The strength of the total magnetic field in our Milky Way from radio synchrotron measurements is about 6µG (0.6 nT), averaged over a radius of about 1 kpc around the Sun. Diffuse polarized radio emission and Faraday rota- tion of the polarized emission from pulsars and background sources show many small-scale magnetic features, but the overall field structure in our Galaxy is still under debate. - In nearby galaxies, radio synchrotron observations re- veal dynamically important magnetic fields… CONTINUE READING
