UK’s fledgling edible insect sector in jeopardy after Brexit "With their minimal environmental footprint and excellent nutritional profile, insects are seen as a more sustainable form of protein than conventional meat and fish." I miss the times when man set foot on the moon! It actually ...

but last word is not said on this topic, i see some other angles to this too..the Sagnac debate has been going on for more than 110 years now!

Re: "Unified Revolution" new book by Espen Haug

 A review of the likely photon mass u find for example here A survey of existing and proposed classical and quantum approaches to the photon mass In my theory the most fundamental of all masses is simply the collision of two photons (building blocks of all we call mass). It is measured to be \(1.17\...

Re: "Unified Revolution" new book by Espen Haug

The measured mass of the photon is very close to what has been predicted by series of researchers, it is also extremely far off, because the photon mass is always observational time window dependent, unlike for example the mass of an electron that not is observational time dependent as long as obser...

" being that light hasn’t and simply can’t be measured in regards to mass " The mass of a photon is the Planck mass (actually half ) and I have measured it, and will do more experiments soon to measure it even simpler when the container with more of my ordered observational equipment arriv...

will look into it " But how do you than propose to capture the bending of light by massive objects " The Soldner solution was non relativistic Newton with also minimal insight in what mass truly was, it gave 1/2 of GR. Einstein derived  similar for Newton (1911?), also non-relativistic. Ot...

 I stopped having students (even if my teaching was top ranked by the students the last year I gave a course)! I am a Professor not a teacher! When the student is ready the teacher will appear, no one said the Professor would appear. A Professor should mostly think and spend time in the park or on a...

Re: "Unified Revolution" new book by Espen Haug

The Friedmann derivation is indeed introductory physics today. I am happy to see if someone have derived it also with relativistic mass as I have done here, second derivation. Einstein, Wheeler, Adler etc. where or are all allergic to relativistic mass, this is well documented in literature. Lorentz...
