201. Thoth Vol IV, No 10: June 15, 2000 [Journals] [Thoth]
... ^2 )] Well, of course physicists didn't stop with the assumption. They tested it, and the experiment (yes, one experiment) showed the new equation was spot-on (given the 2-significant-figure accuracy of the experiment). Resnick & Halliday describe the experiment. Now keep in mind that Resnick & Halliday never mention Hannes Alfven or plasma. "H .E . Ives and G.R . Stilwell carried out such a precision experiment in 1938. They sent a beam of hydrogen atoms, generated in a gas discharge, down a tube at speed u .. .. They could observe light emitted by these atoms in a direction opposite to u .. . ...
202. Earth's Gaseous Core (Comments) [Journals] [Catastrophist Geology]
... - spinning within the last of said cloud. 5) The force of gravity at the geocenter is, and always was, null once the vortex formed; so there could not have occurred any "accumulation to a compacted center". 6) In case the protoplanetary cloud should have originally been at very high temperature, any matter in plasma state that was shut in by the first shell' would, by continuous pressure of its own radiation against the inner surface, have tended to be forced into the geocenter; some small portion may still be there, forming a lesser spheroid of unknown diameter spinning within the larger one; it may possibly be still radiating heat and light ...
203. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Review]
... of the year concerns Venus. The SOHO satellite has detected a giant ion-packed tail which stretches more than 600 times as far as astronomers realised, almost far enough to contact Earth at certain times. The tail is described as consisting of lots of stringy things like those of some comets which can have several ion tails'. This highly structured plasma tail defies conventional theory but conventional astronomers will not consider the role of electricity in space. The flow of electricity in a plasma produces just such twisting filaments, as pointed out long ago by Wal Thornhill and the twisted, braided hair of the Venus comet has been described over and over again in myths, as interpreted by Velikovsky, ...
204. Solar System Studies [Journals] [Aeon]
... metals and metal compounds or mainly of atmospheric gasses and low density liquids. The Solar System milieu is isolated. The Sun is well out along the Orion spiral arm of the Milky Way galaxy-one of billions of galaxies in the known universe. Ambient space is nearly an absolute vacuum at about 2.7 K except for cosmic rays, a plasma of free electrons, a cross wind of hydrogen and helium molecules and ions and the Solar Wind of positively charged ions which is continuously accelerated away from the Sun, mostly close to the plane of its equator. In addition, the Sun produces a complete gamut of electromagnetic radiations including visible light in all directions. In the sections which ...
205. Forum [Journals] [SIS Review]
... we can take an example from terrestrial mechanics to illustrate it. If an anti-aircraft shell misses its target and explodes in the air, its centre of gravity will follow the original trajectory even after the explosion, at least initially, until the effect of the increased air resistance becomes noticeable. In space there is no air resistance, and the plasma forces are very small, so the centre of gravity will keep following the old orbit, unless, of course, other bodies become involved. You may wonder how a body that consists mainly of light elements like hydrogen, can eject a solid body like Venus. If an explosion really took place, the answer is simple: Venus ...
206. The Orbits of Venus [Journals] [Pensee]
... From: Pensée Vol. 3 No 1: (Winter 1973) "Immanuel Velikovsky Reconsidered III" Home | Issue Contents The Orbits of Venus C. J. Ransom and L. H. Hoffee Copyright 1972 by C. J. Ransom and L. H. Hoffee Dr. Ransom is a plasma physicist at the Electro-optics and Reconnaissance Group of General Dynamics, Convair Aerospace Division, Fort Worth, Texas. Hoffee is an optical engineer. In 1950, Immanuel Velikovsky suggested that several orbital changes had occurred among members of the solar system (1 ). These changes resulted in near-collisions between celestial bodies and a reordering of the solar system. In the following paragraphs, ...
207. The Demands of the Saturnian Configuration Theory [Journals] [SIS Review]
... is a colossal Rankine vortex . Talbott, on the other hand, originally explained the polar column as a stream of debris stretching between Saturn and Earth  but later amended this to a stream of debris attracted from Mars towards Earth . Wallace Thornhill believes he has recognised this ethereal pillar as a sustained plasma discharge in the form of Birkeland current . Maybe all three of these functions came into play at once or in succession (Talbott himself seems to accept Thornhill's explanation in conjunction with his own ) but this might be stretching things a little. One objection to Talbott's interpretation, meanwhile, is the lack of ...

... available, so that the voltage gradient is of little importance. In other words, conduction would be limited by a certain saturation current rather than by a certain conductivity. This may be correct, but it is hard to say how large the saturation current would be, as we do not know very much about the composition of gas or plasma in interplanetary space during the millennia following the Deluge. Even if there were no external carriers at all, however, the strong voltage gradient postulated by Crew is able to produce all the carriers required for quickly transporting the major part of the charge out into space. To carry away the whole electric charge requires 3.27 x 1033 ...
209. Prologue: The Good Earth (Mankind in Amnesia) [Velikovsky]
... the Earth is not located in the center of the system, it occupies the preferred position and possesses the optimal conditions for life and its progress. The Sun is a blazing flame. Mercury, the planet closest to the Sun, is so hot on its illuminated side that some metals would be molten; its face is licked by solar plasma and it has only a rudiment or a vestige of an atmosphere. Venus is enshrouded in massive clouds of dust and gases and is well over 8oo F. at its ground surface, equally on its lighted and shadowed sides. Its period of daylight is as long as fifty-eight terrestrial days; its night is of equal length. The ...

... From: Pensée Vol. 2 No 2: (May 1972) "Immanuel Velikovsky Reconsidered I" Home | Issue Contents How Stable Is the Solar System?C.J . Ransom Dr. C.J . Ransom, a plasma physicist, has taught at the University of Texas. Currently he works in the Electro-optics and Reconnaissance Group of General Dynamics, Convair Aerospace Division, Fort Worth, Texas. He teaches a course in Velikovsky theory at Texas Christian University, and has lectured on the subject at other universities in Texas, Switzerland, Germany, and England. The scientific literature today abounds with catastrophic hypotheses not unlike the events Velikovsky described in 1950. (Harold ...
