We take it for granted that the search for extraterrestrial intelligence (SETI) is a safe endeavor. Seriously, what could possibly go wrong with passively searching for interstellar radio signals? Unfortunately, the answer is quite a lot –- especially if the incoming signal contains something malicious, like a computer virus or Trojan horse.
And according to the experts, this isn't just idle speculation – the threat is very real. So, just how concerned to we need to be? Read more

Remember that "UFO" at the bottom of the Baltic Sea? The mystery intensifies as divers' electrical devices cut-off when they get near it.
The divers exploring a 'UFO-shaped' object at the bottom of the Baltic Sea say their equipment stops working when they approach within 200m.
Professional diver Stefan Hogerborn, part of the Ocean X team which is exploring the anomaly, said some of the team's cameras and the team's satellite phone would refuse to work when directly above the object, and would only work once they had sailed away.
He is quoted as saying: 'Anything electric out there – and the satellite phone as well – stopped working when we were above the object. Read more

If watching TV shows like Ghost Hunters and Ghost Adventures has made you want to try ghost hunting yourself, James Paradie has some tips for getting started.
Ghost hunting is generally not something hard to get into, and can be relatively cheap. Beginners basically need a few items to get under way and you can find them anywhere, including your home. The most important item would be a standard digital camera. Now, you don’t need to go all out and buy an expensive camera like a Canon PowerShot, most pictures that have evidence are from cameras that you can buy at any department store for a relatively cheap price.

A UFO-shaped object has been found at the bottom of the Baltic Sea, covered in soot, with little fireplaces, and lying at the end of a 1,000 foot runway.
Sceptics expected that a deep-water dive would debunk the slew of extra-terrestrial theories surrounding an unidentified object sitting at the bottom of the Baltic Sea.
But the Swedish expedition team that took the plunge surfaced with more questions than answers - and certainly no solution to its origins.
The divers found that the object, which some have likened to the Millennium Falcon because of its unusual round outline, was raised about 10 to 13ft above the seabed and curved in at the sides, giving it a mushroom shape. Read more

Astronomers Paul Davies and Robert Wagner reported seeing five UFOs on the moon in mid-April 2012.
Paul Davies and Robert Wagner report seeing five UFOs on moon in mid April 2012 according to testimony supplied from M24digital.com. These astronomers are affiliated with Arizona State University. M24digital.com released this discovery on 12 May 2012.
Astronomers Paul Davies and Robert Wagner had proposed a search for alien evidence on the surface of the moon in 2011. These astronomers had believed that a detailed study of thousands of photographs taken by NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter might reveal such evidence.
“If it costs little to scan data for signs of intelligent manipulation, little is lost in doing so, even though the probability of detecting alien technology at work may be exceedingly low,” they said. Read more
