Black holes vary in size. Some astrophysicists have theorized black holes may be as small as a mountain while others may be over twice the size of our own galactic core. It is theorized small, invisible' black holes are orbiting our own galactic core the...

A STRUCTURAL ANALYSIS OF GRAVITATIONAL PHENOMENA.For three hundred years the theory of gravity has been dominated by the names of Einstein, Newton and Le Sage. Whereas Einstein and Newton restricted themselves to developing mathematical descriptions of the movement of free bodies moving in a...

BariumUnder normal circumstances, the element barium sounds like another boring element. However, what about emerald fireworks glittering a Fourth of July sky? Or what about exquisite kaleidoscopic designs streaming through elegant glassware? What element can you credit for those wonders?Your element is Barium.Although...
Is the Standard Model the best Model of our Physical World
By: Keith Foote
The standard model is essentially a particle theory model, with severe reductionist limitations. (Consider that in over one hundred of use, we have no technologies based on the photon model.) It works well for mathematicians making limited predictions, but fails to provide a functional...

Time travel , in my estimation as an amateur scientist is a mathematical fact. I feel not only is it a fact, but if we think about it, it's very easy to understand. I have read much material on different theories of time travel.Many are...

Planck's Constant , which may be considered as either a unit of "action" or of angular momentum, may be far more significant than anyone has realized. Scientists have long ignored the fact that Planck's constant, "h," which relates energy to the frequency of electromagnetic radiation...

THE LURE OF THE ETERNAL WHY: A MATTER OF CURIOUSLY ADDICTIVE SCIENTIFIC HUNGER Attention, fellow space abductees! No, I can't prove the fact of my abduction conclusively to the satisfaction of the skeptics of the world. I can't even remember being abducted. But my husband...

Bode's Law, or more accurately the TitiusBode Law, describes a pattern roughly approximating the distance of planetary orbits. The TitiusBode Law was developed in 1766 by Johann D. Titius, and made popular by Johann E. Bode in 1772. It is an equation describing the pattern...
