comment What happens when half of an orbiting object's matter is annihilated?
I think you've made a mistake in your final paragraph. 1. Isn't it true that the kinetic energy in A's orbit would be equal the kinetic energy in B's wobble (equal and opposite reaction)? I realize the motion of B's wobble would be negligible compared to A's orbital motion, but the difference in motion should be exactly commensurate with the ratio of matter between the two objects, no? 2. Removing the matter from object A would result in removal of acceleration of gravity as well as kinetic energy of the motion, right?

comment Why can't electromagnetic radiation from magnets be used for apparent perpetual motion?
@celtschk - thanks for the explanation. I appreciate you sharing your knowledge.

Meant to say "N facing upstream against..."

@Ron - so if you have a finite energy output and it lasts forever... that's finite? What about a candle that burns forever. -1 on all your questions :)

Would you mind commenting on the new answer and on my reply to it?

Imagine a row of permanent magnets, 1,000,000 miles long, each's N facing downstream in the line, and then you accelerate 1 magnet with its S facing upstream against the N magnets. It's on a track and locked from turning. Couldn't you accelerate the magnet down track at a certain speed SP and have it remain at speed SP until the end of the line (assuming you set up everything just right and there was low friction)

comment Physical -> Chemical -> Nuclear -> [what comes next]
@dmckee - en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OPERA_experiment states that OPERA was a collaboration between CERN themselves, and 1 other agency. At this point, I'll leave you with a suggestion: Do some research before further posturing.

@dmckee - Ha, if you'd read it, you'd have know that OPERA was the name of the experiment, by CERN, not some other agency - public.web.cern.ch/public/en/spotlight/SpotlightCNGS-en.html

@dmckee - AdamRedwine - My seemingly cynical comments are indented to be thought provoking. Science is about questioning what we know, not assuming we know everything. I defer to CERN's recent "discoveries", again, and the reason I ask for a proof that can be directly witnessed by my 5 senses is because when our senses provide extraneous and/or erroneous data we can use interpersonal communication (as a control) to rule it out as anomalous (e.g., the case of the floating objects after a stroke). How can we determine anomalous behavior in tools which rely on data without controls?

@AdamRedwine - You trust your brain more than your nervous system? If memory serves me, your brain is kind of the core of your nervous system.

comment Physical -> Chemical -> Nuclear -> [what comes next]
@AdamRedwine - Yeah, just like Cern examined faster than light particles, or Higgs Boson? And, then... realized they didn't. You see, there is a degree of separation between anything and everything, but if the only degree of separation is a microscope and your own nervous system, one can more confidently conclude that one has "examined" something :)

(in my last comment, I'm attempting to suggest that or ask whether E=mc2 need not having anything to do with atoms, specifically, meaning that the potential nuclear yield of a given portion of U235 might not be representative of the amount of energy contained therein)
