Internal Heat Production in Hot Jupiter Exo-Planets, Thermonuclear Ignition of Dark Galaxies, and the Basis for Galactic Luminous Star Distributions

Authors: J. Marvin Herndon

Geophysical and Astrophysical implications stemming from the discovery of nuclear fission just seventy years ago are only now becoming appreciated. The author's contributions are reviewed as background for his presentation here of fundamental, new concepts related to internal heat production in exo-planets, thermonuclear nuclear ignition of dark galaxies, and a basis for understanding the varied and heretofore inexplicable luminous star distributions observed in galaxies.
