A time-honored Christmas tradition is underway again, according to a Los Alamos National Laboratory announcement.
International audiences of all ages will be closely eyeing the Santa-tracking satellite technology of the laboratory in the coming week. Starting at 6 a.m. this morning, Los Alamos scientists began using two advanced science satellites to mark the path of the elfin traveler, noting his travels at http://SANTA.LANL.GOV online.
“We expect Santa to arrive in Northern New Mexico around midnight, Mountain Standard Time, on Christmas Eve,” said Diane Roussel-Dupré of Space Data Systems (ISR-3). “As he travels the world, crossing time zones, he’s chasing midnight, hour after hour, and delivering his treasures to families everywhere.”
While various scientific theories exist on how Santa manages to achieve his high-speed deliveries, none have been proven, although ion shielding, personal magnetic fields and multi-dimensional travel concepts have shown promise.
