In Podcast #25 of In Ice Axe We Trust, Chris and Matt discuss the main route up Telescope Peak, the highest mountain in California's Death Valley. While there are multiple routes to the top of Telescope Peak, this podcast focuses on the "standard" route - as well as some other strange spots to explore nearby in Death Valley - with the help of a veteran California hiker.
It's been called the "most unique mountaineering route in the world" and also one of the "toughest mountaineering routes in the lower 48 U.S. states" and it's no wonder - this route gains more than 11,300 feet over about 15 miles. The route starts at Shorty's Well (elevation: 262 ft. below sea level) and culminates at the summit of Telescope Peak (elevation: 11,049 ft.), which also happens to be the highest point in Death Valley. In this episode of IIAWT, Chris and Matt spend an hour talking about a recent expedition in which they attempted this very route.

How would humans react to an alien race arriving on Earth? What would be the impact of human contact with aliens? With 74% of Americans believing in the existence of aliens and 15 million believing they've actually made contact with extraterrestrials, many people have burning questions about life beyond Earth and its impact on humans.
Season three of ALIEN ENCOUNTERS -- airing Tuesdays at 10 PM ET/PT on Science Channel -- continues to raise hypothetical questions about, and explore the potential impact of, alien contact with humans.
Interspersed with dramatizations, ALIEN ENCOUNTERS employs world-class astronomers, futurists and scientists providing expertise and context to the potential cultural, biological, and technological impact of extraterrestrial contact, including Hakeem Oluseyi, astrophysicist and star of Science Channel's OUTRAGEOUS ACTS OF SCIENCE.
Dr. Hakeem Oluseyi is an internationally known astrophysicist, educator, inventor, and TV personality. In addition to being a professor and leading space sciences researcher at the Florida Institute of Technology, he is a frequent contributor to the Science Channel and National Geographic Channel, outlets for his passion for communicating science to the public.
After earning his Ph.D. in physics from Stanford University, Hakeem conducted research on manufacturing computer chips at one of Silicon Valley's most successful companies, earning 8 U.S. patents. He has also worked on the development of instrumentation for space-based astronomical observation, including optics, detectors, and electronics. He is a member of the development team for the high priority Large Synoptic Survey Telescope.
The Lucifer Telescope: Owned and operated by Vatican astronomers, the Lucifer Telescope (also know as the Large Binocular Telescope or LBT) is located on Mt. Graham in Arizona. The Lucifer device is an Infrared detector, which was added to the LBT in order to obtain images from outer space, which are superior to those obtainable by the Hubbell Telescope. They are looking for extraterrestrial life forms, which they claim will be the saviors of mankind.
The Miracle of Fatima: Also know as the "Miracle of the Sun", Oct. 13, 1917 between 30,000 to 100,000 people witnessed "extraordinary solar activity". In an event lasting about ten minutes, three children reported seeing a paranormal vision including Jesus, Our Lady of Sorrows, Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, and St. Joseph blessing the people. The large group of people gathered at this location in a field because three young shepherd children had predicted that at high noon the "lady" who had appeared to them several times, would perform a great miracle in a filed near Fatima called Cova de Iria. The object referred to as "The Sun" was actually an opaque disc with multi-colored lights careening toward earth in a zigzag pattern, and frightening the people. Witnesses reported that their previously wet clothes had become dry, and the previously muddy ground had become dry as well.
The Book of Enoch: Is an ancient Jewish religious work ascribed to Enoch, a prophet. This book describes in detail the events outlined briefly in Genesis of the Bible whereby Fallen Angels (Sons of God) took human females (Daughters of men) and procreated with them to create the giants of the day, which terrorized the earth and hence God created the flood to destroy these "Nephilim" creatures, and God bound 90% of the fallen angels in Hell until the days of tribulation, when they will be released.
On Thursday June 12th, 2014 the Hermetic Hour with host Poke Runyon will
present a discussion on ancient and modern Multiverse concepts in relation to Hermetic Magick, the Qabalah, astrology and Fortean phenomenon. We will examine philosophical. scientific, literary and cinematic models of the Multiverse, sometimes called the "Holographic Universe" or "Parallel Worlds." We will trace the idea through the "nesting spheres" of the geocentric age, to the heliocentric
Renaissance, the invention of the telescope and the discovery of other galaxies and anti-matter, both in terms of science and the pages of science fiction. Our references will be Mary-Jane Ruberstein's "Worlds Without End," Michio Kaku's "Parallel Worlds," the science fiction of Phillip K. Dick, and Richard S. Shaver, and films such as "The Matrix," "Dark City," and "Lost Highway." Our challenge will be to reconcile ancient Hermetic philosophy with the Multiverse concept --- so, if you want to go through the looking glass or down the rabbit hole, tune in a
we will tour the endless "nows" of the Simultane.
Join the lively discussion with Dr Jewell and Amanda Aubry, member of MarsWithout Borders, MWOB, an international group of scientists,physicians and creative artists, working together to develop the capabilities and technology for humans to live , work and thrive in space with the mission goal set for future colonization of off-world planets such as Mars Moon and Asteroids.
Amanda will talk about her interests, experiences and ideas in areas of astronomy and its relation to the vast Universe. She is a proactive advocate for STEM education and involved in various activities to increase public awareness and interest for space exploration.Her research interests is to develop ideas, such as, the Mars Astronomical Clock, Mars Telescope and Mars Calender.

Dr. Elena Sabbi's inspiration for accessible astronomy books occured after she hired a visually impaired intern. Dr. Sabbi works at the Space Telescope Science Institute. Her new book Reach for the Stars is a free e-book is designed to be accessible for people with visual and reading impairments. She describes the book as well as her fascinating work researching star formation in the Tarantula Nebula in the Large Magellenic Cloud.
After that, we talk with David Gaynes, the director and producer of the film, Saving Hubble. This remarkable film gives us insight into how the telescope has changed how we think about science and our place in the universe.
The Arecibo Radio Telescope broadcast a signal into space on November 16, 1974. The transmission can be arranged into a diagram showing, among other things, a human stick figure, the solar system, the telescope itself and the DNA molecule. In August of 2001 a crop circle appeared close to the Chilbolton radio telescope in Hampshire, England. It was quickly named "The Arecibo reply", as it seemed to be exactly that; a reply to the Arecibo message, describing a different alien race. Despite years of attempts of debunking, there is no firm evidence that it was a hoax. Bring your cards and read along as we look at one of the most interesting of unsolved mysteries.

His articles and science papers have been published in Nature, Seed, Sky & Telescope, New Scientist and he is a regular contributor to The Cosmic Variance blog.
Everything in the universe dies. The question is, what comes out of their deaths? Dr. Sean Carroll will explore how and why things die, what the meaning of death is in the universe and how it gives living things new hope.
Dr. Carroll is a senior research associate in the Department of Physics at Caltech. He received his Ph.D. in astronomy and astrophysics in 1993 from Harvard. He worked as a postdoctoral researcher at MIT and Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics at the University of California and as an assistant professor at the University of Chicago in 2006.
Please join Dr. Sean Carroll, Melissa and me Monday, May 12, 2014 at 8 pm EDT for an intense discussion of How Everything in the Universe Dies.
It is now 44 years since I saw the object in May 1970. 44 years before that May 1926 the object "obscured the moon's disc." Now today May11, 2014 it is once again three nights before the month of May's full moon.Sounds simple enough however I am unable to say if this attempt, this guess will be right and we really will see the ancient object return home. Early not late evening, just a little while after dark.
Follow the timing and the order of events as I describe here: The Return Viewer's Guide
Stay looking, don't look away. If you can do this you will see. Don't look away and you will have a chance to go face to face with an all important ultimate ancient human sight that is light. Now stay looking and you will realize that you are really seeing in the ancient way as you experience more as the intensity escalates. To the right over and past the ancient object's upper right horizon you are looking at the moon's changed light after it was sculpted and shaped by the point of a shadow that was cast by a massive vertically standing crater rim piece.
This is a fantastic thing that happens and you can see this as well. That's a huge part of the point and I hope helps to explain and helps people to understand the answer to the question, what's the Return Viewer's Guide about?
