Professor Brian Schmidt is an astronomer at the Australian National University. He and his colleagues wrote a paper which was published in the Astrophysical Journal in 2002 wherein they claimed the existence of a black hole close binary system in Nova Scorpii. I wrote to Schmidt about his paper but he did not address the issues raised in my email and in his reply refused to discuss the matters I raised despite the fact that no mathematics at all is required to discuss the issues. Schmidt is a joint winner of the Nobel Prize for physics in 2011.
