On a final note, a have proven the Nobel / Breakthrough Prizes are actually counterproductive and slow human evolution down because of the following relation:
mainstream^5 * n_phd * n_np * n_bp

Where:
n_phd = number of new physics PhD per year
n_np = number of years since the dawn of the Nobel Prize
n_bp = number of years since the dawn of the Breakthrough Prize

Now in 2022 it's mathematically impossible to undo that mess and not worth the efforts.

I have also mathematically proven the sole purpose of the Kavli / Perimeter Institutes, the Snolab, Xenon lab, ... is to increase our deficit to benefit the Central Banks slowly but surely.
You think science hasn't been 'productive' since 1895?

Though it'd be a universe where gravity worked rather differently.

This is not a relation. It does not show an equality or any other relationship between anything and anything else. It's only some various quantities multiplied together. One of those quantities, "mainstream," is undefined and lacks units.

How does any of that answer my question about the productivity of science over the last 100 years?

Have we proved that a graviton is a particle using an iPhone yet? Looking forward to the definitive answer.

Actually it also proves that there is graviton attenuation down to 80% but I'll have to run the same script on a larger data set to verify its consistency.

You continue to avoid providing any sort of proof of your claims. What was your Google search, and the Python script you applied to it, and what was the results you obtained? I am not simply interested in what you think the results mean; I and others (I am sure) would like to see the raw information from which you drew your conclusions.

Show your work. Let's see the script and the data set, and explain how your got the data set too.

For a person who claims to make all his knowledge public, as per the quote below, philippeb8 seems strangely reluctant to make his knowledge public.

I'll post the link one more time but if I see you guys intentionally confuse everything I say then I'll leave for good. Because if I stay here that means I contribute to your ATMer defamation agenda, despite taking the time to warn you everything is clear to me.

Here's the data and the script:
https://github.com/philippeb8/microgal

The images are based on the following experiment:
http://cpb.iphy.ac.cn/article/2015/c...f8_hr.png.html

And Fig S5 below confirms other experiments all return similar sinusoidal residuals:
https://arxiv.org/pdf/1904.09084.pdf

The sinusoidal residual means that at 6 pm and 6 am, when the gravimeter is perfectly perpendicular to the Sun, it measures the highest discrepancy between what is predicted and what is measured. And this is very consistent.

The graviton attenuation is the ratio of the measured residual at 12 am and 12 pm which gets us 80%. But again, this will need to be confirmed with a larger data set.

And yet, despite not taking your brilliance into account, we can get spaceships to land exactly where we want, even after they take slingshots around Jupiter.

In your universe Jupiter would massively interfere with the Sun's gravitons and thus the path of a spaceship would differ from one that does not take that into account.

The difference may be small, but space is big, so it would be enough to make things completely miss their intended targets.

They don't. So the odds of you being right are quite small.

Quoted from that paper, with my highlighting:

As shown in Fig. 2C and 2D, the ocean tidal loading leads to the peaks in the Allan deviation and the power spectral density in a period-band between 6-24 hours....

....Because the local gravity is affected by the tidal effects, the inaccurate tide model at our location constrains the accuracy of the long-term stability measurement and the systematic effect evaluation. A gravity comparison at a geophysical observatory would allow us to characterize them more accurately (34). With these improvements, a more accurate measurement of the ocean tidal loading effect may be useful....
Figure S5 compares "measured gravity and the solid-earth tide model", without correcting for ocean tidal loading, so the residuals seen in Figure S5 are explained quite well by the correlation shown in Figure 2B.

It is common knowledge the residual is sinusoidal:

The ocean loading is a consequence of the Earth's tides anyways.

Furthermore let's not silently dismiss the flyby anomalies.

You really have trouble staying on point, don't you?

W.D.Clinger made a claim, a claim you seemed to want to discount, but ended up just supporting. Are we done with that, or do you have other non sequiturs to introduce?

So you are just proving you tend to silently dismiss important facts such as the flyby anomaly that is apparently explained by a dark matter cloud surrounding the Earth. Seriously?

Anyway my point was the ocean loading is affected by the Moon and the Sun but doesn't change the overall Earth gravitational acceleration because the overall mass doesn't change.

I prove nothing of the sort. You continue to flutter from topic to topic without completing one before interjecting the next.

But that wasn't the point in W.D.Clinger's post, now was it? Let's close out that item, shall we? And then you can move to a new (singular) next point.

The 3 experiments I've presented are not all next to the ocean. Even if they were then in what way should it change the Earth's gravitational acceleration? It's not worth the efforts to calculate that because it's obvious.

If the right to existence is conceded to new-born children, then they have the right; if it is not conceded to them, as was the case among the Spartans and ancient Romans, then they do not have it. For only society can give or concede it to them; they themselves cannot take it, or give it to themselves.

I suggest that you produce those force fields, those tractor beams, and those anti-gravity devices that you said you could produce and then you would no longer have to produce replies.

Great!

By producing those tractor beams, those force fields, and those anti-gravity devices you will become the richest person in all of human history.

As such, you will no longer have to respond to anyone that you do not wish to respond to.

As for me, I sure am looking forward to getting those force fields, tractor beams and anti-gravity devices that 'philippeb8' will be producing.

I install the anti-gravity device on my car so that it will float about 50 cm or so about the road,
then I will use the tractor beam to be pulled along by vehicles which are travelling more or less my way,
then I will use the force fields to protect my modified vehicle from getting dirty and/or theives,
and if necessary, I will use the car in a conventional way.

Just think of all the gas money, oil change money, tire money, and so on that I will be saving.

Woo hoo!

With all of this savings, then I will finally be able to buy my own Girl Scout cookies.

I consider the lack of 3D spatial reasoning to be one of the reasons why the flat earth wingnuts exist along with some other reasons.
