Kooky and incoherent.

 

Carry on...I'll show you how kooky I can get by proving the globe Earth claim is BOGUS!

It works like this:

The way to measure curvature of a globe with claimed circumference of 24.901 miles is with the equation eight inches by the mile squared. Do you even know what that means?

So... at a distance of 50-60 miles, how much of the Chicago bulildings should be visible from across lake Michigan?

Willis Tower 1451 FT tall.    


Go Figure...

So basically what you're ''claiming'' is that tides prove a globe Earth.  How so? Oh let me guess...GWAVITY! The mystical, magical glue that holds all the lies together. Consider this...there are oceanic depths unexplored. All it would take is a rising/falling seabed to create what we call tides.  What's that you say...no proff of that huh? A bit like your moon controls the tides 'theory.' What if its the other way around and its the mass of water motion that correlates the moon cycles? Neither can be proven so stick to the facts please...

Oldest material on Earth discovered
To work out how old the grains were, the researchers measured how long they had been exposed to cosmic rays in space. These rays are high-energy particles that travel through our galaxy and penetrate solid matter.

Some of these rays interact with the matter they encounter and form new elements. The longer they are exposed, the more of these elements form. The researchers used a particular form (isotope) of the element neon - Ne-21 - to date the grains.

"I compare this with putting out a bucket in a rainstorm. Assuming the rainfall is constant, the amount of water that accumulates in the bucket tells you how long it was exposed," said Dr Heck.

Measuring how many of the new elements are present tells scientists how long the grain was exposed to cosmic rays. This in turn informs them how old it is.

Some of the pre-solar grains turned out to be the oldest ever discovered.

Based on how many cosmic rays had interacted with the grains, most had to be 4.6-4.9 billion years old. For comparison, the Sun is 4.6 billion years old and the Earth is 4.5 billion.

However, the oldest yielded a date of around 7.5 billion years old.

DNA Sequencing Costs: Data

For many years, the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) has tracked the costs associated with DNA sequencing performed at the sequencing centers funded by the Institute. This information has served as an important benchmark for assessing improvements in DNA sequencing technologies and for establishing the DNA sequencing capacity of the NHGRI Genome Sequencing Program. Here, NHGRI provides an analysis of these data, which gives one view of the remarkable improvements in DNA sequencing technologies and data-production pipelines in recent years.

The cost-accounting data presented here are summarized relative to two metrics: (1) "Cost per Megabase of DNA Sequence" - the cost of determining one megabase (Mb; a million bases) of DNA sequence of a specified quality [see below]; (2) "Cost per Genome" - the cost of sequencing a human-sized genome. For each, a graph is provided showing the data since 2001; in addition, the actual numbers reflected by the graphs are provided in a summary table.

NHGRI welcomes people to download these graphs and use them in their presentations and teaching materials. NHGRI plans to update these data on a regular basis. You can view the data in in Excel by downloading the Sequencing Costs 2019.

Sequencing Cost Per Megabase

Sequencing cost per megabase - 2019

 

Cost Per Genome - August 2019

Cost per genome data - 2019

 

To illustrate the nature of the reductions in DNA sequencing costs, each graph also shows hypothetical data reflecting Moore's Law, which describes a long-term trend in the computer hardware industry that involves the doubling of 'compute power' every two years (See: Moore's Law [wikipedia.org]). Technology improvements that 'keep up' with Moore's Law are widely regarded to be doing exceedingly well, making it useful for comparison.

"The two Voyagers will outlast Earth," Kurth says. "They're in their own orbits around the galaxy for five billion years or longer. And the probability of them running into anything is almost zero."
