The Sun’s Electric Field Isn’t as Strong as We Thought!

From SciShow Space.

The sun shapes the solar system in many ways, including through its mysterious solar wind, which was thought to be pushed through the force of the sun’s electric field. Recent observations revealed, though, that that hypothesis may not be entirely correct! Plus, we have a better idea of how Jupiter’s x-ray auroras, that are invisible to the human eye, actually form!
