We have a winner! The OSIRIS-REx asteroid's name is: Bennu!
The asteroid formerly known as 1999 RQ36 is now formally named (101955) Bennu, for a heron associated with the Egyptian god Osiris. The winning suggestion came from 8-year-old Mike Puzio of North Carolina (actually, he turned 9 earlier this month -- happy birthday, Mike!) So welcome to the solar system, Bennu, and I hope you don't mind us coming to visit in a few years.

Re: F.O.G.
"Hearing Gravity Waves" --Scientists Launch World-Wide Search
Gravity is responsible for the long-range order of the universe. Using Einstein's general relativity, we now think of gravity as the geometrical curvature of the four-dimensional fabric of space-time. Extreme cosmological events such as the merging of neutron stars or black holes induce ripples in the fabric of space-time, but these ripples, or gravitational waves, are extremely weak, and their detection has remained elusive.

In the next five years or so, says Mansi Kasliwal, an astronomer and Hubble Fellow and Carnegie-Princeton Fellow at the Observatories of the Carnegie Institution for Science. scientists are poised to discover proof that space and time can wrinkle in the form of gravitational waves. These waves were predicted almost 100 years ago by Albert Einstein's general theory of relativity, but have yet to be seen.
That could change soon when the latest, most sensitive experiments hunting gravitational waves come online. "There's so much activity and excitement in the field right now," said Kasliwal. "The momentum is really building."

Re: F.O.G.
Cosmic Flashes May Signal Birth of Black Holes

When a massive star exhausts its fuel, it collapses under its own gravity and produces a black hole, an object so dense that not even light can escape its gravitational grip. According to a new analysis by an astrophysicist at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech), just before the black hole forms, the dying star may generate a distinct burst of light that will allow astronomers to witness the birth of a new black hole for the first time.

Tony Piro, a postdoctoral scholar at Caltech, describes this signature light burst in a paper published in the May 1 issue of the Astrophysical Journal Letters. While some dying stars that result in black holes explode as gamma-ray bursts, which are among the most energetic phenomena in the universe, those cases are rare, requiring exotic circumstances, Piro explains. "We don't think most run-of-the-mill black holes are created that way." In most cases, according to one hypothesis, a dying star produces a black hole without a bang or a flash: the star would seemingly vanish from the sky -- an event dubbed an unnova. "You don't see a burst," he says. "You see a disappearance."

I wonder if most of us on here, FOG, have had these kinds of experiences? I've had other experiences but those were mostly with "feelings". Shows we are more in tune with our natural world. I bet if you take it back 100 years, most of our families all had there fair share of stories that would make the hair on the back of our neck stand up. Nowadays, we are all to busy, there is always white noise in the background, no one ever has time to just stop and listen. They called them superstitious. I call them more in tune, down to earth, more real, than our modern civilized world we have now.

Whoa! that is a some big shakes!
Yes, those stories are things I have now shared with my children. There are lots more too we saw a huge UFO go over our house in the early 80's and there were a lot of us at the time to witness it. It hovered over the field never making a sound with lights that blinked sequencing around the middle it was flat black in color we all stared and then looked at each asking 'Do you see that?' Then it started straight up with no sound and whizzed across the sky in great speed and disappeared. The next day these jets flew by off course we were told, the cows were laying at the top of the hill and two huge sonic booms went off we hit the ground it scared the hell out of us, broke all the windows out of our house and in the barn, the cows didn't give any milk for a week afterwards and they stood at the barn door mooing non-stop wanting in- scared. My mother was so mad! She called everyone and found out what military base was near us and got people on the phone and reamed them out! About a week later this military convoy comes up our mile long driveway and this man dressed to the hilt with all kinds of medals came to the door asking for mom. He had a check for her to pay for the windows and help with the milk loss. It was so funny to see her take him by the arm and walk towards the barn, her arms waving as she pointed and told him what happened you could see the pain in his face! We always lovingly referred to my mother as 'The General' I guess they met their match with her in that situation. lol. She wasn't giving an inch and she just kept calling until somebody listened to her and gave her an explanation as to why it happened and who was going to pay for all the windows and the milk loss.

Instead of jokes and glimpses....nd even helpfulnesss...there was and angry feel. We had a conversation....incense....and even a smudge to remove anger and negative vibes. I beleive he is still here...but no longer angry. My little girl alzo had visits from my husbands grandmother after she passed. She met her once whennshe was two and identified here couple years later as the lady that visited her room.

Nuclear Event in USA on Monday, 06 May, 2013 at 03:05 (03:05 AM) UTC.
Description
Operators of the Palisades Nuclear Power Plant in southwestern Michigan removed it from service Sunday morning because of a water leak from a tank, which last year caused seepage into the control room. Operators said they took the plant offline for repairs to the safety injection/refueling water tank. "There is no impact on the health and safety of plant employees or the public," Palisades spokeswoman Lindsay Rose said. The plant is along Lake Michigan in Van Buren County's Covert Township, about 80 miles east-northeast of Chicago.
[link to hisz.rsoe.hu]

This plant has been under extra NRC scrutiny after numerous safety issues. It's been shut down nine times since September, 2011, including in February for a separate water leakage problem.


It's on the opposite side of the lake from the plant in Illinois that spewed radioactive steam into the air last month.

Took me 1/2 an hour to find this I started a thread but it didn't come up went back to page 600 something wanted to post this there was an update on story and I know some of you live close to this

Officials: “Marked uptick in microquakes in past day” around giant sinkhole — Alert raised to Code 3
The Office of Conservation, in consultation with Assumption Parish Incident Command, is advising the public that the Oxy 3/sinkhole monitoring alert status has been raised to Code 3 – requiring all work directly on the sinkhole, Oxy 3 pad and within the containment berm to cease until further notice. Seismic monitoring had detected a sustained increase in the trend of micro-earthquake (MEQ) activity in the area around the sinkhole and Oxy 3 over the past week, and a marked uptick in MEQs in the past day. This pattern of MEQ increase has been identified as an indicator of likely shifting and sloughing in the sinkhole and the area below it, based on past observations. The seismic activity is limited to the Oxy 3/sinkhole area, showing no indication of impact to the Oxy 1 area. Monitoring is constantly ongoing in the area and Conservation will advise the public of significant changes in subsurface conditions.

Something else we talk about here a lot...
Arctic Ocean 'acidifying rapidly'

“Continued rapid change is a certainty,” he said.

“We have already passed critical thresholds. Even if we stop emissions now, acidification will last tens of thousands of years. It is a very big experiment.”
The research team monitored decreases in seawater pH of about 0.02 per decade since the late 1960s in the Iceland and Barents seas.

Chemical effects related to acidification have also been encountered in surface waters of the Bering Strait and the Canada Basin of the central Arctic Ocean.

Scientists estimate that the average acidity of surface ocean waters worldwide is now about 30% higher than before the Industrial Revolution.

The researchers say there is likely to be major change to the Arctic marine ecosystem as a result. Some key prey species like sea butterflies may be harmed. Other species may thrive. Adult fish look likely to be fairly resilient but the development of fish eggs might be harmed. It is too soon to tell.

Tails of Comet Lemmon
Explanation: What caused the interestingly intricate tails that Comet Lemmon displayed earlier this year? First of all, just about every comet that nears the Sun displays two tails: a dust tail and an ion tail. Comet Lemmon's dust tail, visible above and around the comet nucleus in off-white, is produced by sun-light reflecting dust shed by the comet's heated nucleus. Flowing and more sculptured, however, is C/2012 F6 (Lemmon)'s blue ion tail, created by the solar wind pushing ions expelled by the nucleus away from the Sun. Also of note is the coma seen surrounding Comet Lemmon's nucleus, tinted green by atomic carbon gas fluorescing in sunlight. The above image was taken from the dark skies of Namibia in mid-April. Comet Lemmon is fading as it now heads back to the outer Solar System.
