The Electric Universe - A Practical Electrical Engineer's Cosmology (ITEE Joint Event)
Presented By : Wal Thornhill
Date : 2012-02-01, 12:00pm - 1:30pm (Session A) or 6:00pm - 7:30pm (Session B)
Location : John Connell Auditorium, Engineering House, 21 Bedford Street, North Melbourne (map)
A special event presented by the: Information, Telecommunication & Electronic Engineers (ITEE) Victorian Branch and the IEEE, Victorian Section
The Electric Universe paradigm is a shift in fundamental perception. It acknowledges the primacy of the electric force in nature and is inherently sceptical about gravity-only cosmology, standard relativity theory, and extravagant mathematical speculation.
It appeals to direct interdisciplinary evidence and common sense and has an unparalleled record of successful predictions in the space age.
A Melbourne University physics graduate and natural philosopher, Mr. Thornhill has spent decades questioning popular ideas about the physical world. In the past 15 years, standing on the shoulders of noted predecessors, he has laid an interdisciplinary foundation for the Electric Universe paradigm.
He has peer-reviewed papers in the IEEE Transactions on Plasma Science and the Open Astronomy Journal and he received a gold medal in 2010 from the Telesio-Galilei Academy of Science for his work on the Electric Universe.
