Behind the Veil

  Aug 25, 2017 Picture of the Day articles argue for electrical interpretations. Every science journal describes the formation of nebulae like NGC 6960, the Veil Nebula, as due to “blowing winds” created by shock waves from exploding stars. Nebulae are often described as “star factories”, because consensus astronomers think …

  Jul 24, 2017 Electric Universe theory does not depend on something undetectable. “Space is filled with a network of currents which transfer energy and momentum over large or very large distances. The currents often pinch to filamentary or surface currents. The latter are likely to give space, as also …

Power Play

  Jul 21, 2017 Birkeland current filaments carry electric charge through space. When matter in the plasma state moves through clouds of dust and gas, they become ionized, creating electric fields and movement of electric charge. Electricity forms magnetic fields that tend to align and constrict the charge flow. Those …

Circular Logic

  Jul 20, 2017 Impact features are probably something else. Mare Orientale is located on the Moon’s rim, as seen from Earth, making it difficult to see with Earth-based telescopes. The Mare is almost a complete concentric ring structure with a surrounding basin of regolith. It is bounded inwardly by …

Scientific Correctness

  Jul 18, 2017 Think of the scientific method as the methodical application of human cognitive abilities. Everyone uses cognition to some extent; scientists use it methodically. It works through the interplay of three activities: observing or experiencing or paying close attention to some particularly interesting thing or event; thinking …

Saturn’s Polar Vortex

Jul 17, 2017 Electricity influences Saturn’s environment. The picture at the top of the page could be mistaken for recent images of Jupiter’s Great Red Spot. However, the swirling vortex is actually located in the center of Saturn’s vast, hexagonal north polar formation. Hexagons and other polygons can sometimes occur …

Jul 14, 2107 What causes waves in Io’s lava lakes? Jupiter’s electromagnetic field, recently measured by the Juno space probe, is twice as strong as consensus models predicted: 7.766 Gauss, compared to 0.66 Gauss at Earth’s South Pole. As previously written, Jupiter’s toroidal magnetosphere is approximately 650 million kilometers wide, extending even …

An Electrifying Assembly

Jul 12, 2017 Jupiter’s moons exhibit electrical activity. On October 18, 1989 NASA launched the Galileo Jupiter orbiter (the pre-cursor to the current Juno mission) onboard the Space Shuttle Atlantis, as part of the STS-34 mission. After gravitational assistance from flybys of Venus and Earth, Galileo arrived at Jupiter on …
