Hi Guys, sorry I haven't been on for the last couple of days but it is mad at this end and I have been on call and ended up working all weekend :( its just as well my finacee is away.... Anyway I promised Diomede a link showing that the big bang theory still holds even if there is no redshift so here it is, as an answer to the question of could the universe be collapsing without our knowing

Misread the subject sorry. Nuclear reactions are not the only way of carbon monoxide getting in to the atmosphere. Do you want to look that up or do you want me to go in to that! MikeS :)

if you are linking to things you have to defend them If you know about the atmosphere of Venus you know that any water vapor will readily turn in to sulphuric acid. Venus is as old as the rest of the planets in this system... Sorry Mike

There are some big mysteries left about Venus see here but sadly (and believe me I would LOVE nothing more than to find ANY kind of life anywhere else in our solar system) none of them are about life or age of the planet itself!

Until fairly recently Venus was misunderstood/ not understood at all. Back before 1962 there was a debate about the conditions on Venus, which as thunderbird mentions if covered by a dense layer of cloud. And it was theorised that Venus contained a warm ocean with a surface temp around 45 degrees C, which might well have contained life. This changed in 62 as the Mariner 2 (not Galileo that was

Oh dear it looks like the E.U. is looking very shakey! Please see here (about stellar evolution) and here (about the electric sun theory) and here (about Venus not being a young planet) far more serious questions raised than any redshift issues about the big bang! MikeS

Hi Dio, I agree that good debate, with alternatives to the big bang can only strengthen the science that goes on and will in the long run strengthen the big bangs arguement. However, this only works if you accept points where you are, or might be wrong. I accept the big bang doesn't currently cover everything, but it covers more now than it did 20 years ago. You have yet to accept any of my poin

I'm begining to suspect ulterior motives behind the E.U. theorists. Could this be another creationist arguement in sheeps clothing, anything to knock the big band? I don't know I will look more at it once it is properly written up and see if I can think of any observations which might confirm/deny sections of bit, but at the moment I don't think it has been as well thought out as it is hailed!

Hi Thunderbird I remember you saying earlier in the thread that E.U. made things simpler to understand. Isn't it just simpler to understand that Jupiters massive gravitational pull 'sucks up' a lot of the commets/ asteriods that might otherwise threaten the inner planets? Then on a more local scale wouldn't it also be easier to say that a planets atmosphere buffets many more asteriods away? Als

Hi I'm sorry I don't accept that the red-shift problem in any way harms the big bang theory. All the above is actually saying is the Universe MIGHT not be expanding. Now this can very happily be the case inside the big bang theory, eg the universe could be at bay, or it could be expanding (or contracting) too slowly for our instruments to detect. Also could you provide more info on this Prof.

The question of the Ice Ages is an interesting one, and one I am sure many of us have thought of! My personal opinion is that the cause was geological in one way or another. Current models show that volcanic outgassing is what causes atmospheres to form on planets and my suspicion is that some geological event caused a disruption in the balance of the atmosphere. I have always thought that mayb

The Universe 6th edition is a fantastic book with a lot of great pictures from the HST and practical examples of how the universe works. I advise this book strongly to people with any form of interest in astronomy because you don't have to hold a physics degree to understand and appreciate it. I will hold an open mind to E.U. but at the moment I don't think it explains the way the universe works

Hi Thunderbird, Wow some of those statements are pretty astronomologically flawed "The concept of a 'curved space', which is essential for present cosmological models, is logically flawed because space can only be defined by the distance between two objects" eeek about sums it up. Does the concept of a curved earth also seem flawed in this model? If you are so confident of the E.U. th

Hi Thunderbird, I have looked, I admit briefly, in to the E.U. theory, and it has some really problems to get over before it can fly (I appreciate it is a fairly new theory). The E.U. model of the universe currently has no mechanism for explaining black holes, neutron stars and quite a few other things which the big bang model comfortably explains. Remember also that the big bang has had hundre

Hi Samspoda, I'm doing a bit of a basic astronomy course and no they aren't small black holes. Basically a black hole is so super dense that if there was one big enough to create a sunspot we would know about it due to its effects on orbits etc round the solar system. There are also other tell-tale signs. I pretty sure we know what sun-spots are, but I haven't got that far in the course.... I

Thought everyone knew that. Its not like this is hot off the press. Its a great example of people talking at cross purposes and both getting the wrong meaning. It starts something like Blake :"I set all this up" meaning to Blake he set up the resistance movement on the planet meaning to Avon, he set them up in to a federation trap. It goes down hill from there and is probably one of

And where was Orac in the last scene???

Hi Merc A couple of months ago I posted an equasion on this board showing that most of our teliscopes couldn't do it, and even using the very best (hubble) we could probably only hope to see a dot that would be the remains of the lander module (I don't think the conspiracy theorists realise how big the moon is or how far away it is compared to our low level spy satellites they hark on about) but

Personally I think it is a huge waste of time and money. What is more important? Proving to a couple of nuts that something really happened (and even then they will probably claim that any pictures are probably faked), or discovering mysteries of the universe which might one day lead us to travel among the stars?
