3 thoughts on “A Magnetar in Sheep’s Clothing

    The statement, “Young, fast-spinning pulsars were not thought to have enough magnetic energy to generate such powerful bursts,” indicates a lack of understanding of the energy generated by repulsive interactions between neutrons (N).

    N-N repulsion has been documented as one of the major factors in the rest masses of all 2,850 known types of stable and radioactive nuclei [1, 2].


    N-N repulsion energizes neutron stars and prevents their collapse into imaginary “black holes.” That is why the observations of neutron stars and “black holes” are so similar. In fact N-N repulsion, rather than H-fusion, is the energy source that powers the cosmos [3].

    With kind regards,
    Oliver K. Manuel

    About sixty-five (65) nuclear physicists at Brookhaven National Laboratory, the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility and other leading research facilities and universities, including MIT [http://tinyurl.com/5tg4tv, http://www.sciencemag.org/cgi/content/abstract/320/5882/1476?ck=nck, have cautiously confirmed earlier reports of strongly repulsive forces between neutrons [http://www.omatumr.com/abstracts/jfeinterbetnuc.pdf; http://xxx.lanl.gov/pdf/nucl-th/0511051

    This signals the end to speculation that a Big Bang created Hydrogen, to the standard model of Hydrogen-filled stars, and to the illusion that the universe is powered by Hydrogen-fusion.

    The same template was followed for stars and atoms, as Niels Bohr suggested in his model of the atom before quantum mechanics was invented.


    Hydrogen fills inter-stellar space (as electrons fill inter-nuclear space), but the mass of the universe (like the mass of the atom) consists almost entirely of energetic, compact nuclear matter. Oliver K. Manuel;

    If someone in the world knows anything better on neutron-repulsion – This is the best scientist of the world – Prof. Oliver Manuel. He is founder new field of science – Neutron-repulsion science.
    We have an excellent framework for the scientific community to solve deep crisis in the Cosmology.
    False epoch of the BBT is over!
    There is begun new epoch of the cyclic and recycling universe and the Neutron Cosmology!
    Each young star is a neutron star system.
    Each old star is a recycled neutron star system.
    Each neutron is a fuel in the stellar cores.
    The naked cores of the exploded stars indicate remaining protons and neutrons (99.999999%) but these neutrons are not the ordinary neutrons. They are the recycled neutrons without the positrons and electrons.
    Each scientist wants to know – how the Milky Way and other galaxies are formed.
    Please – Only the neutron repulsion science has an amazing answer and the answer is the truth!
