The Galaxy Report –“Alien Worlds to Are Humans a Genetic Accident?”

ESO Chile

 

Insights from the world’s leading scientists on evolution, climate change, technology and extraterrestrial life. We are the only species of the billions of species that have existed on Earth that has shown an aptitude for radios and even we failed to build one during the first 99% of our 7 million year history, says Australia National University’s Charley Lineweaver.

“Alien Evolution” –Advanced Life Will Mirror Homo Sapiens

Prometheus Movie

 

Scientists are making predictions about the biological make-up of advanced, complex aliens, offering a degree of insight as to what they might look like. In Ridley Scott’s movie Prometheus stunning opening, the Engineer, the blue muscle-bound alien, mirrors a modern human, standing by the waterfall drinking black goo to break down his genetic structure and spread life on Earth through his DNA. What we see is the beginning is the creation of Earth. The giant ship has landed on early Earth to drop off the Engineer to terraform the planet and make it sustainable for life.

NASA’s Ultra-Violet Search for Extraterrestrial Life

NGC 6826

 

Astronomers with NASA’s new SISTINE Mission are targeting M-dwarf stars in their search for extraterrestrial life. Smaller and colder than our Sun, M-dwarfs generate intense ultra-violet light and account for nearly three-quarters of the Milky Way’s stellar population. To understand exoplanets that orbit them, scientists simulated Earth-sized planets circling M-dwarfs. Differences from Earth quickly emerged.

“The Novacene Hypothesis” –Coming Eon of Human Hyper-Intelligence

ESO Chile

 

“We must abandon the politically and psychologically loaded idea that the Anthropocene is a great crime against nature,” says James Lovelock, creator of Gaia theory –Earth-as-superorganism– who argues that the Anthropocene era of human influence over the planet is coming to an end and that an age of superintelligent beings is about to begin. “The truth is that, despite being associated with mechanical things, the Anthropocene is a consequence of life on Earth. It is a product of evolution; it is an expression of nature.”

Alien Civilizations –“May Create Detectable Black-Hole Particle Accelerators”

Cosmic Particle Accelerator

 

“The nightmare of particle physics is the dream of astronomers searching for extraterrestrials,” says astrophysicist Brian Lacki, at the Institute for Advanced Studies in Princeton, New Jersey, who proposes that advanced civilizations may want to build a black-hole-powered particle accelerator to study physics.
