Autogenous and efficient acceleration of energetic ions upstream of Earth’s bow shock

Autogenous and efficient acceleration of energetic ions upstream of Earth’s bow shock

Autogenous and efficient acceleration of energetic ions upstream of Earth’s bow shock, Published online: 12 September 2018; doi:10.1038/s41586-018-0472-9

Observations of a hot flow anomaly accelerating solar-wind ions suggest a mechanism for such acceleration—a Fermi acceleration trap caused by Earth’s bow shock interacting with the solar wind.
