I agree with you that solar physics is a specialized field unto itself, but I think that actually works in our favor in this case. Solar physicists have already become very interested in the Sun/Earth weather connection and they seem to be more open to acknowledging the role of electric fields in solar physics than most astronomers have been willing to embrace large scale electric fields in space. For instance, Eugene Parker has written and published at least two papers back in the 1950's related to electric fields and their role in solar flares. I think there's more openness in field of solar physics toward embracing and discussing electric fields than in other areas of astronomy. If they come completely out of the closet based on what they discover from these now solar probes, they won't likely be swayed back into submission by the larger body of astronomers into dismissing their own findings. They will go where the solar probe evidence leads them IMO.marv TO wrote:My experience is that "solar physics" is viewed as a science exclusive-to-itself, i.e. highly specialized domain which only "experts" can comprehend.

IMO solar physics is the key that is likely to unlock the door for the mainstream to start publicly embracing EU/PC theory. There are just too many obvious influences of electric fields in the solar atmosphere to keep ignoring them indefinitely.
Nevermind the incredible SAFFIRE project. ((EU Team)) needs carry the torch alone.
I think correlating Solar Events with Comet/Asteroid approaches and Terrestrial Earthquakes would be much more persuasive in the public eye, i.e. Ben Davidson research https://youtu.be/yBvo7lvfg8Y

Once you start to recognize that solar atmospheric physics is driven by electric fields, it's hard not to wonder what else in space is influenced by electric fields and what else might be better explained by the inclusion of large scale electric fields in space.
Black holes are one of those areas of astronomy that are getting very difficult to explain by the LCDM model and by gravity alone. The masses and spin rates involved have to be far greater than were ever first imagined, often exceeding the Eddington limit on growth, mostly because they have "assumed" that all x-ray and high energy output from the objects have to be explained by gravity alone. Even introducing some small amount of influences of electric fields would take off some of the pressure and allow black holes to be less massive and still produce the same high energy output. I think that's one area of astronomy that would dramatically benefit by the inclusion of more influence of electric fields.
On the other hand, inflation, dark matter and dark energy fields of astronomy are likely drag their feet for as long as they possibly can, kicking and screaming all the way. The handwriting however is already on the wall. DM research in particular has been a total and complete bust over the last few decades. They've spent billions on their research over the last 85 years and they still have no logical explanations to offer for galaxy rotation patterns and lensing studies. It's starting to become uncomfortable now. They can't even budge a few percentage points on the percentage of exotic forms of DM however without totally destroying the entire LCDM cosmology model, so pure denial of their baryonic mass estimation problems has now become the norm. They must know damn well that their mass estimates based on luminosity are inherently flawed, but they really don't know how to "fix" that problem without bringing down the whole LCDM model.
IMO it will probably take the 'discovery' of ever more distant "mature" galaxies in JWST images to finally take down the LCMD model, but I have the distinct feeling that solar physics will lead the way towards it's eventual demise by first embracing the larger role of electric fields in space.
