    Default MMS Captures Turbulent Plasma Reconnection



    Surprised that I'd yet to see a NASA article linked here. Found this to be interesting. The MMS captured a reconnection event in turbulent plasma, which until this particular mission had yet to be observed.

    Everyone has their favorite sources.....

    Thanks for posting. Magnetic reconnection is a powerful astrophysical phenomenon with huge practical implications for controlled fusion as well.
