Maximum Credible Accident By John Howlett
Paperback: $19.76
Ships in 3-5 business days.
When this book was first published in the 1980’s, it was dramatised by BBC Radio. After only one episode, the Thatcher government tried to have it taken off air. The then heads of the BBC... More > decided Maximum Credible Accident was ‘factually correct and an essential element in the public debate’ – and refused to censor it in any way. 'Imagine concentrating everything that scares you most about a conventional nuclear reactor, speeding it all up and immersing it in liquid that burns in air and explodes on contact with water. Then persuade yourself that nothing will ever go wrong with it: no terrorists, no Chernobyl, no Fukushima ... No Acts of God, no Murphy’s Laws can be permitted.' In Maximum Credible Accident the decision about Britain's nuclear future is entrusted to a senior civil servant - Gordon Aylen, Whitehall and Washington determined to sway Aylen's decision –while unknown to him, a prototype Fast Breeder is running wild in Tuscany, beyond human control and beyond reach of any known fail-safe system.< Less

How Einstein got Relativity Wrong By John Keyes
Paperback: $21.30
Ships in 3-5 business days.
Einstein's Theory of Relativity states that c is the maximum speed at which all energy, matter, and information in the universe can travel. The theory holds that c is the speed regardless of the... More > motion of the source or the motion of the observer. It should have been obvious that the constancy of the speed of light was incorrect or misunderstood. Something was wrong with it. The original experiments that led to the belief in the constancy of the speed of light were flawed. None of this makes any logical sense – that light can always travel at exactly the same speed and somehow manage to reach all observers at exactly that same speed without taking into account the motion of the observers. This book will offer a more logical theory as an alternative – a new theory of reality which adds up both mathematically and logically. It will also shed some light on exactly where Einstein went wrong.< Less

Is the speed of light really the maximum? Quantum Entanglement occurs across the billions of miles of space at 10,000 times the speed of light. If this is true (it is) then how can the universal maximum speed of 1,8282 Miles Per Second be accurate? Then examine the concept from an astrological point of view and learn how the entire system can become unwieldy in a universe with trillions and trillions of stars. Find out how the numbers can change when you change the point of reference.< Less

More > subject to the same safety requirements as passenger cars. This project investigated safety standards, operating regulations, and LSV materials to determine the likely impacts of LSVs for the Oregon Dept. of Transportation and Oregon communities, and whether current state regulations are adequate to ensure safe integration of LSVs. U.S. and Canadian federal agencies have harmonized regulations and set maximum LSV operating speeds, however state and local authorities regulate road speeds and intersections. This research recommends that: 1) Oregon amend regulations to limit LSVs to low-speed roads, and to cross higher speed roads at controlled intersections, 2) local authorities develop parallel or secondary low-speed networks that connect residential neighborhoods with major activity centers.< Less
