The case of the missing electrons

The case of the missing electrons

A new scientific study has proposed a new hypothesis for a long-standing mystery in atmospheric science. For many years, scientists have wondered why the concentration of electrons in Earth’s atmosphere suddenly drops in a region dozens of miles above the Earth, which some call the “D-Region Ledge.”

According to a recent Space.com report, an investigative team is now hypothesizing that tiny meteor dust particles higher in the atmosphere might be responsible for “sucking up” the so-called missing electrons.

One of the study authors says of the electron deficiency, “It's the most dramatic gradient anywhere in the ionosphere. It really is very conspicuous, so it's begging for an explanation."

In the video below, Dr. Michael Clarage, one of the SAFIRE Project scientists, places this mystery into a larger context. 

The SAFIRE Project is an independent team of researchers building a unique plasma discharge chamber to study a wide variety of electrical phenomena. Dr. Clarage presents his thoughts on the missing electrons, the electrical conditions in Earth’s environment and on his role as part of the SAFIRE Project team.

The planets, due to the gravitational effects of changing the specific density of the depth of the planet, so it can reach the place where the warp atoms and electrons of them fleeing out and generate the electrical field around the planet. Planet, in its evolution, it acts as a living being and cheeses and more expensive. Maybe the Earth is now in the process of expanding and now "is sucked to the outer atmosphere with electrons. A similar situation and on Mars, where he also lost the water and the atmosphere. Maybe we are waiting for that process.
