Mon Jan 20 - Dr. Michael Salla - US Air Force Secret Space Program and the Hidden History of Antartica

The US Air Force is experiencing a profound shift! In order to aggregate the military’s major space assets under one authority, they are being moved into a new branch under the purview of the Air Force. This new branch is to be called “Space Force”. Dr. Michael Salla will discuss the history of the Air Force Secret Space Program ushering in a new era with the recovery of several extraterrestrial craft, secret agreements with a breakaway German colony in Antarctica (the Fourth Reich), different extraterrestrial group, and much much more! Website: Exopolitics.org Dr. Michael Salla is an internationally recognized scholar...

NASA announces search for alien planets in solar system

The space agency's Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) has been delivered to its Kennedy Space Centre ahead of launch. Experts will send the ship hurtling through space in the hunt for exoplanets over a period of at least two years. The agency vowed to discover thousands of the new planets and will scan the new worlds for extraterrestrial life. "TESS is NASA's next step in the search for planets outside of our solar system, known as exoplanets, including those that could support life," the space agency reports. "The mission is expected to catalog thousands of planet candidates and vastly increase...

NASA Wants to Build Boomless Supersonic X-Plane

NASA has taken a huge leap forward in its quest to create an aircraft that can travel faster than the speed of sound without causing the ear-splitting sonic boom. The space agency announced today (April 2) that it has awarded the aerospace company Lockheed Martin a $247.5 million contract to design and build a new X-plane, known as the Low-Boom Flight Demonstrator (LBFD), which may soar silently over the U.S. by 2022. Today's announcement comes less than two weeks after President Donald Trump signed a federal budget for FY2019 that fully funds the LBFD. In his budget proposal, Trump noted...

NASA Has a Plan to Put Robot Bees on Mars

NASA has two teams of researchers working to design a robotic bee that can fly on Mars. The space agency announced the project on March 30. It's in its early stages, but the idea is to replace modern rovers — which are slow, bulky and very expensive — with swarms of sensor-studded, fast-moving micro-bots that can cover much more ground at a relatively low cost. Literally called Marsbees, the little bots are "flapping wing flyers of a bumblebee size with cicada-sized wings," NASA officials wrote. As Live Science has previously reported , the largest species of bumblebee grows to be...

NASA receives response from Voyager 1 spacecraft 13 billion miles away after 37 years of inactivity

The thrusters aboard the Voyager 1 spacecraft just did what we thought was impossible. After 37 years of inactivity, NASA just received response from spacecraft 13 billion miles away, NASA said in a statement on its website. Voyager 1 is NASA’s farthest and fastest spacecraft. It was launched on September 5, 1977. Having operated for 40 years, 6 months and 14 days as of March 19, 2018, the spacecraft relies on small devices called thrusters to orient itself so it can communicate with Earth. These thrusters fire in tiny pulses, or “puffs,” lasting mere milliseconds, to subtly rotate the spacecraft...
