Electric Universe: Electric Arcs On Jupiter’s Moon Io

YT description: Planetary scientists tell us that Jupiter’s moon Io is the most volcanically active body in the solar system. Yet world-renowned scientists, including astrophysicist Thomas Gold and plasma physicist Anthony Peratt, proposed decades ago that Io’s so-called volcanic plumes are actually focused, high-energy electrical discharges. In this episode of Space News, we discuss a new discovery that again puts the volcanism theory in doubt, and we provide a comprehensive overview of the electrical interpretation.
