321. Pompous Asimov [Books]
... demonstrate. In this section, I shall turn from Asimov's pseudo-scientific attacks upon Velikovsky and look at one of Asimov's own attempts to be a scientist. What we shall find, ironically, is that it too serves as evidence for the Affair. I am referring to the question of why there are no moons orbiting the planet Mercury. As plasma physicist C. J. Ransom reported in the journal KRONOS, (II, 3, pp. 81-83), Asimov, in his 1959 book Of Time and Space and Other Things, offered an explanation derived from the theory of the "Roche limit," the distance within which any satellite of a planet would be broken to ...
322. Uniformitarian Or Catastrophist? Ice Age Theory [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... this material came from asteroids, meteorites, comets, the Earth, etc.? The measurements are not in any way indicative of these origins. But, of course, this material could well have come from a giant, super-hot planet such as Venus, as Velikovsky suggests, as it neared the Earth with its immense tail laden with plasma, gases, and particles. At such extraordinarily high temperatures that Venus experienced, as would be expected from a body derived from the silicate-iron core of Jupiter, hotter than nine times the surface of the sun, its atmosphere and molten-gaseous core would expand tremendously to permit it to form an immense tail of gas, plasma, and particulate ...
323. The Velikovsky Affair [Books] [de Grazia books]
... in Velikovsky's thesis suggests that solar and planetary charges are acquired suddenly. Furthermore, Menzel's necessary assumptions as to the dielectric properties of the sun, earth, and space were wholly gratuitous and unsupported by observational evidence. (It has been established in space probes since 1960 that interplanetary space, especially close in to the sun, is filled with plasma. Thus Menzel's assumptions are inapplicable to the situation. Furthermore, in 1960, Prof. V. A. Bailey of the University of Sydney, Australia, reported : It has been found possible to account for the known orders of magnitude of five different astronomical phenomena... by the single hypothesis that a star ...

325. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... Scientific American Feb 1990, pp. 26-33; New Scientist 24.2 .90, pp. 53-57 Scientific American has a detailed article on various aspects of the Sun's variability and its effects on Earth. Surprise, surprise, this article is exclusively an exposition of fluctuations in the Sun's electromagnetic spectrum. New Scientist gives details of the Sun's plasma and its effects on the Earth's magnetic field, on auroras, etc. These two items add up to the fact that we do, indeed, live in an electric universe. Demise of Big Bang?source: Scientific American Jan 1990, p. 19 A basic concept in astronomy is that redshifts occur as a result of the ...
326. Gases, Poisons and Food [Books] [de Grazia books]
... hours and for several days suffered from throat irritation [1 ]. If the intruder is admitted, one may grant the occurrence of gases. An actual impact is not necessary. Can a gas cloud descend through the atmosphere without exploding or burning? It would have to be charged oppositely to the Earth's surface and buffered during descend by a plasma. Even under normal conditions, the positions of light and heavy gases are sometimes reversed in the disorderly atmosphere. The Great Chicago Fire, and forest fires which burned out millions of acres of land in Wisconsin, Michigan, Western America and Canada broke out on the same day in the fall of 1871. E.K . Komarek ...
327. The Inconstant Heavens [Books] [de Grazia books]
... turn away from the Sun for the same reason that the smoke from a fire ascends perpendicularly, or in the case of a moving body obliquely, in the atmosphere [3 ]. Thereafter, the case of planets like Earth or Jupiter, which are surrounded by a magnetosphere and move through the magnetic field permeating the solar system and the plasma winds that sweep through it, will come to quantitative analysis, too. With new claimants to participation in the mechanism of the solar system, the problem of its stability is brought into new light. PSYCHOLOGICAL PREMISES Because of his psychoanalytic training and experience Velikovsky was able to realize that men tend to shunt off as fables the accumulated memories ...
328. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... SIS Chronology and Catastrophism Workshop 1986 No 2 (Feb 1987) Home | Issue Contents Monitor Venus Volcanism?source: NEW SCIENTIST 15.5 .86, p.35 The theory of active volcanoes on Venus takes a knock. The radiobursts detected by Pioneer Venus Orbiter seem not to have been generated by lightning over erupting volcanoes but by plasma instabilities in the ionosphere. Further analysis of the data failed to confirm the original pattern of "clustering" over the highland regions and showed equal frequencies all over the planet. However, there has been a drop in the sulphur dioxide levels in the atmosphere since 1978, so perhaps there had been a recent major eruption? Santorini and ...
329. Letters [Journals] [SIS Review]
... also interested to note that the front cover illustration, although chosen to accompany the article by the Palmers about AD history, also fitted much pre-Christian imagery. Examples were pointed out by Charles Raspil at the SIS Silver Jubilee Event (C &CR 2000:1 , pp. 57-58). Raspil's contention was that these were originally seen in plasma configurations at the time of high electromagnetic disturbance around Earth. These images also fit the Polar Configuration as exemplified by Talbott, Cochrane & Cardona. Much pre-Christian imagery of a central figure with raised arms, flanked by two other figures, is found across Europe and Asia. In Mohenjo Daro of the 3rd millennium BC (orthodox) was ...
330. Letters [Journals] [SIS Review]
... benefit of giving a book to a specialist is he can put it into perspective, inevitably coloured by his own views, and quickly assimilate and simplify the technical content for the reader. The drawback is that he may not appreciate how a person new to the subject will react to it. I have no quarrel with McIlmoyle's review of the plasma theory chapters. However the early part of the book contains a marvellous sweep through the history of astronomy and cosmology, explaining the roles of the key players in the cosmological arena. These include the early Egyptian priests, Anaxagoras, Plato, Pythagoras, Ptolemy, Diocletian, Augustine, Severus of Antioch, the Muslim liberators (i . ...
