There are spots in space where Earth’s magnetic field lines directly connect with the Sun’s, creating an uninterrupted path from the Earth’s to the Sun’s atmosphere, 93 million miles away…
X-points are portals that form via the process of magnetic reconnection. Mingling lines of magnetic force from the sun and Earth criss-cross and join to create the openings. “X-points” are where the criss-cross takes place. The sudden joining of magnetic fields can propel jets of charged particles from the X-point, creating an “electron diffusion region.”
NASA’s MMS and THERMIS missions are exploring and probing these ephemeral rifts (seriously) in the magnetic field around Earth
to discover more about our local habitat in the Milky Way.
As always, I want to seriously thank you for all your warm support these past couple years, it’s always great to hear from you all.
