James M. McCanney, M.S. (Physics), gave a two-hour long, commercial-free radio broadcast Monday night, November 26, at 10:00 p.m. to Midnight, Pacific Standard Time. He talked about Comet Holmes, which, in case you haven’t heard, is now twice the diameter of the Sun (the coma part of the comet, not the nucleus.) To hear the archived broadcast, visit this page:
McCanney subscribes to the electric universe point of view and has published several books and scientific papers. He claims to be the originator of the Plasma Discharge Comet Model and has some interesting information about the electrical nature of the universe, solar system and more especially, comets. Comet Holmes pretty much, in my opinion, is the nail in the coffin of the standard Dirty Snowball Comet Model so what McCanney has to say helps to explain the “anomalous” flare up of Holmes.
As the faithful are to be looking for the signs of the times and as there will be great signs in the heavens, astronomy should be of interest to all LDS. If you have interest in the plasma model of the universe, have been following with interest the very large and very fast flare-up of Comet Holmes, or are just watching for the prophesied signs, you may want to listen to the above program.
