Scientists Want To Search The Moon For Aliens

We all know that the moon is a lifeless barren rock incapable of supporting life. Humanity gave up on the ideas of intelligent life living on the moon shortly after we figured out it wasn’t made of green cheese. But now scientists at Arizona State University think we may have overlooked something, and are urging SETI to search old photos and records of the lunar surface for signs of extraterrestrials.

Their point as outlined in this paper is that after decades of observation scientists now have huge databases of records detailing not just the moon but the sky around the Earth. The believe that if intelligent life does exist in the universe, there’s a chance it may have sent a probe to our region of the galaxy. If they did, they’re hoping there might be some sign of it in the existing records and photos they already have.

In particular they think the database of photos taken by the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter is a good place to start. If aliens had at some point in our past arrived and attempted to observe Earth, setting up a base on the moon would have been their first move. Even if it happened hundreds or thousands of years ago, some of that evidence may still exist on the Moon’s surface.

U.S. Government Officially Responds To Accusations Of Alien Cover-ups

One of the kind of cool things the Obama administration has done since taking office is set up a means by which American citizens can get real answers to questions they have about what the government has been up to.

If you set up a petition through We The People and it gets more than 17,000 signatures, you’ll get an official response to it. So of course everyone wants to know… has the government found any evidence of extraterrestrial life?

Two such petitions were put forward and have subsequently received enough signatures to force a response from the Obama administration. So here’s their response, the official word on whether the government knows anything at all about aliens from Phil Larson of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy…



James Cameron Played The T-1000 And The Alien Queen

A lot of Hollywood directors make cameos in their film. Hitchcock was a master at working himself into his films and more recently Peter Jackson showed up in all three of his Lord of the Rings films in blink or you’ll miss it rolls. But James Cameron has a different way of working himself into his pictures: his voice.

James Cameron makes voice cameos in almost all of his films. In several of them he just voices random pilots, but in a couple of cases he gives voice to some of his most iconic characters. For instance, in Terminator 2 he voices some of the T-1000’s screams and in Aliens he’s the voice of the Alien queen.

Why Aliens Are The New Nazis, And It Isn’t Working

By now you’ve heard they’re turning the board game Battleship into a movie. There’s even a trailer. Except, instead of fighting other battleships, now it’s the story of a naval fleet fighting aliens. Watch the trailer and believe:

Why aliens? That’s the question I’ve found myself asking not only after watching this trailer, but after watching just about every science fiction movie released in the past two years. Aliens have somehow become the defacto villain for nearly every blockbuster movie being released by Hollywood. Just this year alone we’ve already seen aliens play the bad guys in Cowboys & Aliens, Attack the Block, Transformers: Dark of the Moon, Green Lantern, Thor, Super 8, Battle: Los Angeles, Mars Needs Moms, and I Am Number Four. Some might call this a science fiction boom, but I call it a cop out. In fact I’d say even the most outer spacey of these movies isn’t science fiction at all. You see…

First Ever Photo Of An Actual Alien Planet

Mankind has long dreamed of what might be out amongst the stars. We’ve written and produced volumes of material on it. Obsessed over it. Lusted after it. Yet until 2008, there wasn’t even conclusive evidence that other stars aside from our own had planets. And until today, we’d never actually seen on.

The photo below is the first ever of an alien planet. No it’s not the bright thing in the center, it’s the little dot in on the top left, orbiting it.
