141. Thoth Vol. II, No. 11 June 30, 1998 [Thoth Website]
... particular figures with the planet Mars. Similarly, even if one grants the possibility that Heracles and Indra are mythical twins, each modeled upon the planet Mars, it is always possible that some other explanation besides that of the polar configuration can be found to explain the red planet's peculiar mythical prominence (that of Velikovsky or de Santillana and von Dechend, for example). Although a satisfactory analysis of a particular myth necessarily involves completion of each of these three steps, in actual practice-as in psychoanalysis-one rarely achieves a complete or perfect analysis ... ) the demonstration of parallels between the myths and mythical characters of different cultures; (2) the identification of various mythical characters with the respective planetary bodies (or in some cases, as in that of the Babylonian Sin, with some property of this or that planet); and (3) a reconstruction of the celestial scenario behind the respective myths-specifically, an analysis of the unique behavior or visual phenomena associated with the planets which gave rise to the particular myths/characters in question. Although each of the three components should ...
142. Titan - The Enigma (2) [Thunderbolts Website]
... matter of a star or gas giant in a tremendous "flare." The rings we see around the gas giant planets are evidence of former episodes of expulsion, not accretion. The rings of Saturn are the most recent. It is important to note that flaring red dwarf stars are extremely common and are an unexplained phenomenon. Red dwarf flares are like a stellar lightning flash but they may produce 10,000 times as many x-rays as a comparable flare on the Sun. The electric discharge model would have profound effects on the ... explained if most of the atmosphere had evaporated into space, a process in which the nitrogen-14 would have escaped more easily than nitrogen-15. But it would mean that Titan once had an atmosphere 40 times as thick as Earth's- making it a dwarf version of a gas planet. 'This bizarre world may be far more complex that we have begun to imagine,' says Larry Soderblom of the US Geological Survey in Flagstaff, Arizona. The striking disparity in nitrogen isotopes is telling us something about the way planetary atmospheres are formed rather than ...
143. The Core Ejection Hypothesis [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... of space, contrary to Crew, could not prevent this because the sparks would ionise Cosbod and its atmosphere in order to allow a discharge path. Finally, Crew develops his model as though the ejection occurs at the equator. However, he claims that Jupiter's Great Red Spot is an ejection site, which happens to be located at 20 S latitude. He prefers Jupiter to Saturn as the source of Cosbod because Jupiter's equator is inclined only 3 compared with 27 for Saturn, thereby ignoring the actual location of the Great Red Spot ... the ejecta to nearly circular terrestrial ones. This entire process is quite impossible and its initiation is precluded by a very simple fact of Nature that Crew refuses to acknowledge. Crew claims that core ejection is facilitated by pressure ionisation producing a positively charged body inside a gaseous planet. He is quite mistaken on this point. All that pressure ionisation does is produce a metallic state in materials which under normal conditions have their electrons confined in a crystal lattice. In the metallic state, the electrons are free to circulate. However, the ...
144. A New Class Of Solar System Objects [Science Frontiers Website]
... theoreticians have confirmed that the line of reasoning leading to the suggestion of such a belt is spurious. That fact, combined with the absence of any comet-like characteristics in these two new objects, their relative size as compared with any other known comet, and their unusually red coloration, seem to make them the first-discovered members of a new class of solar system bodies. Since the searches leading to their discovery have examined only 1.5 out of tens of thousands of square degrees of sky wherein such objects might be discovered, it seems a ...

... shape of the region of the Beth Shan Valley, stretching from the Jordan towards the Esdraelon Valley, makes the flow of the Jordan into the Mediterranean a far more acceptable conjecture than a presumed flow of the Jordan over the slopes of the mountain of Hor into the Red Sea.

... Sun a Companion Star?" asked E. R. Harrison (1977). He wonders whether a slight acceleration of the solar system detected by pulsar observations may be due to an orbiting binary partner. "The companion star is presumably either a faint white or red dwarf in closed orbit around the Sun, or a gas-accreting nearby neutron star or black hole in open orbit." [6 Harrison adduces Oort to say that a cloud of comets extends a distance of about 10 5 A. U. and this, he ... in the Sun as an accumulator and discharger of electricity. THE BINARY PARTNER Like the Sun Super-Uranus was a charged gas cloud with a high density but volatile core. It might have contained about 4% of the mass of Solaria Binaria. It was not unlike the planet Jupiter of today, save that it was radiant and may have carried much more water in its high clouds. Indeed, on occasion, Jupiter has been termed a defunct or vestigial binary. Super-Uranus could not be seen by the hominids of Earth, or by ...

As it turns out, one of these rocks almost certainly came from the planet Mars, nearly 50 million miles away. The difficulty in dislodging a meteorite from the red planet, much less transporting one to Earth, has prompted several noted authorities to doubt their Martian origin. The meteorite's chemical imprint, however, not unlike the DNA- evidence in a murder trial, leaves little doubt about its place of origin. Nor did ... AEON: Vol IV No 2, pg 57-73.
