Earth is Protected by an "Electron Shield"

An invisible shield has been discovered some 7,200 miles above Earth that blocks so-called 'killer electrons,' which whip around the planet at near-light speed and have been known to threaten astronauts, fry satellites and degrade space systems during intense solar storms.

Invisible shield found thousands of miles above Earth blocks 'killer electrons'

Two probes sent out to further our knowledge of the Van Allen Belts found a barrier between the inner and outer belts that seem to be something like a barrier that is impenetrable to high-energy electrons, which could be dangerous. Science knew of these high-energy "Killer Electrons" for a while now, but it was thought that they dissipated in our atmosphere when interacting with molecules in the atmosphere. However, the probes sent to investigate the Van Allen Belts have found that these electrons are stopped even before reaching Earth's atmosphere.


It's almost like theses electrons are running into a glass wall in space," said Baker, the study's lead author. "Somewhat like the shields created by force fields on Star Trek that were used to repel alien weapons, we are seeing an invisible shield blocking these electrons. It's an extremely puzzling phenomenon.


I'm not sure what this means for our understanding of Auroras, which are said to caused by protons and electrons entering the atmosphere at the poles (moving along magnetic field lines) and interacting with molecules in the atmosphere. I need to look into that further, but maybe this newly-found barrier doesn't prevent the electrons from interacting with the atmosphere at the poles?

Nature: the greatest piece of technology ever.

From what I've read it seems that it is a sharp gradient that acts like the more extended fields, so it would probably guide the more energetic electrons to the poles too.

Very interesting , I love a mystery especially one involving the workings of our planet.

If the accompanying picture is accurate it seems to me that particles could still reach the poles , perhaps they're funneled and dispersed through the poles by the barrier.

Just a thought.

profound...


As I have written on the walls here before...

We have no idea how our world works...

Let alone how our planet keeps us alive...

Hell just look at how the moon's gravity effects our life..

Yes, the torus and a part of an electrical universe. As above, so below, our own energy fields also create our auric bodies, in the electric universe.

Esotericans, please be so kind and step out of the way! Science is taking over!

Really, a very nice phenomenon. Unwanted, undetected (up to now), and now it will become science's new lovechild of geology (*shudder*) and Kirchhoff's rules.

Yessss, yess, we love you

oh noes, how can this be...? electricity has nothing to do with how this universe works... (sarcasm)

If this is some lame way of trying to use this to support the debunked EU hypothesis then you're utterly missing the point.

Yeah, scientists know nothing about electromagnetism. Only brilliant loners understand how it works. [/sarcasm]

It can also shift us into different frequencies in case of collisions and visitors.

Yes, it was meant to protect us from our creator and destroyer, the unstable sun god.

Or sun just works fine.

The Newtonian knuckle-draggers will soon be 'shocked' into into seeing the workings of the Universe in a whole new light. Evidence mounts daily for the electro-magnetic nature, of Nature.

How does electromagnetism explain the sharp boundary?

Please indicate where EU predicted this.

Just another reason why the Earth is so rare.

One doubts such a system exists elsewhere in the Galaxy

Maybe.

But then again there are probably other planets in the galaxy with extremely rare characteristics unlike what we find on Earth or in our Solar System. Someone on those planets could say the same thing...i.e., they could say "We are so unique...".

Having said that, there are so many planets in our galaxy (and countless planets in the universe) that I suspect there are others in our galaxy that have a similar "electron shield". There may not be a planet that shares all of the EXACT characteristics of Earth, but I bet there are planets that share one or more of every natural characteristic of Earth.

It probably connects to The Crown Chakra at the top of the head.

Well earth isn't rare, its simply the way the universe is, and as a hologram, ie fractal, we all contain the whole within and can communicate with the whole. Hence the control grid by the elite to prevent you from doing that and lock you down as a particle, not the whole you really are.

Does this ( what amounts to a highly complex device, made up with
certain specifications, that enable it's performance to a specific
task ) shield not need to be located also with precision? In order to
deflect properly. No matter really, either way I think this is absolutely
extraordinary.
