There was only one WISE. Are you talking about IRAS?

And I don't really understand what any of this has to do with solar storms.

Speaking of ridiculous rhetoric,can you explain how all these blackouts were caused by a geomagnetic storm that hadn't even reached earth yet?

Why is it you often position your posts in an offensive manner? Does 'ATS fame' do that to people?
But to answer your question anyway:

Nope. I sure can't.
I majored in communications not astrophysics.

Why not ask Phage. He knows just about everything

Can you possibly get that Guardian link?? I would like to read that please.

Can you imagine if the American government/MSM told us that they recommend unhooking our car batteries? We'd have 10 separate conspiracies in less than a nano-second if that hit the headlines!
We're such a cynical country


iT is a hard copy , is the trouble , so I dont think there is a 'soft' copy as such of the same article . It said the strongest were the cme s expected next year , and that the events were being assessed and planned for .

as for the car batteries , the southerners 'd probably just get on with the job . i have felt the force of one 12v right through me once . that is , the job is more dangerous to the generally unlearned than the cme itself . mind you if the tills in walmart arent working you wont need to fire up your car . a new ecu will cost you though , if and when the logistics computers are working again . in China .

in switzerland it is a requirement to own or have access to a nuclear emergency bunker . i think it wouldnt hurt to have everyone be called a farmer , be required to own land , and hold a fuel bund , water storage tanks , plus generator at each home . if nothing else get used to it . This aint 'Friends' or Sex in the City' , this is 'Life in Space' . can u imagine them being told that?

One other thing is we dont know where in other places the power is out . Mind you developing countries have probably got most of the newer grid infrastructures

Did you NOT read the article I posted twice??? They are calling it WISE. And WISE (#2, I presume) was launched in 2009. Or are you telling me that article is wrong?

Don't ignore it and not acknowledge it and then ask me why I'm segueing the two. But in case you're not keeping up with the class, I am discussing this because I feel (perhaps) another solar 'body' might be out there and is pulling and tugging on the Sun.

It's not like I am talking about building a birdhouse out of Popsicle sticks here. So not sure why you're having a difficult time tying in the two!

Some people are just born to argue I guess

You don't need to be an astrophysicist, you just need to be able to understand dates and times.

And if you don't understand something, why repeat it?

You are possibly (and in this case you are) inadvertently spreading misinformation.

Hmm, in Britain the news and weather have only mentioned since last weekend how we'll have a mini heatwave this week starting today (wednesday) so maybe this is the reason?

No. Did you not read it? If you did your reading comprehension is lacking.

They are not calling it WISE it says:

He was referring to WISE's predecessor, the Infrared Astronomical Satellite


Not WISE I, IRAS. You can read about both different missions here:
IRAS
WISE

25% is a fairly large chance.

WISE was launched in 2009.

And as stated in part of the article that you highlighted yourself, yet still seem to not understand...


WISE's predecessor, the Infrared Astronomical Satellite, which launched in 1983


The Infrared Astronomical Satellite or IRAS, as Phage pointed out is WISE's PREDECESSOR. Launched in 1983.

First off, good thing you're not the owner because you would put me and this thread in the hoax bin.

It was widely suggested that the California black out and the Chilean ones were THOUGHT TO BE caused by the Sun. I have seen NO other proof saying otherwise. I am not buying that one worker in California caused several states to lose power.
Nor do I totally buy that a country of 8 million people using a particular utility company, lost power because of over-population. Why wouldn't it occur every time a new baby was born?

A large CME could've caused it.

That's not false information or misinformation or disinformation. That is MY opinion. Get over it. I'm not that powerful.

If I make your brain hurt then, take two aspirin and get off my thread!

Maybe I am getting confused but Phage is saying: WISE did its thing. It's over. After 24 months?
So do we ALL agree, WISE (NOT IRAS) was launched in 2009????


So an article dated Feb 15th 2009 discussed the possibly of WISE (not IRAS) going out and perhaps finding Tyche (Nibiru) one day and yet on Feb 17th 2009, WISE shut down because it was scheduled to.

Am I understanding this correctly???

Hmmm...So this may be the cause, as to why we've been getting gloriously sunny weather, over here in the UK.

I mean, come on..hot clear skies in England, in the middle of Autumn?!

I, for one, welcome these solar storms.

You edit out your words once you realize you make mistakes and that is NOT fair play Phage!

You said WISE was up there for YEARS (I would quote you but you erased it).

Show me one article that said that WISE's longevity was only 24 months. Show me where NASA said they specifically designed this quarter billion dollar space craft to take 900 days worth of pictures only.

Show me!

You attack me and TRY (the operative word there "Try") to make me look like a complete moron!

There is NO way that NASA launched a 300 million dollar satellite to shut it down in 900 days. Bullcrap!

I didn't author this thread. The news is saying we might have 'mass chaos'. Take it up with them or, spend less time here.

The blackouts and WISE are certainly, in my opinion, part of the greater story.
Albeit, the 'cover-up' part anyway.

No you aren't understanding it correctly.

The article does not discuss WISE "going out and perhaps finding Tyche". It says that when the data which WISE collected was released it may show Tyche. WISE was not looking for Tyche or any other particular object. It performed a full sky survey (I really don't like repeating myself).

Please read about the WISE mission. That's why I gave you a link.

The mission will last until the coolant is depleted, approximately ten months. This is expected to be sufficient time to complete one-and-a-half surveys after a one month checkout period.

nssdc.gsfc.nasa.gov...

WISE, Tyche, and Nibiru have nothing to do with solar activity.


I did not say WISE was "up there for years". Unlike you, I am familiar with the mission. Unlike you, I don't make things up.

Phage did provide a link/source, which is more that you have done. Did you bother to READ IT??




WISE, NASA's Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer, was launched on a Delta 2 rocket from Vandenberg on 14 December 2009 at 14:09 UT. The cryogenically-cooled, 661 kg satellite carries a 0.4 m diameter telescope and four detectors to perform a sky survey in infrared wavelengths. WISE will observe in four bands, 3.4, 4.6, 12 and 22 microns. Every 11 s images of a 47 arc-minute wide field will be made on to detector arrays of over one million pixels each. The mission will last until the coolant is depleted, approximately ten months. This is expected to be sufficient time to complete one-and-a-half surveys after a one month checkout period.

There is a reason we call the MSM the media. It was Medea who ate her own children to get back at Zeus.
Life will go on, but I do believe that we will be alive to see the world as we know it changed by cosmic events.


No, we call it media because some guy in 1841 coined the term from the feminine form of the Latin word "medius", which refers to an unaspirated stop in linguistics. The witch Medea was a greek mythical figure, known primarily through Ovid's Metamorphoses, for her dragon (drakone) drawn chariot. And in the myth, Medea didn't murder her children to get back at Zeus. It was as revenge against Jason (of Golden Fleece fame) for ditching her and taking up with Glauce, the king's daughter. Medea was rough on her children. She tried to poison her step son Theseus. To get the whole Medea story, read Appollonius, Seneca and Ovid, but putting together a true hagiographic biography is tough.

Phage was the one having me believe that WISE has been up there for at least several decades (I would quote him but as usual, he edits out his words).
That's why I was getting confused.


Am I to understand that IRAS was launched in 1983 and is STILL being used and yet WISE which was launched in 2007 completed its mission in 2009?

Is THAT what you are saying?

Really? I mean really?

And Phage, STOP CHANGING YOUR POSTS. Pony up and admit you might be wrong once in a while!
