The schedule for Alien Con 2018 in Baltimore has just been released, and it is packed full of awesome UFO and alien panels and guest appearances by "Ancient Aliens" stars and famous UFO researchers like like Giorgio Tsoukalos, Linda Moulton Howe, Nick Pope, David Childless, Mike Bara, Stephen Bassett and good friend of TexasUFOs, Ryan Sprague.
The event will be held November 9th through 11th in Baltimore, Maryland. Single day passes as well as VIP and multi-day passes and add-on experiences (like autograph sessions), are available for purchase on the Alien Con website. The full schedule (so far) has also been posted to the website, and it includes star-studded autograph opportunities, as well as panels covering topics ranging from anti-gravity technology to the Doctor Who TV show to UFO whistle blower testimony to Ancient Egypt to Disclosure. There will also be a party and costume contest on Saturday night.
Although UFOJane and GLURP the Alien won't get to make it to this coming event, TexasUFOs will provide coverage of it, and you can relive the pair's past adventures at Alien Con 2018 in Pasadena and Alien Con 2016 in Santa Clara:

Late Astronaut John Glenn Tried to Tell Us the Truth About UFOs and Aliens in an Episode of Frasier!
In UFOJane's latest YouTube video, the question is asked.... was John Glenn a believer in UFOs and aliens, and did he try to tell us all the truth about them in an episode of Frasier?
Did you know that in August 1977, NASA tried to communicate with aliens? Specifically, they sent off a gold record (and a record player, too, of course) full of information about Earth and humans on two Voyager spacecraft. The disc contained diagrams of hydrogen atoms, pictures of the solar system, planet Earth, and various "human" scenes, along with sounds of human greetings in different languages, popular songs, and sound effects from Earth (including the sound of crickets, a heartbeat, and a wild dog).
The idea was Carl Sagan's, but despite him not being a fan of rock and roll, Chuck Berry's classic "Johnny B. Goode" made it to the record.
Of course, those who believe that NASA made contact with aliens a long time ago and has never disclosed this information may view this story as distracting disinformation. Others will probably wonder if NASA ever heard back from the aliens, and if that communication has since been kept top-secret.
Apparently, the gold record and record player were estimated to survive space for a billion years, so it's possible aliens may get the message way into the future.
What do you think of NASA's gold record offering to random aliens out in the galaxy? Was it a good idea? Was it a genuine attempt at communication? Share your thoughts on this in the comments below or join the conversation on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.
Artificial Intelligence Finds Evidence for Alien Life - Should We Worry About AI Communicating with Aliens?
It seems that every other month, there is a "new" news story about alien signals being detected in our galaxy. This time around, however, artificial intelligence is getting the credit for the discovery!
Breakthrough Initiatives was founded by investor and philanthropist Yuri Milner, who was - interestingly enough - named after the cosmonaut Yuri Gargarin (a somewhat controversial figure, due to conspiracy theories about his death), and is partially funded by none other than Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg.
Breakthrough Initiatives is currently making headlines as it has detected alien signals coming from deep space, 72 in all! By applying machine learning to data that the Green Bank Telescope collected, the team was able to find repeating, fast radio bursts (FRBs) that so far cannot be explained.
Theories about its origin include black holes, neutron stores, and yes... alien technology.
Believe it or not, this is not the first time AI has been used to search for alien life and has found compelling evidence for its existence. NASA has also used artificial intelligence for this purpose, and continues to do so today.
What do you think? Is this just another exciting story that will eventually fade out, like all the others, or is UFO and Alien Disclosure coming to a neighborhood near you?
What do you think of mankind's increased reliance on artificial intelligence? Should we worry about what the consequences will be if AI does find aliens? Could the AI eventually "evolve" to communicate with the aliens, on our behalf? Engineer and entrepreneur Elon Musk has spoken out publicly many times about his sobering concerns about AI.

UFOJane discusses Elon Musk's recent interview with Joe Rogan, where he talked about Bob Lazar and traveling to Mars, among other interesting topics. Could Elon Musk know something we don't about UFOs and aliens, or is he a truth seeker just like us? UFOJane wants to know, and this recent interview may give us all a hint...
