[quote:Anonymous Coward 14874606:MV8xOTI4ODE0XzM1NTgyNjM1XzVFOEY0NUE1] [quote:aether:MV8xOTI4ODE0XzM1NTgyMzg3XzU1QkUzRkE5] [b][color=blue]Electromagnetic Monsters[/color][/b] [Quote:observation][b]Extreme magnetic fields in space are said to be caused by the high-speed rotation of neutron stars[/b] Several previous Picture of the Day articles discuss the problem of neutron stars and how they affect the progress of astronomical investigation. According to electric star theory, neutron stars belong with fantasy creatures like invisible pink unicorns. Deficits in gravity-only cosmology made the neutron star hypothesis necessary in order to defend gravity’s ostensibly endless powers. Neutron stars are supposed to be the answer to pulsar behavior. Pulsars are stars whose brightness fluctuates over a short time span. Pulsars are important to astrophysical models because they are used as measuring tools. Those with “known” distance, coupled with variations in their luminosity, are thought to be road markers in space, so that the distances to other stars can be determined. Pulsars are described as “light houses” with beams of energy concentrated at specific points. Consensus gravitational theory demands that a rotational mechanism is responsible for the pulsations, so when the spin of a pulsar brings its beam inline with telescopes on Earth, a flash of light is visible. However, the rotation rates of some pulsars are found to be once per second or less (even with many times the mass of our Sun). Only a super dense material like that in a neutron star is thought sufficient to withstand those rotational speeds. Neutron star matter is a hypothetical material that has had all of its electrons smashed down into the nuclei, where the protons and electrons combine into neutrons........................[/Quote] http://www.thunderbolts.info/wp/daily-tpod/ [/quote] http://www.godlikeproductions.com/forum1/message1692314/pg1#27970284 [quote:Anonymous Coward 865798:MV8xNjkyMzE0X0I4QTUyOTEw] [i]Astronomers have found the brightest and youngest example yet of a fast-spinning star, suggesting that the extremely luminous versions of these super-dense objects [b]may be far more common than thought...[/b] :fermipulsar: ..The pulsar's extreme brightness and youth challenge current ideas about how super-bright millisecond pulsars form and how widespread they may be, researchers said... ...When a mass as great as our sun's is packed into a space the size of a city, [b]the conserved angular momentum causes the resulting neutron star to spin very rapidly and to emit a ray of high-energy light that sweeps around like a lighthouse beam.[/b][/i] [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ac00FRx-_R0[/youtube] http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ac00FRx-_R0 [i][b]This light appears to pulse because astronomers see the beam only when it's pointed at Earth.[/b] "Normal" pulsars rotate at a rate between 7 and 3,750 revolutions per minute, [color=blue][b]but millisecond pulsars can spin much faster — up to 43,000 rotations per minute...[/b][/color] J1823-3021A also appears to have a much stronger magnetic field than other millisecond pulsars.[b] The exotic object's combination of characteristics is likely to have astronomers scratching their heads,[/b] Freire said. ...[b]"It challenges the way we believe millisecond pulsars form," he said.

An X-2 class solar flare recently missed a direct impact with Earth.
Heliophysicists classify solar flares according to their brightness in X-ray wavelengths. C-class flares are the smallest on the scale, with X-ray measurements in the 10^-6 watts per square meter range (W/m^2), while X-class flares can exceed 10^-4 W/m^2. Why is that important?
An X-2 solar flare has enough energy to overload satellite circuits and disrupt other forms of communication should its full force be directed at Earth.
Modern astronomers believe that solar flares, or coronal mass ejections (CME), occur when magnetic reconnection events in the Sun’s atmosphere cause a short circuit in magnetic field lines. According to one theory, “magnetic energy” then accelerates the superheated gases into space. Although no one knows what “magnetic reconnection” is, it is the only explanation offered................
