31. Another “Double-Eye” of Venus [Thunderbolts Website]
... home updates news and views picture of the day resources team a role for you contact us picture of the day archive subject index subject abstracts These images from an ESA Venus Express movie of cloud movements around Venus s south pole capture a “peculiar double-eye vortex structure, never clearly seen by any other Venusian mission before.” Credit: ESA/Venus Express Jul 17, 2006 Another “Double-Eye” of Venus Twin footprints of electric currents from space are apparent at Venus south pole counterparts to the footprints earlier discovered at Venus north pole. The frames of the movie shown above depict the main features of an extraordinary phenomenon on Venus a “double-eye atmospheric vortex over the south pole.” The movie shows the rotation and the shape variation of the double vortex from April 12 to April 19. The images also show the presence of a collar of colder air around the vortex structure (dark blue), which ESA scientists describe as “possibly due to the recycling of cold air downwards.” In 1978 the Pioneer Venus Orbiter had ...

... From: Kronos Vol. V No. 1 (Fall 1979) Home¦ Issue Contents Heat Transfer Models, Hothouse Calculations, and the Temperature of Venus George Robert Talbott It is universally accepted that heat energy in substantial quantity is present at the surface of Venus. Equally acceptable is the thesis that some of the Sun's energy is absorbed by Venus' thick cloud layer, while the majority incident at the cloud surface is reflected away The controversy is concerned with whether or not absorbed sunlight can account for a surface temperature of 750 Kelvin. Thus the following questions may be posed: How much sunlight is reaching the surface through the clouds? What is the load in watts per square centimeter of surface, given the amount absorbed by each layer of the atmosphere? Take the usual case in which the source of radiation is characterized by a Planckian distribution. The Sun is itself such a source, with a distribution temperature of about 5900-6000 Kelvin. This means that the total energy from the source cannot be characterized by a single frequency or "color", but ...

... there has been useful in several ways: as a slide-rule-like device for calculating orbital parameter values, as a graphical demonstration of the parameter interrelationships, and as a worksheet on which real and hypothetical orbits can be represented. Our units of measurement are geobasic units (4): the unit of mass is Earth's mass; the unit of length is the astronomical unit, or present mean distance of Earth from the Sun; and the unit of time is Earth's present sidereal year. The traditional symbols are used for the planets: [Venus (Venus), [Earth (Earth), [Mars (Mars), and [Jupiter (Jupiter). Two examples showing how limits may be put on specific orbits will be presented before we discuss the sequences of orbits. The Pre-Exodus Orbit of Venus Limits on Venus' orbit prior to its first encounter with Earth might be derived from the following assumptions: (A) Venus originated from Jupiter. (B) Venus later was involved in a near-collision with Earth. (C) The orbit of Venus was ...

34. Forum [SIS C&C Review $]
... From: SIS Chronology& Catastrophism Review 1992 (Vol XIV) Home¦ Issue Contents Forum Ia. Comet catastrophes: a new synthesis?- the challenge, set by Bernard Newgrosh It is now 42 years since Immanuel Velikovsky's Worlds in Collision first saw print and whilst his ideas generated debate, controversy and even furore, they are still no nearer to general recognition. This is particularly so of Velikovsky's cosmic catastrophism which featured the planet Venus on a cometary orbit, the planet Mars on an erratic orbit, and Venus, Mars, the Earth and the Moon having near-miss contacts with each other. Mainstream astronomers have repeatedly rejected these ideas and in the strongest possible terms. They have described his scenarios as 'wildly impossible' and have felt justified in doing so because they have found no way of reconciling his 'celestial billiards' with the laws of physics as currently known. Contrast this reaction to that which has greeted the evidence from which Velikovsky had adduced his catastrophe ideas. The past is catastrophic, he declared, because man's collective memory in the mythology of many ...

35. The Youthful Atmosphere of Venus [Aeon Journal $]
... From: Aeon I:6 (1988) Home¦ Issue Contents The Youthful Atmosphere Of Venus Charles Ginenthal In Worlds in Collision Immanuel Velikovsky claimed that Venus is a new planet. (1) Analysing mythological and historical evidence, Velikovsky concluded that less than ten thousand years ago Venus was expelled from the gas giant Jupiter, roamed the solar system as a comet, nearly collided with the Earth around 1500 B.C., and only later settled into its present, highly circular orbit. While subsequent research by other catastrophists has raised questions about certain specifics of Velikovsky's theory, this research has, on the whole, only reinforced Velikovsky's original and most fundamental claim that Venus appeared in historical times as a comet. Velikovsky's thesis concerning Venus' recent birth and cometary past can be tested against considerable evidence gathered since the thesis was first published in 1950. Among other things, it implies that-- contrary to the expectations of astronomers-- the atmosphere of the planet should exhibit evidence of extreme youth. In this paper I will show that a great deal of ...

36. Chapter V: The Planets and Moon [The Age of Velikovsky] [The Age of Velikovsky] [Books]
... D. Suvorov 5 led him to conclude in 1971 that planets could be individually expelled from the Sun.` The previous year, Sarvajna discussed the possibility of a charged body ejected from the Sun acquiring an orbit around the Sun. Later, I. P. Williams reinvestigated this proposal and concluded that Sarvajna's estimates of charge values were too high, but that the mechanism still had possibilities. 6 Historical evidence indicates that at least one planet may not have been formed in this manner. Velikovsky points out that the ancients taught that Venus erupted from Jupiter within the memory of man. In 1950, many critics of Worlds in Collision ridiculed the idea that such a thing could ever happen, and especially in historical times. However, some credentialled scientists do consider such possibilities, not to support Velikovsky, but simply in the course of' investigations into what could have occurred in the past. In 1961 Lyttleton published his own conclusion that the terrestrial planets must have erupted from the giant planets. 7 He said that under certain conditions a large planet formed near Jupiter's ...

... agni "fire". Vahagn is thus simply the "bringer of fire".(4) In this capacity he may be equated, then, with the Greek Prometheus and the Vedic Matarisvan, both of whom stole the fire of Jupiter (i.e. from Zeus, in the first instance and Dyaus Pitar in the second). Now, in time-- we are told by the Vedas-- the fire which Matarisvan stole became the god Agni and this is significant because Velikovsky has already identified Agni with the planet Venus(5) and had connected the myth of Prometheus with the fall of Naphtha from the same body.(6) The assimilation of Vahagn to the Mazdean Verethraghna supports this identification of Vahagn with Venus, for Verethraghna, in his capacity as patron of fire, is connected with the worship of the flaming naphtha fields of the Apcheron Peninsula (now in Soviet Azerbaidzhan but long in the territory of the ancient Persian Empire). These fields, of course, could be nothing more than the naphtha which Velikovsky believes to have ...

38. Problems With The Morning Star [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... From: SIS Chronology and Catastrophism Workshop 1987 No 1 (Sep 1987) Home¦ Issue Contents Problems With The Morning Star by Jill Abery Velikovsky makes much of the planet Venus as the Morning Star, particularly in respect of its worship as an object of terror by peoples round the world[1. However, he often appears to use the name Morning Star as a generic term and does not dwell over-much on the dual aspects of Venus as both Morning and Evening Stars. This duality has subsequently been discussed and its importance emphasised by others. Peter James has argued that Velikovsky was mistaken in his identification of Greek Aphrodite as the Moon, and that Aphrodite, as goddess of love, was in fact the Greek Evening Star while Athena was the warlike Morning Star aspect of Venus only[2. James proves his point by recourse to the myths and symbols of the Eurasian civilisations of the Hittites, Babylonians, Assyrians and Egyptians, where the often masculine, evil aspect of the Morning Star is contrasted with the feminine, love-goddess aspect of the Evening Star ...

39. When Venus Was A Comet [Kronos $]
... From: Kronos Vol. XII No. 1 (Winter 1987) Home¦ Issue Contents When Venus Was A Comet Ev Cochrane and David Talbott INTRODUCTION For the past several years, the world had been anxiously awaiting the arrival of history's most famous comet, that named after Edmund Halley. In anticipation of this rare event, a number of books were rushed into print; ocean cruises were organized intent on optimum viewing, while hundreds of "souvenirs" flooded the market. A casual observer of the Halley phenomenon might well wonder why all this fuss over a "celestial snowball". Aside from the obvious scientific importance of Halley's visit, the fact is that mankind has always been fascinated by the appearance of comets, especially one as reputable as Halley's. The occasion also served as a powerful reminder of the fundamental mystery of the Cosmos about us, and of human nature as well. The reader need hardly be reminded of the bizarre behaviour which has traditionally greeted Halley's appearances in the past, including mass hysteria, murder, and suicide. Neither should the ...

... From: Kronos Vol. IV No. 4 (Summer 1979) Home¦ Issue Contents For the Record... Velikovsky and Venus: A Preliminary Report on the Pioneer Probes Lewis M. Greenberg "Fantastic! It's unbelievable!"- Dr. Lawrence Colin (Chief scientist of the Pioneer-Venus mission) "We've got to rethink the whole formation theories of the inner planets of the solar system."- Dr. John Hoffman (Head of the mass spectrometer team for Pioneer Venus 2) "It's a totally unexpected result that we've come up with."- Dr. Michael McElroy Harvard University physicist) "It certainly is back to the drawing boards."- Dr. Thomas Donahue (University of Michigan physicist who designed the 30 experiments carried out in the Venusian atmosphere) Thus ran some of the reactions of the scientific community in the wake of Pioneer Venus 2's descent to that planet last December 9. The initial influx of data from the Venus probe was virtually overwhelming. At Mountain View, California, a computer line-printer disgorged "strange ...
