APS physics - The American Physical Society
"The American Physical Society was founded on May 20, 1899, when 36 physicists gathered at Columbia University for that purpose. They proclaimed the mission of the new Society to be "to advance and diffuse the knowledge of physics", and in one way or another the APS has been at that task ever since. In the early years, virtually the sole activity of the APS was to hold scientific meetings, initially four per year. In 1913, the APS took over the operation of the Physical Review, which had been founded in 1893 at Cornell, and journal publication became its second major activity. The Physical Review was followed by Reviews of Modern Physics in 1929, and by Physical Review Letters in 1958. Over the years, Phys Rev has subdivided into five separate sections as the fields of physics proliferated and the number of submissions grew."

The Harvard Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics
"The Center for Astrophysics combines the resources and research facilities of the Harvard College Observatory and the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory under a single director to pursue studies of those basic physical processes that determine the nature and evolution of the universe. The Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory (SAO) is a bureau of the Smithsonian Institution, founded in 1890. The Harvard College Observatory (HCO), founded in 1839, is a research institution of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, Harvard University, and provides facilities and substantial other support for teaching activities of the Department of Astronomy. The long relationship between the two organizations, which began when the SAO moved its headquarters to Cambridge in 1955, was formalized by the establishment of a joint center in 1973.

Today, some 300 Smithsonian and Harvard scientists cooperate in broad programs of astrophysical research supported by Federal appropriations and University funds as well as contracts and grants from government agencies. These scientific investigations, touching on almost all major topics in astronomy, are organized into six divisions."

NASA Swift Catching Gamma-Ray Bursts on the Fly
"Gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) are the most powerful explosions the Universe has seen since the Big Bang. They occur approximately once per day and are brief, but intense, flashes of gamma radiation. They come from all different directions of the sky and last from a few milliseconds to a few hundred seconds. So far scientists do not know what causes them. Do they signal the birth of a black hole in a massive stellar explosion? Are they the product of the collision of two neutron stars? Or is it some other exotic phenomenon that causes these bursts?

With Swift, a NASA mission with international participation, scientists will now have a tool dedicated to answering these questions and solving the gamma-ray burst mystery. Its three instruments will give scientists the ability to scrutinize gamma-ray bursts like never before. Within seconds of detecting a burst, Swift will relay a burst's location to ground stations, allowing both ground-based and space-based telescopes around the world the opportunity to observe the burst's afterglow. Swift is part of NASA's medium explorer (MIDEX) program and was launched into a low-Earth orbit on a Delta 7320 rocket on November 20, 2004."

" 1. The electron equation and electromagnetism -- A new unifying electromagnetic theory. Published in Integração:III(11)286-304, 1997 (nov).
Abstract: The special article in this month's Integração contains the main topics — properly revised — of a theory published in 1993 in Portuguese. It is a classic theory referring to electromagnetism, and intending to rescue most of the wise knowledge of physicists who lived in the 19th century and before; it only excludes the concept of electric fluid, something modern Physics subtly insists on accepting.
2. Electrons emitting electromagnetic information (e.m.i.) -- New ideas are presented concerning the electromagnetic radiation, all of them denying both undulant nature and a corpuscular one. The author explains some aspects concerning the reaction of radiation and the orbits allowed by Bohr; these are themes which modern physics still has to explain in a proper way. He also suggests the existence of fields permeated by real particles which are in contrast with the double nature of the "electromagnetic wave".

3. Hidden variables and thermodynamics -- A representational approach to entropy is presented, relating the increase in the entropy of the universe to the production of entropins (= neutrins?), and the stability of systems in thermodynamics equilibrium to the elastic character of molecular collisions.

4. The Euclidian curved space and the Galilean relativity -- Euclidean geometry admits of a curving in space if it has a physical meaning, and not merely mathematical one.

5. Einstein Equivalence Principle is wrong? -- Question presented for discussion in the Newsgroup sci.physics.relativity (january/07/1998)

6. Einstein-Faraday's Elevator -- Question presented for discussion in the Newsgroup sci.physics.relativity (january/12/1998)

Society for Scientific Exploration
"The Society for Scientific Exploration (SSE) is a multi-disciplinary professional organization of scientists and other scholars committed to the rigorous study of unusual and unexplained phenomena that cross traditional scientific boundaries and may be ignored or inadequately studied within mainstream science.

The Society was founded in 1982 by fourteen scientists and scholars and now has approximately 800 members in 45 countries worldwide. The SSE publishes a peer reviewed journal, the Journal of Scientific Exploration (JSE) and holds annual scientific meetings in the USA and periodic meetings in Europe. Society members include scholars from a broad range of disciplines. Topics addressed in its journal and in its regular meetings cover a wide spectrum, ranging from real or apparent anomalies in well-established areas of science to paradoxical phenomena that belong to no established discipline.

This unique multidisciplinary perspective provides challenging opportunities for creative professional dialog and innovative research. In addition to the Journal and the Annual Meetings, the SSE supports a Young Investigators Program. This program is designed and implemented primarily by its participants, and its purpose is to provide information and resources pertaining to the scholarly study of anomalous phenomena and other frontier areas of science. An informal discussion in which many members participate can be found in the SSE Yahoo Group."

Phy6.org Astronomy, Physics, Spaceflight and the Earth's Magnetism

"These sites were written with several goals in mind.

First, they try to provide non-scientists with clear explanations and explicit answers about physics and astronomy, in particular in those areas that concern space, which has been my own field of work. Many web pages exist about such subjects, but they often leave the reader no wiser, and at times, more confused. Here you may find straight answers, and the material is self-contained, you need no prior knowledge.

Second, I have tried to include interesting stories and connections, many from the history of science and of technology. Science has always been closely linked to culture and society, and the historical thread provides both continuity and human interest. For non-scientists, especially ones interested in space and its exploration, this opens a window to a rich subculture of which society is barely aware.

And for students who might be getting their first look at science, as well as for their teachers, this may provide fresh material on physics, astronomy and earth sciences, with new content and added interest. Most of it is written at the high school level, though parts can be taught in middle school and others would fit undergraduate college. It is an open ended resource with extensions, links and references for the few who wish to explore at a higher level.

I am a physicist, at the end of a long career in space research, yet familiar with the history of science and with many of the links between science, technology, culture and society (personal details at Education/wstern.html). I am well aware that most recent graduates from high school lack both the understanding of science and an interest in it. Reasons vary--e.g. rigid and formal curricula, lack of trained teachers, too much memorization, too little new material--but whatever they might be, it seems high time to seek a more fruitful approach."

The Sun is a Ball of Iron

Another site of Dr. Oliver K. Manuel.
"Dr. Manuel has published more than 100 papers, including several book chapters, presented over 100 papers at scientific meetings, including international conferences in Canada, Czechoslovakia, France, Germany, India, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Switzerland, the U.S.A., the U.S.S.R., and Wales, organized an ACS symposium with the late Professor Glenn T. Seaborg, and edited the proceedings, "Origin of Elements in the Solar System: Implications of Post-1957 Observations".

He uses isotope mass spectrometric to study:
  • the origin of meteorites, planets, and their elements
  • the origin and early history of the Earth
  • the Sunís origin, composition, and source of energy
  • double beta-decay and basic conservation laws.
He also studies other rare modes of nuclear decay, nuclear systematics, and the geochemistry of tellurium, iodine, and the long-lived fission product, iodine-129.

He was trained by Professors Paul Kazuo Kuroda of the Universities of Arkansas and Tokyo and John H. Reynolds of the University of California-Berkeley. He supervised research projects of more than 30 students, including over 20 graduate students.

NSF, AEC, ERDA and DOE supported his research. NASAís funds and a brief period of access to lunar samples made possible the two 1972 papers below."

The Surface Of The Sun
"This is a formal manuscript of the solid surface model that has been offered for web peer review. It includes a more formal presentation of this material. A larger file in Microsoft Word is also available.

The sun is the "Rosetta Stone" of astronomy. Observing, understanding and explaining the inner workings of our own sun is the key to unraveling the mysteries of the physical and quantum universe that surrounds us. The only way to know if we have properly deciphered the stone and confirm that we have discovered the correct model is to use this model to explain the observed behaviors of the sun. For four centuries Galileo's antiquated gas model of the sun has utterly failed to unlock the inner workings of our own sun and provide the answers to solving these mysteries. On the other hand, the model that Dr. Kristian Birkeland experimented with in the early 1900's may indeed unlock the secrets of the universe."

Quantum Aether Dynamics Institute - The Aether Physics Model

"The Quantum AetherDynamics Institute was established in 2003 as a non-profit research organization to promote a testable, common-sense Theory of Everything. Already, from first principles, the Aether Physics Model provides a new foundation for physics, accurately predicts the relative strengths of the forces, and the 1s ďorbitalĒ electron binding energy for all the elements. For more, see: AZoM (advanced materials resource) coverage of electron binding energies discovery, United Press International, Inc., the American Association for the Advancement of Science, Forbes, the Gilberts Journal, and Guidestar.

We show that the fundamental constants in physics, such as the fine-structure, the masses of the electron and proton, and gravitation are not just random values, but have an exact value based upon a quantum-scale, dynamic Aether (the Aether unit has a precise value equal to Coulomb's constant times 16pi2). The Aether Physics Model is stunning in that it mathematically predicts and explains the measured values of physics with striking precision.

"Recapitulating: we may say that according to the general theory of relativity space is endowed with physical qualities; in this sense, therefore, there exists ether." Albert Einstein, Ether and the Theory of Relativity, 1920"

Sky-Fire.tv - Sprites, Blue Jets and Elves
"Sky Fire Productions, Inc. (a division of FMA, Inc) was created on the principle that working scientists should play an increasing role in local and national science education, both through the formal and especially informal education mechanisms. The principals are active researchers and science educators. Our plan is to develop both our own series of formal/informal science education products, primarily DVDs and web sites, as well as to facilitate those involved with bringing the excitement and findings of science to a broader audience. We hope to educate by producing engaging and entertaining fare for the public. You may know us from our planetarium production, "The Hundred Year Hunt for the Red Sprite." But we have also embarked on producing a series of weather-related "edutainment" DVDs. Our footage has also appeared on air at ABCís Nightline, the Discovery Channel, the National Geographic Channel, BBC4 and German Public Television, to drop a few names.

Sky Fire Productions is a small but specialized facility. We have been working with digital non-linear editing systems and time lapse photography for almost a decade. Several of our commercial web sites have been on line for 10 years (forever, in Internet years). We specialize in environmental and weather-related videography and program production. Our editing suite includes mutliple MAC Final Cut Pro HD-based digital non-linear editing suites. If your project involves scientific and technical topics, especially if itís weather-related, we speak your language. We can provide a good solid product at a reasonable cost. We donít do the fancy Hollywood and network stuff, but if technical or educational communication is what you need, we can help."

University of Alaska - Red Sprites and Blue Jets
"Red sprites and blue jets are upper atmospheric optical phenomena associated with thunderstorms that have only recently been documented using low light level television technology.

The first images of a sprite were accidently obtained in 1989 (Franz et al., 1990). Beginning in 1990, about twenty images have been obtained from the space shuttle (Vaughan et al., 1992; Boeck et al., 1994).

Since then, video sequences of well over a thousand sprites have been captured. These include measurements from the ground ( Lyons, 1994; Winckler, 1995) and from aircraft (Sentman and Wescott, 1993; Sentman et al., 1995).

Numerous images have also been obtained from aircraft of blue jets ( Wescott et al., 1995), also a previously unrecorded form of optical activity above thunderstorms. Blue jets appear to emerge directly from the tops of clouds and shoot upward in narrow cones through the stratosphere. Their upward speed has been measured to be about 100 km per second.

Anecdotal reports of "rocket-like" and other optical emissions above thunderstorms go back more than a century (Lyons, 1994), and there have been several pilot reports of similar phenomena (Vaughan and Vonnegut, 1989). Possibly associated gamma ray bursts and TIPPS have also recently reported. Together, these phenomena suggest that thunderstorms exert a much greater influence on the middle and upper atmospheres than was previously suspected."

AIAS - Alpha Institute for Advanced Study
"The Alpha Institute for Advanced Study (AIAS) is an international think tank comprising physicists, engineers and scientists of various disciplines from all over the world who communicate via the Internet. Most members have never met each other face to face. This would make the AIAS an invisible college. The current aim of the AIAS is the development of Einstein-Cartan-Evans field theory which is a generally covariant unified field theory (GCUFT). Such a theory describes all of physics in a purely geometrical fashion. In ECE, gravity is the curvature- and electromagnetism is the torsion of spacetime. The AIAS is led by Welsh chemist, Myron Evans. The staff members are all unpaid volunteers and the organisation itself is a non-profit entity (it is officially registered in Idaho, USA)."

It would hope to help in the dissemination of views of all kinds through the scientific community. It is not interested in simply supporting a view because it is popularly held to be true. As is often quoted on the Hunger Site: 'A child can ask a question a wise man cannot answer.'

We at Telesio - Galilei try to remember this and keep ourselves completely open minded when seeking solutions to the various problems facing science. "

SuppressedScience.net - Suppression, Censorship and Dogmatism in Science
"Historically, there were few scientific breakthroughs that were not violently opposed, condemned and strongly resisted. Every scientist knows this, Thomas Kuhn has written a book about it that is considered a classic, and yet the pattern keeps repeating itself. Many mainstream scientists these days believe that science has essentially reached 'the end of the road', that everything that can be understood has been understood, and that therefore claims to genuinely revolutionary discoveries must necessarily be erroneous or fraudulent.

Establishment science has thus gotten into the habit of ignoring, burying or suppressing what has now become astonishing amounts of anomalous evidence. Some of this evidence challenges the very foundations of the accepted scientific worldview, and none of it is taught in universities or covered by textbooks. Mention any of it to a mainstream scientist, and odds are you will be dismissed as a crank, or worse, a crackpot. The conclusion is sobering: some of what passes for "scientific fact" these days is little more than a social construct. What is true and what is not is determined by the scientific prestige of the claimant, the predilections of journal editors and referees, and by economic interests. A scientist who challenges the status quo becomes a persona non grata - banned from publication in journals and speaking on conferences, defunded, marginalized. The victims of this phenomenon include world-class scientists such as Jacques Benveniste, Peter Duesberg, Halton Arp, Stanley Pons and Martin Fleischman.

This site is intended to serve a threefold purpose- to educate the public on the widespread phenomenon of suppression, censorship and unscientific dogmatism in modern science, to expose the methods and tactics of those behind it, especially the organized "skeptics", and to promote a healthy skepticism towards the alleged certainties provided by modern science."

Natural Philosophy Alliance
"The Natural Philosophy Alliance, quite unlike establishment physics, does not impose any particular ideas on its members, whose ideas are so diverse that generalization about them is very difficult. Aside from virtually unanimous agreement that contemporary cosmology and physics--especially modern or 20th-century physics--are in dire need of a thorough overhaul, and that a much more tolerant spirit than has recently been shown in these fields must be practiced in order to achieve the needed changes, not very much comes close to achieving unanimous approval among NPA members.
