From the Ted Talk by Dave Brain: What a planet needs to sustain life

Unscramble the Blue Letters

Other scientists think that magnetic fields may act more like the sails on a ship, enabling the planet to itrecant with more energy from the solar wind than the planet would have been able to interact with by itself. The sails may gather energy from the sloar wind. The magnetic field may gather eegnry from the solar wind that allows even more aptehisromc epcsae to happen. It's an idea that has to be tested, but the effect and how it works seems apparent. That's because we know energy from the solar wind is being dseteopid into our atmosphere here on Earth. That energy is conducted along magnetic field liens down into the polar regions, rutiesnlg in incredibly beautiful aurora. If you've ever experienced them, it's magnificent. We know the energy is getting in. We're trying to measure how many particles are getting out and if the mgteniac field is influencing this in any way.

Original Text

Other scientists think that magnetic fields may act more like the sails on a ship, enabling the planet to interact with more energy from the solar wind than the planet would have been able to interact with by itself. The sails may gather energy from the solar wind. The magnetic field may gather energy from the solar wind that allows even more atmospheric escape to happen. It's an idea that has to be tested, but the effect and how it works seems apparent. That's because we know energy from the solar wind is being deposited into our atmosphere here on Earth. That energy is conducted along magnetic field lines down into the polar regions, resulting in incredibly beautiful aurora. If you've ever experienced them, it's magnificent. We know the energy is getting in. We're trying to measure how many particles are getting out and if the magnetic field is influencing this in any way.
