431. Contributors [Journals] [Kronos]
... From: Kronos Vol. II No. 2 (Nov 1976) Home | Issue Contents Contributors Robert W. Bass (Ph.D ., Johns Hopkins), Rhodes Scholar, took his doctorate in 1955 under the late Aurel Wintner - then the world's leading authority on celestial mechanics. He undertook three years of post-doctoral research in non-linear mechanics at Princeton under National Medal of Science winner, Solomon Lefschetz. In the late Fifties he developed a new principle in celestial mechanics which not only gives a dynamical explanation for Bode's law but, as shown in 1972 by M. Ovenden, predicts current planetary distances with an average inaccuracy of less than one percent. Currently Dr. ...
432. Vox Populi [Journals] [Aeon]
... to read it? Ev Cochrane replies: Ted Bond is quite right. He can hardly be blamed for accepting the standard translation of Egyptian a?t as "horizon." That's the usual translation by most Egyptologists. Nor are Egyptologists to blame for this situation since this translation seems only natural given the fact that the ancient sun-god, and other celestial bodies, are described as "rising" and "setting" at this celestial site. That said, however, it has long been known that "horizon" does not faithfully describe what the ancient Egyptians meant by a?t. As various Egypt-ologists have shown, the original reference is to a "twin-peaked mountain." But since there ...
433. The Organization of the Solar System [Journals] [Aeon]
... 360-day orbit, which implies a 92.1 , not a 93.0 million mile radius for the Earth's orbit. Thus, to a lesser extent, the Earth is among the 4 planets which Velikovsky felt had experienced recent orbital alterations and associated catastrophes. In the following 35 years, planetary catastrophists have invested substantial energy in analyzing ancient celestial mythologies involving planetary themes. They have also invested substantial energy in historical analysis of that era prior to the 7th century B.C . in a pursuit of better understandings of that catastrophic era. However, relatively little analysis has been directed toward understanding the celestial mechanics of catastrophism. This imbalance probably reflects the interests of Velikovsky himself, ...
434. Solomon's Temple: An Astronomical Observatory [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... world. Such matters, of course, cannot be discussed at length within the framework of this article, but it is my intention to develop these themes, within the near future, in book form. These matters nevertheless lead us to reasons for considering the Temple of Solomon as an astronomical observatory. I have already mentioned the value of celestial observations in the preparation of calendars and navigational charts; let us now review some of the calendric implications. First of all, the calendric needs of the Jews obviously pertained to their ritual system, schedule of sacrifices, and national celebrations and holy days. Directions for the timing of events, laid out in the writings of Moses, ...
435. Evenings With Einstein. File III (Stargazers and Gravediggers) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Stargazers]
... "The scientists make a grave mistake in not studying your book (Worlds in Collision) because of the exceedingly important material it contains." In our debate, which spread over eighteen months, I drove ever closer to a point not necessary for the validation of Worlds in Collision, but of prime importance per se: the revision of celestial mechanics in the face of the accumulated data pointing to the charged state of celestial bodies. When I wrote: "The real cause of indignation against my theory of global catastrophes is the implication that celestial bodies may be charged," he wrote in the margin: "Ja" (" Yes"). (1 ) " ...
436. The Organization of the Solar System, Part II: A Galactic Capture Hypothesis [Journals] [Aeon]
... gyroscope as is a tri-gyro compass. The Sun, Earth, Jupiter, Mars, Mercury, Neptune, Saturn, Uranus, Venus and even Pluto all have spin, and therefore are all gyroscopes. Wheels, tops and the like have relatively high friction in their bearings (or with the table top) slowing their rates of spin. Celestial bodies' spins are resisted only by some solar wind, some spare electrons and other atomic particles, some magnetic effects and some gravitational effects. For our purposes, the heavens can be considered a "frictionless" environment. Torque A torque is a pair of equal and opposite forces imposed on the axis ends of a gyroscope (in ...
437. Kadmos: The Primeval King [Journals] [Kronos]
... was actually a Greek name for the planet Saturn. Writing of the astronomy of the Chaldeans, Diodorus observed that: "[ The planet] named Kronos by the Greeks, which is the most conspicuous and presages more events such as are of greater importance than the others, they call the star of Helios."(5 ) The celestial identification of Helios raises a crucial point in our study of the primeval kings, for it is well known that many of the celebrated god-kings of the ancient world were identified with planets. To name but a few, this is the case with Dumuzi, Osiris, and Quetzelcoatl. The astral nature of ancient gods and heroes has even ...

... behaviour and the physics and chemistry of materials. It was a privilege to know him and I believe that anyone delving into the fundamental questions of Life, The Universe and Everything' will find much of interest in the published work he has left us.

439. Focus [Journals] [SIS Review]
... found among the ranks of alleged heretics and cultists. In addition, FRED JUENEMAN's continuing efforts deserve mention. In 1978 he devoted nine of his "Innovative Notebook" columns in Industrial Research/Development to Velikovskian subjects. His January-June and August-October musings cover a wide range of subjects, discussing magnetism thrice, radiohalos, radioactive dating, Stonehenge, celestial dynamics, the Hymn to Aton and the temperature of Venus. The December issue has a letter from an astronomer at the University of Delaware protesting the celestial dynamics column in June together with Jueneman's undaunted reply [l0]. That column collected the evidence from celestial dynamics supporting Worlds in Collision which CARL SAGAN had entirely "overlooked" in ...
440. Editor's Notes [Journals] [SIS Review]
... 51'. p. 10, Appendix A, penultimate paragraph: The line A shift of the V.E . changes the line of the ecliptic through the stars but does not change the declination of a star' is potentially confusing and needs the qualification Only true if the shift of the V.E . is measured along the celestial equator rather than along the ecliptic, as has hitherto been usual'. There is no fundamental reason why a shift of the V.E . cannot be measured along either the ecliptic or the celestial equator. The historical reasons for adopting the ecliptic are well set out on p. 226 of W.M . Smart's Textbook on ...
