Presentation: Startling changes to basic Physics laws.
Laura Mersini-Houhgton, Physics Professor at UNC Chapel Hill has presented mathematical proof that Black Holes can never come into being in the first place. Physicists have been trying to merge the two theories (Einstein’s theory of Gravity and quantum mechanics). This is the first scenario that brings the two theories together. It would require physicists to rewrite all that we know regarding physics.

Next meetings to be held on October 30 (Board) and November 6 (General). Both have been retained at 6:30 both Thursdays at the Clinton/Macomb Public Library.
The agenda for the next General Meeting: Short business meeting followed by Discussion of Fracking and gas/oil recovery.
