What's going on at projectEUREKA?Problem #1011 at projectEUREKA says: The eclipses from Algol (an eclipsing binary star) come further apart in time when the Earth is moving away from Algol and closer together in time when the Earth is moving towards Algol, thereby proving that the speed of light is variable and that Einstein's Special Theory of Relativity is wrong. #2 20100505 20:28:58
Re: What's going on at projectEUREKA?Hi; In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #3 20100505 20:43:23
Re: What's going on at projectEUREKA?Thanks for verifying this BobbyM, The eclipses from Algol (an eclipsing binary star) come further apart in time when the Earth is moving away from Algol and closer together in time when the Earth is moving towards Algol, thereby proving that the speed of light is variable and that Einstein's Special Theory of Relativity is wrong. #4 20100505 20:45:09
Re: What's going on at projectEUREKA?You might be, It is just that we are losing it together. I am getting your answer. Is it possible for other than a right triangle that the answer would be 40% ? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.

Re: What's going on at projectEUREKA?Hi Fruityloop; A is for any 3 points and B is for those 3 points multiplied by a scaling factor that lengthens each side by 6 / 5. It is easy to see that you can manipulate B to: C, B is just 36 / 25 times A. That is where the 1.44 = 36 / 25 comes from. You are right for any triangle. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #6 20100507 11:40:43
Re: What's going on at projectEUREKA?Here's another one: problem #996 The eclipses from Algol (an eclipsing binary star) come further apart in time when the Earth is moving away from Algol and closer together in time when the Earth is moving towards Algol, thereby proving that the speed of light is variable and that Einstein's Special Theory of Relativity is wrong. #7 20100507 11:55:03
