The idea of an invisible barrier shielding the galaxy’s center is not a new one. The concept was first introduced in the second Star Trek pilot. It was later repeated in By Any Other Name and Is There in Truth No Beauty? Moreover, it also appeared in various tie-in fiction, such as the Peter David novel Q-Squared and the Q-Continuum trilogy by Greg Cox. But these stories were mostly speculative, and there is no proof of a galactic barrier in the Star Trek movies.
Recently, Chinese scientists have discovered a new type of invisible barrier preventing cosmic rays from entering the galactic center. They found that this barrier keeps a significant portion of incoming cosmic rays from reaching the galaxy’s supermassive black hole. Researchers believe that this barrier is caused by an unexplained force. In addition, it keeps cosmic ray density at the galactic center below the baseline.
The barrier is located about 11,500 kilometers above the Earth. It can be dangerous for satellites because killer electrons can fry them during intense solar storms. In addition, the barrier shields Earth from incoming killer electrons, which can fry satellites during solar storms. The scientists who discovered this barrier found it in the Van Allen radiation belts, which are clusters of charged particles.
These charged particles could be a powerful shield against cosmic radiation. They could also be a magnified version of solar wind. The magnetic tunnel that wraps around the solar system is an example of the kind of phenomenon that occurs all over the universe. The scientists believe that dark matter plays an important role in explaining galaxy cluster behavior and star movement on the edges of the galaxy.
The heliosphere is a giant protective bubble around the Sun, which is not as dense as scientists had previously thought. The heliosphere acts like an invisible barrier, keeping out most of the material that enters the galaxy and keeps out most of the dangerous cosmic rays. This makes it difficult to study what lies beyond the bubble.
The Gaia space observatory has mapped the region and found that the clouds in this region are separated by hundreds of light years. They also found an empty orb in between them. It’s called the Perseus-Taurus Supershell and it covers an area about 500 light-years across. The supershell was likely created by a cataclysmic supernova millions of years ago. Its formation is thought to have accelerated star formation on its edges.
