How ‘Alien: Blackout’ Fits Into ‘Alien: Isolation,’ Perhaps ‘Alien: Isolation 2’

“Alien: Blackout” feels like a game made for on-the-go gadgets, delivering a tense experience through its platform of choice in a way that better draws players into the xenophobic world of Amanda Ripley. That the game — which many hoped would be a sequel to computer and console title “Alien: Isolation” — was made for […]

Mysterious repeating signal from distant galaxy detected by new radio telescope

Such an event has only been reported once before, by a different telescope. ... The CHIME observatory, located in British Columbia's Okanagan Valley, consists of four 100-metre-long, semi-cylindrical antennas, which scan the entire northern sky each day.

Michio Kaku: Let’s not advertise our existence to aliens

If advanced alien civilizations do exist, theoretical physicist Michio Kaku asks: Why would they want anything to do with us? It would be like an academic talking to a squirrel, he suggests, and he has a great point. Hollywood and science fiction novels have conditioned us for years to believe that aliens either want to hang out on our intellectual level and learn from us... or destroy us. If alien life really does have the technology and know-how to make it all the way here, perhaps we should j...

Comet, Meteor or Alien Spacecraft

Since its first sighting in 2017, “Oumuamua” has puzzled scientists and researchers. Its strange propulsion-like movement and determined trajectory call into question whether the long, flat object is merely a comet or a meteorite—despite that being the more mundane, and maybe likely, conclusion. The way the object sped up as it passed the sun has researchers most puzzled. “Lightsails,” the solar-powered starships that Breakthrough Starshot plans …

UFO Shocker: $37 million in debt for Blink 182 ex-singer Tom DeLonge's 'aliens' project

Former Blink 182 frontman Tom DeLonge got involved in a shady UFO conspiracy business, where for a few hundred bucks, people who are afraid of aliens could learn "the truth" that “they” (the government) do not want you to know. The project is on track to lose $37 million this year, if we're reading their latest SEC filing correctly. Bummer, Tom. We found this story in a deep-dive piece today by Eric Berger at Ars Technica, who describes how he's been following Tom DeLonge, the ex-Blink 182 ...

A quarter century into the exoplanet revolution

In 1969, half a century ago, astronauts first landed on Earth’s sole moon. The first successful robotic landers touched down on the much more distant Venus and Mars in 1970 and 1976, respectively, and in the same decade spacecraft flybys provided the first, fleeting close-ups of Jupiter and Saturn. It was not until two decades later, however, that missions that explicitly targeted these giant planets revealed how fundamentally distinct these worlds are from our own.The Galileo satellite started ...

Why This Star-Packed Region of Space Is Likely Devoid of Life

Globular clusters are among the most fascinating celestial phenomena in the galaxy, packing a hideous amount of stars into a relatively tiny region of space.

These ‘Aliens’ Posters Are Out of This World

The debate about whether Ridley Scott’s Alien or James Cameron’s Aliens is the better movie will likely rage on until humanity is eventually wiped out by a real life species of acid-bleeding killer aliens.
