I have no way to test an idea that I have been thinking about, but would like some one to test it. To keep it simple all you would need to do is take a piece of nickle and shock it with electricity. This would need to be done in a place that has a way to test if there is an Ionosphere. This is why I believe this will work. Our own planet has an Ionosphere that is caused by liquid nickle at the middle of our core. This nickle moves around causing magnetic flow. In order to simulate this you could take solid nickle, and then electrocute it. My hope is that it will cause the nickle to form magnetic lines where the electricity flows though the nickle. Creating a small Ionosphere would be great for those going into space. It could protect them against the gamma radiation from the sun. Can some one please test this, and let me know what the results are.
