Astronomers today are taking pictures of something they call magnetic reconnection on the Sun, and space probes are measuring something else in the Earth's magnetosphere that has also been labeled magnetic reconnection. If you ask a plasma cosmologist about these, he'll tell you that the astronomers don't know what they're talking about. They're looking at well-understood plasma phenomena, exploding double layers and electric discharge, not magnetic reconnection. Which side will triumph? Here's how it's shaping up. Now ...

What astronomers actually see are intense magnetic fields that pulsate in seconds or even in fractions of a second. And occasionally, sometimes repeatedly, magnetars emit a burst of gamma rays. From 50,000 light years away and for a tenth of a second, the most energetic burst ever detected momentarily outshone the full moon. So astronomers asked a computer if it could produce something like this extraordinary event using a model based only on the forces of gravity and magnetism. Freed from the world of observation and experiment, the computer program hummed and churned, initially constructing ...

Traditional geology has over many years gradually built up a picture of the Earth's interior. Geologists assumed that gravity pulled upper layers of rock onto lower layers, uniformly increasing the pressure toward the center. Laboratory experiments provided some indications of how rocks responded to increasing pressure and temperature, and theoretical extrapolations from these values provided a basis for guessing what could be going on far beneath the deepest drill holes. The result is the diagram above. A thin crust of light rock floats on the denser material of the mantle, which in turn surrounds an ...

The waterspout shows us once again that plasma behavior can take many different forms. There are two types of waterspout; one type is simply a tornado over water. The other (true waterspout) is less powerful than a tornado. It forms in a different way and often in a different season. It dissipates quickly if it happens to move over land. Waterspouts occur in oceans or large lakes. They are common in the Great Lakes in months when the water is warmest --August, September, and October. They ...

47. preview [Thunderbolts Website]
... and Wallace Thornhill Thunderbolts of the Gods by David Talbott and Wallace Thornhill introduces the reader to a former age of planetary instability and earthshaking electrical events. The 108-page full-color monograph, based on the life s work of the two authors, offers a revolutionary synthesis of historical investigation and the newly discovered “Electric Universe.” Talbott and Thornhill claim that cosmic upheaval occurred so recently as to have profoundly affected early human cultures, provoking “incomprehensible” myths, symbols, and commemorative practices. Through a synthesis of ancient testimony, high-energy plasma experiments, and space age discoveries, the authors bring the ancient world to life. If their hypothesis is correct, it will surely alter many paths of scientific investigation as well. The little-known study of powerful electrical discharges in plasma is a new and exciting development in “plasma cosmology, with profound implication for space age astronomy. Talbott and Thornhill have followed these developments because they see plasma science as a bridge between the ancient and modern worlds. To advance their case, they present side-by-side comparisons of laboratory plasma experiments and globally ...

48. Of Pith Balls and Plasma [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 Credit: Wal Thornhill Oct 17, 2006 Of Pith Balls and Plasma The electric force is never mentioned in astronomy although it is the most powerful force in Nature. It is dismissed because simplistic electrostatic models do not match observations. Yet plasma cosmologists are able to successfully match electrodynamic models to observations without conjuring invisible matter and inventing new forces. A common mistake when first trying to understand the Electric Universe is to think in terms of electrostatics. Experiments with pith balls in Freshman Physics Lab come to mind. With a little imagination and by plugging larger numbers into the equations a model of “the pith ball sun” can be constructed. This model is not too different from the familiar gravitational model. Most of the underlying assumptions are preserved: an isolated body at equilibrium; a point force distributed spherically (decreasing with the square of the distance from the point); conditions of isotropy, continuity and homogeneity ...

Although there is only one image, the mainstream view and the plasma view see entirely different objects. The Astronomy Picture of the Day described this image this way: “What causes this unusual structure near the center of our Galaxy? The long parallel rays slanting across the top of the above radio image are known collectively as the Galactic Center Radio Arc and jut straight out from the Galactic plane. The Radio Arc is connected to the Galactic center by strange curving filaments known as the Arches. The bright radio structure at the bottom right likely surrounds a black hole at the Galactic center and is known as Sagittarius A*. One origin hypothesis holds that the Radio Arc and the Arches have their geometry ...
