Highfrequency flux transfer events detected near Mercury

Highfrequency flux transfer events detected near Mercury

The physical process that creates connections between the magnetic fields emanating from the Sun and a planet - a process known as magnetic reconnection - creates a portal through which solar plasma can penetrate the planetary magnetic field. The opening of these portals, known as flux transfer events , takes place roughly every 8 minutes at Earth and spawns a rope of streaming plasma.
