- Numerous parties, both hosting and attending
- A funeral that involved a few hundred miles of 2-way travel, some through lake-effect snow
- Some (minor) snowstorms at home
- A small and mildly disruptive home repair/remodel
- I organized a presentation by Dr. John Mather (wikipedia) for NCAS and had lunch with Dr. Mather & Dr. Robert Park (wikipedia). The presentation is available online at YouTube.
- My new computer system is almost completely configured. I've run a few compute-intensive simulations on it as testing for the redshift quantization project.
- Project 1: The Quantized Redshift tutorial is largely complete. Four of the articles, with graphics, are currently staged, with more to come. I expect to release one per week.
- Project 2: The GPS project is a little less developed since it has a number of sub-components that I want the capability to address
- Project 3: Five Lagrange Points don't exist in geocentrism. Pretty far along due to it's simplicity, but it still requires a fair amount of background material. However, Mr. Delano's arrogance has provided an interesting opportunity and I'll give this some time to develop.
- Project 4: For the Michelson interferometers operating in space, I've received a reply from the instrument team. I will start assembling more detailed documentation about what we know from these spacecraft.
- Project 5 & 6: Hardly touched these two.
Any comments made to the current series of posts which is addressed in a future article will not be released until the future article is released so I can appropriately link it as a response. I already have several additional posts addressing currently pending comments and I plan to hold them as well.
I've been thoroughly enjoying this time away from weekly posting. I have made an incredible amount of progress on material that I have been wanting to develop into tutorials that would be appropriate for classroom use. Since I now have a backlog of material on quantized redshifts that still need to be converted to blog posts. I expect to release them about once per week but that frequency may slow as I catch up to material still under development.
Teachers should free to e-mail me with suggestions of specific topics on this site that you'd like to see developed into material more suited to classroom use.
