Abstract:

It was found that a model with a southward interplanetary magnetic field leads to a natural explanation of the SD currents. Speculative aspects of the problem as they appear at this time are discussed. It should be remembered that this problem is amenable to revolutionary progress by observations from rockets or satellites which go out more than a few earths radii.
