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.

The Sun, the Moon, and weather

Piers Corbyn at www.weatheraction.com is a commercial business but doesn't really give much away about his methodology. Richard Holle appears to follow a similar method of prediction and is open to all to evaluate - see www.aerology.com - look at the blog/research section.

Magnetic Reconnection

Talk of the Devil. In yesterday's post, magnetic reconnection was quoted from a press release by www.space.com (see In the News 8th April, Venus Aurora) and today, the 9th April, at www.thunderbolts.info/forum/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=5882 we have a forum discussion with the title, 'Magnetic Reconnection Plasma Physics 101' - where it claims magnetic reconnection theory is a misunderstood topic. Hannes Alfven, we are told, rejected the concept, but what does the mainstream mean when it uses the term, magnetic reconnection?

Earthquakes and the Moon

At http://chiefio.wordpress.com/2012/03/31/1866-odd-coincidence/ ... in 1866 the winter solstice coincided with a Full Moon and the Moon was also at perigree - its closest point to the Earth. EM Smith then lists a succession of earthquakes around the world - all in 1866, and then adds a few volcanoes to the brew. Might mean nothing at all - might mean something important. Same goes for a piece at http://news.discovery.com/history/bronze-age-calendar-120330.html ... did the ancient Danes have a lunar and solar calendar.
