This is a real time, massively multiplayer online strategy game, based around the concept of interstellar conflict and commerce on a galactic scale. A simple but powerful interface and gameplay makes this game easy to learn but difficult to master.
A flow of atomic nuclei and electrons from the Sun that travels at an average speed of 400 km/s.
Streams of gas particles flowing out from the Sun.
The Sun's corona is too hot to be held back by gravity and expands radially into interplanetary space as the solar wind. The solar wind carries with it the Sun's open magnetic field as the interplanetary magnetic field (IMF). A 'southward' IMF can initiate and sustain geomagnetic activity in the forms of magnetic storms and substorms. Various high and low speed streams may be found in the solar wind which, when they interact, create complex shocks, turbulence and other features. Back to the top.

Solar Wind is a British small press comicbook. Edited by Cosmic Ray (a pseudonym for small press comics publisher Paul Scott), the comic is devoted to gentle parodies of British boys' comics of the 1970's and 80's.
