NASA Scientist Says Extraterrestrials Have Probably Visited Earth

NASA scientist: Aliens may have already visited Earth


A NASA scientist says we may have already been visited by aliens - we just didn't notice.

Silvano Colombano, a researcher at NASA's Ames Research Center in Mountain View, California, argued in a paper published Monday that scientists in the search for extraterrestrial intelligence, or SETI, need to rethink some commonly held assumptions about extraterrestrial life - including that aliens would be carbon-based.
“I simply want to point out the fact that the intelligence we might find and that might choose to find us (if it hasn’t already) might not be at all produced by carbon-based organisms like us,” Colombano wrote. He goes on to argue that the extraterrestrials could be “an extremely tiny super-intelligent entity."
In an email to Newsweek, Colombano clarified that the aliens could "ultimately be robotic" in nature. 
Other assumptions Colombano calls on scientists to question are that "interstellar travel is impossible or highly unlikely," that we have not been visited by aliens already and that aliens would use radio waves to communicate.
“If we adopt a new set of assumptions about what forms of higher intelligence and technology we might find, some of those phenomena might fit specific hypotheses, and we could start some serious inquiry.”
As part of his conclusion, Colombano proposed scientists "stretch possibilities as to the nature of space-time and energy" in future SETI research.
The paper was submitted as part of SETI’s Decoding Alien Intelligence workshop.

Do Those Pesky Extraterrestrials Just Keep Leaving Evidence?

Mysterious ‘extraterrestrial artefacts’ could be lurking in our solar system, Harvard astronomers claim
Evidence which proves the existence of extraterrestrial life could be hidden near Earth waiting to be discovered. Top astronomers have called for an urgent study of ‘interstellar objects’ which arrive here from deep space, suggesting some of them could be mysterious alien ‘artefacts’. Last year, the world was stunned when a bizarre cigar-shaped space rock called ‘Oumuamua sped through our solar system, changing direction as it travelled. Although scientists said it was probably a comet and blamed its trajectory on a natural process, we have been unable to unequivocally prove that it wasn’t an alien spacecraft or some other piece of extraterrestrial technology.

Now Harvard University’s Abraham Loeb, one of the astronomers who suggested ‘Oumuamua was alien in origin, and his colleague Amir Siraj have published a paper which suggests evidence which proves the existence of other lifeforms could be lurking right under our species’ nose. The paper claims there could be ‘tens’ of interstellar visitors like ‘Oumuamua floating through the solar system. ‘Observing or visiting such objects could allow searching for signs of extraterrestrial life locally, without the need to send interstellar probes,’ the pair wrote. ‘Exploration of trapped interstellar objects could potentially help reveal the prospects of life in other star systems as well as extraterrestrial artefacts,’ they added. It’s important to remember that Loeb and his partner are not saying that interstellar visitors are definitely alien artefacts. The objects could also have formed naturally in other star systems, before being expelled to begin their lonely journey through the void of space.


‘Photographing or visiting these trapped objects would allow for learning about the conditions in other planetary systems, saving the need to send interstellar probes,’ the astronomers added. In a previous paper, Shmuel Bialy and Abraham Loeb suggested the elongated asteroid ‘Oumuamua might have an ‘artificial origin’. ‘‘Oumuamua may be a fully operational probe sent intentionally to Earth vicinity by an alien civilisation,’ they wrote. MORE: Nasa shares a picture of a ‘flying saucer from outer space that crash-landed on Earth’ Their research suggests several explanations for the formation of ‘Oumuamua, which is regarded as a ‘new class’ of space object. It sped past Earth and looped around our sun at 196,000 mph and was about half a mile long.

The object was so unusual that Nasa said it had ‘never seen a natural object with such extreme proportions in the solar system before’. Initially, the fact ‘Oumuamua appeared to speed up led astronomers to suggest it was a comet. These icy objects accelerate due to a process called outgassing, in which the sun heats up a comet and causes it to release gases. But in their paper, the Harvard stargazers ruled out the possibility it was an active comet. They proposed that it was powered along by ‘solar radiation pressure’ produced by the sun, but went on to make more ‘exotic’ suggestions to explain its acceleration.

The pair suggested it may have been a type of spaceship called a ‘light sail’ featuring a large and very thin sheet that is blown along through space by the light produced by stars. When it travelled through the solar system, it was tumbling end-over-end, which could also mean it was a piece of space wreckage left behind by aliens. ‘Considering an artificial origin, one possibility is that ‘Oumuamua is a lightsail, floating in interstellar space as a debris from an advanced technological equipment,’ the astronomers continued. ‘Lightsails with similar dimensions have been designed and constructed by our own civilization, including the IKAROS project and the Starshot Initiative ‘The lightsail technology might be abundantly used for transportation of cargos between planets or between stars.’ They said alien civilisations may jettison used cargo ships, resulting in space debris that looks a lot like Asteroid ‘Oumuamua.

Russia Prepares Nuclear Spaceship

Russia reveals nuclear spaceship that will fly to Mars ‘in very near future


Russia has revealed a "spacecraft of the future" that could one day put humans on Mars.
Roscosmos showed off concept designs for the sci-fi spacecraft – but failed to say exactly when it would launch.
The spaceship is currently in development at Russia's Keldysh Research Centre, which is racing to create the nuclear propulsion engine.
"Today, the Keldysh Centre is working on the development of a spacecraft equipped with more powerful engines – a new class of nuclear power units, which do not need either the sunlight or solar batteries for operation," said a spokesperson for Roscosmos.
Nuclear space travel could revolutionize the quest to hop between planets in our solar system.
Space scientists currently struggle with current methods of propulsion, like chemical propellants or low-power electric engines that rely on solar batteries.
These methods of space travel are slow, which creates problems for astronauts on board the craft.
"A person should not spend more than a year or two in space," said Vladimir Koshlakov, who heads up the Keldysh Centre.
"Nuclear-powered spacecraft will allow a relatively fast journey, and, most importantly, a return flight.
"This technology has special significance for interplanetary flights and research of far planets."
According to Russia's TASS news agency, Koshlakov believes that a flight to Mars using a nuclear propulsion engine is "technically feasible in the near future".
The space expert reckons it could take just over half a year for humans to travel to Mars using the nuclear system.
"[The journey] to the Moon will last several days, yes, while a flight to Mars will last about seven or eight months," said Koshlakov, speaking to the Rossiiskaya Gazeta.
Roscosmos has already been testing ground trials for the engine's cooling system, which are believed to have been a success.
And the space agency also has plans to make a prototype of a "megawatt-class" nuclear engine, which would be used for "flights into deep space."
This isn't the first time Russia has experimented with nuclear technology for space travel.
Between 1970 and 1988, the Soviet Union launched 32 spacecraft with thermoelectric nuclear power reactors on board.
And Russia has been testing nuclear rocket engines since the sixties.

Mysterious UFO Sighting Over Ireland Will Be Investigated By Aviation Authorities

UFO investigation launched by Irish aviation officials after pilots flying BA and Virgin Airlines jets report seeing mysterious bright lights 'moving fast' above the country

  • BA pilot on flight from Canada to London reported 'very bright light' over Ireland
  • She said the object came up on the left side before it 'veered to the north'
  • Pilot of Virgin Airlines jet saw 'multiple objects following same sort of trajectory'
  • Irish Aviation Authority is investigating the UFO sightings after filing a report

A UFO investigation is underway in Ireland after pilots flying BA and Virgin Airlines jets reported seeing mysterious bright lights as they crossed the country.
The Irish Aviation Authority launched the probe after sightings on November 9 at around 7.40am.

The pilot of British Airways flight BA94 from Montreal to London contacted Shannon Air Traffic Control after seeing the object on the left-hand side of her Boeing 787.
She asked whether military exercises were taking place, according to Airlive.
Air traffic control reportedly said nothing was showing on their radar systems, to which the unnamed pilot replied: 'OK. It was moving so fast.'
She added that after approaching on the left side, it 'rapidly veered to the north'. She described it as a 'very bright light' that 'disappeared at very high speed'.

The pilot of Virgin Airlines flight VS76 from Orlando to Manchester then reported seeing a similar thing, the website reports.
He described it as a 'meteor or another object making some kind of re-entry' and said it was 'multiple objects following the same sort of trajectory – very bright from where we were.'
Both planes were flying in high-level airspace - an altitude from between 28,500ft and 42,000ft.
Airlive says a third pilot also saw the bizarre lights and that the Irish Aviation Authority has filed a report with the sightings due to be 'investigated under the normal confidential occurrence investigation process'.

Interstellar Object Could Be From Intelligent Extraterrestrials

Mysterious interstellar object could be 'lightsail' sent from another civilization


NASA may have ruled that Oumuamua, the first interstellar object ever spotted in our system is a "metallic or rocky object" approximately 400 meters (1,312 feet) in length and 40 meters (131 feet) wide, but a new study from the Harvard Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics says it could be something much more exciting – it could be "a lightsail of artificial origin" sent from another civilization.
The study, which was posted online earlier this month, suggests that Oumuamua's strange "excess acceleration" could be artificial in nature, as it has been implied that it is not an active comet.
"Considering an artificial origin, one possibility is that ‘Oumuamua is a lightsail, floating in interstellar space as a debris from an advanced technological equipment," researchers wrote in the paper.
The paper continues: "Lightsails with similar dimensions have been designed and constructed by our own civilization, including the IKAROS project and the Starshot Initiative. The lightsail technology might be abundantly used for transportation of cargos between planets or between stars."
They even theorized that Oumuamua "may be a fully operational probe sent intentionally to Earth vicinity by an alien civilization," though that scenario was called "exotic."
The paper was written by postdoctoral researcher Shmuel Bialy and professor Abraham Loeb, the director at the CfA's Institute for Theory and Computation.
Other studies have suggested that other "Oumuamua-like objects" will potentially enter our solar system, with some potentially carrying life.
"The likelihood of Galactic panspermia is strongly dependent upon the survival lifetime of the putative organisms as well as the velocity of the transporter," according to a paper published in The Astronomical Journal by Manasvi Lingam and the aforementioned Loeb.
They added: "Velocities between 10−100 km s−1 result in the highest probabilities. However, given large enough survival lifetimes, even hypervelocity objects traveling at over 1000 km s−1 have a significant chance of capture, thereby increasing the likelihood of panspermia."

Professor David Jacobs Speaks Out About the Reality of Alien Abduction

First and foremost, the abductees are not allowed to remember what happened to them." ~ Dr. David Jacobs 

Amongst the most controversial people in the world of Ufology is David Jacobs, Ph.D. According to Wikipedia, the recently retired Associate Professor of History at Temple University specializing in 20th century American history and culture. Jacobs is particularly well known in the field of Ufology for his research and authoring of books on the subject of alleged alien abductions.

Jacobs obtained his Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin–Madison in 1973, in the field of intellectual history. He wrote his dissertation on the controversy over unidentified flying objects in America.  A revised edition of his dissertation was published as The UFO Controversy in America by Indiana University Press in 1975 and sold out (very unusual for an academic work).

 As a faculty member of the Department of History at Temple University, Jacobs specialized in the history of 20th-century American popular culture. He stated that his current research interests “involve a delineation of the role of anomalous experiences in personal and cultural life.”[3] For over 25 years[1] Jacobs has taught a course on “UFOs in American Society.”

In this exclusive interview for EMN shot at Contact in The Desert, Joshua Tree California, Jacobs suggests that the abduction phenomenon is not a benevolent, other-dimensional spiritual experience like so many people report. Rather, Jacobs’ research through hypnotic regression with alleged alien abductees suggests that alien-human hybrids are engaged in a covert program of infiltration into human society worldwide. 

“These human hybrids are training to live here,” Jacobs asserts, “and they are being trained by the abductees.” And what is the end game according to Dr. David Jacobs? “The planetary acquisition through the creation of human-like hybrids.” “The more you look at this”, says Jacobs, “the more rational it becomes.”
