A new book describes recent results defining the many pathways and foreshock, bow shock, magnetosheath, and magnetopause phenomena connecting the solar wind to the dayside magnetosphere.
Sometimes the conditions in the solar wind can change dramatically over short distances. Satellite observations of these features show that they’re more complex than previously thought.

This prolific researcher helped us understand the interactions of the solar wind and coronal mass ejections with Earth’s magnetic field.
A NASA stereo-imaging mission called TWINS continues to push the boundaries of what we know about the region of space close to Earth.
A combination of data from satellites and ground-based instruments gives new insight into solar wind-magnetosphere-ionosphere interactions.
A new analysis of three space storms reveals the mechanisms of particle loss from the Van Allen belts.
Data from the Cassini spacecraft show that the cusp regions of Saturn’s magnetic field—where it connects to the Sun’s magnetic field—have similarities to Earth’s and also intriguing differences.
Researchers make the first short-term observation of sodium flares in Mercury’s exosphere.
