Alien Life May exist on Giant Super-Earth 30 Trillion Miles From Home

• Astrophysicists at Villanova University have published a new paper suggesting that the planet that orbits Barnard’s Star– known as Barnard b – could have the potential for extraterrestrial life if water exists on the planet. At 30 trillion miles from Earth, Barnard’s Star is the second closest red dwarf star to our solar system after Proxima Centauri. The planet, Barnard b, was discovered in November 2018.

• The Villanova University astrophysicists are holding out hope the newly discovered planet may also harbor oceans. “Geothermal heating could support “life zones” under its surface, akin to subsurface lakes found in Antarctica,” said Edward Guinan, who with co-author Scott Engle presented the findings at the American Astronomy Society (AAS) in Seattle on January 10th.

• “The most significant aspect of the discovery of Barnard’s star b is that the two nearest star systems to the Sun are now known to host planets. This supports previous studies based on Kepler Mission data, inferring that planets can be very common throughout the galaxy, even numbering in the tens of billions,” said Engle. “The universe has been producing Earth-size planets far longer than we, or even the Sun itself, have existed.”

[Editor’s Note]   Just as significant is the confirmation that “geothermal heating could support “life zones” under its surface, akin to subsurface lakes found in Antarctica.” This supports the concept that there exist geothermal pockets under the ice on Antarctica capable of harboring Nazi bases that were only accessible by submarine, where the Nazi elite escaped at the end of World War II to build its secret space program.

 

E.T. might actually be out there, scientists have said in a shocking new development. He just might live on a planet 30 trillion miles from Earth, though.

A new paper published by astrophysicists at Villanova University suggests that the planet that orbits Barnard’s Star – known as Barnard b – could have the potential for extraterrestrial life if water exists on the planet. That’s due to the possibility of geothermal heating, which could create an ocean for primitive life.
“Geothermal heating could support “life zones” under its surface, akin to subsurface lakes found in Antarctica,” said Edward Guinan.

The temperature on Barnard B is similar to Jupiter’s moon, Europa, at roughly 238 degrees below zero, but given the likely presence of oceans on the Jupiter lunar satellite, the astrophysicists are holding out hope the newly discovered planet may also harbor oceans.

“We note that the surface temperature on Jupiter’s icy moon Europa is similar to Barnard b but, because of tidal heating, Europa probably has liquid oceans under its icy surface,” Guinan added in the statement.
For comparison purposes, rubber freezes below -98 °F / -72 °C and human blood freezes between -2°C and -3°C.
Guinan, who worked on the paper alongside Scott Engle, presented the findings at the American Astronomy Society (AAS) in Seattle on Thursday.

CIA Files Reveal Shocking Fate Faced by KGB Soldiers on Encountering UFO

by Nirmal Narayanan                November 28, 2018              (ibtimes.co.in)

• Declassified CIA files have revealed the fate of a group of Soviet-era KGB soldiers when they encountered a UFO during the peak of the cold war. While stationed at a military base in Antarctic, Soviet KGB soldiers witnessed a grouping of red, green and yellow UFOs hovering over the base. Later, a low-flying saucer-shaped spaceship appeared over the Soviet military base. Somebody impulsively shot down saucer with a surface-to-air missile.

• The Saucer-shaped UFO fell to Earth and five short humanoids with large heads and large black eyes emerged from it. The five humanoid creatures came close together and then merged into a single spherical shaped object. That object began to buzz and hiss sharply and then became a brilliant white. In a few seconds, the sphere grew bigger and flared up with an extremely bright light. At that very instant, 23 soldiers who were watching the phenomenon turned into limestone. Two of the soldiers escaped the attack. The stone soldiers were taken to a secret Soviet military base.

• Conspiracy theorists argue that this incident is proof of alien existence, and that the aliens’ advanced weaponry is able to transform the material composition of living beings.

• In the declassified documents, former USSR President Mikhail Gorbachev himself revealed that UFOs do exist, and that a thorough investigation is needed to unravel the mysteries surrounding these flying objects.

 

KGB was once the most powerful security agencies in the world, and they played a crucial role in turning the Soviet Union into an unquestionable world power until its break up in 1991. Now, a set of declassified CIA files has revealed the shocking fate faced by a bunch of KGB soldiers when they encountered a UFO during the peak time of cold war.

It should be noted that these documents which were actually dissolved by USSR President Mikhail Gorbachev in 1991 were later obtained by the CIA, and it has unveiled a scenario where science fiction came to real life. In the documents, Gorbachev himself reveals that UFOs do exist, and thorough investigation is needed to unravel the mysteries surrounding these flying objects.

The development first began when a group of red, green and yellow flying objects was seen hovering above military bases in Antarctica. Later, a team of KGB soldiers spotted a flying saucer, and they shot it down.

“According to the KGB materials, a quite low-flying spaceship in the shape of a saucer appeared above a military unit that was conducting routine training maneuvers. For unknown reasons, somebody unexpectedly launched a surface-to-air missile and hit the UFO. It fell to Earth not far away, and five short humanoids with ‘large heads and large black eyes’ emerged from it,” the declassified document says, Dailystar reports.

As the UFO crash landed, five creatures, possibly aliens with large heads and big eyes came out and launched an attack on the soldiers. During the attack, aliens used highly advanced weapons, and they soon turned these soldiers to stone poles.

NASA Blasts Off Space Laser Satellite to Track Ice Loss

September 15, 2018                   (afp.com)

• On September 15th, NASA launched its most advanced space laser satellite on a three-year mission to track ice loss around the world and improve forecasts of sea level rise as the climate warms. The $1 billion, half-ton, ICESat-2 satellite was launched aboard a Delta II rocket from Vandenberg Air Force base in California. This will follow-up the original ICESat mission that lasted from 2003 to 2009.

• The first ICESat revealed that sea ice was thinning, and ice cover was disappearing from coastal areas in Greenland and Antarctica. In the intervening nine years, an aircraft mission called Operation IceBridge, has flown over the Arctic and Antarctic, taking height measurements of the changing ice.

• “The mission will gather enough data to estimate the annual elevation change in the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets even if it’s as slight as four millimeters – the width of a No. 2 pencil,” NASA said in a statement. The new space laser will fire 10,000 times per second, compared to the original ICESat which fired 40 times a second, with measurements taken every 2.3 feet (0.7 meters) along the satellite’s path.

• The space laser will have the ability to monitor the changes taking place within the ice. This will improve NASA’s knowledge of areas such as the deep interior of Antarctica, which is “one such area of mystery,” said Tom Wagner, cryosphere program scientist at NASA.

[Editor’s Note]   I wonder what else they intend to monitor with their new space laser under the ice sheets of Antarctica? See Dr Michael Salla’s book: Antarctica’s Hidden History: Corporate Foundations of Secret Space Programs, and recent article, “More Scientists Confirm Volcanoes Rapidly Melting Antarctica’s Ice Sheets”.

 

NASA’s most advanced space laser satellite blasted off Saturday on a mission to track ice loss around the world and improve forecasts of sea level rise as the climate warms.

Cloaked in pre-dawn darkness, the $1 billion, half-ton ICESat-2 launched aboard a Delta II rocket from Vandenberg Air Force base in California at 6:02 am (1302 GMT).

“Three, two one, liftoff!” said a launch commentator on NASA television.

“Lifting ICESat-2 on a quest to explore the polar ice sheets of our constantly changing home planet.”

The launch marks the first time in nearly a decade that NASA has had a tool in orbit to measure ice sheet surface elevation across the globe.

The preceding mission, ICESat, launched in 2003 and ended in 2009.

The first ICESat revealed that sea ice was thinning, and ice cover was disappearing from coastal areas in Greenland and Antarctica.

In the intervening nine years, an aircraft mission called Operation IceBridge, has flown over the Arctic and Antarctic, taking height measurements of the changing ice.

But a view from space — especially with the latest technology — should be far more precise.
