Space Weather
« on: March 26, 2014, 06:13:37 PM »
I occasionally get notices from Space Weather web site about what is going on for CME and so forth. Well, today got an unusual one that I wanted to share.

So read on...

 
   STRANGE BUT TRUE--AN ASTEROID WITH RINGS: Today at a press conference in Brazil, astronomers announced the surprising discovery of an asteroid with rings. The 250-km-wide asteroid, named Chariklo, is located in the outer solar system between Saturn and Uranus. In June 2013,  observers used seven different telescopes in South America to watch the asteroid pass in front of a distant star. The star winked out not just once, as would be expected for a solitary asteroid, but multiple times, revealing a pair of dense narrow rings surrounding the space rock. Here is an artist's concept of the system:
"We weren't looking for a ring and didn't think small bodies like Chariklo had them at all, so the discovery — and the amazing amount of detail we saw in the system — came as a complete surprise!" says Felipe Braga-Ribas of Observatório Nacional/MCTI in Rio de Janeiro. He planned the observing campaign and is the lead author of a March 26th paper in Nature describing the results.
According to their analysis, the rings are only 3 km and 7 km wide, respectively, with a 9 km gap between them. "I   try to imagine how it would be to stand on the surface of this icy   asteroid and stare up at a  such a  ring   system 1000 times closer than the Moon,"   adds team member Uffe Gråe Jørgensen of the Niels Bohr Institute in Denmark.
Because the rings are so narrow, they are probably confined and shepherded by    small satellites. "So, as well as the rings, it's likely that Chariklo has at least one small moon still waiting to be discovered," adds Felipe Braga Ribas


"But who is stronger, truly, I asked myself, he who continues to wound and bleed himself to please others, or he who refuses any longer to do so?"

Well, we only do the in depth reading when home, as to much to do during working hours.

Like today, pulled in the additional antenna lines, then found out that there was a revision indicating that the lines should be in a different room.

The mechanical room.

NOT

First off you have the air handler in there, a water heater, a VFD (Variable Frequency Drive), and the fire alarm panel. Then there is the concept of conditioned air for the equipment and the dust and dirt factor. Let us not forget the access to the room. Mechanical room are much lower on the food chain then a bona-fide IT room.

So although I pulled the lines in per the previous instructions there seems to be some problems with the actual final destination.

Having been in construction for so long this does not surprise me, however changing the location of radio equipment that had been determined from the start is shall we say ... not cool.

So did what we could, and now leave it in the hands of the "NSFW" to resolve the discrepancy, before I make any terminations.

I did some poking about and you are so right there was some additional great stuff

Sounds like someone had a severe case of HeadusUpArsis when they decided to put the radio equipment in the Mechanical Room! Some first-year Mechanical or Electrical Engineer grad with a BS and no experience perhaps?

Indeed the real clincher would be a VFD for the AHU, with three (3) RF lines next to each other.

Can you say interference ... with capital letters, underlined, and bright shining lights

Knew you could.

They can be put in any sort of conduit from EMT (electrical metallic conduit) to RMC (rigid metallic conduit) and yes PVC.

Typically only due to the concept of protection from physical damage, more often then not in the room where the equipment is located it is racked on cable tray to the point of termination.

That being said the next challenge would be to run said conduit to point of termination, that room is quite congested pipe wise already, then as mentioned we have a dust issue for the equipment in my rack, plus a cooling issue.

It's not exactly 'Space Weather' but it has to do with 'out there' and you might find it interesting:

http://www.mnn.com/earth-matters/space/stories/black-holes-are-portals-to-other-universes-according-to-new-quantum

Black holes may not end in a crushing singularity as previously thought, but rather open up passageways into whole other universes.



http://www.mnn.com/earth-matters/space/stories/our-universe-may-have-emerged-from-a-black-hole-in-a-higher-dimensional

The cosmos as we know it might be nothing more than a three-dimensional 'mirage' created by a collapsing star in a universe profoundly different than our own.

Maybe that's why some of us have always had this nagging feeling of "don't belong here".

Also the Perseid Meteor shower, if memory serves.

I swear I saw a meteor hit the Moon once about 3-4 years ago about this time of year. I was watching for them but looking at the Moon and all of a sudden, I saw this large 'poof' of dust fly up over the Moon at about 1-2 o'clock. It was maybe only the size of a pea from here but definitely a big poof!!!
