UPDATE: Air France Flight 447 Down
Is the South Atlantic Anomaly to blame? I believe that it is a real possibility. Our jets today are high tech and the more high tech the more easily it can be affected by radiation. What is the the South Atlantic Anomaly, you say? It is a region in the South Atlantic where our magnetosphere is fading rapidly. The magnetosphere is the magnetic flow around the planet that protects us from head on solar radiation. We all know what radiation can do to electronic equipment, a nuclear device sends out an EMP, Electronic Magnetic Pulse and it can cause all electronic equipment to fail.
The SAA is not only growing but coming closer to earth. It is 3,000,000 miles square. There is great concern among the scientific community about how rapidly our magnetic field is disappearing. This could be one answer as to why Flight 447 went down. This is some real scary stuff that has dire implications to our life on earth. It will kill us eventually, there is no doubt about it. The first place that we will feel its effects are in the air. So this theory is sound but of course not a definite reason for flight 447 went down.
According to NASA astronauts have seen flashes in the cockpits even when their eyes were closed. These were most likely high powered radioactive particles of solar radiation in the Van Allen Belt. NASA also states that 36 astronauts have suffered cataracts within 5 years after these experiences. Coincidence? I do not think so . . .
In the last 20 million years our magnetic shift North becomes South and South becomes North has happened 18,000 times. The last time this happened was 780,000 years ago and with these shifts weakend magnetic fields have occured. We are over due for one of these shifts.
What are your thoughts?
