Space

Also a very popular category after conspiracy is our space section here.  We sometimes take the focus off conspiracy and publish regular space related news such as rocket launches, asteroid landings and even black holes.

We find our readers also have an interest in space even when not in the context of a conspiracy.  Having said that, we do of course feature the conspiracy theories related to space here too.  Keep an eye on this section, we publish regularly and have begun work on sourcing more news that you will most definitely find interesting.

Might Humans Soon Be Floating In “Cloud Cities” On Venus?

October 18, 2018 5:14 pm

Right from the dawn of science-fiction, and again during the first wave of UFO popularity in the 1950s, along with Mars our other neighboring planet, Venus was seen as the obvious place where alien life would exist. And where humans would surely visit. In fact, as we will look at shortly, the Soviet space program did manage to land a probe on Venus as early as the mid-1960s. In part, it is because of the Soviet missions, as well as continued and advanced monitoring of the planet, that we know…

The Exoplanets – Alien Worlds Far Outside Our Solar System

September 13, 2018 8:35 pm

Most of us are familiar with the planets and moons in our cosmic neck of the woods. However, once outside our solar system and into the outer reaches of our galaxy, there are literally, according to Kepler data, billions of other worlds – exoplanets. And that is just within the Milky Way alone. Although we are only just beginning to discover planets in other galaxies (extragalactic planets), it is likely there are over 100 billion such galaxies in the Universe. The chances are then, in the entirety of the Universe,…

Alien Life In The Europa Jupiter System?

September 6, 2018 3:48 pm

We have examined previously the four gas giants that reside on the outer edges of our solar system, and more to the point their moons, which many scientists believe not only offer a chance for human colonization but also may already harbor alien life. One of the leading candidates for both scenarios is Europa, one of the main moons of Jupiter, the largest of all planets in our solar system. And while we will look at Europa and the potential for alien life, as well as the upcoming experiments on…

The Infinity Of Space – It’s Not Just For The Professionals!

March 27, 2018 8:37 pm

Although there are many organizations actively searching for alien life, perhaps in the driving seat is SETI and their SETI At Home program. While this is something that allows anyone and everyone with access to a computer the chance to join in the search for extra-terrestrial life, it isn’t the first time, for want of a better phrase, that amateurs have played a vital part in space exploration. This is increasingly the case in the twenty-first century with the rapid progression and availability of technology. And the fact is professional…

The Satellites Of The Gas Giants – The Key To Space Exploration?

January 9, 2018 10:01 am

While setting foot on another planet will undoubtedly be the greatest scientific achievement in the history of humanity, it is much more likely, and perhaps preferable, that the many moons (including our own) orbiting the planets of our solar system will be the first explored and perhaps even colonized. Indeed, these bases would be important launch points for travel much deeper into space. Essentially, conquering some of these cosmic satellites may prove to be critically important. Of course, as we will look at shortly, it is on some of these…

The Black Knight Satellite And Strange Anomalies In Earth’s Orbit

July 14, 2017 5:11 pm 2 comments

Although outer space undoubtedly offers an infinite stream of adventures and mysteries, the upper atmosphere and the vacuum of space immediately around our planet, is apparently rife with activity in its own right. One of the most researched and discussed sightings in this area of space is that of the Black Knight Satellite. Said by some to be a top-secret, possibly even joint US-Russian space project. Others claim it to be an extra-terrestrial “monitoring system”, left here in orbit to spy on activity on Earth from unknown reaches of space.…

NASA’s Cassini Saturn Mission May Have Found “Habitable World” Target on Enceladus

February 19, 2017 4:44 pm

For years now, NASA has been making creeping steps forward in their space progression. As other countries, such as India, continue to develop their own space programs, NASA has tried to pick up the pace. As the most influential and well-resourced space agency on the planet, though, they still share benefits over much of their competition. For example, they are running the hugely successful and exciting Cassini space mission. This mission has seen NASA return to where they were two decades ago, as part of a fly-by over the Enceladus…

The Salyut 7 Incident – Space Hallucinations, Or The Watchers?

February 3, 2017 3:07 pm 1 comment

In July 1984, on board a Soviet space station, one of the strangest sightings of cosmic phenomena occurred. The event witnessed not by a single person, but six individuals all claiming to have seen the same thing. What’s more, these events happened on two separate occasions, removing the possibility they were victims of some freak visual occurrence. According to the cosmonauts on board the Salyut 7, huge “angel-like” manifestations were present outside their craft. They were floating above the Earth and swimming through the eternal ocean of space. These humanoid…

Might Saturn Really Not Be What We Think It Is?

January 20, 2017 4:03 pm

David Icke stated, “Saturn! It isn’t what you think it is!” That statement alone hooked my curiosity and made me want to learn more about his theory. After all, if it isn’t what I think it is, what is it? While Icke’s theories are only exactly that, they are compellingly interesting if nothing else. Perhaps more importantly, they also tend to hold their own against other theories in the same field, at times even serving to endorse them. While the claims of what Saturn “really” is – Icke’s and many…

NASA to Release Information About Activity on Jupiter’s Moon

December 5, 2016 4:32 pm

Last month, NASA informed us all that they had something pretty funky going on near Jupiter. As a planet with several moons, it’s icy moon known as Europa was apparently showing some interesting findings. Having been searching underneath the surface of the moon to try and locate the source of this, NASA came across something rather awesome. Unfortunately, NASA have a habit of somewhat over-egging announcements. It was sold as something ‘surprising’ so naturally people got really excited. Had they found something that showed evidence of another species? Of sentient…

Crazy Facts About Space And The Universe That You Might Not Know

October 2, 2016 5:53 pm 1 comment

If the complete and definitive knowledge of space and the universe were a book that was one-hundred pages long, then what we currently know would arguably take up the first page of the introduction – maybe. And even what we do know we don’t fully understand. The more we discover about the universe, the more questions seem to crop up. Here are just some of the crazy facts about space that are completely true and proven, if a little hard to get our head around. And who knows? What we…

If Mars One Goes Ahead, Will It Open A Can Of Worms Of Secret Missions Of The Red Planet?

September 17, 2016 12:15 pm

For several years there have been plans, both by NASA and private companies, to achieve a manned mission to Mars. Of the privately funded proposed missions, Mars One is perhaps the most interesting, if only because they are offering a one-way ticket only. The project is the brainchild of Dutch entrepreneur, Bas Lansdorp, who first made public his plans in May 2012. What’s more, a reality-type TV show documenting the mission will partly fund the out of this world exploration. A key individual who created and relaunched the Big Brother…

What Impact Will the Falcon 9 Explosion Have on the Space Community?

September 4, 2016 3:30 pm

In the last few days, the horrific incident at the Falcon 9 missile launch has been headline news. The Israeli-based satellite system, supposedly backed by Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook, was taken out. We still don’t know if something caused this to occur or if it was a man-made error, but hopefully we can find out in the near future. However, the interesting part of this incident is that it may have some pretty serious ramifications. The space industry itself has been sent into a tailspin following the explosion. Experts are now…

NASA Completes Initial Orbit of Jupiter using Juno Spacecraft

September 2, 2016 12:51 pm

The last week or so has been an interesting one in the world of space flight. With the theories emanating about alien Dyson Spheres, discussion about space has been rife as per usual. However, we finally seen a story from the big dogs that made us smile. NASA has recently completed its first journey around Jupiter via its Juno platform, calling the first fly-by a success. This was the first ever carried out close-up fly-by of the planet, and it’s an incredibly exciting step for this particular investigation. Now, the…

Has SETI Found an Extraterrestrial Signal From Deep Space?

September 1, 2016 5:14 pm

One thing we love to read about at UFO Insight is the (credible) theories about alien lifeforms. Recently, we’ve been seeing a lot of stuff in the news about aliens, and potential alien lifeforms. From the Dyson Sphere star to the discovery of ancient fossils, we seem to be moving quickly in our research. However, a recent mention from the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence really caught our eye. Otherwise known as SETI, this international science team spend their time investigating quirky signs. Well, the latest sign is one that has…
