NASA feed 'goes down as horseshoe UFO appears on ISS live cam' (http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/weird-news/nasa-feed-goes-down-horseshoe-7783713)
This is a fairly common occurrence. You can watch the live feed and every now and then something shows up. There are people with nothing else to do that watch all the time and take screen shots as warranted. So the days of NASA editing pictures and tape before the public sees it is over.


NASA has been accused of an alien cover up after a live ISS feed appearing to show a horseshoe UFO (http://www.mirror.co.uk/all-about/ufos) suddenly went down.

Conspiracy theorists are having a field day over the sighting of the strange U-shaped object hovering on the horizon of the the International Space Station.


They claim NASA 'cut the live feed' after the glowing blue object flew too close to the space station.


Some have even gone as far to say NASA's funding should be cut over their "great alien deception".


The mysterious UFO was first spotted by Scott Waring of UFO Sightings Daily as he watched the live stream.


He then passed the footage on to alien hunter Tyler Glockner who uploaded the video to is YouTube channel secureteam10 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b7tlUS6bx04) .

Is prob'ly from the Crab nebula.

Could Nasa's James Webb Space Telescope detect alien life?...
:huh:
Could Nasa's James Webb Space Telescope detect alien life?
7 September 2018 - If it does launch as currently scheduled in 2021, it will be 14 years late. When finally in position, though - orbiting the Sun 1.5 million km from Earth - Nasa's James Webb Space Telescope promises an astronomical revolution.



The US space agency boasts that it will literally "look back in time to see the very first galaxies that formed in the early Universe". As if those claims were not bold enough, scientists have now surmised that the eventual successor to the world famous and beloved Hubble Space Telescope may - thanks to its 6.5m golden mirror and exquisitely sensitive cameras - have a another extraordinary talent. The JWST, as it is called, may be able to look for signs of alien life - detecting whether atmospheres of planets orbiting nearby stars are being modified by that life.

Webb contains novel technologies that have never previously been flown in space



Despite this, the project to build it narrowly survived cancellation by the US Government in 2011. That was in no small part down to its (perhaps appropriately) astronomical cost - an estimated $10bn rather than its originally planned $1bn. Back on Earth, however, astronomers - including the University of Washington team who proposed "life-detection" observations using the telescope - are unerringly thrilled at the prospect of its launch.



How do you detect life on distant planets?

University of Washington astronomer Joshua Krissansen-Totton and his team have looked into whether the telescope could detect signs of what they call "biosignatures" in the atmospheres of planets that are orbiting a nearby star. "We could do these life-detection observations in the next few years," says Mr Krissansen-Totton. The basis for this search may lie in JWST being so sensitive to light that it could pick up so-called "atmospheric chemical disequilibrium". It may not be a catchy term, but it is an idea with a long heritage, promoted by celebrated scientists James Lovelock and Carl Sagan. The reasoning is that if all life on Earth disappeared tomorrow, the many gases which make up our atmosphere would undergo natural chemical reactions, and the atmosphere would slowly revert to a different chemical mixture. It is continually held away from this state by organisms on our planet expelling waste gases as they live.

Because of this, searching for signs of oxygen (or its chemical cousin ozone) has long been thought to be a good way of finding life. But this does rest on the assumption that extraterrestrial life runs by the same biological rules as our own. It might not. Therefore, assessing atmospheric chemical disequilibrium - looking for other gases and figuring out how far out of kilter from "normal' a planet's atmosphere sits - could be key to finding alien life of any kind. The chemical make-up of the atmosphere of a planet orbitin g another star can be measured in light by carefully measuring the minuscule dip in starlight as the planet passes between us and the star during the planet's orbit. The gases in the planet's atmosphere cause the light reduction to vary with the wavelength - or colour - of light, revealing information about how much of each chemical is present.
