Astronomer Craig Wheeler says current theories for type Ia supernovae are wrong. Wheeler proposes a new supernova theory that the most common M dwarfs and white dwarf stars form binary pairs having opposite charged magnetic poles that attract. Ultimately they become "tidally" and magnetically locked into a rotation in which the same side of each always faces the other, like our moon, and the magnetic poles point directly at one another. The larger white dwarf pulls material that builds up on a single spot that points directly back at the smaller M dwarf, suddenly irradiating it entirely in a supernova explosion. Both stars could explode when the Birkeland currents in the poles connect together.
Tycho supernova remnant(Feature story)Supernova star cores can never be found, not even in the nearby Tycho that is only 10,000 - 16,000 light years away, and 15-30 LY diameter. Craig Wheeler says that the spectra in supernova shows that current gravitational theories are wrong. An electromagnetic theory that the magnetic poles lock together, is proven with the earth and moon. There's no need to speculate further on how gravity could be involved, by calling it by another name, "tidal locking." Theoretical gravity waves remain undetected. The electric field is called the tidal gravity component in relativity, and electric and magnetic fields exist together. Clearly this should be in the hands of plasma astrophysicists, not gravity theorists.
|Magnetic fields become amplified in space, seen in the X-ray stripes of supernova Tycho. Trapped electrons spiral around tangled magnetic field lines and emit X-rays. X-ray flares near our galaxy's core are not produced by a black hole.|
