Residents of New York Thought They Were Witnessing An Alien Spaceship - Called Authorities

The truth is out there — and it’s hovering over The Bronx.
A mysterious light in the sky so freaked out some Hunts Points residents that they called authorities to report their only possible explanation: the arrival of aliens from outer space.
A “flying spaceship” is moving swiftly over East 149th Street and the Bruckner Expressway, one terrified woman told a 911 operator Saturday night, according to an FDNY source.
Juan Marrero said he, too, had a close encounter.
“I look up and see this fireball, ‘Whoosh!’ and then another, ‘Whoosh!’ ” said Marrero, 57, a pigeon fancier who was on the roof of his building at 11:30 p.m. when he saw two bright lights streaking across the sky. “From one side of the sky to the other, too fast for an airplane.”
Andres Morales, 25, said he also saw the speedy orb — and did his best to document his out-of-this-world experience.
“I stuck my hand out the car window and snapped like crazy,” he told The Post. “I don’t know what it was but it was moving crazy fast.”
It’s not the first time locals have said extraterrestrial immigrants boogied down from another galaxy to check out the neighborhood. Unusual lights in the sky were seen in the same area last year, and also in 2011, according to self-described “UFO journalist” Ryan Sprague.
“I definitely think we’re dealing with anomalies that could potentially be nonhuman,” Sprague said.
East 149th Street is close to La Guardia Airport, which could lead to “misidentifications,” Sprague conceded, though he said witnesses should not be discounted.
Those who saw the orb on Saturday, and the one last May, echoed the same description — a light that “just sort of hovered, stationary, and then shot off in the blink of an eye,” he stressed.
“The maneuvers these objects seem to be making don’t fit with any current technology that we’re aware of,” Sprague said.
“They’re not moving, then darting off at unbelievable speeds,” he explained. “I just don’t think that’s something a human could survive.”
But why The Bronx?
“To study us,” one longtime resident offered. “Maybe they want to learn to break dance.”

Proof We Are Not Alone - Full Documentary

Friedman was the first civilian to document the site of the Roswell UFO incident, and supports the hypothesis that it was a genuine crash of an extraterrestrial spacecraft. In 1968 Friedman told a committee of the U.S. House of Representatives that the evidence suggests that Earth is being visited by intelligently controlled extraterrestrial vehicles. Friedman also stated he believed that UFO sightings were consistent with magnetohydrodynamic propulsion.

In 1996, after researching and fact checking the Majestic 12 documents, Friedman said that there was no substantive grounds for dismissing their authenticity.

When Can We Realistically Start Talking To Alien Life?

Are we alone in the cosmos? Or might there be intelligent life elsewhere?
Recently  NASA scientists discussed in very concrete terms the steps to discovering life elsewhere in the universe over the next decade or two.
This year is the 20th anniversary of the discovery of a planet around a star like our own sun, 51 Pegasi. Since then, ground-based surveys and NASA's Kepler satellite have discovered nearly 2,000 confirmed "exoplanets," and thousands more candidates await confirmation.
Many of these planetary systems are quite unlike our own solar system. Some have large planets like Jupiter that orbit their stars far closer than Mercury, the innermost planet in our solar system. But smaller rocky planets like Earth, though harder to find, appear to be even more abundant.
Life on Earth developed in its oceans about a billion years after the planet formed. That suggests that rocky planets with liquid water on their surfaces might also have developed primitive forms of life.
Life as we know it is carbon-based and requires liquid water. Astronomers define the "habitable zone" around a star as the region within which liquid water can exist on a planet's surface. Any closer to the star, the water will boil into vapor; any farther and the water freezes into ice.Extrapolating from discoveries to date, astronomers estimate there are perhaps 40 billion Earth-like, habitable-zone planets in our Milky Way galaxy alone.
Of course, there is a difference between single-celled organisms -- which developed 3.8 billion years ago and remained the most sophisticated form of life for another billion years or so -- and mammals, which appeared about 200 million years ago. And then the humans, who have existed for only 200,000 years.
Intelligent life that can communicate via radio waves with other intelligent life is less than 100 years old here on Earth.
So while planets that develop simple forms of life may be a dime a dozen, the number that have sentient beings with whom to converse -- even assuming they evolved as humans did, with ears and spoken language, or eyes and written language -- is likely to be tiny. And life that can use radio waves has existed on Earth for only 0.000002% of the planet's history -- 100 years out of 4.5 billion. If the half dozen or so rocky, Earth-like exoplanets now known are similar, the odds of discovering humanlike life on them are about the same as, well, winning your state lottery with one ticket.
Of course, if there are 40 billion Earth-like planets out there, the odds improve quite a bit. If they all have histories like the Earth's, there might be 1,000 planets in the Milky Way that could support communicative beings.
But before you start composing your first letter to an alien, think about this: The chance that those beings evolved on exactly the same time scale is minuscule. Another planet's 100 years of brilliance might have occurred a billion years ago, or it might happen a billion years in the future.
A lot depends on how long communication capabilities last. Civilizations that can build huge telescopes and broadcast stations also have the technology to destroy their planet. So the duration of the Communication Age on a planet could be short. Not to mention: The average light-travel-time to such a planet could be tens of thousands of years, so unless humans evolve to be ageless, we're not exchanging IMs with aliens anytime soon.
If advanced civilizations can maintain their capabilities for millions of years or more, the chances of communicating with them are not negligible. But in that case, they are likely to be far more sophisticated than we are (since they developed the capability far earlier than we did) -- so if they wanted us to know they exist, wouldn't they simply tell us?
The SETI project has been listening for such broadcasts for more than 30 years in the search for extraterrestrial intelligence. Probably the most likely form of life on exoplanets is far more primitive. Astronomers have found signatures of organic molecules, the building blocks of life, in the interstellar material that permeates the space between stars in our galaxy.
Possible signatures of living organisms on distant exoplanets include an oxygen-rich atmosphere, such as that created by the first bacteria on Earth, or perhaps methane or carbon dioxide. NASA's James Webb Space Telescope, to be launched in 2018, will look for evidence of life in the atmospheres of rocky, habitable exoplanets.
NASA's rovers have shown that Mars was once much more habitable. It had fresh-water lakes and streams of water running along its surface. Some water still remains, and there may yet be life discovered on Mars. New missions plan to look at Europa and Ganymede, moons of Jupiter that have liquid water below their icy surfaces.
Life elsewhere in the universe, and even elsewhere in our own Milky Way galaxy, is practically inevitable. Signs of life on exoplanets orbiting nearby stars will probably be discovered in the coming decades with advanced telescopes. But the chance of talking to those little green men will probably have to wait for another few hundred million years.

Transparent Triangular UFO Followed By Helicopter - Florida

This is extremely similar to the UFO Sighting that was responsible for the creation of Education Humanity. Here is a sketch I produced when I was interview about the incident

A Florida witness at Naples reported watching a “mostly transparent” triangle-shaped object pass overhead that was followed by a black helicopter, according to testimony in Case 64601 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The incident occurred about 10:30 p.m. on October 18, 2014, when the witness was sitting on a balcony facing north.

“It had three visible circles, one on each point of the triangle, the edges rippled a little so you could just make out the edges of the craft, but the rest of it appeared transparent,” the witness stated.

The sighting was quickly followed by a black helicopter that had a light and made noise.

“It returned on exactly the same path, north to south, about 20 minutes later, but without a helicopter following.”

The witness believes the object may have been man-made.

“At first I thought it was a UFO, but after seeing a MUFON program Hanger 1 I realized it was exactly the same as they showed and it is one of ours. It appeared to be about 30 feet across and flew relatively low – appearing the size of a softball in the sky relative to my position. It flew perfectly straight at a low altitude without any noise.”

The witness believes it may be an experimental aircraft that has not yet been perfected.

“I should have known it was one of ours because the cloaking was not perfect. The edges of the triangle rippled showing its shape and there were three large round lights slightly glowing – one on each end of the three points. I was very surprised it came back about 20 minutes later on the exact same trajectory, but without a helicopter following it.”

Naples is a city in Collier County, Florida, population 19,537.

Florida is currently a UFO Alert Level 5 – with 1.14 sightings per million population based on MUFON February 2015 statistics. Florida received a total of 22 UFO reports in March.

The UFO Alert Rating System is based on five levels – 1 through 5 – where states with 4.01 or higher reports per million residents are rated an Alert 1; 3.01 – 4.0 reports are an Alert 2; 2.51 – 3.0 are an Alert 3; 2.01 – 2.5 are an Alert 4; and those states with 2.0 or lower are rated an Alert 5.

Please remember that most UFO sighting can be explained as something natural or man-made. The above quotes were edited for clarity. Please report UFO activity to MUFON.com.

Bizarre Science Fiction Is Becoming A Reality In Space Travel

Human hibernation possible? Scientists eye new space exploration tech

Researchers are looking to apply hibernation-like techniques already used in medicine for space travel. Trials to test if ‘freezing’ a person for weeks is okay are already underway.
Space scientists clearly see what benefits hibernation could have for the future of space exploration: reduction of food, water, and waste, smaller living quarters, less weight required for supplies, and last but not least, a reduced psychological impact on crew members.
“We see the science has advanced enough to put some of the science fiction into the realm of science reality,” Leopold Summerer, head of advanced concepts team of the European Space Agency, one of the operators of the ISS told The Smithsonian media outlet.
“It doesn’t mean we will have hibernating astronauts anytime soon, but we are learning from nature how to understand some of the things that happen to animals during hibernation, such as preventing bone loss or preventing muscle loss. This is already something that would be a great benefit for long-distance spaceflight,” he added.
A recent NASA-sponsored research project studied the idea of putting astronauts into a state of torpor – or hibernation – for weeks. However, the project now requires further financing.
NASA will be using twin astronauts Scott and Mark Kelly to study the effects of being in space for a long time, and ways to protect humans against harm.
Scientists are also studying animal biology to provide answers: they have observed the Arctic ground squirrel, which sets its internal body temperature at 32 degrees Celsius during the winter, and studied a few kinds of bears that hibernate for half a year.
“We think that if we understand how they do it, we can replicate it in humans,” Kelly Drew, a biochemist at the University of Alaska at Fairbanks, said.
Researchers have discovered a molecule that helps the Arctic squirrel, the A1 adenosine receptor, but they still have no clue as to “what the natural signal is for torpor” and where and when it happens.
While the procedure is in its infancy regards space travel, doctors are using short-time therapeutic hypothermia for patients with brain injuries or cardiac arrest. The treatment lowers the body temperature to improve the blood flow and help the body heal itself.
Romergryko Geocadin, a Hopkins professor of neurology and anesthesiology, uses ice packs, liquid-filled blankets, caps, cooling IV fluids, to decrease the temperature in patients from the normal 36.6 degrees Celsius to 32-33 degrees for up to three days.
“Longer than that, and the whole house of cards starts falling apart,” he said, referring to the increased risks of blood clots, pneumonia and other complications.
However, there are skeptics who don’t believe the human hibernation would work.
Stanford University neurobiologist H. Craig Heller studied black bears and northern brown bears, who hibernate, recycling nitrogen from their waste, and which is why their muscles stay toned. Astronauts can barely walk after returning from a few months in space, even after exercising a lot in space in an attempt to maintain bones and muscles.
So a months-long spaceflight may be undoable, Heller concluded.
