NACA press event

Reportedly NASA have to say something important and host special conference on discovery beyond our solar system.

“NASA will hold a news conference at 1 p.m. EST Wednesday, Feb. 22, to present new findings on planets that orbit stars other than our sun, known as exoplanets. The event will air live on NASA Television and the agency’s website.” – NASA.

What we would expect? I guess a small movement on the way of space studying but not something about aliens as may be you thought. However we remember Canada’s former minister of defence Paul Hellyer who started to talk out about that. He said:

” In one of the cases during the cold war, 1961, there were about 50 UFOs in formation flying South from Russia across Europe. The supreme allied commander was very concerned and was about ready to press the panic button when they turned around and went back over the North Pole. They decided to do an investigation and they investigated for three years and they decided that with absolute certainty that four different species, at least, have been visiting this planet for thousands of years. There’s been a lot more activity in the past two decades, especially since we invented the atomic bomb. They are very concerned about that and if we will use it again, because the whole cosmos is a unity and it affects not just us but other people in the cosmos. They’re very much afraid that we might start using atomic weapons again and this would be very bad for us, and them also.” – Paul Hellyer

“Many are benign and benevolent, and a few are not. They come from various places, for a long while I only knew about ones that came from different star systems, the Pleadies. There are extraterrestrials that come from Andromeda, and ones that live on one of Saturn’s moon’s. There is a federation of these people, and they have rules, one of them is that they don’t interfere with our affairs unless they are invited. They have accepted the fact that this is our planet, and we have the right to run it but they are very concerned, they don’t think that we are good stewards of our planet. We are ruining our planet, we’re doing all sorts of things that we shouldn’t be doing, and they don’t like that. They’ve made it clear, and they have given us a warning.” – Paul Hellyer

“Decades ago, visitors from other planets warned us about the direction we were heading and offered to help. Instead, some of us interpreted their visits as a threat, and decided to shoot first and ask questions after. It is ironic that the US should be fighting monstrously expensive wars, allegedly to bring democracy to those countries, when it itself can no longer claim to be called a democracy when trillions, and I mean thousands of billions of dollars have been spent on black projects which both congress and the commander in chief have been kept deliberately in the dark.”

This week is a big one for our world

Atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) levels climbed above the 400 parts per million (ppm) and it’s distinctly possible they won’t be back below that level again in our lifetimes.

“As a human, though, passing both the 400 ppm and (potentially) the 1°C threshold within such a short time period makes it clear we are already living in a different world. We have blown past targets that were being considered as viable when I entered graduate school. We have significantly reduced the options available to us in the future. If we aren’t going to blow past the next set of thresholds — 500 ppm and 2°C — within just a few more decades, we have a lot of work to do in Paris in two weeks and beyond.” Katharine Hayhoe, atmospheric scientist at Texas Tech University.

Space junk is on a collision course with Earth

A mysterious object named by scientists as WT1190F is expected to hit Earth on Friday the 13th. But researchers don’t currently have any idea what it is. Reportedly WT1190F will plunge to Earth from above the Indian Ocean about 65km off the southern tip of Sri Lanka. Scientists say its impact is accurately predicted. More unusual still, WT1190F was a ‘lost’ piece of space debris orbiting far beyond the Moon, ignored and unidentified, before being glimpsed by a telescope in early October. The object is only 1 to 2 meters in size, and its trajectory shows that it has a low density, and is perhaps hollow.

“Blackout Warning”

In case if you haven’t heard yet “the world will be plunged into darkness for 15 days in November, all thanks to rare phenomenon caused by the movement of Venus and Jupiter”, world’s press agencies reported.

But don’t worry, just know this: it’s not true. “No, the universe is not about to realign in June 2015, nor will there be a multi-day blackout at that time during which the Earth will shift into a new dimension. Neither NASA nor any other credible scientific entity has made such a pronouncement.”

67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko strange comet

The spacecraft Philae which land on the comet have picked up strange clusters of organic material that resemble viral particles. Astronomers say features of comet look like black crust and icy lakes. Could comet be a home to alien life? Scientists say: “Yes”. They say that it is more hospitable for life than polar regions of Earth.

This comet is also known as singing one. Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko is singing into space. Rosetta’s Plasma Consortium (RPC) has uncovered a mysterious ‘song’ that Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko sings.

The comet seems to be emitting a ‘song’ in the form of oscillations in the magnetic field in the comet’s environment. It is being sung at 40-50 millihertz, far below human hearing, which typically picks up sound between 20 Hz and 20 kHz. To make the music audible to the human ear, the frequencies have been increased in this recording.

An ET Colony on the Moon?

The unusual object photographed by NASA’s Clementine spacecraft, launched in 1994 has been found on the Moon. Using the actual Google Moon coordinates of the object — 22º42’38.46″N and 142º34’44.52″E — Huffington Post checked it out for ourselves. The other objects were found by HuffPost while maneuvering around the moon’s surface with the Google Moon viewer. While not as perfectly symmetrical as the original object’s seven lights, these others are, nonetheless, as intriguing to look at.

NASA awards grant for 3-D food printer

Thtat’s just fantastic age we’re living on! “One of the major advantages of a 3-D printer is that it provides personalized nutrition,” Contractor told. “If you’re male, female, someone is sick—they all have different dietary needs. If you can program your needs into a 3-D printer, it can print exactly the nutrients that person requires.”

NASA is certainly a believer: The six-month grant comes to $125,000. The agency specifically interested in using the 3-D printer to feed astronauts on long space voyages.

“Long distance space travel requires 15-plus years of shelf life,” Contractor said to Quartz. “The way we are working on it is, all the carbs, proteins and macro and micro nutrients are in powder form. We take moisture out, and in that form it will last maybe 30 years.”

NASA’s MARS SCIENCE LABORATORY, also known as the Curiosity rover, is about to touch down on the Red Planet.

Launched on 26 November 2011, the one-tonne, nuclear-powered, US$2.5 billion explorer will spend years exploring the planet’s surface, searching for clues that Mars might have once have had – or could still have – conditions suitable for primitive, microbial life.
