Atom smasher collides with other research

Thank you for publishing the McClatchy News Service article about the $4.4-billion super conducting supercollider recently proposed by President Reagan.

Beside the issue of the "pork barrel" nature of this project coming up for a siting decision four months before the next presidential election, I wish here to raise the issue of a potential "sciencegate" type coverup of information invalidating the physics upon which it is based.

Since the University of California is coordinating California's lobbying efforts to obtain this site, and since UC also coordinates the laboratories which have developed all of the U.S. nuclear weapons, I must ask why UCSB's Institute for Theoretical Physics (whose research feeds the nuclear weapons labs) has for over five years stonewalled the discussion of new discoveries in physics which clearly indicate that some fundamental concepts of modern physics are incorrect and that particle physics must undergo thorough re-interpretation.

Some of these new discoveries were discussed this past weekend at UCSB in the California Student Solidarity Conference workshop called "Revolutionary Energy Alternatives" about new proven electrical power technologies to replace nuclear and fossil fuel power. The work of Joseph Newman, who has the backing of 30 technical experts and 11 U.S. congresspeople in his fight for a U.S. patent, was presented along with mention of the research of Santa Barbaran Bruce E. DePalma.

Six months ago I submitted the reports from the national government of India and Stanford University professor emeritus Robert Kincheloe, which verify the reality of DePalma's "n-Machine" discovery, to UCSB's Institute for Theoretical Physics and Physics Department.

Why has there been no response?
