Science and Time Travel
eBook (PDF), 57 Pages
How old is the universe? How far away are the stars? Did you know that we can see back in time? This book is meant as a companion and supplement to "Thou Shalt Not Ask" - the author's personal quest for answers to the hard questions posed by science and faith (Cut and paste this link to go to the book page: http://www.lulu.com/content/paperback-book/thou-shalt-not-ask/8735241), and is therefore offered as a FREE PDF EBOOK DOWNLOAD. "Science and Time Travel" primarily deals with astronomy and how that relates to the age of the universe. This is the first chapter of a work in progress to document plain scientific facts of the world around us in a quest to find answers. It is well researched and referenced to ensure the accuracy of every scientific claim. The author's email address is at the end of the book; feel free to contact him with any questions.

Sep 13, 2014Adventures Unlimited Press the publishers of David Percy and Mary Bennett’s book “Dark Moon: Apollo and the Whistle-blowers” have a singular interest in books with a vast multitude of photographs so it follows they would be in seventh heaven literally and figuratively upon seeing John Sawyer's “Science and Time Travel” despite the fact that he does not blow apart the accepted version of the Apollo moon missions (note in the photograph on page 5 there is no blast crater underneath the Lunar Lander). The author should take a page from “Dark Moon” and add some controversy to his narrative. For instance, when he points out that the mass of the sun is 2,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 tons, he should also point out that only way Arthur S. Eddington, one of Einstein’s foremost proponents, could make Einstein’s mathematical formalism work out was to take the mass of the sun as 1.47 kilometers. It’s completely unbelievable, but true, check out section 41 of Eddington’s “The Mathematical... More > Theory of Relativity.” The figure really is 1.47, and the units of measure used for the mass of the sun really are kilometers. In the same vein the author should write about stellar aberration that is a subject that has never received an in depth explanation that is accessible to a wide audience. It could act as a counterpoint to his lengthy explanation of stellar parallax. Are all the figures for stellar parallax, which the author has supreme confidence in, refined by taking into account stellar aberration? That is to say, is the raw data of stellar parallax changed by taking into account stellar aberration? The author does a superb job of explaining many astronomical principles, but I question his explanation of red shift on two points. First, the Sombrero galaxy is coming toward us at the fantastic rate of 1,000 km/sec. so its light should be shifted to the blue section of the spectrum, yet in the photograph the light is uniformly white. Second, the photograph of the sun’s coronal plasma from the SOHO satellite claims to show both red shift and blue shift. The coronal plasma coming toward the satellite undergoes blue shift while the coronal plasma moving away from the satellite undergoes red shift. This demands that the distance from the satellite to the sun must be measured in negative kilometers, which is not the accepted practice.
