I’ve just watched Monty Child’s update of the SAFIRE project at the 2016 EU conference recently held in the US. Safire is an experiment to discover and understand the working of the sun using electrified plasma in the laboratory. The test chamber houses a small spherical iron anode at its centre and two copper cathodes. The chamber can be evacuated and an enormous DC electric current power source is used to create the plasma in the chamber. It is high tech and expertly designed with a full suite of measurement aparatues etc. It was commissioned only a couple of days before the conference, and demonstrated to work.
The test experiment involved a low voltage variable current mode to generate electric plasma in the chamber and the results were startling. The following is imagery captured from the video presentation and shows glow-mode plasma starting to envelop the spherical anode.
This second image capture is when the plasma totally enveloped the spherical iron anode.
This third image was copied from the Wattsupwiththat post on the present day image of the sun minus all its sunspots for solar cycle 24, the lowest in nearly 200 years.
Monty also mentioned that a necessary production of a nuclear fusion reaction is the production of gamma rays. Apparently the Sun, our Sun, does not produce gamma radiation which it should if the standard model is correct.
Does this mean the Sun has an iron core? No, because we have no way of ever knowing this, nor can we specify what represents the core, outer core and mantle of the Earth for similar reasons.
Whatever, this experimental result shows no disparities with the electric sun model.
So it’s likely the sun is electrically powered; which changes things.
