Satellite News

Satellites are used for a large number of purposes. Common types include military (spy) and civilian Earth observation satellites, communication satellites, navigation satellites, weather satellites, and research satellites.

Scientific Experts from around the world are predicting with reasons that three years from now, all life on Earth could well come to an end. Some are saying it’ll be humans that would set it off. Others believe that a natural phenomenon will be the cause. And the religious folks are saying it’ll be God himself who would press the stop button. The following are some likely arguments as to why the world would end by the year 2012.

Sun stormsSolar experts from around the world monitoring the sun have made a startling discovery. Our sun is in a bit of conflict. The energy output of the sun is, like most things in nature, cyclic and it’s supposed to be in the middle of a period of relative stability. This activity is predicted to get worse and calculations suggest it’ll reach its deadly peak sometime in 2012.

The atom smasher
Scientists in Europe have been constructing the world’s largest particle accelerator. Basically, it’s a 27 km tunnel designed to smash atoms together to find out what makes the universe tick. So when this machine is fired up for its first serious experiment in 2012, the world could be crushed into a super-dense blob the size of a basketball.

Super volcano
Yellowstone National Park in United States is famous for its thermal springs and old authentic geyser. The reason for this is simple -- it’s sitting on top of the world’s biggest volcano and geological experts are beginning to get nervous sweats. The Yellowstone volcano has a pattern of erupting every 650,000 years. The pressure under the Yellowstone is building steadily, and geologists have set 2012 as a likely date for the big bang.

The physicists
Physicists at Berkely Academy have been crunching the numbers. Even worse, they’re claiming that their calculations prove that we’re all going to die, very soon. They are also saying that their prediction comes with a certainty of 99 per cent; and 2012 just happens to be the best guess as to when it occurs.

Earth’s magnetic field
We all know that the Earth is surrounded by a magnetic field that shields us from most of the sun’s radiation. Scientists have noted that the poles are drifting apart roughly 20-30 kms each year, much faster than ever before, which points to a pole-shift being right around the corner. The result is enough UV outdoors to crisp your skin in seconds, killing everything it touches.
