1.d.5. Magnetic field of the Sun, the Earth, and other planets

The gravito-magnetic field in Global Mechanics –without the relativistic connotation– by the structure of the mass of the atomic nucleus and creation of the electron mass implies a generation of a magnetic field by the mass of the Earth and rest of the planets in their rotation.

According to Wikipedia, the magnetic field of the Earth is a consequence of the existence of melted iron in its interior and Coriolis effect. However, it is not a sufficiently proved theory. We would like to remind the reader once again of speculative nature of phenomena observed due to lack of a general theory of Astrophysics.

Global Physics offers a possible explanation for the magnetic field of the Earth, as well as for why gravitational field accompanying the Earth could be the physical basis for its new interpretation of the classic Michelson-Morley experiment.

Let us now see the following elements related to the magnetic field of the Sun, the Earth, and other planets in the Universe:

  • The magnetic field of the Sun

    Global Physics explains what magnetic fields are and how mass creates to produce expansion of the Universe when stars emit electromagnetic waves, as they become partially undone via nuclear fusion reactions.

    Consequently, the Sun –and stars with its same characteristics or with a high rotation– will have a powerful magnetic field.

    In other words, the magnetic field of the Sun and luminous stars is not principally due to their internal composition –iron or other heavy elements– but to their rotation and the nuclear fusion reactions and emissions of photons and charged particles.

  • Composition of the Earth and other planets of the Universe

    The conductivity of the chemical elements of the Earth and other planets will be a vital factor when it comes to the existence of a magnetic field.

    The more conductive composition of the Earth and other planets is the stronger magnetic field –provoked by other factors– will tend to be.

  • Rotation of the Earth

    Rotational movement of the planets is directly responsible for the creation of the Earth’s magnetic field. Rotation of the planets via the Coriolis effect generates different forces that act upon various elements that make up the composition of the Earth, due to their distinct spatial location. These forces correspond to force of gravity as centripetal acceleration and to force of tangential acceleration due to rotational movement.

    The perfect elasticity of the Global Aether –quantum foam, strings or space-time with mechanical properties– is what gives the order to the magnetic field around the Earth.


  • The magnetic field of the Earth and other planets in the Solar System

    Currently, the explanation of the magnetic field of the Earth is not a final theory. The spatial configuration of the atomic structure gives us a clue.

    The previous analysis is rather classical and incomplete. If we go deeper into rotational movement effect upon the reticular structure of matter , –Global Aether (gravitational - kinetic - mass)– and we take into account that all lines of gravitational tension follow mass, we can imagine that variation of these force lines cannot be completely homogeneous. As such, it will generate a magnetic field.

    Regardless of elastic torsion of Global Aether in the formation of mass, Global Mechanics shows how the mass of protons and neutrons in the nuclei of atoms increases the gravito-magnetic field using torsion of the filaments of Global Aether. The same mechanism also holds for quarks and other subatomic particles.

    This torsion occurs because the filaments of the reticular structure should either form part of the mass of elementary particles or surround the mass of said particles. In other words, the existence of numerous particles of mass in rotation transversely distorts tension of the longitudinal curvature of Global Aether –also produced by the mass– even when the mass as a whole has no electric charge.

    • Simple Physics experiment

      Something similar to the difference between a ball moving between sheets and many balls moving between many sheets, that they are very close together.

    Due to this, even a neutron star in rapid rotation produces a substantial magnetic field.

    • Simple Physics experiment

      If we pass strings between a group of balls, marbles or even tennis balls, we will observe that the strings would acquire a specific rotation due to geometric forms they adopt between the balls.

      Let us remember rotation or the torsion of lines of the tension of the reticular structure is indeed what Global Mechanics calls “magnetic field.”

    Of course, other characteristics or factors affect the Earth’s magnetic field. For example, extended explanation of the metallic elements in the interior of the Earth which, when charged in motion, generate a magnetic field.

    On the other hand, perhaps internal electric currents are a consequence of Earth’s magnetic field, and not the other way around.

    It is important to note that the bubble called magnetosphere, created by the magnetic field of the Earth, gets very close to the surface of the planet at magnetic poles. The localization is coherent with both classical explanation and new proposal; as magnetic poles are very close to the rotational axis.

    Both explanations are complementary.

    On the contrary, the Coriolis effect is smaller at the Equator.

    An even more bold idea would be to think Earth’s magnetic field produces a small additional alignment of the Earth’s elementary particles. With time, this could present a spring-like effect, and consequently a change of polarity in Earth’s magnetic field. We like this idea, but we admit there is little probability of it being correct.

    The planet Jupiter has a magnetic field ten times stronger than Earth’s field despite not having as much iron in its interior as our planet.

    Another planet, which has a tremendous magnetic field, is Saturn. The internal composition of Saturn is similar to Jupiter –mainly Hydrogen and Helium. Thus, it does not seem the presence of iron or heavy elements in the Earth is the leading cause when it comes to its magnetic field.

    Characteristics of the planet Saturn are the following: it takes 10 hours for one rotation to occur, and its mass is 95 times that of the Earth, with a density lower than water.

    Name of the Hydrogen present in Saturn and Jupiter is metallic Hydrogen; as it is extremely compressed, it behaves as an excellent conductor. This name is because metals are excellent conductors of electrons.

    Powerful magnetic field of Saturn seems to be responsible for its beautiful rings.

  • The physical basis for the new interpretation of the Michelson-Morley experiment

    In Global Physics, the LUM Aether (Luminiferous, universal, and mobile) is the gravity field or tension of longitudinal curvature of the Global Aether.

    According to the Lense-Thirring Effect, the rotational movement of the Earth could drag the LUM Aether (Luminiferous, universal, and mobile), and it would be an immediate elucidation of the Michelson-Morley experiment without making time relative. In other words, the reason given presented in detail in the book Theory of Relativity, Elements, and Criticism.

It is also not surprising that if big black balls and stars have some characteristics typically present in elementary particles –due to being groups of these particles– the Earth will try to be a limited imitation.
