  Aug 10, 2017 “Unknown by means of the more unknown”. Old minds are like old horses; you must exercise them if you wish to keep them in working order. — John Adams theory presupposes that Earth and the Solar

Aug 9, 2017 Astronomical theories would benefit from an understanding of plasma-state matter. Winston Bostick is a pioneer of theories, although he did not identify with those ideas by name. He is particularly noted for plasmoid experiments that led to

Matter, Charge and Conjecture (The Thunderbolts Project ™)

  Aug 8, 2017 Electricians know the electric force is 39 orders of magnitude stronger than gravity, and the graviticians know the gravitational force is 40 orders of magnitude stronger than electricity. This misses the point. On the purely mathematical

Truth or Fashion (The Thunderbolts Project ™)

Aug 7, 2017 If currently fashionable theories are Ultimate Truth (or at least smart ideas) and myth was stupid superstition, where is the dividing line? Was Ptolemy stupid and Newton smart? But General Relativity is not just an improved version

  Aug 4, 2017 Is the Universe expanding? “As a general scientific principle, it is undesirable to depend crucially on what is unobservable to explain what is observable, as happens frequently in Big Bang cosmology.” — Halton Arp theory states

  Aug 3, 2017 Electricity in space explains anomalous energy curves. Cosmologists often find it difficult to reconcile theory with observation. So-called “gamma-ray bursts” (GRB) are a case in point. GRBs were discovered first in galaxies with high redshift—some seeming

Gigantic Jets (The Thunderbolts Project ™)

Aug 2, 2017 Lightning-like electric discharges occur above the clouds. Capacitors accumulate and store electric charge in two conductive plates separated by a dielectric insulator. Charge on one plate attracts opposite charge to the other, creating an electric field that
