Increasing solar activity and the threat that coronal mass ejections (CME) pose to Earth has prompted NASA to convene a news briefing at its Headquarter building in Washington on Thursday afternoon.
A chilling research paper authored by Victor A. Brumberg, a top theoretical physicist specializing in relativistic celestial mechanics and astrometry at the Institute of Applied Astronomy in St. Petersburg, is warning today that our Earth is in the grip of “Solar Madness” that is causing massive social and economic upheaval around the globe and is set to unleash upon the United States “unprecedented chaos.”
In Brumberg’s latest paper he builds upon the studies of how magnetic storms affect the human body conducted by Doctor-Scientist Tamara Breus of Russia’s Institute of Space Studies and whose research showed that 70% of all micro variations, caused by geomagnetic disturbances, are accompanied by an abnormally high incidence of heart attacks (a growth of about 13%), and blood-strokes (7.5% growth).
Dr. Breus further stated about his research: “The influence of a magnetic storm was obvious. It was manifest in a change of pulse and blood pressure, vegetative disorders, reduction of heartbeat rate variability and the power of respiratory undulations, and in a more irregular heartbeat pattern. Reactions varied depending on the duration of the flights and an ability of cosmonauts to adapt themselves to the new environment.”
Brumberg in making his “strong case” for blaming geomagnetic storms for this unprecedented global upheaval states his analysis of our Suns activity this year proves it could very well be the underlying cause and notes that since 7 March of this year alone our Earth has been hit with: 35 M-class flares, 2 X-class Flares, 2 C-class LDE [Long-Duration Event] Flares each lasting 9hrs, and 1 C-class LDE Flare lasting 10hrs, each of them coinciding with major protests, riots and/or stock market collapses.
In Falmouth, Maine, photographer John Stetson turned his solar telescope toward sunspot group 1271 and found it seething. "The active region is bright and crackling, surrounded by long, twisting filaments of magnetism that seem poised to produce some powerful flares," he says. Indeed,NOAA analysts note that the sunspot has a "beta-delta-gamma" magnetic field that harbors energy for X-class explosions.
DELICATO: With two big sunspots turning toward Earth and a variety of prominences dancing around the solar limb, the sun is attracting the attention of amateur astronomers. Alan Friedman sends this report from Buffalo, New York: "The activity on the sun today was so diverse in intensity and character I was reminded of movements in a symphony. This very massive prominence (pictured below) was so very faint--almost invisible when others circling the limb were properly exposed. It's delicate tendrils inspired the name Delicato."
August 18, 2011: For the first time, a spacecraft far from Earth has turned and watched a solar storm engulf our planet. The movie, released today during a NASA press conference, has galvanized solar physicists, who say it could lead to important advances in space weather forecasting. “The movie sent chills down my spine,” says Craig DeForest of the Southwest Research Institute in Boulder, Colorado. "It shows a CME swelling into an enormous wall of plasma and then washing over the tiny blue speck of Earth where we live. I felt very small.”
August 21, 2011 – DOUBLE CORONAL HOLE: A double-barreled hole has opened up in the sun’s atmosphere and it is spewing a split-stream of solar wind toward Earth. NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory captured this composite UV image of the double coronal hole on August 20th. Sky watchers should be alert for auroras when the solar wind arrives on August 22-24. NOAA forecasters estimate a 35% to 50% chance of high-latitude geomagnetic activity.
