  1. May 19,  · The solar wind streams plasma and particles from the sun out into space. Though the wind is constant, its properties aren't. What causes this stream, and how does it affect the Earth?
  2. Jul 02,  · More than 20 years ago, researchers proposed the existence of a space wind--a steady flow of charged particles--inside the Earth's magnetosphere, the region of space .
  3. Jun 08,  · Solar Wind. The solar wind continuously flows outward from the Sun and consists mainly of protons and electrons in a state known as a plasma. Solar magnetic field is embedded in the plasma and flows outward with the solar wind. Different regions on the Sun produce solar wind of different speeds and densities. Coronal holes produce solar wind of high speed, ranging from to .
  4. The user can defy/ignore space winds and turbulence, which include solar winds to galactic winds, interstellar gas in interstellar mediums, inside of nebulae, winds on gas giants, etc. These winds and turbulence move at supersonic or even relativistic speeds, and can be made of plasma, gas and dust, as well as charged particles.
  5. There are two solar winds: a fast, uniform, and steady wind, blowing at km ( miles) per second, and a slow, gusty, and sporadic wind, with about half the speed of the fast one. The two winds originate at different places on the Sun and accelerate to terminal velocity at different distances from it.
  6. Jan 14,  · The question has more or less already been answered but I want to expand on and clarify the answer slightly. As there is (almost) no atmosphere of any kind in space there is nothing to blow around to create a conventional wind such as we would exp.
  7. The Global Geospace Science (GGS) Wind satellite is a NASA science spacecraft launched on November 1, , at UTC, from launch pad 17B at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station (CCAFS) in Merritt Island, Florida, aboard a McDonnell Douglas Delta II rocket. Wind was designed and manufactured by Martin Marietta Astro Space Division in East Windsor, New Jersey.
  8. The Wind Turbine is a power source block added in update (February 28, ). The Wind Turbine will only work on large grid stations. The maximum output power is a function of height, atmospheric density and nearby obstructions. The block measures 3 wide x 3 tall x 3 deep. The maximum possible power output in calm weather is kW, but outputs in excess of kW have been .
