UPDATE 01/02/2022: I have also not found any photos of Mather with Goddard Center Director Dennis Andrucyk or the Deputy Director Anne Kinney. I also do not see any photos of him with any leaders of JWST. The last one was in 2016 (a press conference with Eric Smith.)

PHYSICS MEGAFRAUD MEGATREND: A Tale of Two Telescopes

December 30, 2021

Paula Szkody aas.

Below you see the locations of the Penzias-Wilson antenna (Holmdel, NJ, USA) and the Paris Herouni antenna (Aragats Mountains, near Yerevan, Armenia). A radio telescopes needs to be in a cold dry place where the air is dry. It needs to be far away from oceans. It needs to be far away from industrial radio noise and aviation corridors.

Below you see the Penzias-Wilson antenna and the Herouni antenna. In no way, shape or form would the former qualify as an astronomical radio telescope. If it serendipitously makes an observation that is suspected to be an astronomical discovery, there is only one thing to do:  Make that same observation with a proper telescope. There were many radio telescopes in the world that could look for this radiation in one part of the spectrum or another. If Penzias-Wilson could see the radiation, they sure as hell could see it. Strangely, that never happened. Not then. Not by the time the Nobel Prize was given in 1978. And not to this day.

In terms of gain, antenna pattern, noise threshold, and environmental noise, the Herouni antenna was vastly superior to the Holmdel antenna. Still it did not see the spectral radiation.

The physics fraudsters not only use billion-dollar machines to make grand discoveries. They also use rinky-dink contraptions to make grand discoveries. Whatever works.

Wouldn’t it be cost-effective if gravitational waves were likewise discovered by a back-country dowser!
