In Aliens We Trust

Was Oumuamua an Interstellar Craft?

Oumuamua

Last October (2017), a mysterious object entered our solar system. It was named Oumuamua or “first messenger” in Hawaiian. The object traveled didn’t travel like a regular asteroid or comet, that is, having a defined and predictable path. Rather, the cigar shaped object traveled like a knife cutting through butter or a diagonal trajectory through our solar system. Researchers aimed their telescopes and other instruments at it to see if it was emitting any sounds, signals, or energy. None were reported to the public. If Oumuamua was an alien craft, why not stop and say hi to us Earthlings? Or, perhaps we are not that interesting and too primitive for advanced alien life to stop and say hello. Nevertheless, Oumuamua most likely will not be last object that enters our solar system that causes a stir. The real question, will the next Oumuamua be the actual first messenger and stop by and introduce themselves?

The Slow Indoctrination of Humans to Alien Life

Humans are not the most hospitable beings. We do not like change and we don’t like to be surprised. We are creatures of comfort and the thoughts that we may not be alone in the universe could be an overwhelming response.

In the past decades, there has been a slow indoctrination of humans to the possibility of alien life. Hollywood has brought us dozens of movies about humans and their responses to aliens. Some of these movies show Earth being invaded by aliens, Independence Day, or humans traveling to distance stars to find aliens, or aliens live among us such as Star Trek.

What will humans do when they realize we are not alone? How will we respond? In the news there have been more and more instances of coverage such as NASA’s launch of the TESS telescope to look for livable planets, or military pilots chasing UFOs, or the search of water on Mars, or the Vatican being more accepting of alien science.

All of these are examples of humans being climatized to the realization that we are not alone. When the discovery of alien life (whether intelligent or otherwise) comes to fruition, the reaction of humans is anybody’s guess. However, don’t be surprised if humans react with a humbler and accepting approach than a fearful one.

Born Two Hundreds Years too Early…

Date: April 16, 2018

Author: Editor in Chief

Many of us look at the stars and have a yearning, itch, desire, or something totally unexplainable that makes us wish we were there. I am not talking about traveling to the moon or Mars, but beyond. Beyond into inter-stellar space where we can travel to other star systems. Stars where we may find habitable planets and possibly even intelligent life. This push or desire to travel among the stars is not new, but there are many of us who feel we were born too early. Humans cannot travel to the moon or Mars easily let alone to another system. We do not possess the technology (yet) to travel faster than light (FTL drives) or pass through a wormhole. These individuals are the same people (us included) who watch Star Trek or Stargate and wish we could be on one of those ships or pass through a wormhole. We are the same people who take the garbage late at night and see Orion’s Belt and wonder who or what is out there. We watch with curiosity about the efforts to go to Mars or the moon and wish we were further along. Mars and the moon are fine but they are here. Here in our backyard and it will take months and months to reach even Mars and we are still probably a decade away. Many of us want more, we yearn for more. We want to believe that we can reach our closes neighbor, Proxima Centauri, which is 4.22 light years away. Yet, we know in our lifetimes (unless new technology is discovered or we make contact a benevolent alien species who has FTL capability), this will not be possible. We are the ones who will continue to have a burning desire to travel the stars, but are Earth locked.

The Drake Equation Explained Video

The Drake Equation is an attempt to estimate the number of intelligent civilizations that exist in the Milky Way galaxy. Note, Earth is located in the Milky Way galaxy. It does not apply to civilizations living in other galaxies. Seven variables comprise the equation…

UFO sightings capture human imagination throughout history

Source: ABC News

For centuries, mankind has reported seeing UFOs in various parts of the world. The alleged sightings have captivated the public imagination and raised questions about life beyond our planet.

Early cave drawings, ancient texts and centuries-old paintings appear to depict or describe human contact with extraterrestrial beings and UFOS, or unidentified flying objects. For instance, the 1710 painting by Dutch artist Aert De Gelder appears to show a UFO illuminating the baptism of Jesus Christ. Read more…

Legendary Astronaut Buzz Aldrin Convinced Aliens are Real – Passes Lie Detector Test

During their way to the moon on Apollo 11, astronauts observed a L-shaped craft outside their capsule. This craft was observed following them by the astronauts. This past April, Buzz and fellow astronauts took and passed lie detector tests on this observation. In the past, Mr. Aldrin has been vocal about seeing, observing, and believing in UFOs and aliens. He is a firm believer that there is life in the Milky Way galaxy and the other billions of galaxies in the unvirse. The Drake Equation itself support this hypothesis. Given Mr. Aldrin’s legendary past and credentials, his comments should not be taken lightly.

Airline Pilots Still Face Big Stigma on Reporting UFOs

Pilot Stigma on Reporting UFOs
Pilot Stigma on Reporting UFOs

Pilots have been seeing UFOs for decades when flying. This has occured on every continent and during all phases of flight. Yet, reporting these to the FAA or even the airline itself is a big deal No pilot wants to lose their “wings” and the ability to fly. Thus, they have chosen to remain quiet. Recently, two American Airlines pilot reported seing a UFO fly over their plane at excessive speeds. Speeds not currently possible on any terrestrial aircraft. The fact that this event was even released is a big deal. Historically, this has not been the case. During flights pilots have reported seeing, followed, observed, and shaddowing by UFOs. Yet, what is reported is miniscule and what it is released is even non-existent. Pilots need to share what they see and not be shunned or fear they may lose their “wings”. This stigma has to stop.

New rocket to Mars to examine the red planet’s interior

MARS Insight Rocket
MARS Insight Rocket

NASA will be sending a rocket called the Insight to study the interior of Mars. The launch is scheduled for May 5. Plans are to place a seismic sensors on the planet to detect quake activity and soil analysis. What they will find is anyone’s guess. Mars appears to be a dead planet but much may lie beneath the surface? Does life exist below the surface? This is an answer that needs to be answered.

NASA looking for Aliens with new telescope

NASA TESS Telescope

NASA seeks to explore the universe for signs of alien life. What it may mind is anyone’s guess. The TESS is telescope is already more powerful than the Hubble telescope which is nearing its endlife. TESS will work by analying the “transit” or pathways of planets as they pass by their suns. This will produce a deflection in light which may be evident of a planet. Determing if a planet exists may be the easy part, but determining if the planet(s) are in the “Goldilocks” zone is another story. As a reminder, any planets found are probably hundreds or thousands of light years away. Getting there to verify is another issue entirely.
