<i>Astronomers have combined two powerful astronomical assets, the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) and NASA's Hubble Space Telescope, to identify 19 new "gravitationally lensed" galaxies. Among these 19, they have found eight new so-called "Einstein rings," which are perhaps the most elegant manifestation of the lensing phenomenon. Only three such rings had previously been seen in visible light.</i><br /><br />Full story here: http://www.physorg.com/news8283.html<br /> <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> <strong><font color="#3366ff">Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will to strive, to seek, to find and not to yeild.</font> - <font color="#3366ff"><em>Tennyson</em></font></strong> </div>

Gravitational Lensing Used As Excuse Again: "Over 99% of the matter in the universe is in the form of plasma—aggregates of matter that contain charged particles. The charged particles move in response to electromagnetic forces, which can overpower gravity billions of times over. Through collisions, the charged particles carry neutral particles along with them. A very few charged particles can shape large amounts of matter into characteristic forms such as filaments, arcs and toruses. The electric currents flowing through plasma can heat it to high temperatures and accelerate particles to x-ray and cosmic-ray energies."<br /><br />The whole notion of "gravitational lensing" is as contrived as that about "black holes." <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> </div>

Well, I wonder who this is...<img src="/images/icons/mad.gif" /> <img src="/images/icons/rolleyes.gif" /> <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> <strong><font color="#3366ff">Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will to strive, to seek, to find and not to yeild.</font> - <font color="#3366ff"><em>Tennyson</em></font></strong> </div>

As of now, 18 total posts, 10 links to the same site. Interesting.... <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> <strong><font color="#3366ff">Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will to strive, to seek, to find and not to yeild.</font> - <font color="#3366ff"><em>Tennyson</em></font></strong> </div>

OH, NO!! I've been found out! <img src="/images/icons/laugh.gif" /> <br /><br />BTW, that just happens to be one of many sites that I favor. It has a convenient layout that makes it easy to look into other subjects via short, plain-language essays that all work together to create a new vision of the universe.<br /><br />I sense that you feel threatened. Why? <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> </div>

<font color="yellow">that just happens to be one of many sites that I favor</font><br /><br />Inserting the link and quoting it 10 times in 18 posts is a bit more than "favoring" it.<br /><br /><font color="yellow">I sense that you feel threatened. </font><br /><br />Not at all - we've discussed the contents of that site on SDC a number of times. If you want to discuss the electric universe, then start a thread on the subject and stop trying to insert the stuff into other threads. <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> <strong><font color="#3366ff">Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will to strive, to seek, to find and not to yeild.</font> - <font color="#3366ff"><em>Tennyson</em></font></strong> </div>
