To reveal where electrical discharges were involved in carving out planetary features we might wonder: are 'million dollar research labs' necessary to investigate the possibilities? Are they necessary to show our next generation of thinkers how some planetary features are formed? The answer is: No, not at all!
We can use simple experiments like those of the late 1800's from innovators exploring the wonders of electricity.
So, here at NPA19 i will attempt to show some simple and "reasonably safe" ways to create planetary-like surface features -'electrically'- using an old CRT, some dust, and a variety of probes, that we might evaluate enigmatic surface features seen on planets and moons.
