Space radiation hits record high


www.newscientist.com

Now, the influx of galactic cosmic rays into our solar system has reached a record high. Measurements by NASA's Advanced Composition Explorer (ACE) spacecraft indicate that cosmic rays are 19 per cent more abundant than any previous level seen since space flight began a half century ago."The space era has so far experienced a time of relatively low cosmic ray activity," says Richard Mewaldt of Caltech, who is a member of the ACE team. "We may now be returning to levels typical of past centuries."

Some other members and I have been talking about this for some years, but for the most part we were never believed even though the evidence was pointing to this fact.

We are at a stage when the Solar System is being bombarded by space radiation more than for the last century or more, and this not only affects space weather, but it also affects the Earth, every other planet, and moon with an atmosphere in the Solar system, as well as the Sun.

The article further states:

That may be a sign that the unusually active sun of the past 100 years or so is returning to the historical norm of lower activity, or even entering a so-called grand minimum of exceptionally low activity that could last centuries.

Scientists can infer variations in the sun's magnetic activity over the past 10,000 years from the abundance of rare isotopes in Greenland ice cores.

But who knows, maybe the Sun will return to the high level of activity in which it was for the past 100 years or so, or maybe we will enter another Little Ice Age, only the future can tell.

Perhaps some members might remember my old posts about the fact that more space dust was entering our Solar System, and according to calculations by NASA, and ESA, the amount of space dust entering our Solar System would be exponentially increasing until about 2012.


ESA sees stardust storms heading for Solar System

PRESS RELEASE
Date Released: Monday, August 18, 2003
Source: Artemis Society

Until ten years ago, most astronomers did not believe stardust could enter our Solar System. Then ESA's Ulysses spaceprobe discovered minute stardust particles leaking through the Sun's magnetic shield, into the realm of Earth and the other planets. Now, the same spaceprobe has shown that a flood of dusty particles is heading our way.
...........
What is surprising in this new Ulysses discovery is that the amount of stardust has continued to increase even after the solar activity calmed down and the magnetic field resumed its ordered shape in 2001.

Scientists believe that this is due to the way in which the polarity changed during solar maximum. Instead of reversing completely, flipping north to south, the Sun's magnetic poles have only rotated at halfway and are now more or less lying sideways along the Sun's equator. This weaker configuration of the magnetic shield is letting in two to three times more stardust than at the end of the 1990s. Moreover, this influx could increase by as much as ten times until the end of the current solar cycle in 2012.

www.spaceref.com...

If more space dust is entering our Solar system, it means more charged particles, and even at least some more gases, and even plasma is entering the Solar System, all which are part of the medium in which our solar system floats is in, and which do affect the dynamics of the Solar System, as well as the climate on Earth.

Kind of strange that this date coincides with the Maya calendar.

well its known that the sun has high peaks and low peaks. so maybe we are in the middle of the high right now. 100,000 years seems a lot for us but its mere days for something as old as our sun and galaxy. i think its just a natural process.

Hmmm some-one should send that info to Al Gore.
Fluctuating weather patterns.
Decreased solar output.
Increased cosmic rays.
Obviously man-made!

its interesting to note that the "scientits" themselves cant seem to agree on where all this cosmic radiation is coming from. And isnt our (earths) magnetic field supposed to be getting weaker? AND are not there reports of the sun being more active now than it has been in the last 100 years and that is why all the planets in the solar system are heating up? So whats the real deal here? Is the Sun getting weaker or stronger?

On a serious note, i am wondering just how intense it's going to get.
Our solar system is drifting into the dense part of the Galactic disc at the moment as it crosses the Galactic equator.
Betelgeuse is ripe for supernova.
Also the threat of Galactic super-waves.
All this just when our sun decides to take a nap.
The idea of Gamma ray bursts being responsible for Macro-mutation keeps crossing my mind also.
We shall see.

The activity of the Sun was getting stronger, and was stronger in the last 60-100 years more than for 1,000 years. But since the end of 2005 the Sun's activity has slowed down to a crawl, meanwhile the Earth's magnetic field has been weakening since 1845, and it is now weaker than it has been for thousands of years. It is believed that this is happening to Earth's magnetic field because it is starting to flip. like it did last time about 800,000 years ago.

The Sun's activity has remained at a slow crawl for the past 3+ years , and the last time this occurred was over 100 years ago. If it continues the way it is now, we will enter a new Little Ice Age, or worse, a new Ice Age, instead of the warming which the environmentalist have been claiming about.

This information shows that the UN, the policymakers, Al Gore, and the groups that were demanding for changes now, and for more taxes against CO2, were only trying to use this to frighten people into compliance, and the reason why the Obama administration, and the UN, among others, want to implement their environmental dictatorial rules as soon as possible, is because soon enough everyone will find out that the whole Global Warming claim, that is the claim that mankind is the cause for Climate Change, was, and is nothing more than a scam to control people, and to squeeze us of more money just to make the elite richer.

So your saying not only will we have to deal with Cosmic rays from out of space bombarding us with our weak magnetic field we also will have to contend with a colder sun? Great any other good news.

This same topic was posted earlier. A very good discussion went on there.

I started a thread on this earlier today if anyone wants to comment there as well:

Really interesting article and not sure what to make of it, thanks OP!
