The first Fast Radio Burst was detected in 2001 with at least twenty other bursts being reported since then. The Fast Radio Bursts (FRB), as they have been dubbed, only last milliseconds and until recently were thought to be completely random making them very difficult to detect and study.
In 1974 Carl Sagan sent a message into space in the form of radio waves beamed into space. It was the most powerful broadcast ever deliberately beamed into space and was directed at a star cluster nearly 25,000 light years away. The message consisted of a picture depicting our planets location in our solar system, our mathematical system, a simple shape of our body, an example of our DNA double helix structure, and a crude drawing of how we broadcast the message.
A few weeks ago I was in a discussion with a friend who tried to use the SOS from another galaxy as a means of defending E.T. civilizations and their stance that they must be out there. While I agree they are out there, I wanted to investigate the SOS signal more to see if the SOS from another galaxy is legitimate and should be used as an argument to support a stance. So what is the SOS from another galaxy?
Launched on June 18, 2009 along with the Lunar Crater Observation and Sensing Satellite (LCROSS) the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) was the first United States mission tot he moon in over ten years. The “official” purpose of the LRO was to create a 3D map of the Moon’s surface with 100-meter resolution and 98.2% coverage. Additionally, to put Moon landing hoax theories to rest they were taking 0.5-meter resolution images on the Apollo landing sites.
You have all heard about and possibly even seen pictures about structures, tracks, pyramids, and other oddities on the surface of the moon and the evidence keeps stacking up. With the advent of Google Moon, more satellites from other countries taking passes and hi-res photos, and the Chinese lander we are starting to see more of the moon than ever before and the evidence says our moon is not what we think it is.
Our favorite star is at it again, KIC 8462852, also known as Tabby’s Star. For those of you who do not know about Tabby’s Star, it is a star that does not act like other stars. Tabby’s Star has been showing strange patterns in brightness since its discovery. The star has strange dips in light which was initially thought to have been a planetary system, however the light dips are far too deep for that. Others theorize that it is a massive cloud of gas or even comets, however that has now been ruled out as well.
