Hey y’all. I found another interesting article, and I’m going to pass it on to you. This article sounds more like what we all would expect from new tech, and tells us of some of the problems we might expect.
Hey y’all. Here is an opinion of the startlink internet service I found in my news feeds. Maybe it will be the service you’re looking for.
I have a bunch of stuff to take care of today, so feel free to watch a couple of videos and make some popcorn. I just swept the place out, and caught all of the spiders that were running around in here.
Today we all can just space out! Are the new plans to go to Mars because too many anomalies have been found? Is any of this stuff for real? If there are intelligent beings on the Red Planet, does it make a difference to you?
One of these videos would suggest the video was actually shot here on “the pretty blue planet” Earth.
Some of the things shown are definitely not to be believed, so as usual you can watch and just try to be entertained. Y’all have a great day.

Is this a part of a shovel or maybe a teeth from a “shovel wheel” ??
Look also at the anomaly at the end of the video that looks like a foot and machine carved metal.

This whole area has caught my eye. It almost looks like coral or possibly something that has been under water. I didn’t mention this in the video but there also seems to be tracks from something other then the rover maybe? Could just be the soil. It also looks like this area had been very ornately carved. To the bottom right of the image is a perfectly straight cylinder that looks to be a tool of some sort. You surely could surely pick it up and turn it into a pret
What Is This Object On The Moon? Anomaly? Submitted By John e
Published on Mar 18, 2015
This was sent to me by a friend of mine named John Endersby. He is an amateur astronomer who lives in a great area to catch images of the Moon and Sun with his telescope. During the lunar eclipse of 8/10/14 he caught this with his telescope and webcam.
The quality is not sharp sharp but we would love to hear your comments on what you think this huge thing is! He has not seen it since that day or in any footage since then other then the image from the UFO article that is in the video. Enjoy and please comment below!

Anyone in the north might have a chance of seeing the Northern Lights tonight.
They are caused when charged particles from the sun hit the Earth’s atmosphere.
There was a large explosion on the Sun on Sunday – sending magnetically charged particles our way.
The main trouble we will have is with cloud amounts. Clearer skies are expected in the west overnight – but even then you will need a lot of luck

Excitement builds ahead of solar eclipse
A rush-hour eclipse of the Sun brings an unmissable astronomical spectacle to the UK this week that will not be repeated for another decade.
The near-total solar eclipse is expected to bring out hundreds of sky-watchers eager to witness the phenomenon as the moon moves in front of the Sun on Friday.
ITV REPORT 17 March 2015 at 9:22am
A guide to safely watching Friday’s solar eclipse
A guide to viewing a solar eclipse safely has been issued jointly by the Royal Astronomical Society and Society for Popular Astronomy ahead of Friday’s rush-hour event.
People must never look directly at the Sun, even through sunglasses or dark material such as a bin liner or photographic negative.
Makeshift filters may also not screen out the harmful infrared radiation that can burn the retina of the eye.
Below is a list of the best safe methods of observing the magical moment when the Moon moves in front of the Sun.
USE A MIRROR:
Cover a small flat mirror with paper that has a small hole cut in it. The hole does not have to be circular but should be no wider than 5mm. Prop up or clamp the mirror so that it reflects the sunlight onto a pale screen or wall, ideally through a window.
The eclipse can be seen in the image as the Moon starts to take a “bite” out of the Sun, appearing upside down compared with its position in the sky. If clouds move across the face of the Sun, they can be seen as well.
Do not look into the mirror during the eclipse as this is just as dangerous as looking directly at the Sun.
Pinholes allow light through them and can create an image like a lens. Make a small hole in a piece of card using a compass or other sharp-pointed implement. Standing with your back to the Sun, position another white card behind the one with the pinhole so that the Sun projects an image onto it.
An alternative method uses a cereal box or something similar. Make a pinhole in one edge, point it towards the Sun, and a tiny image will be seen projected onto the inside of the box. A piece of white paper or card placed inside will make it easier to see.
Never look through the pinhole at the Sun.
BINOCULARS or A TELESCOPE:
Cover one eyepiece of a pair of binoculars with a lens cap and face the “big” end of the binoculars towards the Sun. The uncovered lens will project an image of the Sun that can be cast onto a plain card held about a foot away. Use the focus wheel to sharpen the image.
Ideally, the binoculars should be fastened to a tripod or stand. A cardboard “collar” with holes cut to fit the large lenses will shade the card on which the image is projected.
A small telescope can be used the same way.
ECLIPSE VIEWING GLASSES:
These are the only way of viewing the eclipse directly, other than through a telescope fitted with a professional filter.
Similar to 3D glasses, eclipse viewers are made from card and inlaid with a special material that cuts the Sun’s light down 100,000 times. If using a viewer, check for holes or scratches as it is only safe if undamaged.
THE COLANDER METHOD:
Take an ordinary kitchen colander and stand with your back to the Sun holding it in one hand and a piece of paper in the other.
The holes in the colander can be used to project multiple eclipse images onto the paper.
I am still awaiting permission for the next post I was going to put up, so please bear with me and just relax for a bit… I will be controversial tomorrow.
I really enjoyed those videos, so I’m going to keep going. This time though, I am just going to show meteorites and asteroids, and the calamity that happens when they hit planets. No meteorites were injured or poorly treated in the making of this presentation. You might like to get some popcorn, and a favored beverage, and just take the rest of the day off.
While you are kicking back, consider drawing up a final will, in case one of these remnants of times gone by, does actually strike here. You may have to put your final draft in a secure place. That place should also be able to withstand the probability of destruction, by these “alien rocks”. I really can’t tell you where to put it, but I’m sure you could tell me!
The planet Earth – falling asteroid. Composer Surov D.(epic dramatic music orchestra)
Great graphics and fine music, right? This next one is a re-hash of the last with narration instead of the music. I don’t believe these were quite up to par though. When an astronomical object falls to earth, it would vaporize much of the atmosphere in passing, and the shock waves would create tidal waves, and Earthquakes, that would be felt long before the asteroid hit. The heat would fry everything near its path as well.

This video isn’t nearly as impressive as the others, but it was real, and actually captured on camera.

Anyway….I hope you’ve enjoyed the end of everything we hold so dearly.
It looks like I’ve hit a technical issue with part of this post. The server got scared when it saw these, and we may never resolve these issues. If not, then I am sorry.
Mars once had an ocean with more water than the Arctic – NASA
Analysis of water residue in Martian ice caps indicates that the Red Planet was once – at least partly – blue. Billions of years ago, Mars had a body of water that held more water than Earth’s Arctic Ocean, according to a NASA study published Thursday.
Please follow the link above for a wonderful slide show I didn’t want to steal!
“Our study provides a solid estimate of how much water Mars once had, by determining how much later was lost to space,”said Geronimo Villanueva, a scientist at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center and lead author of the paper.
The study, published in Science magazine, is a result of observations and computations based on data from three telescope facilities on Earth, the instruments of which were able to distinguish the chemical signatures of two different types of water in the remnants of Mars’ atmosphere.
NASA | Measuring Mars’ Ancient Ocean
Much of the Martian ice is composed of “heavy” water, or molecules in which the regular hydrogen atoms have been replaced by an isotope known as deuterium. After analyzing the ratio of these molecules, scientists believe they have calculated the amount of water Mars once had based on known rates of water loss to space.
According to the study, only 13 percent of Mars’ original water remains in the ice caps. Scientists have estimated that 4.3 billion years ago, the planet had enough water for an ocean taking up 19 percent of its surface and reaching a depth of more than a mile (1.6 kilometers) in places. NASA videos released Thursday show the ocean covering much of Mars’ northern hemisphere.
In terms of surface area, Mars’ ocean was even larger than the Atlantic Ocean, which covers 17 percent of Earth’s surface.
NASA’s Curiosity probe has previously documented planetary features shaped by water flows and lakes. The existence of oceans on Mars suggests the planet may have been more hospitable to life than initially believed.
“With Mars losing that much water, the planet was very likely wet for a longer period of time than was previously thought, suggesting it might have been habitable for longer,” said Michael Mumma, a senior scientist at Goddard and the second author of the paper.
Private explorers may reach Mars before that, however. Mars One, a Dutch nonprofit, has been selecting candidates for a four-person, one-way mission from a pool of over 200,000 applicants over the past two years, narrowing it down to 100 finalists recently. They hope to send an unmanned advance mission to Mars by 2018.
The European Extremely Large Telescope
The world’s biggest eye on the sky
Extremely Large Telescopes are considered worldwide as one of the highest priorities in ground-based astronomy. They will vastly advance astrophysical knowledge, allowing detailed studies of subjects including planets around other stars, the first objects in the Universe, super-massive black holes, and the nature and distribution of the dark matter and dark energy which dominate the Universe.
Since the end of 2005 ESO has been working together with its user community of European astronomers and astrophysicists to define the new giant telescope needed by the middle of the next decade.
Dubbed E-ELT for European Extremely Large Telescope, this revolutionary new ground-based telescope concept will have a 39-metre main mirror and will be the largest optical/near-infrared telescope in the world: “the world’s biggest eye on the sky”.
Science with the E-ELT
The E-ELT will tackle the biggest scientific challenges of our time, and aim for a number of notable firsts, including tracking down Earth-like planets around other stars in the “habitable zones” where life could exist — one of the Holy Grails of modern observational astronomy. It will also perform “stellar archaeology” in nearby galaxies, as well as make fundamental contributions to cosmology by measuring the properties of the first stars and galaxies and probing the nature of dark matter and dark energy. On top of this astronomers are also planning for the unexpected — new and unforeseeable questions will surely arise from the new discoveries made with the E-ELT.
General purpose extremely large aperture optical/infrared telescope. Some science areas are to be high redshift galaxies, star formation, exoplanets and protoplanetary systems.

You won’t believe what these Yellowstone buffalo do!!!
Well looky here, I have been nominated for the prestigious, much coveted and fought over, LIEBSTER AWARD! I truly have to give my thanks and appreciation to Shruti of Shruti Insights, for offering me this unexpected and awkwardly wonderful opportunity. She has offered me a chance to experience a shot at the Golden Ring, the Kewpie Doll, the Final frontier of Fame and Glory in the ” Blogosphere “. I certainly would never have attempted, or volunteered for Honors such as these, on my own, so again Thank you for the inspiration, and privilege, only using my fear of shotguns or Wrathful, and thoroughly disappointed Friends, to make a man of me, and Accept this One Giant Leap For Mankind Test. Shruti, you’re the best!
So there are rules to all of this. Apparently in order to be a big shot around these parts, I have to play by THESE RULES.
Put the Liebster Award logo on your blog.
Thank and tag the blog who nominated you.
Answer their questions and come up with 10 new ones for you nominees.
Nominate 8 blogs with less than 200 followers, let them know you’ve nominated them and link them in your post.
So Shruti, with much pounding of heart, I will under take this feat, and I Thank You sincerely for your having Faith and Belief in my abilities!
These are the Ten questions I get to answer!
1.Among your blog posts, which one is your favourite?
Well thank you for asking! My favorite post was a story I wrote a couple of years ago, called ” The Waiting Game”, and It was basically a true story about circumstances I had no control over. I only embellished it a tad.
2.At what time of the day do you usually write a blog post?
That is tricky because I post whenever I am either inspired by an idea, or feel like I’m not delivering enough, or not giving people what they want.
3.What is your favourite word in your native language?
Wow, I wish you hadn’t asked me that. I don’t believe I have a singular favorite word. My favorite phrase is ” Papa, I love you! ”
4.What do you like to eat in the morning?
That is an easy one, as I don’t eat in the early day. Usually I start getting hungry about 2 or 3 in the afternoon, and I’m a guy so it really doesn’t matter what it is, as long as it can be wolfed down easily.
5.Choose one: tea, coffee, milk, hot chocolate. Why do you choose it?
Coffee with cream and sugar. But again, I drink freshly ground dark French Roast. Oh I’m sorry, you asked why? I grew up with good coffee in the S.F. bay area, and I’ve learned coffee really is the cheapest beverage, aside from water, and I don’t like water as fish do things in it.
6.Do you have a close friend? Is there one thing that you can only do with that friend?
I am married to my bestest, closest friend, and the thing we do together, I am not allowed to publicly speak about!
7.What is your favourite book and why do you like it?
That’s a hard one, but I can safely say my nearly favorite book, if I can only name one is BattleField Earth, by L. Ron Hubbard. I like that it’s long and involved, even though some of it is rather childish, I enjoy humanity taking back their home, and making a difference out in the cosmos.
8.What do you really want to learn but you haven’t got the time to do it?
Everything! I want my education to always continue. Right now I want to learn how to make my site work for me. The part about not enough time, unfortunately takes presidence over everything.
9.What do you miss from your childhood?
I miss my mommy! She died when I was 9, and I had to grow up because of that.
10.Where will you go if you just feel bored at home?
I am not at home at present. In December, I had to come down here to Reno Nevada to help take care of my family. I don’t get bored at home, as I live on 20 acres, in the mountains, and if the trailer feels cramped I just go outside.
Now it’s time to make my own nominations for the LIEBSTER AWARD, so I hope I don’t lose any friends over this!
