New data collected by arrays of NASA and European satellites have shown that FTEs are brief, intermittent, and erratic. One way to think about FTEs is to "imagine a straw poking through a soap bubble and connecting the air on both sides," says space scientist David Sibeck of NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Laurel, Maryland, who has submitted a paper on the phenomena to Annales Geophysicae

Those who only have a limited understanding of certain aspects of science seem to associate things that probably should not be associated. For instance, we know from quantum mechanics that particles can do crazy things, but this does not mean that these strange things are possible for something like a human.

I'm friggin' fascinated by portals so much that I fantasize that I wake up during one night and witness this beautiful purple vortex/portal and it's just waiting for me to jump in...I don't care where it leads me to. Just the thought of it thrills me to the extreme.

My best guess from what I have read is that instead of the Suns magnetic field opposing the Earth's magnetic field, they join together and form a plasma link.
Plasma science is the future in my opinion. Plasma forms long helical strands that almost look like DNA. I think I have a link on this in one of my threads. The Earth is surrounded by a Jupiter sized Plasma Sphere. The Sun, like all stars is Plasma, or mainly plasma.
This is all conjecture on my part, but it sounds like a plasma bridge or tunnel is created, and plasma from the sun is injected into our plasma sphere.
What interests me is it shows something we didn't know that magnetic field actually effect space time. Einstein would freak out at this we all know gravity effects space time but magnetism? This is the reason we have no idea what causes this and opens up the door for some interesting future applications. If and granted it a really big if you can generate magnetic fields through space that indeed connects two points well let your imagination run wild lol.

This has come up numerous times before. They are not 'portals' as you may think they are. Rather they are 'tunnels' for particles to travel through, unaffected by the Sun's or the Earth's magnetic field. Not folds in time or space or wormholes, or anything metaphysical in nature.
Well Einstine showed of course gravity effects space we know that gravity connects stars and galaxies etc. But magnetism is not a fundamental force on large scales as far as we know though i will say oddly act very similar to gravity in alot of situations.
2. Electromagnetic - This acts between electrically charged particles. Electricity, magnetism, and light are all produced by this force and it also has infinite range.
