A multidisciplinary magnate-matter-of-air mission (MMS), a space project featuring four satellites launched by NASA in 2015, has revealed a magnetic explosion on the Earth's night side, which will allow a better understanding of the phenomenon of magnetic reconnect, according to an article published Thursday in the journal Science.
The mission was able to get high-resolution images on our planet's night-side – a new perspective that provides NASA with information on magnetic returns, a "energy transformation process that occurs in many astrophysical conditions. [en todo el universo], including magnetic fields of the earth. "
This is the first time scientists have been able to observe this phenomenon thanks to a particle flow that is symmetrically placed in the tail, which according to the Science Alert portal is a "more rational version" of the chaotic activities of the Earth's magnetic field solar panel. "The more we know about these repeated links, the more we can prepare for external events that are possible [de este fenómeno] around Earth or at any point in the Universe, "said Roy Torbert, MMS's Chief Researcher.
Scientists who had already drawn parts of this phenomenon in this part of our atmosphere already in October 2015 have now seen it as a comet in the dark side of the Earth, which gives them a new vision for themselves, since it reveals a steady stream of high-energy jets, moving at speeds over 15,000 kilometers per second.
The surface of the earth is protected from the continuous use of electrons and high-speed protons that are released from the sun using a "magnetic umbrella", whose "tissue threads and ripples with energy, as it draws particles into it, the length of the channels loop" and, finally, returns to the room, remembers a science alert. In the event of a large accumulation of these particles, it could "lead to chaos networks and electrical systems."
Launched on March 13, 2015, the MMS is a tetrahedral satellite formation whose purpose is to gather information about the microcontroller of magnetic reconsolidation, the acceleration of energy particles and turbulence, as well as processes occurring in many astrophysical plasma.
