found someone upgrading their roof solar panels, cash talks and walks.
2 are on the station bank, and the other 2 on the house bank. nice solid 8amps at 45volts or so thru the MPPT controllers for each pair. not bad for “used”….
deployed the solar to power the DC3-reloaded for the pagan bunny burn 2016. good test of the setup, find things like shorter bolts are needed, weatherproof the quick-connects, the usual stuffs. some videos up on the tubez. fire pattern and lightning pattern and a close up of the crystal in magnetic suspension emitting polarized chernykov glow.
a hangglider steers by weight shift. to over-simplify, the pilot moves the body weight in relation to the balance point of the wing, inducing a lateral force, that turns the craft. this soon to be launched NASA NEA Scout probe is powered by a solar sail that catches the sun’s photons. in order to steer a course other than away from the sun, the craft will move its center of gravity in relation to the sail very similar to hangglider weight shift. because, physics.
just to summarize, it’s when the sun does farts in our direction, like this M-class,
there is some sort of “ringing” that can put the odds even for tectonic bumps. here’s south pacific island seismo starts to get “choppy” (i know, scientific terms) that my theory says precedes earthquakes. not all farts make eq. not all eq are fart triggered. but the BIG ones (2004 xmas and 2009 fukushima specifically) tend to have large solar components.
now im not saying there is going to be a big (7+) quake soon, but the odds are getting even.
for a dollar i’ll tell you where and when i think the trigger happens.
hint, this page is where i pull the seismo’s from,
whenever the sun farts, or at least when i hear about it, i go look at seismograms. when i see things like this, a building, or longer period harmonics, i check my emergency supplies: water, food, go-bag.
what do you do when you smell a sun fart?
here’s nice page with worldwide seismo’s in near-realtime.
then i think about trying to get up to the arctic circle and watch the aurora. northern lights are really greasy sun farts, golden spoonfull of particles in the holy wind. looks like we’re getting it in our general direction….
which comes from here.
see the daylight line? called the “greyline”, thats where the above seismo is at at this moment of the aurora forecast. my sunfart->quake theory has a lot of greyline dynamics in it. stay tuned for formulae.
aurora seen all over Mars, not just the poles, when 2015 CME (Coronal Mass Ejection) hit and NASA robots smelled it. low mag field calculations postdict Mars lost it’s atmosphere due to Sun Farts. because, science.
So, sometimes the sun farts in our general direction. Ice Core evidence shows that we have no idea how strong those farts can be, but now some idea how strong they have been in the past. “3 orders of magnitude” seems to be a starting point.
