Icarus Star

ICARUS STAR Gravity makes a “magnifying glass” out of the space that it causes to bend — a cosmic telescope that can surpass those on or around the Earth, and extend our visual range by two thousand fold, with a billions of light years focal length, allowing us to see a star so old, nine […]

TIME’S ARCHERY

TIME’S ARCHERY   Time’s passage changes with velocity and near a strong gravitational field. Mass and speed show full reciprocity — their equivalence now clearly revealed. If we accept that the Big Bang occurred, and matter was once infinitely dense, this measure alone would prove it absurd for time to pass. It just would not […]

Thermodynamics on the […]

TOPPING THE STAR CHARTS

In 1977, a recording of “Liu Shui” (流水; Stream), as performed by Guan, was chosen to be included in the Voyager Golden Record, a gold-plated LP recording containing music from around the world, which was sent into outer space by NASA on the Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 spacecraft. It is the longest excerpt included on the disc (lasting seven minutes and […]
