Beyond Earth, Beyond The Universe...


Hubble telescope video of Saturn's aurorae

"The aurora images captured by the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) were made possible by a rare chance to see the planet with its rings edge-on and both poles in view. It takes Saturn almost 30 years to orbit the Sun, and during that time such a picture opportunity occurs only twice." Story courtesy of the Daily Mail

"Immanuel Kant declared in 1781 that space and time were real, but only indeed as properties of the mind. These algorithms are not only the key to consciousness, but why space and time − indeed the properties of matter itself - are relative to the observer." But a new theory by Robert Lanza, called
Biocentrism 'suggests that space and time may not be the only tools that can be used to construct reality.'

    Next Stop, Planet Earth...



    BBC reports that the 'chance of discovering life on other worlds is greater than ever', calling it a "a mathematical certainty". Britain's leading astronomer. Lord Rees, the president of the Royal Society and Astronomer Royal, says 'such a discovery would be a moment which would change humanity.' Hopefully, to expedite this change, we're discovered first...if we haven't been already.
