Helios Is Ours II

February 6th, 2019 Comments off

There are many, many more (almost countless) out there.

The sun’s closest stellar neighbors are three stars in the Alpha Centauri system. The two main stars are Alpha Centauri A and Alpha Centauri B, which form a binary pair. They are an average of 4.3 light-years from Earth. The third star is Proxima Centauri. It is about 4.22 light-years from Earth and is the closest star other than the sun. Please see: Helios Is Ours I.

Will disappear again? 58th again? The last rays of sunshine in three months?

Just like every other year. I know. I did promise… Digital Dread? What the hell am I supposed to do? “I am talking about you…

Come on rude boy, I don’t want to have any of…” The number of times I have listened to this track? You can not count them. But, what if is not a game? If this our reality?

Could it be so that your own relations to your own mum and dad is indeed factor? I am not saying that is a fact. On the other hand I am saying… you better search deep within your soul (yes, it is contradictory, basically I don’t believe in the concept. I am a “positivist” remember? I am a hardcore “Descartesien” like (possibly not entirely true) my mentor Professor Murdoch . I have to verify that though.

Almighty. Worshipping the Sun makes sense to me.

The other stuff? Does not. A man? Any man or woman for that mater, walking this earth and in fact being a God?

Honestly? Why would a God have a gender to begin with and if that would be the case surely it would not be male? That’s simply ridiculous if you ask me. A catastrophic misconception. The father…

Helios is pure physical power and billions of years old… Helios is older than our planet. Yet, a teenager in a cosmic sense. How about some humbleness for a change?

I think that the ancient Egyptians got that right (and no, I am not going to comment the contemporary version. Why? It is simply to depressing and moronic.).

“Pyramids are all so shiny. Egypt, Egypt.”

* In other parts of the World this text would probably cost me my life. Apart from me liking to live it is a fairly strong argument for democracy and freedom of speech. I think [sic!].

Continuous Stream

June 27th, 2020 Comments off

My physics teacher once told us in class:

– Now, we’re going to do an experiment that you (little ones) will never understand.
– By the way, I don’t either.

It is a continuous stream of particles = laser. Photons are particles yet they behave like a wave at the same time. That is a very strange thing, when you come to think about it. It is not hard to prove experimentally and nowadays anyone can buy a pocket sized laser.

A laser has an exact wavelength (it is noting like a very strong torch) in this case the wavelength is λ = 650 nm and a couple of mW. Coupled with physical effects such as diffraction, infraction and possibly a gitter.

I have one of my own. A tiny one. The supreme photon source? That would be Helios our own sun.

What Generation Are You?

NEXUS 6

– What is that?
– That is our sun, Helios viewed from afar.
– What about all the other dots in the image?
– They are either other stars or galaxies.
– What is a galaxy?
– A galaxy is a very large collection of stars (100 – 400 billion)… our galaxy is called The Milky Way or Vintergatan (Winter Street/Road, which is a much prettier name in my mind) and it is roughly 200 000 light years across.
– Both our star and galaxy are “normal”, there are many like them. They’re average Joes’ in the universe if ypu will.

Serious Speed

February 28th, 2020 Comments off

Voyager 1 (the satellite) is travelling/leaving our solar system at about 60800 km per hour, that is 16 888 meters per second or almost 17 km per second and that is… incredibly, unbelievably fast and yet it is still just 0,0056 % a fraction of the speed of light, that clocks in at: 299 792 458 meters per second (in vacuum).

Light speed is a constant in physics, Voyager 1 still got some serious speed. It is the fastest man-made object in recorded history by a large margin as well as the first ever to get beyond the heliosphere and reach interstellar space.

Calls back once a day on DSN (Deep Space Network).
Years in service? Currently:

42 years, 5 months and 27 days

And counting, a continuously working, extremely complex machine in space (remember it was launched in 1977) and close to 42 and a half years in space?!!! How many phones have you owned thus far? That is some serious, serious, seriously brilliant engineering…

Origin? JPL (Jet Propulsion Laboratory). One-Way Light Time is 20:35:35 (hh:mm:ss), as a comparison the earth’s One-Way Light Time to the sun is 00:08:13 (hh:mm:ss)…

Voyager I is: 22 233 901 100 km from the sun and moving away fast. Mission Status

Simply unbelievably beautiful piece of machinery.

15:43 Or Lights Turned Off?

November 16th, 2019 Comments off

I live in the North.

In the darkness… it is impossible to describe and it will affect you no matter what you think or your individual strength.

You need to experience it first-hand to believe it. It is the harshest climate in the World.

Even Helios, the sun itself disappears (it’s frightening!), the water from the sky and in the lakes turn to ice.

– Yes, I understand.
– You… know nothing John Snow!

Like my father used to say:

– They came in the summer and it was nice, it passed. So…, why did they stay (after first winter)?

I’ve been pondering that exact same question for quite a while now. Clock says 15:43? That would be GMT+1 or is it two?

Pictures? Natural light. No doctoring. Actually in reality is even darker – believe or not. That would be: 59.3293° N, 18.0686° E * – it is truly unbelievable.

* And the land stretches much, much further north. I’m not even situated at half distance from the end. I’m about a third the way. What they’re doing up there? I have not got the faintest idea. I can say this much don not mess with them. Sápmi, it’s their country.

Self-portrait II

November 21st, 2018 Comments off

The satellite named Hayabusa 2 is taking a picture of the Ryugu asteroid, which orbits the sun between Earth and Mars.

In the same moment its own shadow is captured – moving at great speed, in the middle of space and that is nowhere.

The contrast in this image is nothing but spectacular and anyone can clearly see that Helios is quite radiant. Stars are fierce!

The image resolution is said to be about: 6 x 6 metric meters.

★「はやぶさ2」の状況(2018.11.19の週)
「はやぶさ2」は、地球から見て太陽に非常に接近する合の期間に入りました。今週前半は、事前準備としてレンジ計測やDDORなどの軌道決定、および姿勢制御を行いました。姿勢をZ軸まわりに180度まわしたので、これまで探査機搭載のカメラONCで見えていたRyuguが上下逆さまに見えるようになりました。勤労感謝日の23日にはスラスタを吹き、探査機は合軌道に無事に投入されました。そして、レンジ計測やDDORを実施しましたが、今後、軌道投入の精度を検証し、微調整を行います。次週には地球から見た「はやぶさ2」と太陽の間の角度がより小さくなり、テレメトリがみえなくなるビーコン運用になります。
