My main take-away from watching this stunning clip, which is made up of multiple images-per-second taken of the Sun, over the past five years, is that I am more convinced of Plasma Cosmology (aka The Electric Universe Theory) than ever before.

In their blurb for this commemorative clip of the 5th anniversary since the launch of NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory, they remain mum about what’s known to mainstream astronomers as the “Coronal Heating Problem,” saying only that, “By watching the Sun in different wavelengths – and therefore different temperatures – scientists can watch how material courses through the corona, which holds clues, as to what causes eruptions on the Sun, what heats the sun’s atmosphere up to 1,000 times hotter than its surface…”

Plasma cosmologists, on the other hand, describe this phenomenon, not as a “problem” but as evidence that their theory is more viable than the prevailing thermodynamic view:

“In the Electric Model, we don’t have that problem, because if we have the energy arriving outside of the sun, the first place you’d expect to see that energy expressed is above the sun and its tenuous atmosphere. That is the place where particle acceleration occurs and the apparent temperature is very high, indeed, up into the millions of degrees.”

‘Thunderbolts of the Gods’

If you haven’t seen the film, ‘Thunderbolts of the Gods,’ I cannot recommend it more highly. You can watch it – after watching the mind-blowing NASA video, above.

‘Thunderbolts of the Gods,’ can be viewed here:

Here’s some of NASA’s commemorative blurb:

“February 11, 2015 [marked] five years in space for NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory, which provides incredibly detailed images of the whole sun 24 hours a day. Capturing an image more than once per second, SDO has provided an unprecedentedly clear picture of how massive explosions on the sun grow and erupt ever since its launch on Feb. 11, 2010. The imagery is also captivating, allowing one to watch the constant ballet of solar material through the sun’s atmosphere, the corona…

“Five years into its mission, SDO continues to send back tantalizing imagery to incite scientists’ curiosity. For example, in late 2014, SDO captured imagery of the largest sun spots seen since 1995 as well as a torrent of intense solar flares. Solar flares are bursts of light, energy and X-rays. They can occur by themselves or can be accompanied by what’s called a coronal mass ejection, or CME, in which a giant cloud of solar material erupts off the sun, achieves escape velocity and heads off into space. In this case, the sun produced only flares and no CMEs, which, while not unheard of, is somewhat unusual for flares of that size. Scientists are looking at that data now to see if they can determine what circumstances might have led to flares eruptions alone.

“Goddard built, operates and manages the SDO spacecraft for NASA’s Science Mission Directorate in Washington, DC. SDO is the first mission of NASA’s Living with a Star Program. The program’s goal is to develop the scientific understanding necessary to address those aspects of the sun-Earth system that directly affect our lives and society.”
