131. Bodies and Circuits [Thunderbolts Website]
... . DLs can accelerate charged particles to cosmic ray energies. And DLs can explode. Energy from the rest of the circuit flows into the break, and the explosion can release much more energy than is present locally. This effect is seen in flares on the sun and is likely responsible for the outbursts of novas, the so-called “exploding” stars. The electromagnetic forces in currents squeeze the conducting channels into thin thread-like filaments. These filaments attract each other in pairs, but when they get close, instead of merging, they spiral around each other. Pairs of pairs, and more, may entwine into plasma “cables” that can transmit electrical power over enormous distances. We see these cables as the “jets” that connect Herbig-Haro stars and active galactic nuclei with DLs that may lie many light-years away. But the “cables” can be invisible, too. These make up the galactic circuits that power the stars, analogs of the power lines, invisible at night, that carry electricity from generating stations to city lights. The “flux tube ...
132. The Ever-Elusive "Dark Energy" [Thunderbolts Website]
... the newly-discovered "Electric Universe". The Monograph includes an hour-long DVD introducing various aspects of the Electric Universe explained by members of the Thunderbolts Group. More Information Book Synopsis Read Chapter One Order Link Mar 02, 2006 The Ever-Elusive "Dark Energy" Observed motions in the heavens have always posed unsettling challenges to the suppositions of cosmologists. But critics say that things have gotten entirely out of hand with today ’ s speculations about invisible energy and “accelerating expansion” of the universe. When astronomers began to analyze discrepancies between motions of spiral galaxies and the requirements of gravitational theory, they found it necessary to postulate large quantities of invisible matter, placed wherever it was needed to “explain” what they were seeing. At times this remedy reached humorous proportions. When astronomers discovered a vast cloud of hydrogen (VIRGOHI21), estimated to lie some 50 million light-years from Earth, they were perplexed by its speed of rotation. To achieve a fit with their gravitational model, they were forced to invent not just a modest supplement, but a thousand times more “ ...

... another item headlined- "Twisters" Found In Stellar Clouds. Accompanying the article are two stunning photographs from the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) of the Lagoon Nebula. http://oposite.stsci.edu/pubinfo/PR/96/38.html Following is a partial quote from the report: "Analogous to Earth's tornadoes, the large difference in temperature between the hot surface and cold interior of the interstellar clouds, combined with the pressure of starlight, may produce strong horizontal shear to twist the clouds into their tornado-like appearance. While the spiral shapes suggest the clouds are twisting, future observations will be needed to confirm that." I would like you to note the exceedingly weak explanation for the formation of the "twisters". It is yet another manifestation of astronomers clinging to simple gas models rather than more complex plasma models. It should also be noted that earthly tornados are not well understood either because, I would suggest, electrical effects are ignored. Helical filaments are a natural configuration of current carrying plasmas and are seen in the powerful jets emanating from active ...
136. Remarks on Solar Jet Stream Weather [SIS Internet Digest $]
... the solid surface to act as a giant lightning conductor. It was actually calculated back in 1982 that a mountain only a few thousand feet high on Jupiter could create an effect like the GRS in Jupiter's atmosphere. There will be no understanding of the sunspot cycle until the true first cause of solar dynamics is recognized. I have theorised that it is caused by the passage of the Sun across giant Birkeland current filaments in the tenuous plasma of interstellar space, flowing along the galactic arm. That such currents exist is shown by the spiral magnetic fields wrapped around our arm of the Milky Way. It explains at once the variability of the cycle and the solar field reversal during each cycle. Wal Thornhill (firstname.lastname@example.org) ...
137. The Electric Universe CD by Wallace Thornhill [SIS Internet Digest $]
... corkscrew filaments within a football-shaped envelope, a shape recognizable today as a plasmoid. How could this be, unless the thunderbolts of Zeus actually were interplanetary discharges? Thornhill challenges us to drop the accepted view of the sun as an isolated fusion factory and think of it as a focal point of galactic electrical energy. He tells us that, although plasma is a good conductor, it is limited in its ability to carry current. So, if the rate of charge separation within the galaxy exceeds the capability of the plasma threading the spiral arms to carry it, the plasma will be under constant stress and current will flow continuously, powering the stars within it. In defense of this outrageous claim, Thornhill points out that stellar electrical discharges provide a simple explanation for solar phenomena that have baffled the atomic energy paradigm. Among these mysteries are: Where did all the neutrinos go if the sun is fusion-powered? Why is the corona so much hotter than the surface of the sun? Why do the outer layers of the sun rotate faster than the inner? Why ...
138. Stephan’s Quintet Rekindles Controversy [Thunderbolts Website]
... characteristics indicate that the galaxies of Stephan's Quintet are interacting as a group. Both galaxies on the left (NGC 7319 and NGC 7320) have tails that swing off to the northeast (upper left). (The tail on NGC 7320 requires a deep exposure to reveal it, as well illustrated by professor Don Scott in his discussion of NGC 7320 .) A more unified perspective will see the larger pattern. The entire group is embedded in a radio lobe (a bridge of excited matter emitting radio waves) from the active spiral NGC 7331 to the northeast (out of the frame). An extension of this energetic lobe also encloses a group of three galaxies on the opposite side of NGC 7331 that have redshifts similar to the high-redshift members of Stephan's Quintet. (Those familiar with Arp's observations will immediately recognize the pattern as a pair of small-galaxy clusters primordially ejected from NGC 7331.) The 'mashed together' pair, NGC 7318A and B, which even conventional astronomers admit are interacting, are themselves a 'discordant group'. B, on the left ...

140. Square Craters Detected on Eros [SIS Internet Digest $]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 2000:2 (Dec 2000) Home¦ Issue Contents Square Craters Detected on Eros CCNet, 25 May 2000 NASA's NEAR Shoemaker spacecraft has spotted square-shaped craters on asteroid Eros, a telltale sign of mysterious goings-on in the asteroid belt long ago. September 26, 2000-- In the pantheon of cosmic geometry, curves rule. Astronomy texts are filled with spiral galaxies, elliptical orbits, and ring nebulae. There are no chapters on triangles or rectangles-- after all, who ever heard of a square planet? Some of the simplest shapes, common in the handiwork of humans, are just plain rare in space. Rare, but not impossible... Last month, astronomers were studying pictures of asteroid 433 Eros when they noticed some unusual craters. Most impact craters are circular, but these were square! An overzealous fan of Star Trek might mistake the impact scars for places where cube-shaped Borg vessels touched down and lifted off again, but scientists say they are natural-- albeit unusual-- features.
