Another Top 50!

Among the other happy greetings from friends on February 19, comes word that this little blog is included in Science Master's

Top 50 Astronomy Blogs.

"This great blog is from a full time scientist and offers insights into astronomy."

Am sorry that this wasn't noticed sooner, but this scientist is often too busy to spend time looking for how many lists she has made. Thanks to Mandy the Science Master, and everyone else today!

And congratulations!

Recently I've been reading about the cosmological ideas of Hannes Alven who was against the big bang. He invented magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) His Nobel prize speech is like none other:

"It is to some extent the playground of theoreticians who have never seen a plasma in a laboratory. Many of them still believe in formulae which we know from laboratory experiments to be wrong. The astrophysical correspondence to the thermonuclear crisis has not yet come."

Thanks Kea. I hope you escaped effects of the Christchurch earthquake.

For Carl: I still like the BB because R=ct predicts it. However people who disike the BB are often shut out of science, like Alfven's ideas. Maybe his astrophysical crisis has come today.

I have still to hear from friends in Christchurch, so I hope they are busy out rescuing other people.

Louise; Yes, I also believe in one version or another of the big bang. But I found other parts of Alven's ideas quite convincing. For one thing, he believed that there have to be large currents running in fairly small regions of intergalactic space.

I guess I'd like to see a more complete discussion of just why Alven's ideas are considered wrong.

Please accept my humble congratulation, too.. BTW Where we can read about concise explanation/derivation/applications of the GM=tc^3 relation?

I came across this post accidentally, but I am so glad it was posted! I am very curios about sites on astronomy, as I am at all new to it... it will take me long to read all the materials listed, but I hope it is worth it.
