Mac's UFO News - August 2012 (Video)

Second UFO Filmed By NASA's Mars Curiosity Rover (Video)

September 10, 2012 / Gale Crater, Mars
Yahoo News posted this photo and others today. As I looked over several, I noticed a strange flying object in one that is clearly seen above the mountains in the distance.
Someone found a HD version of the photo and made a cool video of it. You should check out the photos on Yahoo because Yahoo photo links usually only stay around for several weeks. This photo is a bit baffling. The object could be a UFO or a flying insect...yeah NASA doesn't tell the public everything. If they said life (insect or animal) was discovered on Mars, every country with a space program would be sending Mars probes. NASA would fall behind the ESA and JAXA in importance...they don't want that. They want to Bogart the info for national security reasons.

Southern Minas, Brazil - 09-26-12
Images recorded by four teenagers on Sunday (26) in Three Points (MG) raise speculations about the supposed appearance of a flying saucer in southern Minas. The video was uploaded by Internet users Lais Aparecida da Silva Correia to the "Vc in G1."
Images were recorded around 1500 hrs in the backyard of a house in the neighborhood Philadelphia, where the children played in the yard with a camera.
In the video, the UFO (Unidentified Flying Object) appears between the clouds. When kids drive the zoom of the equipment, the object is in focus for a few seconds in the center of the screen.
Shortly after, the object disappears quickly. During recording, you can hear the expression of astonishment adolescents. "You can see just right; a ship, I'm sure," say the children.
According to the lawyer Lais Aparecida da Silva Correia, who uploaded the video, everyone was scared after the sighting.
"They saw something strange in the sky and began to shout. Then they called the adults. It seemed like a flying ship. We thought best to send the video to know what actually it is," she said.
The report of the G1 southern Minas contacted by email with a spokesperson for the Brazilian Air Force (FAB), but until this publication has not received feedback on registering a UFO in airspace South of Minas Gerais.
(Editor's Note: I think you will find this video of interest. I must say, it was one of the most difficult videos to work with I have ever encountered. If you don't believe me, see the original at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I9ImLzDbdq4.
I have stablized and taken all of the pixelation out of it I could. See what you think.)

New habitability model considers possibility of underground life


A new scientific model for understanding habitable environments on other planets was recently presented at the British Science Festival in Aberdeen.

Phys.org explains that an extraterrestrial environment is considered habitable if it is suitable for life “as we know it.” And, as Sean McMahon from the University of Aberdeen’s School of Geosciences explains, “Life ‘as we know it’ requires liquid water.” Previous models for considering habitability have only considered surface environments. But the new model, presented on Friday, September 7, expands environments in which scientists might find life to include subsurface environments.

Scientists base their assumptions about life elsewhere in the universe on Earth-based life. But as McMahon points out, “We now know that many micro-organisms—perhaps half of all living things on Earth—reside deep in the rocky crust of the planet, not on the surface.” So it only seems natural to include subterranean environments when considering the potential habitability of an alien world.
The new habitability model developed by University of Aberdeen scientists takes into account a planet’s potential for underground water, and, therefore life. Based on this model, the team says habitable planets could be much more widespread than previously thought.
