    In 2010, physicist Stephen Hawking voiced concern about the possibility that we might contact extraterrestrial life by transmitting signals into space. However, SETI senior astronomer Seth Shostak told us that it's too late to consider whether or not we should send such transmissions because we've already been doing it for decades.Follow BI Video: On Twitter

  • Roger Moore’s son is a dead ringer for his father in Bond costume

    It seems the next generation of the Moore family has continued to keep the British end up, so to speak. The Daily Mail shared an image of Geoffrey Moore, 50-year old son of the third 007 actor Roger, dressed as his father for a party in Mayfair this week. Geoffrey Moore was 7 years old when his father inherited the mantle of 007 with 1973’s ‘Live and Let Die,’ going on to be the most prolific Bond actor with seven films in the role before retiring in 1985 (by which time, most would agree the then 57-year old actor was far too old for the part).

  • Commuters accused of not moving from disabled woman's seat say they did nothing wrong

    Cat Lee/Guzelian Cat Lee said she found the men sitting in the seats she had booked for the 6.03pm train on Tuesday evening from London's King's Cross to Skipton in North Yorkshire.  The 43-year-old claimed that the men refused to move from her seats even when she explained she was disabled.

  • EastEnders: Roxy and Ronnie Mitchell to be killed off

    Love them or hate them, you can’t deny that Ronnie and Roxy Mitchell leaving EastEnders is going to be the end of an era for the BBC One soap, especially now that we have learned that it’s going to be a permanent departure. Actresses Rita Simons (Roxy) and Sam Womack (Ronnie) are said to be upset by the news that the Mitchell sisters are being bumped off as they’d hoped to have the option to return at some stage in the future. The exit comes under new producer Sean O’Connor’s ruling, with Sean already killing off much-loved character Paul Coker as well as announcing the departures of other favourites, including Babe Carter, Masood Ahmed, Lee Carter, Claudette Hubbard, Buster, Briggs, Pam and Les Coker and Kyle Slater.

  • Cyclist killed 'almost instantaneously' after lorry driver failed to observe her

Haywood, of Whitwell, Derbyshire, denied a charge of causing death by careless driving when he went on trial at Derby Crown Court yesterday. His driving was a cause

  • UFO? Rogue satellite? Just what was this massive FIREBALL over London?

    “I always have a look out the window in the mornings to show my daughter the birds and noticed this strange object in the sky.  “At first I thought it was a plane that leaves a trial behind it but realised quickly it wasn’t because it was just hovering.  “There were other planes flying high near the object but the object was above the planes and was stationary.  “I observed it for around 20 minutes. I thought it might have been the Chinese Space lab [Tiangong-2, which was launched on the same day] but the launch happened at 2pm GMT.  “Personally, I’m not sure what the object was. All I know is that it had to have been a massive object to appear as big as it did in the sky.”

  • Britain has lot to do before triggering EU divorce - foreign minister

    Britain has a lot of work to do before triggering the formal divorce procedure with the European Union but once it is done, the country will not let the process drag on, Foreign Minister Boris Johnson said on Sunday. Last week, Johnson said Britain would trigger Article 50 of the EU's Lisbon Treaty to start its exit from the bloc early next year. London is under pressure from fellow EU members and millions of Britons who voted to leave the bloc at a June referendum to start the divorce, and May's aides have suggested that she hopes the formal procedure will be started early next year.
