Dark Decrepitude

  Dec 9, 2016 If the Universe is expanding at an accelerating rate, then the future is dark. In 1998, two research groups discovered what is now called in consensus circles, “dark energy”. Saul Perlmutter of the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and Brian Schmidt from the Australian National University projects …

Wanted: Cosmo-centric Ideas

  Nov 30, 2016 Currently accepted theories have evolved a long way toward catastrophics from their ancestry in uniformism. Assumptions of actualism and gradualism-that present-day processes acting over long times could explain the changing morphology of rocks and species-have been displaced. Impacts from space have broken the continuously gradual action …

Double Layer Flare-up

  Nov 7, 2016 Electricity in space explains anomalous energy curves. Cosmologists often find it difficult to reconcile theory with observation. So-called “gamma-ray bursts” (GRB) are a case in point. GRBs were discovered first in galaxies with high redshift—some seeming to be 12 billion light-years away. If they are that …

Ripples in Clear Space

  Nov 3, 2016 Where do galactic clumps and filaments come from? One proposal suggests that galaxies are drawn toward the center of galactic clusters through gravitational attraction. What is termed, “blow-back force” by astronomers supposedly pushes galaxies out and away from the direction of travel like a vast comet tail. …

Old and Far Away

  Oct 27, 2016 The Big Bang theory states that for some reason (not explained) an irruption of energy from some other realm replaced “nothingness” with what was to become the present Universe. The theory was proposed because Edwin Hubble, using the recently completed 100-inch telescope at Mt. Wilson observatory, …
