ANCIENT ADVANCED CIVILIZATIONS & EXTRATERRESTRIAL MEMES: NASA Officially Declares That Mars Once Had Life - Curiosity Rover Finds Life-Forming Nitrogen On The Red Planet!

March 25, 2015 -  MARS -  Mars has given us new clues about the possibilities of past life on the planet after NASA’s Curiosity rover found nitrates embedded in its rock. The elements are known on Earth as one of the key precursors to life.

Scientists have long searched for organic carbon molecules, which are still the number one candidate for proof of life, as they are produced by living organisms here on Earth. But nitrogen is just as essential, according to NASA geochemist and team member Jennifer Stern.

"People want to follow the carbon, but in many ways nitrogen is just as important a nutrient for life," Stern told the LA Times. Most nitrogen on this planet is produced by living things. "Life runs on nitrogen as much as it runs on carbon.”

The Monday study, published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, talks of Mars harboring a special form of nitrogen conducive to microbial life, if any existed. The microbes would have been able to use the nitrogen to form key building blocks of life, such as amino acids.

Nitrogen also makes up the nucleobases that later form DNA and RNA.

Curiosity hides a wealth of onboard instruments beneath the hood to help it analyze the various dust and pebbles it finds. Its SAM (sample analysis on Mars) instrument looked at three samples found near Curiosity’s landing site: aeolian and mudstone deposits found in three separate locations close to each other – Rocknest, Cumberland and John Klein.

SAM then heated up the materials in its oven-like enclosure, analyzing the resulting vapors, which were found to contain significant amounts of nitric oxide.

"What we're detecting is nitric oxide, but we know from lab experiments that when we heat up nitrates, they break down in a predictable way," Stern said. “And that’s why we think these are nitrates.”

Mistakes could have been made if the samples weren’t sufficiently isolated from their surroundings, so the team had to account for chemical contamination to make sure nothing was adding itself to the gases. The results continued to display amounts of nitrogen significant enough for microbial life to form in the driest regions of our own home.

Although most nitrates on earth are produced by living things, scientists are still not sure what the source was on Mars. The team at NASA believes there could have been a “thermal shock,” such as a weather event or an asteroid impact that could have given rise to that particular synthesis.

Further tests will help determine “whether this process is still happening today at all,” or whether it used to happen under different climatic conditions on Mars than those that exist today, Stern said.

The new discovery should come as a welcome development to those who romanticize Mars and our search for alien life. A few days ago it was discovered that Mars One – the much lauded upcoming one-way mission to Mars – was marred in controversy and suspected of being a big lie. - RT.

EXOPOLITICAL DISCLOSURE: "We Just Could Not Explain It,... Not Hot Air Balloons,... And Not Chinese Lanterns,... " - Britain's Ministry of Defence Helicopter Chases FOUR UFOs Over Bolton!

March 25, 2015 -  BRITAIN
 - A family was outdoors enjoying a barbecue when they noticed a Ministry of Defence helicopter chasing four UFOs through the skies above the English town of Bolton.

Andrea Finney, her husband Nigel, and their son were eating outdoors when Andrea reportedly noticed the UFOs in the sky. She pointed out the strange objects, and instructed Nigel to grab a camera. After retrieving the camera, he was able to snap a few photos of the unidentified aerial objects.

He explains to UK media outlet Mirror, “Our camera does not have a good zoom on it or anything – it is just a normal camera, so we took what we could but afterwards we just could not explain it.”

The witnesses assert that the UFOs “zoomed off” shortly after, and they claim they observed a MOD helicopter in pursuit of these unidentified craft.

“We just could not explain it,” says Nigel. He continues, “They were not hot air balloons. They were not Chinese lanterns. They were just something else.”

Andrea adds, “You just had to be there to see it, it was the strangest thing I have ever seen in my life . . . I was just gobsmacked.”

The day and time of the incident is unclear. But the event definitely startled the witnesses and left them scratching their heads. - Open Minds.

Eye-witness report:
I looked up into the sky and saw this weird hole in the clouds I was driving to our local waste center when I looked up into the sky and saw this weird hole in the clouds it was what looked like a perfect circle.

I got out of my car and took a picture of it with my iPhone. I have been a pilot for over 35 years and had never seen anything like it before. I did not see the two black objects below the cloud formation until I got home and enlarged the picture on my computer. I uploaded the picture to the Weather Channel thinking some expert would comment on it and when I went back to check a few days later they had removed the picture from their site.

ANOTHER EARTH: Meet NIROSETI - The Search For Extraterrestrial Intelligence Just Got An Upgrade, New Instrument Will Scan New Realms!

Skies cleared for a successful first night for NIROSETI at Lick Observatory. The ghost image is Shelley Wright, pausing for a moment during
this long exposure as the rest of her team continued to test the new instrument inside the dome.

March 25, 2015 -  UNITED STATES - Astronomers have expanded the search for extraterrestrial intelligence into a new realm with detectors tuned to infrared light. Their new instrument has just begun to scour the sky for messages from other worlds. 

"Infrared light would be an excellent means of interstellar communication," said Shelley Wright, an Assistant Professor of Physics at the University of California, San Diego who led the development of the new instrument while at the University of Toronto's Dunlap Institute for Astronomy & Astrophysics.

Pulses from a powerful infrared laser could outshine a star, if only for a billionth of a second. Interstellar gas and dust is almost transparent to near infrared, so these signals can be seen from greater distances. It also takes less energy to send the same amount of information using infrared signals than it would with visible light.

The idea dates back decades, Wright pointed out. Charles Townes, the late UC Berkeley scientist whose contributions to the development of lasers led to a Nobel Prize, suggested the idea in a paper published in 1961.

Scientists have searched the heavens for radio signals for more than 50 years and expanded their search to the optical realm more than a decade ago. But instruments capable of capturing pulses of infrared light have only recently become available.

Shelley Wright holds a fiber tht emits infrared light for calibration of the detectors.

"We had to wait," Wright said, for technology to catch up. "I spent eight years waiting and watching as new technology emerged."

Three years ago while at the Dunlap Institute, Wright purchased newly available detectors and tested them to see if they worked well enough to deploy to a telescope. She found that they did. Jérome Maire, a Fellow at the Dunlap, "turned the screws," Wright said, playing a key role in the hands-on effort to develop the new instrument, called NIROSETI for near-infrared optical SETI.

NIROSETI will also gather more information than previous optical detectors by recording levels of light over time so that patterns can be analyzed to for potential signs of other civilizations, a record that could be revisited as new ideas about what signals extraterrestrials might send emerge.

Because infrared light penetrates farther through gas and dust than visible light, this new search will extend to stars thousands rather than merely hundreds of light years away. And the success of the Kepler Mission, which has found habitable planets orbiting stars both like and unlike our own, has prompted the new search to look for signals from a wider variety of stars.

NIROSETI has been installed at the University of California's Lick Observatory on Mt. Hamilton east of San Jose and saw first light on March 15.

Lick Observatory has been the site of several previous SETI searches including an instrument to look in the optical realm, which Wright built as an undergraduate student at UC Santa Cruz under the direction of Remington Stone, the director of operations at Lick at that time. Dan Werthimer and Richard Treffers of UC Berkeley designed that first optical instrument. All three are playing critical roles in the new search.

NIROSETI could uncover new information about the physical universe as well. "This is the first time Earthlings have looked at the universe at infrared wavelengths with nanosecond time scales," Werthimer said. "The instrument could discover new astrophysical phenomena, or perhaps answer the question of whether we are alone."

The group also includes SETI pioneer Frank Drake of the SETI Institute and UC Santa Cruz who serves as a senior advisor to both past and future projects and is an active observer at the telescope.

Drake pointed out several additional advantages to a search in this new realm. "The signals are so strong that we only need a small telescope to receive them. Smaller telescopes can offer more observational time, and that is good because we need to search many stars for a chance of success." he said. The receivers are also much more affordable that those used on radio telescopes.

"There is only one downside: the extraterrestrials would need to be transmitting their signals in our direction," Drake said, though he sees a positive side to that limitation. "If we get a signal from someone who's aiming for us, it could mean there's altruism in the universe. I like that idea. If they want to be friendly, that's who we will find."

The NIROSETI team also includes Geoffrey Marcy and Andrew Siemion from UC Berkeley; Patrick Dorval, a Dunlap undergraduate, and Elliot Meyer, a Dunlap graduate student. Shelley Wright is also a member of the Center for Astrophysics and Space Sciences at UC San Diego. Richard Treffers is now at Starman Systems. Funding for the project comes from the generous support of Bill and Susan Bloomfield. - PHYS.

 WATCH: Alien anomaly inside Space Shuttle payload?

Eye-witness report:
 I, Clark C. McClelland, former SCO, Space Shuttle Fleet, personally observed an 8 to 9 foot tall ET on my 27 inch video monitors while on duty in the Kennedy Space Center, Launch Control Center (LCC). The ET was standing upright in the Space Shuttle Payload Bay having a discussion with TWO tethered US NASA Astronauts. I also observed on my monitors, the spacecraft of the ET as it was in a stabilized, safe orbit to the rear of the Space Shuttle main engine pods. I observed this incident for about one minute and seven seconds. Plenty of time to memorize all that I was observing. IT WAS AN ET and Alien Star Ship!

To all who have faith in ME, I present you with this artists concept (See on top) of what I saw many years ago at KSC. It was a tall creature, about 8 to 9 feet tall. It had a humanoid body shape with two arms, two hands, two legs, two feet, a slim torso and a normal size head for its size. The color of its skin I could not determine. It appeared to have two what appeared to be eyes, but it was not detailed enough for any other comments.
