  1. Honest, good post.I have given up trying to convince anyone because there are to few with any reasoning powers.
  2. A hydrogen atom falling into a black hole should have the velocity of c when it reaches the event horizon. Will it's relative mass be infinite?
  3. Swan, here you talk like you understand but in other threads you sometimes don't.
  4. Your right, I don't understand you.
  5. We are not allowed to discuss reasons for things that science can't explain.
  6. Any change of direction must include acceleration. Come on Swan, have I done something to you?
  7. Where does thermal radiation come from? I could have sworn it was from the vibration of atoms and molecules.
  8. Would you mind pointing to your source. I must have missed it in my own studies.
  9. The electrons and protons are not neutral and they are moving. Sure, but what if they are accelerating in the same direction?
  10. The atoms in your body are not stationary.
  11. No evidence but your right everything is in motion wr to everything else ie, everything must radiate. An interesting experiment, two objects of equal mass under equal acceleration. Can one object detect radiation from the other?
  12. You can't radiate in one frame and not in another. I agree, I'm saying that any motion wr to another will produce radiation even after acceleration.
  13. I'm not sure that I wouldn't radiate. The radiation would have wavelengths so long they would be undetectable.. Jackson's is what made me think about it.and his drawing of an accelerated charged particle.
  14. Within a millenium there won't be any humans to make the trip.
  15. What is really going on when we accelerate a charged particle? A charged particle has an electromagnetic field that is always propagating away from it at c so when we accelerate it that field must start propagating away from it in a new position in space. The difference in those two positions could be construed as a photon. Something like the perpendicular part of a square wave with the angle of the perpendicular part being determined by how much acceleration is used to accelerate the charged particle. That angle being the wavelength.
