View from Pri-Fly


This is Pri Fly, Primary Flight Control where the Air Boss has absolute authority over flight operations. As you can see by clicking the map on the right, this blog is seen all over the planet. It is especially enjoyable hearing from places dear to the heart. Welcome to all in AFRICA, TAIWAN, SOUTH AMERICA and the "Red Centre" of AUSTRALIA. Keep those comments coming, for they tell me what you want to see.
The photo below was taken exactly one week ago on June 18, a hot day in the Philippine Sea. An Air Force B-2 bomber is accompanied by Navy and Marine F/A-18 Hornets. The Kitty Hawk (homeport: Yokosuka) Abraham Lincoln (Everett) and Ronald Reagan (San Diego) are accompanied by Ticonderoga-class cruisers, destroyers and supply ships. A successful mission requires thousands of humans and machines functioning together as one unit. In this technological age, teamwork and courage are as valuable as they were 200 years ago. Hopefully within 200 years we'll see fleets of spacecraft sailing to the stars.

So Louise which is it you don't like the: "flat" universe, the "accelerating" universe, the "preposterous" pancake universe, or Sean's "Real" Universe?

Hi everyone: Thanks quinshi, I decided to add my two cents to the Cosmic Variance discussion.
Some years ago I came up with a prediction: Redshift v/c accelerates not because v is accelerating but because c, the speed of light, is slowing down. That prediction fits the data better than any "dark energy" model.
It is tough publishing papers that say c is changing, but my idea is now a subject of serious discussion. Anon, the only thing not to like is the resistance and insults to anyone with an original idea.
