Wal Thornhill: SAFIRE and the Future of Science, Part Two | Space News

Welcome to Space News from
the Electric Universe, brought to you by The
Thunderbolts Project™ at Thunderbolts.info In part 1 of this presentation,
physicist Wal Thornhill began his analysis of the recent remarkable update
by the team behind the groundbreaking scientific experiment,
the SAFIRE project. For the first time, an
independent experiment has been conducted to audit the Electric Sun
model, first proposed by the engineer Ralph Juergens in the 1970s. At the recent University of
Bath Electric Universe conference in the UK, SAFIRE’s principal
scientist and chief engineer Montgomery Childs said of SAFIRE’s results; in all
our experiments and discoveries, we have found no disparities with
the Electric Sun model. We believe the SAFIRE experiment validates
and supports the Electric Sun model. Childs is president and founder
of the engineering firm Aurtas International Incorporated, which was
contacted by the International Science Foundation to experimentally
test the Electric Sun. As noted previously, Aurtas
International Inc. is an independent body which has no affiliation with the Electric
Universe or The Thunderbolts Project. In this episode, Thornhill
continues with his thoughts on some of the most stunning
SAFIRE results to date. This famous photo of settled
science will be recognized in future as the moment we stopped
doing physics in the 20th century. Quantum theory discarded
the physics principle of cause followed by effect. Einstein didn’t like it but he
had already done the fatal damage. He isolated his arbitrary inertial
observers from the rest of the universe, discarded the absolute
standards of length and time, invented an imaginary proper clock, which doesn’t
exist, removed the ether, and the effect of gravity became an illusion, all unforgiveable nonsense to the
great physicists of the past. We were propelled
back almost 2,000 years to the Greek Ptolemaic era, when geometric
symmetry and mathematical beauty dictated that endless ad-hoc epicycles
be added to perfect circular planetary orbits in order to match appearances. That dogma lasted for over 1500 years. How long will we allow relativity
dogma and its taboos to persist? It should be no surprise
that since that conference, science has failed to produce
fundamental breakthroughs, anything like the 19th century, when some of the finest
experimental physicists: Weber, Ampere, Gauss, Faraday, were discovering the
secrets of electricity and magnetism. For example, Wilhelm Weber produced an
electrodynamic orbital model of the atom in the 1870s, 40 years before it was
experimentally discovered by Ernest Rutherford. Weber’s electrodynamic law will
form the foundation of future physics. The Electric Universe follows the lead
of those experimenting electrical pioneers. The SAFIRE project shows our
century-old understanding of stars, and therefore the universe,
is fundamentally wrong. There is no mention of electricity in space
in any textbook on astronomy or cosmology. The Electric Sun model accepts and
extends electrical Plasma Cosmology, the only experimentally tested and
predictive cosmology today. The Nobel-Prize-winning
plasma physicist Hannes Alfven developed it based on a universal
network of Birkeland current filaments connecting and driving the rotation of
galaxies, which matches modern observations. 50 years ago, he predicted a crisis
in astrophysics because theorists chose to misunderstand his
pioneering research in Plasma Physics. The SAFIRE project
proves he was right. Galaxies are an electrically powered phenomenon,
and electric stars light their spiral circuits. It shows we have wasted
more than 60 years trying to produce energy “like the Sun,” based on the
unshakable belief that stars are isolated thermonuclear-
powered campfires in the sky. The SAFIRE project exposes the
complicated untestable life-and-death story of thermonuclear
stars as fictional. Plasma Cosmology has a long history
of peer-reviewed literature in the nuclear and plasma sciences society
of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, the IEEE. The dysfunction of modern
institutionalized science is epitomized by the absence of astronomers
at the IEEE conferences. In my experience, there was
one notable exception, the radio astronomer Gerrit Verschuur who used
his expertise to map local interstellar Birkeland currents. He wrote, “The role of large-scale
currents may be far more important in defining interstellar structure than has
generally been recognized within the astronomical community.” Plasma Cosmology supports the Electric
Sun model in another crucial aspect. It successfully predicted
that stars are formed by powerful electromagnetic pinches strung
along Birkeland current filaments inside molecular clouds. The electrical formation
easily accounts for the observed but unexplained flickering of
newborn stars, and witnessed in SAFIRE. The electromagnetic accretion process
is called Marklund convection, which deposits heavy elements at the cool
center of the star, and hydrogen and helium in the outermost atmosphere. There is no thermonuclear core in a star. Of course, the evidence has always been
plain to see in the fact that sunspots are dark and cool compared to the
surrounding bright photosphere. Astrophysics and particle physics are
the two pillars of cosmology. The SAFIRE project knocks
down both pillars. The two disciplines have fed off
each other’s misinformation for decades giving birth to futile and hugely
expensive projects; fusion power unlike the Sun, the Large Hadron Collider in a
futile attempt to explain mass independent of the matter exhibiting
mass, and the baseless quest for imaginary dark matter
and dark energy. As one theoretical physicist admitted, we
gratuitously blow the public’s mind with our crazy ideas. As for the Big Bang, it
is plainly unscientific. There is no idea how matter
is constructed, let alone created, which defies
a principle of physics. And thanks to Einstein, mass and
energy are physically undefinable, and we have no physical idea how gravity works. Einstein’s universal speed limit of
light is applied to the electric force and gravity, despite the inverse square
law applying to them, both being independent of time. Introducing a speed of light
delay renders orbital systems like those in the atom and the solar
system incoherent and unstable. This also reveals that
gravitational wave detectors are not detecting gravity signals
because their coincident detection assumes gravity operates
at the speed of light. As for super-collapsed
gravitational objects like black holes and neutron stars, Plasma Cosmology
explains in detail the phenomena associated with them, both by theory and
experiment, and has no need of them. The SAFIRE project exposes the misbegotten
taboo by fusion researchers against low energy transmutation
and energy production. That has held up progress in
nuclear power for more than 60 years. In 1979, Juergens asked, “Could it be that
the search for thermonuclear energy is a false trail that has been followed all
these years with no real hope of success? If the Sun and the stars indeed succeed
in fusing lighter elements to form heavier ones, are the relevant activities
carried out more or less in plain sight — in their atmospheres?” Supporting evidence has since
been found of an anti- correlation between sunspot number, a
photospheric effect, and neutrino count from the Sun. In about the same year, 1979,
I read the work of a noted French scientist, professor
C. Louis Kervran, who in the 1960s published important
research demonstrating low-energy biological transmutations of the
chemical elements which, surprise, surprise, “…falls outside mainstream
physics and is not part of the scientific discourse…”
according to Wikipedia. However, the SAFIRE project is now verifying
low-energy nuclear transmutations. In 1981, I read a small pamphlet
titled ‘Electron Structure’ by Ralph Sansbury, an independent
researcher from New York. He proposed an orbital model
of the electron which, when applied to nucleons, provides a simple
alternative model of nuclear reactions involving resonant catalytic
nuclear chemistry at low energies. It provided a real physical basis
for understanding quantum mechanics. It shows, the picture of fusion
requiring high-energy particle collisions to overcome a high nuclear
Coulomb barrier is too restrictive. Weber’s electrodynamics shows a
short-range resonant attraction between two like-charged particles,
such as two atomic nuclei. With this in mind, I spoke
to Monty regularly in the design stage about the requirements for the
experimental star and the detection of elemental transmutation. My friend and Thunderbolts
colleague, professor Donald Scott also extended Juergens’ Electric Sun
model by recognizing the PNP transistor action of the anode tufts or photospheric
granulations, which was successfully produced in phase one of
SAFIRE’s proof of concept. This mechanism was important
in the model to steady the radiant output of the Sun, while in X-rays
the Sun is a variable star. The steadiness of starshine
from billions of stars is one of the disparities of the
standard thermonuclear model. Don also provided electrical engineering
advice in the construction phase. Don’s most recent contribution
to understanding the electromagnetic structure of Birkeland
current filaments, promises a deeper understanding of the connection
between an electric star and its interstellar circuit, as well as
many mysterious phenomena in deep space and within the solar system. The Thunderbolts team are grateful to Monty
and a remarkable dedicated team who successfully designed and built the
historic experiment, then devised and performed the SAFIRE experiments
employing the latest Design Of Experiments methodology to independently
test the Electric Sun model. Their professional investigation and results
change everything we thought we knew about our place in the universe. That, I hopefully predict, will have
a beneficial effect on all of us. It is a far more inclusive, coherent and
hopeful, big picture than we have ever had. Best of all, responses show, it
inspires people and just makes sense.
