City Found 360 Feet Below Missouri City, Giant Human Skeleton Found
February 22, 2015
From: http://therundownlive.com

Coal miners in the city of Moberly, Missouri mining a shaft 360 feet deep, broke into a cavern revealing "a wonderful buried city," multiple sources reported in 1885. Incredible rude style masonry and artifacts have been identified. Including stone benches, bronze and flint knives, stone and granite hammers, metal statues, metallic saws and a stone fountain that flowed with "perfectly pure water", which was found to be impregnated with lime.

"Lying beside the fountain were portions of a human being and from measurement of the bones it concluded that when alive the figure was three times the size of an ordinary man and possessed of wonderful muscular power and quickness.", according to the St Paul Daily Globe. Read more

Outgoing Senior Obama Adviser John Podesta Tweets "Biggest 2014 Failure" Is Not Opening Up UFO Files
February 16, 2015
From: https://www.earthfiles.com

John Podesta's February 13 tweet was made as he officially left his senior adviser position in the Barack Obama White House to help manage Hillary Clinton's expected second run for President in 2016. Many are wondering why Podesta chose to tweet as he left the White House that his "biggest failure of 2014" was "not securing the disclosure of the UFO files" in the United States. Further, why did he copy such a tweet to Maureen Dowd, columnist at The New York Times? Read more

To Be or Not to Be Signaling the Aliens: That Is the Question for SETI
February 13, 2015
From: http://www.nbcnews.com

For more than 50 years, scientists have been listening for signals from extraterrestrial civilizations, to no avail. Now some experts on the search for extraterrestrial intelligence, or SETI, think it's time for a sustained effort to send signals out to extraterrestrial civilizations, even though there's no sign of their existence. Others think that's a terrible idea.

The debate over the risks involved in "Active SETI" isn't new: It's been simmering beneath the surface for years, if not decades. What's new is that both sides in the debate want to bring their arguments to the wider public.

"We should encourage ongoing, international discussions about Active SETI, even after the launch of sustained Active SETI projects," SETI Institute researcher Douglas Vakoch says in his proposal for communicating with aliens. Read more

French Nuclear Director Says UFO Was Over His Plant
January 24, 2015
From: http://mysteriousuniverse.org

Someone is very interested in our nuclear plants around the world -- interested enough to be flying various aircraft over and around them in plain sight. Who is doing this? While the media, government agencies and many people in France -- a country with a large nuclear power industry where numerous sightings have occurred recently -- believe the crafts are drones flown by nuclear protesters, the director of one of these plants recently said that, in his opinion, the recent one seen over his facility was a UFO.

From: http://www.space.com

"Planet X" might actually exist -- and so might "Planet Y." At least two planets larger than Earth likely lurk in the dark depths of space far beyond Pluto, just waiting to be discovered, a new analysis of the orbits of "extreme trans-Neptunian objects" (ETNO) suggests. Read more

Mars' Gale Crater Once Held Massive Lake, NASA Says
December 8, 2014
From: http://www.theverge.com

Gale Crater, the landing site of the Mars Curiosity rover, has long been hypothesized to have once held a large standing body of water. In a teleconference this afternoon, NASA announced new scientific findings which support that claim and also suggest that the lake existed for millions of years -- potentially long enough for life to have formed.

By using Curiosity's cameras and on-board instruments, team scientists were able to analogize the size, type, and alignment of the sediment layers in the crater to the formation of lakes here on Earth. In doing that, they were able to determine that the ancient lake was around long enough to create multiple cycles of river and delta migrations, what team member Sanjeev Gupta called a "complex collage of ancient environments."
