We are being told that the nucleus of comet Hale Bopp, an object too small even to show up in that photo -- outgassed a cloud of hydrogen gas 60 million miles across.
That's almost two thirds of the distance from the earth to the sun.
Is that plausible?
What is more, the outer layer of the largest object in the solar system, the sun, is a seething ocean of free electrons -- in other words, is electric. Yet we are told that the electromagnetic force plays no role in celestial events.
Incidentally, we are told these scientific truths by the same experts who cannot explain where lightning comes from.
If you believe these folks - -then I have some tropical real estate in Nome AK I'd like to show you.
