Gary Gilligan has put together a little video of this phenomenon, the solar wind slamming into the magnetosphere of the Earth – go to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3fGQeOac5lo and look at the comparison he makes between this feature of nature and depictions of the winged disk on Egyptian monuments.
Meanwhile, at www.jpl.nasa.gov/news/news.cfm?release=2012-129&cid=release_2012-129 the claim is being made the Herschel Space Observatory has picked up infra red images of powerful and active black holes. The argument is then made that the information from these images implies those galaxies that produce less stars as a result of high activity at the black hole margin – by flaring more fiercely than others, deemed less active, and apparently producing more stars. The paper, in Nature, suggests black holes actually suppress star formation – and eventually are capable of stopping it altogether. Supermassive black holes weighing as much as millions of suns are thought to be alive in the midst of galaxies. When gas falls into the gaping jaws of these cosmic monsters the material is accelerated and heated and released as great torrents of energy. The hypothesis is that black holes heat up and disperse galactic reservoirs of cold gas, the stuff that is thought to be used to create new stars. For an alternative view go to www.thunderbolts.info
