Foreground Milky Way Dust Filaments In Galaxy Photographs

This report documents a study of Milky Way dust filaments that appear in photographs of external galaxies. The technique used in this investigation is the use of software photograph processing tools called effects filters. The software used here is the On One Photo Perfect Effects 9. This allows the adjustment of digital photos to enhance aspects of the photo to permit the investigation of foreground dust in galaxy photographs. The thesis of this study is that the classification and interpretation of galaxy photographs is significantly influenced by foreground dust filaments that appear in projection against the bright background of external galaxies.

So one has to contemplate, why is the question being asked at all?

Supermassive Black Holes More Fiction Than Scientific Fact

The BBC Horizon program, Supermassive Black Holes, is an example of how science documentaries have turned science into science fiction, by combining a little science fact with fictional writing to produce speculative science fiction. Unfortunately, much of modern mainstream science is infected with this type of speculative fiction. We can lay the blame for this on the modern scientific method, whi…

The Delusion Of Particle Fever

Particle Fever is a science documentary film that unmasks the deception behind modern particle physics in the course of making a documentary about the Large Hadron Collider or LHC and the claimed discovery of the Higgs Boson.  The film takes us into the world of particle physics, its people, its machines and its human self deceptions, in a way never see…
