Yawn!

THERE ARE NO ELECTRIC FIELDS IN SPACE!!!







No electric fields needed or wanted for the dirtysnowball sublimation model to work Pffft...

Twelve years with no predictive model! Twelve years with no supporting evidence! Twelve years with no mainstream converts! Pathetic really! Sol88, if you can't convince a mainstream scientist like me that your electric comet has utility and research potential, your model will never grow beyond these forum walls? Seriously! When can we expect a properly peer-reviewed 'electric comet' paper in A&A or MNRAS or ...? What? No cojones? Not a surprize! Best not to expose your electric comet to peer-review! Obviously there is nothing there that is worthy of mainstream's time and attention! Question for you 'ec' expert -- How many people think your 'electric comet' is part of a scam?

And it only gets harder from here!

As I've stated previously, mainstream science cannot be used to describe your electric comet! Why? Your electric comet violates fundamental laws of physics, and ignores decades of observational evidence! Your electric comet is PHYSICALLY IMPOSSIBLE! Unless you and your 'eu/es/ec' buddies develope new physics, your electric comet will only be modelled using myth and magic! That is not science! Again, there is ABSOLUTELY NO MAINSTREAM SCIENCE that can help you model your electric rock! If YOUR electric comet did not violate fundamental laws of physics, then MY mainstream physics would be applicable ... and progress would have been made already!

For decades, there's been no scientific progress on your electric comet because your electric comet is not science! Now, why is that so hard to comprehend?

Sol88! Your electric comet is an abject FAILURE! Where's the scientific evidence mainstream science needs to move this idea forward? Chop! Chop! Let's go!

Do you ever take the time to think about the bigger picture and your lasting legacy? Do you ever take the time to ask yourself the fundamental 'philosophical' questions,

Could everything I believe about the electric comet be wrong?
Could everything I believe about the electric star be wrong?
Could everything I believe about the electric universe be wrong?

The reason I use the word 'believe' is that YOU have shown no sign of 'knowing or understanding' your own electric comet model, or the mainstream physics, chemistry, and observational data that consistently and continuously refutes every aspect of your fantasy!

Would you like to try again? After all, Part IV of your useless, delusional ISF thread should be the charm, right?

AS THE 'electric comet' EXPERT, YOU HAVE PUT ON A PATHETIC SHOW, Sol88! Where's your evidence?

How about we refresh everyone's memory regarding your ongoing failures to address fundamental flaws with YOUR electric comet model ...! Because YOU claim to understand the electric comet, I'll ask all the questions! As the resident 'ec' expert, you must answer all my questions! Fair? This is, after all your 'electric comet' thread! I still don't know why we have to keep reminding you of this fact!

First, my original 20 informational 'Yes/No' questions ...

In your opinion / To your knowledge ...

01) Could any principles or physics of the electric comet be WRONG?
02) Could any principles or physics of the electric star be WRONG?
03) Could any principles or physics of the electric universe be WRONG?
04) Could every principle of the electric universe be WRONG?
05) Does gravity play any part in orbital mechanics? *1*
06) Does gravity play any part in star formation processes?
07) Does electrostatics/electrodynamics play any part in orbital mechanics?
08) Does electrostatics/electrodynamics play any part in star formation processes?
09) Are stars powered by nuclear fusion occuring in the core?
10) Are stars powered by nuclear fusion occuring on the surface?
11) Are asteroids made of rock?
12) Are asteroids made of volatile ices and dusts?
13) Are comets made of rock?
14) Are comets made of volatile ices and dusts?
15) Is sublimation (i.e., a state change from solid to gas) a real physical process?
16) Is eccentricity important to comet charging and discharging processes? *2*
17) Is electric discharge machining responsible for terrestrial geomorphology (e.g., the Grand Canyon)?
18) Does a magnetic field always indicate the presence of a current?
19) Do you know where the water ice line is for our star at this point in its life cycle?
20) Do you know what a sedimentary tidal rhythmite is?

*1* I believe you have inadvertantly answered this question in the affirmative. Gravity does play a role in orbital mechanics! I wonder if gravity might also be more important than electrostatics/electrodynamics by several orders of magnitude?
*2* Absolutely NOT! NO VIABLE PHYSICAL MECHANISM OR PREDICTIVE MODEL HAS EVER BEEN PROPOSED BY THE 'ec' COMMUNITY TO PROVE THIS CLAIM! The concept is truly laughable! The concept is part of an ongoing series of epic FAILURES!

Do you remember ignoring this fundamental 'ec' modelling requirement?

Using electrostatics, electrodynamics, and orbital mechanics, show how eccentricity is responsible for the charging and discharging of your electric comet!

In case it was not obvious, eccentricity has nothing to do with your electric comet!

Restated: The idea that eccentricity is, in any way, responsible for the charging and discharging of electric rocks is obviously WRONG! Thus, Sol88 is WRONG! Wally is WRONG! Donny is WRONG! Shall I go on?

Do you recall the table of 'randomly selected' orbital data required to PREDICT electric comet charging and discharging behaviour? This is but one of a thousand glaring FAILURES on your part! All your spouting about plasma physics is meaningless until you have resolved all the outstanding foundational issues associated with your electric comet! By the way, what are your plasma physics credentials anyway? You have a PhD from where? Sol88, your displayed knowledge and understanding of plasma physics is laughable and 'always' WRONG! Everyone that reads this thread will come to the conclusion that Sol88 is WRONG!

For your 'ec' expert consideration! Please note, this table has been expanded by five records to further illustrate that ECCENTRICITY PLAYS ABSOLUTELY NO ROLE IN THE BEHAVIOUR OF YOUR electric rock!

Columns: a = Semi-major axis (AU), e = Eccentricity, i = Inclination, q = Perihelion (AU), Q = Apihelion (AU). All data extracted from the JPL SBDB. Please note, the tabulated data, above, is a trivial subset of a greater whole. Furthermore, two of six cometary bodies are classified as JFC's, three of six are ETC's, and one is an HTC. Can you identify which of the three families the six listed comets belong to, and why? What does your 'ec' model say about comet families? Has the 'ec' community ever discussed comet families?

So, Sol88, what's WRONG with your electric comet? Everyone that reads this will KNOW that eccentricity plays no role in your 'ec' model! That means that you, Sol88, are obviously WRONG! Again!

You know, ... it's OK to admit that you are clueless, Sol88! Unfortunately, religions are NEVER WRONG! Sol88, your 'eu/es/ec' religion appears to have ALL the answers, yet cannot show me, in mathematical terms, how eccentricity is important in electric rock behaviour! SCIENCE FAILURE! And religious success!

Comets are made of volatile ices and dust! The volatile ices sublimate when insolated! FACT!

The data in the above table is sufficient proof that eccentricity is not involved in the charging and discharging of electric rocks! A list of 18 objects --- with eccentricities ranging from 0.1539 to 0.9671! Only six are deemed to be comets! Why? Because comets are made of volatile ices and dust with the ices being sufficiently close to the surface to allow sublimation when insolated! That's a fact!

It's your model, Sol88! You fix it! And forget about plasmas! You have a thousand much more fundamental problems to resolve before we can start talking about your pathetic lack of knowledge and skills when dealing with plasmas! Remember, you still have an unresolved density problem! And I've so many more unanswerable questions just for you!

Remember, Sol88, the internet never forgets ... ANYTHING! In twelve years now, you have FAILED to provide any tangible evidence to support your religious delusion that you try to pass off as science! Truly LAUGHABLE! Sadly PATHETIC! By the way, how are your two kids? As a parent, I do hope you've allowed them to pursue their own religious fantasies and adventures without drawing them into your steaming, 'electric excrement' soaked mess!

Oh! And FYI! MHD is still a valid modelling tool when dealing with specific plasma structures around comets! If you understance vector calculus, we can discuss several ways in which kinetic models can fail around comets!

Sol88! You cannot ignore me! And you cannot win!
Oh dear an institutionalized science crusader...

Gibberish and lies to derail from his electric comet insanity.

Physics is being violated by the electric comet insanity.

MHD is not that plasma conducts and electric discharges require the breakdown of an insulating medium.

An insanely big red lie by quote mining a joke from tusenfem.

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.

After the event, the Thunderbolts crew was scurrying to find reliable data on the timing of the flare, to see if it actually began microseconds before the impact. Thornhill had predicted an advance flash following the intensity curve of lightning. Whether the cameras will answer the latter question is uncertain, but it appears that a flare did indeed precede the main flash. Pete Schultz of Brown University, suggested that the first flare "indicates a layered structure for the comet.… My guess is there was soft layering on top, [the impactor] went down, and finally got in contact with ices."

Obligatory guesses of this sort can only add to the exasperation of the electrical theorists. The comet was approaching the impactor at 23,000 miles per hour. A soft surface layer, which various guesses have put at perhaps ten feet or so, would have no measurable effect on the timing of an impact flare, and it would not separate a flare into two phases as appears to have occurred.

Yup predicted it, saw it!

Lying about the universe and "statndard plasma laws" to derail from his electric comet insanity.
The universe is less than 5% plasma.
The amount of plasma does not make plasma laws magically dominate the universe.
A standard plasma law is that plasmas are quasi-neutral . The Debye length is a scale above which plasma acts as neutral gas.
The EM force is not always "39 orders of magnitude than gravity". The EM force between two neutral, massive objects is zero, while gravity is non-zero !

A lie that the mainstream does not know the ratio of ices and dust on comets when we have at least 2 measurements.

A "our understanding" lie when it is astronomers being referred to, not the deluded Thunderbolts cult or its followers.

It is a physical fact that plasma conducts, i.e. is not an insulator . MHD has been treating plasma as a non-perfect conductor for decades. Ideal MHD is used for the cases of plasma that has "so little resistivity that it can be treated as a perfect conductor".

So to repeate, comets are not rock and electric fields can not exist in space!

According to the sharpest tools here.


bugger, almost forgot 67p is also a contact binary!


This is what happens when squishing your lumps of ice and dust together!

This ice and dust WE KNOW is left over from the the collapse of the solar nebula.

Some of this dust formed around the central star and then, somehow, ended up mixing with ice to form...comets!

When this mixture of ICE and dust gets close enough to the Sun, some of the ice sublimates and form the coma and tail.

That's the bedtime story told by astronomers world wide!



Quote:
(c) What are comets made of?

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].

Nevertheless, there is still considerable uncertainty about even this
basic parameter, not least of which is that most measurements are subject to selection effects in
removing refractories from the nucleus to the coma, where they are observed as dust.

So, sol, are you now claiming that outside of MHD plasmas are non-conducting dielectrics?
Would be nice to see your calculations about how charge is building up around a comet and then suddenly discharges, without actually setting of a huge signal in the RPC package.

So, just dumping two equations is not going to get you far, if you do not understand the basics of physics.

No ya dropper!

Plasma's are NOT perfect conductors!

Kinetic plasma not fluid plasma!

We've been here already have we not?

So how does gravity work Tusenfem?

Still working on that's why mainstream think the comets bulk density is less than what it's made out of especially since our understanding is evolving toward mainly rock!

You are too shy to answer any REAL questions as the resident SUPER DUPER SPACE PLASMA PHYSICIST, tusenfem?

Why?

Do you feel threatened?

https://www.aanda.org/articles/aa/ab...a32353-17.html

Whats a dynamo system with electromagnetic generators and loads? Sound VERY electric comet to this little black duck!

Quote:
Results. We find that a shock-like structure is formed upstream of the comet and acts as an electromagnetic generator, similar to the bow shock at Earth that slows down the solar wind. The Poynting flux transports electromagnetic energy toward the inner coma, where newly born cometary ions are accelerated. Upstream of the shock-like structure, we find local energy transfer from solar wind ions to cometary ions. We show that mass loading can be a local process with a direct transfer of energy, but also part of a dynamo system with electromagnetic generators and loads.
You can add the electrified dusty plasma that extends from the surface of the comet all the way to ....... no one knows but it's fkn big!


It is most definitely NOT sublimating iceballs!

And prithee, what shalt the conductivity of "kinetic" plasmas be?

You hopefully do know that there is no such thing as a "kinetic" or a "fluid" plasma. These are two ways of numerically, that is in computer simulations, to deal with the development of plasmas. So it is the "fluid" or "kinetic" approach, the plasma is just plasma.

Ic cannot sound like an electric comet, because there is no electric comet model to check it with, so fail there.

If that is what you got from Jesper's paper, one has to say "the confusion works deeply in this one" as it has absolutely, but really absolutely nothing to do with whether or not the nucleus of a comet is a "sublimating ice ball". There is a source term in the simulations and that is that. Jesper makes NO claims at all, about what the nucleus is composed of.

Which is an extremely dumb thing to say, given we see the ice and we see the vapour. Really dumb. Figured out the answers to indagator's questions yet? Or just going to keep avoiding them, because the answers mess up your religion?

The ELECTRIC COMET is a rock in part of a circuit.

This circuit consists of standard lab testable plasma structures commonly found in larger circuits.

Such as Saturn or Jupiter for instance .

Nope, no rock, no circuit. And why aren't asteroids in a 'circuit'? Hmmmm? About time we had an answer to this, n'est-ce pas?

Not real rock but our understanding is evolving towards mainly rock. It’s just that some people’s understanding is not evolving as fast.

Nope, you cannot evolve towards something that is not detected. A'Hearn was talking about refractory dust. There is no rock, there were no discharges. End of story.

Which has nothing to do with rock. Take a shed load of it, put it in a furnace, melt it, let it cool, and you'll get a rock. That has not happened to this dust. It is individual grains. It cannot have been blasted off a planet by a dirty great lightning bolt. Ergo, the electric comet doesn't even get past first base.
Asteroids are rock. They don't behave like comets. Why not?
