Nasa Discovers Magnetic Portals Opening Up Between The Earth's Magnetic Field and Sun Every Day!
Related to the notion of wormholes in quantum physics are "magnetic portals" in astrophysics, as both types of phenomena allow for distant points in space to be closely connected in ways that seem to defy conventional logic.

NASA recently reported that University of Iowa plasma physicist Jack Scudder discovered that there are regions in the Earth's magnetic field that directly connect it to the magnetic field of the sun, circumventing 93 million miles of space.

These mysterious regions, known as "magnetic portals" are thought to be opening and closing dozens of times every day.

The appearing and disappearing portals are generally located many thousands of miles above the earth, in the upper atmosphere, and a large number of particles flow back and forth through these openings.

The particles flow through these portals as if there was no space between our earth's magnetic field and the sun's, and this interchange can have dramatic effects.

According to the NASA press release about this discovery, "Tons of energetic particles can flow through the openings, heating Earth's upper atmosphere, sparking geomagnetic storms, and igniting bright polar auroras."

I thought there would be some people on here that would be interested in this. Comments?

Updating with some further searching about the status of studies since the inception of these findings:

1: Thanks to AC for pointing out when this first surfaced.

[link to science1.nasa.gov]

2: "Observations by NASA's THEMIS spacecraft and Europe's Cluster probes suggest that these magnetic portals open and close dozens of times each day. They're typically located a few tens of thousands of kilometers from Earth where the geomagnetic field meets the onrushing solar wind. Most portals are small and short-lived; others are yawning, vast, and sustained. Tons of energetic particles can flow through the openings, heating Earth's upper atmosphere, sparking geomagnetic storms, and igniting bright polar auroras.

NASA is planning a mission called "MMS," short for Magnetospheric Multiscale Mission, due to launch in 2014, to study the phenomenon. Bristling with energetic particle detectors and magnetic sensors, the four spacecraft of MMS will spread out in Earth's magnetosphere and surround the portals to observe how they work."

Come on now. I know there are some people out there that would be into this. No thoughts? I mean this new information about these portals and the subsequent studies that it is going to produce could be the very beginning of us understanding/conceptualizing the use of a warp drive. I mean, this is the stuff that needs to be studied to begin to produce technology that can manipulate these forces.

I've thought that it could be conceivable that we could technically use the magnetic flux of something to propel us through space, but again you have an initial velocity/trajectory to begin with... so idk.

Yea. I'm no physicist but I feel like its possible. The guy from NASA that they interview talks about weaving negative force around the holes to keep them stable. The main issue with using worm holes/magnetic holes for travel is that they close so quickly and are crazy unstable. I think it has something to do with resonance bla bla bla haha.

I would start by checking strong magnetic coupling between the earth and sun. When the sun flares next to the magnetic connection it pulses the earth... like connecting the two with a wire... but resonance blah blah blah.

By the way, this resurfaced more recently because they have found a way to track these things and to find them. This allows for closer study. That happened as recently as last year. I will update the OP with a link to NASA talking about it.

Horror novelist Brian Keene used this theory in one of his books, so I guess it's been out there a while. Cool to see it verified now by mainstream science, though.

(Ok I am sure this is "out there" but hell, it's glp right?)

A cell gets both electromagnetic and bio-chemical signals from the brain and the supporting systems. Are we looking at an example of our sun and earth "communicating" in their own particular way? If so, I wonder how studying the communication between our "star" and our "home" will interfere with their chat?

Like I said, "out there".

Haha. Out there but a pretty interesting thought. I like to consider the correlations between the micro and the macro universe. I think it is a subject that is not generally examined or thought about. I don't really have an answer though. I know that simply observing anything effects what happens though. So you could be on to something there, space cadet.

It may not be the fact that "worm holes" are opening up, but the fact that the dust/plasma/matter that comes from the sun naturally has some sort of iron molecules in it, and can follow the magnetic field lines much quicker than standard travel.

The magnetic field lines are constantly changing so it gives the appearance of a "worm hole" opening and closing. When it could be that they're just constantly changing their physical positions in space.

The article makes some huge leaps and assumptions which most likely will be found far from true.

It reads like particles will travel faster than SOL but that has not as yet been observed.
