    The Frost Line of the Solar System

    If I were a judge in a court, I would dismiss this response as being "frivolous and without merit".. (a favorite retort of judges in this country, if you've ever had the distinct pleasure). The point being, you haven't addressed the issue at hand (which is the legal definition of the word...

    The Frost Line of the Solar System

    Is there evidence of this, or are we just guessing? Again, is there evidence of this anywhere, or is it all just random conjecture? I'm not talking sides one way or another.. but I'm just commenting on what seems to me to be a very interesting double-standard in "science".. It would...

    The Frost Line of the Solar System

    Soooo... what exactly has stopped Jupiter or Saturn from "wandering inwards" in our Solar System? I thought planets weren't supposed to just "wander around" like that.. :-)

    The Frost Line of the Solar System

    I haven't been following this line of research terribly closely, but aren't all these planets that astronomers are finding orbiting stars outside our Solar System always (a) Jupiter-sized planets; and (b) always orbiting the parent star in at a radius something like where Mercury is in our Solar...

    Galactic Center

    Thanks, the second article in particular is informative.. Still, I don't think anyone has done spectroscopy on the IR signals coming from this source, have they?

    Galactic Center

    I have in mind Sgr A*, the compact, extremely massive object at the center of the galaxy emitting X-rays and radio waves and which some astronomers believe might be a "black hole"..

    Galactic Center

    I understand that the massive object at the center of the galaxy is visible in both radio waves and X-rays, although not in visible light. I also understand that an image has recently been taken of this object in the infrared wavelengths. Have there been any attempts to do spectroscopy on...

    Besides the bigbang, are there other published theories about cosmic microwave

    So the long and the short of it is that no one ever tried to explain the CMB, other than as some artifact left over from the origin of the cosmos, correct?

    Besides the bigbang, are there other published theories about cosmic microwave

    No, the Steady State theory is a theory that attempts to explain the origin of the cosmos, not the background CMB. A trip to wikipedia indicates that the Steady State theory was originated circa 1948, and the CMB was only discovered in 1964, so clearly the State State theory was not conceived...

    Besides the bigbang, are there other published theories about cosmic microwave

    OK, but you didn't really answer the question.. You just sort of inverted the question, and then went forward. I'm not asking what the "steady state" theory attempts to explain or doesn't.. I'm asking whether there are other explanations for the CMB.. For example, maybe there's a...

    Besides the bigbang, are there other published theories about cosmic microwave

    That's a good question.. I'd like to know the answer as well..
