An Object That Just Passed Earth Was So Strange Scientists Are Testing It for Alien Life

The asteroid, named ‘Oumuamua, was the first object from another star system to be detected by the human race and stunned scientists with its shape — it is ten times longer than it is wide — and its color, a dark red hue caused by millions of years of exposure to radiation. The Breakthrough Listen initiative will spend $100 million to test ‘Oumuamua for radio signals. Scientists say that though it is highly unlikely, the unusual characteristics of the asteroid fit the bill of a giant interstellar probe or spaceship.

10 More Crazy Conspiracy Theories That Became Conspiracy Facts

10 More Crazy Conspiracy Theories That Became Conspiracy Facts

Generally speaking, conspiracy theories form where there is a vacuum of verifiable facts associated with a controversial, usually tragic event. The concept has evolved over the years and is a part of our popular culture. There are legions of conspiracy theorists and “truthers” who have devoted their lives to certain theories, and there are legions of skeptics who have devoted their lives to debunking those theories. All the while, conspiracy theories of every stripe and variety festoon the footnotes of history.

Time Crystals Are Real – And What They Can Do Might Change Everything

Time crystals are an entirely new state of matter that can repeat their atomic structure in time and maintain oscillation without energy. This has major implications for the still-nascent field of quantum supercomputing, which many see as the next generation of computers.

Elon Musk’s Plan to Save Humanity from the Artificial Intelligence Apocalypse

Elon Musk envisions a world in which humans are outfitted with micro-sized “neural lace” technology. When it reaches its full potential, the effects will be nothing short of mind-blowing. We will be able to control physical objects with our thoughts, have conversations between minds with no words, and literally live other people’s experiences, including all forms of physical activity.

Geophysicists: Earth’s Magnetic Poles Could Be About to Flip

Evidence suggests to scientists that the next magnetic field reversal — which is long overdue — could be closer than expected, though the timeframe for that in geological terms is still in thousand-year increments. The poles flipping would not likely portend the apocalypse, but there would be significant global consequences.

Amazon’s New Robot-Run Supermarket Will Phase Out Human Employees

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos wants his automated grocery store to feature a ground level where shoppers can touch and physically select items — typical food products that people like to touch, beer, fruit, etc. On the second floor, a small army of robots toils away, where they furiously bag items for the customers browsing below. This is another example of how automation’s already rapid encroachment on the human job market has gone into overdrive.

Researchers on the Verge of Creating Artificial Intelligence/Human Hybrids

Citing “neuroprosthetics” like cochlear implants, Bryan Johnson of Braintree envisions BCI (brain-computer interface), a synergistic relationship between the central nervous system and external computing devices. A brain-computer interface, in the context of advanced transhumanism and taken to its logical conclusion, is AI/human hybrids.

Astronomers Think They Have Just Discovered Messages Sent from Aliens

The newest strange signals hail from a gaggle of some 234 stars identified by the Sloan Digital Sky Survey. E.F. Borra and E. Trottier, the two astronomers who discovered the anomalies, discussed them in their paper, which was originally titled “Signals probably from Extraterrestrial Intelligence.”
