• Beatriz Villarroel of Stockholm University in Sweden is one of the authors of a recent study published in The Astronomical Journal about the discovery of a hundred or so blinking lights in space as well as number of vanishing and reappearing objects spotted among the stars which are puzzling researchers. According to the study paper, “The implications of finding such objects extend from traditional astrophysics fields to the more exotic searches for evidence of technologically advanced civilizations”.

• The scientists examined images of the sky dating as far back as the 1950s. They compared them with modern sky surveys looking for physical indicators including stars that apparently vanished from the Milky Way. Villarroel noted that, “Finding an actually vanishing star – or a star that appears out of nowhere would be a precious discovery and certainly would include new astrophysics beyond the one we know of today.”

• Dying stars will change very slowly to become a white dwarf, or will die with a sudden explosion as a supernova. A “failed supernova” is what happens when a very massive star collapses into a black hole without sending out any kind of explosion and vanishes. But failed supernovas are very rare. A vanishing star would likely indicate some other process entirely.

• Non-natural explanations include intelligent alien lasers for communication between stars, or a Dyson sphere which is a structure that alien civilizations build around a star to harness its energy. The scientists believe the anomalies likely originate from “natural, if somewhat extreme, astrophysical sources.”

number of vanishing and reappearing objects have been spotted among the stars are puzzling the researchers attempting to understand what they are.

Scientists believe the lights likely originate from “natural, if somewhat extreme, astrophysical sources”.

However, have yet to find any explanation after discovering one hundred of the strange lights.

Whatever scientists find it likely to change our understanding of space, with astronomers announcing the research could potentially usher in a “new astrophysics”.

The study’s authors wrote in The Astronomical Journal: “The implications of finding such objects extend from traditional astrophysics fields to the more exotic searches for evidence of technologically advanced civilisations”.

The scientists examined publicly available images of the sky dating as far back as the 1950s, such as old military sky catalogues.

They compared those historical observations with modern sky surveys looking for physical indicators including stars that apparently vanished from the Milky Way.

This University Acquired a Massive Collection of UFO Files

Listen to “E197 This University Acquired a Massive Collection of UFO Files” on Spreaker.

Article by MJ Banias                       December 10, 2019                       (vice.com)

• Science writer and researcher Chris Rutkowski is a Canadian legend. Considered Canada’s most prolific researcher and writer on UFOs and paranormal phenomena, Rutkowski has accumulated forty years’ worth of files, notes, books and zines pertaining to his research. Rutkowski told Motherboard, “I had always wondered what was going to happen to it all.”

• Then the Director of Archives at the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg, Manitoba approached Rutkowski about donating some of his collection to its library. “After discussing it more over dinner,” said Rutkowski, “I wondered out loud about the possibility of donating my entire collection. And that was that.”

• “The Director of Archives had seen me on TV talking about the Falcon Lake case,” explains Rutkowski. This infamous case occurred on May 20, 1967 when Stephen Michalak was searching for minerals along Falcon Lake, 80 miles east of Winnipeg. All of the sudden Michalak sees a 40-foot UFO land on a rock. After approaching the craft and hearing voices inside, the object emitted a hot gas out of a vent in its side, burning his stomach.

• Michalak was treated by a doctor for severe headache, vomiting, and first degree burns which formed in a grid pattern on his lower abdomen. Canadian doctors were unable to determine the cause of Michalak’s injuries and illness. So he went to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. Documents from the Mayo Clinic proves that Michalak was not suffering from mental illness or hallucinations.

• Rutkowski believes that the Falcon Lake Incident is one of the best UFO cases to date, and there’s much more documentation supporting it than Roswell and many other famous American cases. It has significant police and military documentation, physical injuries, independent lab tests from two countries, medical reports, and in-depth witness testimony. Geographically, the site of the incident is accessible and physical materials, such as a still radioactive piece of melted silver were recovered. The Canadian government admitted that it actually happened, and issued a commemorative coin to mark the 50th anniversary of the Falcon Lake Incident.

• There are well over 30,000 documents in Rutkowski’s collection. The greatest hurdle is the time and money required to digitize the archive so researchers around the world can access it. The University of Manitoba and Rutkowski have started a crowdfunding campaign to make this happen. Says Rutkowski, “I would hope that the funds will be used by researchers wishing to better understand the nature of the UFO phenomenon, whatever it may be.”

 

The frozen prairies of Canada have always been home to strange events and mysterious encounters. So it’s perhaps appropriate that the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg has just accepted a large donation of documents from a prolific UFO researcher confirming the province’s “unnatural history.”

Science writer and researcher Chris Rutkowski is a Canadian legend. Undoubtedly the country’s most prolific researcher and writer on UFOs and paranormal phenomena, Rutkowski was approached by the university’s archives and was asked to donate some of his collection to its library.

“I’ve been doing research and publishing in this field for more than 40 years. I’ve accumulated a lot of files, notes, books and zines over the decades, and I had always wondered what was going to happen to it all,” Rutkowski told Motherboard in an interview. “The Director of Archives had seen me on TV talking about the Falcon Lake case. She approached me and asked if I would consider donating the files…After discussing it more over dinner, I wondered out loud about the possibility of donating my entire collection. And that was that.”

The US Air Force’s UFO investigation program, Project Blue Book, investigated an infamous Canadian injury case which allegedly occurred on May 20, 1967, known as the Falcon Lake UFO Incident. As the story goes, Stephen Michalak was searching for minerals along Falcon Lake, 80 miles east of Winnipeg, Manitoba when a strange, 40-foot object landed on an outcropping of rock. After approaching the craft and hearing voices inside it, the object emitted a hot gas out of a vent in its side, burning Michalak’s abdomen. Michalak was examined by his doctor only a few hours after the incident and was treated for his symptoms which included severe headache, vomiting, and first degree burns which formed in a grid pattern on his lower abdomen. While Michalak’s condition temporarily improved, he did suffer from lasting effects.

Giant Chinese Telescope Joins Search for Alien Radio Signals

Listen to “E196 Giant Chinese Telescope Joins Search for Alien Radio Signals” on Spreaker.

Article by Dirk Schulze-Makuch                    December 10, 2019                         (airspacemag.com)


• After more than three years of testing, the world’s largest single-dish radio telescope—the Five Hundred-Meter Aperture Spherical Telescope, or “FAST” in southern China (pictured above) – is about to become operational. Chinese officials claim that FAST is already three times as sensitive as the Arecibo observatory in Puerto Rico, the second-largest single-dish telescope in the world.

• While the FAST trials have focused on detecting neutron stars, one of the goals during the telescope’s operational lifetime will be to search for signals from intelligent extraterrestrials. Do they exist? Are they bound by a non-interference ‘prime directive’? Many claim that UFOs and alien visitation has been covered up by the government, such as the 1947 Roswell UFO crash. Of course, this was only a high altitude balloon used by the U.S. Air Force for Project Mogul.

• In fact, 99 percent of all UFO reports can be easily explained as natural atmospheric phenomena like sprites – which produce dancing flashes of bright light when lightning is exciting the electrical field above a storm. Scientists focus their investigations on the one percent of UFO events that are stubbornly difficult to explain – not that the investigators have any evidence of aliens. But any scientific investigation has to be based on experiments and reproducibility. And when it comes to alien visitations, those standards can be difficult or impossible to apply.

• Considering that we still have no answer for the Great Silence of the elusive aliens, we have to leave open the possibility that aliens have been visiting Earth. From a practical standpoint, science may be better suited to analyzing alien artifacts or possible alien objects in space, such as the interstellar asteroid ʻOumuamua’. As our observatories improve, and better telescopes like FAST come online, we may find ourselves with many more such mysteries to solve.

[Editor’s Note]   Wow. This writer has guzzled so much of the deep state’s kool aid, he is completely mind controlled and devoid of independent thought. He accepts without question that the Roswell crash was a weather balloon. He believes that 99 percent of all UFO sightings are mere atmospheric phenomenon. It is hard to take anyone with such cognitive dissonance seriously. Hopefully, Chinese astronomers won’t be as hampered by deep state propaganda as are the hapless scientists in America. Humanity will welcome the truth for a change, regardless of where it comes from.

 

The world’s largest single-dish radio telescope—the Five Hundred-Meter Aperture Spherical Telescope (FAST) in southern China—is about to start operation after more than three years of testing and commissioning. While the trials have focused on detecting neutron stars, one of the goals during the telescope’s operational lifetime will be to search for signals generated by intelligent extraterrestrials. Since Chinese officials claim that FAST is already three times as sensitive as the Arecibo observatory in Puerto Rico, the second-largest single-dish telescope in the world, we surely expect new discoveries.

We don’t know, of course, whether the giant telescope will detect signs of extraterrestrial technology. But we’d love to have an explanation for what’s been called the Great Silence, also known as the Fermi Paradox: If there is intelligent life out there, why don’t we see any evidence of it?
There are many possible answers, including the idea that we live in a kind of designated nature preserve, or zoo. Or, if you like Star Trek, maybe the aliens are applying their version of the prime directive and trying not to interfere with life on Earth.

When I was in New Mexico recently for a workshop on extant life on Mars, I also visited the International UFO Museum and Research Center in Roswell. While the museum did have some interesting exhibits, including artwork and depictions of aliens in science fiction movies, its focus on the famous 1947 Roswell UFO incident seemed to suggest a government cover-up of an alien visitation. Never mind that the Roswell event likely has a much more mundane explanation: the crash of a high altitude balloon like the ones used by the U.S. Air Force for Project Mogul.
