The purpose of this Web Site is to promote general knowledge of the Universe in a simple and easy to understand style, and to help dispel many of the myths about UFOs and other phenomena. We believe millions of races of intelligent Beings inhabit the Universe, however they are NOT visiting Earth as so many seem to believe. I know you work hard every day, but I would be honored and pleased if you would take the time to read articles 2, 3, 6, and 8 below. Just read one per evening if you are pressed for time. I hope to reach as many minds as I can and bring the message of the deeper reality before my time on Planet Earth is up. Remember, we are all brothers and sisters of Planet Earth. The Asteroid threat is just one of the threats to all life on Earth and we must work together or go the way of the dinosaurs! Thank you for your time and may HE whom the winds fear light your path and guide your steps as you journey through this life!

Earth is going to have a VERY CLOSE encounter in 2029. It will be far closer than anything Earthlings have ever seen before!!!!! Apophis will come within 18,000 miles of Planet Earth on April 13th, 2029! Yes it is on Friday the 13th of that year and it will finally get the Human Race to start building a REAL Asteroid Defense! By the way we have Satellites orbiting at 22,000 miles, and it will be closer than they are to Earth! I am sure the Pentagon will be scrambling to get their Satellites out of the way! Apophis and the Planets shown are all moving in a counter clockwise direction as they orbit our Sun. Please click the Underlined Link below for all the details and pictures of real Asteroids!
In the picture displayed above the Pink areas show the position of the extremely hot gas. The Blue areas show the position of the Dark Matter in this area. These two masses have just passed thru each other in a gigantic collision! The Pink Gas was slowed by this impact, but the Blue Dark Matter was not slowed by the collision and raced ahead of the Pink Gas clouds. Dark Matter is invisible and is only detectable by us by its gravitational effects on other bodies, or in this case Gas clouds, in the same area of the Universe. Dark Matter does not interact directly with itself or the gas except thru gravity. However, the gas interacting with itself as the two masses passed thru eachother was slowed by the friction force similar to air resistance. Scientists now think most of the Universe is made of Dark Matter! For the details and multimedia data use the Link below to the Chandra X-ray Telescope Site. When you arrive click "the year 2006" on the menu at the left side of your screen. You are looking for the date "21 Aug 2006". On the far right of the second row of thumbnail images you will see the "Site of a collision between two large galaxy clusters about 3.4 billion light years from Earth". Click the small thumbnail image with the Pink Gas for a larger one, with all the details. There are many wonders of the Creators Universes yet to be discovered by Mankind! May the FORCE be with you!
PASADENA, Calif. -- NASA's Mars Odyssey orbiter put itself into a precautionary standby status early Friday, June 8, Universal Time (Thursday evening, Pacific Time), when the spacecraft detected unexpected characteristics in movement of one of its reaction wheels. The spacecraft uses three of these wheels as the primary method for adjusting and maintaining its orientation. It carries a spare reaction heel. Odyssey's flight team is in communication with the spacecraft while planning actions in response to Odyssey entering the standby status, which is called safe mode. "The spacecraft is safe, and information we've received from it indicates the problem is limited to a single reaction wheel," said Odyssey Mission Manager Chris Potts of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif. "The path forward is evaluating the health of the reaction wheel and our options for proceeding." Because the trigger for the incident was limited to a reaction wheel, the spacecraft did not need to completely reboot its computer, as it had in some earlier safing incidents during its record-setting decade of service at Mars. The flight team will be developing a recovery timeline in coming days. NASA launched the Mars Odyssey spacecraft on April 7, 2001. Odyssey arrived at Mars Oct. 24, 2001. After arrival, the spacecraft spent several months using a technique called aerobraking, which involved dipping into the Martian atmosphere to adjust its orbit. In February 2002, science operations began. Odyssey has worked at Mars longer than any other mission in history.
Take a Virtual Flight Into Mariner Valley on Planet Mars! This video created by JPL's Solar System Visualization Team uses real scientific data from Odyssey's Thermal Emission Imaging System's Infrared Camera to simulate a flight from a few hundred feet above the largest canyon in the solar system, Valles Marineris on Mars. The image data was draped over topography information from the Mars Orbiter Laser Altimeter on the Mars Global Surveyor orbiter. Every canyon wall and curve in the animation is rendered from real data from Mars except for the simulated atmosphere, dust devils, and dust storms.
Above is a piece of Earthling Space History! The Viking Lander took this picture on the surface of Mars in 1976 after digging some soil samples. The protective metallic canister on the right was cast off just before digging began. The canister is about 14 inches long. The furrows can be seen in the center of this thumbnail image. Display Mars Canister Shot for the complete picture! Viking Landers Leg can be seen in the lower right corner firmly planted on Planet Mars.
Four NASA spacecraft have been sent to explore Saturn. Pioneer 11 was the first to fly past Saturn in 1979. Voyager 1 flew past a year later, followed by its twin, Voyager 2, in 1981. The Cassini Spacecraft is the first to explore the Saturn System of Rings and Moons from Orbit. Cassini entered Orbit on June 30th 2004 and immediately began sending back intriguing images and data. The European Space Agency's Huygens Probe dove into Titan's thick atmosphere in January 2005. The sophisticated instruments on both Spacecraft are providing scientists with vital data and the best views ever of this mysterious, vast region of our solar system. Cassini - Huygens is an International collaboration between three space agencies. Seventeen nations contibuted to building the Spacecraft. The cassini Orbiter was built and managed by NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory. The Huygens Probe was built by the European Space Agency. The Italian Space Agency provided Cassini's high-gain communication antenna. More than 250 scientists worldwide are studying the data streaming back from Saturn on a daily basis. You will have hours of fun on this site it is very well done! Check out the multimedia section for great pictures and Video's! There are loads of great shots of the Rings and some of Saturn's 59 Moons so you have a lot to look forward too! Just Click the Link Below! May the Force be with you my Earthling Friends.
The New Galileo Legacy Page has all the Great Galileo Images! Including the Moons of Jupiter and the Asteroid pics that Galileo took on its way to Jupiter. Galileo is my all time favorite spacecraft and I am so Very Happy that the New Legacy site preserves all the great Jupiter pictures for generations to come! Please be sure to visit the Galileo Legacy web site, there are tons of great pictures of the moons and Jupiter you will enjoy.
Galileo End of Mission Status September 22, 2003: The Galileo spacecraft's 14-year odyssey came to an end on Sunday, September 21 when the spacecraft passed into Jupiter's shadow then disintegrated in the planet's dense atmosphere at 11:57 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time. Hundreds of former Galileo project members and their families were present at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, for a celebration to bid the spacecraft goodbye. "We learned mind-boggling things, and this mission was worth its weight in gold," said Dr.Claudia Alexander, Galileo project manager. Having traveled approximately 4.6 billion kilometers (about 2.8 billion miles), the hardy spacecraft endured more than four times the cumulative dose of harmful jovian radiation it was designed to withstand. Dr. Torrance Johnson, Galileo project scientist, said "We haven't lost a spacecraft, we've gained a steppingstone into the future of space exploration,". The Galileo spacecraft was purposely put on a collision course with Jupiter, because the onboard propellant was nearly depleted, to eliminate any chance of an unwanted impact between the spacecraft and Jupiter's moon Europa. Galileo was launched from the cargo bay of Space Shuttle Atlantis in 1989.
Solar System Sketch for Kids
The Solar System Sketch for Children has been updated to show the approximate real position of the planets NOW! In my third article I talk about our Solar System, the Planets, and their orbits. All the Planets orbit the Sun Counter Clockwise and in the same Plane with Pluto being a mild exception. Pluto's Orbit is more eliptical and actually goes inside of Neptune's orbit briefly and is a little above the Plane. These facts were not reflected in the Children's Sketch to keep things Simple. Visit this NICE Solar System Live Site where you can view the Solar System, use an Earth and Moon viewer and make custom Star Maps for any location on Earth at any date and time. The Solar System Sketch is designed to print on Letter size paper 8.5 inches by 11 inches.

The crude draft sketch below is an illustration from the book I am writing. I will of course have a professional artist do the actual drawing for the book! HA HA HA HA! The title of my book is: "The View from Atop the Maze." I plan to publish parts of the book on here for you to read and comment on. In modern terms I guess you could say its about the Inner workings of the Mind and our relationship with "The Creator of the Universes seen and unseen." Though the sketch is Very Simple it conveys a very powerful message. The Creator has millions of Races of Beings on millions of Planets throughout his Universes worshipping HIM by countless Names and under countless Faiths. The purpose of my book is not to place any Faith above any other Faith! Each Being must seek the Creator according to His or Her understanding and heritage, and ONLY the Almighty Creator has the Right to judge His Beings!!! I only point out that the Creator is not limited in any way by any Race of Beings on any Planet, in His Universes, including Earth! The Almighty Creator's Universe that we are aware of extends for 13.2 Billion Light Years in Every direction my Earthling friends and as you know one light year is 6 Trillion Miles!!!!! Just your Milky Way Galaxy contains 200 Billion Suns and many more planets that were not created just to give you something to look at in the night sky my friends! LOL. May the FORCE be with you Earthlings, and may HE whom the winds of Time and Earth fear Light your Path and Guide your Steps as you journey through this life.
