Consider | The Phenomena Known as Crater Chains

Found all throughout our solar system, crater chains exist as both abundant and remarkable occurrences that the conventional model of space has no rational explanation for. Which is why, in this episode of Consider, we’ll take a step outside of the box to see just how easy it can be to explain such a bizarre phenomena when you allow yourself to consider an alternative point of view.
Curious as to how a crater chain forms? Well, you should be. But before we turn to a reasonable explanation, let’s first look at what our planet’s space agencies have been telling us when this issue has been raised.

The first explanation is simply that a group of meteorites impacted in just the right way. The second explanation involves a series of volcanic activities.
Neither of these explanations even seem to warrant the time necessary to explain what common sense should be telling us all. This is especially the case when a rather simple explanation already exists.

Electrical scarring, the by-product of an electrically-based universe, is an easy and lab-tested explanation for crater chains and other seemingly unexplainable features found on celestial bodies.
It’s already known that the universe was once dominated by a very dense field of plasma. And even though such a field still exists today at a lighter degree, its earlier state would have given rise to an immense amount of violent electrical activities that would have seemed apocalyptic to any modern eyes while being ideal for creating crater chains.

  1. Crater chains can also be explained by a larger body fragmenting into many smaller bodies, which then impact the surface in a line, just as we saw with Shoemaker-Levy 9 when it impacted Jupiter.

    1. That’s a very keen connection, and that type of cosmic interaction should have been more clearly elaborated upon in our article, particularly in regards to why it’s–as the conventional explanation–is problematic in our view.
      In regards to that, what it seems that we didn’t make clear enough was the significance of the actual observable remaining structures of the individual craters in the chains. If you look at these structures, they’re typically very clear cut rings; as if a cosmic body impacted directly upon them: at a 90 degree angle. Though, as we know, if a cosmic body was to make impact, it would collide at a significant angle and create a crater representing that skewed collision; the crater should more closely resemble what you’d see remaining after you threw a rock into a distant sand box.
      This discrepancy is one of the main issues that we were attempting to draw attention to.

      1. Good points. From what I’ve read about impact physics, the crater structure is not a result of the impact of the object into the ground, but by the explosion resulting from the kinetic energy of the object turning into heat as it buries itself in the ground. So craters are always circular, no matter the angle of approach… unless the angle is so shallow, the impactor skips off the surface and continues out into space(called an “oblique impact”, looks like an oval with “wings” of ejecta).

        The Carolina Bays have the shape you’re talking about, shallow ellipses, all over the landscape, in a large range of sizes. But what’s interesting about these geoforms is that their long axes point to a common origin point to the northwest. When adjustments are made for the rotation of the earth during a ballistic trajectory, the common origin centers on Saginaw Bay in the Great Lakes. The floor of the bay actually gets deeper as it approaches the shoreline, and looks very much like an oblique impact. If the bay was created by an oblique impact, probably during the most recent ice age, the passage of the impactor would have hurled enormous chunks of ice into ballistic trajectories, and they made the shallow ellipses of the Carolina Bays when they came back down. But these chunks lacked the sheer inertia of an extraterrestrial impactor traveling 20-70 thousand miles per hour, so their impacts did not result in explosions.

        That said, (and this comment is a lot longer than I thought it would be, lol), I’m not totally clear on why or how a fragmenting impactor should strike in a precise line, which is necessary to create the crater chains.
