Cosmic Rays and Solar Flares

Basic purpose of this lecture is to present on Cosmic Rays and Solar Flares. Cosmic rays are fast-moving ionising particles from the Sun. The Earth’s magnetic field prevents them from reaching us because they would be very harmful. Solar flares (bursts of energy from the Sun) interfere with these satellite systems. Cosmic rays are not really rays at all, they are a stream of particles of ionised atoms. They can range from a single proton to the nucleus of an iron atom-or larger. The most common cosmic ray is a alpha particle (3protons and 2 neutrons)
