New computer simulations suggest that the spiral arms of galaxies are not only a natural phenomenon but that they are a persistent one.


Readers!

For many reasons, mostly political but partly ethical, I do not use Google, Facebook, Twitter. They practice corrupt business policies, while targeting conservative websites for censoring, facts repeatedly confirmed by news stories and by my sense that Facebook has taken action to prevent my readers from recommending Behind the Black to their friends.
 
Thus, I must have your direct support to keep this webpage alive. Not only does the money pay the bills, it gives me the freedom to speak honestly about science and culture, instead of being forced to write it as others demand.

 

Please consider donating by giving either a one-time contribution or a regular subscription, as outlined in the tip jar below.


 

Regular readers can support Behind The Black with a contribution via paypal:

You can also support me by buying one of my books, as noted in the boxes interspersed throughout the webpage. And if you buy the books through the ebookit links, I get a larger cut and I get it sooner.

    Its sort of like pulling the plug in a drain.

    Except gravity and space do not exactly react the same as water tension and your sink.
    But I bet the math is close enough to explain a part of it.

    Computer simulations? And not one word about how ‘unreliable’ they are, no ‘garbage in, garbage out’ cynicism, not a word about how a computer simulation could not possibly account for all the complexity of an entire galaxy… I wonder why that is… oh thats right, its physics, not climate science, there’s no fossil fuel involved. No ‘skepticism’ needed, and none mentioned.

  • Y’know, Thomas, I think right now you are simply trying to be annoying for no reason. I specifically mentioned that these are computer simulations to make sure everyone understood that the results should be looked at with a grain of salt.

    Yeah, right. The article specifically mentioned they were computer simulations, which you merely reposted without comment.

    Has it ever been suggested that spiral arms of galaxies are unnatural phenomena?
