This false-color image of Saturn in ultraviolet light shows the complete circle of an aurora around Saturn s south pole and part of the aurora around its north pole. From almost the beginning of the space age, plasma physicists have known that electric currents flow from regions high above Earth s equator to the auroral regions around the magnetic poles and that these circuits power the auroras. Presumably, Saturn s auroras are lit by similar circuitry. But conventional astrophysicists persist in describing auroras with meteorological metaphors: “hydrogen gas excited by electron bombardment” that responds to “changes in the solar wind.” The inertia of prior ...

The Monograph includes an hour-long DVD introducing various aspects of the Electric Universe explained by members of the Thunderbolts Group. More Information Book Synopsis Read Chapter One Order Link Dec 09, 2005 Electric Venus and Oil-Lamp Physics Modern astrophysics is trying to explain electric lights with theories born in the oil-lamp era. 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: ...

Because the Earth is a small charged body moving in a large cell of plasma, explanations of all physical phenomena in, on, and near the Earth must take the electrical behavior of plasma into account. Earth's atmosphere is an insulating medium separating the charge on the surface from the charge in the surrounding space plasma. A complex of "double layers" distributes the potential difference between the surface and space much like a series of capacitors. We detect the electrical field of the bottommost layer in the fair weather surface field of around 100 volts per meter. This field beneath a thunderstorm may be 100 times stronger ...

164. Snowball Mini-comets [SIS Internet Digest $]
... size of a small house! It is understandable that people in the Spacewatch program are very concerned that they haven't seen anything of these impactors. Astronomers have rightly asked why it is that we haven't detected this barrage by some other means. It should provide ample water to make the rare, stratospheric noctilucent clouds a continuous feature of our skies. It would be sufficient to give the Moon an appreciable atmosphere and cause seismic shocks and surface erosion there- none of which are apparent. Earth satellites would be expected to have detected the plasma disturbance in their wake. It is unlikely the military would have missed them. Frank's answer to the objections is that the phenomena is real and no one has come up with an alternative explanation. In his words, "There was no other reasonable explanation." The new photographs of the bright trails of objects entering the Earth's ionosphere, reported widely, have focussed attention on Frank's theory but in no way constitutes proof. If anything, the NASA publicity has polarised the astronomical fraternity. On the one hand are the skeptics ...

165. "Baked Galaxies," or Half-Baked Theories? [Thunderbolts Website]
... no galaxy. Study co-author Dr. Jason Surace of NASA's Spitzer Science Center at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena says of this “baking” process, “Dark matter has gravity, so it pulls in more and more dark matter in addition to normal gas ...We know that the gas eventually condenses into the stars that make up galaxies, but the Spitzer study suggests that this doesn't happen until the dark matter has reached a critical mass." To Electric Universe proponents-- specialists such as electrical engineers and plasma physicists-- this kind of statement illustrates the seriousness of the 21st century crisis in cosmology. What astronomers envision as inert gas is ionized, radiating plasma, laced with electric (Birkeland) currents. As discussed for the past 2 years on these pages, electrified plasma is an unequaled force at organizing galactic structure. Computer models of two current filaments interacting in plasma have, in fact, reproduced fine details of spiral galaxies. The gravitational schools, on the other hand, must rely on invisible matter, arbitrarily placed wherever ...

The winged disc is essentially a circle to which two outstretched wings are attached. It is a religious symbol representing a deity the ancients regarded as the supreme god of the sky. The symbol is found in Egypt, Mesopotamia, Anatolia, and northern Syria and comes in a number of local variations; the Egyptians often attached two coiling uraeus -serpents to its sides or placed two little horns on top of the disc, whereas the Assyrians typically portrayed the disc as a ring containing the upper part of the god in human form. The example shown above on the left corner is a close-up of a panel from the ruins of the 'North West Palace ...

... 15%. Because traditional astronomers never question traditional assumptions (and appear not to recognize they even have any), they cannot be expected to mention that their margin of erroneous assumption is somewhere around 500%. That, of course, can account for their two “more precise” determinations in exactly opposite directions. They are in the same position as the clockmaker who attempts to determine the exact time of day by measuring the position of the minute hand and fails to notice that the hour hand is missing. Without recognizing that plasma makes up 99% of the universe and that it has dominant electrical properties, astronomers inhabit a make-believe universe in which precise measurements can mean precisely opposite things. The first astronomer studied a bright eclipsing binary star system in the nearby spiral galaxy M33. He measured with state-of-the-art instruments the stars orbital period and apparent brightness. He calculated the stars masses, and then their absolute luminosities, and then their distance. His result was 3 million light-years instead of the 2.6 million that had been accepted. One can presume that ...

The formulators of the standard Sun model worked with gravity, gas laws, and nuclear fusion. But closer observation of the Sun has shown that electrical and magnetic properties dominate solar behavior. For centuries, the nature of the Sun s radiance remained a mystery to astronomers. The Sun is the only object in the solar system that produces its own visible light. All others reflect the light of the Sun. What unique trait of the Sun enables it to shine upon the other objects in the solar system? Today, astronomers assure us that the most fundamental question is answered. The Sun is a thermonuclear furnace ...

In electrical terms, the similarity could be more than coincidence. Traditional thinking in the sciences would not recognize a significant pattern above, though the three objects reveal an odd similarity. Each sphere possesses an equatorial ridge. But surely the two objects on the right could tell us nothing about the origins of the object on the left! Astronomers assure us that Saturn s moon Iapetus arose from the “circumstellar cloud” that gave birth to the Sun, planets, moons, and all of the lesser objects of ...
