Second gravitational wave detected from ancient black hole collision


 

Following February’s historic announcement, LIGO has again spotted ripples in the fabric of spacetime, from the collision of a second set of black holes

Physicists have detected ripples in the fabric of spacetime that were set in motion by the collision of two black holes far across the universe more than a billion years ago.

The event marks only the second time that scientists have spotted gravitational waves, the tenuous stretching and squeezing of spacetime predicted by Einstein more a century ago.

The faint signal received by the twin instruments of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational Wave Observatory (LIGO) in the US revealed two black holes circling one another 27 times before finally smashing together at half the speed of light.

The cataclysmic event saw the black holes, one eight times more massive than the sun, the other 14 times more massive, merge into one about 21 times heavier than the sun. In the process, energy equivalent to the mass of the sun radiated into space as gravitational waves.

An animated gravitational waves explainer from the University of Birmingham.

“This is confirmation that there’s a real population of black holes out there waiting to be detected in the future,” said John Veitch, an astrophysicist on the LIGO team at the University of Birmingham.

In February, researchers on the instrument made the historic announcement that they had picked up gravitational waves for the first time. The twin pieces of equipment, one in Hanford, Washington state, the other in Livingston, Louisiana, recorded the ripples in September 2015 as minuscule distortions in laser beams sent down 4km-long tubes. The detectors are so sensitive they can pick up changes in length one thousandth the diameter of a proton.

Writing in the journal Physical Review Letters on Wednesday, the LIGO team describes how a second rush of gravitational waves showed up in their instrument a few months after the first, at 3.38am UK time on Boxing Day morning 2015. An automatic search detected the signals and emailed the LIGO scientists within minutes to alert them.

“Everyone was still flabbergasted by the first discovery. We were writing up papers and preparing for them to be released when we had this second one. We thought ‘phew!’, it’s definitely real!” said Veitch. Another apparent signal received in October has not yet been verified.

The latest signals arrived at the Livingston detector 1.1milliseconds before they hit the Hanford detector, allowing scientists on the team to roughly work out the position of the collision in the sky. At least one of the black holes was spinning.

Closed for upgrade work in January this year, LIGO is expected to switch back on in the autumn with improvements that will nearly double the amount of the universe it can observe.

According to Will Farr, another LIGO researcher at Birmingham, pairs of black holes slam into one another on average once every 15 minutes in the observable universe.

“For me, the first detection broke everything wide open, but there was always the possibility that we had got phenomenally lucky. With the second signal it’s clear we are starting to see a population. We are going to see many of more of these in the next run,” he said.

Corey Goode and Cobra Joint Interview Part 1 & 2


This is a joint Cobra and Corey interview by Rob Potter. This video is the original and contains many amazing photos of the secret space program. You can see the transcript and the links to a wonderful amount of knowledge on http://www.ThePromiseRevealed.com These is also info from Corey that I thought was incorrect. Corey has corrected me and the transcript is clear on that. You can also see pictures of the bush Nazi connection as well as links in the introduction which is expanded in the intro. This video is copyrighted and ripoffs will be flagged and in social media content will be removed.

In the first interview they discussed the need for uniting the alternative news community in a major push for FULL Disclosure, so I’m still a bit dismayed with Rob for disabling the embedding functions for Part One and not allowing the free flow of information. For that reason, it was not published here when the interview was released on May 13, 2016. Go HERE if you wish to listen to Part One.

“Rods from God”METEOR – Mysterious Roar And Light In The Sky Wake Mexican City 21 May 2016


Note: This “bolide meteor” appears to be military weapon called the “Rod from God”, as described at the link below by physicist Jim McCanney where he explains how to tell the difference between a real meteor and a fake meteor launched from space based weaponry. Carol Rosen also talked about the “asteroid threat” that would be followed by the alien threat, and at this point it looks like they’ve begun to launch “the program” because I’ve seen several of these RoG’s in other video’s recently. Jim claims the 2013 bolide that exploded over Russia was a RoG.

There are several “real meteors” peppered thru the compilation video from SOTT below, which show the contrast between a military bolide and a cosmic based bolide meteor. The real ones don’t have a tail that looks like a rod, the tail is short and dissipates quickly. Have a great week, blessings {~A~}

METEOR – Mysterious Roar And Light In The Sky Wake Mexican City 21 May 2016

PUEBLA, MEXICO: Residents in a Mexican city woke in fright before dawn on Saturday to bright light in the sky and then a thunderous noise, fearing a nearby volcano had suddenly erupted.

But officials said Popocatepetl volcano had not stirred and no earthquake had registered.

Instead, the phenomena witnessed by the inhabitants of Puebla de Zaragoza, a city of three million people 50 kilometers (30 miles) from Mexico City, was “most likely a meteor,” the local Astronomic Society tweeted.

The rock from space probably burned up in the atmosphere and no impact was detected, it explained.

“It was horrible, we thought it was the volcano, but it wasn’t,” said one resident, Emma Chavez.

“There was a light that shone for a couple of seconds like it was daytime and then there was tremendous thunder.”

Another resident, Alvaro Morales, said: “It was really strong. Windows were shaking. We thought it was an earthquake, but it wasn’t. There was a sound like an explosion. We were truly terrified.”

For more than ten years the H.E.S.S. observatory in Namibia, run by an international collaboration of 42 institutions in 12 countries, has been mapping the centre of our galaxy in very-high-energy gamma rays. These gamma rays are produced by cosmic rays from the innermost region of the Galaxy. A detailed analysis of the latest H.E.S.S. data, published on 16th March 2016 in Nature, reveals for the first time a source of this cosmic radiation at energies never observed before in the Milky Way: the supermassive black hole at the centre of the Galaxy, likely to accelerate cosmic rays to energies 100 times larger than those achieved at the largest terrestrial particle accelerator, the LHC at CERN.

The Earth is constantly bombarded by high energy particles (protons, electrons and atomic nuclei) of cosmic origin, particles that comprise the so-called “cosmic radiation.” These “cosmic rays” are electrically charged, and are hence strongly deflected by the interstellar magnetic fields that pervade our galaxy. Their path through the cosmos is randomised by these deflections, making it impossible to directly identify the astrophysical sources responsible for their production. Thus, for more than a century, the origin of the cosmic rays remains one of the most enduring mysteries of science.

Fortunately, cosmic rays interact with light and gas in the neighbourhood of their sources, producing gamma rays. These gamma rays travel in straight lines, undeflected by magnetic fields, and can therefore be traced back to their origin. When a very-high-energy gamma ray reaches the Earth, it interacts with a molecule in the upper atmosphere, producing a shower of secondary particles that emit a short pulse of “Cherenkov light.” By detecting these flashes of light using telescopes equipped with large mirrors, sensitive photo-detectors, and fast electronics, more than 100 sources of very-high-energy gamma rays have been identified over the past three decades. The H.E..S.S. (High Energy Stereoscopic System) observatory in Namibia represents the latest generation of such telescope arrays. It is operated by scientists from 42 institutions in 12 countries, with major contributions by MPIK Heidelberg, Germany, CEA and CNRS, France.

Today we know that cosmic rays with energies up to approximately 100 teraelectronvolts (TeV)1 are produced in our galaxy, by objects such as supernova remnants and pulsar wind nebulae. Theoretical arguments and direct measurements of cosmic rays reaching the Earth indicate, however, that the cosmic-ray factories in our galaxy should be able to provide particles up to one petaelectronvolt (PeV)2 at least. While many multi-TeV accelerators have been discovered in recent years, so far the search for the sources of the highest energy Galactic cosmic rays has, so far, been unsuccessful.

Detailed observations of the Galactic centre region, made by H.E.S.S. over the past ten years, and published today in the journal Nature, finally provide direct indications for such PeV cosmic-ray acceleration. During the first three years of observations, H.E.S.S. uncovered a very powerful point source of gamma rays in the galactic-centre region, as well as diffuse gamma-ray emission from the giant molecular clouds that surround it in a region approximately 500 light years across. These molecular clouds are bombarded by cosmic rays moving at close to the speed of light, which produce gamma rays through their interactions with the matter in the clouds. A remarkably good spatial coincidence between the observed gamma rays and the density of material in the clouds indicated the presence of one or more accelerators of cosmic rays in that region. However, the nature of the source remained a mystery.

Deeper observations obtained by H.E.S.S. between 2004 and 2013 shed new light on the processes powering the cosmic rays in this region. According to Aion Viana (MPIK, Heidelberg), “the unprecedented amount of data and progress made in analysis methodologies enables us to measure simultaneously the spatial distribution and the energy of the cosmic rays.” With these unique measurements, H.E.S.S. scientists are for the first time able to pinpoint the source of these particles: “Somewhere within the central 33 light years of the Milky Way there is an astrophysical source capable of accelerating protons to energies of about one petaelectronvolt, continuously for at least 1,000 years,” says Emmanuel Moulin (CEA, Saclay). In analogy to the “Tevatron,” the first human-built accelerator that reached energies of 1 TeV, this new class of cosmic accelerator has been dubbed a “Pevatron.” “With H.E.S.S. we are now able to trace the propagation of PeV protons in the central region of the Galaxy,” adds Stefano Gabici (CNRS, Paris).

The centre of our galaxy is home to many objects capable of producing cosmic rays of high energy, including, in particular, a supernova remnant, a pulsar wind nebula, and a compact cluster of massive stars. However, “the supermassive black hole located at the centre of the Galaxy, called Sgr A*, is the most plausible source of the PeV protons,” says Felix Aharonian (MPIK, Heidelberg and DIAS, Dublin), adding that, “several possible acceleration regions can be considered, either in the immediate vicinity of the black hole, or further away, where a fraction of the material falling into the black hole is ejected back into the environment, thereby initiating the acceleration of particles.”

The H.E.S.S. measurement of the gamma-ray emission can be used to infer the spectrum of the protons that have been accelerated by the central black hole — revealing that Sgr A* is very likely accelerating protons to PeV energies. Currently, these protons cannot account for the total flux of cosmic rays detected at the Earth. “If, however, our central black hole was more active in the past,” the scientists argue, “then it could indeed be responsible for the bulk of the Galactic cosmic rays that are observed today at the Earth.” If true, this would dramatically influence the century old debate concerning the origin of these enigmatic particles.

Incoming dwarf star system, news brief, information, clarification.


Note: Alex Collier recently gave us the same feedback on an incoming planetary body…along with many other reports and sightings of what appears to be a second sun appearing next to the sun at dusk and dawn. Not to mention all the incoming meteors and fireballs whizzing by and falling to earth over the last several years. It’s beginning to look like there’s something big in the solar system that will cause perturbations on Earth, so as we move forward into March and beyond…be spiritually and physically prepared for the expected unexpected.

NASA space data supports citizens’ observations: Meteor fireballs are increasing exponentially


© Sott.net
Another spectacular meteor fireball explodes high above Bangkok, Thailand on November 2nd, 2015

SOTT.net last looked in detail at the frequency of meteor fireballs in 2013, using the data garnered by the American Meteor Society (AMS). SOTT.net pointed out the increasing frequency of fireballs1, and asked the question: “What does 2014 have in store?

Well, the results are in, and the answer is simple: comparing 2014 to 2013, the frequency of fireballs increased by 120%. Comparing 2015 to 2014, fireballs increased by 20%. That is a significant increase, and it should be generating a lot of attention. If it is, then it’s being done very quietly behind closed doors.

Since October 2013, the web site spaceweather.com has published daily data from NASA’s All-Sky Fireball Network, which observes, and daily reports, fireball activity over the US.2

I have collated both sets of data – from NASA and the AMS – to produce the following graphs, taking into account that each dataset relies on different definitions of ‘meteor fireball’. Click on the graphs to view them at full size.

Overall increase in meteor fireballs over the US in the last decade

Because we are using two datasets, there can be some incongruity for the 2013-2014 data. Nevertheless, the pattern is congruent: from 2010 onwards, the frequency of fireballs has been increasing each year in an exponential fashion. Such a change is significant and should be generating a lot of media attention and a lot of activity in near space observation.

The most significant way to plot the data is via a 12-month rolling average, which smooths out ‘noise’ and demonstrates any significant changes that have occurred. From mid-2010, the average number of fireballs significantly increased, until late 2015 when the rolling average stabilised.

Collating the data into a 6-month rolling average reveals the asymmetric distribution across the year. Fireballs are occurring at higher numbers in the latter part of the year. This difference in distribution significantly increased after 2013. That is, one part of space is becoming dense with dust and rocks, and Earth (and other planets in the inner solar system) are moving through this area of space every year.

6-month rolling average of meteor fireballs over the US in the last decade

Looking at NASA’s data month by month, we see that the fireball frequency is most concentrated in the months August to December. However, the numbers for June and July are also increasing significantly, suggesting that the area of space from which asteroid and comet debris is reaching Earth (or, alternatively, into which the solar system is moving), is increasing in size:

NASA-observed fireballs increasing over the last three years

Where there is meteor smoke, there are asteroids

NASA has also published data for near-Earth asteroid (NEA) discoveries since 1995.3 Their data shows a consistent increase in asteroid numbers from 1998-2013, and significant increases for 2014 and 2015, which shadows the big increases in fireballs observed over those two years.

Increase in Near Earth Asteroids in last two decades

Another remarkable change is the increase, since 2000, in the outer planets’ new moons/satellites.4 Jupiter and Saturn appear to have effectively shielded the planets in the inner solar system by trapping the larger ‘rocks’ in their gravitational fields, in the process gaining new moons:

Increase in the number of satellites acquired by the outer planets of the solar system

This might be related to the decline, since 2000, in new discoveries of large NEAs (rocks greater than 1km in diameter):

© Dr. M.A. Rose

To summarize, here’s what we can deduce from these datasets:

  1. The number of fireballs being observed has slowly increased over the years 2000-2011. Thereafter, their numbers increased rapidly, and moreover, the very rapid increase came from a specific area of space. Most occurred during the period August to December. 2014 and 2015 saw major increases in fireball numbers
  2. NEA numbers have been observed since 1995. From 1998-2013 the number of new NEAs discovered has relentlessly increased, with major increases in 2014 and 2015. The pattern matches that of the recorded fireballs
  3. The number of discoveries of large NEAs peaked in 2000, then declined to 2010, and plateaued out thereafter
  4. Saturn and Jupiter began increasing their number of moons circa 2000/2001, and the numbers stabilized around 2010

It would be interesting to plot the positions of the large outer planets relative to Earth over this time period, and determine whether the decrease in large NEAs in 2000 is connected to the increase of moons around the outer planets – that is, whether the outer planets, when in the right part of space, capture the larger rocks/asteroids.

More intense meteor showers and more sporadics

We have a limited database from NASA, but the following meteor showers revealed significantly increased fireball numbers for 2015 as compared with 2014:

  • Perseids – from Comet 109P Swift-Tuttle
  • Northern Taurids – Debris from Comet Encke. The Taurids and Encke are thought to be part of a much larger comet that disintegrated over the past 20,000-30,000 years. Planetary perturbations have split the debris stream into two observable showers (Northern & Southern).

The 2013 data only covers the latter part of the year. The following meteor showers showed significant increasing fireball numbers for 2014 as compared with 2013, but showed no significant increase for 2015 vs 2014:

  • Geminids – Unlike most meteor showers, the Geminids are not associated with a comet but with Asteroid 3200 Phaethon
  • Perseids – Comet 109P Swift Tuttle
  • Orionids – Debris from Comet 1P Halley
  • Sigma Hydrids – Showed increasing Fireball numbers across each year
  • Sigma Hydrids – Faint shower. The meteors are said to have a “Perseid-type velocity.” It is assumed that the source was a long-period comet and these are the last remnants of its tail

Keep in mind, however, that the vast majority of fireballs are classed as ‘sporadics’, i.e. they are not identified with any known meteor shower. They may occur during the same time period as a named meteor shower, but travel in different directions and occur in different parts of the sky.

What’s up (in space)?

So it appears that one of a couple of things is happening:

  • The solar system is moving into an area of space where it is encountering a higher density of rocks/asteroids, along with the debris trails of some comets, e.g. Encke
  • Or something a la ‘Nemesis’5 is approaching the inner solar system and perturbing comets/asteroids from the Kuiper Belt and/or the Oort Cloud.
  • The two scenarios are not mutually exclusive: the first scenario could also trigger the second.

The ‘Nemesis’ hypothesis6,7 proposes that the Sun has a companion star – a brown or red dwarf – in a highly elliptical orbit that periodically disturbs comets/asteroids in the Oort Cloud, causing a large increase in the number of comets visiting the inner solar system, and a consequential increase in impact events on Earth.

No ‘Nemesis’ twin sun has yet been detected by NASA’s WISE (Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer) telescope – or so we’re told – but WISE has discovered several brown dwarfs in neighboring star systems.8

More recently, Napier et.al.9 published a paper highlighting the significance of Centaurs in the Oort Cloud. Centaurs are giant comets in the trans-Neptunian region, which if displaced into the main solar system, could disintegrate and lead to intermittent but prolonged bombardment of inner solar system planets, for up to 100,000 years. Their opening paragraph is worth reproducing here:

Do we live in dangerous times? The risks to civilization from impacts by asteroids and comets have been appreciated only in the past few decades. Programmes such as NASA’s Spaceguard observations seek to map near-Earth objects (NEOs) as a way to quantify the risk to Earth. But does the current count of NEOs reflect the population over time? We argue that the population is variable and that assessments of the extraterrestrial impact risk based solely on near-Earth asteroid counts underestimate its nature and magnitude for timescales of order 10,000 years, i.e. the interval of interest and concern to our civilization.

A more variable but significant threat comes from Centaurs, giant comets derived from the trans-Neptunian region that reach the inner solar system generally via short-term, dynamically unstable residence periods in the outer planetary region. The disintegration of such giant comets would produce intermittent but prolonged periods of bombardment lasting up to 100,000 years. Mass extinction/geological boundary events on Earth show such a pattern, as do levels of dust and meteoroids in the upper atmosphere. Over the past 10,000 years, Earth has been experiencing the intermittent arrival of dust, meteoroids and comet fragments from the disintegration of comet 2P/Encke, trapped within the orbit of Jupiter.

Napier et al further noted that, “All three major 20th-century impacts (Tunguska, British Guiana, Curuca River) coincided with our passage through major meteoroid streams (respectively, the Beta Taurids, Geminids and Perseids).” We currently have significant increases in fireballs among the Perseids and Northern Taurids.

I guess we shall just have to see what 2016 has in store, but so far, in early January, the pattern already appears to be… continued increase in fireballs:

Solar Storms Target Earth: Two Earth-Directed CME Events


A pair of CMEs billowed away from the sun on Dec. 16th, and at least one of them appears to be heading for Earth. Propelled in our direction by an erupting filament of magnetism, the storm cloud could produce G1-class geomagnetic storms when it arrives on Dec. 19th. http://spaceweather.com/

Storm Watch Added: The WSA-ENLIL Solar Wind Prediction model released by the NOAA Space Weather Prediction Center has been updated to include a pair of coronal mass ejections observed on Wednesday. An impact to our geomagnetic field is forecast for late Friday night (UTC) and into early Saturday morning. A minor (G1) geomagnetic storm watch has been added for the next 48 hours. Sky watchers at higher latitudes should be alert for visual aurora displays this weekend.

G1 (MINOR) – G2 (MODERATE) GEOMAGNETIC STORMS LIKELY ON 18-19 DECEMBER

NOAA: TWO POSSIBLE EARTH-DIRECTED CME EVENTS ON 16 DECEMBER
Two coronal mass ejection (CME) events took place on 16 December. The first was associated with a C6 x-ray flare at 0903 UTC (0403 ET). The second was from a coronal disruption from the southeast quadrant of the Sun. The second CME was first seen in available coronagraph imagery at 1424 UTC (0924 ET).

Both CMEs have been analyzed as assymetric full-halo events and are expected to have Earth-directed components. Analysis and modeling is currently underway by SWPC forecasters to determine the geo-effectiveness of the CME events and adjust the forecast accordingly. http://www.swpc.noaa.gov/news/two-pos…
