REVEALED: NASA discovers that there is a protective MAN-MADE bubble surrounding Earth

Sean Martin     May 18, 2017

NASA has detected a man-made bubble surrounding Earth which they did not create - leaving many baffled.

snip   video

"The protective casing however was not formed by an intelligent extra-terrestrial race, but rather evidence that humanity’s impact on Earth extends far beyond the planet itself.

The footprint that modern humans have left on Earth is unprecedented with our rise, especially the industrial revolution and its follow through, leaving a permanent scar on the planet.

Such has been our impact that experts are calling for a new geological era – the Anthropocene Epoch – to be introduced as we permanently changed the landscape.

However, NASA has revealed that our actions have repercussions far beyond this world.

NASA has discovered a protective bubble around Earth

In 2012, the space agency sent two probes to the Earth’s Van Allen Belts – two radiation belts that surround the Earth.

New data from the probes has revealed that very low frequency, or VLF, radio communications from Earth have been found to interact with particles in space, which has pushed the Van Allen Belts farther out.

Dan Baker, director of the University of Colorado’s Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics in Boulder, described the new barrier as the “impenetrable barrier” and speculates that if there were no VLF transmissions, the Van Allen Belts would be closer to Earth, exposing us to more radiation from space.

NASA said in a statement: “VLF transmissions may serve as a way to remove excess radiation from the near-Earth environment.”

Haha thanks Breezy.  I honestly wonder about some of these scientific theories.  Man's footprint is pretty powerful stuff isn't it - nothing about multiple numerous and ongoing nuclear testing (both in the ground and in the lower atmosphere) or chem trailing the crap out of the sky with heavy metals and god only knows what else, etc    No, none of this would have had any effects in the space above our heads so it has to be VLF emissions.  Yeah right!

NASA Spacecraft Finds a Chaotic Dance of Storms at Jupiter’s Poles

May 25, 2017            Kenneth Chang

"The top and bottom of Jupiter are pockmarked with a chaotic mélange of swirls that are actually immense storms hundreds of miles across. The planet’s interior core appears bigger than expected, generating surprisingly strong magnetic fields. Auroral lights shining in Jupiter’s polar regions seem to operate in a reverse way to those on Earth. And plumes of ammonia may be rising out of the planet.

Those are some of the early findings of scientists working on NASA’s Juno mission, an orbiter that arrived at Jupiter on July 4 last year. With a looping elliptical orbit, Juno is making repeated dives to within about 2,600 miles of the cloud tops. The spacecraft’s instruments peer far beneath, giving scientists glimpses of the inside of Jupiter, the solar system’s largest planet.

Two papers, one describing the polar storms, the other examining the magnetic fields and auroras, appear in this week’s issue of the journal Science. A cornucopia of 44 additional papers are being published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters.

NASA’s earlier missions — the flybys of Voyager 1 and 2 in 1979 and an extended orbital visit by Galileo from 1995 to 2003 — looked at Jupiter from the side. What the spacecraft could see of the polar regions was from a sharp angle, with details hard to make out."

@jessica  Seems to me that VLF transmissions have just possibly saved we humans from extinction from all the bomb testing, DU weapons, etc., if what they said is true. " ie: NASA said in a statement: “VLF transmissions may serve as a way to remove excess radiation from the near-Earth environment.”  (the real question here is, do we trust what NASA says?)

FREQUENCY FLIERS ‘Strange’ signals that appear to be coming from a star close to Earth may have been sent by ALIENS, scientists say

July 17, 2017     Margi Murphy

"Astronomers picked up the communications in May and have refused to rule out the possibility they were sent by extraterrestrials

STARGAZERS have received “some very peculiar signals” while observing a distant dwarf star.

Experts listening in at the Arecibo Observatory were on a planet-spotting mission when the strange “pulses” came over the radio between April and May.

snip picture

However, while boffins have not ruled out the possibility that the signals were produced by aliens, it’s not currently the top theory about their origin.

It wasn’t until two weeks after the project finished that they noticed the strange signals which came from Ross 128 (GJ447), some 11 light years away, on 12 May at 1.53 AM (BST).

Ross 128 is a small red dwarf that is the 12th closest star to Earth – which makes it very close indeed when compared to the billions and billions of other suns out there in the universe.

“We believe that the signals are not local radio frequency interferences (RFI) since they are unique to Ross 128 and observations of other stars immediately before and after did not show anything similar,” wrote Professor Abel Mendez in a blogpost last week.

The planetary astrobiologist and Nasa fellow who is based at the University of Puerto Rico believes there could be three explanations for the strange noises.

One possibility is a series of solar flare emissions from the star.

snip  audio of the signal

They could be also be emissions from another object which is in the field of view of Ross 128 (GJ447).

The third solution suggests we might be to blame for it.

Soaring space junk or a stray satellite might have burst onto the radar, Professor Mendez suggested.

However, alien hunters will be pleased to learn it could be a bunch of extra-terrestrials hoping to get in touch - a possibility Mendez said he couldn't rule out.

But he was quick to point out was "at the bottom of [a list of] many other better explanations".

"The United States Air Force's X-37B program is readying its next robotic mini-shuttle for launch, this time atop a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket.

The liftoff is scheduled to take place in early September, according to media reports.

Capt. Annmarie Annicelli, a U.S. Air Force spokeswoman, told Inside Outer Space: "At this time, I do not have the launch date to release".      [The Mysterious X-37B Space Plane: 6 Surprising Facts]

The upcoming X-37B mission — which is known as Orbital Test Vehicle-5 (OTV-5) — will lift off from Launch Complex 39A at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

Shuttle look-alike 

The Air Force is known to own two reusable X-37B space planes, which were built by Boeing. The vehicles look like miniature versions of NASA’s now-retired space shuttle orbiter; each X-37B is 29 feet (8.8 meters) long and 9.6 feet (2.9 m) tall, and each has a wingspan of nearly 15 feet (4.6 m).

The space drone has a payload bay about the size of a pickup truck bed that can be outfitted with a robotic arm. It has a launch weight of 11,000 lbs. (4,990 kilograms) and is powered on orbit by gallium- arsenide solar cells with lithium-ion batteries.

The X-37B program is managed by the Air Force Rapid Capabilities Office to perform risk reduction, experimentation and concept of operations development for reusable space vehicle technologies."

How does that work? It's not like a comet. It's just a shadow. They already have satellites trained on the path of totality. Did they explain what that even means?

Massive black hole discovered near heart of the Milky Way

Ian Sample    Sept. 4, 2017

Astronomers find evidence of enormous black hole one hundred thousand times more massive than the sun in a gas cloud near the galaxy’s centre

If confirmed, the black hole will rank as the second largest black hole ever seen in the Milky Way after the supermassive black hole known as Sagittarius A*.

"An enormous black hole one hundred thousand times more massive than the sun has been found hiding in a toxic gas cloud wafting around near the heart of the Milky Way.

If the discovery is confirmed, the invisible behemoth will rank as the second largest black hole ever seen in the Milky Way after the supermassive black hole known as Sagittarius A* that is anchored at the very centre of the galaxy.

Astronomers in Japan found evidence for the new object when they turned a powerful telescope in the Atacama desert in Chile towards the gas cloud in the hope of understanding the strange movement of its gases. Unlike those that make up other interstellar clouds, the gases in this cloud – including hydrogen cyanide and carbon monoxide – move at wildly different speeds.

Observations from the Alma telescope in Chile showed that molecules in the elliptical cloud, which is 200 light years from the centre of the Milky Way and 150 trillion kilometres wide, were being pulled around by immense gravitational forces. The most likely cause, according to computer models, was a black hole no more than 1.4 trillion km across.

The scientists’ suspicion that a black hole lay in the midst of the gas cloud received a boost when further observations picked up radio waves indicative of a black hole coming from the centre of the cloud, said Tomoharu Oka , an astronomer at Keio University in Tokyo. “This is the first detection of an intermediate-mass black hole candidate in the Milky Way galaxy,” he said."

WATCH LIGO MYSTERY ANNOUNCEMENT LIVE ONLINE: SCIENTISTS TO UNVEIL UNPRECEDENTED ASTRONOMICAL DISCOVERY

Meghan Bartels   Oct. 16, 2017

snip  video

 

"Update: The team announced the first detection of gravitational waves from colliding neutron stars. | Today, scientists studying gravitational waves are due to make a mysterious announcement of what's being hailed as an "unprecedented discovery" and you can watch the excitement live online starting at 10 a.m. ET.

The announcement is being led by scientists taking part in the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) in the U.S. and the Virgo Collaboration in Europe, a total of three detectors that listen for gravitational waves. A network of other astronomical facilities worldwide is also part of the mystery.

The scientific community has been full of speculation for the past few weeks that LIGO had spotted something intriguing. Gossip began in earnest after an astronomer at the University of Texas tweeted "New LIGO." and referenced an optical component, which would mean something besides the black hole mergers the detector has spotted so far.

Some experts suggest the hubbub was prompted by the detection of two neutron stars colliding, others speculate LIGO could shed light on dark matter, which could theoretically actually be made up of primordial black holes created just after the Big Bang.

Gravitational waves are often described as "ripples in the fabric of space-time." The idea is that very massive objects in the universe—like planets, stars, and black holes—all exert gravity on their surroundings (this is what keeps the Moon orbiting Earth). But when something dramatic enough happens, like two black holes spiraling towards each other and colliding, the event releases gravitational waves that ripple out from the source and travel across the universe."

snip

Just out of curiosity, didn't our entity talk about gravitational waves, in fact mentioning one headed our way?  So we knew, before the scientists, that they were indeed a fact?

FIRST ALIEN CONTACT? Russian cosmonauts find mysterious bacteria on the hull of the International Space Station that’s NOT from Earth

Nov. 27, 2017   Sam Webb

"The cosmonaut said that living bacteria harvested from the metal skin may be from outer space

BACTERIA discovered on the surface of the International Space Station may not be from Earth, a Russian cosmonaut claims.

Anton Shkaplerov, an ISS expedition flight engineer who will take his third trip to the space station in December, said that living bacteria harvested from the metal skin may be extraterrestrial.

Microorganisms from Earth have been found on the station's skin before but they have got there thanks to the ionosphere lift phenomenon, where substances from Earth rise into the atmosphere.

Shkaplerov said: "Bacteria that had not been there during the launch of the ISS module were found on the swabs.

"So they have flew from somewhere in space and settled on the outside hull."

He added that the samples are being probed by scientists and seem to be safe."

A Neutron Star Hiding Out Near a Black Hole Is Pelting Earth with Radio Waves

By Charles Q. Choi, Live Science Contributor | January 10, 2018

Source Link:  https://www.livescience.com/61392-outer-space-pulses-strike-earth.html?utm_source=notification

 

New work probes the extraterrestrial source of incredibly powerful explosions of radio waves, investigating why that spot is the only known location to repeatedly burst with these blasts. 

These repeating bursts may come from a dense stellar core called a neutron star near an extraordinarily powerful magnetic field, such as one near a massive black hole, the study finds.

Fast radio bursts, or FRBs, are intense pulses of radio waves lasting just milliseconds that can give off more energy in a fraction of a second than the sun does in hours, days or weeks. FRBs were discovered only in 2007, and while researchers have detected 20 or so FRBs in the past decade, they estimate that such flashes might occur as many as 10,000 times a day across the entire sky, researchers wrote in the study. [Inside a Neutron Star (Infographic)]

Much remains a mystery about the origins of FRBs, because their brief nature makes it difficult to pinpoint where they come from. Among the possibilities that prior work suggested are cataclysmic events such as the evaporation of black holes and collisions between neutron stars.

However, in 2016, scientists discovered that a fast radio burst known as FRB 121102 could release multiple bursts. "It is the only known repeating fast radio burst source," study co-lead author Jason Hessels, an astrophysicist at the University of Amsterdam, told Space.com.

Swift Mission Spies a Comet Slowdown

 

Observations by NASA's Swift spacecraft, now renamed the Neil Gehrels Swift Observatory after the mission’s late principal investigator, have captured an unprecedented change in the rotation of a comet. Images taken in May 2017 reveal that comet 41P/Tuttle-Giacobini-Kresák — 41P for short — was spinning three times slower than it was in March, when it was observed by the Discovery Channel Telescope at Lowell Observatory in Arizona. The abrupt slowdown is the most dramatic change in a comet's rotation ever seen.
 
"The previous record for a comet spindown went to 103P/Hartley 2, which slowed its rotation from 17 to 19 hours over 90 days," said Dennis Bodewits, an associate research scientist at the University of Maryland (UMD) in College Park who presented the findings Wednesday, Jan. 10, at the American Astronomical Society (AAS) meeting in Washington. "By contrast, 41P spun down by more than 10 times as much in just 60 days, so both the extent and the rate of this change is something we've never seen before."

From NewWorld's article posted above

10929.jpeg

I have a couple questions

Why are the only pictures we have of this event "Artist's Interpretations"???  Surely everyone's "spy" satellites were watching for this thing to come down?  Should be real images of it's crashing into the S.Pacific.

With all that junk we have up there, how did this "space station" the size of a bus, tumble through space for almost two years, and while totally uncontrollable manage to not collide with any of that other "junk"?  

Call me a conspiracy theorist if you will, but it seems totally impossible, especially since the article also said it was descending towards earth all that time, and that's why they didn't know where it would come down.  uh huh!    :wink:
