Space - logo of Saturn.If you have an interest in UFOs and life from other planets, the chances are you also have an interest in space, the universe, and the questions and mysteries of the cosmos.

And while the claims of aliens and flying saucers are indeed exciting, and certainly no less credible, the mysteries of the stars and planets are equally captivating in their own right.

Here you will find articles looking at the planets in our solar system, as well as the ones we are discovering daily, and the ultimate question of whether “intelligent life” will ever become “known” to us here on Earth…?

High-Altitude Rockets, Satellites, And Spacecraft: The Early History Of The Space Race

First Published: November 29, 2020 - Last Updated: December 4, 2020 - Reading Time: 18 minutes

When we think of the Space Race most of us likely also think of the Cold War – a race between the United States and Soviet Union to reach the stars and explore space. The fact is, though, the origins of the space go back even further, to the rocket designs of Nazi scientists who would then continue their work on both sides of the ideological divide following the war, and taking humanity on arguably one of the greatest journeys in history…

Going to Mars: The Problems, The Mission & The Possibilities

First Published: July 4, 2020 - Last Updated: September 1, 2020 - Reading Time: 38 minutes

If there is any cosmic body other than the Moon that has fascinated humanity for thousands of years it is Mars, the red planet that is, at least to the outer regions, is our nearest planetary neighbor. Given that we have already explored the Moon, albeit only partially, it perhaps makes sense that we should also look to set foot on Mars. And there are plenty of active plans for us to do just that sooner than many of us might think…

Will Private Space Missions Shine Light On The Mars Conspiracies?

First Published: February 21, 2019 - Last Updated: September 1, 2020 - Reading Time: 11 minutes

Our nearest planetary neighbor, Mars, has intrigued humans since ancient times. And while we have yet to set our collective foot on the red planet, the day would appear to be drawing ever closer. The real question might be, will it be NASA who reach Mars first? Or will one of the increasing private companies prove to be first. And if so, what will that mean for the information available to the general public…?

Cloud Cities On Venus: Exploring Earth’s Forgotten Cosmic Neighbor!

First Published: October 18, 2018 - Last Updated: September 30, 2020 - Reading Time: 16 minutes

While we know that it would be impossible for a manned mission to our cosmic neighbor, Venus. Despite it being very similar to our own home planet, if we ever did manage to land on the surface, we would be incinerated by the inferno-like temperatures that exist there. However, scientists believe there could be a possibility that humans might be able to exist in the clouds of Venus, on huge floating cities…

The Exoplanets – Alien Worlds Far Outside Our Solar System

First Published: September 13, 2018 - Last Updated: September 1, 2020 - Reading Time: 7 minutes

If we imagine for one moment the infinite nature of the Universe, then it shouldn’t really surprise us that there are likely over 100 billion galaxies out there in the far reaches of space. And each of these galaxies themselves will likely house thousands of solar systems and planets. We are discovering new planets all the time, but some, are more interesting than others, particular those that might support life…

Alien Life In The Jupiter System And The Potential Colonization Of Europa

First Published: September 6, 2018 - Last Updated: September 1, 2020 - Reading Time: 11 minutes

Jupiter is not only the largest planet in our solar system, it a destination, or more likely its moons, in particular, Europa, is one that scientists believe will not only support life but may already do so. Plans are most definitely being made to investigate the icy moon further, and while a manned mission may be several decades away yet, once we do arrive there the discoveries will undoubtedly be historic…

Space Debris: The Urgent Problem It Presents For Space Exploration

First Published: March 28, 2018 - Last Updated: September 1, 2020 - Reading Time: 17 minutes

Most of us very likely imagine, if we were traveling in a spaceship and leaving the Earth’s atmosphere, that once we were in space were would see an eternal blackness and nothing more. However, the fact is, our planet is literally surrounded with old satellites, waste from long-past space missions, and all manner of “space debris” that is becoming an increasing problem for the future of space exploration…

SETI@Home – Donate Your Computing Power to Search for ET

First Published: March 22, 2018 - Last Updated: September 1, 2020 - Reading Time: 16 minutes 2 comments

Given the absolute vastness of space – indeed the eternity of it – the search for alien life is an infinite one. And one that will take as many people as possible assisting. The SETI@Home program gives anyone with access to a computer the chance to do exactly that – to join the search for extraterrestrial life and perhaps become part of the greatest find in human history…

Chances Are, We Really Aren’t Alone! And Science Agrees!

First Published: January 14, 2018 - Last Updated: September 1, 2020 - Reading Time: 4 minutes

Many people scoff and dismiss the idea of life existing elsewhere in the Universe without a second thought. However, the fact is, that statistically speaking, and backed up by scientific evaluation and formulae, that it would almost be an impossibility for life not to exist somewhere in the deep, infinite reaches of space. Of course, whether that life is “intelligent” or merely microbial in nature is perhaps the key question…

Space Exploration And The Moons Of The Gas Giants!

First Published: January 9, 2018 - Last Updated: September 1, 2020 - Reading Time: 12 minutes

Although the gas giants in the outer reaches of our solar system, particularly Jupiter and Saturn, have no solid surface of their own and so are unlikely to support or harbor life – at least as we know it – several of their moons may do. And what’s more, further investigation and potential manned missions to these cosmic satellites may prove to be not only key in understanding these particular moons, but will likely act as “launch points” for mission even deeper into space…

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

First Published: February 3, 2017 - Last Updated: September 1, 2020 - Reading Time: 6 minutes 2 comments

An apparent incident in July 1984, witnessed on separate occasions by several Soviet cosmonauts while on the Soviet space station, Salyut 7, is perhaps an alien encounter, if we accept it to be genuine and authentic, that drifts into areas of spirituality, with claims of “angel-like” entities floating outside the space station, and a feeling of positive well-being spreading from them to the crew…

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

First Published: October 2, 2016 - Last Updated: September 1, 2020 - Reading Time: 7 minutes 1 comment

What we know today in the twenty-first century about space and the Universe pales in comparison to what we knew only as recently as the 1970s or 1980s. And, it is most likely if inevitable, that what we know even only a decade into the future will be vastly more than we do today. The fact is, discoveries regarding space and the universe are happening every single day. And the more we learn, the more we realize how much there is left to learn…

The Truth Behind Apollo 18 and the Missing Moon Rocks

First Published: December 8, 2014 - Last Updated: September 1, 2020 - Reading Time: 11 minutes 10 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?

First Published: May 29, 2012 - Last Updated: September 1, 2020 - Reading Time: 25 minutes 76 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…
