Military Review

What is the cosmos silent

116



1 December 2009 of the year the UFO Department at the Department of Defense of the United Kingdom stopped its work. According to a popular statement by officials, the reason for the closure of the UFO desk was the absolute uselessness of the department in ensuring the security of the country. For 50 years of intense research, no reliable confirmation of the existence of "flying saucers" and "newcomers" was received.

Of course, the closure of the British military department for the study of UFOs is nothing more than a curiosity ... and the "department" itself was a tiny office in which only two people worked - an officer and a non-commissioned officer, whose duties included collecting and systematizing all the information coming from eyewitnesses UFO. Alas, these two researchers could not find anything worthwhile, and all the evidence obtained turned out to be trivial photo fakes or the result of some rare natural phenomena (halo, mirages, etc.).

In every joke there is some joke - behind all the seeming frivolity of the event that happened on the shores of Albion, there is a real Problem - an impassable blank wall that has got in the way of the development of modern science.

Lack of space wonders

The fact that the world is far from being simple, people have long guessed - Aurelius Augustine, who lived in the 4th century AD, reasonably noted that all the most important discoveries and achievements of human civilization occurred in the recent past - the memory of generations has preserved the names of most of the authors of ancient treatises and discoveries.

Eratosthenes was the first to calculate the diameter of the Earth - the cunning Greek calculated the characteristics of the planet using the simplest trigonometry (the difference between the angles of inclination of the sun's rays in Siena and Alexandria, with a certain distance between the two cities).

Ptolemy created his inimitable “Almageist” - a collection of astronomical knowledge, including a catalog of the positions of 1022 stars.

History Herodotus, the Pythagorean theorem, the Hippocratic Oath ...

There is nothing surprising here: according to modern concepts, the duration of the active phase of human Civilization hardly exceeds 6 000 years - since the appearance of the first cities, the writing system and the beginnings of ancient cultures.

Another circumstance is much more important: the being of the Civilization obeys the exponential law - the longer it exists, the more intensively its development takes place.
1861 year: “I saw the red day, there is no slave in Russia” ... and, just 100 years after the abolition of serfdom, the Royal Seven carried Yuri Gagarin into space.

None of the science fiction writers of the mid-20th century was able to predict the further direction of evolution. Remember, like Efremov in the “Adromeda Nebula”: “Erg Noor sat behind the levers of a calculating machine.”

Absurd?

Instead of flying to Mars, microelectronics and information management have become the main global trend. August 2006 of the Year: the Japanese company Hitachi announced the creation of a hard disk with a capacity of 1 terabytes - a large academic library in the palm of your hand! Writing similar textual information on paper would require 50 thousand tree trunks.

Civilization is evolving at explosive speed - the whole huge, incredibly complex world was known in just a few decades of the last century ... sounds too boastful, but the fact remains: modern science took a few years to derive the basic laws of the universe. Sensitive antennas of giant radio telescopes allowed to look into the depths of the Universe, and magnetic colliders allowed to split the matter into separate quarks and gluons. Mankind began to understand how this world functions - the result was the emergence of nuclear technologies and unique electronic devices. For the first time in history, we received a real opportunity to destroy our “cradle” - the nuclear flame is capable of shifting mountains and radically changing the conditions of life on Earth.

With regard to the success of genetic engineering and space flight - who is now surprised by such events? Is that the launch was unsuccessful, and the exploding booster has blossomed in the sky with colorful fireworks.
It is terrible to imagine what heights Civilization will achieve in another thousand years! And through 10 thousand? (of course, subject to the successful development of events - no world nuclear wars and epidemics of incurable fever)

What is the cosmos silent

16 November 1974 was sent from Arecibo to a radio message in the direction of the constellation Hercules, containing basic information about man, the solar system and our civilization. Decoding a message consisting of 1679 digits requires a lot of mathematical tricks and uncommon logic.

According to the modern cosmological model of the universe, the age of our world is 13,8 billion years. How many times does the duration of the active phase of human civilization fit into this figure? More than 2 million times!

Two million times a civilization like ours could have originated somewhere in the depths of space, reach heights of knowledge and disappear again in the millstones of ruthless time. Or vice versa - having arisen once, continue its inconceivable way through billions of years, having reached by now some completely unreal power on a galactic scale.

In 1988, terrestrial astronomers discovered the first exoplanet, a massive celestial body orbiting the star Gamma Cepheus A.

By May 2013, the number of exoplanets found in the nearest stars reached the number of 889 units - almost each of the nearest stars, which the researchers look at, has its own planetary system. The Milky Way Galaxy consists of 200 billions of stars. The number of galaxies in the visible part of the universe is estimated to be about the same figure.


Ypsilon Andromeda D - the fourth planet in the system of a sun-like star υ Andromedae
The presence of water vapor is detected in the spectrum.

A huge number of possible options for the birth of life, billions of years, the rapid pace of development of civilizations ...

Substituting these values ​​(corrected for various unfavorable factors) into the Dyson formula and other cosmological calculations, scientists obtained a unique result — all probability theories show that the number of highly developed civilizations in the Universe must now be calculated by a number with many zeros!

According to all calculations, the indescribable should happen in heaven: driven by an unknown force, the stars should collide and unwind the "sleeves" of spiral galaxies; everywhere in the sky should be constructed "Dyson Sphere" or other fancy objects of artificial origin.

Without any illusions about the kindness and peacefulness of technological civilizations of the terrestrial type, we must observe the brutal battles of starships and "flying saucers." Highly developed aliens should burn each other with thermonuclear fire and blast galactic nuclei, the “death star” should emit its sizzling rays, and many space bodies right before our eyes must undergo changes and terraforming in order to expand the living space of extraterrestrial civilizations.

The entire electromagnetic spectrum should be penetrated by signals - by rotating the frequency tuning verniers, radio amateurs would be able to catch the broadcast of the reality show HOUSE-200 from the constellation Eridanus (a million-year-long telecast - and why not?).



Speaking in scientific language, many inexplicable and mysterious phenomena of clearly artificial origin should occur in the starry sky, which would certainly attract the attention of earthly researchers. Those “cosmic miracles”, the appearance of which was predicted by Konstantin Tsiolkovsky!

BUT ANYTHING THIS IS NOT GOING ON

The infinite space is quiet and calm - only velvet blackness and cold twinkling of stars.



With the help of modern astronomical instruments, the human mind has penetrated into such depths of the Universe, where even the wildest imagination cannot penetrate: the cellular structure of the cosmos was discovered, relic radiation and black holes were discovered. The sensitivity of astronomical instruments is amazing: the energy received by all radio telescopes of the Earth for the entire period of existence of radio astronomy is not enough to heat a drop of water at 1 ° С. A modern radio telescope is capable of viewing even the most distant quasars, remote from the Earth by 13 billion light years.

In vain! No signs of “cosmic miracles” - all movements, vibrations and characteristics of the studied celestial objects are subject to the influence of gravity and other natural causes.

June 1967 of the year. Did it happen? Graduate student Jocelyn Bell once again verifies data from the University of Cambridge observatory - there can be no error, a source of periodic radio pulses was found in the sky. This is an extraterrestrial radio station!
The object was assigned the index LGM-1 (Little Green Men - "little green men"), but, alas, everything turned out to be much simpler - the scientists discovered the first pulsar: a furiously rotating neutron star with a shifted magnetic pole. To date, more than 1800 of similar objects have been discovered in the Universe, whose natural origin is beyond doubt.


Pulsar in the Crab Nebula.
The picture was taken by the Chandra space x-ray observatory.

To date, perhaps the only case of the “cosmic miracle” can only be considered a strange radio signal received at the Big Ear radio telescope in 1977 year *. The signal, designated as Wow (“Wow!”), Was just a minute burst of radio emission at the frequency 1420MHz - so as not to bore the reader with long excursions into physics, I would just note that this frequency is directly related to the fundamental laws of nature and is considered the most priority channel for search for extraterrestrial civilizations. The laws of physics are the same for all - the “aliens” will probably guess to use this particular frequency.

* another similar signal on the 1420MHz frequency, coming from another point of the sky, was registered by the Arecibo Observatory in 2003

As for the Wow signal itself, its nature remained unexplained. Failure of the receiving equipment, accidental reflection from a piece of space debris, and maybe indeed ... Unknown. More signal is not repeated.

The Tower of Babel

The phenomenon known as the Great Silence of the Universe is becoming more and more a crisis of modern natural science. The absence of “cosmic miracles” has only two reasonable explanations:

1. We are alone in the universe

2. Something terrible is happening before our eyes.

Also, there is a third version - “the contact took place, but the authorities are hiding,” but we will not dwell on this issue in detail, because here begins pure conspiracy and pseudoscience.

With the thought of our solitude in the vastness of the vast Cosmos, it is still possible to reconcile (scientists admit that this is an absolutely unbelievable situation - life can have innumerable forms, and a huge sample of habitats gives an amazing picture of the densely populated Universe).

The second answer causes goosebumps running over the back. The crisis of modern natural science is directly linked with the upcoming crisis of our civilization - we, like thousands of other highly developed cultures, face inevitable death. The myth of the Tower of Babel turned out to be a formidable prophecy: having reached a certain limit, civilization disappears (collapses / degrades / collapses).



Causes?
Games with genetic engineering. Meteor falling. The epidemic of incurable fever.
Perhaps old Einstein was right:

"I do not know how weapons the Third World War will be waged, but the Fourth - by stones and sticks "


Warm southern night, singing cicadas. A bright flash of a match for a moment splits the darkness, a stream of smoke flows upward. Damn ... but there is something to think about. Summer Triangle - Lyra, Altair, Deneb ... The Swan, spreading its wings, flies along the Milky Way ... Pegasus ... the letter "M" is written a bit higher in the zenith ... dim brilliance lit by the glow of a big city. Some stars are floating among the stars. Miracles? Hardly. Just a belated flight from Sheremetyevo.

Black mist, stars twinkle
And they hide something from people ...

      There is a third option, the Universal Mind exists, and all developed civilizations obey this mind, and we are part of some kind of experiment and are in a state of information blockade (for the purity of the experiment). We simply did not reach a sufficient level of development of consciousness in order to contact us ...

        I agree. Something like cosmic ecology.
        1. You can not communicate with those who have not solved their internal problems.
        2. You can not communicate with those who could not go to the Galaxy. Each original mind, with its own view of the Universe, has tremendous value for the galactic community. Premature contact will not allow the mind to go the original way.

      Everything is much simpler:

      Mankind has been at war since its inception, war is not sad - the guarantee of progress (the strongest survive, you need to eat a lot to be strong, but there isn’t enough food for everyone). Other civilizations, if they are, they also cut their own kind, BUT

      And they and we know the measure in the extermination of MYSELF. Interspecific warfare will not know the restrictions - chemical, nuclear, thermonuclear, bacteriological weapons will be used without reflection and a shadow of doubt.

      So why look for problems on your ass and shout loudly that we are so beautiful and live here. It is necessary to be silent in a tube and not to wait for "surprises" to fall on us from orbit, but to think over what to do in such a situation.

      Well, they painted it for a reason, with a hangover. This picture gradually loomed, and improved. Those who find relict radiation, decide that this is an echo of the big bang, move science forward, and those who think that God farted 13 billion years ago, on the contrary, drive us into obscurantism.

    Over the past 150 years, there have been 2 world wars, a global epidemic - "Spanish Flu", and incurable AIDS (most likely in 20 years it will be curable), and at the same time a huge breakthrough has been made in science.

    The existence of other forms of intelligent highly developed life is carefully hidden and mercilessly ridiculed in the media and official authorities. With all the skepticism with which most scientists and ordinary people treat UFOs, the armies and intelligence services of the leading countries of the world have rules of action when UFOs are detected. The United Nations has appointed a person responsible for the first contact with aliens. A woman - Director of the UN Office for Outer Space Affairs, the first astrophysicist of Malaysia Mazlan Othman will act as a negotiator between earthlings and "humanoids". There is a mass of evidence of submariners, cosmonauts of military pilots about inexplicable objects of various shapes. These evidences cannot be simply thrown into the trash. It should be reminded about the "SETKA" program in the USSR - a joint brainchild of the USSR Academy of Sciences and the USSR Ministry of Defense. There are similar departments in almost all countries of the world. It is not known what the special services are doing now. You can write on this topic indefinitely, I have designated only crumbs, gave "food" for skeptics. To ignore the topic of UFOs is stupid, it is even worth looking at the ancient rock paintings and artifacts - a lot of evidence about the "visits of the gods". The article, however, put a plus for the fascinating form and illustrations, although I do not agree with what is stated in it. We are not alone and this is a fact ...

      I recently came across a tytruba in a video in which the former Minister of Defense of Canada just says that other civilizations exist and have long been cooperating with the authorities of some earthly states. It is funny that he further concludes that humanity does not have much time to stop falling into the abyss. According to him, we have a deadline until the end of this decade. He also names those responsible for this fall very clearly. In short, this is a shadow government and a capitalist system;)

      So it may well turn out that they are actually silent. The capitalists are silent in order to continue to rob the population of the Earth.

            Why did they suddenly decide that the "others" really want to be seen? If you had the opportunity to travel invisible, would you really not use it? Especially where is the thread in Afghanistan and Somalia? Yes, yes, because we are for "them" somewhere at this level. It's a shame, but what to do. And in general, why is it necessary to go out into the open space for travel? Yes, we learned 100 years ago to get off the ground and fly against the wind. And even 500 years ago they thought that the Earth was flat. This was the official point of view of European science. And now we have decided that the box with silicon spiders-parts is the crown of the creation of NTP, and we ourselves can use only 10% of our brain, the most advanced 25%.

                    As for phones and computers, there is nowhere to develop much, because even if they are super thin, super long-playing, super fast, or even their screen will move apart several times, and then removed, then this will not change the essence. Now, if such a device is created that can be connected to the human brain, well, or implanted at the worst, and people will communicate with each other with the help, work on a stationary console, exchange data, view a video signal, etc., controlling it only "head", well, probably it will be a leap.


                    Regarding the pictures on mobile phones. Well, there is no limit to perfection, it can be seen that their "batteries" for "mask suits" do not last forever, or the "Chinese" ones were pushed by the head of the warehouse before the expedition. smile

                    About the brain. If you are right, then this is only worse. To use the brain to the fullest and SO evolve, which could be sadder for humanity?

                      I completely agree with the course of your judgment

                      The cognitive abilities of the human brain are as little studied as Cosmos.

        What does radio amateurs and telescopes have to do with it? Some objects are visible with the naked eye and anyone who has seen them at least once can be convinced of their presence. Also, UFOs are recorded by equipment, there is a mass of photo and video material on this topic, but it is presented as "yellow" and attention to such cases is not emphasized or is simply silent. By the way, if you mentioned "radio amateurs or owners of mini-telescopes", then you can google and find a lot of interesting things. We don't even really know our planet and the ocean depths, not to mention Space. And some say that we know the Space even better. Who wants to find the truth, he will find it or he will live in ignorance and "feed" on what the powerful of this world "feed" mankind ...

            And who said that it was not found? Again, these are dogmas that have been instilled in us since childhood. That we are "masters of nature", "people descended from a monkey", "The earth is flat" and other nonsense. But people believed in it !!! Don't you think this is funny? If you don't talk about a fact, it doesn't mean that it doesn't exist. I agree with fzr1000: "there (in Space) so many different things happen that if you pay attention to everything, the roof will go." It is necessary to look at things more broadly. Unusual objects are DARKNESS DARKNESS. I cannot name the inclination and the angle, they move along different trajectories, this is not a tram on rails or a trolleybus. It is difficult to break the established worldview, I agree, but it is impossible to deny the obvious.

                The fact of the matter is that I do not mean "objects of deep space", this is a separate topic. No one will naturally provide you with facts. You can watch the video of UFO chronicles of secret pursuits. "At least the first 5-10 minutes. The highest officers of the USSR and Russian Ministry of Defense, cosmonauts, pilots personally talk about their meetings with UFOs, the study of this problem at the state level and the strictest secrecy.

                  In fact, UFOs are a separate issue - strange objects in the atmosphere and near near-Earth space. Perhaps this is not related to interstellar travel at all.

                Listen, over the past five years, astronomers have found, in my opinion, about 5 candidates that are similar to Earth in that they have liquid water, and not just the atmosphere, solid surface and ice. And where there is water, life is possible, similar to ours. Those. and they are located from their "suns" at "comfortable" distances. Moreover, first they are looking for a star that resembles our Sun in characteristics, and then what revolves around it. In my opinion it is logical. So there are many stars similar to our Sun with planets, to put it mildly. There is only one problem - they are all very far away. But this does not mean that they are "empty". I will not give links, because this is quite open information and there are many options. Everything is online. On the same NASA website. And there may also be planets on which life is possible, but in such forms that for us do not fit into the usual framework. This is also not my personal point of view.

                I do not compare, but I give examples of how science fooled people with all sorts of fairy tales, and now it fooles people, because it was known for a long time that the Earth is not flat, hundreds of years ago ancient maps of the Earth, Hyperborea, Antarctica were found of amazing accuracy, which can get only from Space or at least from airspace. Moreover, Antarctica on these maps is not yet covered with ice. They were found hundreds of years ago. Science is silent about this and now. Traces of an ancient civilization, giants. The age of finds is up to 50 000 000 years. And academic science still insists that our ancestors - monkeys, climbed down from the trees and began to "grow wiser". fool This is nonsense. There is still None of the material evidence of the theory of evolution. I would rephrase a passage from the article:

                1. We are NOT alone in the universe

                2. Something terrible is happening before our eyes, but we simply are not given to see and understand it, clogging our head with rubbish.

                        I say that science has thousands of evidence, from genetic markers to fossils. And a person with two entities should at least follow up on what he writes.

                        it all comes down to theorems and formulas. This is your dead end.

                        Everything rests on the methodology of the scientific method of research. As I wrote above, evolution is now considered almost a scientific fact. Smart people don’t even argue with her, all the cardinals of the Catholic Church, including the Pope recognized that evolution is right, even all kinds of creationists even began to appear to object to something. And you write nonsense about some order of the Masonic lodge. All these conspiracy theories cannot be applied to science, since ANY scientist would once perpetuate his name by proving that evolution, Newtonian mechanics, Thermodynamics, etc., are not true. This was not yet succeeded by anyone, but now they have even stopped trying.

But I won’t be able to convince me anyway. Everyone should remain unconvinced. But you need to tighten up the story, but limp. I also wrote everything above. I leave you the last word.

    a person’s life is too short to intensify the development process, so when we achieve a life expectancy of at least 150 years (the body is designed for this), then scientists working on one problem for 50-70 years will achieve great success. But this double-edged sword, the planet’s overpopulation will happen very quickly, now there are already not enough natural resources, and even food, and there’s nothing to replace oil with, pollution of water and the atmosphere is even increasing, so a man-made disaster can come faster than we will meet aliens.

The last were semiconductors and the reaction of the atom. here they are tormented by vague doubts as they didn’t seem dumber. and the result is zero .. even the discovery of controlled thermonuclear fusion would solve 90% of humanity’s problems, such as nutrition and energy and much more. But there is no complete impasse, and funding and support for these works at zero, someone will say the oil and gas lobby. but if they had a cold thermonuclear fusion in their hands, these same forces would have earned tens, if not thousands of times more ... someone slows down progress and this is obvious.

      This is also what you are looking at from today's perspective. Yes, in the protein coat, the human mind will not fly far. But science, neurons, the connection between them and the electrochemical processes of thought can be clothed in another shell, for example, in the energy beam of photons. Then fly wherever you want and how much you want.

      In general, life and mind, according to the definition of the Universe, cannot exist in the singular. Only two constants of the universe are not mutable. These are the lack of Straight lines and Multiplicity.
      There is not only one galaxy in the Universe, there is not only one star, there is not only one planet, there is not only one birch on the Earth, only one cockroach. All in the multitude. Hence, there cannot be only one life in the universe, on Earth, and there cannot be only one human mind. Life as the formation of stars and galaxies is also natural. And the emergence of Reason is also natural.

      Generally without Reason, the Universe is meaningless. Through Reason, and human in particular, the Universe is aware of itself. Without Reason, the Universe would not know what exists. It is like the human body and brain. The human mind and the mind on other planets is the Universal Mind. And when the human mind comes into contact with the mind of another planet, this will be the formation of a neural connection between the cells of the Universal Mind.

      Something like that.

    For some reason, everyone thinks that since there are many other civilizations (by the way, how many is the number of systems? And why should the nearest ones be developed so that it is visible from the Earth?), Then they must all explode, catastrophically modify (so that the spiral arms of the Galaxy are already twisted!) and fly, fly, fly to our planet for a meeting with us ...
    First, the actual "Earth-2" has not yet been found, and the exoplanets most similar to our home are the so-called. "neptunes", water worlds, or super-earths - planets with an average mass of 2-5 Earth masses (by definition, there can be up to 10 Earth masses), so we still imagine the conditions for the emergence and development of life on them very, softly vaguely speaking. By the way, we have not yet fully learned the history of the planet itself. This is me for the question of the number and development of inhabited worlds. The nearest civilization may be a couple of hundred, or even thousands of light years away from us - it is not a fact that we will notice something from such a distance, especially if it is some kind of long-term processes. Terraforming, say. We have been observing deep space for only half a century.
    Secondly: who said that we are generally able to notice the manifestations of the activity of "others"? Can you imagine what the exhaust of some "Centauri cruiser" looks like and how intense it is? Do the engines have to "shine" so that it can be seen beyond a hundred parsecs? We don't even know what exactly we are looking for, by and large. Just some oddities, but they may not necessarily be visible due to, say, the same low intensity. If I'm not mistaken, at the beginning of the 20th century there were such proposals for the search for intelligent life on Mars: they say, if there is a highly developed civilization on the planet, then there should be cities, and over large transport hubs - smoke from steam locomotives and industry in general, here are their then we need to look ... Will it not turn out that we are still looking for "smoke from steam locomotives" in the Galaxy?
    Well, and thirdly. "Why are they silent." There can be a million reasons, of course, but one of the most probable, in my opinion, is quite commonplace: why do they need us, a rusty probe in their nozzles? Here is, say, Oceania. there are many states, and many more islets, each of which is a real pearl in the middle of the ocean. But how many in Europe, say, will remember where Palau is and who they are? And the more hopeless will be the question of who has been there. And how often do planes fly over some godforsaken atoll in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, or cruise ships pass? Yes, maybe, not even once since its discovery. Yes, satellites fly, but are the aborigines able to notice them, despite the fact that their standard of living has greatly increased since the last century and now they have a TV and a couple of pre-war pickup trucks, and even Coca-Cola from a neighboring island? Who knows, maybe our Earth is just a small island in a giant galactic archipelago .. And is it really so attractive, if we assume that the neighbors are not from "Earth-2" and they have their own ideas about ideal worlds ...

    Information flowed to the "skeet" department created at the General Staff, where these reports were analyzed and systematized. Especially when Andropov came, these things were seriously taken into account, he himself still caught it.
    If earlier information
    about UFOs, according to instructions, flocked from garrisons to scientific

    - In novels From Earth to the Moon, a direct road in 97 hours and 20 minutes and Around the Moon, Jules Verne anticipated some aspects of future space exploration: Using aluminum as the main metal for building a projectile car. Despite the high cost of aluminum in the XNUMXth century, it predicted its future widespread use for the needs of the aerospace industry.
    The Stones Hill area in Florida was chosen as the start of the lunar expedition. This place is close to the location of the modern spaceport at Cape Canaveral.
    The first flight to the moon and Jules Verne, and in reality occurred in April, the crew consisted of three astronauts, and both spacecraft were splashed in the same area of ​​the Atlantic.

    - Video communications and television ("Paris in the XX century").
    - Construction of the Trans-Siberian Railway and Transmongol (“Clodius Bombarnac. Notebook of the reporter about the opening of the large Trans-Asian Railway (From Russia to Beijing)”).
    - Aircraft with a variable thrust vector ("The Extraordinary Adventures of the Barsak Expedition").
    Fundamental patency of the Northern Sea Route in one navigation (“Foundling with the Fallen Cynthia”).

    Sometimes Verne is mistakenly credited with predicting a submarine. In fact, in the time of Verne, submarines already existed. However, the described characteristics of the Nautilus surpass even the XNUMXst century submarines.

    Unfulfilled predictions:
    - The Earth at the North Pole (The Adventures of Captain Hatteras) and the Ocean at the South ("Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea"): it turned out the other way around.
    - Underground Channel under the Suez Canal (“Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea”).
    - Manned flight to the moon in a cannon shell. It is worth noting that it was precisely this “mistake” that prompted K.E. Tsiolkovsky to study the theory of space flights.
    - The core of the Earth is cold.
    - In the series “Robur the Conqueror”, “Lord of the World” 3 types of aircraft are heavier than air: helicopter, ornithopter and paraglider. But the most common paraglider in our time, did not get its story. Instead, they were “Albatross” and “Terrible.” (CPSU).

      I agree. But it was partially done by Mr. Jules Verne.

      the author simply did not read Jules, Verna. NEVER him, he writes everything.

      I will add to the refutation:
      Quote: Oleg Kaptsov
      "None of the science fiction writers of the mid-XNUMXth century could predict the future direction of evolution."

      -Arthur Clark "2036. China surpasses the United States in terms of gross national product and is becoming the largest economy in the world." ... ALMOST
      - “Terrafugia Transition Roadable Aircraft” for about $ 280
      - The War of the Worlds by Herbert Wells: Lasers and the Long Range Acoustic Device (LRAD)
      at the 2012 olympic games
      -Karel Chapek “Rossum universal robots”: “Roomba”, ASIMO
      Aldous Huxley Brave New World: Test-tube children and antidepressants
      -Robert Heinlein “A Stranger in a Foreign Country”: water mattresses, I don’t want bastards
      - On “Enterprise” used PADD: iPad, though without galactic Wi-Fi access.
      ======== Well, of course this is not "evolution", that time 70, which has passed since 1/2 20x, what is the term for evolution?

    Actually, the notorious "WOW" signal was unraveled by Russian experts 2-3 years ago. Why do they write here that this is not solved, a mystery.
    Here is a reference for you:
    http://www.proza.ru/2011/04/11/1543
    The essence of the clue is as follows. That the alien civilization that sent us this signal considers us to be creatures of a near mind with an IQ coefficient of approximately 65%, which equals dementia and oligophrenia by earthly standards.

    And why did everyone decide that man is a rational being?
    I think the ants do not even suspect the existence of man, etc.
    But the life of ants has signs of intelligent life.
    In terms of logic, man is one of the most NOT REASONABLE creatures on earth.
    Ready to argue about that.

    in the next ravings about UFOs either from REN TV or from NTV it was said that aliens sent us an answer to this message. The authorities traditionally hide this from us.

    The article is slightly delusional in my opinion. Even to the nearest galaxy Andromeda 2.5 ml. light years. Not talking about galaxies recently discovered at a distance of 9.5 billion. light years. Taking into account the "space and time" that the author can see through a telescope. And regarding the progress, the author seems to believe that the likely highly developed civilizations should, for their self-realization, outshine the surrounding stars, or even better, the galaxy in which they are located.

    Whether UFOs exist is not a question for me; twice I have had the opportunity to observe them. Note that by the term "UFO" I mean an unidentified flying object, not a Hollywood alien ship. And we are not talking about plastic bags lifted into the air by updrafts, "Chinese lanterns" or airplanes / helicopters / weather balloons, etc. about really strange looking and unusually moving objects, obviously of a man-made nature. And I think that many people who have a habit of looking into the sky will support me - often you can see a lot of interesting things there. And I firmly know that the relevant services are dealing with the issue. I suppose that many will see my comment as an opportunity to mock about consumption, mental sanity, etc. However, let me advise everyone - look at the sky more often, and keep the camera with you at all times.

    However, I allow myself to advise everyone - often look at the sky and keep the camera with you constantly.

    the camera really doesn’t hurt. I myself had the pleasure of observing UFOs in the late 80s, and for a rather long time, but there was no camera, however, like everyone who observed that object.

    Serious modern science - (paleo) geography - believes that the history of the emergence and development of the Earth, or rather the parameters of the original protosystem of the double planet Earth-Moon, was so unique that life is most likely nowhere else in the Universe. The presence of "organic matter" and "water" - as every layman points out - is nonsense, something else is needed for life to arise. And water, methane and ammonia in space heaps

      the one that we observed was also of incredible size, but it flew very slowly and silently, we even at first mistook it for an elongated airship, but the dimensions were clearly many times larger than the largest airship, and everything that a person can build.
