That That Is, Is

That That Is, Is

Aug 17, 2018 Where did we come from? Generally, there are two competing views about how the Universe is evolving. In the first instance, the Universe was born in a Big Bang: an intrusion from another reality that provided the impetus for all matter and energy. The components of this ...

Solar Eruption

Solar Eruption

Aug 16, 2018 Sunspots are declining, over all, but they continue to occur. The total sunspot number peaked in 2014, so the Sun is entering what should be a quiet phase, as discussed in a recent Picture of the Day. However, in early September 2017 the Sun erupted with several ...

Aug 15, 2018 Electricity is stronger than gravity. Electricity is really just organized lightning. --- George Carlin Cosmic rays are ions from deep space traveling at high velocities. Most cosmic rays are single protons, followed by 5% helium nuclei, with the rest comprising all other elements in the periodic table ...

Aug 14, 2018 Neutron stars do not exist. "The neutron star is simply yet another fantasy....A proton-free nucleus or 'charge free' atom made up of only neutrons has never been synthesized in any laboratory nor can it ever be...Lone neutrons decay into proton - electron pairs in less than 14 ...

Radio Filaments

Radio Filaments

Aug 13, 2018 Some galactic jets emit radio broadcasts. It is not the consensus opinion, but Electric Universe proponents think that galactic evolution occurs when large-scale plasma discharges form coherent, electrodynamic filaments. In that view, the Universe is an electrical system that is ever charging and discharging. Rather than gravity, electricity ...

Power Planet

Power Planet

Aug 10, 2018 Jupiter dissipates so much electromagnetic energy that it could be thought of as a star. Jupiter’s magnetosphere is so powerful that it reaches beyond Saturn’s orbit, over 600 million kilometers away. Zones of extreme radiation, similar to the Van Allen radiation belts, surround the planet, except that the radiation ...

Aug 9, 2018 Stars are electrical and they evolve according to the laws of plasma physics. "Every circuit which contains an inductance is intrinsically explosive. The inductive energy...can be tapped at any point of the circuit. If we try to interrupt the current...the inductance tends to supply its energy to ...

Aug 8, 2018 Ganymede's electric charge means it interacts with Jupiter's magnetosphere. Planetary scientists sent seven different science experiments to Jupiter over the last forty years, beginning with Pioneer 10 in 1973. Of all Jupiter’s moons, Ganymede is possibly the most exotic, with a mix of topography, including fractures, craters ...

Electric Granulation

Electric Granulation

Aug 7, 2018 Theories about the Sun suffer from cloistered research. "When running a lab I found that one of my most important activities was to go from room to room and discuss in depth the problems which a certain scientist or a group of scientists was trying to understand ...

Focused Flares

Focused Flares

Aug 6, 2018 Electricity flowing into and out of the Sun can sometimes release plasma discharges called solar flares. Consensus astrophysicists think that solar flares are caused by magnetic loops “reconnecting” with each other. The so-called “magnetic energy” short circuit is thought to accelerate gases into space. Magnetic reconnection is ...

Dark Horizon

Dark Horizon

Aug 3, 2018 If the Universe is based on the prevailing theories of Einstein, and gravity is bending time and space around all objects, then dark matter and dark energy are merely illusions. "Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!" --- U.S. President, Ronald Reagan Modern astronomers think that all galaxies ...

Galactic Gas

Galactic Gas

Aug 2, 2018 Oxygen is abundant in the Universe. Previous Picture of the Day articles point out that planetary nebulae radiate in light frequencies associated with ionized oxygen. Since oxygen is the most common element in galactic structures, after hydrogen and helium, it is not surprising that a remote galaxy ...

Aug 1, 2018 Galaxies exhibit electric circuits. “A broad and ample road, whose dust is gold, And pavement stars—as starts to thee appear Soon in the galaxy, that milky way Which nightly as a circling zone thou seest Powder'd with stars.” ― John Milton Astronomers cannot see stars (or galaxies) ...

Jul 31, 2018 The brightest objects in the Universe are electrical. A previous Picture of the Day discussed the twin lobes of gamma rays extending beyond the Milky Way’s central bulge. The funnel-like formations are each about 65,000 light-years in diameter, and are considered by Electric Universe advocates to be ...

Jul 30, 2018 Goddess-like beauty scarred forever. There are indications that Venus underwent a catastrophic event (or events) sometime in the recent past. Giant cracks extend for hundreds of kilometers, for example. Those fractures are accompanied by “coronae”, with deep channels branching out like carved lightning bolts. Vast caldera with ...

Gravity is not the Answer

Gravity is not the Answer

Jul 27, 2018 Gravity is given far too much influence. Almost all galaxies are said to harbor one or more black holes. Since matter is supposed to spin around a black hole at extreme velocities, consensus opinions state that it heats up from friction, generating X-rays and ultraviolet light. It ...

Binaries

Binaries

Jul 26, 2018 Why are stars most often seen in pairs? More than half of all stars observed in the Milky Way have one or more companions, suggesting that something, at least in our galaxy, influences the formation of multiple star systems. Stars are so remote from each other that ...

Charge Surplus

Charge Surplus

Jul 25, 2018 Stars are electrically charged. From an early age, children are taught that stars are burning balls of hydrogen gas. Also, that gravitational attraction from a star like the Sun is what holds the planets in their orbits. Fusion fire in their cores is said to take a ...

Jul 24, 2018 Electromagnetism drives the cosmos. NASA launched the Herschel Space Observatory into orbit around LaGrange point L2 on May 14, 2009. Since Herschel used liquid helium-cooled infrared detectors built to last about three years, its mission came to an end on April 29, 2013. Herschel's primary mission included ...

Plasma Weather

Plasma Weather

Jul 23, 2018 Solar plasma interacts with Earth's electromagnetic fields. Recent Picture of the Day articles address many issues that make understanding the Sun exceptionally difficult. The consensus viewpoint about solar activity and the Electric Universe viewpoint are, in many cases, diametrically opposed to each other. In particular, the hypothesis ...

Positron Lightning

Positron Lightning

Jul 20, 2018 Electrons and positrons are formed in lightning bolts. Lightning is a plasma that creates powerful electromagnetic pulses across a wide range of frequencies. Thunderheads may be several thousand cubic kilometers in extent, yet all of that stored electrical energy travels down a discharge channel no wider than ...

Swimming in a Cosmic Sea

Jul 19, 2018 Birkeland currents are a better model than gravity. Among astronomers, it is commonly thought that the vast majority of observable galaxies hide "supermassive black holes" (SMBH) within their cores. SMBHs contain up to a billion times more mass than putative stellar black holes, and it is that ...

Not Gas

Not Gas

Jul 18, 2018 Nebulae are electrical phenomena. As written in previous Pictures of the Day, plasma behavior is unfamiliar. It is sometimes difficult to see the differences between plasma and a gas. Plasma's similarities to gas are overshadowed by its failure to correspond with gas kinetics. Since the light frequencies ...

Plasma Instabilities

Plasma Instabilities

Jul 17, 2018 Plasma does not obey the laws of kinetic energy. "The plasma exhibited striations and double-layers, the electron distribution was non-Maxwellian, there were all sorts of oscillations and instabilities. In short, it was a field which was not at all suited for mathematically elegant theories." --- Hannes Alfvén ...

Plasma Connection

Plasma Connection

Jul 13, 2018 Enceladus reveals an electric circuit with Saturn. Recently, the Picture of the Day discussed the discovery of heavy molecules in the geyser eruptions from the south pole of Enceladus. Similar to those found elsewhere, such as the dwarf planet, Ceres, the molecules are probably the result of ...
