A big welcome to new readers. Don’t be shy, post your thoughts.
- Linda Moulton Howe is keeping us updated on the drone caught on camera. Even if a fake, I love the wavy wires at the top, very creative.
- The Heavy Stuff says media coverage of the Chicago O’Hare UFO is fading and might disappear entirely before its one year anniversary this November.
- In the near future, you could be reading TDG on a paper-thin, bendable display screen. Imagine take-away coffee cups.
- NASA’s Spitzer Space Telescope has helped scientists learn what the weather is like on two distant, exotic worlds. I bet they’re really spying on alien women.
- The latest images from the Mars Reconaissance Orbiter reveal what look like Martian cave entrances. Women are from Venus, Cavemen are from Mars.
- Not to be outdone, the ESA’s Mars Express has captured breathtaking images of the Deuteronilus Mensae region.
- Could a planet orbiting Gliese 581, 1.5 time the radius of Earth and in the Goldilocks zone, harbour life?
- More information on the comet believed to have wiped out mammoth populations almost 13000-years-ago… and possibly a lost civilisation?
- Could Bulgaria’s Late Bronze Age temples, mentioned by Herodotus, be older than Egypt’s pyramids?
- Archaeologists in Greece have discovered thousands of miniature clay pots and statuettes possibly dedicated to the Three Graces.
- Roman soldiers recently descended on the Scottish Parliament, calling for the Antonine Wall to gain World Heritage Status. Romane ite domum.
- Norwegians could soon be enjoying safer, cleaner nuclear power using thorium. No wonder Rudolf the Reindeer’s nose shines so bright.
- Scientists have observed ants placing themselves across holes to provide a bridge for their fellows. Proof the wrong species evolved to dominate the planet.
- Lucky visitors to the American Museum of Natural History can catch an exhibition examining the possible origins of mythical creatures.
- Professional ghost hunters have conducted a seance to catch a ghost in Melbourne’s Old Treasury Building. It might have been me, I’m very pale.
- In London, Spiral is a new organisation that plans to collect video evidence of the paranormal. Looks like a great gig.
- Deepak Rao, India’s Uri Geller, has wowed a packed auditorium with demonstrations of psychic abilities. Turn his show into a Bollywood bhangra extravaganza and I’m there with bells on.
- Nothing entertains like Pravda: did Nazi bonzes study extraterrestrial technology?
- An 11-year-old boy claims to have killed a wild pig weighing over 1000 pounds and measuring 9 feet 4 inches from snout to tail. I’m glad this pig can’t fly.
- Roswell officials want to create a UFO-themed amusement park including a simulated alien abduction ride. Must be the bouncing castle.
- Protests are planned to disrupt the opening of a Creationist Museum in the USA. I can’t imagine Richard Dawkins wearing tie-dye and flashing the peace symbol.
Quote of the Day:
A poet’s eye, in fine frenzy rolling,
Doth glance from heaven to earth, from earth to heaven;
And as imagination bodies forth
The form of things unknown, the poet’s pen
Turns them to shapes and gives to airy nothing
A local habitation and a name.
Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night’s Dream
