NASA Brings Scientists & Theologians Together To Prepare World For Extraterrestrial Contact

NASA Brings Scientists & Theologians Together To Prepare World For Extraterrestrial Contact
A couple of months ago top US astronomers gathered in front of Congress to let them know that extraterrestrial life exists – without question. They cited the sheer size of the universe as their most important proof, emphasizing that there are trillions of stars out there, with one in every five most likely harbouring an Earth-like planet (though it is important to keep in mind that planets do not have to be “Earth-like” in order to harbour life). You can read more about that story here. “The number of habitable worlds in our galaxy is certainly in the tens of billions, minimum, and we haven’t even talked about the moons. And the number of galaxies we can see, other than our own, is about 100 billion.” – Seth Shostak, Senior Astronomer at California’s SETI Institute (source) “We’re looking at all scenarios about finding life. One of the theologians present was Brother Guy Consolmagno, who is the new president of the Vatican Observatory Foundation. Here’s one of them: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.

Evaluating NASA’s Futuristic EM Drive April 29, 2015 by José Rodal, Ph.D, Jeremiah Mullikin and Noel Munson - subedited by Chris Gebhardt A group at NASA’s Johnson Space Center has successfully tested an electromagnetic (EM) propulsion drive in a vacuum – a major breakthrough for a multi-year international effort comprising several competing research teams. Thrust measurements of the EM Drive defy classical physics’ expectations that such a closed (microwave) cavity should be unusable for space propulsion because of the law of conservation of momentum. EM Drive: Last summer, NASA Eagleworks – an advanced propulsion research group led by Dr. Harold “Sonny” White at the Johnson Space Center (JSC) – made waves throughout the scientific and technical communities when the group presented their test results on July 28-30, 2014, at the 50th AIAA/ASME/SAE/ASEE Joint Propulsion Conference in Cleveland, Ohio. However, in 2010, Prof. In 2014, Prof. Dr. In Dr. The tests reported by Dr. Applications: Moving out from LEO, Mr. Mr. Dr.

untitled Is Your Religion Ready To Meet ET? How will humankind react after astronomers hand over rock-solid scientific evidence for the existence of life beyond the Earth? No more speculating. No more wondering. The moment scientists announce this discovery, everything will change. Not least of all, our philosophies and religions will need to incorporate the new information. Searching For Signs Of Life Astronomers have now identified thousands of planets in orbit around other stars. Having already found the physical planets, astronomers are now searching for our biological neighbors. And it’s very likely that astronomers will find it. Astronomers filter that light from far away through spectrometers – high-tech prisms that tease the light apart into its many distinct wavelengths. What is our place in the universe? If We Aren’t Alone, Who Are We? An affirmative answer to the question “Does life exist anywhere else in the universe beyond Earth?” Extrasolar Sinners?

The last time anyone took a photograph from above low Earth orbit that showed an entire hemisphere (one side of a globe) was in 1972 during Apollo 17. I was happy with it but had no idea how widespread it would become. We have since updated the base maps by increasing the resolution and, for 2004, we made a series of monthly maps. What was your best day or the best thing that ever happened to you at Goddard? The summer of 2007, I bought one of the first iPhones.

Proof That the Human Body is a Projection of Consciousness Brandon West, ContributorWaking Times In this article we will explore how your body is a holographic projection of your consciousness, and how you directly influence that hologram and thus have complete control over the physical health of your body. We will also specifically explore the exact mechanism behind this principle, and don’t worry, I will provide scientific evidence so let your rational mind be at ease. But first … how is this even possible? Human Thought Determines Reality One of the key principles of quantum physics is that our thoughts determine reality. For example: electrons under the same conditions would sometimes act like particles, and then at other times they would switch to acting like waves (formless energy), because it was completely dependent on what the observer expected was going to happen. The quantum world is waiting for us to make a decision so that it knows how to behave. A dramatic example of this is the case of Vittorio Michelli. He continues: Fantastic?

Professor debunks theories of skeleton’s alien origins Alien and UFO enthusiasts were left disappointed again last month, as Professor of Microbiology and Immunology Garry Nolan Ph.D. ’89 P.D. ’89 debunked theories of extraterrestrial origins surrounding a skeleton found in Chile’s Atacama Desert and instead identified it as a humanoid. The skeleton was featured prominently in the recent documentary “Sirius,” produced by Steven Greer, founder of the Center for the Study of Extraterrestrial Intelligence and the Disclosure Project. The film is based on Greer’s efforts to reveal government cover-ups of UFO sightings and extraterrestrial encounters. Nolan was given the opportunity to examine the skeleton after contacting the makers of “Sirius.” The producers agreed to send Nolan pictures of the figure, which Nolan described as “pretty spectacular,” after he offered to provide genomics tools that could examine the skeleton’s DNA. “I wouldn’t enter this and at the first sign of humanity throw everything out,” Nolan said.

SpaceX to fly tourists to the Moon NEXT YEAR opening up route to WORLD | Science | News Planned for late 2018, the unnamed pair have already paid a “significant deposit” for the mission according to SpaceX CEO Elon Musk. And they will travel aboard the private company’s Crew Dragon capsule which is set for its first unmanned test flight this year. Mr Musk claimed the co-operation of NASA had made the plan possible, adding the two passengers "will travel faster and further into the solar system than any before them". The CEO said: "This presents an opportunity for humans to return to deep space for the first time in 45 years.” But he declined to comment on the identity of the two individuals who approached the company last year, only saying that they knew each other and that it’s “nobody from Hollywood”. He added: "Like the Apollo astronauts before them, these individuals will travel into space carrying the hopes and dreams of all humankind, driven by the universal human spirit of exploration. He added: “We’re doing everything we can to minimise that risk, but it’s not zero.

Will ET Be Here Soon? NASA Brings Scientists, Theologians Together To Prepare Looking for extraterrestrial life is akin to a search for a cosmic needle-in-a-haystack, as evidenced by the above incredible Hubble Space Telescope image showing approximately 10,000 galaxies. In large part, thanks to NASA's Kepler spacecraft, more than 1,400 planets have been identified beyond Earth. A few days ago, NASA tried closing the gap between life on Earth and the possibilities of life elsewhere. The space agency and the Library of Congress (image below left) brought together scientists, historians, philosophers and theologians from around the world for a two-day symposium, "Preparing For Discovery." Their agenda: To explore how we prepare for the inevitable discovery of extraterrestrial life, be it simple microbial organisms or intelligent beings. "We're looking at all scenarios about finding life. "People just consider it much more likely now that we're going to find something -- probably microbes first and maybe intelligence later," he added. Those are big numbers to ponder.

Lunar Eclipses and Solar Eclipses :: NASA Space Place An eclipse happens when a planet or a moon gets in the way of the sun’s light. Here on Earth, we can experience two kinds of eclipses: solar eclipses and lunar eclipses. What’s the difference? A solar eclipse happens when the moon gets in the way of the sun’s light and casts its shadow on Earth. This total eclipse happens about every year and a half somewhere on Earth. Note: This diagram is not to scale. In this picture, the moon is covering up the sun in the middle of the day. But not everyone experiences every solar eclipse. On average, the same spot on Earth only gets to see a solar eclipse for a few minutes about every 375 years! Caution! Never look directly at the Sun, even for a second! To view a solar eclipse, use special solar viewing glasses. During a lunar eclipse, Earth gets in the way of the sun’s light hitting the moon. The moon can also look reddish because Earth’s atmosphere absorbs the other colors while it bends some sunlight toward the moon.

55 Rare Photographs of David Bowie You May Not Have Seen Before The legendary rock icon passed away after a long battle with cancer; these rare photographs of David Bowie were taken from the late 1960s to the 1980s you may not have seen before... Fermi's paradox: does the lack of contact from extraterrestrials have implications for human survival? -Low impact living info, training, products & services “Where is everybody?” Enrico Fermi is supposed to have asked in 1950 of his colleagues at the Los Alamos National Laboratory. Working from first principles, Fermi calculated that extraterrestrials should have visited the Earth long ago, and many times over; the absence of any evidence to suggest that they have done so presents therefore the basis of the paradox that now bears Fermi’s name. Fermi was neither the first nor the last to raise this puzzling question, and a decade after the famous lunchtime conversation at Los Alamos, Frank Drake formulated an equation to stimulate discussion of the chances that SETI (the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) would discover radio communicative civilisations on other worlds. More importantly you might be thinking, what on Earth has this subject got to do with Lowimpact.org? It might just be though, that intelligent life, again of an intelligence close enough to ours to be recognisable, has a tendency to destroy itself.

NASA Confesses to Dosing Americans with Air-borne Lithium and Other Chemicals | Chemtrails In Our Skies There’s the official explanation for why NASA is spraying lithium, a pharmaceutical drug most often used to treat people with manic depression or bi-polar disorder, into our ionosphere, and then there is the probable reason(s). It would be easier to accept NASA’s official explanation if they were not so secretive about everything they study and do in space – but one thing is for certain – NASA’s own personnel have admitted that lithium, along with other chemicals, are intentionally being placed into our environment regularly. It is possible that many of NASA’s own employees aren’t even aware of the true motivations for carrying out such a project, ironically displaying the very behaviors that these chemicals/pharmaceuticals are meant to instill. In the first bomb-shell video a NASA employee (Douglas.e.rowland@nasa.gov) admits that lithium is being sprayed in the atmosphere, and says that it is “harmless to the environment.” Of course, we can’t ignore the USA.

Michael Jackson, George Michael, Prince and more: readers share their favourite albums turning 30 | Music This week marks 30 years since Michael Jackson’s Bad album confirmed the King of Pop as one of the most successful artists of all time. But Jackson was not the only artist to produce a classic 1987 album. Both the Beastie Boys and Public Enemy enjoyed successful hip-hop breakthroughs, Bruce Springsteen released his ultimate break-up album, and the Morrissey/Marr partnership managed one last hurrah before consigning the Smiths to history. To celebrate these releases, we asked readers to name their favourite albums from 1987 and explain why they still matter 30 years on. Michael Jackson – Bad It was an album worthy of breaking all records. Prince – Sign o’ the Times This album has got it all – synth-drums, funk, psychedelia, rock and mainstream pop, combined and curated in the idiosyncratic, slick and multifaceted style that only Prince had. Fleetwod Mac – Tango in the Night Nothing was going to reach the heights of Rumours, but I believe this album is underrated. Whitney Houston – Whitney
