I write stuff…

With the hiatus from travel, I’m actually getting some things done around here, including blogging! I wrote a piece for Discovery Space News on hidden black holes and shared my experience as a skeptic on a ghost hunt over on Skepchick.

So go read them. Or not. Whatever floats your boat.

    Dear Professor; Pre-1950’s educators taught us the universe was a perfect vacuume void of all substance and that gravity was attracting our atmosphere to Earth. With the invention of the GC/MS and space exploration we found the opposite to be true. In fact we discovered all space was occupied with gas and/or matter and that a light gas will compress heavier gases. This is played out every day in the chemical industry where Nitrogen gas is used to compress (“blanket”) heavier gases. It’s evident in nature with our atmosphere of Oxygen & Nitrogen being compressed by the Helium, Hydrogen, Lithium, Etc. gases contained in interplanetary space surrounding us. Earth and it’s atmosphere are submerged in an ocean of lighter expanding gases compressing our atmospheric gases thus making it impossible for our atmosphere to escape or even expand. The problem is that very few people have been taught post-1950’s physics. What can be done to bring physics into the 21st century? Can you help? Angelo Pettolino Autror: The AP Theory

    Dear Nicole,
    I tried to leave a longish comment on the Discovery Space News piece, since it is right up my alley, but unfortunately the Twitter thing cut it off. Apparently you can only post a certain number of characters, too bad.
