'Portals' found in Earth's magnetic field

NASA plans to launch four spacecraft to investigate hidden portals in the magnetic field of the Earth.

The portals, or "x-points", were observed in the 1990s by NASA's Polar spacecraft and are thought to connect the magnetic field of the Earth with the magnetic field of the Sun, creating an uninterrupted path between the two atmospheres. The portals appear to be highly volatile, opening and closing several times a day while proving highly elusive and difficult to locate.

"This recent discovery was actually not found by the use of new technology."

if anyone wants to volunteer to travel along this portal [very much doubt you could] then i would suggest an asbestos suit would be a good idea. gl

Yeah i remember that. Maybe it was just because of the governments' fear that it would yet again be proved that private corporations are more effective than the government

Maybe its time to let other agencies go on with only private funding too then. Maybe they will be more successful without the BS that comes from Govt officials.
