There was something that didn't click right when this satellite was launched. I know what it is now.

A new mission (click here) to monitor solar activity is now making its way to an orbit one million miles from Earth. The Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR) launched on a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket at 6:03 p.m. EST Wednesday from Space Launch Complex 40 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida.
DSCOVR, a partnership among the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), NASA and the U.S. Air Force, will provide NOAA space weather forecasters more reliable measurements of solar wind conditions, improving their ability to monitor potentially harmful solar activity.
NASA received funding from NOAA to refurbish the DSCOVR spacecraft and its solar wind instruments for this mission. The work was completed at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, MD, where a team developed the command and control portion of the spacecraft’s ground segment, and manages the launch and activation of the satellite....

What would it take to stop a drone war?

...The effects were bizarre (click here) and almost entirely unanticipated.  One effect was an electromagnetic pulse, but nobody knew it was going to be anywhere nearly as large it proved to be.  They had all this data and they didn’t understand very much of it, including the EMPs that had been observed and the effects produced…all kinds of electrical disturbances were seen over 1000 kilometers away in Oahu. The Air Force brought in a bunch of us…and asked us to explain it.  With the leadership of scientists from Los Alamos, we figured it out.  It was a fairly subtle piece of physics.  At that time we were worried it could be used as a precursor attack on the U.S. and suppress our retaliatory capability.  Since the effect wasn’t really understood before 1962, our military systems hadn’t protected against it up to that point....

The only way drones can be justified is if they are as fool proof as a human military. They can be stopped. Drones are the worst investment the USA military can make. When they fail due to electromagnetic pulse the war is lost. The advantage the new satellite will provide is silly. All that will do is provide a time frame to the loss of the war.

The satellite is funded by three branches of government, NOAA, NASA and the Air Force. Now, what interest does the Air Force have in the sun? 

NASA already has a lot of information about the sun. This satellite will probably measure 'the climate' of space. The reason space climate has to be measured is because the ambitions of the country is to put human beings on a mission to Mars. Such a crew would not be returning to Earth. The solar winds are dangerous to human beings. NASA would be interested in understanding the radiation, emissions of same from the sun and if there is a predictability to it. 

And NOAA is going to be responsible for Space Weather as well as Earth Weather. I hope they don't get the two confused.

As part of the Space Weather Prediction Center's (click here) rollout of our improved website, the content from Space Weather Now is being provided in a new way.


When is the spending for a computerized military going to be finished? It is the biggest waste of money this country has ever had. The F35 and now the US Air Force is worried about electromagnetic fields. Amazing. 




Best reason for peace yet.

There were three people murdered from the same family dressed in traditional clothing and this isn't obvious?

Ms. Deitle: “They do, (click here) and I think some of the states that have passed hate crime legislation are different than the federal statute. Probably the biggest difference that we have in the federal system is that our statute has a requirement that we need some type of force, some type of force or threat of force as part of the crime for the FBI to be able to investigate it. So for example, if you have an action which is forceful where somebody is trying to interfere or intimidate with the victims’ right to engage in a certain activity—like for example, trying to eat at a restaurant, trying to enter a movie theater—and that person is prohibited from doing so because of his race or religion or national origin, that could be considered a federal hate crime. So we’re a little bit more limited than a lot of the other state statutes which are similar.”

Mr. Hicks may have threatened a lot of people, maybe the entire neighborhood, but threats are not the issue here. He murdered three people that were overtly Muslim. The fact these people were Muslim IS evidence.

When Trayvon Martin was killed Mr. Zimmerman was following him as 'ONE OF THOSE, AGAIN.' One of those meant he was following a black man and the federal government states it wasn't a hate crime? Excuse me! 

Mr. Hicks stated he hated all religion. How convenient three Muslims wore their religion on their sleeve. 

This is a hate crime. Just because he didn't kill a Christian and Buddhist in equal opportunity doesn't mean these people weren't targeted. The three Muslims BECAME an object. They became an object of hate. There isn't anything cerebral about hate. 

These people were living their lives in peace. They didn't seek him out that day to rub his nose in hate, he decided when they came out of their home they were easy targets. Parking was a convenient excuse. What else is there to understand? Nothing.

I am grateful for the resolve of the father. He is a rock to the truth. He is magnificent.

All to familiar was the oppressive language of North Carolina law enforcement. As soon as the deaths occurred the law enforcement immediately came out and stated it was not hatred that caused the deaths of three wonderful young people. It is the voice of oppression that is well practiced in the USA south.  

While that oppressive voice is easily notable, what surprised me more than any police officer and/or sheriff was the US Attorney sounding off in the same oppressive tone and words.

Hicks is another Zimmerman. There are plenty throughout the country. They purchase guns and take way territorial rights from citizens to call that land their own. There is a social movement within the gun enthusiasts owners. They are their own law enforcement. "I (the male voice) am the sole protector of my family."

This is a hate crime. There needs to be truth gathering by everyone moved by this level of hate in this North Carolina community. Those gathering the information now are looking for methodology and law to suppress as much of the truth as possible.  

My deepest sympathies to the family who knew these young people so well. From what I can see of them now in the social media is incredible. We don't even know how much we miss them. It is obvious the three were nothing short of pure joy.

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. — Neighbors (click here) knew Craig Stephen Hicks. He was the angry man on Summerwalk Circle, they said — irritated about noise, irascible about parking, hostile to religion. And armed.
Mr. Hicks was such a disruptive presence in the Finley Forest condominium complex that last year, residents held a meeting to talk about him.
None of them, of course, could have foreseen that he might be charged with murdering three people in a neighboring apartment on Tuesday: two sisters, Yusor Mohammad Abu-Salha and Razan Mohammad Abu-Salha, and Yusor’s husband, Deah Shaddy Barakat — all of them Muslim. But some neighbors felt threatened by his behavior....

Do something on Valentine's Day

Come to the "Traverse City Winter Comedy Arts Festival." (click here)

Forget the flowers, they wilt in a week.

Forget the candy, it only messes up the diet started on January 1st. 

Do something ! 

This is that crazy festival that brings everyone out of hibernation in Michigan. It turns the main street also known as Front Street into a carnival. Literally, even with a ferris wheel that is taller than any building can guaranteed to freeze anyone's face at the top of the wheel.

Joining the celebrity list is Sinbad and Bill Maher is headlining. It is going to be one of the best comedy arts festival yet. Oh, by the way, it is it's fifth anniversary.
