Daily Shot of Extraterrestrial Life Info!

After the jump will be two articles about recent UFO/Extraterrestrial related stuff that has happened recently... I am neither confirming nor denying my personal belief in UFOs, but I do think that readers might be interested in the reads!  Let me know what you think.

Are we about to get full disclosure about the presence of UFOs on Earth?
By Annalee Newitz 

This morning in Washington, DC, several former US military officers confirmed in a press conference that they had witnessed UFOs tampering with US nuclear missile control sites.

This press conference took place at the National Press Club in Washington, DC.

In these speeches, excerpted below, we hear about a 1967 UFO sighting in Montana, at a nuclear missile launch control facility. We hear about a 30-foot diameter object, covered in glowing red light, that was hovering outside the perimeter fence around the facility. It made no noise. Shortly thereafter, the missiles in the facility became "unlaunchable;" they had mysteriously shut down. It was called a "guidance and control system failure." Nobody at the base knew how to explain the event, and they were ordered never to talk about it. This was ultimately dubbed the "Echo Flight Incident."

Below we hear from two more witnesses about how the Air Force was telling officers with sufficient clearance that UFOs were interfering with nuclear missile sites. We also learn that Boeing was investigating UFOs in the 1970s, and were asked by the Air Force to stop doing it. Apparently a number of the UFOs were over Montana. We also hear that these UFOs were apparently common enough that the Air Force actually had a protocol for dealing with them. One person says he and his team witnessed a UFO landing in a canyon in Montana.

Given the appointment of an ambassador to extraterrestrials at the U.N. last week, we can't help but wonder whether we're on the cusp of a full disclosure from the US government that they've been in contact with creatures from other worlds.

At the end of the press conference this morning, a UFO researcher speculated that perhaps aliens were expressing concern that nukes could destroy the human race, or the planet. But the fact is, if these UFOs are piloted by aliens, nobody really knows what they're doing. One witness testified that he'd been told that the government had been in contact with aliens but that nobody knew what they wanted - the aliens had explained nothing, and given no signs of being interested in communicating further.



UN Names Official Space 'Host'
By Todd Venezia

E.T. -- phone the UN!

If an alien ever lands in your back yard and says, "Take me to your leader," the United Nations is giving you someone to call.

Mazlan Othman, an obscure Malaysian scientist, will be named as the Earth's official alien-spacecraft greeter. She's expected to announce her new role at a conference next week.

While Hollywood and most Americans assume the president of the United States would speak to aliens on behalf of earthlings, the United Nations thinks real extraterrestrials should get a more globalized response.
Othman, head of the UN Office for Outer Space Affairs, backs that view.

"The continued search for extraterrestrial communication, by several entities, sustains the hope that someday humankind will receive signals from extraterrestrials," she said in a recording of a recent speech, reported by the Sunday Times of London.

"When we do, we should have in place a coordinated response that takes into account all the sensitivities related to the subject. The UN is a ready-made mechanism for such coordination."

At the upcoming conference in Britain, Othman is expected to tell delegates that the recent discovery of hundreds of planets around other stars has made the detection of extraterrestrial life more likely than ever before -- and that means the United Nations must be ready to coordinate humanity's response to any "first contact."

Othman is an astrophysicist who got her Ph.D. in New Zealand.

Scientists who work with her say her job is essentially to be the mouthpiece for mankind.

"Othman is absolutely the nearest thing we have to a 'Take me to your leader' person," said professor Richard Crowther, a space law expert with the United Kingdom Space Agency.

Alien arrivals aren't the only cinematic-style issues that Othman's office investigates.

It's also in charge of deciding what to do if a deadly asteroid is found to be on a collision course with Earth.

The last UN official picked as Earth's official mouthpiece provoked controversy.

In 1977, two Voyager spacecraft went into space with recordings that were meant to be a message from Earth to intelligent life in the galaxy.

The voice on the message, however, belonged to then UN Secretary-General Kurt Waldheim, who was later discovered to have been an enthusiastic member of the Nazi party during World War II.



  1. This is really interesting! I think it's fascinating that these guys are willing to come out and tell people that they personally (or know someone who) saw UFOs

  2. Glad to know the U.N. is on top of such pressing issues *eye roll*

  3. Very, very interesting.
    I for one, would love to see more articles and posts pertaining to these subjects. I think it is something that Everyone can take interest in.

  4. The first one, I'll go with, but the one with appointing an ambassador, If I'm not mistaken, the scientist in question already said, to paraphrase: "it sounds cool, but it isn't true".

    I think we should wait a bit with this :D

  5. I remember a couple of years ago ther was some big to do about a UN meeting where they said they'd be announcing ET contact sometime soon, then, nothing...

  6. Neither am i but im still reading it xD

  7. awesome stuff! i wonder if they'll eat our brains.

  8. were so close to getting more UFO sightings i can feel it, i cant wait to punch one of their puny heads

  9. hmmm idk what to think of it yet,...

  10. I saw a video of this, on CNN or something I think. Weird shit. Maybe the ufos arent after weapons, rather after their captured brethren in area 51 O_o

  11. i can imagine that call "hey UN, yeah, you the giant group of impotent leaders from like a bunch of countries?" "yeah" "i got an alien in my backyard" "have a nice day sir"

  12. I was always into this kind of stuff as a kid, still am to an extent. I need to keep closer track of whats been going on lately, just for old times sake.

  14. There is definitely something else out there. We can all bet on that.

    Space is too big just for earth.

  15. I say post more on UFOs. I won't say my full opinion on them but I will say I am very interested in the subject.

  16. UFOs are junk. But keep posting more stuff; it's always interesting to read. I have a bunch of books on the lost city of atlantis :)
