Weird star spotted. Any thoughts?

And a couple of guys are just carrying it around, playing with it?

Sounds a bit off.

it's a concentric cylindrical setup, uses metallic hydrogen to generate field. the rings vibrate, so on. I'm just thr guy who photographed the schematics and carry the finished product...


Cool since the world's only sample disappeared when the diamond vice it was in broke.

Feb. 2017 - The World's Only Metallic Hydrogen Sample Has Disappeared.

Why username: w121x080y120z850

To lend credit to your scientific discovery?

Why not John the delivery driver?

What I'd like to know is what kind of telescope works "kinda like a CRT", and how does one get mass estimates and spectroscopic analysis of a star using it... By two non-scientists who just happened to have been delivering it.

ATS as it's fairly below radar


Muhahahaha , maybe nowadays but I doubt that.?

…. a coworker and I were transporting it and decided to flip it on.
Im not thinking its anything other than a glitchy spectrograph.
A comrade of mine suggested ATS as it's fairly below radar.



 



Uh huh, your explanation makes it clearer about the 'Star'...

your co-worker & you, turned on the 'wavicle' telescope and pretty much instantly produced an Analysis of the light bands (Spectrograph) from the street lights/mercury vapor type, common on city streets

just too many improbabilities involved with the turning-on of a highly advanced prototype instrument and getting results on-the-fly instead of the preferred protocols of analyzing a distant Star in a chance of a Trillion unorthodox escapade/Dark Experiment


tip-my-hat to your bravado

I'm not a cosmetologist but...


So you don't do makeup? Pity cause you might be better at it than writing this silliness! Or you could be an Astronomer they study them strange stars only you could discover...

May I ask what's the name of the company who made the telescope and for who and where you were delivering it?

That figure quoted is roughly the mass of Earth. Maybe they were pointing the telescope down instead of up?

...uses metallic hydrogen ...


It almost certainly does not.







Yes it does, the documentation has schematics and arrows and stuff. It says right on one of them: "Soft iron core with super conducting metallic wire with (L)Hydrogen thermal mitigation" That's science talk for using low temperatures to turn hydrogen into metal. I ain't no dumdick.

Documentation says "...conical GGG core (Gd3 Ga5 O12) with focusing and tuning magnetic segments..."
A GGG is like a CRT I'm assuming as its shaped like one in the diagram. For those who don't know, the numbers are turning figures.

Post a pick of the telescope you used when you get a chance.

OP said they were "transporting" this device.

Hmmmmm....that's odd, most interstellar telescopes, especially radio telescopes are far larger than can be "transported" in one piece.

Many of them are thousands of yards across and take years to set up properly to begin making observations, yet the OP was just "transporting" one of these devices and decided to set it up along the way, and he and a friend made an astounding interstellar discovery.

Seems legit to me!
