Astronomers admit that there are magnetic fields in space. The problem is, they attribute them to assumed hidden dynamos in the core of celestial bodies.

There is a better explanation: Electric currents, also called Birkeland currents, in space. We know there is plasma in space. It is ridiculous to assume that it doesn't do anything.

Retired professor of electrical engineering and amateur astronomer Donald E. Scott, author of the book Electric Sky, has written a paper, "Magnetic Fields of Birkeland Currents." The 13 page .pdf is online here.

The Conclusions:




Additionally, there is this Acknowledgement:



We are going to hear more and more about the Electric Universe.

Hopefully, it will open up science and technology to new frontiers.

What about skies without plasma? Total vacuum?

That being said, total vacuum does have electrical permittivity (because of quantum virtual pair production) - but that's beside the OP point.

Actually, plasma cosmology deals with this and it says that it plays an important role far beyond our solar system.

Plasma Cosmology Wikipedia

Maybe the understanding of these physics will bring cosmology and quantum physics closer together.

I wonder how the magnetic field of a galaxy looks like. Back in 2010, Fermi discovered that the Milky Way actually
has 2 very big bubbles of plasma coming out of the center perpendicular to its plane.

Ghostly Gamma-ray Beams Blast from Milky Way's Center

And not to forget all the radiation from the CMB, supernovaes, blackholes and all the other exotic celestial bodies that is all over the place in the universe. This radiation striking the matter of planets and stars should also charge up a magnetic field.
Also like the recent discovery that solar wind and even supernovaes might power lightning on earth.

Its definatly a good topic to talk about, thanks for bringing it up.

I think the Universe is basically one giant circuit board.

I lean more towards Electric Universe and Plasmal Cosmology than Quantum Mechanics.

Maybe Faraday was right. Is it all just a dream?

How does this fit in with the field of magnetic anomalies (actual bubbles of sorts) which Voyager I encountered in it's latest phase?

Who assumes it doesn't do anything? The solar wind is plasma. It carries shreds of the Sun's magnetic field with it. It creates geomagnetic storms. It creates the aurora. It does lots of interesting things when it encounters the magnetic field produced by Earth.

Of course Birkeland currents do something, since you can see their effects in the Aurora Borealis and Australis:

Birkeland current

Small scale variations in the upward current sheets (downward flowing electrons) accelerate magnetospheric electrons which, when they reach the upper atmosphere, create the Aurora Borealis and Australis.


Regarding larger scale currents than our solar system, both observations and models have placed constraints on how large they can be.

Can Electric Charges and Currents Survive in an Inhomogeneous Universe?

Although observations point to the neutrality and lack of currents on large scales in the universe, many mechanisms are known that can generate charges or currents during the early universe. We examine the question of survivability of relic charges and currents in a realistic model of the universe. We show that the dynamics of cosmological perturbations drive the universe to become electrically neutral and current-free to a high degree of accuracy on all scales, regardless of initial conditions. We find that charges are efficiently driven away in a time small compared to the Hubble time for temperatures 100 GeV > T > 1 eV, while the same is true for currents at all temperatures T > 1 eV.

Did you read your source? It says it's considered outside anything even plausible by mainstream science!


many of the issues that were mysterious in the 1980s and 1990s, including discrepancies relating to the cosmic microwave background and the nature of quasars, have been solved with more evidence that, in detail, provides a distance and time scale for the universe. Plasma cosmology supporters therefore dispute the interpretations of evidence for the Big Bang, the time evolution of the cosmos, and even the expanding universe; their proposals are essentially outside anything considered even plausible in mainstream astrophysics and cosmology.


Here's the link about the actual science of space plasma:

space plasma physics

The boundary between the Earth's magnetic field and interplanetary space was studied by Explorer 10. Future space craft would travel outside Earth orbit and study the composition and structure of the solar wind in much greater detail. These include WIND (spacecraft), (1994), Advanced Composition Explorer (ACE), Ulysses, the Interstellar Boundary Explorer (IBEX) in 2008, and Solar Probe+. Other spacecraft would study the sun, such as STEREO and Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO).
Space plasma is a serious topic, but you have to check to see if what people are saying about it are supported by observation. There are some fringe claims about it not supported by any observation, but then there are some mainstream claims well supported by observation.

If the solar wind is a plasma, then treat it like a plasma, and stop treating it like a magnetic fluid with no resistance.

Hannes Alfven had this to say about MHD theory:


"As neither double layer nor circuit can be derived from magnetofluid models of a plasma, such models are useless for treating energy transfer by means of double layers. They must be replaced by particle models and circuit theory."
...
"M. Azar has studied how a number of the most used textbooks in astrophysics treat important concepts like double layers, critical velocity, pinch effects and circuits. He has found that students using these textbooks remain essentially ignorant of even the existence of these, in spite of the fact that some of them have been well known for half a century [e.g., double layers and pinch effect]. The conclusion is that astrophysics is too important to be left in the hands of the astrophysicists. The billion-dollar telescope data must be treated by scientists who are familiar with laboratory and magnetospheric physics and circuit theory, and of course with modem plasma theory."
...
"I thought that the frozen-in concept [MHD theory] was very good from a pedagogical point of view, and indeed it became very popular. In reality, however, it was not a good pedagogical concept but a dangerous "pseudo-pedagogical concept." By pseudo-pedagogical I mean a concept which makes you believe that you understand a phenomenon whereas in reality you have drastically misunderstood it."


Everyone should take the time to read that address by Alfven where these quotes come from. It's some of the most powerful statements against mainstream cosmology ever uttered by a Nobel laureate.

Maybe the messing around with the planetary frequencies have finally hit home because we are connected to all planets lol.

Shame they feel they need scientists to tell us what is fact and right.
