natural electron particle accelerators

Natures electromagnetic particle accelerators

Particles and especially electrons accelerated by natural electromagnetic plasma forces are suggested and predicted by the Electric Universe theory, for example the Suns slow and fast solar winds (flowing currents of plasma).

Astrophysical jets have been observed accelerating ionized gases (plasma) and electrons, with electron synchrotron radiation being emitted.

Two jets of ionized matter with a bulk velocity of approximately 0.26c (where c is the speed of light in vacuum) extend from the binary, perpendicular to the line of sight, and terminate inside W50, a supernova remnant that is being distorted by the jets

The jets flowing and supplying energy to various parts of natures particle accelerator?

radio and X-ray emission consistent with electron synchrotron emission in a magnetic field have been observed… teraelectronvolt γ-ray observations of the SS 433/W50 system that spatially resolve the lobes. The teraelectronvolt emission is localized to structures in the lobes, far from the centre of the system where the jets are formed. We have measured photon energies of at least 25 teraelectronvolts, and these are certainly not Doppler-boosted, because of the viewing geometry.

We conclude that the emission—from radio to teraelectronvolt energies—is consistent with a single population of electrons with energies extending to at least hundreds of teraelectronvolts in a magnetic field of about 16 microgauss.

Spiralling currents of plasma in a similar way to helicoidal Birkeland filaments? Brightening of dusty plasma jets due to increase in energy flow or resistance of material?

jets corkscrew through space in an expanding helical spray… It appears that the jets are sometimes impacting material shortly after being created and thus brightening. The material the jets are impacting appears to be replaced some of the time, but not always, leading to variations in the brightening of the jets.

SS 433 jets Kristian Birkeland filaments

Powerful relativistic jets are among the most ubiquitous and energetic observational consequences of accretion around supermassive black holes in active galactic nuclei and neutron stars and stellar-mass black holes in x-ray binary (XRB) systems. But despite more than three decades of study, the structure and composition of these jets remain unknown…

Apparently, in situ reheating of the baryonic component of the jets takes place in a flow that moves with relativistic bulk velocity even more than 100 days after launch from the binary core.

Extremely fast solar eruptions and accelerator

If it is an Electric Universe then plasma phenomena and structures should be scalable. Plasma star particle acceleration?

The highest-energy events that occur in the solar system are solar flares and coronal mass ejections (CME) producing a significant release of plasma and associated magnetic fields from the solar corona at speeds ranging from 100 to 3,500 km/s. The gigantic solar plasma cloud and the accompanying powerful shock wave can reach our planet in one to five days, causing severe geomagnetic storms. Solar flares involve the release of a tremendous amount of energy equivalent to that of dozens of millions of hydrogen bombs, and exceeding the amount of energy produced on Earth in a year…

The analysis of unique space data revealed extremely fast lateral expansion of the CME, triggering a solar tsunami ‒ a powerful plasma shock wave traveling at up to 1,100 km/s. The CME radial acceleration peak was 5.3 km/s2, while its lateral expansion peak reached 10.1 km/s2—the largest value in the history of solar observations.

“The strong overexpansion and very high lateral expansion in this extreme coronal mass ejection that we derived from the unique set of space-space data, together with the fast shock wave it initiated, is most probably a key ingredient for the production of the widespread solar energetic particles associated with this event, which almost filled the whole heliosphere,” says the first author of the study, Professor Astrid Veronig.
