A Colossal Jet-Stream of Molten Iron as Hot as the Sun Revealed Revealed by X-Ray Satellite Flowing Under Alaska and Siberia

 

Earth-space

 

 

 

A colossal jet stream, a river of molten iron has been found surging under Alaska and Siberia which is estimated to be about 420 km wide (260 miles) some some 3,000 kilometers (1,864 miles) below the surface and nearly as hot as the surface of the Sun, has tripled in speed in less than two decades, and is now headed towards Europe.

"The mystery of why we haven't yet found signs of aliens may have less to do with the likelihood of the origin of life or intelligence and have more to do with the rarity of the rapid emergence of biological regulation of feedback cycles on planetary surfaces," says Aditya Chopra at Australia National University.

An open letter a "manifesto" of sorts, framed and singed by many of the great scientists and minds of our century --from Stephen Hawking to Frank Drake, Lord Martin Rees, to Caltech's Kip Thorne shown above-- was published this past April 2016 (and posted below), outlining the philosophical foundations that inspired the Breakthrough Starshot project and the search for the answer to the seminal question of the 21st Century: "Are we alone in the universe?"

Unknown Particle of the Material Universe --"Missed by Quantum Theory"

 

 

πρωτονιο

 


An international team of esearchers theorize that a new particle exists in a material known as tungsten ditelluride (WTe2), which the researchers liken to a "material universe" because it contains several particles, some of which exist under normal conditions in our universe and others that may exist only in these specialized types of crystals.

"Will We Need an 'Alien' Telescope to Detect Earth's Twin?"

 

 

Red-edge

 

Almost 2,000 extrasolar planets have been discovered to date and this number is constantly increasing. Yet, we still know little about these alien worlds, especially their atmospheres. The atmospheres of terrestrial exoplanets could betray the presence of life on the planet, sparking NASA’s interest in acquiring the spectra that appears as starlight shines through these planetary atmospheres. A paper by Timothy Brandt and David Spiegel, exo-planetary scientists at the Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton, details what is needed in a next generation telescope for it to be capable of detecting signatures of life in the atmospheres of alien planets.

NASA Refutes Rumors that Source of Mars' Flash of Light is Alien Life

 

NASA-Denies-Rumors-That-Curiosity-Has-Found-Alien-Life

 

Since Curiosity landed on Mars in 2012, there have been several rumors that evidence has been found of Martian life in the forms of fossils, statues and even a carved alien skull and that NASA has "covered up" the existence of alien life on the planet.
