Never-before-seen colossal comet on a trek toward the sun

Its significantly bigger than any previously known comet! #space #comet #BernardinelliBernstein #astronomy #oortcloud A week after astronomers noticed a new object in the sky, they’ve identified it as a comet. A new visitor is swinging by the solar system: a never-before-observed comet that hails from the Oort Cloud.  This alien object was just designated as a comet Wednesday (June 23), only a week after astronomers first observed it as a tiny, moving dot in archival images from the Dark Energy Camera at the Cerro Tololo Inter-American Observatory in Chile. The comet is now known as Comet C/2014 UN271, or Bernardinelli-Bernstein after its discoverers, … Continue reading Never-before-seen colossal comet on a trek toward the sun

Alien built technology evidence sought by Astronomers

Astronomers seek evidence of tech built by aliens #technosigniture #alien #astronomy #space #UFO An international team of scientists led by a prominent Harvard astronomer announced a new initiative Monday to look for evidence of technology built by extraterrestrial civilizations. Called the Galileo Project, it envisages the creation of a global network of medium-sized telescopes, cameras and computers to investigate unidentified flying objects, and has so far been funded with $1.75 million from private donors. Given recent research showing the prevalence of Earth-like planets throughout the galaxy, “We can no longer ignore the possibility that technological civilizations predated us,” Professor Avi … Continue reading Alien built technology evidence sought by Astronomers

How to detect “stealth” solar storms before they destroy our planet!

While we can see many solar storms coming, some are “stealthy.” A new study shows how to detect them. #space #spaceweather #solarstorms #CME #stealth #detect #astonomy “Stealth” solar storms are difficult to detect before they are near Earth. The use of various imaging techniques from multiple angles allowed researchers to detect these stealth storms earlier than ever. Not seeing one coming could have disastrous effects on our electronic infrastructure. Solar storms are a collection of disturbances on the sun that influence space weather. They include things like solar flares and coronal mass ejections (CMEs), a large release of plasma in … Continue reading How to detect “stealth” solar storms before they destroy our planet!

Proof that Objective reality doesn’t exist

A quantum experiment suggests there’s no such thing as objective reality #Reality #quantum #experiment #science #physics Physicists have long suspected that quantum mechanics allows two observers to experience different, conflicting realities. Now they’ve performed the first experiment that proves it.by  IBM RESEARCH | FLICKR Back in 1961, the Nobel Prize–winning physicist Eugene Wigner outlined a thought experiment that demonstrated one of the lesser-known paradoxes of quantum mechanics. The experiment shows how the strange nature of the universe allows two observers—say, Wigner and Wigner’s friend—to experience different realities. Since then, physicists have used the “Wigner’s Friend” thought experiment to explore the … Continue reading Proof that Objective reality doesn’t exist

Why God is still the best scientific theory to explain our life on Earth

Physicists are increasingly coming to the conclusion our universe was intelligently designed… #space #intelligentdesign #universe #unexplained #god Can aliens explain both the origin of life and the fine tuning? Aliens are in the news again. In June, a Navy report could not rule out the possibility that “unexplained aerial phenomena” spotted in our atmosphere were visitors from outer space. In January, Harvard astronomer Avi Loeb claimed an alien spacecraft had actually swept through our solar system in 2017 — and more are coming. Loeb later doubled down, suggesting that UFOs spotted by the military could be spies sent to gather intelligence about our life on Earth.  … Continue reading Why God is still the best scientific theory to explain our life on Earth

A Major X Class Solar Flare Just Slammed Into Earth

#Xflares #SolarFlares #space #spaceweather #sun #solar A Major X Class Solar Flare Just Slammed Into Earth The strongest solar flare seen in four years erupted from the surface of the sun early Saturday and smacked into our planet’s atmosphere eight minutes later. An explosion from a new and unnamed sunspot produced the X-class flare, the first of solar cycle 25. The blast of x-rays traveled toward earth at the speed of light, colliding with the top of our atmosphere and causing a shortwave radio blackout over the Atlantic ocean and coastal regions.

Methane Detected at Saturn’s Moon May Be of Biological Origin

Here we go again: biology or unknown abiotic process? #Enceladus #Space #Extraterrestrial #Solarsystem #Saturn An international scientific team led by Antonin Affholder from the University of Paris in France wanted to know whether the gases emanating from Saturn’s moon Enceladus are likely of chemical or biological origin. During close fly-bys of the moon ending in 2015, the Cassini spacecraft detected hydrogen and methane, among other gases, which implied the presence of hydrothermal activity in the liquid water ocean beneath Enceladus’s icy surface. Could these be analogous to hydrothermal vents like the “black smokers” on Earth, which are a haven for biology?

How will the universe end?

The Beginning to the End of the Universe: The Big Crunch vs. The Big Freeze #Space #Cosmology #universe #darkmatter #BigCrunch #BigFreeze #BigRip Astronomers once thought the universe could collapse in a Big Crunch. Now most agree it will end with a Big Freeze. If the expanding universe could not combat the collective inward pull of gravity, it would die in a Big Crunch, like the Big Bang played in reverse. However, the cosmos is ballooning up at an ever-increasing rate, which makes most astronomers think the universe will die in a Big Freeze, where any lingering particles are separated by … Continue reading How will the universe end?

Why We Haven’t Met Any Aliens Yet!

#Space #Extraterrestrial #Aliens #Drakeequasion #UFO #exoplanets Extraterrestrial life refers to life forms that did not originate and are not indigenous to our planet. So this term covers all possible types of life outside the Earth: These can be viruses, but also plant-like life forms. Some go even further: they are looking for creatures that are very similar to humans in their complexity or even surpass them, popularly known as aliens. But if there is extraterrestrial life, why hasn’t anyone heard about it until now? Do so-called aliens even exist? The Fermi Paradox addresses this very question. What approaches there are … Continue reading Why We Haven’t Met Any Aliens Yet!
