Quite a Statement

I realize, over time, I'm accumulating quite a collection of articles. I'm making quite a statement. Now, as this is my blog, I could talk about anything I want, and in fact I do talk about anything I want. So what do I wind up talking about? Well it seems to be I talk a... Continue Reading →

Why does the moon revolve around the earth?

It just moves forward. The moon isn’t stationary. It has inertia and no atmosphere in space to slow it down. It just goes. As it moves forward, the gravity of Earth tugs on it and it falls, but because it’s moving forward it misses Earth as it falls and goes around, again and again. That’s... Continue Reading →

Why doesn’t anyone else besides me believe in time traveling?

I don’t know the answer to your question. However, consider this. We are not standing still. In time the Earth rotates around it’s axis, the Earth also rotates around the sun, the sun rotates around the galactic center and the galaxy is merging with Andromeda.

Hypothetically, equally intellectual organisms are living on a near planet when and how would humans discover?

If the life form is on the other side of the Milky-way, or in another... Continue Reading →

Did we “accidentally” bring new bacteria to the moon or Mars via our space exploration programs?

Probably, and that’s why terraforming is a bad idea. Inside the scientifically minded community, there are two distinct ideas. Don’t contaminate. Leave whatever planet it happens to be in the original prestine condition so we can study it. (This is the predominant, tree hugging concept.) Screw number 1. Terraform the planet. Make it livable for humans,... Continue Reading →

When is enough enough?

I'm not old. Sixty five. I look younger, but how much more time do I have? Twenty three years from now will be the age my father died. Thirty-four years from now will be the age my mother died. I still have some time. Right? I notice, however, that I think about "the end" a... Continue Reading →

Fact or Fiction? How do you know?

Inside a category called "Fact or Fiction" on a blog that claims "Making sense of it all," it might serve to answer the questions: "Fact or Fiction? How do you know?" We have a president calling "Fake News" basically to anyone who criticizes him and claims of planet destroying events on the Internet. How do... Continue Reading →
