On Monday, scientists from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab launched an experiment toward the International Space Station, the massive floating space station orbiting our planet.
Inside an experiment to take place aboard the space station the temperature will reportedly reach 10 billion times colder than the vacuum of space itself. It is called the Cold Atom Laboratory, an entire physics research “facility” as large as an ice chest, that will reportedly use lasers and magnets to cool down clouds of atoms to the coldest possible temperature: almost absolute zero, the lowest temperature that scientists believe is physically possible. This CAL experiment has been planned since 2012, and it will go all the way into the 2020’s.
A number of different experiments are aboard the periodical cargo launch to the International Space Station, which occurred on Sunday.
Without even using astronauts to perform the experiments in Earth’s orbit, researchers will have the ability to remotely conduct experiments within this box of lasers to reduce the temperature and make observations from a distance.
Researchers will be remotely cooling down clouds of atoms in a box of lasers and magnets, ultracooling them to use their term, to nearly absolute zero. Absolute zero is a scientific measurement equal to minus 459.67 degrees Fahrenheit or minus 273.15 degrees Celsius.
The clouds of atoms are known as the Bose-Einstein condensates or BEC’s. They are tiny clouds of atoms so incredibly cold, they move very slowly.
Earth’s gravity is reportedly a factor that disturbs the ability for this experiment to work. Under the gravity of planet Earth, these atoms in what are known as freely evolving BECs can’t properly be slowed down for a long enough interval of time for observation. Physicists can’t quite observe the particles for longer than a mere fraction of a second under Earth’s gravity, so the quantum characteristics of the super cold molecules are hardly useful for observation.
A microgravity environment is how scientists describe the space station that this experiment will reportedly function on. Without the gravity of planet Earth, for some reason these magnets and lasers will cool down the clouds of atoms. It is unclear exactly what kind of magnets and lasers these are.
The lasers, whatever they are, are the main factor in slowing down the atoms, cooling them all the way down to “like one-tenth of a billion of a degree above absolute zero,” according to the CAL project manager Robert Shotwell, also an engineer at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
After the atoms are cooled, the CAL box will automatically place them into what they call weak magnetic traps, where researchers can remotely study the atoms. From a variety of quantum interactions and states, they will be able to study.
“Studying these hypercold atoms could reshape our understanding of matter and the fundamental nature of gravity,” Robert Thompson, a JPL CAL scientist said in a statement. “The experiments we’ll do with the Cold Atom Lab will give us insight into gravity and dark energy — some of the most pervasive forces in the universe.”
Every single thing NASA says should be taken with a grain of salt by the way, from the logical processes involved with their announcements to the very intentions of their experiments.
Oddly enough, this same Jet Propulsion Laboratory in California at Cal-Tech was founded by Aleister Crowley’s personal friend, the occultist and rocket scientist Jack Parsons.
He was like the father of NASA. There’s some strange roots here, regardless of if people believe the founder of this organization has any relation to what goes on today.
Some people have long suspected that efforts to understand quantum physics, particularly the experiments at CERN, are rooted in a negative, dark sort of spiritual quest to understand or even break apart the laws of physics on behalf of powerful people who have goals we don’t even understand. Not to say that this would actually work, there is just evidence to suggest that people in high places have very strange beliefs.
Despite how strange it may sound, that is theorizing about some occult agenda to perform quantum physics experiments or tear a hole in the veil of this dimension, why is it crazy to believe that wealthy people who are already kind of demonstrably crazy, could hold these occult beliefs? Wealthy people do drive the direction of research, and the true force guiding these experiments is probably not known. For all we know, some old billionaire could be directing research from a mansion in Switzerland.
Every possible motive should be examined for any activity of NASA, it is an agency of the US government with strong, tangible ties to people that hold very strange beliefs.
