(Sequoyah Kennedy) Scientists may have found the missing piece to the puzzle of the “Gaia hypothesis.” First proposed by James Lovelock and Lynn Margulis in the 1970’s, the Gaia hypothesis is an attempt to explain how Earth has managed to sustain life in the face of the multitudes of cosmic and terrestrial cataclysms that have befallen our pale blue dot throughout the approximately 3.8 billion years since our very first single celled ancestors started this whole mess.

(Brett Tingley) As vast and empty as it is, the universe is actually full of radio signals. Not necessarily the ones we tend to think of when we hear the word “radio,” but radio waves nonetheless. Radio waves are a type of electromagnetic radiation similar to light or X-rays, but just with a much longer wavelength. Radio waves can be generated from a variety of naturally occurring sourcesout in space, making them one more way for us to understand our mysterious universe.
(Brett Tingley) Arachnophobia is consistently ranked as one of the most common specific phobias, or fears. And with good reason: as humans evolved, we had to learn to be afraid of all of the little creepy crawlies lurking in the brush which might be able to kill or incapacitate us with just one tiny little bite. That awesome John Goodman movie probably didn’t help relieve people’s fears either.
(Sequoyah Kennedy) While many have argued that the biggest problem facing humanity is our growing inability to communicate, MIT seems to think that our first interactions with household robots should be predicated on passive aggression and silent judgement. Robotics scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have created a “robot servant” named Baxter that can read its owners brain waves and tell when they’re displeased with the job its doing and correct its behavior accordingly. Conveniently, you don’t even need to talk to this poor machine, as it can be controlled by simple hand gestures.
(Brent Swancer) Humans have always been fascinated by what lies out over the horizon of our known world and borders, by what lies over the next hill or over the waves beyond what we see. This fascination has driven us to explore and understand our planet since time unremembered, and countless explorers have bravely pushed past the boundaries of our maps and the limits of our horizon to discover, tame, and conquer.
(Brent Swancer) The Bigfoot phenomenon has grown to be quite a bizarre feature of the world of the weird. These massive hairy creatures have been spotted all over the world, in places where they should have no business being such as England, and in literally every U.S. state, including yes, even Hawaii. These beasts are sighted in both remote areas and even in relatively urban locales, and it has all proven to be quite a mystery as to just what is going on here. Among the various other unlikely places one would expect to find a Bigfoot is on military bases, yet there have been a surprisingly large number of reports from such locales, and here are a few.
(Paul Seaburn) If you’ve been waiting to find out whatever happened to the mysterious three-fingered Peruvian maybe-alien-maybe-not mummies unveiled last year, your wait is over. Renowned UFO and paranormal researcher Steve Mera has revealed the long-anticipated official and verifiable DNA analysis of “Maria” — the largest three-fingered body with an equally unusual large head. The results are in and Maria is …
(Nick Redfern) In just a few days from now, the 2018 Dulce Base UFO Conference will be held at Dulce, New Mexico. There will, of course, be a great deal of debate and conversation on the town’s legend: namely, that deep below Dulce’s Archuleta Mesa there exists a huge, fortified “alien base” where all sorts of horrific experimentation is undertaken on untold numbers of people. By who?
(Brett Tingley) Spotting a UFO might be a source of wonder and curiosity for most of us, but for those individuals tasked with upholding security, spotting anomalous objects whizzing around in the sky can be incredibly stressful.
(Micah Hanks) “You will be part of the five proud branches of the United States Armed Forces… Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force and the Coast Guard.” These were the words of U.S. President Donald Trump back in May, during a ceremony at the Whitehouse honoring the Army Black Knights college football team. Up to this point, his comments were fairly pedestrian… but of course, that’s just about when things took a turn for the stars.
(Nick Redfern) Just recently I wrote an article titled “A factual object of very unusual nature.” It served to demonstrate that, contrary to what some have said, the U.S. Freedom of Information Act has led to the release of genuinely intriguing UFO reports.
Australia is full of weird, supernatural legends and reports of paranormal experiences, from tales of the Yowie—the “Australian Bigfoot”—to haunted highways and strange aboriginal folklore. For a long time, however, it was thought that Australia was without a tradition of the European folk magic like that practiced in the colonial days of the United States. Recent discoveries and research have disproved that theory. Among the most recent finds is a 200-year-old almanacof magic spells and folk medicine that illuminates the secret magical traditions of colonial Australia.
(Brett Tingley) In years to come, UFO researchers may look back upon the Pentagon revelations over the last year as a turning point in government disclosure. Of course, it could also likely be that these are a clever smokescreen, a ruse, or a distraction intended to mislead the public as usual.
(Nick Redfern) Daryl Collins, like me, lives in the Lone Star State. He has had more than a few strange and bizarre experiences of the UFO-themed type, and which date back to the 1940s. I have interviewed Daryl a few times and I’m sharing with you some of the highlights of those experiences. There is a specific reason why. Namely, because Daryl’s encounters demonstrate the sheer level of weirdness that surrounds the UFO phenomenon. He told me:
