51. "Worlds in Collision": Reviews and Reviewers [Journals] [Aeon]
... Day the Sun Stood Still," Eric Larrabee's article in the January, 1950, Harper's. Hard on its heels, Newsweek (Jan. 9, pp. 16-19) called Velikovsky "a broad gauge savant with an incredible field of competence in the sciences" and even claimed that he "arrives at ideas hypothesized this month by Albert Einstein in his new and untested theory of gravitation." The Larrabee article also inspired The 0regonian editors to note on Jan. 9 that: [a ] "high percentage of those whose fields are invaded and their facts questioned" by Velikovsky "may be expected to rise to the challenge. The minds that will be stimulated by this ...
52. On the Advance Claim of Jupiter's Radionoises [Journals] [Kronos]
... its rotation creates the magnetic field permeating the solar system; I also contemplated the existence of magnetic shells that would be the determinative of the planetary distances (Bode's Law). Since 1941, 1 insisted that electromagnetic interrelations in the solar system cannot be ignored- this was the theme of my long debate, in writing and oral, with Einstein- from August 1952 to his death in April of 1955. At some point in our debate (in a letter written in June 1954) I offered to stake our debate on whether Jupiter sends out radionoises (of non-thermal nature, as I already claimed in my Forum Lecture of 14 October, 1954), to which he reacted ...
53. Mars and the search for Life [Journals] [Kronos]
... Earth, if extra-terrestrial beings sent probes to our planet and landed one vehicle in the arid, barren Sahara Desert, and the other one near the polar ice cap, the chances for picking up organic life would be scarce indeed, but the probability and propensity does exist. During the years 1947-1950, my father discussed with his friend Albert Einstein many stimulating and explorative topics, one of them being the existence of life evolution on Mars. It has been stated time and time again that the environment of Mars is too hostile for organic matter, what with the lack of moisture, the absence of a substantial magnetic field and the extremely rarified atmosphere to shield off ultraviolet and other ...
54. Society News: SIS Autumn Conference 2000 [Journals] [SIS Review]
... 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 ...
55. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... It's rubbish by Jove", 24 July, p.311), considers the idea that Jupiter may once have been a neutron star a most amusing one. Well, as he says, it's a free world. But is it?" JUPITER'S X-RAYS - New Scientist 14/8 /80 p.522 Results from the orbiting Einstein observatory have indicated that Jupiter emits X-rays. It is therefore the only planet so far to be detected to emit X-rays, other than Earth itself. It is thought that the X-rays are produced when highspeed electrons trapped in the Jovian magnetic field spiral downwards and hit gas atoms in the atmosphere. RELATIVITY RULES O.K .? - ...
56. On the Pendulum Experiment (Vox Popvli) [Journals] [Kronos]
... was an elegant test of Einstein's Special Relativity Theory. Yet, Velikovsky's theory of gravitation is potentially at least as significant as his work in the fields of astronomy and history. At least one scientist experimentally demonstrated a relationship between gravity and electricity in the late 1920's; and an experiment with a charged torque pendulum performed by a former pupil of Einstein yielded unexpected results. This research into "electro-gravitics" is documented in an obscure book entitled Ether-Technology: a Rational Approach to Gravity Control, by Rho Sigma (pseudonym), published by the author and CSA Press in 1977. Rho Sigma is described as a "European-American space scientist and research consultant" who prefers to remain anonymous. ...
57. The Velikovsky Archive [Journals] [Aeon]
... in the making since the 1960s. Velikovsky sought advice on this manuscript from a number of colleagues, particularly Ralph Juergens. The leading section, which set the tone for the entire book was titled "On Prediction in Science." [1 ] The importance of prediction was driven home to Velikovsky in the course of his discussions with Albert Einstein, and he laid great stock in the ability of his theory to predict such phenomena as the physical features and atmospheric composition of the planets. Accordingly, each chapter was structured in a way that explained Velikovsky's reconstruction of the history of the subject matter (the ocean, Venus, the Sun), and the implications of this history ...
... to Russia during World War I to study law and ancient history at Moscow's Free University. In 1915, he was finally admitted to Moscow University, receiving his medical degree in 1921. Shortly thereafter, Velikovsky moved to Berlin, where he founded and edited an international series of monographs by outstanding Jewish scholars, Scripta Universitatis, for which Albert Einstein edited the mathematics-physics section and became acquainted with Velikovsky. (His friendship with Einstein would continue until the latter's death in 1955. In Einstein's later years, there were many long evenings of discussion with Velikovsky in Princeton, and, as Velikovsky's supporters often remind us, Worlds in Collision was the one book which lay open on Einstein's desk ...
59. The Velocity of Light In Relation to Moving Bodies [Journals] [Pensee]
... material object (also a measuring rod) traveling through the ether is shortened by a very small amount; the East-West distance in the laboratory apparatus (interferometer), being shorter, is traversed by a beam of light traveling a little slower in the same time that the longer North-South distance is crossed by a swifter beam (1 ). Einstein, however, generalized this idea by assuming that the velocity of light in vacuum is constant in relation to all bodies, whether in motion or at rest. The ether was discarded in the Special Theory of Relativity, and Einstein embraced the quanta theory of light. Both space and time lost the attribute of constancy, and light ( ...
