Humans have accidentally created a protective bubble around Earth by using very low frequency (VLF) radio transmissions to contact submarines in the ocean. It sounds nuts, but according to recent research published in Space Science Reviews, underwater communication through VLF channels has an outer space dimension.

...

Satellites in certain high-altitude orbits, such as NASA's particle-watching Van Allen Probes, have observed these VLF ripples creating an "impenetrable boundary," a phrase coined by study co-author Dan Baker, director of the University of Colorado's Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics. This doesn't mean impenetrable to spacecraft or asteroids, per se, but rather to potentially harmful particle showers created by turbulent space weather.

The boundary extends out to the inner edge of the Van Allen radiation belts, which are bands of charged particles created from the clash of the solar wind against Earth's magnetic field. The VLF bubble might actually be pushing the Van Allen belts farther into space, suggests Baker, considering that they have receded farther from Earth since the 1960s, when VLF use was not as widespread.

ETA: Next, scientists are figuring out whether the VLF bubble can be used to purify the near-Earth environment from charged particles, which would make humanity a little safer.

Mods, if this thread belongs in the Science & Tech forum, feel free to move. But this seems like a good fit.

At first, I thought, how cool is that! Then I finally got it. VLFs are pushing one of the Van Allen belts out further from the earth! (We have two, the VLFs are pushing the inner one outward. Wikipedia). Not just a small portion but the entire bubble size has increased. Without the VA belts cosmic rays and the solar wind can do what seems to have happened to Mars, scour away our atmosphere!

The VA belts are the magnetic field lines that traps the energetic space weather. I would think that the further out they are pushed the weaker they become.

My questions are, can the Van Allen belt be pushed too far out? And like an over inflated balloon, pop? What happens to us here on the surface? How long would magnetic reconnection take?

Anyway, this story went from cool to scary in a couple seconds. Thoughts?

Could this be a potential way of restoring the atmosphere to Mars by making a protective barrier using this technology

Very cool thread!!
Now I'm just gonna hang out till someone pops along and explain the science of it.


Plus ask a question. I've been coming across references that the earths magnetic field is weakening. Any way by chance it's us doing it with the VLF? Unknowingly?

It wasn't accidental, nor is it new. But the fact that they're going public is unbelievable. Someone must have discovered it and they couldn't keep covering it up...parts of it must have degraded or just stopped working since they had the damn thing turned all the way up. So they made it sound like a happy little space accident and all the good little humans just opened up and swallowed it like it was a treat.

If they start talking about the ice shelf in Antarctica in the next few days, I'm going to owe someone a steak dinner. Just when you start doubting something, it turns around and starts giving every reason to believe. This answers so many questions for me. Thank you for posting.

There was an idea of flying a satellite out to one of Mars' La Grange points facing the sun. Once there, deploy an electromagnet. It will shield the atmosphere, mostly, but mostly it would allow one to form and not be ripped away during every solar storm.

It is a good idea to be able to grow an atmosphere. I'm just not sure were should be messing with ours.

science alert - New Study Shows How Rapidly Earth's Magnetic Field Is Changing.

Not just weakening but the north pole is also drifting. The thought being this might be the start of a magnetic pole shift. Since modern humans have not lived through one they're not sure how long it would take.

VLFs being the cause? Who knows. They just discovered this VA belt interaction using a couple satellites sent to specifically study them. It could be a natural cycle like carbon dioxide that we sped up? IDK. Just a though.

Yeah, the tone of this article is, "Aren't humans great even when they Forrest Gump it." Which is why I was kind of shocked when the enormity of this hit me. We could wipe the slate clean so to speak. While TPTB ride it out in DUMBs. Great....

What if the flip of our magnetic field is having an influence of our VA belt. This could be a natural occurrence. Radio waves having this much effect, I really don't see it. I do see the bubble we are making coming in handy if the our magnetic flip turns off the field for a period if time.

It's going to be so cool watching the compass flip. GPS will have a lot of updates to download. Just hope we all don't burn. I don't think ELE's correspond with MF's.

Very cool find

This is very disturbing information.

It's like these little details that make the biggest impact.

Thanks for sharing, this is a very big deal.
We probably shouldn't be messing with the Van Allen Belts....

Bad news...

I admit I have no idea what you're suggesting here.

What "thing" ? HAARP and similar facilities?
What do you mean it "wasn't accidental"?

How does the ice shelf in Antarctica relate to this?

It is not the Van Allen belts which prevent the solar wind from striping away Earth's atmosphere, it is the Earth's magnetic field. The Van Allen belts are the result of that protection. Charged particles are trapped (and collected) by the field and are thus prevented from reaching the upper atmosphere. The belts are the regions in which those particles are concentrated.

Just as the magnetic field traps those particles, VLF radio waves can move them. It is the trapped particles which are affected, not the magnetic field. It's been known about for some time.

Sure! Something weird started happening to the sun in 2012. That's when it started looking white and small and would burn painfully if I stayed in it more than a couple of minutes, and this thin, milky haze stayed constant in the sky for at least six months straight. Not from the changes, but because they put up an electromagnetic grid to protect the planet, filter the sun's weird energy, and hide the fact that the sun was way hotter and more damaging than it had been just months before. It has other functions, too. Electromagnetic energy has lots of different applications. Especially on other electromagnetic fields. Like the one present in the human body, for instance. And the natural one around the planet...the one that wouldn't withstand an EMP if it were weakened.

The sun gave off this cold looking weak light, and if you stepped into the shade, it was chilly...even in the dead of summer. That's because they were blocking the hottest rays with the bubble. But it's getting harder to do...and we're feeling it. Last summer, roofers were having to work at night to finish jobs because they were getting burned alive, even at barely ten in the morning.

The sun is getting ready to sneeze, but they're not certain when. So they have us covered. Literally. The sun would probably make us deadly sick right now if they weren't blocking it. And they don't want people to panic and start killing each other (such a silly excuse to use), so they tell themselves it's in our best interest to lie to the public and make people like myself who can see it out to be crazy and/or stupid and/or both. But if they just treated us like adults and stopped lying and obfuscating, we might just all figure something amazing out together.

Stay out of the direct sun for more than a few minutes. It is too dangerous to risk getting burned. Skin cancer is becoming alarmingly common. The bubble filters it, but not very well because it's starting to get even more intense. If it's hazy, it's filtering. If it's blindingly bright and the sky looks crystal clear, don't stay out in it for long. I found this out the hard way. Twice, because I was too stupid to learn the first time.

Go outside when the sun is straight up in the sky, and see how far you can look up starting from the ground, before you have to look away. No shades. Yesterday, I was able to look slightly below eye level directly in front of me before my eyes started streaming tears. I am 5'5". It's getting bad.

Something I think is pretty funny though...the greenhouse effect people were right all along. They just failed at blaming the right culprit. Easy mistake. It's not opaque. It's translucent, and they mask it with artificial clouds. Guess how they make them stay put. 😜

There are other things up there too that they're having trouble keeping hidden. No one would believe me, but that will be revealed too. It's really exciting to see it finally being proven, but I've seen it for years. I'm not even mad at the assholes who took so much joy in belittling me for that. I know I was right, and now I'm putting things together, which is what I wanted anyway. Answers that lead me to more questions and more answers.

I think things are about to get more interesting than we ever could have thought. This convinced me. It's about time.

The thing I'm referring to is the bubble. They like to use cute, non-threatening descriptors...keeps the people lulled.

But if a bubble sounds less serious; just a lighthearted, carefree accidental gargantuan bubble that just willy nilly came along on some safe little serendipitous radio waves and oopsie...enveloped an entire planet so completely that it actually got upgraded for a while to a cocoon...well, then they can call it a bubble or a nice, safe, cozy cocoon.

I'll call it what it really is, which is a barrier of electromagnetic energy. It is an energy grid and it's adjustable. For the purpose of this discussion, it blocks the sun, which is getting hotter and more unstable and can cause rapid onset melanoma, which is on the rise and has been for about five years now, alarmingly so.

Some people see the grid and others cannot. I can, and the way I see it has suddenly changed since a few months ago. It makes the sky appear to be rendered, like game graphics. A fake sky. And every person who has talked about seeing the fake sky has been ridiculed, harassed, and in general treated like # for it...including myself. Well, at least they finally admitted it...even though it's been there for at least five years.

As for Antarctica being related...it's all related. It's the same technology or an offshoot of it. I was expecting the ancient ruins under the ice to be revealed first. The barrier reveal came out of left field, but I'm still happy, because it's progress. They must be waiting on Antarctica for some reason. That's why Tom DeLonge is being told to stall. They're planning to use his franchise to launch the reveal. I wish they'd hurry up. I hate waiting.

Like you I observe differences outside and the sheer number of times the sky was clear at dawn and by 9AM was covered by a fine haze of high thin clouds was alarming. A couple of years ago it got to the point of me just giving up and deciding the next couple of generations of children just weren't ever going to know what a "normal" sky looked like.

One thing you didn't mention, but I think is important is any rain or snow we've gotten isn't saturating the ground like it used to. It seems to evaporate much more than penetrating deeply. I garden so dig a few inches down the dirt is bone dry. Even after a week of rain. ??? I find it very unusual and thought to myself whatever is going on with the "sky haze" has something to do with the soluble properties of the water/rain?

Kinda like how chemicals are added to make skin creams and such more absorbable? But in reverse. The rain just isn't as absorbable anymore and either runs off or evaporates before getting into the ground. And yes I know that CA is still having mud slides etc....however they have a different geology and dirt composition than we do in the Appalachians.

I couldn't help but be reminded of DDT, amongst other things that share the same principle, reading through this. I'm sure there's a lesson to be learned here somewhere...

Do you know if this has caused the Auroras to be less powerful than they were prior to the current era?
I'm not sure we have enough data to determine that but, at least theoretically, such additional 'protection' would result in things like a weaker Aurora effect??
