UFO Digest Newsletter February 4, 2005

This week we are highlighting a video from Phoenix, Arizona. This footage was taken by Rob Kritkausky and is of a very unusal sighting. This video was shot June 14, 2004 and not March 13, 1997! We also have a story about sailing to Mars, another about the Russians fightings alien UFOs and finally a story about how nuclear power could improve our lives. Enjoy.

You could all do me a little favor and forward a copy of this letter to your friends. I am trying to build the list and will give away one Free levitron each month for the next two months.

Video of the Week

Rob Kritkausky is an avid sky watcher and this was quite an unusual sighting. His initial theory was that perhaps the lights were military flares, but the nearest military was situated at Goldwater, 85 miles away. Also, the multiple colors of the lights were not consistant with flares. Click here to watch the movie.

Super-sail could reach Mars in a month

A LICK of paint could help a spacecraft powered by a solar sail get from Earth to Mars in just one month, seven times faster than the craft that took the rovers Spirit and Opportunity to the Red Planet. Gregory Benford of the University of California, Irvine, and his brother James, who runs aerospace research firm Microwave Sciences in Lafayette, California, envisage beaming microwave energy up from Earth to boil off volatile molecules from a specially formulated paint applied to the sail. The recoil of the molecules as they streamed off the sail would give it a significant kick that would help the craft on its way. "It's a different way of thinking about propulsion," Gregory Benford says. "We leave the engine on the ground." Read more.

Soviet Army fought UFOs

Soviet military encountered many UFOs, maybe for this reason in the end of the 60s a secret laboratory of researching "flying objects" was created in the USSR. UFO researchers often blame the military of hiding the cases of alien rockets and disseminating false information of UFO. Army officers are not interested in the disputes about alien civilizations, they are interested in knowing what impact UFO can impose to military equipment and personnel. 1947. Antiaircraft guns of Transcaucasian Military District fired on the flying cigar-shaped object which came from the side of the Turkish border. The object"s flying altitude was below 4,000 meters, and the guns were capable of reaching a target at the altitudes up to 12,000 meters, but that time the fire made no harm to the "cigar". Then the cigar increased its speed and flew away over the mountains. Read more.

Nuclear Now

On a cool spring morning a quarter century ago, a place in Pennsylvania called Three Mile Island exploded into the headlines and stopped the US nuclear power industry in its tracks. What had been billed as the clean, cheap, limitless energy source for a shining future was suddenly too hot to handle. In the years since, we've searched for alternatives, pouring billions of dollars into windmills, solar panels, and biofuels. We've designed fantastically efficient lightbulbs, air conditioners, and refrigerators. We've built enough gas-fired generators to bankrupt California. But mainly, each year we hack 400 million more tons of coal out of Earth's crust than we did a quarter century before, light it on fire, and shoot the proceeds into the atmosphere.Click here to read more!
