I so love the way NASA explains things.

Anyway they have sent up so many solar observing sats, and other devices, makes me wonder why all of a sudden its so important. But thanks NASA, you do open my eyes to some truth. :}

"THEMIS has also observed a number of relatively small explosions in Earth's magnetic bow shock. "The bow shock is like the bow wave in front of a boat," explains Sibeck. "It is where the solar wind first feels the effects of Earth's magnetic field." When a knot of magnetism within the solar wind hits the bow shock--"Bang!" he says. "We get an explosion."

The technical term for these explosions is "hot flow anomalies" or HFAs. HFAs boost the temperature of solar wind particles ten-fold (as high as 10 million degrees) and they can stop the solar wind dead its tracks. "This is no mean achievement considering the fact that the solar wind moves at supersonic speeds near a million miles per hour."

It dosnt say where this heat goes, but seems to me that 10 million degree solar wind could heat up some part of our atmosheric layers. So they don't really say it has anything to do with global warming or climate change, but seems like it could. So how many of these so called HFAs hit our planet's magneticfield during solar max? Guess we will have to wait a few more years to find out, but in the mean time, lets sell carbon credits and make some bank, lol.

Heres the link again if you missed it at the top:

yeah, bushman, global warming dreamt up by politicians and scientists who put what the politicians want them to into scientific jargon, the masses can't read or understand, so the good old masses wil pay the ticket, foot the bill, and the underground survival shelter cities will have a workable econmy in place for the cruncher...yahoo! Aware of the following are ya?

Scientists Now Know: We're Not From Here!

Summary & comments by Dan Eden for Viewzone

Imagine the shock of growing up in a loving family with people you call "Mum" and "Dad" and then, suddenly, learning that you are actually adopted!

This same sense of shock came as scientists announced that the Sun, the Moon, our planet and its siblings, were not born into the familiar band of stars known as the Milky Way galaxy, but we actually belong to a strange formation with the unfamiliar name of the Sagittarius Dwarf galaxy!

How can this be?

Using volumes of data from the Two-Micron All Sky Survey (2MASS), a major project to survey the sky in infrared light led by the University of Massachusetts, the astronomers are answering questions that have baffled scientists for decades and proving that our own Milky Way is consuming one of its neighbors in a dramatic display of ongoing galactic cannibalism. The study published in the Astrophysical Journal, is the first to map the full extent of the Sagittarius galaxy and show in visually vivid detail how its debris wraps around and passes through our Milky Way. Sagittarius is 10,000 times smaller in mass than the Milky Way, so it is getting stretched out, torn apart and gobbled up by the bigger Milky Way.
