The Sound of Space Music, Black Hole Pics, and Chestnut Ridge - Alien Invasion #259

Music for Space, Scientists attempt to photograph a black hole, and a cigar shaped UFO in Rhode Island.


The Question

If there are indeed planets with life, do you think those beings worry about UFOs or conspiracy theories regarding the government covering up signs of extraterrestrial life? (I guess what I am asking is… are aliens as paranoid as humans?)



The UFO community still believes — and science is starting to listen

Music has long been known to affect people's mood. A certain tune can lift you up or bring you to tears, make you focus, relax or even run faster. Now a study is investigating how the power of music may improve human performance in one of the most stressful and alien environments we know – space.

Music can help release a cocktail of hormones that have a positive effect on us: oxytocin, endorphin, serotonin and dopamine. Besides the pleasure we get from it, music can be used to prolong efficiency and reduce anxiety.

Stress factors in space can lead to disrupted sleep, impaired time perception and spatial orientation.

"Space appeared to me as the perfect testing ground to use anti-stress music," says violin teacher Luis Luque Álvarez, whose 'Music for space' project puts the psycho-physiological research of music at the service of space exploration.

The Event Horizon Telescope is Trying to Take the First-Ever Photo of a Black Hole

Astronomers orchestrated radio dish telescopes across the world into an Earth-size virtual camera for a bold new experiment attempting to deliver the first-ever image of a black hole. The telescope collaboration is set to make a big announcement of results this week, and members also described their research approach at a talk in March.

The astronomers' idea is to photograph the circular opaque silhouette of a black hole cast on a bright background. The shadow's edge is the event horizon, a black hole's point of no return. A picture is worth a thousand words, and a photograph of a black hole would be an important tool for understanding astrophysics, cosmology and the role of black holes in the universe.

I saw what seemed to be a cigar shaped object glowing brightly zoom across my home then fly across the sky again.

Just moved into our new home. I have noticed a ton of low flying military helicopters flying over our home at all hours of the day into the night. At least 3-4 times a week. I am fully aware there is a Military base in Coventry, RI, so I accepted the fact that they are doing drills of some sort.
