News From the Future #01

Through our direct line of interdimensional communication with the future,  every Wednesday we bring you three stories of random and unrelated news events that haven’t happened yet.  Here are this week’s stories:

 

1. March 20th, 2091 – Donald Trump Eyeing Lunar Presidency

Trillionaire and former US President Donald Trump hinted at the possibility of running for President of the Moon in the upcoming 2092 election. Although no official announcement has been made, rumors say that the 145-year-old has not kicked the taste for political leadership since he ran the People’s Republic of the United States of America of China in the 2070s. Most political strategists think this to be a premature move, however, as the Moon has yet to be declared its own nation. Trump believes that if this were to happen in his lifetime, his experience running nearly twelve businesses on the Moon, including three casinos, is enough for him to be declared a Lunar citizen, or a “Loony.”

 

2. April 1st, 2087 – Oil Discovered on Mars

This morning, the Indian Space Research Organization discovered naturally occurring petroleum deep beneath the surface of Mars while drilling to record the planet’s subterranean crust composition in the Cydonia region. The news came as a shock to the scientific community since petroleum is formed when decaying organic material is subjected to immense heat and pressure over hundreds of millions of years. This is the first real piece of evidence to suggest that life once existed on Mars at some point and in a large quantity. The ISRO has decided to put its efforts into studying the Cydonia region and invites all other space and extraterrestrial programs to join in.

 

3. April 2nd, 2087 – US Troops to Invade Mars,  Spread Democracy

The United States announced today that it will be sending troops to Mars in an effort to spread democracy. The Press Secretary said in a press release this morning that the barren, lifeless rock of a planet “lacks any real governing body and evidence suggests it’s harboring a slew of terrorist groups, especially the one that just did that attack.” The Press Secretary then revealed in a Reddit AMA that the focus of the incursion will be Mars’ Cydonia region.

Former NASA Analyst Claims to Have Seen Intelligent Life on Earth

Deb Burns, a retired geologist and extraterrestrial topography expert, has come forward with claims that she observed intelligent life on the planet Earth during her time working with NASA in the 1970s. Burns claims she witnessed these intelligent beings using their vastly superior knowledge to put other beings on the Moon, as well as use advanced technological devices to probe other regions of the solar system.

“I know it sounds insane,” said Burns, “but I know what I saw. There were teams of men and women using their minds to discover, explore and learn about the world around them. And all of this was happening on Earth.”

Burns says she saw this intelligence a number of times while studying photographs of Mars sent back from the Mariner 9 space probe, as well as images of Venus sent back from Mariner 10.

Other scientists have come forward with similar claims that seem to verify Burns’ statements. According to Hank Buckman, a physicist who helped design some of NASA’s probes, there was an “organization of intelligent minds” existing on Earth as late as the 1990s, which he says he witnessed despite having never worked directly with Burns.

NASA hasn’t yet commented on the matter and the US government has refused to release photos of Earth that might verify the claims. Conspiracy theorists across the nation, however, have become fascinated with the idea.

“Well yeah, of course there’s intelligent life on Earth,” says author and conspiracy theorist Woody Fairbrother who has written books about beings from Earth landing on the Moon. “I’m not sure what happened to it but I know for certain it was there.”

Earth’s apparent lack of intelligence now is an obstacle that many conspiracy theorists like Fairbrother struggle with, but Fairbrother and Burns herself haven’t lost hope.

“Maybe someday it’ll resurface,” Burns said. “I hope it does. Earth is facing a lot of global crises right now and the intervention of intelligent beings would go a long way.”

The 13 Weirdest Things About Our Solar System

One star and nine planets may seem like the typical cluster of objects that make up a solar system, but nothing in the cosmos is without its strangeness. Here is a list of some of the more recognizable objects in the night sky with some of the facts that make them unique.

 

Sun – A massive ball of ionized gas that took our planet’s place as the center of our solar system in 1543.

Mercury – The closest planet to the Sun. As its name suggests, Mercury is primarily made up of poisonous, liquid metal.

Venus – By far the hottest planet in our solar system, Venus gets hit on more frequently than any other celestial body.

Earth – The only planet that still has religions.

Moon – The Earth’s natural satellite. To this day scientists have no idea how it got there, though the most widely accepted theory is werewolves.

Mars – Mars is a shy planet, often embarrassed by its red bumpy surface. It’s tried everything from Proactive to alcohol wipes but nothing seems to do the trick.

Asteroid Belt – Located between Mars and Jupiter, the odds of successful navigating it are 3,720 to 1.

Jupiter – The largest planet in our solar system. It has a “Great Red Spot” where some wine spilled about 600 million years ago.

Galilean Moons – Four planet-sized moons that orbit Jupiter, each possessing unique geological properties. Their names are Groucho, Harpo, Chico and Zeppo.

Saturn – Also known as the “Mob Wife” planet for its extravagant and unnecessary rings, Saturn makes one revolution around the Sun every Saturday.

Uranus – Uranus has 27 moons.

Neptune – Either the seventh or eighth planet, Neptune spends as much time in space as it does in the ocean.

Pluto – Planet when it needs to be, player when it wants to be.
