What are Ultraterrestrials?

Coined by ufologist John Keel in the 1970s (in his Operation Trojan Horse) to explain the mystery airships, and the Mothman, among other things, ultraterrestrials are like extraterrestrials: a much more technologically and scientifically advanced civilization than ours.

Snowden: Aliens using encryption may keep us from detecting signals

During a recent podcast interview with Neil deGrasse Tyson, former NSA contractor and whistleblower Edward Snowden made an off-the-cuff remark about aliens and encryption and why the latter might hinder efforts to find such beings.

Taking a break from blogging.

Hi Everyone, After years of almost daily blogging, I’ve decided to slow down a bit. Lately I’ve become exited about Open Courseware and the availability of entire training programs free on line as a supplement to paid courses and direct experience.

Lawsuit Alleges NASA Is Failing To Investigate Alien Life

You may recall, NASA recently announced that a strange rock had somehow “appeared” in front of its Mars Opportunity rover.

Closest Earth-like world could be 6.5 light years away

Any aliens on the closest Earth-like world to us may just be finding out that Pluto is no longer a fully fledged planet.

New Alien Planet ‘Habitable Zone’ Rules
