Elements Of Life In Space? Rosetta Probe Discovers Organic Molecules On Comet

A report in the Wall Street Journal said that the German agency behind the Rosetta mission was currently analyzing the findings of the Rosetta probe’s analytic data of the comet’s atmosphere. The initial findings, though, indicated that the Philae lander had, in fact, detected organic compounds within the comet’s atmosphere.

Does Our Universe Bear the Scars of a Collision with Another Universe?

Though many physicists believe it’s possible that our universe is one of many in a multiverse, they struggle to find concrete evidence to back up that hypothesis. But now, we may find that evidence — if we look for the wreckage left behind by a collision of cosmic proportions.

Comet Lander Re-establishes Radio Contact with Earth and Sends Data From Surface

The Philae lander on the distant comet 67P re-established radio contact with Earth on Friday night, downlinking yet another stream of science data. Everything expected from the little probe was delivered, just before low battery power dropped it into standby mode.

Report: Parallel Universes Exist and Interact With Each Other

Report: Parallel Universes Exist and Interact With Each Other

Griffith University (in Australia) academics are challenging the foundations of quantum science with a radical new theory based on interactions between parallel universes. In a paper published in the prestigious journal Physical Review X, Professor Howard Wiseman and Dr Michael Hall from Griffith’s Centre for Quantum Dynamics, and Dr Dirk-Andre Deckert from the University of California, take interacting parallel worlds out of the realm of science fiction and into that of hard science. The team proposes that parallel universes really exist, and that they interact. That is, rather than evolving independently, nearby worlds influence one another by a subtle force of repulsion. They show that such an interaction could explain everything that is bizarre about quantum mechanics.

Ron Paul: What The Elections Really Mean For Peace and Liberty

Ron Paul: Did the election last week really mean that much? Actually, the change in control of the Senate from Democrat to Republican means very little, despite efforts by politicians and the mainstream media to convince us otherwise. Yes, power shifted. But the philosophy on Capitol Hill changed very little. The warfare/welfare state is still alive and well in Washington.

Astronomers Solve Puzzle About Bizarre Object At The Center Of Our Galaxy

A team led by Andrea Ghez, professor of physics and astronomy in the UCLA College, determined that G2 is most likely a pair ofbinary stars that had been orbiting the black hole in tandem and merged together into an extremely large star, cloaked in gas and dust—its movements choreographed by the black hole’s powerful gravitational field. The research is published today in the journalAstrophysical Journal Letters.

Rosetta’s Mission to Comet 67P Could Change Science Forever

Human beings around the world may be witnessing one of the most significant dramas in the modern history of the space sciences. The ESA’s Rosetta mission to the comet 67P has shattered the theoretical predictions of standard comet science. For many decades, we were told that comets are dirty snowballs, which formed billions of years ago, tracing back to the solar system’s origins. In contrast, the electric universe has stated for decades that comets, meteors and asteroids are materials excavated electrically from planetary surfaces. Wal Thornhill explains that the Rosetta mission has already provided a stunning confirmation of the electric comet theory.

NASA Is Studying How to Mine the Moon for Water

Space agency scientists are developing two separate mission concepts to assess, and learn how to exploit, stores of water ice on the moon and other lunar resources. The projects — called Lunar Flashlight and the Resource Prospector Mission — are notionally targeted to blast off in 2017 and 2018, respectively, and aim to help humanity extend its footprint out into the solar system.

Hungry Black Hole Eats Faster Than Thought Possible

Astronomers have discovered a black hole that is consuming gas from a nearby star 10 times faster than previously thought possible. The black hole — known as P13 — lies on the outskirts of the galaxy NGC7793 about 12 million light years from Earth and is ingesting a weight equivalent to 100 billion billion hot dogs every minute.
