Beginning in May of 2008, in an effort to stem large amounts of requests, the UK government decided to proactively release their UFO files in several batches. Finally, five years later, they have released the final batch of files.
No more UK UFO files will be released in the foreseeable future, as the UK chose to close their UFO desk in 2009 and stopped taking UFO reports altogether. In fact, this batch of UFO files contains a lot of information pertaining to the conversations going on behind the scenes about the UFO desk closure. According to the files, the closure was recommended in a briefing on November 11, 2009 for Defence Minister Bob Ainsworth prepared by Carl Mantell of the RAF’s Air Command. The report says:
This recommends that MoD should ‘seek to reduce very significantly the UFO task which is consuming increasing resource, but produces no valuable defence output.’ Ainsworth was told that in more than 50 years ‘no UFO sighting reported to [MoD] has ever revealed anything to suggest an extra-terrestrial presence or military threat to the UK’ and ‘there is no defence benefit in [MoD] recording, collating, analysing or investigating UFO sightings.’ MoD had decided that ‘investigations into UFO sightings, even from more reliable sources, serve no useful purpose and merely divert air defence specialists from their primary tasks.… Read the full article ···»
Impact has grown from the Director General of Civil Aviation of Chile (DGAC) of an image showing a UFO (unidentified flying object) soaring in the sky.
A detailed image shows the bright object was recorded by Minera Collahuasi workers and was nearly 4300 meters high.
Those who have seen it said the sighting lasted for more than two hours, shining and moving more than 600 feet above the ground. So far no one knows what it is.
Date of discovery: June 29, 2014

Updated on July 3, 2014: I emailed the director of ISRO today and asked him about the video being theirs or not. I also asked them about the building on the asteroid. ISRO is here. http://www.isro.org/
When you first look at this asteroid it appears just like a normal rock in space, but with a more careful second glance you will see…it is inhabited. There is a black (flat black color) pyramid on this asteroid.
I have said many times…alien structures come in one of three types…grey metallic, flat black color, white ceramic color. Oh…I often find around the flat black are tiny grey metallic structures.
This is fantastic evidence from scientists in India at the ISRO labs. The detail of this massive pyramid is fantastic and you can see two other rectangle structures on it. The asteroid is probably not for mining as much as used as a tiny space station. An asteroid that size and a structure that size is a bit out of proportion…so this cannot be a mining facility. This massive structure is meant to be hidden on this small asteroid, so it is probably monitoring planets as it passes them without any primitive life discovering them…however, India was on top of it and caught it quickly.… Read the full article ···»
Saturn’s moon Titan harbors a very salty sea and experiences scattered emissions of methane.
NASA’s Cassini probe has been orbiting Saturn and its moons since 2005. The latest results from a gravitational and topographic examination of the moon Titan conducted over the last decade have revealed more about the moon’s interior. According to a NASA statement, the data show that Titan’s interior ocean might be as salty as Earth’s Dead Sea.
Titan must be relatively dense given the gravitational readings, suggesting that its ocean is likely a very salty brine; the dissolved salts in the water probably consist of sulfur, sodium, and potassium. This extreme saltiness might mean that Titan’s ocean is less likely to be habitable, although past conditions might have been more hospitable.
The data also show that the thickness of the icy shell varies somewhat from location to location; this is likely due to the stiffness of the shell, which also suggests that the interior ocean is gradually turning to ice itself. This process could alter how scientists asses the habitability of Titan’s ocean because crystallization limits the exchange of material between Titan’s surface and the ocean.
The new findings might also solve the mystery of why Titan’s atmosphere is five percent methane. Methane breaks down due to sunlight over brief spans of geological time, which means something must be refueling Titan’s atmosphere with methane.… Read the full article ···»
After ten years of travel, the Rosetta Satellite will approach a fast-moving comet in an effort to orbit and ultimately land on its surface. The European Space Agency (ESA) has begun altering the satellite’s orbital trajectory by performing “big burns”–aimed at changing the velocity of the satellite. Once Rosetta has slowed down to a proper speed, the satellite approach Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, which is moving quickly through space.
Rosetta started its journey in March 2004, its primary purpose set on reaching Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. In 2011, the satellite was shut down and put in temporary hibernation in order to conserve its computer and heating programs. For three years, the space agency did not exchange any communication with Rosetta, until the Wake Up Rosetta campaign was launched on Jan. 20 earlier this year.
The wake-up call triggered Rosetta’s internal alarm clock and renewing contact with the ESA. Since its reawakening, the satellite has entered into the final phase of the Rosetta mission. The space agency began administering orbital corrections in May, and performed four “big burns” since then, the most recent burn occurring on Wednesday, July 2. The next orbital alteration will occur July 9. Weekly burns, called “Far Approach Trajectory” corrections, will be ordered from now on.
Using an onboard navigation camera called NAVCAM, Rosetta was able to track down the comet and determine its position.… Read the full article ···»
