Planet Earth is surrounded by a system of magnetic fields known as the magnetosphere. This vast, comet-shaped system deflects charged particles coming from the sun, shielding our planet from harmful particle radiation and preventing solar wind (i.e., a stream of charged particles released from the sun's upper atmosphere) from eroding the atmosphere.

✅GEOMAGNETIC STORM led to the destruction of the 40 Starlink satellites. ✅When CMEs strike the Earth, they cause geomagnetic storms that disrupt the Earth's magnetic field. ✅They are caused by the release of magnetic energy associated with sunspots. ✅The most famous geomagnetic storm of all time was the Carrington Storm of 1859. ✅The Starlink programme is a satellite communication system manufactured by SpaceX
