LIGHTFOOT, P N, L/Cpl, Royal Signals(AFM, Lance Corporal 24442111, Paul Neville Lightfoot, Royal Signals, died 19th May 1982 aged 21)..Parent unit 11th Signal Regiment,Royal Corps of Signals born 14.1.1961 son of Terry Lightfoot joined SAS Signals October 1979 lost in Sea King crash-South Atlantic United States division includes 8 states and 1 district..The South Atlantic Anomaly (SAA) is an area where the Earth's inner Van Allen radiation belt comes closest to the Earth's surface dipping down to an altitude of 200 km (124 mi). This leads to an increased flux of energetic particles in this region and exposes orbiting satellites to higher-than-usual levels of radiation. The effect is caused by the non-concentricity of the Earth and its magnetic dipole, and the SAA is the near-Earth region where the Earth's magnetic field is weakest relative to an idealized Earth-centered dipole field..The term comes from the Greek δίς (dis), "twice" and πόλος (pòlos), "axis"..A physical dipole consists of 2 EQual and OPposite point charges: in the literal sense,2 poles.. Its field at large distances (i.e., distances large in comparison to the separation of the poles) depends almost entirely on the dipole moment as defined above. A point (electric) dipole is the limit obtained by letting the separation tend to 0 while keeping the dipole moment fixed..The South Atlantic Anomaly is of great significance to astronomical satellites and other spacecraft that orbit the Earth at several hundred kilometers altitude; these orbits take satellites through the anomaly periodically, exposing them to several minutes of strong radiation, caused by the trapped protons in the inner Van Allen belt....

Lightfoot House (19 North Bailey, Durham, directly across the road from Durham Cathedral) is one of the buildings that comprise St Chad's College, Durham University, England.."Once she presented a piece of wire about a foot long, and explained that it represented a nanosecond, since it was the maximum distance electricity could travel in wire in one-billionth of a second.. She often contrasted this nanosecond with a microsecond - a coil of wire nearly a thousand feet long - as she encouraged programmers not to waste even a microsecond"..Sammy Lightfoot is a 1983 computer game by Sierra On-line..The PAMELA X-periment, while passing through the SAA, detected antiproton levels that were orders of magnitude higher than those Xpected from normal particle decay.. This suggests the Van Allen belt confines antiparticles produced by the interaction of the Earth's upper atmosphere with cosmic rays..NASA has reported that modern laptops have crashed when space shuttle flights passed through the anomaly.. In October 2012, the SpaceX CRS-1 Dragon spacecraft attached to the International Space Station experienced a transient problem as it passed through the anomaly... A human body.. Muscles, brain.. Operates in a series of minute electrical charges flowing around the complex of low voltage electrical circuits.. The nervous system. Sometimes the electrical balance is disturbed.. Imagine the situation where for some reason the balance swings violently off centre. The body becomes supercharged. A thunder cloud before a storm. If such a charged being could exist, it may be able to draw on all the primitive forces of the universe. Attract them to itself. Space, time, light, electrical potential, energy. They're all related!Imagine the result...
