Supernovas, neutron stars and black holes 'break the rules'

In an interview with Wal Thornhill, Chief Science Advisor of The Thunderbolts Project, we explore a number of intriguing space science discoveries, including supernovae, "neutron stars," "black holes" and "white dwarf" stars which appear to break the expected rules of standard cosmology.

Are these "weird" objects really rule breakers, or can we find better explanations from plasma cosmology and the Electric Universe?

Like all fantasy theories of astrophysics and cosmology, the fantasy theory of neutron stars is full of absurd notions and so many contradictions. But that is not surprising at all. When you construct a hypothetical physics theory based only on theoretical mathematical formulation, especially in the field of astrophysics, usually, if not always, such theory comes out to be wrong, if not in a direct contradiction to physical reality. In the current consensus model, a star is a gravitationally bound celestial body. It is heated by the process of thermonuclear fusion at its core and the variation of its luminosity is attributed to mechanical pulsations. But, in reality the luminosity of any star is determined exclusively by the strength of its magnetic field, both the internal and external magnetic fields. The strength of the overall magnetic field of any star depends on the internal structure of the star (the type of the star), its location and the external energy supply. The stronger is the magnetic field, the higher is luminosity and the higher is the velocity of the ejected particles from its surface. If we look at our star, we see that the variation of the Sun’s luminosity is correlated with the current density at the corona. During solar maximum when the Sun’s magnetic field is strong the corona is bright while during solar minimum it is dim. Additionally, the ejected particles from the Sun’s surface, such as coronal mass ejections and solar wind, propagate with higher velocity during a solar maximum. Therefore, the periodic variations in the luminosity of the massive stars are determined by the intensity of their magnetic fields and the oscillations of the external energy supply.
