Comment on FIRST STUDY OF USING GRAVITATIONAL SIGNAL GENERATOR FOR THE MEASUREMENT OF THE GRAVITY SPEED

https://www.researchgate.net/publication/329838665_FIRST_STUDY_OF_USING_GRAVITATIONAL_SIGNAL_GENERATOR_FOR_THE_MEASUREMENT_OF_THE_GRAVITY_SPEED/comments The gravitational potential and the magnetic potential overlap. They are part of the same potential, but they have different spatial frequencies. In a simple picture they are made of particles of different sizes, mixed to make one potential field. The energy density of the gravitational fields is much larger than the corresponding magnetic field.

Note on all sky maps at radio frequencies – correlations, registration, collaboration

Richard, I was visiting http://sundog.stsci.edu/first/images.html looking for the current best radio map of the whole sky.  There are many groups making their own radio telescopes, and I thought it would be a good idea to register their intensities and coordinates against some reference.  Your page showed up “First”, but I don’t know enough about the

Note to a dark sky site about renting cameras with telescopes and all sky needs of the world

I picked this because your example was “start at $600 per year”. But I have no idea what this does. Throwing a bunch of jargon at me means nothing. That picture of the equipment looks like a jumble of wires and objects. Can you see all parts of the sky? Does it run continuously? How

Note in Houston Astronomical Society about Gravitational Engineering

https://www.facebook.com/groups/AstronomyHouston I have been looking at all the radio astronomy groups on the Internet. There are a lot of them, at all levels of age and experience and size. I am trying to see how many of the ground and orbiting networks are also picking up signals in the nanoHertz to GHz range. That includes

Comment on Pictor Open Source Radio Telescope – Recommendations

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=70plmWJDt2k Open Source: https://github.com/0xCoto/PICTOR Website: https://www.pictortelescope.com/ Please leave the settings and all form fields. Don’t clear them. Just leave them the same as the last observation.  I am having to re-enter them ever time I make a request.  I am making series of requests.  Many people might.  Tell them how many files they will receive, how many

All sky cameras online should use lossless format and share with cities and schools and groups

https://www.facebook.com/groups/172438633343696 I tracked down your allsky camera images. When will people realize that jpg is a lossy format and that the pixels are not true representations of the intensities and colors of small regions. I call it “eye candy”, only suitable for eyeballs, or the truly desperate who have nothing else. Please ask him to

Comment on Bessel Beams, Basis sets, Schrodinger equations, Particle-Antiparticle pairs as dark energy and matter

I was looking at Bessel beams and came across your work. You have some good methods and insights. I would like to read where you started. Three things I was thinking about. The Schrodinger equation is usually written in terms of spherical harmonics. But the Bessel functions could be used instead. Just as a basis.

Open Algorithms, Open Algorithm Groups, Open Algorithm Development

https://www.facebook.com/TheNRAO/ I sent a private message. Guess you guys don’t check that very often. I was asking about raw data from radio telescopes that can be used by “open algorithm” developers for training and experiments. Richard Collins, posted on Facebook on 30 Jun 2021.  My first public use of “open algorithm developers”. “open algorithm development”

NANOGrav raw observing data – merging all global sensor networks on the Internet

Hello, I was visiting https://data.nanograv.org/ to see what kind of data you are sharing online.  I am tracking most all the sensor networks on the Internet, especially the emerging ones. If I understand this talk by Steve Taylor at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_UptA7pkARo you are only observing at widely separated times for about 30 minutes? He talks about

Comment on photo of M 13

https://www.facebook.com/photo?fbid=10218423746097042&set=gm.3821644861298049 I am looking at Aladin for M 13 and cannot match those pictures to yours. Can you point to and name some of the nearby stars? Which way is “up” What is the field of view (right and left RA and Dec would help   http://aladin.u-strasbg.fr/AladinLite/?target=M%20%2013&fov=0.55&survey=P%2fDSS2%2fcolor   When I magnify your image, it has
