Basically, SETI groups tend to quickly follow up on any hint of a signal from an alien civilization because, well, ALIENS!
Year-old notes that included a potential radio signal produced by aliens were leaked to the media last week, and they are causing scientists within the search for extraterrestrial intelligence or SETI community to race to confirm the signal blip.

Now we get to look back at the games as they unfolded for the unfortunate athletes who stumbled, fell, slipped, crashed or fouled in front of the world and those all-seeing, unforgiving cameras.

In the same Hell Creek Formation layer of rock in Montana where the famed paleontologist Barnum Brown discovered Tyrannosaurus rex in 1902, a team of Burke Museum paleontologists have discovered their very own T. rex.

In 2012, the citizens of Washington state and Colorado voted by large measures to go one step better than using marijuana for medical purposes. We voted to throw out the war on marijuana almost entirely. 'Nuff said.

We all want it to be an alien civilization building a megastructure around a sun to fuel its expansion throughout its neck of the galaxy. There, I've said it. And while actual scientists are putting aliens at the bottom of the list for what could be causing the strange behavior of "Tabby's star" or KIC 8462852, aliens just can't be kicked off that list.

If everything stays as it is: Humans keep pumping CO2 into the atmosphere and the seas rise six feet by 2100, AND no more houses or suburbs or cities are built on U.S. coastlines, then the housing market will only take a nearly trillion dollar hit.

The discovery is great science. But, let's be honest, it suggests a future that is either entirely impossible or so distant from our current era as to be utterly pointless to talk about.

There's not a lot left to say about Hempfest, possibly the world's largest "protestival" ... including saying "possibly," because we've not been to every marijuana festival in the world. But, brothers and sisters, it's big. More than 100,000 people on three linked major city parks big.

In what's becoming a tradition on the International Space Station since NASA astronaut Chris Hadfield achieved social media stardom in 2013, the latest photos taken by a space interloper of the Seattle region are spectacular.

The Drug Enforcement Administration is enduring perhaps the most pronounced round of criticism in its 43 year-history, after a widely discredited decision last week to keep treating marijuana as the most dangerous drug on the planet.

We all know the basics -- hotter summers, longer droughts and higher seas, for instance - but there are still some surprises showing up along the way to a hotter planet. These surprises are not "unknown" to everyone. In fact, many had been predicted.

Humans can't wait another four years before we start dealing with climate change and the economic opportunity that goes along with it. So, whoever becomes the next U.S. president -- Democrat or Republican -- has to take action and/or be held accountable. While things are likely to cool down as El Nino chills out this year and next, the world nevertheless and once again experienced record heat in June and record heat for the year so far.
