Scientists warn that such storms can disrupt GPS systems, but they also provide further understanding of the effects of weather in space.
Professor Mike Lockwood, a space scientist at the University of Reading, said that tornadoes could be a global phenomenon on planets and moons with magnetic fields and plasmas.
He continued: “Until now, it has not been confirmed that there are space plasma hurricanes, so proving it with such a remarkable observation is unbelievable.”
Tropical storms are associated with enormous amounts of energy, and these space hurricanes must be created by an unusually large and rapid transfer of solar wind energy and charged particles to Earth’s upper atmosphere.
Plasma and magnetic fields are found in the atmosphere of planets throughout the universe, so the results indicate that space hurricanes should be a widespread phenomenon.
Previous observations revealed space hurricanes on Mars, Saturn and Jupiter, similar to hurricanes in the low atmosphere, along with solar gas that circulates in the depths of the sun’s atmosphere, and perhaps the recent discovery is the first time that a hurricane has been observed in the Earth’s upper atmosphere.
The team explained that space hurricanes open a rapid transfer channel of energy from space to the ionosphere and the thermosphere, which may help reveal important details of space weather effects such as increased satellite clouds, disruptions in high-frequency radio communications, and increased errors in the radar position and satellite navigation. And communication systems.
