Give Caltech astronomer Mike Brown a telescope and there’s no telling what he might discover out there

From the May 2006 issue; published online May 27, 2006

Mike Brown grew up near NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama, where his dad and every other dad in the neighborhood worked on Saturn rockets. Occasionally, the earth would rumble as he studied at his desk in a room dominated by a poster of the solar system. The shaking signaled yet another rocket test.

Decades later, Brown and his colleagues, Chad Trujillo of Gemini Observatory and David Rabinowitz of Yale University, have shaken the world of astronomy right down to that solar system poster, finding orbital objects as far as 10 billion miles from the sun in a ring of debris called the Kuiper belt. They nicknamed those icy bodies Quaoar, Sedna, Santa, Easter Bunny, and Xena.

The most important find is Sedna, which Brown calls a fossil that could lead to the unraveling of the history of the solar system. But the one that has caused the biggest uproar among astronomers is Xena, recently confirmed by a team of German scientists as being at least 30 percent larger than Pluto.

Mike Brown collects rock spheres to represent the planetoids he’s found beyond Pluto.

Xena prompted an ongoing debate in the International Astronomical Union as to whether it should be formally recognized as the 10th planet, or whether Pluto should be demoted and the number of planets reduced to eight. Whatever the decision, ultimately every elementary school science textbook will need to be rewritten and every solar system poster revised.

If you knew me as a first- or ­second-year graduate student in astronomy at the University of California at Berkeley, you’re probably a little surprised to be reading about me now.

I didn’t quite fit back then. I lived in a sailboat in the Berkeley marina and spent most of my time backpacking. Then came a big transformational moment. And the only reason I remember it being transformational is because afterward it happened again.

 I went to the University of California’s Lick Observatory with my academic adviser, and we were using this monstrous three-meter (120 inch) telescope. It was like a cathedral, actually, and a guy at the observatory mentioned this little telescope attached to the side of the big one. He said nobody used it because it was small and you couldn’t really see much with it. I can still remember the feeling twisting in my stomach: That’s wrong.

It’s so hard to get time on a telescope. It’s just wrong to have telescopes that don’t get used. So I walked around for six months thinking there must be some way to take advantage of them all the time. It’s completely backward from how anybody else figures out a Ph.D. project. Nobody finds a telescope and then, having no research topic in mind, spends a long time wondering what to do with it.

That telescope led me to study Io, one of the moons of Jupiter, focusing on its volcanoes and on how it interacts with Jupiter’s magnetic field. For my Ph.D. thesis I used the telescope to observe Io for six months straight, watching volcanoes going off and then watching the changes.

Brown and his team collect data daily via a microwave link to Mount Palomar’s Samuel Oschin Telescope (Above and below)

But you know what that telescope really did? It made me very alert when the next transformational moment came along.

I was walking down the hall past the office next to mine—the office of a postdoc named Jane Luu—when I heard this urgent whisper: “C’mere!” Jane led me to her computer screen and showed me what she and Dave Jewitt had just discovered far beyond Pluto: the first Kuiper belt object.

This was 1992. It’s funny now to think back on it. The day before, the Kuiper belt was thought of as a repository of comets that were maybe a kilometer across. This object was a couple of hundred kilometers across. The day before that discovery, the idea that there were large objects out there simply hadn’t occurred to most people. And when it came time for me to think about what to do next, this was obviously the place to look.

My work on Io led me to Caltech, which is a fantastic place for an astronomer. But it was pretty different from what I was used to—that small telescope and a lot of access. At Caltech, you have access to really big telescopes—some of the greatest in the world—but for only a few nights a year. It makes a big difference in how you do astronomy, and to be honest, I felt uneasy. I liked the style that I’d used on Io and actually told my father I was thinking about leaving. He promptly responded that if I left Caltech I was a nut.

Just a few months later, I was using the big 200-inch Hale Telescope at Caltech’s Palomar Observatory. It was a snowy night, and we couldn’t view anything, so I headed off to the place where you can sleep. On the way, I ran into a staff member who wanted to show me the Samuel Oschin Telescope, a 48-inch instrument that had been used for 50 years to do the Palomar Observatory Sky Survey.

Astronomers all know the Palomar sky survey. It was huge. It took photographic plates everywhere across the sky, and these plates were reproduced on film and sent to every astronomy library in the world, which allowed anybody to get out a jewelers’ loupe and look at whatever part of the sky he or she wished.

They were just about done with the second-generation survey, and this staff member told me that, basically, when the telescope finished there would be nothing else for it to do, and it was just going to sit there. I thought, “Oh, no, it’s not!”

It was instantly obvious that the ­Oschin was the telescope to use to find the largest Kuiper belt objects out there. The amount of sky that had been searched for these objects was insignificant. And the way to find these objects was to get a telescope that you could have access to a lot of the time and survey the whole sky.

I spent three years doing a huge survey using the 48-inch telescope and the type of photographic plates used for the Palomar sky survey. Each plate was a 14-inch square of glass with photographic emulsion painted on the back. You’d take it up to the telescope in the dark, load it with the lights out, expose it to the sky for about an hour, take it out, and drop it into a dumbwaiter that went down to the darkroom, where someone would do the developing. After all that, you’d have one picture of the sky on a piece of glass. Then the plates needed to be scanned and digitized so that the computer could look for things that were moving, and we no longer had to look by eye.

This led to three years of very intense effort. We found absolutely nothing, but it didn’t matter. I knew that we had the chance to find something really big and significant out there.

The only reason we didn’t find anything is that photographic plates can’t pick up things as faint as what we can see today with new technology—and we got unlucky. Where we looked there was nothing, but if we had gone just five degrees south, we would’ve found Xena five years ago on those photographic plates.

The spheres in Brown’s office serve as both trophies and working models of his discoveries.  They include, left to right, Xena and its moon; Santa; and Quaoar.

In some ways, I’m glad we didn’t. It would have been exciting, but it’s been kind of fun to do the progression. It was so clear that there had to be large objects out there because people kept finding things a couple hundred kilometers across, and you can extrapolate. You never know if extrapolation is going to work, but we could extrapolate that there’d be a couple of things the size of Pluto or bigger.

We were obviously disappointed that the first three years didn’t work out. Apparently, my tenure committee was a little worried about that too. But I wasn’t. Not finding something is not a problem—it is still good science. What you need to do is go back, do very careful calibrations, and write a paper about not finding anything so that it’s useful.

At that point we had already started working towards putting in the new system that we have now, which is a CCD camera that’s very much like the small digital cameras everyone uses these days. The same objects that the photographic plates needed an hour to record could be seen in minutes by the digital camera. That’s a huge difference and enabled us to cover a lot of sky. To give you an idea of the difference, three years of work with photographic plates could be done with the CCD in the course of roughly a month. And I could see things that were one-tenth as bright.

I realized that I had to make a big decision. I could either spend my time doing the calibrations of the old survey and write about why I didn’t find anything, or I could put the old survey in the trash can and do it again with the new equipment.

“You have to write the old survey up,” I was told, and I understood that. That’s the obvious advice. I would give that same advice to almost anybody. But I knew it was the wrong advice. So I ignored it. Now you do that at your own peril.

We restarted the survey using CCDs just as the tenure process was moving ahead. By the time the committee had to make its decision, we hadn’t found anything at all—well, a few small things, but nothing big.

Luckily, this wasn’t the only thing I spent my time on. I’d done a few other things the committee was happy about. And as my division chair explained afterwards: “When it comes to tenure, everyone is looking for home runs. I had to argue that you had hit a lot of singles and doubles, which added up to one or two home runs.”

A week after I was given tenure, we found Quaoar.

Quaoar is about half the size of Pluto. Everybody was really excited and wanted to hear about it. This was June of 2002. Now when I look back, it’s “Hmmmm, Quaoar was big, but not that big compared to what came afterward.”

Sedna was completely unexpected. It’s 8 billion miles from the sun—Pluto is 3.6 billion—and in 2004 we had no idea that things in that very outer region of the solar system existed. The fact that they do is going to tell us an incredible amount about the birth of the sun and the earliest history of the solar system.

Sedna shouldn’t be there. There’s no way to put Sedna where it is. It never comes close enough to be affected by the sun, but it never goes far enough away from the sun to be affected by other stars, which is the case with comets that have been observed in the Kuiper belt. Sedna is stuck, frozen in place; there’s no way to move it. And if there’s no way to move it, basically there’s no way to put it there—unless it formed there. But it’s in a very elliptical orbit, and there’s no way to form anything in an elliptical orbit like that. It simply can’t be there. There’s no possible way—except it is. So how, then?

I’m thinking it was placed there in the earliest history of the solar system. I’m thinking it could have gotten there if there used to be stars a lot closer than they are now and those stars affected Sedna on the outer part of its orbit and then later on moved away. So I call Sedna a fossil record of the earliest solar system. Eventually, when other fossil records are found, Sedna will help tell us how the sun formed and the number of stars that were close to the sun when it formed.

Sedna is incredibly far away, and we never would have seen it if it weren’t as close as it gets on its orbit. In fact, there’s about a 200-year period when we can see it, and it has a 12,000-year orbit. So what does that mean? If we see it for 200 years out of 12,000, that means there’s only a 1 in 60 chance that we could’ve seen it, which means to me that there may be 60 of these things out there. And if there are 60 of these things, then there are probably 20 of these things just a little bigger and maybe a couple the size of Mercury or Mars. We’re trying very hard to find the whole population. Once it’s done, we’ll be able to read the entire fossil record and learn incredible things.

Even though we went on to discover Xena, which is bigger than Pluto and could be called a planet, that is not particularly profound in and of itself. We’ve known all along that there was likely to be something bigger than Pluto out there, and we finally found it. Scientifically, without question, the most important object we’ve discovered is Sedna.

Clyde Tombaugh, who found Pluto in 1930, spent a decade or more going out to the telescope at night, taking these photographic plates, developing the plates in daytime, and looking through them. I’ve never really seen any of the things I find. By “see” I mean looking through a telescope and having photons actually hitting the eye. I don’t even have to go to the telescope and do observations. The telescope takes pictures, and I see the pictures on a computer screen in my office. It’s abstract and at the same time robotic.

The computer churns through most of the data, and I look through it for about 15 minutes every day. Now it’s not like I don’t do anything—to automate it like that took years of effort. But that’s why it works and why I can actually have a wife and a life.

The very first time I saw Xena on my screen, I thought that there was something wrong. It was too big and too bright. I had to double-check where it was in the sky. Then I did a calculation of how big it was and how far away it was. Xena is the most distant object ever seen in orbit around the sun—10 billion miles away. And it turned out to be 1,800 miles in diameter, about 400 more than Pluto.

I grabbed the phone and called my wife. “I just found a planet,” I said. She was pregnant at the time, and she replied: “That’s nice, honey. Can you pick up some milk on your way home?”

Can I not talk about the Spaniards? I actually prefer to not mention them. These days I like to pretend like the whole thing never happened.

Well, OK, there’s no denying they’re part of the story. When we discovered the Kuiper belt object called Santa in December of ’04, we went crazy—this was the brightest thing we’d ever seen. We didn’t know how big it was at first, but we thought for reasonable and valid reasons that it was bigger than Pluto.

Less than three weeks later, in January of ’05, we discovered Xena, which we knew was bigger than Pluto. It couldn’t not be bigger than Pluto. And while we were studying these two in detail around Easter, we found another one, which we called Easter Bunny. It also looked like it might be bigger than Pluto, even though it wasn’t. But at the time we thought we had three objects bigger than Pluto.

We were going to announce our discovery of Santa first because rumors had escaped. That way, everybody would think that Santa was the one the rumors were about and would be off our trail.

We were preparing to talk about it at a meeting in September in Cambridge, En­gland. Then we’d announce the other two in October. There were three important reasons for this timetable. One, we wanted it to be during the school year because kids love this stuff. Two, we’d have time to prepare our scientific papers. You know, we actually like to do science on these things instead of just saying, “Oh, there’s something out there!” And three, my wife gave birth on July 7, and I wanted to enjoy a little quiet time with her and the baby.

At the end of July, we went to an International Astronomical Union conference and talked about Santa, although we didn’t say where it was, so there seemed to be no way you could find it.

But a few days later, on July 28, I got an e-mail from a guy working with us, who sent me an announcement on the discovery of an object and said, “Isn’t this the object that you were talking about?”

It was. Somebody had found Santa. People in the International Astronomical Union were suspicious because the abstracts of our talk had gone on the Web. But when they asked me if I was suspicious, I naively told them no.

A few hours later I realized to my shock that we stupidly mentioned real codes that the computer spits out as soon as we find something. Santa was K40506A, which indicates that it was discovered in 2004 on May 6. The A means that it was the first object that we had found on that date. We had used K40506A to identify the object in our abstracts, and that was dumb. We should’ve just used the name Santa.

Turns out, unbeknownst to us, that if you went to Google and typed K40506A, you’d find yourself deep down in an inadvertently public archive of where one of our telescopes had been pointing. We didn’t even know this archive existed, much less that you could actually get to it so easily from Google. Once you were there, you could figure out where we’d been looking.

The archive was not meant to be public. There was supposed to be one line of code in it to keep it private, but there was an error in that one line of code, and that made it available for the world to see.

Our Web server logs indicated that a computer at the Instituto de Astrofísica de Andalucia in Spain had visited. The same computer was used to e-mail an announcement claiming “the discovery.”

As soon as we realized what happened, we knew it would be very easy to find the other objects the same way. It was impossible to keep the other two secret.
It was Friday morning. When the sun went down that evening, anybody could point his telescope at the sky and say that he discovered the other two. So we had to announce their existence before sundown—the last Friday of July.

The space shuttle was up during that time, and they were trying to do repairs on the tiles. Every science reporter was at Johnson Space Center in Houston, but we called a press conference for four o’clock Pacific time Friday, which is the worst time to announce anything, and we had no scientific papers to back up our findings.

Our announcement was buried on page 18 of the Los Angeles Times. Nobody heard about it. The kids who love to find out about this stuff weren’t even in school.

If the International Astronomical Union declares Xena to be a real planet, I hope there will be a chance for everyone to hear about it. But if they declare it not to be a planet, that’s OK too.

The reason it doesn’t matter to me is that if you start from scratch and do a scientific definition, the right number of planets is eight. As sad as I am for poor Xena, it’s just not like the other eight. And Pluto is even smaller and less like the other eight. They’re just not real, bona fide planets in the scientific sense.

But every time you find something, people get excited. When we found Quaoar, people were asking, “Is it a planet?” and we said: “No, no, it’s not a planet. And, by the way, Pluto’s not a planet either.” Then we found Sedna. “Is it a planet, is it a planet?” “No, no, it’s not a planet. And, by the way, Pluto’s not a planet either.”  Same thing with Xena. Do we keep saying the same thing over and over? Or do we give up and realize that people just love Pluto?

Nobody wants to get rid of Pluto, and if you say that Pluto’s not a planet—that it’s just a crazy small thing out on the edge of the solar system—people look at you like you’re a big cosmic bully.

The word planet is a word that lives in people’s minds and imaginations. Pluto is a planet because for 75 years everybody’s known that Pluto is a planet, not because there’s a scientific reason.

Astronomers don’t like that because they think they own the word planet, but the word has been around for 2,000 years, and it’s never been a scientific word, and it doesn’t need to be.

The analogy I use is the word continent. There’s no scientific definition for the word continent. If you could come up with a scientific definition that encompasses the seven continents, I’d be impressed. Go ahead and try. Madagascar might be a continent because it’s on a separate geological plate. Europe? No, definitely not—why is it separate from Asia? I have no idea. Australia? Sure. Maybe we’d make New Zealand one. New Zealand’s got two plates. Anyway, you’d never hear geologists argue about this because they don’t care. In geology, it doesn’t matter whether society calls these things continents or not. They talk about what’s there: continental crusts, continental dynamics, and so forth. I think astronomers should take that cue and say, let’s be realistic—society wants labels on a small number of things we know about.

As scientists, of course, we need to know the difference between the eight things that are, let’s say, major planets versus the minor planets. That way, we’ll have good scientific names, just like geologists. And if people want to call Pluto a planet, let them call Pluto a planet.

But then you have to think about calling Xena a planet because it’s bigger. So if the International Astronomical Union wants to call Xena the 10th planet and give it a formal name, that’ll be fine by me too.

What do I do next? Well, if I’m still doing this down the road it means I’m stuck in a rut. Sometimes people can just go on forever doing something that gets increasingly less interesting. But I couldn’t, even if I wanted to, because we’ve run out of sky.

There’s a natural end to this survey. By this time next year—barring really bad weather—we’ll basically have covered the entire sky that we can see. We’d like to do the other hemisphere, too, and that’ll take another couple of years. But that’ll be it. So that’s a question I actually discuss with my students. What do we do next?
A lot of people have this five-year plan—what they want to do and where they want to be. I have no idea.

Maybe I’m just waiting for somebody to tell me about some telescope that nobody happens to be using. . . .

WHAT’S AT THE EDGE OF THE SOLAR SYSTEM?

Astronomers must grope in the dark for clues to the shape and makeup of the vast exturbs beyond Pluto

Xena, the “is/isn’t” planet discovered by astronomer Mike Brown and his team, is the farthest object orbiting the sun that anyone has managed to find—roughly 10 billion miles out, more than 7 billion miles beyond Pluto. Yet Xena is nowhere close to the edge of our solar system.

The true outer limit is at least 500 times farther out, about 5 trillion miles beyond Pluto, where the sun looks like nothing more than a bright star and temperatures hover just a few degrees above absolute zero. Astronomers believe this region, called the Oort cloud, contains a vast collection of icy debris left over from material that came together to form the sun, Earth, and the other major planets 4.6 billion years ago.

Nothing in the Oort cloud is visible directly through telescopes, but astronomers infer its existence because it occasionally spits out objects that plunge toward the sun, where they sprout long, vaporous tails and become comets. About 10 comets from the farthest reaches of the solar system show up each year. Using mathematical models of the subtle forces that knock them loose—the tug of passing stars, interstellar gas clouds, and especially the gravitational fields of the galaxy itself—Harold Levison of the Southwest Research Institute in Boulder, Colorado, has estimated how many other objects populate the Oort cloud. “The total is about a trillion. It’s a huge number, even bigger than our country’s deficits,” he says.

Most of these hidden objects are presumably irregular chunks of rock, ice, and frozen gases less than a mile across, Levison says. “But I’m sure there are also things Pluto-size, even moon-size or Mars-size out there.” All the same,  everything in the Oort cloud added together might not outweigh Earth. The most notable aspect of the region is its breathtaking emptiness. It is so vast that the average distance between objects is about as great as the span from Earth to the sun. The only dramatic action happens as passing stars stir things up every few million years or so, puffing the Oort cloud up like a bag of Jiffy Pop and stripping off its outer layer. Thus its population steadily declines over the eons.

The inner Oort cloud, which stretches from a few tens of billions of miles to a few hundreds of billions of miles from the sun, is much more stable than the edge of the region. If any objects orbit there—nobody knows—they would stay in place indefinitely. Brian Marsden of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics speculates that there could be full-fledged Earth-size planets in this zone, circling unseen in the dark. “We would not have detected them observationally or dynamically,” he says.

Today’s best telescopes can penetrate only to the nearest part of the solar system’s outer regions, known as the Kuiper belt. During the solar system’s formative years, astronomers theorize, the region around Uranus and Neptune was full of icy bits of debris. As those giant outer planets grew, their powerful gravity flung much of that debris outward. The bits that migrated farthest scattered hither and yon, forming the Oort cloud. Material that stayed closer to the sun gave rise to the Kuiper belt.

The existence of the Kuiper belt was confirmed by direct observation in the early 1990s, when astronomers began to use high-sensitivity digital cameras and motion-sensing computer software to survey large areas of the sky. David Jewitt and Jane Luu of the University of Hawaii uncovered the first Kuiper belt object—a 100-mile-wide frozen ball known as QB1—in 1992. Then the floodgates opened: Astronomers quickly found more than 1,000 similar bodies, most of them about 4 billion miles from the sun, though a few orbit four or five times farther out.  The best estimate is that the region contains 100 million objects at least a mile wide. Once again, the small fry dominate. Levison and his colleagues reckon that the combined mass of all the Kuiper belt objects is significantly less than that of the Oort cloud, perhaps a 10th or a 100th the weight of Earth.

Astronomers once pictured the Kuiper belt as a giant ring-shaped collection of bodies along a disklike plane, called the ecliptic, in which Earth and all the other major planets orbit. But wide-field surveys of the sky have yielded surprises. Most notably, Xena sits at a rakish 45-degree angle to the main planets, making a mockery of the old idea that the Kuiper belt is literally a belt. According to the latest thinking, Uranus and Neptune moved around as they formed, and smaller but still substantial bodies may have further stirred up the outer solar system in ways astronomers are still struggling to understand. For now, Brown and his fellow planet hunters have learned that they need to put old ideas aside and search in all directions for new worlds.

That ever-broadening search is about to get a huge boost from Pan-STARRS—the Panoramic Survey Telescope and Rapid Response System—a prototype of which will start up in Hawaii later this year. It uses four sets of optics and the world’s largest digital camera to watch the entire sky for anything that moves, ranging from asteroids that stray dangerously close to Earth to unseen bodies in the Kuiper belt and beyond.

Pan-STARRS is a precursor to the much grander Large Synoptic Survey Telescope slated to begin operating in either Mexico or Chile in 2012. Using a mirror 28 feet wide—five times as big as the Pan-STARRS telescopes—and a camera the size of a pickup truck, it will be able to survey the entire sky in three days. Every 30 seconds it will gather 36 gigabytes of imagery, enough to fill 50 CDs. This digital cornucopia will most likely include a wealth of data about many thousands of Kuiper belt objects orbiting up to tens of billions of miles from the sun and almost certainly will include objects that once again contradict ideas about where the edge of the solar system is. “We’ve been wrong so many times before,” Marsden says.

Meanwhile, astronomers will get close-up views of the outer solar system in July 2015, when the New Horizons spacecraft flies past Pluto and sends back detailed images of the once most-distant planet and its three moons. If all goes well, New Horizons will then continue on into the Kuiper belt. John Spencer, an astronomer at the Southwest Research Institute who is working on the New Horizons mission plan, has not even picked his targets yet; he is waiting for Pan-STARRS to give him a better road map.

What New Horizons sees may be the missing links that tie the solar system together, from here to the very edge. If Levison is right, the same scattering that created the Kuiper belt and built up the Oort cloud also bombarded the young Earth with comets, reshaping its surface and delivering the ices that helped create its oceans and atmosphere. When you take a big enough look at the solar system, Levison says, “it’s all connected.”  -Corey S. Powell

 

Brown finds amazing stories written in dots of light. The pointer in a series of sky images identifies Sedna, a 1,000-mile-wide body whose oval orbit carries it up to 90 billion miles from the sun into an unexplored zone called the inner Oort cloud.

A dark object may be lurking near our solar system, occasionally kicking comets in our direction.?

Nicknamed “Nemesis” or “The Death Star,” this undetected object could be a red or brown dwarf star, or an even darker presence several times the mass of Jupiter.

Why do scientists think something could be hidden beyond the edge of our solar system? Originally, Nemesis was suggested as a way to explain a cycle of mass extinctions on Earth.?

Gaia the Great!

Posted by Admin on July 9, 2011

by Owen Waters

You may wonder why human consciousness suddenly started to rise in frequency in the 1960’s. People started to question the old ways of corruption and conflict and many began searching for spiritual answers in the teachings of the East. The actual start date of this renaissance in human consciousness was July 8th, 1964.

On that day in 1964, the Mother Earth was imbued with an enormous amount of cosmic energy. Now, because she has billions of human beings under her care and protection, she chose to store this cosmic energy within her body and then release it gradually over an extended period of time so that we could adapt to it. For the sake of humanity, she metered out this uplifting cosmic energy in a way that enabled us to adapt to higher frequencies in a balanced fashion. She could see that we needed to be able to upgrade our consciousness in preparation for the new, positive cycles that would begin to unfold after 2012.

Gaia, the Mother Earth, is a highly advanced soul based in seventh density existence. She maintains bodies as spheres of consciousness in fifth and sixth density as well as physical bodies in fourth density and our third density realm. At our physical level, her body seems tiny in the vast blackness of space and yet, at her soul level, the picture is very different. Gone is the blackness of space. There, she is a shining jewel in the solid body of light that fills our solar system.

Long ago, when mankind needed a home in space, Gaia offered to hold back her spiritual light so that our human race could exist comfortably upon her back at our own level of consciousness.

Friday, July the 8th is the ideal day to remember the greatness and compassion of this goddess of light, and to express our deep-felt gratitude for the home that she selflessly provides us.

Make the time to go within, connect with the spiritual soul of Gaia and send her your love, light, and gratitude.

Breathe in universal life energy with each inbreath. On each outbreath, send your love, light, and gratitude as a beam of white light from your heart into the heart of the Mother Earth.

Take the time to make the connection well and you will be surprised at the quality of uplifting energy that comes back to you from the Mother Earth.

Massive dust storm descends on Phoenix area

Posted by Admin on July 8, 2011

http://in.news.yahoo.com/massive-dust-storm-descends-on-phoenix-area.html

Phoenix brushed itself off and returned to normal on Wednesday after a “historic dust storm” swept over the area, sending residents scrambling for cover, knocking out power and delaying flights.

Day turned into night as the billowy plumes of dust rolled over the mountains and clogged the skies over and around Phoenix in the late afternoon and into the evening on Tuesday, applying a good coat of dirt to the surroundings.

A wall of dust that towered over skyscrapers downtown swept across the desert from the south, and it appeared to be roughly 50 miles wide in some spots.

The storm was part of the Arizona monsoon season, which typically starts in mid-June and lasts through Sept. 30.

The National Weather Service says strong winds with gusts of more than 60 mph rapidly moved the dust cloud northwest through Phoenix and the cities of Avondale, Tempe and Scottsdale.

The storm downed trees, tossed yard furniture, and snuffed out visibility across an area of some 50 miles at its peak on Tuesday evening, although there were no reports of any fatalities.

Residents rushed inside as sand from the storm blasted the area in winds of up to 50 miles per hour. Near zero visibility forced drivers to stop on area roads until the worst of the storm passed.

Chile volcano ash grounds flights in Argentina

Posted by Admin on June 7, 2011

By MICHAEL WARREN, Associated Press 20 mins ago

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina – Stiff winds blew ash from a Chilean volcano Tuesday in a widening arc across Argentina to the capital, grounding most air travel to and from the country.

Since airborne ash can severely damage jet engines, Aerolineas Argentinas and Austral, the country’s state-owned international and domestic airlines, canceled all flights within Argentina as well as to and from other countries until further notice.

At least six international carriers also suspended flights through Wednesday between Buenos Aires and cities in the United States, Europe and South America. Other carriers were expected to follow. Flights from Chile over Argentine territory also were suspended.

The capital’s usually bustling international and domestic airports were nearly deserted Tuesday, and aviation regulators met to decide whether and for how long to close them. Geologists in Chile have said the Cordon Caulle volcano could keep erupting for several weeks.

The closest major city to the volcano is San Carlos de Bariloche, just over the border in Argentina, where thick abrasive soot was coating slopes in a string of resorts that depend on the winter ski season, opening in less than two weeks. The plume then stretched northeast before curving east, dumping ash over Argentina’s vast ranchlands before reaching the capital.

“Given that even this morning the volcano continues to be active, the reopening of the airports isn’t expected until the conditions necessary for security can be guaranteed,” Argentina’s transportation department announced.

Transportation officials were meeting with representatives of Argentina’s meteorological service, civil aviation board and airport regulator to figure out where the ash cloud will move next and what to do about it, the statement said.

Despite the complications to air travel, the ash couldn’t be seen in the streets of downtown Buenos Aires by midday Tuesday.

But Jorge Echarran, who runs the emergency council of the surrounding Buenos Aires province, said in a local radio interview that “the cloud is already in the suburbs and is reaching the capital,” hovering at an altitude of between 16,400 feet (5,000 meters) and 22,970 feet (7,000 meters).

The ash cloud was blowing well to the south and away from Chile’s capital, Santiago, but at least four international carriers there canceled flights across Argentina to Buenos Aires, Brazil, Uruguay and Europe as a precaution.

Closer to the volcano, strong rains that began Monday night increased the danger of rivers getting clogged with ash and then overflowing in flash floods. Evacuations were expanding, with more than 4,000 people already fleeing their homes.

Vulcanologist Jorge Munoz of Chile’s National Geology and Mines Service said the eruption so far is considered to be moderate, but that could change. He said the volcano will likely begin to expel lava in the coming days, along with pyroclastic material that can turn waterways into avalanches of mud and rock that have the potential to destroy downstream communities.

At Long Last, Gravity Probe B Satellite Proves Einstein Right

Posted by Admin on May 22, 2011

http://news.sciencemag.org/sciencenow/2011/05/at-long-last-gravity-probe-b.html

by Adrian Cho on 4 May 2011, 5:30 PM

Fifty years after it was conceived, a $760 million NASA spacecraft has confirmed Einstein’s theory of gravity, or general relativity, physicists announced today. Gravity Probe B achieved measurements that agreed with theoretical predictions for two effects of general relativity, which states that gravity arises when mass bends space and time. “Einstein survives!” said Francis Everitt, a physicist at Stanford University in Palo Alto, California, who reported the results at a press conference at NASA headquarters in Washington, D.C.

Other researchers, however, greeted the results with what amounted to polite applause. Gravity Probe B fell well short of the precision developers had hoped to achieve in making the key measurement. Moreover, the project got scooped 6 years ago, when two physicists made a similar measurement using data from much cheaper satellites. “I have to compliment the Gravity Probe B team for their result, because Gravity Probe B is a very difficult and very beautiful experiment,” says Ignazio Ciufolini, a physicist at the University of Salento in Lecce, Italy, who made the earlier measurement.

After decades of development, Gravity Probe B circled Earth from pole to pole for 17 months starting 20 April 2004 and used gyroscopes to measure two aspects of general relativity. One, the “geodetic effect,” arises because Earth’s mass creates a kind of dimple in spacetime that messes up the usual rules of geometry. As a result, the circumference of a circle around Earth should be slightly shorter than Euclid’s value of 2π times the circle’s radius. Gravity Probe B measured the predicted 2.8-centimeter decrement in its 40,000-kilometer orbit to 0.25% precision.

The satellite also confirmed the frame-dragging effect, in which the rotating Earth twists the surrounding spacetime. It’s as if the spinning Earth were immersed in honey, Everitt explained. “When it spins, the Earth will drag the honey with it,” he said. “In the same way, the Earth drags spacetime with it.” Gravity Probe B confirmed the frame dragging effect, which is less than 1/10 times as pronounced as the geodetic effect, to 19% precision.

Still, that’s a far cry from what researchers had hoped to achieve. To measure the two effects, Gravity Probe B tracked the motion of four gyroscopes, comparing the alignment of their axes of rotation with the direction to a reference star. On the probe’s polar orbit, the geodetic effect caused the gyroscope axes to cant slightly north-south, whereas frame dragging nudged them east-west. Spinning at 5000 revolutions per minute, those gyroscopes were engineering marvels—almost perfect quartz spheres the size of Ping-Pong balls covered with superconducting niobium to produce a magnetic field along their axes. With them, researchers aimed to measure frame dragging to 1% precision.

But electrostatic imperfections in the gyroscopes thwarted that plan. Mechanically, the spheres were the roundest objects ever manufactured, Everitt explained. Were one blown up to the size of Earth, the biggest hill on it would be 3 meters tall. However, trapped charges in the niobium made the gyroscopes far less round electrically; an Earth-sized map of a sphere’s voltage landscape would sport peaks as high as Mount Everest. Interactions between those imperfections and ones in the gyroscopes’ housing created tiny tugs, and to reach the final precisions, researchers spent 5 years figuring out how to correct for them.

Some other scientists aren’t sure how much they trust the corrections. Five years ago, Ciufolini notes, Gravity Probe B researchers were reporting uncertainties more than 10 times bigger. Correcting for such large “systematic errors” is tricky business, he says: “I don’t know the details, but it seems to me very difficult to get rid of more than 90% of the systematic error.”

The previous measurement also puts a damper on the new results. In 2004, Cifuolini and Erricos Pavlis of University of Maryland, Baltimore County, measured frame dragging by tracking the orbits of the LAGEOS and LAGEOS II satellites, simple reflectors launched in 1976 and 1992 and used primarily to monitor the motion of Earth’s surface. By very carefully monitoring which way the planes of the satellites’ orbits turned or “precessed,” they measured the effect to 10% accuracy, largely stealing the thunder of the Gravity Probe B team in some researchers’ opinions. “At best they’ve just confirmed the work Ciufolini did,” says Robert O’Connell, a theorist at Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge. “So I find it a bit too much, all the hoopla” of a NASA press conference, he says.

In the end, Gravity Probe B’s full value goes beyond the results of the experiment, Everitt told Science. “Why was it worth it?” he says. “Just the element of challenge in it, the element of invention in it. There was this constant challenge of inventing new technologies.” He notes that 100 students earned Ph.D.s working on the experiment. Others offer a less favorable assessment. “This [$760 million] was government money,” O’Connell says. “And to my mind it was misspent and poorly managed” by the government agencies involved.

Terrifying scientific discovery: Strange emissions by sun are suddenly mutating matter…

Posted by Admin on May 22, 2011

http://battleofearth.wordpress.com/2011/05/02/terrifying-scientific-discovery-strange-emissions-by-sun-are-suddenly-mutating-matter%E2%80%A6/

The angry sun

For months mounting fear has driven researchers to wring their hands over the approaching solar storms. Some have predicted devastating solar tsunamis that could wipe away our advanced technology, others voiced dire warnings that violent explosions on the surface of the sun could reach out to Earth, breach our magnetic field, and expose billions to high intensity X-rays and other deadly forms of cancer-causing radiation.

Now evidence has surfaced that something potentially more dangerous is happening deep within the hidden core of our life-giving star: never-before-seen particles—or some mysterious force—is being shot out from the sun and it’s hitting Earth.

Whatever it is, the evidence suggests it’s affecting all matter.

Strange and unknown

Alarmed physicists first became aware of this threat over the past several years. Initially dismissed as an anomaly, now frantic scientists are shooting e-mails back and forth to colleagues across the world attempting to grasp exactly what is happening to the sun.

Strange and unknown

Alarmed physicists first became aware of this threat over the past several years. Initially dismissed as an anomaly, now frantic scientists are shooting e-mails back and forth to colleagues across the world attempting to grasp exactly what is happening to the sun.

Something impossible has happened. Yet the “impossible” has been proven to be true. Laboratories around the globe have confirmed that the rate of radioactive decay—once thought to be a constant and a bedrock of science—is no longer a constant. Something being emitted from the sun is interacting with matter in strange and unknown ways with the startling potential to dramatically change the nature of the very Earth itself.

Exactly what has scientists so on edge is the fact that the natural rate of decay of atomic particles has always been predictable. Indeed, using the decay rate of Carbon-14 has been a method to date archeological artifacts. The process, known as carbon dating, measures the quantity of Carbon-14 within organic objects. According to the numbers, Carbon-14 has a specific half-life of 5,730 years. Physicists have proven through exhaustive observation and experimentation over the course of a century that it takes 5,730 years for Carbon-14 atoms to decay into a stable Nitrogen-14.

The values don’t change—or at least they never have in the past. With certain evidence that radioactive decay can be significantly affected by an unknown effect from the sun, much of science is turned on its head.

Rate of decay speeding up

Worst of all, if the decay rates of matter are being mutated then all matter on Earth is being affected including the matter that makes up life.

The mutation may go so far as to change the underlying reality of the quantum universe—and by extrapolation-the nature of life, the principles of physics, perhaps even the uniform flow of time.

In fact, some evidence of time dilation has been gleaned from close observation of the decay rate. If particles interacting with the matter are not the cause—and matter is being affected by a new force of nature-then time itself may be speeding up and there’s no way to stop it.

Neutrinos the cause?

Researchers have correlated the anomalies in the decay rate to a 33-day period. That time frame matches the 33-day rotation of the solar core. Such a match strains credulity as being a mere coincidence.

Since the sun’s core is known to blast out continuous streams of particles called neutrinos, some scientists are attempting to find evidence that neutrinos are the culprits behind the mutation of matter.

There’s a problem with that hypothesis, however, as neutrinos are like ghost particles. They’re extremely difficult to detect. Normally, neutrinos pass through the Earth without any interaction at all. To a neutrino, it’s as if the Earth doesn’t exist.

Other than discovering a previously unknown property of neutrinos, or finding a new particle altogether, the possibility exists that no particle is behind the changes recorded in the radioactive decay rates. What could be causing the phenomenon is a previously unknown force.

Unknown dangers

As the sun builds towards solar maximum and a period of dangerous intensity never experienced by any living person inexorably approaches, strange, uncontrollable forces could be building deep within its fiery nuclear furnace.

It’s already been proven that the sun’s mass warps time, bends light waves and accounts for mutation of species on Earth. Now this new force may be directly interacting with matter in a way that could not only change Mankind’s understanding of physics, but change Mankind itself…and not necessarily in a beneficial way.

Yes, the e-mails will continue to fly and the hands will continue to wring. But in the end, we are all just observers.

Whether the phenomenon has no real impact on humanity, or the worst impact imaginable, nothing can be done to stop it. Once again, the titanic forces of nature rear up to overwhelm our technology—and we find ourselves like the playthings of gods.

Utterly helpless.

As_I_Please writes“Scientists at the US National Institute of Standards and Technology and Purdue University haveruled out neutrino flux as a cause of previously observed fluctuations in nuclear decay rates. From the article: ‘Researchers … tested this by comparing radioactive gold-198 in two shapes, spheres and thin foils, with the same mass and activity. Gold-198 releases neutrinos as it decays. The team reasoned that if neutrinos are affecting the decay rate, the atoms in the spheres should decay more slowly than the atoms in the foil because the neutrinos emitted by the atoms in the spheres would have a greater chance of interacting with their neighboring atoms. The maximum neutrino flux in the sample in their experiments was several times greater than the flux of neutrinos from the sun. The researchers followed the gamma-ray emission rate of each source for several weeks and found no difference between the decay rate of the spheres and the corresponding foils.’ The paper can be found here on arXiv.

The Sun Can Lob Curveballs

Sandy Koufax has a solar equivalent. The great former Brooklyn and Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher was famous for his ferocious curveball. Now scientists have discovered that powerful bursts of magnetism emanating from sunspots near the poles of the sun can be arced back toward Earth by the solar magnetic field. The finding creates another potential headache for people who run or rely on GPS satellites, telecommunications networks, and power grids, but it also means more reliable warnings about these electromagnetic disturbances.

The sun’s coronal mass ejections (CMEs) are of more than just scientific interest. When these gigantic bursts of electrically charged, extremely hot gas particles hit satellites, they can disrupt TV and radio transmissions, GPS signals, and cell phone calls. They can also overload electric power grids on the ground and pose a radiation hazard for astronauts in orbit. One recent U.S. National Academy of Sciences study of the potential hazards from a major CME hitting Earth estimated that the damage could total more than a trillion dollars and require up to 10 years to repair. Scientists have spent years attempting to track CMEs and provide enough warning to allow precautions, such as placing satellites in temporary safe modes.

So an international team analyzing data from NASA’s twin STEREO spacecrafts, which provide three-dimensional observations of solar activity, made an important discovery when they noticed something that had been predicted but never observed: CMEs launched into space from the sun’s high latitudes following trajectories that brought them back toward the solar system’s equatorial plane—where Earth resides. “We were really surprised and thought something might be wrong with our algorithms,” says solar physicist Peter Gallagher of Trinity College Dublin.

Further analyses revealed, however, that the curving solar storm tracks were accurate. CMEs emerging from sunspots located at latitudes of 60˚ or higher, north and south, can have their tracks bent by the sun’s magnetic field and pushed out toward the planets by the 500-kilometer-per-second solar wind. Gallagher and colleagues report this week in Nature Communications that the magnetic fields of CMEs also affect their trajectories. These fields tend to rotate, and their rotation can either sharpen the curve of the trajectory or flatten it out, depending on whether the CME is traveling slower or faster than the solar wind at the moment. The result is that, just like the breaking curveballs by a Major League pitcher, the bent tracks of CMEs can vary.

Gallagher, who used to compile solar-activity warnings for NASA, says the findings mean that space-weather forecasters need to watch high-latitude ejections more carefully. The normal reaction when CMEs emerge from the polar regions has been to think “that they’re going to miss us.” The new data show that isn’t the case.

The imaging process the researchers have developed to track CMEs is “quite innovative,” says Madhulika Guhathakurta, a solar physicist with NASA’s STEREO mission in Washington, D.C. The ability to track even curving CMEs through space “is of great benefit to forecasters of space weather,” adds Guhathakurta, who was not involved in the research.

The researchers have “clearly shown that [solar] storms launched initially at high latitudes can still affect us at Earth,” says solar physicist William Thompson, a contractor for the STEREO mission at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight center in Greenbelt, Maryland. Thompson adds that although scientists have long known solar storms can change directions while close to the sun, “it was surprising to find that this can still be the case farther along [in their] journey.”

What Does Fukushima’s New “Level 7” Status Mean?

Warning You are repeating the same MISTAKE!

By KRISTA MAHR Krista Mahr Tue Apr 12, 6:40 am ET

Japanese officials announced on Tuesday morning that they were planning to raise the event level at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant from a 5 to the maximum level of 7, the highest on the international scale for nuclear incidents and the same level assigned to the 1986 disaster at Chernobyl in the Ukraine.

The decision was made after Japan‘s nuclear safety body determined that at one point after the March 11 earthquake, the plant was releasing 10,000 terabecquerels of iodine-131 for several hours; level 7 accidents are defined as releasing tens of thousands of terabecquerels. “The INES rating itself is not an indicator of a daily phenomena, but the assessment after careful consideration and calculation on the event that happened in the past,” Ken Morita of NISA told TIME on Tuesday morning. (See inside Japan’s nuclear wasteland.)

NISA has also noted, however, that the amount of radioactive material being released at Fukushima today is less than 1 terabecquerel. The agency says that, to date, Fukushima has only released about 10% of total radiation released 25 years ago in Chernobyl, or about 1.8 million terabecquerels. About 30 people, mostly workers, died in the immediate aftermath of Chernobyl, though the UN has estimated that the long-term death toll due to exposure could eventually be as high as 4000.

The International Nuclear Event Scale (INES), designed in 1989 by the IAEA and the Nuclear Energy Agency (NEA) of the OECD, ranges from 1 (anomaly) to 7 (major accident). The scale is intended to help easily communicate with the public to indicate the seriousness of a nuclear event. Chernobyl is the only other nuclear accident to have been given a 7, an accident classified as having a major radioactive release with widespread impact on the environment and public health. According to INES, “Such a release would result in the possibility of acute health effects; delayed health effects over a wide area, possibly involving more than one country; long-term environmental consequences.” (Read the IAEA’s glossary of short- to long-term health effects of radiation exposure here.) (See the world’s top 10 environmental disasters.)

Besides Chernobyl, the only event that’s come close to a 7 before was a 1957 accident at a fuel processing plant (where spent nuclear fuel is recycled into new fuel) in Russia, in which an off-site release of radiation prompted preventative evacuations. The Three Mile Island accident in the U.S. in 1978, in which a reactor core was severely damage but off-site release of radioactivity was limited, was classified as a 5. Almost all reported events at nuclear facilities are a level 3 or under, according to INES.

Tuesday’s announcement comes on the back of a minor fire spotted by workers outside Fukushima’s reactor 4 on Tuesday morning, shortly after the second of three major aftershocks to hit the beleaguered northeast in the space of 24 hours. Three people in Iwaki died in landslides triggered by the 7.1 aftershock on Monday evening. The government also expanded the exclusion zone around Fukushima on Monday to include several towns within a 30-km (19-mile) radius that had formerly been told that they could remain at home, but were recommended to stay indoors. The towns now added to the mandatory evacuation zone were found to have high levels of radiation. (See the battle to hold Fukushima’s cores.)

Meanwhile, Greenpeace has said that in a survey conducted in Fukushima last week, its team of experts found radiation levels 75 times higher than the government recommendation in 11 samples of vegetables from gardens and small farms. The environmental group also announced that it found radiation levels equivalent to an annual exposure of 5 millisieverts – the evacuation threshold for Chernobyl – in a playground in Fukushima City, population 300,000. Greenpeace is urging the government to delay the start of the school year.

Though raising Fukushima’s level to 7 may not herald any immediate worsening of events, it is sure to add to many residents’ growing concern – and feelings of helplessness – over what could happen at dozens of other nuclear reactors spread across this seismic archipelago. On Sunday, over 17,000 people protested at two separate demonstrations in Tokyo against nuclear power. It was the first time that Yohei Nakamura, 45, had ever been to a protest. “For a long time I’ve been suspicious of nuclear power, but now I realize it’s a serious problem,” he said amidst the crowds carrying placards and shouting slogans. He said anti-nuclear demonstrations were undercovered in the Japanese press because of the influence of Tokyo Power and Electric Power Company, which owns Fukushima. “TEPCO is one of the most powerful companies in Japan,” Nakamura said. “They use a tremendous amount of money for adverstising. If the mass media shows anti-nuclear power activities like demonstrations, they risk losing TEPCO as an advertiser.”

Quake kills at least 74 in Myanmar, one in Thailand

Posted by Admin on March 27, 2011

http://in.news.yahoo.com/quake-kills-least-74-myanmar-one-thailand-20110325-020032-929.html

By DPA | IANS – Fri, Mar 25, 2011 2:30 PM IST

Yangon, March 25 (DPA) A magnitude-6.8 earthquake killed at least 74 people in northeast Myanmar and one in Thailand, officials said Friday.

About 74 people died and 111 were injured in Tarli and Tachilek towns, near the Myanmar-Thai border in Myanmar’s Shan state, and destroyed 244 houses, nine government offices and 14 Buddhist monasteries, government-run Myanmar television reported.

The epicentre of the earthquake was about 50 km north of Tachilek, a border town 680 km north of Bangkok.

Myanmar Minister for Social Welfare, Relief and Resettlement Maung Maung Shwe was reportedly en route to the quake-hit area for an assessment tour.

The Myanmar Red Cross and Crescent Society has dispatched 1,000 relief packages to the area, but access to the region is difficult.

‘It takes around four days to reach the affected area by car from Yangon and there are flights twice a week into Tachilek’s airport,’ aid group Medecins Sans Frontieres said in a statement.

There were no reports on casualties in Yangon and Naypyitaw, Myanmar’s former and current capitals, respectively.

The earthquake struck at 8.25 p.m. (1355 GMT) Thursday, with its epicentre in northeast Myanmar, 589 km northeast of Yangon, and 772 km north of Bangkok, according to the US Geological Survey.

In Chiang Rai, Thailand, Hong Khamping, 55, died when a concrete wall in her home collapsed on top of her. The wall was poorly constructed, Thai officials said.

‘There were no other deaths or injuries in northern Thailand,’ said Chiatha Mositrat, head of the Chiang Rai Disaster Prevention Office.

Tourists in Chiang Rai, including members of the Syrian triathlon team, evacuated their hotel rooms for several hours.

Illuminati Earthquake attack on Tokyo was deflected, England and the United States are the next target

Posted by benjamin

March 16, 2011

The earthquake and tsunami attack on Japan by the criminal corporate Washington D.C. cabal was meant to intimidate the people of the world into submission. Instead, it has provoked a threat by a very powerful group outside of the control of the White Dragon Society to “sink England, Italy and the United States into the ocean.” The White Dragon Society and its allies are appealing for calm and a negotiated solution before the planet earth is destroyed. High level negotiations aimed at accomplishing exactly this are now taking place in Tokyo and Osaka.

The earthquake attack was preceded by some very interesting numerical “coincidences.” First of all, a sum of 888.88 dollars was sent on March 8th to a key individual in New York who was supposed to cash it on March 8th, instead the cashed it on March 9th. Then on March 10th, an agent of the dark cabal set a key White Dragon Society member’s mobile alarm to ring at 11 AM Japan time on March 11th . Then at exactly 12:34 two identical e-mails were sent by two individuals to each other giving the geographical coordinates to the Ogasawara Islands. The quake that hit Japan on March 11 was initially given a magnitude of 8.8 but was then revived upwards to 8.9. The quake and tsumani attack was originally intended for Tokyo but was deflected to the North-East of the Ogasawara Islands.

A look at the tsunami map will clearly show it does not make sense as a natural disaster because Japan’s major urban locations (except Sendai) along the tsunami hit coast experienced no wave whatsoever. All this sounds very bizarre but can be proven scientifically.

We can also say that this writer has received multiple threats from Satan worshippers located within the Vatican and in Washington D.C. that “Japan will be sunk into the ocean.”

There is also evidence of insider trading related to this earthquake attack. For example the stock price of the company Higashi Nihon House, has been rising unnaturally for the past month. Japan has over 3 million vacant houses and a shrinking population so it is hard to explain the stock price rise unless somebody knew there would be a lot of reconstruction of destroyed housing. It would not surprise me if the investigative trail in this probable insider trading case led to cabal members.

In any case, negotiations are now taking place between the White Dragon and representatives of the Wall Street faction of the U.S. corporate government. The White Dragon Society is asking for a new global economic planning agency charged with ending poverty, stopping environmental destruction and releasing free energy technology in a safe and orderly manner. The Wall Street faction wants three new sovereign offshore centers for Oligarchs to conduct their business in private. The White Dragon Society is hopeful negotiations will conclude harmoniously this week.

However, the hard-core Satanic faction that still wants to kill over 4 billion people is still making threats. They fear mass arrests and are threatening to “split the planet in half” if these arrests take place. The Satanists have all been physically located and are being monitored by White Dragon forces and their allies.

The Satanists are also now trying to exaggerate fears about nuclear fall-out and nuclear melt-down in Japan. This is part of a psychological warfare follow-up to the earthquake weapon attack. Panic causing information is emanating from the U.S. embassy in Tokyo, U.S. corporations and their agents. The Satanists need a critical mass of fear and negative feeling in order to force populations to submit to their will and obey them.

The White Dragon Society urges everybody to take appropriate precautions based on correct scientific evidence but to avoid irrational panic because that is exactly what the Satanists want.

The faction making the threat to sink Italy, the U.S. and England to the bottom of the ocean has in its hands a weapon with planet destroying potential. The White Dragon Society has asked them to please avoid killing innocent people if they do go ahead and use their weapon. If we can give them precise coordinates of key Satanic infrastructure this would make it easier to avoid the deaths of innocents.

We would like to ask readers to find the precise GPS coordinates of the various HAARP facilities and other weapons of mass destruction still in the hands of the Satanic faction. This way the White Dragon Society could offer the holders of the planet destroying weapons an opportunity to protect lives.

The Dewhurst Files – Part 1
David Dewhurst is currently serving in Texas as the Lt. Governor, a position of Public Trust.   An honorable position, demanding he conducts himself accordingly.   His ambitions extend next to challenging for a seat in the Senate.  Mr. Dewhurst’s complete personal integrity, and his ability to be an honest, forthright, public official, an elected leader of the people of the State of Texas, is now the issue.

This is a man whose own brother, in conjunction with others,  is now facing serious unfolding litigation following the debacle over the breach of contract, and numerous other serious felonious criminal activities, relating to the Ed Falcone affair.   Public entities are complicit and their associations which are unfolding will have implications for many.

Here are further details received:

Donald Nevins, the brother to David Dewhurst, signed a contract with his passport copy attached, as part of a settlement deal with Ed Falcone.   This was presented to Ed Falcone as an already signed agreement.

Ed Falcone received emails in reference to this settlement contract that contained a heading, ”The Bush Settlement”.

Donald Nevins opened up a bank account for his group.  Part of the settlement funds were instructed to be transferred into this account.   He met with Ed Falcone and his bankers assuring them the funds would be wired to the agreed bank coordinates.

Donald Nevins indicated he was working on behalf of Bush Senior and the “Agency” [a reference to the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA)] via his brother, a former CIA Operative and the Lieutenant Governor of Texas, David Dewhurst.

Donald Nevins was part of a team, including five (5) other individuals, who flew around the world desperately trying to move money and alter bank account records to hide Bush Senior’s stolen moneys from Falcone and Joe Biden’s bribery money, from pursuing investigators.   We have previously reported about some of these activities.

The signed agreement by Donald Nevins instructed Ed Falcone, that upon receiving his settlement payment he would transfer $550,000,000 Dollars into the group bank account explained above.   50%, or $275,000,000 Dollars would be divided between Donald Nevins and his brother, Lieutenant Governor David Dewhurst, while the other 50% would divided among the five other individuals who flew around the world helping move the stolen funds.

This issue is now heading for serious litigation and prosecution, with damning consequences for many, including Dewhurst as he will have to answer for his very awkward participation.   All need to heed urgently at the evidence amassed.   Their Bank visits with Senior Bank Officers, which will be declared, will have severe international legal consequences.   Proof and the footprints of guilt are now about to be exhibited in a Court of Law, with developing criminal implications.  The Bush’s are telling their scared minions not to do anything and be quiet … it will all blow over … “trust us”, they say.  Well,  trust us … it will not blow over … even with all of the threats, bribes and political destruction, many are fiercely angry and are not only willing but will gladly come forward to tell all they know.  Even the Bush’s do not have the ability to stop this political storm.

The consequences are unfolding.   Perhaps, Dewhurst’s dream of Senatorial glory may be better focused on being a Senatorial candidate by upholding the Constitution and all that being a high level, elected public official means and requires.  If we could suggest, and we hate to be out of line by suggesting, but maybe, just maybe, Lt. Governor David Dewhurst needs to tell the truth about his involvement with the Bush’s and the $135,000,000.00 Dollars he was to receive for having his Brother deliver a message and documents.  Or was Lt. Governor Dewhurst’s share of the money, a mere $135,000,000 Dollars, more than meets the eye?  Dewhurst was a CIA operative after all … does he know the truth?   America, this does not compute, does it to you?  Are you voting for a person using his office for things that logically is difficult to explain?  Is he to be trusted to represent you faithfully or line his pockets at your expense?  It’s your vote!!

Either way, we say that if Dewhurst cares about his personal integrity and, that of the offices he wishes to hold, he either needs to tell the total truth which rats out the Bush’s or resign the office of Lt. Governor and cease with his aspirations of being an elected official on any level.  Lt. Governor Dewhurst, your answer will tell the people of the State of Texas and all of America about your ability to hold office and faithfully represent your constituents.  THE EYES OF OUR NATION ARE NOW UPON YOU.

What is visibly unfolding is a real life play on the American dream.   The American ethos is to work, to prosper, to succeed, but not to have it stolen or defrauded from us.  It’s about doing the right thing, standing together and helping all.   Elected Officials are paid to help us, not use public office to help themselves.

Please, send a message to the coordinates we have supplied you below.  Make your voice heard. Show we are not alone.    It could be you next.   Let us show the American spirit has not died. Your voice counts and together it gets louder.    Exposure is their worst nightmare.    Justice for one man, is justice for all.

Phone, Fax, and/or Email David Dewhurst and just state, “The eyes of our nation are now upon you.”

Greetings and Salutations;

An objective must be in mind when you prosecute a war. This banking war has been going on for many years now but the objective has never changed from the beginning. Returning this planet to a state of health, peace, and well being for all who live here, some would say, that’s impossible, true, if you had limited resources available to you. Also if your mind was limited to old paradigms. In the art of war, sun tzu, stepped beyond past behavior to find a different way forward, as he said, the best general is he who wins the war with no bloodshed. And not only just knowing the enemy but, one’s self too. The horizon increases in view ability, exponentially  so does one’s choices, the probabilities.
Somethings are beyond the scope of math, the need for freedom, comes from outside the realm of logic and deduction, some things are just ‘Known’, ‘don’t know why, I just know it’. Our grandparents survived that way. No matter how technological the toys become and are available. That ‘feely’ part just sits there scandalizing the rational mind. Massive leaps in civilizations have happened because of that feeling buried deep like a tick in a hound dog’s back. That itch that can’t be scratched. Mine started up because my dad went thru ’29…’It’s going to happen again, you watch…they didn’t do anything about these greedy bankers, so it’s going to happen again’. He almost saw the bookend on that story. He never trusted banks from those days on and we still lived well. He followed the old paradigm, work hard and save your money. When they got to the point of raiding your piggy bank, the planetary lords said that’s enough. Oh yea, they exist, they are the ones who keep these warring tribes from obliterating all life, rendering this place sterile. The species began being watched very carefully the moment they started up with the nuke thing back in the 40’s.

We are living in the time where everyone living will witness a profound change from how things operated for 100+ years, this was never just about handing out money to people. It is about shifting the wealth of the world to break up the rigidity in thought of the status quo. In ‘their’ minds they realized that no matter how much time they gave these folks to do the ‘right thing’. They insisted on heading for a cliff, proving what dolts they really were, no matter what universities they attended. They even tried to spread their inverted thinking out into the solar system and beyond, they got sent back here with their tails between their legs. They are much more scientifically advanced than is publicly known. Tech will only take you so far then it presents you with it’s own limitations.

Massive leaps forward happened this past week. Since when has a fed chairman got appointed to serve in the imf? Did you hear little tim talking about working with the chinese on a new global reserve currency? The new banking system is already up and running and if you know that, some public statements have no bearing in fact, you damn sure can’t run anywhere with money and someone not know where it is. Ghost and goblins remain as long as one holds a space open for them to live, everything ends eventually, it’s just that few recognize what’s happening in the moment that an event takes place. After last thurs events were taken care of, the auspices moon provided the thrust to surge forward in the completion of the “Plan”. There’re many arrests forthcoming  with unrest to follow, when the announcements are given. “The truth will set you free but at first it may piss you off”. From this action, the phoenix will rise from the ashes and be what it was intended to be in the first place. I hope everyone has their surf board waxed, we’re catching a world wide tsunami.  We are there stay loose for a door knock and don’t be surprised when all your years of wait are ended. This is not a repeat of the past or another version of sliced bread. The bridge has been taken out that goes back to the 20th century. Time to go Jetsons.

Email me if you need a last minute consult but from all that’s coming across my desk, this was my last statement this side of the changeover. Have fun!

Benjamin fulford ,Mar 21/11

The United States occupation forces in Japan are staging a major strategic defeat because they know the Japanese defense establishment knows it was elements of the US military that set off the March 11, (311) tsunami attack against Japan. This attack used nuclear weapons drilled into the seabed by submarines and not HAARP according to senior Pentagon Sources. In addition, four months ago they overruled Japanese authorities and placed deadly plutonium into the number 3 reactor at Fukushima, according to the governor of Fukushima prefecture. This was to provide a nuclear cover story for the seabed atomic attack, pentagon sources say. Needless to say, the ring-leaders of this attack are now in hiding and know they will be found.

The attack on Japan was orchestrated by the Bush/Clinton/Rockefeller cabal in an attempt to prevent the upcoming bankruptcy of their criminal corporate government in Washington D.C. That is why they staged the farcical show of “President” Obama of the bankrupt United States signing an “aid” bill for Japan, as if they could terrorize the rest of the world into giving them more money. That is also why they are now desperately trying to use their extortionist nation-wrecking IMF as the new vehicle for a “global currency.”

In addition, Chinese and Russian intelligence now report that Germany’s Angela Merkel is the daughter of Adolf Hitler thanks to the use of frozen sperm and the expertise of a Nazi doctor captured by the Soviets. That means she is almost certainly one of the ringleaders of the Nazi faction still hoping for a fascist world totalitarian government.

The Pentagon, for its part, is running out of oil thanks to a spreading global oil boycott targeting the criminal US corporate government. Bombing Libya will not help their case, just as attacking Japan did not help.

They are whistling in the wind because the whole world despises them and will no longer do business with them, even if this means facing down their threats of additional violence.

Their only hope is to turn over their command and control to General Colin Powell and other decent human beings still to be found within that large, bureaucratic and potentially good organization.

Meanwhile, multiple sources report that cabalist bankers, US military forces, corporate propaganda experts and other occupation forces have left Japan or have withdrawn to Okinawa. Japanese workers at US bases say troops have been withdrawn from all bases on the Japanese mainland, although this is not yet fully confirmed. However, we can confirm that agents of the criminal part of the Federal Reserve board have now left Japan. We would like to bid an especially good riddance to the rapacious bankers who have been stealing Japanese savings and using them to buy up chunks of Japan’s industry.

We can also now say that arch-traitor Heizo Takenaka, the former Finance Minister of Japan, will be facing multiple criminal charges for his crimes against the Japanese people during his time in power with the murderer Junichiro Koizumi.

One example of his criminality that we can prove in great detail in a court of law is his theft of the company Mizawa home. Takenaka illegally and unethically forced financially sound Mizawa Home into a government “financial restructuring agency,” pumped at least $200 million of Japanese taxpayer money into it and then handed it over to his brother who is now chairman of Misawa home. Our sources for this include Chiyoji Misawa, the founder of Misawa Home.

There will also be insider trading investigations into the sudden rise of the stock price of Higashi Nihon House in the month prior to the earthquake. It would only make sense for the share price of that company to rise as it did in the month prior to the tsunami if someone had insider knowledge that a bunch of housing was about to be destroyed. Japan has 3 million empty homes and a shrinking population.

Investigations will also reveal if Takenaka’s take-over of Misawa home was a sign this attack was planned long in advance.

We have also been informed by an astute reader that a Canadian company sent large shipments of Potassium Iodide to South Korea (a treatment for radioactive poisoning) one month before the nuclear “accidents,” in the Fukushima earthquake zone.

A representative of the Satanists was also told by a White Dragon Society representative that their idea that prophecy of the future was written in the stars and could not be changed was balderdash. “We will write our own stars,” he was told.

Finally, this writer went to the volcanic Island of Oshima to watch the supermoon on March 19th. The moon appeared a bright gold in color and had the exact same trajectory over the sky as did the sun on the following day. There were plenty of presumably US military observation planes in the sky over Oshima on that night but they left disappointed. Anything unusual that took place, took place when they were not watching.

This writer would like to add that even if he was given a technology capable of destroying the planet, he would never use it. Using it to save the planet is a different question but, humans already know how to do that.

Bush and the CIA’s Fraud Conspiracy Exposed. Today, the TRUTH they all thought would stay buried.

The Dewhurst Files – Part 2   March 22/11  The white Hat Report

As part of the on-going saga of scheming perpetrated against so many trusting investors like Edward Falcone by Bush Senior and his cohorts, we are now exposing new information as the prosecution evidence is being assembled and the case moves towards the first writs being served and potential arrests being made.  Mr.Falcone has the signed Bush contract with Don Nevin, passport copy attached, representing Bush in the contractual undertaking.  A bonfire of arrogance may await them when the punitive damages are assessed.   Aligned to the missing TARP Funds and all indications of failed Infrastructure Projects, a lot of questions are already arising with the Political control of DC and State funds. The criminal actions now unfolding will end a few careers.

Having stolen vast Billions previously from Mr.Falcone, Bush Sr, operating via Don Nevin, fronting for his brother David Dewhurst Lt. Governor of Texas who was instrumental in setting up the contract for Bush using Don Nevin, then tried to induce Edward Falcone to put up a further $500 million dollars into a joint Monaco Bank account. Lt. Governor David Dewhurst, operating through his brother Don Nevin assured him it would facilitate the immediate release of the long overdue funds owed to him. This was against their original Settlement agreement which they had also breached 2 years previously. An agreement negotiated and signed by ex-President George W. Bush before he left office and then recorded with the CIA for Leon Panetta to perform against.

The demand from Nevin for more money was then increased to $550M.  Part of the new $550M now being demanded, involved a fee of $275M from these funds, to be split equally between David Dewhurst and his brother Don Nevin. A Payoff demanded in writing from Nevin.  Having been a previous victim of 5 broken Bush promises, Edward Falcone wisely declined.  The last agreement was also approved for payment by President Obama and the CIA, but defaulted on yet again.  Why would parties failing to perform on so many occasions then expect a further $550M from Mr. Falcone to perform what was already contractually committed as their responsibility?  He refused, as he and his Legal Advisors saw it as another dangerous fraud scheme move by dubious operators. They then agreed to release his money without the $550M now being demanded, but again failed to pay what was long overdue.   Their intent was clear. As with all ruthless fraud operators, it was to steal another $550M from Mr. Falcone. A clear, criminal conspiracy.

Bush Sr, his associates and the CIA, had previously ordered the release of settlement money to Mr. Falcone by sending out 5 CHIPS (Clearing House Interbank Payments System) allocated in his name for trading as the beneficiary, for payment owed to him which he also never received. His CHIP funds were diverted in delivery and used by the conspirators to circumvent him, directed instead to multiple bank platform accounts of their own for trading Medium Term Notes, using his named CHIP funds for their own benefit. The attorneys and investigators hold this evidence: records, Traders’ names, amounts and trades.

They stole his lawful entitlement of profits and continued to further utilize his cash accounts and CHIPS in conjunction with HSBC, Josef Ackermann Chairman of Deutsche Bank, Bush Sr, Bush Jr, the CIA, Paulson and Greenspan, time after time. There were also further parties participating in addition for each of the individual CHIPS.

Other banks were also used for Cash deals.  Parties such as George H. W. Bush Sr., George W Bush Jr., Mitt Romney, Michael Herzog, Paul Guinette and others were cross involved in cash platforms, in conjunction with the CIA again. They blatantly stole $650M from Mr. Falcone’s account, using his cash funds criminally for their own benefit, including in conjunction again with Josef Ackermann of Deutsche Bank, a renowned banker of questionable repute who has previously been fined heavily and publicly admonished for conduct unbecoming of a Banker. Ackermann also set up the key Credit Lines at the Bank of Austria for the non-CHIP cash program element for the first year of trading for all the group of names listed above.

We exhibit for you below just some of his CHIPS utilized in their blatant deception;

CHIP 1) Wachovia Bank & Bank of America  $4.3 Billion
CHIP 2) Wachovia Bank & Bank of America  $4.3 Billion
CHIP 3) Wachovia Bank & Bank of America  $4.3 Billion
CHIP 4) Bank of New York                           $10.5 Billion
CHIP 5) Citi Bank Singapore to Tyler Texas   $12.5 Billion

Over and above the parties declared above, further benefiting parties also include Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden being bribed for $200M by Clinton to delay the Falcone settlements, Geithner, and others we will expose and name when due.

A question, at what stage should guilty Trading Banks also be held complicit and accountable for the clear and amoral Duty of Care and their Compliance Diligence failure? Multiple bank accounts around the world are being closely monitored for use of prosecutors. This is going to create serious problems for the Capital markets.

The profits accrued from Falcone funds for the CIA have been predominantly directed to Barclays Bank and Citibank, Singapore. The Bank of England’s own cross involvement will also be exposed in this sordid chain of events.  Bush Sr. and the many guilty parties have multiple bank accounts around the world which are currently being monitored, ready for Congressional, Prosecution and developing mainstream media exposure.

On every occasion, Edward Falcone was denied his rightful and lawful investment share. They got rich using his money by fraud, theft and deception. He received nothing.

Bank Officers will attest to Congress and the Courts. Worse, so will numerous parties now cross entangled to save themselves, as we will display. Michael Herzog, an associate of both the Bush and Clintons, has already threatened on record if he is made to pay back his share of what was stolen from Edward Falcone, he will expose all his records of multiple Bush conspiracies he fronted for them over many years. When thieves fall out?

Bush commandeered United States Government planes using CIA agents to fly around the world over 10 weeks. The sole agenda of the Bush directed Agency team was to move money from bank to bank, changing their offshore bank records to attempt to hide and falsify the trading records from Falcone’s pursuing investigators. All now identified with incriminating records waiting for Prosecutors to confront and indict this CIA Agency laundering team.

Prior to the last election, Public approval rate for Congresses had slumped to only 9%. That means 91 out of every 100 Americans had lost confidence in their Congressman and considered “The Hill” not fit for purpose to execute the Constitution and the Laws of the United States.  If we allow endemic abuse of one American then we all lose. By taking this campaign up to Congress to investigate, will restore America’s faith in The Hill. We have offered Congress a Prime example of corruption, endemic abuse of privileged positions by Senior Government and CIA Agency Officers, Bankers and the failures of Regulatory agencies such as the FBI, Homeland Security and the US Federal Reserve, to uphold the law and investigate clear abuse. These agencies, who are dominated by the same people, are sadly compromised, denying justice for the Bushes, their associates and their transgressions. What we are portraying is happening live, it is happening today, it is happening in our America, and it is happening to our own people … our fellow Americans. 

Key issues for Congress and the media to consider and pursue on Public record:

Who authorized the use of these planes used by Bush to attempt to protect Biden and the Bushes from pursuing investigators? Who paid? Who knew?

Who authorized these CIA Agents, who we know and will name, to be used in such a way? This is a moral imperative being closely followed now by world leaders who all know. The Global media knows and won’t be muzzled forever.

How much money from each use of these trading CHIPS, and the cash in addition, has the CIA now made? What has been taken in personal wealth?

Please consider this is just one case alone. This is a small but easy-to-indict criminal corruption case. Betrayal of Trust by Public officials. We can and will evidence also many more. Vast amounts have been sequestered which should have been helping our people, our economy and our trusting GLOBAL Investors. Our Leaders, instead of helping our people, they have helped themselves; denying recovery and project investment aid for our nation as a direct result of their orgy of financial greed.

Texas, Lt. David Dewhurst and his brother, Don Nevin, are both now being challenged with so much about to break regarding incriminating signed contracts and letters. Mitt Romney is being challenged on his Presidency campaign trail, so his vetting problems increase for the same reason he was denied an opportunity for the Vice Presidency with John McCain. Joe Biden is being protected by Obama and the Bushes, but it won’t stop the wrath of the Global media which is building. When the dam breaks, just remember Watergate! This is so, so much bigger!  Does Congress even understand what has happened to Edward Falcone is happening on a vastly larger scale perpetrated by the same player?

The Falcone story is only one of the many stories just like it that we are tracking and waiting to present to Congress and the Court system. Our case is simple. It’s not about one man. It’s a basic case of our Law needing to encompass all particularly former and current Presidents.

George H. W. Bush has a long history of public service starting in the early 1960’s. Is it a stretch to think that 50 years in politics is too much for one person? What we see from the inside is a man, although perhaps still exhorted by many, who has spent his life learning the pertinent government systems and the methods and procedures to subvert the system for his own benefit.

It is an issue when you personally turn from moral to amoral in your dealings and the acts you associate yourself with.   It is a problem when you desire to be the wealthiest and most powerful family in the world and are willing to do anything to accomplish this.  When the oath of the President of the United States means nothing to you and you believe, because of the office you once held, you can operate illegally with impunity and without consequence…..in this case, there are consequences and it starts with a Congressional Inquiry.

”Be you ever so mighty, The Law is above you!”
