I’m re-posting this nicely written, concise piece of reasoning to introduce Louis Hissink’s Crazy World, which happens to be an electrical one. Well all of ours is, but he’s actually aware of it and quite thoughtful about it. There are many interesting, insightful articles at his site. Cheers, Louise!
Almost a century ago,or perhaps more than a century ago, science determined from the knowledge that the earth had a magnetic field that the only place it could have been generated was in the core via a dynamo mechanism. Science then did not know about the solar wind, electrified space plasma or the Van Allen belts. Science could not have explained it any other way. Science did not know about space electricity so the standard model then involved a simple radiating sun, and inert matter-less space in which were suspended planets all behaving according to the laws of motion described by Isaac Newton. Science knew about electric currents in wires and the generation of magnetic fields, but as science also was totally ignorant of space plasma, the earth-centred dynamo theory was the only plausible explanation possible.
Fast forward to 2014 and we now know about space plasma, the Van Allen…
