Walt always says “You can’t write this shit…so THEY do.” But today we have an EXTRA special chunk-o-caca! Instead of me making fun of their ridiculous Mad Libs approach to Science writing, I’ll just put this here:

“The Sun’s poles remain mysterious, but scientists are poring over past imaging data to construct artificial images of what they look like.”

“Thanks to the clever work of scientists from the European Space Agency (ESA), we now know that the Sun’s north pole looks like.

The Earth’s poles are no longer uncharted and mysterious, but the Sun’s poles are another matter entirely. The only satellite mission to fly over the solar poles—Ulysses in the mid-90s—didn’t have any imaging instruments.

The newly created image, shared by the ESA on Monday, is only an approximation of the Sun’s north pole, but it’s no less fascinating than the real thing. Due to a lack of imaging data from the solar poles (most satellite missions focus on observing lower latitudes), scientists have been creating artificial images by extrapolating from imaging data collected by the Proba-2 satellite. It’s a painstaking process, and the striking image shared on Monday is the result of many months of hard work and dozens of iterations. Here’s a bigger view: (See pic above.)

Knowledge about the solar poles is crucial to probing several open areas of study regarding the Sun, such as coronal holes, areas of the plasmic aura surrounding the Sun that are colder, darker, and have less density than the rest of the corona.

The ESA’s artificial images of the Sun’s poles will continue to improve, but we’ll have to wait for the launch of the ESA’s 2020 Solar Orbiter mission to get first-hand imaging data of the Sun’s geographic extremes.”

–So yeah.

I really liked Yakov…for about 5 minutes! However, his catchphrase is so appropriate, and not just for the Russian space program!! As we are bilked out of 50 MILLION DOLLARS PER DAY by a bunch of lying NASAholes, given cartoons and trapeze artists in return for our precious Life Credits, it certainly can be said...

Mmmm MM! The breakfast of champeens, truly!! Thanx to our friend Freeenergy13 (@Freeenergy13) for the show title idea today!! We LOVE our listeners and their amazing ways of looking at things just a bit askew! We have covered SO many incredibly inane fake space stories in our time here, the lettuce pile is mountainous and...

We have been told to boldly go where no one has gone a long time ago before they could hear you scream. We have sifted, shmeared, sprinkled salad dressing liberally, trying hard to make this endless stream of diarrhetic pablum that IS Space Lettuce edible is some small way. At some point, the brain melts,...

Today, we discuss the NEW glaring inconsistencies with the upcoming 2024 North American Eclipse. But first, a few of their “facts”: –“The total solar eclipse on April 8, 2024, will be longer, darker, and seen by many millions more people. Over four minutes of totality will be observable from under a 100-mile wide path of...

We roll into our weekend rocking and reeling from a wild raucous ride with our pal Rockin’ Rio from “Into The Microcosm” right here on TFR. To say we cover a LOT of topics is putting it oh so mildly, but we do dig into the secrets of the Lie Boxes and all the hidden...

No, really! Ask any ass-troll-naught!! From the stories we have seen, going back to at least 2004, all ass-troll-naughts climb into their high-dollar ballon suits, seal it up tight so as to keep from DYING IN SPACE and all…but once outside the safety of their thin-shelled life-giving tube-of-air…what they hey?…let’s just take a sniff, shall...
