KRONOS Vol IV, No. 3
From a letter from Velikovsky to Prof. Walter S. Adams written July,1955:
"[in the past] you have kindly answered me about the chances to determine rare gases
in the atmosphere of the planets. Now I come with another request.
" ... on the basis of my theory ... I would also like to know whether [there is] reason to
assume that Jupiter and Venus, alike, have iron and sulphur in an ionized state."
From a handwritten letter from Prof. Adams to Velikovsky, dated July 25, 1955:
"Ionized iron and sulphur could not possibly be present in the atmospheres of Jupiter
and Venus, because their spectra are atomic and would require very high temperatures for
Early Pioneer Venus findings indicate that the following ions are present in Venus'
atmosphere – "molecular oxygen, atomic oxygen, carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, atomic
nitrogen, carbon, hydrogen, helium, iron and magnesium." (Cp. Science 23 Feb.1979, p. 753.)
[Sulfur in various states has also been found, thus increasing the possibility that ionized sulfur
exists in the atmosphere of Venus as well.]
"The ultraviolet markings in Venus' clouds appear to be due to a layer of ultraviolet
absorbing material within the clouds with elemental sulfur the most likely candidate ..."
(Aviation Week & Space Technology, p.47).
March 3, 1979
Emissions from the recently discovered plasma cloud circling Jupiter "recorded by
Voyager 1's ultraviolet spectrometer, indicate to scientists that the source of the radiation is a
dense swarm of sulfur three particles – which are sulfur atoms stripped of two electrons, or
ionized, from the extreme heat" (New York Times, p.12).
