The remaining dry land still holds many unmapped territories and unexplored areas that are only now being revealed with the help of the latest laser scanning technology (LIDAR). Scientists even consider the 21st century to be the “new age of exploration”, as they are confident that the newly developed equipment will lead to legendary discoveries.
National Geographic explains in an article how little we have discovered so far.
When the National Geographic Society awarded its first archaeology grant to Hiram Bingham in 1912, the archaeologists headed off to Machu Picchu with one of the most advanced pieces of technology at that time: a Kodak panoramic camera.
More than a hundred years later, archaeologists have a staggering array of technological tools to employ, from remote-sensing equipment that allows us to see beyond the visual bandwidth to computers so powerful that they can process in a second what it would take humans thousands of years to do.

It’s a cosmic game of hide-and-seek. A team of astronomers say that the next search for advanced extraterrestrial civilisations should look for stars – or even galaxies – that have vanished without a trace, as anything so unexplainable could only be due to life far more intelligent than us.
Beatriz Villarroel at Uppsala University in Sweden says this crazy idea has been gnawing at her since her first year of graduate studies. Now she and two undergraduates have finally taken the plunge. They scoured multiple surveys of the night’s sky by eye in order to see if any of nearly 300,000 light sources disappeared from one survey to the next.
So far the results are mixed. The team found one interesting artefact that looks like it might have vanished, but they can’t be sure. “It was a depressing case in the sense that we neither could reject it and neither could we say that it was a real candidate,” says Villarroel. Although the team checked for so-called false positives, throwing out hundreds of similar disappearing objects, this one withstood all tests – but only just.

Yesterday researchers revealed how a top UFO researcher had dared the US Government to charge him after he went public with his own Wikileaks of 11 pages of top-secret explosive UFO files from American and Canada.
Among the papers Victor Viggiani revealed at the first Canadian National Inquiry into UFOs in Brantford, Ontario, Canada, was a confidential memo dated November 14 1968.
The Criminal Investigation Burea (CIB) F Division document was headlined “Re UFO found in Northern Saskatchewan”.
The document said on October 17 the same year, a Mr J Hodges regional representative, of the associate committee on meteorites of the National Research Council of Canada, had taken a “small metal fragment” which was found by an unnamed pilot to the Crime Detection Laboratory.
It said it was found in the Wollaston Lake area, 450 miles northeast of Prince Albert, near the Manitoba border. Continue reading Conclusive proof UFO crashed to Earth? Leaked memo on debris from ‘outer space vehicle’
Baffled astronomers made the announcement that deepened the mystery of the bright spots on the dwarf planet Ceres. They recently claimed that the famous spots blinked at intervals of around nine hours.
With the latest discovery, some UFO hunters suggested that it is a definitive evidence of the theory that bright spots on Ceres are artificial beacons transmitting coded signals. The signals would guide ET spaceships coming in to land at a base on the dwarf planet, the largest body being discovered in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter.
The unexpected fluctuations in the brightness of the mystery spots were observed in the spectrograph of High Accuracy Radial velocity Planet Searcher (HARPS) at ESO’s La Silla Observatory in Chile. The widely known spots, called faculae, can be found in an 80-kilometer crater Occator.
Some UFO enthusiasts speculate that it is a signal. It could be a warning signal, a radar tower, or a greeting signal. It must be there for a purpose, according to UFO researchers. Does humanity need to signal back? Continue reading Aliens Sending Out Signals From Ceres
