121. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... Earth's early atmosphere was treated to electric discharges, have been repeated with simulations of the atmospheres of Titan and Uranus. Titan's nitrogen rich atmosphere yielded a great variety of prebiotic chemicals; the Uranus atmosphere on the other hand produced solid hydrocarbons. Furthermore the optical properties of these hydrocarbons account for the hues which tinge otherwise blue-green Uranus. The Cornell ... that the fundamental characteristics of matter are order and complexity, flies in the face of kinetic theory, entropy and the statistical basis of quantum physics, which successive generations of chemists and physicists have been reared on." Magnetic reversals and sea level source: Nature 332, (1988), p. 211 Several workers have been considering the ...
122. Thoth Vol I, No. 11: May 3, 1997 [Journals] [Thoth]
... of ancient life on Mars, a Purdue University scientist says the rocky fragments can tell us something about the early life of the planet itself. Michael Lipschutz, professor of chemistry who has analyzed trace elements in 11 of the 12 known Martian meteorites, says the samples contain a different mix of volatile elements than do rock samples from Earth, ... formed," Lipschutz says. Prior studies of the oxygen isotopes in the Martian meteorites indicated that they all came from the same planet. But other studies, using nonvolatile chemical markers, had revealed differences in their composition, indicating that the samples had encountered different experiences as the planet formed and evolved. "Our study is the first to ...
123. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Review]
... 20, New Scientist, 16.3 .02, p. 24, Science Frontiers No.143, Sept. -Oct. 2002, p. 3 Ocean chemistry is supposed to be constant but now analysis of ancient salt deposits indicates the magnesium-calcium ratio has varied over time, which could affect the evolution of marine organisms. Magma ... . People have long made a connection between magnetic fields (e .g . from power lines) and health problems but no one has been able to explain why. Chemists have now found that proteins in cell membranes act like magnets and can therefore be aligned by an external field, causing disruption of normal cell functioning. GEOLOGY One Crystal ...
124. Intensity, Scope and Suddenness [Books] [de Grazia books]
... floods and tides, is a difficult problem for geophysics. The evidence is of a kind elaborated earlier in this book - the search for the sources of oceanic water, chemistry of seawater, and so on. Still it may be possible to discover a true exoterrestrial deluvial sediment by, if nothing else, the exclusion of all other explanations ... than norms of the twentieth century, happening in a period of less than a year, and often continuing for many years." And perhaps one should seek "Poisonous chemicals in similar strata at 4+ points at least 300 km from each other." But the mention of poisons could send one in search of "Six or more ...
125. Thoth Vol III, No. 12: Aug 31, 1999 [Journals] [Thoth]
... to see the isotopic makeup of the chlorine at Io. On earth the ratio is Cl37:Cl35 = 1:3 NASA: The discovery also has implications for the chemistry of Io's atmosphere, he said. On Earth, relatively small amounts of chlorine from human-made CFC's play a major role in breaking down fragile molecules like ozone in the ... much larger volume of Martian rock that would have been removed from deeper levels by an electrical discharge capable of creating the stupendous Valles Marineris (the deeper material would lack the chemical signature of surface material identified by the Viking probes of the soil). From what Wal has described dynamically in electrical interactions, I can imagine active transport of atmosphere ...
126. For the Record. . . [Journals] [Kronos]
... did not settle the question of change itself. Change is intrinsically discontinuous." Lippman then pointed out the shortcomings of Newtonian philosophy in the modern day fields of physics and chemistry where discontinuity and complex transformations are highly prominent. "Thus, at every level of science below that of life, metamorphosis is found. In each, discontinuous as ... : the natural radioactivity of the soil, the waters, and the air; the cosmic ray flux; and a sizable remainder of causes, largely unknown, possibly random chemical changes in the hereditary material. All of the foregoing contribute to the spontaneous' mutation rate and are regarded as spontaneous' mutations. To some extent, the word ...
127. EARLY GLASSMAKING AND CHRONOLOGICAL PUZZLES [Journals] [Aeon]
... tiny and closely-knit network of experts. Glass researchers, however, are not at all content with the state of their art. What they seem to know best is the chemical composition of ancient glasses.(6 ) When it comes to techniques of glass-forming, there is much less consensus. And if one turns to the chronology of early ... dismiss what was taken for granted in the ancient world. Under the title "Was Pliny the Elder Correct in His Report on the Origin of Glassmaking?" the German chemist Hans Lober- inspired by Elisabeth Haevernick- recently published the results of experiments concerned with Pliny's specifications, which never before were practically tested, in the Festschrift for the ...
128. 1421: The Year China Discovered America (Book Review) [Journals] [Aeon]
... map overlays a yellow line, giving the appearance of antiquity by the "bleeding" of the black ink over time. But, unfortunately, the two ink lines were chemically determined not to be from the same bottle. It's little wonder the critics thought it was a clever forgery. However, in counter-argument, it is also known that ... have been drawn by Norsemen as they had an oral rather than a literary tradition, and so it, too, was considered suspect. Walter McCrone, the late physical chemist and critic of the map, and personally known to this reviewer, considered it a forgery because of the presence of anatase in the ink. Anatase is one crystalline ...

... years he served as the physicist reporting directly to the Chief Scientist of Rockwell International, Dr. William McDonald (MIT). In that capacity, he developed a physical chemistry laboratory and wrote an entire library of computer programs, some of which became famous in technology. His paper on gas chromatography and mass spectrometry was used both in the ... , Sir Arthur & Gravity and Fermat's Last Theorem. A consultant in physics and applied mathematics, Dr. Talbott was commissioned by Bondline Products in Norwalk, California, for chemical and physical analysis of Newsom's advanced oil recovery system, and has received both professional and academic awards throughout his distinguished career.

130. Worlds in Collision in Macmillan's Catalogues [Journals] [Kronos]
... Velikovsky Affair, the other two scholars were Edward M. Thorndike (head of the Physics Dept. at Queens College) and Clarence S. Sherman (associate professor of chemistry at Cooper Union). While they had their criticisms, none recommended against publication. They were selected because McCurdy knew them and respected their judgment. A fourth evaluation ... it is doubtful their opinions would have carried any weight with the scientists who protested to Macmillan. On this point, Edmondson commented: "Approval by two physicists and a chemist whose names I do not recognize would not make me feel any better about the publication of a crank book'. Macmillan should have consulted some experts in the field ...
