Would EU theory (have) change(d) space exploration?

Has science taken a wrong turn? If so, what corrections are needed? Chronicles of scientific misbehavior. The role of heretic-pioneers and forbidden questions in the sciences. Is peer review working? The perverse "consensus of leading scientists." Good public relations versus good science.

Would EU theory (have) change(d) space exploration?

Suppose Electric Universe theory won out in the 1970s,
would it have changed space exploration?

Are there any missions that really should be done, but are held back by dogmatic beliefs?

Would different equipment have been sent?
More money be spent?
Different missions have been done?
Would some planets and moons have been given a lot less and others a lot more attention?
Would any of the Mars rovers have landed in different locations?

And perhaps a most unintentionally embarrassing question I keep thinking of..
Would there have been an attempt to probe Uranus to see if it's really gassy or has a solid surface?
Since 1 % 1, 1 * 1 and 1 - 1 do not add up, we must conclude that 1 + 1 is 3.

Just a few years to Alpha Cetauri and back at 1g acceleration/deceleration, if you ignore the nonsense of time dilation and c as an arbitrary speed limit.

If you can control the effect we call gravity electrically (which has been done experimentally), you can generate a gravity perturbation will accelerate all atoms in your spacecraft at the same rate. In essence, everything will be in free-fall and you will be free of the inertial effects of the acceleration. In EU there is no speed of light limit to worry about, and therefore interstellar travel would be at our fingertips. The duration between point A and B would only be limited by the energy required to generate the craft's gravity field. The greater the gravitic intensity, the greater the acceleration.

Podkletnov claims to hav made a gravity beam. Depalma mentioned that spin affects gravity. But i havnt heard of electrical gravity effects.

How do you know it didn't, but They just don't tell anyone. Based on the missions so far, I think they are fully aware of the electric power in space, and are very careful to avoid it, because people and things would get killed.

All outer-earth spacecraft are very carefully and specifically designed, you will find lots of EU related engineering to make them survive and function. And every once in while, you will see the word 'plasma' used quite correctly.

I don't think exploration would be much different then it is, but life on our planet would be completely different. imho
interstellar filaments conducted electricity having currents as high as 10 thousand billion amperes

If there is a prediction that could be made, nothing stops you from making it right now.
