Space Station Navigation Computer Hit By Electrical Surge - Space Station Could Spiral To Earth!

When Space Station Astronauts were hooking up a new solar panel on Friday, a static charge surged through the power system from the new solar array and fried the main navigation computer.

Ultimately the station could spiral out of orbit.

The fried Space Station computer controlled the orientation of the station. Attitude control will be the determining factor if they have to abandon ship. If the station begins to roll, inertia could tear it apart. Any roll must be quickly corrected before it effects the astronauts ability to work on solving the computer part of the problem.

Oxygen and water supply have had to be jerry-rigged to by pass ruined switches in the computer.

From the BBC

Without the Russian oxygen machine running, the space station has a 56-day supply of oxygen left. "If we are in that position, we have an option to depart," Mr Suffredini (ISS programme manager for the US space agency) said.

Tonight, I saw on TV, a report the Russians were thinking of launching a rocket, carrying a replacement replica Russian computer.

If they have the time...

NASA, Friday morning statement:

Earlier in the day, International Space Station Program Manager Mike Suffredini told reporters Russian and U.S. flight controllers and engineers are focusing on efforts for recovering the computers and options to maintain attitude control until the problem is resolved.

"..options to maintain attitude control..."

I wonder if they should drop trying to fix the computer, and jerry-rig some way to fire the stabilizers.

The get away vehicle is still in orbit with the station, it's scheduled to be there for three more days. NASA's thinking on how to use the shuttles rockets to stabilize the station as well.

Can they take everyone off the station, on one shuttle flight?

Will they have to?

Exciting stuff!

Cosmologys' Standard Model In Crisis: A Solution Could Be 'Propagating Bubbles'

UPDATED July 22, '07 4:44 AM.

A 'bubble' or 'onion' theory of cosmology.

A continuously expanding series of bubbles (a propagating bubble), each in succession; related to the next, and the one before by a mathematical function - thus creating a linear mathematical quality
(a Higgs field) related to all corresponding points of the wave propagation. IE. sun light - but particular in all wave lengths.

Thus, a quality is discernible in the logic that embodies energy, time, and matter, in the form of a wave that is omnipresent - and that ties quantum functions to galactic scale observations.

These interactions create new fields that will eventually cause the collapse of the universe. Or, in other words, the relationships between all the meshing 'propagating bubbles', is the depository of the missing energy in the standard model.

  • The Pioneer anomaly is a result of the meshing of the solar propagating bubble and the milky ways' galactic one.
  • The irreconcilable measurements we're getting from red shift observations in deep space, are the result of the effects of the meshing of the propagating bubble on some wavelengths, and differently on others.

The theory unifies all forces by conditioning everything by their unique quantum functions as qualities of the propagating field.

Gravity in this model is effected over distance by these forces, thus gravity it is not instantaneous everywhere. We need to uncover a function that describes this to get a true picture of deep space.

Right now it's like we suffer a collective astigmatism. A starting point to understanding the properties that will form the prescription (a mathematical function), is in the interaction of earth, and near earth, fields - like the interface of the oceans and the atmosphere, or the solar wind and the magnetosphere - the fields we know best. We begin by mapping the medium of space, until we can see clearly, that we can then begin to map space itself.

That's it. That's my take.

The reading I did today, gave me the term 'propagating waves' or 'scalar waves' which allowed me to visualize the thing.

Thanks to 'RB' for the 'scalar' link.

Figure this stuff out, and we get 'hover cars'.
