ECTV/Breaking News - Falling Space Debris, High Sunspots and X-Class Flares
- Falling Space Debris, High Sunspots and X-Class Flares...01/30/02
by Mitch Battros (ECTV)
NASA just issued an alert for falling space debris. The space agency warned residents of a vast swath of Earth from South Florida to Australia that heavy chunks of a dying, 3 1/2-ton satellite could strike the region tonight or Thursday.
Engineers said that as many as nine pieces of debris weighing up to 100 pounds each could survive as NASA's Extreme Ultraviolet Explorer plunges through the atmosphere. The space junk could hit an area bordered by Orlando on the north and Brisbane, Australia, on the south.
That includes all of South Florida, as well as Mexico City, Caracas and Bogotá. The debris field could stretch over 625 miles, but NASA said the odds favored impact in unpopulated areas.
``The probability of the few EUVE surviving pieces falling into a populated area and hurting someone is very small,'' said
Ronald Mahmot, a NASA project manager. ``It is more likely that the small pieces will fall into the ocean or fall harmlessly to the ground.''
Sunspot Count and Solar Flares
The current sunspot count is at 214. This is a count of 64 over NASA's predicted 'apex' of 150. Not only is it over one third higher than predicted, it comes one full year after the reported maximum for 'Cycle 23' has come and supposedly gone.
As a result of such a high sunspot count, NASA is expecting one or more X-Class and M-Class flares to erupt any minute. To make matters worse, NASA makes the following statement: "An explosion from the active region would likely be Earth-directed as it crosses the center of the Sun today and tomorrow.

It seems ECTV's own "Nostrabobus" may have influenced a well storm of caution regarding the 2002 Winter Olympics. I am receiving notices daily of increased security measures surrounding the upcoming games in Salt Lake City. Here is just one article magnifying our governments grave concern, and rightly so.
