161. Thoth Vol IV, No 5: March 15, 2000 [Journals] [Thoth]
... electric sun/star" hypothesis, has as yet managed to remain undetected. Thornhill: By ignoring, or not troubling to find out about Juergens' model, we have here a "straw man", built upon an unspecified model. Juergens was at great pains to describe the model of a cathode- less glow discharge in a plasma. That was the specific model he chose on the basis of its match to all of the observed phenomena we call "the Sun". That includes such things as granulation of the photosphere, chromospheric spicules, anomalous temperatures above the photosphere, anomalous Fraunhofer spectrum, and so on and on. In a glow discharge, the current ...

163. Thoth Vol VI, No 4: June 30, 2002 [Journals] [Thoth]
... composed of smaller orbiting charges - then it means that the electrons and protons are subject to a lower ambient polarizing electrostatic force - in other words, gravity. That is borne out by the high initial velocity and subsequent slowing of quasars as their redshift falls. Herbig-Haro objects should show the same effects because in both cases I think that the plasma focus (PF) effect, that spits out jets and quasars. I believe that the PF traps the much lighter electrons for a time after the main ejection event. Also, many of the protons are released from the PF in the form of an intense beam of neutrons which subsequently decay into protons and electrons plus a great shower ...
164. The Nature and Origin of Comets and the Evolution of Celestial Bodies (Part I) [Journals] [Kronos]
... discharge phenomena in its vicinity and the proportionately larger thermal output when compared to Jupiter, it must be true that Saturn is much more active and therefore younger than Jupiter.(41) A major result of the Saturn paper is the identification of two charging processes, both resulting in a net negative charge on a body moving in a hot plasma (either planetary radiation belts or the solar wind). The first has been detected and is induced as the body enters regions of varying electrical potential within the plasma.(2 ,42,43) A small space craft can quickly charge to a potential of 10,000 volts, so if size is assumed to be important ...
165. Electric Currents in Space [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... brighter than Pollux; Capella was described by Ptolemy as red star. Hence the position of a star on the Hertzsprung-Russell diagram indicates its electrical environment, and not its age. The origins of novas, pulsars and binaries are now all explained. As Hannes Alfvén said: "Students using astrophysical textbooks remain essentially ignorant of even the existence of plasma concepts, despite the fact that some of them have been known for half a century," he argued. "The conclusion is that astrophysics is too important to be left in the hands of astrophysicists who have gotten their main knowledge from these textbooks. Earthbound and space telescope data must be treated by scientists who are familiar with laboratory ...

... space/9805/27/sun.quakes/ http://soi.stanford.edu/press/ssu05-98/ and the surprise at the depth to which it reaches from the corona, of course in the electric Sun model the photosphere is not the "surface" of the Sun but merely one level in the extremely complex plasma phenomena associated with an anode discharge in space. The shock is not purely mechanical and [is not] due to an "electromagnetic explosion" high in the corona. Like the newly discovered phenomena associated with Earthly lightning that extend from ground level into space, we are seeing in the Sun's corona merely the topmost level of a phenomenon ...
167. Summing up [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... would have been the cause the electrical effects seen through the Saturn system (as comets are similarly affected on approaching the Sun). How would the Earth have survived outside the Solar System? Saturn would have been a brown dwarf, one of the most common objects in the Universe. There was even suggestion that co-linear systems are formed by plasma currents (Birkeland currents) as exemplified by Herbig-Haro objects, some of which "consist of highly linear chains or jets", and the accretion of material in a plasma Z-pinch, where "Most models of young stars and their immediate environments incorporate magnetic fields. Magnetic fields in the collapsing, rotating cloud core are advected with the accretion ...

... to twist the clouds into their tornado-like appearance. While the spiral shapes suggest the clouds are twisting, future observations will be needed to confirm that." I would like you to note the exceedingly weak explanation for the formation of the "twisters". It is yet another manifestation of astronomers clinging to simple gas models rather than more complex plasma models. It should also be noted that earthly tornados are not well understood either because, I would suggest, electrical effects are ignored. Helical filaments are a natural configuration of current carrying plasmas and are seen in the powerful jets emanating from active galactic nuclei. I have no doubt that the clouds in the Lagoon Nebula will be found ...
169. Rocks From Where? [Journals] [Horus]
... interactions of cosmic proportions, witnessed from Earth and preserved in myth and legend, many surface features of both bodies can be explained readily. Current theories about the origin of these scars are often strained, incomplete, or deal incongruously with the various parts of the puzzle. Based on the evidence marshaled by Velikovsky, it is likely that phenomenal plasma discharges took place between the Moon and Mars, with the Moon as the cathode and with Mars as the anode. Given a close enough approach of the two bodies, and their interaction with the Earth's magnetosphere, the electric field between anode and cathode had to build to an intensity great enough to pull electrons away from the cathode. ...
170. Thoth Vol IV, No. 2: Jan 31, 2000 [Journals] [Thoth]
... Thornhill responds: there is a photograph on the wall of the high voltage lab in Melbourne where some of the experiments appearing on my CD were videotaped. It is a photograph of ball lightning. Dr C E R Bruce of the Electrical research Association was of the opinion that ball lightning was formed at severe kinks in a lightning channel. Plasma physicists are aware that plasma does the counter-intuitive thing at sharp bends in a magnetic field and will actually leave the usual path along the field lines and veer off in the opposite direction. It is at those points that a knot of hot ionized gas (or plasmoid) seems to be formed. Ball lightning seems to be a self-contained ...
