41. Impacts & Electromagnetic Pulse [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... I have never heard this before. I thought EMP was generated only by man-made sources (e .g . nuclear explosions). Why would asteroid impacts generate EMP?" I have suggested the same in many public forums but I am not equipped to prove it theoretically. However, when Shoemaker-Levy 9 smashed into the southern hemisphere of Jupiter aurorae were triggered at the mirror points in its northern hemisphere. That suggests extreme disturbances traveled along the magnetic field lines and isn't that the essence of an EMP - an extreme disturbance of magnetic fields, especially when associated with the presence of electrons? That can generate radio frequency radiation and/or induce severe effects in conductors at ground level ...
42. Internet Watch [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... Rock Art of Easter Island, by Dr. Georgia Lee, ISBN 0-917956-74-5, The Institute of Archaeology, UCLA, Monumenta Arch. 17, 1992. Dragons and Serpents alt.mythology 19.9 .95 and 17.11.95 Tim Sheppard (firstname.lastname@example.org), and Mark Isaak (email@example.com) This book is in print but hard to find, presumably being from a small specialist publisher: Zhao, Q. A Study of Dragons, East and West, 1992, 247pp., hardback £57, US $99. Acclaimed as a milestone in dragonology, this is a comprehensive survey of the symbolism of ...
43. Letters [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... but just perceivable' (I assume that it is the comet which is only just perceivable). Laurence deduces from this that, for sound to be heard, part of the comet must have intersected the atmosphere. Could there be another explanation? Laurence does not consider the possibility of electrical interactions of Earth with any passing bodies; Earth's auroras are a phenomenon which requires no actual, physical connection with a passing body, but their electrical nature often causes them to be audible. Is it possible that approaching comets, asteroids or meteorites are electrically charged and can interact with Earth's field to cause aurora-like phenomena? Jill Abery, Sittingbourne, Kent Dear Reader At an SIS meeting at ...
44. To Begin the World Over Again [Journals] [Aeon]
... power between stars, around galaxies, and across intergalactic space. A universe filled with power grids instead of vacuum explains: Why the Sun oscillates- in its radiation output, in its sunspot cycle, in its physical size. Why the Sun's corona is much hotter than its photosphere. Why the solar "wind" accelerates. Why the aurora behaves like a gas-discharge tube. Why Io sports plasma-focus device plumes. Why pulsars oscillate at rates from minutes to milliseconds. Why space is filled with "background microwave radiation." An understanding of plasma behavior will not merely modify our familiar mechanical concepts in astrophysics, it will replace them. The physics of solids, liquids and gases ...
45. Dragons [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... how you may prefer to render worm it remains a fact that modern English dragon is used to render AS wyrm and ON ormr. so, it would seem appropriate to recommend those AS and ON texts which contain beasts known as worms or dragons...or serpents, if you prefer. Isolde From: Mark Isaak, firstname.lastname@example.org Date: Tue, 18 Jul 1995 19:22:00 GMT A few more references to dragons: Revelation 12:3- a 7-headed, 12-horned dragon representing Satan. Grimm's Fairy Tales: the Devil and His Grandmother- again, the Devil takes dragon form. The Two Brothers- one slew a fire-breathing, 7-headed ...
46. Planetary Electrostatic Properties [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... primary vehicle in establishing class M planetary weather patterns is electrostatic in nature. Consider the swirling weather patterns of Earth, which are polar oriented. And what of thunderstorm activity, accompanied by massive capacitive discharges in the form of lightning? Moreover, consider a well known correlation between intense solar flare activity and resulting dynamic weather changes upon earth. Aurora Borealis would certainly indicate that solar activity is capable of inducing a polar oriented change within Earth's magma, and the natural hysteresis involved could explain a slight lag (in terms of weeks) between active solar flares and dynamic changes in Earths' weather. If proven (and I believe the facts of nature make it self evident) this ...
47. Dragons in the Sky [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... might be equally possible that these references are also to auroral displays. The twisting, serpentine form of an auroral rayed band, for example, might as easily be the source of the cited reports here. Some years ago - I think it was 1981 - there was even the suggestion in New Scientist that St George's dragon was actually an aurora... Not everything in the sky has to be a meteoric fireball! ...
48. Effects of Atmospheric Dust on the Arcus Visionis [Journals] [Kronos]
... of the stratosphere; the mesosphere is the layer in which most meteors burn out and thus is a source of upper atmospheric dust; the mesosphere is also the location of so-called noctilucent clouds; the ionosphere, a portion of which is often referred to as the thermosphere, contains ionized gases in a near vacuum. The ionosphere is responsible for auroras and for effects on radio transmission. It should be emphasized that the boundaries of these regions are not sharp, but that characteristics of the atmosphere within these regions are markedly different. The main differences in characteristics result from the Earth's gravitational field and the "ideal gas" nature of the gaseous constituents of the atmosphere. The physics of ...
49. Saturn And Voyager [Journals] [Kronos]
... tiny Tethys and Mimas the canyon and peaked hill are very great structures indeed, representing for their parent body much larger cataclysmic scars than their Martian homologs. The polar twilight haze observed above Titan as a thickening of its already smoggy atmosphere may add to the electrical evidence, especially if this "glow" turns out to be similar to Earth's aurora polaris The Voyager 1 mission provided badly needed facts and demolished much speculation which too long has been stated as factual. It is a triumph of engineering and technology and it is definitely a tribute to human ingenuity. But it cannot be cited honestly in support of the speculations about the origin and creation of the Solar System so cherished by ...
50. Plasma Scalability [Journals] [Aeon]
... have been measured in crystalline lattices to sizes of the dimensions of our largest plasma laboratory, the Solar System. It has been established that the equations for controlling a plasma reactor for etching a silicon chip that will become a computer microprocessor (70% of chip manufacture is by plasma processes) are basically the same equations used to study the aurora, solar wind, and Sun. As each of the technological examples given above are multi-billion dollar projects, it is expected that the scientific method for scaling will lead to a design that will function as predicted with minimum iteration, as has been proven to be the case. Dwardu Cardona replies: First of all, I had already ...
