91. Thoth Vol I, No. 10: April 22, 1997 [Journals] [Thoth]
... will have stripped away its superficial blanket of negative charge. No longer does its surface potential match that of its surroundings, yet its internal (radial) polarization produces an external electric field, just as polarization in an electret made of wax exhibits an external field here on earth. A space-charge sheath will begin to form to shield the interplanetary plasma from the comet's alien field. As the comet races toward the sun, its sheath takes the form of a long tail stretching away from the sun. This happens, not because the electrified sun repels the tail material, but because voltage differences between the comet and the interplanetary plasma vary sharply with direction, and because sheath thicknesses are ...
92. Obituary: Melvin Cook (1911-2000) [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Murphree Award of the American Chemical Society in 1963 and the Chemical Pioneer Award of the American Institute of Chemists in 1973. As well as his professorship, Dr. Cook was also Director at the Institute of Metals and Explosives Research and made important scientific contributions in the fields of flotation, adsorption of gases on solids, universal gravitation and detonation-generated plasma. He had over 200 scientific articles published in leading journals and wrote 6 books, including classics on explosives: The Science of High Explosives, American Chemical Society Monograph No. 139, and The Science of Industrial Explosives. He patented over 100 inventions and served as expert witness in numerous cases involving accidental explosions. Dr Cook was also ...
93. The Electric Universe: How and Why it Works [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... completeness with quantum mechanics. A holistic approach to the Electric Universe is (a ) Hierarchical (b ) the source of the electric power is currently beyond detectors (c ) is a common simple electric model (d ) Stars are not isolated in their environment (e ) Weather systems on stars and planets have an electrical input. Space plasma can be neutral or charged, and have electric currents and magnetic fields. They form filaments that radiate energy. Kristian Birkeland placed a magnetised sphere representing the Earth (a "terrella") inside a vacuum chamber and directed electrons moving towards it, and saw that they were steered by the magnetic field in the vicinity of the terrella's ...
94. Thorium Enrichment in Crater Rims: Earth and Moon [Journals] [Aeon]
... electric discharge machining, (EDM), might be worth investigating, especially in light of the Aboriginal legends concerning the rainbow snake which emerged from the ground to form the Wolfe Creek Crater.  This is especially of interest since this is a motif associated globally with celestial thunderbolts. Can the chemical composition of solids be changed by plasma? Yes, in several ways. EDM can deposit or peel away layers of material in defiance of gravity. This is because gravity is no obstacle to the much stronger force of electricity. The process of electrically removing or depositing layers is widely used in manufacturing. Harold Tresman has suggested that this process can seen on a much larger ...
95. Thoth Vol II, No. 4: February 28, 1998 [Journals] [Thoth]
... , designed to perform flight demonstrations of new spacecraft technologies for solar system and Earth-orbiting missions. I predict that unless NASA has begun to take notice of The Electric Universe before they perform this comet caper, they will be in for some nasty surprises. To begin with, it will be an interesting exercise to orbit an object that is firing plasma beams and modifying its apparent gravity in the process. Any object that tries to land on it will need lightning arrestors fitted to equalize the voltage differences before touchdown. But a more serious problem will occur after landing. Any metal object protruding from the surface of the comet will become a prime candidate for the focus of one of the ...
96. SIS Silver Jubilee Conference: Abstracts [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... recorded in art and myth actually were seen in the sky. In that article I showed many of these forms and suggested that their appearance implied the presence of unusual amounts of electromagnetic forces near to the earth. In this presentation, I'll concentrate on one particular configuration. But first some background. In my article I noted that concentrations of plasma may occasionally erupt from the terrestrial magnetotail, eruptions seemingly occurring during periods of excess solar activity. These eruptions produce bundles of plasma or plasmoids that are nested into their own magnetic fields. Cyril Marystone in his The Origins of Comets in Planet Magnetotail (1983, Private Publication) has suggested that in the past these plasmoids appeared in the ...

... in my Protest'. Harry E Mongold, Manhattan, Illinois, USA Ball Lightning Dear Sir, Dr Yoshi-Hiko Ohtsuki (Waseda University, Tokyo) has made ball lightning in a plasma-creation chamber, using strong microwave radiation. As reported in Mutant Ninja Circles' (The Economist, 17th Aug. 1991, pp. 74-5), these plasma balls: - "show some of natural ball lightning's curious quantum gymnastics: movement into wind, a tendency to hover near electrical conductors, and ghostlike passage through non-conducting solids. .. when the balls touch down on a tray of aluminium powder - a crude substitute for field crops - they left ringed circles, miniatures of a shape ...

... of electricity is crucial, and I must confess that I did not realize the full import of electricity until the meeting with Wal Thornhill late in 1996. For thirty days, Wal camped out in my office helping us prepare for the January' 1997 world conference. During that time he convinced me that the celestial images I had reconstructed were plasma discharge phenomena. This revelation proved to be a critical turn in the historical investigation. For many years I had insisted that electromagnetism would have to be considered if we were to account for the remembered dynamics of the ancient Saturnian system. From the beginning I was convinced (following Velikovsky's lead) that lightning bolts had passed between planets. ...
99. The Celestial Tower [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... phallus consist of? Clearly it was not a human construction, and over the last few years various theories have been put forward to explain it. Most plausibly, it has been suggested that the earth's close encounter with the mighty comet recalled in the Typhon and Phaethon stories had electro-magnetically recharged' the planet, and that the tower was a plasma funnel of electrical energy that became visible at the poles (inhabitants of the northern hemisphere would of course only have seen the funnel emanating from the North Pole). This certainly seems to be a reasonable supposition, as much other tradition about the Flood cataclysm speaks of unusual electrical phenomena (the thunderbolts of the gods) in the immediate ...
100. On Cosmic Electrical Charges [Books] [de Grazia books]
... flares. These ions make the Earth's task Sisyphean: it accretes electrons only to be forced also to take in electron-deficient ions that are hungry as well for the electrons. An examination of the electrospheres present in the Solar System  reveals a "shielding" that protects the charged planets, for they are immersed in a flow of plasma, which must remain close to charge-neutrality. In the plasma, the local differences between electron and ion densities is small, as it is in a metallic conductor through which an electric current flows. Hence in some proportional fashion the small quantity of incident electrons from the Galaxy are distributed to all of the bodies within the cavity by way ...
