URGENT: PLEASE READ THIS. The video presented here is still in development. For the present listing of credits (being developed simultaneously with extensive scientific review), see our credits page:
We believe that this critical analysis of textbook comet theory can have a major impact on human understanding of these remarkable bodies. It can also reach well beyond the specialized science of comets to provoke a reconsideration of the Sun, planetary history, and a good deal more. We live in an Electric Universe, and the enigmatic behavior of comets provides unique insights into the role of charged particles and electrified plasma throughout the Cosmos.
We ask for your help in inviting scientists and other centers of influence to consider the factual content in this film. For the next 60-90 days we will consider all critical suggestions prior to final editing, and we’ll be especially diligent in addressing any statements of fact that a knowledgeable viewer may call into question. Our conviction is that essential facts, now confirmed by leading investigators, will not allow the institutions of science to hold onto theories that, for too long, have been proclaimed as established science.

EARTH-DIRECTED ERUPTION: A magnetic filament snaking down the middle of the solar disk erupted on Aug. 15th at approximately 1700 UT. Quick-look data suggest that the blast hurled a CME toward Earth. If so, the cloud would probably arrive on or about Aug. 18th. Stay tuned for updates.

NASA’s Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array (NuSTAR) has captured an extreme and rare event in the regions immediately surrounding a
A compact source of X-rays that sits near the black hole, called the corona, has moved closer to the black hole over a period of just days.
“The corona recently collapsed in toward the black hole, with the result that the black hole’s intense gravity pulled all the light down onto its surrounding disk, where material is spiraling inward,” said Michael Parker of the Institute of Astronomy in Cambridge, United Kingdom, lead author of a new paper on the findings appearing in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society.
As the corona shifted closer to the black hole, the gravity of the black hole exerted a stronger tug on the X-rays emitted by it. The result was an extreme blurring and stretching of the X-ray light. Such events had been observed previously, but never to this degree and in such detail.
Supermassive black holes are thought to reside in the centers of all galaxies. Some are more massive and rotate faster than others. The black hole in this new study, referred to as Markarian 335, or Mrk 335, is about 324 million light-years from Earth in the direction of the Pegasus constellation. It is one of the most extreme of the systems for which the mass and spin rate have ever been measured. The black hole squeezes about 10 million times the mass of our sun into a region only 30 times the diameter of the sun, and it spins so rapidly that space and time are dragged around with it.
Even though some light falls into a supermassive black hole never to be seen again, other high-energy light emanates from both the corona and the surrounding accretion disk of superheated material. Though astronomers are uncertain of the shape and temperature of coronas, they know that they contain particles that move close to the speed of light.
NASA’s Swift satellite has monitored Mrk 335 for years, and recently noted a dramatic change in its X-ray brightness. In what is called a target-of-opportunity observation, NuSTAR was redirected to take a look at high-energy X-rays from this source in the range of 3 to 79 kiloelectron volts. This particular energy range offers astronomers a detailed look at what is happening near the event horizon, the region around a black hole from which light can no longer escape gravity’s grasp.
Follow-up observations indicate that the corona is still in this close configuration, months after it moved. Researchers don’t know whether and when the corona will shift back. What’s more, the NuSTAR observations reveal that the grip of the black hole’s gravity pulled the corona’s light onto the inner portion of its superheated disk, better illuminating it. Almost as if somebody had shone a flashlight for the astronomers, the shifting corona lit up the precise region they wanted to study.
The new data could ultimately help determine more about the mysterious nature of black hole coronas. In addition, the observations have provided better measurements of Mrk 335’s furious relativistic spin rate. Relativistic speeds are those approaching the speed of light, as described by Albert Einstein’s theory of relativity.
“We still don’t understand exactly how the corona is produced or why it changes its shape, but we see it lighting up material around the black hole, enabling us to study the regions so close in that effects described by Einstein’s theory of general relativity become prominent,” said NuSTAR Principal Investigator Fiona Harrison of the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) in Pasadena. “NuSTAR’s unprecedented capability for observing this and similar events allows us to study the most extreme light-bending effects of general relativity.”
NuSTAR is a Small Explorer mission led by Caltech and managed by NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, for NASA’s Science Mission Directorate in Washington. The spacecraft was built by Orbital Sciences Corporation in Dulles, Virginia. Its instrument was built by a consortium including Caltech, JPL, the University of California, Berkeley, Columbia University, New York, NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Maryland, the Danish Technical University in Denmark, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in Livermore, California, ATK Aerospace Systems in Goleta, California, and with support from the Italian Space Agency (ASI) Science Data Center.
NuSTAR’s mission operations center is at UC Berkeley, with the ASI providing its equatorial ground station located in Malindi, Kenya. The mission’s outreach program is based at Sonoma State University, Rohnert Park, California. NASA’s Explorer Program is managed by Goddard. JPL is managed by Caltech for NASA.

Susan Joy Rennison was in Delft in 2011. With over 50.000 hits, her lecture is the best one viewed online of Studium Generale ever. Now she returns with the latest views on this very challenging but still little understood topic.
According to Richard Fisher, head of NASA’s Heliophysics Division: “Earth and space are about to come into contact in a way that’s new to human history. I believe we’re on the threshold of a new era in which space weather can be as influential in our daily lives as ordinary terrestrial weather. We take this very seriously indeed.”
For a long time, we believed that we inhabited a gravity-driven universe. But according to Rennison, among others, it is more accurate to say that we live in an electromagnetic universe.
Thousands of scientists are currently studying the behaviour of the sun to predict space weather. Plasma and particle bursts can and have disrupted satellites, high-frequency radio communications, GPS systems and power grids, etc., and looking at the rather turbulent life our sun is presently leading, more is on the way.
Most textbooks and literature about cosmology are completely out of date, so Rennison is informing people about why scientists studying space weather have had to abandon many of their former ideas. But the concept of an electromagnetic universe is already over a hundred years old, having been promoted by great Nobel Prize-winning minds like Hannes Alfvén.
Rennison thinks it is essential to realise that during severe space weather events, uncontrolled electric currents will flow through virtually everything on the planet. It will not help to discuss quantum mechanics. It is more important for people to realise that in the bombardment of planet Earth we are also receiving ‘dark energy’ and ‘dark matter’.
Although scientists have tried to understand how this will affect the Earth, Rennison claims that the discussion of the astronomical impact is still based on an outdated point of view. Furthermore, Rennison is convinced, based not only on traditional views, but also on scientific evidence, that the Sun’s outbursts also effect our bodies and minds.
In that respect, are all the world’s crises a sign that something really has to change in our way of thinking and acting? Susan Joy Rennison will discuss the latest press releases from NASA and ESA and other books and articles published since she wrote her book “Tuning the Diamonds” in 2006, on the relation between electromagnetism and spirituality.
Since then, many of her ideas have become reality as Space Weather is becoming more and more of an issue in everyday life. Although hardly discussed in the media, Space Weather is strongly affecting our life. Both in the technology we use and in our bodies, which are after all electromagnetic systems as well. There is, Rennison states, a serious problem with the electromagnetic understanding of the human body. Most scientist prefer people to think of themselves in terms of chemicals. Yet DNA is a nanotube that obeys quantum mechanical laws. Progress in DNA research has shown that DNA behaves in a much more adaptable way than earlier assumed. The sun has an enormous influence on our technology as well as on our bodies and minds!
According to the experts, earth is overdue for a reversal by double their best calculated estimations.

The moon in Aries, two filament eruptions and a couple small C-class flares sure made for a bumpy solstice weekend, short tempers were flaring-up everywhere…
Aside from a nice filament eruption and a Coronal Hole directly facing Earth, thus allowing solar material to freely rush in our direction, solar activity has been at low levels during last 30 hours.
It is expected to remain low with a chance for M-class (R1-R2(Minor-Moderate)) and a slight chance for X-class (R3 (Strong)) flare activity over the next three days.
There are currently 9 numbered sunspot regions on the Earth side of the Sun but we saw only a few low level C-class flares.
Slight growth was observed in the intermediate spots of Regions 2055 (N13W30, Ehi/beta) and 2060 while the rest of the spotted regions are either stable or in decay.

NOAA forecasters estimate a 35% chance of polar geomagnetic storms on May 14 when a co-rotating interaction region (CIR) is expected to hit Earth’s magnetic field.

A CIR is a compression region between fast- and slow-moving solar wind streams. Solar wind plasma piles up in these regions, producing density gradients and shock waves capable of producing major geomagnetic storms.
A nice filament eruption was observed south of Region 2060 around 11:00 UTC on May 12:

With Coronal Hole directly facing Earth today, solar material is freely rushing toward Earth. It will take it a couple of days to intersect with Earth’s orbit.

After a minor enhancement today, solar wind speed was in decline from approximately 460 km/s to 350 km/s. Nominal levels are expected to continue through the rest of the UTC day.
Another minor solar wind enhancement is expected on May 14 with the onset of a CIR preceding a recurrent positive-polarity Coronal Hole High Speed Stream (CH HSS) that is expected late on May 14/early on May 15.
High-latitude sky watchers should be alert for auroras.

The sun will look like a ring of fire above some remote parts of the world next Tuesday (April 29) during a solar eclipse, but most people around the world won’t get a chance to see it. Whereas lunar eclipses occur only when there’s a full moon, and solar eclipses only happen during a new moon. Half the world saw a lunar eclipse during the full moon on April 15. When a lunar eclipse occurs, it usually means there is also a solar eclipse at the preceding or following new moon.
Tuesday’s solar eclipse is known as an “annular” — rather than “total” — lunar eclipse. That’s because Tuesday’s eclipse will occur when the moon is close to its farthest distance from the Earth, making it too small to cover the sun completely. The resulting effect looks like a ring of fire, called an “annulus,” appears around the silhouette of the moon.
But most people won’t see the whole eclipse. The only place in the world where this annular eclipse will be visible is a small area in Antarctica. However, partial phases of the eclipse will be visible in other places. Most of those areas are in the ocean — rarely traveled ocean, in fact — but the entire continent of Australia will get a good view.
The annular solar eclipse of April 29, 2014 will only be total in a small area in Antarctica, but will be widely seen as a partial eclipse. The partial phases all be visible from most of Australia, and far across the southern Indian Ocean. It is seen here from Hobart, Tasmania.

The best view of the eclipse will be from the island state of Tasmania. From Hobart, the capital of Tasmania, the eclipse will begin with the moon taking a tiny nick out of the sun’s edge at 3:51 p.m. local time (0551 GMT). Maximum eclipse will be at 5 p.m. (0700 GMT), and the sun will set at 5:17 p.m. (0717 GMT).
