The $750 million mission measured the concentrations and distribution of gases important to ozone depletion, climate change and other atmospheric phenomena.
This was (decommissioned 2005) not a “valuable space asset.”
“It was literally a leftist propaganda machine.
The $750 million mission measured the concentrations and distribution of gases important to ozone depletion, climate change and other atmospheric phenomena.”
And it BACKFIRED!
Read the WSJ today and you’ll find in the Opinion section a piece that highlights the results of partical physicists experiements linking cosmic radiation intensity and global temperature.
I mean, who would have thought that solar activity and planet temperatures would ever have been linked?
The scientist, for fear of being decapitated professionally, have all but concluded that solar wind and global temps are linked. They did cloud formation experiments using a cloud chamber and a partical accelerator at CERN.
It’s literally funny to read about it.
I’ll wager this $750M piece of crap was actually disproving their theory and got switched from ‘on’ to ‘off’. Science is a bitch that way, experiments proving and disproving theories, and the nasty way that experiments need to be repeatable.
