Planets that are deliberately hidden from humans

It is hard to believe that during the 13 billion years of the existence of the Universe in space no intelligent civilization has developed. So why haven’t we met anyone yet?

Is humanity the only rational race – this is the question hundreds of scientists are asking. The answer to it was never received, although we put our own telescopes into orbit and looked into the most remote corners of the Universe. Are there really no aliens or do they just not want to be found?

Fermi paradox

There are trillions of stars in our galaxy. Studies show that many of them have planets, with 1-2 even in a potential habitat zone. Thus, in the course of simple calculations, astronomers determined that only in the Milky Way there are about 17 billion planets where life could have originated.

Based on all this, physicist Enrico Fermi formulated his paradox. The scientist said that in this situation, either our understanding of nature or the methods of observation are fundamentally wrong. Have all the time not even some traces of the vital activity of other races — radio waves or other radiation — have reached us?

It would be foolish to say that intelligent life really does not exist. Simple math says the opposite. Talking about underdeveloped observing systems is also inappropriate – we observe the cosmos at different periods of its life and literally study the history of the Galaxy . But even there is no sign of the existence of other civilizations. Are we under the dome of ignorance?

Are they hiding from us?

David Kipping of Harvard and Alex Tichy of Columbia University offer their explanation of the problem. According to a published article, alien civilizations are simply hiding from us. They have technologies that can literally “wipe” the emitted radiation in almost all spectra. And this is not to mention the concealment of life on the planets from prying eyes.

Another theory suggests that the Milky Way already has a highly developed cosmic community . It strictly controls any potentially inhabited planets with intelligent life and hides the real state of affairs from underdeveloped civilizations. Among them is humanity. This explains why all our searches are so unsuccessful.

The question remains open, why hide their existence from others? There are several options for this. Aliens can do this for their own safety. During its short history, mankind has managed to conduct hundreds of wars and the state of affairs does not change much, although the scale of conflicts has slightly decreased.

Now imagine wars on a cosmic scale . In such matters, hiding the location of one’s home planet or colonies is vital.

It is possible that they are hiding the truth from us for their own benefit. What will happen to society if reliable information appears about the existence of another highly developed race? Fear will envelop people, because we will face an adversary who can erase all of humanity with the click of a finger (or tentacle). Ignorance is calm.

In any case, it will not last forever. With the help of more powerful telescopes or space travel, humanity will answer the most important question – are we alone in the universe.

NASA published pictures of two giant asteroids

NASA published an amazing image of two giant asteroids traveling in the asteroid belt, both of which are larger than some of the cities in the world.

The American Space Agency shared a snapshot that tracks the movement of the large asteroids Lina and Klotho, located in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter. The Lina is about 37 miles (60 km) in diameter and has more than 2,000 days in orbit around the Sun. Klotho is slightly larger, having 50.9 miles (82 km) in diameter and has a 1596-day orbit around our main star.

NASA observed space rocks using the NEOWISE telescope. He also states on his official website:

“appearing as rows of orange dots, the brightest sets of dots belong to the asteroids of Klotho and Lina. Both rotate in the main asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter, while smaller and more distant asteroids can also be seen on this image ”

These space objects were photographed by NEOWISE as part of the Wise mission (Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer) asteroid hunting project. 

Cosmic stones within the asteroid belt supposedly pose almost no danger to the Earth, due to the role that Jupiter plays in the solar system. The giant planet has such a powerful gravitational attraction that it actually helps to keep the asteroid belt in place, so objects do not travel throughout the system.

If Jupiter did not use its gravitational pull on these objects in the belt, the inner planets would be constantly at risk of collisions with large asteroids.

“The presence of Jupiter actually protects Mercury, Venus, Earth, and Mars from repeated collisions with asteroids!”, The NASA statement said.

The probability of a major asteroid colliding with the Earth is one in 300,000 chance. However, such a prospect is possible, NASA says.

A “Meteorite” falls in Nigeria destroying more than 100 houses and leaving a huge crater

On the morning of Saturday 28 March 2020, a large meteorite crashed in Akure (Nigeria), destroying more than 100 houses and leaving a 21-meter crater on the ground. Experts from the Awbaowo University of Obafemi (Nigeria) denied the local police who initially claimed that a bomb explosion had created the 21-meter crater.

According to Nigerian sources, the explosion destroyed the Akure-OVO road and seriously damaged dozens of houses, from 50 to 100, as well as schools and churches.

It is interesting that initially the authorities denied the meteorite’s fall and claimed that the cause for the explosion was a truck with explosives, which was transported to a neighboring state. Ondo State Governor Rotimi Akeredolu said the blast was an accident.

Then the version changed and the truck was no longer just transporting explosives, but it was supposedly a terrorist act.

Now, a team of experts and scientists came to the conclusion that everything that happened was a fall of a large meteorite.

The blast that shook Akure, the state capital of Ondo, on Saturday, was caused by a giant cosmic rock, a team of experts concluded.

Led by Adepelumi Adekunle, a professor of geophysics and seismic engineering at Obafemi Avolovo University, the team said that the meteorite entered the atmosphere of our planet at a “43 degree angle”.

Adepelumi Adekunle’s report reads:

“My research team conducted a detailed analysis of the impact site. A round impact crater was discovered with a diameter of 21 m and a depth of 7.8 m, which indicates a natural phenomenon.

– It was found that water is oozing from the edges of the crater. Preliminary field studies of vibration, noise, seismicity, analysis of water, radioactivity, rocks and soil were carried out.

“Our findings suggest that the impact of the explosion covers a radius of 1 km from the vicinity of the crater.” No signs of fire or burning were found in the vicinity. “

“No signs of radioactive radiation were found within the crater and in the immediate vicinity of it. Field data indicate that a meteorite from the asteroid belt was moving at high speed from space, and fell at an angle of 43 degrees in the southwestern part of the country “

A local source said that after the incident, no one was missing and no one was killed. The most interesting thing in the report is the mention that “unusual stones and strange metal objects” were found inside the crater. So what actually fell in Nigeria – a meteorite or a UFO?

Something strange is happening with the interstellar comet 2I / Borisov

When astronomers see something in the Universe that at first glance seems to be one of a kind, this will certainly cause great excitement and attention.

This mysterious guest from the depths of space first attracted the attention of celestial observers at the end of August 2019, when it was officially discovered sweeping through the solar system along a trajectory indicating interstellar origin.

After analyzing the object, astronomers identified it as a comet called Comet 21 / Borisov, which is the first identified comet and the second observable interstellar alien after the infamous Oumuamua, who arrived here from another star.

NASA claims that they do not know where and when the comet began to move towards our Sun. Gravity of the Sun slightly deflects its trajectory, but cannot capture it due to the shape of the orbit and its high speed of about 160,934 km / h.

Hubble showed that the comet’s heart, a loose accumulation of ice and dust particles, was probably no more than 975 meters across, about the length of nine football fields.

Now, this month, astronomers have discovered that something strange is happening by checking the object.

In the next video, nemesis maturity explains what happens to this mysterious interstellar guest.
