Thanks for the video link Woodcarver.

Our magneto sphere is not created by our iron core. It is created by the layer directly outside of that. I’ll try to find a link
Thank you. I'll read it when I have more time. I have tons of questions and thoughts pertaining to this subject yet if ATS has taught me anything it's to read more and speculate less.

Hey I think this paper is up the same street !

This annoys me.
I mean, seriously. What else do you think you were going to find on the periphery of a giant ice mass.
I mean....duh? As it gets warmer (Towards the equator), there has to be a point where it'll be liquid.
What else were we "going to find"? Not really a surprise imho
Edit: BREAKING NEWS - Scientists say the giant yellow thing in the sky is actually "The Sun".

Interesting conversations going on here.
On a related note to the stellar induction talk.
You guys remember that we used to use "vacuum tubes" right?
Now we have transistors that are more or less, made of sand. (SiO2 + Processing, crystallization, trace metals, and lithographic burning etc...)
But the thing is, Vacuum tubes did the same job, and functioned such that a large enough potential energy difference would jump the vacuum gap.
I see no reason why planets would be immune to similar behavior, considering the space between them and their host star is... well... vacuum.
I wonder how often you get planetoid/star electrical arcs?
I hope a smarty pants scientist figures out how much debris we would need between us and the sun, to lower the threshold for such an event.
Who knows? Maybe with just a few busted up asteroids, we can make a chain of low resistance, and force that "tickle" to go where we want it.
