A bottle containing a mysterious 126-year-old note was recently found hidden away inside the wall of a building in Boston. A person living in the Back Bay near Commonwealth Avenue found the bottle tucked into a space between their fireplace flue and an interior wall. The note inside the bottle had the name “Tom Ford” scrawled on it, along with the phrase “6 on Shea.” It was dated Sept. 23, 1894. Some think the note may be a record of a bet on a sporting team. https://whdh.com/news/bottle-containing-126-year-old-note-found-hidden-inside-wall-of-boston-building/ .................................................................. #earth #science #archaeology #news

Researchers found that Sagittarius A, (the black hole near the center of the Milky Way), is 2,000 light-years closer to the earth. Furthermore, our solar system is traveling 510,000 mph. VERA’s measurements are thought to be more accurate than past ones because the group used more advanced technology and corrected for how the earth’s atmosphere blurred earlier measurements. These results can be used to estimate other astronomical parameters such as the distribution of dark matter and its density around the solar system, and could even help scientists predict how often we should see hypothetical dark matter particles, if they exist. https://www.livescience.com/milky-way-black-hole-closer-to-earth.html ........................................................ #space #science #nature #technology #news

Daily Earth and Sun Report 12.21.2020 Solar Wind: speed: 399.7 km/sec density: 6.2 protons/cm^3 Not much different from yesterday. The solar winds are in the low-normal; no solar flaring; and no eruptive filaments. Geomagnetic conditions are quiet. 5:57 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kYbjNC44lTw ................................................................................ #science #space #nature #education #news

I think it's interesting to note here that gravity itself is being re-hashed out again in parts of the scientific community. Honestly, its like they just can't make any of this work; probably because its 'not real'. Not in the way they think anyhow. Scientists have published research contending that a rival idea to the popular dark matter hypothesis more accurately predicts a galactic phenomenon that appears to defy the classic rules of gravity. For decades, we’ve measured more gravitational pull in space than we think we should have; that there’s not enough visible or known matter to account for it all. So, dark matter proponents theorize that most of the known universe is actually made of material that doesn’t interact with light, making it invisible and undetectable, but that this material accounts for much of the gravitational pull among galaxies. It has been the prevailing theory for nearly 50 years. Instead of attributing the excess gravitational pull to an unseen, undetectable dark matter, MOND suggests that gravity at low accelerations is stronger than would be predicted by a pure Newtonian understanding. MOND made a bold prediction: the internal motions of an object in the cosmos should not only depend on the mass of the object itself, but also the gravitational pull from all other masses in the universe—called “the external field effect”. https://thedaily.case.edu/unique-prediction-of-modified-gravity-challenges-dark-matter/ ................................................................................ #space #science #physics #nature #education
