The Universal Newton

This gallery contains 2 photos.

The pure mathematics underlying Newton’s Law of Universal Gravitation is straightforward. Newton’s law of universal gravitation states that any two bodies in the universe attract each other with a force that is directly proportional to the product of their masses … Continue reading

Lost Lunar Librations

This gallery contains 5 photos.

The casual observer could anticipate that the Moon would display some irregular movements as its buffeted by the variable Solar Wind [and the associated Interplanetary Magnetic Field]. This should be especially true when its moving against the flow of the … Continue reading

The Clockwork Moon

This gallery contains 13 photos.

The orbital velocity of the Moon is a curious beast. From a Heliocentric perspective the Moon and the Earth are orbiting the Sun with exactly the same average velocity. However, the orbital speed of the Moon varies as it weaves … Continue reading

The Syncopated Sidereal Shake

This gallery contains 6 photos.

The mainstream scientific establishment has a nasty habit of moving on whenever it discovers something really interesting or [in this case] something that’s Earth Shaking. The story starts in 1916 when Einstein envisaged gravitational waves rippling through spacetime. In physics, … Continue reading

Kepler’s 160 Minute Solar Cycle

This gallery contains 9 photos.

Observational scientists first noticed a 160-minute [2.67 hour] solar oscillation in the 1970s. The 160-minute solar cycle was an apparent periodic oscillation in the solar surface which was observed in a number of early sets of data collected for helioseismology. … Continue reading

Celestial Crystal Balls and the Temple of Amen-Ra

This gallery contains 19 photos.

Newtonian Celestial Mechanics has been plagued by problems from the very beginning. Firstly, Isaac Newton [1642-1727] provided “no hypotheses” about how his hypothetical “invisible force” was mediated “instantaneously” over “vast distances”. Newton’s theory of gravity offered no prospect of identifying … Continue reading

Axial Tilt – Game Over

This gallery contains 20 photos.

IF Jupiter has released a series of planets into the inner Solar System THEN the data suggests the Axial Tilt and Heliocentric Inclination of these planets approaches zero as their orbital distance from the Sun approaches zero. Mercury, for example, … Continue reading

The Clockwork Universe

This gallery contains 11 photos.

The philosophical and practical problems associated with Newtonian Gravity are simply stunning: 1) Newtonian Gravity has no mechanism and relies upon a magical action at a distance. 2) Newtonian Gravity somehow travels “instantaneously” throughout the universe. 3) Newtonian Gravity travelling … Continue reading
