IONOOSPHERIC DISTURBANCE

11/13/2007 9:35 PM

Hi! I thought you'd be interested in this story from Science@NASA: Scientists are converging on Ethiopia this week to discuss a new and strange form of space weather over Africa. http://science.nasa.gov/headlines/y2007/13nov_africa.htm?friend


Let us discuss the various implications arising out of this strange new phenomenon

Best Regards

MM

Looks like a magnetohydrodynamics event (simplified a plasma motor or generator)

Without more data the one American event looks like it follows the Earths magnetic lines of force.

If you could reverse the effect you might put something up from the magnetic poles into space over the equator.

2cents worth
