The electric interpretation suggests that continuous electrical arcing has etched the surface of Io, creating flat plains and bluffs with scalloped edges. In much the same way, electric arcs are used in industry to machine metallic surfaces to a high level of precision. The most recent etching in this region has exposed the dark surface below the falling sulfur dioxide snow, and in the lower picture we see two bright spots where it appears that arcs are continuing to extend the excavated area in two directions.

...but I have
twothree question, if you don't mind.
1 - do the proponents of the "lightning" theory have an explanation for the missing side effects of such large discharges?
2 - do they have any explanation for the source of the difference in potential that provoked the discharge?
3 - they show many tests in lab with metal, are there any videos showing the results of electric discharges on a surface similar to Mars' surface, like a silica based powder?
Thanks in advance.
Paul LaViolette has developed a new theory of gravity that replaces the deeply flawed theory of general relativity. Predicted from subquantum kinetics, it accounts for the electrogravitic coupling phenomenon discovered by Townsend Brown and may explain the advanced aerospace propulsion technology utilized in the B-2 bomber.
