We finally know why the mysterious waves survive the journey through Earth’s turbulent “shock” region

The waves that are created as the solar wind hits Earth’s magnetic field seem to escape the turbulent region around our planet, but how they do this has remained a mystery.

Now, a research team has discovered how these waves appear to be alive: They continue past the leading ‘shock’ region into a region called ‘shock’ and then create ‘clone’ waves with identical qualities, thus explaining how they seem to cross this region in the near-a land Void. Therefore, what astronomers had been observing for decades were not the waves created by the solar wind but rather the newly produced “clones” of the waves.
