Our Mysterious and Variable Sun

(Discovering the Electric Sun - Part 2) Quantification It is the general agreement between theory and observation that provides the foundation for quantification. Specialized inquiry can then test the rigor and precision of the qualitative argument with equations and numbers. In a successful test, the quantitative results will correlate well ...

EU2012 Conference - The Human Story

Voyager 1 Updates Solar Electron Flux

Seems Voyager 1 has been able to supply us with more accurate data to enable new calculations of the Solar Electron Flux[1]. In the late 1970’s Ralph Juergens investigated how (or whether) the Sun could be obtaining its energy via an externally supplied flow of electrical power[2]. Now, in late ...

Discovering the Electric Sun – Part 1

In the twentieth century, pioneers of plasma cosmology began to identify the crucial role of electric currents in interstellar and intergalactic space. The “electric universe” hypothesis extends plasma cosmology into domains that were, at best, only partially touched by its pioneers. This paper will present a brief summary of the ...

The Plasma Universe of Hannes Alfvén

Editor's note: the following article has just been published in the October-December issue of Edge Science. In the 20th century no scientist added more to our knowledge of electromagnetism in space than Hannes Alfvén (1908–1995). His insights changed the picture of the universe, revealing the profound effects of charged particle ...

Comet Elenin—the Debate that Never Happened

by David Talbott The comet Elenin, a subject of intense Internet discussion for several months, seems to have disappointed everyone. I speak here not just of the doomsayers, who were awaiting a frightful specter in recent weeks. You might think these folks would be happy that the celebrated intruder faded ...

Science Needs Natural Philosophers

29 August, 2011 “Those who regard philosophy as a ‘soft’ and unscientific discipline, in contrast to the ‘hard’ and scientific fields of mathematics and physics, have accepted a Big Lie. The ideas of mathematicians and physicists can be no more objective or certain than the philosophic ideas on which they ...
