World UFO Day

So today is world UFO day and I want to take some time to celebrate our extraterrestrial brethren. Tons of works7 explore our relationship with aliens from the peaceful visitor, the warlike invader, galaxies of planets working together in a somewhat harmony, fictional accounts and non-fictional accounts. Through it all we readers are left staring at the sky and wondering  are they really out there, and we like the mystery.


War of the Worlds
H.G. Wells

Wells created a memorable piece of alien invasion literature. Martians come to Earth and they don’t come in peace. What happens next is a struggle between the technologically advanced Martians and the seemingly inferior humans in this work that reads as an actual account of an alien invasion.

This isn’t a war,’ said the artilleryman. ‘It never was a war, any more than there’s war between man and ants.'”

The Greys2
Whitley Strieber

The Three Thieves are a group of Grays working on creating a genetically modified human in a Kentucky town. Colonel Morax has an ominous motive for keeping the Greys’ existence a secret, Government agent Lauren Glass can communicate with a captive Grey named B for Bob, and Conner Callaghan, a nine year old child, is coming to terms with his role in this whole affair. The twist and turns happening around this Kentucky town are as much caused by the government as it is by the aliens, making for an interesting read all around.

Then stars came, millions of tiny stars all gold and green and speeding like sparks on a windy night. They surrounded the children, swirling around their bodies.”


Unconventional Flying Objects: A Former NASA Scientist Explains How UFOs Really Work
Paul R. Hill

Though aliens and extraterrestrial beings are often the focus of peoples interest in life beyond the Earth, the UFO’s and spaceships that carry them are just as interesting. Paul Hill, a NASA scientist compiled and analyzed various sightings with a focus on dynamics and technology with the hope of proving that UFO’s obey the laws of physics.

The following points are inconsistent with meteoroid travel:

1. Five thousand mph is too slow for meteoroids.
2. Several course changes were made.
3. The objects were observed coming head-on and following.
4. Two instances of acceleration were noted.
5. Meteors don’t rendezvous.

All of the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy books

Douglass Adams

Just read them seriously. Just always have your towel with you and read these books and you’ll be alright in life.

A towel, [The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy] says, is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have.


The Answer to the Great Question… Of Life, the Universe and Everything… Is… Forty-two,’ said Deep Thought, with infinite majesty and calm.
