101. On Gravitating Electrified Bodies [Books] [de Grazia books]
... equally have been as a decline in the Sun's mass (its gravitational ability). Orbits changing under varying electrical transaction behave differently than the conventional view of very slowly evolving gravitational orbital elements. The objects are drawn together or forced apart by changing radial forces. Literally, an object like Venus, born from Jupiter in a charge-deficient condition, spirals inward, driven radially by electrical force and increasing its tangential velocity in sustaining its angular momentum. It is no "lucky billiard shot" that Venus encountered all planets inferior to its initial position near Jupiter. Following an initial diminishing spiral path generally close to the same plane as the other planetary orbits, Venus could not avoid close ( ...
102. Did Jupiter Give Birth to Uranus & Neptune? [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... and gradually migrated to their present, nearly circular orbits. Stable orbits Another group of scientists, also writing in Nature, from the University of Toronto, have simulated how planets such as Jupiter may have formed in the first place. They found that gas and dust circling the early Sun that starts to accumulate to form a proto-Jupiter creates a spiral density pattern in the surrounding disk material. The proto-planet accretes mass rapidly through the spiral arms but when the planetary mass reaches four-to-five-times Jupiter's mass, the disk rapidly fragments into smaller proto-planets. Over hundreds of thousands, or millions of years the proto-Uranus and proto-Neptune would be flung outwards by the now smaller proto-Jupiter's gravity. Not too long ago ...
103. Thoth Vol II, No. 7: April 15, 1998 [Journals] [Thoth]
... rain, it lets the heat out. On Jupiter, the fact that other substances can do this too leads to more layers of cloud and more complicated weather. Such as the red spot. The new infra-red images from Galileo show that it is not a deep vortex of cloud as previously thought. Instead its top is a tangle of spiral arms. The gaps in between them reveal a large, fairly clear area below. And the spot is slightly raised near the middle. Dr Taylor thinks this means that the red spot is actually a relatively narrow, spinning column of material rising from the depths and being sprayed out over the ammonia clouds. At its edges, the ...
104. Celestial Mechanics of the Half-century Venus Interval [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... On the Circularization of the Orbit of Venus', Kronos VII:2 (1982), pp. 3-28 Venusian orbits VA and VC and line of apses LA projected on the ecliptic plane, with Earth's orbit E (assumed unperturbed), Sun S, and line of nodes LN. Smaller distances are exaggerated. The c.50 spiralling orbits from VA to VC are not shown. Spiralling perturbation of VA and VC is indicated by the (very exaggerated) offsets at A and C. SB = R = a(1+ e), with a and e mean values. AC = D, AB = fD, BC = gD. The angle between LA ...
105. Testing Juergens' 'electric sun' theory [Journals] [SIS Review]
... plasmoids which are capable of driving the energetic weather systems discovered on the gas giants and recently, surprising astronomers yet again, on the Sun itself. A characteristic of plasma phenomena is the scalability from the laboratory up to galactic dimensions. With this in mind, it is interesting to note that the current streams of the slow solar wind, spiralling out from the sun, are reminiscent of the spiral structure of our galaxy. That structure and the galactic magnetic field are not explained by accepted gravitational and mechanical theory.

106. Star Words [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... it is inappropriate for the experts to ignore the connection of sacred dances to celestial phenomena, since all such ritual performances repeated critical junctures in the lives of GODS. The turning, twisting motion (strophe) of the prototypical star is legendary and is the basis of the global connection of this star, Venus, to the simple curl, spiral, and whorl. And speaking of the turning motion of Venus, if cataSTRophe is in fact connected to the same root as STaR, then so must the word apoSTRophe, since it expresses the same Greek root. The expected connection is definitely there. Aphrodite (Venus) was CALLED Apostrophia. A loose counterpart would be the Latin ...
107. Sky Dragons and Celestial Serpents by Alastair McBeath (Book Review). C&C Review 2002:1 [Journals] [SIS Review]
... a lot of astronomers nowadays, including Patrick Moore, is very receptive to their thesis. He points out that modern observations of comets Hyakutake, Shoemaker-Levy, Halley and Hale-Bopp have expanded our knowledge of them and notes that dragons with a fiery breath, the jets of gas, can be seen to be similar. He notes a link between spirals on ancient art and the jets emitted from the nuclei, due to rotation of the nuclei. He says Clube and Napier suggested the spiral serpent shape found in a variety of forms around the world from earliest times may represent a close up view of the gas and dust jets emitted by a comet passing close to the Earth. I ...
108. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... a theory very similar in content to that of Velikovsky". Indeed it is. They, too, believe that Earth has been subjected to extra-terrestrial catastrophes-specifically large meteor bombardments - on a fairly regular basis. Theirs differs only in mechanism: catastrophes come when the Solar System in its orbit round our Galaxy encounters cosmic debris in one of the Spiral Arms. "Happily, we are now in clear space having left the region of a spiral arm some 10 million years ago." Napier and Clube, along with many other leading theorists of the moment, believe that ". .. a giant meteorite struck the Earth some 65 million years ago [i .e . at ...
... thousands, of feet. The remaining 80 per cent or so, that is to say, the satellite's core, was riven rather suddenly into huge fragments. As this splitting apart happened under the influence of the terrestrial apex, and when the satellite's orbit was already very eccentric, the fragments speeded round the Earth in a very eccentric elliptical spiral. Each fragment was definitely drawn closer when it passed over the Earth's gravitational hump. Each of the fragments into which the satellite had been riven was, of course, subjected to the resistance of the interplanetary medium in its own individual way. Bigger fragments were less subject to it than smaller, heavier fragments of metallo-mineral material from the ...
