131. How Cosmic Impacts Have Shaped the Moon's Magnetic Field [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... to impact basins not long after the Apollo measurements hinted at a correlation. When a large meteor hits the moon, it and much of the lunar surface is vaporized and thrown into space, forming a cloud of debris and gas larger than the moon itself. Because of the heat released in the collision, much of the gas is ionized plasma in which the atoms are stripped of one or more electrons. Such plasmas exclude magnetic fields, so as the cloud spread around the moon it pushed the moon's magnetic field in front of it. When the plasma cloud finally converged on the diametrically opposite side of the moon- a mere five minutes after impact- the squeezed magnetic field ...
132. The Core Ejection Hypothesis [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... and no comments on this subject from readers have been received or published. After I had suggested in the SIS journals that pressure ionisation may be a process involved in charging I discovered a paper which appears to give support to this idea, John M. Dawson (a professor of physics at the University of California, Los Angeles): Plasma Particle Accelerators', Scientific American, March 1989. Dawson wrote'... the plasma channel tends to become positively charged, because the radiation pressure from the light exerts an outward push on the plasma electrons'. I see no reason why this should not also apply to radiation pressure acting on free electrons in the interior of ...

... wrong. It would be wrong to insist on using a slide rule to direct Galileo around Jupiter's moons. Just so, it's wrong for Established Science to refuse to look at Arp's findings of quantized intrinsic redshifts. Just so, it's wrong to overlook Juergen's insights into the electrical nature of the sun. It's wrong to ignore Alfven's admonition that plasmas don't behave the way theoreticians believe and that there are large-scale currents in space. It's wrong to dismiss the Saturn Theory as "merely myth" in blind defiance of the intelligibility in the data. Turning a deaf ear, a blind eye, and a closed mind to this astronomical mass of evidence is intellectually irresponsible. The domain of ...
134. Snapshots of the Gods? [Journals] [SIS Review]
... discharges known as Lichtenberg figures' [5 ], which are traces of electrical discharge found on dielectrics placed between electrodes set at varying voltages and currents. In fig. 17 these traces resemble spatters. If this connection is valid, the spatter may be an ancient depiction of electrical discharges induced by the interaction and subsequent breakdowns of bundles of plasma, which are contained in magnetic fields. The spatter's usual position, flanking the trismatic magnetic field configuration, suggests that the magnetic field acts as a shield (a device common in that art which most celebrates the trism, heraldry), deflecting currents of electricity to the side. Fig. 15 Lichtenberg figures Fig. 16 Lichtenberg figures ...

... and put that into our model, ' says Pryke. So measuring the polarization we expected from the model says we know what we are talking about. Had we not found it, cosmology would have been thrown into chaos. ' " AMY COMMENTS They are still playing the same old game. They make a prediction that fits better in plasma cosmology and call it their own. Then when it's found, Violé! their theory has been verified again. Polarized is certainly what's expected with magnetic fields and electric currents. Another press release that came out recently about the CMB. It was picked up by APOD Feb 12 http//antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov/ ...
136. Thoth Vol III, No. 10: July 30, 1999 [Journals] [Thoth]
... physical connections among objects with different redshifts knocks this joker over. The further discovery that redshifts are quantised in cluster-specific sequences tosses it onto the discard pile. The second joker is the assumption that electrical phenomena are insignificant on an astronomical scale, that gravitation alone shapes the structure of the universe. Hannes Alfvén tilted that card with his observations that plasmas are not neutral superconductors: they propagate charge separation, current flow, and electrical forces over large distances. Other researchers are flattening this joker by amassing evidence of plasma activity in a multiplicity of forms throughout the universe, at every scale. A common characteristic connects these jokers: The currently- popular theories are built on the assumption of ...

... to follow. The slide depicts an early phase in the hypothesized configuration as seen from Earth, together with a few prehistoric rock art images from Ireland and California. The pictographs, inscribed on stone, illustrate the relationship we intend to document, between planetary forms seen in the sky, the patterns of world mythology, and verifiable formations of plasma activity in the laboratory. It was the dynamic evolution of this planetary assembly, we shall contend, that inspired the mythical histories of the gods. Dave Talbott EDITOR'S NOTE The Intersect 2001 conference- "Electricity, Cosmology, and Human History"- will include the first public presentation of this story, with new animation and other visual ...

... reaction takes place at the lower temperature, 820 degrees F, to form a radar reflective mineral. This requires the unlikely situation that all peaks on Venus have the same chemistry. A much simpler answer is that the diffuse electric discharges of St. Elmo's fire, occurring preferentially at the highest altitudes of mountain peaks, forms a highly conductive plasma which is a superb reflector of radar signals. Lightning is poorly understood. The mechanism of charging of storm clouds remains a mystery. Because lightning is conventionally associated with violent cloud movement on Earth, it was a surprise when investigators found strong evidence of lightning in the quiescent atmosphere of Venus. On Venus the clouds tend to resemble fogbanks ...

... , with later estimates as high as 50 K. When the background radiation was actually detected in 1965, and later refined to today's 2.3 K level, Gamow and other Big Bang advocates conveniently forgot the larger estimates that theory had dictated and claimed victory for the Big Bang on the basis of Gamow's 1946 prediction.  Plasma cosmologists, too, expected a microwave background radiation because the double layer sheaths which form when a charged body is placed in a plasma always emit microwaves. As Anthony Peratt, Wallace Thornhill, and Don Scott will tell you: "There's no such thing as a quiet plasma sheath." The point is this: The fact that ...
