Como bien sabemos el agua cubre la mayor parte de nuestro querido planeta Tierra, y en el fondo de los mares y océanos aún quedan muchísimos misterios por descubrir. Esta extraña burbuja o bola púrpura ha sido descubierta por un grupo de científicos, y no tienen ni idea de qué es.
Recently, Sigourney Weaver said that Neill Blomkamp’s still-in-the-ether Alien movie be a new sequel to Aliens, meaning, it would render the series’ existing third and fourth films redundant. Alien 3 may be the most maligned film in the franchise, but it would be a shame to erase Ripley’s adventure on Fury 161, and…
The cast of Aliens assembled at Comic-Con to celebrate the iconic science fiction film’s 30th anniversary, and all agreed that James Cameron’s script is a key part of what makes the film a classic. But woven into that strong storytelling are also some of cinema’s most memorable one-liners, as stars Bill Paxton and…
James Cameron put it very delicately when he admitted he didn’t like Star Wars: The Force Awakens. But he has no such restraint when discussing the sequel to his Aliens, the polarizing Alien 3. It begins with the cruel discovery that Aliens’ hard-fought survivors—other than Sigourney Weaver’s Ripley—have all perished.
Two months ago, researchers discovered that a nearby star system held at least three potentially habitable planets. Now, it turns out that at least two of those planets have even more potential for habitability than we initially thought.
Deckard’s sweet gun in Blade Runner was actually built from parts of real guns. Where a lot of prop weapons from films are just resin poured into a mold and then painted, Deckard’s gun looks and feels like a weapon; there’s a genuine heft to it, something inside clicks when you pull the trigger, and there’s even a…
News of filmmaker Neill Blomkamp’s hypothetical Alien movie has been swirling for the better part of two years. In that time, we’ve heard so many rumors and quotes about it that it’s hard to keep them straight. But a new one is a clear as crystal.
Since the 1960s, the Drake Equation has been used to predict how many communicative extraterrestrial civilizations exist in the Milky Way galaxy. Along these same lines, a new formula seeks to estimate the frequency at which life emerges on a planet—a calculation that might allow us to figure out the likelihood of…
Good ol’ ‘Murica may be ahead of China in development, GDP, and political clout, but China just finished building the world’s largest radio telescope and is now better-equipped at searching for aliens.
Disaster movies are one and the same—we’re all just watching them to see the world come under attack and famous landmarks get destroyed. “Oh my god, did they just do that to the Golden Gate Bridge?” “Not the Sydney Opera House!” But there’s one disaster movie that’s better than them all: Independence Day.
Good news alien hunters! A Kickstarter to fund a year-long investigation into KIC 8462852—the star voted most likely to harbor an advanced alien civilization—just got funded. Alien megastructure or not, we may finally get to the bottom of this bewildering, flickering star.
A team of researchers just confirmed the presence of oxygen in a galaxy 13.1 billion light years away—the furthest oxygen has ever been detected. Their findings suggest that this may have been the first oxygen to form in the early universe.
The disturbing Fermi Paradox suggests we should have made contact with an extraterrestrial civilization by now, yet we haven’t. By applying a 500-year-old philosophical principle, a Cornell University researcher has shown that the Great Silence is not unexpected—we just need to give it more time.
Aunque todavía falta más de un año para el estreno de Alien: Covenant, las primeras imágenes y rumores de la película ya circulan por Internet. La nueva información no-oficial nos habla sobre la protagonista del film, y sería una elección tan alocada que solo podemos desear que sea cierto.
Tutankhamun, the boy king of ancient Egypt who died at 18 and later exploded inside his own sarcophagus, apparently owned—and was buried with—a literal space dagger made from meteoric iron.
This is what NASA’s super pressure balloon looks like on the ground. And this—pictured below—is what it looks like floating in the air at night. Perhaps you’ve already spotted the problem.
In a few years, powerful new telescopes will usher in a search for habitable worlds outside our solar system. And TRAPPIST-1—a dim, tepid star just a smidge larger than Jupiter—is one of the first places we’ll look. It’s only forty light years away, and it’s home to several promising, Earth-sized exoplanets.
Un nuevo estudio quiere cambiar la forma en la que entendemos la posibilidad de la existencia de vida extraterrestre, instando a que no solo aceptemos que no estamos solos en el universo, sino que muchas otras civilizaciones llegaron a existir, solo que ya estarían extintas.
Countless people reported seeing a strange green orb tear across the southern California sky last night. And as shown in a recent YouTube upload—complete with a perfect soundtrack—it looked spectacular.
