What is being described as “critical geometry” in the solar system could cause a devastating earthquake on our planet, conspiracy theorists have warned. This is because Venus, Mercury and the Sun are apparently specifically positioned in our galactic neighbourhood in a way their gravity can tug on our planet. The ensuing push and shove from

Extraterrestrial life, that familiar science-fiction trope, that kitschy fantasy, that CGI nightmare, has become a matter of serious discussion, a “risk factor”, a “scenario”. How has ET gone from sci-fi fairytale to a serious scientific endeavour modelled by macroeconomists, funded by fiscal conservatives and discussed by theologians?   Because, following a string of remarkable discoveries

Most of the time, the Atacama desert — the driest non-polar place on Earth, sandwiched between two mountain ranges in western Chile — is gritty, cracked, and red. The desert gets less than 1.5 centimeters of rain per year, the equivalent of six or so hours of drizzle. Sometimes it doesn’t get any at all.

Hubble measurements confirm there’s something weird about how the universe is expanding. New results from the Hubble Space Telescope have deepened one of the biggest mysteries in astronomy. In picture: The Large Magellanic Cloud with a Hubble close-up inset. Image by NASA, ESA, Adam Riess, and Palomar Digitized Sky Survey Astronomers know that the Universe

In the bewildering quagmire that is the gas between the stars, the Hubble Space Telescope has identified evidence of ionised buckminsterfullerene, the carbon molecule known colloquially as “buckyballs”.   Containing 60 carbon atoms arranged in a soccer ball shape, buckminsterfullerene (C60) occurs naturally here on Earth – in soot. But in 2010, it was also detected

A bizarre freak weather phenomenon has struck the Middle East, unleashing heavy snowfall, extreme floods and “apocalyptic” dust storms. The mysterious and extreme weather has caused bizarre ‘ice floods’ to sweep across deserts in Saudi Arabia, Iran, and the United Arab Emirates. The freezing plunge in temperatures has perplexed meteorologists in a region that is

The frigid Southern Ocean is well known for its brutal storms, which can sink ships and trigger coastal flooding on distant tropical islands. Now, a new study suggests the biggest waves there — already the world’s largest — are getting bigger, thanks to faster winds. Waves in the stormy Southern Ocean have grown an average

The wayward planet Nibiru is believed to pass through our solar system on an incredibly elliptical orbit every 3,600 years or so. When Nibiru arrives in the system, it’s presence unleashes monstrous gravity waves that trigger earthquakes, volcanoes and tsunamis. Purveyors of the bizarre Nibiru conspiracy believe warning signs of the planet’s arrival have been

This year’s long and record-breaking winter has left many fields of Northwest America either frozen or flooded much later than normal and, as a result, farmers are struggling to get their seeds sown on time. “The longest winter ever”: Farmers in America’s Northwest face 2 month planting delays. “We’ve had the longest winter ever,” said

Alien hybrids born from a mixed parentage will survive humans on Earth when climate change ravages the planet. The bizarre theory was presented by Korean lecturer Dr Young-hae Chi, who teaches at Oxford’s Oriental Institute. The Oxford academic is a firm believer in the theory of alien visitation and frequent abductions by extraterrestrials. He has

This video and audio illustrates a seismic event detected by NASA’s InSight on April 6, 2019, the 128th Martian day, or sol, of the mission. Three distinct kinds of sounds can be heard, all of them detected as ground vibrations by the spacecraft’s seismometer, called the Seismic Experiment for Interior Structure (SEIS): There’s noise from

In February of 2016, scientists at the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory (LIGO) announced the first-ever detection of gravitational waves (GWs). Since then, multiple events have been detected, providing insight into a cosmic phenomena that was predicted over a century ago by Einstein’s Theory of General Relativity.   A little over a year ago, LIGO was

How curious that Lloyds of London has excluded from their policies any negative health effects caused by wi-fi technologies. Now, WHY would Lloyds leave all that money on the table if these technologies are so safe? And, why are other insurance companies following Lloyds’ lead? 5G technology health problems: Lloyds and other insurers refuse to

This photo was taken by Nathan Province from a C-17 at about 40 minutes from Oahu, Hawaii in July 2018. The unusual glow is from a sun angle below the horizontal plane illuminating shallow altocumulus clouds, generating a remarkable, unexpected view. Very strange sky over Oahu, Hawaii in July 2018.
