NASA link...good enough source?
PS I haven't logged in for months...had to pop in to help the OP...hope you don't mind God Bless and keep up the search...the truth is out there
Did you read the NASA link you cite for content?
It's not a 'river of energy', it's an area of energetic neutral atoms. To interpret, it's hydrogen, not ionized or plasma, that are moving. Not a
'galactic energy cloud'.
Why are you so confrontational in this post? Why would you question if I read it? Are you saying hydrogen is not energetic? Hmmm that is contrary to
most theories I have heard...I will praise you on the nobel prize once you turn the scientific world upside down with your theories
will post some of the article you decided to confront me about
If you read it and understood it you would notice this portion towards the end of it...although again they still do not know what it is...QUOTE: This
theory posited that the ribbon exists in a special location where neutral hydrogen atoms from the solar wind cross the local galactic magnetic field.
Neutral atoms are not affected by magnetic fields, but when their electrons get stripped away they become charged ions and begin to gyrate rapidly
around magnetic field lines. This process frequently aims ions back toward the sun. So those ions that pick up electrons at the right time might
explain the extra boost of neutral atoms that create the ribbon. The problems were that physical processes might break down the distribution needed
for it to work and that models based on this process showed a ribbon narrower than IBEX observed.
The new theory adds a key process: That rapid rotation creates waves or vibrations in the magnetic field, and the charged ions then become physically
trapped in a region by these waves, which in turn would amplify the ion density and produce the broader ribbon seen.
"Think of the ribbon as a harbor and the solar wind particles it contains as boats," says Nathan Schwadron, the first author on the paper and
scientist at The University of New Hampshire, Durham. “The boats can be trapped in the harbor if the ocean waves outside it are powerful enough.
This is the nature of the new ribbon model. The ribbon is a region where particles, originally from the solar wind, become trapped or retained due to
intense waves and vibrations in the magnetic field." END QUOTE
PS...waves and magnetic fields flow...this ribbon is being affected by waves and magnetic fields...I hypothesis that it might be described as a river
more accurately than a harbour of solar wind particles...everything is always moving...
PSS in cases you missed it...charged ions are mentioned...also electrons are being stripped from the hydrogen.
I could be wrong...but so could you
