Before going into the story of cosmic ray muons, I suggest the readers to have a look at the following link to have a flavour of the stupidity of relativists. http://debunkingrelativity.com/2013/03/24/relativity-mania/
Cosmic ray muons or high energy muons are produced at about 16000 meters above the ground as cosmic radiation from outer space collides with the atoms of the Earth’s atmosphere. Apparently scientists have observed that significant numbers of these cosmic ray muons (which are produced in the upper crust of the Earth’s atmosphere) survive to reach to the ground level. In other words a significant proportion of cosmic muons are able to travel a distance of 16000 meters in their life span.
But scientists from their experiments on laboratory muons, swear that muons live for only about 2 microseconds and travel at a speed of 0.9c. So according to them, a muon can only travel about 600 meters in its life time. Then how could the cosmic ray muons, produced in the upper crust of the earth’s atmosphere, are able to travel a distance of 16000 meters and reach the ground?
The only possible explanation for this scenario according to the weird relativists is time dilation and length contraction.
But only science maniacs and relativity extremists will swear upon the above ‘facts’ on muon’s life span and speed and propose these highly counterintuitive notions like time dilation. Scientists have only noted the life span and speed of low energy muons produced in particle accelerators. How can the same be considered true for the high energy cosmic ray muons?
In fact, in the light of the above new findings why can’t we propose that muons can travel faster or live longer than what we knew of them?
Imagine that we have seen a boy traveling a distance of 100 meters in 20 seconds. We calculate his speed as 5 meters/sec. Now if we see his twin brother traveling 200 meters in 10 seconds, we wouldn’t say that the second boy has experienced time dilation or space contraction. Rather we would simply say that the second boy has run faster than the first boy. Or else we have to suspect that our measurement of time was not correct in one or the both scenarios. And same must be the case with the muons.
Relativists propose time dilation as if our knowledge about the life span and the speed of all muons is perfect and absolute. Under certain conditions (gravity, energy state, environment etc) why not a muon travel faster or live longer before it decays into the smaller particles.
Muon’s time dilation is only a calculated/predicted effect from the mathematics of relativity and hence can’t be accepted as a proof of relativity. That is, muon’s time dilation is what we would propose in the given scenario if the theory of relativity was correct. Relativists resort to circular logic here i.e. they believe that relativity is true, so they imagine time dilation as really happening for the cosmic muons and then they claim their imagination of time dilation as proof of relativity. Thus relativity stands proven for them. Like this relativity believers keep going in circles in every scenario that they claim as proof of relativity.
Why not the muons produced in the laboratory experience the same time dilation and length contraction if their speed was same as that of the cosmic ray muons? And if they did, why haven’t we seen the laboratory muons travel the same 16000 meters as their cosmic counter parts? And if they travelled 16000 meters distance in their life span of 2 microseconds, what would be their speed?
So it is just rubbish all the way down, not even tortoises! The tortoise model of the universe is much better than relativity.
Particles travelling in Storage Ring Accelerators
Apparently when muons were made to travel at a very high speed (0.99c) in a large diameter ring accelerator at Brookhaven, they apparently experienced time dilation as exactly predicted by special relativity. And recently, scientists have apparently observed the same thing happening with lithium ions travelling in storage ring accelerators. http://www.nature.com/news/special-relativity-aces-time-trial-1.15970
But muons travelling in circular orbits are actually in accelerated motion and not in uniform motion. We know that according to the religion of relativity, SR applies to particles in uniform motion and GR for particles in accelerated motion. (Some physics ‘pastors’ use circular motion to ‘illustrate’ the effects of GR: The Elegant Universe by Brain Greene). So if the stupid theory of relativity were to be correct, the particles travelling in ring accelerators must have experienced time dilation as predicted by general relativity but not special relativity.
