The Suppression of Inconvenient Facts in Physics

Or here.
"Textbooks present science as a noble search for truth, in which progress depends on questioning established ideas. But for many scientists, this is a cruel myth. They know from bitter experience that disagreeing with the dominant view is dangerous - especially when that view is backed by powerful interest groups. Call it suppression of intellectual dissent. The usual pattern is that someone does research or speaks out in a way that threatens a powerful interest group, typically a government, industry or professional body. As a result, representatives of that group attack the critic's ideas or the critic personally-by censoring writing, blocking publications, denying appointments or promotions, withdrawing research grants, taking legal actions, harassing, blacklisting, spreading rumors." 1. Martin, Brian. Stamping Out Dissent. April 26, 1993, pp. p.49-50.
A good well referenced overview ... Cold Fusion, Transmutation and "Alchemy", Special Relativity Theory: Beyond Criticism, The myth of the null result of the Michelson-Morley experiment, Is the Speed of Light in Interplanetary Space a Constant?, Big Bang Cosmology - Beyond Empirical Falsification, Anti-Gravity, The Second Law of Thermodynamics.
Exploration and discovery without honest investigation of "extraordinary" results leads to a Double Bind (Bateson, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Double_bind ) that creates loss of hope and depression. No more Double Binds !

And don't forget steorn.com with their magnetic engine...no official responses from any university...but strangely enough a solid amount of empirical observations...
Today's scientists have substituted mathematics for experiments, and they wander off through equation after equation, and eventually build a structure which has no relation to reality. -Nikola Tesla -1934
