comets as gravity experiments

RS2 Fora Comments - Tue, 04/01/2014 - 10:08

hi Bruce

 

 "I recall reading something of that effect, and as it turns out, this is being experienced by the Pioneer spacecraft and is known as "quantization of gravity."

The one factor that differs greatly in the macrocosm, is that space is not "empty" (as it is surrounding an atom). There are a large amount of atoms, dust and rock there, which could extend the 3D gravitational influences well past the gravitational limit of the sun. This may explain why a 3D coordinate system still exists in 2D space; I may try to do a computer simulation of the situation to test the viability of the concept. In essence, the unit boundary of an atom is very distinct, but at astronomical levels, the gravitational limit may be "fuzzy" with a lot of matter surrounding it."

might it be possible to "see" this quantization of gravity" on a comet coming in from the oort cloud?

A Giant Comet Headed Toward Mars Is Blasting Dust All Over Space

A comet poised to give Mars a close shave later this year is now blasting dust into space from at least two jets on its surface, photos from the Hubble Space Telescope reveal.


The latest Hubble photo of Comet Siding Spring, captured on March 11, shows what appear to be two jets of dust coming off the icy object's nucleus. The comet is making its way toward the inner solar system for an Oct. 19 rendezvous with Mars, during which it will miss the planet by just 84,000 miles (135,185 kilometers) — about one-third the distance between Earth and the moon.

The new Hubble observations, along with other recent images of Comet Siding Spring taken by the space telescope on Jan. 21 and Oct. 29, are helping scientists learn key details about the comet, such as the axis of rotation of its nucleus and the speed at which Siding Spring is ejecting dust. NASA released the new Hubble comet photos today (March 27). [See more Hubble photos of Comet Siding Spring]

Quantized gravitation

RS2 Fora Comments - Sun, 03/30/2014 - 14:14

Given the assumption that the asteroid belt IS at the gravitational limit, then all motion past it would technically be in the intermediate speed range of equivalent space. Larson, in Universe of Motion, points out that all motion in the intermediate speed range is quantized.

This is something that I noticed when I used POVray (computer ray tracing program) to plot out the locations of galaxies--and they were displayed in a series of concentric spheres (see This Reply). It also occurred to me that since speed is quantized, any spacecraft that went past the gravitational limit would also alter speed in discrete steps, not a "continuous motion" as would be the case moving through the inner solar system. I recall reading something of that effect, and as it turns out, this is being experienced by the Pioneer spacecraft and is known as "quantization of gravity."

The one factor that differs greatly in the macrocosm, is that space is not "empty" (as it is surrounding an atom). There are a large amount of atoms, dust and rock there, which could extend the 3D gravitational influences well past the gravitational limit of the sun. This may explain why a 3D coordinate system still exists in 2D space; I may try to do a computer simulation of the situation to test the viability of the concept.

Gravational limits and Asteroid Belts

RS2 Fora Comments - Sun, 03/30/2014 - 13:40

Big not as big and small not so small?

That is VERY interesting. If you treat your astronomical distance (8.41 x 1011 m) as the diameter of the sphere of the gravitational limit, it places it at the center of the asteroid belt--2.8 AU. The asteroid belt runs from 2.2-3.2 AU. I had not considered that before. I did recognized that the asteroid belt was the center of the dwarf star explosion that formed the planetary system, imploding inward to form the rocky, inner planets and outward to form the soft, gaseous planets.

This structure is worth considering, as it mimics the behavior of the RS atom--the inner planets being within the time region, the gravitational limit as the unit space boundary, and the outer planets being the spatial rotation (electrons). Larson states that space becomes "equivalent space" beyond the gravitational limit, which it also does in the case of the atom's unit boundary. Let me think more on this idea, as it does make sense.

Regarding the microcosm--excellent observation. I agree with your diagram--basically an "inner gravitational limit."

But if this is the case... then "galaxies" are even closer than I was calculating, as I was using a 200,000 AU gravitational limit.

Hi Russell,

Thanks very much for sharing your work, i've read through it and although i'm no mathmetician I followed everything and it's a very good way to visualize space/time and some of the other RS concepts, thoroughly enjoyable.

This actually makes two things stand out for me personally, one is my love of Spirograph when I was very young and the other was when I took Salvia Divinorum as one of the effects you get with that is a very pronounced "lines going off into infinity" visualisation just like when you extend the geometric analogy between the two gravitational fields to give you the two sets of angles, rays and the resulting set of vertices which create the bi-radial matrix.

A few other things which stood out are from your Visual Gallery, images 1 and 2 are pretty much a musical waveform and some of the others are almost like a grid that's been put "over space/time".  Image 3 also reminds me of the Flammarion image and how time/space is visualised in this picture:

This is also a pretty good clue as to what you are doing when you take the "Seer's sage", peeking through to the other side of the space/time coin.

Last of all you almost get a holographic effect from image 5 in your gallery.

Overall I have found this very usual to help me see how the structure of space/time can be built up from the fundamentals and how it relates to so many other things and it will help me to understand some of the other RS papers.

Cheers!

Rosetta sets sights on destination comet

The European Space Agency's (ESA) Rosetta spacecraft has caught its first glimpse of its destination comet after waking up from deep-space hibernation on January 20. Rosetta took the "first light" images March 20 and 21 using the Optical, Spectroscopic, and Infrared Remote Imaging System (OSIRIS). These pictures are part of six weeks of activities dedicated to preparing the spacecraft’s science instruments for close-up study of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. OSIRIS, developed under the l
