? neutron star compressing heliosphere right now
« on: 20/08/2011 17:22:05 »
The results of the delicate measurement by NASA satellites show that E (its gravity) bends space.  I disagree.  I note this experiment was done at the height of a magnetic incursion by our local bitsy neutron star.  As since, the measurements cannot possibly be correct, merely a result tinged by the compression.  Since this opinion may be considered a conspiracty, I am wondering if any others have noted the specific timing of this 'experiment.'  Also note Russia has launched a radio telescope specifically to look for this less than energetic neutron bit swathed in a magnetic halo.  Note space in the front side of a DL is compressive, and crossing the energy barrier to the back side becomes expansive.  This simple explanation would suffice; why must we again set discoveries that advance our understanding back to zero.

Neutron stars and pulsars

At the center of the expanding cloud is a lone neutron star spinning many times per second, with a mass greater than the Sun, a diameter the size of a small town, and an amazing density of 100 million tons per cubic centimeter. As white dwarfs are supported by "degenerate electrons," neutron stars are supported by degenerate neutrons. The magnetic fields of such collapsed stars are magnified along with the density to strengths millions of millions of times that of Earth. The magnetism is so strong that radiation is beamed out the magnetic axis. The axis is tilted relative to the rotation axis (like that of the Earth), and wobbles around as the little star spins, the beamed energy spraying into space. From a distance, the star looks like a lighthouse: if the Earth is in the way, we get a blast of radiation, and from here see the neutron star as a "pulsar. Young pulsars emit from low-energy radio waves through high- energy X-rays and gamma rays. As the pulsar ages, it slows, and finally emits only radio waves, which is the case for most of the 600 or so pulsars known. When the rotation period is about 4 seconds there is insufficient energy for the pulsar to be seen at all, and it disappears from view. Not fusing anything, the neutron star is held up forever against gravity by pressure exerted its own extreme density.

Modnote - please put copied text in quotes, I know you provided a link but it wasn't clear that the second paragraph wasn't your own.  either use old fashioned type ones (ie the things above the 2 on a keyboard in Europe or above the apostrophe in USA - " ) or go to preview, highlight the copied text and hit the quote button (which is the second button from the right just above the emoticons, it's three lines in a speech bubble.


On your comments - do you have a link to the experiment?  Energy/Mass warping space-time is the basis of einstein's general relativity and has been very well proved, we can see it through the orbit of mercury and a huge number of other effects.

Discussion on keyboards - and the heinous calumny heaped on her brittanic majesty's fine language moved to chat.
