          DAYS OF LOT: German Parliament approves same-sex marriage   
DAYS OF LOT: German Parliament approves same-sex marriage
We are truly living in the last days.  Do you recall the fire and brimstone which came down from heaven killing off the sodomites?  Guess what Planet X will be "kicking in"?  70 pound fiery space rocks will eventually fall from the sky like hail.  God is not amused...

Apocalypse 8: 8:11  And the second angel sounded the trumpet: and as it were a great mountain, burning with fire, was cast into the sea, and the third part of the sea became blood: And the third part of those creatures died, which had life in the sea, and the third part of the ships was destroyed. And the third angel sounded the trumpet, and a great star fell from heaven, burning as it were a torch, and it fell on the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters: And the name of the star is called Wormwood. And the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel says she voted against same-sex marriage because she believes the country’s law sees it as between a man and a woman, but that the opposite view must be respected.
Parliament voted to legalize same-sex marriage in a snap vote Friday. Lawmakers voted 393 for legalizing “marriage for everybody” and 226 against with 4 abstentions. Germany has allowed same-sex couples to enter civil partnerships since 2001, but same-sex marriages remained illegal.
Bringing the measure to a vote in Friday’s session, the last before September elections, was fast-tracked after Merkel said Monday lawmakers could take up the issue as a “question of conscience,” freeing members of her conservative coalition, which has been against same-sex marriage, to individually vote for the measure.
She says “for me marriage as defined by the law is the marriage of a man and a woman” but she continues to see the interpretation as a “decision of conscience.”



All of Merkel’s potential coalition partners after the September 4 election, including the center-left Social Democrats of her challenger, Martin Schulz, have been calling for same-sex marriage to be legalized.
The measure, which is expected to see legal challenges, also opens the door for gay couples to adopt - which Merkel says she supports.
Archbishop of Berlin, Heiner Koch, said he “regretted” the parliament “gave up the essential content of marriage” in passing the new law. The archbishop heads the family life committee for the German bishops’ conference.
In a statement, he lamented the abandonment of “a differentiated perception of different forms of partnership,” adding that “differentiation is not discrimination.”
Koch also said “marriage did not deserve” to be caught “in the wheels of political tactics,” referring to the snap vote on the issue.
He concluded his statement by saying the bishops will now intensify their efforts to promote “the vitality of the Catholic understanding of marriage,” which he affirmed would be unaffected by the decision in parliament.




LGBT Mega-Donor Reveals Next Goal: ‘Punish the Wicked’ Gay Marriage Opponents


A prominent LGBT activist who has donated more than anyone else to LGBT causes has said that “wicked” people who advocate for laws protecting the religious freedom of conservative Christians to act in accordance with their views on marriage and sexuality need to be “punished.” The Rolling Stone recently published a lengthy profile piece examining the
contributions of Tim Gill, a software entrepreneur who has quietly been at the forefront of the push for same-sex marriage and LGBT rights in the United States over the past several decades. The article explained how Gill, who is gay, has spent over $422 million to advance the LGBT cause and explained the impact that his associated organizations such as the Gill Foundation, Gill Action, and OutGiving have made on LGBT advocacy in America.

DAYS OF LOT: Canadians Choose a Gay, Transgender or Atheist Leader Over an Evangelical


Canadians are more likely to vote for an atheist, gay or transgender person than an evangelical Christian to lead their country, according to a Canadian research institute. The Angus Reid Institute survey, conducted in May with a sample size of 1,533 Canadian adults and a margin of error of plus or minus 2.5 percentage points, found that 85 percent said they would vote for a party that is led by a gay man; 84 percent would back a lesbian; 80 percent, an atheist; and 69 percent, a
transgender. Meanwhile, 65 percent said they would support an evangelical Christian. Evangelicals fared better in the United States, with 72 percent of Americans saying they would vote for an evangelical presidential candidate. Americans are less likely to vote for a gay man or lesbian, at 63 and 62 percent, respectively. And atheists and transgender individuals are near the bottom of the U.S. list, at 52 and 50 percent, respectively. READ MORE




DAYS OF LOT: YouTube channel seeks to teach kids about dressing in “Drag and Transgenderism”


“Queer Kid Stuff,” a YouTube channel geared toward teaching children about sexual preferences, homosexuality, transgenderism, and more, celebrated “Pride Month” by releasing a video talking to kids about people dressing in drag. The producer and host of “Queer Kid Stuff,” Lindsay Amer, created the channel in June 2016 to help children ages 3-7 better understand the LGBT community, according to the show’s website.
“Young queer people need to see themselves represented in their media and that is exactly what I aim to do,” Amer wrote. In the videos, she and her co-host Teddy, a stuffed bear, invite guests on to explain various parts of the LGBT community, including the definitions of “gay,” “gender,” and “intersex.” They also discuss the subject of consent and include a sing-along video to go with it. Additionally, the channel discusses the Disney movie, “Frozen,” and how Elsa is allegedly homosexual.  READ MORE

The United States officially unfurled its new flag today, honoring the brave souls who lost their lives in the war against the Space Invaders. "Let it be known! Never again will our country be terrorized by neatly organized rows of pixelated, two-dimensional critters from space," said President Obama. "And may this serve as a warning to any other foe who might get any ideas -- be they giant centipedes, millipedes, Galagas, or barrel-tossing apes." This will be the first change to the US flag since the 1979, when a white triangle was added to commemorate the spaceship that saved the planet from a storm of asteroids.

          NASA: Researchers Simulate Asteroid Impacts to Help Identify Possible Life-Threatening Events   
When an asteroid struck the Russian city of Chelyabinsk in 2013, the blast from the asteroid’s shock wave broke windows and damaged buildings as far away as 58 miles (93 kilometers), injuring more than 1,200 people.
          Aug 2nd: Venus and Jupiter both struck by massive impacts in less than a fortnight. Is it Earth's turn next?   

It has been revealed today that a massive unexplained white spot has appeared in the cloudy atmosphere of the planet Venus. Scientists are unsure what has caused the spot - some are even speculating on the possibility of volcanic activity - but a massive impact from a comet or asteroid seems the more likely of the two.

This comes just two weeks after a massive scar appeared on Jupiter near its southern pole. The current scientific thinking/speculation suggests that this too may have been caused by a massive asteroid or comet plunging into the largest planet in the solar system.

To date no one has connected the two events. So should we ask the question: Is it possible that there have been some seriously violent collisions taking place in the asteroid belt - which lies between Mars and Jupiter - that have been sending huge asteroids out into both the inner and outer Solar System? And has the Earth been lucky so far in that two of its near neighbours have taken the worst of the impacts?

It's been a while since Earth was struck by a large impact from space. The last big one to strike the Earth's landmass was perhaps on June 30, 1908 when a comet or asteroid measuring some tens of metres across exploded 5-10km in the air over Tungsta, Russia. Although the explosion took place in the air it still had the blast power of a 5-30 megatons bomb (1,000 times that of the Hiroshima bomb) and caused massive damage on the ground.

There's been no such impacts in the age of mass communications and satellite TV networks - which may have created a false sense of security here on Earth. As Californians love to say - regarding the next quake - it may not be long before the next "big one". A sobering thought for a Sunday morning.

          Bishop Finn: He missed his chance to be the next Becket   
You have to look pretty hard to find a Catholic that supports Bishop Finn. Why? Because powerful people in Kansas City have manipulated the media to paint a good man into a demon. The narrative they constructed has been loud and constant, and these powerful people even managed to get a court to go along with them. Great tactics. Worthy of Lenin, Goebbels, Alinsky or the other master propagandists of the 20th century. But while volume, repetition, and a show trial may sway the uninformed, they do not make something false into something true.
For the uninformed (and there are many of them out there who might find this post) Bishop Finn was an activist against pornography, personally devout, and committed to cleaning up the terrible mess Boland and his predecessors left here. He appointed faithful Catholics to key positions...not dissidents who subscribe to the National Catholic Reporter. He recruited and ordained a couple dozen priests who are more likely than the last generation to teach what the Church has always taught (with dozens more in the seminary pipeline) . And in the case of Ratigan (BTW, ordained by Boland, a Bishop fondly remembered by those who orchestrated this shambles), Finn acted prudently: removed him from parish work immediately, did a legal check to to see if it was an obligatory reporting situation (which he was told it wasn't), and restricted his activities. Then the diocese investigated further when Ratigan caused more trouble (he broke his restrictions..he didn't actually do anything that resulted in a third party complaint to the diocese). Then something reportable turned up, and guess what happened? FINN HAD HIM REPORTED.
But of course the truth doesn't matter to those who are serving the Father of Lies.
Alas, Finn was politically naive and he was (unwisely) hesitant to fight back. It is lamentable that he agreed to plead guilty personally, thinking he would protect the Church and diffuse the situation. Of course it made it worse, and no doubt, he gave up the right to defend himself and speak the truth as part of his plea agreement.  Now all you hear it "convicted, convicted, convicted" in the media. No MSM mention of the real facts, much less the plea bargain and the reasons for it. It's absolute calumny. His REAL mistakes were not treating his enemies, and the enemies of the Church, as what they were, and not boldly calling all Catholics to aggressively fight back against the persecution that is underway against the Church.   Bishop Finn should have reread the life of St. Thomas a Becket as this all started.  Then maybe he would have been inspired to stand firm and face his henchmen instead of compromising.  As it happened, the Kansas City chancery will never become a place of pilgrimage like Canterbury was.
Well the lefties have the upper hand now, but they're graying and they're sterile. They have no succession plan. On the other hand, Finn left a legacy that just may eventually overcome them...probably 40 or 50 young, orthodox priests who (more likely than not) teach what the Church has always taught (or most of it) instead of some warmed over self-indulgent pseudo-theology from the 1960s.. And he invigorated and inspired the faithful Catholic laymen in their enclaves in this diocese. The clock is ticking and the enemies of the Church (as well as those unfortunate folks in the cultural proletariat who took the progressive bait) are going to die off with no one to replace them (they contracept, and the few kids they do have won't make any pretense of being Catholic). Meanwhile, the faithful Catholics who supported Finn are steadfast, and their many, many children being raised in the Church and will be steadfast, too. Eventually demographics just may give those faithful Catholics the inevitable victory (unless our Lord gets fed up with us all and sends an asteroid our way (Rev 8:10).
All that I didn't even get in a jab about "humble" Francis, the Pope of "Mercy" who appoints a real creep as a Bishop in Chile even as he blows things up in Kansas City.  You can bet things would have turned out very differently if Cupich were in Finns position, eh?

          Mise à jour : Impact astéroïde pour le 28 septembre 2015 à Houston au Texas ? Censures de la NASA et de Google !   

Merci de relire l'article pour prendre connaissance des mises à jour effectuées avec de nouvelles captures d'écran et les prévisions qui avaient été faites par la NASA. 

Les captures d'écran nous indiquent qu'un impact est prévu pour le 28 septembre prochain et que les plus récents calculs estiment que l'objet a 70% des chances de s'écraser à 100 miles ou 160 kms au sud de Houston au Texas, 45% sur Puerto Rico et 88% dans le Golfe du Mexique. Il est ajouté que des vagues géantes déferleront vers les côtes, d'une hauteur pouvant aller jusqu'à 250 pieds ou 76 m, atteignant 50 miles ou 80 kms à l'intérieur des terres. Le nombre de morts estimé est de 20 à 100 millions de personnes à travers l'Amérique, les Caraïbes, l'Afrique et l'Europe.  

L'objet en question est l'astéroïde 2015 PDC H-5.

Ce qui expliquerait l'opération Jade Helm 15 qui semble s'être terminée le mardi 15 septembre 2015, après 2 mois d'opération et de préparatifs.

Vous rappelez-vous de l’exercice militaire du nom de Jade Helm 15 ? C’est terminé

L’exercice militaire baptisé du nom de Jade Helm 15 a généré tellement de théories du complot cette année qu’elles ont été la cible de moqueries dans des émissions, citant des commentaires de candidats à la présidentielle 2015 et la réaction du gouverneur du Texas. L’inquiétude à la base était la suivante : l’armée a posé les fondations pour implémenter la loi martiale sur le territoire, si ce n’est pas maintenant alors ça sera dans le futur.

L’exercice se terminera silencieusement mardi, cependant. Il s’est déroulé dans des parties du Texas, du Mississippi, de la Louisiane et de la Floride et représente deux mois d’opérations, a dit Suzanne Nagle, une porte-parole pour le Army Special Operations Command qui l’a supervisé.

Impact d’astéroïde ou pas le 28 septembre 2015 à Houston au Texas ?

Quand la Nasa et Google manipulent et censurent les informations concernant un impact d’astéroïde qui aurait lieu à Houston au Texas, le 28 septembre 2015, le jour même où doit se tenir l’assemblée générale de l’ONU à NY et qui devrait rassembler quelques chefs d’états et le Pape.

Nous allons vous demander de tester la censure de Google en tapant dans son moteur de recherche les phrases mentionnées ci-dessous.

Nous savons qu’en les mentionnant sur le blog nous risquons d’être censurés par Google, mais nous voulons en avoir le cœur net après plusieurs censures sur nos recherches.
A vous donc de vérifier si vous subissez la même censure que nous et si la NASA et Google voudraient nous cacher une information capitale.

Voici les phrases à rentrer dans le moteur de recherche de Google :

This webpage is CLASSIFIED.  Please refer to file #7566

The September 28, 2015 Asteroid Impact #CLASSIFIED

 

En sachant que si une information a été enregistrée par Google et même si elle a est supprimée, nous devons la retrouver en cache. Or, même les sites américains qui ont traité de cette information ne sont pas accessibles non plus car Google reconnaît l’adresse IP et vous empêche d’accéder aux dits sites :

Explications :

Nous avons voulu vérifier si les informations données dans un article mis en ligne sur le site de Benoît BENGARNEAU étaient exactes et s’il demeurait encore des traces de l’article mis en ligne par la NASA.

L’article : Est-ce que la NASA a vraiment effacé une information sur un impact d'astéroïde pour le 28 septembre ?

La vidéo qui fait relation à l’article qui a été supprimé sur le site de la NASA pour être remplacé par un autre qui prévoit un impact d’astéroïde pour l’année 2022.

COMMUNIQUÉ SPÉCIAL DU 13 SEPTEMBRE 2015

Les précédents titres de la page modifiée par la suite sur le site de la NASA étaient ceux-ci, avec l’image de l’article ci-dessous :

Suite de la page Internet sur le site de la Nasa.

72g0zk1442072085.jpg

Les captures d'écran nous indiquent qu'un impact est prévu pour le 28 septembre prochain et que les plus récents calculs estiment que l'objet a 70% des chances de s'écraser à 100 miles ou 160 kms au sud de Houston au Texas, 45% sur Puerto Rico et 88% dans le Golfe du Mexique. Il est ajouté que des vagues géantes déferleront vers les côtes, d'une hauteur pouvant aller jusqu'à 250 pieds ou 76 m, atteignant 50 miles ou 80 kms à l'intérieur des terres. Le nombre de morts estimé est de 20 à 100 millions de personnes à travers l'Amérique, les Caraïbes, l'Afrique et l'Europe. 

 

L'objet en question est l'astéroïde 2015 PDC H-5.

Puis les titres de la page sont transformés en ceux-ci :


This webpage does not describe a real potential asteroid impact. The information on this page is fictional and provided only to support an emergency response exercise conducted during the International Academy of Astronautics (IAA) 2015 Planetary Defense Conference in Frascati, Italy, April 13-17, 2015. This is only an exercise. http://neo.jpl.nasa.gov/pdc15/

 

En français : Cette page ne ​​décrit pas un impact réel d'astéroïde potentiel. L'information sur cette page est fictive et fournie seulement pour soutenir un exercice d'intervention d'urgence mené au cours de l'Académie internationale d'astronautique (IAA) 2015 Conférence Planetary Defense à Frascati, en Italie, Avril 13-17 2015. Ceci est seulement un exercice.

          NASA Unveils Plan to Test Asteroid Defense Technique   

Humanity might face one much less doomsday state of affairs if NASA has its method. On Friday, the area company introduced plans to redirect the course of a small asteroid approaching Earth, as a part of the Double Asteroid Redirection Check (DART), in accordance with a NASA press launch. The discharge notes that asteroids hit Earth almost day-after-day, however most are sufficiently small to expend within the environment. However the DART undertaking — a joint effort between NASA and the John Hopkins Utilized Physics Laboratory in Maryland — is for the asteroids which might be too massive to interrupt up

          Mafia game New rpg games   
Playing online Mafia games can be a good way to past time. There are many different Mafia games available on the Internet. They can either be standalone games, or hosted on a social community platform such as MySpace or Facebook. Two very popular Mafia games in MySpace are Bulletproof and Mafia Wars. Playing online Mafia games can be a good way to past time. There are many different Mafia games available on the Internet. They can either be standalone games, or hosted on a social community platform such as MySpace or Facebook. Two very popular Mafia games in MySpace are Bulletproof and Mafia Wars.

The general concept of all Mafia games are similar. You start out by choosing a character, and you start building up the character. The more powerful your character, the easier it is to win fights or wars and become even more powerful. Of course, the ultimate goal is to become the Mafia boss.a href="http://www.bootmafia.net">Mafia Game

Different Mafia games offer different challenges. The games mostly differ on the challenges presented to the player while strengthening the character. For example, if you are playing Mafia Wars, you will find yourself spending lots of time requesting approvals from other members to become part of your family. That is because your character's strength is dependent on the number of members you have in your family.

In the game Bulletproof, this is not necessary. So players can spend more time enjoying the game, and building up their own character instead of focusing on so many other family members. Community members actually prefer this type of game play. Perhaps the constant requesting is wearing them out.

Mafia games require lots of content so that players will have lots of things to do and will find the game enjoyable. Bulletproof has a comprehensive list of of content - jobs, investments, inventory, etc. Such games are constantly evolving, and more content is added on a regular basis to keep the games fresh and exciting. There is always something to look forward to.

If you do not like the idea of playing a Mafia game on a social community network, perhaps you may wish to consider playing Mafia MoFo. The main difference between Mafia Mofo and many of the online games is that it is not hosted on any social community platform. Therefore, you don't have to worry about performance issues on the social community websites.

When it comes to content, Mafia MoFo is way ahead compared to all the other Mafia games. In other words, you will be able to find entertaining activities that you can join in Mafia MoFo that you won't be able to find in any other Mafia game. You can buy drugs at a pharmacy, buy real estate for investment purposes, hire a private investigator, and you can even buy the lottery or invest in the stock market. The character becomes stronger by going to the gym. Resources are earned by working on crime jobs, gambling, and making investments.a href="http://www.bootmafia.net">Mafia Game

Arcade games are an age-old tradition. They have existed as a term since the heyday of the pinball machine, and even earlier in many cases. There are several websites that offer free arcade games including solo player, multi-player, action, adventure, card/casino, racing or skill games. Some of the popular free gaming sites on the Internet are game.co.in, free-games-online.com, freearcade.com, ultimatearcade.com, Cnet’s download.com, and freeclassicgames.com. Arcadenut.com, Funny-games.biz and GameAlbum.com are other great entertainment sites which offer free arcade games.

Free Games (www.free-games.au) is an online directory of free games on the Internet, which also reviews and ranks the most popular games. Per their lists, the five most popular games available on their site are The Mafia Boss, Real Mud - the 4th Coming, Runescape, Aegis and Terraworld. All these games are massively multi-player online role-playing games (MMORPG).

Some popular arcade games from the 1980s are available at Triplets and Us (http://www.tripletsandus.com/80s/80s_games/arcade.htm). These include PacMan, Frogger, Space Invaders, Mario Brothers, Asteroids and Tetris. The site also contains links to several Java arcade emulator game sites.

Flash Games (http://www.t45ol.com/flash-game/arcade-games.php) offers all free arcade games in Flash. The site contains the traditional arcade games in flash format like Space Invaders, Pong, Super Mario Brothers, Tetris, Donkey Kong and Street Fighter.

Arcade RockStar (http://www.arcaderockstar.com/) is a free gaming network where members participate in daily tournaments, and win cool prizes like cell phones, iPods, gift cards and Sony PSPs, among others. Since it is an ad-supported network, the members must be prepared for different forms of ads such as sponsorships, sweepstakes, banners, text links or pop-ups.

          Día del Asteroide recuerda que el peligro de impacto es real   

De los más de 750,000 asteroides que hay en nuestro sistema solar, 1,800 tienen -en términos astronómicos- órbitas "cercanas" a la Tierra, por lo que, sin ser alarmistas, "el peligro de impacto es real", señalan astrónomos, que aseguran que tecnología e investigación son las únicas vías para evitarlo.

Mañana se celebra en todo el mundo el tercer Día del Asteroide, una iniciativa que tiene detrás a científicos, astronautas o músicos -como el guitarrista de Queen y astrofísico, Brian May- y que pretende, entre otras cosas, sensibilizar sobre la importancia de seguir invirtiendo para estudiar y rastrear estos cuerpos celestes.

La fecha elegida recuerda el "evento Tunguska", cuando un asteroide impactó violentamente en Siberia el 30 de junio de 1908 causando graves daños y arrasando 100 kilómetros de masa forestal.

Para conmemorarlo se celebran actos en decenas de lugares del mundo, donde habrá charlas y talleres para aumentar la concienciación del público sobre el peligro del impacto de los asteroides en nuestro planeta, relata Josep María Trigo, astrofísico y uno de los coordinadores del Día del Asteroide en España.

Y es que de los 750,000 asteroides de los que se tiene constancia en nuestro sistema solar, unos 16,000 están catalogados como NEOs (objetos próximos a la Tierra), lo que implica que sus órbitas pasan cerca -siempre en términos astronómicos- de la órbita terrestre.

De estos 16,000 objetos rocosos, unos 875 tienen más de un kilómetro de diámetro, detalla Trigo, líder del Grupo de Meteoritos, Cuerpos Menores y Ciencias Planetarias del Instituto de Ciencias del Espacio de España.

Hay otra catalogación, los Asteroides Potencialmente Peligrosos (conocidos como PHAs), todavía más cercanos a la Tierra. De estos se conocen 1,800, con órbitas cercanas a la Tierra de unos 7.5 millones de kilómetros y con diámetros de más de 150 metros, explica Trigo.

La última vez que se detectó un PHAs fue en abril de este año, el "2014 JO25", de unos 650 metros y que en su máximo acercamiento a la Tierra estuvo a 1.8 millones de kilómetros, una distancia ínfima si se compara con la que separa la Tierra del Sol, que es de alrededor de 150 millones de kilómetros.

Desde 2004 no pasaba un asteroide de este tamaño o mayor "tan cerca" de la Tierra, según la NASA, que señaló que el próximo encuentro conocido de un asteroide de tamaño comparable no se producirá hasta 2027.

Todos estos asteroides los rastrea el Laboratorio de Propulsión Jet de la NASA en California, pero más difícil es evitar su impacto.

Misiones como AIDA (The Asteroid Impact & Deflection Assessment) es lo que pretenden, pero una de sus patas está en "espera".

Se trata de un proyecto de dos partes, una de la NASA y otra de la Agencia Espacial Europea (ESA), que en su último consejo ministerial -diciembre de 2016- no logró reunir por parte de los países miembros el dinero suficiente para financiar su desarrollo.

La misión europea se llama AIM (Asteroid Impact Mission) y la estadounidense DART (Double Asteroid Redirection Test): el objetivo era llegar a Didymos, un sistema binario de asteroides. La parte de la NASA incluye una nave que impactará con uno de los asteroides, impacto que AIM observaría en directo para transmitir los datos.

La ESA insiste en que quiere tener un programa de protección planetaria que estudie la posibilidad de desviar la trayectoria de asteroides, por eso trabaja en una versión simplificada de AIM y más barata, que de ser apoyada por los países se podría lanzar en 2022.

"La ESA quiere hacer esa misión, pero falta que los países decidan financiarla; seguimos trabajando sin tregua para que sea así, pero habrá que esperar a 2019 -próxima ministerial- para conocer la decisión", afirma el español Adriano Campo Bagatin, uno de los participantes en AIDA.

Para Bagatin, en cuanto a la inversión, hay dos realidades muy diferentes: la de EU, donde hay una inversión razonable en este campo -el 90 % de los esfuerzos para descubrir asteroides potencialmente peligrosos se han realizado allí- y la del resto del mundo, incluyendo a Europa, que "no termina de tomarse en serio el asunto y prefiere esperar a que los norteamericanos hagan todo".

Así, el Día del Asteroide, apoyado por la ONU, es una oportunidad para informar y sensibilizar al público general sobre el riesgo que pueden representar y sobre la posibilidad de avanzar hacia una estrategia de mitigación de "la única catástrofe natural quizás evitable con los medios actuales", resume este investigador.

Too many space rocks intersecting Earth's orbit. All it will take is one hitting a sensitive site at a time of heightened international tensions (i.e. anytime). Yesterday (June 30th) is designated Asteroid Day in recognition of the 1908 impact, on June 30th, of whatever hit the Stony Tunguska Region of Siberia. Had the Earth rotated three and a half more hours before impact, the 2000 square kilometers laid waste would not have been remote Siberian taiga, but rather the metropolis of St. Petersburg (where Lenin lived then). Chelyabinsk is a more minor but much more recent impact. What was not reported -- and what most people don't know -- is that we are very fortunate the impact did not take out the nearby Shagol Air Base, a large military installation . . .

          Comment on Ask Ethan: Could We Save The Earth By Migrating It Away From The Sun? (Synopsis) by Omega Centauri   
Can we cheat and transfer orbital energy from other solar system bodies via gravitaional interactions. One suggestion is to manipulate the orbits of asteroids, so that they repeatedly have gravitational encounters with the earth, which transfer some energy and angular momentum from the asteroid to the earth. I suspect this could be potentially much more energy efficient, as we are essentially stealing orbital energy from other objects. I.I. we hack the solar systems orbital mechanics to migrate some planets sunward while out own planet migrate outward? Even better, would it be possible to set up an asteroid in an elliptical orbit such that it gravitationally scatters off both the earth and say Venus, transferring orbital energy from Venus to the earth? If so we could "sacrifice" Venus in order to save our planet. BTW, its not the boiling of the oceans that we need to fear, somewhere around a global surface temp of 50C, the greenhouse effect from water vapor reaches a runaway point. But, we would already be dead by that point. Another issue, is that we could keep the temperature in check for quite a while by scrubbing greenhouse gases, but as the CO2 concentration drops too low for plant life, then we have a problem.

Colliding asteroids with Mars would also increase its mass, which is a good side effect because Mars is significantly smaller than Earth. Colliding comets is even better because they would increase (surface) water content of Mars.
          Comment on Ask Ethan: Could We Save The Earth By Migrating It Away From The Sun? (Synopsis) by Frank   
How about a different problem: Can we move Mars (which is too cold today) closer to Sun to make is more hospitable for human life? Could we slowdown orbital speed of Mars (to get it closer to Sun), by slowly changing orbits of selected asteroids(and comets?) to make them collide with Mars in a controlled way? (And if we continue doing that for hundreds of years.)

Not wanting to sound pessimistic, but don't think we'll be there for that. Cockroaches might be.. but humans.. unlikely. It will take billions of years for the sun to enter the red giant stage where this question becomes relevant. But the largest asteroids.. several kilometers large (like the dinosaur-wiping-ones) are on the frequency of several million years. That gives them the chance to wipe all the mammals on Earth several thousand times over, before anything/anyone notices the sun. Ahh.. time.. though art the cruelest mistress of them all.

What do you do when you can't trump the biggest bogeyman ever invented in catastrophic anthropogenic global warming and the dumb deplorables don't seem to be alarmed enough or the evidence is wearing a bit thin and not cutting through? We even had a speculative post on that as to what would be the next big thing for the doomsayers and a number of possibilities were postulated. Well it seems Friends of the Earth have hit upon the obvious. You go to the other end of the spectrum and start banging on about the microscopic doom facing us all along with the babies and fluffy kittens- http://www.news.com.au/lifestyle/parenting/babies/potentially-dangerous-nanoparticles-found-in-australian-baby-formula/news-story/8cdf31244446a02d95c35b3ee5f27671 They have form- http://www.foe.org.au/whats-story-nanoparticles-sunscreen even though when you read between the lines- "Some industry spokespeople have argued there are nanoparticles in everything and that our body does appear to have defences to deal with these. It's true that any finely ground powder will have a small tail end of nanoparticles. However, it can't be assumed that because our body has the defences to deal with occasional nanoparticles that it can deal with products that are entirely comprised of nanoparticles." Just as it can't be assumed that because a giant asteroid didn't hit us last week it won't tomorrow so naturally the precautionary principle applies as usual. Welcome to nano-doom. Oh and send more grants naturally.

          Australian astronomers launch public search for mysterious 'Planet 9'   

New Delhi: Australian astronomers have announced a public search of the southern skies for a large planet believed to be hiding in the outer reaches of the Solar System.

The researchers at Australian National University (ANU) called on amateur astronomers to help them make the historic discovery of the so called 'Planet 9'.

The project to find 'Planet 9' is led by ANU astrophysicist Dr Brad Tucker, and will require the help of passionate stargazers who could be the first to set eyes on something no human has seen before, Xinhua news agency reported.

 

Under the project, citizen scientists will be allowed to browse hundreds of thousands of images taken by the ANU SkyMapper telescope at Siding Spring. Volunteers are invited to cast an eye over the photos and note any differences, oddities or potential 'Planet 9s'.

"We have the potential to find a new planet in our Solar System that no human has ever seen in our two-million-year history," Tucker said in a statement released on Monday.

"Planet 9 is predicted to be a super Earth, about 10 times the mass and up to four times the size of our planet. It's going to be cold and far away, and about 800 times the distance between Earth and the sun. It's pretty mysterious."

"It's actually not that complicated to find Planet 9. It really is spot the difference. Then you just click on the image, mark what is different and we'll take care of the rest," Tucker said.

"It will be through all our dedication that we can find Planet 9 and other things that move in space."

The ANU said it would release further details about the search for Planet 9 in coming weeks.

Tucker added that the search for Planet 9 would also help lead to the discovery of other mystery objects in space, including asteroids, comets and dwarf planets such as Pluto.

He said if anyone finds a unique mystery object, they will be able to name it - however not after themselves.

"If you find an asteroid or dwarf planet, you can't actually name it after yourself."

"But you could name it after your wife, brother or sister. We need to follow all of the rules set by the International Astronomical Union," Tucker added.

Anyone who helps find the so-called Planet 9 will work with ANU astronomers to validate the discovery through the International Astronomical Union.

Lectura recomendada: Lluís Anyó Sayol, El jugador implicado. Videojuegos y narraciones, Laertes, Barcelona, 2016, 237 páginas.

Si bien está claro que todos los videojuegos son juegos, no puede decirse que todos sean narraciones. De hecho, la relación entre videojuego y narración es conflictiva y a menudo poco clara y, aunque se ha dicho que juego y narración son formas contradictorias, muchos videojuegos de todos los tiempos son relatos que nos cuentan historias y construyen un mundo de ficción donde unos personajes viven aventuras, aman y con mucha frecuencia mueren. Sobre todo, el jugador, ya nunca más espectador pasivo de la narración, participa en ella, y la construye activamente como personaje o narrador haciendo de cada partida un relato siempre distinto. El jugador implicado proporciona la clave para entender el modo en que los videojuegos nos cuentan historias, un modo distinto a como han sido contadas por la literatura y el cine porque en los videojuegos esas historias surgen del mismo jugar, y no existen sin la actividad constante y esforzada de ese jugador implicado.



Este libro, aunque toma los videojuegos en su conjunto, se centra en su carácter narrativo, lo cual impone restringir la mirada hacia determinadas plataformas tecnológicas, videojuegos concretos y métodos de análisis. La cuestión principal que queremos abordar se refiere al modo en que las narraciones se producen en los videojuegos, en qué condiciones lo hacen y qué consecuencias tiene para la noción misma de narración. Centraremos nuestro recorrido en videojuegos cinemáticos y narrativos y en la acción del jugador que en gran parte crea el relato en una forma concreta. Esta diferencia fundamental con respecto a los relatos de la literatura o el cine plantea que los videojuegos cinemáticos y narrativos deben ser pensados en su peculiaridad.

Para ello, proponemos un método para el análisis de los videojuegos y su carácter narrativo, análisis ilustrado con casos de toda la historia de los videojuegos, de La abadía del crimen a Assassin’s Creed, de Asteroids a Borderlands, de Alone in the Dark a Alan Wake, de Counter-Strike a Call of Duty, de Doom a Dead Space, de Espai8 a World of Warcraft, de SimCity a Age of Empires, de Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade a Heavy Rain, de Resident Evil a Dead Island, de The Sims a Grand Theft Auto o de Silent Hill a The Walking Dead.

Миссия Психея (Psyche) долетит к астероиду на 4 года раньше, чем планировалось

Запуск на год раньше запланированной даты позволит зонду достичь астероида значительно быстрее. Космический аппарат с новой траекторией полета планируется к запуску на 2022 год. К астероиду, поверхность которого укрыта никелем и железом, зонд Psyche должен добраться в 2026 году.

«Мы отправили запрос команде по планированию миссий, чтобы узнать, может ли более ранняя дата запуска обеспечить более эффективную траекторию астероиду Psyche, и они проделали просто огромную роботу что бы найти пусковое окно на год раньше запланированный даты», - сказал Джим Грин, директор Отдела планетарной науки в штабе НАСА. «Это позволит нам быстрее выполнить наши задачи в области науки и снизить их стоимость».

НОВАЯ ТРАЕКТОРИЯ

Будучи одобренным для финансирования в январе этого года, Научное управление НАСА планирует, как можно скорее отправить Psyche в далекий космос.

Миссия Psyche (Психея), как и Lucy (Люси) была выбрана в рамках исследовательской программы Discovery mission, главной задачей которой является исследование нашей Солнечной системы с помощью относительно недорогих космических аппаратов НАСА.

Первоначально зонд Lucy (Люси) планировалось запустить в 2021 году после Psyche, который летел изначально в 2023 году. Однако вскоре после выбора миссии в январе 2017 года NASA дала зеленый свет команде Psyche на начало исследований на год раньше.

Новая, более эффективная траектория исключает гравитационный маневр вокруг Земли и позволяет КА находится подальше от Солнца, уменьшая потребность космического корабля в тепловой защите. Единственное, что осталось неизменным, так это гравитационный маневр вокруг Марса, который должен быть выполнен в 2023 году.

Космический аппарат Psyche

Для поддержки новой траектории полета SSL (ранее известная как Space Systems / Loral, LLC) переработала систему солнечных батарей с четырехпанельной компоновки на более мощный пятипанельный x-образный формат. Дополнительная мощность и малые габариты космического корабля позволят Psyche (Психею) достичь своего назначения быстрее, чем более крупный космический корабль.

Астероид Psyche, к которому и отправляется научный космический аппарат, вращается вокруг Солнца между Марсом и Юпитером и почти целиком состоит из никеля и железа. Ученных с научной точки зрения очень сильно интересует состав и строение астероида. Металлические астероиды, такие как Психея, также представляют большой интерес для следующих коммерческих секторов: Планетарные ресурсы, Deep Space Industries. Много кто полагает, что в не так уж и далеком будущем появится возможность добывать некоторые ресурсы из астероидов.

Главной задачей межпланетного зонда Psyche (Психея) заключается в том, чтобы выяснить, является ли астероид ядром какой-то планеты, сколько ему лет, формировался ли астероид аналогично ядру Земли и какова ее поверхность.

В качестве полезной нагрузки на борту КА будут установлены магнитометры, нейтронный спектрометр Гамма-лучей, мультиспектральный сканер.

«Самое большое преимущество [миссии Психея] - отличная траектория, которая вдвое быстрее и экономичнее», - сказал главный исследователь Линди Элкинс-Тантон из Аризонского государственного университета (АСУ) в Темпе. «Мы все очень взволнованы тем, что NASA смогло запланировать запуск на более раннюю дату. Мир увидит этот удивительный металлический мир намного раньше».


          Нужна ли России космическая группировка системы мониторинга за околоземным пространством    

Ученные из института ядерной физики Московского государственного Университета (МГУ) им. Ломоносова собираются создать группировку из трех космических аппаратов по мониторингу за космической обстановкой. Другими словами, КА будут заниматься отслеживанием всех приближающихся к Земле объектов, акцент конечно будет делаться на астероиды и метеориты.

Нужна ли России космическая группировка системы мониторинга за околоземным пространством

Ученные из института ядерной физики Московского государственного Университета (МГУ) им. Ломоносова собираются создать группировку из трех космических аппаратов по мониторингу за космической обстановкой. Другими словами, КА будут заниматься отслеживанием всех приближающихся к Земле объектов, акцент конечно будет делаться на астероиды и метеориты.

На текущий момент в России отсутствует система космического базирования по мониторингу за околоземным пространством. Хотя вдоль всей страны и размещены наземные средства по мониторингу за космическим объектами (в основном это большие телескопы), но как считают некоторые эксперты, это не обеспечивает достаточный режим отслеживания и предупреждения в случае возникновения опасности (приближение метеорита, астероида). Что в принципе и случилось с Челябинским метеоритом диаметром 18 метров. Тогда, в феврале 2013 года в больницу обратились сотни пострадавших. Ущерб по разным оценкам –0,5 млрд. рубл.

Как считает Михаил Панасюк, Директор НИИ Ядерной физики МГУ, наземный сегмент в одиночку не всегда может обеспечить в реальном времени наблюдение космических объектов. Для получения адекватных результатов, подобная система мониторинга (отслеживания) опасных космических объектов должна состоять как с наземного, так и космического сегмента.

На новых космических аппаратах планируют установить средства слежения, которые уже успешно прошли апробацию и тестирование на научном спутнике «Ломоносов».

«На космическом аппарате «Ломоносов» мы впервые в мире провели эксперимент по возможности отслеживания космических объектов с помощью оптической широкоугольной камеры, которая позволяет охватывать большую область космического пространства», сказал Михаил Панасюк.

Впервые об угрозе из космоса заговорили серьезно на международном уровне в середине прошлого столетия. За эти десятилетия, ученные составили каталог астероидов, в том числе и потенциально опасных для нашей планеты, а таких более тысячи.

Учитывая выше сказанное в видео, мы можем сделать вывод, что космическая угроза реальна и она существует. Да каталоги ведутся, да все фиксируется, но адекватного прогноза никто дать пока не может, потому что ты никакой моделью не спрогнозируешь с кокой стороны и когда наблизится очередной метеорит на подобии Тунгуского или больших размеров.

Проблема глобальная и ее решать нужно также глобально…

On Friday, the space agency announced plans to redirect the course of a small asteroid approaching Earth, as part of the Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART), according to a NASA press release. The release notes that asteroids hit Earth nearly every day, but most are small enough to burn up in the atmosphere. But the DART project -- a joint effort between NASA and the John Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory in Maryland -- is for the asteroids that are too big to break up -- those that could have severe consequences for the Earth if they hit.

Heavier-than-air flying machines are impossible.
I have not the smallest molecule of faith in aerial navigation other than ballooning,

The 183rd day of the year; the concatenation of 183 and 184, 183184 is a perfect square. There are no smaller numbers for which the concatenation of two consecutive numbers is square. (Students might seek the next such pair of numbers. They are small enough to be year dates)

The sum of the first 183 primes minus 183 is prime.

183 is the eighth of the 12 year-days which are perfect totient numbers.  (There are only 57 such numbers under 102). [a perfect totient number is a number that is the sum of it's iterated totients, that is, the number of integers smaller than, and relatively prime to 183 + the number smaller than and less than that result, + ... down to one, "For example, start with 327. Then φ(327) = 216, φ(216) = 72, φ(72) = 24, φ(24) = 8, φ(8) = 4, φ(4) = 2, φ(2) = 1, and 216 + 72 + 24 + 8 + 4 + 2 + 1 = 327 " *Wik

1133 First trade security agreement between Pisans and Alibibn Yusof of Morocco.Under such an agreement, Guilielmo, father of Leonardo brought his young son (who would much later be called Fibonacci) to Bugia, where he would learn of the Arabic calculation system that he would introduce to his  homeland in his Liber Abbaci in 1202. *Devlin, The Man of Numbers

In 1698 Thomas Savery was issued British Letters Patent No.356 for what he called "The Miner's Friend; or an engine to raise water by fire" which was the first application of steam power for pumping water. The steam powered pump had no piston. Two years earlier Savery was issued British Letters Patent No.347 for his invention for "Navigation improved; or the art of rowing ships of all rates in calms with a more easy, swift, and steady motion than oars can." ( which involved paddle-wheels driven by a capstan and which was dismissed by the Admiralty following a negative report by the Surveyor of the Navy,Edmund Dummer.)*TIS*Wik

1779 One of the earliest mentions of blackboards in Colonial America was in a letter from John Taylor, a tutor at Queens College (to become Rutgers University)to a graduate student, John Bogart, that he was asking to take over his classes while Taylor was away on military duties. "I have spoken to Mr. Briton to make a blackboard.." *Kidwell, Hastings, & Roberts; Tools of American Mathematics Teaching.

1832 Legendre writes to Nathanial Bowditch regarding his translation of LaPlace's "Mecanique Celeste" ,"Your work is not merely a translation with a commentary; I regard it as a new edition, augmented and improved, and such a one as might have come from the hands of the author himself, ... if he had been solicitously studious of being clear."   LaPlace's classic is a very difficult book, and Biot, who helped him prepare it for printing said that Laplace himself would frequently get lost in following his own line of reasoning  and insert, "il est aise a voir" (It is easy to see). *The Teaching and History of Mathematics in the United States, F. Cajori

1850 Stokes’s theorem made its first appearance as a postscript to a letter from Sir William Thompson (Lord Kelvin) to Stokes. It first appeared publicly as question 8 on the Smith’s Prize exam for 1854. Stokes drew up this competitive exam, which was taken by the best mathematics students at Cambridge University. By the time Stokes died the theorem was universally known as “Stokes’s theorem.” [Spivak, Calculus on Manifolds, p. viii].

1944 Grace Hopper meets Howard Aiken for the first time. Here is her description of the meeting:
Until 1944, I had been a thoroughly respectable mathematician. I had never met a digit, and I wanted nothing to do with digits. I came into the computer business in a unique fashion. I was ordered to the Navy Liaison Officer at Harvard. I left Midshipmen School on Friday, and on Monday morning, 2nd July 1944, I reported to the Navy Liaison Officer, Harvard. He took me by the hand, and led me over to an underground laboratory. I had just acquired one-and-a-half stripes. There stood a large object, with three stripes, who took one look at me and said: "Where the hell have you been?" I spluttered, and said that I had had two days' travel time. He said: "For the last three months." I said: "Midshipmen's School", and he said he had told them it was not necessary. By this time I was practically cowering, of course, but with one-and-a-half stripes, I would stand up straight and listen to three stripes. He waved his hand and said: "That's a computing machine." I said, "Yes, Sir." What else could I say? He said he would like to have me compute the coefficients of the arc tangent series, for Thursday. Again, what could I say? "Yes, Sir." I did not know what on earth was happening, but that was my meeting with Howard Hathaway Aiken. In the long run, he taught me one very important thing. One can always make a mistake once, but it must not be made a second time. That was a very good thing to learn. He also flatly informed me that he had told the Bureau of Naval Personnel not to send him a female. At this point, and over the next few months, I learned another lesson. I could have taken the attitude of showing him, and making him take that back. Instead, I decided it would be far better to learn to work with him. This is a lesson we all need to learn: of not showing people, but learning to work with people. It certainly made a difference in getting things done in the computer field.

1992 On July 2, fearing for the impact that a park service removal of homeowners around Elkmont, Tennessee in the Great Smokey Mountain Natl Park would have on a variety of local fireflys, Lynn Faust wrote a letter to Professor Steven Stogratz, who had recently written a paper in Science Magazine about synchronized flashing of the firelies (lightning bugs) known to exist in Southeast Asia. Ms. Faust's letter would, in Strogatz's words, "shatter a (scientific) myth that had lasted for decades."

2011 Simon Chua, 58, received Australia's B. H. Neumann Award for pioneering efforts in training and honing the talent of young Filipino mathematicians for the past 15 years.
The Australian Mathematics Trust (AMT) bestowed the award to Chua on July 2, 2011. The B. H. Neumann Awards are presented annually for "important contributions over many years to the enrichment of mathematics learning in Australia and its region," according to the AMT.
The award is named in honor of Bernhard H. Neumann, the so-called father of Australian mathematics, who “provided outstanding leadership, support and encouragement for mathematics and the teaching of mathematics at all levels."
Chua, who is president and co-founder of the Mathematics Trainers Guild-Philippines (MTG), is the first Asian to receive the award.
Through the MTG, Filipino students have won numerous medals in math competitions abroad including in China, United States, Singapore, Thailand, Hong Kong and Indonesia.
In 2006, Chua became the first Filipino to win the Paul Erdos Award from the World Federation of National Mathematics Competitions. *MathDL




BIRTHS

1622 Rene-Francoise de Sluse (2 July 1622 – 19 March 1685) born. 1830 “It is true that Fourier is of the opinion that the principle object of mathematics is the public utility and the explanation of natural phenomena; but a scientist like him ought to know that the unique object of science is the honor of the human spirit and on this basis a question of [the theory of] numbers is worth as much as a question about the planetary system.” Jacobi to Legendre. Big Kline, p. 1037. VFR


1842 George Thom (2 July 1842 in Forgue near Huntly, Scotland - 20 Dec 1916 in Aberdeen, Scotland) graduated from Aberdeen and then became Principal of Doveton College in Madras, India. He returned to Scotland as Vice-Principal of Chanonry School Aberdeen and then became Rector of Dollar Institution (later to become Dollar Academy). He held this post for 24 years. He was a founder member of the EMS and became the fifth President in 1886. *SAU


1847 Andrew Gray graduated from Glasgow University and was appointed assistant and secretary to Lord Kelvin. He became Professor of Physics at University College Bangor and then returned to Glasgow as Kelvin's successor. He produced many books and papers in both mathematics and physics.*SAU


1852 Birthdate of William Burnside, whose Theory of Groups (1897, 1911) is now a classic. His suspicion that every group of odd order is solvable was proved in 1962 by Walter Feit and John G. Thompson. *VFR He is known mostly as an early contributor to the theory of finite groups. In 1897 Burnside's classic work Theory of Groups of Finite Order was published. The second edition (published in 1911) was for many decades the standard work in the field. A major difference between the editions was the inclusion of character theory in the second.
Burnside is also remembered for the formulation of Burnside's problem (which concerns the question of bounding the size of a group if there are fixed bounds both on the order of all of its elements and the number of elements needed to generate it) and for Burnside's lemma (a formula relating the number of orbits of a permutation group acting on a set with the number of fixed points of each of its elements) though the latter had been discovered earlier and independently by Frobenius and Cauchy.



1862 Sir William Henry Bragg (2 July 1862 – 10 March 1942) was a pioneer British scientist in solid-state physics who was a joint winner (with his son Sir Lawrence Bragg) of the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1915 for research on the determination of crystal structures. During the WW I, Bragg was put in charge of research on the detection and measurement of underwater sounds in connection with the location of submarines. He also constructed an X-ray spectrometer for measuring the wavelengths of X-rays. In the 1920s, while director of the Royal Institution in London, he initiated X-ray diffraction studies of organic molecules. Bragg was knighted in 1920. *TIS

1885 Émile Henriot (2 July 1885 - 1 February 1961) was a French chemist notable for being the first to show definitely that potassium and rubidium are naturally radioactive.
He investigated methods to generate extremely high angular velocities, and found that suitably placed air-jets can be used to spin tops at very high speeds - this technique was later used to construct ultracentrifuges.
He was a pioneer in the study of the electron microscope. He also studied birefringence and molecular vibrations.
He obtained his DSc in physics in 1912 the Sorbonne, Paris, under Marie Curie. *Wik


1906 Hans Bethe, (July 2, 1906 – March 6, 2005) German-born American theoretical physicist who helped to shape classical physics into quantum physics and increased the understanding of the atomic processes responsible for the properties of matter and of the forces governing the structures of atomic nuclei. Bethe did work relating to armour penetration and the theory of shock waves of a projectile moving through air. He studied nuclear reactions and reaction cross sections (1935-38). In 1943, Oppenheimer asked Bethe to be the head of the Theoretical Division at Los Alamos on the Manhattan Project. After returning to Cornell University in 1946, Bethe became a leader promoting the social responsibility of science. He received the Nobel Prize for Physics (1967) for his work on the production of energy in stars. *TIS



DEATHS

1566 Nostradamus, French astrologer died on this day (b. 1503). I wonder if he predicted THIS in his prophacies.


1591 Vincenzo Galilei ( c. 1520 – 2 July 1591) Italian, music theorist, lutenist and composer, who as the father of Galileo Galilei, adopted experimentation to prove aspects of acoustics, and may thus have influenced his son, Galileo, away from pure, abstract mathematics and towards making experiments and investigation. Vincenzo's discoveries in acoustics included some of the physics of vibrating strings and columns of air. In particular he was the first to show that the ratio of an interval was proportional to string lengths but varied as the square of the tension applied to the strings and as the cubes of volumes of air. He recognized the superiority of equal tempered tuning and compiled a codex of pieces illustrating the use of all 24 major and minor keys as early as 1584.*TIS


1613 Bartholomeo Pitiscus (August 24, 1561 – July 2, 1613) was a Polish theologian who first coined the word Trigonometry. *SAU Pitiscus achieved fame with his influential work written in Latin, called Trigonometria: sive de solutione triangulorum tractatus brevis et perspicuus (1595, first edition printed in Heidelberg), which introduced the word "trigonometry" to the English and French languages, translations of which had appeared in 1614 and 1619, respectively. It consists of five books on plane and spherical trigonometry. Pitiscus is sometimes credited with inventing the decimal point, the symbol separating integers from decimal fractions, which appears in his trigonometrical tables and was subsequently accepted by John Napier in his logarithmic papers (1614 and 1619).*Wik

1621 Thomas Harriot (Oxford, c. 1560 – London, 2 July 1621) died of a cancerous ulcer on his left nostril. While in America in 1586 he learned to “drink” tobacco smoke from the Indians. This probably makes him the earliest recorded tobacco fatality. He is best known for his contributions to algebra, including the invention of the symbol for less than, \( \lt \) and greater than, \( \gt \) . He might have adopted this symbol from a decoration on an Indian’s back. See C. L. Smith, “On the origin of ‘<’ and ‘>’,” The Mathematics Teacher, 57(1964), 479–481 for a picture of this Indian.*VFR
He also is credited with the mathematical symbol for "therefore" \(\therefore \) His executors posthumously published his Artis Analyticae Praxis on algebra in 1631; Nathaniel Torporley was the intended executor of Harriot's wishes, but Walter Warner in the end pulled the book into shape. It may be a compendium of some of his works but does not represent all that he left unpublished (more than 400 sheets of annotated writing). It isn't directed in a way that follows the manuscripts and it fails to give the full significance of Harriot's writings.*Wik He introduced a simplified notation for algebra and his fundamental research on the theory of equations was far ahead of its time. He was able to solve equations, even with negative or complex roots. However, he published no mathematical work in his lifetime. (Artes analyticae praxis, posthumous, 1631). Especially early in his career, he worked on navigation for his patron Walter Raleigh. Harriot carried out extensive telescopic observations of the satellites of Jupiter and of sunspots. When investigating optics, he discovered the sine law and measured the refractive indices of 13 different substances. He investigated free motion and motion resisted in air, and ballistic curves.*TIS Thomas Harriot was an English mathematician who did outstanding work on the solution of equations, recognising negative roots and complex roots in a way that makes his solutions look almost like a present day solution.*SAU
The solution of quadratic equations by the method of factoring was often referred to as Harriot's method because of his introduction of the method in his writing.
It is not possible today to find Harriot's grave. Although he was buried near the altar of St Christopher le Stocks in London,the church was destroyed in the great fire of 1666. There is a plaque in the entrance hall of the Bank of England, which is close to the site of Harriot's grave. It reproduces the original Latin wording of his epitaph.(p474) An English translation would read:
Stay, traveler, lightly tread;
Near this spot lies all that was mortal
Of that most celebrated man Thomas Harriot.
He was that most learned Harriot . . .
Who cultivated all the sciences and excelled in all . . .
A most studious searcher after truth . . .

1644 William Gascoigne (1612 – 2 July 1644) was an English astronomer, mathematician and maker of scientific instruments from Middleton, Leeds who invented the micrometer. He was one of "nos Keplari" a group of astronomers in the north of England who followed the astronomy of Johannes Kepler which included, Jeremiah Horrocks and William Crabtree. Gascoigne's micrometer is shown at right from a drawing by Hooke. Gascoigne, was working on a Keplerian optical arrangement when a thread from a spider’s web happened to become caught at exactly the combined optical focal points of the two lenses. When he looked through the arrangement Gascoigne saw the web bright and sharp within the field of view. He realized that he could more accurately point the telescope using the line as a guide, and went on to invent the telescopic sight by placing crossed wires at the focal point to define the centre of the field of view. Gascoigne died at the Battle of Marston Moor, Yorkshire, *Wik

1874 Gouverneur Emerson American physician, statistician and agriculturalist who prepared a series of tables of deaths and causes in Philadelphia, during thirty years from 1807. These showed, for example, the excessive mortality of males during childhood. He began practice in Philadelphia on 4 Aug 1820, where yellow fever broke out a few weeks later, with 73 deaths by that fall. Emerson recorded cases, dates, locations, and outcomes. He concluded no current medical treatments was especially effective. When smallpox reappeared there, with 325 deaths in 1824, Emerson drafted a bill for control measures. There were only 6 cases of smallpox in the city in 1825, and 3 in 1826. In retirement, he turned to peach culture, and studied phosphate and guano fertilizers. *TIS

1947 Nikolai Grigorievich Chebotaryov (15 June [O.S. 3 June] 1894 – 2 July 1947) proved his density theorem generalising Dirichlet's theorem on primes in an arithmetical progression*SAU

1963 Seth Barnes Nicholson (November 12, 1891 – July 2, 1963) was an American astronomer best known for discovering four satellites of Jupiter. As a graduate student at the University of California, while photographing the recently- discovered 8th moon of Jupiter with the 36-inch Crossley reflector, he discovered a 9th (1914). During his life career at Mt.Wilson Observatory, he discovered two more Jovian satellites (1938) and the 12th (1951), as well as a Trojan asteroid, and computed orbits of several comets and of Pluto. His main assignment at Mt. Wilson was observing the sun with the 150-foot solar tower telescope, and he produced annual reports on sunspot activity and magnetism for decades. With Edison Pettit, he measured the temperatures of the moon, planets, sunspots, and stars in the early 1920s. *TIS

2002 Daniel Chonghan Hong (3 Mar 1956; 2 Jul 2002 at age 46) Korean theoretical physicist specializing in statistical physics and nonlinear dynamic physics, who with colleague Hugo Caram, originated the void diffusing-void model of granular flow, which is recognized as an effective theoretical treatment for a broad range of dynamical phenomena in granular media. In general, his work ranged from percolation network, viscous fingering, granular flows to traffic equations. He studied and taught in America from 1981, and wrote articles for popular magazines on various topics. He died at the young age of 46 of cardiac arrest. *TIS

          Weaponization of NASA   
Pestular Croaker: The executive branch ordered today to make NASA a military agency instead of a civilian one. Astronauts will now be part of a sixth branch of the military called the US Space Corps. VP Pence is to be the Commander in Chief of the new military branch.

In the speech, attended by Buzz Aldrin today the President spoke the following words:

"The human soul yearns for discovery. Our journey into space will not only make us stronger and more prosperous, but will unite us behind grand ambitions and bring us all closer together. Wouldn’t that be nice? Can you believe that space is going to do that?"

We can see now how this fits into the other plans announced recently (and documented here with factual articles from reputable sources) to send nukes to Mars and to attack Mars with a giant asteroid that will be redirected to Mars using a deep space mission involving a space ship called a "Shepherd".

It’s International Asteroid Day!

(Large Asteroid Impact Simulation)

Asteroid Day (also known as International Asteroid Day) is an annual global event that aims to raise awareness about asteroids and what can be done to protect the Earth, its families, communities, and future generations. Asteroid Day is held on the anniversary of the June 30, 1908 Siberian Tunguska event, the most harmful known asteroid-related event on Earth in recent history.

          Preocupación mundial: Asteroides, las montañas que caen del cielo   
 (Imagen ilustrativa de un asteroide acercándose a la Tierra).


El Día del Asteroide, una conmemoración celebrada este 30 de junio, avisa sobre la necesidad de prepararse para evitar el impacto en la Tierra de un asteroide.

30 JUNIO, 2017: Hace unos 65 millones de años, un asteroide de 10 o 15 kilómetros de longitud impactó en la Tierra, a una velocidad de entre 57.000 y 115.000 kilómetros por hora. El impacto creó en cuestión de minutos un cráter de 180 kilómetros de diámetro, licuó la superficie y levantó enormes cordilleras. La explosión produjo un devastador megatsunami y los fragmentos del choque provocaron una lluvia de fuego y rocas. El polvo cubrió la atmósfera y extendió la oscuridad por el planeta durante semanas o meses. El impacto dio lugar a la extinción masiva del Cretácico-Terciario, en la que desaparecieron el 75 por ciento de las especies de animales y plantas de la Tierra, incluidos los dinosaurios.


Los registros astronómicos y geológicos demuestran que es cuestión de tiempo que algo así vuelva a ocurrir. No será mañana ni probablemente en los próximos 200 años, pero acabará pasando. Por eso, algunos astrónomos temen que el ser humano no esté haciendo lo suficiente para evitar un futuro cataclismo. Es la idea que está detrás de una campaña internacional de sensibilización conocida como Día del Asteroide (Asteroid Day), que este 30 de junio avisa del peligro que se cierne sobre el planeta.

La conmemoración, que el año pasado recibió el respaldo de Naciones Unidas al declararla como día internacional, será celebrada con 700 eventos en 190 países y un debate entre expertos que podrá seguirse en directo. Además, Discovery Channel emitirá varios documentales sobre el tema y estrenará “Cómo sobrevivir a un asteroide”, que ha sido rodado con miembros de la campaña.

Cada día, a la Tierra llegan unas 100 toneladas de asteroides. La mayoría son pequeños granos o guijarros, y quizás dos o tres de ellos tienen el tamaño de una pelota de fútbol. Pero lo más preocupante es que es cuestión de tiempo que seamos golpeados por uno mucho mayor capaz de causar graves daños en la superficie”, ha explicado ex astronauta del programa Apolo de la NASA.

(Un destacado astrofísico alerta de que el próximo impacto de un asteroide sobre el planeta Tierra es simplemente ‘cuestión de tiempo’.)

“Anoche, la Tierra fue golpeada miles de veces”, ha explicado Rusty Schweickart, exastronauta del programa Apolo de la Administración Nacional de la Aeronáutica y del Espacio (NASA, por sus siglas en inglés) y miembro del Día del Asteroide, invitado a un debate telefónico organizado por Discovery Channel. “Cada día, a la Tierra llegan unas 100 toneladas de asteroides. La mayoría son pequeños granos o guijarros, y quizás dos o tres de ellos tienen el tamaño de una pelota de fútbol. Pero lo más preocupante es que es cuestión de tiempo que seamos golpeados por uno mucho mayor capaz de causar graves daños en la superficie”, dice.

Más allá de la amenaza de enormes asteroides capaces de acabar con la humanidad, los precursores de la campaña han alertado del riesgo real que suponen objetos mucho más pequeños, de decenas o centenares de metros, pero también mucho más abundantes en las órbitas próximas a la Tierra. Un choque con ellos podría destruir ciudades o regiones enteras.

William Finnegan ha visto mucho mundo como escritor, periodista y surfista. Nacido en Nueva York en 1952, se crió entre Los Ángeles y Hawái, donde pronto comenzó a explorar el mar subido en una tabla. Pero no quiso contarlo hasta hace un par de años, cuando publicó “Años salvajes” (Libros del Asteroide), sus memorias que en 2016 le valieron el Premio Pulitzer en el apartado de mejor biografía.

ENERGIAS DE JULHO 2017 - DESMORONAMENTO DAS LINHAS DE TEMPO DA TERRA 3D VERSUS ANCORAMENTO DAS FREQUÊNCIAS 5D


Por Natalia Alba

Meus amados,

Começamos agora um novo mês energético, e embora como humanos, gostemos de fazer tudo de modo linear e compartimentado, julho é uma continuação do que vimos vivenciando desde o início deste ano, à medida que estamos nos realocando em um espaço dimensional mais elevado, enquanto as linhas de tempo da 3D continuam desmoronando, com intensidade aumentada devido ao próximo solstício, cujas energias, junto ao eclipse – em agosto – vão nos acompanhar até setembro, quando a separação final da velha Terra 3D será palpável.

Muitos dentre vocês podem estar sentindo como se estivessem prestes a experimentar a “morte” física, conforme disse muitas vezes. 

Essa não é uma morte literal, mas, enquanto trabalhamos na recuperação da alma, e começamos a incorporar níveis mais elevados da consciência, nosso antigo eu começa a se desvanecer, e nosso ser egóico sentirá nossa evolução natural como uma morte literal, porque teme a mudança e o desconhecido. 

Neste momento, principalmente para aqueles que estão começando a caminhar nessa jornada, podem sentir depressão e ansiedade, entre muitas outras sensações, como o resultado do trabalho interno de purificação do antigo, que permanece internamente, e que continuará conforme vocês continuam a despertar o seu DNA.

Permaneçam sempre na presença luminescente de sua alma, amados. Permaneçam em seu coração superior e na sua essência amorosa, quando os desafios e o que vocês virem no seu entorno atingirem o seu ser benevolente. 

Tudo é necessário para que os outros vejam, experimentem o que eles precisam, conforme nós, certa vez, também tivemos essa oportunidade. Vimos esperando, nos preparando para este avanço final, não apenas por alguns meses ou anos, mas por eons. 

Agora não é o momento de olhar para trás, agora não é o momento de se arrepender de escolhas passadas ou presentes, agora é o momento de assumir responsabilidades, reivindicar nossa soberania e caminhar como as Sementes da Nova Terra em que estamos nos transformando.

É exatamente neste momento, quando mais precisamos de ajuda para curar, que começamos este novo mês de julho com o curador cósmico, como eu o chamo, ou Quíron, passando ao movimento retrógrado em primeiro de julho. 

Essa frequência do asteroide vai nos ajudar a trazer cura e purificação profundas – se nos prepararmos para confrontar nossas sombras. Porque algumas almas, e também coletivamente, estarão enfrentando todos os conflitos internos, temores e crenças limitadas que estão profundamente enterradas em si mesmos, e que precisam ser desfeitos, antes que possam começar sua jornada única de integração e evolução da alma.

No momento em que estabelecemos a intenção consciente de ascender, a nossa Alma e Eu Unificado, desencadeiam uma série de eventos, situações e encontros anímicos necessários para que nos conscientizemos do que precisamos curar e purificar, antes que possamos sustentar uma frequência superior e começar a fazer descer mais luz de nossa Presença EU SOU. 

Quando isso ocorre, é uma bênção disfarçada, porque, mesmo que enfrentemos um período desafiador, tudo está nos levando para onde realmente desejamos estar.

Toda situação que o nosso eu inferior rotula como “negativa” é algo perfeitamente planejado, previamente, para que possamos aprender o perdão, a compaixão e a integridade. 

O mais importante de tudo, essas situações rebaixam nossas antigas características da personalidade tridimensional, bem como suas estruturas limitadas, para possibilitar que finalmente incorporemos um nível de consciência superior.

Sim, amados, neste momento, aqueles que caminham conscientemente, e sabem o que está acontecendo nos reinos invisíveis, reconhecem que há uma batalha para controlar a Terra, porque as forças sombrias estão reticentes em baixar a guarda e permitir que possamos ascender. 

Visto que não estão sendo bem-sucedidos, haverá uma maior intenção em manipular – em um nível inconsciente – para exercer mais controle.

Não é hora de concentrar-se no que é insustentável – em frequência – mas em acolher nossa nova relação com a Fonte e nos manter vibrando do modo mais elevado possível, permanecendo em nossa luz, abraçando a liberdade, crendo em Todos como uma Família de Alma, e apoiando essa transição, sendo em todos os momentos testemunhas compassivas da própria experiência humana e a de Todos.

Como confirmação das energias criativas, abundantes e expansivas que julho traz, este mês, na numerologia, é um número universal 8 (17 reduzido). 

Temos uma mensagem de criatividade, recursos ilimitados e expansão nesta etapa de transição. Porque isso é o que nós, como almas, estamos experimentando, uma expansão infindável em direção à reunificação com Tudo o Que É.

A frequência que provém do número mágico e infinito, 8, nos dá a coragem de dar à luz aos nossos mundos interiores e ancorá-los no físico. Este mês nos mostrará onde criamos a plenitude e onde há ausência disso. É uma oportunidade de criar a síntese em lugar da separação, e trazer amor para todos os nossos aspectos e vida física para manifestar uma realidade abundante.

Se vocês desejarem mais abundância em sua vida, de alguma forma possível, mas não estão amando, respeitando e honrando quem vocês são, e reconhecendo que fazem o suficiente, então, vocês não vão poder cercar-se da abundância que vocês já são. 

Este é um mês para dominar o nosso criador interno, bem como manifestar com a frequência nova e mais elevada, que alguns de nós já está integrando e com que se está trabalhando.

Observem onde vocês criam limitações. Todas as limitações se originam das mentes humanas. 

Reparem quando tiverem um forte desejo de alma para tornar tangível, e o seu eu inferior lhes diz que vocês não têm o suficiente, porque a abundância é infinita, assim como a natureza da sua essência. 

Toda vez que vocês se rebaixam, toda vez que vocês se dizem que algo não é possível, vocês estão criando mais falta.

Toda vez que vocês permanecem altivos e seguros, e caminham nesta Terra em profunda comunhão com o Divino interno, sabendo que vocês sempre têm tudo de que necessitam, amando cada simples coisa que estão destinados a enfrentar, sem qualquer julgamento, vocês estão amando, e, portanto, criando abundância. A escolha do que vocês precisam experimentar neste momento é sempre sua.

Resultado de imagemEm um mês regido por Leão, a partir de 22 de julho, o número 8 também é representado pela ígnea carta de tarô da força – uma mulher segurando as mandíbulas de um leão (Sol) – é a força física ou a força interior que só pode vir por meio do poder do amor, da sabedoria e do equilíbrio? 

Essa é uma perfeita representação da deusa sábia do amor abraçando o ardente leão, acalmando a natureza selvagem dele com a sua essência amorosa.

A mensagem, para mim, é que tudo pode ser feito pelo poder do amor, tudo pode ser modificado e desfeito quando o eu humano, finalmente, se render a um Poder Superior, que está contido em todas as coisas e em todos os seres, e deixar que ele conduza o caminho, em vez de forçar/moldar nossa realidade com o nosso eu egóico, que pode imaginar somente uma pequena e limitada visão do que está acontecendo realmente.

Em um nível cósmico, julho começa com Vênus, o planeta do amor e da abundância, entrando em Gêmeos, no dia 4 de julho, e, no dia seguinte, também temos Júpiter fazendo um quincúncio com Netuno. 

No turbilhão que estamos sentindo fortemente, esses alinhamentos cósmicos vêm testar nossa fé, fazendo-nos lembrar da importância que a expressão criativa tem – nesta etapa de nossa jornada – e compartilhar quem nós somos, da nossa maneira exclusiva.

Ambos os eventos virão nos convidar a alcançar um estado de ser mais elevado, baseado na confiança que temos no divino, naquilo que ainda está por vir. 

Vocês têm fé no seu aspecto unificado que orquestra tudo de uma forma perfeita para vocês? 

Ou duvidam de si mesmos e da Inteligência Superior que habita em cada decisão e ação que vocês tomam? 

Vocês estão dispostos a expandir-se de novas maneiras, que vão beneficiar a Todos? 

Ou vocês vivem na falta, com medo de desperdiçar o que é infinito por natureza? 

Vocês estão vivendo como seres soberanos, que sabem que tudo está funcionando sempre a nosso favor? 

Ou estão ainda deixando que seres e circunstâncias exteriores ditem a sua realidade?

Como sempre, a fim de crescer, ascender e criar novamente, deve-se arriscar tudo o que se teme perder. 

A questão é: 

Vocês estão preparados para deixar para trás ou desfazer tudo o que não estiver alinhado com quem vocês se tornaram e avançar, com alegria e em profunda gratidão, por esse passo mais elevado? 

Ou vocês ainda estão escolhendo viver na dualidade, com medo do desconhecido? 

Nunca perdemos nada, senão nossas ilusões e expectativas humanas. Na verdade, carregamos tudo internamente – para onde quer que vamos – e com o tempo divino, nos reuniremos ao todo novamente.

No dia 5 de julho, temos Mercúrio, o regente da comunicação, entrando no ardente Leão. Como vocês utilizam a sua autoridade, quando permanecem altivos e seguros em suas crenças e expressam os seus sentimentos? 

Vocês a utilizam sob uma perspectiva egóica para controlar/forçar/impor sua vontade aos outros? Ou vocês utilizam sua autoridade – poder interior – como seres soberanos, para comunicar firmemente sua verdade, utilizando apenas a força e o respeito do amor para expressar com integridade os seus verdadeiros sentimentos? 

Há uma tênue linha entre o verdadeiro eu capacitado e soberano, e a eterna batalha egoica em ser mais do que os outros, em querer estar sempre certos – apegados às velhas crenças – e utilizar o poder para manipular aqueles que ainda não se conscientizaram do poder deles.

Em 9 de julho, temos uma poderosa Lua Cheia, no grau 17 de Capricórnio. Essa é uma Lua que dará ênfase a tornar tangíveis os desejos de nossa alma, porque a essência yang (sic), de terra, de Capricórnio, nos lembra de trazer nossas visões internas para o físico com determinação, em vez de apenas confiar nos sonhos e deixar que os nossos objetivos desapareçam no ar, visto que é neste plano denso onde nossos desejos podem realmente ser usufruídos.

Todavia, para conseguir dar à luz as visões da nossa alma no físico, tem-se que destruir os velhos mundos, renovar-se, e a partir desse espaço puro de profunda comunhão com a nossa alma, reconstruir nossa nova realidade. 

É por isso que essa Lua capricorniana, junto a Marte, fará conjunção com Plutão, para nos fazer recordar da importância que tem, desfazer o velho e nos regenerar, antes de acessar uma nova linha de tempo.

Essa é uma dádiva cósmica para que possamos dominar o modo como utilizamos esse novo influxo de energia, visto que estamos aqui para aprender a nos lembrar de como administrar essa poderosa força interior, que cria mundos. 

Isso não é para que se sintam sobrecarregados, mas para que a utilizem de modo sábio, libertando-se de todas as limitações que os impedem de ser quem vocês são realmente, e tecer a sua preciosa e única jornada.

No dia 20 de julho, começamos a ter muitos planetas passando pelo fogoso Leão. Temos o guerreiro, Marte, entrando em Leão, no dia 20 de julho, e no dia 22, o Sol finalmente passará para o signo de Leão, vindo de Câncer. 

Essa energia poderosa culminará com uma poderosa Lua Nova no grau zero de Leão, para nos exaltar, nos lembrar para onde estamos nos dirigindo, que é apenas o início de um Novo Ciclo de possibilidades infinitas e novas maneiras de criar nossa experiência terrena.

Essa Lua leonina nos impelirá para queimar os remanescentes do velho e começar a construir uma vida estável e próspera, ao sermos purificados, tanto em nível interno, quanto celular. 

Como almas ascendentes, nosso estado de ser será um de mudança consciente constante, visto que, quanto mais incorporamos um nível mais elevado de consciência, mais nos conscientizamos da verdadeira natureza de nossa existência, que é sempre de movimento contínuo, se regenerando, sempre buscando novos horizontes para experimentar.

Este é um Mês que nos traz a oportunidade de dominar nosso criador interno. Criar no físico se faz por meio de uma comunhão profunda com a nossa alma, em um espaço em que os temores não habitam, apenas a constante manifestação de nosso Eu Divino e os seus recursos ilimitados. 

Se, em vez de concentrar toda a sua intenção consciente nos seus medos, vocês pudessem utilizar o seu poder para viver na possibilidade, no momento presente, em amor, em alegria, em abundância, que já estão os envolvendo, pode não ser fácil, mas em um curto período, toda a sua realidade se ajustará à usa frequência. Essa é a dádiva cósmica que este mês nos oferece. 

Vocês vão utilizá-lo sabiamente?

Como vocês já sabem, eu não considero nenhum aspecto como sendo menor na Criação. Assim, em 29 de julho, temos Urano em um semi-sextil com Quíron. Urano, o chamado planeta da rebelião, provoca a mudança que realmente desejamos fazer, mas que o nosso eu inferior ainda está reticente em pôr em prática, por causa do medo da mudança e da liberdade que advém disso. 

Urano, em semi-sextil com Quíron, trará cura profunda, se estivermos dispostos a confrontar aquilo que nos limita e nos abrirmos para vivenciar a verdadeira libertação.

O processo de autocura e liberação nunca termina, porque toda vez que incorporamos um nível mais elevado de consciência, temos que descartar determinadas crenças que não estão alinhadas com uma mais elevada, e assim por diante, porque a nossa jornada em direção à Fonte deve ser combinada com a contínua liberação de nosso antigo eu e suas meias verdades e limitações.

Para nos acalmar, principalmente após toda a intensidade das energias ígneas deste mês, encerramos esse poderoso e abundante mês, com Vênus entrando no amoroso signo de Câncer. Essa é uma bênção para todos que desejam criar novas reuniões de alma, que estejam alinhadas com quem eles se tornaram. 

Vênus se sentirá em casa quando estiver em Câncer, isso vai nos desafiar a não buscar segurança em nossos relacionamentos, mas internamente, porque estamos constantemente mudando, assim como nossos companheiros de alma, e nada permanecerá como seguro, porque isso estará somente ocorrendo se a nossa realidade for linear e fixa, embora possamos ainda ter essa visão, não há nada fixo na Criação.

É um momento para deixar brilhar a sua essência amorosa e única, e começar a ancorar-se na 5D, para escolher brilhar a luz que vocês conduziram profundamente dentro de vocês, oculta durante eons. 

Este não é o momento de habitar na escuridão, mas de acolhê-la e amá-la como igual, porque estamos agora nos tornando o que sempre fomos, seres de amor e luz unificados, passando da dualidade para a consciência da unidade. 

É nesse momento que vocês serão convidados a transitar pelo desconhecido, na possibilidade, na alegria e no serviço ao Todo.

O tempo de usar a máscara de quem vocês não são, o tempo de ceder o seu poder para desculpas e vícios, a fim de amainar sua dor ou culpar os outros, terminou. 

Porque vocês escolheram a liberdade e a autenticidade – amar e aceitar tudo como é, e saltar para o desconhecido, com o seu coração amplamente aberto, sabendo e confiando que o melhor ainda está por vir, e perceber que todo o tempo em que vocês estiveram trabalhando para acessar um nível mais elevado de consciência, valeu a pena, foi necessário e muito apreciado por todos na Criação.

Com amor, luz e serviço, como vocês todos estão também.

Dai Paolo... un articolo per un paio di typo... non è un pò troppo? Anyway, entriamo un pò nel dettaglio. L'articolo dice cose abbastanza giuste, non è che fa affermazioni del tipo "gli Illuminati hanno sviluppato una tecnologia che consente di deviare asteroidi". Poi nella prima frase ripete il titolo ed è corretto. Infatti dice "la terra sarà distrutta da un asteroide". Lo si può leggere da una url che ho ripreso dal tuo sito

          Happy Asteroid Day! A conversation about peaceful, global scientific collaboration   

Today is the 3rd annual Asteroid Day, and the first to be presented under the auspices of the United Nations, with live global broadcasts raising awareness about asteroids

Today, more than 1,000 local events in around 200 countries are being organised to celebrate Asteroid Day. Sanctioned by the United Nations in 2016, it is a global day of education to raise awareness about asteroids.

In addition to the local events, a day-long broadcast will be transmitted from around the world, with a six-hour live stretch coming from Luxembourg. This is where I will be, sharing the hosting duties with Professor Brian Cox from 11am BST. You can watch the whole thing in the video embedded above.

          Lab notes: staggeringly profitable scientific publishing, a skull cult and Asteroid Day   

It is an industry like no other, with profit margins to rival Google – and it was created by one of Britain’s most notorious tycoons: Robert Maxwell. Is the staggeringly profitable business of scientific publishing actually bad for science? While thinking about scalping: fragments of three ancient skulls found in Turkey have all the hallmarks of being carved with flint after being defleshed first. Archaeologists believe this is more evidence that a neolithic “skull cult” embraced rituals around the heads of the dead. To think, if the cult were to exist in the future rather than 11,000 years ago, there might not be any skulls lying around for them to worship because we could all be alive! This is because scientists have argued there is no compelling evidence that we are approaching an upper limit on our mortality, in response to work published in Nature that concluded “maximum longevity has hit a ceiling of 114.9 years”. Here’s wishing a long and happy career for the robotic yellow submarine Boaty McBoatface, whose successful maiden voyage saw it gather “unprecedented data” from one of the deepest and coldest ocean regions on Earth, Orkney Passage in Antarctica.

          Fragmentos de asteroide orbitan en torno a una estrella de la muerte   
Para celebrar el primer día oficial de los asteroides, a lo largo del fin de semana republicaremos artículos sobre estos pequeños cuerpos con la finalidad de aprender más sobre ellos.


El quinto artículo que he elegido es: "Fragmentos de asteroide orbitan en torno a una estrella de la muerte"

Crédito: CfA/Mark A. Garlick
WD 1145 + 017, una estrella enana blanca situada unos 570 años luz de la Tierra, llamó la atención de los astrónomos el año pasado, cuando detectaron evidencias de que un objeto rocoso estaba siendo destrozado, como si de una estrella de la muerte se tratara. Fue el primer descubrimiento de un cuerpo paleontológico en tránsito observado en una enana blanca.

Ahora, un equipo de astrónomos liderados por Saul Rappaport, del Instituto de Tecnología de Massachusetts (MIT), revelan que este misterioso objeto es un asteroide y que sus fragmentos están a la deriva alrededor del remanente estelar.

 Rappaport, junto con Andrew Vanderburg, del Centro Harvard-Smithsoniano para Astrofísica en Cambridge, Massachusetts, fueron parte de un equipo internacional que detectó los cambios en el brillo de WD 1145 + 017 gracias a los datos aportados por el telescopio Kepler de la NASA. Su investigación determinó que "algo" transitaba a la enana blanca, por lo que recabaron datos para descubrir la verdadera naturaleza de dichos objetos.


Gracias a la colaboración de cuatro observatorios de astrónomos aficionados, que contaban con telescopios con aberturas desde los 28 hasta los 80 centímetros, se recabaron más datos de WD 1145 + 017 y su entorno mediante observaciones fotométricas que se llevaron a cabo entre el 1 de noviembre de 2015 y el 21 de enero de 2016.

El equipo informa de la detección de 237 eventos de tránsito, más específicamente, variaciones en el flujo de luz producidas probablemente porque el polvo de los cuerpos que orbitan a la enana blanca bloquea su luz. Los datos indican que el objeto está siendo destrozado por la fuerza de gravedad de la enana blanca y está en proceso de vaporización por la luz estelar. Es decir, se ha localizado un cuerpo principal que orbita en torno a la enana marrón cada 4,5 horas del cual se desprenden fragmentos que alcanzan órbitas de periodo más corto.

Los científicos fueron capaces incluso de determinar la masa del objeto. El asteroide posee aproximadamente el 10 por ciento de la masa del planeta enano Ceres.

La velocidad de liberación de los fragmentos se estimó en una sola pieza cada pocos días. Los cálculos realizados muestran que si el nivel de actividad actual se mantiene, la vida útil esperada del asteroide sería de unos 5.000 años.

Los científicos siguen estudiando el sistema a la espera de reunir más datos.

          El asteroide "hueso" y sus dos lunas   
Para celebrar el primer día oficial de los asteroides, a lo largo del fin de semana republicaremos artículos sobre estos pequeños cuerpos con la finalidad de aprender más sobre ellos.


El cuarto artículo que he elegido es: "El asteroide "hueso" y sus dos lunas"


El asteroide (216) Kleopatra ha llamado la atención de los astrónomos desde hace mucho tiempo, porque su brillo es muy variable. Pero parece ser, que cada vez que alguien lo mira con un nuevo instrumento, ese interés aumenta. En el año 2000 se constató que tenía forma de "hueso de perro" , y  en 2008 se descubrió que tenía dos lunas. Esta semana se ha publicado un artículo en Ícaro, de Pascal Descamps, Franck Marchis, y otro 17 coautores, que utilizan las mediciones de las órbitas de los satélites para determinar la masa y la densidad de Kleopatra. Recientemente, la IAU ha aprobado los nombres de las dos lunas: Cleoselene y Alexhelios. Estos nombres fueron elegidos por los hijos gemelos de Cleopatra:  Cleopatra Selene II y Alejandro Helios. La luna más externa se denomina Alexhelios y la luna más interna es Cleoselene. En la mitología griega, Helios y Selene representaban al Sol y a la Luna, respectivamente. 


He aquí un resumen de lo que sabemos de Kleopatra: 

     
* Se descubrió el 10 de abril 1880 por Johann Palisa. 

    
* A finales de 1970, los estudios de la curva de luz realizados desde la Tierra mostraron una dependencia de la posición relativa de Cleopatra y de la Tierra, lo que sugiere una forma alargada o de dos lóbulos. 

    
* A finales de 1990, gracias a la óptica adaptativa y a las imágenes de radar, se sugiere una forma de hueso de perro para el asteroide, con unas dimensiones de 217 x 94 x 81 Km.
    * Hubo una oposición particularmente buena a finales de 2008,  situándose Kleopatra a tan sólo 1,23 UA de la Tierra, y es entonces cuando las dos lunas fueron descubiertas y sus movimientos observados mediante el telescopio Keck II.

Aquí está una de las imágenes del Keck II que muestra a las lunas recientemente descubiertas, y que también  resuelve la forma del asteroide.

Kleopatra, Alexhelios (1) y Cleoselene (2).

Con los datos actuales, se ha calculado que Kleopatra posee unos 271 kilómetros de largo, con dos lóbulos de unos 80 kilómetros unidos por un cuello de unos 50 a 65 kilómetros. Las dos lunas tienen entre 5 y 10 kilómetros de diámetro y orbitan a 454  (Cleosene) y 678 (
Alexhelios) kilómetros de Kleopatra. 
 
El descubrimiento de (216) Kleopatra eleva a cuarto el número de asteroides triples descubiertos en el cinturón principal, después de (87) Sylvia, (45) Eugenia, y Balam (3749). Con tres noches de observaciones - el 19 de septiembre, y, 5 y 9 de octubre  de 2008 - los astrónomos fueron capaces de determinar el tamaño, forma, masa y densidad del cuerpo principal, y el tamaño y los parámetros orbitales de las lunas. 
 
A partir del tamaño y de la masa determinadas de las órbitas de Alexhelios y Cleoselene, utilizando la segunda ley de Kepler, los astrónomos fueron capaces de determinar la densidad aparente de Kleopatra : 3,6 ± 4 gramos por centímetro cúbico. Kleopatra es más denso que el más denso de los minerales comunes formados de roca. Sin embargo, es mucho menos denso que  los asteroides, que son meteoritos de hierro y sílice. El espectro de tipo M, su alto albedo, y su inercia térmica muy alta, sugieren que es metálico. Si lo es, debe tener al menos un 50% de su espacio vacío a fin de tener una densidad aparente de sólo 3,6. Es decir, sería como un montón de escombros aglomerados sin apretar. Esto sugiere que el origen de Kleopatra es un proceso de reacumulación de materiales con una aceleración lo suficientemente grande como para deformar el cuerpo. Luego sus asteroides podrían tener su origen en los cuerpos que crearon a Kleopatra que finalmente adquirieron un equilibrio orbital sin adherirse al asteroide.

          Weaponization of NASA   
Pestular Croaker: The executive branch ordered today to make NASA a military agency instead of a civilian one. Astronauts will now be part of a sixth branch of the military called the US Space Corps. VP Pence is to be the Commander in Chief of the new military branch.

In the speech, attended by Buzz Aldrin today the President spoke the following words:

"The human soul yearns for discovery. Our journey into space will not only make us stronger and more prosperous, but will unite us behind grand ambitions and bring us all closer together. Wouldn’t that be nice? Can you believe that space is going to do that?"

We can see now how this fits into the other plans announced recently (and documented here with factual articles from reputable sources) to send nukes to Mars and to attack Mars with a giant asteroid that will be redirected to Mars using a deep space mission involving a space ship called a "Shepherd".

          Comment on Forget Mars. Here’s Where We Should Build Our First Off-World Colonies by Archie Meijer   
An asteroid with enough of a shockwave would cause immediate global extinction, even if Earth would still be more inhabitable after evacuated people are returned. As for a plague, even if it didn't wipe everyone out having another planet could be a useful way of enabling a quarantine, even evacuating people tested at some way-station in space before moving them to a plague-free planet, moon, asteroid, or space station. However, more compelling reasons for space colonization are the research benefits from doing so, as well as some long-term economic benefits. There are resources in space and long-term economic benefits to developing them, even if the start-up costs are high.

          NASA unveils its asteroid defense plans   
Humanity could face one less doomsday scenario if NASA has its way. On Friday, the space agency announced plans to redirect the course of a small asteroid approaching Earth, as part of the Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART), according to a NASA press release. The release notes that asteroids hit Earth nearly every day, but most are small enough to burn up in the atmosphere. But the DART project -- a joint effort between NASA and the John Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory in Maryland -- is for the asteroids that are too big to break up -- those that could have severe consequences for the Earth if they hit. "DART would be NASA's first mission to demonstrate what's known as the kinetic impactor technique -- striking the asteroid to shift its orbit -- to defend against a potential future asteroid impact," said Lindley Johnson, NASA's planetary defense officer in Washington, in the press release.

          EL ASTEROIDE QUE PROVOCÓ LA EXTINCIÓN DE LOS DINOSAURIOS    
El impacto alcanzó la energía equivalente a 10 mil millones de bombas de Hiroshima

No podría haber golpeado en un lugar peor de la Tierra.

Esa es la conclusión fundamental a la que llegaron los científicos que perforaron el cráter del impacto del asteroide asociado con la desaparición de los dinosaurios.

Los investigadores recuperaron rocas en el cráter Chicxulub, en el Golfo de México, que fueron golpeadas por el asteroide de 15 km de ancho que impactó en nuestro planeta hace 66 millones de años.

¿De dónde vienen realmente los dinosaurios? El inesperado origen de las criaturas que dominaron la Tierra hace millones de años

Llegaron a la conclusión que el mar poco profundo que cubría el sitio donde el asteroide golpeó provocó que volúmenes colosales de azufre (proveniente del mineral yeso) fueran inyectados en la atmósfera, extendiendo el período de "invierno global" que siguió al impacto.

El equipo de perforación estuvo en la estación en el Golfo en abril y mayo del año pasado.

Ni cómo, ni cuánto, sino dónde
Si el asteroide hubiera caído en un lugar diferente, el resultado podría haber sido muy distinto.

"Aquí es donde llegamos a la gran ironía de la historia: porque al final no fue el tamaño del asteroide, la escala de la explosión, ni su alcance global. Lo que hizo que los dinosaurios se extinguieran fue el lugar donde ocurrió el impacto", dijo el biólogo evolutivo Ben Garrod, quien presentó el documental "El día que los dinosaurios murieron" junto a la paleontóloga Alice Roberts.

"Si el asteroide hubiese caído unos momentos antes o después, podría haber golpeado el océano, en lugar de haberlo hecho en aguas costeras poco profundas.

"Un impacto en los océanos Atlántico o Pacífico cercanos habría significado una cantidad inferior de roca vaporizada en la atmósfera, incluyendo el mortal yeso.

Las rocas fracturadas fueron sometidas a inmensas presiones
"La nube habría sido menos densa y la luz solar podría haber alcanzado la superficie del planeta, evitando lo que sucedió después".

"En este frío y oscuro mundo, la comida del océano se acabó en una semana y poco después en la tierra no había qué comer".

"Sin alimento, los poderosos dinosaurios tenían pocas posibilidades de sobrevivir".

Descubrimientos
Ben Garrod pasó un tiempo en abril y mayo del año pasado con el equipo de perforación a 30 kilómetros de la península de Yucatán, para entender mejor los objetivos del proyecto.

Alice Roberts visitó depósitos fosilizados en Estados Unidos para tener una idea de cómo la vida fue alterada por el impacto.

Se recuperaron núcleos de roca de hasta 1.300 metros bajo el Golfo.

Las secciones más profundas de este material provienen de una característica dentro del cráter llamada "anillo pico".

Qué busca la expedición al cráter de Chicxulub, el sitio de México donde cayó el meteorito que se cree extinguió a los dinosaurios

Esto está hecho de roca que fue bruscamente fracturada y alterada por inmensas presiones.
Al analizar sus propiedades, el equipo del proyecto de perforación -dirigido por los científicos Jo Morgan y Sean Gulick- esperan reconstruir la forma en que se produjo el impacto y los cambios ambientales que causó.

Los famosos sumideros (cenotes) de México se formaron sobre la piedra caliza debilitada que cubre el cráter.

Ellos descubrieron que la energía que se produjo con el impacto del asteroide de 15 kilómetros es equivalente a 10.000 millones de bombas atómicas de Hiroshima.

Y también analizaron cómo se formó la depresión que observamos en la actualidad.

Además, el equipo obtuvo detalles sobre el retorno de la vida en los años posteriores al impacto.

"Todos estos fósiles se encuentran en una capa de no más de 10 cm de espesor", dice el paleontólogo Ken Lacovara a Alice Roberts.


"Ellos murieron repentinamente y quedaron enterrados muy rápido. Esto nos dice que fue solo un momento en el tiempo geológico. Pueden haber sido días, semanas, quizás meses. Pero no miles de años o cientos de miles de años. Esto fue esencialmente un evento instantáneo".

          Why our obsession with disaster films reveals something positive about humanity   

twister oklahoma"Twister"/Warner Bros.

Every blockbuster wants to destroy the world. We explore where that impulse comes from.

Human beings are funny creatures. Summer after summer, year after year, we fork over countless dollars to catch the latest iteration of an ancient story: the sky is falling; the Earth is dying; bring on the end of the world. It’s the season of the disaster film.

Of course, all fiction thrives on conflict and calamity, in part because storytelling allows us to live out our nightmares without cost or consequence. But there’s something undeniably odd about the impulse toward apocalypse that characterizes so much of our popular cinema. We should expect alien visitors, were they not so frequently featured in such films, to be deeply puzzled at this peculiar human ritual.

The oddity is compounded by the fact that, in recent years, the trappings of the disaster film have overtaken other genres as well. None of this summer’s major blockbusters is a disaster film in the classical sense, but The Mummy, Wonder Woman, War for the Planet of the Apes, and Transformers: The Last Knight all feature collapsing buildings and existential stakes.

Wonder WomanWarner Bros. PicturesIt often seems that, against the backdrop of the 24-hour news cycle, only extinction events feel consequential enough to propel blockbuster drama. Exceptions exist, of course, including James Mangold’s admirably humble Logan and Christopher Nolan’s Gotham-centric Dark Knight trilogy. But for the most part, a blockbuster that doesn’t put the world on the line is no blockbuster at all.

Certain obvious explanations for this trend present themselves. The imperatives of the international box office drive all big-budget films toward bigger, clearer narratives, and it’s easy to see why a global threat might have broader appeal than a provincial one. The subtleties of language and gesture that make up a small-scale drama are far harder to translate than a meteor demolishing a skyscraper.

Plus there’s the fact that disaster spectacles remain, for the time being, unique to the big screen. Promise to level an entire city and fewer viewers will want to wait for the streaming release.

But in our rush to turn every conceivable conflict into a colossal one, we’ve forgotten what disaster films, at their best, can offer. The purpose of the disaster film is not to make small conflicts bigger but to make big ones smaller – to reduce unthinkable catastrophes to a human scale.

Our indifference to genocides and natural disasters the world over suggests that we are poorly equipped to care about massive tragedies. It is only when these tragedies are expressed through individuals that we are able to empathize. We don’t care about the people because of the disaster; we care about the disaster because of the people.

Andrei Tarkovsky once wrote that the meaning of cinema was “relating a person to the whole world.” And though it’s difficult to imagine Tarkovsky lining up for a Roland Emmerich film, his aphorism describes the potential toward which great disaster films can aspire.

For all the ethical abandon with which some disaster films kill off their characters, the perspective they can afford is accurate. Most of the dramas we tend to care about are, in the scheme of things, insignificant – and so they would seem, were we faced with impending doom. We are apes on a rock tearing through a void. It’s about time we stuck together.

Twister

twister oklahoma"Twister"/Warner Bros.

Widely maligned by critics upon its release, Twister holds a special place in the heart of many a millennial, thanks in part to the popular ride at Universal Studios. The film’s plot is laughable on its face: a retired storm-chaser returns home to get his divorce papers signed, only to be wrapped up in a quest to study an F5 tornado.

Silly though it may sound, the film is executed with such flare and infectious enthusiasm that it’s difficult not to get swept up (pun intended). Led by the charming Bill Paxton and the always-stellar Helen Hunt, with supporting performances by Philip Seymour Hoffman and Cary Elwes, the film transcends its hokey storyline to become a first-rate entertainment.

The Core

There’s a profound satisfaction to be found in loving a film that others find ridiculous. I have loved many such films — The Village, Across the Universe, Airheads – but none of my favorites is so broadly hated as The Core. The film, which concerns a ragtag team’s attempt to restore the spinning of the earth’s core, could easily be relabeled “generic disaster movie.” Its trailer is full of lines like “everybody’s dead in a year” and “we killed the planet.”

Aaron Eckhart stars in a role that failed to establish him as a leading man, but he admirably holds together a cast that includes Hilary Swank and Stanley Tucci. At the very least, The Core is instructive for laying the conventions of its genre so blatantly bare. 

The Day After Tomorrow

the day after tomorrow 20th Century Fox20th Century Fox

Disaster films nearly always contain some not-so-subtle commentary on our mistreatment of the environment, but this one was so topical upon its release that it could have been shown as a double-feature with An Inconvenient Truth. Directed by disaster filmmaker extraordinaire Roland Emmerich, The Day After Tomorrow tells the story of a paleoclimatologist played by Jake Gyllenhaal who’s forced to lead a group of survivors when a superstorm floods, then freezes, New York City.

It is a hamfisted cautionary tale about global warming (which, via the film’s scientific hand-waving, produces an ice age), but it also functions as a powerful 9/11 allegory, celebrating the ability of New Yorkers to unify in the face of tragedy.

Independence Day

Independence Day set the stage for the modern disaster film, lending new levels of visual spectacle (the film picked up an Oscar for visual effects) and global appeal to the genre. There is something refreshing about the film’s eschewal of any subtlety in its treatment of alien invasion: they’re here to kill us, we’re told, so we have to kill them first.

It is in reaction to a film like Independence Day, which features a mad-dog Randy Quaid blowing up an alien ship kamikaze-style, that a film like Arrival gets made, which features a somber Amy Adams writing messages on a whiteboard. I, for one, am glad that the cinematic ecosystem can bear both.

Armageddon

ArmageddonWalt Disney Studios

No list of disaster films would be complete without some Bayhem. Armageddon, like The Core, is positively ludicrous from a narrative perspective: a group of oil-drillers are sent to space to stop an asteroid from destroying the planet.

But as an exercise in style and genre, the film stands up – if only because Michael Bay’s shameless, sweeping, dynamic style has been so influential in Hollywood since. Even the Criterion Collection, those great arbiters of cinematic taste and distinction, saw fit to recognize the film with a laserdisc. Perhaps in fifty years time, we’ll be reevaluating Bay’s work the way French critics reevaluated Hitchcock. That is, if an asteroid doesn’t wipe us out first.

Инсонни вайронкорлиги бўйича метеоритга қиёслаш мумкинми? Биз келишимиз билан Ернинг геологик тизими қандай ўзгарди? Энг муҳими, цивилизациямиз қолдиқларини қазиб ўгранадиган узоқ авлодларимиз биз ҳақимизда қандай хулосага келади? Америкалик социобиолог Эдвард Уилсон «Ернинг келажаги. Ҳаёт учун курашаётган сайёрамиз» номли асарида юқоридаги каби саволларга жавоб беришга уринади, деб ёзади «Дарё» нашри.
Инсон экотизимни қандай ўзгартирмоқда?
65 миллион йил аввал Юкатан ярим ороли соҳилига ҳозирги Чиксулуб шаҳарчаси ҳудудидаги 20 километр кенгликка соатига 20 километр тезлик билан ҳаракатланаётган астероид қулади. Сайёра улкан қўнғироқ каби мазкур зарба оқибатида тебраниб кетди. Портлаш оқибатида диаметри 180 километр, чуқурлиги ўн километр бўлган кратер вужудга келди. Унинг кетидан вулқонлар, зилзила, кислотали ёмғирлар ва океаннинг улкан тўлқини вужудга келди. Осмонга кўтарилган кул булутлари фотосинтез жараёнини секинлаштириб юборди ва қуёш ёруғлиги йўлини тўсиб қўйди. Тун узайган даврда катаклизмни бошдан кечирган ўсимлик дунёсининг катта қисми ҳалок бўлди. Ҳалокатли тун қатлами остида ҳаво ҳарорати кескин тушиб кетди ва сайёрани қиш қамраб олди. Тирик организмларнинг 70 фоизи, жумладан, динозаврларнинг охирги турлари ҳам қирилиб кетди.

Шундай қилиб судралиб юрувчилар даври — мезозой эраси тугаб, сутемизувчилар даври — кайнозой эраси бошланди. Биз кайнозой эрасининг энг олий, эҳтимол охирги асаримиз. Геологлар кайнозой эрасини еттита геологик даврга бўлади. Улардан ҳар бири ўзига хос яшаш муҳити ва уларда тарқалган ўсинлик ва ҳайвонот олами турлари билан характерланади. Янги эра бошланиши палеоцен, ундан кейин эоцен, олигоцен, миоцен ва плиоцен даврлари бир-бирнинг ўрнини эгаллади. Биз яшаётган давр геологлар томонидан голоцен деб номланган. У 11700 йил аввал охирги қитъа музликлари чекина бошлагандан сўнг бошланиб, анча юмшоқ иқлим шароитларини олиб келди. Қисқа давр ичида жуда кўп турлар вужудга келди.

Шунингдек, голоцен даврида Ер юзининг яшаш учун яроқли барча юзаси бўйлаб одамлар жойлаша бошлади. Ҳаётнинг барча уч босқичи вайронкорлик кучи бўйича Чиксулубдаги зарба билан қиёслаш мумкин бўлган янги таҳдидга юзма-юз бўлди. Ўшанда ҳам, ҳозир ҳам биринчи босқични экотизимлар (масалан, маржон қоялар, ўрмон ва дарёлар), иккинчи босқич — экотизимлар тирик қисмини ташкил этувчи турлар (маржон қоялар, эман, балиқлар турлари), учинчиси эса — ҳар бир тирик организмнинг ўзига хос жиҳатларини белгилаб берувчи генлар ташкил қилган.

Геологик вақт нуқтаи назаридан оммавий қирилиб кетиш ўзига хос ҳодиса эмас. Улар бир-биридан кўлами ва суръати билан фарқланиб, ҳаётга унинг бутун тарихи давомида ҳамроҳлик қилади. Умуман олганда, ҳақиқий ҳалокатли ҳодисалар тахминан 100 миллион йилда бир марта юз беради. Биз ана шундай вайронкор жараённинг максимал фаоллиги кузатилган бешта давр ҳақидаги маълумотларга эгамиз. Уларнинг ҳар биридан сўнг Ер ўзини ўнглаб олиши учун тахминан ўн миллион йил керак бўлган.

Кўпчилик муаллифларнинг фикрича, голоцен тугаганлигини қайд этиш ва янги геологик давр бошланганлиги ҳақида эълон қилиш учун Ер етарлича ўзгаришларни бошдан кечирган. Янги давр номланишлари орасида «антропоцен» — инсон даври термини кўпроқ учрайди. Бу номланишнинг ишонарли мантиқий асоси мавжуд.

Буни яққол тасаввур қилиш учун қуйидаги хаёлий тажрибани ўтказиб кўрамиз.

          Weaponization of NASA   
Pestular Croaker: The executive branch ordered today to make NASA a military agency instead of a civilian one. Astronauts will now be part of a sixth branch of the military called the US Space Corps. VP Pence is to be the Commander in Chief of the new military branch.

In the speech, attended by Buzz Aldrin today the President spoke the following words:

"The human soul yearns for discovery. Our journey into space will not only make us stronger and more prosperous, but will unite us behind grand ambitions and bring us all closer together. Wouldn’t that be nice? Can you believe that space is going to do that?"

We can see now how this fits into the other plans announced recently (and documented here with factual articles from reputable sources) to send nukes to Mars and to attack Mars with a giant asteroid that will be redirected to Mars using a deep space mission involving a space ship called a "Shepherd".

This maybe the craziest idea: What if we turn Earth to a mobile planet and also bombard Mars with asteroids and comets and get it closer to Earth and also make Mars have similar amounts of water and oxygen atmosphere, and later also turn Mars to a mobile planet? Then we would have two mobile planets to live and move anywhere, maybe even to nearby stars. Then maybe we could keep creating more mobile planets everywhere we go in the universe. :-)

I think it is not necessarily a lost battle in the end. That is why I had asked what would be the size of orbit of Earth/Mars when we run out of asteroids and comets. Because I think if the size of the orbit is big enough, it could make it possible to come close to a suitable planet in a nearby star. Keep in mind we would prefer to save all humanity if possible.

These all sound like futile attempts in the long run. I mean, sure.. it will buy another billion years or so.. But if we are pondering those timescales... then it's futile in the end. I mean, the sun won't stop expanding. In the red giant stage it will encompass both earth and mars orbits. The "safe" areas will be Neptun and beyond. If we have the technology to move comets, asteroids and such and have the ability to move whole planets, then we'll probably have the tech to build enormous space stations and habitats. We might not be able to settle other worlds beyond our solar system, but by that time it might be more efficient to focus the resources in building new habitats, then moving planets more and more away from the ever growing sun, which is in the end a lost battle.

          Why our obsession with disaster films reveals something positive about humanity   

twister oklahoma"Twister"/Warner Bros.

Every blockbuster wants to destroy the world. We explore where that impulse comes from.

Human beings are funny creatures. Summer after summer, year after year, we fork over countless dollars to catch the latest iteration of an ancient story: the sky is falling; the Earth is dying; bring on the end of the world. It’s the season of the disaster film.

Of course, all fiction thrives on conflict and calamity, in part because storytelling allows us to live out our nightmares without cost or consequence. But there’s something undeniably odd about the impulse toward apocalypse that characterizes so much of our popular cinema. We should expect alien visitors, were they not so frequently featured in such films, to be deeply puzzled at this peculiar human ritual.

The oddity is compounded by the fact that, in recent years, the trappings of the disaster film have overtaken other genres as well. None of this summer’s major blockbusters is a disaster film in the classical sense, but The Mummy, Wonder Woman, War for the Planet of the Apes, and Transformers: The Last Knight all feature collapsing buildings and existential stakes.

Wonder WomanWarner Bros. PicturesIt often seems that, against the backdrop of the 24-hour news cycle, only extinction events feel consequential enough to propel blockbuster drama. Exceptions exist, of course, including James Mangold’s admirably humble Logan and Christopher Nolan’s Gotham-centric Dark Knight trilogy. But for the most part, a blockbuster that doesn’t put the world on the line is no blockbuster at all.

Certain obvious explanations for this trend present themselves. The imperatives of the international box office drive all big-budget films toward bigger, clearer narratives, and it’s easy to see why a global threat might have broader appeal than a provincial one. The subtleties of language and gesture that make up a small-scale drama are far harder to translate than a meteor demolishing a skyscraper.

Plus there’s the fact that disaster spectacles remain, for the time being, unique to the big screen. Promise to level an entire city and fewer viewers will want to wait for the streaming release.

But in our rush to turn every conceivable conflict into a colossal one, we’ve forgotten what disaster films, at their best, can offer. The purpose of the disaster film is not to make small conflicts bigger but to make big ones smaller – to reduce unthinkable catastrophes to a human scale.

Our indifference to genocides and natural disasters the world over suggests that we are poorly equipped to care about massive tragedies. It is only when these tragedies are expressed through individuals that we are able to empathize. We don’t care about the people because of the disaster; we care about the disaster because of the people.

Andrei Tarkovsky once wrote that the meaning of cinema was “relating a person to the whole world.” And though it’s difficult to imagine Tarkovsky lining up for a Roland Emmerich film, his aphorism describes the potential toward which great disaster films can aspire.

For all the ethical abandon with which some disaster films kill off their characters, the perspective they can afford is accurate. Most of the dramas we tend to care about are, in the scheme of things, insignificant – and so they would seem, were we faced with impending doom. We are apes on a rock tearing through a void. It’s about time we stuck together.

Twister

twister oklahoma"Twister"/Warner Bros.

Widely maligned by critics upon its release, Twister holds a special place in the heart of many a millennial, thanks in part to the popular ride at Universal Studios. The film’s plot is laughable on its face: a retired storm-chaser returns home to get his divorce papers signed, only to be wrapped up in a quest to study an F5 tornado.

Silly though it may sound, the film is executed with such flare and infectious enthusiasm that it’s difficult not to get swept up (pun intended). Led by the charming Bill Paxton and the always-stellar Helen Hunt, with supporting performances by Philip Seymour Hoffman and Cary Elwes, the film transcends its hokey storyline to become a first-rate entertainment.

The Core

There’s a profound satisfaction to be found in loving a film that others find ridiculous. I have loved many such films — The Village, Across the Universe, Airheads – but none of my favorites is so broadly hated as The Core. The film, which concerns a ragtag team’s attempt to restore the spinning of the earth’s core, could easily be relabeled “generic disaster movie.” Its trailer is full of lines like “everybody’s dead in a year” and “we killed the planet.”

Aaron Eckhart stars in a role that failed to establish him as a leading man, but he admirably holds together a cast that includes Hilary Swank and Stanley Tucci. At the very least, The Core is instructive for laying the conventions of its genre so blatantly bare. 

The Day After Tomorrow

the day after tomorrow 20th Century Fox20th Century Fox

Disaster films nearly always contain some not-so-subtle commentary on our mistreatment of the environment, but this one was so topical upon its release that it could have been shown as a double-feature with An Inconvenient Truth. Directed by disaster filmmaker extraordinaire Roland Emmerich, The Day After Tomorrow tells the story of a paleoclimatologist played by Jake Gyllenhaal who’s forced to lead a group of survivors when a superstorm floods, then freezes, New York City.

It is a hamfisted cautionary tale about global warming (which, via the film’s scientific hand-waving, produces an ice age), but it also functions as a powerful 9/11 allegory, celebrating the ability of New Yorkers to unify in the face of tragedy.

Independence Day

Independence Day set the stage for the modern disaster film, lending new levels of visual spectacle (the film picked up an Oscar for visual effects) and global appeal to the genre. There is something refreshing about the film’s eschewal of any subtlety in its treatment of alien invasion: they’re here to kill us, we’re told, so we have to kill them first.

It is in reaction to a film like Independence Day, which features a mad-dog Randy Quaid blowing up an alien ship kamikaze-style, that a film like Arrival gets made, which features a somber Amy Adams writing messages on a whiteboard. I, for one, am glad that the cinematic ecosystem can bear both.

Armageddon

ArmageddonWalt Disney Studios

No list of disaster films would be complete without some Bayhem. Armageddon, like The Core, is positively ludicrous from a narrative perspective: a group of oil-drillers are sent to space to stop an asteroid from destroying the planet.

But as an exercise in style and genre, the film stands up – if only because Michael Bay’s shameless, sweeping, dynamic style has been so influential in Hollywood since. Even the Criterion Collection, those great arbiters of cinematic taste and distinction, saw fit to recognize the film with a laserdisc. Perhaps in fifty years time, we’ll be reevaluating Bay’s work the way French critics reevaluated Hitchcock. That is, if an asteroid doesn’t wipe us out first.

Tiny Epic Galaxies: Beyond the Black

Designed by: Scott Almes

1 - 5 Players

Playtime: 1/2 Hour - 1 Hour

While this might be content I’d normally tackle in a Budget Board Gamer episode, I felt it more prudent to discuss it now, as my backlog is a bit extensive and I felt the need to voice my opinions on this one.

Tiny Epic Galaxies is a game I have yet to discuss, but I must say that I do find it quite enjoyable and engaging both from multiplayer and solo perspectives. The follow mechanic is a stand-out idea that encourages more thought-provoking strategies. Every game feels tight, with players within a couple of points of one another by the end. And while not “tiny”, a rather big game comes in an impressively compact package.

Enter Beyond the Black, a Kickstarter campaign that passed me by before I realized it was there. Luckily, here at Games on Tape we can rely on most games eventually finding its way to our doorstep, with Tim having backed the game a while ago and me borrowing a copy from someone I game with often. Needless to say, it isn’t too hard to find these days on store shelves, in a box basically identical to the original.

Within, players will find four Star Trek-ish ships and a points tracker in each color, a score track board, an unexplored space board, five spaceport boards, 30 pilot cards, 12 planet cards, eight secret goal cards, and a rulebook.

While the new components were the first things to catch my eye, it didn’t take me long to notice the thin nature of the rulebook, composed of barely seven pages. The explanation is easily grasped and succinct, clearly striving to add a handful of new options without derailing the original game, one of the best things an expansion can aim to do.

Once I reached the bottom of the box, I noticed, coincidentally, that the modified rules for solo mode could be found in the bottom well. In fact, this is the only place you can find it, an oversight in my opinion, especially for someone who likes to keep all his rulebooks as PDF’s generally. A small nitpick, yes, but I’d rather have had this as a part of the rules, especially considering how short it is already.

The new player components are the same nice, wooden pieces that you’ve already been playing with for some time now. If you enjoy how those feel, you’ll have no issue with these. Similarly, the card quality and art is just as good, if not better.

I find myself being drawn to having roles to play off of when experiencing a board game, so I was immediately excited by the wide selection of pilots this game presents, from the four-armed alien Bookworm to the serious and confident Monk to… Tim Shaffer? Yes, if you got your copy via the Kickstarter, there will be a handful of familiar faces, including the titular Gamelyn Games mascot, appearing as promos. I’ve never been a fan of celebrities invading the games I play (I’m having flashbacks to the countless Wil Wheaton and Felicia Day promos that were all the craze at the start of the decade), and these feel particularly out of place, but to each their own.

Perhaps the most surprising and perplexing for me was the sealed stack of circular cards, labeled simply as unexplored space. While a neat idea to help distinguish them and allow them to fit on the appropriate mat, the shape and slickness make these a slight pain to shuffle, and are the least interesting to look at, with many of the images feeling mundane and typical when standing next to the portraits of planets and the grimaces and grins of the crew members you’ve recruited.

So, what does all this amount to? What does Beyond the Black truly add to the Tiny Epic Galaxy experience?

… A whole lot of nothing.

I hate that I have to say that, but it’s true. This expansion, for all its polish and style, acts as nothing more but a brief distraction until you return to playing the game the way it was originally meant to be played.



Beyond the Black looks to add two new actions that players can take on their turn; hire a pilot and fly to unexplored space, but before I get into those, I need to explain how exploration badges work for the sake of explaining balancing.

Exploration badges appear at the bottom of every pilot and exploration card. At the end of the game, on top of all normal, points, players can get points for having the most of each of the four symbols, two points if they have the most and one if they have the second most. A nice idea, certainly, but something that’s incredibly hard to tell, from a competitive perspective, how you are faring as opposed to everyone else. In the base game, you have x number of points, they have y number of points. It’s easy to recognize and calculate, thus allowing the games to be closer and more competitive. Here, half the exploration cards will remain unrevealed until the end of the game, and it simply doesn’t feel interesting or witty; it feels like someone collected the most triangles by random happenstance, so they get two points. … Hooray?

Hiring a pilot from a selection equal to the number of planets present is as simple as getting two dice of the same face and, instead of using them for their regular abilities, spending both to recruit a pilot that can fly the ship associated with those symbols. Some pilots can only pilot certain ships, but each give their own special abilities that only affect the ship they control, allowing you to collect extra resources, steal from others, colonize more efficiently, and more. Additionally, you can spend three of the same face to recruit any pilot for any ship type. Each pilot you obtain is worth a victory point, regardless if you replace them later in the game.

While these abilities can be fun and useful to have, a number of issues quickly surface, turning this seemingly useful option into more of a distraction. Firstly, players are required to spend two actions worth of dice to obtain a point and a passive buff when often you could better use those symbols to colonize or prepare your galaxy for the rounds to come. Yes, the pilots can be useful, but seeing as they only affect the one ship, their use is very limited. You’ll find yourself using a ship’s ability once only to leave it there because you have better actions available that actually move you towards victory. Because at the end of the day, pilots get you one point a pop for two actions. From a game-end perspective, you sacrifice a lot to get them with very little pay-off.



It’s not even like these pilots are all that balanced either; looking over the 30 cards, there are some pilots that provide better versions of abilities for the same cost, and sometimes with more flexibility.

Take the Kingpin vs the Agent; while the Kingpin lets a player take a free planet action when its ship successfully colonizes a planet, the Agent simply needs to enter a planet’s colony track to get the same effect, allowing for you to get the effect more immediately and plan around it as opposed to hoping you don’t get beat to the end of a colony track. On top of this, while the Kingpin can pilot two different types of ships, the Agent can commandeer any of the four, making it an easy card to scoop up. Oh, and the Kingpin only has one exploration badge while the Agent has three, making the Agent the most competitive not just in terms of abilities, but end-game points too.

Not convinced? Well, let’s look at the Marshall vs the Duchess. The Marshall, when colonizing a plent, gets 1 free resource of that planet type, whereas the Duchess gets 2 for doing the same thing. Also, the Marshall is limited to manning only one type of ship, whereas the Duchess can pilot two types, and each come with only one exploration badge. One card is LITERALLY better than the other in every given way.

On top of this, there are some cards that have crazy abilities. The Overseer can colonize with either economy or politics regardless of the planet, the Lightspeeder can launch with any die face, and the Peace Keeper prevents anyone else from moving their ship on the colony track past it. These can be pretty insane abilities, so much so that they feel unfair next to others. I mean, get the Peace Keeper out early enough on a colony track, and no one else can take it from you. That’s ridiculous, but most of these cards are not that powerful, not by a longshot.

All of this is indicated on a player’s spaceport board, which means the expansion is already doubling the amount of tablespace you need to play. And when you do get a pilot, you need to choose one of your current ships, replace it with the appropriate ship, and then use the old ship to indicate on the pilot card which ship the pilot is using by covering that symbol. But once you have three or four, you start to forget which ship goes to which pilot, meaning you’re constantly checking over your cards and where your ships are positioned, making each turn drag.

That’s not even to speak to how much text is on every pilot card. Most have three or four lines of text in small print, meaning players will spend an extensive amount of their turn reading over the descriptions of not just every planet action, but every pilot ability as well.

When we first pulled this out, one of the players had never played Tiny Epic Galaxies before, so we started with a game only using the base components, a close match that lasted about 35 minutes. After introducing the expansion, however, the game dragged to a dreadful two hours. TWO HOURS. Now, this likely isn't the most fair example, as everyone was new to the game, and thus had to both understand the game and constantly remind ourselves of the pilots and what they did, but regardless of that I think it's fair to say that this expansion certainly extends the playtime of the game by a bit due to doubling the amount of information on the table.

So we have a ton of pilots that cost two actions, provide one point, and have effects that affect that ship in question, and while some are powerful, they are few and far between and cost the same as just about any other ship, meaning you either get lucky with the selection provided or you never take pilots, simple as that. I wanted to like this idea so much, but it just doesn’t gel well with the game format, not to mention it becomes a chore to use. Off to a less-than-great start.

The unexplored space though… in my opinion, it’s infinitely worse. How this works is that rather than flying a ship to a planet in some way with a launch, players can send their ship to unexplored space.

What I can briefly note as a positive is that this space provides culture, allowing for a permanent location that consistently provides a much-needed resource, something the base game lacks.

That being said, when you land there, you must draw an unexplored space card. When drawing from the top of the deck, if a green card, players may either keep it or place it on the table and draw again. Players can continue to do this until they find a card they like, three cards are already available on the table, or you draw a red card. Alternatively, players can take a face-up card from the table without replacing it rather than trying their luck.

Green cards provide either one or two resources, and will sometimes rarely give one point. Red cards, on the other hand, force players to lose two resources, give two resources to other players, or trap that player’s ships temporarily until they complete a planet track through an asteroid field or black hole.

In other words, the best reward a player can get is two random resources, something that your normal actions can often provide more consistently, and there’s a good chance that you’ll screw yourself and even help your opponents by doing so. After checking, there are 11 red cards out of the 30 unexplored space cards, meaning you have slightly more than a ⅓ chance of screwing yourself in the process. Meanwhile, there are ten cards that provide two resources, six cards that give one resource, and three cards that simply give you a point.

And yes, it can be argued that this is made up for in exploration badges, with the negative effects and lesser positive effects giving you more, but here’s the thing; those aren’t guaranteed points, far from it. You have no idea how many badges of each type players have until the game has finished, meaning there’s no planning involved, no strategy, just dumb luck.

It’s also worth noting that, in the games I have played, players have always taken the top card of the deck rather than fishing for more. And why not? Why would you risk drawing into a bad card if you haven’t already when the odds are against you in most situations?

The unexplored space mechanic adds a press-your-luck element that doesn’t work in such a deductive and strategic game, simply cluttered the tablespace with a ton of extra components.

And when it all comes down to it, players who get hung up on these two new actions will lose. In the first game I played of this, one of the players simply played as he always did, and smoked everyone else by a landslide, even after the badges. While most of us had six or ten points due to our exploration expeditions or recruitment phases, this individual fully upgraded their galaxy and sat on a handful of planets, boosting him to 21 points easily with no competition to fight when colonizing.



A lot of you may be wondering how solo is then, that maybe with less components to manage, less cards cluttering the table, and a more focused game, that all this might come together into a great experience. And while the pilots do get a little more traction, this is only because the AI will likely meander. The expansion comes with five new AI opponents (on the backs of the spaceport boards) which include the new mechanics, and the rules in the bottom of the box briefly explain how they obtain pilots.

What really kills this as an option, though, is how now every time the AI upgrades itself, it gets a random exploration card for itself, basically getting a free action. Through this, the AI can quickly accumulate enough exploration badges to get a free eight points at the end of every game, and while some may find this addition to make the game more challenging, I find it annoying and obnoxious. Not that it gives the AI that much of an advantage; I can still beat Medium without much effort, but many of the opponents have abilities that earn them extra Pilots and Exploration cards for free, quickly stacking points against you in a way that feels, to me at least, less interesting or exciting.

Even the new secret goal cards and planet cards feel tacked on and frustrating to use. Some of the secret goal cards are especially difficult to achieve, such as Invincible, which awards you if you have the most red exploration cards at the end of the game. While possible, you’ll lose so many resources in the process you’ll screw yourself out of the win, while also supplying your opponents with great face-up exploration cards if you choose to sift through your options. Meanwhile, the Dwarf and Giant goals requires a player to have no or all of their planets, respectively, to be worth 5 points, by and large limiting what you can and can’t do, especially when the luck of the draw can make these options not terribly viable.

And the new planets are here to add the new mechanics into planetary effects, but half of them provide either resource, depending on what you’re collecting, making them feel a little too generous, regardless of their planetary abilities. Additionally, you’ll be hard-pressed to have more than one or two of them show up in your game, with there being so many planets in the base game already.

Lastly, the score track, while a nice thought, becomes a hassle quickly. Yes, you can track every single point a player gets in real time, but generally you can determine how many points a player has just by looking for their cards, meaning it becomes more obnoxious than helpful.

Simply put, Beyond the Black adds nothing of value to the Tiny Epic Galaxies experience. The ideas are mostly sound and interesting, but it all comes down to the new mechanics not being competitive enough. It’s a shame, really, as I had some incredibly high hopes for this game, even going so far as trying to play with just the pilots, removing the unexplored space and badges. But even if that was a viable way to play, it wouldn’t be worth the $25 price tag.

          Vida Alienígena - Será que em outros mundos nossa existência também é questionada?   
Crédito: Gério Ganimedes

Por Gério Ganimedes

"Num mundo distante, nossa existência também questionada está inevitavelmente refletida nos olhos dos alienígenas que observam o firmamento noturno”.

Vida infinita que foi semeada nas estrelas, planetas, luas, asteroides e outros corpos celestes, numa grande diversidade de formas, cores, dimensões e composições orgânicas, mais parecendo uma poesia cósmica. De onde surgimos, para onde vamos, o que acontecerá com nossa civilização, aprendizado e conhecimento? Estamos diante de um salto importante da consciência humana, tanto a nível espiritual como mental muitos de nós estão abrindo a mente para uma hipótese que já se transformou em fato. A existência de vida extraterrestre comunicável. Sente-se numa cadeira a céu aberto, numa noite de céu límpido. Veja quanta luz, quantas são as possibilidades de estar observando um mundo como o nosso. Já pensou que é um grande desperdício de espaço? Na minha posição de astrônomo e ufólogo vejo, em cada fonte de energia e luz, uma nova probabilidade de existência de vida inteligente, e com toda certeza, muito mais inteligente que a nossa. As estrelas são pontos referenciais da Gênesis. Planetas considerados mortais, por sua atmosfera inóspita pode ser uma cepa valiosa e promissora de desenvolvimento de espécies adaptadas a estas condições agressivas, contudo, mortais apenas para nós humanos. Paralelas, em nosso próprio mundo existem formas de vida que sobrevive a grandes pressões e altíssimas temperaturas oceânicas (regiões vulcânicas da plataforma abissal oceânica). Então, como podemos duvidar ou questionar a presença de vida extraterrestre, só porque um mundo tem uma composição química improvável para procriação da vida? Já pensou que ao mesmo tempo em que você olha um ponto brilhante no céu, alguém lá também observa você, questionando nossa existência? Quantas serão as raças extraterrestres que observam nosso “Jardim do Éden”?


 Mundo alienígena - por Gério Ganimedes

Nossa percepção conceitual deve ser apurada para evoluirmos como espécie inteligente, senão tudo que aprendemos pesquisas que desenvolvemos eventos que experimentamos e acumulamos ao longo dos anos irão se tornar apenas matéria prima de estudos arqueológicos de futuras espécies. Uma espécie que na grande maioria, se autodestrói, que não respeita barreiras entre a vida terrestre e aquática, caminha para o abismo da extinção. Se a humanidade continuar em sua linha egoísta e egocêntrica, pensando que somos únicos neste incomensurável universo, vamos nos transformar unicamente em poeira cósmica, não deixando nada para semear para futuras gerações cósmicas. Analisando a situação contemporânea da humanidade, por uma óptica mais evoluída, isso pode ser maléfico para a raça humana. Espécies destruidoras têm um histórico quase sempre apocalíptico e acabam por serem sepultadas e apagadas, restando poucos para a geração de novas espécies melhores, mais desenvolvidas e promissoras. A grande tristeza que arrepia a alma, é que os evoluídos deste mundo pagam pelo egoísmo, ceticismo e nenhuma espiritualidade de muitos que preferem destruir a construir. Num plano imaginário extraterrestre, talvez o que mantém o romantismo daqueles que nos observam de outros mundos, graças às grandes distâncias astronômicas, é que eles não podem ver que aqui habitam salvas exceções, uma raça destruidora e implacável.

          A Dança Cósmica das Galáxias - A Poesia do Universo   



Por Gério Ganimedes


Como bailarinas especiais eleitas por Deus, como mães de sistemas do universo as galáxias mais se parecem como fogos de artifício espalhando cores e brilho no firmamento. Quando observadas por potentes conjuntos ópticos de grandes telescópios transformam-se em magníficas espirais cintilantes dotadas de múltiplos pontos de luz e cores. Diante da visão de quem já teve o prazer de observar numa noite límpida sem poluição luminosa, a via Láctea aparece como uma curva francesa expressa em 3D, com profundidade luminância e cores que invejam qualquer arco-íris. Ao centro de cada núcleo de uma galáxia concentra-se um ponto de extremo brilho. Este ponto singular é dotado de uma espécie de "ralo" ou buraco negro. Um lugar onde as estrelas e planetas são espremidos, transformados em energia que se fundem e um âmago de vida e morte.

Neste cenário cósmico de transformação energética, mundos nascem e morrem num piscar de olhos. Cada espiral galáctica é o reino de planetas, estrelas, cometas e asteroides. Um cinturão de astros que viajam em estradas cíclicas interagindo com milhões de elementos celestes criadores e destruidores de vida. Um paradoxo infinito de conexões e rupturas estruturais. Vistas de longe, na ocular de um telescópio, aparecem apenas como asas elípticas de luz e cor, ampulhetas, borboletas, as mais variadas curvas de Bézier, no entanto esconde em seu interior um verdadeiro "Balé Astronômico", que destrói, transforma e cria novos sistemas, novas estrelas e novos mundos com todos agentes coadjuvantes integrantes do universo.


Ao mesmo tempo em que estrelas e mundos velhos vão sendo dragados pela energia destruidora do centro das galáxias, novas energias vão alimentando com força geoespacial incalculável e incomensurável a formação de novos sistemas estelares, novos mundos, que apenas aguardam como um campo de plantação a inseminação extraterrestre, semente de Deuses para um novo mundo repleto de vida.

 Nebulosa Borboleta

"O universo de meu pai têm muitas moradas... Enquanto algumas morrem, outras nascem... E a vida evolui na direção da luz, da inteligência, da sabedoria de Deus ... Nosso mundo viaja nos braços da Via Láctea sempre em direção ao destino de todos os astros... O Centro ou núcleo da galáxia. Início ou Fim?"

          Lua em Rota de Colisão - E se a Lua se Tornar Alvo de um Grande Asteroide?   




Por Gério Ganimedes


Constantemente surgem textos científicos e matérias sensacionalistas, com conteúdo apocalíptico de que a Terra pode, há qualquer momento, ser alvo de uma rocha espacial de grandes dimensões, mas não só nosso planeta pode ser atingido por um grande asteroide. E se nosso satélite natural, a lua for impactada por um corpo espacial de grandes proporções? O que pode acontecer à humanidade como conseqüências deste impacto profundo? Muito pouco se fala desta hipótese, quase sempre se trata deste tipo de catástrofe, com alvo principal, nosso planeta, entretanto se um asteroide, como o que atingiu a Terra e levou a extinção os dinossauros, impactar com nosso satélite natural, podemos sofrer por reflexo, um evento catastrófico global.

Nuvem de Oort - Fonte de Rochas Espaciais
 e Detritos / Restos de Corpos Celestes
que Assombram nosso Sistema Solar

A Lua é um corpo celeste que equilibra as forças que sustentam nosso planeta. Tem influência gravitacional sobre as marés dos oceanos, afeta o crescimento das plantas (crescimento e também reprodução) e até mesmo tem influência direta sobre nossas vidas. Caso aconteça um evento astronômico, como o impacto de um grande asteroide em nosso satélite natural, ele poderá sofrer um colapso estrutural tão grande, que o faria quebrar em pedaços. Estes efeitos colaterais catastróficos seriam sentidos na Terra, quase que imediatamente após o colapso de nossa Lua.


Elevação do nível dos oceanos, inundações, modificações no tempo, alterações climáticas, tempestades elétricas nunca antes registradas, sem falar da queda em nossa atmosfera e impacto na superfície de nosso planeta dos destroços do colapso lunar. Os fragmentos desta destruição seriam imediatamente atraídos pela gravidade da Terra causando uma destruição de níveis inimagináveis. Por isso penso, que um evento astronômico deste tipo, com certeza seria tão perigoso quanto um impacto direto de um asteroide na Terra. Nosso sistema solar é regido basicamente por uma premissa maior chamada de "equilíbrio". Qualquer alteração na "substância fundamental" que forma toda matéria existente universo, a vida entra em colapso e o caos é desencadeado numa reação devastadora.

Importante é, não só se preocupar com as trajetórias e distâncias astronômicas das rochas espaciais que tem risco potencial de nos atingir, mas também as distâncias que estes objetos errantes cruzam, e colocam também em risco de impacto, nosso satélite natural.

"Lembre-se de que às vezes, aquilo que menos nos preocupa, pode se tornar nosso maior problema".

Por Gério Ganimedes


Diante do questionamento de leitores, tomei em mente a decisão de pesquisar e escrever esta postagem.


Afirmações feitas uma pessoa que se diz “cientista”, de que um asteroide ou cometa sem cauda, irá atingir a Terra no décimo sexto dia do mês de fevereiro de 2017 podem se tornar matéria prima de nossos piores pesadelos. No entanto, antes de permitirmos que estas afirmações apocalípticas criem cenários de destruição em nossas mentes, devemos pesquisar e verificar as fontes destas evidências coerentes que confirmem o fato. Em astronomia a proporção numérica tem valores que podem transformar-se em distâncias muito além da nossa capacidade de medir, então antes de temer uma probabilidade e possibilidade de impacto, temos que entender a escala que mensura o corpo celeste que se aproxima.


Numa analogia grosseira, a Terra está para o sistema solar, como a bola azul de uma mesa de Snooker. Tudo tranqüilo e favorável, até a bola branca atingir a hegemonia cósmica e desequilibrar tudo.

 Observação da SOHO em 2015 de uma 
Anômala atividade de corpos celestes de grandes dimensões

Segundo informações e cálculos de Dyomin Damir Zakharovich “cientista” russo que desafiou a NASA – dizendo que a Agência Espacial Norte Americana errou em seus cálculos, e que nosso planeta vai ser alvo do Asteroide 2016 WF9 que tem 1 km de diâmetro. O corpo celeste em discussão, causou dúvidas e teorias conspiratórias de extinção em massa, podendo ser um asteroide ou cometa sem cauda. Entretanto, este corpo espacial parece não existir na tabela do NEO – Objetos Próximos da Terra.


Na página da NASA – NEO (Near Earth Object) este mensageiro do apocalípse aparece no dia 16 de fevereiro de 2017, porém com identificação diferente e com distâncias astronômicas que não ameaçam a Terra. Será que existe algo sendo ocultado?  Sendo a NASA detentora da tecnologia que monitora o espaço e alimentadora da base de dados do NEO, em quem podemos confiar?


Recentemente, instalações e manutenções foram executadas na Estação Espacial Internacional. Durante a transmissão das imagens, me pareceu, que algum tipo de dispositivo ou arma LASER de grande potência foi instalada. Seria este dispositivo algum tipo de tecnologia destrutiva para evitar a queda de um bólido espacial destruidor em nosso planeta? Estaria a NASA encobrindo uma possível catástrofe planetária?


Analisando as diretrizes técnicas e científicas dos fatos (trajetórias, órbitas e detecções de sondas telescópios potentes voltados para o espaço), avaliando as imagens da ISS (Estação Espacial Internacional), observando a constante queda de meteoros que cruzam o firmamento em várias partes do mundo, posso dizer que algo grande aproxima-se, no entanto não acredito que este corpo celeste, em particular, dito como catalisador apocalíptico de 16 de fevereiro de 2017 impacte contra a Terra.

          Os Anjos Protetores da Terra ou os Extraterrestres que nos Protegem?   
 Deuses Anunnakis - Anjos ou Extraterrestres?


Por Gério Ganimedes

Um mundo azul coberto por uma atmosfera cristalina e cintilante formada pela própria beleza refletida de seus oceanos. Um planeta paradisíaco, reflexo das cores do prisma que os Deuses um dia utilizaram para criá-lo. Num universo infinito a Terra é como um oásis no espaço e parece ter uma redoma de proteção, uma barreira talvez formada por um exército de anjos ou seres extraterrestres que agem como síndicos da Terra. Desde os tempos mais remotos, suas carruagens de fogo cruzaram os céus de nosso mundo e ganharam as interpretações mais diversas de acordo com a visão dos observadores de cada época. Todo este cenário apresentado sempre teve como protagonistas seres de outros mundos narrados como seres alados. Estes seres parecem ser os responsáveis pela pérola azul da Via Láctea. Um paraíso único de um sistema estelar onde o astro supremo que reina é o Sol.

Anjos ou astronautas antigos com 
dispositivos que os permitiam voar?

Seres alados na verdade equipados com dispositivos que os permitiam voar aparecem em diversos registros sagrados gravados em rochas, cavernas e placas de barro como as deixadas pelo povo sumério e também nos hieróglifos egípcios. Estas entidades, ora chamadas de deuses penso terem atravessado o tempo e até hoje sobrevoam os arredores de nosso mundo em períodos críticos. Guerras, catástrofes naturais tais como erupções vulcânicas, terremotos, acidentes tecnológicos como os das usinas nucleares de Fukushima, Chernobyl, experiências com bombas atômicas, testes de mísseis nucleares, parecem chamar o exército da salvação terrestre. 

Anunnakis segundo o povo sumério 
Mas qual a real missão destes seres ou entidades divinas aqui? Curiosamente nas épocas mais remotas, a Terra era facilmente atingida por rochas como meteoritos imensos e grandes asteroides, impactaram com a Terra causando eventos de extinção da vida.  De um passado mais próximo até a atualidade, esses ataques sofridos pelo planeta, de rochas vindas do cosmos me parecem terem sido interceptados, ao menos, ao que se referem as grandes rochas espaciais. 

Meteoro penetrando a atmosfera da Terra
Registrado pela ISS
Estação Espacial Internacional

Os meteoros menores até penetram em nossa atmosfera, entretanto penso que sejam apenas fragmentos resultado da quebra por ataque de tecnologia extraterrestre que há muito protege a Terra, mas acredito que esta intervenção não seja apenas por causa da humanidade, mas principalmente para manter a integridade do planeta.  


  
Existe um registro gravado em vídeo de um corpo celeste que adentrou a atmosfera da Terra e em sua trajetória um suposto óvni dispara com algum tipo de tecnologia na direção do bólido, destruindo e fragmentando a rocha que inevitavelmente atingiria o solo causando grandes estragos. Esta imagem só reforça minha teoria de estamos sob a proteção de seres extraterrestres muito evoluídos que se originam de alguma base próxima, possivelmente localizada em nosso satélite natural - lua, ou se escondem em alguma base localizada aqui mesmo na Terra.


Protetores ou Síndicos da Terra? 


Quando chegaram aqui? De onde vêm? Qual o propósito maior da interferência deles? Anjos enviados por Deus ou Extraterrestres preocupados com a evolução de sua própria criação? Talvez estejamos num laboratório, numa cepa de desenvolvimento sendo monitorados e protegidos por um grupo de cientistas extraterrestres.

          Dalla Polvere alla Vita   

Il planetologo John Chambers e la scrittrice Jacqueline Mitton raccontano la nascita del nostro Sistema Solare, facendo una sintetica e al tempo stesso completa carrellata di tutte le più recenti scoperte di astrofisica e planetologia.

La soluzione del mistero che avvolge le origini del nostro piccolo angolo di Universo un giorno – forse – potrà rispondere alle domande che ci poniamo sulle origini dell'umanità.

Il libro racconta l'avvincente storia di come i corpi celesti che formano il sistema solare siano nati milioni di anni fa e descrive come scienziati e filosofi da secoli provino a svelarne i misteri, mettendo insieme pezzo a pezzo tutti gli indizi che hanno permesso di dedurre l'aspetto dell'universo, la sua età e il modo in cui probabilmente si è formato.

I due autori esaminano lo scenario in cui il Sole è comparso, la nuvola di gas e polveri che lo accompagnavano, poi trasformatasi in pianeti, comete, lune, asteroidi come oggi li vediamo.

Esplorano i modi nei quali ciascun pianeta ha acquisito le caratteristiche uniche che conosciamo, perché alcuni sono divenuti mondi gassosi e altri regni di roccia, e in particolare perché uno tra essi, la nostra Terra, sia così perfetto per l'origine della vita.

Dalla polvere alla vita è una lettura obbligata per chi si interessa alla lunga strada percorsa dal sistema solare. Ci porta alla frontiera della ricerca, si cimenta con le dispute più recenti e rivela come le scoperte di pianeti extra-solari stiano cambiando la comprensione del nostro stesso sistema, della sua straordinaria storia e forse del suo destino.


          Mallona    

Circa 6000 anni fa, nel nostro sistema solare avvenne una catastrofe cosmica di portata inimmaginabile. Là dove oggi orbita lo sciame degli asteroidi - tra Marte e Giove - esisteva il pianeta Mallona, della cui esistenza e successiva distruzione ne siamo venuti a conoscenza solo da un centinaio di anni.

Perché è esploso e chi ha mandato in frantumi questo Pianeta?

Grazie al rarissimo dono della "vista psicometrica", l'autore ricostruisce quanto gli viene rivelato su un anello con incastonata una pietra, raffigurante una figura sconosciuta, proveniente da quel pianeta un tempo splendido di nome 'Mallona', ritrovato durante gli scavi delle fondamenta per la costruzione di un tempio egizio.

Solo così abbiamo saputo come esso era costituito, conosciamo i suoi quattro continenti e le sue lune, ma soprattutto riceviamo informazioni sui suoi abitanti, sulla scienza e tecnica e sui loro costumi di vita.

Purtroppo, l'ambizione e la sete di potere di un re e di un sommo sacerdote ne causarono la distruzione.

Furono sufficienti pochi ma potenti ordigni per far convogliare il mare fino al nucleo magmatico creando una reazione a catena nel sottosuolo, così da innescare dapprima dei terremoti, e poi la fuoriuscita di gas nell'atmosfera, i quali diedero prima la morte ad ogni essere vivente, e infine, lo fecero esplodere frammentandolo in migliaia di pezzi nello spazio planetario, alcuni dei quali caddero anche sulla Terra.

Neanche il monito di Dio, attraverso uomini risvegliati, ebbe effetto su quella civiltà, in cui vinsero la smania di dominio dei potenti, il lusso e i piaceri della vita mondana.

Questo libro ci mostra come una civiltà tecnologicamente avanzata abbia causato la propria distruzione, e ci fa presagire come anche l'uomo di oggi corra il rischio di provocare delle immani catastrofi naturali, mettendo in pericolo il nostro pianeta.

Mallona, con i suoi attuali residui cosmici tra Marte e Giòve, dovrebbe rimanere un monito per la nostra umanità.

          Missione alle Origini dell'Universo    

Un maiale nello spazio? E in quali pianeti potrebbe vivere?

Se lo chiedono George e la sua migliore amica Annie, dopo aver constatato che Freddy, il porcellino regalato dai nonni al ragazzo, è cresciuto troppo per poter stare in giardino.

Intanto, il padre di Annie sta lavorando a un esperimento per scoprire di cosa sia fatto l'Universo e per elaborare, insieme ai suoi colleghi, la Teoria del Tutto, in grado di spiegare ogni fenomeno conosciuto.

Ma contro di lui e contro Terence, il padre di George, trama un'organizzazione segreta, legata alle grandi compagnie petrolifere e intenzionata a sabotare le ricerche sulle fonti di energia pulita. L'unico che può fare qualcosa è il dottor Viktor Ermin, ma George e Annie devono raggiungerlo... in un'altra galassia!

Hawking ci racconta, con la voce sicura e semplice di un grande genio, un viaggio incredibile alle origini della materia, dove le stelle sembrano uguali, ma i sistemi solari distano milioni di anni luce, dove nubi di gas e di materia oscura si alternano a folle di pianeti e asteroidi; dove ogni cosa si è formata nello stesso modo e segue le stesse leggi; e dove, a causa di impercettibili fluttuazioni, ogni cosa è sempre diversa.

Età di lettura: da 11 anni.


          La Grande Avventura dell'Universo    

George vive tranquillo con il suo maiale domestico Fred e i genitori ecologisti... fino al giorno in cui conosce i nuovi vicini di casa: la fantasiosa Annie, il suo papà scienziato Eric, e il potente computer parlante Cosmo, in grado di aprire portali interplanetari.

I due ragazzi intraprendono una serie di emozionanti viaggi nell'Universo, fra comete ghiacciate, tempeste di asteroidi e buchi neri.

Ma sarà uno strano messaggio, forse di origine aliena, a innescare un'incredibile caccia al tesoro nello spazio, alla ricerca di tracce di vita.

Tuttavia, i poteri di Cosmo fanno gola a molti.

George e Annie dovranno proteggere il prezioso strumento da chi, con la scusa di elaborare la Teoria del Tutto per spiegare ogni fenomeno conosciuto, vorrebbe servirsene per i propri piani criminali... Hawking ci racconta, con la voce sicura e semplice di un grande genio, tre viaggi incredibili nell'Universo, intrecciando la fantasia della narrazione con il rigore scientifico delle più recenti scoperte sui misteri dello spazio.

          Pianeti tra le Note   

Una stella, otto pianeti, un centinaio di lune e una miriade di corpi minori tra plutini, asteroidi, comete, satelliti artificiali.

E per ognuno di questi oggetti, spiegazioni scientifiche che condividono la scena con narrazioni dettate dal mito, con visioni della fanstascienza e con suggestioni sonore scaturite dalla penna di grandi compositori.

L'autore prova a districarsi nella babele di idiomi più o meno precisi che da sempre vengono usati dagli uomini per descrivere il Sistema Solare nell'intento di spiegarlo e di rendere il freddo spazio interplanetario un posto più accogliente.

La letteratura, la fisica, il fumetto, l'illustrazione, la musica finalmente cooperano per delineare un possibile percorso, una traiettoria fra le tante, che condurrà il lettore dalle origini del linguaggio fino alla nube di Oort.


          La Chiave Segreta per L'universo   

Un libro prezioso, in una speciale edizione a colori arricchita da tante splendide immagini dell'universo.

I concetti piú astratti e apparentemente inavvicinabili sono resi percepibili attraverso immagini immediate, con la lucidità e l'originalità che solo un genio come Hawking può avere. Il lettore si trova davanti a un Universo che sorride, finalmente comprensibile.

George vive con il suo maiale domestico Fred e due genitori ecoguerrieri che vorrebbero fare del figlio un coltivatore biologico, anche se a lui, piú che a terra, piace guardare in cielo per contare le stelle. Un giorno, grazie a una visita non autorizzata di Fred nel giardino accanto, il ragazzo conosce i suoi nuovi vicini: la fantasiosa Annie, il suo papà scienziato Eric, e anche Cosmo, il computer parlante piú potente del mondo.

Cosmo è in grado di aprire, al centro del soggiorno, una finestra sulla vasta oscurità dello spazio, attraverso la quale i ragazzi scopriranno le meraviglie dell'Universo, come nasce e muore una stella, o come si formano i pianeti. George e Annie viaggeranno su una cometa ghiacciata come una grande palla di neve sporca, affronteranno tempeste di asteroidi e buchi neri, ma soprattutto dovranno proteggere Cosmo da chi vuole impadronirsi dei suoi poteri...


          Tutto Comincia dalle Stelle   

Anche se sembra incredibile, tutto ciò che esiste in natura - gli esseri inanimati come quelli animati, compreso l'uomo - è composto di carbonio, idrogeno, ossigeno, azoto... ovvero degli elementi di cui sono fatte le stelle.

Ed è proprio lì che questi si sono formati, nelle stelle nate dopo la grande esplosione del Big Bang.

Dunque, se vogliamo conoscere i nostri veri "antenati", non ci resta che seguire Margherita Hack in questo viaggio fantastico, che ci porta a 13 miliardi di anni luce dal nostro pianeta.

Alla guida di un'astronave fantascientifica, che attraversa il cielo alla velocità della luce e oltre, Margherita si lancia nello spazio sopra le nostre teste, si ferma a curiosare fra i pianeti del sistema solare, sfiora comete e asteroidi, aggira buchi neri, si immerge nelle nebulose, si tuffa nei bracci a spirale delle galassie.

Gli spettacolari oggetti celesti che incontriamo via via non hanno segreti per la nostra guida che, con l'aiuto del computer di bordo, risponde a tutte le domande e soddisfa ogni possibile curiosità dei viaggiatori: quanto è caldo il Sole? Che cosa succede quando due galassie si scontrano? Che cos'è la materia oscura? Come si misura la distanza di una stella?

Nel racconto della grande astrofisica e di un divulgatore esperto, arricchito da illustrazioni coloratissime e da fotografie, l'evoluzione del cosmo diventa una storia affascinante dedicata ai ragazzi, ma capace di appassionare i lettori di tutte le età.


          Guida Pratica all'Astronomia   

La guida è composta da 15 agili capitoli riccamente illustrati, come un vero e proprio ABC per l'amante del cielo.

Il volume è diviso in due parti, con i seguenti contenuti: L'ABC dell'astrofilo;

  • come orientarsi in cielo: stelle e costellazioni;
  • coordinate celesti;
  • magnitudini stellari;
  • il primo strumento di osservazione;
  • la scelta del telescopio;
  • come usare il telescopio (I e II parte);
  • come fotografare il cielo;
  • fotografare attraverso il telescopio.

L'ABC delle osservazioni: osservare la Luna; osservare i pianeti interni; osservare i pianeti esterni; osservare gli asteroidi e le comete; osservare le stelle variabili e le stelle doppie; osservare gli ammassi stellari, le nebulose e le galassie.

          Strutture Artificiali Extraterrestri   

Avvicinandosi a una delle lune di Saturno (Phoepe), la sonda Cassini immortala in un enorme cratere un oggetto quadrato al cui centro si osserva una formazione a sviluppo ellissoidale. Anomalie geologiche? Sommovimenti della crosta terrestre? Oppure effetti d'interventi non naturali, segnali lasciati nel cosmo da altre intelligenze?

"Siamo tutti proprietà altrui".

Era lo sconcertante parere di Charles Fort, autore di quella rassegna di eventi impossibili che nel 1919 fu pubblicata negli Stati Uniti con il titolo di The Book of the Damned. Siamo proprietà altrui. Nel senso che da qualche parte del cosmo, fuori dalla portata dei nostri telescopi, probabilmente c'è qualcuno che ci è stato progenitore e che adesso ci controlla.

Qualcuno dotato di conoscenze e tecnologie avanzatissime.

Che tuttavia ha lasciato tracce di sé su alcune desolate superfici del nostro sistema solare: la Luna, Marte, gli asteroidi e i satelliti di Saturno.

  • Marzo 1996: Richard Hoagland, ex ricercatore Nasa, studiando le immagini del suolo lunare riprese dalla missione Apollo 10, rileva la presenza di tre strutture apparentemente artificiali, alle quali dà il nome di Shard, Tower e Castle, guglia, torre e castello.
  • Giugno 1976: il Viking fotografa la superficie di Marte e individua una vasta formazione rocciosa strutturata in modo anomalo. Analizzandola, l'astronomo Tobias Owen rileva i tratti di un "volto".
  • Febbraio 2000: la sonda Usa Near atterra sull'asteroide Eros fotografandovi strutture insolitamente geometriche.
  • Giugno 2004: avvicinandosi a Phoebe, una delle lune di Saturno, la sonda Cassini immortala in un enorme cratere un oggetto quadrato al cui centro si osserva una formazione a sviluppo ellissoidale.

Anomalie geologiche?
Bizzarrie del suolo dovute a sommovimenti della crosta rocciosa?

Oppure effetti di interventi non-naturali, e quindi artefatti,
segnali lasciati nel cosmo come traccia di qualcosa?
Ma da chi?

Non siamo soli nell'universo.

È l'inquietante ipotesi prospettata da questo libro. Che ci guida lungo una serie di testimonianze autorevoli e di rilevazioni dirette, in compagnia di scienziati, scrittori e navigatori celesti. Alla ricerca di una possibilità ormai non più così remota: quella di essere tutti, a dispetto del nostro orgoglio antropocentrico, proprietà altrui.

Ecclesia Digital

Por Alfonso V. Carrascosa Santiago
 

Un año más el 30 de junio se celebra el ‘Asteroid Day’ o Día del Asteroide, un evento internacional que como objetivo acercar el conocimiento de los asteroides a la sociedad. La verdad es que conocer más sobre algo no está en principio mal, pero probablemente esta fiesta o celebración ignore algo que es de justicia recordar: quiénes fueron quienes comenzaron con el estudio de los asteroides y, por extensión, quienes fundaron la astronomía universal: muchos de ellos pertenecieron a la Iglesia Católica. El primer asteroide, Ceres, lo descubrió un cura católico: Giuseppe Piazzi.

Dice Wikipedia sobre Piazzi que en la noche del 1 de enero de 1801, haciendo su catálogo de estrellas, Piazzi encontró un objeto en la constelación del Toro que se movía sobre el fondo estelar. El 26 de marzo comunicó en la Academia Prusiana de las Ciencias el hallazgo y dio ordenes para que se publicase en la revista Monatliche Correspondenz. Lo llamó Cerere Ferdinandea en honor a la diosa patrona de Sicilia y al rey Fernando, pero terminó denominándose por la comunidad astronómica Ceres.

También en Wikipedia podemos encontrar información sobre este sacerdote teatino, que estudió religión en la escuela por un tubo, lo cual no le impidió ser el descubridor del primer asteroide. Piazzi se hizo sacerdote teatino hacia 1764. Fue nombrado profesor de teología en Roma en 1779, y profesor de matemáticas superiores en la Academia de Palermo en 1780. Fundó el Observatorio de Palermo donde confeccionó su gran catálogo estelar, descubrió Ceres, demostró que la mayoría de las estrellas están en movimiento respecto al Sol; y observó el elevado desplazamiento propio de la importante estrella doble 61 Cygni.

En el Museo Nacional de Ciencias Naturales de Madrid hoy a las 12.00 h, y para conmemorar el Día del Asteroide 2017, se mostrará la intervención de la artista Julia Llerena en una pequeña vitrina con meteoritos de la colección de Geología. Esta intervención estará expuesta en la segunda planta de la sala de geología hasta el 3 de septiembre.

          Apophis podría sufrir deslizamientos en su aproximación a la Tierra   
Para celebrar el primer día oficial de los asteroides, a lo largo del fin de semana republicaremos artículos sobre estos pequeños cuerpos con la finalidad de aprender más sobre ellos.


El sexto artículo, y último, que he elegido es: "Apophis podría sufrir deslizamientos en su aproximación a la Tierra"
Un equipo de investigadores, compuesto por científicos de EE.UU., China y Francia han realizado simulaciones informáticas que revelan que un asteroide que pasará cerca de la Tierra en 2029 podría sufrir deslizamientos menores. En un artículo publicado en la revista Icarus, describen los parámetros de entrada que emplearon  y los resultados obtenidos.

 El asteroide Apophis se acercará a aproximadamente 35.000 kilómetros de la Tierra el 13 de abril de 2029. El número 13, unido a que este día cae en viernes, han provocado que surjan todo tipo de especulaciones catastróficas sin ninguna base científica. La Tierra estará a salvo. Pero el que sí puede sufrir percances es el propio asteroide. ¿Por qué? Porque la Tierra ejercerá una fuerza gravitatoria sobre él. Los científicos han tratado de determinar con sus simulaciones los efectos que tendrá esta fuerza sobre Apophis.


Los investigadores no poseen fotografías detalladas de Apophis. Pero sí poseen imágenes de alta resolución del asteroide Itokawa, tomadas por la sonda Hayabusa. Ambos cuerpos poseen tamaños similares y sus composiciones también podrían ser parecidas. Las imágenes de Itokawa mostraron que este asteroide estaba formado, no por un sólo cuerpo compacto, sino por la aglomeración de rocas de diferentes tamaños que permanecen juntas debido a su atracción gravitatoria. Es por ello, que el asteroide presentaba diferentes densidades en su anatomía.

Itokawa
 Si Apophis tiene una estructura similar a la de Itokawa, es posible que su estructura se vea afectada por la gravedad terrestre, pudiendo llegar a sufrir deslizamientos. Para saber en qué medida podría ocurrir, los científicos realizaron las simulaciones informáticas teniendo en cuenta no sólo la atracción gravitatoria terrestre, sino también la fuerza centrífuga debida a la rotación del asteroide, las fuerzas de inercia, y otros factores.

Las simulaciones mostraron que era probable que Apophis experimentara deslizamientos suaves y lentos así como el movimiento de pequeñas rocas por su superficie. Si esto sucede, los científicos podrían estudiar zonas más profundas del asteroide lo que aportaría datos valiosísimos sobre la evolución de este tipo de objetos.

          NASA Simulation Shows Asteroid As It Slams Into The Atmosphere   

NASA has developed a 3D model of an asteroid hitting earth’s atmosphere at 45,000 miles per hour using a supercomputer. They hope the simulation will help them deal with potential future asteroids on a collision course with earth.

          NASA To Deflect Asteroid Away From Earth Using Fridge-Sized 'Bullet'   

NASA has taken the next step in its bold mission to protect the planet from potentially lethal asteroids.

Known as the Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART), the mission involves firing a fridge-sized projectile at nine times the speed of a bullet at an incoming asteroid.

The hope is that the sheer force of the projectile when it collides with the asteroid will be enough to push it off course and steer it away from a potential collision with Earth.

Before you all start putting bags on your heads it's important to note that there's absolutely nothing to worry about, DART is nothing more than a test to prove that the system can work if called upon.

As such the team have targeted a non-lethal asteroid pair called Didymos that has two known near-Earth approaches in October 2022, and then again in 2024.

Travelling from Earth the spacecraft would use an advanced targeting system to fly to Didymos whereupon it would take aim at Didymos B, the smaller of the two asteroids.

Accelerating at a speed of 3.7 miles per second (or nine times the speed of a bullet), the refrigerator-sized object will then smash into Didymos B.

Thanks to its close proximity to Earth, NASA's scientists will be able to use Earth-based observatories to then monitor the impact and the resulting change in orbit.

"DART is a critical step in demonstrating we can protect our planet from a future asteroid impact," said Andy Cheng of The Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory in Laurel, Maryland, the DART investigation co-lead.

"Since we don't know that much about their internal structure or composition, we need to perform this experiment on a real asteroid. With DART, we can show how to protect Earth from an asteroid strike with a kinetic impactor by knocking the hazardous object into a different flight path that would not threaten the planet."

Didymos is in many ways the perfect system to experiment on. By targeting the smaller of the two they can guarantee a change in orbit and yet still not affect the much much larger Didymos A's orbit around the Sun.

Lindley Johnson, planetary defense officer at NASA Headquarters in Washington, said: "This approval step advances the project toward an historic test with a non-threatening small asteroid."

While small asteroids hit Earth almost daily, almost all of them are burnt up in the planet's atmosphere.

Objects larger than 0.6 miles however are far rarer and due to their potentially cataclysmic affect on the planet, are a significant priority for NASA.

          Interstellar Space: Genesis: Neuer Name für Project Space Sector und Pre-Alpha bald spielbar für Vorbesteller   
Das Strategiespiel Project Space Sector hat einen neuen Namen: Per Pressemitteilung geben die Entwickler bekannt, dass der Titel ab sofort als Interstellar Space: Genesis bezeichnet wird. Darüber hinaus wird angekündigt, dass man ab dem 12. Juli den aktuellen und spielbaren Pre-Alpha-Build im Rahmen für Vorbesteller zur Verfügung stellen will. Zwar plant man neben Umsetzungen für Mac und Linux auch eine Veröffentlichung über Steam, doch ist ein Download vorerst nur über das Humble Widget möglich.

Das Team von SpaceSector.com sieht es als seine Mission an, mit Interstellar Space: Genesis einen spirituellen Nachfolger von Master of Orion 2 zu entwickeln und damit Fans von komplexen sowie rundenbasierten 4X-Strategiespielen im Weltraum anzusprechen. Was die Entwickler alles planen und versprechen, verrät ein Blick auf unsere Ankündigungs-News oder die folgende Übersicht zu den Game Features aus der Pressemitteilung:

  • Turn-based tactical combat: We keep with the Master of Orion 2 formula but with some novelties for an even deeper and satisfying experience
  • Ship design: customize your ships, send them to battle and witness the results of your creation in action with full control
  • Free space-based movement with range limits: Your ships can travel to every star as long as there’s no celestial object in the way and the destination is in supply range
  • Race customization: Design your own races with their advantages, disadvantages and special abilities for increased fun, variety and challenge
  • Leaders: Leaders have not only abilities but also traits and desires for additional personality. Leaders accumulate experience, level up and you can choose which primary skills they improve and even which secondary skills they obtain or upgrade
  • Deep colony development and terraforming: You can see the colony close, see the buildings there. You can build planetary improvements, empire projects and even wonders. The worlds are procedurally generated. So, each game will have different planets and terrain views. You can see your planets evolve, and no planet is equal.
  • Random tech trees: Not all techs are present in every game and players may have different tech trees in each game. Research artifacts that boost certain research fields and unique techs that can only be found in derelicts or ruins exploration
  • Races with different ideal planet types: Play with races that prefer different environments since they have different biochemistries, unique abilities and special characteristics
  • Rich and reliable diplomacy system: You can make and break treaties with the alien races for trade, mining rights, research treaties and alliances. Expect lots of personality, a reliable system (player understands what’s going on) and meaningful and real cooperation
  • Varied and deep exploration mechanics: A more realistic galaxy, with black holes, neutron stars, exotic stars, brown dwarfs, white dwarfs, nebulae, asteroid belts and rogue planets, all playing a role in our gameplay model. Some of which will need to be revealed as you play!
  • Define your space civilization wants and desires: Shape the way your empire explores the stars and develops by choosing which cultural path you shall take in each game. Will you be an adventurer, a tycoon or a knowledge seeker?
  • Deep economic model: Mine asteroids for minerals, volatiles or study them for research. Exploit interstellar tourism and research and strategic resources that unlock new key technologies and provide other advantages
  • Espionage: Steal technologies, conduct sabotage and frame others

          NASA concept video shows how we might save Earth from rogue asteroids   

NASA concept video shows how we might save Earth from rogue asteroidsWe've all seen those blockbuster movies in which scientists lay out complicated, risky plans to save Earth from an incoming asteroid. And those plans are almost always dependent on a bit of luck.  But what would really happen in real life?  NASA thinks it has an answer, and the space agency demonstrated that solution in a concept video (below) posted on Friday.  SEE ALSO: This is how NASA spots potentially dangerous asteroids near Earth The video shows NASA's Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART) vehicle deliberately crashing itself into one component of the binary asteroid system called Didymos.  "DART would be NASA’s first mission to demonstrate what's known as the kinetic impactor technique — striking the asteroid to shift its orbit — to defend against a potential future asteroid impact," Lindley Johnson, planetary defense officer at NASA, said in a statement in June.  The plan is part of an international effort to develop a planetary defense program to address asteroids that might pose a danger to Earth.  The kinetic impact test will be carried out years from now, beginning with the first part of the mission in 2020 with the launch of two spacecraft, and execution of the test occurring in 2022.  In addition to NASA, partners in the plan include the European Space Agency (ESA), the Observatoire de la Côte d´Azur (OCA), and the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (JHU/APL).  It may be years before we find out if this is effective, but at least we're finally coming up with extinction-level event asteroid contingency plans that don't include migrating to Mars with Elon Musk.  WATCH: SpaceX did something amazing over the weekend



          Mutants and Monsters   


\

Mutations can occur for many reasons, as in the whole process of cell division to create life, something can go wrong. Some are created by exposure to drugs during pregnancy, like thalidomide once given out in the 1950s and 1960s for morning sickness that caused defects in the limbs of the children born.



In the case of frogs, they can be a good indicator of pollution issues in waterways because their legs will grow oddly because they are affected by pollution in the delicate larval stage when limb buds are forming.



Sometimes, a mutation is an odd throwback gene from somewhere in the heritage, like hypertrichosis (wolf man syndrome) 



This baby (below) born in Nepal died soon after of neural defects associated with anencephaly.



Polydactyly is a common mutation - extra digits on hands and feet.




Conjoined twins, fetuses attached to a host twin, are also common mutations that can occur.





Maybe not Godzilla, but this earless bunny was born near Fukishima after the breach.  It raises fears for the humans.



Chernobyl meltdown showed us a longer time-line of what can occur to animals and to humans. The human deformities and mutations were dramatic and tragic. There is only time before Fukishima produces the same results as this frog, as well as humans. 



Mutations are created by nature. They are not terrifying, though sometimes they are crippling or tragic.

But there are fictional mutations portrayed as monsters in movies that came from the 1950s Sci Fi genre and 1970s ecology-fearful movies. There was a concern for just how big, how awful, how mutated creatures could become because of man's interference. Those anxieties played out in movies. 


"Them!"

"Prophecy"

"Godzilla"

"Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles"

"The Toxic Avenger"

"This Island Earth"

"They Came From Outer Space"

"The Incredible Shrinking Man"

Here's some of my meme's on the subject of fictional mutant monsters. I have entitled them "It isn't easy being a monster in a human world" -

          Respuesta a: Sony vuelve a mentir y utiliza un vídeo de Anthem funcionando en Xbox One X   

Como jugador que soy desde que Asteroids pululaba por los salones recreativos (que no fanático de una marca en concreto)

En general estoy totalmente de acuerdo contigo Yo también jugaba a videojuegos hace 30 años y aunque si me declaro fan de Xbox,estoy muy muy cansado de las “console wars” En los 90s también teníamos los eternos debates de Nintendo vs SEGA,pero no llega a los niveles de pedantería que podemos leer en Internet hoy en día… SALUDOS

 

Disculpa que escriba de nuevo, no se muy bien cómo hacer quote antiguo una vez posteado.

Exactamente. Uno puede ser fanático de cierta marca (yo tengo predilección por un poco de las tres) pero la guerra de consolas es un peligro bastante serio del que nadie se ha dado cuenta. En el colegio estaban esos debates porque en aquellos tiempos las consolas eran bastante caras y nuestros padres solo podían comprarnos una de entre la selección que había. Era o una de Nintendo o una de SEGA. Además teníamos poca edad y aunque nuestros padres pudieran permitirse el capricho de comprarse varias, nuestra edad no era la adecuada para ello. Ahora esa gente tenemos más edad y sueldo propio que podemos gastar en nuestros hobbies, por lo que tenemos más consolas a mano (además hay tiendas de intercambio, más ofertas, internet para hacer trueques con foreros, wallapop etc..) Está todo más a mano, cosa que antes no. De todas maneras todavía sigue habiendo gente que ama las console war como tu dices. Y a veces, incluso por parte de gente que tiene todas las consolas. Yo me compré la primera Xbox solo para jugar, una vez más, a Shenmue (y lo tengo en DC) y (no me tiréis piedras) a Dino Crisis 3. Si te gustan los videojuegos te da igual la marca, lo importante es eso, los juegos.

Como jugador que soy desde que Asteroids pululaba por los salones recreativos (que no fanático de una marca en concreto), me da mucha pena que ese tipo de noticias se conviertan en ataques o en un intento de desprestigiar a las demás marcas, seas cuales sean, con tal de intentar ganar un puntito de hombría, sacar pecho, ningunear a los demás o… no se, no entiendo el motivo de hacerlo de esta manera.

Antes de hablar así sobre otras compañías (repito, me da igual de quien, no soy fanático de ninguna) habría que mirarse un poco el ombligo antes de despotricar sobre los demás. Por ejemplo y sin ir más lejos (primeros enlaces de Google): https://www.cnet.com/news/was-microsoft-using-ps4-watch-dogs-footage-on-youtube/

Y estoy seguro de que han habido muchos más casos de este tipo desde que Microsoft entró en el mercado. De hecho se que hay más casos que ahora no recuerdo que afectaban a las dos marcas, pero no he podido hacer memoria.

Por otra parte, si hablamos de MENTIR, que es la palabra clave aquí que se usa con tal de ofender y difamar, podríamos empezar a hablar de cómo nos MIENTEN las compañías y desarrolladoras mostrando cosas que luego no son así o que corren bajo un PC hipervitaminado, o es la versión de X consola modificada para que tenga logos de Y consola. Y eso sin hablar de las fotos, las cuales casi todas las que publican están retocadas para verse mejor de lo que en realidad lucen (todavía recuerdo notas de prensa con imágenes de juegos a cerca de 6K de resolución).

Por otra parte está el hecho de que ¿quién sabe si lo ha hecho PlayStation o la propia EA? ¿Y si lo ha hecho PlayStation obligada por los de arriba, no tenían nada que subir y EA les ha dicho que hagan eso?

Ya digo, como jugador que soy (y repito, no estoy a favor ni de una ni de otras porque suelo comprarme todas las consolas que salgan al mercado para DISFRUTAR de lo bueno de todas ellas) me duele mucho este tipo de ataques. Además os habéis reído de las publicaciones españolas casi afirmando que ninguna pondría esta noticia cuando ya hay varias importantes que ya lo han hecho.

Podría explayarme un poco más y de hecho he borrado bastantes datos significativos que podrían ayudar a abordar el tema, pero lo importante creo que ya está dicho.  En fin, disfrutad de los juegos y dejad de mirar en paja ajena cuando en la de cada uno hay cosas que buscar.

 

Saludos!
