Alien organisms found in upper atmosphere?

Published on 20 Sep 2013 By TheLifebeyondearth
Large alien organisms have been found in Wakefield -- and they are definitely not funny-shaped sticks of rhubarb.
The Yorkshire city, famous for producing the pink vegetable, was the landing site for a balloon which brought back the extra-terrestrial particles after a trip to the edge of space.
Molecular biologist Prof Milton Wainwright, who led the project, said the find could prove revolutionary.
He added: "People might assume these biological particles drifted up from Earth but a particle of the size we found cannot be lifted to such heights."

The balloon, launched near Chester by the Sheffield University team, carried sensors which were only exposed after it was between 14 and 17 miles above the Earth.
When it touched down in West Yorkshire it had picked up an algae fragment and "biological entities" said to be of an unusual size.
Prof Wainwright said: "If life does continue to arrive from space then we have to completely change our view of biology and evolution.

"In the absence of a mechanism by which large particles like these can be transported to the stratosphere, we can only conclude that the biological entities originated from space.
"Our conclusion is that life is continually arriving to Earth from space. Life is not restricted to this planet and it almost certainly did not originate here."
The team will try the test again next month to coincide with a meteorite shower when there will be large amounts of cosmic dust.
"It is hoped more unusual organisms will be found, confirming the experiment's success.

UFO hacker’s mother writes book on 10 year battle to avoid US extradition

Janis Sharp, the mother of UFO hacker Gary McKinnon, is writing a book about her 10 year plight to keep her son from being extradited to the United States to spend the rest of his life in prison for hacking into government computers. An attorney for the US called it the biggest military hack of all time.

The opposition to the attempts by the United States to extradite McKinnon began with a whisper that turned into a roar, largely led by Sharp.
McKinnon was first arrested and questioned in March of 2002. After watching a panel of witnesses brought to the National Press Club in Washington D.C. in 2001 who all claimed to have knowledge of a cover-up regarding what the government knows about UFOs, McKinnon was convinced the US government knew more than it was sharing. He took it upon himself to hack into government computers to find hidden evidence.
He says he found a photograph that showed a large cigar-shaped UFO over the “northern hemisphere.” He also saw a ship’s log that listed non-terrestrial officers. This was evidence to McKinnon that the US had its own space fleet. Unfortunately, McKinnon was not able to download any of this alleged evidence.
When he was arrested in March 2002 McKinnon was offered the chance to serve a three or four year sentence, but he felt his UFO evidence was strong enough to negotiate a better deal. The US did not feel the same, and instead in November of 2004 the US federal grand jury charged him with seven counts of computer-related crimes that carried a maximum of 10 years in prison for each count.

At this point, a seemingly never ending string of appeals began. For the next four years appeals to keep McKinnon from being extradited failed. It was looking pretty grim for McKinnon, but several things turned the tides. First, in 2008 McKinnon was diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome, a form of autism. Some studies have indicated that people suffering from Asperger’s have higher rates of suicide, and Sharp contended that she feared McKinnon would kill himself if he had to serve time in a US prison.
At first McKinnon’s condition did not help his case. The Home Secretary rejected a request to stop his extradition based off of his diagnosis of Asperger’s. The European Court of Human Rights also refused an application for a stay of the extradition.
2009 was when things began to look up for McKinnon. His lawyer was granted permission to review the decision of the Home Secretary. During this time the news picked up on the story with frequent interviews of Sharp. Celebrities also began to support McKinnon’s cause. The topic of the extradition agreement between the US and Britain also became a hot topic, with many feeling it was too heavily biased towards the US.
In the fervor, then Tory leader David Cameron, jumped in to support a review of extradition laws and said McKinnon is “a vulnerable young man and I see no compassion in sending him thousands of miles away from his home and loved ones to face trial.”
When Cameron became Prime Minister the conversation was brought to a new level. It now became a topic in conversation between Cameron and President Obama. Sharp called for Cameron to make good on his promises to support McKinnon. The Wikileaks also played a role, as they had shown that the previous Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, had requested that the US allow McKinnon to be tried in the UK. The US refused.
Finally, with mounting public pressure, Cameron and Obama agreed to review the extradition laws, and Obama said he would leave it to the British government to come up with a “just conclusion” in regards to McKinnon. In October 2012 the Home Secretary decided that McKinnon would not be extradited, and in December the Crown Prosecution Service announced that McKinnon would not be charged with any crimes. McKinnon and Sharp had finally won.

This overview does not do Sharp’s role in this incredible saga justice. The publishers for her new book write, “The US judiciary had all the might of the world’s greatest power. But it had not reckoned on Gary’s mother.” The book, Saving Gary McKinnon: A Mother’s Story, will be released next week on September 17, 2013. You can pre-order a copy at the publisher’s website.

Filmmakers release first clip from Skinwalker Ranch movie

On Friday, September 13, filmmakers provided the first look at the upcoming found-footage paranormal thriller Skinwalker Ranch.

The filmmakers posted the following description with this video clip:
In 2010 Skinwalker Ranch gained media attention after experiencing a wide range of unexplained phenomena. Reports ranged from UFO sightings to livestock mutilation, but maybe most notable was the disappearance of ranch owner Hoyt Miller’s eight year old son, Cody on November 11, 2010. Close to a year later, Modern Defense Enterprises (MDE) has sent a team of experts to document and investigate the mysterious occurrences, which only escalate upon their arrival…
Although this ranch sounds like a mysterious and trilling place developed by creative Hollywood writers, Skinwalker Ranch actually exists. The sci-fi website describes that the ranch “is an area near Ballard, Utah where many reports of cattle mutilation, UFOs, and other strange phenomena have been reported for years. It’s located next to the Ute Indian Reservation, and skin-walkers have long been the talk of Native American legend, so you can see how the connections are made.”

For those familiar with the real Skinwalker Ranch, the “Modern Defense Enterprises” team referenced in the movie’s description sounds like a reference to Robert Bigelow’s National Institute for Discovery Science (NIDSci), which reportedly bought the ranch in 1996 to investigate reports of varied paranormal activity.
Deep Studios, a Utah production company, is the team behind the Skinwalker Ranch movie. The film will reportedly be released in theaters and available on-demand just before Halloween on October 30.

The Condon Report: Decades-old Death Nail, or a Call for Action?

By Micah Hanks

Ever since the late 1960s, UFO research has been a very different animal from what existed in it’s early years, or what some might call the “golden age” of flying saucers. It was during this magical period, spanning the years between Kenneth Arnold’s famous sighting of UFOs over Mount Rainier in 1947, and the official closure of the Air Force’s Project Blue Book toward the end of 1969, that something novel appeared to be taking place in our skies. Perhaps more importantly, there was also a greater adherence to scientific study of that novel and, at times, enigmatic phenomenon.
However, history shows that as the USAF became increasingly frustrated with their inability to resolve the UFO issue, a cancer began to set in which would ultimately change the field of UFO research forever. Project Blue Book’s attitudes toward UFO investigation had gone from serious intrigue at the outset, especially under it’s initial project head, Edward Ruppelt, to a sort of preemptive cynicism in its final years. By the mid 1960s, the USAF was getting to a point of being content with dropping the entire matter, should an element manage to come along that would provide a vehicle for cleansing its hands.
That vehicle did eventually arrive, in what became know as the Condon Committee, headed by University of Colorado physicist Edward U. Condon (pictured above). For many, Condon and his team’s final report on UFOs was the ultimate death nail in serious UFO studies, with a number of researchers since its issuance claiming that Condon had completely lacked objectivity, and had perhaps even conspired to demolish the credibility of UFO research by scientific institutions altogether.


Information that includes private correspondence between members of the committee (most notably what is called the “Lowe Memorandum”) do show, to an extent, that the Condon Committee may have been somewhat less than purely objective in their study, which led to views that would not look favorably on UFO research. Still, what is often overlooked is that there were also aspects of the committee’s determinations which managed to lend not just credibility to a few UFO reports, but even to the argument for continued UFO studies in the future.
For the most part, the Condon Committee’s determinations about the scientific study of UFOs are viewed by the UFO community, even today, as having been damaging to the serious academic study of UFOs. Much the same, skeptical writers often cite these determinations in their arguments against UFO studies. Bob Caroll, author of The Skeptic’s Dictionary, points this out in the book’s entry on UFOs (which can also be read online at, where he notes that:
UFOlogists are unimpressed with the Condon Report… Edward U. Condon was the head of a scientific research team which was contracted to the University of Colorado to examine the UFO issue. His report concluded that “nothing has come from the study of UFOs in the past 21 years that has added to scientific knowledge…further extensive study of UFOs probably cannot be justified in the expectation that science will be advanced thereby.”
However, as opposed to taking this statement from the report as meaning, “see, there is no reason scientists should want to study UFOs,” perhaps we should look at it through a less biased lens. In the statement Carol quotes above, the Condon report merely argues that based on the determinations made by the committee at that time, no data had been accumulated that advanced scientific knowledge, and that if UFO studies were indeed to continue, one should not be hopeful that, for instance, doing so will reveal the secrets of free energy, anti-gravity, or perhaps as Condon and his committee had more specifically been alluding, the revelation that intelligent life exists elsewhere in the universe. Still, none of this means that UFOs are pure bunk, or that perhaps there shouldn’t be scientific studies of them.
In fact, the Condon Report even states, in a minority of cases, that in the midst of what appeared to be some objective phenomenon taking place, no clear explanation for that phenomenon existed, and that all UFOs could thus not be ruled out so easily as misidentifications or hoaxes.


Additionally, there were times where Condon himself attempted to correct public opinion on the matter; in a recent review I wrote of the reissue of John Keel’s classic book, Operation Trojan Horse, I noted a unique statement Keel quoted from Condon, which explicitly states that he didn’t make the case for no future studies of UFOs. Below is the relevant portion from my review:
The infamous Condon Committee, credited in years since with “debunking” UFOs (and doing so essentially for the benefit of the U.S. Air Force), had nonetheless concluded that there were some UFO reports that seemed both valid, and inexplicable. However, this alone had not convinced Condon and his team that UFO phenomenon represented extraterrestrial technology. “To find clear, unambiguous evidence on this point would be a scientific discovery of the first magnitude,” Condon would say in 1969, “one which I would be happy to make. We found no such evidence, and so state in our report.” Condon however acknowledged that, “contrary to popular belief, we do not rule out all future study (of UFOs).”
Condon was criticized for holding such “scientific” views, and was indeed heralded as a UFO debunker, along with the panel of scientists who produced the University of Colorado UFO study. The problem, of course, is that Condon was being completely scientific, despite there being some evidence that he had indeed shown biases toward disbelief before undertaking the project Hence, it is interesting to note here that debunker Philip J. Klass would similarly argue that members of the committee had shown biases, which he felt had been preemptively in support of UFO evidence, of all things. If this shows us anything, it is something that, unfortunately, a few of us are already well aware of: that “objectivity” is required in all instances where scientific determinations are to be made, and in a few instances, debunkers (like Klass) have perhaps showed even less objectivity than those die-hard “believers”.


Condon, on the other hand, should not be considered blameless. Even prior to the release of the study’s findings with the Condon Report, Condon had spoken publicly about UFOs, where he took an obviously dismissive attitude. Still, despite his personal leanings, it is novel in retrospect to look at the actual wording of portions of the Condon Report used by both believers, and skeptics, to construe an argument that is seen as being “against” UFOs. In truth, rather than “debunking” anything, what the famous Condon report really shows is that while in the minority, there are some bonafide “unknowns” amidst data collected regarding UFOs, and that if anything, maybe there should be a call for even greater scientific rigor in the continuation of UFO studies, if any actual conclusions are ever to be drawn.
