Russia To Build Telescope Capable of Detecting Signals Sent By Space Aliens

• Russian scientists have begun construction on a telescope that can be used to search for signals transmitted in the optical spectrum from extraterrestrial civilizations.

• Leading researcher at the Institute of Nuclear Physics at Moscow State University, Alexander Panov, said, “The main purpose of this telescope is to monitor cosmic rays. However, with this tool you can also observe bright and short optical flashes of light – the so-called optical transients. The tool can be used to search for artificial extraterrestrial signals. After all, what are bright flashes? Maybe someone sends to Earth the signals via a laser channel rather than in the radio-frequency range.” Panov noted that we now have the technology to transmit space messages in the optical spectrum through a laser system.

• According to Panov, Russia will host an international conference on the search for extraterrestrial civilizations in the near future. One of the goals of this event is to secure financing for Russia-based projects related to the search for extraterrestrial intelligence (SETI). Panov believes that fundamental changes should be made in the approach to the search for alien life. “Instead of carrying out ‘pinpointed listening’ for signals from selected stars,” said Panov, “we must set up listening stations network around the globe to detect radio signals in various parts of the spectrum coming from all corners of the universe 24 hours a day.”

 

MOSCOW Russian scientists have started construction of a telescope that can be used to search for signals from extraterrestrial civilizations if they are transmitted in the optical spectrum, Alexander Panov, a leading researcher at the Institute of Nuclear Physics at Moscow State University said in an interview with Sputnik.

“The main purpose of this telescope is to monitor cosmic rays. However, with this tool you can also observe bright and short optical flashes of light – the so-called optical transients. The tool can be used to search for artificial extraterrestrial signals. After all, what are bright flashes? Maybe someone sends to Earth the signals via a laser channel rather than in the radio-frequency range,” Panov said.

Panov added that our civilization is also capable of creating a laser system for transmitting space messages in the optical spectrum.

According to the scientist, Russia is expected to host an international conference on the search for extraterrestrial civilizations in the near future. One of the goals of this event is to secure financing for Russia-based projects related to search for extraterrestrial intelligence (SETI).

Last ‘UFO’ Sightings Reported to RAF Will Be Published Online

by Press Association 2019                       January 26, 2020                          (largsandmillportnews.com)

• When Nick Pope worked at the ‘UFO Desk’ at Britain’s Ministry of Defence (MoD) in the 1990s, “we didn’t find definitive proof of extraterrestrial visitation, but there were so many bizarre and unexplained sightings that we didn’t entirely rule it out.”

• In 2009, the Royal Air Force (RAF) determined that after more than 50 years, no UFO report received by the MoD had ever disclosed any evidence of a potential threat. So the MoD closed its UFO Desk and told the public that all of its UFO files were turned over to Britain’s National Archives, ultimately for full public disclosure.

• But a recent investigation stemming from a Freedom of Information Act filing revealed that some UFO reports had not been released. Rather than continuing to send these reports to the National Archives, the RAF/MoD has determined that it would publish all remaining UFO reports and documents on a dedicated gov.uk web page. A clearance process for these documents is currently under way, and online publication is expected to take place in the first quarter of 2020.

• From now on, any new UFO sightings by the British public will be directed to their local police force.

• So now the MoD’s official position is: “The MoD has no opinion on the existence or otherwise of extraterrestrial life and does not investigate UFO reports.”

 

The RAF took the decision to wind up its UFO unit in 2009, after concluding that in more than 50 years, no received report had ever disclosed any evidence of a potential threat.

Previously, records from the unit were given to the National Archives, often initially classified before being released after a specific number of years.

But the most recent reports received by the RAF will be placed online, the PA news agency can disclose, following a Freedom of Information Act request.

Members of the public reporting alleged UFO sightings are now directed to their local police force.

A spokesman for the RAF said that “it had been assessed that it would be better to publish these records, rather than continue sending documents to the National Archives, and so they are looking to put them on to a dedicated gov.uk web page”.

A clearance process for the documents is currently under way before publication, which is expected to take place “some time within the first quarter of 2020”.

China to Launch Mars Probe in July

January 23, 2020                (outlookindia.com)

• On January 23rd, the China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation announced that it will launch its first Mars mission probe in July 2020. The probe will land and deploy a rover on Mars.

• How to safely land on Mars is one of the biggest challenges facing the mission. A test simulation of the probe’s hovering and descending to the Mars surface in a one-third gravity environment was successfully conducted in China’s remote Hebei province in November.

• The Mars probe will be carried to Mars by the Long March-5 Y4 carrier rocket. The rocket recently completed testing on its high thrust hydrogen-oxygen engine in preparation for its final assembly. The Long March-5 rocket will carry out several missions in 2020, including the Mars probe launch and the lunar sample return.

 

Beijing, Jan 23 (IANS) China announced that it will launch its first Mars mission probe in July this year,

Long March-5 Y4 carrier rocket

China Youth Daily reported on Thursday.

This is the first time the country disclosed the launch month of its Mars exploration programme, according to the newspaper which cited sources from the China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation (CASC).

The Mars probe will be sent by the Long March-5 Y4 carrier rocket.

The Long March-5 Y4 rocket has recently completed a 100-second test for its high thrust hydrogen-oxygen engine, which is the last engine examination before the final assembly, Xinhua reported.

According to the CASC, China will send a probe to orbit and land and deploy a rover on Mars.

In 2020, the Long March-5 rocket will carry out several missions, including the Mars probe launch and the lunar sample return.
