Welcome to our two hour eight minute Open Lines discussion. Our first call was from Joe Bakhos who had previously sent me his paper on gravity (it has been uploaded to the blog). He was invited to call the show today. Joe's call dominated the entire program though he was only on with us for about the first 45 minutes. Our discussion with Joe was complex and detailed as Joe presented his paper and his case for his hypothesis about gravity, dark matter, dark energy and related topics. I suggest you read the paper or at least have it available when listening to the show. Several listeners sent me emails during the discussion requesting the paper which I sent to them so they could have it to call and talk to Joe. Joe spent around 45 minutes with us but even after he left, listeners were still asking questions. If you would like me to get Joe back for a full Space Show program when many of you will have had a chance to review his work, please let me know. Post thumbs up or down on the blog or feel free to email me. One of the topics discussed in some detail as a result of Joe's call and his paper was the issue of dark matter. For sure you don't want to miss his analysis of both dark matter and dark energy.
As listener Ft. Worth John has become a go to advisor on physics and related topics for The Space Show, I sent Joe's paper to him (John Hunt) for his thoughts on it. John called the program and had an interesting exchange with Joe which you will certainly want to hear. While John had lots to say, one thing he talked about was figuring out the experiment(s) to test the hypothesis. If you have thoughts on this for Joe's hypothesis, we want to hear from you. All in all, I think John was on the skeptical side but listen and come up with your own conclusion. Let us know your thoughts by posting on the blog.
Ryan called later on to talk about popularizing space with the general public. He framed his thoughts from having listened to many Space Show archived programs. Ryan thought more could be done but I provided him with my take of why it can be very challenging to popularize space and get support from the broader general public. After Ryan's call, while getting ready to sign off, once again riding in on a white horse at the last second to extend the show, Tim from Huntsville called. Tim is rapidly earning a reputation as our last minute caller which is fine by me. This time Tim got me going on one of my rants on the subject of people having good ideas and not going places or doing anything with the good ideas. This is something I talk about frequently and Tim motivated me to talk about it so off I went connecting this topic to why I do The Space Show. Simply stated, I want people to go the extra mile and make the good ideas come alive. Listen to my several minute long commentary. Post your comments and thoughts on it using our blog. By the way, earlier in the show, we had a listener bring up the news about continents on Venus. Check it out at www.windows2universe.org/?page=/venus/interior/V_continents.html.
