Looks like we have another rotation of the rumor in 2011. Check here: cosmic rays entering earth from mars 2011
I just received a forward message from a friend which I instanly recognized to be the same one that i got almost 10 months ago. So was wondering how long does a sms take to rotate around and reappear (well atleast in Pakistan). . . The probably fake message received by me on 26th April, 2010 said:
tonight 1:30 to 4:30 cosmic rays will be entering earth 4rm mars so kindly switch off your mobile phones tonight – nasa bbc news- please pass this message to all your friends for safety
Although i did check the NASA and BBC news last year when i received this message but this time i am sure it’s fake because it’s thesame fake message about these cosmic radiations coming back to me after God knows how many cycles.
Umm.. wait a second, lemme check NASA and BBC news . . .
Ok i am back . . . and well i didn’t see any such news there! it’s all just fake and a rumor!
Let me tell you some thing about cosmic rays btw! They are emitted from stars which have their own light. Mars reflect sun’s light (although some cosmic rays too). Almost 90% of all the incoming cosmic ray particles are simple protons, with nearly 10% being helium nuclei (alpha particles), and slightly under 1% are heavier elements, electrons (beta particles), or gamma ray photons.
Anyway, there is no such harm imho! So keep using your cell phones! these cellular companies need some money to survive!
I don’t know why people start circulating these sort of panic messages disturbing everyone’s every day life and routine!
