How massive solar eruptions 'probably' detonated dozens of US sea mines

An extraordinary account of the impact space weather had on military operations in Vietnam in 1972 was found buried in the US Navy archives, according to a newly published article in Space Weather.

On August 4, 1972, the crew of a US Task Force 77 aircraft flying near a naval minefield in the waters off Hon La observed 20 to 25 explosions over about 30 seconds. They also witnessed an additional 25 to 30 mud spots in the waters nearby.

Destructor sea mines had been deployed here during Operation Pocket Money, a mining campaign launched in 1972 against principal North Vietnamese ports.

There was no obvious reason why the mines should have detonated. But it has now emerged the US Navy soon turned its attention to extreme solar activity at the time as a probable cause.

I find this to be a pretty big deal. Something some of us already knew happened, but to have proof...

WARTIME SPACE WEATHER--A SUNSPOT DETONATES NAVAL MINES: Researchers studying declassified Naval records have found evidence that a big sunspot may have caused dozens or perhaps even thousands of naval mines to explode off the coast of Vietnam in 1972. The solar storms of August '72 were already legendary at NASA. These new findings suggest that the event might have been even more potent than previously thought.

Earth Is Passing Through A Dark Matter "Hurricane" Right Now

Scientists have suggested that a dark matter “hurricane” might be making its way past the Sun, and it could be detectable here on Earth. Published in Physical Review D, the study led by Ciaran O'Hare from the University of Zaragoza in Spain looked at a collection of nearby stars moving in the same direction known as the S1 stream.

These are “believed to be the remnant of a dwarf galaxy that was swallowed by the Milky Way billions of years ago,” a statement from APS Physics noted. The S1 stream consisting of 30,000 stars was found last year by ESA’s Gaia satellite, which is mapping a billion stars in our galaxy. About 30 such streams have been found in our galaxy, each the remnant of a previous collision.

A SUNSPOT FROM THE NEXT SOLAR CYCLE: Over the weekend, a small sunspot materialized in the sun's northern hemisphere, then, hours later, vanished again. Such an occurrence is hardly unusual during solar minimum when sunspots are naturally small and short-lived. However, this ephemeral spot was noteworthy because its magnetic field was reversed--marking it as a member of the next solar cycle.

snip:
Note sunspot AR2727 just north of the sun's equator. It is a member of decaying Solar Cycle 24, the cycle that peaked back in 2012-2014. Next, compare its magnetic polarity to that of the other, unnumbered sunspot high above it. They are opposite. According to Hale's Law, this means the two sunspots belong to different solar cycles. The high latitude sunspot appears to be a harbinger of Solar Cycle 25.

 Quoting: joinca


RHESSI was a very valuable and ground-breaking mission. RHESSI first observed gamma rays from a solar eruption.

From Space Daily-

"High energies are always interesting in astronomy," University of Minnesota solar scientist Lindsay Glesener said. "They're the biggest explosions, the hottest plasma. But flares are going on at our Sun, which is right next to us and affects us in lots of ways. When I was a grad student, it took just one conversation with Robert Lin, the principal investigator from 2002 to 2012, to convince me flares are the most fascinating thing in the universe." (snip)

"RHESSI had several firsts," Dennis said. "No one had ever imaged X-rays at this high an energy level before, or imaged gamma rays at all. RHESSI made great strides by making energy measurements with higher resolution than had previously been possible."

Solar Flares Aren't Simple

Early RHESSI observations of a strong flare on April 15, 2002, showed X-rays coming from two different places at once: one high in the Sun's atmosphere and another lower down. Researchers interpreted this to mean a huge punch of energy occurred between the two spots.

After tracking the energy in the two-sided explosion, they realized part of the explosion's energy shot high into the Sun's atmosphere and burst into a cloud of hot plasma to become a coronal mass ejection, while the other part bore down towards the surface, exploding into a flare.

These explosions - the most powerful in the solar system - came to be known as solar eruptive events, in which the Sun's strongest flares and coronal mass ejections are linked, occurring at the same time.

RHESSI introduced solar researchers to entirely new questions on the nature of flares. During an intense October 2003 flare, scientists noticed X-rays and gamma rays coming from two different places.

Although electrons and ions have different masses, scientists expected them to originate from the same spot in the flare. Since each kind of emission reflects the presence of different kinds of particles, the unexpected disparity hinted at different mechanisms guiding the movements of each type of particle. Scientists still don't fully understand this process.

Thanks for the heads-up, Joinca!

I voted to save the site.

Hopefully, we'll have some flares before 2020.

A little more than a year ago, we had an X9 flare-- the strongest of Cycle 24. The present flare drought may continue for another 18-24 months.

It is not only vain, but wicked, in a legislator to frame laws in opposition to the laws of nature, and to arm them with the terrors of death. This is truly creating crimes in order to punish them.

I think have figured out the special settings and computer work-arounds to resume more regular posting. Hallelujah. Only on GLP do I have to tweak my settings...hmmmnnnn.

I have a backlog of 20-30 space news posts from the past 3 months but I'll only post those relevant to the Sun-Earth cosmo-system.

Just like us GLP Suntards, scientists worldwide are scrambling to figure out SOL and the unpredictable behavior of the magnetosphere. Get ready for a multitude of missions and a glut of space weather propaganda in the next decade.

EU Funds WHOLESUN Project:

The European Research Council (ERC) will fund an ambitious solar physics project at the MPS over the next six years. The research project called WHOLESUN aims at understanding the origin of solar magnetic activity by studying the Sun in its entirety.

The WHOLESUN project is made possible by advances in supercomputing. "The project will develop numerical models of the whole Sun that will run on exascale supercomputers that perform a billion billion arithmetic operations per second," explains principal investigator Allan Sacha Brun from CEA Saclay France.

The numerical models will be used in combination with observations to tackle many unsolved mysteries in solar physics. For example, it is not known how sunspots are formed, nor what triggers the most energetic solar flares. (snip)

The grants are part of the European Union's research and innovation programme Horizon 2020. The project WHOLESUN will receive 11.2 million euros over a duration of six years.
