The Sun's magnetic field warps its environment

from Physics World

The Sun's extended magnetic field provides a vital shield for astronauts; without it they would be left exposed to potentially deadly cosmic rays entering in from outside the solar system. Now, a group of researchers in the U.K. and the U.S. offers an explanation of how this protective field is generated and sustained by violent processes at the surface of the Sun. The findings provide another insight into the solar magnetic field -- an incredibly complicated physical system. more
