Saul Perlmutter’s discovery of dark energy (Nobel Prize for physics 2011) was a scam through and through:
Folks, he is at it again! He is about to get $100 million of your money (if you are an American taxpayer) to continue to hunt for dark energy. The solid granite foundation for his proposal was that he had already discovered the existence of that dark energy.
He did nothing of the kind. He scammed then, and he is scamming now. He is leveraging his taxpayer scam. It is a damn shame for UC Berkeley to permit this to go on unchecked in their premises.
Read this news report:
Perlmutter, a professor of physics at the University of California, Berkeley. “And it’s also designed for just the wave length range, just the colors, where we need to study the supernovae and the other galaxies in order to study dark energy.”
The new NASA telescope is known as WFIRST, which stands for wide-field infrared survey telescope. If Congress approves initial development funds of $50 million to $100 million by the end of the year, WFIRST could launch sometime between 2022 and 2025.
A telescope like it has been in the works for more than 15 years, at one point developed by a Joint Dark Energy Mission made up of NASA and the Department of Energy. Now the project is back in NASA’s hands.
Despite the project’s bumpy history, Perlmutter is optimistic.
“At this point things are sounding good,” he said.
