41. Einstein Questioned [Science Frontiers Website]
... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 90: Nov-Dec 1993 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects Einstein Questioned Aberration: The apparent angular displacement of the position of a celestial body in the direction of motion of the observer, caused by the combination of the velocity of the observer and the velocity of light.( McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms) An Abstract. Stellar aberration, discovered nearly three centuries ago by Bradley, was immediately recognized as a phenomenon owing to the velocity of the earth in its orbit around the sun. Einstein provided an explanation of aberration in his famous 1905 paper using his new relativity theory, and his explanation remains essentially without modification in many modern textbooks. Herein, we show that his explanation is very much in disagreement with measurement. (Hayden, Howard C.; paper to be published in Galilean Electrodynamics, vol. 4, no. 5, 1993.) A Comment. The essence of Prof. Hayden's main argument is that, if stellar aberration depended on the ...

In the mid-1980's, astronomers discovered these four quasars, with redshifts about z= 1.7, buried deep in the heart of a galaxy with a low redshift of z= .04. (The central spot in this image is not the whole galaxy, but only the brightest part of the galaxy's nucleus.) This could have been seen as a crucial verification of Halton Arp's discordant redshift associations. It could have been proof that the redshift-equals-distance relationship is fatally flawed. Instead, Einstein's space-warping principle was invoked, and astronomers announced they had discovered a single distant quasar split into four images by the gravity of the foreground galaxy. A galaxy-sized fun-house ...

... beam that travels at right angles to the earth ’ s direction of travel. If the ether exists there should be a minute – but measurable – drag effect on a beam of light that will delay it and show up as ‘ interference fringes ’ in the interferometer. The experiment shows a 'null result'-- no matter how the interferometer is orientated with respect to the earth's movement, there is no measurable ether drag. 1905- 1915. This experimental finding throws physics into a quandary for a decade or more until Albert Einstein comes to the rescue with his Theory of Relativity. The ether does not exist, says Einstein, and light travels at constant velocity regardless of the speed of its source. These findings and the ideas of relativity become the foundation stones of physics in the twentieth century and are universally accepted. These are the notes taken by generations of students. But, as Michelson and Morley ’ s experiment affected theoretical physics more than perhaps any experiments since Galileo and Newton, then one might expect its results to have been analysed with the ...
45. Society News: SIS Autumn Conference 2000 [SIS C&C Review $]
... not allowed unless firmly proven by physical evidence and, since we must proceed step by step, year by year, there is nothing that impels us to assume that imaginary years existed. Whelton ended by calling for a new system of dating, B2K, Before the Year 2000. B2K dating assumes nothing about the past and anchors chronology where the anchor belongs, in the present. John Crowe then took the stage to give us an entertaining presentation of 'Velikovsky's Challenge to Astronomy', which contained many quotations of letters between Velikovsky and Einstein. What is sad in this correspondence is that Einstein obviously was not willing to entertain any ideas beyond conventional teaching as far as the history of our planet was concerned. He is also quite insulting to Velikovsky, when he says, for example 'However, it is evident to every sensible physicist that these catastrophes can have nothing to do with the planet Venus...', thereby denying that Velikovsky was sensible! The argument he puts forward, that a change in the Earth' s inclination would have totally destroyed the ...

... and Glass's high-speed oral presentation left something to be desired, too. Still, there was a lot to be gained from listening to Glass who, after all, is one of today's most important composers, one, moreover, in a pivotal position on the verge of classical, pop and jazz. Known to the movie-going public through scores such as Koyaanisqatsi and more recently Mishima, Glass still derives most of his reputation from three major operas. The first (and, many would say, best) of these, the 1976 Einstein on the Beach, was a co-production with Robert (CIVIL WarS) Wilson. Glass explained that he did not initially think of Einstein as an opera; its classification as such derived from the fact that its large scale made it fit only in opera houses. Satyagraha, about the young Gandhi, followed in 1980, and at the request of the director of the Stuttgart opera Glass then undertook to work on a piece to complete the trilogy. (" Germans like that," he said.) His attention was drawn ...
47. Crack in Einstein's Pedestal [SIS Internet Digest $]
... Jonathan Leake, Science Editor Scientists claim they have broken the ultimate speed barrier: the speed of light. In research carried out in the United States, particle physicists have shown that light pulses can be accelerated to up to 300 times their normal velocity of 186,000 miles per second. The implications, like the speed, are mind-boggling. On one interpretation it means that light will arrive at its destination almost before it has started its journey. In effect, it is leaping forward in time. Wal Thornhill comments: If Einstein was wrong about light then there need be no connection between space and time. It is far simpler to discard his old model altogether. If the phenomenon of light is caused by near- instantaneous signalling then there is such a thing as Universal Time, at least in our galaxy, and there can be no time travel. This is an "uncommon-sense" conclusion as well....

After considerable research and development, the Astronaut Pen was developed at a cost of about $1 million U.S. The pen worked and also enjoyed some modest success as a novelty item back here on Earth. The Soviet Union, faced with the same problem, used a pencil. Electrical force is defined as something which causes motion of electrical charge; an electrical charge is something which exerts electric force.-- Arthur Eddington (1882-1944), British astronomer. The physicist's greatest tool is his wastebasket.-- Albert Einstein Classical physics has been superseded by quantum theory: quantum theory is verified by experiments. Experiments must be described in terms of classical physics.-- C. F. von Weizsäcker (1912- ), German physicist and philosopher. Some things have to be believed to be seen.-- Ralph Hodgson on ESP.

From: SIS Internet Digest 2001:1 (Jun 2001) Home¦ Issue Contents Einstein In Need Of Update? www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2001/02/010212075309.htm In 1905, Einstein made major changes to laws of physics when he established his theory of relativity. Now Einstein's laws might also undergo significant changes. Dimitri Nanopoulos, who holds the rank of Distinguished Professor of Physics at Texas A&M University and heads the Houston Advanced Research Center's Group for Astroparticle Physics, established, along with other physicists, that the speed of light, instead of being the constant value of 186,282 miles per second, might change.

... of well known figures. As usual, contributions from those who disagree will be welcome. Mike Baillie's book A Slice Through Time is of great importance and interest to anyone interested in the dating of ancient history and I am pleased to include an in-depth review by Bernard Newgrosh. Society News includes a short article by Benny Peiser about Williams Comyns Beaumont, which caused a stir at the SIS Autumn 1996 meeting. Birgit Liesching has also provided a full and interesting report on the conference in Portland in January 1997. Last month's article on Einstein and relativity theory generated a bumper postbag and some of this should be featured in next issue. There will also be further discussion of David Rohl's book A Test of Time. News News on Velikovsky Books Dr. Ruth Velikovsky Sharon is the younger daughter of Dr Immanuel Velikovsky and is a psychoanalyst living in Princeton, New Jersey. She is the author of ABA: The Glory and the Torment [1, written for the Ginenthal sponsored New York symposium honouring the 100th celebration of the birth of Velikovsky. Together with her sister ...
