OPPORTUNITY UPDATE: Dug Into Loose Soil Again - sol 825-834, May 30,
2006:
Opportunity's wheels dug into loose soil during a drive on sol 833 (May 29, 2006). The drive was planned for about 24 meters (79 feet) but resulted in only 1.5 meters (5 feet) of forward progress. The flight team directed Opportunity on sol 834 to take images for studying the situation and planning a way to drive out of the loose material. Preliminary assessment indicates the wheels are not buried as deeply as when Opportunity's wheels become embedded in "Purgatory Dune" on sol 446. An escape drive may be attempted within a few days. The sol 833 drive was planned to stay in a trough between crests of ripples. Neither the trough nor the ripples were considered wheel-embedding hazards.
During the preceding eight sols, Opportunity executed both a robotic arm campaign and two more drives toward "Victoria Crater." The rover used its microscopic imager, alpha particle X-ray spectrometer, and Moessbaeur spectrometer on the soil target "Alamogordo Creek."
As Opportunity eases its way into the Martian winter season, rover planners have started to target energy-rich "lily pads" (regions with a northerly tilt) at the end of each drive. This way, planners can maximize the amount of sun on Opportunity's solar arrays.
Sol-by-sol summaries:
Sol 825 (May 20): The rover used its microscopic imager and alpha particle X-ray spectrometer, and did targeted remote sensing.
Sol 826: Opportunity conducted targeted remote sensing, used its microscopic imager and did a Moessbauer spectrometer integration.
Sol 827: Opportunity did targeted remote sensing and continued the Moessbauer integration.
Sol 828: The rover drove 39.07 meters (128 feet) and did untargeted remote sensing.
Sol 829: Opportunity conducted untargeted remote sensing.
Sol 830: The rover drove about 28 meters (92 feet) and conducted untargeted remote sensing.
Sols 831 and 832: Opportunity did untargeted remote sensing on both of these sols.
Sol 833: Opportunity's wheels became partly buried in the loose soil during a drive that was intended to cover about 24 meters (79 feet).
Sol 834 (May 30): The plan for this sol included imaging to aid planning for a drive to get out of the loose material.
Odometry total as of Sol 828 (May 23): 7,940.57 meters (4.93 miles)

Status: Journey through the white hole.
Drakula ends up traveling through the white hole.
Is there a white hole in the center of our galaxy, in a place where scientists currently believe to have a super-massive black hole? The question remains unanswered. The fact that a spiral galaxy swirls with arms similar to hurricane arms suggest the posiblity of a simple eye generated gravitationally, meaning the swirling characteristics refuses matter to collapse into a central solar object. What is analyzed, is the speed of light, that winds are restricted in a hurricane to a few hundred kilometers per hour, and the speed of light seems to be a restriction for cases where energy is stronger and energy resisting (and thus atmospheric) forces are at play due to thresholds. Like electricity, volume does not seem to speed up the velocity of matter, but the energies distribute over large distances due to velocity thresholds. The width of the river grows with energy and not the speed, and such forces oppose the formation of black holes.
In eliptic galaxies recently astronomers found highly turbulant and explosive activities, suggesting the likelyhood of finding black holes there. Until just recently, it was thought that eliptic galaxies are quiet. My point is, that in regions where mass accumulates to otherwise form a black hole based on current theories, instead a turbulant (cloud stormlike) conditions develop in space. Matter breaks down into dust and gasses, and act as real atmospheric storms would, and not form a collapsed star. These forces arise from a) speed threshold and thus anti-gravitational forces arise where the river of matter widens when moving together in a wide current. b) if not forming a river-flow, matter becomes turbulant and explosive. The categories move from small clouds to hurricanes, and to storms larger than hurricanes. c) matter near event horizon is accelerated to such degrees in such strong gravitational fields that explosive conditions develop.
So the question remains: Just because there is no black hole as priorly thought could there be a white hole there because: a) no matter can enter the eye, not even light due to the mass flow of gravitational matter and energies generating the rotation around the wall of the eye, and if so, only near the wall of the eye can light escape gravitationally. If there is a white hole, it would be separated by a black hole's gravitational event horizon, but a place which A) forbids matter to enter. B) keeps matter out, thus not letting light in only along two North and south poles with immense laser-like energies. b) there are scientific evidences which prove the likely eye-like shape in the galaxy nucleus, from the measurement of the shape of the magnetic fields of jets in quasars, to the recent finding that no X-Rays were emitted from a quasar's active nucleus. Current black hole theories suggest that massive amount of X-Rays should be emitted from the center of highly active spiral galactic nuclei, where calculations correspond with the likelyhood of black holes there.
It would mean, that the crew with Drakula would need to cross and face head on the central torus, and in that location they should not see light arriving from the nucleus, and have a nice calm journey through the center of the galaxy, a place shielded from light and X-Rays. Even if the galaxy becomes active, the center should be as peaceful as a hurricane eye.
Scientists currently hold that in the center of the Milky Way there is a super-massive black hole. This journey is based on the idea that there may be a peaceful white hole there, suitable for travel one day by humans (and vampires).

However: Looking at a larger picture, and including findings in regards
to dark matter energies and cosmic expansions, there is also a suggestion that matter near event horizons converts to space, just as matter can arise from dark energies in the deep vaccum lacking gravitational fields. In such cases there would not be a white hole in the nucleus of a spiral galaxy, but a calm zone lacking if not all gravitational curvatures, a place that is more like an ordinary hurricane center, and not a solar object in any regard, but a dust and gas storm. But if the conditions are so ordinary (also think that in the center of a planet there is no gravitation, and the center of the galaxy is such a place, weak gravitationally; the closer to the nucleus, the weaker the gravity), then why is there an *immense* beam of light being emitted from the galaxy nucleus toward the North and South directions. In fact, if one of these galaxies would point their nucleus straight toward Earth, the light beam from the galaxy nucleus would appear so bright, that the light outshines all of the galaxy's light combined. These are the mysterious objects called quasars which scientists struggled for decades to explain, and recently they have discovered that these very bright objects in space are indeed galaxies.
My theory suggests that gravity weakens in the center of the galaxy, but paradoxically strengthens in the deep vaccum of space, simply drawing a vector between a weaker gravitational galaxy center, the galaxy's outer ring, and deep space.

Just consider the implications of the differences I use to describe the environment of the galaxy nucleus: current theories suggest that a super-massive black hole sucks everything in in the center of the galaxy. I talk of no such thing. My advancement exists in this regard.
In the center of the galaxy, gravitational fields are weak. The gravitational fields there are generated by the entire galaxy, just as the energy of the storm is responsible for the hurricane's eye formation. The energy of the galaxy should form an eye, an energy field consisiting of a calm central region, surrounded by the highly energetic and explosive wall of the eye consisting of dust and gass, but not a dense object as the surface of the Sun would be, but an explosive region similar to turbulances in storm clouds. See the nucleus in this galaxy taking a huge eye formation.

If everything is ok the team with Drakula on board will enter this central region head on (appearing as a very bright region from this angle), and successfully pass through this central region without being fried with a Sun burn or X-Rays or jets or other dense and very hot bursts of matter, and of course, not to mention being such up by a black hole.

Perhaps a galaxy forms as a storm, out of currents of hot and cold fronts, a place where matter acts as humidity, merely something which exists, scattered, but here accumulates as high energies of heat. A hurricane, once it started it feeds off of its own energy, it lives, and eventurally dies off and scatters into small elliptic clouds as it loses energy.

The only reason I speculate on this is to find out if there is a white hole in the nucleus instead of the black one. I have the gut feeling that neither a white or black hole is to be found in the galaxy nucleus, that in reality event horizons acceleratre matter to turbulant and explosive conditions, which with the rise of the solar (gravitational) storm form currents (eye) and expand to the spiraling arms. Simple, right?

p.s. Currently the answer remains unanswered.
