The ‘space hurricane’ appeared above the North Pole, the study says

  • Until now, it was uncertain whether space hurricanes even existed.
  • The space observed by the research team in the Earth’s ionosphere was moving in the direction of Hurricane Counterclockwise.
  • The findings suggest that space hurricanes should be a widespread phenomenon.

And now we have hurricanes to worry about.

According to new research, scientists have discovered for the first time that spinning at the North Pole is called a “space hurricane”. According to the research, the plasma’s mass of about -00 miles wide was located several hundred miles above the North Pole and “rained” instead of water, the study said.

Mike Woodwood, a space scientist at the University of Reading in the UK, who co-authored the study, said it was uncertain whether even a space storm existed at the moment.

The observations made by satellites in August-August 2014 were found only during a predetermined analysis led by scientists from Shandong University in China.

The authors say more studies are needed, especially since this type of geographic activity can disrupt GPS satellites.

In the Earth’s ionosphere, the spacecraft was moving counterclockwise in the direction of a research team (as hurricanes do in the Northern Hemisphere), has many spiral weapons and lasts about eight hours, slowly collapsing.

In many ways, this space hurricane feels like the lower atmosphere of the earth we are familiar with here like hurricanes.

Tropical storms and hurricanes occur on warm bodies of water in the Earth’s lower atmosphere, such as the oceans and the Gulf. When hot, humid air rises, it creates a low pressure area near the surface that sucks in the surrounding air, generating strong winds and creating clouds that lead to heavy rainfall.

“Tropical storms are heavily associated with energy radiation, and these space storms must be created by the unusually large and rapid transfer of solar wind energy radiation and charged particles into the Earth’s upper atmosphere.”

Hurricanes like ours on Earth have also been observed in the lower atmospheres of Mars, Jupiter and Saturn, while enormous solar storms have been observed in the solar system, the University of Reading said in a statement. However, the existence of space storms in the atmosphere above the planets has not been discovered before.

“Plasma and magnetic fields in the planet’s atmosphere exist throughout the universe, so the findings suggest that space storms should be a widespread phenomenon,” Lockwood said.

In addition, according to the study, the fact that space storms occur during periods of low geomagnetic activity suggests that they may be relatively normal in our solar system and beyond. This highlights the importance of improved weather monitoring of space, which could disrupt GPS systems, the University of Reading said in a statement.

The findings were published in the peer-reviewed British journal Nature Communications.
