    The recent UFO sightings by military pilots

    I usually have no problem saying that although I firmly believe there are many other solar systems with planets that can sustain life, I am more than extremely skeptical about UFO sightings, however the recent sightings and video footage by military pilots sure does add a lot of intrigue to it. What do you all think? One aspect of these UFO sightings that is always the case is that there are never detailed photos, with most of what I've seen recently looking like little more than little dots. Hey, maybe other advanced life forms just happen to be tiny, but I keep waiting to see if ever there will be a photo or video taken that leaves very little doubt about what it is. The photos all seem to be at night, further obscuring any efforts to get detail out of them.

    I'm a believer, since they now say the expansion of the Universe as 46.5 billion light years away, hence the diameter of visible universe is 93 billion light years, those are pretty good odds that we are not alone, but I'm not going to worry about it, they would have to be far advanced then we are, to travel such vast area's so quickly.

    Pentagon UFO chief says alien mothership in our solar system possible


    (Canva via

    There is a possibility that extraterrestrial motherships and smaller probes may be visiting planets in our solar system, the head of the Pentagon’s unidentified aerial phenomena research office noted in a report draft shared Tuesday.
    “[A]n artificial interstellar object could potentially be a parent craft that releases many small probes during its close passage to Earth, an operational construct not too dissimilar from NASA missions,” Sean Kirkpatrick, director of the Pentagon’s All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office, wrote in a research report co-authored by Abraham Loeb, chairman of Harvard University’s astronomy department.




    Kirkpatrick, who was appointed as director of the AARO when it was founded in July 2022, previously served as the chief scientist at the Defense Intelligence Agency’s Missile and Space Intelligence Center. The AARO was established to investigate unidentified “objects of interest” around military installations, according to a Pentagon press release.
    Loeb, on the other hand, gained notoriety when he proposed our solar system had been traversed by its first extrasolar visitor in October 2017. At that time, the PanSTARRS telescope in Hawaii detected an object moving at a speed that caused some scientists to suggest that it originated outside our system. The object’s orbit also hinted at other forces besides the sun’s gravitational pull influencing its movement.
    Scientists dubbed the object “Oumuamua,” the Hawaiian term for “scout,” which Kirkpatrick and Loeb offer in their research paper as an example of a possible mothership with probe capabilities.




    “With proper design, these tiny probes would reach the Earth or other solar system planets for exploration, as the parent craft passes by within a fraction of the Earth-Sun separation — just like ‘Oumuamua’ did,” the authors explained. “Astronomers would not be able to notice the spray of mini-probes because they do not reflect enough sunlight for existing survey telescopes to notice them.”
    The research paper — titled “Physical Constraints on Unidentified Aerial Phenomena” — comes following a month of intense scrutiny of unidentified flying objects, a stirring trend ignited when a Chinese spy balloon captivated the nation by drifting across U.S. airspace. Three additional unidentified objects were subsequently found.
    On Feb. 16, Sens. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., and 12 other senators sent a letter to Deputy Secretary of Defense Kathleen Hicks and Deputy Director of National Intelligence Stacey Dixon calling for full funding for the AARO. The Biden administration’s previous funding request for fiscal year 2023 failed to fund anything beyond the office’s basic operating expenses, the lawmakers argued.
    “AARO provides the opportunity to integrate and resolve threats and hazards to the U.S., while also offering increased transparency to the American people and reducing the stigma,” the lawmakers’ letter stated. “AARO’s success will depend on robust funding for its activities and cooperation between the Department of Defense and the Intelligence Community.”

    As we continue to ruin the food supply , pollution, and planetary climate balance plus moving closer to wiping everybody out on the planet with nukes, somebody's bound to show up and watch.

    Like feeding more people than ever in the history of the planet, or having the fewest people die from natural disasters since humans have walked the earth. Or did you mean that "Between 1970 and 2020, the combined emissions of the six common pollutants (PM2.5 and PM10, SO2, NOx, VOCs, CO and Pb) dropped by 78 percent."?

    Most will probably turn out to be "our" top-secret technology.

    I haven't seen any...but..
    a guy at work was abducted and probed 3 times... said they were aliens...he did drink alot...im pretty sure they assaulted him...still swears they transported him aboard their ship...even had a picture of the bench he was sitting on
    Screenshot_20230315_175900_Google.jpg i thought it was pretty funny...[/I]
    I'm going to ask elon musk....

    im sure of one senerio...if i was an advanced civilization...I'd definitely start over with a clean slate..on this planet.

    If we are being visited it makes sense that what we are seeing are probes.
    Why would you send a manned craft to gather data.

    Not to mention the time it takes for a craft to get here at an astronomical cost.

    https://www.sciencealert.com/it-may-...to-visit-earth

    "In short, achieving the speed of light is impossible, never mind exceeding it. So barring some tremendous revolution in our understanding of physics, a Faster-Than-Light (FTL) propulsion system can never exist.

    Such is the consequence of living in a relativistic Universe, where traveling at even a fraction of the speed of light requires tremendous amounts of energy.

    And while some very interesting and innovative ideas have been produced over the years by physicists and engineers who want to see interstellar travel become a reality, none of the crewed concepts are what you might call "cost-effective."
    -------
    Specifically, the concept of Fusion Propulsion was investigated by the British Interplanetary Society between 1973 and 1978 as part of a feasibility study known as Project Daedalus.

    The resulting design called for a two-stage spacecraft that would generate thrust by fusing pellets of a deuterium/helium-3 in a reaction chamber using electron lasers.

    This would create a high-energy plasma that would then be converted to thrust by a magnetic nozzle.

    The first stage of the spacecraft would operate for just over 2 years and accelerate the spacecraft to 7.1 percent the speed of light (0.071c). This stage would then be jettisoned and the second stage would take over and accelerate the spacecraft up to about 12 percent of light speed (0.12c) over the course of 1.8 years.

    The second-stage engine would then be shut down, and the ship would enter into a 46-year cruise period.

    According to the Project's estimates, the mission would take 50 years to reach Barnard's Star (less than 6 light-years away). Adjusted for Proxima Centauri, the same craft could make the trip in 36 years.

    But in addition to technological barriers identified by the Project, there was also the sheer costs involved.

    Even by the modest standard of an uncrewed concept, a fully-fueled Daedalus would weigh as much as 60,000 metric tons cost over [US$5.2 trillion] (based on 2012 estimates). Adjust to 2020, the price tag for a fully-assembled Daedalus would cost close to US$6 trillion. Icarus Interstellar, an international organization of volunteer citizen scientists (founded in 2009), has since attempted to revitalize the concept with Project Icarus.

    Yes, the distances to other stars would seem to preclude alien visits. And the sheer number of other stars makes alien life probable.

    That’s only true for people that believe mankind is the most technological advanced being in the universe.
    That type of arrogance can sometimes be dangerous.

    Its probable that some aliens are more advanced then we are as their stars are much older. But the physics doesn't change. The speed limit is the speed of light, and the distances are vast.
