Abandoned in space in 1967, a US satellite has started transmitting again
After learning that a satellite that’s been silent for decades has suddenly started sending out new signals you may, of course, suspect that the device has been hijacked by aliens now trying to communicate with Earth. Perhaps they’re warning us that they are planning an invasion! It’s possible such thoughts ran through the mind of […]

4 Decades Ago, NASA Transmitted a Message Into Space: 27 Years Later, Something Responded
In the middle of the 1970’s, Carl Sagan and his peer colleagues transmitted a broadcast known as the Arecibo message into outer space using radio waves. The 1974 landmark was a special ceremony to commemorate the remodeling of a radio telescope in Puerto Rico known as the Arecibo. This transmission was the most powerful broadcast of energy […]

Evidence of “Planet Nine” Found in Mysterious Deep Space Object

Evidence of “Planet Nine” Found in Mysterious Deep Space Object
Chalk it up to the conspiracy theorist in me, but sometimes I think NASA removed Pluto’s distinction as a planet so they wouldn’t have to say they’ve found proof of “Planet X.” It sounds less threatening to say “Planet Nine,” especially when there’s recent news of more evidence for a large, mysterious planet at the far edge […]

Why These Scientists Fear Contact With Space Aliens
The more we learn about the cosmos, the more it seems possible that we are not alone. The entire galaxy is teeming with worlds, and we’re getting better at listening — so the question, “Is there anybody out there?” is one we may be able to answer soon. But do we really want to know? […]

We just beamed a signal at space aliens. Was that a bad idea?
In a valley eight miles southeast of the Norwegian city of Tromsø, a radar antenna has just transmitted a short bit of radio programming to potential alien listeners: some specially composed electronic music and a tutorial about geometry and the use of binary numbers. This isn’t the usual approach to the search for extraterrestrial intelligence (SETI). Ordinarily, […]

Simple math shows how many space aliens may be out there
If you say you believe space aliens exist, I doubt your friends will be shocked. In a universe aglow with 2 trillion galaxies, you’d be supremely smug to think that Earth alone hosts clever creatures. One 2015 poll showed that 54 percent of Americans feel confident that intelligent aliens are out there. Maybe that optimism comes […]

Astronaut’s DNA No Longer Matches His Identical Twin’s After Year Spent in Space, NASA Finds
Spending a year in space not only changes your outlook, it transforms your gene expression. Preliminary results from NASA’s Twins Study reveal that 7% of astronaut Scott Kelly’s genetic expression — how his genes function within cells — did not return to baseline after his return to Earth two years ago. The study looks at what happened to Kelly […]
