62. The Organization of the Solar System, Part II: A Galactic Capture Hypothesis [Journals] [Aeon]
... , with respect to the eight or nine planets requiring explanation, the nebular hypothesis does not constitute an effective theory. It was noted that the Sun is seen as ejecting flares and prominences somewhat continuously, sometimes extending to more than a half million miles from the "rim" of the Sun. All are called back by the Sun's immense gravity. To gauge the power of that gravity, simply consider that the Sun's mass is 332,000 times that of the Earth, and 1050 times that of Jupiter. Radiation and solar wind both emanate from the Sun and disperse into space, but such is not the "stuff" of which planets are made. The absence of ...
63. The Organization of the Solar System [Journals] [Aeon]
... the "bands" of Khecil-Jupiter comes from the Hebrew word mowshekah, which means "pulling" or "drawing," but it can also contain the meaning of to delay or to prolong, ideas which could relate to planetary timing and to orbital periods. This word is as close as any in ancient Hebrew to the general idea of gravity, which is also pulling or drawing, with force to shorten or lengthen timing involving a planet. If a grave mistake has been made by fiat creationists (that of failing to look to the Book of Job, the earliest, for cosmology), so also has a collage of major errors been made by the nebular hypothesis proponents ...
64. Orbits of Core Material Ejected from Gaseous Planets [Journals] [Kronos]
... the transit path are described before the ejection process, as this sequence corresponds to the discovery of the proposed explanation of these items. The interactions of the ejected core with Mars and Earth, involving abnormal tidal forces and orbital disturbances, will be dealt with in a separate paper. THE TRANSIT FROM JUPITER TO THE ORBIT OF VENUS If only gravity acts on a cosmic body in motion at the orbital distance of Jupiter, the body will travel in an elliptical path (unless it exceeds escape velocity) with the Sun at a focal point, returning to pass through its point of origin. In the course of time its path may change due to interactions with Jupiter and other planets ...
65. The Electric Saturnian System [Journals] [Aeon]
... discharge phenomena: Venus with its radiating streams and plasma toroidal "eye," not to mention the polar column itself. Astronomers already know, and are puzzled by the fact, that comets accelerate under the influence of non-gravitational forces. The Electric Universe model recognizes the cometary jets and tail as an electric plasma discharge. In that model, gravity is a weak manifestation of the fundamental electrical property of matter and it can be modified by altering the charge on a body. It is the change in gravity of a comet as it discharges that causes the anomalous accelerations. With that idea in mind, it is possible to speculate that proto-Saturn underwent a long period of increasing acceleration from ...
66. The Ring of Truth by Isaac Vail [Books]
... me to conceive how even a schoolboy can long follow such fallacious teaching. Does the reader for a moment suppose that if the great oceans were today thrown into the neighborhood of the moon's orbit and made to revolve about the Earth, they would immediately return? A ball thrown vertically upward would return immediately when it reached its greatest height for gravity only brings it to rest and must at once bring it back. But suppose that ball, when it reaches its greatest height, is carried forward by another force that is sufficient to make it revolve around the Earth. [picture/schematic] CLOUD BELT EQUILIBRIUM FORCES, THEORETICALLY BALANCED The force of gravity is greater toward the poles ...
67. Stability and Dimensions of the Polar Configuration [Journals] [Aeon]
... , where 1 <= n <= 5 (so Saturn's mass may range between that of present Saturn and that of present Saturn+ Jupiter, with allowance for ejective mass at the close of the Golden Age (2 ) ). Then se/n <= 910,000 km, and the acceleration at Earth due to Saturn's gravity was = 4.8 /n cm/s2, or 0.50-0.10% of Earth's surface gravity. The effect of the stabilizing induced D'p on the axial component of force and so on the equilibrium position of planet p is treated in the Appendix. The present low magnetism of Venus indicates that in the magnetic model ...
... two or three elliptic revolutions to a distance far beyond that of the earth and even of Jupiter may seem surprising in view of their comparative smallness and lack of solidity. The reason for it is that they approach the sun at a momentum of tremendous speed and this same momentum carries them on, like a shell from a gun, until gravity at length supervenes. Records exist of certain comets and their vagaries which should be mentioned to avoid any possible misunderstanding. They confirm in every particular the importance in the solar system of these bodies and their role as planet makers and breakers. What are known as twin or tandem comets are of considerable interest in celestial phenomena, like the ...
69. On Velikovsky's Orbits [Journals] [SIS Review]
... 1 0, 0 4) No explanation was given in that letter on how these numbers were obtained. In a paper entitled The orbits of Venus', published in Pensée, Volume 3, Ransom and Hoffee [4 ] presented a more detailed discussion of the same orbits and claimed that these orbits are not inconsistent with the laws of gravity. In Velikovsky and the Sequence of Planetary Orbits', which was published in Pensée Volume 8, Rose and Vaughan [5 ] presented the mathematical justification of their orbits. They state Keplerian orbits can be proposed that not only cross each other, so that collisions, or near collisions will tend to occur, but also maintain total ...
70. Book Shelf [Journals] [Aeon]
... being dissuaded by Planck, in 1905 Einstein wrote several seminal papers treating quanta in photo-electric effects and set down his special theory of relativity. A decade later he outlined his general theory of relativity, both theories using the tools of Riemann's tensors. In the early 1920s Theodr Kaluza stunned Einstein with his own unification paper, combining Einstein's theory of gravity with Maxwell's theory of light by adding one more dimension. But at the time few mathematicians were intrigued by any additional vectors to the space-time four-dimensional model postulated by Einstein. In 1926 Oskar Klein- who also designed the so-called Klein bottle, a three-dimensional analog to the two-dimensional Möbius strip- added to Kaluza's model by showing that the fifth ...
