121. The Absurdity of Neutron Stars [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... discharges between two or more orbiting, normally constituted, electrically charged bodies. It is a manifestation of a periodic arc instead of a spinning star. If beaming of the radiation is occurring then that should be verifiable here on Earth in the lab by studying the plasma focus device. The Electric Universe model lets go of the Newtonian dogma that gravity is the driving force in the cosmos. It allows for the possibility that the fundamental characteristic of normal matter - its electric charge - plays the most significant role. So if gravity wave telescopes detect anything at all, it won't be gravity waves from super-heavy objects. And particle physicists who are trying to work out how the universe was ...
122. A Proposed Model for the Polar Configuration [Journals] [Aeon]
... solved. Solution: Rs/Rj = 1.054 x/Rs = 0.0724 x/Rj = 0.0763 The value of x/Rj from this equation is about 30% less than would be obtained by calculating the orbits separately (i .e ., Saturn and Jupiter orbiting each other about a center of gravity, and the two orbiting the Sun at the same angular velocity). Appendix C: Saturn and Earth in Synchronous Orbits Around Jupiter at 45 degree trailing angle Figure 6 M = mass of Sun Mj, Ms, Me = respective masses of Jupiter, Saturn, and Earth Rj, Rs, Re = respective orbital radii of Jupiter ...
123. Response to Slabinski [Journals] [Aeon]
... , having worked with orbits professionally for some time, I am not unfamiliar with the paradox of the *accelerated* body taking more time to circle the Sun! The principle is inherent in *any* mathematical calculation of a binary system moving around the Sun.) This still leaves the question as to whether the gradient of the Sun's gravity, which would clearly distort the orbits of the Jovian planetary system, could destroy the equilibrium of the in-line condition. Though my thumbnail stability analysis had indicated there was little to fear in this respect, I decided to construct an independent computer simulation to examine the effect of the gravity gradient on the "stack" when the aligned planets ...

... Indeed, his "prediction" is clearly not linked in its essentials to the fundamental Velikovskian theses." 17 To discredit Velikovsky's prediction, Sagan claims that this is not essential to the fundamental Velikovskian theses. This is odd because it is essential and it is difficult to believe that Sagan does not understand this. Velikovsky maintains that not only gravity but also electromagnetism must play a major role in celestial motion. Velikovsky argued that the Sun and planets are not only gravitational bodies, but also electromagnetic bodies. In Worlds in Collision he wrote,"The accepted celestial mechanics, not withstanding the many calculations that have been carried out to many decimal places, or verified by celestial motions ...
126. On Celestial Mechanics [Journals] [Pensee]
... , but without good reason. The problem posed by a isothermal gas sphere, as he himself pointed out (5 ), is one of limiting its size- not supporting it against collapse. The German astrophysicist Emden made thorough analysis of gravitating gas spheres early in this century (6 ). He showed, on the assumption that nothing but gravity is available to contain it, the isothermal gas sphere can have no real boundary; it will thin continuously with distance from its center, but it will never quite thin to nothingness short of infinity. From this, Eddington concluded that such a body "has no direct application to actual stars" (7 ), a judgment in ...
127. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Review]
... .97, p. 18, 14.6 .97, p. 17 Astronomers are discovering more and more objects associated with the distant Kuiper Belt and, not surprisingly, they are full of surprises. One designated 1996TL66 is similar to Pluto and Charon in brightness but has an unusually eccentric orbit. It has been suggested that the gravity of the outer planets disturbs proto-comets from the even more distant Oort Cloud. Another, 1996RQ20, also has a very elliptical orbit and is slightly smaller. 1993SC appears to be related to Pluto and one of Neptune's moons, suggesting that they originated from this region. The connection, believe it or not, is the presence of methane ...
128. The Scars of Mars Part II [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... of the Bulge Region On Mars Figure 7 illustrates the Opposite Hemisphere of Mars. Three kinds of phenomena are brought to attention: Bulging Rifting Volcanism Most planets are not perfect spheres. Earth, for instance, is an oblate spheroid- fatter around the equator and flattened at the poles; this is due to a compromise between centrifugal force and gravity. The Moon has a lump or bulge on one side. Mars has both, for Mars also rotates like the Earth, and at a similar rate (one day of rotation is 24 hours 37 minutes). Mars is an oblate spheroid with a bulge region. The bulge region is known as the Tharsis Bulge (see Figure ...
129. Racial Memory and Instinct: The Case of the Honeyguide [Journals] [Aeon]
... difficulties when the evidence or logic bearing upon a particular matter warrants it; and (2 ) recent developments in genetics make the possibility of Lamarckian inheritance increasingly likely. With regards to the first point, there is the example provided by Newton's theory of gravitation, long considered the very ideal of scientific reasoning. We all take the reality of gravity for granted, but who can explain the physical mechanism behind its operation? Sir Isaac himself didn't pretend to know the answer: "It is inconceivable, that inanimate brute matter should, without the mediation of something else, which is not material, operate upon, and affect other matter without mutual contact...And this is ...
130. Letters [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... the seemingly impossible reports would be plausible if there had been a temporary reduction of gravitational pull on objects on Earth (INDUSTRIAL RESEARCH Jan 1974, p. 11). I would follow Jueneman and speculate that the "impossible" somersaults, lengthwise, over charging bulls by athletes in Minoan Crete might have been possible if there had been reduced gravity. I would further speculate on one aspect of the religious reason for the performance of the Olympic Games, the bull somersaults, and other religious activities of the ancients. Jueneman states that the 29th Olympiad in 664 BC recorded a broad jump of 52 feet. Today, that Olympic committee is accused of stretching the truth. Jueneman proposes ...
