Sun more of a puzzle than we (so far) thought.

  • A decade’s worth of telescope observations of the sun have revealed a startling mystery: Gamma rays, the highest frequency waves of light, radiate from our nearest star seven times more abundantly than expected. Stranger still, despite this extreme excess of gamma rays overall, a narrow bandwidth of frequencies is curiously absent.


    The surplus light, the gap in the spectrum, and other surprises about the solar gamma-ray signal potentially point to unknown features of the sun’s magnetic field, or more exotic physics.


    “It’s amazing that we were so spectacularly wrong about something we should understand really well: the sun,” said Brian Fields, a particle astrophysicist at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign.


    The unexpected signal has emerged in data from the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope, a NASA observatory that scans the sky from its outpost in low-Earth orbit. As more Fermi data have accrued, revealing the spectrum of gamma rays coming from the sun in ever-greater detail, the puzzles have only proliferated.

  • I think the guy works for the dod so much of the hypothesis seems to be missing "things" but I found the video interesting to study.

  • Several months ago, our friend ALHFORS drew our attention to the company KEPLER AEROSPACE

    Not exactly "Cold Fusion", but it does a very interesting work:

  • The 'missing' gamma rays from the Sun's spectrum could be evidence that low energy nuclear reactions are occurring there in tandem with conventional fusion reactions. Are they in the same range as X-rays observed in our ECALOX X-ray spectra? This could have arisen by conventional physicist's adherence to E=mc squared rather than the true equation E = mc to the power n where n can range from - infinity to +infinity, mathematically speaking! - infinity is probabilistically impossible like negative time, only the present and future can be considered, but we have infinite energy release in the Sun and our typical Hydrogen Bomb. Proof of the pudding will be coming soon once we test out my new prototype, Alan. :) :) :)
