habitable worlds, created by Planetary Habitability Laboratory (PHL)

Scientists are finding more and more exoplanets, which my dad told me about for years before he disappeared. He was a leading scientist in the field. He was convinced there is intelligent life on these planets that is not so much different from life on Earth. Those of you I've talked with personally know what I mean.

So I've been keeping up with the latest news. Scientists have found so many that now they think there's a one in ten chance of finding at least one planet in the habitable zone of every star in our galaxy.

Recently scientists discovered five exoplanets orbiting Tau Ceti, one of the stars nearest to us. Two of them are in the habitable zone.

One of my favorite sites for exoplanets is

Here's an article with more information abut Tau Ceti:

I have a .pdf of the scientific paper describing this discovery if anyone wants it. Just let me know.

PS-Maybe that's where my dad is?

First UFO sighting

I didn't realize the first UFO sighting was in ancient China. According to Time Magazine:

The earliest UFO sightings in recorded history can be found in 4th century Chinese texts claiming that a "moon boat" hovered above China every 12 years.

Multigenerational Extraterrestrial Abductions

Here's another guy, Thomas Reed, who explains alien abduction in his family. I'm not so hot on the illustrations, but the point is, a lot of people have been abducted before.

“I feel like we’ve put out enough information to convict somebody in a courtroom,” Reed says. “I believe it’s hard for a thinking person to sit down and really look at all the evidence and not come to the conclusion that something extraordinary is going on.”

In June of 1954, Thomas Reed’s mother, the former Nancy Burrows, then a 15-year-old schoolgirl, drove from her home in Westport, Conn., to a rental cabin near Moosehead Lake in Maine with her mother, her older brother Robert, and his girlfriend, Kip, for a weekend of relaxation at the end of another school year. Nancy would recall later that the second night she was there, after she had gone to bed, she was awakened by what sounded like a closing door.
“She went to move, and she felt as if she were inside a mannequin,” Thomas recounts. “She felt frozen, but her hands and feet were able to move. She was grabbing what she could to pull herself off the bed.”
She remained in that state for hours, Reed says, and remembered seeing strange images—including a series of figures coming from the end of her bed. She remained awake until morning when, as quickly as the feeling of motionlessness had overtaken her, the room was engulfed in light. Everything suddenly seemed normal again.
At breakfast, Kip, who slept in another room, described a nearly identical experience. Neither girl would reenter the cabin that evening, preferring to sleep on the porch despite a precipitous drop in temperature as the skies darkened.
Thomas remembers it was a cool night in September the first night it happened. It was early, only 9 p.m., but both boys were already in bed, though still wide awake in their bunks, listening to the lapping of the little brook in back of their home through an open window.Some 12 years later, the adult Nancy Burrows found herself raising quarter horses on a farm in rural Massachusetts. She was also raising two sons as a single mother: 6-year-old Thomas and 4-year-old Matt.
And yet something was off.
“You could feel it on your skin,” Thomas says. “It was a weird feeling; it kind of created its own anxiety, like something is wrong and you feel it.”

I picked this background for my blog because I know it drives the Nats crazy.

Life in Space

I read today that astronomers think there are billions of "potentially habitable planets" in our own galaxy, the Milky Way. I don't know if this is good news or bad. It means there are plenty of places my Dad might be alive.

But it also means there's far too many places to search.

Here's the link:

It kind of makes me ill thinking he could be on any one of those dots (or anywhere in between if he's in a spaceship). But it's also nice to look at the sky and know there are billions of places where things are alive.
