‘Looking for a smoking gun’: Russian billionaire to fund alien-hunting mission to Saturn moon

 Russian tech billionaire-turned-ET explorer Yuri Milner says he plans to beat NASA to a mission to the Saturn moon Enceladus in search of alien lifeforms.

“The one overarching question we are asking at our foundation is: ‘Are we alone in the universe?’” said Milner, who has pledged over $200 million to the Breakthrough Initiative, an organization he founded in 2015 that observes space, and develops new means of cosmic travel.

To the person who ask's what does NASA hide? First thing is . NASA stands for " Never A Straight Answer. Secondly, They are dependent on air brushing photos before releasing them to the public. And they are not ignorant to photo shop either. As well as down right lying about the existence of alien life else where in the universe and on our own planet and the moon.They will never release anything close to the truth because they have been harboring the lies for too long, and releasing anything factual will ruin their reputation as a trustworthy Agency. which ,these days is a moot subject anyhow. Just remember this ....They are a government funded agency. And, that alone should be enough of an  explanation.

Could you please provide credible evidence that NASA conceals sensational findings? Thank you.

No in the real world it stands for National Aeronautics and Space Administration.

Can you prove that ?

What about all the other space agencies in the world ? Are they in on the conspiracy ?

Again their findings are backed up by other countries. Are they all in on the conspiracy ?

So what you are saying is that you don't have anything to back up what you are saying, just a general dislike of government.

The meteorite is best known for gaining intense media attention in 1996 when a group of scientists claimed to have found evidence for microscopic fossils of Martian bacteria in it, culminating in then U.S. president Bill Clinton giving a speech about the potential discovery.[2] These claims were controversial from the beginning, and the wider scientific community ultimately rejected the hypothesis once all the unusual features in the meteorite had been explained without requiring life to be present. Despite there being no convincing evidence of Martian life, the initial paper and scientific and public attention caused by it are considered to be turning points in the history of the developing science of astrobiology.[3]

I have used that example many times myself. The president held a press conference about it. That is hardly covering up.

I wonder what people like eddword and geraldnewfie thinks about SETI ? That is a private organisation and is thus not part of any government agency.

a.) :sleepy:

b.) The claim that NASA is hiding evidence about the existence of alien life must be backed by at least one case where a hiding has been uncovered, so pls go ahead. But, fuzzy YT vids, fuzzy images and testimonials by drunken farmers and similar dont count.

You will now provide DIRECT cited examples, thanks.  If you cannot do so, then you will withdraw it, right?

WTH?  How old are you?  The NASA 'acronym' thing is something a grade schooler would post.  As for the rest of your handwaves, here at UM we take a rather dim view of claims that are handwaved without a single example.

So, like gerald, you should now support those claims with direct examples or withdraw them.  If not, I'l l withdraw them on your behalf.

 

Frankly I'm sick to death of handwaved thread hijacks like this.  Post ONTOPIC and debate/discuss with evidence and support for your claims.

Frankly, I find that such ludicrous claims tend to withdraw themselves. Any reader/poster with even the most mediocre knowledge would recognize this. The good thing is that such posts are not as frequent as they used to be (some 10 years back), the sad thing is that they still appear.

I don't really want to be an echo chamber, but seriously? This childish assertion has been paraded for years by posters with absolutely no clue of how and why NASA works.

No, there is simply not. That is absolute ignorance on your behalf.

Really?! I am sure many people at NASA knows photoshop, doesn't mean that they actually use it.

Now you are just acting plain out stupid. Not only is your statement uneducated, but parroting claims of others long debunked doesn't bode well.

Yawn. If you actually had some knowledge you would know that most research is actually not done by NASA, but by independent research institutions across the US and elsewhere. And the *will* publish their findings. You exhibit an extraordinary lack of knowledge of what you are rambling on about.

NASA are actually far more open and transparent than the vast majority of government agencies.   Accusing then of being inherently dishonest simply because they're a government agency is simply lazy thinking.  And the 'Never A Straight Answer' thing is only used by the laziest of UFO conspiracists.

Not only that, but often NASA does NOT actually even receive the data - they farm that out to the research institutions, sometimes even schools.  That vast majority of NASA incoming data is also able to be intercepted by anyone with a big enough antenna, including ham radio enthusiasts. 

And yet, these supposedly 'knowledgable' folks can't offer up a single example of a file that has been tampered with.

Exactly.  What's more, is that they generally vanish at this point, so they will *never* learn and *never* acknowledge that they are the ones spreading false information.

I think it's time for them to put up or shut up.  So, geraldnewfie, and eddword, will you come back?

BTW, make sure you bring back the *very best* evidence you have, for NASA's alleged misdeeds.  Once we have looked at it, we can then make a judgement about your knowledge levels (or complete lack thereof).
