The last of the 4,450 panels that make up the telescope’s reflector, which is some 30 football fields in size, was hoisted into position Sunday morning, according to a press release from the Chinese Academy of Sciences.
“As the world’s largest single aperture telescope located at an extremely radio-quiet site, its scientific impact on astronomy will be extraordinary, and it will certainlyrevolutionize other areas of the natural sciences,” Nan Rendong, the project’s chief scientist, told China’s state-owned Xinhua News Agency.
NASA’s Mars Rover has shot some very interesting things on the Red planet’s surface. Those who follow its findings have woken up at one particular screen of footage. The shot seems to show what could be the skull of a dinosaur.
Mirror UK notes that the footage was shared online by Marie via her YouTube Chanel. She says, “This artifact is definitely a creature’s skull, possibly dinosaur or an equus feru species.” That is, either a dinosaur or a wild horse. She also goes on to share that she has not added anything to the footage she shared, other than colorization. The publication then goes on to say that Marie took the raw image from the Mastcam on NASA’s Curiosity rover.
Indeed, the image does appear to be a skull of some sort. Marie even shares that “I have pointed out areas like the mandible and maxilla as well as six other points of reference; this proves it’s not a weird-shaped rock.”The mandible and maxilla are bones found within the skull, particularly in the jaw area.

According to statement from a man who claims he worked as a consultant for NASA and the NSA, Alien beings are here, on Earth, the moon and our solar system. The story of Dr Norton is very interesting but hard to believe since little to no evidence has been provided by him, except an interesting story that skeptics will debunk immediately.
Dr. Eric Norton, who has worked for over 10 years as an outside consultant for both NASA and the National Security Agency watching the skies for threats such as asteroids or comets claims that in 2012, he saw a massive fleet of extraterrestrial spaceship hiding behind Earth’s natural satellite.
Ladies and gentlemen, it seems that Jupiter is roaring. NASA’s Juno spacecraft recorded the ‘alien’ sounds as the spacecraft was making its way through the boundary of Jupiter’s magnetic field on June 24.
Just before the Juno spacecraft fired up its rocket to decelerate and enter Jupiter’s orbit smoothly, the spacecraft started hearing mysterious sounds coming from the Gas Giant.
‘Hopituh Shi-nu-mu’ is the name that one of the Native American tribes is called and means “peaceful people.” The history of the ancient Hopi goes back thousands of years and makes them one of the oldest cultures in the world.
Unlike other mythologies of different cultures which speak of gods that descended from the heavens, in the ancient legends of the Hopi, a different story is told, speaking of mighty gods who reside in the center of the Earth.
But who were they? In a similar way, nearly all pre-Columbian cultures just like the Hopi believe that one day, not too far away, the gods who have shaped human culture will come back to Earth.
Peru is rapidly becoming the capital of the pyramid world. Not only does it have the oldest officially recorded pyramid in the world (Caral), with each archaeologist’s spade dig, more pyramid complexes are uncovered.
Near the city of Sipan is one of the major pyramid concentrations of Southern America: the pyramids of Tucume, known as “the Valley of the Pyramids”. The Lambayeque Valley is the largest valley of the North Coast of Peru, located between the Pacific Ocean and the Andes mountain range. It has no less than three pyramid cities, which together have a stunning total of 250 pyramids. The three cities were built in succession of each other, each abandoned before a new one was built.
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.
Another old mystery of ancient civilizations is unsolved in Death Valley, which may conceal an underground city that was described in Paihute Indian legend. The city apparently was first described 68 years ago, in Bourke Lee’s book, “Death Valley Men.”
In the book chapter: “Old Gold”, Bourke Lee describes a conversation which he had several years ago with a small group of Death Valley residents.
At one point two of the men, Jack and Bill, described their experience with an ‘underground city which they claimed to have discovered in 1931 after one of them had fallen through the bottom of an old mine shaft near Wingate Pass.
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.

Alien hunters have announced “discovery” of a six-inch doorway to the home of a Mars alien. The announcement comes soon after “discovery” of a six-inch alien on Mars believed to be of the same alien species as the famous Atacama Alien discovered on Earth in 2003.
The latest bizarre discovery was made in an old photo of rock-strewn Martian surface snapped by NASA’s Spirit rover deployed to the Red Planet in January 2004.
Spirit rover sent its last communication to Earth on March 22, 2010, after getting stuck in Martian soil.
