sun supports life, Initiates metabolism and provides
all of the energy for the solar system - for free!
It is also, however a volatile and unpredictable
father-figure for our solar-system. The Sun has
a peak-energy output cycle every 11 years, accompanied
by a flip in the poles - making for a total solar
cycle of 22 years.
The solar environment has many direct effects on
plant metabolism, geomagnetism, global weather patterns,
human consciousness and can also fry or disrupt
satellites, spaceships or deep-space probes.
We are somewhat shielded from the high-energy charged
particles of the solar wind by our earths own magnetic
field, which forms an envelope we ride along in.
