Fans of the Alien movies are most likely familiar with the Caterpillar P-5000 Powered Work Loader. It’s essentially a mechanized exoskeleton used for lifting and moving heavy objects using hydraulic claws similar to those found on forklifts. How does it work? One joint of each claw is placed under the package, while the other one is used to clamp down on top of it. The Hacksmith managed to build a real-life version of this exoskeleton.

NASA administrator Bill Nelson recently held a talk at the University of Virginia and made some interesting remarks about a possible connection between military sightings of unidentified flying objects and the search for intelligent extraterrestrial life. He’s already talked to the US Navy pilots who spotted the infamous Tic-Tac UFO and that left him asking himself how we become as we are and whether if those are those same conditions out there in a universe that has billions of other suns as well as billions of other galaxies. Read more for to see him talking about this subject and for additional information.
Researchers from the National Tsing Hua University in Taiwan, led by Tiger Yu-Yang Hsiao, searched for evidence of Dyson spheres, which is a megastructure that completely encompasses a star and captures a large percentage of its power output. However, this time, they were seeking an “inverse Dyson sphere” (IDS), which could technically harvest energy from a black hole in a similar fashion. Read more for two videos about Dyson spheres and additional information.
NASA Administrator Bill Nelson believes that humans may not be alone in the galaxy after reading the classified version of the U.S. intelligence report on Navy pilots’ repeated sightings of UFOs. He states that the pilots saw something, they tracked it, locked their radar onto it before following the object. The UAP (Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon) would then suddenly move quickly from one location to another. Read more for two videos and a bonus.

It’s true, the official China National Space Administration (CNSA) Twitter account allegedly has confirmed the discovery of intelligent life, and sparked conversations about it being from another world. Currently, China’s Tianwen-1 is orbiting the Red Planet, and next month, it will drop a lander carrying its rover to the Martian surface. The orbiter and rover will then explore the geology and soil characteristics of Mars, including searching for water and ice. However, China is also using a Five-hundred-meter Aperture Spherical radio Telescope (FAST) in the search for intelligent life. Read more for a video on the telescope, a bonus video and additional information.
Harvard professor Avi Loeb believes that we were visited by an extraterrestrial object in 2017. Some may already be familiar with the interstellar object–named “Oumuamua,” which was first observed through the Pan-STARRS telescope at Hawaii’s Haleakala Observatory three years ago. Loeb states there are two things that stand out about Oumuamua, its unnatural cigar-like dimensions (5-10 times longer than it was wide) and the movement, which excessively pushes away from the sun.

There’s a lot going in within the US government right now, whether it be an agreement on how to distribute vaccines or attending normal business of creating the legislation that keeps the country funded, but one item may surprise you. When President Trump signed the $2.3 trillion COVID-19 relief and federal funding bill, a “committee comment” attached to the annual intelligence authorization act includes language that “directs the [director of national intelligence]…to submit a report within 180 days of the date of enactment of the Act, to the congressional intelligence and armed services committees on unidentified aerial phenomena.” Read more for a video of mysterious cloud spotted in the Santa Clara skies recently and additional information.

Astronomers searching for extraterrestrial life are currently investigating an mysterious radio signal that appears to have come from the direction of Proxima Centauri, the nearest star to the sun. It was detected during 30 hours of observations by the Parkes telescope in Australia in April and May last year. Their current analysis of the beam has not yet confirmed whether it could be just ground-based equipment or a passing satellite. Read more for two videos and additional information.
Haim Eshed, 87-year-old former head of Israel’s Defense Ministry’s space directorate, claims that humans have been in contact with extraterrestrials from a “galactic federation.” He says that cooperation agreements were signed between the species, and lists an underground base in the depths of Mars where there are American astronauts and intelligent extraterrestrial representatives. What kind of contract? Well, apparently just one that allowed the other worldly beings to conduct experiments here on Earth. Read more for a video and additional information.
Helicopter pilot Bret Hutchings discovered a bizarre monolith in the Utah desert that looks to be straight from 2001: A Space Odyssey. After spotting this structure in the middle of nowhere, the crew landed to take a closer look, and even stood atop each other’s shoulders to reach the top of it. Standing between 10ft and 12ft tall, the monolith appeared to be securely fastened to the ground and made from some sort of metal. Read more for a video and additional information.
