A Billion Times More Powerful Than Atom Bomb: NASA Tracks Chelyabinsk Meteor Plume As It Circles Around the World in Four Days

Atmospheric physicist Nick Gorkavyi missed witnessing an event of the century last winter when a meteor exploded over his hometown of Chelyabinsk, Russia. From Greenbelt, Md., however, NASA’s Gorkavyi and colleagues witnessed a never-before-seen view of the atmospheric aftermath of the explosion.

A meteor weighing 10,000 metric tons exploded 14 miles above Chelyabinsk, Russia, on Feb. 15, 2013. Unlike similar past events, this time scientists had the sensitive instruments on the Suomi NPP satellite to deliver unprecedented data and help them track and study the meteor plume for months.

Shortly after dawn on Feb. 15, 2013, the meteor, or bolide, measuring 59 feet (18 meters) across and weighing 11,000 metric tons, screamed into Read more…

NASA Mystified By Enormous Energy Field

The revelations of our energetic Universe keep on coming from many sources, including NASA’s new satellites, and it’s quite remarkable.

The observable Universe is something mankind has read as a language since the beginning. The unobservable worlds have always been the realm of philosophers, religious expressions and the esoteric sciences.

Are they coming together via modern technology, as we approach the Singularity as some call it, as a manifestation of some sort of consciousness shift?

I think so.

The video below was sent to me by a dear friend at Philosophers Stone in confirmation of my last post on this subject. It so blew my mind I wanted to get it out there as a sequel of sorts and to reinforce the above.

Scientists In Awe

More information being collected by higher and higher technology is making some seriously profound discoveries.

NASA’s Fermi Gamma-Ray Telescope is finding hundreds of new objects at the very edge of the electromagnetic spectrum. Many of them have one thing in common: Astronomers have no idea what they are. Read more…

NASA on the Moon – Lunar Gravity Shifting

Scientists say that a recent analysis of a Lunar Laser Ranging data record across a period of 38.7 years revealed an anomalous increase of the eccentricity of the lunar orbit.

NASA on the Moon - Lunar Gravity Shifting

This phenomena occurring in the interiors of both the Earth and the Moon, cannot be explained say expert in quantum cosmology.

They have examined numerous dynamical effects, not modeled in the data analysis, in the framework of long-range modified models of gravity and of the standard Newtonian/Einsteinian paradigm. The results are puzzling since none of them can explain the Read more…

NASA Satellite Falling: Will It Hit You?

September 10, 2011 Comments off

A NASA satellite is expected to make a crash landing on Earth in late September or early October. No one knows where it will land, not even NASA. It could even land on you — but luckily, you have a better chance of winning the lottery than of having a piece of the satellite fall on your head.

According to Nicholas Johnson, NASA’s chief scientist for orbital debris (yes, there is such a job), the odds of any specific person getting hit are about 1 in 21 trillion, MSNBC reported. That’s a chance of about 0.0000000001 percent. For perspective, the odds of any given person winning the lottery are 1 in hundreds of billions, depending on the lottery design — but nowhere near the trillions.

There is a much greater, but still minimal, chance that a piece of the satellite will hit someone on Earth: 1 in Read more…

NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory, or SDO, is providing new data and images for scientists to better understand the sun’s dynamic processes, which can affect Earth. The spacecraft launched in February 2010.NASA recently made a breakthrough in sunspot and solar storm predictions.Based on data from the Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO), this movie shows a sunspot emerging from depth in February 2011.

Astronomers have hunted the skies for Y dwarfs, the coldest members of the brown dwarf family, without success until data from NASA’s Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer revealed the faint glow of six such orbs within a distance of 40 light years from our sun. Unlike stars that burn steadily for billions of years, Y dwarfs fade and cool due to their low mass and inability to fuse atoms at their cores. These dwarfs hold a temperature about the same as a human body.

Astronomers study brown dwarfs in order to Read more…

In just a few hours from now, NASA rolls the STEREO BEHIND solar satellite to have a look at Comet Elenin (P/2010 X1), and if you haven’t been paying attention, it is one red hot topic topped with wilder imaginations, dooms, hypotheticals and omens than previously imagined.

From being on a par with/substitute for Read more…
