Apollo 14 astronaut and the sixth man to walk on the moon Edgar Mitchell claims that aliens came to Earth to stop a nuclear war between America and Russia.

Continue reading for another video of him explaining the different alien species that currently visit Earth.
Finnish software developer Jerry Jalava lost part of his finger in a motorcycle accident, but rather than opt for a standard prosthetic, he decided to incorporate a USB key into the new digit. He loaded the 2GB with Billix distribution, CouchDBX, and Ajatus to run off the drive. When Jalava needs to use the drive, he simply pulls it off his left hand, plugs it in, making for a quite literal, "plug-and-play".

They 1,650-foot Sky Ladder appears to defy gravity at first, but it's just a clever illusion consisting of fireworks that stretch right up into the sky in Quanzhou, south-eastern China. It's the work of Cai Guoqiang, an artist who is originally from the city and now based in New York. The ladder, made of metal wire and aluminum, was filled with gunpowder and then attached to the bottom of a hot air balloon launched from a boat off the shore of nearby Huiyu Island. In related news, continue reading for an insane fireworks FAILS video compilation.
Another day, another UFO sighting, this time, a glowing orb flying above Earth near the ISS. This footage, captured by a NASA camera in June, shows a pink and white object soaring across space, before the feed was abruptly cut off. Immediately after the orb was spotted, this message appeared: "The High Definition Earth Viewing experiment is either switching cameras, or we are experiencing a temporary loss of signal with the International Space Station."

Another day, another strange Mars sighting. This time, people claim to have spotted a 'dark lady' looking out into space from the surface of Mars in a photo captured by NASA's Curiosity Rover. "We also see two arms that are lighter in color and what looks like a head with long hair. Its hard to tell if this is a living being, or a statue of a being from long ago. However, a statue that small would be eroded and destroyed easily, so it has a higher chance of being a living being. Also it is facing the Mars rover watching it from a distance," said UFO Sightings Daily. Click here to view the first image in this week's funny Facebook status updates gallery.

More often than not, photographs don't quite turn out the way we'd like them to, but sometimes things do work themselves out. For example, photographers trying to capture an image of the jet above probably didn't know that at least one of the pilots was going to eject due to an emergency or what not. Another example would be trying to photograph food, only to have a seagull come and snatch it right out of your hand during the photo. Continue reading to see more.
Another day, another oddity discovered on the Red Planet. This Alien Facehugger-like 'crab' can be seen in an image taken by the Mars rover Curiosity in front of a formation to a cave. "Those that send [images] to me are generally quite excited, as they claim that these frequently resemble something you wouldn't expect to find on the rusty, dusty surface of the red planet,' said Seth Shostak, director of the Centre for SETI Research.

Why bother building a normal tree house, when you can just stay in one of the Snake Tree Houses Luis at the Pedras Salgadas Park. Propped high on stilts, each home features a single bathroom, kitchen, double bed and sofa. The structure blends in with nature thanks to the slate and wood coverings. Sustainability and environmental impact were taken into account as well, with its reinforced insulation, low-energy lighting, along with solar panels.

A plane spotter recently captured an unidentified flying object overtaking a Virgin Atlantic flight at high-speed during take-off from New York's JFK airport. This peculiar object has led to speculation that it may be an extraterrestrial craft. "The person that saw this UFO at JFK films planes often and looks to catch UFOs on video. I even try to film UFOs myself often. Planning on a UFO hunt in NYC soon to hopefully air on LookNowTV. I thought this one doesn't look like a bug or another plane in the background," says Rick from LookNowTV. Continue reading to watch.
