The latest Basement Roundtable is posted, The Evolution of Cosmic Radiation!

It was an excellent follow-up to the previous roundtable, The KT Extinction, taking the discussion into the domain of cosmic radiation.

The angry denials of the reductionist academics can already be heard echoing through the halls of their ivory towers.

Launched on July 18th, the new Russian space telescope, Spektre R, viewing in the radio range of the spectrum, is a powerful demonstration of Russia's future orientation, and why humanity's future lies in the 3-powers alliance of Russia, China, and the USA, as Lyndon LaRouche is emphasizing.

Cody Jones and I attended two House of Representatives hearings this week. One, a full Science and Technology committee hearing on the future of human spaceflight, and two, a joint hearing between Investigations and Oversight, and Energy and Environment, on the state of the NASA/NOAA polar satellite program. The most accurate description of the overall state of things, based on these hearings, is that the US is a complete mess. Unless Obama is removed before the end of his term, and Glass-Steagall is immediately implemented, it is my opinion that there will never again be an American manned space mission, and that we will see a sharp massive increase in death due to severe weather in the very near next few years.

Now that hurricane season has passed its peak, NOAA's National Hurricane Service reports that it was indeed a strange one. Usually, about half the tropical storms become hurricanes. This year, there was a very-above-average number of named tropical storms (14 so far, and another one's forming, named Ophelia), but very below average in number of hurricanes. Only three of these storms attained hurricane-force winds. This is the lowest ratio of hurricanes to tropical storms since around 1850! Without denigrating the damage done by several of these storms, why was this season both very active, and also very weak?

Evidence that the Earth has dramatically grown in size over the past few hundred million years? A presentation of the clearest cases of intrinsic redshift found in galaxies? Proof of “structured water” forming what might be considered a new state of matter?

The Basement Project began in 2006 as a core team of individuals tasked with the study of Kepler's New Astronomy, laying the scientific foundations for an expanded study of the LaRouche-Riemann Science of Physical Economics. Now, that team has expanded both in number, and in areas of research, probing various elements and aspects of the Science of Physical Economy, and delivering in depth reports, videos, and writings for the shaping of economic policy.
