Alien Planet Discovery: LHS 1140 b Could Be Our Next Earth!

Jul 09, 2024 • (2 Minute Read)
Recent JWST observations have provided new insights into the exoplanet LHS 1140 b, located in the habitable zone and close to Earth. The data suggest that LHS 1140 b may have a nitrogen-dominated atmosphere, ruling out hydrogen-rich compositions. This indicates a heavy, high molecular weight atmosphere, potentially making it more Earth-like. Stellar activity was also observed, influencing the interpretation of the spectra. These findings are significant in the quest to identify habitable worlds and highlight the advanced capabilities of JWST in studying distant exoplanets. Further observations are needed to confirm these results and explore the planet's potential habitability.

Decoding the Mystery: The Year-Long Quest of "A Sign in Space"

Jun 13, 2024 • (3 Minute Read) • Extraterrestrial
After a year-long effort, the multidisciplinary art project "A Sign in Space," led by SETI Artist in Residence Daniela De Paulis, has finally been decoded by an anonymous father-daughter team, "John" and "Sarah." The decoded message is an image of five amino acids in a universal molecular diagram, discovered using a Margolus reversible cellular automata. This project, which sent an encoded signal from the ESA’s ExoMars Orbiter to Earth, captivated global audiences and fostered international cooperation. Now, the public is invited to analyze and interpret the message further on the A Sign in Space Discord server.

Harvard Researchers Reveal Aliens May Be Hiding Among Us

Jun 13, 2024 • (3 Minute Read) • Alien
The cryptoterrestrial hypothesis (CTH) posits that some Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena (UAP) may be the work of intelligent beings hiding on Earth rather than extraterrestrials or human-made technology. This theory suggests these beings could live underground, underwater, or disguised as humans. The US military's recent focus on UAP has renewed interest in these phenomena, with reports of extraordinary capabilities challenging current understandings of physics. Whistleblower claims of government secrecy on alien technology and the possibility of ancient hidden civilizations add further intrigue. The CTH encourages scientific openness and humility in exploring Earth's and the universe's mysteries.

Seven Stars in Our Galaxy Might Be Surrounded by Dyson Spheres

May 20, 2024 • (2 Minute Read) • Alien
New research suggests that seven M dwarf stars in our galaxy might be surrounded by Dyson spheres, hypothetical structures built by advanced civilizations to harness stellar energy. This hypothesis stems from the detection of unusual infrared excess emissions (IEEs) from these stars, which could indicate the presence of such megastructures. While alternative explanations like dust or debris could also account for these patterns, the findings highlight promising targets for further investigation into extraterrestrial technosignatures. Follow-up studies, including spectroscopy, will be crucial to uncover the true nature of these intriguing stars.

Quotes

"There may be aliens in our Milky Way galaxy, and there are billions of other galaxies. The probability is almost certain that there is life somewhere in space."

"Aliens exist, there's no two ways about it. There are so many billions of stars out there in the universe that there must be all sorts of different forms of life."

"I believe alien life is quite common in the universe, although intelligent life is less so. Some say it has yet to appear on planet Earth."
