As a species, we have made magnificent strides in robotic space exploration in the past decade. From exploring Pluto close-up for the first time to discovering our solar system is rife with underground liquid oceans, we now understand our little neighborhood of planets and moons better than ever before. It’s time to start talking about how we are […]
It appears that the sun orbiting spacecraft are seeing some bombardment of meteor debris.
Stereo-A Cor2 shows many examples of what appear to be parts of a meteor shower however some images are very perplexing and seems to show Unidentified Flying Objects orbiting the sun.
Especially two cubes and a massive spacecraft streaking through space, leaving an enormous long comet-like tail behind are very unique.
The High Resolution Imaging camera on board the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter has captured a strange spot on the surface of the planet Mars.
According to NASA/JPL the remarkable spot is a small crater on North Polar layered deposits.
But is it just a crater? If you look at the original black and white HIRISE image then it seems as something has crashed, leaving a trail behind or could it be the entrance to an underground alien base, given the unnatural looking structure?
Using Google Mars (coordinates: 81.3° 91.5°) and we compare the object depicted in the Google Mars image with the original NASA/JPL black and white image then it is amazing to discover that the spot looks quite different and we may wonder whether they have edited the Google Mars image to hide something or not.
Crashed UFO, underground base entrance or just a crater?

A house-sized asteroid due to pass Earth in October is currently “damn close”, the European Space Agency says. The asteroid is forecast to speed inside the moon’s orbit at 27,300 miles (43,935km) – an eighth of the distance between the Earth and the moon. The ESA says it is far enough to just miss our […]
intelligence have been created, but they might not be followed.
|First came the suggestion that an “alien megastructure” had been observed around KIC 8462852, a.k.a. Tabby’s Star. Months later, people were talking about a signal seen by a Russian telescope that some thought was transmitted from the environs of a stellar cousin of|
the sun. And not long after that, the Cyclopean Arecibo antenna in Puerto Rico reported weird signals that seemed to come from the dwarf star Ross 128, a scant 11 light-years away.
These three claims purporting to show the existence of aliens haven’t panned out. But what happens if some future claim does? What preparations are in place to deal with the discovery of a radio signal or a laser flash that would prove beyond doubt that we have cosmic compeers? Does the government have a plan? Does anyone?
… Back in 1989, when a now-defunct NASA program to search for extraterrestrial intelligence was gaining steam, protocols were drafted to spell out best practices in case the search proved successful. These were later updated and streamlined by the International Academy of Astronautics SETI Permanent Committee. (Click here to see the revised protocols.)
| Don’t know about you, but I’m loving those mystery lights on Ceres as NASA’s surveillance probe, Dawn, bears down on the biggest chunk of real estate in the asteroid belt. And not because of the prospects for discovering alien activity – they’re remote, at best – but because of the opportunity to witness, again, the ritual disconnect that characterizes institutional science whenever The Great Taboo legitimately insinuates itself into a news cycle.
Let’s go back a few years when, after half a century of logging zilch in the Great ET Radio Signal Experiment, SETI pioneer Jill Tarter proposed
a new name for their endeavors, the Search for Extraterrestrial Technology (SETT). This was a tacit grudging concession that maybe radio astronomers had been working with a flawed model. In 2011, the International Journal of Astrobiology published a paper by astrophysicists Martin Elvis and Duncan Forgan proposing an even more specific tack, that maybe Earthlings ought to consider scanning the asteroid belt for evidence of ET “macro-engineering projects.” Translation: mining operations. Made sense. After all, they noted, asteroids are repositories for raw material like gold, platinum and silver, the kind of stuff you’d likely need to repair or refuel extended planetary missions.
And, as Forgan would hypothesize two years later in the IJA, ET wouldn’t even have to bend the known laws of physics to reach the rocky debris zone between Jupiter and Mars, no matter which part of the Milky Way he/she/it came from. Upon crunching the numbers, Forgan and a mathematician hypothesized that robotic technologies could have mapped this galaxy well below light speeds, in about 10 million years. On the cosmic scale of time, that’s no big deal.
So here’s what’s going on. In 2007, NASA hurls an unmanned vehicle toward the asteroid belt to look for clues to the formation of our solar system. Destination: “dwarf planets” Vesta and Ceres. Dawn enters a 14-month mapping orbit over Vesta in 2011, then moves on toward the bigger prize. In February, as it closes to within 29,000 miles of Ceres, Dawn’s cameras detect something totally off the charts – lights on the surface. Their luminosity doesn’t appear to be significantly affected by different sun angles. Two months and 25,000 miles closer, their intensity is still unblinking. Planetary scientists are stumped; at the Jet Propulsion Lab’s website, PR flacks do a very savvy thing by letting visitors vote on the most likely suspects: “volcano,” “geyser,” “salt deposit,” “ice,” “rock,” and “other.” Wonder what “other” could be. Hmm. Anyway, we’ll get an even better peek by summer’s end, when Dawn dips to within 900 miles of the surface.
No matter what those lights are all about, this sort of suspense is cool. Talk about a teaching opportunity for schools.
Now let’s review some of NASA’s recent headline-grabbing statements. In 2014, given our ongoing exoplanet transiting searches and the impending exploration of more local worlds like Europa, space agency scientists predicted Earthlings will discover ET life within 20 years. That forecast was reiterated just last week at the Astrobiology Science Conference in Chicago. In fact, NASA Associate Administrator for the Science Mission Directorate (there’s a mouthful) and former astronaut John Grunsfeld suggested that ET civilizations might already have detected us, the same way we’re locating and confirming the existence of deep-space planets. Quote:
“We put atmospheric signatures that guarantee someone with a large telescope 20 light years away could detect us. If there is life out there, intelligent life, they’ll know we’re here.”
Left unsaid, what none in that sheltered crowd wants to contemplate: And if they discover us before we discover them, maybe they’re already a lot closer than we think. But of course, there was no room in Chicago for a discussion of UFOs. That would be a little too declasse, like farting in church. Oh, and just to make sure nobody got terribly excited, coverage of last week’s Windy City pow-wow also included a canned statement from NASA chief scientist Ellen Stefan. In April, during a discussion about Mars, she drew distinctions between the discovery of biological life and some other silly alternative like, well, the 2011 peer-reviewed paper’s “targeted asteroid mining” scenario. “We are not talking about little green men,” she insisted. “We are talking about little microbes.”
Stofan could’ve said “intelligent life.” But she went for the gag line instead. Knowing full well how much everybody loves microbes.
Hey, no one wants to look like an idiot as we approach the biggest discovery of all time, wherever that may be. The solution to the Ceres lights will likely fall far short of little green men. But the language we employ as we draw closer to the inevitability doesn’t inspire much confidence; it suggests we’re deeply conflicted in our enthusiasm for confirming The Other. Or at least the people at the top of NASA appear to be. Fortunately, we can console ourselves with the knowledge that science and politics never mix.
On March 11, 2012 a giant sphere appears in the sun’s corona that seems to harvest energy from the sun before it zips off.
The curious object, interpreted as giant UFO, caused a stir among the UFO community but was quickly dismissed by NASA who explained that it was a coronal cavity associated with a filament.
But not everyone was convinced by NASA’s explanation and to date this remarkable event is being analyzed by UFO hunters, like UFOvni2012, who after analyzing the event again, claims that there was a second sphere in the sun’s corona.
In the next video UFOvni2012 shows us the giant sphere and the supposed second sphere. Decide for yourself whether these spheres are alien spacecraft or coronal cavities associated with filaments.
NASA is hiring a planetary protection officer with a salary of up to $187,000. The job was created after the signing of the Outer Space Treaty of 1967. Planetary protection officers are tasked with making sure humans don’t contaminate planets, moons, and other objects in space. They’re also supposed to help prevent any alien microbes […]
The nation’s space agency may or may not be trying to hide something, but it just did something extremely suspicious. As reported by the U.K.’s Daily Mail, NASA officials recently discovered a trove of historical tapes from the Apollo era, when the space agency was sending astronauts to the Moon — and then destroyed them after they turned […]
There is always much debate about the nature of the mysterious cube-shaped objects near the sun often spotted in NASA’s satellite images.
While some people say these objects are image processing errors, others believe such a cube-shaped object is in fact NASA’s way of hiding unidentified flying objects of extraterrestrial origin.
Since it seems impossible to find out if there is really a UFO behind such a cube-shaped object it will be always the question whether it is NASA’s way to hide UFOs or not.
But what if something goes wrong during NASA’s image processing and we can take a look behind such a cube-shaped object near the sun.
That is exactly what happened in 2014, when NASA accidentally revealed SOHO LASCO C2 imagery showing an illuminated Unidentified Flying Object(s) behind a cube-shaped object.
