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.

How will humanity react to alien life? Psychologists have some predictions.

Psychologists at Arizona State University studied how humans are likely to respond to the discovery of alien microbes. (Monica Akhtar/The Washington Post)

Germs stuck to the outside of the International Space Station are not from around here, cosmonaut Anton Shkaplerov said in an interview last week with Russian state-owned news service Tass. Microbes “have come from outer space and settled along the external surface,” Shkaplerov said. “They are being studied so far, and it seems that they pose no danger.” Russia’s space agency, Roscosmos, has not weighed in on this extraordinary claim.

The odds are not on the side of aliens. If microorganisms are tucked away within the space station hull’s crannies, as Shkaplerov says, they probably hitchhiked the 250 miles from our planet’s surface.

But imagine if scientists found alien microbes. How would humanity react to the news?

Michael Varnum, a psychologist at Arizona State University and a member of its new Interplanetary Initiative, is trying to anticipate this response. “One of the initial questions [of the initiative] that we’re curious about is how might we respond if we discover evidence of extraterrestrial life,” he said.

The moment when humans meet E.T. is a staple of fiction and speculation, as well as armchair science and conspiracy YouTube. No one has predicted the psychological reactions to extraterrestrial microorganisms in a “systematic, careful way,” Varnum said.

Varnum teamed up with planetary scientists and conducted three experiments. The study, published online in November on a preprint server, is still under review, Varnum said. Two psychologists not involved with this research told The Washington Post that the study’s methods were robust.

The psychologist and his co-authors “make a critical distinction between reactions to the discovery of extraterrestrial intelligence and finding evidence for microbial life beyond Earth,” said Douglas Vakoch, president of the nonprofit group Messaging Extraterrestrial Intelligence, who was not part of the study. This work is unusual, he said, as studies past have focused on intelligent life.

In the first experiment in the study, Varnum and his co-authors analyzed how the media covers extraterrestrial discoveries. They looked at five events: the discovery of pulsars in 1967, which were not immediately recognized as natural; Ohio astronomer Jerry Ehman’s detection of the “Wow!” radio signal in 1977 (the signal’s source remains disputed); the 1996 announcement of fossilized microbes in a Martian meteorite; the strange behavior of Tabby’s Star reported in 2015; and 2017’s discoveries of exoplanets that exist within distant habitable zones.

The psychologists fed 15 articles — by the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, The Post and others — through a program that analyzes written content for positive or negative words. Journalists described these events using words with “positive affect” significantly more frequently.

“The reaction seemed to be much more positive than negative,” Varnum said.

Gordon Pennycook, a Yale University psychologist who studies beliefs about religion, health and fake news, said the technique was solid but argued that the results were not particularly illuminating. “I’m not sure that the language analysis reveals anything special,” Pennycook said, because “there is some evidence people do use more positive than negative words generally.”

The researchers also paid online participants to respond to announcements about extraterrestrial microbes. The scientists asked 500 people to describe their reactions to a hypothetical discovery of alien microorganisms. Respondents also had to predict how humanity at large would react. Like the journalists, people in the study used positive words. There were no characteristics that set responses apart, not a person’s income, ethnicity, political orientation or traits such as neuroticism or agreeableness. But people felt that the rest of the country would be generally less agreeable.

That may be because “most Americans tend to think, on any desirable trait or ability, that they’re better than the average person,” Varnum said.

In a follow-up poll, the researchers presented more than 250 people with a 1996 New York Times article, stripped of its date, reporting evidence of fossilized nanobacteria in a Martian meteorite.

The meteorite was a piece of Mars that had been knocked off its home planet and landed in Antarctica. Researchers reported in the journal Science that they found complex organic molecules in the meteorite and impressions of what they thought looked like tiny cells, among other potential signs of fossilized Martian life. The claim was so explosive that President Bill Clinton issued a statement, saying, “Like all discoveries, this one will and should continue to be reviewed, examined and scrutinized.” Over years of scrutiny, the claim of fossils in the Mars meteorite was dismissed. The consensus now is that the suggested signs of life were simply natural mineral deposits. The participants in the new study weren’t told that, however.

As a control, another group of participants read a New York Times article about the creation of synthetic life in geneticist Craig Venter’s lab in 2010. Venter and his team created a bacterial genome from scratch and popped it into a cell membrane, essentially forming a new organism.

Participants in both groups described their reactions positively, though the “positivity bias” — the proportion of pleasant to unpleasant words — was stronger regarding the fossils.

Given these results, Pennycook said he would be “pretty confident” that, if NASA announced the discovery of alien microbes tomorrow, Americans would react positively.

“Results of this new study mirror a survey conducted by theologian Ted Peters, who explored the impact of discovering extraterrestrial life on a person’s religious beliefs,” Vakoch said. Most people responded that their own religious beliefs could withstand the announcement — but other believers would struggle. “It looks like we don’t need to be worried about others not being able to handle an announcement of extraterrestrial life,” he said. “They’ll do just fine.”

Planetary scientist Lindy Elkins-Tanton, who is the director of Arizona State University’s initiative but was not directly involved with this study, said that “getting ready for what we might find” in space is the first step. That Americans respond positively, she said, is “quite hopeful.”

Varnum cautioned that these results do not reflect how the rest of the world might respond. Vakoch echoed that sentiment. Past research on extraterrestrial civilizations suggest that Americans tended to view aliens in a more black-and-white way than residents of China, for instance, he said. “Chinese participants were able to imagine contact would lead to both risks and benefits,” whereas Americans either thought the discovery would be “all good or all bad, but not both,” he said.

It is also critical to acquaint people with ambiguity, Elkins-Tanton said. She cited the long debate around the Martian meteorite. Even in the event that a retrieval mission to Mars obtained a sample and brought it to a lab, and observers witnessed the organism reproducing, consensus would not be sudden, given the possibility of Earth contamination. Under what scenario, would the scientific community be most swiftly convinced? “Unless we go to Europa and find a giant skeleton,” Elkins-Tanton said. “Really, it’s not going to happen.”

Teeny E.T. is not such a far-out idea. For 2.9 billion years, all life on Earth was microscopic. If evolution works the same way elsewhere in the universe, the average alien will be smaller than a little green man. Much smaller.

“It’s more likely that we’re going to find microbes or viruses rather than, say, intelligent civilizations living on Venus,” Varnum said.

Vakoch was not so quick to relinquish the radio telescope to the microscope when it comes to searching for aliens.

“While it’s no doubt true that there are more planets in the galaxy with microbial life than with intelligent life, that doesn’t mean we’ll detect ‘bacteria’ beyond Earth before we pick up a radio signal,” Vakoch said. He predicted that, as long as the money doesn’t dry up, surveyors will listen to a million stars in the next decade, looking for noisy extraterrestrials.

Why Harvard scientists think Oumuamua is an alien spacecraft – Business Insider

Narrator: We have a mysterious new kid on the block. Astronomers call it Oumuamua. Which in Hawaiian, roughly translates to “first time visitor from far away.” Oumuamua is the first interstellar object ever detected in our solar system. Astronomers discovered it in 2017 with the Pan-STARRS1 telescope. And like all grand discoveries, it has raised more questions than it answers. Where did it come from? What’s it made of? And yes, even the ultimate query, is it aliens? That’s what two Harvard astrophysicists posed in a recent paper, suggesting that Oumuamua could be some type of alien spacecraft. And when we spoke with one of them, the idea didn’t sound as far-fetched as you might think.

Loeb: I prefer to adopt the maxim of Sherlock Holmes that if you rule out the impossible, whatever remains, as improbable as it is, must be the truth.

Narrator: Now a good rule of thumb is that aliens are always the least likely answer. But here’s the thing, the more reasonable explanation right now isn’t panning out. Most astronomers think that Oumuamua is probably a stray comet from another stellar system. The only problem is that it doesn’t look like any comet we’ve ever seen, because it appears to lack that iconic tail.

Loeb: There was an anomaly seen in the data. And it cannot be explained by the most conventional explanation, which in this case is a cometary outgassing. And so we propose an alternative interpretation which is the only one I can think of. Narrator: But it seems extreme to assume aliens just because Oumuamua doesn’t look like a comet, right? Not when the Harvard scientists accounted for another peculiarity. As Oumuamua traveled through our solar system, it didn’t follow the normal path of a typical comet under the sun’s gravity. Rather, it slightly shifted off course, which couldn’t be explained by gravity alone. Something else, some unknown force was also at play, manipulating the object’s behavior.

Loeb: I cannot think of any other possibility other than the outgassing that we find in comets, which seems to be ruled out because we don’t see a cometary tail, or the pressure from the sunlight. There is no other proposal on the table right now.

Narrator: Pressure from sunlight. It works similarly to how wind pushes against a sail on a boat. So too can sunlight push against a spacecraft to propel it through space. Incidentally, we call these spacecraft solar sails. There’s just one catch. Pressure from sunlight is extremely light. Lighter than the weight of a fly on your hand. Which means in order for it to be effective, solar sails also have to be extremely light and thin. In 2010, for example, Japan’s space agency launched its Ikaros solar sail, which only weighed 1.1 pounds. But it eventually managed to travel over 65 million miles from Earth on just sunlight alone. And it’s this type of force that the Harvard scientists think could be propelling Oumuamua too. Of course, that’s if it’s an alien made sail in the first place.

Loeb: Well first of all, I am not confident that this is the correct interpretation because we don’t have enough data. And so this is one possibility. I would highly recommend people to read the paper. If they have a better idea, they should publish it.

Narrator: And as always, not everyone agrees with Loeb’s hypothesis.

Weryk: I think that their explanation, I think it’s in contrast with what the data says. You know, we did consider that possibility in our own paper, which was published earlier, and we dismissed it as not being physically valid. You know again, there’s no reason to think Oumuamua is anything but a natural object.

Narrator: That’s Rob Weryk, who first discovered Oumuamua in 2017.

Weryk: So we think Oumuamua still has ice and the sublimating ice gives it a small tiny kick that gravity alone wouldn’t account for, but that the dust it has is much larger than what comets typically have. And so we just don’t see that from the ground.

Narrator: And yes, in all probability, he’s right. Oumuamua is a natural object, like a comet or asteroid. But neither Weryk nor Loeb can know for sure without more data. And sadly, Oumuamua is on its way out of the solar system beyond the reach of our telescopes. So the best bet for solving this mystery?

Weryk: So for Oumuamua itself, it’s basically gone, it’s too faint to see from the ground. There’s no way we could send a spacecraft mission, so we really have to find a second object. That would help answer a lot of questions that we don’t know. You know, I’m very interested in finding a second one. It’d be nice if I found them all.

Narrator: And Loeb already has some ideas on where to look next.

Loeb: There should be quite a lot of them right now in the solar system. And some of them could be trapped by Jupiter and the sun that act as a fishing net. And so some of these interstellar objects are bound to this solar system after the first passage.

Narrator: That’s right. Some of these interstellar objects might be right here in our solar system, trapped, and waiting to be found. It looks like astronomers may have more fascinating discoveries to come.

Why Did the FBI Raid the Home of the Biggest Alien Truther?

In December 2017, The New York Times revealed the existence of a top secret government program called Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification. “The program produced documents that describe sightings of aircraft that seemed to move at very high velocities with no visible signs of propulsion, or that hovered with no apparent means of lift,” the Times reported. As New York Magazine explained in a summary of the piece, “The internet went slightly more bananas than usual last weekend over The New York Times’ story implying that extraterrestrials are real and the U.S. government has been tracking them for years.” The paper of record’s reporting was long-awaited validation for anyone who has ever claimed a UFO sighting, or an inexplicable encounter with the beyond.

While the exposé was far from definitive, it appeared to be an important step forward—and an I told you so—for people like Bob Lazar, the subject of Jeremy Corbell’s new documentary Bob Lazar: Area 51 and Flying Saucers. In 1989, a then-anonymous Bob Lazar put Area 51 on the map when he came forward with his unbelievable story. Lazar said that he studied captured alien technology at a site called S-4, near the desert test facility. Almost 30 years later, Lazar’s story hasn’t changed, but our collective capacity for incredulity has certainly been tested. And Bob Lazar has been patiently waiting for us.

For a film that stars a humble, straightforward scientist who just so happened to spend some time with extraterrestrial technologies in the 1980s, Bob Lazar: Area 51 and Flying Saucers relishes in the surreal, trippy and spectacular. The documentary, part of Corbell’s Extraordinary Beliefs investigative film series, immediately overwhelms the viewer with flashing lights and disconcerting visuals. Meanwhile, Mickey Rourke’s narration ricochets into the frame as if from another dimension, raspy and strange, announcing, “Not to burst your bubble, but the Earth is not the center of the universe.”

“We create our own reality,” Rourke’s disembodied voice continues, as we see an iPhone light up with a number of texts from Bob Lazar, saying that he is being raided by the FBI. This is where we start: with a raid that we are led to believe is in response to a recently-filmed conversation between Corbell and Lazar. “This story is extraordinary, especially if it’s true,” Rourke growls. “And it all started in the desert, just north of Las Vegas.”

Lazar first made waves as an anonymous scientist. He told the media about Area 51, and claimed that there were nine disks “of extraterrestrial origin” being tested and studied there. He insisted that he had no idea how the government got their hands on these spaceships, and that his life had been threatened over this information. Lazar called the government’s secrecy a “crime against the scientific community,” who had been robbed of the opportunity to study and reckon with this otherworldly technology. When Lazar eventually did go public, it was in a series of interviews with journalist George Knapp, who has been described as “the best known above-ground correspondent on the ET beat.” Knapp first appears in the documentary providing background on Lazar, and warning Corbell that he might not want to talk. “He doesn’t like the attention,” Knapp explains. “It totally screwed up his life.”

Knapp’s early coverage is excerpted throughout the documentary. Lazar, young and wiry, walked Knapp through every detail. During his job-application process, he seemingly stumbled into this unique position. Early on, he said, he was given briefings to pore over. They referred to flying saucers and extraterrestrials. Recalling his disbelief, Lazar explained, “It’s a science dream.” He says his new employers showed him a spacecraft. He was tasked with reverse engineering the propulsion, to see if they could recreate it.

“It’s a fantastic story, but it’s true,” Lazar continued. “These crafts come from another solar system entirely. And they’re here.”

In those late-‘80s clips, Lazar explained that he was going public “as insurance,” and claimed that his tire had been shot out while he was driving his car. Knapp’s conversations with Lazar, and his work attempting to verify the scientist’s story, exploded, and gave Area 51 the name recognition and international allure it enjoys to this day. “Tens of thousands of people started showing up out there,” Knapp recalls. “I know a lot of my media colleagues had problems with that story, but they covered it.”

Come for the aliens, stay for Mickey Rourke describing the topography of Area 51 like so: “The mountains appear to float on dry lake beds, like spaceships from another world… What are they building in the desert north of Las Vegas? What the fuck are they hiding?”

Of course, old news clips and drawings of aliens set to Mickey Rourke’s trippy spoken-word poetry recitations only go so far. The documentary begins in earnest when an unassuming man in a crewneck sweatshirt and wire-rim glasses first addresses the camera. “My name’s Bob Lazar, I’m known for working at a classified base known as S-4 out in the Nevada desert near Area 51. And there, we reverse-engineered alien space crafts.” Present-day Lazar owns and runs a scientific supply company and lives with his wife Joy, who appears to have zero reservations about her husband’s claims: “He doesn’t make stuff up.”

Bob Lazar: Area 51 and Flying Saucers follows Lazar through domestic scenes and films him at work, puttering around with beakers and pipettes. These everyday images are seemingly incompatible with the interviews that Corbell is conducting throughout, as Lazar calmly answers questions about the alien technology he claims to have worked with. Lazar’s main gripes with the United States government are consistent with the concerns he shared decades ago: that people are not just being robbed of the truth about extraterrestrial life, but of awesome technology that has the power to shift “the entire world economy.”

Specifically, Lazar recalls technology that produces and controls gravity, and uses it for propulsion. He explains that “this is a reaction-less craft.” Instead of expelling something, like air or exhaust, “It creates a distortion in space and time in front of it, where space actually bends.” At multiple points in the documentary, Lazar stresses that this technology could not possibly have been human-made. “There’s another civilization in existence that’s intelligent that we know about, and we actually have artifacts from them,” he insists. “The science and the technology can change us dramatically.”

Naturally, Lazar’s story was highly contested at the time. Most notably, reporters were unable to verify that he attended Cal Tech and MIT as he claimed. Los Alamos denied his testimony that he worked there, but his name was found listed in a 1982 phone book for the lab “among the other scientists,” and a 1982 clipping from the Los Alamos newspaper described him as “a physicist at the Los Alamos Meson Physics Facility.” Officials at Los Alamos insisted that they had “no records at all” of Lazar. “It’s as if someone made him disappear,” an old news clip intones.

Lazar “wanted to try everything I could to prove what I was saying.” He underwent hypnosis, attempting to retrieve lost information that could fill out and substantiate his story. He took four polygraph tests, with expert administrators concluding “no attempt to deceive.”

Present-day Lazar is more or less resigned to the disbelievers. “What else can I say?” he wonders. “I have better things to do than come up with this,” Lazar continues. “I could make up a better lie, but I have no motivation to lie. This hasn’t helped me out.” Indeed, the scientist stops short of claiming that he ever saw aliens at the site. He does note that the seats in the saucers were small, almost child-sized. There was a nickname for aliens around the facility: “the kids.”

Over the course of the film, Knapp makes a number of convincing arguments for his continued faith in Lazar. At one point, he stresses, “We checked out so many details that Bob had told us that turned out to be true.” Bob Lazar: Area 51 and Flying Saucers is strongest when it takes up this mantle of investigative reporting, like when Corbell tracks down the man who Lazar says did his background check to confirm his story.

The film culminates in the heavily-teased FBI raid. In a spooky clip, Lazar and Corbell go deep into the woods to discuss claims that Lazar made when he first went public: that he had managed to steal a piece of “element 115,” the then-undiscovered element that Lazar says fueled the reactors. The clip distorts and flashes, and Lazar never gives a straight answer. The next day Lazar’s business was raided by the FBI, and, we are told, “this conversation was directly referenced in the raid.” While authorities said that they were looking for years-old paperwork for a customer who had ordered potentially toxic materials, Lazar describes the raid as “like a Twilight Zone episode.”

“The street filled up with vehicles and the building completely filled with agents”—and all for something “they could have called for.” Corbell asks Lazar if he believes that the authorities are trying to find the 115 that he claimed to have taken out of the lab 30 years ago. “I don’t feel comfortable addressing that,” Lazar replies.

Scientific study suggests Alien Civilizations may number in trillions | Ancient Code

“We really do know that pretty much every star in the sky hosts at least one planet…” – astronomer Adam Frank.

Rejoice, Alien hunters, the possibility that Earth is not the only planet inhabited by an intelligent civilization has gained more credibility thanks to a brand new study that coincides with NASA’s recent planetary discoveries. The new study, published in the Journal Astrobiology proposes that more planets in our galaxy harbor advanced civilizations than anyone previously imagined.

“We really do know that pretty much every star in the sky hosts at least one planet,” said astronomer Adam Frank co-author of the study.

Woodruff Sullivan and Adam Frank looked at NASA’s recent discoveries of potentially habitable worlds and considered the odds whether sophisticated civilizations could have inhabited them or still do.

“What we showed was the ‘floor’ on the probability for a civilization to form on any randomly chosen planet,” Frank, a University of Rochester physics and astronomy professor, told The Huffington Post in an email. “If we are the only civilization in cosmic history, then that what we calculated is the actual probability nature has set. But if the real probability is higher than that floor, then civilizations have happened before.” 

According to Frank, the potential number of planets orbiting their host star within a habitable distance is staggering.

This raises hopes that one of those planets might host alien life, and with a bit of luck, we even might discover an advanced alien civilization inhabiting one of those planets.

“Even if you are pretty pessimistic and think that you’d have to search through 100 billion (habitable zone) planets before you found one where a civilization developed, then there have still been a trillion civilizations over cosmic history!” Frank wrote. “When I think about that, my mind reels — even if there is just a one in a 100 billion chance of evolution creating exo-civilizations, the universe still has made so many of them that we are swamped by histories other than our own.”

The Drake equation

One of the most famous equations dealing with the possibility of Alien life existing in the universe is the Drake Equation. It was created by astronomer Frank Drake in 1961, and it estimates the number of planets that may be home to advanced alien civilizations with the ability to communicate with other civilizations in the cosmos.

However, Frank and Sullivan modified the Drake equation implementing new data into it. Since the Drake equation analyzes the possibility of advanced civilizations existing in the Milky Way, the equation proposed by Frank and Sullivan calculate the possible number of advanced alien civilizations that have existed in our galaxy throughout the whole ‘known’ history of the universe.

With all the suitable real estate that’s out there, if we’re the only place with intelligent life, then we’ve really won the mother of all lotteries.” –Seth Shostak, SETI Institute senior astronomer.

Scientists consider the following when attempting to come up with numbers of Extraterrestrial worlds:

The number of civilizations in Galaxy whose electromagnetic emissions are detectable.

R*

The rate of formation of stars suitable for the development of intelligent life, in stars per year.

fp

The fraction of those stars with planetary systems.

ne

The number of planets, per solar system, with an environment suitable for life.

fl

The fraction of suitable planets on which life actually appears.

fi

The fraction of life bearing planets on which intelligent life emerges.

fc

The fraction of civilizations that develop a technology that releases detectable signs of their existence into space.

The length of time such civilizations release detectable signals into space, in years.

Writing in the Astrobiology study, Frank and Sullivan state:

“ Recent advances in exoplanet studies provide strong constraints on all astrophysical terms in the Drake equation. Using these and modifying the form and intent of the Drake equation, we set a firm lower bound on the probability that one or more technological species have evolved anywhere and at any time in the history of the observable Universe.” (source)

The two researchers write about what they call: “the cosmic frequency of technological species.”

“The universe is more than 13 billion years old,” Sullivan, of the astronomy department and astrobiology program at the University of Washington, said in a statement. “That means that even if there have been 1,000 civilizations in our own galaxy if they live only as long as we have been around — roughly 10,000 years — then all of them are likely already extinct. And others won’t evolve until we are long gone.

“For us to have much chance of finding another ‘contemporary’ active technological civilization, on average they must last much longer than our present lifetime,” Sullivan said. (source)

We have searched for traces of advanced alien civilizations, in hopes of finding out we are not alone for decades.

“With so many stars and planets filling the cosmos, it boggles the mind to think that we’re the only clever life to have made an appearance,” SETI Institute senior astronomer Seth Shostak told HuffPost in an email. “Frank and Sullivan use new research indicating that roughly one in five stars is orbited by a planet that could nurture biology. After that, it’s just a matter of counting up the tally of stars in the visible universe, and saying that — with all the suitable real estate that’s out there, if we’re the only place with intelligent life, then we’ve really won the mother of all lotteries.

However, Shostak tells us not to be overly optimistic or pessimistic about the SETI Institutes search for intelligent signals from our cosmic neighbors.

“The odds that no one is out there are very, very small. It’s a bit like an ant coming out of its hive, seeing the enormous amount of real estate stretching in all directions and deciding that, if its home is the only ant hill, then its existence is a near-miracle,” said Shostak in an interview with HuffPost.

Are These Mysterious Ancient Maya Artifacts Evidence Of Ancient Alien Contact? | Ancient Code

Thousands of years ago, the ancient Maya developed into one of the most influential ancient civilizations in Mesoamerica.

Occupying a territory from Mexico to El Salvador, the powerful Maya became one of the dominant forces in the region, creating massive cities, trading routes, and breathtaking temples and pyramids.

The Maya stood out in the American Continent due to their hieroglyphic writing, one of the few fully developed writing systems of the pre-Columbian American continent, as well as for its art, architecture, and systems of mathematics, astronomy, and ecology. They were one of the most developed ancient cultures in America.

The Ancient Maya developed in the region that encompasses the southeast of Mexico, corresponding to the states of Yucatan, Campeche, Tabasco, Quintana Roo and the eastern part of Chiapas, as well as in most of Guatemala, Belize, the western part of Honduras and El Salvador.

This region is composed of the northern lowlands that encompass the Yucatan peninsula, the highlands of the Sierra Madre that extends through the Mexican state of Chiapas, southern Guatemala to El Salvador, and the southern lowlands in the south.

Posted by Arqueología Extraterrestre Mexico on Saturday, September 23, 2017

The Mayan civilization developed sophisticated forms of art using both perishable and durable materials, including wood, jade, obsidian, pottery, carved stone monuments, stuccoes and finely painted murals.

The Mayans produced a great variety of architectural structures and left an extensive architectural legacy, which placed the Mayan civilization among the great pre-industrial civilizations of the world.

Mayan architecture also incorporated glyphic texts and various art forms.

The Mayan masonry architecture is evidence of the existence of artisan specialization in Mayan society, as well as a centralized organization and political means to mobilize a large workforce.

Long story short? The Maya were a civilization unlike any other in America.

And because of their extreme level of advancement, many researchers and ancient astronaut theorists have pondered whether it is possible that the ancient Maya obtained their advanced knowledge in engineering, astronomy, and mathematics from an otherworldly influence?

Mysterious artifacts, evidnece of ancient alien contact?

Over the years, numerous alleged artifacts said to have belonged to the ancient Maya civilization have been excavated in Central America.

More than six years ago, a stunning set of images made the news after a number of researchers claimed to have rediscovered long-lost ancient Maya artifacts depicting what appear to be spaceships, alien figurines, and star-maps.

Because of the nature of the claims, these artifacts were quickly labeled as a hoax, and the fuss behind the discovery vanished into history as one of the many hoaxed objects found around the globe.

Different artifacts have been discovered throughout the years. The first set of artifact (see below) were allegedly discovered in Calakmul, Mexico. 

The site is located in the central/southern portion of the Yucatán Peninsula, in southern Mexico and includes the remains of the important Maya city Calakmul, set deep in the tropical forest of the Tierras Bajas.

Here are the alleged items that were supposedly carved by the ancient Maya, and are evidence of ancient alien contact:

The above artifacts, allegedly made by the ancient Maya have been heavily criticized by experts who maintain they are an elaborate hoax.

The first article I read when I started looking for information about these strange articles was this one from the Guardian. There is a lot of stuff that seems out of place here. The biggest mistake in the article is that they mention president “Álvaro Colom” and speak about him being Mexico’s president which is a mistake, he, in fact, is a Guatemalan politician who was the President of Guatemala from 2008 to 2012.

From there everything went downhill and the little belief I actually had was gone (you really cannot make a mistake like that, can you?).

The article also seems to mention several statements of high ranking officials from Mexico and Guatemala that discussed these artifacts, yet I have not been able to find transcripts or anything like that online.

I did, in fact, find the images of these artifacts and I must admit they seem impressive. From what I have read about the subject, there is little to none credible information, and the archaeological discovery itself is questionable.

But the above artifacts are not the only ones that have been found so far.

In fact, numerous other similar objects have been discovered throughout the years.

U.S. Defense Physicist Speaks about ‘Alien’ Structures on the moon | Ancient Code

“…As somebody in the space defense community, I look on any such structure on the moon with great concern because it isn’t ours, there’s no way we could have built such a thing. It means someone else is up there…”

The disclosure movement has gained millions of followers in the last couple of years mostly thanks to people like John Podesta, Chief of Staff for Bill Clinton, Counsellor to Barack Obama the Chairman of the 2016 Hillary Clinton presidential campaign who said that:

“I’m skeptical about many things, including the notion that government always knows best, and that the people can’t be trusted with the truth. The time to pull the curtain back on this subject is long overdue.”

“We have statements from the most credible sources – those in a position to know – about a fascinating phenomenon, the nature of which is yet to be determined.” (source)

But in addition to Mr. Podesta, dozens if not hundreds of highly ranked government officials, scientists, and former astronauts have spoken out freely about Alien life and the UFO phenomenon.

Curiously, in addition to scientists, government officials, and military personnel who have spoken out about alien life, perhaps the most competent people to talk about UFOs are airline pilots.

This takes us to one of the most curious airline sightings that occurred in 1997.

As Leslie Kean writes in her book UFOs: Generals, Pilots, and Government Officials Go on the Record:

Neil Daniels, a United Airlines captain for thirty-five years,  with more than 30,000 hours of flying time and an Air Force Distinguished Flying Cross, was one of those pilots who feared to report his sighting, despite the physical effect experienced by his airplane. In 1977, he, his copilot, and a flight engineer observed a perfectly round, “brilliant, brilliant light off the wing tip” as he described it, about 1,000 yards away from their United DC-io, which was en route to Boston Logan from San Francisco.

While flying on autopilot, the passenger plane was forced into an uncommanded left turn, apparently pulled by the object’s magnetic interference, prompting Boston Center to ask, “United 94, where are you going?”

Captain Daniels replied, “Well, let me figure this out. I’ll let you know.” The captain and his first officer then noticed that their three compasses were all reading different headings, and at that point they deliberately uncoupled the autopilot and flew the airplane manually. (Haines points out that the magnetic sensor providing the input to the compass then controlling the autopilot was the one located nearest to the UAP.)

The powerful light followed along with the aircraft at the same altitude for several minutes, and then took off rapidly and disappeared.

As you can see, it is inevitable that within the next decade, everything there is to know about alien life will most likely be disclosed. Willingly or unwillingly, the time has come for society to find out the truth behind the millions of sightings that have occurred for centuries.

But let us take a step back and return to the subject the article is initially discussing.

Dr. John Brandenburg, who has a Ph.D. in Plasma Physics, and a  consultant at Morningstar Applied Physics LLC, and part-time instructor of Astronomy, Physics, and Mathematics at Madison College has given what some are calling ‘substantial evidence’ of alien life present in our solar system.

To understand why Dr. Brandenburg is so significant in the disclosure movement we look at his career. Interestingly, Brandenburg was involved in NASA’s Clementine Mission to the Moon, which was a joint space project where the Ballistic Missile Defence Organization (BMDO) participated together with NASA to do some research on the moon. The Clementine mission is important because it found there is water on the Moon’s poles.

According to Dr. Brandenburg:

“It was (the Clementine Mission) a photo reconnaissance mission basically to check out if someone was building bases on the moon that we didn’t know about. Were they expanding them?”

“Of all the pictures I’ve seen from the moon that show possible structures, the most impressive is an image of a mile wide recto-linear structure. This looked unmistakably artificial, and it shouldn’t be there. As somebody in the space defense community, I look on any such structure on the moon with great concern because it isn’t ours, there’s no way we could have built such a thing. It means someone else is up there.”

Dr. Brandenburg additionally stated that once the Clementine mission was completed, the images taken from the moon were analyzed by ‘an elite department team with the highest security clearance’:

“… They basically kept to themselves and just did their work, and we were told not to interfere with them…”

Interestingly, Brandenburg was also quoted saying thatWe were aware there was a possibility of an unknown presence, possibly alien/extraterrestrial near the Earth…”

Brandenburg recounted one occasion: “…There I am sitting in a room of retired army and air force generals and a few admirals, and we’re watching what looks like a firefight in space. The most senior general there … turned to me and said, “Where do you think they’re from?” and I said, “I don’t know sir, I’ve heard they’re from 40 light years from here.”

In addition to Dr. Brandeburg, numerous other scientists and academics have come forward speaking about Alien life and UFOs, encouraged perhaps, by people like John Podesta, Theodor C. Loder III, PhD, Professor Emeritus of Earth Sciences, University of New Hampshire who also said: “Intelligent beings from other star systems have been and are visiting our planet Earth. They are variously referred to as Visitors, Others, Star People, ETs, etc…” And Dr. Brian O’Leary, Former NASA Astronaut and Princeton physics professor who is quoted saying: “There is abundant evidence that we are being contacted, that civilizations have been visiting us for a very long time…”

If You Saw an Alien, Would You Even Know What It Is?

What would convince you that aliens existed? The question came up recently at a conference on astrobiology, held at Stanford University in California.

Several ideas were tossed around – unusual gases in a planet’s atmosphere, strange heat gradients on its surface. But none felt persuasive.

Finally, one scientist offered the solution: a photograph.

There was some laughter and a murmur of approval from the audience of researchers: yes, a photo of an alien would be convincing evidence, the holy grail of proof that we’re not alone.

But why would a picture be so convincing? What is it that we’d see that would tell us we weren’t just looking at another pile of rocks?

An alien on a planet orbiting a distant star would be wildly exotic, perhaps unimaginably so. What, then, would give it away as life?

The answer is relevant to our search for extraterrestrials, and what we might expect to find.

What are we looking for?

Astrobiology – the study of life on other planets – has grown from a fringe sub-discipline of biology, chemistry and astronomy to a leading interdisciplinary field, attracting researchers from top institutions across the globe, and large sums of money from both NASA and private funders.

But what exactly is it that astrobiologists are looking for? How will we know when it’s time to pop the Champagne?

One thing that sets life apart from nonlife is its apparent design. Living things, from the simplest bacteria to the great redwoods, have vast numbers of intricate parts working together to make the organism function.

Think of your hands, heart, spleen, mitochondria, cilia, neurons, toenails – all collaborating in synchrony to help you navigate, eat, think and survive. The most beautiful natural rock formations lack even a tiny fraction of the myriad parts of a single bacterial cell that coordinate to help it divide and reproduce. 

And living things, unlike dirt and wind, appear to be trying to do things – eat, grow, survive, reproduce. If you’ve ever tried to squish a resilient bug, you know that it doesn’t require a complex mind for an organism to appear to want to survive.

Or for a squirrel to ‘want’ to jump from one branch to the next. Or for a plant to ‘try’ to reach towards the Sun and soak up nutrients from the soil.

Not only do living things have many intricate parts, but all of those parts have the same, common purpose ­– survival and reproduction. This combination of complex design and apparent purpose, also known as adaptedness, defines life.

What does this mean?

When we look at that photo of an alien, it’s exactly this adaptedness that would make us go: ‘Aha!’

We would see, clearly, the difference between a disappointing pile of rocks and an exciting alien – design. This is good news, because there’s only one way to get such design: natural selection.

Natural selection occurs whenever you have a collection of things (cells, replicators, birds, an imaginary species we’ll call ‘Glipgloops’) that have three properties: variation, heredity and differential success.

For example, some of the Glipgloops we posited have longer eyestalks than others (variation).

Long-eyestalked Glipgloops have long-eyestalked babies (inheritance of the variation). And Glipgloops with long eyestalks can see out of their methane holes better and therefore have more babies (differential success linked to that variation).

The result is that, over time, Glipgloops evolve to have elongated eyestalks.

This is the process by which the apparent design in nature is generated: in every generation, at every instant, individuals with traits linked to better reproduction are being ‘selected’. As a result, over time, populations consist of individuals who appear designed for the purpose of reproducing.

It’s exactly because the selection criterion is always the same that design can develop.

Imagine a car that was constructed using a different blueprint at every step – well, you likely wouldn’t end up with a car. It’s natural selection’s unwavering mantra – the contribution of genes to future generations – that allows for design to appear without a designer.

In fact, the selection criterion is so consistent, that an organism cannot be designed for anything other than contributing genes to future generations. This is why we don’t get organisms who sacrifice for the good of their species.

In general, organisms are selfish – reproducing yourself at the expense of others is a great way to pass on genes.

We do sometimes see sacrifice and cooperation in nature – but only when the benefits of cooperation come back to you, or the sacrifice benefits relatives. Relatives share genes, so a bee can sacrifice for the queen (its mother), if it means she’ll produce 100 more sisters, each carrying half the bee’s genes.

The calculus of which traits lead to more genes, and exactly when and how much to sacrifice, is precise and rigid. This is why evolutionary biologists can make mathematical models that correctly predict how many helpers a bird should allow at her nest, and how often wasps should cannibalise their siblings.

But this algorithmic rigidity of natural selection also comes in handy for the astrobiologist.

A thread should be revealing itself: life is special because of its apparent design. The only way to get design without a designer is natural selection. Therefore, aliens must be the product of natural selection. And natural selection follows certain rules, and can produce only certain kinds of organisms.

Thus, astrobiologists can use the theory of natural selection, and the mathematics of evolution, to make predictions about aliens.

Are there exceptions?

We can’t get complex life, even something as simple as a bacterium, without natural selection. Even a postorganic, computer-based alien would ultimately be the product of a product of natural selection.

But let’s consider a borderline case. Imagine a collection of replicating molecules, like tiny naked genes, on an alien planet. If these replicators made copies of themselves (inheritance), but replicated perfectly every time (no variation or differential success), you wouldn’t get natural selection.

Would this be life? Maybe, but it wouldn’t be very exciting.

For one, without variation, the molecules can never change, or become more adapted, or evolve into anything more interesting or complex. Finding bacteria or bears on a distant planet would suggest that the universe might be teeming with life of all shapes and sizes.

These replicators wouldn’t suggest anything. Even more problematic, their existence would likely be fleeting – without natural selection, they wouldn’t be able to cope with changes on their planet, and so would disappear before we found them.

The argument from natural selection is robust, even at the boundaries. This frees us up to use the same evolutionary tools we use on Earth to make predictions about life elsewhere.

Previous work in astrobiology has extrapolated from what’s happened on Earth, potentially limiting our vision to certain special features, such as DNA or carbon-based life, that won’t hold on other planets. Natural selection, on the other hand, is universal.

It doesn’t depend on DNA (remember, Charles Darwin knew nothing of genes) or carbon chemistry or the presence of water. It’s incredibly simple – it just requires a few ingredients – and it’s the only way to generate life.

A mental image of that prized photo, showing entities apparently designed to fit their surroundings, is beginning to form. We can’t say whether the grainy picture of the alien will have eyes, or limbs, or be green.

That’s not the kind of prediction good evolutionary theory can make. But natural selection tells us that its forms, goals and evolutionary pathways are constrained.

(Helen Cooper/Cambridge University)(Helen Cooper/Cambridge University)

One example posed by our team in the sketch above is what we playfully call ‘the octomite’ – a conglomerate of once-separate entities now working together to survive, reproduce and evolve.

How would we recognise an alien? It would include a hierarchy of entities, with the interests of each lower level aligned with components in levels above.

The photo we envision would show division of labour, with various parts specialising in various tasks in a mutually dependent way.

This work of incorporating evolutionary theory into our astrobiological toolkit is only just beginning. What else can Darwin tell us about aliens? Presumably quite a lot.

The photo, if and when it comes, will be something entirely exotic to the naked eye. But to the student of evolutionary biology, it might look surprisingly familiar.Aeon counter – do not remove

Scientist claims Crop circles are ‘alien messages from the future’

A scientist who has a Ph.D. in chemistry from the university Caltech, in Pasadena, California claims that Crop Circles are Alien messages and crop circles have helped mankind leading to “at least one major breakthrough the discovery of a more advanced binary code than our computers currently use”.

The “Sentence of Symbols” crop formation, measuring 1,020 feet long, was found on June 12, 1999, by U.K. crop formation researcher Charles Mallett

Crop circles are a global phenomenon. Not only have crop circles appeared all around the planet, so far, there are quite a few of these strange appearances that have never been explained.

While some crop circles are just elaborate hoaxes, created by pranksters or ‘crop circle artists’, there are some which carry a mysterious message according to some.

Crop circles have been a subject of debate among researchers and UFOlogists for years. Richard Dolan, historian, academic, author and one of the world’s leading UFO researchers said that “Some of these formations are so immense and complex as to defy reason. And after all, these decades, none of the perpetrators have been caught in the act of making any of the truly extraordinary formations.”

Interestingly, according to estimates, crop circles appear at least every week somewhere on our planet, and contrary to popular belief, crop circles are not exclusive to recent decades. Reports of mysterious formations in fields have been reported for centuries.

Now, a scientist from the Caltech, in Pasadena, California, Dr. Horace Drew who has studied the phenomenon for years claims to have discovered the alien message behind these enigmatic formations.

Dr. Drew has spent over 20 years researching crop circles and claims that there are hidden messages—from several alien civilizations—embedded inside crop circles, as an attempt to communicate with mankind.

Furthermore, Dr. Drew explains that mankind has not been able to understand them since we are not advanced enough. Dr. Drew believes some crop circles are literally images from the future.

Dr. Drew, who know resides in Australia said: “When humans want to talk with dolphins we put little bubble circles under the ocean with a generator. We watch the dolphins come up and play and investigate, and we study them.”

“US Presidents have never said to a dolphin ‘take me to your leader, I want to sign a treaty with you’ and the extraterrestrials are not interested in making a treaty with us. They are ahead of us like we are ahead of the dolphins and the whales.”

Dr. Drew also claims that crop circles have helped mankind leading to “at least one major breakthrough the discovery of a more advanced binary code than our computers currently use”.

During a conference at the UFO and Paranormal Research Society in Australia, Dr. Drew said that there are some crop circles which could be messages from mankind from the future.

On the other hand, Nick Pope former employee of the Ministry of Defense, who currently is a journalist and UFO researcher claims that Crop Circles are anything but alien.

Speaking about the phenomenon Mr. Pope said: “It was soon clear to me that while these patterns were often stunning and intricate, they were made by people.

“Some of these hoaxers plan their patterns on computers, navigate by GPS and wear night vision goggles.

“An extraterrestrial civilization is unlikely to travel halfway across the cosmos, only to start making patterns in crop fields.”

According to historian Greg Jefferys: “The number of circular features that can be reasonably confirmed as crop circles that have been so far found in the survey of the currently available 1945 Google Earth overlay numbers about one dozen. As this survey did not include more than 35% of England and excluded the known crop circle ‘hot spots’ around Wiltshire the findings are consistent with an annual occurrence of around 100 crop circles across the English countryside in 1945. This, combined with a significant body of historical records describing crop circles, gives the lie to the claims made by various to be the originators and creators of all crop circles. This, in turn, begs the question ‘If not them, then who or what is responsible for the creation of crop circles?’” (source)

Who know, maybe after all… there’s something odd about these crop circles and its really E.T. trying to tell us something.

Kepler Space Telescope Discovers 95 More Alien Planets

The exoplanet discoveries by NASA’s Kepler space telescope keep rolling in.

Astronomers poring through data gathered during Kepler’s current extended mission, known as K2, have spotted 95 more alien planets, a new study reports. 

That brings the K2 tally to 292, and the total haul over Kepler’s entire operational life to nearly 2,440 — about two-thirds of all the alien worlds ever discovered. And more than 2,000 additional Kepler candidates await confirmation by follow-up observations or analysis. [7 Greatest Exoplanet Discoveries by NASA’s Kepler (So Far)]

Kepler launched in March 2009, on a mission to help scientists determine just how common rocky, potentially habitable worlds such as Earth are throughout the Milky Way. For four years, the spacecraft stared continuously at about 150,000 stars, looking for tiny dips in their brightness caused by the passage of planets across their faces.

This work was highly productive, as noted above. But in May 2013, the second of Kepler’s four orientation-maintaining “reaction wheels” failed, and the spacecraft lost its superprecise pointing ability, bringing the original mission to a close.

But mission managers figured out a way to stabilize Kepler using sunlight pressure, and the spacecraft soon embarked on its K2 mission, which involves exoplanet hunting on a more limited basis, as well as observing comets and asteroids in our own solar system, supernovas and a range of other objects and phenomena.

For the new study, researchers analyzed K2 data going all the way back to 2014, zeroing in on 275 “candidate” signals.

“We found that some of the signals were caused by multiple star systems or noise from the spacecraft,” study lead author Andrew Mayo, a Ph.D. student at the Technical University of Denmark’s National Space Institute, said in a statement. “But we also detected planets that range from sub-Earth-sized to the size of Jupiter and larger.”

Indeed, 149 of the signals turned out to be caused by bona fide exoplanets, 95 of which are new discoveries. And one of the new ones is a record setter.

“We validated a planet on a 10-day orbit around a star called HD 212657, which is now the brightest star found by either the Kepler or K2 missions to host a validated planet,” Mayo said. “Planets around bright stars are important because astronomers can learn a lot about them from ground-based observatories.”

The new study was published today (Feb. 15) in The Astronomical Journal.

The Reason why we stopped going to the Moon: The Alien Agenda

According to Aldrin: “On Apollo 11 in route to the Moon, I observed a light out the window that appeared to be moving alongside us. There were many explanations of what that could be, other than another spacecraft from another country or another world – it was either the rocket we had separated from or the four panels that moved away when we extracted the lander from the rocket, and we were nose to nose with the two spacecraft. So in the close vicinity, moving away, were four panels. And I feel convinced that we were looking at the sun reflected off of one of these panels. Which one? I don’t know. So technically, the definition could be “unidentified.”

Edgar Mitchell, the astronaut who participated in the Apollo 14 mission in 1971, and the sixth man to walk on the moon said “after traveling in space, I am fully confident that the aliens are watching us. I do not know how many, where and how they do it, but watching us; We see these ships at all times.

NASA’s Apollo Missions have been anything but ordinary and scientific in nature. When mankind ventured out to the Moon, a vast ocean of mysteries was ahead of us, but this ocean wasn’t explored even though we managed to land on the moon, as a matter of a fact, the ocean of mysteries seemed to have increased as there are more mysteries about the moon than we ever thought possible. Earth’s Moon has always been a much talked about subject and speculation about its secrets have always been present. We have always wondered why we have not been to the moon recently; we have all seen the mysterious images of the moon that appear to show strange constructions on the surface of the moon yet no one has reached and explored the possibilities thoroughly.

Most people believe for a fact that NASA’s Apollo missions were observed by alien beings. This theory which has been thoroughly dismissed by skeptics has been fueled by comments of Astronauts and highly ranking government officials.

In 1979 Maurice Chatelain, former chief of NASA Communications Systems confirmed that Armstrong had indeed reported seeing two UFOs on the rim of a crater. “The encounter was common knowledge in NASA,” he revealed, “but nobody has talked about until now.”

According to Armstrong, unofficially, “We were warned away.” “I cannot go into details, except to say that their ships were far superior to ours both in size and technology. They were great … and threatening “.

Many people firmly believe that not all of the images released by NASA are the actual originals taken on the moon, and many believe this is because the original images of the moon reveal structures and artifacts that would cause panic among the general public. Many believe that there are hundreds of images from NASA that have been altered in order to hide structures, moon bases, and artifact that prove there is an Alien presence on the Moon. NASA scientists Dr. Farouk El-Baz described this the best way possible when he stated that “not every discovery has been announced to the public.”

Interestingly, during the Apollo 11 mission, which was broadcast on TV, there was a gap in the live transmission that lasted for a couple of minutes. While NASA states this was due to the fact that the cameras overheated, many people believe this wasn’t the case and state that during that gap radio operators around the planet picked up a conversation between the Astronauts and NASA where Neil Armstrong talks about the presence of two giant Alien Ships that were observing the NASA astronauts from a distance. Even though NASA has never confirmed the conversation ever happened here, below, is the ‘alleged’ transcript of the conversation between NASA and Houston during the ‘Television broadcast gap’:

“Armstrong & Aldrin: Those are giant things. No, no, no – this is not an optical illusion. No one is going to believe this!

Houston: What … what … what? What the hell is happening? What’s wrong with you?

Armstrong & Aldrin: They’re here under the surface.

Houston: What’s there? (Muffled noise) Emission interrupted; interference control calling ‘Apollo 11’.

Armstrong & Aldrin: We saw some visitors. They were here for a while, observing the instruments.

Houston: Repeat your last information!

Armstrong & Aldrin: I say that there were other spaceships. They’re lined up in the other side of the crater!”

Of course, there are many other transcripts where Astronauts and ground control talk about ‘Alien Ships” that are crucial pieces of evidence in all of this.

There are dozens of theories that suggest the Moon is filled with Extraterrestrial bases and some of them are located on the far side of the moon. According to NASA Photographic Technician Donna Tietze, there are people in NASA whose job was to “airbrush and edit any anomalies found in the Moon images”.

What do you think about all of this? Is it possible that there are Alien Bases on the Moon? Could these mysterious bases (which NASA has tried very hard to keep a secret) be the reason why mankind has failed to return to the moon in recent years? And is it possible that all of the transcripts of conversations between Astronauts and NASA actually refer to Aliens and UFO’s on the Moon and in space? Let us know what you think about this subject and why YOU believe we have not been on the Moon lately. Are Aliens behind it or is it simply because we have already been there and we need to focus on going elsewhere, like Mars…?

Never-before seen images inside Tomb in Peru where alleged “Alien mummies” were found

The first ever images of the mysterious tomb—whose location has still not been disclosed— where explorers found the remains of several mummified alien bodies have been revealed.

This is the alleged entrance to the mysterious tomb, which according to Gaia.com, is where the mummified alien remains were found. Image Credit: Gaia.com

The mysterious mummified “Alien” remains are believed are believed to be around 1,700 years old and measure around 170 centimeters. The most peculiar characteristic of the mummies is that all of them have only three fingers and an extremely elongated skull.

And even though the World Congress on Mummy Studies was cited as calling the research and work “an irresponsible organized campaign of disinformation,” the group of ‘experts’ behind the discovery is convinced that they have uncovered one of the most important discoveries of the 21st century.

Interestingly, not far away from the supposed tomb, experts found a series of petroglyphs depicting strange three-fingered beings.

The entire process is followed by Gaia.com which argues that up to FIVE mummified alien bodies have been discovered in a remote tomb near Nazca Peru, and they have even released a new video revealing the first ever images inside the alleged tomb.

The video also revealed the identity of the man who is said to have stumbled across the tomb while exploring the region. The video presents the man who made the discovery only as Marion who argues to have discovered the remote tomb in an undisclosed part of Peru.

Ever since the group revealed they had discovered the alien remains, they’ve been heavily criticized by scientists and archaeologists who refuse to accept the idea that they may have found evidence of “Alien mummies” in Peru. Many experts argue that the discovery is a fabricated hoax, something skeptics have still not been able to prove.

Gaia.com has still not revealed the exact location of the Tomb, nor what else was found inside.

The video posted online only indicates that a man named Mario—no surname—made a “world-changing discovery”.

The narrator of the video tells how “Mario helped with the discovery of many well-known sites in Peru since the 1990s. He knows very well what he does, and he knows what he has found, and what he has found does not belong to any known culture in South America.”

The video footage also features comments made by Jaime Maussan, one of the most prominent UFO researchers from Mexico.

Mr. Maussan said in the video “Inside this tomb, in a secret place, he (Mario) found two sarcophaguses.”

“In one of them was just pure objects. In the second one, he found two medium-sized bodies and many little bodies.”

“The big body was outside the sarcophagus.”

Mr. Maussan said in the video how Mario would not agree to be interviewed on camera.

Interestingly, the narrator of Gaia’s video states how the discoverer of the tomb believes he has just opened around ten percent of the mystery tomb, and that many more sensational discoveries could await inside.

The video footage shows what appears to be the entrance to the enigmatic tomb and the mummified remains buried in there.

Up to five ‘strange-looking- beings were found inside the mystery tomb, somewhere in Peru. Image Credit: Gaia.com

Mr. Maussan is convinced that the discovery suggests how these ‘beings’ once coexisted with humans.

He said: “These mummies were buried in human tombs, in sacred places.”

“This means that they had coexisted with our ancestors, were not enemies and had, to a certain extent, a degree of respect between both races and cultures.”

However, despite the fact that the group has presented ‘scientific’ studies and x-ray tests, many people are unconvinced by the alleged discovery of alien mummies.

Nigel Watson, author of the UFO Investigations Manual said they were “plaster of Paris fakes.”

Experts in Mexico unearth Ancient Maya statue depicting an ‘Alien’ figure


Experts have unearthed a mysterious statue belonging to the ancient Maya civilization. The curious artifact depicts ‘an alien humanoid’ holding a human head.

The statue consists of a snake that seems to surround the figure of a small ‘ALIEN humanoid’ seen in a profile view holding a human head. Notice the strange head and oval-shaped eyes.



Directors of the museum of Xiutetelco—Puebla, Mexico— have revealed the discovery of an important archaeological piece belonging to the ancient Mayan culture, which inhabited the area sometimes during 400 AD. The ‘controversial statue consists of a snake that surrounds the figure of a small ‘ALIEN humanoid’ seen in a profile view, holding a human head. Notice the strange head and oval-shaped eyes.

The fascinating piece contains four inlays of mineral such as obsidian, turquoise, jade and shell, and was found by public workers in the Maxtaloyan community— in the upper part of the mentioned municipality—while improvement works were being carried out.

According to ‘El Sol de Puebla‘, the discovery is “a fundamental sample of the Mayan culture that for a long time inhabited the region, settling in the present day municipality, leaving important vestiges.”

Rafael Julián Montiel, in charge of the museum of Xiutetelco, said that since this area is adjacent to the archaeological zone of Cantona, among other communities, more pieces of this type could be found. In the near future—and especially during construction works—experts will monitor the area in hopes of discovering similar artifacts and preventing damage to possible future discoveries.

Likewise, the director of the museum added that Maxtaloyan is home to a volcano, similar to that of the community of ‘Los Humeros’ in the municipality of Chignautla, which has already erupted in the past, warning that there is danger of the volcano erupting and burying an entire pre-Hispanic settlement.

Monitel concluded:”At the moment, more than 5 thousand pieces have been discovered in several points of this municipality. All of them have been taken care of and are exhibited in the museum, which receives a large number of visitors who are eager to learn more about the ancestral wealth that Xiutetelco has.”

Experts have not yet concluded what exactly the newly discovered figurine represents, embodied in the ancient Mayan sculpture.

This has led to the emergence of several theories among those who have had a chance to see it in person.

Some people undoubtedly see a classic “gray” alien that holds a human head while others add that the serpent may symbolize an ancient “reptilian deity.”

Many would agree that the ancient statue clearly depicts a gray alien—with his elongated head, and oval shaped eyes.

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

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.

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.

Blood type Rh negative and Alien DNA: An otherworldly lineage of a species with amnesia?

Much has been said about Rh negative blood and theories which suggest, there is an enigmatic truth sealed away from public knowledge linking humans with Rh-negative blood to otherworldly origins.



“Who has fully realized that history is not contained in thick books but lives in our very blood?” –  Carl Jung

Humans have four general blood types: A, B, AB, and O; a classification derived from proteins found on the surface of cells which are basically designed to wage war against bacteria and viruses in the human body.

Whether Rh-negative blood is just a mutation or not is something that has caused debate among researchers. If it were a mutation, then why is it that people who possess Rh negative blood are known for having extra vertebrae? This, just as the blood type, is explained scientifically as being a ‘mutation’.

However, according to modern DNA sequencing, it is demonstrated that humanity as we know it, isn’t just ONE single ‘race’ that descended from the same ancestor in Africa, but a hybridized species, with a far more enigmatic truth behind it all.

Many questions have been raised in the discussion about Rh negative blood. If mankind did, in fact, evolve from a mutual ancient African ancestor, theories state that everyone’s blood would be compatible, but regrettably, this is not the case. This raises numerous questions that science alone has not been able to fully answer. Where did Rh-negative blood come from? And why is it that a Rh-negative mother carrying Rh positive children tries rejecting her own offspring? Is it possible that this can be explained by a rather controversial theory? A theory which suggests that humanity isn’t in fact one race, but a hybridized species.

The book was written by Robert Sepehr, Species with Amnesia: Our Forbidden History tells us more about the enigmatic blood type Rh-negative. Not only does Species with Amnesia suggest mankind is, in fact, a hybridized species, the author suggests that highly advanced civilizations have been on Earth before us, just to be destroyed by some great global catastrophe, as mysteriously, history tells us.


Sepehr argues that for each race that has died out, another has taken its place, with a selected few holding on to the memories and sacred knowledge of the past race. In our vanity, we think we have discovered some of the great truths of science and technology, but we are in fact only just beginning to rediscover the profound wisdom of past civilizations. In many ways, we are like an awakening Species with Amnesia, yearning to reclaim our forgotten past. –

The Basque people of Spain and France have the highest percentage of Rh-negative blood. About 30% have (rr) Rh negative and about 60% carry one (r) negative gene.

“There are 612 primate species and subspecies recognized by the International Union for Conversation of Nature (IUCN), and not one has Rh-negative blood”. – Robert Sepehr, Species with Amnesia: Our Forbidden History

Rh factors or ‘Rhesus factor’ was first discovered in the blood of Rhesus monkey. According to Sepehr, if mankind evolved from the same African ancestor their blood would be compatible, but it is not. Nearly 85% of all human beings have RH positive blood, yet ALL royal families have Rh-negative blood.

It seems that science cannot answer the question: Where did the Rh negatives come from? Are we, in fact, a species with amnesia? And is it possible that the truth behind our origins is far more enigmatic than what we think?

Many believe that Rh negative blood would be the legacy that the Anunnaki left on Earth among other things.

Interestingly, the negative RH strain is characteristic, for example, of the British royal family, which has generated controversial theories about a possible extraterrestrial lineage. although this hypothesis has not been confirmed, the disturbing questions it generates floats in the air: how civilized world would react to the fact that a small portion of the Earth’s population has a genetic code that has been altered in the distant past by highly advanced extraterrestrial beings.

New SETI Plan: Detect Alien Starships Powered by Black Holes

New SETI Plan: Detect Alien Starships Powered by Black Holes

Alien Starships

To detect alien civilizations, astronomers need to make some assumptions about the forms they might take — and the traces their technological artifacts could leave behind.

An outrageous new paper by a mathematician at Kansas State University does just that, positing that a sufficiently advanced alien civilization would likely build starships powered by the radiation thrown off by small black holes — and speculating that astronomers could use gamma telescopes to spot evidence of these black hole starships.

Black Holes

The basic idea, according to mathematician Louis Crane, is that a spaceship powered by a black hole would leave distinctive spillover from gamma rays. He suggests astronomers could detect that spillover using a telescope like the orbital Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope.

“If some advanced civilization already had such starships, current [very high energy] gamma ray telescopes could detect it out to 100 to 1,000 light years if we were in its beam,” Crane said in a press release. “They could be distinguished from natural sources by their steadily changing redshift over a period of years to decades.”

Game SETI Match

Crane also said, provocatively, that he believes astronomers may have already spotted several gamma ray sources “for which no natural explanation has been given.”

He also speculated about what it would mean for a civilization to be capable of creating an artificial black hole — and it sounds absolutely epic.

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

A Spacecraft Just Detected a Mysterious Alien Signal That Physics Can’t Explain

China’s Dark Matter Foray
Quantum physics has seen tremendous advances and a new hunt is in place: the search for dark energy. As this search continues by American and European scientists, China continues to close the gap in scientific prowess. For example, according to recently reported results, China-led space mission has revealed auspicious symptoms of dark matter. 

Despite no direct evidence of dark matter was found, this still remains the first observational data courtesy of China’s very first mission exclusively designed for astrophysics. Welcome the dark horse in the competition.
For centuries, the hunt for dark matter has haunted the dreams of astrophysicists. Ever since Swiss astronomer Fritz Zwicky first discovered that the mass of all of the particles within the Coma cluster of galaxies was responsible for a mere one percent of the mass required to generate sufficient gravity necessary for the galaxy in order to protect itself from dissembling. This was the spark to a flame in the search for dark matter– physicists have inferred dark matter’s existence from this seemingly invisible existence.
The Chinese spacecraft, Dark Matter Particle Explorer (DAMPE), was designed to search for the indirect decay signal of dark matter which is known as weakly interacting massive particles (WIMPS). This spacecraft was launched from the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center in the Gobi Desert, approximately 994 miles (1,600 km) west of Beijing, back in December of 2015. The primary tool of this spacecraft is a stack of thin, crisscrossing detector strips that assume a common arrangement which allow for the combination of observations in one direction. 
This spacecraft is even more phenomenal, for it is also capable of observing the energy, vector, and electric charge of particles which compose cosmic rays– especially electrons and positrons which are the former’s antimatter counterpart.

Forces of Cosmic Darkness
The currently enigmatic cosmic rays seem to originate from normal astrophysical phenomena such as supernovae wherever in the galaxy. However, if dark matter is truly consisted of WIMPs, these particles would sporadically annihilate each other and create electron-positron pairs. These pairs then become detectable by presenting themselves as excess quantity of matter amidst the amalgam of particles hailing from traditional astrophysical objects.
Within its first operative 530 days, DAMPE spacecraft detected 1.5 million cosmic ray electrons and positrons above a certain specific energy level. Usually, researchers expect to observe a smooth curve of particles-to-energy, however, previous experiments indicated towards an anomalous disruption within such a curve. The reason as to why this data is significant is because these results confirmed such a deviation.
Chang Jin, leader of the collaboration of the Chinese Academy of Science’s (CAS’s) Purple Mountain Observatory (PMO) located in Nanjing, said the following in a recent Science Magazine article: “It may be evidence of dark matter. We have a compelling anomaly in the high-energy section, it goes up and then goes down again.

We really didn’t expect this, and it cannot be explained by any of the existing knowledge of physics.” Chang Jin also noted that the DAMPE probe which was previously constructed for a three-year mission in space, is now expected to last five years, courtesy of the smooth functionality of both the spacecraft and its instruments.


However, be warned– there is no full guarantee that the DAMPE spacecraft will solve the dark mystery for good. According to the Science Magazine report and David Spergel, an astrophysicist at Princeton University, the Chinese adventure into the universe of dark matter will enrich our current understanding of cosmic ray acceleration, and will ultimately reveal mysterious, underlying physical processes located within the spatial shocks near supernovae and pulsars.
Continue to be fascinated by the universe.

Alien spaceship may lay off Florida coast, says Discovery Channel treasure hunter

In a close encounter of the submerged kind, a Discovery Channel treasure hunter said he found what could be a massive extraterrestrial structure at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean off the Florida coast.

Darrell Miklos, host of Discovery’s treasure hunting show Cooper’s Treasure, was chasing the trail of an English shipwreck for an episode of his show when he made the find 300 feet beneath the Bermuda Triangle.

“I was trying to identify shipwreck material based on one of the anomaly readings on Gordon’s charts when I noticed something that stuck out, that shocked me,” Miklos told the Daily Mail. “It was a formation unlike anything I’ve ever seen related to shipwreck material, it was too big for that. It was also something that was completely different from anything that I’ve seen that was made by nature.”

For two seasons, Miklos has used maps made by his friend, the late NASA astronaut Gordon Cooper, to hunt for shipwrecked treasure around the Caribbean Sea. In the 1960s, Cooper flew missions for the Mercury and Gemini space programs. He died in 2004, but, Miklos said, not before passing to him an alleged treasure map. Miklos said Cooper was spying on potential Russian nuclear sites based on magnetic anomalies when he used the same anomalies to make his treasure map. Cooper was also a fervent believer in extraterrestrial life, claiming to have witnessed UFOs during his time in the Air Force.

Miklos’ find, however, is a USO, an unidentified submerged object. The coral-covered structure features 15, 300-foot-long arms jutting out from a center object. Scientists on Miklos’ team said the coral could be thousands of years old. They also said coral couldn’t naturally grow in those formations.

“There’s identical formations in three different areas and they don’t look nature made, they don’t look man made, certainly nothing I’ve ever seen based on my experience and I have years of experience at doing this,” Miklos said. “We’ve identified multiple different types of shipwreck material, this doesn’t match or look anything like that.”

Miklos and the Cooper’s Treasure production company, AMPLE Entertainment, hope the find will urge the Discovery Channel to pick up the show for a third season so they can further explore the find.

“Cooper was a reliable source for treasure, then based on his findings Darrell found something that does not appear to be a shipwreck or anything that anybody has ever seen,” AMPLE founder Ari Mark said. “We want to find out exactly what it is and establish whether it ties in with Cooper’s belief that we’re not alone.”

While surprised by the structure, Miklos said he want to investigate further before saying exactly what he thinks the structure could be.

He’s not saying it was aliens? But … well, you decide.

FBI releases document with detail of Alien bodies, spacecraft and planet

7. The disks posses a type of radiant energy or a ray, which will easily disintegrate any attacking ship. They reenter the etheric at will, and so simply disappear from our vision, without trace
The crafts possess a type of radiant energy or a ray, which will easily disintegrate any attacking ship. They reenter the etheric at will, and so simply disappear from our vision, without trace

The Document declassified by the FBI states: “…Part of the disks carry crews, others are under remote control, and the bodies of the visitors, and the craft also, automatically materialize on entering the vibratory rate of our dense matter…”


Numerous government around the world are slowly coping with the idea that the worldwide population has a right to know whether or not we are alone in the universe. In fact, the disclosure movement has never been as strong as it is today with countless Military officers, government officials, and astronauts speaking out about the existence of alien life and Alien spacecraft.

Among all of the governments on the planet, it is believed that the United States have a lot of disclosure to do. Presidential Candidate Hilary Clinton has stated that if she is elected President of the United States, she would disclose all alien related documents and get to the bottom of the UFO phenomenon.

Jon Podesta, who was President Barack Obama’s right man, and Chief of Staff under the Clinton administration tweeted not long ago that one of his biggest regrets of 2014 was his failure to  “secure the disclosure of UFO files” and that “the time to pull the curtain back on this subject is long overdue. We have statements from the most credible sources, those in a position to know – about a fascinating phenomenon, the nature of which is yet to be determined.”

But despite serious attempts of disclosure, the government of the United States still maintains that they do not have knowledge of any information related to the Alien/UFO phenomenon.

However, many maintain that the reason why disclosure hasn’t happened yet isn’t because of the government. It’s very likely that such a subject might even go far beyond, extending into powerful corporations and a tight group of international elites.

Many governments around the globe have declassified a number of UFO-related documents which only proves that they have been extremely interested in the UFO phenomenon for years. However, not only have governments released classified information, agencies such as the FBI, NSA and CIA have also declassified some of their most secretive files on UFO’s and Alien life in the universe.

Getting to the bottom of the declassified FBI document, the original one can be found by visiting this link which will take you to the FBI’s vault of declassified documents.

The declassified document was addressed to “certain scientists of distinction,” to“aeronautical and military authorities,” and to “a number of public officials.”

The declassified document is a letter sent to the director of FBI in Washington from their San Francisco office, detailing UFO’s and extraterrestrials.

“Lt. Colonel _X_X_ of G2, San Francisco advised today he has no further information, and that our Seattle office is in  possession of all information known by him and is handling the matter at Tacoma, Washington.” (Source)




The letter (pages 21 & 22) outlines the following:

  • Part of the disks carry crews; others are under remote control.
  • Their mission is peaceful; the visitors contemplate settling on this planet.
  • These visitors are human-like but much larger in size.
  • They are not excarnate Earth people but come from their own world
  • The disks posses some type of radiant energy.
  • They do not come from any “planet” as we use the word, but from an etheric planet which interpenetrates with our own and is not perceptible to us.
  • The bodies of the visitors, and the craft also, automatically materialize on entering the vibratory rate of our dense matter.
  • They re-enter the etheric at will, and so simply disappear from our vision, without a trace.
  • The region they come from is NOT the astral plane but corresponds to the Lakas or Talas. Students of esoteric matters will understand these terms.

However, this is just one of the many files that have been released to the public which describe with great detail the visitations.

Many things remain a mystery. While the above-mentioned documents give fascinating details about the visitations, it still leaves us with a umber of questions like: Is it possible that three are several races of aliens out there? Are they Physical or extra dimensional?

“Yes there have been crashed craft, and bodies recovered. We are not alone in the universe; they have been coming here for a long time.” (source) (source) – Apollo 14 Astronaut, Air Force Captain and Founder of the Institute of Noetic Sciences, Dr. Edgar Mitchell.

800-Year-Old ‘Alien’ Cell Phone Found In Austria

800-year-old cell phone belonging to aliens found in Austria

Archaeologists in Austria have claimed that they have discovered an 800-year-old cell phone of alien origin. 

The object has cuneiform writing engraved on the keys and look eerily like an old Nokia phone. UFO enthusiasts have claimed that the object proves that aliens once visited the Earth with superior technology, or that time travel does exist.

Dailymail.co.uk reports:

Conspiracy website reported: ‘According to reports, during archaeological excavations at Fuschl am See, (in Salzburg), Austria, researchers unearthed a mysterious artefact from the thirteenth century with cuneiform writing that strangely resembles a cell phone.

‘This type of writing is typically found in modern-day Iran or Iraq (ancient Mesopotamia).

‘What a device like this with Cuneiform writing is doing in Austria is something that no one is able to fully understand or explain.

‘Regrettably the information about this ‘sensational’ discovery is limited.’

‘We cannot explain what it is, whether it is real or not, but it has caught our attention and we would love to know more about it.

The lack of information online, and the fact that any object with ancient cuneiform script could end up in Austria, has caused hardened conspiracy theorists to doubt the discovery.

Conspiracy theorists say that there have been several discoveries of out-of-place archaeological artifacts that challenge history.

According to the Inquisitr, they say archaeologists cover up such discoveries.

Scott Waring, editor of UFO Sighting Daily, however, is convinced this is evidence of aliens visiting ancient civilisations on Earth.

‘It is evident from this cell phone like device that someone with an advanced knowledge of the future created it,’ he wrote.

‘The language is said to go back tens of thousands of years…very cool discovery.’

The full Roswell alien interview | Ancient Code

In 1947 an alleged alien ship crashed in the New Mexico desert. Witnesses reported not only the presence of the UFO but also several wounded and dead aliens. This video shows the full Roswell Alien interview.

Considered by many ufologists as the most important event in the history of UFOs, the Roswell case has caused rivers of ink to flow, as countless stories theories, lies and denials appeared over the years.

The Roswell crash has had a great weight in popular culture and is mentioned in numerous works of fiction, as well as documentaries

Officially speaking, it all started July 4, 1947, when several farmers in the town of Roswell, New Mexico, claimed to have heard a loud explosion in the night, completely different from a lightning and thunder strike.

The next day, Gerald Anderson, a five-year-old boy who was accompanied by his father, his brother, and a cousin walking in a deserted place called Plains of St. Augustine, noticed an object in a distance reflecting light.

Interestingly, in their book, A History of UFO Crashes, UFO researchers Don Schmitt and Kevin Randle say their research shows military radar had been tracking an unidentified flying object in the skies over southern New Mexico for four days. On the night of July 4, 1947, radar indicated the object had gone down about 30-40 miles northwest of Roswell.

According to ‘A History of UFO Crashes’, eyewitness William Woody, who lived east of Roswell said he remembered being outside of his house with his father the night of July 4, 1947, when he saw a brilliant object plunge to the ground.

In the newspapers of July 8, the following headline is given: “RAAF Captures Flying Saucer on Ranch in Roswell Region” Commander Jesse Marcel was notified of the Army Air Base at Roswell, which personally went to the scene.

Wilcox called RAAF Major Jesse Marcel and a “man in plainclothes” accompanied Brazel back to the ranch where more pieces were picked up. “[We] spent a couple of hours Monday afternoon [July 7] looking for any more parts of the weather device”, said Marcel. “We found a few more patches of tinfoil and rubber.

On July 8, the RAAF issued a press release, which was immediately picked up by numerous news outlets:

“The many rumors regarding the flying disc became a reality yesterday when the intelligence office of the 509th Bomb group of the Eighth Air Force, Roswell Army Air Field, was fortunate enough to gain possession of a disc through the cooperation of one of the local ranchers and the sheriff’s office of Chaves County. The flying object landed on a ranch near Roswell sometime last week. Not having phone facilities, the rancher stored the disc until such time as he was able to contact the sheriff’s office, who in turn notified Maj. Jesse A. Marcel of the 509th Bomb Group Intelligence Office. Action was immediately taken and the disc was picked up at the rancher’s home. It was inspected at the Roswell Army Air Field and subsequently loaned by Major Marcel to higher headquarters.”

Not a saucer but a…weather balloon?

As described in the Jul, 9, 1947 edition of the Roswell Daily Record,

“The balloon which held it up, if that was how it worked, must have been 12 feet long, [Brazel] felt, measuring the distance by the size of the room in which he sat. The rubber was smoky gray in color and scattered over an area about 200 yards in diameter. When the debris was gathered up, the tinfoil, paper, tape, and sticks made a bundle about three feet long and 7 or 8 inches thick, while the rubber made a bundle about 18 or 20 inches long and about 8 inches thick. In all, he estimated, the entire lot would have weighed maybe five pounds. There was no sign of any metal in the area which might have been used for an engine, and no sign of any propellers of any kind, although at least one paper fin had been glued onto some of the tinfoil. There were no words to be found anywhere on the instrument, although there were letters on some of the parts. Considerable Scotch tape and some tape with flowers printed upon it had been used in the construction. No strings or wires were to be found but there were some eyelets in the paper to indicate that some sort of attachment may have been used.”

Some Hollow-Earthers Think An ‘Alien Race’ Lives Inside Our Planet

In case you missed it, there’s a new bizarre theory about Earth you can get on board with if you’ve decided the idea of flat Earth just isn’t for you.

Hollow Earth theory believers, think that the Earth is…well, hollow.

Rodney Cluff, author of Our Living Hollow Earth, is one of the big names in the theory, told LADbible that the Earth is only ‘around 800 miles thick from the outer surface’ and that there are entrances at the South and North Poles.

Cluff even believes that people have journeyed into the Earth and managed to send messages back out. He also says that those who live inside, regularly send out UFOs to ‘spy’ on us and see how we’re getting on.

Wondering what’s inside? Well, according to Cluff, there’s a sort of Eden-like paradise at its core, but there’s also a superior ‘alien’ race of humans – who are eight feel tall and far intellectually superior to us top Earth dwellers – giant animals, Vikings and Nazis.

According to Cluff, lost Viking colonies and Nazis who fled after the end of World War II are now living down there, immortally.

He told LADbible: “Explorers have actually gone down there. Some have returned and gone on to tell people what they saw, others have chosen to stay there because it’s so wonderful.”

A woman called Dianne Robbins, author of Messages From the Hollow Earth, even reckons she’s been sent ‘telepathic messages’ from the advanced civilizations which live inside.

However, as National Geographic points out – the Earth isn’t hollow. Sorry to break it to you.

Earth’s structure is actually made up of a bunch of layers – working from the outside in, we’ve got the rock layer, called the crust. Underneath this there are two layer of molten rock, known as the mantel. Delving even deeper, there’s the liquid outer core and even deeper than that is the solid inner core, which scientist says is a solid ball of iron.

Now – and this is where hollow Earthers can try and claim its all a big conspiracy – scientists have never been down as deep as the core, or even the mantle, but they do have tools to show that they must be there.

Will any of this be enough to convince Cluff and his fellow hollow Earthers? Probably not.

Three of the most influential Alien Species on Earth

There is a worldwide debate going on about aliens. There are people who believe that we have been visited in the past by extraterrestrial beings, and there are those who firmly disagree, suggesting that we are the only intelligent species in the universe.

While many texts that mention Gods who descended from the heavens, we still believe that what was written by ancients was just a myth. What is the truth? I guess that it depends on what you believe.

The Ancient Alien theory has become very popular in recent years. According to the Ancient Alien or, Ancient Astronaut theory, our planet has been visited by otherworldly beings for thousands if not, hundreds of thousands of years.

Today, people who have studied and analyzed the UFO and Alien phenomena on Earth agree that there are several Alien beings that are walking among humans.

Here we have three of the most important Alien species that exist, according to ufologists.

1) The Reptilians:

As the name implies, are anthropomorphic reptiles whose civilization spread from the system Alpha Draconis, so they are also known as ” Draconian”. According to ufologists, they measure about 4 meters in height and are characterized as excellent warriors and have an extremely hierarchical and competitive political – military system. They also have a great psychic power and feed on negative energies like fear and hatred, thus, they are considered ” regressive ” and were considered before as “demons.”

Many believe that the “Reptilians” are now in control of the world, camouflaging among the ruling elite on our planet.

2) The Greys:

These beings are perhaps the most famous of all the alien races. The Greys are believed to be beings with large heads, almond-shaped eyes and smaller bodies. They come from the constellation Orion and the star system Zeta Reticuli. According to ufologists and researchers, their population is in fact very small and they have numerous clones among them. They do not have souls as humans and behave as robots. The Greys are the ones responsible for the majority of abductions on our planet. The Greys are sometimes believed to serve the Reptilians. According to some, a secret pact was made in the 50’s between our government and these aliens. We received highly advanced alien technology, while they got the green light to abduct people and perform human experiments.

3) Anunnaki:

The Anunnaki are perhaps one of the best-known “alien species” together with the Greys. Annunaki is the name given to a race of extraterrestrials by the Sumerians. These beings arrived from a planet called Nibiru which allegedly approaches our solar system every 3600 years. Anunnaki means: “those who from heaven came down to earth.”

According to the Sumerian tablets translated by Zecharia Sitchin, the Anunnaki mixed their own genetic materials with early humans creating a race of slaves. These genetic experiments are believed to have occurred around 200,000 years ago. Given the technological differences and knowledge between the Anunnaki and early humans, it is believed that ancient man regarded the Anunnaki as gods.

New Telescope Detects ‘Invisible’ intelligent alien Entities on Earth

These mysterious images are allegedly proof that ‘invisible Alien entities ARE here on Earth’.

Dr Santilli states that the entity consists of lights of different colors that are pulsating and move synchronously according to a complex trajectory during the 15 seconds of exposure, including a point in which motion stopped for a few seconds, to resume thereafter.

Dr. Santilli states that the entity consists of lights of different colors that are pulsating and move synchronously according to a complex trajectory during the 15 seconds of exposure, including a point in which motion stopped for a few seconds, to resume thereafter.

Researchers seeking evidence of anti-matter in the universe firmly believe they have come across a previously unknown ‘invisible life form’ on planet Earth.

The group of researchers that discovered the mysterious entities work at Thunder Energies Corporation, an optics, nuclear physics, and energy company. According to them, these mysterious entities inhabit the Earth’s atmosphere. The company is run by controversial Harvard-educated nuclear physicist Dr. Ruggero Santilli. Dr. Santilli is regarded by many as an expert in mathematics and physics and has already been nominated for Nobel Prizes in Chemistry and Physics. Dr. Santilli developed a revolutionary telescope which was designed to spot antimatter-light in the cosmos. Contrary to conventional telescopes, which are made from Convey Lenses, the Santilli telescope is made from Concave lenses.

According to Santilli:

By using telescopes with concave lenses, known as Santilli telescopes (trademark and patent pending by the U.S. publicly traded company Thunder Energies Corporation), we review preceding evidence for the apparent existence of antimatter galaxies, antimatter asteroids, and antimatter cosmic rays. Independently from these astrophysical detections, we present for the first time evidence for the apparent existence of entities in our terrestrial environment that are solely visible via telescopes with concave lenses, while being invisible to our eyes and to conventional Galileo telescopes with convex lenses, which entities leave dark images in the background of digital cameras attached to the Santilli telescopes.

The new report, which was published in the American Journal of Modern Physics revealed a controversial finding which suggests, for the first time ever, the existence of entities in our terrestrial environment which are INVISIBLE to our eyes and conventional telescopes made from convex lenses.

The discovery

The detection of invisible terrestrial entities was published in the paper: Apparent Detection via New Telescopes with Concave Lenses of Otherwise Invisible Terrestrial Entities (ITE).

In the study, Santilli states:

“To his great surprise, unidentified yet clearly visible entities immediately appeared on the screen of the camera attached to the Santilli telescope, without any enlargement, without the same entities being visible to the naked eyes, and without any corresponding image existing on the screen of the camera attached to the Galileo telescope. This unexpected discovery triggered a novel systematic use of the pair of Galileo and Santilli telescopes, this time, for the search of entities, here called Invisible Terrestrial Entities, that are invisible to our eyes as well as to our optical instruments with convex lenses, but are otherwise fully visible via the Santilli telescope with concave lenses, and are located in our terrestrial environment.” (Source)

Florida, via the pair of 100 mm Galileo and Santilli telescopes with Sony Camera SLT-A58K set at ISO automatic and 15 seconds exposure. The entity is classified as an ISE-1 because it is solely detected via the Santilli telescope (thus emitting light with negative index of refraction), and it leaves a black image in the background of the digital camera (thus emitting light with negative energy).

The entity is classified as an ISE-1 because it is solely detected via the Santilli telescope (thus emitting light with a negative index of refraction), and it leaves a black image in the background of the digital camera (thus emitting light with negative energy).

In post-observations, Dr. Santilli identified two different types of Invisible Terrestrial Entities or ITEs, acknowledging that further types of entities may be identified in the near future. Dr. Santilli states that both types of ITEs have been independently verified by fellow scientists and their existence was confirmed in a lecture at the St. Petersburg Astronomy Club on September 25, 2015.

The first type of ITE is defined by Dr. Santilli as entities that:

  1. Are not visible to the human eye or to conventional optical instruments with convex lenses, but are otherwise fully visible via Santilli telescopes with concave lenses;
  2. exist in our terrestrial environment, rather than in deep astrophysical spaces; and
  3. Leave “dark images” in the background of digital cameras attached to Santilli telescopes.

According to reports, these entities moved slowly and rotated. Dr. Santilli states that this particular type of movement excludes impurities in their telescopes since some have already speculated that these entities were factual errors in the telescope lens or in the camera.

Santilli notes that the emission of antimatter-light does not mean that the entity is made up of antimatter because the existence of the entities within our atmosphere would imply a cataclysmic explosion due to matter-antimatter annihilation. (Source)

Santilli writes that: ITE-1 consist of matter-entities in our terrestrial environment achieving locomotion via the acquisition of antimatter in their interior with consequential use of matter-antimatter propulsion and achieve invisibility via the emission of antimatter-light as a sort of exhaust. (Source)

Santilli defines the Second Type of Entities (ITE-2) as:

  1. Are not visible to the human eye or to conventional optical instruments wish convex lenses, but are otherwise fully visible via Santilli telescopes with concave lenses;
  2. Exist in our terrestrial environment, rather than in deep astrophysical spaces; and
  3. Leave “bright images” in the background of digital cameras attached to Santilli telescopes.

Santilli continues in his study stating: “Consequently, both ITE-1 and ITE-2 have a negative index of refraction when propagating in a matter medium such as glass. Their main difference is that the former entities, also called dark ITE, carry negative energy, thus causing dark images in the background of a camera attached to Santilli telescopes, while later entities, also called bright ITE, carry positive energy, thus causing bright images despite their negative index of refraction.”

Dr. Santilli states that ITE-2’s were moving and pulsing backward and forward when they were seen by the Santilli telescopes, suggesting that they were: “conducting unauthorized surveillance of the Tampa Area solely visible with the Santilli telescope, thus confirming the need for systematic views of sensitive civilian, industrial and military installations”.

Weird alien looking creature washed up on Ozzy beach

There’s a pretty f**ken unanimous consent that we know f**k-all about the ocean and all of its denizens, but if there’s one thing we do know for sure, it’s that there are tonnes of scary little c**ts off the coast of Australia – and we haven’t even discovered ‘em all yet. You probably remember the post we did about the weird sh*t scientists found in our waters. Well, it’d be interesting to hear what they have to say about this freaky little b*stard…

This bewdiful little fella was discovered on a beach in Broome by two sheilas who were going for a bit of a stroll. A bloke who goes by the moniker of Horrorwolfe posted the spectacularly tentacular little bugger on Reddit’s ‘whatisthisthing’ subreddit.

“This was found in Broome, Western Australia. I have Googled many things, but searching for “black and white sea creature” keeps getting me colour-ins for children, which, while hilarious, is also frustrating,” he wrote.

If you ask us, it definitely fits in with some of the sci-fi-themed ideas jokingly mooted on websites like the always excellent Unilad, but after a fair bit of chat on Reddit, it seems like those legends have identified it as an armed anemone. Is there anything those f**kers can’t figure out?

Now, while your teachers and uni lecturers have probably told you not to look at Wikipedia for information, we’re gonna refute that sh*t. Wikipedia’s peer-reviewed, and while it shouldn’t be used for your doctoral thesis, it’s a great place to start your research. So…according to Wikipedia, armed anemones are found off the coast of Western Australia. Like most Ozzy critters though, don’t f**ken touch ‘em. They’ll sting the f**k out of ya.

Newly found ancient coin allegedly depicts an ‘Alien-like’ creature | Ancient Code

The ancient coin which was discovered in Egypt according to reports depicts what many believe is an alien-like creature. In the past, numerous other coins have been found which depict what many believe are flying machines.

Every once in a while we come across certain objects that make us wonder ‘what if we are not the entire story’ when it comes to history, alien life, and civilization on Earth.

Just as there are ‘bogus’ artifacts that are clearly FAKE, there are others however that make you question lots of things.

In the past, people from around the world have discovered ancient coins that are anything but ordinary. Some of them depict strange ‘flying objects,’ while others –like one of the coins posted below— seem to offer conclusive evidence that we have in fact been visited by alien lifeforms –just as the ancient astronaut theory presuposes— tens of thousands of years ago.

In earlier articles, we posted details about a strange coin which dates back to the 1680’s. Depicted on it is an object which according to many is the ultimate proof UFO’s, aka flying saucers visited our planet in the past. While some agree that it’s definitely ancient alien evidence, others disagree suggesting that we are looking at illustrations of shields, and not flying machines on coins which date back hundreds of years.

Over the past few years, skeptics have come up with their own theories disproving the one proposed by UFO hunters saying that the object depicted on the 17th-century coin could be a drifting mushroom or flower, or even a shield.

However, a newly found coin –which by the way has all the right ingredients for being called out as a fake— has woken interest among skeptics and UFOlogists who are debating about its origin and authenticity.

According to thesun.co.uk, “during a house renovation in Egypt, someone came across a mysterious coin that seems to show the head of an extra-terrestrial being, with huge hollow eyes, a bald hea, and thin cheeks.”

Mysterious Earth writes that: “A group of people who worked on the renovation of a house in southern Egypt found a number of very rare coins.”

While any have rushed forward suggesting this is by far the best evidence of alien visitations, we need to hold on for a minute here and look at other possibilities.

While the coin is sensational to say the least, it doesn’t necessarily mean its authentic, but for that matter neither fake. The truth is that with all findings of a similar controversy, people rush to make conclusions without considering all possibilities.

The truth is that detailed information about the coin ‘depicting an alien-like creature’ is extremely limited. The only information we have is that it was discovered among ‘other ancient coins’ during a house renovation in Egypt. Nearly all of these coins have an inscription in Latin, which obviously mean they did not originate in Egypt, but most likely somewhere else.

The coin with the mystery creature on its side has “OPPORTUNUS Adest” carved on the back, Latin for “its here in due time.”

Whether or not the newly found coin depicting an alien-like creature is real or not remains a profound mystery. The most likely conclusion is that the coin is a modern forgery since NO EXPERTS have actually verified the item, analyzed it or seen it. All the information comes from different websites which can’t agree on what’s what.

While the story is fascinating to say the least, it’s hard to conclude if it’s real.

The truth is that several coins have been found in the past which have proven to be real, and depict what many interpret as FLYING OBJECTS. That, however, is up to each person’s interpretation. What some see as flying saucers, others may identify as shields or other objects.

Nevertheless, these coins are extremely interesting and make you wonder WHAT IF, they are true. In regards to the coin depicitng the alien-like creature, I’d have to say it’s just another modern forgery until someone proves otherwise.

Let me know what you think and post your comments below!

‘Super Earth’ That Could Hold Alien Life Has Just Been Discovered

Super Earth That Could Hold Alien Life Has Just Been Discovered Artist’s impression of the super Earth exoplanet LHS 1140bWikimedia

A little-known planet beyond our solar system has been found and it could be a scaled-up version of Earth.

New research found the distant exoplanet, known as K2-18b, and have hailed it a ‘super Earth’ made up of rock, just like our planet.

K2-18b is an ideal candidate to hold liquid water on its surface, and thus it has great potential for alien life.

Researchers from the University of Texas, Scarborough, and the University of Montreal also found that the ‘super Earth’ has a neighbour.

The name of this neighbour? You guessed it, K2-18c.

This is could be another rocky super Earth, but is unlikely to host alien life according to the scientists.

Both the planets orbit the red dwarf star K2-18, which is located 111 light years from Earth in the constellation Leo.

The new study used data collected by the European Southern Observatory which is based in Munich, Germany.

Lead author Ryan Cloutier said:

Being able to measure the mass and density of K2-18b was tremendous, but to discover a new exoplanet was lucky and equally exciting.

If you can get the mass and radius, you can measure the bulk density of the planet and that can tell you what the bulk of the planet is made of.

With the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) we can probe the atmosphere and see whether it has an extensive atmosphere or it’s a planet covered in water.

The researchers set out to find whether K2-18b was a bigger version of Earth made mostly of rock, or a scaled-down version of Neptune made mostly of gas.

Super Earth That Could Hold Alien Life Has Just Been Discovered 23385UNILAD imageoptim Universe faceNASA

The team found it was a mostly rocky planet with a gaseous atmosphere, like that of Earth’s, or it was a water planet with a thick layer of ice on top of it.

The newly described K2-18c is closer to its star and probably too hot to be in the habitable zone.

K2-18b will be a prime target for NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope when it launches in 2019.

Co-author of the study, Professor René Doyon, said:

There’s a lot of demand to use this telescope, so you have to be meticulous in choosing which exoplanets to look at.

K2-18b is now one of the best targets for atmospheric study, it’s going to the near top of the list.

In other NASA-related alien news, they just received a response from the void, and believers everywhere are losing their collective minds.

After 37 years of inactivity, the NASA spacecraft Voyager 1 fired up its thrusters for the first time in nearly four decades all the way over in interstellar space.

This incredible – and unsuspected – triumph means Voyager 1 can once again communicate with Earth, from 13 billion miles away.

Suzanne Dodd, project manager for Voyager at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory said:

With these thrusters that are still functional after 37 years without use, we will be able to extend the life of the Voyager 1 spacecraft by two to three years.

Looking for some hot stuff? I fired backup thrusters for the first time in 37 years, and they worked like a champ. This could extend my life 2-3 years. https://t.co/N0pF3nvOkOpic.twitter.com/V35vMbrHCr

— NASA Voyager (@NASAVoyager) December 2, 2017

The thruster test went so well, the team will likely do a similar test on the TCM thrusters for Voyager 2, which is also on course to enter interstellar space, likely within the next few years.

‘There is no God’: Stephen Hawking thought alien life or time travel more likely than divine creator — RT World News

More than six months after Hawking passed away at the age of 76, his family have pulled together what they believe to be some of the scientist’s most compelling answers to mysteries of the universe. His closing piece provides remarkable insight, outlining black hole theories and his fear that humans could be surpassed by artificial intelligence – a topic he spoke widely on in his final years.

In one chapter of “Brief Answers to the Big Questions” Hawking tackles the thorny issue of God and gives a resounding answer. “There is no God. No one directs the universe,” he writes. “For centuries, it was believed that disabled people like me were living under a curse that was inflicted by God. I prefer to think that everything can be explained another way, by the laws of nature.”

Providing his thoughts on what lies beyond the Earth’s atmosphere, Hawking argues that there is more out there than what we know.

“There are forms of intelligent life out there… We need to be wary of answering back until we have developed a bit further.”

In the book Hawking does not rule out the possibility of doing a Back to The Future. “Travel back in time can’t be ruled out according to our present understanding,” he writes.

Hawking’s final writings were released at a press conference earlier this week attended by his children Lucy and Tim.

Lucy Hawking said the final book is a “carefully curated” piece containing answers to questions regularly asked of the world famous physicist. She told London’s Science Museum how her father maintained an enormous archive, theories which were painstakingly put together to form the scientist’s final publication.

“He was regularly asked a set of questions and what we wanted to do with this book is bring together the most definitive and authentic answers he gave,” she said. “He would be absolutely delighted. We all just wish he was here to see it.”

Legendary physicist Stephen Hawking did not believe in the existence of God, his final book reveals. The posthumous manuscript also delves into alien theories and the dangers of artificial intelligence.

Alien-Hunting Scientists Find 72 New Fast Radio Bursts Thanks To New Artificial Intelligence

Fast radio bursts (FRBs) are extremely powerful energetic emissions from the distant universe that last just a few milliseconds on average. The origin of most FRBs is still unclear because they are one-off events. But one of them, FRB 121102, has been repeating itself, allowing researchers to find out a little bit more about these mysterious occurrences.

Last year, astronomers used the Green Bank Telescope to discover more FRBs from this source and found 21 new bursts. But more was hiding in the data. Researchers used a new machine-learning algorithm to reanalyze the 2017 data and discovered 72 new bursts that weren’t spotted in the original analysis. The discovery has been accepted for publication in the Astrophysical Journal.

The signals are thought to be coming from a neutron star located in a dwarf galaxy roughly 3 billion light-years from Earth. The neutron star is likely in a highly magnetized environment like the remnant of a supernova or near a black hole. Thanks to the latest analysis, there have now been roughly 300 FRBs detected from this one source, a great step forward in understanding its nature.

“This work is only the beginning of using these powerful methods to find radio transients,” lead author Gerry Zhang, from the University of California, Berkeley, said in a statement. “We hope our success may inspire other serious endeavors in applying machine learning to radio astronomy.”

The new findings show that there is no regular pattern in the data, at least if the pattern is longer than 10 milliseconds. We currently cannot probe shorter periods. The observations, which lasted about five hours, show that the FRB source goes through some quieter periods and some more frenzied periods. The analysis shows that researchers might have underestimated just how many FRB signals might be out there.

“This work is exciting not just because it helps us understand the dynamic behavior of fast radio bursts in more detail, but also because of the promise it shows for using machine learning to detect signals missed by classical algorithms,” added co-author Andrew Siemion, director of the Berkeley SETI Research Center and principal investigator for Breakthrough Listen, the initiative to find signs of intelligent life in the universe.

Breakthrough Listen has a particular interest in these types of algorithms. It could allow the project to become more thorough in finding potential radio signals from alien civilizations.

Experts claim there are 3 hostile Alien species visiting Earth



Misinterpreted throughout the centuries as ‘Gods’, here are three of the most hostile Aliens that according to ‘experts’ have been visiting Earth since time immemorial.


The idea that we are not the only life forms in the universe has captured the imagination and interest of not only scientists but philosophers, historians and other experts throughout the centuries.

One of the first to speak out about alien life was an Italian Dominican friar, philosopher, mathematician, poet, and cosmological theorist Giordano Bruno.

He is remembered for his cosmological theories, which conceptually extended the then novel Copernican model.

Bruno 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 (a philosophical position known as cosmic pluralism).

Bruno also insisted that the universe is in fact infinite and could have no celestial body at its “center”.


Bruno said: “There are countless suns and countless earth’s all rotating around their suns in exactly the same way as the seven planets of our system. We see only the suns because they are the largest bodies and are luminous, but their planets remain invisible to us because they are smaller and non-luminous. The countless worlds in the universe are no worse and no less inhabited than our earth. For it is utterly unreasonable to suppose that those teeming worlds which are as magnificent as our own, perhaps more so, and which enjoy the fructifying rays of a sun just as we do, should be uninhabited and should not bear similar or even more perfect inhabitants than our earth.”


Giordano Bruno was burned at the stake in Rome’s Campo de’ Fiori in 1600.

However, he wasn’t the only one to have spoken out about alien life. Throughout the centuries, countless scholars have wondered whether or not there are others out there.


“There is abundant evidence that we are being contacted, that civilizations have been monitoring us for a very long time. That their appearance is bizarre from any type of traditional materialistic western point of view. That these visitors use the technologies of consciousness, they use toroids, they use co-rotating magnetic disks for their propulsion systems, that seems to be a common denominator of the UFO phenomenon.” (source) – Dr. Brian O’Leary, Former NASA astronaut and Princeton physics professor.


Today, at a time when technology has allowed us to explore the universe like never before, many people are convinced that we are not alone. Not only that, but millions of people around the globe are convinced that until this day, we are being visited by beings that are not from our planet.

Advanced civilizations which are thousands of years ahead of us—technologically—who have played an extremely important role in the development of humanity throughout the centuries.

So who are these beings? Are they benign? Are they Hostile? If so, where are they?

Considering the fact that there are at LEAST hundred billion galaxies just as old as the Milky Way, and all of them have an average of 100 BILLION Suns per galaxy, most of them with planets similar to Earth orbiting them, one can say that intelligent life surely must exist somewhere.



Many authors would agree that it’s safe to say that there is at least 1 intelligent civilization per galaxy. There are at LEAST one hundred billion galaxies as the milky way. Do the math.

UFOlogists and paranormal researchers agree that throughout the years Earth has been visited, and there is ample historical evidence which supports this claim.

Confused as ‘Gods’, numerous ancient cultures around the globe indicate how ‘extremely advanced beings’ visited Earth, coming from the Stars.

The Anunnaki

Are the Ancient Anunnaki the missing link in our amnesic history?

If we take a look at ancient Mesopotamian history we will find evidence of the so-called Anunnaki.

The Anunnaki are believed to be the creators of Man. These mighty Gods left Earth in the distant past, saying that one day, they shall return to Earth. Curiously, if we look at ancient cultures around the globe, most of their Gods—Creator Gods—left Earth and promised to return one day.

According to later Assyrian and Babylonian myth, the Anunnaki were the children of  and , brother and sister gods. The Anunnaki appear in the Babylonian creation myth, Enuma Elish. The Anunnaki are mentioned in The Epic of Gilgamesh when Utnapishtim tells the story of the flood. There are four primary gods: Anu, Enlil, Enki and Ninhursag.

Many researchers firmly believe that based on numerous discoveries, the Anunnaki (Sumerian: “those who came down from the heavens), a highly advanced civilization from an elusive planet in our solar system, came to Earth, landing in the Persian Gulf some 432,000 years ago. They created man as a slave race to help them mine gold. Eventually, the Anunnaki left Earth, leaving their creation behind promising to return one day.

The Greys

The Grey Aliens are one of the most famous alien species in the 21st century. There are two types of Grey Aliens. The Small Greys are said to possess extremely large heads, almond-shaped eyes, and small bodies. The small greys are said to be clones of the other species known as the Tall Greys. According to ufologists and researchers, their population is in fact very small which is why they have numerous clones among them.

They have almond-shaped eyes and are most commonly associated with abductions. Many ‘experts’ in ufology firmly believe mankind even has a secret pact with these beings.

They are said to come from the Constellation of Orion and the Star System Zeta Reticuli.

According to many, their population is small, and they have a great number of clones walking among them. These beings are said to behave like robots and lack souls.

According to reports, sometime during the 1950’s the government of the US made a secret pact with the Grey Aliens. We received extremely advanced alien technology for study, while they got the green light to abduct people and perform human experiments.

There are some statues in ancient Sumeria, and we can also find cave drawings in Europe and in Australia, where the heads feature a triangular shape with the big roundish eyes.

Cave paintings in the Kimberley region of Australia—believed to be thousands of years old—could be the earliest depictions of the Greys ever discovered.

According to local legends, the carvings are of ancient spirits called the Wondjina who appeared during dream time to create the landscape and influence its inhabitants, a possible connection to the Greys?

Reptilians

Throughout history, we have heard tales about these strange looking creatures that apparently live among us on Earth.  There are so many stories about reptilian entities both in the past and in the present as if these beings were since the beginning of time present on our planet. History talks about them and modern day sightings are becoming more and more frequent. There have been stories of beings half-human, half-reptile for centuries, but is this just the result of human imagination or is there something more about these strange beings that have conquered our History texts.

Looking back in history, we find several tales about strange creatures, which were worshiped by our ancestors. In South America, Quetzalcoatl, Kukulkan are some of the gods which are well, reptilian beings worshiped as gods. Quetzalcoatl is a Mesoamerican deity whose name comes from the Nahuatl language and means “feathered serpent” The worship of a feathered serpent is first known documented in Teotihuacan in the first century BCE or first century CE.

According to ufologists, they measure about 4 meters in height and are characterized as excellent warriors and have an extremely hierarchical and competitive political – military system. They also have a great psychic power and feed on negative energies like fear and hatred, thus, they are considered ” regressive ” and were considered before as “demons.”

Scientists Detect Huge Number Of Unexplained Signals From Alien Galaxies

Telescopes in Australia have picked up a huge number of unexplained signals coming from deep in space.

According to researchers, the number of ‘fast radio bursts’ – bright flashes of radio waves from outer space that are picked up on Earth – have nearly doubled.

The recent signals are the closest and brightest of the radio bursts that have ever been seen.

Fast radio bursts are blasts of incredible energy, equivalent to the amount released by the sun in 80 years, that last for just a few milliseconds, before disappearing, and come from an unknown source.

Dr Ryan Shannon, from Swinburne University of Technology and the OzGrav ARC Centre of Excellence, and lead author of the study said, as per the Independent:

We’ve found 20 fast radio bursts in a year, almost doubling the number detected worldwide since they were discovered in 2007.

Using the new technology of the Australia Square Kilometre Array Pathfinder (ASKAP), we’ve also proved that fast radio bursts are coming from the other side of the Universe rather than from our own galactic neighbourhood.

Some people have suggested the radio bursts are from extra terrestrial intelligence, while scientists from Harvard University suggested they could be from transmitters used to push objects or ships across the universe.

Others have suggested they could be generated by black holes or stars colliding with one another.

The new examples of the radio flashes, however, provide scientists with more opportunities to study the phenomena.

Dr Shannon added:

Each time this happens, the different wavelengths that make up a burst are slowed by different amounts.

Eventually, the burst reaches Earth with its spread of wavelengths arriving at the telescope at slightly different times, like swimmers at a finish line.

Timing the arrival of the different wavelengths tells us how much material the burst has travelled through on its journey.

And because we’ve shown that fast radio bursts come from far away, we can use them to detect all the missing matter located in the space between galaxies – which is a really exciting discovery.

The number of new radio flashes detected is thanks to new technology being used on the telescopes, allowing them to have a bigger field of vision across the sky.

Co-author of the study, Dr Jean-Pierre Macquart, from the Curtin University node of the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research (ICRAR), said that the bursts travel for billions of years, occasionally passing through clouds of gas, before reaching Earth.

Scientists are hoping to use the new equipment to pinpoint the source of the flashes more precisely. If they are able to do so, and if they are able to attribute them to one galaxy in particular, scientists will be able to understand more about their origin and why they are created.

The flashes should also be able to allow scientists to understand more about the early universe, as the blasts would have occurred a long time ago, before their signal reached Earth.

People Think They Have Discovered An Alien Spaceship On An Island Off Antarctica

An island off the coast of Antarctica. A frozen landscape. A mysterious trail starting from a mountain. A strange rock-like object at the end of it. You might think avalanche, but some people on the Internet think differently. For them, an alien spaceship has crashed there (cue The X-files theme music).

This elaborate “theory” was posted in a video by UFO-truther YouTube channel SecureTeam10 and is based on satellite images from Google Earth. They manage to pull a 13-minute discussion on how this cigar-shaped object not only crash-landed there but also damaged the nearby peak from which the trail originates.

“What appears to me at least to be some sort of massive elongated or cigar-shaped object that at some point – and we don’t know when – came to a screeching halt in the snow leaving behind it an almost 1,000-meter-long [3,280-foot-long] trail,” said the author in the video.

“We can see this massive object is directly next to this huge mountain peak here and you’ll notice that leading back from the trail that this object created, moving across the snow and ice, it appears as if there’s some damage that has been done to the side of this mountain where we can see this wave of debris extending outwards from the mountain itself.”

The avalanche on South Georgia Island that people think is a spaceship crash site. Google Earth

I have many questions. How did the spaceship hit the mountain to create a limited-debris area but manage to move hundreds of meters more? Why is the spaceship already covered in snow and ice when the trail is still perfectly visible? How can anyone think that this is anything other than an avalanche?

The location of the “crash” is on South Georgia Island, part of a British Overseas Territory in the South Atlantic Ocean that also includes the South Sandwich Islands. The territory is inhabited by just a couple of dozen people, including government officials and scientists and support staff from the British Antarctic Survey.

“[South Georgia] is the exact same surface structure as Antarctica, mountainous, covered in ice and snow. Nothing there. Completely barren,” explains the video. The island has 26 native species of vascular plants and is home to many bird species including king penguins, albatrosses, and more. Seals and whales are often seen in the waters surrounding the island too. It is often visited by cruise ships and is the resting place of Anglo-Irish polar explorer Ernest Shackleton.

UFO Hunters: Massive Alien Fleets seen by NASA satellites orbiting the Sun | Ancient Code

According to UFO hunters, and based on numerous satellite images, massive alien fleets are flying in ‘tactical’ formation near Earth and through the inner solar system towards the sun. Some researchers have even come forward claiming that our sun may act as some sort of massive Stargate, used by super advanced alien civilizations to travel across the cosmos. 

The ‘alarming’ discovery has been made by UFO hunter Streetcap1, who analysed images of the sun captured by NASA’s SOHO (Solar and Heliospheric Observatory) Satellite.

The SOHO satellite is, in fact, a joint project between the European Space Agency and NASA. The observational satellite is located in a halo orbit around the Sun-Earth L1 gravitational point an keeps an eye on our solar system’s star nonstop.

According to Streeetcap1, the alleged image captured by cameras on board SOHO show a MASSIVE alien fleet of UFO’s flying past Earth, heading towards the sun.

“I have seen too many ‘UFO fleets’ now to be in any doubt that this is a reality,” wrote the UFO hunter.

According to Streetcap1, the intimidating armada of alien spaceships appear to be traveling in a regular and highly ordered group of formations, which are indicative of a highly organized military fleet.

“They are flying in small group formation which might suggest military craft,” Streetcap1 explains. “I have seen too many ‘UFO fleets’ now to be in any doubt that this is a reality.

UFO Hunter Scot Warring from UFO sightings daily commented on the images:

“This UFO fleet was caught by Streetcap1 of YouTube. It is an awesome find,” he writes in the latest update to his blog UFO Sightings Daily.

“I have seen thousands of SOHO sun photos, but never one like this,” he continues. “Here we see fleets of ships in groups of two, three and even four. This is a fleet, which is not a good sign.”
“For a flee  this size to be passing Earth, something big is about to happen,” Waring writes. “Yes, you can bet money that they know we are here, but they are so technologically advanced that we are no threat to them. Thus, they ignore us. We see 60-80 ships here that the SOHO image caught. Many more it didn’t catch.”

The debate continued on YouTube among hundreds of users who left their comments on the video.

“It’s like a space battle..”

“Incredible; but why…?

“Weird!”

“But they are huge how do you explain [this].”

In the distant past, numerous weird objects have been spotted near the sun, visible on SOHO satellite images.

While UFO hunters are convinced these are interstellar starships from elsewhere in the universe, skeptics argue that we are looking at malfunctions in the images. Processing errors and dead pixels present in some of the images.

UFO hunters, however, do not agree.

In the past, researchers have wondered about the numerous anomalies present near the sun and have ventured out to ask whether it is possible that our sun is a massive Stargate.

This video below by Nassim Haramein supports the idea that the sun acts as a massive portal or Stargate.

Scientists say mysterious object may be alien spacecraft

It is possible the “Oumuamua” space object that went past the sun in 2017 is an alien object sent toward Earth to observe our civilization.

Scientists said it has high speeds and an unusual trajectory, as it has come from outside of our solar system.

The interstellar visitor appears to be the size of a stadium, reports say. Scientists believe its shape and speed set it apart from the usual comets and asteroids they see.

A pair of Harvard researchers are raising the question of whether this object belongs to aliens, and their comments will appear in a Nov. 12 edition of “The Astrophysical Journal Letters”.

Oumuamua Is 1st Ever Alien Traveler Detected In Solar System, & Its Mystery Is Baffling Experts

A space rock, one scientists have named Oumuamua, recently made a visit to our solar system. Scientists have been collectively losing their minds studying the asteroid, but it turns out that may not be an accurate description of it. 

NASA

As it turns out, Oumuamua may be coated in a thick layer of organic material, which astronomers believe is protecting a store of ice within the rock. This material could have acted like a shield to prevent the ice from boiling and evaporating when it passed close to our Sun, making it more of a comet than the asteroid we thought it was.

That’s because of the technical differentiation between the two; asteroids are rock and metal fused together into a solid piece, whereas comets are a mixture of ice and rocks instead. In fact, astronomers believe that most of the objects travelling in interstellar space are more likely comets than asteroids. After all, when our solar system was forming, the larger planets tossed out trillions of ice-rock bodies to the outer edges of the system. In which case, it’s likely planets on other star systems did the same.

That’s the reason astronomers first called Oumuamua a comet when they pinpointed that it was a visitor here from outside our solar system. Then they reclassified it as an asteroid when they didn’t find signs of the traditional comet tail of gas and dust. Now, after finding clues to what might be ice within, Oumuamua is a comet once more. At least, it’s something like a comet even if it doesn’t behave like one.

Of course, there’s still a lot more astronomers could learn about Oumuamua. If they could get to it that is. Not only is the rock body a tony one, it’s also currently heading away from Earth, meaning it’s going to be impossible to see with a telescope soon. All they can do, is continue to analyse the data they currently have, in the hopes of making any new connections.

Einstein just helped us find a massive alien world

His theory of relativity taught scientists how to uncover a planet 3 times the size of Jupiter.

Good news for all you astronomy junkies: scientists just discovered an alien planet (granted, every planet other than Earth is an alien planet, but whatever, it sounds cool) three times the size of Jupiter.

The scientists are calling it MOA-2016-BLG-227Lb because scientists are terrible at naming things. We at From the Grapevine are going to call the place Moa.

Researchers from countries around the world, including the U.S., Israel and Japan, teamed up to find Moa. They used a technique called gravitational microlensing, which is basically when scientists spot a planet by noticing the way light bends around it.

That’s the Roman god Jupiter looking mad because he’s not the biggest planet anymore. (Photo: Zwiebackesser/Shutterstock)

We’ve got our favorite scientist, Albert Einstein, to thank for this particular technique – his General Theory of Relativity explains how stars’ gravities can bend light waves. Gravitational microlensing is great for finding stars and planets that aren’t all that bright or are really far away. Scientists think the technique can help them figure out how planets form.

So, what’s the deal with Moa? The researchers say it’s a “super-Jupiter mass planet” circling a star in the “Galactic bulge,” a bunch of stars packed together like sardines 21,000 light years away from us. Also, we’re now going to have to change Moa’s nickname to Super Jupiter because it’s too perfect to pass up.

That’s not a ton of information – man, would we like some photos, preferably of aliens – but the scientists say they want to study Super Jupiter more, ideally with the Hubble Space Telescope.

An Alien observer: Was the Moon set in place 4.53 billion years ago? | Ancient Code

The Moon used to rotate at a faster rate in the distant past, and for some reason, its rotation slowed down and became tidally locked with Earth. There are traces of titanium, uranium 236, and neptunium 237 on the Moon, these elements have not been found to occur naturally.

Mankind has always been fascinated by Earths loyal satellite, the Moon. Believed to have been ‘formed’ around 4.5 billion years ago, Earth’s Moon is one of the largest ‘natural’ and most mysterious satellites in the solar system. Many details about the Moon have led numerous researchers and scientists to question its real purpose. Why is the Moon in synchronous rotation with Earth, always showing us the same face? And why is it so important for life on Earth?

In the 21st century, there are many UFOlogists around the world who speculate that the Moon is actually a giant base where extraterrestrials survey mankind’s progress. While this theory might sound absurd to many readers, there are quite a few details about the Moon which are simply put, inexplicable.

Robin Brett, a scientist from NASA stated, “It seems easier to explain the non-existence of the Moon than its existence.

Set in place 4.53 billion years ago?

According to studies, if our Moon did not exist, life on Earth would have probably had a hard time surviving. For example, its gravitational influence produces ocean tides and body tides on Earth. Mysteriously, The Moon’s current orbital distance is about thirty times the diameter of Earth and is exceptionally large relative to Earth: a quarter its diameter and 1/81 its mass. Even more interesting is the fact that the Moon used to rotate at a faster rate, but early in its history, its rotation slowed and became tidally locked.

But if the Moon was ‘engineered’ as some suggest and is in fact, an artificial ‘structure’ wouldn’t there be something on the Moon that could uncover its mystery? Well, if we look closer, there are a couple of very interesting things. According to studies, the Moon has a solid shell of around 20 miles made of highly resistant materials such as titanium, uranium 236, mica, neptunium 237Definitely, elements that you would not expect to find “inside” the Moon.

In the 1970’s Mikhail Vasin and Alexander Shcerbakov from the Soviet Academy of science wrote an article called: “Is the Moon the creation of Alien Intelligence?

How is it possible that the surface of the Moon is so hard and why does it contain minerals like Titanium?

Mysteriously, there are some lunar rocks that have been found to contain PROCESSED METALS, such as Brass, Mica and the elements of Uranium 236 and Neptunium 237 that have NEVER been found to occur naturally. So how did they get there?

Uranium 236 is a radioactive nuclear waste which is found in spent nuclear and reprocessed Uranium. More interestingly, Neptunium 237 is a radioactive metallic element and a by-product of nuclear reactors and the production of Plutonium.

There are some lunar rocks that have been found to contain ten times more titanium than “titanium-rich” rocks on planet Earth. Here on Earth, we use Titanium in supersonic jets, deep-diving submarines, and spacecraft. It’s unexplainable. Dr. Harold Urey, Nobel Prize winner for Chemistry said he was “terribly puzzled by the rocks astronauts found on the Moon and their Titanium content. The samples were unimaginable and mind-blowing since researchers could not account for the presence of Titanium.

Even more fascinating is the incredible orbit of the Moon. It is the only known Moon in the solar system that has a stationary, nearly “perfect” circular orbit. It’s a fact that the Moon does not spin like a natural celestial body. In other words, our Moon does not share any characteristics with other Moons found in our Solar System. If it wasn’t strange enough, from any point on the surface of our planet, only one side of the Moon is visible.

What is the Moon hiding… and why have we stopped going to the Moon?

Harvard Scientists Suggest Weird Interstellar Object Oumuamua Could Be an Alien Solar Sail

In the months that followed, multiple follow-up observations were conducted that allowed astronomers to get a better idea of its size and shape, while also revealing that it had the characteristics of both a comet and an asteroid.

Interestingly enough, there has also been some speculation that based on its shape, ‘Oumuamua might actually be an interstellar spacecraft (Breakthrough Listen even monitored it for signs of radio signals!).

new study by a pair of astronomers from the Harvard Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics (CfA) has taken it a step further, suggesting that ‘Oumuamua may actually be a light sail of extra-terrestrial origin.

starshot2 e1476900323550(Breakthrough Starshot)

The study – “Could Solar Radiation Pressure Explain ‘Oumuamua’s Peculiar Acceleration?”, which recently appeared online – was conducted by Shmuel Bialy and Prof. Abraham Loeb. Whereas Bialy is a postdoctoral researcher at the CfA’s Institute for Theory and Computation (ITC), Prof. Loeb is the director of the ITC, the Frank B. Baird Jr. Professor of Science at Harvard University, and the head chair of the Breakthrough Starshot Advisory Committee.

To recap, ‘Oumuamua was first spotted by the Pan-STARRS-1 survey 40 days after it made its closest pass to the Sun (on September 9th, 2017).

At this point, it was about 0.25 AU from the Sun (one-quarter the distance between Earth and the Sun), and already on its way out of the Solar System. In that time, astronomers noted that it appeared to have a high density (indicative of a rocky and metallic composition) and that it was spinning rapidly.

While it did not show any signs of outgassing as it passed close to our Sun (which would have indicated that it was a comet), a research team was able to obtain spectra that indicated that ‘Oumuamua was more icy than previously thought.

Then, as it began to leave the Solar System, the Hubble Space Telescope snapped some final images of ‘Oumuamua that revealed some unexpected behavior.

After examining the images, another international research team discovered that ‘Oumuamua had increased in velocity, rather than slowing down as expected. The most likely explanation, they claimed, was that ‘Oumuamua was venting material from its surface due to solar heating (AKA outgassing).

The release of this material, which is consistent with how a comet behaves, would give ‘Oumuamua the steady push it needed to achieve this boost in velocity.

To this, Bialy and Loeb offer a counter-explanation. If ‘Oumuamua were in fact a comet, why then did it not experience outgassing when it was closest to our Sun?

In addition, they cite other research that showed that if outgassing were responsible for the acceleration, it would have also caused a rapid evolution in ‘Oumuamua’s spin (which was not observed).

Basically, Bialy and Loeb consider the possibility that ‘Oumuamua could in fact be a light sail, a form of spacecraft that relies on radiation pressure to generate propulsion – similar to what Breakthrough Starshot is working on. Similar to what is planned for Starshot, this light sail may been sent from another civilization to study our Solar System and look for signs of life. As Prof. Loeb explained to Universe Today via email:

“We explain the excess acceleration of `Oumuamua away from the Sun as the result of the force that the Sunlight exerts on its surface. For this force to explain measured excess acceleration, the object needs to be extremely thin, of order a fraction of a millimeter in thickness but tens of meters in size. This makes the object lightweight for its surface area and allows it to act as a light-sail. Its origin could be either natural (in the interstellar medium or proto-planetary disks) or artificial (as a probe sent for a reconnaissance mission into the inner region of the Solar System).”

Based on this, Bialy and Loeb went about calculating the likely shape, thickness, and mass-to-area ratio that such an artificial object would have. They also attempted to determine whether this object would be able to survive in interstellar space, and whether or not it would be able to withstand the tensile stresses caused by rotation and tidal forces.

What they found was that a sail that was only a fraction of a millimeter thick (0.3-0.9 mm) would be sufficient for a sheet of solid material to survive the journey through the entire galaxy – though this depends greatly on ‘Oumuamuam’s mass density (which is not well-contrained).

Thick or thin, this sail would be able to withstand collisions with dust-grains and gas that permeate the interstellar medium, as well as centrifugal and tidal forces.

As for what an extra-terrestrial light sail would be doing in our Solar System, Bialy and Loeb offer some possible explanations for that. First, they suggest that the probe may actually be a defunct sail floating under the influence of gravity and stellar radiation, similar to debris from ship wrecks floating in the ocean. This would help explain why Breakthrough Listen found no evidence of radio transmissions.

Loeb further illustrated this idea in a recent article he penned forScientific American, where he suggested that ‘Oumuamua could be the first known case of an artificial relic which floated into our Solar System from interstellar space.

What’s more, he notes that lightsails with similar dimensions have been designed and constructed by humans, including the Japanese-designed IKAROS project and the Starshot Initiative with which he is involved.

“This opportunity establishes a potential foundation for a new frontier of space archaeology, namely the study of relics from past civilizations in space,” Loeb wrote.

“Finding evidence for space junk of artificial origin would provide an affirmative answer to the age-old question ‘Are we alone?’. This would have a dramatic impact on our culture and add a new cosmic perspective to the significance of human activity.”

On the other hand, as Loeb told Universe Today, ‘Oumuamua could be an active piece of alien technology that came to explore our Solar System, the same way we hope to explore Alpha Centauri using Starshot and similar technologies:

“The alternative is to imagine that `Oumuamua was on a reconnaissance mission. The reason I contemplate the reconnaissance possibility is that the assumption that `Oumumua followed a random orbit requires the production of ~10^{15} such objects per star in our galaxy. This abundance is up to a hundred million times more than expected from the Solar System, based on a calculation that we did back in 2009. A surprisingly high overabundance, unless `Oumuamua is a targeted probe on a reconnaissance mission and not a member of a random population of objects.”

According to Loeb, that there’s also the fact that ‘Oumuamua’s orbit brought it to within 0.25 AU of the Sun, which is a good orbit for intercepting Earth without experiencing too much solar irradiation. In addition, it came to within 0.15 AU of Earth, which could have been the result of orbital corrections designed to facilitate a flyby.

Alternately, he states that it is possible that hundreds of such probes could be sent so that one of them got close enough to Earth to study it. The fact that the Pan STARRS-1 survey barely detected ‘Oumuamua at its closest approach could be seen as an indication that there are many other such objects that were not detected, bolstering the case for ‘Oumuamua being one of many such probes.

Considering that astronomers recently concluded that our Solar System has likely captured thousands of interstellar objects like ‘Oumuamua, this opens the possibility for future detections which could help prove (or disprove) the case for an interstellar light sail.

Naturally, Bialy and Loeb acknowledge that are still too many unknowns to say with any certainty what ‘Oumuamua really is. And even if it does happen to be a piece of natural rock, all other asteroids and comets that have previously been detected have had mass-to-area ratios orders of magnitude larger than the current estimates for ‘Oumuamua.

That, and the fact that radiation pressure appears to be capable of accelerating it, would mean that ‘Oumuamua represents a new class of thin interstellar material that has never before been seen. If true, that opens up a whole new set of mysteries, such as how such material was produced and by what (or whom).

While it has been beyond the reach of our telescopes for almost a year now, ‘Oumuamua is sure to remain the subject of intense study for many years to come. And you can bet astronomers will be on the lookout for more of them! After all, “the Ramans do everything in threes”, right?

NASA Administrator: Alien Life Is More Likely Than We Thought

Thomas Zurbuchen, the associate administrator for NASA’s Science Mission directorate, says it’s likely that there’s life beyond Earth.

“Is there life beyond Earth? I think the answer is yes — but we just don’t know,” Zurbuchen said during an interview at Boston University. “The simple reason I think so is because we underestimated nature when we doubted whether water or complex molecules would exist beyond Earth. Each one of those is much easier to achieve than we thought possible.”

Numbers Game

It’s common logic: space is so incomprehensibly vast that somewhere out there, the right conditions for life must exist.

But the fact remains that earthlike conditions in outer space don’t guarantee life, and University College London biochemist Nick Lane has argued that we don’t have any sort of statistical justification for that assumption — arguments like Zurbuchen’s are extrapolations from the singular data point of life on Earth.

Pale Blue Dot

But whether Zurbuchen’s hunch is right or wrong, he argues that it won’t make a bit of difference if we don’t first make sure that Earth can continue to sustain life.

“No matter what the answer to that question is,” Zurbechen replied to a question about off-world settlements, “we have to keep Earth livable. It’s unsafe to do otherwise. I do think about terraforming other planets a small percentage of the time, but much more time I spend focused on ways to keep the Earth livable and wonderful — not the other way around.”

If we don’t address the ongoing damage caused by global climate change, Zurbuchen seems to be implying, any space-exploring extraterrestrials won’t find anything more than the remains of our society.

NASA Captures Stunning Images of ‘Nuclear Superbubbles’ in an Alien Galaxy

Scientists discovered nuclear “superbubbles” thousand of light years wide that act like particle accelerators 100 times more powerful than the Large Hadron Collider.

Two of the mysterious globular structures were spotted in the galaxy NGC 3079, located 67 million light years from Earth, according to a new study published in The Astrophysical Journal, led by University of Michigan astronomer Jiangtao Li.

The “bubbles,” which are made of high-energy particles, stretch out across 4,900 light years on one side of the galaxy, and 3,600 light years on the other. To put that into perspective, the Sun’s influence extends for about two light years, so these superbubbles are around 2,000 times longer, on average, than our solar system.

Astronomers aren’t sure what is blowing out the superbubbles, but it must be an extremely forceful process. The extreme properties suggest that they are produced by cataclysmic events like starbirth, or jets emitted from the galaxy’s central supermassive black hole. The structures may also be a source of cosmic rays, which are high-energy particles that originate outside the solar system and constantly hit Earth’s atmosphere.

The new research compiles spectacular images of the superbubbles in optical, X-ray, and radio light. The visuals were captured by NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory over the course of four observational periods. The earliest images were taken way back in 2001 and 2006, and the last two were produced in 2018.

This superbubble phenomena is rarely observed in the universe, but it is not totally unique to NGC 3079. Our own Milky Way galaxy has its own super-sized version of these structures, known as “Fermi bubbles.”

These energetic balloons stretch out over a total of 50,000 light years on either side of our galaxy’s supermassive black hole, which is called Sagittarius A*. Astronomers think they were formed when a large mass, such as a gas cloud, was partially ingested by Sagittarius A*. Some portion of the object subsequently got belched out as high-energy jets, sculpted by the black hole’s magnetic field.

A similar sequence of cosmic consumption and regurgitation may be responsible for the NGC 3079 superbubbles. In fact, the NGC 3079 structures could help scientists contextualize the extraordinary dynamics that created the Fermi bubbles. Though they are smaller and likely younger than the Milky Way’s bubbles, the NGC 3079 bubbles are easier to observe in full because they are located at a distance from our galaxy.

Li and his colleagues hope that future observations will shed light on the processes that form the superbubbles, and whether they play a role in the abundance of cosmic rays speeding around the universe.

“Future deeper radio/X-ray observations, careful measurement, and modeling of the magnetic field, as well as theoretical modeling of the superbubble in different scenarios, will help […] to better understand the origin of galactic nuclear superbubbles,” the authors wrote in the study.

Genetic tests reveal tragic reality of Atacama ‘alien’ skeleton

When the mummified remains of a six-inch humanoid were found in an abandoned mining town in Chile’s Atacama desert 15 years ago, speculation on its origins ran wild. The skeleton, which was sold to a private collector in Spain, was so bizarre it appeared in a documentary as potential evidence for alien life.

Now scientists in California have extracted DNA from the mummy’s bones and pieced together the real and tragic story of the individual, known as Ata. Rather than a visitor from another world, Ata was a girl who appears to have been stillborn, or to have died immediately after birth, with devastating mutations that shaped her extraordinary body.

Ata’s remains were found in 2003 in La Noria, an old nitrate-mining town, reportedly wrapped in white cloth tied with a violet ribbon. The skeleton was remarkable in many ways. While only six inches tall, the bones had some features of a child aged six to eight. Instead of the usual 12 pairs of ribs found on humans, Ata had only 10 pairs. The head was an elongated cone shape.

The curious remains caught the eye of Garry Nolan, a professor of microbiology and immunology at Stanford University in California, who offered to study the specimen. In 2013, he concluded that Ata was human, but the reasons for the dramatic deformities were far from clear.

Nolan and his colleagues at the University of California in San Francisco have now published their analysis of Ata’s full genetic makeup. From DNA extracted from the bones, they found that Ata was a girl who carried mutations in at least seven genes that are known to cause major skeletal malformations or accelerate their development. Taken together they explain Ata’s size, abnormal ribs and skull shape, and the apparently advanced age of her bones. Beyond her skeletal malformations, Ata may have had a condition called congenital diaphragmatic hernia, a relatively common life-threatening birth defect in which the diaphragm does not develop properly. Further analysis found that Ata’s DNA most closely resembled that of other Chileans.

The discovery of mutations that may have aged Ata’s bones could in future help patients with skeletal problems, Nolan said. “Understanding the process might allow us to develop therapies or drugs that drive bone development for people in, say, catastrophic car crashes,” he said. Details of the work are published in Genome Research.

Nolan believes that Ata was stillborn or died immediately after her birth, perhaps 40 years before her remains were discovered. “She was so badly malformed as to be unable to feed. In her condition, she would have ended up in the neonatal ICU, but given where the specimen was found, such things were simply not available,” he said.

“While this started as a story about aliens, and went international, it’s really a story of a human tragedy. A woman had a malformed baby, it was preserved in a manner and then ‘hocked’ or sold as a strange artefact. It turns out to be human, with a fascinating genetic story from which we might learn something important to help others. May she rest in peace.”

Record Breaker: 4 Huge Alien Planets Spotted Around Baby Star

In an astronomical first, four gigantic planets have been detected around a very young star, a new study reports. 

The star in question is CI Tau, which lies about 500 light-years from Earth. CI Tau is just 2 million years old and is still surrounded by a swirling clump of dust and gas known as a protoplanetary disk

The star was already known to host one planet, a world about 10 times more massive than Jupiter that circles CI Tau once every nine Earth days. This planet, called CI Tau b, was the first “hot Jupiter” ever discovered around such a young star. [Gallery: The Strangest Alien Planets]

In the new study, a team of researchers observed CI Tau and its disk with the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA), a network of radio telescopes in the Chilean Andes. ALMA spotted three additional gaps in the disk, at distances of 13, 39 and 100 astronomical units (AU) from the star, the astronomers report. (One AU is the Earth-sun distance — about 93 million miles, or 150 million kilometers). 

So it seems that CI Tau b has three siblings. And these newfound worlds are big, too: The team’s work suggests the innermost of the three is about as massive as Jupiter, while the outer two have Saturn-esque heft. 

Astronomers had never spotted four gas-giant planets around such a young star before, study team members said. And the orbital range — the outermost planet lies about 1,000 times farther from CI Tau than the innermost world does — is extreme as well, the researchers added.

Indeed, it’s unclear how the two outermost planets were able to take shape.

“Saturn-mass planets are supposed to form by first accumulating a solid core and then pulling in a layer of gas on top, but these processes are supposed to be very slow at large distances from the star,” study lead author Cathie Clarke, of the Institute of Astronomy at the University of Cambridge in England, said in a statement. “Most models will struggle to make planets of this mass at this distance.”

It’s also unclear what role, if any, the sibling planets played in driving CI Tau b to its super-tight orbit, study team members said. Observing the bizarre system further with other telescopes may help answer these and other questions, study team members said.

The new paper was published this month in The Astrophysical Journal Letters.

Tesla: A rare glimpse into Tesla’s Alien messages | Ancient Code

While most people –especially young generations—are unaware of this, Nikola Tesla is one of the greatest scientific minds and inventors the world has ever known. Even though he is entirely absent from out history books, he is a man that created the foundation for today’s technology and lifestyle. But in addition to all of his inventions, Nikola Tesla was among the first people on Earth who claimed to have intercepted alien messages from outer space.

Everything from radio to remote controlled vehicles, Nikola Tesla laid down the necessary foundation for NASA and many other scientific agencies around the world, not to mention that he wanted to give the world unlimited free energy a hundred years ago.

“There is a difference between progress and technology, progress benefits mankind. Technology does not necessarily do that.” –Nikola Tesla

Nikola Tesla is the man who harnessed lightning; he was a true genius, and he envisioned new technologies far before their time and even claimed to have had contact with extraterrestrial beings.

At the age of 28, Nikola Tesla moved to the United States and started working for Thomas EdisonEdison and Tesla became quickly rivals with different ideas; Edison was experimenting with direct current and Tesla with alternating current, competing to win the right to harness Niagara Falls and whoever controlled Niagara Falls practically controlled the power to the entire Northeast.

Tesla’s inventions went far beyond electricity. He made groundbreaking discoveries such as wireless radio communications, turbine engineshelicopters(although it was Da Vinci who first had the idea), fluorescent and neon lightstorpedoes and the X-ray among others. By the time of his death, Tesla held nearly 700 worldwide patents.

But in addition to all of the above, Tesla firmly believed we were not ALONE in the UNIVERSE.

In an interview he gave to Time at the age of 75, Tesla said:

I think that nothing can be more important than interplanetary communication. It will certainly come some day, and the certitude that there are other human beings in the universe, working, suffering, struggling, like ourselves, will produce a magic effect on mankind and will form the foundation of a universal brotherhood that will last as long as humanity itself.

Tesla seemed extremely convinced about alien life elsewhere in the cosmos.

In fact, not many people are aware of the fact that in 1900, while he was working at his famous Colorado Springs Laboratory, Nikola Tesla ANNOUNCED that the intercepted EXTRATERRESTRIAL radio signals.

Despite the fact that the scientific community then thought Tesla was crazy, radio signals were something that was an unfamiliar concept to anyone but Tesla, leading to the obvious conclusion that Tesla was greatly misunderstood in his time.

Perhaps one of the most noteworthy subjects we need to mention when talking about Tesla and ‘Aliens’ is the infamous Black Knight Satellite which wasn’t confirmed and tracked by researchers around the globe until 1932.

Interestingly, Tesla believes he had spotted it in 1899 while working in his Colorado Springs laboratory, he started hearing mysterious rhythmic sounds on his radio receiver.

On one occasion Nikola Tesla wrote:

I can never forget the first sensations I experienced when it dawned upon me that I had observed something possibly of incalculable consequences to mankind. I felt as though I were present at the birth of a new knowledge or the revelation of a great truth. Even now, at times, I can vividly recall the incident, and see my apparatus as though it were actually before me. My first observations positively terrified me, as there was present in them something mysterious, not to say supernatural, and I was alone in my laboratory at night; but at that time the idea of these disturbances being intelligently controlled signals did not yet present itself to me.

The changes I noted were taking place periodically, and with such a clear suggestion of number and order that they were not traceable to any cause then known to me. I was familiar, of course, with such electrical disturbances as are produced by the sun, Aurora Borealis and earth currents, and I was as sure as I could be of any fact that these variations were due to none of these causes. The nature of my experiments precluded the possibility of the changes being produced by atmospheric disturbances, as has been rashly asserted by some. It was some time afterward when the thought flashed upon my mind that the disturbances I had observed might be due to an intelligent control. Although I could not decipher their meaning, it was impossible for me to think of them as having been entirely accidental. The feeling is constantly growing on me that I had been the first to hear the greeting of one planet to another. . . . I was not merely beholding a vision, but had caught sight of a great and profound truth. –Talking with planets by Nikola Tesla.

In addition, Nikola Tesla believed he had picked up signals that originated on Mars, and here is a statement he gave on what he believed he had discovered:

Others may scoff at this suggestion…[of] communicat[ing] with one of our heavenly neighbors, as Mars…or treat it as a practical joke, but I have been in deep earnest about it every since I made my first observations in Colorado Springs… At the time, there existed no wireless plant other than mine that could produce a disturbance perceptible in a radius of more than a few miles. Furthermore, the conditions under which I operated were ideal, and I was well trained for the work. The character of the disturbances recorded precluded the possibility of their being of terrestrial origin, and I also eliminated the influence of the sun, moon, and Venus. As I then announced, the signals consisted in a regular repetition of numbers, and subsequent study convinced me that they must have emanated from Mars, the planet having just then been close to the earth.Wizard: The Life and Times of Nikola Tesla : Biography of a Genius.

In fact, according to the American Physical Society Physics, Nikola Tesla had concluded that the mysterious signals, or the strange unnatural object the signals were originating from, was extraterrestrials, or at least their effort to communicate with Earth.

In conclusion, we understand that Nikola Tesla stated on multiple occasions that he thought he intercepted signals from intelligent beings from outer space. Tesla indicated that even the most primitive or simple form of communications –like the eventual exchange of numbers— could, in fact, be an intelligible radio transmission originating from advanced extraterrestrial beings.

Alien artifacts from ancient Egypt found in Jerusalem & kept secret by Rockefeller Museum

Alien enthusiasts have been left fascinated by reports of ancient Egyptian artifacts that were discovered in the home of famous Egyptologist Sir William Petrie. The artifacts are believed to be the ultimate proof of alien contact and are said to rewrite not only Ancient Egyptian history but the history of the entire planet. Like many other ‘controversial objects’ these mysterious artifacts were also kept a secret.

Evidence of Ancient Aliens
So, where do we start?

The reports of the alleged artifacts captured the internet as you would expect.

According to Intellihub News, the alleged ‘otherworldly’ artifacts were discovered in a secret room in the home of Sir William Petrie.

According to UFO researchers, among the artifacts were some that contained 'otherworldly' symbols.
According to UFO researchers, among the artifacts were some that contained ‘otherworldly’ symbols.

It is sad that the renowned Egyptologist had found ultimate proof of alien life before he died in 1942, but instead of sharing the discovery, for some reasons he decided to hide the artifacts away in his home.

Now, according to reports, these items have been taken by the Rockefeller Museum and like many other discoveries that contradict mainstream history, these too could be hidden from society.

Interestingly, the Inquisitr decided to dig further and was able to confirm that the prestigious Petri Museum of Egyptian Archaeology has in their possession a grandiose collection of ancient Egyptian and Sudanese items which include ancient Egyptian “firsts,” such as the “oldest linen” and “oldest dress” from ancient Egypt (5,000 B.C.).

The Petri Museum also displays some of the earliest examples of Metallurgy in Ancient Egypt.

However, as the Inquisitr indicates they were NOT able to confirm that the museum has displayed ‘Alien Artifacts’ discovered in Egypt, nor recovered from a secret room in Petrie’s residence in Jerusalem.

But this may be because these items contradict history and mainstream beliefs say ufo researchers who believe in the story. Like many other things that go against the beliefs of mainstream scholars, these artifacts too have been locked away from society.

As always, sensational stories require sensational evidence.

According to the editor of Intellihub News, the Ancient Egyptian artifacts found in Petrie’s residence in Jerusalem directly link the ancient Egyptian civilization to an advanced civilization, not from Earth.

 Among the artifacts –now in possession of the Rockefeller museum— are two alleged mummified bodies of approximately four feet in height. Some have even speculated that these mummified bodies could be the remains of ‘alien’ visitors.

According to reports from Intellihub News, the physical features of the alleged mummified bodies indicate their possible alien nature. According to the editor of the website, the anomalous skeletons have “stereotypical alien “elongated heads, large eye sockets, and long spiral arms.”

But as if the mummified bodies weren’t enough, it is said that among the artifacts were “highly advanced” mechanical devices and a golden spherical object with strange writings.

Intellihub News’ editor indicates that the high-tech devices have “an intricate mechanism which is surrounded by gold spiral tubing that has several small gold orbs and crosses attached to it.”
Is it possible that the alleged artifacts are part of ‘interstellar navigational devices’?

Intellihub News points towards Abydos and the temple built by Seti I, and his son Ramses II, where we can observe the so-called Flying machines of Abydos.

There, we are able to ‘spot’ what seem to be representations of modern day vehicles like Helicopters, submarines, and aircraft.

The only problem is that these inscriptions are believed to be thousands of years old.

Scientists believe these are not aircraft but the result of a psychological phenomenon called pareidolia.

However, there are more mysteries when it comes to Ancient Egypt and Aliens.

But is it just because we would love to find a connection between one of the greatest civilizations to inhabit Earth and alien visitors?

Well, it is a possibility, but there are more interesting details worth looking at.

An Ancient Egyptian text called the Tulli Papyrus mentions a fascinating story during the reign of Thutmose III when an alleged mass UFO sighting occurred over ancient Egypt.

The ancient text reads (translated):

“In the year 22, of the third month of winter, sixth hour of the day […] among the scribes of the House of Life it was found that a strange Fiery Disk was coming in the sky. It had no head. The breath of its mouth emitted a foul odor.

 Its body was one rod in length and one rod in width. It had no voice. It came toward His Majesty’s house. Their heart became confused through it, and they fell upon their bellies. They [went] to the king, to report it. His Majesty [ordered that] the scrolls [located] in the House of Life be consulted. His Majesty meditated on all these events which were now going on.

After several days had passed, they became more numerous in the sky than ever. They shined in the sky more than the brightness of the sun, and extended to the limits of the four supports of heaven […] Powerful was the position of the Fiery Disks.

The army of the King looked on, with His Majesty in their midst. It was after the evening meal when the Disks ascended even higher in the sky to the south. Fish and other volatiles rained down from the sky: a marvel never before known since the foundation of the country. And His Majesty caused incense to be brought to appease the heart of Amun-Re, the god of the Two Lands. And it was [ordered] that the event [be recorded for] His Majesty in the Annals of the House of Life [to be remembered] for ever.”

Reagan and Gorbachev Agreed to Pause the Cold War in Case of an Alien Invasion

At one point during the 1985 Geneva Summit, President Ronald Reagan and Soviet Premier Mikhail Gorbachev took a break from negotiations to take a walk. Only their private interpreters were present and for years, the details of what they talked about were kept secret from both the Russian and American public. But during a 2009 interview with Charlie Rose and Reagan’s Secretary of State George Shultz, Gorbachev revealed that Reagan asked him point-blank if they could set aside their differences in case the world was invaded by aliens.

Shultz was talking about the Lake Geneva summit and mentioned the two leaders ducked out of a meeting to take a walk to a nearby cabin.

“I wasn’t there…,” Shultz said before Gorbachev cut him off.

“From the fireside house, President Reagan suddenly said to me, ‘What would you do if the United States were suddenly attacked by someone from outer space? Would you help us?’

“I said, ‘No doubt about it.'”

“So that’s interesting,” Gorbachev said to much laughter.

As far as we know, aliens never tried to take over the planet during the 1980s, so Reagan and Gorbachev’s informal agreement wasn’t put to the test. But perhaps unsurprisingly for a president whose nuclear deterrent plan was nicknamed “Star Wars,” Reagan was a big science-fiction fan. He had grown up reading Edgar Rice Burroughs’ epic science-fiction novels, whose characters included John Carter of Mars and Tarzan, Lauren Davis reports for io9.

Once in awhile, Davis continues, Reagan’s nerdy tastes in books influenced how he governed. During his tenure in the White House, Reagan relied on The Citizens’ Advisory Council on National Space Policy, a think tank made up of astronauts, engineers and even science-fiction writers like Robert Heinlein and Jerry Pournelle, for advice on future technology and the emerging importance of space policy. In fact, the Council even helped to draft parts of Reagan’s first speech introducing the “Star Wars” program.

It’s hard to say how serious Reagan was when he asked Gorbachev if the Soviets would help fight off an alien invasion, but he was far from the first government official to mull over out-of-this-world fighting tactics. During the 1950s and ‘60s, a group of U.S. Army engineers was tasked with thinking up theoretical weapons that could be used to defend non-existent lunar bases. And recently, Anatoly Zak reports for Popular Mechanics, the Russian government revealed that in the 1970s, the Soviet Almaz space station was not only armed with a top-secret space cannon, but it was also test-fired.

NASA Scientist Says Alien Lifeforms May Have Already Visited Earth – LADbible

A NASA scientist has said that he reckons aliens may have already visited planet Earth. I’m not going to lie – if he says it happened, I’m inclined to agree, so I’d like to take this opportunity to say that, I for one, welcome our new alien overlords.

Silvano P Colombano from the space agency’s intelligent systems division says that the current idea we have about aliens is too narrow and that if aliens have popped down, we’re not talking little green men or Paul but maybe something that looks wildly different to what we consider extra terrestrials.

In a report, he wrote: “I simply want to point out the fact that the intelligence we might find and that might choose to find us (if it hasn’t already) might not be at all be produced by carbon based organisms like us.”

He urged scientists to look past our ‘assumptions’ about alien life, writing: “We need to re-visit even our most cherished assumptions.

“How might that change the above assumptions about interstellar travel?

“Our typical life-spans would no longer be a limitation (although even these could be dealt with multi-generational missions or suspended animation), and the size of the ‘explorer’ might be that of an extremely tiny super-intelligent entity.

“Considering further that technological development in our civilisation started only about 10,000 years ago and has seen the rise of scientific methodologies only in the past 500 years, we can surmise that we might have a real problem in predicting technological evolution even for the next thousand years, let alone six million times that amount!”

NASA is currently searching the universe for signs of life through its Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence – SETI – programme.

He also added that the current radio waves being analysed might be out of date, so has called for ‘speculative physics’ with roots in solid theories but with wriggle room to ‘stretch possibilities as to the nature of space-time and energy’ and to ‘consider the UFO phenomenon worthy of study’.

If all of this isn’t enough to fully melt your brain, then our pal Colombano said that not every UFO sighting is easily explained away.

The report continued: “In the very large amount of ‘noise’ in UFO reporting there may be ‘signals’, however small, that indicate some phenomena that cannot be explained or denied. If we adopt a new set of assumptions about what forms of higher intelligence and technology we might find, some of those phenomena might fit specific hypotheses, and we could start some serious enquiry.”

So, wait, what you’re saying, Colombano…. is it that… the truth is out there?

Two ‘alien’ skulls discovered in Russia, a secret Nazi institution and the search for the origin of Mankind

In what sounds as a scene from an Indiana Jones movie, reports from Russian newspapers “Komsomolskaya Pravda” and “Rossiyskaya Gazeta” indicate that a briefcase and two Alien-like skulls were discovered in the mountains of the Caucasus region of Adygeya. Among the briefcase, its finders found two skulls belonging to an unknown creature. Ahnenerbe was probably the most secret society within the SS dedicated to the study of the occult and the supernatural forces on Earth. According to researchers, it is likely that members of the SS were interested in the mysteries of the ancient dolmens and the high amounts of radioactivity present in the region known as the Kishinski canyon.

However, researchers believe It is also possible that they were searching for the golden Kuban Rada, lost somewhere in the region during the Russian Civil War (1917-1923). (The Kuban Rada (Russian: Кубанская Рада; Ukrainian: Кубанська Рада) was the supreme organization of the Kuban Cossacks, that represented all the heads of the districts.) (source)

Among the items, researchers also discovered a German-made map of the territory of Adygeya believed to have been created in 1941. Experts have been left amazed by the accuracy and completeness of the map.

Historians know many details of operation Wehrmacht Edelweiss which took place at the peak of Elbrus, the highest mountain in Europe, located in the republic of Kabardino-Balkaria in the Russian Caucasus. However, what the exact purpose of this mysterious organization in the mountains of Adygea was, remains a profound mystery, as does the connection between the mysterious briefcase, its contents, and the two anomalous skulls which do not have a humanoid aspect.

The Ahnenerbe: A mysterious institutions with mysterious goals

The Ahnenerbe was an institute in Nazi Germany purposed to research the archeological and cultural history of the Aryan race. The institute conducted experiments and launched numerous expeditions around the world attempting to prove that mythological Nordic populations ruled the world in the distant past. The name Ahnenerbe means “inherited from the forefathers.”

The Ahnenerbe wanted to know everything related to the mysterious and unknown on our planet, they made several expeditions traveling to Tibet, Antarctica and the Caucasus and had a huge interest in the UFO phenomenon, searching for the ultimate and absolute power.

It is well known to the world that Hitler’s Germany was actively engaged in developing new types of weapons believed to have been capable of changing the course of the war. This is why over 300 specialists from different sectors worked in the Ahnenerbe, all brilliant and well-educated minds with great scientific knowledge.

Interestingly, only a few know that, years before the war began, specialists in mountain roads from a German military construction organization offered to help the USSR to build a road between Pitsunda and Ritsa (from the coast of the Black Seanow in Abkhazia), as a mean of international cooperation.

After completing the work, the German specialists were discovered to have died mysteriously, their car plunged into the gap in a curve. Until today, tourists flock to Lake Ritsa through the tunnels built by the Germans.

Russian Water of Life

It was found out later that the construction of this strategic road had very mysterious reasons behind it. It turned out that hydrologists from Ahnenerbe established that the composition of the water taken from a source located in a cave under the lake Ritsa was ideal for making human blood plasma. “The” living water “from Abkhazia was transported in silver containers first to the coast, then by submarine to the bottom of Constance, and finally by plane to Germany,” explains Bormotov, professor of the department of economics and management from Maikop State Technological University. There were even plans to build tunnels for submarines, leading from the sea to Ritsa, but these plans were interrupted by the war.

It is well-known that the 49th Mountain Corps of the Wehrmacht, who made the ascent to Mount Elbrus stayed in the Adygeya region. In the valley of the Belaya River near the Cossack village of Dajóvskaya, stood  the Westland  SS regiment, and located  between the rivers Pshish and Psheja tank regiments of Germania were installed. In autumn 1942, the airport of Maikop was visited by the 3rd Squadron of the 14th reconnaissance group, which had twin-engine reconnaissance aircraft dubbed FW-189, which equipped with the most sophisticated spy instruments and were considered by many as flying secret laboratories.

“That was more than enough to protect the undercover investigations which were possibly performed by the Ahnenerbe in the mountains of Adygea,” says Bormotov. “Maikop was the city where the Wehrmacht had its headquarters. From there the command of all German military campaign in the Caucasus was organized.

In autumn of 1942, in the mountains of Adygea, there wasn’t any defined military defensive line, and there are reports of soldiers wondering deep into the mountains. It is not clear why troops were deployed on Mount Pshekish in August 1944 when the frontline had already moved far to the west. What was it that the Nazis did not have time to finish on Mount Pshekish? Can these mysterious movements be explained and related to the investigations of Ahnenerbe researchers?” asks himself Bormotov.

Many people assume that the Nazis were interested in the dolmens the prehistoric constructions attributed to the Atlantean builders located in the region, and “the gateway to parallel worlds.”

Even today people are still talking about unusual events in the area. Recently there was an article in the local press which spoke about the discovery of a giant skeleton of three meters in height which belonged to an unknown human race in the Borjomi canyon.

The skulls of the Gods

Russian media writes that the mysterious skulls were found in a cave on Mount Bolshoi Tjach nearly two years ago by a group of explorers led by ethnographer Vladimir Melikov.

According to Melikov, the creature of one of the skulls was unlike anything known to man, and it walked on two legs. Melikov states that among the most mysterious features of the skulls is the absence of cranial vault and jaws. The eye sockets are unusually large having facial features resembling humans.

Even when compared with the skull of a bear, it’s hard to think that you do not have in your hands the remains of an alien creature, said Melikov.

Paleontologists in Moscow weren’t too excited when they received photographs of the mysterious skulls, they merely acknowledged that the skulls are unlike anything they had ever seen, suggesting that the skulls could have been submerged and exposed to sand for long periods of time, something that could have altered the shape of the skulls, but, if this were the case, how can we explain the nearly identical ‘deformations’ in both skulls which seem to follow similar patterns?

Speculations or reality? The Ancient Anunnaki in Russia

Some researchers went as far and made connections between the mysterious skulls to the Ancient Anunnaki. After looking at the images, many suggest that these mysterious skulls were sought by researchers from the Ahnenerbe since they belonged to the visitors from the Stars, the gods, and creators of the human race, and researchers from the Ahnenerbe knew exactly what they were looking for.

“We can build all kinds of versions and conjectures, but the truth is that the remains found in the mountains of Aguideya will force you to re-think everything you know,” he said Bormotov to Russian newspapers.

In conclusion, we can say that these mysterious findings are something that definitely makes you wonder what else is out there. It makes you think about other secret institutions that had similar ideas and plans as the Ahnenerbe. The skulls and items discovered in Russia will remain as some of the most mysterious findings made in the last decade, and the truth behind them seems far more mysterious than what we can imagine.

Shocking videos ‘show massive Alien Motherships’ near the sun claim ‘Experts’ | Ancient Code

Several videos which have been uploaded to YouTube—one of them has been watched over 1,300,000 times—promise to be the ultimate evidence proving Alien spaceships are common around our sun, and there’s something odd going on.

One of the videos—which according to many is beyond spectacular—depicts a mysterious massive object next to the sun that seems to be ‘refueling’.

The intriguing videos show what paranormal researchers and UFOlogists are referring to as a MASSIVE alien mothership ‘refueling’ at the sun. Skeptics disagree and suggest nothing in this video even suggests an alien presence.

An interesting comment posted on YouTube questions what if it is not an alien spaceship but something entirely different: “It could be a living creature that feeds off the stars imagine how big this would be our entire planet would be below its notice and it could destroy our solar system never realizing we were here the universe is beyond calculation so it’s quite possible there are entities of that size out there somewhere but what does that make us? Insignificant!”

In the distant past, numerous mysterious objects have been spotted around the Sun. Many ufologists claim that these objects are the ultimate proof that our Sun acts like a cosmic stargate and that extraterrestrial vehicles are anything but uncommon around it.

Some of the many objects seen near the sun include ‘angel-like’ UFOs, Massive Cube-shaped objects and even cigar-shaped UFOs.

Skeptics disagree pointing to the fact that the alleged ‘alien spaceships’ are in fact pixelation or image processing errors, and that our sun is not a GIANT ‘cosmic gas station’.

One interesting image related to the sun and strange objects is the one posted below. According to Ufologists: it clearly shows a massive alien spaceship ‘shooting’ out of the sun.

The video features countless comments from different perspectives. Some people agree we’re are looking at a massive alien spaceshipand the truth about aliens is being hidden from the public by governmentswhile others disagree and point to more rational explanations that could end the mystery behind these ‘massive’ objects around the sun.

One user wrote: “that ship may be bigger than our planet. Such technology can only be obtained by super intelligent species that have perhaps lived for billions of years.”

Others pondered about Aliens and whether or not they were hostile: “consider this…if they were hostile (presuming we are talking about extraterrestrials) they likely would have already made a move. What would be stopping them?”

But what if they (ET of course) is using the Sun as a giant portal? One user wrote: “They are not refueling. They travel through the sun’s core. Scientists have no real idea what kind of travel means you attain when you harness the power of the core of the sun.”

Many users agreed that if aliens are really here, they are most likely peaceful: “You do realize that if they wanted to cause us harm they would have already? Think about the level of existence that these beings would be living on, they wouldn’t give a crap about us, we’re probably just one of millions of other civilizations they’ve come across…We would mean nothing to them.”

What the object really is…

Metabunk seems to prove its nothing close to alien spaceships. An article titled “Explained: Giant Black Sphere Hovering Near the Sun [Coronal Prominence Cavity]” explains what UFOlogists misinterpreted as a massive UFO.

What this is though is just something that’s unfamiliar to most people, but something that solar scientists have been aware of for some time, a transitory cavity in the solar plasma field, known as a coronal prominence cavity, or polar crown cavity. Often associated with Coronal Mass Ejections (CMEs). This does appear to be a quite interesting one, with attached vortex. But that’s all it is. Not a giant space ship sucking fuel from the sun.

You see a lot of these types of “odd-thing-near-sun” things on YouTube, based off video feed from the Solar Dynamics Observatory. That’s basically because the SDO is new (just two years old), and people are not used to the amazing displays the sun puts on. Some of which will be new to science as this the the best view we’ve ever had of the sun. (Source)

What are your thoughts, do you agree with Metabunk? Or do you believe Advanced alien civilizations really exist and travel constantly through our solar system? Do you believe they even ‘stop by’ our Sun every once in a while? Or are these alleged spaceships nothing more than image processing errors and pixelations?

‘Alien’ Signals Are Finally Pinpointed to a Stellar Nursery 2.4 Billion Light Years Away

A new research has pinpointed a nursery of young stars some 2.4 billion light years away as the cause of strange fast radio bursts detected on Earth. These fast radio bursts – which each lived just a few milliseconds – come from thick neutron stars just 20 kilometers (12 miles) in size in the constellation Auriga.
Originally researchers were puzzled where these bizarre bursts of energy were originating from with some guessing it could be a sign of alien life trying to make contact.

Scientists now consider the young stars are 6,200 light years from the center of the small galaxy called FRB 121102.
Scientists from the Netherlands Institute for Radio Astronomy in Dwingeloo have used the Hubble Space Telescope to sobserve the small galaxy in detail never seen before.
Astronomer Shriharsh Tendulkar of McGill University in Montreal told New Scientist. ‘The Hubble observations allow us to get a very sharp image. There is a very bright spot of star formation, and this FRB [fast radio burst] lies bang inside it.’
Astronomers consider the nursery of stars lies on the brink of the galaxy, which has a diameter of around 20,000 light years.
The massive nursery is itself 4,400 light years across, astronomers believe.
They think these FRBs are triggered by flares from the dense core of a young neutron star left behind when the mother star explodes.
In their paper, issued in The Astrophysical Journal, the astronomers, led by Paul Scholz, wrote: ‘We have detected six additional radio bursts from this source: five with the Green Bank Telescope at 2 GHz, and one at 1.4 GHz with the Arecibo Observatory, for a total of 17 bursts from this source.’
The previous 11 FRB’s are also believed to be coming from the same location in the small FRB 121102 galaxy.
Some researchers still believe that this repetitions could be something else probably aliens or something way beyond our understanding.

If there are any intelligent alien life forms out there, Stephen Hawking thinks we’re playing a dangerous game by trying to contact them. 

If You Have Rhesus (RH) Negative Blood, You Are Alien…

Studies conducted on rhesus negative blood types show that they are missing the Rhesus factor, a protein substance present in the red blood cells of other humans. Theories suggest that people with Rhesus (RH) negative blood may be from outside this world…

Others suggest they are fallen angels from the heavens above or they belong to an alien race from somewhere in the vast darkness of space. What is clear is that those who have with Rhesus (RH) negative blood are different and unique.A person who has RH negative O blood is able to serve as a donor to any person regardless of their blood type. But if they need blood, only their own type will suffice. They represent 15% of the human race and are mostly from northern Europe.

Truth Theory reports:

The four common blood types of today include A, B, AB and O. The differences between each blood type is dependent on the proteins in the blood, but when it comes to RH negative blood types, which make up about 10 to 15 percent of the population, they don’t have these proteins.

The question that is on the minds of scientists now, is where this group of RH negative blood type people originates from. Looking back about 35,000 years, scientists believe that the blood type is linked to specific tribes and groups. Europeans have the greatest incidence of this blood type, but only 3% of African-Americans have it, and only 1% of Asian people have it.

Some common characteristics of people with this blood type include having a higher IQ, having a lower body temperature, having more awareness (physically and emotionally), having red hair, being sensitive to heat, and having blue, green or hazel colored eyes.

This blood type is shrouded in even more mystery when we look at pregnant women. RH negative women who become pregnant have difficulty delivering a baby with an RH positive blood type, as their bodies naturally attack and try to kill the fetus. Thus, they are given a special sterilized solution. (Anti-D or RHo (D)immunoglobulin)

But, why would the woman’s body attack the offspring it’s been helping give life to?

This is where a relatively new theory comes in and suggests that it’s possible alien life has influenced this blood type. What’s even stranger is that almost every person who has reported being abducted by (or interacted with) aliens has the RH negative blood type.

It’s certainly very possible that aliens visited our planet, as they’ve done for centuries, and somehow tooled around with the genetics of mankind. After all, history from all over the world has shown time and time again, through ancient texts and depictions, that we’ve been visited by beings not of this world.

What do you think about the blood type that is missing a key link to evolutionary humans? Could it be that some of us have alien blood running through our veins?

First Alien Object To Visit Solar System Is Protected By Strange Shield

First Alien Object To Visit Solar System Is Protected By Strange Shield Asteroid webNASA

The first ever alien object to visit our solar system is covered by a ‘strange shield’, scientists have revealed.

Oumuamua, which flew past Earth in October, has been fascinating scientists since it arrived in our solar system – but it’s hidden by a ‘layer of organic insulation’.

The ‘alien rock’ was the first ever known visitor to our solar system, which travelled here from another star, writes The Independent.

The asteroid’s name ‘Oumuamua’ means a messenger from afar arriving first in Hawaiian. It was spotted by a telescope in Hawaii on 18 October and was then seen 34 separate times in the week after.

While it’ s probably an icy body as expected, it appears to be wrapped in an organic coat, shielding the frozen water inside from being hit by the sun, according to the new research.

Thomas Zurbuchen, associate administrator for NASA’s Science Mission Directorate in Washington, said:

For decades we’ve theorised that such interstellar objects are out there and now – for the first time – we have direct evidence they exist.

This history-making discovery is opening a new window to study formation of solar systems beyond our own.

Still very little is known about what Oumuamua actually is, or even where it came from, and what it’s made of.

Scientists were only able to see the alien rock briefly before it passed through the other side of our solar system, which mean any kind of detailed work was limited.

Astronomer David Jewitt, of the University of California, Los Angeles, who led the observation team who reported on the characteristics said, according to PHYS:

I’m surprised by the elongated shape – nobody expected that.

Jewitt and his team observed the object for five nights in October, finding it to be about 100 ft by 100ft by 600 ft – the slightly red and pale pink hue are similar to asteroids from our own solar system.

Astronomer Jayadev Rajagopal said:

It’s exciting to point the Arizona telescope at such a tiny object which, for all we know, has been travelling through the vast emptiness of space for millions of years and then by luck, passes close enough for me to be able to see it that night!

On Thursday, NASA made a huge announcement about a discovery made in their Alien Hunting Project – a solar system exactly like our own, which is the first of its kind.

Two new planets found around the Kepler-90 star, which resembles our own sun, means the distant solar system has just as many planets as our own and could hold life.

​The space agency held a widely-anticipated press conference on Thursday at 6pm GMT to reveal the new discovery.

It was made by the Kepler telescope and people have been getting excited after NASA announced they were holding a press conference because they had some news, giving scarce details.

The announcement of the press conference on the NASA website read:

NASA hosts a media teleconference to announce the latest discovery made by its planet-hunting Kepler space telescope.

The discovery was made by researchers using machine learning from Google.

Machine learning is an approach to artificial intelligence, and demonstrates new ways of analysing Kepler data.

Since becoming an integral part of the process of discovering other planets similar to Earth, it’s shown they share many things in common ‘indicating each star might have its own planet’.

Fascinating stuff.

This ice-filled crater on Mars looks like a huge alien skating rink

Get the Mach newsletter.
By David Freeman

There’s no skating on Mars — not yet anyway — but a stunning new photograph of the Martian surface shows an ice-filled crater that looks a bit like a giant rink.

The photograph — taken by the European Space Agency’s Mars Express orbiter and released by the agency on Thursday — shows the Korolev Crater, a dish-shaped basin on the broad plain that surrounds the Martian north pole.

The impact crater is almost 51 miles wide and more than a mile deep. It holds roughly 530 cubic miles of perpetually frozen water ice, which is almost five times the volume of Lake Erie.

The photo was stitched together from five images captured by a high-resolution camera aboard the uncrewed orbiter, which has been circling the Red Planet for the past 15 years. Each of the five “strips” used to create the composite image was taken during a separate orbit.

Mars has seasons just as Earth does, but the ice never melts because of the location of the crater and its topography.

“This particular crater is very close to the polar ice cap, and the inside of the crater is at a lower elevation and more shadowed, so it creates a cold trap where the ice is stable,” Kirsten Siebach, a planetary geologist at Rice University in Houston, told NBC News MACH in an email.

Siebach said it was unusual to see ice-filled craters on Mars. But if the Martian landscape is notoriously dusty and barren, the pockmarked planet holds quite a bit of water. Just about all of it is frozen, although this year instruments aboard Mars Express revealed the existence of a large underground reservoir of liquid water near the planet’s south pole.

“There used to be liquid water in rivers and lakes on Mars, but it largely either froze as the atmosphere dissipated or was lost to space about 3 billion years ago,” Siebach said. “Ice still exists on Mars near the poles, and the Martian atmosphere has a tiny amount of water vapor.”

Korolev Crater is named after Sergei Korolev (1907-1966), a rocket engineer who is considered one of the leading architects of the Soviet space program. Korolev was involved in the Sputnik program, which in 1957 put the first artificial satellite into Earth orbit, and worked on precursors to the Soyuz rockets that now carry crews to the International Space Station.
