 Problems with Pulsars
© Copyright 2012All rights reserved
In 1982,Don Backer led a group which discoveredPSR B1937+21, a pulsar with a rotation period of   just 1.6 milliseconds.1.If it is more than 152 km in diameter, a point on its equator would exceed 300,000 km/sec (thespeed of light). Earths diameter is 12,756 km.2.With a tilt angle(the difference between its magnetic poles and its spin axis) other than zero, the beam of ejected particles would not form a straight line. It would form an ever increasing spiralon a single plane if the angle was 90. It would form an ever increasing corkscrew shape for allother angles. The loops in the spiral or screw would be seperated by a distance of 480 km( thedistance light travels in 1.6 milliseconds). Watch thevideo 3.In a single year, while the lead photon/wave travels at the speed of light, a spiral consisting of 3.5 billion loops is formed. The lead photon/wave has traveled 1 light year. The overall lengthof the spiral would be approximately 11 billion light years.4.If the photons/waves break up and continue in the direction they were originally going, it wouldstill form the same pattern, only it would look like dashed or dotted lines instead of a solid linewith the dots getting farther and farther apart. At one light year from the pulsar, they would be1,260,567,732,739 times farther apart that they originally were(more if the pulsar is less than150 km in diameter).5.If they play follow the leader, then either the wave/photon spacing is stretched or the followersexceeded the speed of light by an average factor of 5.5 billion to one in order to keep up. Notethat scientist think they have detected these waves in the gamma and xray ranges of thespectrum. No stretching of 11 billion to one there.6.Obviously pulsars are not rotating beacons as scientists suspect.7.What are they? I'm still working on that one. Just to speculate, I would suggest they go back totheir origal LGM theory. LGM stands for little green men. Don't laugh. It could be a homing beacon to find their way home. But not a rotating beacon, since the spiral it would form give noindication of the direction to the source. A simple beacon that turns on and off at a specificfrequency. A frequency that distinguishes it from other beacons.8.Let's do some math with the first ever detected pulsar. They detected it with radio wavedetectors. It has a revolution of 1.3373 seconds, a pulse width of .04 seconds, and lies 2283.12light years away. The neutron star has a radius of 1.947 km and 1.4 solar masses.It would create spiral loops 12,000 km thick(distance light travels in .04 seconds and 401,190km apart(distance light travels in 1.3373 seconds).If you could examine a cross section of the beam as it is emitted (only one photon thick),another cross section 1 pm away(minimum wavelength of a gamma ray) would be offset byabout .0000153 pm. (I calculate the cross section of the beam to be 183.6 meters in diameter).There would be 65,359 cross sections before they lined up again with the photons followingsimilar trajectories. This would put the wavelength of the individual beams at 65,359 pm. Theywould still be gamma photons but striking the reciever at the frequency of ultraviolet.The beams, even if packed together at maximum density when emitted, would spread apart by afactor of 5,508,040,208 to 1. This would place the beams a minimum of .00508 meters apartwhen they reached the earth. Had these actually been radio waves, even the shortest wavelengthof around 1 cm. when they left the pulsar, they would have been 65,359 cm apart within a beam

nbr 7 It would be nice to have a list of all competing theories. I'm not much of a LGM type of person but who knows. I will do a little research and perhaps we can create a list of theories to chose from.

nbr 6 This is a statement to be read as a conclusion form the 5 problem before?
Albert Bijzitter added this note
nbr 5. I don' t see that photons send out in a spiral pattern are playing follow the leader. I would say they explicitly don't follow, they all start in a different direction from their predecessor. But perhaps I read it the wrong way. A link to the scientific discovery in gamma and x-rays would help perhaps.

Nbr 4 I'm sorry but you lost me here. The spirals break up into dots and... But I dont see the formulation of a problem. Please help me out and explain it to me.
Albert Bijzitter added this note
Nbr 3 I think I understand this onebut I will check anyway: I suppose you say that the length of the spiral and the time in which it is created violates the relativistic principle that nothing can move faster then the speed of light. Am I correct?
Albert Bijzitter added this note
Nbr 2 I see a statement that spirals can be created. But what is the problem?
Albert Bijzitter added this note
I start with nbr 1. First I want to get sure what the problem is: if the diameter is more then 152 km there is a problem and when it is less then 152 km then there isn't ?
