But scientists might not have been surprised had they paid attention to the experiments of plasma scientist Kristian Birkeland. In a basement lab of the physics department at the University of Iowa, James Van Allen designed Explorer 1, a scientific satellite for the International Geophysical Year (IGY) of 1957-1958. The satellite carried only a single instrument, a small Geiger counter to record energetic particles. The instrument was designed to measure cosmic rays, highly energetic ions (positively charged particles) of unknown origin arriving from distant space. Strangely, though the experiment detected many particles at low altitudes, at the top of the orbit it counted no particles at all, ...

In 1979, the United States space probe Voyager I approached Jupiter, passing through its system of moons to take the first close-up pictures of Io, the large moon closest to the gas giant. A few months later Voyager II followed, adding to the new and spectacular profile of the moon. According to mission scientists with the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), "probably the greatest surprise" of the Voyager flyby of Jupiter was the discovery of active "volcanoes" on Io, with plumes jetting far into space ...

LOWER: More than 90 years ago, the experimental physicist Kristian Birkeland produced the "rings of Saturn" in a glowing plasma, using a slightly magnetized 24 cm diameter conducting globe as a cathode in a vacuum discharge.

One might be tempted to dismiss these images as crude representations of human beings, but there are good reasons to suspect that something else may have been behind the production of these objects. After all, Mycenaean art is not normally known for its crudeness and the artists would probably have been able enough to produce more naturalistic objects. A comparative study of the statues in case, some of which are portrayed above, uncovers a number of recurrent features. The figurines all have a cylindrical base. Their torsoes are invariably decorated with vertical stripes and come in three types. Due to ...

More Information Book Synopsis Read Chapter One Order Link May 15, 2006 Missing Air of Mars Astronomers seek to calculate earlier atmospheric conditions on Mars based on the present rate of atmospheric loss. But such attempts are inevitably flawed. The wild card is the role of planetary catastrophe in the past. Mars has an atmosphere only one hundredth as dense as the Earth's. Before space probes visited it, astronomers expected it to be ten or more times thicker than it is. ESA's Mars Express orbiter has come up ...

But that explanation overlooks details that can be better explained as plasma discharge formations. Conventional “gravity-only” astronomy sees in this image of a galaxy with a ring around it the bending of light by gravity: “Here the foreground galaxy acts like a huge gravitational lens, pulling the light from the background object... into a nearly perfect giant ring around the foreground galaxy.” But the father of conventional “gravity-only” astronomy, Albert Einstein, wouldn t have agreed. In 1936 he published a one-page paper in Science on gravitational lensing. He said: Observe a certain star A on the sky and imagine another star B in the line of ...

Before space probes visited it, astronomers expected it to be ten or more times thicker than it is. ESA's Mars Express orbiter has come up with a possible explanation (see illustration above). The orbiter has been measuring how much atmosphere is being removed from Mars today by solar wind interactions. The total is about 1 kilogram (2.2 pounds) per second, or about 100 tons per day. That's not fast enough to have depleted Mars' atmosphere in the accepted length of Martian history, but presumably when there was more atmosphere, the process happened faster. But the concept breaks down when you consider Venus. By standard theory, Venus, Earth and Mars have a common origin in the solar nebula ...

The first step in Eddington's reasoning was a simple question: Does the power that makes the stars shine come from the stars themselves, or does it come from somewhere else? And the answer he chose was that the power that makes the stars shine comes from the stars themselves. With that assumption, he laid the foundation for the now-accepted theory of stars powered by fusion within their cores. This theory has been developed over the ...
