This is the same thing Larson said, about the same time. The sun eats rock and dust for energy; it is not burning out, but getting brighter and hotter. I have to wonder what happened to "modern" astronomical thought in the 48 years since then... and it agrees with what Ra said back in 1981.Dr. Jason J. Nassau, director of the Warner-Swasey Observatory, Cleveland, Ohio, attended the International Science Symposium held recently in Rome, Italy. On July 1, 1957, he reported:
Dr. Nassau wrote:The conclusions reached at the International Science Symposium were incredible. Our sun is absorbing material to put forth more energy.The earth is seen racing to a hot, not a cold, end. Our world will end twice as quickly as science has expected. Our sun is not dying as formerly supposed, but is growing brighter and hotter. Oceans will eventually boil away. Our sun is absorbing material to put forth more energy.
