Silent Running: 'Black Triangle' Sightings on the Rise -  The study points out: “The United States is currently experiencing a wave of Flying Triangle sightings that may have intensified in the 1990s, especially towards the latter part of the 1990s. The wave continues. The Flying Triangles are being openly deployed over and near population centers, including in the vicinity of major Interstate Highways. Neither the agenda nor the origin of the Flying Triangles are currently known.”
India Plans To Build Long-Range Missiles With Israel: Official - SpaceDaily  Left:  Those National Day Parades sure bring in the customers.  India is holding talks with Israel about joint production of a long-range missile, the country's chief military scientist announced on Tuesday. "Wherever they have strengths, we want to jointly develop the missiles so that both countries can benefit and share designs, costs and risks," V.K. Atre told reporters in Hyderabad, the hub of India's missile-building facilities. Atre denied that Israel was already helping India to build guided missiles and said defence cooperation was confined to research and the development of sensors and fibre-optic gyroscopes for the military. India successfully tested its medium-range Agni-II (Fire) missile, which has a maximum range of 2,500 kilometres (1,560 miles) and can carry a one-tonne nuclear warhead. 

Europe's first lunar probe is due to orbit the Moon in November

Noah's Ark plan for Moon - ABC  LeftEurope's first lunar probe is due to orbit the Moon in November.  The European Space Agency's chief scientist has said there should be a "Noah's Ark" on the Moon, in case life on Earth is wiped out by an asteroid or nuclear holocaust. Speaking exclusively to BBC News at the British Association Festival of Science, Dr Bernard Foing said the ark should be a repository for the DNA of every single species of plant and animal. If there were a catastrophic collision on Earth or a nuclear war, you could place some samples of Earth's biosphere, including humans, [on the Moon]," he said.
