Abstract:

Our sun is a star that powers the earth. It gives life, creates weather, warms the oceans, the land, and even the ice. At the frigid North Pole, scientists fly through a supercharged aurora that is shaped by violent solar storms. Infra-red and x-ray satellite eyes peer deep into the interior of the sun to peel away layers never before imagined. How does the solar wind ranging through space at a million miles per hour affect our earth?
