Subject: Bubbles

Sounds like Paul La Violette's Galactic Super Wave...

> Something big is going on at the center of the galaxy, and astronomers are happy to say they don't know what it is.
>
> A group of scientists working with data from NASA's Fermi Gamma-Ray Space Telescope said Tuesday that they had discovered two bubbles of energy erupting from the center of the Milky Way galaxy. The bubbles, they said at a news conference and in a paper to be published Wednesday in The Astrophysical Journal, extend 25,000 light years up and down from each side of the galaxy and contain the energy equivalent to 100,000 supernova explosions.

> "They're big," said Doug Finkbeiner of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, leader of the team that discovered them.
>
> The source of the bubbles is a mystery. One possibility is that they are fueled by a wave of star births and deaths at the center of the galaxy. Another option is a gigantic belch from the black hole known to reside, like Jabba the Hutt, at the center of the Milky Way. What it is apparently not is dark matter, the mysterious something that astronomers say makes up a quarter of the universe and holds galaxies together.

> "Wow," said David Spergel, an astrophysicist at Princeton who was not involved in the work.
>
> "And we think we know a lot about our own galaxy," Dr. Spergel added, noting that the bubbles were almost as big as the galaxy and yet unsuspected until now.
>
> Jon Morse, head of astrophysics at NASA headquarters, said, "This shows again that the universe is full of surprises."
>
> One of the most surprised was Dr. Finkbeiner. A year ago he was part of a group led by Gregory Dobler of the Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics in Santa Barbara, Calif., that said it had discerned the existence of a mysterious fog of high-energy particles buzzing around the center of the Milky Way. The particles manifested themselves as a haze of extra energy after all the known sources of gamma rays the most energetic form of electromagnetic radiation had been subtracted from Fermi data that had recently been made public.
>
> At the time, Dr. Finkbeiner and his colleagues speculated that the haze was produced by dark matter. The center of the galaxy is home to all manner of wild and woolly high-energy phenomena, including a gigantic black hole and violently spinning pulsars, but cosmological theories also suggest that dark matter would be concentrated there. Collisions of dark matter particles, the theory goes, could produce showers of gamma rays.
>
> But in the follow-up analysis, the haze besides being bigger than Dr. Finkbeiner and his colleagues had thought turned out to have sharp boundaries, like, well, a bubble. Dark matter, according to the prevailing theory, should be more diffuse.
>
> "Dark matter has been there billions of years," Dr. Finkbeiner explained. "If something has been going on for billions of years, you wouldn't expect a sharp edge."
>
> He and the other scientists said this did not mean that dark matter was not there clogging the center of the galaxy, but that it would be harder to see.

I hope Horizon do a prog. on this soon. That`s big, it always amazes me that news like this is overlooked in the msm. Is this not interesting?

WHO BUILT THE MOON

Biologists say the Moon has been pivotal to the development
of life on Earth, due to its gravitational force upon the
oceans, which creates the tides, as it revolves around our
planet.

Among the most noteworthy coincidences and anomalies
regarding the Moon is that only one side of the Moon
faces the Earth at all times and we never see the other,
"Dark Side".

Moreover, the Moon's size and distance from Earth make
it such that it covers the face of the Sun perfectly during
a total eclipse. The Moon is almost exactly 1/400th the size
of the Sun and its orbit happens to be positioned at exactly
1/400th the distance between the Earth and the Sun. With all
of this said -- and more, it could seem like the Moon were
artificially engineered.

While I may not agree with every statement in this New Age-y
presentation, it certainly offers food for thought.

Shooting stars light up winter sky

A glorious display of shooting stars is set to light up the winter sky on Monday and Tuesday as Earth encounters the Geminid meteors. Skip related content

In clear, dark conditions up to two meteors per minute may be visible, although some will be faint.

The brightest will appear as yellowish streaks that appear to radiate from the constellation of Gemini.

Although the shower's peak occurs at around 1100 on Tuesday, it may be possible to catch the shooting stars during dark periods any time up to Wednesday morning.

The Geminids consist of tiny particles ranging in size from a grain of sand to a pea shed by 3200 Phaethon, an object thought to be an extinct comet.

As the Earth crosses their path they hit the atmosphere at around 22 miles per second and burn up.

A dramatic "fireball" with a green trail that shot across Britain last Wednesday may have been an unusually large Geminid meteor arriving early.

Robin Scagell, vice-president of the Society for Popular Astronomy: "The Geminids are certainly going to be one of the major shows of the year, and there's a good chance it will be a fine display. The forecast is for up to 120 meteors per hour, but that's under perfect conditions."

Earth's orbit carries it through the stream of particles every year in the middle of December.

A spokesman for the Royal Astronomical Society said: "As with most astronomical events, the best place to see meteors is at dark sites away from the light pollution of towns and cities. In good weather, rural sites such as Galloway Forest Dark Sky Park in Scotland are potentially excellent locations to see the Geminid shower."

DONT FORGET IF YOU WANT TO CELEBRATE THE NEW YEAR THE FIRST DAY IS

22ND DECEMBER - IF YOU USE THE GREGORIAN CALENDER AS REFERENCE.

This day is the first revolution of the planet as it starts it's orbital journey back towards the sun from the furthest eliptical point and a meaningfull place to start the year from.


I now mentally celebrate this day every year.

We may be considering adding new members on a "block basis". We will collect new member requests and then introduce a new batch. The new memebrs will be identifiable by a prefix in their username as a "new member". Anyone considered to be trolling or causing trouble will be immedialtey removed. To be put on the list please email richard@richplanet.net AND GIVE YOUR US NAME, A USERNAME, PASSWORD. I would imagine a new batch of new members will be added in January 2012.
