So having read a couple of other questions on here, and postulating over this for a while, here's my question.
Is it possible to have two magnetars in a distant binary orbit, with an earthlike planet in between them at the orbital center?
The goals of this world:
The planet is split in two, and stable. Strong magnetic fields produce wild and dangerous weather, and the ability to sail through the air by riding the field for buoyancy. This also allows for heavier than air creatures like dragons to work, since they could just have some form of strong natural magnetic field.
Absolute science is not necessary, I'm looking to make this plausibly accurate, since of course this could never occur in nature.
EDIT: I'm assuming I can avoid the gravitational problem due to a number of factors. Firstly, the core was split in half as well, and the liquid part would flow together faster than the solid part. Without as much pressure, the two halves of the solid core in an hourglass shaped liquid core would produce some weird effects as well. Also, the two halves are only a couple miles apart. So water and air fall down between, but water is vaporized and air is heated, leading to them both floating back up. Aside from a spectacular set of falls near every ocean, and a perpetual mist rising from the crevice, I'd like to keep the rest of the physics reasons for the halves not smashing together mostly absent.
My hope is that having it suspended between two magnetars allows the two halves to remain separate and stable. Perhaps the split is not complete, or was and the mantle merged before the crust? here's no in world time limit on this stabilizing. Just so long as I have a reason it IS stable.
