151. Venus An Interim Report [Journals] [SIS Review]
... decks and the lower atmosphere of Venus. Kerr states: "Why there are cloud layers, what they are made of besides sulphuric acid, and how they affect the chemistry of the atmosphere below them .. . remain unknown." (op. cit., p. 292) There seems to be a reluctance to admit the ... M. Greenberg has made the reasonable suggestion: "The paucity of detected oxygen in Venus' atmosphere may be the result of the oxygen's being rapidly consumed by the mysterious chemical fires' on the planet's surface." (Kronos IV:4 , 1979, p. 9. fn.) 6. Atmospheric Sulphur TOP LAYER 70-56 km ...
152. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Review]
... core. Vinland Update (Scientific American, March 2004, p. 12) The ongoing controversy about the authenticity of this supposedly 15th century map has recently centred around the chemical composition of its ink, with chemists presenting evidence both for and against the ink being modern. An historian, however, reports historical anachronisms and suggests that a German ... priest, a specialist in 15th century maps, created the map in the 1930's to tease the Nazis. Pharaonic Plagues (New Scientist, 21.2 .04. p. 14) Bubonic plague was deemed to have arisen in the 6th century AD among Asian gerbils; now one researcher has suggested that the disease was originally carried by ...

... between science and pseudoscience and chided for not being able to bring himself to mention NASA's official interpretation of the Viking search for life on Mars, namely, that Mars is chemically, not biologically, active. The end of the review cites four instances in which Sagan's knowledge of recent scientific facts is lacking precision, and one speculation so fantastic ... been listened to respectfully. Weekend book reviewers seem to have a facility for proposing one-legged principles that are embarrassingly easy to topple. For example, Linus Pauling, the renowned chemist, has not found his speculations on the role of Vitamin C in human nutrition and cancer prevention well-listened to by scientists, despite having two Nobel Prizes. The reason ...
154. The Not So Stable Sun [Journals] [Kronos]
... . 2. Tungsten boils at 6200 K (5927 C) according to the table of "Melting and Boiling Points of the Elements," page D-103, Handbook of Chemistry and Physics, 49th edition, Chemical Rubber Company (Cleveland, 1968). 3. Electron velocities of the order of 425 km/s are required to explain ... from the continuum of outflowing solar light. Over twenty-seven thousand dark spectral lines remove about nine percent of the energy from sunlight. In absorption, sixty-eight of the ninety-two natural chemical elements are observed. No physical model has ever been devised to explain even the gross characteristics of this (Fraunhofer) spectrum .( 25) Above the photosphere the ...
155. Thoth Vol I, No. 5: March 14, 1997 [Journals] [Thoth]
... reaction takes place at the lower temperature, 820 degrees F, to form a radar reflective mineral. This requires the unlikely situation that all peaks on Venus have the same chemistry. A much simpler answer is that the diffuse electric discharges of St. Elmo's fire, occurring preferentially at the highest altitudes of mountain peaks, forms a highly conductive ... 2 Pioneer probes as they descended on the night hemisphere. The glow increased on descent and may have been caused by a form of St. Elmo's fire and/or chemical reactions in the atmosphere, close to the surface. In D. Grinspoon's recent book, Venus Revealed', he writes on p.245, "One of ...
... Northern Graduate School... He is a scientist and author whose experimental background is divided between research and engineering applications. His scope and competence in mathematical physics and physical chemistry are evident from his two volume Philosophy and Unified Science, published in 1977 by the international firm of Ganesh and Co. in Madras. Dr. David Lee Hilliker's ... reaches the surface of Venus, the rest is produced by some sources in Venus' atmosphere near or at the surface. This accords well with Velikovsky's hypothesis that there are chemical fires on Venus. A real greenhouse So far, the amount of water needed to trap sunlight is not established, and sunlight of sufficient quantity is also greatly in ...

Ibid., pp. 11-15. 26. Eric ... several near-collisions, Venus was incandescently hot and contained hydrocarbons. It is not yet clear whether, and, if so, to what extent any of those hydrocarbons have been chemically modified over the centuries. It depends upon how much oxygen is or was available for their combustion, how many other chemical processes have been taking place, and so ...
158. Fire and Ash [Books] [de Grazia books]
... of crust; it is considered that granites carry on down to a basalt not unlike that of the ocean bottoms. When and how the granites formed is unclear; their chemistry is distinctive. A final part of the continents is covered by sedimentary rock. Sedimentary rock is formed from transports of materials by wind, water, and ice. ... is not impossible to detect calcination in soils and clays, but the subject has attracted few geo-chemists. Soils and young marine sediments of northeastern and offshore America reveal, under chemical analysis, evidence of a fiery origin in that they contain polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons . These are carcinogenic and mutagenic. It is possible that their incidence is ...
159. Electric Stars in a Gravity-Less Electrified Cosmos [Journals] [SIS Review]
... can behave. For example, the Sun's mass and luminosity are conceptually linked to the kind and number of atoms it contains, yet really little is known of the Sun's chemistry. We can not see inside the Sun. It could be rocky, so that for all we know the Sun could be a hunk of granite surrounded by gas ... its present form after a long, slow metamorphosis of its original surface. Biological evolution required an equally long time to allow living things to be generated by chance from common chemical precursors, and then for life forms to emerge from the sea-bottom ooze as amoebas, some to aggregate and become fish, some to fly off as birds and others ...
