Most Earth Like Planet Ever Discovered; SETI finds "Mysterious Pulse of Light" in the Same Location.

In what may be considered another chapter in this quickly evolving story of Extra-Terrestrial discovery, scientist are now reporting that they’ve found a new planet, which is the most “earth-like” ever discovered.  And not only is it possible that the planet is inhabited…. those inhabitants may have already attempted to contact us.

Twenty light years away from Earth (relatively close in the big cosmic scheme of things) lies a red dwarf star called Gliese 581.  In April of last year, I reported on an Earth sized planet revolving around this star.  That article can be found here:  on writing stephen king quotes.   It was speculated at that time that the planet may harbor the possibility for life. This was one of 4 known planets circling Gliese 581, making it the most populous solar system known to science, aside from our own.

Just a few days ago, on September 28th,  a team of astronomers announced that it had found two more planets circling the star, bringing the total to six.  And what is most significant about this discovery, is that one of those 2 planets, 581g, sits at the precisely corrects distance from its sun, and is just the right size, to be extremely habitable for life.  Scientists say that is it quite possible that the planet could have vast oceans, which means that it could be teaming with life.

In fact, Steven Vogt, a UC professor of astronomy and astrophysics says, “The chances for life on this planet are 100 percent, I have almost no doubt about it.”

The following video explains the discovery in more detail:


Now, for those who have been keeping track, this has been quite a month for revealing information about the possibility of E.T.’s in our midst.

To recap, we had the admission by Stephen Hawking that there was likely intelligent life outside our planet, although he recommends that we don’t attempt contact… then the announcement that a group of former USAF officers were to reveal their accounts of UFO’s monitoring or perhaps tampering with our Nuclear weapons…. then there was the speculation that the UN was going to appoint a “First Contact Ambassador” (which they now deny)… the USAF officers held their news conference before the National Press Club, which made worldwide headlines (see full video of the conference here:

Next, we had the Vatican’s astronomer announcing wistfully that he’d love the opportunity to Baptize an alien…. NBC’s “The Event” is premieres, with a premise of E.T.’s visiting Earth.  In “The Event”, the Government is aware of the E.T. presence but withholds the info from us…. and now this announcement of the Earth Like planet with “100% Chance” of life.  Couldn’t get any weirder could it???

This is Extraordinary Intelligence, people.  Of course it could get weirder.

Dr Ragbir Bhathal, a scientist at the University of Western Sydney, says that in December of 2008, he picked up an odd signal, a pulse of light,  in the direction of Gliese 581, well before the public announcement that there were habitable planets in that region. Bhathal is a member of the Australian chapter of (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence), whose mission is to sweep the cosmos for any sign of intelligent life, generally in the form of light or sound/radio waves.

The Your Domain Name reports that Bhathal was very excited about the discovery, saying, “We found this very sharp signal, sort of a laser look alike thing which is the sort of thing we’re looking for – a very sharp spike. And that is what we found.

So that was the excitement about the whole thing.” So, what are we to make of all of this?  Is this seeming outpouring of E.T. information coincidental?  Is is possible that it is merely happenstance that all of these things are coming to light in the manner in which they are?  Or, is there something else?  Is it possible that we are being slowly led by the hand toward full Disclosure?  And if so, are we ready?
