The Ellensburg WA sky for the week of 9/16/17

Saturday: “You know Aries and Cancer and Draco and Libra. Leo and Pisces and Virgo and Hydra. But, do you recall, the pointiest asterism of all? Triangulum, the three sided asterism, had a very pointy edge….” Sorry. Some stores have started sending out their Christmas catalogues and that has put me in the mood to modify some Christmas songs. Anyway, Triangulum is a small constellation between the more prominent Andromeda and Aries. Its main feature is a skinny triangle oriented parallel to and nearly four fists held upright and at arm’s length above the east horizon at 11 p.m.

Sunday: Jupiter is about a half a fist above the west-southwest horizon and Saturn is two fists above the south-southwest horizon at 7:45 p.m.

Monday: This morning is a 3M morning. A Moon, Mercury, and Mars morning. (Wait. Morning starts with “m”, as well. So maybe it’s just a 4M. Anyway….) The waning crescent moon is one fist above the east horizon. Bright Mercury and somewhat bright Mars are to the lower left of the Moon. Very bright Venus is about a fist to the upper right of the Moon.  The star Regulus is right below Venus.

Tuesday: To celebrate the start of school at Central Washington University tomorrow, you could take a quick trip to Mars. How about America’s desert Southwest? Not enough time? Then just look at some photos from… from…. Hmmm. The photos at https://goo.gl/Elx7O8 look like they could be from either place. The Murray Buttes region of Mars, where the Curiosity rover has been exploring, look a lot like the landscape of Utah. So much so that the Mars-based movie John Carter was filmed there. Look for John Carter at your local video store. (“What’s that?” said the child.) Look for Mars one fist above the east horizon at 6 a.m.

Wednesday: Fomalhaut, the southernmost bright star visible from the northern USA, is one fist above the south-southeast horizon at 11 p.m.

Thursday: According to “One world, group hug, love everyone” philosophy, political borders are human-made and can’t be seen from space so why can’t we all just get along. According to real world, pragmatic discoveries, some human-made political borders CAN be seen from space. Since 2003, India has illuminated its border with Pakistan to prevent illegal crossings. In 2011, astronaut Ron Garan took a picture of that border from the International Space Station. For more information, including the photo, go to http://goo.gl/mY8xG.

Friday: At precisely 1:02 p.m. PDT, the center of the Sun crosses the celestial equator and passes into the southern sky. The celestial equator is an imaginary line that divides the sky into a northern and southern half. When the Sun is in the southern half of the sky, it appears to take a shorter path from rising to setting. It also does not get as high in the sky at noon. This leads to shorter days and longer nights. Since the Sun crosses the celestial equator today, there is an instant when it is equally in the northern and southern sky, called the north and south celestial hemispheres. This so-called “equal night” is given by the Latin word equinox. Thus, today is known as the Autumnal Equinox. However, the day and night are not of equal duration today. The sun rises at 6:49 a.m. and sets at 6:59 p.m. Day and night are closest to equal duration on Monday.

...interstellar travel (thousands G of constant acceleration)... gravitation, dimensions and inertia: the Matter... The electromagnetic radiation: quanta (pieces) of energy in discrete amounts (minimum and independents), photons, which move in waves... Why energy quanta (photons) are attracted by gravitational fields of "stellar lenses" curving their trajectories and move on?...go ahead because they have inertia...and are attracted because the Energy also has Gravitation, but does not manifest because it no emits Gravitons, or emits in imperceptible degree, because it has to be condensed enough like in matter for that, but it is sensitive to Gravitation from Matter emits... Energy and Gravitation "associated"...and...the Gravitational Force is another manifestation, unknown yet, from Energy...(bo "curvature" of that called "space-time" relativistic)... Its particle exchange, the theoretical Graviton yet...maybe "quanta of gravitational energy"... The Energy (e=mc²) is sensitive to Gravitation but hardly emits Gravitons... The Matter, which is condensed Energy (m=e/c²), emits now Gravitons proportionally to its density... The Matter with normal density, naturally, emits few Gravitons (weak intensity of gravitational force). But...if someday could transform some of matter, not in Energy by annihilation with antimatter but entirely in Gravitational Force with an exponential Gravitons (or antigravitons) emission...would have a way to amplify the Gravitational Force a certain amount of mass... Light (photons) can be directed with a mirror... Gravity (gravitophotons) perhaps also can be directed someday the same such as light in a car´s headlight placed in ceiling looking downwards... This would be necessary for having artificial gravitational attraction only toward the ceiling in all the floors of the ship, each down´s floor must have less own gravity-power because receives gravitational attraction from all up´s floors. This can be difficult to observe in Universe because, although with unequal intensity, there are Gravitational Forces actuating from all directions. But in...gravitational transformers...for spacecrafts to thousands G of constant acceleration...

(2)...interstellar travel (thousands G of constant acceleration)... The Electromagnetic and Gravitational Forces have some obvious similarities (fulfill the Law of Inverse of the Square) as both are "inversely proportional to the square of the distance that separates"...distance between the poles of two magnets the Electromagnetic...and distance between the centers of two masses the Gravitational... Just as now can using the Electromagnetic Force for obtain different voltages, currents and electrical powers...electrical transformers...perhaps someday when that mysterious Gravitational Force reveal its secrets, can also using it and amplify its emission (converting the mass exponentially in Gravitons) somehow for obtain different intensities and gravitational powers...gravitational transformers... Spacecrafts with indestructible structures and the distribution of a building of housing flats (where are the foundations would the nozzles)... Antigravitational fields directed forward would go shoving and accelerating the space´s dust until reaching (the dust) almost ship-speed the dust´s cloud matter-feeder ("fuel") always placed at ship´s front (cloud 1st half travel accelerating)...and placed ship´s astern when ship rotates 180º (new cloud 2nd half travel decelerating), leading dust with Gravitational peripheral fields; already the dust with slow differential-speed between dust and ship (each dust´s particle already does not is a bullet)...((at Halfway and also before Finish travel, the ship overtakes and consumes totally the dust´s cloud: halfway, max speed ship and max speed cloud, when ship ◄STARTS TO BRAKE, the 1st cloud would continue with its max speed free forward already alone without the ship... For there are not dangerous speedy free lethal dust´s particles at Space...)); towards the ship converters matter/antimatter, where at half of matter would transform in antimatter to feed the insatiable demand for the voracious annihilation rocket engines ejecting the appreciable mass of the Pions, produced in large quantities, through the nozzles to the speed of light...a rocket´s thrust = ejection by nozzle (mass*speed) in each second...and maintaining indefinitely to the ship at thousands G of constant acceleration... Powerful gravitational fields inside the living areas would counteract the HUGE CONSTANT ACCELERATION of the ship, keeping them to 1g...

(3)...interstellar travel (thousands G of constant acceleration)... Gravity is a fundamental property of the Matter. Perhaps each material particle would work how a microsphere which emits, would be gravitons = PHOTONS, waves in straight line at all space directions. By some reason in magnetic substances, these photon waves straight lines perhaps would braid among adjacents microspheres forming supposedly Gravitational Cords that already do not go in straight line faraway, but go in that object to a equilibrium point, the Pole, converging by exterior attracted by the Gravitational Cords from the other Pole...the "magnetic field". In the stellar Fusion is minimum the matter quantity that transforms into Energy, but if someday is obtained the matter/antimatter annihilation to exponentially convert all the mass into Energy (photons), perhaps would have a spectacular increment of the Gravitational Force during the action. So the Electromagnetic Force would be in reality the same Gravitational Force, with photon as the same exchange particle, presented at "other format"... If in the matter/antimatter annihilation could, instead of photons, be obtained antiphotons (antigravity) instead of attraction would have repulsion from the rocket engine toward the passengers, auto-synchronizing (major or minor↓↓↓↓acceleration...major or minor↑↑↑repulsion) rocket acceleration downwards with antigravity repulsion upwards for maintaining the living areas to 1g...in to thousands G of constant acceleration Starships...

...interstellar travel constant acceleration (immortals 2)... Cloning?...direct to the Future...3D Bioprinting...your recorded Memory to the new body and...Immortality. For us is to soon for hook to the 1st Immortal Generation. Who knows...tucked in liquid nitrogen at 200 ºC below zero cot can feel the pass of Time. When after 500 years make open your eyes again and someone say... Hello!! ...you will believe that the Goodbye was just a moment ago... Where am I?...(applause, shouts, laughs...) in Biomedical Recovery center. What day is today?... July 21 of 7,018; was selected, centuries ago, in a Planetary Convention the beginning of Bronze Age like true History start... If I was...oh Goddess...give me a mirror...are you sure?...yes...aarrghghgg... Do not worry, at once we print a new body to your size. Take, choose in your Catalog. Let me see...this to the "athletic" is right... Ok. And your Princess, how old are you?...those things do not ask to a woman. Come on your new Life awaits you. Wow!...has broken me a leg to put it on the floor... Do not worry, we carry you with open arms to the Mom-Printer, you just have that let to it your genes. Printer will restore and use as a basis this ancient body of yours for make to you again. We will see us again?... Perhaps on vacations because you have been stayed near, in the X planet of the star Vega.

...3D Bioprinting-Immortality (mom-printer)... on wake up, but...if I am, when I was 18 years old...and still so I remember all my Life in the ancient body before... On the body the important is the head, in the head the important is the brain, in the brain the important is...The Memory...which is, along with Genes and Image, simply, what we are... Your recorded Memory to the new young perfect identical bioprinted body and...Immortality...already the accidents do not matter. The Memory is the "soul" (software), our body only is the "automobile" that transports us (hardware)... To what extent are we willing to recognize a friend, or picture yourself, who has received an orthopedic implant after an accident?. Until 1 leg?, besides of leg the 2 arms?, besides of this the chest?, besides of this...?, where until we still considering to it the same person?... Ultimately, already outside from the physical body, the Memory remains... Wherever our Memory goes, over there we are... Record the Memory in a electronic format and stored by Law in the Official Data Banks, along with Genes and a Photo of each one, waiting there are in the Future... 1: BIOPRINTED BODIES genetically identical,in image and all, to the originals in which "revitalize" to the electronic sleepers... 2: SPACE where to live a new and Immortal Life in some Universe´s habitable place. (But...is that..."it" already would be not "Me"...it would be a "cyborg/clone/avatar/frankenstein"... Are you sure?, because to sleep, lose consciousness, "it" disappears every night (die=sleep=fall fainted: switch off and darkness, the unique difference is when sleeping the body continues horizontal living alone vegetal without us, how an empty house no owner-occupied)...and wake up "it" appears every morning (rebirths)...and our MEMORY instantly auto-recognize us, the same in our own original body which in our new body...

(3b)...interstellar travel (thousands G of constant acceleration)... How the Nature repeats successful designs...and there are some substances that rotate the plane of polarization of light, then perhaps... Electromagnetic Force: in magnetic substances the supposed photons Gravitational Cords...e.g. braided to the right: same Pole repulsion, and braided to the left: same Pole repulsion. Pole braided to the right against Pole braided to the left: attraction... Gravitational Force: perhaps could be something similar but inverse...e.g. photons Gravitational Cords braided dextrorotatory: from Matter...and braided levorotatory: from Antimatter... Gravity: matter/matter, attraction. Antigravity: antimatter/antimatter, attraction... Matter/Antimatter, repulsion... Electromagnetic and Gravitational Forces supposedly joined them...

tonyon said...

(4)...interstellar travel (thousands G of constant acceleration)... What is a Force?... Gravity...two objects attract between them emitting gravitons, how two pirate-ships hooked by ropes with hooks from the other... Each emitted graviton perhaps would go invisibly united to its emitter object, such as if would go an elastic cord with infinite length and when arrives till the other object, by far that it is, "knows" toward where has that "pulling"...never are confused the gravitons emitted by different sources "pulling" toward do not is... The gravitons that come from Andromeda they "pull" toward Andromeda, and do not toward the Magellanic Clouds... That graviton comes climbing toward the steel object which falls from a tower...when arrives to the object, what finds?...sighted from its perspective finds which the object in reality does not exist...only "sees" a vacuum, here a nucleus of protons...far over there some electrons in orbit... Where "hooking for pulling" from this object which does not exist?, asks itself...also asks itself from where comes, how went emitted because over there also only was vacuum and some subatomic particles here and there... Ah, I know..."will hook" in the magnetic force lines which go away for this huge vacuum joining the nuclei of protons (+) with their far electrons (-), in these force lines made with Photons emitted from electrons...but, they are lines of electromagnetic force and I am a graviton... Ah, from where comes a graviton of here, from where comes?, perhaps from interior of some Proton where the gluons, what an adhesive!...indestructibly join quarks to form it...and goes to the place from where I come for make the same, "hooking for pulling". So that perhaps...Graviton hooks in Proton that seems strong... The Gravitational Force how solution...someday all spacecrafts always will go to thousands G of constant acceleration... The Universe is just there for us... What is a Force?...who emits it?...where it "hooks"?...

(4b)...interstellar travel (thousands G of constant acceleration)... The entire Universe gyrating. The "phantom position"... LMC galaxy around the Milky Way... When it is in an orbital point emits its gravitons toward here...when it is to quite a few degrees from point before those emitted gravitons do not can "pulling" toward the already "phantom position" where LMC is not placed now, so that the Gravitons must have a quality of trajectories reorganization it depends moving of the object, the new emitted would go away auto-correcting the trajectories of the gravitons before for the attraction always being toward the actual position... Andromeda and Milky Way... The Photons it transit by the "phantom position" because we see Andromeda not only how it was 2 million years ago, but also "where it was" at that time. At different way those emitted Gravitons in each place then must go away course actualizing among them... Matter/Antimatter annihilation rockets... to 9800 kms/sec²... Day 508: Half Journey...1 million light years...high hyperluminal-speed = 0.0455 light years/sec... In 2.79 years, here is Andromeda... spherical\tridimensional\spatial Heading...intergalactic navigation in Starships to thousands G of constant acceleration...

...interstellar travel constant acceleration (immortals new body)... 3D Bioprinting...the technology used to print documents is also being utilized to create living tissue, in a not too distant future to "print", overlapping layer upon layer, whole organs such as a heart, a liver, a kidney, and one day a whole body. In the beginning the basic technique was exactly the same as using a normal inkjet printer, when printing a document (or image) inks of different colors are distributed on the paper in a specific pattern. It all started in this way: at Clemson University (years ago) have replaced printer inks for some "ink cells" alive. The ink cartridges were refilled with some cell solutions and software was rescheduled. The "paper" is a biodegradable gel, designed at the University of Washington, which solidifies to reach 32 ºC of temperature. Still need it much? for to be a reality with great performances. The main problem is that it is still unable to create an organ which circulates the blood, but it can print a tissue with thickness of a kidney in just 2 hours. The next step is to print the tiniest (capillaries) parts of an organ, just those that make it work (plasma with O2 and nutrients towards...↔▓↔...and CO2 which go into from...). If this is achieved would be very near the Eternity for human being.
