One of the largest planets in the Solar System is also one of the most enigmatic.

Jul 16, 2009 Is Lightning the Strongest Creative Force?

eulogoJul 06, 2009 Riders of the Night
The ‘Wild Hunt’ is a name for the spectacle of an often frightful troop of hunters seen to move across the sky or on the surface of the earth.

Jul 07, 2009 Adhering to Fusion
Thermonuclear fusion reactions from deep in the core are said to drive the Sun. It has become so commonplace an assumption that most solar physicists say, “What else could it be?”

Jul 08, 2009 Ring of Ice, Ring of Fire
Everyone knows the Ice Age was a time when the Earth cooled, glaciers moved down from the North, and the mammoths froze. However, everyone is mistaken.

Jul 09, 2009 Missing Matter-Missing Discharge
This third Picture of the Day in the series of contrasting visions compares two views of craters and rilles.

Jul 10, 2009 The First ‘People’ in Space
According to some traditions, in a previous era, before the flood or some other global disaster, the earth was inhabited by a race of strange creatures exhibiting a mixture of human and animal traits.

Astrophysicists are often surprised by observations because their theories are inadequate to explain them.

Jul 01, 2009 Tales of Brave Ulysses
The end of an 18 year mission in polar orbit around the Sun.

Jul 02, 2009 A Magnetic Problem with “Protogalaxies”
It seems that it doesn’t matter how far out in space we choose to observe, there are galaxies, fully formed galaxies organized in higher level structures that stretch for billions of parsecs.

Jul 03, 2009 Divining the Meaning of the Aurora
Few natural phenomena have elicited such deep emotions from human observers as the polar lights.

eulogoJun 22, 2009 Nebular Currents
Electric Universe theory proposes that most of the Universe is behaving according to the laws of plasma dynamics.

Jun 23, 2009 How Long Ago?
When presented with the Electric Universe theory and the planetary catastrophes that might have occurred in the past, a commonly evoked question is: When did it all take place?

Jun 24, 2009 Solar Electricity
Ideas about the Sun based on fusion reactions in a dense core do not fit the observations as well as those based on electricity.

Jun 25, 2009 How Long Ago? Part Two
Geologists continue to depend on theories that were first proposed in the seventeenth century, or perhaps by the ancient Greeks.

Jun 26, 2009 Lake Shalbatana
As is so often the case, what is familiar becomes the basis for explaining the extraordinary.

eulogoJun 15, 2009 Electric Wind
It is the planets farthest from the Sun that have the fastest winds.

Jun 16, 2009 Frozen in the Dark
A new theory states that dark matter might prevent stars from aging normally and preserve them for billions of years.

Jun 17, 2009 Red Clusters
The light from remote globular clusters should be blue according to theory because the further away one looks the further back in time one sees.

Jun 18, 2009 Before the Beginning
Thomas Hobbes wrote that life in a state of nature was “solitary, poor, nasty, brutish, and short.” Ancient legends from around the world spell out the nature of that state before the beginning of society and civilization.

Jun 19, 2009 Reconnoitering the Moon
New lunar missions will look for water and study the Moon’s composition.

Could there be Earth-like planets circling other stars in our galaxy?

Jun 09, 2009 Electric Baubles in the Night
Lights on a Christmas tree depend on electric power. So do the lights in space.

Jun 10, 2009 Celestial Bodies On Their Guard
Long before western scientists formulated the laws of gravity and electromagnetism, skywatchers grappled with the question how the planets were able to move independently from the fixed stars.

Jun 11, 2009 Titan Tells More Strange Tales
Images from Cassini are said to reveal deltas, river channels and now ocean basins filled with super-cooled hydrocarbons. Does electricity play a role on Titan?

Jun 12, 2009 Plasma In Three Dimensions
Plasma is often described as the fourth state of matter. Since it makes up more than 99% of the Universe, it should be reckoned the first state.

Almost a year into its extended mission, Cassini continues to reveal Titan’s chaotic, enigmatic surface.

Jun 02, 2009 Supermassive Problems with Black Holes
A gravitational point source more than 70 million times the mass of the Sun is theorized to inhabit this galactic core. Are scientists misinterpreting their own observations?

Jun 03, 2009 The New Solar Cycle
The twenty-fourth recorded sunspot cycle is off to a slow start.

Jun 04, 2009 “Hot Hot Hot!”

eulogoMay 25, 2009 Not Seeing What’s Not Believed
New observations to measure the outer halo of the galaxy M87 find that it isn’t there. Another unexpected result fails to elicit acknowledgment that the theory predicting the halo has been falsified.

May 26, 2009 How Should We Presume?
The burden of proof is on gravity theorists to explain some mechanism that suppresses the large initial electromagnetic energies and then enables the weak force of gravity to build them back up again.

May 27, 2009 What is Truth?
Astronomical research in the virtual realm instigates foregone conclusions.

May 28, 2009 Vampire Astronomy
A complex central network of filamentary structure spirals down to the center of the galaxy. Astronomers say it provides new insights into super-massive black holes. It is more likely that it demonstrates electrical effects.

Saturn’s rings will soon disappear from view. What force created and sustains them?

May 21, 2009 So Hot You’re Cool, So Cool You’re Hot
Clouds of ionized gas and dust in space are not heated up by gravity, they are compressed by electrical forces and emit synchrotron radiation.

May 22, 2009 Magnetic Monsters
Extreme magnetic fields in space are said to be caused by the high-speed rotation of neutron stars. One of many cases where a theory is built on the incorrect assumptions of another theory.
