Thumbs down The usual lies, delusions, insults, etc. already addressed over the last 10 years

The insane insults of the deceased Michael Francis A'Hearn by Sol88 linking him with demented dogma, etc.
Sol88's lies about the demented SAFIRE experiment about the Sun and a scientific experiment about the solar wind and Parker spiral
Yet more propaganda from the Thunderbolts cult on the insane SAFIRE project.
That conversation with Monty exposed that the already insane SAFIRE project is even more insane than collapsing the Sun to a white dwarf

Sol88's insanely admits that he knows nothing as if that were a surprise given his insane support of a demented cult over more than 10 years juts in this thread !
Or maybe his usual insane insults of everyone.

Plasma has been explained to Sol88 many times over the last 10 or more years but he is too interested in drinking his cult's poison to understand that plasma is a partially ionized gas that is quasi-neutral. !

Sol88's usual insanity of citing textbook physics and then blatantly lying about it. Sol88's persistent insane denial of the properties of plasma.

Sir Arthur Stanley Eddington
Quote:
Around 1920, he anticipated the discovery and mechanism of nuclear fusion processes in stars, in his paper "The Internal Constitution of the Stars".[3][4] At that time, the source of stellar energy was a complete mystery; Eddington was the first to correctly speculate that the source was fusion of hydrogen into helium.
...
Eddington also investigated the interior of stars through theory, and developed the first true understanding of stellar processes. He began this in 1916 with investigations of possible physical explanations for Cepheid variable stars. He began by extending Karl Schwarzschild's earlier work on radiation pressure in Emden polytropic models. These models treated a star as a sphere of gas held up against gravity by internal thermal pressure, and one of Eddington's chief additions was to show that radiation pressure was necessary to prevent collapse of the sphere. He developed his model despite knowingly lacking firm foundations for understanding opacity and energy generation in the stellar interior. However, his results allowed for calculation of temperature, density and pressure at all points inside a star (thermodynamic anisotropy), and Eddington argued that his theory was so useful for further astrophysical investigation that it should be retained despite not being based on completely accepted physics. James Jeans contributed the important suggestion that stellar matter would certainly be ionized, but that was the end of any collaboration between the pair, who became famous for their lively debates.

Eddington defended his method by pointing to the utility of his results, particularly his important mass-luminosity relation. This had the unexpected result of showing that virtually all stars, including giants and dwarfs, behaved as ideal gases. In the process of developing his stellar models, he sought to overturn current thinking about the sources of stellar energy. Jeans and others defended the Kelvin–Helmholtz mechanism, which was based on classical mechanics, while Eddington speculated broadly about the qualitative and quantitative consequences of possible proton-electron annihilation and nuclear fusion processes.
My emphasis added to show Sol88's usual insanity of lying about textbook physics !
The logic is simple - if you treat stars as an ideal gas and get results that match real stars then treating stars as an ideal gas is valid. Today we have the additional match to real stars of the treatment giving the core conditions that has to produce fusion matching the fusion that we detect.


N.B. The properties of plasma were possibly established after Eddington wrote his 1920 book.

But as long as the kiddies understand about hot gas.

I don’t think the SAFIRE team have much to say on 1920 models, not with new experiments and data

Lol. They are as competent at plasma physics as you are at English grammar! 'Should of'? I mean, seriously? Get an education you wazzock. 'Should have'. 'Should've'. Either will do. However, a well educated 12 year old knows that 'should of' is just a sign of somebody who has never had a proper education. Learn English. Learn science. When you have done that - get back to us. Otherwise............
