At the very least it must be time for scientists from
different disciplines to sit down and compare notes.
The following is quoted from Thunderbolts.info
6th April 2005.
As plasma physicists look at astronomy
and astronomers look at plasma, the respective languages,
cultivated over many decades, can only accentuate the
gap in viewpoints. The language of 'plasma cosmology',
describing the formation of galaxies, stars, and planets,
includes many terms more familiar to electrical engineers
than to astronomers -- Langmuir sheaths, z-pinches,
glow discharges, arc discharges, plasmoids.
Astronomers have cultivated a different
language. Having banished charged plasma from space,
they concentrate on the much simpler behaviour of a
'magnetized gas', not the charge. Their equations for
the behaviour of plasma are typically those used to
describe flowing water and blowing wind, with a modification
due to magnetic effects -- the math of classical mechanics.
Thus, their lexicon reflects their perspective, with
words one might expect from a weatherman -- winds and
jets, bowshocks and shock waves, winds and rains of
charged particles, wind socks, etc.
What NASA scientists call a 'surprising
rain of charged particles' in the vicinity of Jupiters
moon Io is interesting and dangerous weather for spacecraft.
But in an electric universe the phenomenon means much
more than a cosmic weather report. It is a signature
of electrical activity that could not fail to produce
a continuous stream of surprises for those unaccustomed
to the behaviour of electrified plasma.
