Description
English: The heliospheric current sheet results from the influence of the Sun's rotating magnetic field on the plasma in the interplanetary medium (solar wind). The wavy spiral shape has been likened to a ballerina's skirt.
Русский: Гелиосферный токовый слой является результатом воздействия вращающегося магнитного поля Солнца на плазму (солнечный ветер), находящуюся в межпланетной среде. Волнистую спиральную форму можно уподобить юбке балерины.
