You may catch it as you're commuting home or walking into the house. At first it looks like a plane but it doesn't move like a plane. It just glistens and when you stare at it long enough you will wonder, "Wow, what is that thing?
With its flying saucer-themed diners and it's proximity to Area 51, the town of Rachel, Nevada has been the UFO capital of America for at least 25 yea...
My always mild-mannered and even-keeled husband caught up with me and yelled, "This is so freaky!!!" We thought we were the only humans within earshot, until we heard a man scream from his yard across the street, "Holy (Bleep)!!!!"
Bill Nye is the consummate scientist -- with a flair for humor. 'Bill Nye the Science Guy' was born after he won a Steve Martin look-a-like contest circa 1978, eventually showcasing his scientific knowledge on PBS from 1993 to 1998. In case you're not sure where else you've seen him, he also hosted 'The 100 Greatest Discoveries,' Science Channel; 'The Eyes of Nye,' PBS; and 'Stuff Happens,' Planet Green.
Astrophysicist Neil Degrasse Tyson recently questioned whether human beings were too stupid for aliens to contact. While he may have a point, if Neil's interested in finding intelligent life on Earth, he should road trip down the Extraterrestrial Highway. It's loaded with tiny gray men.
The likelihood of extraterrestrial life is rising with each new discovery. Some feel that if the discovery of life is just around the corner, this may be an issue for religious dogma.
The Science Review Board from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) recently released their top 10 cases from 2012. Here's a quick summary of these cases.
The "water found on Mars" story is as perennial as Christmas. NASA doesn't need to tell us that again. So why not cut out the seemingly endless stream of robotic middlemen, and just send hardware that will search for life, big or small? Isn't it time to cut to the chase?
The news has been ablaze with the CIA's revelation that Area 51 actually exists. However, this is not the first government document obtained via the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) to name the base.
Elysium, a new sci-fi adventure movie, is about a gigantic fancy space station that is reserved for the rich. To get some insight into space station technology, space tourism, and what it takes to live in space, I was able to interview Mark Uhran, who worked for NASA for 28 years.
I don't know enough about hacking and odds are you don't, either. I set out to learn more at DEF CON, a hacking conference with enough discussions on civil liberties, ethics and philosophy to delight a liberal arts major. Charged to "live an examined life," we should all think harder about our technology, privacy and security.
What UFO proponents and sci-fi story writers too often fail to appreciate is the distance scale of the universe. It is HUGE. REALLY HUGE.
I endeavor to keep an open mind. After all, anyone can make a scientific discovery. And if that someone is outside the cozy halls of academe, how can they make their case? However, I would like to offer an FAQ service for those who would call or write with extraordinary claims.
U.S. intelligence leaks involving UFO activity seem to be a bit of a quandary for federal government agencies. How do you publically admonish someone who is passing along information that the same government denies?
It would be imprudent to ignore Stephen Hawking's words of caution. However, I believe we have little to fear. In all likelihood, the aspirations, longings, griefs, joys, anxieties, fears, failures, and foibles of the aliens from space are much like our own.
When Stan and I first started talking, he warned me that weird things would start happening to me if we continued communicating. Well, he was spot-on.
Orci reveals that while a lot of the cast emerged from just being fans of the book, choosing Harrison Ford was an exciting process.
Trumbull takes his UFO hunting as serious as his movie making. He owns an ex-military hummer that is kitted out with high-tech video equipment for the express purpose of filming a UFO. UFOTOG, the movie, is about a man using this sort of equipment to film a UFO.
"The light wasn't flashing -- it was pulsating. And the oval or saucer shape had a row of light in the center like a ring around the widest part made up of windows where the constant, very dim light, could be seen coming from the inside when the sky was black."
Sitting down on the bus carrying us out through the stunning Darbyshire countryside to a cavern where we would watch an Opening Night film for the Sheffield Doc Fest, little did I know what the woman sitting next to me would come to represent for me.
