Ben about the gravitational potential, gravitational energy density, global collaborations

Subject: Found the derivation of the gravitational energy density in a workable form Ben, Most humans live in little bubbles and are only vaguely aware of the whole.  So global policies, issues and opportunities are made up by many billions of people acting independently.  Or for “smaller” policies, issues and opportunities – millions, hundreds of

China should create permanent stations in Moon orbit now and StarLink for the Moon, “First city ready for humans”

DongFang Hour:  China’s Plan for a CREWED Lunar Landing in 2029 at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I-KrMfIkDdg I would be much more impressed if they would send a permanent station to Moon orbit now, have some crew stay in rotations of a few months. Send rovers and instruments down to the surface operated by crew in orbit. Get Elon Musk

Tweet to Ryan French to link his pretty solar movies to their source data

Dr. Ryan French @RyanJFrench On the edge of the Sun, active region 13386 continues to put on a show! It released an M5 #SolarFlare earlier today (which would have been higher if not partially-occulted), blasting away a high altitude filament from the loop system! #astronomy #spaceweather Ryan, Could you carefully post links to your source

University of Maine, Climate Change Institute, Climate Reanalyzer

https://climatereanalyzer.org/research_tools/monthly_correl/ I like your Climate Reanalyzer plots and downloads. I see codes in the sheets for the models, but I am not that familiar with all the abbreviations and acronyms. And it is not clear to me how 5 billion people using the Internet now can view, let alone interact with the models in meaningful

Richard Chats with OpenAI GPT 4.0 about permanent synchronous stations over the sun, creating new challenges

I want observing stations near the sun to monitor it closely and continuously. Sunlight so close, might as well gather some into “atomic fuel”. Richard Collins, The Internet Foundation Richard: The earth has a specific distance and velocity for “geosynchronous” satellites. What is the radius and velocity of a solar synchronous orbit for a satellite
