Re: Elon Musk, SpaceX and PayPal

What we would like to see is Falcon 9 fuel mass at launch, and fuel mass and velocity at start of descent. All the fuel mass for the descent has to be lifted and accelerated, and then de-accelerate again before it burns. Or maybe they have a gas station up there. And while they are about it perhaps ...

Re: Testing the TYCHOS - stellar parallax and all

Dear Simon, The rotational speed of a man on the equator is 1662 km/hr. (Pi x12799/24). This would give a half diurnal (12hr) variation in the speed of light of plus / minus 1662 Km/hr (if Relativity doesn't hold). If you wanted to check the PVP orbital speed you would compare the variation obtained...

Re: Introducing the TYCHOS

Dear Simon, I think there may be two problems with this. 1) The sun travels with the Earth as it revolves around it. 2) In Sidereal terms the calculation is still wrong. In one half year (between the Equinoxes) the Earth travels 0.0071 degrees around the centre of the PVP orbit. The shift in the tan...

Re: First black hole image claimed

Massive Gravity gains traction, challenging Einstein. ‘Not deterred by slim odds of success – she previously trained as a pilot and made it through several stages of the European Space Agency’s astronaut selection process – De Rham entered the fray.’ https://www.theguardian.com/science/2020/jan/25/h...

Re: Latest attacks on free speech

His comedy is always based on one thing - exploiting the good nature and hospitality of the real people he chooses as victims, expecting us the audience to share his contempt for them, both for who they are and their stupidity in inviting him in and accepting his ridiculous persona. My reaction was ...

Re: V1 and V2 NAZI rockets (WW2): another old hoax?

The Red Army build up in 1941 was offensive and of a scale that it had to attack at some point in time. The logistics prohibited staying put. Perhaps there was little choice but to make a pre-emptive attack. History is written as if Hitler was an idiot and exercised complete arbitrary power, but it'...

Re: V1 and V2 NAZI rockets (WW2): another old hoax?

Perhaps more accurate to say that WW1 was a project engineered to prevent German industrial growth overtaking the British Empire. The old enemy, Imperial Russia was destroyed by mobilising and financing the Bolsheviks, using ethnic insurgency to wipe out and replace a whole culture and class. German...

Re: Advanced Building Technology in Remote Antiquity?

To advance the theory a little we could suppose that the whole wall was made on its back; cast in discrete blocks formed by dividers. It would be done sequentially so that hardened blocks would be the form for the next pour. The blocks could then be lifted and assembled in the vertical position with...

Re: Advanced Building Technology in Remote Antiquity?

It looks like a functional wall and the completion schedule was the priority. Is this igneous rock? Perhaps the knobs are the remains of a foundry process. They should have been fettled but there was no time and it didn’t matter that much. The blocks were cast with the face side up. The sides in con...

Re: THE "CHATBOX"

Dancing T-Handle Perhaps this is an inside joke—a reference to what actually happens to free objects in space, including satellites, rocket stages, or any supposed ‘space probe’, ‘capsule’ etc. Rigid bodies take on a cone shaped precession, and semi-rigid bodies (eg the ‘ISS’ with its shaky ‘solar p...

Re: Advanced Building Technology in Remote Antiquity?

The evidence of machine cuts is something new and astonishing to me, thank you for posting this. I was in Petra 30 years ago (it was almost completely deserted) and supposed it to be hand working of soft stone, preserved by the climate. The pre-Inca stone masonry seems to be a combination of linear ...

Re: Introducing the TYCHOS

The period correlation is awe inspiring, I think there may be a further explanation. My first thought was that if no stars are involved then the geo-helio system should not be showing anything within its own frame of reference. But it clearly is, so what is the PVP orbit doing to observed conjunctio...

Re: Introducing the TYCHOS

The Tychos does not need the concept of barycentre to stand up, it’s enough to stay within terms of primary observation and say: ‘The observations and cyclic periods indicate that relative to the stars our system rotates around a fixed axis at the centre of the PVP orbit.’ But it would be great if y...

Re: Introducing the TYCHOS

Let us consign 'The Wobble' to a black hole, I am sorry to have raised it, just my sense of humour. I think my only point is that when we say Barycentre we need to qualify it with 'barycentre of what?'. The barycentre of anything but the system as a whole will presumably move relative to the stars. ...
