For the electrical theorists, the contrast also illustrates the crucial distinction between electrical deposition and electrical excavation.

Wal Thornhill >> >> >> >> >> >> >> >> >> >---<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< A MATTER OF DEFINITION Mel Acheson Is plasma an ionized gas or is gas a neutralized plasma? Can we understand plasma by adding a few magnetic properties to what we already know about a gas, or is a gas a degenerate plasma that provides scarcely a clue toward understanding most plasma behavior? This is a matter of definition, but the dictionary in which we might look up the definiens has yet to be written. We can anticipate a possible answer from a similar matter of definition that was resolved a couple of centuries ago: Is a substance defined by its composition ...

The Cygnus Loop is thought to be a middle-aged remnant of a nearby supernova, the collapse of a star whose nuclear fuel has been used up. From a plasma cosmology point of view, a supernova has nothing to do with the hypothetical nuclear engine. It is an electric event, perhaps the explosion of a double layer in a galactic circuit. The aurora-like curtains and filaments seen here have more in common with electric currents in plasma than with mechanical models based ...

284. A “Doomsday” Stellar Flare [Thunderbolts Website]
... magnetic field. It can be produced in laboratories with electricity. Gravity or hot gas doesn t come close. In disregarding the laws of electricity, physicists can offer no plausible mechanisms of gravity or gas dynamics to explain such accelerations. They postulate “non-electrical” mechanisms for cosmic synchrotron radiation by extrapolating mechanical equations far beyond the domain in which those equations have been tested. They get away with this only because space probes can t check on them. High-energy flares on the sun arise from the breakdown of the current-regulating plasma sheath of the photosphere. The resulting "short circuit" causes the bright X-ray flash and acceleration of photospheric matter in the powerful electric field of the chromosphere. In the case of the II Pegasi explosion, the flash of X-rays was sufficient to overwhelm Swift s X-Ray Telescope. In the quiet Sun, this same field of the photospheric sheath accelerates protons into the corona, where they collide with the coronal plasma and raise its temperature to millions of degrees. The high energy of the II Pegasi flare is beyond the range ...

The caption accompanying this image (from the Mars Global Surveyor Mars Orbiter Camera) calls the light-colored flat-top rock with a moat around it a butte. The caption continues: “The dark landscape that surrounds the butte was once covered by the same rocks that make up this lonely remnant.” This is an understandable assumption in view of the butte s position on the slope that runs from the 4-kilometer-high southern hemisphere of Mars to the 2-kilometer-low northern hemisphere. But it overlooks a lot of features and a lot of possibilities. ...

It has now been more than two years since the fiery destruction of the shuttle Columbia on February 1, 2003. The disaster killed all seven astronauts on board and dealt one of the most severe blows ever to America s space program. But as astronauts now prepare to ride another shuttle into space, few Americans are aware of the most critical issue raised by the Columbia disaster. Did a super-bolt of lightning --called "megalightning"--strike Columbia, causing the breakup of the craft? Shocking evidence that this is so includes the image above, taken from the TV program "Megalightning. ...

Morse Protostar HH-34 lies about 1500 light-years away in the Orion Nebula star-forming region. Some features of HH-34 are understood some are not. At the core of Herbig-Haro 34 lies a seemingly typical young star. This star, though, somehow ejects energetic "bullets" of high-energy particles. 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 Feb 28, 2005 A Peek at Star Formation We see stars. Then we ask questions: What are they? Where do they come from? We can t get close enough to find direct answers, so we recall things we already know that appear similar or at least relevant. We ve had pretty good luck explaining things with gravity and ideal gas laws. Perhaps we could start with an extended cloud of hydrogen (we have to start with something) floating ...

During the past few centuries, missionaries and anthropologists have collected hundreds of versions from all parts of the world.

290. Comet X-rays [Thunderbolts Website]
... Sun. The Sun's radial electric field is weak but constant with distance in interplanetary space. In a constant radial electric field, the voltage decreases linearly with distance. A comet on an elongated orbit spends most of its time far from the Sun and acquires a charge in balance with the voltage at that distance. But when a comet speeds inward for a quick spin around the Sun, the voltage of the comet becomes increasingly out of balance with that nearer the Sun. Most of the voltage difference between the comet and the solar plasma is taken up in a double layer of charge, called a plasma sheath, that surrounds the comet. When the electrical stress is great enough, the sheath glows and appears as the typical comet coma and tail. Diffuse electrical discharges occur in the sheath and at the nucleus, radiating a variety of frequencies, including x-rays. The highest voltage differences occur at the comet nucleus and across the plasma sheath. So where the sheath is most compressed, in the sunward direction, the electric field is strong enough to accelerate charged ...
