The Electric Universe is simple to understand—simple enough to begin teaching it in primary school, according to Wal Thornhill.
Wallace Thornhill, the Chief Science Advisor to The Thunderbolts Project, is co-author with David Talbott of Thunderbolts of the Gods and The Electric Universe. His first peer-reviewed paper on the electrical nature of stars and supernovae was published in the IEEE Transactions on Plasma Science, Vol 35 No. 4, Special Issue on Space & Cosmic Plasmas – August 2007. In 2010 he was was awarded a gold medal by the European Telesio-Galilei Academy of Science. For his lifelong contribution to science he received the distinguished Sagnac Award from the Natural Philosophy Alliance in 2013. He has spoken at numerous international conferences, and authored or co-authored papers ranging from the Martian “blueberry” phenomenon to the “plasma focus” at the centers of galaxies. His interviews for “Space News from the Electric Universe” have been among the most popular attractions on the YouTube Thunderbolts Channel.
