Planet 9 (not Plan 9 from Outer Space)

The CBS 60 Minutes hour Sunday, January 8, 2017, noted in my posting below, had a segment on the search for the 9th planet in our Solar System, a huge planet (supposedly) that would replace dwarf planet Pluto in the pantheon of planets astronomers find interesting.

I hope that UFO buffs stay tuned to information coming forth about the "new" planet and its importance, perhaps, to the UFO topic, meaning that Alien Astronaut theorists should be prevented from kidnapping the planet to further their extraterrestrial hypotheses, derailed now that Zecharia Sitchin's 12th Planet tale is pretty much dismissed by sane, sensible ufologists (if there are such people).


60 Minutes and Artificial Intelligent Drones

I hope some of you, here in the States, saw CBS' 60 Minutes segment Sunday night [1/8/17] that provided an in-depth look at MIT's creation of AI drones for the U.S. military.

The clips above show the drones surrounding military aircraft, without human intervention, and a clip of the drones in the air that mock the 1952 Newhouse/Tremonton , Utah "things' filmed by Warrart Officer Newhouse.

Now I'm not implying that Newhouse filmed U.S. drones but I am implying that maybe Newhouse filmed drones from "elsewhere" that intruded upon American airspace, and have for many years, even doing so now.

The other point I'm making is that the U.S. military admits that its drones have the ability to kill humans without human direction: the drones make the decision to kill on their own using AI algorithms. And those algorithms are already in place.

The "warnings" about AI, offered by various tech and scientific gurus [Elon Musk, Ray Kurzweil. Stephen Hawking, Bill Gates, Nick Bostrom, et al.], seem particularly prescient.
