Today is the first anniversary of the sad loss of Vale Carl Smith. Carl was a great contributor to the study of solar-planetary theory and started the landscheidt.auditblogs.com blog now continued and augmented by Geoff Sharp at landscheidt.info. Carl was anxious that his work would be continued and extended by others after him and not be forgotten. He can be sure of that.
It was the assistance Carl provided to Ray Tomes in his thread on this subject on another forum which enabled me to get to grips with some data and start discovering things for myself. Geoff is dedicated to carrying Carl’s work forward and I’m proud to be doing the same. Carl was a man with a rare clarity of vision and purpose, and willingness to share knowledge. I want to honour those principles he held and work towards a better understanding of Cosmos.
I have reproduced below one of Carl’s graphs showing the relationship between Solar angular momentum and it’s motion around the centre of mass of the solar system.
