Earth’s Magnetic Field Is Weakening 10 Times Faster Now .
Changes measured by the Swarm satellite over the past 6 months shows that Earth’s magnetic field …
Earth’s magnetic field, which protects the planet from huge blasts of deadly solar radiation, has been weakening over the past six months, according to data collected by a European Space Agency (ESA) satellite array called Swarm.
The biggest weak spots in the magnetic field — which extends 370,000 miles—–
THE story goes onto say that these spots are in the Western Hemisphere. Please read this story on Yahoo. com. Thanks.
i just finished watching COSMOS: A SPACE ODYSSEY -.A SKY FULL OF GHOSTS. Very interesting program. it brought gravity, time and light together ,how they distort our perception of the universe” and related them to time travel. Very interesting.
This article I found exciting. If you enjoyed it as much as I did, please look it up- I found it on Yahoo news.
North Star Polaris Is Getting Brighter

The North Star Polaris Is Getting Brighter
This long-exposure photo (left) shows how the North Star, Polaris, stays fixed in the night sky as other …
The North Star has remained an eternal reassurance for northern travelers over the centuries. But recent and historical research reveals that the ever-constant star is actually changing.
After dimming for the last few decades, the North Star is beginning to shine brightly again. And over the last two centuries, the brightening has become rather dramatic.
“It was unexpected to find,” Scott Engle of Villanova University in Pennsylvania told SPACE.com. Engle investigated the fluctuations of the star over the course of several years, combing through historical records and even turning the gaze of the famed Hubble Space Telescope onto the star.

(In)constant as the North Star
Scientists have known since the early 20th century that the familiar star was part of a pulsating class known as Cepheid variables; its variations were suspected as early as the mid-1800s. But unlike most Cepheid variables, the pulses of Polaris are very small.
“If it had not been so popular as the North Star, we likely wouldn’t have known it was a Cepheid until modern times,” Engle said.
FROM YAHOO SCIENCE NEWS-
This deep image shows the Nebula (cyan) with a size of 2 million light-years discovered around the quasar UM287 (at the center of the image). The energetic radiation of the quasar makes the surrounding intergalactic gas glow revealing the physical structure of a cosmic web filament.
For the first time, astronomers were able to see a string of hot gas known as a filament that is thought to be part of the mysterious underlying structure that dictates the layout of all the stars and galaxies in our universe.
Scientists believe that matter in the universe is arranged into a gigantic web-like structure. This is called the cosmic web.
There are signatures of this structure in the remaining radiation from the Big Bang and in the layout of the universe itself. Without some mysterious force pulling visible matter into this web, galaxies would be randomly scattered across the universe. But they aren’t.
There is an excellent article/video on Bakersfieldnow.com in which the weatherman shows an image from space of what looks like God’s Hand. Obviously it’s entitled The Hand of God. It’s incredible and in spite of what the scientists say, which is mentioned in the article by the way, I still say that it looks like God’s Hand. Look it up and then get back to me on what you think. Thanks
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL WHO READ THIS. AND SORRY THAT I’VE BEEN AWAY SO LONG FROM MY BLOG. I PROMISE TO BLOG MORE IN 2014. PLEASE WATCH PROVING GOD ON H2. THE SCIENTISTS HAVE BEEN ABLE TO PROVE THAT GOD EXISTS IN OUR DNA.
At this moment, I’m watching a program on History 2 titled” Aliens and Temples of Gold.” Scientist believe that aliens came here because they needed the gold for their starships and planets. very interesting.
