It's been rather quiet here in the 'electric comet' thread.

Sol88! Your failures in comprehension are legendary! Shall we discuss?

I give you an opportunity to educate and enlighten the science community! You give us NOTHING!

In my last post, I asked you 56 specific questions designed to explore your 'electric comet' model! Your response? SILENCE! DEAD AIR! NOTHING!

How can I help you build a working model of an 'electric comet' or an 'electric star' if you don't answer my questions? How can we get to the meat of your model without numbers?

And where's the link to the A'Hearn et al (TBD) paper that talks about comets not being made of ROCK? What are you afraid of discovering, Sol88? Why do you fear looking through the telescope? What might you find?

Please reread my last post, and try again! There are some really important 'electric comet' modeling questions that require your expert input! I offer my thanks in advance!

Now, let's address your pithy response to my last post ...

I’d be able to call them stoney agglomerations with h little no ice, if that’s what’s settled on for the future description of cometary nuclei.
Really? "Everybody knows comets are not rocks." Did you really say that? "Everybody ...?"

Remember, Sol88! The internet never, ever forgets! I present for your consideration, a few random quotes from our resident 'ec' expert! Please, note the dates!

Simple and unexciting, apologies again.

I mean if it looks like a duck, quacks like a duck and walks like a duck...then it is most likely a DUCK!
So, nothing has changed in nearly ten years! Including the fact we still have no 'electric comet' model!

your are the brilliant mathematicians your work it out into any unit you like, facts are still the same, asteroids like comets are "rock"!!
Like 21/Lutetia with a bulk density of 3400 kg/m3? Or 4/Vesta with a bulk density of 3456 kg/m3?

This is what we've called the coma.

Lets take what we do know;

Any object not protected by an atmosphere or magnetosphere and in the solar wind stream will charge positive and the sunward facing side and negative on the nightside. This is a fact.

not sure if its gunna give as anything regarding the Oort Belt/Pristine left overs but Rosetta will tell us if they are Dirty Snowballs or solid bone dry rock.

Interesting times ahead and fully hope they achieve thier primary goal.

Would you like to discuss Nordheim et al (2015) (another mainstream paper, written by mainstream scientists, in support of the mainstream comet model)? Or perhaps you would like to continue our discussion of Lisse et al (2006) instead?

3d) there are (nested/stairstep transformer/capacitor) double layers at comets
3e) these double layers form the comets' comas
6) the charged dust so machined forms highly collimated, bursting jets; these are the jets we observe

There seems to be a small contradiction in 1) vs the rest: comet seems to refer to more than the rocky nucleus (in the ELECTRIC COMET model); specifically, a comet has a (non-rocky) coma and jets which are collimated charged dust in addition to a rocky nucleus. Not mentioned are tails.
Two types of tails are observed, I believe, Dust and Plasma.

The dust will be the electrically neutral dust that has previously been machined of the rocky nucleus.

The plasma tail will be another nail in the coffin for the dirtysnowball model.

It forms part of the the overall current system at comets.

You keep saying that, yet never answer the question ... What "ROCKS" are comets made of?

From that we get complex electric fields, double layers, beams or "jets", charged nano-dust, electric currents...kinetic plasma effects!

These applied electric fields on the surface of the comet, most commonly along the terminator but also the small scale terminators from over hangs, boulders, scarps, depressions..etc can be extremely intense this can cause electrostatic disruption of the surface rock releasing fine dust and trapped water from the hydrated minerals along with electrochemical reactions.
Magic, Sol88? As YOU have no way to scientifically expand on this ... MAGIC will have to do!

So so simple.

Please provide an example where I have "changed my mind".

Comet are rocks separating the charges contained with in the solar wind plasma?

What are you failing to grasp, ...?
Would love to see a physical mechanism that describes how a "rock" (e.g., granite) seperates charge!

Dust machined from SOLID ROCK? With a bulk density as low as 800 kg/m3?

And not the "leftovers" from the formation of the solar system...????

More thinking.....
Yes! It would be nice if you started thinking, Sol88! Start by questioning your own world view!

In light of what I've just presented, would you please explain your statement, ... "Everybody knows comets are not rocks." From what we've just read, Sol88, you do not seem to know what your 'electric comet' is actually made of!

And those quotes represent a wee random sample from your confused, disjointed, fragmented, unstructured 'electric comet' model! Would you like to see more?

Or perhaps you would like to take a moment to define in gory detail the following terms and statements!
  1. rock
  2. mostly rock
  3. not rock rock
  4. solid rock
  5. SOLID rock
  6. solid bone dry rock
  7. melted rock (???)
  8. polarized rock
  9. homogeneous consolidated refractory material with an organic coating rock
  10. layered, consolidated, refractory bedrock that is the rocky looking nucleus rock
  11. actual rock
  12. pseudo rock
  13. hard like rock
  14. looks like rock
  15. tastes like rock (???)
  16. feels like rock (???)
  17. not actual rock
  18. a ROCK on an elliptical orbit, charging AND discharging on "inbound" AND "outbound" legs ...!

Tis no wonder there's NO 'electric comet' model! OUR resident 'ec' expert appears utterly confused about the bulk composition and structure of an 'electric comet!' It might help if you STOPPED looking at 'electric' bunny pictures and learned to observe! More to follow on that point ...!

Heads up, Sol88! Before you fire off another post, START THINKING! Slow down when posting! Make an effort to construct sentences that use the "Queen's" English! Or at least the Australian equivalent of same! You may also want to avail yourself of the Spell Checker in the editing window! Doing this will improve your communication skills! Not necessarily your credibility on issues of science! But we can, and will, work on that, too!

Remember, Sol88! Science is hard! Communicating scientific information is hard! If you want anyone to give your 'electric comet' a fair hearing, you need to say what you mean, and mean what you say! Be precise! Be unambiguous! Be "crystal" clear!

Remember, the internet never forgets, Sol88! In the last ten years at the ISF, you have left a trail of EPIC FAILURES, be they technical 'eu/es/ec' errors, logical errors, or failures in basic physics and math (you know, the "fun stuff" your 'electric comet' MUST violate to exist)!

Some more simple questions, Sol88!
  1. How is dust "machined" from a rocky surface without leaving a thermal signature?
  2. What is the "rotational" velocity for a point on 67P's equator?
  3. What is the "time constant" for the capacitance of your 'electric rock?'
  4. ...

Sol88! I've literally thousands of questions that you can't answer regarding your 'electric comet!' And why can't you answer? Simple really! No model! No science! No evidence! Physically IMPOSSIBLE!

I'm not going away, Sol88! This is your 'electric comet' thread! It is incumbent upon you to PROVE your 'electric comet' is physically POSSIBLE!

"... every new paper CONFIRMS ..."
"... dominate factors ...."
"The paper CONFIRMING the ELECTRIC COMET model ...."

Sol88, do you know how we might build a functional 'electric comet' model?

You start by answering my questions! It's really that simple!

Remember --- No numbers! No model! Bad fiction!

What's your next move, Sol88? Will you start answering my questions so that we may attempt to build a working model of an 'electric comet?' Or will you continue to cower in a corner?
