By Tara MacIsaac Skeptics and proponents of the ancient aliens theory have faced off for decades on the issue of the Dogon tribe’s allegedly advanced astronomical knowledge. Here’s a look at some of the arguments on both sides concerning this tribe from Mali, Africa, and its purported knowledge of the motions of a star not visible on Earth without modern telescopes. What The Dogon Are Said to Have Known Sirius is the brightest star in the sky and had a prominent place in many ancient cultures. Sirius, which is about 8.7 light years from Earth, has a white dwarf companion star, Sirius B. Sirius B cannot be seen with the naked eye, and astronomers first guessed at its existence in the 1830s. They mathematically developed a theoretical model of its orbit around Sirius (now referred to as Sirius A) later in the 19th century. The astronomers knew that Sirius B must be made of a super dense matter, but the specifics were beyond their comprehension until quantum physics helped explain it in 1926.

Manager hails squad after play-off win secures promotion to Premier LeagueReading’s Jaap Stam says his players must learn from the pain of defeat Huddersfield Town’s manager, David Wagner, called his players legends after they defeated Reading in a penalty shootout to gain promotion to the Premier League. The teams were deadlocked at 0-0 after a tense Championship play-off final before Christopher Schindler scored the decisive spot-kick for the club, who were last in England’s top flight in 1972. That secured an extraordinary rise for a club with one of the lowest budgets in this season’s Championship who had finished 19th last season. “I said to the players before the [play-off] semi-finals: ‘You are heroes, you finished fifth in the league, but from hero to zero in football is sometimes only a week and now you have the opportunity to become legends.

However, Castroneves' chances of success this year don't appear to be that strong when considering OddsShark's Justin Hartling reported 11 of the previous 14 winners have come from the grid's front nine: Unfortunately for the Brazilian, he's a gulf away from those positions as he prepares to start 19th, while fellow IndyCar great Juan Pablo Montoya, 41, sits just ahead of him at 18th.

IT was, says Theo Snelders, his best moment in football. The only problem was that his poor mother back home in Holland missed the whole thing. Here the Aberdeen goalkeeper was, psyching out Anton Rogan in the 19th penalty of a fraught Hampden shoot-out in 1990, diving low to his left and touching the ball behind to set up the Dons' 9-8 win, only to find out that the satellite feed to the Netherlands had stopped transmitting two hours after kick-off, forcing Dutch TV viewers to watch alternative programming halfway through the spot kicks. Should Aberdeen get their hands on this famous old trophy for the first time since then at the national stadium today, it is to be hoped that broadcasters Sky and BBC keep the cameras rolling for the duration.
