Scientists Looking In Chili For Life On Mars....


Estación Yungay (Chile) (AFP) - Chile's Atacama desert may seem to contain little besides red-grey rocks and sand -- but scientists are busy searching here for clues to life in a place it much resembles: Mars. This desert in northern Chile, like the red planet, is hot, dusty and extremely dry. Yet life exists here: tiny algae and bacteria that have evolved to survive in the parched earth on little more than sunlight. If they have done it here, then why not on Mars, 225 million kilometers (140 million miles) away? "If life existed there, it would probably be very similar to life here," says biologist Cristina Dorador from the nearby University of Antofagasta. "We do not know if that is the case, because we do not have any evidence," she adds, as she breaks up bits of rock salt in an area of the desert known as Yungay Station. "But if we manage to understand how these micro-organisms live, how they obtain moisture and how they adapt to these conditions, then probably very soon, when we have more information about life forms on other planets, we will have something here on Earth to compare it with."

SMOKE OF SATAN ON BOARD! Smell of Sulfur In Cockpit Forces Spirit Airlines Flight To Land!

Jet lands in Fort Lauderdale as pilots smell ‘unidentifiable odor’ in the cockpit
As a Spirit Airlines flight from Guatemala City landed in Fort Lauderdale Monday afternoon, the pilot reported an “unidentifiable odor” in the plane’s cockpit, officials said.  Despite media reports of smoke on board, Spirit spokesman Paul Berry said “it was just an odor.”  “No smoke was ever seen,” he said. “Everybody was fine.”  There were 148 passengers aboard Flight 244, which landed at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport at its scheduled time of 4:30 p.m. No one was injured, Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport spokesman Greg Meyer said.

Space Fantasy #33: Jeff Bezos' Vision: 'A Trillion Humans In The Solar System'!

Jeff Bezos' Vision: 'A Trillion Humans in the Solar System'  Bezos said the Apollo program was inspirational, helping to fuel his desire and passion to make a difference in space exploration.

"I have won this lottery," Bezos said. "It's a gigantic lottery, and it's called Amazon.com. And I'm using my lottery winnings to push us a little further into space."

Bezos said he is not in the camp of the "Plan B argument" for the colonization of space — that one day Earth is going to be destroyed or uninhabitable, so we better have another place to live.

"I hate that idea … I find it very unmotivating," Bezos said. "We have sent robotic probes now to every planet in this solar system, and believe me, this [Earth] is the best one."

While we should and will colonize space (via the harnessing of solar energy and asteroid resources), Bezos said, there's also a need to avoid stagnation here on Earth by putting control…

Nice Airport: easyJet Employee Punches Complaining Passenger In The Face!

Nice Airport, an employee punches a passenger holding a baby in the face for complaining about easyJet flight delay  The event took place at the end of a day of stress for more than 150 passengers.
