  1. First images of Jupiter’s Great Red Spot reach Earth July 12, 2017 William Harwood STORY WRITTEN FOR CBS NEWS & USED WITH PERMISSION An enhanced color view of Jupiter’s Great Red Spot from the Juno spacecraft flyby Monday. Credit: NASA / SWRI / MSSS / Greg Smye-Rumsby / Astronomy Now Two days after NASA’s Juno spacecraft streaked over Jupiter’s Great Red Spot, pictures of the solar system’s largest, most powerful storm, have been transmitted to Earth, giving eager scientist close-up views of the 10,000-mile-wide anticyclone where 400-mph winds have been howling for at least 187 years and possibly much longer. The solar-powered Juno reached the low point of its 53-day orbit around Jupiter, at 9:55 p.m. EDT (GMT-4) Monday, passing within about 2,200 miles of the planet’s cloud tops. Eleven-and-a-half minutes later, it made its first pass directly over the Great Red Spot at an altitude of about 5,600 miles and a velocity of some 130,000 mph. The spacecraft’s camera — JunoCam — and its eight other science instruments were all operating at close approach and the first raw, unprocessed pictures were posted on the camera website early Wednesday. Additional processing is expected to bring out much more detail in the images that, when coupled with data from Juno’s other instruments, will shed more light on the nature of the storm and presumably help answer questions that have baffled scientists for nearly two centuries if not longer. Despite long-term observations by ground-based telescopes and a variety of spacecraft, including the Hubble Space Telescope, the Voyager probes and the Galileo orbiter, scientists still do not understand what powers the storm, how deep it extends below Jupiter’s cloud tops, how long it has swirled or even the source of its reddish hue. Likewise, no one knows why the Great Red Spot has shrunk over the past several decades, becoming more circular than oval, whether the reduction is a transient phenomenon or an indicator that the storm may be dissipating. “Not a lot is known,” Scott Bolton, principal investigator with NASA’s Juno probe, told CBS News in an interview Monday. “Here’s the largest and most fierce storm in the entire solar system and it’s lasted hundreds of years, so that’s a lot different than anything else we’ve ever studied. “The question is, how can it last that long? What’s powering it, how’s it really working inside?” With any luck, the Juno spacecraft might may provide at least some of the answers to Bolton’s questions. This illustration depicts NASA’s Juno spacecraft soaring over Jupiter’s south pole. Credit: NASA/JPL-Caltech While NASA’s Voyager spacecraft captured spectacular zoomed-in images of the Great Red Spot during flybys in 1979, as did the Galileo orbiter in the 1990s and the Cassini probe during its voyage to Saturn, they were not nearly as close to Jupiter as Juno is at the low point of its orbit. JunoCam is a relatively wide-angle camera intended to provide context for Juno’s other instruments and it was added to the mission primarily to engage the public. Because Juno is spinning, the camera’s images show thin strips of the cloudscape below that can be stitched together later to form a full picture. Juno will make repeated passes over the Great Red Spot and “we’re so close, I think we’re going to blow their stuff away,” Bolton said of earlier missions. “We’ll see when we see it. Eventually, we’ll be able to make a bit of a movie, I’m hoping, that you won’t have been able to see before. We’ll definitely get an up-close-and-personal view, and hopefully be able to provide something that lets the viewer feel like they’re riding along.” Launched Aug. 5, 2011, the solar-powered Juno picked up a gravitational boost during a close flyby of Earth in October 2013, putting the craft on a trajectory to intersect Jupiter. Six years later, on July 4, 2016, Juno’s main engine fired to put the craft into an initial 53-day polar orbit. Mission managers originally planned to maneuver Juno into a 14-day “science orbit,” but they opted not to use the main engine again because of a potential problem with the propellant pressurization system. That will stretch out the time needed to complete the mission’s planned observations, but it has no impact on the quality of the data. The unprocessed JunoCam images of the Great Red Spot will be enhanced to bring out subtle details and other data. Scientists are especially eager to learn how far down into the atmosphere the huge storm might extend. Juno’s microwave radiometer can detect radiation coming from six cloud levels, allowing scientists to get an indirect view of what’s going on as deep as 340 miles below the visible cloud tops. Earlier Juno observations of other regions show “there are motions going on deep in Jupiter … that we did not expect,” Bolton said. “Even 50 kilometers down it doesn’t seem to be behaving the way we thought,” he said. “Most scientists believed that as soon as you drop below the sunlit clouds and you got into where the sunlight didn’t reach that everything would kind of be uniform and boring. And that’s not the case. We see quite a bit of variability.” As for how deep the Great Red Spot might extend, “nobody knows,” Bolton said. “Juno’s equipped to see below the cloud tops,” he said. “We will compare how Jupiter looks underneath its cloud tops at different latitudes with the part where you go right over the Great Red Spot and see if it looks any different. We’ll look several hundred kilometers down in this first pass.” During future passes over the Great Red Spot, Bolton said Juno will map out the gravitational field below and around the storm to find out if there might be a “blob of mass” far below the cloud tops that could play a role in the storm’s persistence. “We will not look at that on this flyby but some future one,” Bolton said. “The first (pass) is just look remotely, we’ll see down a few hundred kilometers. … We’ll sort of just investigate how does the veneer of Jupiter match with what’s underneath. “We’ll also see the dynamics and the sheer beauty of the Great Red Spot for the first time,” he added. “We’ll search for lightning, signals of maybe water clouds or ammonia ice coming up through this region, we just don’t know what to expect. And one of the things I’ve learned from Juno already, even if I thought I knew what to expect, don’t believe it too much.” https://spaceflightnow.com/2017/07/12/first-images-of-jupiters-great-red-spot-reach-earth/
  2. Salam aleykum, I have heard from different hadiths that the earth/dust of Karbala cures every aliment except deadly ones and I do believe that every earth/place has its own energy which affects the people living there. Well, I had an idea in mind and I wanted to see if its advisable or something that should be refrained from. I think all of my turbahs are from Karbala soil and after I have used them for some time they get dirty, I usually take a knife and scrape off the dirty top layer of the turbah, the "dirty" layer is still mixed with large amounts of Karbala soil. So I was thinking: is it allowed to mix this earth with planting earth in a pot and then for example grow herbs or vegetables from that mixed earth? That way the fruit of such earth is grown on/from Karbala soil and should contain the blessings of it the way I see it. Is it okay to do this and has anyone done it before/know if the fruits has the benefits of the earth?
  3. Ha, just kidding... But, there is evidence for local, large floods. While the majority of change might occur through gradual deposition, erosion and orogenesis (among other processes), there is still room for floods, and evidence for floods. Even very large ones.

  5. In Islamic tradition it is the site where Adam fell to earth and where his footprint can be found https://youtu.be/AA8kzXDW4xk Adam's Peak or Seri Pada in Sirilanka which in Buddhist tradition is held to be the footprint of the Buddha, in Hindu tradition that of Shiva and in Islamic and Christiantradition that of Adam, The footstep is covered by a handsome roof, and is guarded by the priests of a rich monastery half-way up the mountain, who maintain a shrine on the summit of the peak." And as mentioned in the Islamic history, Adam A.S fell on Serendib Mount in Sirilanka , and Eve (Hawa A.S) fell on Al-Marwa in Mecca, while the Satan was dropped in the lowest point on earth, a salty valley in Basra/ Iraq
  6. Hi, I am looking for commentary from the Imams (3leihum essalam) about any Qur'anic verse pertaining to the shape of the earth, OR general consul about this topic. Admittedly, I have searched on this site but haven't found great success in retrieving the verbatim words of the Imams (as) with respect to this subject. I know there are a lot of Shi3a hadith where various speakers would ask the Imams (as) to interpret the ayah, so here are some for which I would like an interpretation. 2:22 13:3 15:19 16:15 20:53 22:65 27:61 30:25 31:10 35:41 40:64 43:10 50:6-7 51:48 55:10 67:3-5 71:15-20 78:6-7 79:27-30 88:20 91:5-6 I am looking for sources/ citations from verified Shi3a texts (elKafi, etc). Any help you could give me would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
  7. Dr. Abdul Basit Muhammad, President of the scientific complex in the Holy Quran in Egypt, said that the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) conceals a scientific fact of Laylat Al-Qadr. He pointed out the failure of wealthy Arabs to take the necessary steps to publish this case around the world. According to Muhammad, during Laylat Al-Qadr, the temperature is moderate; direct sun beam doesn’t hit the Earth directly. He also explains the scientific fact that 10 thousand stars and 20 thousand meteors hit Earth every day, except in Laylat Al-Qadr which witnesses no beams or any colllisions with any stars or meteors. This was discovered by NASA 10 years ago, but they refused to spread it in order to prevent non-Muslims to convert to Islam, quoted by the words of a NASA scientist, Karnar, and reported by the Egyptian "Delegation" newspaper. Karnar, Christian NASA scientist, announced his convert to Islam which led to the loss of his job at NASA. Note: We are the International Media Unit in the holy shrine of Imam Hussain.

  8. Here is the translation of Qunut, according to the office of Ayatollah Sitani: La ilaha illallahul Halimul Karim (There is none worth worshipping but Allah Who is Forbearing and Generous). La ilaha illallahul 'Aliyyul 'Adhim (There is none worth worshipping but Allah Who is Eminent and Great). Subhanallahi Rabbis samawatis sab' wa Rabbil aradhinas sab' (Glory be to Allah, Who is the Sustainer of the seven heavens and of the seven earth). Wama fi hinna wama bayna hunna, wa Rabbil 'arshil 'adhim (And Who is the Sustainer of all the things in them, and between them, and Who is the Lord of the great 'Arsh (Divine Power)) Wal hamdu lillahi Rabbil Aalamin (And all praise for Allah, the Sustainer of the worlds). I've highlighted it and increased the font size so you can see where it says "seven earth", but what is it? I know there are seven levels of heaven but what does seven earth mean? Sorry about how messy it looks, I tried to put the translation below the transliteration but it doesn't seem to stick the the post that I preview
  9. Make sure you do it.
