Sol88 spews out the insane garbage and lies from his deluded cult.

No asteroid has ever become a comet. We have observed a few asteroids ejecting dust with no gases which makes them active asteroids or asteroids with some comet-like activity.

'Active Asteroid' Bennu is not a comet. The subject of this thread is Sol88's electric comet insanity.

Exclamation Another 12 items of ignorance, idiocy, delusions, derails, insults, and lies

Another spate of an estimated 1128 items of ignorance, idiocy (citing irrelevant mainstream papers), delusion, derails, insults, and lies from 27 July 2018 to 17 April 2019 (usually an average of ~5 pathetic delusions or lies a day).
Sol88's stupidity of supporting electric comet insanity started on 6th July 2009.

Sol88's insane electric comet playbook of ignorance, delusions, idiocy (god of the gaps/false dichotomy/irrelevant mainstream citations), insults (an insane one of Michael O'Hearn), lies

Sol88's electric comet insanity (comets are rocks blasted from planets by electric discharges, etc.).

18 November 2010: The lies, failures and successes of Thunderbolts Deep Impact predictions by Wal Thornhill
10th April 2015: The ignorance, delusions and lies in the Thunderbolts web site, videos, etc.
13 April 2018: A couple of the delusions in Scott's Birkeland current paper.

The electric comet delusion has at least 45 years without a scientific electric comet model or observations to support it!

Over 3 years of abysmal fear of doing basic physics: 25 June 2015 Sol88: Use a impact calculator to calculate the size of the crater on a comet made of rock by the Deep Impact impactor.

SAFIRE insanity in addition to his electric comet insanity.

The real surprise is inside the undamaged meteorite: a carbon-rich fragment that is only about one-tenth of a milimeter across. With chemical and isotopic analysis, the researchers show that this strange material inside the comet likely originated from the icy regions in the outer solar system. It's the same place where objects in the Kuiper Belt and many comets formed.
That fragment is not young as possible from Sol88's electric comet insanity.
Quote:
Just approximately 3 million to 3.5 million years after the formation of the solar system, this small fragment was caught and encased inside the asteroid from which the meteorite LaPaz Icefield 02342 came from.

^^^^Indeedy. However, you'd have thought that if an impact that ejected thousands of tonnes of solid ice from a comet didn't disavow them of their strange beliefs, then this is going to be well beyond their pay grade!

Ockams razor.

There’s no difference between comets and asteroids, more or less. Ryugu and Bennu are going to mix things up, along long with the Rosetta data.

Fly bys are good’n all, though very limited in their data, in comparison to in situ.

Good to see the mainstream taking the time time to go to one active asteroid and one garden variety asteroid. See the difference.

So say the EU.

Nope, absolutely nothing to do with the idiocy proposed by EU clowns.

Electric fields have everything to do with the electric comets and active asteroids!

You you can’t tell me the difference an active asteroid and a comet.

Ah, these would be the magical electrical fields from the sun that can repel both positive and negative charges AND are undetectable by anything we put in orbit, but at the same time cause discharges so large we can see them from earth?

How's the math for those fields coming along? Because without explaining that your 'model' is based upon fantasy less researched than Harry Potter.

If you agree there is an ambipolar electric field and charge separation at comet 67P, I could have a crack at the Sun if you’d like.

Do you agree, there is charge separation, as per Decca’s paper Electron and Ion Dynamics of the Solar Wind Interaction with a Weakly Outgassing Comet and ambipolar electric field in play as required the ELECTRIC COMET, as per Kinetic simulation of neutral/ionized gas and electrically charged dust in the coma of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko and Energy conversion in cometary atmospheres for starters...?

Do you acknowledge this is indeed the case LS?

Or more to the point if you have faith in black holes, Big Bang, dark matter, dark energy, magnetic reconnection and SR/GR, then no matter the data and what I point out people like you are a special type of people, special like the ones that knock on my door Sunday mornings. An unwavering faith in thier belief system.

Yet again, absolutely nothing to do with your idiotic, failed model. No discharges, no rock, plenty of ice and plenty of gas. Show where your lunatic model has not failed 100%. You can't. Nor can you offer any science or mechanisms for any of your stupid Velikovskian beliefs, on anything to do with astrophysics. Your cult does not possess anybody capable in that area. Merely mythologists, without a clue what they are talking about. Just like you.

Blather moan whinge, jonesdave116. All you have left, pathetic.

Old papers from a fly mission, oh dear.

There you go again, focussing on unimportant details because you refuse to admit your entire 'model' is based upon pointless fantasy.

For your model to work there NEEDS to be a massive electrical field centered on the sun. It's the very core of the EC/EU fantasy.
Without this supposed field everything else is pointless.
We see protons and electrons move in the same direction from the sun.
Which in electric fields is impossible.

So, resolve that problem first, then focus on the details.

No, they are not old papers from old missions There is no electrical discharging. No EDM (lol). Therefore your models has failed. There is no rock detected. Therefore you model fails. There is plenty of gas seen, and plenty of ice. Therefore your laughable model fails. Want me to quote the relevant passages from the science-free garbage produced by T & T? Show me where those above findings are wrong. In the scientific literature. You can't, because your impossible woo has failed. Why are you still here?

For the hard of thinking, I do not want idiotic games with wording; I want papers that show;
  • Planetary type rock has been detected. After all, your clueless cult leaders expressly say that comets were blasted off of planets by impossible, giant lightning bolts (lol). So, detections of basalt, granite and sandstone would be a good start.
  • Electric Discharge Machining has been detected at comets (deary me!). Electric discharges (i.e. lightning bolts) have been detected at comets. After all the jets we (barely) see, are supposed to be electric discharges to the nucleus, according to the thickos that head your cult. Try to refer to the magnetometer data, if you can. What do the observations of jets tell us? What direction are they headed in? Were any bizarre, unexpected signals seen in the mag data prior to, or during, the observations of said jets?
  • Was H20 detected by various instruments at the times that the solar wind was getting nowhere near the comet? The dates you need to be looking at are roughly April 2015 - Dec 2015. If so, refer to the scientific literature to show how a comet could produce any gas in this scenario that isn't due to sublimating ices.
  • Explain, with reference to the scientific literature, how the ice ejected by an impact at Tempel 1 could have come from anywhere other than the comet itself. Explain, with reference to the scientific literature, how the water ice entrained in CO2 jets, and seen in visible light creating a veritable snowstorm around Hartley 2, can be explained without the ice being from the comet.

That'll do for now. Anything you post that is not related to the questions I've asked you to answer, will be taken as an admission that your woo has failed 100%.

Is there an ambipolar electric field at comets?

Is there charge separation at a comet?

Is there charged dust at comets along with charged particles?

Three very simply yes/no answers. No math involved, no long winded deep explanations, just yes or no.

Are you able to do it Lurakk Sisser?

Seems like your struggling with this already and you want to jump feet first into the ELECTRIC SUN.

Perhaps you should start a new thread on the electric Sun.

Cometary Dust

Quote:
In addition, the best fit to the spectral data depends on the basis set of minerals selected for inclusion in the fitting routine. With these limitations, the spectrum was best fit by 18.2% of the emission from forsterite, 10% from amorphous silicate, 18.8% from Mg–Fe-sulfide, 8.2% from clay, 6.8% from diopside, 5.9% from orthoenstatite, 5.0% from fayalite, 4.7% from carbonates, 4.0% from amorphous carbon, 2.3% from ionized PAHs, and only 2.9% from water ice crystals, with the remainder from gaseous water and minor phases (Lisse et al. 2006).
Quote:
The Rosetta mission provided the first direct evidence for the presence of electrically charged dust particles in a coma.

The fundamental physics of charged cometary dust has been studied for a long time (Mendis and Horányi 2013). Dust charging is a delicate interplay between several currents, including electron and ion collection currents from the surrounding plasma, ultraviolet induced photoelectron currents, secondary electron emission (due to energetic ion and/or electron bombardment), thermo-ionic emission, field emission (due to large surface fields), etc. Asaruleofthumb,adustparticle collects about 700 extra electrons per unit particle volumeequivalent radius (measured in µm) and unit electric potential difference between the particle surface and the surrounding plasma (measured in V). This means that in the solar wind a particle of 1 µm size can have about 104 extra electrons.
Just sayin. You seems to struggle with the latest papers somewhat jd116.

Go read up, champ.

First admission that his model is a failure. That is an irrelevance. Want me to quote T & T from their joke of a poster? That is your model. And get on with answering the questions I asked. Show me the evidence.

Three very simply yes/no answers. No math involved, no long winded deep explanations, just yes or no.

Are you able to do it Lurakk Sisser?

Seems like your struggling with this already and you want to jump feet first into the ELECTRIC SUN.

Perhaps you should start a new thread on the electric Sun.
Irrelevant. Nothing to do with the total failure of your model, which you have now admitted.

So you don’t believe there is an ambipolar electric field at 67P, no hope for both you and LS on understanding something so complicated as the electric Sun.

You’ve some catching up to do, so toddle off and read up.

Electron and Ion Dynamics of the Solar Wind Interaction with a Weakly Outgassing Comet Jan Deca

Quote:
Although globally the dynamics of the solar wind-weak comet system is that of a four-fluid coupled system, we conclude that a multispecies electron-kinetic description is a must to fully capture the complex global solar wind-comet interaction process.

Not only electrons but the beams of negatively charged dust.

Good start on the electric comet.

And another admission that his silly model has failed. An ambipolar field is irrelevant to EC woo. You need EDM (lol) and discharges. Address the questions, instead of Gish-galloping about irrelevancies.

So you finally admit there is an ambipolar electric field at comet 67P.

Progress well done jd116?

Now how we going with the charge separation, as per Decca’s paper?

Struggling with that as well, it seems.

Yet another admission that his woo has failed. It is irrelevant to your failed woo. Answer the questions I asked. I am sick of your pathetic avoidance. You don't even understand what the ambipolar field is doing! It has been discussed to death, and the upshot is that it is nothing to do with your woo.

And another admission that his woo has failed. Irrelevant to your failed woo. Answer the questions;

For the hard of thinking, I do not want idiotic games with wording; I want papers that show;
  • Planetary type rock has been detected. After all, your clueless cult leaders expressly say that comets were blasted off of planets by impossible, giant lightning bolts (lol). So, detections of basalt, granite and sandstone would be a good start.
  • Electric Discharge Machining has been detected at comets (deary me!). Electric discharges (i.e. lightning bolts) have been detected at comets. After all the jets we (barely) see, are supposed to be electric discharges to the nucleus, according to the thickos that head your cult. Try to refer to the magnetometer data, if you can. What do the observations of jets tell us? What direction are they headed in? Were any bizarre, unexpected signals seen in the mag data prior to, or during, the observations of said jets?
  • Was H20 detected by various instruments at the times that the solar wind was getting nowhere near the comet? The dates you need to be looking at are roughly April 2015 - Dec 2015. If so, refer to the scientific literature to show how a comet could produce any gas in this scenario that isn't due to sublimating ices.
  • Explain, with reference to the scientific literature, how the ice ejected by an impact at Tempel 1 could have come from anywhere other than the comet itself. Explain, with reference to the scientific literature, how the water ice entrained in CO2 jets, and seen in visible light creating a veritable snowstorm around Hartley 2, can be explained without the ice being from the comet.

Or even better still describe what’s going on in FIG. 2. 3D overview of the four-fluid behavior of the solar wind interaction with a weakly outgassing comet, in Decca’s paper.

Or if that’s just too hard a question, here’s another. Iis the plasma in the coma ofthe comet quasi neutral?

Thanks, jonesdave116 and RealityCheck, for not letting all this nonsense go unanswered.

Sol88, I also wonder why you continue posting as if you support the EU, when it is obvious that you have left the EU behind a long time ago. These days you seem to think that if electrical forces are in any way involved at all, then you have "won" the debate, even if the original EU model is at odds with what you have found?

Does it not bother you that it is mainstream papers that you quote, and nobody else in the scientific world seem to think that conventional science is crumbling?

No not really, just happy the mainstream are still “discovering” surprises!


The implications for the mainstream are quite severe.

Your more than comfortable for there to be charge separation and the associated ELECTRIC FIELDS, I take it?

That’s not just “mentioning” electrical forces, sport. Which if your interested is some 39 orders of magnitude.

Nice try though, it’s a classic.

It has already been explained. It is not creating EDM or discharges, is it? Another admission that your model has failed. Why don't you tell us what you think it is doing?

.
And another admission that your model has failed. You have no idea what is going on in that figure. You do not have a clue about plasma physics. As has been pointed out to you numerous times by a plasma physicist. Your model failed 100%. As you now agree.
