P.I.D. Radio 8/9/15: Crab on Mars, Werewolf in Brazil


From Facebook group Feira do Rolo de Ceilândia

IT’S SURPRISING how often otherwise respectable news outlets publish stories with little verification. Some are difficult to take seriously, such as the alleged werewolf prowling the streets of Ceilândia, Brazil, and some are intended mainly to raise questions (especially about human origins), such as the “Stonehenge in space” report about Comet 67-P.

We also discuss Buzz Aldrin’s interesting expense report for Apollo 11, advances in genetics that could lead to really creepy mind control, the Blue Moon Murders in Escambia County, Florida, and how Black Hat hackers have figured out how to get your washing machine to spy on you.

By the way: Derek was almost right about the Philae lander on Comet 67-P. The probe is looking for organic molecules (which means anything with carbon atoms), but the request of Professor Chandra Wickramasinghe to include a test for microbial life was denied during the planning stage of the mission 15 years ago.
