Susan Parker Note about soft xrays and the gravitational potential

Hello, Susan, There was no indication of a new message, I just happened to look. LIGO shares some data, but there is a big difference between putting files online and actually sharing. The amount of fiddling they put into their strain data makes is nearly impossible to use without substantial insider information. They did put

Mars and moon and space need atomic power – shipping to Mars example

SpaceX Starship can return from Mars without surface refilling at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u55zpE4r-_Y The engineering design and manufacturing costs for atomic power are a lot less than the cost of hauling chemical or solar panels to Mars. Do the numbers and see what it is worth to spend on lightweight atomic power units and technologies. A few ten

Comment on Earthquake Seismograph Using Bismuth Magnetic Levitator – about state of the art in low cost gravitational detector arrays

Earthquake seismograph using bismuth magnetic levitator as sensor at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aIANNzpec7Y Tomislav Stimac, The “standard” still for accelerometers is the small but global network of super conducting gravimeters (SGs). They use liquid helium cooled niobium magnetically levitated spheres as the test mass. The sensitivity is about 0.1 nanometers per second squared (nm/s2) at 1 sample per second.

Generating synthetic gravitational fields

Teri, I was doing a quick study on “color from structure” and related concepts.  The colors of butterfly wings are often not pigments in the traditional sense, but emergent colors because of the shapes of the molecules. What clicked in my mind is that the sub wavelength structures (the structures that produce the rather large

Comment on Jordan Sullivan, Neutrinos and Antimatter Video

Neutrinos and antimatter at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YcpNhPBxwfo Jordan, You can combine a particle and its anti-particle into a stable form, if you provide angular momentum. The external charge and magnetic dipole moments are effectively zero, and the particle is effectively all binding energy which has no mass. The pair can store most any amount of energy, but

Comment on Cat and Plasma Ball, Rotating Plasma Ball, Plasma Ball and Fluorscent tubes and bulbs, iPhone

Cat and Plasma Balls at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XkJYY4dDdr0 The cat investigated all parts of the globe, power (it can smell the hands of the person on the plug most likely), and behavior (optical, response to touch and nearness, acoustic because its ears and nose can pick up more than our fat fingers) methodically. Its nose is rather

Contact Imaging Sensors, Linear CCD arrays for gravitational and magnetic imaging

Jean, I was trying at least two pathways: 1. Build circuits to read the analog signals from these linear sensors, and put the fastest and best ADCs to read and store the data. The focus on high precision measurement of the signals as a function of reference voltage. 2. Somehow learn to talk to these

Comment on plasma cutting video by Jason Michael Saunders, referring to 3D printed rockets

Comment on YouTube Jason, I watched this Genius of 3D Printed Rockets video the other day. They are using plasma discharge heating, but it is not very well controlled at all. They say “it works really precisely”, but it throws off heat and light and bits of wire, and fluctuates a lot. It only needs

Create arbitrary fields through simulation, measurement, and calibration.

A wave traveling between two parabolic antennas https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v0cZjOIfwos You might try receiver-transmitter pairs, where each inverts the signal to build a standing wave. Use the final state inside the volume (arbitrary and time dependent if you want) as the constraint, then solve for the signal modifications needed at each site. I first saw this more

Thermodynamic Clocks – Time reversible systems, quality, gravitational detectors, solar system coordination

Shawn, Thank you for thinking of me, and sharing. The gravitational energy density (and the usually much smaller magnetic, electric and thermodynamic energy densities) control the rate of chemical, atomic and nuclear events at any location.  The most often used phenomena are “gravitational time dilation”, “relativistic or general relativistic corrections (from velocity and gravity)”.  An
