Hubble 25: A Quarter-Century of Discovery with the Hubble Space Telescope

Now 25 years into its trailblazing mission, Hubble's greatest accomplishments to date include helping to uncover black holes in the centers of galaxies, observing changes on planets in our solar system, investigating the atmospheres of planets around stars other than the Sun, seeing disks that are possibly forming new solar systems, and hunting down nascent galaxies in the very early universe. Astronomers have also used Hubble to follow up on the work done almost a century ago by the telescope's namesake, the astronomer Edwin Hubble, whose observations of galaxies revealed that the universe was expanding. Observing with the Hubble telescope, astronomers have refined their calculation for the universe's expansion rate and discovered the existence of a force called dark energy, which is causing the universe to expand faster and faster as time goes on.

The Hubble Space Telescope is an instrument of science -- one of the most productive in history. Thousands of astronomers from around the world have used Hubble to explore nearly every facet of the universe, publishing more than 11,000 scientific papers in the process. Still, the magnificent images Hubble takes have proven time and again their power to capture the hearts and minds of scientists and non-scientists alike. The majestic scenes fire the imagination and inspire awe for the astonishing vastness of the cosmos and all the wonders it contains.

To celebrate Hubble's 25th anniversary, this book presents 25 of the most remarkable images Hubble has acquired so far. They are ordered according to distance from Earth, highlighting Hubble's great range, from observing planets in our own solar system to the stars and galaxies born when the universe was still young.

Each chapter in this book introduces one of Hubble's images and points out some of the features that Hubble's exceptional vision reveals. It also describes a sample of the related scientific research or discoveries achieved with Hubble.

99 pages. Over one hundred spectacular color photos, diagrams and charts.

The First Periodic Table for Elementary Particles

This is a significant breakthrough in elementary particle physics. This short ebook presents the complete table of 1024 elementary particles based on the QAM model as the first Periodic Table for Elementary Particles. A 1024-QAM table is presented that graphically displays how all elementary particles are related, similar to the Standard Periodic Table in chemistry. Interestingly, the math that describes QAM is simple and elegant. If we line up all of the particle masses in order, we find there are a number of "gaps." These are called the mass gaps, and they line up perfectly with 1024-QAM. QAM is very simple - it is the math used for wifi signals, and it perfectly fits the sequence of elementary particle masses. Numerous other particles are predicted using 1024-QAM. This paper provides compelling evidence that our universe is blinking at a high frequency (1.1 THz).

The Discovery of Parallel Universes

This short paper presents information into technology that has been used to move between two parallel universes. Described here are the possible technology characteristics of glowing orbs or balls of light, which have been photographed and filmed, all over the world and often near crop circles. By utilizing the blinking frequency of our universe, it is possible to move between universes. These orbs have been reported as glowing and/or pulsing and some appear to be 12 to 14 inches in diameter. The precise value for the blinking frequency of our universe, the Lighthouse Frequency, is estimated at 1.1 THz. Each reader must comprehend that our universe is literally blinking off and on, more than 1 trillion times every second.

For those unconvinced that our universe is blinking, please read "1024 Elementary Particles," which provides compelling mathematical evidence.

Supermassive Ancient Galaxies (Trillion Theory Book 7)

Trillion Theory (the new theory by founder/theorist/author Ed Lukowich) is summarized in this book. This new Trillion Theory depicts its estimated ancient trillion year age and origin for our cosmos. Delving deep into humongous galaxies, TT examines the work done by the galaxy builders, which TT purports to be black holes. At the hub of each and every galaxy is a Supermassive black hole which controls all of the millions of solar systems within the galaxy, along with the millions of black holes doing their dutiful tasks of recycling the solar systems for each new 15 billion-year generation. TT says, 'That is why it is near impossible to spot a sun older than 13-14 billion years.; and why astronomers have been mistaken in estimating the age of our cosmos at only 13.7 billion years when viewing the current generation crop of suns and solar systems.' TT states that an ancient Supermassive black hole at the hub of galaxy may have started building its galaxy as far back as 800 billion years in the trillion-year cosmos. While the Supermassive black hole is ancient, its occupant solar systems die and spawn new solar systems once their star reaches the 10-14 billion year age and goes supernova. Our cosmos is akin to a forest which recycles old trees and spawns the next generation of trees. Quadrillions of black holes, varying in a multitude of sizes, are both the builders and the controllers of the solar systems and the galaxies of our immense cosmos. TT says, 'We indeed have plenty to discover and prove about our universe. Trillion Theory is pointing out the direction to be taken.'

Mathematical Solution Unifying the Four Fundamental Forces in Nature

This technical note describes a simple mathematical-geometrical solution for unifying the four fundamental forces in nature. The fundamental forces of gravitation, electromagnetism, strong force, and the weak force are actually different aspects of the same force. In general, the relationship between the four forces can be described using a form of the equation for Analog Quadrature Amplitude Modulation (Analog-QAM). This equation form is developed utilizing the concept of a "blinking" or discrete physical universe. The approach to develop the solution is described by minimizing the number of available dimensions (zero), which is in contrast to numerous efforts (String theory, Mtheory, Quantum gravity) that attempt to maximize the number of dimensions under consideration. An Electrical Universe (EU) model is presented that provides sufficient conditions for a solution. This mathematical solution should be tested against experimental data to confirm its validity, however it is noted that, "discrete-time" forces will be measured differently than "time-averaged" forces in a laboratory environment. Confirmation of the theory is suggested through small, discrete-time interval measurements of the gravitational acceleration force and the electromagnetic force, where they will be seen to vary continuously, and yet also retain a "time-averaged" value. Each reader must comprehend that our universe literally blinks off and on, more than 1 trillion times every second.

For those unconvinced that our universe is blinking, please read "1024 Elementary Particles," which provides compelling mathematical evidence.

Anomalous Magnetic Moment: Source and Explanation

This short technical paper explains the anomalous magnetic moment for all elementary particles and composite particles (such as the proton). The special case regarding the Muon anomaly is addressed. It also presents a summary of the issues in accurately measuring the magnetic dipole moment for elementary particles. The explanation provided involves simple math and probabilities. It is not complex, such as Yang-Mills and related theories. This analysis utilizes the 1024-QAM model, with 4 charges x 4 spins for 16 probabilities for each elementary particle. In summary, there is no anomaly. The measurement of the magnetic moment is a time-averaged value for 16 different particle probabilities. Areas for further research are suggested.
