Omnès Revisited

Authors: Jeremy Dunning-Davies
Comments: 6 pages, this note has been submitted for consideration by the Hadronic Journal

Attention is drawn to a newly suggested modification to the matter/antimatter theory advanced by Omnès in 1969. The new suggestion is dependent on the existence of supermassive black holes and is an attempt to invalidate the major objections to that earlier version of the theory. Here it is noted that many of the results derived apply equally well if the massive body involved is a Michell dark body. Mention is also made of the alternative theory advanced in 2006 by Santilli.

Redeployment Options for the International Space Station

Authors: Gary V. Stephenson
Comments: 90 pages

With the assumption that the current mission of the International Space Station (ISS) will draw to a close by 2020, redeployment options are explored and contrasted for ISS components in the post-2020 timeframe. Low Earth Orbit (LEO) redeployment options explored include a depot assembly facility and a refueling facility. Beyond LEO redeployment options explored include an assembly and refueling facility at the Earth-Moon L1 Lagrange point, a solar observing and / or energy collection facility at the Earth-Sun L1 Lagrange point, an astronomical observation facility at the Earth-Sun L2 Lagrange point, a lunar orbiting facility, and a Martian orbiting facility. The cost of boosting ISS components to new orbits is considered as part of the study of these latter options, as is any retrofit or modification of components required by these new missions. Logistics requirements are also included in the cost of each option. All architectural options are analyzed using Living Systems Theory [Miller, 1978] and the Hatley-Pirbhai context diagram template. Technical risk and maturity is analyzed, and a parametric cost model is developed. Cost benefit analyses are performed for each of the selected redeployment missions using Pugh matrix and quality functional deployment (QFD) methodologies for an overall recommendation based on the currently enunciated goals as described by the 2009 Augustine Commission on human space flight (HSF).

A Cantorian Superfluid Vortex and the Quantization of Planetary Motion

Authors: V. Christianto
Comments: 41 pages

This article suggests a preliminary version of a Cantorian superfluid vortex hypothesis as a plausible model of nonlinear cosmology. Though some parts of the proposed theory resemble several elements of what have been proposed by Consoli (2000, 2002), Gibson (1999), Nottale (1996, 1997, 2001, 2002a), and Winterberg (2002b), it seems such a Cantorian superfluid vortex model instead of superfluid or vortex theory alone has never been proposed before. Implications of the proposed theory will be discussed subsequently, including prediction of some new outer planets in solar system beyond Pluto orbit. Therefore further observational data is recommended to falsify or verify these predictions. If the proposed hypothesis corresponds to the observed facts, then it could be used to solve certain unsolved problems, such as gravitation instability, clustering, vorticity and void formation in galaxies, and the distribution of planet orbits both in solar system and also exoplanets.
