alien life

Eight mysterious repeating radio bursts have been detected coming from the far reaches of space.

Earlier this year, only a single repeating FSB (fast radio burst) had been discovered. The mysterious repeating radio burst had been detected from the far reaches on the universe and then lost. This week, scientists say they have discovered an astonishing eight new repeating radio signals. Seven of the repeating radio signals fired only once showed a downward drift in frequency but the eighth one fired a pattern of signals three different times. The signals were detected by the CHIME (Canadian Hydrogen Intensity Mapping Experiment) radio telescope. CHIME monitors a broad swath of the sky and unlike other radio telescopes, listens for lower range of frequencies. The results are analyzed by scientists and artificial intelligence algorithms. "It's a great way of developing the kinds of techniques that

The Vatican secret library – what mysteries lay hidden in the Holy See’s Vatican Secret Archive

In Vatican City, the walled enclave within the city or Rome, there is an archive containing more than 75,000 codices from throughout history and an estimated 1.1 million ancient printed books. It was officially designated the Vatican Apostolic Library (aka Vatican Library or the Vat) in 1475 although the collection is much, much older – one of the oldest in the world. If you are a researcher, and can sufficiently document your need for access, the collection is open for limited periods of time – except for a section of the library known officially as the Vatican Secret Archives. About the Vatican Secret Archives (aka Vatican Secret Library) From the main library, go by the way of Porta Angelica, through Porta di Santa Anna and you will

Yale scientists may have found evidence of an advanced intelligent civilization around a star (KIC 8462852) far, far away

The discovery of an inexplicable light pattern around Tabby's Star It lies 1,481 light years away from Earth, between the constellations of Cygnus and Lyra, sitting above the Milky Way in the Northern hemisphere. The Kepler Space Telescope has trained its eye on the star (dubbed KIC 8462852, TYC 3162-665-1, or Tabby's Star) since 2009 but only since hordes of amateur scientists (a group called Planet Hunters) were recruited to scour through the star's data was the anomaly spotted - an inexplicable anomaly that led many to question whether an alien megastructure was orbiting the sat. Of the discovery, Yale postdoc Tabetha Boyajian told Atlantic Monthly, “We’d never seen anything like this star. It was really weird. We thought it might be bad data or movement on

Ceres Lights – mystery lights on dwarf planet bear striking semblance to street lights of earthly cities

  Scientists were baffled when they were first spotted in 2004 and as NASA’s Dawn spacecraft probe draws nearer to the dwarf planet, the Ceres Lights mystery grows deeper.  The photo above shows the striking similarity between the Ceres Lights and earthly lights photographed from space (Las Vegas in the example above).  That they look near identical is easily apparent.  Chris Russell, principal investigator for the unmanned Dawn mission at the University of California, Los Angeles, agreed that the origin of the lights has scientists scratching their heads: "The bright spots in this configuration make Ceres unique from anything we've seen before in the solar system.” Ceres is the largest object in the asteroid belt which lies between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter.  As of June 6,

Scientists claim to have found alien life high in the Earth’s stratosphere

British scientists believe they have found evidence of alien life after a specially designed balloon sent 27 km into the stratosphere captured small biological organisms that they say can only have come from space. The mission was launched during the Perseid meteor shower in order to check for life amongst the meteor shower debris. The balloon carried sterile microscopic slides which were carefully protected until the balloon reached high into the stratosphere. Once the required height was reached, the slides were exposed to the atmosphere and then sealed before returning. When the balloon fell back down to Earth the scientists discovered microscopic aquatic algae on the microscope slides. In typical geek-speak, the scientists explained their findings: “The entities varied from a presumptive colony of ultra-small bacteria
