71. EINSTEIN'S NEMESIS: DI HERCULIS [Science Frontiers Website]
... violates general relativity in the same way. It seems that wherever gravitational fields are extremely strong and space-time, therefore, highly distorted, general relativity fails. Ironically, it was a very similar sort of astronomical observation that helped make general relativity a pillar of the scientific edifice early in the 20th. century. The orbit of Mercury precesses a bit faster than Newtonian physics predicts. The application of Einstein's general relativity corrected the calculation of Mercury's rate of precession by just the right amount. Now we may need a new theory to correct Einstein-- at least where time-space is sharply bent! (Naeye, Robert; "Was Einstein Wrong?"

72. A Dent in the Space-Time Fabric? [Thunderbolts Website]
... fuel runs out and their cores “implode into a point of infinite density”. The “rebound” that follows produces a supernova explosion that blows away the outer layers of the star. But the gravity of the collapsed star is so great that, within a boundary called the “event horizon”, nothing is able to escape, not even light. And that ’ s why we can ’ t see a black hole, astronomers say. Astronomers also say that the gravitational tug of a black hole is sufficient to distort Einstein ’ s “space-time fabric”. And that means it could affect the movement of matter falling into this celestial glutton. The X-ray emissions from GRO J1655-40 are sporadic — long periods of relative calm followed by shorter periods of more intense activity with emissions millions of times greater than during the quiescent phase. As reported on Space.com, some scientists began to wonder if the blinking pattern of X-ray activity is “related to how matter accumulates around the black hole”. The black hole is said to be stealing gas from a companion ...
73. A MISSED OPPORTUNITY? [Pensee]
... of Relativity and created a stir in all the civilized world. But soon questions were asked, the results were placed in doubt and since then every total solar eclipse was sought out by new expeditions, new photographs, and new checking. An unequivocal result was eluding the scientific world. The present expedition to Africa will not supply it either. According to the General Theory of Relativity a beam of light from a fixed star is deflected slightly from its rectilinear path when passing near a massive body. The massive body, suggested by Einstein, is the sun. Jupiter's mass, a thousand times smaller than the solar mass, would produce a deflection too small for precise measurement. During a total solar eclipse the star light is visible. Photographs are made of the eclipsed sun together with the optically nearby stars. Then the photographs are compared with the relative position of the same stars during the night; sometimes the expedition even prefers to return half a year later to make night pictures of the same stars. The ray of a star that grazes the sun on ...
74. A Dent in the Space-Time Fabric? (2) [Thunderbolts Website]
... and with another meaning in the theoretical world of mathematics. Some cosmological theories talk of 26 dimensions and parallel universes, which serve only to astound and confuse those living in the physical world of 3-dimensions. As one physicist puts it, "Any theory where time is represented as a fourth dimension does not represent reality If the math is correct but does not represent reality; then, as far as factually describing reality, the math is meaningless, unreasonable and ambiguous”. “The dent is the sort of thing predicted by Albert Einstein ’ s theory of general relativity. It affects the movement of matter falling into the black hole”. Fact: The “black hole” is a theory not a fact. In his theory of general relativity, Einstein proposed a geometrical concept of gravity, suggesting that it was caused by the warping of 3-dimensional space in some “extra dimension” in the presence of mass. A growing number of scientists dispute the principle. A common 3-dimensional illustration of the “geometric” theory of gravity shows a rubber sheet stretched by ...
75. Velikovsky: The Score of Success [SIS C&C Review $]
... the concept appeared in 1950, it has since been abundantly confirmed. Velikovsky claimed the existence of a magnetosphere above the terrestrial ionosphere. It was discovered by Van Allen in 1958. He claimed it reached as far as the lunar orbit. This was confirmed by Ness in 1964. He claimed that interplanetary space was magnetic and that the field centred on the Sun and rotated with it. This was discovered by Pioneer 5 and Explorer 10 in 1960. Velikovsky's claim that Jupiter would be found to sent out radio noises was accepted by Einstein as a decisive test on which their prolonged debate as to the electromagnetic nature of the Solar System would hinge. Einstein received the news of their discovery on 8 April, 1955- eight days before his death. In 1960 Prof. V. A. Bailey of the University of Sydney calculated that the Sun carries a net negative charge of around 10^19 volts. Ralph E. Juergens has since developed a detailed electromagnetic model for the Solar System which accounts for the recently discovered abundance of electromagnetic phenomena- in sharp contrast ...
76. Jupiter's Magnetic Field and Io's Volcanoes [SIS C&C Review $]
... Volcanoes Extra One of the best known of Velikovsky's successful "advance claims" regarding the solar system concerns the planet Jupiter. In a lecture delivered in October 1953 he stated: "In Jupiter and its moons we have a system not unlike the solar family. The planet is cold, yet its gases are in motion. It appears probable to me that it sends out radio noises as do the sun and the stars." (Earth in Upheaval, Supplement: "Recent Finds in Astronomy".) In correspondence with Albert Einstein, Velikovsky (June 1954) repeated his view that Jupiter is not an inert gravitational body, and that it would be found to emit radio noises of electromagnetic (non-thermal) origin; and he offered to stake their debate on the role of electromagnetism in the mechanics of the solar system on this claim. (See Velikovsky's "On the Advance Claim of Jupiter's Radio noises". KRONOS III:1, 1977, pp. 27-30.) Einstein reacted sceptically, yet nine days before his death the accidental discovery of strong ...

78. Flattened Sun Means Trouble For Einstein [Science Frontiers Website]
... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 21: May-Jun 1982 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects Flattened Sun Means Trouble For Einstein Recent measurements of the sun's diameter by P. Goode and H. Hill show: (1) The sun is "ringing like a bell" due to constant sunquakes; and (2) The sun is flattened enough at itse poles to signifcantly affect the precession of Mercury's orbit. The gravitational influence of the sun's bulge is so large that it, in effect, competes with relativistic effects as an explanation of Mercury's precession. Goode, in fact, has suggested that the Theory of Relativity must be in error. (Anonymous; "Reputed Mistake Found in Einstein's Theory of Relativity," Baltimore Sun, April 6, 1982.

79. Innate Knowledge [Science Frontiers Website]
... . Gauss was not certain that mathematics really matched reality perfectly. (His experiment was inconclusive.) Today, in most scientific edu-cation and practice, it is customary to assume that mathematics is not only a faithful mirror of the real world but that it can actually lead us to new insights into reality. Unfortunately, two facts mar this idealistic picture. Mathematics itself contains contradictions and does not have a solid foundation; that is, it is "impure." Some portions of reality seem to confound mathematics; for example, Einstein found Riemannian geometry and tensor analysis imperfect for formulating the Theory of Relativity. Despite this disappointment, Einstein maintained his belief that God does not play dice with the universe. Some more recent scientists suggest that God not only plays dice but throws them where they cannot be seen! Despite the acknowledged deficiencies, it is clearly more than a stroke of luck that mathematics describes so much of reality so accurately. And here is the spooky part of the whole business. In formulating their web of logic, mathematicians make many more or ...

Ich bewundere Ihr dramatisches Talent und auch die Kunst und Geradheit von Thakeray, der brüllenden astronomischen Löwen dazu gebracht hat, eingermassen den königlichen Schwanz einzuziehen unter nicht völliger Respektierung der Wahrheit. Ich würde glücklich sein, wenn auch Sie die ganze Episode von der drolligen Seite geniessen konnten. Unvorstellbare Korrespondenz-Schulden und ungelesene zugesändte Manuskripte zwingen mich zu Kurze. Vielen Dank Euch beiden und Freundliche wünche. Ihr A. Einstein Translation: 17.III.55 Dear Mr. and dear Mrs Velikovsky! At the occasion of this unpropitious birthday you have presented me once more with the fruits of an almost eruptive productivity. I look forward with pleasure to reading the historical book that does not bring into danger the toes of my guild. How it stands with the toes of the other faculty, I do not know as yet. I think of the touching prayer: ? Holy St. Florian, spare my house, put fire to others!? I have already ...
