About

Welcome to THE GRALIEN REPORT, your source for the latest news in science, unexplained phenomena, history, sci-fi, and other compelling news from around the world. We attempt to explore the mysteries of our existence by relying on scientific knowledge, and without catering to unfair or cynical criticism.

GralienSiteMicah Hanks is a writer, researcher, podcaster, lecturer and radio personality whose work addresses a variety of areas, including history, politics, scientific theories and unexplained phenomena. Open minded, but skeptical in his approach, his research has examined a broad variety of subjects over the years, incorporating interest in scientific anomalies, cultural studies, psychology, sci-fi and pop culture, government secrecy, and the prospects of our technological future as a species as influenced by science.

Hanks is a blogger for Mysterious Universe, and has written for a variety of print publications including New Dawn and FATE, and has appeared on TV and radio programs that include Coast to Coast AM and Beyond Belief with George Noory, Whitley Strieber’s Dreamland, National Geographic’s Paranatural, History Channel’s Guts and BoltsCNN Radio, and many others.

New Gralien

And finally, the site wouldn’t be what it is today without our long-standing mascot, The Gralien himself. From a far off land known as Arcturi along the Gallifreyan nebula, the Gralien is the man thing behind the scenes, often falling asleep in closets, bathtubs, and other odd places throughout the bunker bearing his name. The Gralien possess his own rare form of brilliance, and in his spare time, often creates light-up Christmas ornaments with parts retrieved from old transistor televisions.
