11. Wrong-way Stars In Spiral Galaxies [Science Frontiers Website]
... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 105: May-Jun 1996 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects Wrong-way stars in spiral galaxies Spiral galaxies are believed to form when gigantic clouds of gas collapse under the pull of gravity to create spinning discs. Further condensations give rise to the billions of stars that make up these immense rotating stellar wheels. Intuitively, one would expect all of the stars in a given galaxy to rotate around the hub in the same direction, like all of the water molecules in a whirlpool. But galaxy NGC4138, 50-million light years away, defies this common-sense expectation. M. Haynes and colleagues at Cornell have discovered that fully one-fifth of this galaxy's stars are rotating in a direction opposite from the rest. Otherwise, NGC4138 is a well-behaved spiral galaxy, almost a boring one, exhibiting no signs of internal turmoil or past collisions with another galaxy. However, all of the wrong-way stars appear to be youngish. This little clue may lead to some sort of explanation. (Muir, Hazel; ...

13. A Radio Message from Space [Thunderbolts Website]
... 108 page 8-1/2 x 11 full color monograph based on the life work of the two authors --a revolutionary synthesis of comparative mythology and 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 09, 2006 A Radio Message from Space Astronomers were perplexed when they found that a “radio galaxy” revealed a structure that such radio sources were never supposed to take: it is a spiral galaxy. The radio signals confirm that the galaxy s spiraling structure is embedded in vastly larger electric circuits. Pictured above are images of the Radio Galaxy 0313-192 (close-up on left), labeled “a giant radio source from the wrong kind of galaxy” a spiral. For many years it has been assumed that spiral galaxies do not emit the kinds of jets and associated radio signals recorded in the wide-angle view (right). Of course we can only view the galaxy edge-on. But by analyzing the vertical structure ...

14. The Dragon and the Pearl [Thunderbolts Website]
... dragon. This sphere is called huoh chuh, "fire pearl". Shown here is a Buddhist gong-hanger produced in 18th- or 19th-century Korea. The flames that erupt from the pearl in some representations parallel the flames exhaled by dragons in other traditions. But what does the red sphere signify? And where does the image of the dragon itself come from? Scholars agree that the pearl is celestial. But does it signify the moon, as some have suggested? Or is it the Sun, as others have claimed? The spiral inscribed upon the pearl remains an enigma. Some specialists emphasize the pearl s connection with thunder. An ancient Chinese charm declares that "a spiral denotes the rolling of thunder from which issues a flash of lightning." Could this apply to the spiral imagery attached to the dragon ball? The comparative symbolist, G Elliot Smith, believed so: The dragon's red ball with engraved spiral, "which was believed to have fallen from the sky, was homologized with the thunderbolt”.

15. Order From Disorder? [Science Frontiers Website]
... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 36: Nov-Dec 1984 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects Order from disorder? The apparent creation of order in a universe that is supposed to be running down is the subject of a thoughtful report by Wallace and Karen Tucker. They give additional examples of order arising from disorder in astronomy (spiral galaxies, superclusters), from chemistry (Belousav-Zhabotinsky reactions), and biology (embryonic development). Again and again, they ask why order persists on increasing when the Second Law of Thermodynamics seems to demand more disorder. Throughout the article, the Tuckers employ the card-shuffling analogy. If nature is shuffling the cards of the universe, why are so many royal flushes being dealt? They introduce the works of Ilya Prigogine and others which focus on chemical situations (the Belousov-Zhabotinsky reactions), where reaction by-products actually make the reaction more likely and in which large, stable spiral and ring-shaped structures appear spontaneously. At the macroscopic level, shock waves from supernovas can (at least in ...

16. A Bigger View of the Virgo Cluster [Thunderbolts Website]
... (lower right). In gamma-ray maps, a bridge of gamma-ray-emitting material connects the quasar with a variable quasar, 3C279, to the southeast and also back toward M49. M87 is also an active galaxy with a jet extending to the northwest (upper right). Beyond the jet are the radio- and x-ray-emitting galaxies M86 and, close by, M84. Further along the line is a quasar that has a pair of quasars aligned across it. Several elliptical galaxies lie along the M87-M86 line, and an oval of higher-redshift spiral galaxies surrounds the line. More quasars are embedded in the swirl of x-ray emission, and several of the unlabeled regions of increased intensity are compact clusters of small, visually faint galaxies. The bigger picture that emerges from connecting the dots is that of galaxies ejecting quasars and highly excited material in opposite directions from the galaxies nuclei. The ejected quasars in turn eject material as they evolve into next-generation galaxies. Quasars that are fragmented evolve into compact clusters of galaxies. In this bigger picture, redshifts are indicators of age, ...

20. ghosts of dark matter [Thunderbolts Website]
... structure and powering of stars. Plasma cosmologists and proponents of the “Electric Universe” who study the behavior of electrically powered plasma in the lab and in nature insist that the astronomers belief is incorrect. One of the great scientific “secrets” in modern times is that many of astronomy s most fundamental mysteries find their resolution in plasma discharge behavior. On the pages of Thunderbolts.info, this point has been enumerated in countless Pictures of the Day. For example, computer simulations have demonstrated that the motion of the spiral galaxy can be achieved through nothing other than interactions of electric currents in plasma. From the TPOD Plasma Galaxies: “Plasma experiments show that rotation is a natural function of interacting electric currents in plasma. Currents can pinch matter together to form rotating stars and galaxies. A good example is the ubiquitous spiral galaxy, a predictable configuration of a cosmic-scale discharge. Computer models of two current filaments interacting in a plasma have, in fact, reproduced fine details of spiral galaxies, where the gravitational schools must rely on invisible matter arbitrarily ...
