Embry-Riddle Research on Space Plasma Hurricanes Could Lead to New Sources of Energy

Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University

In space the solar wind originating from the sun creates space hurricanes at the boundary of earth’s magnetic field. These hurricanes can transport solar wind plasmas into the magnetosphere. This process transfers the kinetic energy from the solar wind into the heat energy of magnetospheric ions. If they could utilize this mechanism effectively in plasmas created in a laboratory, they could create energy from water. Further research would need to be done to figure out just how much energy this process would be able to transfer.
