1. Thoth Vol. V, No 10 Aug 31, 2001 [Thoth Website]
... by Wal Thornhill The Electric Universe model has made some capital from the fact that the key evidence for a nuclear engine in the Sun, the neutrino count, failed to live up to expectations. In Physics World, July 2001, [see http://physicsweb.org/article/world/14/7/10 an article appeared that asserted that the solar neutrino puzzle is now solved and that it "confirms that our understanding of the Sun is correct." Is this a serious blow to the Electric Universe model? ... particle, a type of particle that is its own antiparticle. "If you could place a bet at the bookmakers on the next change to the Standard Model, the Majorana theory would be the front-runner," he says. Author: Katie Pennicott is Editor of PhysicsWeb WAL'S COMMENT: In the Electric Universe model, there is no antimatter forming antiparticles. An electron and a positron are composed of the same charged sub-particles in different conformations. They come together to form a stable neutrino, emitting most of their orbital energies in the ...
2. Physics Has Its Principles [SIS Internet Digest $]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 2002:2 (Dec 2002) Home¦ Issue Contents Physics Has Its Principles www.metaresearch.org/cosmology/PhysicsHasItsPrinciples.asp Abstract: Physicists and mathematicians have fundamentally different approaches to describing reality. The essential difference is that physicists adhere to certain logical principles, any violation of which would amount to a miracle; whereas the equations of mathematics generally are oblivious to physical constraints. This leads to drastically different views of what is, and what is not, possible for cosmology and the reality we live in. Introduction: "Something is wrong with science- fundamentally wrong. Theories keep getting stranger and stranger." [ref. 1; opening words of Preface This is certainly true of physics, which has backed itself into apparent contradictions, leading directly to the dominant Copenhagen view that "there is no deep reality to the world around us". A reasonable person might ask, "What is the wrong turn that physics has taken to arrive at this predicament?" The answer proposed here is that physics has given up its principles. It ...
3. Electro-Gravitic Theory (Forum) [SIS C&C Review $]
... Solar Model since it assumes neutrino oscillations- which cannot be tested without measuring their 'flavours' simultaneously much nearer the Sun. Both the Standard Solar Model and Laszlo's model fail on the same fundamental observational grounds. 1. Eddington, A.S., The Internal Constitution of the Stars, pp. 272-3. 2. See more detailed argument in C&CR 2000:1, 'The Electric Universe', p. 80. 3. Physics World, Vol. 14 No. 7, July 2001. See http://physicsweb.org/article/world/14/7/10. Eric Crew replies to Wal Thornhill I 'dragged in' Wal's and Laszlo Kortvelyessy's ideas about 'the Electric Universe' because Charles Ginenthal abruptly rejected the idea of stellar energy being caused by interior nuclear reactions. He suggested rather inexplicably 'piezo-electromagnetism' instead. I assumed that he was probably influenced by Wal's ideas, described in SIS literature, so I decided a few comments on this were appropriate. Like Wal, I am always willing to change my mind 'if a better idea comes ...
4. Gravity-defying Gyros Come Down To Earth [Science Frontiers Website]
... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 69: May-Jun 1990 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects Gravity-defying gyros come down to earth It didn't take long for physicsts to rush into their labs to repeat the Japanese gyroscope experiments. The thought that a spinning mass might lose weight was just too horible to contemplate. Two replications of the Japanese experiment have been reported so far. "James E. Faller and his colleagues at the Joint Institute for Laboratory Astrophysics in Boulder, Colo., repeated the Japanese experiment by looking for signs of weight loss in a spinning gyroscope consisting of a brass top about 2 inches in diameter sealed in a small plastic chamber. 'We conclude that within our experimental sensitivity, which is approximately 35 times larger than needed to see the effect reported...there is no weight change of the type...described.'" (Anonymous; "An Absence of Antigravity," Science News, 137:127, 1990. Cr. F. Hanisch) "Now T.J. Quinn and A. ...
5. The Day The Laws Of Physics Changed [Science Frontiers Website]
... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 118: Jul-Aug 1998 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects The Day The Laws Of Physics Changed Well, maybe there weren't such things as "days" as we now know them back when the universe was very young. In fact, "time" then might have been different from "time" now. This sounds like so much physics-speak; but, seriously, during the birth pangs of the universe, there seems to have been what cosmologists call a "phase change," a mysterious moment when the laws of physics suddenly became more complex. You can reasonably ask: "How can supposedly immutable physical laws change?" The answer seems to be that anything can happen when something is being made from nothing! This apparent plasticity in the laws governing the cosmos is suggested by observations of how galaxies in the early universe were distributed. The standard theory for the origin of the universe predicts that clumps of galaxies of all sizes were created early on. This is ...
6. SHARP Drive [Alternative Science Website]
... the strange quality of inertia. This new concept of inertia also points to a new understanding of gravity, since gravity and inertia are inextricably intertwined. Hal Putoff goes even further. Pointing to recent success in manipulating atomic processes by controlling zero-point fields in the lab, Puthoff says "If we are right that both gravity and inertia stem from the zero-point field, then someday we might be able to manipulate both." This, In turn, means quite simply a warp drive. And Puthoff's idea is not merely a twinkle in physics's eye. In 1994 Miguel Alcubierre, a theoretical physicist at the University of Wales published a paper called "The Warp Drive: Hyper-Fast Travel Within General Relativity." Alcubierre showed it is theoretically possible to distort space to allow warp speed travel: to literally expand the volume of space-time behind a starship, while compressing it up ahead-- like feeding a tent pole through its sleeve by bunching up the fabric ahead, and pulling it along behind. Alcubierre showed that space-time can be similarly manipulated. The position of a starship ...

... in such a way to make a very close pass. And even if you did get it into exactly the right spot, the other planets are always perturbing things, as well as the Earth constantly doing its dance with the Moon, etc. -Mike From: Ian Tresman, email@example.com Date: Mon, 10 Jul 1995 21:43:10 GMT Doesn't Uranus have two satellite in nearly the same orbit: as one catches up with the other, they swap orbits From: Emory F. Bunn, firstname.lastname@example.org Date: 11 Jul 1995 02:00:08 GMT Surely not. That's not a possible orbital configuration for a pair of moons. From: Jorn Wilms, wilms@jilaul.Colorado.EDU Date: Tue, 11 Jul 1995 09:22:01-0600 Well, it is a possible orbital configuration, but its not realized in the satellite system of Uranus, but in the satellite system of Saturn. They're called Janus and Epimetheus discovered in 1966 (first thought to be one satellite, but because it were two, the whole orbital ...
