Is this the world's most scenic rail route? Bridges across vast canyons and Alpine architecture cut into the lush green mountainside... but it's actually the world's biggest MODEL railroad

On Sept. 21, 2014, a new NASA mission, the Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution (MAVEN), reached Mars after a 10-month journey. MAVEN will observe the Martian upper atmosphere, including keeping an eye on just what effect the solar wind and coronal mass ejections (CMEs) have on the red planet. Such observations not only help us understand the history of what led to the desert surface we see today, but also pave the way for protecting astronauts on future visits.

CME Week: Coronal Mass Ejections at Mars
September 23, 2014

Two main types of explosions occur on the sun: solar flares and coronal mass ejections. Unlike the energy and X-rays produced in a solar flare – which can reach Earth at the speed of light in eight minutes – coronal mass ejections are giant clouds of solar material that take one to three days to reach Earth. Once at Earth, these ejections, also called CMEs, can impact satellites in space or interfere with radio communications. During CME Week from Sept. 22 to 26, 2014, we explore different aspects of these giant eruptions that surge out from the star we live with.

Isn't this communism? Wasn't it already given a go? There are always strings attached to money that is just given to you by the government. Many people I know would gladly sit around doing nothing if provided with enough income to feed and shelter themselves. Then they would take that income and buy drugs. I know because it is already happening. Maybe in a perfect world such a system would work but this is far from being a perfect world.

Is Ebola Coming To America? Experts Ponder As Ebola Epidemic Rages In Africa.

New CDC and WHO data suggest that Africa’s Ebola outbreak is worse than expected — and in a worst-case scenario, the current Ebola epidemic could become endemic.

And those gloomy projections have experts worried that Ebola will inevitably arrive in the United States.

CDC: Ebola could infect 1.4 million people by January

If the world doesn't get the Ebola outbreak in West Africa under control quickly, the disease could become a permanent fixture in the region, spreading as routinely as malaria or the flu, the World Health Organization warns Tuesday in a new report.

In the worst-case scenario – if nothing is done to effectively control the outbreak — there could be 1.4 million Ebola cases in Liberia and Sierra Leone by the end of January, according to a report released Tuesday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Grim report :(

Thanks Lynn :)

In the new paper, the researchers report that “even in the faintest, dust-emitting regions there are no ‘clean’ windows in the sky” where measurements can be made without taking into account the dust contamination, which is greater than previously realized.


I could DEFINITELY have told them THAT ^ bit... and as for "clean windows"... SNORT! Good one! :)

Stepping beyond my house and out into the universe though - there must be some very disappointed people...


Your welcome Annie :-)

I think the results point to no cosmic inflation.

Sorry Lynn, I was a bit snowed under here yesterday. :-(

Cheers.


Not goo being snowed under. Glad your here :-)

Here is the original thread. http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/forum_thread.php?id=74330

Was it just dust? Harvard-led team’s cosmic inflation discovery uncertain

For months, astrophysicists have been hoping that data from the European Planck satellite would bring clarity to a Harvard-led team’s measurement that could either help explain the first moments of the universe, or might turn out to be merely galactic dust.

The results are finally out, and so is the verdict.

In March, researchers gathered in Cambridge to announce that they had measured a swirly polarization pattern of light from the ancient universe using a South Pole telescope called BICEP2. This was considered smoking gun evidence in favor of the theory of cosmic inflation -- the “bang” of the Big Bang. Within a few months however, outside researchers had begun to raise serious doubts about whether the groundbreaking measurement might have a more mundane explanation: starlight scattering off galactic dust.

Lynn,

I am alive and well.

Have been lurking and reading threads but, have been busy and not posted.


Nice to see you Dave :-)
