ALf Investigates.

Daily Mail Reporter

ALf will give some answers to the subject matter below as soon as he can. He is not too keen when it comes to water found spacecraft.

Water and seas do not exist on his home planet and when he goes to the coast with Lily and Old Fart he stays well away from it.

He is not scared of water he says that ” the things that live in the sea do not want us in there with them”.

He will look into the matter as soon as the Football games have finished as football is something ALf has embraced on Earth.

Alien Craft Found in The Baltic Sea?

Shipwreck surveyors found a remarkable object in the depths of theBaltic Sea, but before they start celebrating, they need to figure out what it is.

A Swedish company named Ocean Explorer have discovered an unidentified object using their sonar technology in a secret location in theBaltic Sea.

Because of a lack of funding and bad timing, they have not been able to pull a team together to see for themselves.

Unidentified treasure: Shipwreck divers are perplexed by the oddly-shaped object that they found at the bottom of theBaltic Sea

Their sonar pictures show that the object is a massive cylinder with a 60 metre diameter and a 400 metre-long tail.

A similar disk-shaped object was also found about 200 metres away.

The sonar picture of the unidentified object resembles the famed Star Wars ship the Millennium Falcon

At this point, the story behind the object is anyone’s guess.

‘We’ve heard lots of different kinds
of explanations, from George Lucas’s spaceship — the Millennium Falcon
to ‘it’s some kind of plug to the inner world,’ like it should be
hell down there or something,’ said Peter Lindberg, a diver on the team.

While the Ocean Explorer
team is understandably excited about their potentially earth-shattering
find, others are slightly more sceptical and are questioning the
accuracy of the sonar technology.

In the past, such technology has confused foreign objects with unusual- but natural- rock formations.

For now, Ocean Explorers have to wait to find out until chaotic water conditions calm down in order to allow a manned expedition to happen.

Additionally, they are looking for financial backers to help aid the cost of the discovery process, and are calling for interested investors on their website.

Part of the trouble they face, however, is that they have no way of telling what is inside the supposed cylinder- whether it is filled with gold and riches or simply aged sediment particles.

They’re hoping for the former, and history seems to be in their favour.

The Baltic Sea is a treasure trove for shipwreck hunters, as an estimated
100,000 objects are thought to line the cold sea’s floor.

The company have created a submarine that they hope will appeal to tourists
and wannabe shipwreck hunters who will pay to take a trip down to the
bottom of theBaltic Sea to see for themselves.

Second round of the  Tripe bunnyal with Tossers and Sir Oron in Birmingham.

The second Tripe Bunnyal held no real surprises for this round.

Tossers Tango man appeared not as friendly with Sir Oron and even separated at lunch time.

Once again old farts emotions got the better of him. And at one point was struck off the record.

Sir Oron continued to lie through his gritted teeth.

But the day was done and we did our best.

George’s Mug Shot!

Today is OLD FART’s and YUNG UN’s birthday

OLD FART is 6-0….hahahah.

The Milky Way is on a collision course with another galaxy, and the titanic impact will see the Sun flung from its current position into deep space, Nasa has reported.

Our galactic home will slam into Andromeda, our neighbouring galactic system, in about 4bn years time.

Nasa said it is likely that our Sun will be flung from its current home into a new location somewhere in one of the galaxies – but the Earth won’t be destroyed.

M31 is moving toward the Milky Way at about 250,000mph.

The dramatic news was made after painstaking research on data from the Nasa Hubble Space Telescope.

Astronomers measured the motion of Andromeda, also known as M31, which is currently 2.5m light years away but is spiralling towards the Milky Way.

“[The galaxy] is inexorably falling toward the Milky Way under the mutual pull of gravity between the two galaxies and the invisible dark matter that surrounds them both,” Nasa said.

Nasa’s scientists welcomed the news, and said it ended 100 years of speculation.

“After nearly a century of speculation about the future destiny of Andromeda and our Milky Way, we at last have a clear picture of how events will unfold over the coming billions of years,” said Roeland van der Marel of the Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI) inBaltimore.

According to Nasa it will be 2bn years after the galaxies hit before they completely merge and reform into a single, larger, galaxy.

While pictures of galaxies make them appear very tightly packed, in reality the space between stars is so vast they are extremely unlikely to collide with each other.

Instead, Nasa says, the stars will be thrown into different orbits around the new galactic center.

After the collision things get even more complicated, Nasa said – as yet another galaxy (the Triangulum galaxy, M33) will also join the party and slam into the merging pair.

A century ago astronomers did not know that Andromeda was a different galaxy to our own that M31 was a separate galaxy far beyond the stars of the Milky Way. Edwin Hubble measured its vast distance by uncovering a variable star that served as a “milepost marker”.

“In the worst-case-scenario simulation, M31 slams into the Milky Way head-on and the stars are all scattered into different orbits,” said Gurtina Besla ofColumbiaUniversityinNew York. “The stellar populations of both galaxies are jostled, and the Milky Way loses its flattened pancake shape with most of the stars on nearly circular orbits.

“The galaxies’ cores merge, and the stars settle into randomised orbits to create an elliptical-shaped galaxy.”
