SETI and the Fermi Paradox: Is ET out there?
By: D. Vogt
Two basic principles guide the Search for Extra-terrestrial Intelligence (SETI) and the debate about whether we are truly alone in the universe.

Being a Cosmological question as to how a body falls through Space, it is open to many bodies. What would seem like a falling star to us on earth, particles of broken off matter, from many Outer Space bodies, purely burn up having moved...
Travelling to other Stars
By: Keenen Charles
As humans we have gazed at the stars from our earliest times and wondered at what could possibly be out there. In the last century our journeys into space have progressed substantially with the Apollo missions and the construction of the International Space Station, humanity...
The formation of stars

By: D. Vogt
A Dyson Sphere is a theoretical mega-structure constructed to collect much or even all of the solar radiation produced by a star, extract energy via solar panels or some similar technology, and then radiate lower-energy infrared radiation out into space. It was first described by...

To the unaided human eye, the night sky appears dark because, from the perspective of an individual on the surface of the planet, "night" occurs when that part of the planet is facing away from the Sun. Our eyes evolved - or were designed, according...
Could there be life on other planets?
By: Slawomir Puk
Ever since man has been aware of worlds beyond our own, he has begun to wonder whether he is alone in the Universe. Do other races of creatures very different or perhaps quite similar to ourselves exist on distant planets? This desire to explore beyond...
By: D. Vogt
Assuming that the human race does not destroy itself through nuclear war, chemical pollution of the environment, global climate change, or a collapse of the food supply, the next likely natural threat to our species will probably come from outer space, in the form of...
