  1. Bizarre Rogue 'Planet' with Incredible Auroras Puzzles Scientists August 6, 2018 Meghan Bartels An artist's depiction of the newly described object. Credit: Chuck Carter; NRAO/AUI/NSF/Caltech "A rogue, planet-size object 20 light-years away from Earth has stunned astronomers with its incredibly powerful magnetic field. The scientists found that the object's magnetic field is more than 200 times stronger than Jupiter's, which, in turn, is between 16 and 54 times stronger than Earth's, according to NASA. How the object, which scientists call SIMP J01365663+0933473, can maintain a magnetic field so strong, as well as generate spectacular auroras, is still unclear. "This particular object is exciting because studying its magnetic dynamo mechanisms can give us new insights on how the same type of mechanisms can operate in extrasolar planets — planets beyond our solar system," lead study author Melodie Kao, an astrophysicist at Arizona State University, said in a statement from the National Radio Astronomy Observatory published Aug. 2. [The Strangest Alien Planets We Know in Pictures] https://public.nrao.edu/news/planetary-mass-powerhouse/ https://www.space.com/159-strangest-alien-planets.html And it's not just the magnetic mechanism that's leaving scientists with questions right now — there are plenty of other mysteries about the object, which scientists first discovered in 2016. The object is what scientists call a brown dwarf. Nicknamed "failed stars," brown dwarfs are larger than planets, but not quite large enough to fuse hydrogen, the way stars do. The boundary line is still debated, but scientists tend to draw it at about 13 times the mass of Jupiter. Originally, scientists thought SIMP J01365663+0933473 was a gigantic, old brown dwarf. But further study showed that it is instead relatively young, at 200 million years old, and is only 12.7 times the mass of Jupiter. That research also showed that the planet is on its own, not orbiting a star. "This object is right at the boundary between a planet and a brown dwarf, or 'failed star,' and is giving us some surprises that can potentially help us understand magnetic processes on both stars and planets," Kao said in the statement. "We think these mechanisms can work not only in brown dwarfs, but also in both gas giant and terrestrial planets." The team is particularly excited by the new research because it relies in part on radio observations of the object's auroras — which means that radio telescopes may be able to identify new planets by their auroras." https://www.space.com/41390-rogue-brown-dwarf-auroras-magnetic-field.html One thing I can't get, they're saying 20 light years from Earth, but Mars is not 20 light years from Earth. The video below shows it being between the two. Cosmic Dreamer posted the following video on shout thread. Please watch and listen to what is said. In the following video they talk about "Blue". I believe "Blue" is that planet several of us were watching, over Turialba, in Costa Rica, several years ago and posted many pictures of, here on CHANI, on Neo's planetary thread. Marshall Masters called it "Blue". Strong Magnetic Interactions and the Heart
  2. Nasa finds (could have found) evidence of 'life on Mars': Curiosity rover picks up methane 'burps' that could be coming from alien organisms Dec. 16, 2014 Andrew Griffin Mars Curiosity rover picks up 'burps' of methane — which could be evidence of life on the planet "Evidence of life on Mars could have been found by Nasa's Curiosity Rover. Mysterious spikes of methane that cannot easily be explained by geology or other theories have been found by one of the instruments on the robot, which landed on the planet in 2012. Scientists can’t be sure what is causing the spikes, but it is possible that it could be very small, bacteria-like living organisms. If the gas is coming from living, breathing microbes then it would mark one of the biggest discoveries in history. On Earth, 95% of methane comes from microbial organisms. Scientists have said that the rover now has to test and re-test the possibility of life, ahead of a manned mission in 2020 that would look for the source of the methane." "Previous satellite observations have detected unusual plumes of methane on the planet, but none as extraordinary as the sudden "venting" measured at Gale Crater, where evidence suggests water once flowed billions of years ago. The laboratory onboard the rover has been sniffing methane in the atmosphere a dozen times in the last 12 months. In late 2013 and early 2014, the amount of methane flared up, and then receded. Other possible explanations include the Sun's rays degrading organic material that was left behind by meteors, Nasa scientists said at the press conference announcing the news. But that explanation still relies on the original material being deposited, they said." snip http://www.independent.co.uk/news/science/nasa-finds-evidence-of-life-on-mars-9929510.html
  3. http://au.ibtimes.com/articles/574079/20141126/woman-former-nasa-employee-humans-mars-1979.htm#.VHbaA9KUcuc This article might be of interest. During the Viking lander mission, a woman called Jackie claims to have seen 2 people, dressed in spacesuits walking towards the lander. She also said that the spacesuits looked protective, but were not like the ones our astronauts wore. There is a link to an audio file where Jackie talks about it. The article is short but there is also a second link to a youtube video where another man who worked for NASA is also making the same claim. This is important because the article appears in the Australian Edition of International Business Times, and unless I'm mistaken, I sense that these types of articles are purposefully being filtered into mainstream media, possibly with an aim to desensitise the general public. Most comments are negative, stupid, ignorant and recalcitrant - but that's the general population anyway, however there are some comments that are open minded.
  4. Martian Croc is a Crock But Celtic Cross Looks Credible Paul Seaburn October 23, 2014 "The Mars Curiosity and Opportunity rovers are sending back photographs of anomalies on the planet’s surface that may or may not be evidence of Martian life, alien visitors or just plain weird stuff. And they just keep coming. A photo from the Curiosity rover appears to show the head of a crocodile while one taken by Opportunity looks an awful lot like a Celtic cross. Lets view the crocodile first. British amateur astronomer Joe White analyzes NASA’s photo releases daily and he was the first to see the rock that looks like a crocodile in a picture sent back earlier this year. It was taken by the six-foot-high right hand side mast cam on the Curiosity Rover. Is it a statue of a real Martian croc that would be solid proof that the planet was once covered with enough water to keep reptiles happy? Not likely. Even Joe thinks it’s just an unusual rock." snip http://mysteriousuniverse.org/2014/10/martian-croc-is-a-crock-but-celtic-cross-looks-credible/
  5. How would you like to take a one way trip to a desolate planet? Live in a controlled stationary bubble? Permanently? Sounds like your cup of tea? Well this is for you! http://www.mars-one.com/
  6. I don't know about this one. All of this Mars stuff lately gives me a strange feeling. And if anyone understands the title to this article, please explain! What is meant by putting "a two-story building on Mars"? How can NASA put a two-story building on Mars? Its very own flying saucer. NASA's LDSD project aims to develop the capacity to land larger payloads on Mars, perhaps even humans. But first, NASA needs a way to decelerate capsules traveling at supersonic speeds. By Daniel B. Wood, Staff writer / April 10, 2014 NASA's Low Density Supersonic Decelerator (LDSD) mission scientists show their test vehicle to members of the media at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif., on Wednesday.

  7. Not sure if this was psoted on chani already ... Images captured by Opportunity show the mysterious rock 'appeared' on an outcrop that had been empty just 12 Martian days ('Sols') earlier 20 January 2014 A mysterious 'jelly doughnut rock' which appeared in front of the Opportunity rover is “like nothing we’ve ever seen before”, according to Mars exploration scientists at Nasa. Experts said they were “completely confused” by both the origins and makeup of the object, which is currently being investigated by Opportunity’s various measuring instruments. Astronomers noticed the new rock had “appeared” without any explanation on an outcrop which had been empty just days earlier. The rover has been stuck photographing the same region of Mars for more than a month due to bad weather, with scientists at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in California monitoring the images it sends. Nasa issued a Mars status report entitled “encountering a surprise”, and lead Mars Exploration rover scientist Steve Squyres told a JPL event it seems the planet literally “keeps throwing new things at us”. He said the images, from 12 Martian days apart, were from no more than a couple of weeks ago. “We saw this rock just sitting here. It looks white around the edge in the middle and there’s a low spot in the centre that’s dark red – it looks like a jelly doughnut. “And it appeared, just plain appeared at that spot – and we haven’t ever driven over that spot.” Squyres said his team had two theories on how the rock got there – that there’s “a smoking hole in the ground somewhere nearby” and it was caused by a meteor, or that it was “somehow flicked out of the ground by a wheel” as the rover went by. “We had driven a metre or two away from here, and I think the idea that somehow we mysteriously flicked it with a wheel is the best explanation,” Squyres said. Yet the story got even stranger when Opportunity investigated further. Squyres explained: “We are as we speak situated with the rover’s instruments deployed making measurements of this rock.

  8. Prospective Martians apply for one-way trip to red planet Author: By Jennifer Juarez August 9, 2013 CNN) - More than 100,000 people are eager to make themselves at home on another planet. They've applied for a one-way trip to Mars, hoping to be chosen to spend the rest of their lives on uncharted territory, according to an organization planning the manned missions. The Mars One project wants to colonize the red planet, beginning in 2022. There are financial and practical questions about this venture that haven't been clarified. Will there be enough money? Will people really be able to survive on Mars? But these haven't stopped some 30,000 Americans from signing up. You can see some of the candidates on the project's website, but they're not the only ones who have applied, said Bas Lansdorp, Mars One CEO and co-founder. http://www.clickorlando.com/lifestyle/technology/More-than-100-000-want-to-go-to-Mars/-/2242398/21404096/-/vmqh3az/-/index.html
