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.

Today, we get another intriguing call from our buddy Johnathon, after we read a story of time-traveling light today that he shared in chat (we just LOVE live and interactive radio!!). Have the Elite developed time-manipulation? Does this explain the Mandela Effect and those pesky, stained bears? Did Keanu and JT actually fight in the...

So there we were, trying to figure out how our listeners were actually going to LISTEN to our show this morning (GREMLINS!), catching up with each other’s weekend…Josh mentions that he has been on the phone getting to know heretofore unknown facets of Johnathon From Jersey’s life…Walt says it would be great to get him...

Today we are setting out on “The Voyage” with its creator, author Doug Falk, who has become a great Friend of the Realm since we have gotten to know him over the last few weeks. His appearance on our Have No sphere YT show was a bit of a teaser for his book, as we...

The show title today is inspired by a quote in chat from a long-time fan of Iron Realm Media, Daz! Thanx so much, Daz, we are truly glad you found our Truth Frequency Radio show as well, you are one of the original Iron Scouts! That compliment is certainly a lot to live up to,...

STEVE is back in town for an extended tour down and around and into Northern North America, and like all famous sky phenomena that were somehow studied for decades before their discovery in 2016, STEVE expects ONLY the BEST. And the BEST is just what STEVE will get when he books a space-stay on Von...
