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 ...

52. Our Universe: Unlocking its Mysteries [SIS Internet Digest $]
... may have been the result of a close pass-by of an asteroid or comet. Perhaps an inherent instability of the alignment resulted in its natural dissolution. Whatever the cause of the breakup, we know the final result is what we see today- the placid, almost circular, well separated orbits of our present solar system. Interacting Plasmas: Many skeptics say that there is no mechanism that could have circularized the wildly divergent paths of the planets that were ejected from the polar configuration. Electrical Engineer, Donald Scott, points out that plasma physics shows us that planets can interact electrically if they are within each other's protective plasma sheaths (magnetospheres). Electrical repulsion that is alternatively felt (when planets' plasma sheaths intersect) and then not felt (when the sheaths do not intersect) could circularize orbits relatively quickly. In addition there is strong evidence that gravity and mass itself is dependent on electrical charge. Dinosaurs Are Impossible in Today's Gravity: Another question that relates to the enigma of how Earth is different today from ancient times is the size of the giant ...

The Chandra news release announcing this new image of the center of the Milky Way said that the X-ray spectrum of the gases "is consistent with a hot gas cloud that contains two components --10- million-degree Celsius gas and 100-million-degree gas." This result was unexpected and difficult to explain. The press release describes the problem in greater detail: "Shock waves from supernova explosions are the most likely explanation for heating the 10-million-degree gas, but how the 100-million-degree gas is heated is not known. Ordinary supernova shock waves won't work, and heating by very high-energy particles produces ...

Mission scientists called it a “giant vortex of surprisingly complex structure and behavior located in the middle atmosphere at the north pole of the planet.” They assumed that a similar feature occurred at the south pole as well.* This polar “vortex” on Venus is the hottest spot in the planet s upper atmosphere. The diameter of the “collar” around the vortex is about 5000 km and the temperature contrast between the hottest part of the chevron-shaped dipoles and the coldest part of the collar is about 45 K. The configuration was not expected, and it remains an anomaly ...

Churchwell (University of Wisconsin) 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 Jul 27, 2004 Stellar Nurseries New, high resolution images challenge the traditional “nebular theory” of star and planet formation, revealing turbulent plasma and magnetic fields, the markers of electric currents. The nebular theory of star and planet formation from a cloud of gas and dust that collapses under its own gravity was proposed in the 18th century by Kant and Laplace. It was modified in the 19th century and again in the 20th century to accommodate objections. Because gravity is a very weak force, to collapse under its own weight the cloud needs to be cool and free from magnetic fields which might disturb the process. But in the stellar nurseries that have been identified, the new stars are embedded in turbulent regions of hot dust, glowing plasma ...

... that Venus sports a giant, ion-packed tail that stretches almost far enough to tickle the Earth when the two planets are in line with the Sun. "I didn't expect to find it," says team member Marcia Neugebauer of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California. "It's a really strong signal, and there's no doubt it's real." NASA's Pioneer Venus Orbiter first found the tail in the late 1970s. Around 70,000 kilometres from the planet, the spacecraft detected bursts of hot, energetic ions, or plasma. The tail exists because ions in Venus's upper atmosphere are bombarded by the solar wind, a stream of plasma that blows out from the Sun. But now Europe's Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO), a project partly sponsored by NASA, has shown that the tail stretches some 45 million kilometres into space, more than 600 times as far as anyone realised. This satellite, which sits about 1 5 million kilometres away from the Earth, passed through the tail last July, when it was roughly in line with Venus ...

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 because they contain hot plasma flowing along lines of constant magnetic field. Recent images from the Chandra ...

58. The Myth of Magnetic Reconnection [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: M. Aschwanden et al. (LMSAL), TRACE, NASA Jul 11, 2006 The Myth of Magnetic Reconnection Electrical engineers and plasma cosmologists will tell you that magnetic reconnection is one of the most contradictory ideas that astronomers ever derived from the mistaken belief that there are no electric currents in space. 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 given the same name. 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 that astronomers are looking at real phenomena rather than elegant equations, they realize that their equations aren't as predictive as they had hoped. ...

It can be in states that loosely resemble the other three, including the solid state, but there are always important differences. The media are biased. Not the news media, the media of human sensation. Of all the things we might sense, we pick out only a few. Our sensory system arose as an adaptation to the exigencies of living on the surface of a stony planet. One consequence is that sensations we classify as "solid"--things that are opaque, reflective, resistant to pressure, sharply bounded --seem more ...

Dragon-like monsters soaring across the heavens rank among the most enigmatic and fanciful icons of the ancient cultures. These mythical reptiles come adorned with feathers or wings, sprouting long-flowing hair and fiery, lightning-like emanations. Every detail of such beasts defies naturalistic reasoning. Yet accounts from widely separated cultures attribute many identical features to these biological absurdities. When researchers seeking to resolve a mystery have explored every possibility they can imagine, but find no answer, it ...
