PhD: Phobos and Deimos

3 conferences in 3 weeks, in 3 different cities! People actually get paid to have this much fun? The Phobos-Deimos conference is happening at NASA Ames in California. We just heard famous planetary scientist William K. Hartmann talk about theories of a late-heavy bombardment of asteroids. Evidence from Earth's Moon points to a huge storm of impacts 3.9 billion years ago. According to Hartmann, not all scientists agree. No one is sure how the Martian moons originated. Since Apollo, most have agreed that our Moon is the result of a giant impact. The answers may wait until people have visited Phobos and Deimos.

This area of research is among the most difficult for me to sort out what is real and what is fact, but I do sympathize with your approach to what we may still expand on in our understanding of science and the world.

We are playing with ideas on ideas none of which are yet confirmed explicitly. In my own take on things I find reasons to doubt that we are doing more than operating with too little a generalization. All as a matter of interpretation.

I do not necessarily think our ideas on magnetism or the transfer of momenta between black hole like objects is a key fact one way or the other.

If this is a true physical phenomenon I also see new and strange consequences. I recall long ago reading The Hollow Earth arguments and knowing how it simply was not true how convincing it was a read.

So I will try to ask a question that makes sense. Can such effects of such an object (which may not be a hollow object but replete with structure in the vacuum) influence say our sister planets? That is, would we observe certain anomalies tied to earth in the moons of Mars?

Regarding what's going on in the earth's core, I've just found some research having to do with there being a nuclear reactor down there. It seems that keeping the earth's magnetic field running requires massive amounts of power, more power than we can explain. See discussion on physics stack exchange: http://physics.stackexchange.com/q/7004/1272.

But they've not found the right number of anti-neutrinos. So maybe they have it half right and the energy source is down there, but from a black hole instead of radiation. Hmmm.

It boils down to one thing; can you get the He-3 from a black hole? That would explain the Hawaii basalt data and the lack of anti-neutrinos. See http://arxiv.org/abs/1011.3568 and http://geoscience.lngs.infn.it/Program/Pdf_presentations/Maricic.pdf

Hello all! For Pesla, there are a few papers on solar system anomalies. In particular, the "Flyby Anomaly" may be an indicator of a Black Hole in the Earth.

For carl: The dynamo models of Earth's core would grind to a halt due to the enormous friction in the core. A little Black Hole, however, would keep things spinning nicely.

Kea: Thanks again for the links and encouragement!
