Magnetospheres

I've been reading a lot about the magnetospheres for stellar objects; that stuff is utterly fascinating. Seems weird to think that it's one of those areas where the physics of human-sized and smaller objects scales up so neatly to scales far bigger than we are, from planets up to the magnetic envelope surrounding the sun protecting everything nearby us from interstellar conditions. Glad there are sats up there surveying the various scales and kinds of this.
