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.


New Device Can Easily Detect Tumors Before They Spread Or Even Contact Aliens

Researchers at the National Physical Laboratory and Imperial College London have found a simple way to make masers. According to team leader Dr. Mark Oxborrow, this “new type of electronic device” could revolutionise the world in the same way lasers did — and even beyond that.


Roswell UFO Crashed 65 Years Ago Today

It’s been 65 years since the crash of the UFO (or officially, a weather balloon) in Roswell, New Mexico. 65 years since Roswell Army Air Field (RAAF) public information officer Walter Haut told the world that the military had recovered a flying saucer. 65 years since aliens have been on our planet, or alternatively 65 years of conspiracy theories.


Is Extraterrestrial Life More A Dream Than A Real Possibility?

There is no getting around the fact that a lot of people would be very excited if extraterrestrial life existed. But while plenty of scientists are working hard to find it, others aren’t as convinced — and a team of Princeton physicists has gone as far as publishing an academic article explaining exactly why they think we’re all living in a fantasy land.


How To Prove You've Been Abducted By Aliens

Do I believe in UFOs or extraterrestrial visitors? Where shall I begin? There’s a fascinating frailty of the human mind that psychologists know all about, called “argument from ignorance”. This is how it goes. Remember what the “U” stands for in “UFO”? You see lights flashing in the sky. You’ve never seen anything like this before and don’t understand what it is. You say, “It’s a UFO!” The “U” stands for “unidentified.”


Alien-Themed Sci-Fi Bordello Opening In Nevada

So I’m poking around the Web searching for things to do in Las Vegas after I cover the Consumer Electronics Show for Giz in couple of weeks. Then I stumble across this. And that raises two very important questions. One: Is this so bizarre that I should actually check it out (in the name of science and bad ideas)? And two: What in hell was I searching for to begin with?
