Extraterrestrial life on other planets

Have you ever imagined if there is intelligent life out there? Have you gazed up at the variable stars and imagined beings like ourselves traveling through the endless limits of space? All of us, at some point, have considered the idea of extraterrestrial life; whether lying out beneath the stars on a warm night, looking out at the Milky Way or discussing the latest science fiction flick with a gathering of friends. As we ponder the possibilities of conscious life elsewhere in the universe, some questions come to thought: Does the human race lead a solitary survival among the stars, floating alone through space on our giant blue-green ball?

Are there asteroids elsewhere in the universe which possess the conditions for life to have arisen as it did here? The core for the study of life in the universe is governed by Dr. Frank Drake, who is recognized with having conducted the first-ever radio search for extraterrestrial intelligence in 1960. Although scientists agree with the formula of The Drake Equation itself, which, in theory, does foretell the number of improvements within the Milky Way capable of interstellar information, we do not currently possess all of the parameters to make an accurate approximation. The most we can do is make a guess. For instance, although scientists have detected over a hundred planets outside of our solar system, these planets have all been larger than Jupiter as it is tough to detect Earth-sized planets capable of sustaining life. New advances in technology are making it possible to discover smaller planets. However, we lack vital information to calculate the equation.

As the S.E.T.I. Institute remains to monitor the heavens in search of intelligent communications from another world, and we hope to one day find the responses to our questions about extraterrestrial life. Although we may continue to listen, yet never discover anything, if we don't listen we'll never know. As the research for life on other planets advances, the mystery prevails.

The Legend of the Kraken

The Kraken is one of those mythical beasts that we all know and can see in our minds, yet rarely ever understand the origins of. Generally passed down nowadays through word of mouth or references in modern films and literature, the Kraken simply exists for most people. The Kraken has become an idea as fundamental as the ocean itself. Many will be shocked to find out that the origin of this great beast is from actual accounts that were meant to be taken as factual, stemming from Scandinavian history and folklore. The preponderance of the Kraken as a myth stems from the actual terror of going out at sea and finding a monster the size of which your mind cannot even comprehend. This idea has a primal attraction to us, as we are all scared of the unknown. We are often terrified of the thought of what great mysteries may lie beneath the ocean.


The myth and legend of the Kraken were passed down by both written and spoken words through Scandinavian historians and fishermen. It is said to be…

History Of Day Of The Dead

In some countries, there is a very particular culture that celebrates a day to honor those who have left. The Day of the Dead, known in Spanish as Día de Muertos, is a celebration of Mexican origin in which families gather in cemeteries to show respect for their loved ones.

It goes back to ancient traditions about 3,000 years ago, where rituals were performed to celebrate the death of the people of those civilizations.

By the end of the 20th century, the Mexican inhabitants had already begun to celebrate this day in the country. It is a two-day holiday, November 1 (to honor children and babies) and November 2 (to honor adults). People who celebrate this day believe that a bridge is opened between the world of the living and the spiritual world so that the deceased can cross it and visit their living relatives.



Mexico is the country that mostly celebrates this day, but there are others such as Peru, Honduras, Nicaragua, Ecuador, Colombia, El Salvador, and Venezuela.

Usually, families…
