The real reason why the NICT's real time magnetosphere simulation has been down.The only reason is MONEY.Yes Money.NICT doesn't have money to re-contract the super computer that they were using and the contract finished end of February.The site will be on air until end of March or April.
Here is the email that they send me explaining the situation:

Dear Mr. Pablo Olivares,

Support of our super computer finished in the end of February.

The simulation stopped between 9 March and 20 March because of our system trouble.

The realtime simulation will really stop in the end of March or in April.

Sorry for this.

Best regards,
Shinichi Watari

We will miss this good service.The graphics of NICT are much better than the ones of NASA here

I will fight this decision.

I'd have to agree. I liked NICT much more than anything out of NASA.

However, I do find it very convenient that it shut down right around the same time the purported "magnetosphere reversal" took place, or rather, we were belted with pressure from an opposite direction.

Frankly, I don't like the idea on getting all my information from one source. It always seems to stink a lot more that way.
