    Actually I thought science is absolutely about absolutes, they are exactly what it deals in. Saying that things are this way or because of this and that's the end of it. That scientists are supposed to be sceptical and reject any kind of paranormal or supernatural explanation without even considering it. That's why I can't imagine how scientists can be religious. 

    I remember when I was a child, I saw a cartoon where a scientist says "I don't believe in fairy tales, only in scientific facts. That's what being a scientist is all about." I think that played a part in shaping my understanding of science.

    I've long supposed that somewhere out there, there's a panel of scientific minds that decide what is true or false and stamp them accordingly... Phrenology-false, evolution-true, and then they are the ones who authorize putting those truths in books and teaching them in school. I wanted to know what they had stamped this and other things that worry me.

    In my experience scientists, or at least scientifically minded people, are anything but open minded. My father was a scientist, he worked in a chemical co's lab, helped to set up laboratories across the country and in his spare time he had a hobby in astronomy and read any of the 4 science magazines he subscribed to. And he is completely inflexible in his beliefs, particularly when it came to science. Some theories he treats as gospel.

    I have talked to people about science here and on other sites about all the ideas and theories that bother me. Most, if not all of of them say they are true right away. that these are truths so self evident that they aren't even up for discussion.

    And then there are the people who make science documentaries who are always talking about things as if they are proven. On the tv show Nova, in the episode about multiverses, the presenter (I think it was Brian Greene) said...

    "Since matter can only be arranged in a finite number of ways in a finite space..."

    He doesn't start by saying "Theoretically there is.." "Hypothetically..." or "If it's true that..." No he just geos straight to "Since" like it's proven. And when people talk like that I can't help but assume they know it for a fact.

    I was pretty staggered, when I fond out that there are different types of satellites and microsatellites that are used for different purposes in environmental preservation area.
    For instance, there are types of satellites that [url=https://www.skyrora.com/blog/satellites]are satellite used[/url] for tracking rare species of animals to prevent them from being killed by poachers.


    Interesting, it seems you already have found examples of how space technology is assisting the environment, I am sure there will be more in the future.

  3. This is all governed by Newtonian physics(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Classical_mechanics) and can still be calculated easily using the laws of motion. The amount of force produced by the muscle does a predictable amount of movement of the arm or leg or whatever, the combination of billions of muscle fibers contracting or expanding using chemical energy from the mitochondria in the form of ATP created by the mitochondria supplied by blood in the form of complex organic molecules such as sugar or carbohydrates along with oxygen. There is nothing special about the organic body it still is governed by physics in a predictable way.

    Muscle Movement Process



    Newtonian Physics of kicking a ball





    I thought I would explain it in pictures to make you understand, which all could be explained in math but you wouldn't understand that and as pictures say 1000 words much longer, but basically in the simplest form, (Chemical Energy Of Total ATP Used) = (1/2)(Mass of foot) (Velocity of foot)^2  and  (Chemical Energy Of Total ATP Used) - (Kinetic Energy of foot) = 0

  4. The Effects of General and Special relativity could not be infinite or zero as discussed in the (https://www.physicsforums.com/threads/is-the-planck-length-the-smallest-length-possible.999993/) thread, which could be a mathematical artifact of relativity as pointed out and discussed by the members of the (https://www.physicsforums.com/) forums, however it is unclear whether a infinite length would be required for a Tipler Cylinder or  if space is infinitely divisible such that special relativity claims is possible in frames, either way this design should work in some fashion or another whether a finite or infinite length is required for CTC into the past.

    Can such space technology like or satellites or microsatellites make their investsments in preservation of the environment on Earth? For example, such project like Sentinel-6 satellite we can observe sea level and other stuff that can help scientists make particular operation in environmental preservation.

    I am sure some of the technology used for space can and will be used to help the environment of earth.
