Hubble space telescope reveals 10 times more galaxies than thought in universe: Two trillion!

(CHRON) — Astronomers revealed Thursday there are roughly two trillion galaxies in the observable universe, about 10 times more than previously thought.

Mind blowing.

The startling revelation comes courtesy of a new sky census assembled from surveys taken from NASA’s Hubble Space telescope and other observatories.

These newly discovered galaxies were actually present during the early days of our universe and over time merged to form larger galaxies, according to research published Thursday in the The Astrophysical Journal.

In other words, galaxies are not evenly distributed throughout the universe’s history.

“These results are powerful evidence that a significant galaxy evolution has taken place throughout the universe’s history, which dramatically reduced the number of galaxies through mergers between them — thus reducing their total number. This gives us a verification of the so-called top-down formation of structure in the universe,” said the University of Nottingham’s Christopher Conselice, who led the team of researchers.

SETI investigating a possible extraterrestrial signal from deep space

(OBSERVER) — An international team of scientists from the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI) is investigating mysterious signal spikes emitting from a 6.3-billion-year-old star in the constellation Hercules—95 light years away from Earth. The implications are extraordinary and point to the possibility of a civilization far more advanced than our own.

The unusual signal was originally detected on May 15, 2015, by the Russian Academy of Science-operated RATAN-600 radio telescope in Zelenchukskaya, Russia, but was kept secret from the international community. Interstellar space reporter Paul Gilster broke the story after the researchers quietly circulated a paper announcing the detection of “a strong signal in the direction of HD164595.”

The mysterious star’s designation is HD164595, and it’s considered to be sun-like in nature with a nearly identical metallic composition to our own star. So far, a single Neptune-like (but warmer) planet has been discovered in its orbit—HD 164595 b. But as Gilster explained, “There could, of course, be other planets still undetected in this system.”

Decorated Italian SETI researcher and mathematician Claudio Maccone along with Russia’s Nikolai Bursov of the Special Astrophysical Observatory are the principal scientists working on the apparent discovery. They claim that “permanent monitoring of this target is needed.”

NASA HISTORIC ANNOUNCEMENT: More than 1,200 new planets that could hold life found

(UK EXPRESS) — The US space agency has just announced the discovery of the new “exoplanets” which are considered as similar to Earth.

It more than doubles the previous amount of exoplanets found by the Kepler Telescope.

It comes after NASA said they now also believe every star in space has at least one planet orbiting it.

Among the new discoveries are also a further 100 grade A rocky exoplanets which are the most likely for life to begin just like Earth.

It was previously believed that many stars were out there alone, meaning the odds of other Earth-like planets with the right conditions for life to start are much higher than ever believed.

The information has come from astronomers researching swathes of data from the Kepler Telescope mission.

NASA made the major announcement about the latest findings from the Kepler research at an ongoing press conference, so click back on this story which will be updated.

A NASA spokesman said: “When Kepler was launched in March 2009, scientists did not know how common planets were outside our solar system.

“Thanks to Kepler’s treasure trove of discoveries, astronomers now believe there may be at least one planet orbiting every star in the sky.”

Kepler completed its prime mission in 2012, and collected data for an additional year in an extended mission. In 2014, the spacecraft began a new extended mission called K2.

K2 continues the search for exoplanets while introducing new research opportunities to study young stars, supernovae and other cosmic phenomena.

Scientists discover three ‘potentially habitable’ planets

(AFP) — By Marlowe Hood

An international team of scientists said Monday they had discovered a trio of Earth-like planets that are the best bet so far for finding life outside our solar system.

The three orbit an ultracool dwarf star a mere 39 light years away, and are likely comparable in size and temperature to Earth and Venus, they reported in a study, published in Nature.

“This is the first opportunity to find chemical traces of life outside our solar system,” said lead author Michael Gillon, an astrophysicist at the University of Liege in Belgium. Read more »

Do aliens exist? UK to disclose secret UFO files in March this year

(ZEENEWS) — New Delhi: For years, scientists have refused to reveal the truth behind unexplained UFO mysteries. This has baffled us and speculations about whether the extraterrestrial life really exists or not just gets murkier day by day.

According to reports, the UK government is all set to release shocking evidence of alien contact, when 18 classified files will be released in March 2016.

However, the British government also stated that they may not make these files public as they contain ‘sensitive material’.

It has been claimed by former government employees that at least two of these files contain clear evidence of UFO landings and alien contact. Read more »

EXCLUSIVE: French MoD ‘contacted’ aliens during bizarre experiment, document reveals

(UK EXPRESS) — Dr Steven Greer, a US former hospital medical emergency doctor, is now calling on governments worldwide to publish all withheld documents on alien visitations and UFOS.

During a visit to Westminster last night he alleged to have the French government on board.

He revealed for the first time what he claimed to be a genuine letter from the French ministry detailing an experiment he convinced them to take part in to make contact with extra-terrestrial beings.

The medic turned Ufologist, who set up the Disclosure Project and the Center for the Study of Extraterrestrial Intelligence (CSETI), also called on London and members of the public worldwide to “rise up and change things” by demanding an end to UFO secrecy.

Remembering Edgar Mitchell: UFO/ET disclosure advocate

(COLUMBIA DAILY TRIBUNE) — Former NASA astronaut Edgar Mitchell, who walked on the moon in 1971, died Feb. 4 at the age of 85 in West Palm Beach, Fla., just one day before the 45th anniversary of his historic Apollo 14 lunar landing. Mitchell’s mission was the Apollo program’s fourth and was the first after Apollo 13’s failed attempt to land because of a pre-landing oxygen tank explosion.

Mitchell was accompanied to the moon’s surface by U.S. Navy Capt. Alan Shepard. The two collected 94 pounds of moon rock for scientific research back on Earth. During their 33 hours of work, they completed the longest moonwalk in history. Read more »

UFO or…TR-3 B Astra – The USA’s most secret space plane

(UFO DIGEST) — The TR-3B is Code named Astra. The tactical reconnaissance TR-3B first operational flight was in the early 90s. The triangular shaped nuclear powered aerospace platform was developed under the Top Secret, Aurora Program with SDI and black budget monies. At least 3 of the billion dollar plus TR-3Bs were flying by 1994. The Aurora is the most classified aerospace development program in existence. The TR-3B is the most exotic vehicle created by the Aurora Program. It is funded and operationally tasked by the National Reconnaissance Office, the NSA, and the CIA. The TR-3B flying triangle is not fiction and was built with technology available in the mid 80s. Not every UFO spotted is one of theirs. Read more »

Crowd sourced satellite project seeks UFO disclosure

(OPEN MINDS TV) — A group of techies has started an Indiegogo crowd sourcing campaign to fund a fleet of tiny satellites to search for UFOs in orbit.

The campaign is called “CubeSat for Disclosure – Low-Earth Orbit Satellite” and is utilizing off-the-shelf technology to develop a relatively cheap observation platform in space.

There are several companies that offer equipment for what are called CubeSats, also referred to as nanosatellites. These are small satellites that offer an affordable way for students, researchers, and private companies to have their own little satellite. The cubes measure 10x10x10 centimeters. Read more »
