      Sixth Form Lecture - The Magnetic Sun

      Dr Stephane Regnier – Department of Mathematics Physics and Electrical Engineering at Northumbria University    The Sun is our closest star and plays an important role in the evolution of the planets and life in the solar system. During this lecture, we will look at how the Sun’s magnetic field is key to understanding this, producing magnetic explosions (solar flares) that expel high-energy particles into the solar system and interact with the Earth’s magnetic shield (magnetosphere). Further, we will discuss how physicists make measurements of the Sun and are working towards forecasting the Sun’s behaviour.
