New Super-Earth found in our Back Yard

Ok, so we have got one more. In our backyard from cosmic distance point of view.

We are talking about a planet orbiting red dwarf star GJ 740.

Red dwarf stars have a mass of 0.10 to 0.50 of that of our Sun, and a temperature between 2400 and 3700 Kelvin.

It is a super-earth, because it is in the Goldi-Locks zone, and has a mass of about 3 times that of Earth, and an orbital period of 3 Years.

This discovery was recently published in the journal Astronomy and Astrophysics.

Aliens are for real, and we are part of a Galactic Federation: ex-Israeli Space Chief

President Donald Trump was on the verge of revealing the presence of Aliens to us, according to a top scientist and ex-Israeli Space Chief Prof. Haim Eshed, who served as the head of Israel’s space program from 1981 to 2010.

Eshed revealed following:

  1. USA and Israel have been working together for decades, and Aliens are among us for centuries.
  2. There is not one, but are many Alien civilizations and all are governed under the “Galactic Federation”.
  3. Aliens are worried that we would not be able to handle news of their presence.
  4. Donald Trump, the USA president, was on the verge of announcing their presence, but they advised him not to do so and let the humans “Calm down a bit”.
  5. Generally, they have been peaceful and do not pose any immediate danger to humankind.
  6. Aliens have been studying the universe with us and they do not know all secrets of the universe.
  7. “The UFOs have asked not to publish that they are here, humanity is not ready yet. Trump was on the verge of revealing, but the aliens in the Galactic Federation are saying: Wait, let people calm down first. They don’t want to start mass hysteria. They want to first make us sane and understanding,” said Eshed
  8. Eshed claimed the American astronauts were coordinating with the aliens in an “underground base” on planet Mars.
  9. Eshed originally made the comments to 7 Days, the weekend edition of the Israeli daily Yedioth Aharonoth.

This shocking revelation comes on close heels of the USA admitting many UFO phenomena were actually objects not known to the human race.

All these developments bring us one step closer to The Grand Revelation.

Tabby’s star: It’s dust, not aliens!

KIC 8462852, also known as Boyajian’s Star, or Tabby’s Star has been a source of exciting anticipations since last couple of years.

After all, it could have been aliens!

The phenomenon was thought to be a possibility of Dyson’s Sphere, a hypothetical structure built around a star to absorb all it’s energy, like the below image. Given the amount of matter, energy and engineering sophistication required to build such a structure, it is beyond a civilization like ours to fathom building something like this. Therefore, it could have been an advanced civilization which was doing this. Aliens!

Now, hold your breath.

However, a new study, co-authored by Tabetha Boyajian, on whose name the star is given the name Tabby’s Star, shows there could be simpler explanations for the mysterious dimming of the star.

Earlier, many of the possible reasons were ruled out by scientists, including possible dimming by a swarm of dust or asteroids.

Now it seems it could only be dust after all.

Data from different sources indicates that there is less dimming in Infrared light compared to dimming seen in Ultraviolet light. This could only mean one thing: The objects surrounding the star are not large objects, still there is some dimming.

The most plausible explanation for this is a huge swarm of dust rotating around the star, obstructing light coming to us.

Overall, study is still evolving and it will take more time to conclude something.

Wait for the JWST to uncover the truth. Until then, scientists continue to provide more insights and more concrete scenarios every passing day.

Are we living in a Matrix?

Is this world real? Are we really living beings? Is there a master of the universe? Are we being watched? Is this world just a multiplayer game? These questions may seem perplexing. However today we have more evidence than ever to prove the world in which we live may not be real after all. There are many reasons to believe this. Today we explore those reasons.

1. Holographic Principle

The holographic principle is a deduction from String theory, or as some people call it, the M theory. It states that the universe is a game being played in lower dimensional space, whereas the reality has many more dimensions. It is very much like a Hologram which gives impression of 3 dimensions, actually being limited to 2 dimensions. This theory gives strength to the view that this world is not what we perceive, and the reality is something very different, which we can not even imagine. All of this is not just hypothesis. At the start of 2017, scientists almost have a proof that Hologram is real.

2. Game of Life by John Conway

John Conway devised a very simple and unsuspecting game, called the “Game of Life”. This game consisted of a maze and some squares, which can move in one direction at a time. See details of this on following video:

An astonishing facts proven by this game is that by simple rules on a checkered board, movements of blocks create and destroy complex organisms very much in tune with the theory of evolution of life. In a way, the “Game of Life” gives rise to near-living organisms. These organisms live in their own universe, living and giving birth to the new ones, and interacting with one-another like living entities. If we call them a part of game, why we can’t be part of a more complex game?

3. Evolution of Science and computers

It may sound odd, but the hypothesis that we might be living in a matrix, is emboldened by progression in area of computer science. Today we are developing computer games, which are so complex and so life-like, that some day it would be difficult to differentiate world of computer games or virtual reality with the real world. If science in our times, in just a few hundred years, has been able to create such games, why should it not be possible for a much evolved species to create a game having humanity as players, or even merely as good as insects? If you think this is just speculative fantasy, just think what it means when it comes from none other than Elon Musk? See following video to hear what he says:

4. Religion & Beliefs

This question is as well discussed in science world as in our religious texts. Sacred texts of all religions have emphasized that this material world is  just an illusion. If we take it literally, it means a very startling possibility is staring at us. When sacred texts tell us this world is unreal and reality lies with Him, the God, it may very well mean they refer to a master of the universe. He may not be God but an Alien controlling our universe.

Is god alien?
