The Long, Strange Journey of Liberty Bell 7

Grissom-Liberty-Bell-7July 21, 1961 – NASA prepares for their second manned launch, a 15-minute suborbital shot designed to place astronaut Gus Grissom a hundred miles above the surface of the earth.

Everything went perfectly as space capsule “Liberty Bell 7”atop the Mercury-Redstone 4 rocket lifted off from Cape Canaveral, Florida and began her three hundred mile flight eastward over the Atlantic. Grissom initiated his reentry sequence at 120 miles altitude, sending the lone capsule plummeting back towards earth. Parachutes deployed at 21,000 feet, slowing the spacecraft in preparation for oceanic splashdown.

Jupiter-sized Sunspot a Flare Threat - Biggest Sunspot of 2017 Facing Earth

Sunspot AR2665 has grown into a behemoth almost as wide as the planet Jupiter. Stretching more than 125,000 km from end to end and containing dozens of dark cores, the active region is an now easy target for backyard solar telescopes. http://spaceweathergallery.com/

This is the biggest sunspot of 2017 so far.

Large sunspot 2665 continues to evolve in the southeast quadrant and has produced a number of minor C-Flares and one low level M-Flare so far. The active region has a beta-gamma magnetic configuration and could produce additional moderate M-Flares during the next 24 hours. An eruptive flare at this point could be Earth directed as the rotation now has the sunspot almost directly facing our planet.

The Universe itself may be unnatural If we're finely tuned, what does that mean?
