Sci News Blog: Ball Lightning

Unread postby Lloyd » Wed Aug 31, 2016 12:34 am

Interesting 19 page article [I've only read the abstract] on ball lightning, apparently from about 2012. I just posted other science news Sunday in the previous post.

Ball Lightning: Bubbles of Electronic Plasma Oscillations
Auguste Meessen
Institute of Physics, Catholic University of Louvain, Louvain-la-Neuve, B-1348 Belgium
We present a theory that explains all known properties of ball lightning (BL) in terms of collective oscillations of free electrons*. The simplest case corresponds to radial oscillations in a spherical plasma membrane. These oscillations are sustained by parametric amplification, resulting from regular “inhalation” of charged particles that are present at lower densities in the ambient air. BL vanishes thus by silent extinction when the available density of charged particles is too low, while it disappears with a loud and sometimes very violent explosion when this density is too high. Electronic oscillations are also possible as stationary waves in a plasma ball or thick plasma membrane. This yields concentric luminous bubbles. Ball lightning is a remarkable example of dissipative and self-organizing open systems, depending on non-linear processes.

(I'm including a few excerpts in some of these article links.)

Fabricating science: discussing fraud can rebuild community confidence and deepen understanding of how science works

The value of the open science movement

Small Universe: M33 Internal Motions
The author of these pages is of the opinion that van Maanen's internal motions in spiral nebulae were actually [wrongly?] rejected by mainstream cosmology (which is focused on the idea of the big bang with it's expanding universe, populated by other island universes, i.e., galaxies). If van Maanen's internal motions are real, their magnitudes would imply that the whole observable universe is compri[s]ed solely of the Milky Way and its very nearby environment. Spiral nebulae wouldn't be island universes, and they would be no further from us than the Milky Way's galactic halo. For more on this idea, see Cosmology's Missing Mass Problems - Part 3.
... Comments on Knut Lundmark's "Studies of Anagalactic Nebulae"
Lundmark(2) reported internal motions in M33. These were on the same order of magnitude that van Maanen found, but he concluded that the motions were of a random nature. See M33 Internal Motions According to Lundmark. See the blink comparator (its not aligned right yet) which shows van Maanen's internal motions compared to Lundmark's.

Small Universe: Cosmology's Missing Mass Problems - Part 4

A fresh look at discordant redshift galaxies in compact groups 03/1996
We reexamine the statistics of discordant redshift galaxies in compact groups. We find that 43 out of 100 groups in the Hickson catalog contain at least one discordant redshift galaxy. We show that, despite the prevailing impression, all previous attempts have failed to explain this large number of discordant redshift galaxies. The order of magnitude excess survives all of our attempts to refine the sample.

1811-12 New Madrid Earthquakes, A NEO Connection (Meteorite)?
- The New Madrid seismic zone earthquakes of 1811-1812 may not have been caused by strictly run-of-the-mill seismic activity. This is a study into the possibility that some Near Earth Object (NEO), such as the Great Comet of 1811, was an outside-the-box crustal stressor. If a NEO involvement is found, then some fear of the unknown about the timing of the next big one may come to be dispelled.
... Where's the New Madrid Event Crater?
- The first jolt of the 1811 New Madrid quakes is thought to have been centered near Marked Tree, AR. The region of Marked Tree would, therefore, be a logical place to search for a meteorite impact structure.
- Just north of Marked Tree, AR there is a swampy region called the Saint Francis Sunk[en] Lands. (The 1811-12 earthquakes are said to be responsible for the sinking of the lands.) This particular swamp is fed by the Saint Francis river.
- In 1889, in the middle of the swamp, ... there was a body of water called St. Francis Lake. At that time it had a circular southern border (which doesn't look like an oxbow feature) and a centrally located island. The island is now known as Hatchie Coon Island. [The lake is SE of Jonesboro]

Full and new moons linked to timing of largest, deadliest quakes

Chemistry says Moon is proto-Earth’s mantle, relocated
"In one model, a low-energy impact leaves the proto-Earth and Moon shrouded in a silicate atmosphere; in the other, a much more violent impact vaporizes the impactor and most of the proto-Earth, expanding to form an enormous superfluid disk out of which the Moon eventually crystallizes." The isotopic study used K239 and K241 and determined that the second theory was correct. "Supercritical fluids can flow through solids like a gas and dissolve materials like a liquid." "Wang ... predict[s] the Moon condensed in a pressure of more than 10 bar, or roughly 10 times the sea level atmospheric pressure on Earth."

Binary 'Heartbeat stars' unlocked in new study
In a heartbeat star system, the distance between the two stars varies drastically [from] a few stellar radii to ... 10 times that distance during ... one orbit. At ... closest encounter, the stars' mutual gravitational pull causes them to become slightly ellipsoidal in shape, which is one of the reasons their light is so variable.

(See recent tech news at - which will be updated in a few days.)

(In last week's post above, note the link to evidence of global cooling. The current exposure of major corruption in politics {e.g.} may be the opportunity for alternative science to show itself less corrupted and more scientific than conventional corrupt science, including global warming, old earth theory, etc. Right?)
