The NAS website is about astroscience - the sciences to do with places and objects beyond our world. It supports the Electric Universe paradigm.
NAS is about guiding the misled who have been erroneously taught that gravity is the dominant force in the Universe to realize that it is the electrical force which dominates on the cosmic scale.
All five of our senses operate via exchanges of positive and negative charges and relay electrical signals via the nervous system to the brain, which decodes them.
The light we see coming from the Sun and stars is a result of the interplay of electricity and magnetism. It's not just visible light; it is the entire spread of electromagnetic waves from long wavelength radio waves to high-frequency gamma radiation that are manifestations of electric and magnetic dances.
The thermal (infrared) radiation coming from the Sun is due to the activity of the 'first state' of matter - plasma, which by nature is electrical. The Sun is not a nuclear fusion reactor. At its core is plasma.
The Sun's interior is much cooler than the 6,000oK photosphere, hence why sunspots appear dark: -
Nuclear fusion occurs in the blistering hot 2 million degrees K corona: -
Electricity is all around us. It pervades the Universe. The visible Universe is almost 100% plasma. The Sun and stars are close to 100% plasma. Nearly 100% of the interplanetary, interstellar, and intergalactic medium is plasma. The Earth's ionosphere is plasma:
Gravity seems to be dominant here in the Solar System because the planets are now in electrically neutral orbits around the Sun, which is why Newton's law of Gravitation works so well with our space probes. We can calculate spacecraft trajectories correctly with gravitational slingshots to reach the outer planets.
Electricity seems to play a minor role in our world. However, its power easily demonstrated in lightning strikes:
However, the electric force is 1042 times more powerful than the feeble force of gravity:
Not that long ago the planets were in different positions. Their motions led to fearful interactions that our ancestors experienced. Evidence of cosmic thunderbolts is now well documented on the Thunderbolts website. David Talbott's film 'Symbols of an Alien Sky' and the many Electric Universe videos are eye-openers to the REAL Universe: -
Beyond the present 'electrically settled' Solar System, the electrical force is at work. It is why spiral galaxies behave the way they do, with all the member stars rotating at the same velocity - in defiance of Newtonian gravitation: -
Plasma filaments and Birkeland currents are ubiquitous and connect the stars of our Milky Way galaxy to its plasmoid core. They connect galaxies in the local group and other groups to galaxy clusters and superclusters. The Milky Way is a member of the Laniakea Supercluster:
It seems that plasmoids at the cores of galaxies power all the member stars. The Sun is, therefore, remotely powered.
Why don't we tap into that power? It's free, cosmic energy.
