how sleep talking-like mirror-encrypted messages in NASA’s communications link between ground control and seven crew members of the Space Shuttle Challengeranticipated both death and search and recovery operations prior to what has been described as the disintegration of the vehicle’s launch assembly 30 years ago today. Mission STS-51-L Flight Director Jay Greene along with Data Processing Systems Engineer A. F. Algate, Flight Dynamics Officer Brian Perry and Ground Control Engineer N. R. Talbott are named in the video as sources of the involuntary disclosures.

    CBS News reported earlier in their coverage of the anniversary of this historic event how the mother of astronaut Christa McAuliffe wept openly during the launch before any sign of danger in what reporter Lesley Stahl termed a “premonition” of her daughter’s passing. It was CBS Television who would later audit the analytic procedure used to detect what had remained secret Challenger premonitions undiscovered until the publication of today’s new video.

    In multiple closed-door on-camera sessions, journalists and investigative reporters from Cleveland, Ohio’s 19 Action News attempted to discern the mechanism by which this reporter was shown to reveal the secrets of on-air staff and local newsmakers prior to running a story that would garner the station a number one position in the Nielsen sweeps for November, 2006. A sober reading by the anchor who introduced that segment on-air spoke volumes to the lasting impression and respect felt throughout the station for what became one of the great moments in local television news for that season.

    Premonitions of death and disaster populate literature of ancient cultures including Ovid’s “Metamorphoses” and the “Mahabharata” (Skr. “Great India”) of Veda Vyasa. Such portrayals resound with faculties of mind transcendent of time possessing extensive knowledge of the past, present and future intrinsic to human experience of the everyday and the extraordinary. The “Bhagavad Gita” contained within the Mahabharata offers possibly the world’s oldest Remote Viewing transcript as the entire text is composed of a narrative uttered by the seer Sanjaya concerning events taking place on a distant battlefield.

    The presence of previously undiscovered forensic information concerning secret premonitions in NASA’s ground control communications feed was detected while monitoring mirror-filtered renderings of the ground crew statements. The NASA video soundtrack from the space agency’s commemorative resource tape was loaded in the edit bay of a digital audio workstation then subjected to mirror-filtering and time-expansion in preparation for a detailed auditory study. The conduct of this procedure was informed by best practices refined through repeatedly providing military, forensic and medical-grade intelligence that had been successfully vetted through practical real-world feedback over nearly 20 years of unmatched research and reporting.

    NewsInsideOut.com has previously reported how the same procedure publicly revealed details of the Iraq War, identified the BTK Killer, named Russian spy Anna Chapman’s accomplice and uncovered the UFOs and ETs in Edward Snowden’s NSA cache weeks, months and years before such information became widely-accepted public knowledge. Below is a partial transcript of NASA ground control’s statements from January 28 1986, preceded by the pre-incident and post-incident secret messages encrypted backwards therein.

    A death: Data processing systems (DPS) engineer A.F. Algate, mission control, Houston: “Liftoff confirmed.”

    Big mess. A large search for body: Booster systems engineer: “Three at 65.”

    Nesbitt: “… Three good fuel cells. Three good APUs (auxiliary power units)…”

    Flight Director Jay Greene: Sixty-five, FIDO…”

    Flight dynamics officer (FIDO) Brian Perry: “T-del confirms throttles.”

    Greene: “…Thank you.”

    Your crash. Dead now: “FIDO, trajectories…”

    FIDO: “Go ahead.”

    Greene: “Trajectory, FIDO.”

    FIDO: “Flight, FIDO, filters (radar) got discreting sources. We’re go.”

    Ground control engineer N.R. Talbott, mission control: “Flight, GC, we’ve had negative contact, loss of downlink (of radio voice or data from Challenger).”

    Greene: “OK, all operators, watch your data carefully.”

    FIDO: “Flight, FIDO, till we get stuff back he’s on his cue card for abort modes.”

    Greene: “Procedures, any help?”

    Unknown: “Negative, flight, no data.”

    President Reagan in his address to the nation concerning these events affirmed how “The future doesn’t belong to the faint-hearted. It belongs to the brave.” Website Spaceflight Now offers their version of a NASA Challenger incident timeline along with a complete transcript of voice communications conducted that morning’s events.

    Meanwhile in the blogosphere, the astronauts never died but instead lived on to resume normal lives.

    The meeting in the gardens of Castel Gandolo: The Good Pope, he met an alien before his death in 1961.

    Angelo Roncalli, the Good Pope, he met an alien before his death in 1961.
     
    The meeting in the gardens of Castel Gandolo. All witnessed by Loris Francesco Capovilla. The private secretary of Pope John XXIII. The news appeared in a British newspaper and was later taken over by Sun in 1985. But no one paid any attention.
     
    Today that meeting back in the limelight thanks to a video appeared on YouTube. 
     
     
    It goes around the world. That’s the whole story of a “contact” very special. Walked. The lake is a short walk, the silence of one of the most beautiful towns in Italy. Walked. As they had done a thousand times in those beautiful summer afternoon. Side by side. As two friends. How ordinary people. Who want to sit a bit ‘on the sidelines. Out of the daily routine. It was July. One afternoon in July 1961, when it happened. “They had over our heads. Lights. Were colored lights. Blue. Orange. Amber.
     
    A few minutes, and then … “. And then, it happened. The imponderable. The impossible. What is also difficult to tell. So in one breath. The lights are spaceships. The spaceships are discs in the sky blue of an afternoon in Castel any Gandolo. They move silently. Are. For a few minutes on those two figures unmistakable walking side by side. How ordinary people. Then the contact. One of the spacecraft detaches from the flock. Lands. Stops “on the south side of the garden.” The tailgate opens and the cockpit is something out.
     
    ... ‘”absolutely human.” Only. Just … has a light around. A light that surrounds him. Fell to their knees. The two. Then he got up and went without hesitation to Man. Towards that being “absolutely human” wrapped in a soft light and delicate. Penetrating. They talked about. “For about twenty minutes.” But they could not hear those voices. “I did not hear anything.” But talking. Gesticulating. For twenty minutes. 1200, infinite seconds. Then the man turned and went back to where he had arrived. He looked at me. And he wept. 
     
     What do you think?

    UFO Near Space Station Makes Beam Of Light Scanning Earth! Jan 2016, Video, UFO Sighting News.

    Date of sighting: January 28, 2016
    Location of sighting: Earths orbit at ISS

    This UFO was caught by Streetcap1 of Youtube and shows a UFO with a beam of light hitting Earth. The UFO is scanning the planet for some reason, probably trying to calculate the number of life forms/types in the ocean. Human pollution and how fast we destroy our own planet does concern them...since it was theirs long before it was ours.

    Streetcap1 of Youtube.be states: 

    These appeared at the right hand side of the screen briefly then moved out of frame again. I took a still photo of them and sharpened the picture which appears at the beginning and end of this short video. Streetcap1.

    Secret Base Found In Nepal Himalaya Mountains, But Is It Govt Or Alien? Jan 2016, Video, UFO Sighting News.




    Date of sighting: January 28, 2016
    Location of sighting: Kang Tanga Mountain, Nepal
    Coordinates: 27°47'43.40"N 86°49'6.40"E

    This is an excellent discovery by MexicoGeek of Youtube. This dark area on Google map is in the Himalaya mountains. Its along the highest ridge. There are two possibilities why this occurred. 


    First, this could be an open area only visible with high end digital equipment. Meaning this could be a entrance way for UFOs to enter and exit, but a holographic wall is created to cover up so no one will notice it. Its actually on the wall of a cliff, so that not the direction any climber would take. 


    Second, Google may have deliberately covered up this area so that we cannot see a top secret US govt military facility. You say Area 51 is secret...no, thats old school. There are newer and more secret bases located around the globe.

    Watch Classified Video Of An Alien Craft In Phoenix Lights Event

    phoenix-lights

    Former U.S. Air Force aviator has recently leaked a classified military video of the Phoenix Lights UFO phenomenon. It is being claimed that the footage showed a cockpit video of Lockheed-Martin F-16 and Fairchild Republic A-10 Thunderbolt II fighter jets.

    The never-before-seen footage had received a lot of interest from the public as it showed the two fighter jets in action in the night when the famous Phoenix Lights UFO took place 19 years ago. The report further claimed that another footage has been obtained showing multiple civilian casualties.

    Dubbed as one of the largest UFO sightings in North America, the Phoenix lights incident had alarmed thousands of Arizona residents when they apparently saw a massive object in the sky above Phoenix.

    Several eyewitnesses reported a craft in diamond shape hovering over the city for a couple of hours. Until today, questions about the incident are still being asked. The eyewitnesses can still recall the phenomenon clearly, and the newly released video has stirred more tension on the infamous event.

    Multiple internet documentaries have featured government denials of the incident, which has been the subject of intense scrutiny.

    KWBTV news journalist David Collins released the newly leaked video on the internet this weekend. The footage allegedly depicts military and UFO on the night of the 1997 mass sighting in Phoenix.

    Meet the Loon Copter, a Drone That Can Fly and Go Underwater

     Futurism/ M. A
    Loon-copter

    We've seen our fair share of underwater drones before, but drones that are equally nimble in the air and beneath the water's surface are much more rare.

    Enter Loon Copter: A drone that can fly, operate on the surface of water, or dive deep.

    A project from Oakland University's Embedded Systems Research, the Loon Copter operates pretty similarly to other flying drones when airborne. When it lands on water, its buoyancy chamber keeps it floating on the surface, but the drone can also fill the chamber up, making it sink beneath the surface, where it tilts 90 degrees and uses its rotors to move around.

    The drone can resurface by ejecting the ballast water, letting it go airborne once again and take off rom the water's surface.

    The first prototype of the Loon Copter was tested in early 2015; a newer iteration is a semifinalist in the UAE Drones for Good Award, a competition whose finals are held in Dubai in early February.

    Possible uses for such a versatile drone are many, including reconnaissance as well as search and rescue missions. Its advantages over traditional vehicles are many; for example, it's faster than a submarine and it can easily hover over an area of interest.

    There's also room for improvement. The Oakland University team says priorities include extending wireless range underwater, underwater navigation and hull redesign for more efficient diving.

    IN BRIEF

    The Loon Copter is not just any flying drone. It can sink, dive underwater, and then resurface to fly again.

    Flying drones are becoming increasingly popular nowadays, but now a new type of drone takes flying to a higher level. The Loon Copter boasts the ability to fly and dive underwater.

    This drone is a project of the Oakland University’s Embedded Systems Research. As a flying drone, it is pretty similar to the other drones that we have seen in the air. However, the difference comes when it lands on water.

    It has a buoyancy chamber that keeps it afloat on the water. To make it dive underwater, this chamber is filled up with water until it sinks, tilts 90 degrees, and then uses its rotors to move around. To resurface, it ejects the water, allowing it to go airborne once again and take off from directly from the water’s surface.

    DRONES OF THE FUTURE

    The first prototype of the Loon Copter was tested in early 2015; a newer iteration is a semifinalist in the UAE Drones for Good Award, a competition whose finals are held in Dubai in early February.

    Drones are expected to be used for search and rescue missions. This tech could one day be used by lifeguards to help monitor swimmers and even deliver flotation devices when necessary.

    However, the Oakland University team states that they are still in the earlier stages of research and development. To that end, they note that there is till plenty of room for improvement.

    Their priorities include extending wireless range underwater, improving underwater navigation, and working on hull redesign for more efficient diving.

    You can see it in action in the video below:

    This 3D Printed Engine Combustor Just Passed its Hypersonic Test Flight at NASA

    photo credit: Artist's impression of a NASA scramjet concept. NASA

    This is seriously cool. American aerospace company Orbital ATK has tested a 3D-printed hypersonic engine combustor, one that could supposedly be used in a high-speed plane known as a scramjet.

    The test was carried out at NASA’s Langley Research Center, with the combustor being made by a process known as powder bed fusion (PBF). According to Gizmag, this is when "a layer of metal alloy powder is laid down by the printer and a laser or electron beam fuses areas of it by following a digital pattern. Multiple layers are added until the product is finished.

    “Additive manufacturing opens up new possibilities for our designers and engineers,” said Pat Nolan, Vice President and General Manager of Orbital ATK’s Missile Products division of the Defense Systems Group, in a statement. “This combustor is a great example of a component that was impossible to build just a few years ago. This successful test will encourage our engineers to continue to explore new designs and use these innovative tools to lower costs and decrease manufacturing time.”

    In the tests, the combustor was put through high-temperature hypersonic flight conditions in a wind tunnel for 20 days, and it passed with flying colors. Supposedly such a combustor could allow for stable combustion even at speeds of more than Mach 5 (6,200 km/h, or 3,800 mph), achievable by scramjet vehicles.

    It’s unclear what exactly this engine will be used for at the moment, if anything. But in the statement, Orbital said they were exploring “one of several manufacturing methods” such as PBF. 

    A scramjet, or a supersonic combusting ramjet, works by using the intake of oxygen and high speeds to provide the oxidizer for its combustion engine, rather than carrying oxygen like other vehicles. The speed of the vehicle compresses the air, meaning it operates most efficiently at high speeds.

    There have been a few experimental scramjet tests in the past, but no vehicle has ever gone into prolonged operation. A successful scramjet engine could theoretically get from London to New York in a rather brisk 30 minutes.

    IN BRIEF

    A new type of combustor has been manufactured and passed tests with flying colors. Also, it was 3D printed.

    In a press release that came out this past January, Orbital ATK announced that they have successfully tested a 3D-printed hypersonic engine combustor at the NASA Langley Research Center.

    The combustor was produced through an additive manufacturing process known as powder bed fusion or PBF. It was subjected to various high-temperature hypersonic flight conditions for 20 days, which includes one of the longest duration propulsion wind tunnel tests ever recorded for this kind of unit.

    The results of the analysis indicate that the unit has met, or at points even exceeded, all of the test requirements.

    SUCCESSFUL TESTS AT THE LANGLEY RESEARCH CENTER

    A scramjet combustor is one of the most challenging parts of the propulsion system. It houses and maintains stable combustion within an extremely volatile environment. The tests were done to ensure that the PBF-produced part would be robust enough to meet the mission’s objectives.

    “Additive manufacturing opens up new possibilities for our designers and engineers,” said Pat Nolan, Vice President and General Manager of Orbital ATK’s Missile Products division of the Defense Systems Group. “This combustor is a great example of a component that was impossible to build just a few years ago. This successful test will encourage our engineers to continue to explore new designs and use these innovative tools to lower costs and decrease manufacturing time.”

    The tests conducted at the Langley Research Center enabled the company to challenge the new combustor design which was made possible through an additive manufacturing process. Complex geometries and assemblies that once required multiple components can be simplified to a single, more cost-effective assembly.

    However, since the components are built one layer at a time, it is now possible to design features and integrated components that could not be easily cast or otherwise machined.

    PBF is one of several manufacturing methods currently being explored by Orbital ATK and its technology partners. Final assembly of the test combustor was completed at the company’s facilities in Ronkonkoma, New York, and Allegany Ballistics Laboratory in Rocket Center, West Virginia.

    Orbital ATK’s Defense Systems Group is invested in a diverse array of works, from providing precision and strike weapons to advanced propulsion and hypersonics, missile components across air-, sea- and land-based systems, and  other ammunition and related energetic products.

    Star Wars: History and Legacy on Space Exploration


    "That's no moon, it's a space station..." Actually Obi Wan, that IS a moon, it's Saturn’s moon Mimas. It simply resembles the "Death Star" from Star Wars. (Or that's what the Sith Lord would have us believe.)

    A long time ago — roughly four decades — the world was introduced to Jedi knights, lightsabers, droids, Wookies and the Force. 

    "Star Wars" exploded into movie theaters in 1977, and it became an instant hit, eventually spawning a pop-culture empire, including sequels, prequels, books, comics, video games, television series and radio shows. Before long, elements of the space fantasy had an effect on real-life space technology.

    Below is a brief overview of the franchise and its effect on space technology in the decades since.

    Franchise overview

    The "Star Wars" franchise is divided into three sets of films — the originals, the prequels and the sequels — as well as myriad off-canon television series, video games, radio shows and other forms of media. In this article, we will focus on the films.

    The tale, from "a galaxy far, far away," concerns the adventures of young Luke Skywalker, the nephew of a moisture farmer who lives on a desert planet. Luke learns that he is adept at harnessing the Force, described as an "energy field … that binds the galaxy together." He eventually joins the rebellion against the Galactic Empire, along with his newfound allies — two robots ("droids"), C-3PO and R2-D2; Obi-Wan Kenobi, a Jedi knight in seclusion; a smuggler, Han Solo, and his Wookie co-pilot, a large sentient beast named Chewbacca; and a princess and rebel leader, Leia Organa. Luke also encounters Darth Vader, a Jedi knight who has fallen to the dark side, and (— spoiler alert! —) turns out to be Luke's father. 

    With the help of his allies and others in the rebellion, Luke destroys the Death Star, a planet-killing satellite, as well as its bigger, more powerful replacement. In a final showdown, Luke confronts the Emperor and battles Darth Vader, who redeems himself by turning against the Emperor and aiding his son. 

    The original trilogy — later subtitled "A New Hope," "The Empire Strikes Back" and "Return of the Jedi"  was released into theaters between 1977 and 1983. Director George Lucas expressed frustration with the technology of the 1970s and 1980s, and when digital technology came along in the 1990s, he chose to re-edit the originals and in some cases, alter or add scenes. (The most infamous scene came in the first movie. The original version of "A New Hope" has Han Solo shooting the bounty hunter Greedo, while the re-mastered version has Greedo firing first.)

    Lucas also released three prequels between 1999 and 2005 — "The Phantom Menace," "Attack of the Clones" and "Revenge of the Sith" — to chart the path of Darth Vader's rise and fall, and the birth of Luke and (—spoiler alert! —) his twin sister, Leia. In 2012, Disney announced that it would take over the franchise's production and pledged to release several sequel films to the original series. The first of these films, "The Force Awakens," premiered in December 2015. It is set many years after "Return of the Jedi" and concerns the aftermath and legacy of the Empire's defeat.

    As popular culture became entrenched in "Star Wars" references, words, phrases and ideas from the franchise entered the vernacular of science and technology.

    In 1983, President Ronald Reagan proposed the Strategic Defense Initiative, which would use ground- and space-based lasers, particle beams, missiles and other weapons to help protect the United States from attack by nuclear missiles. Critics derisively referred to it as "Star Wars." 

    The defense system would have some parts of it based in space. One idea, according to Encyclopedia Britannica, was Earth- and space-based laser systems that could (simply put) shoot down missiles before they reached their target. The proposal also called for surface-to-air missiles placed beside strategically important locations (such as ICBM silos). The program led to the development of items such as the Extended Range Interceptor, which successfully caught a missile in-flight in testing in 1987. The U.S. Army also had a successful hit-to-kill on a target on the fourth try with a Minuteman missile, in 1984. 

    The program was eventually abandoned. There were concerns that the program violated the anti-ballistic missile treaty that was part of the Strategic Arms Limitation Talks, according to the Cold War Museum. The program was also killed due to budget cuts and lack of results. After $30 billion spent, no laser and mirror system was ever used.  

    In 2007, shuttle Discovery launched Luke Skywalker's lightsaber into space to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the franchise. The ceremonies on the ground surrounding its handover to NASA included appearances by Chewbacca and Imperial stormtroopers.

    Close-up images of Saturn's moon Mimas in our own solar system showed it looks similar to the Death Star, which had a distinctive circle on one side of its sphere shape. In real life, the moons that have these large circles are actually showing off the remnants of a large asteroid smacking into the surface and leaving behind a crater.

    NASA has also referenced "Star Wars" when talking about the moon Iapetus, which also orbits Saturn. "The moon Iapetus, like the 'force' in Star Wars, has both a light side and a dark side," the agency wrote in 2015.

    "Star Wars" is also referenced frequently when speaking about planets with two suns, similar to Luke's home planet, Tatooine. Most of the planets that orbit two stars are huge gas giants, but a handful of planets similar to Earth have been found as well, such as Kepler 16b, Kepler-34b, Kepler 35b. In 2015, a study from the University of Utah suggested these sorts of planets might be more common than was once thought. Simulations showed it was possible that planetesimals — the precursors to planets — could safely orbit in an oval around two stars without necessarily crashing into each other.

    Today, there is a real-life R2-D2 — at least the 21st-century equivalent of it — on the International Space Station (ISS). NASA's humanoidRobonaut 2 is sometimes called R2. It is still in testing, but R2 is intended to flip switches and do other simple science experiments and free up time for the astronauts to do more complicated things. In the future, NASA hopes to outfit a version of the robot to do work outside the space station, rather than sending astronauts out on risky spacewalks.

    C-3PO's role was to serve as a translator for his human companions. While robots aren't quite at that stage yet, in 2013 a Japanese child-like robot called Kirobo (created by university researchers in association with Toyota) had a chat with ISS commander Koichi Wakata about their journey into space. Kirobo is intended to be an interactive robot for lonely people, whether they are astronauts in space far from home, or isolated seniors who are unable to get out of the house very easily. [Photos: Meet Kirobo, Japan's 1st Talking Space Robot]

    In 2006, NASA launched a set of droids to the space station to test synchronized flying in space, and the technology was used by several ISS crews. The droids are intended to be aware of each other and to synchronize their flying so as not to crash into each other, which is technology that could be useful for satellites. In "Star Wars," robots like these were used for lightsaber training.

    There are other, less obvious uses of technology from "Star Wars" being used in space:

    Solar panels: The Empire's TIE fighter spacecraft appear to have solar panels on their outer hulls, which is a technology that NASA uses for many of its Mars probes (including the Opportunity rover on the surface) as well as the International Space Station. Solar panels are most useful on spacecraft that are closer to the sun. This means that a mission such as Rosetta — which chased a comet beyond Mars' orbit — had to have extremely large solar panels to catch the sunlight required. Spacecraft operating farther away require nuclear power.

    Lasers: While lasers are used for combat in "Star Wars," NASA is testing using lasers for high-speed communications between space and the ground. NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter probe, for example, tested out a laser system from the moon and received a picture of the Mona Lisa sent from Earth. NASA is discussing doing laser tests from the International Space Station to increase the flow of communications from the orbiting complex. This would be particularly useful for experiments, which send out quite the amount of data for investigators back home.

    Enormous Structures Might Be Hiding in the Middle of Our Galaxy

    In a Thursday press release, CSIRO astronomer Dr. Keith Bannister said the "lumps" could drastically reshape how we understand how gas exists in our galaxy. "They could radically change ideas about this interstellar gas, which is the Galaxy's star recycling depot, housing material from old stars that will be refashioned into new ones," Bannister said. "Lumps in this gas work like lenses, focusing and defocusing the radio waves, making them appear to strengthen and weaken over a period of days, weeks or months."

    Enormous Structures Might Be Hiding in the Middle of Our Galaxy

    Astronomers believe that these invisible space entities exist some 3,000 light-years away, though the shape of the lumps remain unknown for now. "We could be looking at a flat sheet, edge on," said CSIRO's Dr. Cormac Reynolds, in the release. "Or we might be looking down the barrel of a hollow cylinder like a noodle, or at a spherical shell like a hazelnut."

    As if that conceptional visual isn't mind-imploding enough, scientists believe the invisible structures are also moving at a speed of 30 miles per second.

    And digging deeper into the missing baryon problem, IFL Science explains that one element of the Big Bang Theory suggests that atoms should make up 4% of all matter in the universe. However, after a tally of the matter scientists can see, the amount of matter on paper doesn't add up to 4%. That means that the remaining matter can't be seen. 

    That sounds an awful lot like dark matter. Yet speaking to IFL Science, Bannister said this most recent discovery isn't thought to fall into that category. "The existence of dark matter is often inferred from how galaxies are able to hold themselves together, despite their rotation," IFL Science reports. "These structures are not thought to play a part in that."

    Though much remains to be explained about this discovery, Bannister is hopeful that continued research will advance what scientists understand about the unseeable elements of our solar system. 

    "These structures are real," he said in the release, "and our observations are a big step forward in determining their size and shape."

    Alien skeleton found on Mars: Is this the ultimate proof Mars was inhabited by intelligent beings in the past?

    Are these claims far-fetched or is it possible that someone just made an incredible finding on Mars? Is it possible that UFO hunters have accidentally made one of the best discoveries on the surface of Mars?
     
    Facebook page ‘Journey to the surface of Mars’ has posted yet another incredible and provocative image from the surface of the red planet. In the photograph, taken by NASA curiosity rover, we can clearly observe what eerily resembles a mysterious skeleton on the surface of the red planet.
     
    In the past, numerous images have been posted of mysterious objects on Mars. While some of these images can be explained logically, there are numerous images that defy every logical explanation, and the images presented here could very well be one of those.
     
    Our views about Mars have drastically changed over the past 5 years. From thinking that Mars was an inhospitable and dry planet, we have come to learn that our neighboring planet was in fact very much like Earth in the distant past. Even today, NASA reports that there is liquid flowing water on Mars. Scientists have learned that in the distant past, Mars’ atmosphere was very similar to that of Earth and that the red planet had huge oceans, lakes and rivers, just as our planet has today. Having that said, it isn’t far fetched to theorize that life could have developed on Mars in the distant past.
     
    The original RAW images can be found by clicking here.
     
     
    Dr. John Brandenburg, who has  a Ph.D. in Theoretical Plasma Physics from the University of California and he is currently working as a plasma physicist at Orbital Technologies in Madison Wisconsin believes that in the distant past, the red planet was inhabited by two ancient Martian civilizations, and he calls them Cydonians and Utopians. According to Dr. Brandeburg, these civilizations were massacred in a giant nuclear attack – and evidence of the genocide can still be seen today.
     
    According to Dr. John Brandenburg, there is enough evidence to prove that at least two major nuclear blasts went off on the surface of the red planet in the distant past. The theory proposed by Dr. Brandenburg is based on the traces of uranium and thorium that have been registered on the surface of Mars. This Martian civilization was wiped out by another hostile alien race from elsewhere in the universe.
     
    Dr Brandenburg states: “The high concentration of Xenon-129 atmosphere, the evidence from Krypton-80 and the detected pattern of excess abundance of Uranium and Thorium on Mars surface, relative to Mars meteorites, first seen by the Russians and now confirmed by the Mars Odyssey Spacecraft Gamma Ray Spectrometer, mean that the surface of Mars was apparently the site of massive radiological events, which created large amounts of signature isotopes and covered the surface with a thin layer of radioactive debris enriched in certain elements relative to its subsurface rocks. This pattern of a phenomenon can be explained as due to two large anomalous nuclear explosions on Mars in the past.”
     
    The image discovered by Facebook Page journey to the surface of Mars seems to provide physical evidence that goes hand-to-hand with the theory proposed by Dr. Bradenburg.
     
    In the image, many viewers suggest we can observe a fossilized skeleton on the surface of the red planet, a skeleton that could have belonged to one ancient civilization that inhabited Mars in the distant past.
     
    However, skeptics firmly deny something like this is possible saying that Mars was never inhabited and all of the alleged artificial ‘objects’ and ‘structures’ that have been found on countless NASA images are nothing more the natural formations on Mars.

    BREAKING NEWS: Unidentified flying object shot down by the Indian Air Force at Barmer (VIDEO)

    Officials from the Indian military announced that yesterday, January 26, 2016, a Sukhoi MKI 30 fighter jet of the Indian Air Force has shot down an unidentified balloon-shaped object over Barmer district of Rajasthan, India, after the IAF radar picked it up, setting off alarm.
     
    Metallic objects from the object have been collected for further investigation. The IAF has not confirmed what the object is.
     
     
    Barmer is less than 300 miles from Jaipur, where villagers reported this month mysterious metal balls falling from the sky.
     
    Last year in November similar metal balls fell from the sky in Spain and Turkey and this year on January 9th strange metal balls fell from the sky in Vietnam.

    This article was originally published in 2013.

    In NASA's early years, the agency learned by doing; developing tests and procedures as programs wore on. One test developed and used in the Mercury program was the "plugs-out test," a prelaunch test of the spacecrafts systems through a simulated countdown on launch. It was never considered a dangerous test, but on Jan. 27, 1967, Apollo 1's plugs-out test claimed the lives of the crew.

    Typical for the first flight of a new program, the plan for Apollo 1 was a simple shakedown cruise. The crew — Mercury astronaut Gus Grissom, Gemini veteran Ed White, and rookie Roger Chaffee — would take just the Command and Service Module (CSM) into Earth orbit.

    PHOTOS: 'Lost' NASA Photos Catch Apollo Teams in Training

    The plugs-out test started out routinely with the flight-ready spacecraft mounted on its unfueled Saturn IB rocket. The umbilical power cords that supplied power were removed — the plugs were out — putting the spacecraft on its internal batteries and the crew cabin was pressurized with 16.7 pounds per square inch of pure oxygen.  As the crew entered the spacecraft around 1pm that afternoon, a full launch-day staff of engineers in mission control took their positions for the test. There was also a staff of men in the White Room; the room that gave the astronauts passage to the spacecraft remained attached to the vehicle.

    For the first five hours, minor things interrupted the test. Grissom complained of a foul odor like sour buttermilk in his oxygen unit and at one point a high oxygen flow rate in the astronauts suits tripped an alarm. But these were minor problems compared to the persistent communications problems. Static made conversations between the crew and mission control nearly impossible. Grissom, frustration rising, remarked that they'd never get to the moon if they couldn't talk between two or three buildings.

    Just after 6:31pm that evening, technicians monitoring the spacecraft from Mission Control noticed a sudden increase in oxygen flow and pressure inside the cabin. This irregularity in telemetry was accompanied by a garbled transmission: "Fire," someone said, then "they're fighting a bad fire — let's get out. Open 'er up" or "we've got a bad fire — let's get out. We're burning up." Because of the static, it wasn't even clear who was speaking.

    ANALYSIS: Book Shows Rare Snapshots from NASA's Early Days

    Monitors showing a live video feed of the white room told the story: flames visible through in spacecraft's small window. Crews in the White Room tried to open the hatch, but no one could move the inward opening design against the pressure inside the spacecraft. Three seconds after the crew's first mention of a fire, the CSM's pressure reached a critical point. The hull ruptured, flames poured into the White Room. Telemetry and voice communication from Apollo 1 went silent.

    It was a half hour before firemen and recovery personnel were able to remove the astronauts' bodies; Ed White was found turned around on his couch reaching for the hatch.

    The accident investigation lasted a year. It took two months for technicians to disassemble the spacecraft; it was taken apart piece by piece with everything removed checked against another full Apollo CSM. The accident review board finally determined that a wire over the piping from the urine collection system had arced. In the pure oxygen environment, and with everything inside soaked in pure oxygen, that spark turned into a full fire easily. The pattern of damage suggested that the fire started below the crew's feet, a point out of their line of sight. The best estimates said it took about ten seconds for spacecraft to fill with flames. But it wasn't the fire that killed the crew. Autopsies showed they asphyxiated after their oxygen hoses were severed. They were gone less than a minute after reporting the fire.

    The accident investigation focused on NASA's controversial decision to run a test with a spacecraft under high pressure with pure oxygen. The Apollo CMS' manufacturer, North American Aviation, had recommended NASA not test the spacecraft under pressure, warning of risks of fire, but NASA pressed on and ran the test as it had before all six Mercury flight and all ten Gemini missions. In retrospect, head astronaut Deke Slayton said, it was sheer luck that plugs-out tests in the McDonnell built Mercury and Gemini spacecraft hadn't ended in tragedy. It was an unfortunate oversight that the plugs-out test had never been classified as hazardous. That designation was reserved for tests involving fueled vehicles, hypergolic propellants, cryogenic systems, high pressure tanks, live pyrotechnics or altitude chamber tests.

    The accident led to two significant changes in the Apollo spacecraft. The inward-opening hatch was replaced with a quick-operating, outward opening, lightweight design made of aluminum and fiberglass that could be opened in less that 10 seconds. NASA also changed the spacecraft's cabin atmosphere for pre-launch testing. The 100 percent oxygen was replaced with a mixture of 60 percent oxygen and 40 percent nitrogen, a mixture that was far less supportive of combustion though the astronauts' suits still fed them pure oxygen. After launch, the oxygen/nitrogen mix was gradually replaced with pure oxygen for the duration of the mission.

    No crew ever flew on Apollo 1. The mission was redesignated Apollo 204 and manned missions continued with Apollo 7 in October of 1968. The plugs-out test was never reclassified as hazardous, but Apollo 7's plugs out test was run with the hatch open.

    STERRENKUNDE Astronomen hebben het grootste zonnestelsel tot dusver ontdekt. Het bestaat uit een grote planeet, die er bijna een miljoen jaar over doet om rond zijn ster te cirkelen.

    De gasreus bevindt zich een biljoen kilometer van zijn ster. Zijn baan is daardoor 140 keer groter dan die van Pluto rond onze zon. De voorbije jaren werd een handvol van dergelijke extreme systemen ontdekt, maar dit is veruit het grootste: bijna drie keer zo groot als de vorige recordhouder.

    De planeet, 2MASS J2126-8140, en zijn ster, TYC 9486-927-1, waren al bekend maar astronomen wisten niet dat ze samen hoorden. Dat werd eerder toevallig ontdekt door een internationaal team, tijdens een studie naar jonge sterren en bruine dwergen. Details van het onderzoek verschijnen binnenkort in het vakblad Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society.

    "Grote verrassing"

    • 'Ze zijn zo zwak met elkaar verbonden dat om het even welke nabije ster hun baan volledig verstoord zou hebben'
    • Simon Murphy, onderzoeker

    Toen de onderzoekers vaststelden dat zowel de planeet als de ster zich op ongeveer honderd lichtjaren van de aarde bevonden, zijn ze de beweging van de twee gaan vergelijken. Zo constateerden ze dat ze samen bewogen. 

    De planeet is ongeveer 12 tot 15 keer zo groot als Jupiter. "Het was een grote verrassing dat een object met een dergelijke kleine massa zich zo ver van zijn centrale ster bevindt", zegt onderzoeker dr. Simon Murphy van de Australische National University. "Dit zonnestelsel kan zich onmogelijk op dezelfde manier gevormd hebben als het onze."

    De onderzoekers speculeren dat de ster en de planeet zich 10 tot 45 miljoen jaar geleden vormden uit een filament van gas dat ze samen in dezelfde richting duwde. "Ze kunnen niet in een dichtbevolkte omgeving geleefd hebben", klinkt het. "Ze zijn zo zwak met elkaar verbonden dat om het even welke nabije ster hun baan volledig verstoord zou hebben."

    UFO veroorzaakt uitbarsting  vulkaan in Mexico ( VIDEO )

    Naast de vreemde lichten bij de piramides en de bizarre geluiden in de lucht zien we nu heel gekke dingen bij een vulkaan in Mexico. 

    De webcam van de Colima vulkaan laat zien dat deze “slaapt” totdat er een cilindervormige UFO in beeld komt. 


    De afgelopen weken zijn spannend geweest want niet alleen is er opeens bekendgemaakt dat er een nieuwe planeet zou zijn ontdekt in ons zonnestelsel, ook gebeuren er allerlei andere merkwaardige dingen die wellicht te maken kunnen hebben met de nadering van de onbekende planeet Nibiru. 

    Zaken die niemand kan uitleggen met “wetenschappelijke” verklaringen zoals de vreemde lichten op aarde en Mars en de bizarre geluiden die wereldwijd worden waargenomen. 

    Ook de steeds heftiger wordende aardveranderingen vallen voor een deel in die categorie en dat geldt zeker voor de vulkanen op deze aarde. Het lijkt alsof er talloze vulkanen zijn die een lange winterslaap hebben gehouden en die nu ineens weer klaarwakker zijn. 

    Net zoals de piramides die door middel van vreemde lichtstralen lijken te reageren op iets. 

    Eén van de vulkanen die de afgelopen jaren weer heel actief is geworden, is de Colima vulkaan in Mexico. 

    Mexico is ook het land bij uitstek voor buitenaardse objecten en dat gaat ook zeker op voor de vulkanen in Mexico zoals de beroemde Popocatépetl waar op regelmatige basis UFO’s worden gesignaleerd en waarvan ufologen denken dat er zich onder de vulkaan een buitenaardse basis bevindt. 

    Eenzelfde verschijnsel doet zich ook voor bij de Colima vulkaan. Daar werd op 3 januari van dit jaar een cilindervormige UFO gesignaleerd die over de vulkaan vloog waarbij het leek alsof deze een uitbarsting veroorzaakte. 

    Het zag er ongeveer als volgt uit:


    ufo colima vulkaan 1


    ufo colima vulkaan 2


    ufo colima vulkaan 3

    Volgens ufoloog Scott Waring lijkt het alsof de UFO iets of iemand transporteert naar of van een buitenaardse basis onder de vulkaan die daarop reageert door een uitbarsting van vuur en lava. 

    Wanneer je de video bekijkt dan is de vulkaan inderdaad rustig tot de ufo in beeld komt en na de uitbarsting en de passage van de UFO wordt het wederom rustig. 

     
    In een artikel van ons gisteren werd duidelijk dat ook de Maya’s bekend waren met de omloopbaan van de planeet Nibiru. Dit is bekend geworden door voorwerpen die in Mexico zijn gevonden. 

    Ook het bovenstaande speelt zich af in Mexico en wie weet is ook hier een verband te leggen tussen de vreemde gebeurtenissen bij de Colima vulkaan en de komst van Nibiru. 

    Evert Jan Poorterman, auteur bij ons met zijn Anunnaki serie, stuurt nog de volgende aanvulling op zijn opmerking gisteren aangaande de ontdekking van een nieuwe planeet en het feit dat deze al veel eerder bekend was. 

    Het was de Amerikaan Clyde Tombough die in 1930 de planeet Pluto ontdekte. Tombough vergeleek fotografische platen met behulp van ‘blink-comparator’ toen hij werkzaam was in het Lowell Observatory in Flagstaff, Arizona. De afwijkingen op de platen toonden aan dat er een planeet moest zijn. Niet een optische waarneming door een telescoop leverde het resultaat op, maar een theoretische aanname, gebaseerd op nauwgezet speurwerk van negatieven leidde tot de ontdekking van planeet Pluto. 

    In 1978 kwamen enkele resultaten bij elkaar. De Voyager2 seinde beeldmateriaal naar NASA en daaruit bleek dat Pluto veel kleiner was dan aangenomen. Men ging er van uit dat Pluto een doorsnede had van ca. 6.000 Km. (bijna even groot als planeet Mars – 6.794 Km.) en nu bleek Pluto slechts 2.400 Km. in doorsnee te zijn... begeleidt door een kleinere planeet; Charon (1.207 Km.). We zouden Pluto en Charon kunnen zien als een ‘dubbelplaneet’, maar ook als een planeet met een satelliet. 

    Inmiddels weten we dat Pluto wel vijf satellieten heeft (zeg nooit ‘maantjes’, want der is in ons stelsel maar één Maan! Alle andere begeleiders van planeten moeten we dan ook ‘begeleiders’ noemen of gewoon satellieten). En de andere ‘ontdekking’ was die van de twee astronomen van het Marine Observatory in Washington... en tegelijkertijd ontdekte James Christy van het U.S. Naval Observatory (ook Flagstaff, Arizona) planeetje Charon. De twee astronomen in Washington verbaasden zich over de kleinheid van Pluto... 

    (gingen uit van 6.000 Km. in doorsnee) en stelden dat ze Pluto niet langer konden zien als de ‘veroorzaker’ van de schommelingen in de banen van Neptunus en Uranus. En als het kleinere Pluto niet de veroorzaker was... wie was het dan wel. En op dat moment komt Zecharia Sitchin in het verhaal; bezoekt de beide astronomen... en in 1983 lanceert NASA ‘warmtezoeker’ IRAS. Sitchin schrijft; 

    ‘Natuurlijk maakte ik de marine-astronomen opmerkzaam op de Soemerische bewijzen, die in dit boek neergelegd zijn. Ze meenden dat de aanwezigheid van een grotere planeet – de verklaring zou kunnen zijn. Enkele weken geleden werd mij meegedeeld, dat deze mogelijkheid zo ernstig genomen werd, dat men nu – een zoeken naar zo’n planeet – begonnen was... naar ‘mijn’ Twaalfde Planeet! Met andere woorden; gezaghebbende astronomen hebben ingezien dat de Soemeriërs 6.000 jaren geleden meer wisten dan wij nu’...

    Here’s one new daytime footage of a bright object flying across the sky above San Antonio in Texas. This was filmed on 23rd January 2016.

    Witness report: Here is some Undeniable U.F.O Evidence of a UFO Orb Monitoring an Area over San Antonio,Texas…This U.F.O was clearly Under Intelligent Control…Sighting lasted about 10 min it Traveled in a Controlled Manner while Rotating in Place….As if it was Monitoring the Area you can see how it travels in a Constant Speed..At times it Stops/Hover then Change Direction…At one point it Descends clearly Under Some Sort Of Control..With Perfect Points Of Reference we can see the altitude it was traveling Speed/Direction.I followed until it was out of sight…..In my opinion this object is clearly not an aircraft or weather balloon/satellite..

    CIA Compiles Its Real-Life ‘X-files,’ Including UFO Sighting by German Mayor

    In Beyond Science, Epoch Times explores research and accounts related to phenomena and theories that challenge our current knowledge. We delve into ideas that stimulate the imagination and open up new possibilities. Share your thoughts with us on these sometimes controversial topics in the comments section below.

    The CIA rode the X-Files trend and published lists of its top declassified UFO documents last week.

    The lists, titled “Top 5 CIA Documents Mulder Would Love to Get His Hands On” and “Top 5 CIA Documents Scully Would Love to Get Her Hands On,” feature cases from the late 1940s to 1950s.

    This was a period of intense CIA interest in unidentified flying objects (UFOs). Around the same time, the Air Force recorded 12,618 sightings, of which 701 remain “unidentified,” as part of Project Blue Book.

    Former CIA Chief Historian Gerald K. Haines is quoted by the CIA as saying: “While the Agency’s concern over UFOs was substantial until the early 1950s, CIA has since paid only limited and peripheral attention to the phenomenon.”

    One of the cases is titled “Flying Saucers Reported Over East Germany, 1952.”

    Former mayor of Gleimershausen, Germany, Oscar Linke reported a UFO sighting. The report reads: “According to this story, an object ‘resembling a huge flying pan’ and having a diameter of about 15 meters [16.5 yards] landed in a forest clearing in the Soviet Zone of Germany.”

            " An object ‘resembling a huge flying pan’ and having a diameter of about 16.5 yards landed in a forest clearing in the Soviet Zone of Germany."

    The tire had blown on his motorcycle while he was riding with his 11-year-old daughter. As they were pulled off on the side of the road, he saw two men about 45 yards away.

    He reported: “They seemed to be dressed in some shiny metallic clothing. They were stooped over and were looking at something lying on the ground.”

    MORE:

    Linke moved closer, until he was about 10 yards away. “I looked over a small fence and then I noticed a large object whose diameter I estimated to be between 13 and 15 meters [14–16 yards]. It looked like a huge frying pan.

    “There were two rows of holes on its periphery, about 30 centimeters [1 foot] in circumference. The space between the two rows was about 0.45 meters [17 inches]. On the top of this metal object was a black conical tower about 3 meters [10 feet] high.”

    The two figures noticed him when his 11-year-old daughter called to him. They got into the machine. He’d noticed that one of them “had a lamp on the front part of his body which lit up at regular intervals.”

    Part of the machine started to glitter, with green light that turned red. He heard a humming.
    The conical part moved from the top to the bottom of the object. It spun as it rose into the air, apparently surrounded by flames.

    Linke later checked the ground where he had seen the machine and saw that it was freshly marked.

    The report states: “Many other persons who live in the same area as Linke later related that they saw an object which they thought to be a comet.”

    “I had never heard of the term ‘flying saucer’ before I escaped from the Soviet Union into West Berlin,” Linke said. “When I saw this object, I immediately thought that it was a new Soviet military machine.”

    Secret Space Program And The Secret Black Budget

    Most of the people are now fully aware that the Secret Space Program do exist, but how do they get all their money? And they need a lot of it! Well it is rather easy: They steal it from the government budget like a thief would rob a bank, and they don’t mind if people get killed along the way.
     
    Remember the day before the 9/11 attacks? Donald Rumsfeld announced that 2.3 trillion dollars had disappeared from the Pentagon!

    And what about all that gold missing from the WTC before 9/11:

    Very convenient to have these attacks exactly where the money went missing. Yes, the Pentagon’s accounting offices which dealt with the missing trillions were the one hit with the missile…
     
    Why so much money? Well, they are building all sorts of crafts like the TR-3B, bases on the moon, and even underground military bases. The money that goes into these programs are for what’s called Special Access Programs (SAP). Some of these are completely unacknowledged. In fact, 1997 US Senate report described them as  ”so sensitive that they are exempt from standard reporting requirements to the Congress (Dolan, M. Richard and Zabel, Bryce. A.D. After Disclosure. New Page Books. 2012)
     
     
    Also Phil Schneider was assassinated for bringing us the truth about the secret underground bases:

    Let’s have a listen to the ex-defence minister in Canada: Hon. Paul Hellyer, he is certainly a man in the know:

     

    And this has been going on for a very long time, only the high elite know about this, like the MJ-12, Rothschild and some members of the Bilderberg group, some of them are still working with alien species, the following video is a must-watch:

    Bob Dean, a Retired Command Sargent Major and Supreme Allied Commander of NATO once stated:“Ladies and gentlemen, my government, NASA, which many of us in the United States say stands for Never A Straight Answer, proceeded to erase 40 rolls of film of the Apollo Program — the flight to the Moon, the flight around the Moon, the landings on the Moon, the walking guys here and there. They erased, for Christ’s sake, 40 rolls of film of those events. Now we’re talking about several thousand individual frames that were taken that the so-called authorities determined that you did not have a right to see. Oh, they were ‘disruptive,’ ‘socially unacceptable,’ ‘politically unacceptable.’ I’ve become furious. I’m a retired Command Sergeant Major. I was never famous for having a lot of patience.”
     
    And finally, let’s never forget what Gary McKinnon has found on the Pentagon and NASA’s computers. He has risked his life to bring us the ugly truth that so much is done in secrets, we are being kept in the dark by a very evil and secretive cabal, this has to stop now!

    CONSPIRACY THEORIES: THE ODDS AGAINST ARE ASTRONOMICAL ACCORDING TO SCEPTICS

    Major conspiracy theories such as a faked Moon landing cannot be true or they would have been exposed within a few years a scientist has concluded.
     
     Dr David Grimes, an Oxford University physicist, worked out a mathematical formula to calculate the chances of a plot being leaked by a whistle-blower or accidentally uncovered. 
     
    He was able to show that the more people involved in a conspiracy, the shorter its lifespan is likely to be. 
     
    For a plot to last five years, the maximum number of plotters turned out to be 2,521. To keep a scheme undetected for more than a decade, fewer than 1,000 people could be involved, while a century-long deception had to include fewer than 125 collaborators. 
     
    Since Neil Armstrong became the first man to walk on the Moon in 1969, conspiracy theorists have proposed that the landing was faked. They point to photographs showing the American flag blowing in the breeze, despite there being no atmosphere and the fact the astronauts' shadows do not match the lunar module light source. 
     
    But applying Dr Grimes' formula to the Moon landings, which would have involved an estimated 411,000 people who worked at Nasa, any hoax would have been found out in three years and eight months.
     
     "It is common to dismiss conspiracy theories and their proponents out of hand but I wanted to take the opposite approach, to see how these conspiracies might be possible," said Dr Grimes. "To do that, I looked at the vital requirement for a viable conspiracy - secrecy." Dr Grimes's conspiracy equation factored in conspirator numbers, length of time, and even the effects of conspirators dying, whether of old age or non-natural causes.
     
     Also required was a realistic estimation of any one individual disclosing a conspiracy. This was based on three genuine conspiracies, including the United States' National Security Agency Prism spying programme revealed by whistleblower Edward Snowden.
     
     Dr Grimes, whose research appears in the online journal Public Library of Science ONE, said his work was inspired by the numerous communications he receives from people who believe in science-related conspiracies.
     
     "A number of conspiracy theories revolve around science," he said. "While believing the Moon landings were faked may not be harmful, believing misinformation about vaccines can be fatal. Not everyone who believes in a conspiracy is unreasonable or unthinking. I hope that by showing how eye-wateringly unlikely some alleged conspiracies are, some people will reconsider their anti-science beliefs.
     
     "If we are to address the multitudinous difficulties facing us as a species, from climate change to geopolitics, then we need to embrace reality over ideologically motivated fictions. To this end, we need to better understand how and why some ideas are entrenched and persistent among certain groups despite the evidence, and how we might counteract this.
     
    Four famous conspiracy theories and the length of time it would take before their secrets leaked out into the public domain: 
     
    Moon-landing hoax
     
     Many people still believe that Nasa faked its Apollo missions, and has never landed a man on the Moon. 
     
    However, Nasa had 411,000 employees at the time of the Moon landing and one of them should have blown the whistle within three years and eight months. 
     
    Cancer cure cover-up
     
     It has been claimed that big pharmaceutical companies are hiding a cure for cancer to maintain profits for chemotherapy drugs.
     
     But if everyone from Novartis, Pfizer, Roche, Sanofi, Merck and Co, and Johnson and Johnson, to GlaxoSmithKline and AstraZeneca were involved it would amount to 714,000 people and the story would get out within three years and three months. 
     
    Climate change fraud
     
     If man-made climate change was a myth, a huge number of scientists, academics and policymakers would need to be involved in the cover up.
     
     Including members of the American Geo-Physical Union, American Academy for Advancement of Science, European Physical Society, the Royal Society, and Nasa, as well as published climate scientists, 405,000 would have to keep quiet. That would be possible only for three years and nine months. 
     
    Unsafe vaccine conspiracy
     
     If unsafe vaccines were being produced, a cabal of the Centre for Disease Control the World Health Organisation, and almost certainly pharmaceutical companies would be needed adding up to 736,000 people. Such a plot would crumble within three years and two months

    NASA's Cassini probe has begun reshaping its orbit around Saturn in preparation for the spacecraft's "grand finale" at the ringed planet next year.

    Cassini performed a 35-second engine burn on Saturday (Jan. 23) to set up an orbit-changing Feb. 1 flyby of Saturn's huge moon Titan. It was the second of five such burns Cassini will conduct, all of which will be followed by a close encounter with Titan.

    "Titan does all the heavy lifting," Cassini project manager Earl Maize, of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, California, said in a statement. "Our job is to get the spacecraft to a precise altitude and latitude above Titan, at a particular time, and these large propulsive maneuvers are what keep us on target to do that."

    Calltech researchers find evidence of Zecharia Sitchin’s PlanetX/Nibiru in our solar system

    Caltech's Konstantin Batygin, an assistant professor of planetary science, and Mike Brown, the Richard and Barbara Rosenberg Professor of Planetary Astronomy, have found evidence of a giant planet tracing a bizarre, highly elongated orbit in the outer solar system beyond Pluto.


    The object, which the researchers have nicknamed Planet Nine, has a mass about 10 times that of Earth and orbits about 20 times farther from the sun on average than does Neptune (which orbits the sun at an average distance of 2.8 billion miles). In fact, it would take this new planet between 10,000 and 20,000 years to make just one full orbit around the sun.

    The researchers discovered the planet’s existence through mathematical modeling and computer simulations but have not yet observed the object directly however they noted that the putative planet Nine—at 5,000 times the mass of Pluto—is sufficiently large that there should be no debate of the existence of this planet.  

    Furthermore, there is an unique configuration of six objects which fall within the same plane as planet Nine, however, planet Nine is required to be anti-aligned to the six objects, but shares the same plane. Read more at Calltech.edu.

    Even NASA’s Director of Planetary Science, Jim Green, made a statement of the discovery of this planet Nine saying ‘there is a so-called planet X out there’ (second video).

    For many years conspiracy theorists have been saying that there is another unknown planet, what they call PlanetX or Nibiru, on a long and elliptical orbit.

    The Calltech researchers call it Planet Nine or ‘Ninth Planet’ but if we follow Zecharia Sitchin’s claim, it is the tenth planet and according to his theories of Sumerian cosmology, Nibiru or planet X was the twelfth member in the solar system family of planets (which includes 10 planets, the Sun, and the Moon).

    Regardless of your view, here’s the order of the planets, starting nearest the sun and working outward through the solar system:

    Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto = 9
    Planet Nine = 1
    Moon and Sun = 2

    Despite led scientists reclassified Pluto as a dwarf planet we cannot deny that this newly discovered planet supports Zecharia Sitchin’s theory of the existence of a tenth planet (twelve which includes the sun and moon) aka Nibiru/PlanetX.

    Europe to Invest in Sierra Nevada's Dream Chaser Cargo Vehicle

    PARIS — Sierra Nevada Corp.'s win of a NASA contract to ferry cargo to the International Space Station will trigger a $36 million investment by the 22-nation European Space Agency following a cooperation agreement to be signed in the coming weeks, ESA said.

    Once the agreement is signed, ESA will begin work building the first flight model of the International Berthing and Docking Mechanism (IBDM), which Sierra Nevada's Dream Chaser Cargo System will use to attach itself to the space station.

    ESA said it would spend 33 million euros ($36 million) to complete the design of the IBDM and build a flight model for Dream Chaser's first cargo run. Future IBDMs will be financed by Sierra Nevada, ESA said. [Dream Chaser: A Private Space Plane in Pictures]

    Sierra Nevada Corporation is developing its Dream Chaser spaceplane to ferry astronauts to Earth orbit and to the International Space Station. <a href=

    ESA and Sierra Nevada in early 2014 agreed to adapt the IBDM to Sierra Nevada's winged Dream Chaser, which was originally designed to carry astronauts and more recently has been adapted for unmanned cargo missions.

    The agency spent about 8 million euros on the early work, which slowed after Sierra Nevada failed to win a NASA contract to send commercial crews to the space station.

    Sierra Nevada VP Mark Sirangelo and Johann-Dietrich Woerner, then head of Germany's DLR, sign a Memorandum of Understanding to cooperate on the Dream Chaser space plane. Woerner now heads ESA, which is investing in Dream Chaser.

    ESA said it had spent some 20 million euros in total in recent years working on IBDM and on preparatory work for Dream Chaser.

    But Sierra Nevada's surprise Jan. 14 win of the second round of NASA's Cargo Resupply Services (CRS-2) business, which promises at least six missions to the space station for the Dream Chaser Cargo System through 2024, breathed new life into the agreement.

    ESA Director-General Johann-Dietrich Woerner said the NASA contract revives not only the IBDM collaboration, but also studies of future launch of the Dream Chaser inside the fairing of Europe's Ariane 5 rocket.

    Louisville, Colorado-based Sierra Nevada Space Systems has designed the Dream Chaser in configurations to launch aboard  United Launch Alliance Atlas 5 and the European Ariane 5 rockets. To fit under the Ariane 5 fairing, the Dream Chaser would fold its wings.

    "There is a memorandum of understanding not only with ESA and SNC, but also between SNC and some of the other national space agencies [in Europe]," Woerner said during a Jan. 18 press briefing here. "These are looking at different technologies, coming from Europe, to be used in Dream Chaser, as well as using Dream Chaser for European purposes such as microgravity research.

    "There is also the launching aspect," Woerner said. "The idea is to have Dream Chaser also launched with an Ariane. We have checked and that is possible. There is already a plan to have folded wings. There was some discussions about whether this would be possible with astronauts, but that is not what we are discussing now, although even that would be possible."

    Before arriving at ESA in July 2015, Woerner was head of the German Aerospace Center, DLR. In April 2015 he signed a cooperation agreement with Sierra Nevada Corp.

    In response to SpaceNews inquiries, DLR said Jan. 22 that NASA's selection of Dream Chaser for cargo supply would not trigger any immediate investment by the German agency.

    "DLR appreciates that Dream Chaser will now get its chance to prove itself in real-life service," DLR said. "It is an innovative concept. However, no immediate actions on DLR's side are foreseen. We will closely monitor the progress of the Dream Chaser project and we will evaluate if a more involved cooperation makes sense for both parties. No formal contract is foreseen, and thus no budget is allocated to this kind of work."

    New 5.000-year-old Egyptian Inscriptions Found Rewrite Egyptian History

    About 60 drawings and hieroglyphic inscriptions, dating back around 5,000 years, have been discovered at a site called Wadi Ameyra in Egypt’s Sinai Desert.

    Carved in stone, they were created by mining expeditions sent out by early Egyptian pharaohs, archaeologists say. They reveal new information on the early pharaohs.


    For instance, one inscription the researchers found tells of a queen named Neith-Hotep who ruled Egypt 5,000 years ago as regent to a young pharaoh named Djer. Archaeologists estimate that the earliest carvings at Wadi Ameyra date back around 5,200 years, while the most recent date to the reign of a pharaoh named Nebre, who ruled about 4,800 years ago.

    The inscriptions carved by a mining expedition show that queen Neith-Hotep stepped up as ruler about 5,000 years ago, millennia before Hatshepsut or Cleopatra VII ruled the country.

    An inscription found at Wadi Ameyra shows that Memphis, an ancient capital of Egypt that was also called "the White Walls," is older than originally believed. Ancient Greek and Roman writers claimed that Memphis was constructed by a mythical king named Menes, whom Egyptologists often consider to be a real-life pharaoh named Narmer, Tallet explained.

    The new inscription shows that Memphis actually existed before Narmer was even born.

    UFO Shot Down By Rajasthan Military Jets, Jan 26, 2016, Videos, UFO Sighting News.



    Date of sighting: January 26, 2016
    Location of sighting: Barmer, Rajasthan

    Its not everyday a UFO gets shot down. This one is thought to be a balloon with a bomb tied to it. It looks like a giant cloud orb to me. Sometimes if they are struck by lightning, they can malfunction and fall to the earth. This one...disintegrated except for two sharp finger size metal objects. Its was a enough of a threat that they called out fighter jets to shoot it down. At 9 feet in diameter (3 meters) it would be hard not to see. It took 97 shots and no harmful payload was found. Why would they care about a balloon? And it did show up on radar. If balloons were a threat, Los Angeles, CA would have a squadron of fighters jets at war in the sky over Disneyland.

    News states:
    The suspicious object flying over Jaisalmer in Rajasthan on Tuesday, that led to Indian Air Force (IAF) fighter jets and helicopters scramble for it and shoot it down, turned out to be a helium-filled balloon with 'Happy Birthday' written on it. IAF said in a statement on Wednesday that "On 26 Jan, an IAF radar had picked up an unidentified flying object moving easterly in Jaisalmer area. 


    A fighter jet intercepted the object which was found to be a balloon of about 3-metre diameter. Due to heightened security alert, the balloon was shot down as it would have been carrying unknown payload." "However, on analysis of the debris, it was established that there was no dangerous payload," the IAF release said further. Reliable sources in IAF added that the object was detected by radars at 25,000 feet. At first, two Mi-17 choppers were launched to engage the object but since it was flying at a level higher than the helicopters could go, two Sukhoi-30 jets flew from Jodhpur airbase to get it. 



     "The balloon was shot down within 15 minutes of it being detected and a total of 97 rounds were fired from the aircraft," said a source. Even as sources said that the balloon came from across the India-Pakistan border, defence minister Manohar Parrikar told reporters here, "Our radars picked up a shiny flying object entering our air space. A fighter jet was quickly scrambled which intercepted it and shot it down". He, however, refused to elaborate further. The IAF said that it is investigating reports of cracks in some houses at Gugdi town in the neighboring Barmer district even as residents claimed it happened due to "bombs" that were dropped from fighters.
