The recent posts on the subject of gamma ray bubbles forming on the top and bottom of our galaxy perked the little tinfoil
hatter inside of me. So I’m sending out a plea to more experienced tinfoil hatters to see if any of you can help me with a thought that has been
going through my mind.
First off do Gamma rays travel at the speed of light? If so are the Gama ray Bubbles expanding?
After doing a little research on gamma rays I noticed that they can be quite nasty to plant life (plankton in particular) and can do damage to DNA. It
also can cause damage to our ozone layer according to one article I read.
So my question to everyone is do you think there is a possibility that this bubble is expanding towards our solar system and do you think it could
have anything to do with the mien calendar and other predictions of doom and gloom around that time frame.
Since when we’re looking through a telescope at stares we are actually looking at events that have happened thousands of years ago. Is it plausible
that some with the ability to manipulate time and space (travel many times faster than the speed of light) could have come to earth thousands of
years ago to warn us of something heading are way? You know something like a large gamma ray bubble that is going to fry the earth. And if so do you
think this may be why various nations are building underground bunkers and why it seems everyone feels like something is going on?
Well that’s just a thought I was having today so if anyone can help me out with this I’d appreciate it.
I’ll be going back to my happy place now. www.theepochtimes.com...

What it is about is the interaction of two colliding galaxies. Our Milky way and the Andromeda galaxy. They have in all probability already collided
at least once before eons ago and are now spiralling around for another physical interaction, however the bubbling off of gamma radiation is
undoubtedly an aspect of this interaction.
My guess is that there is a stream of plasma being drawn off by gravity and interacting with dust atoms in space to create neutrons. The proper term
for these gamma rays may be X-rays since they are not being propagated by the fission of heavy atoms, but rather photon collision with energetic
Yes, gamma rays travel at the speed of light. Yes, the gamma rays will reach Earth. In fact, they have. Otherwise Fermi would not have detected
The "Bubbles" are not a ball of gamma rays, they are the source of the gamma rays which Fermi detected. The "light bulbs". We don't know yet whether
the light bulbs are getting larger but if they are the intensity of the gamma rays emitted would decrease since the density of the material which is
creating them would decrease with the expansion. In any case, the bubbles are "north and south" of the galaxy while we are in the galactic

Thanks for all the reply’s folks. I feel much better now that I know I’m not going to be consumed by an over sizes galactic purple gamma blob.
So I guess I’ll just have to wait for the next Simpsons video to get all freeked out again.
I would actually also like to know, I don't understand light speed exactly, more or less, but not exactly. I get a little confused. I know that ie
the sun's rays take x min to reach earth because of distance, and that the milky way is huge, so if it takes so many min for the sun's rays to reach
us, how do we understand when these bubbles happened taking distance etc into account? The effect of the sun's rays happen as the reach earth, so
these bubbles may have happened a mil years ago, but because we see them now we experience them now too? Thereafter the whole idea of light speed
goes completely over my head Just too daunting.
