Seeing meaning in the stars is a vital part of the scientific story. BY MICHAEL BROOKS Afew years ago, I went to an astrologer as research for a radio show exploring strange beliefs. Vishal knew only my name, and date and place of birth, and didn’t tell me anything terribly profound until I asked him about the car I had just bought. He tapped something into his laptop. I waited. “I see two cars in your future,” he said. I laughed. “Does that mean I’ve bought a dud?” “I can’t tell you that,” he said. A fortnight later, a mechanic … Continue reading Why Astrology Matters
Are we part of a dying reality or a blip in eternity? The value of the Hubble Constant could tell us which terror awaits Corey S Powell is a science editor and journalist. He has been editor at Discover, Scientific American and Aeon. He is the author of God in the Equation (2003), and co-authored Undeniable (2014), Unstoppable (2016) and Everything All at Once (2017) with Bill Nye, with whom he also makes the Science Rules! podcast. He lives in Brooklyn, New York. Edited by Pam Weintraub What determines our fate? To the Stoic Greek philosophers, fate is the external product of divine will, ‘the thread of your destiny’. To transcendentalists such … Continue reading Fate of the Universe
If there’s life beyond Earth, the genetic code might be our common bond. BY DANIEL OBERHAUS The primary difficulty of interstellar communication is finding common ground between ourselves and other intelligent entities about which we can know nothing with absolute certainty. This common ground would be the basis for a universal language that could be understood by any intelligence, whether in the Milky Way, Andromeda, or beyond the cosmic horizon. To the best of our knowledge, the laws of physics are the same throughout the universe, which suggests that the facts of science may serve as a basis for mutual … Continue reading Do We Share DNA with ET?
Scientists examined data from 20 years ago to reach a startling new conclusion. by PAUL RATNER Observations made by the SOHO spacecraft over 20 years ago lead to a new discovery. The Earth has a hydrogen envelope as part of its outer atmosphere called the geocorona. The geocorona stretches well past the Moon, reveals a study. We are more linked to the Moon than we’ve realized. It turns out that the outer part of the Earth’s atmosphere stretches considerably past the lunar orbit. In fact, it goes as far as twice the distance to the Moon. This discovery is a product … Continue reading The Moon is inside Earth's atmosphere, European researchers say
by: Mike Adams (Natural News) As part of my “Oblivion Agenda” lecture series, I described how non-Earth civilizations harvest entire stars to generate antimatter fuel that powers FTL (Faster Than Light) warp drives. FTL travel is necessary to traverse the galaxy, given the enormous distances involved (even at 1000 times the speed of light, it would take 120 years to travel from one end of our Milky Way galaxy to the other). Now, mainstream science news is writing about a bombshell discovery: Over 100 stars have vanished from the night sky in just the last 50 years. They’re literally gone. As I’ve explained … Continue reading Over 100 stars VANISH from the sky, providing yet more evidence of alien civilizations harvesting STARS to generate antimatter fuel that can power FTL drives
by Michael Snyder When the Russians take decisive action, it is usually for a reason. As you will see below, the Russians have suddenly decided that now is the time to create an organization that will be tasked with detecting, tracking and potentially destroying incoming asteroids. Are they doing this now because they have finally decided that this is a good idea, or has something gotten their attention? Of course they are not likely to publicly admit if they have come to the conclusion that a gigantic space rock is heading directly toward us. Just like the U.S. government, the … Continue reading What Do They Know? The U.S. And Russia Have Both Been Developing Plans To Deal With Incoming Asteroids
by Manuel Garcia Aguilar, The Mind Unleashed Waking Times By September of 2013, there were already more than 500,000 pieces of debris, or “space junk” orbiting Earth and that number is still increasing. The bits of junk travel at speeds up to 17,500 mph—fast enough for a relatively small piece of orbital debris to damage a satellite or a spacecraft. This is also potential danger to space vehicles, but especially to the International Space Station, space shuttles, and other spacecraft with humans aboard. “The greatest risk to space missions comes from non-trackable debris,” said Nicholas Johnson, NASA chief scientist for orbital debris. As a … Continue reading THE FIRST EVER MISSION TO REMOVE SPACE JUNK FROM ORBIT HAS JUST BEEN COMMISSIONED
