Direct Portals to the Sun’s Atmosphere Discovered
Observations by NASA’s THEMIS spacecraft, European Cluster probes and sometheories describe the idea of Earth’s magnetic ﬁeld in certain spots coupling to andmerging with the Sun’s, larger magnetic ﬁeld. These portals are extraordinary openings which are uninterrupted paths connecting areas of space approximately 20
50 thousand kilometers above Earth, to the Sun’s atmosphere.Most portals are short
lived, others are larger and longer sustained. These portals cancause a heating of the Earth’s atmosphere, altering the Earth’s magnetic climate, andcreating bright
ignitions. A video is included in this NASA newsarticle.
In long term future, this may be a way to tap directly into the Sun as an energy source without ever having left home.
New Kind of Physics Being Invented
In order to ﬁnd discover the next major theory of physics, we need to pushexperiments to limits we could never before imagine. Both quantum theory andrelativity explain
seemingly impossible paradoxes in space, time, andphilosophy, and are widely known to be seemingly contradictory steps in the rightdirection.Physicists have as of yet never seen what happens when they pit Einstein’s theoriesagainst quantum behavior, and humanity has as of yet, never seriously done quantumphysics in space. There’s no reason why we can’t do the double
slit experiment orquantum teleportation in space, “just to see what happens.”The record for teleporting quantum objects is increasing exponentially, as all vitalnumbers do. A couple weeks ago it was that limit that increased to 150,000 km by a European research team. One of the important things about relativity is that it isonly known to have noticeable e
ects at scales signiﬁcantly larger than our
