  • Over 1,000 New Asteroids Discovered Hidden in Hubble Archives

    05/18/2022 6:40:01 AM PDT · by Red Badger · 8 replies ^ | 17 May 2022 | EVAN GOUGH, UNIVERSE TODAY
    Researchers have found over 1,700 asteroid trails in archived Hubble data from the last 20 years. While many of the asteroids are previously known, more than 1,000 are not. What good are another 1,000 asteroids? Like all asteroids, they could hold valuable clues to the Solar System's history. As time passes and more and more telescopes perform more and more observations, their combined archival data keeps growing. Sometimes discoveries lurk in that data that await new analytical tools or renewed efforts from scientists before they're revealed. That's what happened in an effort called the Hubble Asteroid Hunter. In 2019 a...
  • ‘A Skull and Bones-type vibe’: Spy agencies grapple with how much to share at UFO hearing

    As Congress prepares to hold the first public hearing on UFOs in half a century, the Pentagon and intelligence agencies are feuding internally over how much to cooperate with demands to investigate and share what they know, according to current and former national security officials. Pentagon officials are under increasing pressure to carry out Congress’ recent mandate to establish a permanent effort to coordinate research into reports of highly advanced aircraft of unknown origin intruding into protected airspace. *snip* But there is a tug of war among competing factions inside the national security bureaucracy that will make it difficult for...
  • NASA's Curiosity Rover Spotted a 'Doorway' on Mars...Though it looks like the entrance to an alien tomb, mission scientists say it's a natural feature.

The Curiosity rover took a photo of the odd structure on May 7, 2022, as it climbed Mount Sharp on Mars.Image: NASA/JPL-Caltech/MSSS NASA’s Curiosity rover took a photo of a Lovecraftian feature on the surface of Mars last week: a seemingly rectangular and shadowy opening in the planet’s exposed rock that looks as if it leads into the Martian underground. The image was captured on May 7 by the Curiosity rover’s Mastcam while it ascended Mount Sharp. While the grainy black-and-white image may have conspiracy theorists over...

    A House subcommittee is scheduled to hold next week the first open congressional hearing on unidentified aerial vehicles in more than half a century, with testimony from two top defense intelligence officials. The hearing comes after the release last June of a report requested by Congress on “unidentified aerial phenomena.” The nine-page “Preliminary Assessment” from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence focused on 144 incidents dating back to 2004 and was able to explain only one. The report declined to draw inferences, saying that the available reporting was “largely inconclusive” and noting that limited and inconsistent data created...

    Several U.S. Navy personnel who served aboard the USS Ronald Reagan (CVN-76) say they encountered a mysterious, orb-shaped flying object in 2004 while on duty off the eastern coast of the United States. Nearly two decades later, the incident still defies explanation. Witnesses who were on the nuclear-powered Nimitz-class supercarrier the night of the incident describe seeing a 20 to 40-foot wide luminous round object, which suddenly appeared and began to hover over the ship’s flight deck. *snip* THE USS RONALD REAGAN UAP ENCOUNTER During The Debrief’s ongoing investigation, we have identified and interviewed five witnesses who were aboard the...
  • NASA to launch naked pictures of humans to space in hope of ‘attracting aliens’ (from sublime to ridiculous)

    The NY Post ^ | 5/3/22 | Charlotte Edwards, The Sun
    NASA scientists plan to launch pictures of naked humans into space in the hope of luring aliens to us. The depictions will also include an invitation to respond should an intelligent alien race find the space nudes. Fortunately, the hypothetical aliens shouldn’t be too shocked by the unsolicited nudes. The pictures aren’t graphic photographs of naked humans but a drawing of a naked man and a woman next to a depiction of DNA. The man and woman are waving in an attempt to look more inviting.

    This is an illustration of an asteroid. NASA/JPL-Caltech ===================================================================== I was cruising through the Google News science section this morning when a story popped out saying NASA has estimated a space rock the size of the Great Pyramid may hit our planet on May 6, and even that an impact is "likely." That's the kind of message that can get your adrenaline pumping. But don't fear. Asteroid 2009 JF1 won't be smacking into us. A quick peek around Twitter shows people expressing concern about the headlines, many of them asking the same question: Will it hit Earth? Fortunately, it will...

    VIDEO AT LINK................ Rocket Lab has successfully grabbed a rocket coming down from space with a helicopter. The impressive feat is a new way to make sure that rockets don’t end up in the ocean, on the ground, or simply burning up in the atmosphere. The launch was delayed by a few days and the rocket eventually took off from New Zealand’s Mahia Peninsula at 18:49 ET on May 2. To emphasize the company’s connection to the Southern Hemisphere country, the mission was named “There and Back Again” in homage to The Hobbit. The world imagined by Tolkien has now...

    In two weeks' time, the European Southern Observatory (ESO) is going to present the world with new information about our Milky Way. It's anyone's guess what the announcement will be, but based on what we know of their recent efforts, there's reason to get excited – the results being presented are from the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) project, which was responsible for producing the first-ever image of a black hole in 2019. For years now the EHT project has been studying the heart of our home galaxy, the Milky Way, which is most likely home to a supermassive black hole...
  • Rep. Tim Burchett on UFO findings: ‘It’s a bogus cover-up’ (by the Pentagon)

    Rep. Tim Burchett (R-Tenn.) believes the Pentagon knows more than what they’re saying following the latest secret briefings on UFOs. “There’s an arrogance in government at that level that we cannot handle what’s going on out there,” Burchett said Monday as a guest of News Nation’s “On Balance with Leland Vittert.” “It’s a bogus cover-up. It doesn’t fit and it’s about power and control,” he continued. Burchett has joined lawmakers on both sides of the aisle seeking to apply pressure on members of the Senate Intelligence and Armed Services committees after disappointment in their latest data collection efforts. *snip* “I...

    Lawmakers receiving the latest secret briefings on UFOs say national security agencies still aren’t taking seriously the reports of highly advanced aircraft of unknown origin violating protected airspace. *snip* But some leading sponsors of recent legislation want more analysts and surveillance systems dedicated to determining the aircrafts’ origin — and not just more reports of their existence. *snip* “I don’t trust the Department of Defense to get this right since leadership there has always been part of a cover-up,” said Rep. Tim Burchett (R-Tenn.), a member of the House Transportation Aviation Subcommittee. “It is clear from the public evidence that...

    Multi-instrumentalist who played with Tangerine Dream and Ash Ra Tempel before admired solo career is hailed for his ‘innovative spirit’ Klaus Schulze, the German multi-instrumentalist whose work with drones, pulses and synthesisers was hugely influential on generations of electronic music makers, has died aged 74. Frank Uhle, managing director of Schulze’s label SVP, wrote: “We lose and will miss a good personal friend – one of the most influential and important composers of electronic music – a man of conviction and an exceptional artist. Our thoughts in this hour are with his wife, sons and family. His always cheerful nature,...

    Loud fireball spotted over southern Mississippi mostly heard, hardly seen. A fiery meteor streaked across the morning skies in southern Mississippi yesterday, April 27, 2022. More than 30 eyewitnesses in the states of Arkansas, Louisiana, and Mississippi reported seeing a bright fireball at 8:03 a.m. CDT. The sighting was soon followed by numerous reports of loud booms heard in Claiborne County, Mississippi, and surrounding counties. Approximately 22,000 miles out in space, NOAA’s Geostationary Lightning Mappers (GLM) onboard the Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellites (GOES) 16 and 17 detected several bright flashes associated with the fragmentation of this bolide, or exceptionally bright...

    Illustration of an asteroid. (NASA/JPL/Caltech) A gigantic "potentially hazardous" asteroid that may be twice the size of the Empire State Building is set to zoom past Earth Thursday (April 28), according to NASA. The asteroid, named 418135 (2008 AG33), has an estimated diameter between 1,150 and 2,560 feet (350 to 780 meters) and will break into Earth's orbit at a blistering 23,300 mph (37,400 km/h). Thankfully, the asteroid is expected to skim past our planet without any risk of impact. At its closest point, the asteroid – traveling at more than 30 times the speed of sound – will come...

    Jordan Hatmaker was skydiving in November when the worst thing that could happen happened: Her parachute didn’t open. The plane was more than 13,000 feet above the ground when she jumped, and she hit the ground at about 80 miles per hour. Hatmaker’s reserve parachute did actually deploy, but it made her main parachute pop out at the same time. “They pulled away from each other in the air and then dragged me down in kind of a spiral motion,” she explained. Once she realized she was going down, Hatmaker had one minute before she hit the ground. Hatmaker believes...

While he didn't seem to notice the splatter on his jacket, many folks did - including the bird responsible for the mess. "Even the Birds know this guy is full of [poop emoji]," tweeted one user. "Biden wasn't the only one spouting poop today," commented another Twitter user.
  • A Powerful 'Space Laser' Has Been Detected Beaming FROM Deep Space

    Powerful, radio-wavelength laser light has been detected emanating from the greatest distance across deep space yet. It's a type of massless cosmic object called a megamaser, and its light has traveled for a jaw-dropping 5 billion light-years to reach us here on Earth. The astronomers who discovered it using the MeerKAT radio telescope in South Africa have named it Nkalakatha – an isiZulu word meaning "big boss". The discovery has been accepted into The Astrophysical Journal Letters and is available on preprint server arXiv. "It's impressive that, with just a single night of observations, we've already found a record-breaking megamaser,"...

    Hundreds of military officers have had injuries including brain damage and burns after encounters with UFOs, a top brain expert and former CIA officer has revealed. Detroit Professor Christopher Green was commissioned around 2010 by a secret $22million defense program monitoring UFOs, to write a paper on injuries from close encounters with 'anomalous' craft. In an exclusive interview with the forensic neuroimaging expert, who has worked with the CIA since the 1960s, said he dealt with 'hundreds of patients' including special forces officers and other military personnel hurt after interacting with unidentified craft, some of whom later died.
