    Rendlesham Forest, UFOs, and a Faked Document

    As a (kind of) follow-up to my article on the controversy surrounding Marilyn Monroe, UFOs, and a questionable document, there is the matter of an equally controversial document that concerns the famous December 1980 UFO event at Rendlesham Forest, Suffolk, England. The most widely accepted scenario within the UFO research community is that extraterrestrials landed/manifested in those dark woods in late December. There is talk of a small, intelligently controlled vehicle moving through the trees, of lights beaming down to a weapons-storage area in the vicinity, of bizarre activity in the woods, and of strange, dwarfish entities seen at close quarters.

    Rendlesham Forest alleged UFO landing site

    There is, however, absolutely no doubt at all that this particular document is completely and utterly bogus. I mention it, though, in the event that it might catch your attention and provoke a “WTF?!” response. The document is actually a letter, written on British Ministry of Defense paperwork and is undated. It reads (without interruption) as follows:

    QUOTE: “Dear [Deleted], As you know, OSI has completed a report on the landing of a craft of unknown origin crewed by several entities near RAF Bentwaters on the night of December 29/30 1980. Interestingly, OSI reports that the entities were approximately 1 1/2 metres tall, wore what appeared to be nylon-coated pressure suits, but no helmets. Conditions on the night were misty, giving the appearance that the entities were hovering above ground level.

    “Tape recordings were made on which the entities are heard to speak in an electronically synthesized version of English, with a strong American accent. Similar transmissions intercepted (possible word omitted) irregularly by NSA since 1975. According to OSI, entities had claw-like hands with three digits and an opposable thumb. Despite original reports, OSI said the craft was not damaged but landed deliberately as part of a series of visits to SAC bases in USA and Europe. Reports that craft was repaired by US servicemen or was taken on to the base are not confirmed by OSI.

    “Landing is not considered a Defence issue in view of the overt peaceful nature of the contact, but investigations by DS8 are to be continued on [Deleted] authority. Precautionary plan for counter-information at a local level involving [Deleted] and a [Deleted] is strongly recommended.” END OF QUOTE

    Well, that’s quite a story! But, a story is all it is.

    The document was reproduced in the 1986 paperback edition of a book on the Rendlesham Forest affair titled Sky Crash. The authors were Brenda Butler, Dot Street, and Jenny Randles. In their book, the authors note that the “memo” – sent to the team as a photocopy – was received in early 1984. They added that, “We have investigated it…and our conclusion is that it is a deliberate fake by certain parties, whose identities are strongly suspected by us.” They concluded: “This hoax has clearly been planned to test us or, more likely, to impugn our credibility should we fall for the trick. We call their bluff.”

    I recall how several colleagues in Ufology, in the 1990s, sent copies of the “document” to the British Ministry of Defense, asking for an opinion on it. MoD staff did not avoid commenting on it. They were careful to make it very clear that it was what it really is: a hoax. Ironically, because copies of the document were sent to the MoD for comment, they ended up in the MoD’s “Rendlesham File.” And when, years later, that same “Rendlesham File” was finally declassified, people who accessed it saw the fake document in the file! I know from emails I got at the time, that this created a few issues for people who assumed the document was the real deal! It is, perhaps, for this very reason that I know some people still hang onto the possibility that the document is genuine. But, trust me, it ain’t.

    The Most Interesting Science News Articles of the Week

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

    Archaeologists in England discovered a Neolithic earthwork and burial site that could date back to 2000 B.C.

    A 4,000-year-old henge monument, containing five well-preserved human burials, has been discovered in England, archaeologists announced.

    Archaeologists still debate the purpose and the origin of henges, but researchers know that the earthworks started showing up in the British Isles in the third and early second millennia B.C. Most of these monuments contain no traces of everyday activity, and some feature burials or are aligned with cosmic phenomena. So, some researchers believe henges must have had some sort of ceremonial or ritual significance. [Read more about the henge monument.]

    Stock up on emergency supplies and get those galoshes ready — this year's hurricane season is likely to be a big one.

    This year, there is a 45 percent chance of an above-normal season, a 35 percent chance of a near-normal season and just a 20 percent chance of below-normal activity, NOAA reported. [Read more about the upcoming season.]

    A spot in England where thousands of Viking warriors and their families spent their winter months was bigger than most contemporary English towns.

    "These extraordinary images offer a fascinating snapshot of life at a time of great upheaval in Britain," University of York archaeologist Julian Richards said in a statement. [Read more about the Viking wanderings.]

    The perplexing cosmic object known as "Boyajian's star" is once again exhibiting a mysterious pattern of dimming and brightening that scientists have tried to explain with hypotheses ranging from swarms of comets to alien megastructures.

    The brightness changes exhibited by Boyajian don't show the kind of regularity that is typical of a planet's orbit around its star, and scientists can't see how the changes could be explained by a system of planets. [Read more about the dimming star.]

    A quartet of adorable baby squirrels recently got into quite a sticky predicament.

    Andrew Day saw the ensemble of squirrels hobbling across the grass with their tails fused "like a giant dreadlock, Day told The Bangor Daily News. After capturing a video of the odd scene, Day took the squirrels to a veterinarian, who liberated them. [Read more about the cute squirrels.]

    Alcohol and marijuana may be the most commonly used recreational drugs in the world, but "magic" mushrooms appear to be the safest, a new survey finds.

    The Global Drug Survey is a London-based research group that's focused on making drug use safer. The results of the 2017 survey were published today (May 24) and included responses from more than 115,000 people from 50 countries. [Read more about the ratings.]

    It's a plane, it's a blimp … it's the world's largest aircraft.

    On May 10, the Airlander 10 flew for a total of 180 minutes to test the aircraft's handling, improved landing technology and more, according to Hybrid Air Vehicles. This was only the third flight of the Airlander 10. It first debuted as HAV-304, and successfully flew in 2012 as part of the U.S. Army’s Long Endurance Multi-intelligence Vehicle program. The reimagined and modified Airlander 10 made its maiden voyage in August 2016, kicking off a flight test program to assess the aircraft's performance and attempting to fly the airship farther away from its base in Cardington, England. [Read more about the large craft.]

    A new study finds 52 genes that are related to intelligence — a rousing success in a field that has often struggled to find correlations between smarts and genes.

    These genes "are basically a tip of the iceberg," Posthuma told Live Science. "But there are still a lot more genes that are important for intelligence." [Read more about intelligence genes.]

    A botulism outbreak has killed one man and sickened nine other people who ate nacho cheese sauce contaminated with the toxic bacterial protein. Heath officials traced the outbreak to a gas station in California's Sacramento County.

    The toxin blocks nerve messages, which, in turn, causes people to lose control of their muscles, Chapman told Live Science. For instance, people who have consumed the toxin may have trouble swallowing, droopy eyelids and difficulty breathing, he said. [Read more about the tainted cheese.]

    Mouse sperm preserved on the International Space Station for nine months gave rise to healthy pups, a new study reveals.

    This work also raises the possibility of a "doomsday vault" for sperm in space that could help preserve animal species from disasters on Earth, much as the Global Seed Vault in Svalbard, Norway, does for plant species. The sperm-vault idea is similar to one depicted in a novel by the author of "A Game of Thrones," scientists added. [Read more about the mouse sperm.]

    Should We Try to Colonize Other Worlds or Stay and Fix Earth?

    As NASA continues to make incredible discoveries about nearby exoplanets, or planets outside of our solar system, it’s easy to wonder “what if?”

    What if we made successful manned missions to those planets? What if there was life on any of those planets, and we could make contact? These questions have driven astronomers and science fiction enthusiasts alike for countless years. And, as planning for manned missions to Mars and the search for extraterrestrial life continue, these questions become more relevant than ever.

    However, putting aside all the excitement generated by space exploration, it’s important to ask not only if we can, but if we should. According to acclaimed science fiction writer Kim Stanley Robinson, sending humans to nearby exoplanets would be a terrible idea. To discuss his opinions the best way he knew how, Robinson expressed himself in his 2015 novel “Aurora.” In this book, Robinson imagines a capsule-type human society that takes an extended journey to a nearby star on a large vessel built to sustain human, plant, and animal life for centuries.

    While Robinson’s book was technically science fiction, it wasn’t all that far from reality. Darpa funded the construction of an ark-like vessel similar to Aurora’s ship around the time the book was written. But instead of reinforcing Darpa’s aspirations, Robinson’s tale highlighted the issues that could potentially arise and compound on each other with such lengthy space travel. And, as his narrative illustrates, Robinson believes that these problems would be too great for humans to overcome.

    CLOSE TO HOME

    The challenges the fictional crew on the Aurora face paint a picture of the potential issues with space colonization that are rarely discussed. For example, we can clearly see how climate change is slowly but surely wreaking havoc on our planet. Now, imagine that Earth was a smaller, completely contained vessel in which the emissions and gasses produced had nowhere to escape. Even if the ship launched with environmental systems perfectly equilibrated with each other, any changes that occurred over the hundred years in space would throw multiple systems out of balance.

    As time goes on, this imbalance would only become more severe, and a trip to even the nearest exoplanet could take an extraordinary amount of time. These scientific concerns of imbalance in long-term, artificial environments are in addition to the sociological issues that are bound to arise.

    Terra-forming and space colonization are getting a lot of buzz since NASA announced that a nearby dwarf star named TRAPPIST-1 was discovered with seven surrounding planets, three of which orbit within the “habitable zone.” So, we may be wise to take this discussion about the repercussions of a manned mission to a nearby exoplanet more seriously than we would the latest piece of crazy science fiction. A voyage like this is becoming more and more of a possibility, and it’s important to take a step back and think about obstacles that might not be obvious.

    While it will be temping to bound ahead with interplanetary space travel as soon as it becomes more feasible, we might not want to take the leap too soon. The problems we have on Earth will not disappear when we leave — they will follow us wherever we go. So let us remember even while we work towards a technologically advanced future that just because we can doesn’t always mean that we should.

    HE HIGH FIVE

    Astronomers have long been seeking an Earth-like planet that could support some form of life. One prominent discovery is the Proxima Centauri b, also known as Proxima b, which was found in the habitable zone of the red dwarf star, Proxima Centauri.

    Despite these discoveries, there’s still a lot to learn.

    “We know very little about these [types of] planets,” Thomas Barclay, senior research scientist and director of the Kepler and K2 missions, told Space.com.

    So let’s go over what we do know about five of the closest Earth-like planets to us.

    1. Wolf 1061c

    Located in the habitable zone of Wolf 1060 in the Ophiuchus constellation, this exoplanet is 4.3 times as large as the Earth, and is believed to have a rocky surface. It is also the second-nearest known exoplanet to us at 13.8 light-years from Earth, second only to Proxima b.

    2. Gliese 832c

    At five times the size of the Earth, astronomers identified Gliese 832c as a “super-Earth.” It was found 16 light-years away and revolves around Gliese 832 in just 36 days.

    3. Gliese 667Cc

    Located 22 light-years away in the Scorpius constellation, Gliese 667Cc is also a super-Earth (3.9 times larger than Earth). It takes only 28 days for it to revolve around Gliese 667C.

    4. TRAPPIST-1d

    40 light-years away from Earth in the Aquarius constellation, TRAPPIST-1d is one among three Earth-like planets orbiting the dwarf star TRAPPIST-1.

    5. Gliese 163c

    Located 49 light-years away in the Dorado constellation, Gliese 163c is also a super-Earth at a whopping seven times that of the Earth. It takes 26 days for it to orbit Gliese 163.

    MILLIONS OF CHANCES FOR LIFE OUT THERE

    Using the Kepler Space Telescope, NASA has discovered more than 2,000 planets that could possibly support life, but there’s still so much mystery surrounding these alien worlds. “For some of them, we know an approximate mass or an approximate radius, and we know roughly how far they are from their star — but that’s really all we know.” said Barclay.

    And while living on these exoplanets may be possible, it will be an entirely different experience as life forms would have to adapt differently to its unique temperature, climate and environment. On Proxima b, for example,

    “The light also isn’t the bright white-yellow light we get from the sun. It would be much more red. So, you would expect biology to evolve differently,” Barclay said, adding that solar flares from red dwarfs could also have a large impact on exoplanets orbiting them.

    In the end, we won’t be packing our bags anytime soon to settle on one of Earth’s closest neighbors.

    The most startling revelation of the year so far came at the end of a BBCHorizon programme called Strange Signals From Outer Space!. I’ve always admired the lads and lasses who produce Horizon; for decades, they have been giving us programmes that stretch our minds and fill them with uplifting concepts about the possibilities of human endeavour. Clearly, though, the producers haven’t been reared in a newsroom environment. If they’d been schooled in the arts of detecting and conveying hard news, they would have stuck this potentially game-changing information at the top of their programme.

    It seems astronomers and space scientists have been showing more than a fancy to some bursts of activity in the blue yonder, which they believe might give them a chance of detecting alien messages. They’ve been looking at bursts of radio waves produced by neutron stars to search for unusual signal formations. Basically, these signals happen routinely and intermittently. But if any were to form into a pattern then there’s a decent chance that ET and his chinas are trying to contact us.

    This edition of Horizon had been a great wee programme where I got to discover that there was a Scottish connection to another set of signals that, alas, turned out to be less amazing than they’d otherwise promised to be. This was called the Lorimer Burst and can only have been so called in memory of Peter Lorimer’s screamer against Zaire at the 1974 World Cup. That, too, had promised amazing things but, in the end had turned out not to be as Scotland’s challenge ended in glorious heartbreak – just like the Lorimer Burst.

    Then, right at the very end, the narrator suddenly says: “Then in 2016 a new burst was detected; the distinctive pulse of radio waves released as the neutron stars collided and were destroyed, followed by nothing – silence – just as the astronomers expected. [At this point, the producers inserted a long pause for dramatic effect.] But then, when they looked again, the signal came back.”

    And that was the end of the programme.

    Essentially, the narrator was telling us that an alien signal was detected last year from outer space. But then, as soon as he did, the final credits started rolling. They should have put this at the start of their programme and then worked backwards with all sorts of delicious speculation about what it could be and how scientists had reacted. Indeed, the fact that they didn’t is deeply meaningful in itself and slightly unsettling.

    Although I don’t own a telescope, I’ve been keeping an eye on space for a good wee while now. And I can tell you that there’s an international executive protocol whenever there is even a hint of aliens sending us messages. Presidents and prime ministers are informed and soon there is a Cobra-like huddle in Geneva or somewhere similar as they determine whether they ought to be alarmed by the signal. Until now, nothing much has happened at these gatherings beyond the Russians getting an opportunity to collect more material for future blackmail operations.

    I think that last year’s signal – let’s call it the Archie Gemmill Burst in honour of the wee man’s goal against Holland in 1978 – is even now being scrutinised by international heads of state and their military advisers. What if the Archie Gemmill Burst has alarmed them and that they forbade the Horizon team from saying anything further about it? This in itself concerns me and it’s all because of Donald Trump. Prior to Donald Trump, I suspect that the Archie Gemmill Burst would have elicited a proportionate and considered response. Even if they were uncertain about the nature of the aliens’ communique, they would have tried to establish a dialogue. And this is where the Scots could have come in handy again. You see, this wee country of ours has been undertaking quite a lot of space activity recently.

    BBC Scotland even has its very own space correspondent, big Kenneth Macdonald, one of the most experienced and respected of its reporters. According to him, the Scottish space industry is a very vibrant one indeed. While Scotland makes up less than 9% of the UK population, it accounts for 18% of jobs in the UK space industry, while more than 100 private and public organisations have created almost 7,000 jobs and are contributing more than £130m to the Scottish economy. And – get this – in the past two years Glasgow has built more satellites than any other city in Europe. Glasgow has even hosted a conference on how to use the increasing amount of data coming from orbit.

    I think that Glasgow has shown it has all the credentials to represent planet Earth in any dialogue with the extraterrestrials over the Archie Gemmill burst. And that way, the world could be assured that this would be friendly and upbeat. “How are youze all?” we would say, before inquiring after the kids and asking if they’d had a long journey. Then we’d invite them down for a cup of tea and “perhaps something stronger”. We’d tell them that our intentions were friendly and that we’d be looking forward to getting to know them.

    But we’d also issue a friendly warning not to take any liberties. Any extended period of unwanted scrutiny can make Glaswegians feel a bit edgy. Such behaviour can often be met with the response: “What are you looking at, sunshine?” So it would be friendly and business-like at the same time.

    Donald Trump’s presence changes everything though. He’ll breenge his way to the front wearing a ridiculous US military brown leather jacket and daft baseball cap. And you can be certain he’ll have seen yon Independence Day movie where the American president himself leads a global military task force equipped with missiles. He’d immediately assume the aliens were an unfriendly shower and want to build some kind of virtual wall to keep them out. The stupid big bastard would see this as a way of rescuing his failed presidency.

    The aliens, though, will have seen him coming and have probably been bugging his hotel rooms and family apartments for years… as well as all the rest of them. I’ve got a bad feeling about this.

    Juno sees a familiar constellation from Jupiter

    It may look like much, but it's a new view from our solar system

    Imagine that you're standing on an alien world, far out in the galaxy. You look up and see a brilliant bed of stars above you, blanketing totally foreign sky. 

    But what if you were on a different planet a little closer to home? What would you see then?

    A new photo beamed back from Jupiter by NASA's Juno probe, gives us a good idea of what that could be like.

    The new Juno image gives us our first view of what it's like to look out from within Jupiter's rings — yes, the huge planet has its own rings — back toward something pretty familiar: the constellation Orion. 

    "The bright bands in the center of the image are the main ring of Jupiter’s ring system," NASA said in a statement

    An annotated version of the image

    IMAGE: NASA/JPL-CALTECH/SWRI

    "The bright star above the main ring is Betelgeuse, and Orion’s belt can be seen in the lower right."

    While the photo may not look like much, it represents a brand new view of our solar system.

    Juno is the first spacecraft to take a photo looking out from between Jupiter and its rings. 

    The spacecraft isn't done reshaping our view of the largest planet in our solar system either. Juno will continue to send back photos showing off Jupiter's cloud tops and storms along with other images of the huge world until its mission ends next year.

    Buitenaardse levensvormen op het ISS. Russische ruimteagentschap doet opmerkelijke aankondiging

    Het internationale ruimtestation ISS, dat al bijna 20 jaar rond de aarde draait, wordt elke dag geraakt door micrometeorieten en komeetstof dat mogelijk buitenaardse levensvormen bevat.

    Dat onthulde de Russische ruimtevaartorganisatie Roscosmos vrijdag in een persverklaring, meldt persbureau Sputnik.

    Zelfs op een hoogte van zo’n 400 kilometer vangt het ruimtestation constant grote hoeveelheden microdeeltjes op, waaronder bacteriën, schimmels en zelfs plankton.

    Buitenaardse oorsprong

    Volgens Roscosmos wordt het ISS ook vaak geraakt door komeetdeeltjes ter grootte van een graankorrel.

    “De micrometeorieten en het komeetstof aan de buitenkant van het ISS bevatten mogelijk biogene substanties van buitenaardse oorsprong,” aldus het ruimteagentschap in de persverklaring.

    Russische wetenschappers analyseren aminozuren die aan het oppervlak van het ruimtestation worden geproduceerd.

    Overleven

    Dat is niet eenvoudig, aangezien de monsters erg klein zijn en standaardmethoden niet gelijk resultaten opleveren. Experts werken momenteel aan een oplossing voor dit probleem.

    Kosmonauten hebben tijdens ruimtewandelingen in totaal 19 monsters verzameld buiten het ISS. Die monsters zijn overgebracht naar de aarde.

    In 2013 bleek dat sommige micro-organismen buiten het ISS kunnen overleven en zich zelfs kunnen ontwikkelen in de ruimte.

    Nieuwe bacterie

    Ze waren bestand tegen onder meer de extreme temperaturen en kosmische straling. Het is dus mogelijk dat aardse micro-organismen met ruimtesondes zijn meegereisd naar andere planeten.

    Op 20 mei lieten NASA-wetenschappers weten een nieuwe bacterie te hebben ontdekt op filters die waren geïnstalleerd in het ISS. De bacterie is vernoemd naar een Indiase oud-president.

    De nieuwe levensvorm, Solibacillus kalamii, is op aarde nog niet gevonden.

    NASA-functionarissen zeiden het bericht niet te kunnen bevestigen.

    Ministry of Defence officials 'DID investigate mass UFO sightings in West Wales village'

    The Broad Haven Triangle sightings made national headlines nearly 40 years ago

    BY 

    Broadhaven School children Drawings of UFOs February 1977

    A school pupil's drawing of a UFO in February 1977

    New details have emerged shedding light on a spate of mysterious UFO and alien sightings which gripped a West Wales community almost 40 years ago.

    Dubbed the 1977 Broad Haven Triangle mystery, conspiracy theories went into overdrive when reports emerged that 14 pupils from Broad Haven primary school had seen a UFO landing in Pembrokeshire.

    The head teacher at the time backed up their claims, saying they had all drawn similar pictures of the craft.

    Many others reported being petrified by a strange silver alien.

    Now a new novel claims to have revealed details of a declassified MoD document which suggests top-ranking officials carried out a covert inquiry into the mysterious activities.

    'Archive evidence'

    The Watchers by Neil Spring is said to be based on “true events” and promises to reveal the truth about what really happened at Broad Haven.

    Related: Welsh ministers were asked for information about UFO sightings... and they replied in KLINGON

    According to the Express, Mr Spring researched the case through documents sent to the National Archives 30 years after the bizarre happenings and after a new witness came forward.

    “I visited Broad Haven a sceptic, and came away convinced that some of the locals knew far more about the mysterious occurrences of 1977 than they are willing to reveal,” he said.

    'Faceless humanoid'

    According to documents held at the National Archive in Kew, the story began one night in April 1977 at 2.30am when Rosa Granville, who ran the Haven Fort Hotel in Little Haven, was awoken by strange noise and lights.

    Broadhaven School children Drawings of UFOs February 1977

    Looking out of her window, she described seeing an object which looked like an “upside-down saucer” in the field next to the hotel and two “faceless humanoid” creatures with pointed heads.

    The incident, she said in a subsequent letter she wrote to her MP Nicholas Edwards, left her “agitated and disturbed and not the least bit desirous of another encounter”.

    'Inundated with sightings'

    On receiving Mrs Granville’s letter back in 1977, Mr Edwards contacted the Ministry of Defence and Flight Lieutenant Cowan, an officer from RAF Brawdy, then visited the hotel.

    The MP said at the time: “I am being inundated at the present time with representations about UFOs said to have been seen in Pembrokeshire.”

    Other incidents reported in the Broad Haven area at the time included a class of schoolchildren who claimed to have seen a spacecraft near their playground.

    Then a family said they saw several UFOs in the space of a week, as well as several sightings of silver-suited creatures.

    MoD officials expressed no interest, saying there was no threat to national security.

    'Discreet inquiry'

    However, among the documents was a letter from the head of the MoD’s S4 wing to the Provost Security Service, the RAF’s internal police force.

    The S4 chief wrote: ”I have not even told the Minister I am consulting you” and called for a “discreet enquiry” after expressing bewilderment at the number of apparently “level-headed” witnesses to the strange activity.

    Mr Spring said: “(The new witnesses’) testimony rocked the very foundations of the British Government.”

    'Bombshell document'

    Nick Pope, who worked as UFO investigator for the MOD, said: “This bombshell document shows how the MoD’s UFO project asked the RAF Police to conduct a secret investigation into these mysterious events, while Parliament, the media and the public were being told the subject was of no defence significance.

    “Defence ministers were cut out of the loop.”

    The disclosures have prompted Tory peer Lord Black of Brentwood to call for a full explanation from the MoD of what it uncovered.

    'More answers needed'

    Lord Black said: “A number of recently released MoD files leave little doubt that a small number of sightings of aerial phenomena - particularly by military personnel, pilots and air traffic controllers - remain unexplained and unidentified.

    “There needs to be further examination of these issues in the hope of learning something new.”

    In A First, Atmosphere Detected Around An Earth-like Planet

    The observations of GJ 1132b, which is located about 39 light-years away from Earth, suggests the planet has a thick atmosphere containing either steam and/or methane.

    universe

    For the first time, astronomers have detected an atmosphere around an Earth-like exoplanet. Although it is unlikely that the planet is habitable due to its scorching surface temperature of 370 degrees Celsius (698 degrees Fahrenheit), the discovery is still being hailed as a major step forward in the search for extra-terrestrial life. Why? Because it is the chemical composition of a planet’s atmosphere that scientists presently use as basis to detect whether life on that planet exists.

    Basically, it has to do with the chemical imbalances caused by living organisms – in our case, it’s the presence of huge amounts of oxygen. Spotting an atmosphere on a planet other than the Earth therefore brings to mind the possibility that life might or might have existed on that planet too.

    The exo-planet is known as Gliese 1132b (or GJ 1132b). It’s located about 39 light years away in the southern constellation Vela and is referred to as a ‘super-Earth’, with a mass and radius that’s slightly larger than our own planet.

    The discovery of the atmosphere was made by a research team led by John Southworth from Keele University in the U.K. and Luigi Mancini from the University of Rome Tor Vergata. Other members of the team include researchers from the University of Cambridge and the Max Planck Institute for Astronomy.

    To get a better idea on the size and composition of the planet, the team — using the GROND imager at the 2.2 m ESO/MPG telescope of the European Southern Observatory in Chile — measured the dip in brightness across seven wavelengths of light as the planet passed in front of its host star (red dwarf star Gliese 1132) once every 1.6 Earth days.

    Based on the amount of light lost, they were able to deduce the size of Gliese 1132b — 1.4 times that of the Earth.

    The team also made a surprising discovery. They noticed that the planet appears to be larger in one wavelength than it does in all the other wavelengths. This suggests that its atmosphere is opaque to this particular wavelength, which is what causes it to appear larger as it is able to absorb some of the host star’s light. At all the other wavelengths, however, the atmosphere appears transparent.

    Researchers say that one possible explanation for this is the presence of water and methane in the atmosphere. As Dr. Southworth said in a statement they issued: ‘The planet is significantly hotter and a bit larger than Earth, so one possibility is that it is a “water world” with an atmosphere of hot steam.’

    Another point of interest about the planet is the fact that it is orbiting a red dwarf of low mass. As it is, such stars are quite common across the universe and though they are often found to host small planets, they are believed to be extremely active that the atmosphere of any nearby planet cannot survive the harmful X-rays and ultraviolet light it produces.

    With the discovery of Gliese 1132b’s atmosphere, it now appears that a planet’s atmosphere can actually endure the continuous bombardment of harmful cosmic rays. This in turn suggests that there are probably more planets like Gliese 1132b. More importantly, this might be an indication that the conditions suitable for hosting life are more common in the universe than we thought. Which is why further study of Gliese 1132b has now become a priority for the world’s most powerful telescopes including the Hubble Space Telescope, ESO’s Very Large Telescope, and the James Webb Space Telescope (scheduled for launch next year).

    Details of the study have recently been published in the Astronomical Journal.

    Mysterious ‘Alien Megastructure Star’ Flickers Again

    It has been puzzling astronomers since first discovered due to its weird flickering behaviour which no other star in the universe is exhibiting.

    Alien Star

    KIC 8462852 — also known as Boyajian’s Star, Tabby’s Star, or the “alien megastructure star” — has gained much interest and attention from astronomers around the world because of its unusual light fluctuations. Located in the Cygnus constellation nearly 1,300 light years from the Earth, the said star regularly loses its luminosity, only to revert to its original brightness after a certain period of time. In short, the star flickers. And this weird phenomenon has not been observed in any other star, which is what makes it so excitingly mysterious.

    Using data from NASA’s Kepler Space Telescope, the flickering of Tabby’s Star was first detected in September 2015 by a team of volunteers led by astronomer Tabetha Boyajian (for whom the star was named after). And now, it’s doing it again.

    As reported by Space.com, scientists all over the world were alerted to the situation by Jason Wright — an associate professor of astronomy at the Pennsylvania State University who is also managing a study of Boyajian’s star — during a live webcast on May 22nd. He received a phone call from the Fairborn Observatory in Arizona confirming that Boyajian’s star has once again exhibited its unusual behavior and was observed to be ‘3 percent dimmer than it normally is’.

    With the return of the perplexing event, amateur and professional astronomers alike have become more determined than ever to understand the star’s puzzling behavior and solve the question of why it behaves the way it does. Triggering the request to ‘turn as many telescopes as possible toward the star, to try and crack the mystery of its behavior’, some of the world’s largest and most powerful telescopes are now focused on Tabby’s Star, including the twin 10-meter telescopes at the W.H. Keck Observatory in Hawaii and the Automated Planet Finder telescope at Lick Observatory in California through the Breakthrough Listen Initiative — deemed to be the most powerful and comprehensive scientific search ever undertaken for signs of intelligent life beyond Earth.

    Scientists have formulated a number of hypotheses that attempt to explain the star’s unusual behavior. The most common hypothesis suggests that nearby planets have broken apart and that fragments of planetary material are blocking the view from Earth. Another popular hypothesis suggests that swarms of comets passing in front of the star cause it to dim. And of course, there’s the alien theory proposing that the dimming (which was up to 20% at one point) is being caused by an alien megastructure orbiting around the star, collecting its energy.

    The fact that there doesn’t seem to be a pattern to Tabby’s Star’s flickering is what’s making the explanation for it quite elusive. Which is exactly why its present flickering is quite significant. With so many scientists focused on it, there’s a better chance of figuring out what’s causing its behavior.

    At the very least, the star’s luminosity can be observed using different colors and light spectra, which can then provide us with a clearer picture of the types of chemicals present when the flickering occurs, or even the characteristics of the objects or materials blocking the star’s light.

    Whatever the answer behind this star mystery turns out to be, the world will surely be waiting. And scientists will be watching.

    Close encounters of a blurred kind! UFO hunters ZOOM in on faded Roswell photo and claim US general’s memo reveals a ‘disc-shaped craft and victims’ found in 1947 mystery crash

    • Air Force General Roger Ramey was pictured in 1947 holding the memo

    UFO BOMBSHELL: Could this memo solve Roswell 'flying saucer' crash mystery?

    DECIPHERING this memo captured in an alleged image of the remains of whatever crashed in Roswell, New Mexico, nearly 70 years ago, could solve the world's biggest ever UFO mystery, it has been claimed.

    Roswell-UFO-Ramey-Memo

    USAF

    Mr Ramey holding the memo (circled) in the picture in question.

    Roswell has been at the heart of the alien hunter scene since the military sensationally announced in a press release in July 1947 it had found a crashed flying saucer in the desert nearby.

    But the following day the statement was retracted and officials said the debris was in fact a damaged US Air Force air balloon.

    Witnesses later came forward to say there had been a cover up and alien bodies were found within the "crashed craft", which along with the wreckage were then taken to the mysterious top-secret Area 51 military base in Nevada.

    The alleged cover up has become the world's biggest UFO conspiracy theory.

    The photograph in question shows General Roger Ramey in his office at Fort Worth Army Air Field, later known as Carswell Air Force Base. 

    He is holding a memo and crouching over debris that he claimed was from the Roswell crash and was identifiable as coming from a weather balloon.

    USAF

    The Ramey memo in close up.

    But, many UFO researchers doubt the debris in the photo is actually from the object which crashed outside Roswell in July, 1947. They say it is was used as part of a cover up.

    They believe the text in the memo could proves their claims once and for all.

    Just hours before the pictures were taken, the public information officer at Roswell Army Air Field, sent out the infamous press release saying they had discovered the remains of a crashed flying saucer.

    This was on the orders of his superior, Colonel William Blanchard.

    Then the story gets stranger.

    Jesse Marcel was the intelligence officer who was sent to inspect and collect the material a day earlier.

    He was ordered to bring the material to Fort Worth.

    He later testified that when he got to Fort Worth, he was taken to Mr Ramey’s office where a photographer and chief of staff, Colonel Thomas Dubious, were waiting. 

    He claimed on the floor was different material that clearly came from a weather balloon and he was made to pose with it as if it was the debris he collected.

    These were the pictures that accompanied the subsequent article which claimed a mistake had been made and it was a weather balloon and not a UFO.

    Alejandro Rojas, a presenter for Open Minds Radio, said: "Marcel says he was ordered to go along with the story, and like a good soldier, he did what he was told, no questions asked.

    "Incidentally, Dubois also later claimed the debris in these photos were part of a cover-up. He said the weather balloon material was set out to trick the public.

    "The weather balloon explanation was accepted by the press and the public. 

    "It was not until the 1980s, when witnesses like Marcel came forward that the incident began to catch the public’s attention." 

    But the plot thickens.

    An inquiry into Roswell by New Mexico Congressman Steven Schiff, led to an admission from the Air Force that the weather balloon explanation was a cover-up.

    He says it is clear that there is a reference to a disc, and believes he can also make out a portion of a sentence that reads 'and the victims of the wreck’.

    Alejandro Rojas

    But this inquiry still concluded there was nothing extraterrestrial.

    The conclusion stated a top secret project called Project Mogul - to send balloons with sensitive listening devices used to detect Russian nuclear tests - was underway, and the debris was from one of these devices. 

    The weather balloon cover-up was to stop Project Mogul being compromised, the inquiry concluded.

    But, now UFO researchers think modern technology could solve the case once and for all.

    In the photos, the memo is seen in Mr Ramey's hands. 

    David Rudiak has used modern technology to zoom in on the text and claims to have deciphered some of the words.

    Roswell-Memo

    DavidRudiak

    David Rudiak claims to have deciphered these words in the memo.

    He believes he is now able to read 80 percent of it.

    Mr Rojas added: "He says it is clear that there is a reference to a disc, and believes he can also make out a portion of a sentence that reads 'and the victims of the wreck’.

    "Rudiak says this proves that a disc-shaped craft was recovered. 

    "However, perhaps more startling, he says it also corroborates the claims that extraterrestrial bodies were recovered from that wreck."

    The inquiry report said it had not been possible to decipher the text, saying: “The photo was sent to a national-level organisation for digitising and subsequent photo interpretation and analysis.

    David-Rudiak

    David Rudiak claims to have been able to read 80 percent of the memo.

    This organisation reported on July 20, 1994, that even after digitising, the photos were of insufficient quality to visualise either of the details sought for analysis.”

    Not all researchers agree with Mr Rudiak’s interpretation, but it is felt more needs to be done to read the memo in full.

    An anonymous donor has pledged a huge reward for information, says UFO author Kevin Randle.

    In a blog titled “Ramey Memo and the $10,000 Reward”, he wrote: “A trusted colleague who is not a Ufologist but does have an interest in Roswell and UFOs and who has the money, has taken this in a slightly different direction. 

    "He is offering a $10,000 reward for the first person or group/lab that can provide a definite read of the Ramey memo.

    “To claim the reward a number of criteria will need to be met, including full reproducibility of the result (with methodology of the individual/lab completely explained and transparent so that anyone knowledgeable can replicate in much the same way that the placard on the Not Roswell Slides was revealed). 

    "There must be overwhelming agreement that the result is definitive with most of the text clear enough that there is little or no disagreement on what it says across a broad spectrum of people of all opinions whether true believer or complete sceptic.”

    Roswell geen mysterie meer? Doorbreekt deze vreemde memo de geheimzinnigheid rond de UFO-crash?

    Een dag later werd dat bericht weer ingetrokken en zeiden de autoriteiten dat de wrakstukken afkomstig waren van een beschadigde weerballon van de Amerikaanse luchtmacht.

    Getuigen zeiden later dat het incident in de doofpot was gestopt en dat er lichamen van buitenaardse wezens waren geborgen, die naar Area 51 in Nevada waren gebracht.

    Doofpot
    Roswell geen mysterie meer? Doorbreekt deze vreemde memo de geheimzinnigheid rond de UFO-crash?

    De Ramey-memo (Wikicommons)

    Op de oorspronkelijke foto’s is te zien hoe generaal James Ramey in zijn kantoor op het Fort Worth Army Air Field een memo in zijn hand houdt.

    UFO-onderzoekers zeggen dat die memo voor eens en voor altijd kan bewijzen dat het incident in de doofpot is gestopt.

    Inlichtingenofficier Jesse Marcel moest de wrakstukken inspecteren en verzamelen. Hij kreeg de opdracht het materiaal over te brengen naar Fort Worth.

    Anders

    Hij getuigde later dat het materiaal dat in het kantoor van generaal Ramey lag anders was dan de wrakstukken die hij had onderzocht.

    “Marcel zei dat hij het spelletje moest meespelen en zoals een goede soldaat betaamt deed hij wat hem werd opgedragen,” zei Alejandro Rojas van Open Minds Radio.

    De fotograaf en stafchef, kolonel Thomas Dubois, claimde later dat de wrakstukken op de foto’s onderdeel waren van de cover-up, aldus Rojas.

    Misleiden

    “Hij beweerde dat het materiaal van de weerballon werd gebruikt om het volk te misleiden,” zei hij. “Pas in de jaren tachtig kwamen getuigen zoals Marcel naar buiten.”

    Het Amerikaanse congreslid Steven Schiff stelde een onderzoek in naar het Roswellincident. De luchtmacht gaf tijdens dat onderzoek toe dat er inderdaad sprake was van een doofpot.

    Moderne technologie kan deze zaak voor eens en voor altijd oplossen, denken UFO-onderzoekers.

    Ontcijferd

    David Rudiak heeft ingezoomd op de memo in de handen van Ramey en claimt 80 procent van het document te hebben ontcijferd.

    “Hij zegt dat er duidelijk wordt verwezen naar een schijf,” zei Rojas. “Hij denkt dat één van de zinnen betrekking heeft op ‘de slachtoffers in het wrak’.”

    “Rudiak zegt dat dit bewijst dat er een schijfvormig vaartuig is geborgen,” voegde hij toe. “Hij zegt dat uit de memo ook blijkt dat er buitenaardse lichamen zijn geborgen.”

    PHAETHON - THE MISSING PLANET OF OUR SOLAR SYSTEM: DESTROYED BY AN ANCIENT NUCLEAR WAR?

    There is a belief that if we study other planets in our solar system, we might be warned of the fate that could befall the earth if we aren't careful. This could certainly be the case when it comes to Phaethon, the tenth planet in our solar system. Some of you are no doubt thinking wait there are only nine planets in our solar system, and we have never heard of Phaethon. Well, some have heard of Phaethon and have been researching the existence of the planet for years. A scientist has for years studied the asteroid particles that seem to hoover around the area between Mars and Jupiter. These asteroids have scientists and even writers of science fiction wondering if perhaps hundreds of year ago another planet existed in our solar system.  

    TENTH PLANET IN SOLAR SYSTEM DISCOVERED

    The planet which has been named Phaethon has been researched for years, and many believe that this planet could have been highly advanced civilization. So, what happened to Phaethon, why does it no longer exist? Well, many believe that the asteroid belt that surrounds the large expanse of space between Mars and Jupiter is all that remains of Phaethon and that it was lost in a huge blast that caused it to explode literally. There are those who speculate that the blast was so monumental that it could be that of a nuclear explosion. But was the nuclear explosion man made or was it done by the atmosphere itself? Well, this has also been researching, and some scientists believe it was an implosion by the atmosphere itself. There is also a belief that Phaethon got into a battle with it's closest neighbor Mars which many believe was also habitable at that time. Either way, there could be a cautious lessen for the earth itself since the atmosphere if the earth is now suffering and the earth has much unrest along with nuclear technology.

    But despite the research evidence that Phaethon did exist there are those who argue the other side of the coin. There are researchers who dispute that Phaethon ever existed at all, despite the distance between Jupiter and Mars, along with the huge asteroid belt that surrounds this area. According to these researchers believe though that these asteroids aren't the debris of a planet but the beginnings of new planets that will evolve in the future. It turns out there is an argument for this theory as well, along with proof. So, which theory is true, perhaps none of us will know in our lifetimes. After all, if these asteroids are the beginning of new planets it could take millions of years for these to form and none of us will be around. In the mean time the area around Jupiter and Mars remains a mystery one that scientists, researchers, and authors have pondered, even if they don't always agree on what this area represents.

    RAW FOOTAGE OF UFO CRASHING - NETHERLANDS EARTHQUAKE

    Today at 3h30 local there was a 2.6 earthquake in the Netherlands. Right after the earthquake a sky watcher that was watching the skies above Groningen for the last couple of days shot this amazing footage of a UFO that was clearly shot down right after the earthquake.

    The raw video shows us an object falling down while it's attemping to correct it course. It appears that it's main propulsion system is down but it's trying to gain altitube to boosting some kind of trusters. The video shows the object in a falling trajectory, while it's attempting to regain control of it's propulsion system.  

    The sky watcher tried to shoot as many video as possible but suddenly the object outsmarts the tracking system and we don't know whether the object crashed to the ground or whether it regained altitude.

    The video is unique because it's shows the raw inside of a UFO and it's propulsion technology.

    A Model Series: Six Of The Best From UFO

    UFO is currently being broadcast on Forces TV at 6pm on Saturday and Sunday. We’ve restored some beautiful pictures of our favourite models from the show.

    Let us know your favourites and make sure you watch UFO this weekend!

    The SHADO Rocket
    The SHADO Rocket

    Only featuring in one episode (The Man Who Came Back) and located at The Cape, the rocket is one of our favourite models because of how incredible the launch sequence is. Check out the video above to see it in its full glory.

    The MoonBase Interceptor
    The MoonBase Interceptor

    Designed by Mike Trim and then revised by Derek Meddings. Armed with a single nuclear missile distinctively attached to the front of the craft, SHADO’s first line of defence against the UFO attacks.

    The Lunar Carrier & Lunar Module
    The Lunar Carrier & Lunar Module

    The gorgeous Lunar Carrier is responsible for flight within the Earth’s atmosphere. It carries the Lunar Module which is released into the upper atmosphere before flying on to the Lunar Base.

    The Lunar Mobile
    The Lunar Mobile

    Charged with ground defence of the Moonbase and equipped with rocket launchers. These fantastic models still look incredibly modern.

    The Skydiver
    The Skydiver

    It’s never said how many Skydivers are patrolling the oceans in UFO. If a UFO penetrates the Earth’s atmosphere SHADO launchers a fighter to intercept it.

    One of our favourite episodes, Sub Smash, will be broadcast on Sunday, June 4, at 6pm. It features a damaged Skydiver in the dept

    A UFO

    hs of the ocean.

    A UFO

    The aggressor itself, the UFO. Pronounced as “You-FO”. They have a transparent outer shell protecting an opaque core.

    Capable of travelling at 12 times the speed of light but forced to slow down in the atmosphere, these are a force to be reckoned with.

    UFO continues at 6pm on Saturday and Sunday on the Forces TV Channel, Sky 264, Virgin 277 and Freesat 165

    Inside the 'UFO state' of Nevada: Cruising the Extraterrestrial Highway and hearing eye-opening tales from the owner of the Little A'Le'Inn by Area 51 makes for an out-of-this-world trip

    •  Nevada boasts the most UFO sightings in the world, is home to the mysterious Area 51 military base
    • To find out more MailOnline dropped in to the aptly-named Little A'Le'Inn in Rachel, near the installation
    • There we spoke to owner Pat, who told us tales of strange craft 'really weird manoeuvres at high speed'

    They say that Nevada has the loneliest roads in the whole of America.

    You can certainly travel for hundreds of miles and not see a single person. But are you really alone?

    After all, Nevada boasts the most UFO sightings in the world, is home to the mysterious Area 51 military base, where many say alien technology is being analysed – and it even has a road called the 'Extraterrestrial Highway'.

    To find out more MailOnline Travel dropped in to the aptly-named Little A'Le'Inn in Rachel, the nearest town to Area 51, to have a chat with the owner about the area’s strange goings on.

    Pictured is MailOnline reporter Anthony Joseph on the Extraterrestrial Highway in Nevada

    Pat, the owner, has lived in Rachel all her life.

    To say it's a small town is an understatement - only 50 people live there.

    She is utterly convinced that Area 51 is testing alien life and is adamant she has seen UFOs.

    The 63-year-old said: 'I have actually watched a craft do manoeuvres. It was probably 15 years ago. I can tell you I was just coming home with my niece. It was in a place where there were things that just should never have been there.

    Many people around the world have their theories, but local knowledge is always the best. MailOnline visited the Little A'Le'Inn cafe and chatted to the owner, Pat, about her out-of-this-world experiences

    THE MYSTERIOUS PASSENGER JETS THAT FLY FROM LAS VEGAS TO AREA 51 

    At Las Vegas McCarran International Airport is a fleet of passenger aircraft (pictured) it's impossible to buy tickets for - because they fly to the US's secret Area 51 military base

    At Las Vegas McCarran International Airport is a fleet of passenger aircraft (pictured) it's impossible to buy tickets for - because they fly to the US's secret Area 51 military base

    In August 2016 it was revealed that a number of passenger planes were flying from Las Vegas McCarran Airport to Area 51.

    They don't carry any company logos – they're plain white with a red band down the side - and anyone who boards one is sworn to secrecy about where they're going and what they do for a living.

    The reason that the aircraft, mostly Boeing 737s, are so shadowy in nature, is because they serve America's most secret military base.

    But why are they there and what do they do? A Las Vegas taxi driver who served as a pilot for these aircraft said: 'The people there (at Area 51) are not like us.'  

    'It did really weird manoeuvres at high speed. I think we work side by side with alien beings – can I prove it? No. But I feel that. Just the shape of it – it was a saucer shape. It could have been a new technology that we were never aware of yet. But things just happen like that.

    'We told reporters of a sighting that had happened and they did their report. They got part way up the road and saw this thing and they got scared and came back.

    'They came inside and said “I want a shot of tequila” and then he told us their story.

    'They couldn't get to their cameras as there was actually a vehicle that they couldn't describe. It was really awesome.’

    A sign that all is perhaps not as it seems: Rachel in Nevada is the nearest town to Area 51

    Other locals are also convinced that aliens have landed.

    She continued: 'Some of them (the locals) have their own stories. Other people don't talk about it. We have one lady who was followed from Alamo to here by a craft. She could see it. She feels the only reason she didn't get abducted was because she was over child-bearing age. Can I prove it? No, but that was what she told me.

    'Many people have seen things happen over the years. Strange things. I think we've had beings too – I think about three. We had one who came and attended a conference and we were in the building and in 12 hours he never used the bathroom, never drank anything or ate anything.

    'Can I prove it? No. But I can tell you what happened. I think he was an alien being – I think a lot of them are just like humans.’

    Pat talks about aliens almost as if they were an accepted part of life.

    She added: ‘It's kind of common knowledge in these parts that they exist. It's not to be afraid of. Everybody talks about – it's been going on so long.' 

    NEVADA'S OTHER BIZARRE ATTRACTIONS

    There are many places to visit between Las Vegas and the Extraterrestrial Highway (State Route 375) in Nevada.

    Around two hours north-west of the city you will find yourself in the ghost town that is Rhyolite.

    There you will find whacky art displays, including the ghost sculpture of the Last Supper.

    Further up the road there is an abandoned school, pub and jail from the early 1900s, which is intriguing.

    One hour's drive north from here is a tiny place called Tonopah. This town was once the home of a mining industry worth $2million.

    But real estate and gaming became big business throughout central Nevada and by 1910 the town of Tonopah had less than half the population it had 15 years earlier.

    The Mizpah Mine still exists and has now become an attraction for visitors.

    If you are staying in Tonopah, it is recommended that you stay in the Mizpah Hotel.

    The hotel is said to house a ghost deemed 'the Lady in Red' by guests who have experienced her presence.

    A book at the reception of the hotel has regular updates of similar ghost sightings and experiences from guests who have stayed there.

    This is a real throwback to the Wild West and is in a stunning location.

    And just before arriving back in Vegas, on Route 93, is Cathedral Gorge State Park, a public recreation and nature preserve area featuring a gorge that’s been eroded in spectacular fashion.

    ZIJN CHEMTRAILS ONDERDEEL VAN BUITENAARDSE OORLOGSVOERING?

    Vooral het laatste jaar is het aantal waarnemingen van UFO’s in de buurt van chemtrails nogal fors toegenomen. 

    Als daar nu eens, mogelijk bovenop de bekende redenen zoals klimaatmanipulatie en het onzichtbaar maken van de naderende planeet Nibiru, een hele andere reden voor is dan dat wij tot nu altijd hebben gedacht? 



    Niemand weet formeel wat deze vliegende objecten zijn, waar ze vandaan komen of wat ze willen. Zijn ze gewoon nieuwsgierig zoals sommigen denken of zit er veel meer agenda achter dit veelvuldig(er) verschijnen bij chemtrails? 

    Het gaat zelfs zo ver dat die UFO's soms deze chemtrails als het ware lijken op te eten zoals we vorig jaar heel duidelijk hebben kunnen zien in de buurt van Parijs. Iets wat tot nu toe ook nog niet echt duidelijk is, is wie verantwoordelijk zijn voor de chemtrails in de lucht en ook hier weer: waarom? 

    Er zijn verschillende theorieën zoals het blokkeren van het zonlicht op aarde om verdere opwarming tegen te gaan, het verbergen van de planeet Nibiru voor al te nieuwsgierige ogen tot aan het testen met en het uitroeien van de wereldbevolking door het sproeien van giftige deeltjes in onze atmosfeer. 

    Maar, wat als die chemtrails nu eens met een heel andere reden in de lucht worden gesproeid? Wat als die reden zou zijn het verstoren van elektromagnetische velden in het kader van oorlogsvoering waar buitenaardsen bij betrokken zijn? 

    Dit klinkt voor velen uiteraard als sciencefiction. We leven echter in een tijd waar dingen gebeuren waarvan we dachten dat het sciencefiction was, maar nu steeds meer realiteit aan het worden zijn. 

    Van een lezer ontvingen wij (dank!) het volgende bericht

    Dat Poolse filmpje zie je een vliegtuig met chemtrail en die andere is een zelfde vliegtuig alleen dan zonder chemtrail. zelfde soort die een andere positie inneemt een paar bochten vliegt om vervolgens zijn rook kanon weer aan te zetten. 

    De rasters die ze vliegen lijkt wel op een soort kooi van Faraday en wat zo raar is boven Nederland heb ik er 5 geteld van deze vliegtuigen die dus weer niet op internet zijn te traceren. 


    De lezer refereert aan een deel uit een eerder artikel: 

    Een vergelijkbaar verhaal deed zich onlangs voor in Polen. Ook daar filmt iemand een vliegtuig met daarachter een enorme chemtrail. 

    Ook daar zie je op een gegeven van rechtsboven een UFO naar beneden duiken richting chemtrail, alsof het wil onderzoeken welke ellende daar in het luchtruim wordt gesproeid. 

    Net zoals wat de getuige in Engeland beschrijft, lijkt het alsof degene die deze UFO’s onder controle heeft ronduit nieuwsgierig is


     

    Wat is een kooi van Faraday? 

    Kooi van Faraday, genoemd naar Michael Faraday, is de benaming voor een kooivormige constructie van elektrisch geleidend materiaal, zoals koper of ijzer, die ervoor zorgt dat statische elektrische velden niet tot binnen de kooi kunnen doordringen. De kooi is wel doordringbaar voor statische magnetische velden zoals het aardmagnetisch veld. De kooi biedt bescherming tegen statische ontladingen zoals bliksem. 


    De voortstuwing van UFO’s gebeurt door middel van antizwaartekracht en elektromagnetische velden. Onderdeel van wat er in onze atmosfeer wordt gesproeid zijn metaaldeeltjes die natuurlijk heel goede geleiders vormen en waarmee je een magnetisch veld kunt creëren. 

    Een dergelijk veld zou het weleens heel moeilijk kunnen maken voor UFO’s om te vliegen en te navigeren. 

    Nu er ieder jaar meer wordt gesproeid boven onze hoofden, zie je ook vaker UFO’s opduiken in de buurt van deze chemtrails. Zijn deze misschien op onderzoek om te kijken wat ze eventueel kunnen doen om dat verstorend magnetisch veld te elimineren? 

    Woedt er wellicht binnen de heersende macht een oorlog tussen twee verschillende kampen die zich voor een deel afspeelt in de ruimte, een oorlog waar wel of niet ook buitenaardsen bij betrokken zijn? 

    Voor het gemak gaan we er altijd van uit dat die chemtrails door vliegtuigen worden gemaakt, maar misschien is dat wel helemaal niet zo. 

    Precies vijf jaar geleden publiceerden wij al een artikel waarin de mogelijkheid werd onderzocht dat chemtrails misschien wel eens door buitenaardsen gemaakt zouden kunnen worden. 

    Een klein deel uit dat artikel: 

    Het is een theorie, geschreven door een voor ons onbekend individu. Misschien is het vergezocht, maar er zou ook een kern van waarheid in kunnen zitten als je luchten ziet zoals op de volgende foto:

    ct 1

    De eindconclusie van het artikel is als volgt: 

    De chemtrails zijn echt en hebben een echt effect in de derde dimensie. De sproeivliegtuigen, die niet van de aarde of de maan of uit de derde dimensie afkomstig zijn, komen “ergens anders” vandaan. Het sproeien wordt niet gedaan door onze regeringen. En de regeringen hebben ook geen controle over de sproeivliegtuigen. Dus, het enige wat de regering kan doen is wat ze deden met UFO’s. Ze gaven als verklaring “Venus” of “moerasgas”. Chemtrails? Dat zijn contrails mijn vriend. Einde discussie. 

    Chemtrailpatronen zoals op de hierna volgende foto kunnen eenvoudigweg niet gemaakt worden door vliegtuigen, ook al halen ze nog zulke vreemde capriolen uit.

    ct 2

    Uiteraard weten wij ook niet hoe het precies zit en wie voor wat verantwoordelijk is, maar door het verleggen van grenzen en het denken buiten de normaal gangbare patronen zijn tot op heden al heel wat onduidelijkheden opgelost. 

    De lijnen van de machthebbers stoppen niet aan de rand van de aarde en daarom kunnen chemtrails wel eens (óók) voor iets heel anders dienen dan wat tot nu toe altijd is gedacht.

    Credible Source Says Extraterrestrial Prevented The Nuclear Detonation Test In Space

    Nuclear UFOs

    Colonel Ross Dedrickson was working as inventory maintenance of the nuclear weapons stockpile for the US Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) in the 1950s. He was also responsible for assisting security teams monitoring the safety of the arms and among many other duties.

    His obituary states that he was assigned to the AEC between 1950-1958. His responsibilities included administration at Nevada test sites, nuclear weapon manufacturing and quality assurance in Albuquerque, management of Pacific Nuclear Test Area in the west of Hawaii, and inspection of facilities across the country both nuclear and non-nuclear. He was put to the 5th Air Force in Japan and later served as a ranking Colonel. He then served as an officer in charge of the Pacific Unified Command in Hawaii. He was transferred to the 832 Air Division at Canon Air Force Base in Clovis, New Mexico and served as deputy. In 1964, he retired from the USAF.

    His verified professional background has made him one of the credible whistleblowers from the military. His testimony involving UFOs and nuclear weapons can now be corroborated with information and evidence within the public domain.

    Dedrickson explains how the U.S. government attempted to detonate a nuclear weapon on the moon.  The plan that was called Project A119 wanted to investigate the capability of weapons in space and get insight on the detonation of nuclear devices within the space environment.

    However, Dedrickson revealed that space aliens destroyed a couple of nuclear weapons sent into space. He said that they tried to put a nuclear weapon on the moon and explode it for scientific measurements and other things at the very end of the 70s and the early 80s, but extraterrestrials destroyed the weapon before it reached to the moon.

    Canada’s Falcon Lake Incident Still A Mystery 50 Years Later and The Best-Documented UFO Case

    stefan-michalak

    His father came home sick and injured from the Falcon Lake woods in Manitoba on the long weekend of May 1967. It is how Stan Michalak can still remember the ongoing mystery that put his family life into upheaval. The incident remains one of the best-known UFO encounters in the world.

    stefan-michalak-ufo

    Michalak, who was nine years old at the time, recalled that his father was in bed and did not look good as he looked pale and haggard. When Michalak walked into the bedroom, he noticed a major stink in the room. He described it as like a real horrible aroma of Sulphur and burnt motor all around. He later discovered that the smell was coming out of his father’s pores.

    Michalak, who co-authored the book “When They Appeared,” was terrified to learn that his father had been injured as he did not know anything about it. Within a couple of days, he knew more, but so did much the public. The Winnipeg Tribune newspaper ran a story about of a UFO that burned his father. It was the time everything hit the fan.

    The Encounter

    An industrial mechanic by trade, Stefan Michalak is also an amateur geologist who is interested of the wilderness around Falcon Lake, about 150 kilometres east of Winnipeg, specifically for quartz and silver. The prior year, he had staked some claims, so he decided to explore some more on the long weekend of May.

    The 51-year-old Stefan was close to a vein of quartz along the Precambrian Shield on May 20, 1967, when a gaggle of nearby geese, which erupted into a clattering of honks, startled him. Stefan looked up and spotted two cigar-shaped objects having a reddish glow floating about 45 metres away. One of the two landed on a flat section of rock and now took more of a disc shape. The other one stayed in the air for a few minutes before flying off.

    Stefan thought it was a secret U.S. military experimental craft, so he decided to sketch it over the next 30 minutes. Then he approached the object and felt the warm air and smelt a sulphur-like smell as he got nearer. He also heard a whirring sound of motors and a hissing of air.

    The door on the side then opened with bright lights inside. Stefan said that he heard voices muffled by the sounds from the craft. He called out and offered mechanical help, but he got no answer. Stefan decided to speak his native Polish but still got no reply. He also tried Russian and German, but only whirr and hiss of the craft responded.

    stefan-michalak-metal

    Stefan claimed he went closer and noticed the smooth metal without seams of the object. He then looked into the bright doorway and saw light beams inside and panels of several coloured flashing lights. However, he could not see anyone or anything inside.

    When Stefan stepped away, three panels slid across the door opening and sealed it. He reached to touch the craft but shocked to see the fingertips of the glove he was wearing melted. The craft then started to turn counter-clockwise, and Stefan noticed a panel that contained a grid of holes. Moments later, a blast of air or gas struck in his chest that pushed him backwards and set his cap and shirt ablaze.

    As he ripped away the burning garments, the craft lifted off and flew away. Stefan stumbled through the forest and vomited. Fortunately, he made his way back to his Falcon Lake’s motel room then ride a bus back to Winnipeg. He cared for burns to his chest and stomach at a hospital. His injuries later turned into raised sores on a grid-like pattern. Weeks after, he suffered from weight loss, blackouts, headaches, and diarrhoea.

    Eventually, the story was out of the media, RCMP, the air force, various government agencies, and the public. All of them descended to the Michalak’s’ small bungalow in River Heights, Winnipeg. Michalak received endless visitors and phone calls as the media and people camping on the lawn. It had taken several years before it died down.

    Stefan, who died in 1999 at the age of 83, felt that time that it was his duty to share the story for the others to avoid it and not get hurt. Stefan was a military policeman back in Poland before he moved his family to Canada. As a police officer, he had set moral guidelines and that if something happened, it should be reported.

    The family endured criticism and condemnation, Stefan’s sanity was questioned, and Stan was bullied in school. However, these were not enough for Stefan to back away from the story. Until his death, Stefan’s story never changed.

    After intense investigations that were carried out by a number of levels of government, the official conclusion was that the case was unexplained. Investigators retrieved Stefan’s glove and shirt, as well as some tools from the encounter site, but no one could tell what caused the burns.

    At the landing site, investigators found a circle measuring about 15 feet in diameter. They saw devoid of the moss and vegetation in other areas of the same rock. Samples of clothing and soil samples were tested, and they discovered that they were highly radioactive.

    by Stan Gordon

    Did you see anything strange in the sky last year?  Were you out in the woods and encountered a mysterious animal unlike anything that you had ever seen before? Did you experience an incident that you couldn’t find an explanation for?  If you answered yes to any of these questions, you were not alone. Many Residents from across the state of Pennsylvania reported numerous observations of strange lights and objects in the sky throughout 2015. Some claimed to have seen formations of glowing lights, while others reported encountering spherical, cigar, triangular and rectangular objects from many locations of the Keystone state.

    Even stranger were reports from many locations of encounters with mysterious creatures. Sightings of  Bigfoot have historically been recorded for years, and these incidents continue to be reported annually, There were reports of huge birds with massive wingspans (thunderbirds) and even black panthers that are not common to this part of the world. Some creature reports were even stranger.

    Citizens of Pennsylvania reported many types of strange incidents including seeing strange footprints, hearing frightening howls, whoops and screams from nearby woods, observing odd clouds, seeing fireballs crossing the sky, and experienced loud mystery booms that shook their homes. Some reported various paranormal experiences including capturing strange images on their cameras. As in past years, the majority of anomalies reported concern unusual lights and objects in the sky.

    My interest in strange occurrences began in 1959, when I began to record and document mysterious incidents that were occurring in my home state of Pennsylvania. I was 16 years old in 1965 when the Kecksburg UFO incident occurred in Westmoreland County, and I began to document details about what  had taken place. I began to conduct in the field investigations of UFO and cryptid reports after that incident, and set up a hotline in 1969, for the public to report UFO sightings and other unusual accounts. After so many years of interest in these strange occurrences, I still have never seen a UFO or Bigfoot.

    I continue to record such incidents that come to my attention yearly via phone or email. Today there are many other researchers and organizations who also receive Pennsylvania reports. Some of these  resources gathering this information include the National UFO Reporting Center, The Pennsylvania Bigfoot Society, the PA Chapter of MUFON, Jim Brown of Jim’s Destinations, and Lon Strickler of “Phantoms & Monsters.” I maintain contact with many UFO and Bigfoot investigators statewide and across the country.

    When I began my field investigations many years ago into various phenomena, it became apparent that many incidents that initially sounded unusual, when properly investigated, were found to be explainable and determined to be of manmade or natural origin. Many UFO sightings are found to have logical explanations and over the years some observations were explained as bright planets and stars, brilliant meteors or re-entry of space debris, lights on aircraft, satellites, NASA high altitude tests, searchlight beams, lights reflecting off of insects, Chinese lanterns, and remote control aircraft. And now we have to deal with quadcopters (drones) with led displays.

    Some Bigfoot sightings were only misidentifications of bear or large shaggy dogs. Others were camouflaged hunters in the woods. Many strange footprints were normal tracks that had been distorted by weather and ground conditions. The point is that many anomalies of various types can be explained. Not every UFO and cryptid encounter, however, can be so easily explained away.

    While strange encounters are reported from many widespread locations from across the state, one of the most active areas for such unusual incidents continues to be along the Chestnut Ridge that covers sections of Westmoreland, Fayette, and Indiana Counties.

    The following are some of the interesting incidents that came to my attention in 2015.

    March 12, 2015- Two people had gone out to do some late night shopping near Monessen, located in the Mon Valley area. As they passed under a bridge, the car headlights struck a nine feet tall man-like creature that was covered with black hair that was standing along the side of a road.  As soon as the lights hit it, the creature squinted its eyes and turned and tilted its head. The couple stared at the creature for about 15 seconds then quickly left the area. About 50 feet away from where they saw the creature, they noticed a terrible odor. The Mon valley has had a long history of Bigfoot sightings.

    March 16, 2015- Numerous sources received information of a loud boom that shook houses that evening over a wide area of Fayette County from Connellsville to Uniontown. About the same time odd lights were reportedly seen in the area, which were followed by observations of an unusual amount of helicopter activity. A similar mystery boom was reported the night before in Allegheny County.

    April 17, 2015- During the evening at a rural location in Westmoreland County not far from West Newton, two people were sitting off a country road and observed a bright white light in the sky moving in their direction which began to make a circular motion. The solid round white object, which made no sound, approached closer to them and hovered over some trees. Suddenly, the car and the area around it became illuminated by a dim white light that was emitted from the hovering object. The witnesses quickly left the area.

    April 18, 2015- At a rural location in Greene County not far from Waynesburg, a driver observed what looked like a tall upright figure covered with hair moving quickly up a hillside near a construction site.

    April 18, 2015- During the early morning hours, a witness located in a rural area near South Greensburg saw what looked like a tall dark figure in the yard. Later at that location, a large unusual footprint was found that measured approximately 16.5 inches long and 8 inches wide. In past years, other strange creature encounters have been reported from this general area.

    April 21, 2015- Around 10:30 AM, a couple was driving between Parker and East Brady in Butler County when they saw a bright flash of light in the sky. The flash appeared to have been the sun reflecting for a moment off the surface of a very large solid object that appeared to be off in the distance over the Allegheny River. The witnesses pulled over to take a better look. The object looked solid black and rectangular shaped and looked to have 4 rows of windows or indentations on its surface. The object entered a large dark cloud that was nearby. The man readied his camera to photograph the object when it exited the cloud, but after 45 minutes, the object was never seen again.

    May 8, 2015- Two people driving up a hill during the afternoon in North Huntingdon Township observed a silver metallic “pill” shaped elongated object that was rounded on the ends. The object was moving rapidly across the sky and was soon blocked by trees. When they reached an open view the object was not seen again. There have been many UFO sightings reported around the Irwin and North Huntingdon areas for years.

    August 28, 2015- In the distant evening sky over the Laurel Ridge near Ligonier, witnesses observed an object that looked like a clear bubble with a fuzzy looking outside edge. As the witnesses watched, the strange object suddenly dropped straight down from the sky towards the ground. They expected there to be an impact and explosion but they neither heard nor saw anything after that. Many strange events have occurred over the years around both the Laurel Mountain area and Chestnut Ridge.

    Late August-Early September, 2015- This incident took place around 5 PM on a sunny afternoon as the witness was taking a leisurely drive in eastern Butler County. Suddenly, 15-20 feet ahead of the vehicle and about ¾ of the way across the road, a being that was hard to describe was moving from right to left in front of the car. Whatever this thing was, it had a skinny body, stood about 4-4 ½ feet tall, and was similar to the color of a deer.

    The head looked somewhat like that of a deer but was not real pointy. It narrowed at the top then rounded off. The creature was observed only from the side. The arms were very short and were held close to the chest. The hands were quite small and looked as though they were carrying something or being held together. No legs or feet were observed. The driver said the thing just “glided” above the roadway. When the witness reached the location on the road where the creature had been, it was no longer seen. The witness could not understand how the thing was just gone in a matter of seconds.

    September, 2015- A witness reported seeing a huge black bird with a wingspan estimated to be over 15 feet wide that wasn’t flapping its wings, but just soaring through the sky. The sighting took place near the Cedar Street exit outside of Greensburg.  This area has had a history of thunderbird reports. There were other reports of giant bird sightings from across the state during the year.

    September-October 2015- Numerous reports of triangular objects were reported from various locations.

    On September 1, 2015, a witness near Springdale located about 18 miles NE of Pittsburgh observed a very bright white light toward the west that evening.  As the light got closer, an unusual loud sound was heard unlike that of jet or propeller aircraft. As the object passed low overhead, it appeared to be huge and was not any type of aircraft the witness was familiar with. The observer looked up at the bottom of a solid boomerang shaped object that had evenly spaced dim white spotlights that were all non-blinking  along the edge of the underside of the object. The underbelly of the object had a greenish tinge. The object moved toward the east, then banked to the south and moved out of sight.

    In early October at a rural location between Fayette and Westmoreland counties, a man walked outside of his home around 11 AM and looked up to see the bottom of a very large solid black triangular object that had appeared to have four exhaust vents. The object was moving very slowly about 500 feet above the ground and was completely silent. The man grabbed his cell phone which was completely charged to take a picture. When he aimed at it, the phone reportedly lost all power and would not function. This effect has been reported by other witnesses over the years.

    November 23, 2015- At about 2 PM, a married couple was driving on a rural road about 2 miles from Ligonier. The driver noticed some movement in the bushes to the right of the road. Suddenly, an animal began to trot from right to left about 10-20 feet ahead of the car. The car was stopped as both witnesses watched something quite strange.

    The animal was four legged and looked somewhat like a fox. However, they could only see the outline of the animal, as this creature was not solid, and no color or fur was observed. The husband told me that the animal had a “smoky veil shape” but his wife who had a longer look at it stated that she could “see through it.” She also said that there was a specific area within the body shape that was like an energy pattern. They watched as the animal entered the woods to their left and never saw it again.

    December 24, 2015- At about 9 PM, a witness was outside when he noticed a solid triangular object southwest of Greensburg. There were a number of non-blinking lights on the silent object which was approaching closer to the witness location. The witness grabbed a floodlight and aimed it towards the object. As soon as the light hit the object, it disappeared and was not seen again.

    December 9, 2015, was the 50th anniversary of the Kecksburg, PA UFO crash-landing incident.

    Late that afternoon in 1965, a brilliant fiery object was observed over a widespread area. That object reportedly fell from the sky into a wooded ravine near that Mount Pleasant Township community.  Soon after the object fell, many eyewitnesses reported military personnel arriving in that area to search for the fallen object.

    The object was reportedly taken away from that location on a military flatbed tractor trailer truck where it was transported first to Lockbourne  Air Force Base in Ohio for a short stay over. The truck then continued on to Wright Patterson Air Force Base where it ended its journey. There have been many theories brought forth over the years as to what the object was that fell near Kecksburg in 1965. What that object was remains open for speculation.

    Ovnis détectés près d’une zone secrète ?

    Des ufologues ont filmé plusieurs objets volants non identifiés à la frontière de la zone 51, une zone secrète appartenant aux forces aériennes des États-Unis et qui se trouve dans la partie sud de l'État du Nevada.

    L'un des témoins a déclaré : « L'objet est surgi du néant. D'abord, il se déplaçait dans le ciel nocturne, lentement et sans faire de bruit. Puis, il a accéléré jusqu'à atteindre une vitesse incroyable. Ayant fait une analyse de la vidéo, nous avons remarqué un deuxième et même un troisième objet. On ignore ce que c'était ».

    Selon des témoins, le premier objet sphérique est surgi « de nulle part » et semblait examiner le terrain. Au début les ovnistes l'ont pris pour un satellite.

    Un célèbre acteur américain déclare avoir été témoin des lumières de Phoenix

    Le célèbre acteur américain Kurt Russell vient de rompre un silence de 20 ans au sujet de l’une des plus grandes observations d’ovnis de masse des États-Unis.

    Kurt Russell a déclaré avoir été témoin des mystérieuses lumières de Phoenix, en Arizona, alors qu'il se trouve à bord d’un avion.
     
    Russell a tout révélé sur la chaîne BBC lors d’une interview avec d’autres réalisateurs de films de science-fiction.
     
    Le pilote et les deux passagers de l’avion ont repéré six lumières dans le ciel nocturne avant de les signaler à la tour de contrôle pour savoir ce qui se passait.
     
    Russell a affirmé : « Le numéro de l'avion était Bonanza two Tango Sierra, et j'étais le pilote ».
     
    Il a déclaré que lui et Oliver Hudson, son fils, volaient au-dessus de Phoenix.
     
    Il a déclaré : « Nous étions en en phase d’atterrissage lorsque j'ai observé six feux au-dessus de l'aéroport, en forme de V ».
     
    La tour de contrôle de l’aéroport a déclaré à Russel ne rien avoir observé sur son radar.
    Il a déclaré au sujet de l’incident de Phoenix dont il a découvert l’ampleur que plusieurs années plus grâce notamment à un documentaire : « C'était l'événement ufologique le plus regardé. Plus de 20 000 personnes l'ont vu. »
     
    Dans ce documentaire, il a été mentionné qu'un pilote avait déclaré avoir vu l’ovni lors de son atterrissage, et c'est à ce moment-là que Russell a su qu'il s'agissait en fait de lui.
     
    Il a dit : « Cette observation était tout simplement sortie de ma tête. Oliver ne l'a plus jamais mentionné… Si je n'avais pas vu ce documentaire, je n'aurais jamais pensé à cela… »
     
    Selon Alejandro Rojas, animateur d'Open Minds Radio : « Apparemment, c'est la première fois que Russell raconte cette histoire en public. »
     
    Avant cela, Russell n'avait pas été associé à la célèbre observation d’ovnis de Phoenix.
     
    Rappelons que cette manifestation de grande ampleur eu lieu le 13 mars 1997  lorsqu’une formation de cinq lumières a été vue dans par des milliers de personnes durant trois heures : de 19h30 à 22h30.
     
    Les observations ont eu lieu dans une zone d’environ 300 milles, allant de Phoenix jusqu’à Tucson.

    Pour rappel, voici une compilation des différentes vidéos capturées à Phoenix :

    The object in question is the bright orb below the large galactic center.

    ‘Extraordinarily Bright’ Mystery Object Spotted in Galaxy Cygnus A

    Astronomers working at the National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO) in New Mexico have discovered a mysterious object in the Cygnus A galaxy. Cygnus A is about 800 million light-years from Earth and is one of the strongest sources of radio waves in the known universe. 

    In this radio image taken by the National Science Foundation’s Very Large Array (VLA), the object in question is the bright orb below the large galactic center.

    The object was first spotted by the Hubble Space Telescope in 1994, but it was believed to be a cluster of young stars at the time. These most recent observations show that the object has very quickly become “extraordinarily bright,” baffling astronomers as to what its identity might be.

    The object is found in the Cygnus A galaxy, seen here by the Chandra X-Ray Observatory.

    Rick Perley, an NRAO astronomer who spotted the luminous anomaly, says that whatever the object is, it lit up to its current brightness relatively recently:

    To our surprise, we found a prominent new feature near the galaxy’s nucleus that did not appear in any previous published images. This new feature is bright enough that we definitely would have seen it in the earlier images if nothing had changed. That means it must have turned on sometime between 1996 and now.

    There are two leading theories about what the ‘extraordinarily bright’ object might be: one, that it could be a black hole outburst. An outburst is a jet of energy and matter which was lucky enough to be flung away from the gravitational center of a black hole as opposed to pulled into its inescapable grasp.

    Cygnus X-1, the supermassive black hole at the heart of Cygnus A.

    The other theory is that it could be a massive supernova, although its brightness appears to suggest otherwise. Cygnus A already has a supermassive radio-emitting black hole named Cygnus X-1 at its center, so this discovery could mean that a second black hole has joined the galaxy thanks to a recent galactic merger. If that theory is confirmed, they would be the closest known pair of black holes ever discovered.

    Bewijs voor 'leven na de dood'. Deze mensen stierven en vertellen nu wat ze meemaakten

    Bewijs voor ‘leven na de dood’. Deze mensen stierven en vertellen nu wat ze meemaakten

    In een uitzending van het programma Dit is de Dag deden drie mensen die een bijna-doodervaring (BDE) hebben gehad hun verhaal.

    Rinus van Warven werd in 1981 aangereden door een dronken automobilist. Hij zag zichzelf liggen in de ambulance en ging naar eigen zeggen een tunnel in met licht.

    Hij hoorde vervolgens een stem zeggen dat hij nog niet verder mocht. Hij moest terug naar de aarde. Het voelde alsof hij in de hemel was geweest.

    Licht en helder

    Lucia Prinsen zei dat een BDE je leven op zijn kop zet. In 2005 was zij in het ziekenhuis voor de bevalling van haar tweede kind.

    Ze kreeg een verkeerd medicijn en zakte weg. Ze was buiten bewustzijn, maar zag toch alles om zich heen gebeuren.

    Prinsen bevond zich in een allesomvattende, pure liefde. Alles was licht en helder, zei ze.

    Niet begrepen

    “Ik heb geprobeerd erover te praten, maar dat ging niet,” vervolgde ze. “Mijn omgeving had er geen oor voor. Artsen konden het niet verklaren.”

    Machteld Blickman was in 1975 ernstig ziek. Ze zag zichzelf uit haar lichaam treden. Ze overzag haar leven en zag een prachtig licht. Het voelde alsof ze er eerder was geweest.

    Ook zij kon er lange tijd niet over spreken omdat mensen haar niet begrepen.

    Meer openheid

    Cardioloog Pim van Lommel zei onlangs in het programma Langs de Lijn En Omstreken dat het taboe er inmiddels wel een beetje vanaf is.

    Niet alleen in de samenleving, maar ook in de beroepsgroep is er meer openheid voor het bestaan van BDE’s.

    Laptop

    Van Lommel stelt dat ons bewustzijn niet in de hersenen zit, maar maken de hersenen het mogelijk om bewustzijn te ervaren.

    “We ontvangen, net als een laptop,” zei hij. “Maar bewustzijn is niet afhankelijk van onze hersenen, net zomin als het bestaan van de iCloud afhankelijk is van het aanstaan van je laptop.”

    Gelekte video toont mysterieus vaartuig bij topgeheime basis Area 51. Is dit een buitenaards schip?

    Video topgeheime basis Area 51 gelekt. Is dit ruimteschip gemaakt door aliens of mensen?

    In de video, die ruim een kwart miljoen keer is bekeken, is een vliegend object te zien in de lucht. Het lijkt in niets op bekende vliegtuigen.

    Het vaartuig zendt licht uit terwijl het heen en weer beweegt. Het filmpje is hieronder te zien:

    Volgens Tyler Glockner van SecureTeam 10 zijn de beelden ergens in de jaren tachtig of negentig gemaakt.

    Hot topic

    “Het is één van de mysterieuze puzzelstukjes binnen de ufologie,” zei hij over de beelden.

    Area 51 is een hot topic geworden voor alien-jagers, aangezien de Amerikaanse overheid in 2013 het bestaan van de geheime basis erkende.

    CIA-documenten

    Het Amerikaanse Nationaal Archief openbaarde in augustus 2013 CIA-documenten na een Wob-verzoek van archivaris Jeffrey Richelson, die overtuigd was van het bestaan van de legerbasis in Nevada.

    Inmiddels is bevestigd dat het spionagevliegtuig U-2 en de Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird zijn getest op de basis.

    BOUW JE EIGEN ANTI-ZWAARTEKRACHT TOESTEL ( VIDEO )

    Naar aanleiding van een eerder artikel over de patentaanvraag van het geheimzinnige driehoekige TR-3B toestel, kregen wij heel interessante reacties. 

    Naast informatie over meer patentaanvragen over “vliegende schotels”, ook een handleiding voor het bouwen van je eigen anti zwaartekracht toestel. 



    Ter informatie, het gaat om het volgende toestel:

    De aanvraag staat op naam van John St. Clair, op wiens naam nog talloze patenten zijn aangevraagd

    Goeden avond. 

    Ik zag dat artikel over die UFO. 

    En ik wou even zegen. In de tijd van Hitler was dat al uitgevonden. Oud nieuws natuurlijk. Werk met vril energie. 

    Weet wel een en ander. Maar wou alleen even dit patent lijst laten zien. Ik heb het gecheckt en dit bestaat echt allemaal. 14 verschillende. Dacht misschien interessant voor je. 

    Dat is het zeker en bij de boodschap zit de volgende afbeelding bijgevoegd. Zo te zien geen twijfel mogelijk dat we hier te maken met UFO-achtige ontwerpen. Voor de liefhebbers zijn al deze patenten op te zoeken omdat de nummers van het patent of de aanvraag zichtbaar zijn.

    Het één leidt tot het ander en dus kregen we van een andere lezer de vraag of de patentaanvraag waarover wij schreven misschien iets te maken kon hebben met het volgende. 

    Het gaat om een eenvoudig experiment waarvoor je geen raketwetenschapper hoeft te zijn om het zelf te kunnen uitvoeren. 

    Het resultaat is echter verbazingwekkend, want je ziet de constructie inderdaad omhoog komen wanneer de stroom wordt aangezet en er een elektromagnetisch veld wordt gecreëerd. 

     

    Uit de commentaren onder de video blijkt dat sommigen dit geen anti zwaartekracht vinden, omdat zij zeggen dit theoretisch nog nooit op papier is bewezen en dus bestaat het niet. 

    Tja, dit is typisch wetenschap. Als iets werkt zoals hier, waarbij we duidelijk zien dat de zwaartekracht wordt overwonnen, dan bestaat dit niet omdat zij de theorie daarvan op papier niet kunnen bewijzen. Er is groeiend bewijs bovendien dat zwaartekracht zoals ons dat is geleerd niet bestaat en ook Newton had er een theorie over. Met dat in gedachten lijkt dit antizwaartekracht apparaat wat ons betreft al veel logischer en dus ook hoe UFO's die wij in de luchten zien zich verplaatsen.

    Misschien iets voor Coen Vermeeren om een schriftelijke cursus: “Hoe bouw ik mijn eigen UFO in tien eenvoudige stappen op de keukentafel?” te ontwikkelen?

    WE WERE WRONG ABOUT JUPITER! NEW IMAGES OF NASA'S PROBE JUNO STUN SCIENTISTS

    When NASA launched the Juno space probe back in August of 2011, the goal was that the over a billion dollar project would give them a chance to study the planet Jupiter more closely. Five years later in July of 2016 Juno finally made it to the orbit of Jupiter.  

    JUNO REVEALS SURPRISING INFORMATION ON JUPITER

    At that time the eight instruments that were installed in the space probe were initialized to study the composition of Jupiter more closely. But perhaps nothing could prepare the research scientists for what would be discovered when Juno Apparently the atmosphere on Jupiter consist of cyclones and stunning, powerful auroras the likes of which the Earth has never seen or experienced. The cyclones which are massive take place around Juno's icy poles. So, what has the scientific community have to say about these new discoveries about Jupiter? One researcher and author Scott Bolton from the Southwest Research Institute has been quoted about these stunning images of Jupiter's atmosphere as saying:

    "Discoveries about its core, composition, magnetosphere, and poles are as stunning as the photographs the mission is generating, "

    These are just the most recent information gathered on Jupiter from the now fame Juno space probe. Since 2016 Juno also gave vital information about the composition and measurements of Jupiter as well. Now the question is what will ultimately become of Juno? Well, eventually it will burn out in Jupiter's atmosphere which has been estimated to occur some time at the beginning of 2018. So, yes this was a one-way mission.  

    May seem like a whole lot of money wasted, but was it? After all, for decades, the other planets of our solar system have been a mystery, very little was known about them. Now thanks to Juno we know so much more about Jupiter than ever before. So, mission accomplished, as for the images of Jupiter that the space probe has gathered, these can now be seen online. The images can certainly show just how intimate a look this truly was, and are worth seeing for ourselves.

    EXPOSED: US MILITARY HAS TWO 'SPACE AGGRESSOR SQUADRONS' TO COMBAT EXTRATERRESTRIALS

    Two teams of Air Force specialists are right now out there in the Rocky Mountains in the US preparing to defend the interests of America in space. These are the 26th Space Aggressor Squadron along with the 527th Space Aggressor Squadron. Their job is to train the remainder of the military for any possible arguments that might lead to war with extraterrestrials, along with coming up with strategies that would allow them to defend interests of the US in space.  

    This might sound like something out of a movie, preparing for an alien attack. They are taking on bad guy roles, playing out at intergalactic scale attacking along with provoking troops from the US in mock space battles. They have the mindset that space battles could occur and threaten America just as foreign countries and any other hostile powers.

    US MILITARY TROOPS TRAINED FOR STRATEGIC USE OF SPACE RESOURCES RELATED ARTICLES

    More Troops Commit Suicide Than Die In Combat In The War On ISIS666 Cult Illuminati Gestures Exposed In This Video The job of the Space Aggressors is to train the troops of the US Military to be able to make strategic use of space resources. An example would be taking part in brute force jamming, using the satellite networks to send signals so that any original messages that are sent cannot be read by outsiders. They are also training the forces in the US to fight without the use of any space resources; this would include satellite communications or GPS, to make sure that they would be able to fight competently using only maps, inertial navigation, and compasses.

    Captain Christopher Barnes, the 26th SAS chief of training said that they study any threats to the space realm, which can come from land or space. He went on to say that if they are unable to replicate them directly with hardware, they work out if there is a software solution or whether there is a way that people can be trained so that it is possible to fight through them or if everything else fails, fight in the conflict.

    The Space Aggressors launch attacks that are simulated along with doing training exercises. However, more than just games, the simulations are a response to threats to security that are taken seriously. The majority of the American warfare and defense are reliant on the GPS system, which is made up of a chain of 31 satellites.

    IF SATELLITES ARE TAKEN OUT TROOPS IN US WOULD BE HELPLESS

    Over recently years officials who are high-ranking in the US military said that more preparation is needed for defending space, more so due to the development of anti-satellite weapons in Russia and China. It was said that the enemy could take out satellites and that this would then leave the troops in the US helpless.  

    The executive director of the Office of Space Commerce, Ed Morris, said that the threat may stretch even beyond the battlefield. He said that when people lose their internet connection at the office they find it difficult to work, he then asked what would happen if the cell phone connection was lost, the TV, radio, credit card use, ATM access and maybe even the electricity.

    MANUAL ON INTERNATIONAL LAW APPLICABLE TO MILITARY USE OF OUTER SPACE DRAWN UP

    The world over has now recognized the threat of warfare along with aggression in space and how important it is to prepare for it. A group of lawyers has been drawing up the first body of law to have been applied to space. The work has been based largely on the principles of international law that already exist and come from the efforts of the coalition and will have the name of the Manual on International Law Applicable To Military Uses of Outer Space.

    At the moment it is undecided on how the manual is going to apply to the various nations on Earth, however, if it is going to work nations such as the US are going to have to choose to take part. Rather like the United Nations, without commitment and the participation of member states, international law, whether it has been applied in space or Earth, will more than likely not be effective.

    Mysteries at Jupiter: NASA's Juno Probe Reveals Cyclones, Auroras & Surprises

    Huge cyclones rage near Jupiter's mysterious poles, and the giant planet's powerful auroras are fundamentally different from Earth's northern and southern lights.

    Those are just two of the discoveries made by NASA's Juno spacecraft during its first few close passes over Jupiter's poles, mission scientists report in two studies published online today (May 25) in the journal Science.

    "What we've learned so far is Earth-shattering. Or should I say, Jupiter-shattering," Juno principal investigator Scott Bolton, of the Southwest Research Institute in San Antonio, said in a statement. [Photos: NASA's Juno Mission to Jupiter]

    "Discoveries about its core, composition, magnetosphere, and poles are as stunning as the photographs the mission is generating," added Bolton, the lead author of one of the new Science studies and a co-author of the other.

    The $1.1 billion Juno mission launched in August 2011 and arrived in orbit around Jupiter on July 4, 2016. Since then, the solar-powered spacecraft has been using eight instruments to study the gas giant's composition, interior structure, and gravitational and magnetic fields. It will continue to do this work, barring some sort of malfunction, through at least February 2018, the end of Juno's primary mission.

    The mission's name is a nod to the Roman goddess Juno, who was able to look through the clouds to see her frequently misbehaving husband Jupiter, the king of the gods, who was hiding within. Likewise, the Juno probe is peering beneath Jupiter's thick clouds to learn about the planet's formation and evolution — information that could shed light on the history of our solar system as a whole, NASA officials have said. 

    Juno makes most of the measurements relevant to this goal during its close flybys, which occur once every 53.5 days and bring the probe within about 3,100 miles (5,000 kilometers) of Jupiter's poles. (The original mission blueprint called for Juno to maneuver to a less elliptical orbit and make these flybys every 14 days, but an issue with two helium valves in the spacecraft's propulsion system nixed that plan.)

    Juno has now made five of these data-collecting "perijove passes." The first came on Aug. 27, 2016, and the most recent occurred just last week, on May 19. The two new Science papers report results just from the first few flybys, as well as some measurements Juno made as it neared Jupiter in June 2016.

    Before Juno, no spacecraft had ever gotten close-up looks at Jupiter's poles. These mysterious regions are beautiful and bizarre, the Bolton-led study reports.

    "When you look over the poles, all of those zones and belts are gone," Bolton said in a Science podcast that was also released today, referring to the striped cloud patterns prevalent at Jupiter's lower latitudes. "You see this bluish hue to it, and there's tons of these cyclone and anticyclonic storms spinning around the poles. It almost looks like meteor craters, but, of course, it's all atmosphere. It's all gas." [Photos: Jupiter, the Solar System's Largest Planet]

    It's unclear what, exactly, drives these polar cyclones, some of which are up to 870 miles (1,400 km) wide, or if they're stable over long periods, Bolton said.

    "Over the course of the mission, we'll be able to watch the poles and see how they evolve," he said in the podcast. "Maybe these cyclones are always there, but maybe they just come and go."

    Juno also has been mapping out the concentration of water and ammonia deep within Jupiter's atmosphere. Data gathered during the first few passes has revealed that ammonia abundances vary quite a bit from place to place — a discovery that surprised the mission team.

    "Most scientists have felt that, as soon as you go down a little bit into Jupiter, everything would be well-mixed, and we're finding that that's just not true at all," Bolton said. "There's structure down deep, but it doesn't seem to match the zones and belts. And so we're still trying to figure it out."

    Juno's measurements during the first few close passes also show that Jupiter's magnetic field is nearly two times stronger than scientists had predicted. And the probe's gravity data suggest that "there's a lot of strange, deep motions that possibly are going on inside of Jupiter," Bolton said.

    "What Juno's results are showing us is that our ideas of giant planets maybe are a little bit oversimplified," he added. "They're more complex than we thought; the motions that are going on inside are more complicated. It's possible that they formed differently than [suggested by] our simple ideas."

    Earth's auroras result when the solar wind — charged particles streaming from the sun — slam into the planet's atmosphere, generating a glow. (Earth's magnetic field funnels these particles toward the poles, which explains the phenomenon's other name: the northern and southern lights.)

    Scientists already knew that the solar wind is a major driver of Jovian auroras, and that the planet's rotation is involved as well. But Juno has given researchers a chance to study the phenomenon in unprecedented detail; no other spacecraft had ever flown close to the planet's auroral regions before, Bolton said. 

    The second newly published Science study, which was led by John Connerney of the Space Research Corporation and NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland, details what the Juno team learned about the auroras and Jupiter's magnetosphere from the initial perijove passes. Once again, there were some surprises.

    For example, the particles associated with Jupiter's auroras seem to be different than the ones responsible for Earth's most stunning light shows, study team members said.

    "We can see that it doesn't work exactly like we expected, or as the Earth does," Bolton said. "We haven’t been able to see particles necessarily going up and down in both directions like we would've expected to cause the aurora. So there's definitely some strange phenomena that we still need to comb through and understand better."

    Further close flybys should allow the Juno team to investigate such questions, he added.

    "We're at the beginning of the mission, so these first results are sort of telling us some of our models and ideas are wrong and need to be corrected," Bolton said. "And we have some ideas of which way to go, but it really takes some more data to really test whatever theories we put together and see if we're right."

    UFO Sightings: Kurt Russell Talks Being Witness To Famous ‘Phoenix Lights’ Incident

    UFO sightings have been a regular occurrence since time out of mind, and one of the most popular UFO events in the last century happened in Phoenix, Arizona. Famously referred to as the “Phoenix Lights,” the UFO sighting, which happened in 1997, was reportedly witnessed by thousands of people. Twenty years since the incident, veteran Hollywood actor Kurt Russell finally opened up about being a witness to the event. And he was no regular witness, either. He didn’t see the alleged UFO from the ground looking up, he saw it from behind the cockpit of the private aircraft he was flying.

    Kurt Russell got the opportunity to talk about his UFO experience in an interview with BBC One’s The One Show,where he promoted Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2 alongside co-star Chris Pratt, as reported by Open Minds.

    The interview took an interesting turn when host Gyles Brandret pulled out a folder with the letters “Top Secret” written on it. In reading the folder’s contents, Brandret told a story about an unidentified pilot who was flying a private plane with his son near the Phoenix airport. The unnamed pilot reportedly called the control tower to report that they saw six mysterious lights. The control tower promptly responded, saying that they hadn’t detected any planes in the area.

    Brandreth capped the story by exclaiming, “Mystery unresolved!”

    Pratt, who affected an incredulous look on his face throughout the account, admitted that he was a skeptic when it comes to UFO sightings. Kurt Russell, on the other hand, has been wearing a mischievous grin all along.

    And then out of nowhere, Russell, 66, said that he and his son Oliver Hudson (Goldie Hawn’s son from her first marriage) flew a private aircraft from Los Angeles to Phoenix in 1995 so that he could take Oliver to see his girlfriend.

    “We were on approach and I saw six lights over the airport in absolute uniform, in a V-shape,” Kurt continues.

    Russell recalled that Hudson asked him if he knew what the lights were. When he said that he didn’t know, they contacted the control tower, who said that their radar didn’t find anything. Russell and his son then decided that they may have witnessed a UFO sighting.

    The two never made mention of the UFO sighting again after they landed, at least until two years later, when Kurt came home one day to see Hudson watching a TV show reporting on a UFO sighting that occurred in Phoenix.

    “That was the most viewed UFO event. Over 20,000 people saw it,” Russell added.

    Kurt Russell recalled feeling like “Richard Dreyfuss from Close Encounters” while watching the show, and his suspicion was confirmed when the show mentioned that an unnamed general aviation pilot reported the UFO sighting to a control tower upon landing. “That was me,” Kurt remembered thinking to himself.

    Russell then checked his log books, proving without a shadow of a doubt that his flight happened at the time of the popular UFO event.

    “The fascinating part to me is that it just went, literally, out of my head. Oliver never mentioned it. Had I not seen that show, I would have never thought of it. That, to me, was the weird part,” he said.

    The “Phoenix Lights” incident remains to be one of the most talked about UFO sightings even two decades later, according to Fox 10. The event has spawned a plethora of theories as to what could have caused the strange lights to appear in the sky that night. For two decades, skeptics and believers debated over the light’s origins.

    Even to this day the “Phoenix Lights” incident remains a mystery.

    Is A “Breakaway Civilization” Behind The Mysterious Secret Space Program?

    Richard Dolan author of, UFOs and the National Security State 1&2, and A.D. After Disclosure, came up with the term Breakaway Civilization to describe a separately evolving covert, technically advanced community of people with trillions of dollars of resources siphoned off from our host society. This very autocratic, even fascist elite society uses fear, greed and intimidation even murder, to remain invisible to its host society all under the guise of National Security.

    Anything that relates to this Breakaway Civilization is classified Top Secret or above with access by need to know and Special Access Programs (SAPS). While much of the Breakaway Civilization is centered in the United States it has integrated itself into allied governments around the globe. It is what President Eisenhower called the Military-Industrial complex in his farewell speech, just before leaving office, warning that it was breaking away from constitutional controls.

    If a person really thinks about it, Special Access on a need to know basis, is how the plantation slave owner controlled his slaves, educating them just enough to do their jobs but no more. To educate them further than need to know would invite rebellion. The old plantation system promoted ignorance among slaves in tandem with methods of control based on fear, intimidation and reward. I think the New World Order (NWO) as envisioned by the Elite Military-Industrial Complex Globalists is no more than a more sophisticated version of old feudal society reintroduced into the modern age.

    The NWO’s wage slaves are not controlled by the whip or the withholding of food as in the past, but through the creation and control of paper money and the mass media. Money is created and distributed through private central banks disguised as Federal, in almost every country of the world. Paul Hellyer the Ex-Defense Minister of Canada gave a very good speech called Global Fraud, Global Hope that explains sophisticated mechanism of control and even slips a little ET information into the mix as well.http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=23431

    I explained in the introduction to this book that there should be nothing surprising about the idea of elite breakaway civilizations. Humanities past is replete with instances where the ruling elite of a society overtly maintains a standard of living and technology in advance of what subjects as a whole have access to. What is different is when such a system becomes covert, and hides behind a guise of National Security, while growing like a cancer to such size that it subverts and corrupts legitimate transparent constitutional governments all around the world.

    I am going to provide the reader with evidence that supports the idea that much of this Breakaway civilization’s advanced technology and its super-secret Space Program is based upon reverse engineering extraterrestrial technologies. These advanced exotic propulsion and exotic power technologies have been gained first through extraterrestrial crashes, and soon afterward from what are called Technology Transfer Programs (TTPs), negotiated between different ET civilizations including the Tall Whites and the Greys. Such negotiations imply embassies and ambassadors, in fact Charles Hall states that his female teacher in the 1960s was, “The Ambassadors Daughter”.

    This Military Industrial Complex is the real reason the UFO/ET cover up has lasted so long because the corporations involved profit immensely from maintaining a monopoly on ET access or in the suppressing of exotic cheap energy technologies that would put the fossil fuels industry out of business. I call this loosely knit conglomerate of allied special interests the Alien Resource Cartel.

    According to aerospace engineer Bill Uhouse and Ben Rich this cartel was spun off of the MJ12 organization in a purge by the Nixon administration in the 1960s. These following quotes from Bill Uhouse material provide fascinating window into how, what he calls the Satellite Government operates. As one can see from these quotes Nixon left a dark imprint upon society in this arena as well. In this early report Bill was called Jarod, but later the ET he worked with was called the Jarod. Bill Uhouse states:

    “Understanding how this social structure works is like trying to understand the internal relationships of a tight-knit family in some Asian culture.” “If any area seems dubious, he asks his boss about it, who says either “Okay” or “Let’s hold off on that a while.” For example, his boss said it was okay to mention Nixon as the founder of the Satellite Government, because “Nixon is dead. ” Playing by the rules is very simple for Jarod. He is not working from any rule book or security classification system.”

    “Jarod says the satellite government lives by its own laws, completely separate from the conventional government except for an interface with the military. It is not controlled by any other agency, so it does not have to obey the security regulations of other agencies. The fact that Jarod is allowed to speak does seem to imply permission from a higher level than the supervisor, but perhaps a word from management, without any paperwork, is all it takes to make something secret or not secret. Security could be both more intrusive than in any conventional defense program and more informal to those who are used to the structure. Consider the special circumstances….”

    “This agency was separated from the rest of the government over 40 years ago. Thus, it would have had an opportunity to evolve in its own way, adapting to the unique requirements of the subject matter.” “The organization is largely composed of older men who have worked with each other for decades. A worker’s supervisor and his security officer are assigned to him for life.”

    “The organization is extremely hierarchical, especially given the needs of compartmentalization. A worker reports only to his immediate supervisor, and direct contacts with members of other departments and higher management are rare.” (End)

    In my estimation one of the most important documents released by the United States Government is the declassified Wright Patterson 1956 paper on Electogravitics. It’s technical, but it provides a powerful foundation and basis for the technological development timeline to a present day Secret Space Program based on electromagnetic and electrogravitic propulsion and exotic power technologies.

    It also includes the names of corporations that became the major players in the Military Industrial Complex. I have included it in its entirety at the end of this chapter so that it is available to the technically inclined, but the lay person can just skip over it and move to Chapter Three if they like.http://www.padrak.com/ine/INE24.html

    Many researchers believe that this Secret Space Program and its Space Fleet is capable of not only rapid travel about our solar system with bases on the Moon and Mars, but is deep space capable as well as first was indicated by Ben Rich. This is why there has been no overt return to the moon because in the 1960s NASA became little more than an expensive and dangerous cover and public propaganda operation. Several NASA employee whistleblowers have testified to being involved in airbrushing out any and all images of the ET presence from images of the Earth, Moon, Mars and even space.

    There is so much evidence for this Secret Space Program and the Breakaway Civilization in which it is imbedded that I hardly know where to start. Maybe the best place to start would be statements that Ben Rich made in public and in private before he died.

    Ben Rich Lockheed’s CEO Admits on Deathbed: ET/UFO Are Real

    Posted by Xeno on September 14, 2010 http://alien-ufo-sightings.com/2012/05/extraterrestrial-ufo-are-real-ben-rich-lockheed-skunk-works-director-admitted-in-his-deathbed-confession/
    According to article published in May 2010 issue of the MUFON UFO Journal Ben Rich, the “Father of the Stealth Fighter-Bomber” and former head of Lockheed Skunk Works, had released information that extraterrestrial UFO visitors are real and the U.S. Military can travel to the stars.

    What he said might be new to many people today, but he revealed the information before his death in January 1995. His statements helped to give credence to reports that the U.S. military has been flying vehicles that mimic alien craft. The article was written by Tom Keller, an aerospace engineer who has worked as a computer systems analyst for NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

    “Inside the Skunk Works (Lockheed’s secret research and development entity), we were a small, intensely cohesive group consisting of about fifty veteran engineers and designers and a hundred or so expert machinists and shop workers. Our forte was building technologically advanced airplanes of small number and of high class for highly secret missions.”

    “We already have the means to travel among the stars, but these technologies are locked up in black projects, and it would take an act of God to ever get them out to benefit humanity. Anything you can imagine, we already know how to do.”

    “We now have the technology to take ET home. No, it won’t take someone’s lifetime to do it. There is an error in the equations. We know what it is. We now have the capability to travel to the stars. First, you have to understand that we will not get to the stars using chemical propulsion. Second, we have to devise a new propulsion technology. What we have to do is find out where Einstein went wrong.” When Rich was asked how UFO propulsion worked, he said, “Let me ask you. How does ESP work?” The questioner responded with, “All points in time and space are connected? ” Rich then said, “That’s how it works!”

    Lockheed “Skunk Works” former CEO knew the Roswell extraterrestrial UFO influenced designs of Testor model kits for Roswell UFO models, and U.S. top secret aircraft. According to a CNI News report by Colorado resident Michael Lindeman, the design information was derived from forensic illustrations and numerous witness testimonies about the Roswell UFO, provided by William L. “Bill” McDonald.

    In an e-mail, dated July 29, 1999, apparently addressed to Lindeman, McDonald referenced an excerpt of a discussion with Harold Puthoff, founder of the highly classified U.S. “remote viewing” program. McDonald said: “Well Hal, you asked for it! Now that legendary Lockheed engineer and chief model kit designer for the Testor Corporation, John Andrews, is dead, I can announce that he personally confirmed the design connection between the Roswell Spacecraft and the Lockheed Martin Unmanned Combat Air Vehicles (UCAVs), spy planes, Joint Strike Fighters, and Space Shuttles.

    Andrews was a close personal friend of “Skunk Works” CEO Ben Rich — the hand-picked successor of Skunk Works founder Kelly Johnson and the man famous for the F-117 Nighthawk “Stealth” fighter, its “half-pint” prototype the “HAVE BLUE”, and the top-secret F-19 Stealth Interceptor. Before Rich died of cancer, Andrews took my questions to him.

    1. There are 2 types of UFOs — the ones we build and ones ‘they’ build. We learned from both crash retrievals and actual “hand-me-downs.” The Government knew and until 1969 took an active hand in the administration of that information. After a 1969 Nixon “purge”, administration was handled by an international board of directors in the private sector…

    2. Nearly all “biomorphic” aerospace designs were inspired by the Roswell spacecraft — from Kelly’s SR-71 Blackbird onward to today’s drones, UCAVs, and aerospace craft…

    3. It was Ben Rich’s opinion that the public should not be told [about UFOs and extraterrestrials] . He believed they could not handle the truth — ever. Only in the last months of his decline did he begin to feel that the “international corporate board of directors” dealing with the “Subject” could represent a bigger problem to citizens’ personal freedoms under the United States Constitution than the presence of off-world visitors themselves.”

    Lindeman added that “Bill McDonald received the above information from Andrews from 1994 until their last phone call near Christmas in 1998.” Lindeman also noted “It should also be known that Dr. Ben R. Rich attended a public aerospace designers and engineers conference in 1993 before his illness overwhelmed him in which he stated — in the presence of MUFON Orange County Section Director Jan Harzan and many others that – ‘We’ (i.e., the U.S. aerospace community/military industrial complex) had in it’s possession the technology to “take us to the stars”. See the complete letter in May, 2010 MUFON UFO Journal from John Andrews and the hand written reply from Dr. Ben Rich.

    Lockheed Skunkworks Engineer USAF, and CIA Contractor Don Phillips confirms Ben Rich’s statements, “These UFOs were huge and they would just come to a stop and do a 60 degree, 45 degree, 10 degree turn, and then immediately reverse this action”. During the Apollo landing, Neil Armstrong says, “They’re here. They are right over there and looking at the size of those ships., it is obvious they don’t like us being here”. When I was working with the Skunkworks with Kelly Johnson, we signed an agreement with the government to keep very quiet about this.

    Anti-gravitational research was going on. We know that there were some captured craft from 1947 in Roswell, they were real. And, yes, we really did get some technology from them. And, yes, we really did put it to work. We knew each other from what we call an unseen industry. We can term it black, deep black, or hidden.
    The knowledge I have of these technologies came from the craft that were captured here. I didn`t see the craft, nor did I see the bodies, but I certainly know some of the people that did. There was no question that there were beings from outside the planet.

    Are these ET people hostile? Well, if they were hostile, with their weaponry they could have destroyed us a long time ago. We got these things that are handhold scanners that scan the body and determine what the condition is. We can also treat from the same scanner.

    I can tell you personally that we’ve been working on them. And we have ones that can diagnose and cure cancer. One of the purposes I had for founding my technology corporation in 1998 was to bring forth these technologies that can clean the air and can help get rid of the toxins, and help reduce the need for so much fossil fuel. Yes, it is time. I can tell you personally that it has already started. pp. 375, 383.” (End)

    The following is an article I wrote after I first heard the term Solar Warden being used as the alleged code name for the part of the Secret Space Fleet that operates within our solar system. I already had an interest in the Secret Space Fleet and had written material about what I already knew.

    Here is an interesting little ti-bit folks, that Vince White our exopolitical poet in residence sent me yesterday that I think deserves sharing. People that have been following my blog know I have discussed this alleged allied space fleet in some of my articles.

    Forwarded Message: “Subject: Solar Warden Date: 4/5/2009 Dear Jerry: I have verified a little about the Solar Warden that you asked about some time ago. It is the overall project identification for out Space Fleet Carrier program coming out of Regan’s old Star Wars efforts. We apparently have one or more Space Carriers, like Aircraft Carriers at sea, but in deep space, that supports our Space Patrol efforts and house our American built flying discs that require no fuel and operate on free energy.”

    “The STS-58 video clip that was filmed from one of our space shuttles showed such an intercept and that footage was immediately suppressed and resulted in that free video from the shuttles being shut down. Gary McKinnon, the English computer nerd that lived with his mother in London, using a cheap home PC late at night, said that he discovered this project and that he found evidence of three such carriers and their names and numbers and even the names of some of the commanders in those black project files.”

    “Now you can see why our government is spending so much money and political clout to extradite that foreign national to our country for trial in our country for silencing and then elimination. One has to wonder how much it took to persuade the English House of Lords to give him up to us. Regards, W” (End)

    After I posted the two articles on Solar Warden, Open Minds Forum ( OM) management sent the following to me. It would appear that the code name Solar Warden first surfaced at OM before the Gary McKinnon affair. As far as I know Gary did not know of the name Solar Warden.

    “You may come to find the information somewhat shocking and unable to understand as. I pray the Almighty will look out for the inhabitants of this planet as the coming years will bring much misery. I pass on this information in the hope that you, as an unbiased observer, will make sure the public learns the truth.”

    “All space programs are a cover that exists to deceive the people of this world. We have a space fleet, which is code named ” Solar Warden.” There were, as of 2005, eight ships, an equivalent to aircraft carriers and forty-three “protectors,” which are space planes. One was lost recently to an accident in Mars’ orbit while it was attempting to re-supply the multinational colony within Mars. This base was established in 1964 by American and Soviet teamwork. Not everything is, as it seems.”

    “We have visited all the planets in our solar system, at a distance of course, except Mercury. We have landed on Pluto and a few moons. These ships contain personnel from many countries and have sworn an oath to the World Government, also, known as the Bilderbergers. The technology came from back engineering alien-disc wreckage and at times with alien assistance.” (End)

    I think we can begin to build points on a historical timeline from the very strong foundation of the 1956 Declassified Wright Patterson Electrogravitics paper to the present day Secret Space Fleet. One very important point has been presented by Senior Research Engineer Boyd Bushman who worked for Lockheed Martin, Texas Instruments and Hughes Aircraft.

    In October of 2011 he provided evidence to investigators in an interview that by 1959 the U.S. government had already reverse engineered an extraterrestrial spacecraft using a nuclear reactor for propulsion! I mean this was three years after the Wright Patterson Electrogravitics paper was published. It should not be hard for the reader to begin to logically create a time line from 1956 to 1959 to the present super-secret space fleet. 

    There has been speculation and some evidence that the Navy has operational control over the Secret Space Fleet, in a case of fact imitating Star Trek fiction. It is well know that the Navy pretty much has had a monopoly on engineering small compact nuclear reactor power plants for its ships and carriers in its large ocean going fleets. The Navy’s organizational structure is well suited for operating large ocean going fleets. On the other hand the Air Force has experience in the research and development, testing and flying advanced aerospace craft and expertise in aerospace tracking and base support in conjunction with Air Force Space Command.

    One would assume that some kind of working arrangement has been worked out over the years between the Air Force and the Navy. As it the fiction movie Avatar, one would expect the Army and Marines to have operational control of ground operations on Secret colonies and bases on the Moon, Mars and even on other solar systems. A second important point on the historical time line to a Secret Space Fleet and it’s off world bases and colonies using exotic electromagnetic propulsion systems with compact nuclear power plants to provide the huge amounts of electrical power necessary, is the Piney Woods Incident, the Cash-Landrum UFO Case that took place in December of 1980.

    One can speculate from the revelations of Bob Lazar now backed up to some extent by Boyd Bushman and some material in UFO Crash at Aztec, that alien power plants are not that easy to replicate, so these first craft used electromagnetic and electrogravitic off the shelf power plant technologies.

    The Cash-Landrum case has been well researched and has withstood the test of time, and seems to have involved a core meltdown in a super-secret exotic aerospace craft. It was surrounded by military helicopters and it severely irradiated the witnesses involved. The three witnesses sued the U.S. government for damages to their health and the case even went to a Congressional Hearing but the government would not admit responsibility for the incident. 

    Technological Singularity: Beyond the Event Horizon

    While many may not realize, it humanity is a rapidly approaching what is being called a Technological Singularity and I believe the Breakaway Society has already passed beyond that event horizon leading the way for the rest of society to follow. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Technological_singularity

    I and others believe that at the technological singularity boundary the technological rules change just as drastically as the rules of physics change at the boundary of a black hole.http://www.physlink.com/Education/AskExperts/ae251.cfm
    It is at this Technological Singularity where we begin to rewrite our genome and our external reality giving us superhuman powers and intelligence. In a case of monkey see, monkey do, I believe we are copying this process from covert extraterrestrial contact.http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/7681252/ns/health-cloning_and_stem_cells

    A friend of mine at Open Seti suggested to me after reading my article on genome security that my next article should cover the man in the machine or the concept of human machine hybrids.http://surroundingsignifiers.com/2011/03/13/the-future-of-uxui-and-human-machine-integration/ We need to explore what will happen to us and what will we look like when we no longer interface with our computers through keyboard and mouse but through mind-machine interfaces.

    The first step toward a man-machine hybrid as suggested to me by whistleblower Clifford Stone is through a bio-suit loaded with microprocessors and sensors, while the second and final step is integration of these devices into our genetic structure as suggested by Ar Borden. Both individuals claim contact with several ET races. I think the main driver behind the approaching Technological Singularity is extraterrestrial contact.

    While this contact is still being hidden from the public it is filtering out into the public domain accelerating our technological development in ways suggested by Col. Corso in his book, The Day After Roswell. This has happened before in our history with the covert release of newly discovered Chinese technology in the 12th and 13th centuries by the autocrats of the day, so as to preserve their control over the masses. (See next section)

    I think that many of these extraterrestrial races and civilizations now becoming known to us are already in this technological singularity domain, and by association we are ourselves drawn rapidly into the domain as well. Let’s hope we can handle ourselves in a creative rather than a destructive fashion becoming an asset rather than a liability in this domain. I think that this domain is what the Hopi and other Native Americans have foreseen as the Fifth World as described to them by the Sky People in their past. http://www.mondovista.com/flyingshields/http://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/esp_leyenda_hopi21.htm

    I think that the extraterrestrials are shepherding us into this technological or evolutionary singularity for better or for worse, but once there our future is for us to decide, if we will take responsibility for our thoughts and actions.

    ET’s Ignite a Modern Renaissance Similar to China in Europe 600 Years Ago

    I am always interested in discovering historical material that helps to better understand this process of humanities integration into extraterrestrial realities and the nature of information locked up in the Breakaway Society. I stumbled across Gavin Menzies book 1434 in the course of my studies that provide quite a body of evidence suggesting that the European Renaissance was sparked by the overt and covert introduction of advanced Chinese science and technology. This technological transfer from the world’s only real superpower of the period reached its zenith in 1434 when the Chinese fleet that had already explored and mapped the world in 1421 sailed to Italy. http://www.gavinmenzies.net/

    I had read Gavin’s first book 1421 years ago, but the evidence he had collected was a bit flimsy and a fishing expedition of sorts, but since then many more historical scholars have become involved all over the world and a huge body of evidence is building supporting his speculations and initial data. (See evidence section http://www.gavinmenzies.net/evidence.asp ) This is causing a complete rewrite of history for the 1300s and 1400s, even interesting the Smithsonian, and gives us a road-map of the process by which contact with a more technologically developed civilization integrates into a lesser advanced hierarchical society on earth.

    History seems to be once again repeating itself where global rulers are allowing scientific and technological knowledge from extraterrestrial contact to covertly leak out into the public domain for their own benefit, while at the same time suppressing other knowledge that would weaken their hold on power. This exact same process seems to have happened in Europe when the Chinese leaders make contact with European leaders, who supported at the time, severely distorting the historical record as to where these ideas and knowledge originated.

    “On the cover jacket Gavin says, “Florence and Venice of the early fifteenth century were hubs of world trade, attracting traders from across the globe. Based on years of research, this marvelous history argues that a Chinese fleet –official ambassadors of the emperor–arrived in Tuscany in 1434, where they were received by Pope Eugenius IV in Florence.”

    “The delegation presented the influential pope with a wealth of Chinese learning from a diverse range of fields: art, geography (including world maps that were passed on to Christopher Columbus and Ferdinand Magellan), astronomy, mathematics, printing, architecture, steel manufacturing, military weaponry, and more. This vast treasure trove of knowledge spread across Europe, igniting the legendary inventiveness of the Renaissance, including the work of such geniuses as DA Vinci, Copernicus, Galileo and more.”

    This new knowledge uncovered by Gavin Menzies and others clearly shows that learned men with access did not make many of the discoveries attributed to them, but simply copied already existing technological and scientific ideas that had been in use and known in China for hundreds of years. A small part of the huge Chinese fleet sailed to Italy in huge ocean going ships armed with cannon, mortars, exploding bombs, flamethrowers etc. when at the time the European navies were not more that sail and row galleys, armed with archers. One can imagine the shock to the European political and military authorities when they realized they were basically defenseless against such superior military technology. http://www.gavinmenzies.net/pages/evidence-1434/view-chapter.asp?EvidenceID=22

    Not only did this spark the Renaissance; it sparked an arms race to catch up militarily with the Chinese very similar to what we have today after the crashes of extraterrestrial spaceships in the 1930s and 1940s. The Chinese after bankrupting themselves building such a huge ocean going fleet along with other excesses fell rapidly into decline while the Europeans rapidly became the world’s technological power. There are many lessons from the past that are as applicable today as 600 years ago.http://www.gavinmenzies.net/pages/evidence-1434/view-chapter.asp?EvidenceID=3

    I find it interesting that contact between both humans and extraterrestrials seems to always result in genetic mixing of races. In the 1400s there was also a flourishing slave trade of Chinese slaves mostly young girls to Italy, as many as ten thousand a year. http://www.gavinmenzies.net/pages/evidence-1434/content.asp?EvidenceID=47 This resulted in a genetic mixing in Italy that reminds me of the forced genetic mixing going on between earth humans and certain races of aliens today in what I call the abductee alien slave trade. In both cases the autocratic authorities approved and facilitated such abhorrent forms of human trafficking.

    I believe extraterrestrials have ignited a modern global renaissance in science and technology the likes of which has not been seen for 600 years. When the Chinese ignited the Renaissance they were just as alien and technologically advanced in relation to the Europeans as extraterrestrials are to us today. European political, military and religious leaders acted is very similar ways to exploit the technologies involved while at the same time suppressing the real source of the information and other information that would weaken their hold on power.

    In both cases the initial cultural shock was quickly replaced with the emotions of fear and greed. In 1434 the military feared the advanced gunpowder weaponry and naval capabilities of the Chinese that quickly sparked a rapid gunpowder arms race and naval buildup that resulted in the European voyages of discovery and colonization. In 1947 the discovery of extraterrestrial weapons and advanced ET space fleets resulted in a rapid space and arms race resulting in a multi trillion dollar secret space fleet.http://exopolitics.blogspot.com/2009/05/solar-warden-articles.html The greed side of the equation kicks as economic power figures out how the new information could be exploited for the benefit of the ruling classes at the expense of the lower classes.

    In both cases the famous learned men of their time became complicit in cooperating with the ruling classes to suppress certain knowledge and to fraudulently take credit for the inventions and scientific discovers that were not theirs. http://zlandcommunications.blogspot.com/2010/05/carl-sagan-knew-ufos-are-real-confidant.html How this was done 600 years ago is explained in 1434 just as Col. Corso explained how it was done after 1947 in the book, The Day After Roswell.

    For those who would study the evidence accumulated in the book 1434 and on the website, it is obvious that Leonardo DA Vinci, Santini, Taccola, Di Giorgio all took credit for inventions and scientific discoveries that were not their own. Just compare the similarity of the illustrations in chapter 16. Furthermore the laws of celestial mechanics http://www.readinggroupguides.com/guides3/lost_discoveries3.asp#excerpt credited to Copernicus, Kepler and Galileo were know by the Chinese and used to create a very accurate calendar in 1280 for Kublai Khan (page 23 -28) that was later adopted by the Europeans. This calendar required very complex astrological calculations of the earth’s rotation, varying speeds around an elliptical orbit around the sun, etc. The Chinese had even noticed moons around Jupiter visible to the naked eye in certain locations in China in 364 B.C…

    How can we account for such similar political reactions and responses by the authorities of both periods and their learned servants? I think the answer is inherent in autocratic rule that is driven in a large part by fear, deception and greed and is by nature insecure as leaders can fall from power just as quickly as they rise to power. Obviously any democratic or populist countermanding force has been far too weak in both cases to have any significant immediate check on autocratic power and societal exploitation of the technologies involved.

    It remains to be seen if the situation will change over the longer term in regards to extraterrestrial knowledge due to democratic disclosure rumblings and extraterrestrial disclosure activities by the ET’s themselves. If the Chinese source for this advanced scientific and technological knowledge in 1434 could be effectively covered up for 600 years, 60 years seems a very short time. But on the other hand just as Chinese advances in printing technology helped to rapidly integrate Chinese advanced knowledge and fuel the Renaissance, so too the Internet seems to be not only uncovering old Chinese-European secrets but now ET secret classified knowledge is being uncovered and distributed to the public.

    Royal Canadian Air Force Causes UFO Scare Over Lake Ontario

    Social media and local news outlets throughout upstate New York were swamped with reports of strange lights over Lake Ontario on the evening of May 23rd. Just around dusk, a formation of eerie floating lights appeared over the Canadian side of the lake, prompting curiosity from hundreds of local residents.

    Many social media users believed the lights could be drones.

    Many social media users speculated the lights could be drones.

    Eyewitness Kate Caven told local Buffalo news station WIVB that residents throughout the Lake Ontario region were perplexed about the source of the lights, which seemed to hover in the air above the lake:

    Some people were concerned maybe they were distress signals, but we couldn’t see any boats. And then some people mentioned maybe a meteor shower, but again they weren’t really moving. So that’s pretty much what most people were saying other than UFOs or aliens. I joked around with my friend Matt who was with me, if they were coming to take us, I was ready, that that wasn’t a bad way to go out if I could see an alien.

    It sure wouldn’t be, Karen. Shortly after the reports came in, however, the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) claimed responsibility for the sighting. According to an RCAF spokesperson, the lights were training flares dropped by a Hercules Model 8 CCC-130H aircraft in the 424th squadron out of 8 wing Trenton, Ontario, who were conducting a search and rescue exercise in the area.

    Smoke trails can be seen trailing behind each descending flare.

    However, there are some alleged inconsistencies in the RCAF’s story. The RCAF spokesperson’s statement claims the flares were dropped around 9:30 p.m., yet some social media commenters noted that they observed the flares hours earlier. Other commenters noted that the lights appeared to move up and down in the air above the lake. Of course, the mind sometimes sees what it wants to see, and at such a distance, it could be difficult to judge movement.

    After the RCAF claimed similar exercises are routine, some residents wondered why flares aren’t a more common sight.

    Meanwhile, according to a few sources, the U.S. Coast Guard reportedly initially ruled out basic flares as the source of the phenomenon. However, a quick comparison with images of artillery flares indeed shows a clear resemblance to the Lake Ontario lights. While a government UFO cover-up makes for great headlines, this case is likely exactly what the RCAF says it was.

    De reuzenplaneet Jupiter lijkt anders in elkaar te zitten dan aanvankelijk gedacht. Dat blijkt uit eerste resultaten van de Juno-missie waarover is bericht in de wetenschappelijke vakbladen Science en Geophysical Research Letters en waarover betrokken vorsers van de Universiteit van Luik hebben bericht.

    Op 27 augustus 2016 maakte de ruimtesonde Juno een eerste scheervlucht langs Jupiter, de grootste planeet van ons zonnestelsel. Sindsdien gebeurde dit nog vijf keer, en er volgen er nog zeven. Doel is meer te weten te komen over de atmosfeer, het magnetische veld en het inwendige van Jupiter. 

    De eerste resultaten dateren van die eerste omloop. Anders dan sondes die Jupiter eerder hebben verkend, volgt de in augustus 2011 gelanceerde Juno een baan over beide polen van de planeet. De daarbij gemaakte opnames tonen een chaotisch tafereel van heldere ovale structuren: cyclonen met een diameter tot 1400 kilometer. Van de karakteristieke bandenstructuur die de Jupiteratmosfeer op lagere breedten laat zien, is rond de polen niets meer terug te vinden. 

    Zelfde weersysteem als op Aarde
    Thermisch onderzoek van de atmosfeer leerde dat rond de evenaar ammoniak uit de diepte opwelt. Dat duidt op een weersysteem dat wij ook op Aarde kennen: de circulaties waarbij warme lucht bij de evenaar opstijgt en vervolgens richting Noord- en Zuidpool stroomt. Wat zich in het hart van Jupiter afspeelt is echter nog steeds onduidelijk. 

    Voorts is het magnetisch veld rond Jupiter veel sterker dan verwacht: tien keer zoveel als het magnetisch veld rondom de Aarde. Onderzoek van de hele magnetosfeer leert dat de reuzenplaneet een heel andere wisselwerking met zijn omgeving heeft dan onze planeet.

    Paul Davies puts a brake on the idea of a universe teeming with life

    by Andrew Masterson

    Around half a century ago, when NASA's Apollo missions were taking brave men to play golf on the moon, the idea of extraterrestrials was the province of science-fiction authors and acid-tripping dreamers.

    How times change. Today, the press is full of stories about planets and moons, near and far, pregnant with the possibilities of life.

    We read about abundant hydrogen on Saturn's moon Enceladus, a sign, perhaps, of microbial activity. We note another of Saturn's moons, Titan, likely boasts a subterranean ocean, surely the harbour of something twitching.

    Then we thrill to the suggestion that the planet Proxima b, four light years away, could support life if its climate is right. And we wonder, enthralled, about the Trappist-1 system, seven planets orbiting a star 39 light years distant, a couple of which, astronomers tell us, are in just the right orbits to be warm and wet and friendly.

    The expectation now is palpable: surely, within our lifetimes, we will detect at least a bacterium, some weird arsenic-based extremophile by a thermal vent in an underground sea, or a smear of purple anaerobic slime beneath a rock on the edge of a liquid methane lake.

    But is this expectation based on solid science, or romance, or a barely sublimated need to assert that we are not alone in a vast and godless universe?

    "The change is for no reason that I can put my finger on," says Paul Davies. "I've lived through this pendulum swing. Now the whole scientific community is charging down the direction that holds the universe is teeming with life, and I'm now the voice of caution, saying: 'Hold on, hold on, you have no basis for that belief'."

    Davies' objections are not to be lightly dismissed. He is, after all, perhaps the most distinguished astrobiologist alive, not to mention a quantum physicist of such import that two of the field's fundamental constructs bear his name (the Fulling-Davies-Unruh effect, and the Bunch-Davies vacuum state, for those taking notes.)

    Based these days at the University of Arizona's Centre for Fundamental Concepts in Science, he is also the head of the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI) Post-Detection Science and Technology Task Group of the International Academy of Aeronautics.

    And years ago he used to teach at Adelaide and Macquarie universities. So, even though he lives in the United States and was born in England, we can kind of, sort of, claim him as an Aussie. It's not a sustainable claim, of course, but, he would suggest, it has more evidential weight behind it than the notion that the cosmos is crawling with amoeba-things and all that's left to do is find them.

    Back in the '60s, Davies says, most serious astronomers were convinced there were planets throughout the universe, even though technology at the time was insufficient to detect them.

    Indeed, in 1961, an astronomer called Frank Drake came up with an equation to predict the probability of intelligent life emerging anywhere in the universe. In his 2010 book, The Eerie Silence, Davies calls it "not so much an equation in the conventional mathematical sense, more of a way to quantify our ignorance".

    Seven years later, he maintains that we're still thick.

    "Nothing has changed except our expectations," he says. "The big unknown is the fraction of planets on which life emerges, and we have no idea what that number is and no way to quantify it because we don't know what the process was. You can't estimate the odds of an unknown process. We know almost no more about it today than we did in the '60s."

    The difficulty in all this – and perhaps the only point of consensus among astrobiologists – is that we don't know how groups of molecules, non-living matter, coalesce and combine to become living. What is the animating spark? Or, more prosaically, what is the minimum level of complexity for a living organism?

    The main reason for this shortcoming is that the only life we have to study is the stuff found here on Earth. Given that everything, from cholera bacteria to Bactrian camels to Justin Bieber, descended from a single common ancestor, we have a sample size of just one – which is a hopeless number from which to draw generalised conclusions.

    Without another evolutionary tree to compare, Davies points out, we have no idea what aspects of Earth life are specific just to our mob, and what aspects are "law-like" – common to all life right across the universe.

    This is very much his field: he is tasked with examining the fundamentals of science (he also advises space agencies, and pursues cancer research, but let's stick to the big picture here).

    Lately, this work has been taking him in a fascinating, if controversial, direction. In a recently published paper – a sketch, really, for a book he is working on – he and colleague Sara Imari Walker suggest that the real law-like essential for life to emerge anywhere in the universe is not biology or even chemistry, but information.

    The processing of information, the pair wrote, might be the causal agent at the bottom of all life. Things such as water, carbon and DNA might be just local-level stuff, not required by extraterrestrial life forms.

    Davies and Walker also make the point that if their assumption is correct then, even if we do encounter alien organisms, we quite possibly won't recognise them. The problem of life, they conclude, might "ultimately not be reducible to known physical principles".

    "That's principles not yet known, rather than principles that can never be known," Davies is quick to point out. "We're open to the suggestion that there may be new physics that will be uncovered by studying biology. That's different to saying that all of biology can be explained by using physics already known."

    It is entirely reasonable, he says, to define all living things as information-processing systems. It is also reasonable to define them, as physicists do, in terms of energy and matter and the forces that govern their interactions.

    But suggesting the two explanations are simply different ways of expressing the same thing is wrong.

    "Where you can't get away with that is with the origin of life," he says. "Because, somehow, out of blind and purposeless forces at the molecular level, somehow out of that sort of melee, an informational system had to emerge."

    Probing that mystery, he suggests, is where new physics principles will be found.

    Other things, too, may emerge, not the least of which could be a profoundly new discussion around the relationship between science and religion.

    Most of Davies' colleagues are atheists, if for no other reason than because physics seems by definition to exclude the supernatural. He himself, however, has long had a subtler, more nuanced position. In his 1992 bestseller, The Mind of God, he suggested that conscious beings manifest self-awareness in the universe and that, thus, "we are truly meant to be here".

    The use of the word "meant" occasioned much spirited debate, on the not unreasonable grounds that it implied a creative intention – and a creator, perhaps – buried deep in the workings of the cosmos.

    For Davies, however, it is not he but those who work beside him who are falling prey to religious thought – precisely because they believe the universe is teeming with life. "Once we get rid of the idea of miracles, are we happier with the idea of life as a freak accident on one planet alone," he asks, "or are we more comfortable in a universe that is fundamentally bio-friendly?"

    It's a critical question, he points out. The odds of inanimate molecules transforming into living matter are gazillions to one. The odds of it happening more than once are gazillions-squared to one, and the odds of it happening billions of times are infinitesimal.

    For that to come to pass, there has to be something more, a life-friendly principle at work that rises above brute probability.

    "That's a religious position," he says.

    "Now, I would feel very comfortable living in such a universe, knowing that we're not the result of some freak chemical quirk. We would know that we're actually deeply embedded in the great cosmic scheme of things – part of the grand cosmic plan, if you like.

    "So, for me, the notion that life is intrinsically built into the nature of the universe is deeply pleasing, and close to a religious belief. But that's also the reason that I'm so sceptical."

    Paul Davies will be one of the speakers at an event titled Life on Mars: NASA's 2020 Rover Mission, on August 17 at the Sydney Opera House. Tickets on sale now.

    US military training space warriors for 'extraterrestrial conflict'

    The Space Aggressors are not training to fight aliens, rather preparing for a space war with enemy nations.

    By 

    A space aggressor operator at the Schriever Air Force Base, ColoradoUS Air Force

    A real life Independence Day may not be far away. Only this time there is no defined threat the military is working against, although it is about "extraterrestrial combat".

    Space Aggressors is what the US military is calling them, a team of soldiers training at a warehouse near Colorado's Rocky Mountains. Their job is to act like the enemy during mock space battles to help US units prepare for a conflict that may one day extend to outer space.

    "We play the bad guys," Captain Christopher Barnes, chief of training for the 26th Space Aggressor Squadron told the Seeker. "We study threats to the space realm, either coming from space or based on land. If we can't directly replicate them with hardware, then we figure out if there's a software solution or some way we can train people to the point where they can fight through them, if they have to, in a conflict," he says.

    The elite military unit is being prepared to take on what US calls 'very real' threats from space powers like Russia and China. US intelligence chief Dan Coats recently told a Senate hearing that Russia and China are aggressively pursuing space warfare by building anti-satellite weapons, some of which in future could not only destroy US satellites but may even posses the capability to hit targets on land.

    Vice Admiral Charles Richard, deputy commander of U.S. Strategic Command, had told a Washington conference in March that "China is developing an arsenal of lasers, electro-magnetic rail guns, and high-powered microwave weapons to neutralize America's intelligence, communications, and navigation satellites."

    Captain Barnes said some people think space is the Achilles heel for the US because of its heavy reliance on space assets for most everything, from launching missiles to directing warships across the seas. For instance, any damage to the Global Positioning System -- a group of 31 satellites owned by the US government and operated by their US Air Force -- could make the US military to fall back to outmoded tactics, greatly eroding its technological edge over an enemy.

    The army however, stresses that it is not space war yet but like any other unit of the military that has to be ready for any existential threats, a space threat is very real in today's scenario.

    "While we're not at war in space, I don't think we could say we're exactly at peace, either," says Vice Admiral Richard. "We must prepare for a conflict that extends into space."

    Detecting Life In Space: The Red Edge

    Originally published on May 23, 2017 3:52 pm

    The universe's "most interesting star" just started acting up again.

    Known as KIC 8462852, or the WTF star (for "Where's The Flux"), this sun became famous a few years ago for its strange short-lived dips in light output. Its behavior was weird enough that astronomers added "alien megastructures" to the long list of possible explanations for WTF star's changes in brightness. My twitter feed was lighting up this weekend as WTF star started, once again, to show a pronounced diminution.

    The excitement over WTF star is, ultimately, about finding evidence for life on other planets. But even without alien megastructures (which are probably not going to be the explanation), WTF star highlights the remarkable range of ways astronomers might be able to find evidence for life on distant planets.

    Since we'll be staring hard at thousands of these worlds over the next few decades, each kind of life detection method is exciting in its own right. That's why today I want to introduce you to "The Red Edge" (which, also, just sounds pretty cool).

    The story starts with one of space exploration's greatest tragedies.

    Back in 1986, the Space Shuttle Challenger exploded during launch, killing the entire crew. The loss was devastating for so many reasons, but one of its consequences was that the Galileo mission to Jupiter was left without a launch vehicle. The plan had been for it to ride a shuttle into space, where a powerful booster would then send it on to a half-billion-or-so-mile ride to the solar system's largest world. In the aftermath of the Challenger disaster, NASA scientists were forced to launch Galileo using a less powerful booster, placing it onto a complicated trajectory that used the gravity of a number of planets to slingshot the spacecraft out to Jupiter. In particular, Galileo first headed inward to Venus and then back to Earth — twice — picking up speed with each gravity "assist." It was during these Earth-return fly-bys that scientists came to the novel idea of viewing our planet as if it were an alien world.

    The idea was, in part, Carl Sagan's. As Galileo passed by Earth, it trained its instruments on our planet and recorded the light it reflected from the sun. In this way, scientists could run an experiment to see if Earth's light "signal" could reveal the presence of life.

    Of all the features the scientists found in the Earth-light, one of the most important came in the form of a sharp change in our planet's reflectance just past the wavelengths of red light. Reflectance means how much of the sunlight falling on the planet gets bounced back into space. Low reflectance means much of the light is being absorbed, while high reflectance means the opposite. The Galileo data showed that Earth's reflectance depended strongly on the light's color (meaning its wavelength). Most of the light in the visible spectrum was strongly absorbed. But around the wavelength of red light (past a half of a millionth of meter) the reflectance shot up. This wall in the reflectance curve was known from remote sensing studies and was called The Red Edge. In a paper titled "A Search for Life on Earth From The Galileo Spacecraft," Sagan and his co-authors highlighted the planet's absorption and reflection properties as one of four critical pieces of data that confirmed Earth was, in fact, a living world.

    But what causes the Red Edge and why might it be a cosmic life-detector? The answer lies within even the most lowly houseplant.

    Almost all of the world's vegetation will strongly absorb light in the blue and green parts of the spectrum. Much of this is due to photosynthesis, since these are the wavelengths of light plants absorb to make sugars and power their metabolism. At longer wavelengths, the leaves have no need to absorb sunlight, so they've evolved to reflect this light back into space. So what Galileo was seeing as it flew by Earth was the combined absorbing power of an entire planet's worth of vegetation.

    Of course, Sagan and other astronomers knew that what works for Earth may work for alien worlds, too. Maybe we could detect Red Edges in the spectra from other worlds. If so, wouldn't that be proof of alien life and, even better, of full alien biospheres?

    Astronomers are now deep in their "exo-planet" revolution. That means they're learning how to probe the light from these worlds in ways that, in principle, mimic what Galileo did for Earth. The crucial difference, of course, is distance. These planets are light-years away. That means we get just a minute fraction of the light they reflect from their stars. Astronomers must be extremely clever in how they go about their searches for exoplanet Red Edges. That's a challenge they're already working to overcome.

    One early example of of these efforts is a well-regarded paper from 2005 by Sara Seager and collaborators titled Vegetation's Red Edge: A Possible Spectroscopic Biosignature of Extraterrestrial Plants. The team laid out arguments for how the Red Edge might be detected in light from other worlds. They also made the important case that evolution on any planet might lead to some kind of feature like the Red Edge. As they put it, " ... while extraterrestrial 'light-harvesting organisms' have no compelling reason to display the exact same red edge feature as terrestrial vegetation, they might have similar spectroscopic features at different wavelengths than terrestrial vegetation." Thus a Red Edge of some kind, may, perhaps be universal.

    For years now, movies and TV have taught us that the only way to find life in the universe was to directly detect purposeful signals from intelligences on those worlds. With the advent of the exo-planet revolution, a new era has opened. The WTF star raised the issue that we may detect intelligence by the artifacts they leave. Even more important, and more likely, is that we might find evidence of less-evolved forms of life by the imprints they leave on the planet as a whole. The lesson of the Red Edge is that life — even plants — can change planets in ways that might be visible from across the depths of space.

    Houston’s “Alien Hunter” claims to have out of this world proof we are not alone in the universe

    BY 

    HOUSTON -- Houston isn't nicknamed the Space City for nothing! Besides NASA being in our backyard, there's a man in town who calls himself the "Alien Hunter." NewsFix caught up with Darrell Sims who showed us some cool stuff he says came from outer space.

    Sims, a private investigator, claims he was once a G-Man and used those skills to uncover alien abductions.


    "I come from an intelligence background with the Central Intelligence Agency in covert operations," he explained.

    Sims claims to have proof that life really does exist in the Cosmos.

    "We have 1950 cases worldwide," he said. "A lady came back with an implant [which] fell out of her eye in front of her boss at her desk and her boss is the one who made sure I got the implant, which I have with me today."

    Sims got into the business after he says an alien visited him as a child, and kept coming back until he was 17 years old.

    While most recollections of UFO and alien sightings are theoretical, Sims collects and tests physical evidence from those who claim to have had a real alien encounter.

    "A lot of these people do not realize if you've, in fact, had a real life UFO event where the entities actually touched you -  physically taking you. This sort of thing, abduction, whatever they want to call it.....they leave a physical trace on you in the infrared range," he said.

    Black light and infrared are just some of the technologies Sims use to detect traces of alien contact. That technique detects the temperature level on skin and detects a residue that comes from "out of this world."

    "Sometimes the alien entity will leave scars, cuts, lumps, bumps on them that make absolutely no sense," Sims said.

    Does it sound unreal to you? Well, many of Sims' artifacts are featured in museums around the world, including Slovakia, Japan and Roswell, New Mexico.

    "Some of the physical evidence that we've recovered from several abductees, suggests that these entities in fact may be biological and also have a metallic level in their biology," Sims explained.

    Sims showed NewsFix a set of spheres he says a young girl sneezed out after an alien came into her room and sprayed something into her nose.

    So is this space fact of fiction?

    "It doesn't matter what I think, or what anybody thinks. It only matters what we can prove," he said.

    So....are you convinced? Are we really alone out here?

    Photos: Arizona UFO witness describes six hovering discs

    An Arizona witness traveling by train through Apache County reported watching and photographing six hovering, “two-story” objects beaming light to the ground level, according to testimony in Case 83376 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

    The case was reported for the witness – who had the experience on April 14, 2017.

    “My mother was traveling through the Arizona desert via train, on her way to Texas,” she stated.“She was unable to sleep due to movement of the train. She said she was looking out of the cabin window and saw a very bright light that became brighter as the train approached.”

    The witness saw more than one object.

    “She said she then saw six objects hovering side-by-side; close enough to see that each object had two rows of windows. She described them as being ‘two-story.’ She said that they were so bright and that a foggy sort of light was beaming down from underneath each object.”

    The witness attempted to photograph what she was seeing.

    “She frantically reached for her cell phone in time to snap a couple of photos. I, myself, have seen some pretty amazing things in the sky that I can only describe as being extraterrestrial, and she was the biggest skeptic until she seen for herself. She was so excited to share this with me. She is not one to exaggerate or seek attention in anyway. She’s a no BS kind of lady. I know what she saw was genuine. She asked that I share with the UFO community. Enjoy.”

    The witness included three images with the MUFON report, which was filed on April 27, 2017.

    Please be very cautious with UFO photography before investigation analysis is completed. The witness report indicates the objects were a disc shape less than 100 feet away.

    MUFON Arizona Field Investigator Kristine Wulf is investigating. Please remember that most UFO sightings can be explained as something natural or man-made. The above quotes were edited for clarity. Please report UFO activity to MUFON.com.

    End of the world 'warning' - Are eerie trumpet noises from the sky sign of the APOCALYPSE?

    EERIE unexplained noises that have triggered nightmares and fears of the "end of the world" have been recorded.

    The weird, loud noises have been heard across several continents, but have now hit the UK, and scientists cannot agree on the reason for the widespread phenomenon.

    For the past few years increasing numbers of people have posted online videos of themselves witnessing strange unexplained 'trumpet' noises.

    In some cases, the sounds have been accompanied by shaking windows and people being frozen with terror.

    The YouTube videos have been uploaded from as far afield as Germany, Ukraine, Belarus, Australian and North America.

    But, now a worried resident of Derbyshire has contacted his local paper with concerns.

    The reader approached the Derby Telegraph for help after hearing the "strange noise." 

    They tweeted the paper and police asking for an explanation for "trumpet-like booming sounds" which he heard Riddings, near Alfreton.

    Trumpet-Apocalypse

    GETTY

    The noises have been heard across the world with no definitive explanation.

    The reader wrote: "Any idea what the strange noise is over Riddings that's been going on and off all day?"

    Earlier Calvin Kirlew recorded video of a similar noise in Nottingham. 

    Derbyshire Police tweeted back that the incident was "intriguing," but the force was bewildered.

    Aaron Traylor, from Montana in the US, is one of those to have uploaded recordings of the creepy noises to YouTube and claims to have suffered "vivid nightmares" ever since.

    He said: "Since I've been following this worldwide strange sounds phenomenon for some time, the whole 'End of the world' thing popped instantly into my head.

    "What if this was one of those sounds? I had my phone ready to capture the next one just in case. Sure enough, five minutes later the sound had returned."

    However, level-headed Kimberly Wookey, from Terrace in British Columbia, Canada - who first recorded the odd noises in June 2013 and has since caught the weird sounds on camera a number of other times – dismissed fears the sounds signal the end of the world or the arrival of aliens.

    Any idea what the strange noise is over Riddings that's been going on and off all day?

    Derby Telegraph reader

    She has also ruled out trains or building work, believing the cause of the noises may be "geophysical", such as atmospheric pressure or tectonic plates grinding together.

    As yet, there has been no firm breakthrough in attempts to explain the loud 'trumpet' sounds.

    Some scientists have said earthquakes can produce sub-audible sounds while lightning creates eerie noises heard through radio emissions.

    NASA researchers say the planet does make background noises, but people would usually require radio antennas to pick it up.

    Sociology lecturer at the University of Derby and conspiracy theory expert Andrew Wilson told the Derby Telegraph some clips may have been hoaxed, but "such stories have actually been reported for at least 200 years."

    He said: "There is an account from an 1804 book called British Mineralogy, in which the author describes going to Yorkshire and hearing noises in the air. The next day, he found evidence of a meteorite a couple of miles away.

    "There are a wide range of explanations for these sounds. Most of them are put down to unusual, but natural, phenomena such as subterranean earthquakes, thunder without lightning and falling meteors."

    Mr Wilson said, however, conspiracy theories for the mysterious noises have a sociological explanation.

    He said apocalypse fears or alien theories come about when scientific explanations are not obvious, as people become desperate for an explanation.

    He said: "Conspiracy theories offer a very attractive and simple way of viewing that world. But they are flawed, and over-simplified."

    EXCLUSIVE: 4 fighter jets scrambled to 'UFO that entered atmosphere,' claims whistleblower

    A PILOT who claims to have been scrambled to a UFO visitation says he is willing to risk death to get the truth out to the world.

    The anonymous air force man claims to have a recording of the operation he alleges involved three other fighter jet pilots.

    But he claims to have been sworn to secrecy by the Singaporean government who allegedly told him he will face the death penalty if he speaks a word.

    The remarkable claims have been made in a report to the US-based Mutual UFO Network (MUFON), which is the world's largest organisation dedicated to UFO and alien research.

    The alleged whistleblower has given himself the pseudonym John in the report and there is no way of verifying if he is a genuine pilot or not at this stage.

    He said in the report filed yesterday: "My life is in critical danger.

    UFO-Singapore

    GETTY*MUFON

    The man claims to be an air force pilot at risk of death for the leak.

    "Disobeying a direct order from my superior would cause me the death penalty. I hope you understand how urgent and serious this incident is. 

    "I will only had over hard copies of the evidence you need to see and not send this over the internet as I am not sure who else is watching." 

    He claimed to be part of the Republic of Singapore Air Force.

    The pilot added: "Just this morning at 5.20am hours Singapore time, we were given orders to scramble our F15s to intercept a strange looking orb that kept on appearing and disappearing on radar by command control.

    "This object entered Singapore air space at around 5.20am and was hovering for at least two hours before 7.30am. 

    "It is difficult to explain, it kept on appearing and disappearing and re-appearing on another part of our air space."

    "Disobeying a direct order from my superior would cause me the death penalty. I hope you understand how urgent and serious this incident is.

    Alleged whistleblower

    He said there were three other pilots were required to "intercept this orb like thing or whatever the hell you want to call it".

    He said: "In fact, when we landed at Changi Air Base, we were given orders by command not to reveal this incident to anyone.

    "I cannot in good conscience give you my real name over the internet, but give me your number, I will call you directly.

    "I have evidence of the chase itself, I am willing to hand this over to you, a recording of the entire incident between air traffic ground control and the four pilots including myself while in pursuit of this orb." 

    The Singaporean air force does use F15s and the pilot has named a legitimate air base.

    MUFON will investigate the claims, but has previously said that it is hit by several hoax reports which come in from all over the world.

    Sceptics are not convinced by the report and have suggested if the pilot was concerned for his safety he would not have posted it on a database which can be seen online by anyone anywhere in the world, and would have contacted MUFON directly.

    Scott Brando, who runs hoax busting website ufoofinterest.org told Express.co.uk: "This looks like a joke."

    Nigel Watson, author of the UFO Investigations Manual, said: "A UFO that is seen for a long time in the same area of sky, generally indicates that it is a star.

    "Besides a star we might also wonder if a drone or drones were responsible for this activity, or it is just a hoax report?"

    The witness was walking out to their garage and noticing strange lights in the sky. Amazed by what he had seen; he ran inside to get his phone. When he got back out, he saw the lights did not move. He managed to get a photo and send it to a friend. After doing so, he looked up back, but the mysterious lights were not there anymore.

    According to the witness, the unusual lights did not fade gradually or drift off. They were just there one moment and suddenly gone, the witness explained.

    The U.S. Military Has A “Space Aggressor Squadron” Trained for Off-World Warfare

    IN BRIEF
    The Space Aggressor squadrons train other military troops for war in space and determine how to best keep space assets like satellites secure. Although it may sound like science fiction, the threat of extraterrestrial conflict is serious.

    EXTRATERRESTRIAL CONFLICT

    Right now, somewhere in the Rocky Mountains of the American West, there are two teams of Air Force specialists preparing to defend America’s interests — in space. They are the 26th Space Aggressor Squadron (26th SAS) and the 527th Space Aggressor Squadron (527th SAS), and their job consists of training the rest of the military for any possible contingency involving extraterrestrial combat and creating strategies to defend the security of any U.S. interests in space.

    In other words, they play the role of the bad guys on a potentially intergalactic scale, “attacking” and provoking U.S. troops in mock space battles — as foreign countries and any other hostile power looking to threaten America in space. Space Aggressors train troops to make strategic use of space resources, for example by engaging in “brute force jamming,” which uses satellite networks to transmit signals to make any original message unintelligible to outsiders. However, they also train U.S. forces to fight without space resources, such as GPS and satellite communications, to ensure that they can competently fight using inertial navigation systems, compasses, and maps.

    “We study threats to the space realm, either coming from space or based on land,” 26th SAS chief of training Captain Christopher Barnes told Seeker. “If we can’t directly replicate them with hardware, then we figure out if there’s a software solution or some way we can train people to the point where they can fight through them, if they have to, in a conflict.”

    SECURITY IN SPACE

    Space Aggressors launch simulated attacks and training exercises, but these space “games” are in response to security threats that are very serious. Modern American warfare and defense are almost completely reliant upon our GPS system, which basically consists of a chain of 31 satellites. In recent years, high-ranking officials in the U.S. military have argued that more preparation for space defense is essential, especially in light of the development of anti-satellite weapons in China and Russia. If taking out satellites effectively renders our troops helpless, it is a smart strategy for enemies to adopt.


    Furthermore, the threat would stretch far beyond the battlefield, as Ed Morris, the executive director of the Office of Space Commerce, wrote in the report, A Day Without Space: Economic and National Security Ramifications: “If you think it is hard to get work done when your Internet connection goes out at the office, imagine losing that plus your cell phone, TV, radio, ATM access, credit cards, and possibly even your electricity.”

    The threat of warfare and aggression in space — and the need to prepare for it — has been broadly recognized all over the world. An international group of lawyers is now drawing up the first body of law to be applied in space. Based largely on existing principles of international law, the work that results from the coalition’s efforts will be called Manual on International Law Applicable to Military Uses of Outer Space (MILAMOS).

    How it will apply to Earth’s various nations is as yet undecided, but for it to work, nations like the United States will have to choose to participate. Much like the United Nations, without participation and commitment from member states, international law — whether applied on Earth or in space — is unlikely to prove effective.

    NASA’s Newest Mars Rover Will Focus on Finding Evidence of Ancient Martian Life

     
    IN BRIEF
    NASA has release pictures of an artist's concept of their new Mars 2020 rover. The robot will land on the Red Planet in 2020 to look for evidence of ancient microbial life.

    ROVER’S NEW TRICKS

    NASA has released pictures of its newest robot scheduled to be sent to the Red Planet in 2020. The images show an artist’s concept of the rover at work on the surface of Mars. The design of the robot has not changed significantly since Curiosity, but this new rover will have a completely different mission than the models before it.

    The Mars 2020 rover’s mission will be to search for signs of ancient Martian life. Scientists have been discovering more evidence of ancient life on the Red Planet from photographs taken of certain areas on the surface, and the rover will land on that location in search of tangible evidence. “The mission takes the next step by not only seeking signs of habitable conditions on Mars in the ancient past but also searching for signs of past microbial life itself,” explains NASA in a statement.

    The statement also goes into how the rover will accomplish this. “The Mars 2020 rover introduces a drill that can collect core samples of the most promising rocks and soils, and set them aside on the surface of Mars. A future mission could potentially return these samples to Earth.”

    NOT FAR BEHIND

    Elon Musk’s space travel company SpaceX has its own plans regarding the Red Planet as well. Initial plans are for the company to begin unmanned missions to Mars in 2018 and follow those up by sending humans in 2025. The long-term vision is to colonize Mars to make humanity the first known multi-planetary species.

    Unlike the contentious nature of the last space race, NASA does not feel that it is in competition with SpaceX (or any other commercial space organization) to get to Mars first. NASA recognizes the value that private enterprise can have on expediting the innovation necessary to put a human on Mars.

    “It’s really important to create, bring some empathy to the table,” Thomas Zurbuchen, NASA’s associate administrator for science, said in an interview with Seeker. “There’s a lot of stuff that can be learned by just talking to people.”

    Perhaps the Mars 2020 rover will unlock some of the secrets that will make it easier for humans to colonize the planet.

    Mining the Moon for Rocket Fuel Could Help Us Reach Mars

     
    IN BRIEF
    Recently, there has been a re-sparking of interest in the moon. The closest celestial body to our planet could hold some novel benefits for humans such as being cultivated as a jumping-off point for future space travel.

    BACK TO THE MOON

    Forty-five years have passed since humans last set foot on an extraterrestrial body. Now, the moon is back at the center of efforts not only to explore space, but to create a permanent, independent space-faring society. The Conversation

    Planning expeditions to Earth’s nearest celestial neighbor is no longer just a NASA effort, though the U.S. space agency has plans for a moon-orbiting space station that would serve as a staging ground for Mars missions in the early 2030s. The United Launch Alliance, a joint venture between Lockheed Martin and Boeing, is planning a lunar fueling station for spacecraft, capable of supporting 1,000 people living in space within 30 years.

    Billionaires Elon MuskJeff Bezos and Robert Bigelow all have companies aiming to deliver people or goods to the moon. Several teams competing for a share of Google’s US$30 million cash prize are planning to launch rovers to the moon.

    We and 27 other students from around the world recently participated in the 2017 Caltech Space Challenge, proposing designs of what a lunar launch and supply station for deep space missions might look like, and how it would work.

    THE RAW MATERIALS FOR ROCKET FUEL

    Right now all space missions are based on, and launched from, Earth. But Earth’s gravitational pull is strong. To escape Earth’s gravity, a rocket has to be traveling 11 kilometers a second – 25,000 miles per hour!

    Any rocket leaving Earth has to carry all the fuel it will ever use to get to its destination and, if needed, back again. That fuel is heavy – and getting it moving at such high speeds takes a lot of energy. If we could refuel in orbit, that launch energy could lift more people or cargo or scientific equipment into orbit. Then the spacecraft could refuel in space, where Earth’s gravity is less powerful.

    The moon has one-sixth the gravity of Earth, which makes it an attractive alternative base. The moon also has ice, which we already know how to process into a hydrogen-oxygen propellant that we use in many modern rockets.

    ROVING LUNA

    NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter and Lunar Crater Observation and Sensing Satellite missions have already found substantial amounts of ice in permanently shadowed craters on the moon.

    Those locations would be tricky to mine because they are colder and offer no sunlight to power roving vehicles. However, we could install big mirrors on the craters’ rims to illuminate solar panels in the permanently shadowed regions.

    Rovers from Google’s Lunar X Prize competition and NASA’s Lunar Resource Prospector, set to launch in 2020, would also contribute to finding good locations to mine ice.

    IMAGINING A MOON BASE

    Depending on where the best ice reserves are, we might need to build several small robotic moon bases. Each one would mine ice, manufacture liquid propellant and transfer it to passing spacecraft. Our team developed plans to accomplish those tasks with three different types of rovers. Our plans also require a few small robotic shuttles to meet up with nearby deep-space mission vehicles in lunar orbit.

    An artist’s rendering of lunar rover concepts. Sung Wha Kang (RISD), CC BY-ND

    One rover, which we call the Prospector, would explore the moon and find ice-bearing locations. A second rover, the Constructor, would follow along behind, building a launch pad and packing down roadways to ease movements for the third rover type, the Miners, which actually collect the ice and deliver it to nearby storage tanks and an electrolysis processing plant that splits water into hydrogen and oxygen.

    The Constructor would also build a landing pad where the small near-moon transport spacecraft we call Lunar Resupply Shuttles would arrive to collect fuel for delivery as newly launched spacecraft pass by the moon. The shuttles would burn moon-made fuel and would have advanced guidance and navigation systems to travel between lunar bases and their target spacecraft.

    A GAS STATION IN SPACE

    When enough fuel is being produced, and the shuttle delivery system is tested and reliable, our plan calls for building a gas station in space. The shuttles would deliver ice directly to the orbiting fuel depot, where it would be processed into fuel and where rockets heading to Mars or elsewhere could dock to top up.

    The depot would have large solar arrays powering an electrolysis module for melting the ice and then turning the water into fuel, and large fuel tanks to store what’s made. NASA is already working on most of the technology needed for a depot like this, including docking and fuel transfer. We anticipate a working depot could be ready in the early 2030s, just in time for the first human missions to Mars.

    To be most useful and efficient, the depot should be located in a stable orbit relatively near both the Earth and the moon. The Earth-moon Lagrangian Point 1 (L1) is a point in space about 85 percent of the way from Earth to the moon, where the force of Earth’s gravity would exactly equal the force of the moon’s gravity pulling in the other direction. It’s the perfect pit stop for a spacecraft on its way to Mars or the outer planets.

    LEAVING EARTH

    Our team also found a fuel-efficient way to get spacecraft from Earth orbit to the depot at L1, requiring even less launch fuel and freeing up more lift energy for cargo items. First, the spacecraft would launch from Earth into Low Earth Orbit with an empty propellant tank.

    Then, the spacecraft and its cargo could be towed from Low Earth Orbit to the depot at L1 using a solar electric propulsion tug, a spacecraft largely propelled by solar-powered electric thrusters.

    This would let us triple the payload delivery to Mars. At present, a human Mars mission is estimated to cost as much as US$100 billion, and will need hundreds of tons of cargo. Delivering more cargo from Earth to Mars with fewer rocket launches would save billions of dollars and years of time.

    A BASE FOR SPACE EXPLORATION

    Building a gas station between Earth and the moon would also reduce costs for missions beyond Mars. NASA is looking for extraterrestrial life on the moons of Saturn and Jupiter. Future spacecraft could carry much more cargo if they could refuel in space – who knows what scientific discoveries sending large exploration vehicles to these moons could enable?

    By helping us escape both Earth’s gravity and dependence on its resources, a lunar gas station could be the first small step toward the giant leap into making humanity an interplanetary civilization.

    Editor’s Note: This story was updated to clarify the distinction between escape velocity and the velocity needed to achieve orbit.

    Listening to starlight: Our ongoing search for alien intelligence

    If ET is out there, he's doing a great job hiding from us.

    by Andrew Tarantola@terrortola

    Six hours a day, seven days a week, for four straight months. That's how long radio astronomer Frank D. Drake pointed the 26-meter telescope at the National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO) research facility in Green Bank, West Virginia, towards the heavens, looking for signs of intelligent life beyond Earth. He dubbed his efforts Project Ozma, in honor of the Queen of Oz from L. Frank Baum's famed children's book series.

    Between April and July of 1960, Drake recorded some 150 hours of tape speckled with radio noise. While no meaningful encoded signals or patterns emerged from those readings, Drake still earned himself a place in history for performing what would become the first scientific search for extraterrestrial intelligence in the modern era.

    Since then, research organizations around the world have performed nearly 100 SETI (search for extraterrestrial intelligence) experiments. Even NASA got in on the hunt, working with the SETI Institute between 1988 and 1993, when Sen. Richard Bryan (D - Nevada) introduced an amendment that cut the program's government funding.

    "Senators kind of looked at this line item and said, 'Hey wait a minute. Are we are we paying to search for little green men?'" explained Steve Croft, an assistant project astronomer at the UC Berkeley SETI Research Center and researcher with the Breakthrough Discovery project. "That's kind of a laugh factor which has always come along with it."

    But as the next generation of telescopes come online, like the upcoming Webb Space Telescope or dedicated planet hunter the Kepler Telescope, the scientific community is beginning to warm to the idea of SETI as not just a valid scientific discipline but an essential one. "I think people are kind of coming around to the idea that SETI as a scientific endeavor is one that's worth pursuing," Croft added. Especially, "when we can answer a scientific question or attempt to answer the scientific question are we alone in the universe?"

    The SETI Institute of California is trying to do just that. The 33-year-old organization formed in 1984 with the mission of understanding the origins and nature of life in the universe. It employs 120 staffers, 75 of whom are PhD-level researchers, and conducts research among 22 fields of inquiry over seven branches of research: astronomy and astrophysics, geoscience, exoplanets and exploration, exobiology and SETI.

    SPACE ALIENS

    The SETI Institute's Allen Telescope Array -

    For its SETI efforts, the Institute relies on radio and optical telescopes. On the radio side, the Institute leverages its Allen Telescope Array (ATA), a 42-dish setup located at Hat Creek Radio Observatory, nearly 300 miles Northeast of San Francisco. It can scan 4 octaves of radio frequency and generates roughly 55 TB of data every day. Unlike conventional radio telescopes used for radio astronomy, the ATA scans a broader swath of the radio spectrum, albeit at a lower sensitivity.

    The group is also working with Paul Horowitz, a physicist and electrical engineer at Harvard, to develop "all sky all the time optical SETI survey systems" where the ATA would perform wide surveys of the sky while other, more sensitive telescopes -- like the Lick -- would follow up with more focused surveys covering a smaller portion of sky.

    For its optical surveys, the Institute splits its time between the UC Berkeley's Lick Observatory and the Harvard Haystack telescope. These telescopes are looking for laser emissions, specifically. These could be from any number of alien sources including communication arrays, weapon tests or transportation (hello, laser sails). "But in any case a monochromatic high-intensity highly focused coherent beam of light would be a fairly indicative sign of technology that could potentially be seen from very far away," Bill Diamond, CEO of the SETI Institute explained.

    However, both the radio and optical instruments have noticeable limitations. While humankind is theoretically capable of blasting a laser beam into space that is 10,000 times stronger than the sun, Diamond continued, "there isn't an instrument on Earth that can detect an Earth-like planet with Earth-like leakage of electromagnetic radiation." This leakage refers to the general emission of radio signals a civilization gives off through its various technologies, rather than powerful, highly focused signals intentionally designed to get another planet's attention. And while using overlapping technologies, as in the case of the SETI Institute-Horowitz collaboration, can boost our relative capabilities, it's still not good enough to intercept complex communications that rely on, say, wideband carrier signals.

    "We don't want to make too many assumptions about the kind of signals that an extraterrestrial civilization might be sending," Croft said. "It might not be kind of a simple tone. You know a transmission which is a single frequency will have a drifting tone because it is on a planet that's going around a star." [Thanks, Doppler effect - ed] Who knows, maybe Frank Drake did find an alien message in that radio static but it's encoded in a manner that researchers haven't yet been able to identify and decipher. "They might be sending some kind of complicated data; we make all sorts of complicated transmissions ourselves as humans," Croft concluded.

    This technological wall has spurned SETI researchers to seek out more effective means of scouring the galaxy. In the case of Berkeley's Breakthrough Listen project, that involved securing a 10-year, $100 million funding grant from Yuri Milner, a Russian entrepreneur, and physicist Stephen Hawking. This money will be used to buy time on two of the world's most powerful telescopes (the Green Bank in West Virginia and the Parkes in Australia).

    The Robert C. Byrd Green Bank Telescope is the world's largest fully steerable radio telescope.

    "We are in a position with the telescopes that we would be able to detect transmissions at a level that is similar to what we ourselves as humans generate," Croft said. "As of right now we're kind of relying on the fact that if civilizations are out there that they're broadcasting to higher power than we are. But we're not very far off being able to detect human-like emissions." Hopefully, as the Square Kilometer Array comes online in Australia and South Africa, that will actually happen.

    Over the past 18 months, the Breakthrough Listen Initiative has also teamed with the SETI@Home project, run by a team from UC Berkeley, to process a portion of the data generated each day. SETI@Home launched in 1999 as a means of distributing the computational workload that analyzing dozens of terabytes of radio signal data generated by the Arecibo telescope across hundreds of thousands of personal desktop computers. "Actually Berkeley and the SETI Institute have a long history together," Diamond said. "Berkeley was involved with us in the very early days of developing the Allen Telescope Array, so we go back a long time. "

    The program currently only has around 150,000 volunteers (down from a peak of 1.5 million users) and "we're getting back into our problem again in that the telescope can generate far more data than we can analyze with the best sensitivity," said Dr. Eric Korpela, head of the SETI@Home project.

    The Breakthrough Listen Initiative has a "pipeline" that divides 1 GHz of spectrum into 3hz channels (330 million in total) that are scanned for potential signals. You want the channels to be as narrow as possible in order to maximize the sensitivity, however, as both the Earth and whatever exoplanet the telescope is looking at move through their respective solar systems, signals tend to "drift" in frequency. "You want to use computer power to correct for that motion," Korpela explained, although the process is incredibly CPU-intensive. But that's exactly what SETI@Home is trying to do.

    However, even with the million-odd CPU cores at SETI@Home's disposal, analyzing all that data is still slow going. Its volunteers only account for around 2 percent of the Breakthrough Listen Initiative's analytical power. The program simply doesn't have enough volunteers to keep up with the demand. And the fact that many people have ditched their desktops for mobile devices is not helping either.

    "It is an issue that we worry about," Korpela admitted. "We do have an app for Android. The processors that are in a typical phone right now are not comparable with what are in most desktops, but they're certainly better than a processor from 1999." The app is currently running on 22,000 volunteer mobile devices, or around 15 percent of the total base. However, these devices are only contributing 2.3 TFLOP/s of processing, 0.5 percent of the program's total computational power. As such, SETI@Home doesn't face a technological hurdle in accelerating its search for intelligent extraterrestrial life so much as a societal one.

    "But given that there are a couple billion Android devices out there," Korpela mused, "there are another 200 petaFLOP/s out there that we haven't tapped yet." The SETI@Home team hopes to garner new interest in their efforts when they release their report from the Breakthrough Listen Initiative this fall.

    As for the SETI Institute, its technological roadblocks are being resolved with upgrades -- and lots of them. The research group is looking to expand the number of dishes in the Allen Array from 42 to at least 128 in the near term before eventually growing it to more than 300 dishes. The Institute is also improving the sensitivity of its feeds -- the antennas that take the collected radio signals from the dishes and convert them into digital signals -- as well as their frequency response and converting the whole feed system to run cryogenically. "That improves the signal-to-noise ratio," Diamond explained "since heat generates radio noise." Finally, the Institute is looking to upgrade the antennas' backend to enable them to sample more parts of the night sky -- expanding from current 3-beam system up to 12.

    "But even those enhancements probably don't get us to the point of being able to detect Earth-like leakage," Diamond lamented.

    That's why the SETI Institute is teaming with IBM to apply the company's advanced machine learning algorithms to the Institute's massive data archive. The Institute is already the only SETI group that performs real-time analysis of its collected signals, using fast Fourier transform to look for narrow-band carrier signals that would indicate a non-natural source. The Apache Spark cluster computing tools, however, "have the ability to extract, if it exists, from patterns that, to us, would otherwise look like radio noise," Diamond said. "It's given us the ability to actually do experiments that we've never been able to do before, including possibly detecting an Earth-like planet that's just emitting leakage."

    Essentially, the Institute can point the ATA at a known exoplanet (or system like TRAPPIST-1), measure the star system's radio signature, then wait for the planet to transit behind the sun and measure the system's radio signature again. If there's a significant difference in the readings, that could mean there's something afoot on that exoplanet. The Institute wouldn't necessarily be able to understand what's encoded in the transmission but it would provide strong impetus for other astronomical research groups to follow up with their own observations. This is actually very close to what the Breakthrough Listen Initiative team is doing, albeit with a less sensitive piece of equipment.

    And while the SETI Institute (as well as the Breakthrough Listen Initiative and SETI@Home, for that matter) can't say for sure when humanity will find life outside of our own, the group is already cultivating interest in the subject with the next generation. The SETI Institute is sponsoring an IBM hackathon this June -- they're giving teams from around the world access to ATA data as well as to IBM's machine learning tools. The competition will finish up with a live event in San Francisco come August. For now, though, we're still alone (as far as science knows).

    Leaked footage from top-secret Area 51 military base shows mysterious ALIEN craft, claim UFO hunters

    • The strange video appears to show a flying object hovering in the sky
    • The craft emits a strange light as it sporadically moves side to side 
    • The footage was believed to have been filmed in the 1980s or 1990s
    • Nevada-based military facility has been a focal point of  conspiracy theorists
    • UFOlogists have long claimed the base houses secretive alien technology

    Area 51 is one of the most secretive locations in the world.

    Now, UFO hunters at SecureTeam 10 have released leaked footage which they claim shows an alien craft is hiding in the Nevada-based military facility.

    The strange video appears to show a flying object hovering in the sky and then flying away - emitting a strange light as it sporadically moves side to side.

    SECURETEAM 10 CONTROVERSY

    SectureTeam10 is one of the most viewed YouTube channels, with over 785,000 people subscribing to its conspiracy videos.

    But the channel has come under fire, as Lions Ground, a rival channel, claims that it has been intentionally fooling its viewers.

    According to Lions Ground, SecureTeam10 has been raking in an estimated £600 ($745) a day by posting fake videos that 'outsmart UFO believers.' 

    'It's one of the mysterious pieces in UFOlogy', said Tyler Glockner who runs SecureTeam 10 on the YouTube clip. 

    He described the footage, which was believed to have been filmed in the 1980s or 1990s, as a 'hidden gem'.

    The unexplained object appears to be getting higher and higher and releases a strange light as the footage goes on.  

    The Nevada-based military testing facility has been a focal point of many conspiracy theorists and UFOlogists since the late 1970s, who claim that the base houses secretive alien technology. 

    The sprawling military complex sits between a dry lake bed to the North East, and a small mountain to the West. 

    Area 51 has been a hot spot for extra terrestrial enthusiasts because the government did not acknowledge its existence until 2013.




    It has long been fenced off from the prying eyes of the public, with armed guards swarming the surrounding area.

    'Area 51 has always been a magnet for those who believe the US Government knows a lot more about UFOs than they are prepared to reveal to the public,' Nigel Watson, author of the UFO Investigations Manual, told MailOnline.

    'People like the late Boyd Bushman, a senior scientist who worked for Lockheed Martin, have declared that Area 51 is a base where extraterrestrial spacecraft and technology is stored and examined.'

    Claims of alien conspiracies around Area 51 have largely been debunked.

    But the site has been confirmed as a historic test site for military aircraft. 

    Famous machines developed there include the U-2 spy plane, SR-71 Blackbird, and the F-117A Nighthawk stealth fighter.

    World's Largest Aircraft Completes Successful Test Flight

    It's a plane, it's a blimp … it's the world's largest aircraft.

    A massive airship dubbed the Airlander 10 recently completed a successful test flight, bringing the helium-filled behemoth one step closer to commercial use.

    Though it looks like a massive blimp, the Airlander 10 combines technology from airplanes, helicopters and airships. It is designed to stay aloft at altitudes of up to 20,000 feet (6,100 meters) for up to five days when manned, according to Hybrid Air Vehicles, the company that built the aircraft. And at a mammoth 302 feet (92 m) long, it is the largest aircraft currently flying. [In Photos: Building the World’s Largest Airship (Airlander 10)]

    On May 10, the Airlander 10 flew for a total of 180 minutes to test the aircraft's handling, improved landing technology and more, according to Hybrid Air Vehicles. This was only the third flight of the Airlander 10. It first debuted as HAV-304, and successfully flew in 2012 as part of the U.S. Army’s Long Endurance Multi-intelligence Vehicle program. The reimagined and modified Airlander 10 made its maiden voyage in August 2016, kicking off a flight test program to assess the aircraft's performance and attempting to fly the airship farther away from its base in Cardington, England.

    This latest flight had two main objectives, beyond safely completing a takeoff, flight and landing. The first was to determine how the Airlander handles, including the aircraft's new, additional "landing feet" that make up the Auxiliary Landing System (ALS). The second was to collect data on the flight's performance, such as airspeed, according to Hybrid Air Vehicles.

    During the successful test flight, the Airlander 10 "handled superbly," said Dave Burns, the Airlander 10's chief test pilot. A statement from Hybrid Air Vehicles said the flight test team was "very pleased" with its initial analysis of the Airlander 10.

    Hybrid Air Vehicles said the Airlander 10 could one day be used for search and rescue missions, by border control agents, for crowd monitoring, security, filming or academic research.

    "There will also be passenger variants for the ultimate flying experience and eventually Hybrid Air Vehicles will fulfil a crucial role in point-to-point cargo transportation to remote areas," company officials said in a statement.

    Robo-Venus Flytrap Could Help Bots Grasp Objects

    An artificial Venus flytrap can open and then close on cue, just like its namesake in nature, according to a new study. Scientists said this flexible gripping device could give soft robots a way to grasp and release objects autonomously, without the need for programming or computer-controlled parts.

    "If you want to make something intelligent, oftentimes it's made using computers and some control circuitry that incorporates sensors and detectors. You have a system with many different pieces that have to be integrated to make the device work," said the study’s lead researcher Arri Priimagi, an associate professor of chemistry and bioengineering at Tampere University of Technology in Finland. [Biomimicry: 7 Clever Technologies Inspired by Nature]

    The team tried to make this simpler he told Live Science.

    Priimagi and his colleagues described their device in a study published online today (May 23) in the journal Nature Communications.

    Although the device could serve in a range of applications, from biomedical manipulators to microchip-assembly lines to warehouse robots that stock shelves, Priimagi said he hasn't devoted much time to thinking about how the technology might be used.

    "This wasn't application-driven," he said.

    In nature, the carnivorous Venus flytrap waits with its jaw-like leaves open until an insect descends to drink from a nectar gland inside the plant. Last year, a study published in the journal Current Biology by researchers at the University of Würzburg in Germany, showed that the plant doesn't react instantly if a fly lands on it. Instead, hair-like sensors inside the flytraps' leaves need to be triggered twice in 20 seconds for the jaws to close, and five times to trigger the production of digestive enzymes, the scientists found.

    Priimagi's gripper doesn't trap or ingest insects, but it does use a stimulus in order to close its trap, he said. What's more, the power source, sensors and devices that convert energy into motion are combined into one simple device.

    The device has two main components: an optical fiber stem and a leaf made from a light-responsive liquid crystal elastomer. When open, the leaf and the fiber form a capital letter "T."

    When light in the fiber-optic stem shines up through the leaf and out into the air, it creates a cone-shaped beam. If an object passes into the beam, light scatters back to the bendy leaf, triggering molecules inside the material that respond by changing shape. This changing of shape generates heat, causing the molecules to misalign, and this creates a bend in the elastomer. The leaf closes, opening when the light is turned off.

    The leaf is tiny: a strip measuring no longer than 0.4 inches (1 centimeter) and thinner than a strand of human hair. But because it's made of soft material that becomes even softer when it heats up a bit, the leaf's gripping strength is high, the researchers said. It's able to grasp objects that have a mass hundreds of times higher than itself, the scientists added.

    In lab experiments, the team showed that the device could grab objects of any shape, including round or square objects, as well as random bits of Styrofoam and thin sheets covered with reflective material, such as aluminum foil. The scientists used lasers for the study, but Priimagi said they could do the same with LEDs or even with white light.

    "We just need light and optical fibers," he said.

    Priimagi said his team has more work to do, such as experimenting with different colors of light, finding ways to move heavier objects and making the device snap shut more quickly, the way a real Venus flytrap does.

    STEEDS MEER UFO'S BIJ CHEMTRAILS ( VIDEO )

    Vorig jaar begonnen eigenlijk de eerste meldingen binnen te komen van UFO’s die zich ophielden in de buurt van chemtrails. 

    Dat schijnen geen incidenten te zijn geweest, want ze worden nu op meerdere plaatsen gesignaleerd in de buurt van vliegtuigen die enorme “vliegtuigstrepen” achter laten. 



    Wanneer er eens een keer een UFO wordt gesignaleerd in de buurt van een chemtrail, dan zou je nog van toeval kunnen spreken. Komt dit echter op regelmatige basis voor, dan zit er wellicht een bepaalde reden achter waarom ze dit doen. 

    Na een aantal meldingen vorig jaar zijn er nu weer twee binnen een tijdsbestek van enkele weken. En dat zijn natuurlijk alleen nog maar de UFO’s die zijn opgemerkt in de buurt van chemtrails, want ook dat is niet altijd even gemakkelijk. 

    Er zijn nu zoveel waarnemingen, dat we vergissingen kunnen uitsluiten en dat roept natuurlijk de bekende vragen op: wie zijn het en wat willen ze? 

    De eerste melding is afkomstig van Mufon (nummer 83933) en het betreft hier een man uit de Engelse plaats Newton Abbot, die zegt dat hij op 22 mei naar buiten in de tuin ging omdat het een mooie zonnige dag was. 

    Hij keek naar de lucht waar regelmatig vliegtuigen over kwamen, maar daar zag hij verder geen bijzondere dingen. Newton Abbot ligt niet ver van het vliegveld van Execter, dus het betrof dan waarschijnlijk aankomend of vertrekkend verkeer van dat veld. 

    Op een gegeven moment werd zijn aandacht getrokken door een vliegtuig dat veel hoger vloog en volgde dit. 

    Toen zag hij plotseling een vreemd onbekend object dat zich richting het passagierstoestel begaf. Of beter gezegd, het bewoog zich naar de enorme chemtrail achter het vliegtuig en vloog hierlangs en haalde het als het ware in. 

    Op gelijke hoogte aangekomen, bleef het met dezelfde snelheid vliegen voor een tijdje en verloor toen kennelijk belangstelling, want het boog af en verdween met grote snelheid. 

    Deze UFO heeft volgens de getuige de grootte van het passagiersvliegtuig, maar hij merkte ook op dat er zich op een gegeven moment kleine zwarte bollen losmaakten van de UFO. Het hoe en waarom daarvan is een raadsel. 

    Hierna volgen de opnames die deze man wist te maken:


    xxx

    xxx

    Een vergelijkbaar verhaal deed zich onlangs voor in Polen. Ook daar filmt iemand een vliegtuig met daarachter een enorme chemtrail. 

    Ook daar zie je op een gegeven van rechtsboven een UFO naar beneden duiken richting chemtrail, alsof het wil onderzoeken welke ellende daar in het luchtruim wordt gesproeid. 

    Net zoals wat de getuige in Engeland beschrijft, lijkt het alsof degene die deze UFO’s onder controle heeft ronduit nieuwsgierig is. 

     

    Anderzijds was er vorig jaar natuurlijk die spectaculaire opname van een UFO die als het ware een chemtrail opeet. 

    Vooralsnog blijft het een mysterie wie of wat deze UFO’s zijn, waar ze vandaan komen, wie ze controleert en vooral ook waarom ze zoveel belangstelling hebben voor chemtrails. 

    Duidelijk lijkt dat zij zich meer zorgen maken over wat er in onze atmosfeer terechtkomt, dan dat de meesten hier op aarde dat doen. In dit artikel tref je een lijst van stoffen en hun schadelijke effecten op de gezondheid van flora en fauna.

    New Crop Circle May Be Connected to the Cerne Abbas Giant

    A new crop circle which appeared this week in Dorset, England, is unusual not so much for its shape but for its close proximity to the mysterious hill figure known as the Cerne Abbas Giant and the earthworks called the Trendle or Frying Pan. Are these new and old (although that’s a subject of debate) formations related?

    The website Crop Circle Connector provides an excellent drone video and close-up photographs of the crop circle. Both show details of the swirls left when whoever or whatever knocked down the wheat to create the pattern. The pattern itself is pretty simplistic compared to the more complex crop circles that tend to get them all of the attention. The comments section of the website contains an analysis by well-known crop circle expert Dr. Horace Drew, who claims he can decode crop circles, says many of them contain messages from aliens and human time travelers and professes that he can identify man-made (by today’s humans) crop circles.

    Dr. Drew says this one is “paranormally real” (not man-made) and gives comparisons to its shape and various religious symbols. The intersecting circles looks like a Vesica Piscis, a symbol for Christ, and the almond-shaped intersection is a popular framing device for surrounding religious icons in many religions. So in this case, the shape could be a symbol of Christ emitting rays – another popular picture.

    Interpretations of the crop circle provided by Dr. Drew

    However, the religious aspects don’t necessarily fit with the crop circle’s close proximity to the Cerne Abbas Giant – whose looks and history are as controversial as many crop circles. The most well-known features of the crushed chalk outline of a large naked man are his large erection and his large club – that’s not a redundancy. While some have tried to date the figure back to Roman times because of its resemblance to Hercules, it’s not mentioned in historical documents until the late 17th century. An interesting theory is that it may be a satirical drawing of Oliver Cromwell.

    The crop circle (left) and the giant (right) are too close for coincidence

    It the crop circle and the hill figure – particularly the giant’s “lower” club – are related, then the circle takes on the resemblance of a female’s sexual organ. That would make sense if the crop circle was man-made, but Dr. Drew says it’s “paranormally real.”

    What about the Frying Pan? Located above and to the right of the Giant’s head, the trendle (which means ‘hoop’) or frying pan would predate a 17th century Giant. Most experts believe it’s the remnants of a temple and was later used for maypole dancing – a maypole would be erected in its center and childless couples would circle it in a fertility dance.

    The Giant and the Frying Pan

    Erect a pole? Giant erection? Fertility dance? Crop circle in the shape of a female sex organ? Despite Dr. Drew’s comment that “For people who think about “sex” all of the time, this might seem to be a good theory!”, it actually seems like this is the most likely connection … even for people who don’t think about sex all of the time.

    Whatever the case and whatever the cause, this new crop circle provides a great reason to call attention to one of Britain’s unique features – the Cerne Abbas Giant – and to ponder why an alien or time traveler would choose that shape for a nearby crop circle.

    That Marilyn Monroe UFO Document – Again

    I was interested to see Paul Seaburn’s new article, “New Film Suggests Marilyn Monroe Was About To Reveal Aliens.” It’s a saga that dates back to the mid-1990s and which is clearly not going to go away anytime soon, as this latest development shows. The vast majority of the story is reliant on a controversial document of questionable origins and of equally questionable authenticity. Allegedly, it’s a CIA document dated August 3, 1962 and which deals with Marilyn Monroe’s supposed knowledge of Roswell and UFO-themed conspiracies. You can find the document here.

    What particularly interests me about the “Monroe document” is not so much what it says, but what it specifically doesn’t say. Despite what many researchers have said, there is not even a single reference in the document to aliens, extraterrestrials, flying saucers, or UFOs. Not a single one. In fact, the wording could actually push the whole thing down a very different path. I’ll explain what I mean by that. But, first, let’s see how and under what circumstances the controversial one-page document surfaced.

    It all began in 1995, at a Los Angeles-based press conference. It was a press conference held by a man named Milo Speriglio. He was a guy with a deep interest in the circumstances surrounding Marilyn’s death. Speriglio was so interested in her final day that he wrote three books on the issues of her life and still-controversial death. They were Crypt 33The Marilyn Conspiracy, and Marilyn Monroe: Murder Cover-Up. Until 1995, Speriglio had not made any kind of connection between the Hollywood uber-babe and UFOs. So, what was it that prompted Speriglio to head off into new and highly inflammatory territory? It was a revelation from a man named Timothy Cooper.

    Today, many people within Ufology might not recognize that name. But, from the early-to-late 1990s, Cooper – of Big Bear Lake, California – was a well-known figure in Ufology. He was also a controversial figure, too. Most of the controversy stemmed from the fact that Cooper claimed to have received a wealth of old, sensational, leaked documents from retired figures in the intelligence community – almost all of them on crashed UFOs, Roswell, dead aliens, and the notorious Majestic 12 group.

    There’s no doubt that the documents existed (and still exist). You can find PDF versions of most of them at Ryan Wood’s MajesticDocuments.com website. There are literally hundreds of pages. The big question is: are they the real deal? When the papers were made available, there were those researchers who believed that the documents were 100 percent real. Some considered them to be government disinformation. And others were firmly of the opinion that Cooper had created them himself. The controversy raged for a while, but finally imploded upon itself with barely a sigh. The Marilyn document was one of those which Cooper claimed to have received from one of his various sources, or as I call them “ufological Snowdens.”

    I know quite a bit about the Cooper papers (including the Marilyn Monroe document), as the following extract from my new book, The Roswell UFO Conspiracy, makes clear (QUOTE): “It’s a little known fact that in late 2001 Tim Cooper sold all of his voluminous UFO files to Dr. Robert M. Wood. Bob is the author of Alien Viruses and the father of Ryan Wood, who has spent years researching alleged crashed UFO incidents – all detailed in his book, Majic Eyes Only. It is even less well-known that in the early days of 2002, Bob hired me to spend a week in an Orange County, California-based motel-room, surrounded by all of the thousands upon thousands of pages of Cooper’s voluminous collection of the cosmic sort. The plan was for me to catalog all of the material, to compile each and every piece of it into chronological order, and to summarize the content of each document, every letter, and every Freedom of Information request that Cooper had submitted to government agencies – which is precisely what I did. It was a week in which I most definitely earned my loot. It was also a week that paralleled the infamous story told by Hunter S. Thompson in his classic gonzo saga, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. Whereas Thompson was hunkered down with his whisky, margaritas and shrimp cocktails, for me it was cases of cold beer and club sandwiches” (END OF QUOTE).

    Hunter S. Thompson

    Contained within that huge amount of material at my disposal was the Monroe document – the original one that Cooper is said to have received from one of his sources. There were also a number of FOIA requests from Cooper that he had sent to various military and intelligence agencies, in search of any and all files on Marilyn Monroe. Cooper was clearly seeking out as much as he could find on Marilyn and UFOs – regardless of the actual origin of the document. For around eight weeks, Speriglio did absolutely nothing with the document, aside from sitting on it and pondering on what his next move should be. What Speriglio finally did was to hold that aforementioned press-conference. And that’s how the story began and how the document and its contents spilled over into the UFO research community.

    One of the lesser known aspects of this story is that Speriglio made a very brief comment to the effect that copies of the document were in the hands of what he described as “two federal agencies.” At the press conference, Speriglio flatly refused to reveal the identities of the two agencies. And he refused to reveal the names when questioned later, too. So far, nothing of any substance has ever surfaced in relation to what, exactly, those two agencies may have done with the document. If anything, at all, of course.

    Now, let’s take a look at the contents of the document. Most of those contents are focused on conversations between two people: Dorothy Kilgallen and a friend named Howard Rothberg. The former was a well-known figure in the field of celebrity-journalism in the 1950s and who was deeply interested in the JFK assassination (see this link for more information). As an aside, when the Speriglio-Cooper document surfaced, I fired off FOIA requests to the CIA and FBI and received copies of their files on Kilgallen. The CIA papers were few and brief, to say the least. The FBI, however, mailed me close to 170 pages on Kilgallen, demonstrating that she was someone watched closely by J. Edgar Hoover’s Special-Agents.

    As for what the purported CIA document states, there is this: “Rothberg discussed the apparent comeback of [Marilyn Monroe] with Kilgallen and the break up with the Kennedys. Rothberg told Kilgallen that she was attending Hollywood parties hosted by the ‘inner circle’ among Hollywood’s elite and was becoming the talk of the town again. Rothberg indicated in so many words, that she had secrets to tell, no doubt arising from her trists [sic] with the President and the Attorney General.”

    Now, we get to the crux of the story. The document states: “One such [illegible] mentions the visit by the President at a secret air base for the purpose of inspecting things from outer space. Kilgallen replied that she knew what might be the source of the visit. In the mid-fifties Kilgallen learned of secret effort by US and UK governments to identify the origins of crashed spacecraft and dead bodies, from a British government official. Kilgallen believed the story may have come from the [illegible] in the late forties. Kilgallen said that if the story is true, it could cause terrible embarrassment to Jack and his plans to have NASA put men on the moon.”

    It is true that Dorothy Kilgallen wrote – briefly – about UFOs back in 1955. While vacationing in the U.K. in that year, Kilgallen was on the receiving end of a very odd story, as she noted: “I can report today on a story which is positively spooky, not to mention chilling. British scientists and airmen, after examining the wreckage of one mysterious flying ship, are convinced these strange aerial objects are not optical illusions or Soviet inventions, but are flying saucers which originate on another planet. The source of my information is a British official of cabinet rank who prefers to remain unidentified.”

    That same “British official of cabinet rank” reportedly advised Kilgallen of the following: “We believe, on the basis of our inquiry thus far, that the saucers were staffed by small men – probably under four feet tall. It’s frightening, but there’s no denying the flying saucers come from another planet.” Kilgallen had more to say: “This official quoted scientists as saying a flying ship of this type could not have possibly been constructed on Earth. The British Government, I learned, is withholding an official report on the ‘flying saucer’ examination at this time, possibly because it does not wish to frighten the public. When my husband and I arrived here from a brief vacation, I had no premonition that I would be catapulting myself into the controversy over whether flying saucers are real or imaginary.”

    The references in the document to Marilyn having “secrets to tell” (secrets supposedly shared with her by JFK and RFK) have led a number of UFO investigators to conclude that Marilyn was killed because of what she knew about Roswell. The alleged CIA document goes on to refer to Monroe’s “diary of secrets,” “what the newspapers would do with such disclosures,” and how she had “threatened to hold a press conference and would tell all.” A countdown to death, all in the name of maintaining UFO secrecy? Well, yes, that’s how it seems. But, in Ufology practically nothing is as it seems.

    It’s important to note that at the top of the document there is a reference to a Project Moon Dust. In a January 2017 article I wrote for Mysterious Universe on Moon Dust I stated: “Over the years, ufologists have given a great deal of attention to a certain U.S. military program called Project Moon Dust (also referred to as Moondust). Its origins date back to the 1950s. The reason why so much attention has been placed upon Project Moon Dust is because of its potential connection to the issue of alleged crashed and recovered UFOs held by elements of the U.S. military – crash-retrievals or C/Rs as they are generally known. But, was Moon Dust really the key operation in secretly locating and recovering crashed ships from faraway worlds?”

    No, it was not. A November 3, 1961 U.S. Air Force document states: ““In addition to their staff duty assignments, intelligence team personnel have peacetime duty functions in support of such Air Force projects as Moondust, Bluefly, and UFO, and other AFCIN directed quick reaction projects which require intelligence team operational capabilities…Unidentified Flying Objects (UFO): Headquarters USAF has established a program for investigation of reliably reported unidentified flying objects within the United States. AFR 200-2 delineates 1127th collection responsibilities…”

    That all sounds very interesting…but…if you take a careful look at all of the Moon Dust documents in the public domain (which I have done), it becomes very clear that when the military was referring to “UFOs” in their files they were not talking about alien spacecraft. Rather, they were referencing probable space debris that originated with the former Soviet Union. Which brings me back to the document that got Milo Speriglio fired up.

    Keep Moon Dust in mind as you read the following. You’ll recall that earlier in this article I stated the following: “Despite what many researchers have said, there is not even a single reference in the document to dead aliens, extraterrestrials, flying saucers, or UFOs. Not a single one.” That’s absolutely true. What it really says is that JFK allegedly traveled to “…a secret air base for the purpose of inspecting things from outer space.” No references to aliens or to extraterrestrial ships. The document also refers to “crashed spacecraft and dead bodies.” But, again, no specific references to mangled E.T.s or wrecked saucers.

    Now, some might say that references to “dead bodies,” to “things from outer space,” and to “crashed spacecraft” are references to Roswell and deceased aliens. On the other hand, however, the very fact that the document references Project Moon Dust suggests another possibility. Namely, that the subject-matter may have been a failed – and still unknown – early Soviet manned-mission into space. One which predated Yuri Gagarin’s flight into outer space on April 12, 1961. There is another bit of data that supports this scenario. Recall that the document states: “Kilgallen said that if the story is true, it could cause terrible embarrassment to Jack and his plans to have NASA put men on the moon.” For ufologists this is – or should be – a problem.

    Why on Earth would widespread knowledge of the existence of aliens “cause terrible embarrassment to Jack and his plans to have NASA put me on the moon?” The answer is: it wouldn’t. If such information on aliens reached the public it certainly would have caused widespread fear, wonder and amazement among the public – and within government, too. But, specifically provoking embarrassment in relation to plans to put a man on the Moon? That doesn’t make any sense. If, however, those “dead bodies” were Soviet cosmonauts, if the “crashed spacecraft” was a Russian rocket, and if the Soviets did have a number of unsuccessful manned-missions that predated Gagarin – and that such information threatened to surface during the time Kennedy was in office – then yes that would have caused significant embarrassment for the JFK administration – and, possibly, for NASA.

    So, where does all of this leave us? Admittedly, since the Marilyn document first surfaced in 1995, my views and opinions have gone back and forth. I think it’s probably a hoax. Probably. Mainly because it gives Ufology just about all the things it wants and yearns for: the references to “dead bodies” and “crashed spacecraft” inevitably provoke Roswell-like imagery. The mention of a “secret air base” effortlessly points us in the direction of Area 51, thus adding another layer of sensational conspiracy to the story. The JFK-UFO angle reinforces the belief in some quarters that Kennedy was whacked because of what he knew about Roswell. The same with Marilyn, too. It’s The X-Files-meets-Dark Skies-meets-Oliver Stone’s JFK.

    But, I have to admit, I do find it intriguing that whoever really wrote the document, they were extremely vague in terms of what they were talking about. I have seen more than a few questionable UFO documents in my time, and the one thing that nearly all of them share is an explicit, collective reference to ETs, aliens, flying saucers, and extraterrestrial craft. In other words, there is no doubt about the subject-matter: creatures from other worlds.

    For me, though, the Marilyn document remains interesting because of the undeniable haziness of what it says. Or of what it doesn’t say. It doesn’t tell the reader that aliens crashed anywhere – despite the assumptions of Ufology. So, maybe, with that in mind, there is something to the document, after all. That’s not a case of me fence-sitting. As I said, I think it’s a hoax. But, if it is, then a great deal of thought went into it. As did a great deal of restraint – in terms of the unclear subject-matter. Maybe, there’s another answer: that we’re seeing a document crafted by disinformation experts to confuse Ufology, and for reasons presently unknown.

    In light of all the above, it’s not surprising the document is still “alive and kicking,” close to a quarter of a century after it surfaced.

    Alien life could exist on Pluto and the moons of Jupiter and Saturn, claim scientists

    EVERYTHING we believe about the universe could change, with several planets in our very own solar system may host alien life, stargazers have discovered.

    Aliens: Are We Alone?

    Does alien life exist? Scientists are closer than ever to finding out thanks to the Kepler Space Telescope. This revolutionary spacecraft is on a mission to find habitable alien planets.

    ALIEN hunters may be one step closer to finding ET.

    Several planets in our very own solar system may host alien life, stargazers have discovered.

    The Sun reports Saturn’s moon Enceladus, Jupiter’s moon Europa, Pluto and its moon Charon, as well as the dwarf planet Ceres are potential homes for extraterrestrials, scientists at University of Texas at San Antonio and the Southwest Research Institute claim.

    It’s all down to a process called radiolysis, which experts believe could breed life across the universe.

    All that’s needed is a rocky core and water molecules — something scientists reckon our solar system has plenty of.

    The study found that a the rocky cores of some planets and moons emit radiation which break up water molecules and in turn feed microbial life.

    Scientists conducted an experiment to predict how the radiation would affect interior oceans on planets like Pluto and Saturn’s moon Europa.

    Alexis Bouquet, lead author said: “The physical and chemical processes that follow radiolysis release molecular hydrogen, which is a molecule of astrobiological interest.”

    The radiation comes from elements like uranium, potassium and thorium — all of which are found in a group of rocky meteorites called chrondites.

    Pluto, as well as Saturn and Jupiter’s moons, is made up of chrondite.

    That means any ocean water permeating the porous rock of the core could be affected by radiolysis, producing molecular hydrogen and reactive oxygen compounds — the building blocks for life.

    NASA seems pretty convinced that Europa has a big ocean on it, and is planning to send a spaceship there to search for alien life.

    Lifeforms which have formed through radiolysis can be found closer to home.

    Bouquet said that they have been found in extreme environments on Earth.

    These include a groundwater sample found nearly two miles deep in a South African gold mine and at hydrothermal vents on the ocean floor.

    Their existence suggests microbes could be found where rock and ocean meet in planets like Enceladus or Europa.

    “We know that these radioactive elements exist within icy bodies, but this is the first systematic look at the solar system to estimate radiolysis.

    “The results suggest that there are many potential targets for exploration out there, and that’s exciting,” added co-author Dr Danielle Wyrick, a principal scientist in Southwest Research Institute’s Space Science and Engineering Division.
