They have probably been crashing into earth ever since there has been an earth. Their existence was discovered in 1912 according to this:

Wait a second, there/s a neutrino-detecting facility in Antartica? What? Now that is crazy. When the hell did this happen? and why?

Don't worry we are safe, JP Morgan and those alike love mining for gold here. If anything they'd start a war and maybe for once the little man can cash in on them.
or they would tax those aliens, for an enslavement tax. Where there is a will, there is usually someone fighting over who owns what
So before they can enslave us they will have to fight it out with the people here already trying to enslave us. & lets be honest folks those people are probably worse than the aliens, least they'd be up front about it.

Hell, most people if you payed them a bit more than they are currently making, maybe throw in some slave health care. You'd have a fair few lining up to sign up
all joking aside though, and to go back on topic. it's pretty cool to see all the stuff space hurls at this little blue planet, and we take a licking and keep on tickin. Unill the sun explodes or at least slowly starts to turning everything to ashes, but think about it cosmic rays, sun flares, radiation, and tons more of the rays, micro, gamma ect. Yet we prevail, we are some lucky mother shut your mouths.

Worldly don't mean much. Go look up Cosmic x-ray sources yourself. You will see quite clearly that they come from flare stars, pulsars, and other such things.

Could this be the very start of our sun turning into a red giant?
Can science really predict when this will happen? Will we be the "lucky" humans that get to witness this?
You never know......

as the person who wrote the thread you have linked to i would like to point out that at 0.03AU from earth any object capable of producing the TeV required would be evedent in the orbits of planets.

there is a meta feild that connects all the planets and moons in our "solar system" to the sun.
the meta feild thesis for galaxies can be found here
meta feild relitivity link HERE

basically there is an underlying feild that channels energy into an eliptical (oval connection pole to pole) that extends from the pole of the sun to the pole of the earth to the centre of the the earth to the oposite pole and then back to the sun.
these meta feilds would contain massive amounts of energy trapped in the meta state.
when the meta elipticals are "in phase" with the magnetosphere feild lines of the earth, large amounts of energy can be induced from the meta feild at the correct orintation with the magnetic feild lines.

an anology would be a particle accelerator with a magnetic connection in the polerized direction of travel
the magnetic feild line gives a path for the particles in a "path of least resistence" because the feild line is polerized and the energy contained within the meta feild in the meta state is also polerized, there is an energy exchange between the two systems.
this would mean where ever the hots spots are the magnetic feild lines would be drawing energy from the meta feild and expresing it through the feild lines towards the polar regions.

please be aware that this is unproven, unsupported thesis that is not recognised in scientific circles,
this is just my opinion of what is being discovered

meta feilds have not yet been proven to exist so this and the linked threads are PURE speculation on my part

none of this has been proven of course which is why i speculate about the meta nature of these events.

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.

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.

And just to add that Anil is the journalist who wrote the article. Call me naive if you like but I would have thought that somebody with a degree in science related discipline heavy in theory would be an ideal journalist for New Scientist.

Oh and here's an anecdote: Whilst I was at University studying Electronics, friends of mine studying Physics struggled with the electrical side of their course and thought I was mad! No doubt Anil had similar friends

One last thing. Electronics includes quantum theory........and space is full of quantum effects.......

The Hot Spots are pointing to the missing Crystal Skulls, aren't they supposed to be found before 12-2012 as the story goes.

The difficulty in these times is making sense of the unprecedented flood of scientific discoveries and information available to ordinary citizens. The confluence of new technology able to measure things previously unseen, the Internet and to some degree IMHO, the govts desire to temper fear and anger, have come together in a very exciting way.

This is by far the most intense period in history. I'm no expert in anything. Degrees in chemistry and bio simply highlight my life long fascination with science. I do believe I have a better than average ability to recognize relationships between seemingly unrelated information.

Two things come to mind regarding this information. 1. In 1998 neurological discovery of structures in the human brain able to receive and decode radio waves struck me as the most incredible in the 20th century. 2. The theory that the black hole at the center of the milky way emits radio frequency and other waves combined with the fact that our solar system is about to cross the plane of radio waves makes me wonder this.

Perhaps these gamma rays are reaching us in way never seen in the modern era?

My theory is at some point in the next 18 months we will cross an event horizon where "galactic brain waves" will reach earth leading to a spontaneous quantum leap in human evolution. These gamma rays are simply the dawn of the new age.

Dude, space haarp, come on.

But seriously, .03 light years aka 1900 AU is too close to be any known star.

Proxima Centauri is 4.2 light years away aka ~265,600 AU, ~140x further away.

I wonder if it's possible that they are cosmic or other high energy rays coming from all across the sky as expected, but they hit the earth's magnetic field and are captured and they spin around until they come down at the poles. They wouldn't all go like that. I think some of them would bounce off the Earth's field at an angle and go off into space. Others might do laps around the equator and just slow down and be part of the Earth's field, etc.

Ever see one of those charity things in a shopping mall where you drop a quarter in and you can watch it roll on it's edge, circling a upside down bottle shape surface with a hole at the bottom, and it picks up speed as it rolls until it drops into the hole at the center/bottom?

The Earth's magnetic field is shaped like that at each pole. So maybe these cosmic rays are coming from a wider area as expected, but they are riding the magnetic field in and down at the poles.

Waves are fun. Sometimes, you can think it's coming from a local source, but its really the collision of two other waves from far away.

Didn't they recently discover that right outside of our solar system, Oort and beyond, that there are huge amounts of electromagnetic activity? Is this related to the thread at all?

Well done!

S&F OP, interesting to see some odd since. Will watch this thread with interest.
