Different Types of Propulsion

Authors: Jeffrey Joseph Wolynski
Comments: 2 Pages.

A short list from memory that will be clarified and refined in the future that outlines different types of propulsion people use in the galaxy. The purpose of this paper is to take the edge off the ridicule factor still prevalent in today's society concerning extraterrestrial visitation and their interaction with the militaries and civilian populations of the world. The denial of their visitation and interaction of Earthlings by the scientific communities of the world can be ignored, their opinion is worthless. It is only the facts that matter, and the facts point to Earth being visited by people from other star systems. The facts also point to their craft being far more advanced than our own, and they utilize nuclear propulsion in a way we haven't figured out how to do yet.

Analysis of Ground Facilities for Detecting Electromagnetic Signals from Extraterrestrial Civilizations

Authors: Zhi Cheng
Comments: 10 Pages. 7 Figures. Including Russian abstract

This article analyzes the existing facilities for exploring ground radio telescopes for extraterrestrial civilizations. Although many extraterrestrial civilization exploration programs have been implemented, judging from the existing radio telescope facilities, these facilities have not been aligned with the area where advanced extraterrestrial civilizations are located. This is also the reason why nothing has been obtained for a long time in the past. Based on my previous work, this article proposes areas where advanced extraterrestrial civilizations may exist, and points out that according to the current orbital information of the solar system in the Milky Way and the location of the Earth's orbit, the radio telescope installed in the North Pole of the Earth is the best location to receive advanced extraterrestrial civilization signals. Therefore, the Greenland radio telescope on the earth is currently the best choice for receiving advanced extraterrestrial civilization signals. It is suggested that existing extraterrestrial exploration projects such as SETI@home should pool all resources to analyze the data obtained by the Greenland Radio Telescope.

Developing Compatible Metrics for Distinctive Forms of Energy

Authors: Julian R Silverman
Comments: 10 Pages.

The development of practical metrics allows for a more accurate and precise measurement and comparison of different products and processes. Clearly defining these measures not only allows for the standardized comparison of raw materials or finished products through life cycle assessments, but also important considerations regarding the sustainability of material transformations and energy consumption. Though we know there exist distinctive forms of energy, from examples such as mechanical to electrical and even dark energy, the derived unit of Joule or an equivalent unit is used to quantify phenomenon that are inherently incompatible with the Joule’s composite base units (eg. charge and kilogram). Herein we explore a set of derived units to quantify the extensive properties of energy not relating to the motion of masses and develop relations equating changes in mass, charge, and distance over time to chemical, gravitational, ionization, electrical, and magnetic energy. Using natural constants to form limits for mass and charge flow akin to the speed of light it is possible to come up with simple relations to both accurately describe these forms of energy and more precisely relate them. This may serve to not only allow for a more clear understanding of different forms of energy and work, but also serve to help those interested in quantifying and minimizing energy inputs by clearly delineating between forms of energy.

The Illuminated Area of the Moon Exceeds Half Its Surface

Authors: Wenceslao Segura González
Comments: 7 Pages.

We show that the extent of the illuminated area of the Moon is greater than 50% of its surface; that is, a part of the lunar hemisphere opposite the Sun is illuminated, which occurs because the Sun is larger than the Moon.
