Magnetic Storms Spotted on Venus

(Nature) When magnetic fields of opposite polarity collide and merge, they unleash a torrent of energy. The process, known as magnetic reconnection, can cause flares on the Sun and magnetic storms and shimmering auroras on magnetized planets with substantial atmospheres, such as Earth, Jupiter and Saturn. Now scientists have discovered that magnetic reconnection also happens […]
