141. The Saturn Thesis (Part 3) [Aeon Journal $]
... next size on the scale is too large-- the body would not descend visually as it approached the Earth. So that's one in twenty. For Venus, only two possible sizes (the next two sizes up the scale) will work given the depicted relationship to both Mars and Saturn. So that's one in ten. And the absolute limit with respect to possible sizes for Saturn would be the four sizes at the upper end of the scale. That's one in five. Twenty times ten times five is a thousand. Plasma discharge: a physical model for the Radiant Venus And keep in mind, this does not take into account the even larger size of Jupiter. If we include the apparent ancient know-ledge that Jupiter was the largest of the planets, a matter emphasized by Velikovsky, the odds grow worse by reducing the pos-sible sizes of Saturn that will work and requiring one to factor in the improbability of an accurate guess about Jupiter's size relative to the others. Moreover, based on observation of our sky, the bright star Venus-- certainly ...

142. The Hot Poles of Enceladus [Thunderbolts Website]
... home updates news and views picture of the day resources team a role for you contact us picture of the day archive subject index subject abstracts Credit: Courtesy NASA/JPL-Caltech Oct 27, 2006 The Hot Poles of Enceladus The unexpected hot spot around Enceladus ’ south pole is another indication of electric currents coursing through Saturn ’ s moon and connected with the electric circuits that compose Saturn ’ s plasma sheath. 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 ’ thin atmosphere of water vapor, which seems to be concentrated over the south pole. Water escaping ...

143. Kepler Supernova Remnant [Thunderbolts Website]
... Simple experiments can demonstrate the principle of the “z-pinch” that electrical theorists say is the best explanation of the hourglass shape of many bipolar nebulas. As a jet of water flows, the surface tension causes the stream to constrict, and the jet forms beads or droplets (see image top right). You can sometimes see this occur, for example, in the stream of water from a garden hose or sprinkler. Chief Researcher at the Kurchatov Institute, Boris Trubnikov, noted that water beading is a good analogy of the plasma jets that are observed to pinch in the laboratory and the cosmic plasma in nebulae, too. In plasma, the pinching is due to the self-generated magnetic field compressing the jet unevenly along its length. The pinch is sometime called a z-pinch because the magnetic field lies along the z-axis, and the beading is sometimes referred to as the sausage instability because of the shape. In 1905 James Arthur Pollock and Samuel Barraclough at the University of Sydney suggested that the distortions in a length of copper piping used as a lightning conductor were ...

The shock came from the European Space Agency's XMM-Newton X-ray observatory as it peered into a star-forming region called R Corona Australis, about 500 light-years from Earth. The astronomers who investigated the region were well schooled in the standard “nebular hypothesis” of star and planet formation. The theory holds that stars are born in the “gravitational collapse” of vast precursor clouds over great spans of time. Based on their model, astronomers had assumed that the cloud was “between 10,000 to 100,000 years into the process of gathering itself together”. Its temperature was estimated at 400 degrees below zero Fahrenheit ...

The laws of electromagnetism have been known for nearly 200 years and the physics of plasma behavior have been worked out over the past century. But the physics of astronomy seems transfixed by a kind of Puritan faith in oil-lamp era mechanics and gravity. The case of Venus is illuminating: Astronomers probe the atmosphere and surface with the latest electronic sensors. The returned signals indicate conditions typical of the interior of a gas discharge tube. But astronomers tie themselves into knots of contradiction and futility trying to explain the electric data with concepts of greenhouses and smog. The Pioneer probes experienced internal overloads and sparking at 12 km altitude as if they had become "coated ...

We tend to think of the advance of scientific knowledge as a cumulative activity. A careless acceptance of this plausible thought will cause us to blink at the side steps that intermittently redirect the attention of scientists. There are times when the emergence of knowledge slows, and stops, and re-emerges some distance away in another form. New facts can transform old facts into different facts. New insights can transform old truths into falsehoods. We look at a familiar object and in the midst of our gaze it becomes strange. Opportunity, one of the roving robots on Mars, discovered this meteorite lying on Mars' chilly ground. It looks like many similar meteorites discovered on the warm soils of Earth. It's familiar. We know nearly all ...

These are not the worlds that NASA scientists expected. On October 15, 1997, NASA launched the Cassini spacecraft toward the planet Saturn, perhaps the most enchanting body in the solar system. Almost seven years later, on July 1, 2004, the spacecraft entered an orbit around the gas giant. Scientists had expressed hope that the 3.7 billion dollar Cassini spacecraft would solve longstanding mysteries. But NASA spokesmen had expressed similar hopes for the Galileo mission to Jupiter several years earlier, and if that experience is any indication of what to expect, ...

... contact us news and views "Hourglass Figure" Points to Magnetic Field's Role in Star Formation- A Comment from Wallace Thornhill A colleague reading the attached story has noted, "The hourglass shape is ubiquitous and fits the 'pinch' model. Unfortunately the mainstream model also expects an hourglass shape. How can we distinguish between the models?" The answer is simple.The mainstream theory simply assumes, without explanation for its origin, that the magnetic field is "frozen in" to the molecular cloud. Hannes Alfvén, the father of modern plasma physics, made it clear that you cannot have a magnetic field "frozen in" to the plasma of the molecular cloud. But conventional theorists ignored his admonition and all of the evidence from plasma science showing that Alfvén was correct. So the mainstream model is based upon an invalid concept. It's just plain wrong and so are any predictions based upon it. How can we distinguish between the models? To begin with, the compression of a dusty plasma in a plasma pinch can be demonstrated experimentally, the conventional model cannot ...

Its rotation is phase-locked with its revolution, so the same side always faces forward in its orbit around Saturn. It also means that one side (called the leading side) is the "front side"-- it leads Iapetus' motion around Saturn and the opposite side (called the trailing side) is the "back side". The leading side is dark, but the trailing side is light, so much so that Cassini, the astronomer who discovered the moon in 1671, remarked that he could see it on one side of Saturn but not on the other. Of all the moons in the solar system, Iapetus is the only one that is "half-and-half" ...

This galaxy is 190,000 light years from Earth. E0102 -72, which is approximately a thousand years old, is believed to have resulted from the explosion of a massive star. Stretching across forty light years of space, the multi-million degree source resembles a flaming cosmic wheel. http://chandra.harvard.edu/photo/snrg/ Chandra provides crucial evidence for the Electric Universe because x-rays are only emitted where electrical discharges are occurring. In particular, we find x-rays emitted by supernovae and their remnants, active galaxies and the coronas of stars. Also note that the concept of "multi-million degree" temperatures is inappropriate ...
