Not just that the sun also has magnetic properties but that it's electromagnetic on a fundamental level and the earth, and other bodies in the solar system, are part of a circuit. The same principle likely applies on the galactic level also.

Only a corrupt democrat would use tax dollars to have a telescope named after them, instead of a scientist.
