    The Sun (UK) ^ | 19th April 2017 | Tom Michael
    RUSSIA has claimed it can disable the entire US Navy in one fell swoop using powerful electronic signal jamming. A news report from the country – where the media is essentially controlled by the state – said the technology could render planes, ships and missiles useless. The newsreader says: “Today, our Russian Electronic Warfare (REW) troops can detect and neutralise any target from a ship’s system and a radar, to a satellite.” The news report claims a single Russian war plane flew several times around American destroyer the USS Donald Cook in the Black Sea several years ago, disabling its...

    There are no words for this rambling Meet the Press interview with Governor Moonbeam. Well there are words. But throwing up your hands is just easier. Here's Governor Brown on President Trump's proposed border wall. GOV. JERRY BROWN: The wall, to me, is ominous. It reminds me too much of the Berlin Wall. When I see that 30-foot wall, I worry somehow, "Are they trying to keep me in, or keep them out?" I really think people ought to be careful because there's a lot of odor here of kind of a strongman, kind of a world where you want...

  • Alien mothership? HUGE circular shadow floats past ISS in remarkable NASA footage

    The bizarre footage shows part of the space station looking out onto a black nothingness. For no apparent reason, the dark outlook begins to get lighter as some sort of circular object floats past. It continues to get lighter and lighter as the shadow is lifted. In his caption to the video, he pointed out he wasn’t for certain saying it was a “huge mothership or any sort of alien spacecraft” but that it “certainly looks unusual”. Alien enthusiast Streetcap1 posted the footage to his YouTube channel on Saturday (March 19). As he watched the mysterious shape move past, he...

    Professor Stephen Hawking says he is planning to travel into space on Richard Branson's Virgin Galactic. The physicist and cosmologist, 75, said he had not expected to have the opportunity to experience space but that the Virgin boss had offered him a seat. Discussing the meaning of happiness on Good Morning Britain, he said: 'My three children have brought me great joy. 'And I can tell you what will make me happy, to travel in space. 'I thought no one would take me but Richard Branson has offered me a seat on Virgin Galactic, and I said yes immediately.'

    Considered lost since 2009 when radio contact with it was lost, India's Chandrayaan-1 spacecraft has been found orbiting the moon. The spacecraft has been found by NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, California. Earlier, JPL's calculations indicated that Chandrayaan-1 was circling some 200 kilometres above the lunar surface, but it was generally considered "lost." Chandrayaan-1 was India's first mission to the moon, was launched successfully on October 22, 2008 from Sriharikota. ISRO says the "satellite made more than 3400 orbits around the moon and the mission was concluded when the communication with the spacecraft was lost on August 29,...

    Sam Monfort – a Doctoral Candidate from the department of Human Factors & Applied Cognition at George Mason University – produced a series of visuals that illustrate the history of UFO sightings. And based on the visualized trends, some rather interesting conclusions can be drawn. The most obvious is that the geographical distribution of sightings is hardly even. For starters, reports in the USA were equal to about 2500 sightings per 10 million people. This is almost 300 times higher than the global average. Based on individual states, the concentration of sightings was also quite interesting. Apparently, more sightings happen...

    A mystifying video of what looks like a fireball traversing the Tasmanian sky got UFO believers excited, and they weren't swayed by the federal government's explanation. The federal air navigation services provider Airservices Australia told ABC the fascinating display was simply an aircraft 'as it passed over Australian airspace.' ... The video, uploaded by a southeastern Tasmania resident to Facebook on Tuesday, shows a light object travelling across clear morning sky. As the camera zooms in, the object appears to be ablaze, leaving a trail of orange that splits into two tails. Experts said the contrails created by the aircraft...

    NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope has revealed the first known system of seven Earth-size planets around a single star. Three of these planets are firmly located in the habitable zone, the area around the parent star where a rocky planet is most likely to have liquid water. The discovery sets a new record for greatest number of habitable-zone planets found around a single star outside our solar system. All of these seven planets could have liquid water – key to life as we know it – under the right atmospheric conditions, but the chances are highest with the three in the...

  • Mark Levin and Ben Shapiro credit themselves for Trump nominating Gorsuch

    Mark R. Levin ‏@marklevinshow 23m23 minutes ago Thank you conservatives. No thanks to the pompom boys. http://fb.me/8ARjGokf6 Lightweight Ben Shapiro, "They’re fully within their rights to mock those Constitutional conservatives – like me! – who said that Trump would never appoint a conservative to the Court. But they are ignoring one rather crucial point: if had been up to them, they wouldn’t have pressed Trump for a damn thing. Trump appointed a conservative to the high court because he needed to please Constitutional conservatives. He didn’t do it because he is a deeply knowledgeable Constitutional scholar (he once said in...

    A mysterious UFO-shaped cloud baffled skiers when it appeared in the sky over Sweden. The bizarre cloud floated in the sky over ski resorts Ĺre and Duved on Thursday, prompting some to speculate that Martians had arrived for a day on the slopes. Many rushed to take pictures of the unusual phenomenon and posted them on social media. "I thought it was pretty cool," one of them, Elvira Kuper, told broadcaster SVT. Experts explained it was a so-called lenticular cloud, which forms over mountain peaks when the air is forced to rise as it hits the hillside. As it cools...
