  • Could Catholicism handle the discovery of extraterrestrial life?

    NASA confirmed the discovery of seven new exoplanets not too far from Earth, bringing humanity one step closer to finding other livable planets and, possibly, extraterrestrial life. Does Catholicism have the means to survive such a discovery? The pope, experts and theologians say yes. In a highly anticipated press conference on February 22, NASA declared that seven Earth-sized planets have been discovered orbiting a relatively close dwarf star. For space enthusiasts, trekkies and stargazers, the possibility of finding alien life forms just got one step closer to reality. The tiny “salmon-colored” star is unassumingly called Trappist-1. Held tightly in its...

    SCIENTISTS may have found proof that E.T. really is phoning home — in the form of powerful radio signals which have been detected repeatedly in the same exact location in space.

    While Hawking fears that giving aliens our cosmic address could potentially bring death and ruin — much like what happened to many groups of Native Americans when Europeans invaded North America — Tarter thinks that aliens advanced enough to skip across star systems and reach Earth will be friendly, not aggressive.  
  • Atari games buried more than 30 years ago in New Mexico landfill

    Daily Mail ^ | 9/2/15 | By Associated Press and Daily Mail Reporter
    A cache of Atari game cartridges dug up in a New Mexico landfill last year has generated more than $100,000 in sales over the last several months. The April 2014 dig ended speculation surrounding an urban legend and proved it to be true that Atari discarded hundreds of games, including E.T. The Extraterrestrial, more than 30 years ago. In addition to the E.T. cartridges, Joseph Lewandowski found more than 60 other titles including Asteroids, Missile Command, Warlords, Star Raiders, Swordquest, Centipede and Super Breakout.
  • Area 51 and extra-terrestrial life both exist, says head of NASA [2 Thess 2]

    The Telegraph ^ | 6/19/2015 | Sarah Knapton
    Extra-terrestrial life does exist, the head of NASA has confirmed, but said aliens were not hidden in Area 51. NASA Administrator Major Charles Bolden told British schoolchildren that he was confident that scientists would find life outside of Earth because there were so many planets that are similar to our own. Asked by 10-year-old Carmen Dearing if he believed in aliens, he said: "I do believe that we will someday find other forms of life or a form of life, if not in our solar system then in some of the other solar systems - the billions of solar systems...
  • Is this ET? Mystery of strange radio bursts from space

    Mysterious radio wave flashes from far outside the galaxy are proving tough for astronomers to explain. Is it pulsars? A spy satellite? Or an alien message? BURSTS of radio waves flashing across the sky seem to follow a mathematical pattern. If the pattern is real, either some strange celestial physics is going on, or the bursts are artificial, produced by human – or alien – technology. Telescopes have been picking up so-called fast radio bursts (FRBs) since 2001. They last just a few milliseconds and erupt with about as much energy as the sun releases in a month. Ten have...

    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...

    Washington Examiner ^ | 3/25/2013 | Nikki Schwab
    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...

"I've been watching the airplanes tonight and it wasn't quite as high as them," said David Levy. "You could actually see the triangle shape of the object." Levy was outside Thursday night around 9:30 p.m. with friends in Flat Rock.

    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.

    To cleanse the palate, the science fiction event of a lifetime. Alas, if only it were real. 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...

    The recent discovery of Gliese 581g, an alien planet in the habitable zone of another star, has been an exciting development for scientists probing the galaxy for signs of extraterrestrial life. At least one claim of a possible signal from the planet has already surfaced – and been met with harsh skepticism among the science community. Following the Sept. 29 announcement of the discovery of Gliese 581g, astronomer Ragbir Bhathal, a scientist at the University of Western Sydney, claimed to have detected a suspicious pulse of light nearly two years ago, that came from the same area of the galaxy...

    AT&T announced that it is raising its early termination fee (ETF) for smartphones (a.k.a. the iPhone) from $175 to $325 effective June 1. That gives businesses that are current AT&T subscribers, but seriously considering paying the ETF to switch--especially if the speculation is true that Verizon may soon have the iPhone as well--just one week to decide before it gets much more costly.

    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...
