    Voyager spacecraft detects 'persistent hum' beyond our solar system: https://www.cnn.com/2021/05/11/world...scn/index.html

    (CNN)One of the Earth's longest-flying spacecraft has detected a "persistent hum" beyond our solar system, according to a new study.
    NASA's Voyager 1 launched on September 5 1977, from Cape Canaveral, Florida, aboard a Titan-Centaur rocket, just weeks after its sister craft, Voyager 2. Although they were initially designed to last five years, more than 43 years after they launched, the crafts are still sending back data as they explore interstellar space.
    Instruments aboard Voyager 1, which has moved past the edge of the solar system, through the solar system's border with interstellar space, known as the heliopause, and into the interstellar medium, have detected the sounds of plasma waves, according to research published Monday in the journal Nature Astronomy.

    A Cornell University-led team studied data transmitted from the spacecraft, sent from 14 billion miles away and discovered the interstellar gas emissions.

    I hope it finds Nyarlathotep soon and brings it back to Earth already.
    I was somewhere around Old Man Star, on the edge of Essence, when drugs began to take hold.

    Saw a pretty intresting 60 min clip on youtube about the pentagon ufo sightings and the on and off of a project to collect data about ufos. But from the sounds of it, feels like we are the ants and the aliens are the illusive humans.
    Got a feeling we are being watched by something but thwy arent ready to make proper contact or give us faster warp engines.
    Makes me wonder if the ufos are just some hi-tech alien drones.

    One of the HFY stories I'm writing has this as a premise. Aliens have made contact with multiple governments on Earth and would very much like to work with them (being in a tight spot themselves), but aliens don't trust any of them. Rather than gradually provide insights here and there or pick winners, they made a competition. They placed an ancient FTL-capable wreck in the asteroid belt and announced its existence. First nation/organization to retrieve it and reverse-engineer it wins. Cue the rat race, an unlikely winner, and the ceaseless attempts by major nations to steal the spoils.

    Considering the current technology if the book isn't placing the US in the obvious lead for this you'd have to write a world quite far ahead in the future. If military dominance would be assured the budget would be limitless to get that.

    If the aliens were going to make contact with anybody it would be the CEOs who own the US government.
    Look, the wages you withheld from the workmen who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of Hosts. You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves for slaughter.

    There's literally 0 reason why a UFO would have a live alien in it or why a developed interstellar civilization would give us warp engines if they observed our behaviour for longer than a day.

    Decided I want to do stargazing again. Bought a Celestron refractor telescope on Amazon for $75. Should be a good nighttime activity.

    Some shitty lowres footage shot by boomers who cant operate electronics is all there is. Aliens arent going to cross the universe only to fly around spooking pilots and fucking with grainfields. If they're here they'd either make contact or use their advanced technology to stay completely hidden from us.

    Or it could be what was suggested by Douglas Adams, bored extra-terrestrial rich kids with spaceships, that like to troll the ignorant yokels.

    Why would they do either? Do we care when zebras see us on safari? Sure, we don't needlessly disturb them and drive into the middle of the herd, but we don't go out of our way to remain hidden either.

    Well, at least it shows he's confident with his product. Should be an universal rule: every CEO is mandatory the first customer for their products.
