We are determined to determine if the “truth is out there”. If we had all the pieces, maybe they would fit together and close the gap to better understanding.
The team will collect evidence and analyze data from scientifically unexplained aerial occurrences to determine if they are natural or require another explanation. The nine-month study will begin in the fall and the results will be shared with the public.
“I spent most of my career as a cosmologist. I can tell you that we don’t know what 95% of the universe is made of,” said astrophysicist David Spiergel, who will lead the team.

It’s a living thing.
For the first time ever, scientists have learned how to grow human-like skin with a robotic finger.
According to the researchers, this progress is one step closer to making robots look and feel like living beings.
Researchers are interested in the addition of a vascular system that could help skin maintain itself, grow nails and even sweat. Having human hands could one day allow robots to help us with an amazing range of tasks.
