Yuri Gagarin: Starman

Yuri Alekseyevich Gagarin, Hero of the Soviet Union, was a Soviet cosmonaut. On 12 April 1961, he became the first human in outer space and the first to orbit the Earth. He received medals from around the world for his pioneering tour in space. Vostok 1 marked Yuri Gagarins only spaceflight, but he served as backup to the Soyuz 1 mission, which ended in a fatal crash.

Today (12 April, 2011) marks...

UFOs: The Secret Evidence

A handful of foo fighter sightings could be dismissed as pilot error, but there were hundreds, if not thousands. Could they really just be the hallucinations of tired or terrified men? “Call me Einstein, Flash Gordon or just plain crazy, but I know what I saw!” declared civilian pilot Kenneth Arnold, referring to the nine strange aircraft he’d seen flying rapidly in formation over Mount Rainier, Washington on the afternoon of 24 June 1947. It was, however, not the shape of the craft themselves but the way they had moved through the sky that would fix itself in the popular imagination....

Titan: A Place Like Home

In the most ambitious and expensive interplanetary space mission of all time, the Cassini-Huygens spacecraft made a seven-year trek across the Solar System to attempt first contact with the Earth-like moon of Titan by landing a probe on its unseen surface. The first close up images of Saturn and its many moons were taken in the early 1980s by the Voyager One Deep Space Probe. One moon stood out from all the rest, the mysterious moon of Titan. Unlike any moon that had ever been seen, it had a thick almost Earth-like atmosphere. It was also shrouded in a thick orange haze which prevented...

Through The Wormhole: Is Time Travel Possible?

Einstein’s Theory of Relativity says that time travel is perfectly possible — if you’re going forward. Finding a way to travel backwards requires breaking the speed of light, which so far seems impossible. But now, strange-but-true phenomena such as quantum nonlocality, where particles instantly teleport across vast distances, may give us a way to make the dream of traveling back and forth through time a reality. Step into a time machine and rewrite history, bring loved ones back to life, control our destinies. But if we succeed, what are the consequences of such freedom? Will we get...
