That's what I wondered and the thought was familiar. See: Electrostatic Spin also known as Electrostatic RotationSiggy_G wrote:Excellent papers! Just further confirmation of the electrical processes that's going on. We keep seeing that solar wind/plasma and the photoelectric effect are being driving forces. One could also wonder if the frontside and backside charge difference have a global effect on the movement of planets... In a way the two would cancel eachother out, but maybe the processes have inertia that causes rotational movements. There was an article in another thread that pointed to lunar storms (dust ejections etc.) along the night/day border of the moon due to the charge differences (can't find the link right now).
Aren't these papers just yet another confirmation that craters and alleys are caused by electrical discharges - especially on planets/moons/comets with little atmosphere (or before they got a denser one)?
Then I remember where I heard the concept:
Harold Aspden commenting on the 2003 "discovery: "BIOGRAPHICAL NOTES THE STRUGGLE FOR ACCEPTANCE"This physicist [Harold Aspden] had already addressed the existence of the 'Electrostatic rotation' (when a direct current voltage is applied to three metal spheres suspended without friction, the spheres begin to rotate) in 1960 and again in 1977, described as 'aether spin' induced by electrostatic charge , before its discovery was announced by the University of California in April 2003  (note that this phenomenon could not be explained by available theory at the time of its discovery).- User:Abd/Cold fusion controversy
Funny how you can mention one word and your theory is greeted with silence until someone else "discovers" it (just being fair). Anyways, with regard to the original topic and the possibility of global electrostatic rotation add an irregular EDM'd surface i.e. "craters".
