Polar Precession / Polar Obliquity Calculator

A spreadsheet program that Paul LaViolette has written for use with Microsoft Excel®. Calculates the ecliptic longitude position of the vernal equinox for arbitrary dates in the past. It also calculates the corresponding angle of polar obliquity (the inclination of the Earth’s pole to the ecliptic). The program uses a … More

Evidence that radio pulsars may be artificial beacons of ETI origin

This paper presents evidence indicating that pulsar sky positions are nonrandomly distributed in a pattern that is not easily attributed to natural causes. As one example, between l ~ 32° to l ~ 57°, the number of pulsars progressively rises with increasing longitude until at the northern one-radian longitude … More
