I understand that this is how you feel. But perhaps, instead of just complaining and deriding other people's discussions, you could bring some content to the table. Start a thread with something that interests you. If you give us more than "one line, drive-by posts" then some here might be willing to engage you.

 

There is an old saying that goes something like this: "You need to be the change you wish to see in the world."

 

Just a suggestion to aid you in avoiding boredom! ;)

it`s sound like the Wingmakers...

I might be more accurate to say, the wingmakers sound like "it".

 

Trying not to ruffle feathers;

 

The Wingmakers is very new-age, it is for another generation. Todays youth yurns for a little more than crystals and acid trips...I fear it is more calculated so much as 'discovered'. It is an update to the same process that started in the 60s. Believe it or not...there are people within the bowels of certain groups that get paid to come up with elaborate creations like the wingmakers (which is, incidently, one of the most extensive efforts).

 

Of course people will doubt it, there are enough microscopic scraps to keep the doubt at bay. The more time you invest in trying to decode all the psuedo-mystic-science...the further your claws tend to dig in. Surely something so complex, couldnt be made up...

 

Titor is less complex, but the same principle applies.

True, but i have been around when the genuinely stimulating ones pop-up every now and again, they always pass with little interest...

If time is a function of mass then maybe the center of gravity is also a center of time. What would that mean?

It's not often stated but newton's 3rd law of motion can be interpreted as: "all forces are radially exerted toward/away from the center of mass of a system". :)

In clarification of the above:

 

All forces are exerted toward/away from the center of mass of a system OR orthogonal to the vector connecting the individual centers of mass. The former transfers linear energy, while the latter conveys rotational energy.

 

Consider a rocket which propels a gas out one end in order to move the rocket the other direction. The force exerted by the propellant's acceleration is exerted on both propellant and rocket radially outward from the center of gravity of the propellant-rocket system.

 

In another example, consider two objects colliding. The force one object exerts on the other is exerted on itself by the second object, thereby making a radially inward force upon the center of gravity of the system.

 

The transfer of force is inherently linked to gravity. And force is a measure of how things change in time (dp/dt).

It can be seen that there are 3 kinds of force (not talking about fundamental forces like strong, weak, etc.):

 

1) Expansive

 

2) Compressive

 

3) Rotational

 

One may argue that there are 2 rotational forces (CW & CCW) but it is merely a matter of perspective.

1) Expansive

 

2) Compressive

 

3) Rotational

aka: Strain, stress and torque. Add shear and you have four non-fundamental forces.

 

 

Just another damned cowboy with a college education.

That's very good from an engineering perspective. But think of it from the more fundamental view of charged particles or objects. They attract or repel each other toward or away from the center of gravity of the interacting system. A glancing blow imparts rotational inertia to the objects. Because of the balanced nature of forces it would seem that all force in the universe is completely balanced and the universe should be symmetrical until we remember that some of this is bound as rotation.

Set yours Time pods and Clocks...Spring!!!

 

Set yours Clocks and Time Pods ahead 1 hour late Saturday...

 

Quoted:

 

Don't forget to set your clocks an hour ahead this weekend. On Sunday at 2 a.m. daylight saving time goes into effect.

 

 

 

This is only the third year that daylight saving time has begun the second Sunday in March. For years, the first Sunday in April was the day the clocks and other time pieces were set forward.

 

 

 

Daylight saving time continues until 2 a.m. Sunday, Nov. 1.

 

 

 

The moving forward of the daylight saving time start date was part of the federal Energy Policy Act adopted in 2005.

 

 

 

Thus, on this Sunday evening you will have one more hour of sunshine than on Saturday.

 

 

 

Daylight savings time first began in the United States during World War 1 in an effort to conserve fuel used to generate artificial lighting. It was suspended after the war ended, but was restored again during World War 2. In the years that followed, some states and communities continued to have daylight savings time, but the time periods varied.

 

 

 

Under the Uniform Time Act passed in 1966 any state that adopted daylight savings time would have to follow the dates set by the federal government.

 

 

 

Today all states in the nation except Arizona and Hawaii observe daylight saving time.

 

 

 

Many other nations, including the European Union, for instance, observe daylight savings time during a period beginning the last Sunday of March and extending until the last Sunday of October.

 

 

 

Most of Mexico and all of Canada have daylight savings time as do Russia and China.

Re: Set yours Time pods and Clocks...Spring!!!

 

Well, Arizona may be smart not adhering to the Daylight Savings Time. For 4 months now only out of the year, you are not on Daylight Savings Time. I would rather be on regular time all year around actually.

 

And what happened to telescops? All this computer stuff they include and now, it just seems like crap to me. I guess it is good that my 30 year old Cave Astrola Stand for my 10" telescope still works along with the telescope. I don't need a computer to set up a telescope and observe the Heavens. I need a star chart and line of sight to it. Funny how some of these manufacturers thought they make money on making telescopes. There are only 3000 amatuer astronomers about in the USA anyway. And some of the old manufacturers I guess have died recently. It is a shame. Dobsonian telescopes are great for low-cost - nudge, nudge, nudge the telescope all night long. But then, without any effort I can at least set up my telescope close enough to North to track for a least a couple of hours on its own and keep the object in the field of view. Well, back to getting some parts again, and some eyepieces. I fail to see why I would want to spend money on half of what they make in that industry in any shape or form. Now it seems to be Russian made mirrors, and all they want to do is add the corrector plate to the front of even a Newtonian telescope and make it into a kind of Shmidtt-Casssegrain type Makatov-Cassegrain type Newtonain telescope. And yes, Dobsonians are cheaper, and not too bad to move around, but well, whatever those manufacturers did to the German Equatorial Mount has not really improved anything. A mount that can only handle a 45lb payload with the type of telescopes they are making. My telescope weighs 60lbs to start off with, and has a mount that can hold at least a 40lb counterweight.

 

And the prices of some of this stuff. Anymore I get that 11" Celestron for around $2600 but geezes at Jim's Mobile, he as a dobsonian made into a sort of equatorial mount (for a large telescope) that cost - can you believe this - $15,900 dollars. Some of the prices I saw were up to $32,000 for a telescope. (of course, you can always buy cheaper, and end up building your own dobsonian at even a less price with a little bit of work and learning).

 

Well, back to getting some eyepieces for those have also gone up - way up in some newer ones - from like say "Nagler" type eyepieces.

 

Well, that is another subject, but when you look at the stars and galaxies and nebulae, you are also looking at light that is from the Past.

 

(I have been out of it for awhile - for various reasons - but if everything else is going to go up - all I need is my battery (or not) to drive my telescope, and the lights - off!)

Re: Set yours Time pods and Clocks...Spring!!!

 

in your question it depends...

 

mr. wolf, mass is a type of energy and you can use DE (like mr. darby has said) to measure it.

 

time in terms of mass, time becomes a lack of energy, and in the inertial frame of reference, time is energy. you notice this when mass gains more energy as it approaches c.

Re: Set yours Time pods and Clocks...Spring!!!

 

I guess they still sorta make a telescope. But, here is the trick.

 

http://www.skiesunlimited.net/index.php?ProductID=32

 

All this error correcting optics can't be seen if you read a little and get some other parts - mainly a little bit longer telescope tube, a 4-vane spider for the secondary mirror that can be moved further towards the front (or the mirror further back towards its end) and instead of using the usual 2.6" secondary sized mirror (ellipse but when angled at 45 degees it becomes - what - a circle shoving the light up to the side of the telescope into the focuser) for like a 10" or even a 2.14" secondary mirror - a 1.52" secondary mirror (or a 1.83" secondary if you are blind and like a bigger brighter low powered field) or even down (if buying a really low-profile focuser - where the eyepiece is focus with part of it inside the tube but not down to the mirror - about an inch inside usually) with par-focal eyepieces (all focus at about the same distance) to a 1.3" secondary mirror - say for really really fine field of view or planetary to show really really really fine detail -- the star images will all be smaller - won't even see the coma in a mirror - your eye ain't that good and well photography is another subject through a telescope) and less obstruction of the main mirror - results in a really really really really really fine detailed image through a telescope. Combined with a good couple of (high and low power) eyepieces - you actually want to look through the telescope instead of being sidetracked with fancy promises - of precision mirrors - duh - only if both are 1/30 wave of light - which usually they are not - combined - only 1/10 wave of light and some mirrors better than others - and other things you just do not need. Try a star chart and citing down the tube with just a reticle finder - eyeball it.

 

Well, like anything else, others always make improvements just on their own.

 

Like being at the Texas Star Party and viewing all those big mirror Dobsonians, but as of yet - the time my little 10" mirror was looking at Saturn at 538 power down there. Oh, and near a few days old moon (3 days old) using 827 power (although it was getting a milky-appearance) like being only 300 miles above the surface of the moon.

 

A few adjustments - allowing for traveling of the mirror up to 2-3-4 inches and a smaller secondary to a closer focuser - all allow with the counterweights in the right place - a telescope to take photography through - an a visual telescope that knocks other made telescopes from a manufacturer - silly.

Re: Set yours Time pods and Clocks...Spring!!!

 

You just gave me an interesting idea, though it's a little off topic. What if we constructed a huge retroreflective mirror and launched it to space, positioning it, say, a light-day away from earth? We could use a telescope to view the previous day by viewing the reflections from the mirror. Of course, it would only give a moving window to the past beginning when the mirror reaches its destination. What do you think?
