REPEATED RADIO SIGNALS COMING FROM GALAXY 1.5 BILLION LIGHT YEARS AWAY, SCIENTISTS ANNOUNCE
Scientists pick up large number of blasts over a few weeks
Andrew Griffin 6 hours ago


quote:

Scientists have spotted repeated blasts of radio signals coming from deep in space. The breakthrough is only the second time scientists have seen such a repeating radio burst. It both deepens the mystery and offers a potential opportunity to finally understand what might be throwing out the burst from a galaxy billions of light years away. Fast radio bursts have been speculated to be the result of everything from exploding stars to transmissions from aliens. But they have remained entirely mysterious, with little evidence at all of where they might be coming from.


quote:

Probably most exciting of the new bursts is one that scientists saw repeat six times, apparently from the same location. Of the more than 60 fast radio bursts detected so far, only one of them has ever repeated.



quote:

Of the 13 new blasts that were picked up, at least seven of them were recorded at 400 MHz – the lowest frequency of any yet discovered. That suggests there might be even more of them, too low to be picked up by CHIME. “[We now know] the sources can produce low-frequency radio waves and those low-frequency waves can escape their environment, and are not too scattered to be detected by the time they reach the Earth. That tells us something about the environments and the sources. We haven’t solved the problem, but it’s several more pieces in the puzzle,” says Tom Landecker, a CHIME team member from the National Research Council of Canada.

What was it you were talking about about your anniversary or renew time when you turned a certain age? Maybe I did this as well, what do you need to know to tell me if I did or not? but not too funny.

I know Area 51. I don’t know if I should say many times, but lots and lots of times. I know Area 51 quite well, I know what they’ve done there,” he said. “I don’t know in recent years, of course, but I know what went on there.

The former senator that is rumored, or in some circles credited, to have been the catalyst for AATIP/AAWSAP has returned after a hiatus due to medical issues. In the history of the UFO subject, Senator Harry Reid may have commented more openly than any other politician in history. He has done a number of interviews that bluntly speak of UFOs and their importance to the United States and the world.

If one really delves into this topic with an open mind, the following can be inferred:

The phenomena crosses into topics including:

Conciousness research
Quantum mechanics
The nature of “reality”
Our advancing tech (Moore’s law with boosts here and there...)

The documents above hint at that...

‘Project Blue Book’ Is Based on a True U.F.O. Story. Here It Is.

By Ralph Blumenthal and Leslie Kean
Jan. 15, 2019



Same authors of the article in the OP...

quote:

We viewed the first six episodes from the standpoint of writers who have long worked on the serious side of U.F.O.s. We broke the December 2017 New York Times exclusive on a secret Pentagon program investigating the phenomenon, with our colleague Helene Cooper. Leslie Kean wrote the Times 2010 best-seller “U.F.O.s: Generals, Pilots and Government Officials Go On the Record.” Ralph Blumenthal has written about U.F.O.s for Vanity Fair as well as The Times.


quote:

Nonetheless, melodrama aside, the real story is there: Project Blue Book was the code name for an Air Force program set up in 1952, after numerous U.F.O. sightings during the Cold War era, to explain away or debunk as many reports as possible in order to mitigate possible panic and shield the public from a genuine national security problem: an apparently technological phenomenon that was beyond human control and was not Russian, yet represented an unfathomable potential threat.


quote:

While Hynek was involved, Blue Book compiled reports of 12,618 sightings of unidentified flying objects, of which 701 remain unexplained to this day. But what’s most important to study during that era is what occurred outside Project Blue Book, to the extent that it has been revealed. When we reported on the Pentagon’s Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program, which began in 2007, we offered a glimpse into a similar scenario today: military cases being investigated and filmed without the public knowing. This time, however, there was no public agency to accommodate reports of incidents, even when hundreds of witnesses were involved.


quote:

It all began in 1947. Lt. General Nathan Twining, the commander of Air Materiel Command, sent a secret memo on “Flying Discs” to the commanding general of the Army Air Forces at the Pentagon. Twining stated that “the phenomenon reported is something real and not visionary or fictitious.” The silent, disc-like objects demonstrated “extreme rates of climb, maneuverability (particularly in roll), and motion which must be considered evasive when sighted or contacted by friendly aircraft and radar.” A new project, code-named “Sign,” based at Wright Field (now Wright-Patterson Air Force Base) outside Dayton, Ohio, was given the mandate to collect U.F.O. reports and assess whether the phenomenon was a threat to national security. With Russia ruled out as the source, the staff wrote a top secret “Estimate of the Situation,” concluding that, based on the evidence, U.F.O.s most likely had an interplanetary origin. According to government officials at the time, the estimate was rejected by General Hoyt Vandenberg, the Air Force chief of staff. From then on, the proponents of the off-planet hypothesis lost ground, with Vandenberg and others insisting that conventional explanations be found. Project Sign eventually evolved into Project Blue Book, with the aim of convincing the public that flying saucers could be explained.


quote:

Later that year, however, H. Marshall Chadwell, the assistant director of scientific intelligence for the C.I.A., concluded in a memo to the C.I.A. director, Walter Bedell Smith, that “sightings of unexplained objects at great altitudes and traveling at high speeds in the vicinity of major U.S. defense installations are of such nature that they are not attributable to natural phenomena or known types of aerial vehicles.”


quote:

Documents show the C.I.A. then devised a plan for a “national policy,” as to “what should be told the public regarding the phenomenon, in order to minimize risk of panic.” After a closed-door session with a scientific advisory panel chaired by H.P. Robertson from the California Institute of Technology, the C.I.A. issued a secret report recommending a broad educational program for all intelligence agencies, with the aim of “training and debunking.”

Training meant more public education on how to identify known objects in the sky. “The use of true cases showing first the ‘mystery’ and then the ‘explanation’ would be forceful,” the report said. Debunking “would be accomplished by mass media such as television, motion pictures, and popular articles.”

That plan involved using psychologists, advertising experts, amateur astronomers and even Disney cartoons to create propaganda to reduce public interest. And civilian U.F.O. groups should be “watched,” the report stated, because of their “great influence on mass thinking if widespread sightings should occur.”


quote:

“The implication in the Panel Report was that U.F.O.s were a nonsense (nonscience) matter, to be debunked at all costs,” Hynek wrote. “It made the subject of U.F.O.s scientifically unrespectable.”


quote:

Scientists may know more about the behavior and characteristics of U.F.O.s and are closer to understanding the physics of how the technology operates, according to A.A.T.I.P. documents and interviews. But the government still makes every attempt to keep investigations and conclusions secret, while denying any involvement to American citizens.

The Government’s Secret UFO Program Funded Research on Wormholes and Extra Dimensions

Documents released by the Department of Defense reveal some of what its infamous Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program was working on.




quote:

The Department of Defense funded research on wormholes, invisibility cloaking, and “the manipulation of extra dimensions” under its shadowy Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program, first described in 2017 by the New York Times and the Washington Post.

On Wednesday, the Defense Intelligence Agency released a list of 38 research titles pursued by the program in response to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request by Steven Aftergood, director of the Federation of American Scientists’ Project on Government Secrecy.


quote:

One such research topic, “Traversable Wormholes, Stargates, and Negative Energy,” was led by Eric W. Davis of EarthTech International Inc, which describes itself as a facility “exploring the forefront reaches of science and engineering,” with an interest in theories of spacetime, studies of the quantum vacuum, and the search for extraterrestrial intelligence.

Another project called “Invisibility Cloaking” was helmed by German scientist Ulf Leonhardt, a professor at the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel. Leonhardt’s research pertains to theoretical quantum optics, and in 2006 his work on theoretically creating “an invisible ‘hole’ in space, inside which objects can be hidden” was cited by Nature.

Yet another title, “Warp Drive, Dark Energy, and the Manipulation of Extra Dimensions,” was attributed to theoretical physicist Richard Obousy, director of the nonprofit Icarus Interstellar, which claims to be “researching technologies that will enable breakthroughs in interstellar travel.” Obousy was credited by Gizmodo in 2009 for creating “a scientifically accurate warpship design” that could hypothetically be propelled through space by manipulating dark energy.

According to the New York Times, much of its budget went to the Nevada-based Bigelow Aerospace, a company belonging to Reid’s longtime friend and UFO hunter, Robert Bigelow—also a protagonist of the documentary Hunt for the Skinwalker about the billionaire entrepreneur’s famed extraterrestrial hotbed, Skinwalker Ranch.


quote:

The first hints about the program’s existence can be credited to Luis Elizondo, a military intelligence official who managed the operation for seven years. When Elizondo resigned, he requested that footage of UFO encounters with fighter jets be made public—videos that were subsequently published by the New York Times and the Washington Post. At the time, Reid sought to tighten security around the program’s discoveries.

The agency claims the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program shut down due to a lack of funding, though Elizondo said it continued to investigate UFO sightings.

In a 2009 Pentagon briefing summary, the program’s then-director stated that “what was considered science fiction is now science fact.”

Everything in Science Is Paranormal Until It Isn’t. Here’s Why We Need To Evolve Our Perception Of The Unknown

quote:

When you think about the word “paranormal,” what comes to mind?
Probably poltergeists, ghost hunters, or little gray aliens. Or perhaps you imagine movies like The Blair Witch Project or Ghostbusters. The idea of the paranormal has remained a constant focus of thriller and sci-fi movies, often taking the audience on a wild, but very speculative ride. Talking about the word paranormal in any context other than the entertainment industry usually results in raised brows and smirks.
But isn’t everything in science paranormal until we eventually perceive it as normal?


quote:

What we think of as “paranormal” is often just a fact of nature.

When I was in college studying microbiology, I remember my professor telling the class the famous story of when Antoni van Leeuwenhoek first discovered protozoa.
As the story goes, he looked through a microscope and screamed, “Little beasties, little beasties!” and ran out of the room. For him and many during that time, the discovery of microorganisms was a paranormal moment. But these were living organisms, just below the threshold of our ability to observe and perceive. Today, we consider microorganisms a normal part of science, and in many cases, even beneficial. In fact, scientists discover as many as 20,000 new species per year.
A lot of what is now considered normal aspects of the observable universe were once considered paranormal.


quote:

The U.S. has a long history of involving itself in things considered paranormal.

Historically, the U.S. has been a global powerhouse in part due to its embrace?—?albeit often reluctant?—?of the strange or bizarre.
During the early days of the Manhattan Project, many scientists and lawmakers cringed at the idea of spending tax dollars on tiny, invisible packages of matter called “atoms” that would one day be used to end the war. After all, if you can’t even see an atom, how do we know they even exist? During the 1960s and 1970s, U.S. and Soviet militaries invested millions of dollars into psychic research, psychotronics, and mind control experiments. Even today, the United States Air Force and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is developing technology to allow pilots to fly aircraft with brainwaves.



quote:

In the case of Unidentified Aerial Phenomena (UAP), the stigma of anything that might be considered paranormal has a chilling effect on our nation’s ability to address a potential national security risk. It also severely limits the advancement of human knowledge. Advancements in technology have led to credible, reliable evidence that UFOs exist?—?far beyond simple anecdotes of untrained observer reports in prior decades. Slowly but surely, the subject is moving from the outer edges of the paranormal categorization as highly trained observers come forward with analysis of advanced aerospace technology.


quote:

Labeling media fake becomes a political weapon that can obscure truths and spread falsehoods. Information regarding UAP, in particular, tends to be associated with unhinged conspiracy theorists, and tabloid publications are quick to compound its negative reputation.
But if we take away misinformation, hoaxes, frauds, money-making schemes, egotism, and wishful thinking, there are certain truths that cannot be denied.


quote:

We must be careful not to give in to our human nature to dismiss what’s “para”?—?that is, above, beside or beyond?—?our understanding, just because we don’t have an explanation for it at this very moment.

That is, there is a lot out there we don’t yet understand that may be “paranormal” today but quite “normal” tomorrow.

Metamaterials Not From Earth
JANUARY 26, 2019



quote:

Metamaterials, in this context defined as pieces of UFOs, debris, implants or other exotic items have been a huge topic since they were referenced in the New York Times piece on December 16th, 2017 and long before that, as well. A lot of work has been done behind the scenes regarding these materials. Data and information will be coming to light via To the Stars Academy’s ADAM Research Project and most likely other groups. Some of the work has been described in Dr. Diana Walsh Pasulka’s amazing book, “American Cosmic: UFOs Religion, Technology.” I can’t say for sure, but I have a hunch that behind the scenes, conclusions have been made about how these authentic Metamaterials were constructed in zero or microgravity and most likely not manufactured on Earth.


quote:

Tom Delonge brought up the Metamaterials during his interview with Joe Rogan in 2017:

Delonge: “…looking at debris that they probably still have in a warehouse, going ‘we have no f*****g clue how to make this or back engineer this stuff.’ I mean, there’s a piece of metal, from a crash that I’ve seen, and I’ve seen the science on it, and it’s so… it’s atomically aligned and it’s layered in like eighty layers within just a few microns of purities of metal that aren’t even in our solar system and they think it needs to be made in an area where there’s no gravity. So, number one, it has to be made in space. Number two, even if we were to create a machine that can potentially do some of this stuff, 3D printing layers of different metals of obscene purities, it would cost hundreds and hundreds of millions of dollars. We don’t even have that.”

Rogan: “What did they think? That it was made without gravity?”

Delonge: “Because I think it’s the atomic structure. So what happens is when you radiate it with Terahertz, it loses mass, something weird. It resonates some kind of harmonic, and then it gets lighter and if you hit it with enough terahertz it’ll float. So we’re going to be showing people this stuff. We’re going to be bringing out the hardware, some of the hardware. We’re going to be bringing out implants. We’re going to be bring out videos. We’re going to bringing out some other stuff.”


Image: https://i0.wp.com/silvarecord.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/Pasulka-Quote-Graphic.jpg?ssl=1


quote:

Frank Statler: “Can you give us a little background on the nature of the recovered materials mentioned in the New York Times story?”

Dr. Garry Nolan: These are not your grandma’s alloys. If these materials truly exist– they are going to be found to be metamaterials. Though I call them metamaterials– it’s really for lack of a better term. They are probably even more engineered and subtle than that. The science of metamaterials is only a few decades old, but there is a whole ecosystem of new journals growing up around their unexpected and wondrous properties. One way to think about metamaterials is that is, basically, quantum engineering—working with “normal” matter in a way that takes advantage of properties we don’t fully appreciate yet. We draw the physical universe with only 80 elements. I would guess—just hypothesis– that “they” (an advanced civilization) that we might infer can accomplish some of the feats observed by the pilots understand the subtleties of isotopes and design with all 253 stable isotopes. The metamaterials “they” could design would be more subtle and likely encompass a greater understanding of reality and physics than we know now.

Remember, isotopes of a given element have the same electronic configuration, so they form covalent bonds similar to their sister isotopes (though with subtle differences in bond strengths). However, their nuclei have different spins for instance with, at times, unpaired neutrons. The various nuclear configurations gives rise to multiple fascinating opportunities in designing metamaterials. Want to know what your children should be studying in school? Physics, metallurgy, and advanced composite materials.

People interested in understanding the reality of what’s going on with these metamaterials (so-called alloys) need to understand this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isotope . There are 253 isotopes that do not undergo radioactive decay in any reasonable time frame. This page has a table of nuclides where the grey boxes denote the 253 stable isotopes. Some elements, such as aluminum, have only 1 stable isotope. Titanium and nickel each have 5 stable isotopes. Tin (Sn) has eight! There are natural ratios of these isotopes that are largely governed by stellar decay processes, centrifugal forces (solar and other) during planetary formation, and proximity to gamma and other radiation sources. The ratios vary only slightly (maximum a couple percent) across a solar system. Significant variations in isotope ratios imply either engineering of the ratios for a purpose, or that the materials came from somewhere that does not “play by our rules”.

Here is a statement from Robert Bigelow himself, almost exactly nineteen years ago to the date:

Non-Terrestrial Permutations and Impacts
as Related to Access and Use of Terrestrial Resources
Robert Bigelow

January, 2000


In a round about way, I recently experienced a personal revelation. For the last several months I have been thinking of ways to enhance various business plans related to commercialization of space. These involve transportation systems and economically justifiable destinations.

Naturally, what you can do or produce on an orbiting system that creates special or unique value becomes very, very important for the business case. While reading and talking on this subject, I reinforced what I previously knew a little but not nearly enough; and, that was that many unique and often profoundly special reactions occur upon organic and non-organic substances in a microgravity environment that happen nowhere else. We all know of the usual cast of characters but, I’m talking about ones you normally don’t read about.

As it turns out in processes affecting non-organic substances for example, it is possible to create materials, components and products that are totally in a class by themselves. Nowhere, terrestrially, can any of these items with their unique performance capabilities be made. I’m getting closer to my revelation. What is the implication here? Well, I believe that components for advanced spacecraft can be manufactured in a microgravity environment that cannot be duplicated on the surface of a planet.

And now here is my theory. I strongly believe that at least some UFOs owe their beginnings to being manufactured whole or in substantial part from materials made in a microgravity environment. Competitively, we might well be working with a periodic table containing much fewer elements compared to a species that has access to those same elements but has fully achieved manufacturing and experimentation in space on a significant scale.

I believe, so long as a species remains planet-bound in their manufacturing processes, they will not avail themselves of the resource necessary to make interstellar craft. They will only develop what terrestrial processes allow.

As for our UFO friends, we will not begin to match their early craft until we also begin to exploit space for manufacturing purposes.

Thank you.

Robert T. Bigelow

Archaeologists with Seafarer Exploration Corporation have unearthed an ancient death mask, dating back possibly thousands of years BC. The artifact, which is as thin as a piece of paper, was found on Melbourne Beach, Florida. And that’s not all. The mask contains a precious metal, as an X-ray has revealed the presence of iridium, possibly from a meteorite.

The theory is, the item was taken by Spanish tomb-raiders, and the piece of metal was part of a funeral headpiece from a pre-Incan civilization in Peru.


quote:

This is some of the earliest evidence of man’s ability to metal work and to use iridium,” said Dr. Michael Torres, who found the mask. "That changes things, and may change the way we perceive ancient Peruvian cultures."


With any treasure hunt, there is some degree of luck. Dr. Torres pinged on the artifact using a metal detector which cost a couple hundred bucks, to discover the headpiece, which is priceless.

"It was looted from Machu Picchu,” Dr. Torres told FOX 35.

Advanced Extraterrestrials as an Approximation to God
Our first encounter with E.T. technology could be as baffling to us as a smartphone would have been to a Neandertal
By Abraham Loeb on January 26, 2019


quote:

Despite the impression one gets from textbooks, our current knowledge of the universe represents a small island in a vast ocean of ignorance. The scientific enterprise is all about expanding the landmass of this island. And it is fun to engage in the activity of gaining knowledge; knowing everything in advance would have been much more boring. Still, it would be shocking to learn all at once of the discoveries of an alien civilization that been doing scientific and technological exploration for billions of years, in contrast to our mere few centuries. The eminent science fiction writer Arthur C. Clarke codified this idea in the third of his three laws : “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.” Put another way, members of such a civilization would appear to us as a pretty good approximation to God. Meeting a piece of advanced technological equipment developed by an extraterrestrial intelligence might resemble an imaginary encounter of ancient cave people with a modern cell phone. At first, they would interpret it as a shiny rock, not recognizing it as a communication device. The same thing might have happened in reaction to the first detection of an interstellar visitor to the solar system, ‘Oumuamua, which showed six peculiar properties but was nevertheless interpreted as a rock by mainstream astronomers.


quote:

Is there something we might be missing already here and now? When looking around us, the most mysterious phenomenon we encounter routinely is the sophistication of complex life. Some scientists wondered whether life itself was seeded on Earth by an alien civilization in a process called “directed panspermia.” One can imagine a probe that brought the seeds of life in the form of microbes or instead a 3-D printer that produced these seeds out of the raw materials on Earth based on a prescribed blueprint. The universal left-handedness (chirality) of all life-forms on Earth without exception can be interpreted as stemming from a single panspermia event, be it natural (through a rock arriving from space) or artificial in origin . Even in this context, our imagination of what aliens might do will improve once we are able to produce synthetic life in the laboratory.


quote:

If life was seeded artificially on Earth, one may wonder whether the seeders are checking on the outcome. And if so, the fact that we have not heard from them may indicate that they are disappointed. The experiment may have failed, or we are simply too slow to mature. Well, this may not come as a surprise given the irresponsible way we behave sometimes. Perhaps if we only knew that someone is looking over our shoulders, we would do better. It is not too late for us to find out, by using the best telescopes at our disposal.

LAS VEGAS - Former Nevada Senator Harry Reid is calling for formal congressional hearings probing the enduring mystery of UFOs. The longtime leader of Senate Democrats quietly sponsored a secret Pentagon study of UFOs and related mysteries. The program was based in Las Vegas but ended in 2012.

Now, in his first on-camera interview in more than a year, Reid says both Congress and the Pentagon should take a fresh look at the topic, and he intends to help make it happen.

"Some people say, why is Reid doing this? He doesn't know anything about science. Well, I'm doing it out of sheer curiosity," Reid said


quote:

"As I said, this is a worldwide phenomenon. It's not just here in the United States. There are certain places we don't understand why but there are more occurrences and have been for a long long time."



quote:

The study based in Las Vegas explored topics far beyond the nuts and bolts of flying saucers. Physicist Dr. Hal Puthoff assigned 38 topics to academics and experts, tasking the authors to project to the year 2050 and speculate on what our cutting-edge technology might become. UFOs, whatever they are, have already demonstrated some of what is possible.

In July 2018, the I-Team first released the list of those papers. Two weeks ago, the Defense Intelligence Agency confirmed the list when it released a letter from late Senator John McCain, who had requested all available materials from AATIP for his armed services committee. Reid and McCain were from different parties but were close. "Sure, John knew what I was doing. He didn't hide the fact that he was interested also. It's why he wrote the letter." Media critics have griped that the papers explored fringe science. That was the assignment, according to Dr. Puthoff. One publication explores invisibility cloaking -- craft that are not only invisible to radar, but actually invisible. That research has reportedly been underway at Nevada's Area 51 base in recent years.


Reporter George Knapp: "It suggests there might be other studies and programs that might shed light on this?"

Harry Reid: "Other programs that have been done and information they have, including different pieces of evidence."

Interview with Steve Justice, who retired as Director of Advanced Systems at Lockheed Martin’s famed Skunk Works program

To The Stars Academy: Unafraid to Investigate the Unexplained
Reimagining what's possible with an organization at the outer edge of science
MATT TILLER |
February 8, 2019


quote:

For decades, many people around the world have reported seeing unexplained aerial phenomena. This includes anything from a luminous orb to a flying disc, and any serious inquiry of the matter could get you ostracized from intellectual circles. But there are serious people in serious organizations willing to investigate the unexplainable rather than explaining what remains largely uninvestigated. My curiosity about this topic led me to talk with one such individual, and after our conversation, well, I don’t think we should be laughing.


quote:

Science, Aerospace, Entertainment, Analysis

There exists a worldwide occurrence that defies our understanding and appears as seemingly magically as it disappears. Many people have heard the terminology: unidentified aerial phenomenon, advanced aviation vehicles, flying saucers, etc. All of these phrases describe something that cannot accurately be explained but is real nonetheless. From 2007 to 2012, the Pentagon operated the Advanced Aviation Threat Identification Program (AATIP) for gathering quantifiable information about these exotic flying machines to assess the possibility of a threat. AATIP collected and analyzed electro-optical data, radar returns, signature reduction, thrust vectoring, and many other types of data. All of this information yields credence to the idea that “We may not be alone,” as Luis Elizondo, former director of AATIP, stated during a December 2017 interview with CNN. Logically, many questions arise: Who are flying these objects? Where do they come from? Why are they here? Instead of chasing endless guesses, AATIP sought to answer one question: Are they a threat? In short, no, they do not appear to be a threat.


quote:

TTSA has undertaken and the credible talent DeLonge assembled to assist in TTSA’s efforts, including the aforementioned Elizondo; Steve Justice, who retired as Director of Advanced Systems at Lockheed Martin’s famed Skunk Works program; Hal Puthoff, former National Security Agency researcher and advisor to NASA; and Jim Semivan, who spent 25 years in the CIA’s Directorate of Operations. In July 2018, the science division launched the ADAM project (Acquisition & Data Analysis of Materials), which endeavors to analyze materials reportedly from advanced aircraft of unknown origin, similar to the ones observed by AATIP. The TTSA blog states the exotic materials, coming from “private citizens, foreign aerospace investigatory committees, aerospace operators, and government organizations” will be analyzed for technological innovation. Naturally, I had questions. So I contacted To The Stars Academy and was given an interview with Steve Justice, the Chief Operations Officer and Aerospace Division Director for TTSA.


quote:

Most of Society Is Afraid to Ask

Steve Justice headshot Steve Justice, Chief Operations Officer and Aerospace Division Director at To The Stars Academy. To The Stars Academy Justice began his career in the aerospace defense industry and in 1984 joined Lockheed’s Skunk Works, an innovation and development arm of the company credited with developing such famed aircraft as the U-2, SR-71 Blackbird, F-117 Nighthawk, F-22 Raptor, and F-35 Lightning. Justice himself held roles on programs for the F-117 and F-22. Along with being credited with numerous patents, he has also received the company’s NOVA Award (its highest recognition for achievement). Justice joined To The Stars Academy in September 2017. “To The Stars is a group of people who came together to answer the questions that most of society is afraid to ask,” Justice told me. “There’s this overwhelming body of evidence that [indicates] something strange is going on.” While it seemed to me that evidence of this profound nature would be met with great interest by the public, Justice said that the stigma of unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP) hinders widespread investigation. In discussing UAP with officials from the government and the private sector, he can usually put their response into one of three categories: positive (they remain silent as you speak and promptly change the subject), typical (boisterous laughter, eye rolls, and sarcasm), and negative (outright attack).


quote:

And beyond figuring out what the materials are and what they can do, TTSA’s ultimate goal is to leverage new technology for the betterment of mankind. “We have no idea how this technology, this expanded physics, could change our lives,” Justice said. “You know, around 2000 you didn’t know you needed a smartphone, and now you can’t live without it. Somebody had the vision to create something you didn’t know you needed.”


quote:

The future ahead of us is incredible,” Justice said. “The impossible is just something you haven’t seen yet, and there is a lot of impossible out in front of us. So, watch not only us, but look elsewhere and watch the impossible become possible.”

Navy UFO Events Took Place Off the Coast of Florida AND VIRGINIA

FEBRUARY 25, 2019


quote:

“What makes it even more interesting is when you hear the audio, the individuals say, ‘there’s an entire fleet of them.’ I can not go into detail why that’s important. I hope at some point the details of that will come out, but it will not come out from me. It isn’t just one and if you know the backstory behind that incident, you’re just looking at a very short video, maybe thirty or thirty-five seconds worth, but there’s an entire story, weeks and weeks and weeks worth, that go behind that video and that is what’s so compelling and if those details should come out, I think that’s going to be the ‘A-ha’ moment, the epiphany, so to speak, where people are going to look and say, ‘Holy smokes! That really is an important video. That’s not just some blurry thing on the screen.”


quote:

TTSA’s Chris Mellon made the comment about fifteen encounters off the east coast since 2015, as well as the fleet, in his Washington Post article. There have been rumors circulating behind the scenes of at least five videos filmed during the encounter. They were referenced openly by Keith Basterfield on Coast to Coast AM. Pilot Dave Fravor and investigative filmmaker Jeremy Corbell have given us some of the best hints and information about what occured. Creator of The Nimitz Encounters, Dave Beaty, has also been on the forefront of citizen investigators who are looking into this occurrence. There are claims that more witnesses from The Gimbal Events will come forward and speak in March at a conference. If more Gimbal Event videos and data is released soon, the witnesses will tie into this perfectly.


quote:

Are more videos and information from the Gimbal on deck for the next big release? Will it be coupled with the USO story Tom Delonge has also teased? What about the imminent Metamaterials analysis? Or the other rumored programs? We will have to wait and see if the March/April announcement timeline holds up, it very well could – but even if it doesn’t, judging by the writing on the wall I’d guess another drop will occur in 2019.

New images of TR-3B released.

quote:

On February 18, four stunning photographs of a flying triangle shaped craft was taken in Orlando, Florida at around 1:20 am. The photographer, my confidential source JP, was then approached by two men in black who threatened him to remain silent about what he had seen and photographed. The craft appeared with three lights shining, one at each corner, and hovered about 45 feet (13.7 meters) away from him over a secluded field near his home.

In a Skype message, JP told me about what had happened. He recalled going to bed around 10 pm on Sunday night, and then waking up at 2:30 am with a sore throat. He says that when he checked his phone, he saw four pictures of a flying triangle. He then remembered that he had been standing out in the field and taking the photos and video of the craft. He says that he felt an electromagnetic field around the craft which was the size of a school bus.

After taking the photos and videos he remembered starting to walk back home. After 10 minutes, JP says that two men in black approached him and threatened him not to tell me about it in particular. He says that one of the men pulled out something like a gun and threatened him. He next remembered waking up in bed. The video of the craft was gone, but the photos remained. What follows is a short video of the original four photos and enhancements to better clarify what JP photographed....

U.S. IN UFO RACE WITH CHINA, RUSSIA, FORMER SENATE MAJORITY LEADER SUGGESTS

BY ANDREW WHALEN ON 3/1/19 AT 12:40 PM


quote:

Former Democratic Senate Majority Leader and Nevada Senator Harry Reid argued for continued study into UFO phenomena in an interview with CBS affiliate KLAS 8 in Las Vegas, citing competition from Russia and China—a UFO race, of sorts. “I’ll bet you anything that China is spending some money checking this out. I’ll bet you anything KGB Putin is spending some money checking this out,” Reid told George Knapp of Las Vegas Now’s I-Team.


quote:

Reid said he understands why officials within the Pentagon and other possible research avenues within the U.S. government might be skeptical about dedicating resources to studying Unexplained Aerial Phenomena (UAP), but he also seemed to unwittingly undercut his own position by alluding to a rash of recent UFO sightings prompted by scheduled SpaceX launches.

“This has been going on for a long time. These sightings are said to have been set off by a rocket in California or something. People do not want—people in responsibility, whether it’s the Pentagon or whatever it might be—they don’t want to have to try to explain something that’s, many times, not explainable,” Reid said.


quote:

Reid confirmed the resulting study included investigations of a mysterious ranch in northeastern Utah once owned by Bigelow (ownership has since transferred to Adamantium Real Estate and an anonymous owner). Known in UFO circles as “Skinwalker Ranch,” the site has been a hotbed of reported paranormal phenomena, including claims of cattle mutilations, UFO sightings, and even mysterious animals with piercing yellow eyes that were impervious to bullets.


quote:

The program also delved into research related to the UFO phenomena, including 38 scientific papers for the Defense Intelligence Agency with outlandish headlines like “Warp Drive, Dark Energy, and the Manipulation of Extra Dimensions” and “Traversable Wormholes, Stargates, and Negative Energy.”

The papers were produced by BAASS scientists affiliated with EarthTech International, a research group founded by Dr. Hal Puthoff, a physicist with a long history of promoting pseudoscience, including endorsing psychic fraud Uri Geller .

Is There Any Evidence for ESP?

quote:

Skeptics of the supernatural and religion boldly declare themselves rational. We can test this assertion on their terms by looking closely at their claims about three specific issues. First, telepathy or extra-sensory perception? Some might argue that they have no problem considering this a natural ability, but the hardline skeptics say that is not the case.


quote:

A medical engineer, Eldon Bird, who introduced Geller, told me, “When you analyze the metal closely, it does not show the normal stress you expect with something that had been bent. It looks as if it had been made that way. Uri alters alloy memory. We obviously do not have a complete grasp of natural laws.” He called Randi “a scumbag and a liar.” In Psychic Breakthroughs Today, Scott Rogo, responded to Randi’s Flim-Flam!, a critique of Geller’s ESP and telekinesis experiments at SRI International in Menlo Park, Calif., in 1972. Rogo summarized: “There was simply no way coincidence can explain some of the results.”


quote:

In Best Evidence, investigative reporter Michael Schmicker analyzed the research on ESP and precognition (anticipation of an event) at Duke University from 1928 to 1965 by J.B. Rhine. “Rhine suspected that ESP was not a supernatural phenomenon, but rather an unknown but natural phenomenon ultimately understandable under the laws of classical physics,” wrote Schmicker. “Consequently, it could be studied in the laboratory like any other natural phenomenon.”

quote:

As Thomas Kuhn wrote in The Structure of Scientific Revolutions, “No part of the aim of normal science is to call forth new sorts of phenomena; indeed, those that will not fit the box are often not seen at all.”


quote:

For example, the RNG experiments provide evidence that quantum theory may not be complete. Psychics’ descriptions of the subatomic state at the beginning of the 20th century sound much like the later quark model of physics and superstring theory. Radin says there are potentially important practical uses for psi: medicine could use it in diagnosis, business could avoid losses, police could more easily recreate crime scenes, and the military could communicate with submarines beyond the reach of current technology. Even the American Medical Association has come around, after doing its own clinical studies, to accept that practices like acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine work, even though they violate Western theories.
