In our Part I article, we mentioned how numerous scientists over the past 65 years, since Fermi first raised the question "Where is everybody?", have examined Fermi's paradox and have proposed solutions. There is still no easy answer.
"Once, humans believed that the earth was flat," he said. "Even a decade ago, people would not believe that a cell phone could work. Humans, if we have never seen something with our own eyes, naturally doubt that it exists, or that life could be that way. I was the first to be brave enough to say: 'I saw that.'"
An odd phenomenon that's descriptively called a "fast radio burst" is the latest celestial discovery to capture the attention of both astrophysicists and the media -- and be labeled by some as the work of crafty extraterrestrials.
On the 5th of March, what has been called the most stunning evidence ever in the world of Ufology, was publicly uncurtained in New Mexico.
Cosmologists propose that the universe was until recently a lifeless collection of particles. But they have ignored a critical component of the cosmos because they don't know what to do with it. This component, consciousness, is an utter mystery. How did inert, random bits of matter ever morph into Obama or Lady Gaga?
Today marks the 73rd anniversary of The Battle of Los Angeles, also known as The Great LA Air Raid, one of the most mysterious incidents of World War II -- and one of the most colorful tales in all of UFO lore. It's also a tale we couldn't resist turning into a movie.
Much more data on UFOs has been accumulated than ever before, and files have been released around the world. The phenomenon's physical reality is now firmly established. But its nature and origin remain a problem. We need to join the other countries taking responsible action in addressing this persistent mystery, preferably at the White House level.
Except for a few notable exceptions, nearly all stars appear as mere points of light because their distance simply precludes our current capabilities from seeing otherwise. Let's look at a cool analogy to understand the issue and how it relates to planets.
So what happens if the aliens land? Here, on Earth. I'm not talking about detecting a radio signal or a laser flash from hundreds of light-years away. I'm speaking of visitors who actually set their boots on the ground. What do we do? It may surprise you to learn that there's precious little preparation for such an eventuality.
Several unidentified flying objects have been spotted over nuclear power plants in France and Belgium over the last few months, and the story has been all over European news.
I recently wrote about the United States Air Force's files regarding their investigation of UFOs, Project Blue Book, and how they have become more accessible. The news regarding these files has become a big national story, albeit much of the coverage has been inaccurate.
Looking at our own Solar System helps us understand how the placement of an Exoplanet within the habitable zone of its star will drastically affect its climate.
There's plenty of real estate for extraterrestrial life, right? Well, maybe not.
Okay, so we are all tired of those just-another-UFO-video thingies that take the Internet by surprise every now and then. But here's something I found that was a little unorthodox, perhaps even interesting. You be the judge.
Like gifts left by Santa, the crops appeared to the eye on Christmas morning, while couple witnesses reported seeing bright lights around the area the night before.
Being in a planet so abundant in water, oxygen and resources, it is hard to imagine that life could thrive in any situation but everything seems to be so perfectly balanced for the existence of life, perhaps that's why till now, the search for Extraterrestrial life has only been confined to planets with resources of air and water. Till now.
An alien abduction can either be a shocking experience or an illuminating one, better yet, sometimes it's both. But here's something, coming from a 33-year-old UK artist, that seems a bit more unique.
Travis Walton's alleged UFO sighting and subsequent abduction is one of the strangest, most credible, and most famous alien abduction stories. Now, 39 years after the event, Walton invited the public to join him for a nighttime sky watch at the site where it all went down.
Thinking about whether a particular set of religious practices or beliefs would make sense on a different planet might be a valuable exercise in understanding ourselves.
To explain why our actions are so dangerous, here is what we might say to an alien if we ever made contact, and here is how it may be interpreted.
