"You need to know this. The oil barons may be held accountable after all. A year and a half after the BP oil spill murdered 11 men and spewed 5 million barrels of crude into the Gulf of Mexico – the Wall Street Journal is reporting that U.S. Prosecutors are readying the first criminal charges against BP. The Department of Justice is allegedly looking into charging engineers and at least one supervisor with providing false information to regulators – a felony charge that could carry with it one to five years in prison. While this is a good first step – it won't even effect the executives of an oil corporation that, from the top down, didn’t give a damn about the lives of its workers or the environment. Following an oil spill last month in Brazil – Brazilian prosecutors are going after the President of Chevron – charging him with crimes that could lead to jail time and banning Chevron from the country. We need to do the same things here with BP: throw some suits in jail for murder and ban BP from ever doing business again in the United States. "

A few post before on other pages ICARUS was mentioned, and also that on the C-forum they had a very interresting thread about it.


I left the opportunity for C-members like BHD/GHD to post their stuff here, but there was no response.

I do think that that thread contains serious BEZERK-ness,
so since the thread is public, I will C/P snips of it here.


With special thanks to all

"Cometes Icarus is now retconned 33 days from November the 42nd."

"November 42nd", with 30 days in November, could mean 12th of December, and 33 days on from that puts it at January 14th.

>> could some one else check that?

The word retconned is a reference to rewriting of ficticious scripts, so the Icarus reference may be part of a comic or myth.
The latter being the obvious.

The word Comet is also spelled "Cometes". Which looks intentional. Our word COMET comes from the Latin word Cometes.
A clue methinks.

In 1967, PROJECT ICARUS, was a task assigned by MIT Professor Paul Sandorff to his students based on the Icarus comet not passing by Earth,
but hitting it. His task was for them to work out a way of saving the Earth.

They basically hijacked the Apollo mission, and created (4-5) Saturn 5 rockets, each with explosive war heads that would fragment the comet.

Comet defies death, brushes up to sun and lives
[link to www.bostonherald.com]

WASHINGTON — A small comet survived what astronomers figured would be a sure death when it danced uncomfortably close to the broiling sun.

Comet Lovejoy, which was only discovered a couple of weeks ago, was supposed to melt Thursday night when it came close to where temperatures hit several million degrees. Astronomers had tracked 2,000 other sun-grazing comets make the same suicidal trip. None had ever survived.

If you subscribe to the electric universe theory, then in a way, a comet could be considered a USB drive.

Phaeton linked with The River Eridanus (son of the Sun)
The constellation Eridanus has a sun symilar to our sun ....



Quote
- The Greeks also give it the cognomen Eridanus, from Eridanus the son of the Sun, whom people call Phaeton. After being struck by lightning he fell into this river and died.

"The river may have been named Eridanos (Early Burnt) after the story of Phaethon, the boy who attempted to drive the chariot of the sun, and fell flaming into the waters of this mythical river"



Typical how "meanings" seem to correspond with the discusion made here in this topic around the subject ....


Quote
- The name Phaeton comes from the Indo-European root *bhá-1 'To shine'. Derivatives: beacon, beckon, buoy, buoyant, ... banner, banneret¹, banneret² (from Latin bandere from Late Latin bandum, banner, standard, 'identifying sign,' also 'company united under a particular banner'), phos-, phot, photo-, photons (electromagnetic waves. "An angle of light coming from above to the earth is a Photon which science calls a messenger particle. An Angel of Light coming down from above is considered spiritually as a messenger of God" [2]), phosphorus (because it glows in the dark, our bones are mainly calcium phosphate), ... , Phaëthon (Phaeton or Phaethon from Greek phaeithein, to shine, burn), ... -phane, phantasm, phantom, phase (Latin phases also ‘moon phases’, from Greek from phainein ‘to show’,‘appearance’), pheno-, phenomenon, ... ... Phanerozoic (570 million years ago to the present period during which the Earth has been inhabited by multicellular organisms that leave fossil traces in the rocks), ... [Pokorny 1. bha- 104. Watkins]




Interresting to know :

Quote

- The -danus of Eridanus is cognate with the Proto-Indo-European word for 'river'; *danu- 'River'.

Klein sees a relationship with the words Danube and Danae (daughter of Acrisius and mother of Perseus): "Danaus a king of Argos, who commanded his fifty daughters, the Danaides [see story], to murder their husbands on the wedding night; 'the Danaans', i.e. 'descendants or subjects of Danaus', which probably derives from Hebrew-Phoenician Danish and literally means 'one who judges'; the Danaans are identical with the men of Tanaus, king of the Scythians, who allegedly came to Argos in the 15th century B.C. and became blended with the Greeks. Kretschmer also assumes that there is a relationship between Tanaus and the river names Tanais (now called the Don) and Latin Danubius (whence French and English Danube), and Danu-, name of an Indo-Iranian people". The Danes live near the Baltic sea [amber] which was the river basin of the river, currently named Eridanos.

A number of tribes are believed to be related to this root: The Tuatha De Danann ('People of the goddess Danu') are the Irish race of gods founded by the goddess Danu. Danaoi was the name of the Greeks (or a tribe of Greeks) during the Trojan war. The tribe of Dan from Israel.



Goddess Danu ... D'Anu ?? King Anu ?? Anunaki ??


Here below seems to be decribed how Phaethon rode the chariot of his father Helios >
LOVEJOY-Icarus who almost plunged into the sun ... his wings were melted halfway {half-consumed} ... and why Lovejoy is also in the media said to be half his size !

Probably in epic times long ago, a part of this comet plunged in a river (Eridanos, Eridanus) on Earth and its explosion cauzed the pinetrees to "weep" , to cry their 'sap' = tears of amber. [I had to think about the Tungaska event also, but then little bit different].


the sun chariot could be a different name for the vehicle which drives a comet/meteorite/asteroid around the sun ... its trajectory.



Quote
- Typhon to Zeus:
I will drag down from heaven the fiery Eridanos whose course is among the stars, and bring him back to a new home in the Celtic land: he shall be water again, and the sky shall be bare of the river of fire."


Ovid, Metamorphoses 2.319 (:
But Phaethon [after being struck by Zeus from the chariot of the Sun], flames ravaging his glowing hair, is hurled headlong, leaving a long trail in the air, as sometimes a star does in the clear sky, appearing to fall although it does not fall. Far from his own country, in a distant part of the world, the river god Eridanus takes him from the air, and bathes his smoke-blackened face. There the nymphs consign his body, still smoking from that triple-forked flame, to the earth, and they also carve a verse in the rock:

HERE PHAETHON LIES WHO THE SUN’S JOURNEY MADE
DARED ALL THOUGH HE BY WEAKNESS WAS BETRAYED


Phaethon falls into the river Eridanus where, according to Apollonius Rhodius (3rd century BC), the Argonauts could smell the stench of his smouldering corpse when they came upon it in their travels:

"And far on sped Argo under sail, and entered deep into the stream of Eridanus; where once, smitten on the breast by the blazing bolt, Phaethon half-consumed fell from the chariot of Helios into the opening of that deep lake; and even now it belcheth up heavy steam clouds from the smouldering wound. ... And all around the maidens, the daughters of Helios, enclosed in tall poplars, wretchedly wail a piteous plaint; and from their eyes they shed on the ground bright drops of amber. These are dried by the sun upon the sand; but whenever the waters of the dark lake flow over the strand before the blast of the wailing wind, then they roll on in a mass into Eridanus with swelling tide. But the Celts have attached this story to them, that these are the tears of Leto's son, Apollo, that are borne along by the eddies, the countless tears that he shed aforetime when he came to the sacred race of the Hyperboreans and left shining heaven at the chiding of his father, being in wrath concerning his son [Asclepius, see Ophiuchus] whom divine Coronis bare in bright Lacereia at the mouth of Amyrus. And such is the story told among these men. But no desire for food or drink seized the heroes nor were their thoughts turned to joy. But they were sorely afflicted all day, heavy and faint at heart, with the noisome stench, hard to endure, which the streams of Eridanus sent forth from Phaethon still burning; and at night they heard the piercing lament of the daughters of Helios, wailing with shrill voice; and, as they lamented, their tears were borne on the water like drops of oil." [Apollonius Rhodius, Argonautica 11, 592-626]



His river receives the body of Phaethon after the destruction of the sun chariot.

"[Description of an ancient Greek painting:] Golden are the tears of the Heliades. The story is that they are shed for Phaethon; for in his passion for driving this son of Helios (the Sun) ventured to mount his father’s chariot, but because he did not keep a firm rein he came to grief and fell into the Eridanos ... Now the youth is [depicted] thrown from the chariot and is falling headlong - for his hair is on fire and his breast smouldering with the heat; his fall will end in the river Eridanos and will furnish this stream with a mythical tale ... As for the women on the bank, not yet completely transformed into trees, men say that the Heliades on account of their brother’s mishap changed their nature and became trees, and that they shed tears [golden-amber] ...The river [Eridanos] also laments, emerging from his eddying stream, and offers his bosom to receive Phaethon - for the attitude is of one ready to receive – and soon he will harvest the tears of the Heliades; for the breezes and the chills which it exhales will turn into stone the tear-drops of the poplar trees, and it will catch them as they fall and conduct them through its bright waters to the barbarians by Okeanos." [Philostratus the Elder, Imagines 1.11 (9)]

First meteor shower of 2012 comes next week
« on: December 28, 2011, 10:48:30 PM »


In 2011, most of the best meteor showers occurred when the moon was close to full. This natural "light pollution" made the fainter meteors impossible to see.

But 2012 starts out with a fine meteor shower, the Quadrantids, with absolutely no moon to interfere with the viewing. The Quadrantid meteor shower will peak on Jan. 4 at about 2 a.m. EST (0700 GMT).

New oil?
« on: December 24, 2011, 06:48:33 AM »




Craig Venter is currently working with the folks at Exxon, and they are funding a new program to the tune of $600million.
It involves the genetic mutation and re-engineering of algaes to ingest and absorb C02, and create a viable biofuel.

He's already done this you may say, with BP and the whole synthia/GoM/corexit thing.

Nope, this is new, and he is making a massive investment of his own in this venture, not seeing a penny of return for at least 10 years.

On the face of it, it looks like more of the same frankenstein bio engineering he is famed for. But think about it a bit more. We apparently have large amounts of C02 that are doing us harm at present. We also have a finite resource, oil, that is needed more and more and will ultimately become more expensive.

[personally I believe it is abiotic, and cant run out. However it can be depleted faster than it can be replenished.]

So, we have all these agressive tactics around the world, that are purely designed to guarantee energy, and nearly all political agendas are based around this fact.

If this works, and algae can indeed be used to remove C02 and create biofuels, in large proportions, with no more input than a body of water and the sun, then imagine the immediate change in the political and military agenda.

The mindset will change from a defender and collector of a finite resource to simply a user of an infinite and clean resource.
The green movement has been one of the most influential and successful impacts on modern politics, over just about any other agenda. Theyuse terms like sustainability, environment and long term survival to describe and offset many political decisions. So with that basic need for energy fullfilled, and the green movement no longer attacking, but agreeing and complementing the new energy resource, which btw will require no change of existing industrial infrastructure, what will their new charge be? What will the politicians be able to use as veiled taunts of apocaliptic outcomes should their policies not be followed? I think they'll be stuffed! And shown up for what they are.

And with Mr Average Joe being able to set up such a plant (pun) in his own back yard or roof, then the distribution issue will also be lessened.

Indeed, not relying on certain countries to produce oil, and other countries to refine and distribute it, will change the dynamics of the planet. Why would we need such large armies to defend the black stuff?

Anyway, just a thought I had regarding an idea that I think Six String Woodie originally proposed about the GoM being made in to a giant algae farm. It would still involve shutting off the in and out of the GoM, but that kind of engineering isnt too hard given what they have engineered around the world under the guise of natural earth quakes and the like...

Maybe we've go this Venter guy all wrong?

Japan’s March 11 Earthquake Almost Shook Space: Study
« on: August 08, 2011, 01:30:14 PM »




Vibrations from the devastating earthquake that hit Japan in March 2011, which triggered a massive tsunami, had almost reached the outer space, a new study has revealed.

According to the atmosphere-vibrations study published in the Journal of Geophysical Research, the vibrations from Japan quake and tsunami waves traveled towards upper atmosphere, the ionosphere, where they were amplified to thousands of times their original sizes, the National Geographic News reported.

The velocity and the magnitude of the atmospheric disturbance have not yet been revealed but March 11 earthquake and the following tsunami caused the biggest such phenomenon ever, researchers said.

Such a trend has also been observed during other massive earthquakes in the world.

On December 26, 2004, the 9.3 magnitude Sumatra earthquake and tsunami in the Indian Ocean had excited “giant” disturbances in the ionosphere, according to the journal’s report in 2006.

Nuclear plant leak in Antarctica suspected of causing cancer

Nuclear plant leak in Antarctica suspected of causing cancer
Posted on March 5, 2011 by Rick Spilman (Thanks to Phil Leon for passing the articles along.)


Reports are surfacing of Navy veterans contracting cancer after serving at the McMurdo Station in Antarctica when the station was powered by a problem-prone nuclear power plant.

Nuclear plant leak in Antarctica suspected of causing cancer

Charlie Swinney died one year ago from cancer that ravaged his body for more than a decade, but the Navy veteran may have left behind an important clue into what caused his death.

Our exclusive investigation uncovered multiple letters that Swinney sent to the U.S. Veterans Administration describing a nuclear plant that was built at a base he served at in Antarctica.

The McMurdo Nuclear plant was built in Antarctica in the early 1960s and provided power to the base until it was shut down in 1972. Swinney and an estimated 15,000 other veterans served at McMurdo Station as part of a support team throughout the plant’s operation.

The Navy’s final operating report found the plant had 438 malfunctions over its history, including leaking water surrounding the reactor and hairline cracks in the reactor liner as early as 1964.


As noted by an article in Wired Magazine: While the idea of placing a nuclear plant in such an ecologically sensitive location may seem like madness today, in the pre-Chernobyl, pre–Three Mile Island world of 1962, nuclear power was seen as a cost-effective, efficient and relatively safe way of providing power to permanent Antarctic research stations.

From 1962 to 1972, power fro electricity and water distillation was supplied by a PM-3A nuclear reactor. The reactor not perform to specifications and was powered by strontium-90 pellets, a particularly dangerous fuel because of its high radioactivity before entering the nuclear core. The reactor was shut down in 1972 after a leak in the reactor’s pressure vessel was discovered during a routine inspection. The reactor and 7700 cubic metres of irradiated rock and dirt was shipped to California for disposal.

Navy Veterans Diagnosed with Cancer After Antarctica Mission

“The first thing the doctors asked me was, well, that’s the type of cancer you typically get from exposure from radiation,” Bob Boyles of North Carolina said.

The Navy’s final operating report, obtained by Action 2 News, shows a history of repeated problems — 438 malfunctions at the nuclear power plant between 1964 and 1972, including “hairline cracks” and leaking water near the reactor. What finally forced the Navy to shut it down was the possibility of stress corrosion cracking in the piping. Yet the report concludes “no significant increase” in radiation exposure, which the Navy maintains today.

“It’s been peculiar because all these people are saying, OK, now I’ve got cancer. Why is it such a high density of people in such a small group?” Chock said. In remission from testicular cancer, as Chock said, he’s one of the lucky ones.

Charlie Swinney, from Ohio, died last year after battling cancer for 16 years. ”He had over 200 tumors in his body. He was just filled at that point.” his widow, Elaine Swinney, said. Swinney was denied VA benefits, leaving his family bankrupt. ”He felt like it was kicked to the curb. He felt like he didn’t count,” Mrs. Swinney said.

Our investigation shows the Swinneys weren’t alone. Before dying, in 2002 Karl Sackman, from Idaho, wrote the VA saying, “It was common knowledge, among the troops, that leaks from the facilities occurred in the 1960s.” The VA denied him, saying his cancer wasn’t related to his service at McMurdo Station. Boyles was denied, too.

Some comments on this -

Chief says:
April 12, 2011 at 7:35 pm

I served in Summer Support in Antarctica for three Austral summers. I reported to the command in Davisville, RI in June of 1973. I was the Leading Chief of the Electronics Shop on the hill in McMurdo.

One factual error was that the reactor was not shut down in 1972. The crack in the containment vessel was discovered in either June or July of 1973.

Second factual error was an incomplete statement. In conforming to the requirements of the Antarctic Treaty, of which the United States was a signatory, all irradiated surface material had to be removed from the continent. This material was taken to California to be deposited at the naval base at Port Hueneme. The state of California would not let the Navy off-load the irradiated volcanic material. The ship finally off-loaded the cargo at the Savannah River Plant near Aiken, South Carolina.

My email is: pparker002@woh.rr.com I’ll answer any question that I can.

BTW – I knew Charlie Swinney. He was a loadmaster on C-130 type aircraft.

Don't know if this is any help with the Quadrantids...

Quadrantids meteor shower radiates from the northern part of Bootes (the herdsman), an area of sky that was once occupied by the now abandoned constellation of Quadrans Muralis, the Mural Quadrant.
The shower reaches a peak of about 100 meteors/hour on January 3-4th each year.

MURAL????
Remember that MURAL-painting in -was it Denver?- airport ????
we talked about it before on this thread ...

[link to meteorshowersonline.com]
The Quadrantid meteor shower is one of the strongest meteor showers of the year, but observers can be disappointed if conditions are not just right. The point from where the Quadrantid meteors appear to radiate is located within the extinct constellation Quadrans Muralis. On modern star charts, this radiant is located where the constellations Hercules, Boötes, and Draco meet in the sky.

During the period spanning 1965 to 1971, members of the BAA observed rates as low as 65 per hour and as high as 190 per hour, while members of the Nippon Meteor Society determined a rate of 101 per hour in 1975. Of course, another probable factor in the variation in hourly rates from one year to the next may be the planet Jupiter.
The planet Jupiter plays a significant role in this meteor stream's evolution.

The planet Jupiter plays a significant role in this meteor stream's evolution. The first indication of this came in 1918, when W. F. Denning and Mrs. Fiammetta Wilson (England) noted their surprise to find the main radiant to be about eight degrees north of the "normal" radiant. They stated that a more northerly radiant had been suspected in January 1916 and 1917, "but the data at the time were regarded as insufficient." Independent confirmations of the 1918 radiant came from several other observers in England and it was noted that a weak shower actually did occur from the normal radiant as well. This type of alteration represents a short-term alteration of the orbit by Jupiter.

The long-term effect of Jupiter on the Quadrantid stream was first investigated by S. E. Hamid and M. N. Youssef in 1963. They took the orbits of six Quadrantid meteors that were photographed in 1954 and applied perturbations by Jupiter for the past 5000 years. While the Quadrantid orbit passes as close as 92 million miles from the sun now, they noted the orbit was significantly different 1500 years ago, when the orbit passed as close as 10 million miles from the sun. Interestingly, about 4000 years ago, the orbit was very similar to today's orbit. The authors speculated that the stream's parent comet was captured by Jupiter about 4000 years ago and shortly thereafter it developed meteors along its path. "Because an appreciable number of these meteors, which now form the Quadrantids, did not suffer another close approach to Jupiter, the shower is observed to be compact." Interestingly, Hamid and F. L. Whipple noted later in 1963 that the Quadrantid orbit was very similar to that of the Delta Aquarids about 1300-1400 years ago. They added, "the physical characteristics of the meteoroids belonging to the two streams appear to be similar, as judged by their light curves." During 1979, Iwan P. Williams, Carl D. Murray and David W. Hughes essentially confirmed the results of Hamid and Youssef, but looked at the future evolution of the orbit. They noted that Jupiter would eventually alter the orbit so that it would no longer intersect the Earth's orbit. They predicted that the Quadrantids would no longer be visible by the year 2400.



Interresting is that the PARENT COMET is UNKNOWN !!


Myth ... :
[link to www.stargazers.iinet.net.au]
Most of the mythology connected with this constellation belongs to Arcturus, the brightest star in the Northern hemisphere of the sky. Boötes apparently actually means "the ox driver" but because he is following the celestial bears around the poles and Arcturus means "bear herder" as well the two have become synonymous. In Greek mythology Boötes was seen as Icarius, the first maker of wine. The story goes that one day Icarius, who was naturally a kind man, gave shelter to a stranger, who was the god Bacchus in disguise. Bacchus was delighted with Icarius' hospitality and as a reward, Bacchus taught Icarius how to make wine from the grapes he grew. The nearby constellation of Canes Venatici the Hunting Dogs is commonly associated with Boötes as well.

Not ICARUS but Icarius ....


Relation with DRACO :
[link to www.constellationsofwords.com]
Iota (ι) Draco, Edasich, is an orange star in the Dragon.
...
It marks the radiant point of the Quadrantid meteors of the 2nd and 3rd of January, so called from the adjacent Mural Quadrant.
...
Influences: According to Ptolemy the bright stars are like Saturn and Mars. Draco gives an artistic and emotional but somber nature, a penetrating and analytical mind, much travel and many friends but danger of robbery and of accidental poisoning. It was said by the Ancients that when a comet was here poison was scattered over the world. By the Kabalists it is associated with the Hebrew letter Mem and the 13th Tarot Trump "Death." [Robson*, p.43.]



[link to www.astronomyca.com]
Computer modelling suggests that the stream was active from a radiant in Aquarius during July until the early centuries AD, before being perturbed away from encounter with Earth. Chinese and other annals provide evidence for this shower. Having been inactive for over a thousand years, the stream began to be encountered at the descending node of its orbit once more from about 1700 onwards, as the modern Quadrantid shower.


Okay very interresting all the above :)

An other astronomical article that caught my eye is this one:


Backward star ain't from around here [link to www.newscientist.com]
... Of the stars, 14 had the same abundance of elements – such as sodium, magnesium, zirconium, barium – as Omega Centauri, the galaxy's most luminous globular cluster. The cluster emits a million times more light than the sun.
"It's long been thought that Omega Centauri is the left-over nucleus of a dwarf galaxy that merged with the Milky Way," says Wylie-de Boer, whose paper will appear in the Astronomical Journal. "During the merger, the outer regions of this dwarf galaxy were stripped."



This RETROGARDE ALIEN [from other much older Galaxy] Kaptyens star is close to Eridani & Epsilon Eridani !!

Remember our postings a few pages ago about the possibility that came from an other Galaxy that merged with our Galaxy, and that this othervGalaxy was ALUMINIUM BASED !!???!
Could this retrograde star be a part of that Aluminium-galaxy ????


In a breakthrough mainstream Science News Release, information obviating the Sagittarius Dwarf Galaxy as parent to our Solar System rather than the Milky Way Galaxy as completely plausible was released evidencing our Solar System was actually formed in a whole different elemental galactic setting -- one of Aluminum -- [Dwarf Galaxy Genesis] rather than Iron -- [Milky Way Genesis].

'Intelligent' slime able to navigate its way out of maze
A Japanese scientist is exploring the power of slime mould in an attempt to uncover the key to intelligence.
[link to www.telegraph.co.uk]

Toshiyuki Nakagaki, a professor at Future University Hakodate, northern Japan, cultivates the slime in petri dishes and has discovered how the brainless organism is able to “organise” its cells to create the most direct route through a maze in order to reach a source of food ...

The findings highlight how slime mould possesses information processing abilities shared by humans which are more sophisticated than the most advanced computers ...

... examining the information-professing capabilities of slime as a potential key to designing biocomputers of the future capable of solving complex problems.

Previous research has shown how slime moulds become inactive when “stressed” due to changes in temperature or humidity and are subsequently able to “remember” and anticipate such situations reoccurring.

Atsushi Tero, from Kyushu University, southern Japan, who conducted the research, believes that the intelligence skills possessed by slime mould networks could potentially be used in the future design of transport systems or electric transmission lines.

"Computers are not so good at analysing the best routes that connect many base points because the volume of calculations becomes too large for them," he said.
"But slime moulds, without calculating all the possible options, can flow over areas in an impromptu manner and gradually find the best routes.”

Deep Gulf drilling thrives 18 mos. after BP spill
December 30, 2011
[link to news.yahoo.com]

SNIPS

Two hundred miles off the coast of Texas, ribbons of pipe are reaching for oil and natural gas deeper below the ocean's surface than ever before. These pipes, which run nearly two miles deep, are connected to a floating platform that is so remote Shell named it Perdido, which means "lost" in Spanish

But the drilling moratorium was eventually lifted and the Obama administration issued the first new drilling permit in March. Now the Gulf is humming again and oil executives describe it as the world's best place to drill.

By early 2012 there will be more rigs in the Gulf designed to drill in its "deep water" - defined as 2,000 feet or deeper - than before the spill.

In November, Perdido began pumping oil from a field called Tobago; the well begins 9,627 feet below the surface of the Gulf. No other well on the globe produces oil in deeper water and that's about as deep as the Gulf gets. For drillers, that means the entire Gulf is now within reach.

Perdido, which pumps the equivalent of 60,000 barrels of oil and natural gas a day, will eventually yield 100,000 barrels per day from 35 wells in a 30-mile radius, according to Shell. It will likely produce oil for decades - in all, as much as 360 million barrels of oil and 750 billion cubic feet of natural gas, according to Wood Mackenzie.

"Everybody wants to be there," says Mohammad Rahman, the lead Gulf analyst for Wood Mackenzie.
By early 2012, there will be 40 deepwater rigs in the Gulf, up from 37 before the BP spill, according to Cinnamon Odell of ODS-Petrodata. BP received its first permit to drill in late October.

Thanks to more accurate imaging technologies, drillers are able to see under geologic formations that used to confound geologists. In June, ExxonMobil Corp. said it found 700 million barrels of oil - one of the biggest discoveries in the Gulf in last decade. In September, Chevron and BP also announced major finds, thought to be in the hundreds of millions of barrels of oil.
Many of the Gulf's recent discoveries are in a geologic formation known as the Lower Tertiary, formed between 23 million and 65 million years ago. Perdido, which is operated by Shell and owned jointly by Shell, Chevron and BP, is the first to produce oil from this formation. Analysts say it could hold 15 billion barrels of oil.

NASA's twin moon probes to enter orbit this weekend
Grail spacecraft will map the lunar gravity field in unprecedented detail
[link to www.msnbc.msn.com]



"Grail is a journey to the center of the moon," Zuber told reporters Wednesday. The two probes' measurements, along with data collected by other spacecraft, she added, "will enable us to reconstruct the moon's early evolution."

This information, in turn, could shed light on how other large objects in the inner solar system came to be, researchers have said.

Grail mission to study lunar composition, look for buried evidence of 'Big Splat'

Among the most interesting questions scientists will attempt to answer is if our moon holds the wrecked body of a lost sibling body.

Evidence of the crash, if it occurred, should be buried inside the moon, in the form of remnant radioactive materials, like uranium and thorium, which would have been heated in the smash-up.

NEWS: Earth Must Have Another Moon, Say Astronomers [link to news.discovery.com]

According to a recently published paper, scientists suspect a second moon once circled Earth in the same orbit and at roughly the same speed as our moon. It eventually bumped into its companion, but instead of causing an impact crater, the second moon stuck and made a mountain. That feature today would be the lunar highlands located on the side of the moon that permanently faces away from Earth.

"One prediction of this model is that the whole exterior of the moon was once molten, and it started to cool off — actually cooled from the outside in — so you were left with a molten channel in the base of the moon's crust," said Maria Zuber, a planetary scientist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Simulations show that when the second moon hit our moon, the molten material was pushed around to the near side, traces of which should remain today.

Quoting: Krispy

I've read various mythologies that have said the Earth during its evolution has had no moons, two moons and of course one moon. We know material from space is added to the Earth all the time, and I guess to the Moon as well, but hadn't considered an accretion process along the lines considered here.
I don't subscribe to the Moon being born from a collision, as alluded to by the mainstream science, rather the Moon shows many traits of artificiality. It's either very hollowed out or completely artificial and probably very carefully parked in its orbit around us.
Having said that I think the Moon does affect the way Earth moves through the fields of this solar system in its orbit of the Sun. It has a push me pull you effect, alternately speeding up the Earth in its orbit, or slowing it down...dependant on whether the Moon is ahead of the Earth in its orbit, or behind. Is the Moon partly responsible for the quite low level vibrations Earth has endured for the millenia the Moon has been here?
I have read many articles and several books mentioning that during this upgrade that we are going through we will lose the Moon. Kraspedons book also says Earth will lose its Moon during the changes, and his ET visitor went on to say one of the moons of Mars will be lost, reduced to rocks, and that when the planetary orbits expand outward Pluto will also be lost to the system.
Mmmm sounds like a negative ET clearout, think some satellites of Saturn need checking out as well.
Strange that Pluto was downgraded from a planet a while ago, ok it looks like a captured body being at 11 degrees to the ecliptic, but it does orbit the Sun and the astronomical community is not usually that diligent at clearing up its previous mistakes.

Arctic settles into new phase – warmer, greener, and less ice
December 1, 2011 [link to www.noaanews.noaa.gov]

An international team of scientists who monitor the rapid changes in the Earth’s northern polar region say that the Arctic is entering a new state – one with warmer air and water temperatures, less summer sea ice and snow cover, and a changed ocean
chemistry.

... Monica Medina, NOAA principal deputy under secretary of commerce for oceans and atmosphere. “With a greener and warmer Arctic, more development is likely. Reports like this one help us to prepare for increasing demands on Arctic resources so that better decisions can be made about how to manage and protect these more valuable and increasingly available resources.”

Among the 2011 highlights are:
•Atmosphere: In 2011, the average annual near-surface air temperatures over much of the Arctic Ocean were approximately 2.5° F (1.5° C) greater than the 1981-2010 baseline period.

•Sea ice: Minimum Arctic sea ice area in September 2011 was the second lowest recorded by satellite since 1979.

•Ocean: Arctic Ocean temperature and salinity may be stabilizing after a period of warming and freshening. Acidification of sea water (“ocean acidification”) as a result of carbon dioxide absorption has also been documented in the Beaufort and Chukchi seas.

•Land: Arctic tundra vegetation continues to increase and is associated with higher air temperatures over most of the Arctic land mass.


The Report Card tracks the Arctic atmosphere, sea ice, biology, ocean, land, and Greenland. This year, new sections were added, including, greenhouse gases, ozone and ultraviolet radiation, ocean acidification, Arctic Ocean primary productivity, and lake ice. The Arctic Report Card [link to www.arctic.noaa.gov] is available online.

 Quoting: Krispy71


More info about this:

Comprehensive study makes key findings of ocean pH variations
December 22, 2011

A group of 19 scientists from five research organizations have conducted the broadest field study of ocean acidification to date using sensors developed at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UC San Diego.

Despite surveying 15 different ocean regions, the authors noted that they only made observations on coastal surface oceans and that more study is needed in deeper ocean regions farther away from land. Martz noted that large-scale programs like Argo, in which a network of more than 3,000 floats distributed throughout the oceans, measure fundamental data.
