Nikola Tesla and The Electric Universe

Nikola Tesla and the Electric Universe - The Big Picture. There was more to Nikola Tesla than a brilliant inventor, physicist, and electrical engineer. He was also very much aware of the broader implications for electromagnetism and electrodynamics. http://www.plasmacosmology.net http://www.thunderbolts.info Nikola Tesla, Electric Universe, Conspiracy theories, consp theory, Plasma Cosmology, Electricity in Space, Astronomy, Electric Comets, Hannes Alfven, Kristian Birkeland, Wal Thornhill, David Talbott, Anthony Peratt, aether physics, free energy, zeropoint, consciousness.

Thunderbolts of the Gods

In science one of the best markers for the accuracy of a model or theory is how well it predicts outcomes. This applies not only to future events but can also be applied to existing data. Below is a collection of predictions based on Electric Universe principles, which have been confirmed by observations and data. The link above provides a list of pending predictions.

The Electric Universe Pt3 of 4

Pulsars and Comets in the electric universe/plasma cosmology model. See this publication for some more info on this interpretation of pulsars, published and peer reviewed in the journal of astrophysics and space science; http://adsabs.harvard.edu/abs/1995Ap&SS.227..229H A pulsar (pulsating star) is an astronomical object which produces a regular pulse of radio waves (electromagnetic radiation) which is conventionally thought to be due to a rotating neutron star. The Plasma Universe explains pulsars as a magnetospheric transmission line system. Also see this website for more information on electrical activity associated with comets and some other evidence supporting the electric model (with peer reviewed references); http://www.plasma-universe.com/index.php/Comet

3of5_Cosmic Odyssey-Hubble Heritage

This is part 3 of a 5 part episode. To watch the full show go to my channel (Zuke696) then go to my Playlist, find the show then click Play All - Hubble's Heritage - In 1929, astronomer Edwin Hubble made one of the greatest discoveries in the history of science -- the expansion of the universe. To honor this king of cosmology, an orbiting observatory named the Hubble Space Telescope was launched in 1990 after years of research and delay. Hubble's Heritage takes a closer look at this instrument, from its beginning as a flawed engineering nightmare to its evolution, through corrective optics, into humanity's eyes on the universe. Viewers see some of the astonishing images captured by the Hubble Space Telescope through the years and learn of their significance to astronomers. Designers of the next generation of space telescopes explain the challenges that must be met before Hubble's successors can reveal more mysteries of the universe.

Creation Astronomy Propaganda Debunked 04

Once again, thanks for your patience guys and girls! New videos should be out more frequently from now on. In this video, we look at some outright lies and general creationist assbaggery about Venus, straight from the mouth of the good preacher, Spike Psarris. Dr. James Kasting's website, with plenty of great research to read, can be found here: http://www.geosc.psu.edu/~kasting/PersonalPage/Kasting.htm Specifically, the paper of direct interest can be downloaded here: http://www.geosc.psu.edu/~kasting/PersonalPage/Pdf/Icarus_88.pdf If you don't mind following a little atmospheric science, it's a highly recommended read. *About Venus' collision: Of course, we cannot directly observe events in the Solar System which happened millions of millenia ago. Current theory is a product of indirect evidence (such as the retrograde motion or high axial tilt - depending on how you look at it) combined with models for planet formation. It's harder to reconcile Venus with biblical creation though, because your conclusion will be in the region of the creator deliberately attempting to confuse its creation, and stifle their academic progress; hardly a loving act. Studying the atmospheric composition of Venus further will shed some light on its ancient history. I would suggest the greatest puzzles with Venus are its highly circular orbit (also a property of fellow freak planet, Uranus) and the fact that it has no moons (which are thought to be products of catastrophic collisions). The planet may well have formed as the result of two large objects actually 'sticking' together. I myself, and the scientific community have no intention of hiding these questions from the public. But I ask that you remember that a gap in our knowledge about something, particularly with no direct evidence, in no way validates jumping to wild conclusions. Future generations will be laughing at people like Spike even harder than we are now. If you're interested in seeing some great videos about inconsistencies with the bible, please check out the series entitled 'An Honest Search for the Truth' by holysinecure: http://www.youtube.com/holysinecure They were kind enough to give me a shout out recently and I'd like to return the favour (but recorded this video before I saw theirs - d'oh!) Various material in this video was produced by NASA/ESA All multimedia displayed is done so with fair use intended, for entirely non-profit, non-copyright, educational purposes. If you are the rightful owner of any material within the video and would like me to remove it, please contact me via my YouTube channel.

Naked Eye Observatory MTSU

It's MTSU's naked eye observatory. Some people have called it "Stones River Henge." It's a giant sundial, a calendar, an astronomical observatory, and more. Astronomer Eric Klumpe, who conceived of this beautiful and unique learning laboratory, paid homage to the ancient Greek astronomers by calling it the Uranidrome. URANI from the Greek word for sky and DROMOS meaning a large specially prepare place.

He is best known for his eponymous laws of planetary motion, codified by later astronomers based on his works "Astronomia nova", "Harmonices Mundi", and "Epitome of Copernican Astrononomy". They also provided one of the foundations for Isaac Newton's theory of universal gravitation. During his career, Kepler was a mathematics teacher at a seminary school in Graz, Austria, an assistant to astronomer Tycho Brahe, the court mathematician to Emperor Rudolf II, a mathematics teacher in Linz, Austria, and an adviser to General Wallenstein. He also did fundamental work in the field of optics, invented an improved version of the refracting telescope (the Keplerian Telescope), and helped to legitimize the telescopic discoveries of his contemporary Galileo Galilei. Kepler lived in an era when there was no clear distinction between astronomy and astrology, but there was a strong division between astronomy (a branch of mathematics within the liberal arts) and physics (a branch of natural philosophy). • http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johannes_Kepler .
