231. The Activities of NGC 1097 [Thunderbolts Website]

This image from the European Southern Observatory shows the inner 5500-light-year region of the barred spiral galaxy NGC 1097. According to the press release, it shows a “ring of dust and gas” surrounding a “super-massive black hole” at the center and a “filamentary structure spiralling down” into the black hole. The press release notes that this Active Galactic Nucleus (AGN) at the center is fainter than most, indicating that “only a small amount of gas and stars” are falling into the black hole. The latest generations of telescopes can see ever more details in ever smaller fields of view. A crippling side effect, however, is the loss ...

They were nicknamed "blueberries" because of their grey-blue color and the way they are embedded in the Martian rocks "like blueberries in a muffin." After spectroscopic analysis, the Martian blueberries were identified as hematite concretions. But knowing what they are called is not the same thing as understanding how they were made. Hematite concretions are one of several types of spherical rocks that are found on Earth but are not completely understood. In the center photo above, we see the Martian blueberries. Compare these with hematite concretions from ...

233. Stacked Ancestors [Thunderbolts Website]

This theme is associated with the wider category of “axis symbols.” Axis symbols, in turn, have been associated with plasma formations observed in laboratory-generated high-energy-density electrical discharges. It is considered that the theme of stacked ancestors originated in observations by ancient peoples of an unusual and prolonged “auroral pillar”. A wide range of cultures worldwide portrayed their legendary ancestors in a stack, the one piled above the other. In some places, such as the Pacific northwest coast of North-America and parts of Melanesia, this peculiar tradition expressed itself through the art of wood-carving in the phenomenon known as "totem poles". The specimen shown here was carved in 2000 ...

234. Titan's Strange Atmosphere [Thunderbolts Website]
... home updates news and views picture of the day resources team a role for you contact us Credit: Image: ESA/NASA/JPL/University of Arizona home pic of the day archive subject index abstract archive Links: Holoscience Electric Cosmos The Universe Plasma Cosmology Society for Interdisciplinary Studies educational resources Aeon Journal Jan 20, 2005 Titan's Strange Atmosphere Titan's atmosphere has scientists puzzled. Unlike all other large moons, it has an atmosphere. And that atmosphere is the densest of any terrestrial planet after Venus. It's also far more extensive than Venus's, stretching out to about 880 km. The haze layers seen in the image above reach a height of 400 km above Titan. The plethora of puzzles evokes contrary guesses at answers from scientists. Toby Owens, principal scientist at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, surmised: "What we've got is a very primitive atmosphere that has been preserved for 4.6 billion years. Titan gives us the chance for cosmic time travel... going back to the very earliest days of Earth when it had a similar atmosphere." The ...

... home updates news and views picture of the day resources team a role for you contact us Credit: P. Rona (OAR/NURP/NOAA) home pic of the day archive subject index abstract archive Links: Holoscience Electric Cosmos The Universe Plasma Cosmology Society for Interdisciplinary Studies educational resources Aeon Journal Nov 11, 2004 Volcanic Cradle of Life Scientists have long wondered where the simple organic molecules (peptide chains) that could have formed the first life on Earth originated. According to accepted theory, these ingredients were rare in the environment of the Earth billions of years ago. But recent experiments have shown how peptide chains can build up from carbonyl sulfide (COS) in water. Carbonyl sulfide is common in the gases spewed out from volcanoes. The best location for such a natural event seems to be around the smoking underwater volcanic vents on the mid-oceanic ridges. Here volcanic elements are thickly deposited in warm water on the ocean floor. (See photo above) A rival theory, based on the fact that organic molecules have been observed in comet tails, ...

An increasing number of scholars now concede that the mythical tree was essentially a symbol of the cosmic axis, the column that links the rotational poles of the earth to the poles of heaven as they appear from any place on earth. Seeing the connection of the tree to the axis is an important step, but it is only the first of many to follow. The axis as it appears today is no more than an abstraction, describing the movement of the stars and placing a grid on the map of the heavens. The mystery is that ancient cultures unanimously and insistently described the axis as a visible object, a stupendous pillar of light dominating the ancient sky. Myths ...

But the plasma focus effect, which can be studied in a laboratory, better accounts for the cosmic effects attributed to black holes. The caption to the above images explains: “Astronomers using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope have identified the source of a mysterious blue light surrounding a super-massive black hole in our neighboring Andromeda Galaxy (M31). Though the light has puzzled astronomers for more than a decade, the new discovery makes the story even more mysterious. The blue light is coming from a disk of hot, young stars that are whipping around the black hole in much the same way as planets in our solar system are revolving around the Sun. Astronomers are perplexed about how the ...

238. Seeing Circuits (2) [Thunderbolts Website]
... home updates news and views picture of the day resources team a role for you contact us Image: Magnetic vector map of M82; diagram of galactic circuit home pic of the day archive subject index abstract archive Links: Holoscience Electric Cosmos The Universe Plasma Cosmology Society for Interdisciplinary Studies educational resources Aeon Journal Jan 13, 2005 Seeing Circuits (2) In Part 1 we listed some of the effects of circuits in space and noted that they were all power-consuming effects. We asked: Where is the power source? The power could be generated locally. The rotational inertia of a body could drive the circuit in much the same way as a water-driven turbine in a dam drives a generator. Early plasma physicists often simply assumed such a mechanism. But because smaller-scale circuits in space are invariably coupled to larger-scale circuits (such as the coupling between the auroral circuit and the "solar wind" circuit), the Electric Universe posits a remote power supply. An electrical current in plasma will generate its own magnetic field and "self constrict" the current channel. This ...

Why do most meteors become visible to the eye when they are about 60 miles in altitude but a few appear at up to twice that height? Why are some meteors accompanied by electrophonic sound that is simultaneous with their flaring up? In the evening of October 9, 1992 a fireball appeared in the sky over West Virginia. This distinctively green-hued fireball traveled visibly over 700 km in 40+ seconds. Thousands of people saw it, and dozens reported observations that enabled scientists to determine its path and behavior. At least 16 different witnesses videotaped it. At some point in its flight this meteoric fireball fragmented with significant longitudinal displacement of fragments and slight transverse displacement for some of the ...

Spectacular images and data from space are a mark of technical proficiency, but a larger field of theoretical possibilities can no longer be ignored. The caption to this sequence of time-lapse images of trenches on Mars south polar cap explains: “Each year that Mars Global Surveyor has been in orbit, the landforms of the south polar residual cap have gotten smaller, and the carbon dioxide removed from the cap has not been re-deposited. The implication is that Mars presently has a warm (and possibly warming) climate, with new carbon dioxide going into the atmosphere every ...
