The search for Extra terrestrial is getting curiouser and curiouser.
UFO and ET news and sightings never die down.
Scientists steadfastly refuse to accept evidence at all nor are they willing to examine the available information without bias.
Now more news.

Last autumn, the Templeton Foundation, a philanthropic organisation dedicated to investigating what it calls the “big questions” – which, unsurprisingly, include “Are we alone?” – awarded Marcy $200,000 to pursue his search for alien civilisations.
As far as Marcy, an official Nasa researcher for the Kepler mission, is concerned, that question has a clear answer: “The universe is simply too large for there not to be another intelligent civilisation out there. Really, the proper question is: ‘How far away is our nearest intelligent neighbour?’ They could be 10 light years, 100 light years, a million light years or more. We have no idea.”
To answer that question Marcy has begun to sift through the Kepler data and to search the heavens for a galactic laser internet that might be in use somewhere out there. (More on that in a bit.)
Launched in 2009, Kepler was designed as a four-year mission to detect planets – habitable or otherwise – around distant stars by measuring the dimming of those stars as orbiting bodies pass in front of them. In May, a component of the spacecraft designed to keep it pointing precisely failed, dealing a crushing blow to Marcy and his colleagues who last year convinced Nasa to extend funding for the mission into 2016, which Marcy says would have allowed researchers to further refine the number of known Earthlike planets in our galactic neighbourhood.
“It’s a heartbreaker,” he says. “People are reacting a little bit as if a close family member died. There’s this combination of severe depression and confusion, coupled with denial.”
Kepler has been wildly successful in its four years. To date, it has found 132 exoplanets – that is, planets outside our solar system – and possibly 3,216 more that await confirmation. Researchers have extrapolated from Kepler data that our Milky Way galaxy alone contains at least 100bn exoplanets, as many planets as there are stars. Still, with the telescope – which is 64m km from Earth – having collected data on 150,000 star systems, researchers are only beginning to pick through all the information.
Marcy hopes that hiding within it will be hints about intelligent life abroad. What if, say, the dimming of a star that Kepler observes is caused by something even more fanciful than the passage of extrasolar planets? Something synthetic, perhaps? Marcy admits that even he’s not certain what he’s looking for.
“I do know that if I saw a star that winked out, then at some point it winked back on again, then winked out for a long, long time and then blinked on again, that that would be so weird,” he says. “Obviously that wouldn’t constitute the detection of an advanced civilisation yet, but it would at least alert us that follow-up observations are warranted.”
Such an irregular pattern might signal the leisurely and unpredictable passage of massive spacecraft in front of the star. But, perhaps more likely, it might indicate the presence of a Dyson sphere, a mainstay of science fiction first proposed by physicist Freeman Dyson in 1960.
The concept is simple. The energy needs of a civilisation a thousand or a million years more advanced than our own would probably be vastly greater than ours. The greatest source of energy in a solar system is its star, and that energy could be captured by building a massive structure tiled with solar panels enveloping the star – the ultimate green jobs initiative.
Sirius is a feature length documentary that follows Dr. Steven Greer â an Emergency Medicine doctor turned UFO/ New Energy researcher â as he struggles to disclose top secret information about classified energy & propulsion techniques. Along the way, Dr. Greer investigates new technology and sheds light on criminal suppression. He accumulates over 100 Government, Military, and Intelligence Community witnesses who testify on record about their first-hand experiences with UFOs and with the cover-up.
In the course of his research Dr. Greer is asked to look at an amazing find: a humanoid specimen, 6 inches long from the Atacama Desert. Not until 2012 was he given permission to take bone samples and DNA from the specimen. At that same time a pre-eminent geneticist, hearing of this find, offered to do DNA testing. He enlisted an MD from the same university,- world renowned for his work with skeletal anomalies, to view the x-rays and CT scans. Their expertise along with Dr. Greerâs expansive knowledge of the subject bring more questions than answers. Where did this âAtacama Humanoidâ come from? Are there others like it? What does it say about the origin of the human species?
