11. Projecting Nuclear Fusion onto the Sun [Thunderbolts Website]
... subject index abstract archive Links: Holoscience Electric Cosmos The Universe Plasma Cosmology Society for Interdisciplinary Studies educational resources Aeon Journal May 19, 2005 Projecting Nuclear Fusion onto the Sun What is the source of the Sun s light and heat? Throughout history people have proposed answers to this question that have always reflected human experience. The Sun was a shining god or a “spark” cast off in the creation. Later it was a pile of burning sticks or coal. By the nineteenth century, astronomers had become accustomed to thinking that gravity was the dominant force in the heavens. So they began to conjecture that the energy of the Sun might be due to “gravitational collapse”, a compression of solar gases by gravity. This simple hypothesis, its proponents claimed, could provide the required energy output for a few tens of millions of years. By the late 19 th century, however, geologists were confident that Earth was much older than the astronomers model would allow, and the conflict between astronomy and geology continued for several decades. Then, in ...

12. Comments on Electric Stars [SIS Internet Digest $]
... Therefore we don't know the true volume of the sun, nor the surface temperature as required by the perfect gas theory. As for the calculations about the density of the sun- which is proportional to its mass- which in turn is determined by the measured gravitational attraction of the sun for the Earth, I believe we have a problem there too. As I mentioned in a more recent post, "our physics is lacking in some crucial areas." To put it bluntly, I do not believe that Einstein's view of gravity as curved space is correct or even helpful. There is an alternative classical model which shows great promise and relates the inertial and gravitational mass to induced electrostatic dipoles in nucleons. That means that the gravitational "constant', G, is neither constant nor universal. If that is so, we do not know the mass of the sun either! Since we don't know the mass or volume of the sun, we cannot determine its density. It is clear then that we can say little about the solar interior conditions. ...

14. Impossible Dinosaurs [Thunderbolts Website]
... became too big to lift his own weight. Strength, in its relationship with weight, imposes a limit on size. Holden's calculations indicate that the heaviest elephants of today approach that limit. The largest dinosaurs are many times the size of an elephant. And dinosaur skeletons aren't as well-designed for bearing weight as elephant skeletons. Dinosaurs are impossibly large for planet Earth, but their bones are proof that they must have existed. How could that be? The limit on size depends on weight, and weight depends on the force of gravity. Most conventional theories assume that gravity throughout the universe has always been and will always be a constant property of matter. But that's only an assumption, and it must be verified empirically. The Electric Universe offers a different point of view. Gravity is not a constant. It's a variable that depends on the plasma environment. So Earth in the Mesozoic Era may have had less gravity than it has today. Holden calculates that in order for the largest dinosaurs to function, gravity must have been at least 1/3 ...

They have observed anti-gravity in action and say they have confirmed that the expansion of the universe is accelerating.

... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 62: Mar-Apr 1989 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects More challenges to newton's law of gravitation Two experiments reported at the 1988 meeting of the American Geophysical Union in San Francisco can be added to the others that question Newton's venerable Law of Gravitation. The abstracts of these papers are short and to-the-point, so we quote them: "We have performed an experimental test of Newton's inverse-square law of gravitation. The test compared accurately measured gravity values along the 600 m WTVD tower near Raleigh, North Carolina, with upward, continued gravity estimates calculated from ground measurements. We found a significant departure from the inverse-square law, asymptotically approaching -547 36 microGal at the top of the tower. If this departure is derived from a scalar Yukawa potential, the coupling parameter is alpha= 0.023, the range is lambda= 280 m, and the Newtonian Gravitational Constant is G= (6.52 0.01) x 10 11 m 3 kg -1 s -2. We do not yet have adequate resolution ...

18. Eros so Much Rock So Little Gravity [SIS Internet Digest $]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 2000:2 (Dec 2000) Home¦ Issue Contents Eros so Much Rock So Little Gravity CCNet, 25 May 2000 Mystery of tiny asteroid Eros-- so much rock but so little gravity-- detailed in Science report ITHACA, N.Y.-- How could something so small have so much debris lying around? That is the puzzle presented by asteroid 433 Eros in the first major reports on the composition and history of the 21-mile-long body, the solar system's first asteroid to be subjected to close study. Writing in the latest edition of the journal Science (Sept. 22), Joseph Veverka of Cornell University describes tiny Eros as having a surface "saturated" with tiny craters smaller than 1 kilometer (0.6 miles) in diameter and "abundant" with rocks 30 to 100 meters (33 to 109 yards) across. The craters and the boulders, says Veverka, indicate many violent collisions with the asteroid over time. But the gravity on Eros is so weak "that intuition and calculation tell you that most ...

19. Our Universe: Unlocking its Mysteries [SIS Internet Digest $]
... Interacting Plasmas: Many skeptics say that there is no mechanism that could have circularized the wildly divergent paths of the planets that were ejected from the polar configuration. Electrical Engineer, Donald Scott, points out that plasma physics shows us that planets can interact electrically if they are within each other's protective plasma sheaths (magnetospheres). Electrical repulsion that is alternatively felt (when planets' plasma sheaths intersect) and then not felt (when the sheaths do not intersect) could circularize orbits relatively quickly. In addition there is strong evidence that gravity and mass itself is dependent on electrical charge. Dinosaurs Are Impossible in Today's Gravity: Another question that relates to the enigma of how Earth is different today from ancient times is the size of the giant dinosaurs. Ted Holden concludes that, given what we now know about mass to muscle ratio, there is no way those huge beasts could have held their heads up, much less walked, in the gravity that we have at present. Could a different planetary arrangement and/or electrical charge on Earth have provided the decreased ...

... it to the bank that intrinsic redshift is electrical in nature since it relies on lower orbital energies of electrons to give the desired effect. I think the story goes something like this: If we assume that the charge of an electron and proton always remains the same it means that their effective inertial mass must be lower. If we take Sansbury's model of electrons and protons- being composed of smaller orbiting charges- then it means that the electrons and protons are subject to a lower ambient polarizing electrostatic force- in other words, gravity. That is borne out by the high initial velocity and subsequent slowing of quasars as their redshift falls. Herbig-Haro objects should show the same effects because in both cases I think that the plasma focus (PF) effect, that spits out jets and quasars. I believe that the PF traps the much lighter electrons for a time after the main ejection event. Also, many of the protons are released from the PF in the form of an intense beam of neutrons which subsequently decay into protons and electrons plus a great shower ...
