A team of scientists from the University of Colorado at Boulder discovered invisible "shield" at an altitude of 11.5 thoUSAnd. Km, which protects the Earth from the so-called electron-killers. Killer electrons, accelerated to near-light speed, pose a threat to astronauts and spacecraft during intense solar storms.
Protective barrier has been found in the Van Allen Belt, represent two donut-like areas that hold high-energy charged particles: electrons and protons. The inner radiation belt located at an altitude of about 4 thoUSAnd. Km. External - at an altitude of 17 thoUSAnd. Km. According to scientists, in the region of the inner edge of the outer radiation belt at a height of about 11.5 thoUSAnd. Km was found "shield" with clear boundaries, which prevents the penetration of sverbystryh electrons in the Earth's atmosphere.


"This is almost the same as if these electrons strike the glass wall in space," - said one of the study's authors, Daniel Baker. - "Protective barrier shield reminiscent of the sci-fi movie" The Way stars. "It's really mysterious phenomenon. "

Previously, scientists believed that the high-energy electrons accelerated to a speed of more than 160 thoUSAnd. Km per second, penetrate into the upper atmosphere, which interact with air molecules. However, using two probes RBSP found out that electrons barrier stops killer long before the penetration into the atmosphere.
