Astronomers Are Just As Crazy As UFO Spotters... Maybe More So The UFO Iconoclast(s)
Looking heavenward on cold nights can make people see things. Such is the sordid tale of John Herschel's astounding observations of the moon, and R.J. Trumpler's visions of martian canals. With these fanciful sightings, it's nice to know there are those bucking the mainstream. For example, there's Majorana's Mysterious Disappearance in 1938. Some suggest suicide, others believe Ettore escaped Italy. Dr. Beachcombing dares to collapse the wave function, believing this maverick put himself into quantum superposition based upon a cryptic clue. Next up, Scott McMan profilesDavid Adair - Amazing American Or Beguiling Blowhard? Dave's thwarted World War III, invented a fusion rocket engine, and Area 51, if he's to be believed. Judge for yourself as David gives his side of the story in a 41 minute video. Certainly plausible, if not true. Hot on the heels of a paper showing how to test if our universe is a simulation, Henry Paterson's mind is blown as he muses how Ghosts, Bigfoot, UFOs, Are All Real... IF... we are a simulation. Mixing mysticism with his maverick science, Henry lays out the deeper implications of the simulation argument.
