Hello, now Babylon's in Ashes but we humans don't loose our hubris that easy after all we are used to celebrate ignorance..Anyway the story continues......
Here today, naturally my 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 i got a request to continue the Expanse, and as this is one of the greatest SF series of our days and within it Abaddon's Gate one of it's highlights no reason to stop there then, so i won't...N Joy..

Before Einstein created his unique theorems on relativity, deflating Newton’s theories on gravity, Nikola Tesla posited the idea that electricity and energy were responsible for almost all cosmic phenomena. Tesla saw energy and electricity as an “incompressible fluid” of constant quantity that could neither be destroyed nor created.
If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency, and vibration.
— Nikola Tesla
Throughout human history the planet Mars has held mankind’s rapt attention.
When telescopes were sufficiently advanced by the late nineteenth century, the red planet seasonally fogged over with dust storms. After such storms it appeared to darken in spots with what was thought to be vegetation. But when the Mariner 4, 6, and 7 flybys of the late 60s and the Mariner 9 orbiter in 1971 and Viking I and II landings in 1976 showed a barren, lifeless terrain, with no evidence of even the lowliest forms of vegetation, the “greening” of Mars was thought to result from the inorganic oxidation and reduction of ferruginous soils on the planet’s surface. This brief essay proposes a speculative mechanism for such a transformation.
Periodically the inclement winds on Mars are estimated to gale in excess of 200 miles per hour (>300 kph), sending dust particles high into the thin atmosphere. This atmosphere, consisting mainly of carbon dioxide with traces of water vapor, is less than one percent the air pressure we enjoy on planet Earth.
Thus, airlifted and suspended dust particles themselves are mainly microscopic, taking days or weeks to settle. But the extreme velocity of the surface winds also blows larger particles about to collect in drifts and to scour the landscape. And, over periods measured in eons, many features have been eroded and smoothed to show a wasteland marked by a grand canyon (Valles Marineris), scattered craters, an enormous extinct volcano (Olympus Mons) among several others, and numerous other gross outcroppings, but the planet’s surface is largely devoid of finer detail. However, a few craters do show little evidence of erosion and may be relatively recent events in Martian geological history.
Mars rotates diurnally in approximately 24 hours and 40 minutes, and its axis is tilted at an angle of some 25°, not dissimilar in either respect to Earth. It revolves in its orbit about the Sun in 1.88 Earth years, and consequently it has much longer seasons. But every spring in the northern hemisphere, there is a partial melting or sublimation of the polar ice cap, preceded by keening windstorms, which in turn is followed by a gradual darkening of the Martian landscape extending down toward the equator. It was this darkening—this “greening”—which gave credence to the idea that vegetation likely existed on Mars.
The illustration of the microcosmic Martian landscape in the quart bottle looks for all the world like a Ludek Pesek painting in miniature, replete with ruddy arroyos, canyons, and peaks, but with a darker greenish detritus in simulated moraines. The particles which make up this scene are actually the Buell dust product of a high temperature rotary kiln. They comprise agglomerated microspheres of fused magnesium oxide (periclase) of fairly uniform size (20-40 μm), with patina-like coatings of red (oxidized) and green (reduced) iron oxides, as determined by the McCrone Research Institute of Chicago. Under microscopic examination, the colors appear more reddish-orange and yellowish-green in hue.
One of the more interesting features of the mixture of these microspheres is that the red ones are magnetically permeable while the green are not, being easily separated by a teflon-coated stirring magnet despite the tenuous coating of the iron moiety. It was this peculiar property that was first noted in the mid-1960s and which drew my attention to the phenomenon associated with the then-known weather patterns on Mars. Namely, if the cohesiveness of the reddish particles, inherent in their magnetic permeability, were in any respect related to the occurrences on Mars, then such Martian particulates themselves would exhibit similar permeability as well as weak magnetism. In fact, in 1976 the Viking landers found as much as 4% magnetic permeability of the Martian soil, which was considerably higher than expected.
Other than iron itself, we know that magnetite (Fe3O4), maghemite (Fe2O3), and pyrrhotite (Fe5S6 to Fe16S17) are magnetically permeable, although their colors tend to range from yellowish brown to black. However, the surface of Mars from the viewpoint of both the Viking and 1997 Surveyor probes has been a rather uniform ruddy color. And yet, the airborne magnetically permeable particulates were found to have a darker albedo (reflectance) than the soil samples, which may merely indicate that the airborne particles did not have the ruddy overlay which heavily coated the soil samples.
The postulated microspherules on Mars are conjectured to come in two varieties, an oxidized orange-red ferric iron and a reduced yellow-green ferrous iron assortment. The ferric iron spherules would be magnetically permeable while the ferrous would not. The significance of the two kinds of spherules is that the magnetic cohesiveness of the permeable ferric glasslike particles would impart the characteristic red color to the surface of Mars, as well as contributing to its comparative stickiness, while the greenish ferrites would give the deceptive impression of vegetation growing in select regions of the planet following the violent windstorms of a Martian winter, as well as contributing to the appearance of moraine-like flows in various arroyos.
These windstorms occur approximately every two of our own years, and although the blustering gales are extremely tenuous they race around the planet in excess of 200 mph and raise voluminous dust clouds which obscure the surface (an early Soviet space probe landed during one of these storms and ceased operating within two hours). When these winds ultimately subside, there is a notable “greening,” or at least a darkening of the planet—a phenomenon which was first attributed something over a century ago to the growth of vegetation. Thus, the false foliage might be more of a physical event than a chemical one, much less a biotic episode. However, for purposes of this speculation, oxidation-reduction processes effected by solar radiation and the Martian atmosphere are expected to contribute significantly to the anomalous color changes.
An early in situ experiment to discover biota in Martian samples found an anomalous oxidation process that was attributed to peroxides in or on the soil. It still isn’t clear to this author whether this was due to vagaries of the analyzing instrument, an isolated non-reproducible incident, or solar-induced oxide enhancement of the Martian soil. It is, of course, well-known that ultraviolet radiation can dissociate otherwise well-behaved molecules into higher energy states to form such peroxide molecules.
I opt in favor of this for at least two reasons: Peroxide reactions, especially in the presence of activating ultraviolet light, would favor the conversion of hematite or the hydrated limonite into magnetite. Secondly, magnetite might be reduced in the presence of peroxide to maghemite, which itself can exist in a magnetic or nonmagnetic (hematite) state. This is because, as is well-known to almost every bench analyst who’s dirtied his or her hands as a wet-chemist, under certain conditions peroxides can act as either oxidizing or reducing agents. The exotic conditions on Mars certainly qualify for an unusual laboratory environment on a planetary scale.
Such peroxides on Mars would most probably come from the dissociation of the CO2 or sparse water vapor in the atmosphere. Moreover, the disturbance of the windstorms, abetted by the otherwise anomalous peroxide reduction of hematite to the ferrous state (FeO), perhaps might also—if accompanied by water from the poles—convert mineral iron compounds to the nonmagnetic greenish ferrous hydroxide or even to the darker ferric hydroxide, geothite.
The origin of these hypothetical microspheres would most likely be in some ancient disaster that wracked the planet, where an asteroidal impact or volcanic event, or both, brecciated the surface and boiled off both atmosphere and ocean, leaving a glassy vestige of microscopic tektites on the ground and very little residual airmass.
The speculation that Mars is covered by microspherules of glassy particles stems from observations of earthbound samples that have experienced extraordinary thermal conditions. Based on the geohistory of Mars as it is currently surmised, it is anticipated that such microspheres may be primarily composed of refractory minerals other than iron, in either amorphous or crystalline forms, and imbued with a patina of mineralized iron compounds to impart their characteristic coloration to the sands of Mars.

In recent months, according to a number of scientific reports, the dusty winds and sand dune formations on the planet Mars have grown even more mysteries. In this episode, we explore why Electric Universe geology may hold the key to resolving both the mysterious processes in Mars' past, and those happening today.

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 nomi
nated 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.

Babylon's Ashes is a science fiction novel by James S. A. Corey, the pen name of Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck, and the sixth book in their The Expanse series. The title of the novel was announced in early July 2015 and the cover and brief synopsis were revealed on September 14, 2015
Following the events of Nemesis Games, the so-called Free Navy, made up of Belters using stolen military ships, has been growing ever bolder. After the crippling attacks on Earth and the Martian Navy, the Free Navy turns its attention to the colony ships headed for the ring gates and the worlds beyond. The relatively defenseless ships are left to fend for themselves, as neither Earth nor Mars are powerful enough to protect them. James Holden and the crew of the Rocinante are called upon once again by what remains of the UN and Martian governments to go to Medina Station, now in the hands of the Free Navy, in the ring station. On the other side of the rings an alien threat is growing; the Free Navy may be the least of humanity's problems.
