The Hot Poles of
The unexpected hot
spot around Enceladus' south pole is another indication of
electric currents coursing through Saturn's moon and
connected with the electric circuits that compose Saturn's
The NASA press
release reports that this image “startled” scientists. The
hot spot around Enceladus’ south pole is “very difficult to
explain if sunlight is the only energy source heating the
surface.” The only other likely heat source available to
conventional theorists is internal heat, but they are
“unsure how the internal heat reaches the surface.”
reveal a series of somewhat parallel fractures that are the
centers of the heat. NASA scientists speculate that internal
heat escapes through these fractures and evaporates the ice
along them, thereby generating Enceladus’ thin atmosphere of
water vapor, which seems to be concentrated over the south
pole. Water escaping from the atmosphere may be the source
of the icy material in Saturn’s E ring, the largest ring, in
which Enceladus orbits.
are only 1 to 2 kilometers wide but extend over 100
kilometers in length. Proponents of the Electric Universe
recognize this form as the typical electrically excavated
rille. They also notice the correspondence of
Enceladus’ hot pole with hot spots around the poles of
other planets and moons. The electrical
circuits in Saturn’s plasma sheath will include a “neutral
sheet” and ring currents (plasma toroids) in the plane of
the rings, and Enceladus orbits within those currents.
In this respect,
Enceladus is similar to Io, orbiting within an equatorial
toroid around Jupiter and connected to Jupiter’s auroral
circuit by a polar flux tube. As

of Volcanic Plumes on the Jovian Satellite Io, A. L.

discharges in the electric circuits flowing through and
In the electric
view, the warm rilles and hot pole are electrically heated.
The water vapor from the rilles is being electrically
“machined” from them. A similar process should be occurring
at the north pole, where the electric current flowing
through Enceladus returns to Saturn’s sheath circuit.
have noticed the “bending” of Saturn’s magnetic field around
Enceladus “due to electric currents generated by the
interaction of atmospheric particles and the magnetosphere
of Saturn.” But their blind spot with regard to plasma
behavior leads them to insist that the electric currents
“don’t do anything.”
The past century
of plasma research demonstrates just the opposite.
Experimental scientists from Birkeland to Alfven confirm the
insight of Heraclitus in the Fifth Century BCE: It is the
thunderbolt that steers the universe.
