Electric Universe: Spinning Up Gravity

This gallery contains 11 photos.

Last month Miles Mathis mauled [amongst others] the Electric Universe movement. They hook you by admitting what you already know: the upper levels of the mainstream are composed of a bunch of liars and frauds, and textbook physics is little … Continue reading

The Atomic Comet: On The Far Side

This gallery contains 21 photos.

Following the Terrestrial Thorium line of enquiry to the Far Side of the Moon very rapidly becomes a fascinating journey to the Far Side as the Settled Science turns to dust and this independent observer is led to conclude the … Continue reading

The Atomic Comet: The Feathered Serpent

This gallery contains 15 photos.

The concept of cometary Cyanogen entering the Earth’s atmosphere is doubly dangerous because it’s a highly toxic gas that produces the “second-hottest-known natural flame”. Cyanogen produces the second-hottest-known natural flame (after carbon subnitride) with a temperature of over 4,525 °C … Continue reading

Indian Impacts: Diamonds of the Gods

This gallery contains 11 photos.

Geology is a very ambivalent belief system. On the one hand: The discovery of stishovite at the Kachchh (Luna) site in India has helped convinced some geologists they’re dealing with an meteorite impact even though the dimple doesn’t display the … 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

String Theory

This gallery contains 2 photos.

Apparently mainstream “string theory is a theory of quantum gravity.” In physics, string theory is a theoretical framework in which the point-like particles of particle physics are replaced by one-dimensional objects called strings. String theory describes how these strings propagate … Continue reading

Solar Rotation – Formula Fantasies

This gallery contains 29 photos.

Many astronomers are afflicted with an irresistible urge to encapsulate their precious observational data into a mathematical approximation that is of “little scientific value”. The peculiarities affecting the motions of spots in different latitudes were reduced by Carrington into a … Continue reading

Taylor–Couette Circulation

This gallery contains 16 photos.

Earth’s atmospheric circulation is primarily driven by “solar heating” and the “Hadley system provides an example of a thermally direct circulation” according to Settled Science. The major driving force of atmospheric circulation is solar heating, which on average is largest … Continue reading

Couette Flow 4: Taylor Vortices

This gallery contains 8 photos.

Settled Science generally hides away inconvenient science in the dark corners of their academic edifices. Atmospheric Corotation is one of those “dark corners” of science where mainstream scientists “fear to tread”. Physics and the Earth sciences seem to [currently] avoid … Continue reading

Couette Flow 3: Turbulence

This gallery contains 24 photos.

Laminar Flow is characterised by adjacent layers sliding past one another like playing cards. In fluid dynamics, laminar flow (or streamline flow) occurs when a fluid flows in parallel layers, with no disruption between the layers. At low velocities, the … Continue reading

On Growth and Form – 1984 Edition

This gallery contains 7 photos.

During my research into the Liesegang Phenomena I stumbled across a reference to D’Arcy Wentworth Thompson’s “On Growth and Form”. This is not unusual because I frequently encounter references to D’Arcy Wentworth Thompson’s famous [“textbook staple”] tome when I’m researching … Continue reading
