Head of secret Pentagon program says UFOs can “warp space-time”—what?

Luis Elizondo, former head of a secret Pentagon program studying UFOs, is now extending his recent remarks about craft witnessed in our skies… In an interview with the UK Daily Star (2/8), Elizondo made the following boggling comments: “For the first time, we have a compelling picture that what we are seeing is explained in our current understanding of physics, advanced physics, and quantum mechanics.” “We do believe all these observables we’ve been seeing, sudden and extreme acceleration, hypersonic velocities, low observability, trans medium travel, and last but not least, positive lift, anti-gravity – is really the manifestation of a...

Brain-Like Neural Networks Study Space-Time Distortions at Breakneck Speed

Researchers have used brain-like "neural networks" to analyze key distortions in space-time 10 million times faster than conventional methods can do so. The new study trained an artificial-intelligence system to examine features called gravitational lenses in images from the Hubble Space Telescope as well as simulated images. The process could give researchers a better glimpse of how mass is distributed in the galaxy, and provide close-ups of distant galactic objects. "Analyses that typically take weeks to months to complete, that require the input of experts and that are computationally demanding, can be done by neural nets within a fraction of...

Where Did Time Come From, and Why Does It Seem to Flow?

Paul Davies has a lot on his mind—or perhaps more accurate to say in his mind. A physicist at Arizona State University, he does research on a wide range of topics, from the abstract fields of theoretical physics and cosmology to the more concrete realm of astrobiology, the study of life in places beyond Earth. Nautilus sat down for a chat with Davies, and the discussion naturally drifted to the subject of time, a long-standing research interest of his. Here is a partial transcript of the interview, edited lightly for length and clarity. There might be some pre-geometry, that would...

All 'Original Seven' American astronauts now dead

John Glenn's passing on Thursday means that the first seven American astronauts chosen to lead the fledging US space program in 1959 are now dead, ending a groundbreaking chapter in American history. This crew of military aviators, known as the Original Seven, or "Mercury 7," proved that spaceflight was possible, and paved the way for the pioneering US trips to the moon. Their saga inspired the 1979 Tom Wolfe book "The Right Stuff," and the 1983 movie classic of the same name. Here are the feats the seven are best known for, and how they died: Alan B. Shepard, Jr....

Paranormal Experts Say Rare 737 Engine Blowout Due to UFO Encounter

A Southwest Airlines Boeing 737-700 flying from New Orleans to Orlando, Florida, made an emergency landing Saturday morning due to an apparent major blowout of one of its two engines. What caused such extensive engine damage? Why didn't Flight 3472 crash? Some of the passengers onboard Flight 3472 report missing time. They reported on twitter that every watch on the plane was off New Orleans time by 4 minutes. Those who study alleged alien abductions say, usually, explicit memories of the abduction experience will not be present, and the abductee will only realize they have experienced "missing time" upon checking...
