Astronomers find planets in our cosmic backyard Comments

As Catholic Online reported last week, a new astronomical discovery has the scientific community abuzz. Five more planets have been discovered around a star that closely resembles our sun. And at least one of them is within the star's "Goldilocks zone." Continue Reading

    "Harmonics" would predict that "birds of a feather will stick together" ....... and that there is a likelihood that Mars would have a day very close to our 24 hours and that Venus would have a similar size to Earth ..... and that stars proximal to our Sun would have similar environs of planets. .... And that the spacing of planets would be similar.... as in Bode's law of Planetary distributions.........

    As if the media weren't already guilty of misinformation, this video "news" article is full of it. For starters, Tau Ceti is not the planet they have discovered but the star the planets are revolving around. Secondly, nowhere have Astronomers said this planet in the habitable zone is "like Earth." The only thing they have discovered is five planets, one of which inhabits the so-called goldy locks zone. They will not know much more about this planet until they have taken further measurements.

    Scientists agree that Pion antimatter powered spacecraft may approach the speed of light.

    The late Dr. Robert Carroll, a mathematical physicist who rejected relativity, claimed a Pion powered spacecraft might approach 20 million times the speed of light. See pages 34-37 at CHEAP GREEN on

    Muon - Pion fusion is under development in Australia and also by a Japanese - British Joint Venture.

    If successful, spacecraft will surely be powered by Pion drives.

    A test craft that might prove Dr. Carroll correct, and accelerate well beyond the speed of light, would open human exploration of Goldilocks planets.
