Been watching a lot of Battlestar Galactica season 4 lately. Did see it before but just had to buy the dvd box last week. Already got the mini-series and the first 3 seasons so that was a no-brainer. What an awesome show. Every sci-fi fan should have seen this show. Great acting, great story, great SFX. And if you're a guy like me, great babes.
But I'm afraid my fetish runs a bit deeper. Don't know what it is but women in sci-fi have an edge, for me that is. Stick 'em in a spacesuit and I'm sold. But Tricia Helfer and Grace Park did a wonderful job on Battlestar Galactica, and they just happen to look good in bikini as well. Right? So say we all!

A police officer contacted British UFO experts after seeing three aliens examining a freshly made crop circle near Avebury, Wiltshire.
The sergeant, who has not been named, was off-duty when he saw the figures standing in a field near Silbury Hill, and stopped his car to investigate. However, as he approached the 'men' – all over 6ft tall with blond hair – he heard "the sound of static electricity" and the trio ran away ''faster than any man he had ever seen''.
The officer returned to his home in Marlborough, Wiltshire, and contacted paranormal experts and told them he had spotted a UFO. Wiltshire Police has refused to comment on the incident, saying it is a ''personal matter'' for the officer involved.
Crop circle researcher Andrew Russell, who is investigating the bizarre sighting on behalf of the officer, described the moment his sighting was made. He said: ''At first he thought they were forensic officers as they were dressed in white coveralls. He stopped his car and approached the field. ''The figures were all over 6ft and had blond hair. They seemed to be inspecting the crop. When he got to the edge of the field he heard what he believed to be a sound not dissimilar to static electricity.
''This crackling noise seemed to be running through the field and the crop was moving gently, close to where the noise was.
''He shouted to the figures who, at first, ignored him, not glancing at him. When he tried to enter the field they looked up and began running. ''He said; 'They ran faster than any man I have ever seen. I'm no slouch but they were moving so fast. I looked away for a second and when I looked back they were gone. ''I then got scared. The noise was still around but I got an uneasy feeling and headed for the car. For the rest of the day I had a pounding headache I couldn't shift.'' The bizarre incident occurred on the morning of July 6 this year as the police officer was driving.
The officer claims the three figures were examining a crop circle, which had appeared several days earlier, when he stopped his car and began walking towards them. However, the mysterious beings disappeared when he ''looked away for a second'' and he contacted UFO experts after witnessing other paranormal activity. A spokesman for Wiltshire Police said: ''The police officer was apparently off duty when this happened so we have no comment to make because it is a personal not a police matter.''
Crop circle expert Colin Andrews, who investigated the incident alongside Andrew Russell, said he is ''convinced'' by the police officer's story. He said: ''I am quite convinced the officer had an experience that day and one that we have not fully explored.
''I think with the unusual movement of the being and the poltergeist experiences there is too much additional information to say that is something in nothing.''

Intriquing footage taken from the Mir space station. To my knowledge rocket boosters or upper stage rockets don't reach that high, and they (launch control) certainly wouldn't bring space objects so close together especially in the middle of a docking procedure. Maybe it's a piece of space debri but it's definitely a UFO, Unidentified Flying Object.

Raj Rajaratnam, billionaire and hedgefund manager, couldn't resist the temptation to cheat. He was arrested for leading a group that traded stock with fore-knowledge. Bad boy! Rajaratnam who headed a hedgefund called Galleon - worth 350 billion dollar - is out on the street again after posting bail (100 million dollar). 5 other people were arrested as well. Just goes to show you that scum can wear expensive suits.

Saw this video clip in the tv documentary 'Out Of The Blue' and it depicts a crash of some aerial vehicle. The site itself where the footage was taken raises questions about the origin of the object. White Sands is home to a missile range and many new types of missiles and rockets were and are tested there. My guess is that we are looking at a missile here but the footage itself could be easily interpreted as a UFO crashing, and to be honest I'm not totally convinced either way.
Normally a (high explosive) missile would break up on impact immediately and not skid of the ground for a second try. Reading a counter argument from the internet, it could also have been a structurally reinforced missile. Those types that are designed for bunker-busting or ground penetration. Exactly 2 seconds in the video after the object hit the ground and is moving upwards again you can see a line above the light which could very well be dirt picked up from the ground. For a moment I thought it might have shown the upper structure of the craft.
Searching the internet for details surrounding this footage I wasn't able to locate the source. Lots of opinions by people though which are interesting in itself because it shows how people handle the film. Some UFO researchers claimed this was an actual UFO crash, others claim it is a missile test and finally some people claim it was a hoax (by some artist). It takes on many avenues. I'm going to be a coward for now and remain undecided.

Ran across these pictures on a forum. These were taken in the U.S. on the 28 of March, 1974. A 16 year old man by the name of Robert Schwier allegedly took these pictures. It's pretty hard to find information about the photographs but through an internet translator I get something like this (from a French UFO site).
Robert Schwier, 16, a member of a photo club was visiting the city park. He had already taken a few photographs and around 3 P.M. he reached a clearing. Suddenly he heard a low humming sound. Over the top of the trees there was a silver dome shaped object that sparked. When the object began to rise the young man took his first picture. He managed to take 3 photographs in total. The sighting lasted 45 seconds. The diameter of the object was estimated to be between 5 to 8 meters. No apparent propulsion system was visible. The craft carried out unbelievable maneuvers.
Below is a blow-up of the object, from the 3 photographs.
