SPIRIT UPDATE: Spirit Begins First Interplanetary Layer-by-Layer Soil
Analysis - sol 828-834, May 05, 2006:
Spirit is healthy and continuing to make progress on the rover's winter campaign of scientific experiments. This week Spirit continued work on the full-color, 360-degree "McMurdo panorama." The finished panorama will combine 27 columns of images. Scientists anticipate that Spirit will have finished collecting the first 10 of those columns by Martian day, or sol, 834 (May 8, 2006). Spirit also continued studies of two soil targets nicknamed "Progress" and "Halley."
A winter soil analysis experiment will involve a multi-step process of removing the Moessbauer spectrometer from the target, flipping the wrist joint at the end of the robotic arm to put it in a better position for exchanging tools, re-touching the target with the Moessbauer to confirm precise placement, and exchanging tools from the Moessbauer spectrometer to the rock abrasion tool. Using the brush at the end of the rock abrasion tool, Spirit will remove a layer of soil up to 1 millimeter thick (the thickness of a dime). During brushing, the rover will take a movie of the procedure with the right lens of the hazard-avoidance camera. After the brushing, the rover will acquire a microscopic image of the freshly exposed surface as well as a color image using all 13 filters of the panoramic camera. The rover will then start the process again and remove another layer of soil.
Spirit is also poised to begin a five-month, remote, photometric study of seasonal changes in surface properties of soil exposed in the rover's tracks.
As the newly arrived Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter continues the aerobraking phase of its mission (using friction from the Martian atmosphere to refine its orbit), high-frequency X-band communications directly between Spirit and Earth will not always be available. On sol 830 (May 4, 2006), NASA's Odyssey spacecraft began transmitting communications to Spirit at UHF frequencies.
Sol-by-sol summary
Sol 828 (May 2, 2006): Spirit conducted remote sensing and completed acquisition of column 8 of the McMurdo panorama.
Sol 829: Spirit conducted a third day of Moessbauer spectrometry of the Progress soil target, for a total of 69 hours of analysis of the target with the instrument.
Sol 830: Spirit began progressive brushing of loose soil for the first time and collected microscopic images.
Sol 831: Spirit conducted remote sensing, acquired column 9 of the McMurdo pan, and completed an 18-hour analysis of Progress with the alpha particle X-ray spectrometer.
Sol 832: Plans called for Spirit to acquire microscopic images of Halley.
Sol 833: Plans called for Spirit to conduct remote sensing, acquire column 10 of the McMurdo pan, and complete a second 18-hour study of Progress with the alpha particle X-ray spectrometer.
Sol 834 (May 8, 2006): Plans called for Spirit to continue remote sensing studies and begin monitoring changes in surface properties of soil exposed in the rover's tracks.
Odometry:
As of sol 831 (May 5, 2006), Spirit's total odometry remained at 6,876.18 meters (4.27 miles).

White hole research update.
A question arised weather it is possible to safely enter a white hole located in the center of the Spiral Galaxy like the Milky Way. Currently scientists estimate that there is a massive black hole located in there.
However after analysis of swirling hurricane systems and the resemblances of spiral galaxies in their shapes, I have discovered that an opening may exists there which may be a white hole and takes shape of a hurricane eye.
If the eye is a white hole with repelling antigravitational forces, a place where light cannot enter through its wall, only through its South and Northern entrances, could it be that it is a calm place to enter through its North and South poles?
A speculation, that once inside the eye, there may be a dim light observed, or no light at all, given one is inside a safe high-pressure region white hole.
Only intelligent beings can make it in there.
More to come.

Here is one more finding which show that safe passage into the spiral galaxy eye may be a possible accomplishment.
A recent research showed that no X-rays are arriving from the nucleus of a quasar, contradicting predictions that the presence of a super-massive black hole should reside there. One could sarcastically joke that instead a white hole resides there in reality, contradicting astrophysicists who are near certain that a black hole must exist there.

In other words, the way things appear in regards to the laser-like feature of quasars, is that nothing can enter a black hole, not even light, but once inside the eye, the situation is gravitationally calm. Different X-Rays (not X-Rays related to black-holes) are produced with electron jets when debris {suns, gasses} washes up and out from inside along the highly charged magnetic wall of the eye in a magnetically spiraling fashion).

Reference: Magnmetic polarization is not along the center of jets as priorly thought, but along an open circular region.

This again shows, that there is an opening in the spiral galaxy nucleus.

(I may have offered one false interpretation that quasars appear bright only when facing Earth head on with their galactic centers. I need to do more research on confirming that.)

Maybe not. The current of the ocean brings non-intelligent life into all the nooks and crevaces in the ocean...
Sometimes into volcanic vents.. and the life dies.
Why would you want to enter the "white hole", and what would you find there besides light/no light. Absence of matter? Absence of time? A different time? A guy sitting at a typewriter writing a script?

In there, actually a creature called the Coal Beast.
Coal beast, or coal God, the God of heat, he collects sun cores in there. Sun cores provide nuclear energy, and by taking it the Sun turns into a red giant. He leaves planets without sun cores, and tests their intelligence if they can send representatives into the white hole to get the sun core back. If not, they are either fried by the growing reg giant, or freeze to death. Time is of essence to get the core back to where it was. A test of intelligence.

Do not anger the coal god. His skin is made of coal and beams of red light.
Jean-Luk heads the enterprize, on board Steven Hawkings. A Japanese hitch hiker arrives to the White Hole to take photos, he heard of the event of Jean-Luk and the world's smartest man, Steven Hawkings negotiating with the coal beast for the return of the Sun's core. Jean-Luk is very polite and diplomatic, the coal beast sits on a dark planet alone, he is 20 foot tall and 20 foot wide but also a shape shifter.
The coal beast arrived to Earth because Jordi discovered him once on a Moon, tried to establish contact but the coal beast was just ignoring him and blew fire with few loud words.
After Jordi left the moon with not much progress in establishing communication with the coal beast, Jordi sat down and wrote up a log on his findings.
While the Enterprize was in orbit around the moon, the coal beast stimulated by Jordi's words decided to visit Earth. It lifted into the air, and flew by the Starship Enterprize, and set corse toward Earth. The starship followed him.
Just as the coal beast formed a worm hole toward Earth, a Borg ship appeared and the coal beast blew a wave that tore it to bits and pieces, then the coal beast entered the worm-hole.
The starship enterprize followed as they detected that the wormhole is heading toward Earth.
But in the worm hole, they experienced a distortion and popped out in another time and not where the coal beast exited the worm hole.
The coal beast landed in the Florida swamps, and shapeshifted to a fisherman's body who happened to walk near by. The coal beast attacked by three aligators tore them apart and was walking near the swamps, beaming red light.
Needless to say, Jean Luk and the Enterprize soon find themselves at the core of the Milky Way Galaxy, inside a white hole, negotiationg with the coal beast for the return of the Sun's core.

He took it. And returned it with a flash. And I spoiled the end. Well what do you expect? Its Star Trek, the good guys win. The Sun shrunk back to its normal size, heat returned to normal, and people were celebrating on Earth, and Jean Luk and Steven Hawkings, and the Japanese hitchhiker who was Michio Kaku received medals for saving Earth, and Jean Luk returned to his retirement location, after making it into a white hole that is located in the center of our Galaxy.

Ok... if intelligence is able to return to the white hole (center of the galaxy?) and get the sun core back for planet earth, what do we do with it? Put it back into our earth, and turn the earth into a sun?
What is the rewared for retrieval of the core? The ability to create a sun when our own burns out?
