Caption

Mars's magnetosphere and magnetosheath. Illustration of Mars (centre right) and its magnetosphere (magnetic field lines shown) protecting the planet and an orbiting satellite (centre left) from cosmic radiation and the solar wind (Sun at left). Most of the charged particles from the Sun are diverted around Mars (deflected solar wind shown), though Mars is far less protected than the Earth. Planetary magnetic fields are compressed into a bow shock on the side facing the Sun, and trail away from the Sun on the other side of the planet, forming a magnetotail. The turbulent boundary area is the magnetosheath. For this illustration with and without arrows, with and without sunlight, and with and without labels, see images C047/5278 to C047/5282.
