New Surprises at the Heliospheric Boundary

Video below from

Data making it back from the Voyager spacecraft which are now reaching the outer reaches of our solar system is conflicting with some established theories of astrophysics... pretty interesting stuff:
The NASA spacecraft Voyager 1 has provided scientists on earth with a series of theory-shattering surprises. The probes Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 are now exploring the outer boundary of the Sun’s domain, called the heliosphere. What the probes have encountered are not what the astronomers expected. Through a series of surprises, the astronomers have openly expressed their complete bafflement over the Voyager data.

Here we see a different part of the academe where members will actually alter their thinking and question their previously held beliefs when faced with new conflicting measured objective data.

Of course this is not the case within the monetarist department of the academe of economics which seems to be currently led by human morons, and is unfortunately very influential in current economic policymaking.

In any case, MNE readers can here enjoy the video and see some true scientists in action from another part of the academe for a change...

The source for this video are proponents of another cosmological theory. I'll have to do some research to see what other astronomers are saying.

I think they espouse what they term "electric universe" theories...

Here is the wired article:
