- Forget flying cars…just get some wings and a pair of jet engines, and fly like this French rocketeer. Some video of this flight would rock.
- Fact-checking Dan Brown’s research. No, not the Davinci book – space.com takes a look at his astrobiology novel Deception Point (Amazon US only).

- The question is: is there anybody out there? I prefer to be comfortably numb.
- Linda Moulton Howe finds high strangeness in soil and plants at an Ohio crop formation.
- Mysterious cattle mutilations – do they still happen? Apparently so. I wouldn’t be a cow for quids.
- Explanation of an alleged UFO video.
- Conversely, what about the failure of UFO skepticism.
- It may be required, when we start talking about photographs of orbs.
- Struggling farmers note – forget the crops and cattle and just build yourself a UFO watchtower.

- If that sounds like big news, what about the first Americans coming from Australia? I claim dominion on behalf of my country.

- Gordon Rugg, the apparent cracker of the Voynich Manuscript, is the scientific method man.
- How did hundreds of bronze coins end up at the bottom of the Dead Sea?

Thanks Pam and Bill.
