Caleb Hanks is a writer and musician who is passionate about the technological achievements that await us in the coming decades. Self described as “one of those battery’s half full kinda guys,” Caleb boasts a keen interest in technology, science, and especially the concept of an intelligence explosion in humanity’s future, leading to a sort of “event horizon” which science fiction writer and mathematician Vernor Vinge was first to refer to as “Singluarlity.” Caleb’s art and music have been featured in a variety of publications, websites, and other mediums, and his rock group, The Nova Echo, has featured futuristic themes and innovative concepts within the framework of driving, electronically-oriented rock music. After releasing their debut full-length album in October of 2009, and the five song “Voyager” EP in August of 2010, the band reentered the studio in the Spring of 2012 to craft another full-length offering expanding on the core characteristics the band portrays: hope, positivity, and the feelings of love, longing and companionship that a lonely space traveler might feel between the insurmountable distances within deep space. The band toured several times between 2009 and 2012, and now Caleb focuses most of his energies on art, layout, and design, as well as blogging about futurism, technological singularity, and artificial intelligence for The Gralien Report and Intrepid Magazine. Finally, Caleb’s original compositions are featured as theme music on the weekly Gralien Report Podcast, as well as on programs like Open Minds TV’s Spacing Out! with Jason McClelland and Maureen Elsberry. He can be reached via email here.

Chris Heyes is a skeptically-minded researcher of the unexplained, who received his degrees in Religious Studies and Anthropology from Appalachian State University, where he studied the ways myth and culture influence human perception in places throughout the world. His interests today also include media and, of course, how popular interest in subjects like UFOs, ghosts, and other strange phenomena often color people’s opinions and preconceptions about the nature of any valid underlying scientific principles. In addition to the study of the unexplained, Chris also enjoys photography, writing and reading short story fiction, and body art. He is often referred to by a variety of aliases, including “The Milkman,” as well as “Green Pill Junkie,” among others. He can be reached via email at gralien.producer@gmail.com.

New GralienAnd 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 is a brilliant talent, and manages to create light-up Christmas ornaments with parts taken from old transistor televisions.
