Life in the Galaxy

George Knapp welcomed DNA expert, Melba Ketchum, for the entire 4-hour program, for a discussion on her Bigfoot research, as well as her testing or planned testing of samples from four giant and elongated skulls, and other giant remains. She addressed some of the controversies surrounding her previous DNA analysis of alleged Bigfoot hair and related samples, which yielded strange results that suggested some kind of human hybrid or mutation.

Life in the Galaxy

Show Archive
Date: Thursday - February 5, 2009
Host: George Noory
Guests: Alan Boss, Joshua P. Warren

During the first three hours, astronomer Alan Boss discussed how mankind is at a turning point in its quest for discovering extraterrestrial life. There are 100 billion stars in our galaxy, and it's now believed that most of these have planets, many of which could be rocky like Earth. The rate of exoplanet detection is increasing, and with the upcoming launch of the Kepler Mission we'll find even more worlds, he said.

NASA's Kepler Mission is specifically designed to survey our region of the Milky Way and locate Earth-sized planets in or near the habitable zone. France's COROT space telescope has also been discovering extrasolar planets. Further down the road, NASA is planning a Terrestrial Planet Finder which could study the atmospheres and chemical makeup of new planets, Boss detailed.

One of the problems in finding intelligent life in the galaxy is the difficulty of matching a planet's time frame of development-- after all, humans have only been around for a brief period of Earth's long existence, he pointed out. In our solar system, the icy oceans of Jupiter's moon Europa might harbor life, and the recent findings of methane on Mars, suggest around a 50% chance of some form of life there, he said.

Spy Watch Mystery

Appearing during the last hour, paranormal investigator Joshua P. Warren talked about his recent trip to Washington DC, and how he came into a possession of an unusual Cold War-era spy watch. It's possible, he said, that wire recordings from the device may contain material related to the JFK assassination. He is currently seeking assistance in being able to play the recordings.
