Can you make sense out of press releases and TV programs that attempt to explain the newest astronomical ‘discoveries’ – things like invisible dark energy, warped 11-dimensional spaces, and black holes that spit out matter? If not, you have lots of company.
The time to search for some realistic, intelligent, scientific answers has arrived. And those sensible answers are out there for those who are ready to listen - explanations of those answers are in this book.
Astronomers have been ignoring electrical activity in space for years. Their inability to generate sensible explanations for many observations made by state-of-the-art astronomical instruments demonstrates they need to study the properties of electrical plasma in the cosmos.
If, as we will claim, the causes of most of the observed phenomena of modern astronomy are electrical in nature, do you need a degree in electrical engineering before you can understand them? Indeed not. The average informed person can understand and make rational judgments about these ideas. All it requires is the time and patience to read and to think logically and critically about the issues. Some basic facts and a few new concepts will suffice. The main goal of this book is to convince you, the reader, that you really do have both the capability and responsibility to make informed, critical judgments about the pronouncements of establishment science. A careful reading of these pages will enable you to make an informed assessment of this new, simpler, plasma-based alternative cosmology.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Don Scott explodes the myth of the Electrically-Neutral Universe... 26. April 2007
Von Michael Gmirkin - Veröffentlicht auf
Don Scott puts forth some very interesting observations and explanations on the topic of electrical interactions in space.

While this topic is currently taboo in "standard" cosmology, it is quite a necessary step in the right direction if we are to understand many of the most puzzling discoveries in space during the current technological revolution in the sciences.

We see "magnetic fields" everywhere in space (around stars, black holes, nebulae, etc.), yet standard astronomers tend to ignore or sideline or outright DENY the existence of the electric fields that MUST give rise to or co-exist with the magnetic fields.

Have they forgotten that James Clerk Maxwell integrated our understanding of magnetism with our understanding of electricity? Where one exists, so too by nature exists the other. Turn a magnet in a coil of conductive wires to produce an electric current. Run an electric current through a coil of wires to produce a magnetic field. This understanding MUST make its way into space sciences, or all is for naught. Even if the truth ends up being painful or embarrassing to the "standard model."

This book is a must-read for astronomers, cosmologists, skeptics, and the open-minded public at large. If you like this book, you may also be interested in the following titles: Seeing Red: Redshifts, Cosmology and Academic Science, The Big Bang Never Happened: A Startling Refutation of the Dominant Theory of the Origin of the Universe, Thunderbolts of the Gods and The Electric Universe.



There has occasionally been controversy over this topic (despite a solid sensible point to be made).

Notably Tim Thompson has offered a rebuttal, to which Don Scott has responded:

(Tim Thompson's rebuttal of Don Scott's work)

(Don Scott's rejoinder to Tim Thompson's criticisms with additional detail and commentary.)

I suggest that, for fairness, readers read both sides with an open mind, read the book (more detailed and comprehensive), then make up their own minds as to what makes more sense (as opposed to blindly accepting what one side or the other says).

5.0 von 5 Sternen Educated observations from an Educated Engineer 2. Februar 2008
Von Hightower - Veröffentlicht auf
I hear time and time again that people should attend an introduction physics class and throw this book into the trash. I hear it far too often from people who have only given a brief skim of the book and who are not well versed in electromagnetism. Don Scott is a respectable professor who has taught electrical engineering classes for decades. To state the man has no education within science is pure slander and is a poor argument. I am an electrical engineer myself and everything Dr. Scott has written upon electricity is accurate and correct. His theory on the nature of electricity in space is up for debate, and if, like me, you come from a foundation in the traditional it would be difficult to grasp. Give it a sincere read and double check with both sides of the argument. You might just find something that expands your intrigue into doubting all that is feed to you, both inside and out of academia.

Dr. Scott is not just whistling Dixie when he makes his observations. The interactions that occur in space are very, and having noticed them myself, very similar to electrical systems. Plasma is a fairly new concept within physics and it is just recently that much of its behavior has been recorded in labs. Having talked to plasma researchers they describe much of what Dr. Scott does but without the knowledge of his theories. I am confident that these researchers are not off their rockers.

One issue I have noticed over the years is the tendency for people in different fields of science to segregate themselves. It is not done to be rude or elite, it just happens to be how the nature of the field goes. Most research does not require such collaboration, and so respective specialties keep to themselves. However, when it comes to the vastness of space and the theory defying observations made every day, perhaps it is time to start looking into more areas of science than what is a person's professional specialty. Please, save the evil "educated person" bit, especially since the author has profuse education credentials. If you doubt his merits, page VII of the book has his biography.

5.0 von 5 Sternen What if Nearly Everything you Knew About Space was Wrong? 25. April 2007
Von Chris Reeve - Veröffentlicht auf
Don Scott's "The Electric Sky" presents a very serious challenge to mainstream cosmology. Most space science enthusiasts are unaware that traditional cosmologists believe that laboratory plasma physics do not scale to universe-sized phenomenon. In the laboratory, matter within the plasma state has electrical resistance and conducts electricity very well. But mainstream cosmologists insist that despite decades of experimentation with laboratory plasmas that space plasmas can be modeled as fluids because they allege that the plasmas instantaneously neutralize charge imbalances and have frozen-in-place magnetic fields. Few space enthusiasts or even modern-day cosmologists are aware that Hannes Alfven, the man who largely originated these concepts, warned during his Nobel Physics Prize acceptance speech in the 1970's that these concepts were in fact "pseudo-pedagogical" -- ideas that superficially appear to help, but in fact cause great harm to our understanding of the universe. His warnings were overwhelmingly ignored even as it was discovered that plasma constitutes the large majority of what we observe to be the universe. The end result has been that astrophysics has increasingly become reliant upon particles and forces that are largely divorced from common sense and laboratory experimentation in order to account for the extraordinarily strong electrical forces that plasma can exert. By properly modeling plasma in space as an electrical phenomenon, many of the mysteries of the universe bear an uncanny resemblance to phenomenon we've observed within laboratory plasma physics. Don Scott does a superb job of explaining the theory in terms that anybody can understand.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Emperor Has No Clothes 5. Juli 2007
Von R. O. Bjarnason - Veröffentlicht auf
While Scott presents a scathing critique of the Big Bang model, the focus of this book is the exposition of an elegant new model of the universe; a model that comprehends and predicts observed phenomena in terms of electrical interactions in space. Eminently readable to any reasonably intelligent person, written in plain but scientific English, without the condescending analogies so common in popular science books. Scott, an avid astronomer and a professor of electrical engineering, takes the perspective of an outsider to theoretical physics looking, not in at the established theory, but up at the actual sky.

The Electric Sky was a revelation. It's like being the first kid to discover that there is no Santa Claus. I will never watch a science program on TV with the same eyes again. I hear buzzwords like "spacetime", "magnetic reconnection", "black holes", "dark matter", "dark energy" and can't help scoffing. I know now that these are simply names given to vast gaps in cosmologists' understanding. I look at the emperor and see that he is nude.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Real Plasma - Questionable Dark Matter 19. November 2007
Von Plasma Spiral - Veröffentlicht auf
If you are a cosmologist, you probably will not like The Electric Sky. That is because the book is based on the well established Maxwell's equations and plasma science. That is a branch of physics not usually stressed in cosmology courses. If you are an electrical engineer, plasma scientist or anyone interested in a different approach to understanding cosmology that is based on well established scientific principles, then you will greatly enjoy this easy to understand presentation.

This book describes why it is important to understand electrical plasma phenomena for studying the universe and how plasma experiments and theory explain many of the so called mysteries of the universe. Mysteries such as dark matter and dark energy are merely mathematical results forced by considering mainly gravity and ignoring well established plasma effects.

I have a PhD in Plasma Physics but I recommend the book to anyone, with or without a scientific background, who is interested in a non-esoteric approach to cosmology. You do not have to make up obscure entities to understand the plasma universe. The observations fit experiment and theory.
