Not really.
As the abstract says, the military have an interest in getting the stuff to burn cleanly.
So it will nearly all burn to CO2 and water.

New Theories / Re: What time does the rocket arrive at point B?
« Last post by Colin2B on Today at 14:57:01 »
Basically if you were to look at the Sun the image you are seeing is an approx 8 minute old image and not the actual present image and you see the sun in its past
Yes, yes, yes!

however from a different look at the situation there is an apparent contradiction.
No, there is no contradiction

The evidence was once everyone admitted the simultaneous sight by using the relationship of speed, distance and time.
No-one has admitted simultaneous sight in the way you mean it

photon a to b = 1.s

photon b to a = 1.s

b travelling = 1.s

All 3 of these events happening simultaneously.
You are confusing events
In your scenario photons a to b and b to a travel simultaneously, starting their journey at 0900 however the photon b to a cannot show object b arriving at b, because the object is still travelling from a - it hasn't yet arrived and won't until 0900.01, it is a different event.
Only when it has arrived at b can a new photon start its journey to a, allowing observer at a to see the arrival at b. Total time 2s.

But to be fair to Thebox I have found him at times to be weirdly inspirational in his meanderings through physics, and also of some benefit as to humour.  I can forgive a lot of a person who makes me laugh.
I agree. It important in any subject to consider the not so obvious and explore possibilities. The ability to think through different scenarios is extremely valuable, however, it is also important to recognise when we have reached a dead end in a particular line of thinking.

This particular rabbit hole is a dead end and unless you intend sampling the bottle marked drink me it really isn't t worth spending more time in wonderland than necessary. I don't intend to.

because they are done without logical explanation  , that means the entity doing it is supernatural , and people like supernatural entities because they are perfect , if a scientist makes a miracle with a logical explanation ,  that won't make him supernatural or perfect , other scientists may be able to do it, miracles are done by a single person  and others can't do them , and other things like fear , disasters or death are solved by this single supernatural entity.

Why do you ask about zeolites and then highlight a passage that essentially says "We don't want the enemy to see thick black soot trails behind our aircraft"?

I certainly hope that the "enemy" is not humanity but rather a minority of corrupted sociopaths attempting to cover up their crimes as "geoengineering"..

Moreover, it is essential to characterize how theses advanced jet fuels produces "synthetic contrails" to provide evidences that clandestine geoengineering activity is based on advanced technology with potentially harmful effects on human health.

Timey you have the uncanny ability to deflect learning opportunities. Maybe that is inverted learning.

If you state that, in frame A, the rocket has speed x, then that's the speed in frame A. Time dilation applies when we speak of events in some other frame and then convert back to frame A. Note that in the frame that is co-moving with the rocket, the rocket is moving at speed 0.
So basically you are saying that the occupants of the rocket are not moving in slow motion, they just look as though they are from the observation reference frame...
No, again, you are simply not reading what I write and substituting your own imagination.

If a rocket ship is moving at extremely high speed, x units/units, in frame A, then:
1) it is moving through space at x units/units
2) the physical systems of the rocketship are time dilated relative to what they would be at rest

Quote
So how do you tell what speed the rocket is moving at?
In this case, the speed was given. In general, the speed is determined by what two clocks in a given frame would read when the ship passes by.

Quote
How do you know that its not moving in slow motion?
I don't know that. Rather, I know the reverse because of the principles of SR. Again, we can look at what clocks read at given events.

Quote
If the occupants are not really moving in slow motion, how can one say the length of the rocket is really contracted?
By looking at the distance between events when the ship passes by at certain times as given by clocks.

Why not just search for what zeolite catalysts are?

Chemistry / Re: how does an electron return to its orbit?
« Last post by Yahya A. Sharif on Today at 13:13:08 »
why an electron stuck on an orbit instead of falling on the nucleus ? satellites are put on orbits by a complicated process  ,the intuitive thing is that they should just be attracted and fall onto the nucleus ,  is there any special process to put electrons back again in orbits? can this be a random process or intelligent directed one? and how a random process will manage to make something like this?

Chemistry / What is a zeolite catalyst ?
« Last post by tkadm30 on Today at 13:10:35 »
The synthesis of zeolites from coal fly ash could be used to develop high density jet fuels with low aromatics
concentration:

Quote
PRODUCTION OF HIGH DENSITY AVIATION FUELS
VIA NOVEL ZEOLITE CATALYST ROUTES
http://www.dtic.mil/dtic/tr/fulltext/u2/a216444.pdf

Aromatics concentrations must be less than 20 volume percent 2 because high aromatic fuels produce smoke which excessively heats jet engine components. There exists an added complication for military aircraft related to the visible contrail behind the plane, due to the smoke produced from the combustion of aromatics.
