Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope astronomers report evidence of a diffuse gamma ray emission excess that is centered on the Galactic center and extends radially outwards in all directions for a distance of about 5000 light years before disappearing below the background threshold level.  When astronomers carefully subtract all known gamma-ray sources from the telescope’s large array image of the galactic center, a patch of leftover emission remains.  This excess appears most prominent at energies between 1 and 3 billion electron volts (GeV) — energies roughly a billion times greater than those of visible light photons.

This is excellent proof of the existence of superwaves.  In 1997, well before the discovery of the gamma ray bubbles, the EGRET Gamma Ray Telescope reported the discovery of a diffuse gamma ray emission surrounding the Milky Way and extending to high latitudes above and below the galactic plane.  The discovery was considered a mystery because it could not be contributed by cosmic rays from known point sources in the Galaxy.  In the 1998 update to my dissertation Galactic Superwaves and their Impact on the Earth, I explained that this emission is precisely what is expected to be produced by superwaves propagating away from the Galactic core and also pointed out that correlates of this diffuse emission are found also at X-ray and radio wavelengths.

What is described in this new news release from the Fermi Telescope group is the detection of essentially the same diffuse emission but concentrated at even higher intensities around the Galactic core.  Since I registered my superwave prediction about the origin of the diffuse gamma ray emission in 1998, this recent finding is one more verification of the superwave theory (to be added to the list of many other verifications that I need to include in the posted list of superwave theory verifications).  It is significant that the gamma ray energies are said to be in the 1 – 3 Gev range since the cosmic rays producing them would need to have even higher energies, e.g., at least above 100 Gev.  Studies of the diffuse gamma ray emission flares coming from the Crab Nebula, which is in the midst of the 14,000 year BP superwave, indicate the presence cosmic ray electrons having energies of 10 million billion electron volts, hence over a million times greater than the gamma ray energies observed toward the Galactic center.

It is also significant that this diffuse halo is circular in shape indicating that the cosmic rays producing it propagate radially away from the Galactic center in all directions.  This is exactly what the superwave theory has always maintained.  The Fermi bubble features that extend above and below the galactic plane simply indicate a slight enhancement in these polar directions because the superwave cosmic rays encounter less resistance when traveling toward higher latitudes.

Unfortunately, as usual, the astronomical community has messed up in their interpretation of this emission.  Astronomers at the Fermi Lab (Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory) in Batavia, Illinois are now suggesting that this diffuse gamma ray excess is produced by the annihilation of  hypothetical particles of dark matter.  See NASA article below:


Perhaps they hadn’t heard that the dark matter theory has recently been essentially disproven by the stunning results of M. Milgrom’s MOND (Modified Newtonian Dynamics) theory which obviates the need for postulating the existence of dark matter in galaxies.  Incidentally, the MOND theory is compatible with the predictions of subquantum kinetics.  Will they ever get it right?

  1. Normally I do not read post on blogs, however I would like to say that this write-up pressed me to try and do it! Your writing style has amazed me. Thank you, very great article.

  2. We are a bunch of volunnteers and starting a new scheme in our community.

    Your site offered us with helpful information to work on.
    You have performed a formidable job and our whole group can be grateful to you.

    Hi, Dr. Paul LaViolette, I’m keen on hearing your comments on this: http://phenomena.nationalgeographic.com/2014/04/20/mysterious-energetic-radio-burst/ This is quite interesting in light of your book The Message of The Pulsars.

    • Paul LaViolette says:

      These radio bursts are likely of natural origin, as my first guess, similar to gamma ray bursts.

  4. Paul LaViolette says:

    In regard to your suggestion that an electromagnetic field may be imposed in ‘close’ vicinity to the Earth that would trap mostly low energy electrons and thereby neutralize positively charged particles in the approaching solar wind (e.g., protons), one thing to consider is if this might be evidence of a field being artificially created between the Earth and the Sun to protect the Earth’s magnetosphere from the solar wind. At the end of a recent news posting (http://etheric.com/future-reading-padre-avondios/), I had proposed that such a “shield” might be set up to protect against the Dragon Mode effect. But without more information this is just speculation.

    I have looked at the magnetosphere image you mention and it does not look out of the ordinary. It is the kind of shape one would expect to be caused by an impacting solar wind.

  5. Patricia Lagrange Martínez says:

    Thank you for your explanation.

  6. Pete says:

    Dear Dr LaViolette, if you interpretation of Crab nebula radiation being caused by a superwave is correct, are there other supernova remnants that display similar phenomena?

    • Paul LaViolette says:

      No, not similar to the Crab, but there are other supernova on the superwave event horizon the display an indication of superwave impact. This evidence is reviewed in Earth Under Fire.

  7. Tom says:


    Thx for the information on this great find. I would also like to say congrats on your theory confirmation! (Yet again :p) You have an ever growing support fan base every time something like this is confirmed, hopefully it’s enough to turn heads within the scientific community. My only thoughts are, “What point should we worry, if at all?” Regarding the G2 cloud, is someone going to stand up and say, “brace yourselves for impact!” (Superwave Incoming) Or just does it arrive with no prerequisite or warning? I would like to be as emotionally prepared as possible, should fate decide destruction and death is inevitable. Could you please share your thoughts on this.

    Thank you for all of your work,


    • Paul LaViolette says:

      Early warning depends on a number of things:

      1) If the G2 cloud is seen to split in two and one of the astronomers I have previously written to informs me of this before we hear about it from the media (which could involve a substantial delay), then we might have a few weeks warning. Although, there is a strong possibility that a companion could be ripped off and that it would not generate a visible secondary cloud to provide such a warning.

      2) If the Swift staff provides prompt warning to me via email of a rise in core X-ray emission, we might have one day warning given the delays in Swift sending out their warning. This early X-ray burst would be due to the tidal/genic energy fragmentation of the star or planet and would likely occur shortly before a star or planet’s final impact which could induce a superwave.

      If neither of these indications succeeds in warning us, the first sign could be a cluster of major earthquakes occurring around the world almost at the same time. Then we might have a day and a half until the gamma pulse/cosmic ray arrival. Coordinated volcanic eruptions of the sort that David points out in his comment to the news posting “Increasing Incidence of Earthquakes: A Sign?” may also be indicators that something is coming.

      I have added these points to the Swift update news posting.
