Today NASA Will Launch Infrared Telescope To Scan Entire Sky
Its going up today! Ramping up the search for a Brown Dwarf!



NASA will launch infrared telescope to scan entire sky
By Brandon Griggs, CNN
December 14, 2009 8:29 a.m. EST

(CNN) -- NASA is hours away from blasting a new telescope into space to scan the cosmos for undiscovered objects, including asteroids and comets that might threaten Earth.

The Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer, or WISE, spacecraft will employ an infrared camera to detect light- and heat-emitting objects that other orbiting telescopes, such as the Hubble, might miss.

WISE is scheduled to launch Monday morning aboard a Delta II rocket from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California. The launch window extends from 9:09 to 9:23 a.m. ET and was postponed from Friday because of a problem with the motion of a booster steering engine.

If the launch goes as planned, the unmanned WISE will spend the next nine months in orbit, 326 miles above the Earth, mapping the universe in infrared light. Its lens eventually will cover the whole sky 1½ times, snapping a picture every 11 seconds.

"The last time we mapped the whole sky at these particular infrared wavelengths was 26 years ago," said Edward "Ned" Wright of UCLA, the principal investigator of the mission. He was referring to WISE's predecessor, the Infrared Astronomical Satellite, which launched in 1983 and discovered six comets.

I would stay vigilant. They are sending up satellites to look for the brown dwarf they already know is there. It time to see just where and when this planet is going affect us.

And then there is the how much.

so you think they already "see" everything that's up there? i really don't, because there have been some pretty massive near earth objects recently that they didn't have a clue was there until weeks, even days before it passed.

No we don't see everything and they don't care about everything. They are concerned with one very elusive brown dwarf right now.

and so they can announce it at some point as a 'new' discovery. the disclosure plan is under way.

i do find it a bit sketchy of how many launches have taken place recently though. seems like every week they're launching a shuttle or some sort of rocket.

in one of my recent remote viewing sessions, i have already clearly seen the announcement with obama saying the world must unite to find a solution to the growing threat of the impact, but it will be too late, and he knows it. it will however reduce the panic, which was the intent.
