Gravity Power


newtonThe genius of Isaac Newton, who in the 17th  century defined gravity and produced a universal law of gravitation laid down the foundations for scientists, theoretical physicists such as Einstein.

Gravity Power

Gravity is pervasive, it affects and influences us all on our planet, in our solar system  and in our universe.

einstein1Astronomy is a hobby/interest of mine I like to learn all about what happens in the cosmos and how our space probes/telescopes are unlocking secrets preciously hidden to us.   Below Ben Gilliland excellently explains how gravity helps  push back the frontiers of space

WE ARE USED TO THINKING OF SPACE FLIGHT as a struggle against gravity. After all, it takes vast, towering rockets filled with hundreds of tonnes of explosive liquids and gases just to give a light-aircraft-sized vehicle enough thrust to break free of the bonds of Earth’s gravity.

Even if you are lucky enough make it into space, there are still endless gravitational hurdles to overcome. Contrary to what Sir Isaac Newton believed, gravity isn’t caused by two massive objects pulling on one-another. Instead, gravity is a by-product of the dents and distortions made by massive objects in the fabric of the Universe. A truly massive object, like a planet, makes a pretty big dent and, when a less massive object, like a spacecraft, strays too close it finds itself ‘falling’ into that dent – it might look as if the spacecraft is being ‘pulled’ towards the planet, but really it is ‘falling’ towards it.

The Solar System is littered with these gravitational pitfalls – a satellite falls towards the Earth, the Earth falls towards the Sun and, in turn, the Sun falls towards the centre of the Milky Way. The only way to stop this fall from becoming a direct plunge is to move through space fast enough to ensure your momentum keeps you aloft.

You can think of the Sun’s gravity as being a little like a wine glass. If you drop an olive into the glass, it will fall straight to the bottom, but, if you spin the glass, you can give the olive enough momentum to roll around the sides without falling in (like a planet orbiting the Sun). Decrease the momentum and its orbit will fall closer; increase it and its orbit moves further away. If you continue to increase the speed, eventually the olive will move so fast that it will achieve ‘escape velocity’ and fly from the glass.

A spacecraft leaving Earth has been given enough momentum to escape Earth’s gravity wine glass, but, if it wants to travel into deep space, it has to find enough momentum to escape the Sun’s gravitational dent. Using rockets isn’t practical because they’d need so much heavy fuel it would be prohibitively expensive to just leave the Earth –so scientists came up with a clever trick called a ‘gravity assist’ manoeuvre,

Also known as the ‘slingshot’ manoeuvre, the technique was first used successfully 40 years ago this week, by Nasa’s Mariner 10 Mercury probe. Instead of struggling against the gravitational pull of the planets, during a gravity assist, a spacecraft uses a planet’s gravity (or a series of planets) to give it a speed boost. By falling towards a planet that is falling towards the Sun, a spacecraft can ‘steal’ enough momentum to travel against the Sun’s gravitational pull.

So you could say that spaceflight isn’t flying at all: it’s just falling, with style.

Peter Higgs and Francois Englert win Nobel physics prize

There you go Peter, your namesake has finally been awarded the Nobel Physics prize for the Higgs Boson.

My Peter has been asking me why Peter Higgs has not been Nobel prized yet. They’ve found the particle, what else would they want?!!! LOL He asked me this question almost every other day. We do talk a lot about science! 😉

Anyway, one scientist – a really great one, will probably feel a little bit miffed with the Nobel Prize received by Peter Higgs. Yes I am talking about you, Stephen Hawking, you said they’ll never find this God Particle! Not to worry, Stephen, your non-faith does not diminish your genius. After all didn’t good old Albert Einstein also said that Quantum Mechanics was a mumbo jumbo?!!!



Peter Higgs and Francois Englert win Nobel physics prize for Higgs boson research

Professor Peter Higgs has been awarded the Nobel prize in physics for predicting the existence of the Higgs boson or ‘God particle’.

The British scientist shared the award with Belgium’s Francois Englert for their theoretical work about the particle that is fundamental to explaining why elementary matter has mass.

‘I am overwhelmed to receive this award and thank the Royal Swedish Academy,’ said Prof Higgs said in a statement released by the University of Edinburgh.

‘I would also like to congratulate all those who have contributed to the discovery of this new particle and to thank my family, friends and colleagues for their support.

‘I hope this recognition of fundamental science will help raise awareness of the value of blue-sky research.’

The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences said in a statement: ‘The awarded theory is a central part of the Standard Model of particle physics that describes how the world is constructed.

‘According to the Standard Model, everything, from flowers and people to stars and planets, consists of just a few building blocks: matter particles.’

The two scientists had been favourites to share the $1.25million (£780,000) prize after the elementary particle’s existence was confirmed at the European nuclear research facility in Geneva, Switzerland, last year.

Prime minister David Cameron tweeted saying: ‘Congratulations to Britain’s Professor Peter Higgs, who is sharing this year’s #NobelPrize for Physics.’

Scotland’s first minister Alex Salmond also congratulated Prof Higgs.

He said: ‘Today, the Higgs boson, which carries his name, is a scientific discovery which is renowned the world over.

‘This richly deserved honour not only highlights the quality of research carried out in Scotland, but also how science inspires us to look for answers to fundamental questions about life and the universe.’

Scientists had searched for the elusive ‘God particle’ for decades when its existence was finally confirmed.

Nobel prizes tend to go to ideas that stand the test of time and last year’s breakthrough was too recent to be considered for the 2012 award.

Englert and Higgs both theorised about the existence of the particle in the 1960s although Englert was reportedly first.


The Amazing Story of British Science

The British have a remarkable talent for keeping calm, even when there is no crisis.

– Franklin F. Jones


From the 1700s Britain, this small group of islands was and still is a leader in science and engineering. Surely Sir Isaac Newton must be regarded as the greatest scientist that ever lived. He formulated the laws or motion and gravity, proved that sun light was not pure white but made up of colour and corpuscular(tiny particles of matter)when he produced a spectrum via two prisms and isolated one colour. He invented the reflecting telescope and for mathematics he invented calculus still a valuable mathematic tool today. His discoveries about energy gravity and motion laid the ground for Einstein.

Below is an article about an excellent new BBC TV series charting the successes and discoveries made by British scientists and engineers.

The Amazing Story of British Science

Britons Sir Isaac Newton, Isambard Kingdom Brunel and Sir Tim Berners-Lee all changed the world through their discoveries and inventions

Science Britannica 
Professor Brian Cox
Scientist and presenter

The British Isles are home to just one percent of the world’s population and yet our small collection of rocks poking out of the north Atlantic has thrown up world beaters in virtually every field of human endeavour.

Nowhere is this more obvious than in science and engineering. Edward Jenner came up with vaccines, Sir Frank Whittle ushered in the jet age and Sir Tim Berners-Lee laid the foundations of the world wide web for the Internet. Sir Isaac Newton, Robert Boyle, Charles Darwin, Michael Faraday, George Stephenson, James Watt, Isambard Kingdom Brunel (engineer), Francis Crick ( co discoverer of DNA)… the list is gloriously long.  We can now add Peter Higgs,who proposed the so called ‘God particle’ Higgs Bosun a field that holds particles together, which if if did not exist , sub atomic particles would never had formed into atoms and ultilmately us! The Higgs Bosun has been tentatively discovered by the Large Hadron Collider (LHC)

What is it about Britain that allowed so many great minds to emerge and flourish?

This is a very important question to ask, because science and engineering are not only part of our past – the future of our economy depends to an ever-increasing extent on our continued excellence in scientific discovery and high-tech manufacturing and engineering.

The roots of our success can be traced back many centuries. Oxford and Cambridge Universities were formed over 800 years ago.

They paved the way for the world’s oldest scientific institution, The Royal Society, formed in 1660 by a group including Sir Christopher Wren, professor of astronomy and architect of St Paul’s Cathedral in London.

Science Heroes

 Robert Boyle Boyle 1627 – 1691 is one of  founders of modern chemistry and one of the pioneers of modern experimental scientific method which Britain gave to the world.  He is best known for Boyles Law  which describes the inversely proportional relationship between the absolute pressure and volume of a gas, if the temperature is kept constant within a closed sytem.

Sir Isaac Newton (1642-1727) was a brilliant physicist and mathematician who is considered a founding father of science.

Charles Darwin (1809 – 1882) was a naturalist and geologist who came up with the world-changing theory of evolution.

Isambard Kingdom Brunel (1806-1859) was an inventor and engineer who designed some of the UK’s most famous tunnels, bridges, railway lines and ships

Sir Frank Whittle (1907 – 1996) was a daredevil test pilot who is credited with inventing the turbo jet engine

Sir Tim Berners-Lee (1955 – ) is the inventor of the world wide web

Scientist Rosalind Franklin’s photograph’s of X Ray diffraction of DNA confirmed it’s double helix structure

Any theory or idea about the world should be tested and if it disagrees with observations, then it is wrong.

Even today, that’s radical, because it means that the opinions of important and powerful people are worthless if they conflict with reality. So central is this idea to science that it is enshrined in The Royal Society’s motto: “Take nobody’s word for it”.

Shortly after The Royal Society was formed, Sir Isaac Newton deployed this approach in his great work The Principia, which contains his law of gravity and the foundations of what we now call classical mechanics – the tools you need to work out the forces on bridges and buildings, calculate paths of artillery shells and the stresses on aircraft wings. This was arguably the first work of modern physics.

This has become known as the scientific method, and its power can be seen in some unexpected places. During the filming of Science Britannica, I met Capt Jerry Roberts who worked at Bletchley Park during the Second World War.

Bletchley intercepted enemy messages and the captain and his colleagues were given the job of decoding them. He told me the story of his colleague, Bill Tutte, who worked on the ‘Tunny” code used by the Nazi high command to send orders to generals in the field.

Bill spent most of his time staring into space, but after just a few months, with awesome mathematical acumen he cracked the code.

In an age before computers, he did it using mathematics, logic and pencil and paper, aided by a single mistake by a German telegraph operator who sent a message twice. In the opinion of many, Tutte’s achievement was the greatest single intellectual achievement of the 20th Century, shortening the war by years and saving millions of lives on both sides.

This is what happens when genius is aided by the careful, scientific approach pioneered by Newton and others at The Royal Society. Capt Roberts and his colleagues at Bletchley are, in my view, heroes in every sense of the word.

 Bletchley Park was Britain’s main decryption establishment during World War II.

The Buckinghamshire compound is famous as the place where wartime codebreakers cracked the German Enigma code
Codebreaking machines Colossus and Bombe were the forerunners of modern computers. Mathematician Alan Turing helped create the Bombe
Historians estimate that breakthroughs at Bletchley shortened the war by two years
Bletchley Park’s computing  was so innovative
Alan Turing’s work built the foundations of computer science,programming etc. He is regarded as a true genius and founder of modern computing.

Another such genius was Nobel Prize winning phycisist Paul Dirac He was regarded by his friends and colleagues as unusual in character. Albert Einstein said of him “This balancing on the dizzying path between genius and madness is awful”  Among other discoveries, he formulated the Dirac Equation, which  predicted the existence of antimatter.

Despite its tremendous success, scientists have occasionally had a difficult relationship with the wider public. Frankenstein – the ultimate ‘scientist out of control’, has become a short-hand for things we fear.

A particularly colourful example can be found in the grim tale of George Forster, convicted of the double murder of his wife and daughter in 1803 and duly hanged.

This being the 19th Century, nobody was concerned about the hanging itself but rather illogically, the fate of Forster’s corpse caused a public outcry. It was taken directly to a nearby lecture theatre and used to demonstrate the effect of electricity on the human body.

The corpse twitched and jerked and even ‘opened an eye’ as an electric current was applied. There were reports of fainting and a particularly sensitive audience member died of shock – a wonderfully Georgian thing to do. The scientist – a visiting Italian called Giovanni Aldini – was forced to leave the country, when in fact his motives were absolutely sound. He was trying to resuscitate people using electricity.

Far from being a dangerous lunatic, he was ahead of his time. Nowadays thousands of lives are saved as hearts are regularly re-started using electrical pulses delivered by defibrillators.

Aldini’s controversial experiments were performed for a particular purpose, but not all science is carried out with a goal in mind.

Mary Shelley soon after wrote the classic gothic story Frankenstein, a cautionary tale of science out of control.

In the 19th Century, John Tyndall decided to work out why the vivid red and purple colours appeared when the sun is low, and why, for the rest of the time, the sky is blue.

He concluded that the colours of the sky are produced because light bounces off dust and water particles in the air. Blue light is more likely to bounce around than red, and so it is only when the sun is low and the light travels through more of the dust-filled air that the red light is bounced around to produce a sunset.

Tyndall was half right – we now know that it is mainly the air molecules themselves that scatter the light – but this didn’t really matter. Tyndall’s romantic curiosity led to a far more important discovery.

He decided to produce “pure” air with no particles in it, to see if the colours vanished, and he discovered that samples of meat didn’t rot in it. Here was evidence that infection and decay are caused by germs in the air – which Tyndall had inadvertently removed during his purification process. The discovery ultimately transformed the way that doctors dealt with infection and contamination.

Countless millions of lives were saved, because one curious scientist wanted to find out why the sky is blue. Today, the curiosity driven exploration of nature is still known as “blue skies research”.

Science has truly revolutionised our world. It is the basis of our economy and the foundation of our future. We must value our great heritage and continue to invest in education and science to ensure that we never lose our position as the best place in the world to do science.

Iconic Photography

There are photos that are sometimes so amazing that they are so thrilling. I am not talking really about how brilliant the photographic techniques, I am more concerned on what or who is on the photograph.

There are people in history who are so brilliant and iconic that somehow they appear out of this world. You really do not get a proper sense of their time and their being. I don’t know if I am making any sense but anyway here are some photos that I am talking about.


George Bernard Shaw on the left, Hillaire Belloc in the middle and G. K. Chesterton on the right.  Three giants of literature.  How amazing is that to see these three in a photo?!!!

bank 1 Two  photos where the world’s  greatest goalkeeper at the time Gordon Banks  denied the then  world’s greatest footballer/forward, Pele from scoring against England  in the  1970 World Cup. Pele headed the ball perfectly towards  the bottom corner of the goal, he even turned away from the goalmouth to raise his arm in a victory salute, not seen Gordon hurl himself across the goalmouth and punch the ball away quite amazing reflexes, Pele, the crowd  and millions watching the game on TV(including my husband Peter),  were  amazed & astounded!  Gordon Banks has become my husband footballing hero and has got his autograph which is a valued memento.

This event became so iconic that Gordon Banks complained that it was not the only goal he has ever saved in his career. LOL.

Pele to this day is still amazed that he was denied that goal.


Apollo 11
How atmospheric is this photo. R&R for the three stalwarts of space travel.  Buzz Aldrin on the left, Neil Armstrong in the middle and Michael Collins on the right. Don’t want to be gushing but OMG, these men travelled to the moon and back.  Amah..zinggggg!  These men boldly went, where no man had gone before!!!


This is a photo of Buzz Aldrin on the moon which is poster perfect.

Getting Old

Believe Me

Five-minute immersion exercise in trivia and history

Wit, Rhetoric and Wisdom of

Albert Einstein Billy Graham Douglas Mac Arthur
Photos from YAHOO



Delray Beach, Fl

An article on Evangelist Billy Graham noted that after many times of politely refusing an invitation from the city leaders in Charlotte, North Carolina wanting to honor him as its famous citizen, the widely traveled man of God finally consented to show up despite afflicted by Parkinson’ disease and was 90 years old. He donned a new suit.

After nice words were said, the reverend went to the rostrum not only thanking for the invitation but also to share the wisdom of getting old.

It was not evangelical talk as some were expecting but instead Billy Graham talked about Dr. Einstein and his sharp honest wit. The famous scientist who was then connected with the Princeton University was traveling on train. He was seen twice or more times checking the pocket of his vest and his suit searching for the ticket and still could not find it. The conductor caught up with him ready for punching his ticket and waited. So polite and understanding the conductor did not want to bother him any longer said, ‘Dr. Einstein, I know who you are. We all know who you are. I’m sure you bought a ticket. Don’t worry about it.’ Then he went to the next passenger.

Einstein graciously nodded in appreciation. When Einstein was still searching for his ticket, the conductor cannot help but has to go back to the old man begging a last appeal, “Don’t worry about the ticket Dr. Einstein. I know who you are. No problem. Just forget the ticket as you don’t need it. I believed you bought one.”’

The noted physicist, known for his “Theory of Relativity” gave a quick glance and a message to the conductor: “Young man, I always knew who I am.. But what I don’t know is where I’m going!”

After a good laugh from the audience, Billy Graham called his listeners to look at the new suit he was wearing.

‘Have a good look at this suit I’m wearing?” Billy intoned his listeners “It’s a brand new suit. You see my children, and my grandchildren thought that just because I am getting that old I am getting careless with the way I look. As I don’t want to disappoint them I went out and bought this new suit intended for this special gathering today and looking forward to use it again for one more occasion.”

“By now”, Graham continued, “you should know what that occasion is? This is the suit I will be wearing when they bury me. And when the news reached you that I am dead, I don’t want you to remember NOT just this new suit, but what I want you remember, that I know who I am and I know where I’m going!”

Well, Douglas Mac Arthur, other than a genius in military tactics and strategy is also remembered by the sound bites and rhetoric he is notoriously famous for. His “I SHALL RETURN” is good as Julius Caesar’s VENI VIDI VICI” that author William Manchester likes to portray him a modern-day American Caesar.

In his FAREWELL ADDRESS to the cadets at West point in 1962 the general began with humor to tickle his audience: “As I was leaving the hotel this morning, a doorman asked me, “Where are you bound for, General?” and when I replied, ” West Point,” he remarked, “Beautiful place, have you ever been there before?”

As a recap of his military career using the US Military Academy as the site, where he started his brilliant army life, Mac Arthur came up with a memorable ending: “In my dreams I hear again the crash of guns, the rattle of musketry, the strange, mournful mutter of the battlefield. But in the evening of my memory I come back to West Point. Always there echoes and re-echoes: Duty, Honor, Country”.

“Today marks my final roll call with you. But I want you to know that when I cross the river, my last conscious thoughts will be of the Corps, and the Corps, and the Corps.

I bid you farewell.”

For four years, in his stint at the US Military Academy in West Point, New York, Douglas Mac Arthur’s mother lived in a hotel overlooking the Academy, just to be close to her son. Starting from the time Douglas entered as a plebe until he graduated finishing as valedictorian!
