(Science Daily)   How did a third radiation belt appear in the Earth's upper atmosphere and then suddenly disappear? I'm not saying it was aliens   (sciencedaily.com) divider line 29

By performing a "quantitative treatment of the scattering of relativistic electrons by electromagnetic whistler-mode waves inside the dense plasmasphere," the investigators were able to account for the "distinctively slow decay of the injected relativistic electron flux" and demonstrate why this unusual third radiation belt is observed only at energies above 2 mega-electron-volts.

OK now you're just f*cking with me.

Well, it's gone now

/no use haarping on it

Old Doc Van Allan was a pretty cool guy. Very unassuming and approachable.

I'm sure it has something to do with Obama... or Bush!  yeah, it's Bush's fault!

Will someone please calibrate the flux capacitor? Thank you.

Translation for you:  "We measured how really, really fast electrons scattered off the radiation belts by listening to very low frequency radio waves created by them as the slam into the inner magnetosphere," and "It turns out that the math for it all already predicted this possibility at specific energy levels."

Did they try reversing the polarity?

Arkanaut: Did they try reversing the polarity?


Of the phase inducers of course.

So glad LeVar Burton got paid for some of the idiotic lines they gave him. He really deserved better.

Arkanaut: Did they try reversing the polarity?


No, they just rerouted main power through the deflector dish, then accidentally the whole Earth.

Well, shiat.

Someone's been venting plasma. I can smell it.

So... HAARP?

You see, the magnetic feild goes fablibity with the flubbity  in the fluxn and the flaxen and then you get jello pudding pops.

Global warming, clearly.

The only thing we can be sure of is that evil humans (in the guise of greedy corporations) caused this disaster, and we have to act NOW to prevent the end of the Earth as we know it.  This will involve increased taxes, and money sent to the third world, but we can't solve problems of this magnitude without some suffering.  It's time America paid for its consumption of goods and services.

/ This is how this actually works...   See:  Global Cooling, Global Warming, Ozone Layer Depletion....

so close!

Old Doc Van Allan was a pretty cool guy. Eh Very unassuming an approachable and doesn't afraid on anything.

did some one say radiation belts?

/hot like radiation
//better not be obscure

The belt disappeared because I had to use it to get my flux capacitor up to 1.21 gigawatts.

That was Cold Cast entering orbit at Mach 7. If you had super hearing, you would have heard the "puh."

Maybe it broke because the Earth is getting fat.
 
2013-06-21 02:20:02 AM  
Duh. It's the Pleiadians suffusing Earth with positive energy vibrations so that we can become 4.2 dimensional beings.

This is an OUTRAGE!    I have my Navy papers right he....  whoops.
