My Sky

We’re looking for images you’ve taken of your sky—whether those images are of galaxies captured through a telescope or perhaps pictures of an incredible night sky, an eclipse, a star party, or a rocket launch. We can’t guarantee that we’ll publish every image and story—but we will look at each and every one and will showcase as many as possible here on our website and a few might make it to our magazine, The Planetary Report. We look forward to seeing your Sky. Share Your Sky »

Are There Other Intelligent Beings in Our Universe?

by William Moore

December 29, 2014 | 0 comments

Are there other intelligent beings in our universe? It is my contention that, yes, there are, there were and there will be more in the future.

That life may long be extinct by now due to their sun dying, catastrophic self-extermination during their ... more »

Landing on a comet: a "once-in-a-lifetime" experience!
