• Whose book is considered to be the most important publication in the hi

    From Richard Hertz@21:1/5 to All on Sun Apr 30 06:28:01 2023
    INDOCTRINATION, AS ANSWER GIVEN IN GOOGLE:

    "Albert Einstein's 1905 theory of special relativity is one of the most important papers ever published in the field of physics.1 feb 2022"

    Book? 26 pages manifesto? The world of disinformation is rotten to the core.

    Same question in Duck Duck Go:

    Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica (Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy) by Isaac Newton (1687)

    Dramatic is an unlikely word for a book that devotes half its pages to deconstructions of ellipses, parabolas, and tangents. Yet the cognitive power on display here can trigger chills.
    Principia marks the dawn of modern physics, beginning with the familiar three laws of motion ("To every action there is always opposed an equal reaction" is the third).
    Later Newton explains the eccentric paths of comets, notes the similarity between sound waves and ripples on a pond, and makes his famous case that gravity guides the orbit of the moon as surely as it defines the arc of a tossed pebble.
    The text is dry but accessible to anyone with a high school education — an opportunity to commune with perhaps the top genius in the history of science.


    "You don't have to be a Newton junkie like me to really find it gripping. I mean how amazing is it that this guy was able to figure out that the same force that lets a bird poop on your head governs the motions of planets in the heavens? That is towering
    genius, no?"

    What about Sagnac?
    Does light according to Sagnac use different time to go around
    the Earth at equator when it goes eastwards and when it goes
    westwards?
    Or is Sagnac not applicable on this problem?

    Somebody said:
    "SAGNAC DIDN'T CARE ABOUT EARTH'S ROTATION ANGULAR VELOCITY."
    Was he right? :-D
