Discovering A Monument For The Future

Imagine that you are from a society living thousands of years in the future. You are on a spirit walk through the high desert, and you stumble upon a mysterious monument tucked inside a lone mountain. Upon closer inspection you find that the monument is in fact a clock – a clock that has been telling time for almost 10,000 years…


In the video below, Alexander Rose discusses the design and construction of the 10,000 Year Clock. What are the challenges and responsibilities incumbent upon the current generation when thinking for the long-term future?





Space Is A Teeming Cesspool Of Life…

The implications of this discovery are staggering. Not only does this imply that the seeds of life are floating all over the not-so-sterile universe, but it’s likely that space is a cesspool of biology… how wonderful!


DNA Meteorites: Life Falling From The Sky

Posted by Robert L. Gidley


DNA meteorites have been confirmed as real by a recent report in the August 9 edition of Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Components of DNA, including nucleobases, have been found in 12 meteorites analyzed using the latest scientific methods.


This was the first study that successfully showed that the nucleobases did not come from contamination. To rule out contamination, the study analyzed the areas where the meteorites came from to rule out possible earthly contamination.


Three of the nucleobases found were also very rare in terrestrial biology,


“Finding nucleobase compounds not typically found in Earth’s biochemistry strongly supports an extraterrestrial origin,” study co-author Jim Cleaves, a chemist at the Carnegie Institution of Washington, told…
