Large Discrepancies in the Astronomy Literature

Many thanks for these data. I will calculate the periastron advance using them and the eccentricity from the Stanford site, because Wikipedia apparently does not give it. It is cited with great precision on the Stanford site. I can see that these data will not make much difference because the periastron advance from the Einstein theory will still be far too large. This is what was needed to dispel the Einstein mythology, sets of data that completely refute the theory.

The values cited in the Wikipedia article are quite different to them of Stanford:

  • Mass of companion: 1.387 M
  • Total mass of the system: 2.828378(7) M☉ => mass of pulsar = 1.44 M
  • Semi-major axis: 1,950,100 km
  • Periastron separation: 746,600 km
  • Apastron separation: 3,153,600 km

The semi major axis in the Stanford article for example is much larger than the value you obtained from the light seconds value (702 234 km). I used the values of the Wikipedia article for the orbit calculation. When using the initial value pairs
(r0=periastron, v0=450 750 m/s)
(r0=apastron, v0=106 718 m/s)
one arrives at the other value each after half an orbit. This is correct, however the orbit period is about 55 000 sec which is wildly wrong, compared to experimental 7.75 h = 7.75*3600 s = 27910 s. Or is there a factor of 1/2 missing anywhere?

Using data from the site:

at Stanford it is shown straightforwardly that the Enstein theory is wildly wrong, it gives a precession of 17,891 degrees per earth year, compared with an observed precession of 4.2 degrees per year. The Einstein precession is calculated using the mass of the companion star and the half right latitude of the pulsar’s orbit. This can be calculated from the semi major axis and eccentricity given on the Stanford site. The initial conditions for the solution of the new lagrangian approach (Eq. (29)) are:

r(0) = periastron = 2.6885 ten power eight metres

and the orbital velocity at the periastron:

v(0) = 1.061 ten power five metres per second

calculated from the Stanford data using Eq. (4). There is a huge discrepancy between the Stanford and Cornell data on orbital velocity at the periastron, a factor of three. So I advise using data from the Stanford site. So there can be no confidence whatsoever in claims that the Einstein theory is always precise, and it should be replaced by ECE2 theory.
