Are we looking in the wrong place for ET?
Scientists suggest 'footprints' on moon
could be best place to look for alien life


  • Alien missions to moon likely to have been long ago
  • Moon would preserve traces for millions of years
  • Easier to find alien debris than radio signals 
  • Nasa's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter may have captured pictures of 'footprints' of ancient aliens
The Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence - SETI - project looks for alien life in a one, main specific way - scanning for radio signals deliberately beamed towards earth from distant stars. 
But two astronomers suggest that we may be missing evidence much closer to home.
Two scientists at Arizona State University have suggested that alien life may have 'left traces on the moon in the form of an artifact or surface modification of lunar features' - and that alien 'footprints' on the moon would last far longer than radio signals.

The detailed moon maps created by Nasa's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter may be the best place to look for alien life, say scientists - evidence such as trails or debris would remain there for millions of years, and be easier to 'catch' than radio signals

New astronomy software creates the first
accurate visions of other worlds - including
what Earth looked like 240 million years ago


Astrobiologist Abel Mendez of the University of Puerto Rico at Arecibo has designed a software package that can draw real-looking worlds based on the scientific data we receive from space telescopes  - and says Nasa gets it wrong. 
Mendez's software package draws planets based on their size, distance from their parent star and chemistry - and can create 3D images that correspond to the data.
The imagery sent out when missions such as Nasa's Kepler telescope find 'exoplanets' - planets outside our solar system - is still imagined by artists. Mendez claims that his approach is more scientific.

Watch The Secret Life of Chaos, with Prof. Jim Al-Khalili


Chaos theory has a bad name, conjuring up images of unpredictable weather, economic crashes and science gone wrong. But there is a fascinating and hidden side to Chaos one that scientists are only now beginning to understand. It turns out that chaos theory answers a question that mankind has asked for millennia – how did we get here?

Descriptions of the Star People




Cynthia Crawford ET sculptor
When I first started sculpturing the beings
, I made a hybrid baby, half Zeta and half human, from remembering my experience in 1997 where I was taken on board a Mothership for a healing of a brain tumor. At that time, I was greeted by a very tall blonde man who appeared to be mid 30s and who was dressed in a pastel, multi-royal colored robe. He never introduced himself, and nor did I think to ask him his name, almost as if it didn't matter. Yet several years later when I sculptured him, people who had experienced him before identified him as Michael, also known as Archangel Michael.

Could hackers develop a 'computer virus' to infect the human mind?


  • Synthetic biology is 'out-accelerating evolution' - expert
  • Bio-crime today is 'like computer crime in the Eighties'
  • Viruses could be used to influence behaviour - and we may have to 'learn how to counterattack'
  • 'One of the most powerful technologies in the world'
Californian biologist Andrew Hessel says, 'Cells are living computers and DNA is a programming language,' but warns that this could lead to viruses and bacteria used to 'hack' human minds
Californian biologist Andrew Hessel says, 'Cells are living computers and DNA is a programming language,' but warns that this could lead to viruses and bacteria used to 'hack' human minds
The field of 'synthetic biology' is in its infancy. We can 'tweak' the genetics of life forms - but billionaire entrepreneur Craig Venter only created 'artificial life' for the first time last year, christening his life form 'Synthia'.
But experts working within the field believe that our expertise is out-accelerating natural evolution by a factor of millions of years - and some warn that synthetic biology could spin out of control.
It could lead, says Andrew Hessel of Singularity University, on Nasa's research campus, to a world where hackers could engineer viruses or bacteria to control human minds.
Hessel believes that genetic engineering is the next frontier of computing. 
'This is one of the most powerful technologies in the world,' says Hessel 'Synthetic biology - the writing of life.'
'I advocate that cells are living computers and DNA is a programming language.'
'I want to see life programmed and used to solve global challenges so that humanity can achieve a sustainable relationship within the biosphere,' he says.It's growing fast. It will grow faster than computer technologies.'
He predicts a world where we can 'print' DNA, and even 'decode' it. But he warned, in a speech at technology conference TXM, that viruses and bacteria send chemicals into human brains - and could be used to influence, or even 'control' their host.

Giant plumes of methane bubbling to surface of Arctic Ocean



Methane bubbles trapped in the arctic ice
Russian scientists have discovered hundreds of plumes of methane gas, some 1,000 meters in diameter, bubbling to the surface of the Arctic Ocean. Scientists are concerned that as theArctic Shelf recedes, the unprecedented levels of gas released could greatly accelerate global climate change.
Igor Semiletov of the Russian Academy of Sciences tells the UK's Independent that the plumes of methane, a gas 20 times as harmful as carbon dioxide, have shocked scientists who have been studying the region for decades. "Earlier we found torch-like structures like this but they were only tens of meters in diameter," he said. "This is the first time that we've found continuous, powerful and impressive seeping structures, more than 1,000 metres in diameter. It's amazing."

The secret gates at the heart of the Great Pyramid may be opened for the first time in 2012, a British robot company believes - solving a mystery that has puzzled archaeologists since 1872.
Scoutek UK had already begun exploring behind the gates earlier this year - and produced the first-ever images from behind the gates using a 'micro snake' robot. But the exploration was halted by the recent unrest in Egypt. Expedition leader Shaun Whitehead said, 'I'm very confident we can resume work in 2012.'

US military pays SETI to check Kepler-22b for aliens

The Search for Extra Terrestrial Intelligence (SETI) has announced that it is back in business checking out the new habitable exoplanets recently discovered by NASA's Kepler space telescope to see if they might be home to alien civilisations. The cash needed to restart SETI's efforts has come in part from the US Air Force Space Command, who are interested in using the organisation's detection instruments for "space situational awareness".

Coast To Coast AM - 6.12.2011 - Wartime UFOs, Giant Black Holes

Wartime UFOs: In the course of researching his novels, military fiction writer Mack Maloney discovered startling historical records of an increase of UFO sightings near pivotal military events. On Tuesday's show, he discussed a variety of incidents from World Wars I & II, as well as Viet Nam and other battle zones. One of the earliest cases he found dated back to the time of Alexander the Great, when his army was planning a siege on the city of Tyre, and "flying shields" let out a lightning bolt that destroyed one of the city's walls, which allowed Alexander's army to get in. Proceeding WWI, "scareships" were reported by British newspapers in 1909.

The Las Vegas UFO Crash, April 18, 1962

Very few of the crash/retrieval stories take place on a military reservation. The majority of the reports are from civilians who have happened onto the scene of an extraordinary event. The reported destruction of a craft near Nellis Air Force Base, outside of Las Vegas, Nevada, in 1962 is the exception that proves the rule. The vast Nellis complex is the one location where it seems a flying saucer crashed right into government and air force hands. And there are, literally, dozens of firsthand witnesses to the fact.Like many of the reports of UFO crashes, the Las Vegas case was overlooked by most of the UFO research community. Frank Edwards, who mentioned the Roswell case in a single paragraph in his 1966 book Flying Saucers-Serious Business, wrote more about the crash near Las Vegas in his 1964 book Strange World. Although he often wrote from memory and didn't always check his facts as closely as possible, he did get the basics of the case reported before anyone else bothered with it.

Pluto's Moons Could Spell Danger for New Horizons Spacecraft

A pair of small moons orbiting Pluto named Nix and Hydra were discovered by NASA's Hubble Space Telescope in 2005. The two moons are roughly 5,000 times fainter than Pluto and are about two to three times farther from Pluto than its large moon, Charon, which was discovered in 1978.

When NASA's New Horizons spacecraft reaches Pluto in July 2015, it may find the region more hazardous than anticipated. The discovery of several moons around Pluto — and the potential for more — increase the risks during the probe's flyby.
The main problem is debris. The small moons are under constant bombardment from nearby space rocks called Kuiper Belt objects, but the moons' low gravity prevents them from holding on to chunks of dirt and rock that fly into the air when hit. The debris instead finds itself caught in orbit around Pluto, where it could pose a serious threat to New Horizons.

The Arrival of Bolon Yokte K'uh - 21 December 2012


The Tortuguero Monument predicts the end of the long count on 4 Ajaw, 3 K'ank'in, 13.0.0.0.0 - 21 December 2012. It also predicts the descent of Bolon Yokte K'uh. The link in the previous sentence gives a thorough summary of the information available on this God, so I won't go into too much detail about him. My simplistic view of things is that each underworld has a God associated with it. When all nine underworlds end together, Bolon Yokte K'uh, who is a combination of all the Gods comes down. Though I'm not really sure what the Mayan's were trying to get at, the implication is that the power of Bolon Yokte K'uh is much greater than individual Gods, so the potential changes he brings are significant.

Second Mayan 2012 reference found



MEXICO CITY — Mexico’s archaeology institute downplays theories that the ancient Mayas predicted some sort of apocalypse would occur in 2012, but on Thursday it acknowledged that a second reference to the date exists on a carved fragment found at a southern Mexico ruin site.

Most experts had cited only one surviving reference to the date in Mayan glyphs, a stone tablet from the Tortuguero site in the Gulf coast state of Tabasco.
