131. The Periodic Cyclicism Of Ancient Catastrophes [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... Cyclicism Patten 55 in a hazardous position in the heavens. With such a pattern, one might well ask whether these ancient cycles of catastrophes were periodic rather than non-periodic. A periodic event is one that always occurs at a predictable time. Tide tables are an extension of the periodical of tides, which are themselves a result of the Moon's gravity and the periodic rotation of the Earth. The orbits of all planets are periodic. The orbits of all planet satellites are periodic. The spin rates (rotation rates) of all planets also are periodic, and thus are predictable. Examples of events that are cyclic but are not periodic are winter blizzards in the Dakotas, summer monsoons ...
132. Instantaneous Shifts of the Poles [Journals] [Aeon]
... velocity the body would have would even out in space to a speed close to the velocity formula. Rather than 50,000 meters per second as a collision velocity, one might expect the bodies "in space" velocity to be approximately 2500 to 5000 meters per second faster relative to Earth, and before the appreciable acceleration due to Earth's gravity. Such a body could only achieve such a velocity through magic, and in my analyses, I try to steer clear of magic. At 2500 m/sec. faster than the Earth, the crash velocity at the surface of Earth would be approximately 8000 m/sec. At a 5000 m/sec. velocity faster than ...
133. Isaac Asimov in Absurdity [Books]
... primary in less time than it takes the primary to rotate. ' " 'The inner satellite of Mars revolves more rapidly than Mars rotates'(to quote Velikovsky again) only because it is close enough to Mars to do so. At the distance of that satellite to Mars, it can't revolve any more slowly if Newton's law of gravity is to be obeyed. Far from denying all existing theories' by revolving so quickly, the inner satellite would defy them if it did not revolve so quickly." (8 ) That statement is a pretty analysis but it is wrong (to quote Asimov) and all it shows is that as an astronomer, Asimov is an ...
134. Wild Motions, Angular Momentum and Other Problems [Journals] [SIS Review]
... of physical problems either discussed by Bass or related to his remarks. Dr Bass' presentation, "The Celestial Dynamics of Worlds in Collision", lives up to the standards for stimulating reading he set in his previous papers in Pensée and Kronos. His concern for calling attention to M. A. Cook's "obscure and little-known theory of gravity", with its implications for an electric cosmos, was necessary because Cook's exchange with Juergens in Pensée IVR III (1973), pp. 55-58, came to naught. Unfortunately, Bass' exposition at Glasgow in 1978, which was substantially repeated at Kronos' San José Seminar in 1980 (with an apology for having misstated Juergens ...
135. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Scientist 28.10.95, p. 18 Jets of matter streaming from radio galaxies may be capable of accelerating particles sufficiently to explain ultra high energy cosmic rays. Magnetic spirals New Scientist 28.10.95, p. 11 The Sun's magnetic field lines are dragged round as it rotates, producing a spiral effect. Greater than gravity New Scientist 27.1 .96, p. 52 A reader asks why all our theories assume that gravity alone is responsible for holding galaxies together. He notes that matter groups itself together on vastly different scales and different forces dominate at different scales and asked whether a completely different force might operate at the galactic level? This would ...
136. A DYNAMICAL OBJECTION TO GRUBAUGH'S POLAR CONFIGURATION [Journals] [Aeon]
... . Jupiter's average velocity in this lower orbit is higher then before, so Jupiter increases its distance ahead of Saturn. For a nearly circular orbit, the change of Jupiter's semi-major axis aJ with time t from Lagrange's perturbation equations is given by (1 ) where apert, T is the tangential component of the perturbing acceleration, due to Saturn gravity, of Jupiter relative to the sun (positive in the direction of motion), (2 ) Kepler's Third Law gives (3 ) for Jupiter's (unperturbed) orbital mean motion (2prad/orbit period). G is the universal constant of gravitation, mH, mJ, and msare the masses of sun, Jupiter, and ...
137. Sagan's first problem: The ejection of Venus by Jupiter (Carl Sagan & Immanuel Velikovsky) [Books]
... in trying to find a theory with any degree of probability at all." Thus, the theories of Sagan and his colleagues generally accept for the formation of the planets, especially the terrestrial ones are based on a process that has never been observed by astronomers and that is inconsistent with much that we know about planetary and stellar physics and gravity. In short, it is a myth. Velikovsky in an article "Venus A Youthful Planet", published in Yale Scienti tc Magazine, for April 1967 answered Sagan's assertion in part saying that, "The origin of Venus from Jupiter is by itself no absurdity and actually is claimed by Lyttleton. Analyzing the quantitative elements of the ...
138. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Jan. 02, p. 37, Science Frontiers No. 133, Jan-Feb. 2001, p. 1, Final Frontier BBC2 TV, 1.6 .01. Cosmologists' equations for the mass of the universe still don't add up so in addition to dark matter' they have now invented dark energy' but, unlike normal gravity, its gravity repels. A redshift survey of galaxies reveals vast clumps and voids, all elongated along our line of sight, which is a problem for cosmologists but could be solved by jettisoning redshift as a distance indicator. Yet another puzzle for astronomers is that the space probes Pioneer 10 and 1, which are leaving the Solar System ...
139. Lagrangian Points [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... Lagrangian Points http://www-spof.gsfc.nasa.gov/Education/wlagran.html [Readers are referred to Dave Talbott's post Visualizing Collinear Systems in Thoth II:19, Nov 30, 1998, on page 13]. Station-keeping in orbits around the Sun With enough velocity, a spacecraft can break loose from the Earth's gravity and enter an orbit around the Sun, like that of a planet. If it then orbits the Sun with the same period as the Earth (one year) it may keep a fixed position relative to Earth. However, orbital laws require planets closer to the Sun to move faster, by a formula found in 1619 by Johannes ...
140. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... their gaseous envelope, leaving a hard rocky core, and the unusual theory of A. G. W. Cameron of Harvard College Observatory who believes that the planets formed successively, but from the inner regions of the Solar System. Notable mention is given to Swedish astronomer Hannes Alfven. "He believes that magnetic fields were as important as gravity in forming the planets." One big advantage of the Alfven theory over conventional nebula theories is that it actually manages to explain the unequal distribution of angular momentum within the Solar System. "It is fair to say that only a few astronomers subscribe to the electricians' point of view. But it is not easy to prove them ...
