Domina Eberle Spencer, born in 1920, came to MIT as a high school student in a summer program and stayed on to earn three degrees, her SB in Physics in 1939, SM in Mathematics in 1940, and PhD in Mathematics in 1942. A Professor of Mathematics at the University of Connecticut for the last half century, she has also taught at American University, Tufts, and Brown University. During the 1950s, Spencer co-authored a series of articles with Prof. Parry Moon (1898-1988) on electrodynamics and induction based on Ampere’s original force law, deriving results contrary to Einstein’s theory of relativity. The Moon and Spencer duo united their efforts through marriage, and went on to write several textbooks in the 1960s, including their unique and useful Field Theory Handbooks. After Moon’s death in 1988, semi-retired Spencer became very

active in alternative physics. She co-founded the Natural Philosophy Alliance (NPA) in 1993 and remains the organization’s president, having presented over 50 times at its annual meetings. At age 88, Spencer continues to develop her unique New Gaussian Electrodynamics, which operates without Einstein’s relativity. In all, she has authored a staggering 300 technical articles during her long career.

Peter Graneau was born March 21, 1921 in Lissau, Poland (in the German region) and earned both his BS (1955) and PhD (1962) from the University of Nottingham, England, where he still maintains his citizenship. Emigrating to the US in 1967, Graneau worked at Simplex Wire & Cable Co until 1971, when he became a research scientist at M.I.T. In the early 1980s, Graneau’s experiments with railguns led him to seek solutions based on Ampere’s original force law as an alternative to the unsatisfactory solutions of conventional electrodynamics. In 1985 he moved to Northeastern University, where he conducted some of his most significant experiments

before retiring in 1990. He proposed Amperian electrodynamics to explain longitudinal forces along the direction of current flow, and devised experiments to produce longitudinal explosions or arcs in water from these forces. Joined by his colleague and son Neal, Graneau has published dozens of articles and books demonstrating that Amperian action-at-a-distance mechanics explain many phenomena regarded as anomalies in mainstream science. Among the most interesting and incisive writers about the problems of contemporary physics today, their books include Newton versus Einstein (1993), Newtonian

Electrodynamics (1996), and In the Grip of a Distant Universe (2006). The Graneau team numbers among the several dissidents who have produced convincing experimental evidence contradictory to the predictions of Maxwell-Lorentz-Einstein electrodynamic theory. The series of experiments on water arcing, detailed in Unlimited Renewable Solar Energy from Water (2006), has profound implications in the field of New Energy. In his retirement, he continues to co-edit Infinite Energy magazine.

Georgia native Alexander “Alex” A. Scarborough, born May 15, 1923, earned BS degrees in Chemistry from the University of Georgia (1944) and in Chemical Engineering from Georgia Tech (1949). His career in Industrial Research and Development involved developing numerous patents and products, such as his durable double-density, washable Walk-Off mat, which spawned a multi-billion dollar international industry. In the 1960s, Scarborough began exploring the origin of gas, oil and coal in the earth, concluding a deep-earth source other than fossils. His revolutionary concepts of the earth’s interior led to his theory of expanding earth based on the expansion of matter via internal nucleosynthesis (E=mc2).

From this concept, he also developed an alternative to mainstream’s “Big Bang”, his LB/FLINE (Little Bangs/Five Laws of Planetary Motion-Internal Nucleosynthesis-Evolution) model that explains the unique spacing of our solar system’s planets.
