Video and Links

I will continue to add content to this website and particularly this page and the evidence page specifically over the next few months. 

During my journey of discovery by analyzing satellite imagery, I stumbled into a number of links and videos that I found simply fascinating and wanted to share with others.  I also ran across videos I could not adequately explain and videos that were instrumental in the formation of the ideas I have presented here.  I wanted to present a list of such links here for others to enjoy and comment on.

First and foremost I owe a special debt of gratitude to the folks that built and launched and maintain the SOHO, TRACE and YOHKOH, CHANDRA and Spitzer satellites.  This video by JPL shows the contents of our universe as seen in form various wavelengths.  These ideas about the sun first began to form after watching countless hours of RAW EIT video that can be downloaded by anyone from here.  All the RAW EIT (grey) images and video that can be found on this website were downloaded directly from these archives and all still images were extracted from the DIT files by copying a single frame using Quicktime.

I had a WONDERFUL conversation today, June 29th with Dr. Oliver Manuel about his work on lunar sample analysis.  Dr. Manual's work strongly suggests that the sun is mostly made of ferrite iron.  I think his work is critically important and likely provides all the math and nuclear chemistry analysis necessarily to support this model fully.   He has a very detailed paper explaining why the hydrogen model of the sun must be discarded based on nuclear chemical analysis of lunar soil samples and comets.

Marvin Herndon's work on the fission cores in planetary bodies is first rate and may help explain the energy release of the sun as well.

A unified field theory can now be constructed around the idea that our universe sits within an electromagnetic field that is constantly accelerating the universe itself.  I believe (though my math skills are rusty) that the math to demonstrate the idea that gravity is a function of acceleration has already been put forth by others.  I will research this and attempt to provide links.  Stay tuned.

Frank Makinson (BS EE '58) (One of the old guys) from Springville, CA totally blew my mind.  I think someone with far better math skills than me, needs to seriously consider the implications of this work. 

If you are looking for Hydrogen-Alpha (Ha) filters for your telescope to study where all the action is happening on the sun, Greg Piepol has a very nice website devoted to this particular filter and is quite knowledgeable about the technical ins and outs of using such filters. 

I would also like to thank the folks at Lockheed Martin for all their hard work and video as well.

NASA's Trace satellite routinely captures excellent daily images of the "crusty" surface of the calcium layer at 1550-1700 angstroms.

Over the past month or so I have also received some wonderfully supportive emails including one from Andres R. R. Papa who is doing some interesting work with threshold systems as it relates to solar storms.  I believe that a solid, electrically conductive  surface model of the sun supports his work in a big way.  Thanks for your encouragement!  I also believe that his vital work holds the key to understanding weather patterns on earth.

This particular video demonstrates the very fluid-like nature and odd behavior characteristics of the photosphere in remarkable detail IMO.  I personally found this footage simply fascinating. 

Dr. Alexander G. Kosovichev, from Stanford University, and Dr. Valentina V. Zharkova from Glasgow University have already demonstrated evidence of seismic activity using data collected by the Michelson Doppler Imager onboard the SOHO spacecraft following a flare on July 9, 1996.  This evidence of seismic activity led me to create and work on the tsunami page of this website.  I think their work also supports the notion that the plasma in the photosphere acts with very much like a "liquid" in many ways.  This liquid like behavior is also evidence by the granular nature of the surface of the photosphere.

Dr. Alexander G. Kosovichev, from Stanford University also created a wonderful illustration of the heat flow within the photosphere that I found extremely helpful in understanding the makeup and function of the photosphere.  In fact his two videos were instrumental in helping me understand the "texture" and "properties" of the photosphere.

During the uncounted hours I spent in front of my computer monitor watching raw EIT images and green processed EIT images, I ran across a phenomenon from January 10th through January 14th of 2001 that occurs repetitively but also quite infrequently.  In upper polar region and in the upper left corner of this processed green EIT video can be seen a "fluid-like" plasma that builds up within the photosphere and then "lifts off" or "burns off" or "evaporates off"  from the surface in a truly massive eruption.  I'm guessing that this is nickel plasma building up from the surface erosion process, but if you have any better suggestions, I'm all ears.  To adequately see the range of things that are happening, you may want to review all the EIT videos from January 10th, 11th, 12th, 13th and 14th of 2001 as a continuous loop.  The unprocessed "grey" videos are equally interesting but the phenomenon is most visible in processed green videos IMO.

The top photo on the right side of this page comes from the folks at Lockheed Martin, the National Center for Atmospheric Research, The Institute of Theoretical Astrophysics of the University of Oslo, and the Institute for Solar Physics of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences. A news article about these closeup photos of the photosphere can be found here and additional information and photos can be found here.

I would also like to thank Stein Vidar Hagfors Haugan at NASA for taking the time to PATIENTLY (that is the part I appreciated) explain to me the process used in creating "running difference images".  In no way do I mean to suggest that Mr. Haugan supports or endorses the ideas I have presented here in any way. I am simply grateful for his patient email responses to my questions.

This is a good website by the physics department at that explains many of the basic capabilities of each satellite.

A comprehensive spectral analysis of the sun can be found through the Serts program and a detailed breakdown of the sun's various ion emissions and their frequencies can be found here.  An interesting bit of support of the solid surface model comes from the spectral analysis of a "quiet" sun vs. an active sun.  One of the few differences between these active and quite times is the notable increase of sulfur and nickel during the active phase which suggests volcanic or magma activity could be involved in the active times, just as a solid surface model would predict.  It also records the presence of over 57 different types of ion emissions.  Any overly simplistic model of the makeup of the sun's various layers is therefore doomed to be inadequate until we understand where each ion comes from within each layer.

Future notions of astronomy will include a healthy respect for the electrical currents flowing through our universe.  Here are some links to papers that have set the stage for a far more comprehensive understanding of astrophysics: 

The first link talks about the electromagnetic heliosheath that surrounds the sun

This link talks about the observation of solar plumes found in iron ion emissions.  Here is another article describing the observation of  high altitude solar plumes.  All of this confirms the work of Kristian Birkeland.  The sun indeed has a solid surface that is very electrically active.  His lab results nearly mirror the observed behaviors of the sun on many levels.  It is clear that Kristian Birkeland set the groundwork for a far more comprehensive understanding of our universe based on an "electric" universe model.

I have also run across some very interesting videos related to density and compositions of liquid like bodies in space that may play a part in the overall "density" of the sun.

You may download the original FITS files from the TRACE program at this link.

The power of the sun in all its splendor!

A very interesting video of a solar eruption.

The EIT Fe IX/X (171 ) image from 16:45 UT, 7-Mar-96, showing polar plumes over the south polar hole at 1.0 x 106K. (B) The EIT Fe XII (195 ) image from 16:34 UT, 7-Mar-96.  Some key locations have been circled for intercomparison between the two images.  Such plumes validate the notion of an electrically active sun as Kristian Birkeland suggested at the turn of the 20th century.

Such polar plumes extend into well into upper regions of the suns corona.
