81. Abbreviations, Glossary and Bibliography [Books] [de Grazia books]
... . magnetite is a black to brownish metallic stone with magnetic properties. The legendary lodestone is one of the magnetites. The magnetites are formed of octahedral crystals of mineral whose chemical structure contains the unit, XFe204 . X may be Fe, Mg, Ni, Zn, or Mn. The first is most common; the last two are ... , (Harvard: Cambridge, 1978 p. 13, 339b21) Armstrong, T. P., see Krimigis Arnold, James R.

82. ASTROBLEMES AND GASTROBLEMES [Journals] [Aeon]
... clay (as opposed to siderophile metals only), first by DePaoli et al., and then by Hildebrand and Boynton and Badjukov et al., showed that the chemistry required an aerosol derived substantially from "oceanic crust" along with some "continental type crust." Quantity calculations led Hildebrand and Boynton to suggest that a 200 km ... boulders locally, thus contrasting with previously discussed injection melts, which have entrained only fine particles ( -10 mesh for the most part.) The bronzite granophyre rock is chemically of lamprophyric-dioritic composition with elements of assimilation from adjacent country rock. Regarded as a magmatic component of Vredefort structure, its injection features are intrinsic to the diapiric aspects of ...
83. The Origins of Modern Geological Theory [Journals] [Kronos]
... the Royal Academy in France and the Philosophical Society in London, had had a much broader base. There had been a few abortive attempts to start specialized scientific societies in chemistry and in botany, but they had come to nothing. The Geological Society of London was really the first specialized scientific society, and its early growth was unprecedented-in fact ... Two were booksellers. Another, Comte JacquesLouis, had fled the French Revolution. Four were Quakers, and two, William Allen and Humphrey Davy, were independently wealthy amateur chemists. Only one, George Greenough, had any training in geology or mineralogy- having paid a visit to the Academy at Freiberg some years earlier along with Goethe-but he did ...

... , coupled with Talbott's own thermodynamic study, that led to my 1979 critical piece on Venus in Industrial Research/Development, (13) which for reasons involving the bulk chemistry of the Cytherean planet also drew the attention of the American Institute of Chemists. To digress, nothing substantive came of this latter, nor did anything come of handing ... copy personally to MIT's Phillip Morrison at an encounter in San Francisco when we were introduced by a mutual friend, nor- to give this matter perspective- did anything come from its similarly attracting the rapt attention of my garbage collector. I did, however, attend a Venus Orbiter update at NASA Ames early in 1979, and during the ...
86. The Establishment of Gradualism [Books]
... Corsi, a science historian with University posts in Cassino and Paris, wrote in The Age of Lamarck: "The younger naturalists enthused over Condillac's philosophy, Lavoisier's advances in chemistry, and - above all - the new chemistry's `philosophical nomenclature' and HaŁy's recent discoveries in geometrical crystallography. These men yearned to deliver natural history from Buffon's patronage ... They foresaw the end of natural history as a literary genre and a favourite arena for theoretical speculation and philosophical cosmogony. In its place, they would introduce rigorous procedures for naturalistic investigation, modelled on the logical rigor of Linnaean taxonomy and the epistemological criteria of Lockean origin, reworked in France by Condillac, his disciples and his followers. The ...

Written by California chemist and Pensee contributor, Fred Jueneman, the article served as an engaging introduction to Velikovsky and his views. (With a controlled circulation of 90,000, IR's ...
... data. Venus lacks a planetary soil covering its entire rocky surface. Venus' hydrofluoric-hydrochloric age Sagan has stated that the sulfuric acid cloud model, "is consistent with the chemistry of the Venus atmosphere, in which hydrofluoric and hydrochloric acid have also been found."16 What Sagan has not discussed is that these acids, when they react ... be weathering of its rocks at the surface. Eric Burgess informs us that, "The rocks of Venus undergo different types of weathering [breakdown than the Earth]. Chemical weathering would be expected to decompose olivines, pyroxenes, quartz and feldspars into magnesite, tremolite, dolomite and sulfides and sulfates. Mechanical weathering would be expected to disintegrate ...

... (from A to B), but as their electron clouds meet a slight electrical repulsion occurs (from B to C); then electron coupling, as in a chemical bond, produces an increasing attraction between the atoms (from C to D) until a critical separation is attained, when electron decoupling, described elsewhere as internuclear repulsion ... (Clube). All of the dilemmas cited by Clube as confronting astronomers can be resolved in a universe where electric forces are conceived to dominate. For a long time chemists who concern themselves with the mechanics of collisions between atoms (which are admittedly dominated by the forces between electric charges) have agreed that a collision between two atoms can ...
