Revisiting ‘Flight of the Navigator’, Disney’s Darkly Whimsical “Boy and His Alien” Movie

(Welcome to Out of the Disney Vault, where we explore the unsung gems and forgotten disasters currently streaming on Disney+.) Before Disney was known for its corporate synergy and obsession with remaking old animated classics, they actually took a lot of bold chances, especially in the ’70s and ’80s. And especially when it came to sci-fi, fantasy and horror films. Sadly, few of these were successful at the box office, though some managed to become cult hits once they hit home video. One such ...

An ancient super-Earth offers an unexpected clue that life in our galaxy could be older than scientists thought

Artist's rendition of the hot, rocky planet in TOI-561 - one of the oldest, most metal-poor planetary systems discovered yet in the Milky Way. W. M. Keck Observatory/Adam Makarenko A super-Earth planet 280 light-years away seems to be about 10 billion years old, adding to growing evidence that rocky planets have existed almost as long as our galaxy. Ancient rocky planets offer further evidence that extraterrestrial life may have existed long before humans. Scientists may have better su...

"Contentious" book claims Oumuamua was extraterrestrial spacecraft

In his new book Extraterrestrial: The First Sign of Intelligent Life Beyond Earth, theoretical physicist and Harvard professor Avi Loeb (previously at BB) reportedly theorizes about an extraterrestrial spacecraft that may-or-may-not have recently passed by the Earth's orbit.

Discoveries That Really, Really Seemed Like Aliens

As the famous X-Files poster declares, “I want to believe.” This wanting, however, often leads us astray. When confronted with shocking and inexplicable celestial phenomena, we tend to see intelligent design. This jumping to conclusions is a sin for which we can be forgiven—we have an insatiable need to know if…Read more...

Former Israeli military leader opens up about contact with "Galactic Federation" of aliens

According to the Jerusalem Post, 87-year-old retired general Haim Eshed, a former space security chief for the Israeli military, says that the country had been in contact with the "Galactic Federation"—but that, unfortunately, the alien government conglomerate decided that humanity "wasn't ready" for to get involved in interstellar politics: Speaking in an interview to Yediot Aharonot, Eshed – who served as the head of Israel's space security program for nearly 30 years and is a three-time re...

How Disney is screwing the author of numerous best-selling movie novelizations

When Disney acquired Lucasfilm in 2012, and 20th Century Fox in 2019, it also acquired a ton of content. That content had to have been created at some point, a process which typically involves human beings and contracts. But apparently Disney has neglected to honor those contracts, at least in the case of Alan Dean Foster. — Read the rest

10 Great Sci-Fi Tropes (and 5 That Should Be Shot Into Space)

Science fiction is a genre that’s full of storylines, plot devices, and techno-jargon that would be considered ridiculous in the real world. But these tropes are effective, so we keep using them.

Jupiter's oceanic moon Europa — a prime candidate for alien life — might glow in the dark, a NASA scientist discovered

A view of Jupiter's moon Europa, created from images taken by NASA's Galileo spacecraft in the 1990s. Reuters Jupiter's oceanic moon, Europa, might glow white, blue, and green in the dark, a NASA scientist discovered. Jupiter bombards Europa's icy surface with high-energy electrons that makes some types of ice glow. Mapping Europa's "mosaic" of nighttime glow could narrow down the chemical ingredients of the ice. NASA plans to send a spacecraft to Europa, where it could scan for th...

Fast radio bursts were once thought to be alien broadcasts. New research suggests the mysterious signals come from dead stars.

The super-dense remains of a dead star, as captured by NASA observatories. NASA/JPL-Caltech/ESA/CXC/Univ. of Ariz./Univ. of Szeged Astronomers have linked a mysterious fast radio burst to its source for the first time: a dead star within our galaxy. The dead star, known as a magnetar, released an explosion of X-rays and gamma rays with a single radio burst. The discovery suggests that these mysterious radio signals all come from magnetars.

NASA scientists discovered a 'very weird' molecule in the atmosphere of Saturn's moon Titan. It could point to alien life.

This near-infrared, color mosaic from NASA's Cassini spacecraft shows the sun glinting off of Titan's north polar seas. NASA/JPL-Caltech/Univ. Arizona/Univ. Idaho NASA astronomers discovered a "very weird little molecule" called cyclopropenylidene in the atmosphere of Saturn's moon Titan. Scientists think alien life could survive in Titan's underground salty ocean. This molecule could serve as a stepping stone to more complex molecules that play important roles in sustaining life. ...

Any aliens living around 1,004 nearby stars should be able to see the signs of life on Earth, a study says

An artist's impression shows exoplanet K2-18b, its host star, and an accompanying planet in the system. K2-18b is a super-Earth that hosts both water and temperatures that could support life. ESA/Hubble, M. Kornmesser Astronomers have identified 1,004 sun-like stars that could have Earth-like planets in their orbits. Any intelligent aliens on those exoplanets would be able to detect the signs of life on Earth. The researchers say these stars could be prime targets in the search for ali...

Aliens From These Worlds Could Be Watching Us Right Now

Since the 1990s, astronomers have catalogued more than 3,000 exoplanets using a fairly basic detection technique known as the transit method.

Watch the first 7 minutes of SyFy's new RESIDENT ALIEN show, starring Alan Tudyk

Here's the official blurb: Based on the Dark Horse comic, SYFY's RESIDENT ALIEN follows Harry, an alien played by Alan Tudyk ("Rogue One," "Firefly") that crash lands on Earth and passes himself off as a small-town human doctor. Arriving — Read the rest

CS Reviews The Making of Aliens by J.W. Rinzler

CS Reviews The Making of Aliens by J.W.

As it turns out, quite a bit. To that end, J.W. Rinzler, author of “The Making o...
