"Dr Gingell's success in winning a Royal Society University Research Fellowships firmly establishes her as a rising star in the study of magnetic reconnection
and shock waves within the Earth's magnetosphere," says Professor Knigge.
has remained a bit of a mystery to scientists.
Galileo's Plasma Subsystem instrument (PLS) had also observed an explosive event called magnetic reconnection
taking place around Ganymede.
Both are generally understood to be the result of a huge magnetic reconnection
event on the Sun.
This process called magnetic reconnection
(11) will not only heat the plasma, but also eject plasma clouds to the interplanetary space.
The confined eruption of the filament within a null-point topology, which is also known as an Eiffel tower magnetic field configuration, forms a twisted jet after magnetic reconnection
near the null point.
WASHINGTON (CyHAN)- Like sending sensors up into a hurricane, NASA has flown four spacecraft through an invisible maelstrom in space, called magnetic reconnection
. Magnetic reconnection
is one of the prime drivers of space radiation and so it is a key factor in the quest to learn more about our space environment and protect our spacecraft and astronauts as we explore farther and farther from Earth.
In doing so, RHESSI confirming that magnetic reconnection
is responsible for both flares and coronal mass ejections .
The mission aims to provide a high-resolution, 3D view of magnetic reconnection
in Earth's magnetosphere, with measurements taken 100 times faster than before.
