Small Star with a Large Planet
Stellar jets from a
brown dwarf provide new support for the electric star model.
Thunderbolts Picture of the Day article discussed the
emission of x-ray jets from what NASA scientists call a "neutron
star." Such an observation was thought to be impossible,
because only a black hole is theorized to have enough
gravitational force for matter to be compressed and
accelerated to such an extent. In order for that level of
high-frequency electromagnetic radiation (EMR) to be
produced, a gravitational acceleration close to the speed of
light was thought to be necessary. But as we noted, the star
Circinus X-1 has defied that requirement.
the paradox has reached the extreme. Scientists at the
European Organization for Astronomical Research in the
Southern Hemisphere (ESO) have announced the discovery of
"outflow" from an object only 24 times the mass of Jupiter.
"This leads us
to the tantalizing prospect that young giant planets could
also be associated with outflows," according to
Emma Whelan and her colleagues.
theory stars called, "brown dwarf" are unable to sustain
thermonuclear fusion because they are too small. Because of
that size limitation, the output from such low-powered stars
is constrained by the relatively low gravitational field and
should not be producing energetic EMR. Yet 2MASS1207-3932 is
disobeying the rule. Although, in
standard theory of stellar evolution it is not
understood how any star produces jets of x-ray or gamma
light, it is thought necessary for the star to be undergoing
hydrogen fusion. Without the radiant emissions from such
processes, no output should be created that
billion kilometers into space and that moves multiple
kilometers per second.
In the electric
star hypothesis, however, radiant output is expected from
the objects we observe. Whether they are in arc mode, glow
mode or dark mode all objects in the universe are
electrically connected to one another along circuits of
current flow that permeate the cosmos. Orthodox astronomers
report galactic clusters emitting jets of matter along
invisible axes and galaxies, themselves
jetting material hundreds of light-years outward from
their poles. Super-compressed objects not precisely
identified but mathematically quantified as "black holes"
have jets; "neutron stars" have jets; and now, even brown
dwarf stars have jets.
demonstrates that there is no need to continually invent
unsubstantiated theories to explain astrophysical phenomena.
Its companion object suggests that the two are the outcome
of stellar fissioning that often occurs when one object is
experiencing too heavy an electrical input for it to
maintain integrity as a single body. In that case, when the
object splits electric current density is more uniformly
distributed over a larger surface, thus establishing
equilibrium with the galactic environment.
We have written
in these pages many times about the reasonable viewpoint
that electricity is causing the "mysterious" events reported
by astronomers and space scientists. Electric currents heat
and accelerate ionized gas to high speeds, exciting the
plasma and generating intense magnetic fields. The EM field
strength can produce "pinches" along those current
filaments, forming plasma instabilities that emit
ultra-violet, x-rays and other high-frequency radiation.
