Double Stars Mysterious Connection

Charged objects like protons and electrons are connected by electromagnetism.  Massive objects like planets and our Sun are connected by gravity.  From falling balls to an electric shock, gravity and electromagnetism are the forces we experience daily.

Thanks to the work of Karl Heinz and Uwe Homann of Canada, the brightest star in the sky, Sirius, is receiving renewed attention as an unconventional companion star candidate. Please take a look at our new page on this. We have tried to show the data in an easy to understand way.

The precession of the equinox is observed as the stars moving across the sky at the rate of about 50 arc seconds per year, relative to the equinox. Conventional theory holds that this phenomenon is due to the gravity of the sun and moon acting upon the oblate spheroid of the earth causing the axis to wobble (the lunisolar theory). The alternative explanation advanced by the Binary Research Institute is that most of the observable is due to solar system motion, causing a reorientation of the earth relative to the fixed stars as the solar system gradually curves through space (the binary theory or model). We find the binary model better explains acceleration of the precession rate, better predicts changes in the rate, answers a number of solar system problems and has none of the paradoxes or inconsistencies associated with lunisolar precession theory.2

The Research section includes a summary of our basic work investigating the mechanics of precession, describes some of the problems with current theory and gives data to show that solar system motion is a better explanation for the observable known as the precession of the equinox. If you move your mouse over the word “Research” you will find this work broken into five further sections entitled: Introduction, Evidence, Calculations, Finding It and Papers and Articles. We invite you to browse.

The following paper and poster were presented in the Geodesy Group of the Dec. 2009 AGU.
Predicting Changes in Earth Orientation - Dynamic Versus Static Solar System Model

Long term predictions of changes in the earth’s orientation to VLBI sources have been historically unreliable. The IAU has found that current methods are “not consistent with dynamical theory”. Part of the problem appears to be that measurements of the precession observable are made to points outside the moving frame of the solar system yet do not account for motion of the solar system relative to those reference points. We have found that by separating the motions of the earth within the local frame (of the solar system), from the motion of the frame relative to external reference points (outside the moving frame), long term measurements of the earth’s changing orientation may be simplified and predicted with a higher degree of accuracy.

Looking Ahead

Since launching the Binary Research Institute website a few years ago, we have continued to research the possibility that our Sun might be part of a binary star system. This includes investigating a number of issues.

Asymmetrical Shape of Heliosphere Raises Questions

Ever since the Voyager 2 data confirmed the nonsymmetrical shape of the solar system scientists have pondered its cause (i). In summary, the edge of the heliosphere (the place where the solar wind slows to sub sonic speeds) appears to be 1.2 billion kilometers shorter on the south side of the solar system than it is on the roughly northern edge of the planetary plane (where Voyager 1 exited approximately a year earlier). This indicates the heliosphere is not a sphere at all but a bullet shape. More data is required to determine the exact shape in all directions. [More...]

Gravity Probe B – Results to Date – Does It Show Solar System Motion?

It was recently reported by NewScientist that Gravity Probe B received an “F” from the U.S. Government and the project would receive no more funding.

http://space.newscientist.com/article/dn13938-gravity-probe-b-scores-f-in-nasa-review.html


I don’t know whether to laugh or cry. Here’s why:

Our government (you and me) spent over $850 million on GP-B, a joint NASA and Stanford project. This was far more than the original budget. In theory the project was simple; put a telescope into space, attach it to some gyros and point it at a nearby guide star. The motion picked up by the gyros was supposed to confirm Einstein’s theory of relativity (that the mass of the earth bends space time) and reveal the exact amount of the relativistic effect.

Response to The Precession Dialogues - BAUT Forum post

Several posters on the Bad Astronomy and Universe Today Forum (BAUT) have expressed doubts about the non-conventional “binary model” of precession. The main critic is a poster that goes by the name of “Celestial Mechanic” (CM) who has called the binary model “rubbish, pure and simple”. While this is not the most constructive way to frame a scientific discussion it does express the current attitude of most astronomers when it comes to non-conventional theories of precession. It also hints at why several seemingly unrelated solar system problems (such as the sun’s lack of angular momentum relative to the planets) have gone unresolved. [More...]

NASA Baffled by Unexplained Force Acting on Space Probes

John Anderson, retired astrophysicist from Caltech JPL has noticed something
unusual:

"There is something very strange going on with spacecraft motions. We have no convincing
explanation for either the Pioneer anomaly or the flyby anomaly." The fact this effect seems most evident with flybys most asymmetrical with respect to Earth's equator "suggests that the anomaly is related to Earth's rotation," Anderson said.

One possible explanation might be that solar system is accelerating through space.

More scientists need a companion star - or at least a very big planet!
