Scientists Keep Finding Building Blocks of Life; Are Aliens Next?
Liquid water seems to exist in several places throughout our solar system; below the surface of Mars, on several of Saturn and Jupiter’s moons, and even on our own moon at one point. And where there is liquid water, there is a strong possibility of life.
This makes us wonder if we’re on the brink of “finding” life – or finally being told about it – in our own solar system, and what that would mean for the existence of life throughout the cosmos. But is this really a new and profound discovery, or is it a controlled release of information, prepping us for a larger disclosure?
15th Century Astronomers Saw Activity, Lights on Moon's Dark Side
Fifty years ago, NASA published a catalog of lunar phenomena based on the observations of early astronomers dating back to the 15th century. Even after vetting the reports and qualifying their accuracy with secondary sources, NASA found records of bizarre sightings on the dark side of the moon, including flickering spots, bright flashes, and moving lights. What could account for these strange observations?
It’s debatable who first conceived of the telescope, though it’s widely accepted that it was first invented at the start of the 1600s. And while the first models were rudimentary, three-lens spyglasses, the technology quickly progressed over the following decades thanks to the work of Galileo and Kepler.
By adding a combination of convex lenses, the two were able to drastically increase the magnification capability of early telescopes, allowing observation of the cosmos like never before. It’s also evident from his notes that Galileo was able to view Jupiter’s moons, meaning he must have had a pretty clear view of our lunar surface.
