Stellar flares seen from a nearby red dwarf star.

On April 23, NASA’s Swift satellite detected the strongest, hottest, and longest-lasting sequence of stellar flares ever seen from a nearby red dwarf star. The initial blast from this record-setting series of explosions was as much as 10,000 times more … Continue reading

Elementary Particles in the Decay Chain

 The general theory of relativity is as yet incomplete insofar as it has been able to apply the general principle of relativity satisfactorily only to gravitational fields, but not to the total field. We do not yet know with certainty … Continue reading

Fermilab experiment discovers a heavy relative of the neutron

Scientists of the CDF collaboration at the Department of Energy’s Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory announced the observation of a new particle, the neutral Xi-sub-b (Ξb0). This particle contains three quarks: a strange quark, an up quark and a bottom quark … Continue reading

The Sun’s Before Us

The Cosmic Ray of Creation We are “shadows” of the Sun’s creations. Sometimes it good to go back to “the beginning” so that one can see the context of what exists in reality, has a much “greater story to tell” … Continue reading

Cosmic ray spallation

As this NASA chart indicates, 70 percent or more of the universe consists of dark energy, about which we know next to nothing Other explanations of dark energy, called “quintessence,” originate from theoretical high-energy physics. In addition to baryons, photons, … Continue reading

Johannes Kepler: The Birth of the Universe

I measured the skies, now the shadows I measure,Sky-bound was the mind, earth-bound the body rests Kepler’s epitaph for his own tombstone I always like to go back as well and learn the historical, for it seems to pave the … Continue reading

Reaching for the Stars

Mars in 6 weeks? And back in a total of four months? That’s the prediction of a design team working on antimatter rocket concepts at Pennsylvania State University. But first, you have to get the stuff – and store it. … Continue reading

Ring World

Impact armor, a flexible form of clothing that hardens instantly into a rigid form stronger than steel when rapidly deformed (for example, by the impact of a projectile such as a bullet) – a technology which is quickly approaching reality; … Continue reading

Tunnelling in Faster then Light

Underneath this speculation of mine is the geometrical inclination of the universe in expression. If it’s “dynamical nature is revealed” what allows us to think of why this universe at this time and junction, should be flat(?) according to the … Continue reading
