Oh... Science... Always lagging behind the thruth


Chuck Norris was taking a sunbath

Chuck Norris didn't like the result

The Sun gets round kicked and there's the giant scar.


So, there you have it. Why the worries?. Even if tomorow there's a killer CME, Earth have Chuck.

Don’t worry my friends, Pee-wee is on course (as we speak) to investigate the anomaly.

Now astronomers have discovered huge dark strip on the surface of the Sun. It is estimated this filament is about 800,000 km in length!

Astrophysicists presume dark spots on the Sun are areas where the temperature is lower. However what we see here is not a normal sunspot and it is growing at an alarming rate.

According to researchers the region has increased to almost one million kilometers in just three days.

Hmm, I'd like to get some of those "Nothing to see here, move right along" opinions on this one...

I don't like the "growing at an alarming rate" part. At all.
edit on Fri Aug 10th 2012 by TrueAmerican because: (no reason given)


King James Bible (Cambridge Ed.) Revelation 6:12
And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;

Need I say more...this pic could be showing what is coming.."spreading at an alarming rate" Should we wear sunglasses?

I'm a bit confused about what we should be concerned with. Our tiny planet could be snuffed out at any time due to an anomalous event. However, this doesn't seem any worse than many in the past.. and they also failed to obliterate our planet.

Imo, just more fear-mongering. At an alarming rate? What's an alarming rate? Do these people even know how quickly these form? I'd guess not. Fear mongering by a site that is being further being mongered by ATS members.. nothing new here. With the added
and such for good measure. yawn.

I would like to see the official link to NASA on this.

I guess the real determining factor is that these solar eruptions have not been aimed directly at the earth. I remember some astronomers talking about this somewhere.

I really don't know but electric grids are vulnerable because of parts to replace major substation transformers from what I understand. but even if we lose the satellites we would feel inconvenienced.

Sometimes I think its a bad idea for NASA and the related institutions to release the various sun images. The actual scientists who can understand what they are looking at already have access to these images. And the normal people who have no basis of understanding what it is they are looking at draw a really wide variety of bizarre conclusions.

Tons of these, I see a circle on the sun, its a spaceship/planet/superweapon/gods eyes/lens smudge etc. I see a line! I see a square! The truth is most people are not qualified to interpret what they are looking at when it comes to observing the sun.

This is what NASA has said about the Sun filament, that I could find. Where is an official link to the NASA statement that the OP was quoting? Proof or else...you know the drill.




One Half Million Mile Filament This image from NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) shows a very long, whip-like solar filament extending over half a million miles in a long arc above the sun’s surface. Filaments are cooler clouds of solar material that are tethered above the sun’s surface by unstable magnetic forces. The image and associated video, which covers August 6-8, 2012 show the filament as a darker strand that has been in view for several days. Towards the end of the video part of the filament seems to break away, but its basic length and shape seem to have remained mostly intact.

Funniest stuff I've read all day. Spit out my chew...

You know, during the dark ages, only priests could read the bible. Because they alone could understand it ...

and behold, we now live in a glorious age, where everyone can read and understand. And the priests, are the ones who read and understand ... the least of all men.

What you suppose is preposterous ... these scientists are men, like you and I, and they have absolutely zero clue on anything. And their best guess, is in reality just as good as mine ... the key is, that people try their best to understand it.

As would I. Unfortinately I wasn't familiar with the source that was used in the OP, but take the time to surf around on that website that I quoted from. It really doesn't scream credibility, in my opinion, and has some pretty far-out theories.

Nevertheless, it's still interesting to read from time to time. My apologies, I did not intend to cite from a source that isn't very credible.

Sun Unleashes Solar Plasma
October 19, 2012
A giant solar prominence erupted from the sun at 4:15am (EDT) Friday morning and was captured in stunning detail by NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory. The huge wave of super-charged solar plasma was many times larger than Earth and took only 10 hours before it was swept away, according to NASA media specialist Steele Hill. The current 11-year solar weather cycle is expected to reach its peak in 2013. More info from Space.com.
