July 13, 2010 SETI Anomalies?

I recently added a new page to the blog "SETI Anomalies". I thought for a long time about having a place on my site where I can add links to articles associated with possible SETI anomalies or strange scientific findings that may be pertinent to the SETI issue....

July 08, 2010 My Drake Equation Values


I recently added a new page to my blog discussing my take on the values of the factors within the Drake Equation; the equation associated with the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI)....

July 28, 2008 An alien signal?

I was browsing the Net the other day looking for news in the SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) community. I found something that, for me, was both cautiously exciting and something I was reluctantly skeptical about. An ET signal had apparently been discovered by SETI@Home that passed through pretty much all of their strict filters. The first mention of it seems to be in the Sept. 1, 2004 issue of New Scientist magazine....

July 11, 2008 Artificial Astronomical Structures?

In Stephen Baxter's sci-fi books about extremely far future technologies he envisions a race using what are called "cosmic strings" to manipulate space and time for their own benefit. Cosmic strings are hypothesized to be the leftovers of the creation of the universe; fragments of the Big Bang itself. They are actually the extremely high gravitationally bound material that had filled in the "cracks" that were created from the Big Bang and its subsequent expansion. They are hypothesized to be many light years long and perhaps even strecth across the visible universe. The civilizations in Baxter's stories use these cosmic strings to fold space and time for travel and energy usage. Cosmic strings have never been observed in nature, but they are theoretically possible to exist and do not seem to break any laws of physics as we understand them. Their existence could possible be made known by their extreme gravitational effects, such as from "gravitational lensing" or through "gravity waves". Galactic Filaments and VoidsIn fact, the large-scale structuring of the univere's galaxies seem to point to the possibility of Cosmic String influences. Looked at from a universal scale, galaxies seem to collect along what seem to be filamentous strings as if from like spider webs leaving behind large bubbly "voids" almost completely empty of galaxies. It is not entirely known what has caused this, but Cosmic Strings have potentially been implicated....
