The Sun, the source of all life, could put an end to the world as we know it in May 2013. The key word is could.
If a super solar flare storm penetrates our atmosphere, it could knock out all electricity and satellite communication on Earth.
I’m going with NASA’s version. Scientists there are much rosier about solar maximums and solar flares.
If a giant solar flare fireball hits earth in May 2013, it would be devastating. It would literally paralyze the USA for months to a year. Transformers would short-circuit and burn out. Satellites would be fried to a crisp. Computers would all go down. Again the key word is if.
According to AstroPhysicist Michio Kaku, this [solar maximum] happens about every 11 years but the next one [May 2013] could be a Big One. The last big one was in 1859.
Nasa scientist David Morrison says there’s nothing to worry about. It’s not a big one. I’m rooting for his take on the matter.
In a stunning announcement, NASA Administrator Charles Bolden says Obama’sforemost mission for NASA is to find a way to reach out to theMuslim World and to help them to Feel Good about their historic contribution to science, math and engineering.[01:24 to 01:39] in video
This is NASA – the National Aeronautics and Space Administration – we are talking about, for heavens sake. One would think it would be front-page headline news for AP, Reuters, New York Times, Washington Post, USA Today etc. NO.
And forget about that – under Obama, Space has been removed from NASA’s program and the foremost mission [job 1] altered to Obama’s own vision of helping the Muslim world feel good – being covered on the mainstream televised news broadcasts of ABC, CBS, or NBC.
According to the current NASA administrator, it’s expensive to fly to space and we’re going to rely more on our international partners.
So what twisted logic is it – to not focus the space program on research and development, Earth’s collapsing thermosphere, asteroids and near-Earth objects or solar flares – than instead having Job 1, helping Muslims feel good, I ask?
And is it just me or does the NASA administrator have no eyebrows and bumps instead? If Hollywood needs a space alien for an upcoming movie, this guy would be a perfect fit for the role as an actor.
Incredibly, at 08:15 to 08:32 Charles Bolden went on to say ” We have become NASA focused. We have become NASA centric. And we do things for NASA’s interest. I don’t share that feeling … that’s not good if people think that we fly missions to support NASA and the things we do. ”
18:35 “Fear is very important.” [19:00] ” We know that there are Solar Flares and they occur randomly ” [19:17] ” We know that there’s going to be a violent solar flare at some point in the future. ” [20:44] ” We could have another Ice Age and instead of the extinction of dinosaurs, it would be the extinction of you and me… but I have no evidence. ” – Charles Bolden
