It is the currents that power the double layer lie that do not exist.

Another part of the double layers lie is that double layers are not powered by currents !
Double layers can be powered by changes in properties of the plasma, e.g. density.
Double layers can be powered by plasma instabilities that generate electric currents.

Double layers have been explained to Sol88 many times which makes his double layer assertion into a repeated double layer lie.

Emphasizes the insanity of the electric comet theory which has only ignorant delusions about comet tails.

This is a mainstream ices and dust comet paper using real physics to analyze real comet tails.

And Decca’s paper? What Debye length was he using?

Abysmally ignorant because
  • Outgassing happens at a comet surface as explained to him many times over the last 10 years. The paper is not about the surface of a comet, it is about the atmosphere of a comet.
  • The abstract explicitly states the model starts at 150 km away from the comet nucleus.
  • The paper states what the cause of the acceleration is in the first sentence of the abstract - the interaction of the solar wind with the atmosphere of a comet !

Double layers, ya let’s talk about them again.

Tell me more about the Double layer can be powered by changes in properties of the plasma, e.g. density, In relation to the diamagnetic cavity.

Any density changes there?

Maybe you’ve already read Plasma Density Structures at Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko
Quote:
We present Rosetta RPC case study from four events at various radial distance, phase angle and local time from autumn 2015, just after perihelion of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. Pulse like (high amplitude, up to minutes in time) signatures are seen with several RPC instruments in the plasma density (LAP, MIP), ion energy and flux (ICA) as well as magnetic field intensity (MAG). Furthermore the cometocentric distance relative to the electron exobase is seen to be a good organizing parameter for the measured plasma variations. The closer Rosetta is to this boundary, the more pulses are measured. This is consistent with the pulses being filaments of plasma originating from the diamagnetic cavity boundary as predicted by simulations
Rhetorical question.

But cheers for confirming the existence of cometary double layers.

Diamagnetic cavity idiocy when they are not double layers as he has been told many times.
A diamagnetic cavity is a volume where there is no magnetic field that have been detected inside comet coma..
A double layer is two layers of opposite charges that have never been detected at comets.

This is mainstream, textbook physics that is irrelevant to the insanity in the electric comet theory.

Well almost irrelevant - Sol88 once again emphasizes the insanity part of the electric comet theory which has no explanation of any data from 67P.

The lie/insult is even more obvious when the decades old fact that comets have gas and dust tails is textbook astronomy that any astronomer knows. This is an accusation that Michael A'Hearn was ignorant about textbook astronomy. This is an accusation that Michael A'Hearn was ignorant about the EPOXI mission for which he was the principal investigator!


If this was the first time that Sol88 cherry picked this paper, quote mined it and denied terminology that astronomers use about the dust in comets then it would be a mistake. But this has gone on for many months so it is an obvious lie/insult.

It takes a couple of minutes for anyone to confirm that A'Hearn knew that comets contained dust. has 337 abstracts from SAO/NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS) with 'Michael A'Hearn dust' !

For example:
Types of Outbursts From 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, as Seen by Alice: Gas, Dust, Ice, and Hybrid by Steffl, Andrew J.; A'Hearn, Michael F.; Bertaux, Jean-Loup; Feaga, Lori; Feldman, Paul; Keeney, Brian A.; Noonan, John; Parker, Joel; Stern, Alan; Weaver, Harold

Contract this to the term that astronomers sometimes use for cometary ices and dust - rock: 8 abstracts!
Mate! Snap with it.

This is one of the last papers A’Hearn wrote before his death in 2017. He was trying, as best he could, to understand COMETS within the confines and boundaries of Whipple’s conglomeration and sublimation model by one of the more eminent scientists before him.

Though before his death and in his last paper he states,
Quote:
At the simplest level, a very basic question is whether comets are mostly ice or mostly rock/dirt/refractory material. Whipple’s model of the dirty snowball, the first quantitative model, envisioned cometary nuclei as mostly ice, although our understanding has been evolving more toward mostly rock, particularly for 67P/C-G for which refractory/volatile ratios as high as 6 have been cited.
My bolding.

Now I’m pretty sure ‘ol mate was cluey enough, from his previous papers, that he knew ice and dust within the context of the first quantitative model of comets proposed by Whipple.

Before his passing, A’Hearns understanding, and “ours” had been evolving towards mostly ROCK.

Now any layperson (me) or indeed highly intelligent scientists or academics would assume A’Hearn referred to rock, as if in terrestrial type rock when he said rock.

But you and jd116 keep referring to rock as dust?

A’Hearn knew what dust was and the real lie or insult would be to ‘ol mates scientific career that he would not know the difference between dust and rock.

So either you or jd116 pony up answer to why you think A’Hearn meant dust instead of rock, or, you accept comets are rock.

AND

Before you spit the dummy and blather on about bulk density, read AND understand, as it states in the title, the implications of the RSI data, bulk density and gas/dust ratio. A paper, that I’m sure A’Hearn would love to have read, calls all that that jazz into question.

The Nucleus of Comet 67P/ChuryumovGerasimenko - Part I: The Global View – nucleus mass, mass loss, porosity and implications

The RSI data was bang on, there’s is minimal “ice” and the DUST is pulverised ROCK!

EDM on the molecular scale, ionising rock and releasing dust, along with water vapour from clays and carbon dioxide/monoxide from carbonates. We see these ROCKS on asteroids.

Now the real homework for you reality check, is where are all these organics coming from?

Especially the “building blocks” of life.

That will keep you busy for awhiles.

Unless your keen on talking the real shintzel?

COMETARY DOUBLE LAYERS!!

A lie because I wrote that there is no evidence for cometary double layers. They are physically impossible thru turbulence in the coma. They are physically improbable thru the small size of the Debye length (10 meters for the solar wind, less for more dense plasma).

Inside The insanity behind the electric comet theory from 4th December 2017 is "imaginary double layers do magic". Sol88 has known since he made up his double layer fantasy that is his personal fantasy.

4 December 2017 Sol88: Lies about a paper being about his comet delusions (double layers). Dynamic molecular oxygen production in cometary comae does not mention double layers.

No paper has ever stated that comet coma have double layers.

As Sol88 knows, this is for known physical reasons - coma are too turbulent for DLs to form, the Debye length of coma should so small that any imaginary DLs would have no effects.

As he has been told many times: The RSI data, bulk density and gas/dust ratio agree with mainstream ices and dust comets.

Identifying the origin of the suprathermal electron populationdeliverscluestothephysicalmechanismbehin dtheir acceleration or heating in the collisionless coma. Two mechanisms have been discussed in literature thus far: (i) heating of electrons through wave particle interactions, such as the singing comet waves (understood as an ion Weibel instability [43,52]) or lower hybrid waves [45], and (ii) the acceleration of electrons along the ambipolar electric field [29]. In the second scenario, solar wind electrons traveling toward the comet fall into the potential well that is generated by the gradient in electron number density [53,54]. Electrons born inside, i.e., the cometary electrons, are trapped unless they carry enough energy to escape. The potential scales as the electron thermal energy [29]; hence, only suprathermal electrons will be able to escape the nearcomet environment. Note that this interpretation is valid on subion time scales only, as quasineutrality will act such that electrons must eventually leave the potential well. Without ruling out the influence of wave particle interactions, our simulation favors the ambipolar electric field model, though this maynotbethecaseatotheractivityphasesofthecomet.

How the actual **** is this still going? Seriously, can the mods put this nonsense out of its misery?

Great some fresh air.

As I’ve not seen you post before welcome.

What’s your take on
Quote:
(c) Whatarecometsmadeof? At the simplest level, a very basic question is whether comets are mostly ice or mostly rock/dirt/refractory material. Whipple’s [2] model of the dirty snowball, the first quantitative model, envisioned cometary nuclei as mostly ice, although our understanding has been evolving more toward mostly rock, particularly for 67P/C-G for which refractory/volatile ratios as high as 6 have been cited [3,4].

Very basic question.

Are comets mostly ice or mostly rock?

A’Hearn says our understanding has been evolving toward mostly rock.

But jd116 and reality check seem to contradict A’Hearn and say the rock is actually just dust.


They will not admit comets are mostly vacuum (85% porosity) with “dust” @2600 kg/m³ with very little to no ice.

The Nucleus of Comet 67P/ChuryumovGerasimenko - Part I: The Global View – nucleus mass, mass loss, porosity and implications


So, I assume you can read and understand a peer reviewed paper?


Are comets, at the very basic level mostly ice as per Whipple’s model or has OUR understanding been evolving toward mostly rock.

Just spinning the wheels until part two.

How’s your understanding of plasma physics and MHD, Jond?

BecUse the other thing the electric comet needs is charge separation of the solar wind plasma.

This is seen and mentioned in this paper.

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

The scale is 1500km computational domain.

You may see the electrons and ions seperate setting up an electric field, an ambipolar electric field or more correctly a double layer.

Another bunch of lies. Not sure how you keep getting away with it.

No rock ever detected at comets;

Thousands of tonnes of ice excavated from the top few dozen meters at Tempel 1. And floating around Hartley 2.

Quit the lying, and start backing up your assertions with some actual science.

Lying about his own woo, now! This is pathetic. You need rock. There isn't any. You need EDM (lol). There isn't any. You need electric discharges. There aren't any. Ergo, complete failure. And there is no double layer. Stop lying.

Yep. You are continually shown to be a liar. You have a problem with that?

The RSI data shows that the electric comet theory is insane by confirming has the last 70 years of data of comets not having the density of rocks.

Usual ices in quotes lie when ices have been detected as he has been told many times and has acknowledged many times by citing ices and dust comet papers..
A "minimal ice" lie about the electric comet theory whose insanity includes comet having no ices. Sometimes we see weaseling out of this with "little" ices. Comets have at least 16% ices (67P) which is not "little".
A dust = pulverized rock delusion when the returned dust we have is not pulverized rock.

As he has been told many times, the insanity of the electric comet theory includes physical impossible EDM on massive scales.

The authors of the electric comet theory have the delusion that EDM is possible on comets. The authors of the electric comet theory use that delusion modify the surfaces of comets. Comets are tens of kilometers in sizes !

Ignorant releasing dust etc. by a physical impossible EDM delusion.

As he has been told many times, images do not tell us the composition of asteroids or comets so we so not see clays or carbonates on asteroids.

As he has been told hundreds of times, mainstream ices and dust comets are irrelevant to the insanity in the electric comet theory.

A lying question because the article he cites states how the building blocks of life found on 67P were formed.
Building Blocks of Life Found in Comet's Atmosphere (2016)
Quote:
For the first time, scientists have directly detected a crucial amino acid and a rich selection of organic molecules in the dusty atmosphere of a comet, further bolstering the hypothesis that these icy objects delivered some of life's ingredients to Earth.
...
The glycine probably didn't form on the comet itself, Altwegg said, but rather in the broad stretches of dust and debris that made up the solar system before planetary bodies formed.

    Electric discharges between planets dong that blasting insanity.
    EDM insanity.
    Comet jets being electrical discharges insanity.
    Insanity of 14 year old lies about Deep Impact as if the authors cannot read and understand science or English.
    No cometary double layers insanity from the authors that I can recall.
  • As he has been told many times: It is physically impossible for there to be cometary double layers.
    A delusion that data from 1 comet showed double layers but that was changes in voltage over scales of many kilometers when the Debye length would be ~10 meters (DL's of maybe ~100 meters in scale).
    A plasma physicist studying comets (tusenfem) stated that comet coma were too turbulent for double layers to form.
    Take 5 minutes to search the scientific literature and there are no cometary double layers papers.
If the authors are so deluded as to have cometary double layers, Sol88 can give us a citation.

We know that 2 comets are mostly dust with 20-50% water in the Deep impact ejecta and a dust/ices ratio of 6 for 67P.

I have been stating there is charge separation for several years as in my recent posts. Plasma with ions and electrons (charge separation) does not magically create double layers.
