Plasma Braids

  Nov 20, 2017 Filaments are common in the Milky Way The Herschel Space Observatory was launched on May 14, 2009 into an orbit around LaGrange point L2 (behind Earth in relation to the Sun). Herschel’s supercooled infrared detectors were built to last only three years, so its cooling systems has long since …

Galactic Attraction

  Oct 31, 2017 Is the Universe expanding? Modern astronomers believe that galaxies are receding from each other because they received “inflationary energy” imparted by the Big Bang. They estimate the recession to be about 71 kilometers per second for every 3.3 million light-years of spatial distance. This “dilation of …

Cosmic Electromagnetism

  Sep 27, 2017 The Universe is not only in motion. Galactic evolution occurs because large-scale plasma discharges form coherent filaments that exhibit electrodynamic behavior. Since the Universe is an electrical system that is constantly charging and discharging, instead of a gravitational system that is constantly contracting and expanding, gravity is …

Dark Decrepitude

  Sep 5, 2017 If the Universe is expanding at an accelerating rate, then the future is dark. In 1998, two research groups discovered what is now called in consensus circles, “dark energy”. Saul Perlmutter of the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and Brian Schmidt from the Australian National University projects …
