This week on The Gralien Report, a village in northeastern America has been experiencing hundreds of unexplained earthquakes since 2016, with nearly 20 having occurred within just the last month. Elsewhere, Frank Bunger of the new Aurora Space Hotel wants to make space “accessible to everyone”…. for a mere $9.5 million dollars. Also, a group of psychologists are now saying that SETI may have faulty methods of contacting alien life… and if so, what does that mean for us here on Earth?
Meanwhile, after tossing water on the latest Nibiru “Doomsday” conspiracy theories, the Gralien Gang turns their attention to a fascinating paper that involves what is called “The Silurian Hypothesis,” which discusses whether we would be able to find evidence of an advanced civilization if one had existed on Earth millions of years ago. While the article, discussed in The Atlantic, doesn’t actually suggest there is evidence for such civilizations before our own, it does have us thinking about the future potentials for life here on Earth.
Then finally, we remember the late great icon of nighttime talk radio Art Bell, who passed away last week on Friday the 13th. Apart from being a most fitting day for his departure from this mortal realm, we recall a number of Art’s most celebrated segments from over the years, and examine the “trickster” role that he often relished playing (which many of his more serious-minded critics over the years seemed to have overlooked). Altogether, Bell was more than just a radio host… he was a an entertainer extraordinaire, and we remember him fondly on this special edition of The Gralien Report.
