A giant gas cloud is on collision course with the black hole in the centre of our galaxy in 2013. This is a unique opportunity to observe how a super massive black hole sucks in material, in real time. More information on: http://www.youris.com/Environment/Space/
Since it’s discovery about 7 years ago, this giant gas cloud has sped up substantially as it nears Galactic center. It’s shape has become distorted as well.
The 2nd video features the Today show report on the gamma ray burst that was captured on film. Host Dara Brown interviews Dr. Paul LaViolette, who has proposed the “Galactic Superwave” theory, which contends that this type of burst from the core of our galaxy can disturb our sun and solar system as it disperses throughout our galaxy. Here’s more from the video uploader’s description:
Nov. 12, 2010: TODAYshow.com’s Dara Brown talks with Dr. Paul LaViolette
about new NASA images of the Fermi bubbles, an immense outpouring
of cosmic ray energy seen at the Milky Way’s center.
The name “Galactic superwave” was first coined by Paul LaViolette and appeared for the first time in his doctoral thesis published in 1983. Some internet webpages use the term “Galactic tsunami”. This is another word sometimes used for the Galactic superwave.
LaViolette informed Congress about the phenomenon as early as 1984; see letter from Senator Packwood to the National Science Foundation.

A novel by David Souers entitled “Galactic Tsunami” was inspired from Paul LaViolette’s book Earth Under Fire.
Earth Under Fire
An investigation of the connection between ancient world catastrophe myths and modern scientific evidence of a galactic destruction cycle. * Provides scientific evidence of past Earth-wide catastrophes and their galactic superwave origins. * Decodes the ancient message encrypted in the zodiac constellations and symbolism of the Sphinx. * Explains the memorial significance of the Orion constellation, the Pleiadian rites, and the Minoan bull-leaping ceremony. * Compiles myths and legends from all over the world relating the occurrence of a past cataclysm. * Describes what caused the mammoths to suddenly die and freeze in the Arctic and what caused the extinction of the ice age mammals. * Deciphers the Galactic constellation lore of the South American Barasana Indians. * Explains what Plato’s allegorical story of Atlantis and the Flood was really trying to convey. * Reviews evidence buried deep in the Earth’s polar ice record and from the Moon and Mars that proves that this cosmic onslaught really occurred. * Describes how explosions of our Galaxy’s core pose a threat to humanity in the future.
