Well Carl Sagan wanted to Nuke the Moon... to see if any organic matter was tossed into space... and the boys at NASA dropped a 'bomb' on Temple 1 and got a secondary explosion that was unexpected. Seems smashing into things is NASA's new 'scientific method'


Bleepin cosmic litterbugs if ya ask me... good thing Obama pulled there funding for the Moon before they do any more damage... Evne Scientific American said "Bombing the Moon" What is wrong with Hu-mans these days?

Your compass would technically always point north. What varies is where geographically the North Magnetic Pole will be.

Magnetic Pole Shift? - Satellites Showing Radiation Damage
www.rense.com...


A SMALL weak spot in the Earth's magnetic field is causing big problems for sensitive instruments on scientific spacecraft, forcing changes in how astronomers observe the heavens. The weak spot, whose center is off the coast of Brazil, is called the South Atlantic Anomaly, or S.A.A., and it has created a Bermuda triangle of space science. Under its influence, spacecraft can go barmy, losing data, having computer upsets and seeing ghostly images where none exist.


www.nytimes.com...

"The Future of the South Atlantic Anomaly And Implications for Radiation Damage in Space"
ntrs.nasa.gov...


As the geomagnetic field continues to weaken, the inner Van Allen belt gets closer to the Earth, with a commensurate enlargement of the SAA at given altitudes.[citation needed] Some scientists, including Dr. Pieter Kotze, head of the geomagnetism group at the Hermanus Magnetic Observatory in the southern Cape, believe that the anomaly is a side effect of geomagnetic reversal

Predictions estimate that by 2240 the SAA may cover approximately half of the southern hemisphere

en.wikipedia.org...


Effects

The South Atlantic Anomaly is of great significance to astronomical satellites and other spacecraft that orbit the Earth at several hundred kilometers altitude; these orbits take satellites through the anomaly periodically, exposing them to several minutes of strong radiation, caused by the trapped protons in the inner Van Allen belt, each time. The International Space Station, orbiting with an inclination of 51.6°, requires extra shielding to deal with this problem. The Hubble Space Telescope does not take observations while passing through the SAA.[7] Astronauts are also affected by this region which is said to be the cause of peculiar 'shooting stars' seen in the visual field of astronauts.[8] Passing through the South Atlantic Anomaly is thought[9] to be the reason for the early failures of the Globalstar network's satellites.

NASA has reported that modern laptops have crashed when the space shuttle flights passed though the anomaly

Kinda makes ya wonder how those Apollonots ever made it through..

Hmmm seems like thee were a LOT of pole reversals afterall




Geomagnetic polarity since the middle Jurassic. Dark areas denote periods where the polarity matches today's polarity, light areas denote periods where that polarity is reversed.

Magnetic Flip-Flops


Considering that ships, planes and Boy Scouts steer by it, Earth's magnetic field is less reliable than you'd think. Rocks in an ancient lava flow in Oregon suggest that for a brief erratic span about 16 million years ago magnetic north shifted as much as 6 degrees per day. After little more than a week, a compass needle would have pointed toward Mexico City.


www.psc.edu...

Evidence of second fast north-south pole flip found


(PhysOrg.com) -- The Earth's magnetic poles flip around every 200,000 years or so, with north becoming south and vice versa. Normally, the process takes 4-5,000 years and it ought to be impossible for the flip to be much faster, if models of the Earth's core are correct, but now for the second time evidence has been found of a flip that appears to have taken only a few years.



Research on the rocks by a team led by geologist Scott Bogue of the Occidental College in Los Angeles revealed the lava flow had an unusual magnetic pattern that suggested the magnetic field had been shifting over 10,000 times faster than normal, at six degrees a day.


www.physorg.com...

6 degrees a day


Geomagnetic flip may not be random after all
Mar 21, 2006


Now, physicists in Italy have found that the frequency of these polarity reversals is not random as previously thought but occurs in clusters, revealing some kind of "memory" of previous events



Although a full geomagnetic polarity reversal can take thousands of years to complete, it does have implications. As well as affecting the migration trajectories of birds and other animals, the disruption to the Earth's magnetic field could expose the Earth to hazardous cosmic rays.

Human Alien - but you are posting paranoia all the same.
When logical explanations are offered you get upset.

Does a rational explanation not fit your paranoia?

It is now called Homestead Air Reserve Base and it looks like it's due for some renumbering, too. The actual runway heading now is 235.1 degrees and 055.1 degrees. The magnetic declination now is 5.8 degrees West with an annual rate of change of 0.1 degrees West. So, whenever the airport commission gets the money together to do it, I expect the runway to go to 6/24. Unlike Tampa, Homestead ARB doesn't have Category II or Cat. III approaches, so not as much precision is required.

Today, if you stand at the true north pole, North on your compass will point to Yuma, Arizona. Actually, about halfway between Yuma and San Diego.

Tampa is now not the only airport to respond....just picked this story up this morning.....someing is happening and it can not be good. Read the artice below.

Although that article is from another newspaper (Birmingham, AL) it solely reports on the Tampa runway.(same story) Were you thinking that their airport was also affected or am I missing something?

Not sure if you inserted the wrong article but they're talking about the same airport, Tampa.

However, MSNBC used the word "skipping long....." when referring to the pole shift.

We are NOT being told the whole story. Don't listen to the disinfo who chime in and say 'it's no big deal....'

Do you want pretty explanations or (perhaps) the ugly truth?
You decide.

wouldn't pole shift make it difficult to navigate land with a map and a lensatic compass?

Science: Can the Earth Capsize?

Now, says Brown, the thing is about to happen again. The ice in the Antarctic is getting thicker and heavier. The earth is wobbling. Soon the great slosh will come. Most of mankind will be drowned and the rest will enjoy new climates.


OK, the article is from 1948. Funny that at that time there was suspected accumulation of ice at poles. Don't we now believe just the opposite? Just adding to stoke further conjecture. I honestly don't know what to think anymore. But since I'm IN Tampa, if I quit posting, run for the hills

I don't know but I'm pretty sure we're seeing the initial affects of the pole change on all the bird/fish deaths around the world.

They're definitely cramming the 2012 agenda down our throats! Just check out this ridiculous presentation (called the news) and pay close attention to the background music!
This is a travesty if THIS is what's called 'news'




Caveat emptor:
They want to suck their prey of confused, misguided and frighten people into all this hype so they can turn around and call us; confused, misguided and frighten loonies who are just falling prey to all the theatrics and hype.

Don't you SEE what's going on?
It's a mind game.

Bottom line is, the shift is happening. Now to what extent reminds to be seen.

Thanks. That looks like interesting reading.

It almost seems they knew more back then (even as far back as the Mayans) than they do now. Wait, who am I kidding? They absolutely knew more back then (4000AC) than science knows now only, we don't know how to interpret their warnings.....er, writings.

How's it going over in Tampa? Airplanes taking off/landing okay? Let me know how the skies are if you don't mind because I suspect some Khemtrialing this weekend.
(I want to see if I mis-spell that word if that won't trigger our resident debunker Mr WW).

you only need to have an accurate declination angle...grid north and magnetic north are different. Dec angle adjusts mag north to grid north on map

No, you just adjust for declination as you always do. Remember, "East is least and West is best."
