What a heck? It has been over year from the flyby but no results released by NASA. How hard that can be? Seriously. NASA could have put like a short tweet or something out for two weeks after the flyby… but nooo! I wonder why…?
Maybe those results are buried under somebody’s backyard or something? Are those results classified for some reason? Anyway, my prediction \(1.09\) mm/s at perigee looks pretty strong, at least when I retrodict those previous flybys with my formula.
Update: I had a quite interesting tweet exchange with Mike McCulloch who told that he got confirmation from former NASA employee that there wasn’t any anomalous velocity increase with Juno Earth flyby. On top of that, he got that information only a week after the flyby.
Weird part is that in AGU Fall Meeting 2013 there was an ePoster (which is now non-accessible, here’s its abstract thou) which said that the data analysis is still ongoing. It included also a picture which kind of hinted that some kind of anomalous increase was measurable… pretty strange! On the other hand, Mike told that there is some “tension” regarding these flyby anomalies in NASA.
I’m puzzled! No other options than waiting and trying to probe more info from NASA.
How long does it take before somebody gives ToEbi a chance? I mean those antimatter experiments (here and here) suggested earlier. Experiments and collaborations were offered for many mainstream physicists. Elapsed time from those suggestions is kind of ignorance meter to me 🙂
I decided to put a timer on my blog which reveals immediately how much time has elapsed after my latest post describing the proton annihilation experiment. You can find the timer also from blog’s main page, so it will be easy to keep eye on.
Without further due… here it is, the timer:

Those ignorant bastards! 😉
Aah… It’s a spring time again! 🙂 What’s more relaxing than putting one’s garden ready for the upcoming summer? I can hardly wait those lazy days in my garden swing, reading and relaxing. I have frozen my book project for now, simply because I don’t have enough time for it. Pushing my antimatter research collaboration ahead consumes all of my available spare time.
It’s kind of weird feeling to know something totally new and exciting about our universe, something which hasn’t been discovered yet by majority of people. Also the resistance against my ideas from the representatives of mainstream physicists is amusing 🙂 Skillful idiots! I’ll have another thing coming for you 😀
And now… I’m having my five day Easter holiday. Have fun!
You know what that means, don’t you? If not, check it out from wiki. Acting according to that pattern is just a part of human being behaviour 🙂 I’m not free from it, you are not free from it and actually your pet dog is not free from it (even though it’s not a human being, no, it’s not). This phenomenon actually goes worse by time and education, how could it be otherwise? Real problem emerges when we have developed stuff on top of something else, which happens to be wrong or at best, half-true.
Nice example comes from contemporary theoretical particle physics. Physicists are asking where’s nearly all the antimatter lurking? It must have been annihilated in early universe! No other explanations, that must be the reason! Obviously we are living surrounded by normal matter and that fact should really be a clue for physicists 🙂 But… that’s not invented here…
Ok then, what would you say in a hypothetical situation where normal matter is manipulated with extremely low energy so that it acts as antimatter? If that phenomenon was produced in a lab and results were reported on some science journal, would you believe it? I don’t think that you would believe it straight out. More likely you would take a cautious approach and wait if somebody else is going to confirm the result. You know, multiyear brainwashing, fear of losing one’s career, other involvements, etc. any excuse goes 🙂
But what would you say or do if somebody accidently blasts a major city up? It must have been conventional nuke accident, right? Even if the event happened for example in Stockholm, Oslo, Montreal, Tokyo or in Rome? Maybe it was something hitting from space? I’ll bet you would look for the answer everywhere but from antimatter. Absurd situation!
Well, this is another juicy example on how lost contemporary theoretical particle physics really is 🙂 At first, you can check some historical facts from here and here. So, according to QCD spins shouldn’t affect the interaction between protons, but evidently they do. Should theoretical physicists do something about the discrepancy? I bet they would like to, but they are clueless! You know, spin is an intrinsic particle property which have no meaning in classical sense.
ToEbi is based on classical spinning particles and this interpretation resolves the discrepancy pretty easily. If used energies are small enough then incident particles have time to interact “properly” with each other. At first, they change their (ToEbi defined) spin vectors parallel due to denser FTE between them. Few moments (very short moments indeed) later particles change their spin vectors anti-parallel which ejects particles apart as expected.
If used energies are big enough then incident particles don’t have time to interact “properly”. They just collide, then change their spin vectors anti-parallel and scatter as expected. The interesting part is when used energy is in the sweet spot where incident particles have enough time to interact with their spin vectors just a little bit but not too much. In this situation, parallel (contemporary particle) spin particles interact as they would if the used energy was smaller, they change their spin vectors anti-parallel and scatter away as expected.
Now, if we have anti-parallel spin particles in the sweet spot energy range what will happen? Incident particles don’t have time to change their spin vectors too much towards the parallel spin vector configuration, they just collide and scatter, BUT due to their anti-parallel spin vectors, which goes down to those electrons constructing a proton, they hit each other far more rarely than expected! (Second law of ToEbi in case of electrons) And that’s what the thorn in the side of QCD is all about.
As Luboš Motl would say, and that’s the memo 😉
If you read this post you are most likely aware of so called proton spin crisis. Current theoretical particle physics predicts that measured quark should have the same spin direction as of the whole proton while other two quarks just cancel each others spins out. But results from experiments don’t agree with the prediction, hence proton spin crisis.
Does this discrepancy somehow bother particle physicists? Not that much obviously, the crisis has been around for something like 20 years now. Naturally, it will take a plenty of time to fix current spaghetti models so that everything still keeps on working according to its rules 🙂
On the other hand, if we look at the “crisis” through ToEbi there won’t be any problems. In picture, we have the setup as seen by contemporary particle physics and by ToEbi.
Both moving particle (electron, muon) and stationary proton has the same spin direction in relation to some axis. Now, according to contemporary particle physics’ prediction, ejected “quark” (it’s actually plain vanilla electron) should have the same spin direction after the impact. Why the heck it should work like that? Do you really think that when a spinning particle hits another spinning particle there won’t be any spin axis changes? Well, think again.
In reality, when moving and spinning particle knockouts a proton electron out from a nucleus they both change their (ToEbi) spin vector orientations due to interaction. Due to much higher spin frequency (in case of moving electron), moving particle doesn’t deviate too much from its original spin vector orientation and it eventually precesses back to its original contemporary particle physics spin direction. Knockout electron however changes its spin vector orientation in more random fashion (multiple factors involved, e.g. hitting angle between incident electrons) which eventually leads to a selection between two possible contemporary particle physics spin directions in relation to the selected axis.
So, where’s the crisis?
You know the story behind my post’s title. To me, it’s about time to say out loud the naked truth… mainstream theoretical physics has no decent clothes! But this time, at least I think so, those who made the clothes (theories) had good intentions. Pretty much everything in life is more or less random walk and this applies also in the development of theoretical physics. Few wrong turns, too influential people at the wrong place at the wrong time and so on… What have we now?
QM = wrong, Standard Model = wrong, String Theory = OMG, so wrong (or not even wrong as said by one, mmm…, individual), Einstein’s work = wrong! Holy Shit! We have a bunch of fucked up theories and now we are wondering how to mix them all together. What a waste of time and money! 😀 I’m sorry to say this but you guys ain’t so smart than you think you are. You are skillful though, if that consoles 😉
What theoretical physics needs is a total reboot. When we are going to get one? Take a ques… It will happen exactly after the first man-made antimatter based explosion. Until that day, mainstream theoretical physics can keep on living in denial.
