I wonder how many has ever observed the effects when an ionised particle collides with another? Whether it is in a CCD sensor, or a Cloud chamber. The
particle collides with another particle, and there is a decay sequence, that is characteristic for that specific type of particle, i.e. the collision
will always look the same for a specific type of particle. That you should all have learnt in elementary physics.
In short, when a specific type of cosmic ray (i.e. particle) hits the CCD, it will always give a characteristic pattern.
you can watch a movie about elementary particle physics here, with some cloud-chamber clips (about at the 26 minute mark)
or if that is too much, just read the wikipedia entry on the Wilson cloud chamber over here: Wilson Cloud chamber
What happens in a Cloud chamer, is exactly the same as what happens when a cosmic particle strikes a CCD.
Its not the fact that the answers dont change it is the fact that the answer was given very quickly as to what Phage says it is. Like I say I am
keeping an open mind
Not that I doubt Phages knowledge but a lot of the answers he gives do seem to tow the NASA et al party line and anything that is thought to be out
of the ordinary is explained away as pixcels, dust or solar flares there could be other alternative answers and the long and the short of it is that
unless someone was there to witness it first hand thenwho can say what it truly is.
