    Gina Panopoulou | Galaxies Are Cosmic Magnets

    Published 12th February 2020

    Magnetic fields are common throughout the cosmos, even coming from galaxies like our own Milky Way!

    Presentation: 00:56; speaker Q&A: 22:00; panel Q&A: 33:56

    Did you know that galaxies have something in common with fridge magnets? Galaxies generate magnetism! But they do so in a very different way. What does galactic magnetism look like? Where does it come from and what cool phenomena does it produce? We’ll see how scientists use supernovae, space dust and polarized glasses to answer these questions and learn about this mysterious property of the Galaxy.

    Galaxies Can Die?! | Quenching 101

    Published 12th February 2020

    Galaxies are made up of billions of stars. And stars can die. So - does that mean a galaxy can die? Technically yes, if you stop it from making more stars after the old ones have died. Let's recap some of the processes we think can do that...

    It's [Redacted].

    Did A UFO-Air Force Encounter Accidentally Kill Four People In New York?

    Published 14th February 2020

    Buried in a Project Blue Book file dated 1954 is a story that’s been forgotten by most...save for residents of Walesville, a small village in upstate New York.

    That July, an Air Force F-94 Starfire was flying toward an unidentified object to investigate it when something went wrong. Within 25 minutes, the plane would crash, taking the lives of four people on the ground — destroying two houses and an automobile with a family inside.

    A military spokesman said a fire caused the crash, but an investigation later found no evidence of smoke or oil in the remnants of the cockpit. The official USAF investigation blamed a series of coincidences for the crash, but a report written by Donald Keyhoe is in the Blue Book file, which suggests the UFO itself was to blame. Electromagnetic interference from UFO encounters has been seen many times before, so this fits that pattern.

    As we'll show in the video, the full story is filled with contradictory statements from USAF personnel at the time, and even inaccurate explanations given to journalists in 1954 that were only learned to be misleading when these files were declassified.

    Alexander Wendt | Wanted: A Science Of UFOs

    Published 4th February 2020

    If any UFOs proved to be extra-terrestrial it would be one of the most important events in human history. Yet there has long been a taboo in modern society on taking UFOs seriously, which has blocked any systematic science to try to determine what they are. Skeptics will say that is because UFOs do not exist, but the US Navy has recently confirmed that they do, and is making an official policy change to reflect this fact, from ignoring its pilots’ UFO encounters to requiring them to file reports. Yet even with the Navy’s revelation,
    the UFO taboo remains so strong that the scientific community continues to show no interest in whether or not UFOs are ETs. In this talk Alexander Wendt argues that the UFO taboo is incoherent and unjustified, and proposes a crowd-funded science of UFOs as a way of beginning to learn more about these elusive phenomena. Alexander Wendt received his Ph.D. in political science from the
    University of Minnesota in 1989. He subsequently taught at Yale, Dartmouth, and the University of Chicago before moving to The Ohio State University in 2004. His research interests center on international relations, where he is one of the most cited scholars in the field, and the philosophy of social science. He is the author of two books, Social Theory of International Politics (Cambridge, 1999), which won the “Best Book of the Decade” award from the International Studies Association in 2006; and Quantum Mind and Social Science (Cambridge, 2015), which hasn’t won anything yet.

    Astronomers To Sweep "Entire Sky" For Signs Of Extraterrestrial Life

    Published 15th February 2020



    Astronomers will sweep the entire sky for signs of extraterrestrial life for the first time, using 28 giant radio telescopes in an unprecedented hunt for alien civilisations.

    The project is a collaboration between the privately-funded Seti Institute and the Very Large Array observatory in New Mexico, one of the world’s most powerful radio observatories. Gaining real-time access to all the data gathered by VLA is considered a major coup for scientists hunting extraterrestrial lifeforms and an indication that the field has “gone mainstream”.

    Normal astronomy operations will continue at the VLA, which was featured in the 1997 film Contact, but under the new arrangement all data will be duplicated and fed through a dedicated supercomputer that will search for beeps, squawks or other signatures of distant technology.

Snow just fell in Mexico, Baghdad and Saudi Arabia, while the majority of the planet is melting down. What's wrong with this picture? Australia has gone from flames to floods, can it get any worse? Are the same scenarios in store for us all?
    No matter how daunting the challenges are before us, it is imperative to press forward with our combined efforts to sound the alarm. All are needed in the critical battle to wake populations to what is coming, we must make every day count.

    Over The United Kingdom To The Middle East - 23rd January 2020

    The series of shots for this time-lapse video were taken by the Expedition 61 crew on board the International Space Station on January 23, 2020 from 21:23:19 to 21:42:27 GMT. The video starts on a night pass over the United Kingdom area, then travels past the major cities of Amsterdam, Berlin, Prague, Katowice, Kyiv, and Tehran. Towards the end of the video, there is a cluster of blue lights just south of Kuwait City; these are most likely boats. Long periods of darkness is typically due to the ISS passing over a body of water. Cities will often line the coast of the water bodies; this video shows the North Sea, Black Sea, Caspian Sea, and the Persian Gulf.



    A Trip Up the North American East Coast - 29th December 2019

    This time-lapse video was taken by the Expedition 61 crew on board the International Space Station. The sequence of shots were taken on December 28, 2019 from 09:00:19 to 09:10:11 GMT, on a night pass over North America's east coast. The video starts over the Gulf of Mexico near the coast of Louisiana, then travels northeastern and passes by Birmingham and a cloudy Atlanta. As the ISS continues, it passes other cities like Richmond, VA, Charlotte, and Greensboro, NC. The long string of major cities illuminate this part of the east coast. Washington, DC, Baltimore, MD, Philadelphia, PA, New York, NY, and Boston, MA, then finally ends over the Bay of Fundy by Nova Scotia.



    A Night of Meteors & Auroras - 4th January 2020

    The series of shots for this time-lapse video were taken by the Expedition 61 crew on board the International Space Station on January 04, 2020 from 11:09:00 to 11:33:50 GMT. On a night pass over the North Pacific Ocean, the ISS looks north and travels into the terminator line to capture a meteor shower, aurora borealis, and cities in British Columbia and Alberta, Canada. What look like tiny white streaks flying towards Earth, are actually the meteors in the meteor shower.



    Earth Glow & Stars

    This time-lapse video was taken by the Expedition 61 crew on board the International Space Station. The sequence of shots were taken on December 30, 2019 from 22:40:00 to 23:10:15 GMT, on a night pass over Africa. The ISS passes over yellow-hued city lights while bright bursts of lightening fill the sky. The star of this time-lapse video is the star field above the Earth glow around the atmospheric limb.
