... suggested lightning in the accretion disk as an explanation for chondrules, but without understanding what causes lightning the idea died. The May 17 issue of New Scientist reports a new idea from astrophysicist Frank Shu. He argues that meteorites were formed in "furious winds that blew red- hot rock out from the Sun at hundreds of kilometres per second." Lightning creates just such "furious winds" of heated matter along the discharge channel. Shu's explanation, on the other hand, suffers the usual lack of understanding of plasma electrical behavior ... :4 THOTH A Catastrophics Newsletter VOL VII, No 4 June 15, 2003 EDITOR: Amy Acheson PUBLISHER: Michael Armstrong LIST MANAGER: Brian Stewart CONTENTS WHAT MOVES?................

132. Darkness and the Deep [Aeon Journal $]
... not more massive, than Jupiter, at a time when the luminary was on the verge of exploding into a veritable sun, the Earth may in fact have been warmer on its facing hemisphere than it is today. Describing the primeval Saturn as "the smallest possible red dwarf star or a brown dwarf star" in its death throes, Hall assumed that, for eons, the giant planet "had sustained by radiant energy the spark of life" on Earth. (141) So, similarly, but without considering the prevailing ... fundamentals, based on specific proposals offered by others, are here accepted, but also tested against the record. First among these proposals is one which was originally offered by Immanuel Velikovsky in 1971 concerning the possibility that Earth had at one time been a satellite of the planet Saturn. (1) Actually, a similar, if more bizarre, idea that proposes the Earth to be "an offspring of Saturn" was aired as long ago as 1884 by Oskar Reichenbach (2) as part of a theory purporting to prove that ...

... the Devi cut off his trunk with her sword. The great asura then resumed his buffalo shape and shook the three worlds with their movable and immovable objects. Enraged thereat, (the Devi) quaffed a divine drink again and again and laughed, her eyes becoming red. And the asura also roared, intoxicated with his strength and valour, and hurled mountains against the Devi with his horns. And she with showers of arrows pulverized (those mountains) hurled at her and spoke to him in flurried words... The ... From: Kronos Vol. II No. 1 (August 1976) Home¦ Issue Contents Devi And Venus Artur Isenberg INTRODUCTION In Worlds in Collision, Immanuel Velikovsky writes: "In every country of the ancient world we can trace cosmological myths of the birth of the planet Venus. If we look for the god or goddess who represents the planet Venus, we must inquire which among the gods or goddesses did not exist from the beginning, but was born into the family."(1) Elsewhere in the same work, ...

... and "reunion" with Venus. [55 Insofar as the latter planet was identified with the great mother goddess, the Martian hero was viewed as having returned to the celestial lap or "breast" as an infant. A complementary and equally widespread interpretation viewed the red planet as an embryo reinserted within the "womb" of Venus (see Figure Six), whereupon it awaited "rebirth." Insofar as the celestial spring was centered upon Venus, the hero's ascent and reunion with Venus necessarily involved his reaching the celestial spring ... the Milky Way, doubtless on account of her intimate association with the heavenly rivers and their source. [9 Hertha von Dechend offered a similar opinion. [10 Yet in the fifth chapter of the Bundahishn, a Zoroastrian Creation text, Anahita is identified with the planet Venus. The same identification is also attested in later Persian sources and would appear to reflect astronomical knowledge current in Middle Persian times under the Sassanids (c. AD 226-640). [11 As to the antiquity of this system, B. L. van ...

... was stranded in the belt with no other left to nudge it into resonance. In the other half, all embryos were ejected, leaving the belt empty save a little rubble; these simulations usually yielded a fourth planet twice the size of Mars, indicating that the red planet was 'unlucky' to get so little material, or that the model is less than fully adequate. Because in half the simulations the time to expel the last embryo was infinite, in some of the other 50% the time to expel the last embryos ... asteroid belt.

... - along with various others, such as the fact that Venus showed phases like the Moon- and he published these in the form of anagrams. Kepler, his friend, tried to decipher them, and managed to decipher one as: "Jupiter has a great red spot on it." This was a little premature: it wasn't discovered for another two centuries. Another one he tried to decipher he deciphered as: "The planet Mars has two moons." Again, he was a little premature: these weren't discovered ... of Gravitation and Newton's three laws of motion. Kepler himself had discovered those laws by trial and error over twenty years of work, by taking the observations of the great Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe. Very fortunately, among those observations were many of the positions of the planet Mars, which moves in a decidedly elliptical orbit. Kepler himself, in deducing his three laws of planetary motion- every planet moves in an ellipse with the Sun at one focus; the radius vector joining planet to Sun sweeps out equal areas in equal time ...

... am calling the "Radiant Venus" appear to relate directly to that condition. I think we will want to take the time to consider a wide range of variations on the underlying idea. Then there is the issue of planetary colors. The illustrations show Mars as red because that is the color it acquires. I've not found much to suggest that Mars possessed this attribute in the earliest phase. It's in connection with specific events that a deep rusty red comes to dominate. I've presumed, tentatively, that this reddening was related ... the mutual associations of these symbols with the long-flowing, disheveled hair of the angry goddess, the goddess who rages in the sky in the form of a serpent or dragon at the time of a world-ending disaster-- the angry goddess who just happens to be the planet Venus?

Garry Hunt wrote an article on Jupiter shortly after the Pioneer 10 measurements had been reported (5). Here are some quotations from it: "Sporadically, the planet emits great electromagnetic bursts equivalent in energy to those of thermonuclear devices." "One of the most intriguing discoveries of the Jovian environment which Pioneer 10 unveiled concerns bursts of relativistic electrons apparently ejected by Jupiter. These bursts were first detected more than six months before ...

... the larger region at a higher resolution (image available here). The extraordinary image, in false color, gives important information on the relative “hardness” of different surface areas. “Hardness” is deduced from overnight surface temperatures, the warmer temperatures indicated in red, and the cooler ones indicated in blue. In explaining this technique, the authors of the THEMIS site note, “The technique works because areas mantled in dust cool off quickly after sundown, while rocks hold onto daytime heat much better.” Applying this ... subject abstracts False color image of the floor of Rabe Crater on Mars, taken by the Mars Odyssey Mission ’ s THEMIS (Thermal Emission Imaging System). Nov 29, 2006 The “Dunes” of Rabe Crater Nothing is more ubiquitous on the surface of the planet Mars than vast ridge and valley networks that planetary scientists typically identify as “dunes.” But electrical theorists predict that the more scientists learn about these formations, the less plausible the traditional explanations will become. To appreciate the significance of the image above, the ...

... hypothetical passenger landing with the probes on the surface (where the temperature is about 453 C -( 847 F) would find only 10 per cent of non-reflected sunlight reaching him and could not tell where the sun was located in the sky. As only the longest red wavelengths travel any distance through this atmosphere (91 times as dense as the atmosphere at the Earth's surface), he would find the illumination to be red, with much refraction and distortion of landmarks. With visibility in the dense carbon dioxide atmosphere at about 3 ... greenhouse effect", displacing the competing theory of heat circulation from the top of the atmosphere down. In the greenhouse effect, solar radiation enters the atmosphere relatively easily, but is re-radiated into space as heat only with great difficulty. The trapped radiation heats up the planet and its atmosphere. Of Venus' total incoming sunlight, about 75 per cent is reflected back to space by the Venus clouds and dense atmosphere. Of the remaining 25 per cent that penetrates Venus, about 60 per cert is absorbed in clouds, 15 percent ...
