    Ex-NASA physics professor claims 'many governments' have covered up alien encounters and says humanity must 'face the possibility' UFO sightings really ARE alien craft

    • A physics professor from University at Albany, State University of New York and former NASA researcher believes there is 'plenty of evidence to support UFOs'
    • He believes skepticism around UFOs prevents serious scientific research
    • Brazil, Canada, Denmark, Ecuador, France, New Zealand, Russia, Sweden and the United Kingdom have been declassifying their UFO files since 2008 

    Are we alone? Unfortunately, neither of the answers feel satisfactory. 

    To be alone in this vast universe is a lonely prospect. 

    On the other hand, if we are not alone and there is someone or something more powerful out there, that too is terrifying. 

    Scroll down for video

    A 1990 picture of a 'UFO' taken in Wallonia, Belgium. A physics professor from University at Albany, State University of New York and former NASA researcher believes there is 'plenty of evidence to support UFOs'

    As a NASA research scientist and now a professor of physics, I attended the 2002 NASA Contact Conference, which focused on serious speculation about extraterrestrials. 

    During the meeting a concerned participant said loudly in a sinister tone, 'You have absolutely no idea what is out there!' 

    The silence was palpable as the truth of this statement sunk in.

    Humans are fearful of extraterrestrials visiting Earth. Perhaps fortunately, the distances between the stars are prohibitively vast. 

    At least this is what we novices, who are just learning to travel into space, tell ourselves.

    I have always been interested in UFOs. Of course, there was the excitement that there could be aliens and other living worlds. 

    But more exciting to me was the possibility that interstellar travel was technologically achievable. 

    In 1988, during my second week of graduate school at Montana State University, several students and I were discussing a recent cattle mutilation that was associated with UFOs. 

    A physics professor joined the conversation and told us that he had colleagues working at Malmstrom Air Force Base in Great Falls, Montana, where they were having problems with UFOs shutting down nuclear missiles. 

    At the time I thought this professor was talking nonsense. But 20 years later, I was stunned to see a recording of a press conference featuring several former US Air Force personnel, with a couple from Malmstrom AFB, describing similar occurrences in the 1960s. Clearly there must be something to this.

    With July 2 being World UFO Day, it is a good time for society to address the unsettling and refreshing fact we may not be alone. 

    I believe we need to face the possibility that some of the strange flying objects that outperform the best aircraft in our inventory and defy explanation may indeed be visitors from afar – and there's plenty of evidence to support UFO sightings.

    The nuclear physicist Enrico Fermi was famous for posing thought provoking questions. 

    In 1950, at Los Alamos National Laboratory after discussing UFOs over lunch, Fermi asked, 'Where is everybody?' 

    He estimated there were about 300 billion stars in the galaxy, many of them billions of years older than the sun, with a large percentage of them likely to host habitable planets. 

    While the general public has been fascinated with UFOs for decades, our governments, scientists and media, have essentially declared that of all the UFO sightings are a result of weather phenomenon or human actions, Knuth claims.

    While the general public has been fascinated with UFOs for decades, our governments, scientists and media, have essentially declared that of all the UFO sightings are a result of weather phenomenon or human actions, Knuth claims.

    Even if intelligent life developed on a very small percentage of these planets, then there should be a number of intelligent civilizations in the galaxy. 

    Depending on the assumptions, one should expect anywhere from tens to tens of thousands of civilizations.

    With the rocket-based technologies that we have developed for space travel, it would take between 5 and 50 million years for a civilization like ours to colonize our Milky Way galaxy. 

    Since this should have happened several times already in the history of our galaxy, one should wonder where is the evidence of these civilizations? 

    This discrepancy between the expectation that there should be evidence of alien civilizations or visitations and the presumption that no visitations have been observed has been dubbed the Fermi Paradox.

    Carl Sagan correctly summarized the situation by saying that 'extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.' 

    The problem is that there has been no single well-documented UFO encounter that would alone qualify as the smoking gun. 

    The situation is exacerbated by the fact that many governments around the world have covered up and classified information about such encounters.

    But there are enough scraps of evidence that suggest that the problem needs to be open to scientific study.

    When it comes to science, the scientific method requires hypotheses to be testable so that inferences can be verified. 

    UFO encounters are neither controllable nor repeatable, which makes their study extremely challenging. But the real problem, in my view, is that the UFO topic is taboo.

    While the general public has been fascinated with UFOs for decades, our governments, scientists and media, have essentially declared that of all the UFO sightings are a result of weather phenomenon or human actions.

    WHAT ARE SOME REPORTED UFO SIGHTINGS?

    Among the sightings were reports from pilots of two U.S. Navy Super Hornet fighters who spotted a UFO on a training mission.

    They were 100 miles from San Diego in the Pacific when a call on their radios asked if they were carrying weapons.

    The unusual request, that day in 2004, came from a naval cruiser, the Princeton, that had spent two weeks tracking unidentified aircraft.

    Commanders David Fravor and Jim Slaight had only dummy missiles, but were directed to investigate objects that appeared suddenly at an altitude of 80,000ft, then plunged towards the sea. 

    Hovering erratically 50ft above that spot was some sort of flying craft, around 40ft long, oval-shaped and whitish.

    As the pilot descended towards it, it rose to meet him, but suddenly peeled away at an immense speed that he admits left him feeling 'pretty weirded out'. 

    The craft 'had no plumes, wings or rotors' but, seemingly travelling at a mile a second, easily outran America's fastest military jets.None are actually extraterrestrial spacecraft. 

    And no aliens have visited Earth.

    Essentially, we are told that the topic is nonsense. 

    UFOs are off-limits to serious scientific study and rational discussion, which unfortunately leaves the topic in the domain of fringe and pseudoscientists, many of whom litter the field with conspiracy theories and wild speculation.

    I think UFO skepticism has become something of a religion with an agenda, discounting the possibility of extraterrestrials without scientific evidence, while often providing silly hypotheses describing only one or two aspects of a UFO encounter reinforcing the popular belief that there is a conspiracy. 

    A scientist must consider all of the possible hypotheses that explain all of the data, and since little is known, the extraterrestrial hypothesis cannot yet be ruled out. 

    In the end, the skeptics often do science a disservice by providing a poor example of how science is to be conducted. The fact is that many of these encounters – still a very small percentage of the total – defy conventional explanation.

    The media amplifies the skepticism by publishing information about UFOs when it is exciting, but always with a mocking or whimsical tone and reassuring the public that it can't possibly be true. 

    But there are credible witnesses and encounters.

    I am often asked by friends and colleagues, 'Why don't astronomers see UFOs?' The fact is that they do. 

    In 1977, Peter Sturrock, a professor of space science and astrophysics at Stanford University, mailed 2,611 questionnaires about UFO sightings to members of the American Astronomical Society. 

    He received 1,356 responses from which 62 astronomers – 4.6 percent – reported witnessing or recording inexplicable aerial phenomena. This rate is similar to the approximately 5 percent of UFO sightings that are never explained.

    As expected, Sturrock found that astronomers who witnessed UFOs were more likely to be night sky observers. Over 80 percent of Sturrock's respondents were willing to study the UFO phenomenon if there was a way to do so. 

    More than half of them felt that the topic deserves to be studied versus 20 percent who felt that it should not. The survey also revealed that younger scientists were more likely to support the study of UFOs.

    Pictured: An example of a 'UFO' triangle formation that the UK government investigated as part of its report into alien sightings

    UFOs have been observed through telescopes. I know of one telescope sighting by an experienced amateur astronomer in which he observed an object shaped like a guitar pick moving through the telescope's field of view. 

    Further sightings are documented in the book 'Wonders in the Sky,' in which the authors compile numerous observations of unexplained aerial phenomena made by astronomers and published in scientific journals throughout the 1700s and 1800s.

    Some of the most convincing observations have come from government officials. In 1997, the Chilean government formed the organization Comité de Estudios de Fenómenos Aéreos Anómalos, or CEFAA, to study UFOs. 

    Last year, CEFAA released footage of a UFO taken with a helicopter-mounted Wescam infrared camera.

    The countries of Brazil, Canada, Denmark, Ecuador, France, New Zealand, Russia, Sweden and the United Kingdom have been declassifying their UFO files since 2008. 

    The French Committee for In-Depth Studies, or COMETA, was an unofficial UFO study group comprised of high-ranking scientists and military officials that studied UFOs in the late 1990s. 

    They released the COMETA Report, which summarized their findings. They concluded that 5 percent of the encounters were reliable yet inexplicable: The best hypothesis available was that the observed craft were extraterrestrial. They also accused the United States of covering up evidence of UFOs. 

    WHAT MAKES SOMEONE BELIEVE IN CONSPIRACY THEORIES?

    Over the course of three online-based studies, researchers at the University of Kent showed strong links between the belief in conspiracy theories and certain psychological traits.

    Narcissism and self-esteem levels have a large impact on a persons belief in conspiracy theories.  

    The results showed that people who rated highly on the narcissism scale and who had low self-esteem were more likely to be conspiracy believers.

    However, while low self-esteem, narcissism and belief in conspiracies are strongly linked, it is not clear that one - or a combination - causes the other.

    But it hints at an interesting new angle to the world of conspiracy and those who reinforce belief. 

    There are widely believed to be three main reasons as to why people believe in conspiracy theories. The desire for understanding and certainty - Seeking explanations for events is a natural human desire.

    • The desire for control and security - Conspiracy theories can give their believers a sense of control and security.
    • The desire to maintain a positive self-image - People who feel socially marginalised are more likely to believe in conspiracy theories and it gives them a sense of worth in the UFO community.

    These three things tie in with the previously stated qualities and combine to create an avid conspiracy theorist.

    Iran has been concerned about spherical UFOs observed near nuclear power facilities that they call 'CIA drones' which reportedly are about 30 feet in diameter, can achieve speeds up to Mach 10, and can leave the atmosphere. 

    Such speeds are on par with the fastest experimental aircraft, but unthinkable for a sphere without lift surfaces or an obvious propulsion mechanism.

    In December 2017, The New York Times broke a story about the classified Advanced Aviation Threat Identification Program, which was a $22 million program run by the former Pentagon official Luis Elizondo and aimed at studying UFOs. 

    Elizondo resigned from running the program protesting extreme secrecy and the lack of funding and support. 

    Following his resignation Elizondo, along with several others from the defense and intelligence community, were recruited by the To the Stars Academy of Arts & Science, which was recently founded by Tom DeLonge to study UFOs and interstellar travel. 

    In conjunction with the launch of the academy, the Pentagon declassified and released three videos of UFO encounters taken with forward looking infrared cameras mounted on F-18 fighter jets.

    While there is much excitement about such disclosures, I am reminded of a quote from Retired Army Colonel John Alexander: 'Disclosure has happened. … I've got stacks of generals, including Soviet generals, who've come out and said UFOs are real. My point is, how many times do senior officials need to come forward and say that this is real?'

    There is a great deal of evidence that a small percentage of these UFO sightings are unidentified structured craft exhibiting flight capabilities beyond any known human technology. 

    While there is no single case for which there exists evidence that would stand up to scientific rigor, there are cases with simultaneous observations by multiple reliable witnesses, along with radar returns and photographic evidence revealing patterns of activity that are compelling.

    Declassified information from covert studies is interesting, but not scientifically helpful. 

    This is a topic worthy of open scientific inquiry, until there is a scientific consensus based on evidence rather than prior expectation or belief. 

    If there are indeed extraterrestrial craft visiting Earth, it would greatly benefit us to know about them, their nature and their intent. 

    Moreover, this would present a great opportunity for mankind, promising to expand and advance our knowledge and technology, as well as reshaping our understanding of our place in the universe.

    Veel overheden stoppen geheime informatie over UFO’s in doofpot. Ex-NASA-wetenschapper en professor doet belangrijke oproep

    We moeten onder ogen zien dat sommige van de vreemde vliegende objecten in ons luchtruim, die vele malen sneller vliegen dan onze beste vliegtuigen, mogelijk bezoekers uit de ruimte zijn. Hier is meer dan genoeg bewijs voor, stelt voormalig NASA-wetenschapper en professor Kevin Knuth.

    Statistisch gezien moeten er talloze buitenaardse beschavingen zijn. Je kunt je dus afvragen waar het bewijs voor deze beschavingen is.

    Het probleem is dat er geen goed gedocumenteerde UFO-waarneming is die kan worden gezien als een smoking gun, zegt Knuth.

    Extreem uitdagend

    “Een ander probleem is het feit dat vele overheden geheime informatie over zulke waarnemingen in de doofpot hebben gestopt,” aldus de professor.

    Er zijn genoeg stukjes bewijs die suggereren dat er wetenschappelijk onderzoek naar moet worden gedaan, benadrukt hij.

    Dat UFO-waarnemingen controleerbeer noch herhaalbaar zijn, maakt het onderzoek naar dit fenomeen extreem uitdagend.

    Taboe

    “Maar het echte probleem is in mijn ogen dat het UFO-onderwerp taboe is,” klinkt het.

    Professor Knuth krijgt vaak de vraag waarom astronomen geen UFO’s zien. “Die zien ze wel,” zegt hij.

    In 1977 stuurde professor Peter Sturrock 2611 vragenformulieren over UFO-waarnemingen naar leden van de American Astronomical Society.

    Er waren 62 astronomen die aangaven dat ze onverklaarbare vliegende objecten in het luchtruim hadden waargenomen.

    Disclosure

    Daarnaast zei ruim 80 procent van de respondenten bereid te zijn het UFO-fenomeen te bestuderen als daar een mogelijkheid voor was.

    Knuth citeerde de gepensioneerde legerkolonel John Alexander: “Disclosure is al geweest. Er zijn talloze generaals geweest die hebben gezegd dat UFO’s echt zijn. Mijn punt is: hoe vaak moeten hooggeplaatste functionarissen zeggen dat dit echt is?”

    Laten we dus het taboe doorbreken en het UFO-fenomeen onderwerpen aan wetenschappelijk onderzoek, besluit de professor.

    Geoloog doet opzienbarende vondst in kilometerslange tunnel. Is de aarde hol?

    Radioshow Coast to Coast AM heeft een uitzending beschikbaar gemaakt over onderzoeker, avonturier en filmmaker Stephen Sindoni, die claimt dat er bewijs is voor de holle aarde.

    Hij wijst op gesprekken met inheemse stamoudsten, die verwezen naar de holle aarde.

    Sindoni noemt tijdens het gesprek het verhaal over J.C. Brown, een man die naar verluidt aan het begin van de 20e eeuw als geoloog voor Lord Cowdray Mining Company werkte.

    Lemurische beschaving

    Brown beweerde in 1904 onder Mount Shasta in Californië op een oude Lemurische beschaving te zijn gestuit.

    Hij zou een bijna 18 kilometer lange tunnel in de berg zijn gevolgd, waarna hij naar eigen zeggen uitkwam bij een dorp met bijna vier meter grote koperen voorwerpen, standbeelden, wapens en drie meter lange skeletten.

    Licht

    De standbeelden straalden licht uit en om die reden nam Brown aan dat ze barium bevatten.

    Sindoni sprak in de VS met een stamoudste, die hem vertelde dat duizenden jaren geleden een groep mensen uit een ander zonnestelsel naar de aarde is gekomen.

    Mierenmensen

    Die mensen werden volgens de stamoudste door de ‘mierenmensen’ meegenomen naar een ondergrondse plek.

    “De Lemuriërs waren ruim 2,5 meter lang en mijn opa heeft ze gezien toen hij in een river bij Mount Rainier aan het vissen was,” ze de stamoudste.

    OUMUAMUA VERSNELT PLOTSELING EN VERANDERT VAN KOERS

    Eind vorig jaar hadden we een unieke situatie, waarbij een “komeet” uit een ander zonnestelsel bij ons op bezoek kwam. 

    De wetenschap zat met de handen in het haar, want hoe ze ook dachten en puzzelden, Oumuamua paste in geen enkel hokje. 

    Eerder dit jaar hadden we te maken met een vreemd ruimteobject, dat werd omschreven en geclassificeerd als een komeet en dat van buiten ons zonnestelsel scheen te komen. 
    Sinds ons artikel zijn er alleen nog maar meer vragen gerezen over dit object dat inmiddels de naam Oumuamua heeft gekregen. Het object dat van een ander zonnestelsel kwam, om de zon draaide en weer verdween in de ruimte. The Minor Planet Center heeft bijgedragen aan de naamgeving, wat zoveel betekent als eerste boodschapper van ver weg.:
    Accordingly, the object A/2017 U1 receives the permanent designation 1I
    and the name ʻOumuamua. The name, which was chosen by the Pan-STARRS team, is
    of Hawaiian origin and reflects the way this object is like a scout or
    messenger sent from the distant past to reach out to us (ʻou means reach out
    for, and mua, with the second mua placing emphasis, means first, in advance of).

    Volgens de European Southern Observatory (ESO) is Oumuamua een object dat we nog nooit eerder hebben gezien en bestaat het uit rots of metaal met een roodachtige kleur

    Het object moet er ongeveer als volgt uit zien. Een ander fenomeen is dat het om haar eigen as lijkt te draaien en dat de lichtintensiteit varieert. 

    xxx

    Men probeert wanhopig om voor dit alles logische verklaringen te vinden, maar slaagt daar niet zo erg in. 

    Men vermoedt dat het uit de buurt komt van de ster Vega, maar ook dat schijnt niet te kunnen omdat in de tijd dat Oumuamua daar is vertrokken, die ster op een heel andere plek stond. Nu denken ze dat het object misschien wel helemaal nergens thuishoort en als een soort los projectiel door de ruimte zwerft. 

    De wetenschap zit (ook) wat dit object betreft met de handen in het haar, want niet één van de normale verklaringen past.

    Waar we hier over praten, is een groot moederschip dat ons hier met een bezoek heeft vereerd. Dat is de enige logische verklaring en ook is er ook één die past in de omschrijving van het object en de gedragingen. 

    Nu komen er via NASA berichten dat een team van wetenschappers met behulp van gegevens van de Hubble ruimtetelescoop en andere bronnen heeft vastgesteld dat Oumuamua opeens accelereert en van koers is veranderd. 

    Marco Micheli van de Europese Ruimtevaartorganisatie heeft bevestigd dat de bewegingen van het object aantonen dat er onder invloed van iets anders dan de zwaartekracht van de zon en andere planeten in ons zonnestelsel iets met Oumuamua is gebeurd. 

    Dan Davide Farnocchia van het NASA Jet Propulsion Lab (JPL) die volhoudt dat het object zich gedraagt als een normale komeet en dat de versnelling en koersverandering misschien wel te maken hebben met de uitstoot van gas vanaf het oppervlak van de komeet. 

    Echter, volgens Olivier Haunaut van het European Southern Observatory zijn er geen waarneembare tekenen van het uitstoten van gas. 

    Maar, omdat de wetenschappelijke gelederen gesloten dienen te blijven, komt er een soort gezamenlijke verklaring van wetenschappers waarbij ze dan concluderen dat Oumuamua een hele kleine hoeveelheid stofdeeltjes heeft uitgestoten die verantwoordelijk zouden zijn geweest voor de koersverandering. De uitstoot van die stofdeeltjes zou zo subtiel geweest zijn de wetenschappers niet in staat zijn geweest om dit op te pikken. 

    De Volkskrant sust op de volgende manier haar lezers in slaap: 

    De verklaring: het hemellichaam bevat wél vluchtig materiaal, en via barsten en spleten in het oppervlak stromen gassen en dampen de ruimte in. Zo’n klein raket-effect beïnvloedt de beweging – denk maar aan een losgelaten feestballonnetje, dat ook alle kanten op kronkelt. 

    Het effect was heel klein, aldus een internationaal team van onderzoekers deze week in Nature, maar elke andere mogelijke verklaring wordt vakkundig naar de prullenbak verwezen. Conclusie: de kosmische binnendringer verloor een paar kilogram gas per seconde, vermoedelijk waterdamp en koolmonoxide. Dat is niet veel, maar volgens het astronomische hokjesdenken ben je dan toch een komeet. 


    Héhé, dat was even zweten, maar gelukkig is er nu een wetenschappelijke verklaring die de stofdeeltjes de schuld geeft, zodat we vooral niet hoeven zeggen dat het gewoon een groot buitenaards, intelligent bestuurd ruimteschip is.

    Mysterious Sonar Anomaly investigated in ocean off North Carolina by NOAA

    A mysterious "sonar anomaly" had NOAA explorers diving off the coast of North Carolina on Wednesday, hoping for an explanation.

    NOAA has not been afraid to notch up suspense about the area, noting it could be "an archaeology site, a geological formation or otherwise."

    Image credit NOAA.

    It's anybody's guess what "otherwise" means, but UFO enthusiasts might be tingling with ideas.

    The site is being called the “Big Dipper Anomaly" by the crew aboard NOAA's Okeanos Explorer, which launched a remotely operated vehicle in the area at 8:30 a.m. Wednesday.

    Experts believed the anomaly might be a shipwreck, but were leaning toward "a geological formation with biological communities and other debris" later in the day, according to TV station WTKR in Virginia.

    Image credit NOAA.

    But an official accounting of their findings has not been released yet and since the location of the anomaly is being kept confidential it becomes clear that NOAA has found something very strange and unusual off the coast of North Carolina. We will keep an eye on this strange event.

    Three-Fingered Mummified Aliens Found In Peru, UFO Researcher Claims

    peru-alien

    A UFO researcher has claimed he has unearthed alien remains in Nazca, Peru in 2015. Some UFO fans quickly labelled it as evidence of ancient aliens. They argued that the strange creatures may have inhabited the Earth long before the people.

    According to UFO researcher Steve Mera, DNA tests show one body to be 98.5 per cent primate, related to humans, and 1.5 per cent unknown.

    Steve said they have proof that the Maria body constitutes a fantastic find. He stressed that it may alter history books forever and would go down as the most significant find of the 21st Century.

    However, the World Congress on Mummy Studies has described the discovery as a fraud and called it an irresponsible organized campaign of disinformation.

    peru-aliens

    Hoax debunkers offered a detailed analysis, including the fact that Gaia.com, the one spreading the information about the mummy discovery, has been alleged of promoting the idea of ancient aliens of which no actual evidence was presented.

    UFO author Nigel Watson said that mummy discoveries such as this one are very probably fakes. He explained that humanoid aliens with three long fingers could not survive as they would be clumsy and incapable of making a cup of tea let alone flying a spaceship.

    Nigel also pointed out the fact that the news was fed to the people via a website that you need to subscribe. He said that it could be fake news designed to indulge the fascination of people with ancient aliens and UFOs.

    Beste bewijs van buitenaards leven tot nu toe gevonden op Saturnusmaan. Wetenschappers staan versteld

    Wetenschappers spreken van het beste bewijs van buitenaards leven tot nu toe. Hun onderzoek is gepubliceerd in vakblad Nature.

    Eerder waren in het materiaal dat Enceladus uitstoot enkel eenvoudige organische moleculen waargenomen, waaronder methaan.

    Diep onder de indruk

    De moleculen die nu zijn gevonden, zijn ruim 10 keer zo zwaar dan methaan. Barsten in het ijs op Enceladus bleken verrassend grote hoeveelheden koolstof te bevatten.

    De onderzoekers zijn diep onder de indruk van de ontdekking.

    In combinatie met de aanwezigheid van vloeibaar water is hiermee aan de basisbehoeften van organismen voldaan.

    Enige bekende plek

    Ruimtewetenschapper Christopher Glein zei dat Enceladus naast de aarde de enige bekende plek is waar alle basisbenodigdheden zijn voor leven zoals wij dat kennen.

    “We staan opnieuw versteld van Enceladus,” zei hij tegen de Britse krant Independent.

    Bewoonbaar gebied

    Er is een bewoonbaar gebied op de Saturnusmaan en we kunnen gaan kijken of daar al dan niet leven aanwezig is, liet hoofdonderzoeker Frank Postberg van de Universiteit van Heidelberg weten.

    De gegevens zijn tussen 2004 en 2017 verzameld door ruimtesonde Cassini. De sonde is in 1997 gelanceerd om Saturnus en alle manen van de planeet in kaart te brengen.

    New Mexico geologist discusses suspected UFO crash site findings

    By Elena Mendoza

    ROSWELL, N.M. (KRQE) - The Bureau of Land Management is taking an interest in a New Mexico geologist's discoveries that he claims are out of this world. He believes he has found parts of the alleged UFO crash near Roswell in 1947.

    "Some of it could be trash, camper trash, but some of it could be interesting,” said Geologist Frank Kimbler.

    Kimbler distinctly remembers the moment he discovered debris from the suspected 1947 UFO crash site.

    "I started looking around all over the place, looking to see if the helicopters were going to fly over, because you get paranoid when you read the stories of about Roswell and what's happened to people when they've come forward with stuff,” he said.

    Over the past eight years, Kimbler has dedicated himself to finding physical proof of the UFO, going out to the suspected site 75 miles northwest of Roswell about a dozen times.

    Using a metal detector, he's collected about 20 metallic fragments the size of a fingernail.

    "Some of the material that I found out there has been tested and it has anomalies that suggest that it might be of extraterrestrial origin,” said Kimbler.

    Recently, Kimbler became afraid his research was in jeopardy when the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) contacted him, wanting to meet. 

    New_Mexico_geologist_meets_with_BLM_to_d_0_20180626233655

    Kimbler said he was positive he was just a test away from discovering the truth.

    When the BLM called, he became a little paranoid and even removed his findings from the International UFO Museum in Roswell.

    "I said sure, about had a heart attack. I'm going, ‘Oh, they're going to arrest me, they're going to confiscate this material,’” said Kimbler. “I always thought that I was within my legal rights as a citizen of the U.S. to go out and metal detect."

    Much to his relief, that wasn't the case.

    "It had a happy ending. I got clarification on the rules and regulations from the BLM and there was no confiscation of materials,” Kimbler said.

    He believes the recent commercial interest in the site played a role in how the BLM got alerted to his presence and findings there.

    Kimbler, a researcher with the International UFO Museum who has been featured in several documentaries, says he will continue to try and find suspected debris but will work with the BLM to do it the right way.

    Frank Kimbler, a geology and earth science teacher at the New Mexico Military Institute, spends considerable time searching the area of the alleged UFO crash near Roswell, New Mexico. This professor and geologist has recovered mysterious metals from the area, and he recently appeared on the NatGeo show Chasing UFOs. We talk with Frank about his experience on the show, and about his mystery metals. We also talk about a UFO at the Olympics, William Shatner vs. Wil Wheaton, and other space and UFO news on this episode of Spacing Out!

    Geoloog claimt delen van Roswell-UFO te hebben gevonden. Dit overheidsagentschap was er als de kippen bij

    Een geoloog claimt in New Mexico stukken van de UFO te hebben gevonden die in 1947 nabij Roswell zou zijn neergekomen. De vondst heeft nu de aandacht getrokken van het Bureau of Land Management, een agentschap van het Amerikaanse ministerie van Binnenlandse Zaken.

    “Er zit mogelijk afval tussen, maar een deel kan interessant zijn,” zei geoloog Frank Kimbler.

    De afgelopen acht jaar was hij erop gebrand om fysiek bewijs van de UFO te vinden. Meer dan 10 keer reisde hij af naar het gebied waar het object zou zijn gecrasht.

    Mogelijk buitenaards

    Met behulp van een metaaldetector verzamelde hij zo’n 20 metalen fragmenten.

    “Een deel van het materiaal dat ik gevonden heb is getest en vertoont eigenaardigheden die erop wijzen dat het mogelijk buitenaards is,” zei Kimbler.

    Hij was bang dat zijn onderzoek gevaar zou lopen toen het Bureau of Land Management zich ermee ging bemoeien.

    Waarheid

    Kimber zei dat hij op het punt stond achter de waarheid te komen. Toen het bureau hem belde besloot hij de fragmenten te verstoppen.

    “Ik dacht dat ze me zouden arresteren en dit materiaal in beslag zouden nemen,” zei hij. Maar dit bleek niet het geval en er werd niets in beslag genomen.

    Kimbler, die in meerdere documentaires te zien is geweest, zegt in samenwerking met het bureau te blijven speuren naar wrakstukken.

    HET IS GEEN ASTEROÏDE, HET IS EEN RUIMTESCHIP ( VIDEO )

    De Europese ruimteorganisatie ESA heeft miljarden euro’s uitgegeven om een komeet te onderzoeken die radiosignalen uitzendt en waar meer vreemde dingen mee aan de hand lijken.

    Nu is er iets vergelijkbaars bij de Japanners gaande die de komende dagen een sonde zullen laten landen op een vreemd uitziende asteroïde. 

    Het publiek wat met twee benen op aarde rond loopt, wordt aan alle kanten in de maling genomen voor wat betreft de werkelijke stand van zaken en activiteiten in de ruimte.

    Het onbemande Japanse ruimtevaartuig Hayabusa2 is aangekomen bij een asteroïde en zal daar de komende dagen niet alleen een landing uitvoeren, maar nog veel meer activiteiten verrichten. 

    Zo zal er door middel van een explosie een gat worden geslagen in de asteroïde, waardoor de sonde de nodige monsters kan nemen die vervolgens teruggebracht zullen worden naar de aarde. De asteroïde bevindt zich op dit moment op zo’n 280 miljoen kilometer afstand van ons. 

    De sonde zal daar al met al ongeveer anderhalf jaar actief zijn en diverse korte landingen uitvoeren om monsters te verzamelen. En dit alles moet de mensheid dan een beter inzicht geven over de oorsprong van het zonnestelsel en het leven op aarde. 

    Maar, als je goed kijkt naar de beelden van deze asteroïde dan ziet het er merkwaardig gevormd uit. Als een ruit met bovenop iets dat lijkt op een constructie en links een merkwaardige krater.

    xxx

    Wanneer je het beeld van deze asteroïde vergelijkt met de eveneens geheimzinnige maan Phobos die bij de planeet Mars hoort, dan zie je de overeenkomsten. De bovenste twee zijn van de asteroïde waar de Japanners nu mee bezig zijn en de onderste is Phobos.

    xxx

    Wat dan natuurlijk de vraag oproept of we hier wel te maken hebben met een asteroïde, of dat ook dit weer één van de vele kunstmatige constructies is die er in de ruimte zweven. Objecten die er misschien uit zien als kometen, asteroïden of manen, maar die in feite niets anders zijn dan goed gecamoufleerde ruimteschepen. 

    In de volgende video gaat Tyler van Secureteam verder in op dit fenomeen en haalt nog een aantal leuke voorbeelden aan van objecten die waarschijnlijk helemaal geen asteroïde, komeet of maan zijn. 

    Over een aantal zijn ook op deze website al eerder artikelen verschenen zoals de maan Phobos en het vreemde object dat hier kwam van buiten ons zonnestelsel wat eruit zag als een groot sigaarvormig ruimteschip. 

     
    Iets, wat hier natuurlijk ook niet mag ontbreken is het verhaal van de vreemde komeet P67, waarover wij eerder uitgebreid hebben geschreven. Hierna daarom een deel uit zo'n eerder artikel: De meest vreemde komeet in ons zonnestelsel is ongetwijfeld komeet P67. 

    Hij zendt alleen radiosignalen, maar zo te zien hebben buitenaardsen het zich daar ook gemakkelijk gemaakt. 

    Eerder deze week schreven wij al over deze bijzondere komeet (zie onder) en hoe uit recente NASA foto’s bleek dat er een ruimteschip/UFO boven de komeet hing. 

    Het wordt nog vreemder, want nu is er op de komeet zelf een soort geparkeerd ruimteschip aangetroffen. 

    Het is een ontdekking die is gedaan door ufoloog Scott Waring op een EAS (European Space Administration) foto van juli dit jaar. 

    Duidelijk is dat het geen vlekje op de lens is, maar een klein soort ruimtevaartuig dat een beetje lijkt op een modern stealth gevechtsvliegtuig. 

    Een UFO in een dergelijke kleur steekt ook wel mooi af tegen het donkere oppervlakte van de komeet en kan dan ook op geen enkele wijze worden afgedaan als een “natuurlijk verschijnsel”. 

    Dat zal dan ook wel de achterliggende reden zijn dat alle communicatie met de Rosetta opeens is opgehouden omdat deze gecrasht zou zijn. Scott is er heilig van overtuigd dat dit een leugen is en dat de missie in het geheim gewoon doorgaat. 

    Wat die missie dan is, is niet duidelijk, maar wel dat er buitenaardsen bij betrokken zijn.

    xxx

    De foto waar Scott dit ruimtevaartuig op heeft gevonden, is hier te bekijken.

    Voor de volledigheid het eerdere artikel van deze week: 

    Een komeet die radiosignalen uitzendt en waar de Europese ruimtevaartorganisatie ESA miljarden euro’s aan uitgeeft om die te onderzoeken. 

    Ogenschijnlijk kwam er enkele weken geleden een einde aan de Europese ruimtemissie naar de komeet 67P

    Op 30 september 2016, om 12.38 uur crashte Rosetta gecontroleerd op de komeet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. Om 13.20 uur (Nederlandse tijd), kwam de bevestiging binnen dat Rosetta gecrasht is. Deze vertraging werd veroorzaakt doordat het 40 minuten duurde voordat de data de aarde bereikte. De sonde werd in overeenstemming met internationale afspraken automatisch uitgezet vlak voor de landing, dit om te voorkomen dat de zender als een stoorzender in het zonnestelsel zou gaan werken en andere observaties zou gaan storen. De crash betekent het einde van de succesvolle missie van Rosetta. 

    Echter, de dag voordat Rosetta crashte, zijn er toch nog wel een paar interessante opnames gemaakt waaruit blijkt dat die komeet toch wel even iets meer is dan men ons wil laten geloven. 

    Zoals op de volgende opname te zien, hangt er een grote UFO boven de rotsmassa van komeet 67P.

    xxx

    Een stukje uit een eerder artikel: 

    De bekende videomaker op Youtube BP Earthwatch ontving een e-mail met het volgende nogal schokkende bericht: 

    Het bericht is afkomstig van iemand die werkt binnen ESA (European Space Agency). Deze zegt dat de belangstelling voor deze komeet zo’n twintig jaar geleden werd gewekt doordat NASA radiosignalen ontving, afkomstig van deze komeet. 

    Dat niet alleen, maar ergens in de afgelopen twintig jaar schijnt 67P ook van koers te zijn veranderd. 

    Veel wetenschappers hebben ook al hun verbazing uitgesproken over het uiterlijk van deze komeet omdat men een soort sneeuw en ijsklomp had verwacht. Iets waarbij in het geval van 67P absoluut geen sprake is. 

    Besloten werd volgens de klokkenluider om deze “komeet” met een bezoek te vereren. Om de aandacht af te leiden en dit zo geruisloos mogelijk te doen, werd een samenwerking aangegaan tussen NASA en ESA, waarbij de laatste een missie zou organiseren onder de noemer van onderzoek naar een komeet. 

    De klokkenluider zegt verder: "Jullie zijn toch niet zo gek om te geloven dat ze deze Rosetta missie die al in 2004 werd gelanceerd en miljarden Dollars kost, zomaar gaan doen om een stukje rots in de ruimte te onderzoeken? Nee, ze doen dit omdat er iets aan de hand is met 67P en omdat ze vandaar radiosignalen hebben opgevangen". 

    Wat 67P ook moge zijn, volgens de klokkenluider is het zeker dat het geen komeet is. 


    Dan, net voordat de Rosetta voor ons gewone mensen volledig uit beeld verdwijnt, een ruimteschip wat daar hangt wat minstens 100 meter lang is.


    xxx

    Een “komeet” waar onlangs nog antennes werden ontdekt, eerder ufo’s zijn waargenomen, vreemde constructies/gebouwen zijn ontdekt en die ook nog eens radiosignalen uitzendt. 

    Waar het meer op lijkt, is dat men de verdere communicatie met buitenaardsen op komeet P67 volledig buiten het zicht van de bevolking wil houden. 

    Zoals te doen gebruikelijk, zouden we daaraan toe willen voegen.

    De originele NASA foto is hier te bekijken.

    “Men in Black” – A New Book Reviewed

    Men in Black is the new book from Conrad Bauer. Its subtitle: Evidence and True Stories About Earth’s Most Mysterious Cover Agents. Certainly, it’s not the longest book ever written on the phenomenon (it’s pretty slim), and it’s not a deeply extensive study of the mystery. But, where the book really scores, is the way in which Bauer approaches his story. What Bauer has done is to write a book on the Men in Black for those who are, perhaps, largely new to the phenomenon – and who want a basic, quick rundown on the puzzle and without having to dig through the 10 or so MIB-themed books that are currently available. And, it helps that Bauer has a good, atmospheric style of writing, one which makes his book a cool page-turner.

    Bauer begins with a summary of the extremely controversial saga of the Maury Island incident of the summer of 1947; an incident involving an exploded UFO. Or, which was nothing  but a crazy hoax, one that tragically led to the deaths of two military personnel. True or not, the Maury Island affair became notable for its link to a sinister character in black who warned one of the key witnesses, Harold Dahl, to keep his mouth shut. Or else.

    There is a great deal of information in Men in Black on Albert Bender, the one guy who, in almost single-handed fashion, “created” the MIB mystery. Or, who at least brought it to the attention of the UFO research community and – eventually – to the military, the FBI and the public, in a roundabout way. So many researchers have claimed that the trio of MIB who visited Bender’s home in 1953 were from the government. They certainly were not.

    Albert Bender

    Bauer, in his section on Bender, skillfully demonstrates that Bender’s MIB were not agents from the U.S. Government. They were ghoulish, menacing things that didn’t even look completely human. On top of that, Bauer points out how the MIB that Bender crossed paths with had far more links to the occult and the supernatural than they did the likes of the CIA, the Air Force, etc. Bauer, in a persuasive fashion, make it clear that whoever – or whatever – that trio of terrors in black that plagued Bender really were, they were clearly something paranormal and dangerous.

    As Bauer notes, Bender’s story was filled to the brim with paranormal activity, dangerous beings from other planes of existence, and things that sounded like they had just stepped out of the pages of a Victorian era Penny Dreadful. Shadowy figures in black follow him to his home late at night. Strange balls of light appear in his attic bedroom – which becomes overwhelmed by a powerful odor of sulfur, no less.

    Bauer then moves onto the matter of Gray Barker’s 1956 book on the Bender affair. Its title: They Knew Too Much About Flying Saucers. Barker’s book is a controversial one. It is filled with rumors fleshed out as facts, and Barker’s imagination going into overdrive. Add to that a few outright hoaxes undertaken by Barker, and what you get is hardy non-fiction: They Knew Too Much

    Strange characters impersonating employees of NORAD crop up, as do a couple of genuinely weird sagas of MIB from the U.K., in the early 1970s. I liked these sections particularly, as Bauer makes it clear just how inhuman these things really are. Of course, it wouldn’t be a book on the Men in Black without a good look back at the MIB presence in Point Pleasant, West Virginia, where the Mothman lurked from late 1966 to December 1967. The dark atmosphere that enveloped the area is well-handled, making it abundantly clear that they were truly strange times – and that Point Pleasant was even home to pale-faced Women in Black, as well as the equally creepy MIB. And with the specter of the Mothman hanging over the good people of Point Pleasant.

    In the next couple of chapters, Bauer makes an even greater argument to the effect that the Men in Black are not human. Inhuman would be far better. Bauer ends his book with a look at the possible origins of the Men in Black – and their  strange, and almost theatrical, activities, which are particularly in evidence when they are terrorizing witnesses to UFOs.

    In conclusion, Conrad Bauer’s book, Men in Black, is the perfect one for people who don’t know too much about the MIB subject – but who would like to – and who don’t want to have to wade through 300 pages or more to get the answers and to learn about the classic cases. In a well-structured, and well-written, fashion Bauer gives the reader the key moments in MIB history, the theories for what they are, their possible motivations and much more. And it’s all presented in a very creepy, bizarre and surreal fashion – which is highly appropriate for a book on the Men in Black!

    Oumuamua’s True Identity Has Finally Been Determined

    It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s an asteroid! It’s a weird spaceship from another galaxy! It’s a comet! It’s … Oumuamua! The interstellar visitor didn’t stay long but it has captivated the hearts and minds and computer models of astronomers and space scientists worldwide who want to know what it is. Researchers watching the trailing end of the cigar-shaped visitor as it left the solar system noticed that it was accelerating. While it could have just been trying to get away from the all of the chaos it saw on Earth, the real reason seemed to be that gas coming off of the back end was pushing it to a slightly higher speed … a trait that is commonly seen on … sorry, it’s too late to place your bets … comets!

    Is ‘Oumuamua an Interstellar Asteroid or Comet?

    “After ruling out solar-radiation pressure, drag- and friction-like forces, interaction with solar wind for a highly magnetized object, and geometric effects originating from ‘Oumuamua potentially being composed of several spatially separated bodies or having a pronounced offset between its photocentre and centre of mass, we find comet-like outgassing to be a physically viable explanation, provided that ‘Oumuamua has thermal properties similar to comets.”

    A team led by Marco Micheli, a European Space Agency astronomer, released their study this week in the journal Nature. The acceleration of Oumuamua was actually expected since it would be affected by the gravitational pulls of the Moon and outer planets, but the speed at which it was moving could not be attributed to gravity alone.

    “It’s an unusual comet, and that’s pretty exciting.”

    Karen Meech, an astronomer at the University of Hawaii in Honolulu and a team member, explained to Hawaii’s KHON that the unusual lack of dust and ice on Oumuamua meant it didn’t have a tail and that initially led observers to think it was a rocky asteroid rather than an icy comet. In addition, Meech says astronomers were looking for evidence of cyanide, which gives comets a blue hue. They didn’t see it, which means that Oumuamua is still a comet but one with a different chemical composition that those passing thought the solar system before.

    Halley’s comet

    If you’re looking for a career exploring the stars and you’re too tall or too scared to be an astronaut, Meech recommends astronomy as the job of the future.

    “This is the first time we’ve ever seen anything like this. Astronomers have been predicting this for decades, so it was very exciting to see the first one come through. I think the Pan-STARRS in particular is going to start to see a lot more of these with the second telescope now starting its survey, so it’s an exciting time to be an astronomer.”

    Exciting, yes … unless you’re the astronomer who spots the deadly asteroid or comet heading straight for Earth.

    Scientist Says NASA is Hiding the Truth About Deadly Asteroids

    Nathan Myhrvold thinks NASA is up to something. The “modernist cookbook“ author, physics PhD, and former Microsoft executive has just published a peer-reviewed paperrefuting NASA’s data concerning NASA’s analysis of near Earth objects, the potentially deadly asteroids and meteoroids and other objects whizzing about in the area of space just outside of our orbit. According to Myrhvold’s calculations, NASA’s data “suffer from systematic errors and inconsistencies.” Does this mean we’re in a lot more danger than NASA is letting on?

    The last thing most of us will ever see: our phones.

    Let’s hope not, especially given how utterly unprepared we still are for the event of even a minor asteroid impact. In a blog post, Myhrvold doesn’t specifically state that NASA is intentionally under-reporting the amount of near Earth objects tracked by their NEOWISE project (short for Near Earth Object Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer), but does accuse NASA scientists of “scientific misconduct” and “further misconduct, apparently to cover up the issues” he previously pointed out in their data:

    The issues I am calling misconduct in the NEOWISE papers were not inadvertent. They appear to have been deliberate choices made repeatedly by the NEOWISE team over a long period of time. These actions have caused the astronomical community to work under the false belief that the NEOWISE results are more accurate (have smaller errors) than the evidence warrants.

    Myhrvold goes on to accuse scientists working on the NEOWISE project of reacting “extremely deceptively,” claiming that NEOWISE scientists ignored his attempts to point out the inaccuracies in private and that “the very NASA managers who should have been supervising the project were more interested in protecting it from scrutiny.”

    Black Knight satellite

    NASA wouldn’t lie to us, would they?

    The reason the NEOWISE data are so important is because hundreds of scientists and even space agencies around the world have used the data for their own separate studies and missions. With so much riding on our ability to understand the NEO activity above our heads, it’s imperative that scientists have the most accurate data available in order to someday be able to protect us from a potentially cataclysmic impact.

    For their part, NEOWISE has yet to comment on Myhrvold’s critique of their data. “The NEOWISE team stands by its data and scientific findings that have been published in several peer-reviewed journal articles,” a NASA spokesperson said in a statement. “NASA is confident the processes and analyses performed by the NEOWISE team are valid, as verified by independent researchers.” Meanwhile, UCLA’s Edward L. Wright, head of the NEOWISE project, called Myhrvold’s publication “a waste of paper.”

    Is this merely a case of scientists splitting methodological hairs, or might there be some sort of attempt to hide the truth about NEOs? Furthermore, do we really want to know the truth? Personally, I like sleeping at night. Some threats are better left in the dark.

    UFO Metal Found At Roswell Draws Interest From Government Agency

    Geologist Frank Kimbler has spent the last eight years making periodic trips out to the location armed with a metal detector in the hopes of picking up something left behind after the infamous 1947 event.

    And, as a result of these excursions, he claims to have recovered nearly 20 small metal fragments.

    Image credit Frank Kimbler.

    "Some of the material that I found out there has been tested and it has anomalies that suggest that it might be of extraterrestrial origin,” said Kimbler.

    Believing that his research is getting very close to a proverbial smoking gun, Kimbler became incredibly worried last week when the Bureau of Land Management called and asked to meet with him.

    Kimbler thought that they were going to confiscate the pieces of UFO metal and his concern was so serious that he went so far as to pull all of his discoveries from Roswell's International UFO Museum where they had been on display.

    Fortunately, it turned out that his fears were unfounded as the meeting largely consisted of Kimbrel being reminded of the BLM's rules regarding the collection of materials and his own discoveries remained safely in his possession.

    I Contacted JAXA space Admin But Israeli Diplomat Responded, June 2018, UFO Sighting News.

    Date of tweets: June 29, 2018

    Hey everyone. The JAXA (Japan space agency) probe reached the asteroid Ryugu and has only released one close up photo of it, even though the spacecraft has been there for over 48 hours. I have reached out to five official JAXA accounts on Twitter as you see from the screenshots, but as of yet, I have received no replies from the Japanese. However I have received a reply from a Isrealie diplomate @ElanRatson who is stationed in the UK embassy. He said that onboard the probe is a smaller probe made by Isreal and its CPU brain made by Isreal which is responsible for taking and retrieving samples of the asteroid back to earth. 


    Below you see proof that I attempted to contact JAXA in order to get more photos of the asteroid released to the public. I will continue my effort to contact them, and hopefully we will see some amazing photos that we can explore and search for alien structures and evidence in.

    A Brazilian news channel released this TV news video of a eyewitness who noticed an oval shape in the overcast sky and started filming it. As he recorded, the UFO can be seen fluxing like the colors of a squid and then the UFO vanishes on camera. 


    At one point, the UFO opens at its bottom as if it were bringing something or someone in or out of the ship. 


    The UFO disappeared because it was observing and reading peoples thoughts below on the ground. Most UFOs have a detection system that will automatically (AI controlled) make the UFO vanish when its been detected, but for some reason this one allowed it to be filmed for about 20 seconds before it vanished. It appears the UFO was as intrigued with the eyewitness as the eyewitness was with the alien ship.

    Black UFO caught over Ardvasar, UK, on June 2018

    On June 12, 2018, a mother took pictures of a black UFO flying over Ardvasar, a village near the southern end of the Sleat peninsula, on the Isle of Skye, in Scotland.

    Witness statement:

    ***I WAS NOT PRESENT FOR THIS EVENT. SUBMITTING ON BEHALF OF MY PARENTS***

    Photo was sent to me by my parents. I got a text from my Dad telling me to check my email, saw the photo provided, and phoned them. My mother had been taking photos of her garden since the weather was nice (rare for the Isle of Skye). When she went indoors to check the pictures on her PC, only one photo had an object in the sky, at the top left of the picture. They saw nothing with their eyes at the time, heard nothing either, and the object is only in one photo.

    I aksed about the possibilities of it being a fly/moth/bee in the foreground or a seagull/eagle/other big bird in the near distance. They said there were no insects buzzing about due to a bit of a gusty breeze blowing, and there wasn't any birds flying about. She mentioned she took 3 or 4 pictures in very quick succession (she's a keen photographer and has a fancy DSLR with rapidfire functions) so if it was a bird it would have been in another picture.

    My Dad (massive UFO skeptic), who in the 80's was a member of the Royal Observer Corps (cold war spy basically) is highly trained in aircraft recognition, is a keen plane spotter/military fanboy and always has binoculars to hand was present, and he confirms there were no aircraft around, no helicopters, and he has no idea what is in the photo. In his words "It's a proper UFO, if I can't tell what it is then only God knows what it was".

    In the photo, zoom in to the top left area of clear sky next to the tree. There is a classic saucer shaped object, appearing slightly copper/bronze coloured top & bottom, and dark in the middle.

    Photo taken 12th June from the address provided (IV458RB) on the Sleat peninsula of the Isle of Skye facing south. The buildings visible on the hillside in the distance is the town called Mallaig on the mainland.

    This Is The Most Important Image Hubble Ever Captured

    This Is The Most Important Image Hubble Ever Captured

    Deep Astronomy has released a video which is said to contain some of the most important images to have ever been captured by the Hubble Telescope.

    The most important images ever captured by the Hubble Telescope

    These extraordinary images of Deep Space were not achieved without a fair share of struggle. Back in 1996, the scientists working with the Hubble Telescope had to fight to point the powerful equipment into an inky field which was believed at the time to be lacking both stars and planets.

    This was seen as high risk at the time as images from the Hubble Telescope are in constant demand and it was expected that the inky field that the scientists were so interested in would produce nothing of value to show for such hard work and expensive running time.

    However, the risky decision by the astronomers paid off significantly. The photons eventually began to register and, all of a sudden, the scientists were in possession of images of light flooding from more than three thousand different galaxies lying in the deep space.

    Some years later, the scientists working on the broad field project have discovered that this innocuous space of dark sky is a peephole to an extraordinary number of other galaxies. According to the experts, this solar system is only a tiny part of a vast network of planets and stars comprising around 100 billion different galaxies.

    The discovery of these galaxies is extraordinarily significant when it comes to studying space. The images captured by the Hubble not only show galaxies very similar to our own, which may suggest that there could be life reasonably close to this planet, but also galaxies in various stages of their history. Some of the galaxies are very new which could give scientists some insight into the initial stages of the creation of new worlds. On the opposite ends of the spectrum, some of the galaxies are nearing the end of their lives, some of which have collapsed altogether and some which are currently in the process of doing so. Exploring these newly discovered galaxies could give scientists invaluable information into the dawning days of our galaxy and the future that lies ahead for it.

    Fragments found for small asteroid that exploded over Russia last week

    By  in  

    The meteor was seen over Russia on June 21. Now scientists from Ural Federal University are reporting finding meteorite fragments from the event. Plus … why are so many large meteors seen over Russia?

    A bright meteor was seen in near daylight on June 21, 2018, over several Russian cities, including Lipetsk, which is located southeast of Moscow. There are also reports now of the meteor having been seen from Moscow itself. And now the first meteorite fragments are reportedly being found. The first to be found is about 1.18 inches (3 cm) across. Scientists from the Ural Federal University reported finding it near the town of Yelets. Search operations are still underway, as other fragments may be found in the area.

    The small space rock found this week is a stony meteorite, whose properties will be studied in detail in a laboratory.

    One of the 1st fragments found from the bright meteor seen over Russia on June 21, 2018, via vk.com.

    The fast fireball seen on June 21 produced an amazing smoke trail that remained visible during several minutes. NASA’s fireball records indicate the event occurred on June 21 at 01:16:20 UTC. Sensors detected that the space rock produced an explosion equivalent to 2.8 kilotons. That explosion size corresponds to the disintegration of a small asteroid of about 13 feet (4 meters) in diameter. That size is in contrast to the estimated 65-foot (20-meter) asteroid that exploded in the air over Chelyabinsk, Russia, in February 2013.

    Infrasound sensor detectors registered the low frequencies produced by the explosion of the space rock as it entered Earth’s atmosphere. And some people caught the meteor on dashboard cameras, as in the video at the top of this page by Alexander Dundin.

    Although intense friction with the air caused most of the space rock to disintegrate, small fragments have reached Earth’s surface.

    Location of Lipetsk, Russia, one of several cities over which the June 21 daylight meteor was seen.

    Image via World Atlas.

    Why so many meteor events over Russia? Russia is the largest country in the world, thus its large territorial extension makes it the target with most probability for a space rock to hit, after the seas. About 70 percent of our planet’s surface is covered by water, which means that most meteorites do fall into the sea.

    Science centers and museums around the world will celebrate Asteroid Day on June 30, an event to create awareness and educate our communities about asteroids.

    Bright twilight meteor seen over several Russian cities on June 21, 2018. Image is a screen shot from the video above.

    Twilight meteor over Russia, June 21, 2018.

    Bottom line: Images and video of the 13-foot (4-meter) asteroid seen in near daylight on June 21, 2018, over various Russian cities. It exploded in the air, but some fragments have reached the ground and the first fragments have been found. Plus … why so many large meteors are seen over Russia.

    Geologist Discusses Suspected Roswell UFO Crash Site Findings

    New Mexico geologist discusses suspected UFO crash site findings

    ROSWELL, N.M. (KRQE) – The Bureau of Land Management is taking an interest in a New Mexico geologist’s discoveries that he claims are out of this world. He believes he has found parts of the alleged UFO crash near Roswell in 1947.

    “Some of it could be trash, camper trash, but some of it could be interesting,” said Geologist Frank Kimbler.

    Kimbler distinctly remembers the moment he discovered debris from the suspected 1947 UFO crash site.

    “I started looking around all over the place, looking to see if the helicopters were going to fly over, because you get paranoid when you read the stories of about Roswell and what’s happened to people when they’ve come forward with stuff,” he said.

    Over the past eight years, Kimbler has dedicated himself to finding physical proof of the UFO, going out to the suspected site 75 miles northwest of Roswell about a dozen times.

    Using a metal detector, he’s collected about 20 metallic fragments the size of a fingernail.

    “Some of the material that I found out there has been tested and it has anomalies that suggest that it might be of extraterrestrial origin,” said Kimbler.

    Recently, Kimbler became afraid his research was in jeopardy when the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) contacted him, wanting to meet. 

    Kimbler said he was positive he was just a test away from discovering the truth.

    When the BLM called, he became a little paranoid and even removed his findings from the International UFO Museum in Roswell.

    “I said sure, about had a heart attack. I’m going, ‘Oh, they’re going to arrest me, they’re going to confiscate this material,’” said Kimbler. “I always thought that I was within my legal rights as a citizen of the U.S. to go out and metal detect.”

    Much to his relief, that wasn’t the case.

    “It had a happy ending. I got clarification on the rules and regulations from the BLM and there was no confiscation of materials,” Kimbler said.

    He believes the recent commercial interest in the site played a role in how the BLM got alerted to his presence and findings there.

    Kimbler, a researcher with the International UFO Museum who has been featured in several documentaries, says he will continue to try and find suspected debris but will work with the BLM to do it the right way.

    Enceladus “the only body besides Earth to satisfy all of the basic requirements for life,” Cassini reveals

    BY ALEXANDRU MICU

    Data beamed back by the Cassini spacecraft reveals that Enceladus, Saturn’s sixth-largest moon, isn’t shy about blasting large organic molecules into space.

    Enceladus interior.

    Hydrothermal processes in the moon’s rocky core could synthesize organics from inorganic precursors. Alternatively, these processes could be transforming preexisting organics by heating, or they could even generate geochemical conditions in the subsurface ocean of Enceladus that would allow possible forms of alien life to synthesize biological molecules.
    Image credits NASA/JPL-Caltech/Space Science Institute/LPG-CNRS/Nantes-Angers/ESA

    Mass spectrometry readings beamed back by NASA’s Cassini craft show that Enceladus is bursting with organic molecules. The moon’s icy surface is pockmarked with deep cracks that spew complex, carbon-rich compounds into space. Scientists at the Southwest Research Institute (SwRI) say these compounds are likely the result of interactions between the moon’s rocky core and warm waters from its subsurface ocean.

    Why so organic?

    We are, yet again, blown away by Enceladus, said SwRI’s Dr. Christopher Glein, co-author of a paper describin the discovery.

    “Now we’ve found organic molecules with masses above 200 atomic mass units. That’s over ten times heavier than methane. With complex organic molecules emanating from its liquid water ocean, this moon is the only body besides Earth known to simultaneously satisfy all of the basic requirements for life as we know it.”

    The Cassini mission, a cooperative project of NASA, ESA (European Space Agency) and the Italian Space Agency, is widely-held to be one of the most ambitious space exploration missions we’ve ever embarked upon. Launched on October 15, 1997, Cassini spent some 13 years studying the gas giant and its moons. The craft also flew by Venus (April 1998 and July 1999), Earth (August 1999), the asteroid 2685 Masursky, and Jupiter (December 2000), before settling in on Saturn’s orbit on July 1st, 2001.

    Enceladus.

    On September 15, 2017, NASA de-commissioned the aging craft with a bang: they deorbited Cassini, letting it fall towards Saturn’s core and burn up in its atmosphere.

    However, the wealth of information this tiny craft beamed back from its travels is still giving astronomers a lot to work on. Before its fiery demise, Cassini sampled the plume material ejected from the subsurface of Enceladus. Using its Cosmic Dust Analyzer (CDA) and the SwRI-led Ion and Neutral Mass Spectrometer (INMS) instruments, the craft analyzed both the plume itself and Saturn’s E-ring — which is formed by ice grains from the plumes trapped in Saturn’s gravity well.

    During one of Cassini’s particularly close flybys of Enceladus (Oct. 28, 2015), the INMS detected molecular hydrogen in the moon’s plume ejections. Previous flybys also revealed the presence of a global subsurface ocean and a rocky core. This was the first indication that the moon can boast active geochemical below the surface, most likely between water and rocks in hydrothermal vents.

    The presence of hydrogen was also grounds for great enthusiasm at NASA — the element is a known source of chemical energy for microbes living in hydrothermal vents here on good ol’ Earth.

    Once you have identified a potential food source for microbes, the next question to ask is ‘what is the nature of the complex organics in the ocean?'” says SwRI’s Dr. Hunter Waite, INMS principal investigator and paper coauthor. “This paper represents the first step in that understanding — complexity in the organic chemistry beyond our expectations!

    The findings are significant enough to influence further exploration, Glen believes. Any spacecraft that flies towards Enceladus in the future should make a point of going through its plume to analyze these complex organic molecules with a high-resolution mass spectrometer to “help us determine how they were made.”

    “We must be cautious, but it is exciting to ponder that this finding indicates that the biological synthesis of organic molecules on Enceladus is possible.”

    The paper “Macromolecular organic compounds from the depths of Enceladus” has been published in the journal Nature.

     AFP

    In tegenstelling tot wat eerder werd gedacht, is “Oumuamua”, de eerste waargenomen interstellaire bezoeker van ons zonnestelsel, geen asteroïde maar een komeet. Dat concluderen wetenschappers van het coördinatiecentrum voor aardscheerders (NEOCC) van het Europees Ruimtevaartagentschap (ESA) in het Italiaanse Frascati.

    De wetenschappers analyseerden de baan van het sigaarvormige object. De vorm van de baan kan niet alleen verklaard worden door de zwaartekracht, schrijft vakblad Nature.

    “Oumuamua”, dat vermoedelijk tussen 400 en 800 meter lang is, kruiste in 2017 de binnenste regionen van ons zonnestelsel en zette nadien zijn koers voort in de interstellaire ruimte. Het ging om de eerste waargenomen bezoeker uit een ander zonnestelsel. Maar astronomen gaan ervan uit dat het wel vaker voorkomt, maar tot nu toe steeds onopgemerkt bleef.

    Odd Glowing Light Caught In The Sky Over Gelsenkirchen, Germany

    On June 22, 2018 the witness recorded a strange object in the night sky over Gelsenkirchen, Germany.


    The unknown object in the sky emits a pulsating bright orange light and the witness wonders whether it is a UFO or something else.

    The light is not coming from city lights or laser beams from the ground, there is clearly an object in the sky that gives off the glow.

    Bright UFO Observed Travelling Above Wales

    ufo-uk

    A strange glowing sphere was spotted flying over Wales, which had many conspiracy theorists suggesting it was a UFO.

    The video of the UFO sighting was reportedly shot in north Wales. It shows the ball of light moving across the night sky.

    In the video, the cameraman said that the object was bright enough that it can be seen with the naked eye.

    He wasn’t sure whether the object was travelling towards him or away from him. He concluded that it was not a spotlight.

    According to the witness, it appeared to change direction as it was travelling across the sky.

    The mysterious UFO sighting video sparked debates online, with commenters discussing what the object might have been.

    One commenter said that they had seen something similar down south a few years ago.

    Another one added that the UFO in the video has no navigation lights or any frame. He noted that it definitely met the criteria for a UFO whatever it is and whatever its origin.

    However, some were not convinced what the video has shown.

    One viewer said that it could be a helicopter ride at an amusement park or at a fair. He added that it looked like a Ferris wheel towards the end.

    The Lights Above the New Jersey Turnpike in 2001

    Description: This is a brief clip of the massive UFO sighting over New Jersey on the night of July 14th, 2001. It shows the formation of the lights as they appeared to be formed in a "v-shaped/diamond shape". The object cruises slowly over the town as some of the lights do flicker briefly. If you see carefully, they flicker in nearly the same spot as the object maintains perfect speed.

    Several news organisations revealed in 2017 the existence of the Advanced Aviation Threat Identification Program (AATIP), an American government-funded investigation into UFOs from 2007 to 2012. However, the $22 million program wasn’t the first of its kind.

    Official government studies on UFOs officially started in the 1940s with Project Sign, gathering some of the most credible footages of the aerial phenomenon to date. Interest in UFOs and aliens across the world reignited with the revelation in 2017 that the American government was actively investigating UFOs.

    One of the most credible modern UFO sightings took place in New Jersey Turnpike.

    On July 14, 2001, motorists on the New Jersey Turnpike stopped alongside a highway and looked towards the sky. The reason for their strange action was the sighting of mysterious orange and yellow lights in a V formation above the Arthur Kill Waterway between Staten Island in New York and Carteret in New Jersey for around 15 minutes just after midnight.

    One of the witnesses was Lt. Daniel Tarrant of Carteret Police Department. Many metro area residents from the Throgs Neck Bridge on Long Island and Fort Lee, New Jersey near the George Washington Bridge also witnessed the same.

    Air traffic controllers denied any unusual sightings that night, but New York Strange Phenomena Investigators (NY-SPI) group claimed they obtained FAA radar data that corroborated the UFO sightings.

    In special reports, this week’s files cover: Astronaut Major Gordon Cooper Believed in UFOs, Russian Cosmonauts and Generals Confirm UFOs Are Real, Shocking Truth and Sun Stands Still Over Israel. Mars Has Liquid Water, Trump to Establish Space Force, Yahweh (God) and His Flying Machines, and Earth Hit by a Comet and a Great Flood

     Unidentified Aerial Phenomena sightings were reported over California, Florida, Massachusetts, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio. Oregon, Texas, Washington and West Virginia

    Unidentified Aerial Phenomena sightings were reported over, Brazil, Canada, China, Dominican Republic, Iran, and England in the United Kingdom.

    The Filer Research Institute feels the scientific study of UFOs is for the benefit of humankind and is an important endeavor. The US Air Force investigated UFOs publicly for more than twenty years under Project Blue Book; and I continue this advanced research. I believe the God of the universe has spread life throughout the cosmos and UFO’s are visiting us in ever-increasing numbers.

    Major George Filer Editor of The National UFO Center, would like to invite join him in Mt Shasta this summer July 27-29th 2018. He will present a wonderful program at the “From Venus with Love” conference.

    Astronaut Major Gordon Cooper Believed in UFOs

     Major Cooper was a firm believer in UFOs. While flying with several other USAF pilots over Germany in 1957, we sighted numerous radiant flying discs above us. We couldn’t tell how high they were. We couldn’t get anywhere near their altitude.

    While piloting an F-86 Sabrejet over Western Germany. They were metallic, saucer-shaped discs at considerable altitude and could out-maneuver all American fighter planes.

    Major Cooper also testified before the United Nations: “I believe that these extra-terrestrial vehicles and their crews are visiting this planet from other planets… Most astronauts were reluctant to discuss UFOs.” “I did have occasion in 1951 to have two days of observation of many flights of them, of different sizes, flying in fighter formation, generally from east to west over Europe.”

    One of the original Mercury Astronauts and the last American to fly in space alone. On May 15, 1963 he shot into space in a Mercury capsule for a 22 orbit journey around the world. During the final orbit,

    Major Gordon Cooper told the tracking station at Muchea (near Perth, Australia) that he could see a glowing, greenish object ahead of him quickly approaching his capsule. The UFO was real and solid, because it was picked up by Muchea’s tracking radar. Cooper’s sighting was reported by the National Broadcast Company, which was covering the flight step by step; but when Cooper landed, reporters were told that they would not be allowed to question him about the UFO sighting.

    In 1957, when Cooper was 30 and a Captain, he was assigned to Fighter Section of the Experimental Flight Test Engineering Division at Edwards AFB in California. He acted as a test pilot and project manager. On May 3 of that year, he had a crew setting up an Askania cinetheodolite precision landing system on a dry lake bed. This cinetheodolite system would take pictures at one frame per second as an aircraft landed. The crew consisted of James Bittick and Jack Getty’s who began work at the site just before 08:00, using both still and motion picture cameras. According to his accounts, later that morning they returned to report to

    Cooper that they saw a “strange-looking, saucer-like” aircraft that did not make a sound either on landing or take-off. A camera crewman approached the saucer, it rose up above the area and flew off at a speed faster than any known aircraft.”

    According to his accounts, Cooper realized that these men, who on a regular basis have seen experimental aircraft flying and landing around them as part of their job of filming those aircraft, were clearly worked up and unnerved. They explained how the saucer hovered over them, landed 50 yards away from them using three extended landing gears and then took off as they approached for a closer look. They took photographs and film. There was a special Pentagon number to call to report such incidents: he called and soon was reported up the chain of command until he was instructed by a general to have the film developed, but to make no prints of it, and send it right away in a locked courier pouch. As he had not been instructed to not look at the negatives before sending them, he did. He said the quality of the photography was excellent as would be expected from the experienced photographers who took them. What he saw was exactly what they had described to him. He did not see the film before everything was sent away. He expected that there would be a follow up investigation since an aircraft of unknown origin had landed in a highly classified military installation, but nothing was ever said of the incident again. He was never able to track down what happened to those photos. He assumed that they ended up going to the Air Force’s official UFO investigation, Project Blue Book, which was based at Wright Patterson Air Force Base.

    He held claim until his death that the U.S. government was indeed covering up information about UFOs. He pointed out that there were hundreds of reports made by his fellow pilots, many coming from military jet pilots sent to respond to radar or visual sightings from the ground.[7]

    In his memoirs, Cooper wrote he had seen other unexplained aircraft several times during his career, and also said hundreds of similar reports had been made. He further claimed these sightings had been “swept under the rug” by the U.S. government. In 1978 he also testified before the UN on the topic.[5]

    Throughout his later life Cooper expressed repeatedly in interviews he had seen UFOs and described his recollections for the documentary Out of the Blue.

    And according to a taped interview by J. L. Ferrando, Major Cooper said: “For many years I have lived with a secret, in a secrecy imposed on all specialists in astronautics. I can now reveal that every day, in the USA, our radar instruments capture objects of form and composition unknown to us. And there are thousands of witness reports and a quantity of documents to prove this, but nobody wants to make them public. Why? Because authority is afraid that people may think of God knows what kind of horrible invaders. So the password still is: We have to avoid panic by all means.” I believe that these extra-terrestrial vehicles and their crews are visiting this planet from other planets. Most astronauts were reluctant to discuss UFOs.

    “I was furthermore a witness to an extraordinary phenomenon, here on this planet Earth. It happened a few months ago in Florida. There I saw with my own eyes a defined area of ground being consumed by flames, with four indentions left by a flying object which had descended in the middle of a field.

    Beings had left the craft (there were other traces to prove this). They seemed to have studied topography, they had collected soil samples and, eventually, they returned to where they had come from, disappearing at enormous speed… I happen to know that authority did just about everything to keep this incident from the press and TV, in fear of a panicky reaction from the public.”

    Russian Cosmonauts and Generals Confirm UFOs Are Real.

    COSMONAUT MAJOR GENERAL VLADIMIR KOVALYONOK:
    Saljut VI Mission 1981

    Many cosmonauts have seen phenomena which are far beyond the experiences of earthmen. For ten years I never spoke on such things. “The encounter you asked me about happened on May 5, 1981, at about 6 PM, during the Saljut Mission. At that time we were over the area of South Africa, moving towards the area of the Indian Ocean. I just made some gymnastic exercises, when I saw in front of me, through a porthole, an object which I could not explain. It is impossible to determine distances in Space. A small object can appear large and far away and the other way around. Sometimes a cloud of dust appears like a large object. Anyway, I saw this object and then something happened I could not explain, something impossible according to the laws of Physics. The object had this shape, elliptical, and flew with us. From a frontal view it looked like it would rotate in flight direction.

    It only flew straight, but then a kind of explosion happened, very beautiful to watch, of golden light. This was the first part. Then, one or two seconds later, a second explosion followed somewhere else and two spheres appeared, golden and very beautiful. After this explosion I just saw white smoke, then a cloud-like sphere. Before we entered the darkness, we flew through the terminator, the twilight-zone between day and night. We flew eastwards, and when we entered the darkness of the Earth shadow, I could not see them any longer. The two spheres never returned.” During his lecture Michael Hesemann presented filmed interviews with four Cosmonauts each with similar stories. Thanks to Michael Hesemann

    Shocking Truth

    • Dan Johnson writes, This is from a book that Frank sent out a few years back called, The Shocking Truth pages 54 and 55 by Albert Coe. I believe that it explains why water is so important and why the ETs come to this planet for water.
      In momentarily side tracking our tour, I believe that you will have a clearer understanding of the tremendous forces involved and why this huge ship must carry its own water supply, but we do hope, that the everlasting probe of mans mind will someday surmount this problem and the research of science, solve the riddle of lesser dynamics, in creation of this precious fluid. In a realm of possibility it could also open the way t o penetrate the fringes of infinity.
    • This manifestation is peculiar only to certain planets, in comparable placement to a sun, with its appearance and continuance dependent on mass, thermal mechanics, gravitational forces and energy synchronization between planet and sun, in any given solar system. An excellent example of these trends may be gamed, in an analysis of Mars and Earth, two of the three water bearing planets of this system. (The 3rd being Venus)

    The location, bulk and dynamics of Earth are ideal in producing and retention of abundant water in its atmosphere and seas, for an extended period of time, still a depreciation is evident in our thirteen thousand years of record.

    Sun Stands Still Over Israel

     In the Bible Joshua 10-12 states “After an all-night march from Gilgal, Joshua took them by surprise. 10 The Lord threw them into confusion before Israel, so Joshua and the Israelites defeated them completely at Gibeon. Israel pursued them along the road going up to Beth Horon and cut them down all the way to Azekah and Makkedah. 11 As they fled before Israel on the road down from Beth Horon to Azekah, the Lord hurled large hailstones down on them, and more of them died from the hail than were killed by the swords of the Israelites. 12 On the day the Lord gave the Amorites over to Israel, Joshua said to the Lording the presence of Israel:

    • ‘Sun, stand still over Gibeon,
      and you, moon, over the Valley of Aijalon.’
      13 So the sun stood still,
      and the moon stopped,
      till the nation avenged itself on its enemies,
    • as it is written in the Book of Jashar.
    • The sun stopped in the middle of the sky and delayed going down about a full day. 14 There has never been a day like it before or since, a day when the Lord listened to a human being. Surely the Lord was fighting for Israel! Then Joshua returned with all Israel to the camp at Gilgal.

    Sun, stand still over Gibeon

    Some have argued that evidence for this long day is found in other cultures:  It is interesting to note that parallel accounts in the records of other nations show that the incident of “Joshua’s Long Day” is not an isolated one. There is indisputable evidence from the modern science of ethnology that such an event occurred as Joshua records. In the ancient Chinese writings there is a legend of a long day. The Incas of Peru and the Aztecs of Mexico have a like record. There is a Babylonian and Persian legend of a day that was miraculously extended. Herodotus, an ancient historian, recounts that while in Egypt, priest showed him their temple records, and that he read of a day which was twice the natural length of any day that had ever been recorded (Robert Boyd, Boyds Bible Handbook, pp. 122,123).

    Joshua’s army had marched all night from Gilgal to Gibeon, a distance of twenty miles, to do battle with their enemies. Joshua needed the battle time prolonged because five strong kings had brought out their armies to fight his army in the open country. Joshua had the enemy on the run and he did not want them to get back to their fortified cities. More time was needed for his troops to catch them. To prevent their return more daylight was needed. Hence, he asked God to lengthen the day.

    It has been pointed out that if in fact the earth was stopped for a period of twenty-four hours, inconceivable catastrophe would likely befall Earth and everything on its surface. Those who believe in the omnipotence of God would believe that Yahweh could have prevented such catastrophe

    It takes 24 hours for the Earth to rotate but the sun never stops shining. God could have sent a bright light that are sometimes seen shining down from an UFOs lighting up the whole countryside. God might have moved the sun in space to continue shinning down on the Earth or did the Earth slow its daily revolution. As the Earth rotates roughly half the Earth gets dark. A large mirror or shiny spaceship could shine the sun’s rays on the dark side of Earth as the Russians have proposed to do with a huge

    mirrored satellite called Mayak that orbits the poles or is fixed in space to reflect the sun’s rays down to Earth. An advanced technology could have accomplished this miracle. Ezekiel describes a craft that could have held the mirror. http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/next/space/crowdfunded-russian-satellite-could-be-worlds-first-space-monument/

    Trump to Establish Sixth Branch Space Force

     President Trump officially directed the Pentagon to establish a sixth branch of the U.S. military in space on Monday. Speaking at a National Space Council meeting at the White House, Mr. Trump called for a “Space Force” to ensure American dominance on the high frontier.

    The president also signed his administration’s third Space Policy Directive, calling for establishment of new protocols and procedures to manage and monitor the increasing numbers of satellites in low-Earth orbit and the tens of thousands of pieces of space junk and debris that pose an increasing threat to costly spacecraft. Trump states, “My administration is reclaiming America’s heritage as the world’s greatest space-faring nation,he went on.The essence of the American character is to explore new horizons and to tame new frontiers. But our destiny, beyond the Earth, is not only a matter of national identity, but a matter of national security.” He said when it comes to defending America, “it is not enough to merely have an American presence in space. We must have American dominance in space.”

    He wants to return humans to the moon before eventual missions to Mars and streamline federal space bureaucracy..

    These Files have often discussed the growing space craft arsenal for years. William Tompkins and others have claimed the US had military assets in space since the 1960s. The president is acknowledging something that is already there. Military assets in space keep track of alien craft and somea reports indicate there are tracking and targeting ET craft.

    Mars Has Liquid Water

    Pools of liquid water may even now exist just a few meters below the Martian surface, according to new research. The finding hints that humans may one day be able to tap into Mars‘s watery bounty.

    Although the surface of Mars is too frigid for liquid water to be stable, pockets of water underground could be kept warm enough by an insulating blanket of porous sediment, an international team writes in the November issue of the journal Icarus.

    “Liquid Water Recently Seen on Mars?”

    The new theory is based on studies of Mars’s biggest outflow channels, which stretch for hundreds of kilometers across the southern circum-Chryse region. The ancient channels were likely carved by gushing torrents of water, each hundreds to thousands of times larger than the Mississippi River. These massive rivers are believed to have erupted from underground sources, suggesting that shallow groundwater reservoirs were once relatively common in Mars’s upper crust.

    In fact, collapsed terrain on the floors of the outflow channels could be showing where some now empty reservoirs once existed. (Related: “Ancient Mars Had Vast Ocean, New Evidence Shows.”)

    Mars Groundwater Would Be Easy to Tap

    If they exist, today’s Martian groundwater reservoirs might be similar to the aquifers that lie beneath icy permafrost in Earth’s northern regions, said study co-author Jeffrey Kargel, a research scientist at the University of Arizona. That means Martian reservoirs might be found by searching for deep dunes overlying known water-rich areas, such as salt beds or glacial ice. (See “Mars Water Discovered, ‘Tasted’ by Lander—A First.”)

    “From a biological perspective, the presence of liquid water is the only constraint for life development on Mars, given the presence of different energy sources and alternative radiation-protection mechanisms,” said co-author Alberto Fairén of NASA’s Ames Research Center.

    “Molecular adaptations may have enabled bacteria or other microorganisms to survive in the Martian underground without energy from the sun, just as some microbes thrive in icy subsurface areas on Earth,”Fairén added. Thanks to National Geographic

    Newton is a large crater on Mars, with a diameter close to 300 km.[1] It is located south of the planet’s equator in the heavily cratered highlands of TerravSirenum.

    The side of the crator gullies shows where water is leaking to the bottom where dam like structures have been built to collect the water. Many crators have tubes to carry the water to various locations where it can grow crops, water animals and Martians. We speculate many martians live underground due frequent asteroid bombardment.

    Yahweh (God) and His Flying Machines

    Bill Bean writes the Bible tells of UFOs and the glory of God’s craft. In Hebrew chariots, the glory of the Lord and clouds refer to anything that flies like UFOs.

    The Hovering Vehicle Glory and Light in Exodus 40:34-38.

    Then a cloud covered the tent of the congregation, and the glory of the Lord filled the tabernacle. And Moses was not able to enter into the tent of the congregation, because the cloud abode thereon, and the glory of the Lord filled the tabernacle… And when the cloud was taken up from over the tabernacle, the children of Israel went onward in all their journeys:  But if the cloud were not taken up, then they journeyed not till the day that it was taken up. For the cloud of the Lord was upon the tabernacle by day, and fire was on it by night, in the sight of all the house of Israel, throughout all their journeys. The flying object remained in the presence of the nation wherever it went.

    Spinning Chariots of Fire Take Elijah Up

     2 Kings 2:11-12.

    And it came to pass, as they still went on, and talked, that, behold, there appeared a chariot of fire, and horses of fire, and parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven. And Elisha saw it, and he cried my father, my father, the chariot of Israel, and the horsemen thereof. And he saw him no more: and he took hold of his own clothes, and rent them in two pieces.

    Elijah and Elisha are talking and suddenly a bright cavalry of glowing vehicles appears and Elijah ascends into the sky in a spinning-flying vehicle. The word translated into horses, ‘cuwc’, means rapid flight. This is most likely the army spoken of where hosts appears.

    Demons may have found modern beliefs in aliens to be a great cover for their operations that have been reported for thousands of years. In cultures throughout the world, there are tales of intimate encounters with otherworldly beings. Though it cannot always be explained, paranormal phenomena is reported by numerous and credible witnesses. Thanks to Bill Bean

    Earth Hit by a Comet and a Great Flood

     The Sumerian language is well-understood, and for many years archaeologists have studied the “myths” told about the Sumerian “gods” in stories such as the Epic of Gilgamesh.  An Ancient Middle East archeologist named Zechariah Sitchin revolutionized our understanding of these Sumerian “myths”. Sitchin realized that eleven of the “gods” described in the Sumerian records were actually the heavenly bodies of our solar system (the planets plus the sun and moon). Sitchin further realized that the Sumerians had a knowledge of the outer planets that, by all rights, they shouldn’t have had. Sitchin proved this to the world by submitting to NASA detailed descriptions of the outer planets (as found in the Sumerian records) BEFORE the NASA space probes reached these planets. Images sent back by the probes confirmed that the ancient Sumerians indeed knew what these planets looked like.  Just as interesting, the Sumerians always described their gods (the planets) starting with Pluto, then Neptune, Uranus, etc., as if they were seeing the planets from a heavenly body (or spacecraft) that was entering our solar system from the outside.

    Whether one agrees with Zecharia Sitchin or chooses to interpret Sumerian texts differently, it is clear that these ancient writings speak of technologies and sciences that we have only recently developed. It was not until we had satellite mapping capability, and the sciences of anthropology, archaeology, and genetics that we could correctly interpret these messages cast forward as myths and legends by a dying civilization, possibly to warn us of the comet, symbolized by the mythological Serpent in the sky (Thanks to Wood and Campbell).

     In ancient Egypt the serpent was the symbol for duality, such as lies at the origin of ‘good’ and ‘evil’. It was a symbol for both unchecked chaos and multiplicity, and for higher intellect, synthesis, and creation. The Cobra, for example, was the symbol of Lower Egypt, and represented duality as a primordial creative impulse (West, 1993: 132). The comet or Serpent in the sky was known to bring both destruction and renewal, (duality) as expressed in the concept of the First Time (Zep Tepi).

    They also conclude that we are rapidly entering a window of time for Earth-orbit-crossing comets, indicating that the Great Serpent of legend which brought destruction via fire and water to Earth may soon return (cf. Shoemaker-Levy 9 and Jupiter).

    A collision of a comet with Earth is theorized by Kristan-Tollmann and Tollmann to have occurred 9565 years ago, based on their worldwide study of myths and legends. In order to explain convergent accounts from around the globe, they suggest that the comet broke up into seven main fragments, all of which slammed into the oceans creating giant tsunamis that ravaged the continents. This catastrophe brought earthquakes, flood, volcanoes, and darkness around the globe. The ice covering much of the northern hemisphere melted. Only little fragments struck the continents (e.g. Australia), according to their theory. In myths the gods are blamed for causing this disaster.  Whole islands are made up of bones of animals and people who were killed by the tsunamis. High mountains caves inland also have the bones indicating tremendous waves sweeping the Earth.

      In ancient time Paleolithic claiming cave men indicate civilization actually was universal. There was a universal civilization. We are seeing the early attempts now to reconstruct the universal system.

    Sophisticated 400 foot tall pyramids were built 5000 years ago in England, Egypt, South America, Indus Valley and Samaria.

    The real history of humans of Earth has been lost and there is some evidence of the ancient civilization with modern humans going back 140.000 years.. The former civilization was probably lost during ice ages and flood. In the myths of the 59 northern and the legends of several dozen central and southern American tribes of Indians, the same elements of the legend of the Flood as in the Bible are found. The Earth experience global warming and melting of glaciers coupled with disaster from the sky..

    The ancient ceremonies of Halloween celebrated the Day of the Dead on October 31. Pleiades culminates on this day. When midway between rising and setting.

    the Pleiades culminates – reaches its highest point in the heavens – at midnight. Great meteor shower from Pleiades (heart of the Bull) denizen of meteor of the Taurid fireballs. A faded remnant of great meteor shower that destroyed much on Earth.

    The Day of the Dead survives, celebrates life and honors the dead throughout the world In Asia, there are similar festivals. For example, the Chinese celebrated the Ghost Festival, which was a day to pay homage to dead ancestors. The Japanese celebrated something similar called O-bonor merely Bon. Even Vietnam has a variant of the Ghost Festival called Tet Trung Nguyen. In Korea, there is Chuseok or Hankawi, in which deceased ancestors are ritualized. In Nepal, there is the cow pilgrimage called Gia Jatra to honor the recently deceased. In the Philippines, there is the Day of the Dead (Araw ng mga Patay), where tombs are cleaned and repainted. The list goes on and on (see reference 5). The Pleiades (/ˈplaɪ.ədiːz, ˈpliːə-/, also known as the Seven Sisters  are an open star cluster containing middle-aged, hot B stars located in the constellation of Taurus. It is among the nearest star clusters to Earth and is the cluster most obvious to the naked eye where the comet appeared to originate.

    It seems no coincidence that cultures all around the world in both present and ancient times have had a holiday when the dead were remembered and animals were sacrificed. We can make a pretty strong argument that this holiday goes back to a time when all the peoples lived together—and then they took this holiday to various parts of the world.

    Otherwise, it seems strange and difficult to explain how these cultures developed celebrations that are so similar. This would likely push the true origin of “Halloween” and these other “days of the dead” to the time before the dispersion at Babel (Genesis 11), over 4,200 years ago, after which different early cultures began to vary in its practice.

    Noah’s Ark

    Was it a day to remember those who died in the Flood and a continuation of the sacrifices that Noah made after coming off the Ark? Because the celebrations call for the remembrance of the dead and have sacrifices, it is reminiscent of the large sacrifice that Noah and his family performed after the Flood. This would also explain why many other cultures have a variant of this regular sacrifice. When Noah and his family exited the Ark, they offered sacrifices to God

    Like the memory of a loved one that never fades, Dia de Los Muertos also survives started by the Aztecs some 3,000 years ago. The festival couldn’t be quashed. It has also moved to certain regions of the United States. In Arizona, for example, there are more than a dozen events that mark the occasion to honor the dead. http://www.chuchotezvous.ru/mythological-disasters/867.html

    Filer’s Files #25 – 2018 Astronauts UFOs Are Real - PART II

    UFO Sightings in the United States

    California Object

    Victorville — Me and my wife were going to run a few errands when we noticed a strange round cloud on May 25, 2018. It was weird to us because it was the only cloud in the sky that day. I took a picture of it at 6:51 PM Pacific time. We went on with our business and came out the store at 7:31pm and the cloud was still there with a chemtrail through it. I found it odd and took 2 pictures while on the freeway and wanted to capture the beautiful view and cloud but noticed a round object in the picture. At first I thought it was a lens flare but it was too large and solid looking. Thanks to MUFON CMS

     Florida Lights

    Key West — Submitting this on behalf of “N,” a long time friend and work partner. On June 13, 2018, N was on a boat as usual offshore about a mile north-west of Key West. He was looking west admiring the sunset and noticed an unidentifiable object moving in a rapid, irregular fashion in the sky. N has been a sober and professional mariner in Key West for 18 years and has never seen anything like this. The object appeared partly transparent before briefly glowing white and orb like all around, then it disappeared. N used his Smartphone to take photos and it appeared in three out of four photos. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    Massachusetts Boomerang

    Visiting my family at the home where I grew up, after everyone else in the house was asleep, I was sitting on the back stoop, in view of the woods on May 25, 2018, feeling calm and peaceful I silently (in my head) invited any ships in the area to reveal themselves.

    Within roughly a minute, a chevron (or triangular/boomerang) shaped object appeared over the woods, partially obscured by the tree line. I counted five green lights on the bottom of the object, which glided up slowly from the point of materialization at an angle that allowed me to view its full shape.

    Viewing this object, I felt a sense of joy and I was invited to meet the occupants of the object. I declined, and thanked them for trusting me. Almost instantly, the object dematerialized. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    Missouri Object

    Moscow Mills — Driving down Graven’s Road I noticed it hovering to my right as I was driving on June 19, 2018 . I first thought it was a blimp. It was gray and white in color and then started to move left to right very quickly. Wished I could pull over to take a picture but there were no sides to the road. I lost sight of the object when a jet flew right next to it and then it quickly shifted to the left and disappeared.

    Thanks to MUFON CMS

    New Jersey Disc

    Perth — 1. I was outside talking sitting down in the porch with my friend Johnnie.
    2. Johnnie saw it and asked me if the object was a helicopter, we stared at it and I said no it can’t be, there’s no noise.
    3. I thought it was a huge drone.
    4. It seemed stationary and seemed to transform like it was getting ready for something. It had surface reflections and what looked like bluish lights, slow robotic movements.
    5. Excitement and curiosity. 6. It disappeared. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    New York Disc

     NYC — We were on a boat by the Hudson River. We were on the upper deck of the boat.

    No windows to reflect any lights.  Thanks to MUFON CMS

     North Carolina Lights

    ‘Mills River — My husband was standing at the front door about to head out, while I was reading on the couch June 16, 2018.. When he hollered for me to join him. I did, and in amazement I saw 4 bright orange lights in the sky, moving SE very slowly. At first, I thought it was lanterns, but these didn’t move like lanterns. I hollered for my teen to come record for me and she caught a video which I have. We observed one of the lights suddenly blink of existence, and the final 3 formed a triangle pointed to the left and shot straight up into the sky. We were all absolutely amazed and my youngest was terrified. I’m honestly still in amazementThanks to MUFON CMS

    Ohio Light

    Strongsville — I was leaving work on June 16, 2018, when in the southwestern sky, I saw an orange ball of light with a lighter orange halo that changed shape as a parachute might. It was the height of an airplane or slightly lower. It moved up in altitude smoothly for a minute, then moved back down, then up and out of my view after a total of 5 minutes. My impression was that it looked like a hot air balloon (?) Thanks to William Puckett, Director Http://www.UFOsnw.com,

    Oregon Light

     Portland — 1st UFO was photographed on may-17-18, 2018, at 6:18 PM, Was photographing the moon with 800mm lens, saw a flash reflection. UFO Lasted about 25 seconds.

    2nd UFO on 06-22-18 @ 3:49:41 PM was photographed with a 300mm lens, same, saw a flash
    reflection, UFO lasted about 30 seconds.

     Texas Disc

    Gatesville — We were taking a picture of a bird on our pond and got something in the sky we can’t explain.

    Photo was taken on June 1, 2018. Thanks to MUFON CMS

     Washington Lights

    SeaTac — I was at my parent’s house celebrating father’s day on June 17, 2018, when my dad noticed something in the sky. I came over and had to crouch down to finally see it. It was very high and initially looked like a bubble. It was round in shape and it seemed to be reflective of the sun. After grabbing a pair of binoculars, I could see the object was a transparent sphere but

    lined with lights around the circumference of the perimeter. I just didn’t like not knowing what it was. After seeing the first one, another one came up from the left of where we were and stayed idle. My brother who came over to see what my father and I saw. We noticed a small black object also moving similar to the orbs. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    West Virginia Orb

     Crum — I was taking pictures of the clouds and sunset at 5:30 pm on June 15, 2018. At the time of the photo there was no birds of any kind flying.  I didn’t even notice it until later when I was checking my photos. I took dozens of photos that day. And this was the only image with this strange dark looking object in it. Thanks to MUFON CMS

     Worldwide UFO Sightings

    Brazil Object

     Recife, Brazil to Sao Paulo –I was in a commercial airplane flying from to Sao Paulo. I was taking photos out of the plane window of the sunset. I noticed something unusual and kept taking photos. Later when I studied the photos, I noticed dark disc-shaped objects and lights. It looked like they were waiting for something to happen. Photos after this showed what appeared to be orange UFO’s ascending out of the sun. Later, I researched and found orange UFO’s like these are seen all over the world but nobody knows what they are. Thanks to MUFON CMS

    Canada Orb

     Scarborough, Ontario — While outside afternoon work break on May 25, 2018, noticed a high distant flashing red -white light to the east. It was moving directly west -east half mile away when it stopped for about thirty seconds. It also was then flashing quite extreme of light. I alerted a co-worker and pointed out to him. He could now see it as I pulled out my camera and zoomed in and took some pictures. In two pictures with some detail captured this unknown object. The pictures were taken 3:25 pm. As I had taken about 10 pictures it was moving further away. That’s when I could not see it like it just disappeared. Thanks again for your strong interest into the matter. Paul Shishis

    China Orbs

    Dan Dong — I am from Finland and I was visiting China on July 14, 2013, visiting my wife`s family. My wife and two kids returned to our 5th floor apartment at 8.30 pm. When I looked out of the window I saw three hovering and flashing objects on the side of the 30 stories high apartment building, which is less than one mile away. They rose slowly and moved slowly flashing red, green, blue and white. My family and my wife’s family all saw the lights for 30 minutes that climbed so high they could not be observed. I took several digital pictures and short video with Canon Ixus 220 HS. In some pictures objects seemed triangular and in others doughnut shaped, Thanks to MUFON CMS

    The US Government On The Verge Of Confiscating Supposed Debris Of The Roswell UFO Crash

    In 2011, a man discovered a number of artifacts in Roswell, New Mexico, where an alien spacecraft had supposedly crashed in 1947.

    He took the mysterious metallic pieces to a number of labs for testing. Results came back showing that the mysterious artifacts were not from Earth. 

    “…either the lab made an analytical error or the material is not from Earth.”

    The Roswell case, also dubbed the Roswell UFO incident, refers to the alleged crash of an alien spacecraft in Roswell, New Mexico, in the United States, on July 10. 1947.

    The event marked the birth of modern ufology and led to numerous debates, theories, and speculations about the existence of extraterrestrial life.

    Many others consider these claims totally unfounded.

    But despite this, millions of people have since become firm believers in alien life, despite skeptics arguing that the event that occurred on July 10, 1947, was not related to extraterrestrial life in any way.

    The ultimate truth is that when speaking about the Roswell crash, everyone wants’s evidence to back up the claims.

    And while many people have claimed to have found pieces of the alleged UFO that crashed in New Mexico no one has approached the matter with scientific thinking.

    That’s why in 2011, a UFO investigator said he discovered a peculiar material at the site where he believes the alien ship crashed in Roswell and even decided to perform lab tests on the strange piece, in order to prove it was part of a spaceship.

    An alleged fragment of the UFO that crashed near Roswell, New Mexico in 1947

    The man behind the ‘sensational’ discovery was Frank Kimbler who was a teacher of geology and earth sciences at the New Mexico Military Institute in Roswell.

    When Mr. Kimbler arrived for the first time as a professor in the area, he thought it would be cool to investigate the local UFO legend: the crash of an alleged extraterrestrial space ship alien ship.

    He thought it would be fun to search the area where the UFO had allegedly crashed and disintegrated in 1947, as well as to research what the military may have done to cover up any evidence of a possible alien ship.

    Eventually, Mr. Kimbler decided it would be a good idea to start off his investigation by analyzing different satellite photos. He found that certain areas where the alleged ship had crashed appeared to have been burned, with unnatural geological features.

    Carrying a metal detector, he managed to sneak into the area and find fragments of a strange metal (probably an alloy), in addition to some buttons that match those used by military personnel in the middle of the last century.

    According to Alejandro Rojas from openminds.Tv who covered the discovery in 2011, Mr. Kimbler discovered “that the object was most likely about ¾ of a mile long and a few hundred feet wide, and facing the direction witnesses had reported. He also noticed this area had very straight edges, something unusual for a natural occurrence.”

    The information gathered via satellite images, and in-situ offered more questions than answers.

    Mr. Kimbler’s goal was to find physical evidnece of the crash. Now that he had found it, his next step was to see what he had found

    The most important discovery made by Mr. Kimbler was a silvery metal that resembled aluminum.

    While exploring the area where aliens had allegedly crashed, he discovered more silvery pieces that seemed to have been shredded, and some of the edges of the artifacts even appeared melted.

    After gathering enough physical evidence, Mr. Kimbler turned to the Roswell International UFO Museum and Research Center where he showed his discoveries to the museum director, Julie Shuster, who introduced him to Don Schmitt.

    The first tests were performed by New Mexico Tech in Socorro.

    Scientists used microprobes to determine that the material Kimbler had found was aluminum, silicon, manganese and copper alloy.

    Despite not being ‘unknown,’ or otherworldly, the material isn’t usually found in foil form.

    With more questions than answers, Kimbler decided to obtain an isotopic analysis of the piece.

    He turned to the University of New Mexico Institute of Meteoritics where he spoke with a researcher who was expert in isotopes.

    Kimbler had not told the scientists anything about the piece he had brought.

    As noted by Rojas in his piece for Openminds.tv, the research from the University of New Mexico Institute of Meteoritics told Kimbler that he wanted to test the piece as he suspected the material was from outer space.

    Still without all the answers he needed, Bigelow Aerospace showed interest in helping Kimbler get to the bottom of the mystery. However, after months had gone by without any results, Kimbler decided to go elsewhere and find another lab where his piece could be adequately tested.

    The money needed for the research was obtained by the UFO Museum. Eventually, the results came in, and everyone was left with a big surprise: Kimbler said that “either the lab made an analytical error or the material is not from Earth.”

    Now, seven years into the study of the mysterious pieces, Kimbler says that the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) wants to confiscate the material he had found.

    As explained in another article by Rojas for Openminds.tv, “initial isotopic ratio test done in conjunction with the Roswell International UFO Museum and Research Center was inconclusive but suggested the material may be of unearthly origins. Kimbler has continued research on the material and says he is close to proving the “ET origins of Roswell.”

    And now that Kimbler says he is on the brink of proving how an alien ship did crash in Roswell in 1947, he is terrified that the government may confiscate his evidence.

    “Kimbler was recently contacted by them and asked to bring the materials in on Monday, June 25. This news comes less than two weeks before the annual Roswell UFO festival,” explains ufo author Alejandro Rojas.

    An excerpt of the email sent by Mr. Kimbler to Openminds.tv:

    “The Bureau of Land Management contacted me today and requested that I bring the artifacts that I found down to their office in Roswell. They want their enforcement officer to look at the material and see if I’m in violation of US laws. [Their] own published document clearly says that anything less than 100 years old is not an artifact. It also says of human origin in all US laws. This a prelude to confiscation or fines or both. Seriously, folks, I’m one scientific test away from proving the ET origins of Roswell.”

    Ancient Genetic Engineers: Do Ancient Texts Offer Evidence of Ancient Aliens?

    Many people believe that the miraculous evolutionary leap that led to what the human species is today resembles more a laborious work of genetic engineering than a simple evolutionary process.

    Is surprising that there are numerous ancient texts that speak of the creation of mankind and refer to a time when “beings” created mankind?

    Curiously, according to many authors, the Bible also mentions the same thing.

    It is also extremely surprising that advanced cultures such as the Sumerian flourished in a matter of days without leaving any traces of successive stages of evolution that indicate a progressive cultural, architectural or mathematical breakthrough in their history. It is as if these cultures popped out of nowhere and civilizations just came into existence.

    These are just some of the points that have been completely ignored by mainstream scholars who have studied and analyzed ancient civilizations across the globe.

    Are modern humans the result of Genetic engineering performed by beings not from Earth?

    Are modern humans the result of Genetic engineering performed by beings, not from Earth?

    Also, in a relatively short period of time, the primitive man emerged literally out of nowhere from nothing, creating huge empires, advanced civilizations which achieved the impossible while proving to be way more developed than what history as we know it is willing to admit. This leaves us with a couple of questions that have not been answered by mainstream scholars. Is it possible that there is a missing link in the “evolution process” of primitive man? And is it possible that “external” factors interfered with the development of primitive man and early civilizations on our planet?

    The origin and the actual cause which eventually led to what we know about history today was written down by our ancestors thousands of years ago: where ancient man pointed towards the stars, towards Orion, Sirius, and other constellations, where according to them, Gods came from above, advanced beings that interfered directly and indirectly with the evolution process of human beings.

    When we turn to the book of Genesis, we read how the creation of man occurred:

    25 God made the beasts of the earth after their kind, and the cattle after their kind, and everything that creeps on the ground after its kind; and God saw that it was good. 26 Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” 27 God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them…

    Here, I the above text we cannot help and underline a few very important words that have been omitted by those who have studied ancient texts: “Let Us make man in Our image …

    Who are “They” who created man in “their” image?

    Is it possible that Adam was the result of what many interpret as in vitro fertilization? And what if the genetic designers were the gods Enki his sister Ninhursag and Ningishzidda as some theorists propose?

    Let us turn to the Popol Vuh, the ancient book of the Maya where we find very similar descriptions.

    These beings who created mankind are referred to in the Popol Vuh as “the Creator, the Former, the Dominator, the Feathered-Serpent, they-who-engender, they-who-give-being, and hovered over the water as a dawning light.”

    “Our work and our labor have accomplished its end.” The earth then was covered with various forms of animal life. And the Creator and Former said to the animals: “Speak now our name!” But the animals could not speak as a man. Then said their Makers: “Our glory is not yet perfect since ye cannot invoke us. Dens and food shall ye have, but as to your flesh, it shall be eaten. This is your destiny.”

    Does the ancient text speak of several times “they” tried creating man? It seems as though these beings failed at the beginning, and in the “heaven” they sat and thought it through one more time. Can you literally sit in heaven? Well, probably, if you are in an airplane or other vehicles… right? But here is what the ancient texts say:

    Again there is counsel in heaven. “Let us try again; let us make them who are to be our vehicles and nourishers.” So the Creators determined to make man. Of red earth they molded his flesh; but when they had made him, they saw it was not good. He was without coherence, strengthless, inept, watery; he had been endowed with speech, but he had no intelligence; and straightway he was consumed in the water without being able to stand upright.”

    Again the gods took counsel. It was decided to make man of the wood of the tzite cork-tree, and woman of the marrow of the zibac (willow); but the result was in no wise satisfactory — they were merely wooden manikins. And these are the people who inhabit the surface of the earth. They existed and multiplied, but had neither heart nor intelligence, nor memory of their Creators. They led a useless life and lived like the animals.

    They had neither father nor mother, neither were they made by the ordinary agents in the work of creation, but their coming into existence was a miracle extraordinary, wrought by the special intervention of the Creator. “Verily, at last, did the gods look on beings who were worthy of their origin.”

    Exoplanet Biosignatures: Will We Be Able to Recognize Extraterrestrial Life If We See It?

    A team of leading astronomers, biologists and geologists have come together under the Nexus for Exoplanet System Science (NExSS), a NASA research coordination network dedicated to the study of planetary habitability, to make an inventory of the most promising signs of life, called biosignatures.

    NExSS considered how to interpret the presence of biosignatures, should we detect them on extrasolar planets.

    “We’re moving from theorizing about life elsewhere in our Milky Way Galaxy to a robust science that will eventually give us the answer we seek to that profound question: Are we alone?” said Dr. Martin Still, an exoplanet scientist at NASA Headquarters.

    The assessment comes as a new generation of space and ground-based telescopes are in development.

    The NASA/ESA/CSA James Webb Space Telescope will characterize the atmospheres of some of the first small, rocky planets.

    Other observatories — such as the Giant Magellan Telescope and the Extremely Large Telescope — are planning to carry sophisticated instruments capable of detecting the first exoplanet biosignatures.

    Through their work, NExSS scientists aim to identify the instruments needed to detect potential life for future NASA missions.

    The detection of atmospheric signatures of a few potentially habitable planets may possibly come before 2030, although whether the planets are truly habitable or have life will require more in-depth study.

    Since humans won’t be able to visit distant planets and collect samples anytime soon, the light that a telescope observes will be all we have in the search for extraterrestrial life.

    Telescopes can examine the light reflecting off a distant world to show us the kinds of gases in the atmosphere and their ‘seasonal’ variations, as well as colors like green that could indicate life.

    These kinds of biosignatures can all be seen on our fertile Earth from space, but the new worlds we examine will differ significantly.

    For example, many of the promising planets astronomers have found are around cooler stars, which emit infrared light, rather than our Sun’s high emissions of visible-light.

    “What does a living planet look like? We have to be open to the possibility that life may arise in many contexts in a galaxy with so many diverse worlds — perhaps with purple-colored life instead of the familiar green-dominated life forms on Earth, for example. That’s why we are considering a broad range of biosignatures,” explained Dr. Mary Parenteau, an astrobiologist and microbiologist at NASA’s Ames Research Center.

    The NExSS scientists assert that oxygen — the gas produced by photosynthetic organisms on Earth — remains the most promising biosignature of life elsewhere, but it is not foolproof. Abiotic processes on a planet could also generate oxygen.

    Conversely, a planet lacking detectable levels of oxygen could still be alive — which was exactly the case of Earth before the global accumulation of oxygen in the atmosphere.

    “On early Earth, we wouldn’t be able to see oxygen, despite abundant life,” said Dr. Victoria Meadows, an astronomer at the University of Washington in Seattle.

    “Oxygen teaches us that seeing, or not seeing, a single biosignature is insufficient evidence for or against life — overall context matters.”

    Rather than measuring a single characteristic, the researchers argue that we should be looking at a suite of traits.

    A planet must show itself capable of supporting life through its features, and those of its parent star.

    The NExSS team will create a framework that can quantify how likely it is that a planet has life, based on all the available evidence.

    With the observation of many planets, astronomers may begin to more broadly classify the ‘living worlds’ that show common characteristics of life, versus the ‘non-living worlds.’

    “We won’t have a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ answer to finding life elsewhere. What we will have is a high level of confidence that a planet appears alive for reasons that can only be explained by the presence of life,” said Dr. Shawn Domagal-Goldman, an astrobiologist at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center.

    The NExSS researchers reported their results and analysis in the June 2018 issue of the journal Astrobiology.

    Looking for life in all the hard places – a guidebook

    An illustration of a number of the different kinds of planets found by Kepler all lined up in a row.

    types of planets Kepler found/NAA

    Okay, They’re not Out There. But maybe something is. Any form of extraterrestrial life could shed light on at least some questions.

    In that spirit, we learn from ScienceDaily of a newly published guidebook, in th form of a seriesof papers based on finds here on Earth:

    Some of the leading experts in the field, including a UC Riverside team of researchers, have written a major series of review papers on the past, present, and future of the search for life on other planets. Published in Astrobiology, the papers represent two years of work by the Nexus for Exoplanet Systems Science (NExSS), a NASA-coordinated research network dedicated to the study of planetary habitability, and by NASA’s Astrobiology Institute.

    Scientists have identified more than 3,500 planets around other stars (called exoplanets) and many more will be discovered in the coming decades. Some of these are rocky, Earth-sized planets that are in the habitable zones of their stars, meaning it’s neither too hot nor too cold for liquid water — and possibly life — to exist.

    The five papers will serve as a reference for scientists searching for signs of life, called biosignatures, in the data they collect from future telescope observations.

    “We are using Earth to guide our search for life on other planets because it is the only known example we have,” said Timothy Lyons, a distinguished professor of biogeochemistry and director of the Alternative Earths Astrobiology Center. “But Earth actually offers us a great diversity of possibilities. Rather than being constrained to a study of present-day life, we use geological and geochemical analyses to examine the billions of years that life survived, evolved, and thrived on Earth under conditions that are very different than today’s, hence the concept of ‘alternative Earths.'”

    Schwieterman’s review outlines the complexities of searching for life on planets that are too far away to visit, including phenomena called false positives and false negatives. “The search for life using biosignatures is not as simple as looking for a single molecule or compound. Atmospheric oxygen, for example, could be a sign of life, but there are many nonbiological ways that oxygen gas could be produced on an exoplanet. Conversely, it is possible that life could exist in the absence of oxygen gas, similar to early life on Earth or portions of the oceans today,” Schwieterman said. “This is one reason temporal biosignatures, which are based on dynamic phenomena such as atmospheric seasonality, might be more robust biosignatures in some circumstances.”Paper. (public access) – Edward W. Schwieterman, Nancy Y. Kiang, Mary N. Parenteau, Chester E. Harman, Shiladitya DasSarma, Theresa M. Fisher, Giada N. Arney, Hilairy E. Hartnett, Christopher T. Reinhard, Stephanie L.

    If this gets really interesting, maybe the appropriate answer to “Are They Out There?” is “Tell them we’ll call back as soon as possible.”

    Cet OVNI a atterri près de Moscou en 1995 (vidéo)

    En 1995, un incroyable événement véridique s’est produit dans l’Ouest de la Russie. Cette affaire, qui implique un OVNI, a soigneusement été dissimulée depuis. En effet, après la diffusion de la vidéo en octobre de la même année, celle-ci a soudainement disparu.

    Aujourd’hui, il ne reste plus que trois images de ce prétendu atterrissage d’OVNI. Certains ufologues prétendent que les rares témoins ont probablement été manipulés afin qu’ils gardent le silence sur ce qui s’est passé.

    Les images ont été diffusées par la télévision russe en octobre 1995 et montrent l’atterrissage d’un énorme engin spatial extraterrestre qui a eu lieu dans la banlieue d’Ostankino, à proximité de Moscou.

    Dans les 3 séquences de photos, qui faisaient à l’origine partie d’une vidéo, vous pouvez voir 2 personnes, appartenant vraisemblablement à l’armée russe, qui observent de près l’atterrissage de l’engin extraterrestre.

    Après de longues enquêtes, des ufologues, à la fois russes et européens, sont arrivés à la conclusion que la soucoupe volante avait atterri juste pour éviter les tirs de l’artillerie anti-aérienne russe.

    Plus tard, de cet OVNI aurait émergé des êtres humanoïdes qui semblaient émettre leur propre lumière. Ils avaient des intentions « non-hostiles ». Mais leurs comportements a été mal interprétés par le personnel militaire soviétique, qui à son tour a répondu en tirant quelques coups de mitrailleuses.

    En réponse à l’attaque soviétique, la coque de l’engin extraterrestre aurait émis des impulsions d’énergie qui auraient mis hors d’usage les armes de l’armée russe.

    A partir de l’analyse effectuée sur la séquence d’images, le chercheur Carlo Clemente a indiqué que l’OVNI paraissait être enveloppé par un champ d’énergie. Il a estimé qu’il avait un diamètre d’environ 15-20 mètres.

    Carlos Clemente a comparé les images prises à Ostankino avec l’affaire de Cotula (au Texas), où dans la nuit du 5 Juillet 2012, une caméra de surveillance d’un condominium privé situé dans la région d’Eagle Ford, avait enregistré l’atterrissage d’un autre OVNI.

    UFO Festival 2018 in Roswell: When is the world’s biggest alien convention?

    UFO Festival 2018 in Roswell, the world’s largest gathering of alien truthers and UFO hunters, kicks off next month. Here is everything you need to know.

    The popular  and alien convention will take over the city of Roswell, New Mexico, between July 6 and July 8.

    Tens of thousands of paranormal enthusiast are expected to arrive at the convention hosted at the most notorious UFO sighting city in the world.

    Last year, more than 38,000 people from 43 states and 16 different counties paid a visit to the massive get-together.

    The annual UFO festival will feature stalls, parades and even a petting zoo all set up on streets of Roswell.

    The event organisers said: “The City of Roswell invites UFO enthusiasts and sceptics alike to join in the celebration of one of the most debated incidents in history.

    “If it isn't on your bucket list it should be, and once you attend you may find, like many of the festival visitors, it becomes one our your annual vacation plans.”

    Roswell has become popular for UFO hunters after ab alleged crash-landing of an extraterrestrial flying saucer on a ranch 30 miles north of Roswell sometime in early July 1947.

    The Roswell Army Air Field (RAAF) officially claimed the downed object was a weather balloon but the incident sparked the imaginations of UFO truthers for generations to come.

    UFO Festival 2018

    From July 6 to July 8 this year, the UFO Festival 2018 will host a series of expert panels and speeches from some of the most prolific voices in the UFO truther community.

    The organisers said the featured entertainment covers everything from music, food and family activities to alien autopsies and “so much more”.

    Kathy Lay, Executive Director for MainStreet Roswell, said: “You have people all over the city. There will be some out at the mall at Galactic Con. 

    “Some will be at the UFO museum doing the seminars and workshops.

    This year the event will even feature a variety of cute animals at the Runyan Ranches Petting Zoo, ready to be played with and fed all day long.

    Early birds who pop into to the Chaves County Courthouse on the day of the festival will be treated to their very own Roswell UFO Passport. 

    A number of alien goody bags have also been prepared in advance for lucky revellers.

    James Abbott – The Outsider’s Guide to UFOs: Mystery and Science – June 26, 2018

    Open Minds UFO Radio: James Abbott is the author of the Outsider’s Guide to UFOs. Following a short scholarship to Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut, James completed a Bachelor’s degree in Politics and Economics at the University of York and later researched a Master’s thesis at the University of Cambridge on global trade in the aerospace industry. His career has encompassed time in the aerospace sector, in marketing, in education, and in commercial research. He’s written and contributed to around a dozen academic books, and countless lengthy reports. His greatest professional love is research; having the view that there aren’t that many jobs in which you get paid for having fun, but that’s what research is like.

    So why UFOs of all things? The answer is a long one, but it boils down to this: Like almost everyone else, James gets hooked by a good mystery, and UFOs are perhaps the greatest mystery of all; one which is in desperate need of being properly investigated. He lives with his wife in Yorkshire, England, where rabbits are the only alien menace. Or so he believes! UFOs may or may not be of this Earth and time, but the huge job of trying to nail them down is incredibly fascinating.

    Een foto van de Ryugu-asteroïde die werd genomen op 24 juni 2018.
     Na een reis van drieëneenhalf jaar heeft de Japanse ruimtesonde Hayabusa 2 deze week haar bestemming bereikt: de diamantvormige planetoïde Ryugu. Tijdens de achttien maanden durende missie zal het toestel het oppervlak van Ryugu verkennen en bodemstalen nemen. Die moeten tegen 2020 weer de aarde bereiken.

    Het Japanse ruimteagentschap JAXA publiceerde vorige week al korrelige foto’s die werden genomen vanaf een afstand van 300 kilometer waaruit blijkt dat Ryugu de vorm heeft van een tol. Recentere foto’s die werden genomen vanaf zo’n 30 kilometer hoog tonen dat het oppervlak bezaaid ligt met grote keien.

    Sinds vandaag bevindt het ruimtetuig zich in een baan rond de planetoïde. De afstand tussen Hayabusa 2 en Ryugu bedraagt momenteel zo’n 20 kilometer, aldus JAXA in een mededeling.

    Bodemstudie

    De sonde zal gedurende anderhalf jaar de 900 meter brede planetoïde, die zich op ongeveer 290 miljoen kilometer van de aarde bevindt, bestuderen. Tijdens die periode zal ze meerdere kleinere sondes naar het oppervlak van Ryugu sturen, waaronder drie kleine rovers die de asteroïde moeten gaan verkennen.

    “Aanvankelijk zullen we het oppervlak erg grondig bestuderen. Vervolgens zullen we beslissen waar we gaan landen”, aldus Makoto Yoshikawa, die de missie van Hayabusa 2 leidt. Daartoe zal een koperen projectiel, de “impactor”, zich losmaken van de sonde en zich naar de vaste grond begeven. “We hebben een impactor die een kleine krater zal maken op het oppervlak van Ryugu. Mogelijk in het voorjaar van volgend jaar zullen we proberen een krater te maken... Vervolgens zal onze ruimtesonde de krater proberen te bereiken om materiaal onder de oppervlakte te verzamelen, maar dit is een erg grote uitdaging”, aldus Yoshikawa.

    Planetoïde klasse C

    Planetoïden zijn in essentie de bouwmaterialen die overbleven na de vorming van ons zonnestelsel, zo’n 4,6 miljard jaar geleden.

    Ryugu is een planetoïde van klasse C. “We weten niet veel over C-klasse-planetoïden”, zegt NASA-wetenschapper Lucy McFadden, die erg verheugd is over de expeditie. “Ze hebben vermoedelijk een samenstelling die vergelijkbaar is met die van het vroege zonnestelsel.” De missie van Hayabusa 2, de enige ruimtesonde die ooit zo dicht bij een planetoïde van dit type kwam, moet uitmaken of het oppervlak van Ryugu voornamelijk uit koolstof bestaat, zoals vaak wordt aangenomen, of uit kleine metalen deeltjes, zoals magnetiet.

    De ingezamelde data moet wetenschappers helpen begrijpen hoe de planeten die rond onze zon cirkelen tot stand kwamen, hoe de oceanen op aarde ontstonden en wat de aanleiding vormde voor het leven op aarde. Veel wetenschappers denken immers dat de oceanen op onze planeet het gevolg zijn van een bombardement door waterrijke asteroïden of kometen.

    Eind 2019 zal Hayabusa 2 naar de aarde terugkeren, een reis die ongeveer een jaar in beslag zal nemen.

    Kopie van eerste Hayabusa

    De Hayabusa 2 is een bijna exacte kopie van de eerste Hayabusa die in 2003 gelanceerd werd en de asteroïde Itokawa bereikte in 2005. Na een reeks tegenslagen, keerde de sonde in 2010 terug naar de aarde met een kleine hoeveelheid materiaal van de asteroïde. Momenteel is Osiris-Rex, een Amerikaanse sonde, op weg naar de planetoïde 101955 Bennu om er stalen te verzamelen. In augustus zou de sonde haar bestemming moeten bereiken.

    Het gloednieuwe conceptvliegtuig van Boeing
     Vliegtuigbouwer Boeing heeft deze week een hypersonisch passagiersvliegtuig gepresenteerd op de American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics Conference in Atlanta. Het gaat voorlopig nog om een concept, maar Boeing hoopt een dergelijk vliegtuig over twintig à dertig jaar te kunnen bouwen.

    Ingenieurs van Boeing werken aan verschillende concepten die de ontwikkeling van een hypersonisch toestel mogelijk maakt zodra klanten daar behoefte aan hebben, zo meldt Boeing zelf. Het concept voor een passagiersvliegtuig kan volgens Boeing op zowel commercieel als militair gebied toegepast worden.

    De Concorde, het voorlopig snelste passagiersvliegtuig ooit, haalde een topsnelheid van 2.179 kilometer per uur, dat is zo’n twee keer de snelheid van het geluid. Maar het concept van Boeing zou tot wel vijf keer de snelheid van het geluid halen, meer dan 6.000 kilometer per uur. Met die snelheid vlieg je in een uurtje van Londen naar New York.

    Spielberg, Close Encounters, and Conspiracy Theories

    Since its original cinematic release in 1977, Steven Spielberg’s sci-fi masterpiece Close Encounters of the Third Kind has been the subject of fervent speculation in the UFO conspiracy community. Many UFO buffs are convinced that the movie was produced as part of an official acclimation program in anticipation of an alien “disclosure” event. This speculation can be traced back to the production of the movie itself. On 23 July 1976, after a hard day’s shoot, around forty of the cast and crew, including stars Richard Dreyfuss and Melinda Dillon, gathered in the sticky night air of Mobile, Alabama, to hear a lecture delivered by the movie’s appointed advisor on UFOs, Professor J. Allen Hynek (the famed astronomer had been flown in for a brief cameo in the closing scenes). Shortly after Hynek’s lecture, actor Bob Balaban (who plays the character of translator David Laughlin), began to discuss with his colleagues an intriguing rumour that had been circulating during the production—“a rumour,” wrote Balaban in his production diary, “that the film is part of the necessary training that the human race must go through in order to accept an actual landing, and is being secretly sponsored by a government UFO agency.”

    In 2014, I had the opportunity to interview Close Encountersproduction designer, Joe Alves. I asked him if ever he had heard any such rumours during the shoot, and if there was any substance to them. “There were a lot of rumours,” he told me, ambiguously, before changing the subject.

    Back in 1977, even Spielberg himself seemed to be dropping hints: “I wouldn’t put it past this government that a cosmic Watergate has been underway for the last 25 years,” the director remarked during a Close Encounters promotional interview, “eventually they might want to tell us something about what they’ve discovered over the decades.” During the same interview, the director spoke with relish of “rumours” that President Carter was due to make “some unsettling disclosures” about UFOs later that year. Needless to say, no such disclosures were forthcoming.

    Particularly curious is that the Carter Presidential Library contains no record of the film-loving President ever having viewed Close Encounters while in office. However, in a 1977 Canadian TV interview conducted directly after the movie’s theatrical release, Spielberg said matter-of-factly that Carter had viewed the movie “Last Saturday.” Spielberg remarked, “We haven’t heard the direct feedback,” but added, “We hear he [Carter] liked it quite a bit.”  The following March, The Phoenix Gazette cited Close Encounters as “Jimmy Carter’s favorite movie,” noting that “The President has seen the movie many times.” This is not the only discrepancy over the official record concerning Carter and Spielberg. Officially, Spielberg never set foot in the Carter White House and had never met the President, and yet a solitary photocopy of a photograph discovered in the Carter Presidential Library proves that the two men did meet. The photo shows Carter and Spielberg engaged in conversation and is signed: “To Steven Spielberg, [from] Jimmy Carter.” An accompanying White House stationary note signed by White House Social Secretary Gretchen Poston and addressed to Spielberg reads: “The President thought you would enjoy receiving the enclosed photograph.”

    This apparent secrecy almost certainly resulted from a desire among Carter’s staff to keep the Administration from being further publicly associated with flying saucers. Famously, Carter had his own UFO sighting in 1969 in Leary, Georgia, witnessing a bright white round object that approached his position before stopping and then receding into the distance. Carter was with twelve other people at the time, all of whom witnessed the strange phenomenon.  Needless to say, a UFO-spotting President viewing the ultimate UFO movie at the White House and having get-togethers with its alien-obsessed director would have been a PR nightmare.

    By far the most outlandish of the conspiracy theories surrounding Close Encounters relates to Project Serpo—an alleged human/alien exchange program between US military personnel and a race of extraterrestrials from the Zeta Reticuli star system. The story goes that, in July of 1965, twelve astronauts were taken to the planet Serpo aboard an alien spaceship and remained there for thirteen years. In exchange, the aliens left one of their own in the custody of the US government. This story didn’t emerge until 2005 in the form of a string of anonymous emails that were sent to selected UFO researchers, including Project Camelot/Avalon’s Bill Ryan, who created a website dedicated to the “leaks.”

    The Serpo story lead some in the conspiracy community to speculate that Close Encounters was partly inspired by the alleged alien-human exchange program of 1965, which assumes that Spielberg himself was privy to inside information on the UFO issue. In the movie’s final scenes, a taller alien (designed by effects expert Carlo Rambaldi) is seen to exit the mothership and communicate with the character of Claude Lacombe via a series of hand gestures. Immediately before this we see twelve scientists clad in jumpsuits preparing to board the mothership and take permanent leave of planet Earth. Roy Neary joins the group as its thirteenth member.

    It is important to note that the Serpo story, which has not a shred of evidence to support it, did not emerge until 2005, twenty-eight years after the release of Close Encounters. It’s probably safe to assume then that former inspired the latter, rather than vice versa.

    Whether or not there is any truth to the conspiracy theories surrounding Close Encounters, Spielberg’s movie remains hugely significant for the fact that it played a central role in Hollywood’s mid-to-late-1970s economic revival—its $338 million worldwide box-office gross forced crusty studio executives to recognize America’s vast and largely neglected youth market and to adapt their output accordingly. Two other alien-themed movies of the period would also play a key role in this industrial paradigm shift: Star Wars (1977) and Superman(1978). Together, these three films about the wonders of the universe acted as adrenalin, shot straight into the heart of a dying industry (though many critics would argue, perhaps justifiably, that this adrenalin acted as poison in the long-term, stifling creativity and individuality in Hollywood). Spielberg’s film also reignited public curiosity about UFOs as an enduring enigma, and its release closely coincided with the thirtieth anniversary of the Roswell Incident. Just one year later, Jesse Marcel would spill the beans on his first-hand experiences of that event, opening the floodgates for hundreds more closely-corresponding Roswell testimonies.

    With Vietnam and Watergate still fresh in the mind, Close Encounters came as a reassuring hug for America towards the end of a decade of disillusionment, and Spielberg’s movie would redefine Hollywood’s working relationship with aliens for much of the 1980s, resulting in movies such as E.T.: The ExtraterrestrialStarmanBatteries Not Included, and The Abyss, to name but a few. Thanks to Close Encounters, what for so many decades had come only to conquer, could now come in peace.

    Supervising Robots with Brain and Muscle Signals

    MIT Creates Telepathic Robot Servant Controlled by Passive Aggression

    While many have argued that the biggest problem facing humanity is our growing inability to communicate, MIT seems to think that our first interactions with household robots should be predicated on passive aggression and silent judgement. Robotics scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have created a “robot servant” named Baxter that can read its owners brain waves and tell when they’re displeased with the job its doing and correct its behavior accordingly. Conveniently, you don’t even need to talk to this poor machine, as it can be controlled by simple hand gestures.

    Baxter can sense your simmering rage through electrodes placed on the scalp, and can sense very subtle gestures through more electrodes on your forearm. MIT says that they want to remove the machine constraints on human-robot interfacing and that their goal is to “to develop robotic systems that are a more natural and intuitive extension of us.”

    Robot

    “Why do you resent me?”

    In the latest demonstration, MIT demonstrated Baxter’s ability to use a drill on three possible targets. The operator sits behind the robot wearing the electrode skull-cap and arm band. Baxter, outfitted with what looks like an iPad displaying a smiley face for extra creep factor, autonomously goes to stick the drill into one of the targets. Sensing the operator’s displeasure, Baxter asks for assistance. With a quick flick of the wrist, the operator shows Baxter how to do a better job. One question remains though: what happens when Baxter turns on the operator and puts that drill right through their impossibly high demands?

    MIT clearly doesn’t think this is a problem, as one of the main points of this demonstration was to show that Baxter can be used by anyone immediately. There’s no need to train Baxter to read a person’s specific brainwaves, so once the technology is commercially viable, Baxter can be bossed around on a whim simply by putting on the cap and arm band.

    EEG cap

    There are some trade-offs for your power fantasies though: you’ll have to wear this.

    There is a good hopeful use for this robot. Because Baxter is so easily controlled, MIT says that the robot will be useful for assisting the elderly, those with physical disabilities, or even people struggling behind a language barrier. That’s definitely the right use for robots. Anything that allows people robbed of agency by circumstance get control over their lives back is objectively a good thing, and if that’s the path we’re going down then bravo, MIT.

    But don’t think we’re ending this on a high note. Here’s what PhD candidate Joseph DelPreto and lead author of the latest paper on Baxter says about the technology:

    “By looking at both muscle and brain signals, we can start to pick up on a person’s natural gestures along with their snap decisions about whether something is going wrong.

    This helps make communicating with a robot more like communicating with another person.”

    Yes, just like communicating with a human: unexpressed resentment and patronizing hand gestures. What better way to usher in the horrifying future we’re eagerly wading into than to make the first “robot servant”—insert your own synonym for “robot servant” there—feed into our secret narcissistic want to have things change based on our split-second emotional reactions without that irksome and apparently passé step of verbalizing how we feel in a half-way cogent manner.

    UFO caught LIVE on camera during Newscast in Buffalo

    An unidentified flying object or UFO raced across the sky over Buffalo, NY and was caught on camera during the evening weather cast.


    Meteorologist Andy Parker was showing the night sky on SkyWatch7 late in the evening at around 11:20pm on Thursday June 14 when an object entered and exited the camera view.

    The object travels from west to east and makes what appears to be a hook turn to the north and gains altitude before exiting near the top of the camera frame.

    Andy Parker noticed the appearance of the object and offered up the idea it might have been a shooting star while asking the rest of the crew if anyone else had seen the object.

    The object moves too fast to be a plane, originates too far away to be a bug, perhaps a meteorite?

    However, the unknown flying object makes a curve something that a meteorite does not do.

    The Roswell incident: how ‘UFO sighting’ sparked 70 years of conspiracy theories

    A US government ‘cover-up’, the declassification of top secret files and big-budget alien movies have fuelled interest in UFOs

    On 8 July 1947 the Roswell Daily Record newspaper published a front page article with the headline “RAAF Captures Flying Saucer On Ranch in Roswell Region”, and the legend of America's most famous brush with aliens was born.

    Today, many conspiracy theorists consider the so-called “Roswell incident” to be one of the most conspicuous pieces of evidence that the US government has covered up the existence of extraterrestrial life on Earth.

    Next month thousands of people from all over the world will travel to the town, the de facto UFO capital of the world, but the Roswell story's position in the public imagination was far from immediate.

    What was the Roswell incident?

    On 7 July 1947, around 75 miles north of the town of Roswell in New Mexico, debris from a highly classified project used by the US Army Air Force (the precursor to the US Air Force) to detect atomic bomb tests in the Soviet Union, was recovered from a ranch after being reported by ranch worker William Brazel.

    Intrigued by the idea of flying saucers, Brazel gathered some of the debris and went to Roswell where he told Sheriff George Wilcox about his find. According to reports he “whispered kinda confidential like”. Wilcox immediately reported the encounter to the USAAF base at Roswell which promptly sent agents to visit the ranch, but not before the press picked up the story.

    What was reported at the time?

    On 8 July 1947 Roswell Army Air Field (RAAF) issued a press release stating that a “flying disk” had crashed on a ranch near Roswell during a powerful storm. Later in the day, as government scientists arrived in the area, the story appeared to change. A press conference was held and it was stated instead that a weather balloon had crashed. Reporters were shown debris said to be taken from the crash area, such as foil, rubber and wood, which appeared to confirm that the object had been a weather balloon.

    After initially suggesting that Brazel's debris had come from a UFO, the Roswell Daily Record reported a correction which included the USAAF statement that it was a weather balloon that had been found at the site. Brazel later went on record to say that he regretted the publicity that his misidentification had caused.

    According to the official accounts, the debris Brazel found came from a balloon which was part of an experimental technology trial codenamed Project Mogul.

    What was Project Mogul?

    The classified Project Mogul was designed to detect sound waves in the upper atmosphere from Soviet atom bomb tests by flying microphones on trains of balloons at high altitude. Although the technology was quickly superseded, it remained secret for more than 20 years after the event. The fact that the balloon was involved in Cold War surveillance of the Soviet Union may have helped to propel rumours of a cover-up.

    How did it become a cause celebre?

    For 31 years the story was largely forgotten until The National Enquirer reported the original Roswell Daily Record story again, but not the correction. Following the publication of the new story, theories suggesting that the government's incomplete account had been an attempt to cover-up the discovery of an alien spacecraft began to take root.

    What did other witnesses say?

    Several people claimed to have seen debris scattered over a wide area and at least one person reported seeing a blazing aircraft in the sky shortly before it crashed, but the key account came from a former mortician, Glenn Dennis, who claimed in 1989 that a friend who worked as a nurse at the Roswell Army Air Field had accidentally walked into an examination room where doctors were bent over the bodies of three creatures. They apparently resembled humans, but with small bodies, spindly arms and giant bald heads.

    In 1995, Ray Santilli, a London-based entrepreneur, released “footage” of an alien autopsy performed in Roswell in 1947. Experts immediately ridiculed the footage as a hoax and he admitted years later that it was almost entirely fake. Nevertheless, Santilli insisted real footage existed, but due to its poor condition he had been forced to recreate it.

    Critics have questioned the validity of various witnesses and pointed out that many claims over the years have come from “friends of friends” who supposedly saw something out of the ordinary.

    Stranger than fiction?

    Coincidentally, the republication of the story came just one year after the release of Close Encounters of the Third Kind, a film about a government conspiracy covering up alien visits to Earth. The film was released in the USA in November and the following year in the UK. That year 750 sightings were officially documented in the UK by the Ministry of Defence UFO desk, the highest figure on record.

    Did UFO sightings continue to increase?

    Looking at UFO sightings data from both sides of the Atlantic, a direct correlation between popular films involving aliens and real world UFO sightings becomes evident. In 2009, The Guardian detailed the popular culture influences that may have helped propel UFO sightings in the UK in 1996. In the year that Independence Day and Mars Attacks were released there were 609 UFO sightings across the UK, significantly more than the years just before or after.

    The MoD assembled detailed records of UK UFO sightings between 1959 and 1973 before cuts ended the program

    Unofficial data, supplied by the National UFO Reporting Centre in America suggest that UFO sightings have been slowly increasing in the US since the 1970s, growing increasingly rapidly since the early 1990s.

    One possible explanation for this is that the reporting centre became both better known and easier to contact with the advent of new technologies such as fax machines and the internet.

    In 2014, The Economist analysed the available data from 2000 to 2014 and found that most UFOs were reported when people were drunk.

    Did declassifying Project Mogul help?

    Even though Project Mogul was declassified in the 1970s, it wasn't fully connected to Roswell until 1994 when the normally secretive National Security Agencyfinally published an in-depth report refuting all claims of a conspiracy at the site. A second report, released in 1997, concluded that reports of alien bodies actually related to life-sized anthropomorphic test dummies.

    But by providing detailed analysis of the Roswell incident, many analysts believe that the US government inadvertently fuelled interest in conspiracy theories and public suspicions that the US military was involved in a cover-up.

    Roswell: the UFO capital of the world

    Because of the huge notoriety surrounding the Roswell incident, the town has become Ground Zero for UFO conspiracists.

    Each year on the anniversary of the story, thousands of enthusiasts embrace all things alien and paranormal at a UFO Festival. There, they can dissect mock alien bodies and take part in scientific experiments.

    Last year, to mark 70 years since the incident was first reported, around 38,000 people turned up from all over the world.

    Kathy Lay, executive director for MainStreet Roswell, says:

    “You have people all over the city. There will be some out at the mall at Galactic Con. Some will be at the UFO museum doing the seminars and workshops. You'll have some that will be going to the plays that are going on, some will be over at the planetarium, some will be here at this festival. They're all over - we just embrace it.”

    U.S. Navy Had a UFO Encounter According to Leaked Military Report

    The reported UFO disturbance was said to descend rapidly from approximately 60,000 feet down to approximately 50 feet in seconds.

    A recently leaked alleged military report details an incredible encounter between the USS Nimitz Carrier Strike Group (CSG) and an unidentified aircraft. U.S. Navy F-18 jet fighter pilots described the object as looking like a giant, white Tic Tac, and say it moved to evade them by shooting off at “supersonic” speeds. The USS Nimitz CSG encountered the objects over several days in 2004 off the coast of California. The most shocking parts of the report speculate that the UFO could have had the ability to “‘cloak’ or become invisible to the human eye” and “possibly… operate undersea completely undetectable by our most advanced sensors.”

    Den of Geek contacted several individuals close to the case to confirm the document’s legitimacy.

    Last December, The New York Times posted an article revealing a Pentagon project called the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP) that was secretly investigating credible UFO cases. The world was tipped off to the existence of the project by the man who was recently in charge of the project, Luis Elizondo. Elizondo retired in Oct. 2017 because the government did not take the UFO situation seriously enough. He says there are “many accounts from the Navy and other services of unusual aerial systems interfering with military weapon platforms and displaying beyond-next-generation capabilities,” and that “there remains a vital need to ascertain capability and intent of these phenomena for the benefit of the armed forces and the nation.”

    The New York Times article included two videos allegedly representing cases of UFOs caught on video by military aircraft. Little information about the videos is available. However, the other was said to be from an encounter between an unknown object and the USS Nimitz CSG off of the coast of San Diego in 2004.

    Soon after the New York Times article was released, there was a worldwide storm of press on the secretive UFO program. Elizondo and Commander David Fravor, one of the U.S. Navy jet fighter pilots who encountered the unidentified object, participated in several interviews. However, no official documents were released.

    On May 18, 2018, Las Vegas KLAS Channel 8’s I-Team posted an articleabout a leaked report they had obtained. The I-Team claims the report was “prepared by and for the military.” They obtained the report during “a whirlwind trip to Washington for a debriefing arranged by former Senator Harry Reid.” Reid had been instrumental in securing funding for the creation of AATIP.

    According to the I-Team, the leaked report was put together in 2009 “with input from multiple agencies.” The report begins with an executive summary, makes several key assessments, describes the technology involved in the incident, and then describes the accounts of the personnel involved.

    The executive summary reveals encounters with what they call Anomalous Aerial Vehicles (AAVs) occurred over several days, from Nov. 10 to 16, 2004 off the west coast, just before the USS Nimitz CSG left for the Arabian Sea. According to the report, “The USS Princeton on several occasions detected multiple Anomalous Aerial Vehicles (AAVs) operating in and around the vicinity of the CSG.”

    “The AAVs would descend ‘very rapidly’ from approximately 60,000 feet down to approximately 50 feet in a matter of seconds,” the report continues. “They would hover or stay stationary on the radar for a short time and depart at high velocities and turn rates.”

    According to the report, on Nov. 14, 2004, they got a closer look at one of these AAVs. It was a bright day with “blue skies, no clouds, and unlimited visibility.” After completing their training mission, two F-18s, call signs FASTEAGLE 01 and 02, were directed by the USS Princeton, a guided missile cruiser in the USS Nimitz CSG, to an unknown target. The USS Princeton also asked what weapons they had onboard, which was unusual. 

    One of the pilots, U.S. Navy Commander David ‘Sex’ Fravor in FASTEAGLE01, says the first thing he noticed at the location of the AAV was a “disturbance of water” in the sea. He scanned the area and noticed the AAV was just above the disturbance, which he said: “looked like frothy waves and foam almost as if the water was boiling.”

    A U.S. Marine Lieutenant Colonel piloting an F-18 was also sent in to take a look. He was asked to stay above 10,000 feet as other planes were coming in lower. He also spotted the disturbance in the water.

    “The disturbance appeared to be 50 to 100 meters in diameter and close to round,” according to the report. “It was the only area and type of whitewater activity that could be seen and reminded him of images of something rapidly submerging from the surface like a submarine or ship sinking. It also looked like a possible area of shoal water where the swell was breaking over a barely submerged reef or island.”

    EXCLUSIVE REPORT: Can Humans Survive in Space Long Term?

    At around the same time, FASTEAGLE01 descended to about 12,000 to 16,000 feet to get a closer look. FASTEAGLE02 stayed back and maintained an altitude of approximately 20,000 feet. Fravor said the object hovered in place. He described the object as looking “like an elongated egg or a ‘Tic Tac’ and had a discernible midline horizontal axis. However, the object was uniformly white across the entire body. It was approximately 46 feet in length.”

    The name of the pilot in FASTEAGLE02 was redacted from the report, but he had a similar description. He said the AAV was “solid white, smooth, with no edges. It was uniformly colored with no nacelles, pylons, or wings.” He said it did not glow or reflect sunlight, and “it looked like it had a white candy-coated shell, almost like a whiteboard.” His report did differ slightly from Fravor in that he says the object did appear to be moving.

    Fravor decided to make a close pass of the object to try and identify it. He says as he approached, the AAV seemed to “recognize us.” He said the object realigned itself and “pointed” in his direction. The disturbance on the water also stopped. As Fravor continued his approach, the object suddenly shot up at “a supersonic speed.”

    Fravor asked if the USS Princeton still had the AAV on the radar, and at first was told “no.” Soon after, the USS Princeton told Fravor, “you’re not going to believe this, it's at your CAP.” The CAP was the area Fravor had been training in earlier in the day. The USS Princeton added, the AAV “had climbed to approximately 24,000 feet.” They tried to locate the object, but it and the disturbance in the ocean were gone.

    Although the AAV was not seen by Fravor again, this was not the last of the anomalous activity for the day. During training exercises, the USS Nimitz CSG acquired a weak radar target. The pilot of the F-18 attempting to track the object said, it “just appeared the radar couldn’t hack it.” However, he was able to spot the object using his Forward Looking Infrared (FLIR) camera. The pilot was at 20,000 feet traveling at 300 knots, and estimated the object was at about the same altitude or a “few thousand feet below.”

    The object appeared to be stationary on the FLIR camera, then moved out of the camera’s field of view and contact with the object was lost. A portion of this video was released in the New York Times article, although the pilot said he was not sure if it was the same object Fravor saw earlier in the day. He also said he only caught it on camera and never saw it with his own eyes. After he lost contact with the object, the pilot returned to his training mission.

    The USS Nimitz CSG included the USS Louisville Los Angeles-class fast attack submarine. Researchers asked a USS Louisville officer if their sonar caught any of the disturbance reported. The officer replied they had received “no unidentified sonar contacts in the vicinity of the aerial sightings or at any time during operations off the coast of California.”

    Thus the report concluded, “Based on the lack of detection of any unidentified sonar contacts it is highly unlikely that an AAV operated below the surface of the ocean.”

    Then the report continued with some shocking speculation. 

    “It is possible the AAV demonstrated the ability to be cloaked or invisible to the human eye based on pilot reporting of the water disturbance with no visible craft,” the report explains. “Based on the assessment of Mr. [withheld] if the AAV did operate underwater undetected it would represent a highly advanced capability given the advanced capability of our sensors.”

    EXCLUSIVE REPORT: Scott Kelly Saw The Unexplainable in Space

    The report also made note of a significant amount of ridicule the pilots involved with the AAV incident received once back on the carrier. Fravor said when he was back onboard he reported to the Carrier Intelligence Center (CVIC). Once he got there, he says, “CVIC had donned tin-foil caps and wanted to know about the ‘UFO flight.’”

    CVIC completed a mission report (MISREP) on the incident, but the Carrier Air Wing Intelligence Officer was not taking the situation seriously. Out of respect for Fravor, who is described as “a very experienced and highly respected squadron commanding officer,” the report was sent up to the Commander of the Air Wing, who also did not take the incident seriously.


    According to the report, “When asked what [the Commander of the Air Wing] thought the AAV was he replied that he believed it was part of a counter drug operation based on the area of operations.”

    The author of the leaked report disagreed and wrote these “key assessments.”

    • The Anomalous Aerial Vehicle (AAV) was no known aircraft or air vehicle currently in the inventory of the United States or any foreign nation.

    • The AAV exhibited advanced aerodynamic performance with no visible control surfaces and no visible means to generate lift.

    • The AAV exhibited advanced propulsion capability by demonstrating the ability to remain stationary with little to no variation in altitude transitioning to horizontal and/or vertical velocities far greater than any know aerial vehicle with little to no visible signature.

    • The AAV possibly demonstrated the ability to ‘cloak’ or become invisible to the human eye or human observations.

    • The AAV possibly demonstrated a highly advanced capability to operate undersea completely undetectable by our most advanced sensors.

    Since KLAS leaked this report, there have been some doubts as to whether the military wrote it. Doubters have claimed the report does not follow the correct format, is speculative, and lists Wikipedia as sources in a couple of instances.

    I-Team member George Knapp, who wrote the article releasing the report, said he was not able to share more information about his sources at the time we contacted him. However, Leslie Kean, one of the authors of the December New York Times article, tweeted the report and wrote, “This was provided to us at the NY Times by a source in 2017. It was not classified; I can confirm that it's legit.”

    When we contacted Kean, she said she doesn't know for sure, but she thinks the group contracted by AATIP, Bigelow Aerospace Advanced Space Studies (BAASS), put it together. She is probably right.

    The New York Times article reported Bigelow Aerospace was contracted to perform UFO investigations for AATIP.  Robert Bigelow, a Las Vegas businessman and owner of the hotel chain Budget Suites of America, founded Bigelow Aerospace. Bigelow has had a lifelong interest in UFOs and the paranormal. 

    He is also interested in space. He founded Bigelow Aerospace in 1995 and it has become a significant player in the commercial space industry. BAASS is the division in Bigelow Aerospace dedicated to exploring the unknown.

    Dr. Eric Davis is an astrophysicist who has worked with BAASS and he recently responded to comments on social media that were criticising the format of the leaked Nimitz report. 

    “The 2009 Nimitz Tic-Tac UFO report is a typical sensitive-but-unclassified Navy component agency field investigation report, and I know the investigators/authors,” Davis wrote on Facebook. “The report followed the investigators’ own document/report format as there was no requirement for them to use any specific [Department of Defense] or [U.S. Navy] component agency document format.”

    Further confirmation came from documentary filmmaker Jeremy Corbell. Corbell is currently working on a project with Knapp regarding BAASS investigations and has been researching the Nimitz UFO event for several years. Corbell has been in contact with Fravor and he told Den of Geekthat, according to Fravor, the report leaked by Knapp and KLAS is the most accurate account of the events he has seen.

    Corbell also says he has spoken with military sources who say the Tic Tac object actively jammed the F-18s radars. There was a large round object spotted under the water at the disturbance that some believe the Tic Tac object docked with, and that the large round object was seen leaving the water.

    Corbell says he will be releasing more information on his investigation sometime in the future, but even without Corbell’s claims, the Nimitz report is mind-boggling, and according to Elizondo, there are more UFO cases in the Pentagon files just as juicy.

    "There are many, many Nimitz incidences that are equally compelling, that are told from the eyes of people like Commander Dave Fravor," Elizondo told KLAS.

    According to KLAS, “Another highly classified version [of the Nimitz report] was also written but is unlikely to ever be released.” When contacted by Den of Geek, Elizondo said he had seen a military report on the Nimitz incident but had not yet seen the report released by KLAS, so he is not sure if it was the same report. However, Elizondo said Knapp is a professional journalist, and he is sure Knapp would use credible sources.

    When we commented to Elizondo on the shocking nature of the Nimitz report, he replied, “You ain't seen nothing yet, baby!”

    Was Our Solar System Designed to Produce Humans?

    More than a decade has passed since we joined forces to try and find out if there was any reality to a claim that highly accurate units of length had been in used during the British Neolithic. We found that these supposedly primitive people were using a highly developed science that connected them to the rhythms of the Earth.

    But our biggest personal challenge has been to face up to the consequences of our own findings because they have brought us to the point where we have found compelling evidence that our planet and its environment has been carefully designed for us. Stranger still, there appears to be a message built into the very fabric of the solar system itself.

    This was not a finding that we had looked for or even care for. We are very pragmatic people working in an area of ancient research that is specialised and very sober.

    In early 2009 we decided to revisit all of our findings that had resulted in three joint books plus one still in draft manuscript form (now published). We were troubled because despite one of us being an agnostic and an atheist, we could not escape the conclusion we were looking at a message from what we called the UCA (Unknown Creative Agency) that had designed our solar system and all life on Earth.

    Then in late November 2009 we were contacted by David Cumming, an expert in AI (artificial intelligence) who had studied our evidence in great detail and independently come to the same conclusion. He claimed that it formed an equation with a very clear message from the creator. The equation and the mathematics of our discoveries is discussed later in this article.

    The Origin of the Megalithic Yard (MY)

    A BASIC PENDULUM IS A VERY ACCURATE TOOL TO MEASURE TIME.

    The starting point of our joint research was simply to consider whether Alexander Thom had been right or wrong in his identification of a prehistoric unit he called the Megalithic Yard (MY). He was a professor of engineering at Oxford University who surveyed hundreds of Megalithic sites over the course of half a century to 1985. Thom concluded the planners and builders must have been highly skilled engineers. He deduced the builders had all been working to a common set of units based on the Megalithic Yard that was 2.722 +/- 0.002 feet (829.7 +/- 0.5 mm). Thom was viewed as an unwelcome outsider by nearly all archaeologists.

    Our starting hypothesis was that if the Megalithic Yard were real, then it is highly probable that its apparent accuracy can best be explained as being derived from nature. If we could identify a natural origin, then Thom was probably right.

    It did not take too long for us to realise there is only one aspect of nature that delivers up a near perfect means of creating measures – the revolving of the Earth on its axis. This provides the potential for creating a unit of time that can then be used to make units of length, weight and capacity – and potentially everything else from frequency to temperature.

    The most obvious way to observe the turning of the Earth is to watch the stars, which appear to pass overhead once for each rotation. They also move across the sky in an annual rotation due to the Earth’s orbit of the Sun. Megalithic astronomers could not help but notice there where 366 of the daily star movements to one annual one.

    We know that ancient peoples from across time liked to create patterns where the same values work upwards and downwards. And we had good reason to believe that early stargazers had used a 366 day calendar and a 366 degree circle. These astronomers knew there are 366 star rises (any star such as Sirius) over one circle of the Sun, so it was logical to divide the horizon into 366 parts to measure time in 1/366th part of a day.

    They measured time in the same way that all clocks did until recent times – with a pendulum. A hand-held ball of clay on a string is a perfect instrument. When stationary it is a plumb line to gauge verticals and when swinging its beats measure time with great accuracy. The only factors that have any significant effect on the beat are the length of the pendulum from fulcrum to the centreline of the weight and the mass of the Earth (gravity). The energy put into the swing by the user has no effect – if the swing is made more vigorous it just swings faster in a wider arc but the rate of beat remains exactly the same.

    Our first and most obvious assumption was that Megalithic people had divided the horizon up into 366 equal parts and then used a pendulum length that beat 366 times.

    A FRAME 1/366TH OF THE HORIZON ANGLED TO TIME A STAR.

    We found that a pendulum that beat 366 times during one 366th of the Earth’s turn was, much to our joy and amazement, half a Megalithic Yard in length! A circle scribed by such a pendulum would have a diameter of one Megalithic Yard. Archie Roy, emeritus professor of astronomy at Glasgow University (and a friend of the late Alexander Thom) joined us to give a public demonstration of how the Megalithic Yard is a product of measured observational astronomy.

    We later refined the timing method, having realised that the Megalithic astronomers had improved their own accuracy by using the movement of the planet Venus at certain times rather than a star. Gordon Freeman, a distinguished professor of chemical physics and a much-published amateur archaeologist specialising in the Megalithic structures, was impressed with this saying; “Tying the MY to Venus path arcsecond is a major discovery. I’m an admirer of Thom, but was neutral about the MY. Now I’m a convert.”

    Alexander Thom had been right all along because the chances of this technique producing a perfect fit for his unit could not be a coincidence. But there was more – much more to this system. Given that the builders of these Megalithic sites some 5,000 years ago used a 366 degree circle caused us to look at the Earth itself. Taking the polar circumference as the textbook 40,000,000 metres, we turned it into Megalithic units and found this:

    Earth’s polar circumference   =   40,000,000 metres

    1 Megalithic degree (1/366th)   =   109290 metres

    1 Megalithic minute of arc (1/60th)  =   1822 metres

    1 Megalithic second of arc (1/6th)   =   303.6 metres

    Now, 303.6 metres for a second of arc may look a little boring but it is exactly 366 Megalithic Yards!

    The Megalithic second of arc appears to have been adopted later by the Minoan culture of Create some 4,000 years ago. The palaces of Crete were carefully surveyed by Canadian archaeologist J.W. Graham who identified a standard unit he called “the Minoan foot” of 30.36cm. It follows that 1,000 of these feet make precisely one Megalithic second of arc.

    Even earlier, the ancient Egyptian culture had adopted units driven by the same thinking. They took the Megalithic Yard and made it the circumference of a circle. The diameter of that circle was called a royal cubit and the hypotenuse of a square from that diameter was called a remen.

    Artefact Based Evidence

    When we wrote Civilization One, we stated that the people who created the Megalithic Yard must have built very large circles and divided the circumference into 366 parts to be sure they were viewing 1/366th part of the night sky. We suggested they may well have understood a quick method to do this by making a circle with a diameter 233 units (any length would do if they didn’t already have a Megalithic Yard). They then knew they would have a circle of 732 units – which is twice 366, so they could take every other pole on the circumference. This is a 99.999% accurate means of using Pi in a practical manner. For all engineering purposes, this means is perfect.

    THE THORNBOROUGH HENGES, A PERFECT COPY OF THE STARS OF ORION’S BELT. A TO B IS 366 MEGALITHIC RODS, B TO C IS 360 MEGALITHIC RODS AND THE TRUE NORTH/SOUTH LATITUDINAL DISTANCE (BLACK LINE) IS 3 MEGALITHIC SECONDS OF ARC.

    Several years later we found that structures even older than Megalithic monuments demonstrated the use of the 233/732 circles – exactly as we had predicted. These are henges – large circular mounds such as the group near Thornborough in North Yorkshire, England. They were built around 3500 BCE, well before the Megalithic builders began their stonework phase. What is more, they were using the Megalithic Yard. At Thornborough there are three interlinked henges that are 233 MY across and 732 MY around their outer perimeter. These structures are measurable with units and ratios being 366 Megalithic Rods between the centres of the first two and 360 between the second. The trio, which are also exactly 3 Megalithic seconds of arc apart by latitude, have also been identified as being laid out as a copy of the stars of Orion’s Belt – exactly like the Giza pyramids. The difference is that these are a thousand years older. We explain in our book Before the Pyramids how Khufu’s pyramid builders came to this location in England to get instructions on how to plan this star pattern on the ground!

    Weights and Measures

    Having established that the people of the British Neolithic had units of lengths and time, we wondered if they had other units such as capacity and weight. We knew (or so we thought) that the Metric system was devised by the French in the late 18th century when they used a pendulum that beat at the rate of one second to create a unit they called the metre (meaning to beat out time). They later made a very small adjustment so their metre was one 10,000,000th of the distance from the equator to the north pole. To create a unit of capacity they took a 1/10th part of the metre (10cm) and made a cube. Filled with distilled water, this cube’s capacity was called a litre and its weight was designated a kilogram.

    We applied the same logic to the Megalithic Yard, (which has 40 Megalithic Inches). We calculated what a 4 Megalithic Inch cube would contain. The answer is one pint – to an accuracy of one part in 5,000 as defined by the British government in 1601. And when carefully filled with any unpolished grain, such as barley, it weighed just one Imperial pound.

    This was odd in the extreme but it appears that (unknown to history) Imperial units were indeed based on cubes because by doubling the sides of the cube to 8 Megalithic Inches holds one Imperial gallon and doubling again produced a unit equivalent to a bushel, which was used as a dry weight until recent times.

    Next, we found some truly bizarre connections. We thought for thoroughness that we ought to consider the volumes of spheres with Megalithic dimensions in addition to the cubes: a 6 Megalithic Inch sphere held a litre and a 1.5 MY wide sphere of water weighs a metric tonne. The level of accuracy was not spot on, but at a level of 99% we were surprised to put it mildly.

    We are used to modern measurements that are ad hoc, but the 366 system works in depth. Take just two examples:

    1. Earth mass

    One Megalithic degree (366th) slice of the Earth = 360 x 1020 pounds

    One Megalithic minute slice of the Earth = 6 x 1020 pounds

    One Megalithic second slice of the Earth = 1020 pounds

    2. Temperature (hypothetical scale)

    Water freezes     @  0 degrees

    Water boils         @  366 degrees

    Absolute zero     @  – 1,000 degrees

    The Jefferson Paradox

    Thomas Jefferson, one of the Founding Fathers of the United States, was an amazing polymath. He set out to create a new system of units which were never adopted. He started by looking at what means nature provided for producing a repeatable unit and, like us, he quickly identified the spinning of the Earth and he used a pendulum that beat at the rate of once per second as his starting point.

    Thomas Jefferson had unknowingly connected back into the system from prehistory. The following is true:

    1,000 Jefferson Feet  = 360 Megalithic Yards

    366 Jefferson Furlongs  = 1 Megalithic degree of arc of the Earth

    3662 Jefferson Furlongs  = The exact circumference of the Earth

    This is a case-winning piece of evidence!

    The Sun and the Moon

    It is strange that the disc of the Moon should appear to be exactly the same size as the Sun. The Moon is obviously tiny compared to the Sun, and is much closer to Earth, but they still appear as equal discs. To be precise, the Moon is 400 times smaller than the Sun but is 400 times closer to the Earth. Strange!

    The odds against this happening at all are huge – but how bizarre that both values are the same, round number. Isaac Asimov, the respected scientist and science-fiction guru, described this perfect visual alignment as being, “the most unlikely coincidence imaginable.”

    This perfect fit only works at this point in time because it was very different in the distant past and it will change again.

    The strangeness of the Moon continues because it is either hollow or made up of extremely low density material. It centres of mass are just below its surface. Odd!

    Applying the Megalithic 366 system of geometry and MYs to the Moon and the Sun produces an astonishing result:

    One Megalithic second on Moon  =  100 Megalithic Yards

    One Megalithic second on Sun  =  40,000 Megalithic Yards

    It is almost as though we are looking at the blueprint of the solar system.

    The Rhythm of the Solar System

    Looking closely at every aspect, the following values also stand out:

    • 366
      The number of complete rotations of the Earth in a year

      The number of MY in a Megalithic second of arc on the Earth
      The percentage size of the Earth compared to the Moon
    • 100
      The number of MY in a lunar Megalithic second of arc

      The number of times the Earth rotates faster than the Moon
    • 400
      The Sun is larger than the Moon

      The number of kilometres the Moon turns on its axis in a day
      The number of times the Moon is closer to the Earth than the Sun
    • 10,000
      The number of times faster that light travels in a vacuum compared to Earth’s speed of orbit around the Sun

      The number of Earth turns in an orbit of the Sun x the number of Earth turns in one lunar orbit of the Earth
    • 40,000
      The number of kilometres to Earth’s polar circumference

      The number of MY in a solar second of arc
    • 1,000,000
      The number of times faster that light travels in a vacuum compared to the Moon’s speed of orbit around the Earth
    • 109.25
      The number of Earth diameters to the Sun’s

      The number of solar diameters across the maximum diameter of the Earth’s orbit around the Sun
    • 27.322
      The number times the Earth turns in one turn of the Moon

      The percentage size of the Moon to the Earth

    The Message

    Are we looking at ‘God’s blueprint’? These integer numbers could not possible fall out of the Earth – Moon – Sun relationship by accident when every other solar system body appears to have no rules whatsoever.

    The Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI), originally set up by NASA, spends a vast amount of energy searching for radio messages from a non-human origin based on the belief that we are probably not alone. Professor Christopher Rose and Dr. Gregory Wright have suggested:

    “Rather than transmitting radio messages, extraterrestrial civilisations would find it far more efficient to send us a ‘message in a bottle’, some kind of physical message inscribed on matter. And it could be waiting for us in our own backyard.”

    Could the Moon have been constructed as a message by integrating ratios and values of both the Sun and the Moon?

    Could humans have been ‘seeded’ on a planet that would sustain us? The Moon is an ‘incubator’ to nurture life. No Moon would mean no humans.

    Which brings us to David Cumming’s idea that all of this can be expressed as an ‘equation’ that formally identifies there is a message.

    The Equation

    The equation describes a relationship between the hydrogen fine transition line, the ratio between the circumference and diameter of a circle, and the speed of light in a vacuum.

    The top line of the equation, Hlf.π is the hydrogen line – a universal value used as the search frequency by SETI (the Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence).

    Omega is the number 0.0123456789 – all the characters of the base 10 number system. Standard physics says that the frequency of a wave, multiplied by the wavelength of that wave, is equal to the speed of the wave. In the case of the equation, when you divide out π/Ω, the answer must be equal to the wavelength of the hydrogen line, because the hydrogen line frequency multiplied by the hydrogen line wavelength must equal the speed of light.

    When we look at the overall equation, we know in advance that the equation will give the value for the speed of light very accurately because what we’re doing is multiplying the frequency of the hydrogen line by the wavelength of the hydrogen line. But remember, we’ve divided π (3.141592653) by Ω (0.0123456790) to get a result for the hydrogen line wavelength expressed in MYs, so the fact that we get a highly accurate answer appears to be nothing short of a miracle.

    The speed of light calculated using the equation is 1420,405,751 cycles per sec (frequency [Hz]) multiplied by 0.2544690072 MY (wavelength). This works out at 361,449,241.3 MY per second – the speed of light in Stone Age units!

    Amongst the many surprises of the last few years, there is one we came across in early 2009 that stumped us. As we explain in Before the Pyramids, there can be no doubt that the Founding Fathers of the USA secretly designed Washington DC using Megalithic seconds of arc for every detail of the City plan. It is still happening. The Pentagon is a perfect and inspirational exposition of Stone Age knowledge – using the 366 system with as much perfection as Stonehenge or Thornborough.

    And this was driven by the 33rd degree of the Ancient Scottish Rite of Freemasonry. Presidents and people unknown have been driven to build a city using God’s own values – a city fit for God’s great purpose.

    Do the powers that be in the USA already understand this message? Are they preparing to respond? Is there a new dawn ahead?

    Image result for Scientists Learn More About Jupiter’s Elusive Rocky Core and It’s as Weird as Ever

    For something called a “gas giant,” Jupiter stops being an airy mass of vapor and clouds pretty early in. Just 10 percent of the distance down, along Jupiter’s radius toward its interior, the large volume of mostly hydrogen gas that makes up the planet’s atmosphere is compressed by gravity into a quantum fluid: liquid metal hydrogen.

    Bear in mind that nobody has actually ever witnessed metallic hydrogen before — except allegedly these two guys at the the Max Planck Institute for Chemistry — but scientists are using its theoretical properties to teach NASA’s Juno probe how to read Jupiter’s atmosphere.

    The complex interrelationships between these layers, according to a new study, could help prove the existence and size of Jupiter’s elusive rocky core.

    Scientists Learn More About Jupiter's Elusive Rocky Core and It's as Weird as Ever

    Jupiter’s clearly banded stripes of cream-colored jet streams and eddies, the ones visible from space, are the by-product of oscillating wave that “exists from the surface down to the core” as Gary A. Glatzmaier a physicist at the University of California, Santa Cruz, tells Inverse.

    “The restoring force, which drives the wave,” he says, “is the Coriolis force, which is really part of the fluid’s acceleration but acts like a force when viewed in the rotating frame of reference of the planet.” (Think of the gases molecules on Jupiter like marbles rolling around on a spinning carousel, in other words.)

    Jupiter is rotating (like Earth) as it orbits the sun, and those forces along with thermal convection from solar rays and heat from the planet’s core — along with highly conductive electromagnetic behavior from that thick layer of metallic hydrogen liquid — are all exerting complicated effects on the Jovian weather patterns visible from space.

    Some of Jupiter’s weird weather patterns will only exist if there’s a rocky core to Jupiter for these convective waves to bounce off. And the location of those weather patterns should have a relationship to the core’s size. Junocam will be picking up images of those weather patterns, but also other data that should help elucidate what’s going inside, like “banded patterns of magnetic field and gravity field,” Glatzmaier says.

    Glatzmaier has been creating three-dimensional computer models simulating the behavior inside planets and stars since the 1980s — and his new modelling work on Jupiter, published Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, takes three different stabs at how exactly the electromagnetic effects of Jupiter large “quantum liquid” middle might be conducting heat, and bending the gas giant’s magnetosphere, and generally contrubuting to weird phenomena.

    After 39 Years, NASA Finally Solves the Mystery of Jupiter's Lightning

    Just to give you a strong visual sense of what weird means here: If Jupiter has a rocky core, it’s estimated to be a little bit larger than Earth. That’s surrounded by this turbulent pool of liquid metal hydrogen tens of thousands of miles in radius, and then a comparatively much thinner layer of gaseous atmosphere.

    Here’s what the calculated magnetic fields around Jupiter come out to in one of Glatzmaier’s simulations (left) as compared to a Los Alamos simulation of Earth’s magnetosphere (right):

    Juno Jupiter Earth Magnetospheres Simulations

    Simulations illustrating Jupiter's magentic field (left) and Earth's (right)

    “There are so many properties we don’t know about in Jupiter’s deep interior,” Glatzmaier says. “Even this relatively simple model requires so much supercomputer resources to simulate just a few years of time.”

    One of Glatzmaier’s three recent simulations of Jupiter showed an interesting oscillating jet stream, sometimes flowing eastward, sometimes, flowing westward, for two consistent years of the computer model’s 20-some-odd-years of simulated Jupiter time.

    “The oscillating jet stream,” he says, “is something never suggested or detected before.” Confirmation of its existence from Juno would allow the Jupiter’s rocky core to be extrapolated from Glatzmaier’s simulations, but he’s recognizes that it might be a long shot. “Although it would be exciting to see.”

    WORDT BINNENKORT LEVEN  OP MARS BEKEND GEMAAKT? ( VIDEO)

    Onlangs kwam NASA met de mededeling dat men organisch materiaal had ontdekt op Mars en dat dit een aanwijzing zou kunnen zijn dat er ooit leven is geweest. 

    Er was en er is volop leven op/rond Mars zoals deze week maar weer eens werd aangetoond door een UFO die met hoge snelheid de planeet passeerde. 

    Er zijn door de jaren heen zo ontzettend veel aanwijzingen geweest die allen aantonen dat er absoluut leven is geweest op Mars en nooit is daar door bijvoorbeeld NASA op gereageerd. Alleen al op deze website is zo langzamerhand een halve bibliotheek opgenomen over vondsten en bewijzen van leven op Mars.

    Nu hebben we Trump die met zijn SpaceForce een volgende fase inluidt. Een fase die verband houdt met het witwassen van de geheime ruimtevloot en wie weet het toch uiteindelijk wel bekennen dat er al heel lang leven is geweest op Mars. 

    In dat kader is het ook interessant dat er nu vanuit NASA de eerste stappen worden gezet en men enkele weken geleden trots aankondigde dat er organische leven was aangetroffen op Mars. 

    De bij ons inmiddels bekende Mr. MB333 staat op een ochtend heel vroeg in de tuin en via een telescoop observeert hij de planeet Mars. Hij maakt wat foto’s en een korte video en tot zijn verbazing staat er nog iets anders op de video. 

    Een heel snel licht oftewel een UFO die met hoge snelheid van rechts naar links over het scherm gaat. 


    Om nog eens aan te tonen op wat voor manier NASA rotzooit met foto’s, hierna nog een klein stukje uit een eerder artikel. 

    Mensen die nog steeds geloven dat instanties zoals NASA ons echt wel de waarheid vertellen en dat die aluhoedjes iedere keer dingen zien die er niet zijn, willen wij graag het volgende voorleggen: 

    Wat als er nu een foto is van NASA uit 2013, genomen door één van de NASA rovers op Mars, waarop duidelijk een gebouw is te zien? 

    Het gaat om een zwart/wit foto die is genomen op 6 september 2013 en waarop je in de verte duidelijk een soort (flat)gebouw ziet staan, achter de heuvels.


    xxx

    Wanneer je wat verder inzoomt, dan wordt duidelijk dat daar iets staat wat niet anders omschreven kan worden dan als een constructie, een gebouw.

    xxx

    Wie de originele foto wil bekijken, kan dat hier doen. Dan wordt er enkele jaren later opnieuw een foto gemaakt van hetzelfde gebied op Mars en de datum op de foto is dan 11 februari 2017. 

    Dit keer is het een kleurenfoto en ziet er als volgt uit.

    xxx

    En wanneer we hier wat inzoomen, dan blijkt opeens het gebouw uit de foto van enkele jaren geleden te zijn verdwenen.


    xxx

    Dan terug naar het heden en iemand die ook veel onderzoek heeft gedaan naar de planeet Mars, Tyler van Secureteam. 

    Hier volgt zijn video over Mars en zijn gedachten, waarbij het er steeds meer op begint te lijken dat we misschien binnenkort nog veel meer spannend nieuws over Mars kunnen verwachten.

    Climbing the ladder to life detection

     by Tricia Talbert, NASA

    Climbing the ladder to life detection

    On our quest to find life beyond Earth, scientists first must have to ask themselves: what signs would be the most compelling evidence?
    Credit: M. Neveu/NASA Astrobiology Program/NASA/JPL-Caltech/UCLA

    In the past two decades, NASA spacecraft have identified potentially habitable environments throughout the solar system and beyond. Spacecraft on Mars have found evidence that lakes and streams once covered the planet, protected by a long-gone thick atmosphere. At Saturn's moon Enceladus, the Cassini spacecraft sniffed plumes of water jetting out of Enceladus's icy shell—detecting chemistry akin to that occurring in certain places on Earth's seafloor, where seawater chemically reacts with rock (and where living creatures thrive). The upcoming Europa Clipper mission could do the same at Jupiter's moon Europa, where scientists have spotted more plumes. Even beyond the solar system, some of the thousands of planets now known to orbit other stars may harbor surface oceans.

    The next step in exploring these environments is to find out whether they're actually habitable—and then search for life. Unfortunately, no simple life-detection instrument currently exists. Unless a camera captures a growing mat of bacteria on a Martian rock or alien plankton swimming under Enceladus's ice, scientists must use a suite of instruments and diverse sets of data to look for biosigatures—or signs of life.

    But what are those signs? To help answer this question, a team from NASA's Astrobiology Program has developed the "Ladder of Life Detection," a guide for researchers where each rung represents a key attribute of life. The Ladder was published in the journal Astrobiology on June 4, 2018.

    The Ladder's Biosignatures

    "The Ladder of Life Detection lists 15 features that the astrobiology community proposed to represent indicators of life," said Marc Neveu, a postdoctoral fellow at NASA Headquarters in Washington, DC and lead author of the paper. The Ladder also describes how scientists might measure these features and determine whether they really are evidence of life.

    For instance, all life that we know of requires complex  and uses amino acids—two features in the Ladder.

    But just finding these molecules doesn't mean they arose from life. "Many of the molecules that are used by life can be formed without life," said Mary Voytek, Senior Scientist for Astrobiology at NASA Headquarters and paper coauthor. For example, chemical reactions on a planet or comet can form amino acids and other organic molecules.

    Scientists have to "figure out, with those caveats, how you can say that what you're looking at was produced by life," Voytek said.

    An indication would be target molecules found in unique proportions compared to expected levels in the surrounding environment. "The presence of something that's not predicted in the environment is evidence of life," Voytek said. "Life pushes things out of equilibrium."

    For instance, organic molecules of a certain complexity (think a Lego car versus individual bricks clicked together) could only have been made by life, Voytek continued. "Chemical complexity is a result of biology—it requires energy or enzymes to make it happen."

    Other biosignatures include pigments, indications of metabolism (e.g., waste heat or compounds breathed out by life), or even evidence of Darwinian evolution. The latter can't currently be detected within the timescales of a space mission, but would be the golden ticket to identifying life.

    Understanding the Environmental Context

    Whether scientists can measure these biosignatures, either remotely or in place, is the next question, Voytek said. It's not just about instrument performance or avoiding the contamination of samples with molecules brought from Earth. Scientists will also need to consider the . How fragile is the sample? Can our analysis destroy the sample? Does the environment chemically change the sample? Can life tolerate the conditions where the sample came from (like the radiation-exposed surface of Mars or the cold depths of an ocean under ice)?

    The Ladder lists answers for each biosignature, based on experience gained by looking for life on Mars and in Earth's oldest rocks and most extreme environments. As it turns out, easier measurements to make (the bottom rungs) might be harder to interpret than rungs further up the Ladder. Climbing the Ladder toward  will require challenging measurements.

    Neveu stressed that the rungs on the Ladder aren't set in stone—with more research and discussion, each step of the Ladder can be moved around, and more can be added. He and his coauthors encourage input from the astrobiology community to improve the Ladder.

    Water May Not Be the Only Sign of Alien Life

    A new study suggests also looking for "bioessential" elements when searching for alien life.

    (Inside Science) – When it comes to looking for alien life, scientists mostly focus on where there is water. Now researchers suggest that looking at "bioessential" elements such as phosphorus and molybdenum could help judge a world's potential for life.

    There is life virtually wherever there is water on Earth, from clouds high above the surface to the deepest layer of Earth's crust. As such, the search for life outside Earth typically concentrates on worlds that are "habitable," possessing temperatures conducive to hosting liquid water on its surface.

    For example, although the surface of Venus is currently hot enough to melt lead, a 2016 study suggested it may have been habitable until as recently as 715 million years ago. Scientists have even conjectured that if life once existed on Venus, it still might survive within its clouds.

    However, "there are of course other ingredients needed for life as we know it," said study senior author Avi Loeb, chair of astronomy at Harvard University in Cambridge. For example, on Earth, elements that are key to how much life oceans hold may include nitrogen and phosphorus. Nitrogen is needed to create proteins, and both nitrogen and phosphorus are key ingredients of DNA and RNA. Several recent studies suggest the increased availability of phosphorus in the oceans about 635 million to 800 million years ago may have even helped support the evolution of animals on Earth, the researchers noted.

    To see what roles such bioessential elements might play in the evolution of alien life, the researchers focused on how accessible they might be on worlds with liquid oceans underneath their frozen surfaces, much like Jupiter's moon Europa and Saturn's moon Enceladus. "People suspect there may be life in liquid water under the ice in Europa and Enceladus, and both NASA and ESA [the European Space Agency] have plans to visit them with missions such as Europa Clipper 1," Loeb said.

    On Earth, a major source of phosphorus in oceans is via the weathering of so-called felsic rock by mildly acidic rainwater. Phosphorus is in turn removed from Earth's seas by hydrothermal activity; prior work suggests hydrothermal activity exists on Enceladus and presumably Europa as well, the researchers said.

    Radiation from Jupiter constantly bathes Europa's surface, generating molecules known as oxidants, and as Europa's icy surface churns, these oxidants can enter Europa's hidden seas, where they can react with sulfides and make the water highly acidic. As such, Europa may possess enough phosphorus to support life, although highly acidic oceans might stifle chances for life, the researchers said.

    In contrast, previous research suggested the underground oceans of Enceladus may be strongly alkaline. In the new study, the scientists calculated that if a world's oceans are either neutral or alkaline and possess hydrothermal activity, "phosphorus may be entirely removed from the subsurface ocean world in a very short timescale compared to the age of the solar system -- millions of years," said study lead author Manasvi Lingam, an astrophysicist at Harvard.

    The scientists also suggested trace metals such as molybdenum, manganese and cobalt might prove bioessential as well. "Molybdenum plays a crucial role in several enzymes, most notably in fixing nitrogen" -- that is, breaking apart the powerful chemical bonds that hold nitrogen atoms in pairs in the atmosphere and "fixing" the resulting single nitrogen atoms into vital organic molecules, Lingam said. In addition, molybdenum "affects protein synthesis as well as metabolism and growth in many organisms," he explained.

    Furthermore, "manganese plays an important role in the context of generating oxygen via photosynthesis in chloroplasts," Lingam said. "Cobalt has a variety of biological roles in metabolism -- most notably, it forms a component of the vitamin B-12."

    "The idea of a habitable zone goes back to the 1950s, and since that time we've learned a lot, such as the existence of subsurface oceans, so it's important to move our thinking about habitability being just about water to specific elements and chemicals that might be essential for life," said astrophysicist Adam Frank at the University of Rochester in New York, who did not participate in this study.

    One way to remotely see if alien worlds outside of our solar system might have bioessential elements is to look at their stars, which might shed light on the compositions of their planets and moons. The presence of an element in a star would generate a unique spectrum of colors visible in its starlight, and "could thereby provide us with some information regarding the habitability of any planets orbiting them," Lingam said.

    If a world's levels of bioessential elements are low, that may limit their potential for life as we know it. Although the new study suggested that future missions to Europa and Enceladus only had a slim chance of detecting life, they are "an excellent opportunity to falsify our model, and therefore we are in favor of such missions," Lingam said

    Planetary scientist Jonathan Lunine at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York, who did not take part in this research, cautioned "these are calculations based on simple assumptions, and we must always remember that planets and moons are more complex than we expect -- that is one of the lessons of the discoveries made by planetary exploration. So we should not take the results as definitive, but as a way of pointing toward some of the observations that ought to be made by future missions."

    The researchers cautioned that although bioessential elements might prove rare on average across a world, patches could exist on a world where levels of these elements, and the chances for life, are higher, Lingam said. And of course, the researchers only accounted for life as we know it -- "life as we do not know it might follow different chemical routes than on Earth, which would be a more exciting finding than finding life as we do know it," Loeb said.

    Lingam and Loeb detailed their findings online May 31.

    NASA .
     De Amerikaanse ruimtevaartorganisatie NASA heeft een even mysterieuze als indrukwekkende foto genomen van een blauwe zandduin op Mars. “De duin bestaat uit fijner materiaal en hebben een andere samenstelling dan de omliggende duinen”, luidt het.

    De MRO (Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter) van NASA nam al in januari een foto van de blauwe zandduin op Mars, maar NASA maakt die vandaag pas publiek. De duin ligt in de buurt van de Lyotkrater, waar wel meer zandduinen liggen. Maar wetenschappers hebben vastgesteld dat de opvallende blauwe duin een andere samenstelling heeft dan de andere duinen.

    Grijs zand

    Eigenlijk is het zand op de duin grijs, maar omdat de foto bewerkt is om het contrast te vergroten, valt de duin blauw uit. Dat zegt planetair geoloog Alfred McEwen. Waarom het zand een andere samenstelling heeft, is voorlopig onduidelijk.

    About Those Winged Chupacabras

    Mention the word “Chupacabra” to most people and it will almost certainly provoke imagery of strange, hairless dog-like animals mainly seen in the southwest area of the United States. They are actually coyotes with a few genuinely odd issues that go beyond just mange. It should be noted, however, that what passes for the Chupacabra today is very different to the original Chupacabra that surfaced on Puerto Rico in the mid-1990s. One of the most striking things about the Puerto Rican creature is that in more than a few cases it has been described as having wings. This is, of course, nothing like what has been seen in Texas, Arizona, New Mexico and Oklahoma. I’ll share with you a few examples from my own files.

    In 2004, I headed out to Puerto Rico with a team from the SyFy Channel to make a show on the Chupacabra. The show was titled Proof Positive. One of the witnesses was a woman named Norka, whose encounter occurred midway through 1975, twenty years before the Chupacabra phenomenon began. It was dusk, on a stiflingly hot, weekday night and the atmosphere – as day began to surrender to nightfall – was as normal and tranquil as it had ever been. It wasn’t long, however, before normality and tranquility gave way to something hideous. As Norka drove carefully and slowly along the twisting, climbing road, something suddenly surfaced from the huge, dense trees that stood proud and tall, like gigantic green curtains, and which dominated each side of the road.

    Doing barely twenty miles an hour to begin with, Norka was easily able to slow down as a curious beast loomed into view. Norka, looking into the cameras of the SyFy Channel, said that only about twenty feet in front of her was the strangest, most terrifying animal it had ever been her misfortune to encounter. For all intents and purposes, it looked very much like a bat. Except, that is, for one astonishing thing: the abomination was around four to five feet in height.

    Not surprisingly, Norka could scarcely believe her eyes as the monster shuffled slowly across the road, its muscular legs taking slow but deliberate strides across the hot tarmac. With her eyes transfixed on the beast, Norka could see that its body was dark brown in color. Two large wings were folded tight against its back. The clawed fingers on its hands – that drooped in curious, limp fashion from its bony wrists – were of a distinct, white-yellow hue. Of a near-identical color were two enormous fangs that protruded from its gaping, almost slack-jawed, mouth. Most frightening of all to Norka were the eyes of the creature: focused intently on Norka herself, they were almost blazing, like red hot coals. It was soon gone from sight.

    While I was on Puerto Rico in the summer of 2004, I gave my phone number to all of the Puerto Rico-based crew-members on the Proof Positive shoot, just in case any of them got any leads of the chupacabra variety. As a result, and late one morning not long after I returned home, I received a phone call from a woman I’ll call Rosa. I listened both carefully and intently as Rosa told me how, on a Friday night, around thirteen years previously, she was having a night on the town, in Old San Juan, with one of her girlfriends. The evening was normal, fun and just like any Friday night anywhere on the planet. At least, it was until they decided to head home.

    For reasons which neither Rosa nor her friend could ever fathom, both developed a sudden and overpowering urge to drive to El Yunque. It was, said Rosa, as if the pair was in a kind of hypnotic haze. Around 1.00 a.m. they arrived at the base of the rain forest and took a long and winding road – one that I know very well – into its depths. They had driven along the compact, coiling road for around fifteen minutes when they encountered something that was as remarkable as it was terrifying: a very strange animal making its slow way across the road.

    Whatever the creature was, it was certainly no regular resident of Puerto Rico. Somewhere in the region of four and a half feet in height, its color was gray, it moved across the road in a curious, tentative fashion (as if, said Rosa, it wasn’t even used to walking), and sported a pair of what were undeniably wings on its hunched back. The wings, she added, were so long, they dragged on the ground for a couple of feet behind the beast. There was one more thing: the animal had a pair of self-illuminating red eyes. That much was apparent when it stopped in its tracks and gave the friends an icy stare, after which it continued on its odd, clumsy, penguin-like walk to the left side of the road and vanished into the trees.

    Then there was my 2005 trek around Puerto Rico with Paul Kimball’s Redstar Films team from Canada.  A resident of a small village that was home to a cool-looking church, one which rather reminded me of an old English castle, our source had an encounter in early 2005 with…well…something. It clearly wasn’t your average chupacabra, but it did end with multiple animal mutilations; so, in that sense, the story has relevance. The month, the man thought, was February, and the time, definitely late evening. He was walking past the old church when an ear-splitting roar filled the air. It came from an area dominated by tall, thick trees and barely fifty feet away. Frozen rigid in his tracks, he stared intently at the woods.

    Suddenly, something terrifying happened: a huge, feathery beast burst through the trees and took to the skies. Whatever the creature was, it was no ordinary bird; the incredible size of it, somewhere in the region of a man, made that abundantly clear. The man could only stare in awe as the infernal thing flapped its mighty wings and vanished into the distance.

    To keep matters balanced, it’s very important to read the words of Ben Radford on the matter of the Puerto Rican Chupacabra. He said that: “…the origin of the mysterious vampire beast el chupacabra can be traced back to a Puerto Rican eyewitness who saw the 1995 film Species, which featured a nearly identical monster. Though both vampire legends and ‘mysterious’ animal predation date back many centuries, there seems to be no evidence of any blood-sucking ‘chupacabra’ before the 1990s.”

    Ben also says: “The chupacabra has two origin stories invoked to help explain its sudden appearance: the first is that the creature is an extraterrestrial brought here by visiting aliens; the second is that the chupacabra is an escaped entity created in a top-secret U.S. government genetics laboratory experiment gone wrong—essentially a classic conspiracy-laden Frankenstein scenario. Not coincidentally, these two origin stories are identical to those of Sil, a chupacabra-like monster in the film Species.”

    Ben notes too that in some cases wings have been reported, as have feathers on the backs of the animals. Ben, however, is strongly of the opinion that Species played a major role in the development of the phenomenon. I’m not so sure, primarily because (a) there are cases that predate the 1990s by not just years but by decades; and (b) during the course of my now-eleven trips to Puerto Rico I have had the good fortune to speak to a lot of witnesses to the Chupacabra, and who come across as very credible.  What’s important, though, is that whatever your opinion on the undeniably controversial matter of winged-things versus odd-looking coyotes, the Puerto Rican beast is nothing like the one that roams the southwest. And it never has been.

    UFO Death Cult Movie Favors Subtlety Over Spectacle

    Movies about UFO death cults are few and far between. So those who are in to that sort of thing (UFO death cults), will no doubt be excited at the impending release of The Endless, a critically-acclaimed sci-fi horror from directors Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead. The directors also star in the movie; they play brothers who find themselves drawn back to Camp Arcadia, a secretive community from which they’d escaped as young men. Hoping their return will bring them some closure, they’re instead confounded by inexplicable phenomena occurring around the camp. Meanwhile, the cult members ominously prepare for a mysterious “event”…

    The micro-budget movie has received rave reviews from critics; its vérité aesthetic enhancing the fantastical elements of its plot. The Endless also apparently shares the same creative universe as the directors’ first movie—the genre-defying Resolution (2013). The Endless received a limited US theatrical release back in April this year, but, at this point, very few people will have seen the movie. It arrives on DVD and Blu-ray on this week in the US and will soon available in Europe on VOD.

    It’s refreshing to see filmmakers thoughtfully engage with alien themes outside the narrative constraints and popular expectations that come with a mega-budget. There have, of course, been a number of UFO movies over the years that have quietly eschewed traditional approaches to the subgenre (among them The Stranger Within and The Arrival of Wang), though most of them fail to find an audience upon release. Still, I’m firmly of the opinion that less is often more; what is suggested or implied can be so much more effective than what is shown; a whisper can be louder than a scream. This stripped-back approach was successfully embraced earlier this year in A Quiet Place, in which Earth is invaded by sightless aliens with hypersensitive hearing, sending the remaining human population into silent hiding. The movie cost in the region of $17 million (very modest for Hollywood) and grossed in excess of $326 worldwide. Unsurprisingly, a sequel is now in development.

    Perhaps movies like A Quiet Place and The Endless are signalling a new approach to the alien/UFO subgenre of science-fiction, one not reliant upon epic spectacle, the American military, and cheesy one-liners. Roland Emmerich, take note…

    Footage Of Live UFOs On The Moon

    This video of ‘Bruce Sees al’ consists of live moon footage of UFOs on the lunar surface.


    The recordings of the recent UFO activities have been taken with a CGXL 1400 High Definition Telescope.

    All moving objects above the surface of the moon have been zoomed in and analyzed by ‘Bruce Sees al’ and it shows that there is much more UFO activity on the moon than we know.

    After Theft: Crop Circle Exhibition 2018 looks for Supporters

    Launched in 2014 as the world’s first exhibition on the phenomenon and research of crop circles in a natural science museum – the “Crop Circle Exhibition & Information Centre” – has found its home this year in the new spacious Honeystreet Mill Café, near Alton Barnes in Wiltshire. After a burglary into the winter storage of the exhibition and the theft of essential parts of the display and technical equipment, the exhibition organizers ask crop circle enthusiasts now via crowdfunding for support for the coming summer.

    “Crop Circle Exhibition & Information Centre 2018” from July 1st to August 12, 2018 at the Honeystreet Mill Café, neat Alton Barnes, Wiltshire (UK).

    The burglary (read more about it here) of the winter storage rooms was discovered a few weeks ago when the exhibition was to be transported to their new home. High-quality exhibits and panels as well as technical equipment such as digital photo and video frames, cameras, headphones and video projector were stolen. “The total loss was in excess of 5.000 British Pounds (about 6.700 US-Dollar),” reports Monique Klinkenbergh, who had curated and designed the exhibition together with crop circle researcher Andreas Müller originally for the cultural-historical “Wiltshire Museum” in Devizes, GreWi reported. Since then they expanded and supplemented the annual summer exhibition in Wiltshire.

    “The exhibition itself was always meant as a self-financed and self-sustained non-profit information and educational project,“ explains Müller. “While previous exhibitions have been a visitor’s success and had already set a visitor’s record in 2014 for the Wiltshire Museum, otherwise known for its original archaeological finds from ancient Stonehenge they always left a financial four-figure loss every year to compensate. Therefore the current theft caused a painful gap.”

    Some compiled thumbnails of the “digital version of the crop circle exhibition”, which supporters receive as a small thank-you-gift.

    For this reason, the exhibition organizers and their numerous volunteers now turn to all crop circle friends who would like to support the exhibition with a private crowdfunding campaign financially: “On the website of the exhibition, there is a donation-button, and if you donate 10 GBP (about 13 US-Dollar) or more, you will receive a copy of the ‘Exhibition at Home’ – your digital edition of the Crop Circle Exhibition, featuring all the (updated) information panels of our previous exhibitions.“

    “Every little support is a great help to us” conclude Klinkenbergh and Müller and thank all supporters in advance.

    WORLD UFO DAY 2017: 9 ALIEN ENCOUNTERS THAT WILL MAKE YOU BELIEVE

    Alien encounters, the type that involve UFOs and blinding lights and extraterrestrial hands probing you, often defy all scientific and logical explanation and are often the same kind of hoaxes baring huge fangs on the cover of The Sun ...

    ... until they're not.

    While infinite faux encounters have been crawling all over the media even before War of the Worlds was taken way more seriously than the dramatization it was supposed to be, actual aliens do lurk among the sensational clickbait of the Internet. Except these accounts expose the real terrors that some Earthlings went through when they saw something they shouldn't have. Or ended up somewhere they shouldn't have. Or ended up with a passenger that shouldn't have been riding shotgun in their car.

    However bizarre it might seem to encounter an extraterrestrial light show thousands of feet in the air or to just vanish and show up in your backyard months later thinking it was only a couple of hours (presumably because you were on board something that traveled into the far reaches of space at the speed of light), these experiences that may not be as famous as Roswell and other Area 51's are even more chilling on account of them haunting the memories of people who never worked for the FBI or CIA or even SETI. You might expect a bizarre flash of something when you've been searching for it since the Clinton era. Not so when you're just trying to drive home after dark without your engine breaking down.

    Probe these 9 alien encounters that are almost (operative word here) beyond belief and even nonbelievers will find it impossible to stay in the cynic bubble.

    ufo-sanant.jpg
    01. Those aren't Christmas lights
    An amateur astronomer observed something beyond imagination after eyeing a bizarre white  flash that was definitely not of this planet.

    Heat lightning would have been the assumption, but the night was clear and cloudless with no forecasted storms. Whatever it was briefly lit up the entire night sky with an otherworldly blaze. It tinged the surrounding air, which somehow felt heavier, with a mysterious metallic taste. Then an unexpected flash of red exploded in the darkness. When it seemed things couldn't get much weirder, the light show began.

    Alternating white and red flashes appeared, and someone out there must have been having fun twisting human brains because a third flash soon joined the production. It was almost as if they were being beamed into the sky as some sort of mysterious communication mode.

    Then came the noise that silenced everything. Frogs stopped croaking, crickets ceased their chirping and the night went deathly silent at the sinister whirring until every dog in the neighborhood started barking like it was the apocalypse. This whirring kept rising in volume as the flashes ascended.

    The alien fireworks have never been explained, but the astronomer and a legion of canine witnesses remain forever spooked.

    lightningbolts.jpg
    02. The perfect storm (for abduction)

    Storms sometimes bring other things down to Earth besides rain.

    Thunder and lightning probably aren’t how you'd want to spend your birthday, but Jason Andrews of Kent, England got much more than cake when he turned four in July 1987. He began muttering complex mathematical equations as the sky exploded with lightning. Even Einstein probably hadn't been able to understand math of this level at that age, but Jason kept spewing numbers as if he was on the brink of developing an unprecedented theorem. Then the windows began to tremble when Jason turned to his parents in a trancelike state and said "They are waiting for me! I have to go!" His father struggled to pull him back from the doorway, and as he did so it was as if someone took a tranquilizer to the storm. The windows stopped rattling. The trance broke.

    Jason was being drawn towards something — an alien starship? A makeshift lab for probing human specimens? — and probably would have followed the invisible force that had him in its claws if it weren't for his altered state being shattered.

    Years later, Jason revealed that he had been getting nightly visits from something definitely not human. The controversial theory behind his experience is that he has some sort of remote viewing capabilities that attracted aliens to him.

    Whether or not science thinks this phenomenon is real, there is at least one person on this planet who certainly does.

    03. Nobody knows but it's green

    Sometimes the monsters aren't under your bed but outside your window. The monsters became real in 2009 for one anonymous witness who only wanted to relax with headphones on when an unearthly sound cut through the edgy guitars and haunting vocals of Tool. It was the type of high-pitched electric sound that assaults your ears — except this wasn't caused by a scratch on the CD. Whatever the source of the noise (which kept getting louder) was bathed the entire room in an ectoplasmic green glow.

    Now this is the part when that sinking feeling that warns you not to look out the window, but you do anyway. Because you feel a presence. That presence was an enormous airborne vessel, a triangular metal thing that doesn’t typically take off from any human airport. It was pulsing with orbs of that same eerie green radiation.

    As if the fear factor wasn’t enough, the thing then shook the house violently before floating off into the dark unknown. At least it didn't end up hurtling through the sky and crashing in the land of Oz.

    This event occurred in northeast Ohio, known to be a hotbed of paranormal activity. Why everything freaky comes out to play there is still beyond science.

    APRO22-4.jpg
    04. Roadside attractions

    The obstacle that Wisconsin resident William Bosak encountered on the road in 1974 while driving home after dark was no pothole.

    Foggy nights can be deceptive, especially when it comes to separating those murky tendrils from something supernatural, but what Bosak saw as he slowed down towards a strange roadside object defies explanation. While the brightness of his headlights seemed to vaporize the bottom half of ... whatever it was ... that which he was able to see would have sent anybody into the middle of the road screaming.

    Staring through an enormous glass dome was Chewbacca in spandex ... or, at least it would've made a killer backup for Chewie. This hairy humanoid in a skintight bodysuit had ears protruding from the top of its head and terrified eyes that bulged from a face that could have been a mashup of human and bovine DNA. It looked as if it had thrown its arms above its head in surrender. Just one eyeful of this ten-foot monster was enough to make Bosak frantically step on the accelerator, but to his horror, the lights inside his car went dark and a suspicious noise suggested the engine was missing.

    That the former UFO skeptic now believes is an understatement.

    05. Morphing on the fly

    In 1989, an airline pilot taking off from Kansas City International Airport flew into something unexpected when he encountered an alien white disc among the clouds.

    Almost an illusion at first, the disc appeared dim to pilot Andrew Danziger until the plane began to descend. Hovering above the clouds where the disc had been, an immense red orb not unlike a blood moon or blazing sunset sent the pilot and his copilot into a psychological tailspin (they somehow managed not to spook the passengers). It also started playing a deranged game at 13,000 feet.

    As the aircraft lost altitude, so did the orb. There was a moment of relief when it seemed to vanish into a cloud — only to re-manifest within the clouds as hundreds of flashing lights that would rival anyone's electric holiday display. Even more mind-blowing, the cloud this thing had descended into was now pulling itself apart like galactic goo.

    The second it succeeded in tearing itself apart, everything that had been materializing for the last 40 minutes disappeared. Danziger filed a UFO report stat after landing. Even creepier is that he was just one of many to report the phenomenon involving this unidentified flying whatever.

    Nothing was ever identified by air traffic controllers.

    06. Garden gnomes from outer space

    The peculiar figures that appeared at one Wisconsin couple's door one night were mistaken for trick-or-treaters who had forgotten Halloween was over — until they floated.

    Whoever (or whatever) rang the doorbell was a wrinkled life-form that looked like a cross between a scarecrow and a garden gnome that could have been a horror movie extra. Obscuring its face was a floppy hat from which stray tufts of hair stuck out and its chin was unnaturally sharp. It was either nonverbal or refused to speak -- what must have been its mouth was a puckered toothless void.

    The creature was also clutching a strange white staff that the couple soon realized wasn't made of anything earthly when the creature reacted to human hands reaching out to touch it and make sure it wasn't a teenage prank. When it raised the staff and struck the sidewalk, it floated backwards. Its four companions were standing silently in the grass and on the asphalt like lawn ornaments. They were all clutching their staffs, thought to be energy rods powered by an unknown force, levitating several inches above ground. By morning, they disappeared as mysteriously as they had arrived.

    Whatever these things were, they were anything but costumed humans.

    07. Glow-in-the-dark hitchhikers

    Orbs of unexplained origin seem to be a common thread in UFO sightings, but this one just takes that otherworldly glow to a whole new level.

    When a security officer was driving home on a South Dakota highway in 2011, hundreds of mysterious red lights started to appear and circle the moving car like some sort of alien halo. Though the driver thought he was still doing 60, the car was decelerating with absolutely no explanation. Then the lights vanished and the car sped up ...

    Just as unexplained as the vanishing light halo was what appeared in its absence. The officer noticed something strange — beyond strange — at the side of the road. Then the thing was on the car. It was a glowing, translucent life-form with gangly arms that stretched right through the roof of the officer's vehicle. Spindly fingers ran down his back and left a burning sensation.

    But there was more where that came from. By the curb was another glowing creature that could only be described as the evil version of Hoggle from Labyrinth.

    The translucent thing made itself a passenger until it sensed more humans. Then it vanished, but the horror never did.

    08. Monolithic madness

    When Lee Parish was driving home in the dark back in 1977, the road was surprisingly well-lit — but not by a streetlight.

    What Parish remembered under hypnosis later on was that a huge rectangular UFO floating above his Jeep was lighting the way. Of course, it wasn't just there to function as a superpowered flashlight. His car then came to a sudden stop directly beneath the strange spacecraft. While alien forces messing with auto innards isn't exactly unknown, what supposedly happened next was almost unbelievable. The hypnotized Parish recalled that his car was somehow being levitated by the UFO. He then found himself standing inside it.

    The spacecraft’s inner chamber was circular with white walls that emitted an otherworldly glow. (Everything apparently has to glow in alien starships.) He was surrounded by three blocky beings (which also glowed from within). The black entity was the nightmare version of a 20-foot-tall suitcase, while the red one was like a walking one-armed Coke machine. The white one, the obvious leader, was two-armed and square-headed.

    The creatures examined Parish with an unnervingly freezing touch that sung wherever their limbs and half-limbs went exploring. Then, with no explanation, they merged into each other and vanished.

    Parish might have gotten away, but the unfortunate Jeep's electrical systems soon failed.

    09. When the dead aren't dead

    Sometime in the 1960s, somewhere in Ethiopia, a boy named Gabriel was running around the backyard with his friend when he just disappeared. Just like that. Then he materialized six months later. Just like that.

    After everyone who thought Gabriel was dead could be assured they were not seeing a ghost, he recounted a story that wouldn't have been out of place on The Twilight Zone ...

    Gabriel had been led into a glowing, windowless white room by benevolent humanoid creatures. Inside were child abductees from all over planet Earth. (How they and the 'men' who had abducted them could understand each other was a mystery.) With the press a button on the wall, a bed instantly appeared — which makes you wonder how long some of those kids had been on board.

    Before Gabriel knew it, he found himself standing in a sparkling city, surrounded by supernatural skyscrapers and flying cars. Beings that appeared both human and alien walked streets that almost shone. The boy was then taken to an impossibly tall building by one of his captors and shown to a room in which he could push any button and be transported to any number of places. When he was told he needed to stay a while, he had no idea exactly how long "a while" would be. He claimed it felt like a mere couple of hours.

    This is why you never, ever go off with strangers.

    Japan’s Hayabusa 2 closes in on diamond-shaped asteroid Ryugu

    The closest view of Ryugu released so far, from a distance of only 62 miles (100 kilometers), on June 20, 2018, showing a rough diamond shape, craters and boulders, as well as a bright spot bear the top point of the diamond.

    Japan’s Hayabusa 2 spacecraft is now rapidly approaching asteroid Ryugu, providing the first-ever close-up views of this near-Earth object. According to The Mainichi, a news source covering the encounter from Japan, the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) said on June 24, 2018, that the Hayabusa 2 space probe has successfully completed a course adjustment and entered the final leg of its 4.5-year journey to the asteroid. Its planned arrival will be on June 27. Meanwhile, JAXA has also released a new set of images, showing a roughly diamond-shaped body – also being compared to a spinning top – with boulders and craters.

    As of June 24, the most recently released images are from a distance of 136-62 miles (220-100 km). A bright spot can be seen near the top point of the diamond (shades of Ceres?) and what may be an equatorial ridge, something seen elsewhere in the solar system as well, such as on Saturn’s moon Iapetus and several other Saturn moons (Atlas, Pan, Daphnis).

    The images are already showing quite a bit of detail, and of course, they will only get better as the spacecraft gets even closer!

    Ryugu is small, with a diameter of about 2,788-2,887 feet (850 to 880 meters), and has an appearance similar to the asteroid Bennu, which the U.S. spacecraft OSIRIS-REx will encounter in 2020. Hayabusa 2 will attempt to send both a small lander and rovers to the surface of the asteroid, as well as bring samples back to Earth for study.

    Additional images from Hayabusa 2’s approach, from June 18-20.

    Image via JAXA/University of Tokyo/Kochi University/Rikkyo University/Nagoya University/Chiba Institute of Technology/Meiji University/University of Aizu/AIST.

    On June 19, Makoto Yoshikawa, the Hayabusa 2 mission manager for JAXA, said in a statement:

    When I saw these images, I was surprised that Ryugu is very similar in shape to both the destination of the U.S. OSIRIS-REx mission, asteroid Bennu, and also the target of the previously proposed MarcoPolo-R mission by Europe, asteroid 2008 EV5. Bennu and 2008 EV5 are about half the diameter (and 1/8 the volume) of Ryugu, with rotation periods about half as long. In other words, these celestial bodies are small and rotating fast compared to Ryugu. On the other hand, Bennu is a B-type asteroid, which is very similar to C-type asteroids such as 2009 EV5 and Ryugu. Therefore there should also be common properties due to the asteroid type. So we have both differences and similarities that have combined to produce very similar shapes … why is that? I think this is very interesting. So far, the asteroids we have explored have been different in shape, so Ryugu and Bennu could be the first time two similar-shaped asteroids have been examined. It will be interesting to clarify exactly what this similarity means scientifically.

    Images from Hayabusa 2’s approach to Ryugu, from between June 17-18, 2018.

    Image via JAXA/University of Tokyo/Kochi University/Rikkyo University/Nagoya University/Chiba Institute of Technology/Meiji University/University of Aizu/AIST.

    After Hayabusa 2 arrives at Ryugu, it will be only 12.5 miles (20 km) above the asteroid’s surface. Between this coming September and July of next year, one small lander (called MASCOT-1) and three small rovers (called MINERVA-II) will be deployed to the surface. Before then, however, the spacecraft will need to study the asteroid to find the best landing locations. As Yoshikawa noted:

    If the axis of rotation for Ryugu is close to the vertical direction in this image, there is a big advantage as it will be possible to know almost the entire appearance of Ryugu at an early stage after arrival. This makes the project planning easier. However, it is also possible that potential landing sites may be limited to the equator of Ryugu. I hope we can find a suitable place to set down the lander and rovers.

    Ryugu is already proving to be an interesting body, as described by optical navigation camera principal investigator Seiji Sugita:

    As we approached Ryugu and were able to distinguish individual features in the asteroid’s topology, it became clear that Ryugu has a land of rich terrain. Numerous clusters of rock roll on the surface. Among these, a large rocky mass (about 150m across) stands out on the upper part of Ryugu due to its brighter color (higher reflectivity). The belt-shaped ring of peaks that surround the equator are also slightly brighter than their surroundings. This color difference may reflect a difference in material composition and the size of the particles that form the rock. We can also see many sunken regions that look like craters. These depressions may have been made in collisions with other celestial bodies. A structure that looks like a grove is also visible.

    The existence of such varied topographies is an indication that Ryugu has undergone a complex evolutionary history. It is generally believed that small asteroids that are less than .6 miles (1 km), such as Ryugu, were created fairly recently in the solar system’s history (within several hundred million years) during the fragmentation of a larger parent body. Ryugu’s terrain will tell us about the division from the parent body and the asteroid’s subsequent evolution.

    Hayabusa 2 is the second asteroid sample-return mission by JAXA. The first, Hayabusa, was launched in 2003 and arrived at the asteroid Itokawa in 2005. Despite some problems, 1,500 grains of rock from the asteroid were successfully returned to Earth in June 2010. Hayabusa 2 is scheduled to return its samples back to Earth in 2020.

    Want more details? Check out Scott Manley’s video, below:

    Bottom line: We are now getting our first close-up look at a near-Earth asteroid called Ryugu, thanks to the Japanese spacecraft Hayabusa 2. Its “diamond” or “spinning top” shape might seem peculiar, but its shape is similar to that of another asteroid, Bennu, which will also receive its first earthly visitor, the U.S. spacecraft OSIRIS-REx, in 2020.

    The Pharaohs of Ancient Egypt Were ALIEN-HUMAN Hybrids

    Pharaohs of Ancient Egypt

    The pharaohs of historical Egypt might have been alien-human hybrids, based on a new strange conspiracy theory going around on the internet.

    Believers have created mocked-up images from the gods alongside extraterrestrials. This is to demonstrate how they might have been human beings along with elongated brains.

    Pyramids

    The reviews state that Egyptian stories date their own origins returning to the Zep Tepi. That explicates as the actual “first time”, a “golden age” whenever legend states gods originated from the atmosphere in eggs or vessels.

    The hypotheses advise that superior lifeforms transferred their information or came up with the monuments prior to civilisations surfaced.

    One conspiracy theory website assigns a whole area to the discussion that “aliens built the actual pyramids.” The early Egyptians could hardly have the knowledge of creating the pyramids.

    It takes the large leap through the mystery to state it must be aliens.

    The theory states: “The ones that they apparently built as a residence to the remains of lifeless pharaohs?

    “Everyone believed that ancient Egyptians built them! However, that is incorrect.

    “ALIENS built them!”

    “Let’s glimpse at some incontrovertible proof.”

    This states: “Here’s what truly happened: A few aliens, travelling high enough on the Earth in order to see the location where the Nile Delta’s origin is actually, easily noticed what direction the pyramid should be so as to have its diagonals lie upon those 2 lines.”

    “These aliens, rich in their expertise and with all that technology, arrived and taking advantage of their compasses. They got on Earth and located the actual North as well as South Poles. Then they constructed the pyramids.”

    The Sun, sets within the exact centre of the 2 pyramids.

    During the time, the Egyptians didn’t understand the precise duration of a year, or even when the summertime solstice.

    Pyramids

    It states aliens might, nevertheless, happen to be able to determine the lengthiest day in a year.

    Sunlight also goes up and remnants the head from the Sphinx within the winter solstice, the website highlights.

    The website says: “The extraterrestrials, with their variety of knowledge, came straight down in the year ten, 500 BC and constructed the Pyramids as well as the Sphinx.

    “They made it using a head of the lion to complement the Belt of Orion, and the groundation of Leo.

    The site indicates that in case humans could hardly have done this, then exceptional aliens probably were included.

    However, on the other hand, ancient aliens debunked. com is as similarly excited about evidence that people could have constructed the pyramids when historical past tells us these were constructed.

    Within an article concerning the pyramids, the site claims the alleged unfinished obelisk, is 1.000 tones. It is made out of granite. However, was forgotten midway due to the fact a split created.

    This said: “The stone, as it is not finished, provides us immediate insight into how they trim and formed granite, along with other stones.

    “Right after they shaped the stones, working with pounding stones, Egyptians would start to polish the stones with grinders.

    “There were various kinds of stone mills, or polishers, in historic Egypt.

    “Around 85% of the rock used in the development of the pyramids was fairly soft sandstone. It was quarried right on the spot.”

    Juno images Jupiter’s dreamy clouds à la Van Gogh

    This swirling pattern of color isn’t some long-lost Van Gogh oil painting — it’s Jupiter and its tumultuous vortices that dot the gas giant’s northern hemisphere.

    The picture was snapped by the Juno spacecraft on May 23, 2018, during the spacecraft’s 13th close flyby of Jupiter. At the time, Juno was about 9,600 miles from the planet’s cloud tops.

    Behold the dreamy beauty of Jupiter's clouds

    According to NASA, the darker clouds are found deeper in the Jovian planet’s atmosphere while the bright clouds are found higher up into the atmosphere. These bright clouds are likely made of ammonia or ammonia and water, mixed with some yet unknown chemical ingredients. The bright oval at the bottom center of the picture which resembles a cosmic eye appears uniformly white to ground-based telescopes. From very close, however, we can resolve fine-scale features within the weather system. Just like in the case of Jupiter’s Great Red Spot, winds probably slow down greatly toward the center, where there doesn’t seem to be that much motion compared to the exterior of the eye.

    Remarkably, the image was not processed by NASA. Citizen scientists Gerald Eichstädt and Seán Doran were responsible for the final image, who used data from the spacecraft’s JunoCam imager. Check out more pictures like this but also unprocessed data that anyone can use at the Juno Mission homepage.

    This month, Juno was supposed to reach the climax of its mission by diving into the gas giant. NASA, however, decided to offer a three-year extension to the mission which means more opportunities for both science and eye candy such as the view feature here. Juno’s end of prime operations is now expected in July 2021, with data analysis and mission close-out activities continuing into 2022.

    This is great news for planetary exploration as well as for the Juno team,” said Scott Bolton, principal investigator of Juno, from the Southwest Research Institute in San Antonio. “These updated plans for Juno will allow it to complete its primary science goals. As a bonus, the larger orbits allow us to further explore the far reaches of the Jovian magnetosphere — the region of space dominated by Jupiter’s magnetic field — including the far magnetotail, the southern magnetosphere, and the magnetospheric boundary region called the magnetopause.

    We have also found Jupiter’s radiation environment in this orbit to be less extreme than expected, which has been beneficial to not only our spacecraft, but our instruments and the continued quality of science data collected.

    What has NASA's Juno discovered around Jupiter so far?

    blue dune mars

    Neither of NASA’s two Mars-based rovers nor the Reconnaissance Orbiter has sent back any especially compelling photos of the Red Planet lately, thanks to a “planet-encircling” dust storm that’s made photography hard over the last couple of weeks. To remind us that, hey, there’s more to Mars than clouds of red dust, NASA recently released a stunning photo of an unexpectedly turquoise sand dune, shot in January. Alfred McEwen, Ph.D., one of the scientists who run the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment — HiRISE — camera that took this photo, explained to Inverse how this strange image came to be.

    Mars: Once in a Blue Dune

    The photo, posted by NASA on June 20, was taken by the HiRISE on the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter on January 24. It zooms in on the floor of Lyot Crater, where a bunch of regular sand dunes is overlaid by one huge blue sand dune, sprawling over the landscape like a giant turquoise slug. The smaller dunes are classic barchan dunes — the technical term for a crescent-shaped dune formed by gusts of wind. The big blue one, however, “appearing like turquoise blue in enhanced color, is made of finer material and/or has a different composition than the surrounding,” said NASA in a press releaseMcEwen, a planetary geologist and director of the Planetary Image Research Laboratory at the University of Arizona, explained the extent to which photo enhancement created the striking blue color in an email to Inverse.

    “The images are given min-max stretches in each individual color image to increase contrast,” he says. “The dunes are actually grey, but appear relatively blue after such a stretch because most of Mars is red.”

    mars turquoise dune

    The dune is grey, not blue, but it appears turquoise relative to the red hue that colors most of Mars.

    The reason HiRISE photos have to undergo so much editing is because, to the naked eye (or camera lens), the surface of Mars actually looks quite bland and blurry because all you really see from above is light reflecting off the dust in the atmosphere. Even the HiRISE, with its unprecedented resolution (it can image objects on Mars as small as three feet tall), can’t get around the dust. So, to see images in fine detail, the team has to turn up the contrast — which often leads to a dramatic shift in color. The photos below, of Mars’s Nili Patera region, shows what a difference some editing can make.

    viewing mars with the naked eye

    Images of the Nili Patera region of Mars -- a proposed landing site for future missions.

    In an article for the HiRISE website written in 2016, McEwan explained how the color enhancement process created the above photos.

    At the top is an apprximation of the natural color as seen by people with normal color vision—almost no surface detail is visible. In the middle is the standard HiRISE IRB color product, consisting of the infrared, red, and blue-green images displayed as red, green, and blue, respectively, and with a min-max stretch applied to each color. In other words, the darkest pixel in the entire image is set to black, the brightest pixel is set to white, and all others are linearly interpolated. At bottom is an enhanced color product, in which each bandpass is given a linear stretch for the local subimage, sometimes saturating a small percentage of data to black or white to give the rest of the scene more contrast, followed by color saturation enhancement. Now we can see a diversity of colors that distinguish different surface units: dust, sand, and rocks with different minerals.

    The same process produced the now-iconic blue dune, shown in a color-enhanced version below.

    The blue dune appears turquoise in the color-enhanced version of the image.

    In short, the blue dune isn’t actually blue, but if it wasn’t edited to look blue, it wouldn’t be nearly as impressive. Mars purists can rest assured: Its reputation as the Red Planet is intact for now.

    Camera detects high speed unknown object near Mars

    On June 24, 2018 a sky watcher while recording Mars in the SSW sky he noticed something else that was moving at a very high rate of speed.


    Despite that the object is probably at a distance from Mars, it is not likely that it would be a satellite since it moves too fast and it not follows a straight flight path like satellites do.

    If you look carefully at the unknown object it rotates and it changes colors too.

    Here's the scientific explanation for that 'alien spaceship' on Mars

    Mars has lengthy been everybody’s hands-down favourite within the seek for extraterrestrial lifestyles. It has got rocky landscapes, Nationwide Park-worthy canyons, and a basic look that resembles Arizona stripped of crops and comfort retail outlets.

    It is no marvel then that newbie explorers have spent years in entrance in their laptops scrutinizing this international for clues to lifestyles. The net footage they find out about — taken via a medley of rovers and orbiters — make up a wealthy corpus of images for those extremely motivated sleuths. However few of them are on the lookout for fungi or different back-burner biology. They hope to search out proof of suave beings that both visited Mars or have been as soon as Pink Planet natives.

    Crashed alien spacecraft?

    It is a beautiful and intriguing thought. Additionally it is not likely to pan out. Certainly, those homebody detectives simply suffered every other setback. In a paper printed lately within the “Magazine of Geophysical Analysis: Planets,” scientists at Johns Hopkins College be offering a easy reason behind the bizarre topography of an artifact that some mistook for a crashed alien spaceship. They are saying the purported spacecraft is if truth be told one thing just a geologist may love — the handiwork of historic volcanism, no longer Vulcans.

    The artifact is situated in a area of Mars referred to as the Medusae Fossae Formation. It is a strange-looking geologic deposit the dimensions of Alaska and Texas mixed. Additionally it is notable for the truth that radar alerts aimed its manner are simplest weakly mirrored, a “stealth” characteristic that some believe to be most likely unnatural. In the end, stealth airplane are engineered to be arduous to peer on radar. Had one thing or any person controlled to do the similar with the terrain of the Medusae Fossae?Image: Mars Geographical Map

    The Medusae Fossae Formation is one of the largest sedimentary deposits on Mars. This is an infrared image mosaic generated using Thermal Emission Imaging System (THEMIS) images from NASA’s Mars Odyssey orbiter mission; the small colored globe based on the Mars Orbiter Laser Altimeter (MOLA).

    The purported spaceship is huge in comparison to our personal rockets — concerning the measurement of the Notre Dame soccer stadium. Even so, it is just about misplaced within the corrugated expanse of the Medusae Fossae Formation. But when you’ll be able to in finding it, and if you happen to screw up your eyes, it looks as if a saucer-shaped craft that bungled its touchdown and slid into the Martian filth. Extraterrestrial passengers — assuming there have been any — both phoned house and have been rescued way back or disappeared into the adverse landscapes of the Pink Planet.

    Essential, if true. Certainly, it will be as nice a discovery as that of Columbus. However as soon as once more, the eyes and brains of people that wish to imagine that is visible proof for extraterrestrial beings have proven themselves to be at risk of deception. The evidence of that comes from the paintings of the Johns Hopkins researchers, who moderately decided the homes of the “touchdown website online.” They measured the common density of the fabric in Medusae Fossae, and it seems to be low — just one.7 occasions the density of water. That is light-weight in comparison to the common density of Earth’s crust, which is three.zero occasions that of water.

    No Klingon cloaking tool

    Conclusion? Medusae Fossae isn’t cast rock, however layers of particles — volcanic ash that was once spewed into the Martian skies way back. Its low radar reflectance isn’t some manifestation of Klingon cloaking generation however what you would be expecting from a pile of grainy, volcanic ejecta.

    What does this say concerning the saucer artifact? In keeping with Ross Beyer, a analysis scientist on the SETI Institute, the meant spacecraft is “only a hill.” It is some increased topography that was once swamped billions of years in the past via all that volcanic particles, he mentioned, a “lone small hill or knob that existed prior to the ash blanketed numerous actual property. This can be the top of a taller hill that was once buried, and there is also different hills on this area that weren’t as tall and are buried utterly, leaving simplest this one status above the particles.”

    In different phrases, similar to an iceberg, lots of the suspected saucer’s bulk is invisible — hidden via a sea of unfastened crud. It is ash, no longer a crash.

    However take a look at the intense aspect. You might want to know that Mars isn’t any such bad extraterrestrial vacation spot finally. In all probability we will have to alert the extraterrestrial beings that, somewhat than heading for New Mexico and a crack-up within the wilderness, they will have to steer as an alternative towards the fourth rock from the solar.

    And for me and my colleagues — sure, it will be transformational to search out evidence of extraterrestrials, and albeit, attempting to find artifacts is a technique to try this. Simply no longer this one!

    But, Seriously, Where Are the Aliens?

    Black-and-white illustration of a flying saucer

    BETTMANN / GETTY

    Enrico Fermi was an architect of the atomic bomb, a father of radioactivity research, and a Nobel Prize–winning scientist who contributed to breakthroughs in quantum mechanics and theoretical physics. But in the popular imagination, his name is most commonly associated with one simple, three-word question, originally meant as a throwaway joke to amuse a group of scientists discussing UFOs at the Los Alamos lab in 1950: Where is everybody?

    Fermi wasn’t the first person to ask a variant of this question about alien intelligence. But he owns it. The query is known around the world as the Fermi paradox. It’s typically summarized like this: If the universe is unfathomably large, the probability of intelligent alien life seems almost certain. But since the universe is also 14 billion years old, it would seem to afford plenty of time for these beings to make themselves known to humanity. So, well, where is everybody?

    In the seventh episode of Crazy/Genius, a new podcast from The Atlantic on tech, science, and culture, we put the question to several experts, including Ellen Stofan, the former chief scientist of nasa and current director of the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum; Adam Frank, a writer and astrophysicist at the University of Rochester; Anders Sandberg, a scientist and futurist at the University of Oxford; and Tim Urban, the science essayist at Wait But Why.

    Proposed solutions to Fermi’s Paradox fit into three broad categories.

    One: They’re nowhere—and no-when.

     Aliens don’t exist, and they never have. This scenario might have seemed more likely in the universe imagined by Aristotle and Ptolemy—a small assortment of celestial orbs spinning around a singular Earth. But that isn’t the universe anybody lives in. After searching the skies for Earthlike planets for centuries, cosmologists have, in the last two decades, broken open the cosmic piñata. Today they estimate as many as 500 billion billion sunlike stars, with 100 billion billion Earthlike planets. The more we learn about the universe, the more absurd it would seem if all but one of those bodies were bereft of life. To my mind, this is both the least likely answer to Fermi’s Paradox and the only one that fits all the evidence currently available to astrophysicists.

    Two: Life is out there—but intelligence isn’t. 

    Ellen Stofan predicts that we’ll find evidence of simple life on Mars or a faraway moon within the next 10 to 30 years. But she’s imagining something more like microbes or algae, not underwater cities in the liquid-methane lakes of Titan. This shifts the question from “Where is everybody?” to a more sophisticated query: What precisely is keeping an infinitude of dumb molecules from assembling to form an abundance of intelligent life?

    Think about all the factors that add up to the creation of a human. First the spark of life, followed by the creation of simple cells, then complex multicellular organisms, then the formation of organs like brains. If humanlike intelligence is rare, one of these steps must be quite insurmountable. For example, it’s notable that Earth has several million species of life, but only one has produced a civilization—that we know of. The relative silence of the universe suggests some kind of “Great Filter” that is restricting the creation of more intelligent beings. More ominously, some scientists think it’s possible that this Great Filter isn’t in our distant past, but rather in our future; so, it’s not that intelligent life is rare, but rather that it pops into existence for a few thousand years before getting wiped out of existence for mysterious reasons.

    Three: Intelligent life is abundant—but quiet. 

    This possibility, known as the zoo hypothesis, invites some of the strangest speculation. Maybe humanity is still so basic and primitive that advanced civilizations don’t think we’re worth talking to. Or maybe those other civilizations have learned that broadcasting their existence leads to extermination at the hands of violent, intergalactic colonizers. Or maybe our solar system just happens to be located in a quiet, exurban cul-de-sac of the universe, an accident of cosmic geography. But none of these theories hold a candle to my favorite conjecture of all: slumbering digital aliens. To understand why intelligent life might prefer to be based in a computer or cat-napping through the Anthropocene, check out the episode.

    «On dirait un ovni»: la chute d’un bolide lumineux filmée à Voronej

    Un bolide est passé au-dessus de plusieurs régions du centre-ouest russe, provoquant l’émoi de ses habitants qui partagent les images de l’évènement sur la Toile.

    Des habitants de la ville russe de Voronej (centre-ouest) ont eu la chance d’assister à la chute d’un astéroïde. Des vidéos du rare phénomène ont été diffusées sur le réseau social VKontakte:

    «Je pensais qu’il y aurait une onde de choc, comme à Tcheliabinsk, et j’ai commencé à filmer, mais il n’y a pas eu d’explosion», écrit un témoin oculaire.

    Un autre habitant avoue avoir cru qu’un ovni passait au-dessus de la ville:

    «On dirait un ovni, et j’ai eu peur. Ce truc était si lumineux», confie-t-il.

    La chute du corps céleste a été également observée dans les régions voisines de Lipetsk, Orel et Toula. Selon la chercheuse Liana Leonova de l’Université d’État de Voronej, il s’agirait d’un météore ou d’un débris spatial qui a brûlé dans l’atmosphère à l’approche de la Terre.

    «Il pourrait s’agir de tout ce que vous voulez: par exemple, d’un déchet spatial. Il est pourtant peu probable que ce soit une météorite d’origine naturelle», estime Mme Leonova.

    En février 2013, un météore d’un diamètre de 15 à 17 mètres et d’une masse estimée à entre 7.000 et 10.000 tonnes s’est fragmenté au-dessus de Tcheliabinsk (Oural du sud), créant une onde de choc qui a détruit des milliers de vitres et fait plus de 1.600 blessés dans la ville. Source

    An asteroid exploded over Russia this week

    Images and video of the daylight meteor seen over Russia on June 21. The small asteroid exploded in the air; fragments may have reached Earth. Plus … why are so many large meteors seen over Russia?

    A bright meteor was seen in near daylight on June 21, 2018, over several Russian cities, including Lipetsk, which is located southeast of Moscow. The fast fireball produced an amazing smoke trail that remained visible during several minutes. NASA’s fireball records indicate the event occurred on June 21 at 01:16:20 UTC. Sensors detected that the space rock produced an explosion equivalent to 2.8 kilotons. That explosion size corresponds to the disintegration of a small asteroid of about 13 feet (4 meters) in diameter. That size is in contrast to the estimated 65-foot (20-meter) asteroid that exploded in the air over Chelyabinsk, Russia, in February 2013.

    Infrasound sensor detectors registered the low frequencies produced by the explosion of the space rock as it entered Earth’s atmosphere. And some caught the meteor on dashboard cameras, as was the case, apparently, in the video at the top of this page by Alexander Dundin.

    Although intense friction with the air would have caused most of the space rock to disintegrate, it is possible that small fragments may have reached Earth’s surface.

    Location of Lipetsk, Russia, one of several cities over which the June 21 daylight meteor was seen.

    Why so many meteor events over Russia? Russia is the largest country in the world, thus its large territorial extension makes it the target with most probability for a space rock to hit, after the seas. About 70 percent of our planet’s surface is covered by water, which means that most meteorites do fall into the sea.

    Science centers and museums around the world will celebrate Asteroid Day on June 30, an event to create awareness and educate our communities about asteroids.

    Bottom line: Images and video of the 13-foot (4-meter) asteroid seen in near daylight on June 21, 2018, over various Russian cities. It exploded in the air, but some fragments may have reached the ground. Plus … why so many large meteors are seen over Russia.

    White House Releases Latest Plan to Save Earth from Asteroids

    Ok, let’s go ahead and get it out of the way: SPACE FORCE!

    Breaking: "NASA New Plan To Save Earth From Asteroids" Just Released

    Yes, 45th President of the United States Donald J. Trump announced this month the creation of the United States Space Force which pretty much already existed in the form of the Air Force Space Command and was almost universally opposed by military leadership, but hey, who cares? Yell it with me now while waving ol’ glory in front of a montage of exploding bald eagles: SPACE FORCE! SPACE FORCE! SPACE FORCE!

    World War III might be Space War I.

    “GET SOME, ASTEROIDS!”

    While the creation of the USSF (SPACE FOOOOOOOORCE!!) has been controversial and fodder for late-night comics the world over, it does highlight the fact that space is playing an increasingly important role in military operations. All of the major superpowers operate some form of space-based weaponry or ‘killer’ satellites, while US intelligence agencies have been warning for months now that like winter, war in space is coming. While these man-made spaceborne threats are indeed terrifying, the fact remains that the most pressing threats from outer space are the hundreds of thousands of potentially deadly near-Earth objects (NEOs) circling the solar system biding their time.

    Were pretty much surrounded.

    Were pretty much surrounded.

    NASA and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) have been conducting ‘wargame’ simulations over the last few years to test their preparedness ahead of any future asteroid impact events (Remember: it’s a question of when and where, not if). The result of those simulations is the White House’s latest National Near-Earth Object Preparedness Strategy and Action Plan released earlier this week. The 23-page documentoutlines how various agencies of the U.S. government plan to increase their preparedness over the next decade and develop strategies for both mitigating the risks of NEO impacts and planning what to do in the event of the inevitable next strike.

    The White House lists five main goals for the NEO plan: enhance NEO detection, tracking, and characterization capabilities; enhance NEO modeling, prediction, and information integration; develop technologies for NEO deflection and disruption missions; increase international cooperation for NEO preparation; and strengthen and routinely exercise NEO impact emergency procedures and action protocols. Not exactly light nighttime reading for those of us who know it could happen anywhere and at anytime

    Remember the Chelyabinsk meteor strike in 2013 that injured over 1,000 people? It was a total surprise.

    The document is mostly background information on NEOs and acronym-heavy bureaucratic language laying out which agencies will be tasked with which tasks (my favorite is “terrestrial migration”). Above all, the big takeaway is that NEOs are indeed a major threat, one for which we’re still terrifyingly unprepared despite the fact that we’ve known for decades or longer that the Earth bears the scars of past cataclysmic strikes.

    Not to worry, though: the Space Force will save us. SPACE FORCE! SPACE FORCE! SPACE FORCE!

    Massive Explosion of Unknown Origin Rips Through Neighboring Galaxy at ‘Incredible Speed’

    It’s always thoughtful of the universe to remind us that, despite our earthly problems and concerns that seem so very important, it can just end us, instantly in a flash of cosmic fire. Astronomers at the Keck Observatory, located on the dormant volcano Mauna Kea in Hawaii, have recently observed a massive explosion 100 times brighter than a supernova ripping through a neighboring galaxy—and they have no idea what caused it.

    The event—or object—is referred to as “The Cow,” which seems a distinctly boring name for a violent, galaxy destroying explosion of unknown origin. It was detected as far brighter than an average supernova, and moving at an anomalously fast speed. The team of astronomers working the ATLAS telescopeat the Keck Observatory reported the event in the Astronomer’s Telegram, where it sparked international curiosity and where the automated naming and cataloging system of the Telegram listed the report as “AT2018cow.” This is why we shouldn’t let computers name things.

    Cow

    “I am become death, destroyer of worlds.”

    While the brightness of the explosion is unusual, the speed at which it reached peak brightness is even more strange. Usually, large deep space explosions take weeks to reach their maximum brightness. The cow reached its peak brightness in two days. Scientists say that the explosion is made up of high-energy particles traveling at a rate of 12,000 miles per second and has a temperature of 16,000 degrees Fahrenheit. Speaking to New Scientist, Dr Kate McGuire of the ATLAS team, described the deep space explosion:

    “It really just appeared out of nowhere. There are other objects that have been discovered that are as fast, but the fastness and the brightness, that’s quite unusual. There hasn’t really been another object like this.”

    Initially, the explosion was thought to have occurred in our own galaxy. Due to the incredible brightness of the exploding cow, astronomers assumed that it was far closer than it actually is. A team of Chinese astronomers who trained their telescopes at the event calculated that “The Cow” is actually a whopping 200-million light years away, which would put it in a different galaxy entirely. So, if this thing keeps going, we’ll be alright for a good while. There’s a lot things you can do with 200 million years.

    Supernova

    The explosion is up to 100 times brighter than a supernova.

    Scientists don’t have any idea what caused this event, however. According to Dr McGuire:

    “We’re not sure yet what it is, but the normal powering mechanism for a supernova is radioactive decay of nickel, and this event is too bright and too fast for that.”

    The event currently has 18 telescopes from around the world pointed at it, which is the largest number of concurrent observations of any celestial event reported to the Astronomer’s Telegram, according to the site’s editor-in-chief. Scientists say that they should have more information about the cosmic cow in the next few days. If you never hear about it again, that’s probably the time to start worrying.

    I found this UFO in an old Shuttle Atlantis video on a NASA website today. The UFO is white and triangle shaped, following the dropped rocket that helped the shuttle take off. 


    If you remember the Shuttle Atlantis, you will also remember how CNN aired news declaring a UFO was preventing the Shuttle Atlantis from landing on time, and it was delayed in orbit being followed by several small objects. Here is one of those objects close up.

    The person left his home in the UK to smoke a cigarette and to his astonishment he saw this ship partially hidden in the clouds. The UFO had a very sharp edge going around it, but the front and back were hidden by the clouds around it.

    Remember, the easiest way to hide and observe humans is to fly a UFO low to the ground where you can observe them below.
