Recently, we’ve been taking a real liking to the amateur images that you find a lot online – the ones that apparently show a UFO or otherwise otherworldly object flying around in space. Many of them are obviously nonsense but sometimes you come along one that makes the eyebrows raise and the heart rate jump.
It offers a fairly different and extensive system that changes the usual protocols of discussing UFO interaction and videos, as it tends to come from some form of image shooting that’s complete with amateur commentary, and free of ridiculous editing and grandiose artistic elements.
One video that recently caught our eye came from YouTube as part of the findings of [...]
We try and break down the reasons why the famous KIC 8462852 star may be changing, and the background to the overall star itself.
For many years now, Tabby’s Star – or KIC 8462852 – has been relatively well-known by the public. Its other name, the WTF Star, drew lots of comical appreciation at the time, but outside of its comical name this is a very important discovery. As part of a project in 2015 known as “Planet Hunters” a group of astrologers were looking to see why some very particular light fluctuations were occurring from this.
At the time of writing, this is the only star that was found within the Kepler mission that was monitored to act in such a manner. [...]
Look around the web enough, and you should find it fairly easy to find a story from an ‘ex-NASA’ employee or someone else of high-up authority breaking news and giving insight into events. However, sometimes these people come across with information that is so explosive, so exciting, that it creates a massive wave of excitement across the web.
One person who has managed to do this as the moment, is James Oberg. Oberg worked at NASA Mission Control in the 1990s. After his time with NASA he moved into becoming a space historian and regularly contributes to journalistic work on the subject.
The thing that makes Mr. Oberg so exciting to us, though, is that he has a lot of [...]
Recent scientific discoveries have shown a rather horrifying trend – that the infamous Black Plague was spawned by just one strain or plague bacterium.
Over the course of recent history, it’s been suggested on more than one occasion that the Black Plague, one of the worst pandemics of all-time, was perhaps caused by something innocuous. People always put this theory down to pure conjecture – as if something so horrible could be formed by just one condition. However, it would appear that this theory was right all along – according to Cell Press, just one single strain of the plague bacterium across Europe was responsible for the creation of the Black Plague!
Over the last few years, frustrated IT staff have spent their afternoons banging their heads against the desk.
“No, it’s not an actual cloud…” they repeat, time and time again, as they explain to clients about the power of cloud technology.
Just in case you are new to the world of cloud technology, this is a fancy name for storing large amounts of data which is accessible from multiple locations on a specific server. It’s called “the cloud” to most people, but in reality it’s for all intents and purposes a private location on the web that stores all your data.
It’s revolutionized the business world as important information, template documents and shared media can [...]
Usually, when we hear of a specific scientific breakthrough – especially in astronomy – we prepare ourselves for things being quite slow, and taking a while to heat up. With the recent Lisa Pathfinder satellite, though, things moved a whole lot quicker than expected!
The idea of this mission was to test out what kind of hardware would be needed for gravitational waves to be discovered in space.
The satellite was sent up into the sky to be used as a tester for a laser measurement system that could, in the future, be used on observatories. Rather than the usual slow burning approach, though, the satellite started to exceed expected performance parameters on the first day [...]
For longer than many of us have been involved or interested in politics, Hillary Clinton has been on the scene. She’s one of the most divisive figures in US – and probably global – political history.
To some, she’s the symbol of a greater future for the United States; one where they let women run things, where they can finally progress beyond the white, middle-aged dominance that the nation has seen for so long.
Indeed, many of her supporters see her as the true path to fixing the United States – to showing everyone that there is a chance to move beyond the normal hegemony of the system that exists today.
Over the years, the term “Dark Side of the Moon” has been utilized in many different formats. It’s been part of movie sagas, books, music and popular culture. It is a magnificent section of science and astrology, and it even plays a pretty major role in many different conspiracy theories.
From the housing zone to an alien species to a manmade Dark Side of the Moon that contains a hyper-intelligent and superbly advanced variety of the human race, the Dark Side of the Moon has long been something worth discussing.
The problem is, most people don’t really know why it seems to be called this. Today, we’re going to take a brief look at the term itself, what it actually [...]
All over the world, we have access to stories, myths and legends that on the surface would absolutely blow the minds of people if they were true. From the Chupacabra to various other stories involving supernatural beings, human mythology has been filled up over the years with plenty of candidates who would, on any given night we met them, break our minds!
One of the most popular myths and stories over the years, though, has been that of The Mothman.
Now, a man who is part Moth would not be that big a deal, right? After all, moths are puny!
However, it’s the actual story behind what (potentially) makes up the [...]
Look around the Internet enough and you can find it quite easy to come up with crazy videos and mental looking conspiracies from all across the globe. From the David Icke school of thought that we’re run by a trans-dimensional group of aliens to the conspiracies about murders and espionage that are rife in modern society, it’s very easy to look around and find a conspiracy on just about anything.
One of the most common themes, though, comes in the form of leaks from ex-officials, insiders and various other connected individuals. As you might imagine, those inside leaks can cover a wide range of things from military plans to, in this case, alien activity.
As part of [...]
Take a look around your home, and have a quick calculation of all the different products and systems that you make use of. How many appliances do you have in your home? How many of them need some form of electrical power to make them run? You will find that, without the use of electricity, your home would be a whole lot less cluttered.
You’d not be able to read the article, for one!
However, the truth is that the vast majority of the products that we use today are electrical based, with good reason. Electricity is a form of manipulation and powering our appliances and inventions that is controlled and utterly capable of being managed. Whatever you’re views on the way [...]
Every now and then, you hear some unique – and rather challenging – theories about how the world “really” works. From us all being a virtual reality to the world being flat, you can look around and find something that supports just about any world view.
One of the most unique answers we have come across in some time for a theory, though, is known as the Phantom Time Hypothesis and it is, without doubt, one of the strangest but most exciting hypothesis we have heard in some time. It’s about as crazy as you’re likely to get!
In this article we’ll start to take an interest in what the hypothesis is, some of the most convincing evidence around it, and anything else [...]
Look around the web long enough and you shouldn’t have many problems finding the various stories over the years about massive human skeletons being found. There’s more than one, but the most recent discovery – found in Australia at 5.3m tall – is one of the most impressive yet. With many people happy to believe in the story of giant men in the form of various myths and ideas over the years, this is just yet another point to add to the list of credible evidence that there was, at one stage, humans much larger than our current forms walking this Earth.
However, not everything is as it might seem when you read articles about the latest discoveries – especially when you turn to [...]
Last month marked the two year anniversary of the MH370 plane disappearance. Ever since that time, there’s been intense global interest in what actually occurred, especially as stories have come out since the event occurred to offer some kind of explanation.The Disappearance
After making voice contact with Air Traffic Control over the South China Sea shortly before an hour after taking off, the aircraft soon came out of range of the Malaysian radar and was never picked back up again.
After a massive search effort began across the SC Sea and also the Gulf of Thailand – the place of its last surveillance radar sighting – nothing was found.
Early analysis told us [...]
For readers of a certain vintage, the conspiracy theory we’re about to discuss might bring back a nice bout of nostalgia. After all, this was one of the biggest early theories of the 1960s and is, without a doubt, one of the most insane conspiracy theories we’ve ever come across.
One thing we notice quite a lot after the death of a celebrity are theories that they aren’t “really” dead – the idea that they all live on this magical island that nobody else can locate apart from dead celebrities.
From Tupac to Michael Jackson, every famous celebrity and musician seems to spend their time living away from the rest of the world, free from our expressions and love of their [...]
