…extraterrestrial life… a new scientific report theorizes that strange modulations among a small star cluster may be be coming from extraterrestrial intelligence that is looking to alert us to their existence. …not all scientists are rushing to join in the consensus…

Interestingly, a piece of an exotic aluminum alloy that appears to be the product of advanced technology was recently discovered in Romania. This find, determined to be 250,000-year-old in one test, is being used as evidence that aliens once visited Earth.…

…The witness said the metallic object had a humanoid form and may have been a robot. The strange humanoid, robot-like object appeared in only one of a series of photos taken seconds apart outside his home in Guthrie, Oklahoma.

This suggested to alien hunters that the object was a mobile unit that had moved out of sight by the time the camera took the next image seconds later.

An image taken of the same space near the witness’s home, about seven hours later, did not contain the mysterious robotic object, but visible in the distance was a rocket-shaped UFO flying in the sky.…

Ars was among the first news outlets to report on discussions among astronomers about observations of an intriguing "signal" that may have originated from a distant, Sun-like star. We cautioned readers that, because the signal was measured at 11Ghz, there was a "significant chance" it was of terrestrial origin, likely due to some military activity.

Well, it apparently was.…

…In their new paper published last week in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society, Kipping and Teachey ask the question: What if another civilization in our galaxy had their own Kepler Mission? What would they see when they observed our star, the Sun?… Kipping and Teachey… explore how we could hide or broadcast our presence. And they argue that other civilizations could already be doing this.…

Over the weekend, reports surfaced of recently unearthed Apollo 10 audio that picked up some strange sounds over the far side of the moon. The alien sounds were almost like music, according to sites covering the declassified recordings. It would be a great story if any of it was true. NASA quickly debunked every aspect of the reports in a Tumblr post Monday. As for the audio being new, they have been publicly available since 1973, according to the space agency.…

While orbiting the moon in 1969, the Apollo 10 team heard 'weird music'… on the far side of the moon… couldn't have come from Earth… Recordings… declassified in 2008… will be played on Science Channel's NASA's Unexplained Files this month…

Cue spooky space music. Oh, wait… already did that.

"The U.S. government yesterday denied ever having had contact with alien lifeforms. The White House insisted there was no evidence extra-terrestrials have visited Earth or made any manner of contact. …"

“In the last fifty years, evidence has steadily mounted that the components and conditions we believe necessary for life are common and perhaps ubiquitous in our galaxy,” said Werthimer in his written testimony.

“There may even be primitive extraterrestrial life in our own solar system, perhaps on a moon of Jupiter or Saturn. Europa, one of Jupiter's moons, is thought to have a liquid water ocean beneath its icy surface, perhaps a good environment for life as we know it.”

The pair said that although “no evidence exists for the presence of life outside of the Earth”, the sheer abundance of planets – “roughly one trillion in our Milky Way galaxy; three times more planets than stars” – suggests that the universe is “teeming with primitive life.”

"The first detection of intelligent extraterrestrial life will likely come within the next quarter-century, a prominent alien hunter predicts."

hahahaha. We'll "detect" them when they let us!

Also, predicting 1st contact? Better luck predicting earthquakes.

Humans and aliens may share the same DNA which could be part of a 'universal structure', according to researchers. The building blocks of life exist in low temperatures and low pressure meaning they are far more likely to flourish than if they were more complex. Whilst no concrete proof has been found yet, the finding makes it more likely they would develop on strange planets than had previously been thought. [I remember my physics professor in college alluding to much the same principle regarding the laws which govern where and how life would appear. Brought to Mindful's attention through Google news feed for "Urantia," which brought up this article thanks to a mention by commenter FizViz, Brighton UK.]

Billions of potentially habitable planets may exist within our galaxy, the Milky Way, raising new prospects that life could exist near Earth, a study has found.

Aliens have landed, infiltrated British nuclear missile sites and deactivated the weapons … The unlikely claims were compiled by six former US airmen and another member of the military who interviewed or researched the evidence of 120 ex-military personnel.

A novel bacterium -- trapped three kilometers under glacial ice for over 120,000 years -- may hold clues as to what life forms might exist on other planets. • Sun 2009 Jun 14, 9:03pm

[fOR] the first time the transmission spectrum of the Earth has been measured.... The spectrum not only contained signs of life but these signs were unmistakably strong. It also contained unexpected molecular bands and the signature of the earth ionosphere.... "Now we know what the transmission spectrum of a inhabited planet looks like, we have a much better idea of how to find and recognize Earth like planets outside our solar system where life may be thriving...." • Thu 2009 Apr 23, 10:08pm

UFOApollo 14 astronaut Edgar D. Mitchell, the sixth man ever to walk on the moon, has a message for all citizens of Earth: We are not alone. "We are being visited," the 79-year-old grandfatherly "spacefarer" told 100 or so UFOlogists gathered at a National Press Club conference called by the Paradigm Research Group (motto: "It's not about lights in the sky; it's about lies on the ground"). "It is now time to put away this embargo of truth about the alien presence," said the astronaut who made the longest moonwalk in history. "I call upon our government to open up … and become a part of this planetary community that is now trying to take our proper role as a spacefaring civilization." • Sat 2009 Apr 11, 11:34pm
