71. Formation of Chondritic Meteorites and the Solar System [Journals] [SIS Review]
... in astronomy, from a recognised authority. Professor Hannes Alfven, when he received his Nobel Prize in Physics in 1970 spoke of studies of the electrical discharge phenomenon: most theoretical physicists looked down on this field, which was complicated and awkward... not at all suited for mathematically elegant theories'. Alfven felt that: the cosmical plasma physics of today .. . is to some extent the playground of theoreticians who have never seen a plasma in a laboratory. Many of them still believe in formulas which we know from laboratory experiment to be wrong .. . several of the basic concepts on which theories of cosmical plasmas are founded are not applicable to the condition prevailing ...

... away after a convenient time interval. Studies have shown that the stellar wind would merely shift the disk further away and not disperse it. Alfvén argued that the most efficient (and Nature is nothing if not efficient) method to accrete matter over cosmic distances is that of the electromagnetic "pinch effect" caused by parallel electric current filaments in plasma. The electromagnetic accretion force diminishes slowly with distance from the filament axis, rather than rapidly with the square of the distance as we find with gravity. The result is condensed, rotating objects strung along the dusty current filaments. The spin axes of stars formed in this manner are aligned with the filaments. Such alignments have been discovered ...
73. Thoth Vol VII, No 1: Feb 28, 2003 [Journals] [Thoth]
... July 15 and were colorized to highlight details. MYSTERIES REMAIN Despite the detail Ã¢â ‚ âœ the photos resolve things down to 62 miles (100 kilometers)- researchers still don't know the details of how sunspots work. "It is clear that everything we see is the result of fields and the solar gas, or plasma," Kiselman explained. "The heat of the Sun tries to push through, carried by convection currents which are hindered by the magnetic fields. But exactly what happens and why these kind of structures are formed, we don't know." Sunspots are cooler and darker than the rest of the Sun. They are launch pads for ...
74. Remarks on Solar Jet Stream Weather [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... 1997:2 (Feb 1998) Home | Issue Contents Thoth VOL I, No. 22. August 31, 1997 Remarks on Solar Jet Stream Weather I've downloaded the images and text [of the above article] to find that it offers startling confirmation of the "Electric Universe" model, which sees the Sun being powered externally by plasma currents from the galaxy. Few, if any of the features on the Sun have any right being there if it is purely an isolated nuclear source of energy. For example, if the Sun is an isolated body in space radiating away its internal energy, then it should have no "weather". If the solar wind is ...
75. Thoth Vol V, No 3: Feb 28, 2001 [Journals] [Thoth]
... 10,000 year orbit tells us that its origin was different than most first-time comets (which have 3.2 million year orbits), and therefore, we can expect it to behave differently. From this viewpoint, comets were created in discrete batches as the result of specific events in the history of the solar system. From the plasma viewpoint, the comet is probably a coherent solid body rather than a dirty snowball or a rubble pile, although it may be coated with debris and sediment, like the asteroid Eros. In fact, from the plasma viewpoint, the major difference between a comet and an asteroid is their electric potential. The eccentric orbit of comets is ...
76. The Cosmic String of Pearls [Journals] [Aeon]
... sky to Earth by means of a moon beam. "On that day the fire and the smoke (? ) will melt the metal in the mountains and hills and stand on the earth like a stream. Then all people will ascend in the molten metal and be purified."  Instability due to pinch effect in a plasma discharge column. Left and right: Progressive evolution of a plasma pinch effect. (Compare with ancient man's depictions on previous pages.) This most puzzling tradition makes perfect sense in terms of mythical symbolism: the polar axis is symbolised as a stream of molten metal and the people ascending in this axis are, once more, like ...
77. On the Circularization of the Orbit of Venus [Journals] [Kronos]
... . 25 and 26). Based upon the above considerations, the density 10-7 kg/m3 was selected for the model. For comparison, the density of the terrestrial atmosphere at sea level is approximately 1.2 kg/m3, while at 110 km altitude it is only about 10-7 kg/m3. The density of the interplanetary plasma is of the order of 10-20 kg/m3 near the orbit of the Earth. The parameters of the gas cloud model are summarized in Table II.

78. The Not So Stable Sun [Journals] [Kronos]
... . The Sun's radiative lifetime will extend until the solar charge density equals that of its galactic surroundings. Juergens has noted that solar surface phenomena are consistent with the photosphere being the anode of an electrical discharge in a system where the anode surface is too small to collect the current.(46) The granular structure of the photosphere results from plasma tufts forming above the anode surface to correct the deficiency through a more intense mode of anode activity. These nodules of secondary solar plasma are detached from the solar anode itself, which lies below the photosphere. The anode tufts consisting of very luminous plasma are generated, emitting ions and collecting electrons [see Figure I]. Figure 1 ...
79. The Celestial Dynamics of "Worlds in Collision" [Journals] [SIS Review]
... of the Earth's de-spin and re-spin  which could be explained if we accepted electrostatic forces in gravity. Melvin Cook's theory of gravity is most sophisticated, and far from naïve. It is summarised on pages 420-426 of his book , and the easiest way I know of to understand it is to note a result in plasma physics which is a little obscure, but of whose validity there is no doubt. Pozwolski  provides the most elegant, shortest and neatest statement I know of the finding that in a plasma, under certain conditions of density and temperature, you can have negative pressure or volumetric cohesion. The result given by Pozwolski, a ...
80. Forum [Journals] [Pensee]
... What I am getting at is that this engineering approach has not always tended to clarify basic principles, or even basic terminology. Some of the technical terms not only vary from one side of the Atlantic Ocean to the other, but they are not widely understood among scientists even on their native shores. Even such a widely used term as plasma, appropriated by pure science and assigned as the name of an entire branch of physics (and thence widely applied in astrophysics), has in the process acquired a subtly different meaning from that intended by its coiner (Langmuir). The result is that a neophyte must read and reread engineering documents- or at least this neophyte had to ...
