Greece displays ‘7,000-year-old archaeological enigma’

The figure was carved from granite in an era when there were no metal tools available

A statuette which Greek archaeologists are calling a “7,000-year-old enigma” has gone on show in the National Archaeological Museum in Athens.
The bird-like object was carved from granite – without the benefit of metal tools, as it dates from the Final Neolithic period.
The 36cm (14in) statuette has a pointed nose, round belly and cylindrical legs.

But it has mystified archaeologists, who do not know exactly what it is or where it came from.

NASA announces a single star is home to at least 7 earthlike planets

The galaxy is getting very crowded. There may be 300 billion stars in the Milky Way, but until just over 20 years ago, we knew of only one of them that was orbited by planets. In the years since, the galactic census has exploded, with more than 4,700 confirmed or candidate planets discovered so far and astronomers concluding that every star in the galaxy is parent to at least one world.
What has always been harder to spot are Earthlike planets — relatively small ones with a rocky surface, orbiting their sun at the not-too-close, not-too-far distance that would allow liquid water to exist. Today, however, that changed in a big way, as NASA announced that a single star relatively close to Earth is home to no fewer than seven Earthlike planets. If you’re looking for extraterrestrial life, there may be no place better.

New archeological research at the mysterious plain of jars in Laos

The plain of jars in Laos is an enigmatic landscape, filled with thousands of massive stone vessels, some fashioned more than 2,500 years ago. Intriguingly, almost nothing is known about the people who created the jars 1,500–2,500 years ago. They left no written texts, inscriptions, domestic structures, or habitation sites. Local legends talk about giants who used the jars as drinking-cups. Read more

NASA to host major press conference on ‘discovery beyond our solar system’

Nasa is to host a major press conference on a “discovery beyond our solar system”.

The event will see the revelation of major information about exoplanets, or planets that orbit stars other than our sun, according to a release. It made no further mention of the details of what would be revealed.

Exoplanets are the major hope for life elsewhere in the universe, since many have been found that resemble our own Earth and could have the building blocks of life. More of them are being discovered all the time.

Winston Churchill’s essay on alien life found

Winston Churchill is best known as a wartime leader, one of the most influential politicians of the twentieth century, a clear-eyed historian and an eloquent orator. He was also passionate about science and technology. In his essay he writes very scientificaly about the sun, our solar-system and even the vastness of the universe.

The essay finishes eagerly: “with hundreds of thousands of nebulae, each containing thousands of millions of suns, the odds are enormous that there must be immense numbers which possess planets whose circumstances would not render life impossible.” Here Churchill shows that he was familiar with the findings of astronomer Edwin Hubble in the late 1920s and early 1930s, who discovered that there are many galaxies beyond the Milky Way (about 2 trillion, according to a recent estimate).

Taking a bleaker turn that reflects his times, Churchill adds: “I, for one, am not so immensely impressed by the success we are making of our civilization here that I am prepared to think we are the only spot in this immense universe which contains living, thinking creatures, or that we are the highest type of mental and physical development which has ever appeared in the vast compass of space and time.” Read more

Organic Material Discovery Suggests Life Could Exist on Dwarf Planet Ceres

Ceres in the asteroid belt

NASA’s Dawn mission has detected tar-like organic compounds on the dwarf planet’s surface, bolstering prospects for life on the largest body in the asteroid belt. Scientists looking for life beyond Earth have a new target relatively close to home.
The dwarf planet Ceres, which orbits in the Main Asteroid Belt between Mars and Jupiter, has organic compounds on its surface, a paper published in this week’s Science shows.
The discovery, made with NASA’s orbiting Dawn spacecraft, follows earlier findings that the 590-mile wide Ceres may have an ocean beneath its frozen surface.
“There are speculations about a subsurface ocean on Ceres, similar to Europa or Enceladus,” planetary scientist Michael Kuppers, with the European Space Astronomy Center in Madrid, told Seeker.
Europa, a moon of Jupiter, and Enceladus, a moon circling Saturn, are two prime targets in the search for life beyond Earth.
“I do think Ceres is a good target for searches for life outside Earth,” Kuppers said. “In addition to distance, the radiation environment is more benign than, for example, Europa.”
