Diving into New Magnetic Territory with the MMS Mission

Our Magnetospheric Multiscale Mission, or MMS, is on a journey to study a new region of space.  

On May 4, 2017, after three months of precisely coordinated maneuvers, MMS reached its new orbit to begin studying the magnetic environment on the ever-rotating nighttime side of Earth.

The space around Earth is not as empty as it looks. It’s packed with high energy electrons and ions that zoom along magnetic field lines and surf along waves created by electric and magnetic fields.  

MMS studies how these particles move in order to understand a process known as magnetic reconnection, which occurs when magnetic fields explosively collide and re-align.

After launch, MMS started exploring the magnetic environment on the side of Earth closest to the sun. Now, MMS has been boosted into a new orbit that tops out twice as high as before, at over 98,000 miles above Earth’s surface.

The new orbit will allow the spacecraft to study magnetic reconnection on the night side of Earth, where the process is thought to cause the northern and southern lights and energize particles that fill the radiation belts, a doughnut-shaped region of trapped particles surrounding Earth.  

MMS uses four separate but identical spacecraft, which fly in a tight pyramid formation known as a tetrahedron. This allows MMS to map the magnetic environment in three dimensions.

MMS made many discoveries during its first two years in space, and its new orbit will open the door to even more. The information scientists get from MMS will help us better understand our space environment, which helps in planning future missions to explore even further beyond our planet.

Map by Edmund Halley from 1701 showing the degree to which magnetic north (as read by compasses) varies from the direction toward the North Pole. The thick line extending from the southeastern United States is the “line of no variation.” Halley personally traveled to make this map and hoped it would help sailors travel more accurately, but his own longitudinal readings were flawed.

Ilyushin Il-38N is an upgraded, more capable version of the Russian Navy’s Il-38 anti-submarine warfare aircraft. The new version is also capable of carrying out electronic intelligence (ELINT) missions. Besides, these aircraft can be used for mapping the magnetic and gravitational fields of the Northern Ice sea, and also for conducting scientific oceanographic research and underwater and air reconnaissance. The Il-38N is fitted with the Novella sensor package which dramatically expands the combat capabilities of the aircraft against underwater, surface and airborne targets. The new sensor includes radar, high resolution thermal imaging system, a magnetic anomaly detection system, an electro-optical detection system (including laser, TV and thermal channels), gravitational anomaly detector and other equipment. The radar has a maximum detection range of 320 kilometers. According to the Russian Navy’s public statements the majority of surviving Il-38 aircraft will be upgraded to the Il-38N configuration. The first Il-38N aircraft was introduced into service by the Russian Navy’s Northern Fleet in early March 2012.

Consciousness, Memory and Non-coding DNA

by Saṃsāran 

What’s the deal with consciousness?  First, physics tells us that that time that we exist within a fourth-dimensional matrix.  Our sense of progression through that matrix is only a function of our consciousness.  Now, we know that each of us is directly linked to the DNA molecule.  Every bit of DNA from a grain of rice to you is connected in an unbroken chain to the first self-replicating molecule. Visualized in a four-dimensional context this takes the form of a web, an actual physical web of connection throughout time.

Now modern gene theory tells us that only 3% of the DNA molecule in human beings binds to protein … in other words makes the physical you.  The other 97% contains INFORMATION other that required to make an eye or a skin cell. We are learning that some of this information is real world information which has made it into the gene.  Some sharks, for example, are born with an undersea magnetic map hardwired into their brain.  Monarch butterflies have a hard wired self-correcting map in their pin head sized brains.

Real world information encoded into the genetic code.  Think about that.  Our experiences can be transferred to our offspring.  We have millions of years of accumulated experiences which have been recorded in our DNA.  The ancients perceived this but knew nothing of DNA or evolution.  The best explanation they could come up with is the transmigration of souls.

A Traditional Crescent Moon Spell to Attract New Love

You will Need:

  • A map of your city or country or of the world for a cosmopolitan lover
  • One box of pins
  • One magnet

Timing:

Any night from the crescent moon until full moon

The Spell:

Scatter the pins over the map, saying: “Near and far o’er land and sea, a lover true, I call to me.”

Circle the magnet clockwise over the map, collecting all the pins.

Say continuously: “So do I draw love to me, as pin to magnet joined are we. So I call my lover true, come before the next moon is new.”

Put the pins in the unlidded box with the magnet inside on top of the unfolded map near a window.

On the night of the full moon, leave a silver candle to so that the candlelight and moonlight shine on this box.

Leave everything in place until love comes or repeat at the next new moon, whichever comes first.

Juno Spacecraft: What Do We Hope to Learn?

The Juno spacecraft has been traveling toward its destination since its launch in 2011, and is set to insert Jupiter’s orbit on July 4. Jupiter is by far the largest planet in the solar system. Humans have been studying it for hundreds of years, yet still many basic questions about the gas world remain.

The primary goal of the Juno spacecraft is to reveal the story of the formation and evolution of the planet Jupiter. Understanding the origin and evolution of Jupiter can provide the knowledge needed to help us understand the origin of our solar system and planetary systems around other stars.

Have We Visited Jupiter Before? Yes! In 1995, our Galileo mission (artist illustration above) made the voyage to Jupiter. One of its jobs was to drop a probe into Jupiter’s atmosphere. The data showed us that the composition was different than scientists thought, indicating that our theories of planetary formation were wrong.

What’s Different About This Visit? The Juno spacecraft will, for the first time, see below Jupiter’s dense clover of clouds. [Bonus Fact: This is why the mission was named after the Roman goddess, who was Jupiter’s wife, and who could also see through the clouds.]

Unlocking Jupiter’s Secrets

Specifically, Juno will…

  • Determine how much water is in Jupiter’s atmosphere, which helps determine which planet formation theory is correct (or if new theories are needed)
  • Look deep into Jupiter’s atmosphere to measure composition, temperature, cloud motions and other properties
  • Map Jupiter’s magnetic and gravity fields, revealing the planet’s deep structure
  • Explore and study Jupiter’s magnetosphere near the planet’s poles, especially the auroras – Jupiter’s northern and southern lights – providing new insights about how the planet’s enormous

Juno will let us take a giant step forward in our understanding of how giant planets form and the role these titans played in putting together the rest of the solar system.

Sleeper Awake!


Do not be fooled into thinking that human beings, or other animals, are born as individuals with only new memories. We have other memories, past memories, going back to times before we were human.


Scoff, skeptics, scoff but think about this: what is instinct? All instinct is memory, ancient memory, of programmed survival strategies. In fact in lower animals, that is animals without a developed brain for making NEW memories these ancient memories are ALL they have.


Yes indeed. Your conscious mind is a thin veneer. It is just a survival tool like instinct. We have instincts which go much deeper than thought. Ancient thoughts, from our distant ancestors, frozen now coded in our core being. Coded in our DNA and accessed on a level of consciousness deeper than waking consciousness. 


Do not make the mistake of thinking that instinct is just simple behaviors hardwired into primitive creatures. Nature gives up little but adds all the time. She did not give up instinct. She merely added conscious awareness to it as another layer. Instinct even in simple creatures is complex. Maps of the territory in Monarch butterflies along with moon positions to determine time and direction. Hard wired. Coded. Magnetic maps of the sea floor in sharks. Hard wired. Coded. 


You are not you any more than Hawaii is an island. It only appears separate because of the sea. In truth it is all one connected mass of the Earth’s surface. You are only separate because of the sea of your conscious mind.
It is an illusion. You are immortal. You are more than you.

When I look at your faces I see a tunnel. A tunnel of being all the way back to the beginning but not separate not within time but in space time. Oh you sleeping Gods who know not your divinity. Oh, you poor blind Gods fumbling in the dark.
