The world's first 'living robots' that can now replicate themselves

Scientists have created astonishing new “living programmable organism” a super-sophisticated robot capable of self-replication. 


The Xenobots, computer-designed bio-robots, were adapted from frog stem cells and have now been programed to self replicate, spawning ‘babies’ from their Pac-Man-like mouths. Then these new Xenobots can go out, find cells, and build copies of themselves. Again and again. 

They hope that the self-generating Xenobots could advance personalized drug treatment for cancers, traumatic injuries, birth defects, and other major health issues. 

But is it the future of modern medicine? Technology futurist Ian Khan cautions against excessive optimism or excitement blinding us to the risks involved in the dawning technology. Robots that reproduce themselves 'aren't giant monsters — yet' 

By creating these self-replicating "living robots," the scientists are essentially answering the idea that self-replicating alien probes, known as von Neumann probes, do exist. 

These alien robotic probes could explore our galaxy and self-replicate themselves from interstellar dust and gas, after which the parent and child probes would each set off for a different star, where they would look for signs of life and then self-replicate themselves again. 

Mathematicians in Scotland calculate that "self-replicating" alien spacecraft could already have explored our solar system and may still be here but undetectable to our current technologies. 

According to some recent calculations, the massive new observational platform, The new Five-hundred-meter Aperture Spherical Radio Telescope (FAST) might be able to detect swarms of von Neumann probes relatively far away from the sun. 

Currently, human civilization is thought to be around a .75 on the Kardashev scale which perhaps explains that we as humans are only just beginning to understand how to make new forms of self-replication products, and certainly don't have the technology yet how to make self-replicating 'Neumann probes' in space which according to Michio Kaku could be Nano Ships.

Witness describes the huge glowing object that hovered above the flight deck of USS Ronald Reagan

In 2004, sailors aboard USS Ronald Reagan (CVN-76) say they encountered a mysterious, orb-shaped flying object off the eastern coast of the United States, that nearly two decades later, still defies explanation.  According to witnesses who were on the nuclear-powered Nimitz-class supercarrier that fateful night, a roughly 20 to 40-foot wide, luminous round object suddenly showed up and began to hover over the ship’s flight deck.  Karol Olesiak who was a 3rd class petty officer and Quartermaster on the Ronald Reagan at the time of the incident told The Debrief that when he arrived to relieve the previous watch that evening, the outgoing Quartermaster of the Watch indicated something was already going on at that time, though the individual offered no additional information. However, it soon became apparent to Olesiak that something was happening outside above the flight deck.  “I’m pretty sure ‘it’ was there,” Olesiak said. “And they were like, ‘I don’t know what that is. I don’t care.’

Hidden Image Exposed in Da Vinci's "The Last Supper" Painting!

Looking at the famous Da Vinci, “The Last Supper” picture, mirroring and inverting the picture in the correct way, inverting it right down the middle you get a hidden image that is unbelievable. What is revealed is absolutely Jaw Dropping! The question is, what did Da Vinci Know that he is trying to reveal?

The truth could be revealed at Congress' first public hearing on UFOs in 54 years

Concerns that UFOs have never-before-seen capabilities that can outmaneuver and outperform the US's most advanced military technology prompted Congress to call a historic UFO hearing, reports TheSun .  The House Intelligence Subcommittee will host the first congressional hearings on UFOs in more than 50 years Tuesday., May 17, 2022, Chaired by Rep. André Carson (D-Ind.), the hearing will include testimony from top U.S. intelligence and defense officials and follows last year's key government report on unidentified aerial phenomena.     Jeremy Corbell says Tuesday's congressional hearing on UFOs could confirm decades-old theories on mysterious sightings.     Ben Hansen, host of "UFO Witness" on Discovery + and UFO expert Nick Pope believe the US government knows more than it is letting on, and the truth could be revealed at Tuesday's congressional hearing.  

James Webb telescope captured a ring shaped object in the large Magellanic Cloud

Here in this video we have compared Webb's image with an similar image of Hubble telescope.  Images captured by Webb telescope shows most distant stars and galaxies in the large Magellanic Cloud. In the image below we can see a ring shaped object in the stars forming region of large Magellanic Cloud.  Previously one such object was seen by the Hubble Telescope and when zooming into a rich star-birth region of the large Magellanic Cloud, we can see in the image below a similar ring shaped object which is the remnant of a supernova named Supernova 1987A captured by Hubble.  May be the ring shaped object seen in the Webb's image would be something else.
