Jan. 26, 2017: It appears NASA is once again hiding information from the general public, as if we are not deserving of earth’s magnetic shields data since they have taken all shield simulators at ISWA off-line. Coincidentally, earth is currently sensing a very strange cosmic ray event that has the charts in a very bizarre state. Something is going on in space and they are hiding it…again!
In 2012 we saw a magnetopause compression and a complete reversal. With-in a few weeks it too was “taken” off-line and never returned. That was one of the best instruments for shield data in the world. I’m confident they still use it daily, just not for the public.
