This Man May Have Been The First Person Killed By A Meteorite In 200 Years

An investigation is under way in southern India to determine if a man who died over the weekend was the first person to be killed by a meteor in modern times. According to Reuters, Indian officials believe a bus driver at Bharathidasan Engineering College in Vellore, a district in the southern Indian state of Tamil Nadu,… Read More

No Fly For You: NASA Suspends Upcoming Mars Lander Mission

NASA suspended the upcoming launch of a new Mars lander that would probe the interior of the red planet after the agency and its partners were unable to repair a leak in the spacecraft’s seismometer. The Interior Exploration using Seismic Investigations Geodesy and Heat Transport (InSight) mission was scheduled to launch in March 2016, but the… Read More

Did This Astronaut Just See A UFO From The Space Station?

File this one to crazy things people say online.

American Astronaut Scott Kelly is currently embarking on an impressive feat- staying in space for nearly a year, 342 days to be exact.

Everyday, he sends out at least one tweet showing amazing views of the Earth from the International Space Station.

He did the same on Nov. 15 as he was above southern India.

Just a normal tweet. Beautiful light, wow so pretty. OH DEAR GOD IS THAT A UFO IN THE UPPER RIGHT?

Yeah probably not, but some people are taking this pretty seriously.

“Scott Kelly likes to send out photos of the view from the windows of the space station…and they look cool,” Scott Waring, an editor of wrote according to CBS News. “This one however has a cigar shaped glowing UFO with a metallic body in it. The UFO is about 25 meters long and 150-200 meters away. It looks like Scott was trying to hint at the existence of aliens. Message received Scott, and thanks.”

This video talking about the alleged UFO has nearly 300,000 views.

Scientists May Have Found Evidence Of An Alternate Universe. Seriously

Scientists claim that they may have just found evidence of the existence of an alternate universe.

The discovery was made while mapping the cosmic microwave background (CMB), which is the left over light from the early universe.

Ranga-Ram Chary, an astrophysicist at the European Space Agency’s Planck Space Telescope data center at Caltech, discovered while studying the CMB that certain light spots were glowing 4,500 times brighter than expected, as reported by Russia Today (RT).

According the International Business Times, Chary has said that while there is a 30% chance the fluctuations are nothing unusual, there is also the possibility they provide evidence of a collision of our Universe with an alternate Universe.

This sort of collision should be possible, according to modern cosmological theories that suggest the universe we see is just one bubble among many, according to New Scientist.

“Our universe may simply be a region within an eternally inflating super-region,” Chary wrote in a recent study. “Many other regions beyond our observable universe would exist with each such region governed by a different set of physical parameters.”

The multiverse theory has been based on the widely accepted idea of cosmic inflation, which suggests that the early universe expanded exponentially in an instant following the explosion of the Big Bang. Theoretically the inflation would continue until multiple universes are ultimately created.

Although the initial findings have proved promising, verification of the anomalies as evidence of an alternate universe could prove to be difficult.

Chary himself noted that, “Unusual claims like evidence for alternate universes require a very high burden of proof.”

Further analysis of the data collected will be required in order to prove or disprove Chary’s potential discovery.
