Billionaire Yuri Milner's Breakthrough Initiatives Eyes Private Mission to Seek Alien Life

Government agencies may not have a monopoly on life-hunting space missions for much longer.

Breakthrough Initiatives, which already scans the heavens for possible signals from faraway alien civilizations, is considering looking for E.T. on worlds close to home, founder Yuri Milner said.

"We are thinking very seriously about solar system-based initiatives," Milner said here Sunday (Nov. 4) at the seventh annual Breakthrough Prize ceremony at NASA's Ames Research Center. "We're thinking, within our foundation, is there something we can do, privately funded, which will supplement the government-funded projects?"

The reverse Pinocchio effect: Your nose actually SHRINKS when you lie because its temperature drops

Scientists showed the temperature of your nose lowers when you tell a lie

•This causes it to shrink - though the change is imperceptible to the human eye
•The team designed a lie detector test that tracks the temperature of your face
•It picked out fibbers with an accuracy rate of 80 per cent

In China’s New Space Odyssey, 80 Startups Race to Get Into Orbit

Space is corporate China’s newest frontier, as Chinese startups prepare to boldly go head-to-head with the likes of Elon Musk’s SpaceX and Jeff Bezos’s Blue Origin LLC for a slice of the space market.

It is still a risky business that must overcome complex technical challenges, as a high-profile rocket-launch failure over northwest China showed in late October. But with about 80 commercial Chinese space-technology startups now operating and competition heating up, the breakthroughs are likely to soon outnumber the disappointments, analysts say.

Separately, sources told CNBC that Amazon and local officials had a "very productive" and "very long" conference call on Friday. A potential incentive package may include a "very generous" transportation incentive to alleviate traffic fears, as well as educational aspects to ensure Amazon has a pipeline to a skilled workforce.

I hope that "transportation incentive" doesn't include Metro (our subway), which can't handle the current load, even though that load has been declining.

These sources told CNBC that a final decision is "close" and may come down to Northern Virginia or Austin, Texas — or perhaps a split between both cities.

Go away Amazon. Pick Austin.

Bezos Backlash Begins: Socialist Democrats Decry Amazon HQ2 "Burden" On NYC

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the youngest woman ever elected to Congress, who won her seat following an upset primary victory in the spring over former House leadership member Joe Crowley, is taking a break from her desperate quest to find an affordable Washington DC apartment to stoke public anger against Amazon on behalf of the voters in her district, which includes parts of north-central Queens that are adjacent to LIC.

In a series of tweets published Wednesday, Cortez claimed that residents in her district are "outraged" by Amazon's decision to move to NYC.
