A fundamental theoretical difference between traditional solar physics/astronomy and plasma physics is introduced. The Standard Model holds that magnetic field lines move or merge and frequently break and reconnect. Many solar physicists claim magnetic reconnection is responsible for enormous energetic outbursts like solar flares. Conventional astronomers also state that magnetic reconnection in Earth’s magnetosphere is responsible for Earth’s aurora, and they now envision the process in the magnetospheres of many planets. Thunderbolts colleague Dr. Jeremy Dunning-Davies explores the plasma cosmology alternative to the reconnection concept.
