. . . NASA's IBEX and Voyager 1 missions have shattered all conventional ideas about the heliospheric boundary, the region separating our solar system from interstellar space. In 2009, the IBEX spacecraft created the first all-sky map of the boundary revealing an astonishing ribbon of energetic neutral atoms. According to scientists, it's still a big mystery. . . .
. . . The first ever images of the heliospheric boundary, published in October 2009, were made by the ENA instruments aboard the IBEX and Cassini spacecraft. These images are very exciting because they challenge existing theories about the region.
Energetic neutral atom (ENA) imaging, often described as "seeing with atoms", is a technology used to create global images of otherwise invisible phenomena in the magnetospheres of planets and at the boundary of the heliosphere - the far-flung outer edge of the solar system.
ENA images are constructed from the detection of energetic neutral atoms that are created in charge-exchange processes between ions in a hot plasma, such as the solar wind, and the atoms of a cold neutral background gas.
....they just need to combine the observations to come up with the true picture.....instead of poo pooing each other....

Perhaps you've already heard that GPS, by the very fact that it WORKS, confirms Einstein's relativity; also that Black Holes must be real. But these are little more than popular fictions, according to the distinguished GPS expert Ron Hatch. Here Ron describes GPS data that refute fundamental tenets of both the Special and General Relativity theories. The same experimental data, he notes, suggests an absolute frame with only an appearance of relativity.
Ron has worked with satellite navigation and positioning for 50 years, having demonstrated the Navy's TRANSIT System at the 1962 Seattle World's Fair. He is well known for innovations in high-accuracy applications of the GPS system including the development of the "Hatch Filter" which is used in most GPS receivers. He has obtained over two dozen patents related to GPS positioning and is currently a member of the U.S National PNT (Positioning Navigation and Timing) Advisory Board. He is employed in advanced engineering at John Deere's Intelligent Systems Group.
Ron Hatch doesn't dispute what demonhauntedworld said about clock speeds, in fact he confirms those are the effects we observe.

There is an alternative view:
Hatch didn't say what rest mass the photon would need to have in his theory, except to say that it changes as the photon travels down a gravitational gradient like from the GPS satellite to the Earth's surface, and since his paper wasn't published, I can't read that unless he posted a draft somewhere. So I can't say he's wrong, but hopefully his proposed values for photon rest mass don't contradict observation.
An interesting application of the study is to constrain the photon mass. Our study of a particular gravitational lens resulted in the limit m γ < 2.3 × 10 −9 eV (95% CL). This is not the best ever limit; however, it is the only existing photon-mass constraint relevant for distance scales larger than Galactic.
Why is it so important to some people that the sketchy "electric universe" notion be proven correct?
