Current Brightest Binocular Comet and Upcoming Solar Eclipse

© 1999 by Linda Moulton Howe

June 15, 1999 Cambridge, Massachusetts ­ A comet discovered on April 16th in the Southern Hemisphere is now moving further north towards the Constellation of Cancer. It's not visible to the naked eye, but it is the brightest comet for binocular viewing out of nearly sixty now being tracked by Harvard University's Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory. The icy ball is called "Comet C/1999 H1-Lee" after its accidental discovery by astronomer Steven Lee who works at the Anglo Australian Observatory in New South Wales.

Eta Carainae – A Puzzling Star On Its Way To Hypernova

© 1999 by Linda Moulton Howe

June 11, 1999  Minneapolis, Minnesota ­ Over the past year, a star in the Caraina Constellation of the Southern Hemisphere has doubled in brightness. How a star that is 7,500 light years away from earth could brighten so dramatically baffles astronomers. In fact, of all the stars that can be seen with the naked eye from earth - none are as mysterious and confusing as Eta Carinae. If you live in southern Texas, southern Florida or Hawaii, you can barely see the star peeking up a little above the horizon straight south in June. It has a reddish-orange color and was completely invisible to the naked eye only a few years ago.

Blowing Up Dangerous Germs with Oily “Nano Bombs”

© 1999 by Linda Moulton Howe

May 30, 1999  Ann Arbor, Michigan ­ A few weeks ago I reported on Dreamland that the U. S. government is very concerned about biological warfare and bioterrorists. What would happen if anthrax spores, small pox or other dangerous infectious diseases were sprayed into the air above one or more American cities?

One new possible answer seems surprisingly simple and miraculously effective: drops of oil ­ droplets so small they can adhere to the surface of deadly anthrax and small pox pathogens and literally explode the germs. That's why these oil drops are called "nano bombs." Nano means "one billionth." Smaller than viruses and bacteria.

Amphibian Decline – Parasites and Increased UV Radiation

© 1999 by Linda Moulton Howe

May 27, 1999  Corvallis, Oregon - A headline in the Environment section of the October 28, 1996 Time magazine said, "Trouble in the Lily Pads - Something ominous is happening to Minnesota's frogs - and it's spreading." Amphibians are particularly sensitive to environmental changes and pollution because they live in water and on land and breathe through their skin. So, like a canary in a miner's cage that will die before the miner does if the air is bad, frogs, toads and salamanders are signaling that something is wrong in our world.

The problem was first noticed in 1995 when school children in Minnesota found deformed frogs. Some were missing a leg, some had withered arms, others had shrunken eyes or none at all. One had nine legs and another had three eyes, one in the back of its throat.

The Shroud of Turin – Blood Tests

© 1999 by Linda Moulton Howe

May 23, 1999  Danbury, Connecticut - The Shroud of Turin is a linen cloth alleged to be the burial shroud of Christ. It has straw-colored front and back images of a crucified man with blood colored wounds and dozens of scourge marks similar to whips used two thousand years ago. It's as if the linen shroud had been wrapped around the man's body from the feet up over the head and back down to the feet after the blood had clotted. The body images are also bracketed the entire length of the cloth by parallel burn and scorch marks from fire damage suffered in 1532.


The Shroud images were photographed in 1931 and 1978. In the authoritative and well-illustrated book, The Blood and The Shroud by Ian Wilson, positive and negative photographs of the head and body clearly show rivulets of blood on the head and lash marks and larger blood stains on the body.

The Shroud of Turin – Dematerialization of the Body?

© 1999 by Linda Moulton Howe

May 20, 1999 Toronto, Canada - The Shroud of Turin is a linen cloth alleged to be the burial shroud of Christ. It has the front and back images of a crucified man as if the linen had been wrapped around the body from the feet up over the head and back down to the feet, leaving complete front and back images -- including what appear to be bloodstains. The sharp detail of the blood combined with what appear to be teeth and bones on the cloth have provoked several scientists to hypothesize that intense radiation involving light and x-ray frequencies produced the images on the linen. The Shroud was photographed in 1931 and 1978 and you can visit www.shroud.com for more information about international Shroud research.

The Mysterious Life and Death of Dr. Wilhelm Reich

April 20, 1999 New York City - One of the most maligned scientists of the 20th century was psychiatrist
Dr. Wilhelm Reich. He was born on March 24th, 1897 in the Austro-Hungarian Empire, grew up on a farm, and then entered medical school. By
the 1920s, Dr. Reich was being hailed as the heir apparent to Sigmund Freud because of his contributions to psychoanalysis.

By the 1930s, Dr. Reich's studies of biogenesis -- the origin of life -- were thought by some to be worthy of a Nobel Prize.
Then in the 1940s in the United States, Dr. Reich claimed to discover a new form of energy that he said pervaded all space
and life, including vacuums. He began to write about a new paradigm in physics, one in which energy -- not matter -- is primary.
And Dr. Reich began to experiment with weather modification. Those experiments seemed to attract glowing lights of unknown
origin and Reich speculated the lights were advanced machines operated by non-human intelligences. All of this apparently threatened
people of power and financial influence in America and Europe.

Spinach Power for Integrated Circuits and Fuel Cells

© 1999 by Linda Moulton Howe
 
April 14, 1999  Oak
Ridge, Tennessee -
Popeye ate spinach leaves for strength. Now researchers at Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee are using microscopic spinach proteins for electronic devices. Spinach leaves are put in a blender and processed down to microscopic proteins called chloroplasts that convert light into chemical energy. The next step is a scientific breakthrough first done by physicist Dr. Elias Greenbaum at the Oak Ridge National Lab. He puts the spinach proteins into a platinum solution to get a metal coating. This marriage between the plant and mineral world could make silicon chips obsolete in another ten years. I asked Dr. Greenbaum why spinach?

Astronomy Updates

The American Astronomical Society has been meeting in Austin, Texas this week where they have made it clear that understanding how the universe is structured has become one of the central goals in cosmology. And the puzzles outweigh the answers.

1) First, University of Maine astronomer David Batuski described the largest structures ever seen in the universe. To help understand what the structure looks like, imagine a string of 14 pearls. But each pearl is flattened more like a pancake. Each flattened pearl is actually a cluster of hundreds, perhaps thousands, of galaxies. And within each galaxy are millions of suns.
