The Blackness in the middle is the earth against the storm of gamma rays that make up "space'

The universe contains about 20% more high-energy radiation than previously thought, according to a new and unusual set of observations. If confirmed, the data would bring the levels of high energy radiation into agreement with previous measurements of lower energy radiation.

The results come from observations in January and February 2006 of high-energy X-rays and gamma rays that contribute to the "cosmic high-energy background". Most of this radiation is thought to come from very distant, supermassive black holes.

NASA's High Energy Astrophysics Observatory-1 last measured this radiation in the late 1970s. It found that the total amount of high-energy radiation was about 20% less than expected from extrapolations of studies of lower energy X-rays.


This article strangely centers on the "sat" rather than the findings. Space has 20% MORE high-energy radiation that previously "thought" by the experts at the time. So my issue is how does that get recalculated into the global warming matrix? Could we get hotter faster? Has it increased since the 70's to account for earth warming? Can gamma superheat the earth's core?
