The Science of Chasing UFOs: “Alien Baby Farm”

  “UFOs” and Natural Phenomena Mexican culture, like what we encountered in Brazil during last week’s episode, seems to me to harbor a significantly different view on the possibility of life beyond Earth and sojourns of such life to our world than is commonly held in the United States.  In fact, UFOs are frequently associated…

Chasing UFOs: Alien Baby Farm

Unexplained UFO phenomena are caught on video every day, but it is rare for two strangers to record the same object at the same time from two separate angles.

The Science of Chasing UFOs: “Alien Castaways”

The Science of Chasing UFOs: “Game of Drones”

The Drake Equation versus the Fermi Paradox When considering the possibility of life elsewhere in the galaxy and the proposition that such life has delivered some kind of surveillance spacecraft to our own world, (as many we interviewed proposed or endorsed in this episode), it is important to review the current “state of the union”…

Chasing UFOs: Game of Drones

What if we’re not only being visited by UFOs, but we’re also being watched? That’s the theory among some in Florida who say sightings of small glowing orbs are proof that alien drones are here keeping tabs on planet Earth. To verify these claims, Ryder, Ben and James travel to the Sunshine State to look…

This week’s sighting comes to us from Stewart Bluco, who shared this video of his sighting. Stewart writes, “I was testing my camcorder. I wanted to see how well it could zoom in on a high flying jet. I set out a lawn chair, and watched the sky until I could find a plane. The…

The Science of Chasing UFOs: “Abducted in Arizona”

Considering the amount of ground covered in each 1-hour Chasing UFOs episode, it isn’t always possible to present the science of each investigation in a comprehensive way.  So, for those who wish to learn more about the science behind Chasing UFOs, read on!   “Cum Hoc Ergo Propter Hoc,” or the Correlation Fallacy “With this,…
