A new daily feature: ORBIT
Know we the flesh is fleeting. The things men count great are nothing to us. The things we seek are not of the body but are only the perfected state of the soul. Long, long ago, I cast off my body. Wandered I free through the vastness of ether, circled the angles that hold man in bondage. Know ye, O man, ye are only a spirit. The body is nothing. The Soul is the All. Let not your body be a fetter. Cast off the darkness and travel in Light. Cast off your body, O man, and be free, truly a Light that is ONE with the Light. . THOTH

SOLAR MAGNETIC FIELD STRENGTH: Many models of the solar magnetic field used prior to Ulysses assumed that the solar magnetic field was similar to that of a dipole; field lines near the solar equator were thought to form closed loops whereas field lines from the poles were dragged far into interplanetary space by the solar wind. For a dipole, the field strength over the poles is twice that at the equator. Ulysses found that the amount of outward magnetic flux in the solar wind did not vary greatly with latitude, indicating the importance of pressure forces near the sun for evenly distributing magnetic flux.

Cosmic Rays Could Destroy -- And Create -- Life
NEW YORK, N.Y., and HAIFA, Israel, July 9, 1998 -- Jets of cosmic rays from colliding stars can produce lethal amounts of muons in the earth's atmosphere, destroy the ozone layer and radioactivate the environment. more
One of the biggest embarrassments of 20th-century science -- the sun's refusal to emit nearly as many neutrinos as physicists say it should -- inched closer to a possible solution last week when experimenters reported strong new evidence that these weird elementary particles, long thought to be perfectly mass-less, may have a small amount of heft after all. If neutrinos indeed have mass, the story goes, they can change "flavor" on their flight from the center of the Sun, eluding the electronic snares earthlings have been setting. The neutrinos wouldn't be missing, but traveling in disguise. continue
