A strong interaction between moon and solar wind was measured: scientists

According to a report, the lunar space environment is much more active than it was assumed. Some scientists have measured a strong and varied interaction between the solar and moon.



Do you know solar wind is the continuous flow of plasma from the sun that can affect the planet in solar system and contributes in causing aurora on Earth? The Sweden researchers have found that the surface of the moon, and also local magnetic fields of lunar crust, reflect some of the solar wind.

The observation will help scientists to understand variations on the moon surface and its long time effects.
