Alpha

On a whim last night was seeking a particular piece of music remembered from my youth. I have the album on vinyl somewhere – Vangelis, Albedo 0.39

Found it, here used with NASA HD images which I thought others might enjoy too. I’d forgotten it was called “Alpha”

If you’re thinking it was used in Carl Sagan’s series “Cosmos” you’d be right.

And here’s the Cosmos theme. Take a few minutes of tranquility…

    Thanks, Verity.

    In late 1983, the scientific community was almost forced to face reality. The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences intervened and gave a Nobel Prize for Physics to two scientists who instead promoted Fred Hoyle’s model of Hydrogen-filled stars.

  2. @omanuel,
    You said:
    “Fear of nuclear annihilation and remorse for killing hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians
    drove world leaders and leaders of the scientific community to unite nations on 24 Oct 1945 and
    to misrepresent the source of energy released by three atomic bombs on 6, 9 and 12 Aug 1945:”

    I can’t find any information about the atomic bomb on August 12. Where was it dropped?

      It was apparently dropped off the east coast of Konan, Korea about dawn on the morning of 12 Aug 1945.

      Japan was forced to close and move their facility for A-bomb production in Nogoya, Japan to Konan, Korea because General Curtis LeMay firebombed Nogoya, Japan.

      Japan might have won WWII if not for General LeMay’s actions. This information was leaked and published in the Atlanta Constitution in 1946.
