Caption: Sun and Earth. Illustration of radiation and charged particle from the Sun interacting with the Earth's magnetic field and atmosphere. Some of the incoming radiation and particles are seen being repelled by the Earth's magnetic field, while some penetrate the atmosphere and reach the Earth's surface. One of the vital roles of the Earth's magnetic field is how it protects the planet from high-energy radiation from the Sun.
