Io, The Electrified Moon

Take a good look at the volcano on Jupiter’s moon Io.  These images were taken by the New Horizons spacecraft as it swung past the moon back in 2007.



Does the large volcano look like any volcano you’ve ever seen before?

volcanoWhere’s the ash?  Where’s the smoke?  Where’s the rivers of lava?  Why isn’t the ground under the plume glowing from molten chunks of rock? Where are the pyroclastic flows?  Why is the plume made up of filaments instead of clouds?  Why is the plume glowing blue?  (more images here)

Of course, NASA has some questionable theoretical reasons for these oddities, such as claiming the plume is blue because of dust in the air.  Does it look like there is a dusty haze around the moon to you?  Why doesn’t this “dust” discolor our view of the surface?  Note that the plumes emit their own light.  This low light image taken while the moon is in complete darkness shows the plumes emitting their own light, as is the entire moon.  The whole moon is lit up in a faint auroral glow.

Io’s “volcanoes” exhibit some other interesting phenomena.  They have been observed to move around the surface and leave burn marks behind them.  Each time we come back to snap some pics of Io, the plumes are in a different location.  The journal article notes that the Prometheus plume has wandered 75 to 95 km west over the brief period of 20 years.  Ask yourself how a volcano manages to “wander” anywhere.

The plumes are also in the “wrong” locations according to NASA theories about how tidal forces from Jupiter supposedly turn the interior of Io into magma.  One NASA scientist notes, “the main thermal emission occurs about 40 degrees eastward of its expected positions.”

There’s also a problem with the amount of heat Io emits.  The same NASA article goes on to say:

A mystery has also emerged.  The team found that active volcanoes accounted for only about 60 percent of Io’s heat.  This component mostly emanates from flat-floored volcanic craters called paterae, a common feature on Io.  But where is the “missing” 40 percent?  “We are investigating the possibility that there are many smaller volcanoes that are hard, but not impossible, to detect,” said Veeder. “We are now puzzling over the observed pattern of heat flow.”  

There’s also a problem with the amount of heat the “volcanoes” themselves emit.  When the space probe Galileo passed by Io, it found the plumes to be so hot that it overloaded the sensors on the spacecraft.  The early estimates of heat from the plumes were so high that NASA had to go back and revise their models to make the results match their “theoretical limits.”

Scientists are claiming these eruptions are “ultramafic” – a type of eruption that we have never observed first hand. These types of eruptions are purely inferred, the same way dark matter is inferred.  They are purely hypothetical, based on chemical compositions of rock we have observed.  Of course, it’s possible that some other processes may have created those rocks besides magma from a volcanic eruption.

There is also a problem explaining the “footprint” of Io on Jupiter’s atmosphere.  Scientists surmise that the “volcanic” plumes of Io must be creating “charge separation” which supposedly is the cause of the observed electrical connection between Jupiter and Io which leads to the observed footprint.  However, it was later observed that the moons Ganymede and Europa, which have no “volcanoes,” also leave a footprint on the Jovian atmosphere.  This means the electrical connections cannot be caused by “volcanoes.”  The same process must be at work on all three.

That’s quite a few oddities for such a tiny moon.  All of these oddities point towards NASA’s theories about Io being fundamentally incorrect.

NASA makes the assumption that the “volcanoes” are actually volcanoes, and that they are spewing molten rock into the air.  Perhaps this fundamental assumption is wrong.

Many moons ago, some real scientists saw through the volcanic cloud of BS NASA was blowing onto the public and proposed a simple solution to all of these oddities.  They noted that Io was orbiting inside of Jupitier’s magnetosphere, a region of highly energized plasma that surrounds Jupiter.  Those scientists concluded that the so-called “volcanoes” of Io may not be volcanoes at all.  Instead, they surmised, that the plumes were actually electrical discharges created by the electrical potential of Jupiter’s magnetosphere.

Physicists Anthony Peratt of the Los Alamos National Laboratory and A. J. Dessler of Rice University write, “plasma arcs are expected because of the 10^6 A currents and 400 kV potentials generated by the flow past Io of a torus of relatively dense magnetospheric plasma.” Then they went on to compare the plumes to plasma arcs they observed in the laboratory.  Here’s what they observed:


Boy, that sure looks like the plumes on Io, hey? Guess what color they are.

What’s also interesting about Peratt and Dessler’s findings is that they are able to explain why the plumes change location and why they are located where they are on Io’s surface.  They can explain the heat issues.  They can explain the filaments. They can pretty much explain away all the inconsistencies that arise from the current NASA theories about Io.

Scientists have not directly observed any lava spewing into the air for any so-called “volcano” on Io.  

If you’re looking for close-up pictures of lava getting sprayed a hundred kilometers into the air from a volcanic vent, you’re not going to find any.  The only images you’ll find are colored in pictures of so-called lava fields.  The so-called lava fields are assumptions based on chemical composition and thermal data.

I love the caption beneath this NASA image, it reads, “the origin of Prometheus’ plume is a long-standing mystery: Where is the vent that is the source of all the gas and dust?”  Indeed, where is it?  I don’t see it.  Keep in mind you are looking down the barrel of a supposedly erupting volcano that is spraying “lava” 100 km into the air.

What’s interesting about that picture is we can see so-called “blue hazes” emanating from the top left of the crater walls.  This is precisely what we would expect to see with a discharging plasma focus.  The discharge will tend to be concentrated along the crater walls as it excavates them.

In this artistically colored in image of the erupting Tvashtar Catena “volcanic caldera chain,” notice the smooth crater floor, the even depth of depression, as well as the sharply scalloped crater walls.  Also notice the surrounding plateau that is not a part of any “volcano.”  Also take note of the fact there is no lava being sprayed tens of kilometers into the air. All four are hallmarks of electrical discharge machining. The discharge will carve out a long winding crater as it blasts its way across the surface.  This phenomena explains how a “volcano” is capable of “wandering.”

In 2013, Physicist Wal Thornhill gave an interview on this subject here.  Basing his research on the electric universe model of Io, Thornhill correctly predicted all of the oddities we later came to observe about Io back in 1999.

The plasma torus of Io, the plasma plumes of Io, the electrical connection of the Jovian moons to the Jovian atmosphere, the production of sulfur monoxide, the unusual heat issues, all can be solved by simply postulating the planet and moons are charged bodies moving through the weak electrical field of the Sun.  They are all part of a massive solar electrical circuit, which ultimately derives its power from the galaxy itself and beyond.  Only the addition of an external source of electrical power is capable of explaining all of these oddities in one coherent theory.

So why are scientists still scratching their heads?

Probably because they absolutely refuse to violate the first tenant of standard cosmology dogma – thou shalt never mention electricity in space.  Especially when it comes to the electrical excavation of planetary surfaces.

Io is being electrically machined as we speak.  It’s happening right now.  The surface of Io is being carved up by enormous plasma discharges.  This observation changes everything we think we know about the creation of mountains, canyons, and other geological surface features on all planetary bodies.

With this information in mind, sit back and enjoy a real scientific explanation for what happened to the surface of Mars:
