Contributors to the material presented on this website include, but are not limited to, the following principals. Though these individuals share wide-ranging interests in space plasma and electric phenomena in space, they also respect differences of opinion. It should not be assumed that opinions on any theoretical questions are unanimous.
Amy Acheson (1946 – 2005)
Editor of the electronic newsletter THOTH for several years and author of numerous articles. An amateur astronomer, she was best known for her accurate and persuasive summaries of the work of Halton Arp and Wallace Thornhill. When Amy died in July 2005, the Thunderbolts team lost one of its most distinguished members.
With university training in astronomy, his wit and insight will give you both a chuckle and something to think about. His editorials were a regular feature in the electronic newsletter THOTH. He is now a regular contributor to the Thunderbolts Picture of the Day (TPOD)
Long-time student of “catastrophism,” and lecturer on the Electric Universe, he is publisher/producer of video and newsletter work on the science of catastrophics and the Electric Universe.
A premier comparative mythologist, catastrophist researcher, and author of numerous articles on the roots of world mythology. He is currently authoring an in-depth study of catastrophism and mythology which will encompass several large volumes, and has to date published three books, God Star, Flare Star and Primordial Star.
A comparative mythologist with a deep interest in the cosmic symbols of early cultures. He has studied and researched catastrophism for many years, written countless articles and has published three books. Martian Metamorphoses, The Many Faces of Venus and the recently released Starf*cker.
A technology enthusiast with a keen interest in exploring the electrical nature of the universe, Michael is a regular contributor to the Thunderblogs and to our forum. He is currently working with other members of our team to expand our repository of accessable information.
Donald E. Scott
Retired professor of electrical engineering at the University of Massachusetts/Amherst, known for his cogent presentations on the “electric sun.” In addition to his lectures, he has been emcee of several conferences on cosmic catastrophe. Author of An Introduction to Circuit Analysis – A Systems Approach and the groundbreaking book The Electric Sky.
Dave has a broad work history which includes time spent as an operator in an electricity generating facility in Australia. He is Managing Editor of the Thunderblogs, Administrator of our Forum and also provides technical assistance for the Thunderbolts websites. He is an Honorary Fellow of the Telesio-Galilei Academy of Science.
Stephen Smith has been studying the concepts embodied by the Electric Universe theory for over thirty years. He is the managing editor for the Thunderbolts Picture of the Day, writes most of the articles, and provides editorial assistance for those who contribute their own papers.
Comparative mythologist whose work offers a radical new vantage point on the origin of ancient cultural themes and symbols. His research has been the primary catalyst behind the “Saturn Model,” and is the subject of the feature documentary, “Remembering the End of the World.” Author of The Saturn Myth and co-author (with Wallace Thornhill) of Thunderbolts of the Gods and The Electric Universe.
Australian physicist. His work on “The Electric Universe” provides the broadest synthesis of electrical principles to date. It offers a new vantage point on solar system history, planetary cratering and scarring, the dynamics of the sun, and the nature of galaxies. Wal is a senior editor for the Picture of the Day feature on www.thunderbolts.info and co-author of The Electric Universe and Thunderbolts of the Gods books.
Interests in catastrophism, astronomy, plasma physics and scientific anomalies, and participant in many Internet forums. Member of the British “Society for Interdisciplinary Studies,” IEEE Nuclear and Plasma Science Society, degrees in chemistry and computer science, university certificates in astronomy and cosmology.
A Software Developer with a Mathematics and Physics background, Scott enjoys finding critical flaws in theories and determining more likely alternatives and explanations. He has compiled the information on our predictions page and is exploring other ways to popularize Electric Universe theory.
