The Electric Moon

At http://phys.org/print257617231.html .. we have 'Electric Moon jolts the solar wind' according to the headline - so electricity in space is now recognised as fact. It seems computer simulations and spacecraft observations have revealed the mystery of the Moon and how it interacts with the solar wind (see earlier post on this subject a week or two ago).

Carrington super-flare

At www.thunderbolts.info/forum/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=6100 there is a forum debate on the 1859 Carrington super-flare that caused a magnetic storm with aurora visible all over the world, even in the Caribbean. We've all heard about the telegraph system that became overloaded, was shut down but telegraphs could still be sent as there was so much electricity in the atmosphere, but there were also storms in California of an unusual intensity and temperatures that rose to 133 degrees (fahrenheit).

Earth's Magnetic Field

At http://tallbloke.wordpress.com/2012/05/14/solar-wind-stripping-atmospher... there is a post on a chance alignment of planets during a passing gust of the solar wind that has allowed scientists to compare the protective effects of Earth's magnetic field with that of Mars, which as a negligible atmosphere. It was found that pressure from the solar wind led to loss of oxygen on Mars at a rate ten times higher than on Earth - which explains why the atmosphgere of Mars is depleted (as a result of continous bombardments from the solar wind),

The Winged Disk and the Solar Wind slamming into the magnetosphere of the Earth

Gary Gilligan has put together a little video of this phenomenon, the solar wind slamming into the magnetosphere of the Earth - go to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3fGQeOac5lo and look at the comparison he makes between this feature of nature and depictions of the winged disk on Egyptian monuments.

Cold Fusion

Cold Fusion was a feature of the talk by Anthony Haynes at the SIS Spring Meeting in Luton on May 5th. Thunderbolts are advertising the 'NPA 2012 John Chappell Lecture' which is to involved Dr Edward Storms on Cold Fusion - and the idea of cheap alternative energy. The title of the talk will be, 'What is Cold Fusion and Why Should you Care?' (see also www.worldnpa.org/site/event/?eventid=508 and in addition, Thunderbolts has a post on the thermo-nuclear Sun theory at www.thunderbolts.info/wp/2012/05/01/firing-fusion/

The magnetosphere from a different perspective

Member Gary has wrote in to say that the image of Earth's magnetotail on page 21 of http://tallbloke.files.wordpress.com/2012/04/the-mystery-of-the-missing-... is very similar to Horus Behdety, the winged disc, manifest as Amenhotep III (see www.gks.uk.com/winged-disk-mars/ and www.gks.uk.com/Horus-Behdety-Winged-Disk/ - an interesting observation.

An experiment fit for the Electric Universe theory?

At http://phys.org/print255061090.html ... NASA is preparing a new mission, the Magnetospheric Multiscale mission - planned to launc in 2014. The 'Fast Plasma Instrument' is 100 times faster than anything that has gone before and the idea is to find out what is going on with so called 'magnetic reconnection'. Scientists are puzzled by magnetic lines that appear to cross and create burst of energy.

Cosmic Rays and the Moon's magnetosphere

At www.thunderbolts.info/wp/2012/04/24/cosmic-ions/ there ios a post and a nice picture from the Icecube neutrino laboratory, on the fact that the origins of cosmic rays do not appear to be supernovae driven, commented on here a few days ago. Stephen Smith explains that in the Electric Universe theory cosmic rays are accelerated by double layers (as described in 1929 by Irving Langmuir) and form when electric currents flow through plasma.

The Venus Transit and the Venus magnetotail

At http://tallbloke.wordpress.com/2012/04/20/tim-cullen-the-secret-astronom... ... is a post by Tim Cullen, The Secret Astronomers Other Ball, April 20th. On the 5th and 6th of June this year there will be a Transit of Venus and scientists expect it to be a feast of settled science (and the author provides a list of names of past scientists that each brought something to the table). Tim Cullen looks at some of the science - the stuff they are avoiding. Basically, this is the magnetic mysteries.

Sun spots and Climate ... but what makes sun spots?

At http://notrickszone.com/2012/04/18/more-reconstructions-show-climate-is-... is taken from Germany's Die Kalt Sonne website which has suddenly become widely read by the general public following the success of the book of the same name, The Cold Sun. i) A Danish team from the University of Aarhus have published a study on climate in the journal, The Holocene.
