91. The Absurdity of Neutron Stars [SIS Internet Digest $]
... - its electric charge- plays the most significant role. So if gravity wave telescopes detect anything at all, it won't be gravity waves from super-heavy objects. And particle physicists who are trying to work out how the universe was constructed from strange matter early in the Big Bang are wasting their time. The astronomer Halton Arp, author of the Atlas of Peculiar Galaxies, has conclusively disproven the theory of an expanding universe and so knocked out the foundation of the Big Bang theory. Meanwhile the plasma physicists and electrical engineers are waiting ... the wings for those astro-and nuclear-physicists parading their strange science in public to get off the stage. It would be entertaining if it weren't so serious. But it is costing us dearly and holding up real progress. ...
92. The Search for Two Numbers [Thunderbolts Website]
... early universe." The highway to modern cosmology began in the mid-1920's, also as a result of Hubble's work. Other astronomers were still arguing the 150-year-old debate, "Is the Milky Way the only galaxy?" (Most said "yes"--the universe isn't big enough for more than one galaxy.) But Hubble was taking photos of the nearby galaxies M31 and M33, cataloging their stars and trying to determine how far away they are. The three papers he published in 1925, 1926, and 1929 proved to astronomers ... time that there is a universe beyond the Milky Way. If this was the beginning of the highway of cosmology, then Hubble's redshift/distance article was the first major fork in the road. Everyone took the same turn, the turn that led to the big bang and to tired light. This was the hypothesis that determined the course of 20th century cosmology. The "two numbers" that cosmology chased for so long were the Hubble Constant (how fast the universe is expanding) and the age of the universe (when ...
93. A Bump In The Cosmic Background [Science Frontiers Website]
... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 18: Nov-Dec 1981 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects A Bump In The Cosmic Background The accepted explanation of the microwave cosmic background is that it is the "echo" of the Big Bang that created the cosmos as we now know it. Ideally, this background radiation should be uniform in all directions and follow the intensity curve of a black body radiating at 2.7 K. Spatial anomalies have already been reported, and now an embarrassing bump has ... found on the intensity curve at 0.5-1.0 millimeters wavelength. No explanation for this departure from the black body curve has been provided except to say that the Big Bang deviated from the perfect uniformity. (Anonymous; "Cosmic Background Not So Perfect," New Scientist, 92:23, 1981.) Reference. Anomalies associated with the cosmic background radiation are cataloged under ATF1 and ATF2 in Stars, Galaxies, Cosmos. For details on the book, go to: here.

94. Large, Unseen Mass is Pulling Earth Toward It [Science Frontiers Website]
... . This mass would have to be about 10 billion light years away and weigh as much as 100 million Galaxies. Such a gigantic blob or inhomogeneity in the universe would be very difficult to explain. As it is, the aggregation of stars into galaxies after the Big Bang remains poorly understood. The bigger the inhomogeneity, the harder it is to account for. The Big Bang should have spread matter out pretty evenly. (Anonymous; "Large Mass May Pull Earth Through Space," New Scientist, 83:21, ... .)

95. Another Electrical “Shock” for Astronomers [Thunderbolts Website]
... to form Abell 3376. The collision could have sparked a shockwave that traveled out through the cluster gas, whose remnants we are now seeing.” But according to the New Scientist article,“ there is a more intriguing possibility. Primordial gas, untouched since the big bang, should be constantly pouring into all galaxy clusters and the two shockwaves could mark where this cool ancient gas smacks into the super-hot gas of the cluster.” Interpretations of this sort underscore the gap that has developed between standard cosmology and plasma cosmology. In ... cosmology, it is the electric force that accelerates charged particles at energies up to 10 20 electron volts. This interpretation rests on practical laboratory experiments with particle acceleration, and involves no ad hoc speculations. To ask some imagined mechanical “shock” to achieve such acceleration is to take astronomy into untestable conjecture. As if to make the plasma cosmologists ’ point for them, the article states that these “shockwaves” “could also give us a clue as to why the universe is threaded with magnetic fields.” But nowhere in ...
96. An Astronomical Paradox [Science Frontiers Website]
... pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects An Astronomical Paradox Just a few years ago, most astronomers would have predicted that, as they examined larger and larger volumes of the universe, they would find more and more homogeneity. The Big Bang Theory predicts this; and it is seconded by the isotropy of the microwave background radiation. The mapping of the universe, however, has actually turned up all manner of galactic clusters, superclusters, and great skeins of superclusters strung across the heavens. Instead ... a puree of matter, there is more and more structure the farther we peer into space. R.B. Tully, at the University of Ha waii, now charts a billion-light-year structure that he calls the Pisces-Cetus complex. This aggregation of galaxies includes us (the Milky Way), our Local Supercluster, and many neighboring superclusters. In actuality, the PiscesCetus complex is not a continuous structure. Rather, it is defined by a plane-- one containing a host of superclusters as well as voids. The problem posed for theorists ...

... has become far brighter, lending the conclusion that it is, indeed, a comet (cf. Workshop 1989:2, p.22). The brightness is explained, of course, as the vaporisation of its ices. At 200 km in diameter it is very big compared the run-of-the-mill comet: it is a dark body, but this is now considered to be normal for most asteroids and comets since the close study of Halley's comet gave the lie to the 'dirty snowball' theory.

... their hold on scientific imagination? By following the evidence, one will confront the single most costly theoretical mistake of the twentieth century: the belief that we live in an electrically sterile universe. When that mistake is corrected, the universe will no longer resemble the “big picture” that dominates popular science. And the disappearance of the big bang, black holes, dark matter, dark energy, and neutron stars from the lexicon of astronomy will be a mere beginning.

99. What Does It All Mean? [Science Frontiers Website]
... as it is by most scientists. The atoms and mole-cules had to have just the right properties as well as enough time and room to fall together into humankind. "Could it be that whoever or whatever started this universe, some 18 billion years ago in the big bang, designed it to last that long, and therefore to be as big as it is, in order to have an opportunity to create man?" Example 5. The fruitfulness of mathematics. "Since the seventeenth century, we have had at least ... major and numerous minor examples of mathematical systems which were produced initially as pure products of the human mind simply for our delight in their inner beauty, but which later turned out to mirror the workings of the natural world accurately and precisely in every detail in ways completely unforeseen and unexpected by their originators." In other words, God is a geometer. (Pollard, William G.; "Rumors of Transcendence in Physics," American Journal of Physics, 52:877, 1984.) Comment. Pollard's article is laced ...

... results validate the long duration of ice ages and inter-ice ages. The weight of dating-evidence is intimidating. The more influential methods of ice core, radiocarbon, and tree ring dating are founded on extensive research. Although the theories are not ironclad, the endless flow of big numbers is unnerving. This rock is 350 million years old; here is an eight thousand-year-old bristlecone pine; and every dinosaur bone is older than 65 million years. In a fantasy debate I carry on with a scientific expert, I picture us as characters in ... all arts and sciences. The stamp of authoritative knowledge now belongs to science-- and why not? Greek philosophers never sped along an autobahn, and medieval popes never hopped a transcontinental flight to the realm of angels. Science churns out tangible results, a big bang of artifacts, processes, and wild ideas that impress even its most churlish critics. Velikovsky raged at the teachings of scientists. He thundered in talks to college students: "Your textbooks are of Victorian vintage." Yet his most ardent wish was to be ...
