Enceladus, comets and electric moons

“William Whewell, in his 1840 synthesis The Philosophy of the Inductive Sciences, was the first to speak of consilience, literally a ‘jumping together' of knowledge by the linking together of facts and fact-based theory across disciplines to create a common groundwork of explanation.”
“When we have unified enough certain knowledge, we will understand who we are and why we are here.”
– Edward O. Wilson, Consilience.

Recent reports about Saturn’s mysterious moon, Enceladus, have supported the advance claims of the Electric Universe view of the shared origin of planets and comets while requiring post hoc, implausible adjustments to the conventional theory of origin of planets and moons from a nebular disk — a problematic 200-year-old theory lacking any successful predictions. Gravitational collapse of a rotating proto-solar nebula has problems; accretion of large bodies from smaller bodies has not been shown to work; and up to 99 percent of the matter in the imagined original solar nebula, having formed the planets, has then to be removed! ...

This TPOD of Io is a smoking gun IMO. http://www.thunderbolts.info/tpod/2004/ ... ries-4.htm
I wouldn't want to defend the position that this is a Volcano. Any volunteers?

One is obliged to point out this recent article on Enceladus' plumes:

(Electrically Charged Particles Found in Enceladus’ Plumes)
http://www.universetoday.com/2009/04/21 ... us-plumes/

The spectrometer on Cassini, the Cassini Plasma Spectrometer (CAPS) discovered a surprise: the ice particles are electrically charged.

[...]

The CAPS instrument is designed to detect charged gas (plasma), but its measurements in the plume revealed tiny ice grains whose signatures could only be present if they were electrically charged.

[...]

The particles have both positive and negative electrical charges, and the mix of the charges varied as the Cassini spacecraft crossed the plume.

[...]

Jones and Arridge suggest that the grains may be charged through so-called triboelectric processes, through bumping together in the vent below Enceladus’s surface before they emerge into the plume. [Framed hypothesis?]

[...]

“What are particularly fascinating are the bursts of dust that CAPS detects when Cassini passes through the individual jets in the plume” says Jones. “Each jet is split according to charge though”, adds Arridge, “Negative grains are on one side, and positive ones on the other”. [Double layers? Birkeland currents?]
