The weird, repeating signals from deep space just tripled

Fast radio bursts are getting more attention from scientists, who can now detect more of them. Source: Eric Mack Scientists suddenly have a whole lot more data on one of the strangest and most recent mysteries in the cosmos, so-called fast radio bursts (FRBs). First discovered in 2007, these fleeting blasts of radio waves originate thousands, millions or even billions of light years from Earth. FRBs have influenced the design of new radio telescopes like the Canadian Hydrogen Intensity Mapping Experiment (CHIME). And now a team of Canadian and American…

In George Dyson’s book, he mentioned an Orion battleship model that was shown to President Kennedy. President Kennedy chose not to develop the project. Kennedy made this choice because he did not want the arms race to go that extreme. This was not a cancellation based upon technical problems.

WTF? ‘Supervillain’ Elon Musk Wants To ‘Nuke Mars’

Plans to make ‘Nuke Mars’ T-shirts Source: Kelen McBreen | Infowars.com SpaceX and Tesla CEO Elon Musk sent out a tweet Thursday night, reviving his idea of hitting Mars with nuclear weapons in an attempt to make the Red Planet more inhabitable for humans. Musk believes initiating this plan would melt the planet’s polar ice caps and release CO2, creating a “greenhouse effect.” The Tesla CEO followed his original tweet by adding, “T-shirt soon.” This isn’t the first time Musk has advocated bombarding the planet with thermonuclear weaponry. In 2015,…

Mars Mystery: Scientists Baffled by Unusual Methane Spikes That Hint at Life

Recent study rules out “wind erosion” theory, meaning methane is coming from somewhere else Source: Kit Daniels | Infowars.com The mysterious cause for an “unusually high” spike in methane on Mars is baffling scientists, with some even asking if the source is biological. A recent study suggests that wind erosion is an “unlikely mechanism” to produce the relatively high levels of methane detected by the Curiosity rover and by other methods of observation. “The questions are: where is this methane coming from, and is the source biological?” said principal investigator…

NASA Discovers New Nearby ‘Super-Earth’ Which Might Sustain Human Life

If found to have an atmosphere, GJ 357 d could be promising for future human colonization © NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center/Chris Smith. NASA has just discovered a potential “super-Earth” outside our solar system which is located comfortably inside its star’s habitable zone, meaning it could be ripe for human colonization. While monitoring the star named GJ 357, which sits just 31 light years away in the constellation Hydra, the space agency’s Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) caught the star dimming every 3.9 days, indicating the presence of at least…

The Curiosity rover found a massive spike in methane that could point to life on Mars

Source: Nicole Einbinder The NASA Curiosity rover made a remarkable discovery this week that may hint at signs of life on Mars. The surprising development, reported on by The New York Times, brings legitimacy to the long-held notion that aliens may actually be occupying the red planet. According to a measurement taken on Wednesday by NASA’s Curiosity rover, scientists unearthed high amounts of methane in the air on Mars — indicating microbes could survive on the planet. As The Times noted, methane is typically just produced by living things. Business…

The First Known Interstellar Meteor May Have Hit Earth in 2014

The first meteor to hit Earth from interstellar space — and the second known interstellar visitor overall — may have just been discovered, a new study finds. Interstellar meteors may be common, and could potentially help life travel from star to star, researchers added. The first known visitor from interstellar space, a cigar-shaped object named ‘Oumuamua, was detected in 2017. Scientists deduced the origins of the 1,300-foot-long (400 meters) object from its speed and trajectory, which suggests it may have come from another star, or perhaps two.
