ScienceCasts: Hidden Magnetic Portals Around Earth
NASA Science ^ | June 28, 2012 | NASA Science

Posted on 06/29/2012 3:21:43 PM PDT by tired&retired

A NASA-sponsored researcher at the University of Iowa has developed a way for spacecraft to hunt down hidden magnetic portals in the vicinity of Earth. These portals link the magnetic field of our planet to that of the sun.

Excellent video on the science of our magnetosphere and how we are just learning about field reversal that open and close between earth and the sun.


TOPICS: Miscellaneous
KEYWORDS: catastrophism; cme; magnetosphere; science; stringtheory
Just looking for comments from our scientists at FR. I find this subject fascinating.

These aren’t “portals” that can transport us somewhere, they are just points of interaction between the Earth’s plasma field and the Sun’s plasma field. It’s funny that NASA gets through the entire video without actually mentioning the word plasma, they keep using related terms like “magnetic field”, “energetic particles”, and “Sun’s atmosphere”. They don’t want to attribute any significance to plasma in astral phenomena, lest they give the impression that electric universe proponents are actually on to something.

No. Socks, by virtue of their slight static electrical charge, are prey to flux changes in the galactic electromagnetic vortexes phasing in, and out of, our space/time continuum.

Actually, socks mutate and turn into hangars.

Well said. At the point where they should have been bludgeoned into submission they will still likely deny the obvious. After several more decades of denial, they will choose up sides and then determine it to be self evident; they have known it all along.

Now, about that "dark" matter and "dark" energy...

Yeah, dark matter, dark energy, what’s next? The dark force? It’s doing work that we can’t detect!

I kid, but I bet you could write a paper theorizing about a “dark force” and get a nice fat research grant.


Postscript: Just out of curiosity, I googled “Dark Force”, and someone already beat me to it, rats!

Gotta have a dark force to explain that pesky accelerating expansion that we need to explain that pesky red shift anomaly to make it fit into our gravitational model!

Hmm...I always wondered about that..
do they turn into plastic or wire hangers...or both? 8-)

I think it is just the wire ones..... tangled wire ones! Plastic hangars are useful and thus they disappear.... They become rubber bands.

Thank you. The word 'portal' is being misapplied.
But hey, he's being funded by NASA so he has to say something that sounds really new and cool to keep the cash flowing.

In his next research paper he'll somehow connect it to Global Warming ;-)

Grey socks turn into wire hangers, black ones turn into plastic hangers.

Dark force??? We've got all we can deal with in the White Hut.

I may not have made my point very well. What I was saying is the material that makes up most of the universe, being labeled dark matter and dark energy, is still a complete mystery to the Scientific Community™. They can't see it or measure it but they can apparently detect its GRAVITATIONAL effects. Since they aren't sure just how gravity works, it's an interesting conundrum and appears to this layman, a circular argument.

There are some researchers(mainstream or otherwise) out there attempting to determine if this so called dark matter and dark energy may in fact be plasma. One of the theories being we don't have the instruments yet capable of detecting it.

In any case, I don't hold out much hope for this bunch since they apparently haven't developed instruments yet capable of detecting a REALLY big flood in the not too distant past either.

No, they can detect plasma, and there is plenty of it all over the universe. The plasma universe theorists don’t think that the plasma IS the dark matter. What they think is that the dark matter isn’t necessary at all, once you figure in the electromagnetic effects into the equations.

You see, the dark matter is only necessary because a galaxy’s motion does not behave as it should if the motion is caused only by gravity. If gravity was causing it, then the outer parts of the galaxy would revolve more slowly than the inner parts, but instead we see that the outer parts of the galaxy keep the same angular velocity as the inner parts. So, the standard model theorists try to resolve this by proposing there is a whole lot more mass in the universe that we just can’t detect, and also by putting black holes in the center of galaxies to increase the mass as well.

The plasma theorists say that the galactic motion is entirely explainable if you understand the galaxies are made up mostly of plasma, and the plasma is moving mostly due to electromagnetic forces, and not due to gravity alone.

I'm afraid I was once again not very clear in my previous reply. ONE of the theories is that this dark "stuff" is a plasma made of particles so small that they're unable to detect it or measure it with current instruments. Maybe, maybe not. The two main players; that is dark stuff vs plasma cosmology crowds claim to have debunked the other's theories. I dunno...

I suspect they've all overlooked something which brings me to another theory that's just a plausible; maybe moreso, than any of the theirs: God designed it, built it and maintains it; something for Him that takes little more than an afterthought. I also suspect God has a sense of humor and gets a chuckle out of watching the Scientific Community™ and their efforts to explain His work by following the trail of bread crumbs He left behind. Just a theory mind you...
