Natural Flying Saucers at pre Exploding Planet Earth
Natural flying saucers considered, are just natural mediums for cooling Earth's interior (their manifestations are rationalized in "Natural Flying Saucer that Fly by Natural Magnetic Fields", reference# wa2 under 'Web references' at the end).
They belong to a type of aerial objects called BHUFO that essentially are hot stuffs in the form as bubble (or Bubble Hotstuff Unoccupied Flying Object, conjectured in "Exploding Planet Earth Periodically", reference# we1).
Like volcanic or geyser ejecta, all BHUFOs dissipate Earth's heat, except that BHUFOs may be active on wider areas of the globe, with heat sources that may be much hotter, and could be considerably deeper.
Various natural agents and mechanisms may cause excessive heat to accumulate at Earth's interior. Radioactive materials at the core and crust could generate a considerable portion of that heat (reference #s wb1, p1). Even much more considerable likely could be heat manifested due to transient and/or resident small black holes at the interior (a consequence of this transient black holes for humans may manifest as "Spontaneous Human Combustion", reference# wa1)..

Earth's magnetic field
Tokamak thermonuclear reactor
Internal heating could also result from interior plasma or electrically charged stuffs agitated by Earth's magnetic field fluctuations which in turn may be influenced by things like the magnetosphere (in reference# wa2) as well as by other factors external or internal to Earth.
Heating of plasma through magnetic fields actually was done in developing a type of powerplant called thermonuclear reactor. Used with other means to heat plasma, temperatures like the sun's interior or millions of degree may be reached, more than enough to fuse certain atomic nuclei that collide and release stupendous energy. Limitless fuel for thermonuclear reactors may be derived from Earth's oceans.
In the thermonuclear reactor called Tokamak, a "rapid compression" procedure called "magnetic compression" effected rapid magnetic field increase that heated plasma. The deed was done by moving plasma to an area with more intense magnetic field, effectively increasing, and also fluctuating, field strength subjected on the plasma (in reference# wc1).
For Earth, regular daily magnetic field fluctuations with two peak strengths may occur on each and all time zones as the planet rotates: around 3:00 A.M. and around 10:00 P.M. Yearly regular fluctuations may also occur from September to October. (in reference# wa2)
The sun's magnetic poles which flip every twelve years could have effects on Earth's magnetosphere and magnetic fields. Earth's magnetic pole reversals by comparison have irregular occurrence, happening about 5,000 years to 50,000,000 years after an event. (in reference #s: wc2, wc3)
Most likely, other space factors may cause random fluctuations with unknown and much higher peak strengths than the regular variety.
Earth's magnetic field fluctuation may heat the interior as field strength increases or else decreases, giving higher temperatures on more rapid fluctuations. The effect may be similar to that in electric voltage transformers wherein electron flow is induced only during periods while magnetic field either builds up or collapses (reference# wa2). Transformers cannot work on direct current, only on alternating or on fluctuating currents.
Earth's interior structure
The central regions at Earth's supposedly all-solid inner core has an aspect that could cause generated heat to accumulate: there any point is almost the center of the planet's mass and gravitational force is practically non-existent, with the force diminishing to zero towards the exact mass center.
The region, further is protected by solid surrounding metal (like a bathysphere, used for very deep sea dives), minimizing or cancelling other physical forces that might originate from outside.
Stuffs in the region and vicinity have low tendency to move on gravitational reasons alone, and may not wander too far in quite a while even if not constricted by surrounding solids. Centrifugal force from Earth's rotation could have some significant influence on their movements there.
Pressures there are mainly due to internal heat (caused by external factors other than Earth's gravity), tending to cause an "exploding planet" event, against the weight of upper level stuffs.
On minimal gravitational attraction or low compressive pressure, matter stuffs have minimal chance to congregate to more substantial states. Also, stuffs subjected to lower compressive pressures proportionately need lower temperatures to become less substantial and more fluid (a 'Thermodynamics' thing): solids liquefy, liquids vaporize to gases, and gases become plasma (matter that is not solid and can flow, whatever its state may be called fluid).
Earth's inner core may not have turned completely solid on formation. A central undetected pocket or pockets may be fluid with much nebulous stuffs (gas and plasma).
The pockets would remain fluid until core temperatures drop to some lower value. Then hollow spaces may remain, with solid or liquid particles in suspension, still able to be completely fluid again at higher temperatures.
In cross section the central regions might look like the cheese as depicted in some cartoons, pockmarked with holes. There may be an extra large pocket situated on Earth's exact mass center.
Heat generated inside a central fluid pocket passes through peripheral fluid surfaces and is conducted through the surrounding solid metal core of the planet, eventually radiated to space. Fluid pocket size and nebulous constitution have much effect on how fast heat passes out.
Bigger size equates to smaller proportionate peripheral area that can pass the bigger internal heat, and nebulous stuff do not conduct heat as well as solid or liquid. The peripheral surface area may also be a smooth metallic mirror that reflect back energy radiated from inside.
As a result heat flow may be bottlenecked or limited at fluid surfaces and internally generated heat may accumulate in the interior, raising internal temperatures.
A central fluid pocket may grow as it gets hotter, turning to fluid constricting solids and/or expanding constrictions. Earth may also get bigger. Gravitational force at higher levels and on the surface may change if mass is displaced up from the central regions.
Earth is growing now, as scientific studies have shown (in reference# wa4), and expanding fluid pockets in the inner core or elsewhere could be among the growth factors. The size increase could vary but may remain positive as temperature and size of fluid pockets increase.
Expansion of planets may result from accumulation and build up of heat in fluid pockets that could not be relieved by the usual heat dissipating mechanisms, a process that if ongoing is liable to continue and ultimately end in catastrophic explosion.
Either or both of the two said deep-acting disemboweling conditions (central fluid heat accumulation and rapid magnetic field fluctuation) may set exploded planet events. Magnetic field lines of force that fluctuate outside a planet's mass may fluctuate at the inner core and may generate heat in fluid pockets that contain plasma.
The regular daily fluctuations set by the planet's rotation (around 3:00 A.M. and around 10:00 P.M. for Earth) with the less frequent and the random fluctuations may accumulate heat in fluid pockets that might be released only at temperatures much higher than that of surroundings, or at exploding planet conditions.
An indication that magnetic field influences had factored in a possible exploding planet event may be indications of water or its traces in the residues that could also mean water abundance on the planet that exploded.
Water has good affinity with electricity, and electricity has influential relations with magnetism (reference# wa2). Any or all of these factors (magnetism, electricity, water) may also be present in humans, although for some reason instead of exploding, humans may only undergo "Spontaneous Human Combustion" (reference# wa1).
These factors were present apparently in a suspected completely exploded planet between Mars and Jupiter that disappeared maybe around 3,998,000_B.C. or else 3,198,000_B.C. The solar system's global envelop of icy comets known as the Oort Cloud about 1 light year from the sun may partly contain a considerable though the lighter parts of exploded fragments.
The planet was calculated as massive as one of the major planets (Saturn), of which the catastrophe left (at the original orbital path) only a relatively small residue, now known as the 'main asteroid' belt. The rest of the pieces are at the Solar System's edges and in interstellar or deeper space (in reference# we2 titled "Exploding a Planet").
Large planetary mass could have further aggravated explosive conditions, with minimal surface area for radiating the planet's large internal heat to space.
Rapid magnetic fluctuation though is a strange thing that might not relate much with size, a variable that could be influenced by many unknowable factors.
External agents from the great sun or from the greater universe could easily set the disemboweling condition. There are also certain planetary tantrums, quirks and/or sentients that might have similar effects on a planet's magnetic fields without exotic external help.
Significant change in rotation speed, caused by events like blowing a moon to orbit from planet with much reduction in mass, may fluctuate the field rapidly (magnetic pole reversals no doubt have some effects, though heat generated may not be as rapid, not unless the reversal is a sudden flip).
Events or entities that set up too much substances like water vapor, unshielded electrical stuffs, or other things that significantly affect the planet's magnetic field could also disembowel the planet.
That is, magnetic field fluctuation is quite an unpredictable beast. Planets that are small may not have much size advantage if their fields fluctuate very rapidly. Little ones like Earth could just pop away, with undetectable residue.
Besides the induced internal heat buildup, rotating planets with magnetic fields may harbor four more explosive forces that could make sure the planet really explodes.
These last four may accumulate power sufficient to explode astronomical host bodies as big as galaxies (details in "Dowsing for Water, Preexploding Planet Earth and Exploding Galaxies", reference# wa3).
Earth's Interior books
Earth so far at least did not do the "completely exploding planet" thing, although a lesser event could have flung a part of the planet to space, leaving just a little bit posted nearby in orbit as the moon and scattering the rest somewhere else (one of various hypotheses about the origin of the moon).
One or more of Earth's central fluid pockets could have from time to time get much hotter than surrounding solids, and may either drift up or else eject smaller nebulous bubbles at its peripheries that can do the same, liquefying or vaporizing intervening solids in its path.
Effectively the same spot in Earth's central sections, fluid or solid, may produce a train of bubbles spaced regularly apart at intervals that could be as long as geologic. This could cause regular disasters above for living things, like the puzzling 'periodic mass extinctions' of past ages (in "Asteroids and Other Mass Killers", reference# we3 at the end).
The size of an ascending bubble may be influenced by surrounding materials that exert increasing pressures up to a certain level when rising from the central regions, and decreasing pressures when the level is passed. Heat inputs from different sources during the passage with losses may also have significant effects on bubble temperature and thus size.
Ascent speed ultimately is set by internal heat and temperatures. The bubble may shoot up to the top and above like there was nothing in in its path if hot enough and sufficiently large, exploding planet Earth's crust or more in the process.
Similar bubbles of very hot stuff could have been some of the huge fireballs documented in recent and old human histories, but apparently not big enough for large scale mass killings. In Earth's older histories it could have caused mass extinctions or greater catastrophes, and was obviously quite large.
On the other hand a legend of the Hopi indians in North America says that three of mankind's prior world orders had been destroyed before and that the destruction of the current order will be preceded by the appearance of a star (reference# we1). The legend could be right, but the star may come from Earth's bowels, not from outer space.
Materials from the crust or from as deep as Earth's central regions may move with internal heat dissipating up through various mechanisms (via bubbles, convection, etc.), eventually forming above ground or in underground spaces as natural flying saucers and other BHUFOs.
Plasma may become gas on exposure to cooler surroundings. Gas may liquefy then solidify with further cooling. Metals if present may be the first to liquefy, particularly the more heat resistant (like titanium, a light metal used in high speed air crafts).
A metallic bubble shell may form as peripheral hot stuffs cool down, built up from metallic elements in nebulous stuffs (gas and/or plasma) and/or other stuffs brought up from below. Something about liquids called surface tension and strong bonding in metals hold stuffs in place as shell builds up.
Manual production of glass bottle
BHUFO shell building processes may have similarities in the formation of a glass bottle at the end of a pipe stuck with molten glass lump and blown at the other end by a glass blower.
Hot stuffs under pressure may squeeze up through openings or vents in the crust to larger spaces and cooler environments (the top surface or cavities underground), and be blown by its constituent nebulous stuffs into BHUFO forms (like bottles from glass lumps).
Other natural processes, not feasible with the manual production of bottles, may also further facilitate the prodsuction of BHUFO as follows:
Artificial flying saucer
1. As much BHUFO materials as needed to produce a bubble of volume large enough to rise may automatically come up from below, continuously sucked for as long as the volume increases (blown initially by expanding nebulous stuffs).
2. A developing BHUFO may also spin, increasing its volume by centrifugal forces in addition to nebulous stuff pressure:
Like whirlpools or water going down a drain, development materials and developing shell spin as an effect of coriolis force (a result of Earth's rotation that make affected fluids spin - clockwise as viewed from above for northern hemisphere fluids, and the opposite direction for southern fluids).
3. The spin may strengthen the shell by purifying BHUFO materials, especially nearer the incoming flow where stuffs are hotter and more fluid, segregating elements that do not mix. Impurities may drop or shed off near the opening. Heavier elements may move to the outer surface.
4. Expansion cools (a natural Thermodynamics effect) nebulous stuffs along with other surrounding materials, in addition to cooling by external environmental factors, ultimately solidifying the shell.
5. A BHUFO may rise when large enough to be buoyant in the air, or if the constituents
weighing it down that may be shed were shed off. Vertical lift off and rising may be accelerated if the BHUFO is magnetic (plasma and/or electrical charges or ions). An updraft generated by its own internal heat may also help.
Any entry opening at the bottom may have no effect on that rise, and may either close or remain open, depending on bonding tendencies or surface tension in the shell or in trailing materials. Ii may also form as a tube, which might look like exhaust when extruded. A spinning and lightweight BHUFO may rise a little balanced on the tube as if suspended, before finally taking off.
Natural flying saucer and other end products
The flying saucer form is a natural development for BHUFO materials blown and spun freely in an open unconstricted space, with the bubble expanding by nebulous stuff pressure to upright egg form, plus more expansion sidewards to a flattened shape from the spin's centrifugal forces.
Heavier constituents may drop and be flung outwards to form a lower rim, while lighter or hotter nebulous stuffs remain as a central bulging top.
Bubbles with higher proportions of the heavier BHUFO materials become saucers with flatter profile and wider lower rim. The central bulge if existing may diminish or drop if internal temperatures drop.
A sinkhole may result if BHUFO production occurs in on underground space, the former manifesting if one or more of the latter had risen near enough the surface or had broken free.
BHUFOs in a sinkhole may coalesce as a single unit, with partitions that could strengthen the unit's columnar shape. Exiting, the column may be flung from upright to prone position by a spinning bottom's contact with hole rim, and/or by wind forces.
A columnar BHUFO that spins in the open may also bulge somewhat around the mid-section, acquiring horizontal stability and a nicer flying cigar look.
Materials that develop into BHUFOs may be positively charged, as they may come from an outer partition of Earth that is positively charged (reference# wa2). BHUFOs likely may leave Earth's surface as positively charged bubbles.

Life's life in the universe
Apparently a major and dependable mass killer for Earth's living things may ultimately be identifiable as the planet's magnetic field.
For preliminaries the killer time to time may agitate and heat up the interior until the energy accumulated translates to some catastrophic explosion outside.
As finisher the trustworthy guy eventually may blowup the planet, leaving no pieces usable for most living things (reference #s wa2, we2; this could have happened more than once in the past with other planets of the solar system).
Such catastrophes could be normal processes for many planets in the universe. To top it though, water bearing planets, Life's havens, seem to be particularly susceptible.
Civilizations that survived such disasters could be but just a tiny fraction of the total exterminated, perhaps those that incredibly became brilliant just in time or were just plain lucky, and had advanced to high enough levels in their sciences and in their internal unity.
The actual number of well developed extra-terrestrial civilizations on their own home planets right now that might be detected by mankind's current detection setups may be very limited. Some scientists have wondered if mankind as intelligent life form is actually alone in the universe.
Advanced or superior extra-terrestrials now may mostly live either as unseen refugees somewhere in the home planets of less advanced life forms, or else as roving nomads somewhere in their home galaxies and in other parts of the universe.
Planetary conquests and similar activities generally may not interest their personality types because of traumatic past racial experiences and other considerations. Likely self-sufficient and characteristically aloof, they may ignore communication attempts of other sentients.
Yup, some extra-terrestrial stories may be true after all and some flying saucers may not be natural, nor man-made. Refugee extra-terrestrials could have been here on this planet in the past, may still be here, and may continue arriving until dear mother Earth performs her own "exploding planet" last act.
Influences on terran things, wether intentional or unintentional, due to out-of-this-world refugees could have happened or may happen: in the past (reference# we4), in the present, or in the future.
2 SETI space-sensor hardwares
Systems for detecting extra-terrestrial intelligence (ETI) may be designed to illicit either passive or active response from targets. Radio telescopes and optical telescopes belong to the former type. The latter type, some of which may require very active response, don't look too promising.
Man's quest for ETI may not only be because of an innate compulsion for social contacts and to belong. Detecting inhuman intelligence answers the ageless wonder of whether or not the universe may sprout Life in other sectors, as well as provide habitable conditions.
Until others are detected, from Earth or by actual explorations, terrestrial Life and human intelligence might be freaks. Even worse, they might not last.
Statistical considerations suggest though that extra-terrestrial Life probably may just be around somewhere. With luck, lasting humans might detect the refined manifestations, or ETIs, while Earth is still in the preexplodng planet stage.
Systems and computers always come into play when dealing with big things, like the universe. A few universe related systems prorate their data requirements to participating home computers.
With ETI detection or SETI (Search for Extra Terrestrial Intelligence), the detecting end is handled by radio telescopes and/or other space-sensors and sensed data may be distributed to home computer participants for processing at their computers' slack free time.
The image below is of a screen provided to home computer participants for the first program with that detection scheme. Extra-terrestrial data was taken from the Arecibo Observatory in Puerto Rico.
Things had not fared well with the search though, and scrapping of the enterprise around 2011 had been considered, a normal fate that also happen with many other systems sometimes. Similar ventures that follow later might have similar luck.
Anyway, the ETIs searched for by telescopes or other space-sensors mostly could be nomads that are difficult to detect, maybe even avoiding detection and communication attempts. Refugee ETIs could also here on Earth, and they might be easier to find.
More on Earth's internal heat
Current knowledge in cosmology and other sciences available at the internet suggest that the so called "Dark Matter" which make up around 90% of the bulk of the universe has potential to input at Earth's interior excessive heat that in a reasonably short term could be explosive.
Primordial black holes deemed to constitute dark matter may pepper Earth as tiny (maybe not big) shooting black holes and continuously raise the planet's internal temperatures (in "Black holes at Pre-exploding Planet Earth's Interior", reference #wa1). Earth in its orbit around the sun may be plowing through a torrent of them that likely orbit the sun at various or different angles to the solar ecliptic.
