Cosmic Rays may harm your cellphones – Hoax


Does it ever happen to you that you have a long conversation that absolutely have no sense? Well we indulge in such activity quite often Check this out, quite stupid, but original and funny.

It all started with a forwarded mail from one of our friend.

The original message:

Hi all
Tonight by 12.30 am cosmo rays from Mars enter into our atmosphere. You are requested to SWITCH OFF your mobile during that time .This is a request by NASA through BBC . Pls Forward it to all

The first response:
According to the latest from NASA you don’t have to switch off the mobile. The harmful xeon-trion cosmo rays would be converted into harmless nitrous oxide by NASA bio-hubble space ray converter installed secretly on top of Mt Everest. Since this may cause involuntary spasms and laughing gas syndrome, you are requested to put a tape on your mouth and wear a gas mask during that time. Please re-forward this latest communication from NASA otherwise people might die laughing.

    i’m shaun,
    just got a message that cosmo ray is going to enter earth, causing damage to cel phones!
    i hope the details given above is true!
    one dought,
    why our ozone layer can’t stop these rays??
    aren’t we protected?

  2. Udaywali says:

    Shaun,
    Could Mars emit harmful cosmic radiation? It is not a star. From magnetosphere? It has vanished long ago. What ever remains is too feeble to affect any thing as far as earth.
    Think it over. Ignore the message and hit the bed. Sleep well.

  3. hema says:

    having a doubt that why this cosmic radiation occurs to have it on the earth…. wat r the situations that overcum this cosmic rays….. why is it happening to earth other than other planets

  4. aliyu ahmed says:

    just got this same text a few minutes ago.now i’m not a “techy” fellow but it sounded like BS to me.just thought i know cosmic rays but never heard of cosmo rays before.

  5. benedict ihekweazu says:

    NASA should do somthing about this.

  6. I just got the same text message a moment and from my investigation so far with NASA,its an incorrect news.Let everyone go about his or her lawfull business,God is in charge of the cosmic system.

  7. perostica says:

    Just as Almighty God doesn’t sleep, he does not make mistakes. Here created the earth and protected the earth from all possible damage. that is why u have all the planet around the earth to protect every possible danger. no asteroid or Cosmo ray from any where.

  8. inyom doo gideon says:

    we actually live in an information age but we refuse to be informed cos we are too scared to explore so we have become a slave to fear. I had a presistent call on my phone as i was sleepn awhile ago i got up and answered. The caller sounded so worried that he sent me a message and i didnt acknowledge reciept considerin the importance attached to the mail. I read through n decided to google on my nokia phone but didnt see the threat he emphatically tried to convey. thanks to everone that has explained this thing here. I can now go back to sleep in peace. The world strives on information but a generation that has refused to be informed is already doomed. Imagine how many doctors will switch off this phones for fear of cosmic ray radiations and the number of patients who cant access their docs for emergencies n possibly face death cos of this rumour!

  9. Golden says:

    Got an sms about a ray coming into earth from mars.Whats all this about cosmos rays,how true is this?

  10. Regnoble says:

    cosmic rays are emitted by stars. i.e bodie that are undergoing nuclear reactions that is fusion (as occurs in our sun) or fission (as occurs in nuclear reactors) . mars is neither. it is a planet that just reflects sunlight. it cannot emit cosmic radiation. with regards to these rays the earths atmospher is capable of taking care of them so no need to worry.

    See ya guys.

  11. ibrahim mohammed says:

    hahahahahahah! funny, am awake and my fon switched on, bring it on the cosmo rays

  12. suikidd says:

    I think this cosmo ray think is just a hoax.
    I don’t believe there is any such thing as cosmo rays.
    What I have heard of is cosmic radiations.

  13. Buckman Boateng says:

    I just received this message this night. Please i need more information on this cosmo rays.

  14. kassim baluri says:

    i received the same sms last night but decided to ignore it…there is however a lot of misinformation in town about this. A neighbour just call and asked us to come out bcos an earthquake is about to happen. Somebody need to provide information to the public

  15. Curtis Osei - Owusu says:

    The same this is happening here in Ghana (West Africa) right now. There has been misinformation going around that there is an earthquake happening. It started around 12:30 am and it’s around 5:00 am now and people are still outside on the streets. Meanwhile this is false because there has been no earthquake in Ghana!

  16. fresno says:

    this is bullcrap. Received the text message a few mins before midnight and knew it was a hoax. And then a neighbour bangs on my door and tells me an earthqauke is about to happen and so i should get out of my apartment. lol

  17. lulu says:

    i was woken up @ 4:00am by a neighbor saying dat there’s gonna be an earthquake so we shd all get out of our rooms…i was jus too sleepy to be bothered! who can predict there’s gonna be an eearthquake?

  18. beejay says:

    It all points to one thing.
    The end is near.
    Imagine earthquake in Ghana
    Climate change
    Nations fighting themselves(imagine terrorist attack by a nigerian)we would never do that if all things were being equal.
    Has anyone watched 2012?
    Depletion of ozone layer leaving earth expose
    Remember GOD gave us brains even scientists,he’s using science to warn us all.
    Remember noah tried to convince ppl but they literarily failed to listen to him,maybe this movie is one of the warnings..
    Peace luv n happiness to everyone from nigeria

    • Lilian Apere says:

      I receieved same txt last night,but whatever the case may be,i stongly believe God is a cosmic Ruler and he alone is omminiscience,so dis rumour has no effects xcept d allknowing signs it.

  19. Muyiwa says:

    Wat d hell is ds cosmo ray all about pls nasa should explain

  20. Doki says:

    I had the same message lastnight that there is going to be some cosmic radiation from mars to earth so our phones should be better off. I think I need more explanation about how the rumour came about.

  21. Samsack says:

    From the information I have gathered, cosmic ray particles are constantly reaching the earth and so why this alarm? although their emission is higher now since the sun’s activity is currently low, the fact still stands clear that mars cannot emit cosmic rays, however it does not have the atmosphere that is enough to adequately interfere with the speeding particles so the effect on mars could be high, finally mars would not deflect its cosmic rays to us and even if it does, we are already dealing with more direct ones so reflected ones will be less difficult to deal with.

  22. jennifer says:

    yeah i had the same cosmo rays message last night around 11pm and i put off my fon immediately. otherwise i would have been woken up with calls that an earthquake is coming …which never came..thank God i didnt know about the earthquake scare and i had my sleep…lol

  23. Solomon idi sauki shoe potiskum says:

    Pls what is the true about this issue of cosmic ray

  24. Manuel W says:

    Why are ppl so gulable including my sis that sent this to me, I am an Aeronautical Engineer with experience in Astrophysics:

    NASA never said such a thing and will probably never make such a statement as Mars does produce any electromagnetic rays and even the visible light seen is a reflection from the sun similar to our moon.

    Cosmic rays don’t come from Mars.

    Cosmic rays are very high speed particles which fly through our Milky-Way and plow Earth’s Atmosphere causing a small shower of very tiny, very high speed particles. No one knows for certain what the exact origins or Cosmic Rays are, but a few ideas have been put forth:

    – Supernovae
    – The Disks around black holes
    – The strong magnetic fields that course through our galaxy

    Whatever the case may be, they probably don’t affect your cell phone’s battery a whole heck of a lot. However, they might, from time to time, affect the transmission of signals from one phone to another- especially if those signals are relayed to an orbiting telecommunications satellite. If that satellite is struck by a cosmic ray in just the right place to fry some vital electronic component, your call might be affected. And just that

  25. preye says:

    I don’t think this is right because our father in heaven is the owner of the universe he does not sleep at night.

  26. seun.. says:

    lots of news we arnt so sure what to believe.. i’ld just say be on d safe side that is which ever one you think is right. stay safe.

  27. Paffy says:

    I know it’s all shit, no concrete evidence on it!

  28. Gbenga says:

    Whatever this cosmic ray is, do not scare people with false information. Text messages are flying everywhere and I feel this anomalies should be corrected by NASA. People are DEAD scared that something strange may happen tonight. I advise the whole world not to pay attention to this false information. Go ahead and do your normal routines.

  29. Semiu Amao says:

    Many thanks to you guys. I also just get this message from my colleague. Infact, 2min later I had a call from my relative passing the same message across.
    Since this message does not have any reasonable source, I consider it as a false alarm and I recommend others to do same.

  30. Godwin says:

    Menh whoever originatd this rumour must b enjoying him or herself now.y r we africans easily deceived.just went through NASA’s website n theres no warnin or d slightess info about any cosmic or cosmos rays from mars.for crying out loud mars is not a star,its just like earth it doesnt emit any form of radiation.na waooo!!

  31. Mobush says:

    What the hell is this cosmic ray?
    To me the message looks ridiculous. If the effect of the cosmic ray is ‘endless laughter then the world will be a better place as people will no longer have cause to grieve.
    Lol!

  32. Abdulndigital says:

    We are bless wit knowledge, but we remain ignorant.. Why cant we think.. Any ray that harm human cant reach earth.. All are repelled away.. This article by bbc is there since 2008, and now, so fellow begin to circulate it that so rubbish is goin to happen.. Well, God is all knowin, and we have been warn about the hour when ppl believe lies rather than the truth..

  33. Dapo Jah says:

    If you are scared, call me. i’ll explain about the cosmic rays.

  34. iniobong says:

    folks when ever you receive an sms like this, i think the best thing to do is for us to verify the information via the respective sources’ website. like in this case, simply logging on to bbc.com. would have gone a long way to help us figure out facts for ourselves and not allow our heads being used by some uninformed set of folks.

  35. oluoha onyi says:

    This isnt something u just type in true or false.it is in the bible that a time will come when false news will be spread .anyway,prevention is better than cure.beware!!!!!

  36. Kayode says:

    I knew it can not be true. If the cosmos rays can spoil my phone, why are the service providers equipment still on? Afterall, the signal is from them. I ignored the text but i sought after the truth from the internet.

  37. Kayode says:

    Why did all d service providers not switch off their equipment? Without a signal from them, my phone can not work. It’s all a hoarse.

  38. Tony says:

    I heard it today and am warning all and sundry to adhere to that please!

  39. Freeman says:

    U guyz carryin dis rumour about cosmo ray radiation are crazy. Let NASA alone xplain 2 us & not u dommies.

  40. Freeman says:

    Some naughty guyz just want 2 scare many. If such information were true it will get accross 2 subscribers via d right channel. There4 u rumour mongers keep silent.

  41. omo says:

    KNOWLEDGE IS POWER! BEFORE YOU START PANICKING, WHY DON’T YOU DO A RESEARCH AND CONSULT AUTHORITIES IN THIS FIELD BEFORE YOU MAKE/DRAW YOUR CONCLUSION(S).

  42. Agabi ogar says:

    ROMOUR is baaaaaaaaaaad and ignorance makes you poorer. imagine how much people have spent calling and sending sms about the cosmic ray saga to love ones.no wonder telecom industry are keeping silent about it so that they can make more money. My pnone will be on 24/7 for free nit calls.THE STORY IS FALSE!

  43. Wahab victor J says:

    Well, I switched off my phone when I heard it. He that do not believe a lie will not believe the truth. What will it cost me to switch off my phone for a few hours.

  44. Doreen from Nigeria. says:

    I dnt want 2 doubt dis info.thank God its even @ night,aftral,it wil cost me noting if i switch off my phone.b dat as it may,i believe God is in control.

  45. Ochu Innocent. says:

    Thanx friends/relative for this info.But i think the right authority on this issue should be NASA,so why worry.From BBC NEWS,it has been confirmed that this ray can not come from Planet Mars and even if it happens, the Ozone layer is not so bad not to protect us.Anyway be observant.

  46. Rosecollette says:

    Wotz hu eva datz d originator of ds ill news goin 2 gain anyway? Wel ma advise is verify an info be4 actin.

  47. Queenteen says:

    it’s all false ALARM! Don’t panic…!

  48. Uv says:

    It’s not just Nigeria it was spread almost everywhere in the world before you start playing the track of ignorance of Nigerians. It’s a false news,check Wikipedia,BBC news and NASA site,received the msg from my sista few mins ago and decided to check d net before passing it on& alas! It’s not true. Cos if it were wont d network provider give information to their subscribers. Dont blame anyone,just prevent it from being spread. We humans being,being Nigerians dont make us stupid or ignorant&wat makes me mad is that it’s Nigerians who say this. U guys not every one is Farouk-that’s stupid. We re a force to contend with,the issue is how much of this research means-the internet is near or available to each one,or wod someone by this time jump into clothes to run down to a cyber cafe that closing up? Jeez! Guys think

  49. Confidence Chukwudi Oleh says:

    May God, in His infinite mercy, forgive that one who, through this rumour, has denied and will deny dying patients the services of their doctors! It’s unfortunate!

  50. Oreoluwa says:

    Wit all dis i’m more confusd 1hr left

  51. MOTUTU says:

    GOD IS IN CONTROL, BE IT RUMOUR,BE IT TRUE, GOD IS FAITHFUL AND HE NEEDS HIS CHILDREN TO TRUST HIM TOTALLY WITH ALL THEIR HEART.

  52. Kenneth says:

    Same message is being passed around the republic of Ireland now, I checked the BBC NEWS website and found out it was a rumour, Please ignore the message and go to your beds, He that watches over us neither sleep nor slumber.

  53. Inene Ipia says:

    People should not get scared of the cosmic ray,because God is in charge and would not allow any one to be a victim.

  54. Thompson says:

    Received d same SMS from a friend & checked d Internet asap but no authoritative info confirming this. Anywayz, I ain’t believe but won’t cost me a dime to switch my phones off. Moreover,might b somtin else being misinterpreted as cosmic rays. Try watch d movie, 2012. Behind every rumour, there might be atoms of truth within. Cheers

  55. so the really cosmo rays enter in our atmosphere plz , so soon reply.

    got d msg from my frenz, funny silly trick to switch off mobiles for to see how percentage of people befools from this message. ( or decrease the mobile market during three hour).

  60. kartik says:

    looking at the above replies and responses on other websites it seems that this shit is going on since the past 2 years…….this rumour surely is a hit !!!!!

  61. mayur bandekar says:

    why dont NASA smthing abt the TETHER INCIDENT
    or UFO

  62. SmS says:

    hii frnds, I got one message from my friend, like this “tonight 12.30 to 3.30am cosmo rays will be entering earth from mars. so swith off ur mobiles tonight-NASA BBC NEWS. please pass to all your friends, please dont forget it.”

    i want to detail about cosmac rays why it enter at atmosphere?

  66. AMIN ALI ANSARI says:

    Oh!!!!!!!! shit………………….just go to your normal work there are no any such thing to prevent of your normal work…..they are only cosmic rays which have own property like charged one proton………On NASA website no such things are say about u must be take care……avoid rumors and get self explanatory nature……….thats iit all………all is well

  67. mushtaq rasool jk says:

    Just a rumour…. But I wonder why the people at helm of affairs donot respond immediately allowing all to doubt or believe even if they have a good scientific temperment. After all in any such case why should the service operators not swith off their service towers for the time being.

  68. RItesh patel says:

    plz follow bcz may be it can happen ,,..so plz switched off. the buddy phones

  69. ahmed says:

    hello im ahmed nisar. plz follow d instrution told by nasa as it may result ending many people to die.

  70. ayman nisar says:

  72. Mars-man says:

    Dear Earthlings,

    Do not worry as we have situation under control. My name is Mars-man and I promise you that we at mars will not let any cosmic rays divert towards Earth. I have developed a special cosmicraygulper machine which will retain the rays for the moment. We have a acute shortage of cosmic rays and therefore the question of any passing on to Earth is unthinkable. But we also require additional funds to carry out further advancements in the machine… so if you could kindly please forwards a small donation to my account(# 004567834marsman) in Nigeria. Sleep tight as Mars-man is there to fight.

    well in India too, today we are going to have cosmic rays entering to earth, I got such message,
    The timing is 1Am to 5:30 Am. well m confused a bit….!!!!!???

  76. chandrashekhar says:

    Haaaaaaaaaaaa,Haaaaaaaaaaaaa
    Kindly use your brain,,,,,,,,
    cosmic rays are always emitted or produced by stars or large fusions. i.e bodie that are undergoing nuclear reactions that is fusion (as occurs in our sun) or fission (as occurs in nuclear reactors) . mars is neither. it is a planet that just reflects sunlight. it cannot emit cosmic radiation. with regards to these rays the earths atmospher is capable of taking care of them so no need to worry.

  107. sciencefreak says:

    Looks like we have another rotation of the rumor in 2011.

    I just received a forward message from a friend which I instanly recognized to be the same one that i got almost 10 months ago. So was wondering how long does a sms take to rotate around and reappear (well atleast in Pakistan). . . The probably fake message received by me on 26th April, 2010 said:

    tonight 1:30 to 4:30 cosmic rays will be entering earth 4rm mars so kindly switch off your mobile phones tonight – nasa bbc news- please pass this message to all your friends for safety

    Although i did check the NASA and BBC news last year when i received this message but this time i am sure it’s fake because it’s thesame fake message about these cosmic radiations coming back to me after God knows how many cycles.

    Umm.. wait a second, lemme check NASA and BBC news . . .

    Ok i am back . . . and well i didn’t see any such news there! it’s all just fake and a rumor!

    Let me tell you some thing about cosmic rays btw! They are emitted from stars which have their own light. Mars reflect sun’s light (although some cosmic rays too). Almost 90% of all the incoming cosmic ray particles are simple protons, with nearly 10% being helium nuclei (alpha particles), and slightly under 1% are heavier elements, electrons (beta particles), or gamma ray photons.

    Anyway, there is no such harm imho! So keep using your cell phones! these cellular companies need some money to survive!

    I don’t know why people start circulating these sort of panic messages disturbing everyone’s every day life and routine!

  108. vikas says:

    hiiiiiiiiiiiiii this is vikas and i would like to say that these are RUMOURS for all those duds who wants to talk with there GF at night. so that’s great to them coz today they can sleep at least full night………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….FUCK FOR LOVERS………HA HA HA HA

  142. ruth says:

    This doesn’t sound true

  143. the cosmic rays could really affect phones truly just beacause if it enters into the earth there is a possibility that it reacts with radioactive rays which would be dangerous to cell phones and human health as at that pont in time. So in had no choice than to switch of my phone . and taped my mouth and covered my face. till this morning. cos PREVENTION IS BETTER THAN CURE.

  144. Alonge says:

  165. We need to becareful and prayerfu.

  166. Even if it’s not true, we just have to obey because too much anaylisses leads to parralisses. There are certain mirco element that d ozone layer cant withstand like nuclear rediation, even hydroscopic nitrogen gas, such anti bodies leads to wear and tear, and cosmic ray is under such category. Pls people obey is better dan scarifies, switching ur phone off just 4 dis nyt wont kill u. So switch it off and have a gud sleep and dream of cosmic ray

  167. yash says:

    i believe that cosmic rays will definitely come to earth and will be really harmful to cellphones

    According to the latest from NASA you

    The harmful xeon-trion cosmo rays
    would be converted into harmless
    nitrous oxide by NASA bio-hubble space ray converter installed secretly
    on top of Mt Everest. Since this may
    cause involuntary spasms and
    laughing gas syndrome, you are
    requested to put a tape on your

  204. bee says:

    The message above is clearly nothing more than
    just another HOAX. I don’t know why people are circulating panic messages such as this to disturb the lives of other people. From what I have noticed, this message has been circulating since 2008 and it suddenly reappeared today, 6 April 2012. I also received text messages containing this false information and saw similar Facebook posts. I did my own research and I have found no credible reports that confirm the claims in the warning message. There are no references to such a threat listed on credible scientific websites. I also checked the NASA and BBC news today to see if they have posted something like this. Fortunately, both have never said such a thing and will never probably produce a similar baseless statement. Despite the claim in the message, there are several reasons to say that this information is untrue. First, Mars could not emit harmful radiation because it is not a star. Cosmic rays are emitted by stars. i.e bodies that are undergoing nuclear reactions that is fusion (as occurs in our sun) or fission (as occurs in nuclear reactors). Mars is neither. It is a planet that just reflects sunlight. It cannot emit cosmic radiation. Next, with regards to these rays the earth’s atmosphere is capable of taking care of them so no need to worry. The magnetosphere absorbs and protects us from the sun’s harmful radiation. Whatever remains is too feeble to affect any thing as far as earth.

    THINK BEFORE YOU ACT

    Is Cosmic rays from the Mars or galaxy/stars?
    How genuine is the information? from NASA? where and when?
    Does it only affect phones? what about other gadgets that uses photons or (electronics)?

    Does it mean all things will stop between that time?

    Do you switched off your phone too? or probably moved and then had courage to see what will happen? JESUS IS COMING SOON believe His message

    This is ridiculous. I just got this cosmos ray thing. I just hope someone will just stop this nonsense fake news.

  223. George David says:

    sometimes i imagin the relationship between cellphone and cosmic ray. Blc if actually strike the earth, it will affect individuals and in such case we are advice to use tape on our mouth and put on glass… Hey, Nigerians lets leave Rumours and look for way forward about the ozone layer…

  224. GIFT ESUH says:

    hi am Gift. .i’m seventeen n wnt call maself an astronomer or NASA agent bt frm d lil av studied its possible dat cosmic rays kuld actualy hit d earth frm mars n may prove dangerous. firstly, in dier orbits mars n earth come close 2 each oda once in 2nhalf yrs. .dats y ppl kip referin 2dis rumour as ‘happend 3yrs ago’. secondly, though mars may nt emit any rays, it is a solid object n all objects reflect waves (cosmic or nt) frm d sun. .d moon doz nt produce its own light bt it reflects light frm d sun. so

  225. GIFT ESUH says:

    mars may actuall reflect d sun’s cosmic rays 2wards us. .d earths athmoshere will be bombarded.

    Hoax Alert: Cosmic Rays from Mars Entering Earth

    There have been rumors circulating that cosmic rays from Mars are entering Earth tonight so we need to switch off our phones, or put them away from us.

    Tonight 12:30 am to 3:30 am cosmo rays entering earth from mars. So switch off your mobile at night. Don’t keep your cell with you & put it away while you are sleeping because they are too much dangerous rays: NASA informs BBC NEWS. Pls spread this news.

    Well, well, well. If I receive one, similar messages above. Then, I know how to react since you proved that was hoax. So Mars cosmic rays exist but not on our phones. The possibility that may come to reality if me and my phone is both on the outer space. You know, I’m dreaming about being an austronaut one day.

  253. preci says:

    is it today

  254. my cellphone nokia 3310 is it effect too?

  256. […] rumor appears to have been started several years ago, as seen on this 2008 post, it and has resurfaced several times since. In 2012 it reappeared as an April Fool’s joke […]

  257. nila says:

    First it will effect on satellite.
    And from mars?
    Unbelievable. Its not a star.
    And if rays comes earths magnetic field will fight on that,,, if not than may be magnetic pole change or unstable poles will create. Means earth will become with many magnetic pole and it will change locations constantly(not in every single minute).
    Lots of there to debt.

    And cosmos force required from star not from planet that don’t have such magnetron.

    Any how don’t worry sleep tight good night.

    If happens such by cosmo rays only comes from star, nobody knows wht happened next.

    So don’t panic, if will happen than happen for everybody.

  258. I don’t care I will not switchin off my mobile,I don’t care bout this fake news,and who cares if you believe to it for your self okey
