Just a thought, and sorry to drag the thread out more, but...

I got messages from SOHO when I tried to access the site saying, "SOHO will not be transmitting photos on (such and such dates), due to routine maintenance and upgrades to the equipment". Could be why they were down? :hmmm:

It's Fucking Nibiru Brother.... Pfft.... :top:


That is very strange though if you could blow it up and change the filtering to a negative that would be interesting.

When we cant even keep Winbloze systems runnin without getting Blue screens every 47 minutes here on earth.

Flawless logic.


Just to answer your question...
Exactly Low because they don't give any explanation. you see if they told us what it was that makes it not suspicious ..... Oh Hi Nasa We give you millions of our tax payers dollars but what do you give us a half assed space program where you can't even explain your reasonings for your malfunctions or anomalies..... so Yes A UFO or Planet.... Just as Easily Mercury, who knows what it is to be honest with you unless that camera can show us the chemical compostition of whatever it is recording it could be fucking Whoopi Goldberg for all we know....

and Windows crashes every 45 Minutes? Damn Stay off the high spamming porn sites brother. shitty enough for Windows though they aren't a limitless funded cesspool of crooked assholes that seek to Lie and Corrupt a Nation through Compartmentalization and fear tactics and information with holding. A Branch of the government basically free to do what they want... On their soapbox.

The Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (Soho) is experiencing communication problems with the Earth.
Image
The antenna it uses for high data-rate communication with the Earth is malfunctioning. Unless the problem is solved, its continuous transmission of scientific data to the Earth will suffer interruptions.

Soho is an essential component among the array of satellites and ground-based observatories that monitor the Sun's surface and atmospheric activity.

Without Soho, our knowledge of potentially hazardous magnetic storms heading towards the Earth will be severely reduced.

Ideal location

Soho was launched in 1995 and is positioned at the L1 Lagrange point between the Earth and the Sun about 1.6 million km from the Earth. L1 is a region where the spacecraft can balance gravitational forces and remain in a stable position ideal for solar monitoring.

With its 11 instruments, Soho has become a crucial part in the scientific programme to study our star. Its website contains images that are updated daily.

Its position between the Sun and the Earth makes it particularly suitable for detecting the passage of magnetic storms en route to Earth.

Such storms can occasionally disrupt satellite and radio communications. In extreme cases, astronauts on board the International Space Station can use a storm shelter area for protection from radiation.

Dr Bernhard Fleck, Soho's Project Scientist, told BBC News Online that Soho's High-Gain Antenna (Hga) can no longer move in a particular direction. A motor or gear assembly may be malfunctioning.

The Hga transmits data from Soho to the Earth at a high rate. It is vital to get the large amounts of data from Soho's many detectors.

Within days

The Hga has a beam about 14 degrees wide and is frequently moved so that it stays centred on Earth. As Soho and the Earth go around the Sun, the Hga beam's position needs such periodic adjustment.

Dr Fleck says the problem started on 4 May when Soho's monitoring computer detected that the Hga could not move properly.

Because of the Hga's wide beam, Soho is currently operating normally while the extent of the problem is evaluated.

Soho does have a Low-Gain Antenna (Lga) which does not need to be pointed in a specific direction. This will be used to monitor the spacecraft's health.
Image
As Soho progresses in its orbit, the restriction of the Hga's movement will mean some data loss from Soho, says Dr Fleck. This is because the Earth will move out of the stationary Hga beam. Its position between the Sun and the Earth makes it particularly suitable for detecting the passage of magnetic storms en route to Earth.

The Soho team estimates they will be unable to receive science data for about 18 days every three months. The first of these blackout periods will be in a few days' time.

hey thanks sav.... now we have a suitable explaination. I am glad they can send pieces of shit into orbt that can't even reason with half of their life span. with exception of ALOT THAT didn't even go anywhere... and the few that exceeded their lifetime.... good post at least now we have "some" closure.

I also read that SOHO was not able to close its swing arm/antenna in time to avert a large solar flair awhile back, and the damage could have been been caused from that incident It took a direct hit, but caught the whole event for us to see. Gotta find that date. Anyone know by chance?
