111. A Personal Reminiscence [Journals] [Aeon]
... unfathomable but infallible intellectual figures to whom no problem was insoluble. But already second thoughts about the morality of the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki were casting doubts about the human qualities of scientists, and now Velikovsky was questioning the validity of their science, not at some minor level, but on the very highest plane- the law of Newtonian gravity as applied to planetary motions. If accepted by the public, this could lead to a backlash that would threaten scientific progress at every level. Hence the need to denounce Velikovsky's work and all he stood for if science and scientists were not to suffer a severe decline in the public's estimate. Velikovsky himslef was to state some years later ...

112. Laura Lee Archives [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... Flandern details the eight experiments that test whether the universe is expanding or static, offers alternative explanations for the Red Shift and background microwave radiation (two main "proofs" to the Big Bang) and tears apart the "patches" needed to keep the Big Bang Theory viable. 01/23/01 Tom Van Flandern: Theories of Gravity: What causes the pull of gravity? Though Einstein's curved space-time reigns as the leading theory, you haven't heard it all yet. Forward thinking astronomer Tom Van Flandern reviews the centuries-old debate and alternative theories and argues for his favorite theory of gravity, supported by mathematical formulas, recent lab experiments, and astronomical observations. 12/15 ...

113. Ionizing the Galaxy [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... certain rather sharply bounded regions in space surrounding O-type stars." The presence of wide spread ionization in our galaxy and others therefore implies that something is seriously wrong, or at least very incomplete, with this picture. Wal Thornhill comments: This discovery is another nail in the coffin (if more were needed) for a cosmology driven by gravity alone. I have argued strongly in favor of the new plasma cosmology which proposes that galaxies are giant electrical circuits, for example, carrying power along the arms of our galaxy toward the galactic centre. In this model, it is not necessary to rely only upon ultraviolet radiation to ionize neutral hydrogen atoms. The energy is available in ...

114. Earth Tectonics Viewed from Rock Mechanics [Journals] [SIS Review]
... would have split Pangaea and caused North and South America to separate from Eurasia and Africa. He also agreed that duToit's sphenochasm (see Appendix 1 for definitions for this, mostly Carey's, terminology) of 28 degrees was likely correct. It was Eardley who published duToit's ideas in his 1961 article on the Arctic Basin [9 ]. The gravity anomaly studies of Farrand and Gajda [10] for Northeastern Canada, and Heiskanen and Vening-Meinesz [11] for Fennoscandia demonstrated a sudden (and simultaneous) denudation of ice from the shield areas of Laurasia. Eardley's Presidential Address [12] in the 1964 meetings of the American Geological Society included studies of shoreline adjustments to be correlated with ...

115. Redshift Anomalies [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... I follow as closely as I'm able the work of neo-classical physicists, particularly Ralph Sansbury of New York. I first met Ralph in London in 1981, after reading some of his work in 1980 and considering it to be of great importance. I had visited Velikovsky at his home in Princeton in 1979 and discussed with him the problem of gravity, since it was a major stumbling block to an acceptable dynamics to explain the rapid stabilisation of the planetary system after a catastrophic interlude. He was of the opinion that it was essentially a weak electric polarization of matter. Prescient as usual! Ralph's work seems to provide the link between electrostatics and gravity which makes the whole problem so ...

... a large disturbance in the lower atmosphere via such electric fields. Around Saturn, hydrogen extending outside the ring system glows faintly as excited by electromagnetic radiation from the Sun. - The rings themselves lie in an area of low density plasma and are now thought to be influenced by electromagnetic forces, after ideas of their complexities being controlled by the gravity of shepherding moons failed to produce such moons in evidence. Voyager results show that lightning discharges across the rings are of an order of millions of volts, 100,000 times the power of terrestrial lightning. - Earth, within such a sphere of influence, would have been highly charged electrically and, due to the polarisation induced between ...

... stars with planets where the primary is immensely more massive and more greatly charged than its satellites. From these rules it should not be construed that it is possible for a massively small body with a very large electromagnetic field to cause a very large massive body with a small electromagnetic field to revolve around it. This could not possibly occur because gravity is the more powerful of the two forces and dissipates more slowly over distance than does electromagnetism. Figure 2. The Sun and Earth or Mars seen from Above. Further, the orbital precessions of the planetary ellipse is explained in that the two forces as they dissipate at differing rates will be slightly different in force in either attracting or ...

... the solar atmosphere, we find more surprises. On theory, the solar atmosphere would be expected to be only two to three km thick.(22) However, we find appreciable atmosphere extending at least two solar radii (1 .4 Gigameters*) upward. This is observed despite the high value calculated for the Sun's "surface gravity" at the visible limb.(23) The photospheric temperature is of the order of 6000 K, about twenty times Earth's surface temperature. The mass of the solar atmosphere is 10^16 tonnes,** 1.9 times Earth's atmospheric mass.(24) [Footnote: * 1 Gigameter = 1 million kilometers. ...

... /cm). The characteristics of this field are such that it affects the speed of light which may vary as the field varies; hence the speed of light is not constant. Second, this field is also believed to be responsible for the phenomenon of gravitational acceleration. Newton acknowledged that the capability for a body to be accelerated by gravity was not a property of the body itself. Hans Nieper postulated, at his 1980 Hannover symposium, that "The shielding effect of a mass {from the Tachyon-Field} causes a second mass to be accelerated towards it. The gravity acceleration (Earth Attraction) is a thrust phenomenon and not an attraction phenomenon." (2 ) ...

... and launching massive satellites. Since Mars does not have a large, natural satellite such as our moon, the construction of large artificial satellites would be of relatively greater importance to an advanced Martian civilization in its expansion into space. The launching of massive satellites from Mars would be a somewhat easier task than from Earth, because of lower Martian gravity." In our discussion of "Sagan's Fifth Problem" above, Sagan ridiculed Velikovsky's concept of the possibility of life in space. Yet Sagan had created an entire civilization on Mars complete with the capacity of orbiting satellites! Patrick Moore in The Planets, (NY 1962), p. 96 states, "Not so long ago ...
