Dusty plasma cosmology: Birkeland star filaments

As predicted by plasma based cosmologies the electric stars are powered externally by electromagnetic filaments (Birkeland currents).

Astronomers have discovered a vast structure in our galaxy, made up of many interconnected “nurseries” where stars are born. The long, thin filament of gas is a whopping 9,000 light-years long and 400 light-years wide.

What we’ve observed is the largest coherent gas structure we know of in the galaxy, organized not in a ring but in a massive, undulating filament

Radcliffe Wave Goulds Belt plasma cosmology

The Gravity Universe has little to do with young star formation or any cosmonogy. Scientists are observing that it is more and more looking like a plasma based electric universe. The Radcliffe Wave or Goulds Belt will likely turn out to be twisting pairs of filaments.

For the past 150 years, the prevailing view of the local interstellar medium was based on a peculiarity known as Gould’s Belt1–4, an expanding ring of young stars, gas and dust, tilted about 20 degrees to the Galactic plane.

Here we report the three-dimensional structure of all local cloud complexes. We find a narrow and coherent 2.7-kiloparsec arrangement of dense gas in the solar neighbourhood that contains many of the clouds thought to be associated with the Gould Belt. This finding is inconsistent with the notion that these clouds are part of a ring, disputing the Gould Belt model. The new structure comprises the majority of nearby starforming regions, has an aspect ratio of about 1:20, and contains about three million solar masses of gas.

Remarkably, the new structure appears to be undulating and its three-dimensional structure is well described by a damped sinusoidal wave on the plane of the Milky Way, with an average period of about 2 kiloparsecs and a maximum amplitude of about 160 parsecs.

Astronomers at Harvard University have discovered a monolithic, wave-shaped gaseous structure — the largest ever seen in our galaxy — made up of interconnected stellar nurseries. Dubbed the Radcliffe Wave in honor of the collaboration’s home base, the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study, the discovery transforms a 150-year-old vision of nearby stellar nurseries as an expanding ring into one featuring an undulating, star-forming filament that reaches trillions of miles above and below the galactic disk.

The researchers discovered a long, thin structure, about 9,000 light-years long and 400 light-years wide, with a wave-like shape, cresting 500 light-years above and below the mid-plane of our galaxy’s disk. The Wave includes many of the stellar nurseries that were thought to form part of Gould’s Belt, a band of star-forming regions believed to be oriented in a ring around the sun.

No astronomer expected that we live next to a giant, wave-like collection of gas — or that it forms the local arm of the Milky Way. We don’t know what causes this shape, but it could be like a ripple in a pond, as if something extraordinarily massive landed in our galaxy.

Disentangling structures in the dusty galactic neighborhood within which we sit is a longstanding challenge in astronomy.

Dusty plasma cosmology Birkeland filaments

Plasma beads on a string as Thornhill and Talbott have repeatedly predicted for decades.

First described in 1879, Gould’s Belt was thought to be comprised of star-forming regions, believed to be oriented around the Sun in a ring. The new study in Nature transforms that picture into one of a 90 quadrillion-kilometre-long, four quadrillion-kilometre-wide star-forming filament.

We were completely shocked when we first realised how long and straight the Radcliffe Wave is, looking down on it from above in 3D. The wave’s very existence is forcing us to rethink our understanding of the Milky Way’s 3D structure.

All of the stars in the Universe, including our Sun, are formed when clouds of gas and dust undergo a gravitational collapse.

Redshift, blueshift and all that jazz

Are all the assumptions on space distances correct? Especially when all electrical stars and our Sun are variable.

What if redshift is wrong? Perhaps intrinsic redshift or just electromagnetic influences on lightwaves and other parts of the EMF spectrum?

Studying stellar births is complicated by imperfect data. We risk getting the details wrong, because if you’re confused about distance, you’re confused about size, said Finkbeiner.

Goodman agreed, All of the stars in the universe, including our sun, are formed in dynamic, collapsing, clouds of gas and dust. But determining how much mass the clouds have, how large they are, has been difficult, because these properties depend on how far away the cloud is.

According to Goodman, scientists have been studying dense clouds of gas and dust between the stars for more than 100 years, zooming in on these regions with ever-higher resolution.
