Portal to the Sun Opening Every 8 Minutes

02/20/2011 7:48 PM

There is a magnetic flux coupling occurring from the Sun to the Earth, and this portal occurs about every 8 minutes, during which time particles pass through these magnetic tubes.

Does anyone know of this occurring with other planets,like Venus?

D'you have the first idea what you're talking about?

Think you're smoking some bad gear, friend. I'd take it back and complain .

You have the right to remain ignorant,and you may defend that right to the last bit of your mental ability.A Lincoln said:"It is not what people don't know that makes them ignorant, it is what they know that just isn't so"

So, if you would like to spread a little light on the dark corners of your mentality, do your research before disparaging new knowledge.

Google "portal opening between Earth and the Sun" and then post an informed comment, if possible.

I understand what you are asking. The driving factor is having a magnetic field. Earth has a pretty prominent magnetic moment pole to pole.

Venus does not (it is actually very weak like Mars) and the interaction between the Sun and Venus works on a different mechanism when high energy particles from the Sun strike that planet's ionosphere.

Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune all have strong magnetic fields. Mercury was a surprise to find it also had a weak magnetic field.

Interesting.

Sorry AH. Link is for the site referred to by the guest.

Are you sure you're not confusing the light-travel-time between the Sun and the Earth with the occasional magnetic storms on the Sun that send ionized particles toward the Earth?

It takes light about 8 minutes when it leaves the Sun's photosphere to reach the Earth. The stream of particles that leaves the Sun due to a solar flare thankfully takes a bit longer, so when astronomers see a solar storm they can send out warnings for the astronauts in space and for power grids to prepare for power surges when the storm reaches us.

Not Venus. Particles don't pass through Venus. This is more like something that would pass through Uranus.

There once was a lady from Venus
Who's body was shaped like a *****
When First Contact was made
The crew were dismayed
When she told them her species and genus

Venus gets a large amount of time particles, that's why women used to pray to Venus to keep themselves young. Please note: since Venus is closer to the Sun, she gets more particles. Uranus gets very few. Oh, I see. Never mind.

Off topic? Just what is the topic, anyway?

How is toilet paper like the starship Enterprise?

They both orbit Uranis in search of Klingons!

There once was a man from Thulcandra

Who met a cute chick named Sandra.

When offered a beer

She said with sneer

I'd rather be seen with a panda..

n. b. :

Here's a message to all who are hearing:

Don't be upset about sneering

I mean no disrespect

to your personal aspect

Though this may now be appearing.

Do you mean the "timeon" or the "timeout" particles since they have different behaviours ? Do not forget that earth send also "time" particles to the sun there is a continuous exchange if not the sun would die earlier not having any more enough time.

The Earth agglomerated from iron-rich material, unlike some of the other planets. I think Venus did not. Our core, composed mostly of iron, has three unpaired electrons per atom in its normal state on our surface, and thus has the capacity to interact with and to create a magnetic field. The out-gassing of the Sun consists of moving ions (among other things) and thus also interacts with and creates magnetic fields. Interestingly, the ozone layer is composed of a compound of oxygen atoms, which can have several different states, including some with unpaired elections as does iron. The ozone layer normally blocks significant amounts of radiation, so that modifications of this layer can change our life here. The core is hot, pressured, and dense - the ozone layer is cold, sparsely filled, and light - yet they both can interact with the solar wind.

Well, there is a little more to this. Other planets have magnetic fields that you would not expect to have them and it is not due to iron. Examples would be Uranus and Jupiter.

The best theory behind the generation of a magnetic field is the magnetic dynamo theory. Basically, a fluid core that has a conducting substance is all that is needed. Yes, iron works, but other substances work as well. Jupiter has mostly hydrogen and about 10% helium.

In the case of Jupiter, the liquid core is mostly hydrogen, which readily conducts. This allows the free movement of electrons in a charge. As you know, a moving change will produce a magnetic field. The rotation provided by Jupiter is the engine that generates the magnetic field.

Note, the magnetic field does not need to be co-aligned with the rotational pole. Uranus has a magnetic pole that is something like 60° off the rotational pole.
