NASA Is Going With “Space Dandruff” To Explain UFO’s Sightings
Former NASA employee James Oberg says UFO sightings can all be explained by a phenomenon known as “space dandruff’.
Oberg claims all sightings can be explained as ice crystals, insulation, debris and other tiny pieces of space stuff that were once on the spacecraft and are now floating in front of cameras and windows. Since they’re so tiny and moving between sunlight and shadows, they can’t be conclusively identified, but he is certain they’re “space dandruff.”
Oberg says he’s not trying to say UFOs don’t exist, just that what we’ve seen so far isn’t of alien origin but doesn’t believe NASA or the federal government is hiding anything about UFOs.
Safeguarding Against Artificial Intelligence
Though humanity hopes that in the future, artificial intelligence will lead the way in finding solutions to mankind’s most perplexing mysterious, they major concern amongst most scientist is that one day AI will surpass human intelligence and could potentially become a threat.
Google DeepMind is taking steps, in conjunction with The Future of Humanity Institute, to outline a framework for stopping out-of-control A.I.
A paper called “Safely Interruptible Agents, states “Safe interruptibility can be useful to take control of a robot that is misbehaving and may lead to irreversible consequences. If such an agent is operating in real-time under human supervision, now and then it may be necessary for a human operator to press the big red button to prevent the agent from continuing a harmful sequence of actions – harmful either for the agent or for the environment – and lead the agent into a safer situation”
Wormholes, and Black Holes And Einstein, Oh My!
According to Einstein’s theory of general relativity, at the center of a black hole lies a point at which the forces of gravity are at their most intense, and time and space effectively end and based on that theory, if an object approaches the event horizon, it would be crushed in one direction, and stretched in another.
Based on a theory first published last year by physicists from the University of Cambridge, a team of physicists at the University of Lisbon in Portugal, have modeled what would happen to different objects, if each one ended up inside the spherical wormhole of a black hole., and argued that there’s no reason why a singularity necessarily has to be on the inside of a black hole and suggest that in a universe with five or more dimensions, which isn’t out of the question for us, a ‘naked’ singularly could exist, which is not bound by an event horizon.
Sky Watch: Jupiter Alongside The Moon
Tomorrow night is your best chance of catching a beautiful site of Jupiter alongside the moon, between midnight and twilight.
An almost-first-quarter moon should be seen within a half hour after sun set and if you look to the western sky, 4 to 5 degrees to the right of the moon, you will see the silvery white planet.
Good luck to all those who will be taking in the sites tomorrow, and if you do manage to get any good pictures or video, we’d love to see them! You can send them here at firstname.lastname@example.org
We Will Hex You
A call to arms has been issued by coven leader Melanie Elizabeth Hexen, to have witches around the world join her in cursing tried rapist Brock Turner, to cause him to “become impotent” and “to know constant pain of pine needles in your guts.”
Hexen made a Facebook event to allow others who wanted to take action to join in on the mass hex, and within 12 hours more than 600 people had RSVPed.
Hexen herself said ‘There must have been a huge need for this for it to blow up so fast. We all felt so much injustice and anger and sadness and the need to connect on a psychological level with other people who felt the same and could do something about it.”
The Large Balloon Reflector Being Set Up For Launch
Christopher Walker, an astronomy professor and professor of optical sciences and electrical engineering at the University of Arizona, won Phase 2 funding from the program two years ago and is now seeing his concept come to life.
he large balloon reflector, as Walker named it, consist of an inflatable, half-aluminized spherical reflector inside a much larger stratospheric balloon. The outer balloon would also act as protection for the telescope once in position outside Earth’s atmosphere.
Measuring those wavelengths could help scientists not only see stars that already exist, but also pinpoint where new stars are likely to form, NASA officials said in a statement.
