A temperature gradient produces a gradient in the refractive index of air, which will bend light.

I agree with you, but does it also occur in a vacuum without any matter present.

How would you propose creating a temperature gradient in a vacuum?

I've connected an aerial to a spectrum analyser and placed it near the bulb what did I find?

I suspect "a spectrum", but I'm willing to be surprised.

Right. There's no reason to assume that any given atom or molecule won't last forever if left by itself.

generic PUP.g it sounds friendly but it isn't, 501 virus attacks two got through. I don't understand the Forum do the science it will be your work and your name on the paper. I would be pleased if you said it was based on the ideas of A.Davis. but you don't have too. Keep me talking I have a lot more to say.
