Actual Sounds Of Unvierse NASA Voyager

In Astrophysics on March 29, 2014 at 16:45

Listen to these sounds recorded by NASA’s Voyager in Deep Space.


The Second one is by an Amateur capturing the Sounds of the Space .


Listen carefully the third sequence of Sound in this Video.


And listen to the last one, closing your eyes.

Thanks to the Fermi Large Area (LAT) telescope, we can now ‘see’ gamma rays (high frequency electromagnetic waves) in the universe. Gamma rays are comprised of photons (elementary particles), each of which have their own energy and frequency.


The higher the energy, the higher the frequency. By measuring their frequency, we can convert rays into musical notes.


Gamma ray bursts are some of the most powerful explosions in the universe


. A particularly explosive number back in 2008, the GRB 080916C, was captured by the LAT and is the basis for the musical track. During the brightest part of the explosion, the LAT detected 100s of gamma rays from the extremely-distant explosion. NASA converted the data to music and slowed the rates down by a factor of 5x to hear the individual gamma rays better


. Each was then represented by a different instrument (harp, piano etc) and along with the accompanying animation, illustrate the explosions journey.

Zero Day Aryabhatta Julian Calendars

In Astrophysics, Hinduism on March 14, 2014 at 11:41

The essential difference between the Hindu Calendar and the Julian Calendar is that the Julian Calendar takes Time as Linear,forward Flowing, while Hinduism states that Time is Circular.

The reason for this situation is the assumption that Time is Linear.

West thinks Time is Linear.

Time flows in one direction that is forward.
What if Time is Cyclic?

That is, it flows around and depending on where you are.

Time moves both forwards and backwards .

Time is a stream; so is Space. Per se they are Absolute.

They are Relative to the observer.

To put it in simpler words ,things exist in Space and Time at all times irrespective of your positioning and what we say to day has happened ,is right now happening at another level for an observer positioned to observe it


For them, our Universe is Past.

Similarly for another observer, what we see as future, may be Present.

Indian Concept of Time.

Hinduism advocates Cyclic Theory of Time.


TIME- Calculation in Hindu Philosophy.

3.2 seconds- 1 Kaashtai.

30 Kaashtais or 1.6 minutes or 96 seconds -1 Kalai

30 kalais or 48 minutes – 1 Muhurtham

30 Muhurthams or 1440 minutes one day.24 hrs of western time)

15 Days -one Paksha

2 Paksas – one Month

6 Months -one Ayanam

2 Ayanams -one Year)

There are Four AEONS (yugas).-In terms of Man-Years.

I. Kali Yugam 4, 32,000 years.

II. Dwapara Yuga 8, 64,000years. (Kali x 2)

III. Tretha Yuga 12, 96,000 years. (Kali x 3)

IV. Krita Yuga 17, 28,000 years. (Kali x 4)

V. Total 43, 32,000 years

For Devas, in the next plane of existence, one year by human calculation is one day.

Time Non Linear.

For details on this see under Time,Astrophysics

Aryabhatta was the ancient Astronomer and mathematician of India.

He was the first astronomer of the world

He used the as Zero Day the beginning of Maha Yuga of Hinduism.

But as the number of years were innumerable, the beginning of Kaliyuga was taken as  the starting Day by the later Astronomers of India,(from the midnight of 17-18 February 3102 BCE (BC)

This was called Ahargana.

Julian Day Number was started by a French Scholar Joseph Scaliger in CE (AD) 1582.

Julian Calendar uses  Greenwhich mean noon of 1st January, 4713 BCE (BC).

Vishnu’s Navel Galaxy Center Verified Collapse Of Civilizations

In Astrophysics, Hinduism on December 28, 2013 at 20:47

Hindu Astronomy, which is intricately linked to Indian Philosophy(in Hinduism all these are intricately interwoven) calls the Center of our Universe,Galaxy)  as Vishnu Nabhi, the navel of Lord Vishnu.

The Galactic Center

The Galactic center. In our home galaxy, the Galactic Center corresponds to an area of space between the constellations of Scorpio and Sagittarius, its critical points are in the Gandanta degrees of these signs. Image from:http://starworlds.blogspot.in/2010/11/astroweather-transformative-alignments.html

Hinduism states that the world, through Brahma, evolved from the Navel of Lord Vishnu.

Brahma , with the blessings of Lord Vishnu created the world by producing Daksha Prajapathi , the first Man.

Then the entire Humanity evolved.

This is creation part elaborated.

Now to Astronomy.

The Sun ascends and descends from the navel of Lord Vishnu,.

Sun takes 12, 000 years for ascension, moving towards the navel, and 12’000 years  for descending, moving away from Lord Vishnu’s Navel.

( in Earth Years and the distance from the navel of Lord Vishnu to the center of the earth)

These 24,000 year of Ascending and Descending cycle approximates the 25,765 Precessional Years when the sun moves backwards in the 12 zodiacal constellations.

This is from the Surya Siddhanta.

1.Lord Vishnu’s Nabhi as the center of our Milky way Galaxy verified.

“The Galactic Center cannot be observed at visible, ultraviolet, or x-ray wavelengths because interstellar dust obscures the line of sight. All scientific information about it comes from observations of gamma ray, hard X-ray, infrared, and radio wavelengths. The precise astronomical location of the Galactic Center at approximately 3 degrees Sagittarius (sidereal) was first verified in 1918 by Harlow Shapley. However its energetic connection to the earth was not realized until 1932 when Karl G. Jansky, an engineer working for Bell Telephone, was investigating the source of the static interference with overseas telephone lines. He discovered that the interference was due to radio waves being emitted from the center of the galaxy. The source of the radio waves appears to be located almost exactly at the Galactic Center, and may coincide with a super massive black hole. This black hole has the equivalent mass of 4 million suns and is the source of most of the gravitational energy in our galaxy. Thus the Galactic Center is the Sun around which our Sun rotates.
Hinduism understood this connection between Sun and the Galaxy, and used it as a marker for the ascending and descending yuga cycles that are measured by our Earth/Sun relationship to it (ie the pole star alignments at the solstices).

During the past decade the winter solstice occurs as the Sun rises in the mouth of the great rift or Galactic Center and will be exact in 2012. In Galactic Alignment John Major Jenkins revealed that this alignment is one of the astronomical phenomena tracked by ancient Mayan, Egyptians and Vedic traditions.

Our Galactic Center  In our home galaxy, the Galactic corresponds to an area of space between the constellations of Scorpio and Sagittarius, its critical points are in the Gandanta degrees of these signs.

..In our home galaxy, the Galactic Center corresponds to an area of space between the constellations of Scorpio and Sagittarius, its critical points are in the Gandanta degrees of these signs. In Vedic astrology the transition of a water sign to fire sign is called Gandanta,.

This is an inauspicious position causing misery to the area of influence of the planet.

Sanskrit word Gand means knot, or node, and anta means end, in particular the last 3 degrees of a water sign, and first three degrees of a fire sign — at the three distinct junctions of Pisces (Revati)- Aries (Aswini), Cancer (Ashlesha)- Leo (Magha), and Scorpio (Jyeshta)- Sagittarius (Mula).


2.Collapse of Civilizations Indicted.

As it is very complicated to follow, later Hinduism follows the Great Bear Constellation’ or the Saptha Rishi Mandala or constellation .

The findings are the same. but these calculations are easy to follow.

“According to this calendar the Great Bear stayed in one constellation for 100 years, thus adding up to 2,700 years for 27 constellations. However, 12,000 years were equally divided into four Yugas or Ages with each yuga getting 3,000 years: Satya Yuga (Golden Age), Treta Yuga (Silver Age), Dwapar Yuga (Bronze Age) and Kali Yuga (Iron Age), with the Transition or Mutation period of 300 years each.

It has been established by several scholars through the historical accounts in Mahabharata and visits of the Greeks travelers etc to India, that the Saptrishi Calendar started in 6676 BCE. Moreover, since Mahabharata describes events happening in Dwapara Yuga, it has been established that 6676 BCE marks the beginning of Descending Dwapara Yuga. According to this calculation, we are in the Ascending Kali Yuga (676 BCE to 2025 CE). Now, the Transitional Period of 300 years starts from 2025 CE and ends in 2325CE before the next yuga starts.

What is important here is the Transitional Period. Calculations indicate that in the past Transitional Periods, Sri Yukteshwar’s “complete change” indeed took place. Scholars have linked in this way:

Consider Transitional or Mutation Period preceding Ascending Kali Yuga, 300 years back from 676 BCE – Troy was destroyed, the great Mycenaean cities collapsed, “Third Intermediate Period” of Egypt happened, Indus Valley Civilisation ended, and Hekla volcano eruption”I

It is expressed in these treatises that Human Intellect and culture peaks as the Sun moves towards the Vishnunabhi and declines when it moves away from it.

Based on complex calculations on this and the checking up of our earth’s History and Civilization , increased volcanic eruptions, sink holes, increased earthquakes, increased flooding, increased cracking of the earth because of earth swelling began in 2012.

It is expected to worsen and the calamities will increase  and would lead to the collapse of Civilizations in Three Hundred years time.



2013-14 Rainfall Hinduism Prediction

In Hinduism on November 27, 2013 at 08:14

Hindus had a highly calibrated measuring system along with other units of measurement.

They also developed Astronomy and Astrophysics , without a Telescope and were/are able to predict Solar and lunar Eclipses to .1 degree of accuracy.

Hindus have a yearly Manual listing the phases of the moon, time when the Planets will rise and set on every day, the dates on which the Sun/Moon will be in a particular Zodiac sign.

The Hindus have named the twelve months after the presence of the Moon in a specific constellation.

Apart from this, based on these astronomical calculations they also predict the yearly rainfall.

I am not sure whether some one has checked these Rainfall Data predicted with the actual Rainfall in a Year.

Would some one do some research  on this?

A point to be noted is the area they speak about for rainfall covers the landmass of Bharata Varsha, which extends from the Northern limits of USSR in the North, up to Antarctic in the south , to US in the West and to the pacific board in the East (India as we know is taken as reference here).

The estimated rainfall for the period April 2013-March 31, 2014.

Size of the Clouds.

Height 500 to 800 miles, this might mean that the water vapour Size.( 100 Yojanas, one Yojana is 5 to eight miles;eight miles seems to be accepted conversion rate)

The Volume of rain is 64 liters( One Marakkal is 8 Padi one Padi is two liters appx) or 1953 Cubic inches).

Of this, 950 Cubic inches on the sea,570 on the mountains balance  on Landmass.

This post is based on the predictions of Pambupanchanga.

Pyramids Show Astronomical Alignment

In Astrophysics, Interesting and funny, Science on August 19, 2013 at 19:44

I posted a blog on 16 October, 2011 that NASA Satellites stumble over Tirunallaru Tamil Nadu and that there is no reference to this in NASA site.

It remains a mystery, though some have called it as a Hoax.

NASA is silent.

NASA is notorious for not acknowledging inconvenient questions, like UFO, Aliens.

Now comes news that the alignment of some Pyramids represent an ancient Astronomical phenomenon.

Let me add that there are ancient temples in India, especially in the South, that allow Sunlight on a particular day on the Idol at the Sanctum Sanctorum,Tree yielding(at the Temple premises) fruit straight from the Flower stage(outside the temple it follows the normal process) stone,Idol where if you insert an iron string through one year it comes through the other ear,Idols changing colors every two and a half hours…the list is endless.


Pyramid represents ancient Astronomical Alignment.

Archaeologists have discovered a pyramid in southern Peru, built between 600 B.C. and 50 B.C. ago, would have aligned with two stone lines and the setting sun during the winter solstice. Here, a 3D model shows the event that happened at the Cerro del Gentil pyramid during the winter solstice.


Pyramid and Astronomical Alignment.

dit: Map by Laura Griffin This map shows the location of the stone lines (also called geoglyphs) along with cairns. The two lines which frame the Cerro del Gentil pyramid, as well as the setting winter solstice sun, are highlighted.

The two stone lines, called geoglyphs, are located about 1.2 miles (2 kilometers) east-southeast from the pyramid.

They run for about 1,640 feet (500 meters), and researchers say the lines were “positioned in such a way as to frame the pyramid as one descended down the valley from the highlands.”

Using astronomical software and 3D modeling, the researchers determined that a remarkable event would have occurred during the time of the winter solstice…..

“When viewed in 3D models, these lines appear to converge at a point beyond the horizon and frame not only the site of Cerro del Gentil [where the pyramid is], but also the setting sun during the time of the winter solstice,” the research team wrote in a poster presentation given recently at the Society for American Archaeology annual meeting in Honolulu.

“Thus someone viewing the sunset from these lines during the winter solstice would have seen the sun setting directly behind, or sinking into, the adobe pyramid,” they write. “Thus the pyramid and the linear geoglyph constitute part of a single architectural complex, with potential cosmological significance, that ritualized the entire pampa landscape.” (The word “pampa” stands for plain.)

The flattop pyramid is 16 feet (5 m) high and was built sometime between 600 B.C. and 50 B.C., being reoccupied somewhere between A.D. 200 and 400. Finds near the pyramid include textiles, shells and ceramics. The stone lines were constructed at some point between 500 B.C. and A.D. 400.
