Big Bertha Thing spider (Image JPG 11K)Cosmic Ray Series
Extract from Introductory Chapter;-
The "Spider tops," which are frequently sold in the streets of London, consist of a heavy little disc mounted on a spindle (Fig. XIV.). When the disc has been set spinning a small curved piece of metal is placed to touch the toe, and at once begins to slide round it, first the side (a) in the figure, and then the side (b), the motion continuing backwards and forwards till the top comes to rest. The fact is that the toe is magnetic, and this being the case it is easy to see that the rolling of the toe on the side of the metal produces the motion.
Big Bertha Thing fact
Anything but a fact, changes the face of twentieth century science. 1. No iron moons and planetary cores. 2. No red shift measure of speed. 3. No Patrick Moore star at 95% the speed of light. 4. Muons arrive on earth. 5. Relativity is like an imaginary number; useful but not real. 6. Einstein-Haas gives a field strength 1/10000th the electric field. 7. Wave particle duality is a field effect. 8. Schroedinger is an approximation.
Who has the wit to check the fact?
