Ahh-Mazing “AHA!” Discovery for October 2017: Breaking the Glass Ceiling in Astronomy

in Ahh-Mazing Discoveries

We talk a lot about the healing energy side of electromagnetism in Nature. After all, the Polarized Water contains active hydrogen enriched with electrons, a by-product of our proprietary electromagnetic process.

Electromagnetism fueled by solar radiation is the mechanism that gives the push and pull of ocean currents and temperature differences between the ocean water and surrounding air. Hurricanes are Nature’s way of releasing excess energy and many of us, unfortunately, experienced those powerful forces this year.

Hydrogen is the electric energy fuel of our sun. Incredibly, the scientific wisdom over 100 years ago was that the sun had the same element composition as that of the Earth. A woman, Cecilia Payne-Gaposchkin, prepared an astronomy doctoral dissertation on hydrogen being vastly more abundant on the sun (by a factor of one million compared to that on Earth). She took another giant leap to write in her thesis that hydrogen was overwhelmingly the primary element of all stars as well as within the entire Universe. Astronomer Henry Russell dismissed her thesis claims about hydrogen. Four years later in 1929, he realized Cecilia was correct. He gave some credit to Cecilia’s work in his subsequent white paper; but history rewards Henry for being the lead discoverer. Poignantly, Cecilia received the Henry Norris Russell Prize almost 50 years later in 1976, and three years before her death.

Cecilia’s interest in astronomy was originally sparked by a lecture on the 1919 expedition to observe a solar eclipse in Africa as a test for Einstein’s general theory of relatively. Her thesis is considered by other well-known astronomers as “undoubtedly the most brilliant Ph.D. thesis ever written in astronomy.” Her job promotions were torturously slow going from a professor’s technical assistant for years and finally to the first woman to head a department at Harvard. We admire Cecilia’s Ahh-Mazing “AHA!” Discovery and her tenacity in breaking through the glass ceiling in astronomy!
