EISCAT, IONOSPHERIC HEATERS, AND THE PLANET-SIZED LABORATORYSeptember 1, 2013
This one came to me from Ms. P.H., a regular reader and contributor of articles here, and it is one of those things that not to comment about would be akin to a dereliction of duty, or a willful shirking of the responsibility to the public good. The article here constitutes an abstract of Russian scientists referring to experiments they have been conducting with ionospheric heaters, specifically the Sura facility east of the Russian city of Nizhniy Novgorod (formerly known as Gorky, population 1,250,000). We'll get back to the Sura facility in a moment. For now, though it's a bit technical, have a look at this abstract:
Note first of all that this is at a symposium for Europe's version of HAARP(The High Altitude Auroral Research Project), based in Norway. And by way of more background context, we need also to recall the Kardashev civilization classification scheme, and the "Farrell corollaries" that I've been developing in Covert Wars and Breakaway Civilizations and Covert Wars and The Clash of Civilizaations. Nicolai Kardashev (b. 1932) is a Russian astronomer who classified civilization types based on their energy requirements. A Class I civilization requires the energy of an entire planet, a Class II civilization that of an entire star, and a Class III civilization that of an entire galaxy. Obviously, our own civilization is not even Class I, though some - myself among them - might argue that it is on the cusp of becoming a Class I type.
However, in my "corollaries" to this scheme, I have offered the suggestion that there may be another way to view it: a Class I civilization would be one having the ability to manipulate systems on a planetary scale, a Class II on a stellar scale, and a Class III on a galactic scale. Thus, a civilization might be Class I or II in terms of its ability to manipulate systems of planetary or stellar scale, but still Class 0 in terms of its energy requirements.
With that in mind, ponder the last paragraph of the abstract again:
"The travelling ionospheric disturbances over Kharkiv were probably caused by the internal gravity waves generated in the heated region of ionospheric plasma and ducted in the thermospheric waveguide. Long - term, regular measurements are needed to more accurately separate the effects of ionosphere heating from those caused by naturaldrivers."
