“Sun Current”

“He bathed in the sun’s light, and it burned away his fear, and his hope.” —Parables of the Allspring

Definition/Summary:

Current sheet

  • Electric current that is confined to a surface, rather than being spread throughout space
  • The largest occurring current sheet in the Solar System is the so-called Heliospheric current sheet, which is about 10,000 km thick, and extends from the Sun and out beyond the orbit of Pluto

Magnetohydrodynamics (MHD)

  • The field of science studying these sheets is this is the study of the behavior of electrically conductive fluids: if there is an electric current through part of the volume of such a fluid, magnetic forces tend to expel it from the fluid, compressing the current into thin layers or “sheets” that pass through the volume
