Rambut yang Terus Tumbuh pada Boneka Okiku

0 Comment




Seorang peneliti jepang mengungkapkan bahwa dari hasil uji forensik rambut yang ditumbuhkan boneka ini sama persis dengan rambut pada anak usia 10 tahun.

Nama Okiku ini diambil dari seorang anak yang sedang bermain dengan boneka dengan ukuran tinggi 40 sentimeter, berpakaian kimono dengan mata hitam seperti manik-manik dan rambut yang lebat. Boneka Okiku telah ada di kuil Mannenji di kota Iwamizawa Prefektur Hokkaido) sejak tahun 1938.

Awalnya boneka ini dibeli tahun 1918 oleh seorang pemuda bernama Eikichi Suzuki di sapporo, Di sana ia melihat sebuah boneka cantik Jepang dengan Kimono. Boneka ini dibeli Eikichi untuk adiknya yang berumur 2 tahun yang bernama Okiku, anak ini sangat menyenangi boneka ini dan memainkannya setiap hari.

Tapi sayang, Okiku meninggal tak lama setelah itu karena demam. Kemudian pada saat pemakamannya, Keluarga ingin memasukkan boneka ke dalam peti mati-nya tapi entah mengapa mereka lupa. Keluarga gadis tersebut kemudian menempatkan boneka itu di altar rumah tangga dan berdoa untuk setiap hari dalam rangka memperingati Okiku. Beberapa waktu kemudian, mereka melihat rambut mulai tumbuh.




 Tahun 1938 keluarga Suzuki pindah ke shakalin, boneka okiku akhirnya dititipkan di kuil Mannenji di Hokkaido. Menurut pendeta di kuil itu, boneka tradisional jepang selalu berambut pendek, dia juga membenarkan kalau rambut boneka okiku terus memanjang, walaupun dipotong terus secara berkala, tapi rambutnya tumbuh terus.

Menurut kuil, boneka tradisional awalnya memiliki rambut dipotong pendek, tapi seiring waktu terus bertambah panjang sekitar 25 sentimeter, hingga ke lutut boneka.Meskipun rambut boneka ini dipotong secara berkala , namun menurut cerita rambut tersebut tumbuh lagi.

Menurut pengakuan dari beberapa orang yang pernah melihat boneka Okiku tersebut, di malam hari boneka ini selalu membuka tutup mulutnya seolah meminta makan. Sampai saat ini, belum ditemukan penjelasan logis tentang misteri rambut boneka Okiku ini. Namun dipercaya, roh Okiku masuk dan tinggal di dalam boneka tersebut.

The full moon will prevent this from being a great show this year, but with up to 40 meteors per hour possible, this could still be a good show. Look for the shower radiating from the constellation Leo after midnight.

November 28 - Comet ISON Closest Approach to the Sun. Newly discovered comet ISON will make its closest approach to the Sun on November 28.

In August and September, the comet will begin to be visible in the morning sky in dark locations with telescopes. In October it will start to be visible to the naked eye and will continue to get brighter until November 28. If the comet survives, it will be visible in the early morning and early evening sky and could be nearly as bright as the full Moon. Some astronomers are already calling it the comet of the century.

The gibbous moon could be a problem this year, hiding man of the fainter meteors. But with up to 60 meteors per hour predicted, this should still be a good show. Best viewing is usually to the east after midnight from a dark location.

December 17 - Full Moon. The Moon will be directly opposite the Earth from the Sun and will be fully illuminated as seen from Earth. This phase occurs at 09:28 UTC.

Badai Matahari

0 Comment


Badai matahari adalah kejadian dimana aktivitas matahari berinteraksi dengan medan magnetik bumi. Badai matahari ini berkaitan langsung dengan peristiwa Solar Flare dan CME. Kedua hal itulah yang menyebabkan terjadinya badai matahari

Solar flare adalah ledakan di matahari karena terbukanya salah satu kumparan medan magnet permukaan matahari. Ledakan ini melepaskan partikel berenergi tinggi dan radiasi elektromagnetik pada panjang gelombang sinar-x dan sinar gamma. Partikel berenergi tinggi yang dilepaskan oleh peristiwa solar flare, jika mengarah ke bumi, akan mencapai bumi dalam waktu 1-2 hari. Sedangkan radiasi elektromagnetik energi tingginya, akan mencapai bumi dalam waktu hanya sekitar 8 menit
CME adalah pelepasan material dari korona yang teramati sebagai letupan yang menyembur dari permukaan Matahari. Dalam semburan material korona ini, sekitar 2×1011 – 4×1013 kilogram material dilontarkan dengan energi sebesar 1022 – 6×1024 joule. Material ini dilontarkan dengan kecepatan mulai dari 20 km/s sampai 2000 km/s, dengan rata-rata kecepatan 350 km/s. Untuk mencapai Bumi, dibutuhkan waktu 1-3 hari

video 


Saat terjadi badai matahari, partikel-partikel energetik tadi tidak hanya menghasilkan aurora yang indah yang bisa di amati di lintang tinggi. Tapi bisa memberikan dampak yang relatif lebih besar dan lebih berbahaya. Dampak yang dimaksud antara lain: gangguan pada jaringan listrik karena transformator dalam jaringan listrik akan mengalami kelebihan muatan, gangguan telekomunikasi (merusak satelit, menyebabkan black-out frekuensi HF radio, dll), navigasi, dan menyebabkan korosi pada jaringan pipa bawah tanah


video


Saat ini, Matahari sedang menuju puncak keaktifan dalam siklusnya yang ke-24. Puncak keaktifan Matahari ini diperkirakan terjadi sekitar tahun 2011-2013. Saat puncak keaktifan Matahari pada siklus ke-24 ini, diperkirakan tidak akan jauh berbeda dengan saat puncak keaktifan pada siklus-siklus sebelumnya. Mungkin efeknya akan sedikit lebih besar, tapi ada juga yang menduga akan terjadi hal yang sebaliknya, justru lebih kecil efeknya

Aurora

Aurora adalah fenomena alam yang menyerupai pancaran cahaya yang menyala-nyala pada lapisan ionosfer dari sebuah planet sebagai akibat adanya interaksi antara medan magnetik yang dimiliki planet tersebut dengan partikel bermuatan yang dipancarkan oleh Matahari (angin surya)

Di bumi, aurora terjadi di daerah di sekitar kutub utara dan kutub selatan magnetiknya. Aurora yang terjadi di daerah sebelah Utara dikenal dengan nama Aurora Borealis, yang dinamai bersempena Dewi Fajar Rom, Aurora, dan nama Yunani untuk angin utara, Boreas. Ini karena di Eropa, aurora sering terlihat kemerah-merahan di ufuk utara seolah-olah Matahari akan terbit dari arah tersebut

Aurora borealis selalu terjadi di antara September dan Oktober dan Maret dan April. Fenomena aurora di sebelah Selatan yang dikenal dengan Aurora Australis mempunyai sifat-sifat yang serupa.Tapi kadang-kadang aurora muncul di puncak gunung di iklim tropis

Waiting for you

Waiting for Nothing

0 Comment
Waiting for nothing? Ya, itu yang lagi gue rasain saat ini. Menunggu seseorang yang gue yakin hasilnya pasti nihil dan gatau sampe kapan gue kaya gini. Mengagumi seseorang diam-diam. Mendadak jadi kepo akut dan berubah jadi seorang stalker. Dan semakin hari rasa yang gue rasain ini semakin......♥♥♥♥♥♥ Punya perasaan kaya gini itu rasanya random. Kadang seneng, sedih, nyesek, malu, cemburu, etc. Dan ajaibnya gue masih bertahan


Gue kenal lo. Tapi sebaliknya buat lo, lo gak kenal gue. Bahkan tau gue aja pun engga. Etapi sebenernya gue juga belom bisa dibilang kalo gue udah kenal lo. Gue baru tau nama lo. Baru cukuptau berarti lah ya belom kenal. Apalah itu namanya. Awal gue kenal lo itu dari event pramuka. Lo itu orangnya cuek dingin jutek flat datar dan sejenisnya. Tapi gue pikir kalo udah kenal nanti, gue yakin lo itu orangnya baik asik lucu gokil seru. Seandainya gue bisa kenal lo. Jadi temen aja udah seneng banget. Nanti dari temen baru bertahap;)


Apa harus gue perjuangin rasa ini? Apa perlu gue perjuangin lo? Memperjuangkan sesuatu dan seseorang yang gak perjuangin lo itu rasanya susah banget. Gajelas. Abstrak. Kalo gak balance, bikin hati jadi sakit sendiri. Gue gak maksain rasa ini. Gue cuma bisa tetep berusaha sebisa gue dan terima sama apa yang udah direncanain Tuhan. Kalo emang kita ditakdirin bareng-bareng nantinya, gue percaya Tuhan punya rencana yang indah buat pertemuin kita nanti *think positive
