THE BICEP2 DISCOVERY DEBACLE

April 14, 2014


The following is only one example of what I meant by the discovery of cosmic inflation being a spurious effect. My purpose is to get people thinking along such lines if you are interested in getting to the bottom of this.

The antennas (bold lines in the above figure) are slots cut in a metal plane. The electric and the magnetic fields induced in the slots extend (bulge out) above and below the metal plane and couple to the feed network when it is placed physically close to the slot. (The extent of these bulging fields region around a slot is on the order of one-sixth the wavelength which is 2 mm.) The portions of the circuit near a slot that are perpendicular to the slot have currents induced in them. This is how the feed network picks up some of the signal.

Also, look at this enlarged view. There is an additional problem apparent here. The properties of the horizontal and the vertical antennas may not be identical (which they must be) because of how they are configured.

In a proper design of this experiment, the circuitry should look the same if the x and the y axes are interchanged, and there should be the necessary clearance around the antennas – as is well-known to experts. If this was not possible, then this design approach should have been discarded.

Actually, I am quite stumped. Never have I seen an antenna design this crowded electrically with this much unshielded circuitry squeezed right next to the antenna, right within its active field region, as you see here with the horizontal bicep2 antenna:

Although the above two effects I have discussed stem from the same reason (placing the feed network too close to the slots, or not allowing sufficient electromagnetic clearance around the slots), they are different. They are:

(1). Signals coupling to the feed network giving rise to false polarization.

(2). Different properties of the horizontal and vertical antennas giving rise to false polarization.

While these may be small effects not apparent in lab tests or range tests, it is precisely such small effects that the telescope is looking to extract out from the sky. In other words, where is the action is is where the problem is.

At any rate, it is abundantly clear that the bicep2 polarization-mapping telescope’s engineering design was grossly defective at the very core (for its intended purpose), and nothing it has measured should be given any credence. In this respect, there are uncanny similarities between the COBE Project and the Bicep2 Project. It is almost like a replay.

HARVARD INFLATION AND GRAVITATIONAL WAVE DISCOVERY SCAM

March 25, 2014

(There was some glitch with my preceding re-blog, causing viewing problems for some. I am making it into a fresh post with a fresh title.)

One fraud discovery left unattended leads to many more fraud discoveries.

OR

One fraud discovery deep sixed makes possible many more fraud discoveries.

The Swedish Nobel Committee has already been tasked and given a timetable to adhere to:

“If Monday’s result proves to be correct then the Nobel committee will almost certainly start reaching for its gongs. So who is in the frame? …. If it confirms Bicep2′s observations, the 2015 Nobel prize committee will have a tough choice to make.” – The Guardian

UPDATE 04/12/14: They are proceeding with the discovery as though it were fully enshrined!

Harvard is in an awful hurry with their discovery – they must be working that 2015 Nobel schedule for John Kovac! I have not seen anything from CalTech or Stanford President yet on their guys.

Harvard President Faust is not even waiting for the planned scientific confirmations! These will undo this “discovery” for sure – and most insiders know that for sure. When that happens, President Faust should fire some butts, for putting her in this situation.

I cannot understand how this spectacular weirdorama of a totally bogus scientific discovery can be made into anything else by quickly deploying it with powerful establishment endorsements – quickly before it melts.

Melt it will – President Faust or no President Faust.

What we are looking at here with the Bicep2 Flash Boys is just COBE Satellite: The Next Generation.

Does President Faust know that every expert scientific commentary in the media on this discovery begins with the caveat “If correct,…”, “If confirmed, …”. Does she know that she is the only one averring that this discovery is a done deal?

Has anyone ever wondered why, in certain very significant quarters, there is total silence over this grand discovery? Verrry interesting!

THE COST OF NOT DEALING WITH SCIENCE FRAUD JOHN MATHER (Update)

March 17, 2014

dreamheron:

I have added an update on today’s report by Harvard on the discovery of Big Bang Gravitation Wave – a very elaborate scam …

Remember I told you this is a scam when the scientific establishment and the media are celebrating this as the greatest discovery by humankind….

Sooner or later it will emerge that they made a “mistake” – don’t fall for this. It is a scam.

AND THAT’S ALL, FOLKS!

February 5, 2014

For seven years I have tried to bring American sham, scam and fraud science and its American purveyors to account.

The American scientific establishment continues to blatantly stonewall and raucously fete the purveyors.

The American Government continues to blatantly stonewall and raucously fete the purveyors.

The American Congress continues to blatantly stonewall and raucously fete the purveyors.

The young of America find no shame in glomming on to the greatest science fraud in history.

The European scientists are suppressing the truth they themselves have found out and are kowtowing to the Americans.

The Nobel-givers are kowtowing to the Americans.

The Vatican blesses the greatest fraud in the firmament history.

But it is not that I am giving up. I will continue to work on my free eBook designed to educate the World outside of the above spheres – should that world wish to be educated on this Great Evil that has befallen our civilization.

THE REAL PROMISE OF JAMES WEBB SPACE TELESCOPE

February 4, 2014


Yesterday there was a big JWST do in NASA Goddard, Sen. Barabara Mikulski in attendance. A video was produced. The quote in the graphic below starts at about 21 minutes.

Sen. Mikulski (25:45 min) seems to have had it in her cue sheet to mention “our very own in-house Nobel Prize winner”, and Goddard Center Director Christopher Scolese was particular to mention that John Mather is the “…Project Scientist … Senior Project Scientist for JWST and our Nobel Prize winner…”. So, even though Mather’s once-elaborate official cv page has been gutted to the bare minimum (why?), there has been no change in his actual status. Nobel Prize has become Mather’s scientific immunity.

Having ushered in the Age of Precision Scientific Measurement in Cosmology, Mather is now well on his way to herald the Age of Exoplanet Meteorology and Oceanography.

All this would be very funny indeed had it not been for $10 billion (JWST + COBE + WMAP) of your money sunk on scam science at Goddard.

In today’s America, the caravan of scam science can go on majestically while the little dogs of truth bark.

As you may have guessed, the so-called science reporters immediately ran with this and reported:

And it will hunt for distant habitable planets by peering into their atmospheres.

WITH BIG BANG COSMOLOGY TRASHED…..

February 3, 2014


OK, folks. For some people it is time to face the music. They danced before you a raucous dance, promoting Big Bang Cosmology to the hilt. Now that I have trashed it, let us not forget those who caused the trash to accumulate so high. Let us hold up before the world the images of those who sought to mislead and misguide you all thse decades.

MORE ON DR. DIPAK DAS, ALLEGED SCIENCE FRAUD

January 27, 2014


Folks, in my earlier post on Dr. Dipak Das, I had posted a link to his written response to the 60,000 page allegation against him by University of Connecticut officials.

As you know, a summary of that 60,000 page report was posted on the Internet and then for some reason, pulled. It is not to be found anywhere on the Internet.

The response letter of Dr. Das had been uploaded by CT Mirror on their web site, after distorting the name of U Conn official Leonard P. Paplauskas, possibly to keep that name out of the search engines. I posted the link to that CT Mirror item in my earlier post. But that link no longer works. I do not know if this is a temporary glitch or something else.

Luckily, I had suspected that something fishy might have been going on, and had saved a copy of Dr. Das’s response. It is a public response to a very public allegation. The public deserves to have it available and to read it. However, if Dr. Das’s estate objects, I will pull it.

For now, here it is (pdf file):

Dr. Dipak Das responds to allegation of science fraud by University of Connecticut

You should read it, and also my earlier post. There may be a lot more going on here than meets the eye.
