Turbulent Dynamo Target
A Cryogenics Systems operator installs the target for a Discovery Science experiment aimed at recreating intergalactic plasmas. The campaign’s goal is to demonstrate amplification of magnetic fields by the non-linear turbulent dynamo mechanism in order to explain why giant magnetic fields exist throughout the universe (see "Probing the Mysteries of Cosmic Magnetic Fields"
). A proton “exploding pusher” backlighter is below the two disk targets facing each other.Download hi-res image
