[WATCH VIDEO: Plasma Outflow From Plasmasphere To Magnetosphere] Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A study published in the journal Annales Geophysicae provides the first conclusive proof of the existence of plasmaspheric wind. Researchers detected this plasmaspheric wind while analyzing data from the European Space Agency's (ESA) Cluster spacecraft. "After long scrutiny of the data, there it was, a slow but steady wind, releasing about [2.2 lbs] of plasma every...

Suck It Up! Sun Provides Insight Into How Young Stars Grow
2013-06-21 04:26:50

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Our Sun erupted on June 7, 2011, sending tons of hot plasma blasting into space. Some of the plasma fell back to the surface of the Sun, sparking bright flashes of ultraviolet light. A new study from the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics (CfA) examines the dramatic event to provide new insights into how young stars grow by consuming nearby gas. NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory captured the eruption and subsequent...

Hannes Olof Gösta Alfvén (May 30, 1908 - April 2, 1995) was a Swedish plasma physicist born in Norrköping, Sweden. Alfvén received his PhD from the University of Uppsala in 1934. His thesis was titled "Investigations of the Ultra-short Electromagnetic Waves." He was originally trained as an electrical power engineer and later moved on to research and teaching in the fields of plasma physics. Alfvén made many contributions to plasma physics, including theories describing the...

Heliopause -- The heliopause is the boundary where our Sun's solar wind is stopped by the interstellar medium. The solar wind blows a "bubble" in the interstellar medium (the rareified hydrogen and helium gas that permeates the galaxy). The point where the solar wind's strength is no longer great enough to push back the interstellar medium is known as the heliopause, and is often considered to be the outer "border" of the solar system. The distance to the heliopause is not precisely...

Solar Prominence -- Solar prominences are large arch-shaped structures observable in the solar corona. These often have a twist and occasionally become unstable, ejecting plasma and magnetic flux out from the sun. The physics of solar prominence instability is believed to be governed by magnetic forces and magnetic helicity issues. It is thought that instability occurs when a magnetic flux tube becomes excessively twisted. ----- Click here to learn more on this topic from eLibrary:
