221. A Flickering “Black Hole” [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 Illustration of the imagined effects of a black hole hidden in the center of the “accretion disk” GRO J1655. Credit: A. Hobart, CXC Aug 09, 2006 A Flickering “Black Hole” Astronomers claim that a celestial object called GRO J1655 hides a black hole. But why does its surrounding plasma flicker 450 times a second? Because the black hole is “rotating very rapidly,” astronomers say. Astronomers tell us that the “microquasar” at the center of GRO J1655 is seven times as massive as our Sun. It cannot be seen because it is a black hole formed from the collapse of an old star, now sucking in matter from surrounding space. Guided by nothing more than Einstein's view of gravity, the astronomers “know” it is there because of the energetic radiation and jets issuing from a very small region of space. To derive the mass of a black hole, mathematicians ...

In the old religion of Vedic India, the vajrá was the powerful thunderbolt wielded by the storm god Indra in his momentous combat with the dragon Vritra. Such myths, of course, were rife in the ancient world, but what is striking is that Buddhist cultures still worship ...
223. Electric Universe Predictions for Space Probe [SIS Internet Digest $]
... several months orbiting the comet nucleus making high-resolution maps of its surface. The spacecraft will deploy a lander with a 1-meter-long (3.3-foot) drill to collect samples that will be analyzed on-site; an attempt will be made to return a sample to Earth in 2010. Wal Thornhill replies: I predict that unless NASA has begun to take notice of The Electric Universe before they perform this comet caper, they will be in for some nasty surprises. To begin with, it will be an interesting exercise to orbit an object that is firing plasma beams and modifying its apparent gravity in the process. Any object that tries to land on it will need lightning arrestors fitted to equalize the voltage differences before touchdown. But a more serious problem will occur after landing. Any metal object protruding from the surface of the comet will become a prime candidate for the focus of one of the comet's plasma discharges. In that case, even if the electronics survives, radio communications will be lost until the nucleus rotates the lander to the night side. Any lander should be rigorously tested ...

Two different scales of plasma phenomena. We have a good understanding of what causes the city lights. We can even understand that the source of their light is not necessarily where the lights are. There are generators connected to dams and coal-fired furnaces and even windmill farms that produce the electricity. Then high-tension wires carry the electricity cross-country to where it is needed. It is transformed and distributed by substations, then millions of individual users tap into the currents to light up the night. If you stand beneath the high-tension wires, you can hear the buzz of electricity passing, but from space you only see the city lights at the end of the line. Similarly, the electricity that lights up the auroras is produced ...
225. Tycho's Star in Theory and Practice [Thunderbolts Website]
... which means that they re not coming from “hot gas.” (The million-degree temperature is not a direct measurement but is calculated according to how hot a gas must be to emit x-rays with the observed energy.) Conventional astronomers think that they can adjust the theory to make the outside shock wave accelerate the nuclei of atoms to cosmic ray energies. Then if they see the blue filaments and the close-following debris as the results of this acceleration, looking and seeing may again harmonize. But what else could it be? Plasma theory explains supernovas as stars that develop instabilities in the galactic Birkeland currents driving them. In the same way that an unstable double layer (DL) on the Sun explodes into a flare, a DL that encompasses an entire star explodes into a supernova. The energy is released in the acceleration of ions, primarily along the axis of the current, and in non-thermal radiation, especially radio and x-ray emission. [As an aside, it s amusing to note that conventional theory considers anything with a temperature of millions of ...

But this ROSAT image from March 27, 1996 reveals a comet radiating x-rays as intense as those from the x- ray stars that are ROSAT's usual target. Why point an x-ray telescope at Comet Hyakutake? Nothing in accepted theory would lead an astronomer to expect a comet to shine in x-rays. A comet is believed to be a dirty snowball slowly wasting away in the heat of the Sun.

227. Electrical Birthing of Stars [Thunderbolts Website]
... the cloud, nudging it to become a star”. We ve seen this many times before: a new discovery evokes statements of surprise, and magnetic fields are mysteriously factored in to save appearances but with no mention of the electric currents that create magnetic fields. How does this happen? It happens because electricity is re-defining the physical universe, while conventional astronomers hold steadfastly to an electrically neutral, gravity-only universe. No official acknowledgement of this crisis has ever been issued by mainstream institutions. Yet without electric neutrality across the plasma of interstellar and intergalactic space, popular cosmology loses its foundation. Not only the gravity-based models, but everything conjured through the magic of gravitational mathematics (from dark matter and dark energy to black holes) will evaporate. There is a simple, readily observed, and easily testable physical process that accounts for the discoveries in R Corona Australis. Those who have studied plasma and electricity in the laboratory discuss the dynamic all the time. The work began with the Norwegian experimental researcher Kristian Birkeland, and culminated in the pioneering life ...
228. Origins of Rock Art [Thunderbolts Website]

Images such as this one from New Mexico are commonly assumed to have shamanistic or spiritual meaning. But this only begs the question of origins. The Hopi, for example, attribute spiritual meanings to the images on the rocks, but they also claim the originators were the "Ancient People" who inhabited the mesas before the Hopi came. No one knows what meaning those Ancient People attributed to the images. A suggestive light is cast on this question by Anthony Peratt's recognition that rock art forms are identical to forms generated by instabilities in high-energy plasma discharges. He presented this idea in the IEEE Transactions on Plasma Science, Special Issue on Space Plasmas, December, 2003. Peratt is one of a handful of ...
229. Remarks on Solar Jet Stream Weather [SIS Internet Digest $]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 1997:2 (Feb 1998) Home¦ Issue Contents Thoth VOL I, No. 22. August 31, 1997 Remarks on Solar Jet Stream Weather I've downloaded the images and text [of the above article to find that it offers startling confirmation of the "Electric Universe" model, which sees the Sun being powered externally by plasma currents from the galaxy. Few, if any of the features on the Sun have any right being there if it is purely an isolated nuclear source of energy. For example, if the Sun is an isolated body in space radiating away its internal energy, then it should have no "weather". If the solar wind is carrying energy away from the Sun, slowing it down, then it's equator should be spinning more slowly than the higher latitudes, not faster. But if the Sun is being powered externally, like an electric motor, the equatorial plasma will be driven to rotate faster creating complex electromagnetic interactions in the conductive plasma of the Sun, interpreted in the attached article ...
