On October 2, NASA’s SOlar Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) captured footage of a bright comet impacting with the Sun, followed by a coronal mass ejection (CME).

NASA’s statement that, “While it looks to the casual observer that the comet triggered the ejection, the apparent relationship between an incoming comet and a CME is only a coincidence.”

Present-day proponents of the Electric Model of the Universe would disagree. The Electric Model of the Universe (or Plasma Cosmology) highlights the importance of electricity throughout the Universe. They say, “Gravity attracts. But only the electric force can repulse huge masses in jets, solar wind, eruptions. It also forms matter to filaments. Filaments and jets are in the fifth state of matter which can be by orders more energetic than plasma.”

NASA argues that there had been several CMEs earlier that day — but any previous CMEs on October 2 would not contradict the Electric Model, at all.

NASA acknowledges the work of plasma cosmologists, such as Hannes Alfvén, Wal Thornhill and David Talbott but they say, “Nothing has yet come out of these efforts.” However, the more forward-thinking Los Alamos National Labs website states that, “Alfvén’s theories in astrophysics and plasma physics have usually gained acceptance only two or three decades after their publication.”

Plasma Cosmology

Plasma cosmology is a non-standard cosmology generally attributed to a 1970 Nobel laureate named Hannes Alfvén. Ionized gases, or plasmas, play the central part in plasma cosmology’s explanation for the development of the universe, thus dominated largely by electrodynamic forces rather than gravitational forces. Alfvén proposed the use of plasma scaling to describe cosmological phenomena by extrapolating the results of sheltered terrestrial and space physics experiments to scales orders-of-magnitude greater. Alfvén also hypothesized that matter and anti-matter, when stirred by the energetic output of their own annihilation reactions, formed a mixture of so-called ambiplasma by which matter and anti-matter would repel due to opposing magnetic fields.

Plasma cosmology contradicts the current consensus of astrophysicists that Einstein’s Theory of general relativity explains the origin and evolution of the universe on its largest scales, relying instead on the further development of classical mechanics and electrodynamics in application to astrophysical plasmas.

On October 2, 2011, an exceptionally bright comet headed toward the sun and disintegrated. Moments later a large coronal mass ejection (CME) blew off the other side of the sun, making for this captivating movie from the SOlar Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO).

While it looks to the casual observer that the comet triggered the ejection, the apparent relationship between an incoming comet and a CME is only a coincidence. At this stage of the solar cycle, the sun is producing many mass ejections — in fact there were several earlier in the day — and it is only chance that one of them burst off the sun at the same time the comet approached. Some researchers have been looking for a more direct relationship, but nothing has yet come out of these efforts.

The comet shown here was a comet known as a Kreutz sungrazer. When a comet comes this close to the sun, it is almost always destroyed — we see the comet going in, but not going back out.
