UFO Legacy: What Impact Will Revelation of Secret Government Program Have?

Believers in aliens visiting Earth's friendly skies via Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs) couldn't ask for more: A secretive government group backed by federal "black money," a talkative former U.S. military intelligence official, fighter-jet video of odd objects doing out-of-this-world maneuvers and a space mogul purportedly housing leftovers of unidentified aerial craft. It all has the feel of sliding open a top drawer in a new "X-Files" TV episode. Yes, "the truth is out there," a maxim made all the stranger by reports last month by both The New York Times and Politico Magazine of the secretive Advanced Aviation Threat Identification...

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has announced its latest challenge, called the Subterranean or "SubT" Challenge. The global competition asks entrants to develop systems that can help humans navigate, map and search in underground locations that are normally too perilous to visit. "One of the main limitations facing war fighters and emergency responders in subterranean environments is a lack...

Five takeaways from the federal climate report

The New York Times on Tuesday detailed the conclusions of a major draft government study on climate change — and how scientists are preparing for pushback from President Trump’s administration. The report is part of an effort that 13 federal agencies undertake every four years to report on the state of the climate and climate science. It’s government-mandated, but the Trump administration has yet to sign off on the report, raising concerns that the administration could undercut some of its more dire observations and predictions. The White House on Tuesday criticized The New York Times for "writing off a draft...
