# Planets as Capacitors... Is the Asteroid Belt the Result of Capicitor failure?

I do not pretend to be a space scientist or physicist in anyway shape or form, but do have an abnormal interest in all things "spacey".

This quote from another thread explains capcitance better than I could and also gave me a thought.

Could the asteroid belt be the result of a "blown" capaitor during an alignment?

Again my friend below will explain the theory

I am an electrical engineer currently working in the information technology field. I have a reasonably good understanding of electric charge, magnetics, and capacitance. This is a bit technical but I would like to discuss charge and capacitance in order to provide more complete information of some of the phenomenon that is expected to occur. A model of a capacitor includes two charge plates separated by a dielectric. Simply stated, the plates are conductors of electricity in parallel to each other separated by a dielectric (non-conducting) surface which prevents current from flowing between the two plates. These two plates separated by a dielectric form a capacitor and that capacitor can hold electric charge. If you hook one plate to the positive side of a battery, and the other plate to the negative side of a battery, you will charge the capacitor. The capacitor will stay charged after you remove it from the battery because positive charge is attracted to negative charge and that energy holds them in place across the dielectric Dielectric Capacitor Some good electrical insulators include glass and a vacuum. We are told that space is a vacuum and that is partially correct. Normally space is a vacuum and s a good insulator which prevents electrical charge from flowing. Now take a sun which is a massive nuclear reactor and place it in a center area and surround it with planets revolving around it in the dielectric of space. Each of those planets will pick up energy (positive and/or negative) from that massive nuclear reactor. The massive nuclear reactor produces energy of all types (light, magnetic, and various radiation some of which may be harmful to life and other types may not). Therefore each planet would tend to have a different electrical charge. Potential voltages between planets may be incredible and the relative charges may have a natural attraction to jump from one planet to another. This may not be possible while space is a good insulator but if space becomes cluttered with charged (both negative and positively charged) gas (hydrogen and helium) molecules, its ability to conduct electricity may increase and allow charge to flow between heavenly bodies. This would tend to happen as our solar system enters the magnetic ribbon in space. One effect of this may be birkeland currents. and helium) molecules, its ability to conduct electricity may increase and allow charge to flow between heavenly bodies. This would tend to happen as our solar system enters the magnetic ribbon in space.

Could travelling through such a highly charged region of space, during an alignment of all the planets make the planet with the least capacitance explode??

Just to add and to make myself clearer

If the solar system travels through a highly magnetised region of space as we are currently, there is no longer a total vaccum

This enables the planets to create a circuit with each other, sharing their electrical charge.

If ALL of the planets are aligned during traveling through this magnetised cloud in a thick part of it, then the whole solar system could create a circuit sharing an incredible amount of energy, and like a fuse blowing, the planet with the least capacitance at the centre of all of this energy could blow.

Is this what created the asteroid field?

Is this what made Mars desolate?

Explanation: S&F!

Io (moon): Interaction with Jupiters magnetosphere [wiki]

Io plays a significant role in shaping the Jovian magnetic field. The magnetosphere of Jupiter sweeps up gases and dust from Io's thin atmosphere at a rate of 1 tonne per second.

Jupiters Electric Moon Io. (By Michael Goodspeed Thunderbolts.info 11-13-7) [rense.com]

Prior to the Galileo probe's 1996 arrival in the Jovian system, electrical theorist Wallace Thornhill registered these advance claims:

* the vents of the "volcanic" plumes will be much hotter than lava;
* the plumes are the jets of cathode arcs, and they do not explode from a volcanic vent but move around and erode the periphery of dark areas (called "lava lakes" by planetary geologists);
* the "lava lakes" themselves are merely the solid surface of Io etched electrically by cathode arcs and exposed from beneath the "snow" deposited by continuous discharge activity. Therefore, they will not reveal the expected heat of a recent lava flow.

Personal Disclosure: I hope that helps!

Thank you for that!

As happenstance I was up until 3am watching a documentary on this very thing.

That is what prompted me to ask the question.

Seeing these interactions on a smaller scale goes a long way to prove the theory.

And if true.

Then the danger we face is greater than ANYTHING we can imagine.

I also find it interesting how ironised Mars is in terms of iron content on the suface that gives its red appearance.

Could the Mars surface composition provide us with clues of other catastrophic electrical interactions? Iron is a conductor after all, is the surface the result of electro-chemical reactions under high voltage?? And is the dust storms the result of a planetary residual charge?

Who knows?

Hmmm...maybe why Comet Holmes entered the solar system and BLEW UP in the Asteroid Belt becoming the largest object in our solar system?

Capacitor theory? It couldn't pass a certain point?

Then how did Comet Elenin get past that midpoint?...then again they see "its intelligently steered".....maybe it's avoided the energy spot Comet Holmes could not?

But how? It would have to have a negative charge to the charge causing the capacitor explosion theory.....

How would it have a negative charge? There's the big question.....or doesn't it? And it is intelligently steered????

If we set off nuclear bombs around Mars and Venus we could give them their own Radiation Belts like our Van Allen Belt. This would DEFLECT the suns energy and send it into their poles giving them a stronger gravity....they would develop a shield around them and would see an atmosphere form. Venus's acidic atmosphere would be converted due to the electrical activity that would change the compounds.

We can terra form other planets and make them habitable....but then you run into your theory...Would Earth face more energy and become the Capacitor that blows.....

On what you said about terra forming..

Maybe the energetic atmospheres of these planets are the result of fully charged capacitors without a circuit with which to release its energy? Perhaps surface conditions would change when circuit is made and stored electrical charge is released?

The energies would be unfathomable, and accumaltion could easily destroy the planet with the least capacitance.

As for the steering of comets. There is no sure fire way to see local variations in electrical interactions. As we are in this magnetised cloud, there will be parts of the cloud denser than others which will have varying effects on the comet?

After reading this thread on the rumbling sounds in the sky that have been reported globally

Maybe they are the results of these planetary interactions when in circuit with each other for brief periods?

Would make more sense than alien motherships!

I think that ancient cultures knew and prepared for this too.

I think that the pyramids that just happen to located on the same lattitude around the world, almost like a network, may have something to do with it.

Tesla himself built his coils using the pyramids as a model.

Then there is thr absolute obssesion of our forefathers with astronomy and that they layed everything they knew out on monolithic structures designed to stay the test of time.

On a 3600 year cycle or whatever, you would not write it down on paper but on the face of the earth itself on huge structures saying "look at me"

I just cant help but think that it is all connected somehow..

I just wanted to add that the total mass of the asteroid belt is 3.0×10^21 to 3.6×10^21 kilograms which is about 4% of the mass of the moon so i don't think its logical to assume that there was once a plantet where the belt is located.

Less mass= less capacitance, just proves the point even more!

You also have to account for missing mass that has been knocked out of the asteroid belt by collisions with other asteroids and comets passing through our solar system.

ETA

Some of the mass of an exploding planet would have enough velocity to escape the solar system too
