SLAC-PUB-8779: Observational Evidence for Two Cosmological Predictions Made by Bit-String Physics

This pre-print from the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC) covers string theory and dark matter, in particular the baryon/ photon ratio at the time of nucleogenesis. The theories presented are not in disagreement with actual cosmological data, including that from BOOMERANG. This pre-print may be downloaded for free in .pdf or .ps format.
California Institute for Physics and Astrophysics

The California Institute for Physics and Astrophysics "is dedicated to exploring fundamental problems in physics (e.g. gravitation, inertia, the nature of mass) as well as very-long range technological possibilities that may emerge from the properties of the quantum vacuum." The Web site offers information about the organization as well as online articles such as Mass Medium, Nature of Mass,...
The NASA Astrophysics Data System

The NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS) Web site, which is hosted by the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, is described as a Digital Library for Physics, Astrophysics, and Instrumentation. ADS maintains four bibliographic databases containing more than 3.2 million records that can be searched or browsed by various interfaces including a Journal/ Volume/ Page Service, Table of Contents...
Black Holes

The first website (1), created by the Department of Physics at Syracuse University, provides an educational, easily understandable explanation of the characteristics of a black hole. Students can learn the consequences a spacecraft would face if it traveled near or through the horizon of a black hole. The next website (2 ), created by the Amazing Space education group of the Space Telescope...
The Walsworth Group at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics

The Walsworth Group at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics created this website to present its multidisciplinary research using state-selected atoms. The website provides images and lengthy descriptions of the center's many experimental research projects such as low magnetic field MRI for humans and granular media dynamics. Researchers can view abstracts and download papers describing...
Astrophysical Virtual Observatory

At this website, the European Commission and six European organizations discuss the creation of the Astrophysical Virtual Observatory Project (AVO) for European astronomy. Visitors can discover the function of a Virtual Observatory (VO) as "an international astronomical community-based initiative" aimed at allowing "global electronic access to the available astronomical data archives of space and...
JINA: The Joint Institute for Nuclear Astrophysics

The Joint Institute for Nuclear Astrophysics (JINA) was created to "foster interdisciplinary collaborations, workshops, research program, and educational initiatives at its participating institutions as well as within the field of nuclear astrophysics at large." Researchers can download the latest JINA-related articles. Students and educators can find out about outreach programs, lectures, and...
The University of Waterloo: Astrophysics and Gravitation

The University of Waterloo's astrophysics and gravitation group studies the origin and fate of the Universe, the nature of dark matter, black hole dynamics and thermodynamics, the unification of general relativity and quantum mechanics and other fundamental physics problems. The web site provides a link to the faculty, where users can discover more about their specific research interests. By...
