Thumbs down A "electric field centred on the rocky nucleus" lie

17 October 2018: A "electric field centred on the rocky nucleus" lie and usual derail form his electric comet inanity
This is the stupidity of trying to fool everyone that he has finally realized that comets are not made of actual rock. 9 years of history says otherwise.

There is no evidence of an electric field centered on any comet nucleus. There are the measured electric fields inside comet coma generally from the interaction of the solar wind with the gas from sublimating ices on the nucleus. There is proposed electrostatic electric fields over the surface of comes only at low activity far from the Sun. These shift dust and ice grains across the surface and lift them above the surface.

Nothing to do with Sol88's electric comet insanity:
Sol88's comet delusions include comets are rocks; these rocks were blasted from the Earth including recently; blasting was by electrical discharges between Earth and Venus; an imaginary solar electric field charges up comets; the charge causes never detected electrical discharges; comet jets are electrical discharges; images show that comets are rocks; Birkeland currents in comets and their tails with no appropriate magnetic field; papers using bedrock to describe layers of ices support his comet are rock delusion, imaginary double layers do magic; many years of lying that ices have not been detected on comets, a "hard shell of refractory +material on the outside" lie, insanity of consolidated ices and dust in papers being rock, an insane spate of lies about ices and dust papers.
Totally inane delusions about charge separation doing magic. Stupidly thinks that a ambipolar electric field is a double layer.
Insanity of dust removal from the surface changing measured comet density
Electrical discharge machining insanity.
A repeated insane insult of Michael A’Hearn.

Thumbs down INsane lies about "rock" on comes to derail from his electric comet insanity

17 October 2018: Insane lies and stupidity about "rock" on comes to derail from his electric comet insanity.

He knows that the ices and dust of comets is not "Hard like rock" because we have the results of Deep Impact.
Today:
jonesdave116: Then go and look for an online crater calculator, and see how big the crater would be in rock, for an object of ~ 370 kg, and an impact speed of ~ 10 km/s.
However:
Over 3 years of the 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.

He knows that the ices and dust of comets is not "Hard like rock" because the MUPUS results are "hard like sintered ices and dust".

He knows how insane writing "looks like rock" is about astronomical images, especially comets made of ices and dust. We have asteroid images that look like fluffy snowballs but no one is insane enough to call asteroid actual fluffy snowballs ! The appearance of asteroids and comets in images says little about their composition. They give information about their surface topography.

And counting....
