Donald Scott: Birkeland Currents and the Parker Solar Probe | Space News

We continue our exploration of the early scientific data from NASA’s historic Parker Solar Probe mission to the Sun.

In part one, retired professor of Electrical Engineering Dr. Donald Scott began his analysis some of the most intriguing early findings, including the probe’s “unexpected” detection of magnetic reversals as it has moved through the plasma solar environment. As Dr. Scott continues, he explains why these “switchbacks” could be the telltale signs of the Birkeland currents hypothesized by the Electric Sun model.
