Website Detail Page

published by the Space Science Institute
At this site you'll find information and images about plasmas, solar flares, and magnetic storms. You'll learn about the solar wind--a stream of particles from the sun--which interacts with Earth's magnetic field and changes the weather in space. There are interactive illustrations and games too. The Space Weather Center is produced at the Space Science Institute.
