Winston Churchill Distinguished Alumni Nomination Form 2022

Dear Churchill Grads of 1974, 1975, 1976

NOTE: Deadline is October 31st

A form has been released requesting the nomination of a Churchill alumnus who has contributed to society as a whole. In the areas of involvement sought, I am requesting your supportive nomination of my contribution in the discipline of scientific research.

My specific area in which I have been acknowledged is related to what has become a common term called “Space Weather”. In just the last two decades a better understanding of what happens in our solar system, specifically the Sun, has a direct causal effect on our home Earth. I am currently in process of having the term “space weather” associated with my name. For now, Wikipedia makes the following statement: “The term space weather was first used in the 1950s and came into common usage in the 1990s.” We are hoping soon for this to be further acknowledged as Battros in the 1990’s.

As a direct correlation to my in-depth interviews with scientists from NASA, NOAA, US Naval Observatory, and the European Space Agency,  I stumble across an area we now call Space Weather. In short, I quickly discovered as a result of my research a gaping hole between NASA’s study of solar events in space, and NOAA’s study of Earth’s oceans and atmosphere. Until my published papers, both NASA and NOAA described their discoveries in terms of” Climate”, which is measured in terms of decades, centuries, and millennia. In my research it came down to the left-hand was not communicating with the right-hand. Yes, in several functioning modems it really did come down to lack of communication. In my published papers, the term of space “weather” took hold. Weather being described in measures of hours, days and weeks.

I founded Earth Changes TV in 1995 which was a “live” television show where I would interview the many distinguished scientists from several scientific bodies and universities. Later in 2003, I switched over to a “live” radio broadcast now under the umbrella of Earth Changes Media. In 2005, I published my first book titled Solar Rain: The Earth Changes Have Begun. In 2007 my second book was published to address what has become known as global warming.

After a period of a few years time off, I focused with what would be a natural progression of my studies. What are the driving factors of our Sun’s cycles? This research takes us outside our solar system seeking patterns and cycles encompassing vast periods of time. My name for this study is “Science Of Cycles”.

Here are a few of my endorsements:

Dr. Ernest Hildner, Director NOAA Space Weather Center

Dr. Pål Brekke, Deputy Director of SOHO project- European Space Agency

Dr. Tom Van Flandern, former US Naval Observatory Chief of Celestial Mechanics

Dr. Ronald van der Linden, Director of Solar Physics Depart. of the Royal Observatory

Dr. Stefaan Poedts: Lead Scientist University of Leuven Center for Plasma Astrophysics

Spacecraft Makes Progress on Solar Heating Mystery

The Sun’s surface temperature is around six thousand degrees kelvin, but the solar atmosphere—the corona and the solar wind—can reach a million degrees kelvin, a long-standing mystery in solar physics. Now, with data from the Parker Solar Probe, researchers have found evidence supporting a partial explanation for this mystery: magnetic waves driven by subsurface turbulence can impart energy to ions in these regions.

The exact mechanism of heating has been debated for decades, but the story appears to start with turbulent flow in the Sun’s convection zone, the outermost layer below the surface. In fluid dynamics, turbulence causes heating through a process known as turbulent energy cascade, where large eddies are converted into progressively smaller eddies. The energy in the smallest eddies is converted into heat through collisions between molecules.

Solar physicists think that a similar turbulent cascade happens in the Sun. Heat-driven turbulence below the surface disturbs the solar magnetic-field lines that extend into the corona, causing waves to propagate like the vibrations of a plucked guitar string. These long-wavelength, low-frequency magnetic waves travel into the corona and the solar wind, generating disordered waves at progressively shorter wavelengths. But the plasma of charged particles that constitutes the solar corona is not dense enough for collisions between particles to generate enough heat to explain the coronal temperature. Instead, something more exotic must be occurring.

One idea, called cyclotron resonant heating, is that the turbulent cascade generates waves that are short enough to be in resonance with the motion of ions in the corona. This resonance allows these waves to pump energy into the ions’ cyclotron motion—helical trajectories that spiral around magnetic-field lines. This energy boost heats the corona and the solar wind, which consists of particles that follow magnetic-field lines extending outward from the corona. There are several other proposed heating mechanisms, and it’s likely that more than one of them is in effect.

BREAKING NEWS: NASA to Deflect Asteroid in Test of Earth’s Defense – “LIVE”

NASA will on Monday attempt a feat humanity has never before accomplished: deliberately smacking a spacecraft into an asteroid to slightly deflect its orbit, in a key test of our ability to stop cosmic objects from devastating life on Earth.

If all goes to plan, impact between the car-sized spacecraft, and the 530-foot (160 meters, or two Statues of Liberty) asteroid should take place at 7:14 pm Eastern Time (2314 GMT), viewable on a NASA livestream.


NEW: Boundary of Heliosphere Mapped for First Time

For the first time, the boundary of the heliosphere has been mapped, giving scientists a better understanding of how solar and interstellar winds interact.

Dan Reisenfeld, a scientist at Los Alamos National Laboratory and lead author on the paper, said; “Physics models have theorized this boundary for years, but this is the first time we’ve actually been able to measure it and make a three-dimensional map of it.” Reisenfeld’s paper was published in the Astrophysical Journal today.

The heliosphere is the vast, bubble-like region of space created by the influence of our Sun and extends into interstellar space. The two major components to determining its edge are the heliospheric magnetic field and the solar wind from the Sun.

Three major sections from the beginning of the heliosphere to its edge are the termination shock, the heliosheath, and the heliopause. A type of particle called an energetic neutral atom (ENA) has also been observed to have been produced from its edges.

They did this by using IBEX satellite’s measurement of energetic neutral atoms (ENAs) that result from collisions between solar wind particles and those from the interstellar wind. The intensity of that signal depends on the intensity of the solar wind that strikes the heliosheath. When a wave hits the sheath, the ENA count goes up and IBEX can detect it.

ALMA Discovered a Titanic Galactic Wind

Researchers using the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) discovered a titanic galactic wind driven by a supermassive black hole 13.1 billion years ago. This is the earliest example yet observed of such a wind to date and is a telltale sign that huge black holes have a profound effect on the growth of galaxies from the very early history of the universe.

At the center of many large galaxies hides a supermassive black hole that is millions to billions of times more massive than the Sun. Interestingly, the mass of the black hole is roughly proportional to the mass of the central region (bulge) of the galaxy in the nearby universe. At first glance, this may seem obvious, but it is actually very strange.

The reason is that the sizes of galaxies and black holes differ by about 10 orders of magnitude. Based on this proportional relationship between the masses of two objects that are so different in size, astronomers believe that galaxies and black holes grew and evolved together (coevolution) through some kind of physical interaction.

Solar Eclipse and Earth Changing Events

Research suggests the sudden temperature fluctuation during the period of a solar eclipse can set in motion a chain of events from Earth’s atmosphere to her ocean bottoms. As the moon cast its shadow along the eclipse path, it presents a sudden and rapid shift in jet stream temperature which in-turn has a direct affect on ocean currents.

Although temperature flux may be subtle, if tectonics are at their tipping point, it would not take much to set them off. Additionally, the rapid temperature change can cause an expansion and contraction of Earth’s lithosphere, even if ever so slight, can set off a chain reaction of tectonic slippage resulting in significant earthquakes and volcanic activity.

Remember, the majority of volcanoes are submarine (ocean bottom); hence the rapid shift in ocean temperatures is also prone to set off a rippling effect which is often unpredictable due to the spider webbing tentacles which connect a system of mantle plumes and volcanoes.

Watch for significant events to occur over the next ten days. Pay special attention to geographical areas along the path of June 10th 2021 annular eclipse related to Earth Changing Events. (see graphic above)
