Oxygen on Rosettas Comet?

Ah, Rosetta, everyone’s favourite comet orbiter. The European Space Agency spacecraft that made a splash when it launched a lander onto the surface of Comet 67P is continuing to gather scientific data about its target, and today researchers announced an unexpected exciting discovery: molecular oxygen.

Rosetta’s ROSINA instrument—a mass spectrometer—detected O2 in the icy body’s coma, the cloud of gas and dust and other space stuff around Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. More exciting still, the researchers behind the find, which was published Wednesday in Nature, reckon the O2 is “primordial” oxygen, i.e. that it came from the cloud of molecules from which our Solar System was formed.

In a phone call, lead author André Bieler explained the team found a strong signal of oxygen early on in the Rosetta mission. “But we were so surprised that we initially didn’t know exactly what to do, or why it would be there, and what to do with it, so we decided to just keep monitoring for a while and see what happens.”

So why is it such an exciting find? Oxygen is the third most abundant element in the Universe, but while it’s been detected on some icy bodies in the Solar System, such as planets’ moons, it’d only ever been found in two interstellar clouds, and never in a comet. “No one was expecting it to be there,” said Bieler of the team’s finding.

The researchers observed 67P’s coma from September 2014 to March 2015 and saw a mean value of 3.8 percent molecular oxygen. What’s most important, however, is that this didn’t change as the comet continued onward and approached the Sun. Bieler explained that if the oxygen was only on the surface of the comet, they would have seen a decrease in the ratio of oxygen as the comet burned up and lost gas.

They write that “the preferred explanation of our observations is the incorporation of primordial O2 into the cometary nucleus.”

The presence of this oxygen in the comet’s nucleus suggests it was there when the comet was formed—and was therefore present in the molecular cloud that birthed the planets (as comets are basically leftover material).

“I think we have to kind of rethink our models.”

This adds to our knowledge of the early days of the Solar System—or at least questions it. “Current Solar System formation models do not predict conditions that would allow this to occur,” the authors note.

“One implication is that the accretion [the coming-together of cosmic dust to form the comet] had to be pretty gentle in order for the O2 in the ice to survive,” Bieler explained. “Otherwise I think we have to kind of rethink our models.”

Next, Bieler said they’d like to look at the southern hemisphere of 67P; these new measurements come from the northern hemisphere, as that side facing the Sun (Rosetta is powered by solar arrays). In the future, he said we should also look at other comets for comparison. The Rosetta mission is of course unique in its close targeting of a comet, and previous cometary missions haven’t had the technology capable of detecting oxygen.

The new paper is an example of one of the major scientific aims of the Rosetta mission: using the comet as something of an interstellar time capsule to explore the early days of our own Solar System.

An In depth Look at Pranayama

On my search to finding new perspectives and insight on meditation and yoga I came across a great teacher with some lessons/lectures online to be viewed. The name of the teacher is Nehemiah Davis and is ellaborates on mystic knowledge pertaining prana energy ether, auric body, astral projection and many more topics,

One method that I have tried from watching the lectures on the Mystic Knowledge channel is the simple method of curing a head ache. The term they used that put things in perspective for me was Metaphysical medical procedures… makes sense. Just like doing a procedure only with the mind .. You draw the pain down into your heart point then push it out throw your arms and finally out through your hands. I experienced pulsating at the finger tips and quick heating up of my fingers.  I did not have a head ache at the moment im dealing with a wisdom tooth .. yeah so I definitely have pain to work with and practice.. I drew the energy down into the heart energy point then pushed out through my hands. On the inhale I would pull from Tooth/Ear Pain down to heart .. Exhale .. Push from Heart to Fingers.. This worked and I can describe it as having a bottle of water and  the water in the bottle is the pain… breathing the pain out would be like poking a whole in the bottle and draining it slowly until there is no pain.   After the pain was gone i relaxed my breathing and did not perform the deep breaths with the intent of pulling down the pain .. i relaxed my breathing and i noticed a sensation as if my ear had been sealed off from the pain. Almost like there was a hole that needed to be patched and once it was patched it felt normal again.

Difference in a Star & Planet

What is the physical difference between a star and a planet?

Stars and planets are traditionally differentiated based on two properties:

(i) Whether or not they undergo nuclear reactions that burn hydrogen in their cores. Stars do this; planets don’t. In order to have high enough temperatures in the core to burn hydrogen, an object needs to have a mass of at least 75 or so times that of Jupiter. Anything more massive than that is automatically considered a star.

(ii) The way they form. Stars form when a cloud of gas, out in a nebula or other region of interstellar space, collapses under the influence of gravity. Planets, on the other hand, form when material in the disk around a pre-existing star begins to condense around rock/ice cores. You can have situations where the entire planet is almost completely rock/ice/water (such as the Earth), or situations where a large amount of gas is subsequently attracted to the rock/ice core (such as Jupiter, Saturn, etc.).

There is actually some ambiguity in the above definitions, mainly because of the existence of objects called “brown dwarfs”. Brown dwarfs are too small to burn hydrogen, so they can’t be considered stars, but most of them seem to form in the same way that stars do, often out on their own in a cloud of interstellar gas, so they can’t really be considered planets either. The question then becomes, where is the boundary between a planet and a brown dwarf? What if you have an object that is, say, thirty times the mass of Jupiter but is located near a star? Is it a planet or a brown dwarf? Astronomers don’t generally know the formation mechanism in that case, whether the object formed along with the star from condensing gas or whether it has a rock/ice core at its center like a planet.

The MasterPiece

Makalesi explains how part of understanding how vibration effects your ability to successfully integrate your ego personally with your true self. This involves understand concepts that at first glance might not have much to do with each other. This can include psychology, astrology, the manipulation of colors to alter your moods, even understanding your diet.

Desert Breath

 

In 1997, she joined with industrial designer Alexandra Stratou and architect Stella Constantinides to create a breathtaking spiral made up of alternating conical dips and protrusions in the Sahara Desert, near the Egyptian town of El Gouna just off the Red Sea. The project, known as Desert Breath, spreads over one million square feet of sand.Egyptian-Desert-Sand-Spiral-4

While the installation is still visible from the sky, there are marked signs of weathering. A body of water that once acted as the work’s center point has since evaporated. The earthen mounds have flattened over time, and cracks can be seen on the overall surface of the piece. For the artists (known collectively as D.A.ST. Art team), Desert Breath’s impending demise is the whole point.

Sirius

In Ancient Egypt, Sirius was regarded as the most important star in the sky. In fact, it was astronomically the foundation of the Egyptians’ entire religious system. It was revered as Sothis and was associated with Isis, the mother goddess of Egyptian mythology. Isis is the female aspect of the trinity formed by herself, Osiris and their son Horus. Ancient Egyptians held Sirius in such a high regard that most of their deities were associated, in some way or another, with the star. Anubis, the dog-headed god of death, had an obvious connection with the dog star and Toth-Hermes, the great teacher of humanity, was also esoterically connected with the star.Sirius-1024x703

The Egyptian calendar system was based on the heliacal rising of Sirius that occurred just before the annual flooding of the Nile during summer. The star’s celestial movement was also observed and revered by ancient Greeks, Sumerians, Babylonians and countless other civilizations. The star was therefore considered sacred and its apparition in the sky was accompanied with feasts and celebrations. The dog star heralded the coming of the hot and dry days of July and August, hence the popular term “the dog days of summer”.

Several occult researchers have claimed that the Great Pyramid of Giza was built in perfect alignment with the stars, especially Sirius. The light from these stars were said to be used in ceremonies of Egyptian Mysteries.

Star alignment with the Great Pyramid of Giza. Orion (associated with the god Osiris) is aligned with the King’s Chamber while Sirius (associated with the goddess Isis) is aligned with the Queen’s Chamber. A fascinating aspect of Sirius is the consistency of the symbolism and meanings attached to it. Several great civilizations have indeed associated Sirius with a dog-like figure and viewed the star as either the source or the destination of a mysterious force. In Chinese and Japanese astronomy, Sirius is known as the “star of the celestial wolf”. Several aboriginal tribes of North America referred to the star in canine terms: the Seri and Tohono O’odham tribes of the southwest describe the Sirius as a “dog that follows mountain sheep”, while the Blackfoot call it “Dog-face”. The Cherokee paired Sirius with Antares as a dog-star guardian of the “Path of Souls”. The Wolf (Skidi) tribe of Nebraska knew it as the “Wolf Star”, while other branches of knew it as the “Coyote Star”. Further north, the Alaskan Inuit of the Bering Strait called it “Moon Dog”.

Be Metaphysical: Am I Pushing The Limits?

I wanted to document some of what I experienced during a ‘magical ‘ meditation session last night. After a wonderful skype session with my friend Bria I decided to go into some deep thought. I watched the thoughts come and go before I really focused in on the issues that were on my mind. Screen shot 2014-03-22 at 1.14.08 PM Recently my Grandma passed so I wanted to dwell on some good memories of her and just relive moments. That went very well and brought me closer to the closure that I have been reaching for.

So after I made it pass most of my earthly concerns and pondering I wanted to do some Astral travel/ Energy work to see what “eye could see”  and feel being I was in a great relaxed state mentally and physically.  

I grabbed a few stones/crystals  specifically Shattuckite, Lapis Lazuli, Quartz Pointer and Citrine programmed them with the intention to do as stated above astral/energy work. Put them all under my pillow and laid down and began my sequence of focusing on breath rhythm and seeing the light form in the darkness of my eye lids.   I Have been reading a book called Ringmakers of Saturn, they have said there is actually humungous ships that are actually  filtering the “Rings” of Saturn. Having previous experience of seeing foreign planets via dreams/meditation methods I wanted to try to go “see” for myself.   I began my planetary meditation method and vaguely  the Rings to the left of the planet came into vision … I specifically wanted to see the ships that were filtering the rings. Screen shot 2014-03-22 at 1.13.22 PMKnowing that  thoughts are what control the astral body to a certain degree ( a bit deeper than that ) I “thought” to see the ships …. thats when a sudden rush of fear came over me.  It really came out of no where I was not scared or fearful previous to that thought. Right after this sense of fear came over me  It was a very intense shake in my body….. which jolted me out of my meditation and basically back into my physical senses.  Right after that happened I was in a whoaaa  state of mind and had a dominant thought it my mind that I was being tracked…. A few minutes after I just fell asleep. That thought stuck with me all day. Screen shot 2014-03-25 at 12.40.50 AMToday was gloomy/weird being i’m trying to figure out all this cosmic astral stuff  while doing normal life task like shopping for cashews, bananas and getting the car washed.   Im not sure if I can fully explain what happened yet but I did ask for some guidance on this one  and I was led back to a book that started it all  written by Sylvan Muldoon and Hereward Carrington. I think some of the answers I am looking for are in there.  I will not be trying to go back to Saturn anytime this month at least.  This is the second time I have been denied access to a place .. this time im not sure if it was denial but it felt like i got kicked out.  Ill continue posting my meditation experiences writing them out helps me remember and learn more. Peace and Be Metaphysical

 

Book Select: Ring Makers of Saturn

“Amazing engineering feats in the realm of Saturn, the giant gas planet. Dr. Norman Bergrun’s work Ringmakers of Saturn is one to be read and pondered. Share with scientific friends, the amazing photos taken from NASA spacecraft offer evidence that there are giant space vehicles in Saturn space performing incredible engineering work on the rings of the giant gas planet.Screen shot 2014-03-19 at 8.52.55 AM The book comes handsomely bound and is printed in Scotland by Pentland Press. This book, designed to be around for some time, belongs in your science library.”

Years of follow-on analysis of Ringmakers of Saturn has led to the conclusion that EMV’s (ElectroMagnetic Vehicle’s) role in the solar system is tremendously significant. Their ability to create powerful destructive forces has become an issue that global society must not delay to reckon with.

Ringmakers of Saturn, being an out-of-print product, has been a good investment for those who have bought new copies and sold them used at elevated prices. The highest offer for a used copy is in the neighbor- hood of $2600.00. Accordingly, a new-copy price has been established at $2995.00.
