Yesterday’s event in Russia was a powerful, impressive and rare.    Scientists are currently claiming that the explosion, apparently caused by a meteor, over Russian yesterday had the force of 30 Hiroshima bombs.  But 100 years ago in a region of Siberia called Tunguska an explosion occurred that equaled 1,000 Hiroshima bombs.  Yup, you read that right!  1,000 Hiroshima bombs.

Scientists Warn of Alien Apocalypse!

Astronomers Seth Baum, Jacob Haqq-Misra and Shawn Domagal-Goldman, who’ve been searching for extraterrestial life most of their profession life, have just published a study warning that may have been a mistake.  They argue that aliens may behave like we have when discovering a new species:

Just as we did to those beings, the extraterrestrials might proceed to kill, infect, dissect, conquer, displace or enslave us, stuff us as specimens for their museums or pickle our skulls and use us for medical research.

This study, which appeared in the journal Acta Astronautica, goes on to warn:

A core concern is that ETI will learn of our presence and quickly travel to Earth to eat or enslave us.

Eat or enslave us?!?  We think these guys have been watching to many episodes of “The Twilight Zone”.

Anniversary for the Planet Neptune!

Posted in Weird News, Weird Science with tags , , , , , , , on July 8, 2011 by ghostradioworld

Neptune doesn’t get much love.  It isn’t the biggest planet.  It doesn’t have cool rings.  It’s not the smallest.  Or the closest.  Or the fastest.  And H.G. Wells didn’t imagine conquers streaming from it’s surface.

In fact, you ask most people to offer some distinguishing feature about the planet.  They can’t.  It’s current dubious honor is being the most distant planet now that Pluto has been demoted to a “dwarf planet”.  Astronomers may like that.  No one else does.

But this week it gets a celebration nonetheless.  Because July 12, 2011 marks its first completion of a passage around the sun since it was first discovered in 1846.  Yup, it takes 164.79 earth years to go around the sun.

Happy Anniversary, Neptune? What are you going to do to celebrate?
