From a crazy article: 'Russian scientists are reporting to Prime Minister Putin that the high-energy beam fired into the upper heavens from the United States High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) radar facility in Ramfjordmoen, Norway this past month has resulted in a “catastrophic puncturing” of our Plant’s thermosphere thus allowing into the troposphere an “unimpeded thermal inversion” of the exosphere, which is the outermost layer of Earth’s atmosphere.'" On the other hand it might just be a failed missile test. I'm going to warm up the infinite improbability drive just in case.
