Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter's view of Tycho Central Peak

Today, the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) celebrates its fifth anniversary in space. LRO launched from Florida on June 18, 2009 and after a four-day journey, it successfully entered lunar orbit on June 23. In the succeeding five years, LRO has continued to shape our view of our nearest celestial neighbor. LRO data has shown us the tracks and equipment left behind from the Apollo astronauts, created the most precise map of the lunar surface, discovered the coldest known temperatures in the solar system, mapped the distribution of hydrogen and possibly water mixed in the lunar soil, identified craters and many other exciting science discoveriesIn honor of the fifth anniversary, the LRO project kicked off the Moon as Art Campaign. The public was asked to select a favorite orbiter ima… »

SolarCity to build the world's largest advanced solar panel factory, cut down cost of solar power

Chairman of clean energy provider “SolarCity”, Elon Musk, announced yesterday the company has signed an agreement to acquire Silevo, a solar panel technology and manufacturing company. The news comes just a couple of days after his Tesla Motors released all of its patents into the public domain.Silevo has demonstrated a unique combination of high energy output and low cost and the intent of SolarCity is to combine what they believe is fundamentally the best photovoltaic technology with massive economies of scale to achieve a breaktrough in the cost of solar power. Although no other acquisitions are currently being contemplated, SolarCity may acquire additional photovoltaics companies as needed to ensure clear technology leadership and they plan to grow interna… »

Highest level of Tritium measured from a bypass well

Following up this article..

Following up this article.. Tritium density exceeded the safety limit at one of the bypass wells one day after they discharged 1,600 t to the sea [URL]

On 6/12/2014, Tepco announced that they are going to keep using the bypass well that they detected the exceeding density Tritium.

In that well, Tritium density increased from 1,100,000 Bq/m3 to 1,700,000 Bq/m3 since the end of May. From Tepco’s own simulation, it is assumed to jump up to 2,300,000 Bq/m3 where the desired safety limit is 1,500,000 Bq/m3.

Tepco states the volume of water from this well is only 7% of total. Even if they continue pumping up water from this well, the average Tritium density would be 231,800 Bq/m3 because they mix it up with less contaminated water.

At 19:20 of 6/12/2014, Tepco restarted pumping up contaminated water from this well to discharge to the sea.

(Tepco decided to continue using the bypass well that exceeding level of Tritium was measured from [URL 2])

From Tepco’s report, tritium density from the bypass well mentioned above became the highest since they started measuring.

It was 2,000,000 Bq/m3 from the sample taken on 6/16/2014. It’s exceeding the desired safety limit by 500,000 Bq/m3.

However Tepco states the total Tritium density to discharge to the Pacific would be only 300,000 ~ 400,000 Bq/m3, which is under the desired safety limit because they mix it with lower level of contaminated water.

Study finds evidence for CDC cover-up of link between autism and mercury in vaccines

A new study finds the CDC may have covered up the clear and present danger associated with mercury in vaccines.A controversial new study published in Biomed Research International titled, “Methodological Issues and Evidence of Malfeasance in Research Purporting to Show Thimerosal in Vaccines Is Safe,” has exposed convincing evidence of wrong-doing on the part of the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in actively covering up the causal link between mercury in vaccines (Thimerosal) and harm to infants and children.According to the review, “There are over 165 studies that have focused on Thimerosal, an organic mercury (Hg) based compound, used as a preservative in many childhood vaccines, and found it to be harmful. Of these, 16 were conducted to spe… »

U.S. food prices rising 367% faster than inflation; chemical agriculture headed for catastrophic failure

Food prices are now skyrocketing across the USA, says the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). Their most recent report (1) reveals that prices of meat, poultry, fish and eggs leaped 7.7 percent over the last year. That’s nearly 367% higher than the official 2.1% inflation rate claimed by the federal government. (2)Prices on these food items have risen 664% in the last five decades, according to the BLS, but much of the price acceleration has happened in just the last few years… and there’s no end in sight.While the federal government tries to blame rising food prices on global warming — because seemingly everything is now attributed to climate change, including depression and divorces — the far more sobering truth is that conventional agriculture is reaching a… »

JP gov to consider programing 2020 Olympic-torch relay in Fukushima coastal area near Fukushima plant to fight harmful rumor

On 6/17/2014, the chairman of 2020 Tokyo Olympic Organizing Committee, Mori announced they are going to consider supporting Fukushima prefecture to fight against harmful rumor.

They are going to support Fukushima prefectural government to attract the training camp of foreign athletes and also program most of the Olympic-torch relay course in Fukushima.

Fukushima governor, Sato requested Mori to hold the Olympic-torch relay in the coastal area, where Fukushima nuclear plant is located.

Mori also showed the idea to have Japanese athletes train in Fukushima to appeal to the world about the safety.
