Direct imaging discovery of a companion to 51 Eridani

Astronomers have found the smallest planet outside this solar system yet to be directly photographed by a telescope on Earth, a methane-shrouded gas giant much like a young Jupiter. The exoplanet 51 Eridani b orbits the ~20 Myr old F0 star 29.4±0.3 parsecs from Earth in a planetary system that may be much like Earth’s own solar system. The discovery could shed light on how our solar system formed, scientists added. Over the last 20 years, astronomers have confirmed the existence of more than 1,800 exoplanets, or alien planets around other stars. Many of these worlds are quite unlike any planets in Earth’s solar system. For example, so-called “hot Jupiters” are gas giants that orbit their host stars more closely than Mercury does the sun.  More than 1,000 of the exoplanets confirmed to date were discovered by NASA’s Kepler Space Telescope. Kepler indirectly finds planets by detecting a loss of starlight…

    “It is difficult to believe that any Iranian, after watching what Washington-organized protests have done to Honduras, Libya, Ukraine, and Syria, have attempted to do to Iran in 2009, and is attempting to do today to Venezuela, could possibly in good faith go out into the streets against their own government.”

    This “perturber” — what astronomers now call Planet 9 — is believed to be about 10 times more massive than Earth.

    Newspeak has become the dominant culture and TV is the chief vehicle for spreading the lies and deceit.

    Jack Blood provides a succinct summary in, TV = Mind Control (Why do you think they call it Programming?)

    “Once again the system is at work, knowing how easy it is to control the minds of a dumbed down population that has been well trained, and some might say socially engineered, to never question authority, never think outside the box, never seek accountability and never think for itself. Easily manipulated, millions of people are conditioned to believe, from a very early age, that anything emanating from television is sacrosanct. Thus, everything they watch is reality and anything they hear is truth. Anchors and reporters become trusted personalities voicing reticent opinions whose veracity are seldom, if ever, questioned.

    The Establishment has perfected its machination of propaganda, creating the realities it wants into society, forming whatever truth that will be of the greatest benefit, not to society, but to itself. Whatever reality it wants to create and disseminate is quickly absorbed by a population eager to feed off the mammary glands of television. The Establishment, the corporate world and government have for years told us how and what to think, how to act, who to obey and where to follow, condemning our minds to obedience, our lives to conformism and silent acquiescence.”

    Is it not time to make a clean break from this self-induced imprisonment of images and sounds that spills out of the television machine?
