7 Incredible Ways That Science Is Desperately Attempting To Contact Intelligent Alien Life

7 Amazing Methods We’re Using To Contact Aliens





The internet is filled with conspiracy theorists and crackpots desperately trying to tell us that aliens have visited earth, abducted cows, or taken over the US government. This kind of tabloid fodder distracts us from the fact that scientists are working their asses off in trying to answer one of our most pressing questions: are we alone in the universe?

There is a whole branch of astronomy dedicated to communication with extraterrestrial intelligence (known as CETI), and Stephen Hawking is pretty big on aliens himself, famously saying back in 2010 that we should be wary of advanced alien civilisations because they’d look “to conquer and colonize whatever planets they could reach”.

Despite that ominous statement, Hawking recently announced Breakthrough Listen, the most far-reaching project yet in listening out for alien communications. While he maintained that an advanced alien civilization might regard us as nothing more than bacteria (thanks, Steve), he concluded about alien life that “we are alive. We are intelligent. We must know”.

If making contact with alien forces spells the end of mankind, so be it. We’re doomed on Earth anyway, and at least an alien invasion will give humanity something other than itself to blame for its inevitable demise.

7. Infrared Technology




While Infrared is slowly being pushed aside by Bluetooth in everyday technologies like TV remotes, it’s always had a higher calling. IR technology has played a crucial role in mapping out space, and now it’s being taken on to help in the search for extra-terrestrial life. Who’s laughing now, Bluetooth?

Astronomers at the Lick Observatory in the US have begun using infrared light detectors to try and intercept interstellar signals. Powerful infrared signals can be momentarily brighter even than stars, which means they’re visible across thousands of light years of space.

Uniquely among SETI projects, this one is searching for optical signals rather than radio signals from extraterrestrials. While detecting an extra-terrestrial IR signal would require it to be pointing in earth’s direction, it marks an experimental new means of seeking out alien life.



6. Sending Gold Vinyl Records Into Space






The Voyager 1 probe, launched in 1977, is the farthest-from-earth object humanity has ever created. At this moment, it’s around three times further from the sun than Pluto, and is now thought to be traversing interstellar space.

Tucked away inside the Voyager 1 is the Voyager Golden Record, a vinyl record filled with sounds, music, and speech (in 55 different languages) that captures the things happening here on earth. Some of the specific sounds include squealing monkeys, Beethoven’s String Quartet, and a personal greeting from Jimmy Carter.

The Golden Record idea works under a lot of assumptions – that the craft makes it to its destination star (the ETA is 40,000 years), that there’s extra-terrestrial life surrounding that star and finally, that aliens will know how to play a vinyl record. Luckily, we left universal instructions on how to play it, just in case.


5. The Breakthrough Initiative



In July 2015, Stephen Hawking inaugurated humanity’s latest attempt to reach out into the cold dark of space in the hope of finding extra-terrestrial life.

The ‘Breakthrough Initiative’ is a 10-year project that will point the Parkes and Green Bank Telescopes in the United States towards the millions of stars and 100 galaxies surrounding Earth, listening out for anomalies and signals that could reveal the presence of extraterrestrial technologies.

The $100 million project has been lauded as the most comprehensive and ambitious attempt yet by humanity to find out if we’re alone in the universe. The digi-tons of data generated by the project will also be made publicly available, allowing anyone – from hobby scientists to conspiracy theory crackpots – to analyse the data and try to answer one of humanity’s biggest questions.


4. Learning To Translate Alien Languages




With all the space-snooping we’re doing from Earth, surely it makes sense that ET life – should it exist – is trying to listen out for us as well, right? SETI astronomer Dr John Elliott seems to think so, which is why he’s developing an algorithm that he believes will be able to translate extraterrestrial messages beaming across space.

Elliott is working on the premise that all communication has some kind of structure. His algorithm would work out whether signals that reach Earth’s observatories are language-like or non-language-like; if they are, the algorithm would look for patterns and key communicative components in the signals to unravel them, and eventually translate them into human.


3. Sending Pictures Of Naked People Into Space




Before the golden vinyl record, humanity packed another cryptic message into the cosmos, aboard the Pioneer 10 and Pioneer 11 in 1972-73. This time it was the Pioneer Plaque, a picture message depicting two naked people and a map pointing the aliens right to Earth.

Looking at this image, it’s little wonder the aliens didn’t get back to us. Just look at it – to send an interstellar invitation with a naked man waving welcomingly is making a massive assumption about the aliens’ sexuality. The other possibility is that these nude pics might give the impression that Earth is some kind of sexually liberated paradise fully of young and beautiful nudists. If the aliens do get the message (in an estimated 25,000 years), then they’ll be pretty pissed to find that most of us are fully-clothed, and not as in-shape as the image suggests.

Since this plaque was sent, SECI researchers have agreed that picture messages may prove too difficult to decipher for ETs. That’s probably just as well, given that we sent out a map without knowing whether the ETs are hostile like most Hollywood films would have you believe, or friendly – like the Coneheads.


2. Large Hadron Collider




A lot of otherworldly and terrifying possibilities have been attributed to CERN’s colossal atom smasher. Some say it can destroy our universe, others say it is an attempt to open a portal to an Ancient Grecian-style underworld. But, more credibly, plenty of scientists are suggesting that the Hadron Collider can potentially open portals to other dimensions.

There are plenty of scientific theories that point to extra dimensions, and one way to find them would be to detect mini black holes in our own dimension. The only thing on Earth capable of harnessing enough energy to detect these mini black holes is the LHC.

The LHC hasn’t yet detected any mini black holes, but scientists believe that this could be a result of the LHC’s energy levels not being high enough, rather than them not existing. If we do manage to prove the existence of alternative dimensions, then that opens up a whole new universe of possibilities for detecting alien life.


1. The Theremin




The theremin is one of the earliest examples of a musical instrument, invented in the 1920s by Leon Theremin. It’s controlled using a couple of antennae, which detect the position of the musician’s hand using electrical signals, and are then amplified through to a speaker.

As it happens, the signals produced by the theremin can easily travel interstellar distances, which in 2001 led Russian scientist Alexander Zaitsev to propose that humanity composes a Theramin-based concert, which we could then broadcast out to neighbouring stars.

Zaitsev’s initial requests were rejected on the grounds that broadcasting humanity’s presence could put it at the mercy of more advanced extra-terrestrial civilisations. Eventually he got his way however, and a trio of musicians composed seven Russian folk songs on the theremin. The songs were sent to the nearest stars via the Yevpatoria RT-70 telescope in 2001, and are expected to reach six neighbouring stars between the years 2047 and 2070.

A Place To Discuss and Learn About UFOs and Extraterrestrials, The Jesse A. Marcel Library,

Montana City, MT Every Tuesday the Jesse Marcel Library is the gathering place for people to meet and talk about sightings, theories, and check out literature on strange things being seen in skies across the globe.

"This phenomenon that we call the UFO phenomena is compelling. There is a lot of good evidence that supports the claim that this is a reality. That there is a non-human intelligence that is interacting with this world." Said Dr. Richard O'Conner

Dr. Richard O'Connor is the library's operator who opened the building after becoming friends with one of the more famous people in UFO culture Dr. Jesse Marcel Junior while working with him at St.Peters hospital in Helena.

Dr. Marcel's father army major Jesse Marcel senior allegedly discovered and showed to his family a crashed alien craft outside of Roswell New Mexico in 1947. An event now cemented in UFO history and American culture.

One of the library's regular’s Dr. Joan Bird said places like this help to foster an accepted attitude of education on the subject.


"It's a wonderful safe, welcoming space for people interested in the subject to come and learn." Said Joan Bird

Dr. Bird, author of "Montana UFO's" continued saying that lifting the taboo on the subject is vital to further understanding something that hasn’t been fully explained for over sixty years.

"A lot of people have been researching and thinking about it for a long time and there is still so much to learn, but one thing we're pretty clear about is a lot of this information is being kept from the public. Because of that and this policy of ridicule associated with the subject since 53', 1953 if not earlier. A lot of people have dismissed it out of hand."

That is the purpose of the library. To offer a place where the interested can come and share ideas, literature and resources to further understand something many believe we as a country have been kept in the dark about.

"So I think there is a lot of very good reason to embrace this subject. Learn all you can about it. Start talking to your friends and family about it. Let your senators, representatives know that you think this is a serious subject that deserves the attention of the U.S. Congress. I think it's that important."

UFO Investigator Explains What He Thinks Is Being Seen Around The World - News Report

UFO Investigator William Puckett
Helena, MT Mysterious lights in the sky, unidentified flying objects, UFO's. 

Sightings of things that can't be explained have been reported all over the world leaving many of us wondering what is going on.

Luckily I didn't have to look far to find an authority on the subject. Helena's William Puckett holds a master's degree in atmospheric science. Has worked for the the National Weather Service, EPA and History and Science Channels.

In 2003 he began UFO Northwest and has received about 10,000 reports of strange sightings from witnesses across the globe.

I could be wrong folks, but the 2 objects travelling together are not a normal, typical formation. Speed is similar to normal satellites, but otherwise, just a 'little weird' - I have recorded, uploaded twin & triplet satellites - Not the same. Who knows?

First Human To Leave Our Solar System Has Arrived At His Destination - Clyde Tombaugh


Think about it...amazing changes in a short time....Clyde Tombaugh, born in 1906, discovers Pluto in 1930. Now, in 2015, only 85 years later, a NASA spacecraft flies to Pluto. A 9 year journey into the void, to photograph that distant planet, with Mr Tombaugh's ashes on board! His will be the first human remains to leave our solar system, a well-deserved honor. I'm glad he got to visit Pluto, and glad he lived happily in Mesilla Park, New Mexico for so many years.

Interstellar Travel Is Common Place In the Universe

3 Ways Intelligent Extraterrestrials Could Traverse The Universe In Seconds


“There is another way, whether it’s wormholes, or warping space, there’s got to be a way to generate energy so that you can pull it out of the vacuum, and the fact that they’re [extraterrestrials] here shows us that they found a way.”  – Jack Kasher, Ph.D, Professor Emeritus of Physics, University of Nebraska.



Thanks to the official disclosure of Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs) by dozens of countries which details encounters with UFOs, more questions are being asked. It seems logical, how are people supposed to respond to the fact that these objects are commonly tracked on radar by military agencies, visually confirmed by the pilots sent out to investigate them, and perform maneuvers that defy our current understanding of physics?

It wasn’t too long ago that the existence of ‘UFOs’ was considered nonsense, but now that their existence again, has been ‘officially’ verified in the ‘mainstream,’ the question is now shifting to, “What are they?” As you can see from the quote above, Dr. Jack Kasher believes ‘they’ are extraterrestrial craft, and he is joined by hundreds of other scientists, academicians, high ranking military people, and politicians who share the same opinion.

“There is abundant evidence that we are being contacted, that civilizations have been monitoring us for a very long time.” – Dr. Brian O’Leary, Former NASA Astronaut and Princeton Physics Professor. See Dr. O'Leary deathbed confession click here.



Apart from wondering what and who exactly these beings are, people are also asking how they got here. Below are some possible explanations, but a civilization so advanced as to visit us probably has methods that we cannot yet comprehend.

THE ALCUBIERRE DRIVE

The idea behind the Alcubierre Drive is to basically place a craft within a space that is moving faster than the speed of light. Therefore the craft itself does not have to travel at the speed of light from its own type of propulsion system. It’s easier to understand if you think in terms of a flat escalator in an airport. The escalator moves faster than you are walking! In this case, the space encompassing the ship would be moving faster than the ship could fly, keeping all the matter of the ship intact. Therefore, we can move faster than light in a massless cloud of space-time.

The Alcubierre Drive is based on Einstein’s field equations, and it suggests that a spacecraft could achieve faster-than-light travel. Rather than exceed the speed of light alone in a craft, a spacecraft would leap long distances by contracting space in front of it and expanding space behind it. This would result in faster than light travel . Physicist Miguel Alcubierre was the first (that we know of) to identify this possibility. He described it as remaining still on a flat piece of space-time inside a warp bubble that was made to move at “superluminal” (faster than light) velocity. We must not forget that space-time can be warped and distorted, it can be moved. But what about moving sections of space-time which are created by expanding space-time behind the ship, and by contracting space-time in front of the ship?

A similar concept was also recently illustrated by Mathematician James Hill and Barry Cox at the University of Adelaide. They published a paper in the journal proceedings of the Royal Society A: Mathematical and Physical Sciences (source).

“By creating a ‘warp bubble’ that expands space on one side of a spaceship and contracts it on the other, the spaceship will be pushed away from the Earth and pulled towards a distant star by space-time itself.” – Dr. Alcubierre (source)
Quantum Entanglement: All Points In Space Are Connected

You can view a visual demonstration/basic explanation of quantum entanglement here. Einstein himself could not wrap his head around it and referred to it as “spooky action at a distance.” The phenomenon was recently confirmed by the Griffith University’s Centre for Quantum Dynamics, you can read more about that story here.

Quantum entanglement suggests that space is just the construct that gives the illusion of seperation. As demonstrated in the vido linked above, if you take two particles and put one of them on the opposite side of the universe, the moment you do something to one of them the same reaction occurs instantaneously in the other one. This suggests that either the pieces of matter are “entangled” or connected, or that information is travelling much faster than the speed of light.

So, if all points in space are connected, perhaps this could provide some insight into travelling to what we perceive to be the far reaches of the universe.

Ben Rich, the second director of Lockheed Skunkwork’s from 1975-1991, also known as the Father of Stealth, made several shocking open statements about the reality of UFOs and extraterrestrials and how they are getting here.

“We already have the means to travel among the stars, but these technologies are locked up in black projects, and it would take an act of God to ever get them out to benefit humanity. Anything you can imagine, we already know how to do it. There are two types of UFOs, ones that we build and ones that ‘they’ build.”

When Rich was asked how UFO propulsion worked, he said, “Let me ask you. How does ESP work?” The questioner responded with, “All points in time and space are connected?” Rich then said, “That’s how it works!”

Another hard hitting statement related to this topic:

“It is ironic that the U.S. would begin a devastating war, allegedly in search of weapons of mass destruction when the most worrisome developments in this field are occurring in your own backyard. It is ironic that the U.S. should be fighting monstrously expensive wars allegedly to bring democracy to those countries, when it itself can no longer claim to be called a democracy when trillions, and I mean thousands of billions of dollars have been spent on projects which both congress and the commander in chief know nothing about.” (source) – Former Canadian Defense Minister Paul Hellyer
Wormholes

Wormholes are passages through space-time that would allow one to create ‘shortcuts’ through space in order to travel long distances. They are predicted by the general Theory of Relativity, and as of now still lie within the realm of theoretical physics. In 1935, Einstein referred to these as “bridges” through space-time, again, connecting two different points in space-time to create a shortcut. It’s also important to mention that the existence of these wormholes has been mathematically predicted, but are still considered theoretical.

A paper that was recently published in the Annals of physics offers mathematical evidence that a massive black hole in our galaxy is actually a wormhole. If this is true, it should be possible for humans to navigate it.

“Our result is very important because it confirms the possible existence of wormholes in most of the spiral galaxies.” (source)

If we are being visited, perhaps wormholes are one of many possible means by which it’s happening.

It’s important to note that the human race is still in its adolescence, perhaps there are new discoveries to be made for “those who can remove some of truth’s protective layers.” – Niel Armstrong (source)

Craft A Winning Message For Aliens And Win $1,000,000.00

LONDON: Yuri Milner, the Russian billionaire who is funding the USD 100 million search for aliens, is offering USD 1 million prize money to craft the best message to send to an extraterrestrial civilisation.

Frank Drake, an astronomer who has been at the centre of searches for extraterrestrial intelligence since the 1960s, said that the first thing the judges would do was eliminate any entries written in human languages.

"Some people have foolishly composed messages in English. Big mistake," Mr Drake said.

Mr Drake has been involved in previous efforts to devise interplanetary messages, including the plaque on the Pioneer and Voyager space probes, which are now the farthest human objects from Earth, 'The Times' reported.

Given that the message may take thousands of years to reach intelligent life, it should include as much information as possible for the creatures receiving it.

"Don't just send a message like, 'We want to be your friends'. The ETs will just get disappointed and mad at this," Mr Drake said.

Mr Drake said the key was to think about what we have in common with other beings.

"There are many common reference points. Chemistry, for instance. Through the spectral lines of elements, which are the characteristic fingerprints they leave on the light spectrum, we can give scale - hydrogen's spectral line could be a common unit of length," Mr Drake said.

Pulsars would also be a common reference point. The lighthouses of the universe, these neutron stars emit characteristic bursts of radiation. They can be used to describe a time interval, he said.

The USD 100-million Breakthrough Initiatives programme was launched by eminent British physicist Stephen Hawking at the Royal Society in London last week.

Funded by Ms Milner, the programme has been characterised as the "biggest scientific search ever undertaken for signs of intelligent life beyond Earth."

Delta or Triangle Shape UFO Photographed Over Pennsylvania



NUFORC Report
Occurred : 7/16/2015 00:00 (Entered as : 07/16/15 0:00)
Reported: 7/16/2015 10:57:49 AM 10:57
Posted: 7/17/2015
Location: Morrisville, PA
Shape: Triangle
Duration:6 minutes
Huge dark object high in the clouds hovering over me.

I was in my car at work waiting for my relief to arrive so that I could leave. My shift is over at midnight. The sky was completley covered in clouds, but I noticed a small spiral of clouds to left. Nothing major, it was more of a swirl than spiral.

I thought, maybe HAARP? I took my camera out, put it on the night setting, got out of my car and took two pictures. I checked the preview to make sure the camera captured it because it was so dark and there's barely any lights in the area.

I started looking around the sky and was shocked to see a huge dark object in the clouds, high above my car. The spiral was to the left of my car and the shape was pointing in that direction and directly above me. I kept thinking maybe it's just a break in the clouds and all I'm seeing is the night sky. But the fact that it had visible straight lines and what appeared to be, a sharp point, made me want to take several more pictures. It was not moving at all. There was absolutely no sound or lights.

I don't know how low the clouds were but the object seemed huge. I don't know anything about cloud altitude, so it's hard to make an accurate guess of how high or big it was.

I want to say the width appeared to be as wide as maybe 5 passenger jets side by side.

I observed it for about 6 minutes until it seemed to slowly disappear and clouds filled in the area. Something was there, that I know.


((NUFORC Note: Witness provides multiple photos, which indicate a swirl in the clouds, and appears to be a subdued dark area in the cloud cover. We do not know what the object is. PD))

A Lunar Village On The Dark Side Of The Moon

ESA Wants To Build 'Village' On Dark Side Of The Moon

The new Director General of the European Space Agency (ESA) envisions the building of a lunar village at the far side of the moon.

Quite futuristic for space exploration, but that is exactly why it is called the future.

"A moon village shouldn't just mean some houses, a church and a town hall," said Professor Johann-Dietrich Woerner in his new job for a week. To Woerner, the futuristic moon village calls for the world to bring together partners contributing to the community supported by robotic and astronaut missions, as well as support communication satellites.

The former Chair of the German space agency believes that going back to the moon and building a village on its far side will further help in a deeper exploration of the solar system.

Woerner, who now looks after Europe's new observation, navigation, weather and communication satellites, the International Space Station (ISS), missions to Mercury, Mars and Jupiter and a sleepy lander on a comet shaped like a duck, notes how interesting the lunar village could be.

"The Americans are looking to go to Mars very soon - and I don't see how we can do that - before going to Mars we should test what we could do on Mars on the Moon," added Woerner.

He explained that the giant 3D printer that NASA plans to use on a base in Mars could be better tried out first on the moon. The challenges of learning to live in an alien world could be made easier, especially in an emergency and when the extraterrestrial community is just four days away.

Meanwhile, the US wants to start sending missions to cis-lunar space. It is building the Orion deep spacecraft, along with the heavy lift Space Launch System to get astronauts most of the way to the moon. Europe proposes that there could be a place to live on the moon for these astronauts. NASA is still vague on where exactly to deploy the Orion; however, the US spacecraft and Europe's lunar village proposal could bring about international partnership in an exploration that Woernoer hopes could extend to the deeper end of the solar system.

According to Woerner, what makes it interesting is that we could have telescopes that look deep into the universe. Lunar science can be done on the moon, and the international aspect is special.

"We like to discover, to pioneer - this is humankind and this is what brings us into the future," said the new Director General who is in charge of an annual budget of € 4.4 billion.

Black Triangle UFO Sighting Tripled Since 2000 in Central New York

History of Black Triangle UFOs Over Central New York

Who knew that a simple winter’s night snowmobile ride would result in the sighting of a black triangle UFO?
Triangular-shaped UFOs have been in the media over the past 20 years or so. Numerous television shows have reported cases from different parts of the U.S. and western Europe. These craft are usually about the size of a football field, being about two stories thick. They typically are reported as having three major glowing orbs on the underside. They are usually a non-reflective black in color, but they’ve also been reported as glowing in orange or yellow. The strangest element is that most reports say that they are unnervingly silent.
The CNY region is not without its reports of these triangle-shaped crafts. Among the earliest known upstate reports of a black triangle UFO was in January of 1979 in Herkimer, NY.  One winter’s night, a snowmobiler who lived in the country was going to visit a friend five miles away. He stated that suddenly it became quiet. He couldn’t hear his sled’s engine and the snowmobile’s light went out. He looked up and could make out the outline of a huge black triangle blocking out the stars. It had no lights and was silent. He said it took about two minutes for it to pass over head. It was perhaps 100 feet off the ground and when it passed under the high tension wires, arcs began jumping from the power lines to the top of the craft. He watched it move away over a hill and then out of sight. When he got home, nobody believed him.
There was also a sighting a few years later in October of 1982 in Owasco, NY near Owasco Lake. In October 2010, a black triangle UFO was reported in Skaneateles that was observed by a number of people at a football game. In December 2011, near Sylvan Beach, NY, a family observed two of these crafts. Not to be left out, residents in the city of Syracuse observed several of these triangular crafts. One was seen over Hiawatha Lake moving northwest in June of 2012 in the early hours of the day. Notably, two years ago a small cluster of sightings of black triangle UFOs  happened in May 2013 in the regional New York City area.
The most recent report was logged in Earlville, NY on July 15, 2013. A young woman was called outside by her excited boyfriend. She reported that he pointed up in the sky and some distance from them was a huge orange triangle. They watched it for a few minutes as it slowly moved away and disappeared.
A curious aspect regarding these black triangles is the frequency of their sightings. When I examined the sighting data for the 20 years between 1979 through 2000, there were a total of 34 sighting reports for the entire state of New York. Yet from 2001 to 2015, the number of Black Triangle sightings has more than tripled.

Kecksberg Celebrates 50th Anniversary Of Mass UFO Sighting and Crash - News Report

Kecksberg Celebrates 50th Anniversary Of Mass UFO Sighting and Crash


 

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Kecksberg, Pa. is a quaint little town in Westmoreland County, known for one thing – something – that crashed there 50 years ago.

At least that was the story. It was back in 1965 when the sky above Westmoreland County was ripped open by a flash of light screaming through the darkness. Something smashed into the woods outside of Kecksburg.

“I was coming down over the hill when it came over the radio that something crashed in Kecksburg,” said eyewitness Bill Weaver.

Weaver was one of hundreds pouring into the tiny town the night the thing hit the ground. It didn’t take long for Bill to find out just where the object had landed.

“You could see where something moved through there and knocked down trees and brush,” he said. “There was a blue light emanating, whatever this object was.”

Also in the area that night was Ronnie Struble and his new bride.

“We seen this orange streak in the sky,” said Struble. “Being young and inquisitive, me and the wife said ‘We gotta go see what’s going on out there.’”

They soon found themselves stopped along Meteor Road looking in the woods and seeing lots of uniforms.

“We were not permitted to go by the blockade, but the fact is there was military in that hollow,” Struble said.

“What made the story very interesting is that when information came out, even Bill Burns came on KDKA saying the military was heading to the Kecksburg area,” said UFO researcher Stan Gordon.

The same military personnel who all who allegedly removed the glowing acorn-shaped object, ushering it away under tarps on a flatbed truck – to who knows where.

“There are still many mysteries regarding what was the object that fell in 1965,” said Gordon.

What is not a mystery is that the object has been very good for Kecksburg’s economy – especially the volunteer fire company. They host the yearly UFO festival, which runs this Friday to Sunday. And there’s even a UFO-themed gift shop.

Some say what happened in Kecksburg was space junk or a meteor, or nothing at all.

But if you ask an eyewitness, they’ll tell you 50 years haven’t blurred the memories of that night.

“There was something, definitely something sitting down in that hollow putting off the blue light,” said Struble.

Billionaire Invest $100 Million In Search For Intelligent Extraterrestrial Life

One Large Step Closer To Finding ET

The tantalizing possibility of finding intelligent life beyond Earth got a little closer on Monday, when billionaire technology investor Yuri Milner announced he was investing $100 million of his personal fortune into a scientific search that would be unprecedented in its scale and scope.

Stephen Hawking joined Milner on stage at the Royal Society in London to announce the Breakthrough Initiative, a 10-year scientific study utilizing two of the world’s most powerful telescopes, along with an international competition to explore the creation of digital messages that could represent humanity, with $1 million prize money.

The far larger, exploratory component of the program, on which most of Milner’s $100 million will be spent, is called Breakthrough Listen and will focus on exploring the universe’s entire electromagnetic spectrum.

Previous searches have covered just 2% of those frequencies, but the new program will cover them in their entirety, according to one of Breakthrough Listen’s lead scientists Frank Drake. “There’s a certain part of the spectrum where universe is darkest and quietest, and 2% has been searched,” he told FORBES. “The new search is 100% of the promising radio spectrum, the low-noise radio spectrum which is one to 10 gigahertz.”

Hawking spoke briefly on stage about why it was worth carrying out the program. ”We believe that life arose spontaneously on Earth, so in an infinite universe there must be other occurrences of life,” he said from the launch event’s oak-panelled room at the Royal Society, London. “It’s time to commit to finding the answer to search for life beyond Earth.”

Milner’s donation represents the biggest monetary grant ever given to the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence, often abbreviated to “SETI,” since Microsoft billionaire Paul Allen’s $30 million investment in the Allen Telescope Array in 2009. (The University of Berkeley shut down the array in 2011 due to a lack of continued funding.) Milner’s $100 million grant will be distributed over a 10-year period.
Scientist using billionaire Yuri Milner's $100 million grant will get much need access to two of the  world's most powerful telescopes including Parkes Observatory in Australia to search for ET over the next decade.
 The globally renowned SETI research program at Berkeley University is more accustomed to getting grants in the thousands of dollars, such as the three-year $810,000 grant from the John Templeton Foundation in 2013 or a $600,000 grant from NASA in 2012. The grant from Milner essentially represents a 20-fold annual funding increase for the entire field.

The program will cover 10 times more of the sky than previous programs, and spark an unprecedented flood of new data. When use of the telescopes kicks off in January, one day of data collection will be equivalent to a year’s worth of previous global research by SETI scientists, according to Andrew Siemion, a director at the University of Berkeley’s SETI research centre, who will act as a lead investigator with Milner’s project.

The radio spectrum is about 10 gigahertz wide, and till now SETI research has only been able to look at 2o or 50 megahertz at a time.

“We’ve hunted and pecked,” says Siemion. “If you take into account hours and signal types this will be 50 to 100 times more powerful than everything we’ve done in the past.”

The program will survey 1 million of the closest stars to Earth, scan the center of the galaxy and listen for messages from the 100 closest galaxies. The researchers claim that if a civilization based around one of the 1,000 nearest stars sends out a transmission with the power of a common aircraft radar, the Breakthrough Listen telescopes could detect it.

Much of Milner’s investment will go towards gaining access to two of the world’s most powerful telescopes, the Green Bank Telescope in West Virginia and the Parkes Telescope in Australia, giving a rare boost to the time they spend on SETI research.

Till today, researchers like Berkeley’s Siemion had been able to get no more than 36 hours with each telescope, per year, due to the greater demands of other scientific projects. Now under the new program they’ll get “thousands of hours per year” with them, helped in part by an increase in funding pressure for the foundations that run the telescopes, Milner says.

Milner, who became a billionaire by coordinating a string of successful investments in Silicon Valley powerhouses like Facebook, Groupon and Zynga and who has already led $160 million in funding for the Breakthrough Prize in science, says he started thinking about a project to look for extraterrestrial life two years ago. His team began reaching out out to telescope facilities earlier this year.

Part of the impetus comes from his own personal background as a former physicist, as well as from being named after Yuri Gegarin, the first human to journey into space in 1961, the year Milner was born. “This was the first message to me, sent by my parents,” Milner told FORBES. “My mother wanted me to be inspired by what he did.”

The program is taking an uncharacteristically open approach to processing the wealth of data that the scientific team expects to collect. “We’re bringing some Silicon Valley philosophy into this,” says Milner. “All the data we accumulate will be open to the public, and we’ll make it available both for professionals and amateurs and hackers.”

Breakthrough Listen will be plugging into the SETI@home program, coordinated by Berkeley University. This is a distributed computing platform made up of 9 million volunteers around the world who have donated the processing power of their computers to search for signs of life.

With Hawking as advisor, a handful of senior scientists from around the world are leading the project, including Cambridge astrophysicist Martin Rees and Frank Drake, a pioneer in the field of SETI research who now chairs the Mountain View, Cali.-based SETI institute.

Even with the massive funding, dramatically more time with telescopes and faster computing power, scientists involved with the project conceded that there was no guarantee they would find that crucial signal over the next decade.

“It’s a huge gamble, but the payoff would be so colossal in recognizing there’s life out there that this investment is hugely worthwhile,” said Rees. “Even if the chance of success is small.”

The $1 million project to design a message to blast into the cosmos also has no obvious payoff: there are no plans to actually send a message, but rather gain something from the exercise of putting a message together. This appears to be partly out of caution for what could happen if such a message were to fall into the wrong hands.

Hawking, for one, is against contacting extraterrestrial intelligence. ”We don’t know much about aliens but we know about humans,” he said. “If you look at history, conflicts between unmanned and less intelligence organisms have often been disastrous from their point of view. Encounters between civilizations with less-advanced technology have gone badly for the less-advanced. A civilization reading one of our messages could be billions of years ahead. If so they will be vastly more powerful and may not see us as any more valuable that we see bacteria.”

Astrophysicist Martin Rees, whose painted portrait adorned the walls at the Royal Society where the Breakthrough Initiative was launched, said he strongly disagreed with Hawking. “I suspect if aliens know we exist, they know we’re here already,” he said. “I don’t think we should imagine any intelligence is like ours at all.”

The question of what to do if we were to make contact with intelligent life raises a host of philosophical and ethical questions. Ann Druyan who chose musical selections for the Voyager probe missions and was married to the late Carl Sagan, is leading the search for messages that could potentially be beamed into space in the hope of making contact.

Multiple Witness Film Well Lit and Colorful UFO Filmed Over Tucson Arizona

Posters Comments
This video was made with a Luna Optics color night vision camera LN-DM50-HRSD. It is 5X but can go to 20X. This was approx. at 9:00 on July 4th, 2015 at the Sabino Canyon parking lot situated in the northeast edge of Tucson. I've always left the time stamp of my videos at its original 2011 so ignore that. The sky was completely overcast over the Catalina Mtns. The small dots you see on the screen are normal for night vision cameras and are not stars in the sky.

The very first couple of seconds shows some odd lights in the right of the frame. Those are the radio towers on the mountain out of focus thus making them look odd.



Posters Comments Continued
There were a few cars coming and going out of the parking lot and they account for some of the light shifts. Unfortunately I zoomed in too much and it destroyed the clarity of the video but it still captures the amazing event that we witnessed.

There are a couple of times I adjust the focus and it makes the 3 lights of the UFO seem to morph but that is only, again, me focusing. The main 3 lights stayed distinct in the sky and only look like they become one light and then back to 3 because of my tinkering.

For a video of the same event from the same location by my friend, Gene, made with a Pulsar night vision camera, see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kdixY...

Multiple Witnesses See UFO Over Victoria, Australia

UFO Over Skies of Victoria, Australia
Gets Residents Buzzing


Tony Hancock has captured images of the mysterious phenomenon, which has Melburnians [Australia] talking.

While spotlights were roving the skies from Fed Square last night, we’re pretty sure they aren’t responsible for these strange pictures.





Tony Hancock snapped the lights over the Mornington Peninsula.

“Not sure what to make of this but last night over Crib Point and Mornington I seen weird stuff in (the) sky,” he said.

Have You Heard The One About A Lobsterman and The UFO - If You Haven't You Should

ROCKLAND — Life is stranger than fiction and local author Neal Parker, who published The Lobsterman and The UFO in 2007 will probably see a boost in book sales after we covered Rockland lobsterman’s strange encounter with a triangle of mysterious lights on July 14. 
Ty Pendleton, 23, lives close to the Rockland ferry terminal. He was just getting home from work when he spotted a formation of lights in the sky moving in an easterly direction. “It might have been 9:00, 9:15. I was walking up to my doorstep when those bright lights caught my attention. So, I took out my phone really quick, but it only had about five percent battery life so I captured a photo and about 20 seconds of video. As I’m recording it I’m thinking, wow this is not an airplane, it’s got no sound. I can see right through it. It’s not like a stealth bomber. I even called local airport at Owls Head and Bangor asked if they had any record of anything flying in that formation and they said they didn’t.”
His sister posted the video to her YouTube account, which went viral. Soon after, Portland news station WCSH6 interviewed Pendleton and reposted the video, before someone uploaded the video to Reddit.
“From there it’s exploded,” he said. “I’ve been getting all sorts of messages left and right from people on my Facebook account,” he said. “I was up to 1 in the morning answering people’s messages. Some ask what I really think it is or tell me what they think it is.”
Asked what he now thinks it is, Pendleton takes a laconic view of the situation.
“I honestly don’t know, because I don’t even pay attention to that kind of stuff,” he said. “That’s why they call it an unidentified flying object. My sister and brother in law are kind of into it though and they found an article of a man in Orrington who had a sighting exactly what I saw, only he didn’t have a camera to record it at the time, so he drew a picture.”
According to Mutual UFO Network (MUFON), the Orrington sighting was a month prior in June and was reposted on Strange Maine, a Maine blog that covers mysterious phenomena.
UFO enthusiasts call this particular formation aBlack Triangle” U.F.O. configuration. Other commenters to the story have suggested it’s a a triple satellite formation used by the Navy.
As of yet, he’s only gotten messages from UFO enthusiasts but has not heard from anyone in the government or military.
“A couple of UFO fan pages have shared my video as well. It’s everywhere.”

Tony Pendleton
Pendleton added that now that the initial interest of this video has passed, he would prefer to maintain his privacy and not have to answer more Facebook queries.
Critics of the sighting have posted on Facebook that they think it’s a trick of the camera capturing streetlights.
To that, Pendleton answered: “As you can see in my video, those three lights were moving in an east direction. There’s one light yes, a fourth tiny light moving around and that was a reflection from my camera, but the other three lights in the video, are clearly separate.”
Scott Mitchell, the director of UMaine’s Astronomy Center, said in the WCSH6 article that he believed the lights were a weather phenomenon to which Pendleton responded: “I totally disagree with that. He didn’t have a simple explanation for it either.
“I don’t think it’s alien related, but I don’t know what it was.It was definitely a flying object, but it’s a mystery,” said Pendleton
Pendleton said he thinks it’s strange that he is the only person in Rockland who saw the lights and recorded them. He thought more people would have seen it as well.
“I always like to look up at the sky,” he said. “I think I’ll be looking up a lot more from now on.”
However, before he leaves the house, he’ll be making sure his phone is fully charged.

S4 has been found! SEEING IS BELIEVING. Using Google Earth, I was able to locate 10 hangars built into the side of the Papoose Mountains. Lazar was right! The hangars are next to the dry lakebed.

Silent Glowing UFO Filmed Over Coventry, UK

UFO Over Coventry



A mysterious glowing orb was seen darting in the sky above Coventry before dropping out of sight.

Marie Pitter-Dewey spotted the ball-shaped object over University Hospital in Walsgrave on Sunday night.

She said the UFO didn’t make a sound, changed colour and could come to a dead stop in mid-air.

And even though the 26-year-old student, from Wyken, admits to being a sceptic, her close encounter has left her shaken up.

“I was a bit shocked, I thought it was an airplane,” said Marie. “It looked like it could move very quickly whatever it was.




“It was faster than a helicopter and then it could just stop in the sky, to a dead stop.

“It was blue, and like a white colour, green, and then I think it went like a pinky colour as well.

“It was slowly changing colour in a calm kind of manner.”

Author Looking For Answers On Mysterious UFO Landing in Canada

Brantford author wants answers


Author Bob Mitchell looking for answers

Joe Borda believed a UFO landed on his Mount Pleasant tobacco farm in 1975 until the day he died. (The County of Brant  is a municipality in the Canadian province of Ontario.)

The incident went almost completely undocumented until earlier this year when freelance journalist, author and media consultant Bob Mitchell wrote and self published Incident at Pleasant Ridge-A Canadian UFO mystery.

He held a book signing at the Best Western Brant Park Inn and Suites Saturday to promote that and Intrusion Alien Encounters.

“I was at the (Alien Cosmic Expo) and I didn't have this book and people were asking for it, so I wanted to give people an opportunity to see it,” Mitchell said.

One of Canada's former top UFOlogists, Henry McKay tried to find information on the incident, but couldn't.

“It's very strange, there is almost no information available. What is, is in the book. Almost everyone who investigated or had anything to do with it is dead or hasn't come forward,” he said.

Mitchell said that faithful night on Borda's farm in something left a circular burn in the field which bent the crop and left a purple liquid on the ground.

“Whether is was a UFO or an experimental aircraft I don't know. I am not 100 per cent convinced what landed was extra terrestrial, but something landed,” Mitchell said.

Although Borda reported hearing voices when the incident happened telling him not to pay attention to what was happening and to walk away.

“That's a common theme among people who experience encounters,” he said.

Mitchell said he is always looking for more information about what happened at the farm and has had some leads. Some people even say Mrs. Borda is still alive, but Mitchell hasn't found her.

“Not for lack of looking,” he said.

Georgia Military Witnesses See Metallic Disc Shaped UFO Cross Highway - UFO Renderings

Wadley, Georgia, Monday, June 29th, 2015, At approximately 1:30 am (EDT)—Enroute from their home in Georgia to their new assignment location in Colorado Springs, Colorado, a husband and wife report witnessing a bizarre looking, disc-shaped, metallic-appearing craft cross the highway in front of their vehicle. The husband, who has 15 years of service in the military, estimated that the object to have been perhaps as long as 250 meters in length. He also reported that it was “spewing” flames out the trailing edge of the disc. The object appeared to accelerate, ascend, and then it quickly disappeared in nearby clouds. The witnesses provided the rendering seen below.



Witness Report (NUFORC)

Large metallic object with fluid oil slick body spurting sparks from the rear flies dirctly over our truck on HWY 1 in Wadley GA.

On 28 June, 2015, at about 5pm my family and I departed from Richmond Hill, GA, on our long road trip to Colorado Springs, CO, where I will be stationed as an active duty Army senior NCO.

Prior to leaving I bought a brand new GPS navigation unit and we tested it out in town prior to our trip knowing it worked well. Our navigation unit directed us toward Augusta, GA. Our kids fell asleep at about 9pm.

At precisely 01:28am 29 June 2015 on HWY 1 south heading north approximately 7-8 miles south of a gas station at 10525 HWY 1 south, Wadley, GA, 30477. Our radio began to get real static so I turned it down when my wife noticed a very large object flying left to right coming toward us. I looked up to the left and hit my brakes stopping our truck to the side of the road. The object appeared to be approximately 250 meters in length 60 meters height and was approximately flying 200 feet in altitude and was spurting sparks from the rear of the object. The sparks were jetting out about 50-80 meters in a pattern of controlling thrust.

My wife and I had a very good look at the object closer than anyone else on that highway considering there was no vehicles in sight. The object had a dim glow of a orange around it, vague but noticeable. The objects exterior was metallic but appeared to look like oil on water effect to it and appeared to be fluid like movement over the metallic body of the object.

My wife and I watched in disbelief in what we were witnessing as it moved left to right the object decreased in altitude as it was over the highway then began to increase in altitude after it crossed the highway right overhead of us. We watched as it increased in altitude and penetrated some clouds and accelerated out of sight through the cloud cover quickly.

I got back on the road and processed down the highway way feeling a bit shook up with a mild headache trying debunk what it might have been. Too fast for a blimp, too slow for airplanes, no sound but mild humming, too big to be any aircraft or helicopter, and so on.

About 4-5 miles further up the road a semi truck had stopped on the side of the road on the southbound lanes and a car with a guy getting back in their car as they saw what we saw. I stopped at the first gas station on the right and told the guy there what we saw and bought a few things to proceed on our road trip. An hour later our navigation system malfunctioned telling us we were at our final destination in the middle of nowhere at a church. My wife mentioned that we have been driving 9 hours which steamed to me to be a long time for the amount distance we cover. I stopped and powered it down and reset it to Colorado Springs. We got back on track and we stopped to sleep in north Atlanta area just after 6am. My stomach was upset and I did not sleep well nor did my wife.

We got up late afternoon and got back on the road. 6 hours after being on the road my trucks transmission began acting up and we had stopped. I messed around with changing my truck's transmission settings through all the functions for about 15 minutes and it eventually corrected itself. I have had on an off headaches and upset stomach since witnessing this object. My truck has been acting odd as well, check engine oil level, check engine, and a large chip in the windshield not noticed before.

I have receipts and time lines. I am capable of drawing and painting a visual representation of what we saw but my art supplies are packed away until we find a home to buy so I’m limited as to what I can do for the time being. The image of that object is vivid in my mind to good detail so I will have produce a visual reference at a later time.

Please keep in mind I am active duty military. I’m speaking of this only because I have not yet been told not to and forced to sign non disclosure orders as I have been forced to in the past. My MOS has presented me with more than a few of incidents in similar situations. I have always had been approached and forced to sign the nondisclosure orders. If you need anything else someone needs to get here and talk to me soon.

Thanks!

((NUFORC Note: We spoke via telephone with the witness, and he sounded to us to be quite objective and serious-minded.
