Dark matter Illusion - Hey! Where is MY validation?

Dark Matter Is an Illusion, New Antigravity Theory Says
National Geographic News

Is there some reason the scientific community doesn't review the web before they publish?

Splashed all over national Geographic News, this guy Dragan Hajdukovic essentially publishes the tenants of my paper, "Can Gravity be Induced? without so much as a nod of recognition, yet such concepts would not even be considered today were it not for my thirty years of work I have dedicated the subject.

Simply put, my concept of the induction of gravity is being railroaded.
I admit it is easy to do. I am not affiliated with the science community, my training is in fine Art. My idea, "Can Gravity be Induced?" (1979) was distributed to friends and colleges in the science community 1979. It was considered so absurd that it was deemed "fringe science" by the science community.
Nonetheless, if you type "Can Gravity be Induced?" and "Stephen Goodfellow" into a Google search engine, you will find about 3,160 results. Is my work really that hard to find? I have been active, interacting with plasma physicists for thirty years. Just because my concept was not deemed worthy of publication in a scientific journal does not mean that it is not valid. Thanks to the web, I was able to place my paper very early on, for all who wished to see.

If you need a specific entry that addresses this specific issue, you will find my comments on the Dark Matter illusion here on my blog May 6th, 2010, "Further thoughts on the Induction of Gravity" which states,

Dark energy: Particles in intergalactic space reach exceedingly high speeds and on those rare occasions when they collide, these produce temperatures of millions of degrees. At the moment of collision, a tiny amount of gravity/non-space is momentarily produced but collapses immediately, lacking any means of sustaining itself. However, by virtue of the volume of colliding particles over vast regions of space, a 'field' of gravity is maintained. Might this not explain the phenomenon that we call 'dark energy'?

Looking through the notes of his paper, I see no references to my work. You might say it is just sour grapes on my behalf, and you'd be correct. I have been espousing the induction of gravity over span of three decades and delineating how it comes about, together with suggested empirical, repeatable laboratory experiment.

I have already had to deal with a previous episode in which a Russian scientist actually accused me of stealing his work. Turns out he published in 1995, sixteen years after my paper and eight years after I had placed it on the CompuServe system, which ultimately was placed on the web. Easy to find, just didn't bother looking.

When it comes to a modern interpretation of the Induction of gravity, at least have the courtesy to give a nod to the grandfather.

Somewhat pissed off,
Stephen Goodfellow
