Scientists have found an Alien code in our DNA: Ancient Engineers

Researchers who worked for 13 years in the Human Genome Project indicate that they came across an amazing scientific discovery: They believe that the so-called 97% of non-coding sequences in the human DNA is nothing less than the genetic code of extraterrestrial life forms. Originally referred to as “Junk DNA” its function remained a mystery for researchers. Now researchers believe that our DNA is extraterrestrial in origin.

After extensive analysis with the help of other researchers in diverse fields such as mathematics, chemistry and programming, Maxim A. Makukov of the Fesenkov Astrophysical Institute have ventured out and asked if there is a possibility that, what we call “junk DNA” is actually some sort of extraterrestrial code, created by an “Alien” programmer.

According to researchers from Kazakhstan, “Our hypothesis is that a more advanced extraterrestrial civilization was engaged in creating new life and planting it on various planets. Earth is just one of them.”
The researchers indicate that “What we see in our DNA is a program consisting of two versions, a giant structured code, and a simple or basic code.”

The team of researchers believes for a fact that the first part of our DNA code was not written on Earth and according to them it is verifiable. Secondly and most importantly, genes alone are not enough to explain the evolution/abrupt evolution process and there must be something more in ‘the game’.

According to Makukov “Sooner or later,” “we have to accept the fact that all life on Earth carries the genetic code of our extraterrestrial cousins and that evolution is not what we think it is.”

The implications of these scientific findings reinforce claims by other individuals and observers that claim to have had contact with aliens that look like humans. Human-like aliens could have provided some of the genetic material necessary for human evolution.

Quote from News.Discovery: This interpretation leads them to a farfetched conclusion: that the genetic code, “appears that it was invented outside the solar system already several billions years ago.” This statement endorses the idea of panspermia, the hypothesis that Earth was seeded with interstellar life. It’s certainly a novel and bold approach to galaxy conquest if we imagine this was a deliberate Johnny Appleseed endeavor by super-beings

Researchers in Kazakhstan believe that the human DNA was encoded with an alien signal for an ancient extraterrestrial civilization, and they refer to it as “Biological SETI”. The mathematical code in the human DNA cannot be explained by evolution. Basically, we are living and breathing holders of some sort of alien message that can be used, in a much more efficient way than using Radio-signals, to search for Extraterrestrial life.

Once the code had been set, it would remain unchanged in cosmological time-scales, in fact, researchers believe that our DNA is the most durable “construction” known, and that is why it represents an exceptionally reliable and intelligent storage for an alien signature, according to an article in the journal Icaurs.

Writing in the journal Icarus, they assert: “Once fixed, the code might stay unchanged over cosmological timescales; in fact, it is the most durable construct known. Therefore it represents an exceptionally reliable storage for an intelligent signature. Once the genome is appropriately rewritten the new code with a signature will stay frozen in the cell and its progeny, which might then be delivered through space and time.”

Scientists believe that the human DNA is arranged in such a precise way that it reveals a “set of arithmetic patterns and ideographic symbolic language”. These studies have led scientists to believe that we were literally invented “outside of Earth” several billions of years ago.

These ideas or beliefs are anything but accepted in the scientific community. Yet these studies have proven what some researchers have talked about for decades, that evolution could not have happened on its own, and that there is something extraterrestrial to our entire species. Is our entire history wrong?

One mystery that would remain as THE GREAT QUESTION is, if extraterrestrial beings did, in fact, create the human race and life on planet Earth, then “who” or “what” created these extraterrestrial beings?

2020 Mars Helicopter Could Open Alien Skies to Exploration | Space

A few brief hops in the Martian air two years from now could help open alien worlds to an entirely new kind of exploration.

An autonomous mini-helicopter will fly with NASA’s Mars 2020 rover mission, which is scheduled to launch in July of that year and land on the Red Planet in February 2021. 

The bantam chopper is a stripped-down technology demonstration, and it will make a maximum of five short sorties in the Martian atmosphere. Success in this pioneering work would be a big deal, extending the reach of humanity’s robotic explorers, which are currently restricted to the surfaces of alien worlds or the dark realms far above them.

“We envision helicopters opening doors to new types of exploration on Mars,” Håvard Grip, flight-control and aerodynamics lead for the Mars Helicopter, said Wednesday (March 20) during a presentation with NASA’s Future In-Space Operations (FISO) working group.

One day, more-advanced versions could serve as scouts for rovers or explore the Red Planet on their own, added Grip, who’s based at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory and the California Institute of Technology, which are both in Pasadena. 

“In the future, we could imagine doing things like [engaging in] regional exploration using multiple helicopters or going to inaccessible areas or biologically sensitive areas using small helicopters,” he said.

The Mars Helicopter weighs 4 lbs. (1.8 kilograms) and has a body about the size of a softball. It carries a range of avionics and communications gear, a small solar panel, rechargeable lithium-ion batteries, “survival heaters” to keep its electronics warm through the frigid Martian night, and a navigation camera.

The helicopter doesn’t have any science instruments, but it is outfitted with a high-resolution color imager.

“That’s, so to speak, the payload,” Grip said. “That’s what we [use to] take pretty pictures and send them back to Earth.”

The helicopter will travel to Mars attached to the belly of the car-size 2020 rover, which will hunt for signs of ancient Red Planet life and collect and store samples to return to Earth in the future, among other tasks. 

A month or two after the rover lands on the Red Planet, the chopper will drop down and hit the dirt itself. The little vehicle will then make a series of short flights, each of which will last about 90 seconds and reach a maximum altitude of 16.5 feet (5 meters) or so, Grip said.

These sorties will be made between 330 feet and 3,300 feet (100 to 1,000 m) away from the rover — far enough away to pose no collision danger, but close enough to be in communications range. (The helicopter will talk to its handlers on Earth via the rover.)

Success would be quite an achievement, considering that the Martian atmosphere is just 1 percent as dense as that of Earth at sea level. Cruising just above the Martian surface is equivalent to flying at an altitude of 100,000 feet (30,000 m) here on Earth, more than twice as high as any helicopter has ever gotten. (The handicap imposed by the thin air is only partially offset by the Red Planet’s lower gravity, which is 38 percent that of Earth, Grip said.)

To generate enough lift, the Mars Helicopter sports two stiff rotors that measure 3.9 feet (1.2 m) long — pretty much as big as the team could make them, Grip said. And the rotors will spin at 2,400 revolutions per minute, about 10 times faster than the blades of a chopper on Earth, mission team members have said.

The team has put this design through its paces many times in Mars-like conditions here on Earth, Grip said. Indeed, the little craft is pretty much ready to go.

“The flight model is built and more or less tested,” Grip said.

The ultimate test, of course, will come on Mars.

“The Mars Helicopter’s initial flight will represent that planet’s version of the Wright brothers’ achievement at Kitty Hawk and the opening of a new era,” Susan Gorton, manager of NASA’s Revolutionary Vertical Lift Technology project, which has been working with the Mars Helicopter team, said in a statement last week. 

“For those of us whose research revolves around all things related to flight, that would be a remarkable, historic moment,” Gorton added.

Such historic moments may not be limited to Mars’ skies. NASA is considering launching a quadcopter lander to Titan, Saturn’s huge, haze-enshrouded moon. This mission, called Dragonfly, would fly from spot to spot on Titan, investigating the complex chemistry occurring on the potentially life-supporting moon.

Dragonfly is one of two finalists for a mid-2020s launch slot under NASA’s New Frontiers program of medium-cost missions. The other contender is a comet sample-return mission called CAESAR. NASA is expected to announce its selection later this year.

The Mars Helicopter and Dragonfly teams have not collaborated to date, Grip said.

Study claims ancient alien civilizations may have existed

In brief, researchers explained that “…other intelligent, technology producing species is very likely to have evolved before us.” Scientists suggest that even one chance in a trillion indicates that our civilization on Earth has happened around 10 billion other times over cosmic history.

The million dollar question when it comes to aliens is of course: Is there life other than ours existing in the vast universe? This question leads to numerous other sub-questions like, if there is life elsewhere, how long have these alien civilizations existed, and can they communicate with us?

For Centuries, people have wondered and imagined whether or not there is life beyond planet Earth.

Giordano Bruno an Italian Dominican friar, philosopher, mathematician, poet, and cosmological theorist proposed that the stars were just distant suns surrounded by their own exoplanets and raised the possibility that these planets could even foster life of their own. Furthermore, he also insisted that the universe is in fact infinite and could have no celestial body at its “center”.

In 1593, Bruno was tried for heresy by the Roman Inquisition on charges including denial of several core Catholic doctrines, including eternal damnation, the Trinity, the divinity of Christ, the virginity of Mary, and transubstantiation.

Bruno’s pantheism was also a matter of grave concern.

The Inquisition found him guilty, and he was burned at the stake in Rome’s Campo de’ Fiori in 1600.

The Drake equation, proposed by astronomer Frank Drake in 1961 tackles the most important questions regarding alien life and addresses the outlines and variables that are needed for a technologically superior civilization out there to communicate up with us. We’d all probably agree that crop circles aren’t the best option, right?

A study, published in the journal Astrobiology indicates that with the sheer number of alien planets that have been discovered in recent years, it’s time to look at things from a different perspective, simplifying the equation proposed by Drake.

The study has shown that alien civilizations were vast although likely extinct, but which could hold clues as to how humans could extend our civilization.

Researcher and University of Rochester professor Adam Frank said that while we already have for a long time estimated how many stars exist, what is uncertain is how many of those had planets potentially harboring life.

Likelihood of ADVANCED ALIEN life arising on a planet

Interestingly, Adam Frank and his co-author Woodruff Sullivan of the University of Washington imagined space where mankind on Earth is the only surviving civilization out there. They applied this to the number of stars, they obtained a probability of one in 10 billion trillions, or just one in 60 billion if in the Milky Way alone.

“Other intelligent, technology producing species is very likely to have evolved before us,” researchers explained, suggesting that even one chance in a trillion indicates that our civilization on Earth has happened around 10 billion other times over cosmic history.

This means that unless a civilization lasts longer than Earth’s –approximate 10,000-year-old civ— over the 13-billion-year existence of the universe, others have likely become extinct.

CIA document states “Russian soldiers were turned to stone” after Alien attack

According to a declassified CIA report, a troop of Russian soldiers—who managed to shoot down a UFO—were turned into STONE by surviving aliens. The declassified report is available at the official website of the CIA.

Yup, and it’s not an excerpt from an upcoming James Cameron science fiction movie. Although James might consider it.

Ok so I know there are those who will certainly yell out fake, and for them, the link to the official document is here.

Weird huh? Image credit

According to a set of documents provided by the CIA, Russian soldiers gunned down an Unidentified Flying Object. After the craft crash landed, its occupants—of otherworldly origin—confronted the military resulting in human soldiers turning into stone.

The declassified set of documents states how 23 Russian soldiers were ‘killed’ by as many as FIVE extraterrestrial beings after an alien encounter after soldiers gunned down the ET craft.

The declassified documents, now freely available at the official website of the CIA, is in fact a translation of a Ukrainian newspaper that wrote about the incident.

The newspaper report composed from a 250-page KGB dossier on the alleged UFO attack includes images and witness testimonies, according to the Daily Express.

The UFO is said to have appeared during military unit training in Siberia. The Alien craft was shot down using a surface-to-air missile.

The declassified report states how: “Five short humanoids with large heads and large black eyes got out.”

2 soldiers are believed to have survived the attack.

As weird as it sounds, the report states how after the UFO was shot down, five ‘otherworldly beings’ emerged from the crashed UFO. The beings merged in what was described as a massive ball of light which eventually exploded, turning 23 Russian soldiers into stone.

The declassified document states:

The KGB report goes on to say that the remains of the ‘petrified soldiers’ were transferred to a secret research institution near Moscow.

“Specialists assume that a source of energy still unknown to Earthlings instantly changed the structure of the soldiers living organisms, having transformed it into a substance whose molecular structure was no different to limestone.”

At the end of the report, a CIA agent wrote: “If the KGB file corresponds to reality, this is an extremely menacing case.”

“The aliens possess such weapons and technology that go beyond all our assumptions.”

And while there are certainly many red flags surrounding the report, one of the biggest mysteries is why the CIA held a translation of the Ukrainian newspaper report on file.

It seems that the document—although available on the CIA website—first appeared in declassified KGB files.

Interestingly, a man named Philip Schneider, who worked as an explosive engineer contracted by the U.S. government, with high-level security clearance claimed how in 1979—when he was working on the construction of a secret underground base in New Mexico—he witnessed a horrible battled between aliens and humans that resulted in 60 dead soldiers, and countless subterranean aliens fighting for their life.

Mysterious UFO has been spotted hovering over the Alien Hotspot Wright-Patterson Air Force Base

A strange and mysterious unidentified flying object hovered over the well known alien hot-spot known as the Wright-Patterson Air Force base, located in Ohio. The UFO hunters have not only seen it, but released a video about the incident.

Strange and bizarre footage has been uploaded to YouTube. Within the clip, there are reports displaying a dark UFO hovering in the cloudy skies just over the United States military base. And yes, it has gone completely viral all over the Internet.

The footage in the film below was filmed Wednesday, May 25th. A couple, who happened to be watching the sunset from the comfort of their own home, and according to the ‘professional UFO YouTube hunters’ known as “Secureteam10,” uploaded  the clip on May 28th, 2016.

The SecureTeam10, one of the biggest UFO conspiracy theory YouTube channels, has described themselves as “the research team bringing exposure of the alien phenomenon and those trying to hide it back to the masses.”

The Wright-Patterson Air Force base, is indeed considered that of a UFO hot spot, mostly due to the long history of sightings reported, dating as far back as the Second World War.

Other conspiracy theorists have actually claimed that the local base did in fact possess a top-secret alien tech storage hanger labeled “Hanger 18,” which was off limits to the general public, so much so that not even Senator Barry Goldwater, who holds a top-security clearance, was not allowed to enter.

We can see other conspiracy theorists allege that this so called “above-top-secret” facility had also, at the time, held several alien corpses.

This alleged ‘fact’ follows the UFO crash in Roswell,1947. The story suggests badly burned remains of unknown alien astronauts salvaged from a mangled UFO; then moved by flatbed truck to the popular Area 51 facility, located in Nevada. The conspiracy theorists have claimed that these aliens, in which are described as small beings possessing large heads and gray tinted skin, had supposedly been flown to Hanger 18 for more postmortem analyses’, as well as scientific studies.

Open Minds TV had reported back in July 2014, that a related grandchild of a specific woman that had happened to reside at Dayton, Ohio, had come forward with a full testimony. This case was filed as “Case 58327,” which remains in the archives of the many Mutual UFO Network (MUFON). The testimony states that her grandmother had indeed confirmed that a senior ranking official located at the base of the crashed UFO, did possess these alien bodies recovered from the famous Roswell crash, to be stored at the Ohio military base.

The witness also stated that her grandmother had obtained the secret information back in 1960 from a close friend, which happened to have been a high-ranking officer working at the base. Her friend had retired from the base shortly afterwards. “A close friend retired from Wright Patterson Air Force base, he was high ranking. My grandmother asked him it if were true about the alien craft and possibly the alien bodies being stored at the base” said the witness.

If the public knew what was at the base from the Roswell incident, there would be a general panic amongst the public,” was the official alleged response.

A study of UFO Phenomenon that was conducted from 1952 onto 1969, revealed that the top-secret Wright-Patterson Air Force Base had recorded more than 12,500 strange aerial sightings between the years of 1947 and 1969.

The exact details of this Project Blue Book program had finally arrived to the general public in 2015; over 100,000 pages of documentation related to the project had been released following a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request.

The UFO with the latest alleged sighting that had been reported by the SecureTeam10, has an oddly shaped and very sharp pointed lower end. Strange markings line its sides. It hovers in the air for several minutes.

The women that had filmed this bizarre footage with her cellphone, appears to be in shock.

You can clearly hear the woman stating in the footage, “What the f**k is that?” She continues to add “It looks like it is moving with the clouds.” She continues by stating “That’s f**king crazy.”

As she tries to zoom in on the camera for a closer view of the floating object, the UFO appears to sense that it was being observed. It suddenly moves and proceeds to hide behind the thick clouds, doing nothing more than conjuring more expletives from the several viewers from down below.

The woman screams “Oh my God, it f**king disappeared.”

The SecureTeam10, with narrator Tyler Glockner, had described the footage as “mind-blowing.” He also claims that the “three separate” witnesses had also filmed the exact same UFO, and oddly enough, at the exact same location just before the latest sighting. Thus, providing a corroborating of the testimony from the latest witnesses.

It’s the same UFO. I am simply amazed; we have someone corroborating this sighting,” Glocker says, “There is no doubt in my mind this is either an alien craft or a very, very strange drone – which I highly doubt.”

He also goes on to suggest that it could be a top-secret USAF Black Project craft, which is being reverse-engineered from strange alien technology.

Glockner’s speculations on the video did in fact spark some online discussion, mostly with loyal and faithful followers of his channel agreeing, as they usually do, that the revealed footage does likely provide details of an unknown alien aircraft and that it does provide the viewers with evidence of a government attempting to cover up some sort of evidence of alien visitations to planet Earth.

This is the best footage and something is about to go down,” stated a fan enthused by the video clip. “Did you see the face as the camera zoomed in? Oh man…The government is not your friend.” He continues.

The video belo “Alien Saucer UFO jumps Dimensions over Military Base” below is of another source of this incident.

Other fans of the YouTube channel had spotted other UFO’s within the footage that the SecureTeam10 had “missed.”

They are coming everyday more and more! They have already been here forever but more aliens are coming every day!” Stated a fan in excitement.

While a few of the Christian-based fans declared that the UFO’s were that of demons and had warned UFO hunters to “place their faith in Christ” rather than in that of aliens.

However, both critics of the SecureTeam10 have, alleged that the newest leaked footage from this remarkable prolific UFO hunter is that of a fake. A very skeptic person commented “video editing and bad acting”

New Paper Describes How We Could Detect Alien Spacecraft Powered by Black Holes

In the course of looking for possible signs of Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence (ETI), scientists have had to do some really outside-of-the-box thinking.

Since it is a foregone conclusion that many ETIs would be older and more technologically advanced than humanity, those engaged in the Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence (SETI) have to consider what a more advanced species would be doing.

A particularly radical idea that has been suggested is that spacefaring civilizations could harness radiation emitted from black holes (Hawking radiation) to generate power.

Building on this, Louis Crane – a mathematician from Kansas State University (KSU) – recently authored a study that suggests how surveys using gamma telescopes could find evidence of spacecraft powered by tiny artificial black holes.

The study, “Searching for Extraterrestrial Civilizations Using gamma Ray Telescopes“, recently appeared online. This is the second paper published by Dr. Crane on the subject, the first of which was co-authored by Shawn Westmoreland (a physics grad student with KSU) and published in 2009 – titled “Are Black Hole Spacecraft Possible?”.

In the first paper, Crane and Westmoreland explored the possibility of using Hawking radiation from an artificial black hole. They concluded that it was at the edge of possibility, but that quantum gravity effects (which are currently unknown) could be an issue.

In her most recent paper, Crane took things a step further by describing how the resulting gamma-rays such a system would produce could aid in the search for ETIs.

The concept of a black hole-powered spacecraft was first introduced by famed science fiction author Arthur C. Clarke in this 1975 novel, Imperial Earth. A similar idea was presented by Charles Sheffield in his 1978 short story, “Killing Vector”.

In both cases, Clarke and Sheffield describe how advanced civilizations could extract energy from rotating black holes to meet their energy needs.

Aside from being pure science-fiction gold, the ability to harness a black hole to generate power would offer some pretty hefty advantages. As Dr. Crane described to Universe Today via email:

“An advanced civilization would want to harness a microscopic black hole because it could throw in matter and get out energy. It would be the ultimate energy source. In particular it could propel a starship large enough to be shielded to relativistic velocities.

None of the starship concepts NASA studied turned out to be viable… It might be the only possibility.”

In addition, the signatures associated with this sort of technological activity (aka. “technosignatures”) would indicate a very high level of advancement. Given the sheer energy requirements for creating an artificial black hole, plus the technical challenges associated with harnessing it, the process would be beyond anything less than a Type II civilization on the Kardashev Scale.

“To produce an artificial black hole we would need to focus a billion ton gamma ray laser to nuclear dimensions,” said Dr. Crane.

“It’s like making as many high tech nuclear bombs as there are automobiles on Earth. Just the scale of it is beyond the current world economy. A civilization which fully utilized the Solar System would have the resources.”

That’s not even the least of the technical challenges, most of which well are beyond what humanity is capable of. These include the sheer amount of power it would take to power the gamma-ray laser, where this energy would be stored, and how these emissions would be focused onto an atomic-sized space.

As Crane indicated, there are suggestions for how this could be done, but they remain highly speculative.

Aside from the concept itself, the idea of a black hole-powered civilization is also interesting because of the possibilities that it presents for SETI research.

As with other signs of technological activity (a.k.a. “technosignatures”), a civilization harnessing tiny, artificial black holes created with gamma ray lasers could be detectable thanks to a little thing known as “spill-over”.

This concept was described by Prof. Philip Lubin in a 2016 study, where he suggested that evidence of ETIs could be found by searching for signs of directed energy.

Consistent with Lubin’s own research involving lasers for planetary defense and laser propulsion (for NASA and as part of Breakthrough Starshot) Lubin suggested that errant flashes of laser energy (aka. “spill-over”) could indicate a technologically-advanced civilization.

In the same way, SETI researchers could rely on gamma-ray telescopes to search for signs of spill-over from gamma ray lasers. As Dr. Crane put it:

“If some advanced civilization already had such starships, current VHE gamma ray telescopes could detect it out to 100 to 1000 light years if we were in its beam.. They could be distinguished from natural sources by their steadily changing redshift over a period of years to decades. To investigate this astronomers would need to keep time series of frequency curves of the point-like gamma ray sources. This does not seem to be something they currently do.”

What is perhaps most exciting though is the fact that astronomers may have already found signs of some Type II Kardashev civilizations that use this type of method for energy production.

As Dr. Crane explained, several point-like gamma ray sources have been detected in our Universe for which no natural explanation has been given.

Future observations using space-based telescopes like the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope (FGST), and ground-based facilities like the High Energy Stereoscopic System (HESS) and the Very Energetic Radiation Imaging Telescope Array System (VERITAS), could help determine if these sources could actually be artificial in nature.

Coupled with next-generation instruments that have greater resolution and imaging capabilities, gamma-ray laser spill-over and other potential technosignatures could be out there, just waiting to be identified.

In the meantime, humanity still has a LONG way to go before it can begin to contemplate building this kind of technology.

Much like Dyson Spheres, Alderson Disks, Space Elevators, and the ability to move stars, this kind of Type II megaproject is just going to have to wait humanity can tackle a few smaller challenges. Something more our speed, like finding ways to settle on other planets in our Solar System, or learning how to use Earth’s resources sustainably!

Marijuana Contains “Alien DNA” From Outside Of Our Solar System, NASA Confirms – Blindfold

It is a big news, set to shock, amaze, and entertain the world. But unfortunately, it’s got nothing to do with extraterrestrial stoners melding with Earth’s plants. However, since you’re now reading, you’ll almost certainly be interested in this research that looked into the clicking and sharing behaviors of social media users reading content (or not) and then sharing it on social media.

We here at IFLS noticed long ago that many of our followers will happily like, share and offer an opinion on an article – all without ever reading it. We’re not the only ones to notice this. NPR shared an article on their Facebook page which asked “Why doesn’t America read anymore?” The joke, of course, is that there was no article. They waited to see if their followers would weigh in with an opinion without clicking the link, and they weren’t disappointed.

We’ve been hoping for a chance to try it ourselves, and this seemed like the perfect opportunity. Yackler had some fun with the same article and managed to fool a bunch of people. A group of computer scientists into a dataset of over 2.8 million online news articles that were shared via Twitter.

The study found that up to 59 percent of links shared on Twitter have never actually been clicked by that person’s followers, suggesting that social media users are more into sharing content than actually clicking on and reading it.

“People are more willing to share an article than read it,” the study’s co-author Arnaud Legout said in a statement, Washington Post reports. “This is typical of modern information consumption. People form an opinion based on a summary, or a summary of summaries, without making the effort to go deeper.”

This study looks into the psychology behind what makes people want to share content. Research conducted by The New York looked into what motivates people to share information. Just under half of the people asked in the survey said they share information on social media to inform people and to “enrich” those around them.

Conversely, they found 68 percent share to reinforce and project a certain image of themselves – in a sense, to “define” themselves. In the words of one participant from the study: “I try to share only information that will reinforce the image I’d like to present: thoughtful, reasoned, kind, interested and passionate about certain things.”

It also raises the question of whether online media is just a massive “echo chamber”, where we all just like pages and viewpoints that reinforce our own beliefs and are not interested in information for the sake of information. Even the algorithms of social media sites mean that individuals or pages that you tend to click on, like, or share – which are most often the articles or viewpoints that you agree with – will more frequently turn up on your News Feed.

As a user of online media, you’re probably quite aware of this. Take a look at any comment on social media pages, including those, of course, on the Sci-Tech Universe Facebook page. It’s particularly noticeable on the more “emotive” and controversial of subjects; think climate change, GMOs, vaccinations, aliens, and a lot of our articles on marijuana, where the top comments often repeat or question something that is fairly explicitly in the article, but not the headline.

Just this week, our article about capuchins monkeys entering the stone age was met with many of the top comments on the Facebook post pointing out they’ve done this for hundreds of years, despite that being the first thing the article said if you read it. 

Although from our analytics it’s impossible to see which users did not click through to the article yet shared it, there is fairly often a slightly fine discrepancy between shares and page views which doesn’t quite add up, especially on those buzz subjects.

So, if you are one of the lucky few who managed to click and read this article, we congratulate you! Although we do apologize for the misleading headline. In the meanwhile, have fun sharing the article and seeing who manages to chair a discussion on marijuana genetics, without ever reading it.

The Roswell Rock: A lost alien map? | Ancient Code

The curious object known as the Roswell Rock was found near the Roswell crash site in New Mexico. The rock displays a curious pattern together with magnetic anomalies: when magnetic influence is placed over the thickest part of the Roswell rock, the object turns counter clockwise. However, when placed above the lower crescent and circle, the thinnest part of the rock, the object reverses and turns clockwise.

An enigmatic object—found near the alleged Roswell alien crashsite—called the Roswell Rock has created confusion among those who have studied it. Said to possess mysterious properties, many believe the curious artifact—discovered in 2004—belonged to an alien race that visited Earth.

On September 4, 2004, a man named Robert Ridge went out hunting. During the day, as he explored the territory near the Roswell crash site he came across a curious object protruding from the ground, with a curious pattern embedded on its surface.

After picking up the artifact and cleaning it, he noticed a set of patterns and symbols on its surface that immediately caught his attention.

The Roswell rock has a curious symbolism: Two crescent moons joined at the corners, a pattern eerily similar to those that tend to appear on Crop Circles.

The design of the Roswell rock is fascinating. Anyone who has had a chance to see it will notice that it seems as if it had been crafted with incredible precision. According to Mr. Ridge, the Roswell rock is evidence of perfect machinery.

Interestingly, the design depicted ontop of the Roswell Rocked perfectly matches with Crop Circles that appeared in Liddington, England on August 2, 1996.

This, together with the fact that the mystery artifact was discovered in extreme proximity of the alleged Roswell Crash site.

So what is it?

The Roswell Rock could be two things. Either it is in fact an alien artifact that was ‘left behind’ by Alien visitors, even possibly those ‘little green guys’ who managed to travel across the universe and then crash near a farm in Roswell, or it is a very intricate forgery.

In order to find out what the object really is, Ridge contacted two ufologists, Chuck Zukowski and Debbie Ziegelmeyer, at the 2007 Roswell UFO festival.

Chuck and Debbie were trying to find out over the next year if it could be a souvenir from one of the stands at Roswell.

They noticed that the color of the rock was the same as that of the carved surface, so they assumed that it was not a recent work.

In addition, after studying the artifact under the microscope, researchers could not see the marks of the tool that was used to make the engraving. Curious right?

What kind of tool was used to make the engravings but did not leave any marks behind?

Anyway, as they dug deeper and investigated the mystery rock further, experts found that the Roswell rock had magnetic properties, it attracts the needle of a compass, and rotates in the presence of a magnet. Hmm…

Comparing the Roswell rock to the crop circle found in Liddington, England you’ll notice that even though they may seem identical, they are not.

Many believe that the engraving on the Roswell Rock depicts the existence of parallel universes, offering clues about portals and wormholes that we are yet to find.

That, of course, varies from person to person. For me, it just looks like a really cool rock with weird magnetic properties.

Anyway, researchers found that the Roswell rock has a strong magnetic attraction, narrowed down to the presence of magnetite. Furthermore, an energy dispersive fluorescence spectrometer, or (EDXRF), confirmed the presence of this strange iron material.

Strangely, when magnetic influence is placed over the thickest part of the Roswell rock, the object turns counter clockwise.

However, when placed above the lower crescent and circle, the thinnest part of the rock, the object reverses and turns clockwise.

Many have concluded that these strange properties have something to do with magnetism, free energy, and portals waiting to be opened here on Earth. Others believe that the curious patterns, and magnetic properties are just some of the curious characteristics of the Roswell rock and that it has still many secrets to give up. Is it a cosmic map?

The Black Knight, A 13000 Year Old Alien Satellite?

The Black Knight Satellite, a 13,000-year-old Alien Satellite?

Space Junk or alien “Satellite”, the black knight as it’s called today– has been around for quite some time now. It has been identified as an Alien Satellite and even though there are images of this object, many remain skeptical about its purpose and origin.

The discovery of the Black Knight Satellite is perhaps one of the most (in)famous space objects to orbit our Planet. This “Artificial Satellite” has caused major media interest since the late 50’s, and it has become one of the most talked about objects in space. First thought to be a Russian spy satellite, the Black Knight has gripped the interest of millions worldwide.

According to monitoring agencies around the world, The Black knight has been transmitting radio signals for over 50 years now.

The USA and Soviet Union have shown particular interest in this “unidentified space object”. Since its discovery this satellite has interested countries such as Sweden and enthusiasts worldwide. One of them is a Ham Radio operator who apparently had decoded a series of signals received from the UFO Satellite and interpreted it as a star-chart centered on the Epsilon Bootes Star System and that the Black Knight  originated from this System 13.000 years ago. (The Epsilon Boötis is a double star in the northern constellation of Boötes. It has the traditional names Izar and Pulcherrima. The star system can be viewed with the unaided eye at night, but resolving the pair with a small telescope is challenging; an aperture of 76 mm (3.0 in) or greater is required. — Wikipedia)

But according to many, this discovery was made much earlier than we thought. Rumors are that it was Nikola Tesla the first man to “intercept” a signal from this otherworldly satellite in 1899 after building a high-voltage radio device in Colorado Springs. After Tesla’s discovery in the next 30 to 50 years the signal was being intercepted more frequently until it was apparently “decoded”. Since the 1930’s Astronomers worldwide have been reporting strange radio signals which allegedly come from the “Black Knight”.

In 1957, Dr. Luis Corralos of the Communications Ministry in Venezuela photographed it while taking pictures of Sputnik II as it passed over Caracas. The strange thing was that unlike the Sputnik one and two, The Black Knight Satellite orbited Earth from East to West. Sputnik one and two orbited West to East using Earth’s natural rotation to maintain orbit.

The story of the Black Knight made its media debut in the 1940’s when the St. Louis Dispatch and The San Francisco Examiner wrote about the “Satellite” on May 14th, 1954. The Time Magazine wrote about it on the seventh of March, 1960. Here is what they said about it.

Three weeks ago, headlines announced that the U.S. had detected a mysterious “dark” satellite wheeling overhead on a regular orbit. There was nervous speculation that it might be a surveillance satellite launched by the Russians, and it brought the uneasy sensation that the U.S. did not know what was going on over its own head. But last week the Department of Defense proudly announced that the satellite had been identified. It was a space derelict, the remains of an Air Force Discoverer satellite that had gone astray. Read the complete story by visiting the Time Magazine website.

The Articles of 1954:

On August 23, 1954, the technology magazine Aviation Week and Space Technology released a story that angered the Pentagon, who were trying to keep the information secret. The short article stated:

Pentagon scare over the observance of two previously unobserved satellites orbiting the earth has dissipated with the identification of the objects as natural, not artificial satellites. Dr. Lincoln LaPaz, expert on extraterrestrial bodies from the University of New Mexico, headed the identification project. One satellite is orbiting about 400 miles out, while the other track is 600 miles from the earth. Pentagon thought momentarily the Russians had beaten the U.S. to space explorations.

Interest in the Black Knight was higher each year, in 1957, an unknown “object” was seen “shadowing”  the Sputnik 1 Spacecraft. According to reports, the “unidentified object” was in Polar orbit, at that time The United States nor the Russians possessed the technology to maintain a spacecraft in Polar Orbit.  According to our research, the first Polar-orbiting satellite was launched in 1960.

Polar orbits are often used for earth-mapping, earth observation, capturing the earth as time passes from one point and reconnaissance satellites. This would put the Black Knight in the category of an observational Satellite, the only question here is, who placed The Black Knight in a polar orbit and for what purpose?

The Object continued to amaze Astronomers World Wide. In the 1960’s the Black Knight was located once again in Polar Orbit. Astronomers and Scientists calculated the object’s weight to be over 10 tons which would be at that time the Heaviest Artificial Satellite to orbit our Planet. The Black Knight’s Orbit was unlike any other object orbiting Earth, as it was moving twice as fast when compared to any other man-made Spacecraft.

There are also several reports that the Grumman Aircraft Corporation gave much importance to this mysterious “Satellite”, On September 3, 1960, seven months after the satellite was first detected by radar, a tracking camera at Grumman Aircraft Corporation’s Long Island factory took a photograph of the Black Knight. At that point, people all over the world started identifying the object in the sky, which could be seen as a red light moving at higher speed compared to other satellites in an East to West orbit. The Grumman Aircraft Corporation formed a committee to study the data received from the observations made, but nothing was made public.

In 1963, Gordon Cooper was launched into space. On his final orbit, he reported seeing a glowing green object in front of his capsule in the distance moving towards his Spacecraft. The Muchea tracking station, in Australia, which Cooper reported the object to, picked up this Unidentified object on Radar traveling East to West. NBC reported this, but after Cooper had returned to Earth, the Reporters were not allowed to ask Cooper about the unidentified object. The official explanation given to Coopers sighting were “high levels of carbon dioxide, which caused hallucinations“.

The Black Knight has been a topic of interest all around the world. Until today, most of the “official” information on the mysterious object is kept safe and away from society. No one has answered some of the most simple and logical questions to ask, who placed that “satellite” in Polar orbit? To what purpose?

Is the Black Knight an Extraterrestrial satellite sent to Earth to study the Human race? Did the Satellite attempt to communicate with the human race? Have we ignored attempted communications? One thing is for sure; The Black Knight remains as one of the most mysterious objects to orbit our planet. Is there a connection between this (in)famous space object and ancient mankind’s achievements?

Are Alien UFOs extracting ‘energy’ from our Sun? | Ancient Code

Images captured by NASA satellite show what many believe are ‘Alien spacecraft’ using our sun as a ‘cosmic refuel station’. In the past couple of years, a great number of images and videos have been posted of strange objects—some of them the size of Earth—which appear to be manipulating our sun. 

UFO hunters claim to have spotted an extraterrestrial spacecraft ‘extracting’ energy from the Sun. According to them, images posted by NASA show an unknown object connected to the star through a ‘straight line’, evidence that alien spaceships use our sun as a ‘cosmic refuel station’.

According to UFO hunters, the process seen in the images is ‘star lifting’, a technology used by advanced civilizations used to extract material from a star and use it for different purposes, even as a fuel.

A video uploaded to YouTube by Alien Hunter Streetcap1 asks where a massive UFO is feeding off of our Stars energy.

In the footnote, the author points out that he had noticed that the colors of the supposed ship and the rest of the line are different, so decided to publish this video online, to see what other people think.

“I did not think much about the theory of Solar plasma energy, but this made me think,” he adds. However, another UFO expert, Nigel Watson, does not believe the images are evidence of extraterrestrial life.

“These can be objects that shoot from the surface of the Sun and may seem sinister given the poor quality of the images, so we use our imagination to find aliens in them,” Watson was quoted as saying by the Daily Mail.

Apparently, there are mixed feelings about the possibility that UFOs are using our sun as a refuel station.

‘Professional’ Ufologists have not ventured out and said that’s something they consider possible, showing signs of skepticism when it comes to the matter, which is why many others who believe something like this is entirely possible say that mainstream UFO researchers need to open their minds to new possibilities, if we are to understand these phenomena.

In the past, countless videos and images have been posted by different people on social networks suggesting alien ships are using our sun as either a refuel station or cosmic doorway.

Physicist Nassim Haramein talked about alien ships that could be using our sun in different ways to travel around the universe.

Nassim Haramein has spent over 30 years researching and discovering connections in physics, mathematics, geometry, cosmology, and quantum mechanics.

Many scientists refuse to take into consideration what Nassim Haramein has to say, mostly because he has no problems speaking about anything from the construction of the pyramids to UFO’s and alien life.

However, despite the fact that many have dubbed him as a fringe scientist, Haramein has written a number of extremely interesting papers—backed by serious research, and built on solid existing theories and experimentation. Haramein theorized about Black Holes or Singularities which according to him exist at the center of atoms. Interestingly, a number of articles have come out covering research with similar conclusions after he presented his work. You can see examples here, and here.
