A UFO Is Closing in on Earth and NASA Is Covering It Up, According to YouTubers

This article originally appeared on pm.com.

One of the nice things NASA does is stream live footage from the International Space Station as it orbits the Earth 16 times a day. It’s pretty calming stuff—until a UFO enters the picture. Then all bets are off.

On July 9, NASA was streaming footage from the ISS when YouTuber Streetcap1 spotted something (aliens? probably aliens) entering the Earth’s atmosphere. But as the object (again, almost 100 percent aliens) nears our planet, the NASA feed cut out. While Streetcap1 points out it could be a meteor, we’ve seen Independence Day. We know what’s up. You can see the video below:

New calculation shows alien contact will be made in 1,500 years

This article originally appeared on nypost.com.

Be patient– alien contact is now only 1,500 years away, scientists have calculated.

Researchers at Cornell University have developed a new equation to explain the Fermi Paradox, which suggests earthlings should have made contact with an extraterrestrial civilization by now.

The scientists calculated that signals from Earth would need to reach half of all the solar systems in the Milky Way in order to be picked up, decoded, and answered by an advanced alien civilization.

That’s not likely to happen for some 1,500 years because TV and radio transmissions were only first dispatched into space 80 years ago, so far reaching about 8,530 stars and about 3,500 Earth-like planets, they calculated.

Does Image Beamed From Mars Show Alien’s Skull?

This article originally appeared on Yahoo.com.

The image, originally beamed to Earth from the Mars Curiosity rover, was the subject of a video from an alien investigative group, showing close-ups of the curious object on the desolate planet.

Is it a skull? If so, a skull of whom? Or what?

Introducing the video, Paranormal Crucible wrote: “Strange artifact found by the rover, appears to resemble a large skull, obviously alien in nature, could it be the remains of a Sasquatch or a bizarre Martian creature?”

Super Earth 1,200 light-years away might be able to sustain life

This article originally appeared on cbsnews.com.

Astronomers think they’ve found a “super Earth” that might be capable of sustaining life. Kepler-62f is a planet 1,200 light-years away from our own, and in the same range of planets that are likely to not just be rocky, but also have oceans, the scientists say.

“We found there are multiple atmospheric compositions that allow it to be warm enough to have surface liquid water,” Aomaway Shields, study lead author and a National Science Foundation astronomy and astrophysics postdoctoral fellow at UCLA, said in a press release.

Shields worked alongside Eric Agol, Rory Barnes, Cecilia Bitz, Benjamin Charnay, and Victoria Meadows from the University of Washington. The team’s research was first published online in the journal Astrobiology.

Most of the universe has no way of knowing that we exist

This article originally appeared on Business Insider.

Most of the aliens probably have no way of knowing that humans are on Earth.
This is a comforting thought if extraterrestrials terrify you and a disappointing one if you can’t wait to find ET. It also suggests just how little we know of the vast universe — and how little it knows of us.

Seth Shostak, director of the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence Institute (SETI), told Tech Insider that he (and many other researchers) defines intelligent life as a being who can build a radio.

Finding Aliens May Be Even Easier Than Previously Thought

This article originally appeared on universetoday.com.

Finding examples of intelligent life other than our own in the Universe is hard work. Between spending decades listening to space for signs of radio traffic – which is what the good people at the SETI Institute have been doing – and waiting for the day when it is possible to send spacecraft to neighboring star systems, there simply haven’t been a lot of options for finding extra-terrestrials.

But in recent years, efforts have begun to simplify the search for intelligent life. Thanks to the efforts of groups like the Breakthrough Foundation, it may be possible in the coming years to send “nanoscraft” on interstellar voyages using laser-driven propulsion. But just as significant is the fact that developments like these may also make it easier for us to detect extra-terrestrials that are trying to find us

10 Ancient Sites That Might Be Stargates, Portals And Wormholes

This article originally appeared on listverse.com.

Many ancient cultures speak of portals to other worlds and gateways to star systems where their “creators” reside. Conventional wisdom tells us these tales are merely myths and legends. However, recent declassified FBI files have stated that our Earth has been visited by beings from other dimensions and planets. NASA has announced that “portals” do indeed appear to be hidden within the Earth’s magnetic field, making some wonder if the legends of stargates, portals and wormholes may have some degree of truth to them.

Mysterious burst of radio waves traced to galaxy billions of light-years away

This article originally appeared on Yahoo News.

For the first time, a mysterious blast of energy known as a Fast Radio Burst (FRB) has been precisely traced to a distant galaxy, bringing scientists even closer to figuring out the origins of these odd cosmic flashes.

On April 18, 2015, a telescope caught sight of the FRB, and mere hours later, other telescopes found its location, tracing the source of the burst to a galaxy about 6 billion light-years away, according to a new study published in the journal Nature this week.

This marks the first time the distance to an FRB has been measured.

FRBs send out as much energy in a fraction of a second as the sun puts out in 10,000 years, but they are exceedingly difficult to find.

UFO Enthusiast Flies Drone Over Area 51 To See If The Truth Is Out There After All

This article originally appeared on Yahoo News.

Is the truth out there after all?

Han Faulkner certainly thinks so, and decided to test his theory by flying a DRONE over Area 51 – the secretive Nevada air base that has been long associated with rumours of alien activity.

It is the place where the U.S. military developed stealth technologies and the U2 spy plane – and its existence was only acknowledged by the CIA in 2013.

But the base has been associated with alien activity ever since physicist Bob Knapp claimed in the 1980s that alien spaceships were being stored in a mountain-side hangar.

Since then, it has been a pilgrimage site for UFO enthusiasts, although the closest that the public are able to get is 26 miles away on a mountain range called Tikaboo Peak.

The Real ‘X-Files’? CIA Reveals Weirdest UFO Stories

This article originally appeared on Yahoo News.

The real-life stories of UFOs would be enough for the fictional “X-Files” FBI agents Mulder and Scully to spend a lifetime investigating.

With a nod to the new “X-Files” reboot (which airs on Fox on Mondays at 8 p.m. ET), the Central Intelligence Agency has released a trove of once classified documents on several real-life unidentified flying objects.

Not surprisingly, many of these UFO sightings emerged in the early 1950s. The space race was on, the Cold War fears had reached a fever pitch, and science-fiction movies like “The Flying Saucer” (1950) catapulted schlocky depictions of aliens and their flying machines into the popular consciousness. In fact, by 1953, UFO mania had reached such heights that the CIA marshaled a team of scientific consultants to investigate all of the reports and review the “Unidentified Flying Object Problem,” according to a 1953 memorandum by the agency.

Enormous Structures Might Be Hiding in the Middle of Our Galaxy

This article originally appeared on Yahoo News.

For years, astronomers have been puzzled by a quandary known as the global missing baryon problem, which struggles to pin down the whereabouts of unaccounted for matter in the universe. So where has all the matter gone? Scientists may have just figured it out.
Astronomers at the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization’s Compact Array station in Eastern Australia have reportedly made a mind-bending discovery. Using Compact Array telescopes located onsite, IFL Science reports that researchers may have uncovered “invisible” entities so large that they could stretch the length of space it takes Earth to make a full rotation around the sun. The entities are located in the Sagittarius constellation, and the missing matter scientists have been searching for could be contained within them.

CIA Releases Secret UFO Files – Including Spaceships Over Britain In 1962

This article originally appeared on Yahoo News.

It’s the moment UFO fans have been waiting for – the CIA has hand-selected some formerly top-secret files and photos to ‘prove’ extraterrestrials exist.

Sadly for extraterrestrial fans, the files are a bit lacking in alien autopsies and crashed flying saucers – but they’re a fascinating insight into the height of the ‘flying saucer’ era.

The CIA released the files – seemingly to coincide with the new X-Files episodes – provoking disbelief on UFO websites.

One report, entitled, Flying Saucers and dated 1 August 1952, says, ‘Less than 100 reasonably credible reports remain ‘unexplainable’ at this time. It is recommended that CIA surveillance be continued.

‘It is strongly urged, however, that no reports of CIA interest or concern reach the press or public.

The CIA said, ‘We’ve decided to highlight a few documents both skeptics and believers will find interesting.

Are There Aliens? 4 Theories About Life on Other Planets

This article originally appeared on Yahoo News.

1. There are chemical precursors to life on other planets — the same one’s that could have kickstarted Earth.

While the origin of life on Earth can still be debated among the scientific community, new findings suggest that the first traces of life on the planet over 3 billion years ago could be attributed to organic chemical reactions, according to Live Science.

The study, presented in January 2013 at a meeting of the American Astronomical Society, broadly concludes that life could originate from complex organic compounds formed within gas, dust, and plasma-filled interstellar clouds. As a result, these chemicals were then deposited onto Earth in the form of asteroids and meteors — which hit our planet much more frequently in Earth’s infancy.

UFO caught on video inspecting chemtrails.

This article originally appeared on Inquisitr.com.

A witness from El Cajon in San Diego, California, reports detecting a mysterious UFO in a video of an ascending jet he recorded. He noticed the UFO while reviewing the video long after he recorded it.

He confirmed the presence of a UFO in the video by slowing it down and capturing still frames that show the UFO flying past the jet’s contrails.

Some conspiracy theorists have suggested the jet’s trails are not normal contrails, but chemtrails, and that the UFO was likely investigating to determine why the plane was spraying toxic chemical agents.

Chemtrails conspiracy theorists are saying that this video is proof that aliens are aware of government chemtrails.

We Haven’t Found Aliens Because They’re All Already Dead, Scientists Say

This article originally appeared on Yahoo News.

The reason there has never been a confirmed sighting of an alien – or a message from an alien race – could be very depressing.

The reason we haven’t heard from aliens is because they’re all already dead, a new study has suggested.

Researchers from Australian National University suggest that the environments on early planets tend to be so hostile that even when life arises, it is quickly exterminated.

‘The Universe is probably filled with habitable planets, so many scientists think it should be teeming with aliens,’ said Aditya Chopra from the Australian National University.

‘Early life is fragile, so we believe it rarely evolves quickly enough to survive.’

‘Most early planetary environments are unstable. To produce a habitable planet, life forms need to regulate greenhouse gases such as water and carbon dioxide to keep surface temperatures stable.’’

That bizarre-looking star just got a lot weirder, and yes — it could be aliens

This article originally appeared on Yahoo News.

Three months ago, news broke that a giant “alien megastructure” could exist around a bizarre-looking star 1,500 light years away.

While the prospect of aliens was first launched by Penn State astronomer Jason Wright, almost everyone in the astronomy community agreed that the chances that this was the case were “very low.”

Now, the latest investigations into this strange star by Louisiana State University astronomer Bradley Schaefer have re-ignited the alien theory, New Scientist reported.

What makes this star, called KIC8462852, so bizarre is the drastic changes in light we see from it over time. Many stars experience temporary fluctuations in brightness, increasing and decreasing in luminosity over time, but KIC8462852’s changes are severe by comparison.
