This one does not need air-breaking. I like it!

But instead of magnetism, the gravity may work even better. Two massive objects with non-negligible gravity between themselves.

That's my favorite idea.

If their gravity is significant enough, then it is incorrect to describe that they splash into the Atlantic - it's the Atlantic that splashes into them.

I'd prefer solutions that do not destroy the Earth :-)
