Stephen Hawkings is concerned and says that humans must leave earth before 2117

Professor Stephen Hawking, who is currently working on a new documentary entitled “Expedition New Earth” with former student Christophe Galfard, now maintains that in order for our civilization to survive, colonizing other planets sooner rather than later is going to be absolutely essential. “Although the chance of disaster to planet Earth in a given year may be quite low, it adds up over time,” he said back in November, while noting that “we should have spread out into space and to other stars, so a disaster on Earth would not mean the end of the human race.” Read more on unexplained-mysteries.com

RAMAR-NOTE: If Stephen Hawking claims that it’ s absolutely essential to colonize other planets for the survival of the human species, then it seems logical that extraterrestrial beings would follow a similar logic and try to colonize other planets for the safety of their own species too. Earth could be an interesting planet for extraterrestrials to colonize because of the great water ressources (and other ressources). Is this the reason, why extraterrestrials seem to be so interested in our planet?

Breakthrough Listen – the initiative to find signs of intelligent life in the universe – publishes initial results

The Berkeley SETI Research Center Breakthrough Listen science team examined data on 692 stars from the primary target list from GBT, consisting of three five-minute observations per star, interspersed with five-minute observations of a set of secondary targets. By performing an analysis of thresholded frequency channels, as well as a Doppler drift search the pipeline identified channels where radio emission was seen for each target (referred to as “hits”). The pipeline produced millions of hits for the sample as a whole, of which the vast majority are almost certainly radio frequency interference from human technology. Eleven events rose above the pipeline threshold for significance, but further detailed analysis indicates that it is unlikely that any of these signals originate from artificial extraterrestrial sources.

“With the submission of this paper, the first scientific results from Breakthrough Listen are now available for the world to review,” said Dr. Siemion. Although the search has not yet detected a convincing signal from extraterrestrial intelligence, these are early days. The work that has been completed so far provides a launch pad for deeper and more comprehensive analysis to come.”

The BSRC team continues to develop more and more sophisticated algorithms, and plans to release updated analyses of Listen data approximately once every six months. The Berkeley team also seeks continued and expanded engagement with signal processing and machine learning experts to help mine the Breakthrough Listen dataset in the search for evidence of signals from extraterrestrial civilizations.

RAMAR-NOTE: As Dr. Siemion mentioned, this is only the beginning and it will be very interesting to see what new results this thrilling research will bring us in the near future.

TRAPPIST-1 system: New scientific paper sets the chance for extraterrestrial life even higher due to litho-panspermia

With several short-period, Earth-mass planets in the habitable zone, the TRAPPIST-1 system potentially allows litho-panspermia to take place on very short timescales. Scientists investigated the efficiency and speed of inter-planetary material transfer resulting from impacts onto the habitable zone planets. By simulating trajectories of impact ejecta from their moment of ejection until (re-)accretion, the scientists  found that transport between the habitable zone planets is fastest for ejection velocities around and just above planetary escape velocity. This indicates that litho-panspermia can be 4 to 5 orders of magnitude faster in TRAPPIST-1 than in the Solar System. Read more

More news from Mars: Strange, triangle shaped geological alignments

© NASA / Mr. Camacho

A UFO researcher (Mr. Camacho—who edits mundodesconocido.es) reveals features on the surface of Mars: Olympus Mons, Pavonis Mons, Arsia Mons, and Ascraeus Mons form a possible ‘artificial’ geological formation on the surface of the red planet. These volcanoes are located in the Tharsis region on Mars and are collectively known as the Tharsis Montes. They form the so-called  Tharsis quadrangle. Furthermore, several smaller volcanic centers northeast of the Tharsis Montes are on an extension of the line. The three volcanoes (most notably Arsia Mons]) also all have collapse features and rifts, from which flank eruptions issued, that transect them along the same northeast-southwest trend. The line clearly represents a major structural feature of the planet, but its origin is uncertain. Read more on ancient code

RAMAR-NOTE: Volcanoes seem to be natural disasters and should not follow geometrical rules but why do they align so perfectly on mars? Do we have similar geological and geometrical occurences on our planet? Might there be a connection?

Trojan asteroids in the orbit of mars may be prove of a mini planet orbiting mars in ancient times

There are a bunch of asteroids orbiting the red planet commonly referred to as ‘Trojans’, and now scientists say these mysterious objects may have belonged to an ancient world that was part of our solar system. According to a new analysis, the objects orbiting Mars are all made from the same composition which indicates they fractured from a planet in the distant past, in what was a massive collision.

Scientists are on the trail of the elusive planet nine

Scientists have narrowed down the hunt for planet Nine, aka Planet X. Astronomers are currently investigating FOUR objects that could be candidates for a NEW planet in our solar system. While planet nine has created a huge social network buzz over the last couple of years, the elusive world has been hunted by astronomers for years. In an article published in Newsweek on July 13, 1987, NASA disclosed that there may be a 10th planet orbiting our Sun. Currently, experts are studying FOUR unknown objects in the outermost reaches of our solar system. One of them may turn out to be Planet Nine, aka Planet X. The next step is to use astronomical observatories around the planet to confirm if or not, the mystery objects are Planet Nine, dwarf planets, or asteroids. Read more at Ancient Code

Scientists discover huge underground cavities on the moon

A group of Japanese scientists claims to have found massive underground tunnels on the moon. These tunnels could be used in the near future as perfect hiding places for human astronauts, according to researchers at the 48th Lunar and Planetary Science conference. Read more

RAMAR-NOTE: This seems to be another puzzle-piece to the 4 most important mysteries of our moon.

1. Moon rotation and orbit so that we always see the same side of the moon. 2. Moon size and distance to earth and sun so that the moon covers the sun perfectly on a solar eclipse. 3. Convex moon-surface even in big craters which indicates a very hard surface beneath the regular moon rock and dust. 4. According to NASA seizmic measurements on the moon during two impacts of space-modules, the moon rang like a bell which indicates that the moon is either completely hollow or at least huge subsurface areas are hollow.

Strange “asteroid” is orbiting the sun in the wrong direction

In 2015, astronomers have discovered a strange “asteroid” with an approx. size of 3 kilometers. The unnamed asteroid shares Jupiter’s orbital space while moving in the opposite direction as the planet, which looks like a recipe for a collision, astronomers said. Yet somehow, the asteroid has managed to safely dodge Jupiter for at least tens of thousands of laps around the sun, a new study showed. Read more

RAMAR-NOTE: How could this “asteroid” dodge Jupiter that many times? Why is it orbiting in the opposite direction? Is the object controlled by an extraterrestrial intelligence? Please share your thoughts an insights in our RAMAR-forum.

NASA’ s Juno spacecraft recorded strange sounds near planet Jupiter

Chilling, alien-like sounds have been recorded coming from Jupiter, and they could be made by enormous creatures living in the planet’s atmosphere.

The sounds were picked up by NASA’s Juno spacecraft, set to enter Jupiter’s orbit today ,July 4th, after a five-year journey through interplanetary space. On June 24, Juno crossed the boundary of Jupiter’s magnetic field and that’s when the WAVES instrument aboard the craft started picking up a series of fascinating radio signals that sound otherworldly when shifted down into the audible spectrum.
