Here today, Naturally my Quichote mission of trying to breakthough the wall of nonsense build by the supposed smartest men on the planet is continuing as chinks start to appear, their arrogant stupidity set us back decades if not more, electro-magnetics is clean energy and would have delivered us not only flying cars, but flying saucers aswell and who knows a pathway into other dimensions..Meanwhile The Expanse's Leviathan Wakes and starts wagging it's tail....

Deep pits on Mars are not easy to explain.
Previous Picture of the Day articles discuss many unusual formations on Mars. Craters, canyons, dunes and many other features do not readily correspond to contemporary theories about their evolution. Dunes that do not align with the direction of the prevailing winds and that do not show any movement after years of observation are odd. Other anomalies include crater rims with steep vertical walls and kilometer-deep canyons with no outflow channels. On the slopes of Olympus Mons, often mistakenly called the largest volcano in the Solar System, are several large holes that seem to be hundreds of meters deep. On Earth some volcanoes have similar “pit craters” on their flanks. Since the pits on Mars are not connected with fumaroles or lava chambers, they are thought to form when gas pockets collapse, leaving sinkholes behind. However, with the recent awareness that plasma is involved with volcanic eruptions on Earth, it should also be considered when dealing with Mars.Volcanoes on Mars (provided such eruptions took place) are thought to be millions, if not billions, of years old. If the “skylights” are that old, surely they would not look like they were dug into the surface a short time ago.
Olympus Mons has all the characteristics of a lightning blister, or fulgamite, but on an incredible scale. If small blisters have been found on spark arrestors after a lightning strike on Earth, one can imagine the size of the burst that hit Mars and formed the Tharsis Montes region – Olympus Mons in particular. The giant mound is covered with raised dendritic ridges. Its caldera are chiseled out of its summit, and the same dendritic ridges outlining its foundation are molded into its cliff faces. Craters and pits vary enormously, but they all possess the features of electric spark machining. An electric arc will contact a surface at 90 degrees, and will typically consist of one or more discharge channels that rotate. If the arc remains stationary for a period, it will carve out a circular crater. Most of the surface material will be lifted away and the edge will have a sharp rim. If the current passing through the surface varies, the depth and diameter of the crater may vary, causing terraces to be cut into the walls. According to a recent press release, one particular pit is located in Tractus Fossae near Tharsis Montes. The HiRise camera, so often mentioned in these pages, captured an image that was looking almost straight down into the bottom of the pit. As conventional aereological theories state, it is a “collapsed lava tube”. Since no volcanic activity of any kind has ever been seen on Mars, the idea lacks weight. Given the electrical scarring that is so evident, Electric Universe theory ought to be given credence.
In the 21st century, the technological wonders of the Space Age bring unprecedented data within astronomers' reach. However, as Thunderbolts contributor Mel Acheson notes, scientific blindness can lead to loss of potential data, and of new understanding.
A profound such example was offered by renowned astrophysicist Thomas Gold in his book, The Deep Hot Biosphere. Gold writes, “The invention of the seismograph meant that it was no longer necessary to experience an earthquake directly, or to interview someone who had, in order to assemble data on the event... [Eyewitness reports] were no longer believed to hold any value for the scientific venture.” Gold proceeds to describe many eyewitness reports from ancient times to modern. A constellation of recurring phenomena becomes apparent: “Eruptions, flames, noises, odors, asphyxiation, fountains of water and mud...” often occur before the quake.
Gold documents several incidents where people were able to evacuate their villages and towns a few hours before an earthquake because they were alerted by odors, fogs, or unusual animal behavior. So-called folklore has actually saved many lives; seismographs and stress meters have yet to achieve one correct prediction-probably because they’re measuring only effects, not causes. In this Space News, Mel explains why all inquirers into reality, including and especially scientists, must be careful never to become trapped in "the rut of the nearest convenient theory," and to remain willing to come up for another look.

The Expanse is a series of science fiction novels (and related novellas and short stories) by James S. A. Corey, the joint pen name of authors Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck. The first novel, Leviathan Wakes, was nominated for the Hugo Award for Best Novel in 2012. The series as a whole was nominated for the Best Series Hugo Award in 2017.
As of 2019, The Expanse is made up of eight novels and eight shorter works - three short stories and five novellas. At least nine novels were planned, as well as two more novellas. The series was adapted for television by the Syfy Network, also under the title of The Expanse, then they dropped the ball despite the succes of the series, i suspect the whole thing got too serious (expensive) so once again Syfy network proved they can't handle success. Anyway fans were outraged and got Amazon Prime to pick it up for a fourth and fifth series and considering the mountain of money Jeff Bezos sits on i suspect several more as long as the fans keep cheering.
The Expanse is set in a future in which humanity has colonized much of the Solar System, but does not have interstellar travel. In the asteroid belt and beyond, tensions are rising between Earth's United Nations, Mars, and the outer planets.
The series initially takes place in the Solar System, using many real locations such as Ceres and Eros in the asteroid belt, several moons of Jupiter, with Ganymede and Europa the most developed, and small science bases as far out as Phoebe around Saturn and Titania around Uranus, as well as well-established domed settlements on Mars and the Moon.
As the series progresses, humanity gains access to thousands of new worlds by use of the ring, an artificially sustained Einstein-Rosen bridge or wormhole, created by a long dead alien race. The ring in our solar system is two AU from the orbit of Uranus, and passing through it leads to a hub of starless space approximately one million kilometers across, with more than 1,300 other rings, each with a star system on the other side. In the center of the hub, which is also referred to as the "slow zone", an alien space station controls the gates and can also set instantaneous speed limits on objects inside of the hub as a means of defense.
The story is told through multiple main point-of-view characters. There are two POV characters in the first book and four in books 2 through 5. In the sixth and seventh books, the number of POV characters increases, with several characters having only one or two chapters. Tiamat's Wrath returns to a more limited number with five. Every book also begins and ends with a prologue and epilogue told from a unique character's perspective.

Leviathan Wakes was nominated for the 2012 Hugo Award for Best Novel and the 2012 Locus Award for Best Science Fiction Novel. The novel was adapted for television in 2015 as the first season of The Expanse by Syfy.
Leviathan Wakes is set in a future in which humanity has colonized much of the Solar System. Earth, governed by the United Nations, and the Martian Congressional Republic act as competing superpowers, maintaining an uneasy military alliance in order to exert dual hegemony over the peoples of the Asteroid belt, known as "Belters." Belters, whose bodies tend to be thin and elongated due to their low-gravity environment, carry out the gritty, blue-collar work that provides the system with essential natural resources, but they are largely marginalized by the rest of the Solar System. The Outer Planets Alliance (OPA), a network of loosely-aligned militant groups, seeks to combat the Belt's exploitation at the hands of the "Inners," who, in turn, have branded the OPA a terrorist organization. The story is told from the point of view of Belter detective Joe Miller, and Earther Jim Holden.
James Holden is XO (Executive Officer) of an ice miner making runs from the rings of Saturn to the mining stations of the Belt. When he and his crew stumble upon a derelict ship, the Scopuli, they find themselves in possession of a secret they never wanted. A secret that someone is willing to kill for – and kill on a scale unfathomable to Jim and his crew. War is brewing in the system unless he can find out who left the ship and why.
Detective Miller is looking for a girl. One girl in a system of billions, but her parents have money and money talks. When the trail leads him to the Scopuli and rebel sympathizer Holden, he realizes that this girl may be the key to everything.
Holden and Miller must thread the needle between the Earth government, the Outer Planet revolutionaries, and secretive corporations – and the odds are against them. But out in the Belt, the rules are different, and one small ship can change the fate of the universe.
