Apollo 11’s lunar landing and specifically Neil Armstrong’s first steps on the Moon was, arguably, the biggest television event of the 20th century. Knowing the impact a live broadcast would have on the world, Deke Slayton went so far as to push NASA to include an erectable antenna on the LM so Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin wouldn't have to wait for a tracking station to come within range before stepping outside.

A possible ninth planet of immense size may have been discovered -- but is this planet proof of the Planet X mythology? A number of myths and conspiracy theories exist that a mysterious ninth planet lurks out in the shadows of our solar system and is responsible for hurtling asteroids toward Earth and causing past extinction events. This mysterious planet has been called by many names, from Planet X to Nibiru and more.
The universe is probably filled with habitable planets, so many scientists think it should be teeming with aliens. But life on other planets would likely be brief and become extinct very quickly, say astrobiologists from The Australian National University (ANU). In research aiming to understand how life might develop, the scientists realized new life would commonly die out due to runaway heating or cooling on their fledgling planets.

Known as KIC 8462852, or Tabby’s star, it has been baffling astronomers for the past few months after a team of researchers noticed its light seemed to be dipping in brightness in bizarre ways. Proposed explanations ranged from a cloud of comets to orbiting “alien megastructures”. Now an analysis of historical observations reveals the star has been gradually dimming for over a century, leaving everyone scratching their heads as to the cause.

In 1977, astronomer Jerry R. Ehman observed a data signal so unique he drew a red circle around it and wrote "Wow!" to emphasize the discovery. The source of the signal was never identified, leading some to say it was aliens. But a new study suggests it wasn't aliens at all-but rather a hydrogen cloud caused by comets.
