New Posts Gravitational Lensing
Discussions of real Einstein rings and ring arcs caused by strong foreground gravitating masses, and pseudo-gravitational lenses that are probably foreground quasars producing multiple images by refraction when their jets are pointed our way.

New Posts Gravity & Relativity
Observational evidence suggests that gravity propagates faster than the speed of light. How can such evidence be reconciled with Special Relativity? What is the physical nature of gravity?

New Posts Big Bang and Alternatives
The big bang (BB) theory is widely accepted because redshift in distant objects is seen as evidence for an expanding universe. But how strong are the cases for and against the BB? Are we even sure that redshift corresponds to expansion velocity?

New Posts Galaxies
Galaxies are the laboratory of cosmology. How is our growing knowledge of galactic structures shaping modern cosmological theory? How is the perception of galactic organization affected by different interpretations of red shift?

New Posts Big Science and Big Government
Scientific exploration has always depended on the generosity of patrons. For most of mankind's history such patronage came from governments and religions. Briefly (beginning in the 1800s) patronage came mostly from private citizens, especially in the USA. By the mid 1900s we were back to primarily government funding.

This does have an impact on the nature and quality and quantity of science that gets done. Do your out-loud-thinking about such issues here.

New Posts Exploded Planet Hypothesis
A place to explore the idea that the asteroids and comets are left over fragments from planetary explosions rather than left over fragments from the creation of the solar system that never gathered together into a larger body.

New Posts Terrestrial Science
How does our own planet act and react to the forces of nature? Where does Earth's excess heat originate? What are the effects of other planets on our own?
