Magnetic Portals Found in Earth’s Atmosphere

more sun storms: higher earth temps

sunportalWORLD NEWS TOMORROW – Science-fiction writers have toyed with the concept of a portal for many years, and scientists have been trying to discover such a structure in real life. A new study backed by NASA has revealed the existence of a so-called magnetic portal, connecting the atmospheres of the Earth and the Sun.

Usually, a portal is defined as an opening through spacetime that enables a traveler to move over great distances, or over time, instantly. In other words, it represents a shortcut, or maybe a guiding pathway to a particular destination.

Using funds provided by the American space agency, experts at the University of Iowa have recently been able to discover electron diffusion regions (X-points), where the magnetic field of Earth connects directly to the magnetic field of the Sun.

This link creates an uninterrupted path leading from our own planet to the Sun’s atmosphere,” more than 93 million miles (157 million kilometers) away,” says UI plasma physicist Jack Scudder.

The observations that led to this conclusion were carried out using the Cluster constellation – which is operated by the European Space Agency (ESA) – and the NASA Time History of Events and Macroscale Interactions during Substorms (THEMIS) mission.

The satellites indicate that the magnetic portals open and close several times per day, and that they are located around only a few tens of thousands of kilometers away from Earth. They prefer to appear at locations where the geomagnetic field meets incoming solar winds.

These portals can be either short-lived, or can last for a longer time, allowing highly energetic particles to flow right through. These particles can heat the planet’s upper atmosphere, create geomagnetic storms, and spawn very bright auroras.

NASA plans to study these magnetic portals in more detail, once it launches the Magnetospheric Multiscale Mission (MMS), in 2014. The constellation will feature four identical satellites.

All the vehicles will study magnetic reconnection, a process that occurs high above the planet, and which can provide telltale signs regarding the formation of magnetic portals. Each of the MMS spacecraft will have the ability to detect these clues, and then alert the others of the impending event.

Humankind faces huge solar storms

Get ready for some solar action as Earth heads into a period of increased solar activity with a peak in flares predicted for 2013. Scientists say the number of solar storms will be the highest for a decade.

The Sun is on the ascendant phase of its 11-year cycle, with the peak due in February 2013.

“Now the sun has entered a new phase of its active state. The peak of this phase will occur in 2012 and in the following years. And today explosions and solar flares are occuring more often,” Yury Zaitsev, analyst at the Russian Academy of Sciences’ Institute of Space Research, told Interfax news agency.

This solar maximum, will be less powerful than the previous one in 2000 and one of the weakest since 1928, the NOAA Space Weather Prediction Center predicted.

“In 2000 there were far more geomagnetic storms than expected in this and coming years.  And not only in quantity but also in power,” said Sergey Gaydash, the head of Russia’s Institute of Terrestrial Magnetism, Ionosphere and Radio Wave Propagation.

Though weak, it can still pose threats to communication lines, with predictions that a strong solar storm could cause between $1 and 2 trillion in damages.

The increased solar activity and following higher Geomagnetic Activity (GMA) could possibly have a significant influence on those suffering from heart attacks and cardiovascular diseases.

The idea that the magnetic storms have an influence on health has been confirmed by the statistical and clinical studies, said Zaitsev.

It will also way cause major fluctuations in the Sun’s magnetic field, and an increase in the number of sunspots, coronal mass ejections, and solar flares, which often happen shortly after the peak.

Experts suggest taking simple preventive measures during big flares – satellites should be put offline, power grids and communication networks be shielded against electromagnetic radiation.

About Major Ed Dames:
Major Edward A. Dames, United States Army (ret.), is a decorated military intelligence officer and an original member of the U.S. Army prototype remote viewing training program. He served as both training and operations officer for the U.S. government’s TOP SECRET psychic espionage unit (PSIINT).

Major Dames has been awarded the Legion of Merit, and two Meritorious Service Medals. Major Dames retired from the U.S. Army in 1991 and began a full-time effort to advance remote viewing technology, and to create teams of professional civilian Remote Viewers to work on complex projects.

He currently serves as executive director for the Matrix Intelligence Agency, a private consulting group.

What he’s saying:
We’re not going to be hit by just one mega solar flare, but a series of them over time (perhaps over a 1-2 year period), “that’s going to turn Earth into a veritable X-ray & proton rotisserie,” he said. Locations in the southern hemisphere will have few survival zones, he said.

If you aren’t in a safe haven, then living underground to avoid the high winds and dark skies, is your best option, he added.
