Electric Currents and Transmission Lines in Space: #
Regardless of scale, the motion of charged particles produces a self-magnetic field that can act on other collections of particles or plasmas, internally or externally. Plasmas in relative motion are coupled via currents that they drive through each other... More here; and here. (more later)
