Title: Solar Wind's Effect on Earth
Url: http://wimedialab.pbslearningmedia.org/resource/ess05.sci.ess.eiu.sol...
Publisher: WGBH Educational Foundation
Description: The Sun produces 'solar wind', a continuous flow of charged particles that can affect us on Earth. It may also release huge storms of charged particles, called coronal mass ejections, that can disrupt communications, navigation systems, and satellites; and cause power outages, such as the extensive Canadian blackout in 1989. This video segment introduces viewers to coronal mass ejections, their effects on Earth's magnetosphere and atmosphere, and their potentially damaging effects on satellites, power grids, and other human infrastructure. The segment is four minutes forty-four seconds in length.
