21. Black Gold -- Again [Science Frontiers Website]
... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 79: Jan-Feb 1992 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects Black gold-- again The Siljan Ring and T. Gold are back in the news again. A few years ago, at Gold's instigation, private investors and the Swedish govenment put up money to drill for oil and gas at the Siljan Ring, some 200 kilometers northwest of Stockholm. This granitic region is a meteor-created, shattered scar on the earth's crust. It is in just such a spot that Gold expects to find abiogenic petroleum and methane seeping upward from deep inside the earth, where they have resided since the earth was formed. Con-ventional petroleum geologists have roundly ridiculed the Siljan Ring project; after all, everyone knows that oil and gas derive from buried organic matter. Three years ago, at a depth of 6.7 kilometers, the "misguided" Swedish drillers pumped 12 tons of oily sludge from the granite rock. "Just drilling fluids and diesel-oil pumped down from the surface," laughed the experts ...

22. COMETS, ASTEROIDS, OR NEITHER? [Science Frontiers Website]
... (2) It was easily torn apart by Jupiter's strong gravitational field as it narrowly missed Jupiter in 1992. This is just what one would expect from a loosely compacted dirty iceball. But doubts about Shoemaker-Levi-9's true nature have arisen because of two observations: (1) No water vapor has been detected in the plumes thrown up by the impacts of the fragments; and (2) The comet's Fragment M, which was supposed to have vaporized in 1993, as comets are wont to do, apparently did not and left a scar on Jupiter like the other fragments. So, Shoemaker-Levi-9 had no discernible ice (unlike comets; it was fragile and easily fragmented (unlike rocky asteroids); and Fragment M did not have a coma (unlike comets but like asteroids)! Was Shoemaker-Levi-9 really a comet? (Roylance, Frank D.; "Is That Really a 'Comet' Hitting Jupiter?" Baltimore Sun, July 20, 1994.

23. The Mark Of The Beast [Kronos $]
... the mark of the beast in medieval witchcraft. In pacts concluded with the forces of evil in the Middle Ages, newcomers were marked by the Devil, who left the imprint of his claws on them, according to popular belief.(8) An illustration of this procedure, shown in the Reverend Père M. Mar. Guaccius' Compendium maleficarum (a book on witchcraft published in Milan in 1626), depicts the Devil scratching his claw marks into the upper right forehead of a new servant.(9) The claw-like scar on Gorbachev's head is similarly on the upper right forehead. Revelation 13:14 says that the dragon (i.e., the Devil, according to Revelation 20:2) gives authority to the beast (the Kremlin's block). The prophecy of Revelation 13:4 to the effect that all the Earth will ask who can do battle with the beast might remind us of the spread of defeatist attitudes and of the widespread call in the Western World for unilateral nuclear disarmament. However, Revelation 13: 16-18 presents a far ...

... difficulty by the impact hypothesis). Rayed craters, such as Tycho, stretch the credibility of the impact hypothesis to the breaking point. Small craters are statistically overabundant within sinuous rilles, as compared to the obviously older terrain immediately outside the rilles. At the same time, the conventional alternative to the impact theory --cratering due to volcanism --fares even worse in the face of most of the evidence. Electrical Cratering If one approaches the cratering phenomenon from the standpoint of Worlds in Collision, there is no need to imagine that every circular scar on the moon, the earth, or the planets Mars, Venus, and now Mercury, too, is an impact site. Velikovsky's research has turned up innumerable ancient references to cosmic electric discharges. And a reasoned consideration of such a phenomenon, regardless of how discomfiting the idea might be, suggests answers to many of the most puzzling aspects of planetary cratering: the time sequence by which smaller craters always follow and degrade larger craters is conceivably due to diminishing potential differences during a continuous, though probably quite brief, series ...

25. Earth In Chaos by Peter M. James [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... henges, stone circles, non-circular rings, ellipses and egg shapes are all discussed in the book; situations where the available site dictates the format and speculation as to what some of the lines, fans and arrays were laid out to demonstrate are all discussed but the most interesting features by far are the long lines of menhirs at Carnac and the Dorset Cursus. James puts forward an excellent argument in which he proposes that the Dorset Cursus was a broad shallow excavation made by removing the topsoil from the underlying chalk to produce a white scar 'just the sort of thing to catch the Sun God's attention as he came over the [midsummer horizon'. However although it is 10km long, it is not straight, but snakes along, heading on different bearings. He compares it to the line at Le Petit Menec (France), where construction was suddenly abandoned- the Dorset Cursus was also abandoned, with antler picks left in the excavation- were they both recording the same sequence of events? If these alignemnts plot the changing horizon azimuth angle of sunrise at ...

26. Iceland And The Iridium Layer [Science Frontiers Website]
... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 15: Spring 1981 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects Iceland And The Iridium Layer The high concentration of iridium between the Cretaceous and Tertiary eras (about 65 million years ago) is widely interpreted as indicating a worldwide catastrophe caused by the impact of a comet or meteor. The increase of iridium concentration over normal levels is much higher in northern latitudes, suggesting that the impact point is in this region. But no impact scar of the proper size and age exists. However, if one looks for scabs rather than scars, one finds that Iceland is formed entirely of volcanic rocks younger than the Cretaceous. To Fred Whipple of the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory, these facts dovetail nicely. Iceland was form ed by magma welling up from a 100-km hole in the sea floor blasted out by a 10-km meteor. (Anonymous; "The Blow That Gave Birth to Iceland?" New Scientist, 89:740, 1981.) From Science Frontiers #15, Spring 1981. ...

27. synopsis [Thunderbolts Website]
... scarring is occurring even now on Jupiter ’ s closest moon, Io, and on Saturn ’ s moon, Enceladus. Electrical activity continues on Mars, driving "dust devils" the size of Mount Everest – created by the electrical differential between the surface of Mars and surrounding space. All of the dominant surface features of Mars show the patterns of electric discharge, suggesting that in the past a vast quantity of material was excavated electrically from Mars. It was an interplanetary arc that created the Martian Valles Marineris, the largest known scar on a solid planet. Much of the rocky material exploding from Mars became comets, asteroids, and meteorites. Some of the material arc machined from the Martian surface is still reaching the Earth today. thunderbolts.info home updates news and views picture of the day resources team your role contact us ...

29. Olympus Mons [Thunderbolts Website]
... ionized path. So the discharge that creates a fulgamite is often followed by successive lesser strokes that may excavate overlapping pits on the top of the fulgamite. The six overlapping circular craters on the summit of Olympus Mons display this pattern. The smaller craters center on the walls of the larger and are cut to different depths, as if with a cookie cutter. Such a pattern is not volcanic, where the caldera floors are supposed to be due to collapse or draining of magma from beneath. A laboratory example of an electric arc scar on a clay anode surface is shown on the right. At moderate power, the electric arc rotates (top right) and raises an extensive circular blister, seen clearly in the middle right image. As the power is increased, the arc briefly stops moving and burns a small circular crater, seen as a glowing spot in the top image and at 4 o¹clock in the bottom image. The tendency for the arc to "stick" to one spot on the anode creates localized very high temperatures, sufficient to vaporize some ...

30. Electric Meteorites? [Thunderbolts Website]
... which is the case. Do meteors burn up from air friction or from electrical discharges sparked by short-circuiting a double layer? Are the streaks of light hot air or lightning? Are the noises shock waves or electrically transduced sounds? Are meteorites etched by friction or by electrical discharge machining? Are they slowed to a soft landing by air resistance or by electrical forces? Why do we find meteorites where there are no craters and craters where there are no meteorites? Is "impact" an obsolete idea to be replaced with "arc scar?" With the awareness of plasma, all phenomena become new and all explanations must be reconsidered. Meteors and meteorites again become interesting. And Opportunity will need to turn back to the lump of iron lying on Meridiani Planum with new questions to ask and new tests to perform.
