New Galaxy Redshift Distance Record (z=11) Seriously Threatens Big Bang models

A new record distance to a huge galaxy named GN-z11 has been observed and measured. It is dramatically farther than the previous distance holder. The constantly amazing Hubble Space telescope measured its distance spectroscopically at a Spectral line Redshift of … Continue reading

Gigantic Voids are Expanding and Shrinking

Very few researchers are studying our Universe’s largest structures, but here’s a nice analysis of Voids,  some of the largest structures “we’ve” found so far. Voids are nearly spherical regions of our universe with few galaxies. They can be described … Continue reading

Is the search for “Dark Matter” over ? Gigantic amounts of missing matter found hiding as faint Red Dwarf stars.

Yes. The search for “Dark Matter” is over. Its been found thanks to the Dokkum and Conroy team. We can all go celebrate, and then get back to work. And it was staring us right in the face all along; … Continue reading

Accelerating Universe ? — Not so Fast*

Maybe the rush to embrace an Accelerating Universe and Dark Energy was a bit too hasty. New analysis shows that the rulers used to measure Supernova 1A brightness curves were unknowingly measuring two different types of Supernova 1As (1) with … Continue reading

Book Review: “The Higgs Fake: How Particle Physicists Fooled the Nobel Committee”

I’m painfully aware of abundant serious problems in physics of the largest phenomena, meaning “Standard” Cosmology-astrophysics (Big Bang/LCDM). Those include definitional and procedural problems, along with fundamental substantive errors and logical flaws likely created and nurtured by serious cognitive biases. … Continue reading

Complex Computer Programs Weaken COBE Cosmic Microwave “Background” Claim

Oxymoron: “Bug-Free Software” The $500 million dollar European satellite carrying Ariane-5 rocket blew up 37 seconds into its first launch – because of a one line software bug. The $1.4 billion US Air Force B-2 bomber wouldn’t fly on its … Continue reading

Why Don’t Three Quarks Add Up to One Proton? (and its not even close)

You’ve probably heard a thousand times that a Proton is made up of three Quarks: Two Up-Quarks and one Down-Quark. Right? So lets just take a quick look to see how they add up. OK – an Up Quark weighs … Continue reading

Did CERN Find a Higgs ? Well not quite. But they probably found a New Particle ! and extended their funding for years

You might have seen the New York Times Headline on July 4th “Physicists Find Elusive Particle Seen as Key to Universe” “I think we have it” said Rolf-Dieter Heuer, the director general of CERN. While CERN’s spokespeople were reasonably tentative … Continue reading

Will a Higgs Boson Discovery be Announced in July?

Today I ran across lots of excited rumors on Particle Physics websites that a Higgs boson might be announced at the upcoming International Conference on High Energy Physics in Australia. (The Higgs Boson is a never-observed particle that allegedly “give … Continue reading

Electron No Longer a Fundamental Particle ?

Amazing news: Researchers in Switzerland have separated an Electron into two smaller quasi-particles – a “Spinon” and an “Orbiton;” meaning they have physically separated the spin and the orbit properties of an Electron. Until now, standard physics generally accepted that … Continue reading

Astronomical Image Enhancements

It is not always made clear that astronomical images are altered or “cleaned-up” before we see them. You know the colors of gasses and dust are “adjusted” so we can more easily see different astrophysical phenomena. You might be surprised … Continue reading

“Perfect” Light Speed available with miniscule adjustment to the Second or the Meter Definition

Currently the speed of light in a vacuum is just a hair under 300,000 kilometers per second (more precisely 299,792,458 kps). “In 1983, the metre was redefined in the International System of Units (SI) as the distance travelled by light … Continue reading

Must Faster-than Light Neutrinos Cause Cerenkov Radiation?

A recent criticism of the apparently Faster-than-light (FTL) Neutrinos inspiring a lot of discussion is the claim that if Neutrinos are going FTL – they must cause Cherenkov radiation. Why? That doesn’t make sense. And its never been observed so … Continue reading
