42. Solar System - Celestial Mechanics
Presents ideas about the rotation of the sun and planets.
Solar System - Celestial Mechanics
Franz Heeke - Muenster / Germany A fluid in a glass rotates, when eccentrically shaken. My hypothesis: such "shaker effects" play an important role in celestial mechanics, driving and controlling the rotation of sun and planets. The mechanism of interaction is described in following Article 1. "Shaker effects" are most probably of influence also on our weather and climate. Eine Fluessigkeit in einem Glas rotiert, wenn sie exzentrisch geschwenkt wird. Meine Hypothese: "Schwenkeffekte" dieser Art spielen eine bedeutende Rolle in der Himmelsmechanik. Sie treiben und steuern die Rotation der Sonne und Planeten, und beeinflussen wahrscheinlich auch unser Klima. Die vermutete Wirkungsweise ist in deutscher Sprache im Artikel 2 beschrieben.

44. ACCREATION OF THE EARTH AND SOLAR SYSTEM: A New Cosmology Copyright 1999, Lawren
Introduces a new theory of creation of the Earth and solar system.
New evidence that the Earth is rapidly increasing in size and mass contradicts Laplace's Nebular Hypothesis of Earth's creation, now 200 years old. Accreation (creation by accretion) is presented here as a new concept of planetary creation to replace it.
Accreation (creation by accretion) is a byproduct of 35 years of research and study that proved Earth's diameter has expanded rapidly in the past ~200 Ma. In that relatively short period of geologic time all of today's oceans, and most of the water that now fills them, have been created by melting and expansion of Earth's core. (See
The Earth is increasing in size and mass by daily accretion of extraterrestrial meteorites and meteor dustadditional weight that is gravitationally focused on the planet's exact center, thereby generating compressive heat and thermal expansion of the core. (See diagram below)
Core expansion is the mechanism causing the Earth to expand, and the rate of expansion accelerates over time as the planet increases in mass by daily bombardment of THOUSANDS OF TONS of meteorites and meteor dust that also adds a thin layer of dust on the surfacewith a 75% chance of falling on some body of water. This is the primary source for the oceans' deep sediment layers that have accumulated over the past ~200 Ma as new ocean seafloors have been generated by volcanic magma extruded via the midocean ridges that now encircle the Earth.
The current philosophy of creation of the Earth and Solar System is based on two ancient but closely-related historical documents: (1) The story in Genesis that God created the heavens and earth in six days; and (2) Laplace's Nebular Hypothesis of creation of Earth and other planets of the Solar System that was published in 1796, a period in history when philosophical notions of Nature's wonders had to agree generally with the Bible's teachings.

Our solar system consists of a central Sun, which is orbited by nine planets (and their moons), an asteroid belt, many comets and meteors, plus gas and microscopic dust.
The Sun is a medium-sized star. It is orbited by the following (in order from the Sun): Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, the asteroid belt, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto. The first four planets (Mercury, Venus, the Earth, and Mars) are small, rocky planets. After the orbiting belt of small rocky/metallic asteroids are four gas giants (Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune). The ninth planet is Pluto, a small, rocky planet.
In our Solar System, which planet is closest to the Sun? Mercury

    Our solar system is an oasis of light, heat, and life in the cold reaches of the Milky Way Galaxy. It consists of a central star the Sun and its family of nine planets, more than 100 moons, millions of rocky asteroids, and billions of icy comets Recent discoveries prove that our solar system is not alone. Astronomers have discovered planets orbiting several other stars. But current technology cannot reveal Earth-like planets the planets that are most likely to harbor life . As far as we know, then, Earth is the galaxy's only inhabited planet. Sun
    The Sun formed from a nebula. At the end of its life, the Sun will balloon into a red giant, swallowing Mercury Venus , and possibly Earth . The red giant will then evolve into a white dwarf, surrounded by a planetary nebula. Explorations

    Planet Formation

      The Sun formed from a nebula
      The inner planets are mostly rock and metal
      The outer planets are mostly ice and gas
      Earth's Moon formed separately from the rest of the solar system
    The solar system was born about 4.5 billion years ago, when something disturbed and compressed a vast cloud of cold gas and dust the raw material of stars and planets. The disturbance may have been a collision with another cloud, or a shock wave from an exploding star. Whatever the cause, the cloud fragmented into smaller, denser pockets of matter, which collapsed inward under the pull of gravity. In perhaps 100,000 years, one of the pockets, called a nebula, condensed into a volume about the size of the present-day solar system. In the dense center of the nebula, a star formed our Sun
    The newborn Sun was still surrounded by its nebula, which was spread into a thin disk because

    Solar System
    v 1.4 This applet represents the solar system, including the four major moons of Jupiter and our own, and a couple of comets. The On/Off button starts and stops the applet. Because of differences of scale, the inner planets ( Mercury - Mars ) and the outer planets ( Jupiter - Pluto ) are on separate screens. To switch to and from the latter, press the In/Out button. To see/hide the orbits, use the Orbit button. The and buttons allow you to resize the display to convenient dimensions. For a little more excitement, pressing the Ship button will toggle the appearance of a pesky space ship. The planets, their orbits, and their velocities are approximately in scale with each other, but the planet scale is much larger than than the orbit scale, and the sun is not in scale with either. Thanks to Luis Fernandes for his orbit suggestion! The 2000 update modernizes the Java code without changing the operation of the applet. Eric Gans

    Million Solar Roofs The Million Solar Roofs Initiative is a unique public-private partnership, aimed at overcoming barriers to market entry for selected solar technologies. The goal of the Initiative is practical and market-driven: to facilitate the sale and installation of one million "solar roofs" by 2010. Eligible technologies include photovoltaics (PV) solar water heating transpired solar collectors solar space heating and cooling and pool heating Million Solar Roofs (MSR) is helping increase the market for solar energy. At the same time, the Initiative is offering consumers an affordable, clean-energy option, creating new U.S. high-technology jobs, and playing an important role in reducing emissions. The MSR Web site provides information and resources for those who want to participate in the partnership and for those who want to learn about how others are participating. For partnerships the site provides seminar and workshop listing, success stories, logos, graphics, and other outreach tools for the grassroots promotion of solar energy. The MSR partnerships are administered through the Department of Energy’s Regional Offices.
