Voyager 1 has left the solar system, sudden changes in cosmic rays indicate

20 March 2013
AGU Release No. 13-11
For Immediate Release

WASHINGTON – Thirty-five years after its launch, Voyager 1 appears to have travelled beyond the influence of the Sun and exited the heliosphere, according to a new study appearing online today.

The heliosphere is a region of space dominated by the Sun and its wind of energetic particles, and which is thought to be enclosed, bubble-like, in the surrounding interstellar medium of gas and dust that pervades the Milky Way galaxy.

On August 25, 2012, NASA's Voyager 1 spacecraft measured drastic changes in radiation levels, more than 11 billion miles from the Sun. Anomalous cosmic rays, which are cosmic rays trapped in the outer heliosphere, all but vanished, dropping to less than 1 percent of previous amounts. At the same time, galactic cosmic rays – cosmic radiation from outside of the solar system – spiked to levels not seen since Voyager's launch, with intensities as much as twice previous levels.

The findings have been accepted for publication in Geophysical Research Letters, a journal of the American Geophysical Union.

"Within just a few days, the heliospheric intensity of trapped radiation decreased, and the cosmic ray intensity went up as you would expect if it exited the heliosphere," said Bill Webber, professor emeritus of astronomy at New Mexico State University in Las Cruces. He calls this transition boundary the "heliocliff."

In the GRL article, the authors state: "It appears that has exited the main solar modulation region, revealing and spectra characteristic of those to be expected in the local interstellar medium."

The Same Black Line

&list=AL94UKMTqg-9DmNqmCKqpXrY2pmBfYxmq7


Sirens ring, the shots ring out
A stranger cries, screams out loud
I had my world strapped against my back
I held my hands, never knew how to act

And the same black line that was drawn on you
Was drawn on me
And now it's drawn me in
6th Avenue heartache

Below me was a homeless man
I'm singin' songs I knew complete
On the steps alone, his guitar in hand
It's fifty years, stood where he stands

Now walkin' home on those streets
The river winds move my feet
Subway steam, like silhouettes in dreams
They stood by me, just like moonbeams

Look out the window, down upon that street
And gone like a midnight was that man
But I see his six strings laid against that wall
And all his things, they all look so small
I got my fingers crossed on a shooting star
Just like me-just moved on


Hey..... no worse the General dissuasion on porn and tv shows.

Mars Curiosity Rover Finds All But 1 Element Needed For Life on Mars

Scientists at NASA are reporting that a rock sample taken by NASA’s Curiosity Rover indicates that the surface of ancient Mars has all the elements needed to support life, except one.

This team of NASA scientists are indicating that some of the key chemical ingredients that support life, including sulfur, nitrogen, hydrogen, oxygen, phosphorus and carbon, where in the powder that the Curiosity Rover’s drillbit displaced while drilling into a piece of sedimentary rock in close proximity to an ancient riverbed in Gale Crater on Mars last month.

“A fundamental question for this mission is whether Mars could have supported a habitable environment,” said Michael Meyer, lead scientist for NASA’s Mars Exploration Program, part of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory at the California Institute of Technology (CALTECH) “from what we know now, the answer is yes.”

The missing piece of the puzzle for the discovery of previous life on Mars is water.

And that's the first place they dug and analyzed.

This looks very promising that life will be found or at least signs of ancient life.

Charts: Bush Lowballed Us on Iraq by $6 Trillion

Charts: Bush Lowballed Us on Iraq by $6 Trillion

Ten years later, the Bush administration's projected price tag for the war in Iraq seems downright cute. According to the first-ever comprehensive count of the true toll of the combined wars, the estimate the administration used to sell the invasion in 2003 was about 100 times too low.

WND: 'Obama's Long History of Attracting Flies' Suggests Demonic Possession

The History Channel today denied claims that have been making the rounds on Twitter, including Glenn Beck, that the character depicting Satan in “The Bible” docudrama looks like President Obama. But WorldNetDaily thinks that the supposed resemblance is further proof that Obama is demonic, once again alleging that President Obama may be the Satanic deity Beelzebub, or Lord of the Flies, because flies have landed on him. In an article today, WND executive news director Joe Kovacs points to four incidences since 2008 where flies were present at a press conference or interview.

Kovacs cites RevelationNow.net, which also believes that Beyonce is possessed by demons and that her Super Bowl performance represented demonic brainwashing, to imply that “Obama is possessed by a demonic entity.”

In case you aren’t convinced by the fact that Obama is demonic because he has had to swat away flies (which no one else has ever done) and because Beck thinks that a character playing the Devil in a TV show kind of looks like him, Kovacs also notes that on November 5, 2008, the Illinois Pick 3 lottery number was 666.

Case closed.
