Daily discussion of various images from an Electric Universe perspective.

Quicksilver MESSENGER

  Sep 30, 2016 Mercury is no longer geologically active. Mercury has no atmosphere and a weak magnetic field, so it receives the Sun’s radiation with little deflection, similar to Earth’s Moon. Since the Moon is also an airless world, … Continue reading

Charge Fluctuation

  Sep 29, 2016 The Sun’s activity remains mysterious. Among heliophysicists it is commonly thought that the Sun accelerates charged particles into space in the same way that sound waves are amplified. Solar energy is said to travel outward from the … Continue reading

Down to the Sea

  Sep 28, 2016 Europa is not a harbor for life. In March of 1979 Voyager 1 found that Europa appeared to be completely encased in water ice, with few craters. Sinuous channels, called “rilles,” extend for thousands of kilometers … Continue reading

Radio Lobes

  Sep 27, 2016 Synchrotron radiation from a galactic core. A recent press release from the Hubble Space Telescope announces that the spiral galaxy LO95 0313-192 is ejecting a light-years long jet of material that emits intense radio waves, producing lobate … Continue reading

Power Lines

  Sep 23, 2016 Galaxies often exhibit alignment with one another across vast distances. According to Electric Universe theory, galactic evolution occurs as large-scale plasma discharges form spinning wheels of coherent filaments that display electrodynamic behavior and not merely that … Continue reading

Criss Cross Bulge

  Sep 22, 2016 A pair of field aligned currents can be seen discharging from the core of this active galaxy. Any substance containing charged particles is a plasma: electrons, positive ions, electrically charged dust, neon lights, lightning, planetary magnetospheres, … Continue reading

Bubbling Plasma

  Sep 21, 2016 Enceladus joins other celestial objects that produce “magnetic bubbles.” In a recent Picture of the Day, the so-called “bubbles” of magnetism supposedly found by the Voyager spacecraft at the boundary where the Sun’s heliosphere meets the ISM … Continue reading

A Spray of Plasma

  Sep 20, 2016 Consensus opinions state that a star in the latter stages of its life will undergo violent upheavals as its supply of hydrogen fuel diminishes and the “ash” of heavier elements accumulates in its core. Before stars … Continue reading

Prop Wash

  Sep 16, 2016 Stars in galaxies are affected by electromagnetic fields. According to a recent press release, the Milky Way “…hosts a propeller stirring up chaos in its wake.” By examining the positions of dwarf galaxies and globular clusters around … Continue reading

Curiouser and Curiouser

  Sep 14, 2016 Mars is not a dried-out museum of life. “When dealing with other worlds, we must take care to remember that unfamiliar processes are possible and even likely in alien environments.” — Colin Dundas of the U.S. … Continue reading
