Merry Christmas


One of the most famous and influential photos of all time, Earthrise seen by Apollo 8 on December 22, 1968. Some people doubt the usefulness of people in Space, but would a robot have taken this picture?

I'll start with friends like Kea in Australia where it is already December 25, to Nigel and others in the UK who quietly promote what I've been doing, and follow the sun to friends in American and Hawaii. This even goes to those who can't stand a changing c, attack the idea with spurious mathematical arguments and try to ignore the blog. (I know you mean well) Merry Christmas to all!

I wish everyone a happy future. All I can humbly say is that the Sun will not grow in luminosity until the oceans boil, nor will the Universe tear itself apart with "dark energy." I can also say that Sun, planets, Black Holes, even earthquakes and volcanoes are all intimately connected. I hope that everyone pays more attention to life and all the gifts God and Nature have given us.

Christmas greetings, and more grist for the mystery mill.

Thanks, ttyler. Mercury has been an enduring mystery, especially since we know so little about it. If magnetic fields are caused by an internal singularity, strength or lack of such field can be explained by how fast the singularity rotates.

Sorry ttyler, I just came across your comment from December 21. Moffatt is a good place to start, followed by Albrecht/Maguiejo. Thomson (Lord Kelvin) in a 1875 paper claimed that c was slowing, so lots of people have thought about it.
