Re: Advanced Building Technology in Remote Antiquity?

Sorry for 'derailing', but this has reminded me of the 'expanding Earth' hypothesis. According to it, the generally accepted plate tectonics theory is only partially true. Yes, it seems evident that Africa and Europe were once together (their shape makes it quite evident), but in fact the same happe...

Re: Advanced Building Technology in Remote Antiquity?

Also in Japan, you can find the Yonaguni monument. Harder to research as it is underwater, but it's quite similar to those constructions.

Re: Advanced Building Technology in Remote Antiquity?

I've recently talked with a civil engineer who said that there's no better building material than natural stone, except for the difficulty in handling. In fact, concrete has only been practically used since some 150 yrs, when the technique of reinforcing with steel beams was introduced. Still, there...

Re: Introducing the TYCHOS

I'm still intrigued by the Moon's orbital path and its anomalies, in particular the evection. In this post the position of solar system bodies are plotted according to JPL's data, which I think it can be assumed to be according to real observations. If we look at the Moon/Sun graph, we can see (mayb...

Re: Introducing the TYCHOS

I've made some research about the Moon's motion, in particular the evection anomaly, and it's quite fascinating that such a gross 'misalignment' can be accepted at all in science. First a disclaimer: I'm not an astronomer, just familiar with some basic notions. I've also found very clarifyiing this ...

Re: Introducing the TYCHOS

* Precisely. You may wish to check out this tutorial site for more insights as to how they "do it": "How to compute planetary positions" : https://stjarnhimlen.se/comp/ppcomp.html Really interesting... All in all, it all boils down to assuming elliptic orbits for all celestial bodies, and as they d...

Re: Introducing the TYCHOS

I must admit that at the beginning I was rather skeptic about Tychos, but after reading more about that it's becoming clear that what becomes unsustainable is the heliocentric copernican system. For me, the elephant in the room was simonshack's explanation about the sizes and distance from Earth of ...

Re: Satellites : general discussion and musings

Lies rarely go alone. While the ability for rockets to work in vacuum is the main issue, even if they worked we'd got also the technical unfeasibility of positioning a satellite exactly in the required orbit without a precise position & velocity feedback. Just imagine you're the "pilot" of a rocket ...

Re: Satellites : general discussion and musings

A satellite launcher would be no different than an ICBM or even a WWII V-2 rocket, just with some more muscle. They could be guided to the destination before the digital era by just a primitive analog computer that takes inputs from gyroscopes and maybe accelerometers, no more. Obviously, those inpu...

Re: Does Rocketry Work beyond Earth's atmosphere?

Very good explanation, nokidding . In fact it's quite puzzling that all pop physics explanations about how rocketry works are centered around Newton's 3rd law, blindly assuming that if you eject a given amount of matter at a given speed from a rocket, it will generate an equal and opposite force upo...

Re: The MOON HOAX

As much as most of what NASA does is fake, its budget is real for sure. Maybe its just a giant fund diversion scheme, and they must have something to show for the money, which goes to some other purposes, with the added bonus of the propaganda and voter uplift. Nobody is particularly excited about p...

Re: The PR of Secret Societies

I'm particularly interested in identifying "bad" businesses. I believe that the symbology is also noticeable in the company's PR, artwork, and top execs. Not less the internal and external lingo, and even the name. As an example, this is what was said about one big telco equipment manufacturer: http...

Peak oil / abiotic oil / diesel wars

I've recently stumbled upon an article in Spanish media which gives a new hypothesis that explains the recent push against diesel engines (and ICEs* in general) and other trends like EVs, restrictions to ICE vehicles (mainly, forbidding access to city centers), autonomous driving, shared transport a...

Re: Suggested Videos and Reading

I've recently read "Black Swan" and "Antifragile" by Nassim Nicholas Taleb. This statistic/mathematician/philosopher has a really good take particularly on economic issues and how the academy/Nobel/big-banking stablishment manipulates society and particularly economy and politics. Too much contents ...
