Look to Io and You Will Know

December 17, 2012

800px-Jupiter_magnetosphere_schematicJupiter’s moon Io is a very good example of the orbital dark matter forces that I believe created our moon and I tried to explain in an earlier post.  The black hole “dynamo” at the core of Jupiter has Io locked in the clutches of additional orbital dark matter, known as her plasma torus, which is orbiting through Io and Jupiter’s magnetic poles.  Io is extremely active which tells me she is in her early stages of creation with lots of orbital dark matter passing through her, creating low energy nuclear reactions within her and volcanic activity just like times when the Earth increases in dark matter density.

Like the other Galilean satellites of Jupiter and the Earth’s Moon, Io rotates synchronously with its orbital period, keeping one face nearly pointed toward Jupiter.  The strong entropic gravitational forces of that dark matter have grabbed ahold of her ordinary matter and have her locked in place.

“Jupiter’s magnetic field lines, which Io crosses, couples Io’s atmosphere and neutral cloud to Jupiter’s polar upper atmosphere through the generation of an electric current known as the Io flux tube.[52] This current produces an auroral glow in Jupiter’s polar regions known as the Io footprint, as well as aurorae in Io’s atmosphere. Particles from this auroral interaction act to darken the Jovian polar regions at visible wavelengths. The location of Io and its auroral footprint with respect to the Earth and Jupiter has a strong influence on Jovian radio emissions from our vantage point: when Io is visible, radio signals from Jupiter increase considerably.[26][52] The Juno mission, planned for the next decade, should help to shed light on these processes. The Jovian magnetic field lines that do get past Io’s ionosphere also induce an electric current, which in turn creates an induced magnetic field, within Io’s interior. Io’s induced magnetic field is thought to be generated within a partially molten, silicate magma ocean 50 kilometers beneath the moon’s surface.[60] Similar induced fields were found at the other Galilean satellites by Galileo, generated within liquid water oceans in the interiors of those moons.”

The magnetic fields and aural discharge will be found to be created by the charged particles at the surface of the orbital dark matter triggering beta decay and charged particles within the surroundings.  The orbital path of the dark matter will set the rotation of the magnetic fields. Io orbits within a belt of intense radiation known as the Io plasma torus. The torus is composed of three sections: an outer, “warm” torus that resides just outside Io’s orbit; a vertically extended region known as the “ribbon”, composed of the neutral source region and cooling plasma, located at around Io’s distance from Jupiter; and an inner, “cold” torus, composed of particles that are slowly spiraling in toward Jupiter. It will be within this coldest part of the torus that you find your orbital dark matter.  I believe these are the same forces that created our moon, not an asteroid hit like many believe.  I also believe there is still orbital dark matter locking our moon into a synchronous orbit with Earth, which we may be able to exploit.
