Well perhaps it will bring you one step closer to know that the Universities are on the ball regarding Santa and how he could possibly do what he does...

So here we have one more accredited source that not only s Santa REAL, but they explain...

THE SCIENCE OF SANTA

Who are they?

Okay... so The History Channel, the Discover Channel, SIX (6) Official Government Agencies and now a main stream Aerospace Engineering University all tell you that Santa is real... and millions of people around the world agree...

What's it gonna take FOR YOU?

Santa Adds Facebook to Naughty List Over Friend Limit
By Ryan Singel
September 16, 2008




Quote
Santa Claus is upset with Facebook.

Everyone, it seems, wants to be friends with Santa Claus on Facebook. In the month or so since he joined the popular social network, he's approved 5,000 friends. He could have easily gone viral by Thanksgiving -- when everyone wants to be "friends" with Santa regardless of whether they deserve to be. He could become the most popular person in the world on Facebook.

But unfortunately for Santa, 5,000 friends is all anyone gets on Facebook. To add anyone new, the man who says his real legal name is Santa Claus must remove someone on his list.

That upsets the man who runs the Santa Claus Foundation, which he describes as an advocacy group for children.

"It's hard for me to believe that Facebook would want to disappoint that many folks who might enjoy being Santa's friends," Claus said in an e-mail. "I'm not selling anything; so, I don't understand the problem."

He wants Facebook to make an exception for him and he's not above thinking about rough tactics, noting a report that Facebook lost users in the United Kingdom earlier this year.

" can only imagine what could happen, should word will get around that it is now severely limiting the number of friends Santa Claus can have," Claus said. "Would this make Facebook the new Scrooge or Grinch?"

Those are harsh words given that Santa already got personal help from Facebook, since the site blocks people from registering names like Darth Vader or the Easter Bunny. But Santa was able to prove he was legally Santa Claus and a tech overrode the ban, making Santa Claus the Santa Claus on Facebook.

Facebook says the 5,000 friend limit applies to all users -- but anyone can make a page where an unlimited number of  people can sign themselves up as fans.

A Facebook tech already helped Santa create a page, but Santa says that having fans is not nearly the same as having friends.

"We hope this minor inconvenience doesn’t impact the otherwise good little boys and girls at Facebook come Christmas," spokesman Barry Schnitt said, adding that he hopes Santa collects as many fans as he can.

Santa isn't the first to reach or complain about the limit -- prominent tech bloggers Robert Scoble and Jason Calcanis have both hit the limits. The limit is intended to keep Facebook resembling how real world social networks work since no one really has 5,000 friends.

There may also be technical reasons that make the limit necessary.

One wonders if Facebook actually does raise the limit just for Santa, how will they say no come spring when the Easter Bunny gets hopping mad about the limit?

NORAD Tracks Santa Update
NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center:


According to the US Department of Commerce Census Bureau, the world's population is approximately 6,747,994,729 people (305,910,988 in the U.S.). Santa has had to adapt over the years to having less and less time to deliver gifts. To better assure prompt deliveries and safe flights, higher technology systems are increasingly being used by the United States Northern Command at Peterson Air Force Base Colorado. The USAF uses ground based radars, NOAA operational satellites provided by NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, Santa Cams, and jet fighter aircraft. Global position satellite (GPS) information and carefully timed gravity assists from the sun, moon, and/or earth are used to speed Santa's sleigh faster and more precisely. The 406 MHz Search and Rescue transmitter that Santa will have is equipped with a GPS feature so that National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) operational satellites (POES and GOES), EUMETSAT's MetOp-A, and Russian COSPAS satellites will know almost instantly within meters where Santa is. Multi-variable modeling improvements in the solar wind, auroras, geomagnetic force fields, and space/earth weather predictions are also being credited for improved sleigh routing efficiencies this year. Rudolph reportedly appreciates the POES and GOES infrared data so that he knows where fog is and can take over the reins from Santa and he says the polar microwave data is great for telling him where the rain, snow, and ice are for those precise landing adjustments.

From 22,300 miles in space, NORAD will use for the first time the GOES-13 improved earth location accuracy and heat detection infrared equipment from various satellites. Rudolph's nose gives off an infrared signature similar to a missile launch and the satellites can detect Rudolph's bright red nose very precisely. NOAA, NASA, and the USAF have satellites precisely positioned and additional volunteers are supporting the improved Santa tracking beginning after sundown on Christmas Eve December 24, 2008. Near "real time" public updates of progress should be available from the web site NORAD Santa and thanks to worldwide corporate and international support updates will be provided in seven languages.

UPDATE: December 22, 2008

HEY Now maybe we will get to the bottom of the famous line..

"Houston there is a Santa Claus"

It seems NASA to celebrate Apollo 8's 40th Anniversary will rebroadcast the transmission :D

PRESS RELEASE
Dec. 22, 2008

Al Feinberg
Headquarters, Washington
202-358-1058
al.feinberg@nasa.gov

MEDIA ADVISORY: M08-268
NASA TELEVISION COMMEMORATES APOLLO 8 CHRISTMAS EVE BROADCAST

WASHINGTON -- NASA Television will honor the 40th anniversary of the historic Christmas Eve broadcast by the Apollo 8 crew with special programming Dec. 24 and 25 on the NASA TV Public Channel (101).

Forty years ago, Frank Borman, Jim Lovell and Bill Anders became the first humans to visit another heavenly body as they successfully orbited the moon in their Apollo 8 spacecraft. On Dec. 24, 1968, the three astronauts devoted one of their mission's six live television transmissions to reading from the biblical book of Genesis during what has since come to be known as the Christmas Eve Broadcast.

To commemorate the anniversary, NASA TV will air the following special programs:

    "The Annual John H. Glenn Lecture -- An Evening with the Apollo 8 Astronauts," a panel discussion with Frank Borman, Jim Lovell and Bill Anders recorded Nov. 13, 2008, at the Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum. Former U.S. senator and NASA astronaut John Glenn provided their introduction.
    "The Apollo 8 Crew Remembers Historic Mission, Live from the Newseum," a panel discussion with the Apollo 8 astronauts moderated by Nick Clooney and recorded Nov. 13, 2008, at the Newseum in Washington.
    "De-Brief Apollo 8," an historical documentary of Apollo 8, narrated by Burgess Meredith (1970).
    "Apollo 8 Christmas Video," a 10-minute documentary featuring Apollo 8 astronauts describing their historic mission. (Excerpts from the John H. Glenn Lecture recorded Nov. 13, 2008.)
    "Apollo 8 -- December 21, 1968," a NASA Manned Space Flight Film Report on the Apollo 8 mission (1970).

The NASA Television Video File also will include footage documenting the Apollo 8 mission's Christmas Eve broadcast. For program times and listings, consult the NASA Television schedule online at:

One final entry... PROOF of Santa written in STONE

Location of 'Santa Claus' Petroglyph


© All rights reserved

A Photo Essay - Photography by Bill Bryant

Almost as amazing as the petroglyph, is where it was carved into the rock... nearly 100 feet up on the side of a shear cliff. This canyon is called the "longest art gallery in the world" with over 10,000 incredible petroglyphs. Go to www.ninemilecanyoncoalition.org for more information.


Original 'Santa Claus' Petroglyph

Could this 1,000+ year old petroglyph be the original Santa, his elf, and his nine reindeer?
Located in Nine Mile Canyon, Utah, these amazing petroglyphs are in danger of being destroyed by oil and gas development in the area. Go to www.ninemilecanyoncoalition.org for more information.

Well of course Santa is real.  He was at the railroad museum when I took the grandkids up there.  That museum is a cool place, btw.
