101. Were The First Americans Australians? [Science Frontiers Website]
... 500-year-old human skull found in Brazil possesses features of South Sea Islanders rather than Asians. Stone artifacts. Scrapers and other simple stone artifacts from Los Toldos Cave in Patagonia, dated as 12,000 years old, are suspiciously similar to late-Pleistocene tools in Australia. (Ref. 1) Cave paintings. At Los Toldos and especially another Patagonian site called Estancia La Maria, there is distinctive artwork virtually identical to some from Australia. Specifically, this artwork consists of "hand negatives" (silhouettes of the artists' hands) and spiral and circular drawings composed of little spots. (Ref. 1) Additionally, a remarkable and entirely distinct form of Australian art-- the famous Bradshaw paintings-- are strangely echoed in the artwork of the Paracus Culture of Peru. (Ref. 2) Two curiously adorned flowing figures from a Bradshaw gallery, Australia It is relevant in the above context that one of the Bradshaw paintings depicts a boat with upright prow and stern and which is manned by many paddlers. The Bradshaw people obviously were familiar with the sea ...

102. Shapley?s Scientific Record [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... argued that the many spirals and nebulae visible through telescopes are galaxies or universes outside the Milky Way, which with its billions of stars is but another nebula to a viewer from a distant galaxy. Shapley argued that the solar system is located in an off-center position in the Milky Way, but that the Milky Way is the only galaxy in the entire universe, the spirals and nebulae being some nebular formations on its periphery. A. Pannekoek described the position taken by these two astronomers in this way: Curtis held that they [spiral nebulae were ? island universes ?, separate stellar systems outside and comparable to the galactic system.... Shapley on the other hand, pointing to the accumulation of the spirals at the galactic poles, considered them not as distant galaxies but as belonging to our galactic system, itself regarded as larger, a ? continent universe ?. The fact that no stars were visible in these not very distant nebulae, though the spectrum was continuous, he ascribed to strongly scattering nebulous matter within them; and he held as a ...

103. synopsis [Thunderbolts Website]
... we are seeing things in space that were never imagined. We detect magnetic fields everywhere, even in the “empty” depths of intergalactic space. Magnetic fields cannot exist without causative electric currents. The naked electric force is 39 orders of magnitude (a thousand billion billion billion billion times) stronger than gravity. The visible universe is constituted almost entirely of electrically active plasma. In the twentieth century the pioneers of plasma science inspired a new school of investigation called plasma cosmology. Plasma cosmologists suggest that electricity is the primary force organizing spiral galaxies and the astonishing galactic clusters now seen in deep space. Plasma cosmology has achieved surprising success in predicting major discoveries of the space age. This new perspective does not require purely theoretical inventions like the Big Bang, dark matter, dark energy, neutron stars, or Black Holes. Stars The “Electric Universe” extends the findings of plasma cosmology to the formation and evolution of stars and their planetary satellites. Proponents of the Electric Universe suggest that there are no isolated islands in the universe. All objects in space, ...

... )" "... with the need for electrical neutrality paramount...;" "The necessity for electrical neutrality then forces the details of the decays to be...;" or even "Of course there's electricity in space, but it doesn't DO anything." The above spectrum was obtained by the Chandra orbiting x-ray camera in December of 1999. The subject is a tiny point-source of x-rays (a small, coherent cloud or the top of a coherent stream) embedded in the nucleus of an active spiral galaxy named NGC 4458 (upper image.) The elements in the x-ray spectrum are identified by their chemical symbols: O= oxygen, Mg= magnesium, etc. The roman numerals refer to the number of electrons that have been stripped from these elements. By consulting a periodic table of elements, you can calculate how many electrons are left. In this very active region of space, we see: Mg XII-- Magnesium with all 12 of its electrons missing Ne X-- Neon with all 10 electrons missing ...

106. Another Active Ejecting Galaxy [Thunderbolts Website]
... well, making the horns appear as a trident. Occasionally, three or four or more currents will produce multiple filaments flaring away from each other. The flaring filaments above the center of NGC 3079 (image above) illustrate this behavior. They are evidence of a galactic-scale thunderbolt discharging its energy in the core below. Because that thunderbolt is only part of an electrical circuit that encompasses the entire galaxy, we would expect to see signs of excitation in other parts of the circuit. And we do: The outer edges of the spiral arms are dotted with bright spots, traditionally called "star-forming regions." Here the return current from the axial discharge, pinched into more or less equally spaced pairs of filaments, bends into the equatorial plane. At the bend, electrical forces are strengthened and matter accumulates. Stars are indeed formed, but they are electrical stars, lit by the surge of current exploding from the nucleus. Why is NGC 3079 excited? The Electric Universe would suspect the driving energies were due to a surge in a larger, invisible circuit ...

107. Electric Waterspouts [Thunderbolts Website]
... 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 are most likely to occur when the water is warm, the air is cold and moist, and the winds are light. (They are predictable enough that the weather service issues waterspout warnings when conditions are right for their formation.) First a circular white spot surrounded by an irregular dark area forms on the water's surface. Next a pattern of light and dark bands spiral outwards. Then a dense, swirling ring of spray, called a cascade, appears around the dark spot and rises toward the clouds. When it connects to the clouds, the waterspout begins to move with the clouds. When the waterspout is mature, it can be several hundred feet high. It often creates a visible wake and a wave train as it moves (see photo above). Russian plasma physicist V. A. Rantsev-Kartinov studied waterspouts from a plasma point of view. He came to understand the waterspout as ...

108. Nine-tenths Of The Universe Is Unseen [Science Frontiers Website]
... Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects Nine-tenths of the universe is unseen In a rather lengthy article on the disturbing discoveries of modern astronomy, Ivan King is quoted as follows: "The most serious problem in extragalactic astronomy today is the notorious 'missing mass.' There are rich clusters of galaxies where it is quite clear that the total gravitating mass is about ten times what we can account for in the conventional masses of the individual galaxies... "The other missing mass problem shows up in the outer parts of spiral galaxies, where the rotational curves have clearly never heard of Kepler... The rotation curves say there is a large amount of mass out there, [but it emits no light by which we can study its nature. "The missing mass problem is extremely disquieting...We are talking about 90 percent of the mass of the universe, present but not speaking. Can we really claim to know anything about the nature of the universe if we don't know the properties, or even the nature, of 90 percent of ...

109. A Loose Cannon in Space [Thunderbolts Website]
... and between them, lobes of hot material are pulled out in the same direction. The Electric Universe interprets these observations as the consequences of an electrical surge in the circuit feeding the Fornax cluster of galaxies (of which NGC1097 is a member). Usually an active galactic nucleus will eject its jets and quasars along the galaxy's spin axis. But occasionally, as in this instance, the plasma gun mechanism in the galaxy's core will "wobble", becoming a "loose cannon" that ejects in the equatorial plane, disrupting the spiral arms.

110. The Universe According to Arp [Thunderbolts Website]
... galaxy, M49, lies at the center of the cluster. It is flanked by the active and radio-bright galaxy, M87, to the north and the quasar, 3C273, to the south. All three objects are connected by a lane of radio and x-ray emission. M87 is famous for the blue jet with quasar-like knots in it that extends toward the active galaxy M84. In the other direction from M87, opposite M84, is another line of x-ray and radio sources. The entire line is surrounded by an oval of small spiral galaxies. Beyond M84 is the quasar PG1211, which has a line of quasars extending through it. These last quasars would be the great-grandchildren of M49. Arp contends that just about everything we can see in the direction of the Virgo Cluster is a family member of that cluster. But he also notes that on the opposite side of the sky is a formation that is a mirror image of the Virgo Cluster: the Fornax Cluster. What's true of one must be true of the other, implying that the visible universe consists ...
