The mysterious bright spots glowed from Ceres' dark surface like alien headlights, capturing many Earthlings' imaginations. But researchers say they're the result of mineral salts, citing data captured by NASA's Dawn mission to study the dwarf planet.

While the findings will likely dampen speculation over the spots, they also portray Ceres as a complex planet -- one that may be holding a reserve of ice. Read more

McKinnon Found Evidence Of 'Space Warships'
December 8, 2015
From: http://www.unexplained-mysteries.com

UFO hacker Gary McKinnon has revealed details of what he allegedly found in NASA's computer systems. The British hacker, who in 2002 was found guilty of the "biggest military computer hack of all time", has spoken out about his efforts to find evidence of government cover-ups relating to UFOs.

The 49-year-old, who was spared extradition to the US three years ago, told RichPlanet TV that he had discovered evidence of a secret space program run by the United States Navy.

"I scanned and looked for documents, I found an Excel spreadsheet which said, 'Non-terrestrial officers'," he said. "It had ranks and names. It had tabs for 'material transfer' between ships. I took that to be, they must have ships based in space - the names started with U.S.S." Read more

December 1, 2015
From: http://www.livescience.com

Thousands of stone structures that form geometric patterns in the Middle East are coming into clearer view, with archaeologists finding two wheel-shaped patterns date back some 8,500 years. That makes these "wheels" older than the famous geoglyphs in Peru called Nazca Lines. And some of these giant designs located in Jordan's Azraq Oasis seem to have an astronomical significance, built to align with the sunrise on the winter solstice. Read more

Mars' Atmosphere Stripped by Solar Winds, NASA Says
November 5, 2015
From: http://www.nytimes.com

The planet's early atmosphere is thought to have been as thick as or thicker than Earth's today, and even over the 4.5-billion-year history of the solar system, that slow leak would not explain how it atrophied to its current wisps.

But new readings from NASA's Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution mission -- Maven, for short -- show that when Mars is hit by a solar storm, the ferocious bombardment of particles from the sun strips away the upper atmosphere much more quickly. Read more

Prehistoric 'Frankenvirus' Mollivirus Sibericum Uncovered In Siberian Permafrost
September 9, 2015
From: http://www.smh.com.au

Scientists have revived a giant virus that has lain frozen under the Siberian tundra for 30,000 years. But the French researchers who discovered the long-dormant virus have warned that climate change has the potential to awaken more disease-causing viruses in the Arctic.

The virus is called Mollivirus sibericum, which means soft Siberian virus, but lay observers have quickly dubbed it "Frankenvirus". In the world of viruses it is a monster, with 523 genetic proteins. The genome of the influenza virus, by comparison, encodes just 11 genetic proteins. Read more

September 7, 2015
From: https://www.earthfiles.com

Durington Walls, a couple of miles northeast of 5,000-year-old Stonehenge, has now been discovered by gradiometers, which measure magnetic variations underground, to have nearly 100 large standing sarsen stones in a line pattern. Some of the sarsen stones were 15 feet (4.5 m) long. The theory now is that Stonehenge and Durrington Walls were one large complex of avenues and standing stones used for mysterious rituals that might have involved the "journey from life to death."
