Why Have We Stopped Seeing UFOs In The Skies?

One late evening in 1981, lying sleepless in my student bedsit at the top of a house in Manchester, I became aware of a pattern of bright flashing lights on the wall. All I could see through the curtainless window on the opposite side of the room was a strip of rather cloudy night sky. The vivid flashing was coming from within, or perhaps behind, a bank of cloud. As I continued to watch, an object materialised from within the cloud, advancing until it stood in plain view in the night sky.

Scientists Claim Meteorite Fragments Contain Alien Biological Fossils

A paper came out of Cardiff University today claiming to have found algae fossils in samples of a meteorite that landed in Sri Lanka last December. At first glance, the claims are stunning: proof that life exists throughout the universe. But, sadly, the claims are also deeply flawed.

Did Russell Crowe Spot A UFO?

Actor, sports-fan and Oscar-winner, Russell Crowe has a long list of cinematic credits, and now you can add a guest spot on the real-life X-Files as one of them as the actor claims he has video evidence of a UFO flying over Sydney.

Vint Cerf Dreams Of An Internet That Connects Humans To Aliens

If it weren’t for the fact that Vint Cerf was the grandaddy of the internet, people might be pointing and laughing at him. In a TED discussion panel last night, about how technology is being used to communicate with animals, Cerf spoke freely about an internet that connects humans with animals and aliens.

This Is How Aliens Will Read Our First Space Greeting Card

In a very distant future an alien spaceship will come across one of the Voyager spacecrafts. And when they do, they will find two things: a golden disc — a space-proof metal version of a normal vinyl record containing sounds, music and images from Earth — and a a record player.

Alien Versus Predator: Who Has The Most Disgusting Organs?

At first glance, you’d say it’s a close race, but for me, the HR Giger-inspired xenomorph comes out ahead, if only because it’s less human than the Predator and as such, features many more entirely foreign giblets. They’re still both pretty gross (so sorry if you were eating a late lunch).

Australia Joins The Hunt For Alien Life With The SKA

After years of work and millions of dollars spent, the CSIRO today finally opened the first stage of the Square Kilometre Array (SKA): the ASKAP radio telescope — an absurdly powerful piece of technical machinery that is going to hurtle our understanding of the universe forward. Mapping the stars and unlocking the universe isn’t the only thing the SKA will be used for though: the CSIRO is actually looking for extraterrestrial life at the same time.

Watch: Augmented Reality T-Shirt Will Have Your Chest Bursting In Excitement... Literally

Augmented Reality T-shirts have come along way since the days of QR codes. Why settle for prosthetics or, say, actual chest-bursting death, when a simple app, a shirt and a special image can give you all the old school goriness without a trip to the costume department / local emergency room?

Use This Equation To Figure Out If Alien Life Exists

The Drake Equation, developed by astronomer Frank Drake, is an equation that estimates how many alien civilisations might live in our galaxy. But the more we find out about the way of the milky, the less chance alien life exists. Just check out the difference between how much alien life existed before when the Drake Equation was invented and how much alien life is estimated to exist now.

No, Curiosity Has Not Captured UFO Images On Mars

Ufologists are jumping up and down after “discovering flying saucers” in the latest images captured by Curiosity. It hasn’t been the first time and it will not be the last — the guys with the tinfoil hats are scrutinising every single image uploaded by the rover.
