About THEMIS Space Weather Report
NASA launched a fleet of five satellites called THEMIS, the Time History of Events and Macroscale Interactions during Substorms...
Update: Appears that we could use another revolutionary breakthrough... Theoretical Physics Professor, Dr. Michio Kaku, stresses that it's "better to prepare for the big storm, than not."
Sun Often "Tears Out A Wall" In Earth's Solar Storm Shield
Earth's magnetic field, which shields our planet from particles streaming outward from the Sun, often develops two holes that allow the largest leaks, according to researchers sponsored by NASA and the National Science Foundation. Read more.

The sun's gravity is so great, it manages to keep the dozens of dwarf plants beyond Pluto in orbit.... Leaving the range of earth's gravitational field, takes you towards the sun...
Once the Sun starts to reach its Red Giant phase, it won't gain mass because of the law of conservation. However, its volume will increase to accommodate Helium Fusion. :)
NASA Video explanations (new window)
Earth's magnetosphere works mostly like a bar magnet: View video. Same principal, magnets with opposite polarity attract each other; and magnets with similar polarity repel...
Note: The magnet in the tube of iron filings has the same magnetic polarity as the Earth. When a bar magnet is placed against the tube, the filings trace out a line: Video: view Filings
THEMIS Finds Trigger of Northern Lights Eruptions
Researchers have discovered that an explosion of magnetic energy powers sudden brightening and rapid movements of the Northern Lights.
