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.

Listener Feedback

Hi, this is Jacob. I know you guys are the alien guys. I believe. I just wanted to say I do not have the fighting, but I would like to say to mention the a show on History Channel. It's called Ancient Aliens. It has a lot of your guys's stuff to it. Thanks. Bye.

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...

CPAP Alien and Alien DNA - Alien Invasion #255

Have you ever wanted to know what it was like to have a xenomorph Facehugger wrapped around your head? Do you have sleep apnea? Find out how you can experience being smothered while still being able to breathe. New letter added to the alphabet? Well, the genetic code alphabet, at least. Could this be the key to understanding alien life? A UFO sighting in New Lambton Heights. Finally, Anessa and Brad review the Natalie Portman led sci-fi film, Annihilation.

 

The Question

Do you think aliens pass gas? and if so, is it the same way humans do?

News

Sci-Fi Author Turns Sleep Apnea Mask Into Alien Facehugger And It Works

Sci-fi author Jared Gray has turned his sleep apnea mask into a facehugger from Alien. When penning the script for Alien – which was originally titled Star Beast - co-writers Dan O’Bannon and Ronald Shusett struggled to come with an interesting way for the titular monster to get onboard the spaceship. The solution came to Shusett suddenly that a crew member should be implanted by an alien creature, and when they’re brought back to the ship, that seed would explode out of them.

Eight-letter genetic code hints at how alien life might evolve

Researchers have created an ‘alien’ genetic code made out of eight bases instead of the usual four. The expanded genetic alphabet shows how life could arise if organisms never evolved proteins but instead relied on RNA as their biomolecular workhorse.

Life on Earth is built around proteins: they catalyse biochemical reactions and provide cellular structural elements. DNA, on the other hand, acts as biological information storage unit, while RNA provides a link between the two.

But an expanded genetic code created by Steven Benner from Firebird Biomolecular Sciences, US, and his team of xenobiologists shows that this template for life might not be the only feasible one. Their eight-letter DNA has additional functionality and translates into RNA that behaves more like a protein, making life without them a possibility.

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 memory came back vividly recently when he was throwing out old newspapers kept for painting. One fell on the floor.

It contained a story, published in this column in November 2017, about Geoff and Maree Masters. Dean hadn't come across the story until then.
