Is There Life in Outer Space?
Has it happened to you? It has happened to me. No we are not talking about alien abduction. I am talking about witnessing something you cannot explain. I did and it left me wondering. I was star gazing in my back yard. My eyes were drawn to a a star moving in the sky. Was it a star? The light was faint and as tiny as a star.. but it moved horizontal across the sky. And it did not move in an exact straight line either. It moved erratically, but nevertheless across the sky. I followed it with my naked eye until it flew out of sight. No more movement. I stayed there for 30 minutes trying to see if there was another one. But nothing. Was it a spaceship? Was it something not of this Earth?
My heart of hearts tells me there there is more out there than we know.. There has to be something more than just Man. Space is just way too big for just us! There are many things to support the theory of life on other planets.
Take a look about what they are doing on Mars. At least two rovers are wandering round the planet taking samples and sending data back to the Earth. Rovers Spirit and Opportunity are going at a snails pace but collecting analysis of dirt samples and taking pictures. You can find a collection of these pictures and data at NASA.gov.. The Rovers have collected evidence of water on the red planet. Digging up pockets of ice from the martian terrain. Not exactly Life but evidence that supports it. The Phoenix discovered evidence of water on June of 2008 . Even in February of 2009 the phoenix photographed what appeared to be dropletsof water on one of it's legs. The Hubble satellite is orbiting around Mars capturing Bird's eye view of the polar ice caps on either end of the Planet.

Is there proof on Earth that there is life in outer space?
There is some proof on this Earth that alien life forms exist.. Many have speculated about how the pyramids were built with out the use of modern technology. Huge blocks of stone were placed on top of each other by man and the use of pulleys? Maybe if Egyptians were maybe huge back then.
Stonehenge on Easter Island also has been a source of mystery. What does this structure mean? Also how was this structure erected? Many have claimed that an advanced technology was used to erect the large stones. How was this accomplished with the Polynesian people in 2950 BC?
Whose faces did they carve and for what reason. The Easter Island Heads also known as Moia have been linked to celebrating the Gods. These statues in themselves were around 82 tons and there were nearly 882 of them on the island. Due to their extreme weight it is difficult to ascertain how they were made. A far fetched theory was given about how aliens could have crashed on Easter Island and molded the Moia out of volcanic rock..
The Bermuda Triangle also known as he Devil's Triangle has caused many ships and planes to go missing. A theory about aliens suggests Anti-gravity technology or other otherworldly energies may be sent off by either a downed UFO, as many of the early reports of the Triangle believed. Also, the Triangle may provide an undersea Earth base for aliens who value privacy, and send out energies to confuse vessels coming a little too close to home.
Crop circles have been cropping up all over the place! Believe it or not crop circles have been around since the 17th century. Most crop circles are man made, such as those in the slideshow.. Theories abound about aliens landing and making the shape of the circles. Some crop circles in question haven proven to be created by ionized air.
Are these enough to convince us there is life in outer space?
Is there proof with in the government that there is life in outer space?
There have been many reported sightings and claims of alien abduction. These have been reported and documented by the government. Many have speculated that there are government conspiracies to keep us from finding out the truth. The following are a few examples of the most popular government conspiracies about possible life in outer space.
This military base is notorious for it secretivenss. Mnay have specualted that there is a large association between theis base and Unideintified flying objects. The base's mission is for top secret experimental aircraft and weapon's systems. It is located in the Nevada desert and has at least 25 miles of restricted air space
Project blue book
Project Blue Book was a task force from the Air Force to "investigate" UFO sightings. At least that is what the government told us. It's real purpose was to catalog the sightings and pictures and to try to put the community at rest. From 1947 to 1969, a total of 12, 618 sightings were reported to Project Blue Book. 701 of those sightings were reported to be unidentified.. Project Blue Book closed down in 1969 and does not have any information regarding sightings after that. The sightings are in archive and available to the public. It is reported there is 3 cubic feet or nearly 6000 pages collected about UFO sightings by the Office of Special Investigations. These investigations have been microfilmed and are available for viewing if you go to the archive.
Interestingly enough this statement is made on the webpage concerning the archives:
Periodically, it is erroneously stated that the remains of extraterrestrial visitors are or have been stored at Wright-Patterson AFB. There are not now nor ever have been, any extraterrestrial visitors or equipment on Wright-Patterson Air Force Base.
UFO buffs boast that actual alien remains were taken for a crash site in Roswell New Mexico. The incident allegedly happened on July 8, 1947, when the Roswell Army Air field had recovered a "flying disk" and reembodies of aliens form a crash site. This incident was forgotten and dismissed as a "weather balloon" until 1978. A Major Jeffery Marcel was interviewed in 1978. He discussed that alien autopsies had been preformed at the Roswell site. An investigation in 1995. Project Mongol as it was called was described to be weather balloons. A second report released in 1997 stated "The second report, released in 1997, concluded that reports of recovered alien bodies were likely a combination of: innocently transformed memories of military accidents involving injured or killed personnel; innocently transformed memories of the recovery of anthropomorphic dummies in military programs like Project High Dive conducted in the 1950s; and hoaxes perpetrated by various witnesses and UFO proponents"
Do You Believe?
I it is difficult for me to believe that mankind exists alone in the Universe. Outer Spaceis just too big and mysterious not to have other life forms. There are many hoax's of course and many people who want attention or to make a buck. With today's technology cell phones Internet and cameras and all the advances in outer space it won't be long until some new undeniable information is readily available to us. Something to prove there is more than just us. When that happens will we be ready? ;)
