Elsewhere on the outer space/robot/science beat:
Denver voters get to decide whether to create a Extraterrestrial Affairs Commission--and the campaign includes a new film of a space alien!
The Rocky Mountain News reports:
A video that purportedly shows a living, breathing space alien will be shown to the news media Friday in Denver.
Jeff Peckman, who is pushing a ballot initiative to create an Extraterrestrial Affairs Commission in Denver to prepare the city for close encounters of the alien kind, said the video is authentic and convinced him that aliens exist.
"As impressive as it is, it's still one tiny portion in the context of a vast amount of peripheral evidence," he said Wednesday. "It's really the final visual confirmation of what you already know to be true having seen all the other evidence."
Meanwhile, scientists have managed to get monkeys to work robots with the power of their minds. Is the enslavement of all mankind at hand?
