This article is from the New Scientist and sounds very scary indeed to some one who doesn't understand.

Hope the experts can chip in here and put it in plain speak for us mere mortals.

"May 6, 2011 – ANTARCTICA – Cosmic rays crashing into the Earth over the South Pole appear to be coming from particular locations, rather than being distributed uniformly across the sky. Similar cosmic ray “hotspots” have been seen in the northern skies too, yet we know of no source close enough to produce this pattern. “We don’t know where they are coming from,” says Stefan Westerhoff of the University of Wisconsin-Madison. It’s a mystery because the hotspots must be produced within about 0.03 light years of Earth. Further out, galactic magnetic fields should deflect the particles so much that the hotspots would be smeared out across the sky. But no such sources are known to exist. One of the hotspots seen by IceCube points in the direction of the Vela supernova remnant, a possible source of cosmic rays, but it’s almost 1000 light years away. Cosmic rays coming from such large distances should be constantly buffeted and deflected by galactic magnetic fields on route, and should thus have lost all directionality by the time they reach Earth. In other words, such long-distance cosmic rays should appear to come from all parts of the sky. That’s not what has been observed. –New Scientists"

I think God is coming.Repent your sins and lets all enjoy eternity!

God bless you

Nah... I'd say Panet X and Anunaki are coming to enslave us to mine more gold

Fascinating! Thank you for posting this.




Others have proposed that a local phenomenon called magnetic reconnection – in which solar magnetic field lines cross and rearrange, converting magnetic energy to kinetic energy – could be accelerating local cosmic rays to energies in the TeV range and beaming them towards Earth, creating the observed hotspots.


I know the article refers to these "hotspots" on the poles but... wonder if this has anything to do with the strange compass readings many people have posted about here at ATS and also, of course, the severe weather that seems to be focussed in the same areas.

What a quite intriguing article you have found, OP... Thanks for bringing it to our attention.

Wow.. there's so many possibilities, and all of them seem unreal hah

I wonder if this might be part of the influence on the odd and much more intense weather this year?

It makes you wonder for sure. New Zealand has more bad news too with Colony Collapse of the Bees.

I wonder why this thread hasnt got that much attention
Well it says that the cosmic rays are coming from near instead to be coming from 1000 lightyears away:


It’s a mystery because the hotspots must be produced within about 0.03 light years of Earth.


The earth is entering a superheated-interstellar-cloud as some say, can imagine this rays are coming from there. But of course I hope it is something much more fantastic, something that could end my allday routine, very soon

Hmmm how strange.

Could there be some sort of "dark" quasar hidden out in the blackness? I don't know just a guess. I also wonder if there is any connections to the time vortex that are supposedly found in the poles.

You would think, that an advanced race like the annunaki, would have mining equipment like us mere Humans.

Maybe they are not that advanced after all, either way, they can buy their gold like everybody else.

There was a post a month back about scientists having a theory that distances in space where warped by our current theories and that what we currently think the distance of 1000 light years is could in fact be coming from the next system over, due to the fact that the light we are seeing could be reflecting off gas, gravity etc. Sorry i couldn't find it, it's a thread on ATS, but this could also be an explanation that the Vela system could in fact be A lot closer to cause this.

After reading the main article I was left with the impression that these unexplained cosmic ray sources are very close to our solar system. But a check of the numbers tells a different story.

The distance light travels during 1 Julian calender year is 63,241 AU (Astronomical Unit). And an Astronomical Unit is approximately equal to the mean distance between the earth and sun (about 93 million miles). The story states that the cosmic ray source must be no further from earth than 0.03 light years, that converts to about 1900 AU.

Understanding that these sources could be as much as 1900 times further away from earth than our sun changes the perspective of the story for me. Or in terms of our most distance orbiting body, these cosmic ray sources could be almost 50 times further out than Pluto (orbital radius = 39.5 AU). Regardless, this result is yet one more indication that our scientific journey has just begun.

Best regards,

I hope we are not being 'targeted' by some type of alien weapon -

Stellar mass black hole our sun goes around. Like the Doomdragon in Kolbrin Bible could account for this.
Barium sulphate stops Gamma radiation and this is in Chemtrails. Gamma radiation comes from black holes.

It's not Nibiru YET.

3 days of darkness coming. After more interesting stuff. Hooray.

Is this bombardment making the ice melt faster or affecting global warming? I didn't notice the article mention this but may have missed it.

I totally believe this could be happening because I think I felt one on a smaller scale. But it was in February of 2009. While these sound rather large and y may be focused largely in the south pole, the article does mention northern as well. I wish there was more data about exactly where.

Solar hot spot?

This was a while ago, but I remember, while researching this article, finding some reference to unexplained, burned animal corpses, I seem to remember Australia.

Exactly why should I beleive ANIL ANANTHASWAMY given all that we know about him?



He studied electronics, electrical and computer engineering at the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras (Bachelor of Technology), and the University of Washington, Seattle (Master of Science), and worked as a software engineer in Silicon Valley before training as a journalist in the University of California Santa Cruz’s renowned science writing programme. He is currently based in California.


Anil Ananthaswamy

Sorry but he doesn's seem like a credible source on physics or astrophysics.

It's coming from flare stars and pulsars. This article is just fear mongering. There are global cosmic disturbances pointing towards the Earth, and many more that are not.

ok my guess.
some aliens have seen what humans have done.
and they shoot a beam at the pole!
is it to re freeze the pole?
or to melt it?
I would say freeze.
the aliens are helping us?
cooling earth and giving us back the ice at the pole.

Worst Pseudo-skeptic comment ever. Perhaps you should get a grounding in the education disciplines you have just criticized before making blanket statements about someone from said disciplines being a credible source on physics.
