Weird Wednesday ~ Hidden Magnetic Portals




Stargates, Wormholes, and Portals to another Universe have long been the subject of science fiction and fantasy stories. But as science makes great leaps in discovering and understanding the unknown, these stories may become reality.
A wormhole/portal is a hypothetical feature that would provide a shortcut through space/time between two points. 
NASA has discovered portals tens of thousands of kilometers from Earth. While most of them are short-lived, some are vast and sustained. NASA Scientists found that these portals open and close dozens of times each day. As far as the scientists can determine, these portals aid in the transfer of tons of magnetically charged particles that flow from the Sun toward the Earth - causing geomagnetic storms and the Borealis lights. Essentially the portals aid in the transfer of the magnetic field from the Sun to the Earth.
In 2014 the U.S. space agency will launch a new mission called Magnetospheric Multi-scale Mission. This mission will launch four spacecraft which will circle the Earth and then study these portals.

I have yet to find a portal and when I do, I will send a postcard! Seriously though, this is fascinating.
