Gamma Ray Bursts — Important source of Energy

I received the following interesting info from a source:

What are the actual sources of GBR's (Gamma Ray Bursts)? The short answer: An unnatural occurring phenomena providing power to (large) ships, civilizations, and outposts. How it occurs, is collected and stored has become a TOP priority.

Some background according to a recent article on the NASA website:

"This breakthrough observation gives us the first measurement of magnetic fields in the afterglow of a GRB," said Swift lead scientist Neil Gehrels, Swift lead scientist at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md.

Gamma Ray Bursts form when the core of a massive star collapses or when two neutron stars merge together. The resulting explosions are the brightest events in the universe and vastly outshine entire galaxies containing hundreds of billions of stars. NASA’s Swift satellite sees about 100 of these events each year, triggering ground-based follow-up by observations across the globe.

Polarization is one of the least-observed properties in astronomy. This finding opens the door to understanding the role of magnetic fields in some of the most powerful events in the universe.

"These very interesting observations raise the possibility that gamma-ray bursts are not fireballs as usually presumed but are powered and collimated by an organized electromagnetic field," said Roger Blandford, Director of the Kavli Institute of Particle Astrophysics and Cosmology at Stanford University, California, commenting on the result's importance. "It will be very interesting to see if there are similarities in observations of other kinds of cosmic jets."

Sign the Petition Protest Genetically Modified Crops

I received this urgent message from Miriam Delicado urging us to act to make sure this petition gets out to be signed by people protesting Monsanto and the use of genetically modified crops in Europe. Please click the link and stop the destruction of our food supply! Please copy and post everywhere on the net!!!

Thank you.
