The strange numbers that scientists have seen in the sky since 1960, in the end they seem to have a logical explanation, after a group of astronomers from the University of Toronto in Canada discovered The magnetic tunnel that surrounds the earth and comes to cover Solar System And some stars nearby.
Since the human eye is unable to see these magnetic tunnels, we cannot see with the naked eye the mantle that surrounds the Earth, nor other, more general tunnels that can also exist in the rest of the universe, and that would include nearby stars.
Jennifer West, an astronomer at the University of Toronto, was one of the researchers involved in the study, which can be found at the site arXiv. West, in a press release, argued that “If we looked at the sky, we would see this tunnel-shaped structure in almost every direction we looked, that is, if we had eyes that could see the light from the radio.”.
In addition, West explained that “Magnetic fields do not exist in isolation. Everyone must communicate with each other”, the next step is “A better understanding of how this local magnetic field relates to both the large-scale galactic magnetic field and the smaller magnetic fields of our Sun and Earth.”.
“A few years ago, one of our co-authors, Tom Landecker, told me about an article from 1965, From the Early Days of Radio Astronomy.”The astronomer, who also mentioned it, commented “Based on the preliminary data available at this time, the authors (Matheson and Milne) speculated that these polarized radio signals could originate from our view of the local arm of the galaxy, from within it.”.
Magnetic tunnel associated with “Arctic stimulus” And Fan Zone, studied since the 1960s, these structures that unite the two points have the shape of filaments, like threads, and are located about 350 light-years from Earth, 1,000 light-years away.
“When Jennifer first suggested this to me, I thought it was too ‘misplaced’ to be a possible explanation. But she finally managed to convince me! Now I’m excited to see how the rest of the astronomical community would react.”The famous astronomer Brian Gensler.
Thanks to this discovery, the team was able to determine that the most likely distance of the structures in the solar system is about 350 light-years.. This includes an estimate of the North Pole distance earlier this year based on data from Gaia, which found that nearly the entire spur lies within 500 light-years.
The total length of the tunnel designed by West and his team is about 1,000 light-years. This model corresponds to a wide range of observational properties of the arctic and fan zone, including shape, electromagnetic radiation polarization (that is, how the wave is deflected), and brightness. “This is very clever work,” astronomer Gensler concluded.
