Asteroid 2013 TX68 May Make a Close Pass to Earth in March
Astronomers may be in for a treat early next month, as asteroid 2013 TX68 may make a close pass to Earth sometime between March 3–8, 2016, making it possible that it will be visible through telescopes. Despite how close it is expected to come to us, NASA doesn't expect it to hit Earth -- this time.

Early Earth may have been Hit Head On by Mars-Sized Planet
The formation of the Earth-Moon system has long been theorized to have been heavily influenced by the impact of a Mars-sized celestial body, commonly called "Theia" by scientists. The Moon's formation is theorized to have occurred when this object struck the primordial Earth, spinning off a portion of it's mass, that formed into the Moon as we know it today. However, a common question has dogged the issue since it's conception: did Theia just strike a glancing blow to the primordial Earth, or did it strike it head-on?

Information from Beyond the Veil
This week, Whitley describes another contact with Anne, and goes on to discuss the soul and how we can live in such a way the there is much less of a veil between the worlds. It was Anne's belief that our visitors are either part of what we call the dead, or live in such a way that the veil between the living and the dead that is central to our experience of being simply does not exist.

Whitley discusses how it might be possible to live in this new way, and what it might mean to do so.

Free-Energy Tech Company Steorn Offices were Bugged
Dublin-based technology development company Steorn has revealed that their offices had been bugged by an unknown party. Steorn, itself having stirred up controversy with the announcement of their "Orbo" technology, a source of "free, clean and constant energy": while it is being dismissed as violating the laws of the conservation of energy, it has apparently been independently validated by other sources.

The discovery of the surveillance devices -- a series of 5 pinhole cameras, embedded in the office's wall conduits -- was made when an employee was installing a power cable for a new piece of equipment. The affected room was used for brainstorming sessions, and contained a whiteboard used to illustrate their ideas.

Famed Astronaut Edgar Mitchell Dies
Astronaut Edgar Mitchell, who was part of the Apollo 14 crew that flew to the moon in 1971, has died at the age of 85. He was a naval officer and aviator, test pilot, aeronautical engineer, and NASA astronaut. As the Lunar Module Pilot of Apollo 14, he spent nine hours working on the lunar surface in the Fra Mauro Highlands region, making him the sixth person to walk on the Moon. Mitchell won the Presidential Medal of Freedom and the Navy and NASA distinguished service medals. He was a member of the Astronaut Hall of Fame and the International Space Hall of Fame.

Ocean Warming has Doubled over the last Thirty Years
hidden was solved when it was found that it was being trapped deep in world's oceans. While this had granted us a minor reprieve in the otherwise measurable increase in the atmosphere's temperature, a new study has shown to what extent the ocean's heat-absorbing ability has been helping us.

Researchers Propose Harnessing the Energy of Random Vibrations
Of the many ways energy is conveyed on our planet, one that seemingly goes unnoticed is what appears to be otherwise random vibrations, such as oscillations set up in a structure by wind passing over it, seismic energy traveling through the ground, or regular traffic sending vibrations through a bridge. Typically these energies pass through the structure in question, sometimes causing problems, and sometimes going completely unnoticed -- but can these energies be put to use? A proposal to harness these seemingly random vibrations has been made by a research team from Ohio State University, using simple structures that resemble trees. “Buildings sway ever so slightly in the wind, bridges oscillate when we drive on them and car suspensions absorb bumps in the road,” explains Ohio State assistant professor Ryan Harne, director of the Laboratory of Sound and Vibration Research. “In fact, there’s a massive amount of kinetic energy associated with those motions that is otherwise lost. We want to recover and recycle some of that energy.” In the past, it was assumed that the vibrations that could be absorbed by such a collection device were too random to be a reliable source of energy. Harne's team, however, found that an artificial tree-like structure could maintain these vibrations at a constant frequency, despite it's seemingly random source, via a phenomenon he calls "internal resonance": high-frequency vibrations experienced by the structure can be converted to lower-frequency waves, and converted to electrical energy. The team built a simple "tree", consisting of two steel beams, a trunk and one branch, each connected by an electro-mechanical material to convert motion into electricity. They found that by subjecting it to high-frequency vibrations, the apparatus provided 0.8 volts, despite not appearing to have any motion at all. After adjusting the vibrations to appear as if they were coming more from one direction than another, the tree more than doubled it's output, up to 2 volts. While this doesn't sound like a great deal of electrical energy, the experiment is a proof-of-concept model, and could conceivably generate much more practical amounts of energy if used in larger numbers.

The Bridge Between the Worlds
Wednesday February 3, 2016
We often think of experiencers as a bridge between our reality and another. But what if we're really a bridge--or perhaps a super highway--for our world and several others? This week's episode focuses on the experiencer who compartmentalizes various paranormal phenomena in his life because they don't seem to intersect. Is he not the intersection?

Stephen Hawking warns that We Must Leave Earth
Renowned theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking has stated a warning to humankind: , in light of all of the potential events that could spell the extinction of the human species, we must find a way to migrate into space. Citing numerous potential extinction events that could occur over the next few thousand years, both environmental and man-made, Hawking believes that it is too risky to have mankind's fate depend solely on the health of a single planet.
