The files contain a wide range of UFO-related documents covering the years 1978â€“2002. So if you want to find out more about lights in the sky over Waterloo Bridge, near misses by pilots, crop circles – and what the UK government thought of it all – this is the place to start.
On a related note, NASA announced the discovery of an object in our Galaxy astronomers have been hunting for more than 50 years but no evidence of aliens or an asteroid that will wipe out the Earth found.

Microsoft launches a free tool that allows amateur star-gazers to explore the universe from their computers. The WorldWide Telescope (WWT) is a Web 2.0 visualization software environment that enables your computer to function as a virtual telescopeâ€”bringing together imagery from the best ground and space-based telescopes in the world for a seamless exploration of the universe.
This is a virtual telescope for you and me. You can now view galaxies, exotic nebulae and exploding stars from your own computer Want to see the same images that scientists use for their research or perform your own research with those images? Do you want to see the Earth from the same perspective that astronauts see as they descend to Earth? Try this software.
System requirements to run WWT
- 2GHz or faster processor
- 2GB of RAM
- 1-10GB of free disk space
- Graphics card with 128 MB RAM or 256 VRAM
- Windows XP Service Pack 2 or Windows Vista
- Net connection
- Macs must run Windows OS

Let us see how to configure MS-Internet Explorer to use a proxy server over a Local Area Network (LAN) connection. You need following information before configuring proxy server:
- Proxy Server IP address
- Proxy Server Port number
- Proxy server username and password (optional, but some organization use authentication to secure their server)
Internet Explorer proxy server settings
- Fire a web browser i.e. Open IE
- Click on the Tools menu
- Select Internet Options > Select Connections tab
Click LAN Settings
- Select “Use a proxy server for your LAN” check box
- Type the IP address of the proxy server (such as 192.168.1.254).
- Type the port number that is used by the proxy server for client connections (by default, 8080 or 3128).

A NUCLEAR fusion laboratory designed to re-create the temperatures and pressures of an exploding star could be built in England under plans being drawn up by British scientists.
A supernovae / supernovas is a stellar explosion. They are extremely luminous and cause a burst of radiation that may briefly outshine an entire galaxy before fading from view over several weeks or months. Now scientists plan supernova blasts in lab to tap energy.
The aim is to build some of the world’s most powerful lasers and use them to blast tiny pellets of hydrogen fuel to create energy.
The process is similar to the supernova explosion that heralds the death of a star.
Researchers say the process could offer a partial solution to the world’s energy crisis, offering a source of carbon-free power with only a minimum of radioactive waste.
Numerous theoretical accounts of memory have differentiated memory for facts and memory for context. Our mind’s limit found – 4 things at once.
Memory is an organism’s ability to store, retain, and subsequently retrieve information. Human memory is short. And we would do well to remember that, say researchers at the University of Missouri-Columbia. When we present phone numbers, we present them in groups of three and four, which helps us to remember the list said University of Missouri-Columbia psychologist Nelson Cowan, who co-led the study with colleagues Jeff Rouder and Richard Morey.
That inflates the estimate. We believe we’re approaching the estimate that you get when you cannot group. There is some controversy over what the real limit is, but more and more I’ve found people are accepting this kind of limit.
While most of us may only be able to hold three or four things in mind at once, some people have achieved amazing feats of working memory.
