Una grieta gigante en el campo magnético de la Tierra

  Ciencia Nasa - 16 dic. 2008
  Las cinco sondas espaciales THEMIS, de la NASA, han descubierto una grieta en el campo magnético de la Tierra que es diez veces más grande de lo que anteriormente se pensaba posible. Los investigadores están asombrados por la extraña e inesperada manera en que se ha formado.Las cinco sondas espaciales THEMIS, de la NASA, han descubierto una grieta en el campo magnético de la Tierra que es diez veces más grande de lo que anteriormente se pensaba posible. El viento solar puede fluir a través de esta abertura y "cargar" la magnetósfera para que desencadene poderosas tormentas geomagnéticas. Sin embargo, la grieta en sí misma no es la sorpresa más grande. Los investigadores están aún más asombrados por la extraña e inesperada manera en que se ha formado, lo cual da por tierra ideas sobre la física espacial que se han conservado durante mucho tiempo.

Crop circle accurately predicts solar storms - USA - Dr. Michael Salla
  The Solar Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) confirms that on July 6, 2009, a very large Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) was emitted by the sun. This was followed by what appears to be a smaller CME being emitted by a solar flare on the morning of July 7, and another large CME emitted on July 8. The CMEs are partial confirmation for a coded prediction found in a crop circle discovered in Milk Hill England that evolved in three stages from June 21 to 30. The CMEs were captured by the SOHO satellite which is one million miles away from the Earth in the direction of the sun. Located in a stationary equilibrium point between the gravity of the sun and the Earth called a Lagrangian point, SOHO has a number of scientific instruments to monitor the sun’s behavior. The CMEs do not appear to be part of a series headed towards the Earth as initial interpretations of the coded crop circle message suggested. The emergence of the CMEs is, however, a remarkable development since it came right on the July 6/7 lunar eclipse prediction date.

The Sun is Acting Strangely Again


Prison Planet Forum - Monday, July 6, 2009

  Notice the bright spot in the southern hemisphere of the sun.  That is a sun spot and is forming into a class B solar Flare.  Not a real big deal on the whole of it.  That spot is interesting enough but what you need to pay attention to is the dark area in the northern hemisphere of the sun.   That is a sign for an impending solar storm.  At present it is being reported that this storm will miss the earth.  I have been watching that area of the sun for the last 2 days and with the recent reports from the space weather people on this area now also I am a bit concerned. Also with reports at from some of the sun bathers that the suns effects are “weird” or “strange”.  To include reports of sun burns or tanning occurring  faster then normal and people that say they never burn only tan actually getting burns instead of Tans. I have checked locally with a few sun worshiping tanners and they seem to confirm these reports.  The Ladies at the pool have been complaining of sun burns in places that they never burn.  There has been in fact much talk about this around the pool.

Russians order Flight Changes, after Massive Magnetic Shift downs Airliners...


MINA Macedonian International News Agency - 1 de Julio 2009

  Reports circulating in the Kremlin today are saying that Russian Air Force Commanders have issued warnings to all of their aircraft to exercise “extreme caution” during flights “in and around” an area defined as...  Though Western scientist assert that the formation of this new ocean is not likely to be finished for millions of years, Russian scientists state, unequivocally, that due to the Suns current unprecedented Deep Solar Minimum, our Earth is in danger of being, literally, “ripped apart”, at the worst, or nearing a “total pole reversal” due to an as yet unexplained, but extremely powerful, gravitational force emanating from the outer reaches of our Solar System that some researchers state is the mysterious Planet X, and which many believe to be a large brown dwarf and known to the ancient peoples of Earth as Nibiru, and called by the name of Wormwood in the Christian Bible.

What's going on with the sun?


Ely Daily Times - Ely, NV, USA - 18 de Junio

  "Even a below-average cycle is capable of producing severe space weather," Biesecker warned. "The great geomagnetic storm of 1859, for instance, occurred during a solar cycle of about the same size we're predicting for 2013." That 1859 storm was known as the "Carrington Event" after astronomer Richard Carrington who saw the erupting solar flare. Once the outburst struck the earth, it electrified telegraph cables and caused fires in the telegraphers' offices. The accompanying Northern Lights were allegedly so bright, people were able to read newspapers by their light alone. According to the NASA release, “A recent report by the National Academy of Sciences found that if a similar storm occurred today, it could cause 1 to 2 trillion dollars in damages to society's high-tech infrastructure and require four to 10 years for complete recovery.”

Magnetic field and electric grid collapse – the New Energy imperative


OpEdNews - Newtown, PA, USA - 9 de Junio

  One of the major puzzles facing space weather scientists is the Earth’s weakening magnetic field. As the magnetic field weakens, so too does the Earth’s natural defense against harmful solar and cosmic radiation.  In December 2008, NASA scientists discovered a huge breach in the Earth’s magnetic field that was far larger than anything observed previously. The weakening magnetic field and emergence of giant breaches will allow far more solar energy to enter into the Earth’s atmosphere than anytime in known history. As this happens, the planet’s electric power grid systems could face systemic collapse. Space Weather scientists have been convening workshops and issuing reports on the prospects of electric grid collapse from severe solar storms.  As the magnetic field continues to weaken, introducing independent off-the grid energy systems using renewable energy sources as a lifeline for humanity becomes an imperative.  Among the least understood but potentially most beneficial sources of renewable energy are “new energy” technologies.

10 Most Incredible Solar Flares Captured In Pictures


Environmental Graffiti - London, England, UK - 15 Mayo

Solar flares are like the Sun’s equivalents of Earth’s natural hazards, though of course they occur on a much larger scale. It would be nice to say such phenomena have minimal impact on the environment or life on Earth, but solar flares do strongly influence our local space weather, and produce streams of highly energetic particles in solar wind that can pose radiation risks to astronauts. Who knows what a biggie could do? While we wait for the answer, trying not to put the words “mass” and extinction” together, don your protective glasses and prepare for some dazzling images of solar eruptions – like the limb flare above.

Solar storms ahead: Is Earth prepared?


WREX-TV - Rockford, IL, USA - 13 de Mayo

When we look at the sun (carefully), it appears to be a uniform, unchanging star. But scientists and engineers have a much different perspective. To them, the sun is a dynamic, chaotic, and poorly understood caldron of thermonuclear forces, one that can spit out fierce bursts of radiation at any time. And when Earth lies in the path of that blast, the flare can play havoc with power grids, disrupt radio communications, and disturb or disable satellites. Fifty years into the Space Age, Earth has avoided the worst the sun can deliver - so far.

Cyberspies or solar storms - the real threat to US electrical grid - Dr. Michael Salla - 9 de Abril


On April 8, a front page article was published in the Wall Street Journal on the dangers posed by cyberspies to the U.S. electrical grid. According to senior intelligence officers who spoke with the Journal, “Cyberspies have penetrated the U.S. electrical grid and left behind software programs that could be used to disrupt the system.” No action has been taken so far to disrupt the electrical grid by China, Russia and other involved countries. In a time of war or national crisis, however, the electrical grid could be severely disrupted by foreign entities disrupting the electrical grid through the internet. The possibility of cyber attacks is considered very real by some sources. Missing entirely from the Wall Street Journal article, however, was any mention of a more likely threat to the electrical grid. A threat that led a prestigious panel of scientists with the National Research Council issuing a report in January 2009 warning of a catastrophic electrical grid failure – giant solar storms around 2012..


Whistleblower testimony: An electrical engineer on 2012-2013


Project - 6 de abril del 2009


We have been contacted by the wife of an electrical engineer who has been officially briefed about a serious major threat to infrastructure in a few years' time. We believe this information is credible and important but the contact may now have been lost. Therefore we are publishing what we have - with many questions unanswered.





El Sol ha entrado en un extraño periodo de quietud, dice la NASA


TeleCinco - 2 de abril del 2009


La agencia espacial estadounidense NASA detectó que el Sol ha entrado en un extraño proceso de quietud, con una ausencia de manchas en su superficie, y de intensidad en las llamaradas y las tormentas, según informa en su página web. La NASA había indicado en septiembre pasado que la presión promedio del viento solar -el torrente de partículas cargadas que embate la atmósfera terrestre y empuja los rayos cósmicos hacia los lindes del sistema planetaria- había caído un 20 por ciento desde mediados de la década de 1990. El astrónomo alemán Heinrich Schwabe determinó a mediados del siglo XIX que los ciclos se cumplían con bastante regularidad cada 11 años, y eso ha continuado así durante más de 200 años. Pero este año las bajas han sido tan persistentes como las del mercado de valores. Y aunque los expertos creían que se había tocado fondo en 2008, las gráficas han seguido cayendo. En todo el año 2008 no se observaron manchas solares durante 266 días, esto es el 73 por ciento del período, y por ello los expertos creyeron que el ciclo tocaba fondo y empezaría a reactivarse.


Científicos esperan que en 2012 la tierra reciba tormentas solares


Ciudadano - 2 de abril del 2009


ASTRONOMÍA. Científicos norteamericanos advirtieron hace poco que el globo terráqueo sufriría en 2012 una poderosa tormenta solar, cuya capacidad devastadora sería mucho mayor a la que tuvo el huracán Katrina, y ningún ser humano se escaparía apenas a su impacto catastrófico. A medianoche del 22 de septiembre de 2012 aparecería un telón óptico colorido en el cielo sobre Manhattan, en Nueva York, Estados Unidos. En la región sureña como esta ciudad, pocas personas podrían ver este fenómeno fascinante de aurora polar. Sin embargo, el sentimiento agradable de la gente, generado de la contemplación de esta escena maravillosa, no duraría mucho, pues varios segundos después los focos eléctricos de esta zona empezarían a oscurecer y centellear y, de repente, volver a relucir de manera extraordinariamente brillante. Acto seguido, sucedería un apagón general.


2012 may bring the “perfect storm” – solar flares, systems collapse - Alfred Webre - 1 de Abril


Long scorned as “mysticism” and “parascience,” concern about the year 2012 has now surfaced in a mainstream NASA report on the potential impacts on human society of solar flares anticipated to peak in 2012.  The Obama administration and other national governments are not aggressively focused on contingency preparations for the 2012 solar flare impacts, or on introducing available anti-gravitic, new energy sources that would transform centralized high-power electrical grid systems into de-centralized, anti-gravitic and quantum process energy sources.  These new energy sources are less vulnerable to destructive solar storms, have no negative environmental impact, and could unleash unprecedented economic and social transformation.





Electrical power grid to be blasted by 2012 solar storms - Dr. Michael Salla - 27 de Marzo


A report issued by the National Research Council (NRC) in January 2009 has warned of the far reaching consequences of a solar storm hitting the Earth as the sun becomes more active during solar cycle 24 which began in 2008 and peaks around 2012. A March 23 article in the New Scientist discussed the significance of the NRC report which details how a solar storm could wipe out the electrical power grid causing massive disruption in the U.S. and around the planet.  The impact of the plasma energy directly bombarding the Earth during a solar storm could lead to electrical power stations being off line for weeks and months at a time, as overworked workers try to repair badly damaged electrical equipment. According to the NRC report, this would lead to “disruption of the transportation, communication, banking, and finance systems, and government services; the breakdown of the distribution of potable water owing to pump failure; and the loss of perishable foods and medications because of lack of refrigeration.” Imagine life without running water from a tap, no refrigeration for storing food, gas for your car, or mass transit due to the power grid being off line for months. Millions of Americans could subsequently die in such a scenario described by Michael Brooks author of the New Scientist article, “Space storm alert: 90 seconds from catastrophe.” Such disturbing scenarios are very possible according to the National Research Council report. Now is the right time for bold action to replace the outdated electrical power grid with a decentralized form of fuelless or 'new energy' generators that can be mass produced for homes, small businesses and essential services.


Space storm alert: 90 seconds from catastrophe


NewScientist - Space - 23 de Marzo del 2009


Surely the sun couldn't create so profound a disaster on Earth. Yet an extraordinary report funded by NASA and issued by the US National Academy of Sciences (NAS) in January this year claims it could do just that. Over the last few decades, western civilisations have busily sown the seeds of their own destruction. Our modern way of life, with its reliance on technology, has unwittingly exposed us to an extraordinary danger: plasma balls spewed from the surface of the sun could wipe out our power grids, with catastrophic consequences. The projections of just how catastrophic make chilling reading. "We're moving closer and closer to the edge of a possible disaster," says Daniel Baker, a space weather expert based at the University of Colorado in Boulder, and chair of the NAS committee responsible for the report.





Space agencies planning for sun-nuzzling satellite


Scientific American - 20 de Marzo


The European Space Agency (ESA) and NASA today announced their preliminary selections for the instruments that will fly aboard ESA's forthcoming Solar Orbiter satellite, which will orbit the sun closer than ever before. The satellite, sometimes known as SOLO, will keep tabs on the sun and the space weather it creates from a cozy position next to our star—inside the orbit of Mercury and less than one-fourth the distance from Earth to the sun. (By comparison, NASA and ESA's currently operating Solar and Heliospheric Observatory, or SOHO, is positioned much farther out—roughly 99 percent of the way from the sun to Earth.) SOLO will also provide a rare glimpse of the polar regions of the sun.


La NASA anuncia que una tempestad solar puede causar un desastre en 2012


Escuadrón de la Verdad - 12 de Enero del 2009


Un reciente informe (un dossier de 145 páginas) realizado para la NASA y la ESA a traves de la Academia Nacional de Ciencias de EE.UU. corrobora las apocalipticas predicciones para el año 2012. El informe dice que se espera para el 2012 una tormenta solar que dara al traste con todos los sistemas vivos en la Tierra.


Powerful Solar Storm Could Shut Down U.S. for Months


Fox - 9 de Febrero del 2009


A new study from the National Academy of Sciences outlines grim possibilities on Earth for a worst-case scenario solar storm. Damage to power grids and other communications systems could be catastrophic, the scientists conclude, with effects leading to a potential loss of governmental control of the situation. The prediction is based in part on a major solar storm in 1859 that caused telegraph wires to short out in the United States and Europe, igniting widespread fires.


2012: No habrá llamarada solar asesina


Astro Web - 30 de Agosto 2008

Podríamos estar en medio de un descomunal espectáculo de fuegos artificiales en 2012. El Sol se aproximará a su pico en el ciclo de 11 años, conocido como “máximo solar”, por lo que es de esperar una gran actividad en el Sol. Algunas predicciones colocan el máximo del Ciclo Solar 24 como más energético que los últimos máximos solares de 2002 y 2003 (¿recuerdas todas esas llamaradas de clase X batiendo los registros?). Los físicos solares están entusiasmados con este nuevo ciclo y los nuevos métodos de predicción se están poniendo en uso. ¿Deberíamos preocuparnos? De acuerdo con uno de los muchos escenarios apocalípticos que hemos presentado anteriormente en el final del mundo basado en las profecías mayas para el año 2012, éste en realidad tiene algo de base científica. Es más, puede existir cierta correlación entre el ciclo solar de 11 años y los ciclos temporales vistos en el calendario maya, ¿tal vez esta antigua civilización comprendió cómo el magnetismo del Sol sufre cambios de polaridad cada década aproximadamente? Además, los textos religiosos (tales como la Biblia) dicen que en el día del Juicio Final implicará una gran cantidad de fuego y azufre. ¡Por lo que parece, vamos a quedar asados vivos por nuestra propia estrella el 21 de diciembre de 2012!

Is a 'Katrina-Like' Space Storm Brewing?


abc news - science and technology - 9 de enero del 2009


U.S. scientists worry we aren't ready for a solar space storm that could knock out our electricity, our cell phones, even our water supply. The chances of that happening are small, but it is a possibility as we move into an active period of solar storms. How do they know? Well, it's happened before. Back in 1859, a solar eruption resulted in telegraph wires burning up.


Alerta sobre Tormenta Solar


Science from NASA - 10 de Marzo 2003


La noticia esta confirmada: el Mínimo Solar ha llegado. Las manchas solares han desaparecido. No hay llamaradas solares. El Sol se encuentra tranquilo. Como la calma antes de la tormenta. Esta semana un grupo de investigadores anunció que una tormenta viene en camino —la más intensa durante un mínimo solar en cincuenta años. La predicción fue hecha por el equipo dirigido por Mausumi Dikpati del Centro Nacional de Investigaciones Atmosféricas (National Center for Atmospheric Research ó NCAR). "El siguiente ciclo solar será de un 30 a un 50% más intenso que el anterior", dice ella. Si esto es correcto, en los próximos años se producirá un estallido de actividad solar apenas menor que el del histórico máximo solar de 1958.


Solar Superstorm


Science from NASA - 23 de Oct. 2003


Newly uncovered scientific data of recorded history's most massive space storm is helping a NASA scientist investigate its intensity and the probability that what occurred on Earth and in the heavens almost a century-and-a-half ago could happen again. In scientific circles where solar flares, magnetic storms and other unique solar events are discussed, the occurrences of September 1-2, 1859, are the star stuff of legend. Even 144 years ago, many of Earth's inhabitants realized something momentous had just occurred. Within hours, telegraph wires in both the United States and Europe spontaneously shorted out, causing numerous fires, while the Northern Lights, solar-induced phenomena more closely associated with regions near Earth's North Pole, were documented as far south as Rome, Havana and Hawaii, with similar effects at the South Pole.
