Partial solar eclipse of February 15, 2018

Partial solar eclipse of February 15, 2018

A partial solar eclipse will be visible in parts of Chile, Argentina and Antarctica on February 15, 2018. The greatest eclipse will take place at 20:52 UTC.  The Moon will pass in front of the Sun today, creating a solar eclipse. However, the alignment will not be…… Read more »

Rolf Witzsche: Grand Solar Minimum becomes the Ice Age

The concept of “The Grand Solar Minimum” is a deception because the next Grand Solar Minimum will be the full Ice Age, scientist and author Rolf Witzsche argues in this presentation.  The underlying support for the Sun no longer exists for a reversal back…… Read more »

Geomagnetic unrest: Stream of solar wind is blowing around Earth faster than 600 km/s, causing intermittent G1-class geomagnetic storms

Geomagnetic unrest: Stream of solar wind is blowing around Earth faster than 600 km/s, causing intermittent G1-class geomagnetic storms

A stream of solar wind is blowing around Earth faster than 600 km/s. This is causing intermittent G1-class geomagnetic storms and Arctic auroras. According to NOAA forecasters there is a 55% chance of G1-storms through Dec. 19th as Earth continues its passage through the stream of solar wind. The gaseous material is emerging from a […]

The thermonuclear research was initiated by theoretical physicists in the early 1920s based on pure speculation. Georgii Gamow, Robert Atkinson, and Fritz Houtermans proposed that the energy production in stars was derived from the collision of atomic nuclei. Gamow…… Read more »

NASA ANNOUNCEMENT: First solar system like ours that could hold ALIEN life found

NASA ANNOUNCEMENT: First solar system like ours that could hold ALIEN life found

NASA today announced it has found another solar system just like ours with EIGHT planets… some of which could potentially support ALIEN life.

Thu, Dec 14, 2017

The historic discovery was made by new scientific analysis of data obtained by the Kepler space telescope, which is scouring the galaxy for planets like Earth.

Paul Hertz, Astrophysics Division director at NASA Headquarters in Washington, said: “We have found for the first time an eigth planet in a distant planetary system in the Kepler 90 system – this ties Kepler 90 with own solar system for having the most known planets.

“Kepler 90 is the first star to host as many planets as our own.”

The new planet – Kepler 90i – is a small rocky planet, but very close to the sun which is hotter than ours, and is 2,500 light years from Earth.

It would be scorching hot and unable to hold life itself, although some planets in the system may be able to.

A team of NASA scientists who have scoured the universe looking for planets that could potentially hold alien life today made the historic announcement (more…)

Converting all windows to transparent solar would provide 25% of US electrical needs

Converting all windows to transparent solar would provide 25% of US electrical needs

8c657f45a89d3938936f5f67092157bd-730x430

If every window in the United states was converted to transparent solar cell windows with 10% solar efficiency then researchers claim it would produce 80% of the electrical needs of the USA.

Above – an example of a 5% efficient transparent solar cell

* the calculation of power provided is not 80% but 25%

* the transparent solar cells are still just laboratory demonstrations

* the cells do not have commercial grade stability or years of usability. Currently they degrade quickly

* getting to commercial deployment of any product is still some years away

* the transparent solar needs to get to a competitive price

* they need to scale up production and make factories

Verifying the window claim seems to come up with 25% of US electricity from all windows being transparent solar

There is an estimated 5 billion to 7 billion square meters of glass surface in the United States. There are 100 million houses and apartments in the USA. They have about 10-100 square meters of windows for each residence.

The US receives sunlight that at 100% efficiency would produce about 4.5 kwh per square meter per day. 10% efficiency (more…)

All planet sounds from space (in our Solar System)

All planet sounds from space (in our Solar System)

In the 1990s, NASA explored the idea that emissions from other planets could be captured and processed so we could hear them. The resulting “music” is a collection of eerie, spooky sounds. However, since sound can’t travel through empty space – that is, there’s no air there to vibrate so we can hear things – […]
