The Wrath Of Khan

The Wrath of Khan is probably one of the best if not the best Star Trek movie but I do not want to start a holy war like Coke vs. Pepsi or Mac vs. PC. The reason why this movie is so good because it explores many themes such as revenge, an absentee father being introduced to his son and the question of terraforming a planet for human colonization. The main plot is focused around a device called the Geneses device which changes a planet and creates life within days on any planet.

In the beginning of the movie the have star ship looking for a planet that has no life on it. This brings up an interesting question what is life. Is it something that reproduces like crystals which forms the same pattern over and over, or like fire that consumes material and changes and gives of heat. Does the chemicals that are the precursors to life which have been found the cores of small meteorites.

Can you point life on any old planet in the universe, or is there certain places where life can survive after it is formed. One thing modern astronomers look for when they are looking for planets is how far away form the star and what type of star it is. If it is around a small cool star, the planets have to be closer to the planet has to be for liquid water to exist which is necessary for life as we know to thrive. If it is a larger hotter star it has to be further away for water not be gas. Also another consideration is the size of the planet. Smaller planets would not have the gravity to hold onto an atmosphere while larger planets like Jupiter sized planets would be mostly atmosphere with a no solid ground for life to live on. There is a chance that life could exist in the clouds but this just hypothetical at the moment. The larger planets might have moons that might be large enough for life to develop. Other considerations that might affect life is whether or not of the planet is geologically active. Earth is geologically active, materials are moved into the planet at where the seismic plates met and are released by volcanoes. This is important for substances for water and carbon dioxide. Mars on the other hand once was actice and is not any more. Mars does not hold on water or carbon so without active volcanoes has nothing to replace these substances. The moons of Jupiter and Saturn such as Europa, Enceladus and Titan might have what is called cyro-volcanoism which similar but ice replaces rock, This process might be useful in determining what is going under the surface of Europa and Enceladus where life might be. Titan actually has an atmosphere of carbon compounds instead of mostly nitrogen and oxygen here on Earth.
Other thing that might affect if there is life on a planet is that if the atmosphere blocks harmful parts of the electromagnetic spectrum. All stars emits light in all wavelengths and depending on the size and temperature of the star. They might emit light might be harmful for life.

Would a device like the geneses device exist in real life, probably not. I better way would be find a planet that match the Earth as much as possible Use things like plants and bacteria to change the atmosphere if need be and change the planet in a gradual way. <.p>

The Last Jedi

Filed under: Uncategorized — davidlpf @ 5:00 am

Whenever I see “A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…” it is a happy day even with Jar-Jar in it. This Saturday was no exception while viewing The Last Jedi. It begins with the resistance leaving its base with Star Destroyers in orbit and then a lone X-wing appears to deliver a message From the resistance leader Princess Leah. The leader of the First Order is called Hux who looks like he started shaving, this reflects the comparison to the Nazis who in the last days WWII were using younger and younger soldiers. He has a lot to learn more history especially recent history dealing with SkyWalkers. Such as your opponent spat in Vaders face. Later in the movie he tries to pull rank on Kylo Ren, there he has to remember this is Vaders grandson. Kylo is no Darth Vader tho no matter how big of a hissy fit he throws during battles but has grandfathers angry.
Rose is the only new character that probably will stick around to the other movies. She reminds Finn that you should not fight against what you hate but what you love. This was the Skywalkers undoing, all three of them, Anakin gave into the hate of slavery and that Jedi order for the code turning him int Darth Vader. Leah and Luke used their righteous hate of the empire and Vader, this just lead to decades of war that tore the Republic apart. There was no replacement for Han in this movie. BB8 stole a lot of scenes demonstrating that size matters not.
There are plenty of throwback to the original movies which highlights Lukes journey thru the force. In the beginning of the movie we find out he has cut himself from people and the force because he felt guilty over allowing Kylo to go the darkside. Later an old friend points out that failure is greatest teacher and that he should not have turned his back on the force and the galaxy. Young Skywalker does eventually help the resistance in an unique way.
There was a lot attention on the internet spen on the fate of one character because the actor who played this character has passed. There are several points were they bring her close but time after time they prove she is tougher than a Star Destroyer. The other character was Supreme Commander Snook who basically did some parlour tricks and that was that.
At the end of the movie the show what is what of the resistance being carried off in the Millennium Falcon in hyperspace. The resistance now lives in the hearts of people thru out the galaxy. Now the First Order should be afraid, very afraid.

story part whatever

Filed under: Uncategorized — davidlpf @ 12:32 pm

This is part of a story that may or may not be finished but has to post something


Remus and Sparta were twin planets that orbited around a common barycenter as they orbited what was called in the past a brown dwarf. The sub-star was called Rome. Rome was a dark almost brown red thru most of the body with a red strip at the equator with swirls of the bright red thru some of the body, Also from time to time a small body will fall into Rome and leave a red spot on the body for a short time. To the north of the star was mostly intergalactic space with a couple of globular clusters and to the south was the Orion spur of the milky galaxy. The system was set as a research base in the beginning as were all the settlements at the time. The two planets orbiting each other offered a unique situation to experiment on more efficient ways of entering an exiting hyperspace. Sparta eventually got a military base to protect against the chance of pirates in the area. Over the next hundred years the military governors took more and more range under their supervision, Eventually one of the governors decided to separate from rest of humanity and setup a military dictatorship.

The new Governor General of Canada

Filed under: Uncategorized — davidlpf @ 11:43 pm

The Governor General of Canada or GG is mostly nowadays a symbolic post. When Canada was first formed it was still ruled by the crown of England. They needed a representative to keep an eye on the young nation so they appointed a GG. Nowadays they recommended by the PM and the only real duty is to read the crown speech once a year or so. They mostly use there time is used to support some their favorite projects. Today not only a woman was appointed but also a former astronaut Julie Payette. Payette has been to space twice aboard the space shuttle totaling 25 days and served as the chief astronaut for the Canadian space agency. Maybe this GG will have a new view of the job that others haven’t.

Revolution in Astronomy

Filed under: Uncategorized — davidlpf @ 9:59 pm

This is a brief review of the Revolution in astronomy by Bahram Katirai in 2008.…JkHWl2B3d2pV1A

This book is a trying to rewrite the laws of physics, astronomy and mathematics to make universe make sense to them or their worldview. They are not the only ones, the first ones or the last ones. They try to explain away how stars and galaxies are actually just planets and they are a lot closer to us because astronomers are wrong. They simply do not try to explain the techniques astronomers use, or interpret them wrong either on propose or they simply do not understand them,

In the first chapter the author starts talking about the light collecting area of a telescope. One thing larger telescopes allow astronomers to see is objects that are smaller than what the human eye can see. This is called resolution, one of the stats that your cell phone producers use to sell the phones is how many megapixels the camera has. The more and more megapixels the smaller and smaller detail you see in the picture. The smaller the resolution a telescope can see you get more and more detail in image you get from the telescope. This comes in useful when you are measuring the distance to the stars using a method called parallex. This method is done by measuring the angle that is made when you observe an object from two different spots. The relation between the length of the line to the star and length of the line from the Earth to Sun is known which is 206265 so if the angle between is measure to be 1 sec the distance to the object is 206265 times that of Earth Sun relation, This distance between Earth and Sun is called an astronomical unit which is 1.49 *1011m. For a long time the distance was just expressed in terms of how many paallex seconds the object or parsecs because the distance between the arth and sun was unknown.

Another way astronomers measure the distance to stars is by measuring the Flux or the energy per meter that comes from the star. It was long way around to come up with this method. Firstly Hippachus came up with a scale on rating how bright a star was. It started at 1 for the brightest and went to 6 for the dimmest these are referred to as the visual magnitude of the star. In the 19th century when they thought the eye saw brightness on a logarithmic scale the difference between magnitudes became 2.512. Some objects actually had negative values such as the Sun which is at -26. Also the concept of an absolute magnitude came about, this what would be the magnitude if it was held a distance of 10 parsecs or 32.6 light years. In the twentieth century devices called photometers came about that could measure the flux directly. So we can compare the flux from where the star is compare it at 10 pc and we can figure out the distance to the star.


d is the distance in par secs, F10 is the flux at 10 parsecs,f is the measured flux of the star

The author tries to state that stars are planets that are just misunderstood. The look at a picture of Uranus and an image of a similar colored star and makes the assumption thar the star is just a planet. The main problem here is that astronomers now that stars are not made out of the same stuff as planets. The way they know this is that they m split the light from the star thru a prism. When you do this we will see a band of light that will start blue one side to re to the other, there is more light there but our eyes cannot perceive this light. If look more closely at this light we see black lines in band, Every atom or molecule with will produce there own characteristic pattern of lines under certain conditions. The pattern from the stars are a combination of the patterns from atoms and if cool enough molecules. So stars composition is easily demonstrated to be different than a stars.

They try to discuss away the change in Cepheid variables which change brightness over time. Cepheid are stars that are unstable because of changes going on in the core, they change brightness over a well known time. So if an astronomer so a star changes with a certain period they know the brightness of the star at its max and at its min so the can use this to find out how far away the star is. In this book the claim a Cepheid is just a planet spinning One side of the planet is redder than the other so it when it revolves around its axis it changes color. One thing the author seems to not understand is spectroscopy. When an object revolves the light will shift to blue on one edge that is moving towards the observer and redder on the edge that moves away from the observer. Cepheids change brightness as rotating So Cepheids are not just spinning objects that are just two different colors on either side.

In anther chapter the author tries to explain away galaxies as stars that giving off gas of hydrogen and molecules and forming planets. He looks at a few pretty pictures and sees a bright spot in the center and spirals coming off then some clumpy spots in the arms calling these planets. First off there are several types of galaxies they are, irregular galaxies that are clumpy masses of stars and gas, spirals which look like well spirals and ellipticals which are look like foot collections of stars and little gas. Astronomers used large telescopes and found many, many stars in these galaxies throughout the object. Also using cepheids they know these objects are in the order of millions and billions of light years away. Also it was found that if something emitting light moves away from the light, the spectrum will be shifted to the red end and if moves away from you light is shifted to the blue. Radar guns to determine if a car is speeding works under this principle. The radar gun sends out a pulse of light and is bounced back and the detector does some calculations and tells the cop whether or not to right you a ticket. In the middle of spiral galaxies like our own they have been measurements of the stars orbiting the core region are travelling at such a speed that the probably are super massive dead star called blackholes.

In chapter 12 the discuss the birth of planetary systems. Planetary systems are formed when the star is formed, the planets are formed out of the stuff that is blown off from star as it forms. In this chapter they show pictures of planetary nebulae. These objects are actually when a star like the sun is at the end of its life it will puff off the out layers of the star. These forms rings and sometimes will form other shapes as well. Then they jump to images of galaxies which are completely different because they have many stars in them.

In Chapter 13 they discuss how the sun is in the center of the milky way. If you go out in summer you will notice that there are more stars visible than in the winter months. This is because during the summer we are in the part of the orbit that looks towards the galaxy and in winter we a looking outwards into the lower density parts of the galaxy. (If you are in southern hemisphere the seasons would be reversed.)

This book is trying to refute modern astronomy by just looking at some pretty pictures contrary to what scientists do by measuring, modelling, and coming up with theories. This general technique is often used by individuals who have issues with what science has come up thru hard work and reasoning. There might be a few reasons for it either religious,or conflicts with other world views


Days end.
