586 Million Year Cycle in Geology Matches Galactic Super-Cluster Spacings

586 Million Year Cycle in Geology Matches Galactic Super-Cluster Spacings

The longest geological cycle identified is described as about 600 million years ... (more)

The longest geological cycle identified is described as about 600 million years in "Megacycles", the proceedings of a geological conference, Edited by G Williams. However Prof. S. Afanasiev of Moscow has determined the cycle very accurately to be 586.24 million years using his Nanocycles Method. It so happens that cosmologists, Broadhurst, T.J., Ellis, R.S., Koo, D.C. & Szalay (Nature 343, p 726) have observed regular mega-walls of galaxies at spacings that they describe as 128 Mpc/h, which based on the latest Hubble constant values would correspond to 588 million light years. Some cosmologists have suggested that the regularity might result from standing waves. Standing waves in space of wavelength 586 million light years would oscillate in 586 million years. In addition, if there are present harmonics of these waves as both the geological cycles and the additional peaks in the galaxy survey indicate, then powerfully energetic events would recur on Earth at these intervals. This agreement on the wave sizes actually allows a much more accurate Hubble constant to be determined from Afanasiev's accurate cycle period. (less)

This classroom activity will show students that there is a lot we don't know about science, for example life throughout the universe. It will hopefully encourage students to question what we know and don't know, and exploration and study of the unknown. (less)

Introduces the object that contains almost all of the mass in the universe, the atomic nucleus. Antimatter, beta rays, fission and fusion, the structure of the atomic nucleus, how elements on the earth were produced, how we use the nucleus in every day life, and the effects of radiation in the environment are among the topics. The site includes nearly a dozen experiments that can be done in chemistry and physics classes, along with A Teacher's Guide to the Nuclear Science and Technology Wall Chart. (less)

Worksheet on circuits that looks at the AND logic gate. Students are required to mark the current flow to show the possible combinations of high and low inputs and high or low output. They must draw up a truth table and relate each line of the truth table to a complete circuit. A set of circuits with current flow marked is also given as a 'solution'. (less)
