Title: UFOs
Post by: RottingCorpse on October 17, 2010, 08:52:41 PM
In another thread Nacho brought up three separate UFO stories that ran within a week of each other. It got me thinking about UFOs so I pulled out my copy of "Alien Agenda" by Jim Marrs. It's conspiracy theory literature at it's best, but I'd say there's some fire in all that smoke.

Anyway, I must have never read the chapter on Foo Fighters and Nazi Flying Saucers because it flabbergasted me.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nazi_UFOs (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nazi_UFOs)

Wiki doesn't mention it but Marrs goes into deep detail about all the high ranking Nazi scientists we assimilated into American life for access to Nazi weapons technology.

Specifically he suggests that Head Nazi Scientist Hans Kammler didn't commit suicide, but continued his weapons work in the U.S.

It's craaaazy shit, man . . . so crazy it could almost be true.

The 'Alien Interview' Footage. Purported to be footage smuggled out of Area 51 that shows a debriefing of an alien who crash landed on Earth. UFOlogists are torn as to its authenticity.

Just once...just fucking once...I want to see a video or a photo of something supernatural taken by a proper camera.

And I don;'t mean a film camera.  I mean, you can get better images from a $10 webcam, or a 7-11 security camera.  When a jet fighter blows up a bunker, you get an image as clear as day.  When it's chasing a UFO, it's like they're using a Kodak black and white Super-8 from 1967.

I feel the same way. Camera technology has evolved to where an idiot can take a clear picture without trying.

Of course, then there's the government cover-up theory that says any clear photos are confiscated before they get disseminated. The way the internet and movie piracy works, I don't see how that would be possible.  Once something's out there, it's out there.

I linked to Kammler above. Lots of interesting stuff there as aliens or no, it seems almost certain that the Nazis were developing some form of flying disk/saucer technology. (And all of it was a precursor to the stealth and VTOL technology employed by most modern military aircraft.)

SETI Institute to shut down alien-seeking radio dishes

If E.T. phones Earth, he'll get a "disconnect" signal.

Lacking the money to pay its operating expenses, Mountain View's SETI Institute has pulled the plug on the renowned Allen Telescope Array, a field of radio dishes that scan the skies for signals from extraterrestrial civilizations.

In an April 22 letter to donors, SETI Institute CEO Tom Pierson said that last week the array was put into "hibernation," safe but nonfunctioning, because of inadequate government support.

The timing couldn't be worse, say SETI scientists. After millenniums of musings, this spring astronomers announced that 1,235 new possible planets had been observed by Kepler, a telescope on a space satellite. They predict that dozens of these planets will be Earth-sized -- and some will be in the "habitable zone," where the temperatures are just right for liquid water, a prerequisite of life as we know it.

"There is a huge irony," said SETI Director Jill Tarter, "that a time when we discover so many planets to look at, we don't have the operating funds to listen."

SETI senior astronomer Seth Shostak compared the project's suspension to "the Niña, Pinta and Santa Maria being put into dry dock. "... This is about exploration, and we want to keep the thing operational. It's no good to have it sit idle.

"We have the radio antennae up, but we can't run them without operating funds," he added. "Honestly, if everybody contributed just 3 extra cents on their 1040 tax forms, we could find out if we have cosmic company."

The SETI Institute's mission is to explore the origin, nature and prevalence of life in the universe. This is a profound search, it believes, because it explains our place among the stars.

The program, located on U.S. Forest Service land near Mount Lassen, uses telescopes to listen for anything out of the ordinary -- a numerical sequence of "beeps," say, or crackly dialogue from an alien version of a disembodied "Charlie" talking to his "Angels." The entire program was set up to prove what once seemed unthinkable: In the universe, we are not alone.

Lack of funding

But funding for SETI has long been a headache for E.T.-seekers. NASA bankrolled some early projects, but in 1994, Sen. Richard Bryan of Nevada convinced Congress that it wasn't worth the cost, calling it the "Great Martian Chase" and complaining that not a single flying saucer had applied for FAA approval.

However, successful private funding came from donors such as Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen, allowing SETI to raise $50 million to build the 42 dishes.

Plans called for construction of 350 individual radio antennas, all working in concert. But what's lacking now is funding to support the day-to-day costs of running the dishes.

This is the responsibility of UC Berkeley's Radio Astronomy Laboratory, but one of the university's major funders, the National Science Foundation, supplied only one-tenth its previous support. Meanwhile, the state of California has also cut funding.

About $5 million is needed over the next two years, according to Tarter. She hopes the U.S. Air Force will help, because the array can be used to track satellite-threatening debris in space. But budgets are tight there as well.

Astronomers mourn

The Allen array is not the only radio telescope facility that can be used for SETI searches. But it is the best; elsewhere, scientists have to borrow time on other telescopes.

Meanwhile, other SETI projects will continue, such as the "setiQuest Explorer" (www.setiquest.org (http://www.setiquest.org)), an application that allows citizen scientist volunteers to look for patterns from existing data that might have been missed by existing algorithms. Through a new partnership with "Galaxy Zoo" (www.galaxyzoo.org (http://www.galaxyzoo.org)), this project runs in real time, so discoveries can be followed up on immediately.
Bay Area astronomers mourned the hiatus of the SETI program and expressed concern about the future.

Rob Hawley of the Peninsula Astronomical Society called it "unfortunate. The Allen scope was a wonderful experiment. "... Hubble gets all the press, but there are lots of limitations."

Amateur astronomer Sarah Wiehe of Palo Alto said, "just knowing SETI is there was significant for us. This is a setback."
"If we miss a distant signal," she added, "it would be a terrible loss."

New book says USSR was behind Roswell UFO

Is truth stranger than conspiracy-theory fiction? A new book on Area 51 that's already generating a ton of buzz says there was no alien spacecraft that crashed in Roswell, New Mexico in 1947. Instead, Stalin did it--maybe.

According to Annie Jacobsen, the reporter who authored "Area 51," the spaceship was actually a Soviet spy plane that came down during a storm. Jacobsen claims it was filled with bizarre-looking, genetically engineered child-sized pilots. Then-Soviet leader Joseph Stalin was hoping, Jacobsen alleges, that the news would cause widespread panic in the U.S.

The story gets even stranger: The leader of the USSR had apparently been inspired by the 1938 radio adaptation  of the HG Wells story "War of the Worlds," produced by Orson Welles. The broadcast triggered panic in some listeners who tuned in and mistook it for a real-life alien invasion. (Though later students of the episode claim that the media of Welles' day vastly exaggerated the scale of public alarm over the broadcast.)

And those ET-looking aviators? They were scientific experiments created by the "Angel of Death," Nazi doctor Josef Mengele, for the USSR after the war. The flight was piloted remotely, according to accounts in the book, and was filled with a crew of "alien-like children."
According to Jacobsen's source, a retired engineer who was put on the project in 1978, the look of the human experiments could explain the alien conspiracy theories: "They were grotesquely deformed, but each in the same manner as the others. They had unusually large heads and abnormally shaped oversize eyes."

Is any of this true? There's no way to prove it. Documents surrounding the Roswell incident are still classified--as is virtually all information related to the mystery spot.

Still, lack of proof hasn't exactly stopped the book from sparking speculation on the media circuit and on the Web. In the last day, Yahoo! searches skyrocketed 3,000 percent for "area 51 book." And the tome is penned not by a crackpot conspirator, but a respected journalist.

Even the New York Times gives her credence, writing in its review: "Although this connect-the-dots UFO thesis is only a hasty-sounding addendum to an otherwise straightforward investigative book about aviation and military history, it makes an indelible impression. 'Area 51' is liable to become best known for sci-fi provocation."

But sci-fi provocation may be all the book generates. After all, without the government coming out and saying what happened back in 1947, even if there was no conspiracy, the stories of the "Roswell Incident" will remain just that.

IF there are classified documents about something that happened in 1947 they should be mostly if not completely declassified at this point. I mean what exactly could be in them that would do any harm to our national security at this time 54 years later?

MOTHMAN!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mothman (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mothman)

We've mentioned the Mothman in other threads, and I nearly posted this in the Documentaries thread because it's the recent Eyes of the Mothman doc which inspired this post.

http://www.netflix.com/Movie/Eyes-of-the-Mothman/70154852 (http://www.netflix.com/Movie/Eyes-of-the-Mothman/70154852)

At two and a half hours long the doc is slightly long in the tooth. However it's a very thorough, measured, and surprisingly level-headed look at the entire history of the Mothman. The whole thing is really well done, starting off with the true story of Chief Cornstalk (and his curse), then explaining the history and environmental issues surrounding the TNT plant where many of the Mothman sightings are centered, and even offering alternative explanations besides cryptids and aliens.

The section on Woody Derenberger (late of Parkersburg, WV) and his meeting with the mysterious "man in black" Indrid Cold is a sphincter clinching horror movie sequence that alone is worth giving the doc a try.

So it's really a regionalist documentary loosely based around a folklore figure?  Because I just read the Wiki and can't believe that anyone thinks "something is out there" based on these descriptions and evidence. 
Title: Re: UFOs
Post by: RottingCorpse on October 27, 2011, 06:17:57 AM
It's definitely a local legend, and all the "evidence" is consistently unreliable witness testimony. That said, the doc does a pretty good job of setting up the non-supernatural/ cryptid possibilities.

Regionally, Mothman is a huge deal though. I don't know if I'd go so far as to say it's part of the local culture. (Though that's definitely true for Point Pleasant proper.) However, there certainly seemed to be a "mass hysteria" element that took over during the era of all the sightings. And the bridge collapse that ended the sightings was the worst in U.S. history up until recently.
Title: Re: UFOs
Post by: nacho on October 27, 2011, 08:15:43 AM
I'm sorry that Chief Cornstalk is being removed from the legend. His curse on the region used to be the centerpiece of the whole thing:

Quote
I was the border man’s friend. Many times I have saved him and his people from harm. I never warred with you, but only to protect our wigwams and lands. I refused to join your paleface enemies with the red coats. I came to the fort as your friend and you murdered me. You have murdered by my side, my young son.... For this, may the curse of the Great Spirit rest upon this land. May it be blighted by nature. May it even be blighted in its hopes. May the strength of its peoples be paralyzed by the stain of our blood.

Sounds like the Ohio Valley region to me!

Mysterious planet-sized object spotted near mercury

Is a giant, cloaked spaceship orbiting around Mercury?

That's been the speculation from some corners aftera camera onboard NASA's STEREO spacecraft caught a wave of electronically charged material shooting out from the sun and hitting Mercury.

Theorists have seized on the images captured from the "coronal mass ejection" (CME) last week as suggestive of alien life hanging out in our own cosmic backyard. Specifically, the solar flare washing over Mercury appears to hit another object of comparable size. "It's cylindrical on either side and has a shape in the middle. It definitely looks like a ship to me, and very obviously, it's cloaked," YouTube-user siniXster said in his video commentary on the footage, which has generated hundreds of thousands of views this week. Now, how this user was able to determine that the object was "obviously" a cloaked spaceship with no other natural explanation remains as much a mystery as the object itself.


Of course, there's another scientifically sanctioned explanation for the curious images, though we're not certain that skeptics and UFO enthusiasts such as SiniXster will endorse it. Natalie Wolchover of Life's Little Mysteries put the question to scientists in the solar physics branch at the United States Naval Research Laboratory (NRL). They're the people who analyze data from the Heliospheric Imager-1 (HI-1)--better known in this context as the camera that shot the footage in question.

Head NRL group scientist Russ Howard and lead ground systems engineer Nathan Rich say the mysterious object is in fact Mercury itself. And what we're seeing in the footage is the equivalent of Mercury's wake, "where the planet was on the previous day," as it travels through the solar system on its natural gravitational path:

"To make the relatively faint glow of a coronal mass ejection stand out against the bright glare of space—caused by interplanetary dust and the stellar/galactic background—the NRL scientists must remove as much background light as possible. They explained that they determine what light is background light, and thus can be subtracted out, by calculating the average amount of light that entered each camera pixel on the day of the CME event and on the previous day. Light appearing in the pixels on both days is considered to be background light and is removed from the footage of the CME. The remaining light is then enhanced."

The analysts say the practice works even better when applied to far-off objects such as stars, which don't move much relative to the sun. But for moving objects, especially planets, the process is a little more complicated. And making matters even trickier is Mercury's staus as the closest planet to the sun.

"When [this averaging process] is done between the previous day and the current day and there is a feature like a planet, this introduces dark (negative) artifacts in the background where the planet was on the previous day, which then show up as bright areas in the enhanced image," Rich explained in an email.

Divers find large, unexplained object at bottom of Baltic Sea

A team of salvage divers has discovered an unexplained object resting at the bottom of the Baltic Sea near Sweden.

"This thing turned up. My first reaction was to tell the guys that we have a UFO here on the bottom," said Peter Lindberg, the leader of the amateur treasure hunters.

Sonar readings show that the mysterious object is about 60 meters across, or, about the size of a jumbo jet. And it's not alone. Nearby on the sea floor is another, smaller object with a similar shape. Even more fascinating, both objects have "drag marks" behind them on the sea floor, stretching back more than 400 feet.

"Could this be the Star Wars Millenium Falcon, a plug to an inner world or a marine version of Stonehenge?" asks CNN's Brooke Bowman:

Well, it could just be another shipwreck. Or, mud.

But Lindberg says the ship theory doesn't really hold up because of the unusually large size of the objects. "Of course it would be something from another ship but it's quite big," he told CNN. Lindberg notes that some observers have speculated that the objects may be Russian warships built around the end of the 1800's. However, Lindberg points out that not only were those ships much smaller, they were not patrolling the Baltic during that era.

The Baltic Sea is a literal treasure trove for salvage teams and a "shipwreck laboratory" for researchers. The sea's low salinity levels help preserve objects that sink to the bottom. "Right now, we know about 20,000 objects, mostly shipwrecks, in the Baltic Sea. But I think there may be more than 100,000," said sonar expert Ardreas Olsson, "I'm not sure what you will see when you go down. But I'm excited. It's going to be interesting to see what it is."

The Ocean Explorer team first made their find back in August and had no plans to return to the scene. For now, Lindberg is waiting for calmer waters in the Baltic, possibly in May, before taking his salvage team to the bottom for a closer look at the mysterious objects. They originally had no plans to return to the spot, but the spike in interest from the public has led them to begin planning a return trip.

Aliens may be among us, and if you believe recent claims by a former U.S. government consultant, former President Dwight D. Eisenhower met with them on multiple occasions in the 1950s.

Rumors that Ike held three summits with extraterrestrials—who had a Nordic look, according to author and former Pentagon consultant Timothy Good—have circulated in the past, though the latest claim gives them even more weight.

According to Good, Eisenhower and a contingent of G-men met up with the alien delegation at a military installation in (you guessed it) New Mexico in 1954.

"President Eisenhower had three encounters, set up meetings with aliens, which took place at certain air force bases, including Holloman Air Force Base in New Mexico," Good said on the BBC2 series Opinionated. "Aliens have made both formal and informal contact with thousands of people throughout the world from all walks of life. ... We know that up to 90 percent of all UFO reports can be explained in conventional terms. However, I would say millions of people worldwide have actually seen the real thing."

A separate report from 2010 gives Good's story even more credence, as former New Hampshire state representative Henry McElroy Jr. said he saw the classified briefing document that prepped Eisenhower for the meeting.

Luckily for us, according to McElroy, the aliens seemed to be of the friendly variety.

"To the best of my memory, this brief was pervaded with a sense of hope, and it informed President Eisenhower of the continued presence of extraterrestrial beings here in the United States of America," McElroy said, as reported by the Huffington Post UK. "The tone of the brief indicated to me that there was no need for concern, since these visitors were in no way causing any harm or had any intentions whatsoever of causing any disruption then or in the future."

So there you have it: Eisenhower struck secret deals with Viking-esque aliens in the mid-1950s. If that's not the perfect setup for a B-movie, I don't know what is.

Interdimensional Portals Observed By Astronomers?

21 March, 2012

MessageToEagle.com - Several very unusual round luminous circles have been observed in the night sky world-wide.

Some of the observations have been made by astronomers who simply cannot explain what they are seeing.

Are these strange objects interdimensional portals in our planet's atmosphere, multi-colored, glowing UFOs or perhaps an unknown planet?

What ever they are, these objects are very puzzling and they do not correspond to any known object on our world.

On January 23 a strange unidentified flying object was recorded by the witness Halit Safin in Ufa, Russia. The object looks like a UFO ring that moves in a slowly controlled manner. The pulsating light are various colors.

As these images show, the mysterious object never loses its ring shape and although it is moving it maintains its ring structure.

Similar objects have been observed in United Kingdom and Mexico.

The objects are black in the middle, which is the reason why some think they could be interdimensional portals.

Go to the link.... Trust me.

UFO or hoax? Arial video over South Korean stirs speculation

A new video has surfaced that some claim shows a saucer-shaped UFO zooming past the window of a passenger airplane flying over Seoul, South Korea.

In the video, the unidentified passenger is filming the otherwise uneventful view from the plane's window. Suddenly he makes a startled sound as the white saucer-like image comes into view.

Later in the video, the purported UFO image is magnified. Ultimately, it looks more like an ivory colored bowler hat than a piece of futuristic flying technology. Is this just bad computer-generated imagery (CGI) and a cheap hoax from a prankster or a genuine unidentified object caught on film?

The same writer who speculates on the origin of this object also recently wrote about video taken from one of NASA's live video feeds. In that video, three objects in a triangle formation appear on screen about five minutes into the video. Someone from NASA chimes in to say the object is actually a piece of foil, aka space junk, and that its reflection is giving the appearance of three objects in a triangle formation.

'Alien-Like' Skulls Excavated in Mexico

 Human skulls deliberately warped into strange, alien-like shapes have been unearthed in a 1,000-year-old cemetery in Mexico, researchers say.

The practice of deforming skulls of children as they grew was common in Central America, and these findings suggest the tradition spread farther north than had been thought, scientists added.

The cemetery was discovered by residents of the small Mexican village of Onavas in 1999 as they were building an irrigation canal. It is the first pre-Hispanic cemetery found in the northern Mexican state of Sonora.

The site, referred to as El Cementerio, contained the remains of 25 human burials. Thirteen of them had deformed skulls, which were elongate and pointy at the back, and five had mutilated teeth. [See Photos of the 'Alien' Skulls]

Dental mutilation involves filing or grinding teeth into odd shapes, while cranial deformation involves distorting the normal growth of a child's skull by applying force — for example, by using cloths to bind wooden boards against their heads.

"Cranial deformation has been used by different societies in the world as a ritual practice, or for distinction of status within a group or to distinguish between social groups," said researcher Cristina García Moreno, an archaeologist at Arizona State University. "The reason why these individuals at El Cementerio deformed their skulls is still unknown."

"The most common comment I've read from people that see the pictures of cranial deformation has been that they think that those people were 'aliens,'" García added. "I could say that some say that as a joke, but the interesting thing is that some do think so. Obviously we are talking about human beings, not of aliens."

Of the 25 burials, 17 were children between 5 months and 16 years of age. The high number of children seen at the site could suggest inept cranial deformation killed them due to excessive force against the skull. The children had no signs of disease that caused their deaths.

Although cranial deformation and dental mutilation were common features among the pre-Hispanic populations of Mesoamerica and western Mexico, scientists had not seen either practice in Sonora or the American Southwest, which share a common pre-Hispanic culture. The researchers suggest the people at El Cementerio had been influenced by recent migrants from the south.

"The most important implication would be to extend the northern boundary of the Mesoamerican influence," García told LiveScience.

A number of skeletons also were found with earrings, nose rings, bracelets, pendants and necklaces made from seashells and snails from the Gulf of California. One person was buried with a turtle shell on the chest. It remains uncertain why some of these people were buried with ornaments while others were not, or — another mystery — why only one of the 25 skeletons was female.

During the next field season, the researchers aim to determine the cemetery's total size and hope to find more burials to get a clearer idea of the society's burial customs. "With new information, we also hope to determine whether there was any interaction between these and Mesoamerican societies — how it was and when it happened," they said.

García and her colleagues completed their analysis of the skeletal remains in November. They plan to submit their research to either the journal American Antiquity or the journal Latin American Antiquity.

Mysterious ‘flying saucer’ slides found in documents leaked by Edward Snowden

A mysterious set of slides showing alien spacecraft have cropped up amid the trove of documents released by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden - and ignited a frenzy of debate among internet UFO fans.

The set of slides are part of a Powerpoint presentation created by British spy agency GCHQ - Government Communications Headquarters - and, among 50 uncaptioned images are three which seem to show flying saucers.

Alien-hunters and UFOlogists are now poring over the images - although one of the ‘UFOs’ has been dismissed as an “out of focus picture of a seagull having a poo.”

Nigel Watson, author of the Haynes UFO Investigations Manual says that while the slides may not be evidence of alien invaders, they are the next best thing for conspiracy theorists - evidence of government mind control. The document offers guidelines for spies on how to spread lies on the internet.
                                   
Watson says, “The main evidence for the cover-up of UFO reports and manipulation of UFO beliefs, as revealed by the documents released by Edward Snowden, is contained in a Powerpoint presentation called, ‘The Art of Deception: Training for a New Generation of Online Covert Operations’.

“This was produced by the GCHQ (Government Communications Headquarters), British secret intelligence agency and features fifty slides related to using the internet for psychological operations (psy-ops).It was produced by a unit called the Joint Threat Research Intelligence Group (JTRIG) for presentations to the US, National Security Agency (NSA) and other agencies.”

Watson says that the slides show that, far from having captured aliens or dissected them, governments fear the power of belief in UFOs - and want to manipulate this for their own ends.

American journalist and author Glenn Greenwald wrote an essay relating to the documents, saying, that it showed goverments were practising techniques “to inject all sorts of false material onto the internet in order to destroy the reputation of its targets - and to use social sciences and other techniques to manipulate online discourse and activism to generate outcomes it considers desirable.”


In the Fifties, the CIA feared that people who claimed to have contacted aliens would spread communist-like philosophy, Watson says - or that reports of sightings could be deliberately released to camouflage a nuclear missile attack.

What the new document proves is that governments are still aware of the power of UFOs as a tool for ‘controlling’ the public - and are ensuring they are ready to use this tool in the age of the internet.

“Government agencies are still aware of the power of the belief in UFOs, and that they are willing to use the Internet to exploit these beliefs,” says Watson. “Such deception can be used as a means of covering-up more mundane terrestrial activities (like the testing of secret aircraft or military exercises) or to undermine the credibility of ufologists.”

“The overall point of the presentation is to discuss how the Internet and modern media can be used to discredit people and to spread deception. Unfortunately, there is no explanatory text with the UFO pictures, so we can only speculate about what point they were being used to make.”

What is certain, though, Watson says, is that the document does not provide final proof that earth has been invaded, or even ‘buzzed’ by little green men in flying saucers - the pictures themselves are old, well-known, and widely believed to be fake.

“The presentation features three UFO pictures, on slides 35 to 37. The first is a black and white picture of a UFO over Redbud, Illinois, taken on 23 April 1950, the second a screenshot of a UFO video by Arturo Robles Gil filmed in Mexico and the third was taken on 01 August 2011 by a holidaymaker at Black Head, Trenarren near St. Austell, Cornwall,” Watson says.

“ They have been explained respectively by sceptics as a hub cap thrown in the air, a deflated mylar balloon and an out-of-focus seagull taking a poo.”

The pictures are not convincing proof of the existence of UFOs, but they do indicate that Government agencies like this are aware of the power of UFO images especially today when such images can be easily produced and manipulated.

I joke constantly that we'll be beating each other in the street over a glass of clean water in 25 years, but it's not all that far fetched.

Which is why the Police of America are presently being allowed to get away with, literally, murder... propagating a healthy attitude that Police can do whatever they want to you if you speak out, and the Police won't be afraid to protect their corporate masters using any means... which is also why the Police are now being fully militarized, with hardcore weaponry, tanks, etc... and even fucking drones. Hence why training manuals for the military, home guard, and Police commissioners are detailing how to combat urban rebellion and resistant uprisings.

I am fairly confident that crazy kid NK is just slightly past the stone age.  Maybe they'll launch a circa 1960s design ICBM at California and maybe we'll spot it the second it launches, watch it for a few more seconds, and then go, oh, right, and push a button that blows it up. And then the entire planet will steamroll across them.

Alien life is somewhat a pointless discussion topic: any planets suitable for nourishing life are so far away that we shall never come into contact with them, and if any life forms are advanced enough to travel vast distances to Earth they would be so far advanced, so far ahead of us, they would either view us as insects, comparatively, and have no desire to communicate, or we simply wouldn't understand them and would try to kill them with shotguns and the Lord's prayer and bring down upon ourselves a fiery extinction.

Old, old reply to the argument! Of course, we have no idea do we? If we find something and point all of our radios at it and the message is received, who's to say they won't reply? They may be comparable to us or not much more advanced. It's possible, if even more advanced, that they haven't found us for the same reason we haven't found them -- you have to know where you're looking.

What bothers me about folks who say this --  why does alien life automatically have to be super advanced? Let's take "ability to travel to each other's planets" off the table. Theoretically, it is possible to have a conversation. Just with a few years lag time! Also theoretically, all life has the same basic rules. Would a diagram of a molecule be completely unrecognizable to an alien? What universal truths are there? Math? Music? Are we the only ones capable of creating a pattern with a signal, even if it's seemingly meaningless? A pattern signal mimicking a heartbeat from some planet orbiting some star counts as communication. Even if another planet transmits goobledy-gook, it counts as communication.
Title: Re: UFOs
Post by: monkey! on July 16, 2014, 05:56:16 PM
A conversation with just a few years of lag time? The closest planet capable of possibly habouring life is 12 light years away... a huge distance. Radio signals would take generations* to travel that far... and we have yet to develop a way of sending data signals by light, without cables, that would not simply disperse over long distances in space.

Let's say we do receive communication from the aliens' end that is gobbledy-gook. How would humans understand it, and how should we reply without prerequisite technology so our message wouldn't take generations to be delivered?


*On Nov. 16, 1974, astronomer Frank Drake dedicated a new observatory in Arecibo, Puerto Rico, by sending humankind’s first deliberate communication to extraterrestrials. The message, made up of 1,679 seemingly random zeros and ones, was shorter than the first four paragraphs of this article, but it still took three minutes to send. While the message began its voyage to the cosmos–a 24,000 year trip to M-13, a cluster of stars in the constellation Hercules, to be exact–visiting dignitaries listened over a loudspeaker while each bit played as a short, high-pitched tone. Some participants later said it brought tears to their eyes.
Title: Re: UFOs
Post by: nacho on July 17, 2014, 10:11:10 AM
The Arecibo message wasn't intended to be received. It's not possible since M13 won't be in the same position. It was intended to prove that the system devised to send messages will work.

Radio waves are not sound waves, they're light waves. That is, they travel at the speed of light (if not interfered with by a hundred various things, but Arecibo's purpose was to show that it won't be interfered with). It will take the message roughly 24,000 years to reach M13 because M13 is roughly 24,000 light years away.

So, that possibility 12 light years away? If we sent a message now and they replied in kind, we'd have the reply in roughly 24 years.

Simply receiving the message is a win. I think replying falls under "we'll cross that bridge when we get to it" since a clear message on any level will change everything on its own.

On Deathbed, Former ‘Lockheed Martin Engineer’ With ‘Top Secret Clearance’ Opens Up About…Aliens

A man who claimed to be a former Lockheed Martin engineer said on his deathbed that aliens are real and have visited Earth, in a now-viral video posted to YouTube.

Boyd Bushman, who claimed to be a Lockheed Martin and Texas Instruments engineer, died on August 7th at the age of 78, but left behind a video with explosive claims about possible extraterrestrial life.

“I do have a top secret clearance,” the 78-year-old said at the beginning of an interview with Mark Q. Patterson, an aerospace engineer, according to the video.

Bushman then detailed incidents with “aliens” at Roswell, presenting what he said was photo evidence of the extraterrestrial beings.

“They were approximately four and a half to five feet tall,” he said. “They have three back bones. They’re actually cartilage.”

Bushman said that the aliens had fingers and toes like humans, but claimed they communicated in a much more advanced way.

“They’re able to use their own voice by telepathy to talk to you,” he said. “You walk in the room with one of them, and all of a sudden you find yourself giving the answer to your question in your own voice.”

According to Bushman, there are “two types of aliens.”

“It’s like a cattle ranch,” he said, noting that some could live for more than 200 years. “One group is wranglers, and the others are rustlers — the stealers of cattle.”

Bushman said that the “wranglers” are “much more friendly and have a better relationship with us.” He also said that the alien planet is some 65 light-years away from Earth, but can be traveled to in under an hour using alien technology.

According to a Texas news outlet, a biography accessed through an Internet archiving site appeared to validate claims that Bushman worked at Lockheed Martin, saying he worked in “advanced aircraft concepts.”

Footage of the interview was posted in early October, however, only garnered attention in recent days. It has since surged on the Internet, amassing more than 2 million views on YouTube.

PS: Script Idea pitch. I write, you film. This is off the cuff...needs some thinking in act three:

"Come And See"

Earth is blasted by radio signals from 5.5 billion light years away (i.e., the beginning of time):
http://www.theage.com.au/technology/sci-tech/australian-scientist-becomes-the-first-person-to-witness-a-mysterious-cosmic-radio-wave-burst-live-20150120-12uikr.html

After 10 years, scientists figure out WTF. A message is encoded in each FRB -- "Come And See."

Belief that this is a "God Signal" leads to turmoil on Earth and, on the brink of a global war between neo-Christians following the "God Signal" set and the rest of the population thinking, OMG, WTF, a generations hip is constructed. By 2054, the ship is ready to launch...homing in on the God Signal which is just blindly repeating "Come And See" in bursts.

We pick up in 2170. The generation ship is approaching the speed of light after 120 years of acceleration. A caretaker crew while most folks are in stasis are left to make sure the ship doesn't explode. The story follows this caretaker crew -- six people -- who mainly take after Harry Dean Stanton and Yaphet Kotto in Alien, with a couple of moody officers, one of whom is "addicted" to the God Signal and is Sunshine 1-Captain crazy whenever the ship intercepts a pulse, turning up the volume and stripping down to soak the shit up as it blasts him in a tiny room on the ship.

The other officer has another obsession -- he can't raise Earth. No contact, in fact, for nearly 70 years.

I think we do the claustrophobic shipboard insanity, brought to a head in act two when the God Signal suddenly changes to something creepy. This divides the crew just as they hit light speed and have some Event Horizon horror shit going on, which is just a crazy crewmember. Comic relief in act two with Scream-style meta-knowledge of the sci-fi tropes playing out.

It all leads to a climax where the religious freak God Signal addicted officer is killed because he's decided to destroy the ship or something. The whole time he's painted as a scary Da Vinci Code bad guy and the saner officer and blue collar crew are the good guys and we're rooting for them. Go good guys! Kill the scary monster guy!

Finale: The God Signal changes again: "Good. Kill Again. Kill All."

That's a pretty good pitch, actually. Right up my alley.

I've pitched you my alien idea, right? That when we dropped the A-Bombs on Hiroshima and Nakaskai, a bunch of aliens descended on the planet, studied us, then decided we should never be allowed to leave the planet because we're too dangerous. Then they basically leave a small fleet of alien ships on guard duty. Basically, all the alien sightings form the past 70 years are just these aliens being bored as hell.

Cut to now and some scientist is on the verge of creating a warp drive or something similar. The aliens assassinate him and his plans fall into the hands of Johnny (or Jenny) Down-On-His-Luck Everyman who's now on the run from aliens, the CIA, and Russian spies.

Now both of these are in public forum for some talentless hack to make millions with.

Yep, you've told me that. There are elements of that in an Outer Limits episode and we get it from mankind's POV in The World's End. But I love the They Live everyman angle.

The only talentless hacks are us because both ideas above simply mesh together sci-fi tropes already explored! (Psst: The Destiny in Stargate Universe was following a God Signal.)

NASA Cuts ISS Live Feed As 'UFO' Appears

They did it in the sixties. And they're still doing it now.

A strange grey UFO has caused something of a stir in the conspiracy community after NASA caught the object on its ISS live feed camera and then promptly cut the lived feed as soon as it appeared.

The small, grey object is seen coming up over the horizon and then disappearing just moments later as NASA cuts the feed and switches to another of the cameras.

The event took place on 15 January 2015 and will no doubt fuel conspiracy theorist's belief that NASA is deliberately hiding footage of potential UFOs.

One of the simplest theories to this conundrum is that it's an artifact on the lens, or indeed the Moon. 'Streetcap1', the YouTuber responsible for the video doesn't hold with either though, posting a second video proving that it couldn't be the Moon.

The biggest mystery however is why NASA didn't just use duct tape to cover it up. That's what they did before, after all.

Quote
Astronomers monitoring signals on the telescope at the Parkes Observatory in New South Wales, Australia, have been dealing with an unidentified signal for 17 years, ever since it popped up back in 1997. According to The Guardian, they remained baffled by the perytons, described as "millisecond-duration transients of terrestrial origin," for years, until the team installed a new receiver to help monitor interference.

As a new report reveals, the team finally found the culprit -- a break room microwave housed in the observatory's kitchen.

A massive star has been providing such odd data that it's prompted some eyebrow-raising speculation among scientists.

Astronomer Phil Plait writes at his Bad Astronomy blog that the star, located 1,500 light-years from us and called KIC 8462852, has been observed by NASA's Kepler telescope to have drastic dips in its brightness. As Plait notes, such dips are one way in which we have been able to find thousands of exoplanets while looking at other stars: When a world orbits in front of the star as seen from Earth, it creates a tiny, regularly repeating dimming of that star's light and signals the existence of the planet.

Those dimmings, however, often amount to less than 1 percent of the star's total brightness, and what makes KIC 8462852 so bizarre is that not only are the dips in its light not following the kind of regular schedule that would indicate a planetary orbit, but they have dimmed the star's light by anywhere from 15 to 22 percent -- a massive dropoff.

Plait says that even a rock the size of Jupiter wouldn't cause that kind of blackout, so we're not talking about a giant planet here. Instead, the dips -- and there are many of them, happening at irregular intervals, in varying shapes and lasting all different lengths of time -- are being caused by something that could be half the width of the star itself.

Already ruled out as possible causes are things like mechanical error in the telescope or debris from a planetary collision. One potential cause is a group of comets orbiting the star, although it would apparently be difficult for even those to block nearly a quarter of the star's light. So while that's one possible answer, it's not a definitive one.

So, what else could it be? The lead author of a paper on the star, Tabetha Boyajian, working in conjunction with astronomer Jason Wright, has floated the idea that the dimming could be caused by an artificially constructed object such as a Dyson sphere, a titanic structure of millions of solar panels surrounding a star and capturing its energy for use by an advanced civilization.

They've submitted a request to have a telescope pointed at the star to scan for signals. This is up to a committee and, once it happens, all they'll find out is if there is something that looks like artificial radio static. If they find anything like that, then they'll have to petition the VLA to grant them special access to listen properly.

It's at that point they'll hear all the messages about how, 1500 years ago, the residents of the system decided to launch a crusade against Earth and their ships are due in our orbit in 37 hours.

This has evolved into the slightly-more-mainstream-than-Facebook news because It's Weird(tm). Everyone agrees that the regularity of the dip, and the size of it, indicates something that We Don't Understand(tm).

It's probably just a super-Jupiter or a sea of comets that got tired and decided to hang out.

UFO expert found dead after ‘vomiting black liquid’

A conspiracy theorist has been found dead in Poland — just days after he texted his mom instructing her to “investigate” should anything happen to him.

Max Spiers, a 39-year-old father of two, was found dead on a sofa in Poland, where he had gone to give a talk about conspiracy theories and UFOs.

He was ruled to have died from natural causes despite no post-mortem examination being carried out on his body.

But his dark investigations into UFOs and government coverups may have made him enemies who wanted him dead, says mother Vanessa Bates, 63.

In a chilling text message to his mom just days before his death, Spiers wrote: “Your boy’s in trouble. If anything happens to me, investigate.”

Originally from Canterbury, Spiers was a former classmate of Orlando Bloom.

He lived in the United States for a few years but returned to the UK to stay with his mother, before jetting off to Poland.

Bates said: “He was making a name for himself in the world of conspiracy theorists and had been invited to speak at a conference in Poland in July.”

“He was staying with a woman who he had not known for long and she told me how she found him dead on the sofa.”

“But I think Max had been digging in some dark places and I fear that somebody wanted him dead.”

Spiers’ pals have claimed that he “vomited a black liquid” when he died in a Warsaw apartment.

Speaking to Project Camelot, friend Miles Johnson said: “A person has died here and I don’t think it’s good enough [that] somebody who just took normal medication should end up vomiting, spewing black liquid, whatever it was.

“And then shortly after that, whatever length of time it was, died.”

Max made a career out of investigating UFO sightings and alleged coverups.

More recently, he was said to be probing into the lives of well-known figures in politics, business and entertainment.

His unexplained death, and its subsequent treatment by the authorities, has left many online followers convinced he was killed by government agents.

Conspiracy theorists have long been convinced that UFO chasers who get too close to the truth are “bumped off” by the secret services or so-called men in black.

On one website, Project Camelot, a blogger wrote: “The entire circumstances are suspicious and I urge everyone to encourage the release of details about what really happened and call for an autopsy.”

Another, Craig Hewlett, added: “If it wasn’t true what he talks about then why would they kill him? Healthy people don’t just get sick and die, they get poisoned.”

Bates, an English teacher, also buys into the theories.

She said: “Max was a very fit man who was in good health and yet he apparently just died suddenly on a sofa.”

“All I have is a death certificate from the Polish authorities that it was from natural causes, but no post-mortem was done so how can they tell that? They are also refusing to release any paperwork about it to me because, absurdly, I don’t have his written permission.”

Spiers was buried in a Canterbury cemetery after his mother arranged to have his body flown home a week after his death.

A post-mortem examination was carried out by a pathologist in east Kent, but Bates says that more than two months later she still does not know the result, or whether there will be an investigation.

She added: “Apparently, he had not suffered any obvious physical injuries but he could have been slowly poisoned, which is why the results of toxicology tests from his post-mortem are so important.”

“He has a brother, Josh, and sister, Becky, who are both devastated, as are his two boys. We all want answers to this and I will continue to fight to get to the truth.”

The North East Kent coroner’s office would only confirm the death was at the “very early” stages of their investigation.

Strange messages coming from the stars are ‘probably’ from aliens, scientists say

Scientists have heard hugely unusual messages from deep in space that they think are coming from aliens.

A new analysis of strange modulations in a tiny set of stars appears to indicate that it could be coming from extraterrestrial intelligence that is looking to alert us to their existence.

The new study reports the finding of specific modulations in just 234 out of the 2.5 million stars that have been observed during a survey of the sky. The work found that a tiny fraction of them seemed to be behaving strangely.

Nasa's most stunning pictures of space

And there appears to be no obvious explanation for what is going on, leaving the scientists behind the paper to conclude that the messages are coming from aliens.

“We find that the detected signals have exactly the shape of an [extraterrestrial intelligence] signal predicted in the previous publication and are therefore in agreement with this hypothesis,” write EF Borra and E Trottier in a new paper. “The fact that they are only found in a very small fraction of stars within a narrow spectral range centered near the spectral type of the sun is also in agreement with the ETI hypothesis,” the two scientists from Laval University in Quebec write.

The research has appeaed in the journal Publications of the Astronomical Society of the Pacific, under the title 'Discovery of peculiar periodic spectral modulations in a small fraction of solar type stars'. It appears to have been originally suggested for publication with the name 'Signals probably from Extraterrestrial Intelligence', according to a pre-print version of the paper hosted online.

But they make clear that further work will need to be done to confirm or deny that hypothesis. That will need to be done by watching for the same signals on different equipment so that all other explanations can be discarded.

Breakthrough Listen – an initiative set up this year to look for alien life and supported by people including Stephen Hawking and Mark Zuckerberg – said that the message was promising. But they said that further work will have to be done before they can be “unequivocally attributed” to aliens.

“The one in 10,000 objects with unusual spectra seen by Borra and Trottier are certainly worthy of additional study,” the team said in a statement. “However, extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.

Hawking launches alien search

“It is too early to unequivocally attribute these purported signals to the activities of extraterrestrial civilizations. Internationally agreed-upon protocols for searches for evidence of advanced life beyond Earth (SETI) require candidates to be confirmed by independent groups using their own telescopes, and for all natural explanations to be exhausted before invoking extraterrestrial agents as an explanation.

“Careful work must be undertaken to determine false positive rates, to rule out natural and instrumental explanations, and most importantly, to confirm detections using two or more independent telescopes.”
