111. Symbols of an Alien Sky: Part II [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... Internet Digest 2001:2 (Sep 2001) Home | Issue Contents Symbols of an Alien Sky: Part II DAVE TALBOTT continues his talk on Symbols of an Alien Sky (Part II). Unfortunately his talk moved so fast with so many interesting new ideas, that I was unable to take down many notes. Dave starts talking about plasmas, and how they try to reduce their electrical stress; in plasma streamers, they can do this by forming symmetrical patterns, so that three streamers will form a tri-form symmetry, etc. The Saturn Model has the planets Earth, Mars, Venus and Saturn (in that order) in a colinear arrangement (basically a straight line ...
112. Thoth Vol II, No. 18: Nov 15, 1998 [Journals] [Thoth]
... nuclear fusion, so the majority of astronomers support the hypothesis that the sun is a gravitating fusion factory, with a few magnetic anomalies that still need to be explained (new worries: where are those missing neutrinos?) The Electric Universe is no different. We're taking a concept that's become familiar (the behavior of electrical forces in a plasma lab) and testing how well they apply to those tiny specks of light in the sky, the moon, planets, stars, galaxies and beyond. This paradigm is exciting. It holds the promise of explaining hot coronas and missing neutrinos, craters and rilles, human mythology, and maybe even galactic redshift. It's worth exploring, ...
113. Remarks on TV Series To Feature Planetary Catastrophe [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... typical objections to the Saturn model based on mainstream physical theory. Let me give you just one of many examples. When the European SOHO satellite, just a few months ago, unexpectedly encountered a comet-tail of Venus (extending almost to the Earth), astronomers were more than a little puzzled. To put it bluntly, this highly structured plasma tail defies all conventional theory. What astonished scientist's about the now-invisible or remnant-tail of Venus was the apparent structure, which they called "stringy things." On the conventional model, there can be no such structure in a tail constituted from plasma simply "blowing in the (solar) wind." The discovered structure requires the flow ...
114. Electromagnetic Interference From Meteor Showers [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... June 1998 Andrew Yee <email@example.com> wrote: "It is possible," Ailor told the subcommittee, "that some satellites will be damaged, but the most likely source of damage will not be from a rock blasting a hole in a satellite, but rather, from the creation of a plasma, or free electric charge on the spacecraft. The charge could cause damage to computers and other sensitive electronic circuits on board the spacecraft, and ultimately cause the spacecraft to fail. For example," Ailor said, "during the 1993 Perseid meteor shower, it was determined that the Olympus communications satellite was damaged by a meteor strike ...
115. Thoth Vol II, No. 11: June 30, 1998 [Journals] [Thoth]
... stage, much of it is visual, an artists' rendition that precedes the mathematical development. See? If you think of the galaxy as an electrical circuit, the images fall into place: they're echoed on every scale, from lightning scars on Earth to arachnoid webs on Venus to the icy patchwork of Europa. The phenomena found in plasma labs provide a visual connection between comet tails, coronal mass ejections, machined craters, planetary nebulae, and galactic jets. In the behavior of the comet Shoemaker-Levi-9 you can see a mini-version of the polar configuration and its break-up. The math is in progress. If history can be used to predict the future, I expect that the ...
116. TRACE at Lockheed Martin [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 1998:1 (June 1998) Home | Issue Contents TRACE at Lockheed Martin http://www.lmsal.com/TRACE enables solar physicists to study the connections between fine-scale magnetic fields and the associated plasma structures on the Sun in a quantitative way by observing the photosphere, the transition region, and the corona. Images at: ftp://pao.gsfc.nasa.gov/newsmedia/TRACE/ One image shows "loops of plasma at different temperatures... indicating that heating of the plasma tends to occur along small groups of magnetic field lines." ...
117. Of the Moon and Mars, Part 1 [Journals] [Pensee]
... is that the thunderbolts thus referred to and depicted were not luminous streamers akin to atmospheric lightning, but luminous "objects" of missile-like proportions. If so, it seems likely that such thunderbolts were of the nature of the plasmoids described some years ago by Winston Bostick of Stevens Institute of Technology (4 ). These objects-"pieces of plasma" with "unexpected capacity for maintaining their identity" --were fired from the electrodes of a "plasma gun." They emerged from the gun in doughnut form, then expanded axially to form long cylinders. When fired into a thin gas, they bent themselves double and twisted into forms resembling screws. This suggests, if we are ...
118. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... treatment he has seen of the cosmological theories of Hannes Alfven in the conventional press. He certainly gets a sympathetic hearing even though, it is stressed, astrophysicists will have nothing to do with him. The reason for this is clear: Alfven believes that electric forces operate to shape our Universe at least as much as gravity does. Now plasma physicists like Alfven have first-hand experimental evidence of the power of electric currents on plasmas: astrophysicists deny such forces are in any way as effective as gravity in the cosmos, and some have gone so far as to dismiss Alfven's ideas as just silly'. Eric J. Lerner, writing for Discover, has himself done research in the ...
119. On Morrison: Some Final Remarks (Forum) [Journals] [Kronos]
... Venus can also be accommodated. On the electrical scheme, orbital eccentricity would seem to be the key to comet behavior. A highly elliptical orbit carries the nucleus, or central aggregation of comet matter, in and out of regions of varying electrical characteristics. Like a planet, the comet nucleus is an isolated probe immersed in the Sun's discharge plasma (Cf. KRONOS II, No. 3, p. 26). As it travels, then, it grows and sheds sheaths as necessary to adapt to its immediate environment. Along the outer parts of an orbit, travel is leisurely, and adaptation is easy. At perihelion passage, on the other hand, the nucleus ...
120. Thoth Vol I, No. 16: June 15, 1997 [Journals] [Thoth]
... , COSMIC NIGHT, an introduction to the "Saturn theory," supplemented by a summary of the "electric universe," all designed for the general reader. The book will review the global memory of the Golden Age and the world-changing catastrophe that brought that unique period of human history to its catastrophic conclusion. It will also show how plasma physics enables us to understand these events dynamically, in ways that can be replicated in the laboratory. Processes that have mystified astronomers and planetary geologists need not remain obscure any longer.- Date: Mon, 02 Jun 1997 12:14:03 -0400 (EDT) From: Benny J Peiser Subject: LOUIS FRANK'S MINI COMETS STIR ...
