eulogoDec 14, 2009 Seeing Red Giants
Many red giant stars exhibit variations in their luminosities over periods of several months to a few years. Recent observations “show that all the possible explanations…fail.”

Dec 15, 2009 Faster Than Light: Part One
How big is the Universe? How old is it?

Dec 16, 2009 VISTA’s First Light
A new telescope designed to see objects in visible and infrared light has just come online.

Dec 17, 2009 Faster Than Light: Part Two
If distance calculations based on redshift are inaccurate, what does that mean for the consensus opinion about the age or the size of the Universe?

Dec 18, 2009 Things that Go Bump in the Light

eulogoDec 07, 2009 Solar Breeze
The intensity of the Sun’s magnetic field and solar wind have declined to a record low level.

Dec 08, 2009 Joining the Dots Part One: Fireworks on New Year’s Day
Can there be any truth in the traditional linkage of a total conjunction of planets and universal disaster or is this just arrant nonsense?

Dec 09, 2009 Joining the Dots Part Two: The Dating Scene in the Sky
Ancient astronomers from the Hellenistic world to China believed that the cosmos is ravaged by deluges and fires whenever the five naked-eye planets, the moon and the sun ‘meet’ in a linear conjunction.

Dec 10, 2009 Is the Universe Recession Proof?
Cosmologists are no closer to solving the dark energy problem.

Dec 11, 2009 The Global Problem of Turbulence Cooling
Could the widespread use of windmills be responsible for recent observations that the European continent is rapidly cooling?

eulogoNov 23, 2009 Dark Mode Galaxies
In an Electric Universe, it stands to reason that some galaxies will not be energetic enough for stars to form.

Nov 24, 2009 Imagine Another Wet, Rocky Planet
Geocentrism hides in the assumptions that support conventional astronomy. The result is unexpected observations and failed predictions.

Nov 25, 2009 Dwarf Galaxies Pose Big Problems
The swarm of small galaxies orbiting the Milky Way are too few and out of place, according to astronomers.

Nov 27, 2009 Space Tornadoes Cause a Stir
The idea of a giant radiant pillar rising up from the earth to the sky would have sounded too fantastic to be true – until recently.

Nov 30, 2009 Craters and Buttes Part One
Craters often have flat bottoms and forty-five degree slopes. Buttes often exhibit forty-five degree shoulders and flat tops.

Dec 01, 2009 An Aristotelian Hangover
The astronomers responsible for the news feeds in our tabloids seem to have a profound disliking for the idea that the solar system, including the earth, has suffered catastrophic changes within the past few thousand years.

Dec 02, 2009 A Twist in the Ring of Centaurus A
A new infrared image of the Centaurus A galaxy reveals a ring of stars inside the visually obscuring dust around its core. Astronomers assume the ring is the remnant of a smaller galaxy that merged with the larger one.

Dec 03, 2009 Unveiling More of Mercury’s Secrets
The innermost planet is continuing to provide scientists with new, unexpected revelations.

Gamma ray frequency electromagnetic radiation has been detected in terrestrial lightning strokes.

Nov 17, 2009 Kuiper Crater’s Rays
The latest images from the MESSENGER mission reveal a planetary surface similar to Earth’s Moon. Are both bodies the progeny of one electrical parent?

Nov 18, 2009 Planetary Paradigms
A new mission designed to study the Sun’s electrical relationship with Mars will soon be launched.

Nov 19, 2009 Sungrazers
Some comets fly in close to the Sun and then loop back into the outer reaches of the Solar System, with unusual results.

Nov 20, 2009 The Spirit is Willing
The Spirit rover has reached an impasse. Is this the end of its mission?

Astrophysicists speculate that the early Universe was powered by dark matter annihilation.

Nov 11, 2009 Where the Star Winds Blow
Radial filaments within galactic “superwinds” identify them as plasma phenomena.

Nov 12, 2009 Hot Gas vs. Electric Currents
Astronomers have detected a strand of galaxies and gas flowing into a remote cluster.

eulogoNov 02, 2009 Stars in Collision Part 2
Astronomers have recently discovered a band of energetic neutral atoms around the sky. This discovery supports the hypothesis that the Sun captured a previously independent Saturnian system, in which Saturn was the brown-dwarf primary for the planets Earth, Mars, and Venus.

Nov 03, 2009 Greater and Greater Attractors
Galaxy clusters are being pulled by a force emanating from “beyond the horizon” of the universe. Could electrified plasma be the culprit?
