Main Question or Discussion Point
Most extraterrestrial helium is found in a plasma state, with properties quite different from those of atomic helium. In a plasma, helium's electrons are not bound to its nucleus, resulting in very high electrical conductivity, even when the gas is only partially ionized. The charged particles are highly influenced by magnetic and electric fields. For example, in the solar wind together with ionized hydrogen, the particles interact with the Earth's magnetosphere giving rise to Birkeland currents and the aurora.
Given the above quote reference Helium within our Heliosphere, I have a grouping of questions for the electromagnetic wise.
If Earth and Jupiter were both placed within a dense Helium plasma region/field of our Heliosphere at the same time; and considering He plasma's high electrical conductivity; could one expect the two planets to interact with one another, electromagnetically? Why or why not?
Thanks for any replies.
