Thanks again Cliff, your better than Google. I have” Atlas of the Universe” and, when I looked, it is in there, but I’ve got into the bad habit of just relying on the internet. I will have to do another search there though, to see if I can find something on the moon or satellite that is gaining angu...

Hi Cliff. Sorry for the delay, I’ve been doing battle with this darn computer again. With regard to the spokes query, after reading up on Saturn’s rings I now know the spokes are above the rings and rotating independently, so don’t indicate how the rings are rotating. They seem to be tied in with Sa...

Hi Cliff. Would you please read through my last post again. The moons are in gravitational orbits, and the gravitational affects on each other, is far stronger than the repulsive force of their static charge, which does not affect them. But this does not stop the static charge they carry from affect...

Hi. More developments. I’ve found the moons in Saturn’s rings do gain angular momentum from being, I presume, bombarded by the faster moving particles. And will eventually move out from the ring system. This is very strong evidence that the rings are not in any kind of gravitational orbit. The two m...

Thanks for that David. It may seem far removed from the problem of galaxies but I think understanding one will help in finding a solution to the other. I am talking about my solution of course! Though the published solutions are from impeccable sources, the lack of details and simple explanation ava...

Hi Cliff. I took a look at the latest information on Saturn’s rings, and I have to admit, it looks pretty convincing. I lived in hope that Maxwell might mention the possibility of static electric charge being involved but quite the reverse. He proves the rings do consist of particles in gravitationa...

Hi Cliff. Thanks for that. I didn’t know Maxwell had looked at the problem of Saturn’s rings. I will look it up on Google! I’m surprised they were trying to prove the rings are not solid. Perhaps they meant not moving as a solid body, or in other words, moving like a wheel. From the evidence of the ...

When I first started this thread I was planning to dive straight in with my nuts and bolts version of what is really happening with galaxies. Thanks to the intervention you, Cliff, Ian and Stella, I have discovered two facts which I feel re-enforces my Idea. Previously I thought Vera Rubin’s work wa...

I’m sorry Ian but I thought with your commitment to the Dark Matter idea you would have had a simple explanation of what is going on. Such as the simple explanation for Newtonian orbital dynamics which goes. If you fire a cannon ball horizontally across the ground with enough force, the curvature of...

Hi Deimos. I fully accept the usefullnes of quote but it should be used spareringly otherwise it can look like, I said, you said, I said, you said, which even if you are discusing sugar plum fairies can look like a fight to the death!
Thanks Neale.
Smiley face Maurice.

Hi Ian. I realised you favour the dark matter idea. What I am asking is how does it work. Is it just like ordinary matter except not visible? If so, how does it cause the galaxies to break the Newtonion and Keplarian rules of orbital dynamics?
All the best Maurice.

I suggest less use of quote. Especialy, quote on top of quote on top of quote. When I read/see this I feal angry and aggresive. Even when I am not taking any part in the thread. It is like being in a very fractious court room. So less use of quote and more use of emotions perhaps? All the best Mauri...

Hi Ian, There are many references to the “Fact” that stars are not flying off when they should be. When I google’d, Vera Rubin, one site that came up was, vera rubin biography from answeres .com. Scroll all the way down to “Discovered Dark Matter. Read through it and you will see. What was keeping t...

Hi Cliff. Thanks for the comments about Saturn’s spokes. The reason I mentioned them was to show the rings are rotating like a disc or a wheel, the inner parts with the same period as the outer. This indicates that the rings are not in normal gravitational free fall orbits. Incidentally, I believe t...
