The Electric Comet

Over the span of the last century, a hidden revolution has been taking place in the science of Cosmology, the study of the origins and nature of the universe. It remains hidden because there is still, as yet, no outward sign that any significant change has taken place.

Within the halls of renowned academic institutions, the faculties of astrophysics and astronomy continue to teach the same courses to new ranks of students, who have little idea that the very foundation of what they are being taught is being systematically demolished by the latest findings of space probes.

The hallowed ideas of men like Newton, Doppler, Einstein and Hubble are being replaced by those who belong to the vanguard of a new band of pioneers, with such unfamiliar names as Geissler, Birkeland, Alfvén and Juergens.

And in the 21st century, their torch has been passed to scientists like Wallace Thornhill, Donald Scott and Anthony Peratt. However it is safe to say that it is likely that many decades will pass before their names will be enshrined among the great visionaries of science.

The classical view of the universe was that it was a vast expanse of empty space populated by island galaxies that were isolated from one another by almost unimaginable distances. And each of these separate galaxies contained billions of fiery stars, many of which hosted variously sized planets and moons.

The force that held all these rotating stars in their places was gravity, which operated with clockwork precision and affected all that came within its reach. It was Albert Einstein who claimed that space was actually a continuum called “space/time”, and that “space” and “time” were inextricably linked together.

Furthermore, he said that the force of gravity was able to “bend” space/time, and that it was this unusual feature that accounted for the force we call gravity. So Einstein’s major contribution to the science of Cosmology was to show that what Newton regarded as the force of gravity, was actually a consequence of the geometry of space/time.

By confining his theory of the universe to the primal force of gravity, Einstein, like Newton before him, paid no heed to the role of electromagnetism, either in the formation of the universe, or in the properties displayed by stars and planets, and even space itself.

This is where this silent revolution in Cosmology has been taking place. For as we have seen in preceding instalments, it is becoming ever clearer to those at the cutting edge of science, that the dynamic force of electromagnetism lies not only at the heart of the creation and functioning of the universe, but is also the fundamental source of all created life.

What they are coming to realise is that we are all electric beings, living on an electric planet, warmed by an electric sun, and part of an electric universe. And plants and trees and fishes and animals and birds, and all of created life, share our electric nature.

And scientists are also beginning to learn that the universe did not unfold some fourteen billion years ago as a result of a “Big Bang”. Instead, it will soon become clear that the real big bang that will be heard around the world, will be the sound of the destruction of the entire classical way of thinking.

As we have seen, the whole idea of an expanding universe rested on a slender thread. It was Edwin Hubble who interpreted the red-shift of light from distant galaxies as a Doppler effect. In other words, he considered that light waves in space operated just like sound waves on earth.

And when his former assistant at the Mount Wilson Observatory in California, Halton Arp, demonstrated that this was not so, the entire foundation of the expanding universe collapsed, as did its supposed cause of origin, the “Big Bang”.

And as was explained in the previous instalment, as a result of the discoveries of the latest space probes, the classical idea of the sun as a thermonuclear furnace, converting hydrogen into helium through the process of fusion, has become a theoretical shell shot through with more holes than the sunspots themselves.

As members of the team of the Thunderbolts project based in Portland, Oregon, have explained, the traditional fusion model of the sun has been found to be wanting in so many ways, that the time has come to look upon the evidence of our telescopes and space probes with new eyes.

They have proposed that the fusion model of the sun be replaced by an electric model, that better serves to explain the existing anomalies and problems. In fact, they have gone further, by suggesting that the traditional teaching of Cosmology be replaced by a revolutionary concept of the cosmos, which they call the “Electric Universe”.

And the reason why they believe that scientists trained in the classical tradition need to consider these new ideas, is because the information that is being relayed back to them from space is revealing things that had never previously been anticipated, let alone explained by traditional theory.

As they point out, images being returned by high-powered telescopes as well as recent space probes, are challenging long-standing assumptions about galaxies and their constituent stars, and of the origin of the universe itself.

Vast magnetic fields are now being discovered everywhere, even in the so-called “empty” regions of intergalactic space. And as every pupil is taught in grade school physics, magnetic fields do not exist without the presence of electric currents. In fact that is how they are formed. They are twin aspects of the same indivisible force.

And when comparing the role of electricity with that of gravity in the formation of the universe, it is worth remembering that the electric force is 39 orders of magnitude greater than that of gravity.

This does not mean that the force of electricity is just 39 times stronger than that of gravity. It means that it is one thousand billion, billion, billion, billion times stronger than gravity! And the universe now appears to be filled with electrically-charged particles.

Another classical concept to fall victim to the electric model, is the idea of space itself. Classical scientists had long believed that space was empty – a vacuum. Despite all the evidence that has been collected in recent years to disprove this theory, traditional astronomers and astrophysicists continue to wrestle with the conundrum that it poses.

For if space really is empty, then what is it that makes up the bulk of the universe? For according to accepted cosmological theory, all the visible energy and matter that has so far been discovered in the universe makes up only four percent of the total theoretical mass.

In order to solve this mystery, astrophysicists have hypothesized that there must also exist in space two additional components. One has been christened “dark energy”, and the other “dark matter”. As of this time no one has been able to explain exactly what either of these components are, or how they came about.

But as supporters of the “Electrical Universe” model have pointed out, there is no mystery to this at all. Space is not empty. On the contrary, it is full. For according to their electrical model, the 96% of missing matter in the universe exists in the form of plasma.

Scientists have long been familiar with the three states of matter, namely solids, liquids and gases. But to these must now be added a fourth state of matter which is plasma, not only because its properties are different from the other three, but also because there is more plasma in the universe than all the other states combined.

Plasma has been defined by Anthony Peratt of Los Alamos Laboratories as “a collection of charged particles that responds collectively to electromagnetic forces“. On earth, plasma can be found in such things as flames from a fire, in neon lights, and in the lightning that heralds a summer storm.

Plasma is often thought of as an “ionized gas”. However this is misleading, as plasma seldom behaves like a gas at all. It does not dissipate in outer space as a gas would do. Instead, it organizes itself into complex forms that do not generally respond to gravity. So plasma is not simply a form of gas. It is actual matter in a plasma state.

What makes plasma so unusual, and differentiates itself from other forms of matter, is that it is able to manifest in any one of three different ways, depending on the strength of  electric current. When the flow of charged particles within the plasma is low, plasma is in its “dark mode”. It does not glow, and cannot be seen in visible light.

This is the state in which most of the plasma exists in outer space, which is why astronomers never detected it through their telescopes. They never even knew it was there until they were able to measure its electrical activity with sensitive instruments. The magnetospheres of planets are also examples of plasma operating in the dark mode.

The better known aspect of plasma is its “normal glow mode”. When the strength of the electrical current is significant, the entire plasma glows. The brightness of the glow varies with the intensity of the current. Common examples on earth are auroras and neon signs, while in the solar system the best example is the corona of the sun.

Finally, when the strength of the electrical current in the plasma is very high, it operates in what is called its “arc mode”, where it radiates brilliantly over a wide spectrum. Examples on earth are things like arc welding machines as well as lightning, while in the solar system the best example is the photosphere (surface) of the sun.

Those readers interested in gaining a more comprehensive understanding of the Plasma Universe, and its role in undermining the theoretical basis of the “Big Bang”, will find the following video helpful.

Because plasma fills the regions that were once thought of as “empty space”, it was inevitable that this would in due course bring new light to bear on the nature and behaviour of comets in the solar system.

In fact Wallace Thornhill considers that “of all the bodies in the heavens, perhaps none will prove more definitive in confirming the electric field of the sun than the comet“.

As explained in the post “Signs in the Sky“, most astronomers and astrophysicists continue to cling to the speculative ideas of Fred Whipple, the American astronomer who originally came up with the hypothesis that comets were little more than “dirty snowballs”, consisting primarily of ice and dirt.

In fact the generally accepted view of establishment science is that all comets, whether classified as short or long-period comets, are composed of rock, dust, ice and frozen gases such as carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, methane and ammonia.

But what separates comets from other intruders like asteroids, is that as they draw closer to the sun, comets begin to glow and to develop various tails. Streams of ionized (luminous) gas and dust form their own distinctive tails, which generally point in differing directions, and can stretch for millions of miles.

According to conventional theory, the “Coma”, or glowing envelope that forms around the nucleus of the comet, develops as part of the core begins to “sublimate”. This is a process whereby the solid matter of the core is converted directly into gas, without passing through the liquid phase.

However, according to the electric model of the universe, comets are not simply lumps of ice and dirt travelling through empty space. They are in fact charged objects moving through the electric field of the sun.

The major differences between the “dirty snowball” theory of comets and the electrical model can be summarised as follows:

Dirty Snowball Model:

  • Comets are composed of debris (dust and ice) left over from the formation of the solar system billions of years ago.
  • Radiant heat from the sun sublimates the ice. The vapour expands around the nucleus to form the coma and is swept back by the solar wind to form the tail.
  • Over repeated passages around the sun, solar heat vapourizes surface ice and leaves a “rind” of dust.
  • Pockets of gas occur wherever heat penetrates the surface of a comet, causing energetic jets to form.

Electric Comet Model:

  • Comets are composed of debris caused by violent interactions between planets and moons in an earlier period of solar system history. Comets are simply asteroids with eccentric orbits.
  • As comets approach the sun, a charge imbalance develops between the nucleus of the comet and the higher voltage and charge density near the sun.
  • These growing electrical stresses cause discharges, as well the formation of a glowing plasma sheath, which appear as the coma of the comet and its tail.
  • The tails of comets show well-defined filaments that extend tens of millions of miles without dissipating.
  • It is the electric force that holds the spherical cometary coma in place as the comet races around the sun.
  • The observed jets of comets are electric arc discharges, and these discharges erode the surface of the comet and turn it black.
  • These jets explode from cometary nuclei at supersonic speeds, and retain their coherent structure for hundreds of thousands of miles.

A brief overview of the differences between these two models can also be seen in the following video.

And Wallace Thornhill had this to say on the subject of comets, meteors and asteroids at the Electric Universe conference in 2012:

Video:  Wallace Thornhill 

As Thornhill has explained, there is a growing list of cometary phenomena that have been observed in our solar system in recent years that continues to defy conventional explanation.

And while establishment scientists have been quick to announce that they have been startled by these new discoveries, they have shown little inclination in reconsidering their original hypotheses. And the reason for this is clear.

When everything that they have been taught rests upon the bedrock of gravity alone, without a nod towards the role played by electromagnetism, then the admission that electromagnetism might play a part in explaining any one of these new discoveries, must inevitably breach the entire dam of existing theory.

And all of their carefully contrived theories would then be swept aside in the ensuing flood. This would not only demolish their traditional view of comets, but also their fusion model of the sun, and the entire theory of an expanding universe and the “Big Bang”.

But it would not end there. The subsequent realization of the fundamental role played by electromagnetism in the creation and sustenance of life, would revolutionize the social sciences as well. The history of our planet would have to be rewritten, bringing it into line with ancient records of past cataclysms.

Geology, Biology and Archeology would also be transformed. This tidal wave of change would ultimately invalidate even Darwin’s theory of evolution, predicated as it is upon the principle of “uniformitarianism”, or gradual morphological change over vast spans of geological time, in which catastrophism plays no part.

At the risk of mixing metaphors, when even a tiny spark could lead to a conflagration that would destroy the better part of everything that has been taught over the last four hundred years, then those sentinels who guard the gates of conventional science will do whatever it takes to block the path of progress. And comets could well provide the tinder for that spark.

The gulf that exists between the traditional view of science and that of the electric universe has been brilliantly explained by Chuck Missler in the video below. Although Missler is now an author and Christian evangelist, his former education and experience in astronomy, science and technology make him an ideal interpreter.
