Robert was a contributor to this group years ago. I remembered him when
reading a Phys.org, article, and I wanted to contact him his email
Then, I learned that he passed away on Aug 2021.
If I remember correctly, he proposed that stars have masses of multiples
of a constant value. He was much decried here, and he left.
The article I read was:
From that article:
"Our work shows that the very early theories of Jacob Bekenstein---American
and Israeli theoretical physicist who made fundamental contributions
to the foundation of black hole thermodynamics---were on the money,"
"He postulated that black holes can only have masses that are of certain
values, that is, they must fall within certain bands or ratios---this is
how energy levels of an atom works, for example.
"Our modeling showed that these superposed masses were, in fact, in
certain determined bands or ratios---as predicted by Bekenstein.
I do not know if Mr Oldershaw's theories will be right, the future will
