Or... perhaps our visitors are from the elusive planet X, they reckon there could be another planet in a wide orbit.

Freddy, your link seems to be broken.

There I fixed it with my admin super-powers.  :)

It wasn't the link that was broken, it was the message parser that automatically highlights URLs in messages. It failed to include the closing parenthesis so I'd consider that a bug. Wrapping the URL in URL tags works though.

If I was to add some thoughts to this thread it would be this.

I refuse to believe we are the only life in the universe.

The humans have only had real science for a relatively short amount of time - we don't have many of the answers. 

Chocolate is delicious  ;D

The chocolate is a good point. I recently made about kilogram of chocolate out of cocoa butter, hazel nuts, and cocoa powder to see if three ingredients would be enough. All gone after a few days... it must be aliens.

Yes, earth scientists haven't discovered the potential of chocolate yet, but chocolate can be used in a matter-antimatter reaction for warp drives. So yes, aliens are probably at work... :uglystupid2:

I'd love to give those aliens a run for their money:

Coming soon to a kickstarter near you. :D
Pledge $100 and get an embossed drink coaster.
Looks nice though.

Reporting on the Pentagon program that’s investigating unidentified flying objects is not about belief. It’s about a vigilant search for facts.

Quote
Numerous associates of the Pentagon program, with high security clearances and decades of involvement with official U.F.O. investigations, told us they were convinced such crashes have occurred, based on their access to classified information. But the retrieved materials themselves, and any data about them, are completely off-limits to anyone without clearances and a need to know.

What worries me is that many of these officials would prefer this unexplained and unidentified advanced technology to be of extra-terrestrial origin (i.e. aliens) than to be coming from China or Russia.

This came up on my Facebook page today.

You can see why before they were well known, that people might get the wrong idea - black triangular craft, nothing like aircraft that were known at the time.

It's a Typhoon .

Lex Fridman interviews David Fravor. This is a really long podcast but it is packed with an amazing amount of information including details about the artificial intelligence components of modern avionics systems, the differences between commercial and military systems, their training and operational regimen, and what it is really like being part of a close-knit team of some of the most capable, accomplished, and highly trained human beings who have ever lived. That they also happened to witness and report on the most credible and mind-boggling UFO encounter that has ever been made public is almost incidental.
