The Olbers Conjecture ("Paradox"), Revisited

Authors: John Michael Williams
Comments: 10 pages

The Olbers conjecture, that under reasonable assumptions, light from the stars should sum at the Earth to make the sky bright at night, has been a subject of study since the early 19th century. It has been incorporated into some of modern cosmology. After confirming Olbers's reasoning analytically, we solve the problem using a new calculation modelled as a projecture in the form of an imaginary, constant-area star probe. We find that there are not enough of stars to make the sky bright at night.

From Kepler Problem to Skyrmions

Authors: Nicolae Mazilu
Comments: 15 pages

The classical treatment of the Kepler problem leaves room for the description of the space region of the central body by a hyperbolic geometry. If the correspondence between the empty space and the space filled with matter is taken to be a harmonic mapping, then the region of atomic nucleus, like the one of the Sun for the planetary system proper, is described by hyperbolic skyrmions. This fact makes possible the description of the nuclear matter within framework of general relativity. The classical "hedgehog" solution for skyrmions can then be classically interpreted in terms of the characterizations of intra-nuclear forces.

Grand Design, Intelligent Designer, or Simply God: Stephen Hawking and His Hoax

Authors: V. Christianto
Comments: 5 pages

There are a number of good reasons to say that big bang support evolution theory's idea of creation by pure statistical chance alone. And that is why: some people do think that big bang can happen out of nothing. That standpoint of view, albeit not new, are reiterated by stephen hawking from Cambridge, in his latest book: the grand design. Another middle-point of view, if you are believer of middle-viewpoint, is that there is a substantial amount of complexity which is irreducible in nature, sufficient enough to say that there must be the Grand Intelligent Designer, according to Behe and a host of other proponents of ID.
