EXTRATERRESTRIAL MEMES: Scientists Make Astonishing Discovery Of 'Ghost Particle' In Earth's Atmosphere - Is It Proof Of Alien Life?!

January 25, 2015 -  SPACE
 - A group of astrobiologists at the Universities of Sheffield and Buckingham have released the image of the specter-looking particle to the Daily Express. The particle, which is 10 microns in width or approximately as thick as a single strand of human hair, resembles a wisp of smoke or a chiffon scarf, earning for it the nickname ghost particle.

Prof. Milton Wainwright of the University of Sheffield speculates that the ghost particle is a "living balloon" that once carried alien organisms. He also believes that the particle, which appears to be in its "deflated" state, could be inflated by these organisms using gases that are lighter than air to allow it to float in air or seas of unknown environments.

"This is nothing short of a New Year's present from outer space," Wainwright says.

In a paper published in the Journal of Cosmology, Wainwright and his colleagues say the ghost particle is actually the cell wall (frustule) of a type of microscopic algae called diatom. In July last year, the researchers sent balloons 14 to 17 miles (22 to 27 kilometers) into the Earth's atmosphere to collect samples of particles in the stratosphere. The ghost particle, the researchers believe, may have been delivered by a comet.

"Most people will assume that these biological particles must have just drifted up to the stratosphere from Earth, but it is generally accepted that a particle of the size found cannot be lifted from Earth to heights of, for example, 27 kilometers," says Wainwright. "The only known exception is by a violent volcanic eruption, none of which occurred within three years of the sampling trip."

Skeptics, however, exist. Seth Shostak, astronomer at the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence in Mountain View, California, says the idea that life is distributed throughout the universe by being transported by objects such as comets, a notion called panspermia, is credible, at least over short distances, such as in solar systems. Shostak, however, says Wainwright's claims will have to stand up to scrutiny by the wider scientific community.

"In the past, most members of the astrobiology community have found it easier to ascribe these claims to terrestrial contamination than to extraterrestrial hitchhikers," Shostak says. "It remains to be seen whether that opinion will be changed by these new results."

However, Wainwright insists that the ghost particle, which is made up of carbon and oxygen, did not originate from the Earth. He says the particle appeared on the sampling stub in "absolutely pristine condition" with no traces of contamination by Earth particles, such as pollen, grass, or pollution particles. He also points to the impact craters the particles made on the sampling stub as further proof of their space origin.

Astrobiologist Chris McKay of the Ames Research Center of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is looking for more proof than that. Although he says it is likely the researchers discovered "curious stuff" in the atmosphere, he still subscribes to the Carl Sagan principle that "extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof."

One example of extraordinary proof McKay is looking for could be a biochemical indication that the ghost particle does not share biochemistry with life on Earth.

"If they were able to show that it was composed of all D amino acids (proteins in Earth life are made of L amino acids), that would be pretty convincing to me," McKay says.

Wainwright says he and his team are planning to conduct further studies on the ghost particle, such as finding the ratios of various isotopes, or the varieties of elements with different neutron numbers in the atomic nuclei. If the ratio of isotopes gives a certain number, the particle is from space; if it gives another, it is from Earth.

Last year, Russian scientists announced that they discovered traces of diatomic plankton on the surface and illuminators of the International Space Station (ISS). Although NASA dismissed the report, Russian ISS orbital mission chief Vladimir Solovyev said that it was the first time plankton was discovered in space. However, it isn't clear up to now how the particles have appeared on the ISS. - Tech Times.

CONSPIRACY: Life On Mars Or Mars Landing Hoax - NASA's Curiosity Rover Photo "Shows" Human "Non-Terrestrial Officer" Performing Maintenance On Mars?!

January 25, 2015 -  MARS
 - Going by the claims of a UFO researcher, we might have obtained the first photographic “evidence” of hacker Gary McKinnon’s claim that he found “fleet-to-fleet” cargo transfer records relating to the ET technology-based “off-world” space operations of U.S. “Non-Terrestrial Officers.” Many in the “Truth movement” have believed Mars to be the “off-world” base of Pentagon’s “Non-Terrestrial Officers.”

According to an unnamed researcher who contacted UFO Sightings Daily’s Scot Warring, the NASA image shown below could be “evidence” backing McKinnon’s story.

Is This A NASA Engineer Pictured Performing Maintenance On Curiosity Rover?

We would recall that McKinnon was the hacker who was accused in 2002 of perpetrating, at his girlfriend’s aunt’s house in London, what was described then as the “biggest military computer hack of all times.”

The U.S. government accused him of hacking into nearly 100 military and NASA computer networks between February 2001 and March 2002, and shutting them down temporarily. But McKinnon later told reporters that he was looking for evidence of secret U.S. government records about UFOs and ET technologies that could prove beneficial to humanity but were being suppressed.

McKinnon claimed in an interview with Wired that he discovered files documenting the existence of up to 30 “non-extraterrestrial officers,” including information relating to their ranks. He also found records dealing with spaceship-to-spaceship cargo transfers of secret deep space missions.
“I knew that governments suppressed antigravity, UFO-related technologies, free energy or what they call zero-point energy… I also got access to Excel spreadsheets. One was titled ‘Non-Terrestrial Officers.’ It contained names and ranks of U.S. Air Force personnel who are not registered anywhere else. It also contained information about ship-to-ship transfers, but I’ve never seen the names of these ships noted anywhere else.”
Below is an excerpt from a 2005 Guardian interview with Mckinnon.
“‘What was the most exciting thing you saw?’ I ask.

‘I found a list of officers’ names,’ he claims, ‘under the heading “Non-Terrestrial Officers.”‘

‘Non-Terrestrial Officers?’I say.

‘Yeah, I looked it up,’ says Gary, ‘and it’s nowhere. It doesn’t mean little green men. What I think it means is not earth-based. I found a list of ‘fleet-to-fleet transfers,’ and a list of ship names. I looked them up. They weren’t US navy ships. What I saw made me believe they have some kind of spaceship, off-planet.’

‘The Americans have a secret spaceship?’ I ask.

‘That’s what this trickle of evidence has led me to believe.’

‘Some kind of other Mir that nobody knows about?’

‘I guess so,’ says Gary.

‘What were the ship names?’

‘I can’t remember,’ says Gary. ‘I was smoking a lot of dope at the time. Not good for the intellect.'”

The photo providing “new evidence” of the existence of McKinnon’s so-called “Non-Terrestrial Officers” manning “off-world” mission bases is one of a set of Curiosity rover Navcam photos from NASA’s JPL website taken on Sol 50, (2012-09-26 13:59:04 UTC), UFO Sightings Daily reports.

A Human Technician Performing Maintenance On The Rover?

“Non-Terrestrial Officer” Photographed On Mars?

“This came in the email this morning. Someone who wants to remain nameless has found a shadow of a human-like being messing with the Mars Curiosity rover. The person has no helmet and their short hair is visible and in high detail. The person has on air tanks on their back and a suit that covers most of the body except the hair.”
The photo shows what the researcher believes is a human-like being in a spacesuit fitted with an air-tank on his back. But, curiously, he is not wearing a spacesuit headgear and his short hair is visible.

The fact that other photos of the set showing the same view of the rover do not show the human-like figure suggests that the shape is not part of the rover, according to Mars anomaly researchers.

Mars anomaly researchers are debating what the non-terrestrial officer was doing with NASA’s extraterrestrial buggy. He appears to be leaning over it performing maintenance – so we could guess is he is an engineer or a technician.

The “researchers” are also debating other possibilities. Some have suggested that the human-like figure is an alien engineer examining NASA’s space buggy. But for those who have seen the 1978 thriller movie Capricorn One, the photo immediately suggests another possibility: That the entire Mars landing was faked and that Curiosity rover is on Earth.

In the movie Capricorn One, NASA officials discovered too late a fault in the Mars mission life-support system. Unable to continue with the mission, yet unable to announce cancellation of the mission out of fear of losing funding, the officials decided to stage a “Mars landing” from an Earth-based studio. - Inquisitr.

NASA Developing Helicopter That Could Scout for Future Mars Rovers


NASA engineers are working on a small helicopter that could "scout" a trail for future Mars rovers.

The low-flying Mars helicopter would fly ahead of the rover almost every day, checking out various possible points of interest and helping engineers back on Earth plan the best driving route, the US space agency said in a statement.

The proposed helicopter could potentially triple the distance these vehicles currently drive in a Martian day and deliver a new level of visual information for choosing which sites to explore.

Scientists could also use the helicopter images to look for features for the rover to study in further detail.

Another part of the helicopter's job would be to check out the best places for the rover to collect key samples and rocks for a cache, which a next-generation rover could pick up later.

The vehicle is envisioned to weigh one kg and measure 1.1 metres across from the tip of one blade to the other.

The prototype body looks like a medium-size cubic tissue box.

Till date, each NASA rover has delivered a wealth of information about the history and composition of the Red Planet but a rover's vision is limited by the view of on board cameras, and images from spacecraft orbiting Mars are the only other clues to where to drive it.

To have a better sense of where to go and what's worth studying on Mars, it could be useful to have a low-flying scout.

The current design is a proof-of-concept technology demonstration that has been tested at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, California. - NDTV.

UFO SIGHTINGS: Latest MUFON Cases Across The Globe - Copper Colored UFO Photographed Over Potrero Hidalgo, Mexico; Soundless Cigar UFO Moves Over Maine; Dark Disc In Dome Cloud Captured During Flight From London To Dublin; Roswell Triangle UFO Hovers 25 Feet Off Ground; And UFO Above Southeast Texas Beach!

January 25, 2015 -  EARTH - The following constitutes several of the latest reports of UFO sightings, courtesy of the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON).

Copper Colored UFO photographed over Potrero Hidalgo, Mexico

MUFON case 62893:

Eye-witness Report:

I was walking in the mountains of Potrero Hidalgo. It was approximately 3:30 pm, and stopped to take pictures from the nature.

At about 6:00 pm I was looking at all the pictures, in one picture at first glance, I saw a dark spot, but zooming in I saw it was a copper colored object.

I clarify that I did not see the approaching object, because the eye was not perceptible, and I did not realized I had captured something and it made no sound. I took the photo on September 2007.

Soundless Cigar UFO Moves Over Maine

A cigar-shaped UFO was moving across the sky at approximately the speed of an airplane starting at 4:38 pm on 17th of January 2015, as reported by a Maine witness at Bangor.

Riding in a vehicle with her husband driving, the witness saw the mysterious flying object heading towards them.

According to the reporting witness, she looked out the car window to her right and spotted what looked like at first a long, metallic blimp going down at tremendous speed near them. Reportedly moving as fast as an airplane, the UFO didn’t make any noise at all.

Terrified by what she had seen, she pointed out the unusual aerial object to her husband. She described the strange thing similar to a blimp structurally but long and narrow enough to be regarded as a cigar-shaped UFO.

The reporting witness tried to search online to know if there are planes resembled the UFO, and she also asked her father, who has been a pilot and an amateur astronomer.

The witness said that a half-scale model of an airship was the closest thing that would resemble the UFO, but this airship has not been flown yet and still being constructed as far as her knowledge is concerned. She also noted the flashing red and white lights at the tail of the craft on her report to MUFON.

The witness observed the object until it flew out of sight. She said that what puzzled her most were the speed and complete silence as it flew upwards and quickly out of sight. She claimed that she also saw a flying saucer once several years ago and said she was happy for the second time around because she has a fellow witness to a mysterious event.

This testimony can be accessed in Case 62745 in the witness reporting database of Mutual UFO Network.

Dark Disc in Dome Cloud captured during flight from London to Dublin

MUFON case 62801:

Eye-witness Report:
On 17/1/2015 at approx 10 am while on a flight from London UK to Dublin Ireland I noticed a bright object out of the window. It seemed to be stationary. I had already taken several pictures with my Smartphone as I had a window seat, so I took a picture and then several more of the clouds.

After looking at the pictures I noticed a dome shaped cloud with a solid disc shaped object part sticking out of the cloud.

This object is dark in color and many times bigger than the glowing orb that can be seen in two pictures.

The object in the cloud can be seen in three pictures. All at different distances but when using zoom a large dark disc is easily seen.

Roswell triangle UFO hovers 25 feet off ground

The object was only about 50-60 feet off the ground when it stopped in mid flight, about 40 feet to the north of the road, hovered up about 20 feet and then it
lowered itself to about 25 feet off the ground and just hung there. Pictured: Downtown Roswell, NM. (Credit: Wikimedia Commons)

A New Mexico witness near Roswell reported watching a slow moving, triangle-shaped UFO that stopped and hovered “50 to 60 feet off of the ground,” according to testimony in Case 62824 from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.

The witness was driving an RV on a road trip and was just a few miles outside of Roswell when the object was first seen on December 27, 2014.

“At first glance it looked like a black bar flying through the sky,” the witness stated. “It was traveling from the south heading north at a slow rate of speed.”

As the witness got closer to the object they could see that it was flying very low.

“As we got closer to the object it flew over the highway we were traveling on, and it was only about 50-60 feet off the ground. Then it just stopped mid flight, about 40 feet to the north of the road, hovered up about 20 feet and then it lowered itself to about 25 feet off the ground and just hung there.”

The witness got a good look at the unknown object.

“That’s when I could tell that it was actually triangular in shape and the top and bottom of the object appeared to be giving off a lot of heat.”

The witness tried to alert family members inside the RV.

“I began shouting to my family in the RV, asking, ‘Is anyone else seeing this?’ My sister was sitting directly behind me and she was able to look out the window and that’s when she also saw the object. She became a bit hysterical and began to scream.”

The witness stated that he was in shock looking at the object.

“I totally forgot I had a camera strapped around my neck, and by the time I had gotten it turned on, we lost sight of the object and there were no windows in the back of the RV that had a clear line of sight on the object. So unfortunately, I was unable to get a photo of it. The whole thing lasted only a minute or so, but it was by far the strangest thing I have ever witnessed.”

Roswell is a city in, and the county seat of, Chaves County in the southeastern quarter of the state of New Mexico, population 48,411, and is well known for the 1947 Roswell UFO incident, even though the crash site of the UFO was some 75 miles from Roswell and closer to Corona.

UFO Above Southeast Texas Beach

A man asserts that he photographed a hovering UFO on the night of December 11, 2014 above Crystal Beach in southeast Texas.

The witness, who identified himself as Larry Nash, noticed a bright object in the sky while working at a construction facility in Crystal Beach. Nash reportedly not alone to observe the once in a lifetime event as his co-workers also spotted the same thing.

Local media outlet Beaumont Enterprise reported that the witness described the thing up there as round to the naked eye and like a giant bubble.

Nash also said that the alleged UFO has a metallic appearance. He reportedly used the camera of his phone to get a photo of the unusual aerial object. He further asserted that the UFO changed between green and purple in color. However, his sighting was not justified by the image he got from his phone’s camera as it does not show the changing colors.

The witness claimed that he continued observing the UFO for around 45 minutes before they got instruction to get back to work.

Based on his photo, some believe that Nash just caught on camera an atmospheric phenomenon known as a parhelion or sundog, which is common when sunlight shines thru ice crystals in the air. However, Nash is clueless what he and his co-workers had seen. He reportedly tried to approach UFO enthusiasts to help him identify the mysterious aerial thing in the sky, but he has not been successful so far.

EXTRATERRESTRIAL MEMES: "The Visit" - Faux Documentary Depicts Encounter With Intelligent Aliens!

(Credit: Magic Hour Films)

January 25, 2015 -  HOLLYWOOD
 - A new fictional movie explores the event of first contact with an intelligent extraterrestrial under the guise of a documentary film.

The Visit
presents this first contact scenario in a very authentic manner, attempting to depict the real issues to be addressed during such an event. The film’s documentary format provides an extremely realistic element to the situation that helps create this authentic feel.

Perhaps the film’s greatest realistic element is the use of real people who might actually be the ones to deal with a first-contact situation. Scientists, military personnel, and government officials, including Mazlan Othman, director of the U.N. Office for Outer Space Affairs, appear in this film.

 The movie’s official description states:
Earth may not have been visited by aliens, but ever since the invention of radio and television, humans have been sending signals into outer space, announcing their existence to other civilizations, so the question is not ‘what if’ it happens, but rather ‘when’. With unprecedented access to everyone from the Director of the United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs to experts from NASA, ISU (International Space University), the SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) Institute, and military advisors, the film builds up a chillingly believable scenario of first contact on Earth, beginning with the simplest of questions: Why are you here? How do you think? What do you see in humans that we don’t see in ourselves?
Although some firmly believe that extraterrestrials are already visiting Earth, and have for thousands of years, the official word is that first contact has yet to happen. So, The Visit takes this scenario and looks at various issues that would arise, ranging from government reaction to cultural impact.

The film’s director, Michael Madsen, explains, “In case of such a visit we would at the very least be confronted with fundamental, unexplored, and perhaps even unthinkable questions about ourselves, and our place in the universe. My focus is the exploration of our likely reactions and precautions, as well as the consequences and implications of such an Alien encounter.”

The Visit premieres on January 28 at the Sundance Film Festival.
