The Electric Sky
by Donald E. Scott

A highly readable yet comprehensive introduction to Electric Universe theory for nonspecialists and the non-mathematical, starting from the basics. The last 150 years have seen immense progress in the understanding of electrical phenomena, but the mainstream cosmology taught today remains essentially a theory of gravity, rooted in concepts originating from the time of Newton and Laplace. To explain the observations of modern astronomy and the colossal energies involved, it is forced to invoke a raft of hypothetical, exotic, and unobservable entities involving near-infinite concentrations matter to focus the weakest force known to physics. Yet for more than half a century, an alternative theory model has been available that acknowledges electrical forces as the dominant influence shaping the universe, based on well-understood principles that can be observed and demonstrated in any plasma laboratory.

Topics covered include: the problems with the standard model, and the non-science of blind faith in untestable mathematical models; pioneering figures and history of electrical universe theory; the nature and behavior of electrical plasmas; evidence of electrical discharges and scarring on planets and moons; shortcomings of the generally accepted thermonuclear model of the Sun, and how electrical processes fit the observations better; reinterpretation of the Hertzsprung-Russell diagram in electric-star terms; galactic electric currents and the formation of galaxies and galaxy strings; questions concerning the conventional interpretation of redshift.

[Warning: This book could demolish a big part of everything you thought you knew.]

"I really loved this book. It is causing me to rethink a great deal of my own work. I am convinced that The Electric Sky deserves the widest possible readership."

-- Gerrit L. Verschuur, Ph.D., University of Manchester

"[A]n exciting story about how a small group of physicists, engineers, and other scientists have challenged the establishment--the 'big science' astronomers who are reluctant to listen to anyone outside their own elite circle."

-- Lewis E. Franks, Ph.D., Stanford University, Fellow of IEEE, Professor Emeritus and Head of the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering, University of Massachusetts.

"Gravity was the focus or 20th century astronomy. For the 21st century, it will be electromagnetism and plasmas in addition."

-- Timothy E. Eastman, Ph.D., head of space physics and astrophysics groups at Raytheon.

"It is gratifying to see the work of my mentor, Nobel Laureate Hannes Alfven, enumerated with such clarity."

-- Anthony L. Peratt, Ph.D., Fellow of IEEE, member of Associate Laboratory Directorate, Los Alamos National Laboratory
