Russians Develop Hardware For Forecasting Earthquakes From Space

How will the Vsplesk Experiment help scientific research throughout the world?

 

 

According to news sources, Russian crew members of the International Space Station (ISS) have already installed the necessary hardware and scientific equipment to discover how effectively seismic events can be detected by charged particle bursts in the near Earth-space environment. It is believed that these bursts are related to various geophysical processes, although the experiment is focusing on distinguishing earthquake precursors.

Are other countries involved in studying the relationship between earthquakes and the Earth’s ionosphere?


Various countries have been studying this important connection in several stages over the last few years. Since 2001, experimental spacecraft known as the COMPASS (Complex Orbital Magneto-Plasma-Autonomous Small Satellite) created in Russia, Hungary, Greece, the Ukraine and Poland was unable to complete the research mission because of problems with the hardware equipment. The satellite did manage, however, to collect some helpful earthquake-predicting data. Russian scientists installed research hardware on the Resurs DK space vehicle (Arina) that was launched two years ago. This allowed for accurate particle detection being performed from different sites of near-Earth space.

Will the world ever be able to get out of the way of earthquakes and their subsequent destruction?


Monitoring seismic activities is only one small part of understanding the connections between the lithosphere, lower atmosphere and ionosphere. Due to the fact that electric fields of some intensity can precede volcanic eruptions, powerful atmospheric fronts and other massive natural disasters, this system can save lives and money as an effective tool for disaster prevention.

Time will tell.

In the meantime if something shakes near where you are standing, don’t be a dope and get out of the way!

Am I the only here who thinks all these so called Russian invention "news" seem to lack quite a bit of substance? Mostly claims of this and that but nothing really informative. Can I predict the person responsible for these Russian "reports" will tell us about a Russian claim of cold fusion soon?

This is not to say I have anything against Russia or their people, just against whomever is doing those write ups on the amazing things supposedly happening over there which from the details given amount to nothing more than gossip and wishful thinking.

There are quite a bit of innovative products being produced in this country so let's keep it professional and show us a working prototype or some real pictures and get rid of this speculative garbage.

As the person responsible for these posts, I can tell you that I have no plans for writing a piece about cold fusion. You are cerrtainly entitled to your opinion and in keeping with your opinion that these posts are "garbage" to use your words, please do me a favor and don't lower yourself to read them anymore.

I have to agree with the first post.

I have been visiting this website for quite some time now, and this post had done it for me. Most of these posts are not written well, don't have enough data or evidence. It would be great if we could get back to some more informative style of writing thanks. Alternative is that I might just take the bookmark off.
