    Aliens May Know We Exist Because Humans Have Not Hidden Where Earth Is

    What would it take to hide an entire planet? It sounds more like a question posed in an episode of “Star Trek” than in academic discourse, but sometimes the bleeding edge of science blurs with themes found in science fiction.

    Of course we’ve been leaking our own position to distant stars via radio and television signals for six decades now, largely ignorant of the cosmic implications. But several notable scientists, such as Stephen Hawking, have publicly voiced concerns about revealing our presence to other civilizations. These concerns largely draw from the darker chapters of our own history, when a more advanced civilization would subjugate and displace a less advanced one.

    It might be too late for us to withdraw back into invisibility, but maybe not for other intelligent alien civilizations out there. A far-off planet’s inhabitants might prefer to hide from the likes of us. Recently, my graduate student Alex Teachey and I published a paper that proposes a way to cloak planets, as well as a way to broadcast a civilization’s existence. Even if we’re not manipulating our own signal in this way, it doesn’t mean other planets out there aren’t. It’s possible what we see as we scan the universe for other habitable planets has been engineered to disguise or highlight the existence of other civilizations.

    When a planet passes between us and its star, the star’s light seems to dim.

    Tracking transits to find other planets

    Before we talk about how to hide a planet from distant voyeurs, consider the best way we’ve figured out to find one.

    Humanity’s most successful technique for detecting other planets is the transit method. A transit occurs when a planet appears to pass in front of its parent sun, blocking out some of its starlight for a few hours. So if we have our telescopes trained at one part of the universe and a star seems to fade out for part of a day, that tells us that a planet has temporarily come between us as it goes about its orbit.

    Using this technique, NASA’s Kepler Mission has discovered several thousand planets.

    It seems likely that any advanced civilization would be aware of this simple method. Each time a planet transits its star, its existence is essentially being advertised to all points lying along the same plane as the planet and star.

    An advanced civilization might be okay having its planet’s location, size and even atmospheric chemistry advertised across the cosmos. Or it might wish to conceal its presence. If the latter, it might choose to build a cloak.

    The Kepler Mission identified 4,696 planet candidates by July 2015. 

    NASA Ames/W. StenzelCC BY

    A planetary invisibility cloak

    It turns out that hiding planets from the transit method would be surprisingly easy, so easy that we earthlings could do it right now, if we chose. Since transits appear as a brightness decrease of a distant star, our hypothetical cloak simply produces the opposite brightness increase.

    Lasers provide an efficient means of countering that dip in brightness. All a laser’s power is contained in a relatively narrow beam, as opposed to spreading out in all directions like starlight does. Due to the way light spreads as it travels – called diffraction – the laser beam would spread to encompass entire solar systems after journeying many light years across space, bathing that distant planetary system within the cloaking beam. No dip in brightness makes it look like there’s no planet there at all.

    A laser cloak capable of hiding the Earth from an alien version of NASA’s Kepler Mission would require 30 megawatts of power at peak intensity, approximately equivalent to 10 wind turbines worth of power output.

    While Kepler sees light in only one color, advanced civilizations might use more sophisticated detectors capable of collecting light at all wavelengths. Here too, our current technology could cloak us using modern tunable lasers, for a cost of about 10 times more power overall. More advanced civilizations might be able to detect other fine details of the light’s properties, betraying the cloak. But here too there’s no reason why with a little bit of work we couldn’t engineer solutions, leading to a near perfect cloak which could be targeted at distant stars where we suspect someone might be home.

    Why choose to hide

    So yes, it sounds like science fiction, but even current technology could do a fine job of cloaking the Earth’s transit signature.

    Forget the Earth though; we never really thought of this as something humanity should or should not do. Instead, we posit that if our rudimentary human technology can build such an effective transit cloak at relatively little economic cost, then more advanced civilizations may be able to hide from us with respect to all detection techniques. The universe might not be all that it seems.

    Why might a civilization choose to wrap itself in invisibility? It could be a sort of insurance policy: find the nearby planets with potential for supporting life and turn on a targeted cloak – just in case a civilization ever emerges. Such a policy effectively buys them time to reveal their presence when they see fit.

    Given how cheap such a cloak would be, an insurance policy for your home planet is perhaps not as strange as it seems. It’s certainly not implausible a civilization might want to bide its time – surveilling the neighbors for a while before rolling out the intergalactic welcome mat. But there’s a flip side to this technology that could turn it from an invisibility cloak into more of a we-are-here spotlight.

    We think we know what it means when we see certain transit signals….

     NASA Goddard Space Flight CenterCC BY

    The reverse: flick on the beacon

    Perhaps not all civilizations are xenophobic – some might want to talk. If you wanted to reveal your presence to other civilizations as cheaply and unambiguously as possible, how might you do it?

    Imagine looking at some data of a distant planet – which has become a somewhat normal enterprise for astronomers – and noticing something weird. The signature of the planet has a strange shape – in fact, none of your models are able to explain it. It looks like someone has imprinted a series of spikes into the data, following the prime number series. Nothing in nature can do this – you have just detected another civilization’s beacon. Alternative use of the cloaking system’s laser could be to make a planet’s signal look highly artificial, instead of hidden. Now they don’t care about building the perfect cloak; they want to be found!

    Could such signals be lurking in our existing measurements? Perhaps so. No one has ever looked, and we hope our work sparks efforts on that front. It may be a long shot, since to even get to this point we need to try to imagine how aliens might think – but given the scientific prize on offer it’s also worth it. If we identify a strange transit, it may well contain information encoded via laser light pulses. Huge volumes of information could be hidden within the transit signatures of other planets.

    For us, this was an exercise in intellectual curiosity. We simply calculated how much energy it would take to either cloak or broadcast a planet’s existence. Whether we should seriously consider wrapping Earth in a protective cloak of invisibility – or conversely, getting serious about trumpeting our existence – via laser manipulations is something we should all decide together.

    Alien Abduction or Sleep Paralysis?

    (c) Kathleen Marden 2012

     
        Kathleen Marden

    I have personally been embroiled in the UFO abduction debate for 46 years and professionally involved for the past 21 years. As the niece of Betty and Barney Hill, the first abductees to gain public recognition in the United States, I find this unsolved mystery fascinating. On February 22, 1966, I observed an unconventional flying object hovering approximately less than 1000 feet above me. There were five other witnesses. I have observed additional anomalies that have been linked (by some researchers), to alien abduction phenomena. I have, however, never experienced sleep paralysis. I wish that I had so that I could describe it from a personal perspective. Without firsthand knowledge of this psycho-physiological process, I must rely upon information from those who study it professionally and the testimony of those who have experienced it.

    Several skeptical scientists have suggested that sleep paralysis is the best explanation for nocturnal bedroom abductions. Nearly all abductees/ experiencers (depending upon one’s emotional response to the event), disagree. Those who were initially taken from an external environment (car, campsite, forest, field), after having a close encounter with an unconventional flying object and/or observing non-human entities, and experiencing approximately two hours “lost” time, are not convinced that  that their subsequent bedroom abductions are sleep related anomalies.

    Many abductees/experiencers have no memory of being taken from an external environment. They have only vivid memories of being taken from their beds during the night by humanoid figures and later returned with new, unexplainable marks on their bodies. Others wonder if they might have been abducted because they have observed strange lights in their bedrooms at night or observed the floating face of an alien figure above their beds.

         Skeptics and scientific ufologists remind us that in the absence of substantial evidence, we cannot accept anecdotal abduction accounts as real. Our perception of the events that occur during the night, while we are sleeping or partially awake, could possibly be distorted by our sleeping minds. REM sleep, visual imagery, and sleep hallucinations can be confusing.

    One thing is clear. All of us experience paralysis as a function of REM (rapid eye movement) sleep. More dreaming occurs during REM sleep than in another stage of sleep. The paralysis prevents us from acting out our dreams and harming ourselves or others. It is most frequently reported to occur when we are falling asleep. But it can also occur upon waking. Some people have a sleep disorder that that interferes with normal REM sleep, causing them to act out their dreams. This condition requires medical treatment because REM sleep disorder sufferers have injured themselves or family members while in acting out in REM sleep.

    Sleep paralysis is related to REM but is a different entity. It can occur just before falling asleep or waking up. You will have conscious awareness of your surroundings but not be able to move anything except your eyes. You might observe shadowy figures in your bedroom and your heart might pound, as a sense of fear jars you into wakefulness. About 30-40% of those queried by sleep study scientists report that they have experienced sleep paralysis. It is simply a sign that their bodies are not moving smoothly through the stages of sleep.

    People with narcolepsy, a condition characterized by excessive daytime sleepiness and REM activity within ten minutes of falling asleep, are more likely to experience sleep paralysis accompanied by hypnagogic or hypnopompic hallucinations than the general population. Sleep paralysis alone is characteristically different than the colorful imagery described by people who have experienced H/H hallucinations.

    There is conflicting information about H/H hallucinations and I have not been able to find conclusive answers with regard to its prevalence among human populations. HH ahllucinations can last up to several minutes and affect an estimated 5% to over 12% of the normal population. However, David J. Hufford wrote in The Terror That Comes in the Night, that 50% or more of Yasuo Hishikawa’s narcoleptic subjects reported that they had experienced H/H hallucinations.

    Hypnagogic (between waking and sleeping) and hypnopompic (between sleeping and waking)  hallucinations occur when factors such as stress, extreme fatigue, medications, and mental illness cause the part of the brain that distinguishes between conscious perceptions and internally generated perceptions to misfire. This results in internally generated visions, sounds, feelings, smells or tastes. H/H hallucination experiencers often see colored geometric shapes or parts of objects. Others might observe the full image of a person, monster or animal. Sometimes lines or the outlines of figures are observed. Sensations of floating or flying are common, along with hallucinated buzzing sounds. H/H hallucinations can be frightening. The hallucinations can last from seconds to minutes and are usually accompanied by a brief period of sleep paralysis. They are experienced as being as real as real.

    I once personally experienced a hypnopompic hallucination, without sleep paralysis. My husband and I were sleeping soundly when the telephone jarred me into partial wakefulness in the middle of the night. I didn’t answer the phone because I “saw” my husband walk toward it, as if he were going to answer it. Even though the room was dark I perceived that he was clothed in a brightly colored red and black plaid flannel shirt. The almost fluorescent colors were brighter than what can be observed in natural sunlight. I was perplexed because the phone continued to ring even though I “saw” my husband lift the receiver from the cradle. Almost immediately I was startled by the awareness of his presence in the bed next to me. My hallucination vanished and I answered the phone. It is the only hypnopompic hallucination that I have ever had, but as a lifelong student of human perception, I found it interesting and informative.

     Some sleep scientists contend that an experiencer’s perception of alien abduction while sleeping or awake in bed is most likely attributable to sleep paralysis, perhaps with hypnopompic hallucinations. They suspect that extraterrestrial entities are generated in hypnagogic and hypnopompic sleep states. Sleep hallucinations might be related to dreams because they are more elaborate and enduring than sleep paralysis alone. Hypothetically, we might be sleeping and perhaps dreaming about alien entities. When we start to move up out of REM sleep we might experience a hypnopompic hallucination and “see” nonhuman entities in our bedroom that we perceive as real. After a few seconds or minutes, we become fully awake but remember the onset of an abduction/contact as if it were real.

     If we experience a combination of sleep paralysis and H/H hallucinations, we will suffer intense fear and wake up paralyzed, unable to move anything except our eyes. We might observe shadowy figures standing beside our beds or hovering overhead. If we attempt to cry out we find that we can’t utter more than a nondescript sound. We’re locked inside paralyzed bodies, unable to speak or move, except for our eyes. Our hearts pound and we strain to breathe as if there is a weight upon our chests. We are acutely aware of surroundings. Shadows transform into frightening shadowy images and sounds intensify. We struggle to break free from our dreadful predicament, and within seconds we are fully awake. This occurs to some of us when we emerge from REM sleep and our natural paralysis continues for a few seconds. I have never met an abductee/experiencer who believes that their ET contact experience was sleep related.

    I have, however, spoken with individuals who have experienced HH hallucinations throughout their lifetime. Most report the observation of geometric shapes or disconnected body parts. One observed the upper torso and face of a monster. Two have observed alien heads that were not connected to bodies.  These details are not consistent with the reports that I have received from abductees/experiencers.

    Many abductees/ experiencers have described distinctly different demarcations between sleep paralysis, H/H hallucinations and real abduction experiences. They insist that they were fully awake at the onset of an alien abduction or visitation. They might even have received a telepathic message earlier in the day that they would be visited. They did not wake up paralyzed. It was only after they cried out or attempted to fight or flee that they became paralyzed. Some might even remember being transported through solid objects, such as a wall, roof or window, to a craft. Most have observed non-human entities and might even retain a complex memory of being examined on the craft and/or being taught a lesson. They are later returned to their beds. Prior to their experience some witnesses report that they were nervously glancing at their alarm clocks, unable to sleep due to their anxiety about an impending abduction. Having noted the time on their alarm clocks prior to and after their experience, they can think of no prosaic explanation for the lost time. Sometimes bed partners and family members sleeping in the house recall identical experiences on the same night.

    Sleep paralysis and HH hallucinations are not an acceptable explanation for “Jennie Henderson’s experiences. At age 16, she and a companion were in route to a high school basketball game when they were stopped and immobilized by an unconventional craft and “lost” two hour’s time. At first the craft resembled a helicopter in rapid pursuit of their vehicle. The silent teardrop shaped object hovered directly overhead and the engine of the Volkswagen died. As if only a moment had passed the car restarted and the teens were once again on their way to their destination. Jennie anticipated meeting her younger brother there and transporting him home at the end of the school event. Upon their arrival, they discovered that the event had ended nearly two hours earlier. There was no prosaic explanation for their “lost” time, and the family decided not to make a formal report of the event.

    Years later, Jennie sought help after she experienced a series of frightening nocturnal bedroom visitations. Occasionally, she would awaken during the night and observe nonhuman entities in her bedroom.  Shortly thereafter, a wave of paralysis crept up her body. Several times, she was fully awake when an unseen force suddenly and unexpectedly ripped her body from her bed. Her next conscious memory was of finding herself in a holding area aboard a strange craft accompanied by short non-human entities with grayish skin and large eyes. As time passed, she was able to recall many of the details of her visits with extraterrestrial entities, without hypnosis. Her husband and children’s memories of the events added support to Jennie’s suspicion that she had not experienced a sleep anomaly or vivid dream. On two occasions, her neighbors observed a silent disk-shaped craft hovering over her rural home.

    Many abductees believe that their experiences are real because they and others in their homes retain the same experiential memories. When there is unusual physical evidence attached to these memories, it is difficult to find an adequate prosaic explanation such as sleep paralysis and H/H hallucinations. Abductees are often awakened by a rushing sound and activity in their bedrooms. At the onset of their experience they are not paralyzed, and often cry out, attempt to escape, or even throw objects at the intruders. Small entities, often with glistening eyes, move about their bedrooms. The abductees’ partners sometimes attempt to fight back, but are quickly immobilized and returned to their beds in a seemingly deep sleep.

    Some abductees/experiencers are returned to their beds, but others end up locked outside of their homes. Some awaken on their roofs, in their vehicles, or even in someone else’s home. Sometimes they find mud and vegetative matter in their beds. Others find they are no longer dressed in their own clothing, but in a stranger’s nightshirt. Sometimes experiencers find landing trace evidence on their property.

    Most academic psychologists ignore these unique characteristics associated with nocturnal bedroom abductions. Instead they attempt to squeeze reports made by abductees/experiencers into sleep paralysis and HH hallucination categories, despite the evidence to the contrary. There are several reasons for this. One is that HH hallucinations and sleep paralysis are often experienced as real as real and can contain complex imagery and physiological responses. Another is that when Occam’s razor, the principle that among competing hypotheses, the simplest explanation within accepted scientific paradigms is the most plausible, HHHs and SP are the scientifically acceptable explanations. Political agendas have relegated UFO and alien abduction to the fringe science category. Officially, ufology is a pseudoscience lacking the respectability required for serious scientific study. A few courageous scientists have stepped outside politically acceptable constraints and have advanced our scientific knowledge of UFO related phenomena. However, some have experienced the professional consequences of thinking outside the box. Young scientists who wish to advance their professional careers are fearful of investigating these taboo subjects. To do so might lead to professional suicide.

    1. Eyewitness report of a forestry worker who was attacked by aliens in Scotland
    The mystery of what happened to a forestry worker called Robert Taylor on a chilly November morning more than 30 years ago is one that has baffled all who have examined the case, including the police, who keep the file open and consider it “unexplained”.


    He arrived for work as normal in his company-owned pick-up truck with his Irish red setter Larah and started to walk down the path into the woods.

    But as he rounded the path into a clearing he was absolutely astonished to see what he later described as a “large dome-shaped object” of about 20-30ft circumference hovering 15ft above the surface of the grass.

    He said that parts of it seemed to disappear around the edges, it would seem to dematerialize so he could see the trees behind it, then solidify again.

    As he watched it, what resembled two WWII sea mines dropped from beneath the object and rolled towards him and just before they reached him a burning smell, like burning brake lines, flooded the area and he heard a loud swishing noise.

    The “mines” rolled across the grass and rods came out of them, which attached themselves to his hips and began to pull him towards the object.

    At this point he lost consciousness, he didn’t know for how long but thought it could only have been for one or two minutes.

    When he came to the objects were gone and there were marks and holes on the ground, more than 20 circular or triangular indentations in the grass. Robert also had a nasty graze on his forehead and another one on his chin, and an incredible thirst.

    Huge apocalyptic FIREBALL spotted streaking across sky

    VIEWERS were left baffled by the frightening sight of a flaming ball falling from the sky.

    By Peter Truman

    Footage from two different locations captured what many believe is the same incident of what looks like a huge fireball.

    The first video, taken in Louisiana yesterday, shows something seemingly falling from the sky with a huge trail of smoke behind.

    A second video was then uploaded the same night from neighbouring state Texas.

    TWITTER

    UFO: There was plenty of speculation over what the bizarre apocalyptic looking object was

    Internet terrified by BIZARRE apocalyptic scene falling from sky

    It looked like a bomb coming down.

    Eyewitness

    Again it shows a huge object falling to the ground surrounded by a bright reddish colour and a massive trail behind it.

    One Twitter user who saw the event described it as a “burning fire falling out of (the) sky.”

    Another added: "It looked like a bomb coming 

    UFO hunters were quick to speculate what the weird phenomenon was, with some suggesting it was a strange weather feature while others thought it could be a downed satellite.

    But not everyone was so serious, with one Reddit user suggesting: “Maybe Superman coming to Earth from Krypton?”

    Most, however, thought it was a central from a plane caught in the sunset.

    Aliens may have existed on Earth. Here's why they left

    istock-175217194.jpg
    Picture: GETTY IMAGES/ISTOCKPHOTO

    Do aliens exist? Are humans the only sentient species in the universe? Is there extra-terrestrial life? Are we alone?

    It's one of humanity's most all-consuming questions, fascinating scientists, governments and pop culture alike. 

    But now, one US space scientist is claiming that advanced life forms may be a reality - but that they disappeared long ago.

    Professor Jason Wright, an astronomy and astrophysics professor at Pennsylvania State University, published a paper in arXiv entitled 'Prior Indigenous Technological Species'.

    He claims that ancient 'technological species' may have lived on Earth billions of years before the human race.

    Well, either Earth, or a "pre-greenhouse Venus," or "a wet Mars". He's not 100 per cent sure.

    However, Wright claims:

    Given that it is known to host complex life, the most obvious origin for a prior species of any sort is Earth.

    He pulls no punches when he explains that:

    Present-day Venus would seem to be a terrible candidate for a technological species, with a surface temperature over 700K, although when it comes to alien life we should keep an open mind about even this.

    Wright believes that the ancient species has disappeared, but that in the past we could have found found traces of them underground, called "technosignatures". 

    However, he claims that most of the physical evidence would now be lost.

    On Venus, for example, the global greenhouse arrival may have resulted in a resurfacing of the planet, while on Earth the movement of tectonic plates and subsequent erosion could have erased any lingering traces.

    Nevertheless, he writes, it might still be possible to recognise these technosignatures even if the physical evidence is all but destroyed.

    He explains:

    Structures buried beneath surfaces might survive and be discoverable as long as they do not suffer a collision so severe that their artificial nature is obliterated.

    Merely destroying them would render them nonfunctional, but they might still be recognisably technological.

    We might conjecture that settlements or bases on these objects would have been built beneath the surface for a variety of reasons, and so still be discoverable today.

    Wright proposes that we might find traces on more undisturbed surfaces such as the Moon and Mars.

    Of course, the idea that humans are not the only sentient species is nothing new. 

    Indeed, he writes, "the idea of indigenous Martian civilisations pervades science fiction to the point of cliche".

    However, the proposal that the alien species is already extinct is comparatively unexplored in the scientific field. 

    But why does Wright think they disappeared?

    Wright says that "the most obvious answer" is a cataclysm, "whether a natural event such as an extinction-level asteroid impact, or self-inflicted, such as a global climate catastrophe".

    However, in the case of a species which had settled in the Solar System, Wright explains:

    ...Such an event would only permanently extinguish the species if there were many cataclysms across the Solar System closely spaced in time (a swarm of comets, or interplanetary warfare perhaps), or if the settlements were not completely self-sufficient.

    Alternatively, an unexpected nearby gamma ray burst or supernova might produce a Solar-System-wide cataclysm.

    Even without a cataclysm, the species may have simply died out, or become permanently non-technological at some point, or [...] abandoned the Solar System permanently for some reason.

    HUMAN OR NOT? MYSTERIOUS CREATURE SPARKS INTERNET FRENZY IN INDONESIA

    An unusual figure appears in Indonesian forest which may be proof of a lost, legendary tribe. 
     
    There were dramatic scenes in Jakarta recently when a high profile bike tour took a disastrous turn when a rider fell from his bike in shock when a figure emerged from the forest which some have speculated was not a human being. 
     
    The incredible moment when the Banda Aceh-based motor trail group met the mysterious figure in Indonesia’s most western province was caught on camera. The video clearly shows the lead rider falling from his bike in fright as a human-like figure, who is considerably smaller than the average person, appears suddenly on the track ahead bearing a wooden stick as though it was a weapon.
     
     The individual in the track stopped and observed the bikers for a brief moment before tearing off into the forest. Individual bikers attempted to track down the figure after he ran away, but despite the fact that they were on motorbikes and the figure was traveling on foot they were unable to catch up with him. The figure managed to elude them by darting into shrubbery vegetation and was last sighting disappearing into the deepest thicket of the forest. 
     
     
    The video was posted online where it has attracted a huge amount of attention and speculation. While some people have suggested that the figure was some kind of supernatural being, others have suggested that he could have been a member of the legendary Mante tribe. The Mante tribe are believed to be an ethnic group who have inhabited this region of Indonesia for a long time. There has been no anthropological investigation attempting to contact the tribe and they have never sought out contact with other people living in the area. Owing to the fact that nothing is known about these people, it is commonly believed that they are nothing more than an urban legend. However, the emergence of this video may call this into question.

    RIDLEY SCOTT: 'ALIENS EXIST AND THEY'RE A LOT SMARTER THAN US. DON'T CHALLENGE THEM!'

    Ridley Scott is one of the most famous creators of Aliens and he believes that they are really out there and says that one day when they are ready they are going to come. The director spoke up and said that it is ridiculous to think that humans are alone in the universe and he firmly believes that one-day superior beings are going to pay a visit to Earth. The director was talking as he prepares for the release of Alien: Covenant.
     
     "SUPERIOR BEINGS WILL VISIT EARTH, EXPERT AT NASA AGREES" 
     
    He made the following comments on extraterrestrial life: 
    • I believe in superior beings. I think it is certainly likely. An expert I was talking to at NASA said to me, ‘Have you ever looked in the sky at night? You mean to tell me we are it?’ That’s ridiculous.
    •  The experts have now put a number on it having assessed what is out there. They say that there are between 100 and 200 entities that could be having a similar evolution to us right now. So when you see a big thing in the sky, run for it.” 
    Ridley's “Xenomorph” and “chestburster” alien creatures have terrified his fans for nearly 40 years. 
     
    Alien: Covenant is the second in the list of prequel movies and it has a setting during the year of 2104 on a spacecraft that is carrying 2,000 colonists who have been cryogenically frozen while traveling to a distant planet when they come across what they believe is uncharted paradise. However, as you might expect from Ridley Scott, the voyage soon becomes a nightmare full of gore that will have those watching think nothing of the alien bursting out of the chest of the man in the original movie. 
     
    "WE SHOULD NOT MESS WITH REAL-LIFE ALIENS" 
     
    He explained: 
    • They are a lot smarter than we are. If you are stupid enough to challenge them, you will be taken out in three seconds.”
     Finally, he joked: 
    •  “Nothing scares me.I have a 9mm (pistol).
    Scott went on to say that he could not believe all the terror that he had managed to create when he saw the reactions of those who had watched the original movies. He said that people were hiding half under their seats by the time the kitchen scene where the alien pushed its way out of the chest of John Hurt. Scott, on the other hand, claims to be un-shockable, he bragged that nothing scared him, he did admit to being nervous though when walking onto the set of a film and there are 600 plus people all looking at you.
     
     Whether the alien life form that Scott believes is going to be making its way to Earth at some point in time will be anything like the aliens Scott created remains to be seen, but it’s hoped they are friendlier.
     
     “ALIEN: COVENANT” WILL OPEN NATIONWIDE IN CINEMAS ON MAY 19.

    THE CREEPIEST PARANORMAL VIDEOS FROM WORLD WAR II

     
    Now a user on YouTube with the name of Dark5s has put together a very enlightening collection of paranormal stories which back to WWII and all of which involve something totally strange, weird, and unusual or things that cannot be explained. 
     
    One of the stories in the video may explain an even from the war that has perplexed people for a long time. This, of course, was Rudolph Hess and his bizarre flight to Scotland with the hope of negotiating peace between the Nazis and Britain. At the time the actions of Hess were thought to be baffling to both sides involved and just what could have motivated him to make such a trip has remained something of a mystery.
     
     In the years that followed the war, it came to light that perhaps Hess may have been duped by the British Intelligence into making the strange journey. It has been suggested that perhaps the British Intelligence tapped into the psychic realm. 
     
    Rumors have been very persistent over the years that there had been a joint effort between magician Aleister Crowley and intelligence agent, who went on to write books about secret agents, Ian Fleming. It was said that Crowley was able to manipulate the mind of Hess using psychic messages and then Fleming did his part by making it look like the insights were real through propaganda pieces that were carefully used.
     
     If this is true the tandem attack by the two proved to be successful, at least when it came to inspiring Hess to leave his post and take on a peace mission that was futile and one which caused chaos for the Nazis.
     
     Along with this story, many other fascinating events have been included in the video. These include covens of witches who tried to protect England with a magic ritual and the quest of Hitler to find the Holy Grail.

    US PRESIDENT MAY SOON RELEASE A LARGE CACHE OF CLASSIFIED JFK FILES

    Is the truth about the JFK assassination about to be revealed?
     
     The assassination of John F. Kennedy still fascinates many people after fifty years. While the FBI and the American government claim that the official story is simply true, much of the information about the murder remains classified. Why would the information still be kept a secret after so many decades if there was nothing more to the story? Many people who were young at the time of the assassination are now dead. Who is the information being kept secret from? 
     
    Perhaps, the information will not be kept secret for much longer. It may be the case that the Trump administration is going to release all of what is known about the details of the assassination. In 1992, it was decided that the information would remain secret for another 25 years. It is now up to the president whether or not the information will remain secret. 
     
    There are 3500 files that could either be released or be kept secret. If the files do not include a simple admission that the official story is wrong, perhaps the files could contain clues that point to the real nature and purpose of the assassination. If the assassination was a conspiracy involving organizations that still possess a lot of power today, it seems unlikely that Trump could release the files. However, one could imagine the files being released even if they contain strong evidence that Oswald was not the assassin. 
     
    October of 2017 is the earliest date at which the files might be released. The final decision is up to the president, but the CIA and FBI will soon make a recommendation about whether or not to release the files. One could certainly doubt that the files contain everything that the government knows about the assassination. It could very well be the case that, even if the files are released to the public, the real story will remain secret.

    ENORM RUIMTESCHIP ONTDEKT OP NASA FOTO ( VIDEO )

    Wij mensen zien ze regelmatig vliegen door onze luchten, maar net buiten onze dampkring gebeuren ook heel interessante dingen. 

    Het toeval wil dat er daarvan deze week een aantal leuke voorbeelden opduiken, zoals een NASA foto, gemaakt door de Apollo 10 missie. 



    Er zijn mensen die bijna hun hele dag besteden aan het bestuderen en bekijken van door NASA gemaakte foto’s en komen dan soms heel bijzondere dingen tegen. 

    Zoals een foto gemaakt door NASA astronauten in 1969. 


    Apollo 10 was de vierde bemande vlucht uit het Apolloprogramma. De bemanning bestond uit commandant Thomas Stafford, CSM-piloot John Young en maanlanderpiloot Eugene Cernan. 

    Deze vlucht vond plaats in 1969 en diende ter voorbereiding op een maanlanding met Apollo 11 om het aan- en afkoppelen van diverse modules te oefenen. 

    Ook maakten ze prachtige foto’s van de aarde en op één daarvan is door de bekende Streetcap1 iets bijzonders ontdekt. 

    Iets, wat daar absoluut niet op thuis hoort en wat door de NASA censuur waarschijnlijk per ongeluk niet is weggehaald. 

    Het ziet er als volgt uit:


    xxx


    xxx

    Vanuit het ruimtestation ISS (International Space Station), niet te verwarren met ISIS (Israeli Secret Intelligence Service), heb je ook een prachtig uitzicht op onze aarde en wat daar allemaal net buiten de dampkring gebeurt. Als het allemaal echt is natuurlijk.

    De Franse ESA astronaut Thomas Pesquet die op dit moment in het ISS verblijft, wilde een filmopname maken van een elektrische storm boven het westen van Amerika. 

    Echter, hij filmde nog meer, want op de video die Pesquet maakte, waren duidelijk een aantal objecten te zien die niet alleen met grote snelheid boven de aarde vlogen, maar ook nog eens allerlei vreemde bochten maakten. 

    Volgens wetenschappers van ESA (European Space Agency) waren het wel degelijk solide objecten en waarschijnlijk satellieten, maar ze konden even niet bedenken over welke satellieten het dan wel zou gaan. 

    Bekijk de volgende beelden en oordeel zelf of satellieten in staat zijn om een dergelijke veranderende koers te vliegen. 


     

    De opname van Pesquet werd op 17 april gemaakt en tien dagen later, op 27 april 2017, maakte NASA zelf een opname van een ronde UFO nabij het ISS die van kleur veranderde.


    xxx

    Deze ontdekking werd wederom gedaan door Streetcap1 en het lukte hem beelden vast te leggen, ondanks dat op het moment dat NASA ook het object opmerkte zij zoals gewoonlijk de verbinding verbraken en een blauw scherm toonden.

    I was going through the Colima volcano archives and found this amazing UFO as it makes a sudden hard right turn, and heads for the volcano base. I believe that the UFO was heading to and underground base that is located about 4-5 miles below the Colima volcano. This volcano is defiantly on the top ten list for being one of the most popular locations for UFOs. There are actually two UFOs, one close and one far in the video at the bottom of this post.

    Kurt Russell Recalls UFO Sighting in BBC Interview

    Given the prevalence of UFO sightings, it’s no surprise that public figures such as celebrities or politicians sometimes witness unexplained aerial phenomenon. A new celebrity UFO disclosure came this week from Hollywood legend Kurt Russell, who shared an eerie personal UFO sighting while on the BBC’s The One Show. Russell appeared on the show alongside Chris Pratt to promote the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 when The One Show‘s hosts asked the pair if they believe alien beings have visited our planet. Pratt claimed that no, he does not, after which Russell opened up and recounted a strange encounter he and his son had with a set of unidentified lights in the sky.

    Russell says he saw the lights while aboard his private plane.

    Russell claims he was flying his son Oliver to visit Oliver’s girlfriend when the two of them spotted a strange set of lights in the sky:

    I was flying him to go see his girlfriend. And we were on approach and I saw six lights over the airport in an absolute uniform V-shape. Oliver said ‘Pa, what are those lights?’ And then I kind of came out of my reverie and I said ‘I don’t know what they are.’

    Russell then says he called in the sighting to the airport, asking if any aircraft were in the skies. The airport then reportedly radioed back that their radar systems were not showing any aircraft in that area at the time and logged the lights as unidentified.

    Similar V-shaped formations have been reported in many famous sightings, including the mass sighting in Phoenix in 1997.

    A few years later, Russell says his wife Goldie Hawn was watching a television documentary on the infamous Phoenix Lights sightings. As Russell watched footage of the lights, he experienced a strange feeling of deja vu:

    As I’m watching this, I’m feeling like Richard Dreyfuss in Close Encounters of the Third Kind. I thought ‘Why do I know this?’ It’s not clear to me.

    Russell then remembered his UFO sighting and checked his log books on the day of the flight, and sure enough, he had somehow forgotten to record the sighting in his flight log. To this day, Russell can’t explain the sighting.

    Russell previously battled parasitic aliens who crashed on Earth in John Carpenters horror classic The Thing.

    As Chris Pratt put it in the interview, “I think that’s an awesome story man”

    Woman Claims Abduction Turned Her Into an Alien Hybrid

    These three beings stood over me and we had a long communication where they told me I would learn to meditate in order to stay in touch with them, and help communication between them and us [humans].

    Thus begins a story that ends with a woman being “upgraded” to an alien hybrid. How does that happen?

    The latest issue of the magazine New Idea contains an interview with author and purported alien abductee Judy Carroll of Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. Now 64, Carroll claims she was first contacted by aliens she believes are Greys when she was a child. The positive ID came in 1983 when the telepathic communications became actual physical contact as Carroll says the extraterrestrials took her on their spaceship for the first time. From her description – “pure white, with beautiful archways and no sharp corners” – it sounds like these Greys travel in a big flying saucer. However …

    I don’t always remember as I’m taken during sleep, but I do have many conscious memories too.

    Carroll describes the three beings that stood over her as thin-bodied, bald and with teardrop-shaped eyes and no moving jaws. Although he doesn’t corroborate that description in the interview, Carroll says her husband claims he’s seen an alien hovering over her while she’s meditating. Her husband sounds like an understanding guy, especially since Carroll also reveals that she has an alien teacher and healer on the ship named Maris, who has a “soul-to-soul” relationship with her. That relationship includes an interesting way of healing, as she describes how Maris cured a throat problem.

    I remember him massaging my neck and putting his long fingers in my mouth and down my throat, where I said I was tight.

    That throat problem could be because she claims she’s a hybrid and her human neck is dealing with her jawless alien side. Carroll believes she was chosen by the aliens while still in the womb and her DNA has been “upgraded” on her regular visits to the ship, where she says she’s witnessed the aliens “working on humans” who had also been taken there.

    These monthly visits, meditative communications and instructions from Maris are the basis for Judy Carroll’s books and website where she helps other abductees and hybrids deal with their condition, memories and experiences. The site also acts as a clearinghouse for information about Greys (or Zetas as she also calls them) and provides a way for Carroll to distribute communications from them.

    Is Judy Carroll really a Human by Day, Zeta by Night as the title of her docudrama suggests? She doesn’t provide the hard facts — like a DNA test or doctor’s exam, for example — that would sway skeptics. However, she does offer a good collection of interesting information and reading and her assistance to those who have a hard time convincing others they’ve been abducted is undoubtedly greatly appreciated.

    It obviously helps to have an understanding spouse.

    1967: A Wave of UFO Encounters

    On March 1, 2016, I wrote an article here at Mysterious Universe titled “UFOs: ‘The Star-Spangled Cross.'” It began as follows:

    If there is one thing which can be said about the UFO phenomenon – and said with a fair degree of certainty – it’s that today we don’t get the classic ‘flaps’ and ‘waves’ that dominated the field of Ufology decades ago. I’m talking about the likes of Washington, D.C. 1952, the surge of UFO activity in 1973, and the Belgian ‘Flying Triangle’ encounters of 1989-1990. There was also a notable flood of reports in the United Kingdom in 1967 – which is the subject of this particular article.

    Declassified files from the British Ministry of Defense reveal that from 1959 to 1966 the MoD received close to 450 reports of UFO activity in U.K. airspace – the vast majority of reports coming from the public, and a much smaller number originating with the police and the military. And 1966 led the pack with 95 reports. However, things changed dramatically in 1967 when the MoD was overrun by UFO reports. The actual figure was 362, which averages out to almost one per day. Although, it should be noted that many of those reports came from October 1967, the month when the nation briefly went UFO crazy.

    There is a reason why I bring this up now, more than a year later. October of this year marks the 50th anniversary of what turned out to be a massive wave of UFO activity in the U.K. My earlier article described several of the more famous cases that hit the headlines and intrigued the U.K.’s Ministry of Defense, in late 1967. Keeping in mind the 50th anniversary angle, I figure why not share with you what amounts to quite a bit of additional data, in case anyone out there reading this may be inspired to look further into this long-gone wave of encounters – and with plenty of time before the mystery hits its 50th, too.

    On October 25, 1967, the Chief Constable of East Sussex, England – George Terry – did something highly proactive. He organized a conference in the town of Lewes, East Sussex, where the local police force was briefed on the then-current UFO activity that was being reported across the U.K. Terry’s actions were prompted by the fact that many of the reports which caught his attention came from fellow officers. Terry informed his team that sharing any and all findings with the media was fine, in order to keep things in their “right perspective.”

    One night later, a large, brightly-lit object was seen above the town of Hastings, England – also in East Sussex. On this particular occasion, the police shared their data with personnel from the Royal Greenwich Observatory. They were said to be “really interested” in this specific report.

    It is now quite obvious that there was something visible below the cloud cover. This is an advance. We know now that there is something up there and that something is not Venus.

    And the reports continued to flood in: In the county of Oxfordshire, and on the very next night, a pair of “Bobbies” saw two, large, egg-shaped objects flying over a local road. They (the UFOs, not the cops!) vanished at a high rate of speed when they reached a height of approximately 600 feet. Paul Quick – 21 at the time – saw an oval-shaped UFO flying over woods near the West Sussex village of Storrington. Quick watched amazed as the craft headed for the ground on the Sussex Downs. Despite a search of the area by police, no sign of the UFO was found.

    Then, on October 29, the U.K.’s Daily Telegraph newspaper ran an article titled “Police see UFO over Sussex.” The article told how a number of officers, including Police Constable Michael Sands, had seen “a silver pinpoint of light” moving at high speed over Lancing Police Station, near the edge of the Adur Valley. And the cases continued to pour in – to the extent that there was even a brief period when the U.K.’s Ministry of Defense mused upon the idea of liaising with the Russians on the UFO issue!

    Such waves and flaps seldom occur today, which is why I figure that with the 50th anniversary not far away, now might be the time to take a look back at a strange and brief period when the skies of the U.K. were filled with UFOs. Or, when mass-hysteria was running wildly out of control…

    California Cylindrical UFO Sighting Could Be Mystery Plane

    Earlier this month, photos of an unknown and strange-looking aircraft surfaced on an aviation forum. The images showed an unidentified and futuristic plane being serviced at a former Air Force base which is now (officially, anyway) a commercial logistics airport – a commercial logistics airport which just so happens to host DARPA tests and military flights and whose street address is on “Phantom Way.” The missile-shaped, windowless craft was speculated to be a prototype or even a movie prop by forum users, but with no official explanation given, speculation spread that the aircraft might be some sort of new top-secret technology hiding in plain sight.

    Even aviation forums couldn't positively identify the aircraft.

    Even aviation forums couldn’t positively identify the aircraft.

    To possibly complicate or corroborate the mystery aircraft sighting, a recent UFO sighting in the town of Lincoln, California some 400 miles (640 km) to the north sounds an awful lot like the mysterious aircraft and might show some credence that the mystery plane was, in fact, a prototype aircraft currently being tested above California. MUFON’s Roger Marsh reported the case, which reportedly took place on 2:45 p.m. on March 16, 2017. The eyewitness reported being familiar with many types of aircraft based on time spent in or around the U.S. Air Force. According to MUFON field investigator Shelley Goodman, the eyewitness claims the aircraft was unlike anything he’s seen:

    He described it as something he’s never seen before.  He was in the Air Force and knows all about aircraft and how fast they move.  This flew through the sky three times faster than any aircraft.  In 5-6 seconds, it covered about 60 percent of the horizon flying from west to the northwest.  It was underneath the cloud cover, so they could see it clearly. He described it like one of those big propane tanks some people have in their backyard flying through the air. There were no emissions and no noise.

    Sounds an awful lot like the mystery craft seen a few weeks ago, if you ask me. Were that craft to be seen at an angle while banking, it would certainly appear much as the eyewitness described. Of course, without any photographs, we’ll never know and this is all ultimately conjecture.

    Cylindrical UFOs are commonly reported, likely due to the fact that aircraft wings can often be invisible to observers or cameras on the ground due to perspective.

    The testing theory does fit with certain trends lately, though, as more and more venture capitalists are venturing into bold new aerospace projects; could secret testing of new corporate technologies be the cause of many recent reports of strange aircraft, particularly in California? It’s possible. Of course, the rise in UFO and mystery plane sightings also happens to coincide with the advent of commercial drone aircraft, so there are likely other plausible explanations for most of these sightings.

    Ridley Scott Says Aliens Exist and Don’t Mess With Them

    Google “alien” and the entry at the top of the list is not Greys or Reptilians or people from a country that’s not yours – it’s a movie. Not just any movie … the mother of all sci-fi-horror movies – Alien, starring Sigourney Weaver and directed by the father of the genre – Ridley Scott. Sir Ridley went on to direct the equally-classic Blade Runner as well as Prometheus and The Martian … and some non-sci-fi monsters like Thelma & LouiseGladiator and Hannibal. And don’t forget the dystopian “1984” commercial for Apple. Now he’s back to what he does best – aliens! Scott is making the rounds promoting his latest directorial accomplishment and return to where it all began – Alien: Covenant.

    Sir Ridley scott

    But you Ridley Scott fans already knew all of this. What you may not have known – but possibly suspected – is that Sir Ridley believes in aliens.

    I believe in superior beings. I think it is certainly likely. An expert I was talking to at NASA said to me ‘have you ever looked in the sky at night? You mean to tell me we are it?’ That’s ridiculous.

    What exactly does Scott mean by ‘superior beings’?

    The experts have now put a number on it having assessed what is out there. They say that there are between 100 and 200 entities that could be having a similar evolution to us right now. So when you see a big thing in the sky, run for it.

    Run for it? If they have a ‘similar evolution’ to our own, why should we be afraid, Sir Ridley?

    They are a lot smarter than we are. If you are stupid enough to challenge them you will be taken out in three seconds.


    NOW he tells us!

    Should we be watching everyone else’s stomach … or our own? Scott doesn’t say, nor does he offer any comparisons between real aliens and the fictional (hopefully) Xenomorphs in Alien: Covenant, the second prequel to Alien that he’s directed. It continues where Prometheus, the first prequel, leaves off.

    OK, so we already knew that Ridley Scott makes great Alien movies. Now we know that it’s probably because he believes in aliens and thinks they‘re out to get us. That explains Sir Ridley, but why do WE like them so much?

    But the film was very successful because people are perverse.

    Yep.

    Watch – Alleged Colour-Changing Spaceship Over Southern California

    california.ufo

    An incredible colour changing UFO was caught on video. The strange diamond shape object apparently flew in the night sky above San Fernando Valley in California, U.S.A.

    The clip was reportedly shot two weeks ago and posted on popular video-sharing site YouTube. It shows the strange object moving jerkily in the sky while flashing pink, blue, and green colours.

    Some alien enthusiasts believe that the spacecraft in the latest video has been seen previously not once, but many times in different locations across the world.

    They say that the UFO is a rotating six-sided diamond-shaped spacecraft. The unknown object reportedly stays in place for an hour before it leaves fast.

    Many UFO researchers wonder what kind of species uses the extraordinary craft and what kind of intel they are collecting.

    Others are not convinced of the video saying how come someone considered it a UFO when it is easy to fabricate such video. They point out that the video shows nothing but some kind of light in the dark background. They further suggest the possibility that the light is not even in the sky, but somewhere else in the dark with the changing colour light on.

    UFO Caught Moving Across The Moon Baffles Viewers

    oman-moon-ufo

    A camera that is said to have a super powerful lens captured an unidentified flying object close to the Moon.

    The UFO sighting video shows an unknown huge black shadow flying upwards across the base of the Moon going to the center.

    As the camera lens zooms in, the tip of the object in question looks to continually spiral while it continues forward.

    Some observers suspect that the triangular, black mark is not the object itself, but a trail of fumes coming from something else.

    Eventually, the mysterious black shadow vanishes into space after it finishes crossing the Moon.

    The video was reportedly shot in the astronomical observatory in Oman, an Arab country on the southeastern coast of the Arabian Peninsula, using a highly powerful telephoto lens.

    It is challenging to determine whether the object is more than a great shadow because of the nature of the footage.

    The footage has been viewed hundred thousands of times since it was uploaded to the Arabic news site. Viewers have offered mix theories regarding the object’s identity.

    One observer said that the object was a space squid while several users claimed it appeared like the NASA’s logo.

    Many other observers suggest wild speculations. One says that the UFO took out the missile of North Korea after it launched from the test pad and that aliens are trying to save humanity from WW3.

    Several viewers also offer a practical suggestion saying it is probably just an optical illusion from clouds or just chemical trails from a plane.

    Square UFO Puzzles Witness In Philadelphia

    ufo

    An unnamed witness in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania claimed to have watched and photographed a slow moving square object flying overhead.

    The witness was at the corner of Allegheny, and Kensington in the city at 8 am on 3rd of April 2017 waiting for the bus, according to MUFON report, Case 82950 of the network’s witness reporting database.

    The witness described the morning as lovely. Upon looking at the sky and clouds, they noticed a black object quite high in the sky while facing north/northwest. They first thought it was debris hovering on the air currents, but later realized that it was moving slowly from east to west.

    The witness described the object as dark black having a shape of a wide diamond or a square on a corner. The object did not appear to reflect light, according to the witness, but they noticed a light flashing around four times in ten minutes.

    The witness got the attention of a young woman to ask a second opinion, the report stated. The woman was also waiting for the bus and answered to the witness that she also saw the same thing in the sky. The reporting witness asked the woman if she could consider it as a helicopter, and she answered no.

    The reporting witness tried to get some photos using his phone, but they did not show much as the object was so high up and apparently quite distant.

    Color-Changing ORB at ISS Caught Live

    An orb that changes colors was caught on the NASA Livestream filmed from the International Space Station on April 27, 2017.


    At the moment NASA were panning the camera a little they spotted the colorful orb on and decided to zoom away from the object. Then after that they held for a minute and went to blue screen.

    Despite NASA cut the camera feed so quickly even though the orb was very distant, Streetcap1 still managed to get the moment the orb comes into view including a couple of frames to enlarge.

    ISS Astronaut captured strange moving objects above Earth - ESA confused!

    ESA astronaut Thomas Pesquet aboard the International Space Station captured strange moving objects above Earth on April 17, 2017.


    The video filmed by Pesquet was initially intended to record an electrical storm near the horizon, just above western US. But he did not only record the electrical storm but also two unidentified objects moving at high speed above the Earth.

    The objects are consistent with intact objects, and were most likely satellites in operation however scientists from the ESA Space Debris Bureau were unable to confirm which satellites were captured in the video…If the objects were satellites at all.

    Mars Trojans may be part of a planet that was destroyed long ago

    Mars and asteroids

    Asteroid entourage

    NASA

    Mars has an asteroid entourage, with nine so-called Trojans trailing in its wake. Now it seems these travelling companions all had the same violent beginning: as the innards of a mini-planet, eviscerated in a violent collision. Some remnants may even have been incorporated into the material that became Mars.

    Trojans are distinct from the asteroids found in the asteroid belt, which begins about 101 million kilometres past Mars and stretches toward Jupiter. While Trojans orbit the sun, like the asteroid belt, they are trapped in gravitational sweet spots that ensure they will permanently trail or precede the planet in its trip around our star. These are known as Lagrange points.

    Mars is the only rocky planet accompanied by Trojan asteroids in stable orbits. Occasionally, a passing asteroid can latch on to Earth’s gravity and temporarily trail the planet for a few thousand years, but Earth doesn’t have any permanent Trojans. They are common around Jupiter, which has about 6000. Neptune has 10.

    True Trojans come from the material that was present when the planets were formed, says Apostolos Christou at the Armagh Observatory and Planetarium in the UK. “The Trojans are really a relic from the early life of the solar system, when the planets were still forming.”

    Trojan Eureka

    In 2013, he was studying a Mars Trojan nicknamed Eureka when he spotted a group of asteroids accompanying it. They all seemed to occupy the same area in Mars’s orbital path, which was strong circumstantial evidence that they shared a common ancestor.

    Previous research on Eureka showed it is rich in a mineral called olivine, which typically forms within the mantles of large rocky bodies, such as Earth and the other terrestrial planets. This implies the asteroid was once part of a bigger object, maybe even a planet, that has long since been destroyed. But asteroids like this are quite rare.

    To find out if Eureka’s fellow Trojans also contained olivine, Christou studied the spectrum of sunlight that two of them reflected and found they did. This suggests that mantle material existed near Mars when it was forming.
    “These asteroids might well be samples of the original building blocks that came together to form Mars and the other terrestrial planets,” Christou and his co-authors say.

    Shaved planet

    It is also possible that the Trojans are pieces of Mars itself, shaved off the planet in its youth and still following in its wake, Christou says.

    “If it turns out that some of the Trojans are pieces of Mars’s mantle, then presumably we can have sample return missions. You can go get a piece,” he says. “The number of Mars-related science questions you can ask, if you have a piece of its mantle in the lab, would be amazing.”

    The Eureka Trojans could shed light on Mars’s past whether the asteroids originated in the planet or not, says Andrew Rivkin at Johns Hopkins University in Maryland, who studies asteroids. If they did come from Mars, their make-up would give clues about the planet’s interior and formation.

    If not, they could still provide clues about where Mars might have been located in the solar system in the past; about collisions that carved out its giant craters; and about the natural history of Mars compared to that of Earth, Venus and Mercury.

    “Then solar system dynamics researchers would have to look at it and say, ‘Here’s why Mars has this group of asteroids, and here’s why Earth doesn’t’,” says Rivkin. He adds that interest in Mars Trojans seems to spike every few years. “Hopefully in the next 10 years, we’ll get to have a spacecraft visit them.”

    These Hairy Little Drones Are Functional Robot Bees

    Some sticky gel and horse hair, and you've got a bee.

    Bee drone

    Robotic pollen collector

    Eijiro Miyako

    Bees are dying globally at an alarming rate, and to brace for an uncertain future, scientists are figuring out how to replace them with robots.

    While bees aren't in immediate danger of going extinct, several species have been placed on the endangered species list. "In today's world," a researcher told the Christian Science Monitor last year, "it's harder to keep colonies alive than it was 20 years ago." Challenges range from habitat destruction to a mysterious phenomenon known as colony collapse disorder.

    Enter Eijiro Miyako of the Japanese National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science. A chemist, Miyako relied on a project from 2007 he had previously considered a failure: attempting to make a liquid electrical conductor, he ended up with an extremely stick gel. The gel sat unused for a decade, until Miyako began to wonder if it could be used to turn drones into bees by giving them a way to grab and transport pollen like a bee's body does.

    Miyako's not the first person to have this idea. Engineers at Harvard have been working on RoboBees for years. Pollination, after all, is a crucial natural function, vital to mass fertilization of the Earth. The difference is mainly in cost. Rather than spend years developing a perfectly functioning robot, Miyako and his team simply bought tiny drones off the shelf at $100 a pop. They then applied horse hair to recreate a bee's fuzzy exterior, and after that applied Miyako's signature sticky gel.

    Using Japanese lilies, Miyako and his team were able to use the drones to transfer pollen from one flower to another. The successful artificial pollination is promising. "The findings, which will have applications for agriculture and robotics, among others, could lead to the development of artificial pollinators and help counter the problems caused by declining honeybee populations," Miyako says.

    After all, a world without bees is not a world you want to live in.

    SHOCK CLAIM: Venus is a SECRET BASE for aliens and NASA, documentary says

    VENUS is being used as a secret base by aliens or by NASA as an intergalactic outpost, according to a new documentary.

    Photos appear to show structures on the barren surface of the second rock from the Sun, indicating an intelligent presence.

    NASA falls the world that Venus is unimaginably hot and windy, making it inhospitable.

    But the film, compiled using images released by both NASA and a Japanese space probe, reveals perfectly rectangular structures.

    Venus could hold clues of ancient or hidden alien civilisations

    The narrator said: "There's always been an eerie blackout when it comes to Venus. You don't hear a lot about it. It's a planet that I believe is shrouded in secrecy for a reason.

    "According to NASA, Venus is a fiery planet with an extremely hot surface. It may have been like Earth once but it's suffering from a runaway greenhouse gas effect.

    "But there appears to be a part of it that's liveable. Where biological entities could be living. There are some structures there.

    This pyramid structure could reveal aliens once roamed around Venus

    "Venus has a lot of white craters that seem to have a lot of structures in them. I believe it's a base. Nature doesn't create symmetrical shapes, but this is a perfect shape.

    "It's raised up off the ground.

    Venus Aliens UFO NASA

    YOUTUBE

    The square structure appears to be inside a crater, maybe sheltering it from the elements

    "These bases with square structures show evidence of intelligent design."

    Because the giant planet is believed to have once had the conditions to support life, it is thought some of the structures may have been left over from past existences. 

    Due to the media blackout surrounding Venus, it is also seen as a potentially perfect location for secret bases.

    The voiceover states: "If I was going to put a secret base I would pick the one that's the least visited and talked about where I could have a base and do it in secret.

    "I think there is a rich history behind Venus. These finds need to be looked into further."

    Virgin Galactic Aims to Fly Space Tourists in 2018, CEO Says

    CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — Richard Branson's Virgin Galactic is on track to begin commercial passenger spaceflights before the end of next year, the company's chief executive said. 

    For years, Branson has been optimistically forecasting the start of rides aboard SpaceShipTwo, an air-launched suborbital spaceplane that is designed to carry six passengers and two pilots to an altitude of about 62 miles (100 kilometers).  

    During the suborbital hop, passengers will be able to experience a few minutes of microgravity and see the limb of Earth set against the blackness of space.

    Branson has been more circumspect in his schedule projections since an October 2014 fatal accident during a test flight of Virgin's first vehicle. But in an interview with The Telegraph earlier this month, the billionaire entrepreneur said he'd be "very disappointed" if the program isn't well underway by the end of next year. 

    Virgin Galactic is one of three companies in the Virgin Group's spaceflight division, known as Galactic Ventures. On Wednesday (April 26), Galactic Ventures chief executive George Whitesides, a soft-spoken, former NASA staff chief, said Branson's expectations for commercial flights in 2018 are realistic. 

    "We're well into test flight now," Whitesides told the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation. The Virgin CEO addressed the committee along with other industry leaders during a hearing on reducing regulation barriers in the space industry.

    Virgin Galactic CEO George Whitesides confirmed on April 26, 2017, that the company plans to fly space tourists in 2018.

    "We're looking forward … to a fairly big transition of our staff to your state of New Mexico," Whitesides added in response to a question from Sen. Tom Udall, a New Mexico Democrat.

    Virgin Galactic intends to base its commercial spaceflight service at New Mexico's Spaceport America, which was finished five years ago at a cost of nearly $220 million. 

    Construction funds for the spaceport came from state oil and gas taxes and from bonds, which were backed by a quarter-cent tax levied by the two counties closest to the 18,000-acre spaceport. 

    "Spaceport America and many New Mexicans hope to see full commercial spaceflight operations begin as soon as possible," Udall told Whitesides. 

    The second in a planned fleet of Virgin spaceships is undergoing testing in Mojave, California. So far, the ship, known as VSS Unity, has made three glide flights. The company has not said when Unity's first powered test flight will be, nor how many flights are expected before the start of commercial service. 

    About 500 people have signed up to take a ride on SpaceShipTwo. Tickets are currently selling for $250,000.

    Scientists Can Now Create Glass Figurines with a 3D Printer

    Intricate glass creations such as miniature castles and tiny pretzels can now be fabricated using 3D printing, according to a new study. The technique could one day be used to manufacture lenses for smartphone cameras as well as other key glass components, researchers said.

    Archaeological research suggests humans have employed glassmaking for millennia. The process typically requires hot furnaces and harsh chemicals. Recently, scientists have investigated whether they could sidestep these drawbacks using 3D printing.

    A 3D printer is a machine that creates items from a wide variety of materials: plastic, ceramic, metal and even more unusual ingredients, such as living cells. These devices work by depositing layers of material, just as ordinary printers lay down ink, except 3D printers can also deposit flat layers on top of each other to build objects in three dimensions. [The 10 Weirdest Things Created by 3D Printing]

    Until now, the only methods for shaping glass using 3D printing also required using a laser or heating the materials to searing temperatures of about 1,800 degrees Fahrenheit (1,000 degrees Celsius), the researchers in the new study said. In both cases, the end products were coarse, rough structures that were not suitable for many applications, the researchers added.

    "People thought glass was too difficult to work with via 3D printing," said study senior author Bastian Rapp, a mechanical engineer at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in Eggenstein-Leopoldshafen, Germany

    Now, scientists have developed a new technique to fabricate complex glass structures using a standard 3D printer. The secret, the researchers said, is something they call "liquid glass."

    "What this work does is it closes an important gap in the palette of modern 3D printing," Rapp told Live Science.

    The scientists began with particles made of silica, the same material used to make glass. These particles were only 40 nanometers, or billionths of a meter, wide, which is about 2,500 times thinner than the average strand of human hair.

    These silica nanoparticles were dispersed in an acrylic solution. The researchers could then use a standard 3D printer to fabricate complex items using this "liquid glass," the study said. Ultraviolet light could harden these objects into a kind of plastic similar to acrylic glass.

    When these pieces of plastic were exposed to temperatures of about 2,370 degrees F (1,300 degrees C), the plastic burned away while the silica nanoparticles fused together into smooth, transparent glass structures, the study said. With the aid of additives, this technique can print colored glasses, tinted green, blue or red, for example, the researchers said.

    "Glass is one of the oldest materials that mankind has used, and it's still a high-performance material, and for many applications, the only choice of material," Rapp said. "What our research does is bridge a necessary gap between 21st-century manufacturing techniques and a material that's centuries old."

    The commercial 3D printer the researchers used could print features as tiny as a few dozen microns. For comparison, the average human hair is 100 microns wide.

    This new method does not require harsh chemicals, and it produces glass components smooth and clear enough for use as lenses and in other applications, the researchers said.

    "You can think of creating tiny lenses for smartphone cameras," Rapp said. "You can think about creating chemically and thermally resistant micro reactors made from glass that chemical reactions can take place in."

    This new technique could also help create optical and photonics components for high-speed data transmission, Rapp said. (Photonic devices manipulate light just as electronic circuits manipulate electricity.) "You can also think much bigger, with 3D curved pieces of glass for architecture," Rapp said.

    "We are now spinning off a company to commercialize this technology," Rapp said. "We hope that in a few years' time, glass will be as convenient to 3D print as plastic is nowadays."

    The scientists detailed their findings online April 19 in the journal Nature.

    In November 1992, paleontologists from the San Diego Natural History Museum were conducting routine monitoring of a construction site on State Route 54 here in San Diego, when field paleontologist Richard Cerutti spotted several fossil bones and portions of a tusk. It took 22 years to piece the story of these fossils together. And the picture it reveals just might change everything.

    This 130,000-Year-Old Mastodon Fossil Just Rewrote Human History

    Burn your textbooks.

    Jacqueline Ronson

    Scientists say they have found evidence that humans butchered a mastodon in California more than 100,000 years before the first humans were believed to have stepped foot on North America.

    If that sounds unbelievable, you’re in good company. “My first reaction on reading the paper was, ‘No, this is wrong. Something’s wrong,’” says John McNabb, an archeologist with the University of Southampton who was not involved with the research, in a video produced by Nature.

    The mastodon fossil was discovered in 1992 on a construction site in San Diego, but it’s taken a quarter century of research for research to build the case to say that yes, this is a site of human activity, and yes, it is indeed much older than anyone previously believed possible. New radiometric analysis, published Wednesday in Nature, dates the mastodon bones to 130,000 years ago.

    No human fossils of that age have been found on the American continent, yet. But you can bet after this a lot of people are about to start looking for them. “If it does turn out to be true, it changes absolutely everything,” McNabb says.

    The researchers involved with the find say they have multiple lines of evidence to support the assertion that the mastodon was slaughtered by humans using stone tools shortly after its death. Distinct breakage patterns, as well as scrapes and other markings on the bones, are consistent with other sites where humans have broken apart bones with rock hammers and anvils to harvest the marrow or fragments of bone. The researchers also conducted their own experiments smashing elephant bones and saw similar patterns. Other possible way the bones could have been shattered and scattered produce patterns inconsistent with what was found at this site, they argue.

    Also, the fragments of bone were found near large stone rocks, and the scientists could not find an explanation for how they got there besides human transport. The stones were found in a layer of deposited silt, where you would not naturally find large rocks.

    It’s going to take more evidence at more sites before the archeological community buys in completely to this new story, but if that happens, the story of the first North Americans will look very different.

    If you slept through high school history, here’s your refresher. The dominant theory for decades was that the first people came to North America over the Bering Land Bridge between Russia and Alaska when water levels were much lower during the Ice Age, about 13,000 years ago.

    It was a tidy theory, but one that’s currently in upheaval as more and more evidence has surfaced that humans must have come sooner, and over water. For example, last year a mastodon kill site in Florida was dated to 14,500 years, long before folks traveling over the Bering Land Bridge could have gotten there. Rare archaeological sites in North and South America have been dated to possibly as old as 30,000 years — but 130,000 years is something altogether different.

    If verified, it would mean that humans figured out how to get to North America long before anyone expected. It would open endless new questions about who these people were, how they got to California, and if they died out or quietly persisted through the millennia.

    The scientific process is constantly accepting new data and revising the story based on the available evidence. Normally, we expect new discoveries to fit within the framework of what was previously known. This is not that. “It’s less than a filling in of a gap than an opening of a whole new chapter,” says McNabb.

    It had the feel of one of those scientific experiments conducted behind a building out of sight and out of mind of the general public on a windswept April afternoon in Schumacher, Ontario.

    On a raised mound stood Chad Mowbray, District School Board Ontario North East (DSBONE) principal of curriculum innovation and technology, whose mission is to transform learning to meet the needs of the 21st century; he is the lead on the iPad initiative, as well.

    He could be a brainy scientist and he looked the part, on that windy day. This could be Kitty Hawk, North Carolina with the Wright Brothers about to fly their prototype plane, except it was much colder!

    Mowbray, with a blue trench coat, flapping in the wind, and with a high tech-looking, white control panel strapped to his chest was about to explain his demonstration to a gathering of school board trustees including DSBONE chair, Doug Shearer, board administrators, reporters and young student robotics experts.

    On the ground about thirty feet to his left stood a white, pizza shaped device on four pads raised about 12 inches above the still brownish back lawn of the DSBONE Education Centre on Croatia Avenue in Schumacher

    It was a white drone.

    Mowbray was going to put the high-tech disk through it’s paces.

    He gave instructions on how to handle drones safely and cautioned the crowd not to get too close to the device especially while it was airborne.

    “These drones have strict controls that must be followed,” Mowbray said. “They can go as fast as 70 Km per hour, but I will keep it in the slow mode we won’t go that fast.”

    “Because of the wind, I am going to keep it in beginner mode,” explained Mowbray. “The beginner mode only gives me a 30-metre radius so I can only 30 metres to the side and only 30 metres off the ground.”

    The drone that Mowbray flew remotely was equipped with a still camera and video.

    He explained that devices such as this are already in use in the mining sector for exploration photography.

    “Amazon, even uses them to make deliveries,” Mowbray remarked.

    They cannot be flown near airports, or intrude in the flight path of airborne crafts. Drones cannot be flown beyond visual contact of its operator.

    He pushed a button on the control device strapped to his chest and the four rotators started to turn and as they gathered speed, the pizza shaped white disk began to wobble and list as it surely started to gain altitude.

    Two feet. Four Feet. Six feet.

    The crowd stood and watched murmuring at what they were experiencing.

    Ten feet. Straight up. 20 feet and as it reached its apex, Mowbray shifted the lever and the disk turned and took off away from the crowd way above the tree tops and into the low overhanging clouds.

    'Oooh's and 'ahh's were heard.

    Followed by hardy hand clapping. This was amazing.

    “Will I get my pizzas delivered by drones,” someone joked.

    “Forget about pizza delivery, can I take one of those to work and beat the ground level traffic,” another person said.

    “It looks like a UFO,” a third person remarked especially as the tiny red lights came into view as the disk spinning way above the crowd for about 10 minutes before Mowbray returned the craft to earth with a gently, soft touchdown.

    “In terms of the curricular use of drones, we have a lot of geography teachers interested in using drones because of they can be combined with geographical location technology and satellite imaging to produce some fascinating topographical images for teaching geography,” Mowbray remarked.

    “In math classes, it can be used to teach coordinate geometry,” indicated Mowbray.

    “It also be used in athletics training by being able to track a cross country runner or a track runner and the Phys Ed department can analyze the running technique to help improve the runner’s performance,” added Mowbray.

    “The Ministry of Natural Resources is using drones to monitor our natural resources by doing tree and moose counts.,” he said. “Also, drones were being used in construction projects, such as at the new dam construction near Latchford, Ontario to see how the project was progressing, and to determine if the construction was meeting the specifications of the design.”

    Doug Shearer, the Chair of DSBONE thanked Mowbray for the demonstration.

    “This is a sample of where the Board and our schools are going with technology in our educational programs,” Shearer said.

    Mowbray agreed with Shearer’s assessment on the importance of educating children on the latest technology.

    “It’s important to bring the teaching of technologies like robotics and drone technology into our schools, because as one study pointed out, by 2035 up to 45 per cent of our current jobs will no longer exist,” said Mowbray. “If we don’t provide our children with education in high tech we will be doing them a huge disservice.

    "We are going to introduce curriculum to teach technology to all of our students in all of our schools,” he said.

    Mowbray said the drones are really new,” he said. “They are not in the schools yet.”

    The first step is to teach the Innovation Coaches at each school across the school board and then introduce them into the individual schools.

    “We hope to get them into the school this spring to whet their appetites and take it form there,” Mowbray said.

    Meanwhile he pointed out that robotics is being taught at each DSBONE school from senior kindergarten to grade 12.

    Why the United States Government Embraced the Occult

    A new book chronicles decades of extravagant attempts to weaponize psychic powers.

    Let us pause for a minute before going further. A dog’s olfactory capabilities are 40 to 50 times greater than those of a human; its hearing is four times stronger. Judging them by human metrics, dogs literally have extrasensory perception. This does not mean, however, that they are psychic or paranormal. And sure enough, further tests failed to deliver any supernatural results. A follow-up program was deemed an “utter failure,” and researchers noted a “rather conspicuous refusal of the dogs to alert.”

    This experiment is only one of the strange stories—many of them recently declassified—in Annie Jacobsen’s Phenomena: The Secret History of the U. S. Government’s Investigations Into Extrasensory Perception and Psychokinesis. As with her previous books on Area 51, Operation Paperclip (the secret project to bring Nazi rocket scientists to the U.S. after the war), and DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, which develops new technology for the Defense Department), this one begins with the fallout of World War II and the extreme measures the military-industrial complex took to unlock and weaponize psychic abilities in the early days of the Cold War. Spanning over 50 years, Jacobsen’s tale takes us from the immediate postwar years to the CIA’s experiments in the 1960s and ‘70s. The Defense Department, she tells us, began its own experiments in the 1980s and ‘90s, before their final incarnation, Project Stargate, was finally decommissioned in 1995.

    Although Jacobsen’s book demonstrates an alarming pattern of government activity, the phenomena themselves are what makes her book so fascinating, and often troubling. “My intention … for this book, she writes, “was not to prove or disprove anyone or any concept, but to report objectively on the government’s long-standing interest in ESP and PK phenomena.” That being said, she cuts these charlatans a great deal of slack while subtly undermining their critics, creating a reading experience that’s alternately frustrating and exhausting. And while she couldn’t have predicted this before finishing the book, Phenomena arrives at the beginning of a presidency that is thriving on conspiracy, distortion of fact, the discrediting of reliable sources, and outright paranoia. With the President of the United States quoting the National Enquirer as a legitimate news source, we’re in desperate need of a thorough account of the overlap between the government and the occult—but given our current climate, such a book also requires greater moral clarity.


    The quest for extrasensory perception, an outgrowth of the nineteenth and early twentieth century Spiritualist movement, had begun in the 1930s, mainly with Duke University’s parapsychology experiments, conducted by J. B. Rhine. But in the wake of World War II, the US government began looking for ways to influence and control human behavior, and, in addition to traditional psychological tactics, attention increasingly turned to parapsychology, as well.

    In the early 1950s, the Defense Department tasked Henry “Andrija” Puharich with locating mushrooms that they believed might unlock psychic powers (a project the CIA was also working on, under the codename Project MKULTRA). During this time Puharich was also researching faith healers, though much of his early research is still classified by the Atomic Energy Commission. Eventually, Puharich began exploring ESP and psychokinesis or PK (the ability to move objects with one’s mind), and began researching test subjects who appeared to have psychic potential.

    Already well underway in period immediately after World War II, this paranormal research was greatly accelerated after a woman named Ninel Kulagina appeared on Russian TV, beginning in the 1960s, moving objects with her mind. Kulagina’s feats may well have been staged (U.S. analysts couldn’t tell for sure), but she spooked them nonetheless, leading to a joint intelligence assessment by the Defense Department on the “Soviet psychoenergetic threat.” Because much of this still remains classified, it’s not always clear how high up these directives went, or who exactly was aware in all cases of how much energy was being spent on this nonsense. The picture that does emerge, though, is a Cold War government terrified that the Soviet Union was developing an edge in any technology, be it normal or paranormal, and one willing to throw money just about anywhere so long as it meant staying ahead of the Russians.

    Threat of an “ESP gap” led to a staggering number of bizarre programs in the ensuing years. In addition to the mine-sniffing dogs and mushroom research, there were lengthy and repeated attempts to prove that humans could communicate telepathically. When the nuclear submarine USS Nautilus became the first vessel to reach the North Pole by traveling under the polar ice caps, a sailor onboard was attempting to send ESP messages using Zener cards (the ubiquitous black and white cards with simple images—a square, a circle, a plus, a star, and a set of wavy lines—to a receiver at a Westinghouse facility in Friendship, Maryland. (One report stated a success rate of 75 per cent; once it hit the press, though, the Navy claimed it all was a hoax.)

    One of the most popular and long-running experiments concerned “remote viewing.” Individuals would sit in locked rooms and attempt to see events from far away. Sometimes these individuals were natural psychics, but as the program grew the Defense Department attempted to prove that ability could be developed in otherwise normal individuals. Much of this was focused on military intelligence gathering, but one researcher, Ed Dames, used taxpayer money to direct supposed psychics to look for evidence of UFOs, to locate the lost city of Atlantis and the Ark of the Covenant, and to watch gladiator games in ancient Rome.

    When Marine Lieutenant Colonel William Higgins was kidnapped by Hezbollah in 1988, the Defense Department brought in Dames, along with psychics Angela Dellafiora and Paul Smith, to see if they could remotely locate where he was being held. While other agencies were working through traditional surveillance and intelligence-gathering mechanisms, Dellafiora told her handlers that Higgins was still alive and confidently pointed to a bare patch of desert on a map of Lebanon where she said he was being held. She then said he was being moved constantly, that he was being held “on water,” and that something about his “feet would be a clue to investigators.” Subsequent reports would reveal that Higgins was already dead; Hezbollah would later release a video of Higgins’s corpse with a noose around his neck, though investigators determined he’d been killed much earlier, his body kept on ice for months.

    Dellafiora’s claims are typical of the kind of “evidence” that runs through Phenomena. She provided no actionable intelligence and was wrong about the most salient question of whether or not Higgins was still alive. But researchers determined he hadn’t been hanged because of the position of his feet in the video (pointing outwards, rather than down, as would have been the case had he been hanged), and her reference to Higgins being “on water” could be taken to refer to the ice his body was kept on—so all of this could somehow taken as a sign of success. For decades, researchers used half-successes like this to justify their attempts to prove individuals could see events far away and provide useful intelligence. Jacobsen offers a few cases of surprising success, which might lead one to believe there is something to remote viewing, but, without any sense of how many failures accompanied these successes (judging by the length of the programs, they must have numbered in the thousands), it’s hard to gauge whether or not these were just random luck.


    Unlike dogs sniffing for land mines, humans see only what they want to see. Reading through Jacobsen’s cavalcade of experimenters and government officials, the recurrent theme is one of longing: a longing for something greater, something beyond the everyday, something more wonderful. Their stories are of ordinary individuals with promising careers who fell to the siren song of pseudoscience; men like Dale Graff, who had an out-of-body experience while saving his wife from drowning in Hawaii in 1969. The experience led him to give up his PhD in aeronautical engineering because “he believed there were pursuits beyond the confines of orthodox science that had greater significance and should be taken on.” Graff would go on to be a leading researcher of remote viewing projects at the Air Force, chasing false positives and statistical noise in search of proof that psychic powers existed.

    Or, even more dismaying, Edgar Mitchell, the sixth astronaut to set foot on the moon, a man who saw magisterial vistas the rest of us can only dream of. And yet, during his first night aboard Apollo 14, while he was supposed to be getting necessary sleep, he was obsessing about ESP, attempting to transmit Zener card images to a friend in a Chicago apartment. While the Apollo 14 mission was a success, the Zener card experiment was a failure. That didn’t stop Mitchell from choosing ESP over NASA: He quit the agency and set out to prove to the world that ESP was real. Mitchell’s time on the moon is the kind of thing that millions of school kids dream of doing some day; it’s a dream that spurs young men and women to study science and go into STEM careers. That someone with such a rare and fantastic opportunity would walk away from it to promote nonsense of charlatans is staggering, and speaks for the strange psychological desperation in so many of Jacobsen’s subjects.

    Ultimately, Jacobsen herself shares this longing. Her first book, Area 51: An Uncensored History of America’s Top Military Base, hinged on a revelation that the aliens at Roswell were in fact genetically-altered humans, created by Nazi doctor Josef Mengele at the behest of Joseph Stalin in order to trigger a War of the Worlds-style panic. She based this claim on one anonymous source whose account has never been corroborated or substantiated elsewhere. As with Area 51, one should proceed with caution in Phenomena before accepting any of the evidence for the supernatural presented here.

    Uri Geller bending a spoon in 1964.Hulton Archive / Getty Images

    Her discussion of the spoon-bending parties of Jack Houck is a good case in point: Houck was an aerospace engineer who believed that “the ability to bend metal had something to do with one’s belief system. Perhaps psychokinesis was not a so-called paranormal superpower but an ability to harness the energy force the Chinese called qi that was latent in all people.” Houck held parties at his house with a “high-energy environment of excitement,” with people holding spoons and shouting “Bend!” According to Houck, in one 1981 party “nineteen out of the twenty-one spoons bent,” a careful use of the passive verb tense to suggest that they did this somehow of their own accord. Jacobsen goes on to write that:

    Houck watched hundreds, then thousands of average Americans suspend their disbelief and bend metal without physical force. Yes, it’s likely some percentage of the guests cheated. But hundreds of them bent hacksaw blades, silver-plated serving spoons, and five-sixteenth-inch steel rods that are physically impossible to bend by hand.

    Perhaps. A Youtube video of one of Houck’s party shows a tent-revival-esque atmosphere and a lot of people physically bending spoons by hand while shouting “Bend!” If you Google “spoon bending,” you’ll yield far more tutorials from magicians and sleight-of-hand experts on how to do this simple stage trick than you will videos purporting to capture the real thing. (As for the hacksaw blades and steel rods—well, any stage magician will tell you a few audience plants can go a long way; after all, Houck was out to make money from this schtick.) Penn and Teller are among many magicians who’ve debunked Houck’s spoon bending, though they’re not mentioned here.

    And then there’s Uri Geller, who looms large in these pages. A former Israeli paratrooper, Geller rose to fame in the late 1960s, performing stage shows that he insisted were not staged and that demonstrated, instead, a real magic that he himself did not fully understand. After becoming famous for the same spoon bending sham that Houck favored, Geller was approached by Andrija Puharich in the summer of 1971, with an offer to come to the United States to further test his powers in a laboratory setting. Geller worked with Puharich, the astronaut Edgar Mitchell, and others in the development of the Defense Department’s remote viewing labs, before going on to make millions “dowsing” for oil corporations in the 1980s. (Most recently, he’s brought his spoon-bending talent to a Kellogg’s cereal ad campaign). While magicians like James Randi repeatedly demonstrated the ways in which Geller’s supposed feats could be easily staged, he continued to dazzle his government handlers.


    Some of this material, including Geller’s antics, was already covered in Jon Ronson’s 2004 The Men Who Stare at Goats, and though Phenomena is far more comprehensive and detailed, in many ways Ronson’s remains the better book. This is in part because Ronson’s bullshit detector is more finely tuned and he better captures the simultaneously hilarious and deeply horrific nature of his material. Ronson also recognizes that the ultimate aim of much of this government research was to harm and kill people: His light-hearted tone takes a deep nose dive in the book’s final chapters as he discusses Project Artichoke—a mind control program in the CIA that used, among other techniques, hypnosis, isolation and forced drug dependency followed by rapid withdrawal—and the death of Frank Olson.

    Olson was a bacteriologist who became involved in Project Artichoke and, in 1953, was dosed with LSD against his knowledge. A few days later, he fell out of a thirteen-story Manhattan hotel window; the CIA has maintained it was suicide, though his family has spent decades arguing it was murder. In contrast to Ronson, though, Jacobsen tends to treat the CIA and the Department of Defense as wacky and endlessly intriguing bureaucracies, and not two agencies who have as one of their primary purposes the killing of human beings.

    Reading Jacobsen’s book in the Trump era makes one wonder if her hands-off reportage of obvious bullshit is not only irresponsible, but actively harmful. As skeptic Martin Gardner told Time magazine in 1973, “Belief in occultism provides a climate for the rise of a demagogue. I think this is precisely what happened in Nazi Germany before the rise of Hitler.” It is one thing to describe the stupid nonsense government researchers believed, but quite another to give the reader the impression that any of it has merit.

    Or maybe something else is at work here. When ARPA (Advanced Research Projects Agency, which eventually became DARPA, the same agency Jacobsen profiled in her Pulitzer-nominated Pentagon’s Brain) researchers evaluated Geller’s supposed feats, they found loose laboratory controls, skewing of data, and bias of researchers influencing the outcomes. There is serious doubt, concluded the ARPA report, “that Geller’s accomplishment transcends the range of activities that a skillful magician can perform.” The CIA, on the other hand, was not interested in whether or not Geller was genuinely paranormal, but “rather whether his capabilities are exploitable by CIA.”

    Which is to say: The odds of the government harnessing psychic phenomena may be slim, but it may be in the government’s interest to continue to promote this belief, as the idea itself may have powerful psychological impacts on America’s enemies—or even its own populace. Perhaps Jacobsen’s sources had reasons for helping her believe in the impossible.

    ‘Area 66’ brings ‘out of this world’ new slot machines

    An unidentified flying object has made its way into Route 66 Casino Hotel’s gambling floor.

    The area, now known as Area 66, features a number of brand-spankin’-new slot games. The area was inspired by Area 51, the top-secret military base that has spawned stories of UFO landings and alien folklore. Area 66 was created to “increase awareness and anticipation” for some of the newest slot machines in the country, according to a Route 66 news release.

    A giant flying saucer stands more than 20 feet tall. The bottom of the UFO contains an “extraterrestrial” language. The “out of this world” experience has lights that are beamed up into the ceiling dome that features images of aliens. The rotating flying saucer display was created by Electrick Gizmos and Display Systems, which worked closely with Route 66 casino management to have the idea come to fruition.

    Route 66 aims to keep its gambling floor fresh with new slot machines. Area 66 slot machines will be replaced regularly with new, exclusive machines to make Route 66 the first to market with 18 new games every 90 days. The evolution of the gambling floor will continue throughout 2017, according to the news release.

    For Route 66 promotions and other information, call 352-7866 or visit rt66casino.com.

    Did Charlottesville residents see a UFO in 1899?

    125 Years of Progress takes you inside The Daily Progress' archives every day in celebration of our 125 years serving Charlottesville and the rest of Central Virginia.

    Could this brief article that ran in the April 28, 1899 edition of The Daily Progress be the first record of a UFO sighting?

    “On Wednesday evening, the residents on West Main Street were very much exercised over a mysterious light which appeared in the northeast. It seemed, according to the best information we could get, to be located just over that notable clump of trees on the Dunlora farm. It was in size apparently as large as a hogshead, round in form, with a slight elongation at the lower edge. It did not flash like a flame, and remained of the same size, neither moving from its position not increasing nor diminishing.

    One gentleman said he watched it for more than an hour, and it did not change in any manner. Many persons assembled on the bridge to see the mysterious luminary but none could furnish anything approaching an explanation of it. It was sufficiently elevated to preclude the idea that it was a house afire, even if the other characteristics of such an event had been present. Every theory as to the strange visitor has fallen through, and yet it remains a mystery apparently unsolved.”

    In that same edition, another unusual brief appeared.

    “In excavating for a foundation in the city, the workman came across the tooth of an animal, at a depth of 14 feet from the surface. The tooth was 12 inches long and 2 ½ inches in diameter. It was broken by a pick, but was fixed together again, and will serve as a basis for investigation. It evidently belonged to some antedeluvian animal.”

    PORTAL TO ANOTHER DIMENSION? Stunned onlookers fear 'wormhole' opened up above them

    STUNNED onlookers were left in awe after this "scientifically impossible" rainbow appeared in the skies - leading to theories of it being a portal to another dimension.

     
    It was filmed by Anne Elle Salikala, over Pagadian City, Zamboanga, in the Philippines, who uploaded it to Facebo.

    The stunning sight led to claims it was anything from a wormhole - a theoretical portal to another dimension, to aliens, or other paranormal phenomenon.

    The footage has been uploaded to UFO and conspiracy theory websites and YouTube channels.

    Scott C Waring, editor of ufosightingsdaily.com, blogged: "The colours are scientifically impossible for them to occur in clouds, however for a cloaked UFO its very possible. 

    "The easiest and most relaxing way a UFO can come close to a human community is by making itself appear as a cloud. 

    Rainbow-Portal

    YouTube

    The stunning colours were filmed and uploaded to social media.

    "At this time there is a small chance that the odd position of the sun and the eyewitness will allow them this rare look at a UFO observing them back. "This is a magnificent alien craft we are looking at here."

    Mr Waring provided no evidence to back up his outlandish claims, but there is a long-running conspiracy theory that some UFOS can conceal themselves by producing a cloud-like substance around them.

    One viewer posted: "What is that? It looks like some sort of wormhole opening up."

    And another said: "A sign from above?"

    The colours are scientifically impossible for them to occur in clouds, however for a cloaked UFO its very possible.

    Scott C Waring

    But, the truth is the stunning visual was later fully explained.

    ABS-CBN resident meteorologist Leonilo Millares said the multi-coloured phenomenon was "cloud iridescence".

    This is caused by a distribution of light through small water droplets in the clouds.

    He said: "This phenomenon will not occur if the water droplets that formed in the clouds are too big."

    He said it could happen anywhere if conditions were right.

    Robots and new technology take the stage in battle against invasive species

    A robot zaps and vacuums up venomous lionfish in Bermuda. A helicopter pelts Guam's trees with poison-baited dead mice to fight the voracious brown tree snake. A special boat with giant winglike nets stuns and catches Asian carp in the U.S. Midwest.

    In the fight against alien animals that invade and overrun native species, the weird and wired wins.

    "Critters are smart — they survive," said biologist Rob "Goose" Gosnell, head of U.S. Department of Agriculture's wildlife services in Guam, where brown tree snakes have gobbled up nearly all the native birds. "Trying to outsmart them is hard to do."

    Invasive species are plants and animals that thrive in areas where they don't naturally live, usually brought there by humans, either accidentally or intentionally. Sometimes, with no natural predators, they multiply and take over, crowding out and at times killing native species.

    'We have totally new tools that were just unthinkable a few years ago.'
    Piero Genovesi, scientist

    Now, new technology is being combined with the old methods — weed pulling, trapping and pesticides. Finding new weapons is crucial because invasive species are costly — $314 billion per year in damages in just the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, South Africa, India and Brazil. It's also one of the leading causes of extinction on islands, such as Guam, according to Piero Genovesi, an Italian scientist who chairs the invasive species task force for an international organization.

    "We have totally new tools that were just unthinkable a few years ago," Genovesi said.

    Case in point: There are companies that now market traps for wild pigs that are triggered by cellphones.

    "There's enough activity that there's starting to be an industry," said University of California, Santa Cruz research biologist Bernie Tershy.

    Lionfish

    A new underwater robot is targeting the stunning but dangerous lionfish, which has spread over the Caribbean, the Gulf of Mexico and up the U.S. East Coast as far north as New York's Long Island, with its venomous spines that are dangerous to touch. With no natural predator in the Atlantic, the voracious aquarium fish devour large amounts of other fish including key commercial fish species such as snapper and grouper. The robot is the creation of Colin Angle, chief executive officer of iRobot, which makes the Roomba vacuum cleaner. Along with his wife, Erika, and colleagues, he created a new nonprofit to turn automation into environmental tools.

    Fighting Invasive Species

    In this artist photo provided by Robots in Service of the Environment shows the first day a new robot was used to hunt dangerous and invasive lionfish in Bermuda. It stuns lionfish with an electric current and then the fish is vacuumed into a container alive and it can later be sold for food.

    (Dr. Philippe Rouja/Robots in Service of the Environment via Associated Press)

    The robot, called Guardian LF1, uses what Angle says is a gentle shock to immobilize the lionfish before they are sucked alive into a tube. In its first public outing this month, the robot caught 15 lionfish during two days of testing in Bermuda. Top chefs competed in a cook-off of the captured lionfish. Lionfish go for nearly $10 a pound and Angle is hoping to get the price of the robot down from tens of thousands of dollars to about $500.

    "What's next?" Angle said. "Our ambition is much larger than lionfish."

    Brown tree snakes

    A few decades ago, native birds started disappearing from the Pacific island of Guam, baffling scientists until they found that non-native brown tree snakes were eating all the birds and their eggs. The snakes, which live in the trees, had no natural enemies and just trapping them wasn't working, Gosnell said. The snakes did prove to have one enemy: the painkiller acetaminophen, a generic form of Tylenol.

    Fighting Invasive Species

    Newly designed aerial bait cartridges containing dead mice are seen here with 80-mg acetaminophen tablets and a biodegradable streamer-like cartridge.

    (USDA/APHIS Wildlife Services via Associated Press)

    So biologists came up with a plan: Use a painkiller pill glued to dead fetal mice as bait. The mice are put in tubes, and dropped by helicopter in batches of 3,000. The mice pop out, and the whole contraption dangles in the trees. It's still experimental, but it will soon go to more regular use. There is one problem, however. Using dead fetal mice as bait is expensive and they have to be kept cold. But biologists are working on a solution: mouse butter. A new bait mixture smells like mice to snakes, but minus the expense and logistical problems.

    Asian carp

    U.S. Fish and Wildlife officials are using souped-up old technology to catch Asian carp, a fish that's taken over rivers and lakes in the Midwest and are making their way towards the Great Lakes. They use a specialized boat — the Magna Carpa — with giant wing-like nets that essentially uses electric current as an underwater Taser to stun the fish, said biologist Emily Pherigo. At higher doses, the fish are killed and float to the surface. In just five minutes, they can collect 500 fish, and later turn them into fertilizer. Using electro-fishing was written about as a possible conservation technique back in 1933, said biologist Wyatt Doyle.

    Fighting Invasive Species

    Asian carp, jolted by an electric current from a research boat, jump from the Illinois River near Havana, Ill.

    (John Flesher/Associated Press)

    Wild goats

    On the Galapagos islands, wild goats were a major problem. In less than five years, scientists wiped out tens of thousands with sterile "Mata Hari" females. Biologist Karl Campbell of the nonprofit Island Conservation introduced specialized female goats that researchers sterilized and chemically altered into a permanent state of heat, to lure the male goats into fruitless goat sex. Santiago Island, once home to 80,000 goats, is now goat free and larger Isabella Island is getting close, he said.

    And now, Campbell and others are going one step further: Tinkering with the genes of mosquitoes and mice to make them sterile or only have male offspring. That would eventually cause a species to die off on an island because of lack of females to mate with. There are worries about regulating and controlling this technology, along with actually being able to get it done, so it is years away, Campbell said.

    The search for intelligent life in the universe will see rapid advancements over the next two decades, thanks largely to improvements in computing power that could make it possible to survey at least a million star systems, according to Seth Shostak, a senior astronomer at the SETI Institute.

    Shostak discussed the state of SETI efforts (SETI stands for search for extraterrestrial intelligence) during a hearing Wednesday (April 26) before the U.S. House Committee on Science, Space and Technology. He was on Capitol Hill with three other scientists to testify on the subject of advances in the search for alien life. 

    Among other initiatives, the SETI Institute is searching for signs of artificial radio signals in the universe that may have been produced by an alien civilization. [Are We Alone? The Search for Life & Odds of E.T.]

    "This experiment will only succeed if we can look at about a million or so star systems," Shostak told the committee. "That would have taken thousands of years with the current technology. Thanks to improvements, mostly in computers, that is speeding up by orders of magnitude. Over next 20 years we will be able to look at about a million other star systems." 

    How likely is it that scientists will find signs of life in those million star systems? Shostak's response reflected both an optimistic and a realistic outlook: "I bet everyone a cup of coffee that we will find something," he said, before quickly adding, "I may have to buy a lot of coffee."

    Shostak has said previously he thinks signs of intelligent life will be found by 2040. 

    Are we the only intelligent life in the universe? See how we intend to find out in this full infographic.

    The improvements that will so greatly advance scientists' ability to search for signs of intelligent beings in the universe are largely twofold, Shostak said. First, as computer processors continue to follow Moore's law, computer processors will steadily get smaller, cheaper and faster. Thus, SETI scientists will be able to write computer software that simultaneously sifts through data collected by radio antennas as the antennas capture signals from multiple star systems. 

    "Instead of looking at one star at a time, which is what we've done … you could look at tens, hundreds, even thousands of stars at a time with enough computer-processing capability," he said. "And of course that capability is coming down the pipe." 

    The second improvement Shostak noted is that SETI scientists are working on using machine learning in their search for extraterrestrial communication signals. Now, scientists program computers to search for "one kind of pattern" in the radio data that could indicate an artificially created radio signal, he said. But that approach is extremely limiting — like a person who can hear only one note while listening to a symphony. Machine learning could "broaden the kind of thing [we] can recognize" in the radio signals, which would "speed up the search," he said. 

    Shostak also discussed the SETI Institute's efforts to search for artificial radio signals among the seven planets in the TRAPPIST-1 system, the discovery of which was announced in February. The seven planets orbit a single red dwarf star, and all of them orbit closer to the star than Mercury orbits the sun. As many as three of the seven planets could be habitable, according to Adam Burgasser, a professor of physics at the University of California, San Diego, and a member of the team that discovered the seven planets. Burgasser also appeared before the committee with Shostak. 

    The short distance between the worlds in the TRAPPIST-1 system means that if life emerged on one planet, it could have been spread to the other planets via meteoroids. What's more, if intelligent life formed there, it would have likely colonized the other planets, so the SETI scientists are looking for communications sent between planets. 

    "This could be a mini federation of planets, if you will," he said. "We are using our Allen Telescope Array to look at the Trappist-1 system and we … wait for planets to line up and then see if there's any difference in the amount of radio radiation coming our way. Because at that point, you're looking down a communication pipeline between these planets."

    The other three panelists focused mainly on efforts to search for "simple life" in the universe, meaning life-forms that aren't identified based on their technology. Scientists are now eager to study the planets in the TRAPPIST-1 system using telescopes set to come online in the next five to 10 years. Those telescopes could find chemical signatures of life in the atmospheres of those planets. The TRAPPIST-1 planets, Burgasser said, are just a few examples of recently discovered, potentially habitable planets located relatively close to Earth, that will provide excellent subjects for those studies.  

    "This and other recent discoveries represent the beginning of an era of exoplanet exploration that, in the next five to 10 years, will allow us to identify truly habitable worlds and possibly life beyond Earth," Burgasser said. "These transformative advances, addressing one of humanity's most persistent questions — 'Are we alone?'— are fully achievable through a diverse portfolio of research programs led by U.S. scientists and supported by federal funding to NASA, [the National Science Foundation] and other science agencies."

    The four members of the panel as well as the committee members also discussed the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST). The telescope, set to launch in 2018, could analyze the atmospheres of some alien planets in greater detail than any current telescopes. Beyond JWST, the panelists mentioned the upcoming Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS), which is expected to identify hundreds to thousands of new planets around other stars, Burgasser said. The Wide-Field Infrared Survey Telescope (WFIRST) and large ground-based telescopes set to come online in the 2020s, will also improve the study of exoplanet atmospheres, the panelists said. 

    "Our generation is the first in human history to know that there are worlds beyond our solar system. Will the next generation know whether life exists on those worlds?" Burgasser said. "We have the opportunity and the responsibility to continue our nation's legacy of discovery so that our children and grandchildren can search for life in new ways."

    Californians believe the truth is out there: New book says the state is the the UFO capital of America with almost 16,000 sightings from 2001-2015

    • Book gathered data from two popular UFO sighting websites
    • Authors discovered there were  121,036 eyewitness reports from 2001 to 2015
    • Also found 15,836 sightings were in California  and mostly from the Bay Area

    Californians have reported more close encounters with the third kind than any other state in the US, new research has shown.

    A recently published book found that of the more than 120,000 reports of unidentified objects seen from 2001 to 2015, 16,000 of the sightings originated in the The Golden State.

    The authors of the book 'UFO Sightings Desk Reference', have suggested that the warm weather could have something to do with it – people spend more time outside, which provides them with more chances to spot a UFO.

    'Since 1969 the government has claimed no interest in the subject, and the press and media either ignore or ridicule any mention of UFOs,' reads the book's synopsis.

    'Yet citizen scientists and non-governmental organizations have continued to this day the research into this important subject: this book seeks to make the hardest data available accessible to the general public, as well as other UFO researchers.'

    Although California reigns supreme in sightings, the book highlights that people have claimed to have spotted 'alien spacecraft' all over the US.

    'We found that UFOs were sighted in every county in the United States,' explained 'UFO Sightings Desk Reference' co-author Cheryl Costa, who is a former military technician and aerospace analyst, told CBS in an interview.

    'Every county had at least one sighting sometime in the past 15 years.'

    'We think a great deal of it has to do with California's weather,' said Costa.

    Costa explained that people spend a lot of time outdoors because of the mild climate, which gives them more opportunities to see 'UFOs'.

    From 2001 to 2015, Californians reported 15,836 sightings and a majority of them were in the Bay Area: 159 in Marin County, 327 in San Francisco County, 188 in San Mateoo County, 518 in Alameda County and 569 in Santa Clara County

    CALIFORNIANS MISTAKE NAVY MISSILE TEST FOR UFO 

    The Navy conducted missile tests off the coast on February 14, 2017, leading Californians who spotted the mysterious white light in the sky to believe they had seen a UFO. 

    Several people from the Bay Area down to Los Angeles spotted the light and captured the incident in photographs and videos that were later circulated online.




    But the Navy issued a statement revealing they had conducted two missile tests off the coast of California early that Tuesday morning, ABC reported.

    Videos of the missile test, many of which were filmed on the road, show a bright point in the sky with a beam of light radiating below it.

    In one video, a woman could be heard exclaiming 'It's E.T!' while others took to social media to declare they had seen an alien spaceship.

    But the Navy issued a statement saying two Trident II D-5 missile test flights were launched at sea at 3.30am PST and 6.20am, CBS reported.

    All missile test flights were conducted from sea, flew over the sea, and landed in the sea. At no time did the missiles fly over land,' the statement said.

    'All missiles are tracked from multiple sources from launch until final impact in the ocean. The missiles were not armed.'

    Costa and her wife Linda Miller Costa, who is a librarian at Le Moyne College and a former librarian at the National Academy of Sciences, NASA and the Environmental Protection Agency, and she also co-wrote UFO Sightings Desk Reference, gathered data from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) and the National UFO Reporting Center for the book – both sites let users share their alleged extraterrestrial sightings.

    The book is a collection of incidents from real witnesses who claimed the truth is out there and the duo has added research to back up their beliefs.

    The authors of the book 'UFO Sightings Desk Reference', have suggested that the warm weather could have something to do with it – people spend more time outside, which provides them with more chances to spot a UFO.

    In New York County, the authors reported 426 sightings from 2001 to 2015, which came second to Suffolk County with 554, The NY Times reported.

    Interestingly enough, The District of Columbia was found to have 154 incidents and Wyoming, which only has 5.8 people per square mile, had 337.

    And some of the sightings were not UFOs but fireballs falling from the sky, which made up nearly 8 percent of Indiana's 230 sightings and less than 5 percent of Colorado's 157.

    But the duo found that Los Angeles County in California had more sightings than 40 other US states combined. 

    Altogether, the Costas collected '121,036 eyewitness reports from the two combined national data bases,' they wrote in the book.

    This UFO was recorded by Anne Elle Salikala of Facebook, who personally witnesses the is glowing iridescent UFO hovering over a cloud near her home. The colors are scientifically impossible for them to occur in clouds, however for a cloaked UFO its very possible. As a matter of fact, I once saw a tiny baseball size UFO just 2 meters from me with the exact same colors, so I know first hand. The easiest and most relaxing way a UFO can come close to a human community is by making itself appear as a cloud. At this time there is a small chance that the odd position of the sun and the eyewitness will allow them this rare look at a UFO observing them back. This is a magnificent alien craft we are looking at here.

    Location of discovery: Wiltshire, England
     
    This crop formation was found on a hill top in Wiltshire this week. Such formations in fields are believers to be the landing prints of an alien space craft, but some say its a message sent to us by future humans. Either way, they are extraordinary and very exciting to contemplate how they were made. 
     
    A new crop circle is found in Whiltshire every month, you would think that some farmer would have $50 to buy a live cam and set it up to watch their fields...since a farmer usually has a crop of $75,000-500,000 depending on the land size. Video of the making would change how science sees these formations forever.

    'Giant Hurricane' on Saturn: 1st Images Back from Cassini's Epic Ring Dive

    NASA's Cassini spacecraft dove between Saturn and its rings yesterday (April 26), snapping the closest-ever views of Saturn's atmosphere. The raw images, which began to stream back early this morning, indicating the probe had survived its journey, show intricate structures and a dark, swirling storm-like feature (which NASA called a "giant hurricane").

    The spacecraft came within about 1,900 miles (3,000 kilometers) of Saturn's cloud tops and within 200 miles (300 km) of the rings' innermost visible edge during the plunge, NASA officials said in a statement. Because Cassini scientists and engineers didn't know what to expect of the gap — although it looked clear, unknown dust and debris could have proved harmful — the spacecraft was turned so its 13-foot-wide (4 meter) antenna acted as a shield as it dove, collecting data all the while. Only 20 hours after the pass was it scheduled to turn back toward Earth. "Our closest look ever at #Saturn’s atmosphere and giant hurricane," NASA officials wrote in a Twitter post. During a Facebook Live event, researchers later confirmed that the dark storm was the center of the vortex at its pole, stretching 2,000 km across, or almost 1,500 miles.

    The spacecraft flew through the ring plane at 77,000 mph (124,000 kph) relative to the planet, and at that speed tiny particles could have posed a large threat to its sensitive instruments without the shielding. The rest of Cassini's unprocessed photos from the crossing are available online, along with more than 380,000 images documenting the spacecraft's journey, starting months before it arrived at Saturn in 2004.

    "No spacecraft has ever been this close to Saturn before," Earl Maize, Cassini project manager and a researcher at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in California, said in the statement. "We could only rely on predictions, based on our experience with Saturn's other rings, of what we thought this gap between the rings and Saturn would be like."

    "I am delighted to report that Cassini shot through the gap just as we planned and has come out the other side in excellent shape," he added.

    Saturn's atmosphere is relatively cool and mostly made of hydrogen, and the pressure at Saturn's cloud tops is about the same as Earth's pressure at sea level, NASA said. It hosts layers of clouds and that huge, spinning hexagon-shaped storm on its north pole, as well as more temporary storms that streak across the planet's surface. (One was nearly as wide as Earth.) It also hosts winds among the fastest in the solar system — NASA's Voyager missions, which passed Saturn in 1980 and 1981, measured winds at more than 1,100 mph (1,800 kph). 

    Many mysteries of Saturn remain to be determined: the exact length of its day and internal structure, as well as the exact composition and age of its rings, could become clear over the course of Cassini's explorations.

    Cassini will complete 21 more dives before its Grand Finale plunge and burn-up in Saturn's atmosphere Sept. 15 — its next dive is May 2. Because each of the dives takes a slightly different path, engineers will be ready to shield the spacecraft again if needed. But ideally, it will be smooth sailing for the spacecraft until its ultimate atmosphere dive, collecting photos of the unexplored regions all the while.

    ALIEN IMPLANT REMOVALS: BEFORE AND AFTER EFFECTS

    Picture

    Several years after the surgical removal of their alleged alien implants, five individuals courageously accepted to take part in an interview to discuss their “before and after effects”. All persons, one male and four females, shared one thing in common: UFO encounters and contact with non-human alien beings.

    Dr. Roger Leir, a podiatrist from Thousand Oaks, California, founder of FIRST (Fund for Interactive Research and Space Technology) and Derrel Sims, C.Ht., R.H.A., a certified hypnotherapist , co-founder of FIRST and experienced UFO Investigator of over 27 year, orchestrated the successful surgeries with a team of competent medical professionals and volunteers. The first set of “implant” surgeries took place on August 19, 1995 at Dr. Roger Leir’s podiatry clinic in Thousand Oaks, California.

    Pat Parrinellio, a 47 year old male from Houston, Texas, and Mary Jones (a pseudonym) 52, also from Texas, had the anomalous objects appear in X- rays, although both UFO experiencers had no record of previous surgeries. Both individuals were investigated by Derrel Sims of HUFON (Chief Investigator for Houston UFO Network) and referred to Dr. Roger Leir for surgery, based on their past UFO encounters and X-rays which confirmed the anomalous objects. Pat’s object was removed from the back of his left hand, and Mary’s objects excised from her left big toe. All services were performed free of charge.

    The alleged implants removed from the first set of surgeries were studied by two different pathologists, and then sent to various independent laboratories for extensive scientific analysis. The tests performed on these alleged alien implants were: a pathology/tissue evaluation, laser induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS), extensive metallurgical testing involving a density immersion test, X-ray energy dispersive spectroscopy, scanning electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction pattern analysis and electron/magnetic and fluorescence property analysis. Isotopic range tests are also in progress. Tests were conducted by the National Institute of Discovery of Science (NIDS), New Mexico Tech, and other independent sources.

    But that is not all. While these unusual objects were being evaluated for scientific study, another set of implant surgeries took place on May 18, 1996. Two women from this second set of surgeries came forward for this interview and follow up study. Dorothy O’Hara, a 61 year old female from Palm Springs, California, and Alice Leavy , 40, from Newberry Park, California, each had similar objects removed from their left lower leg. Another woman, Licia Davidson, 37, who has had numerous UFO and alien encounters, had a rare, crystalline-like object removed from her foot in January of 1997.

    FINDINGS

    “The findings of these implant surgeries are highly unusual,” reported Dr. Leir. “In all these cases, there was virtually no inflammatory response.” This is not the usual finding in foreign tissue reactions. Normally, foreign bodies embedded in tissues result in some type of acute or chronic inflammatory response, and may include fibrosis and cyst formation. Such was not the case here. The pathology reports of the first two surgeries revealed that the metallic objects were encased in a very dense, tough, grey membrane consisting of proteinaceous coagulum, hemoseridin and pure keratin. More simply, blood protein and skin cells that are usually found in the superficial layer of the skin. The tough, biological “cocoons” encasing the implants were also found to contain nerve proprioceptors – nerve and pressure cells of the wrong tissue type for that part of the body. These implant cocoons also fluoresced a bright green color in the presence of an ultraviolet light source.

    The implants from the two women from the second set of surgeries did not exhibit metallic properties like the implants from the first set of surgeries. In fact, the spheroid, whitish objects did not contain the tough, biological outer jackets, or fluoresce from a UV light source. These types of implants (possibly biological) also lacked the expected inflammatory response, according to the pathology reports. The crystalline-like object excised from the foot in the most recent surgery, also lacked the tough, grey, outer membrane and had virtually no inflammatory response, as in the other implant surgeries. Test results from the first set of implants revealed that the lammelar, needle shaped metallic objects in question are basically meteoric in origin, containing at least eleven different elements.

    In an interview with Alien Encounters Magazine, (July 1997 issue, United Kingdom) Derrel Sims commented on the uncommon, non-rejecting human response to the implants: “It seems that the dense fibrous membrane may have been the person’s own surface skin. If this is the case, it appears that the metallic objects are wrapped in a sheath of keratinaceous material (surface skin). Nerve fibers then surround the tissue and appear to be attached to larger nerves. The fact that both persons (from the first set of surgeries) objected verbally and physically could be an indication of this (nervous system) connection.” Mr. Sims believes the indications are very strong that these implants are extraterrestrial in origin. “But”, Mr. Sims concedes, “Whatever the scientists say who have examined the objects say, is what we will say.” Derrel Sims has stated that a scientific peer review of all tests must be done before more specifics can be released. This is the standard course of action taken in any scientific endeavor.

    Scientific evaluation is our best ally, but the experiences and opinions of the courageous individuals involved in these implant surgeries are equally important. A series of simple questions were posed to each of the participants. When asked as to how and when their implants might have been inserted, Pat Parrinellio from Houston, Texas believed his implant could have been inserted during a UFO encounter he had in 1954, at six years of age . Mary Jones recalls two UFO encounters when her metallic objects could have been implanted, in 1969. “In the first frightening UFO encounter”, Mary commented, “I was on a camping trip with my family while pregnant with my third child.” Oddly enough, one month after Mary’s child was born, she had another alien encounter while at home during the night. Conversely, Dorothy O’Hara from Palm Springs, California and Licia Davidson also from California both replied, “I have no idea when the object was inserted.” Alice Leavy commented that she first noticed the lump on her leg following a UFO encounter involving other witnesses in San Diego, in 1993. “I actually noticed the lump” Alice clarified, “when I discovered the scoop mark also on my left leg, after the UFO encounter.”

    If the alien “abductors” are responsible for implanting objects in the bodies of their abductees, then are the aliens cognizant of the fact that the implants have been removed? So the next question was posed, “Did you experience any UFO sightings, alien abductions, odd dreams, missing time or paranormal events just prior to, or after the implant surgery? (within a month)” Pat Parinellio revealed, “Yes, an unusual set of events took place with another witness involving an orange glowing UFO one evening about a week before the surgery. After the surgery, I noticed that my psychic abilities seemed to decrease.”

    Dorothy replied, “About a week before the surgery I had a dream-like, abduction experience involving many other people in a large locker room type facility, waiting in line for what seemed to be a shot in the backs of our necks. Also, right before an appointment to meet one of Derrel Sims’ associates for an interview (regarding the implant surgery), I and another women had a strange experience. It was like getting stuck in a time warp. I ended up being very late for the appointment. And then, late one evening after I returned from the surgery, I had an alien encounter, that I couldn’t clearly recall.”

    Both Licia and Alice did not recall any unusual events soon before or after the implant surgery. Mary experienced a rare, pain and swelling in her toe and foot about a week before the surgery. “At that time”, Mary revealed, “I knew exactly where the objects were in my foot, I could feel them.” Prior to that, Mary had no pain or sensations of that kind in her toe. “What was really strange,” Mary admitted, “was that the moment I stepped out of the car to meet Derrel Sims just prior to the surgery, my pain stopped.”

    The real question one may wonder about is: Now that the implants have been removed, will the aliens continue to come back and abduct the abductees? All individuals except Mary Jones were able to answer with a resounding, “Yes”. Alice elaborated on an abduction she had two months after the implant surgery, “I retired to bed early due to a headache. My husband awoke at 1:00 am because the whole bedroom lit up like daylight. He looked at the clock, reached over to touch me and found that I was gone. Paradoxically, my husband quickly went back to sleep. The next day I felt very ill. I don’t recall anything during the night, but I noticed the next day that my dog had nervously clawed several areas in the house, as if he were trying to escape something frightening.”

    As to changes in health, mood, dreams or psychic phenomena after the surgery, all five agreed as to some type of change. Mary Jones simply stated that she felt a sense of peace after her objects were removed. Dorothy commented, “I felt a tremendous sense of relief after the surgery.” Licia remarked, “Yes, I had a dramatic and immediate mood lift after the object was removed from my foot. I also stopped having the pain and the weird, watery sensation surrounding my foot.”

    The most striking changes were noted by Dorothy. ” I had a severe diuretic effect and lost much water weight a week following the surgery. Then my health progressively worsened and I developed angina and edema. This heart problem was a recurring complication from a previous illness I had in my late twenties. I also experienced extreme fatigue, and could not concentrate. The illness lasted about a month, after which my energy and health returned with more vigor. My creativity and mental clarity improved remarkably. ( I am a writer) I had a startling improvement in my memory where I was able to recall a previous alien abduction experience from 1991. In other words, it was the first time I was able to pierce through a screen memory from an abduction, although it took me three days to process the memory. It was difficult mentally and emotionally. In hindsight, after the implant surgery and recovery from illness, I felt detoxified.” Pat, on the other hand, noticed a more subjective change and simply stated, “Yes, a part of me which remains hidden has undergone quite a few changes of paradigms.”

    Alice and Dorothy shared a common symptom several months after their surgeries. Alice remarked, “About eight months afterwards, I had shooting pains in my left leg and noticed the implant scar turned bright red and hurt, and lasted for about a week. Also, around that same time period I had a strong, precognitive vision that later came true in exact detail.” Dorothy added, “Yes, I also noticed a strange reaction in my leg and implant scar about six months after the surgery. I felt shooting pains in my left leg, especially at the implant site. The incision scar turned bright red for about a month.”

    Could these changes in each of the individuals interviewed alter their views of the UFO phenomena after the fact? Pat admitted he was basically in denial about the UFO abduction phenomena previous to the surgery. “And yet,” Pat stated, “it seems like the more one becomes aware of the fact, the more I realize that I don’t know anything. But I do sense that something is accelerating.” Dorothy concurred with Pat in that she formerly believed the UFO phenomena was all nonsense. Afterwards Dorothy realized, “I have been able to work through many issues in my life, now that I am no longer in denial. Now I have a more practical and spiritual approach to life, and am more concerned with helping others in a practical sense, not promoting some New Age or metaphysical philosophy.” Mary also admitted she had no interest or knowledge of the UFO abduction phenomena previously.

    “Even now,” Mary added, ” I have no real interest in the UFO topic, yet cannot deny there is something to it.” Both Licia and Alice had a good knowledge and belief in the UFO abduction field. Licia stated that her views have not really changed. “The best way I can describe it,” Licia explained, “is that I have had a real powerful, extreme source of the highest of highs and the lowest of lows.” Alice admitted, “Previously, I felt the aliens were possibly evil. Now, after the surgery and as life and my abductions continue, I think the aliens just have a job to do. It’s not a good job. I think they are just following orders.”

    So, is the UFO community at large telling the whole truth about what really happens to abductees? Pat says, “Truth is subjective. I know there are a few researchers who are holding to the narrow line of finding out what is going on.” Alice agreed that for the most part, the abduction researchers are reporting things as they are experienced, but for one small exception. Some top researchers are not mentioning the apparent military involvement. Licia concurred with Alice, “Top researchers are touching on the major issues, but in my opinion, do not want to get involved in the government end of it.” Dorothy forthrightly stated, “Many people in the UFO community have their head in the clouds and believe in an overly benevolent, fanciful spiritual philosophy. There is not enough critical analysis. I have learned more from one on one conversations with other abductees than from the public lecture circuit.” As to the US government covering up UFO facts from the general public, all individuals agreed. Alice concluded, “Yes, especially the Roswell, New Mexico UFO incident of 1947.

    Most of the implantees described noteworthy mental, psychic or health related changes following their implant surgeries. Four of them reported a continuation of some type of alien abduction activity. The two women who had the “biological” type implants removed, experienced strikingly similar post surgical changes, involving shooting pains and reddening of the incision scar for a short period of time.

    The important thing to consider here, is the whole clinical picture. Over reliance on the physical test results of the implants alone are not substantial enough to solve the implant mystery – let alone the question of the alien presence. If not, then what is? The lives and experiences of the abductees themselves, tell us that we need to stop and listen. The answer lies somewhere in between science and the hearts of the people.

    Evidence of advanced ancient civilizations on Earth—over 100,000 years ago?

    The idea that advanced ancient civilizations existed on Earth in the distant past has captured the interest of authors, historians, and archaeologists across the globe. Every once in a while, experts make discoveries that completely change everything we know about history. What if, in the distant past—as far as 100,000 years ago—Earth was inhabited by civilizations that were completely different from what we are today?
     
    Do you believe that Intelligent civilizations lived on Earth over 100,000 years ago? Many controversial discoveries point to the possibility that hundreds of thousands of years ago, advanced civilizations roamed our planet. What do we really know about history and the past of the human race? Has mankind been on planet Earth only a couple of thousands of years as mainstream researchers suggest?
     
    Or is it possible that advanced ancient civilizations inhabited our planet hundreds of thousands of years ago? Recently, several discoveries seem to point to that possibility.
     
    Why mainstream researchers opted to ‘ignore’ details and clues which point towards the existence of civilizations that are much older than we previously believed is still an enigma for a lot of people. Evidence of civilizations that inhabited our planet ‘before recorded history’ can be found in all corners of the world. In Ancient Egypt, Mesoamerica and Sumeria we find written texts that speak of great civilizations, great rulers, and a ‘golden age’ that lasted for thousands of years.

    Let’s take a trip to Africa, there, we will find evidence of a major ancient settlement that predates our entire history.

    Around 150 km west of port Maputo, we find the remains of a huge metropolis that measures, according to initial studies, around 1500 square kilometers. This ancient city is according to researchers, part of an even larger community with about 10,000 square kilometers, believed to have been constructed between 160,000 to 200,000 years before Christ.
     
    The surrounding geology is interesting due to numerous gold mines located in the vicinity. Researchers have proposed that a missing civilization from the distant past, could have lived and proposed in that part of the world while mining gold.
     
    Researchers point to the Ancient Anunnaki.
     
     
    Lost civilizations in the Amazon?
     
    Is this another civilization that predates the Inca and their ancestors? No one could have imagined that somewhere, in the remote areas of the Amazon, a lost civilizations would be found.
     
    Rapid deforestation in combination with Google Earth has allowed the detection of 210 geoglyphs in 200 different site sites, in a strip of 250 kilometers by 10 kilometers in the Amazon. Just like the Nazca lines, the incredible geometric, zoomorphic and anthropomorphic designs of the Amazon can only be truly appreciated from the air. The question remains, why?
     
    The question remains, why?
     
    Numerous remains of what is obviously part of an ancient and hitherto unknown civilization have appeared under the trees of the Amazonian rainforest. According to researchers, 260 huge avenues, long irrigation canals, and fences for livestock have been spotted from the air. The discovery was made in the vicinity of the border between Bolivia and Brazil.
     
    The lost pyramids of the Amazon: Traces of a prehistoric civilization!
     
     
    In the tangled and dense jungles of the Amazon, there are numerous mysteries that could probably help us understand how ancient civilizations lived in the distant past.
     
    Even thought that several researchers believe that the Pyramids of Paratoari are truncated ridge spurs, which can take the form of natural pyramids, there are many other researchers who firmly believe that these structures were built in the distant past by a civilization that completely been ignored by mainstream history
     
    Excursions to the region found plenty of evidence of Incan inhabitance in the area, such as petroglyphs, paved roads, and platforms.
     
    The mysterious pyramidal structures were first identified via NASA satellite photograph number C-S11-32W071-03, released in 1976. The images caused numerous researchers to venture to the Manu area of dense tropical rain forest in southeast Peru in hopes to find out whether these structures were actually built by an ancient civilization, lost in time.
     
    The Sphinx, an 800,000-year-old monument?
     
     
    One of the most mysterious and enigmatic monuments on the surface of the planet is without a doubt the Great Sphinx at the Giza plateau in Egypt. It is an ancient construction that has baffled researchers ever since its discovery and until today, no one has been able to accurately date the Sphinx, since there are no written records or mentions in the past about it. Now, two Ukrainian researchers have proposed a new provocative theory where the two scientists propose that the Great Sphinx of Egypt is around 800,000 years old. A Revolutionary theory that is backed up by science.
     
    The study was presented at the International Conference of Geoarchaeology and Archaeomineralogy held in Sofia titled: GEOLOGICAL ASPECT OF THE PROBLEM OF DATING THE GREAT EGYPTIAN SPHINX CONSTRUCTION.
     
    The authors of this paper are scientists Manichev Vjacheslav I. (Institute of Environmental Geochemistry of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine) and Alexander G. Parkhomenko (Institute of Geography of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine).
     
    The starting point of these two experts is the paradigm shift initiated by West and Schoch, a ‘debate’ intended to overcome the orthodox view of Egyptology referring to the possible remote origins of the Egyptian civilization and, on the other, physical evidence of water erosion present at the monuments of the Giza Plateau.
     
    The truth is that we have very little knowledge when it comes to the origins of live and modern civilization.
     
    In a recently published study, experts concluded that DIFFERENT ‘Complex’ life forms may have once existed on Earth before our species came into existence.
     
    “This research shows that there was enough oxygen in the environment to have allowed complex cells to have evolved…
     
    According to scientists, we are not the FIRST complex life forms on planet Earth. In fact, another complex life form existed once but disappeared at some point during Earth’s long history. Then, after a while, complex life forms reappeared.
     
    Mainstream scholars agree that given our ‘current’ knowledge of Earth’s history, complex life appeared on our planet at least some 1.75 BILLION years ago.
     
    So, if complex life could have existed on Earth in the distant past, why is it so improbable and unlikely that advanced civilizations flourished on Earth?
     
    Curiously, according to Jason Wright, assistant professor of astrophysics and astronomy of the Pennsylvania State University ‘technological’ alien civilizations may have once lived on one of the planets in our solar system, and eventually disappeared without a trace.
     
    In a study titled ‘Prior Indigenous Technological Species’, Professor Wright proposes that ancient aliens may have even lived on either Mars, Venus or Earth.
     
    The scientific paper—which has been published in arXiv—states: A prior indigenous technological species might have arisen on ancient Earth or another body, such as a pre-greenhouse Venus or a wet Mars.
     
    However, if these advanced alien civilizations existed in our solar system—perhaps even Earth—most evidence of their existence is probably gone by now.

    Trump Orders Complete Disclosure of UFO Data Kept by CIA In Area 51

    The Baltic Sea anomaly is a 60-metre diameter circular rock-like formation on the floor of the northern Baltic Sea that emerged in June 2011. The CIA knows that it is really a crashed alien UFO Submersible.
     
    As he spoke to astronauts on the International Space Station on Monday, President Donald Trump has ordered the Central Intelligence Agency and National Security Agency to review and release all files concerning space aliens and Unidentified Flying Objects or UFOs.
     
    Trump promised to take this step in his inaugural speech. He said: "We stand at the birth of a new millennium, ready to unlock the mysteries of space, to free the Earth from the miseries of disease, and to harness the energies, industries and technologies of tomorrow.
     
    "A new national pride will stir our souls, lift our sights, and heal our divisions."
     
    It comes as a surprising development to some, as Trump hasn't commented on the issue of extraterrestrial life and has never before specifically said that confidential UFO sighting papers should be released. Talking to Astronaut Peggy Whitson on the ISS, however, Trump recommitted NASA to a Mars mission during his second term, i.e. the early 2020's.
     
    During her campaign Hillary Clinton made it clear she would do all she could to release secret files on UFO's. Of course, her husband Bill Clinton made the same promise and never did. The truth is still out there.
     
    A comparison of the Baltic Sea Anomaly and the Millenium Falcon spaceship.
     
    The Baltic Sea anomaly is a 60-metre diameter circular rock-like formation on the floor of the northern Baltic Sea that emerged in June 2011. The CIA has proof that it is really a crashed alien UFO Submersible.
     
    Russian intelligence performed a study in 2008 theorizing that the Baltic Anomaly is in fact, an alien spacecraft that accidentally emerged from subspace or "hyperspace," on the ocean floor within the Earth's basaltic crust. They shared these extraordinary findings with the CIA. Soon the world will know--unless the deep state gets to Trump first.
     
    HyperNormalisation is a 2016 BBC documentary by British filmmaker Adam Curtis. In the film, Curtis argues that since the 1970s, governments, financiers, and technological utopians have given up on the complex "real world" and built a simple "fake world" that is run by corporations and kept stable by politicians. The film was released on 16 October 2016 on the BBC iPlayer.
     
    The term "hypernormalisation" is taken from Alexei Yurchak's 2006 book Everything was Forever, Until it was No More: The Last Soviet Generation, about the paradoxes of life in the Soviet Union during the 20 years before it collapsed.
     
    A professor of anthropology at the University of California, Berkeley, he argues that everyone knew the system was failing, but as no one could imagine any alternative to the status quo, politicians and citizens were resigned to maintaining a pretence of a functioning society. Over time, this delusion became a self-fulfilling prophecy and the "fakeness" was accepted by everyone as real, an effect that Yurchak termed "hypernormalisation".
     
    One chapter begins with a montage of unidentified flying object (UFO) sightings recorded by members of the public in the United States. It argues that the phenomenon surrounding UFOs in the 1990s was born out of a counter-intelligence operation designed to make the public believe that secret airborne high-technology weapons systems the US military tested during and after the Cold War were alien visitations. Top secret memos forged by the United States Air Force Office of Special Investigations were allegedly leaked to ufologists who spread the manufactured conspiracy theory of a government cover-up to the wider public. The method, called perception management, aimed to distract people from the complexities of the real world.
     
    American politics are described as having become increasingly detached from reality. Curtis uses the collapse of the Soviet Union at the end of the 1980s as an example of an event that took the West by surprise because reality had become less and less important. A Jane Fonda workout video is shown to illustrate that socialists had given up trying to change the real world and were instead focusing on the self and encouraging others to do the same. The video is intercut with footage of Nicolae Ceaușescu and his wife, Elena, being executed by firing squad and buried following the Romanian Revolution in 1989.

    Nieuwe foto van mysterieus lichtfenomeen in Hessdalen. Is dit bewijs dat Noorwegen wordt bezocht door UFO’s?

    Wetenschappers, UFO-jagers en andere enthousiastelingen zijn al jaren gefascineerd door het mysterieuze Licht van Hessdalen in Noorwegen.

    Op een conferentie in Wenen is nu een foto onthuld die in september 2015 door wetenschappers van het Østfold University College in Hessdalen is gemaakt.

    Ze wachtten twee jaar met het naar buiten brengen van de foto en kozen er bewust voor om het beeld te presenteren tijdens een wetenschappelijke bijeenkomst.

    Echt bestaat

    Ze willen op deze manier laten zien dat het fenomeen echt bestaat en onderzoekswaardig is.

    Op de foto is een lichtbol met een doorsnee van ongeveer 1,5 meter te zien op 30 meter hoogte. Het object bevindt zich op ongeveer 100 meter van de camera. De bol verlicht bovendien het aardoppervlak.

    Onderzoekers spreken in het geval van Hessdalen overigens niet van een UFO, maar HP (Hessdalen Phenomenon) of UAP (Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon).

    Dezelfde plaats

    Het object is diverse keren op dezelfde plaats vastgelegd. Dat kan ons helpen begrijpen hoe deze lichtbollen ontstaan, aldus Bjorn Gitle Hauge en Anna-Lena Kjoriksen van het Østfold University College.

    Ze hopen dat meer wetenschappers geïnteresseerd zullen raken in het fenomeen zodat ze het mysterie achter deze bollen verder kunnen ontrafelen.

    Toen de wetenschappers, die de camera’s vanuit een tent in de gaten hielden, naar buiten renden was de lichtbol alweer verdwenen.

    95 procent zeker

    De bol verscheen niet op de volgende foto, die vijf seconden later was genomen.

    De onderzoekers zijn er 95 procent zeker van dat het hier gaat om een foto van het Licht van Hessdalen. Ze hebben uitgesloten dat het gaat om een parhelium of een reflectie.

    Ze proberen nu te achterhalen wat het dan wel is.

    Het spookachtige lichtverschijnsel wordt al sinds 1941 gezien in Hessdalen. Een piek in het aantal meldingen lag tussen 1981 en 1984.

    Witness describes disappearing object at tree top level

    A California witness driving in an “extremely rural” area of Imperial County reported a late-night encounter with an object moving along at the tree top level, according to testimony in Case 82810 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

    The witness was driving in rural Imperial County, CA, when the object was seen. (Credit: Google)

    The witness was searching for a specific area at 2:30 a.m. when the incident occurred.

    “I pulled to the side of a two-lane, paved road to check my GPS mapping,” the witness stated.“I observed two white lights traveling in a slow and seemingly aimless manor to my west between 10 and 30 degrees above the ground. The distance was hard to judge due to the darkness and terrain, however, my best estimate would be less than a mile.”

    The witness got out of his vehicle and leaned against the front fender to smoke a cigarette.

    “I watched curiously as the lights drifted and floated silently in the sky. I got back into my car and drove up the road approximately 100 yards in order to see if I might get a better perspective. Upon exiting my vehicle, the lights appeared a little closer, however, I still heard no sound coming from the direction of the lights.”

    The object was observed at the tree top level. Pictured: Imperial County, CA. (Credit: Google)

    Then the lights disappeared.

    “Approximately 30 seconds later the lights simply disappeared. No bright flashes. No speeding off into the distance. They just vanished from my view. Puzzled, but not concerned, I stamped out my cigarette and got back into my car.”

    But the witness was quickly startled again.

    “Before I had a chance to start the engine, a man seemingly appeared out of nowhere behind the driver’s left rear of my car. I was quite startled by his sudden appearance, but for some reason I wasn’t frightened. He was dressed in dark clothing and I remember his shoes were noisy, like hard soles on gravel. Being startled as I was, I quickly said to him, ‘holy (deleted) dude, you just scared the crap out of me.’ He didn’t bend down to my window. He just stood there. Then he asked in a very casual manor if I needed directions. I told him that I was good and that I was just watching the lights. He didn’t say anything else. He just turned around and walked away as if he was returning his car.”

    The object eventually vanished from view and the witness had an odd encounter with a man walking along the isolated roadway. Pictured: Imperial County, CA. (Credit: Google)

    The witness tried to see where the man would go.

    “I tried to watch in my mirror to see where he had pulled off the road, but there wasn’t anything like a vehicle that I could see, and he was no longer in sight. I started my car and drove off very confused about what had just happened. I have purposely omitted some details that I feel may seem like the ramblings of a crazy UFO nut or may put me in peril.”

    The witness reports that the object’s lowest altitude was at the tree top level and that it appeared to be more than 500 feet away, but less than one mile away.

    Imperial County, Texas, has a population of 174,528. California MUFON Field Investigator Linda Fletchtner is investigating.

    IN BRIEF
    Another Google founder apparently has plans of building an aircraft. According to sources, the vehicle closely resembles a zeppelin and is currently housed at NASA's Ames Research Center.

    While Larry Page was busy bringing his “flying car” to reality, another Google co-founder, Sergey Brin, was apparently on a similar path, trying to create a vehicle that will take to the skies as well.

    However, unlike Page’s land/air hybrid vehicle, the Kitty Hawk Flyer, which could be introduced into the market as early as this year, Brin’s project is a giant airship resembling a zeppelin that’s currently housed at the NASA Ames Research Center. According to a report by Bloomberg, the project was spurred after Brin saw old photos of the USS Macon, an old airship built by the US Navy.

    This particular prototype could have been created as part of a potential business venture — which would be timely, given that we’re at the cusp of airborne vehicles and flying taxi fleets becoming a reality. Or, it could be simply a passion project for Brin, who apparently has a long-standing fascination with airships. We just don’t know yet.

    News of this project has piqued the curiosity of many. New airship technology could potentially help cut delivery and transport costs, given that it can accommodate massive amounts of cargo and be more fuel efficient. But whatever his intentions are for this project, Brin certainly has a few experienced friends he can tap for advice.

    Impossible Physics: Meet NASA’s Design for a Warp Drive Ship

     
    Mark Rademaker /
    IN BRIEF
    Warp drive would allow us to travel 10 times faster than the speed of light without actually breaking the speed of light – however, most scientists think that the technology will never actually work. Despite this, NASA has released designs for a faster-than-light ship that uses the hypothetical tech.

    Before we jump into this, you should know that a number of scientists are currently researching the feasibility of warp drive (and EMdrive and a number of other modes of faster than light travel); however, most think that such forms of space travel simply aren’t viable, thanks to the fundamental physics of our universe.

    So although part of this article is simply, “Oh my gosh, look at this amazing design,” that’s not the entire point. To that end, let’s take a moment to break this all down a bit so we have an understanding of what exactly is being proposed in relation to warp drive, and why it is met with such skepticism, before we get a bit too carried away…

    Alcubierre warp drive via Anderson Institute
    Alcubierre warp drive via Anderson Institute

    In 1994, physicist Miguel Alcubierre proposed a new kind of technology that would allow us to travel 10 times faster than the speed of light without actually breaking the speed of light. That seems a little contradictory, doesn’t it? After all, we’ve been told time and again that light is the universal speed limit – nothing in the cosmos can travel faster than it (much less 10 times faster).

    And herein lies the key to the Alcubierre drive: When you use it, you aren’t actually moving through space.

    This technology would not actually propel the ship to speeds exceeding light; instead, it uses the deformation of spacetime permitted by General Relativity to warp the universe  around the vessel. Essentially, when the drive is activated the spacetime behind expands, while in the front it contracts. In this respect, the path taken becomes a time-like free-fall.

    Alcubierre’s ideas have lead to a number of interesting thought experiments in quantum field theory; however, as mentioned above, most scientists think that the technology will never actually work. When you think about it, that kind of makes sense. Obviously, warping space requires a lot of mass and energy, and ensuring that the space where you are located isn’t warped is tricky business. Indeed, the proposition was mostly just a thought experiment when it was first proposed – not something Alcubierre thought was actually viable technology.

    As physicist Sean Carroll notes:

    In short, it requires negative energy densities, which can’t be strictly disproven but are probably unrealistic; the total amount of energy is likely to be equivalent to the mass-energy of an astrophysical body; and the gravitational fields produced would likely rip any ship to shreds. My personal estimate of the likelihood we will ever be able to build a “warp drive” is much less than 1%. And the chances it will happen in the next hundred years I would put at less than 0.01%.

    [Reference: Jalopnik]

    That said, scientists will likely be producing papers addressing these ideas for some time. We’ll continue to cover them as they come out (and though things may look painfully dismal for this technology, who knows what the future may hold).

    But on to the design…

    In 2010, NASA physicist Harold White revealed that he and a team were working on a design for this faster-than-light ship, and this is the most recent design of what such a ship might actually look like. As you can see in the image, the ship rests between two enormous rings, which create the warp bubble.

    Image via Mark Rademaker
    Image via Mark Rademaker

    Artist Mark Rademaker worked on the project with White. In the release, Rademaker asserts that he spent over 1,600 hours working on the design. The ship is called the IXS Enterprise, and it is meant to fit the concept for a Faster Than Light ship. Mike Okuda also brought input, and designed the Ship’s insignia.

    To give you some idea of just how awesome warp technology would be: A trip to the nearest star (Proxima Centauri), which rests some four light-years from Earth, would ordinarily take over 17,000 years. However, with the Alcubierre drive, it would take a little under five months. For those of us who have a mental breakdown on 10 hour plane flights, 5 months might still seem like quite a bit of travel time. But when we are talking about the vast cosmic distances between Earth and Proxima Centauri, a 5 month trip would be an achievement of monumental proportions (keep in mind, it took Curiosity 8 months just to reach Mars).

    See more images of the design here.

    Two Brothers Photograph the Moment a UFO Descends Upon City Hall

    Almost 100 years ago, two bothers immortalized the moment when a ‘flying disk’ descended over their city to admire the vivid Christmas lights. Their image remains one of the first photographic evidence of a UFO appearing over an urbanized area.

    In 1937, Leonard Lamoureaux, age 21 was on leave from the army when he decided to visit Vancouver City Hall in order to take a few photos of the brilliant Christmas light display. Accompanying him was his brother Wilfred.

    After they found a good spot to take the photos, a sudden “bright blue light” descending from the sky puzzled them both. It became larger and larger as it zoomed into their line of sight, and after a while the two brothers managed to see the source of the blinding light.

    Two Brothers Photograph the Moment a UFO Descends Upon City Hall

    Leonardo depicted the bizarre sighting as “two saucers” with open ends, facing each other and glowing bright blue. After the UFO got relatively close to the city hall, it started to slowly move horizontally across the sky until it reached the top of the flagpole. From there, the luminous craft hovered for a moment in front of the two astounded brothers, and fortunately that was enough for Leonardo to immortalize the moment using his camera.

    After that brief moment, the bright UFO took off rapidly without making any specific engine sound, as the two described. They were shocked because of what they’ve seen, and couldn’t explain what actually happened there.

    WE’VE NEVER SEEN ANYTHING FLY SO FAST.

    Although Leonard Lamoureux and his brother Wilfred passed away some time ago, their unique UFO episode still lives on through Leonard’s daughter, Debra DeCamillis who still resides in the Vancouver Lower Mainland area.

    The negative has been lost due to the passing of time, thus leading some skeptics into believing that what the picture reveals is nothing more than a watermark defect caused by the development of the print. However, Leonard’s daughter contradicts the nonbelievers by telling about her father who seemed so excited every time he told others about this unusual event:

    I know for a fact there was no bubbles on the film, or watermarks because I was fascinated by negatives as a child and saw that negative many times. On the rest of the pictures there was nothing but pictures of lights, so I know it had no bubbles or watermarks on it.”

    Two Brothers Photograph the Moment a UFO Descends Upon City Hall

    She provided additional details regarding this UFO encounter, all the information originating from her father’s tales of the event:

    The camera was on a tripod of sorts because Dad was trying to take sequential shots of the courthouse to capture all the lights. But he was not using a timed exposure, his camera was not sophisticated enough. He did say that he could actually see the bubble or tail as he called it that the object was encapsulated in.

    The detailed description of the sighting along with the disputed picture offers amazing proof of the UFO phenomenon seen almost one hundred years ago in a time when CGI and Photoshop were nothing but wild ideas.

    Another notable thing is the remarkable likeliness between the object from this photo and another seen in a fresco from 1350. The objects from both images show similar characteristics, while at the same time fitting the description of present-day alien crafts and UFO reports.

    Two Brothers Photograph the Moment a UFO Descends Upon City Hall

    Could there be indeed a link between these two appearances? If so, could this connection extend to religion, since both objects appear in a religious and holy environment? Is it possible that extraterrestrials beings were involved (and maybe still be) in religious affairs, thus explaining the miraculous deeds of different saints or prophets throughout history?

    BRITISH COP WITNESSES TALL WHITE ALIENS INSPECTING FRESH CROP CIRCLE

    According to a story circulating in the UFO and alien conspiracy theory blogosphere, a British Police Sergeant had an encounter with Tall White Aliens on July 6, 2009. The aliens were allegedly inspecting a freshly-made crop circle in a field in Wiltshire, England, when the police officer, who was off-duty at the time, encountered them.

    The mystery of the incident was reportedly compounded by the refusal of Wiltshire Police to comment when contacted by local UFO and paranormal investigators. A police spokesperson reportedly said the authorities could not comment on the incident because it was a “personal matter,” according to the paranormal blog Tales from Out There.

    “The police officer was apparently off duty when this happened so we have no comment to make because it is a personal not a police matter.”

    The unnamed Wiltshire Police officer was driving past a field when he saw strange-looking men walking in the field. He had a “strange feeling” about the appearance of the “men” from afar, so he stopped his car to investigate, Express reports.

    As he walked towards the field, he saw three tall men with long blond hair, all more than six feet tall. The men were walking slowly in the middle of the field as if they were searching for something or inspecting the crop. Because the men were dressed in white overalls, he thought they could be forensic officers investigating an incident in the field.

    When he reached the side of the field, he heard a crackling sound similar to the “sound of static electricity.” The strange sound seemed to be running through the field and the crop moved in ripples with the crackling noise.

    He raised his voice to draw the men’s attention, but they ignored him and refused to look up. But as soon as he entered the field, they looked up and appeared agitated.

    And as he approached, they suddenly took to their heels.

    The strange men, according to the officer, “ran faster than any man he had ever seen.”

    “I’m no slouch but they were moving so fast. I looked away for a second and when I looked back they were gone.”

    Possible tall white/nordic Alien. I think she/he is beautiful.

    The crackling noise continued spreading around on the field as the strange-looking men ran away. The officer noticed they ran with an odd gait.

    Unnerved by the strange encounter, he hurried back to his car and drove back to Marlborough in Wiltshire.

    “I then got scared,” he said. “The noise was still around but I got an uneasy feeling and headed for the car.”

    He reported the incident to his superiors but they did not take his story seriously. He continued to have an uneasy feeling all day, with a pounding headache.

    “For the rest of the day I had a pounding headache I couldn’t shift,” he said.

    Determined to get to the bottom of the mystery, he contacted Andrew Russell, a local crop circle expert. Russell investigated the incident with the help of a colleague identified as Colin Andrews.

    “At first he thought they were forensic officers as they were dressed in white coveralls,” Russell wrote in a report summarizing the officer’s experience. “He stopped his car and approached the field.”

    “The figures seemed to be inspecting the crop,” he continued. “When he got to the edge of the field he heard what he believed to be a sound not dissimilar to static electricity.”

    “This crackling noise seemed to be running through the field and the crop was moving gently, close to where the noise was,” he added.

    He shouted to the figures who, at first, ignored him… When he tried to enter the field they looked up and began running.

    The investigators said they were convinced the officer’s account was truthful.

    “I am quite convinced the officer had an experience that day and one that we have not fully explored,” Russell wrote.

    According to Russell, the witness’s description of the tall men matches the appearance of Tall White Aliens. The crop circle experts concluded after investigations that the aliens were inspecting crop circle created a few days before.

    Who made the crop circle remains a mystery. Russell could only guess the crop circle carried a coded message that the Tall White Aliens were trying to decode at the time the police officer saw them.

    When the investigators contacted the Wiltshire police, the authorities refused to comment. They insisted the incident was a “personal matter” and that the police authorities were not investigating the strange claims.

    The incredible story sparked discussion on Scott C. Waring’s UFO Sightings Daily blog.

    According to Waring, the police officer’s claim that the strange men moved oddly could be explained by the structure of the legs of Tall White Aliens. Tall White Alien legs below the knees have a shape similar to a dog’s, Waring claimed.

    “The police officer says that they moved oddly, which they do, because the shape of their leg (from the knee down) actually goes opposite direction from ours,” the alien hunter commented.

    But, according to Waring, Tall Whites are able to mingle with humans unnoticed because they use advanced technology to disguise their appearance.

    “Some kind of holo-emitter makes [their feet] appear human like, but they still cannot mask their odd walk,” Waring wrote.

    Alien conspiracy theorists claim that Tall White Aliens concluded a trade agreement with the U.S. government in the 1950s. The treaty required the U.S. government to provide certain mineral resources the aliens needed in exchange for access to advanced aerospace technology needed to run Pentagon black projects.

    It is claimed that a community of Tall White Alien scientists, engineers, and technicians live in an underground base at the Nellis Air Force Base, a few miles outside Las Vegas.

    Ancient Texts Reveal: Earth Was Ruled For 241.000 Years By 8 Kings Who Came From Heaven

    Yesterday I watched “The Arrival” – the story and representation of the movie baffled me so much, that I had to make some digging throughout the internet.

    Listed in 2 books on Google, the “Ancient Writings to Sacred Texts: The Old Testament and Apocrypha” and “The Book of Genesis“, say that 8 Immortal Kings ruled The Earth for 241,200 years, although that wasn’t enough of a proof for me, so I kept digging.

    From the “Book of Genesis

    HERE’S WHAT I FOUND:

    A dozen copies of a mysterious text referred to as the Sumerian King Lists – “an ancient stone tablet originally recorded in the Sumerian language, listing kings of Sumer (ancient southern Iraq) from Sumerian and neighboring dynasties, their supposed reign lengths, and the locations of the kingship” – have been uncovered over the years by archaeologists in regions as disparate as ancient Babylon, Susa, and Assyria.

    They are all believed to be copies of a single original manuscript which is thought to have been written during the Third Dynasty of Ur by most historians, although some believe it might have been written even earlier.

    The best-preserved example of this ancient text is called the Weld-Blundell Prism and is on public display in the Ashmolean Museum.

    The Sumerian King Lists have shocked historians ever since they were uncovered by modern human beings.

    The text describes a fascinating period in history when beings referred to as gods ruled over humankind of tens of thousands of years.

    Each of these kings met their end during the Great Flood which devastated the population of the world. After the flood, the text claims that another ‘kingship was lowered from heaven’ and that these beings took up control of the people of Earth once again.

    New Planet Discoveries Signal a Shift in the Hunt for Alien Life

    With ever more intriguing worlds found in the sun’s neighborhood, the search for extraterrestrials is set to take some bold new steps.

    An illustration shows what the landscape might look like from the surface of Proxima b, currently the closest known exoplanet that is potentially habitable.

    Our galaxy is positively stuffed with alien worlds.

    That exoplanets swarm the Milky Way, and that a good fraction of them are small, rocky, and temperate like the planet we live on, means the search for life beyond Earth is moving past the question of whether these worlds are common and on to the more profound question of whether those faraway worlds also host life.

    “We’re no longer wondering if rocky planets are in the habitable zones of stars,” the University of Arizona’s Olivier Guyon said during last week’sBreakthrough Discuss conference, hosted by the Breakthrough Initiatives. “As far as we can tell, they’re everywhere. We’re transitioning into life-finding. We have a lot of work ahead of us.”

    Whether planets are a galactic feature or a bug has really only been resolved in the last five years or so, as instruments with increasingly sharper eyes have carved out the signatures of planets from faraway starlight and delivered those worlds to eager Earthlings.

    Tantalizingly, some of those worlds circle the stars nearest the sun, and they are in orbits that make it likely that liquid water dampens their surfaces. Scientists are not even close to nailing down which characteristics tell us that, yes, a planet is indeed habitable, or to parsing all the ways in which life might write its signatures, whether biological or technological.

    Still, some of the most intriguing planets are relatively nearby, which makes them obvious targets in the search for life—as well as possible destinations for the first wave of dedicated interstellar spacecraft.

    PLANETS, PLANETS EVERYWHERE

    The sun’s neighborhood is filled with small, dim red stars called M dwarfs. Though they’re the most common type of star in the galaxy, these dwarfs weren’t always considered good places to search for habitable planets—that’s only become a trend over the last couple of years. Now, based on data from several surveys, we know that one out of every four M dwarfs has a planet that’s the same size and temperature as Earth, says Caltech’sCourtney Dressing.

    Take the star just next door, a red dwarf 4.24 light-years away called Proxima Centauri. It has a planet.

    Actually, there’s at least one planet around that small star. At the Breakthrough meeting, Guillem Anglada-Escude, of Queen Mary University of London, pointed to two other intriguing signals in his team’s data. Neither of the other two signals can be confirmed as the fingerprint of a planet right now, but the team hopes more observations will reveal an answer.

    This Hubble picture shows Alpha Centauri A and Alpha Centauri B, the brightest members of the stellar trio collectively known as Alpha Centauri, the closest star system to our own. The third star, Proxima Centauri, is fainter but is the closest to Earth of the three.

    Slightly farther afield, another candidate world orbits a dim, cool star six light-years from the sun. Named after astronomer E.E. Barnard, this next-nearest star has been the hypothetical host of planets for decades, ever since Dutch astronomer Peter van de Kamp erroneously announced in the 1960s that at least one gas giant lived there.

    If the freshly detected world is really there, it’s more massive than Earth and is likely too cool to be considered habitable. But planets don’t usually form in isolation, so it does offer hope for future finds around Barnard’s star.

    “We will be hunting for warm planets in the summer, but there is not such a clear candidate for a warm planet yet,” Anglada-Escude said.

    And Luyten’s star, a red dwarf 12.3 light-years from the sun, hosts not one but two confirmed planets, one of which is in a habitable orbit. There are a handful of other stars within 30 light-years or so that could have worlds of their own. That so many potentially habitable exoplanets are hanging out nearby “builds up the case for developing direct-imaging techniques leading to characterization,” Anglada-Escude says.

    “I think there’s a good chance that a planet that has life on it orbits one of the nearby M dwarfs we’ve already heard about today,” Dressing said, referring to the planets around Proxima Centauri and two small, more distant stars called TRAPPIST-1 and LHS 1140 that have captured recent headlines.

    In other words, it’s no longer enough to know that these planets are there. It’s time to get to know them.

    READING THE SIGNATURES OF LIFE

    The best worlds to scrutinize for signs of life—for the foreseeable future, at least—will need to orbit close enough to Earth for telescopes to get a good look, and be positioned so that they cross their host star’s face from our perspective. That way, light from the star can filter through any potential atmosphere and allow us to read its contents.

    That’s one of many tasks NASA’s Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satelliteand the James Webb Space Telescope, among other projects, are gearing up to do over the next decade. If all goes to plan, TESS will find more planets worth staring at, and JWST will use its powerful eye to peer through any distant atmospheres, looking for molecules that might betray the presence of life.

    At the Breakthrough meeting, Cornell University’s Lisa Kaltenegger and others proposed that something like a mix of methane and oxygen-containing gases such as ozone could herald the discovery of extraterrestrial life—if they were found wafting through the air curled around a rocky, temperate planet. But even that isn’t a slam-dunk. Proving life was truly responsible for those gases promises to be a controversial, Herculean task.

    Plus, there are plenty of unfamiliar ways for life to find a foothold, using alien metabolisms that produce unexpected signatures. Kaltenegger and Cornell’s Jack O’Malley-James suggested last year that life-forms on Proxima’s planet, for example, could have evolved to use their star’s predominantly UV light by generating fluorescent proteins, and that telescopes on Earth could be tasked with looking for fluorescent biosignatures.

    Recognizing life in all its possible biological forms isn’t just a question that’s plaguing exoplanet experts—it’s something scientists searching for life in the icy oceans of the outer solar system are also grappling with.

    “We have one data point for life: That’s our own planet,” Kaltenegger says. “So for now, we’ll use what we know from the Earth. If we get a second data point, which I hope we do, I think all our priorities are going to change.”

    Then there’s the question of techno-signatures, which could take the form of alien radio transmissions, pulsed laser beams, waste heat generated by advanced civilizations, bizarre blips in stellar brightness, or even the disappearance of host stars entirely. In other words, scientists searching for manifestations of advanced civilizations ought to expect the unexpected and search for the weird, though proving a technological origin rather than a funky astrophysical one, will also be quite difficult.

    “We really do need to embrace this idea that it may be little gray boxes, not little green men, that we end up detecting,” said the SETI Institute’s Jill Tarter.

    A SECOND ORIGIN

    Merely finding life, no matter how far-flung or bizarre, doesn’t necessarily tell us how it sprouted, and whether the process was any different from the origins of life on Earth. That is an even tougher and more nagging question, says NASA astrobiologist Chris McKay.

    Proving a second origin—and therefore making a more profound commentary on the fundamental prevalence of life—can be done from afar, McKay said, although it’s just on the hairy edge of possibility.

    Astronomers could look for the “handedness” of alien biomolecules and see if it matches what we have on Earth. Here, the molecules that build our proteins are asymmetric and assume what scientists refer to as a left-handed chirality—meaning they’re mirror images of hypothetical right-handed forms, and they twist light in a particular direction.

    There’s no easy answer for why or when lefties ended up dominating Earth’s amino acids (this is a subject of great debate), but biochemists generally think single-handedness is crucial for efficient molecular engines.

    Finding evidence for right-handed molecules in the gases of an exoplanet, or in the plumes of an icy moon in this solar system, would be strong (though not necessarily iron-clad) evidence for a second origin, McKay says.

    The next big leap in exploring questions about alien worlds is to visit one up close, and that’s where the Breakthrough Starshot project comes into play. If the team succeeds, humanity will propel a nano-sized spacecraft to the Alpha Centauri system in the next several decades and capture the first images of an exoplanet from within its own system.

    It’s a lot to hope for, but answering one of the stickiest, most profound questions humanity can ask will necessarily demand perseverance, patience, and fearlessness. And perhaps one day, the answer to whether we’re alone in the cosmos will be as definitive as whether other planets are spinning in the sky.

    Aliens exist and they’re ‘a lot smarter’ than us: Ridley Scott

    By Chris Perez

    Paging Ellen Ripley!

    “Alien” director Ridley Scott believes aliens actually exist — and that they’re coming for us.

    “I believe in superior beings,” the filmmaker said Thursday, while promoting the sixth installment in the sci-fi horror franchise, “Alien: Covenant.”

    “I think it is certainly likely,” he told the Agence France-Presse. “An expert I was talking to at NASA said to me, ‘Have you ever looked in the sky at night? You mean to tell me we are it?’ That’s ridiculous.

    “The experts have now put a number on it having assessed what is out there,” Scott added. “They say that there are between 100 and 200 entities that could be having a similar evolution to us right now. So when you see a big thing in the sky, run for it.”

    The veteran director was one of the first to make space scary with 1979’s “Alien,” which became a hit with both fans and critics, spawning prequels, books, toys and video games.

    His “Xenomorph” and “chestburster” aliens have terrified moviegoers for nearly four decades — wreaking havoc on the film’s main character, Ripley, played by Sigourney Weaver while leaving loads of bodies in their wake.

    Scott said Thursday he believes real-life extra-terrestials would also not be ones to mess with.

    “They are a lot smarter than we are,” he explained. “If you are stupid enough to challenge them you will be taken out in three seconds.”

    But Scott claimed he would have nothing to worry about.

    “Nothing scares me,” he joked. “I have a 9mm (pistol).”

    “Alien: Covenant” will open nationwide on May 19.

    There are aliens out there says director Ridley Scott


    GETTY/AFP/File / Brad Barket
    Director Ridley Scott said he could not believe the terror he had created when he went to see people watching the first "Alien" film

    "Alien" creator Ridley Scott said Thursday that he was convinced that there are aliens out there -- and one day they will come for us.

    The veteran director said he believed in higher beings as he prepared to release the sixth episode of the sci-fi horror series, "Alien: Covenant", next month.

    "I believe in superior beings. I think it is certainly likely. An expert I was talking to at NASA said to me, 'Have you ever looked in the sky at night? You mean to tell me we are it?' That's ridiculous.

    "The experts have now put a number on it having assessed what is out there. They say that there are between 100 and 200 entities that could be having a similar evolution to us right now.

    "So when you see a big thing in the sky, run for it," he joked.

    "Because they are a lot smarter than we are, and if you are stupid enough to challenge them you will be taken out in three seconds."

    "Alien: Covenant" the second of the prequel films, is set in 2104 on board a spaceship carrying 2,000 cryogenically frozen colonists to a distant planet when they chance upon an uncharted paradise.

    But their voyage soon turns into a gory nightmare that makes "Alien'"s original "chestbuster" scene seem tame in comparison.

    - 'Hideous beyond belief' -

    The "neomorph" aliens in the new film are based on the goblin shark "which has a jaw which hinges in two ways. It's scary, hideous beyond belief actually," Scott said.

    The 79-year-old British-born director -- who was also the brains behind "Blade Runner" -- said he never tired or scaring people out of their skins.

    AFP/File / FABRICE COFFRINIA

    "When I did the first 'Alien' I had to get a sense of responsibility because the reaction to the kitchen ("chestbuser") scene with John Hurt was beyond anything I expected -- and it was not good," he told AFP.

    "But the film was very successful because people are perverse."

    He said he could not believe the terror he had created when he went to see people watching the film. "Everybody was half underneath the seat watching by the time you get to the kitchen scene. There was a woman underneath the seat with her husband holding her. I said this is not healthy."

    Scott, however, claimed that he was unshockable.

    "Nothing scares me. I have a 9mm (pistol)," he said.

    "If there is a problem I tend to close down into calm. When you walk in in the morning on a film and 600 people turn and all look at you, that is scary," he said.

    "Alien: Covenant" has a religious subtext, the director insisted.

    He said he was "agnostic", but this did not stop him making a film about Moses, "Exodus: Gods and Kings", in 2014.

    "Either religion is the greatest trick played on mankind. Or it is not, and that poses some great questions, and this film is a great context for those," he said.

    Scott, who was knighted in 2003, is about to make a film about the Battle of Britain during World War II, when the Royal Air Force fought off the German Luftwaffe.

    "Alien: Covenant" opens across the world from May 10.

    Alien SHOCK as top scientist reveals 'extraterrestrials existed on Earth BEFORE humans'

    ALIENS could have been living on Earth long before humans, a top space scientist has claimed.

    By Jess Bell 

    Professor Jason Wright could have the answer as the hunt for extraterrestrials in our solar system continues.

    He believes "technological" aliens roamed several planets — including ancient Earth.

    The Pennsylvania State professor concluded that if aliens did exist before humans, they could have left undiscovered evidence beneath the surface of Mars or in orbit in other solar systems.

    "Prior indigenous technological species may have existed in the Solar System

    Professor Jason Wright

    His paper, entitled Prior Indigenous Technological Species, explores the possibility of pre-existing life in space.

    And he believes Earth would have been the most likely planet for aliens to call home.

    Professor Wright wrote: "Ancient Venus would have had a much thinner atmosphere when the Sun
    was significantly fainter, and the surface may have been habitable.

    "After Earth, it is thus also perhaps the most likely host for a prior indigenous technological species.

    NEW THEORY: Aliens could have existed on Earth before humans

    "Next, the icy moons, and even the asteroids, make obvious sites where an intelligent species may have arisen."

    His work comes as NASA begins to identify the landing spots on Mars for the 2022 Red Planet mission.

    The space agency is evaluating three areas it believes are most likely to contain evidence of aliens.

    Professor Wright said finding technosignatures on Mars could be the key to proving aliens existed before humans.

    He wrote: "Prior indigenous technological species may have existed in the Solar System.

    "Given the signatures humanity’s technology has already imprinted on our future geological record, we might expect such a prior species on Earth to have made a similar impact.

    "It also may be that any such species that arose on Earth or Venus have left no trace that we can ever discover in situ."

    Watch the triangle-shaped UFO over Exmouth which gave stunned wedding groom a trip


    An Exmouth bus driver claims to have captured raw footage of a UFO, while planning his wedding over the phone with his best man.

    It's the latest example of Exe Estuary-Terrestrial activity, with the seaside town proving a popular spot for little green men.

    Residents have registered several claimed sightings of UFO's in recent months.

    Now a bus driver has spotted the unusual display on April 17 at 9.40pm, and said he felt an experience of elation akin to "an LSD trip."


    Return to Devon Live home page or read next: Stay-away warning for Exmouth beach after dangerous sinkhole opens up


    In a published witness testimony on UFO sightings website MUFON, he said: "While I was talking I was near the leisure centre where my bus stops.

    "When I looked randomly over in the direction of the river which is when i saw the three lights in a triangle pattern rotating on its axis and wobbling slightly.

    "I knew instantly that this is not normal and, as I have been interested in the subject of UFOs since I was about 10, I told my mate I'd ring him back and started filming the lights with my phone.

    "During the event I felt elation and joy. The only way I can describe it was the feeling MDNA or ectasy gives you. It felt exactly like a massive endorfin rush. I was bouncing around like an excited child.

    "In total I talked to about 10 people who saw what I did, with one old gentleman who got on my bus who thought he'd just drunk to much. 

    "The morning after I looked more carefully at the photos I had taken, and in one there are shapes inside the lights with two out of the three most visible and identical to the other."

    The bus driver's experience with a supposed UFO certainly isn't the first for the seaside town, which has become a hotbed of sightings.

    Tyron Osbourne, 52, was shocked by soaring oval in December last year, and managed to take photographs over his Brixington home.

    The object appeared at around 1pm and remained in the sky until around 4.30pm. Those who saw it claim the object, and even its trail, then completely vanished.

    Tyron explains: "It looked like a star close to the horizon, and by the time I set up my tripod I could see it was an object. Even the trail behind it did not seem normal.

    "If you look closely you can see what appears to be windows.

    "I have never seen anything like this. As for believing in aliens, I've always thought we are not alone in the universe and hoped to see something that would make me believe they would visit us.

    "I didn't expect it to actually happen."

    The object traveled eastward from Dawlish, leaving Tyron to speculate it may have crossed the Atlantic from the U.S.A.

    Tyron added: "These pictures can, and do, tell a million stories."

    In September last year triangle shaped lights over Phear Park left several residents baffled.

    A resident said he was having a cigarette in his garden when he saw the two triangles followed by what he believed to be a helicopter.

    Another resident who wishes to remain anonymous said: "I believe I have seen the same thing. On hearing the sound of a helicopter I looked out to see if it was another police chopper.

    "I am a serving soldier and I can say I've never seen anything move in the way these objects were."

    Le récit de 9 lumières mystérieuses apparues dans le ciel

    Le récit de 9 lumières mystérieuses apparues dans le ciel

    Le manque d’informations entourant une série de lumières apparues dans les États de Californie, du Nevada et de l’Arizona, avait déclenché un nombre important d’appels aux autorités. L’activité sur les réseaux sociaux s’est envolée à mesure que des témoins publiaient des photos et des vidéos du ciel illuminé. Beaucoup de personnes pensaient – ou espéraient – y voir un OVNI ou objet volant non identifié.

    1. Test de missile effectué par la marine américaine

    En réalité, c’était la marine américaine qui avait tiré un missile Trident non-armé à partir du sous-marin USS Kentucky. Le sous-marin équipé de missiles balistiques voguait au large des côtes du sud de la Californie. Le commandant Ryan Perry a déclaré que de tels lancements étaient effectués sur une base régulière afin de garantir la fiabilité permanente du système et que les informations afférentes étaient classées avant les lancements.

    Test de missile effectué par la marine américaine

    Le lancement avait été mené dans la zone de test du Pacific, une vaste région au nord-ouest de Los Angeles, où la marine teste périodiquement les missiles de croisière Standards et les missiles Tomahawk. Ceux-ci sont tirés à partir de navires de surface et des sous-marins.

    Voici d’autres exemples de ces lumières dans le ciel.

    2. La Bataille de Los Angeles aux États-Unis

    Pour beaucoup de personnes, la bataille de Los Angeles est encore aujourd’hui l’un des rares phénomènes d’OVNI, resté « inexpliqué ».

    3. Le miracle du soleil au Portugal

     4. Les cristaux de glace en Lettonie

    L’image ci-dessus, montre de mystérieuses colonnes de lumière dans le ciel de Sigulda, une ville de Lettonie à la fin décembre 2008.

    5. Des lumières aériennes aux États-Unis

    Le bureau de NBC News à San Diego (États-Unis) avait reçu plusieurs appels téléphoniques le 28 avril 2015. Ces appelants voulaient obtenir des informations sur un regroupement inhabituel et coloré de lumières dans le ciel, au dessus de San Ysidro, près de la frontière mexicaine.

    « Certaines personnes ont signalé des lumières rouges, bleues et vertes, clignotantes et changeant de couleur. Pour d’autres, les lumières étaient statiques, comme celles d’un avion ou d’un drone », selon les documents de NBC 7 San Diego. « Nous avons contacté l’armée locale, pour identifier des objets. Nous n’avons jusqu’ici reçu aucune réponse ».

    Lorsque des chercheurs en OVNIS et The Huffington Post ont appelé la station pour avoir plus d’informations, tout d’un coup c’était motus et bouche cousue.

    Alejandro Rojas, journaliste d’investigation pour OpenMinds.tv pense avoir une explication : « Les lumières brillantes peuvent parfois se refléter dans les lentilles des caméras. En particulier, une lumière émise au sommet d’une tour peut par exemple être perçue au sol comme clignotante. Une des lumières rouges vue dans le ciel clignotait de la sorte. Cependant, les deux lumières ne clignotent pas de manière synchronisées ».

    6. Les nuages iridescents du Costa Rica

    Au Costa Rica, des résidents stupéfaits et fascinés, ont pu admirer dans leur ciel, un nuage irisé à taches multiples. En septembre 2015, le spectacle avait été signalé dans de nombreuses villes, dont San Jose, Parrita, Pavas, Escazu et Hatillo. Les experts expliquent cette étonnante vision par un phénomène météorologique rare, appelé iridescence du nuage, qui se produit lorsque la lumière du soleil diffracte dans les gouttelettes d’eau dans la haute atmosphère.

    7. Les lumières de Hessdalen en Norvège

    Les lumières de Hessdalen sont régulièrement observées au-dessus de la vallée de Hessdalen dans la municipalité de Holtålen dans le comté de Sør-Trøndelag, en Norvège. Contrairement à d’autres « lumières fantômes », elles ne peuvent se réduire à l’explication de phares ou d’avions de passage. Ces lumières adoptent différentes formes, dont certaines ressemblent à des hélices. Elles prennent parfois la forme de boules grossières, qui crachent des boules plus petites, qui s’agrandissent dans le ciel.

    8. La spirale céleste en Norvège

    En 2009, en Norvège de nombreuses personnes étaient en panique à cause de l’étrange observation ci-dessus. Cette inquiétante spirale géante a été observée, photographiée et enregistrée sur vidéo partout dans le pays. Ne serait-ce pas une porte vers un univers parallèle ?

    Pas vraiment. C’était une fusée, qui suite à un manque de carburant, était devenu incontrôlable et tournoyaient dans le ciel. Le ministère russe de la Défense avait confirmé avoir lancé un missile Bulava, mais que le troisième étage du missile a eu un raté. La buse du troisième étage, qui dirige la structure d’échappement des gaz de la fusée, s’est peut être détachée ou a été percé, provoquant l’échappement sur le côté au lieu de l’arrière.

    9. Les pluies de météorites Taurides au Canada

    En novembre 2015, tous les habitant de Saskatchewan ont été surpris par une étrange boule de feu qui a traversé le ciel, accompagnée de gros boums.

    C’était une météorite Tauride qui a tout illuminé et était visible de Saskatoon au Weyburn. Pour Martin Beech, astronome au Collège Campion de l’Université de Regina, il y a de forte chance que des fragments ou des matériaux de la météorite soient arrivés au sol, mais il est difficile d’en préciser la quantité. Le fait que des gens aient entendu des booms dans la région de Kelvington pourrait indiquer que des fragments aient atterri dans les alentours. « Tous ces éléments indiquent que des matériaux ont atteint la plus basse atmosphère », a confirmé Beech. « L’essentiel des matériaux s’est certainement consumé dans la haute atmosphère, d’où la trainée et le flash, aperçues par la population  ».

    Mystery Shape Discovered In Antarctica On Google Maps

    ufo-base

    UFO enthusiasts describe the object as a large body of ice.

    Some people believe it is just an iceberg, but UFO researchers argue that the strange shape could not be a mere iceberg as the mysterious object does not fit with the shapes of the iceberg. They explain that iceberg could be tabular or non-tabular and the object cannot be classified with either shape.

    Several others said that the object is a vessel trying to disguise as an iceberg.

    The ISS captures footage of MYSTERY objects above Earth—Scientists confused

    ESA astronaut Thomas Pesquet captured a series of strange moving objects above Earth while orbiting our planet above California aboard the International Space Station on April 17, 2017. The giveaway is the fact that the lights are not tumbling, which indicates they are actively controlled.
     
    Thomas Pesquet 

    Did Pesquet just film UFOs flying over our planet?
     
    The video filmed by Pesquet was initially intended to record an electric storm near the horizon, just above the western US.
     
    At 25 frames per second of video, the flashes in the atmosphere produced by the rays are perfectly appreciable from the orbital complex. The view is beyond fascinating.
     
    However, moments later the video records the dizzying presence of two objects moving at high speed above the Earth. The ESA Space Debris Bureau later confirmed that “they are consistent with intact objects, and were most likely satellites in operation.”
     
    However, scientists were unable to confirm which satellites—if they were satellite at all—were captured in the video.
     
    As noted by spcae.com, “ESA’s Space Debris Office determined that the objects are most likely not space junk, because “the objects’ brightness in the video is consistent with intact objects,” officials said. And they’re probably not meteors, either, said Detlef Koschny, a scientist in ESA’s Space Situational Awareness Program office who studies near-Earth objects.”
     
    The giveaway is the fact that the lights are not tumbling, which indicates they are actively controlled,ESA communications officer Daniel Scuka said space.com in an email.
     
    Furthermore, experts revealed that the objects were most likely not meteors.  Koschny further explained that a bright meteor, traveling in the atmosphere usually lasts a second or less. Larger objects may remain visible for 2 to 3 seconds.
     
    However, the video filmed by Pesquet was captured at 25 frames per second, meaning the objects are bright for several tens of seconds.
     
    here’s the video:

    FOUND AFTER TWO YEARS: LOST WEATHER BALLOON GOPRO WITH ASTOUNDING FOOTAGE FROM SPACE

    In June 2013 five friends decided to go out into Arizona and take some footage of space when they attached their GoPro recorder to a weather balloon and sent it up into the sky. This was the last they saw of it for two years and when it returned it was worth the wait as it gave them some amazing shots of Earth it had taken from space. 
     
     
    STUDENTS GOT FAA APPROVAL TO LAUNCH NEAR TO TUBA CITY
     
    College students and friends Bryan Chan, Ashish Goel, Ved Chirayath, Paul Tarantino and Tyler Reid decided to build a device and calculated the trajectory of it then registered it with the FAA so that it wouldn’t interfere with any aircraft that might be passing. The balloon carried a GoPro Hero3, Sony camcorder and Samsung Galaxy Note II smartphone, with the two camera recording footage and the smartphone taking the photos. They finally decided to launch the balloon out in the desert just a few miles from Tuba City. 
     
     
    The group wanted to track the progress of their balloon via GPS that was on a smartphone; however, they lost contact with the location once the device and balloon went out of range of the cell phone tower. This left them wondering for many months, if they would ever see the balloon ever again or if they would get their cameras back from the balloon. 
     
    HIKER FOUND BALLOON AND EQUIPMENT TWO YEARS LATER 
     
    The group waited and waited and then gave up on the idea of ever seeing it again. However, two years later they did get to see the results from their project when they received a call from a hiker. The hiker had been out in Arizona and had come across a box with the names of the group on it, around 50 miles from where they originally launched the balloon. 
     
     
    The team had hoped that the balloon would have captured what they thought would be the money shot, the Grand Canyon photographed from the stratosphere. They processed the data taken from the device that had been attached to the balloon and found out that it had reached 98, 664 feet and had a flight time of 1 hour and 38 minutes in total. 
     
     
    The footage they managed to get from the camera was more than they had hoped to get and they managed to retrieve all of the original images and made a 4-minute video that offers a look behind the scenes of their incredible story.

    OFFICIALLY CONFIRMED: NASA AND ESA TO LAND ON EUROPA TO LOOK FOR ALIEN LIFE

    Europa, one of the moons of Jupiter, has long been considered to be the best candidate for life outside Earth within this solar system. Europa is believed to have a deep, underground ocean which contains more water than all of the oceans on Earth combined which make it a prime spot for investigation. 
     
    However, visiting this icy moon in order to extract samples and learn more about its atmospheric composition has proved to be a daunting task. It is so daunting, in fact, that NASA has decided that it is one that they simply cannot undertake alone.
     
     NASA ASKS ESA TO HELP THEM EXPLORE EUROPA 
     
     
    In order to ensure that Europa doesn’t remain virgin territory for space exploration in the near future, NASA has made overtures to the ESA for the two agencies to collaborate in a joint expedition to the moon. In the proposal, referred to as the Joint Europa Mission (JEM) was unveiled this Sunday in the Austrian capital city of Vienna at the annual meeting of the European Geosciences Union. 
     
    Representatives from NASA proposed that the two agencies combine resources and technology in order to make the mission together and the proposal was met with some enthusiasm. “The whole idea is that if we think exploring Europa for life is important, it should be an international venture.”
     
     The plan put forward by NASA is that JEM would launch in the mid-2020s and would run for approximately six and a half years. When the lander reaches the surface of Europa it will explore for a little over a month, primarily scanning materials for any traces of life. Simultaneously, an orbiter craft would spend three months taking measurements of the moon in order to provide information about Europa’s structure with particular emphasis on the composition of the underground ocean. 
     
    At this current time, there are clear signs that representatives from both of the space agencies are very keen to go ahead with this exciting joint venture. There have even been suggestions that if the mission is a success that there could be follow-up collaborative efforts to explore the other moons of Jupiter and neighboring gas giant Saturn which is considered to be good candidates for life. However, nothing can go ahead on this project until it is given the full approval of President Donald Trump who has ultimate oversight over the activities of the American space agency.

    Evidence of advanced ancient civilizations on Earth—over 100,000 years ago?

    The idea that advanced ancient civilizations existed on Earth in the distant past has captured the interest of authors, historians, and archaeologists across the globe. Every once in a while, experts make discoveries that completely change everything we know about history. What if, in the distant past—as far as 100,000 years ago—Earth was inhabited by civilizations that were completely different from what we are today?
     
    Do you believe that Intelligent civilizations lived on Earth over 100,000 years ago? Many controversial discoveries point to the possibility that hundreds of thousands of years ago, advanced civilizations roamed our planet. What do we really know about history and the past of the human race? Has mankind been on planet Earth only a couple of thousands of years as mainstream researchers suggest?
     
    Or is it possible that advanced ancient civilizations inhabited our planet hundreds of thousands of years ago? Recently, several discoveries seem to point to that possibility.
     
    Why mainstream researchers opted to ‘ignore’ details and clues which point towards the existence of civilizations that are much older than we previously believed is still an enigma for a lot of people. Evidence of civilizations that inhabited our planet ‘before recorded history’ can be found in all corners of the world. In Ancient Egypt, Mesoamerica and Sumeria we find written texts that speak of great civilizations, great rulers, and a ‘golden age’ that lasted for thousands of years.

    Let’s take a trip to Africa, there, we will find evidence of a major ancient settlement that predates our entire history.
     
    Intelligent civilizations inhabited Africa over 100,000 years ago
     
     
    Around 150 km west of port Maputo, we find the remains of a huge metropolis that measures, according to initial studies, around 1500 square kilometers. This ancient city is according to researchers, part of an even larger community with about 10,000 square kilometers, believed to have been constructed between 160,000 to 200,000 years before Christ.
     
    The surrounding geology is interesting due to numerous gold mines located in the vicinity. Researchers have proposed that a missing civilization from the distant past, could have lived and proposed in that part of the world while mining gold.
     
    Researchers point to the Ancient Anunnaki.
     
     
    Lost civilizations in the Amazon?
     
    Is this another civilization that predates the Inca and their ancestors? No one could have imagined that somewhere, in the remote areas of the Amazon, a lost civilizations would be found.
     
    Rapid deforestation in combination with Google Earth has allowed the detection of 210 geoglyphs in 200 different site sites, in a strip of 250 kilometers by 10 kilometers in the Amazon. Just like the Nazca lines, the incredible geometric, zoomorphic and anthropomorphic designs of the Amazon can only be truly appreciated from the air. The question remains, why?
     
    The question remains, why?
     
    Numerous remains of what is obviously part of an ancient and hitherto unknown civilization have appeared under the trees of the Amazonian rainforest. According to researchers, 260 huge avenues, long irrigation canals, and fences for livestock have been spotted from the air. The discovery was made in the vicinity of the border between Bolivia and Brazil.
     
    The lost pyramids of the Amazon: Traces of a prehistoric civilization!
     
     
    In the tangled and dense jungles of the Amazon, there are numerous mysteries that could probably help us understand how ancient civilizations lived in the distant past.
     
    Even thought that several researchers believe that the Pyramids of Paratoari are truncated ridge spurs, which can take the form of natural pyramids, there are many other researchers who firmly believe that these structures were built in the distant past by a civilization that completely been ignored by mainstream history
     
    Excursions to the region found plenty of evidence of Incan inhabitance in the area, such as petroglyphs, paved roads, and platforms.
     
    The mysterious pyramidal structures were first identified via NASA satellite photograph number C-S11-32W071-03, released in 1976. The images caused numerous researchers to venture to the Manu area of dense tropical rain forest in southeast Peru in hopes to find out whether these structures were actually built by an ancient civilization, lost in time.
     
    The Sphinx, an 800,000-year-old monument?
     
     
    One of the most mysterious and enigmatic monuments on the surface of the planet is without a doubt the Great Sphinx at the Giza plateau in Egypt. It is an ancient construction that has baffled researchers ever since its discovery and until today, no one has been able to accurately date the Sphinx, since there are no written records or mentions in the past about it. Now, two Ukrainian researchers have proposed a new provocative theory where the two scientists propose that the Great Sphinx of Egypt is around 800,000 years old. A Revolutionary theory that is backed up by science.
     
    The study was presented at the International Conference of Geoarchaeology and Archaeomineralogy held in Sofia titled: GEOLOGICAL ASPECT OF THE PROBLEM OF DATING THE GREAT EGYPTIAN SPHINX CONSTRUCTION.
     
    The authors of this paper are scientists Manichev Vjacheslav I. (Institute of Environmental Geochemistry of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine) and Alexander G. Parkhomenko (Institute of Geography of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine).
     
    The starting point of these two experts is the paradigm shift initiated by West and Schoch, a ‘debate’ intended to overcome the orthodox view of Egyptology referring to the possible remote origins of the Egyptian civilization and, on the other, physical evidence of water erosion present at the monuments of the Giza Plateau.
     
    The truth is that we have very little knowledge when it comes to the origins of live and modern civilization.
     
    In a recently published study, experts concluded that DIFFERENT ‘Complex’ life forms may have once existed on Earth before our species came into existence.
     
    This research shows that there was enough oxygen in the environment to have allowed complex cells to have evolved…
     
    According to scientists, we are not the FIRST complex life forms on planet Earth. In fact, another complex life form existed once but disappeared at some point during Earth’s long history. Then, after a while, complex life forms reappeared.
     
    Mainstream scholars agree that given our ‘current’ knowledge of Earth’s history, complex life appeared on our planet at least some 1.75 BILLION years ago.
     
    So, if complex life could have existed on Earth in the distant past, why is it so improbable and unlikely that advanced civilizations flourished on Earth?
     
    Curiously, according to Jason Wright, assistant professor of astrophysics and astronomy of the Pennsylvania State University ‘technological’ alien civilizations may have once lived on one of the planets in our solar system, and eventually disappeared without a trace.
     
    In a study titled ‘Prior Indigenous Technological Species’, Professor Wright proposes that ancient aliens may have even lived on either Mars, Venus or Earth.
     
    The scientific paper—which has been published in arXiv—states: A prior indigenous technological species might have arisen on ancient Earth or another body, such as a pre-greenhouse Venus or a wet Mars.
     
    However, if these advanced alien civilizations existed in our solar system—perhaps even Earth—most evidence of their existence is probably gone by now.

    In the tangled and dense jungles of the Amazon, there are numerous mysteries that could probably help us understand how ancient civilizations lived in the distant past.
     
    Even thought that several researchers believe that the Pyramids of Paratoari are truncated ridge spurs, which can take the form of natural pyramids, there are many other researchers who firmly believe that these structures were built in the distant past by a civilization that completely been ignored by mainstream history
     
    Excursions to the region found plenty of evidence of Incan inhabitance in the area, such as petroglyphs, paved roads, and platforms.
     
    The mysterious pyramidal structures were first identified via NASA satellite photograph number C-S11-32W071-03, released in 1976. The images caused numerous researchers to venture to the Manu area of dense tropical rain forest in southeast Peru in hopes to find out whether these structures were actually built by an ancient civilization, lost in time.
     
    The Sphinx, an 800,000-year-old monument?
     
     
    One of the most mysterious and enigmatic monuments on the surface of the planet is without a doubt the Great Sphinx at the Giza plateau in Egypt. It is an ancient construction that has baffled researchers ever since its discovery and until today, no one has been able to accurately date the Sphinx, since there are no written records or mentions in the past about it. Now, two Ukrainian researchers have proposed a new provocative theory where the two scientists propose that the Great Sphinx of Egypt is around 800,000 years old. A Revolutionary theory that is backed up by science.
     
    The study was presented at the International Conference of Geoarchaeology and Archaeomineralogy held in Sofia titled: GEOLOGICAL ASPECT OF THE PROBLEM OF DATING THE GREAT EGYPTIAN SPHINX CONSTRUCTION.
     
    The authors of this paper are scientists Manichev Vjacheslav I. (Institute of Environmental Geochemistry of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine) and Alexander G. Parkhomenko (Institute of Geography of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine).
     
    The starting point of these two experts is the paradigm shift initiated by West and Schoch, a ‘debate’ intended to overcome the orthodox view of Egyptology referring to the possible remote origins of the Egyptian civilization and, on the other, physical evidence of water erosion present at the monuments of the Giza Plateau.
     
    The truth is that we have very little knowledge when it comes to the origins of live and modern civilization.
     
    In a recently published study, experts concluded that DIFFERENT ‘Complex’ life forms may have once existed on Earth before our species came into existence.
     
    This research shows that there was enough oxygen in the environment to have allowed complex cells to have evolved…
     
    According to scientists, we are not the FIRST complex life forms on planet Earth. In fact, another complex life form existed once but disappeared at some point during Earth’s long history. Then, after a while, complex life forms reappeared.
     
    Mainstream scholars agree that given our ‘current’ knowledge of Earth’s history, complex life appeared on our planet at least some 1.75 BILLION years ago.
     
    So, if complex life could have existed on Earth in the distant past, why is it so improbable and unlikely that advanced civilizations flourished on Earth?
     
    Curiously, according to Jason Wright, assistant professor of astrophysics and astronomy of the Pennsylvania State University ‘technological’ alien civilizations may have once lived on one of the planets in our solar system, and eventually disappeared without a trace.
     
    In a study titled ‘Prior Indigenous Technological Species’, Professor Wright proposes that ancient aliens may have even lived on either Mars, Venus or Earth.
     
    The scientific paper—which has been published in arXiv—states: A prior indigenous technological species might have arisen on ancient Earth or another body, such as a pre-greenhouse Venus or a wet Mars.
     
    However, if these advanced alien civilizations existed in our solar system—perhaps even Earth—most evidence of their existence is probably gone by now.

    ANCIENT CITY RUINS DISCOVERED ON THE SURFACE OF MARS

    Mars has given us a lot to think about over the last two years that its hard to put all of this together. 
     
    From a distant planet and denuded, Mars has proven that it is more interesting than we had never thought of before. 
     
    Mars is about half of the diameter of the Earth with a surface is slightly less than the total area of the dry land. Mars is less dense than the earth, having approximately 15 per cent of the volume and 11 per cent of the land mass, resulting in approximately 38 per cent of the surface of the earth gravity. 
     
    But Mars is very similar to the earth in many ways. The experts have proven that the Red Planet was once remarkably similar to the earth, having an atmosphere, lakes, rivers, and oceans covering its surface. 
     
    Not long ago, NASA has revealed that Mars could have supported the life as we know it but everything changes when the red planet has lost its atmosphere. 
     
    According to scientists, the slow destruction of the atmosphere of the planet in our neighbor has been caused by "enormous rope-like tendrils of magnetic rotation. The Red Planet once the hospital atmosphere has been dazzled in a distant past. This means that when Mars was much younger, it was much more hot and humid, which means that it has been a very good candidate for the life to develop. Scientists believe that oceans of Mars have evaporated due to the thinning of the planet atmosphere that fact flees in space. 
     
    Although Mars has no evidence of a global magnetic field, the observations show that parts of the crust of the planet have been magnetized, suggesting that the alternation of the polarity of son dipole field have taken place in the past. 
     
    However, there are more things on Mars which have caused confusion among the experts. The exploration of Mars rovers of NASA has noticed the quantity of readings of methane at the surface of the Red Planet. On Earth, 90 per cent of the whole of the methane in the atmosphere is produced by living organisms. Traces of methane captured the Curiosity on the red planet, and the scientists believe that this could point to the existence of life on the red planet, at this precise moment, although there are other possible explanations. 
     
    But while Mars may not have life on its surface, many scientists claim that in the distant past, the Red Planet has perhaps taken in charge of the life and not only primitive life, but of complex life forms developed countries who have perhaps even the structures built on its surface.
     
     One of these researchers is Dr. John A plasma physicist who has obtained his diploma at the University of California at Davis and which apparently has had a brilliant career as a scientist submits that the Martian life has been deliberately destroyed with nukes. 
     
    In a scientific article, Dr. Brandenburg says: That Mars present, "… based on new data, the evidence that during this period of Earthlike climate, biological evolution product, to length, a humanoid civilization leaving ruins at several sites, Cydonia Mensa and Galaxias Chaos being two sites more intensively studied. The data from these sites has formed the basis of the hypothesis Cydonia (Brandenburg, DiPietro and Molenaar, 1991) of a former, indigenous populations, about the civilization of the Bronze Age on March." 
     
    And, curiously, each day of new images of Mars prove that there is something strange on its surface. Over the past two years, countless images of Mars were analyzed by foreign hunters across the world. Some of them --show awkwardly which seems to be artificially structured on the surface of the Red Planet. 
     
    All jokes aside, a part of the substance found in Mars that makes you think "that if in a certain way, the life on Mars developed millions of years ago, and has finally disappeared?" 
     
    Would it not find traces of this life today? 
     
    Exposed beams in return images to be able to participate Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter show a zone on the surface of Mars covered with small "structures."
     
     Be able to participate in the catch of many images in MRO in form

    Mysterious Native Creature of Antarctica Kills Scientists (VIDEO)

    Russian scientists have made a new borehole into Lake Vostok, the prehistoric Antarctic water mass, which has been sealed for millions of years – three years after a previous mission was prematurely ended by an accident resulting in sample contamination.
     
    Now a defecting Russian scientist had surfaced with a mind-bending account of what REALLY occurred when he and his colleagues went missing for five days in a mysterious lake 12,366 feet beneath the Antarctic ice.
     
    Lake Vostok is the largest of Antarctica’s almost 400 known subglacial lakes. Lake Vostok is located at the southern Pole of Cold, beneath Russia’s Vostok Station under the surface of the central East Antarctic Ice Sheet, which is at 3,488 m (11,444 ft) above mean sea level.
     
    The surface of this fresh water lake is approximately 4,000 m (13,100 ft) under the surface of the ice, which places it at approximately 500 m (1,600 ft) below sea level.

    Evidence of a ‘Top-Secret’ space program? Air force’s mystery X-37B space plane now 700 days in space

    The mysterious X-37B is a reusable unmanned spacecraft. It is considered as one of the most mysterious and advanced spacecraft ever operated by the United States Military. The enigmatic space vehicle has reached 700 days in space and no one knows its exact purpose. Experts argue that the X-37B could be used as a spy satellite or to deliver weapons from space, others believe it is part of a secretive space program operated by a shadow government.
     
    One of the most mysterious—known—spacecraft to ever be flown into space is without a doubt the Air Force X-37B spacecraft which reached a staggering 700 days in space.
     
    No one knows what its true purpose is and what exactly its doing while it orbits Earth. However, numerous ufologists and conspiracy theorists argue that the X-37b is just one of the many secret spacecraft that belong to a ‘secret space fleet’ operated by the governemnt. It’s the tip of the iceberg some have said.
     
     
    If it is indeed SECRET, it’s not the best-kept secret since there is some information about it. The X-37b is also known as the Orbital Test Vehicle 4. It carries a mysterious payload that is its biggest secret.
     
    Some argue that it’s a next level space-bomber, while others believe it’s specifically designed to take out space weapons. In May 2010, Tom Burghardt wrote for Space Daily that the X-37B could be used as a spy satellite or to deliver weapons from space.
     
    The X-37 began as a NASA project in 1999, before being transferred to the U.S. Department of Defense in 2004
     
    Previously, the X-37b’s record in space was 674 days which lasted from December 2012 to October 2014.
     
     
    The secret space plane is known to have used the Vandenberg Air Force Base in California for landing. According to space.com, recent plans to consolidate launch and landing activities could mean vehicles touch down at the Shuttle Landing Facility at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center.
     
    However, where exactly and when the mystery spacecraft will return to Earth is a mystery just as its true mission.
     
    According to Captain Annmarie Annicelli, an Air Force Spokeswoman: “The landing date will be determined based on the completion of the program’s on-orbit demonstrations and objectives for this mission. While the program has the capability to land at either KSC or Vandenberg, the landing location is determined by a variety of factors,” reports space.com.
     
     
    The enigmatic space vehicle was built and designed by the Air Force and was launched into space atop a United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket on May 20, 2015.
     
    It is considered as one of the most mysterious and advanced spacecraft ever operated by the United States Military.
     
    The enigmatic spacecraft is designed to orbit our planet—following a specific mission—and is built to land like one of NASA’s now-retired shuttles.
     
    The Spacecraft was put together by Boeing. The X-37b orbits our planet in low-earth orbit, between 110 (177km) and 500 miles (800km) above Earth. The ISS—by comparison—circles our plant at around 220 miles (350km) above Earth. The X-37b has an orbital speed of 28,044 km/h (17,426 mph).
     
    Furthermore, while no one really knows what the contents of the X-37b’s payload are, NASA has revealed it features a materials experiment aboard, while the Planetary Society is tagging along with a solar-sail demo.
     
    The solar sail demo—called LightSail—uses a propulsion system that acquires photons from the sun, commonly referred to as Solar Sailing. According to the Daily Mail, nine other CubeSat nano-satellites are also taking a piggyback ride into orbit.  The space plane – one of two of the same design – is operated robotically, without anyone on board, and is reusable.

    Q&A with Erie UFO conference speaker Nick Pope

    The author and UFO expert shares his experiences working with the British Ministry of Defence, “X-Files” and his presentation at Saturday’s Mutual UFO Network event.
     
    Ever wonder if there’s any truth behind the “The X-Files” and other sci-fi shows?
     
    They might not be as far-fetched as you think, according to UFO expert Nick Pope. The former British Ministry of Defence employee, dubbed “the real Fox Mulder,” worked in the government’s UFO program from 1991 to 1994, investigating UFO sightings and other unexplained phenomena. Now the author, TV personality and sci-fi media consultant wades deep in the world of the unexplained, and will present at the fifth Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) Erie Conference on Saturday at the Bayfront Convention Center.
     
    But conferences like the one in Erie aren’t just for those who believe in the extraterrestrial.
     
    “This should not be something just for the believers,” said Pope, 51, who left the MOD in 2006 and has lived in the United States for the past five years. “I would love to see skeptics there, too, and people who are agnostic about it. I hope people will come, wherever they are on the belief spectrum.”
     
    He recently answered a few questions about his former post at the Ministry of Defence, “The X-Files” and his upcoming presentation at Saturday’s conference.
     
    What put you on the path to investigating UFO sightings and other claims for the Ministry of Defence?
     
    “I was a civilian employee of the Ministry of Defence, but like military and a number of these government organizations, you get moved around every few years — either on level transfer or promotion. And I was lucky enough for three years in that wider 21-year career to be assigned to their UFO project. I didn’t have a prior interest in the subject. I had no belief in it. It was simply ‘this is the next posting that we’d like to put you in.’ So it came up really from the personnel department and I embarked on this remarkable journey.”
     
    Did that help you to be objective or skeptical about claims you were investigating?
     
    “I don’t think you want a true believer in that job. I’m not sure you would want a die-hard debunker, either. These investigative jobs are best if you go in with a neutral, dispassionate view and you simply go the way the data take you. We got about 200 or 300 cases each year, and I went into each one with an open mind and just thought ‘I will do my best to investigate this and see what I can turn up.’ I did not regard it — and it was not ever my mission — to prove any of these things were extraterrestrial spacecraft. Neither, contrary to what conspiracy theorists say, was it my job to really debunk them, either. I just had to say ‘Look, we’ve had a report of something in our airspace. Obviously the air force and government want to know what this is. Let’s see if we can’t find out.’”
     
    Were you mostly investigating UFO sightings, or were you also involved with cases of other unexplained phenomena?
     
    “Most of the job involved UFO sightings, but it was impossible to do that job without finding yourself the kind of clearinghouse, as it were, out of the ordinary. We were the part of government that got reports, not just of UFOs, but through that, alien abductions, crop circles, people who thought they had seen ghosts on military bases. We were kind of dubbed by the media as ‘the real, live “X-Files” unit.’”
     
    Are you a fan of “X-Files”?
     
    “I am, actually, yes! It was — and still is, hopefully — a great, great series. Just beautifully written and acted. I was a fan before I was approached to get involved. I do consultancy and spokesperson work (for) a lot of alien-themed movies, TV shows and video games, and I was brought in on the second ‘X-Files’ movie and on the reboot of the TV series to do some interviews to say to the media and public ‘Is any of this real?’ And of course, the answer is yes, actually they do.”
     
    What will your Saturday lecture, “Secrecy vs. Disclosure,” entail?
     
    “The UFO community are, I think, always talking about disclosure with a big ‘D.’ They have this image that it’s going to be some big, formal announcement where the president speaks live to the nation and says ‘We’re not alone.’ It may not be quite as simple as that. And actually one of the great secrets, I think, is that government doesn’t really know, either, in relation to UFOs. Certainly we in the UK never had any spaceships hidden away in air force hangars, any of that sort of thing — although we were always accused of having that evidence and keeping it back. Hand-on-heart, we didn’t. But my point is more generally, if there was this great secret, could that secret even be kept these days? As much as people believe in Big Brother and the secret state, I’m going to argue that perhaps the balance of power is shifting more toward the individual, therefore more toward a situation where states find it more difficult to keep secrets. There’s espionage, which we’ve always had, but whistle-blower culture seems to be expanding.
     
    “I’m going to talk about how difficult it would be to keep a secret, but then the other thing is, I’m going to be speculative, and I’m going to say if this is true, if government does act as guardian of this great secret, why wouldn’t it be told? What might be the advantages of disclosing this information, but what might be the disadvantages? We’re going to look at all the cliches — would there be panic in the streets, would it undermine the international financial system and political institutions? It will be themed on UFOs, but I think that the points I’m making could be made right across the board.”
     
    Are people receptive to that perspective?
     
    “Yes and no. I think I do get a lot of positive feedback, but there’s no getting away from the fact that, to some of these people, I’m probably the bad guy. The fact that I did this for the government means that there are people who think I was part of a conspiracy, that I was part of the cover-up. There are people who believe I’m still secretly on the payroll, that it’s my job to put out disinformation, to infiltrate the UFO community and see what they know, etc., etc. When I expose my skepticism about conspiracy theories, it doesn’t go down well in all quarters. But you know, I’m not a believer that you should just turn up at these conferences and tell people what you think they want to hear. I think a conference is far better if there are a range of views, if things do get a little interesting and spiky, and if we do knock a few ideas back and forward.”
     
    BE THERE
     
    The fifth Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) Erie Conference will take place Saturday, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., at the Bayfront Convention Center, 1 Sassafras Pier.

    NASA: “Mankind is about to discover extraterrestrial life”

    This was stated by the spokesman of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration during one of the last hearings of the Committee for Science, Space and Technology of the United States.
     
    Are you ready for disclosure? Or are you expecting little microorganisms on a distant moon in our solar system?
     
    There are many who claim that unofficially, mankind has already made contact with aliens, and not just little microorganism floating around inside a massive alien ocean, but advanced spacefaring civilizations.
     
    Twenty-five years ago, we didn’t know that planets existed beyond our solar system. Today, we have confirmed the existence of over 3,400 exoplanets that orbit other suns. And we continue to make new discoveries.
     
    Professor Thomas Zurbuchen, associate administrator of the Science Mission Directorate at NASA headquarters in Washington, said our civilization is on the verge of discovering evidence of alien life in the cosmos.
     
    Thomas Zurbuchen
     
    Taking in count all of the different activities and mission that are specifically searching for evidence of alien life, we are on the verge of making one of the most profound, unprecedented discoveries in history, said Zurbuchen during the hearing of the Committee on American Science, Space and Technology.
     
    At the hearing, professor Zurbuchen mentioned all of NASA’s recent achievements in their quest for extraterrestrial life that support his claim.
     
     
     
    “Two weeks ago NASA’s Cassini mission demonstrated the presence of hydrogen in Saturn’s moon Enceladus, while the Hubble team announced the results of the second observation of the oceans of Europa, one of the moons of Jupiter. Both discoveries are potential evidence of life, “said the NASA spokesman, who also highlighted the advances made in astrobiology.
     
    And while we have not yet found definitive signs of life elsewhere, our search is making remarkable progress, said Zurbuchen, who noted that NASA’s number of astrobiology missions is on the rise.
     
    Mars 2020, our next explorer, and will continue to advance this quest by researching a region on Mars where the ancient environment may have been favorable for microbial life. The mission will also look for signs of past life and collect samples that will be brought back to Earth, “said professor Zurbuchen.
     
    Zurbuchen also pointed out that to prove the existence of extraterrestrial life requires the cooperation of several scientific disciplines as a whole, such as biology, geology, astronomy, planetary sciences, Earth sciences and many others.
     
    The NASA Transition Authorization Act of 2017, which President Trump signed into law last month, ensures continued American leadership in astrobiology and the search for life.
     
    It establishes “the search for life’s origin, evolution, distribution, and future in the universe” as a fundamental objective for NASA.  To accomplish this, the bill directs NASA and the National Academies to develop an exoplanet exploration strategy and an astrobiology strategy.
     
    While all of this is great news for space explorations and our hopes—officially—to find alien life, there have been some seriously interesting quotes made in the past related to alien life.
     
    One of our favorite quotes comes from Dr. Brian O’Leary, a former NASA Astronaut, and Princeton Physics Professor:
     
    There is abundant evidence that we are being contacted, that civilizations have been monitoring us for a very long time. That their appearance is bizarre from any type of traditional materialistic western point of view. That these visitors use the technologies of consciousness, they use toroids, they use co-rotating magnetic disks for their propulsion systems, which seems to be a common denominator of the UFO phenomenon.

    Na spectaculaire duik door ringen Saturnus stuurt ruimtesonde Cassini opnieuw signalen naar aarde - HLN.be

    Bron: Belga

    © epa.

    NASA Na een eerste spectaculair duikmanoeuvre door de ringen rond Saturnus heeft de ruimtesonde Cassini opnieuw signalen naar de aarde gestuurd. "We hebben het gedaan! ", twitterde het Amerikaanse ruimtevaartagentschap NASA vandaag. "Cassini staat weer in contact met de aarde en stuurt data terug na een succesvolle duik door het gat tussen Saturnus en diens ringen."

    De ruimtesonde zal nog 21 keer door het nog niet onderzochte gebied vliegen. Bij de start van het manoeuvre gisteren was het contact met de aarde zoals verwacht verbroken. Volgens de NASA heeft de sonde het bovenste wolkendek van Saturnus op 3.000 kilometer genaderd. De afstand tot de binnenste ring bedroeg 300 km.

    NASA noemde de missie de "grote finale". Cassini is in 1997 gelanceerd. De sonde kwam in 2004 in een baan om de planeet. Uiteindelijk zal de sonde gecontroleerd neerstorten op 17 september.

    We did it! Cassini is in contact with Earth and sending back data after a successful dive through the gap between Saturn and its rings.

    The gap between Saturn and its rings is no longer unexplored space – and we're going back 21 times. https://go.nasa.gov/1Up1oba
