NOAA GOES-13 satellite becomes first ever to recover from a micrometeoroid impact

Watts Up With That?

I had been watching this, as my own weather imaging business was affected by it, and I wanted to wait to see if the fix held before writing about it. It has, and here’s the story from NOAA/NESDIS:

NOAA returns a healthy GOES-13 to normal operations as GOES-East

(June 10th) NOAA today officially returned the GOES-13 spacecraft to normal operations, after tests showed a micrometeoroid, likely hit the arm for the solar array panel on May 22, knocking the spacecraft off its delicate, geostationary balance.

Guys, I Think We Might be Getting Ionized by Quantum Dark Energy, Some of us Faster than Others

Dark Matters a Lot

The Google Earth Weather App Broke Down (it does that occasionally) so I went to the National Weather Service and Downloaded a National Reflectivity Map.  It shows active spots of radar reflectivity, which is basically water vapor “hits” in the atmosphere from what I understand.  I will let you decide if there appears to be a correlation between sinkholes/seismic and areas of high reflectivity.  These strings of dark energy, if they exist, can probably move around a bit through string interactions, I really can’t see them so I can’t say for sure.  If they do exist and are concentrated into sinkholes and they are comprised of dark/vacuum energy, then according to my research they should “pull a vacuum” in their surroundings and condense water vapor in the atmosphere (in an area of lower pressure). My initial research is telling me they decay over the period of a “few” months…

From Argonne Lab: “A Further Understanding of Superconductivity”

“A crucial ingredient of high-temperature superconductivity can be found in a class of materials that is entirely different than conventional superconductors. That discovery is the result of research by an international team of scientists working at the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science’sAdvanced Photon Source (APS).

‘There have been more than 60,000 papers published on high-temperature superconductive material since its discovery in 1986, said Jak Chakhalian, professor of physics at the University of Arkansas (UA) and a co-author of a new paper published on May 13, 2013, in Scientific Reports. ‘Unfortunately, as of today we have zero theoretical understanding of the mechanism behind this enigmatic phenomenon. In my mind, high-temperature superconductivity is the most important unsolved mystery of condensed matter physics.’

Superconductivity is a phenomenon that occurs in certain materials when cooled to extremely low…
