Going Beyond New Age Beliefs — They Fly Blog

November 4, 2018

Leaving behind the Age of Beliefs for the Age of Truth and Knowledge A recent article speaks about the growing interest in what’s called “New Age beliefs.” While this may be seen by some as an improvement over traditional religions, substituting one set of beliefs for another still leaves one far from knowing the…truth. We are leaving…

Radioactive strontium from Fracking found in freshwater mussels

October 22, 2018

Elevated concentrations of strontium, an element associated with oil and gas wastewaters, have accumulated in the shells of freshwater mussels downstream from fracking wastewater disposal sites, according to researchers from Penn State and Union College.

“Freshwater mussels filter water and when they grow a hard shell, the shell material records some of the water quality with time,” said Nathaniel Warner, assistant professor of environmental engineering at Penn State. “Like tree rings, you can count back the seasons and the years in their shell and get a good idea of the quality and chemical composition of the water during specific periods of time.”

In 2011, it was discovered that despite treatment, water and sediment downstream from fracking wastewater disposal sites still contained fracking chemicals and had become radioactive. In turn, drinking water was contaminated and aquatic life, such as the freshwater mussel, was dying. In response, Pennsylvania requested that wastewater treatment plants not treat and release water from unconventional oil and gas drilling, such as the Marcellus shale. As a result, the industry turned to recycling most of its wastewater. However, researchers are still uncovering the long-lasting effects, especially during the three-year boom between 2008 and 2011, when more than 2.9 billion liters of wastewater were released into Pennsylvania’s waterways.

“Freshwater pollution is a major concern for both ecological and human health,” said David Gillikin, professor of geology at Union College and co-author on the study. “Developing ways to retroactively document this pollution is important to shed light on what’s happening in our streams.”

Kepler K2 19 prepares to send home data

October 1, 2018

UPDATE: Just 3 days after Kepler K2 sent home the data from Campaign 19, it finally ran out of fuel on October 19th, 2018.  Thousands of more exoplanet candidates have yet to be confirmed.

Kepler’s latest observing campaign, K2 Campaign 19, started on August 29 after the spacecraft’s configuration had been modified in order to adapt to a change in thruster performance. Since then, the spacecraft has been collecting data for the Campaign’s 33,000 targets, including the well-known TRAPPIST-1 and GJ9827 planet systems.

During a recent Deep Space Network (DSN) contact, the Kepler team received data showing that the spacecraft’s ability to point precisely has degraded. In order to preserve the high-value science data collected so far, the Kepler team ended Campaign 19 on September 26 and placed the spacecraft in its stable, no-fuel-use “nap mode”.

During Kepler’s allotted DSN time, scheduled to begin October 10, the Kepler team will transmit the science data home. Due to uncertainties about the remaining available fuel, there is no guarantee that we will be able to download the science data. If successful the Kepler team will attempt to start K2 Campaign 20 with the remaining fuel. A set of Frequently Asked Questions related to this development is available on our website.

Green candidate claims Pleiadian heritage, gets Drudge top headline

August 8, 2018

The green party candidate in the Ohio primary election only got about 1000 votes, but it was enough to keep the Democratic candidate from winning.  Because of this, DrudgeReport made their top headline “Green Party Space Alien Thwarts Dems”.

The man claims to be a descendant of extraterrestrials from the Pleiades in the Taurus constellation.  What he is referring to is the Plejarens, who have been visiting us for more than 10,000 years, and are still visiting Billy Meier today, along with other guests from their federation.  This is huge soft disclosure to millions of people, revealing (in a joking manner) the reality that we are descendants of human E.T.s from Lyra/Vega and Sirius.

We Are Killing Bees with Pesticides

February 28, 2018

By Kate Kelland

LONDON (Reuters) – Wild bees and honeybees are put at risk by three pesticides from a group known as neonicotinoids, Europe’s food safety watchdog said on Wednesday, confirming previous concerns that prompted an EU-wide ban on use of the chemicals.

The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) report, which covered wild bees and honeybees and included a systematic review of scientific evidence published since EFSA’s 2013 evaluation, is seen as crucial to whether the European moratorium on neonicotinoid use remains in place.

The updated risk assessment found variations due to factors such as species of bee, exposure and specific pesticide, “but overall the risk to the three types of bees we have assessed is confirmed,” said Jose Tarazona, head of EFSA’s pesticides unit.

The European Union has since 2014 had a moratorium on use of neonicotinoids – made and sold by various companies including Bayer and Syngenta – after lab research pointed to potential risks for bees, which are crucial for pollinating crops.

EU nations will discuss a European Commission proposal to ban three neonicotinoids next month in the Plant Animal Food and Feed Standing Committee.

“This is strengthening the scientific basis for the Commission’s proposal to ban outdoor use of the three neonicotinoids,” a spokeswoman for the EU executive said.

Kepler and K2 still producing

January 23, 2018

Kepler is still finding new exoplanets, even with TESS due to launch this March.  Below are the numbered shots of the sky analyzed for 80 day intervals.  The Kepler space telescope is currently looking at the patch of space numbered 16.

Go Kepler!

“We present the detection of three super-Earths transiting the cool star LP415-17, monitored by K2 mission in its 13th campaign,” the researchers wrote in the paper.

Located some 267 light years away from the Earth, LP415-17 is a star of spectral type K with a radius of about 0.58 and approximately 35 less massive than our sun. It has an effective temperature of 4,258 K and was therefore classified as a cool dwarf.

Alonso’s team identified a transit signal in the light curve of LP415-17. The planetary nature of this signal was later confirmed by follow-up observations with the WIYN 3.5-Meter Telescope at Kitt Peak National Observatory in Arizona.

According to the study, LP415-17 b, with a radius of about 1.8 Earth radii, is the smallest planet of the newly discovered trio. It has a mass of 4.7 Earth masses and orbits its parent star every 6.34 days at a distance of 0.056 AU from the host. The planet has an equilibrium temperature of 708 K.

LP415-17 c is the largest and most massive planet in the system – it is 6.5 times as massive as the Earth and has a radius of approximately 2.6 Earth radii. At a distance of nearly 0.1 AU from the host, it has an equilibrium temperature of 583 K and an orbital period of 13.85 days.

LP415-17 d has a radius of 1.9 Earth radii and is almost five times as massive as our planet. The exoworld has a semi-major axis of about 0.19 AU and it takes it 40.7 days to fully orbit its host star. The planet’s equilibrium temperature is 381 K.
