UFO Buster Radio News – 311: Are You In A Galactic Zoo and India’s ISRO Give It Up Already
India has finally made it official: the country’s long-silent Chandrayaan-2 moon lander Vikram did, in fact, crash into the lunar surface in September, apparently because of an issue with its braking rockets.
In newly released details about India’s attempted lunar landing on Sept. 6, the Indian government has revealed that the Vikram craft “hard landed” on the moon because of a problem with its braking thrusters. Until now, the India Space Research Organisation had disclosed only that it had lost contact with the probe.
One explanation for why it has taken so long for the Indian government to formally recognize the crash is that, according to the ISRO, they were still trying to figure out exactly what happened.
INDIA’S SPACE CHIEF: WE FOUND OUR LANDER MONTHS BEFORE NASA
Back in September, the Indian Space Research Organization announced that it had found its Vikram lander, which it had lost contact with days earlier as it prepared to land on the Moon — and said it was trying to reestablish contact with the lost lander.
Months later, NASA made a similar announcement: that it had spotted the wreckage of the lander, with the help of amateur space enthusiast Shanmuga “Shan” Subramanian, who analyzed images taken by NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter. Now, it seems as though ISRO’s leadership feels that NASA is getting too much credit for the discovery.
“After the landing date itself, our website had given that our own orbiter has located Vikram,” ISRO chief Kailasavadivoo Sivan told reporters on Wednesday, as quoted by India Today. “Our own orbiter had located Vikram lander. We had already declared that on our website, you can go back and see.”
ISRO Finally Reveals Reasons of Vikram’s Hard Landing
Jitendra Singh, Indian Minister of State, that Vikram’s fate was decided when its speed at landing declined, causing it to hit lunar ground ‘within 500 meters of the designated landing site.’
What ISRO still isn’t talking about is how the hard landing affected the crash, upon losing communication with flight control about 350 meters away from the lunar surface.
The team, however, have shared the snapshots taken by Chandrayaan 2 Orbiter, stating that it is functioning as planned, flying around the moon, thus keeping the mission active in reaching its scientific and technological objectives.
Are We In A ‘Galactic Zoo’ Protected By Aliens? Scientists Meet To Investigate The ‘Great Silence’
Are we alone? Probably not. After all, astronomers have already found 4,001 confirmed exoplanets in our Milky Way galaxy, and expect there to be over 50 billion exoplanets out there. For scientists gathering in Paris today, the question is different: why haven’t we made contact with alien civilizations?
Today, leading researchers from the fields of astrophysics, biology, sociology, psychology, and history are meeting at the Cité. “Every two years, METI International (METI stands for messaging extraterrestrial intelligence) organizes a one-day workshop in Paris as part of a series of workshops entitled What is Life? An Extraterrestrial Perspective,” said Florence Raulin Cerceau, co-chair of the workshop and a member of METI’s Board of Directors. The scientists are discussing some pretty insane-sounding questions:
•Are extraterrestrials staying silent out of concern for how contact would impact humanity?
•Do we live in a “galactic zoo?”
•Should we send intentional radio messages to nearby stars to signal humanity’s interest in joining the “galactic club?”
•Will extraterrestrial intelligence be similar to human intelligence?
•Did life get to earth from elsewhere in the galaxy (interstellar migration)?
“This puzzle of why we haven’t detected extraterrestrial life has been discussed often, but in this workshop’s unique focus, many of the talks tackled a controversial explanation first suggested in the 1970s called the ‘zoo hypothesis,’” said Raulin Cerceau. Ah yes, the idea that we’re being watched by aliens and … perhaps even being protected by them.
