“Niku” Backward Orbiting Planet Beyond Neptune: Did our Solar System Just Get a Little More Crowded?

August 24, 2016 2:44 pm

When astronomers noticed a strange, “new” planet suddenly appear in the outer reaches of the solar system it was perplexing enough. However, when it appeared this mysterious cosmic body was moving in a backward orbit, it made the find one of the most interesting of recent times. Not least as it would appear to go against the known laws of the universe…

A Giant Ocean Is Found within Saturn’s Moon, Enceladus!

June 24, 2016 12:50 pm

One of the consequences of the Cassini missions to Saturn and several of its moons was more confirmation that Enceladus, an ice-covered satellite of the ringed planet, is perhaps a destination of future space missions. Indications of a “giant ocean” under the thick crust of ice suggests the moon is “geologically alive”. And that means the possibility of organic life increased dramatically…

Incredible NASA Experiments Shows Largest Ever (Manmade) Fire in Space!

June 19, 2016 11:25 am

NASA conduct all manner of experiments in space, many of which hold no interest for those on Earth who don’t have an otherwise intense interest in space and the universe. However, recent experiments with fire in space, and the resulting largest ever manmade fire, is such an event that interests most of us. And what’s more, what scientists can learn about how fire acts in the vacuum of space will likely prove to be invaluable for future space exploration…

The KIC 8462852 Dimming – What Does It Mean?

June 14, 2016 10:41 am

The Kepler mission has discovered multiple stars and unknown systems in the reaches of space. One of them, though, KIC 8462852, otherwise known as Tabby’s Star or the WTF Star (yes, really!), behaves in a way unlike any others discovered in the Kepler missions. And while astronomers, professional and amateur alike, continue to monitor this mysterious star, at the moment all explanations are merely theories…

What is The Dark Side of the Moon: Why do we call it that?

June 8, 2016 9:49 am

Although we, humans, have been to the Moon several times between the late sixties and early seventies, we have only actually landed and explored one side of it. The other side, the dark side, remains for the most part a mystery to us. This, rightly or wrongly, has led to a multitude of conspiracy theories over the years. And while some may be more valid than others, the reason likely resides in the orbital nature of the Moon relative to its host planet…

The Discovery of Gravitational Waves: What Does This Mean?

March 19, 2016 4:01 pm

With the discovery and confirmation of gravitational waves existed throughout the space, it not only proves, if only in part, that Einstein was correct with his Theory of Relativity, but that the universe works completely differently that we had thought. And what’s more, if such a “step-back” were possible, it very likely “looks” a lot different to how most of us imagine…

Apollo Astronauts Hear Strange Music on the Far Side of the Moon

March 16, 2016 9:42 am 2 comments

Of all the anomalies that still fascinate and frustrate the minds, in equal measure, of scientists and space researchers alike, the incident during the Apollo 10 mission in 1969 where three astronauts all heard a strange, haunting type of music seemingly coming from the dark side of the moon. Perhaps even from the reaches of space itself. What it might have been, despite theories and potential explanations, is open to debate for some…

China and the Dark Side of the Moon: Why?

March 12, 2016 11:47 am

China’s plans to reach the dark side of the Moon have been very much public knowledge for a long time. Is this a case of them flexing their potential space muscles and venturing to a place where even the NASA astronauts haven’t been? Or might they know something about this mysterious side of our cosmic neighbor that, for the rest of us, only those in high-ranking government positions are aware of…?

Philae comet lander alien ‘cover-up’

November 24, 2015 10:52 am 2 comments

It was perhaps almost inevitable that when NASA and the European Space Agency landed on the Philae comet in late-2014, that conspiracies would surface as to their “true” intentions for their actions. Was this seemingly mundane object to all without an interest in space actually an alien craft? And might the reasons for this alleged cover-up be of concern to all of us…?

The Truth Behind Apollo 18 and the Missing Moon Rocks

December 8, 2014 11:40 am 9 comments

Officially, the Apollo 17 mission was the last to leave the Earth and venture out to the Moon. Apollo 18 and 19 were cancelled due to budget cuts – at least officially. Many would point out that those missions were already technically paid for. And some would even insist that they went ahead secretly, away from the eyes of the world. When claims of “missing moon rocks” began to intertwine within the Apollo conspiracy, it would make many re-examine the goings-on around these mysterious Apollo missions…

Why Have We Never Returned to the Moon? – The Conspiracy Discussed

May 29, 2012 9:30 am 72 comments

There are many alleged reasons for the sudden halt to the Moon missions. While officially, a drastic cut in budget was offered to the public for the sudden pulling of further missions of perhaps the greatest achievement in American history, many believed there were other reasons. Some would claim the missions were still happening, only in secret. Others, would claim there was already a presence on the Moon, and it had forced the cancellation of any further ventures there…
