GRB's have a simple explanation in the Electric Universe Model. A gamma-ray burst (GRB) is a flash of high-energy radiation that lasts up to a few seconds. GRBs appear randomly around the sky at a rate of about one a day. An afterglow in x-ray and optical light may follow the burst and fade over several days. Analysis of afterglows enabled astronomers to link GRBs with “host” galaxies and the longer-lasting bursts with supernovas. Until this year, afterglows following the shorter bursts had not been detected. A burst that lasted a tenth of a second was detected on July 9, 2005. Thirty seconds later, a 150-second ...

Over 99% of the matter in the universe is in the form of plasma — aggregates of matter that contain charged particles. The charged particles move in response to electromagnetic forces, which can overpower gravity billions of times over. Through collisions, the charged particles carry neutral particles along with them. A very few charged particles can shape large amounts of matter into characteristic forms such as filaments, arcs and toruses. The electric currents flowing through plasma can heat it to high temperatures and accelerate particles to x-ray and cosmic-ray energies. Unfortunately, ...

In our Picture of the Day for March 25, we compared photographs of small blue-gray spherules on Mars to the results of laboratory experiments by plasma physicist C J. Ransom. For his replication of these Martian “blueberries”, Ransom used a bed of hematite, a primary constituent of some Martian soils. By blasting the material with an electric arc, he produced an array of small blue-gray spherules and fused globules virtually identical in appearance to those seen on the surface of Mars. Experiments of this sort will prove invaluable to our understanding of planetary evolution and geology. An electric arc is a plasma event, and plasma events ...

Large magnetic fields have been detected in galaxies, and these fields indicate that huge electric currents flow in circuits through the galaxies. These current-induced magnetic forces constrict the currents into filaments, twist the filaments around each other in spirals, and "pinch" the galactic plasma into balls, pulling in any matter in the neighborhood until the internal pressure balances the magnetic "pinching" pressure. This pinch effect is far more effective than gravity in gathering and concentrating matter. And, unlike gravity, it can remove angular momentum that tends to prevent collapse. Stars will form like beads along a galactic wire. One possibility, popular in some plasma cosmology ...

The NASA press release reports that this image “startled” scientists. The hot spot around Enceladus ’ south pole is “very difficult to explain if sunlight is the only energy source heating the surface.” The only other likely heat source available to conventional theorists is internal heat, but they are “unsure how the internal heat reaches the surface.” Close-up images reveal a series of somewhat parallel fractures that are the centers of the heat. NASA scientists speculate that internal heat escapes through these fractures and evaporates the ice along them, thereby generating Enceladus ’ ...

... . R. Bruce [32, is lost in the blizzard of material on the nebular theory. It has the virtue of simplicity, which is required by Occam's razor as a good start for any hypothesis, and it fits the observations better than theories based on gravitational collapse and trapped magnetic fields. Of course, it needs a lot more detailed work by physicists to determine the precise behaviour of matter under extremely high pressures in a gravitational field. Also, we need an improved understanding of the nature of electrical discharges in the plasma of space. A plasma is like a gas but, instead of being composed of neutral atoms, it consists of free ionised atoms and electrons in roughly equal numbers. It is a better conductor than any metal. Space plasmas exhibit a high degree of complexity and inhomogeneity, usually in the form of filamentary structures. Examples are auroral rays, coronal streamers, solar prominences and comet ion tails. Electric plasma discharge theory is not taught to astronomers. This is no surprise when we are unable to explain the simple charge build-up ...

120. The "Iron Sun" Debate (4) [Thunderbolts Website]
... , and meteorites accreted from leftover debris. But how did gases in a diffuse “cloud” collapse against the inherent tendency of gases in a vacuum to expand and rotating systems to fly apart? Why is the Sun tilted 7 degrees to the ecliptic? Why should giant planets, recently discovered in distant planetary systems, favor a close orbit about their star, while Jupiter and Saturn orbit far from the Sun? And if the different bodies in our solar system arose from a homogenous cloud, why does their composition vary so? Plasma cosmology provides the simple answer to the question of how stars are formed. They are formed by the powerful and long-reaching electromagnetic force of a “plasma pinch”, a principle well researched in the laboratory and now observed in detail in high resolution images of planetary nebulae. According to Hannes Alfvιn and other pioneers of plasma cosmology, a stellar system gives way to gravity only after the star is formed and as the plasma pinch subsides. In this view it is not correct to look to gravity as the cause of star formation ...
