Unidentified objects in the sky aren’t new, but the UFO as we know it now—a mysterious, saucer-shaped object—first came into focus in the 1940s. The U.S. government had no choice but to investigate reports about them; the second World War had ended and the Cold War was revving up, so strange things in the sky could be some kind of threat.
In his upcoming book published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, Extraterrestrial: The First Sign of Intelligent Life Beyond Earth, Harvard astronomer Avi Loeb makes a provocative assertion: The mysterious “cigar-shaped object” that NASA dubbed “1I/2017 U1 ‘Oumuamua” was junk from an alien civilization.
Researchers with the Breakthrough Listen project have detected a curious signal originating from Proxima Centauri, the nearest star to the Sun. The signal has been designated as a possible alien transmission, but like so many examples in the past, this latest detection is probably another dead end.
There’s growing evidence UFOs are real, and that evidence doesn’t just comefrom former Blink-182 frontman Tom DeLonge. It also comes from the most legit witnesses imaginable: The highly capable and well-trained pilots of the United States Navy. Continue reading NAVY PILOTS REPORT MULTIPLE STRANGE UFO ENCOUNTERS
Pilots flying in Irish airspace were surprised when they came across “very bright” UFOs. Continue reading Pilots Spot ‘Very Bright’ UFOs in Irish Airspace
Here’s a riddle: If an alien life form is, well, alien, how will we know what it is? DNA and RNA are the building blocks of life on Earth, but the molecules of life might differ substantially on another planet. So if scientists combing, say, the potentially habitable waters of Jupiter’s moon Europa were to stumble across a new life form, how could they know what they had discovered? Continue reading How Scientists Could Use DNA Sequencing to Identify Alien Life
There are lots of ways to search for technologically advanced aliens. We canlisten for them with radio telescopes. We can analyze the atmospheres of other plants to search for biosignatures, or look for their laser light shows.
