It is the end of the Dark Era of Cosmology. The author’s model is awesome and presents a challenge to our presumed knowledge.
Using ‘Plain Old physics’ ;-) he reveals a complete different History of the Universe.
Space expansion? Big Bang? Dark Energy? Dark Matter? No thanks.
I read it in chronological order with google chrome, and reader, directly from Portuguese language (Chrome can translate to you).
To ease the entry I present here an ad-hoc translation of the first and the last posts (Creative Commons BY-NC Attribution-NonCommercial).
First post (Presentation):
Relativity and beyond. . ., unheard
theories, fantastic ideas ,give birth
to a new understanding of the
Universe. Light rays of dawn will
shine reflections of Future in the
reborn eyes of four friends.
Mainly using the format of a
conversation between four characters,
I will try to present in language
accessible to people without
scientific training the essentials of
the Theoryof Special Relativity and
continue the line of thought of a
specific group of scientists,including
Poincaré, Einstein, Lorentz and
This path is different from that
initiated by Minkowsky that led to the
current Physics. The seemingly small
initial differences lead to concepts
as diverse as the universe of
Copernicus was different from that of
There is also a profound difference in
the methodological process. While the
actual physics follows the simple
methodology of Ptolemy (developing
mathematical models on top of the
observed data as obtained) here follow
the methodology of Galileo (creating
logically related models).
Let me introduce you the characters:
George and Ann are two characters in
mystery, because George has the
knowledge of the Another Physics, Anna
has a role that transcends this blog.
Mario is a scientist with broad range
of knowledge and open-minded to
examine the ideas of George. Louise
represents people whose education does
not belong to science and technology.
last post (abstract of a foundational paper to be ;-)
Generalizing Relativity Principle to Comoving Coordinates allows the
fitting of cosmic data with no dark
matter or dark energy The standard
space expansion model considers two
kinds of coordinates: the atomic
coordinates, where the validity of the
Relativity Principle is established,
having the length unit defined from
atomic properties, and the comoving
coordinates, where space expansion is
null. In atomic coordinates Space
expands, in comoving ones Matter
decreases, evanesces. In this work,
as there is no observational evidence
indicating that one of these
coordinate systems should be any
better at supporting physical laws, we
postulate that Relativity Principle
must hold in both systems. From this
postulate we derive a model that fits
both cosmic and local data with the
same physical laws, needing no new
parameters besides Hubble constant,
namely no dark matter or dark energy.
We also extend the generalization of
the Relativity Principle to a more
general, new kind of coordinates - the
Field coordinates – of which the
atomic and the comoving systems are
just two particular cases.
The generalization of the Relativity Principle presented here
does not conflict with established
theories, namely Special or General
Relativity. It is presented a
prediction that can be experimentally
tested: an acceleration component in
the rotation of isolated bodies. New
results are obtained, such as the
long-term evolution of Earth
