Geologists speculate that erosion by wind and water must have worked its magic on the upraised dome. Electric theorists see something else the scar left by electric discharge. In the October 28, 2002 Astronomy Picture of the Day the "explanation" goes like this: "What on Earth is that? The Richat Structure in the Sahara Desert of Mauritania is easily visible from space because it is nearly 50 kilometers across. Once thought to be an impact crater, the Richat Structure's flat middle and lack of shock-altered rock indicates otherwise. The possibility that the Richat Structure was formed by a volcanic eruption also seems improbable because of the lack of a dome of igneous or ...

From an electric viewpoint of the cosmos, it is the scar of a cosmic thunderbolt. Valles Marineris is four times deeper than the Grand Canyon, and stretches for almost 3,000 miles across the face of Mars. Its presence has continued to baffle scientists. When the Mariner probes returned the first pictures of this continental-scale trench, many proposed catastrophic flooding as its cause. But scrutiny of later images revealed no outwash or debris field left by erosion, and no sign of ponding. Nor did the short “tributaries”, ending in cleanly cut alcoves, fit any reasonable profile of a drainage system. Later ...

33. Comets, Gravity, and Electricity [Thunderbolts Website]
... Electricity The study of comets in recent years has revealed many anomalies yet to be understood by comet observers. Most importantly, the new discoveries accent the inability of gravitational theory to account for the full range of comet behavior. "Comets are perhaps at once the most spectacular and the least well understood members of the solar system." M. Neugebauer, Jet Propulsion Laboratory The more facts we gather about comets the less sense they make under popular scientific theories about comets. Highly energetic and focused jets explode from comets nuclei and scar them with features similar to those on asteroids and satellites. The jets filamentary structures stretch across millions of miles. The apparent temperatures of comas are so high that x-rays and extreme ultraviolet light shine from them. Water and other volatiles are in short supply or are completely absent on the surfaces of many comet nuclei. Observed electrical transactions with the solar wind remain obscure to cometologists. And a perplexing number of comets mysteriously explode as they dart around the sun. Though the popular theories have hardened into dogma and the scientific media ...

Arizona, ESA, NASA 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 Jun 28, 2005 An Electrical Blister on Titan Nothing much is supposed to have happened on Saturn and its moons for billions of years. But the Cassini probe is discovering evidence of a recent event, and a thunderbolt scar indicates what that event might have been. The conventional theory for the origin of the planets and their moons assumes that little has happened since they condensed from a cloud billions of years ago. The inundation of data from space probes that indicates relatively recent activity has been a surprise. When the Cassini probe discovered that Saturn s largest moon, Titan, was rapidly losing its atmospheric methane, conventional theorists had to come up with some mechanism that would have replenished the loss over billions of years. One of the first proposals was that ...

... resulting in a grid-like or web-like pattern. A strong vertical discharge may raise a blister or “fulgamite” on the surface, and the secondary discharges will scavenge electrons from the surrounding region. They may leave a pattern of radial and concentric channels or pits. This pattern is especially pronounced in a dense atmosphere, and we see it in the“ arachnoid” scars on Venus. In the thin atmosphere of Mars, we would expect fewer and less continuous channels and this is what we see in this “dogleg” discharge scar on the side of the giant fulgamite, Pavonis Mons.

36. 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.

... Palmer Q1. The geological process of chalk formation and mountain building takes millions of years. Were these affected by Velikovsky's last catastrophe of around 3,500 years ago? Also, how could these processes have carried on for millions of years under the influence of Saturn? Wal Thornhill said Earth has always been considered effectively as a closed system but now we may contemplate the possibility of a lot of material being deposited from space. One source for some of that material, described by the ancients, may be the colossal Valles Marineris scar on Mars, which has more than 2 million cubic kilometres of material removed. Some of it seems to have crashed back, which explains why Mars is rock strewn wherever spacecraft have landed, but some went into the asteroid belt and some was dumped on Earth. Mars was known as 'scarface' by North American Indians after it was struck by one of Jupiter's thunderbolts, so the Earth was close enough to receive Martian debris. Consequently geology has to look at a couple of mechanisms that have never before been considered. One ...

... lightning carves a channel on Earth, it creates a broad outer channel with a narrow more sinuous inner channel. Celestial lightning does the same thing on a much grander scale. After celestial lightning uplifted the plateau and carved the basic skeleton of the Grand Canyon, the Colorado River spilled into the inner channel. This reversed the previously northern drainage of the Southwestern States, allowing them to drain, for the first time, across Nevada and California to the Gulf of Mexico. The Colorado River quickly altered the inner channel from its lightning scar profile to a water-carved canyon in equilibrium. And every time that profile was blocked by a lava dam, the river demonstrated how quickly it can return the Canyon to equilibrium. Earth's rivers make it easy to confuse a canyon eroded by water with a canyon carved by electricity. But what about similar canyons on Mars? Did Mars once have liquid water flowing on its surface to carve its canyons? Astronomers answer that question with a strong "maybe." Four spacecraft, including landers, are currently en route to Mars with ...
