If an alien race wants us dead, they can do so probably with the flick of a switch and from orbit-- we'd never know what hit us.

Could this event be related to what a satellite detected under the ice in Antarctica and also the time vortex there??

Its pretty interesting. Cosmic rays are known to have a mutative effect on DNA, I wonder if this is the "Change" we have all been waiting for, i hope i get superpowers so i can kick the crap out of all the corrupt P.O.S. out there.

Or it could be from cygnus, there are plenty of crop circles that hint at cygnus "flying overhead" bringing change.

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

God bless you



why is this person unable to receive stars from other users??? there has to be a clear explanation for this?

Such a bad mock up artical, I found the pictures to be stolen from the department of energy photographs taken almost 2 decades ago - completely unreliable and tacky information, author needs shootin'

bery bery interesting....

however, how long have we had this technology that enables us to measure or read or even notice these "hot spots?"

i am no expert but im willing to bet less than 100 years.

perhaps this occurs every 400 years and is nothing new....

i dunno
nice op tho, makes one think

In case you're wondering, the article is not suggesting that these cosmic rays are increasing in intensity, or changing their behavior in some fashion. The rarity of cosmic rays makes them difficult to study; these new measurements are based on new technology and new methods of detecting the rays. They've only recently been deployed, so this is essentially new scientific territory.

I didn't see anything to be worried about. The entire mystery revolves around the source of these rays. Current theories maintain that these can only be created in extremely energetic cosmic events, like a star exploding, or two stars tearing each other apart with gravity.

The thing is, these types of highly energetic events can be seen for thousands of light years away. However the cosmic rays being studied are interacting with our atmosphere in a behavior that, according to our theories, shouldn't happen unless they were extremely close. If they are coming from many light years away, they "should" be appearing in a random scattered pattern, like the haze from a flash light very far away. Powerful magnetic fields which permeate interstellar space, and our own solar system "should" have scattered them, but instead they appear highly coherent and oriented along uniform trajectories.

My 2 cents there. Just trying to add as much clarification as I can, in case people were getting alarmed by all the astro-babble =)

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.


Sorry but the 'New Scientist Magazine' is world renowned - what you have said is like saying 'The Lancet' is just fear mongering.

Thankyou for your input - though I still find it concerning especially as they find it mysterious. But I guess they are learning all the time and what they 'don't know' is more than they 'do know' when it comes to space and what appears to be a changing Physics.

This is along the lines of my thoughts too - I thought perhaps these Rays have always been there but they're just learning how to detect them but surely this would have been thought of and stated????


And it's certainly more interesting than OBL.

maybe this is a dumb question or already has been answered, but, when did this all start happening? the cosmic rays crashing into earth and all.

New Scientist is a weekly international science magazine and website covering recent developments in science and technology for a general English-speaking audience. Founded in 1956, it is published by Reed Business Information Ltd, a subsidiary of Reed Elsevier. Reed Elsevier acquired New Scientist when it took over IPC Magazines, retaining the magazine when it disposed of most of its consumer magazines in a management buyout to as what is now IPC Media.
New Scientist has maintained a website since 1996, publishing daily news. As well as covering current events and news from the scientific community, the magazine often features speculative articles, ranging from the technical to the philosophical. It is not a peer-reviewed scientific journal


We should get an influx of 'Electric Universe Theory' people on this thread soon. Problem is the micro doesn't apply to the macro, and that's where they are wrong, mass and gravity changes things when mass increases.

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.

ALS


i cant imagine a quasar 0.03 light years away from us...do you have an idea how deadly quasars are?
