NASA To Spark “Lunar Gold Rush” In Move To Break China’s Monopoly On Rare Earth Metals

Source: nworeport NASA wants to spark a “lunar gold rush” by paying companies to extract rare earth metals (REM) from the moon. NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine recently tweeted that the space agency “is buying lunar soil from a commercial provider! It’s time to establish the regulatory certainty to extract and trade space resources.” The moon holds hundreds of billions, if not trillions, of dollars of untapped resources, including fifteen lanthanides, as well as scandium and yttrium – used in modern electronics. There’s also an abundance of Helium-3, a very rare gas, with the potential to fuel clean…

If NASA Couldn’t See The Asteroid That Just Whizzed By Us, What Else Can’t They See?

Even if they do see a giant space rock heading directly toward our planet, that doesn’t mean that they will actually tell us Source: Michael Snyder | End Of The American Dream Did you know that an asteroid just flew by our planet at an extremely close distance?  The good news is that it was only about the size of a car, but the bad news is that NASA had absolutely no idea that it was coming. In fact, NASA only discovered it about six hours after it had passed…

NASA Removing ‘Offensive’ Names From Planets & Galaxies To Make Space ‘More Inclusive’

Political correctness has now expanded to space Source: Niamh Harris Political correctness has now expanded to space as NASA announced this week that it is reexamining the unofficial nicknames used to describe distant cosmic objects. NASA says planets, galaxies and nebulae will no longer be referred to by “offensive” names. Removal of the “Eskimo Nebula” and “Siamese Twins Galaxy” nicknames is its first step in making space more ‘inclusive’. NYP reports: In a press release Thursday, the space agency said that all planets and heavenly bodies will be referred only…

Mars Is Pretty Clean. Her Job at NASA Is to Keep It That Way.

At the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, Catharine A. Conley has a lofty job title: planetary protection officer. That conjures to mind shades-wearing Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones in the “Men in Black” movies. Indeed, on her first day on the job, nine years ago, she was presented with a pair of sunglasses. But with no extraterrestrial invasions on the horizon, Dr. Conley’s job is not so much protecting Earth from aliens as protecting other planets from Earth. Continue reading Mars Is Pretty Clean. Her Job at NASA Is…

NASA UFO sighting: What did Buzz Aldrin see on Apollo 11? ‘Told not to talk about it’

In July 1969, NASA astronauts Neil Armstrong, Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin and Michael Collins successfully attempted the first human Moon landing. As they flew towards the Moon aboard their Columbia spacecraft, a short exchange between Mr Armstrong and NASA’s Mission Control at Houston, Texas, sparked many years of the baseless conspiracy theories and UFO claims. On the third day of the mission, the Apollo crew checked in with Houston to ask about a mystery object they say floating through space.

NASA’s $1 billion Jupiter’s majestic photos of the giant planet and its Great Red Spot

Once every 53.5 days, NASA’s Juno probe screams over Jupiter’s cloud tops roughly 75 times as fast as a bullet. The spacecraft has used these high-speed flybys, called perijoves, to document the gas giant like never before since August 2016. It records the planet with radar systems, radiation detectors, magnetic and gravitational field recorders, and more. But NASA’s beautiful new images of Jupiter come from an optical camera called JunoCam. After each perijove, the space agency uploads the raw photo data to its websites. Continue reading NASA’s $1 billion Jupiter’s…

EXTRATERRESTRIALS REMOVED US FROM THE MOON

It sounds like a science fiction script for an upcoming movie about NASA. However, according to several reports, and supposed transcriptions between the command center and the Apollo astronauts on the moon, humanity encountered otherworldly technology by setting foot on the lunar surface. Interesting details about what the astronauts may have found on the Moon come from an interview with an anonymous professor and Neil Armstrong at a NASA symposium: PROFESSOR: WHAT HAPPENED REALLY WITH APOLLO 11?

NASA Spacecraft Just Dove 75 Metres Above an Asteroid’s Surface, And The Photos Are Epic

NASA’s OSIRIS-REx spacecraft is getting ready for its big moment. OSIRIS-REx (Origins, Spectral Interpretation, Resource Identification, Security, Regolith Explorer) is at asteroid Bennu, preparing to collect a sample of ancient rock. And collecting that sample means taking step after meticulous step. OSIRIS-REx performed a series of rehearsal maneuvers in recent weeks. Each of these maneuvers brought it closer to Bennu’s surface, before the spacecraft retreated into orbit again. Eventually, it will perform its risky touch-and-go sampling procedure. Continue reading NASA Spacecraft Just Dove 75 Metres Above an Asteroid’s Surface, And…

NASA Scientists In Antarctica Find Evidence of ‘Parallel Universe’ Where ‘Time Runs Backward’

Source: Baxter Dmitry NASA scientists working on an experiment in Antarctica may have detected evidence of a “parallel universe” where “time runs backwards” and “the rules of physics are the opposite of our own.” The concept of a parallel universe has been around since the early 1960s, mostly in the minds of fans of sci-fi TV shows and comics, but now a cosmic ray detection experiment has found particles that could be from a parallel realm that also was born in the Big Bang, the Daily Star reported. The experts used…

NASA thinks alien life might be hiding in ancient caves on Mars

Scientists think if there is life on Mars it’s likely to be hidden in deep underground caves. This theory is supported by Nasa experts and the US space agency will be sending a new rover to the red planet this summer. According to Space.com, NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory research scientist Vlada Stamenković explained the Martian underground life theory at a recent space event. Speaking at the Mars Extant Life conference, Stamenković reportedly said: “The surface of Mars is a very oxidizing, radiation-heavy environment where liquid water is not really stable…

Voyager 2 is gathering science data again after recovering from a glitch in interstellar space

All five remaining instruments on NASA’s venerable Voyager 2 spacecraft are back to gathering science data after power overuse in late January interrupted the probe’s operations. NASA made the announcement yesterday (March 3), over a month after the incident occurred. Troubleshooting for the spacecraft is a slow process because of its distance from Earth; it takes 17 hours for each command to reach the probe and for data indicating its efficacy to reach engineers. “Voyager 2 has returned to normal operations following the anomaly on Jan.

Astronaut Screams When She Sees a UFO Approaching The International Space Station

In this video, we see the automatic and conditioned reaction of the astronaut who calmed his colleague immediately with an apparent sense of urgency before she could even utter a scream. At an analysis of the video, we can see the first astronaut from Italy Samantha Cristoforetti, who shouts a scream during the docking maneuvers with the International Space Station. Why she was so alarmed? Would NASA tell us if aliens are monitoring our world? I think they should not keep such information secret because it is a real problem…
