Is speed of light SLOWER than we think?
Posted on Monday, June 30, 2014 @ 01:13:43 EDT by vlad

General Einstein claimed speed of light in a vacuum is 186,282 miles per second. But James Franson from Maryland University believes it is slower than this. In 1987, light particles of a supernova arrived 4.7 hours later than expected. Dr James Franson suggests this may be because of 'vacuum polarisation'. This, he claims, had a gradual, but significant, impact on speed of photons. If he is correct, it means scientists have to recalculate everything from our distance to the sun to some of the most distant objects in other galaxies.

The study was conducted by Baltimore-based physicist, James Franson, who looked at why light particles of supernova SN 1987A arrived 4.7 hours later than expected.

The University of Maryland physicist believes the delay could have been because the light was in fact slowed as it travelled due to something known as 'vacuum polarisation'. During this phenomenon, photons break down to something known as ‘positrons’ and electrons for a split second. before combining together again.

When they split, quantum mechanics creates a gravitational potential between the pair of ‘virtual’ particles. Dr Franson argues that the process might have a gradual impact on the speed of the photon, meaning that over 168,000 light years, the photons may have suffered a near five-hour delay.

If the physicist is correct, it means scientists have to recalculate everything from our distance to the sun to some of the most distant objects seen in other galaxies. Dr Franson’s paper has been submitted to the New Journal of Physics and is currently undergoing peer review.

Space Energy Extraction using the New Electromagnetic Principle (Score: 1)

A related one also from Jerry's great site: Space Energy Extraction using the New Electromagnetic Principle :

There is no energy crisis in the world. Instead, there is amnesia in the minds of the scientists and the physicists.

Where is this Energy coming from?

High energy physics has discovered that the space is filled with neutrinos comprising 90% of the total energy in the universe.

Neutrinos could be traveling faster than the speed of light, meaning they are tachyons.

They are weakly coupled to electric charges.

The kinetic energy of these neutrinos are unlimited and can be tapped into a usable form...

Article via Future Energy e-News (Dec 2016) [campaign.r20.constantcontact.com]: Albert Einstein might be known for a great many things, but even the layman might be familiar with at least one thing: E = mc2, the formula for mass-energy equivalence. However, a critical part of that formula might soon be debunked. According to Einstein's physics, light has, does, and always will travel at a constant speed. Some physicists and cosmologists have begun challenging that observation, and may just have gotten closer to proving that the venerable scientist may have been wrong...
