Scientists edge one step closer in solving Physics of Space Weather

Scientists have been eluded for many years in uncovering the reality behind space weather. Although it sounds preposterous, and more alien like, yet space weather has significant importance in our lives. Millions of tons of charged, hot plasma gas is thrust by the Sun, each second. This solar wind collides with the magnetic field surrounding the Earth. As a result, it initiates powerful geomagnetic storms that can damage satellites, blackout power grids and totally disrupt cell phone service.

Researchers are of the view that It is quite important for us to predict these solar outbursts, so that we can effectively take up measures to nullify or reduce their detrimental aspects. Most of the researchers have conducted numerous experiments into realizing the physics behind this space weather...
