The Deep Space Climate Observatory satellite (aka DSCOVR) is finally in space after a successful launch today.
The initial attempt last Sunday was called off because of a failure in the Air Force’s tracking radar; the weather was too bad on the other occasions.Its purpose is to keep an eye on the sun, and hopefully give us here on Earth an early warning when solar flares take a shot at our planet.
Why is this important?
Why have NASA and other agencies spent billions on sending satellites like DSCOVR out there to keep an eye on Old Sol?
Because at some time in the future, Old Sol is going to take a shot that will destroy much of today’s technology, right down to the computer in your car, and (horror of horrors) your television set.
Worse still, such a flare – let’s say it’s somewhere in the upper X-Class range – will knock out GPS systems, which will be totally bad for planes in the air and ships at sea.
Those NASA scientists involved with the DSCOVR launch are very much aware of what the sun is likely to do. That being the case, can anyone who warns of such an event really be accused of scaremongering just because they have written in-depth reports of how such a thing could disrupt life as we know it and take decades to recover from?
They’re not scaremongers.
And nor are we.
Our responsibility, to ourselves and our loved ones, is to be sensible and to be aware of future potentials, such as solar storms, earthquakes, major storms, etc etc – because, like it or not, we are indeed living in rapidly changing times.
We should therefore be rather grateful that NASA has launched this DSCOVR project, because once it’s fully operational, it could very well provide the information people need to know they have a very short time before things fall apart.
Unfortunately, that “very short time” could be a matter of no more than 72 hours.
And then the grid goes down.
The toaster quits.
Water stops pumping.
Sewage plants stop operating.
The lights go out.
The stores shut down.
All traffic stalls on the highways.
The “just-in-time” delivery system that supermarkets rely on, simply quits – instantly.
Gas pumps quit (but so what? Cars and trucks won’t be running anyway – although some older types might still function if they don’t have computers).
Without such an advance warning, there would be terrible tragedies in the air where at any time of the day there are thousands of passenger and military planes traveling in all directions all over the globe.
Quora.com puts it this way:- “What kind of actions can we take on earth to prevent damage from a solar storm? With the launch of the Deep Space Climate Observatory Satellite there is discussion about using advanced warning of solar storms to prevent damage to systems on earth. How much warning do we expect DSCOVR to give us, and what actions would we be taking to prevent damage?”
The logical thing to do, knowing in advance what is coming our way, is to become self-sufficient somewhere well away from the city (and the coast and nuclear power plants, because earth changes do include earthquakes and tsunamis.)
Outside the lamestream media, you’ll also find those who say that certain loving ETs have done what they can to minimize the sun’s rage. But not all things can be prevented.
And although the idea that the ETs will “save” us is an attractive thought (like waiting for Jesus is an attractive thought for many) perhaps both Jesus and the ETs seriously believe that God Helps Those Who Help Themselves.
