We are seeing so many remarkable pre-announcement pieces showing up, this is a place to post and discuss them. This one for example, is making discoveries sound 'ho hum' which a few months/years ago were heralded as amazing breakthroughs. Today for example: 

"Nearly Every Star Hosts at Least One Alien Planet"

http://news.yahoo.com/nearly-every-star-hosts-least-one-alien-plane...

When a month or so ago they were making a BIG deal about finding one planet in the sweet zone which could possibly support life, son they they say 25% of them could support life! Including mention of red dwarfs, etc. The Zeta predicted evidence continues to build up!

Here is another blog that relates, describing a wobble:

Australia and Canada form climate alliance: Seek to avoid carbon ta...

Stephen Harper and Australia's Tony Abbott won't let climate policies kill jobs


Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbot, right, in Ottawa to meet with Prime Minister Stephen Harper, said climate change is not the 'most important problem the world faces.'

Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbot, right, in Ottawa to meet with Prime Minister Stephen Harper, said climate change is not the 'most important problem the world faces.'


The political leaders of Canada and Australia declared on Monday they won’t take any action to battle climate change that harms their national economies and threatens jobs.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper and his Australian counterpart, Tony Abbott, made the statements following a meeting on Parliament Hill.

Abbott, whose Liberal party came to power last fall on a conservative platform, publicly praised Harper for being an “exemplar” of “centre-right leadership” in the world.

Abbott’s government has come under criticism for its plan to cancel Australia’s carbon tax, while Harper has been criticized for failing to introduce regulations to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in Canada’s oil and gas sector.

Later this week, Abbott meets with U.S. President Barack Obama, who has vowed to make global warming a political priority and whose administration is proposing a 30-per-cent reduction of carbon dioxide emissions from power plants by 2030.

At a Monday news conference, Harper and Abbott both said they welcomed Obama’s plan. Abbott said he plans to take similar action, and Harper boasted that Canada is already ahead of the U.S. in imposing controls on the “electricity sector.”

But both leaders stressed that they won’t be pushed into taking steps on climate change they deem unwise.

“It’s not that we don’t seek to deal with climate change,” said Harper. “But we seek to deal with it in a way that will protect and enhance our ability to create jobs and growth. Not destroy jobs and growth in our countries.”

Harper said that no country is going to undertake actions on climate change — “no matter what they say” — that will “deliberately destroy jobs and growth in their country.

“We are just a little more frank about that.”

Abbott said climate change is a “significant problem” but he said it is not the “most important problem the world faces.

“We should do what we reasonably can to limit emissions and avoid climate change, man-made climate change,” said Abbott.

“But we shouldn’t clobber the economy. That’s why I’ve always been against a carbon tax or emissions trading scheme — because it harms our economy without necessarily helping the environment.”

Abbott’s two-day trip to Ottawa was his first since becoming prime minister and it quickly became evident he is on the same political page as Harper.

They are both conservative politicians who espouse the need to balance the budget, cut taxes, and focus on international trade.

Just as Harper once turned to former Australian prime John Howard for political guidance, Abbott is now turning to his Canadian counterpart as a model.

He recalled how he met Harper in late 2005, just before the federal election that brought Harper to power.

“You were an opposition leader not expected to win an election. But you certainly impressed me that day. And you’ve impressed not only Canadians but a generally admiring world in the months and years since that time.”

“I’m happy to call you an exemplar of centre-right leadership — much for us to learn, much for me to learn from the work you’ve done.”

Harper paid tribute to Abbott for the work he has done as chair of the G20, which will hold a meeting in November in Australia.

“You’ve used this international platform to encourage our counterparts in the major economies and beyond to boost economic growth, to lower taxes when possible and to eliminate harmful ones, most notably the job-killing carbon tax,” said Harper.

Traces of another world found on the Moon

Researchers have found evidence of the world that crashed into the Earth billions of years ago to form the Moon.

Analysis of lunar rock brought back by Apollo astronauts shows traces of the "planet" called Theia. The researchers claim that their discovery confirms the theory that the Moon was created by just such a cataclysmic collision.

Have aliens already visited Earth? Nasa book suggests that ancient rock art could have been created by extraterrestrials

  • A new book details the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (Seti)
  • In it the authors discuss the methods through which we might find aliens
  • These include searching for signs of life on planets or finding messages
  • The book details some of the challenges ahead for making first contact
  • But ultimately the authors say it is something that might happen one day

 

Each month a new planet is discovered that bears similarities to our own - and it is becoming increasingly apparent Earth is not unique.

So it stands to reason that of the billions of Earth-like planets in our galaxy alone, there might be another that hosts life.

It’s a thought that is gaining more credence all the time, and now Nasa has released a fascinating book detailing how, or if, we might communicate with some of these worlds.

Scroll down to read the PDF of the book

A new book made for Nasa called Archaeology, Anthropology and Interstellar Communication details the methods through which we might communicate with aliens. Although this artist's illustration is a bit fanciful, the authors suggest that Earth may already have been visited

A new book made for Nasa called Archaeology, Anthropology and Interstellar Communication details the methods through which we might communicate with aliens. Although this artist's illustration is a bit fanciful, the authors suggest that Earth may already have been visited

Some of the most interesting chapters tackle the issue of alien communication in the past, present and future.

In one section, for example, William Edmondson from the University of Birmingham considers the possibility that rock art on Earth is of extraterrestrial origin.

‘We can say little, if anything, about what these patterns signify, why they were cut into rocks, or who created them,’ he writes.

‘For all intents and purposes, they might have been made by aliens.’

The book is titled Archaeology, Anthropology and Interstellar Communication.

THE HISTORY OF SETI

In 1959, Cornell physicists Gieuseppi Cocconi and Philip Morrison published an article discussing the potential to use microwave radio to communicate between stars.

A year later in 1960, astronomer Frank Drake conducted the first hunt for alien life with an 85-foot (25 metres) antenna in West Virgina, but after two months concedes defeat.
In the 1960s, Soviet Union performs extensive searches for ET, again with no success.

In the 1970s Nasa began to take an interest in Seti, with the chances of success seemingly growing as technology advanced.

In 1988, Nasa began sweeping surveys of the night sky for signals, but Congress terminated funding a few years later.

The independent Seti Institute, established in 1984, took over the job.

In 1992 the first planet outside the solar system is confirmed, an almost certainly uninhabitable world orbiting a pulsar.

In 2009 Nasa’s Kepler telescope launches and, over the next few years, finds hundreds of planets.

And just last month, the first planet of a similar size to Earth and at the correct distance from its parent star to host water, called Kepler 186-f, was found.

It is the most likely place that has been found that could host life as we know it.

It was edited for Nasa by Douglas Vakoch, Director of Interstellar Message Composition at the Seti Institute.

With the help of other experts he tackles a number of topics including the prospect of life on other planets and the means through which we might send or receive a message.

Vakoch begins the 330-page book by postulating how difficult it might be to make first contact.

‘If a radio signal is detected in a modern Seti experiment, we could well know that another intelligence exists, but not know what they are saying,’ he writes in the book’s introduction.

He goes on to add: ‘Even if we detect a civilisation circling one of our nearest stellar neighbours, its signals will have traversed trillions of miles, reaching Earth after travelling for years.’

But, all hope is not lost – throughout the book Vakoch and his colleagues tackle these very problems, and provide solutions that may prove invaluable in the future.

‘To move beyond the mere detection of such intelligence, and to have any realistic chance of comprehending it, we can gain much from the lessons learned by researchers facing similar challenges on Earth,’ he continues.

‘Like archaeologists who reconstruct temporally distant civilisations from fragmentary evidence, Seti researchers will be expected to reconstruct distant civilisations separated from us by vast expanses of space as well as time.

‘As we attempt to decode and interpret extraterrestrial messages, we will be required to comprehend the mindset of a species that is radically Other.’

We're About To Learn A Lot More About Area 51

The exhibit features an alleged "authentic alien artifact" -- small pieces of material that came from a reported 1986 UFO crash in Russia.

Also on display are unique UFO photographs from the personal collection of Robert Bigelow, founder of Bigelow Aerospace, that is creating the next generation of spacecraft.

Palmer personally selected Bigelow's UFO images to include in the Area 51 exhibit.

"What's remarkable about them is that they were original negatives -- not prints -- they were negatives that we made prints from, so we know they were not doctored, they're all pre-Photoshop. These are photographic images of UFOs from around the world, going back to the 1940s up through the 70s. In some of the images, you can see that they may be confused with some naturally occurring phenomena, but there are others that are clearly not."

there has been a re-screening of a science programme called horizon which was screened on BBC 4 yesterday - it talked at length about pole shift, changes in magnetosphere and how often his has happened. they are still sticking to the "100's of years" lie - despite the programme clearly showing that this has not taken thousands of years. the only problems cited related to animal movements, nothing about melting ice caps etc etc

Countdown to ‘Chaos’: Diplomat Predicts How Many Days We Have Left Before Climate Disaster

In two languages, French Foreign Minister Lauren Fabius started the countdown Tuesday to climate change disaster, speaking in Washington before a meeting with American counterpart Secretary of State John Kerry.

“We have 500 days to avoid the climate chaos,” Fabius said in French.

Speaking then in English, Fabius touched on Iran, Syria, and Ukraine, but then quickly returned to climate change.

“And very important issues, issue of climate change, climate chaos,” the foreign minister said. “And we have – as I said, we have 500 days to avoid climate chaos.

Researchers Suggest A Violent Event Flipped The Moon
While we tend to think of the moon as a static world - there are signs that the Moon used to be an active planet - with signs of volcanoes and indications of a magnetic field frozen in rocks.Impact craters that flooded with molten rock are also indications of active periods on the Moon.A new study now suggests that the residual magnetic fields hint towards a violent event which flipped the Moon on its side, writes website Ars Technica.The study was published in the journal Nature Geoscience.
Evidence suggests that the Moon was formed when a Mars-sized body collided with the early Earth - leaving both in a molten state.The Moon would have then been left with a sufficiently molten core giving it the ability to have generated a magnetic field for hundreds of millions of years.According to Ars Technica, remnants of the magnetic field would have remained trapped in rocks.A team of Japanese researchers has now analyzed magnetic data from two lunar orbiters, the Lunar Prospector and Kaguya, writes Ars Technica.Both orbited the Moon at low altitudes, under 25 miles (under 40km), and tracked the Moon's magnetic fields.After eliminating areas displaying complexmagnetic anomalies, the team focused on data from 57 different sites on the Moon.They used the readings to calculate the orientation of the Moon's magnetic field atvarious points in its history.While many of the data points clustered atthe current pole, a second set clustered somewhere between 45 and 60 degrees away from the pole.Earth also experiences some degree of ‘polar wander' - but the pole has made a gradual track as Earth's angular momentum shifted.The scientists found that the moon shifted on its axis suddenly - as there are no indications of gradual track between the two locations.As the authors note, "A change in the apparent pole position corresponds to a reorientation of the lunar surface with respect to the rotation axis," writes Ars Technica.The authors suggest a number of events could have been the cause, including significant meteor impacts, internal instabilities, and the gravitational disturbances caused by migrations of the Solar System's gas giants, writes Ars Technica.This isn't the first indication that the Moon may have shifted its orientation.Earlier research has also examined the distribution of craters on the Moon's surface - which would ordinarily be biasedtoward a greater number of craters on theMoon's far side.Instead, it has led some researchers to suggest that the near and far side of the Moon shifted positions sometime in the distance past.While researchers believe the event occurred - methods to track the shift have not been precise enough to indicate when the event took place.

Our Sun Has a Sister
May 8 2014
The ancient Egyptians called it Ra. The ancient Greeks called it Helios. The ancient Mayans called itKinich Ahau. The ancient Germans called it Sól. Our longest-standing and most deeply held myths have so often revolved around the sun in large part because we humans have revolved around the sun. That distant sphere of glowing gas has been, to us fragile creatures, warmth and light and life itself. It has, we now know, been the center of everything we've known. No wonder we've assumed it was divine. Which makesnews just coming out of the University of Texas at Austin—soon to be reported inThe Astrophysical Journal—particularly monumental. Our familiar star, it turnsout, is not unique. Our sun has a sibling—a sister-star that almost certainly originated from the same cloud of gas and dust as our own shining orb. That sibling? A star with the deceptivelydull name of HD 162826. Said star is 15percent more massive than our sun, and located 110 light-years away from us (in the constellation Hercules, whichis, appropriately, un-dully named). We can't see the sun's sister unaided, but even a set of low-power binoculars revealsHD 162826 to human eyes. It's situated near (well, relatively near) the bright star of Vega.McDonald ObservatoryThe discovery was made by team of researchers led by the UT astronomer Ivan Ramirez, with help from several groups around the world. ​Using a combination of chemical analysis (high-resolution spectroscopy) and information about the stars' orbits (their "dynamics"), the team created a list of solar-sibling candidates that included 30 stars. Using information provided by telescopes at both the McDonald Observatory in Texas and the Las Campanas Observatory in Chile, they narrowed the field. In the end, there was one that matched our sun.It was "lucky coincidence," Ramirez says, thatHD 162826 emerged as our sun's sibling. As it turns out, HD 162826has, for the past 15 years, been a subject of study by the McDonald Observatory Planet Search team. Studies conducted by that team, together with calculations provided by the University of New South Wales, mean that we already know a little bit about the our sibling-sun's solar system. It doesn't seem to have any"hot Jupiters," for example (massive planets that orbit close to the star itself). It also doesn't seem to have an analog to Jupiter itself.It may, though, have other, terrestrial planets. And "there is a chance," Ramirez says—"small, but not zero"—that those planets could harbor life.In their earliest days within their birth cluster,he explains,collisions could have knocked chunks off of planets, and these fragments could have travelled between solar systems, and perhaps even may have been responsible for bringing primitive life to Earth. Or, fragments from Earth could have transported life to planets orbiting solar siblings."So it could be argued," Ramirez continued, "that solar siblings are key candidates in the search for extraterrestrial life."And if so: There are lots of candidates.HD 162826 may be the first solar sibling we know of, but it is, Ramirez thinks, not alone in that. That long-ago cloud of gas and dust kept busy."The idea is that the Sun was born in a cluster with a thousand or a hundred thousand stars," Ramirez says. And that cluster, which formed more than 4.5 billion years ago, has long ago broken up, with member stars situating themselves into their own orbits around the galactic center—which in turn scattered them across the Milky Way as it exists today. "A few,like HD 162826, are still nearby," Ramirez says. "Others are much farther afield."
