Good post, nice to read!
Please, refer to the subject in my OP. It's about the use of Planck's spectral formula for thermal radiation within
a black body cavity (100% absorptivity of thermal energy).
What I question is the claim (NASA, ESA) that CBR perfectly fit the spectral values of Planck's formula using
frequency as variable, peaking at 160 GHz, assuming that the Universe behaves as a black body cavity.
Doing this, they equated what happens at a graphite cavity having a volume of 2,000 cm^3 with what happens
at the volume of the observable universe (8.7x10^69 Km^3). And this, besides violating Kirchoff's postulate, is
an utter nonsense (for me).
Penzias-Wilson measurements were made at a frequencies around 4.5 Ghz, which is probably close to the range
at which you conducted your on-ship measurements. But neither them, nor you did scan the entire spectrum, did you?
It is sad for me that, being a fact that science don't have a better formula to use than a 120 years old one (valid only at
a very restricted enviroment), the results are being published as if the verification of Planck's formulae at the entire
Universe is a breakthrough discovery. I think that this is false, misguiding for the general public and for autosatisfaction
of the people involved.
It's scary to register "things that happens out there" and not know what is it. But, trying to grab to something known here,
even WHEN IT'S NOT TRUE, is more scarier, because it is a sample of how far "the community" is willing to collude in
order to have peace of mind and keep getting public funds. Not to mention the fact that the CBR radiation is the single
more important support for the big bang theory.
I'd prefer that other means were used instead of black body cavity.
And regarding the term "conspiracy", with all the negative sides that it carries is far
from my thoughts. The meaning is (Google): "a secret plan by a group to do
something unlawful or harmful".
I prefer collusion: "secret or illegal cooperation in order to deceive others."
The world actually with collusion. My best example is the financial world and the
QE of money to hide economical depression. Or Big Pharma and statins, etc.
Plus, if you read my former posts on this thread, I consider IMPOSSIBLE to rescue
background noise right behind Milky Way radiation. Impossible.
It's similar to use algorithms to find the location of a given stellar object that is behind the
radiating edge of the Sun, by filtering the Sun's light at those places.
If such an impossible task were possible, we could be testing General Relativity any day,
any time, instead of waiting the screening of the Moon to measure light bending by gravity.
And this isn't happening, is it?
So, my original question stands firmly: Why Planck's formula is being used to validate the CBR?
There is a hidden agenda behind this. Not conspiracy, just collusion.
