67). The Odd Seven Continents Theory  By : Richard Monk

68). Rishon Model of Elementary Particles  By : J.D. Shelton
It has been proposed that the quarks and leptons consist of more fundamental particles called rishons. The T rishon may be defined as having mass and charge e/3. The V rishon is neutral and has little or no mass. The rishons have spin 1/2, carry color charge, and combine in triplets or rishon-antirishon pairs. Thus the electron is a TTT, the neutri...

69). The Interesting Eagle Nebula  By : David Craig
The Eagle Nebula, associated with open star cluster M16 of the Milky Way, was named for its dramatic similarity to the appearance of an eagle.

They act as barrier- breaking i...

72). E=mc2 is Wrong - Einstein's Special Relativity Fundamentally Flawed  By : Mike Strauss
