LIGO India update September 2022

September 23, 2022

There is a nice animation video just out (about 6 minutes long), showing what LIGO India would look like when operational.
However, there is currently no reported activity on the ground. LIGO India remains at a standstill.

OMG! OMG! Ligo India is down!

The real-life Theatre of the Absurd!

July 16, 2022

OK, folks, here’s the thing: Don’t get all bent out of shape over my conduct. You have got lots more to worry about before you come to me. You can avoid me by simply not reading my stuff. But you cannot avoid the raging sleaze river that is washing away everything good that you were going to leave to your children. What will the remains of your civilization be like? Now, that is worth worrying about.

Megafrauds to be salvaged by Webb Telescope?

NASA has been putting John Mather front and center as the symbolic face of the Webb Telescope during the unveiling of its first images.

After 32 years of continuous lying, NASA John fesses up

June 29, 2022

John Mather unveiled his grand discovery of the cosmic blackbody with NASA’s COBE satellite at the end of 1989. Already in 1988, Armenian radio astronomer Paris Herouni showed by direct observation that this blackbody radiation was not on the sky (for which Penzias and Wilson had been falsely given the Nobel Prize in 1978). But Herouni was silenced by the American establishment so that Mather could be heroized. The latter was given the Nobel Prize in 2006. Herouni died in 2008, without any recognition for his crucial contribution to science.
.
Mather’s instrument design was a first-class piece of crap. Its results should not even be discussed. The point of the following diagram is to expose his stratagem of maintaining and stonewalling a fraud. This has caused great harm to science, including subsequent bad awardings of the Nobel Prize. But it seems that he is feeling some pressure to change his tune.
.
What he spells out clearly now is that he found sky radiation that exactly matches the radiation from some nondescript plastic thingy. But he has never presented the radiation spectrum for the thingy. So, we don’t know what spectrum he found on the sky, period. And yet, it is enshrined in history that he has found on the sky the perfect blackbody spectrum ( ≡ Planck spectrum). In fact, the experimental result he presents is a phenomenally exact Planck spectrum. Where the heck did that come from? This was a straight out lie that has endured for decades.

Physics publishing – when corruption is absolute

June 27, 2022

Unless you are Sergeant Schultz, you have to agree 100 percent with the title. The mound of evidence is now sky high, and no amount of collective chicanery should distract you from this fact. The physics editors have created the Augean Stables of human civilization, where the stuff has accumulated to make that mound. They are guilty of this. They are all maintaining dignified silence. The question is: Do they know what dignity means anymore than they know what honesty means?
.
The following is an old graphic. Be sure to add in the black hole imaging weirdorama the editors have installed as genius science.

UPDATE: Starmus Festival in Armenia

June 25, 2022

Starmus Festival seems to me to be a for-profit commercial business masquerading as a noble scientific/educational platform. The speakers are paid, and the organizers make money. This shady nature of the business became apparent when the Swiss city of Bern abruptly booted out Starmus in 2019. Read here.
.
First, read this graphic for background. Since publishing this, Nobel Laureate Adam Riess seems to have canceled.
