SOHO down “Emergency Sun Reacquisition” mode

SOHO

Heliospheric and Solar Observatory SOHO down.

Notice SOHO siteLACK OF DATA UPDATES. SOHO went into “Emergency Sun Reacquisition” (ESR – The Very Latest SOHO Images) mode on Friday May 4, 2012, caused by a false trigger of the Coarse Sun Pointing Attitude Anomaly Detector. We are working on the recovery of the spacecraft to normal mode. Nominal science operations should be re-established in the next couple of days.

‘False trigger of the Coarse Sun Pointing Attitude Anomaly Detector’ … OK, but what Anomaly has thrown it off so it has lost it?

Besides SOHO also the magnetosphere real time simulation is terminated and it seems that several of the Cascades seismograph stations have been very intermittent of late and current VALT – possibly the most important one on Mt St Helens – is still down after about 6 days

The last time SOHO went down was on June 24, 1998. They had no contact with the craft for more than 1 month and 3 months passed by before Soho was back into ‘normal mode’.

Update May 8, 2012: : NASA lies SOHO is up! (see video)

    uh huh. lets see how long it stays off line.
    Strikes me as convenient timing considering this years expected (hypothesized) pattern of events.

    Hmmmm…. More lies from NASA!
    Think this shouldn’t surprise anybody by now! As their main aim is to lie to the public about all space stuffs!

    • A few fun facts about SOHO that you obviously don’t know :

      The craft is in it’s 16th year of operation. It was launched in Dec 1995, intended for a 2 year mission length. It lost its stabilizing gyro in 1998 and the motor to its main antenna in 2003.

      You still think it’s a mystery that it sometimes acts a bit funky…?

      But I’m sure you have irrefutable proof of NASA’s lies, huh? After all, if science doesn’t correlate with your beliefs then NASA must be lying, right?

        Not at all.
        I have no problem with the notion it could be a very real malfunction.
        Sh!t really does happen in the real world.
        How ever, NASA’s track record for giving us the real goods, accurate and undistorted information, and just out right secrets and lies, is Phenomenal.
        And the evidence should you do your “Own” home work IS astounding to support it. ( Notice any flags planted on the moon waving in the wind lately? 😉
        And so, many of us remain more than merely skeptical.
        Its not the first satellite they have turned off rather than let the public see whats really out there.
        Thank you for your contribution tho. 😉

      • interesting that all the sites that would give us a warning are all disappearing with no backup sites to go to… that is usually unheard of on the net, the information highway. something big is in the area and they don’t want us peeking at it. do you think nasa is the only one that looks at space? but no other sites are available? very interesting indeed.

        Fake?
        So is the mainstream media. Whats your point?
        When mainstream media fails to report in an unbiased undistorted manor, fails to report the facts, or even fails to cover stories and events in their entirety, we turn to other sources.
        And let me tell you, Not all stories reported in these pulp trash publications are fake. When you do some follow up home work, you find out that the Chupacabra actually exists… Just Not any where off the Islands it was originally encountered.
        Chupacabra is Not on the north American mainland. Coyotes with Mange do Not fit the original descriptions of Up right walking, glowing red eyed hopping creatures that are capable of telepathy.
        But I digress.
        Some people like My self, take a story, no matter where it comes from, and look for corresponding stories from other sources.
        We crunch numbers, compare notes and details, and weed out propaganda and disinformation. In most cases we are left with even More questions than we have answers.
        We don’t take things at face value on first read.
        we work the problem till we find the cracks and peer through to glimmers of truth. And then when we think we have the answers at last, we ask again. We look at it from Your- ehem, I mean the Nay sayers point of view for the angles and approaches that argue against and discredit. And it goes on.
        We are More open minded, some of us any way, than you may realise. More objective.
        And it doesn’t matter if we miss spell the word (Realize) with an S instead of a Z.
        It matters that We are doing more home work and research than those whom pop up for only a few days on sites like this, poo poo every thing in sight and disappear soon after.
        the opinions of people like that hold very little weight with some one like Me.
        Thanx for coming out.

  8. @ Massif1001 and all the conspiracy thinkers
    Do you have any idea how many people are working @ the SOHO project from ESA and NASA? You think that hundreds of people from different countries can be fooled? You think you can shut down a satellite like this, or tell public that the satellite is down and keep it operational? Maybe you should take a tour in one of the space centers and get some background information on space operations before you post such stupid statements that NASA has switched down the satellite on purpose.

    • BRUCE.
      Ive been waiting for some one to put that exact question.
      Lets talk about the Manhattan project shall we?
      It had scientists from around the world helping to construct plan and test the first nuclear bomb. it also had more than 150 Thousand, thats right One hundred and 50 thousand, people working on the project in its entirety from the time it was on paper to the time it was dropped on Heroshima and nagasaki.
      and yet, it was Not leaked. The enemies did Not see it coming, other than whispers that the americans were working on some new weapon.
      150,000 over a 5+ year period. How was that possible?
      Yet it happened.
      When you have Nasa workers and scientists that have their pensions tied up in future paper work, thier properties and lands confiscatable, thier bank accounts which can be frozen and cleaned out, thier families futures, Jail, torture, charges of treason which can come with loss of citizenship and even a death sentence.
      Every worker that works in area’s of sensitive informations signs non disclosure agreements and is made perfectly aware of all that can befall them should they breach that contract.
      They are also paid exorbitant amounts to do thier job and maintain secrecy.
      They are given privileges and grants for thier own researches and more.
      And yet…. some DO talk. We have tons of evidences that scientists and workers get arrested or dissapear for reasons unknown or reasons suspected. And the families clam up like Vises. if they speak now the fate of thier missing loved one is Absolutely assured.
      So we usually dont even get to hear about it at all.
      As well, the main stream media is Owned by the same people that want to keep the secrets, you will never hear news of these on goings there.
      So, can 150,000 keep quite for years? You bet!
      And your statement becomes silly because you were either Uninformed on how it actually works, how deep the rabbit hole goes, or…. you just didnt bother to do your home work before saying it.

      I’ll let you think on that now Bruce.
      But while you do, remember, the laws have now been passed that allow for people to be arrested and indefinitely detained with out legal recourse what so ever. You dont have to sign non disclosure agreements any more to simply dissapear. truth is, you never Did, only now its considered Legal)
      Wouldnt YOU just take the money and shut the F-CK up too?

        Why would they spend trillions in stolen monies to build such things if they DIDNT know some thing was comming?
        Lastly, if You were a scientists or a worker that worked in sensative area,s and were offered a place in these shelters would You risk that place for you and your family by talking?
        You cant actually Help those whom dont have such a place ready, so whats the point on spilling the beans any way?
        there, I think we’ve covered at least a good 50% of how it actually works now.

  10. ah, vara, thou hast not changed. believe it or not, the manhatten project did leak out, to the russians as a matter of fact, from some of the scientists involved. I’m not saying secrets can’t be kept, but that was not one of them. You are correct in suggesting there is tons of evidence out there, but the “flag waving” on the moon would not be one of them. When will this site ever take a different opinion as a challenge to fine tune or perfect one’s own point of view rather than as an excuse to belittle others of a different mindset? Just because certain people here state that something is “true” because “they” have done the work and found it out doesn’t in and of itself prove anything. Brilliant people can still be fooled, and as a student of history i am repeatedly amazed at what people will believe is true when it isn’t, or deny the truth of something that is quite obvious. But who is the final arbitrator of the facts. If you guys want to see big ufo’s around the sun with laser beams or chubaca in a carcass, that’s fine. Just remember your interpretation isn’t correct solely because you think so. Making fun of someone is not the equilavent of refuting their viewpoint. Sigh. Some things never do change.

      Gotta love correcting you Chuck. Good to have you back.
      First, the russians were still our Allies and they had many scientists helping out on the manhatan project, so that wasnt a leak. A leak is when the enemies you plan on dropping it on, find out and put a dent in your plans. Thats a leak.
      Next: The flag waving on the moon sure as Hell was one of them.
      when analized, the flag didnt simply slow in its wave but picked up at points showing that an out side force and Not internal stored kinetic momentum was continuing to move it. And as I am sure you well know,… or Should, thats Not the only damning piece of evidence that points to NASA lying to the public.
      Chuck.
      Why do you bring up things like, people having a difference of opinion, as if its a bad thing. We’re all for it here.
      And, when our opinion differs from some one elses, we call them on it. there’s nothing wrong with that.
      Not sure why you want to make that out like its a bad thing. its the foundation of all debate. And with debate, we weed out the rubbish, no matter which side its on.

  11. weeding out rubbish is always a good thing. it’s that it always seems to be the “other guys” rubbish., and not one’s own. misreading my post is a point in hand. by dealing with an issue no one made, one can pretend to have answered a non-existent protest. To ask me, or to insinuate that i would have a problem with disagreement is a bit facetious. I love debate. What i don’t like is the personal denigration by others towards those who do. And yes, eventually the russians were our, not always trusted, allies AFTER Hitler attacked them. Initially both russia and germany signed a non-aggression pact which was broken with operation Babarossa.. Allies have been known to spy on each other. Ever wonder why, when Stalin was “informed” of our exploding a new “super”bomb, that he showed no surprise, or even interest, in knowing more details. Why should he. he already knew. And, sure as Hell, the flag on the moon isn’t one of the good examples. Explanations have been proffered, when fairly considered, are as good as those offered by the “hoax” crowd. There’s plenty more good stuff that leans a bit more towards the irrefutable than the flag case. Again, to say that i think different opinions is a ‘bad thing” , well, that’s a statement i’ve never(and never would) make as long as i live. I think you know full and well my frustration is with the denigration of those who do, and the often accompanying arrogance that usually follows along. By all means, continue to disagree. Just be decent about it. An added note: in the spying trials that took place right after world war two, few, if any, were convicted of spying for the Germans. They were convicted for spying for the Russians. The point is not who spied for who, but the fact that information was being leaked. So no matter how big, or small, a project, people, for various reasons, selfish or patriotic, will often talk. History is full of innumerous examples of just such behavior. To turn your arguement around, if we live in a country where tens or hundreds of thousands of people could be involved in a project where the knowledge, let’s say, of the upcoming destruction of the planet is known, and NOT ONE Single person speaks our or leaks it, even if to trade for their or their famalies safety, for the worlds benefit, then what the hell. We don’t deserve to be warned or saved. And if the world is left populated with nothing but narcisistic survivors, i wouldn’t want to live there anyway. Thank you for your welcome. Good to be back. Hope you all are well.

      Simple answer for your query:
      Yes you can testify against yourself, if you take advantage of the Flux capacitor you can tell Marty to travel back to 1955 and leave a time capsule containing another flux capacitor with instructions to travel to 2012 and inform yourself of your own death by your own hand, your own self can then sit in on the murder investigation, most likely you will charged with the murder of yourself and do 25years in prison, upon which time Doc Brown can ram the time train through the prison walls freeing you and taking you back to 1995 where you buy a 20% stake in Apple co and live the rest of your life sitting comfortably under the new name “Max Power”. thus is the story of Chuck….🙂
