NASA, The Orville, and Michigan - Alien Invasion #256

NASA passes a major milestone with the help of SpaceX, The Orville gets its own comic book that delves deeper into the the Universe Seth MacFarlane has created, and after 25 years a series of Michigan UFO sightings remain a mystery.

The Question

Do you think aliens have pets the same way humans do?

SpaceX Crew Dragon Splashdown Marks Success of First NASA Commercial Crew Flight Test

NASA passed a major milestone Friday, March 8  in its goal to restore America’s human spaceflight capability when SpaceX’s Crew Dragon returned to Earth after a five-day mission docked to the International Space Station.

About 6 hours after departing the space station, Crew Dragon splashed down at 8:45 a.m. EST approximately 230 miles off the coast of Cape Canaveral, Florida. SpaceX retrieved the spacecraft from the Atlantic Ocean and is transporting it back to port on the company’s recovery ship.

By Avis, The Orville Is Getting Its Own Comic Book

With The Orville’s very fun second season currently airing on Fox, Seth MacFarlane’s sci-fi series now has another treat waiting for fans that’ll take the cast to yet another new frontier: the pages of a comic book.

According to a Dark Horse press release, The Orville Season 1.5: New Beginnings—from show exec producer and writer David A. Goodman, artist David Cabeza, and colorist Michael Atiyeh—will span two double issues that will read like episodes of the show that take place between the first and second seasons. Here’s the official descriptions:

The first of these “episodes” starts with The Orville #1: New Beginnings Part 1(of two). On their way to a fleet conference, Ed and Gordon investigate a distress signal from a century-old buoy belonging to a Union ship. Back on the Orville, Kelly tries to mediate when Bortus insists on enrolling Topa into school despite him being only a few months old.

Sighting

Dean “Vern” Garner has kept a secret for 20 years. He thinks about it often, but hardly speaks about it because he has no proof.

The eerie lights filled the sky along nearly 200 miles of Lake Michigan shoreline.

On March 8, 1994, calls flooded 911 to report strange sightings in the night sky. The reports came in from all walks of life — from police and a meteorologist to residents of Michigan's many beach resorts. Hundreds of people witnessed what many insisted were UFOs — unidentified flying objects.

Cindy Pravda, 63, of Grand Haven remembers that night in vivid detail — four lights in the sky that looked like "full moons" over the line of trees behind her horse pasture.

From Paolo via YouTube: yay, Anessa is back! there's a new UFO movie with Gillian Anderson, have you checked it out? it's another of them where they beam down to us the prime numbers but I guess there isn't much political issues to discuss at the moment with the govt shutdown happening...
