Many research scientists push the wrong major astronomical discovery

Scientists Hoyle’s theory of the universe after the “big bang” No error contributed to the development of many important astronomical discoveries.

NEW YORK, February 23 reported that Thomas Edison famously said:. “I have not failed, I just found a thousand ways will not work.” This sentence sums up the basic facts about science, but It will usually be misinterpreted, and scientific progress (any branch of science are the same) does not mean that you can get a direct answer, and it is an arduous road, at the beginning there will be a lot of mistakes, bumpy road. In scientific exploration, the error is not only bound to base some, but also creative thinking, because it discoverer of the guidelines by the other line before the correct path.

Some people might ask, in today’s highly competitive science and much-needed funds in the atmosphere, publishing writings and references has become the primary criterion for measuring success, such an atmosphere similar to accommodate these errors do simple answer:? Can. The fact is that these errors has been very important, and the importance of not just confined to the academic field.

In fact, all of the scientific method is based on the idea: find the need to correct mistakes is to learn from its theoretical foundation. Any scientific theory must be based on existing observations or experimental results, and the characteristics of a scientific theory should be obtained based on the experimental results related observations or predictions. If the results of these observations or lack of prophecy, then this theory should be abandoned, or at least should be amended.

Error occupy an important position in the advancement of science than those errors due to quick success, careless or inexperienced produced, but those errors while fine for many bold ideas generated by research experiments, and such thoughts can contribute to major scientific discovery.

Astronomy error

Fred Hoyle, one of the greatest astrophysicists of the twentieth century, as “astronomical error” a good example. Hoyle and his two colleagues made famous steady state model of the universe, which states that the universe did not develop in the famous “Big Bang” (a term coined by the Howell), the rather constant and will always this state is maintained.

This view was outstanding in that it considers each point within the space are similar, each direction is similar, and therefore the universe at any time will remain a state.

Although the final steady-state theory was refuted (because the universe may have originated in the Big Bang, and ever-expanding), but this theory while filling the entire astronomical community has become very active, but also makes a lot of problems should have the answer. In fact, a common theoretical model, the universe in which we live is only part of a huge system of the universe, and these theoretical models and the entire universe is in a constant state of the system point of view is the same.

Similarly, the 19th-century physicist William Thomson (Lord Kelvin hereinafter), is another example of astronomy wrong. He estimated the age of the Earth is less than a billion years, the result is less than 50 times the modern radiological measurements. Although estimates of the absolute Kelvin flawed, but his efforts have been occupies a central position in the history of science, as he put real science (physical laws) is applied to the long-standing problem of fuzzy control speculation.

Some creative ideas to promote the Kelvin geologists and physicists fruitful dialogue, and ultimately solve many problems, and even took a long time to prove Darwin’s theory of evolution. Kelvin inadvertent error also damaged their own evaluation, this error is driven by the flow of liquid can transfer the heat inside the Earth, but later theory of plate tectonics and continental drift are highlighting the importance of this error.
