|Mysteries of the Sun pt 1/5 - Space Weather|
This video describes the direct and dramatic effects that eruptions on the sun can cause at Earth.
|Mysteries of the Sun pt 2/5 - Solar Variability|
This variability drives the solar cycle, during which the north and south magnetic poles reverse position approximately every 11 years.
|Mysteries of the Sun pt 3/5 - Heliosphere|
The solar wind streams out from the sun until it collides with material from the rest of space.
|Mysteries of the Sun pt 4/5 - Magnetosphere|
Earth is enveloped in a protective magnetic envelope called the magnetosphere.
|Mysteries of the Sun pt 5/5 - Ionosphere Troposphere and Mesosphere|
Understanding such variability is crucial since it can, in turn, degrade radio communication as well as satellite orbits.
