Opinion: TESS finding few planets

December 30, 2019

The Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite began taking pictures of stars more than 15 months ago.  It is now 2/3rds finished looking at the local sky.  (17 of 26 sectors observed).  Although it has identified over 1500 objects of interest, so far there have only been 37 confirmed planets discovered.

KEPLER on the other hand, discovered over 2,600 exoplanets.

My conclusion?  KEPLER is KING and we should build and launch a few more of them.

Since the DRAKE equation has been solved years ago,

https://gregdougall.wordpress.com/2018/10/16/drake-equation-beats-fermi-paradox/

N = 2,630,000

we still need to identify 55,000 more exoplanets in order to reach the statistical odds of finding a world with advanced intelligent life.

(2.63 million highly developed civilizations (1 in 59,316 star systems like ours host evolved human life)

The CHEOPS satellite, built by Swiss nerds, will try to calculate the densities of known exoplanets.  A secondary mission will be to try and spot potential clouds or atmospheres of local exoplanets, but it does not have a spectrometer on board.  What it will find remains to be seen.

 

First detection of sugars in meteorites gives clues to origin of life

November 20, 2019

CR 544

Billy:

Really gigantic. But something else: life has indeed independently evolved on Earth, as life has also, however, been brought to Earth by comets and meteors from outer space. Anyhow, so I was taught by your father, Sfath, as well as your daughter, Semjase, as well as Quetzal and yourself. This life was indeed so very tiny, only just in the form of micro-organisms. These micro-organisms, that is to say, microbes, are mostly single-celled organisms which can be, according to their tiny size, in the range of only a few microns, made visible by microscopic magnification. To that end, the question is, whether, in outer space and indeed by way of comets and meteors – perhaps by asteroids – such micro-organisms are still being brought to Earth? Sfath told me regarding comets that micro-organisms only reached Earth from these when the comet crashed to Earth or if it passed by very close to the planet or the planet ran into their tail. Only thereby can the microbes then reach the atmosphere and the geosphere, and if I remember correctly, such micro-organisms from outer space are called panspermia by the terrestrial scientists, or anyhow, so I have read it somewhere once. But there are various microbes, and it interests me. Can you say a few words about it?

Ptaah:

There are, if I am to use the terrestrial-scientific terms, eukaryotic micro-organisms which have a genuine nucleus and also exhibit DNA, being micro-algae, microscopically small fungi, protozoa. Next there are the prokaryotic micro-organisms which do not have a genuine nucleus, being archaebacteria, cyanobacteria and eubacteria. But additionally, there is still a third form, which certainly has cells, which however possess no intrinsic DNA, but which, in spite of that, can still replicate at several hundred degrees of heat. But I should not say any more about it, because these things are still unknown to terrestrial scientists. Moreover, they are not endemic to Earth, but only temporarily reach the Earth’s atmosphere and geosphere by way of comets and meteors, that is to say, through their disintegration.

Billy:

Disintegration: what do I need to understand by this? Perhaps a dissolution or some such, as, for example, with a comet’s tail, or by way of an explosion of a comet or meteorite in or over the terrestrial atmosphere? Disintegration indeed actually means as much as “splitting” or even “dissolving”.

Ptaah:

What you say is right, naturally.

An international team has found sugars essential to life in meteorites. The new discovery adds to the growing list of biologically important compounds that have been found in meteorites, supporting the hypothesis that chemical reactions in asteroids—the parent bodies of many meteorites—can make some of life’s ingredients. If correct, meteorite bombardment on ancient Earth may have assisted the origin of life with a supply of life’s building blocks.

The team discovered ribose and other bio-essential sugars including arabinose and xylose in two different meteorites that are rich in carbon, NWA 801 (type CR2) and Murchison (type CM2). Ribose is a crucial component of RNA (ribonucleic acid). In much of modern life, RNA serves as a messenger molecule, copying genetic instructions from the DNA molecule (deoxyribonucleic acid) and delivering them to molecular factories within the cell called ribosomes that read the RNA to build specific proteins needed to carry out life processes.

“Other important building blocks of life have been found in meteorites previously, including amino acids (components of proteins) and nucleobases (components of DNA and RNA), but sugars have been a missing piece among the major building blocks of life,” said Yoshihiro Furukawa of Tohoku University, Japan, lead author of the study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences November 18. “The research provides the first direct evidence of ribose in space and the delivery of the sugar to Earth. The extraterrestrial sugar might have contributed to the formation of RNA on the prebiotic Earth which possibly led to the origin of life.”

“It is remarkable that a molecule as fragile as ribose could be detected in such ancient material,” said Jason Dworkin, a co-author of the study at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland. “These results will help guide our analyses of pristine samples from primitive asteroids Ryugu and Bennu, to be returned by the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency’s Hayabusa2 and NASA’s OSIRIS-REx spacecraft.”

Is disclosure happening? Kinda Sort of

May 30, 2019

Disclosure is happening, as I see it. Over the past 12 years I have seen disclosure happening faster than ever. However, it is still moving at a snail’s pace. While headlines are making the news more and more, they still tend to end with a question mark, instead an exclamation point.

First let’s take a look at some headlines from the past few years:

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Disclosure isn’t necessarily just about UFOs and ET’s.  It is also about preparing the public consciousness for dangers related to personal health and natural disasters.  It basically involves stories that are so shocking, that many people will have difficulty learning the truth.  The biggest unreported story in the world today, as researcher and filmmaker Michael Horn would say, is the confirmed existence of extraterrestrial life.  And the only story bigger than that would be contact between those extraterrestrials and us.  I don’t mean microbes; I mean people. There are millions of human races just in our local galaxy, in addition to those beyond it.

.
Then we have the mass media propaganda form of disclosure.  This is done through fictional TV shows and movies. Some blatant examples of this are super hero movies that feature humans from other planets.  For example:

Thor
Superman
Guardians of the Galaxy
Avengers
Captain Marvel
Black Panther (intraterrestrial)
Aquaman (intraterrestrial)
Transformers
Valerian
Star Trek, Star Wars franchises

And many others…

Part of disclosure is acknowledging that our planet has never been physically attacked by extraterrestrials (at least in the past 2000 years), despite what the movies often portray.

.
Next we have the public announcements of space-based progress and discoveries such as:

.
Discovery of water on the Moon, Mars, Ceres, Enceladus, comets, etc.
The advent of reusable rockets
The discovery and identification of nearly 4000 planets outside of our solar system  (based on this new data, we can finally extrapolate that there are billions of planets in the Goldilocks zone)
More companies launching rockets successfully
Visible fireballs, meteorites, asteroids, including probes on and around asteroids, moons, planets, etc.
Bigger and better ground, air, and space based telescopes
Ongoing research aboard the International Space Station
Creation of a US Space Force branch of the military

.
So what is disclosure of the E.T. / UFO issue?
To me, it is the recognition of thousands of stories and pieces of physical evidence that could be accepted in a court of law, in order to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that extraterrestrial objects, beings, and human beings have entered our airspace, our oceans, our mountains, and our lands in order to observe and clearly not to attack.  At least one person can provide evidence of physical, face to face, deliberate, and ongoing contacts with human extraterrestrials from more than one star or planetary system.

A real disclosure would have to include the admission that the cover up of ET UFOs began with world governments and militaries beginning with sightings in World War I from 1914-1918.  Since then, various events have been prevented from being disclosed.

The major problem with the whole issue was that governments and militaries did not know a thing about who was piloting the craft or probes, nor where they came from. The reaction from militaries was to feel threatened, but also truly helpless and defenseless against a far superior vehicle or object.  Disclosure must also include the assumption that several governments own pieces of extraterrestrial hardware, or hardware that is so technologically advanced, it could be mistaken for something not of this world.

We are entering a time when the generally accepted history that we teach to our children and to ourselves, is in dire need of updating.

That is why I compiled the galactic history of humans of the last 12 billion years, which is not a theory, but historical fact.  Our ancient ancestors came here from various specific star systems many times with many people over the past 300,000 years and even earlier. Many of these extraterrestrial emigrants died here or on their way here, but many also survived, arrived, and mated with primitive earth peoples which created a more modern iteration of the primitive neanderthal human. The DNA of all 9 billion people on earth consists of a mix of intelligent and sometimes belligerent human extraterrestrial races.  But that doesn’t mean we have super powers.  In fact it includes a major flaw.

We’re still belligerent, and we won’t be intelligent until we understand
this entire story, because the lessons that can be learned can prevent
many foreseen disasters and also possible extinction events that would end the lives of some or all 9 billion human beings on planet earth.

I am interested to hear what you have to say about the progress of disclosure.  Please share your thoughts in the comment section below.

Michael Horn to Present NASA Discoveries Confirming Billy Meier UFO Case Is Real

May 21, 2019

https://finance.yahoo.com/news/michael-horn-present-nasa-discoveries-124300302.html

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz., May 21, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Science researcher and documentary filmmaker, Michael Horn, will present evidence at Contact in the Desert that discoveries by NASA, JPL, USGS, etc., confirm ongoing, direct contacts between Billy Meier, a reclusive Swiss man, and an extraterrestrial race. The extensive documentation has already been provided to scientists, such as Harvard professor Avi Loeb, considered the most academically distinguished scientist involved in the search for extraterrestrial life.

Billy Meier's UFO photos also deemed authentic by Joe Tysk, former top investigator/supervisor for USAF Office of Special Investigations (OSI) .

The Language of Science

During the course of researching thousands of pages of information Meier claims the extraterrestrials provided, Horn and other researchers have found over 250 examples of specific, previously unknown scientific information that Meier published up to more than 60 years before “official discovery”. Ironclad proof that Meier published the information first is established by internationally recognized copyrights.

Conveyed in the clear language of science, and subsequently confirmed by NASA discoveries, is information about every planet in the solar system, as well as black holes, the speed of gravity, the impending threat posed by asteroid Apophis, and terrestrial environmental, seismic and volcanic events, etc.

In his presentation, Horn will also show Meier’s pre-digital era UFO photos and films, which were authenticated by independent photographic and special effects experts beginning in the late 1970s. In 2017, former top investigator-supervisor for the USAF Office of Special Investigations (OSI), Joe Tysk, analyzed Meier’s even earlier UFO evidence from 1964 and concluded that it was indisputably authentic.

Mars

In addition to providing the evidence to Prof. Loeb, Horn also brought it to NASA-USGS scientist Ken Herkenhoff, who specializes in Mars astrophotography. In a recent conversation, Herkenhoff told Horn, “I should say that I have long hoped that we have or will be contacted by advanced civilizations and that we could learn from them, and that the statistics of potentially habitable planets in our galaxy suggests that there are probably many advanced civilizations.”

Regarding Meier’s information about lightning on Mars, Herkenhoff said, “I have not heard of any observations of lightning on Mars.” It’s not widely known that NASA first observed lightning on Mars in 2009…22 years after Meier verifiably published it, in 1987.

Our Future Survival

Horn disagrees that extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence. “While Meier’s evidence is certainly extraordinary, the term itself is prejudicial. Wasn’t it once ‘extraordinary’ to claim that the earth moved around the sun? Testing any claims using scientific methodologies will determine the actual facts. The internet allows anyone to examine Meier’s evidence, check copyright dates, etc., and use today’s state-of-the-art software – not available until decades after Meier took his UFO photos – to analyze and authenticate his evidence.

“If deemed genuine, we are now confronted with the most important – and unexpected – discovery in science and human history, the confirmed existence of, and ongoing contact with, intelligent extraterrestrial life. Should that be the case, we will want to pay particular attention to the warnings they have provided about coming environmental, geopolitical and financial events that may threaten our future survival. And I think this may be the underlying…reason for the Meier contacts.”

NOTE: See this page, for a sampling of over 50 corroborations by NASA, JPL, USGS, MIT, etc., of the hundreds of examples of prophetically accurate scientific information in the Billy Meier UFO contacts.

Former NASA kook unknowingly corroborates speed of light info

April 29, 2019

Why do I call them a kook?  Because they were interviewed by the pathetic frauds at Thirdphaseofmoon, the UFO disinfo youtube channel, who only very rarely reveal the Meier case, and will post any and every fake UFO video there is without analysis.

disclosure drudge 4.29.19

And I refuse to post the link, which leads to one of those online Brittish tabloids that call this strange or weird news, and then attack your computer browser with dozens of invasive tracking cookies.    There was a link at the VERY END of the article about a man who claims to have traveled in time and took photos of dinosaurs.  hmm…

But this lady who used to work for NASA made the DrudgeReport, albeit at the very bottom corner, talking about how time travel might be possible based on the speed of light that is decreasing based on laser light measurements.

Now where have I heard that before?

http://www.futureofmankind.co.uk/Billy_Meier/Contact_Report_143

19. Already in this Transformation Belt, time begins to run into the past, from which aging originates.
20. This means that in this Transformation Belt, chronons begin to exist, then are aging and becoming tachyons and are representing the past. By the way, tachyons may be proven by the terrestrial scientists in a short time.
21. At the same time, the speed also decreases from the Transformation Belt in an irregular manner but in a certain half-life.
22. The irregular decrease in speed, which amounts to 147 times the speed of light in its starting point and expansion point, comes about through mutually self-influencing and different time streams that have already changed in their speed.

Students of the Meier material have long known that:

a. the speed of light has a half life

Which was revealed in Contact 143 which took place on…

March 22nd, 1981.

and

b. time travel is possible

http://www.futureofmankind.co.uk/Billy_Meier/Asket%27s_Explanations_-_Part_2

3. I have already explained to you the possibility of time travel into the past or future.
4. In accordance with our technology, we are in a position to undertake such trips and to now also employ them for the benefit of your coming mission.
5. As it has been decided, you will travel back with me into various epochs in order to be able to examine the truth of events there and then and to recognise that your traditions and the assertions of your religious antiquity researchers, and so forth, are false and unreal and only in very rare cases correspond to the actual occurrences.

Maybe in a few hundred years, NASA scientists and UFO skeptics will catch up to the rest of us.

Japanese lander touches down on Ryugu asteroid

March 11, 2019

The Hayabusa 2 spacecraft briefly touched down on asteroid Ryugu on Feb. 21, 2019, in order to collect samples by firing a bullet into the surface.

Descent was relatively slow, but it looks much faster in the video released by the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency because it runs at five times normal speed. Because of the low gravity, when the 4.4-pound (2-kilogram) projectile fired into the surface, ejecta quickly encompassed the whole camera view.

Hovering at a position of about 28 feet (8.5 meters), the spacecraft let itself free fall to the surface. Once the bullet was fired with samples hopefully collected inside the sampling device, the spacecraft fired thrusters to climb back out of the asteroids tiny gravity well.

According to JAXA, the Hayabusa 2 team is confident samples were collected. However, another touch-and-go attempt is planned for April. The hope is for up to 100 milligrams of material to be brought back to Earth by December of 2020.

Hayabusa 2 is slated to stay in orbit around the asteroid until December 2019. The 1,300-pound (600-kilogram) spacecraft was launched in December 2014 and achieved orbit around Ryugu in June 2018.

Kepler K2 finds 28 more exoplanets

March 11, 2019
.
Dear Exoplanet Explorers,
.
We’re very excited to let you know that we just published a new list of 28 new planet candidates identified thanks to your collective efforts!
.
EEplot
 
.
These planets are a varied bunch, with sizes ranging from two thirds that of Earth to  those which are more than twice the size of Neptune. All are quite some distance from their stars, so  are most likely not habitable – but don’t despair, as they will help us understand planet formation. You can read more here: http://www.jonzink.com/blogEE.html
.
These new exoplanet candidates range in size from ~2/3 the radius of Earth to nearly twice the radius of Neptune. As seen in the figure above, most of these planets are similar in orbital period and planet radius to the bulk population of K2 confirmed and candidate planets. However, this list provides 9 potentially rocky planets with radii less than twice that of Earth which is where we think planets transition from being primarily rocky like Earth and have a thick gaseous atmosphere like Neptune. The radius cut off for rocky planets remains somewhat unclear as the composition of the planet is the important feature to consider here.
.
Unfortunately, transiting planets only provide us with the planets radius. Nevertheless, optimistic estimates suggest that planets smaller than twice the radius of Earth may be rocky. For further reading on this topic check out the associated paper! As the search continues for habitable planets, these rocky planets are of unique interest as they potentially mimic the environment we experience here on Earth. The planets in our list are outside the habitable zone, but there are some candidates that are close. We need better stellar properties, which might indeed show that some planets could be in the habitable zone.
ee 28 combin
If you’re missing the search for new planets while Exoplanet Explorers is taking a break, please help our friends over at Planet Hunters with their search through data from TESS, NASA’s newest planet-seeking mission. You can get involved at www.planethunters.org.
 
Thanks for all your help!
