271. Thoth [Journals] [Thoth]
... • The great Saturnian crescent, turning in the sky This comprehensive notebook includes many images and themes yet to be published in any other medium.- "THE ELECTRIC UNIVERSE" - Notebook by Wal Thornhill $24.95 A startling vision of the physical world and the interactions of planets in earlier times, based on the surprising revelations of plasma physics. The notebook includes - • The Sun as a stupendous ball of lightning • Venus' remarkable cometary tail • Lightning of the gods: violent scarring of planets and moons by electrical discharges • The electric Earth • Laboratory proof of physical effects faster than the speed of light- AEON: A Journal of Myth and Science 1-Yr $ ...
272. The Demands of the Saturnian Configuration Theory [Journals] [Aeon]
... .  David Talbott, on the other hand, had 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 toward Earth.  Additionally, Wallace Thornhill believes he has recognized this ethereal pillar as a sustained plasma discharge in the form of Birkeland current.  Now perhaps it is possible that all three functions described above came into play at once or in succession- and Talbott himself seems to accept Thornhill's explanation in conjunction with his own - but this might be stretching things a little. One objection that can be raised ...
273. Vox Popvli [Journals] [Aeon]
... reiterate my objections to Velikovsky's work. And yet, I had to come up with something that would, at least, relate to it. The chapter in question, now turned into the paper which has evoked Zemel's criticism, speaks highly of Velikovsky's accomplishments without exhibiting my general disagreements with him. Needless to say, those portions dealing with plasma cosmology and extra solar systems were added in 2000 in an attempt to bring the record up to date. Following the receipt of Zemel's criticism, I went back to the 1970s version in order to see whether I had originally referenced the information which Zemel has now questioned. I was not in the least surprised to see that I had ...
274. On the Advance Claim of Jupiter's Radionoises [Journals] [Kronos]
... of the universe in general). The discovery of the Jovian noises (1955), and of the terrestrial magnetosphere (1958), claimed by me also in the Forum Lecture of 1953, and of the interplanetary magnetic field centered on the Sun and rotating with it (1960), and of the solar wind or uninterrupted streams of plasma (1960), made the purely gravitational system of the World untenable. Yet among astronomers, as late as 1971, the full significance of the fact for the understanding of the structure of the universe only very slowly finds its way, as can be exemplified by a paper by Prof. Ivan King(*) on "The ...
275. Addenda Et Corrigenda ... [Journals] [Kronos]
... . Vaughan To the Editor of KRONOS: My paper "On the Convection of Electric Charge by the Rotating Earth" (KRONOS, Vol. 2, No. 3, pp. 12-30) suggests that "waves of potential gradient" (Loeb) initiated by solar flares may transiently alter the electrical balance between the earth and the interplanetary plasma, imposing unusual electric-field strengths (increases or decreases) on the magnetospheric and atmospheric regions. According to Science News for June 18, 1977, R. Holzworth and F. Mozer reported just such an effect at a recent meeting of the American Geophysical Union. The two Berkeley physicists examined more than 50 hours of atmospheric electric-field data from ...

... : 2. The sentence which reads- "The magnetomechanical linkage transmitting the magnetic forces to all of Earth's mass was first of all that between magnetic field and the electrically conductive portions of Earth's mass ." The underlined section should have read- ". .. significantly magnetizable...iron-nickel core..." not including "plasma sheath, salty bodies of water and the more conductive portions of mantle and crust." To which he adds: "The situation was less hairy than indicated by the misstatement." Some slight errors also managed to creep into the article by Tammy Jo Eckhart- "A General Introduction to Amazon Mythology in the Greco-Roman World"- ...
277. Velikovsky: Science or Anti-Science? [Journals] [Pensee]
... , not a few minutes. Also, the charge or magnetic dipole strength is quite large. For example, one current hypothesis holds that the sun lost its initially large angular momentum by magnetic braking. The time scale hypothesized is millions of years, the magnetic field thousands of times larger than the sun has at present, and the solar plasma being expelled orders of magnitude larger than in the interplanetary medium at present (in fact, more material than in the present solar system outside the sun). If one calculates what sort of masses, electrical charges, or magnetic strengths would be required to do what Velikovsky asks, the numbers are orders of magnitude beyond belief. For ...

280. Electrical Origin of the Outbursts on Io [Journals] [SIS Review]
... values show that the range of conductances through crust and core that can be expected would favor a current flow through hot spots in the crust and through the core, over an ionospheric path or over a diffuse flow through the crust. 11. Contact resistance arises from the various dissipative effects at such an interface. The kinetic energy of the plasma charge carriers is dissipated there, and the emission of charge from the solid consumes energy, some of which is left in the surface layers. 12. Suggestion by D. Soter (private communication). 13. A. J. Dessler private communication. 14. I am grateful for discussions with S. Soter and S. ...
