Nobel Prizes for Dark Matter, Big Bang, Inflation, UHECR, Accelerating Universe

LOS ALTOS HILLS, Calif., May 1 – The five top priority cosmic-phenomena enigmas of the recent past have been the dark matter of the universe, the accelerating expansion of the universe, cosmic inflation, the Big Bang and its entropy, and the ultra-high-energy cosmic rays (UHECR). In his December 15, 2003, astro-cosmology book, “How Dark Matter Created Dark Energy and the Sun,” Jerome Drexler describes a “Cosmic-Ray Cosmology” that cosmologically links dark matter, the accelerating expansion of the universe, and ultra-high-energy cosmic rays.

On February 15, 2007, Drexler published a scientific paper online, physics/0702132, on the physics arXiv entitled, “A Relativistic-Proton Dark Matter Would Be Evidence the Big Bang Probably Satisfied the Second Law Of Thermodynamics,” which links the Big Bang to both dark matter and to Cosmic Inflation theory. This revolutionary scientific paper completed the preliminary evidence that all five top priority cosmic-phenomena enigmas listed above are cosmologically linked, which in turn helped Drexler plausibly solve all five cosmic enigmas and establish the basis for Postmodern Cosmology.

On Nov. 8, 2007, in referring to a significant cosmic ray discovery, the University of Chicago News Office published the following quote, “This is a fundamental discovery,” said Nobel laureate James Cronin, the University Professor Emeritus in Physics at the University of Chicago. “The age of cosmic-ray astronomy has arrived. In the next few years, our data will permit us to identify the exact sources of these cosmic rays and how they accelerate these particles.”

This alerted Drexler that the world was still not aware of or did not believe his explanations in his first and second books in 2003 and 2006 that “identify the exact sources of these cosmic rays and how they accelerate these particles.” He began to prepare and assemble material for a 2008 astro-cosmology book.

On Dec. 4, 2007 a University of California, Berkeley news source published an article, “Nobelist George Smoot Launches New Cosmology Center.” The article says, “Smoot hopes that the new center will become a place where observational cosmologists like himself, phenomenologists like Ma and theorists like Murayama come together with observers to solve the big questions of 21st century cosmology. These questions include whether the fundamental constants of nature, such as the gravitational constant and the fine structure constant, vary over time; whether and how inflation happened a split-second after the Big Bang. …”

Drexler promptly concluded that his February 15, 2007 scientific paper, which linked the Big Bang to both dark matter and to Cosmic Inflation theory could be utilized to answer George Smoot’s cosmology query, “whether and how inflation happened a split-second after the Big Bang.”

Thus, with two Nobel Laureates in physics seeking solutions to cosmic-phenomena enigmas that Drexler believed he had already discovered for ultra-high-energy cosmic rays in one case and for Cosmic Inflation theory in another, he accelerated his writing efforts on his 2008 astro-cosmology book.

This led to his March 2008, 292-page paperback book, “Discovering Postmodern Cosmology: Discoveries in Dark Matter, Cosmic Web, Big Bang, Inflation, Cosmic Rays, Dark Energy, Accelerating Cosmos.” It is now available from and Drexler waived all author royalties so the book could be priced at an affordable $15.95.

Cosmic Enigmas that are plausibly solved/explained in the new book, “Discovering Postmodern Cosmology“:

(1) Did the Big Bang satisfy the Second Law of Thermodynamics? Was the Big Bang a chaotic fireball explosion or a low-entropy violent radial dispersion of multitudinous relativistic protons having kinetic energies compatible with estimated Big Bang temperatures?

(2) What causes the accelerating expansion of the universe?

(3) What is the explanation for Cosmic Inflation, which is believed to have taken place a fraction of a second after the Big Bang? What caused Cosmic Inflation to stop?

(4) From what energy source do the ultra-high-energy cosmic ray protons get their energy? From where do they depart prior to penetrating Earth’s atmosphere?

(5) What is the precise nature of the dark matter of the universe? What evidence supports this conclusion?

(6) Is there a more useful cosmology paradigm than the one used for the past twenty years?

Drexler’s May 22, 2006 book, “Comprehending and Decoding the Cosmos,” which solves more than 15 cosmic enigmas, is cataloged and available in over 40 astronomy or physics libraries around the world. They include libraries at Harvard, Stanford, Yale, UC Berkeley, UC Santa Cruz, Cornell, Harvard-Smithsonian, Vassar, and the universities of Hawaii, Toronto, Illinois, Edinburgh, Hamburg, Goettingen, Groningen, Copenhagen, Chile, Bologna, Helsinki, Lisbon, Guadalajara, Kyoto, and the Max-Planck-Institute for Astrophysik.

Jerome Drexler, inventor of the LaserCard optical memory card, worked at Bell Labs, was a research professor in physics at NJIT, and chief scientist of LaserCard Corp. Drexler is the author of four books on his discovery of the nature of dark matter, dark energy and “dark matter cosmology” of the universe.
