Site Closing:


Hi guys,


Gav and I have decided that it's no longer economic to keep SupernaturalUFO running so there won't be any new articles from today except on Twitter. We've both been funding the site out of our own pockets since we began 5 years ago to give our readers the best reading experience and we're against advertising so bottom line is, we're closing down.


We'd like to personally thank our readers, contributors and anyone else who has been involved with the site, your input has been invaluable in us publishing nearly twenty thousand news articles.


If anybody has any questions, queries or simply wants to keep in touch, I can be contacted at Kurhah@Hotmail.co.uk and Gav at gavin@supernaturalufo.com


If you're interested in potentially taking over the site and its content then please contact gavin@supernaturalufo.com


Thanks guys, you've been awesome!!


Chris & Gav

Leonard Nimoy Leaves Legacy Beyond Science-Fiction

Leonard Nimoy Leaves Legacy Beyond Science-Fiction

Via Dave Reneke Leonard Nimoy didn’t just leave a lasting impression on the science-fiction world, he also left his mark on science itself. He influenced careers and almost highhandedly sanitized the ‘alien’ character in sci-fi drama. Seth Shostak, who researches the possibility of real-world extraterrestrial life as the senior astronomer at SETI Research, recalled that Nimoy was regularly willing to […]
