In the 1971 film 'Andromeda Strain', Dr. Charles Dutton draws a picture on the blackboard of a scientist examining a specimen under a microscope. A speech balloon from the slide says 'Take us to your leader". Although it's meant to be comical, this idea has led many thinkers, possibly yourself, to consider if life exists within the atomic scale. As children, many of us pictured atoms as tiny solar systems with electrons orbiting the nucleus. As we grew older and were taught more of the conventional theories about atoms, namely quantum mechanics, we were led to believe that atoms are nothing like tiny solar systems. This is what the conventional mainstream view of the atom tell us, but could these mainstream theories be wrong? What if the nature of atoms does actually resemble that of solar systems, and other astronomical phenomena?
The purpose of this site is to present a radical new theory of the atom, and to show the similarities between atoms and atomic phenomena to astrological bodies and their behavior. You may be thinking that this was already attempted and falsified in Bohr's solar system model. There is a enormous difference between Bohr's solar system and the AAM. Below are some of the main concepts of the AAM.
The Astro Atomic Model is a self-similar model.
Electrons within atoms are the analogue of planets within planetary systems.
Our own solar system is the analogue of the Hydrogen atom.
There is no concept of positive and negative charges of atomic particles.
Repulsive atomic, electric, and magnetic forces are an effect of attractive forces between atomic particles.
There are no 'point-like' particles. All particles have mass and dimension.
The orbital periods of the planets in our solar system did not form by chance.
The final state of planetary orbits in our solar system will be appropriate the orbital states of the planetrons within the hydrogen atom.
Although the AAM presents new radical ideas vastly different from the standard model and quantum mechanics, I do not seek to falsify or dispute the experimental results obtained by pioneers in the area of physics, but only present an alternative explanation of the experimental results. Some of these results date far back to the time when we were just learning about the atom. Thus, since many more conclusions were based off of these incorrect interpretations of early experiments, it compounded the mis-understanding of our ideas and concepts of the atom, and we wound up in the state we are in today. Since most of today's prevalent atomic theories are based on these assumptions, the theories try to find ways of dealing with inconsistencies and end up diverting from common sense more and more. The AAM is free from the confines of accepting these early interpretations as basic truths or laws, and with the alternate interpretations, present a much more intuitive theory for atomic phenomena.
