Can Human’s Detect Earth’s Magnetic Fields?

A researcher in US has begun experiments to study human’s ability to detect the Earth’s magnetic fields. Geophysicist Joe Kirschvink from the California Institute of Technology based his hypothesis on how birds, insects, and some mammals seem to be able to use this sense to migrate and orient themselves with the world around them. Although Kirschvink has so far only presented the results of a very small trial involving 24 participants, he says that he has not only been able to identify it in humans for the first time, but that his results can be repeated and verified. Some scientists believe that the...

NASA Extends Hubble Space Telescope Program And Streams Live Teleconference

As NASA promises to extend the science operations for its Hubble Space Telescope for an additional five years, tomorrow, they plan to not only provide a live stream of a major ground test at 10:05 a.m. EDT but will follow it up with a live media teleconference at 11 a.m. to discuss their initial assessment of the previous tests. NASA just confirmed a contract extension of $2.03 billion dollars, to cover the work necessary to continue the science program of the Hubble mission by the Space Telescope Science Institute until June 30th 2021. Hubble is expected to continue to provide valuable data...

Human Teleportation To Become A Reality

The Russian federal government has just announced plans to invest 2.1 trillion dollars into a a two-year ‘National Technology Initiative’ and now scientists are preparing to introduce teleportation into our reality. In 2014, a Dutch group proved they could transfer the properties of one atom to another, teleporting’ the information over a distance of three meters, whilst other groups have used particles of light to transfer information over distances of over 62 miles, now Russian scientists hope to have developed the technology to transport humans by 2035. Alexander Galitsky, a prominent investor in the country’s technology sector said “It sounds fantastical...

Nano-Satellites To Be Launched Into Orbit By 2018

Virgin Galactic founder Richard Branson, may see his vision of launching nano-satellites into orbit by 2018 Sky and Space Global has announced signing a letter of intent with Virgin Galactic to use its vehicle LauncherOne to launch up to 200 nano-satellites into space within the next two years. Richard Branson, had previously committed to developing a commercial satellite-launching program, with LauncherOne, which launches from a Boeing 747, already in “advanced testing” and Sky and Space Global CEO Meir Moalem has said “Virgin Galactic is a truly global company with significant resources and support, and this agreement is the first step in what...

Dark Thirty Radio Exclusive – Results From The Alien Cosmic Expo

The response from last weekends Alien Cosmic Expo has received an overwhelming response. Space enthusiasts from New Zealand, South Africa, and the United States were in attendance during the 3 day event that was held in Brantford, Ontario, which focused on one of the most significant events in Canadian UFO history. The first ever Canadian National Public Inquiry into UFOs was held, which covered UFO sighting reports, amazing government documents and Clinton’s remarks to release the US X-Files, to name only a few talking points. Several UFO experts presented their case in support of the UFO reality, the existence of extraterrestrials and...

NASA To Advance Bioengineering In A Big Way

NASA, in partnership with the nonprofit Methuselah Foundation’s New Organ Alliance, has announced a new competition with a $500,000 prize to be divided among the first three teams that successfully create thick, metabolically functional human vascularized organ tissue in a controlled laboratory environment, in an effort to advance the field of bioengineering. Steve Jurczyk, associate administrator for NASA’s Space Technology Mission Directorate in Washington said “The outcome of this challenge has the potential to revolutionize healthcare on Earth, and could become part of an important set of tools used to minimize the negative effects of deep space on our future explorers.” The vascularized, thick-tissue...

New Mineral Discovery On Mars Forces Scientists To Reevaluate Its History

NASA’s Mars Science Laboratory rover, Curiosity, has detected significant amounts of a silica mineral called tridymite on the surface of Mars and the discovery has scientists stunned. This surprising find may now force scientists to rethink the volcanic history of Mars, as this new evidence suggests that the planet may have in fact once had explosive volcanoes that led to the presence of the mineral. NASA planetary scientist at Johnson and lead author of the paper, Richard Morris explains “On Earth, tridymite is formed at high temperatures in an explosive process called silicic volcanism. Mount St. Helens, the active volcano in Washington State,...

Wind Nebula Discovered Around Rare Ultra-Magnetic Neutron Star, A First

For the first time ever, astronomers have discovered a vast cloud of high-energy particles called a wind nebula around a rare ultra-magnetic neutron star. A neutron star is the crushed core of a massive star that ran out of fuel, collapsed under its own weight, and exploded as a supernova, which are the strongest magnets in the universe. After reviewing the discovery of a newly found nebula which surrounds a magnetar known as Swift J1834.9-0846, a team researcher George Younes, a postdoctoral researcher at George Washington University in Washington found an unusual lopsided glow about 15 light-years across centered on the magnetar.  ...

SETI Attempts To Spy On At Least 3 Exoplanets

Alien hunters and astronomers alike are now turning to the Allen Telescope Array (ATA) located in California in the hope of detecting an artificial radio signal. Headed by members of the SETI Institute, astronomers will target a star system relatively close to Earth, specifically focusing on Trappist 1, a red dwarf-type star that hosts to at least 3 exoplanets. The ATA has been used to “listen in” on star systems that NASA’s Kepler Space Telescope and other exoplanet-hunting missions have confirmed the presence of exoplanets, allowing Kepler to identify the size and orbit of each exoplanet. Astronomers can then determine if that planet is located in...

Trials For Gene Editing Experiments Seeking Approval

Next week, the University of Pennsylvania will seek approval for the first human trials of CRISPR, deploying the gene editing tool to treat certain types of cancer. CRISPR, shorthand for Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats, is a means of editing genomes with greater precision and efficiency than any other methods, by utilizing a naturally occurring bacterial defense mechanism that can be programmed to target specific segments of genetic code and edit the DNA. Though it holds major potential for preventing HIV infection, curing genetic diseases and even creating designer babies, the University of Pennsylvania believes it is ready to trial their CRISPR...

The Secrets Of Tabby’s Star To Be Solved

  Since the discovery of Tabby’s star, late last year, potential explanations including comets, distortion, and space debris have been offered but with lack of scientific evidence, none have been confirmed. Now, a crowdfunding campaign has met its goal in raising over $100,000, which will be used to support a year-long study into KIC 8462852, analyzing the star’s luminosity with the Las Cumbres Observatory Global Telescope Network.   Started by Yale astronomer Tabby Boyajian last month, the kickstarter was created in an attempt to get the answers to this mysterious “alien megastructure” and hope to identify if the star is engulfed by an artificial...

UFO Sightings Now Confirmed By Officials As Being On The Rise

    There were numerous sightings from around the world this weekend of what all witnesses are claiming were UFO’s, which confirms new beliefs that UFO sighting are on the increase.   The first story comes to us from Peru, where a man uploaded to YouTube shows footage of members of a broadcast team, specializing in UFOs react to not one but two UFO’s appear and disappear in the immediate vicinity of each other. Moments later, they were able to see the UFO again, allowing for the opportunity to record it and capture greater details on the supposed craft, which apparently...
