The more we learn about the Sun. the theory became fact. Only nuclear processes. saying that the source of the Sun’s fire was yet a mystery. B efore the advent of the nuclear age. science felt they had their answer. was thought to be responsible for the vast amounts of energy that the Sun radiated. Everyone saw the awesome size and power of a nuclear detonation thanks to another. Thus. new. Larson THINGS AS THEY ARE. none were universally accepted. A much stronger case could be made for our Sun being an electrical anode in a galactic electrical circuit. and later fusion. We were regaled with seemingly endless news reports and documentaries regarding the unthinkable devastation that awaited us if the two superpowers of the Cold War ever had the temerity and foolhardiness to employ those weapons. Most shrugged their intellectual shoulders. scientists pondered the origins of the Sun’s tremendous expenditure of heat and light. Nuclear fission. could release that much energy from matter in order to power the Sun for millions of years. The logic was rather compelling. the less beliveable this becomes. Physicists and astronomers advanced the idea — and the public accepted it — that the Sun was fired by the same fuel as the weapon that won the war in the Pacific. With the advent of the atomic bomb. WERE AND ARE TO COME Since the birth of the atomic age over fifty years ago a near-universallyaccepted truth is that our Sun is an on-going thermonuclear explosion.
the point of greatest heat and light was not within the Sun or even on the surface. relatively speaking. the less the data fit with their nuclear model. that the heat and pressure at the Sun’s core were ideal for supporting nuclear fusion and fission. It was located high above the surface in what can be characterized as the Sun’s atmosphere. What they learned surprised everyone. The sun was much cooler. in the corona. Ironically. it would be relatively cool. most of them so convoluted that the individual of average intelligence and education was unable to dispute them. How could that be? What could cause a nuclear-fired star like our Sun to have such anomalous heat characteristics? It was like finding that a wood stove was hottest outside rather than inside where the fire burned. No one really seemed interested in doubting the theory. they hypothesized.3 Then we entered the space age. Unmanned space probes were launched toward the Sun in an ongoing effort to understand it. the more they learned. Indeed. Rather than question the nuclear nature of the Sun. so to speak. Moving away from the active core. the hottest spot was above the surface. much less follow the logic. Neutrinos are highly energetic subatomic particles emitted by . Neutrinos. Ever more sophisticated equipment was employed to probe the workings of the Sun. The newly acquired data did not fit the model of a nuclearpowered Sun. at the surface. Something was clearly wrong. neutrinos everywhere Then there is the neutrino problem. at the center than at the surface. The nuclear model of the Sun predicted that the atomic fires at its center were the hottest. Several ad hoc explanations were ginned up to explain the anomalous temperature readings within the context of the nuclear Sun theory. scientists sought for another explanation that might reconcile the data with the nuclear engine theory of the Sun. That is. certainly cooler than the center. however. The temperature problem The first problem was discovered when they took the Sun’s temperature. the temperature would gradually drop until.
Nuclear physicists expected to find copious numbers of neutrinos in their experiment. are fired by nuclear reactions. They are hard to detect because they have no electrical charge or apparent mass. Scientists believed that our star. most neutrinos are so energetic that they can pass easily through anything on the Earth’s surface — walls. They were stunned to discover that the opposite was true. Physicists theorize that neutrinos are ejected from stars because the stars. those that come from our Sun. Indeed. Physicists determined that the only way they could “see” neutrinos from our sun was to go deep into an existing mine where the less energetic particles from space would have been slowed or stopped after passing a considerable distance through Earth’s crust. as should have been the case according to their theories. whatever. like our Sun. thus confirming their nuclear engine theory for the Sun. An experiment was devised in order to test the theory by counting the most energetic neutrinos — those emitted by the closest star. the Sun. We are bombarded by neutrinos from those stars every day of our lives. Once again. buildings. They are ubiquitous in space. they “saw” almost none. they would be able to detect the most energetic neutrinos of all. ought to emit a huge number of neutrinos since — according to the current theory of its workings — it generates its power by a nuclear fission reaction. our Sun. Instead of detecting numerous neutrinos. if you wish to sample only those neutrinos from the Sun. Of course. cars. and they pass easily through matter. while more energetic neutrinos from our neighboring star would still reach their detection equipment deep within the Earth. How could this be? As with the temperature problem they refused to follow the Occam’s Razor principle: The simplest explanation is probably the correct one. Scientists knew from practical experience with the atomic bomb that neutrinos are the automatic byproducts of such reactions. scientists conjured up numerous ad hoc theories to explain still more data that contradicted their model . but they go unnoticed because they pass through us as easily as light passes through a pane of glass. Using sophisticated devices.4 nuclear reactions. then you must have a way to screen out the constant rain of cosmic rays from space that would interfere with any such detection. They could not bring themselves to question their elegant thermonuclear theories.
would be the hottest. creating light and heat. then divesting itself of that energy by discharging like a great cathode in space. electrical phenomena. defined and regulated by electromagnetic fields.) This accumulated charge is released in a constant discharge. this is exactly what astrophysicists observed when they took the Sun’s temperature. with the surface of the Sun and the interior registering progressively cooler relative temperatures. the corona or photosphere. the complex but powerful electromagnetic forces brought to bear by planets closing on one another generated colossal interplanetary effects such as interplanetary lightning. then restart it again. including new categories of neutrinos that came in various “flavors. Once again. (Remember that . They point out that the Sun may operate like a negatively charge body accumulating additional charge from the environment it moves through. Velikovsky was the first to speculate that in past catastrophic near collisions. The Earth we live on. indeed all the planets and moons in our solar system. The light goes on Consider this possibility: We may live in an electric universe. if planets are electrically neutral? Forces other than gravity must have been at work. ordered and shaped by electrical energy. the stars within them powered by electricity. They would be incidental to an electric Sun. Many scholars and maverick scientists have speculated recently that such may be the case. not primary as in a nuclear Sun.” These and other anomalies too esoteric to discuss here point away from the theory of the Sun as a nuclear engine. in a process somewhat analogous to that in a fluorescent light bulb. the only other form of energy known to have enough power to light the Sun. (The cathode in your television set does just that to light up the screen. How could a passing planet slow and stop the Earth’s rotation. It would also explain the temperature anomaly. Of course. The active. disturbed rotation.5 of a nuclear Sun. Instead. energetic area. The galaxies may be lit. they point to the Sun as an electromagnetic engine. It fits the observed data This would explain the lack of neutrinos from the Sun. massive inductive heating and numerous other secondary. may be immersed in.

Nuclear power generation is a dismal failure due to its lethality. alternating current electrical system we use today. we have partially harnessed the energy of the cosmos with almost no understanding of it. as we learned at Chernobyl. Like light and gravity. theoretical dream.) These assertions suggest that the true nature of the universe. Except as a devastating weapon of war. and the Sun specifically. Could it be that this eventuality has a lesson for us in our view of the Sun’s fires? On the other hand. Yet. It has become so much a part of our existence that it is hard to imagine life without electricity to do our bidding. electricity remains largely a mystery to us. electricity has revolutionized our world. the world has been powered and lit by electricity. Nuclear fission provides only a miniscule about of energy worldwide for that very reason. we still understand little of its nature or its workings. that once seemed to hold such promise as an abundant energy source. . Is it merely a coincidence that we have employed electrical power so readily and effectively while nuclear power has faltered? Might it be that this is an indication of the true relative importance of the two in the universe? The implications in such an idea are both staggering and stimulating. the counterpart of fission. Like our ancestors who learned to use fire without understanding its nature. it may explain gravity as an electromagnetic effect rather than strictly one of mass. Nuclear fusion. magnetism and electrical currents. ever since Nikola Tesla invented the polyphase. the nuclear genie has little magic. The study of superconductors promises remarkable discoveries in the near future about the nature of electricity and the relationship between gravity. If true.6 Mormon wrote in Helaman that the Earth stops and even reverses rotation for a short time. ephemeral. Learning from our own experience It is ironic that a half-century of nuclear experimentation has failed to yield the abundance of power for the use of mankind that science originally promised.
