HOW TO CREATE SCIENCE

A scientist makes an observation and notices a problem or tries to answer the questions of why and how.  

Timothy Ferris said in his 1997 book The Whole Shebang- A State-Of-The Universe(s) Report, “Science is not a static body of dogma, to stray from which is to risk one’s epaulets stripped off in a ceremony of banishment from the scientific community.  It is a self-correcting system of inquiry, in which errors – of which there are, of course, plenty – are sooner or later detected by experiment or by more careful analysis.”

A scientist can make a discovery, or develop a new model.  Timothy Ferris also said in his book, “Through astrophysics, it became possible to go beyond describing how the sky looks and to begin learning how it got to be that way.”

Astronomers that want to go beyond observations in the visual can do astronomy and astrophysics by the scientific method and create new science several different ways.  They can notice a problem or ask the questions why or how.  They support a hypothesis by gathering quantitative and qualitative data form observations and by using problem solving techniques and critical thinking to support conclusions to test new or present theories. 

To start the process, use critical thinking and the scientific method to support why and how.  Alternatively see a problem and seek the solution by designing experiments and/or gather data to support a hypothesis. 

When one wants to contribute a new theory or model they must formulate a hypothesis and test it by experiments and gather data to support the conclusion(s).  The data is analyzed and interpreted which supports the hypothesis or rejects the hypothesis which will require the hypothesis to be modified. 

This website supports open access science and public collaboration vs the old system of peer review.  You are a scientist too – You are an astrophysicist too – You are an astronomer too – add your comments, make your contributions with open access science and public collaboration.  Together we can construct a new scientific revolution to open up a new Universe unknown to previous generations.

SCIENTIFIC REVOLUTION – GOALS FOR THE WEBSITE

This website is to get off the ground a scientific revolution to change the perceptions of the detectable Universe.  I plan to start that (soon after a foundation is laid) by introducing a critical experiment (experimentum crucis) in the electromagnetic spectrum. 

I will develop and teach how to make new discoveries in astronomy and astrophysics using science discovery methodologies to validate or falsify present or future hypothesises, models, theories, and/or claims as part of a foundation.

I will also promote a new concept of open access science and public collaboration vs the old method of peer review. 

Understanding the results of the critical experiment has been the key to unlock many mysteries of the Universe (that presently perplex the scientific community) which will be revealed as the blog content grows.

I ask you to join me in this journey of scientific revolution and discovery as we lay down together the foundation for science to progress to new heights.
