Polaris is a particular star. It is almost exactly over the North Pole. This position makes this star perfect to do some calculation in relation to the Earth.
From Tesla, Maxwell, and many others we all have learned that light moves through a medium called ether.
A wave that requires a dense medium to propagate is called “elastic” or “mechanic”, because it moves through an elastic or mechanic medium.
I will, in the future, analyze some experiments scientists have performed on light: they all prove the Earth is not moving in the universe. To understand them you have to know something more about waves behavior. The experiments I want to consider are the following:
- Michelson-Morley experiment;
- Michelson-Gale experiment;
- Sagnac experiment;
- Airy experiment.
The major parts of them are light interference experiments. In this article I will consider The Michelson Morley experiment; I will explain it and we will see how the formulas behind this experiment can be explained in a very simple way when we consider the Earth being immovable.
Surfing the net you often happen to notice images of smoke columns getting out from volcanos and raising up to great altitudes. This is a phenomenon by many considered to be a clear evidence the Earth is not spinning. Many people could get the same impression in relation with high waterfalls: the fact that water falls on a straight line and doesn’t bend would be a clear consequence of the Earth being stationary and not spinning around its axis.
Powerful images, aren’t they? But could these phenomena show a clear evidences that the Earth is not spinning? Let’s make some consideration. Read more
What is Coriolis acceleration? This is a phisical phenomenon happening to an object moving in a rectilinear way on a rotating surface.
Look at the image: in the first picture the ball is moving over a rectilinear line on a stationary platform. The ball doesn’t resent of any lateral acceleration. When the platform starts rotating, the ball starts bending its trajectory and the result will prove to be a non rectilinear movement. This side acceleration is kown as Coriolis acceleration. It is an outstanding phenomenon that can be useful to prove that the Earth is not moving. Read more
