Detail Page

published by the Space Science Institute
This site offers information and images about plasmas, solar flares, and magnetic storms. Users will find out about the "solar wind," and its influence on a stream of particles from the sun which leads to interaction with Earth's magnetic field and consequently the change in space weather. Interactive illustrations and games are also included.
