N.a.s.a To Study Highest Clouds On Earth
http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/sci/tech/6594771.stm <<

Quote:Mission aims at highest clouds
The US space agency (Nasa) has launched a mission to study the highest clouds on Earth - noctilucent clouds. These silvery-blue structures appear as thin bands in twilight skies, forming some 80km (50miles) above the surface.

Recent records suggest they have become brighter, more frequent and are being seen at lower latitudes than usual. The Aeronomy of Ice in the Mesosphere (AIM) spacecraft was launched at 1326 PDT (2026 GMT) on Wednesday on a Pegasus XL rocket. The booster was first carried to an altitude of 11.9km (39,000ft) by a Stargazer L-1011 carrier aircraft before being released to make its way into space.

Altered factors

To form, noctilucent clouds need cold temperatures, the presence of water vapour, and small dust particles around which the water can condense and freeze out to create ice crystals. Scientists cannot say for sure but they suspect human activity may be altering the balance of these conditions in the mesosphere.

Quote:The changes in frequency and brightness have been observed over the past 20 years
They are normally apparent in summer at about 50-65 degrees north and south
They have been seen recently as low as 40 degrees North
One study has implicated water in space shuttle exhaust plumes as a contributor

It is known, for example, that increased concentrations of carbon dioxide, from fossil fuel burning, are cooling the highest reaches of the Earth's atmosphere. But there may be other, more influential factors at play which could explain why these clouds have become brighter, increased in frequency and have started to appear at latitudes down to 40 degrees. "The occurrence of these clouds at the edge of space and what causes them to vary is not understood," said AIM principal investigator James Russell.

"One theory is that the cloud particles grow on 'seeds' of meteoric dust or dust lofted up from below. AIM will provide the comprehensive data needed to test current theories for cloud formation or develop new ones, and allow researchers to build tools to predict how they will change in the future."

Dust count

The Aim spacecraft carries three instruments, and will look through and over the clouds. One instrument is essentially a suite of four cameras that will provide multiple, panoramic views of the poles and clouds. Another, called the Solar Occultation for Ice Experiment (Sofie), will measure cloud particles, temperature and atmospheric gases involved in forming the clouds. The third instrument, called the Cosmic Dust Experiment, records the amount of space dust that drifts into the atmosphere from the cosmos.

Noctilucent clouds were first identified in 1885 by the British amateur astronomer Robert Leslie. The Nasa mission is run out of Hampton University, Virginia; and has international partners, including the British Antarctic Survey.

U.S. NAVY TO CONDUCT MASSIVE ATMOSPHERIC EXPERIMENTAL TESTS
By Rosalind Peterson
September 9, 2009
NewsWithViews.com

Starting as early as today, September 15, 2009

An article in Space.com (1) titled, “NASA Rocket to Create Clouds Tuesday” by Clara Moskowits, Staff Writer – September 14, 2009, was unexpectedly forwarded to me today.

According to the article: “…A rocket experiment set to launch Tuesday aims to create artificial clouds at the outermost layers of Earth's atmosphere. The project, called the Charged Aerosol Release Experiment (CARE)…"This is really essentially at the boundary of space," said Wayne Scales, a scientist at Virginia Tech who will…study the physics of the artificial dust cloud as it's released…CARE is slated to launch Tuesday between 7:30 and 7:57 p.m. EDT (2330 and 2357 GMT) from NASA's Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia….”

“…CARE will release its (aluminum oxide) (2), dust particles a bit higher than that, then let them settle back down to a lower altitude.”What the CARE experiment hopes to do is to create an artificial dust layer,” Professor Scales told SPACE.com. "Hopefully it's a creation in a controlled sense, which will allow scientists to study different aspects of it, the turbulence generated on the inside, the distribution of dust particles and such." CARE is a project of the Naval Research Laboratory and the Department of Defense Space Test Program. The spacecraft will launch aboard a NASA four-stage Black Brant XII suborbital sounding rocket…Researchers will track the CARE dust cloud for days or even months to study its behavior and development over time…If CARE cannot launch Tuesday, the team can try again between Sept. 16 and Sept. 20, 2009…”

The U.S. Navy, NASA, and the U.S. Defense Department have made a decision to conduct one or more an atmospheric tests, in order to create an aluminum oxide dust cloud without the permission and for the most part, the knowledge of the citizens of the United States. These aluminum oxide particles will eventually return to earth polluting our air, water and soils. The tests may damage the various atmospheric boundaries that protect life on earth – no one has any idea what damage this dust cloud and the testing on this dust cloud may do to our climate, agriculture, human health or the amount of infrared and UV radiation reaching the Earth.

It is time to contact elected officials today and protest this action which may begin as early as today, September 14, 2009. The Navy is already conducting warfare testing in the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans and the Gulf of Mexico and has more ranges in the planning and permit stages. Senator Dianne Feinstein and Senator Barbara Boxer noted in a June 19, 2009. Letter to Dr. Jane Lubchenco, NOAA, U.S. Department of Commerce:

“…the Navy plans to increase the number of its exercises or expand the areas in which they may occur, and virtually every coastal state will be affected. Some exercises may occur in the nation’s most biologically sensitive marine habitats, including National Marine Sanctuaries and breeding habitats…” This involves the decimation of more than 11.7 million marine mammals over five years and will increase with each new warfare testing range expansion.

TESTING IN THE PACIFIC, ATLANTIC, GULF OF MEXICO, HAWAII & ALASKA
TESTING INCLUDES, BUT IS NOT LIMITED TO:

* Gunnery Exercises * Bombing Missions * Missile & Torpedo Firing * Underwater Detonations * Research & Testing * Vessel Sinking * Use of hundreds of toxic chemicals, like lead, mercury, tungsten, aluminum coated fiberglass (chaff), Airborne Obscurants like Red & White Phosphorus, fog oils, rocket and jet fuel emissions * Undersea Warfare Training Range Exercises (USWTR) * Mid and High Frequency Sonar Experiments * Both land and ocean exercises will use planes, drones, rockets and sonic booms * Other classified warfare testing experiments will be conducted in these areas.

Now the U.S. Navy has decided that these experiments are not enough and have added atmospheric testing to their test list. Once again the public has been cut out of the debate, given little or no warning, and there are no Congressional hearings planned for any of these warfare and atmospheric tests.

It is now time that we, the people, stand up and stop these tests. The Navy and the Department of Defense have to understand that they are not allowed to go to war on us and our oceans for any reason. It is time to make our elected officials aware that we are going to stand against these policies. Take action today – contact your elected officials and stop these new atmospheric tests and demand Congressional Hearings.

N.a.s.a To Study Highest Clouds On Earth

Sept 15

Here is more information on today’s experiment. HAARP and other antenna arrays are being used, I see Norway’s antenna array will be in operation. This information was forwarded to me from California Skywatch.

Check out News With Views article by Rosalind Peterson (see above). In her article, Prof. Wayne A. Scales is quoted

<blockquote>“…CARE will release its (aluminum oxide) (4), dust particles a bit higher than that, then let them settle back down to a lower altitude.”What the CARE experiment hopes to do is to create an artificial dust layer,” Professor Scales told SPACE.com. “Hopefully it’s a creation in a controlled sense, which will allow scientists to study different aspects of it, the turbulence generated on the inside, the distribution of dust particles and such.” CARE is a project of the Naval Research Laboratory and the Department of Defense Space Test Program. The spacecraft will launch aboard a NASA four-stage Black Brant XII suborbital sounding rocket…Researchers will track the CARE dust cloud for days or even months to study its behavior and development over time…If CARE cannot launch Tuesday, the team can try again between Sept. 16 and Sept. 20, 2009…”</blockquote>

Here is the PDF document from Prof. Wayne A. Scales notes (maybe a PowerPoint document) with the Bradley Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. Here are some notes from the PDF. This is a chemical alteration of the atmosphere that will affect climate.

How is the space environment perturbed ?

* Injection of charged particle beams (heavy ions Injection of charged particle beams or electron beams)
* Release of chemicals that Release of chemicals that photoionize (barium)
* Release of chemicals that attach electrons (nickel carbonyl, sulfur hexafluride trifloromethyl bromide)
* Release of aerosol particles (space shuttle exhaust)
* Injection of high power radio waves from space or the ground (HAARP, or the ground (HAARP, Arecibo, EISCAT Tromso)

[Image: Perturbation.JPG]

Why is this an important area of research?

* Allows study of basic physics of the near earth environment
* Allows for control of some physical processes in the space environment
* Allows for possible denial of adversary communication/navigation systems (military)
* Allows for possible new communication system techniques (military)

Current Projects

* Artificial Perturbation of Natural Dust Clouds in the Space Environment (Sponsored by NSF)
* Creation of Artificial Dust Clouds in the Space Environment (Sponsored by NRL)
* Creation of Artificial Plasma Clouds in Space for Remediation of Radioactive Particles after High Altitude Thermonuclear Detonation HAND (Sponsored by ONR and NRL)

N.a.s.a To Study Highest Clouds On Earth
This is really WILD stuff -- so Haarp is being used in combo with NASA and the Navy to emit aluminum oxide at high atmosphere levels after knowing that cloud formations have already been changed due to global warming. This is obviously like the chemtrail black-ops -- some sort of anti-global warming defense shield which is also tied into "evolving" life on Earth through electromagnetic pollution and heavy metals, bionanomotors, etc.

Yeah here's the way it works:

I don't think you're aware of the quantities involved. They are minuscule. So are their effects.
