As Above So Below

January 8, 2020 What happens in space affects Earth. NASA launched the Advanced Composition Explorer (ACE) spacecraft on August 25, 1997. From its location at LaGrange point L1, ACE analyzes the solar wind, providing real-time “space weather” reports about geomagnetic storms. ACE should be able to continue its mission until…

Not a Crater?

January 7, 2020 The terrain found in Australia is not easy to explain using conventional theories. Many previous Picture of the Day articles discuss the continent of Australia. Wilpena Pound, Uluru, the Olgas, and the coastal topography seem to disprove gradual processes of sedimentation and erosion over millions of years.…

Slow Down!

January 6, 2020 Is dark energy speeding everything up? Dark energy is considered a necessary adjunct to the Big Bang theory, because distant galaxies appear to be accelerating as they recede from Earth-based observatories. Recessional velocity is something that astronomers believe contributes to the redshift of those objects. Redshift is…

Essential Knots

January 3, 2020 In 1966 the U.S. Navy satellite, TRIAD, recorded “disturbances” in Earth’s magnetosphere as it passed over the poles and through the Van Allen Radiation Belts. Vertical electric charges that flow from the Sun into the Earth are known as “field-aligned currents”. In honor of Kristian Birkeland they were…

Blue Oblivion

January 2, 2020 The Chandra X-ray Observatory recently experienced a fault that, were it not resolved, would have meant the end of its life. As many Pictures of the Day demonstrate, Chandra, along with Hubble, Spitzer, and other space telescopes, provides fuel for Electric Universe fires. Modern astronomers measure the…

A Whale of a Time

Dec 30, 2019 Revealing the underlying structure of galaxies. Electric filaments expand through space. Sometimes they explode, releasing plasma accelerated almost to the speed of light. Galactic jets erupt from the opposite poles of some galaxies, terminating in energetic clouds that emit X-rays, gamma rays, radio waves, and extreme ultraviolet…

Dust Ejection

Dec 27, 2019 Disks around stars indicate electromagnetic induction. A recent press release from the National Astronomical Observatory of Japan reports “…a young star surrounded by an astonishing mass of gas.” As usual, astronomers involved with the investigation report that the “…enigmatically large amount of gas requests a reconsideration of…
