  • What Would Aliens Actually Look Like? We Asked 7 Experts

    Popular Mechanics ^ | August 7, 2014 | John Brandon
    Movies and TV shows would have us believe aliens would look a bit like us, only with a big (bald) head, green skin, and crazy eyes. But we weren't satisfied with that old cliche. So we decided to ask sci-fi authors, science experts, and ET buffs what they think a real alien might look like.

    National Post [Canada] / AP ^ | April 26, 2014 | Juan Carlos Llorca
    ... About 200 of residents and game enthusiasts gathered early Saturday in southeastern New Mexico to watch backhoes and bulldozers dig through the concrete-covered landfill in search of up to a million discarded copies of “E.T. The Extraterrestrial” that the game’s maker wanted to hide forever.... The “E.T.” game is among the factors blamed for the decline of Atari and the collapse in the U.S. of a multi-million dollar video game industry that didn’t bounce back for several years. Tina Amini, deputy editor at gaming website Kotaku, said the game tanked because “it was practically broken.” A recurring flaw, she...

    A science blogger with a keen sense of vision claims to have spotted a lizard meandering around Mars. The unknown spotter is from Japan and alerted the website, UFO Sightings Daily, of the unusual sight. The rather unbelievable and completely unsubstantiated claim has caused some excitable conspiracy theorists to fear that the NASA could be planting life on the planet for scientific testing.

    Finding ET in the Data by Paul Gilster on April 17, 2013 As we saw yesterday, the Infrared Astronomical Satellite (IRAS) has been the source of data for a number of searches for unusual infrared signatures. The idea is to look for the artifacts of advanced extraterrestrial civilizations, under the assumption that a sufficiently advanced culture will be capable of engineering projects that could be detected from light years away. A Dyson sphere, existing either as a completely enclosed star or as a swarm of artifacts around a star, is but one example of such engineering, but it’s a sensible...

    In Washington, everyone has their issue. But it's probably safe to say that Stephen Bassett's is a little more colorful. Bassett, the executive director of the Paradigm Research Group, wants the U.S. government to lift what he calls the "truth embargo" and acknowledge that extraterrestrials are real and are engaging the human race. "Think of me as a very committed political activist like any other, whether it's the civil rights movement, or the gay rights movement, or the women's rights movement, or any other," he told Yeas & Nays. Though his movement is a wee bit more alien. Bassett and...

    Thirty years ago on June 11, 1982, audiences were first introduced to "E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial" in all of its non-CGI, 2-D glory. And when the flick returned to theaters in 2002, viewers who were hoping to relive their childhoods had their memories tarnished when the FBI guys chasing Elliott and co. were seen with walkie-talkie instead of guns. But thankfully in time to celebrate the 30th anniversary, Steven Spielberg realized his mistake and the guns of your youth are back in place for the Blu-ray release scheduled for October, reports Vulture.

This is a fake — a slickly produced fake, to be sure, replete with clever editing and enough gags to make it a bona fide viral video phenomenon, but still a fake. I promise, though, that you’ll enjoy it anyway, either as a straightforward rendering of what an inevitably crappy “E.T.” sequel would look like or as a broader parody of Hollywood’s paint-by-numbers “evil aliens” genre. Why, there’s even an Obama cameo! Although, admittedly, that part doesn’t ring true: He sounds pretty resolute...

    NASA has released images of a mysterious x-shaped UFO travelling at super-fast speeds that was picked up by the Hubble space telescope. The object is unlike any ever seen before, Scientists quick to discount any involvement of any extraterrestrial civilization have come up with the dubious and according to some, baseless theory that the UFO is the aftermath of a collision between two comets. It should be noted that no previous hypothetical testing of this scenario has ever predicted an object shaped as such as the outcome of such an event. Many ufologists are more inclined to believe that this...

    EARTH is becoming "invisible" to aliens, the world's leading ET hunter claimed yesterday. Dr Frank Drake said transmission of signals into space was being cut by the digital revolution. As a result, any little green men on other planets would not be able to detect them. Dr Drake said Earth was surrounded by a 50 light year-wide "shell" of radiation from analogue TV, radio and radar transmissions. The signals had spread far enough to reach nearby star systems but are vanishing. He explained that while old-style TV transmissions could generate one million watts, digital transmissions are much weaker. And satellites...

    An official announcement by the Obama administration disclosing the reality of extraterrestrial life is imminent. For several months, senior administration officials have been quietly deliberating behind closed doors how much to disclose to the world about extraterrestrial life. Dissatisfaction among powerful institutions such as the U.S. Navy over the decades-long secrecy policy has given a boost to efforts to disclose the reality of extraterrestrial life and technology. The impending disclosure announcement follows upon the secret implementation of a year long openness policy on UFOs and extraterrestrial life. Over the period February 12-14, 2008, the United Nations held closed doors discussions...

The costume depicts an “illegal alien” carrying a super-sized green card in his hand while wearing an orange prison jumpsuit with the words “illegal alien” stenciled across the front. According to Carville the garb is “insensitive and offensive” to “hardworking humanoid life-forms just because they happen to be from another planet.” Carville also advised The Vitamin Press that this issue is extremely important to him because “both of my parents came from Uranus.” E.T., head of the Society Humanely Integrating Alien...

    For many people, the closest thing they have come to an alien or extraterrestrial is in movies such as Star Wars or Star Trek. There is a notion that going to a foreign planet will be something like going to a foreign country – things will be recognizable but quaintly ‘alien’. However, for a growing number of people, the idea of contact with beings from outer space is a spiritual experience. Fundamentally, both involve belief. One may ask, “Do you believe in angels?” or “Do you believe in ETs?” Or perhaps “Do you believe in both?” Few believe in neither....

    Is it possible that there is intelligent life out among the stars? And if there is, what would be the theological implications of this fact? Many Christians have assumed that there could not be intelligent extraterrestrials, and that if some were discovered then this would somehow constitute a challenge to the Christian faith. But that apparently wasn't the view of Larry Norman, the father of Christian rock. Norman always sang about interesting, relevant and unusual topics. In his classic song "UFO" (off the album In Another Land) he likens the returning Christ to an "unidentified flying object". In keeping with...

    SCIENTISTS looking for aliens in space should be hunting them on EARTH, it has been claimed. Prof Paul Davies said creatures totally different from life as we know it may exist on our planet. The UK-born cosmologist, now in Arizona, believes they might not have DNA - meaning they would not have been found by usual life-detection techniques. He called for searches for "weird life" in inhospitable places, such as hot, undersea vents. Prof Davies said finding alternative life "would be the biggest discovery in biology since Darwin and evolution".

In addition to giving advice on the Cuban missile crisis, the alleged letter also contained an invitation for Kennedy to meet with the extraterrestrials. If Kennedy did attend such a meeting, it may explain why he was certain about human looking extraterrestrial life; made undisclosed trips to Air Force bases to deal with the UFO issue; and why he instructed NASA to cooperate with the USSR on joint space...

The ufologist said at a special press conference in Istanbul that a local resident, a watchman from one of cottage townships, managed to film an extraterrestrial spaceship and two aliens. The lucky man, named as Yalcin Yalman, presented his 22-minute video to reporters. The video can be found on YouTube (click to watch the video). Haktan Agdogan said that the tape will evoke a wide response in the world because it is the first-ever footage that depicts not only a UFO per...

    BERKELEY, Calif. -- On Monday, KTVU reported scientists have received an odd signal from space and some readers may have interpreted this as a confirmed extra-terrestrial contact. Scientists did confirm there was an anomalous radio signal and reported it late last year. However, as SETI@home lead scientist Dan Werthimer now clarifies, "although this pulse is not well understood..." it may have a natural origin. SETI Institute Chief Scientist Seth Shostak says the highly energetic and brief signal at first excited some researchers, who at the time thought it may be a candidate ET signal. It was received not at Arecibo,...

    ET too bored by Earth transmissions to respond 16:35 18 December 2007 NewScientist.com news service Tom Simonite Messages sent into space directed at extraterrestrials may have been too boring to earn a reply, say two astrophysicists trying to improve on their previous alien chat lines. Humans have so far sent four messages into space intended for alien listeners. But they have largely been made up of mathematically coded descriptions of some physics and chemistry, with some basic biology and descriptions of humans thrown in. Those topics will not prove gripping reading to other civilisations, says Canadian astrophysicist Yvan Dutil. If...

    If we encountered alien life, would we recognize it? I don't mean large, ambulatory, tentacle-snapping organisms with eyeballs on the ends of stalks. Those are always obvious. I'm talking about the low-key, chilled-out microscopic life-forms that might be lurking below the surface of Mars, or beneath the crust of one of Jupiter's jumbo moons, or in some such exotic, slightly scuzzy planetary environment where you'd definitely never find a Starbucks. What are we looking for, exactly, when we search for alien life? What is life?

    Nasa this week unveils a new emissary in the search for evidence of extraterrestrial life. The Phoenix Mars Lander, which launches next month, marks just the latest instalment in a quest that has exercised the imaginations of writers and scientists since long before the adventures of Jules Verne. In the 17th century Johannes Kepler, the architect of our modern understanding of the solar system, imagined a journey to a moon inhabited by serpent-like creatures called Prevlovans who endured the lunar night "bristling with ice and snow under the raging, icy winds". Regrettably, however, here is no reliable account of a...

    Earth-like Planet Discovered by David H. Rogstad, April 25, 2007 © 2007 Reasons To Believe The news media is abuzz with the recent discovery of a new exoplanet (planet orbiting a star other than our Sun). It is the most Earth-like of any of the more than 200 planets detected so far (see here for a catalogue). The European team of astronomers responsible for this work (press release) has reported: on two new planets orbiting the M-type dwarf star Gl 581 in Libra a third body, a larger Neptune-sized planet (at least 16 times the mass of the Earth) had...

    SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - When the aliens finally invade Earth, you may wish you had listened to Travis Taylor and Bob Boan. And if the invasion follows the plot of a typical Hollywood blockbuster, they might also be the guys called in at the last minute to save the day. After all, they have written "An Introduction to Planetary Defense," a primer on how humanity can defend itself if little green men wielding death rays show up at our cosmic doorstep. And yes, they're serious. "The probability really is there that aliens exist and are old enough to have technology...
  • "Aliens Cause Global Warming"

    03/31/2007 8:28:21 PM PDT · by ventanax5 · 61 replies · 2,177+ views
    My topic today sounds humorous but unfortunately I am serious. I am going to argue that extraterrestrials lie behind global warming. Or to speak more precisely, I will argue that a belief in extraterrestrials has paved the way, in a progression of steps, to a belief in global warming. Charting this progression of belief will be my task today. Let me say at once that I have no desire to discourage anyone from believing in either extraterrestrials or global warming. That would be quite impossible to do. Rather, I want to discuss the history of several widely-publicized beliefs and to...

    Milagros Garcia is an alleged Alien and Human inter-species hybrid. The blood DNA from this Puerto Rican woman has yielded analyses so unusual and interesting that the physician involved is now interested in meeting the subject for further study. The DNA is possible in humans but is very rare. Ms. Garcia claims that she is the offspring of an alien encounter. The Doctor is not interested in the UFO/ alien phenomena he wants answers as to why her DNA has such rare qualities. A Case similar to this is being investigated in New Paris Ohio. A woman there has exceptional...
