Curious thing... If anyone remembers the interviews Project Camelot did of Paul LaViolette, he spoke of a galactic superwave of some sorts headed our way, and some of the people who claimed to be on the inside of the secret space program also spoke about "something that was headed our way."
Well, guess what ─ and I'm actually surprised that no one at Slashdot has posted about it yet ─ it was in the local scientific news here in Europe a few days ago that a gigantic plasma burst is being emanated from the supermassive black hole at the galactic center right now. It's supposedly due to friction of superheated particles near the event horizon, making the supermassive black hole brighter than ever observed before. And if the radio telescopes can pick it up, then it must be close.
