Missing Jet From Kinross UFO Found?

Could a F-89 Scorpion jet that disappeared in 1953 be part of a massive UFO conspiracy?

According to SooToday.com, a dive company in Michigan may have found the remains of the famed f-89 Scorpion jet that disappeared from radar after scrambling to intercept a UFO almost 50 years ago?

The company has a photo of the wreckage on the newspaper’s website and also claims it found part of whatever the jet was chasing. Was it part of a UFO or just a tragic accident with a bizarre set of circumstances?

Theorists Don’t Buy MoD’s Denial

Remember that British report from the Ministry of Defence awhile back that said there was not a single piece of evidence that could support the existence of UFOs? Most UFO believers aren’t buying it, according to a story at Scotsman.com. (This just in, scientists announced that grass is green, cows don’t give chocolate milk and all of Clay Aiken’s music sucks.)

David Clarke, a journalist who filed freedom of information requests that sparked the original MoD report, seems to be leading the wave of believers, saying, “They’ve got the truth, but it’s not what they want to hear.”

But Nick Pope, a MoD officials insists there’s no cover-up to uncover. “In Britain, I’m convinced there’s no cover-up, there’s no conspiracy…”But I can’t win with arguments like that, because whatever I say, they won’t believe it.”

UFOs: Are They Worth It?

Millions of people spend long nights looking up at the sky and trying desparately to find signs of intelligent life elsewhere in the universe short of building their own rocketship out of an old refridgerator and flying it to Mars on nothing but kerosene and hope. But after spending all that time wondering, looking and hoping, Space.com asks, is it all worth it?

Senior Space Writer Leonard David speaks to some UFO experts and organizations who say that new technology will help them prove their existence and show their importance to mankind. But he also talked to several aviation and scientific experts who state that scientifically it’s all based on tradition and not fact and the hope that one day, the world will reveal that UFOs do exist but that will never happen.

Here’s some of the more interesting quotes from the articles:
– “Physics is leading to new and potentially paradigm shifting understandings about the nature of our universe and its physical properties. These understandings may point the way towards an acceptance of the probability of interstellar travel and communication by spacefaring races.” – Ted Roe, Executive Director of the National Aviation Reporting Center on Anomalous Phenomena (NARCAP).

– “UFO believers are convinced that the existence of UFOs will be revealed ‘any day now’. But it’s like Charlie Brown and the football: No matter how many times Lucy pulls the football away—or the promised ‘disclosure’ fails to happen—they’re dead-certain that the next time will be their moment of glory.” – Robert Sheaffer, fellow of the Committee for the Scientific Investigation of Claims of the Paranormal, UFO writer

– “I can’t think of a single, major science museum that has alien artifacts on display. Contrast this paucity of physical evidence with what the American Indians could have shown you fifty years after Christopher Columbus first violated their sea-space. They could have shown you all sorts of stuff—including lots of smallpox-infested brethren—as proof that they were being ‘visited.” – Seth Shostak, Senior Astronomer at the SETI Institute

Earth Specimen Could Prove Existence of Life on Other Planets

A glacier in the High Arctic could hold an important clue to whether or not life exists on other planets.

According to CBC News, Geologist Benoit Beauchamp stumbled across a glacier during an oil hunting expedition that contained bacteria that adapted to a harsh cold environment.

So what does this have to do with ET? Well, if this bacteria can live in such cold, sub-zero temperatures, that means life could exist on planets like Jupiter’s moon, Europa, where the temperatures are just as cold.

The expedition is being funded by NASA and the Canadian Space Agency, which starts June 21.
