No Blackout on Earth

Whether true or not, you should be prepared! Do not panic, stay calm, and pray. Remember to smile more, more loving, more forgiving each day. It would be better to avoid long trips throughout the month of December 2012. Rumor has it, that NASA estimated total darkness on ​​December 23-25, 2012 at the time of all the planets in the Milky Way is in a position parallel to the Sun.

The issue has become a byword everywhere, along with doomsday predictions arising from the Mayan calendar. But the end was not going to happen. The occurrence of the phenomenon rumored to be harmful to the Earth is unlikely to be proven. In fact, rumor widely reported that the earth will be dark or blackout on 23-25 ​​December 2012, is unlikely to become a reality.

"Never happen where eight planets in the solar system at aligned position. And if parallel will not affect the occurrence of blackout," said Ervan Irawan Akbar, researchers at Bosscha Observatory, Lembang, West Bandung regency, Thursday (20/12).

Blackout is the condition of the earth of darkness during the day because it does not get sunlight. According Ervan, the condition was not possible due to the smaller size of the earth from the sun. "If the analogy, the size of sun and the earth as a house and marbles, even if there are other stars that planets the size of Jupiter at large as a basketball, so it will not happen and unscientific. And dark conditions that may not happen," said Ervan when met at the Bosscha Observatory, Lembang, Thursday (20/12).
Ervan said the results of astronomer at Bosscha Observatory stated that there was something strange about the solar system. Currently the Earth is in good condition. What was happening is the annual cycle of the sun where on December 21, 2012, the Sun is at the southernmost point of the Earth or the winter solstice. This cycle did not cause adverse effects. Only, in the northern hemisphere like Canada and the United States, the condition is winter. As for the equatorial region, this cycle will cause the monsoons and elnino.

Ervan said, the sun photo that captured on October 30, 2012 was recorded solar storm activity. However, no significant impact to the earth since the earth's magnetic field is stronger than the sun. The most tangible impact is a disorder of communication electronic equipment. For the people in the region will be able to see the polar aurora phenomena such as rainbows.

"In conclusion, on December 21, 2012 the condition of the universe, including the Earth, from the aspect of astronomical observations show no signs of the ordinary. All was normal," he said. Ervan also shows the official site of www.nasa.gov were denied when the NASA's blackout disseminate information related to a number of pages in the world. In English writing, as reported by Snopes, Thursday (13/12), NASA's answer to all the rumors that caused such uproar. They claim never spread any news related to the universe, especially about the blackout. "NASA or other scientists never revealed any statements about it," NASA officials said.

Meanwhile, as quoted from the site Urbanlegends, alignment is referred to as having significance as a place of passage of the sun, as seen from Earth. But on a certain date, such as December 21, 2012, the sun is reportedly going to be in the center of the galaxy. But do not worry, this event did not result in any impact on the planet.

Ervan added in 2012 to 2014, the Earth will experience a solar storm. These conditions do not need to worry because some time ago the solar storm events have occurred. Solar storm is a condition in which the incoming fire from the sun to the earth. But fire can be resisted by the Earth's magnetic field so it has no impact whatsoever on humans.

An astronomy professor at Foothill College, Andrew Fraknoi, then explained, concerns about the fate of the earth should be more focused on the issue of climate change than the types of disasters caused by catastrophic cosmic event. Though slowly, the real problem is more threatening third planet closest to the sun. "The greatest threat to the Earth in late 2012 and in the future is the human beings themselves," said Andrew Fraknoi. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | PUGA HILAL B | PIKIRAN RAKYAT 21122012]
