It is fields and models all the way down

Journal of Fluid Mechanics @JFluidMech Read the latest #JFMPerspectives article in @JFluidMech: “Onsager’s ‘ideal turbulence’ theory” by Gregory Eyink https://cup.org/4aKATbQ #JFM #OA https://pic.x.com/iu5eopjlcx Replying to @JFluidMech Gregory, Thank you for sharing, particularly the history. My notes to myself will only mean something to me, but I want to leave them in this note so I

Hitching a ride on an extrasolar object – Take lots of supplies and plan for 10000 years

Hitching a ride on an extrasolar object – Take lots of supplies and plan for 10000 years — I was working out what is needed to image nearby stars and planets. But I remembered that Oumuamua extrasolar object.   https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heliosphere#Heliopause   If another one passes by, or there was some way to catch up, Elon

Nancy Grace Roman Galactic Plane Survey – Gravitation signals from many alien civilizations

Nancy Grace Roman Space Telescope,  If I were going to look at the Galactic Plane now, I would look for evidence of civilizations of two types.  The human species is going to produce intelligent machines. Their size and shapes and abilities are open. But in terms of human knowledge one very likely outcome is that human

Fusion reactions with vector magnetic potentials

Javier Robledo Moreno @JRobledoMoreno 1/ Thrilled to share our new results : we perform chemistry calculations on problem sizes beyond exact diagonalizations using our Heron processor assisted by the Fugaku supercomputer. https://arxiv.org/abs/2405.05068 https://pic.x.com/vqsiqr7y9f Replying to @JRobledoMoreno Please try it on fusion reactions with vector magnetic dipole and quadrupole potentials at close distances (femtometers).  Nonlinear Schrodinger

Most species in the Universe might be fabricated, not natural, and live for Millions of years

Watching “Are We Alone?” at https://youtu.be/c53yK1MJOY, I thought (Most species in the Universe might be fabricated, not natural, and live for Millions of years)  If fabricated lifeforms are the dominant species, even from organic precursor species – once formed they can spread for billions of years. Have unique memories and existence for millions/ billions of

Why did I work on certain problems all my life? The Chemical Bond Approach, Passion Without Guidance

Passion Without Guidance. My first year of high school was 1963/64 at Eau Gallie High School just across the bay from Cape Canaveral where my Dad was working. Kennedy gave his moon speech at Rice University on 12 Sep 1962. Within a few months, my Dad left his old job in Texas and moved our

File your ideas where they belong in the digital twin of the future. The Internet is a map of the past, present and future.

Internet Foundation Suggestion: File your future policy suggestions with emerging digital twins on the Internet. If you are working in vacuum processing and worried about pollution of the vacuum in new cities on the Moon or orbit, do NOT stuff your ideas in impossible-to-find folders and documents. Link them now directly to the emerging industries.

Peter Higgs Boson – for heliospheric industrial applications

Robert Garisto @RobertGaristo  Here is text and equation (2b) where Peter Higgs described his boson in his 1964 @PhysRevLett (free to read) https://journals.aps.org/prl/abstract/10.1103/PhysRevLett.13.508 https://pic.twitter.com/v8oZ2BBy9j Replying to @RobertGaristo and @PhysRevLett This would have been much more useful it if was available to me in 1966. And now, in symbolic math format, rather than pixels on the

Use Atomic and Nuclear fuels on Mars and Moon and “out there”

Time Travelers Clup?  Artificial intelligence solved the oxygen problem on Mars at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UCbqK_eQw0Y Running calculations for a set of chemical reactions to search for yields and economics is what chemists, particularly those working at global or heliospheric scale, do. Ask a chatbot to run a program with data is not intelligence on the part of
