That is pretty damn cool.
I wonder if they effect satellites at all? Can they be harnessed as a source of energy? Can probes or other spacecraft hitch a ride to cut down travel
time to Mercury and Venus?
I'm kind of excited now.
NASA finally concedes that what was once considered science fiction is now a reality. A recent announcement by NASA of an upcoming probe called MMS will study these Space–Time Portals.
Space–Time portals have been talked about for decades in science fiction and the alternative media communities have presented many theories on their existence. Something tells me that someday soon NASA will admit that Crop Circles are in fact made by Extraterrestrial Technology – but I digress.
The article posted June 29th on the NASA Science News site begins,
“A favorite theme of science fiction is “the portal”–an extraordinary opening in space or time that connects travelers to distant realms. A good portal is a shortcut, a guide, a door into the unknown. If only they actually existed….
It turns out that they do, sort of, and a NASA-funded researcher at the University of Iowa has figured out how to find them.”
In the article, University of Iowa plasma physicist Jack Scudder describes the portals as X-points or electron diffusion regions. He goes on to say, “They’re places where the magnetic field of Earth connects to the magnetic field of the Sun, creating an uninterrupted path leading from our own planet to the sun’s atmosphere 93 million miles away.”
A few important excerpts from the article follow. reads,
“Observations by NASA’s THEMIS spacecraft and Europe’s Cluster probes suggest that these magnetic portals open and close dozens of times each day. They’re typically located a few tens of thousands of kilometers from Earth where the geomagnetic field meets the onrushing solar wind. Most portals are small and short-lived; others are yawning, vast, and sustained. Tons of energetic particles can flow through the openings, heating Earth’s upper atmosphere, sparking geomagnetic storms, and igniting bright polar auroras.
“In the late 1990s, NASA’s Polar spacecraft spent years in Earth’s magnetosphere,” explains Scudder, “and it encountered many X-points during its mission.”

Hasn't ancient peoples had portals since long ago? Egypt pyramids and what not. They were Sun worshipers as well. Would be interesting to see what connections there are.

Amazing, I'm really excited about this!
Been interested in this type of phenomena since reading about the Gulf of Aden. You don't tend to hear anything about it, especially not from NASA...
Thank you OPedit on 6-7-2012 by paradisepurple because: Sp.

Could you link the actual NASA source that concedes Space-time portals exist?.....you have only cited a couple of dodgy blogs.
Thanks in advance.

You are on to something BIG if NASA has the courage to admit it publically, especially in defiance of the Administrations "Transparency" statements. Wonder what else they might admit ????

No, NASA does not "concede space-time portals exist!" The press release from NASA says nothing about space-time. What it is describing are lines of magnetic reconnection. In short, the interaction between the Sun and the Earth's magnetic fields "tunnels" plasma to the Earth. Your secondary source is notoriously unreliable.
