Solar System’s History in Disarray | Space News


Welcome to Space News from
the Electric Universe, brought to you by The
Thunderbolts Project™ at Thunderbolts.info It’s a story that has been told
by scientists and educators with great confidence
for many decades. Billions of years ago, the
planets and our parent star formed in a gravitationally
collapsing cloud of gas and dust inside an object called
a nebular cloud. The leftover material was the source of our solar
system’s asteroids, comets and meteoroids. Collisions between asteroids are also
thought to be the source of meteoroids that occasionally
strike the Earth. These bodies therefore have long been
viewed as types of Rosetta stones, which can tell scientists about primordial
conditions in our solar system’s infancy. The Electric
Universe hypothesis, which includes very different stories
of our solar system’s formation, and of recent planetary
catastrophe, offers a very different explanation for the
origins of asteroids, comets and meteoroids. This hypothesis has
always claimed that these bodies were electrically blasted
from the surfaces of planets and moons, in a relatively recent epoch of planetary
instability in the inner solar system. Although institutional science has
never entertained this hypothesis, in recent years, the planetary
origins of these bodies is a thesis that has found its way
into the scientific literature. In 2016, we reported on the chemical
analysis of a meteorite called Gujba. What the investigators found was
the meteorites geological origins were much too complex for any
conventional theory to explain. The team’s conclusion was that the
meteorite formed from the molten debris of a planetary collision
in the asteroid belt. A Phys.org report on
the research states, “Based on chemical traces
preserved in Gujba, the target planet might have been even
larger than the asteroid 4 Vesta, one of the largest bodies in the asteroid
belt with a diameter of about 326 miles.” A lead investigator
said of the discovery, “People used to say that
meteorites like Gujba were the building blocks
of the solar system. Now, we know it’s the construction
debris of the planets.” Today, a new paper published in
the Journal Nature Astronomy offers a further breakthrough for
proponents of planetary catastrophe. The study suggests that the large majority
of asteroids in the inner asteroid belt are pieces of 5 annihilated
worlds, called planetesimals. The clue the team followed was the
unusual inclined or tilted orbits of near-earth asteroids. Of course, the only mechanism
the team can propose that might have created
these weird inclinations is violent collisions. A lead author of
the paper states, “We couldn’t think of any forces that are
acting to produce that distribution.” However, “if a big asteroid is smashed
up and it has a high inclination, then those fragments have
that same inclination. “The team suggests that as many as 85%
of bodies in the inner asteroid belt are fragments of these
hypothetical planetesimals. A Washington Post report on this paper
acknowledges a completely unresolved problem with the standard beliefs
about planetary formation. It states: “According to the traditional story
of the origin of the solar system, the planets formed
slowly from accretion, as particles in the circumstellar disk
clumped together to great pebbles, then slightly larger spheres, on and on
until they reached their current size. But when scientists try to re-create this
story with computer models, it breaks down. Rather than growing, these incipient planets tend to
splinter after reaching pebble size. How could this process result in bodies
the size of those in the asteroid belt, let alone whole planets? The Washington Post reporter is correct to
refer to these beliefs as parts of a “story” rather than a
hypothesis or theory. A successful hypothesis or
theory will make predictions that discovery
actually confirms. Instead, the standard fiction of
our solar system’s formation, which relies entirely on processes such as
gravitational collapse, collisions, and accretion has failed both experimentally
and observationally, resulting in endless ad hoc theories tacked
on to try to preserve the discredited story. Today, the latest insights into
the compositions of comets, asteroids and
meteorites on Earth offers no support to our solar system’s
alleged 4.5-billion year history. We reported on one such landmark
discovery earlier this year, with new insights into the most
mysterious meteorite ever found on Earth, called the Hypatia stone. For four years, scientists have
studied the meteorite fragments found in a Libyan desert glass
field in southwest Egypt. As reported by Phys.org in 2018,
research from a team in Johannesburg has “…provided unsettling
answers that spiral away from conventional views of the material
our solar system was formed from.” The matrix of minerals composing the Hypatia
stone has been described as a “fruitcake”, resembling no known
meteorite or comet, and consisting of strange and never
before seen combinations of minerals. And the dust material found
in the fragments confounds the very foundations of the
solar nebular hypothesis. As described by Phys.org, “Generally, science says that
our solar system’s planets ultimately formed from a huge,
ancient cloud of interstellar dust. (the solar nebula) in space. The first part of that process
would be much like dust bunnies coagulating in an unswept room. Science also holds that the
solar nebula was homogenous, that is, the same kind
of dust everywhere. But Hypatia’s chemistry
tugs at this view.” Coagulating dust bunnies is ultimately
the best analogy scientists can offer for planet formation in a
gravity-only cosmology. But allow the organizational
electromagnetic force, a thousand billion billion billion billion
times more powerful than gravity, and the picture becomes both
more plausible and coherent. The Electric Universe has always stated
that the formation of a solar system does not begin with gravitational
collapse in a nebular cloud. And, in recent years, the
Electric Universe prediction that stars form along vast networks of
filaments, like pearls on a string, has been confirmed. Like lightning, the filaments are
of remarkably constant width, an impossible result of
gravitational processes. And as the Electric
Universe also predicts, the most prominent filaments can be seen drawing
matter from networks of smaller filaments. Smaller coronal filaments are also characteristic
of electrical discharges in plasma. Although telescopes can
currently only pick up the largest bodies forming
along these filaments, the Electric Universe
proposes that some planets, including the long-mysterious
so-called Hot Jupiters, also form along these
same lightning channels, with other rocky planets likely being
ejected from the cores of gas giants. Allow this possibility, and a new and
profound understanding may be possible both for our solar system, and for the thousands of seemingly
baffling exoplanetary systems. For a quarter of a century, exoplanets and their parent stars
have shattered all predictions based on the two and a half
centuries old nebular hypothesis. As acknowledged in the 2014 Nature
article ‘Planets in Chaos’, “The discovery of thousands of stars
systems wildly different from our own has demolished ideas
about how planets form. Astronomers are searching
for a whole new theory.” The mysteries range from tight
conglomerations of exoplanets packed impossibly close
to their parent stars, to exoplanets with
retrograde orbits – that is orbits in the opposite directions
of the spin of their parent stars; to tightly packed planets with radically
different chemical compositions, in complete defiance of the
belief that our own solar system was formed from material which was graded
in properties moving outward from the Sun; and enormous Hot Jupiters which orbit their
parent stars at much too close a distance for the planets to have formed
through gravitational accretion. These discoveries also affirm another
aspect of the Electric Universe theory, as proposed by physicist
Wal Thornhill, that is that the gravitational force is
modified by the electrical nature of any body, so if a body is charged more
or less than those around it, there will be a charge exchange. And in the process, gravity will
modify the orbits of those bodies. The result is that capture is much
more likely in the Electric Universe than in standard cosmology. The abundance of binary stars, as well
as seemingly odd planetary systems, is expected in the
Electric Universe. This includes the puzzling retrograde
orbits of some exoplanets. As Thornhill has
explained previously, if a body is being captured
from some nearby angle, it can rotate in the
opposite direction, or rotate about the poles
of its adoptive star. The study of exoplanetary systems
has had another influence on the way astronomers
view our own solar system: increasingly, scientists entertain the
notion of dramatic planetary migration since the solar
system’s formation. As described in a
2018 Phys.org report, “…in our solar system, the inner planets have
surprisingly large spacing and diverse sizes. Abundant evidence in the solar system
suggests that Jupiter and Saturn disrupted our system’s
early structure, resulting in the four widely-spaced
terrestrial planets we have today.” Many scientists today now suggest
that these gas giants acted as “wrecking balls” in the
early solar system, destroying a generation of planets and robbing
the planet Mars of its lighter elements. The Electric Universe /
catastrophist theory agrees that these planets
acted as “wrecking balls”, though not through tidal forces
and mechanical collisions, and NOT billions of
years in the past. The ravaged surfaces
of planets and moons do not speak to random
impacts over eons of time. Rather, they show all of the
predictable scarring features produced in experiments
with electrical discharges. It is not a coincidence
that, as noted earlier, the accretion process fails completely to
achieve objects even the size of asteroids. In the Electric Universe, asteroids,
as well as comets and meteoroids, did not accrete
billions of years ago, but were ripped from the surfaces of planets
and moons by interplanetary lightning. Of course, the desiccated, rocky appearance
of every comet nucleus imaged to date — from comet Borrelly in 2001, to comet Wild 2 in 2004, to comet Tempel 1 in 2005, to the recent Rosetta
mission to comet 67P — was also an explicit prediction
of the Electric Universe. In contrast, on the screen
is an artistic rendition depicting comet scientists’ vision of a comet
nucleus prior to the 1986 mission to Halley. And yet, here is the
actual surface of a comet, whose planetary features
are stunningly obvious. Recently, scientists attempting to account
for both 67P’s mysterious double-lobed shape and the amazing stratigraphy
seen on the nucleus, which is virtually indistinguishable from
stratified sedimentary and igneous rock on our own planet, performed computer simulations to attempt
to prove that the comet was formed by the collision and
accretion of two comets. As reported by Phys.org
earlier this year, “Comets which consist of two
parts, like Chury (67P), can form after a catastrophic
collision of larger bodies. Such collisions may have taken place
in a later phase of our solar system, which suggests that Chury can be much
younger than previously assumed. This is shown through computer simulations
by an international research group with the participation of
the University of Bern.” But before creating virtual reality
simulations of cometary collisions, scientists must first acknowledge the
extraordinary improbability of such collisions. In fact, an official webpage for the
Rosetta mission states of the Kuiper Belt and the hypothetical Oort Cloud, “Each of these regions
contain billions of comets, but they have so much room
in the vast rooms of space that they get no closer to each other
than we on Earth do to the sun.” It could be said that some progress
has been made in comet science, in the sense that scientists at
least now recognize that comet 67P is not billions of years old. As noted in the
phys.org report, 67P: “…did not necessarily have to originate from
the early formation phase of the solar system, as has been claimed repeatedly.” This should register as
a stunning admission, since the very name of the
ESA’s mission, Rosetta, rose from the unfounded belief
that comets are “Rosetta stones,” tracing back to our solar system’s
mythical 4.5-billion year origins. But, what real progress can be made
when all of astronomy and astrophysics functions under the untenable
belief that gravity, and gravity alone,
rules the cosmos. As noted by Thunderbolts
contributor Mel Acheson “…the point of science
is not merely to explain but to find out which explanation
is actually the case. For that, you need more than one
explanation from which to choose…. Verification alone
is inadequate: You need to search for alternatives and
to test them to gain reliability.” The vision of a solar system
and its celestial bodies that formed from gravitational
collapse, collisions and accretion has resulted in a story that has gone
off the rails, into total disarray. Every attempt to
redeem the story leads only to further contradictions
and intractable problems. A new story, a narrative without
contradiction or confusion is waiting to be written
in our Electric Universe.
