WELCOME TO MY BLOG

Hello there and welcome. The purpose of this Blog is to support, promote and accelerate the achievement of a First Contact Event. The discovery of Alien Life will change Life on our planet forever. At that point, we will finally realize, that this planet is the only home we have and we need to take care of it. Repair the damage we have already done. I created this blog, because I am a strong believer, that First Contact and taking care of the planet are two interlinked issues. Eco-friendly living, protection of the environment and eating healthy foods is the way of the future. I tried to put together useful articles, related links and some other pertinent information. We can start to live in the future right now, and by the time First Contact will happen, we already have a head start. Come back often, because there is always something new to discover. Send me your comments and suggestions anytime. Thank you for stopping by. Please sign up with your email, to stay updated.

THE CONNECTION BETWEEN SPACE EXPLORATION AND ECO FRIENDLY LIVING

No matter if you are into Aquaponics, Farming, Gardening or anything else Green,  believe me there is a connection to space exploration, and not just one, but several. This is gonna be just a short overview, or otherwise this article would just be too long. okay, lets get started.

If we going to do long term Space Travel and colonization, we have to feed the crew. Period. That simple. As you can imagine, endless supply lines with cargo ships isn't gonna do the trick. Just not practical. We need something on site, just like here on earth, something recyclable and something that doesn't need a whole lot of resupplying. That's where aquaculture, more specific aquaponics comes into play.  A closed circuit Aquaponics system can produce needed vegetables and a variety of seafood, it doesn't need a lot of "topping off", and powered with solar panels, its gonna be almost self sustaining. As i said before, we will get into details with other articles along the way.

Now, lets look at Farming and Gardening in space. Aquaponics is fine, but we also need some sustainable food production at the site of any colony. Of course, at the beginning it will probably be more on a gardening scale, rather than a large farming operation. There is of course the question of soil availability and quality. However, with new technology and some twisting of the available soil, its not gonna be too difficult to produce healthy sturdy growing beds. A few flowers, to lighten up the decoration would be nice too. NASA, several universities, as well as private space companies have already started to run experiments along those lines.

Last, but not least, the energy problem. Its clear and simple, that we need a steady renewable energy supply to make all those things happen. Solar panels are a given, but lets not forget that we can also use wind energy on other planets. Since there are storms on mars, some type of wind turbines are definitely a possibility. There are also a lot of other ways to create energy, but as said before, we will get into details later.

So, every time from now on, when you attend to your garden or farm, or you check on your aquaponics system, think about the possibilities to have all this working on other planets or moons. Who knows, one of you might just come up with a breakthrough.

Okay, so this is it for the overview. I hope you enjoyed the article, and come back for more. Maybe you can just sign up to stay updated.

Search for extraterrestrial life ... UFO, ANCIENT ALIENS, EXTRATERRESTRIAL LIFE

While scientists keep looking for new ways and technology to expand the reach of the search for extraterrestrial life, we might find some sort of alien life right here in our own solar system. There are several moons, around several planets, that look very promising to have alien life forms. Let the search continue, but closer to home. And just in case, we run into alien life, here or somewhere else in the cosmos, scientist have revised an old scale, to grade the level of First Contact, when it happens.
As always, please share this post before you leave. thank you for your support. Enjoy the articles.

Signs Of Life On Jupiter’s Moon Europa Could Be Lurking Right Under Its Surface



For the last 20 years, Jupiter’s moon Europa has been regarded as our best bet of finding traces of alien life. Ever since NASA’s Galileo mission uncovered evidence that the icy moon may harbor a global ocean underneath its frozen surface, scientists have been pondering over its capacity of hosting life forms — or even just biosignatures to indicate whether or not it was once habitable.

Scientists revise rio scale


https://www.geekwire.com/2018/scientists-come-revised-rio-scale-rate-claims-extraterrestrial-contact/

To provide a reality check, the International Academy of Astronautics adopted a 1-to-10 rating system for claims of contact, known as the Rio scale, back in the early 2000s. Now a group of astronomers is proposing a “Rio 2.0” scale that brings the reality check up to date.


Search For Alien Life Expands, Millions Of Stars To Be Surveyed

The upgrade not only enables scientists to observe a huge swath of the Milky Way but also serves as a faster technique for detecting the presence of alien civilizations anywhere around millions of stellar neighborhoods. Essentially, scientists will be able to process data at a whopping 130 gigabits per second, which is thousands of times of faster than a standard broadband connection.

Moving fish farms enables seagrass meadows to thrive, study shows ... Renewable energy

If its Gardening, Farming, Aquaculture, or any type of interaction with the environment, at the end it all comes down to Eco sustainability. If its the production of  bio fuels, or production of food, it all need to be sustainable. If its not, the entire Eco system of this planet will eventually collapse. Game over. That simple. So, by implementing new techniques and processes, we can assure, that we can produce enough food, renewable energy and still have a functioning Eco system, Biodiversity and therefore forests and natural habitats for many generations to come. This two articles below, give us some examples, about how this can be achieved. As always, please share this post (share buttons below), and help us spread the word. Thank you for your support. Enjoy the Blog.

the meadows boost human well-being and the economies of coastal communities, but waste material from finfish aquaculture is known to have damaged seagrass populations worldwide.
However, off the coast of Cyprus in the Mediterranean Sea, many fish farms have been moved into  – and on the seabeds beneath their previous locations, the meadows are flourishing once again.

UFO, ANCIENT ALIENS, DYSON SPHERE ... Space travel

Regardless, if you are into UFO's, Ancient Aliens, Extraterrestrial live, or space exploration in general, this are two very interesting writings. The first article explores the possibility of creating a Dyson sphere to harness the power of a star. the second article, provides some more details about the cover up of an Ufo incident in California. Two great reads, worth to check out. As always, please share this post before you leave. Thank you for your support. Enjoy.

Could aliens harness stars to keep ahead of expanding universe?



A Dyson sphere is a theoretical structure able to house a star. Originally proposed by Freeman Dyson, the sphere was originally envisioned as a group of satellites completely encompassing a star to capture all of its energy. That energy could then be used for whatever purposes the civilization that created it desired. In this new effort, Hooper suggests aliens might be creating similar structures to provide power once the  expands to an untenable size.

Military Report: UFOs May Have Attempted Rendezvous With Giant Undersea Object

new details are emerging about a UFO sighting recorded by the U.S. military in the waters off the coast of California 14 years ago. The 2004 incident involving the “Tic Tac” UFO, named because it was a fast-moving white object that resembled one of the mints, was first revealed late last year by The New York Times and The Washington Post.

UFO'S, Ancient Alien Theory, Extraterrestrial Life ... How Alien bacteria can survive in space and how Ancient Aliens might have taken advantage of this

If you are into UFO, Ancient Aliens Theory, extraterrestrial life or space exploration in general, this are exiting times for all of us. It seems, that with every day, we are getting closer to First Contact. With ever advancing technology, we are able to explore more and more of the cosmos. Scientists are upgrading existing scales, to better classify any alien contact we may have. At the same time, we are learning more and more about bacteria and their ability to survive in outer space, or inside any type of space rocks. All exiting news for us. Enjoy this articles, and please share this post before you leave. Thank you for your support.

First contact or false alarm? New Richter-like scale for alien signals | Science | The Guardian



When a team of Russian astronomers reported in 2015 that a telescope in the Caucasus region had intercepted a mysterious signal from a distant star, talk of extraterrestrials was not far behind. As some asked: was this proof aliens were trying to contact us?




https://hiddenremote.com/2018/07/04/ancient-aliens-protocols/

How did aliens get here? One theory that’s barely related to this episode of Ancient Aliens is panspermia. Essentially, life came from space. Furthermore, a stratospheric balloon experiment proves there are non-Earth-based microbial entities entering our atmosphere. In other words aliens have conducted directed panspermia, launching their spores to Earth.

How outdoor activities, like Gardening or Aquafarming can benefit your mental an physical health

I don't believe, that we need a study, to confirm that Gardening and working with a small Aquaculture system, is beneficial to our overall health. However, its nice to see that science backs up common knowledge at times. Nothing beats being in or near nature. That's fore sure. We can also live a healthy lifestyle, by using only eco friendly products, or try to bring a little bit of nature into our homes.

Since we just mentioned aquaculture, lets see, what science has to say about it: We all know, that seafood consumption is on the rise, and wild stocks, are heavily over fished. Especially the smaller feed fish. Now, commercial aquaculture can produce plenty of seafood and relive the pressure on the wild stocks. However, everything has it up and down sides. Read the second article. It takes a closer look a the problem. As always, i hope you enjoy this post, and please don't forget to share it before you leave (share buttons at the end). Thanks for stopping by my blog, and please help to protect mother nature.


Spending time outdoors is arguably one of the best ways to improve our mental and physical wellbeing, and gardening is a great way to do this. The benefits of being outside are about more than just enjoying some fresh air though.

https://medicalxpress.com/news/2018-06-gardening-mood.html?utm_source=nwletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=daily-nwletter

As seafood consumption outpaces the growth of other food sectors and continues to grow worldwide, farmed seafood—also called aquaculture—has increased rapidly to meet consumer demand. That means aquatic farming now puts the most pressure on the smaller  fish harvested to feed their larger farmed counterparts such as salmon, carp and tilapia.

Innovative ways to grow food, make it more flavorful and safe soil at the same time

Better Farming, Gardening and Aquaculture practices, can help saving space, soil and keep the environment clean. By using new and innovative practices, we can grow food at small or large scale on a lot less space than with current methods. In the future, the demand  for food will rise, while at the same time space and soil will get more and more scarce. This is, while we need to keep looking for better ways to produce food, embrace new technologies and find ways to protect the environment at the same time. Not an easy task, but absolutely necessary and achievable. Please enjoy the post, and also don't forget to share before you leave. Thank you for your support.



A new way to farm indoors using different wavelengths of light could boost the taste of fruits, salads and herbs, while also increasing food supply and nutritional value.

With a rapidly increasing global population, there is growing need for food. But, as there is a tremendous decline in the area of fertile land, one possible solution is aquaponics – growing fish and vegetables in an integrated, soil-free system.
