91. A "Tornado" in Space [Thunderbolts Website]
... Day” (APOD) on Feb 3, 2006. The caption identifies this stellar jet as a “cosmic tornado” light-years in length, with gases moving at 100-kilometers per second. “Though such energetic outflows are well known to be associated with the formation of young stars, the exact cause of the spiralling structures apparent in this case is still mysterious”. In fact, astronomers express great astonishment at such formations. Gravitational models featured in twentieth century astronomy never envisioned narrow jets of anything streaming away from stellar bodies. Neither gravity nor standard gas laws would allow it. So the problem grows worse the more we discover. To see the problem clearly, just consider the language used to describe the stellar jets of “Herbig Haro objects” such as that imaged above. The words typically employed are taken from the behavior of wind and water on a rocky planet we call “Earth” a body that stands out as an exception in a universe that is 99.99 percent plasma and dominated by electric currents and their induced magnetic fields. A bizarre example ...

92. Response to Slabinski [Aeon Journal $]
... . So let us be sure the reader understands that the condition evaluated by Slabinski is the erroneous graphic, not the physical/mathematical model. (I trust the reader will also realize that, having worked with orbits professionally for some time, I am not unfamiliar with the paradox of the *accelerated* body taking more time to circle the Sun! The principle is inherent in *any* mathematical calculation of a binary system moving around the Sun.) This still leaves the question as to whether the gradient of the Sun's gravity, which would clearly distort the orbits of the Jovian planetary system, could destroy the equilibrium of the in-line condition. Though my thumbnail stability analysis had indicated there was little to fear in this respect, I decided to construct an independent computer simulation to examine the effect of the gravity gradient on the "stack" when the aligned planets are placed in the vicinity of Venus' orbit today. The first calculation included only Saturn, Jupiter, and the Sun. In this initial simulation the planets were set in a prograde orbit ...

93. Books Review [Aeon Journal $]
... which carries the fundamental unit of gravitational force. And, these hypothetical ultra-subnuclear particles-- these CGs-- appear to propagate independently of what is termed the light carrying medium, or LCM. This medium, in turn, is continuous throughout the universe, but where its density is altered by the proximity of matter. And, the matter ingredient, or MI, which comprises the smallest hypothetical constituent of a substance, is itself impervious to penetration by the C-gravitons, and these MIs can also eclipse the effects of CGs. Gravity itself has been assigned a limited range, although its velocity may be 20 times that of light and may indeed be nearly instantaneous. Here we have an alien and unfamiliar universe. And yet, this strange universe has overtones of familiarity about it, wherein relativity plays a lesser role by subjugating the velocity of light to the limitations of the light carrying medium. The graviton, not lightspeed, becomes the limiting velocity in the cosmos. This in total is a marvelous theoretical construct, and later on in his tome, Van ...

94. Redshift Anomalies [SIS Internet Digest $]
... advances since your publications is in the application of plasma physics to the problem of the source of galactic and stellar electrification. Also in the area of particle physics and challenges to Einstein's work, I follow as closely as I'm able the work of neo-classical physicists, particularly Ralph Sansbury of New York. I first met Ralph in London in 1981, after reading some of his work in 1980 and considering it to be of great importance. I had visited Velikovsky at his home in Princeton in 1979 and discussed with him the problem of gravity, since it was a major stumbling block to an acceptable dynamics to explain the rapid stabilisation of the planetary system after a catastrophic interlude. He was of the opinion that it was essentially a weak electric polarization of matter. Prescient as usual! Ralph's work seems to provide the link between electrostatics and gravity which makes the whole problem so simple it's almost laughable. He has quite a different approach to electromagnetic radiation from the usual and requires, I think, that the redshift is created at source because of the electrical/ gravitational ...

95. Stardust Shatters Comet Theory (3) [Thunderbolts Website]
... seeking to account for the composition of meteorites and did not find that its computer models worked for comets. Of course, it was just a computer simulation, and no doubt the input can be adjusted enough to achieve the desired results. The real problem is that the entire framework for rescuing the standard “big picture” is arbitrary. The reasoning begins with an electrically neutral universe, despite the rapidly accumulating evidence of electricity at every observable scale. It then seeks to create regional electric and magnetic fields through the paltry force of gravity. It thus keeps gravity in the driver s seat, and saves the cosmologists underlying equations for another day. But it requires them to ignore what the best experts on plasma and electricity in space have been telling us for too long now: Bi-polar nebulas show every expected feature of plasma discharge. The discharge is energized by vastly larger electric fields than could be generated by gravity acting on such a minimal scale. It is electric currents threading through the galaxy that provide the observed nebula energies, not mere particles of ...

96. Asteroid Itokawa [Thunderbolts Website]
... the best explanation for their origin is in a cosmic “lightning flash”. The velocity imparted to the excavated material will determine whether it becomes an asteroid or a comet. (The astronomer Tom Van Flandern has argued, on the basis of their orbital characteristics, that comets were formed by the explosion of a planet in the asteroid belt). Itokawa s density is said to be less than expected up to 39% empty space. So researchers concluded it is probably composed of smaller rocks that are held together by gravity. However, this conclusion rests on an untested assumption that the gravitational 'constant' we measure on Earth is the same for all other bodies. In fact, it doesn't seem to be constant on Earth! We have now seen many dark, rocky bodies in space have such low apparent densities that astronomers have been forced to conclude they are “mostly empty space”. But the electrical model of gravity suggests that if it looks like solid rock, it probably is solid rock. The internal electrical state of comets and meteorites ...

97. Seeing Electricity in Space [Thunderbolts Website]
... ve not thought about it when we re doing things in space. An electrical current is accompanied by a magnetic field that wraps around the current and gets weaker with distance from the current. With more charged particles moving in the same direction, and with moving faster, the magnetic field gets stronger. Again, this is a familiar thought when we re doing electrical things. But when astronomers discovered magnetic fields in space, they were surprised and mystified about how to explain them. They tried to conjure magnetism out of gravity and mass. Because the charged particles are moving through this magnetic field that gets stronger toward the axis of movement, particles that are not moving exactly along that axis are squeezed toward the axis. Plasma scientists call this the “pinch effect”. Outlying charged particles, together with the neutral atoms they bump into, are pulled into the current channel. Outlying areas are depleted and the channel gets denser. It self-constricts until the gas pressure on the inside balances the magnetic pressure on the outside. This balance of pressures along ...

98. A PERSONAL MEMOIR [Aeon Journal $]
... so. First, it is believed, by those who study this phenomenon, that space is filled with an energy field which is extremely large (estimated by Seike to be 800 million volts/cm). The characteristics of this field are such that it affects the speed of light which may vary as the field varies; hence the speed of light is not constant. Second, this field is also believed to be responsible for the phenomenon of gravitational acceleration. Newton acknowledged that the capability for a body to be accelerated by gravity was not a property of the body itself. Hans Nieper postulated, at his 1980 Hannover symposium, that "The shielding effect of a mass {from the Tachyon-Field} causes a second mass to be accelerated towards it. The gravity acceleration (Earth Attraction) is a thrust phenomenon and not an attraction phenomenon." (2) The idea of one mass shielding another from an energy-rich field in space goes back to the beginning of this century and was dealt with by physicists in the 20's and 30's. More recently ( ...

99. "Baked Galaxies," or Half-Baked Theories? [Thunderbolts Website]
... recent study from NASA s Spitzer Space Telescope “refining what is known” about dark matter, the so-called “essential ingredient of galaxies.” In the language of NASA scientists, dark matter s role in galaxy formation is comparable to the role of yeast in bread baking. An absence of enough dark matter means no loaf, e.g. no galaxy. Study co-author Dr. Jason Surace of NASA's Spitzer Science Center at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena says of this “baking” process, “Dark matter has gravity, so it pulls in more and more dark matter in addition to normal gas ...We know that the gas eventually condenses into the stars that make up galaxies, but the Spitzer study suggests that this doesn't happen until the dark matter has reached a critical mass." To Electric Universe proponents-- specialists such as electrical engineers and plasma physicists-- this kind of statement illustrates the seriousness of the 21st century crisis in cosmology. What astronomers envision as inert gas is ionized, radiating plasma, laced with electric ...
