    A Giant Breach in Earth's Magnetic Field

    Breaking News from NASA... just hours ago

    A Giant Breach in Earth's Magnetic Field
    12.16.2008

    Dec. 16, 2008: NASA's five THEMIS spacecraft have discovered a breach in Earth's magnetic field ten times larger than anything previously thought to exist. Solar wind can flow in through the opening to "load up" the magnetosphere for powerful geomagnetic storms. But the breach itself is not the biggest surprise. Researchers are even more amazed at the strange and unexpected way it forms, overturning long-held ideas of space physics.

    "At first I didn't believe it," says THEMIS project scientist David Sibeck of the Goddard Space Flight Center. "This finding fundamentally alters our understanding of the solar wind-magnetosphere interaction."

    The magnetosphere is a bubble of magnetism that surrounds Earth and protects us from solar wind. Exploring the bubble is a key goal of the THEMIS mission, launched in February 2007. The big discovery came on June 3, 2007, when the five probes serendipitously flew through the breach just as it was opening. Onboard sensors recorded a torrent of solar wind particles streaming into the magnetosphere, signaling an event of unexpected size and importance.

    Leaks Found in Earth's Protective Magnetic Field

    Already picked up by several websites and Space.com and Livescience just posted a few hours ago. Nothing in mainstream media yet

    Scientists have found two large leaks in Earth's magnetosphere, the region around our planet that shields us from severe solar storms.

    The leaks are defying many of scientists' previous ideas on how the interaction between Earth's magnetosphere and solar wind occurs: The leaks are in an unexpected location, let in solar particles in faster than expected and the whole interaction works in a manner that is completely the opposite of what scientists had thought.

    The findings have implications for how solar storms affect the our planet. Serious storms, which involved charged particles spewing from the sun, can disable satellites and even disrupt power grids on Earth.

    The new observations "overturn the way that we understand how the sun's magnetic field interacts with the Earth's magnetic field," said David Sibeck of NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md., during a press conference today at the annual meeting of the American Geophysical Union in San Francisco.

    The bottom line: When the next peak of solar activity comes, in about 4 years, electrical systems on Earth and satellites in space may be more vulnerable.

    Thanks for posting this information,Zorgon....its very valuable to me personally...although in terms of what I'm going to do for preparation....well I'm leaning towards the philosophy,'I'm here for a good time,not a long time'...lol

    here's a website that has a list of major solar storm and news link to go along with them.

    I think this qualifies as an OH SHIT! moment...

    If they have had prior knowledge of this (DUH) then chemtrails may take on a new meaning too

    I don’t understand how chemtrails relate to magnetic’s.

    Re: A Giant Breach in Earth's Magnetic Field

    well I cant say I do either, and I could be reaching on this one, but it wouldn't be to "fix" the magnetosphere but to mitigate the harmful effects of having lost some of it

    suppose they have a way of putting nano-tech solutions or solar mitigating material in our atmosphere to counteract these undesirable effects

    they are spraying something

    made me wonder is all
