Sol88's insanity of exposing his abysmal ignorance of astronomy (and even Google or Wikipedia!) to derail from his demented cult's electric comet insanity.

The Ulysses mission encountered three comet tails. The crossing of the tail of comet C/2006 P1 showed an "obstruction" of the solar wind: "measured solar wind velocity dropping from approximately 700 kilometers per second (1,566,000 mph) to less than 400 kilometers per second (895,000 mph).[14]"
So that's a yes to,
Quote:
Does the comets tail act as an obstacle to the solar wind?

Quote:
The presence of a coherent structure so far from the nucleus suggests that the plasma tails of comets may persist as discrete entities for many astronomical units. As the tail of Hyakutake persisted to Ulysses, it is likely that this structure, ultimately produced by an object only,2.4 km across, survived to reach the edge of the heliosphere.
That's quite large!

For the first time, astronomers catch asteroid in the act of changing color

Quote:
Marsset and his colleagues have also confirmed that the asteroid is rocky—proof that the asteroid's tail, though seemingly comet-like, is caused by an entirely different mechanism, as comets are not rocky but more like loose snowballs of ice and dust.
Classic!

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

Sol88's lies about the demented SAFIRE experiment about the Sun and a scientific experiment about the solar wind and Parker spiral

Sol88 insanity about an asteroid in a thread about his demented cult's electric comet insanity.

Sol88's persistent insanity of emphasizing the insanity in his demented cult's electric comet insanity ! If the few asteroids with comet-like behavior were electric comets ten in there demented minds there has to be 100,000's of theses electric comets and they do not exist!

Sol88's persistent insane insults of the deceased Michael Francis A'Hearn. No one with 2 brain cells would state that an asteroid that is denser than water and thus rocky is a comet that is less dense than water and thus ices and dust.

Sol88's persistent demented lies about a obsession with 1 quote from Michael Francis A'Hearn who has hundred od papers on ices and dust comets! A'Hearn was writing about ices and dust comets, not asteroids.

For the first time, astronomers catch asteroid in the act of changing color
Quote:
Last December, scientists discovered an "active" asteroid within the asteroid belt, sandwiched between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter. The space rock, designated by astronomers as 6478 Gault, appeared to be leaving two trails of dust in its wake—active behavior that is associated with comets but rarely seen in asteroids.
...
Marsset and his colleagues have also confirmed that the asteroid is rocky—proof that the asteroid's tail, though seemingly comet-like, is caused by an entirely different mechanism, as comets are not rocky but more like loose snowballs of ice and dust.

"It's the first time to my knowledge that we see a rocky body emitting dust, a little bit like a comet," Marsset says. "It means that probably some mechanism responsible for dust emission is different from comets, and different from most other active main-belt asteroids."
...
"We know of about a million bodies between Mars and Jupiter, and maybe about 20 that are active in the asteroid belt," Marsset says. "So this is very rare."
The article is partially wrong. This is not behavior that is associated with comets which have an ion tail and a dust tail, not 2 dust tails.

The cited observation is consistent with the asteroid being formed in the early Solar System.

The scientists say they are likely seeing the asteroid's surface dust, turned red over millions of years of exposure to the sun, being ejected into space, revealing a fresh, less irradiated surface beneath, that appears blue at near-infrared wavelengths.

The Sun is not a metal ball with an externally powered magnetic field !

An insane description with "energy production; transmutation/creation of elements; remediation of radioactive materials". The SAFIRE project is a metal ball surrounded by plasma. This is basically chemistry with no fission or fusion.
  • It will produce less energy than it consumes.
    There may be chemical reactions producing energy.
  • There will be no transmutation/creation of elements.
  • There will be no radioactive materials other than what they already have introduced.
Insanity of "science by presentation at a crank (Electric Universe) conference". This project has been running for over 5 years and has not produced a single scientific paper in a scientific journal relating to their literally insane delusion that the Sun is not powered by nuclear fusion at its core.

If you actually view the first few minutes of the video, SDG, you will see standard plasma physics mixed with some lies and delusions, e.g. several double layer delusions.
  1. The "factors they control" are standard factors in plasma experiments.
  2. We have been producing plasmas in labs with energy densities analogous to (or exceeding) plasma in the solar atmosphere for many decades!
    Nuclear fusion reactor research tries to duplicate the energy densities in the solar core.
  3. A delusion that there are "stable self-organizing double layers" in the turbulent solar atmosphere.
  4. Finding "trapping of ions, electrons and molecules" in double layers is irrelevant to stars and possible a lie.
  5. A lie of "stellar tufts" existing.
    The Sun has granulation on its surface from convection cells being exposed on its surface.
  6. A delusion that "all the evidence suggests electricity is the primal force in the universe".
    All the evidence we have suggests that gravity is the "primal" force in the universe.
At about 2 minutes we get into stuff about people preparing for the crank conference. That is about as much stupidity that I could take.

This is a fun object: The Case of the Sun-Diving Asteroid that Thinks It's a Comet.

It is all rock, it goes close to the Sun, but it has no cometary activity. It doesn't look too good for the Electric Comet theory

Comets are mostly rock.

So that piece actually reinforces the electric comets...comets are rocky objects.

Lol. No it does not. Unless one is severely limited in the comprehension department! No rock ever found on a comet.

Back in the real world;

Cometary compositions compared with protoplanetary disk midplane chemical evolution. An emerging chemical evolution taxonomy for comets
Eistrup, C. et al.
https://arxiv.org/abs/1907.11255

Quote:
With a growing number of molecules observed in many comets, and an improved understanding of chemical evolution in protoplanetary disk midplanes, comparisons can be made between models and observations that could potentially constrain the formation histories of comets. A χ2-method was used to determine maximum likelihood surfaces for 14 different comets that formed at a given time (up to 8 Myr) and place (out to beyond the CO iceline) in the pre-solar nebula midplane. This was done using observed volatile abundances for the 14 comets and the evolution of volatile abundances from chemical modelling of disk midplanes. Considering all parent species (ten molecules) in a scenario that assumed reset initial chemistry, the χ2 likelihood surfaces show a characteristic trail in the parameter space with high likelihood of formation around 30 AU at early times and 12 AU at later times for ten comets. This trail roughly traces the vicinity of the CO iceline in time. The formation histories for all comets were thereby constrained to the vicinity of the CO iceline, assuming that the chemistry was partially reset early in the pre-solar nebula. This is found, both when considering carbon-, oxygen-, and sulphur-bearing molecules (ten in total), and when only considering carbon- and oxygen-bearing molecules (seven in total). Since these 14 comets did not previously fall into the same taxonomical categories together, this chemical constraint may be proposed as an alternative taxonomy for comets. Based on the most likely time for each of these comets to have formed during the disk chemical evolution, a formation time classification for the 14 comets is suggested.
CO iceline! Bloody cold out there. From memory that stuff has a sublimation temperature of ~ 35K.

Sol88's lies about the demented SAFIRE experiment about the Sun and a scientific experiment about the solar wind and Parker spiral

Sol88's usual insane lies.
  • An asteroid approaching the Sun and not being a comet is yet another debunking of his demented cult's electric comet insanity !
  • There is no evidence of Sol88's demented cult's rock on comets.
  • All of the physical evidence is that comets are ices and dust objects.
  • The Case of the Sun-Diving Asteroid that Thinks It's a Comet. explicitly states no cometary activity.
    Quote:
    What they found is really weird — or rather, what they didn't find. 322P was quiet. No of cometary activity, no fuzzy coma surrounding the nucleus, no tail, nothing, even though it was close enough to the Sun to show such features.
    ...
    The evidence was pointing in one direction: 322P/SOHO isn't a comet at all. It's an asteroid.

    That would explain a lot. No comet activity, spins too fast, too dense, on a periodic orbit instead of a singular death-dive… also, the colors of 322P measured via telescope were more like an asteroid, as was its reflectivity (what's called the albedo, how much light it reflects). Its size would be small for a comet, but typical for asteroids. And this would make it a record holder as the asteroid with the closest approach to the Sun known.

    So why was it ever classified as a comet? Well, when looking at the 3,000 objects discovered dive-bombing the Sun in SOHO observations, they're always comets. Except now we know it’s almost always.
  • Sol88's usual lies by quote mining stupidity
    Quote:
    Let me confuse you more: It's possible that 322P does emit material! Some asteroids do this when they get close to the Sun; it gets hot enough that even silicates can vaporize and form a dust cloud.
Summary: The article is that we thought 322P/SOHO was a comet because we had only seen comets grazing the Sun. The physical evidence from the latest observations is that 322P/SOHO is an asteroid - on a periodic orbit, no cometary activity at ~700 C, no coma, no tail, spinning so fast it has to be an asteroid with a density of at least 1 g/cc and colors that are more consistent with an asteroid.,

Sol88's usual insane lies.
  • An asteroid approaching the Sun and not being a comet is yet another debunking of his demented cult's electric comet insanity !
  • There is no evidence of Sol88's demented cult's rock on comets.
  • All of the physical evidence is that comets are ices and dust objects.
  • The Case of the Sun-Diving Asteroid that Thinks It's a Comet. explicitly states no cometary activity.
  • Sol88's usual lies by quote mining stupidity
Summary: The article is that we thought 322P/SOHO was a comet because we had only seen comets grazing the Sun. The physical evidence from the latest observations is that 322P/SOHO is an asteroid - on a periodic orbit, no cometary activity at ~700 C, no coma, no tail, spinning so fast it has to be an asteroid with a density of at least 1 g/cc and colors that are more consistent with an asteroid.,

From the press release
Quote:
Let me confuse you more: It's possible that 322P does emit material!
So it is a comet...


Bit it’s rocky and we know comets are mostly ice... but

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].
So the only confused ones are the Dirtysnowballers.

No confusion if comets are rock and plasma phenomena.

Sol88's persistent insanity about the Stardust mission which showed that cometary dust is material from the early solar system. The results of Stardust is year another debunk of Sol88's demented cult's electric comet dogma.

Sol88's usual insane lies about posts. jonesdave116 wrote about ices, not the dust grains collected by Stardust.

And it isn't a comet. End of story. There is no confusion except with you. This is not surprising to anybody.

Thought so...

Little bit from here some gas from there mix well at different distances from the sun, you have a comet.




Whooo boy.

Flash heated by the sun? Or flash heated by electric arcs? (Reality Checks nebular lightning)

Complete gibberish. Got any science for a change? Thought not. Tell us - what do you think happens to CO and O2 and N2 ices at the temperatures where refractory materials form?

Could be a comet too, says the article. So I’m not sure why you’d bring it up in defence of the Dirtysnowball???

It’s not your “classic” comet as mostly ice then is it? Must be one of these mostly rock comets from its density.

Nope. It isn't any sort of comet. It is an asteroid. A rock. Simple.

Ummmm.....plasma

Ahhh, I can see where you make your biggest assumption, Nebular hypothesis.

Imagine for a sec that the nebular hypothesis may be incomplete or incorrect.

So I can’t answer your fantasy question except with a fantasy answer and I can’t come up with something as clever as the Grand tack hypothesis or the Nice model.

It all charged matter in the Electric Universe.

So no ice but rock, still a comet or was that an asteroid

Nebular lightning was a mainstream theory about the formation of chondrules in the early solar system. It is biased on real physics in the real universe.
This is not Sol88''s demented cult's dogma on how stellar systems form (ignorant delusions about Birkeland currents, plasma pinches, etc.). This is not Sol88's demented cult's electric comet dogma.

What the article actually says is that this is an asteroid at temperatures of ~700 C , silicates evaporate at these temperatures, and so there is the possibility of dust emission. We have seen some other asteroids do that when they near the Sun.

More gibberish. What happens to those ices at high temperature? It is not rocket science. Why can't you answer? Because it involves admitting that your woo is dead. Has been for years.

Assumption? When we can see these things in the process of forming stars and planets? Hardly. And it's not as if you have an alternative explanation, is it? Not a scientific one, anyway.

Sol88's lies about the demented SAFIRE experiment about the Sun and a scientific experiment about the solar wind and Parker spiral

Sol88's usual lies about astronomy.
Nebular hypothesis is not an assumption. It is a scientific theory based on the real universe. The Grand tack hypothesis and the Nice model are scientific models about the evolution of the Solar System based on the real universe.

Sol88's usual lies about posts.Tell us - what do you think happens to CO and O2 and N2 at the temperatures where refractory materials form? is a rational question.

Sol88's demented cult has the delusional dogma of everything being electric as this thread shows clearly. The fact that everything is neutral on large scales tells any one with two brain cells that his cult dogma is insane.
