This Earth Day, Tuesday, April 22, three former NASA astronauts will present new evidence that our planet has experienced many more large-scale asteroid impacts over the past decade than previously thought… three to ten times more, in fact. A new visualization of data from a nuclear weapons warning network, to be unveiled by B612 Foundation CEO Ed Lu during the evening event at Seattle's Museum of Flight, shows that "the only thing preventing a catastrophe from a 'city-killer' sized asteroid is blind luck."

Happy Easter, Everyone!

Investigators have also determined that the missing jet was equipped with four emergency locator transmitters, or ELTs. When triggered by a crash, they are designed to transmit their location to a satellite.

The ELTs were located at the plane's front door, its rear door, in the fuselage and in the cockpit, said the source, who was puzzled over why they appear either not to have activated or, if they did activate, why they were not picked up by the satellite.

Malaysia Airlines, just released the info a day ago.

update...

Robotic submarine makes first successful scan of seabed 4.5km deep in search for MH370

Bluefin-21 drone completes 16 hour mission 2,000km off Australian coast
Data is now being analysed for any traces of the missing jet liner
Depth of search area is at the limit of Bluefin-21's operational capabilities
Two previous missions had to be aborted due to technical problems
It is now over 40 days since the flight with 239 people on board disappeared
Initial analysis of data showed it had not detected anything significant

Time runs out to find MH370: Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott concedes the search will soon have to stop

This morning's update.

Cheers.


Thanks Wiggo,

CNN, said today the cost was about 234 million dollars.?

Think they should search another part of the Indian Ocean.

NASA Finds...

It's like finding a needle in a universe-wide haystack. Researchers have located a planet the size of Earth that could be habitable.

Designated Kepler-186f, the planet is 490 light-years away. But in the search for worlds similar to ours, nothing has come closer.

Ooh... this is a VERY interesting thread! Only just came across it! Thanks Lynn!

Have only just started looking through the previous posts and they are all really very good and extremely thought provoking! I may end up going over old ground whilst I catch up... I'll try not to, but if I do I hope people won't mind.

Twin planet potentially? (I'm a twin! It's a lot of fun!) Sorry - back to the topic...

The report says:
After spotting it, the institute wasted no time searching for emissions that could indicate the presence of ETs. So far, no emissions have been found.


Am I correct in assuming that the emissions would be things like methane, and/or pollutants similar to those we produce? And if so, which would be the biggest indicator that any suspected life was in fact intelligent (assuming SETI didn't get the opportunity to analyse data from the planetary region concerned)?



490 light-years away. I would not speculate what type of atmosphere, such a planet would have. If there is alien signal, SETI has not found one.
