Photons are created in the inner 2/3 radius of the Sun from fusion as extremely high energy photons. They travel for hundreds of years, if not more, until they gradually lose energy from interactions and finally escape as the low energy photons that reach Earth. They are not “created” at the Photosphere of the Sun.
Photons do not travel from the Sun to the Earth in the same “instance”. That’s ridiculous. Photons do not experience time because time does not exist at the speed of light. To a photon there are no “instances”. If there were, photons would travel from the Sun to the Earth at infinite speed. In physics, infinite does not exist.
I’ve seen so many instances of Tyson making basic mistakes it makes me wonder how he ever graduated from high school. He claims to be an astrophysicist and yet he has never worked at that job. I suspect he was given his PhD to get rid of him.
In any case, he’s not where you should get your information.
Playing for Change series. some of the best recordings ever made. Here’s a couple.
Taylor Momson. The Pretty Reckless. I keep coming back to this band. Miss Momson is known for her clothes, eye makeup, and sun glasses. And her acting (The Gossip Girl, Grinch), singing, and song writing. And she was a model …
The Pretty Reckless is one of the best RnR bands ever. It doesn’t hurt that Taylor Momson is the lead singer. New album sometime in 2020/21. The following is a full acoustic concert. It’s easy to find their full RnR stuff on YouTube.
Candy Dulfer – Lily Was Here: Written by Dave Stewart (of Eurythmics fame) for the movie “De Kassiere” and for Candy Dulfer (she’s Swiss and the daughter of a famous saxophone player). She’s the world’s best sax player. This may be the best jazz song ever written. Music doesn’t get any better. Sexy VEVO version is HERE. Many other sax players have attempted this song and failed miserably.
Jorja Chalmers: Saxophone player. She’s from Australia. She was about to become a music teacher when someone got Bryan Ferry to listen to her and he hired her to tour the world.
Gary Moore – Still Got The Blues: It’s impossible to say how good this is. The best version he ever did. The 2nd half is the best rock guitar performance ever recorded.
Santana – Soul Sacrifice Woodstock 1969: What humans on LSD are capable of doing. Santana said he’d never again play on LSD. Too bad. This is Santana at it’s best. The drummer is flying high. This requires good headphones.
Stevie Ray Vaughan – Love Struck Baby / Pride and Joy / Testify – 9/21/1985: Airplanes are no friend of music. He died too young. Guitar just flowed from him. How did he do it? The guy playing the Yamaha keyboard isn’t too shabby. “I am 72 and have seen and listened to a lot of music but I have never seen or heard anyone in rock, blues, jazz or classical music play with this kind of fluency”
Bob Dylan San Francisco Press Conference 1965: Just the idea of a Dylan press conference is ludicrous. “Mr. Dylan is a poet”? The reporters have no idea who Dylan is. Dylan is sitting there making everyone look like idiots. Just like he made a fool of Baez. Dylan’s answers come from the same source as his songs, they’re real and honest but the people listening aren’t understanding what he’s saying.
MILES DAVIS – Time After Time: Jazz is boring because most jazz musicians just play the notes. They’re very good playing those notes but that’s all it is. Miles Davis did more, especially after he matured and gave up all the old jazz. See Candy Dulfer if you want to hear what a real musician can do with a saxophone.
MILES DAVIS – Tomaas: Too bad he never played with Candy Dulfer. But I doubt he could have kept up with her.
RAIN is Ride Across INdiana. A 162 mile bike ride in 95 degree sun. Images are HERE.
A friend of mine did this ride, all they way to the end. You can find him with the red shoes and yellow shirt. I say “friend” but would a real friend get you involved in something this insane? RAIN should be RA-INsane.
There were many more men entered than women which just goes to show that women are more sane than men.
