We Know Very Little Direct Information About Our Local Star, The ‘Sun’

Kitt Peak Solar Observatory – Pics about space

I had a very unusual childhood. All my parents and grandparents including the women, were all astronomers.  I grew up in various observatories from Yerkes in Wisconsin where I was born as my mother left the observatory that night and in California, Texas and above all, Kitt Peak in Arizona, a mountain my father chose because he thought it was beautiful and a great place to live.  I am watching in horror as NASA which my dad also, a rocket expert during WWII, helped found with Kennedy, is rapidly being destroyed by the childish ‘global warming’ hysteria which came out of left field, so to speak.  I watched it evolve because I know Al Gore and the others involved because they knew my dad.

At WUWT there is this raging debate about our local star which ignores the reality of what this thing is: A SMALL STAR which is insignificant compared to most stars.  It is very small, has little power but has endurance because the giant stars all die quickly and blow up spectacularly whereas ours rolls along at the outer fringe of the Milky Way Galaxy puttering along for a billion or so years, happily circled by little planets and so far, evading all the big, explosive, nasty hotter stars that menace us.  But alas, as we circle the Galaxy we are also being drawn into that ferocious inferno and will end up annihilated in the bitter end…try telling that to small children!

Which Grandpa Pettit merrily informed me when I was less than ten years old.  Hilarious, no?

US Media Lies About Foreign Powers And About Global Warming Solutions: All About Looting Citizens, Not Saving Or Protecting Us

▶ ‪#‎SpaceX‬ Falcon 9 rocket explodes minutes after launch on mission to space station – YouTube


U.S. Hired Dictators’ Favorite Hackers – The Daily Beast: DARPA and foreign governments all use this Italian hacking business to hack each other.  Meanwhile, the US whines about Russian and Chinese hackers attacking our systems.  This interminable whining would be funny if it wasn’t so pathetic.  Of course, news about how our government is riddled with hackers who attack foreign countries INCLUDING allies, this is not published far and wide.  Just like during the Vietnam war when I went to Radio Bulgaria and the Paris press to learn what was really going on, the US citizens who don’t carefully read foreign news are kept in this big black dark box of stupid.  Deaf and dumb, they are stacked like logs for a bonfire as they believe they are all well-informed.  Alas.

IEEE Paper By Keith Henson: Feasibility Study Building Orbital To Earth Solar Energy Arrays In Space

Screen shot 2015-05-07 at 8.20.54 AM

X2-class solar flare: the sun is very active today, we feel the warmth pretty quickly.


My former brother-in-law, Keith Henson,  was one of the founders of the L5 Society which I was a member of way back in the 1970’s, has been pushing for a proposed orbital solar energy transmission system from space to earth-based receptors which we hope would overcome the problem of land-based solar energy, that is, nighttime shutting it down.  Our desire for this sort of development in space is based on the concept that humans must begin moving off planet or have civilization rot away back to Roman standards (SLAVES) in the far future.  Research in this area limps along due to the Bilderberg guys focused nearly entirely on running various stupid global warming con games.  So work on development is at a snail’s pace…but is beginning to pick up.

Puff The Magic Dragon NASA Orbital Resupply Rocket Goes Poof—Explodes During Virginia Launch

Because the EU and US elites needed badly to demonize Russia again so they could control their home populations, scare them and herd them into destructive economic choices, they used the shooting down of the Air Malaysia flight as a propaganda tool.  But this works only if no one sees the actual evidence so they deliberately hid this now for two months.  I keep waiting for them to release this data online and of course, the longer it is buried, the more obvious it is, the actual data totally contradicts the official stories put out by Western media and all the EU/US rulers who conspired, yes, CONSPIRED to lie about this matter.  Now, investigators who are professionals are refusing to go along with the ‘Blame Putin!’ game and are telling the truth.  The contract for Putin to supply the Space Station was terminated even though it was very cheap, and replaced with a very expensive alternative run by our billionaires, the ‘Dragon’ rocket which was named after the song.

NASA Chief Wants Travel To Mars, But Reflexively Whines About Climate Change During Speech

Screen shot 2014-10-11 at 7.32.50 AM

NASA ebola suits…wait!  This is a picture of how we will exist on Mars, not Africa.  Mars is colder than Antarctica and Antarctica is quite cold.  Its atmosphere is 95% CO2.  Note how hot it is!  The poles are -195 degrees but on the equator, it can heat up to 70 degrees during the day and fall to -100 degrees at night.  Much of the CO2 is sequestered in winter on Mars at the poles.  Yesterday, the head of NASA talked about ‘climate change’ and Mars which illustrates how out of touch with reality, NASA has become due to the reflexive need to hook everything into ‘CO2 is evil’ storyline.

CIA Gets To Censor Report About CIA Illegal Torture After 9/11

NASA cancels all cooperation with Russia for sending astronauts into space due to Crimea voting to join Russia.  This will eliminate all US human presence in outerspace.  CIA torture report to remain largely secret despite declassification vote.  The investigation of the CIA cost taxpayers $40 million.  And then the government turns around and lets the criminals and they are war criminals, censor the report.  This is like the Christie bridge closing investigation run by his own lawyers that exonerated him while redacting nearly all the information linking him to that dirty trick event.

NASA Scientists Fear Sun Spot Activity May Vanish—Russia Issues Warnings About Mini-Ice Age

sun spot activity falls

A storm is coming: Sun’s magnetic field is set to FLIP and could lead to bad weather and radio disruption except this polar switch is weak as are the sun spots.  We have modern tools to observe a solar sun spot cessation so we can see for certain how the sun is 100% in control of wether we have an Ice Age or a Warm Age.  All debate will end once we discover the hard truth of the matter.  The graph above shows 100 years of sun spot activity.  The earlier observations were done by my grandfather and Hubble at the Mt. Wilson observatory and their own private observatories in Pasadena.  My grandfather loved to speculate about the Ice Ages and the sun and I suppose, after my father did the same thing, the likelihood both are right about sun spots and Ice Ages, this is horrible news but we can’t ignore it, either or pretend it doesn’t happen.
