Little Green Men? NASA's Big Discovery and British UFOs!

Little Green Men? NASA's Big Discovery and British UFOs!

It's a big day for alien watchers and sci-fi fans (okay, scientists too.) Overnight, Britain declassified a whole spaceship full of files for the first time detailing hundreds of sightings of unexplained objects in the skies over Britain.

Green men with big heads? That's so space-ist! Not quite but according to the investigator at the Ministry of Defense,

"while there's no evidence of little green men in these files, they should be of immense interest to skeptics and believers. Most of the UFO sightings here are probably misidentifications of aircraft lights and meteors, but some are more difficult to explain, they include UFOs seen by police officers and pilots, and cases where UFOs have been tracked on radar."

While the files have scientific and defense significance, this is funny: "The files also note that the number of UFO reports doubled after the release of Steven Spielberg's film Close Encounters of the Third Kind in 1977."

Not to be outdone, NASA had its own big announcement today — they found something they've been searching for 50 years! To find out what it is,

.

Scientists using NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory have discovered the Milky Way's most recent supernova, which exploded a mere 140 years ago, a few years after the Civil War.

Wired liveblogged the announcement saying:

10:16: Reynolds continuing: Supernova located approximately 26,000 light years away from here. Shockwave moving 5 percent of the speed of light, the fastest ever observed. This supernova exhibits special kind of X-ray activity, one of only 4 supernovae with these X-rays, which are incredibly high energy, far beyond anything that even the Large Hadron Collider will create.

Why so cool? Well, it's all about us. "Supernovae make the chemical elements through real alchemy. The calcium in our bones and iron in our blood came from supernovae that exploded. So we're all stardust and it seems reasonable to want to know how elements get formed when stars explode," said one of the scientists. "This is a stellar death and the corpse is still warm."

Are we alone out here? Do you get excited about scientific announcements like this? Do these announcements, plus the Vatican saying today (!) that we should believe in aliens mean anything? I'm just saying if it takes three instances to make a trend, aliens are looking pretty out of this world right now!

whatever you do, do not believe in aliens...it's all a lie. There is no life outside of this planet...none..nothing. Just forget about this article it's all silly thinking.

I think these are really exciting news. I've always been interested in UFO's and such, I don't think we are not alone in this universe. There are billions of galaxies out there, and I think it would be almost impossible for there not to be some form of life out there.

"THEY" ARE HOW WE GOT HERE. WHO DO YOU THINK SENT JESUS CHRIST DOWN HERE TO FREE US? THERE ARE LEGIONS OF ANGELS. AN ENTIRE GOVERNMENT IN THE UNIVERSE. IT'S ONLY A SECRET IN OUR OWN MINDS. THE IDEA THAT WE CAME FROM DESTROYED CIVILIZATIONS ON OTHER LOCAL PLANETS IS SO FANTASTIC IT'S IS ONLY REFLECTED IN SUBLIMINAL STORIES LIKE SUPERMAN OR FLINTSTONES "GAZOO". THE MEN WHO WERE INSPIRED TO WRITE THE HOLY BIBLE HAD NO DESCRIPTIVE WORDS EXCEPT FOR "ANGELS OF THE LORD" NO LINK BETWEEN CROMAGNUM AND NEANDRATHOL? MAYBE CROMAGNUM MAN IS NOT NATIVE TO THE PLANET! THERE ARE BIGGER IDEAS IN THE WORLD THE LIBERAL MEDIA DOESNT WANT YOU TO KNOW ABOUT. THERE ARE ACTUALLY CIVILIZATIONS IN THE UNIVERSE SO OLD THEIR INTELLECTUAL LEVEL FAR EXCEEDS HUMANITY BEYOND OUR WILDEST IMAGINATION. THEY SEE IN THE DARK LIKE WE SEE IN THE LIGHT. DON'T LET ARROGANCE OF THE LIBERAL MEDIA MAKE UP YOUR MIND FOR YOU! USE COMMON SENSE!

I believe in life on other planets. Not necessarily "little green men" but some form of life. I actually think it pretty cool.

I don't know really. I don't so much believe in the little green men..but I also think it's kind of strange to just assume that we're all the living things in the universe. It's so big. We're so tiny.

I'm with Congressman Kucinich. I saw a UFO and it was beautiful. Honestly I could have kicked Tim Russert for asking that question at the debate. He knew precisely what he was doing to, trying to make the congressman look like a fool. My experience took place around 2:15am about 40/45 miles East of Los Angeles. There was a thick low cloud layer and while I was driving I notice some lights in the clouds. Nothing unusual, at first, but then the lights just sat there in a fixed position right at the bottom of the cloud layer. Then they began to spin and roll in a fixed position. Then from one fixed position to another fixed position it began to zip in a straight line along the bottom of the cloud layer. I pulled my car over to the side of the road and just watched it for about twenty minutes. It was so beautiful to watch and I had the biggest smile on my face. The whole time not even a sound. When all was said and done it took off like a bat out of hell to destinations unknown.

I remember when I was a child growing up in Indiana, I was abducted for a short while and then returned to Devil's Mountain in Wyoming. I was frightened for a long time until I saw Richard Dreyfus and thought, "why is that guy from Jaws here?"

Since the Catholic Church now says there may be life in other solar systems or universes, hey, be they little green men or look exactly like us, it could be. We don't know everything there is about everything. I'll leave the light on.
