Electric spark scars 2006-2010
Crater-like features on this CRT mark electrical discharge locations. (metamorphosis best describes final appearance)
This is how the left crater-chain first appeared moments after forming from right to left
In early discharge experiments accumulated dust gave these results. A powered-on setting always gave crater features.
In Crater chains, first discharge remains a full circle, subsequents are actually partials, if they appear overlapped.
Movement of probe determines clustering as next area discharges to probe, appearance of overlap is partial formation)
Abundent craters on TV screen and pattern of partial circles shows path direction
Displacement of material with electric wind from inside the red disk to outside at right onto screen
Gradually formed craters. Hardly any initial discharge observed. These grew in fiberglass on CRT.
Spidery deposits with fiberglass
These spiders of fiberglass are also accumulations to the location of a localized discharge burst
Large spidery deposit marks the location of a surface discharge.
The spider formed subsequent to a large electric burst in twister experiment on CRT
Discharges bursting material from the surface left these locations as their focus for subsequent deposit
A bug of a spider with finely grouped tendrils formed during repeated surface discharges in vacinity
A field of spiders and other accumulations following electrical interaction calls for broader geologic consideration
Raised spiders and cluster of accumulation formed during first session of pasover monitor experiment.
Like Mercury's spider/crater in Carolis basin, these on CRT, some from multiple discharges to finger-probe
Mercury Crater and radial troughs may have formed in seperated events. (Nasa/John Hopkins)
Crater-link formations are seen associated with spiders, as are central specks
Here you can see several nearly circular regions within the tendrils, but note tendril breakthrough
Setup of Dual CRT screens, one Passes over the other, electrical interactions transfering material to top screen
Passover Monitor (top monitor) First Craters amidst transfered material
Passover Monitor Experiment negative spiders (lower CRT)
Material reshaped during passover monitor experiment, these began as mechanically heeped features
Craters 'Left' after transfer of material to this crt's surface during electrical interaction(POM experiment)
Tight view of craters with rim-fingers, signiture of discharge's radial properties (POM exprmnt)
Rim fingers have a dendritic appearance similar to many Martian craters
Negative Spiders might form at opposite end of arc that caused craters on other monitor in POM experiment
Material developed columns and sharp pointed faces where just mounds were.
Once a clean surface now covered in transfered material during electrical interaction (points marked by voids)
These features have earthly counterparts in great number. Clumping and dispersal of material also occurred
Close-up Mercury-like spider
long tendrils mark the path of surface discharge to other monitor
The mounds played some role in the discharge based on tendril proportions and mound alterations.
Moving on from POM experiment and just testing for activity, huge Craters.
Hexagonal formations have also been seen formed in electro-deposits between locations of discharges.
