Photonics 4 Astronomy

Post by Photonics » Sun Aug 30, 2015 7:02 pm

Hi my name is Mark. Greetings to everyone. I'm an inventor of an experimental photonic based, deep space telescope array. I started the project in 2012 and have produced thousands of images and videos.
I took a hiatus for awhile from the project but as of last week Ive started it back up. I was originally working with Craig Levin NASA HQ's Librarian in reference to propsals for unsolicited technology. I'm now working with Rick Spencer at NASA in the same regards. Ive also talked with Rob Scholten Harvard Dept. of Astronomy and Astrophysics. Both Rick and Rob have referred me to present my studies in a public forum discussion format until I can find a home for the project. The wheels at NASA turn slow and with budget cuts its even more difficult.

I would like to present a few images of some rather fascinating objects with the approval of the Forum Admin if necessary.

You can post images if you'd like.

APOD: M31: The Andromeda Galaxy (2015 Aug 30)

Post by Photonics » Mon Aug 31, 2015 3:57 am

Hello I was referred by NASA HQ and Harvard to general astronomy forums in order to present some images from my experimental photonic deep space telescope array. We would like to gather opinions from other astronomers around the world. I have a few images of obscuring torus formations possibly around black holes. These findings may be groundbreaking in relation to the advances in photonic astronomy

I'm looking for the Administrator here.

Photonics on Kepler's Supernova Remnant...from 2012

Post by Photonics » Mon Aug 31, 2015 6:41 am

A view of Kepler's Supernova Remnant via Photonic based astronomy. A close up Pinpoint Radiation Study of high energy areas reveal possible new details. The system is still in it's experimental stages.

I hope this is the right area to post in. My apologies if I'm in the wrong :)

Why do you call it "photonics"? Virtually all astronomical imaging is done in the EM spectrum. Why not call it by its general wavelength, ie x-rays, UV, etc since you say they are high energy imagery?

The images are of no use without a technical description (or link to one) of the methodology involved in their collection and processing.

The system is still in experimental stages. Specific methodology is proprietary since I'm the inventor and it's simply not available to the public yet. There are excellent articles on advanced photonic research at DARPA as far as technical descriptions and methodology etc.

You've just defined yourself as a pseudoscientist. If the technique isn't ready for public disclosure, neither is the data.

You're correct Chris. All I'm asking here simply is this..."Do theses look like space images? And if so do you think more research is warranted?"
This was a Discovery by Chance also. I did not set out one day to invent a Telescope lol. I'm a layman and I would not even consider myself an amateur astronomer...

I don't know what a "space image" looks like. If I saw the picture absent any context, I'd be as likely to think it's some egg yolk spattered on a pan as something astronomical. Context is everything, and for scientific images, is useless without an understanding of the techniques used.

M-87

Post by Photonics » Tue Sep 01, 2015 9:06 pm

Possibly M-87 from 2012 Opinions are most welcome. Again I have no real provable idea how these images are being produced. All I can do is guess based on existing publicly available research.

Just looking for opinions as to whether theses "appear to be images from space?" And if so, would the community suggest that I should "proceed with further research?"

This project is in it's infancy stages..Just trying to get some answers instead of more questions. The questions are mounting taller than Everest at this point.

Polite and respectful comments/questions are appreciated.

Possibly M-87. I can't say for certain but according to my sky maps I was in the correct vicinity. The system seems to image very large swaths of space at times. I have issues with steering also it seems. I am not claiming this is M-87, just an inference at this point. I cant find anything else that this could be however.

Additional possible Kepler's Supernova Remnant imagery with a raw comparison image. Credit Hubble, Chandra, and Spitzer.

I have been referred to post my work on-line by NASA and Harvard for examination. They are essentially my only audience at this point.



Thanks,


Mark

Professional Astronomers browsing Starship Asterisk* who are curious about my work may contact me by PM.

I am not here to engage in curt debate on materials and methods but rather simply providing possible supportive evidence for advancements in astronomy via the exploitation of the possible unknown data contained within the photon with Photonic crystals
