    Rhythms From Martian Sands - What Did Our Viking Landers Find in 1976? Astonishingly, We Don't Know

    [​IMG]

    This is an actogram. Looks complicated perhaps but idea is simple. It's just a long timeline broken up into pieces stacked on top of each other. It's double plotted so the second half of each line overlaps the first half of the next line, and each line is two Martian sols long.

    You read it from left to right and top to bottom. Each row starts one sol later, and is two sols long so the right half of each line is the same sol as the left half of the next line, and the black lines show times when the labelled release values are above the two sol average.

    The white circles show the moments of maximum LR for each sol. The white diamond at day 7 show the moment of the second nutrient injection.
    If you draw a line between the white dots, it slants down towards the right to start with, delaying each day, with a period of 25.46 hours, but then at the second nutrient injection starts sloping to the left with a period a few minutes short of the Martian sol of 24.66 days.

    The new pattern is interpreted as due to the advancing sunset times on Mars, as he found that it follows them almost exactly.

    This change of slope is a common feature of circadian rhythms after nutrient injection - though with only six days, there is not enough data to be certain that the slope did change; it could just be a statistical anomaly. If it did, then apparently it's hard to think of a good explanation not involving biology.

    They plan to do more analysis of the data.

    I am sure that at the bottom of Mariana trench is strolling a giant octopus looking for some intelligent species to start conversation with

    Evidence of alien life? Mysterious radio signal picked up by astronomers

    Discovery: A supernova is NOT responsible for the strange radio signals which scientists have discovered in space
    A mysterious radio signal which could come from an ALIEN civilisation has been detected by astronomers.

    Scientists have for the first time observed millisecond long, bright flashes of radio waves which emit the same amount of energy as the sun does in an entire day emanating from unknown sources in the universe.

    The fast radio bursts may alternatively have come from a black hole, or a neutron star.



    The first such burst was discovered in 2007 by sifting through old data, but this is the first time star-gazers have observed the mysterious phenomenon happening live.



    Carnegie Observatories’ acting director John Mulchaey said: “These events are one of the biggest mysteries in the universe.

    “Until now, astronomers were not able to catch one of these events in the act.”

    Scientists have spent years looking for the waves using 12 telescopes in California, the Canary Islands, Australia, Chile, Hawaii, India and Germany.



    Their data indicates that the bursts originated from outside of our Milky Way galaxy up to 5.5 billion light-years away.

    PhD student Emily Petroff, from Swinburne University of Technology in Melbourne, Australia, said: “These bursts were generally discovered weeks or months or even more than a decade after they happened.

    “We’re the first to catch one in real time.”

    Slight problem. Cannot have radio Xmitters under water....much less powerful ones.

    our knowledge of our own seas and under water is not really much to talk of either, our science itself is limited at present

    The only explanation for this star is 'alien megastructure'. All natural explanations have failed. SETI is trying to pick up radio signals, but that would be useless. Advanced aliens will be using technology beyond our levels. Especially if they can build a casing around a star!

    Even though the astronomers have not confirmed that it could be a UFO and there is no official confirmation as to what it was.

    The incident reportedly happened at Padri market of Gorakhpur. A local resident and eye-witness of the incident Rinku, stated, he was clicking picture of a truck hit electric poll when he witnessed a huge size white colored, self-revolving cone.

    Panic was created amongst the locals in the market but Rinku managed to click the pictures.

    It may be mentioned here that the pictures are going vial since yesterday after the UFO was witnessed flying over Gorakhour.

    However the District Magistrate Ranjan Kumar, SSP Luv Kumar has rubbished the news of UFO being spotted. While the experts at the Gorakhpur university are examining the photos and the matter.
