ALIEN hunters believe they have spotted evidence of a large extraterrestrial on the Red Planet in what is being described as “undeniable proof” of life on Mars. Alien enthusiasts were sent into a frenzy when they spotted what they perceived to be a Martian which was defeated in battle. The strange claim comes on the back […]

In June 2019, scientists discovered something strange buried 180 miles beneath the lunar surface. While the discovery does sound eerily similar to the beginning of Stanley Kubrick’s film, 2001: A Space Odyssey, scientists have a much more scientific explanation for this particular anomaly. Instead of an alien monolith, scientists think that it is actually an estimated […]

Although we usually have a pretty good handle on all the different kinds of blips and blobs detected by our telescopes, it would be unwise to assume we’ve seen everything there is to see out there in the big, wide Universe. Case in point: a new kind of signal spotted by radio telescopes, which has […]

Fifteen-year-old Marcus Reed snapped Saturn at 4am from his back garden He used a 102mm reflector telescope and an iPhone app to spot the planet Saturn’s rings around the planet can be clearly seen in the picture A 15-year-old boy has managed to capture a picture of Saturn using a telescope in his back garden […]

Once every 53.5 days, NASA’s Juno probe screams over Jupiter’s cloud tops roughly 75 times as fast as a bullet. The spacecraft has used these high-speed flybys, called perijoves, to document the gas giant like never before since August 2016. It records the planet with radar systems, radiation detectors, magnetic and gravitational field recorders, and […]

For about four days, the radio waves would arrive at random. Then, for the next 12, nothing. Then, another four days of haphazard pulses. Followed by another 12 days of silence. The pattern—the well-defined swings from frenzy to stillness and back again—persisted like clockwork for more than a year. Dongzi Li, a doctoral student at […]

So. You want to watch the eclipse on Monday and you think that you don’t need any of those “safety” eclipse glasses. That’s a fantastic way to cause permanent damage to your eyes. Unless the Sun is completely covered by the Moon, you really shouldn’t look at it directly. Even a tiny sliver of our […]

Fans of eclipses rejoice: 2020 has several lunar eclipses and two solar eclipses coming up. The first one will be an annular solar eclipse on June 21, the day after the Summer Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere. The path of totality will go from Central Africa, through the Arabian Peninsula, India, China, Taiwan, and finally the Pacific. A partial […]

A major study conducted by the University of Nottingham suggests there could be dozens of ‘active’ alien civilisations in the Milky Way.  The study used a calculation known as the Astrobiological Copernican Limit to determine how many planets in our galaxy could be home to intelligent alien life, and it turns out we might have […]
