You can understand why Americans have such a warped sense of reality when this is the sort of nonsense being reported by the mainstream media. It's pathetic that ABC News would report such a story.

Why UFO's and aliens are always captured using poor cameras ? Such that the things in pics/videos are actually unidentifiable :s  

And then people start making up story about it.  :/

the eyes of the deer is being highlighted by the IR lights around the camera, you can't see the eyes on the deer because the whole deer is overexposed form the lights. The eyes are so bright they reflect light back on to the lens/lens protection giving the effect of light floating above the deer.

HawkMan... the deer was looking and puzzling at the lights... it was facing the lights and the camera catch took the picture when there was nothing would reflect the light.  It's in the woods.  There's no other objects around.  Only deers.  That picture there on the first post, the deer was not facing towards the camera... It was looking at the strange lights.

I agreed, there were not lights until later and the strange lights appears. But I still doubt that are UFO's, it could pretty much like they were saying that could be government drones or anything else made by humans.

Why is that ?

 

It is a mystery, and many people enjoy reading about a mystery.

This is an outdoor camera strapped to a tree, designed to capture animals.

 

No one was there. It happened to catch strange lights.

Why is that ?

Because they're reporting a story that gives the impression that aliens or secret government drones are involved when there is absolutely no evidence to support that. This story has zero journalistic integrity, it's a pure ratings / entertainment piece. There was no attempt to ascertain what was responsible for the lights in the pictures and no context was given. All it does is reinforce the beliefs of those believe in aliens or government conspiracies.

Except that didn't give any impression of either.  They just recounted a story by the couple and what they caught on camera.  It doesn't need journalistic integrity when it makes no assumptions or claims, other than these people don't know what is on camera.  It absolutely is an entertainment piece, but what is the harm in that?  The only thing reinforcing people's beliefs are assumptions and this neither helps nor impedes that happening.

 

 

I watched it before seeing it here and my thoughts were that it was interesting and then moved on.  I received no impressions from the video.

 

 

The reporter even showed where one guy didn't necessarily think it was aliens.  You need to boil down the base meaning of UFO:  unidentified flying object.  It does not mean a flying craft with green men in it.  It just means that nobody (yet) knows what it is.

The very act of reporting on it is a journalistic decision and to report on something without any context is irresponsible. It's a fluff piece that shouldn't have been reported as news.

Yeah, that's because he suggested it could be a government drone. And you know very well that these sort of things are frequently interpreted as evidence of alien life.

 

This is simply bad journalism.

The fact that you use this to further your agenda that Americans somehow cannot get accurate news and have a warped sense of reality is pretty ridiculous.

 

In fact, I find that in itself more ridiculous than the video itself.

It is a real event, and a mystery.

 

What more do you need as 'News' ?

 

What people do not need is mindless censorship.

As of right now, it ranks right up there with other faked UFO shots.

It certainly is not 'scientific' to pre-decide, that 'I do not believe in something; therefore any evidence to the contrary is fake'.

 

These are images of an unidentified flying object.

 

Everyone is free to decide for themselves, what it may or may not be.

 

Take your poor attempts at censorship elsewhere.

One day when Earth is finally taken over by the aliens, then those people would go, "now that is the real aliens."

First of all, I believe in providing proof before claiming anything is real.  Jumping to assumptions of something being real is right up there with discussions about how real the stories in the Bible are.

 

Second, you have no right, nor business telling me where to go unless you are a moderator.

 

You rally against censorship while trying to provide censorship yourself.  That is textbook hypocrisy.

      China's successor to the Shenzhou crew capsule descends back to the earth successfully
      by Ather Fawaz

      Image via CASC On Tuesday, China's next-generation crew capsule's prototype launched atop a Long March 5B rocket at 06:00 AM Eastern Time from the coastal Wenchang Satellite Launch Center on Hainan island. Once at the designated altitude, the unnamed spacecraft performed a series of maneuvers successfully.

      And as scheduled, the spacecraft has now touched down safely in the Dongfeng desert area at 01:49 AM Eastern Time. The crew capsule used its heat shield and parachute systems to descend safely towards the earth after the planned deorbital burn and separation of crew and service modules. During the test flight, the spacecraft also lofted a prototype inflatable cargo reentry system for testing purposes as well.

      Image via CASC The upcoming space capsule has two variants. One weighs 14 metric tons while the other weighs 21 metric tons. The latter, which is designed for deep space, was tested during this flight. This Chinese crew capsule is set to be the successor of the Shenzhou space capsule, which has launched all six of the country's crewed spaceflights to date. The successor is built by the China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation (CASC) and is designed to carry up to seven astronauts (compared to Shenzhou's capacity of three).

      Image via CASC This successful test allows China to proceed with a potential July mission to send an orbiter and rover to Mars. It also clears the Long March 5B rocket for lofting modules as heavy as 22-metric-tons for China’s future space flights into the lower earth orbit.

      Progress 75 arrives at the International Space Station with nearly 3 tons of supplies
      by Ather Fawaz

      On April 25, 01:51 GMT, the Progress 75 spacecraft launched atop the Soyuz rocket from Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan. The Russian spacecraft was carrying over 2.7 metric tons of propellant, food, and other supplies. Less than 3.5 hours later, at 05:12 GMT, it docked at the International Space Station (ISS) 260 miles (418 kilometers) over northwest China.

      Image via NASA TV Progress 75 is set to remain at the ISS until December. The spacecraft (one of the four spacecraft currently in use for resupplying) will be resupplying three astronauts on board the ISS: Chris Cassidy, Anatoli Ivanishin, and Ivan Vagner.

      However, in under a month, the number is set to increase with the arrival of Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley with SpaceX's upcoming maiden manned flight onboard the Crew Dragon in May. It will be the first orbital human spaceflight to launch from the United States since NASA's space shuttle fleet was retired nine years back in July 2011. Should things go according to plan, SpaceX will be cleared to start operational crewed missions to and from the ISS.

      After completing its stay till December this year, Progress 75 will undock from the space station and descend towards the earth before burning up in its atmosphere, spelling an end to its operational lifecycle.

      SSTL announces Lunar Pathfinder comms satellite with a launch due in 2022
      by Paul Hill



      The UK-based firm, Surrey Satellite Technology Ltd (SSTL), has announced that it’s beginning work on a lunar data-relay spacecraft called Lunar Pathfinder. The spacecraft is expected to launch in Q4 2022 and will offer affordable communications services to lunar missions via S-band and UHF links to the Moon’s surface and orbit, and an X-band link back to the Earth.

      The 280 kg spacecraft will assist missions in the polar region and on the far side of the moon. This will allow projects to forego developing their own relay comms and use the more affordable Lunar Pathfinder. According to SSTL, the 2022 launch means it will be able to assist NASA’s Artemis programme which seeks to put the first American woman and the next American man at the lunar south pole by 2024 and in orbit around the Moon by 2028.

      Commenting on the project, Phil Brownnett, SSTL’s Managing Director, said:

      Aside from its Lunar Pathfinder project, SSTL said it has also been working on plans for a constellation of spacecraft that it hopes to insert into lunar orbit. This will provide enhanced communications, including navigation services, on the Moon. It hopes this technology will help with activities “from exploration to commercial exploitation and even tourism.”

      NASA and SpaceX to meet and discuss Crew Dragon in Hawthorne on Thursday
      by Ather Fawaz

      Today, the NASA Administrator, Jim Bridenstine, tweeted he will be meeting Elon Musk on Thursday at the SpaceX headquarters in Hawthorne, California. Bridenstine will be discussing the progress of SpaceX on Crew Dragon, a spacecraft that the company is collaborating on with NASA. Accompanying the two men will be Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley, two astronauts who are scheduled to take flight on Crew Dragon's Demo-2 flight test to the International Space Station.

      This is following the recent updates by SpaceX and Elon Musk regarding another project. On September 29, Musk unveiled his plans for putting SpaceX's gargantuan spacecraft dubbed Starship in orbit in half a year, in a presentation at the company's Boca Chica test site near Brownsville, Texas. Starship is the company's initiative for space travel and for inhabiting other planets in the future, as Musk claimed in his tweet.

      But the presentation invited some critique by Jim Bridenstine, the NASA Administrator, vis-à-vis the affiliation between SpaceX and NASA on Crew Dragon. Bridenstine reminded the entrepreneur via a tweet that NASA's Commercial Crew was still "years behind schedule", called for the "the same level of enthusiasm focused on the investments of the American taxpayer", and signaled that "it's time to deliver."

      Since then, it's been back and forth between the two of them. Musk responded to the administrator's tweet by clarifying at the presentation that only a handful of resources were being invested into Starship and that whereas "the vast majority of our resources are [focused] on Falcon and Dragon, especially Crew Dragon."

      As such, how things unfold at the meeting on Thursday will certainly be interesting. There might even be a live stream, so stay on the lookout on Bridenstine's twitter account.

      As always, we're keen on hearing your thoughts. You can sound off in the comments section below!

      Facebook confirms it is working on internet-beaming satellite dubbed Athena
      by Jay Bonggolto

      PointView Tech, a subsidiary of Facebook, was reportedly building a multi-million dollar experimental satellite meant to deliver internet to Earth from orbit. The secret project was spotted last May on a filing with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), though Facebook remained mum on the technology, until now.

      The social networking giant has confirmed to CNET that it is developing a satellite technology dubbed Athena which will work to beam data from low-Earth orbit to rural areas where internet connectivity is limited or unavailable. Facebook didn't share specific details of the project, but it will likely compete with similar initiatives being undertaken by OneWeb and SpaceX. According to the FCC filing, Athena could provide broadband connectivity that's 10 times faster than SpaceX’s Starlink Internet satellites.

      Wired also reports that the satellite is set for space launch in early 2019 in pursuit of its ambitious efforts to bring people from every corner of the world online. In June 2017, Aquila, Facebook's solar-powered drone designed to provide internet connectivity to remote areas, successfully landed during its second test flight. However, that project was shut down last month after Facebook decided it would no longer build its own aircraft and instead continue its partnership with Airbus to develop a high altitude platform station.

      With Athena now official, it's interesting to see how Facebook's move to deliver internet from orbit using millimeter wave radio signals will pan out.
