Google's UFO Logo Puzzle: A Prediction or Celebration?

GoogleMystery The internet was thrown into a tizzy this holiday weekend when Google changed its logo to show a UFO abducting one of Google’s second O. Does Google know something we don't? Did they intercept an extraterrestrial search query on Google? Is the logo an homage to the message of the new scifi hit, District 9? Or could it be in honor of the anniversary of Voyager 1 spacecraft mission?

But if that was the link then why did Google link their logo to a search for the term “unexplained phenomena”? Google offered a clue on its Twitter page, adding the message “1.12.12 25.15.21.18 15 1.18.5 2.5.12.15.14.7 20.15 21.19″. Swap those numbers for the corresponding letters of the alphabet and you get “All your O are belong to us”.


All of these searches are among the most common this weekend, according to Google Trends. Google regularly changes its logo, but this one appears to be attracting a tsunami of attention. Some have suggested Google is trying to tell us something about aliens arriving soon on Earth.
If you have never heard of the Taos hum conspiracy, the YouTube video below gives a primer. Listen closely!

Is the world’s fascination with the possibility of UFOs and  more a religion or a natural intuitive sense that life is “out there” based on current scientific research and recent planet-search discoveries?

One of the world’s preeminent astrophysicists, Carl Sagan, believed that “the interest in unidentified flying objects derives, perhaps, not so much from scientific curiosity as from unfulfilled religious needs.”

No one could have foreseen the extent to which the idea of  would pervade popular culture prior to the publication in 1897 of H.G. Wells War of the Worlds (see video below) and Kurd Lasswitz’s On Two Planets –both the vanguard of an enormous number of treatments of the alien theme in science fiction.

The modern UFO era and the birth of the extraterrestrial hypothesis began on June 24,1947, when Kenneth Arnold, flying his private plane near Mount Rainier in Washington, reported nine disk-shaped objects flying in formation at speeds he estimated to be over 1,000 miles per hour.

Arnold, a respected businessman and deputy U.S. marshal, was taken seriously and his description of the objects as flying “like a saucer if you skipped it across the water” led to newspapers to coin the term “flying saucer.”

The alien hypothesis first officially emerged in 1948 with the Air Force "Project Sign," which concluded that UFOs were of extraterrestrial origin. The report was later declassified and burned by General Hoyt Vandenburg.

If UFOs exist, how do they traverse the universe? According to conventional wisdom, one can only travel through time in a linear fashion at no faster than the speed of light. At that rate, it would take millions of years to traverse the universe, and who has time for that? If there’s a way to manipulate space and time curvatures, then we have all the time we need.

In sync with India’s love-affair with UFO’s, a recent editorial in a popular Indian news site, UFOs, singularity, time folding (and just about every other theory ever proposed) are a complete given. After all, one aspect of quantum physics is that in an alternate universe, anything could happen.

While several advanced theories do have some solid ideas to back them up, others seem a bit far-fetched—even for those willing to accept that there may be upwards of twenty-six dimensions, rather than the standard four. So what current theory is the most likely to someday satisfactorily explain the science of UFO’s?

Maybe Google's logo is hint that the answer might be forthcoming -soon. How cool would that be!

What do you think it means?

i like the presentation on the mystery of UFO's. Certainly the science has not reached the end of the road. Only the Creator of the Universe knows the entire science there will be. Presently we may well be even below 50% of such total knowledge. Now, regarding the speed limit of velocity of light c, it is strictly valid only if space/time are homogeneous. Even the early universe, in the first quarter of billion years can not be understood presently, as the Physics we have built appears inadequate to tackle such violent conditions that may have prevailed at Big bang and soon thereafter. Yes, the next question comes re. the four dimensions of space /time. Certainly it may be valid only for the latter universe. Again what prevailed when mass and energy contents of our universe were under creation in an intensive way, we can well talk of space/time inhomogeneities. Then, if one can now have a space vehicle that can create condensed space in front and expanded space behind , as it moves forward, it can well exceed the limiting speed of c. It will be a pleasure to invite comments of other physicist/cosmologists to this site and the views expressed in thic comment.

I think you're reading something into a simple variation of a logo that isn't really there.

It must be A SLOW NEWS day for you folks at the Daily Galaxy..... !!

ET visitors are from another dimension, traveling through to our dimension via gravity control. See Michio Kaku's lectures on M-theory and the 11th dimension for an explanation.

"Then, if one can now have a space vehicle that can create condensed space in front and expanded space behind , as it moves forward, it can well exceed the limiting speed of c."

That is one of a few ways we already know of where we can definately travel faster than c, according to Einstein's Law's anyway... developing the technology is a different matter however.

"I think you're reading something into a simple variation of a logo that isn't really there.
It must be A SLOW NEWS day for you folks at the Daily Galaxy..... !!"

The majority of the article is not about the logo, it's about aliens. Anything that invites discussion about, well, anything, is worthy of discussing :D.

Why did you even make that comment, when you could have given us your opinions on the actual article and we could discuss?

ThankGodForAtheism:

O.k., I really hope there is extra - terrestrial life out there, yes. I TRULY DO.

Do I think it's capable of contacting or visiting us from wherever they call home at the present time ?

I would have to say " NO ". Extra - terrestrial civilizations MAY be advanced enough to visit our primitive backwater of a planet, but most might be at an Industrial - Age or pre - Industrial Age. The term " Extra - Terrestrial " doesn't have to automatically conjure up images of beings with flying saucers, laser / ray guns, super - computers, who have advanced abilities & live to be centuries old, all the other accoutrements.....

I'd like to believe they're that advanced, but I just don't. That's an image that science fiction has infused into popular culture since before the 1950's. & they're depicted as either god - like, all - wise & omniscient OR benevolent or malign, warlike & Imperialistic.

This is in honor of the 20th anniversary of Zero Wing, the video game that had poor translation..."all your base are belong to us". However, I'm not sure if it's been 20 years. I even saw this phrase on a T-shirt at the local thrift store...I knew it was from a video game...now I know which one. I found out through Wikipedia.

Intelligent life? Answers are coming, but "we've never been alone" -Bob Dean...so who needs answers? I said who needs answers? Hello? Is anybody there? Does anybody care? Answer me already will ya? So lonely. So...very...lonely.

Jimmy's post about extra - terrestrial visitors from another dimension is rather intriguing, in fact, it seems a little more likely than visitors arriving from Alpha Centauri, Barnard's Star, the Tarantula Nebula, wherever.

Other dimensions might co - exist with ours, touching at points, with the fabric of space - time being stretched thin enough to allow movement between our dimension & theirs.

God or Einstein or Stephen Hawking alone might know how they do it !!!!

'...one of Google's second o...'? Come on! Read beyond the bold print; either '...one of the 'o's' OR '...the second 'o'! PROOFREAD!!!

The Taos Hum.....

Seriously, what connection does this have with the article???!!!

well i didn't know about that logo design of google. Well that's great to discuss.

At that rate, it would take millions of years to traverse the universe, and who has time for that? If there’s a way to manipulate space and time curvatures, then we have all the time we need.

Haha...why did google has the UFO logo? I fail to figure it out...

I didn't read the artile but I listened the Taos Hum which is very interesting. Possible these are some special places where wind makes noise or something.

well i didn't know about that logo design of google. Well that's great to discuss,thanks for sharing the blog.

Does anybody really know what is this matter about? I am not messing around, for real, I am just kind of slow handling this sort of information. I apologize if somebody think I am messing around, because I am actually not.

Actually I don't know the answer

This Google logo looks funny. I like when Google post new logos on holidays. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you for sharing this information. The information was very helpful and saved a lot of my time.

Nice logo. Its good stuff.

I admit, this Google logo looks funny. It is a good marketing thing to publish at holidays!
